    Starcraft II is the best I can think of, at least on the PC.
    It's, of course, completely different gameplay from Halo.
    I can't really think of any good FPSs like that, sadly.

    Interesting.
    Is this a real indev map, or just an emulation? Anyway, a good little nostalgia trip, and I bet a lot of noobs won't know what indev even was :P

    Yeah, aiming in a shooter really is a pain in the ass on a controller compared to a mouse. With a mouse, you can use your entire hand to move it, which means that you can be more precise and faster. With controllers, you're just using your thumb, which can make it hard for long distance shots.


    I know, right? It's a pain in the ass to aim in FPSs using control sticks, and a lot of times you'll need three thumbs to move, shoot, and do anything else at the same time. It's especially bad at close range (where you have to carefully nudge your crosshair the right way, possibly being killed while doing so), and long range (It's hard to snipe when your aim can't be accurate to within more than an on-screen centimeter).

    We Americans use "zee" because it fits with the rest of the alphabet. Most consonant pronounciations only have one consonant phoneme. There may be clusters of consonant sounds, but they are pronounced as one.

    Bee
    See
    Dee
    eF
    Jee
    ayCH [one-consonant phoneme, spelled with two letters]
    Jay
    Kay
    eL
    eM
    eN
    Pee [immature bastards, ruining words like that]
    KYoo [two consonants, one phoneme]
    aR
    eS
    Tee
    Vee
    ["Doubleyoo" is an exception, because it literally looks like a "double-u". In some cases.]
    eKS [two consonants, one phoneme]
    Wie
    Zee [fits pattern]/ZeD [doesn't]

    It's hard to choose. I don't prefer either one overall, but in terms of good songs, I'd give it to the "Stairway to Heaven" guys.

    What are the conditions one must have the stairs in for this to work?

    I got it for Christmas last year.

    It's nothing special. I guess I'm just not a fan of generic JRPGs.

    posted a message on Strange foods (or how strange ways you make foods) You like?
    In the junky department: pickle slices dipped in cheese sauce. Burgers with mushrooms, grilled onions, pickles, and pepper-jack cheese.
    Snacks: Lingonberries and crackers. I have to get the lingonberry jam at Ikea whenever my family goes to Detroit, because they cost ungodly amounts at the local store.
    Healthy foods: Chicken without any added salt grilled without oil, but spiced up so hot you can forget it's supposed to be healthy.

    I was curious about location, because there were/are apparently two. The "eastern" one... I don't remember.
    The "western" one is at my school :P

    PC forever. I've grown up with gaming PCs all my life. It's the total norm for me.
    And the only console I have is a Wii, which I almost never play.
