Hexen 2 is a good game.

Not a great game, mind you, but good. I have a lot of complaints (mostly thematic stupidity, or problems they never shook from Hexen 1) but overall, it's fun. Isn't that what counts? (The second hub can still die in an inescapable lava pit, though.)

As with Hexen 1, I find it more enjoyable in co-op. Assassin gets really fun when you can backstab an occupied enemy. :twisted:

So, has anyone had any experience dealing with MSI laptops or computer hardware? All of the issues I found with MSI is their defective keyboards.

Well in any case MSI claims there’s “liquid stain damage” under the keyboard chassis. And voided the warranty repair, however as it stands many users on different platforms have complained about MSI using the “liquid” damage as an excuse not to fix the keyboard under warranty, due to the fact that their keyboards are widely known to be defective. I wish I had known this before buying the laptop in September.

I have dealt with two MSI laptops in the past 5 years and yes, both of the keyboards have quit working. I use external keyboards with both of them.

But unfortunately, outside of giving some confirmation of what you already know, I know this isn't really that helpful.

Both laptops were damaged in a lightning storm due to a power surge, so their HDMI ports stopped working too, but other than that, they work perfectly fine.

ironically enough, my bedroom tv's HDMI port fried during the one lightning storm i had this past fall.

As user of MSI products, no real problems to me...mostly were my problems...like hit power switch on the extension cord when the PC still on = MB went dead as toasted due the shitty no brand PSU or did something stupid when I were young that broke the hardware...the only problem from MSI I had was back when early 2000s, they put bad BIOS for my new computer's MB and their auto-update tool told me I can update the BIOS, then I did that and it dead after finished and reboot...had to take the MB to their place to replace the dead BIOS chip for free...and I were NOT the only one case about failed BIOS update.
(They pulled the BIOS update for my MB after that, and never had anymore BIOS update for that MB...so they screwed up for sure.)

Still I heard they did some shady things these years so I'm not surprised...still I didn't encountered any problems from them after the dead BIOS incident, maybe I'm luck or something, and I didn't use any of their keyboards...
I always using cheap ass keyboards in case it's dead I won't feel bad or something...until recently I got Cooler Master's CK550 RGB keyboard, after the Logitech G413 keyboard that I got for free went broken after used almost 1 year...AVOID anything about that Romer-G piece of shit!
