5. Re: Opera Browser Confirmed for Nintendo DS Feb 17, 2006, 04:37 hkm
kxmode, you sound like you have a beef with Opera...

Pages never render properly "between minor version"? I don't know what that means, but Opera 5 is *OLD*.

Opera's own site renders properly in all its browsers as far as I can tell.

Nintendo chose Opera for a reason, you know.

I also don't think this controller looks or handles like a gun.

This thing is tiny. Think of it as the gun barrel, as mounted on an add-on gun grip.

I'm talking about your average joe that takes all the little acting jobs just to pay the bills. And when they aren't actually working they are going to endless auditions (and rejections) to make sure they have a job in a week or two.

My heart bleeds! NO, REALLY! I mean, supply and demand sucks. It really does. I should get paid what I think I deserve, not what the market is willing to pay!

Dammit, free markets suck. I'm glad we have someone to artificially push the pay higher so that the market can be flooded with even more of these poor souls who are too sucky to get a job, so if they happen to get one, they need to be paid shiteloads of money to make it to the next job.

It's not like it wouldn't be easier if the market was allowed to work as it is supposed to: Fewer jobs means fewer people trying to get those jobs because they are too crappy anyway, and should be doing something else.

48. Pirates and mandatory online reg... Oct 22, 2004, 11:43 hkm
And how dare they charge for this game, it should be free!

The sarcasm is misplaced.

Who said they couldn't charge for the game? We just think it's silly to require an Internet connection and Steam to play a singleplayer game.

And guess what, the only ones who will have to deal with this crap are not the ones who pirate the game. They'll get their nice and shiny cracked version which starts working right away, no nonsense, no bullshit.

It's the actual customer who is affected by this. He has go jump through those extra hoops to just get into the damn singleplayer game!

So you don't really get the point. No one said that games should be free. But they should stop treating their customers like filth.

With the lies about release dates and everything... Did you completely forget how they lied about the E3 demo? The things they showed off were scripted, for chrissakes! They claimed to have this technology, but they didn't!

They lied to us with a straight face. And then they got hacked, and they started lying again...

So yeah, Valve has lied to us. But how is that relevant now? The only relevant thing is that they are screwing customers in the ass, and that makes people pirate it.

Oh, and Beamer:

To put simply - there are more gaming pirates than gamers without an internet connection.

You don't get it, do you? The pirates won't need an Internet connection, since their game will work fine. It's cracked, after all.

The only ones who will have a hassle with this are those who actually paid for the game.

I will definitely play HL2, but if it insists on screwing me, then I may consider just getting it for free. Morals, who needs them, right?

13. Valve does it again? Oct 22, 2004, 08:51 hkm
I hope there's a misunderstanding here. If HL2 really requires an Internet connection and /or Steam account for the single player game, I'd rather warez it than pay them money to screw with me.

Then he better stop speaking on behalf of everyone else (saying "us" when it's just his own paranoid nonsense), and spewing out nonsensical drivel like "they take our freedom away from us".

That's OK Shataan, they wouldn't want you to buy their game anyway, and no one gives a shit about your paranoid and delusional opinions.

Glad you're passing it up. It'll improve the experience for everyone else.

There are still many games that won't work properly (or at all) on XP or 2K. Rune, Soul Reaver, Syndicate Wars, etc. Basically, older, lower profile games probably won't work with NT-based OSes.

Rubbish. Rune works fine on XP. I've tried Soul Reaver, and it worked fine too. XP can run, well, just about anything.

The fact remains that many Germans are being taught that it did not happen.

You are an ignorant fool. Or more likely, a troll.

So i.e. you cant back up your quote

"It a PROVEN fact that information obtained through torture is utterly useless"

Isn't it obvious? It's already been mentioned.

You will get some useful information from them, but people will also say anything to make the pain stop. Therefore, you get some useful information, and some lies. But you have no idea which is which, and could end up with a disaster on your hands.

You know how the allies made Germany believe the deception about the landings on D-day in France? They gave the Germans some facts, and some lies, and the result was that the Germans though that the invasion would be somewhere else. Yes, there would be something coming over the channel, but they made them believe that this was just a diversion, and that the main assault would be further in-land.

Just to show you how dangerous facts mixed with lies can be. Therefore, torture is rather useless to get any real info to go by.

16. Peter Moore vs. reality Apr 1, 2004, 04:52 hkm
Peter is just angry because his precious X-box is being 0wned worldwide by Japanese consoles. But even if he is angry, it isn't very wise to expose your incredible arrogance and ignorance to the rest of the world.

Especially not the market you are insulting, when it's the one you are trying to gain a foothold in.

Personally, I'd prefer to have monsters placed where they do the most for gameplay and not where they look the best.

Why are you assuming that they don't place things where they do the most for gameplay? And why are you assuming that there is a conflict between good looks and gameplay?

Illogical, illogical.

M2 (comes w/ Opera) seems...odd? I don't know, didn't like it either...

It's just a different concept from other, conventional e-mail clients. It's easier to use and more flexible, and organizes your mail for you. Yes, really.

You really should give it a chance. Read this to learn what M2 is all about:

If you just give it a chance and get to know it, you might find that it's really quite nice.

I went from Netscape to Eudora to The Bat, and have ended up with M2. To me, it is easier and more convenient than anything else.

Just read the post in the URL above - you won't regret it.

This was actually passed up in most reviewers yes by Starcraft, and I have no idea why.

Could be because SC actually had three totally unique races to play, and it was nicely balanced anyway. The storyline was very involving, and the multiplayer just sucked you in. Three different, dynamic races vs. a bunch of near-identical bots? I know what I would pick...

perhaps you should get a life instead of taking it upon yourself to right the wrongs of the industry in favor of game developers when you have ZERO connection to it

Or maybe I'm just sick and tired of crybabies who attack people for now reason.

Grow up.

18. Re: ITS CALLED HUMAN NATURE Feb 4, 2004, 10:08 hkm
so its not cool for others to bitch at devs, but it IS cool for you to bitch at them for bitching?

If the not-so subtle difference between assaulting a representative of a company which does something you disagree with and someone pointing out how stupid you look when you attack someone because the company they work for does something you don't like, then I guess you are the one who should get a life.

Bitching at devs accomplishes nothing, while me bitching at crybabies might make them get a damn grip and stop acting like morons.

he was an Ass-hat who was most likely shown the door.

My theory is that it is people like you who got to him, and he had to quit to keep his sanity. People like you complain about everything. You get too caught up in your own little world, in your own perception of what the perfect game should be, and if things don't go your way, you start ferociously attacking any representative of the game company you can find.

If you are such a brilliant mind and have all the right answers, why don't you start a gaming company yourself? Since it's so easy and since your answers are better than everyone elses, why bother harassing others?

Get a grip and stop attacking people like that just because you disagree with the direction their game is moving in, or go away and start your own damn gaming company.

sc4r4b, where are you reading that 2003 was supposed to include vehicles? The quotes say:

1. It will allow for vehicles. It doesn't say that it will include it.

2. It says that they may be added later.
