Newbie (1/14)



  1. Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!
  2. In less than an 15 minutes, I'll be 18 years old. I want to stay young forever.
  3. I've been considering making my own girls only gaming clan. This girls only clan would have a partner clan for males. We wouldn't require a name change for any of your in-game names, and you'd be allowed to be in other clans. It would be more like a community than a clan. The clan would be multi-platform, meaning it plays games on all of the consoles and for PC. This is a message to all you girls here. If I made a girls only clan, would you be interested in joining it? If so, please send me a private message here and if I decide to make one, I'll invite you into the clan. Oh, and GIRLS ONLY, atleast until I get a male division created.
  4. Charge is great, since it's lightweight, and I could just put it on a flash drive and play it anywhere. Thanks for the links.

    Today is September 11, 2010, and Patriot Day. Nine years ago on this day 19 al-Qaeda terrorists launched a terrorist attack against the United States of America, in particular, civilians. They crashed 2 airplanes into the World Trade Center in New York City, 1 airplane into the Pentagon, and attempted (but failed) to crash a fourth plane into the White House. On that day 2977 people (excluding the terrorists) were killed and over 6000 people were injured. So let's dedicate this thread to the men, women, and children who died on 9/11. As well as the firefighters, police officers, FBI agents, and medical personnel who rushed into half-destroyed burning buildings to save people they didn't even know. I'd also like to dedicated this thread to the soldiers, marines, airmen, seamen, and mercenaries (PMCs) who have lost their lives serving our country (and our allies, like NATO and stuff). Also to the civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq who's lives and homes have been lost in this war. We must continue fighting though, to prevent another attack like this, and to ensure that Iraq and Afghanistan remain liberated and free (thanks to us). Not to mention the American (and other) civilians who were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Here is a video of the attack on the World Trade Center:
  6. For me I'd say that the greatest RTS out of the box would be Total Annihilation (1997) with both of it's expansion packs. The game has literally hundreds of units that are unique to each faction, there are dozens of multiplayer maps, the campaigns are enjoyable, and it has a stellar soundtrack. Unfortunately Total Annihilation lacks in customization. There are lots of user made maps, mods, and custom units, but there is no built-in map editor like in most other RTS games, and there are no custom games like in StarCraft or other RTS games, there is only melee in Total Annihilation (destroy your enemies base and kill his/her commander). Another shortcoming of Total Annihilation is that when you head online, unlike StarCraft: Brood War, it can be relatively hard to find people to play with. You can however find a few people on PhoeniX WorX, WarZone, and GameSpy Arcade however. However, for a game that has been perfected, I'd say the original StarCraft (1998), with Brood War. StarCraft has a great storyline, unique units for each faction, a built in map editor, an average soundtrack, and the greatest online service of all time, the original (not 2.0) Battle.net. One thing that separates StarCraft: Brood War from the hundreds of other RTS games out there is not only Battle.net, but the ability to play custom games on Battle.net. The original map editor was pretty weak, but the community created several custom map editors (I recommend X-tra Editor in special mode for units and triggers, and StarForge for terrain) to create maps with. Custom maps range from defense maps to RPGs to bounds to movie maps to zombie survival maps, and everything in between. StarCraft also has millions of players from all around the world and is still the most popular RTS game of all time, despite being over 10 years old.

    Vote Wesker!

    GameSpot is doing a poll for who the greatest video game villain of all time is. The vote is down to Albert Wesker from the Resident Evil series and Ganondorf from Zelda. Obviously Wesker, being the badass he is, could pwn Ganondorf any day, there's simply no contest. So please, show your support for a real video game villain, Wesker, and leave Ganondorf in the dust! For those of you who don't know who either Wesker or Ganondorf are, I have put videos of both of them below. Vote Wesker today: http://www.gamespot.com/greatest-video-game-villain/vote/battle-hub/index.html?battle_id=49 Albert Wesker Ganondorf
  8. Good morning everyone, and happy Labor Day! Today we celebrate labor and our jobs, by not working at all, lol. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labor_Day
  9. We already control the world culturally, politically, and militarily. So why not control it territorially as well?
  10. The United States took over a lot of the Caribbean and Central American countries at the turn of the 20th century. We should have kept those. Also, when we conquered Mexico back int he 19th century we should have annexed it, instead of what we did do (install a friendly government). We also should have annexed all of South America and Central America, along with the Caribbean. It would be no different from now except the United States would be even bigger and better than it currently is. America is the best country ever without a doubt and the only super power left in the world. We would also help all of the suffering third-world countries in Central and South America (including Mexico). We could have used Manifest Destiny and eminent domain as justifications to completely take over the entire New World, with the possible exception of Canada since it was a British colony at the time and that may have sparked a third British-American War. Also, perhaps not Greenland since that could spark a war with Denmark. Of course, we would eventually annex Canada and Greenland too, but for them we may wait a while. I mean it would be no different from now. We would keep the regional names and languages of the territories we captured, but merely make them states. For instance Brazil would still be Brazil, and people there could still speak Portuguese as a regional language (but with English taught in schools as the primary language). We would also respect and honor the local cultures and ethnic groups of the land. Who else agrees that America should control the entire New World and that we should be one huge democratic country? Now, I'm not talking about a "New World Order" or any conspiracy theories, I'm talking about a good government, like the one currently have. One that is democratic and uses the Constitution. Perhaps in time we could even annex Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, and Antarctica. Also, I'm not necessarily saying that we should right now conquer the entire New World, but that is of course an option. I am merely implying that history should have been different. But also, in real life, I hope America does do this some day. And I hope we eventually control the entire Earth, and possibly even beyond the earth.
  11. Yeah, a Dune FPS game would be amazing.

    Okay, thanks.

    Now that Westwood Online got shutdown, is there an alternative to use to play it online?
  14. I just installed Dune 2000 on my computer. I am running it in Windows 98 compatibility mode, since it crashed when I tried it without any compatibility options. But the game is really messed up now. Like half the screen is on one side of my monitor and the other half is on the other side. I even tried it in 640x480 compatibility mode, only to get the same result. The full motion videos play normally though, it's only in-game and at the menu screens, such as the main menu, mission briefings, etc. I have no clue what is going on or how to fix this. I am considering perhaps temporarily changing my resolution and trying to launch it in different resolutions, but I'm not sure if that would even do any good, please help. I have taken a screenshot of the main menu with it being all messed up, to show you the problem I'm experiencing: edit I just read this post: http://forum.dune2k.com/index.php?topic=13778.0 I put it on Windows 2000 compatibility mode and it worked.
