yep, rfactor is good stuff, pretty much whatever kind of racing you want to do, from karts to f1 to nascar to sports cars to rally to lawnmower racing, its in there. More mods than you can shake a stick at. Great resource here:

you get:

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
Half-Life 2: Episode One
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
Half-Life Deathmatch: Source

in other words, if you bought hl2 already, you get 4-6 hours of game for $20.

If you haven't its an ok deal, hl dm is kinda fun.

Be nice if there was a price break for those who bought hl2.

Seems like a lot.
I know, I'll convert my dollars to pounds then...no that won't work.

Its the price of 4 overpriced starbucks uber-coffees, which just goes to show that its overpriced. bah. Its the principle of the thing, dammit, not the $5.

Thanks for the torrent link, my connections been buggy so have come back from work with the dl half done twice now, frustrating. Fortunately the torrent picked up right where my previous attempt left off. Sweet!

P2P is a more effective distribution system but goddamn, that was fast. It was like 2 days ago it went gold.

aside from the media player never loading when i clicked the "high" res button...it was fine. Funny that a high-profile site like that won't work with firefox, but it worked great in ie..

Cool to see a little parkour action in a bond film, hah.

not worth buying, still worth playing eh?
If you've been "stung" by every game in the series it might be time to consider another type of game. Personally, I've enjoyed them all.

yep, rbr's just too hardcore and perfect for most people though. Too bad the developers will never have the chance to build on that amazing achievement ..sigh.

look up rsrbr2 though, adds a bunch of cars, turns a bunch of tracks to tarmac, etc etc.

if you want the closest thing to "real racing", probably rfactor nor live for speed are the correct choice, both have a bunch of fake cars, excellent online capabilities, decent (and very similar) physics, and a bit of a DIY spirit, with the main difference being the moddability of rfactor. Also, rfactor's been out for 6 months, live for speed ~4 times that. And rfactor already has more tracks.
Richard burns rally is the closest to real racing currently available, but it'll make u cry, ....just like real racing

just would like to point out that this demo is indeed a waste of time for anyone looking for a RBR/GPL/N2003/GTR/ etc type of experience. I tried to like it, but news flash to codemasters: it is no longer an acceptable gameplay mechanic to artificially slow down the car when it is on the grass. If anything, you make it extremely difficult to remain in control of the car. Think wet grass. That slowdown crap is so sega genesis era its not even funny. Oh, and leaving autobrakes (so that i will be sure to make every corner without hitting the brakes) on after the player selects PRO SIM MODE is stupid.

Oh yes, so is not saving settings when the player leaves the game, making player reset controller setup EVERY TIME THEY START THE GAME is also, yes, stupid.

I would also like to note that making it impossible to "tweak" settings (like map a button) without restarting the game is yes, also stupid. The ole "reconfigure controls completely every time u start the game" just makes it that much sweeter.

just had to get this off my chest. WHY OH WHY CANT THIS GAME BE GOOD, I LOVE THE IDEA AND THE GRAPHICS AND ALL THE CARS, STEAL OR BUY RBR'S PHYSICS, OR JUST BUY A CLUE. GODDDDAMMIT SO FRUSTRATING.

3rd the driving force pro, works great on my pc. here's the drivers: http://www.wingmanteam.com/latest_software/latest_soft_xp.htm


you can set the rotation to whatever you want, but 900 degrees is possible. Pedals are decent, not as good as the ActLabs performance pedals, but those aren't made anymore afaik.

3rd Rfactor, but I think Richard burns rally is the current physics king, just amazing. Need a speedy pc to make it run properly though, which makes a big difference as to whether the car is controllable. Amazing game, too bad its so hard to mod. Rfactor doesnt have that problem

check ask.metafilter.com someone's probably asked it already, and most of those types of threads get good feedback. If not, might be worth the $5 donation to ask.

Re: movies..
gf wouldnt see serenity, i didnt want to see corpse bride, so we saw History of Violence. Was good, gf didn't like the realistic violence, turned her off. I really liked it, would see again. Some very black comedy in there. Reminded me a little of Red Rock West, which i recommend.

True that you're not ignoring my point, you just don't see it.
While its hard to believe, much less understand, I can live with it...its so hard being right all the time;)

The state sponsoring what, in your words, should be an individual's choice seems, I don't know, wrong. I know you don't agree with that, but like you said, you're in the bible belt and I'm on the west coast...two different worlds.

Also, I always thought a key element of an argument was believing that it was correct. But again, thats MY opinion, not YOURS.

I thought it was interesting that 1 in 4 Americans is not Christian. Apparently I should have made that clear.

I have absolutely nothing against Jewish people, but you know what would be great? Start every school day by reciting "f**k the Jews". The Jews might object, but hey, they're the minority, and they don't have to say it if they don't want to, and hey, if I lived in Nazi Germany I wouldn't care. That would be fantastic.

Glad all the Christians have no problem with the "under god", but tell me that you wouldn't feel any pressure when all the children around you stand and chant "under buddha" instead?

If I lived in India, I wouldn't care, no. Doing such a thing in the US, where the majority is Christian is a fallible argument.

Creston


whats fallible is ignoring the point and pointing to majority rules as some kind of law. Continuing to endorse constitutionally prohibited state-sponsored religious indoctrination of children because you are not yet in the minority is a poor excuse for anything.

Try supporting the right thing because it is the right thing, not because it doesn't yet affect you. It does wonders for the digestion.

Here's your "Christian" nation:
Protestant 52%, Roman Catholic 24%, Mormon 2%, Jewish 1%, Muslim 1%, other 10%, none 10% (2002 est.)

ID is no more ridiculous? Who created the creator? I have faith the aliens had a hand in it. I have faith I'll be proven ri...wait I don't NEED proof when I have faith, do I? Its a beautiful "argument". Even the devil can quote Scripture to suit his purpose..

As for the "missing link", here's a helpful FAQ for the evolution impaired:

"6. If humans descended from monkeys, why are there
still monkeys?
This surprisingly common argument reflects several levels
of ignorance about evolution. The first mistake is that
evolution does not teach that humans descended from
monkeys; it states that both have a common ancestor.
The deeper error is that this objection is tantamount
to asking, “If children descended from adults, why are
there still adults?” New species evolve by splintering off
from established ones, when populations of organisms
become isolated from the main branch of their family
and acquire sufficient differences to remain forever distinct.
The parent species may survive indefinitely thereafter,
or it may become extinct."

if the pledge is just words, then why do we say it at all? Fact is, words are strong, coercion is rarely physically enforced, and the "under god" part was put in at the height of the "red scare" in the 50's, and was enthusiastically proclaimed at the time as a national endorsement of the "almighty".
Glad all the Christians have no problem with the "under god", but tell me that you wouldn't feel any pressure when all the children around you stand and chant "under buddha" instead?

Can you say indoctrination?

Acting was good, so good I forgot to mention it..thats not sarcasm, it just seemed so much a part of the world I forgot about it. Cool clothing physics too. Don't remember seeing that anywhere else.
99 percent of my gaming time is ut2k4, (although I did buy myst-riven-m3-uru--so not like this is new to me) Feels weird to exercise my mind instead of my reflexes, but really nicely done I thought. Nicer than URU imho.
