HL1's engine is the Quake engine heavily modified, not Quake 2s engine.

http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/914642.asp << HL2.
http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/921671.asp << Riddick.

Generally i'll head there first and pick out some reviews to read. Just incase some people cba to click, HL2 average 96%, Riddick 93%, and HL2 has alot more reviews on GR than Riddick.

Yeh you can. One of the bugs fixed in the 4.10 is the NFS:U2 bug some people (myself included) got/get where you get a black screen with just headlights/brakelights. Anyhow the 4.10 recommend SP2 but it installs just fine on SP1. I cant imagine a company EVER making driver not work with a version of Windows for no real reason.

I dont really understand how people are having trouble completing the tutorial level. Just keep moving to the left and that triggers events to happen. Now to keep Racing happy, Demo Solution:

At the start follow the instructions given very carefully. Do each move until it tells you to do the next one. You should also be proceeding along the ship. Eventually a massive beam will fall onto the deck knocking a crew mate overboard. Keep fighting. Eventually you get an ingame cinematic of the mast being hit, and a guy falling out of the crows nest. He plummets through the deck taking you with him. Fight you way through the inside of the ship until you get back onto the deck. To your left are some stairs, head up them to fight the boss. Thats the tutorail completed and then you move on to a proper level.}

Actually the demo is a bit longer than that. When to get to the end of the ship section you fight a boss (some woman with 2 swords) and then you start another level, which like the earlier poster said, you have to have a bit of guess work. To start with i tried walking over the spikes like in the first game but quickly realised you have to roll over them. Then at the end, well i assume the end, you fight this massive boss (bout 5x bigger than you). You have to keep on your toes and get round the back of him and hack at his ankles till he go;s down on his knees. Then you use the space bar to run up his back and start pounding at his helmutted head.

I understand what you're saying, but PC Gamer is the biggest PC gaming mag in the UK. They say they've played and completed HL2 and from reading the review i'm inclined to believe they've played what will be the retail release. From reading the review i'm also inclined to believe this game will blow people away.

Just in case anyone is interested PC Gamer in the UK has reviewed HL2 and given it a 96%. From the sounds of things the game is awesome, and the gravity gun is excellent.

Yeh id forgotten about Jade Empire. Should be interesting to see what their 3rd project is. Finally Dragon Age should kick ass. Bioware creating a rule set designed for computer play.. it can only be a good thing

So Obsidian are making KOTOR2 and NWN2.. what are else are Bioware doing apart from Dragons Age (right name)? Still I hope they make some changes for NWN2 from the original.

Great game but like Hunter said the same speed for everything made travelling a bum. I got myself a Titan though which i was quite happy about but exploring was too much of a hassle really. Also not having a garage was quite annoying.

From what ive read the pirates are having no luck with this game either. Even groups like DeVIANCE havnt craked this sucessfully yet and my friends have downloaded ISO's/BIN-CUEs that still install Starforce so go figure heh..

Im sorry, what exactly are you on about? Steam CS = Free. Fusion Pack = Free. CZ Maps = Free. Nothing pirated about what im running. I have the CZ maps cause i play custom servers that use them and so automatically download them. All of the models used in FP are available on the net free anyway and you can find the older FP's for free too. So instead of trying to be a smartarse perhaps next time you'll engage you're brain before hands and think about what you're gonna type.

That's what the Fusion Packs are for, to make CS look good, or rather look better than it does by default. I'm sure that CZ is a good way to get money out of people that dont realise you can just go and download Steam CS, the CZ maps and get FP for better weapons and player models all for free!! They say an idiot is born every minute...

Im suprised no one has commented on the Phantoms internals yet. So anyway, a barton 2500+, nforce 2 mobo, 256mb of ram, 40gb hd and a GeForce FX 5700 Ultra. Its always been known this thing is a PC in a box without the DVD drive, but will Infinium be manufacturing this thing, and are they going to remove the spare ATA controllers from the mainboard. Also how are they going to stop you using the slave port on the single HD to hook up and hack a DVD drive in, or replace the HD? What about the internal headers for firewire and USB 2.0 (if there are any?). Anyway one of the reasons consoles perform so well relative to a PC when they have poorer specs (if we're talking top of the line here) is cause they perform pretty much right next to the hardware level, with no o/s etc to get in the way, and obviously each console has quirks that allow developers to get more performance out of it. Now Phantom is basically just a budget PC in a box, and i guess runs some version of Windows XP. So its performance will be more or less equal to a PC of the same spec. In which case the performance of the thing is going to suck.. I know that it will run at a lower res cause its hooked up to a TV but still. This is coming out in november so theoretically could play Doom 3, HL2 and STALKER.. and i just cant see those specs cutting it. The two most damaging imo are the lack of memory and the tiny HD. Far Cry is 3gb and UT2004 is just a touch over 5.2 gb. On a 40gb HD how do they expect people to actually keep their games. Also with games being this massive for the installation that means you have to keep a copy of the install file AND the game. Added to the fact that downloading 5gb takes a long time. Oh well more flaws.

Yeh here's hoping. Hopefully having played SWG for 4 months will help increase my chances of getting accepted, but who knows how they will pick the first lot of players..

It would be nice if they are all using the same tracker. Dont know if they are but that would be cool.

Moores Law states that CPU speed doubles every 18 months, and the guys at intel reckon Moores law is going to be till about 2015 - 2020 using current silocon based manufacturing processes. So if the quickest Intel CPU is 3.2ghz, in 18 months from now we will have 6.4ghz chips (approx. by 2H 2005), 12.8ghz by the start of 2007, 25.6ghz chips by 2H 2009 etc so in ans to ure question no i dont think we will see a 1thz CPU for a while.
