Is Wolfenstein at $29.99 worth it? I'm on the fence about this one. I may jump on it if there's a bigger drop tomorrow.

I thought Carmack made it clear that the game itself is not browser based, just the finding of servers and the launching of the game is browser based. I can't find it now but I thought he said it during QuakeCon interviews.

Either way, I can't wait to play it.

I'm with you Jerykk. I'd love to see them do another Quake Arena game.

7. Boom Blox Jun 17, 2008, 12:24 babar
I got Boom Blox for my son's 4th birthday and we play it together all the time. The game play is very simple but it's a lot of fun. We haven't started designing our own levels yet...not sure how easy/fun it'll be, but the single player and multi player games are a blast.

XP and Vista are definitely not the same.

Vista is to XP what Win2k was to WinME and Win95 was to Win3.11. A huge change under the hood instead of just incremental upgrades.

Win7 will be to Vista what XP was to Win2k and Win98/WinME was to Win95. An incremental upgrade instead of a huge change under the hood.

With the limited and shitty views avail - it looks like a bad Doom3/Serious Sam.....

I thought it looked like a bad HL2 mod.

15. Re: ... May 19, 2006, 19:58 babar
I played Doom 3 about half way through and quit because I got bored with it. Too dull and repetitive. I then played HL2 next all the way through and was completely blown away at how boring and easy it was. The last level was like a walk through and the final boss was beyond easy. It was such a let down.

So I went back and finished D3 and I have to say I enjoyed the second half of the game much more than I did all of HL2. HL2 was all run and gun without ever worrying about dying but D3 was slow and methodical and I died a lot! Very intense.

After D3 I played Q4 and loved it even more than D3. Q4 was a fun game. It sucks that there aren't more people playing online. It's hard to find good servers with a lot of people but when you do it's a blast.

>And you're saying this is a bad thing, SPINALDEX?

It is a bad thing only for ATI and people that bought their cards since it's not supported by ATI. ATI is trying to convince the world right now that SM3.0 is not needed while at the same time they are putting SM3.0 support into their new chips (R5xx).

Hell hasn't froze over yet. Doom3 got released, not DNF.

49. Highly recommend Lasik Apr 10, 2004, 01:33 babar
I had it done a few years ago when I was 31. I was nearsighted as well and wore contacts and glasses since 3rd grade. I think they told me that my vision was like 20/200 to 20/300 before the surgery...all I remember was my contact prescription was -2.5 in one eye and -2.25 in the other.

I got up from the surgery chair and went into an exam room and was tested at 20/10. I went back the next day, 1 week and 3 months later and each appointment was the same. 20/15 in each eye and 20/10 together.

The only negatives about it for me was for the first 6 months or so it hurt to look at bright lights, a white wall, and especially when I went outside without sunglasses on...that really hurt at first but it went away and I hear it's completely normal. I also don't see as good at night compared to my contacts/glasses. I get the halo effect around lightposts like in Quake 1 but it's not too bad. I don't even notice it anymore.

The pro's completely outweigh the con's. Do it, you won't be sorry. Unless, of course, Flanders was right and your eyeballs just fall out in 10 years.

>I mean, seriously, why do news sites even still devote ANY attention to DNF, 3dRealms OR George Broussard??

No kidding. The only time I even think about DNF is when there's a story about how the game is still vaporware. Otherwise, I don't give it a second thought because I don't believe there ever will be a DNF. If it's done by now, it never will be.

>Are the message boards coming out a little funky for anyone else today?

Yeah, it's because of the long link in post #12.

The Truth, thanks for the 'Z' key! I swear I hit every key on the keyboard, but I guess I missed that one!

>You can't "defeat" terrorism,

Maybe not, but you can stop causing terrorism. The US is guilty of causing terrorism around the world by screwing around with other countries, assassinating world leaders, installing our own puppet regimes, illegally invading countries over lies so we can steal their oil, etc.

If we stopped doing these things, there would be no reason for the terrorists to hate us. You don't see the terrorist bombing the crap out of Canada or Switzerland do you?
