Imagination is the only limit to the power of the computer. It WILL happen eventually.

"50 other game developers had the same idea and already released/in the works."

Oh, come on now. Although many of these war games have been good, most certainly haven't reached the reality that they were going for or advertised as. Most of them I just feel like I'm being pulled around by a dog collar. OpFlash is the only game I've played that somewhat achieved this.

I have the same card and I had crashes to the desktop and some god awful sound problems, but doubt either have anything to do with the video card.

I don't really care what goes on at Valve, I just like games and stuff.

"Well duh ... I'm not stupid; I mean it IS a valve url

It was a joke based on my own past experience in marketing research for games.... "

I wasn't talking down or anything. Just making a comment... you know, conversational.

"Wow. Some game studios would kill for that kind of demographic info, Stolk."

They don't have to, huh... Valve did it for them. I find this yet another neat function (that I didn't think of) of a content delivery system like Steam... even though it had its rough start.

Another interesting piece of info there is the amount of people using AMD processers. In the world of Half Life, it seems AMD and Intel are neck and neck.

Edit: sorry that this has nothing to do with Unreal, but I got sidetracked.

Yeah, I'm sure. I think one could get that impression because people are constantly voting.

"Go vote right now. Everyone post this URL to other sites forum and lets get a grass roots effort to upset the bf1942 steamroller."

I've tried voting multiple times for Battlefield, but of course it won't let me. It is a tight race. I gotta give to Gamespy for coming up with a pretty neat little way to get down to the best voted game.

Also pretty interesting is the results of the Steam survey:

The amount of people that don't have XP sp1 strikes me as odd.

Edit: Again, I can't spell.

"Dipshits."

Um... Beyond Good & Evil is a great game that didn't sell well. The end of the game gave way to a sequel, but in all likelihood there won't be a sequel, and I can't blame the publishers. Great games don't always sell, and bad games don't always bomb. There are some nutty consumers out there. If there's a fear that a game won't do well, there's no reason to screw yourself, let another publisher take a whack at it.

"The only people that had a truly "open mind" about IW were those that hadn't played DX1 and had no expectations. That sums up a lot of the Xbox crowd and the game didn't do well on that platform."

I played Deus Ex 3 times and I just finished IW and liked it quite a lot. So you can completely retract your comment.

And yes, I'm yet another person needlessly replying to something someone said about ths game as if I think it would actually make any difference. Sigh...

Edit: and of course the game being DE:IW, not the game this news item is about.

Like I said, I'm at 20. I guess that sums up my feelings. I was a bit worried at the beginning, but the gameplay kicked in and I've really liked it. I wouldn't blame someone for not liking it. The 'choices' in the game are a bit plastic. But I dumbed myself down a little bit. They are taking chances a lot of developers won't take. Once I lowered my expectations, the goodness of it came alive. It's a matter of taste. Not everyone will like the same thing.

"Is it just me, or does the model of the scientist from 2 years ago, running on a 2002 cpu and graphics card look a lot better than any models in the game today? And the game seems to be running at a pretty good clip."

I've been playing the game throughout the last week. That looks like the same model I've seen about 200 hundred times so far... I wouldn't say it looks any better. But, I definitely admit that it is a bit strange that it does appear to be running very well, with all the shadowing included. It runs pretty well on my supermachine, but it really doesn't make sense how so many other people have had problems considering it had good performance way back then. Well... they must have added some features to the lighting system I guess.

[my version of ray] Wondering how reviewers said this is a 10 to 15 hour game when I'm probably at about 20 hours and counting.

Edit: can't spell.

"And you wont regret it. FireFox is bliss I tell you! Its just so much better than IE its just painful to even think how many people who going thru endless frustrations for years by avoiding this 10 mb download. I've only opened IE for testing purposes like 2 times the last year or so."

Endless frustrations? I have both Firefox and IE on my machine and use both for testing, and I honestly have no idea what you are talking about. IE 6 is a super-refined browser, with no frustrations to speak of. Firefox is nice too, and it has the tabbed browsing functionality over IE.

"I think FarCry was a bit overhyped. Yeah its pretty etc, but its not the second coming ..."

Funny. I thought UT 2004 is a bit overhyped and not all that. I guess we all have our preferences. I loved Far Cry. Close to the second coming compared to what has been out.

"It's part of a spyware program called gator. It's not supposed to be there. I've fixed my prob, you may want to checkout spybot Search and Destroy, free and it found lots of things on my sys."

No, it's on every XP installation. It completely lacks danger.

That folder is on all XP machines. I've never been able to delete it, but someone else may know how.

No luck here because of technical issues. Tried it twice. After a minute of so it slowly begins to flake out until it finally crashes and causes a reboot. Damn. I hade high hopes.
