    you do have a lot of cross genres such as Natural Selection for example.

    I was also going to suggest Planetside.

    PS2 is sitting on my hard drive and needs at least a year's worth of updates before I even get into the game. And considering 90% of my memories consist of travel time and only one reasonably sized battle, I don't think I will.

    NS2 then?

    (PS2 is something you need to have a clan and TS for it to be fun apparently)

    To start out-yes! If you can get a fairly veteran player to help you start you'll find it a lot more fun. Now that I've put in ~300 hours, I know how to have fun without buddies (and even more with them)

    Summer; the TP is out now if you'd like to mess with it. It's fairly neat and they got rid of that awful fulscreen start menu bullcrap. Its like windows 7 and 8.1 had a baby.

    Can I make it look like Windows 7? Because I HATE the Metro-flat-colour-2D-look-how-optimised-for-touchscreen-we-are look.

    And to make this post look less negative:

    Pretty Cities Skylines without the ugly film grain!

    this is true during the first month after it's release. this is why I ask about the release date. i don't want to miss the offer. i didn't miss it for win 8. don't plan to start bad habbits.

    yay free ****!!

    that's what that program you see up there in my screencap called winblinds is there for.

    but really there are free alternatives.

    though ANY alteration of the UI in windows is a billion times more cost-heavy than in linux. keep that in mind.

    I don't think the benefits outweigh the advantages.

    The TP is pretty awesome if you can't wait- But don't be afraid of updates. (Unless you don't join the windows insider program. Then I guess you won't get updates)

    feel like i got something going here.
    failed at installing aero glass manually (I had hopes this would remove the ads) but overall looks pretty groovy.

    I don't think natively. I hate the look as well, but it performs well and has native USB 3.0 support and it's new.

    More importantly: how the **** food you get that dam to work! Mine flood for a bit produce for a bit then the water in the back leaves and the water in the front comes back and BAM! 200k of money wasted. (Twice. I tried somewhere else and it didn't help)

    I'm wondering why chivalry and Pirates, Vikings and Knights II wasn't broght up in answer to @Geers request. they sound like the perfect answer.

    there's also Guns of Icarus which I'm quite fond of.

    Keeping an eye on that one. Waiting for the bugs and stuff to be patched.

    I have Chivalry, but the only thing I ever played was that one server with a Star Wars mod.
