I dunno man, I tried the demo and it reminded me of Neuro Hunter. That's not a good thing.

3. Re: Cool Mar 31, 2007, 04:41 Awesome Spume
 
Much like RTW the out-of-the-box game was a bit undemanding so I installed a mod, hoping it would do to Medieval what Total Realism did to Rome. Within a few years I was excommunicated and spent the next 130 years fighting off every other motherfucker on the map, even after I'd been pardoned by a dozen different popes. I was playing Spain and the Scots and Poles would regularly boat in raiding parties to have a crack at me. (I checked to see what the mod was - Stainless Steel. But I'm still waiting for Rome Total Realism 7 mind you...)

Looking forward to an expanded UK campaign although the timeframe probably puts it prior to the big Scottish immigration to Ulster so I'll have to choose between playing Scotland (where my people are from) or Ireland (where I increasingly identify with).

Register on the forums and you play for free. Not a bad sampler until LOTRO comes out.

I joined AC2 around launch time in Europe and I quite enjoyed it. I quit because it was actually too easy and always meant to go back when they balanced it. Meh. Played AC about a year before that and though it wasn't totally my cup of tea it had so much depth you couldn't help but be engaged. It was a little disconcerting to be told as a new character that I had ultimately gimped myself and would never be able to reach the top levels. But they were right.

A $200 for a life sub to a LOTR game seems like a no-brainer.

EDIT - though it looks like it's a bargain I won't be able to avail myself of as the offer is probably limited to the US. Codemasters are handling the game in Europe. Nuff said.

EDIT2 - nope, me full of shit as usual. Codemasters are offering a lifetime sub for a ton (wun hunnred quid!). Pfft. Grabbing that.

13. Re: wow Mar 23, 2007, 16:23 Awesome Spume
 
I'm using Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul, Francesco's mod, Martigen's Monster Mod (those three are collectively known as FranOOOMMM!

I still put in half a dozen hours a week using OOO. When I tire of my vampire I'll probably start another game using the full on FranOOOMMM but with a few more quest mods added to keep it fresh. I never understood the hatred for Oblivion. Morrowind had more to do out of the box but the combat and the NPCs were dire. I still haven't finished MW and I doubt I ever will because I couldn't go back to MW combat.

Is this some sort of unpaid ad for the Yamaha? Unlikely I know because an ad usually requires endorsement from someone who isn't a huge dick. I said ISN'T...

And?

In five years we'll be looking at the successor to Vista except this time round there will be a billion old PCs running Vista and the next OS with everything to prove. When you make billions a year off software at 80% profit you don't need an instant success.

And Ron Jeremy is okay.

After reading that link I was thinking that reads trouble for the MMO. More so saying "Please come back as we have no player base left and we might have to shut down".

If they move to the GW model then I might try it again.

6. Re: Blu- Ray Mar 16, 2007, 18:13 Awesome Spume
 
More widely available? Projected sales numbers for 2007 are 1.25 million HD-DVD players and 6.75 million Blu-ray players. Disc sales are currently 2-1 in favor of Blu-ray. It looks like HD-DVD is going to get stomped.

A lot of those BR players are PS3s. A substantially cheaper HD-DVD drive for the PC could swallow that - say something around $200 like the 360 addon. Or less.

how do i get that script to work?

Install enahs Greasemonkey script then paste xxBatmanxx's name over dsmart. Should work a treat.

Cowell IS bigger than Springsteen RIGHT NOW. Much much bigger. Springsteen turned himself into a joke years ago and I say this as a former fan. Or a current fan of his former work.

I've no idea how big Springsteen still is in the US but aside from Streets of Philadelphia and Born in the USA how many hits can a random person in the street worldwide over 30 name? Under 30 and I doubt they'd know the two I mentioned.

Cowell has a top show in the US and the UK so ironically Springsteen is probably better known in Iran than Cowell is. Is that what you wanted?

EDIT: oh and I like the UFC but Pride FC is better.

1. David Perry Mar 16, 2007, 17:38 Awesome Spume
 
I wikipedied Dave Perry and got reminded of a Gamesmaster regular from back in the day. Prat.

Anyway. David Perry is a local boy so I don't care how much you Matrix this and Matrix that, he's okay by me. I say EWJ, MDK, Messiah (yes!) and Sacrifice mean he has earned himself a pass now and again. In fact if I have one complaint about him it's that nowadays he sounds... American.

1. 12 ways... Mar 16, 2007, 17:27 Awesome Spume
 
Half those ideas involve ripping off music companies. Just saying.

I saw an AOL commercial recently. On a broadcast of Django I PVR'd around Xmas time. That said suchandsuch a subscription would let you download all the music you could want from the internet.

Mixed signals.

Same way my ISP hosts a.b.m.divx without a trace of irony while posting messages on their homepage about the evils of stealing shit off the internet.

We don't have a Constitution in the UK so this is more likely incompetence than freedom of speech.

I personally stay away from Myspace. It's a cool idea, but it festers with hackers, and viri.

And really really shitty webpages.

The RIAA is evil even if stealing music is wrong. It would be like a distributor going after game pirates regardless of the interests of the developers. It alienates your target audience.

And the itunes comparison is out because for 99c I can get a song I'll want to hear again and again for hours of accumulated listening. Show me the 99c game store?

I believe Riley was sarcastically alluding to the comments made by Todd Hollenshead about the effect of software piracy on PC gaming.

A flawed argument though as there's no comparison between the budgets for an id game and a SnM game.
