5. Re: GTA pricing Apr 19, 2006, 08:10 Da-Fly
I can't speak for the rest of the EU, but its as expensive as fuck to live in the UK, especially around London. They prolly charge those prices for games because people here are so used to paying over the odds for their stuff.
You septics would crap your pants if you had to pay what we pay for petrol (1 a litre, which is over $8 a gallon) and the average house price is now apparently about 175K (about $315K). You're less likely to get shot here though.

If it's on Steam.... No money for you then.
Might slip on my eye patch and AAAARRRRR me hearties.

This made me laugh, but not as much as the first guy to coin the phrase 'get it from uncle Juarez', which was probably about 3 years ago.

Could someone explain to me why it being illegal to sell adult-oriented software to minors is wrong?

Fuck that. What're the grammar and punctuation like in the bill?

*edit for punctuation and grammar*

They should be happy for this sort of piracy to proliferate as it means people looking to download the film as a file will probably open it, find its a shitty 'camera pointed at cinema screen' copy and might still be tempted to pay to see it.
If you remove this type of piracy, then copies of early dvd rips will be more available. That will result in more lost revenue in comparison. Imo.

Of course they could just try to make better films to tempt people out to the cinema, but wtf do I know...?

Just want to say I for one have thoroughly enjoyed this thread. I don't know why I started reading it as I've got no interest in HLDM, but I'm very glad I stopped by.
I feel like I should pick on someone just to join in. People don't put their system specs in their sigs anymore so I can't have a simpe old fashioned stab at their e-cock.

...The netcode is near flawless...

Q3 netcode has never been bettered imo. Always astounded at the crap net-play that players put up with in other multiplayer games.

18. DM was shiznit Aug 10, 2005, 07:20 Da-Fly
I always found the DM experience in SS games to be pretty much unplayable. I'm sure the guy who posted below who still plays it would disagree, but compared to Quake3, which I was playing at the time, SS:DM stank. I had high hopes for them cracking the problems in the Second Encounter, but it was still the same sort of mess.
The crappy netcode didnt seem to matter in coop, which was excellent, as was the single player stuff.

Is this the patch that makes the game too strong for 17 year-olds?

I would like to apologise on behalf of the UK, to the US and the rest of the world for Crazy Frog.
Both the frog, and anyone involved in marketing and developing the frog are fuck heads.

4. Re: Hmmm interesting Jul 4, 2005, 14:00 Da-Fly
I like 6 hour chunks for $20 when I think about it, so long as each is complete and not dependant on the other

The chunks would have to be slightly dependant, otherwise there'd be no lure for you to pay for the next instalment.

The thing that bothers me most about this concept is that I would almost certainly NOT have saved the world by the end of the first part. When I finish a game I have to have saved the world and then go home with balls the size of hot air balloons. So, for that kick I'd have to keep paying out for all the instalments they throw out.
Maybe they'll at least have some levels in Hell. Whats an FPS without a little stop over in Hell?

Do any of the older mob here remember the horse racing released early on in the life of the ZX Spectrum? I think it was called Derby Day. It was written in basic, so if you gambled away your livelihood you could break into it with the press of a button and give yourself a shitload of money.
It was really dire, but kept us youngsters out of trouble for hours. Played it longer than Counterstrike anyway

Britain is launching a probe into the wildly popular "Crazy Frog" mobile phone ringtone, after complaints that it dupes children into signing up for an expensive subscription plan.

Hope they throw the book at the little twat.
I'm sure if Osama Bin Laden launched his jihad against anyone who had anything to do with the development of Crazy Frog he'd have a lot more global support.

I would encourage you all to stop by the "inside" community at as we already are seeing the players coming back out of the woodwork

Heh, join a really old game and get handed your arse by some peeps who know the maps like backs of their hands.

Reminds me of the last time I found a Quake 2 server for a trip down memory lane. Joined a server for the opportunity to be used to wipe the floor by some peeps who've been living in Q2DM1 solidly for the last 7 years and know every little nook and clit to double jump from to get the megahealth etc and know exactly where you are in a map by the sound you make as you stop to scratch your scrotum.

23. Mobile phones Jun 15, 2005, 13:53 Da-Fly
Most people I see with cell phones over here actually don't keep them on themselves, but put them on their desk and then walk off on some errand leaving the rest of us to be terrorized by the signal.

Peeps that do this need to be harpooned.
I think the comments re. howling ringtones have started due to a pop-up, which I'm glad I haven't seen.
Over here in the UK we've recently had that fucking crazy frog ringtone become the number 1 best selling single. I'm 31 and although I consider myself a fan of QUALITY music I've been keen to keep an eye on whats going on in the top 40. This Crazy fucking frog fuck has signalled to me that I am finally too old to appreciate the pop charts. Kill me now.

20. Nuty Kids in Games Jun 4, 2005, 14:27 Da-Fly
Psycho little girl was awesome, too, just insane.

Yeh, I'm finding kids to be the most disturbing stuff in games/films these days. The worst so far were the kids in the school house of the Painkiller: BooH. They were fucking schiz. Begging to be shot to pieces.

This is a good trailer. Theres so much to it I'm wondering if they'll consider it a poorman's demo. Which would be a shame, cos I'd still want to play a demo before paying full price for it.

what is the game mechanism? how it plays out?

I've only seen a couple of episodes, but I assume in the game you're the character played by that 'help me' guy who melted in Robocop. At some stage in the game you get your arm torn off by a helicopter prop.

Which game had the sniper level that forced you to die several times? You were walking through a wrecked french town, with snipers...

I actually pressed on to finish that level. Later on though, there was a level with the same ridiculous snipers but in the woods, in a blizzard. That was as much fun as growing bamboo up my urethra, so I uninstalled the game right there.

To sign up for emails you have to register, and the register box only has USA & Canada options

Can't you just fill it in with horse shit? This kind of thing is pretty common. The way I see it is, if they don't want to give an option for 'not yanks' then they should expect some horse shit registrations. Shall we all register under the address of the White House?

I wonder if the team at Raven, upon seeing that the President of the United States has registered an interest in receiving email updates on progress with Quake 4, would immediately stand to attention and do one of those really rigid salutes. A bit like the end of Independence Day where the pres himself saves the world and probably the universe.
