It has spoilers and stats, though, in case that bothers you.

88. Exploration Apr 29, 2002, 00:16 Morgan19
 
I don't know about everyone else, but I realized one of the reasons I'm so looking forward to MW. I was watching "The Jeff Corwin Experience" on Animal Planet tonight and he was somewhere in Madagascar, wandering around a forest and going through a waterfall. Like the preview the other day that mentioned finding a pearl at the bottom of a lake, I'm really looking forward to just exploring the world and finding hidden stuff like that: I can't exactly just get up and take a trip to Madagascar, so this is the next best thing. Can't wait, can't wait.

So has anyone picked up the strategy guide yet? I'm interested to hear how it measures up, from what I understand there's little crossover between the manual and the strategy guide so it should have some good info.

I can play it fine. :D;P Just read the first post or do a bit research on your own (what an idea!) instead of blaming it on someone else.

So is Tueday the official date then, or is that the projected "week early" one? One of the reviews mentioned being able to run it acceptably (albeit with heavily lowered settings, I'm sure) on a pIII-600 and a GF1 (*gasp*) so I'm hoping my 1.2Ghz Tbird + GF2 Pro setup will handle it nicely until the 4200 comes out.

1. Getting closer... Apr 25, 2002, 21:26 Morgan19
 
Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait! That new video on TechTV really reminded me of playing Daggerfall for hours on end. (Ahh, back when there was no responsibility. ^_^) And from what I hear the strategy guide came out today? Bathroom reading, lol!

For those people whining about how all the hype is based on nothing more than pretty screenshots and that it'll be bug-laden like Daggerfall, this should shut you up (which has been mentioned in just about every preview prior):

>>While on the topic of how Morrowind compares to Daggerfall it is worth mentioning stability. Daggerfall was a huge game; there is no denying that. The problem was it was possibly too huge. There was too much scope for bugs and although the game developed a big following, non die-hard fans of the game may have been put off by save games that corrupt themselves, impossible to complete quests or random system lock-ups. Despite the preview copy of Morrowind only being in the Beta stage, I can already say stability has improved a great deal over Daggerfall. I havenít had any problem with saved games going wrong, and no system lock-ups. The only thing I have experienced on a fair number of occasions is being dropped back to the desktop. By a fair few I am talking a handful of times in maybe 15 hours of playing the game. Considering the size of the game and the fact this is only a Beta version I think this is very good going and stability looks promising for the final release.<<

lol, I like this anon. A few things:

1) >>not everybody has the time to register on every single
board.<<
That's hardly an excuse. If someone has time to write a post, they have time to register. In any case, that argument was over a few days ago... Let's let it drop.

2) >>But people should still stand behind what they post, I agree with you on that one.<<
Yes, they should.

3) >>As for the #40 anon poster: Men that would rape women tie em up and sell them into slavery deserve a long and
painfull castration. Even those that fantasise about
doing it<<
Well said, well said.

5. Not quite... Apr 25, 2002, 19:22 Morgan19
 
That's not particularly true, for several reasons, the least of which is the word "was." We're talking about a next-gen videocard, not something from the past. If you're trying to run a bunch of hardware and throw a high-end videocard on top of it all then yes, *amount* does matter just as much as if it's an Enermax, for example.

1. PSU (again) Apr 25, 2002, 09:47 Morgan19
 
This is directed towards the person who asked about "too high" a PSU on yesterday's post: Today's review didn't say anything about PSUs (why do they leave that out?) again, so I'm doing a little asking around and'll find out what level it needs since I want to know also.

(EDIT-) Alright, I got an answer of 450W but that does seem a little high to me, especially since a lot of gamers are still running 300-350W PSUs.

(EDIT #2-) A bit more of a realistic answer this time. You should be able to run a GF4 fine on 300W (or higher, obviously) but it'll depend on what other hardware you have and if you're overclocking.

Nope, although you can't really go up into the levels that'd be dangerous anyway. I think the max PSU a regular consumer can pick up now is around 500W or so, and that wouldn't harm anything. And you'll be set for future upgrades.

>>I certainly don't like being lumped in with "stupid anons."<<

The phrase "I don't like" sure sounds like you mentioning something you... uh... don't like. Maybe I'm hallucinating. And I'm really sorry, but you've kinda lost the ground under your argument here. The whole reason you said something about my attitude towards anonymous posters was because, as the quote above illustrates, you got annoyed that you were being lumped in with them so you wanted to say something about it. But then you say:

>>I do not care how others see me. Life is too short to worry about living up to everyone else's standards.<<

Interesting. If you don't care, why bother saying anything about it? If you don't care and, as you say, life is too short, why did you bother wasting 5 minutes posting about it? It sounds like you're just being defensive now because that's a pretty glaring hole in what you're saying. Try to maintain one viewpoint next time. (Aren't debates FUN?)

56. Re: 55 Apr 24, 2002, 12:40 Morgan19
 
Actually you're quite wrong. I use Morgan and Morgan19 everywhere online, and if someone really wanted to find info on me it's not that hard. My point was that people who don't bother registering and make crap comments like "Tihs gam3 sux0rz!!!" don't want to be found and be responsible for their actions. You can't compare the two. If someone asked me to continue a conversation over email I'd mail them address and we'd talk, but I seriously doubt 99% of the anonymous posters would bother. Also, if I register than I'm guessing that Blue or Frans would be able to do something to my account specifically rather than just the IP address. Quite a difference, not just having a name as you seem to think it is.

If you don't like it, why not register? Then you wouldn't have to worry about it. You have every power to change how others see you, so don't complain when a generalization is made that you can make a difference towards.

(EDIT-) You brought up a good point about my info here, but the fact is it's psychological: There can be 20 million anons who reside under the IP anon@208.35 for example, but only one Morgan19, etc. If there's only one of you, you have to fess up to what you do and say. If there's someone else (on the same network as you, for example) then you'd get lumped in with them if they posted. Once again, a huge difference between the two.

In any case, there's now some more info for you about me in my description if you're really that curious, lol.

1. SoF2 Apr 24, 2002, 10:04 Morgan19
 
I'm actually getting fairly interested over this one. After playing the test for a few days, I reinstalled SoF1 after *un*installing it several years ago. My opinion was that it was boring, repetitive, and not really all that fun. But for some reason now (maybe it's after the inundation of HL-clones and thinker shooters), I'm having a blast with SoF and am really looking forward to the sequel. It's not quite as mindless as Serious Sam (fun in its own right) but not as sloooow as some other games. And the walking speed in SoF is actually fast! Hot damn!

1. PSU? Apr 24, 2002, 10:00 Morgan19
 
Dah! I wish reviewers would list what type of power supply they're using, as that's the only thing I'm worried about mucking up the upcoming relationship between a 4200 and my system. The last thing the (expected) hoard of gamers who run out to buy a 4200 are going to need is crashes and freezes every 10 minutes because they don't have a strong enough PSU and don't know it.

Thanks for the compliment, not the best way to begin a post whether you're kidding or not, though. But as for this part:

>>You really shouldn't waste all that energy getting worked up over some nameless person's comments on the internet.<<

...I've heard it before, and it doesn't change a thing. If no one says anything, dorks like that are going to keep going on and on, thinking that they can hide behind the anonymous face of the Internet. So what if I seem to have a passionate opinion? I'd rather start a discussion/argument with people like that and challenge their grandeur of power than just let them giggle like small monkeys with a heap of bananas. Why would you care what I reply to someone else, anyway? Is it wasting your time? Do you have to read it?

The last time I checked, no one has "gotten" me. He's being an idiot, I posted my opinion about it, and it went from there. I could understand if the thread degenerated into a mass of "F*** you you f***ing d*** b*****!! Go to H***!!!" but the fact is, it didn't: he posted easily debatable points so I took him up on it, to which he replied with the dumb fanboy accusation (:|) which says worlds to me. In any case, have I been scarred for life by this (or countless other idiots)? Not paricularly.

I used to be a moderator over at Planet Hardware for a year or so and had to deal with people like him, both registered and anonymous. And you know what I found? A lot of people (probably pimply little preteens in their mom's basement, no doubt) simply don't have the courtesy online that they would in real life. There'll always be people that come here and don't have manners and can't type or spell, but I'd rather not let them slip by every time. I'm not trying to change the world, as one person a few days ago on Blue's said I'd end up crying trying to "fix" the Internet, lol. I'm selective in what I get "worked up" about, things that I think really deserve a good rebuttle. A lot of things I just read and shake my head at how stupid or incosiderate people are: A lot of the stuff written online would NEVER be risked to be said in real life for fear of someone beating the crap out of you. But it happens here.

Point is, I appreciate your warning but I'm not someone who's just around to be sucked in by mediocrity. If I see something I'll disagree with, I'll say so. Period. In the end, your opinion is just about the only thing you have online. I guess that's why some people need to go out of their way to be nasty. No intelligence, no opinion to post of, so they simply troll.

All in all, life goes on and I'm just fine, thanks.

Not necessarily. Previews for games (off the top of my head) like Codename Outbreak, Aquanox, Silver, and a few adventure games trashed them from the get-go. They're not always postive, but the fact that they've given MW praise in most every category (graphics, sound, gameplay, interface, controls, etc. even in *stability*) from just a PREVIEW says volumes. I don't see how anyone can argue that it's going to let people down or even *not* be polished, you have to be really dumb to ignore all this positive growth from Daggerfall.

But stupid Anons will always be stupid Anons.

(EDIT-) And to the person who pointed out about ropes, women, and slaves: Just goes to show that 68.46 doesn't even know about the game before he opened his cavernous mouth. Reading even one preview (rather than just bashing it for immature attention because everyone else is praising it), he'd know about those issues.

And again, someone actually WANTS to rape women in a game? That deserves a community blacklisting just for mentioning it.
