    Is there any Q2 mod that gives the enemies player-like armour, unnerfed damage and better reflexes?
    The game could actually become borderline decent then.

    It is a "Let's take a bunch of techs that has been at least prototyped IRL (to put it in perspective: the most out there techs in game are railguns and NERVAs, basically 5' into the future stuff) for which mathematical models and equations can be found, let's dump those models into game data along with tons of physical properties for various RL materials AND numerical n-body orbital physics (NOT KSP's simplified patched conics - it does Lagrange points and perturbation), then let players build spaceships and components (you can make your your own rocket engines, guns, reactors, etc.) out of that and have them duke it out in space."

    I would consider it an incline. :obviously:

    Oh, the ships are streamlined because of armour sloping being good - you can easily build just a can, but it will be easily perforated compared to elongated cone. Also, the "lasers" are just tracers for slugthrowers (chemical, rail and coil based) - actual lasers are just bright glow on the turret (visible due to diffraction) and bright spot plus shooting out ejecta on the target - subtract bright spot/glow if using IR or UV laser.

    Was recently without internet for a week at home, so I played through vanilla Fallout 3 that I bought on gog for $2. Looking now at the screenshots I have to say it's quite a... pretty game?

    Turns out it wasn't perfect after all. The version of Homeworld that's floating around on abandonware sites (or at least the version that I downloaded) is broken and doesn't display the opening cutscene, and more critically, doesn't allow you to save the game. If you try, you get this message: "Unable to open file 'C:\Gateway2\HOME001.SAV'"
    The problem is the ini file in the game folder, which points to the wrong directory unless you happen to run the exe from C:\Gateway2\ within DOSBox. To fix it, just point the ini to the correct directory. Or you could set up DOSBox so that the directory in the ini is correct, of course. Either one would work.

    Nobody asked, and there might be easier ways to fix this that I don't know about, or the solution might be obvious to everybody but me, but I'll post this just in case; to date, the only instructions I've found on how to run the Gateway games in SVGA mode comes from an LP on this very site (thanks Sceptic and spekkio :D), so who knows, this might end up helping some random Googler in need.

    My Priest is about to learn Dark Magic at Grandmaster Level, and the teacher is Archibald.
    So the party heads for their favourite mustache twirling villain Archibald's Throne Room, and what do you think happens when they enter?

    Gamebryo games always look surprisingly good in screenshots because it's more difficult to see the muddy textures and there aren't poorly animated enemies bouncing around the landscape breaking all sense of reality.

    Don't know, but the writing is atrociously bad.

    You get bald if you're exposed to too much radiation.

    I downloaded it about a month ago, you change your character's appearance by pressing the "style" button on the screen.

    I made the mistake of NOT playing it in story mode, but it was still a passable stealth/walking sim hybrid. That said, I think most people would enjoy it more just wandering around, taking in the world and enjoying the story, rather than waiting around for monsters to shuffle past so you can progress. It's a more thoughtful take on consciousness and morality than the usual Hollywood or pulp sci-fi approach to such themes, but nothing remarkable, and I didn't have a particularly powerful emotional reaction to anything. Well, apart from "wow what a shitty ending".
