35. Here is what I didn't like about the end Dec 3, 2004, 12:50 IvyMike
 
Secret text, let's hope I don't blow it:
The only thing I didn't like about the ending was that if the G-Man can do what he did, why am I necessary? He's apparently all-powerful, so why am I running around like an idiot doing stuff for him? Add the fact that he always seems to show up in everything Gordan does, micromanaging his every move, and it seems kinda demotivating.

They appear to have included non-Grav Gun weapons.

In my dream DM, that would be unnecessary.

Park your car in front of the neightbor's house whenever you get a chance (assuming you move the car more than once every two days). It's a subtle form of revenge, but there's another reason to do it: they'll have to stop thinking about that stretch of street as "theirs" if they rarely get to use it.

You're not missing anything, the game sucks anyway

Huh? Do you mean the game of "Real Life"? I'm trapped INSIDE of Doom, unable to STOP playing.

I know you're eager to hate on Doom 3, but this doesn't even make sense.

17. I can't quit playing doom 3 Aug 8, 2004, 14:56 IvyMike
 
I can't quit playing...literally. When I quit, doom3 just hangs. I can bring up a process explorer and kill doom3.exe process and quit that way. I can also kill the "~e05.0001" process, which appears to be the macrovision copy protection process, and doom will quit too. Personally, I blame the shoddy copy protection scheme, but I would love to fix it.

Anybody else see/know of this problem?

Oddly enough, this only started happening after I upgraded my video card on Friday.

I would like to add: temperature sensors are notoriously inaccurate; some can be off by 10 degrees or more! So you may want to give yourself some wiggle room with any manufacturer recommendations.

Bart: I just think our veterans deserve a little recognition
Lisa: That's what Veterans Day is for, Bart
Bart: But is that really enough to honour our brave soldiers?
Lisa: They also have memorial day!
Bart: Oh Lisa maybe you're right maybe you're wrong, the important thing is that veterans deserve a day to honour them!
Lisa: They have TWO!
Bart: Well maybe they should have three, I'm Bart Simpson.

53. It is dangerous Jan 24, 2004, 12:57 IvyMike
 
You see, when I got this mission, I went out and killed a bunch of Haitians. Only later did I realize that I was supposed to kill the Haitians IN THE GAME. Oh man, was I embarassed.

I swear that the way that they arrived at OMF 2097 was that at the beginning of development, they simply added 100 years to the current year.

I think you mean "Giving smallpox to the natives for the first time." The native North Americans almost certainly gave syphilis to the Europeans. See http://www.archaeology.org/9701/newsbriefs/syphilis.html

Excellent response. Send this to the editor of the newspaper; I doubt they'll publish it, but there's always a chance.

3. I WISH I had turned into a badass Nov 20, 2003, 12:40 IvyMike
 
I've played violent video games for years, and in spite of my hopes that it would turn me into a total badass, it pretty much just made me into a slightly nerdier guy with good mousing skills.

Out of curiosity, what game is the guy talking about in the article when he says, "The dead bodies are kicked and urinated on."?

11. CMR3 Nov 13, 2003, 16:20 IvyMike
 
I like CMR3. Real rally racing is run one at a time against the clock, so that's not so unrealistic (although being able to race against a "ghost" opponent might be a fun arcade-like addition). There is some suckiness (you can only compete in the seasons as CMR himself in the Focus) but it's still pretty fun.

I've submitted my times via http://www.gametimesonline.com/cmr3.php?C=187&TEAM=&where=standings
, and I'm #1 in US!

Hey! I live in T.O. You just saved me some phone calls. Thanks!

P.S. Which E.B. did you check? The one in the Oaks or the new one across from the Auto Mall?
