How low end is her machine? My 3 year old rig is an AMD Athlon 64 dual core 3800+, 2 GB RAM, and my vid card is a Nvidia 8800GTS 320MB. Think it will run it at 1440x900 with a half decent frame rate?

Only if you turn off shadows.

Notice how Bobby Kotick seems to think that the military exists, solely to protect "the Free market".

Jesus Christ what a douchebag.

an insight into the mentality of the American noble class... those warm bodies are just out there to protect my God-given right to buy another car (import, of course)

If I was denied a $166 million jackpot I'd be raising a fuss with real media outlets, not examiner.com...

damn 10 years... this is the only MMOG I've ever really enjoyed. Even with all the bots and macros it's still 100x more fun than WoW and EVE could ever hope to be.

I would be excited but new games are so poor these days that it's hard to get excited over anything...

News Comments > Pediatricians' Game Concerns
12. Re: Pediatricians' Game Concerns Oct 25, 2009, 16:49 dubfanatic
 
American Academy of Pediatrics is a scientific organization right?

No, it's a trade organization. This means they aren't above putting out some shitty, barrel-scraping literature review that fails to make a distinction between correlation and causation.

ETA: Kinda sad that only one other poster has mentioned this so far. Conflating correlation and causation is how these people make their living.

News Comments > "Assassin" Trademarked
8. Re: Oct 25, 2009, 16:24 dubfanatic
 
So anyone making an MMO or Multiplayer game in general cant use "Assassin". Movies can still use it, single player games can still use it, television shows can still use it. You can still say it. =)

No they can't. Read that blurb more carefully.

So, maybe we should just hug trees and eat grass and flowers instead? There's nothing wrong with eating meat, just be selective and prepared to pay more for GOOD meat and meat by-products. Unless you plan on eating as much roughage as a cow you're going to end up iron and protein deficient forgoing meat.

yes either we eat red meat all day every day for every meal, or we eat NO meat. THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND

I think I'm finally going to pull the trigger on Civ IV. Is Colonization any good?

There is only one winning condition, so there is really only one winning strategy. It's a little more satisfying to play since the patch but it's still nowhere near as compelling as Beyond the Sword.

LOL at those nerds on Ars defending commercial software pirates. That shit is why I stopped reading Slashdot. Looks like I'll have to stop reading Ars too.

Usenet is still the best. Yeah, there's lots of viruses and porn, but that's why you use an indexing site like Newzbin. Nobody downloads headers anymore (especially with the 1yr+ retention providers like Newshosting have now)

$10.00 is less than I spend on a lunch out of the office. In fact it's a lot less.

Where I live $10 can feed a person for a week, so L4D is worth less than that to me.
