It was almost as fulfilling as laying my dick on a window sill and repeatedly slamming the window down onto myself screaming "the power of christ compels thee"

Dune 2 with Orks...




On a slightly related note.



UT2004s onslaught is still as good as a long, continuous blowjob.


Yup, it is...

You can't have had many blowjobs.

Or you haven't played enough onslaught...



And since you can't ever have played enough onslaught...
You can't, and haven't either, so we both should play more...

Point is, play onslaught.

Might not be as good as sexual favours, but one of the next best things for sure...

I seem to remember beating Brood War is a singularly unsatisfying experience. You might be better to go for one of these blowjob games Toaster mentions.

Fable is tomorrow! Well, actually, Fable is today, but no one loves Montana enough to ship it on time. So, Fable will be tomorrow! This makes me very happy.


Having said that, I've heard they're planning something big in City of Heroes to coincide with Issue 2 (like a Rikti invasion), so if that happens I'll probably play CoH instead.

If City of Heroes occupies me until November 9th when Halo 2 is released, then I will play Fable next year. As far as Warcraft, I much preferred Starcraft. When I play Warcraft, I feel like I have four choices as far as race goes, and they're all Terran. I'm more of a Zerg/Protoss player. Heroes are good in the campaign, but they suck in multiplayer. Yeah, Starcraft was the better game.

I really enjoyed the game aesthatically, I'm more than willing to follow Blizzard into cartooniness. I'd much rather you abstract your art a bit than go for photo-realism and completely miss the target.

What I hated was that half the units were entirely useless unless you babysat them. You had to sit there and wait to push a button so that they would activate their special ability, which was the entire reason to build them in the first place. (For instance, just about any magic user class.) That prevents you from moving several groups against your enemies at the same time, unless you're way better with quickeys and multitasking than I am willing to be. (Warcraft senses... tingling! Oh shit! My sorcerers are in trouble!)

I'm probably gonna pick up Sims2 today when I get Fable. The hilarious screenshots have convinced me.

I've quit playing CoH. I never could find anybody on there I really liked to play with, and non of my RL friends play it. I'll play regular games again until WoW comes out.

Silent Hill 4.

SH is one of my favourite series.
This one isnt very scarey and the enemy designs are just pure shit when compared to the past entries. Those bugs, the slugs that do nothing and those roots/tentacle heads that only hurt you if you walk into them seem like rushed ideas.

I had high hopes considering SH4 was made by the guys who did SH2.

If Fable turns out like Black and White did then I will cry for Peter Molyneux' soul.

In other news, Firered and Leafgreen should be coming out next week.

So as to avoid the continued de-railment of "So. Your Day. How Was It?" thread, I'll stick this here. More Eternal Darkness discussion.

I just finished the Brother Luther chapter again... damn. That poor guy just gets it worse and worse every time. I (almost) don't want to see what's going to happen to him on the red run-through.

Also, Pilus seems to be getting a lot more uppity with X' eletoath than he was with Ulyaoth. "You need me, bitch!" was almost expected to be heard.

Pazaak is really frustrating. It's pretty difficult to beat an oponent when he consistently gets 4 natural 20s in a game. I think maybe the pseudorandom generator in here might not have been that great.

Also, did they not realize how insanely unbalanced it was to have one person decide, and then the other? The natural advantage goes to the person who has the lowest total: his oponent is going to stand or bust before him, and the decisions get much simpler once your oponent either stands or busts. Given that the player always draws first, the odds are naturally always weighted against him.

They should have done it like blackjack. Dumbasses.
