I hear a lot of gamers are not happy with "steam". But I'm unclear as to what the cons are about it...

I simply don't like installing "junk" on my PC, but I really don't know whats wrong with steam.

All I can say is I did install it.. but didn't do anything with it.. and for somereason it was using some bandwidth, and I'm not sure why. It was just sitting in my tray.

Could someone please sum up whats wrong with steam?

Is this just like the T. Vengeance multiplayer open beta, but with bots?

or is there something more interesting here?

Pretty soon blue will be posting such fascinating blogesque notes such as "Today I took a dump... and I didn't have to wipe".

or "I ate breakfast this morning".

I can't tell for sure, but does that game use a realtime 3d engine of sorts? the GFX look like 2D paintings to me.

Not that GFX are everything... but I'm a graphics card eliteist who needs to justify the life savings he's blown on a state-of-the-art GFX card that he knows will be obsolete anyways in 1 year, and that people will make the same shitty games for anyways since really people have run out of ideas and just need to fulfull the vicious hardware market that controlls software makers forcing them to make software less efficient thus increasing the profits of hardware vendors creating a giant PC monopoly where if you have a remote interest in sampling modern software whether it be the latest in 3D graphics, or pong.. you'll still be forced to go out and buy an AMD 128bit 54 GHZ ATI RAEDON 70,000 with 800terabytes of video ram. cuz it will of course refure to install on anything less than a 45 GHZ machine regardless if it will run perfectly fine on your GRANDMAS 486 or the comodore 64 that your cat uses as a scratching post.

I've seen a Co-op multi player mod being tossed around irc. Is it crash prone?

Also is there a good reason that ID limited servers to 4 players? Perhaps we'll never see decent multiplayer mods for this game, because its structurally can't handle many players.

Someone help me out here. Because to this date I don't see one soundcard that does the 5.1 sound I'm interested in.

Example: Audigy cards: the sure it can stream 5.1 pcm into your 5.1 sound system, but that takes nothing.. its just ac3 passthrough and useless for games... usefull for playing DVDs.

On top of that my regular audigy card uses a digital mini plug for its digital signal.. what a fucking pain. I just want an RCA out for christ sake... but as I said so far were just talkign about dvds.

the 5.1 supposed gaming capabilites of audigy cards are full of shit... it's basically just EAX that adds some reverby effects to the rears. There is no dolby ENCODING. Sure there is dolby decoding, but everyone and their dog can do that. and its only useful for movies, I would prefer the ac3 sound to be decoded in my 5.1 receiver that I plug my soundcard into anyways.

Is there one goddamn card out there that can actually ENCODE dolby 5.1 sound on the fly for games, and that isn't integrated into a motherboard I have to buy (for some BS reason, and don't give me that shit about the PCI bus not being thick enough.. that's fucking BS and you know it). Of course a requirement would be that games would haev to support this supposed card, andthat it shouldn't take 20% of your cpu cycles to do its mojo.

creative labs can suck my dick, those shit shoveling bastards. What kind of company doesn't allow you to download drivers if you don't have the install CD for a soundcard?!? I mean for christ sake.

Love,
Zaq

Sphinx I dunno man the AMD 64 is pretty sexy, but I just refuse to buy a CPU that's friggin expensive, that has millions of extra transistors for 64-bit functionality that nothing seems to be using yet.

Wait until the software market catches up with the hardware market.

I read a review that said the center channel was especially crappy on those. It isn't worth buying if you have a genuine concern for a decent 5.1 sound.

Wow, that's some pretty impressive fucking article writing (Sarcasm alert).

It really takes a lot of know-how to read other peoples articles on hardware and pretend to build systems buy picking parts off of dealtime.com. They didn't build one of these systems.. they can't even guarantee the mobo they purchased doesn't conflict with this or that, or bios issues or anything.

They didn't build any of these "recommended" systems. Whole article is fluff.

Anyone can tattoe a picture of jesus on their ass, and a few crosses on their back and call themselves a christian rock band.

Creed is so full of shit. considering a recent song involving dicksucking and whatnot on their new album, I hardly think they have anything to do with christian values. (not that I personally care for christian values or anyhting.. but that's not the point right now).

What a load of shit:

"It will not also block the mobile phone signal as the fabric is designed to block only the harmful frequency and not the communication frequency."

Aside from the fact that they claim there is such a thing as "harmful cellphone radiation", which has yet to be proven. I can't beleive they claim the fabric only blocks certain frequencies does that make sense scientifically?.

I'd hate to judge by screenshots but... wait a min, I LOVE to judge by screenshots

Yep it looks like quake2 gfx.

<a href="http://images.3dgamers.com/screenimages/games/spiderman2/04a.jpg">In this shot</a> spiderman has clearly pooped a badguy out of his rectum.

Not to worry though, he has plenty of anal grease to spare! (a little known super power of his).

I mean for gaming why not, all PCs to play Xbox games and xbox games to play PC games (of course then there is the issue of supporting diff hardware when coding a game.. but since everything gets ported to PC eventually... why the fuck not?)

HOWEVER, a console that tries to be a PC I don't think is terribly useful. Who the hell wants to type up an essay, or do work/email in the living room on a big screen tv?

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Why is it we are supposed to trust "benchmarks" and "analysis" from a website titled "amdzone" ?

We are supposed to buy into the 'unbias' and thourough nature of a website who's purpose in life is to have a hardon for anything that's AMD related?

Second, they go ahead and publish a benchmark, and later on in the concluse state that now is the wrong time to benchmark because of driver maturity issues.

SO WHY THE FUCK DID THEY PUBLISH IT?
Some 14 year old living in his parents basement with nothing to do on a saturday night obviously wrote that useless article/benchmark.

Some very neat ideas, but only loosely work.
As spy I'm finding it next to impossible to kill a dood via sneaking.

Second is the graphics performance, even at 800x600 if I run things to "high" (which I can't see a huge visual diff on anyways).. things run slugglishly.

I have an Athlon XP 2500+ and ATI 9600pro
Cmon guys.
