@ TB.. You never signed up for your free copy of half-life 2 from buying a 9600XT? I got the Halflife 2 stuff and they also let me have all the old halflife one content free as well because 2 was late. I went back and played through 1 again and remembered why Valve rocks.

I bought the game and have loved the gameplay I've had time for. After being burned on MoO III, I was looking for a good 4X Space game. This is it! I also have their other products and love them as well. Window Blinds, Desktop X, anything they do tends to be enjoyable, worth the money, and VERY well supported with quite regular updates.

9. Re: Is this the patch... Sep 21, 2005, 19:21 Crobderg
 
I am most of the way through now and only have the main quests and one side quest from act 2 yet to go. I love the side quests!

I am hoping that this patch finally allows people to go online. I have a fairly standard linksys home network and am unable to get online.

I played DS 1 through about 3 times completely and the expansion through twice. I thoroughly enjoyed it. like reading an airplane book. Not good enough to read anywhere else, but excellent on a plane. I play DS 1 while i was staying in the hospital with my wife and mother (2 separate issues). The game was stellar about hitting the space bar and going off and coming back whenever you want. My biggest complaints with DS 2 are that i can't save and come back to that exact point (but I've gotten over this issue and think it does not hinder the game). The other issue is that i liked grouping my chars and having dif attacks and defenses queued up. This has been replaced with powers.. Powers are fun, but i miss changing formations and group dynamics. i also miss being able to set people to attack or stand their ground or not attack even when provoked. I also miss having more chars to build out. For all these gripes, I love the new and dif game that is DS 2. ..as do my wife and 2 children.. we had to get a second copy and I am hoping this patch allows us to play together online. (I think the LAN option would work, but reaaly want to try online with some of my friends that have bought the game because I raved about it.)

I stopped playing this when my high lvl chars got wiped due to innactivity. Bad design.. I'd rather play with cheaters than lose my hard effort and chars.

74. Truth, on car accidents Jul 19, 2004, 15:34 Crobderg
 
Back before Cell phones, my sister was in a wicked bad accident. She and a friend were driving to school. Friend Wrapped the car around a tree and broke her foot in the process. My sis walk 2 miles back to the nearest house and called an ambulance. Being a good friend, she then rode to the hospital with her friend. Long story short, about 4 or 5 hours later, one of the nurses looked at my sister and asked her if she was alright. Turned out she had completely shattered two of the vertebra in her lower back. Adreneline is an amazing thing. Hence why the EMTs would want you not to move.

6. Re: Better games at release time? Apr 19, 2004, 19:18 Crobderg
 
I must not have gotten it at press time then.. because that was my experience from the beginning, and the expansion was fun too. Similar to reading a book.. it may not have wowed the literati of the gaming world, but it captivated me for long enough to make itworth it's money.. better yet, my wife was able to play and enjoy it the whole way through and we got to play together afterwards. I'm up for any game that makes my wife appreciate gaming more. We are both looking forward to DS II. She actually got excited when i forwarded her the trailer from e3 last year.

no you wouldn't.. Valve was just looking for an excuse not to ship this game. Waiting for steam and better video cards is as much to blame as the code theft.

So I like the racing stripe over further to the left but that image with the news items over the racing stripes looks hideous! As to complaints about vertical space.. I'm running in 1920X1440 and most of the articles only take up a few lines at most and that "big ad" in the center of evertything is a small ad off to the far right for me.

Really bang on job! Stellar work. Looks great! I look forward to seeing it carried to the posts sections as well. Only problem I saw was a big white box at the bottom of the page.

My prayers will be with you and your family. My Girlfriend has been through cancer three times now. Once for her jaw, Once to remove both breasts, and Once for a histerectomy. I try to enjoy each moment with her that I have. My thoughts prayers and understanding are with you.

12. Streaming / Kontiki Jul 16, 2003, 20:17 Crobderg
 
so I tried to stream it and catch the file out of the buffers so I wouldn't have to install the spyware.. The image quality was so poor i ended up installing Kontiki, downloading it, deleting kontiki, and running ad-aware. I am not knowledgeable enough to definitively state that Kontiki is definitely spyware, but ad-aware seemed quite familiar with the program and told me to get rid of it and it's little registry strings too.

33. Re: Tattoo artist Jul 15, 2003, 15:36 Crobderg
 
God, I wish it were true! White boy here.. I have always chuckled at the idiots walking around with another culture's symbols on them without even having a clue what they actually mean. I have no problem with people that honor the Chinese culture getting tattoos that identify them with something they have studied and find to be beautiful, but i can't stand the thought of people using these symbols so lightly. I sort of figured it might be a farce, but damn it's hilarious. I always enjoy telling people what there symbols mean.. not that i have a clue.. next time you see someone sporting Asian writing on their clothing or bodies, ask them if they know what it means.. if they seem at all hesitant.. Fuck with them!
