So Windows 8.1 now comes with folks a bit more used to the new interface and it has improvements that address many of the things which really irritated a lot of users.

Not according to what I'm reading, Mr. Shill. I'm reading that 8.1 regresses more than it improves and that MS still isn't listening to the consumer, but is instead forcing a dumbed-down UI that we don't want on our PC's.


It does let you boot right to the desktop but they also have done some things that don't make any sense like removing scheduling from Windows Backup - at least that's what I read from the preview version of 8.1

If you install StartIsBack you can turn off annoying charm pop-up locations like upper right corner, but you'll still need to reassign your favorite programs to open files or you'll click on an image and end up in "Metro" for example. It doesn't take that much to turn it into Windows 7.5 and ignore all the junk Microsoft added including the start screen.

Sorry DangerDog, but why should I or anyone for that matter have to install a third party app to make Windows perform and act like windows? We shouldn't!

The simple fact is, M$ keep screwing over the PC and continues to not listen to the concerns of the consumer. This is what is getting them in to trouble and why many are so opposed to using Windows 8.

Its never going on my pc as long as its in the shitty state its in now.

HL1 was ground breaking, 2 was a solid game but what most everyone was doing. And unless 3 has something game-changing, it's just going to be more of the same, but in the HL universe.

That's just fine with me - I'll buy HL3 just because I want to see how the story ends.

I want to see how it ends to, but there are way too many gaps in the story that I would like to see closed. Like how did they go from fighting the first invasion to what seems like a second invasion that they are now allied with those same Aliens who first invaded. Totally baffling!

It amazes me that a company like Valve can squander their flagship title that made them into what they are today. I think their heads are clouded up with Steam.

I can't remember where I read it but apparently Valve makes more off DOTA 2 in like a month than they ever made off their other games. Much as I also want Half-Life 3, I think they know where their bread is buttered now. And this doesn't even count what they make from Steam.


Well, that may be true, but still Half Life made them what they are today. And to answer the other guys comment about the staleness of FPS shooters. To me, that statement would be like making only the first two Lords of the Rings movies then telling us to come back 10 years from now and maybe we will make the third part. Kind of lame if you ask me if thatís their take.

Wow, that escalated quickly. The game is terrible. Glad you liked it, no reason to attack me for not liking it.

I believe that comment ended with a question and not an accusation. Big difference!!

The Skill tree was upgraded adding new skills, there are now Quick Kills, and the mouse now wheels through the weapons. That to me was a big enchantment over having to radial wheel to change a weapon out. The game plays very smoothly. We had no bugs, crashes or any issues that prevented us from completing the game.

And Cutter youíre a fine one to talk about Trolls when in fact you do quite a bit yourself.

Iím not fighting over anything; I just stated an obvious fact. Now you guys are trying to say that longevity of a game is not worth the price tag. I find that comment amusing when Iíve read here several hundred times over from many that a lengthy game is what people determine as cost worthy.

But you are now saying the length of a game is not in terms of what you are paying for. I think sometimes many of you here are in fact cheap and feel that everything should be either free or 5 dollars. That to me pretty well puts the cheap tag over your head. I found the add-on to be much more fun and enjoyable then the original.

I beg to differ, 60 dollars is expensive in terms of buying a game that ONLY last 4 to 5 hours. When compared to this game when you can get well over 30 hours of game play. You must be cheap Verno!

Gameplay isn't worth anything when it isn't fun and stop being a little twerp.

Thats your opinion, maybe find some friends to play it with and it wont be so bad.

$14 is expensive if you don't like the gameplay. Free weekend is the best time to make that determination though.

Durability is not an issue, there are work station all over the place to repair and upgrade.

Bitch. Low-life individuals like this one aren't exactly helping the situation of "gender equality" in the industry. Guys don't cry sexual harassment when they get their feelings hurt and quit in a huff...

You said it dude, this is a case where she got fired and decided to lash out crying sexual harassment because she's a women and thinks that she can get away with it. Its a typical case of cry rape and prove you didn't do it when its supposed to be innocent until proven.

I'm in no way stereotyping all women like this, but there are those who do.

I'm totally ok with that as long as the PC version is better this time around.

Iím not as forgiving when it comes to badly ported games. The first one was very bad, I tried to play it, but the controls drove me crazy.

I never did try the patch that came out that supposedly fixed the controls. But I am tired of the pc taking a back seat to console too.

I even kind of liked Daikatana, but I have a soft spot for games that are screwed up while doing interesting things (my favorite is Trespasser). What Daikatana tried to do with the AI companions was interesting. It was terribly executed, but it was an ambitious idea and interesting, and better implementations of the same idea have proven fun to play (cf. Alyx in Half-Life), so it was a valid direction to go in.

He failed, and he failed in ways that would have been avoidable with less hubris, but the ego also did make him focus on game design features rather than business plans. It's a better failure than making something calculated, bland and shitty.

Iím kind of like you, I didnít mind Daikatana at all, it was fun playing Coop. I think what really killed this game was the bold statement he made about making us his bitch. That really set people off and I personally think people were at that point just out to disprove him by calling the game crap. It was far from crap it had some enjoyable moments.

This is funny, John used to be married to some small European girl from Romania. Now heís married to Brenda? When did this happen?

Wasnít Brenda also working at Sir Tech long ago?

And wasnít she and John also a part of a failed Kickstarter attempt at making Wizardry again or something like that?

Thanks for posting the news about Eye of the Beholder II Blues!

Thanks from me, too! The module is actually for NWN 1 (even though it is on the NWN2 Vault) with both expansions or the Diamond version, which is available on GoG.com.

Actually, the NWVault is a combination of both games. Itís a hosting site that originally started out as NWN 1 Then migrated up to NWN 2. So itís not just an exclusive NWN 2 site for mods.
