6. RE: No subject Mar 29, 2004, 12:01 islander
 
I thought they were dubbed "the heaviest"?

How much does the PS2 weigh with the Final Fantasy XI Hard Drive , the network adapter add-on, and 2 controller splitters attached to it?

Oh, and everyone know that if they were serious, it should have been $129.99..."Significant savings" my ass. Nice try, Bill.

Right, everybody knows they aren't serious. It's a company full of people whose sole intent in life is to play with your mind! They weren't able to make a fool out of you!

30. Re: Observation Mar 26, 2004, 17:23 islander
 
Kreilo, you missed the whole point of "technological innovation aside"

Maybe I should have said... It's been about about a decade since id produced a product that wasn't preceeded or suffixed with a number.

All sequels and prequels aside, we have Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake. Nazi's, Demon's and Alien's respectively.

There's nothing wrong with deathmatch, but I just prefer original concepts and hero's like in American McGee's Alice, or Deus Ex (the first one), the Thief games, Max Payne, etc.

Technological innovation aside... id software hasn't come up with an original idea in over a decade. That's ok. Keep pumping out those game engines and let -real- game designers make it fun.

35. BF:V vs UT2k4 Mar 15, 2004, 12:33 islander
 
I read and article saying that the "Medic" class that existed in BF:1942 is conspicuously absent from BF:Vietnam. This was a big disapointment for me because the medic was my favorite class to play in BF:1942. In fact, I never could see an advantage in playing an assault character class in favor of a medic who can duck behind a corner and heal himself. Maybe the game designers saw this too, but I think the idea of removing a "healer" class altogether was not a good idea. I almost always chose to be the medic or engineer in BF:1942 because I prefered healing my teamates (tanks or health, respectively) and supporting my troops then I did just running and gunning. I'm skeptical as to how the new classes will pan out given this.

On the other hand, I've been enjoying the UT2k4 demo a LOT. The only regret I have with this game is that my aging computer can hardly keep up when there are more than 10 players or so... which seems weird. On the assault maps, I get great FPS during a 4vs4 match, but during a 8vs8 match, I get major problems. I wonder how much this has to do with the extra player models slowing me down vs the extra explosions, gunfire etc. I also wonder if its the server itself that is having more difficulty with the extra players and it is just passing along the poor performance to me vicariously.

1. Xbox: Terrible Two's articale Mar 15, 2004, 12:24 islander
 
That article about the xbox was completely void of any useful information. The xbox has been around since 2001 and the main point of the article is "The XBOX conroller sucks."

Gee thanks for that point. Wow, I'm glad I wasted a few minutes reading that tidbit of breaking news! The only thing worse than fanboy news is fanboy news disguised as a serious article.

Janet Jackson is the last person who's boob I'd like to see. I can't look at her and not see Michael Jackson. I still feel sick.

34. Off Topic: Far Cry Dec 23, 2003, 16:45 islander
 
Looks like I've been selected as a beta tester for Far Cry.
Was I actualy "selected" or did pretty much everybody that applied to beta test get chosen?

Just curious, let me know if anyone here got an email about this today as well.

News Comments > On C-Z and DNF Release Dates
43. DNF is never coming out, accept it Dec 18, 2003, 14:56 islander
 
Seriously, the game is never coming out, ever. It's all a big joke. Whenever there is a conference call, and a publisher asks 3D Realms about Duke Nukem Fornever, all the guys say "we're working on it, maybe in about a year" then they hit the mute button and run around the conference table giggling and pushing each other into the bushes.

35. Re: LOTR Dec 17, 2003, 16:47 islander
 
They probably wrote bad reviews just so more people would visit the site

Couldn't agree with you more. I tend to disagree with the strategy though. In the short term thoes reviewers will increase their traffic, but in the long term they have destroyed their credibility.

I heard Rush Limbaugh talk about how liberals will dislike the whole trilogy because one of themes of the movie is that there is definitive good and there is definitive evil, and that evil can't be compromised, it has to be defeated.

Maybe the negative reviewers were rubbed the wrong way by this very reason.

25. Re: LOTR Dec 17, 2003, 14:56 islander
 
actually that rating has no bearing on anything because if you've seen the movie by now you're a die hard fan that would have liked the movie no matter what

Reviews on RottenTomatoes.Com are all professional (or semi-professional). It's not like Yahoo! Movies where morons give every movie an A+ rating no matter how much it sucked just so that they don't feel bad about wasting money on it.

18. Re: death to PC gaming! Dec 16, 2003, 13:21 islander
 
the PC has really done anything the consoles haven't been able to match. The only exception is Counter-strike and Day of Defeat.

That quote couldn't categorize you any more accurately than if you had a tatoo on your forehead that said 'NOOB'

9. Ooops! Dec 15, 2003, 11:02 islander
 
The girl is a very good actress if it is a fake. She sounds realisticly upset. Pretty awsome nonetheless.

Just listened to it again. It sounds fake the second time... the DJ took a pretty big risk/assumption in the call when he said that he pulled (Ricks?) business card from a local merchant. I don't know anybody that leaves there biz cards in those things, so the chances of the guy having left his card somewhere isnt out of the question but its not for sure.

Its still funny though

News Comments > Far Cry Beta Sign-ups
30. Diablo II example. Dec 8, 2003, 17:35 islander
 
I just remembered (reluctantly) that I was a beta-tester for Diablo 2, and one cool thing that they did was put my name "in the game."

If you go to the game credits, eventualy the "Ring of a Thousand" will appear followed by the 1000 names of the beta testers.

It's a dorky kind of gratification knowing that your name is in the credits of one of the best selling computer games of all time.

News Comments > Far Cry Beta Sign-ups
24. Beta Testing is for the company Dec 8, 2003, 17:04 islander
 
Here is my guess to why they do a 'free' 5000 player beta test... it's not so that these 5000 morons can actualy file any bugs with the company (since I'd venture few of them do), so much as it allows the company to test their infrastructure on a semi-large scale so that they can get an idea of how it will hold up when released to the population at-large. Their authentication server, their game browser, etc. These features are difficult to test and judge effectiveness on a small-scale. If these people bother to report bugs, that's just a bonus.

The second thing this does is allow great word-of-mouth advertising. If each beta tester tells 4 people about the game, and those 4 people tell 4 people that they know a guy who is a beta tester for Far Cray, etc. Then some "free" buzz can be built up about the game.

It seems like it's a lose-lose situation with you complainers out there... if the company releases the game without this type of beta test, they may experience unforseen problems that require those series of 3-4 patches within the 1st week (Halo?). -insert complaining- But if they use goobers to test their product (yes, they are using you like a 50 cent whore), then you get complaining about them not paying 5000 people, etc.

I think some type of compensation would be in order here. The company ought to give the 5000 losers a free copy of the game once it comes out anyhow.

    Enahs, thanks for the tip.

    I've recently been reemed by mechanics who consistently rip me off. I was considering taking a class on auto maintenance, but I'll give that book a try.
