confused why they would want to do this.  doesn't the name have more recognition than the new ones.  are they going to do this to their other studios? 

btw, wasn't the 2k brand more tied to sports games?  irrational isn't a sports games developer.

Sadly, Irrational has now changed their name- they are now 2K Boston and 2K Australia.  Probably not too big a deal but I don't care for the name change.

dumb move.  irrational as a name has far more street cred than those two.  at least they retained the image of independence.

new details

Beyond the astronomical locations, you'll also discover derelict starships, secret bases on alien moons, lost satellites... the possibilities are amazing. And ultimately your exploration is in the context of an intense mission where everything you discover is another resource or clue to help you uncover a dark plot that threatens all life in the galaxy.

it's great.  i am pumped for this game more than any other.  it's like they took an idea out of my head and made it reality. 

I thought they made that game already: Barbie's Horse Adventures.

Spoiler for Hiden:

no, that's captain caveman's game, with the "hot saddle" mod.

You mean to tell me they had access to Metallica's whole body of work and they chose something off the black album?

isn't that considered Metallica's definitive work?

quit poking ATB, he's bound to bite your finger off.

it will be cool, but those albums better not be $20 a pop.  $10 at most, imo.

It better be the demo because otherwise I can't imagine anything living up to any of these announcements.  But, as someone else said, it's probably something stupid like "download the new exclusive trailer off of Live right now" or "get your Bioshock themed gamertag pic."

ooh, a gamerpic.  that's worthy of a press release and tv spot :rollseyes:

demo would be good, co-op would be ecstasy.  at least give us the first 30 minutes or so in a demo though.  i would hate a 1.5 gb cocktease showing us 5 minutes of movie and 10 minutes of gameplay.

damn that sounds interesting.  i do like hardbound books and the like for cool games, but i also really like having gaming figures.  as long as they aren't the size of the ordinator, it's ok.  i'm suprised that the little guy hasn't been broken or bent by now.  he stands right next to the 3 pack from prey and the nod soldier from c&c2.  now that's the proper way to make a figure. 

i'm not sure i'll even pick up two worlds just yet.  i was really hoping to play that with a buddy, but he's decided to hold off until gta iv to get an xbox.  he'll probably pick up the pc version instead.

CheapyD speaks highly of the crew at the GG site.

I don't really know much about them.

Question: if they determine who hacked the site (assuming the claims are true about the hate speech etc) could they be charged with a hate crime?

It was GG..

and it was taken down....

LAPORTE!!!!!!!!!  icon_twisted

how did i know who wrote this before looking to the left?

hackers are like mountain climbers.  "i did it because it's there, and i can prove it."  the one time we were hacked at work, the guy did a simple home page hijack and gave us the answer to how it was done.  stupidly simple hack, and a glaring oversight by the guy who set up the web page/server.  a log file with plain text user/password combined with a static strong password.  took a few hours and cost us in some consultant time, but considering the possibilities of what he could have done, we got off light.

this looks like a crowley drive by attack combined with some simple dos limited to a few ip's.  brute force destruction as opposed to the careful exploit of a site vulnerability.  should be back up soon.  much easier to ID and block IP's than it is to find the hole in your security and fix it.
9852  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Picross DS on: August 03, 2007, 06:50:11 PM
about halfway through the first group of 15 block puzzles, and they do take a lot more time to figure out.  i did the last one almost completely by logic though, and didn't muck up until the end.  it was my mistake though, and not because of confusing clues. 

to add to lee's strategy, you also have that option with groups of blocks which add up to more than half of the row.  for instance, a 1 and and an 11, leaving 3 blanks.  as there are only 3 blocks where the 1 could be, the left most possible position for the 11 is the 3rd, and the furthest right position is the 5th.  that means that the 5th through the 13 are filled in.  once you find all of the rows and columns who can be partially locked down, check for any groupings which lock down what can be filled in around what you have already.  i also use a lot of the X, which helps cut down on mistakes on the bigger puzzles.

it would be easier if i had a puzzle to work through to show you what my strategy is.

It just occurred to me that this has left a very nice opening for Mercenaries 2.  Hopefully that one ships on time and turns out as awesome as it looks, because I think it deserves some success.  Plus, it is actually shipping for 360, PS3, PS2 as well as the PC at the same time, supposedly.   Of course there is still plenty of time for a delay...

good point.  mercs 2 just jumped to the top of my blow-shit-up list

doesn't that bit describe all dual core and up processors too?  what about the 3 cored 360?  again, the patent sounds absurd.  who gets it in their head to patent an idea and then let it age on the books?  corporate tools.

it's a game of lotto nostradamus.  whomever successfully guesses which technologies will be invented in 20 years and patents it wins.  you don't even have to have tried to make it a reality. 

hell, when i was in high school, i successfully "predicted" that ea would make jungle strike and urban strike after desert strike came out.  that doesn't mean i'm somehow entitled to some of the profits.

9878  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: would anyone recommend Scarface? on: July 27, 2007, 05:18:44 PM
fwiw, playing the pc version with kb/mouse sucked and my initial impressions were very poor because the graphics looked fugly.  i was set to sell it off quick until i picked up a 360 controller and tweaked the graphics up.  i think i played it solid until i beat it.  not a great game, but i had a lot of fun.  the late game mechanics for making money start to drag on though, and i never bothered with buying up all of the extras.

i really liked the little things they did to stand out from the genre.  having money on hand counted as dirty until you could launder it was a nice change even though many didn't care for it.  i really liked having cars you could buy and have delivered, plus the henchmen who would work for you, plus those who offered side games.  the sense of progression and of building an empire was better than in the gta games too.  i hope rockstar takes a few cues from this and the other games and adds them to gta IV
