    The Atomic era concludes and we were magnificent

    Ugh it kinda really sucks, the more I think about it. Atomic is special. It was my first non-boring computer magazine, it came out just as I was starting to build my own PC's and I loved it. I know that there's other mags still out there and going strong, but they lack a certain je ne sais pas that Atomic had. Couldn't exactly explain why but Atomic felt different. I still have a poster on my wall that came in I think an anniversary issue, that had the Atomic logo made out of everyone's forum avatars. As for the forums, Atomic was the first online forum I ever joined. I was never prolific, but I was always lurking. I have fond memories of joining [AC-DC] when Battlefield 3 first came out. I remember that guy (whose name, forgive me, I can't remember) that used to post a lot in the gaming sections about how amazing PS3's were, and how Heavenly Sword was the best game ever. He used to get a lot of shit (Though it was generally good natured), but then he died in a car crash and everyone was really sad. Or the time in 2005 when I started WoW and posted here asking for advice and got heaps of help and pointers. And, obviously, the green slushie.

    Want to play WildStar this weekend?

    So this has been out for a couple weeks now, any opinions? I'll admit this had slipped under my radar, but from what I've heard it's meant to be quite decent. Tempted to jump in, but not sure I've got the time anymore to do an MMO.

    I've been interested in GW2 for a while but haven't played it yet, how would it be for someone who doesn't have a massive amount of free time anymore (Got a wee kid to run around after)? Don't have the time to play WoW anymore, and I got bored with TOR fairly quick (Was more of the same old same old). But I do like MMO's. I really want to find one that I can play bits of here and there but not feel compelled to HAVE to put in loads of hours. I like the social aspect of MMO's, just not the massive time-sink side. Or what about Secret World, is that casual-friendly? On topic, I've bought a few keys from cdkeys and not had a problem. My Tomb Raider key on steam got cancelled on me, but I emailed cdkeys and after sending a copy of my steam support ticket they promptly sent me a new working key.

    Skyrim :: Dragonborn

    True about it being too easy to be God. I abandoned my first run of Skyrim after speccing in all the overpowered talent trees and making double-enchanted alchemy-enhanced armour sets and weapons and such. Decided to start again limiting myself to a max of 1 "OP" talent tree (I went stealth and ignored crafting/enchanting/archery). More fun that way in the end, if one can get over the initial nagging annoyance of not being (anywhere near) as powerful as one could be.

    What would you like to see a remake or sequel of?

    Homeworld remake would be awesome. That game was fantastic.

    Bethesda's Next Epic

    I love the setting and art style, would like to see more gameplay though. Fairly hopeful it'll turn out good though :) As for the GFWL thing, Games for Windows and Games for Windows Live are 2 different things. GFWL is bad, Games for Windows is just a marketing label pretty much. http://au.pc.gamespy.com/articles/122/1223378p1.html Quoted from the above link: "There's a lot of confusion as to what the words "Games for Windows Live" actually mean, and why they inspire such dread in so many PC gamers when uttered in connection with an anticipated game. Part of that is thanks to some truly awful branding by Microsoft. Not to be confused with its benign brother, plain-old Games for Windows label (which isn't actually software), or the now-defunct Games for Windows Marketplace, GFWL is the Windows side of the Xbox Live network, except without any of the features that make Xbox Live interesting or useful."

    PSA: HUGE DSE Gaming Sale incoming

    Rang a couple DSE's and they've said there is a sale, but stock is very limited and the chances of the public getting anything are pretty much non-existent. Basically, all the DSE employees are gonna be getting it all. Still gonna go down and check tomorrow though.

    Steam Specials Thread

    TW: Shogun 2 is $22.50 (75% off) for about the next 2 days. Never really played any TW games, but I hear good things. Looking forward to checking this out at some point, after finishing a whole bunch of other games I've yet to get through.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. dev GSC closed down :(

    Yeah it's pretty bad :( Hopefully Stalker 2 will get picked up by someone. CDProjekt and GSC were pretty chummy, maybe CDP should expand to a 2nd studio and start on Stalker 2? :P

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. dev GSC closed down :(

    Looks like GSC have closed down :( Makes me very sad. I absolutely loved the shit out of the first Stalker, despite it being fairly buggy (Tried the 3rd one too, but kept crashing on me). Stalker had that same odd charm that The Witcher games have, that you just don't find in western AAA titles. Sauce - http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/12/09...stalker-2-dead/
