Not interested in UT3, I need Unreal 3 based on the Unreal 1 universe.

Perfect, I just finished Ep2 a week ago. If the quality of these games stays the same throughout the season I will buy Season 2 for sure.

The dialogues are just too funny.

News Comments > Black Mirror 2 Announced

If you can still enjoy classic 2d adventures games like the old Lucasarts games, then Black Mirror is the perfect game for you. The first one was really good. Great story and excellent, stylish, moody graphics with good puzzles.

Unfortunately I've yet to see the episodic content done right. Even Valve, with all of their resources, can't seem to get it done.

It exists --> Sam & Max Episodes.

6 great episodes, 3-4 hours gameplay per game, released every month for a total of 35$. Episodic games will not get better than this.

I immensely enjoyed the first two games can't wait for the third.

yeah, but before that they should make a law that makes spamming in forums illegal.

Porn stars may look sexy as all get out in standard definition, but... well, maybe not so much in HD. You can't hide those plastic surgery scars, stretch marks and a__-pimples in high-def.

That's so untrue. I heard the same stories about actors and actresses apparently not wanting their movies to be released in HD because everybody would then be able to see their skin wrinkles.

Of course, it didn't take long until everyone realized that those stories were made-up and every imperfection which could be revealed in HD, certainly would already have been revealed in the theatre.

Porn in HD certainly looks way better than in SD. The advantages for sure surpass the problems here. No, this is really not an argument why porn will not decide the format wars but the online availability certainly is.

yes, but nevertheless the feeling was excellent. The story was good, the dialogs funny and graphics very enjoyable for this type of game.

I had a great time with it.

Unfortunately it's not a bug, it's a "feature". You gotta love DRM.

Indeed, it's no bug and this has actually nothing to do with MS or Vista. It cannot be fixed legally.

Hey, they both disc standards have DRM so it's not like HD DVD is a present from heaven.

Correct but at least HDDVDs have no zones, are cheaper than Blurays and offer unprecedented image quality.

adding to that, that site was created by two guys directly affiliated to AMD (ATI).

Viral Marketing at its worst!

Wow, I didn't know that people today are willing to pay 500$+ to play a game. I thought that 50$ for a game was already a travesty.

yes, I know that Valve's physics system is virtually useless in online oriented games, what a surprise. It's not that Valve are know for their great (engine or network) coders.

HL1 can be used for Racing MODs but the Source SDK is not advanced enough for an simple online racing game. Wow, who would have guessed that?

4. AACS Cracked Dec 28, 2006, 10:51 vacs
 
Before someone asks, AACS has actually not been cracked nor can the binaries and sourcecode which have been made available be used to rip an original HDDVD movie to the HDD.

The tool BackupHDDVD is simply a Java-based implementation of the publically available AACS decryption algorithm but you still need the actually decryption keys to decode your HD movies... although as it looks, those keys are not very well protected in Cyberlink's PowerDVD.

Adding to that, every movie has its own key, so no universal de-aacs can be made available.

News Comments > SiN Episodes Q&A
31. No subject Dec 22, 2006, 06:47 vacs
 
Funny, just 1 week ago I wrote a post in a different forum that that the Sin episodes were ill-fated and doomed and that Valve will most probably stop releasing episodes after their HL2 Trilogy because the business model does not work.

Seems that one half of my post has already been proven right and I have no doubt that the second part will also become true.

Episodes works if done correctly and till now I have only seen one true episodic serie: Sam & Max
