Any diluted fanboys still in denial and defending flagship?

Yeah, some guy named Junkonpunk is.

And a couple of the community sites are still thinking they can continue on after the game is gone.

Haha, all the flagshipped people are making posts in the official forums to get HGL refugees over to their forum, since getting your forum account banned is meaningless now anyways.

So, we did not get a founder item
Well, as expected we never got it.

I wonder what it would have been if it ever got into the game.

Anyone that knows that are still here?

News Comments > MMO KOTOR Confirmed?
6. Re: Watch out WoW Jul 17, 2008, 16:52 MMORPGHoD
 
or rather, KOTOR becoming another SWG

That's what I mean. They should be more concerned with being successful at all instead of gunning for the top spot. Do I expect to watch this MMOG catch WoW in subscribers or do I expect this IP to get butchered again and the watch MMOG fail? With EA involved, the later is more likely.

For comparison purposes, a configured Dell would be around $500 for:

Dell Inspiron 530
  • Intel® Pentium® Conroe Dual Core Processor E2200 (1MB, 2.2GHz)

  • 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz- 2DIMMs

  • ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO 256MB

  • 250GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cache™

  • Integrated audio


  • It'd be another $190 for a 19" LCD.


    edit: basically, what nin posted. For that price range try to shoot for those specs and if you keep an eye out for Dell coupon codes you might even find something better.

    What resolution are these XBL movies being displayed at? I'm assuming it'll be of the same quality as a BR movie.

    To be honest, even though JC has become less of a PC gaming proponent in recent years, his comments are the only thing of substance that I take away after viewing these E3 stories. Everything else is a pile of useless crap I could not care less about.

    4. Re: When... Jul 16, 2008, 11:19 MMORPGHoD
     
    When... did giving information to end users, the people you want to buy your product, become such a terrible thing?

    When the people in charge of PR start thinking too hard about exact timing of information releases or play turf wars and argue over who gets to be the one to tell people.

    You'd think that MS PR people would be half decent at their job. I mean, they must make a decent buck, but they certainly suck when it comes to gaming PR. This just reminds me of how lame they've been with their PR campaign to save PC gaming.

    News Comments > Far Cry 2 Movie
    8. Re: No subject Jul 16, 2008, 09:03 MMORPGHoD
     
    Why is this game called Far Cry 2, when in fact its developed by a completely different company and has no relation to the story of Far Cry??

    Cuz it'll sell more copies due to name recognition.

    Anyway I have to say that the Crytek2 engine is underoptimized, runs like a hog on top end systems and in general is a piece of shit.

    .. and it has no relation to FC2 either. The Dunia engine is using only 2-3% of the original CryEngine code.

    Even if you aren't being billed for it, I can't imagine these servers staying up much longer. I suppose subscribers who were trying to cancel their sub will be happier now. Even those who bought the game and never paid for a sub are about to end up with a coaster.

    Check out the nuvi:

    The 350 has decent ratings for around $200 or the 660 for $330 on amazon.

    8. Re: DirectX 11 Jul 13, 2008, 21:20 MMORPGHoD
     
    DX10 was failure for a few reasons. Tying it to Vista (and its success/failure) was one of them. Another reason is DX10 isn't anything special from a gamer's point of view, as the differences actually seen vs DX9 are unremarkable. The changes/improvements are mostly developer side and that did not translate to more DX10 games. Why make a DX10 game when most users are still at XP w/ DX9 video cards and you get so few bells/whistles. Besides, if consoles are your target audience and PC is an afterthought, DX10 is not a priority anyways.

    In any case, even if you don't agree with me, numbers do not lie. From the steam hardware surey stats:

    Windows XP 1,435,379 80.77 %
    Windows Vista 267,911 15.08 %


    The difference is huge. Freaking huge, a year and a half later. No one cares about Vista. OK, a few people do and even fewer gamers use it. Maybe you can say the steam stats don't reflect PC gamers in general. If you can a better source for this information, let me know. I trust this more than stats MS would provide.

    I'm still waiting for 4GB myself and still using XP on my gaming machine (using 2GB). When are 4GB game machines going to be needed? Probably not until the next generation of consoles...
