Working IT in this area for almost 10 years - I had many restaurant and bar clients. My brother also ran many kitchens at bars and restaurants, so his friends, plus my friends, plus my clients!? I can't go to any bar in Minneapolis and not know anyone....it is insane.

You are my Minneapolis hero. Love the city, never knew a major player would be a Blues regular, hah!

It's a lot more well-coded than the Steam client itself, surprisingly. Flawlessly integrates with damn near every game in Steam including Bioshock, gotta love that. Better than Xfire in that implementation.

1. Thief 2 Sep 11, 2007, 11:58 Bet
 
There is one of the prime reasons why I'm glad I don't have an 8800 yet. Currently halfway through my Thief 2 replay. No way I'm keeping my 7900GT in this system when that new card gets here. Gotta admire that people love the Looking Glass games even more than I do... I like them so much it doesn't seem possible, until you read a first post like that.

12. Gears of War first? Sep 10, 2007, 19:43 Bet
 
Will be interesting if GoW beats UT3 to the PC. If UT3 is delayed, hopefully it's not to much longer past the 8800-replacement Nvidia card launch. With any luck, both will be in November and Mark Rein is blowing hot air like he always does whenever he talks. That is his job, after all.

People do love giving him their money though. Hump is probably right here, Rein does probably want to keep it that way and make UT3 as great a release as UT2004 was.

Oh heck, didn't have any idea it was only 2 months out. Thought we still had a year to go, awesome!

Will be nice to play on the new videocard in November.

Apparently troubled firefighters and ancient history are cliche now. Only explanation possible.

The Monkey Island flash film is quite brilliant, however!

Incredible site too. Gotta love IOI game sites. The one for Blood Money was very effective as well. It's a shame they don't seem to keep the sites around for long after the game's releases, going to boring status quo sites instead of the inventive ones leading up to release.

Another great Eidos site was the one for Thief 3. Alas, the parts of gaming that we lose once the hype machine moves on...

They actually got a North American publisher for this. When reading about this game a year ago I figured I'd never get to play it. Good to see I was wrong.

3. Wikipedia Sep 5, 2007, 20:30 Bet
 
It's going to take reaching a utopian state before Wikipedia is reliably unbiased for anything people actually like or dislike. Reliable period, gotta check the History page every time you feel like trusting simple facts like calendar dates and years to see if anyone has mucked with them as a joke.

The video game section is a worthless jungle anyway. If an article isn't biased, it's 'cruft' and deleted.

3. Re: Bioshock video card performance Sep 5, 2007, 14:27 Bet
 
They're not consistently-reproduceable benchmarks thanks to the lack of an actual in-game benchmarking utility, so they had to take a chunk of the game and run it over and over manually. That introduces a certain amount of error into the marks, unfortunately.

The Legion Hardware article says they took the very beginning of the game and ran through until you get inside. Doesn't seem to indicate that either article did the more-precise 5x average for manually captured benchmarks, though.

15. Re: expectation that G92 will completely Sep 3, 2007, 23:02 Bet
 
Yea but who going to upgrade there mobo for PCI-E 2.0 just to add a midrange card?

Who needs to? This is looking like just a die-shrink, most likely using it to test the 2.0 bus for their big hitter next year. This would be the same architecture as the G80, just 27% smaller. At least from this bit of unconfirmed news, it's similar to what happened with the 7800 -> 7900 conversion last year.

I'm curious as to whether they'll get 8800GTX performance at 8800GTS price or lower. That's why I jumped on a 7900GT last year, performed as fast as a 7800GTX at 7800GT prices, and then overclocked to stock 7900GTX speeds to boot.

Hoping for a repeat in November, because by then I won't be able to wait anymore - UT3 will FORCE an upgrade so I can get my 1680x1050 eye candy. Bioshock is already pushing it.

Let's see where things wind up down the road once we get beyond the release phase.

I envy your optimism. Lacking the ability to believe in and support a company's product after the company repeatedly offends your intelligence, it's inspiring that someone such as yourself manages such devotion.
