I remember people saying it was simple. Maybe they were talking about the second one.

It's no Dragon Age or whatevs but you can PLAY THOR AND WOLVERINE!!!! AAAAH. Sorry. Geekgasm.
It's a good game, sequel was by different developers, though.

GOG are having an Interplay action-comedy sale. 30% off MDK 1 and 2 and Citizen Kabuto. If you haven't played them, then buy them and thank me.



There's a 20 minute free trail streaming thing of Secret of Monkey Island here.

And Smiley's Shooter Adventure is having a pay £whatever you want sale.



Oh and Deus Ex just got nice visual upgrade, thanks to modders.

EDIT: GOOD GOD I WANT ONE OF THESE.

Haha, I could not be more the target audience. Seems they have the license for other Valve games too - Gordon Freeman with crowbar please.

Ah god, I'm pretty sure I'd buy all those. Stupid Valve and their talent for design. I want a G-Man that randomly appears somewhere in my house in the corner of my eye.

If you haven't played Giants: CK, give it a try people. Really nicely balanced fun game.

Also, just saw Iron Man 2. YES. Make sure you stay 'til after the credits.

Mechwarrior 4 (with some improvements) has been released for free to download legally:

Quote:
Mechwarrior 4 is now available as a free download for PC gamers along with numerous improvements and an automated patching and content delivery system.

"Studio MekTek, in association with Smith and Tinker, INC., Virtual World Entertainment, LLC, Catalyst Game Labs, and Microsoft Games, is happy to announce the release of Mechwarrior4 Free," reads the game's website.

The Mechwarrior IP is owned by Smith and Tinker, which gave community site MekTek.net permission to release the game for free last year. Microsoft, the original publisher, gave the all-clear last week and the rest is history.

The free package includes:
111 different mechs ranging from 20 to 100 tons.
9 Battle Armor
6 Infantry
32 Beam Weapons
43 Ballistic Weapons
44 Missile Weapons
7 Electronic Components
3 different types of armor

Improvements made to the original game include:
Clan and IS Mech Pack mechs available in campaign
Mektek mechs and weapons added to campaigns
Zonematch has been replaced with MekMatch in all visible text and is the one and only mech-matching service
5 new MekMatch servers to host and play on! You can change servers whenever you like. Each server has a dedicated community to cater to
League Server
New Players
Australia
Europe
North America
"Connect" and "Host" default to the last server chosen
For those that will be hosting games:
New features for dedicated servers like the ability to add a fixed number of bots to a dedicated server upon launch chosen in setup! Bot Levels can also be set. Default game length has been changed to 30 minutes instead of original 10.

Other Improvements:
Game loads much quicker and no longer requires a CD
Original mechs, Clan and IS Mech Pack, and Mektek mechs arranged alphabetically in Mechlab list (no longer have special symbols in front of the mech name except for Battle Armors and Infantry).
New Screenshot Folder for in-game screenshots (instead of the main Mercs installation folder where it was difficult to locate them).

Improvements on-screen:
LTRI (Long Tom Range Indicator) added when a weapon with trajectory is installed on a mech! Torso pitch angle in degrees is also shown! Even height of mech has been calculated and accounted for in range.
Mission and Computer Clock added as part of the UI. Mission Clock is a semi-transparent pie chart indicating how much time is left on a multiplayer map!
Additional Chat state. Besides the in-game chat box's normal and large size you have the option of completely turning off chat (disappears). Pressing the "y" or "u" key (general chat and team chat) causes the chat box to reappear!


Get it here.

It might sound like a silly question but, outside of ME, is there a good sci-fi RPG out there?

Besides Fallout, that i never got really into?

ADD: Also, i'm still sickly addicted to Torchlight. AGH.

Other than Altruism, anyone else planning on playing the Halo Reach beta? (or has anyone been able to play it already?) Go ahead and send me a friend request if so.
