News Comments > Sweeney: PCs Good for Anything... But Games
24. No subject Mar 11, 2008, 02:15 rocketpcguy
 
Sweeney: I really don't know why they kept the 32-bit version of Vista. I was surprised when they decided to keep the 32-bit version, I expected that they would push the 64-bit version exclusively. It would have been the perfect time for that.

with xp being discontinued, people would be FORCED to buy newer processors if they want to use windows? even if they have a 3.6GHz P4. think people will like that? think microsoft will like that? does he have any business sense whatsoever?


Let's be clear with it. The switch to exclusively 64-bit would clean up all the legacy viruses and spyware programs that have been plaguing us for years.

so spyware programs will suddenly stop working if it's on 64-bit? but anything that doesn't spy on users will continue to function magically?

so they don't trust the ESRB? the site (http://whattheyplay.com) said that:
Call of Duty 4 is recommended for ages 13 and up
Crysis is okay for 11 year olds and up
The Sims Bon Voyage only for 13 and up
Quake 4 for 10 and up.

Jesus Christ, will this fucking franchise just die and go away please!?

the sims probably made more money than Deus Ex, or Bioshock, or Crysis, or Portal. as long as it makes more money, it will prosper better than other games.

is worth getting a hd-dvd add-on for $49 instead of a game? i don't think so, they should make it $15.

Can someone delete my mirror posts? I don't know what happened, I pressed it once and it hanged for about 5 minutes before posting multiple times...

how about editing the posts to have 5 different interesting things to say?

is there an article that talks about the technical aspects of the youtube outage? is it really all that easy to remove a site from international access? or re-route it to a malicious one?

The game's single-player campaign also didn't quite pan out to expectations, said Morris. As with character customization, Epic felt its campaign was coarse in comparison, with Morris saying, "It was good, but it wasn't BioShock."
where they aiming for a bioshock like experience when they started developing that crap single player campaign?

I sat in on a small private demo at last year's GDC. It was very impressive. I don't see it replacing standard controllers anytime soon, but it could definitely enhance our gaming experience.

surely you would have more to say about this Quaternion. how did it feel like?

3. The 15 Most Annoying Video Game Char... Feb 20, 2008, 04:17 rocketpcguy
 
Baby Mario from Yoshi's Island
Why he annoyed us:
Did you know that human beings are biologically programmed to find a baby's crying unpleasant? If you answered 'yes', congratulations, you're smarter than Nintendo.

Every time Baby Mario is separated from Yoshi, he bawls his lungs out, releasing one of the most ear-piercing sound effects in video game history. While the relentless crying does prompt the player to urgently recover Baby Mario, it comes at a great price: their sanity.

which makes eating baby mario more satisfying:

1. So where's the open source project? Open source hacks generally don't have the talent to pull of this kind of project.
http://www.tokamakphysics.com/intro.htm
http://www.ode.org/
(example of ODE: http://www.youtube.com/v/QSgR0s7zqFo )
sure, not nearly as great as PhysX, but the above projects do not have access to a dedicated physics card.

3d aside, theyve even made an open source flash physics engine, check out the beta demo here:

What a terrible comparison. Far Cry came out for the PC in 2004. Far Cry Instincts came out for the 360 in 2006.

yes, i know. i just wanted to highlight the quality of the rendering of an xbox 360 by itself. as a comparison, its stupid, but i couldn't find a high quality video of the xbox game easily.

So, if you want to upgrade to a mid level system, you can buy a Core 2 Duo Processor, ECS motherboard that supports it, and 2 gigs of memory, all for $300.

do you really think an average person on the street will bother to build his own system from parts? if you can show me a gaming PC system with xbox 360 quality graphics, without a monitor, for $350 dollars, then i'll change my opinion.
look at the quality of rendering of an xbox:
http://xboxmovies.teamxbox.com/xbox-360/2898/Far-Cry-Instincts-PREDATOR-Xbox-360-vs-PC-Water-Comparison/
and bioshock for the pc (dx9 at high)and xbox 360 look just the same.

16. gfx card prices Feb 13, 2008, 01:10 rocketpcguy
 
if they just made a 8800GT class graphics card $100, PC gaming would get saved.

the issue is, who, other than hardcore gamers in this forum, would want to spend $1000 on a PC when you can spend less than half of that to get a decent console? once all console games support keyboards and mice that connect to the USB ports on those consoles, there will be little hope left for the PC.

So what did people do? They did what he said, they made characters with names like LIILILILILILI, so you fought 50 people with almost an identical name, making it impossible to target anyone to focus fire.
won't it be better if they called themselves LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIL?
