BTW, has anyone else been having problem with YouTube lately? Videos seem to be stopping randomly between 10 and 30 seconds before it reaches the end. It's fucking pissing me off, even moving the slider back it will stop and jump back to the end. I have to take note of the exact time it stops and move the slider to 1 second past that to see the whole thing.

I've been having a problem for about the last two months with videos buffering about 1/3 and then stopping or when I change to 720p or 1080p, it takes forever and a day to buffer...and it's not on just one system, it's all of the ones in the house. If I go to videosift or watch a video on any other site, it's fine. Only Youtube does it. Now that is maddening...

While cautiously optimistic, you guys have to remember that in the original press release, they said that the new movie of the new trilogy was already being worked on and they had a plot for a while. Add that to the statement from Lucas that if he DID make another trilogy, the story would be NOTHING like what came out in the books, it has me hoping that I'm just being paranoid. I'm also wondering what this does to the live-action Clone Wars tv show? Is it coming out still or was it cancelled?

As for LucasArts...I think it will be some time before we ever here about the possibility of an X-Wing/Tie Fighter revival. Disney has money to make up and they're going to do that by throwing anything out there that they know will sell barrels and buckets. Keep in mind, the space-sim genre is thought to be dead and a 'niche' genre. I don't see them changing that any time soon. Though, if Roberts has a good release of Star Citizen, they might change their minds. And since they say they will probably just license it out, they might even give it to Roberts to make...which I like and don't like in equal quantities...

The only thing we can do right now, unfortunately, is sit and wait...like usual...

Welcome back to civilization, Blue! I have to ask, did you really feel out of touch with the world with no access? Some people say they're ok with it, doesn't bother them and others say they freak out and think it's the end of the world. I'm curious...I know whenever the power goes out here (often), especially at night, that little voice in the back of my mind wonders if it's just a glitch or the beginning of a nuclear holocaust...Anyway, good to have you back, Blue! I got lots of news to catch up on, apparently...

Oh, and your honored underlings here think that the Blue->Black front page gradient would be swell!

That has been their MO with the series ever since GTA III. I think part of that strategy is the hope that some fans will actually buy the game twice. I admit I did with GTA III and Vice City; once on the PS2 because I couldn't wait, then again on PC for a better experience at a more reasonable price. Actually announcing the superior PC version is coming in a few months would cut down on the impulse console buys. But of course it will come.

You know, you guys are bitching but entropy already gave the game away...you and I know damn well *R will put out a PC version. They haven't NOT put out a GTA before on PC, why stop now, eh? Yes, yes, RDR wasn't ported. It's a shame and I really don't see WHY it wasn't. It doesn't do anything that makes it 'console exclusive'...really, it's just a wild-west GTA, almost to a tee...I think some of you guys get your knickers in a bunch on purpose...like instead of coffee or that line of coke, you come on here and bitch to get your blood flowin'...hey, whatever floats your boat, buddy...

I know it's too much to ask, but really what's the chances of EP7 actually being about Thrawn?
O M G. If it were! That trilogy were THE BEST star wars books ever written. The story was incredible. That trilogy got me into buying basically ever star wars book that ever came out... until the last few years when they started killing off major characters, blowing up the galaxy, having his kids turn dark and kill each other, etc.

You know, I was just thinking about this very thing the other day...I got the feeling that they had just run out of ideas that far out from the original story. I mean, how many times can the galaxy be nearly obliterated? And how many times can you re-form a government and be taken seriously? How many different republics and 'alliances' have there been now? 4 or 5? And how they've nearly killed almost all of the 'next gen' of characters. Whatever happened to growing old? Hell, if Obi-Wan had been around for the extended universe, he probably wouldn't have made it past 40...

Can't believe old school black is so un-preferred...

Well, it has been a while since the site was all black, so newer visitors might not even realize that it was that way before. I still think the Blue->Black gradient is the most appealing...

Why the hate for GTA4? I don't get it at all...I still play GTA4 with the Police Pursuit mod (can't get First Response working no matter WHAT I do) and usually lose 4 hours in it before realizing. Is there any better benchmark for what a good game is? If you play a game and have fun while losing yourself and track of time, I don't see the problem. I swear you guys are way too f'n picky sometimes...

Oh, oh, oh, I wanna play! I don't watch football that much (GASP!) but I follow it casually, especially when it concerns 'my boys', the Giants! That said, I'm going to put my status as Giants fan on the line right out of the gate by choosing Dallas. I know the Giants, I've watched them play for over 25 years and when it comes to the Cowboys, it seems like some kind of mind control, they just screw it up every time. I love them to death and will to my dying day but I'm also a realist and I just don't see them winning this one...

So, my picks...Vikings, Jets (God help me!), Chargers, Titans (ugh), Patriots, Packers, Eagles, Steelers, Seahawks (ugh x2), Panthers, Chiefs, Cowboys (Lord forgive me!), Broncos, 49ers...

EDIT: Damn, I just happened to notice that I broke the 1000 post barrier! And it was probably months ago given how little I'm able to post nowadays...but a 1000 posts? I really need to get a more exciting hobby...outside...

*Checks nin's post count*

Uh, nevermind...I gather from the fact that my skin is nearly translucent, nin, that you're pretty much 100% pure Albino now?

Unfortunately, GRID2 comes without a cockpit view ...

Surprisingly, even though I consider myself more a hardcore simracer (iRacing, Race07/GTR_Evo,GTR2, rFactor, GPL, NR2003/7) than most, it doesn't bother me. To be honest, when I play the first GRID and even DIRT1/2/3, I use the roof/hood view. I can see more of the road that way anyway. I lose some situational awareness, but I can make up for that with sound of opponents next to me. Some racing sims/games are so 'realistic' that they have to include the cramped cockpit view when in reality, since you're not in an actual car, makes it a lot harder to run. It's that whole real vs. fun line that you ride and if I can't see where the hell I'm goin', I'm not having fun...

I dunno, most are saying that it's just going to appear on a live shoot of Top Gear. Hard to tell. Apparently there's two separate cars, one in the US currently on a race tour and another in Europe. They need to concentrate on GRID2 and leave DIRT alone for a while...

News Comments > Painkiller Hell & Damnation Trailers
5. Re: Out of the Blue Oct 23, 2012, 03:24 Rigs
 
I really liked the first Painkiller (not to mention painkillers in general!...~ZING!) and was fine with getting the 'So black it's BLACK' GOTY edition when it came out (it and it's 7 f'n cds!) but since then everything else has just been a rehash of the original. The enemies, the levels, the weapons, the graphic and physics engine...all pretty much the same each time. So when I saw this trailer (without knowing that it was for a new release), I thought it was just a mixed edition of all of them together or something. Seriously, nothing in that trailer showed me anything different than before...even the same musical score...

No thanks, I'll just play with what I have, thank you!

You guys are too fuckin' picky!

I know, I know, don't give me the riot act. For the 'hardcore gamer' tag I routinely use (and throw around at the all-night parties with the ladies...at Denny's), I never did finish Doom3. In fact, I don't think I got more than 15% into it! Same with Quake4. Hell, even less with Quake4, I got to the point in the beginning where you have to go back and get the medic and bring him back. That's as FAR as I got...lol...it just didn't interest me much. I got further in Republic Commandos than Quake4 even! I guess I'm spoiled on per-location damage and severed limbs/full dismemberment mods. I just can't go back to shooting something and just getting a generic puff of blood with no visual effect...yeah, who's being picky now, eh?
