So I just finished a campaign battle in Ultimate General: Civil War and I was going through my roster of available Union officers to replace a major who was KIA. I noticed one of the officers had a first name of Juan. Juan?? Somehow I don't think the Union Army had any officers with a first name of Juan.
When I first got rF2 I raced some 60s era F1 cars around old Spa and was in awe at the level of detail around the course. Back in the day this course was like LeMans was a few decades ago where you actually raced through small towns on the normal roads without any barriers if you go off. The level of detail became more evident when I lost my car in a corner and ended up going off of the road into some trees near a house probably 50 yards off of the course. As I was sitting there I noticed a head stone so I took a screen shot of it and later did some research to see if it was real...and it was! I don't have the screenie anymore, but it was someone who had died during a race many years ago...maybe some kid who was struck by a car or something...I forget now. Had I not gone off the road there I would have never seen it and if nobody ever crashed in that spot they would never see it either, so that amount of detail was unexpected.
It really is great sometimes when you come across a nice little gem in the game that you're playing.
Last night while playing Ghost Recon Wildlands,
I was standing at a small outpost I and noticed a large shadow covering the ground in front of me, it was moving away from me and at once reminded me of the scene in the movie Independence Day when the alien ship blocks out the sun as it comes into Earths atmosphere. there was a large mountain behind me in the far distance and the sun was setting behind it causing said shadow.
Not funny I know but something that stood out from the norm and I hadn't seen that in a game before.

Anyone here knows SHOGO ? its a very old game, you get some mechas and play as soldier as well.......i didnt know english at the time, i was only 10.so here i am in this base and all i understand is that i need to get my mecha......it looks like a police station, there is a woman and a girl talking to a cop like in the stall......when i move past the guard warn me, so i can understand i cant go there or must give him something to pass.....after a few minutes i have no clue what to do....so i just clubed a guard outside and took his pistol, the cop attacks me and instead hit the woman......the npc dies, and the girl started crying.......CRYING !!! i never felt so bad for an AI in a game since that failed leap of faith in tomb raider 2, obviously i could not stand seeing that child without her mother crying by herself so....i shot her too and grabed my mecha
The flight sim "B-17" by Microprose that came out in the 1990's.
If you scroll along the map of Europe while at the navigator station in the B-17 you will notice the German city of "Karl Marx Stadt". Of course this renaming of the city of "Chemnitz" did not occur until 1953.

While I would agree that the game is designed with co-op in mind, I think Borderlands 2 is a great single player game. I've taken three characters to Ultimate Vault Hunter mode in SP and had a lot of fun. The characters are designed in such a way that a diverse group synergizes particularly well. But it's still great solo, in my opinion.
I realize as well, having read probably 75% of your posts over the years , that co-op-ability is one of the things you look for in a game. So I understand where you're coming from.
I forgot to mention Mr Torque as another great character from this game.

LOL RawKryptonite. I miss playing Rainbow 6 1-3.
BTW, did SimHQ change the way we can upload images? I'm noticing that I can't do it the way I used to which was pretty easy.(You used to could upload straight from your PC but now I see no other option but linking a URL or attaching documents)
Here's a couple I found recently. Nothing spectacular but still kind of fun when you find them. First shots are from Murdered: Soul Suspect. The second one is from FEAR which apparently shows some unique mail laying on the table. Not the magazine but the letterhead of the mail.
I'm playing Dishonored (the first one). I started it when it first came out and got side-tracked. For a long time. Anyway, I just played a mission where I had to go to the Boyle estate and go to a party to secretly try to identify my target for assassination. Long story short, as I was walking my the table with the food and drinks, I could have sworn one of the party guests farted and then pardoned himself. Can anyone confirm this? I mean, I know it wasn't me.
