Trash Talk / Re: How is everyone?
« on: September 16, 2020, 12:44:39 PM »
Woah! Can't believe I remember my password. Randomly thought about the site today decided to chip in:

Where are you in life?
When I was active here, I was really thinking of perusing a career in Computer Science. I 180'd hard late in Highschool and decided to peruse wildlife conservation.  Strangely though, it all came full circle. Turns out every career needs some computer skills, and now I use R to do lots of statistics and data science. I was able to learn it pretty fast because of all my time figuring out code here, and it really helped my career in the long run.

Has anything exciting happened to you?
About to finish my Master's in Wildlife! Writing my thesis now on a population model looking at endangered turtles.
What are your hopes and wishes?
If I can land a job as a wildlife biologist, I'd be so happy. It's a very competitive field, but my computer skills distingish me from the pack, wish me luck!
Make any accomplishments?
Recently, I conducted the most through search for a species of endangered turtle in my state, and I'm working on publishing my results
What are you going to do next?
Survive the pandemic hopefully

Hope everyone is doing well! This board was so formative for me in middleschool/highschool.

EqwanoX is eternal. Everytime decided to pay this site a visit after years and years he's still here posting game updates  :o

I also never knew gangwars was based off an old game. Man, I can't imagine liking a game so much that I decided to fix all the bugs and colorize it. Damn.

NEO Scavenger:
Bluebottlegames.com

-Turn Based Survival Sim. Very realistic and gritty.

Papers, Please.
dukope.com

-Soviet Border sim, make sure everyone's paper's are in order (it plays a lot more thrilling I swear)

K. But no one should EVER be forced to buy a modern system by online people who really have no control over him.  :P

That was the point of the list being Mac OS only  ;)

I had tons more games I'd recommend over what I said, but they aren't on mac. (just an example: I have 35 games on steam. 6 of which are OS X compatible.)

Probably not gonna happen. My dad is going thermonuclear war on anyone who plays games in the household. Cause games take up time and are inconvenient for him.

2 things wrong with this post:

1. You play league of legends all the time

2. You're like a Sophomore at college and you're dad still won't let you play video games... HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Trash Talk / Gan's Required "To-Play" list
« on: August 23, 2012, 09:08:57 PM »
Gan wants to go into the game industry, but so far his experience with games is "Flash games and League of Legends"

This list's goals is to give Gan wide exposure to video games as a whole. I have picked, what I believe to be the best in their respective genres (on the Mac OS)


Also important to mention again these are all Mac OS. (Wesnoth is iOS)



First Person Shooter:

Halo: Combat Evolved - what popularized the modern FPS, very good, and the demo is free!

Left 4 Dead - Best Co-Op Shooter around, would recommend if kurt or moe has it.


RPG:

Fallout 1 - A great example of a classic turn based RPG. Mac OS version is hard to track down and expensive, however, so torrenting will almost be required.

Knights of the Old Republic - A good example of a Turn/Action RPG, and STAR WARS!

RTS:
Star Wars: Empire at War - Good example of Space and Land RTS

Turn Based Strategy
Civilization 5 - Good example of Strategy on a large Scale

Battle for Wesnoth - Best turn based iOS game, plays a lot like Fire Emblem.
