Got Xcom and Guild Wars 2. Reinstalling Xcom, keeps crashing, probably due to a mod.

Guild Wars 2: Just been creating characters so far

Slyvari Ranger
Human Thief
Asura Engineer
Norn Fighter
You get a few more days to do the Wintersday stuff if you want the minis or tonics. Plus the snowball fight min-game is a blast.

Out of all the characters, they choose Vega. This looks terrible

Only in XCom can soldier miss a target 2 feet away. Who do they think they are, Imperial Stormtroopers?

There was a crazy battle in EVE Online (a single server game) on Sunday. One battle in lowsec space grew and grew over the span of much of the day, as more and more corporations committed to it, eventually pulling in all this:

Alliances involved: 262
Corporations involved: 715
Players involved: 3161

Writeup: http://themittani.com/news/breaking-...-asakai-lowsec

A video with a small snippet of it is here, crazy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLqb-...ature=youtu.be

What the editing nicely glosses over is just how slow the damned thing must have been, with that many ships in one area.

Wasteland 2 first look (turn on HD): http://vimeo.com/59292662

actual game play starts at about 2:40

glad I backed this one on KS, looks awesome so far. It will ship with WL1 so I might go through that again since its been so long I've played it

video notes:

Quote:
Our objective was to show off some of the HUD and how both the combat and skill systems work. There are many elements not represented here but to name a few:

Minimal particle effects
Minimal sound
Mini-map not working
Inventory, logbook and other character screens not shown
Not all skills (in and out of combat) being represented
No world map movement
It needs more messaging in the UI
And not a comprehensive list of all the combat variables

All of the game-play footage was captured directly from Unity. With the exception of the not implemented yet Mini Map and some placeholder sounds and portraits, this demo shows you what you can expect to see in Wasteland 2.

Sorry if we're over communicating, but it's just a reminder: we're just past the halfway mark, so don't expect to see everything that you can expect from the final game just quite yet.

Wasteland 2 (Vimeo removed the video due to its length - probably NSFW)

Uh, I don't deal with most other than newegg. Though if you like rolling the dice, I guess you could find what you want, and then do a price grabber or a fatwallet type of search and find the best price.

I do miss X-wing vs Tie Fighter.

I've owned 2 copies of Bioshock (PC and Xbox) for several years, but never played it. I used the Bioshock Infinite release as motivation to play through the first one finally, but I can't seem to get into it. I've only played for a couple hours, but it's just not that good. The controls are clunky and the game is totally on rails. Am I missing something, or is there something that happens later that will blow my mind? It's weird to finally play a game that I had heard such good things about and not like it.

I've always thought that it was overrated, never understood the love.

Has anyone played the new Bioshock that did not play the first? Interested in hearing whether it's easy to follow for a first timer without having played the first one.

Second this question. Last sequel I played without playing the first was Uncharted 2 which might be my favorite game of all time.
