I've survived the Rasoning Cascade and all I got was this lousy HEV-suit.

Yep, I got myself Half-Life, in my terms, that is a pretty old game (I was born in 1993).

I played the Trial Version of Starlancer just now. Died first time, failed second time, completed the whole thing third time. :D

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

[nitpick]Its Resonance cascade not Rasoning![/nitpick]

Half Life Source is out, but I heard it sucks, and that you're better off waiting for the Black Mesa Project to finish.

HLS doesn't suck, it's just HL1 on the Source Engine, no graphical improvements. SO unless HL1 sucks in your mind, HLS doesn't.

well, it wouldn't suck per se.. my guess it'd be like running Vanilla Descent: Freespace in either the Current SCP engine or the EVE engine, so much wasted potential there, given the generation of graphics capability that's out right now, and available on the source engine.

do not torment the sleep deprived artist, he may be vicious when cornered,
in case of emergency, administer caffeine to the artist,
he will become docile after that,
and less likely to stab you in the eye with a mechanical pencil

Yeah, Half-Life: Source is like FS2_Open without the MediaVP's.

I'm going waaay back. Commander Keen ftw.

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.

I used to play that too. Goodbye, Galaxy! was a blast. :D

You do know that Dopefish can still kill you in God Mode, right?

Just finished re-playing System Shock 2 on Impossible. Only now I notice how much of the endings potential is wasted by just those 2 pitifully easy bosses and the Rickenbacker section which could be improved. That game could really use a large SCP modding community. All it has now is a texture and model update some FMs and a Secmod.

I played Blackhawk Striker 2 yesterday. My hands were tingling after I completed all four missions.

I have that amount of games,probably more and many are older! They're just not all installed at once as I have low harddrive space I'm still collecting new ones all the time. (Well, new to me. Car boot sales are your friend! :yes: )

 You would be well adviced to question the wisdom of older forumites, we all have our preferences and perversions

I have that amount, or more, but they aren't all in one folder like that. Kind of chaotic, really.

:EDIT:

Didn't notice that that picture scrolled. 124 games.

I still have more. ;)

I have a suspicion he is using XP, but using a program called Windows Blinds.
