Remember the good old 3D games that didn't require 128MB cards

Anyone remember a game called Battlezone? How about Recoil?

I only got to play the demo of Recoil but it was rather fun. Battlezone rocked!

Yes, I'm being nostalgic. Battlezone and Recoil are games so "old" they could be played on my 400MHz CPU and 16MB video card, yet their graphics really weren't bad at all. The gameplay was addictive and fun. I replayed the Recoil demo several times, even coming back half a year or more later to reinstall and replay it. I story of Battlezone on both sides is really nice and the gameplay is quite addictive. The game even let you break parameters to a certain extent if you really wanted to. (Grab the light craft with good thrusters and jump over things you wouldn't normally be able to, or push your collector to a spot they didn't expect and set up base. You could even do a quick run on the enemies forward base early in the game and set up base there instead.)

heheh. Good times.

PS: Broccoli is good.

The absolute value of marriage

I just read on a guy's site his "beliefs". He had one up on gay marriage so I thought I'd take a look. Not a pretty sight to see. It basically said (several times over using the same reasoning) "If gay marriage is allowed my straight marriage won't mean anything because the absolute value of marriage will have changed. If the absolute value of marriage can change then there is no value in marriage." He's not even married yet, and won't be till September. Insecure much?

Reminds me of a kid. "Mine! Mine! Mine! You can't have!"

PS: The song is kind of fitting. heh

PPS: I thought I had a "amused" icon. huh
