Delayed in Australia, so they can add 30 USD onto the price.

oh well.. guess it had to happen soon..
The beta was fun, I enjoyed parts of it but right now I can't see it lasting for me. It was a choice of Guild Wars or WoW for me, and right now with the server issues, plus the 500-600ms average ping times for me in Australia, I'm afraid that Guild Wars has won out.

All the better that GW is cheaper and just as much fun then :-)

All the best to those that continue in WoW.

Hahaha, I just lost it laughing my ass off.. this has to be the BEST quote ever by a software company!

"Microsoft is currently engaged in a full scale investigation and to those foolish enough to partake in this piracy, you will soon witness the firepower of this fully operational battle station.”

FANTASTIC!

I love Bungie :-P
Even if they did make Marathon... HEH

Honestly, I have the highest respect for rally drivers in the world, as what they do truly is amazing. To me it is the peak of motorsports racing and the best of drivers... ( except for marcus gronholm.. he's just a tosser :-P )

However, most of the games leave a lot to be desired.. I recently tried Rallysport Challenge 2 on xbox and couldn't believe they made the physics so bad, to the point it's not even enjoyable to play. Colin McRae 03 and 04 are a blur; the physics always made the car 'pop-up' off the road in weird ways. CMR02 was much the same, but I could endure that for a while.

Before that I was playing Rally Champ 2000 on PC which wasn't too bad for physics, but lacked interesting multiplayer. Even way before that was Rally Masters, which was hilarious multiplayer, had very dodgy physics, but was really just great fun

I would have to say however that Gran Turismo on PSX had the right physics for me. It was very challenging when it came to licenses and driving correctly...
DTM Race driver 2 is the only recent game that has come close to that recently, but I have yet to try the multiplayer side. I think Richard Burns Rally looks fantastic! I'll have to grab a copy for xbox and give it a good go and hope they finally get physics right in a rally game

What it comes down to is YES, there are heaps of rally games, and for the most part they still get better. There IS a long way to go tho! Track detail and complexity is improving immensely recently, but it's always the physics that counts, and that still has massive amounts of improvements available.

phew, that was a big blurb

I tried the single player and thought it was fantastic... Significantly different from most other RTS, and even though I need to upgrade my system after seeing it run it looks fantastic..

Will give this multiplayer a run however, and see how it goes. I hope it's as innovative as it looks!

edit: oh and yes, it has a steep learning curve, but once you work everything out it's worth the time learning!

HELL yeah, this should have been a topic on it's own..

It's huge news ATI releasing the X800's.. Another big battle between nVidia and ATI again.. (NO I'm not fanboying either way!)

This is great for consumers.. now for a closer look at which will be my next card :-))

btw, Toms Hardware has a good write-up again... better than those posted I find.

I gave the demo a fair try, and thought it was fantastic...

Once you learn what's going on with each unit and how to use them, it's a challenging, quick game. It has a steep learning curve at the beginning, as it has some fundamental differences from other RTS, which is why I think many people are put off, or from first look they think it is the same. That also happens to be the exact reason I like it.. it's different, and they've tried to move away from the 'standard rts'

My suggestion is try the demo for yourself, but don't expect to know everything about it in under 5 minutes..

I just hope the Russian lads at 1C/KD-Labs get their butt in gear working on Perimeter!

Thats one game that I am expecting not to disappoint! The video looks schmick!

Yah the PunkBuster & nVidia driver issue from what I have seen is only with the new "ForceWare" drivers... (atleast the 52.16 drivers I was using with my GF4 ti4600)

I just recently had a big fight getting Enemy Territory to work on the net, with PB enabled servers.. I could start my own server, with PB on too, or play for ages on a LAN no problems, but as soon as I join that net PB server, total lock up within 5 seconds of playing (many people have had the same problem). The "/pb_system 1" only seemed to extend the 5 second time to about 60-90 seconds before the total lock..

Unfortunately, the only true fix, was to revert back to older 45.23 drivers :-( These have known rendering issues however (see tomshardware.com)

I was hoping the new drivers would fix the issue, but so far it doesn't sound like it :-(

I can see from nVidia's point, they say "well the game runs fine without PB" and from PB's point, they say "Well the game runs fine with earlier drivers."

Someone needs to fix it :-\
