Re: 20th Anniversary of Vogons

Happy Birthday! VOGONS is one of the best communities I'm taking part in. Thanks to the whole team and all members for (mostly) keeping the flamewars out and running a civilized forum that's fun to write in.

Re: What game are you playing now?

I've modded my Xbox360 and started playing through the "Gears of War" series and oh boy, do I have a lot of fun. The first title was a bit klunky and the Unreal engine wasn't that well optimized for the 360 back then, but it was still fun. The second one looks nice, they solved the framerate issues …

Re: Reasons to hate modern games

- Too much focus on graphics and almost no focus on a good storyline or no "edutainment" at all. This. A lot of games are just bland - they're shiny but without any substance. Modern RPGs are a perfect example of that, a lot of them give you big open worlds that are either totally empty or filled …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

I got an EVGA Nforce 790i motherboard with a Core2Quad and Noctua fans for 50 bucks. Can't wait to test this out with my two GTX 570 and eventually do triple SLI when I find a matching third one. I have a P5E3 WS that can do dual SLI with hacked drivers, but there are no hacked drivers for Windows …

Re: The moment you were hooked

The year is 2002. A German magazine called "Computer Bild Spiele" put a game on their cover disc which was called "Shadow Man" by Acclaim. This got me hooked so hard - great graphics (for the time), an intriguing story, challenging gameplay. It had it all! I spent weeks on this game until I finally …

Re: Memorable game mods

"Mistake of Pythagoras" for HL2 was quite memorable to me: https://www.moddb.com/mods/mistake-of-pythagoras There are levels with impressive architecture and the whole mod is just so different from anything I've ever played. You get attacked by massive triangles. That's all I'm saying.

Re: Members of Vogons, what shows do you currently watch?

Finished up the Hannibal series with a friend. I can certainly see now why it was cancelled after three seasons. The third season is way too slow to be entertaining. There's 35 minutes of psycho-talk and 10 minutes of action in every episode. I don't know how anyone can sit through this and actually …

Re: Members of Vogons, what shows do you currently watch?

After so many years, Barry has resumed with its third season and it's still excellent. I also started to watch Shining Girls and I'm hooked. It's a typical psycho/thriller/detective story with some nice SciFi twists included. Freshens up the genre quite a bit and I'm interested to see where this is …
