Yea i am one of those ninjas when using the SKS + PKA-S (holo) scope. I'm constantly humiliating snipers and owning whole sections with that setup. Give it a try. I racked up over 1200 kills in 2 months with just that gun/scope... averaging 20 & 8 or so with that.

Are you talking about cheats? Auto-aimers and such?


I would figure we're beyond that, these days.

Gotcha.

Even back in the Quake days, the servers would check for hacks and kick you off if it detected anything.

Seems like a lot of people stopped playing. I don't think I'll be getting anymore addons for it. I'm waiting for Diablo III now. Hopefully, I can find some other guy's to play with.

Lots of cheats still available for just about any FPS.

YouTube has plenty of demos if you want to see them.

One of the big reasons that I don't play on public servers much anymore.

I almost bought MLB 2012 The Show last night, but decided I would rather keep the $60 dollars for now. I still may end up getting it, just not for that much money

Of much greater importance, I just found out yesterday that most of the core Maxis group still works within EA, and most important of all they are working on a new SimCity!!

The original (or maybe the second, I can't remember now) was probably my favorite computer game of all time, even ahead of the Civilization games (which are also great). Supposed to be released in 2013, I can't wait.

SC2K was my favorite, and the original on SNES comes in second for me. I could never get into SC3K or SC4

The story was shit. Soon as Earth is attacked they happen to find a super weapon that the Protheans left on a minor observation outpost on Mars. Lame. Then Hacket is still asking you to check out a possible problem on some random space station when the fucking universe is ending.

To top it off, not a single choice you made through the entire trilogy has any affect on the outcome. It comes down to three lame ass choices give to you by a A.I. god like character that is introduced 30 seconds before the end of the game. [/spoiler]
ME3 felt rushed. And short. Anticlimactic, considering the build up and how good ME2 was. Maybe that was part of the problem, having to follow ME1 and ME2.

Still easily one of the better, if not the best game series out there. Rivals Skyrim and bests Fallout, imo.

I was pretty disappointed at the end of ME3 too. Felt like all the fun I had in ME1/2/3 was invalidated by the ending. What the shit was that.

I have a first gen XBox that is still going strong (after multiple fixes). Thought I would post a couple of links to what worked for me. The first link I did a couple of times witch lasted a few months at a time. The heat gun method was a last ditch method before putting Microsoft's gaming system out of it's misery with a 45. For twenty bucks (home depot) the heat gun (re-flow) method worked great as a last ditch effort.

Help me diagnose/troubleshoot my xBox and/or Skyrim disk.


When we try to play Skyrim, the game gets stuck indefinitely on the "load" screen and wont move on to game play itself. The game has worked fine until yesterday, and does not seem scratched or dirty. I popped in another game, and it fully loaded and played that one.

Is there a known Skyrim glitch? What could be causing this?

Edit: sounds like I'm in the same boat as El Guero.

I new my current PC could not handle the requirements of the game but I had to try anyway. It was a no go for me. I have started looking at new PCs for my near future.

How was it? tell me about it!
