If anyone wants to gift me their extra copy of Frozen Synapse I'll gift them something of their choosing for $6 or less on STEAM. If not I'll probably buy it before the end of the sale lol Sneaky

Edit: nevermind I bought it

So is the font in Eve still super tiny and not adjustable? My monitor's native resolution is 2048x1152 and Eve is unplayable without adjustable font sizes...playing at butt-ugly 1024x768 or something just isn't a solution. Maybe they have some DLC fonts now lol

@justice7:

WoW is definitely fun if you haven't leveled a character to the cap yet. There are fun quests and places to explore as you gain levels. You will definitely have fun if all you have reached is level 40 up to this point.

Once you reach the cap the game changes into getting the best gear you can get. First you get gear upgrades from 5 man dungeons. Then gear from the badges collected from raids/dungeons and turned into vendors. Then once all that gear is attained you get the best gear from 10/25 man raid drops.

I quit about a month after Cata came out simply because I was tired of grinding for gear. Well, that and the content was raping my priest in pick up groups and I was tired of being blamed for wipes when it was really the unbalanced dungeons to blame.

Freddie Wong is great. Haven't seen any of his videos since the "flowers for blood" video that was so cool. I subscribed to his youtube channel so hopefully won't miss any new ones.

News Comments > WoW Patch Notes
1. Re: WoW Patch Notes Jun 24, 2011, 22:42 Shok
 
I saw a banner ad for WoW, maybe it was here actually, and it was touting their 12 million subscribers. I seriously doubt they still have that many. They sent me a 7 day "come back and get hooked again" email offer a few weeks back. I logged in on a Saturday afternoon in Orgrimmar and there were a lot less players and trade chat was silent. I think I played all of 15 minutes with most of the time chatting with a friend before logging off and not logging back in the rest of the trial period. I've toyed with the idea of leveling up another alt but I'm sure I will just get bored after an hour or so again.

Ugh, that gives me a headache just remembering that. I remember having to go over the load order to free up a few KB to run a new game.

I mostly used QEMM for DOS memory squeezing but I do remember having a plain old bootdisk floppy for Falcon 3 lol

Not 30 years since Ultima4...that came out around 1985-86.

Anyways, that ultimaforever.com website must have exceeded bandwidth or something since its resolving to a generic redirector page now...

Edit: nevermind, it's back up now.

Nice to get a patch (there is still A LOT of issues in the game), but after 5 years, couldn't they finally remove the stupid DRM?

If I remember correctly, the vanilla CoH had no DRM except for online play and even there people could just use Hamachi and play each other. The first expansion and patches to integrate the vanilla version changed all that though. So, to answer your question, they probably have no intention of removing it.

Also, fyi this is like a 4gb+ update download in STEAM...

Funny, the reason I didn't buy it in Target the other day was the DRM message on the box. Well, actually, I rationalized to myself that I have too many damn games already and wouldn't be able to really play it for months anyway so it would be best to just wait for the December sale

Their goal, Prez, is to make the game playable with an atari 2600 joystick.

C'mon, nin, let's not denigrate the Godfather of all gaming input devices. Let's shit on something more appropriate, the original Nintendo controller.

{Insert old man, get off my lawn quote here}

Indeed, that controller was great. I think I actually played more games with the 2600 joystick on my C64 than on the 2600

Also haven't most of the developers who did the older games like Outlaws and Tie Fighter left LA anyway?

Yeah, you are probably right. The last time I googled Darren Stinnet (exec. prod. of Outlaws) he was working on Star Trek online or something. The other guys who worked on the levels, etc. are probably long gone too.

I almost worked at LucasArts. Darren emailed me back in '96 that he liked a multiplayer map I did for Outlaws called Rattlesnake Ravine and invited me out to interview. It was a rough interview but even if I was offered the job it wouldn't have payed much. It was a blast to meet the developers of Outlaws and see the JK2 stuff they were working on before it came out though.

I might play it some more to check out this patch. I quit the week before Christmas but have lots of points accumulated on my WoW Visa reward card now (at least four months of game time credit). I can send you a free 30 days if you want nin

I'm torn though...I have so much more free time without WoW in my life anymore.

$5 for Metro 2033 was too good to refuse, especially since it uses Steam so I just copy and pasted my key from the Gamersgate receipt into the STEAM activate new game dealie. Only about four hours left on the sale now though so get it quick if you want it.
