This headline is sensationalist crap. Nothing here is obsolete or becoming obsolete. The headline completely misrepresents the situation, as anyone who bothers to read the article will see.

4. Re: cool weather good for 360? Aug 7, 2007, 00:29 Tom
 
I wonder if places with cold weather can help keep a 360 alive longer

Sounds like a great question for the "Everybody Votes Channel". Oh wait, wrong console.

That is sad. He inspired others, including my favorite...

"QML- Was Blahbalicious inspired by any other movie?

Avatar- It was inspired by some of the other Quake movies. I dont think it would exist if Operation Bay Shield hadn't been done, but we ended up scrapping most of the Die Fette Faust ideas."

This is one of the worst threads I've ever seen on Blue's News. Congrats on taking things to a new low, guys. Keep it up and one of these days Blue will just remove the comment feature. I know I'd be thinking about it if it was my site.

3. What's new... Jul 29, 2007, 21:55 Tom
 
In case anyone is wondering what's new, here's the link (for the SDK):

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=529F03BE-1339-48C4-BD5A-8506E5ACF571&displaylang=en#new

Not really anything interesting, except the list of stuff that will be omitted from the next SDK release. My goodness, they're removing DirectMusic and DirectPlay! What a shame. Hahaha...

A once great franchise indeed. Can you believe it's been 16 years since then?

News Comments > Colin McRae: DIRT Patch
8. Re: No subject Jul 23, 2007, 15:57 Tom
 
I tried the PC demo with a wheel and messed around with the controls for saturation and linearity for like an hour - could never find anything that was anywhere NEAR drivable. (I was stunned to see proper support for multiple controllers, however.) I have no problems with other games like LFS, RBR, GTR, etc. When turning the wheel, the in-game wheel wouldn't turn much until I reached a certain point and then WHAM huge change, and the car veers off to the side. Wheels and analog sticks don't work the same, but this game seems to treat them the same.

I spent about half an hour searching around their forum and it looked like nobody was able to overcome this problem...

Seems it was a design decision to just not support a steering wheel. How retarded is that? Oh wait, this is Codemasters we're talking about.

9. Re: 1.77GB???? Jul 5, 2007, 14:19 Tom
 
1.77GB is nothing. Quit your whining and get some perspective. That would take less than an hour at 5Mbps, the speed I get from the cable ISP rated worst in the US by PC World. It would consume about 39 cents worth of storage. This is NOTHING compared to what people used to download when resources were more constrained, relatively speaking.

Starlancer was kind of meh, I'd say we haven't had a good space sim since Freespace 2.

Freespace 2 was ok but a little meh too. The space sim is truly an underserved genre. I don't think there have been any truly good space sims other than Wing Commander 2 and Tie Fighter, which is very sad.

Vista is a very touchy subject. It's easy to see how

With Vista and a good DX10 card your comp will be ready for Crysis.

could be interpreted as

Without Vista, you're gonna be screwed!

especially if someone didn't connect it with the previous post.

Heh yeah right, you know someone's just going to comment out a #define somewhere and run a batch file to rebuild the whole thing. Only a complete moron would code it in the worst case you describe. (Of course, there are plenty of such people programming...)

11. Re: WoW jumped the shark Jun 30, 2007, 23:26 Tom
 
Just because someone doesn't like raiding doesn't mean MMOs aren't their type of game. A lot of people, myself included, happen to think raiding sucks, and there's much more fun to be had in leveling up. Woody outlined the reasons pretty well in his post. But you can only level up so much and then it's over. That's why I quit within a month once I reached 60 and never looked back. Well, there were plenty of other reasons, but that was a big one.

My advice - forget about WoW. There are many things that are more fun and less painful that you can do with your life. Life's too short to waste on WoW!

I've never seen vehicle drops beyond the regular (infrequent) rate. That sounds interesting. What I have seen is vehicle drops on helicopters and infantry, which seems to bother some people a lot but I find it hilarious...

Oh yeah? I've seen plenty of cheating in CounterStrike over the years. People running faster than they should. Jumping higher. Flying through the air. Shooting through walls. Magically knowing exactly where everyone is. Getting ridiculous numbers of kills or kill/death ratios for no apparent reason.

I haven't seen ANY OF THAT in BF2.

I'm not saying there aren't cheaters in BF2. I'm sure there are. But it isn't nearly as rampant as people around here make it out to be. Either that or my friends and I have been incredibly lucky.

I still play this a couple of nights a week with friends on external voice comm. It's a total blast. We join random ranked servers. With 400+ hours into the game, I don't think I've ever experienced a problem with anyone cheating or hacking. And the only bug that I run into every now and then is the game not recognizing my rank or unlocks, so I have to restart the game and reconnect.

I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of this game and expect to continue playing it for some time to come. It's very annoying to see stupid posts on here saying the game is completely broken. Just look at the number of people playing it. There's a LOT. Why would so many people continue to play a completely broken game? It's been a couple of years and there are plenty of other games out there, right?
