So... I was in Space Battles seeing Doctor Who respect threads when i found this line:
Imagine, if you will, a vortex. A really powerful vortex that drags into itself
anything that comes into its trajectory. A vortex made up of an infinite
number of well, levels for want of a better description. And if they seem to
diminish as they get towards the bottom of the vortex, rest assured, it’s an
illusion. For this vortex has no bottom. It is, being constructed of chronon
energy, and thus temporal in nature, endless. Eternal. Bottomless, topless,
middleless. It is neither linear not multifaceted in existence. It is completely
unique and is, theoretically, situated at the centre of creation. Of course, in a
multiverse that expands exponentially and is unfixed and infinite in nature,
a ‘centre’ is a theoretical and practical impossibility For millennia, scholars
have tried to fathom the true nature of what they have come to refer to as
'The Spiral'. They have failed because, of course, they cannot tell whether
each time they examine the Spiral they are seeing it exponentially or
It is theorised that creatures live within the confines of the Spiral,
creatures that have access to multiple dimensions and realities. Although
these theories cannot be disproved, nor can they be proven, as no acceptable
method of determination can be found. No one can ever be sure, if these
creatures do indeed exist, whether due to their crossing of the timelines they
are actually temporal duplicates of just one original creature or whether they
really are legion.
Could warrant huge Doctor Who upgrades... Or could warrant nothing... : (
Lol, I'll have to try and get back into PC gaming, I started a Long War mod and never got round to finishing it. An average mission for me takes 30-45 minutes depending on how incompetent my soldiers aiming is, lel.
Before I played XCOM 1 (on consoles because my graphics card ia a piece of wood with wires), I never realized that 99% accuracy was so uncertain.
But yeah, if you ever see Halo 1 & 2 on eBay at a low price, go for it! The modding scene for those games is great, and there are active servers for multiplayer, I think. Adjusting the field of view does wonders as well. Half-Life 1 & 2 are dirt cheap (especially when on sale), too, and have hundreds of hours worth of good mods out there. If you get any of those games, let me know and I can help you with any mods you may be interested in!
As for Half-Life: Duuude, there's so many good Half-Life mods out there. Check out the Hall of Fame section on this site sometime, to say nothing of the good stuff on ModDB. Makes one nonplussed by the lack of a sequel from Valve.
4 different commentators = Metroid Prime 4 confirmed
Data is turned into information, information is power, power makes items work, working gives money, you can buy games with money, Half Life is a game, Half Life has a sequel, the sequel takes place in 3 parts, Half Life 3 confirmed OVO
Oh, but I'd be glad to introduce anyone to the series, should they be interested. The games have level design akin to the Metroid Prime series in how you are to explore and feel as if you're in a place that could be real. Good use of verticality in level design, too; an underutilized design philosophy both series deliver excellently.
Guess that didn't interest anyone. Hey, Colonel, I'm making good progress in the Marathon Trilogy, so I should be getting some new abilities for the 9-A equivalent of GER. Not as haxxed, but still pretty good.
Yes, I haven't gotten to the Tier 2 stuff yet, but I noticed Marathon guy is strong enough to gib enemies even underwater or under magma with his punches. It's hard to throw a normal punch underwater, let alone one that strong. His true Low 2-C key is also incoporeal and has quantum manipulation and such, but I think I'll do some more fact-checking before I get ahead of myself.
It's too bad I must agree that the source material is a bit too vague to make his Low 2-C keys ideal for VS matchups, but I'm hoping a more fleshed out page will draw attention to the Marathon series. Especially since Bungie went through all that trouble making an engine that improved all the games, made them compatible with Windows, enhanced mod support, and then put it all up for free.
I should try to make a profile for the main A.I. character, Durandal. He was one of the first major A.I. characters in video games (SHODAN from System Shock predates Marathon's release by a few weeks) and he has a unique personality, oscillating between poetic and aspiring to transcend 3-D space, to bombastic and not the least bit bothered by the carnage of the war he orchestrates between the ancient Pfhor and S'pht alien races. On the topic of his impressive flagship known for its orbital strikes:
"When my ship still answered to the Pfhor, they called it Sfiera after their goddess of lightning and passion. When you helped us take control on Tau Ceti, the S'pht rechristened it Narhl'Lar, 'Freedom and Vengeance.'
So, I noticed that people here is talking about basic elements of my major, so going to make a try: Is the best case, human resistivity is about 1M Ohm, so the power disipated by the human is 0.769221^2*1M = 591.7 KW, in 5 seconds it disipate 2.9585 GJ; however, I should make notices that 591.7 KW isn't that much power, a human electrocuted by a tazer disipate at least 2.5 KW in the best of conditions with a homemade tazer.
That information is overwhelming compared to what you give is above, ~0.77 A is over six times the current needed to paralyze an human, causing respiratory problems and severe muscle reactions according to this document; if the guy is killed seconds later isn't impressive at all, not that different than a common human.
