man if they're gonna go down that road, they might as well grow a real pair and do a commercial about fat chicks. at least that'd be sad AND funny, for like 2 seconds. and then directv's public humiliation would be delicious schadenfreude.

What the actual f**k! What is a "social module," and how does it relate to battling space fighters?

So, this would be the login screen for other MMOs? Not trying to be glib, just trying to find an analogy from another game.

it's the first release of a world hub, kinda like a big city in WOW. shops, bars, etc. more importantly, it's the first public look at the persistent universe where we'll all interact with the game on a large scale.

I only suspect this has something to do with Half-Life 3.

HL3 CONFIRMED!

wouldn't that be a wicked marketing move?

"today the vivevr is widely available... bundled with halflife3, built from the ground up as a vr experience."

One of the downsides to moving to Germany is that Youtube Streams are automatically blocked by default. My wife gave me a thing to bypass Germany's auto blocking system thing though, for Youtube videos it might work.

uh... what? are you being serious? all of youtube is blocked in germany? what on earth for? i thought germany was one of the more rational countries in europe.

Blacklist is a mediocre show that just happens to have James Spader in it. I like watching James Spader be sarcastic and witty as much as the next guy but hes all that show has going for it.

The GoT complaints are hilarious, people getting upset about what they willingly ponied up for in the first place.

more than that - what they willing paid for, watched, and isn't available to the general public. but noooo, it offends their sensibilities so it can't be allowed to exist at all.

what you mean by cheapo $200 sets exactly? the thing is, i'm doing all this in my bedroom and i really don't have the room to be building a home theater setup in here. from where i sit, midrange pc speakers and a 27" monitor are more than adequate. i just need it to work! pretty confident the audigy2 will work though as it has hardware dolby decoding and a dac built in.

Out of curiosity, what does your "very good" audio setup consist of? There hasn't been a decent PC-specific speaker set manufactured in a long time.

well, 'very good' depending on your standards. i guess a doomsday scientist would have higher technical standards than myself =)

it's an old logitech 5.1 setup, and compared to what pc speakers could be, they're very good. but yeah, i doubt they're audiophile quality.

bit off topic, but anybody know of a way to decode dolby digital/dts on a pc from an outside source? wanna hook up my console to my pc so i don't have to mess with the whole receiver/speakers setup.

What console - xbox360 had an adapter that did just that.

Don't all of the receivers now do passthrough of that HDMI signal? I don't know much, both of my receivers died a while back, can't try anything.

did what exactly? the point is i already have a pc with very good monitor/audio setup and i just wanna play my games through it instead of having to buy a receiver/5.1 speaker setup on top. i don't see how an adapter would do that considering no pc has a dedicated 5.1 input.

well thanks for the advice guys, for at least confirming what my internet-poking-around found out. i'm really hopeful the audigy2 will do the trick though.

i shoulda said i'm not new to this, just wondering if someone knew something i didn't.

apparently the only sound card that can hardware decode dolby is the old audigy2 line. i just bought one for $38 bucks off amazon, but i was wondering if someone knew a way to, say, do it in software from a spdif source. i kludged together something years ago but it was laggy as fuck. was hoping someone came up with a better solution in the intervening time. it's really surprising no one has considering i'm sure what i'm trying to do is pretty common - hook up their console to their PC's a/v system.

That's a can of worms. HDCP exists exactly to prevent people from doing this. Apparently there exist HDMI splitters that can strip signals of HDCP, but you'd have to be sure yours would do that. So console > splitter > capture card on PC. But then you'd have to be sure your capture card took that signal, which to my knowledge most can only take dolby digital at best. Capturing eight channel uncompressed audio is not something consumer-grade hardware is built to do.

Unless you absolutely positively have to record/stream, there's no reason to send an HDMI singal through a PC. That's what receivers are for.

that's why i'm doing it through the toslink connection =)

as someone's who politically apathetic, i think jd is far more right than 90% of americans who adhere to any party. the truth is always somewhere in the middle, but while obama hasn't been our best president, he's far from our worst. the dems in general aren't the smartest bunch, but the republicans are just insane asylum escapees at times. the worst part is the people that defend them don't give a shit about the truth, they just wanna defend their party.

some of what the dems have done can be argued to be detrimental, but it is just irrational to me how so many people can defend the insanity of the republican party. again, i don't follow any party or adhere to any religion, but if there's one thing i worship in life it's the truth. the republicans are basically the opposite of that; they're almost to spanish inquisition levels of head-in-the-sand anti-reason fear-mongering, intolerance, greed and hypocrisy.

strangely silent from bobbob for once =D

socal really does get warm in the summer though, esp. anywhere east of LA. where i work (ontario airport) july/august average is 95, and it's been 105 for a week. strangely though it doesn't feel as bad as when it was 90 with stupid humidity not long ago.
