i don't see cameron getting back into hollywood movies for awhile. he's digging his sea and space stuff too much. he is also rumored to be a mircorp client. the guy made over 100 mil from titanic, i guess he's content just doing his hobby stuff at the moment.

I really hope that he gets to fly in space. The footage he could bring back would be awesome.

Snag, you should reread Timothy B's post from Gamespy. This is serious. It is something that could be expoited in a way that makes your pc vulnerable to attack while you play the game.

If this is true though, it's probably a blessing that this source made it's way out into the light. Having the source code for something doesn't automatically make it insecure. Just look at the example of Linux; everyone and thier dog has access to the Linux source, yet it still powers a good deal of the underlying infrastructure of the internet.

It could very well be that whoever gained access to the source decided to release it to show the world what a pittifully insecure application it is.

If someone stole a blueprint for a secure goverment building that was beign developed, then the government would probably ask for a new blueprint, or alterations to the current one. Likewise, I think Microsoft would want to recode part of it's kernel if a large amount of source code leaked.

Dude, ever heard of Linux?

I'm confused as to why this leak has to impact the release date of the game at all? Stealing code is not like stealing a car, you can steal code without removing it from the machine you got it from... Sure, it's possible (although unlikely) that the thief may have deleted the code after they snagged it, but something as valuble as the HL2 source would have to have been backed up fairly regularly.

Something about this whole situation just doesn't smell right.

the easiest thing to do is try to lure them to an area where you can grip/push/pull them to their deaths

Hehehe, I loved doing that. It was great in the first one when you'd run across a couple of Stormtroopers talking to eachother with their backs turned, and force pushing them off the edge of some giant shaft.

Holy Crap! See, now that's the way to do it, keep things nice and low key, release the odd bit of info now and then, and let people know that it's done, when it's done.

I just bought a Saphire 9800 non-pro in Canada from ncix.com. It isn't here yet mind you, but they tell me they shipped it (and they charged my card).

Heh, yeah I thought this was kind of funny too. Somehow I think that to have survived this long, against both internal and external threats to his life, Saddam has probably kicked his share of ass. Bruce would probably get his ass handed to him in a little baggie.

Which 3d card should I get? A GeForceFX 5600 Ultra, or the Radeon 9600 Pro? Which one is the better card?

I just went through this, although I wasn't looking for a nVidia card. If you can find one, the 9500 pro is actually a better card than the 9600 (8 rendering pipelines vs. 4) or, if you can stretch you budget a bit further (and again if you can find one) buy a 9800 non-pro.

(Mine should arrive today--I hope)

I just read the news release again, and I still can't find anything that suggests that this 'game' is going to be released to the public.

Everyone: Thanks for the input so far. For the record, it's a GeForce 3 Ti200 that I'm looking at replacing.

Now that I've done some research, it looks to me like a 9500 pro is a better choice than the 9600 pro, due tothe increased number of rendering pipelines, and (it would seem to me) a higher possibility of a performance gain thru overclocking. Agree? Disagree?

I'm not too concerned with a reinstall, I do it on a fairly regualr basis anyway.

Oh, and as for availability, I have a couple sources for a 9500 Pro, should I decide on that, so that's not a concern.

Well folks, I need some assistance.

I think the time has come to finally replace mt old faithful Ti200 video card, and as much as it pains me to say it I don't think I'll be replacing it with another nVidia card.

So, here I am looking at ATI chipsets and there are about 14 million varieties to choose from. I don't have the cash to dump on a 9800 pro, and I'm seriously considering the 9600 pro. Does anyone have any recommendations? TIA.

Yep, that's insane alright. WHAT WORLD ARE YOU LIVING IN?

It's a litte place up North called Canada. When you factor in the difference in our currencies, the prices you listed are bang-on.

More about the early Celerons: they used to perform much better than the current models, especially when it was fairly common for users to gain a nearly 60% increase in clock rate when overclocking!

Another example that came to me after I made the last post: nVidia got their leg up on 3DFX (who were the big kids on the block at the time) by selling cards that would outperform the much-delayed and overpriced Voodoo 5000/6000 series boards. Back then the high-end GeForce cards were still under $400. Now, you would think that the increased market for graphics chips should have brought the prices down (instead of up) over time. No?

I'm not sure when it happened, but someone, somwhere decided that gamers were all wealthy or something. With high-end video cards selling for $700, processors going for the same, and games going for $70-80 dollars a pop, It's insane! From my own experience, gamers aren't all stupidly rich enough to be blowing this kind of money on what is essentially a toy.

I'm surprised that Intel forgot the success of the early Celeron chips, where people could buy two or three cheaper upgrades in a year rather than skrimping and saving for one major upgrade every 18-24 months.

I'm looking forward to picking this one up... Out of the 'bargain bin'. There's just no way that I'm going to pay full price for a game that's this old--hype or no hype.
