sorry to hear Blue.. my mom went through lung cancer treatment several years back but she still smokes... it's a insidious addiction. Hopefully your warning will be heard by some.

I'd take 5 quality hours a game play over the junk that I've experienced these past few years... + it always takes me much longer to play through a game then most reviewers.. 5 hours most likely would end up 2 weeks of fun filled evenings.

News Comments > On Hollywood Voice Talent
15. Re: On Hollywood Voice Talent Feb 20, 2009, 19:00 Daturan
it's a perfect opportunity for the many unknown but extremely talented (v)actors. Unlike TV or moves that need the actor's draw power, I really don't care if Mr. Depp is the voice of my in game commanding officer, just that the delivery of the content of the dialogue are strong and charged... What I don't understand is why the companies often times pick someone that would fail out of amateur theatre.

36. Re: EVE Online Drops Linux Feb 9, 2009, 23:57 Daturan
it really wasn't support, no true native client,,, hats off to Savage and others and of course icculus. I've been using Linux as my primary opsys for many years now and I'm very happy with the games that are supported and run natively, more ever the mod(s) community.

actually bots don't suck at all,, or rather you stand no chance agents %100 accuracy and .00000001 reaction time and total knowledge of position and assets. Human players have a /somewhat level playing field so your victories can give you the feeling that you're somewhat superior. Bots have random() sleep() inserted in their code graciously allowing you to have an occasional win.

5. Re: No subject Dec 9, 2008, 17:14 Daturan
hey, think about it,,, look at all the upside to the wait.. a system that meets the max requirements only costs $300... and we can pickup the game for ~$5.00, that's got be a savings well over $1000.00.. with all the cash we save we can pick up the most expensive version of Linux and not that crappy free version ; ) /sarcasm off/ hey Ryan thanks for the early holiday present, you rock!

I wish the game content would keep up with the visual advancements... think simpsons.. how realistic looking is it? so why do so many (including myself) enjoy it for so long?

News Comments > NVIDIA on PC Exclusive Games
33. yep, they ARE different Jun 10, 2008, 14:54 Daturan
playing through gears of war really exemplified the very sad state of the game industry. I could feel the (financial) bottom line in every aspect of the game... so what's the solution? IMHO it's all about supporting the mod makers that work with the GPLed software. Growth is good for all, unlike when a game Co get large, it's the stock holders that don't give a flying #$%% about our "gaming experience" and are just concerned with their portfolio.

I hope by "port" they don't mean able to run /ok/ under wine. I'd love to know the motivation for this,, and why would the job description say Linux and not osx/linux, opengl for that matter? oh man, it's just too good news to believe,, apt-get install steam!

85. wow another crappy game Apr 30, 2008, 13:22 Daturan
I unfortunately purchased this "game" / beta tech demo. FarCry was a blast so I figured even though the demo was awful the full game had to be good right? but can I return the game??? nope!,,, "those damn legitimate customers always messing with our sales figures"...aaarrggg, rant off..

18. crappy photos Apr 8, 2008, 00:21 Daturan
the Simpson's/family-guy are far from realistic but for me are my favorite shows.. IMHO far cry blows... AI is shite,,, nothing compelling.. I'd rather read man pages then /work my way through the "game"... note to game developers, please produce something that takes advantage of the new tech. otherwise please don't blame your crappy sales on piracy.

10. fool me twice,, shame on me Feb 19, 2008, 00:49 Daturan
you know, we can't return titles of games that don't meet our expectations.. IMHO all the hype is indeed fraud! sure we can do copious amounts of homework like looking at reviews from popular sites,,, oh wait,, their in bed with publishers.. hype with out any way for recourse to me = fraud.. and when I used to purchase games frequently I felt cheated.

News Comments > Crysis Patch Delay
18. Re: ... Dec 22, 2007, 00:57 Daturan
ok the AI IS "that bad",, try hiding 1/2 minute after an intense firefight. cod4,, are you kidding, my 2 year old machine had no problem running it at full visual settings AND it looked as good or better then all the Crysis in game high res Sshots. AI? how many NPCs and enemies intelligently engaging each other are needed to impress you? plot,, ok you don't care about a dynamic plot but as for dynamic action Crysis is as static as a tech demo,, at best Crysis should be considered a alpha tech demo.

I for one am looking forward to the next patch... er,, um Crysis2?
have fun with <14fps,,, ok rant off, I'm a little cranky tonight ; )
