Me too... but don't really enjoy it so not been playing it much since day one. The perspective is too awkward to handle in my opinion.

Well, as some of you may have noticed, I've been lurking here for a while. I'm not going to post a welcome back post, seems like a waste.

But I just today noticed a real pet peeve, and so I can't think of any better way to come back than with a complaint about apostrophe's.

Sorry.

But does the first one become Call of Dutys, Call of Duties, or Calls of Duty?

The first one looks funny, and the other two appear to be plurals of "Call" or "Duty" rather than of the whole phrase.

Since you're dealing with an italicized title, I'm fairly certain that it would be correct to write it as Call of Dutys. This site seems to back me up. :)

Well as far as I am concerned I fell in Love with Crazy machines 2. What made it worth mentioning is it is thoroughly enjoyable. Never short on entertainment. I spent lot of time in this game already. I agree with you about the shortcomings you mentioned..

Thanks for a very good review.. You are a very good person..You could have said all games except yours are not good.

Just wanted to say welcome back agaricus5.
Patrick here, formally ToothandNail.
Been away myself for a while, don't even remeber what my old password was. Glad to see the Drod forums are right where I left em'.
