I'm in on the vista is a buggy pos. I had a new dell with quad core and 8800gt delivered 3 weeks ago. Of course it had vista installed.

It took me 5 hours to BSOD, would randomly not boot at times and I either got CTD or PSOD playing mmos about 10 mins after I logged on at times.

I finally had enough this weekend and rebuilt it to xp - what a surprise not a single crash or problem.

Yeah sure - a MMO using the crysis engine. That won't lag at raids at all will it!

Vanguard used the unreal 3 engine and had such bad performance it was a gamebreaker for many people.

Hmm for uk people affected by the try
It's a prepayed debit card which you can top up at any paypoint (petrol/corner shops).

It comes in very handy when paying for stuff on the internet from sites you don't want having your actual card details (or in this case you can't use your normal card for).

BTW I don't work for 360 or have anything to do with them. Just trying to help.

Hmm this sucks - I have one 8-series card in which is loaded to maximum most of the time.

But I do have 2 more cpu cores pretty much doing nothing at the same time.

I'd much rather see games properly multi-threaded onto multi-core cpus then put more work on my GFX card.

Funny you should mention Sony. I wonder who sells more PC games, SOE or Microsoft

Erm I'm sorry but for the 0.1% of people reading this who actually run 3 gpus at a res of 2560x1600...


I would actually embed that as an mp3 - but your probably deaf from the noise of your PC anyway.

On a more serious note - anybody, in any job, in any country who actually thinks that running 3 graphics cards at once would not be:

A) A collosal waste of money
B) A unworthy performance increase over 2 or even 1
C) Bug and performance issue ridden

NEEDS FUCKING SHOOTING. Seriously the nvidia guys who believe your avaerage gamers will buy this must of got their PHds from the same place as Mr D.Smart Esquire.

13. Re: No subject Feb 2, 2008, 19:52 Lorcin
Why is this news?

More to the point WHY?

Seriously I will play a racing game on a console once in a while - but PCs and racing games just never feel quite right. Kind of a comfort factor - if I want something as utterly brainless as a racing game I would much rather be lounging on the sofa.

The opposite is also true - FPS are ALWAYS on the pc. I'd rather wait for a crappy port the deal with a controller.

1. Erm yeah Jan 25, 2008, 12:40 Lorcin
Because really the big problem with Atari games is that they don't have enough advertising. Seems to me Atari most need some common sense - but unfortunately you can't buy that.

It's simple really:

"We want to make another Matrix game" "NO"
"We want to make another Driver" "NO"
"We want to make a D&D game because obviously people who play computer RPGs all play tabletop games" "NO"
"We want to make a movie spinoff" "NO"

It seriously would not amaze me if next week they announced that they'd come to a licensing agreement with Mr Smart (PHD).

great now you can grind hecks from level 30-220 in shiny new 3d.

I quit AO shortly after getting to the 6th part of shadowsland
when I asked what do we do now and they said - kill hacks. That was at about level 180. Must have been INSANE!

So you guys imagine that anybody who bought the lifetime subscription package and after this lame announcement committed hari-kari.

Would their family have grounds too sue for false advertising this shit as a game and therefore bury this crap once and for all?

Or would the mighty Eula win again?

(Translation: HAHA lifetime subscription peeps - we fucking told you so)

$40m. Only in this business will you piss away that kind of money and actually live to see another day, let alone get another high profile job.

It's not that uncommon in other businesses really. To be fair I went back to VG for a couple of months last summer. Got up to about 20 again but just couldn't be bothered with it. There was nothing really wrong (apart from the performance on my kinda aging PC) - it just didn't have that addictive hook.

It left my wife cold too even though she's played EQ2, AO, WoW extensively - this one she never played once.

hmm well Derek appears to have done one smart thing in his life. This thread has SO many replies it's just insane.

He's little flame war is turning what should be at best a "etc." post into one of the biggest threads of the last 12 months.

I would love to believe there really is a person anywhere in the world who stupid enough to believe his conduct in this thread were a good idea. Instead I honestly think that after the launch of BC3000AD Derek realised that bad publicity is better then none and this thread is just the latest crank of the free publicity wheel - much like the whole UC free tactic.

Derek is one of five or six "game" developers I could name 24/7, drunk or sober. Not for good reasons obviously but the cunning bastard gets his name EVERYWHERE.

Someone earlier compared him to the Uwe Boll of video games and that is just SO true. Motto? If you can't be good as your chosen profession then why not be try to make money by being as ridiculously bad as possible.

I think he is actually beyond Uwe Boll's level and is getting to cult status of shittiness ala Ed Wood. I'm probably gonna blow his master plan here but it would not surprise me if he fakes his own death soon after the release of his magnus shitus which will afterwards be called the worst console game ever. After that he will once and for all secure his cult status and his memory will live on for years - whilst his sitting on a beach somewhere living off the royalties and sales of "I got my PhD with Derek" T-shirts and other merchandise.

Can we sue them for false advertising advertising space??

I fail to see why you would bitch at him releasing his older games for free.

Cause it's a damn advertising ploy the everyone around here seems to think is a laudable gesture. His hoping someone, somewhere will actually like one of these and cough up for one of his newer versions.
