News Comments > PAX H1N1 Warning

f I had the choice of being placed in a room with a thousand people who supposedly have contracted this *killer* virus <cough, cough> or having the virus injected straight into my bloodstream guess which one I would choose?

Please don't tell me you're an anti-vaxer. Otherwise I'd have to hate you. Whooping cough is making a comeback where I live because we have too many fucking idiots who think vaccines are evil.

Or they will find out it's another typical Korean grindfest and uninstall the game...

You're probably right, which is one reason why piracy is still done primarily using physical media in China and Russia.

GOG's versions of DOS games use DOSBox. There's just no way GOG could arrange to have these old games ported to native 32-bit Windows...

News Comments > Two New Europa Universalis Games
1. Re: Two New Europa Universalis Games Aug 20, 2009, 22:20 dubfanatic
 
More details on the EU3 expansion, as seen at Paradox forums:

  • Intriguing Casus Belli system, where wars have specific goals from start to finish.
  • Monarchs now belong to dynasties, with far reaching effects on the diplomatic model.
  • More involving and powerful Holy Roman Empire and Papacy options.
  • Special diplomatic options for Republics.
  • Set your National Focus in a province to enhance growth and strengthen your hold in the region.
  • Permanent Terra Incognita removed and replaced with impassable regions.
  • Cultural Tradition allows better advisors in the same way that Military Tradition allows better generals and admirals.
  • Spheres of Influence simulate the Great Game of the major powers.
  • More dynamic pirates. Issue letters of marque to plague the sea zones of rival nations.
  • Monarchs need to uphold their legitimacy in the eyes of their subjects
  • Many other additions and improvements.

    News Comments > Interplay Classics on Steam
    7. Re: Interplay Classics on Steam Aug 19, 2009, 18:48 dubfanatic
     
    When they stop selling a game, they seem to also remove it from your downloadables list too. At least that's what's going to happen with my copy of TOCA 3.

    Just to set the record straight here, GOG only pulled TOCA 3 and Colin McRae Rally 2005 because of licensing agreements in those games that were expiring. There was no way GOG or Codemasters could avoid blocking downloads of those games. In every other instance where GOG have removed a game from their catalog, the games have still been available for download by those who purchased the game earlier.

    Surprising... Victoria didn't sell well if I remember. I was hoping Crusader Kings 2 would be next but this is fine with me.

    I hate that the idea of "months" has become a long time and that people always want everything immediately.

    It's a game. What's wrong with instant gratification in games? And there's a monthly fee involved in this game...

    Yes I was using ATI's drivers. xorg does suck, as do 99% of all open source projects. I don't use Linux on a desktop anymore so none of this really matters to me...

    The last time I used an ATI card in Linux I'd get random hard lockups. I've never experienced this using nVidia cards.

    News Comments > Video Games = "Play-Like Activities"
    11. Re: Video Games = Aug 17, 2009, 14:00 dubfanatic
     
    You know spending millions in school districts for football, while the actual education and physical well being of the their community deteriorates. This may seem extreme, but then you probably don't live in Texas or another state that put's the delusions of lazy fat old men above the prosperity of the communities, cities and state itself.

    It's not just Texas... The school I went to in the suburbs of Seattle was the same way. They spent millions of dollars on a brand new gym while the actual education facilities, built in the 1950s when the town was a tenth of the size, rotted away.
