part of their delay may be due to the massive sale going on now, but i have heard of people having issues getting support from them in the past.

check to see if slacker is available in your country.  i actually like it's music matching abilities better than when i tried pandora. 
6643  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown 2 on: July 02, 2010, 07:25:12 PM
well that's odd. 

can't wait til next week.  seeing purge playing this is making me jealous. 

purge, how does it compare to the first one?  i've played the demo and enjoyed it even though you don't have enough time to get to the cooler stuff.

i played through all of the Empires at war campaigns and they were all very fun, even though i tired of the land assaults towards the end and just moved the death star around to eliminate the pesky rebel bases. 

the smuggler campaign was my favorite though.  rebel, not so much.

i also picked up max and the magic marker after watching the video.  it's like crayon physics but better. 
6645  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: If you like your wallet DO NOT GO TO STEAM. Summer sale! on: July 02, 2010, 05:27:19 PM
agreed, but i thought they would have had a better deal on it, and crysis for that matter.

at least you can get borderlands with all the dlc for around 20 bucks.  imo, a much better value for the money.

finished the coop missions last night and man the river was a pita.  20 minutes and almost 200 enemies.  got to expect the respawning enemies, but i hate that they just show up on the map without warning.  every time we died it was due to someone running down on us and getting us in a crossfire. 

worst part of it was getting incapped and then falling back into the water where you couldn't be revived.  that's a pretty stupid thing to happen

i was always fond of disassembling them and keeping the platters around the desk, as a warning to the new ones, if you will. 

i did learn through this that if you smack a platter with a hammer, it will leave pixie dust and potentially dangerous glass dust on your desk. 
6659  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Very frustrating wireless connection issue on: July 01, 2010, 04:08:52 AM
sounds like you have a problem with DNS entries not being sent from the router.  check your configuration on the computers for DNS entries other than the router (likely, a 192.168.x.1 address depending on default config)  if you aren't seeing some form of outside dns entry, then that explains why your network is good while the web is not.
it will also show you if you are getting an IP conflict. 

with many routers, you can assign an address for each machine by mapping it to their MAC address.  that way you don't have to worry about manually assigning it to your laptop.  this will reduce work if you have to take the laptop to another location and then rely on their network.  i do this with both wired and wireless devices in my house.

6661  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Device Convergence on: June 30, 2010, 06:37:49 PM
we have phones that do everything you could want mobile (gps, games, IM, voip, camera, video), home entertainment boxes that game/video on demand/social network/media hub and cameras that double as HD video recorders. 

it seems that everything these days is destined to do a bazillion features rather than specialize.  so long single use devices.  you will not be missed.

not much info on numen.  3rd person action rpg apparently developed by akella according to one source.  pics looked grainy, video looked decent.  might be worth a gamble. 

there's a user review on the Steam forums.

thanks for that.  looks like i am going to hold back on it then.

two player reviews on GS.  one mediocre, one bad.  expect the usual range of eastern european developed drawbacks (ai pathfinding in particular)

i was tempted by the TT pack as well, but i already have a ton of stuff on steam and it's very unlikely i'll get to much of it.  i don't regret it when it's small amounts, but $50 is a lot for backlog dump.

dragon rising is a pretty decent game.  been playing it off and on on the 360, but it ran pretty well on my older pc.  it is hard, but once you get adjusted to the mechanics and approach it differently than a cod/moh, it's fun.

not the first time it's happened btw.  the defense grid map packs were half off but not for a full day and i remember this happened back during the winter sale.  missed my shot at it as well, but it's probably for the best;  i was going to grab it for convenience and not work about the disks.  same with the civ iv pack, but with the added threat of a renewed addiction and loss of sleep.

I have to admit, I have never played a single Civ game.  ninja  If one were to get started, would Civ IV be a decent starting point?

it would and the complete bundle is an awesome deal considering the mod community you get access to with the expansion packs.  getting colonization in with it is just icing imo. 

of course, if you have an addiction problem, it might be a bad thing.  biggrin

there has been a few community patches since the last official one, so at least the game isn't completely wrecked any more.

haven't played it in a while, but at $2, it might be worth a spin again.

splitting my time between 2 of the 3 games from gamestop's last b2g1f deal.  banjo: nuts and bolts is pretty simple and has some annoying issues, but i am enjoying the change of pace and the challenge of getting around the hub world's limitations.  i spent an hour just picking up crates and finding new ways to climb up buildings and over obstacles designed to keep you out until getting better wheels.  wheels which you can get through normal play within an hour.  the vehicle building is kind of fun at first, but as i found, the designs don't really matter that much so you don't get a huge improvement from making aerodynamic designs. 

also playing sacred 2 again and looking to finish up with the light sided campaign and the angel chick.
