Andy Capp still exists? I thought that was done before ENIAC.

1992 DIRECTOR'S CUT
The Director's Cut omits Deckard's voiceover narration and removes the "happy ending" finale. It adds the famously-controversial "unicorn" sequence, a vision that Deckard has which suggests that he, too, may be a replicant.


Sorry all, I was confused which version was which. The Director's cut was definitely superior. So, I guess we can assume that the "Final Cut" will go the way of the previous director's cut release.

I've also been looking for a new game and almost bought Supreme Commander, but I found too many mixed reviews and RTS is feeling stale for me. (I just finished Company of Heroes single-player and have played the hell out of WH40K Dawn of War.)

Civ4 is a better game than GalCiv2 if you are new to the 4x genre. It's more accessible and has a better help system. GalCiv is just such a better game though; each session has a different feel and progresses unpredictably. With that said, I did just get the Civ4 expansion. We'll see if that freshens things up.

The new Blade Runner edition sounds cool, but the question is what ending are they going to use? Personally, I preferred the theatrical cut to the director's cut ending.

GalCiv2 is a great game, vastly superior to Civ4. I am looking forward to trying out the new Civ4 expansion -- it sounds like they improved some of the shortcomings.

Well, It is a safe bet that your poopies stunk really bad before, something is just different now and now you are smelling it.

It sounds like you are saying thay maybe my poops didn't change, but perhaps my sense of smell or awareness of my poops changed. I guess it is possible, but I just don't remember it being this consistently nasty.

Sorry for the poop talk. Here's a link to Sarah Silverman's "Poop Song": http://ccinsider.comedycentral.com/cc_insider/2007/06/kanye_west_sing.html

Seriously I'm not really obsessed with BMs.

I was having an acid reflux problem and started taking Prolosec OTC daily about six months ago. It has helped a lot.

But I think the Prilosec has had a side-effect. Since this are the internets tube, I'll share -- My dumps always stink terribly now. Has anyone else experience this effect? (besides from eating the BlueChili)

Well, I went out for ribs on Saturday and what I got was tough and completely without flavor.

Sometimes when you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself.

I tried going to the local Tony Roma's Ribs. There was a sign on the door that they were under foreclosure. Not sure if the chain is in trouble or just this particular franchise. I've never eaten there so I can't comment to their quality.

First baby born from egg matured in lab and frozen

The way I read the headline is that a human was reared in a labatory to post-pubescense and then frozen. Perhaps a solution to overpopulation?

Yeah, Mr. Stubbs is my favorite brand-name barbeque sauce too. It has that good, measured, spicy kick. I'll have to try the marinade.

Coincidentally, Mr. Stubbs is what my girlfriend calls me -- da da dum.

It seems clear this statement is meant to create hype about the PS3 when there is no other good news. To me it demonstrates that launch day shortages were part of the marketing strategy and not simply woeful execution. Many already thought this was the case but Sony's denials were at least plausible. Now the truth is clear. (I wonder if this helps that idiot Boston mayor's case about the riot?)

The 'bad' Yahoo update was released on Friday. One of the 'bad' things it did was take away any option for a custom install. It installed all components and changed all previously set preferences to the Yahoo-desired default. Just an all-around total SNAFU.

Bad Yahoo! Goodbye, Yahoo.

I got bit by the Yahoo update. I hadn't fired up Yahoo IM in a while as I use Trillian, so I assumed this was an old and mature update.

I bit back -- I uninstalled all Yahoo components and changed my search engine back to Google after being with Yahoo for the past three months.

These kinds of business practices will bite companies eventually. The average user is becoming more competent and can undo these messes. People won’t put up with these shenanigans.

How about going to a World Series before calling yourself a dynasty?

Crytek's support of this game has been a complete joke. You just know this code base became nothing but a lone intern's sandbox the day after they went gold. I will be a tough sell for their next game.

News Comments > EA To Acquire Mythic
17. Re: No subject Jun 20, 2006, 19:07 TorchMaster
 
Parker and Boxing are on the right track...

The people that matter at Mythic are going to take their carload of cash and go home. Warhammer Online will suffer as a result. When Mythic doesn't make their revenue targets, EA will go in and gut the rest of the place.

It's not that Mythic has gone to the dark side and for that reason you shouldn't buy their games. It's just that this buyout is likely to ruin any chance that War had of being good.... But WoW might have already seen to that -- DAoC became a ghost town when Wow came out, and Mythic probably need a monetary backer to finish War.

Now I'm sure EA has tried to tie some key people to stay with the company for a certain period, but these folks aren't going to be working late nights when their McMansions need furnishing.

17. Re: Oblivion Mods Apr 6, 2006, 19:14 TorchMaster
 
I know that most of us here lean towards being PC gamers, but I'll try my queston anyway...

Does the mod-ability and patch-ability of Oblivion on the PC make the PC vastly superior to the XBox platform for the game?

My PC is slightly above the "Recommended" specs for Oblivion, so it should handle it acceptably. The advantage of the XBox version is of course playing from my reclining couch.

I had high hopes for this, but playing the weekend beta I was underwhelmed. The world was not immersive for me. I think this was partly due to a lack of environment sound effects and music. In the end, there didn't seem to be a difference between this an any other 1st or 2nd generation MMOG. Looting a +3 machine gun of fire or a +3 sword of doom is the same tedious thing.

3. Re: No subject Mar 16, 2006, 17:39 TorchMaster
 
Before annoncing X-packs they need to patch the memory leaks and tweak the cost of late game technologies.

The game is playble (though buggy) for me, but for many on even medium spec machines it isn't playable.

Civ1 was special, Civ2 was good, Civ3 was terrible. SMAC was excellent.

I'm enjoying Civ4 and so far it has provided some good replayability. But again, a patch is overdue.
