15. Re: No subject Nov 27, 2007, 03:41 CyberNutz
I have a fairly powerful rig, and find that I can't bump up graphics settings at all. As for a sequel that pushes the graphics....sounds good but I'm waiting for the patch to see if any improvement in this one can be made. What does one need to play with the graphics maxed out? Of course I am using dual ATIs in cross-fire mode. On Vista Ultimate. Maybe I need to go back to XP....and one Nvidia GPU? Arrggghhhh. Get this one right first Crytek before you work on a maxed out graphics sequel.

11. Got Ultimate waiting on Halo2...sigh May 9, 2007, 11:36 CyberNutz
I really liked the first Halo. I thught it was a very fine FPS with good levelling and interesting enemies and combat. Nice mapping too. So, if the port over from Xbox to Vista is not that good..well so be it. I'm still buying the game. We all know MS will have patches and upgrades for it over time. Luckily if you didn't like Halo1 or the Xbox version you are not forced to buy it. What a great country, eh?

20. love UT Aug 29, 2006, 13:55 CyberNutz
I've loved the UT franchise right from the beginning. I also like Quake, Q2, QIII. UT2k4 added the onslaught mode, which was great. I am looking forward to the new release as well. Don't like it??? Tough freaking shit. Don't buy it. And FO too.

News Comments > New Oblivion Quest Coming
22. Oblivion, don't like it, don't play it.. Jun 2, 2006, 09:05 CyberNutz
I've been playing this game since it arrived. No bugs, no problems. I have bought the plugin quests and add-ons for the ungodly price of $1 or two. Please, give us a break will ya? The game is very good (and I usually don't like such games being an FPS fan from way back) and I don't see a problem with offering additions in this manner (I'd expect a lot of other production houses to do the same very soon). If you don't like it, don't buy and don't play it. That way you can save the $$$$ for whatever game floats your tiny little boats..

What a bunch of arrogant drivel. This sounds like personal opinion to me. Therefore making it un-researched, nonsense and tripe. Why should anyone care what this guy's opinion of gamers is? It is nearly impossible to categorize all of us. Everyone has their own motivations and reasons for playing video games. As such, they can't be enumerated so easily in an off the cuff manner. And his spelling does suck.

4. Many of us do love Baseball. but... Apr 7, 2006, 14:27 CyberNutz
I bought this thinking it would be fun to play out the schedule of my team with it. But the freaking calendar in the game is totally screwed up! It bears very little resemblence to the actual schedule. What's up with that? Seems to me if they have a database that can compile stats on all players from the old days right up to today, they should be able to get the calendar right. No answer froom tech support as of yet, and can't post to the forums despite having a freaking account setup to do so. So, at this point I wish I'd kept my $20.

News Comments > XP on Macs
50. MAC vs. PC...ugghhh same old argument Apr 5, 2006, 15:00 CyberNutz
This is the same tired, old argument that has been going on since the beginning of both the pc and the mac. I have been a pc user since the beginning. Because, you could always build your own desktop pc to your own specifications. I don't know anyone who has built their own MAC from components that they buy themselves from various vendors. I am a gamer as well. So, MACs have pretty much been useless for that area of computing. So, now we're comparing laptops. I agree that the new MACs are pretty sexy. And they do come with a better bundle of software than your typical pc laptop. But, who amongst pc cognescenti just uses their pc laptop they way it came OOTB? Not me. The first thing I do is get rid of the bundled software and install the software I want on it. I also go with XP Pro because it does provide some features that XP Home doesn't. As for graphic image processing or video processing, I don't do much of that. My Compaq R3000 (came with: 2.7ghz P4, 512mb which I upgraded 1.2gig, ATI 9000GP and 60gig HDD along with 3, yes count em 3 USB ports, one firewire, and smart card slots and a 15" screen, WiFi 802.11b, JBL sound) for: $1600 after a $200 rebate froom Circuit City. It has been a very reliable laptop (w/exception of internal PS burning out, but was on warranty). I am even able to play some games on it. CS, Wanted Dead or Alive play well on it. UT2k4 plays but choppy graphics. The point I guess is: whatever floats your boat. I would still take an Alienware gaming laptop over the MAC anyday. I still think MACs are expensive and not for the average user or the gamer. But, they are better at image editing and applications such as that. As I said, I have considered buying a MAC laptop and may still do so in the future. But, for my home desktop machine, give me a pc anyday over the MAC offering. Just my 2 cents worth....

I'd love to try it. But can't get it to download from their site. Must be very busy. Clicking on the link just gets me back to the original page. Broken link? Or just a crappy site? who knows? Who cares....

27. Halo 2 Jun 1, 2005, 14:09 CyberNutz
When is Bungee/Microsft going to port this over to the PC anyway? I loved Halo 1 and would like to be able to play Halo 2. But, I am not a console player and have no intention of being one. I haven't heard or read of any plans to put this title out for PC. Has anyone else?

I have played the demo a bit. Don't know "Fallout" but this game looks a lot like Diablo to me. But, I liked the demo generally. Not much of a fan of RPGs but this one looks pretty good (maybe because it is like Diablo) although the graphics do seem a bit dated. I don't think it will be the hit that Diablo was though.

10. Re: Just Cause May 18, 2005, 14:51 CyberNutz
It is not the first time I have had issues with Eidos games.
The fact that they are the publisher doesn't change anything for me. If they are the publisher, they need to make sure the developer has done a complete job of testing the product before releasing it to the public. I spent $40 on a game that cannot be played in it's present form. And, I doubt I'll ever "run out of games to play". There are plenty of game developers and publishers out there to choose from.

After my experience with the Snow Blind fiasco, no more Eidos games for me! They gave me "just cause" to never buy another Eidos title.

41. Re: Not cool May 5, 2005, 13:40 CyberNutz
Friends: much like beauty, cool is in the eyes of the beholder. I consider UT2k3 and 4 to be "cool" but I respect the opinion of those who don't think it's "cool". As far as making movies out of video games, its all a matter of what the producers think will sell. A movie is being produced out of Id's Doom franchise. Now, if you can't make a cool movie using one gamedom's most famous titles, what game can have success as a movie? I think Halo would make a great movie, but thats just me.

38. UT2k4 May 5, 2005, 11:25 CyberNutz
Personally, I love playing UT. My friends and I still play the old UT (with mostly mod community maps: Bathroom is one of our favorites) when we get together for our lan parties. And I loved UT2k3 and 2k4. I think the graphics are good (not great, but good) and gameplay is fast and furious. Frankly, I have no complaints about it. But, if they want to make it better..I won't complain about that either!

Wooo Hooo, I really liked the first of the Serious series. Sometimes you just need to run and gun as many monsters as possible. This is the game to do it with. Bring it on!

This one sounds a little bit like HL2. With the exception of the psychic power thing. But, that is ok by me, HL2 is great. And we could use more games like it.

Hear, hear! Exactly why the SS series was a subtle hit. Along with whiz bang, colorful graphics. And shoot em up fun. I hope they don't stray too far from the story line because its still fun.

News Comments > DOOM 3 & DX9
109. Re: mondovoodootunabonecurse Sep 19, 2003, 13:22 CyberNutz
I too, have been a loyal Nvidia Geforce card buyer over the past 5 years. One reason was the great driver support. I had used ATI's cards in the past. But had found that driver support was lacking. Great hardware bad drivers. Now I am finding that Nvidia's last two Detonator driver updates have done more to screw up my gaming experience than ever before. I have a Ti4600 in a WinXP Pro machine. I have had to turn my system back after upgrading my detnonator drivers twice now! Or suffer the slowed down frame rate and other anomolies that have shown up after each driver upgrade (48 and 49). I am now considering ATI again. Especially after seeing this latest controversy surrounding DX9. Nvidia is slipping as far as I am concerned.
