STALKER isn't too heavy. Just get a nice laptop with a recent i5 and an actual graphics chip and you should do well.

Moose, assuming the state of the game hasn't gone full 180 in the few months since I've played, what backward ass servers do you play on where sentries last longer than 5 seconds and scouts suck?


Uh...all of them?






Seriousky, I've had several games where sentries stopped the assaulting team absolutely cold, and I pretty much never see Scouts. The only one I recall seeing in this massive 45-minute 2Fort CTF match I played the other night quickly got blown to pieces with rockets and I never saw him again.

Well, I figured out why it took anything forever to download on Steam. My download speed was somehow set by default as 56k.

I had no idea you needed to change it. So I nabbed counter strike.

I've never honestly played this game ever, so it should be..something.

I haven't played it in a while so who knows if some meme overtook it

All I'll say is don't get confused, there are indeed other maps than de_dust2 even though it isn't gonna seem that way.

the only CS meme that ever took hold in force was Gungame, dear god.

Gungame sounded neat, though reverse gungame--the one where you get worse guns for each kill--sounded totally baller.



Although, from all the descriptions I've read, Counterstrike just sounds inherently awful and extremely irritating.

I wouldn't say it's either, it has...I go through huuuge spans where I forget its even installed but then I am kinda sick of it to some extent since I've been playing it since when it was in betas on hl1.

After a while it becomes painfully apparent people have memorized it to this insane degree and pretty much do the same things over and over again (also half the servers seem to only run that one map) so its kinda like...what the hell. So I'll play it for a week, get sick of only seeing office or dust and then go do...I don't know, anything else imaginable. Drink, come up with the idea for an app nobody would buy, slog through something productive rarely..stare at a t.v., anything because it's just like a damn math problem after a while.

I pretty much only play Dustbowl and 2Fort in TF2, yes. It's partly because I don't know which maps are the official ones and I hate when I enter a server and it starts downloading this big-ass custom map I'll never play again, so I stick with those two I know are "real."

Those seem to be the most common ones..I forget the names of the other ones, like where you're pushing a bomb or captuiring points.

Usually the custom maps have some odd name or abbreviation in the name

I did try Barnblitz--a payload map--the other night, and was kicking an alarming amount of ass on defense. Me (as a Heavy) with a Medic at my side almost completely shut out the opposing team. I actually ran out the clock, but then it went into overtime and I was out of ammo, and they managed to push through. But that was awesome.

Then I went in as Demoman, who I basically never play. I will play as him more often. I basically never get dominations and was actually getting several of them in that map as Demo. Many bitches were made with those stickybombs. That was awesome, too.

I did, I did. That was partly from it being one of my first online MP games (embarrassing myself in front of groups of gamers. Hurrah) and partly because it was so popular and nobody would SHUT UP about it. But then I learned it was like a direct "cousin" to Quake and everything was better. Pleased

(Yes, I am that shallow when it comes to Id-related products. I've played several games before merely due to John Carmack having coded part of the engine.)



I also admit that the random drop items got me more into the game, since it was comforting to know that no matter how bad you might suck in a match, you still have a chance of getting some items, which made it worthwhile. (And, funny enough, knowing I didn't have to play to win, just to get items, helped me relax and play better.)

Is there anything you CAN'T get from random drop?

What pisses me off is I'd like to play spy...but by this point everybody has memorized it

In TFC you could at least run in there, and kill something before dying.

Exactly. There's no point to playing with people who have memorized the optimum strategies from years of play.

Even when i was at my best in Jedi Academy, I made it a point to not memorize anything.

How do you not memorize something after years of playing it?

He has mastered the ancient technique of willful ignorance, handed down by accident through the ages as part of an Illuminati conspiracy to foster incompetence in colonial populations.
