OK, now they just need to patch Steam again, cuz they done gone and broked the Friends list today.
Friends goes down from time to time. It's working fine for me right now. Usually, if it goes down, it's due to back-end updates and such, and doesn't usually impact the friends service for long.

Not a huge RTS fan. I basically lost interest after WarCraft 2. :\ I've played RTS games since, but they all feel exactly the same to me, and they get frustrating when your enemies overrun you, and you have to keep sending out attack orders, but your guys keep dying faster than you can produce them. Too much micro-management for me, I guess. Is this game any different?

Also, from the title, I expected "high-res" to actually mean high res. 1280x800 is hardly high resolution these days. It's not even half of my desktop resolution.

Yeah, I remember the thread in the official forums where that was discovered. They never did say sorry to the guy. He was pretty cool about it, considering the uninstall also removed his saved games without prompting him.
I'm sure they sent him out a "care package." If they didn't, well, I guess I've gotten spoiled by devs like Valve who actually seem to care about their demographic. Okay, let's not kid ourselves. The suits never know what goes on in their customer base, let alone their games. >:\

I am on my second playthrough. The first time, I played on normal difficulty level, and maxed the paragon, and got maybe 1/4 renegade.

This time, I'm aiming to fill my renegade meter. I wanna see how fucked up I can get Shepard's face to look. Also, playing on insanity, the highest difficulty. Holy crap. This really upstages the combat, lemme tell you. Far more challenging, and, I think, a lot more fun in the end. The combat on normal is just kind of blah, and I almost never died. Totally the opposite on Insane. I recommend you guys try it out.

I'm going for the achievement you get when you play through at the highest difficulty without lowering it.

Vehicle control is probably referring to the spaceship during the star navigation portions of the game.
I was thinking this as well.

You know, in my day, double posting was grounds for dismissal.

also,
Game industry elite gathered at the Dice Summit (photo gallery).
Look at all these old fucks. No wonder the gaming industry is falling apart. (Or at least nothing that it used to be...) None of these gray-haired suits understand what it takes to make a good game, nor do they play them themselves. I think it's time we shook the industry up, and got some of their demographic into the official positions. We need less EAs and Activisions, and more Sierras and Accolades. ...or something. I'm sure there's a deep, meaningful rant in there somewhere. :\

Alright, interesting to hear. I never took him with me on missions because I doubted he would be that talkative due to the fact the interaction with him on the ship is so minimal.

Noted for my next playthrough!

Also, you know how when you talk to Joker after missions, and you can ask him about the crew, and he refers to "the ones you went out with last?" He has something to say about Zaeed, so how can that DLC not have been planned into the game, and then only given to those who bought the game new?

I still have i76 in the box, in pristine condition. Right next to it on the shelf is an equally pristine i82, because I was enough of a sucker back then to buy the thing on release day. :\ I LOVED i76, although my machine at the time (386?) could hardly run it without hiccups, and it failed to run on XP.

i82 was okay, but not nearly as legendary, and it felt rushed, unfinished, and full of bugs.

I swear, the black dude with the fro in the game was voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, working under a pseudonym. It HAS to be him. Sounds exactly like him, and he even says a couple of trademarked lines in i76. Anybody know for sure? The credits at the end, I remember listing some other name, which is why I think it's an assumed name.

A teen didn't report the crime. Supposedly a Canadian adult did.
Did you read the article? O.o

- The teen said he planned to shoot a pregnant girl and best friend in the face while on Xbox Live with the Canadian teen that informed the authorities.

I already know Alan Wake is gunna be a piece of fucking shit. That's ALWAYS the end result when a game gets this much sudden manufactured PR. I'm glad they can't sucker ignorant moms into buying it for their PC-gaming kids. They don't deserve that extra revenue.

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.
