    Ravenloft.   My favorite videogame city next to Liberty.

    Liberty city, huh? I didn't know that you are a fan of the Gta series.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Last one I played was San Andreas... I enjoyed it up to that point and that was about it.  But up to that point - I really liked it.
    The game got kinda stale to me and I've not bothered the newer ones.

    I liked San Andreas a lot. It was fun and more lighthearted. GTA IV, not so much, I hated it. I hear V is really good.

    I should hope not. Mobs of rogue woodworking tools would suck to repel.

    Gta V is really good. I love the online elements of it. The story was also very good.

    Wait, was Vice City before or after San Andreas.  I really liked Vice City as well.  3, VC, SA... those were my favorites.

    Vice city came afterwards. I liked the radio stations on Vice city better. GTA 5 is like a merger between the two titles in a way. You have the CA ghetto and Hollywood high life(Vice city sans Florida) and all of the hooker killing you want in GTA 5. The more that think about it, the more I want put that disk in when I get home. I heard there was a recent online update.

    In order of coming out: Gta 3, Gta vc, Gta sa, Gta IV, Gta V.

    I became a fan when vice city first came out. I was 12 and in the 7th grade I believe. I'm surprised I didn't become a criminal, Fox news says kids who play those games become murderous little hellions  :neener.

    But yeah, simpler times..... I still remember coming home after class and grabbing a Pepsi and a can of Vienna sausages as an after school snack before I would commence to hooker killing in vice city. In those days Toonami was still on cartoon network in the afternoon.

    That mini cannon is cool.  I don't need one though, I need to find/take some video of my uncle's home built steam locomotives.  That is what I need a lathe for.

    Quote
    X-Wing and its follow-up, TIE Fighter, are two of the best Star Wars games ever made. In a just dimension, the space sims would've spawned numerous worthy follow-ups. Alas, our dimension is not particularly just, but it did get a little better today with news that both games are coming to GOG.
    The happy revelation comes to us by way of the GOG forums, where a pair of threads revealed that the Special Editions of both games will come to the service on October 28. It's not an official announcement, but the messages were posted by the official GOG account, and that's good enough for me. Each game will sell for $10.

    I just wish they were getting a graphics upgrade, too...

     A reboot of the franchise, with new graphics would go over very well... adding in the new spacecraft from the expanded SW Universe.

    Well,  they do include the 1998 editions.  The graphics on that version are quite a bit better.   I've got that version of TIE Fighter and the older collectors version of X-wing without the graphics upgrade.   Haven't dusted them off in years since I didn't want to hassle with getting them running through DosBox.  Glad they are finally being re-released.

    Yeah,  I got the group name awhile ago, search for WETHEARMED in the organizations to join.   I dabbled in Arena Commander a bit, but I'm waiting for more of the bugs to be ironed out before I really jump in.
