I'm in the beta this weekend. It's very impressive considering the disaster that 1.0 was. I've been keeping tabs on it for a while now and the direction seems good. It isn't really groundbreaking though - it's pretty standard fair as far as MMOs go albeit with a very nice coat of paint on...
I've had an HTC 8X since late November that I've really enjoyed using. It isn't a perfect phone by any means (non expandable memory, some quirks with the WP8 interface, smaller app ecosystem) but I really like the UI design language and for me personally it has plenty of apps that I needed. I...
With code: GFDMAY20 it's actually just $16 for both games. I'm interested in XCOM - but I already have Civ 5, is there anyone that would be interested in splitting it? With purchase it gives two separate Steam activation codes.
I really wanted to try this... I downloaded it and everything. But seriously... what modern game like this doesn't have an option to invert the mouse/camera. It's unplayable for me. I can't stop looking at the ground or the sky. It's not even in the works as far as I can tell from responses...
I just put this together a couple weeks ago, my first desktop build in almost 9 years :-D.

From what I've read for Cities XL - you can make really nice looking cities, but the simulation is pretty weak. There isn't as much of a game there. It has its flaws, and it takes a bit of work downloading mods, but Sim City 4 is really an incredibly robust engine to create some amazing...
Also for whatever else it's worth, if you like reading, these are my sources, including their respective forums:
I didn't read through everything else in the thread so I don't know if anyone mentioned some of this stuff. I'm also looking to build a new desktop (first one in 8 or 9 years now) so I've been doing a lot of research as well. What's I've found is when you're trying to pinch pennies, you have...
Kenshin is solid. When I first started watching anime it was one of my favorites. A classic shounen series. They're making a live action (movie I think) of it hat actually looks promising from the trailer so far.
For whatever it's worth I think I recommended Dennou Coil to Tek :-D
My top 5 are:
Dennou Coil (kids/sci-fi realism/drama)
Aria (3 series) (slice of life)
Scrapped Princess (drama/adventure)
Honey & Clover (romcom/slice of life)
Haibane Renmei (drama)
Rounding out the top 10 or so...
