5. Olympics are not a sport.. Feb 19, 2006, 01:19 jeffmd
..and thus are not fun.

Olympics are a test of athleticism. Sure we have a few areas like hockey, but we have entire games based on that. The rest of it is just a test of strength, stamina, and skill at what ever the sport entails. Something impossible to translate to a video game, since the whole point of it is lost.

1. backbones arnt the problem... Feb 19, 2006, 01:15 jeffmd
If you want anonymous, use a proxy. If you want security, use encryption. A backboneless internet is possible.. but no one would want it. It would suck.. it would suck for those right next to a popular site. Imagin if world of warcraft servers were in san fran and everyone in the city being forced to foot the bill and have slow connections to host it.

3. Re: Far Cry PC vs 360 video. Feb 11, 2006, 19:36 jeffmd
People are still playing farcry on pc? Didn't that game reach the epitome of its graphics with the 9800 (save some minor SM3.0 optimization from a patch, no real new content like new textures)? I should damn well HOPE it looks like a current generation title if they bring it out NOW.

Wonder if we will see a PC port of it though, it looks hot on the 360 (I system I will prolly end up buying, I just don't know when).

I ordered evga's superclocked 7800gs, might even be here by tomarow. I have a 2800XP and from my experience and what I read, this is still a fine cpu for even todays games. (keep in mind too, I am upgrading from a 9600xt. I should expect this $300 investment to bring me a worlds of difference even if I am not getting the full speed the video card is capable of)

Also I am a beliver of buying a good mobo, that pretty much kills any of those combos they sell with pcie video cards today.

Comparativly to pcie video cards, the pcie pulls better becnhmarks, sure, you have faster cpus at the same time too. But in comparison to other agp solutions, the 7800gs hauls ass. You need the overclocked version to edge out the beefy TI 850xt pe, but at the same time you get SM3.0 and all the series 7 enhancements yielding a nicer looking image. That makes the 7800gs way more attractive then ati's agp cards. (I am an ati fan, but when I needed to upgrade my 9600xt, I really made it a point to find a card that would support all the effects of todays and tomarows games to maximise the life of the card. When reading that halflife 2 would probably be the first and last HDR the SM2.0 would see, I made SM3.0 a requirement. That pretty much nixed any chances ati had in the agp realm. :/)

well depends. If its new content, sure, but BF2 seems like it would feature graphics built on top of the exhisting PC version.

It's funny when people think the new next gen games are actually pre rendered.

hey guys.. you know every single unreal 2007 shot thats been out now? thats in game footage! Those are ingame character models.. those are the maps that will be in the game (well mostly, we allways find those maps that dont seem to make it in, dont we?).

It does look sweet.. and I was going to say "I wonder if they will provide an update to the pc version so users with the top end cards can also bask in the new graphic goodness", but apparently it isn't going to be BF as we know it on pc, but instead an xbox version (not a port). So there may be allowances to make it look that good (not as many players on screen at once, not as big of maps). kinda like how the last unreal game was.

35. meh.. Jan 2, 2006, 19:34 jeffmd
Unreal's graphics were bad ass. And the game rocked too. UT when I first saw the screenshots looked nice (but at that point, I thought it was just a free add on to unreal too). when it finally got released and quake3 had been out, I didn't care for it. UT lacked quite a bit in its character, and the engine didn't have anything special really. Nothing like quake3's curved surfaces (why the hell has that droped compleatly off the face of the earth? Even today games are plagued with the crapiest looking arched windows and crap) and high resolution textures. UT levels were VERY bland looking with repeated textures everywhere. Game play wise it was pretty good.. but so was unreal and all the quake games...well.. 2 being the low point.

How ever I am a HUGE fan of UT2k3 and 4 and will have a nice x800xt waiting for the bundle of joy known as ut2k7 when it comes out!

Hey, blue.. when are you going to lrn2link!

Aside from screwing the ati link up like most noobs do (though I think ati sucks too for clamping this hard down on their pages from being linked), one of my biggest pieves with this site is that you never open a new window on a link. Isn't taking people away from the site the LEAST desired action both you and the user could want?

lol, hope they are including links to the bittorrent sites to download the GAMES for your just boight dreamcast, cause they are getting a bit hard to find allready. You won't find them anywhere as new titles, and places with used sections like EB just don't give it the shelf space anymore.

wow they ditched the control panel? Soooo lame! Guess I wont be jumping right onto 5.12 then. I with you guys.. screw CCC. For one, that shit has NEVER managed to keep its menu boarders and windows lined up correctly. Amature code. Second, it takes twice as long to load cause of all the graphic data, AND it takes time to initialise the stupid effects.

well I give it 2 driver revisions before we chew their ass out enough to bring back cp.. or someone else will release a cp for us.
