lol throw gun? its the physics gun
Wrong!
The physics gun is totaly diffrent. The physics gun is like a tractor beam you can wiggle stuff around with it and shoot out splooges that attach to objects that you can move around. Its just for showing off the physics.


The throw gun is the gravity gun(IIRC), and all it can do is grab medium to small objects and throw them. The funnnest thing to grab and throw are these rolling landmine balls. They get pissed off.

These master lists are fun.
If you are a server admin, and someone is being a jerk you can just report them for cheating, and then they get screwed!

I'll just wait an hour or two until someone makes the workaround distribution for it.
[SC]TherMight

Hey, looks like you overestimated the time by several hours!
the workaround came out 7 minutes after you posted that.

Hump, did you even read what that other guy was asking for?
He didnt want Blue to take away the adds, he wanted an EXTRA option. If he payed a monthly fee, then he would get a version of it without adds. So your complaints are sortof groundless.

snide: just install Mozilla Firefox.
It has popup blocking built in, and you can block banners too.
Also, it has one of the best option extensions, click-to-view flash. So were with IE you would have some garbage animation covering the whole page, with Firefox you just get a box where the banner normaly shows up, telling you can click here to start that up.

Right now bluesnews looks about the same it did several years ago for me.

on a tangent:
" If the auth server is down, anyone can play, which is better than nobody. "
This is much better than the crap system ubisoft used for Raven Shield.
At a LAN with no internet access it would not let us play, because it could not contact the master server.
That really pissed us off. Why buy the game when you have to go to crack sites and download hacks just so to let you play it?

the biggest mystery is how those crappy cd protection companies ever convinced publishers to start using their garbage.
I think it must have involved bribes.

I wish I had thought of it first though. I mean your protection doesnt even have to really work, and then you can charge more for the new version of it.

Is anyone going to actually use this?
its 8 dollars per player slot, 8 slot minimum, per month.

So for a 20 player server that 160 dollars!
For that much money I could buy the connection, and a computer to go with it.

I think I know a good solution for cheat prevention.
Have the game able to detect cheats, but do NOT have it do anything about them, except include that information with the other information that is sent to the master server, and when a user has used cheats/hacks a random number of times, then the master server could ban their cd-key.
Because there would be no way to tell if a cheat was invisible offline, it would greatly slow the new cheat production, and people would be hesitant to run it.

rock_climber:
That is the same attitude microsoft had. They wanted to push out a pay per use system, but now with linux starting to become more accepted they are having to change their whole plan.
Microsoft is now even forced to give free licences to 3rd world governments, just to keep them from switching to a free OS.

Arn't Gabe N and some of the other Valve people former microsoft employees?

Also, its not "conspiracy theories", No one really thinks they are all secretly working together, a conspiracy. Its just capitalism at work. ie: screw people out of as much money as you can.

"pardon my language, but I was playing Day of Defeat, minding my own business, and then it crashed and told me that I had finished downloading Condition Zero, and now all I need to do is buy the key from them. They made me download a 250-300MB file without asking me? Those fucking assholes."

That is the kind of shit people are worried that steam will be doing.
Next it can scan your computer for mp3 files and report possible violations to the RIAA.
To better serve the customer...

"Derek Smart, it is time for a career change, mabe your good at cleaning toilets."

Probably not, because he cant stop talking, and with all that shit coming out of his mouth, the toilet would never get clean.

It was lame for the reason BewareDAnewbie said.
The combat sucked. They should have had a mode with realistic damaage for everyone except you.
Not the current "shoot everyone in the head 12 times with a pistol to kill them"-mode.

" Truth be told I've never seen Bad Boys II, just read tons of articles and seen clips, and am still amazed at the stupidity of crashing through the shanty town and destroying it, along with all the innocent people in it, yet still being heroes. "

They were in CUBA, so those were cubans they were killing, so its not like they are real people anyway.
Also, cubans were behind the evil drug ring too.
I dont really understand USA's hatred of cuba, it seems pretty stupid. If the US had just alowed trade with them, they probably would have droped communism by now.

I like how the game demands a connection to the internet even for LAN games, even when there is NO internet.
Forcing people who shelled out money for this game to go to crack/warez sites just to be able to play it.

Nice job inspiring people to buy your games in the future.

I dont think people would like the constant dieing, and the slow rates of fire for most of the guns.
