Screw poetry — I want to shoot something

And now to the third and final game I got for Christmas — Deus Ex: Human Revolution. So far, I don’t think the facial/figure modeling is really up to the current standard, but the gameplay is supposed to be awesome. So here I go.

Beats the hell out of limping around a deserted Hebridian island pissing and moaning about my dead wife.

I didn’t mean to make another lame computer game post this week, but I was out for most of this evening. Taking notes at a Church council meeting.

I swear to god, the first one of you laughs, gets a slug in the face.

Hey, Stoaty, it’s a dirty, rotten, job, but someone has to do it!

Hmmmmm how about your non white immigrants?!
I could fall in love with that – and I know that Scube would as well!

However, you are the one saying that you wish to shoot something? No?
Have you ever wondered the purpose of those video games? Training a whole new Generation Kill.

Actually, I just installed WORLD OF TANKS on both of my laptops, so I can try it between calls here at work. I’ll let you know if it’s worthwhile…

Flashy, I’m a raving GUN NUT, not a raving mass murderer.

There IS a difference.

I don’t think we can make a proper assessment until we see the notes.

Scube, Have you heard of Red orchestra 2? It’s a tank sim wrapped in a FPS. It’s the next one on my list. Although, You can’t beat WOT with a stick especially since it’s free.

Sweas, Is Deus Ex any good?

Mono – can’t say that I have. I’ll have to check it out after I learn my way around WOT

Sister Sweas,
I will spend this eve and all day tomorrow helping facilitate our annual parish Vestry retreat in the foothills south-west of Denver. The Anglican church in all its variants, is one tradition bound, liturgically rich…very wordy (not worldly!) critter. Robert’s Rules of Order governs it all! I love it.

mojo – banana slugs!!!! *shudder*…..I was introduced to them the first time I went to visit my wife, prior to the whole marriage thing, she lived in Salem, Oregon. Those suckers are the stuff of nightmares!

Now, as for games…I am an Evony junkie. I enjoy the interaction with real folks. Not a great player or tactition, and I don’t spend money like some.

Isn’t it about time to change your name to EastAsia?

Mono –

Red Orchestra is an odd name for a tank game or FPS. The Red Orchestra was a group of spies.

It is alleged that Red Orchestra had someone in OKW who forwarded all the secret German military communications during the Battle of Kursk to the Russians.

Nah, its COE, they’ll take anyone as long as they attend. Its more a cultural society than a religion these days.

Oldcat, Yeah it is a wierd name considering the game itself But I’m not complaining. I do wish there were more games based around SMERSH though. that whole era was fascinating and it’d be really cool to see that recreated through modern technology.

Aye, DE:HR is a good game. The only complaint I have is that you can’t do a complete stealth run. You can play the game by sneaking around and putting tranq. darts into people, but every so often, you have to break your routine by killing a boss in order to progress.

The computer hacking in this game is probably the best hacking mechanism I’ve seen in a game, apart from maybe Uplink. And I’m not sure what people’s beef with teh grafix is. To me, it looks The Shit.

That misplaced oceania sockroach is truly unsportsmanlike, I shall like to remark.

Our Weasel host is trying to become a meek subject of House of Hanover (or is it Harkonnen, Britishers??) and there it scurries, the greasy arthropod, talking about shooting the protected class of disenfranchised visitors.
No telling how many cctv cams are trained on the Weasel’s hollow log now.

Your Exulted Monarchic Majesties, this here be a tame and harmless Weasel, utterly ready to toss her colonial rebel American past behind like some bygone misunderstanding.

Allow thine Garter to be kissed and a bulging codpiece full of silver denarii to be deposited at the foot.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
