    Amen to that brother. That RTS has yet to come that can rival the glory of Starcraft.

    I really do hope that Blizzard has refrained from incorporating too much of the WC3/WoW bullshit in Starcraft 2.

    Yeah, StarCraft is thee #1 RTS.

    The only question now is whether SC2 will beat it in excellence or not.

    Fuck, are we going to decide on an avatar and title or are we going to discuss RTS games?

    I've really gotten into Red Alert 3 recently, but online play is nigh on impossible to set up. I only ever get games with an IRL friend, because either nobody joins our games, or they disconnect from us halfway through.

    ..... mkay.

    So we've stuck with the sultry whore, and the Latin for such is sultry meretricis.

    Or perhaps parum scriptor of Ianus: the little writer of Arcanum

    This is a rather crappy remake of a game, but I really liked Dune. :D

    My Latin is fail, so forgive my confusion. Is Ianus meant to be equal to Arcanum? If so, shouldn't we just call it parum scriptor of Arcanum? I'm fairly certain the Arcanum in question was outside the imagining of people in Ancient Rome, and so Ianus probably refers to some other usage of the word.

    I'm going back to this idea. Did any of you play Dune? it was basically C&C 2 (I believe) with a different color scheme.

    Yes, I have played Dune, but that game was a bit too easy. And back to the topic: What about making 'Resident Attention Whore' or 'Evil mistress of the House' in Latin?

    I'm with DF. I haven't seen anything yet that I really think suits Xiao.

    What is it with everyone and Latin? We've already done that with rroyo.

    Somehow, you being with Vorak doesn't sound gay when it comes from you...

    Either that, or it sounds super gay.

    Why in Latin? Latin has already been used. Choose another dead.

    I'm tired of this thread.

    I want it to die.

    So I did something about it.

    I don't agree with your solution.
