When we had a power surge here at HQ, I suddenly felt the need to play a PC game. Games that came to mind are:1. Spring RTS.
A modern, free, open-source version of previous-millenium real time strategy game Total Annihilation, this game is pretty much just an online strategy game.
I find it really fun, though the graphics aren't quite that good. To be honest though, this suits me jsut fine, as my computer is [insert bad word here]
. A lot of thinking is involved here, and I do like it quite a lot. http://springrts.com/2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Yay! Mainstream game. It's quite nice and nubbly, like Kipling once wrote
. OK, the single player is @#$%!¤%&¤ with a capital @
, but the multiplayer is great fun. Especially when 33% of all your friends play it. That's pretty much what's good about it, cynically enough: killing your friends.
The lack of destructables pisses me off, and so do the ragdoll physics. And the crappy server solution. But apart from that, it's quite a great game. http://www.modernwarfare2.com/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_Warfare_23. Grim Fandango
Yeah, this game is from 1998. No, it's not boring. This is, in fact, the best story I've seen in any video game (yes, it's better than Read Dead: Redemption). The design of the environment is also pure genius
. Recommended for anyone who doesn't really prioritize graphics. Great game, but my little sister did the whole 3rd and 4th chapter without me (there are 4 chapters), and spoiled the ending. Bummer.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grim_Fandangohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kVZ1sJZ9lo4. FPS Alpha
This is the game I am least likely to play when I get home
. It's a first person shooter that I and some friends are making in the Unity3D game engine. I want to work on it but I never find time (Guitar has a higher priority)
. I expect it to be done by Christmas 2010. In the next post I'll make an offical release date. Note that the video is 3 months old or smth.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l9tQze-wzw
