Heh, I hadn't fired up battle.net for so long, I didn't even know they remastered SC.
Had to buy it immediately... One of my all time favorite games. :tu:

btw: A tip for you. Build tons of units, large forces are the key to the campaigns. TONS!
You also have to get fairly good at creating and controlling groups...
I have played it in the past (many years ago!) but at that time I was busy preferring Warcraft II and III. Anyway, I think there are some similarities with Warcraft as I can group (like Ctrl + number), then just call this number when ordering this group.
What I discovered is there is a very active online community for it (and Starcraft II). They still play PvP and it is really popular.

I think Blizzard will release a remastered version of Diablo II as well. This also on my "Must to finish" games from the past! :hihi:

But, I don't know why I find myself melting into those old games (if the graphics is bearable) while the new games (Destiny II for example) makes me feel bored in spite of the action and nice graphics/effects ..etc.

Shovel Knight - Treasure Trove

Good fun game, even though it kind of felt short so far (I’m on the last level for the Shovel knight campaign). I like how it doesn’t hold your hand and is really challenging, although i felt it could have been better if it had a scoring system and life system. Apart from that everything was just incredible, and I grew up with 8-bit systems and loved them.

The 8-bit NES style soundtrack is incredible, and combined with the retro graphics it really makes you feel like this could be running on a 8-bit system.

Not sure how much difference is in the 2 addons but I guess the levels are different? Not really sure I still have to beat the Shovel of hope.

Highly recommended if you are into NES style games.

If you like 8-bit soundtracks, you can get the soundtrack for free here if you want. It’s a no minimum limit fee on bandcamp, but you should donate a few bucks it’s good.

Developers please focus only on 64bit development. Let 32-bit finally die and become a thing of the past.

All thoughts of replaying Spec Ops went out the window when it turned out to be incompatible with the OS I'm using :( So, until I get my Windows partition repaired/reinstalled, I'm running through Mafia II...again :tu:

Half life is one of my favourite games. Hope you stick with it and enjoy the ride.
It's almost got everything I want in a game. Action, puzzles, aliens, and the best thing is you can carry all the weapons you pick up. No piddly two gun limit here.

Oh, and we don't go to Ravenholm for a reason. :scared:

The only game I'm playing now is League of Legends :-o I'm playing it daily for about one hour (for months now!) and mostly against AI because it's more relaxing and less toxic than PvP.

On the other hand, i have enough time to spend on music making and no new games to buy :D
