You know, (and yes, I know this will probably get me marked for death) after looking over the pic I posted I really hope this game is alot like STALKER.

That's...a lot of bullshit right there. Yeah, it's designed for the gaming n00bs out there, but if I want to push my system, or if I believe my PC can handle it, I can't choose that option.

You can ignore the message but it keeps on popping up.  Sometimes it's right away and other times it will take 30 seconds to a minute.  I tried it one last time and made it through the first interior section of the bug mission before giving up and uninstalling it.  There are a bunch of graphics options but there's nothing to tell you what they do- the readme is noticable empty and I didn't see anything about the message on the forums.  It does seem alot of people are having issues just getting the demo to run.

The funny part is even though I was getting the message the game was running silky smooth.

Rogue Galaxy (PS2)
Crackdown (360)

Mass Effect (360)
Assassins Creed (360)
Half Life Episode 2/Team Fortress 2 (PC)
John Woo's Stranglehold (360)
Bioshock (PC)
Alan Wake (2007 or 2008?) (360)
Indiana Jones (360)
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (PC)
Ghost Recon 2 (360)

Rogue Warrior (PC)
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (360)
well, Indy has fallen to 2008 and Rogue Warrior has fallen off my radar.  STALKER was great, as was Crackdown but both Rogue Galaxy and GRAW2 lost their shiney newness quickly.  I'm sure I'm forgetting some games, but other than the NWN 2 expansion there's nothing I really need to add.

I'll probably rent it-  I'm still annoyed with the way they ended the second one, plus looking at that list I may be busy with other titles.

67567  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Planet DX9 and DX10 demo out on: May 16, 2007, 03:58:08 AM
OK, I got it and installed it.  Damn it looks pretty, but apparently the game won't let you play properly if you set the settings beyond what it determines is the best setting for your PC.  I maxxed out all the settings and started up, and after a little bit it kept on popping up with the message 'your current settings exceed the capabilities of your PC.  please modify your PC settings and try again.'  Now, mnid you, it doesn't say what's wrong, and doesn't kick you out of the game THAT'S BEEN RUNNING JUST FINE before the message pops up.  After getting that about 4 times and tweaking each time I gave up.

Blizzard doesn't need to announce a new WoW expansion, they said after BC a new expansion would be released on a yearly basis.

it wouldn't be the first time a major announcement turned out to be something everyone already knew about.

No, I think they might hold a patent or two on it (or their marketing subdivision), but I doubt they have exclusive rights.

OK, maybe those expired with Ken leaving the company......

We need more classic games touched up like this.  Don't touch the gameplay, just spruce up the visuals a bit.  Would be cool to have comparison shots of the same exact scenes.

The president's reaction was more ominous; he sent an IM to others suggesting that I have a contract which requires me to give more notice.  When I was a contractor at this place, my employment contract said that I was supposed to give 28 days notice.   But in December I became an employee: my signed and witnessed employment agreement indicates no such thing.  He's probably trying to be his usual jerk self to try to make me worry.

It wouldn't surprise me if he didn't know that you're an actual employee now, especially if it's a big company.

Doesn't the manual say anything about gaining ranks and ranked matches?  I'm not at home so I can't check myself.  Maybe it just takes a bajillion points to gain a rank.

I thought future Hiro tried to kill Sylar and failed.  I guess that isn't true?  When is present-day Hiro supposed to try and kill Sylar, did the comic say?    Can someone please help me understand this whole thing?  If Peter didn't save Claire at the homecoming game in the future, then how was she still alive in the future?  What was the point in future Hiro even going back to talk to Peter on the train?

Time is always in motion and things are always changing.  when Hiro lept 5 years into the future Claire had been saved in his timeline, and I am guessing that Future Hiro didn't know because his memory is wonky from all his jumping around the timeline trying to make things right.  At some point Hiro is going to have to remember to go back in time to warn Peter to save the cheerleader or else everything will go wonky.

Is anyone else wondering where the Haitian has gone off to?  His presence was missed last night.
