lol I mean, in real life A.I. ran around and made layups shot jumpers in everyones face and in this silly game he makes dunks every single time I turbo and near the opponents hoop and in real life he mostly shot layups and jump shots not dunks every single time I turbo. I think i'm going to have to hack NBA 2K7 for realism some more later and make him faster and alter the dunks so he doesn't dunk as much and makes more layups.
I can only hope that this winds up making a bundle of cash and providing a good business case for remastering quality old games.Microsoft today announced Age of Empires II HD Edition, a reimagining of the 1999 real-time strategy game. With Ensemble Studios closed, work on the updated version is being done by Hidden Path Entertainment (Defense Grid series, Counter Strike: Global Offensive).
Age of Empires II HD Edition will launch on April 9 exclusively through Steam across the world. Gamers won't need to wait that long to play, however, as those who prepurchase (at a 10 percent discount) will be able to jump in April 5.

I'm going to pay attention to the Humble Bundle a little more closely. I had an e-mail today stating they're going monthly, IIRC. I'd post it, but I've deleted the message since the game didn't immediately grab me.
I've really been into Darksiders, and this was one off the holiday Humble Bundle, so even if I don't like anything else, I'm not disappointed. Love this game, and I'm really glad I got DS2 for $15 on sale awhile back. If Darksiders 3 does come out, I'll be eagerly awaiting it. Maybe I'll have caught up on my backlog.
I need to get back into Resistance 3 too.
Too many games, too wild of a work schedule, yeah.
Ugh, i hate free weekends sometimes. Tried to play a couple rounds of CS:GO with my friends this afternoon. Both games had multiple blatant hackers on the opposite team running brand new steam accounts. I guess people just create a new steam account and play the free game with hacks to grief and generally be complete a-holes. Worse still, the other team knew that the guys were hacking and refused to votekick them, saying "well we've been losing games against hackers, so I want to take the win". Thankfully it ends soon
