Ahh.

Anyway, yes, that's my thing. And trust me, it is annoying. I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to things like that, and when the game doesn't even let me save my preferred settings, making me redo them every time, it can be a time-consuming thing.
I don't know if it saves it in advanced settings but when I updated my Civ 5 game it now keeps my basic game settings from the last game started. So I can retry a couple of times conveniently.

It doesn't save advanced settings. It sucks. I like playing on big maps, but with a somewhat smaller number of players and city states.

Me too. I usually go one level down. If huge is ten people and twenty-four city-states I go eight and twenty-two as an example.

Pfft. That's old hat. I wrapped a chain 'nade around someone, suspended him and 3 others in a time warp in the air, detonated and took them all out.

And right at the end of the demo, where the four melee enemies run out of the last door? Chain Reaction x4. Mah roffelchayns go Slicesliceslicesclice!

Yeah...that's cool an all....except for the fact that I whipped someone towards me, kicked him back, attacked a rocket to his crotch, and sent him into three of his buddies.

:P Then I did it again, only to his ass. xD "Rear entry" indeed.

Just got King Arthur, because they were practically giving it away on Steam.

I also started a new character in Mass Effect ( Spacer / War Hero / Soldier ), on which I intend to romance Liara, as my "main" character in ME2 ditched Liara in favor of Tali ( that is to say I started a new character in ME1, played through it without going through any of the romance subplots, so that I wouldn't cause drama! ). I'm actually finding the game pretty enjoyable, and intend to take my time. I intend to play through ME3 using my "main" character ( Colonist / Sole Survivor / Soldier ) first, so no rush.

With DA2 just around the corner, though, I've been meaning to make a new character and play through DA:O. I've never even played through it on the PC, only xbox, and I intend to get DA2 for the PC. Gotta have something to import, y'know?

Edit: ... aaaaand as I'm making my character in DA:O, I recognize one of the voices as belonging to Mark Meer. Ahhhh.

Edit2: King Arthur is pretty neat. The strategic bits may be a bit watered down compared to Total War, but the gameplay isn't bad by any means, the RPG elements are interesting, and the story/setting is awesome.

Edit3: Well, my two complaints about King Arthur. Firstly, the story unfolds in a ... weird way. It just jumps ahead to a new chapter without really giving me any clue why ...

And the AI is a cheating fucktard. It's so aggravating.

Nah, I've never liked Street Fighter. Plus those games are not known for great features, story modes, or whatever else. Mortal Kombat's going to at least have X-ray-slow-mo-bone-shattering goodness. If the game was Marvel Vs. Marvel I'd hit it up most likely.

Plus that comes out what? Next week?

If you use the anti-material rifle you can do it from yards away! :) (Actually you can't he stays in a tent. :[) Still a rifle that shoots fifty cal rounds in three flavors never lets you down.

I'm mostly just waiting too. For DA2, Homefront, and possibly Pokemon.

In the meantime, I'm replaying Alan Wake for the third time.

It does when you use console commands to spawn both it and 9999 rounds of incendary ammo. :/

I can get off a few good shots, and play for about 30 minutes before the game crashes. xD
