Does anyone know how much DX:IW made or is making? I'd really like to believe that after they made such a crappy PC product that it didn't sell too well. One of the biggest game letdowns I've ever experienced.

What they oughta do is auction off beta test slots. Sure, it'd get a lot of people mad, but they'd make a bundle.

On another note, I wonder how many people make dupe applications and other evil tricks.

It's pretty pathetic that people think Slipknot is metal these days. I thought they were going to die with all the other nu-metal bands, but apparently not.

If anyone wants to listen to real metal, I suggest Kreator and Nevermore for starters.

Or the first thing you do once you install is hit windows update, and update. If you do not load up any mail software, or visit any naughty sites with a non patched IE, it would be no trouble. Not like once you start windows it sends a signal to the hacker’s database, and they start at you!
Doesn't Blaster just spread itself to random IP addresses? If you don't have the patch, you'll get infected as soon as some infected computer happens to pick your IP address. At least that's my understanding of it.

I skimmed the comments and it didn't look like anyone said this, but sorry if this is redundant.

Blue: Before you upgrade, burn a CD or something with the necessary service packs and other upgrades that immunize your computer against stuff like Blaster. Otherwise the second you put it on the internet, it'll get flooded (and infected) with virus/worm traffic. This happened to one of my friend's laptops. It's pretty pathetic that a clean XP install is so vulnerable on the internet, but them's the breaks.

It's been months since the release of Frozen Throne and Blizzard has yet to cough up the next episode. What's the deal?

I don't have to worry about Half Life 2 being delayed!

Sssshhhh! You're gonna jinx it!

I agree with post #1, though, they've been delaying games right and left recently. I hope it's for good reason.

...but I wanna play around with the new UnrealEd. Will it be included in Unreal II? Will I be able to make single-player maps only?

I wanna wait until the Hammers come out to upgrade my 900 MHz Athlon. I bet this 64-bit binary is gonna be pretty spiffy...I hope it extends to all the Unreal licensed games.

Gee, Blue, it's nice to hear about case-modding and all but there are some things you just don't talk about with strangers.

I wonder what happens if you sneak up on the guy who's taking a whiz from the front. I sure hope they have some sort of Sims-style obscuring. One can only hope they didn't actually model his John Thomas.

Of course I bit the bullet and got a GeForce3 but it did chap my hide that I was upgrading to a card from a company that bought the 3dfx remains and were sitting on them - thus making me upgrade. Some people don't want to upgrade from VoodooX because the "best" option is a good GeForce board and then they've been forced up upgrade because of business politics.

Well, I dunno, I don't think it would be a wise move on nVidia's part to continue supporting Voodoo cards. They only have a set number of engineers (some of whom are from 3dfx, I'll grant ya), and they can't afford to have some of them tinker with cards that aren't making the company money any more.

Remember when John Carmack said that nVidia's lagging a bit behind ATI because they spent resources on their XBox card? That's why they have to put their engineers on either developing new technology or writing drivers for their UDA. It just doesn't make business sense to support old hardware with unique drivers. Especially in the 3d card industry, where a slight stumble can mean the end of your business (as 3dfx found out).

Oh, and thanks for dropping by, Mark.

I was running on a Voodoo5 until about 2 weeks ago, when I finally got a GeForce4 Ti4200 for only $170. Voodoo5's ran Unreal Tournament like nobody's business, because of Glide. I bet there are a good deal of loyal UT players who still use Voodoo cards.

So please, if you're finding games for under $50, share the wealth!

Well, both Serious Sam games have been priced at $20. Now that's a lot of bang for yer buck!

If everyone sat at their computers all day and used Linux, then there would be no way to spread human viruses!

So I'm gonna do my duty to humanity today and upgrade to Mandrake 8.2. It's for the human race as a whole!
