Morning Discussion

I've got the dishes done, the laundry mostly done, the bills taken care of, cleared off the junk table. Now I can finally kick back, relax, and enjoy what's left of the weeke... oh :(

  • I am getting the itch again. World in Conflict: Soviet Assault was an awesome excuse to replay the whole thing again. I love the story, and some of the missions are super challenging and awesome. Plus, the really big fucking guns you get to wield are awesome.

    There are a lot of games out that I would like to try, so I need your help picking. I haven't played DOTA (wasn't a fan of WC3), I don't even think I know what that stands for. I get that it is a "Hero" style RTS, and people are saying it draws from Diablo 2 and WC3.... anyway, I am interested in Demigod, and I wonder if I would like it since my only experience with that style of game was with the DOW2 demo (if that is indeed the kind of game we are talking about). I wasn't a huge fan of DOW2 from what I played, so I don't know what to think about that kind of game.

    I was also looking at steam and I saw BattleForge. I'm not a card game kind of guy, so I don't know if this would appeal either. EndWar looks cool too, but it also looks like a WiC clone, and the reviews aren't that great. Is it fun? Do people play online? I had a good time with the Sacred 2 demo a few months ago and then forgot about it... maybe I'll pick that up.

    Any suggestions, shack? What's been released within the last year or two that I missed that is an awesome game?

    Any genre is fine, what are some under appreciated titles?

  • Shacker who use the Nike+ thingy:

    Do you use it mainly to look at your own stuff, or do you also like seeing how much other people are running, as well as being able to show other how much you run? The reason I'm asking is because I'm thinking about putting that sort of "social" stuff into my own exercise-tracking app for the iphone. Look at some guy's workout, notify the internets of exactly how jacked and tanned you are the very second you leave the gym, yadda yadda yadda. I myself don't really see the appeal of sharing this type of information with other people, unless it's a coach/coachee type of situation. But then I turn on the news and they're talking about how I should tweet them, so wtf do I know :(
