(<3 Starcraft)
How is it that I can beat the Sa-Matra with one Fury, but I can't beat a Marauder with an Avatar?

It occurs to me that we already have a very similar thread to this http://www.star-control.com/forum/index.php/topic,1888.45.html

that's for games that are comparable in quality. For instance, I loved me some Cannon Fodder, but it wasn't exactly SC material.
Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows

  In that case, let my introduce you all to Scorched Earth: The Mother of all Games.  It's one of those tank combat games where you set the angle and power of your shot.  The novel bit is that there is a huge variety of exotic munitions, many of which also affect the terrain.  Lots of two-player fun.

Oh lordy, I haven't played Scorch in ages. I used to love that game though. My friends and I could go round robin for hours with our little tanks firing huge nukes at each other. ;D

Scorched earth: Awesome

Star craft: Nothing better then some uber micro!  :P If only one day the beta would come out...

Half life: Simply one of the best FPS's of all time. Once again if only episode 3 would come out...

TF2: also another very fun game.

Batman Archam asylum: Highly recommend, only played pc version though.
And that's all I got to say about that.

The beta thing would be referring to starcraft 2 yes.

Any PSP owners should definitely give Monster Hunter a try. Been hooked to "Freedom Unite", the latest installation in the portable series, for a good time now.

osu!

It's a good thing I'm not trying to remake Star Control or anything.  Because otherwise this would really consume my free time.


It's okay, SC:R is safe because I had to stop after a couple of hours when I couldn't move my wrist anymore

No hes implying that the remake is safe because he couldn't play the other game any more.
And that's all I got to say about that.
