Re: Do you use headphones?

Most time, yes. At work as well, of course.

I've played neither but I saw a reference when playing Outpost today. One of the consumer goods you can produce are Laura Bow 2 hint books. Are these games worth giving a go if you've never heard of them before?
Absolutely, the games are gorgeous, filled with content and really difficult.

Re: 2021 Goals / Resolutions / Whatever You Want To Call Them.

I'm worried about things biting back but let's say that the guy who took over the company last year and is in the process of moving everything to India is not working to improve the business, I think he's just trying to pry more money from investors by showing how much overhead he cut. Legally we ma...

Re: 2021 Goals / Resolutions / Whatever You Want To Call Them.

I'm at a rough spot now considering my job (and that of pretty much all my co-workers) will be outsourced to India, but just like five minutes ago a spider walked on my keyboard - and I let it walk on my hand and took it to safety. I have a favourite spider now - the Poecilotheria Metallica - I know...

Re: Colonel's Bequest - the GM vs MT Sounds (Converted to MP3 for the video)

Hey Tawm, not sure if you noticed there are huge gaps between the tracks here and there? Around the 23m mark for instance there's a 5-min gap.

Re: First Person Shooters (Split from New Acquisitions Thread)

Let's stop this argument right here, OK? It's completely pointless. At any rate I'm too motion-sick too quickly to play anything 3D with moving camera, and not remotely interested in first-person shooters beyond the hilarious CD-i cult FMV ones. In GK3 camera movement can be avoided, in Sleeping Dra...

Re: First Person Shooters (Split from New Acquisitions Thread)

No your eyes have to move in order for you to be able to look at them. You don't perceive it as moving because they are relatively still, but your eye muscles are working all the same. Plus due to me being cross-eyed I have seen my own disobedient eye move in the mirror. But that's beside the point....

Re: First Person Shooters (Split from New Acquisitions Thread)

DPX: Sure you can see your own eyes move! Just tilt your head in front of the mirror. It's like motion sickness, except the other way round. When I'm in a car, bus, or boat (especially boat), but fortunately not usually trains, I can get ill very easily, particularly if there are a lot of bends in t...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Not for me, I do really need a stationary camera.In GK3 I've figured out where to click and how to use the pre-set camera positions so I have to move the camera as little as possible.

People tell me Portal 2 is so good but I lasted like 5 minutes.

Re: Ye Ol' Games Of Yesteryear.

Teehee... I got in the mood of seeing these games again, and looked up some Pinball Dreams II vids. When we first got a soundcard it was a bit of a disappointment - most games we had didn't work with it and the few we had that did (Jill of the Jungle and Xargon) usually fared worse because of it - b...
