I haven't noticed better memory usage with FF at all. It's still a pig.

I did a test a while back between FF and IE and IE used so much less memory it wasn't even funny. I miss the old days of FF when it really was fast and light. That was probably, version 1.0 and earlier.

There was some case a while back where the publisher gave their blessing to some fan made project then changed their mind months and months later after all the work had been put in and shut it down.


You're probably thinking of Duke Nukem Reloaded?

I was going to get the 3G version of the Vita, but found out that it's pretty much worthless. You can't download games off it (of course you probably would not want to anyway since ATT's monthly limits SUCK) but more importantly you can not play multiplayer games over it unless it's a turn based thing like chess. Lame. So it's basically only good for web browsing and other minor crap no one cares about.

So I cancelled my 3G preorder and preordered the wifi one. I'll play MP games on my own wifi with my home cable or tethered to my phone or tablet through AndroidTether/MyWi.

I am very much looking forward to the Vita. I just hope there will be other companies make memory cards for it, or at least adapters because Sony's is way over priced. I also preordered a 32GB one but I'm kind of wondering if I should cancel that. $100 is kind of insane for that, yet $/GB it is the best deal and I plan on downloading most of the games so I'll need a lot of space. :/ Bah.

Most people I know can not afford a new game price except every once and a while. I know there are a lot of people like that, especially these days so not being able to play used games will not go over at all.

Even though I can pay full price, most of the time I do not for the fact that I find 90%+ games these days are not worth the asking price. So if they do this, I will not buy the new system, ever. The Alienware X51 looks way more interesting than any new console anyway.

call me when i can do something useful, like buy games and have them added to Steam when I get home...otherwise "chat with steam friends"? yeah, no thanks.

^m^

Reading comprehension fail. You CAN buy games from this app when you're away from the PC. Look at the quote from Gabe.

How would you click on a link on a website on your browser when you have to.. install the APP on your phone to be eligible for the beta at some point?
You click install on the Android marketplace page and it installs to your selected device...does Apple not have this functionality or something?


They do, but it's something in iOS 5 only and has to be enabled. Also the purchase has to be done in iTunes instead of a browser. But iOS 5 does have this feature where if you buy something on one device (PC/Mac/iPhone/iPad/etc) it will automatically download to all your other devices.

This steam app will be perfect for if I'm away for a few days and don't want to miss on a good sale.

I hope this is the year they finally show Doom 4.

For id's sake, I also hope they toss OpenGL for the PC version. As much as I like OpenGL, the radeon OpenGL driver has always been a joke (still is) and is the main reason Rage got so much hate. Half of the players could not run it. Whereas, the D3D driver for radeons is quite good. Unless id wants Doom 4 to get bashed to hell and back too, they have no choice but to switch. The bad thing is their huge investment in OpenGL for their tools. That's the thing that would make a switch difficult and costly.

And $154 is the quakecon rate for the hotel? I hate to see what it costs normally. As much as I'd like to go to QC, no way am I paying that much for a hotel. Especially not for several nights during the whole event.

I'm glad Sony came to their senses and dropped the touch screen button option. Touch screen buttons on phones/tablets suck. It's a very undesirable way to control a game. It's no surprise so many want to hook gamepads to their phone/tablet for games and why things like iCade exist (including their upcoming accessories).

A joke? The only thing that's a joke is trying to claim this was a joke and being a shill.

They got caught with their pants down and tried to play it off. Simple as that, period.

What's even more funny/sad is this thing had a hard time playing that video too. lol! It struggled like hell in the beginning.

I really wish Blizzard would make their games available on Steam. I hate the Blizzard downloader and the way it automatically rapes your connection in order to distribute the game using YOUR bandwidth to other people. Fucking cheapskates.

On the plus side, the DIII beta was awesome and so I'll probably grab it. Not sure whether that will be for release or if I'll wait for a discount. Tropico 4 is keeping me occupied at the moment and I haven't even started on Shogun 2 yet.


I agree I HATE their torrent style downloader. It's always slower than crap. Normally I download at ~2.3 MB/sec (20Mb cable) but I'm doing good to get 1Mb (notice that's mega BIT) or less on Blizzard's crap.

Oh I'm sure it's just love taps.

I personally like Netflix a lot. And it's stupid to blame them on price hikes when the source of that is the greedy ass content owners. They keep charging more and more for licensing even though it's not necessary. This is the same reason cable companies are having to charge more. People say, oh you should cut the cord or dump Netflix...but why? Where are you going to go and why dump them when it's not their fault? It's effing greedy hollywood. And of course, they are going to cry about piracy and other non-sense.

I have not finished DNF. It's just so hard when the entire game is so bland and stale. Plus the way damage is taken is really inconsistent and odd. It's quite annoying.

I just go back and play Duke 3D with a source port and some mods. Way better.
