I had the exact opposite impression when I read the notice.

News Comments > New NVIDIA GeForce Drivers
6. Re: New NVIDIA GeForce Drivers Apr 3, 2009, 14:06 Bill Borre
 
I've had a terrible experience with this file this morning. I have updated drivers for my 7800 card on a different computer at least half a dozen times and never had an experience like this. When I clicked on the exe file it wiped out Nvidia information in the device manager leaving only the SVGA option. Then I compounded my misfortune by observing the check box for 'Do not use this option' and thought to myself 'Maybe if I select that, it won't use SVGA and will use instead Nvidia drivers that surely must have installed' but all I got after booting was a black screen. I tried booting off the XP disc and repairing the Windows install but now whenever I boot it it just hangs while displaying a message 'Windows Setup is completing' My previous driver version was .69 and guess there was too big of a gap between that and .825. My hard drive is 200 gigs, mostly full, and I don't want to reformat the disk and do a fresh install of Windows and I don't have a mirror. My game computer is now a big paperweight. Any suggestions?

lol. I would've preferred a less wordy Torment. I hurt my back in the warehouse in 2000 and then I made it worse by being unable to tear myself away from Torment while sitting with poor posture. Torment put me in Torment. I spent eight months in pain because I could not stop playing that game and reading through all that text. 2000 was not a good year for me.

I don't understand why the law would not be amended to force TPB or other torrent tracker to keep user information. If the copyright owners lobbied for such legislation, then you would just be paying for your VPN until the new law and then you would just be back to the present day situation. It seems to me what the copyright owners really want is for ISPs to filter out torrents of copyrighted material and I'm surprised they don't lobby for such legal changes.

Since the subtitle is about the most important element in a modern video game, we will continue to pursue this burning issue to the depths of the oceans.

lol, Blue

I liked the first one but disliked the second one where most people seemed to have liked both. shrugs.

I think games surpassed films in storytelling potential back in the days of Wasteland and Bard's Tale.

I read your review, but I assume you were not reviewing the PC version, as there was no mention of the various technical problems. I'm running the game on a PC that is under spec, but I've gotten through 30% of the game before being stopped by missions with a timed element. Because my FR will often drop so badly I can't complete missions like Red Asphalt or shooting down the six helicopters since I need a minimum FR to aim or move fast enough to get to the end goal. This is really strange since a great deal of the time my FR is perfectly adequate on a P4 with a 7800 vid card. Maybe there is a memory leak somewhere in the code causing the problem?

You know that bug where the gun never cools down forcing you to restart

lol. That was a bug? I just thought that I couldn't figure out how to get it to cool off. It happened to me in the end-game boss fight and I was just running around avoiding his blasts yelling at my group-mates to hurry up and pick him off.

Am I the only one who thought the game was sorta dull? I guess the main story was ok, but I thought exploring the planets was pretty yawn-inducing. Hopefully they'll put more work into the exploration aspect in the sequel.

Someone did a mod for Neverwinter Nights based on Dante's Inferno which was quite like the book. You can probably still get it off nwvault.

I never really understood the hatred directed at Deus Ex 2, but after slogging through FEAR 2 I think I can understand.

Yahtzee must be bored with so little games to play that he's playing such an old title.

Yeah, I keep hearing what a great SINGLE-PLAYER game the original was, but as far as I can tell of this mod, it is multi-player.
