I hate these fucking clowns so much.

First few times I did this I managed to miss the initial outreach after having to wait 15 minutes. For the session in the screenshot, I made damn sure I'd be there when they responded... but then they ignored me anyways.

I always thought it would be ultra cool for Neo to wake up after he "died" in the third one and realize that the reality being sold to them was actually still the Matrix.

The stupid thing is, this is what they implicitly implied when Neo suddenly gets the power to stop the squid things at the end of Matrix II while he's outside the Matrix. I was utterly convinced that that, combined with the Architect's speech, just meant that while everyone in Zion thought they were out of the Matrix, they were just in sort of a DMZ, kept away from the docile sheep in the rest of the system.

If you all haven't seen it, I highly recommend the movie The Thirteenth Floor. As well as Dark City (bonus: directors cut!), filmed around the same time as the first matrix, and I believe used some of the same sets, hence they look similar.


Saw that one. Also very good. There was also another movie out around the same time that had people in VR games and crazy reality twists, but I forget the name.

It is kind of interesting that 3 of the movies came out in 1999 (and Dark City in 98).

Gabe is great, and I love Valve, but let's get real here.

Gabe stood on Alcatraz island at an AMD launch event saying that Half Life 2 was ready to ship, and that it would be bundled with all new AMD cards. 48 hours later he had to admit the game was still at least a year away, and people got cd-key cards instead of a game.

Given his track record, I can see why he keeps quiet about HL3. When he has something to show, we'll all know it.

Yeah, HL2s delay was a major screwup, not the delay itself, but the way it was handled. As I recall, they promised HL2 on something like "sept 30" in May before that september, and then, as the summer went by, they went into some kind of panic mode, and instead of TELLING people that "its not coming out in september" they kept silent, and when they were asked in like late august early september if the game was going to be delayed, they said stupid shit like "Not that we know of..". Most people can deal with and excuse delays, but we dont like being lied to.

I totally understand that they dont want to create that trap for themselves, but it really was a royal screwup that they not only walked into, but kept making worse.

I suppose they have decided not to say anything until the game is nearly complete this time around, but how do you define "nearly"? I suppose when you have the content and game up running and playable start-to-finish, its about halfway there or so...

And there was the whole thing about some hacker leaking an alpha build they used as a convenient scapegoat. It was funny how much drama that caused with fragmaster at planethalflife.

Wow, I had almost forgotten about that.

I remember that I once wanted to run a gaming news site. My only substantial post was a breakdown of the HL2 fiasco after I had played the leak / physics demo. After that it became extremely obvious that the game wasn't ready, they knew for a long time, and were using the leak as a scapegoat.

Well we know Valve has been working on Source 2. So I would think they will build their flagship game to showcase the new engine. I hope it's as revolutionary as Source was when it finally got showcased. I still remember the jaw dropping abilities of Source when it was shown way back in 04.

They call the next major upgrade of the Source engine Source 2. When you play L4D2 or Portal 2 you're playing on an engine that at one time was branched/referred to as Source 2.

60 % of Americans believe the stories in the bible literally: Genesis, Noah's arc, etc. So the fact that they think HTML is a disease is completely pedestrian.

I only know what HTML and SEO are because I work in the industry. If I didn't, I might still know because I like reading about technology, but people with other interests may not. For example, what does ATM mean to you?

I wish I never heard about SEO.
Usually pisses me off just thinking about it.

Yes please.

Why do people say the Gunplay is like COD, when its not? Not on the PC any way.

Neither is the player movement, thank god. It doesn't feel anything like the usual Source game from valve either.
Thank god, those games are generally awful... got nuffin on id tech

Both have Quake engines as ancestors.
Should I have said id tech 5?, I should have, shouldn't have I since that is what I meant, I'm sorry. Obviously the old id tech is dated.

The Quake 2/3 netcode is still considered the best afaik.

Games using id tech 5:
Rage (2011) id Software
Wolfenstein: The New Order (2014) - MachineGames
The Evil Within (2014) - Tango Gameworks
Doom 4 (TBA) id Software

I guess I haven't played any of them, so I can't really speak to how it feels.

I've heard good things about its South Park-ness and not so good things about its RPGness but I'm okay with that.

Now I want to know about its stability. Anyone running into CTDs, bugged quests, bad clipping, graphical issues? If not I'm prepared to drop the $60 (which seems insanely high these days but used to be pretty standard).

Love the logo
I thought it was an allusion to the Tomb Raider box. But that was 1996.

I think its supposed to resemble the 'Thief' box.
Ahh, so it is. The only version of the Thief box I was familiar with was the square one. But they reused the Tomb Raider trapezoid for Thief at one point too.

Thief box

PC FF7 was also released in a box like that. I think it's still the only somewhat valuable game I have in my collection. Though I don't see it going for the hundreds that it used to on ebay.

I for one am looking forward to this game. I played the beta a ton, and loved it. Great movement, good balance, and solid map design. It's pre-ordered and I'm itching to play. I'll take good gameplay any day.

Now, I've also play a lot of Battlefield. Let's face it, BF4 is a goddamn mess. They're crowning achievement, months after release, is a relatively stable game. The first DLC had no levolution events (so much for that marketing bullet) and the promised balance pass still hasn't arrived. There are some horrible balance issues, especially with regard to the vehicles and map design (see the MAA and Dragon Pass for excellent examples).

Skipped BF4. What I'm interested in now is new game dynamics and stability. Something CoD and the BF series haven't provided for a while. That's exactly what I felt in the beta for Titanfall. If you can stomach almost 14 minutes of Sessler and friends I think they really cover a lot of what I'm thinking about.

I've also been playing a lot of Loadout. It's also pretty damn stable with a surprisingly good netcode. But it's F2P and has leveling weapons so it feels cheap beating up on people with a level 6 beam weapon against their level 1 rocket or something. I don't mind unlocks so much in mp fps, but leveling weapons that increase their dmg, acc, etc. are too much.

Kids do weird shit, so that's forgiven. I took a bunch of kids from church to Micky D's, and a ten year old got an order of fries and a frosty. Then she proceeded to dip the fries into the frosty before eating them... :o

Weird... a few days ago on another forum I'm on somebody posted this:

I've been known to go to McDonalds and order fries, and then go to the Wendys right next door and order a frosty. Then I dip my fries in the frosty. It's epic.

You don't believe kids would create logins to play the demo? That's the most reasonable guess about an unexplained number I've ever heard on this site.

I'd reckon it's in every computer lab in schools across the country derp, I mean world. Probably the "Oregon Trail" of its time.

If a school computer has Java installed the admin should be flogged. And that single rule prevents Minecraft on school computers pretty well ;p

I would be surprised if the majority of schools didn't have java on their lab machines. And even if they didn't it's trivial to install depending on the degree that the machine is locked down. Many schools use(d) machines that reset to image everyday or whenever they're turned off and on.

Well in that game you could control the direction at least. And needed to collect stuff. Shit that game is advanced compared to Flappy Bird.

It's more of a direct rip off of an old popular flash game with a helicopter and green barriers.
