323. OMG Mar 14, 2007, 13:07 Tigger
 
This whole thread reminds me of that poor bastard who got banned off Steam for cheating. Anyone remember that?

He got banned for using a hack he claimed he didn't have only to provide a screenshot that showed the hack on his desktop.

News Comments > On Halo 2 & PC Achievements
37. Re: ... Mar 8, 2007, 00:30 Tigger
 
As for Halo 2... fuck Microsoft. If they couldn't deliver it in a reasonable timeframe they shouldn't have bothered - then they decide to screw everyone over by making it Vista exclusive. It's okay for me because I'm already on Vista but that doesn't help the other 99% of gamers that want to play it - if I was to get it I'd have barely anyone to play against online. I certainly won't be buying it, even if it was the best game in the world - I will not support companies that screw over PC users like this (especially Microsoft, who made the PC platform what it is!).

Um, if you are not supporting Microsoft, why are you an early adopter of Vista?

But of more interest, why are you using Windows?

Good point, but did they change the weapons, vehicles, and basic gameplay from the XBOX version? I know they changed the gameplay a bit (to adapt to the different controls), but I doubt they changed the weapons and vehicles. If they sucked on the PC (which I contend they did), they sucked on XBOX as well.

For the Halo PC port:

I think they tweaked the sniper rifle (changed the zooms if I remember)

They added the Fuel Rod Gun

They added Internet Mulitplayer

They TOOK OUT COOP.

I've played through Halo on Xbox in 480p and played through it on PC in 1280x1024. I think PC looked better, but the higher you cranked the graphics the slower it went.

That's not neccessary, all they need are backup generators

Backup generators can't help you when your data lines go down as well.

How about a remote site that can at least provide connectivity to steam so folks can at least play games?

I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit.

It's the only way to be sure.

Test finds retailers selling 'mature' video games to young teens.

And Jack still feels the need to sue the people making the games, instead of solely going after the folks that actually sell it to kids.

OMG - I almost forgot - we are "the most litigious society the planet has ever known".

I love dirt like this first thing in the morning. George compared Shacknews to BitchX in his snarky post. As I recall BitchX was pretty damn accurate on the things they reported.

I miss BitchX. There hasn't been anyone who could get to the bottom of a story while simultaneously finding 3 others.

My license plate often leaves people thinking I'm into quads (as in four-wheelers).

I get asked quite a bit what my plate means, so now I've started out by saying, "Have you ever heard of a game called 'Quake'?"

What would be very cool is if they allowed consumers to host servers for these games.

Jeez guys, quit hating on PS3!

LOL

A virgin.

You want to see some hating? Wait until Derek Smart shows up. He might even show up because his name was mentioned.

I hope the PS3 isn't so expensive. My wife has already taken over the 360 (Zuma has relegated me back to the Xbox and PS2).

I haven't bought a 360 yet simply because of the $59 tag on new games (especially when I can buy most of the same games for my PC for less with all the same features).

Buy them used.

Now Sony releases a ridiculously expensive console

1. An Xbox 360 for 85000 tickets!? Jun 29, 2006, 11:21 Tigger
 
From my days working for Namco, I know that most companies that have redemption tickets value them at about $0.01 each. I think the average is about 25-40 tickets for each $0.25 you spend, this is a reasonable assessment. You may get more tickets if are super good at a game or less tickets if you suck, but the latter is most often true.

This means that if D & B is offering an Xbox 360 for 85000 tickets, that means you can expect to pay somewhere WAY OVER the list price of $299 - $399.
