If your new Pavlovian squirrel strategy doesn't work out, I wonder if you could just throw in the towel and put up feeders for both the birds and the squirrels. Make something extra tasty for the squirrels and perhaps they'll leave the more difficult and less tasty bird feeder alone.

OK, I know it's not Dungeon Keeper (sigh), and I've read some reviews that say it's rather mediocre, but have any other Dungeon Keeper fans played this? Is it worth picking up? I mean the original game, not the DLC.

News Comments > Gaming Mouse Maker Knocks Gaming Mice
9. Re: Gaming Mouse Maker Knocks Gaming Mice Mar 29, 2011, 11:00 Ratty
 
Got a wireless "gaming" mouse with my last computer 6 years ago. What a worthless piece of crap. I dug up an old, wired, non-optical mouse with the rubber ball and have been using it ever since. I'd like to switch to a modern one - it only has two buttons and no scroll wheel and there are a couple of games where that comes in handy. Get this, in Crysis and FarCry you need a mouse wheel to zoom in with the sniper scope. So I continued to use the old fashioned mouse but got out my worthless wireless gaming mouse and set it on the desk. When I needed to zoom I reached over and used the mouse wheel on that. That's pretty lame but it actually worked pretty well. But I swear I can't find a decent mouse that fits in your hand and doesn't weigh a ton and doesn't have a bajillion buttons all along the edges that you constantly keep clicking by accident.

We could seriously use the rain here in the midwest. But then again, it was 36 yesterday and cloudy, making me wonder if we were about to get snowed on again.
I love rain. Just love it. It's kind of calm and peaceful, makes you feel like you're in a little bubble of aloneness. Plus we've had a drought here in California like forever. But I am SICK SICK SICK of the rain. It's rained for the last two weeks, many days literally non stop. I am psychically wishing all of April's showers to you in the midwest.

End of March: All I can think about is the old saying "April showers bring May flowers." Ugh. So it's April that's supposed to be the rainy month?

This game is definitely becoming a wait-and-see affair.
For fuck's sake. What game isn't a wait and see affair anymore? There is no AAA developer that you can trust to make a good PC game. All the old reliables have sold their soul.

SHIT. I just read last night's comments and saw Crysis 2 has no quicksave, just fucking check points? I don't ever play games anymore that don't have quicksave. I only played Far Cry after I learned the console savegame command and even then you had to be careful where you saved because it was unsupported. Check points discourage exploration and creativity. You're less likely to try something new if you're afraid of dying and have to remember exactly where the last check point was.

Must... adapt... to... Firefox 4!1111
No kidding. Just installed it on my brand spanking new Windows 7 system. I'm trying to suppress my natural urge to hate and fear anything new or different. My first instinct is to go out and grab all the addons that make Firefox "classic."

I come here to Blues News for my trustworthy reviews from actual PC players, thank you very much. I hope Blue posts some Crysis 2-related news every day for awhile so people can attach their experiences in the comments. I'm definitely waiting until after the DX 11 patch until I decide whether to buy or not. No, not for DX11 but for any other PC changes they may decide to make.

Had to turn off the trailer. The sound made me puke (sure can't call it music).
Seeing the first TV commercials for Crysis 2 reminded me how good the music in Fallout NV was. Never really thought about it before, but those thoughtful, mournful, electric guitar sounds were so perfect. So does Crysis 2 actually have that same nasty rap music as the commercial?

Well, it's looking like it'll be a no-buy consolized piece of shit. Which is too bad since the last game I bought was Fallout NV last year and the only other game on the horizon I want to play will be DNF and I'm waiting until Bulletstorm is on sale ... I have nothing new to play.

I'll wait to pass final judgment until they release the DX 11 patch. Maybe they'll add more PC improvements then.

Cool with me, as long as it is fun to play I'd be fine if it was built using the Quake III engine.
Well said. It was the obsession with the absolute latest cutting edge tech that killed Daikatana and DNF. If they'd just stuck with the engine they'd started with things may have turned out different.

Had the same problem trying to post a link to The Onion. Says the string is too long even though it should stay hidden in the url tag the board provides. It wasn't that funny anyway so I just gave up. Maybe that's the point.

I knew the deniers would show up. There is a universal scientific consensus that Cap'n Crunch cuts up the roofs of peoples mouths. Any "studies" you see which refute this are paid for by big cereal. You all are just a bunch of anti-science zealots who let your pro-crunch ideology blind you to hard facts.

I heard it's genetic some people hate cilantro. Love it myself but to some people it's bitter and that's cause there's this receptor thing in their tongue that's not like normal people, and it's like in their genes, man, in their genes!
