News Comments > Mac and Linux QUAKE LIVE Tuesday

I'm not much of a fan for any ubuntu "Debian" style distribution.. It's just little things that seem out of place with it.. but that's perhaps because I've been in the Redhat camp of distributions for the last 10 years, Slackware prior.

Oh Verno, I knew you'd be an easy person to get worked up..

I'm not trying to make any valid arguments... WoW threads are great fun. So much conflict and emotion for just a game. I'm glad you participated, your my number one.

Verno how is blizzard desperate, they could publish no new content until the next expansion and still rake in billions.. Wouldn't that be more greedy or lazy?

How about this Verno, if your going to regurgitate some old arguments that many former WoW players make, Shit at least pretend you put some effort into it.

News Comments > Samsung Wants To Do Gamers a Solid

From what I gathered previous generation SSDs where bad on reliability.

I currently have 3 OCZ vertex series (two 30gigs and a 120g ) that I've had for 4 months or so. so far no issues or any noticeable speed decreases..

I'll let you know in a year.

Crysis is not a good a good example of load time IMO, Crysis load time is made up mostly pre-rendering that is happening on the CPU. sure SSD may make it get the textures and map data faster but most of it is CPU work.

A better test of SSD potential is say a MMO like World of Warcraft. in a crowded City it needs to fetch the textures of a hundred different players. on a regular 7200rpm hard drive you will wait a few seconds and slowly see people fill in, SSD there is almost no load time and all the model textures are there as soon as you get in.

Yeah MMO's are what I've seen in my experience that most benefit from going to SSDs, I can increase view distance and everything pops on the screen extremely fast... COD IV, Crysis and such.. I may notice a marginal improvement in load times that is all.

SSD are still pretty slick, it's most likely the best speed improvement you will notice on Modern PCs.

I dont know about anyone else but that story is creeping me out, I assume that was a CRT monitor that exploded, I didnt even know it could fucking do that.

I'm 99.9% sure a monitor can't do that unless somebody put a bomb in it.

I'm calling foul play myself on that story.. Computers / CRTs in general just don't blow up, even when they catch fire.

News Comments > Mass Effect 2 Footage
19. Re: Mass Effect 2 Footage Mar 28, 2009, 06:47 Trashy
 
Mass Effect is a great movie/story with game elements.

the cookie cutter random levels where kind of lame sure.. But the main storyline levels where definitely good.

If your looking for a straight up shooter this isn't your type of game.

Now post a game that you like and I can bash it for not being a game that I wanted it to be.

CoD4 claims to be an all new proprietary engine, But in the fine print on the box and jewel case there is a disclaimer that says, software technology from Id software. Meaning they based enough code off id's to necessitate a disclaimer.

The screenshots are labeled copyright by "iD" which leaves me a little suspicious. They didn't register their business under that name, did they?

All my game boxes have "id" no capital letters. Any copyright information says idsoftware

I'm not poor or old, I just came to the conclusion I don't watch TV enough to justify paying for Cable. I bought a USB ATSC tuner and have it on my media PC. I get every Major network in HD with just rabbit ears, so no complaint here

As for the delay it seems a little silly seeing they have been excessivly playing commercials for it on every channel.
