You can pay respect by pressing the X-button.

Also, the bitch took Fifty's skull.

Civ 3-5 are amazing. Xcom is OK (might be too simple to be "real" strategy game). FTL is good (again is it strategy game is some what debatable).

Don't know how easy these are to get into, but definitely worth to check out: Silent Storm and Jagged Alliance 2.

Well, at least "gamers" are not represented as rapists or other kind of monsters (apart from Adam Sandler and Kevin James), so it is not all bad.

@baillie: i run out of tranq ammo, i had him sneak up on me and shoot in the back. I just need to get better. He also regained all his stamina by doing some crazy chant

I never really shot at him other than when I was right behind him in a hold-up position. To find out where he was, I would go prone and have my camo index at it's max, take out my Directional Mic and start spinning 360 degrees to see if I could hear him - if I couldn't I'd know he's not in this area and move onto another, and repeat.

After finding his direction, I would then go into the map viewer, and see what sniping point is related to that position, and then find a way to get to the back of it. Doing this slowly, using crawling or slow walking behind large objects like big boulders/cliffs. The end will hear you and face your direction if you're anywhere near him, if you're not using the D-Pad to walk.

Get behind him, hold him up - make him shake 3 times to get his moss camo - using this to get 100% camo index on the ground most of the time. If he runs, you can shout him in the back, but don't fire too many times, just the once. Try to face away from the Stun Grenade he throws as the blinding effect won't last as long. Then use your Thermal Goggles to follow his footprints to his next location, remembering to use your D-Mic every so often to see if he's close by - as he'll start talking more and saying 'This is THE END', etc.

Rinse and repeat. Or you can just find out where he is and blap him a few times with the SVD and all that if you don't want to be too sneaky sneaky.

Made this back in the day for non-substance version.

Because I am broken record, I am going to say it once again: Problem is that video games as a whole are badly written, therefore if you pick one narrow segment, it is badly represented by default (like women, poor people, anti walking battle tank spy soldiers). This "women in games" problem wont get fixed until the writing in general gets better in the video games.

Major problem is that ads come from huge ad server networks that really don't care for anything else but their revenue. Sites could have their own ad systems that could be less intrusive (like honoring "no moving images or sound" rule) which might be OK for majority of users. Good example of this is the bombcast ads that are done really well. Problem is that this might require for a large effort to be placed in the ad sales department.

As it is now ads are annoying, security and privacy risks and I can't feel bad about blocking any of them. Also, I remember the time when most sites had no ads, because people were doing these things for fun or other reasons.
