PC Games / Diablo III: Coming May 15th
« on: August 01, 2011, 09:15:26 am »
Read about it here, or here.

Basically:
-There will be no offline play. At all.
-You will be able to buy and sell any item you find on the in-game auction house for real money.
-There will be a listing fee and a sale fee, but you get a few free listings each week.
-Only items other players find will drop. Blizzard will not sell any items themselves.
-You will be able to transfer the money to your battle.net account or cash-out using an unnamed money transfer service.
-There will also be a gold currency auction house.

I personally don't care about the offline only part, as I would have only every played online anyway. It sucks for people who would have played alone heavily, but it's not a dealbreaker for me.

As for the real-money auction house, it intrigues me. I'll be able to make a little bit of dough playing Diablo 3, and since this item buying would have happened anyways, it's better to have it under Blizzard's control.

What are your thoughts on this?

PC Games / Terraria, a 2-d Minecraft-inspired RPG
« on: April 24, 2011, 10:44:28 am »
This game is currently in development. It appears to be a Minecraft-inspired RPG with a ton of monsters, crafting exploring and dynamic water. Check out the video:

Here is a several-part "Let's Play" by the developers. This game looks pretty awesome even in its alpha state. I'm eagerly looking forward to it. What do you all think?

House is back! I didn't see a thread for season 6 so I made one.

The season premiere was really good. Anyone else seen it? It will be online this Tuesday if you haven't.

PC Games / Heroes of Newerth - Another DotA clone
« on: July 12, 2009, 11:39:19 am »
So, the people that made Savage (and Savage 2!), the hybrid FPS RTS, are making a DotA-clone (with an emphasis on clone). Their website is a little bare-bones, but their Facebook page has a few screenshots and a video. It's currently in closed beta and I have 2 extra keys. If anyone is a DotA fan and wants to try this out, send me a message with your email address and I'll send it to ya. Note that it is under an NDA, so you can't talk about it publicly. If I were in the beta, I wouldn't be able to talk about it, but if I were in it, I would say it's really good even in its current state.

PC Games / Blizzcon '08

Anybody else going to Blizzcon this year? I'm trying to get tickets atm. Last year was a ton of fun, and this year time it looks to be even better.

PC Games / Fantastic Contraption - New physics game
« on: July 13, 2008, 08:05:52 pm »
I stumpbleupon'd this little game and immediately fell in love with it. The premise is simple: get a small ball or block to the target are using nothing but a few sticks and wheels. However, things quickly become complicated as you have to navigate past various obstacles. You can then share your contraptions with other people with just a URL.

I've spent 6+ hours playing this in the past day and I highly recommend it.

PC Games / Crazy Machines 2
« on: June 25, 2008, 02:00:36 pm »
I saw this game on steam: http://storefront.steampowered.com/v/index.php?area=app&AppId=18400

It seems similar to the old Incredible Machines series. Has anyone tried it out? Is it worth the 20$ cost?

PC Games / Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
« on: September 13, 2007, 07:53:27 pm »
So yeah, the demo for this game dropped on fileplanet a few days ago and I today I gave it a test and holy crap. This game is like Battlefield 2, except with real objective maps like from UT2K4. It also runs very smoothly (no glitches like BF2 is riddled with) with beautiful graphics.

The general feel of the game is very smooth, theres no hitching, no lag from what I've seen, weapons feel powerful and fun. Theres 5 classes, each with 2-4 weapons each and a ton of equipment. The soldier, for example, can deploy timed explosives that you can place on a surface or armored thing, and grenades, and 4 choices of a main weapon. Then theres the standard medic with it's revive thing, but then theres the technician-type person, who can deploy automatic turrets. And I don't mean little things half your height, I mean giant guns that are so big they have to be flown in. And another class gets the same thing, except artillery. And its powerful artillery. It can shoot pretty much across the map, and destroy anything it hits. Theres a cooldown on firing it, of course, and targeting it makes you vulnerable.

Anyways, if you liked BF2 or BF2142, then you have to try this demo. Linky: http://www.fileplanet.com/168864/160000/fileinfo/Enemy-Territory:-Quake-Wars-Demo-(FilePlanet-Premiere)

Forum Games / The Oxymoron game!
« on: April 01, 2007, 05:14:16 pm »
In this game, you make an oxymoron for the word or thing the previous poster said!

Example:
Poster one: Meatballs

Poster two: Meatless meatballs.
                 Shrimp.

Poster three: Jumbo shrimp.

and etc.

I'll start with this:

Water.

Everything Else / My flash game
« on: January 31, 2007, 05:57:40 pm »
Hello forum-go-ers, I would like to share with you my flash game that I am working on. I am hoping to get some suggestions/criticism/show off. Also, I know there are other flash threads, but they are all dead or about flash movies.

New version!

Here is the latest version: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/49170230/

Any thoughts appreciated!

Everything Else / My Oreo's keep falling into my milk :(
« on: November 15, 2006, 07:14:04 pm »
I like to dip Oreo's in milk before eating them so they are nice and soggy, but they keep breaking off before I can get them out. Anyone else have this problem? This is a severe problem, I need help ASAP!

Console Games / My friend got to play the Wii early
« on: October 02, 2006, 07:49:04 pm »
Yes, you read that right. My friend who had connections with the manager at a local EB-games invited him over for "something important"- and it turns out he had a Wii in the back, and let my friend and some other people play it for 2 hours. I am jealous, to say the least.

He says the controller is really easy to learn, like in 10 minutes. He also said of the 3 games he played (zelda, red steel, and rayman), that rayman was the most fun. I don't really know what it was about, but he said something along the lines of "rabbit liberation". AKA, dead rising with rabbits? I dunno, there was also a plot somewhere in there.

All I can say is, grr, I want to play the Wii! Also, where is the spellcheck button?
