 Forum: Games and Video Games   Topic: a huge nostalgic feeling from games you grew up with

I grew up on DOS games. I had a shareware CD with a hundred or so of them. I still have the urge to load DOSBOX and play some of them. There's a great feeling when someone I meet knows the more obscure ones. A couple years ago someone was describing a DOS game and I realized it was Bio Menace. I end...

Yeah, one hour is too short. People over the 'Net have been posting cities with >= 100k people but I could barely fill half the map in one hour, & that was with me rushing against the clock. It's definitely a simpler game than SimCity 4. It's not complex, but it's fun. I was reminded of SimCity ...

A lot in SC5 looks to be done automatically. Too much, perchance. Sometimes I am excited and other times worried. When I watch the gameplay videos I notice there's no zone density also. Reading the tooltips in the videos leads me to believe that the density of the zone will be based on the road it's...

Some thoughts: 1. My parents got two bare-bones systems from Tiger Direct. They were basically parts bundles that were discounted off the price of buying them à la carte . They still had to build the computer from them. Nonetheless, those types of bundles are good places to start if you don't know a...

The few times I have played multiplayer I knew the person from real life. Seeing that I work full time, I am also looking for games that don't have extremely steep learning curves, and from what people have told me about MMO games like World of Warcraft, it takes until you get to level 90 (or whatev...

Unvoicedmercy: that's got to have cost you quite a bit! Nonetheless looks like a nice build. What sort of case are all these parts in? Windtreeman: You sure you need 750W with those specs? From what you're saying about your build it looks like you'd do okay with 500 watts. Or are you planning to do ...

I will second the rec for "Liars' Poker". One caveat: Liars' Poker concerns Lewis' life as a fixed income (i.e. bonds) trader as opposed to an equity (i.e. stocks) trader. Before the 1980s, it was commonly thought that bonds were a safe investment and stocks a risky one. The Treasury interest rate s...

I remember a lot of people trying to "deliberately" change their personalities after high school but before college. I went to a private out-of-state university, so that may also have been part of it. Nonetheless, freshman orientation seemed merely a big drama, everyone trying to out-impress one ano...

You would save yourself nearly 500 bucks by using an AMD chipset. Intel systems do indeed run 'faster' by about 15% compared to AMD ...but AMD is usually half the price. Considering the fact that systems become obsolete at around 6 years (meaning cpu & ram type) there's no reason to pay so much...

I would assume to do testing/QA you would need at least a college degree. Some basic knowledge of the software development cycle, testing paradigms, and some high-level programming/computer engineering concepts at least. ...Unless you're getting told what the tests are from "up high", that is, and y...

I am trying to put away $100/paycheck into savings, and I believe roughly $75/paycheck is transferred into a 401(k). The 401(k) is automatic, so that always happens. It's the savings part that's tough. I am in NYC now and despite that fact that I spend almost nothing on myself, the cost of living is...

AMD Phenom II X4 960T. 4GB DDR3 1366 MHz RAM Sapphire AMD Radeon 6870 ~150 GB 5400 RPM (laptop) HDD -- think it's a Seagate but not certain. I pried it out of my first (long broken) laptop because it had Windows on it already. 1 TB Western Digital Caviar Green HDD -- this used to be a WD elements ex...

Not in person. Facebook does, but I don't particularly care one way or the other if it does, since generally the people who wish me happy birthday are the people who would know when my birthday is in real life. I actually spent the night of my 21st birthday doing real analysis homework. I don't thin...

Last.fm says I've listened to the song "Get Away" by Yuck about 90 times in the past 3 months. Most of this is because I'll play the song once... and then I'll want to hear it 20 more times.
