What was that space game that was free with the ships? Was an MMO space game.....some of the screen look similar....

I think you may be thinking of Black Prophecy?

No the Origin classic Moebius?

Negative, but I had to go look that up on Mobygames as I remembered it on my Atari ST. I also recall it being not all that impressive, even to my younger self. Besides, isn't Greg Malone dead?

Good luck with that.

Skyrim is a damn hard immersive experience to beat with (roughly) the same settings.

No sir, I don't like it.

Well, your dislike to like ratio is about 10 to 1...




Let's be fair. If it came with a belt that had an onion attached to it, Cutter would be all over it like white and rice.

Anyone think that it might be something like peripherals and not a console?

They could also be launching their own custom PC business. There are a lot of things you can employ an Electrical Engineer for that doesn't automatically equate to "ZOMGWTFBBQ! CONSOLE?! WHARGBBLNERDRAGEFACE!"

I need to hurry to kill the process so that it doesn't eventually bluescreen if I let it go.

Stop the system from restarting when it blue screens, if you haven't done so already. What is Windows reporting as the cause of the blue screen? A specific file or something like IO_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL?

Wish I knew what it was.

The shitty ATi card you paid for. I'm honestly not trolling you or jerking off in random fanboyism. Every ATi product I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with, whether that be discrete cards or laptop chipsets or their more recent integrated video, has been a total fucking nightmare where shit would randomly crash for no apparent reason.

We'd re-image the exact same machine (sans video drivers of course), drop in an Nvidia card, install the drivers...and not have any problem whatsoever.

I'm really sorry this is happening to you. Playing LoG has brought back many happy memories of playing Dungeon Master on my Atari ST and, later, the Eye of the Beholder series.

Is it at all possible to drop in an Nvidia test card and see if the problem continues?

Or the same old rinse-repeat formula:

Pick:
Random minority
Bottom dwelling loser
All of the above

Start at:
Near homeless

Tell story of:
Revenge/vendetta

Fill with:
Cliched and/or stereotypical NPCs

Stop game when:
Hackneyed, obvious ending that was seen from the very start of the game is cued.


To make sequel:
See above.

Speaking of space games. Anyone into the X series? When is Rebirth coming out. Think I'm going to give it a whirl.

Indeed. I play it regularly although X is the kind of game that, after a while, becomes a second job.

...a bit of grinding...

"A bit" is a charitable and extremely misleading statement. It has a great deal of grinding in it. Long, slow, tedious grinding. It is an Asian MMO down to its roots.

What a stupid article. Pure troll.

No, Cutter's right. It is 100% pure troll for clicks. The author's arguments present themselves as fact, almost fait accompli. No business that I have ever been in, or dealt with, has any interest in moving their data to the magic "cloud" of a third party provider. Even a local cloud isn't much of a temptation.

It's too much a nascent technology for established businesses to buy in to and even your average consumer got a nasty bite in the ass when Kodak told them that all the photos they were storing were going to magically go away unless they either had local copies or downloaded them to make local copies. That's just one in a long line of bitter experiences for people.

People who think that the next three generations of tablets are going to replace PCs are the same sort of people who though 30 pound "laptops" were going to revolutionize and replace the PC in the 80s...and the PC kept growing.

Further, mainframes didn't "die". They evolved in to the blade racks we have today. Anyone who can't see that is probably clueless.

Meh, fuck it. I'm going to bed.

TL; DR version: Article is full of shit. People who buy in to that are full of shit, blinded by trying too hard to be trendy hipster douchebags.

I'll only buy this if I can create the 4th Reich and realize our Fuhrer's dream of a perfectly designed Berlin!!!

You know, an alternate history game like that would be really cool.

If a call comes in and I know it's urgent I'll walk outside and take it.

You are part of, perhaps, 10% whom do that. The other 90% sit their asses right there and try to resolve the conflicts in the world.

Cell phones have been around forever now - but as soon as stuff like the "Occupy Wall St." thing pops up the government suddenly gets interested in being able to jam them.

Hmm..

No surprises there. I like how "violent flash mobs" and terrorism (bomb detonation) are listed as reasons.

And yet "Annoying, self-important douchebags in move theatres and checkout lanes" aren't.
