What's your username? Neliz and I used to play together, and I've been hitting BC2 hard, lately.

I never see anyone online. I got a game going with homer, recently, but other than that, no one from B3D is ever online. I was playing all day yesterday!

I played from yesterday 23:00 till 0:00

I mostly play from around 22:00 to 0:00 every day of the week now.
I just got up to Level 34 as I started a new character that got up to 15, but I got lazy.
Mostly playing a 24/7 Atacama server with anti-baserape measures.

I used to love Atacama, but it, and Nelson Bay, are the sole reasons I disabled bloom. Bloom lighting on those two maps makes visibility nearly impossible, combined with the dust storms in Atacama and the reflection of the snow in Nelson.

Oasis, Panama Canal and Valparaiso are my new favorites.

Anyway, we need to get a game going again. Are you on Steam?

I am on Steam, user: neliz (whodathunkit?!) but have BC2 on Origin :/

I love Panama as well, maybe even better for C4 than Atacama, though Atacama is more a high speed map where the open space invites people to drive fast&blind

Invitation sent!

I have a boxed copy of BC2, so I have it imported as a "non-Steam game," anyway. We can still join through the BC2 friends list. I just wanted an excuse to grab your Steam moniker

It's the guy with the huge AMD FX Unlocked logo as a profile pic I'm in the B3D group as well.

"Bastion" & "The Baconing". Quite fun isometric button masher adventures with really nice artwork and humour. They both feed the loot & upgrade appetite.

Space Pirates and Zombies... which is probably the most fun I've had in a while. Seriously impressive for a 2-man outfit. Recommend it.

Is there a B3D Teamspeak server or something like it?

Since it's gone now, do you think it was a space-time anomaly?

Picked up Chronicles of Riddick on steam over the weekend. Haven't played it before, but I'm starting with Dark Athena then Butcher's Bay. I don't know why, just am.

I only have the original but wikipedia tells me Dark Athena takes place after Escape from Butcher Bay, FWIW.

Butcher's Bay is good. Can't speak for the sequel.

Great game! I loved it!
Played original Escape and then replayed remastered version from new game! I would suggest playing Escape first because even though this is mindless FPP it has some story telling which ties nicely with both Riddick movies and that animated story.
Vin Diesels voice acting adds to climate of this game

Loved Escape from Butcher Bay

One things that really stood out in the game for me: it was the first first-person shooter I played where I could actually see my character's body, and where my character cast shadows. That added a whole new level of depth for me that is too often missing from first-person games.

I haven't played that many first person games lately (the most recent one is Portal 2, which does not do this). Has being able to view your character's body become more common?

Crysis does it. Not much else though.

Was playing some BC2 with Dresden and bigtabs.
