  • gamefreak9 posted a message in the forum topic Any recommendations of a good PC strategy game for a noob?. on the PC board

    Civ is kind of slow you need adjusting to. I'd recommend RTS games for a noob. Top of my head: Age of Empires 2, Age of Mythology, C&C: Generals is fun. If you are into RPG's the best RTS by far i...

    @tothenines: No you are right, I have never seen anybody take 100 punches to the head. You know why? Because in the real world, where people don't know how to punch and are in weaker shape than these ...

    I've gotta say i'm disappointed. If boxing insists on not giving the aggressor points then its destined to always have passive dickheads like FM. This statistics nonsense(% of punches landed) needs t...

    While some of the marvel movies have legitimate character development and an interesting plot, most notably the new X-men. I can't really say the avengers had any real plot or room to develop characte...

    @jimbo: Are you saying boxers aren't tough? Fencing is very much a skill sport and is pretty much mostly dexterity so it is domain dependent.99% of aggressive situations is just two dudes getting angr...

    Well I want Pacquiao to win, though he is going up against the undefeated dude... the odds are stacked against him. I keep hearing that Mayweather was only doing easyfights, which could be true but s...

    There's lots of hobbies that have a bunch of levels of engagement, I personally always found the "hardcore" label very useful. Everyone I've ever met who plays games seems to either passively play a f...

    Christ... has any game except Final Fantasy released an MMO and then reverted back to non MMO? I assume the MMO money is too addicting, even if it isn't as robust to time. It would suck if Skyrim nev...
