Never have I seen so many stories about 1 game on bluesnews.

if you count all the sims related news stories about expansion packs, i think you did.

this is not making sense. why are we supporting PC gaming again? how come we're okay with spending thousands of dollars on dual core processors + 2GB of high quality RAM + a $500 graphic card to get a decent framerate when a $350 xbox 360 does the same thing smoothly?

this isn't a real OSX port, right? isn't it just running cedega or something to emulate the games on mac, right?

News Comments > EA versus Wikipedia
19. Re: I don't really get all the hubbub Aug 17, 2007, 02:56 rocketpcguy
 
Wikipedia's reliability is simply zero for any and all official or financial purposes. ZERO. The information is not verified,

several statements are referenced, with the references in the bottom. that makes the reliability for referenced articles a bit more than zero.

this is arguable, but just because an article is edited by one person or one company does not necessarily mean that the reliability is high.

News Comments > Rein on Consoles, DX10
25. Re: Consoles arent cheap Aug 1, 2007, 06:30 rocketpcguy
 
okay, do you play your computer games in a 48" widescreen LCD?

most people have average TVs, and that's good enough for a good gaming experience (the distance of the player and the screen is large) and is bigger than a gaming computer screen. and most people wouldn't spend $500 on a sound system, but if they do, they'd spend the same on a PC speaker set too.

all things considered, consoles ARE cheaper than PCs with the same rendering speed for today.

i hate to admit it, but i do sometimes feel that gaming pcs are bad value for money. for the same rendering speed as a $350 xbox-360, you need to spend over a $1200 for just the pc.
its cheaper to get a low end PC for work and a console for gaming together.

What makes me laugh is that you can do pretty much all the dx10 "extras" in OpenGL on standard XP.

but don't we have to wait for the "Mt Evans" opengl release on the end of this year for that?

2. Ex-Marine Kills Bear, Saves Sons. Jun 23, 2007, 01:04 rocketpcguy
 
animal activist comments in the site:

It's a tragedy that the bear had to die because of the ignorance of the child and his father.

and

And this man should not be praised for killing that bear. His family's ignorance caused the bear to come into their camping area and because the young son then acted stupid and attracted the bears attention. It may be a safe ending for this thoughtless family, but a veyr sad ending for the poor bear.

is the added "dx10 improvements" (no, i did not mix up the dx9 and dx10 screenshots) worth the massive performance loss?

and we've been seeing physics in games for years. painkiller had excellent framerates, i don't see how you're arguing that you need dx10 to handle physics for playable framerates.

DX9 is intentionally made bad. they made it seem as if you can only have physics with Dx10, obviously hl2 and havok proved it wrong. nfs proved you can have motion blur in dx9, while these videos seem to show its impossible. the rain and rain drop effect on the floor wasn't mind blowing, i dont see why dx10 is necessary.
