That's clearly the best thing xkcd has ever done.


Ah, the memories. I'm just not sure if the memories are good, or bad. Confused

I have a decent card that plays current games acceptably on high settings. But even with the graphics turned down, RFG freezes at times (and sometimes it remains frozen until a reboot). I think it's just poor optimization. Apparently a lot of people are having issues with it, but they may just be ATI users like me.

I've noticed minor stuttering with my 4870, but hadn't worried about it too much. I'm curious to see if performance will change any with the new OS, though I doubt it will.

Heh, I checked the thread at the same time that it worked. I'm wondering if it was failing because I didn't have Java installed at the time (I'm busy doing a Win7 install right now). Thanks though.

Bah. The driver page keeps giving me an error (in both FF and IE) when I try to get the 4800 series driver for Win7 64. Anyone got a direct link?

I hope that the upgrade can be installed without having to go through a bunch of BS that everyone has been speculating about. I guess we'll find out soon.

Just installed 7 Home Premium 64 upgrade. Did a clean install, was running Vista Home Premium 64. No problems so far, but at the moment all I've done is get it running, install Firefox, install Norton, and come here. I don't even have most of my drivers installed yet.

That reminds me, I've gotta go nuke the windows.old folder.

GSB made my radar a couple of days ago, and is already on my must-buy list. I realize I can get into the beta if I pre-order, but seeing as how I've got a number of games on pre-order that all get released in the next month I think I'll wait for GSB to hit final before I buy.

Well I'll be. This one slipped under my radar. Having checked out the preview and website it's already on the must-buy list, but given that I've already got so much pre-ordered I'll probably wait until it's released to pick it up.

Let me tell you, after suffering through the Patriots loss to Denver last week, this was a nice change of pace. We're starting to get a bit thin in the running back department though, and I'm still not sold on Maroney--he dances a bit too much for my taste.

It's one of the few times I've actually felt bad for the other team though. I imagine it's going to be a very long two weeks for the Titans.

If you like Diablo, Diablo 2, Titan Quest, Sacred etc, Torchlight is definitely worth the look.

Yeah, I'm pretty much sold now.

Ya know, sometimes I hate the end-of-year push. I only picked up a few games on release day this year (far fewer than usual) and now, suddenly, my pre-order list is huge. And almost all of them getting released within a month of each other.

It's a good thing I'm single and get a two week Christmas vacation--I'm gonna spend all of it playing through the game backlog.

Is it really SURVERY-2009, or is it SURVEY-2009?

SURVEY-2009. Oops. Embarassed

They do a general email survey every few months (maybe 1 or 2 a year). At the end is a generic code; I don't know if it's tied to the account or not. Try it: SURVERY-2009. It was good for 15% off, I believe.

Just another reason I'm happy I pre-ordered. The wait might kill me, though.

Oy, I only skimmed over the posts, so forgive me if it's already been said.

I picked up the DE from Impulse a day or two ago for $52, thanks to a Stardock coupon I had tucked away for just such an occasion. At the time Steam didn't have either edition available. I'm thinking I've gotten a damn good deal, though I am a bit of a bonus whore. Anyone who takes the time to fill out the Stardock surveys can probably get the same deal....

Pre-Ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition from Impulse today. It gives me all the CE stuff I wanted along with the paid DLC, and I got it for $52 thanks to a Stardock coupon I had sitting around.

This game is worth $10 all day long, which I believe is what I picked it up for via Impulse awhile back. Great game, everyone should grab it. I would imagine the site is hammered right now, though.

As far as the TQ fanpatch goes, I see that the 1.17a patch is for digital downloaded versions. Should I install this in place of vanilla 1.17 or after 1.17? I can't find the answer in the readme's.

If I remember correctly the 1.17a patch was released in order to update the version listed by the digital game copies so that both hard copies and digital copies could play online together. In other words, you can install 1.17a on any copy without a problem. I'm not 100% sure of it, though. A little digging around might be in order.

yes, then install the fan made patch.

I agree. Make sure you pick up Immortal Throne and start with that, it'll take you through the entire game then the expansion. The best place for TQ info is here:

You'll find the fanpatch in it's own subsection.
