I understand all that, it just seems to me that being the first guy on your block to have one of these may do you no good...you're still running a 32 bit OS and 32 bit programs.

If its just for playing HL2 at <<<AMAZING SPEEDS!!!>>> then I think I can wait a bit.

Thanks for the info

I didnt think there was much (or any) software or OS that wasnt for servers that would take advantage of a 64 bit processor...

Is there anyone here waiting to get a 64 bit chip for something? If so, what?

Not being smart ass, I am curious...

Hey, quick thought... did it never rain in the merry old land of Oz?

Again Blue shows off his super-human powers of observation and trivia...

Actually now that you mention it, I thought that the Tin Man got caught in the rain so thats why he got stuck...

The discovery lends support to the suggestion that human cannabis users may be less adept at tasks that require sustained concentration.

HAHAHAHAHAHA, lends support!!!?

They needed to do a complex study to tell them this?

Well I can say with confidence that based on my 15 years of reasearch into this matter smoking pot does different things to different folks but for me I can focus like a laser ("laser").

While smoking the bud doesnt hurt my concentration it can definately make me just not give a rats ass, and that could be percieved as a lack of concentration.



As far as judging American culture based on Bowling for Columbine, thats just plain goofy. Michael Moore is not a moron but he is hardcore hippy slanted. Just remember, its the extremes that sell movie tickets...no one is interested in Average Joe.

The reason Friday the 13th is bad luck is because on Friday, October 13, 1307 at dawn the pope had the Templars rounded up and hung, thousands of them.

The only Friday the 13ths that are special to me are those in October...

If so then I am going to get a trademark on all phrases starting with "The".

Personally I think R2R totally blows. I absolutely never ever play it.

I also dont see how adding different vehicles/weapons/maps is such a big deal when you can get just as good (if not better) free mods like DC and EoD...

SCG, how do you breathe with your head so far in your ass? Or is that why you say such crap...the lack of O2 to the brain? Or maybe just no brain to bring O2 to?

As a paid member of the GG community since 010816 I take personal insult from your comments.

These are GAMERS making games, asshole. This isnt ANOTHER multi-million (or billion) dollar congolmerate rehashing the same garbage over and over and over. I guess when you are playing Quake XXVII you will be wondering where all the original games went.

There are MANY incredibly talented folks at GG making some incredibly cool shit. DIFFERENT games too, with different target audiences.

Check this guy out...

http://www.garagegames.com/mg/snapshot/view.php?qid=580

I dont necessarily agree with the idea of paying to beta, but let me ask you guys a question....

How many "A"-title games have come out in the last few years that require tremendous patching? Thats not paying to beta? At least these guys are honest about it...

I already took it off my HDD...still have 15 days left on my free 30 days too.

Honestly, I also think its fairly technically sound, I have had very few technical problems. They seem to have been getting a handle on the server stability issues...

Too bad its sooooooo boring, repetetive, boring, and repetetive.

I've never gotten to have the fun at the dentist either, but my brother just became a dentist and if he wants my insurance money he better have the gas in the waiting room for me...

I used to go to the back of a frozen yogurt store where my friend worked and suck on the big tank with a straw until me and my friends turned blue in the face...looking back it was kind of not safe but sure was fun

I played this demo a month ago from a magazine demo CD meaning this demo has been done since before the game shipped.

I think you are confused with the MP demo....thats been out a while now (and has more players than retail at any given moment). SP demo is brand new.

Yes, they should be making patches not demos I agree 100%.

Also, I dont know NWO but for big budget garbage I say MS CFS3 takes the cake.

Sounds like Proudfoot needs to get her head out of her ass.

Sounds like CRAW needs a friend or two.

Naw, just fine on the friends, thanks though.

By both of his 'irrate' posts,

MY irate posts? You dont see ME insulting anyone...at least you DIDNT, shit-for-brains.

he didn't have anyone to play with, and ran around trying to find something to do. Going solo doesn't work in PS.

Wow, you sure read well. Can someone please read my previous post to this moron? She cant see the part about joining squads, being under base attack, etc...

OPEN YOUR EYES BEFORE YOUR MOUTH, DIPSHIT.

Panick: CS freaks won't play PS. The CS/BF1942 freaks are the ones flaming it *cough* because they can't afford to pay monthly fee. Nor do they understand -why- they pay that fee.

DrEvil is 100%, you and every other moron fanboi are soooooo ghey for saying that everyone that doesnt like this game is a CS lover. I have NEVER even had that game loaded on any PC I have, nor have I ever seen it other than in mags.

I CAN afford the fee just fine, thanks, I work for a living. Again, you are a DIPSHIT if you think that people dont like this POS because of the fee. If it was good I'd pay $50 or more easy, but I wont pay a dime for trash.

As far as WHY I am supposedly paying this fee, I understand damn well, thanks again brainiac. So let me get your opinion, is it for the completely overworked servers? No, at least those are UP. Maybe its for the other servers, the DOWN ones? DUH.

PS has lots of low points, and lots of high points. The biggest highpoint, that most of the flamers don't like, is the teamwork one. Teamwork is crucial to doing ANYTHING in PS. If you don't work well with others, and think you can just hop in and shoot stuff to be uber, it won't work, aka flaming CS turd-posts.

Again, any dipshit that thinks she can come in a forum and automatically know what games I play and how I play them is going into an area that even Miss Cleo wouldnt venture into. Get a braincell or two. I use teamwork in MANY games I play, including any one of the many games in which I have been in clans. NEVER CS EITHER, MISS CLEO.

The game works fine. Its slow if you 'want' to wait for a capture point. Don't have to sit and drool in the corner kiddies /gasp.

The game works fine when there is no one around. As soon as you get in anything close to a *massive* fight it CPU lags to hell. As far as the captures, its pretty much Murphy's law in that if you leave, someone rehacks it, if you stay and defend you never see a soul. BORING.

As for 'being a newb and getting outgunned', well uh, you should be rank 3 before even leaving the Sanctuary. Guess you didn't visit the firing range and vehicle grounds? At rank 3 you'll have a few points to grab either medium assault + big boom gun, or medium assualt + vehicle. Thats being outgunned? Uber noob.

MR Super-dooper beta tester, guess you havent kept up with it much...you dont get ANY XP for training. Maybe you did in your precious beta but not in retail. Again, learn the facts before you open your noise hole, uber shit-for-brains.

This game is crap. I love getting certs to drive one of the tanks, only to find that I dont have ANY friggin weapons to use, all I can do is chauffeur some non-cert guy around the map so he can get kills. Woohoo. Chauffeur sim. Oh wait, thats what you call TEAMWORK. Fuck that.

$13 a month, is that all?

Variety isnt the problem with the weapons, the problem is that they all feel like a friggin BB gun and do LESS damage. Whats the problem with the weapons? Are you serious? Q: How many 20mm cannon rounds can the average human take? I know this is a game but come on, its ridiculous.

Hotspots icons dont tell you jack shit. Seriously, when I am looking at a map to pick a drop point I want to know how my teams forces are concentrated, where I can go to flank or join a main force or whatever. Hotspots dont tell you any of that info, only where one BB gun is shooting at another BB gun.

Did you join up with a squad?

Yeah...

Did you ride in a Galaxy and hot-drop over an enemy base?

Yeah...big deal, I've been doing similar since Tribes 1 and most recently in BF1942 and DC with MUCH better graphics too.

Did you bail out of a sunderer heavy transport to shoot down strafing aircraft?

Can't say I did...I guess thats one of lifes pleasures I will never know...I've shot strafing aircraft, cant say it did them much harm but then again they didnt hurt me with their 20mm BB guns either so it was usually a stalemate.

Did you cry out "MAN THE WALLS!" when your base came under sttack from enemy forces?

Actually I cried "I PAID $50 FOR THIS?!?! AND THEY WANT HOW MUCH MORE PER MONTH?!?!?"

Then I laughed

Did you fly over the front lines in your reaver and hit the enemy's armour where they least expected it with a volley of rockets?

I sure did. Not as if anyone noticed though...BB rockets?

Then I took my reaver to a base, hacked the console, and then drooled on myself in the corner for 15 minutes waiting till I could go do something else. Woo, hoo. Wee-hah. We are having fun now. So I am told....

I hate this game, will be selling it on eBay ASAP.

The weapons suck worse than Renegade.

Circles are octagons. OCTAGONS! I know there are some sacrifices to be made but still...

I hate the entire certification thing too. If I encounter anyone BUT another newb like myself then I am toast, I just cant match up the firepower.

When I look at a map to choose a spawnpoint, I have ABSOLUTELY no friggin clue how many of my empire's forces are in what locations.

Also, the CoF thing...normally I dont care too much if its not excessive and oversimplified, unfortunately in Planetside the Cone of Fire IS excessive and oversimplified.

Some of you guys say that it was fun for a while but then it got boring. You guys are easily entertained. I dont think it was EVER fun. I almost dozed off at my keyboard...that kind of thing normally makes a guy fell old (and overworked) but in this case it was sheer boredom.

I was tempted, I HAD to see for myself. Damn, I wish I had listened...

$13 a month? Rather spend it on the movie and the soda. Or drugs, booze, and women. Hell, anything but this. I MIGHT play this game if THEY paid ME around $25/hr plus health insurance.

This is my second attempt at MMOL games that are pay to play. My first was WW2OL. Complete crap. Now this. Both times I had to pay for the client software which I wouldnt even use as coasters out of embarasement.

I am going to be WAY hard pressed to try this crap out again.
