OnLive says a game they selling through their service has limited supplies? Is that supposed to make people buy it? ROFL.

What a joke.

The game isn't limited, the console is. When you pre-order homefront, you get the console free.

I would never ever use iBuyPower or CyberPower. This comes from someone who's spent the last 15 years building computers and seeing "boutique" stores overcharge and under-deliver. If you can't (or won't) build the PC yourself, get a Dell.

imagine doing a 4 player co-op mission straight from the Aliens movie. Welding doors shut, setting up defenses etc.

No shit, that would be fucking intense. Give it to Valve and let them do it L4D style, with crescendos and whatnot. Alien Swarm is already basically the exact game we need, it just needs to be an FPS.

You can change Alien Swarm to first person mode.

The biggest difference won't necessarily be performance unless you're using very intensive programs/games. However, your 4GB is NOT being fully utilized because a 32bit OS can only use 4GB max (since Vista, the OS can see more, but can NOT use it) and part of this RAM must be reserved for the system meaning none of your applications can touch it. Generally you have about 3.25GB to use in a 32bit OS.

There is another thing to consider when running Windows apps as well, Windows imparts a 2GB memory limit on 32bit apps by default. (this can be changed though at the cost of stability most of the time). So even if you were to use a 64bit OS, if you are running 32bit apps they'll never use more than 2GB anyway. Keep that in mind when gaming. Even today, most games are 32bit.

I lost my own father earlier this year. Although the circumstances were completely different (and i won't go into them), i know how you are feeling right now. I am sorry for your loss. I don't know if you are religious or not so i can't say anything for that part, but at least take consolation in the fact that he's not suffering anymore. I think i speak for most of your community here when i say that we wont mind the news being disrupted for this.

What's kind of sad is that this is actual news because I know of no RTS that continued in the spirit of Total Annihilation. Well, besides TA:Spring..

Ummm Supreme Commander?

When I had adblock disabled here a long time ago a huge annoying flash thingy made infernal noise with no way to close/mute it. That was the last time i ever disabled adblock.. ever.

That was when the ads were handled by UGO. Blue got away from them a few months ago and a lot of disabled adblocker on this site because of it. It's safe now to do so again, he just has normal banner ads now.

I'd love to know how far the designers went in keeping up the extremely refined design, if at all.

Aside from graphics, GSB is basically a one man game. Cliffski made the game and owns/runs the company that sells it.

WHY did they not remake Interstate '76??? That game was awesome, and it hit the Austin Powers thing years before the movie

They made Interstate '82 instead which was horrible from all the reviews. I never personally tried it. I will be buying I76 off GoG.com as SOON as it's available. I have my old CD's but it's a complete bitch to get it to work in Vista.

Blue, if you value your life, do NOT ride a bike and have Hudson leashed to yourself/the bike at the same time. My mother did this about 16 years ago and our dog barely weighed 40lbs. Everything was going fine until out of nowhere the dog decided it wanted to go perpendicular to the bike. While only weighing 40lbs, the force was enough to make my mom lose her balance and land face first into hard asphalt. She was knocked out for 10 or 15 seconds. She was wearing a helmet but that didn't help her face and she got a concussion anyway.

I don't see how a squirrel could possibly move a piece of cinderblock. Must be a raccoon, dog, or deer. Something like that.

I am NOT a fan of the continued link. If a story was "taking up too much space" then i would have just scrolled past it anyway. Clicking another link to see what i DO want to see is annoying at best and leads me to have conspiracy theories on upping ad views at worst.
