He merely misunderstood something I said, because of the way it was worded, and the ease at which language can become confusing on the internet without particular inflection or emphasis.

But you're welcome to butt in with your own opinion if you like.

haha! Yeah, man. Their games always came off as corny and badly done, to me. Just like you said, they'd be like, "oh this did pretty well.. Let's make fifty more and just quick-buck this idea to death."

Somehow, I don't see a business model like that making millionaires out of the people doing it. ...At least not for very long.

How about adding the ability to, oh, say, let us specify what directory to install games to? Instead of forcing them all to be on one partition. That would be swell.

Windows Steam doesn't even let you do that. I'm not sure why they do it that way, but I kind of like the fact that everything is in one place, under my account name.

I'm sure having all the directories available for mods and whatnot has something to do with it, since, technically, the games are only in a few packed files, and only unpacks them when you run them, allowing you to put any content you want in there, or overwrite unpacked content, and it will take precedence over the content inside the packed files.

Just make sure where you install Steam has ample room to install games onto. (At least that's how the Windows version works, but it sounds like the Mac version deviates slightly.)

"Safety ministers." That they feel they need to protect the public from these perceived evils is evidence enough of their paranoia. It's good that they merely have authority to cast a vote, or it would be a scary thing in itself, carrying with it the risk of creating an individual body with the power to do exactly what they're afraid of.

It's good to see a petition like this actually having a positive effect, and influencing change in the interest of the people.

When I visit relatives in the Dallas, TX area, we do go to the Studio Movie Grill. The last time we went on a Sunday afternoon and it was only $6 for a ticket. Other times I think it's about the same as other movie theaters ($8?), but for what other movie theaters charge for a small popcorn, you can get a full meal. If we had one of those near by, I'd go to the movies more often.
That sounds like a cool place to check out.


# ASUS ROG Xpander might be the craziest four-way SLI solution you've ever seen.
Okay, so you have an add-in board. You plug four cards into it, and it only utilizes two pci-e slots. I don't imagine it would oversaturate the two slots if they were x16, but would it be too much bandwidth for an x8? What about the latency introduced by the board itself? Seems like if you're going to spend money on something like this, you might be better off just doing two dual-gpu cards. I'd be interested in seeing performance reviews of this product.

Why is Germany so afraid of things? It's not like they're going to create another Hitler--he didn't even have video games.

"Just like Creative Labs, why bother with a dedicated sound card when the onboard sound is more than fine? "

not fine enough for me.
Onboard quality SUCKS!
What, specifically, is wrong with on-board sound?

Who in the world wants a closed system when you can have an open system in the PC.

the same can be said about consoles. and look where we are at now.

Uhh.. Not quite the same thing. Consoles are solely for gaming. A whole lot more can be done on a Windows PC, and good luck doing any real gaming on an iPad.

You're ignoring the business applications of a desktop PC which are completely ignored by a device such as the iPad, as well.

It seems to me that the iPad is just a quick solution for today's spoiled brats who just want "another tech toy." What relevance, or even useful application does the iPad offer beyond mere self-indulged novelty? No, there is no way any device like the iPad is going to pose any threat whatsoever to the PC. They are two completely different tools for completely separate functions.

Who the fuck would pay $400+ for a vid card these days when the consoles are so inexpensive and PC makers are all bailing onto consoles.

I would. Probably a bunch of other posters as well.
I would, and I have. Consoles? Are you kidding me?

Anyway, yeah, I agree with Blue. BFG is awesome. I think their recent BFG trade-up programs might have been somewhat taxing on their profitability though. I was able to trade up from an old BFG GeForce 7800 GS OC AGP to a 9600 GT PCI-Express for free. They've always been a great company from a customer service standpoint. They will be missed in the graphics sector.

I have to say, after watching the last video, I'm looking forward to this one. I'll prob go for the 360 version, since they throw in Prototype, and give you a $20 credit for a future purchase.


Why pay full price for it when you could buy it for the half? You get the same game in Wolfenstein, Singularity is just a carbon copy of Wolfenstein and contains all the same things....

Yeah, dude. It's, like, totally like the same thing, only with more of the same.

I remember the days when games just came with this shit standard. Now, you have to jump through all kinds of crazy hoops just to get the game, practically.

Nowadays, when I buy a game, I don't ever get that "hey, thanks for supporting our products" feeling from game companies. Well there is one exception, but all the others just feel like greedy pricks, and creating a quality game and a quality experience (and of course a good post-purchase feeling) aren't even on their list of things-to-do.

I know designers who drink Apple's juice all the time.

Ah yes, designers. I am one, and happy to be PC based. But most of the industry (especially when it comes to web design) think the only computer you can design something on is a Mac.
Don't you fucking HATE how MacOS insists on keeping the desktop visible behind applications? Open Photoshop, for example, and you get to see everything behind it, instead of a white background, like on a PC. You have the menu bar across the top, the toolbar on the left, and the layers and other tabs on the right. The rest is wide fucking open, instead of masked off by the program's background. It's extremely fucking annoying. I hate having that distraction of (and annoyance of accidentally clicking on) the shit behind my window. That is but one of the many Mac UI flaws.

I think it's amazing that most of you say you dislike the movie on the merits of the story and not the special effects. I would like to remind you that many scenes were completely CGI. By itself that was completely amazing.
And they invented a special 3d camera just for this movie.
