Grading on a curve article confirms what I've been saying for years. IGN reviews & reviewers are a joke!

I have no problems with ut2004... got my moneys worth, the game was polished ..few bugs etc.

2004 did not have the same magic as the first UT but it's d@mn good! With those nods you actually see team play unlike what we see in most games. I'm 31 & i can still handle the twitch fest even though i don't find it that fast. A good driving game requires as much fast twitch fibers as deathmatch in UT2004 so unless i want to be stuck playing sims & tycoon games for the rest of my days
i have to keep those twitch fibers active

IF who ever makes the UT games listens to the online community & gamers in general the next UT should bring the franchise back to it's good old glory days.

Parallax Well said my friend.

Great games seem to have horrible deaths with EA. I stopped buying EA games after they ruined NFS (a long time ago). I gave bf1942 a chance just because of DC. After seeing all the isues in BF , BF:V, NFS:HP2 & NFSU I doubt i'll play any EA game soon including BF2.

Hard to get angry when you get a performance boost with almost every release

Now oh great one let us all know what game you beat in 20 min? I'm sure you beat the original pitfall in 20 minutes...same with river raid, pac man Q-Bert etc.... Keep the BS for yourself kid! Like i've said in here before back in those days i was on a vic 20 ...never owned a console but back then all the kid had an Atari or something like that.. Even those guys will tell you 20min to finish any game is total crap... If you are going to make up stuff at least try to be realistic

Good to se i'm not the only one. I had a 9700pro & switched to a x800xt a few months ago never had a single issue with the 9700pro. It would be interesting to know what mainboard people with problems are using?!!??! Then again it might be cause i use rivatuner & winguide tweak manager to set up my machine (doubt it).

I never even had the punkbuster problem in BF1942 or DCX.

I agree ..most people seem to quit because they can hit anyone with the spinfusor. IT takes skills even at close or point blank range to hit someone with the spinfusor. I do not find the weapon to be hard to master but I figure that's the main reason for the lack of players.

Even when you look at that Electric playgroud gaming show, that's what they are looking for. Games that have no learning curve, that they can jump in & finish in 10 to 15 hours, anything more & they complain ..give it a 6.5/10.


Old School PC & console gamers have no problems with having to take time master a game. We went through the the good years of Atari, coleco, C64, XT PC gaming... before the n64/ps1.. easy is better days of gaming.

I'm no console expert but even my best friend who is an Xbox only gamer complains that games are to easy compared to the good old Atari 2600 days. 24 hours after halo 2 came out seems like half the people had already finished it. Kind of like those COD games or Max Payne!

This is just one old guys attempt at understanding the state of gaming. I'm probably wrong! Anyways the gaming industry is so big now that just like movies ..things are dumbed down to make sure everyone aged 6 to 60 can understand thus maximizing the sale potential.


Man it's friday, forgive the long winded, i'm bored out of my mind stuck in my office post

Quan..I was just joking no game should ever have that effect on people, at least hope not... Well maybe Eversmack 2 though i never understood how people got so caught up with the first one.

A good night out with my wife is always better than any gaming experience

Is the Hype gone on what could be the greatest PC game ever made???

LOL! Looking at the amount of pre-orders & the commercials that say the most anticipated game ever.

I doubt the hype is gone.... it's the calm before the storm. Once that game comes out guys are gonna dispear until x-mas. Wives & girlfriends will walk out ....

Also, I got tired of the same tracks over and over.

Same here. Why can't they just include the entire track selection from the previous versions plus some new ones? I played the first two almost every day for a few years but now I wonít touch any NFS games unless they include good tracks & good physics. I know most people would disagree but I prefer the segmented races they had in the first nfs. I like doing laps but not with these new tracks, it's like they only have 4 or 5 tracks.



I imagine when they say 5 neighborhoods it means the game will have 5 tracks but they will interconnect them to give the illusion of having more tracks....Well that does not work.

When EA makes a game they dig into their game knowledge base & use previous games as bleu prints. So don't expect things to change soon even with new staff, they all use the same base to create their games depending on the genre.

Put all the old maps or don't release it at all. My force feedback steering wheel is gathering dust now. Maybe that FIA game might give a reason not to sell my wheel.

IF not, I guess Iíll have to learn to love Rally games.

Oh man the Karate game with 2 sticks!!! That game was incredible for it's time. I remember sneeking into the basement of a night club just to play that game after the local arcade closed got shut down. Well until my friends mom caught us.

Gaming sure has changed ...went from a vic20 & gorf when i got into gaming & now we play on 2 gigahertz plus machines with crazy video cards.

I always preferred spending my quarters on "Joust"


Same here! My brother finished that one and the space one back in the days, he even finised the PC version that came out in the late 80s. After palying titles like Joust, Defender, Zaxxon it wa almost impossible for me to get into dragon's lair.


Do you guys remember Karateka .. the karate side scroller game ... at the end you save the girl & if you where still in attack mode she kicked you and you died!!!! LOL after spending an hour getting to the end getting beat like that almost made me throw my apple 2c out the window!

Off topic:

Does anyone know the name of the utility that kind of looks like ICQ but is used to to keep a buddy list for gamers, you can follow your friends to a server etc... I think it's called fire something not sure.

I've seen articles on it on this site but i just can't remember the name.

I grew up in a small town in atlantic canada in the 80s... back then we had at least a douzen stores to chose from to buy clothes. Now in 2004 there is only 2 stores. This change happened in the span of a year. My father who just retired this past summer..told me "now that this big chains is here there is only one store in town where you can buy socks " All the familly stores are gone ....in other words if you want to work in my home town now, you either work at the Hospital, school, or that big retail chain.


This guy says Wal MArt is a good thing, but he will be the first one to complain about homeless jobless people asking him for change when he walks down the street. Kind of like the people who cry year after year for tax cuts and complain about youth crime... but they do not want to pay for after school programs or any type of program that would take kids of the street. It's taxes that finance all those programs & cops.

It's basically pointless to debate something like this with someone who has a limited understanding of free market economics & finances.



Demand determines what stores offer. If Wal-Mart does not offer what comsumers want, it will either change to start offering it or consumers will go elsewhere.

That is exactly the problem, there is no elswhere! Everyone else shuts down. Time to check out the reality on the groud & stop watching Lou Dobbs money line. A nation can not survive buy just having larger chains, it needs small & medium size companies to keep the economy rolling.


Small firms:


Represent more than 99.7 percent of all employers.


Employ more than half of all private sector employees.


Pay 44.5 percent of total U.S. private payroll.


Generate 60 to 80 percent of net new jobs annually.


Create more than 50 percent of nonfarm private gross domestic product (GDP).


Supplied 22.8 percent of the total value of federal prime contracts (about $50 billion) in FY 2001.


Produce 13 to 14 times more patents per employee than large patenting firms. These patents are twice as likely as large firm patents to be among the one percent most cited.


Are employers of 39 percent of high tech workers (such as scientists, engineers, and computer workers).


Are 53 percent home-based and 3 percent franchises.


Made up 97 percent of all identified exporters and produced 29 percent of the known export value in FY 2001.

As evident by the moronic comments in this thread, many Americans today aren't willing to even inconvenience themselves, let alone make a personal sacrifice, for the protection or liberation of anyone else.

It's understandable considering that that the gov. does not care about protecting or liberating anyone. You just need to flash some cash and democracy & freedom don't mean a thing. China used to be the big bad evil enemy... Remember the jet slamming into a US recon plane et US soldiers being held in china?! How about the Tianan'men Square masacre? Now that China has opened it's markets to US investements no one cares about human rights violations in china. China has become the new eldorado! ( what % of stuff sold in wal maret is made in china?)

After Aristide was kicked out od Haiti the US said they would not recognaize a gouvernement that took power by force during a coup.... Well these same people have no problem recognizing the leader of Pakistan who took power in that fashion.

I could stay here for hours and post exemples of all the inconsistencies that make people outside the US wonder about the sanity of the people running the white house.

With those kinds of inconcistencies between what they say and what they do what do you expect.... You can't seriously expect people to put their life on the line for a gov. that lies throught it teeth every chance it gets.

The sad thing in all this, is that it's the American people who pay the price. The people are in the US are honorable hard working people. The gov. manipulates less educated or those who do not have access to info. to the point that politics has become a religion & people stop analysing the facts & just regurgitates party dogma. Kind of like those people who walked arround with posters saying "God laughs when fags die" after some kid got killed not realizing that they had crossed the line & became like the Taliban.

Anyways, I feel bad about the elections results... it's hard to watch such a great country fall apart.

Clue in bud!!! ...... Everyone has to love NIN inch nails & stuff or they are losers ?!?!?!?!?!

Must every classic rock riff/song be remade into a rap song?


Good to see that people here are as oppened minded as an ALqueda sleeper lol!!!

Half these guys walk arround talking about how great the 60s where how good the music was but they forget that in those days people tried to be oppen minded and they surely would not say BS like we see posted in here!


I have to stop trying to educate the youth and the bitter little people....
Anyways time dust the vic 20 and get back to the basics lol!!!

21. Re: sigh...Nvidia drivers too? Oct 25, 2004, 17:26 4D-Boxing
 
Weird with an x800xt on an intel 875 chipset and never had problems with games. I played bf:v, bf1942 DC, ut:2k4, far cry, doom3, tribes vengeance and a couple of car racing demos not a single issue. Had the performace hit at first on doom3 but the ferformance has gone up considerably with each driver release.

Not to say that your problems do not exist!
Even when i had my 9700pro i never had the problems i kept reading about. Sometimes i wonder if it's configuration probs or if I just tweak and OC so damn much i solve issues without realizing it. You even see daily reviews of video cards fro various sites and they do not seem to have so many issues.

No matter what the reason is, it's not good for ati that's for sure. Either Nvidia cards are easier to get working right or ATI needs help with their drivers.
