News Comments > Ships Ahoy - EQ2: The Splitpaw Saga
14. Re: Once more... Jun 30, 2005, 09:43 Bludd
 
Every time they add content they charge for it? You're very wrong there, Creston.

There have been many free content additions to EQ2. Latest was an abduction scenario which was the first part of the Splitpaw Saga. Earlier, there was a minidungeon called Necromancer's lair and I believe there have been others but I would have to search the update notes and I can't be bothered with that now.

user error

I've never had a vpu issue

Why, then, is the only time I see this problem when I install Catalyst 5.5 and 5.6? I'm very experienced and I know what I am doing and I'm doing nothing differently with these new drivers but they give me problems like none have before. I shouldn't have to explain myself to someone like you who can't even capitalize properly and who doesn't use punctuation. Rolleyes

Well actually, my system never had VPU recover problems before this either and I've played more than Pong.

You do know that you can disable VPU Recover, right?

Ehm, there's a reason VPU recover pops up, you know. The driver has gone bonkers and has to be reloaded. If I turn off VPU Recover (and I have), the whole system locks up hard.

15. Same as 5.5s with EQ2 for me Jun 9, 2005, 16:06 Bludd
 
Cat5.5s introduced me to the wonderful world of VPU Recover. It would always kick in when playing EQ2 and before this, I'd -NEVER- have any VPU Recover windows pop up. 5.6 are the same in this regard. I have uninstalled them and gone back to 5.4.

7. Oh no Jun 7, 2005, 11:41 Bludd
 
Buy a cheap Radeon 9200 or Geforce 6200 or something. It's got shaders and the same crappy performance as GF4MX*

*in the GF4MX vs GF4 and Geforce 6200 vs Geforce 6800 way.

1. Great game Jun 3, 2005, 15:47 Bludd
 
I played the european PC version and it's great. Nice physics, good driving model and fun gameplay. It's a bit of a let-down that the customizations you can make to your car doesn't really change its appearance that much, though.

Lovely game.

7. Re: So May 24, 2005, 16:48 Bludd
 
Not very good, no.

Very clunky interface, not very exiting combat (think: less exiting than Diablo), cut scenes with sloowwwwww camera movements every time you talk to the big skeleton guy, clicks and pops at the start of voice clips. Also, the tutorial is laughable. You can't run around, only press space, 2, a, d and you don't really do anything.

There is some clever stuff revolving around the bard not understanding what the tutorial guy is talking about when he mentions pressing buttons and using the mouse and stuff.

Not worth it, though.

Usually, these comments mean "console exclusive." That is, only of Xbox, not for PS, GC, NRev and stuff and only for a limited amount of time. See: GTA3VCSA

200? That's almost four times the number of people that work at Bethesda Softworks (not including internal QA). Is it just me, or are 200 kinda a lot?

Interesting tale about a typo.

Glad to have Blue's back with the proper colour scheme and the comment section.

Level loads were insignificant for me, but then again I have 2 GB RAM

Anyway, game isn't very fun. No feeling to the weapons and the monsters keep respawning. Meh.

1. Skill-based combat? Feb 12, 2005, 06:12 Bludd
 
Player A has 10 (adjusted by strength and whatnot) in the Kung Fu combat skill and fights unarmed.

Player B has 9 (adjusted too) in the Two Handed Weapons combat skill and fights with a huge two handed glaive.

A walks up to B and presses a button that initiates combat. B responds with the same button-press. A wins because 10 > 9.

Fun.

where is X-com 3
It's been released already.

It was called X-Com Apocalypse and it wasn't very good.
