Yeah, I can't fathom why the common comment to browser gaming here is "fuck you!"
[...]

Because it adds another unnecessary layer between the software you want to run and the hardware.
Opera and Firefox, the browsers I use (cannot comment about the others), seem to be hogging resources like mad and are quite slow.
Maybe a fresh install with only a few tabs and no add-ons works okay but if you use it more excessively it gets bad.
Why not use browser just for what browsers were initially designed for?

Whining is what causes progress, fact is ID never again will be regarded as a good PC Developer after this, and Carmack nothing but a Quack when he opens his mouth about graphics technology, and the future of it.

Mega-Texture is not the future

Whaaaat? Rolleyes2

So Carmack innovates like crazy and is probably the most influential figure in FPS games ever (and graphics technology in general) and because of one game that was primarily made to make his company some money he's now a quack? [...]

Uhm, most games are primarily made to make a company money. What exactly are you getting at?

Point blank shotgun is still a symphony of awesome on soft targets. The wingsticks are an insta-gib too.

I finally got into the city map last night; the textures definitely aren't up to snuff in that area It may be time for me to upgrade the old 8800s unless some tweak comes out that addresses it. Damn, those cards have lasted me almost forever...5 years now, I think.

It's fucking ridiculous to have to upgrade your GPU for a game like this. The engine is a pile of bad coding. Last week I was still bragging about how my 2 year old gig can still run all the newest games on max settings only for this console port to prove me otherwise? I'm not falling for that, and I feel horribly freaking sad for the people that do. Horribly.

The worst part is that we're talking about id here.
It always seemed to me that they had some of the most competent coders what's with all the new tech they were always pushing.

I guess we're seeing the fall of id here.

I doubt that highly. Every one of their games have had issues, and every game on release someone said that. Hasn't happened yet, and I doubt it will now.

I agree that the PC version of the engine isn't fully baked, but, as I've said numerous times, Carmack is not one to let a project go that still has issues--many here have seen that firsthand. He'll see it through.

And I'm pretty sure that will benefit whatever else they make under idTech5.

Maybe but let me clarify. I didn't mean the the whole company is going to fall.
It's just that PC gamers lost another real PC developer.

Yes, you are, seeing as how the information on some topics is more specialised, more accurate and more vast in a book.

I am about 99.999+0.001% sure I never mentioned the word "sequel" anywhere in my post.

Judging something on it's own merit was my topic.

Exactly, this is where my helpful links come into play. Now you can learn about that, too.

Which doesn't mean that there are more fans of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas than there are of Fallout 1 and 2.

Somehow this "enjoy on its own merit" argument is weird. It is a DIRECT sequel which means that yes, it's going to be compared to the predecessors. Nothing abnormal about that.

The last guy that reviewed it (that I read) didn't speak too terribly highly of it. What's part is a blast? Can you sum it up?

I am a sucker for side-scrollers or top-down shooters so I am probably biased but I just love the exploring and the crafting, all the possibilities and the management of the settlements.
Although I have to say that it becomes kind of a grind after some time, things clearly need to be better balanced. But it's still only a beta and it seems like many of the changes can be implemented rather fast.

I'm starting to feel bad for all the people that ignore space captain. Of late he's been hysterical.

Maybe they'll learn some day that there is a very good method of ignoring people: the brain!
That way you don't miss out on the fun and skip what you don't like.

I have a ton of people on ignore here, but I've never felt compelled to ignore space captain.

Well, he's a funny fellow.
Especially when people rage and scream how they are fed up and going to ignore him! Or anyone else, for that matter.

Yes, I am probably a poor human being because I like seeing people rage but that's the fun of life.


I am also kinda glad that I pre-ordered Saints Row 3 and Skyrim instead of Rage. Those two games at least guarantee me hours upon hours of fun whereas I'm not sure what I would do with Rage.

Same reason goes for him.

Maybe I'm being stupid - but since when did DRM have anything to do with stopping in-game hacks?

DRM is about making sure ppl pay for the game right? Any game, DRM or not can be subject to in-game hacks...

At last! A temporary cure for ignorance!

So technically I was right.

Well, that one guy from Blizzard says that they technically never called it DRM because they didn't see it as such but that can only mean that they were the opposite of sane the whole time.
It is supposed to stop hacks and yes - no matter how you slice it: it's DRM.

It's funny this comes up as I watched a brilliant show on CBC the other night, The Trouble With Experts - which you can watch online at that link. It is well worth the watch.

Seems that in several studies of 10-30 years by academics that almost all of these so-called experts are wrong over half to two-thirds of the time. They showed one experiement that The Economist did where they asked all the best financial minds and captains of industry to predict where the economy would be in 10 years and then they asked a bunnh of blue collar guys, like garbagemen and such, and 10 years later it turns out the blue collar guys were right and all the so-called experts were wrong.

Yeah but that's because economy is not a science and everything a so-called expert says is just a very vague prediction instead of a prevision. It cannot even be called an educated guess.
