Your Questions About If You Choose To Take This Mission

David asks…

What old PC game is this?

I’m trying to remember the name of this old PC game I used to play with my granddad as a kid. Apologies in advance for the limited info but it’s all I can remember!

1. It used to run on Windows 98.
2. It was a tactical war/shooting game set in the future.
3. It was a 2.5D (two-and-a-half-dimensional) game I think. The camera angle was similar to the one used in Commandos.
4. You would control a squad of soldiers, each member of the squad would have different coloured armour based on their skills (I think). This was customisable at the start so you could choose what types of soldiers you wanted to take on a mission.
5. The game would take place in a city if I remember correctly. You could go into different rooms.

Feel free to list a bunch of possibles. I don’t mind researching them all individually! Thanks!
The gameplay looks very much like Shadow Watch except that it’s not a turn based game. Also Shadow Watch seems to have better graphics than I remember this game to have.

The opponents in the game, if I recall, looked very much like the soldiers that were controlled by the player.

What kind of weapons?

What kind of opponents?

It’s not XCOM. Sounds vaguely like Shadow Watch

EDIT: Would it be… Syndicate?

George asks…

Is it selfish if you don’t want to spend your whole life going on mission trips?

… Stupid question, kind of…
… And before I start, I’d rather not talk about this is any kind of ‘religious’ way, (as that may be some people who might answer) it makes me mad that people see helping people = religion, I’m not atheist or anything, but because of stereotypes, I’d rather talk about it in a general sense…
I’ve been depressed … it’s not really a constant thing and it’s not that I’m never happy… but kind of…. for more than 2 years. I have low self esteem and there are things that I really hate about myself, which is mostly why I am depressed.
…. I’m going to college, and I guess you could say I have to start thinking about ‘what I want to do with the rest of my life’. Whenever I think about this, I always think about it in an ‘if‘ basis — like IF my life turns out to be any good, then…. And I really don’t know… I love psychology … or I did in high school … although I’m not sure about it, like I don’t know if I would be any good at talking to people… When I finally have to choose a major it will probably be between that and something in science… as I might actually be better at that.
And, as it is, a lot of things that most people chase after, like being popular and facades of wealth and the ‘successful’ job like business or s/t… don’t make me happy ( I don’t admire rich, powerful people)
.. This sound really dumb and cliche, but… I’ve always sort of wished I could change someone’s life for the better… in a way. I don’t know… I might want to help people who are depressed see things in themselves…as I don’t think they are just being stupid and whiny and I can see that in myself.
And they say what makes you happiest is giving to others, instead of always seeing what you can get for yourself.
……..But recently, in religion class (I went to private high school) and in books they make us read and speakers that come and stuff… there’s all this about other people in the world. … Like all the starving children in Africa and all over the world, and all the third world countries and places where people are oppressed… and they say other people in more privileged countries should be doing more to help…
That makes me feel kind of guilty…. But for the people who do do stuff… it’s almost like…. an ‘all or nothing’ kind of thing… Like if you help at all you have to spend your whole life being a missionary or something….
Maybe I’m selfish for saying this, but I really don’t want to spend my whole life being a missionary trying to rebuild a country and putting in all that effort and becoming exhausted beyond reason just to see millions and millions more of desolate, hurt people every day… I mean, you‘re doing something really good, but it’s almost like your whole life is going by working, and it’s not really doing much good… in the long run or in the big picture or whatever.
Maybe I’m selfish for saying this too, but I want to experience other things, like falling in love and just being with that person (hopefully :) ) ,and just having fun, and having a good time with friends, and taking walks at night, and going outside on a lovely day, and shopping for clothes and cool stuff, and dancing in my room while blasting my music, and watching a good movie, and swimming, and yummy ice cream, and stupid stuff like that.
…….It’s not that anyone has ever told me that I MUST do this with the rest of my life or anything…
Normally, I wouldn’t have thought about it, but it made me wonder… why other people’s lives could be so unfair as I see a lot of injustices in my own….
So really, for me and the other 99% of people who choose not to make mission trips the sole basis of their lives, is that selfish?

admin answers:

Wow. There’s way more than one question here. :-)
People get depressed for many reasons, but the main ones are lack of purpose in life and not being true to themselves. The definition of selfishness is being concerned only with your own needs at the expense of others’ needs. That doesn’t sound like you if you feel you want to make a difference in people’s lives. That being said, you don’t have to take on an entire third world country. Mission work is not for everyone, just as one-on-one care is not for everyone. The world needs all kinds of people so you need to find the niche that fulfills you while helping others and being a part of something bigger than yourself. That includes falling in love, having friends, and nurturing your psyche – what comforts your soul and cheers your heart enables you to share your happiness with others.
This time in your life is one of soul-searching to discover what career and life path is right for you. Consider taking a Career Exploration class at the community college. Maybe being a high school or college counselor will give you the satisfaction of helping people like yourself figure out what life path is best for them. Ask your friends what they think your best qualities and strengths are and think about where you can use them to do the most good.
You are asking all the right questions about your life. Good luck!

Somebody answer me with this answer so what do you think about it do you agree or disagree or do you have any other choices any other ideas

Of the Cabernet sauvignon, I saw, understanding that you want a medium/full body, I’d recommend anything from Penfolds, Jacob’s Creek or Mission Estate (they’re all available here in Canada and they’re all good). If I were picking this up for myself, I’d order the Jacobs Creek Cabernet sauvignon reserve, especially since it is on special at the moment.

One last note, Cabernet sauvignon is intended for food, especially to balance out it’s tannins. Again, if it were me, I’d order the Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot or the Wyndham Estate Cabernet Merlot bin 888 for sipping by itself. Merlot mellows out the Cab.

I just want pick something good quality good for sipping and chatting something that is not for a new wine drinker i will drink with my friend who loves red wine not sure which exactly but he likes dry and he been drinking a lot of red wine in moderation so i need something that will suit for any body at nay day or at least most of them and will not brake my bank so yeah i need something like not for beginner something like medium or little bit better quality but at the same time non of like professional quality staff if you know what i mean

Try the “Barefoot” wines. Decent and very inexpensive.

Also, try “Banrock Station” from Australia. Very good Shiraz and Shiraz blend.
