they are.

Also, something I learned as a child on a trip to Britain with my parents: a "cot" is a baby's crib in the UK. In the US, it means a folding bed.

I am only posting this message so that bluesnews saves my password and I don't have to remember it next time.

I figured no one would mind in a 24 post story.

Having just played through KOTOR for the first time and thoroughly enjoy it, I had to jump on this one.

I thought it was exactly as restrictive as Bioshock. Online activation required, and more than 3 activations requires deactivating old installs.

It's pretty funny that the worst games this year have all been branded "Games for Windows"...pretty much anything that shows up in the Game Explorer (Lame Explorer?) is a worthless console port, or shitty game to begin with.

All games show up in the Games Explorer, not just "Games for Windows." Vampire bloodlines, Silent Hunters 3 & 4, Civ 4 & Civ 4 Warlords, Thief 3, Doom 3, and others all show up in my Games Explorer automatically, with downloaded cover art, release dates, version numbers and everything.

We've been flooded with these "top xx ever!" articles lately. I think these guys are realizing that headlines like that generate clicks, I know I always click on them. Not this one though, I've got to resist the urge!

AT&T DSL does not cap bandwidth, nor do most ISPs in the northeast. I should know, I download hundreds of gigabytes per month easily, and have never heard a word about it.

7. well... Apr 11, 2008, 23:12 skyguy
 
well at least I am looking forward to reading some reviews and trying a demo. I have the benefit of never having played any previous fallout game, and a AAA post-apocalyptic RPG sounds like fun to me.

I bought a Razer AC-1 recently. I think its great, and while I'm no audiophile I have noticed a lot more clarity over my SB Live with the now-famous modded drivers on Vista x64.

The only problem is that the Vista x64 drivers for the AC-1 aren't digitally signed, which means I have to press F8 and disable drivers signature enforcement every time I boot. They're supposed to come out with digitally signed drivers... someday.

I actually thought that one of the assault rifles (ak-74? i don't remember) was one of the most satisfying guns to shoot out of any video game I've played. But yeah, the long walks sucked.

"Now, I use the onboard audio that is Dolby Digital certified, run it through my Dolby enabled Pioneer receiver to a surround system and it is better than anything an add-in card will ever give me for the purposes for which it is utilized."

But Dolby surround only works with movies, right? If you want true surround sound with games you need to use analog connections. At least I thought that was the case.

I just replaced my SB Live with a Razer AC-1 and I like it as well. One thing to keep in mind though is that there's no signed drivers for Vista, so if you're running 64-bit Vista SP1 you will need to hit F8 and disable driver signing every time you boot until updated drivers are released.
