Haven't played it for awhile myself, but I think that map was called Campgrounds. Was a good one.

Different strokes for different folks. I still really enjoy Quake 3, but with my last couple of upgrades I've gone with Vista x64 and Q3A won't install. I'm fairly sure if I could be bothered hunting around, I'd find a way to make it work. If I knew the version on Steam would work for sure, I'd buy it again from there.

I've never been a super serious player of it. I just liked firing it up for a windown and a bit of fun when the mood took me. Fast, fun and not a lot of need for thought. For me QuakeLive is just what the doctor ordered.

No need to feel the odd one out nin. I don't care for the games either. However, I can see myself watching the basketball in future. Exiting stuff.

I rarely watch any of the olympics myself but out of a stroke of luck, I found myself up late and watching the Basketball USA Vs. China and I do feel sorry for anyone who missed it. I finally understand why so many people follow that silly game. Simply awesome.

I've been running the last beta drivers with this Physx pack for awhile and I've got great playable framerates at 1920x1200. Still, it's not exactly the second coming and it wouldn't sell me on UT3 if I didn't have it already.

Yeah, have to admit I'd probably try and bribe someone for a press pass to see that announcement if it ever happened.

There's no mention of it ever happening anywhere in that article. Just says they're open to speaking about it and, as is often the case with Valve, they're happy to speak about anything at all. They often talk release dates, too. Doesn't mean it happens;P

And anyway, like Gabe himself said a couple of months back when asked about the chance of an EA buyout, he said Valve have no interest in buying out EA.

We have a really screwed up idea on censorship in this country. Surfs' joke aside, it actually was illegal to be gay in Tasmania until sometime in the 1980's, I think it was, so don't offer us too much credit;P

I've been playing computer games since I was six or seven and sure, I've often wanted to shoot people for real, especially those that fail to indicate a lane change, but I know what I can and can't do in real life compared to games. I think and I'd hope, most people are the same in that regard.

I'm not sure of what the best solution is when it comes to the possible affect games have on people, if any. But I'm fairly damn sure stopping people from seeing something in one form of media compared to another is not the answer.

I've been running an Asus 9800GX2 TOP for awhile now and on impulse, opted for dual Sapphire 4870's over a GTX280 for my latest upgrade on the weekend.

So far I've only installed one card because I still need a new case to fit two cards in neatly, but I can say I see no slowdown in performance compared to the GX2. On the other hand, when the 4870 spools up it's fan, which is does quite often, it's much louder than the GX2. I still trust nVidia with drivers more than I do ATI, so I'm not a complete convert yet. But for the dollars spent, I can't complain much with how just one of these cards performs once you set it up. Damn things are longer than the GX2, too, so if you're short for space that could be a problem.

Might be worth you checking out depending on the pricing in your area. Could be a case of nVidia no longer being the default choice.

"Who was the stupid motherfucker who decided we no longer needed an Up button in file explorer? Please give me their home address and I'll go kill them now. Seriously, that's annoying as hell, and they need to have the shit beaten out of them."

I'm with you on that nin. I don't think we should kill him/her though. I want to torture them for awhile and make them suffer like we have without the up button.

All your points are valid and if it's pissing you off enough, then I can understand going back to XP. The disc copy is pitiful, but not something I have to deal with often enough that I want to kill over it yet. As for waiting for icons to appear, I've been there and done that and still can't figure it out. Seems to me Vista wants to know what's on the whole media or a certain directory before it even considers icons. And by the time it's seen all it wants, it sometimes forgets about the icons.

All comes down to the different way we all use our pc's I guess. Most of your issues I've seen, but not suffered enough to warrant considering a change. For the most part I like Vista. Still, if you do make a move on that bastard that killed the up button, don't do it without me. I've been planning that myself for awhile now!

Not long after Vista first came out I upgraded my pc and went with Vista Home Premium 32Bit. It wasn't exactly a dog, but it didn't impress me a lot and since I had to keep one of my pc's running XP 64 for work, I constantly got to see how much faster the XP machine was on slightly older hardware which left me even less impressed with Vista.
Still, just before they released SP1 for Vista, one of the patches from Winupdate made a huge difference and sped the machine up a lot. So, with the later drivers and whatever patch MS pulled out of their ass to improve Vista's general performance, I decided to grab Vista Ultimate 64 with my latest machine upgrade and I've been more than happy with it. It's fast, stable and hasn't put a foot out of place. I still have need of an XP based machine, but for my own use Vista is a nicer place to be.

I thought all I'd read about this game had it pegged as a third person action/. Is it actually an FPS?

I don't think I have any real problem with motion sickness, but when I played FEAR or even watched it being played, I could only take it in small doses before feeling quite ill. No problem with Portal at all.

Like everyone keeps saying, it's an awesome little romp of a game. I hadn't intended bothering with it, but preordered with HLEP2 and played it eventually. Best part of the Orange Box.

Hard to pick game of the year for me. COD4 is a great game, no doubt. Still having a blast with ETQW, too. Portal is a lot of fun and the fresh ideas/dialogue certainly make it a contender, but I'd give it to Bioshock.

And I'll second the Wang Chung tonight!

MS already did motion control in 1998 with that Sidewinder Gamepad you could use for Motocross Madness. For that game it was a lot of fun and I wouldn't object to them chasing that as option for some 360 games. For the most part, I'd stick with the standard controller because waving things allover the place isn't my idea of relaxing fun. Wii is great fun with my daughters, but the 360 is mine, so I hope MS don't go too insane.

Having seen ASIMO in action firsthand. If it's capable of being the undoing of mankind then we really do deserve to die;P

I've made UT maps myself and I've only ever done it just for fun, but plenty of people do it with the hope of getting their work noticed, and therefore employed in the industry. I don't own a PS3, nor do I have any intention of every buying one. That said, if I was trying to make maps to get myself a job, as many do, then I'd be making maps and transferring them as fast as possible to PS3 where really good maps may be the exception rather than the norm. Where your work would hopefully stand out most. I think it could prove a more popular space than some think.

And to think, he's probably posted here at some point in a HL thread and someone has told him he's wrong;P
