30. Audio Stuff! Aug 30, 2015, 17:50 Ant
 
I still have my Audigy 2ZS, but I never put back since all my PCI slots were filled with HDTV tuner cards and one died last year. I should one day since onboard sound sucks (less bass too!).

I still have my Logitch Z-2300 2.1 speakers set after my awesome (better IMO) Klipsch ProMedia v2-400 started making horrible noises.

Everyone has roaches. People who think they don't have roaches are just living in denial.
What about ants? Argentine worker ants invaded my nest recently.

According to Steam, I played its sequel for about three hours. If I am going to check it out again later if I have time, then what parts should I do to impress me?

Has it changed much since its free weekend on 3/23/2014?

I've played it a lot the last few months. There's a ton of new heists. Cool thing about them is anyone can join even if you dont have the DLC's. It just takes the DLC to start host your own game. I recommend getting the base game then all the weapon DLC's, then your pretty much set.
Oh cool. I wasn't that impressed with the first and second back then. I hope this updated sequel is better.

Great games. Awful voiceovers. Don't even think about playing without others.
Voiceovers weren't that bad!

NOOOOOOooooo!!

This is terrible news. I use my Macbook for side projects and other work when I'm out and about, as a way of staying away from games on my desktop at home. It's going to take a lot of will power to not install this on my laptop...

Terraria, how dare you endanger my productivity like this.
Maybe it will be a crappy port?

I ain't touching this one and W8. I'll stick with unsupported XP SP3, W7 SP1, Linux/Debian (old)stable, Mac OS X, etc. Even Vista SP2 was decent.

DOH! Remember when FOX wasn't happy with that UCLA guy's Aliens TC mod for DOOM?

That brings back memories.

Don't know how rose-tinted they are but that Aliens mod was the scariest thing I've ever played!

Check those corners!

I remember it being pretty tense.
It was tense enough back then! This was before we had AvP games!

Did anyone play that short lived online Aliens game for DOS? If so, then did it really suck? It looked rad(ical).

In the 90s I allegedly made a AOHELL-style hack for DWANGO service which let you play Doom-engine games indefinitely for free.

Then I allegedly got served with a cease-and-desist letter because I allegedly was a stupid teenager who put his actual name into the program.

Eh, what is this nonsense. I played DOOM multiplayer back in the mid 90s. Over a serial port, then a dialup modem, and finally a LAN. Worked great.


Ahhh, classic Doom multiplayer. I remember playing that on a Ring network, then it was a big deal when we switched it to ethernet!

Also Neon green Doom marine is the best.
I remember playing on SirDOOM with dial-up modems on a local BBS. Oh, someone made a parallel cable multiplayer that actually worked when I tried it in college.

This is the 3rd or 4th change to EA accounts. We had the Gun Club, Battlefield veterans, all sorts of stuff. Something tells me they are so large, they don't even know seperate teams are working n this stuff and changing it until it is to late. Some young kid in a suit says in some meeting (a kid who has never used the product - speaking to old suits who have never played the games) 'we should rebrand it". So, since that sounds cool, is a buzz word, and he is young, lets do it!

Mine started as a NFS account, then became an EA Download Manager account, then an Origin account, and now apparently an EA account.

Beam me up, Scotty.

(Mind you, that's been over the span of... eleven years? Since just before the release of NFS Carbon?)
That sounds about right. I think mine started with C&C games?
