I just remember everyone complaining about the potential for Steam's patcher to mess up everyone's game. And I also remember me arguing the very nature of Steam allows Valve to quick fix such issues.

<Notes that the issue was resolved via Steam less than a few hours after the release>

=p

Heh, actually its not very laggy.
Just turn off the "hide full servers" filter...
There are tons of fast servers (pings < 100), but they fill up immediately...
There just arent enough good hosts. All that is left are the 56k'er hosting 32 player games. =\

No. It's exactly as if a movie theater went to Best Buy and bought 7 copies of a movie and charged 7 people $8 each to view it. After that movie, they could sell another 7 tickets for $8. It is (or should be) a per computer license -- or a per seat license in your analogy.
Sounds illegal to me...
As for movie theaters, they are charged per screen per day I believe, thus taking into account both capacity and number of showings.

This game is sounding more and more like Troika's other RPGs: great, but with seriously detracting bugs. I remember telling myself I wouldn't play any more ToEE till the promised patch arrived... only to give up waiting and finish the game. The patch appeared over two months later. =(

I don't play MMOs, but I have to ask:
What is a "raid" and how can one last for 13 hours? Do you have to be online for all 13 hours straight?

No wonder the Weekly World News has the circulation it has.
Weekly World News is hi-larious...
"Japanese jumping up and down to knock world out of orbit!"
With a headline like that (and a request that US readers jump up and down on a certain day to help counteract the effects) how can you not love it?

The "mild habanero" was developed by A&M... figures.

Oh yeah, happy birthday and all that. My present is the change behind your seat cushions. =D

I wonder if people are just using bots that scan the news for "Half-Life 2" or "Steam" and automatically post complaints about Valve/Steam?

Mmmm Yoda mod.
The best part were the snarks that looked exactly like the player models (Yoda of course).

Ahh... mention of Rocket Crowbar and the Yoda mod in the same thread is starting to bring back memories...
Anyone remember Boxwars...? The mod where all the player models were boxes in maps filled with boxes?

That was one of the great things about HL... there were so many players that even those awsomely crappy mods had players. =D

Every LAN party I go to we end up getting bored with CS and boot up HLDM or rocket crowbar for some insane fun.
Woo rocket crowbar.

To get offline mode to work, you have to have 'remember password' checked, and you have to log into Steam at least once successfully once it's checked. Why? Hell if I know. Talk to Valve.
The reason for this is the "remember password" option implies that anyone who uses your computer is free to use your Steam account. If this is *not* checked, then Steam will not allow others to use your account, online or not. Because there is no way to "authorize" a user offline, Valve could have either allowed everyone to use your account offline, or no one. Because leaving the "remember password" option unchecked implies you do not want everyone at the computer to be able to access your account, it makes sense to allow no one to do so.

If you're a soldier fighting an enemy that uses terrorist tactics, you're wounded yourself, probably fearful of your own life, in constant fear of bodies being trapped or other unlawful conduct, and you come across a guy that is obviously not dead, you don't know he is a prisoner already, you just had to re-take this mosque because they had been reportedly re-taken by insurgents. Surely you can see how easily a bad judgement call can be made in such circumstances.

I would say that just goes to show the immorality of war in general.

What happened? An innocent was shot. Why? Doubtlessly there are dozens of factors, as mentioned by DrEvil. What was the direct cause of these factors? War.

This incident is being emphasized because journalists see something that is unjust and wrong. Under the circumstances, however, the soldiers actions are understandable... which is exactly what makes those circumstances immoral.

Hrm, on this FPS vs RPG business...
Can't I have both?

I want a game that succeeds as both an RPG with a story to tell and NPCs to interact with and as an action game with responsive controls and engaging, interesting action.

System Shock 2 anyone? Deus Ex was a bit clunky in the action department, but it was still a decent combat engine. Nox is a bit light on RPG elements, but really succeeds with the action. All three are truly excellent games, in my opinion.
