1. Black screen of darkness to haunt... Sep 11, 2007, 14:04 rocketpcguy
 
In an e-mail to a large Windows Vista distributor titled "Pirated Vista -- A darkness descends!" -- a local Microsoft representative made it quite clear what Vista pirates can expect to happen to their unlicensed installations.

that article is SO naive!! they've already bypassed the piracy check, and will continue doing do. it

look at the quality of the floor and the right building:

it looks like a 2005 PC release game. why is that particular shot so completely different from the rest?

1. Google Plans to Put Video Ads Into... Sep 9, 2007, 02:24 rocketpcguy
 
if this is true, its crazy. the reason i used to go to google instead of others is that other search engines used to be flashy and include images and stuff. if google starts putting flash video ads, i'm outta here.
if it happends, are there any other search sites worth actually using?

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

100. Re: So this is the Unreal3 engine? Aug 21, 2007, 03:22 rocketpcguy
 
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?

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.

14. Re: He's right Jul 31, 2007, 10:12 rocketpcguy
 
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.
