Yes and Old Blood too :D

 

I prefer Old Blood for obvious reasons (The mighty of Castle Wolfenstein :P )

I have yet to play the Old Blood DLC myself however I have finished the original and it was fantastic.

 

The graphics were awesome, the story was a lot of fun, the weapons were great and the enemies were interesting.

 

The only thing I didn't like about it was it was the usual cliche of "Unt vee are zee germans KILL ZEE JUDEN!!" sort of hollywood shit they stereo type Germans into but hey it's just a game that doesn't take itself too seriously so whatever.

 

As a side note if you are interested in the fictional "what if the nazis won" sort of world, I really recommend checking out Amazons new series "The Man In The High Castle".

Nice, i might grab it for the price then too. :) I like what the company did in the past, the 2 Chronicles of Riddick parts, and Enclave. Just found New Order to be a little bit too much in the style of Inglorious Besterds instead of being what Wolfenstein used to be. Bit too much focus on Hollywood virtues like action bombast, "cool" characters, and some brash cheeky dealing with the historical content. Can't explain it really, Return to Castle Wolfenstein was more real, while at the same time being grotesquely over exaggerated and trashy. Just perfect. :) New Order didn't really capture that so well.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.

      Just found out piped.kavin.rocks has a build-in audio-only for video's (great for music video's). Never thought something like this (including browser extensions) excisted. This would have saved me a lot of money on vacation, where I was camping without wifi.
