the trailer makes it look like the entire game was made by a single guy who learned 3D programming a few years ago.

Going OK with nvidia on Mint, but wonder how ATI/AMD is nowadays on linux.

News Comments > DOOM 3 BFG Edition Patch and GPL Source Code

I have the original on the shelf collecting dust but unfinished... barely unplayed

when someone says "this game is barely played", doesn't it mean that he does not usually play it? and wouldn't then "this game is barely unplayed" mean that he can't stop playing it?

in that case, yes, it should be worth stopping the game just enough to patch it.

That FIFA 13 review was actually a review of other indie random games.

i keep hearing people saying that caffeine is addictive so thats why they are trying to get rid of it; but is there really any ill effects with caffeine directly (not sugar) outside addiction? never mind what happens if you dont have coffee after being addicted, whats really wrong with a mug a day?

(btw: Hoop's lessened knee & elbow pain almost certainly had nothing to do with the caffeine cut; it would have gone away even if he had tea/coffee; 6 months is enough time for these sort of things to heal itself).

thanks for the information Verno & Bucky, and my apologies to Sepharo

the reviews for the Sennheiser HD595 seem very good, but it seems discontinued in favour of the HD598 which is even slightly better. the ATH-AD700 seems great too; but the impression I got from reviews was that the hd59x had better bass. i think i might go for the hd598.

the Antlion Modmic is important too; I am using a yum cha desk microphone and it does get quite in the way and has below average quality.

however, i am not sure about the sound card and whether it'd be worth it. i can definitely hear a vast difference between my onboard chipset & my creative live 5.1!, but wondering if getting a pricier card would make too much of a difference. i have a dual boot too; so linux compatibility is an extra complication.

i just discovered this "closed headphone" vs "open headphone" thing. i am reading that open headphones have better "soundstage" than closed ones (leaking sound is not a problem), but the bass is potentially less? did you notice less powerful bass in your HD-555 compared to HD-280? i am not expecting earth shattering bass, but i wouldn't want it less than my existing headphones.

i had my audio technica headphones since 2006; since I am very careful at handling my headpones and never move them away from my table. so i am thinking of splurging on the Sennheiser HD598 since it looks like it might last for quite some time, what do you think?

i need to get some good headphones; both for gaming & general purpose use. it seems most audio-heads recommend i stay away from "gaming" headphones as the price is high for medium quality; but i wanted opinions here.

(i currently have a fairly cheap Audio-Technica ATH M20 and an external mic)

any recommendations? what do you guys use? i can go as high as $200.

also, i currently have a creative live 5.1! pci card; some people say i should upgrade my sound card too; but others say the difference is mostly the placebo effect and the cost is better off spend on better headphones. any thoughts?

"It didn't look THAT stellar"? this video is of the doom 3 alpha leaked in 2002, what other games in 2002 looked half as good?

it feels like the first Skyrim review on bluesnews; i was just yesterday wondering why there were no skyrim reviews posted.

i haven't played the elder scrolls 4: oblivion. is it worth playing that first, or is it so similar that its best to jump to skyrim?

it's good, but you should add your own screenshots. and maybe rename it to "battlefield 3 multiplayer review"

1. Seagate Barracuda 3TB Review; A 1TB Hard Drive Nov 1, 2011, 15:19 rocketpcguy
 
when you put "Seagate Barracuda 3TB Review; A 1TB Hard Drive"; i thought they started making disks like tapes and give hardware compression to make the claim that 1TB = 3TB.
it's actually 1TB / Platter.

UT3 is lots of fun (esp. warfare); looks great and scales well on different hardware. how come very few play it?
