I forgot about Tribes. OK. Brings back memories about first learning skiing. I thought I was a genius when I first discovered it.

I didn't get quite the same level of satisfaction from Tribes, but it was still revolutionary.


Tribes was incredible, but it was the red headed step child (and my guilty pleasure) in the clanning circles.

I don't think anything will ever compare to QWCTF/ThreewaveCTF when it first came out.

Insane-o offhand grappling hooks and chasing down people carrying keys was absolutely the best time I ever had in gaming.

Nobody had ever experienced anything like that.

I think it's impossible to get back there simply because it was all new.


Have to agree -- the days of pure individual skill, nutty power-ups and grappling hooks are gone (for now). Quakelive captures the skill part -- but nothing can compare to being a part of it during its glory.

I played more QWTF than CTF, but it was a tie between lithium and threewave for grappling goodness.

Sure, all computer games are just like all drawn art but we're talking general meaning of 'cartoony'.

'Cartoony' in eq wasn't silly, it was designed to look serious and realistic as possible at the time.

EQ1 had graphics limitations. It was boxy but not cartoony. And gameplay was hardcore, only tough mmo to date most of you would cry like babes trying to play it at the time.

Also had lots of actual roleplaying, another aspect lost among the new generation of gamers.

Because they're fucking nuts? The enemy of my enemy is not my friend if he's also my enemy. Those guys are not going to do anything good for the country. They just have a different plan for how to fuck things up in a way that suits their unbelievably insane base.

Because they stand up for what they believe which happens to be spot on (/cough obamacare. /cough they were right).

And while you obviously don't realize it now there's a majority of citizens who disagree with the majority of government lifers. You'll realize soon enough though.

DJ focuses on the music production of things (from what it appears) as do I when it comes to soundcards, and unless you are doing movie music you never piss with 5.1 just stereo.

But he's correct in saying that creative makes shit cards (for music/production) - they are good for games and directional sound but not for purity of sound as an audiophile or producer. Most wouldn't tell a difference as a listener anyway so just go with what you like.

On a related note I don't need quality sound for games, my 5:1 game setup is purely for knowing exactly where you are so I can kick your ass the best.

This is news? There have been reports of this for years with the "gov" spying on WoW "Terrorists" (gold farmers?). Probably listening in to all the sexting going on in the Ironforge tramways.


9/11 is almost irrelevent in terms of conspiracy theories at this point. There is plenty of in your face evidence out there to not trust any government agency.

Don't tell the liberal base that, they put ALL their trust into the government - they love it!

Soundcards were a must for me from 90s to about mid 2k. Now the onboards of any decent Mobo is solid and fairly standardized.

If you do anything substantial with DAWs obviously you need a soundcard and not one designed for gamers. But you also need flat response monitors or the entire setup is wasted.

I love MS making moves like this. Just helps everyone move to linux boxes. Because while many people will prefer Windows 7 over most linux OS's, they would generally prefer a linux OS over a Win8 one. And if they wouldn't they just don't know better, or just enjoy pulling their hair out and paying stupid amounts of money for Office apps...

While you have a point Suppa, it's certainly not in disbelief of my point which is not related to your reply at all.

I never had a deep love of nintendo games, never owned a nintendo hardware or game until the Wii. I grew up on the atari2600 and moved onto ti-99, then c64, amiga, 386 etc, nintendo holds no nostalgia factor for me.

However I appreciate simple family games as I have a family. And nintendo, whether people like it or not, has the bulk of family games - regardless of sticking to whatever formula people expect. They have the majority of family games And that's the reason I support them, has nothing to do with their track record or my own idea of what direction they should go.

I also appreciate and thrive on hardcore games, and the PC is the only platform for being a hardcore gamer.

So what are you supporting if you go with a xbone or ps4? Mediocre pc hardware with gimped controls, shitty frame locks and overpriced across the board. To each their own.

I really don't understand the whole thing about a competition between the Wii U and the other "next gen" consoles. I currently have a ps3, xbox360, and Wii... not to mention a couple of 3ds's.

My first "next gen" console purchase was a Wii U, because there just isn't any compelling reason for me to buy a PS4 or XBox1 right now.

I really like the Wii U, and my kids absolutely love it. Honestly, most people will snub the Wii U for not being the same spec as other machines, but that is just an elitist thing. The games we have on it are fun as hell, and neither me or my kids care if the graphics are not super high end.

There is nothing wrong with Nintendo. What is wrong is that most gamers today want super competitive, graphically dazzling titles that they can say they are awesome in. I doubt any of the Madden 2148 or COD 18 players would ever look at Pikmin or Mario titles, even though those games are great fun.

I've owned Nintendos since the NES, and I have loved every system. It saddens me that there are not enough gamers that genuinely appreciate the types of fun quirky games that make Nintendo consoles a must buy in my household.

We're a dying breed Stanly... The guys who can both enjoy simple family games yet absolutely obliterate 'the fad gamer' in some PC quakelive. Or... get obliterated by current strong clanners without any rage whatsoever, just appreciation.

What the Hell Is Wrong With Nintendo?

According to Axis, nothing. Nintendo consoles and games are the perfect counterpoint to the PC.

Oh cmon now JD, I've been plenty vocal about Nintendo's many shortcomings. But I certainly didn't join the gloom and doom bandwagon of internet sheepdom.

I also knew that the 'nextgen' ps4xbone consoles weren't much a stretch better, in some cases worse as they are simply a watered down PC with shittier controls.

I like quality games regardless of where they come from. I consider top quality indie games like PoE or Minecraft. Top quality AAA games like TF2 or Baldurs Gate.

Your cup of tea or not, top quality games have consistent support on top of an engaging gameplay experience per game.

The cooldown timer is 20 seconds, they implemented it to stop the servers getting overloaded with requests as some had it auto-oos which is against the tos anyway.

I barely use the oos command unless I'm forced to target a mob like a boss, once you figure out it's the mob targeting that causes most desyncs you'll almost never need to /oos.

If their servers had enough hamsters, that wouldn't be an issue and/or we wouldn't need /oos. And I'm not sure you realize how ridiculous it is to suggest people don't click on monsters in an ARPG...

It's not raw power, its the way they've made the system to avoid client-side hacks, all the hamsters in the world won't help.

However... I'm not sure you don't realize how ridiculously easy it is to avoid clicking mobs with most builds the vast majority of the time playing. But if you wanna desync outta HC you go right ahead, plenty do. I'm just offering the ONLY SOLUTION there is, not 'suggesting' anything.
