You actually die pretty quickly in War of the Roses. If someone hits you with a charged up swing and you don't block it, and don't have heavy armor or your visor down you'll die instantly. Chivalry's combat looks a little more intuitive. WOTR's combat is pretty tricky to get the hang of.
Started playing Anachronox today, a game that I've wanted to get my hands on since I played the demo back in like 2001 or 2002. It is ****ing awesome. So many small details that you would never see in a modern game, but that's not to say the game doesn't have it's share of jank.
Natural selection 2, just bought it found out my GPU can't run it other than...well hardly ever. So I'm gonna be buying a new card soon. Anyone else have it? I listened in on my buddies playing it. Sounds like a blast despite requiring some balancing.
