Sad that so few people seem to be aware of Temple of Elemental Evil.Which I find rather strange, considering that there has been extensive coverage of it. And Troika's other game in production (Vampire) made the cover of PCG last month.
Temple of Elemental Evil - Er...I have no idea what this is.It's a single player 3d turn-based D&D rpg from the creators of Fallout. It's also following D&D rules almost to the letter.
The new moves are okay but I think they may overcomplicate MP. Too many things to do kind of take away from the fun and simplicity of say Q3 MP.Lightsabers are mostly used in Duel MP, though. Which has never been simple to be good at.
I was just looking through the readme and apparently there are a whole lot more lightsaber moves. The thing is, I didn't pick up on them at all while playing which leads me to believe that the key combos are gonna be a pain in the ass to memorize.
Given the performance issues with lightsaber combat the games main selling point is essentially broken.Huh? I didn't have any performance problems on my GeForce2 Ultra.
And by the way, what the hell is with Minnesota? I don't know if you've seen Bowling for Columbine, but they really produce some messed up folksI don't know if you've looked into the accuracy of Bowling for Columbine, but it would appear that so does Michigan. Namely, the liar Michael Moore himself.
Rag doll. That's all well and good, but I'm sick of shooters not gibbing when the enemy should be gibbed (Brute Force/Halo). Yea yea, they're console, but still. Even in the HL vid from the other day no gibs.It's not that the developers can't do such a thing. It's that they usually won't. Ghoul2 has been available for quite some time, but you don't see developers jumping to use it because it's a little too realistic in violence.
Pre Gold liar with the 1.0 version, DUDE you lie so bad! the leak was 0.6.6.something.He's talking about the Pre-Gold edition that was given away at some LAN.
Still, it's a rather peculiar sequence of events. Valve was screaming how it was all somebody else's fault, and now, without either Microsoft or Nvidia actually doing anything about it, it suddenly works?I don't remember Valve screaming...
So to be honest to everybody, who is really going to play with all the detail on, with fsaa engaged?Radeon owners.
As if game dev companies were so organized and nefarious.But you guys are nefarious! With your Dungeons & Dragons and Ultima 6 t-shirts. Proletariat, all of you!
On a side note, does anyone reccommend getting an IPod?I'm personally looking at the Nomad Zen NX lately (30gb, replacable cellphone-style battery, 14 hour battery life, USB 2.0), though my friend Tim has an oldschool iPod, and I'll say that you can't go wrong with it.
also i see people on this very forum talk about having to downgrade their catalyst drivers to play certain games and other problems...Actually I had to downgrade my Detonators for a long time because they weren't working right with XP.
If you want to know how I knew about reformatting is cause that is what my one friend had to do to get it to work (this is what he found out from other people who've had the same problems too). Yes after when he got it cleaned up it worked like a charm, but are you willing to go through that much hassle?Actually yes, I'm very willing to go through that much hassle, if it means that I get the graphical quality that ATI has over Nvidia.
There have been no such statements anywhere on the Ati website.Actually, the tagline for the 9600 on the website is "Welcome to the world of DirectX 9".
