You think this is bullpoo? Wait until it is on sale for $29 or $39 6 to 8 weeks after release. You get what you deserve when you pre-order... pre-ordering is for suckers that lack patience.

16 down from 64. I sense an issue. Are they going for real low end graphics and thus can't handle 6u unique toons. Or is their server code junk and can't process that many actors and their spawns?

Bingo. The first 5 minutes after you connect is spent downloading all the players customized avatars. I understand that is probably necessary, but you can't play while it's doing it; it just freezes up. And I don't have a slouch of a connection either.

That being said, the game is fun, but I don't see it rising to the level of the other BF games and certainly not TF2. Can't beat the price though. I don't understand how you can complain about anything that's free.

Although I appreciate the Groundhog Day reference, version numbers shed light on your epic fail.

3 days ago - 1.1

For those of us who read above an eighth grade level, his writing is quite entertaining and enjoyable.

It could be, if he didn't revert to eight grade level with unnecessary and ostentatious swearing. It clearly shows his vocabulary is pretentious. If your vocabulary is truly well- developed, you don't have to swear to make your point. Swearing is for the ignorant or depraved.

Bats dude, except for drag-n-drop, labels in Gmail work exactly like folders. Further, you can assign multiple labels to the same email. Try that with folders.

Some players may have joined these modified servers during the time they were active and found their profiles reset. This reset can not be undone as all resets have been fully investigated by the Support team and proven to be invalid scores.

Way to lump casual players that join those servers in with the cheaters.

Way to miss the point in your knee jerk desire to trash EA and/or BF2. Casual or not, if you were on a one of those servers, you got points you should not have. Doesn't matter if you knew about it or not.

They stopped being funny when they thought they had to resort to swearing to be hip or edgy. Very sophomoric, but I guess they were catering to their fanbase.

This just confirms why I dont play MMORPGs. If you need a program to play the game for you, it's too tedious for the player.

QFT! It stops being a game at that point.

Well, that is only part of the picture. The other is than fine young men and women that might consider a career in law enforcement shy away because of all the negativity the media creates for cops these days.

Great info, but facts like these won't change people's perception of "reality". The green movement is way too political now to reverse course, and it is starting to generate revenue, which will only further its continued existence.

In the end, hate it all you want. Just never forget how much you paid for it.

I do agree that door comment was pretty lame though, and love the Portal reference.

3. Re: Why people hate vista Feb 5, 2008, 12:21 Atomic
 
This article is right on; we had the same reaction when we went to a new state of art ERP system at work. People freaked, said it sucked, but it wasn't the software.

Vista's biggest problem is that too many people are using it on systems that can't handle it. The computer manufacturer's don't help by selling systems with 512 or even 1GB of RAM. Vista needs at least 2GB to run decent, more to run well. And to further exacerbate the problem, they ship with Aero enabled by default on systems with no decent GPU in them.

It never ceases to amaze me how someone can complain about something offered for free.

As far as the guy looking like a Pixar character, well duh, only so many ways to draw a cartoon HUMAN and not have it have similarities to SOMETHING.

Can someone explain to me why specific game tweaks are needed in a driver? Wasn't one of the points of standards like DX(x) and OpenGL to prevent game specific coding?

No need for respawns; when a player dies, they simply take over one of the computer players. Each side plays until objective reached, or lose through attrition.
