Yeah, I caught that and was correcting it when you post. Thanks. What are the latest video card offerings anyway. Anyone here keeping up to date? Wondering what are the top dogs from both camps. I'll go check that list that has all of them graphed out for the past few years... think it's on Tom's. Bad news is it may get me thinking I need an upgrade.

edit: From the look of it GPUs like CPUs are not making huge strides over the past couple years. Going to stick with what I have for a while longer.

I was again just blown away by the fact that I too have a GTX 260... for about a year and a half now... plus a PC build that is going on three years old... the best part... I feel no need to upgrade.

Playing DA:O on max settings 1900x1200 with nothing to complain about.

Edit: Damn, it sucks getting old and not checking my dates before I post. I guess it's not as old as I thought. Subtracted a year from that 260. Still not doing badly. The PC is really that old. And it was just a middle of the road build no where near cutting edge.

I never bought the first one or even gave it much thought... and yes, it was the stupid name. But this one I will most likely pick up sooner or later. I'm milking DA:O and still have yet to crack the shrink wrap on both Uncharted 2 and AC2. Going to be a busy gaming holiday season.

Has anyone tried Fort Zombie? I'm too busy with a few other titles right now, plus a few Indie games I have intentions in buying. Fort Zombie is down there near the bottom of the list. I'll get to it eventually.

Besides the issue with D2D pre-load not unlocking and starting the download over again it's been the longest install process evar! Once downloaded it took 1:15 minutes for me to install and get all DLC into the game. I jumped thru hoops and sacrificed a couple chickens before it was all said and done.

So far the game has been mucho fun. As a Danish Elf Mage. Only problems I've seen are textures changing or alternating colors while in a cut-scene. Other than that it's been good if not a bit too easy on normal. I hear it gets pretty hard though.

Loving this new DSL connection 7.85 GB in about an hour. Not to shabby...

I held off on Demon Souls and Torchlight until I get over Dragon Age and finished with Risen. Hell, I haven't even broken the shrink wrap on Uncharted 2 yet.

Well I've learned another time that if you're in a hurry for the game go pick it up.

I bought D2D's version with the $5 guide since I know my friend will be asking me a ton of questions. I hate using guides but what the hell for an extra $5 I got it. So I downloaded the game yesterday and was waiting for the unlock. It didn't happen at ten so I went to my account and it had another page I'd never seen. It had all my codes and other stuff. I hit the download button hoping it (their download manager) would see I already had it... but no... it's downloading the entire game again. At least I think it is. It's screaming at 1.4Mbps but still. LoL

Most of us are going PC some 360 but strange enough my friend in Jersey just bought the PS3 version which wasn't supposed to be out until Nov 17th. They really screwed the pooch on this one. When I went in LameStop the manager didn't know shit about this game. He told me there is no street date yet.

News Comments > Steam Top 10 Part 2
27. Re: Steam Top 10 Part 2 Nov 2, 2009, 18:15 Paranoid Jack
 
No matter what somebody... anyone says while discussing games in a games forum even and no doubt... somebody will call it whining. So what do we call it when people are whining about others posting comments about games that aren't really whining but somehow several posters will always make the stretch to consider any comment whining?

Isn't that whining about whining that isn't whining? Strange little cycle some people seem to get caught up in. Maybe Sargos gave his whole get outside enjoy life advise to the wrong person? If you people don't like discussions concerning games why are you visiting these forums to begin with?

"You would ignore the huge advantages Steam has over EA and D2D just because they might release it a few minutes late?"

I don't think you have read or paid attention to all the info. Steam's release will be two hours later (noon) at the earliest. And we all know their noon release is nothing concrete. Big... huge difference when you're trying to say "minutes". Besides I'm fed up with their total lack of info when it comes to highly anticipated releases. I know they're the big man on campus but that doesn't mean proper customer service or even responding to these questions on their forums is not necessary.

"I think you need to put the keyboard down now and step outside. The place beyond the doorway. Your future depends on it."

So now you know me? From one little post? Are you The Amazing Kreskin? LoL, Come on down we'll go for a stroll along the bike path. I'll see if you can keep up with me while we jog eight or ten miles.

Direct2Drive now has a special for both versions of DOA. For $5 more you get the Prima Guide with it. Not bad if you use guides... still looking as far as their "unlock time".

Edit: D'oH! It's rigth there in little blue letters. 10am PDT so unless Valve gets their heads out I will be buying D2D. I love Steam but hate the way they screw you around some releases. Especially if you have the day off and want to play the game as soon as possible.

I held off with all my might and didn't buy Torchlight because of DOA. And I haven't bought DOA yet... digitally at least until I'm sure they are unlocking it before the late afternoon. I know you can get it from EA.Com for a 10am PST unlock and it's a pre-load. Any other digital distribution sites doing a guaranteed AM unlock?

Looks as if Steam is a Noon-ish unlock but they have a poor record of not sticking to their damned countdown clock. So that leaves me with EA.Com or D2D.

Finally some better marketing videos. And even though this is all CGI it's nice to see it. I haven't read any of the latest flurry of interviews. I think I have heard enough but I like to see a bit more... my guess is I'll have to stop reading and watching all the hype so as not to turn me off or spoil the games release. Wasn't planning on buying Dragon Age day one but when Alpha Protocol slipped into 2010 it left a hole in my Fall line-up.

edit: I think I remember that too Creston. I think they mentioned it was in pre-production?

News Comments > Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans
45. Re: Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans Oct 7, 2009, 22:53 Paranoid Jack
 
After readings some of the responses here I see how varied peoples reaction to something like this can. Not really a huge surprise for the BluesNews forums.

My initial response was.. cool! But then I too started to question why and how this DLC came to be ready for sales the same day as well. Now the only question I really have is... is it worth $7.00? But then that is very subjective too is it not?

I'll need to read the full review and/or description of the DLC before I decide since there will most likely be user made content within days if not hours of release. So for all you offended just chill. Decide if you want the game for what the game is and what it has to offer. Yeah, there have been quite a few marketing speed bumps since Spring but if the final product is as good as they say I for one can forgive and forget.

And not to kiss ass or anything like it... thanks for the feed-back Derek.

News Comments > OFP: Dragon Rising Dedicated Server Plea
23. Re: OFP: Dragon Rising Dedicated Server Plea Oct 7, 2009, 19:59 Paranoid Jack
 
A friend almost talked me into buying this one two days ago. I'm glad I held off because as with the previous games (OFP and ArmA) I spent 75% of my time playing multi-player... and since Dragon Rising's multi-player community will be hampered by the current situation I think I'll pass on this one.

I've held off on ArmA2 also and I'm some what glad I waited on it also. I'm sure I will pick up ArmA2 eventually but I'm so glad I didn't jump on that TrackIR5 package.

News Comments > On BiS's Cancelled Fallout 3
2. Re: On BiS's Cancelled Fallout 3 Oct 7, 2009, 18:31 Paranoid Jack
 
Sorry (but also glad) to see Alpha Protocol slip into 2010. Sorry because I wanted it now. Glad because there are just too damned many good games out now and/or coming out very soon. Plus I'd be willing to bet it needed more polish. I just hope they use the extra time to their full advantage. I like Obsidian and I think the game will be good at the very least.

I'm busy with Risen, which is superb... even if some may think it's short. I've had numerous hours of fun so far and I went straight for Harbor Town and have yet to finish half the quests in there.

Uncharted 2 is going to be huge. It's a blast to play Co-Op and Multi-Player... and the Single-Player game is suppose to be the second coming. So that one will eat up a lot of time too.

Then we have Dragon Age: Origins which will be good if not great. I'm thinking I'll be more than happy with it since I haven't followed it with baited breath.

I'm with you on Fallout: Vegas. I hope they take the best of F3 and add tons more cRPG elements too it. I'll be somewhat disappointed if they make another 3rd person shooter but with more RPG in it... it could work. Hell, it worked for Bethesda and F3 was lite on the RPG. More of an action adventure game if you ask me.

Anyway, things are looking good for the next six months. And most likely we'll be getting Rage during that time frame also. Which leads me to the possibility (since id was bought out) that the tech5 engine may be used for both Fallout 4 and Fallout Vegas. Exciting times ahead for us gamers.

As far as the voice acting and graphics... I think they are both quite good. I have yet to hear any NPCs repeatedly moaning the same line in multiple personalities. I would say the voice acting is average or above. The cut-scenes aren't much as far as length but the in-game dialogs are good. I'm enjoying myself completely.

As far as that Glen Beck video it was for a magazine cover photo shoot. Use your brain, Dude. What did you think he used Vicks to make himself cry while he's on the radio? Not extremely familiar with his programs but I thought he was a radio talk show host?
