I don't care if it's a PC port. There are no square tv's being made anymore either. Honestly...

If by square, you mean 4:3, yes, they're still widely used... I've never heard of a square aspect ratio on a monitor tho... I assumed you meant monitor, not tv...

Anyhoo... I run it at 1920 x 1200, and the little bit trimmed off the edge doesn't bother me, and if I get it wide screen patched, I'll likely find the new view annoying heh : )

-Alamar
Yes, I mean 4:3. That is referred to as "square aspect," even though it's technically not QUITE square. Pixels are rectangular though, so a 4:3 ratio is pretty close to square dimensionally.

Several years ago, before everything was "high definition," all monitors (tv's as well as computer monitors) were "square." Now, they're a dying breed, and I feel sorry for anyone who has to use them now. They're so antique, it just feels weird viewing anything on them.

Even my 24" CRT monitor is widescreen. (It's 16:10 which I prefer to 16:9. To me, 16:9 feels a bit too narrow horizontally for games.) Anyway, With everything being in widescreen these days, it's a little alarming to see a game coming out that doesn't support it, or that isn't specifically coded for it.

Glad I passed this one up. The first Bioshock didn't impress me at all, and this one is doing a really good job at reassuring me that the sequel isn't all that great either. Have yet to hear anybody rave about it, and all the bugs make it seem like an unfinished tech demo.

What the shit?! It needs a widescreen monitor patch? WHO THE FUCKING HELL USES SQUARE ASPECT MONITORS THESE DAYS?! Good lord! You'd think something like that would be impossible to miss in a gaming studio. You're telling me they don't use widescreen monitors at 2K?

I don't care if it's a PC port. There are no square tv's being made anymore either. Honestly...

Nintendo said the loss was caused when Burt made New Super Mario Bros for the Wii gaming console available for illegal download a week ahead of its official Australian release in November last year.
Oh, please, Nintendo! You did not lose $1.5mil in sales due to this shitty game being pirated. Do they really think $1.5mil worth of copies were downloaded? And how about the people who bought it after checking it out? It probably helped their bottom line a bit in the long run.

In fact, I'm amazed the game has hit $10.5 million.

I love all these willfully clueless nvidia fanboys. Go learn your shit before you talk shit.

Nvidia is getting out of the mid- to high-end desktop sector to focus almost entirely on mobile devices such as the Zune HD. ATI has won the PC market, and there's no slowing them down, it seems. They have the most powerful graphics cards, the best image quality, and the best driver support. I love how the tides have turned.

Go and leave your fanboism in that topic! Tali for ME3! Companion --> Romance --> Marriage, if you ask me!

Yay
Well, that's a rather random thread.

I hope they do unmask her in ME3, and all you freaks can go "!!!!OMFG!!!!!" when you see her extreme butterface, and wish they'd just left the mask on her.

Probably.....defiantly.
Did you mean defiantly, or definitely?

Just seem like the story could continue, without Shepard. Maybe not, does it really have to be a Specter now, I mean since there are humans on the council and they can build these ships now, so couldn't a new PC with a different story take over?

I gathered they designed this universe to continue for many, many games and yes I did realize this story was a trilogy, it just never said (at least I saw) it was Shepard's trilogy.
Okay, fair enough. But really, can you see them thinking it would be a good idea to piss off a huge number of their audience who came to like Shepard? Can you imagine how many forums would be filled with "OMFG I AM NOT BUYING THIS GAME! IT SUXXXXXXXX!!111!1!1! BRING SHEPARD BACK YOU STUPID DOODIE HEADS!!!!1111"

I was quite disappointed in ME2 by having some of my team members die, seemingly randomly. To hear that certain things could've been done in the game to prevent that is really annoying. It's another poor design choice, akin to punishing the player for guessing the wrong number between 1 and 10. Don't punish the player if they can't reasonably predict the consequences of their actions or inaction; that's as bad as forced failure and invisible walls.
How is it hard to reload your save from before the battle and do it until nobody dies? o.O

It's to be expected. Up until that point, you'd been redoing parts to get the best result anyway right? YOU HAVEN'T? Well no wonder....

Acleacius wrote on Feb 6, 2010, 00:02:
I get the impression Bioware intended to kill off Shepard in ME2 but there was so much backlash about not being able to use saves from the previous ME games, they changed the story.
Why would they do that? It was ALWAYS planned to be a trilogy. Why would they have you come back for the third as a different character? You're dumb. <3

It's a GAME!! You just blew huge amounts of REAL money on a FAKE item that may or may not even actually DO anything IN THE VIRTUAL WORLD. If you're that hurting to get rid of your millions, I'm sure there are plenty of people out there (such as myself) who could put it to much better use. Call it humanitarian aid. We're in a fucking recession here! Good lord.

They keep saying 'he' in the article about the 9 year old with the MS certs. The pictures are those of a girl.
I KNOW!! I came here to post about that. I'm like, "what the fuck? That is TOTALLY a girl! It has girl hair, girl face, girl earring..." What the hell? Either the article is wrong, the pictures are unrelated, or that kid is going to have the most fucked up identity crisis in history sometime soon. O.o

Lionhead To Reveal Game Changer at GDC.

I really don't trust Lionhead to create anything both innovative and lastingly fun... Peter's kind of the John Romero of weird games--in that he talks a lot, but never really delivers.

haha. So it was in there... Found a list of the already-leaked DLC:
Zaeed (New squad member)
Umbra Visor
Terminus Armor
Sentry Interface
Recon Hood
Normandy Crash (New mission; explore the Normandy crash site; lets you gain an item for your captain's quarters)
Inferno Armor
Incisor Sniper Rifle
Collectors Weapon and Armor
Blood Dragon Armor

edit - There are tons of forums and stuff on the net talking about Dr. P codes you can use to get the ones listed in this news post. O.o Why didn't they just make it a free download? Now nobody even has to buy a Dr. P product since the codes are freely available for anyone who knows how to use google.

Probably all the DLC that was already accidentally leaked from the EA content servers or whatever a couple weeks ago. There were ten of them, if I recall correctly.

So tempted to take some of those to work and running them off on our 46" wide printer.
72dpi 1024x768 would absolutely look like SHIT. Unless you like taking a magnifying glass to the pixels on your screen, and then rubbing chicken grease all over it to make it blurry...

Some REALLY SHITTY ones here. Obviously Valve felt sorry for someone... >_>
This is what you take away from looking at that page? And we wonder why there's so much animosity here at blues (or at least I do). It's negativity like this.

I thought there were some really neat and clever entries there.
Yeah, there were some really awesome ones. But fully half of them didn't deserve mention. It makes me wonder why so many people actually put effort into theirs since, clearly, Valve wasn't concerned with the quality of the work. The winning ones were good, but there were better ones amongst the entries that didn't make it into the runners-up.

And at least one of the runners-up utilized work stolen from other artists. Way to set a standard of ethics.

I'll admit, I know next to nothing about STO, as I haven't been interested enough to look into it. The trailers are enough to tell me this game is "bleh." But isn't this a pay-to-play?
