BEAST wrote:The games I've played lately were Robin Hood: Legend of Sherwood, and Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive ... I can already imagine a mod for Desperados, or standalone game influenced by Desperados, which have Caleb, Ophelia, Gabriel/Gabriella, and Ishmael as characters. Imagine a Desperados-Blood game where Caleb joins the Cabal, and engages in tactical missions for Tchernobog against the locals, the law, bandits, rival cults, and the undead. Either that, or it could just be a tactical version of Blood's original story with the Chosen at your side.

Just bumping this to point out that THQ Nordic has recently released an update for Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive that offers a bunch of new language modes, the lost demo level, as well as Linux and Mac support for the first time.

It is also currently 80% off on sale from both GOG.com and Steam so pick your poison:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2607 ... _or_Alive/

Fastest purchase in the west. :guns:

I have finally gotten around to giving Return to Na Pali a try and so far I am enjoying it quite a bit more than the main campaign.

Just the way the levels are paced and the enemy encounters managed makes the whole thing feel a lot less tedious to me. :shrug:

Finished off Return to Na Pali today. :shooting:

Is showing the gun in the menu after winning the campaign a bug or is it a feature?

So I have now got BioShock running after grabbing the DRM free release off of the Humble Store in June. Playing a game I actually remember being advertised on television is surreal. :bat:

This inspired me to go back to the beginning of this thread again just to see what comments there were about the game at the time of its release. Seeing Drakan's struggles with that one puzzle in Half-Life really hit home to me how much gaming has changed since the arrival of YouTube video walkthroughs. There were also a quite few other people throwing shade on the original Unreal at various points I am sorry to say. Please don't let us negative nellies get you down dosgamer000. :wink:

Bioshock is one of the best games I've ever played.

So yeah, I am calling bullcrap on this:

Image Image Image Image

As it so happens I have just spent the past week working honey bee hives while there was a considerable amount of smoke in the air blown in from the now annual wildfires in British Columbia. While smoke can be used to calm bees, just blasting it into the air like this is probably not going to do much; if anything the bees were more tetchy this week than they were before the smoke blew in. It certainly does not cause angry swarms of them to scatter and disperse like is shown here.

A knocked over hive is also not going to gush honey like that, but that is a more pedantic point. :drinkblood:
