    Thanks a lot for the amazing revelation, doofus.

    I think Gearbox should just shut up and make Half-Life: Opposing Force 2.

    It's an "Expansion Pack" first of all, and second, it would be awesome. Opposing Force had a better style of action than the Half-Life games, with a "bigger is better" mentality, and it had better squad dynamics than Half-Life 2.

    I'd rather a couple more mods for Deus Ex come out instead

    Oh, me too man, me too. Did you ever play "Burden of 80 Proof"? That was a hilarious, well made mod. It's a bit complicated in some areas but overall it's an easy going adventure game with great gamer-humor.

    I downloaded Burden of 80 Proof, but it wouldn't start up.

    I'm now playing through Deus Ex again, since I stupidly saved over my complete game when I played some mod.

    That's odd. For me, that was the easiest mod for me to ever get running. :(

    I'm trying to read that, but all I can see is "World War 2 shooter # 423753982." :(

    I'd kill for a Deus Ex mod running on Source. That would rock so hard. :up:

    YOU'RE RIGHT.......THERE IS NO COMPARISON. THE GAMEPLAY WAS A LITTLE TOO TEDIOUS FOR ME IN THE FIRST 'B.I.A.' GAME, BUT I'M STILL WILLING TO ADMIT IT WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE BEST WWII GAME FRANCHISE TO DATE. 'MOH' HAS SUCKED ASS SINCE 'FRONTLINE', AND 'COD' IS JUST A GREAT WWII FPS. 'B.I.A.' IS AS CLOSE TO "BEING THERE", AS ANYTHING THAT'S BEEN DONE.

    Only the shovelware current-gen console versions that EA has a hard-on for shoving down our throats. The first 2 for PS1 were good shooters, in 1998. Frontline and Rising sun were crap. The assualts for PC were/are great. Allied assualt (5 years ago)=great. Pacific assault=great.
