All I can say is...MICHAEL !!#@#!#!#!! JACKSON?

A show trying to promote one of these people as the clean-cut "American Idol"...and you start out with a Michael Jackson theme week?

Who's next?  Gary Glitter?
164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone know where I can find Nuclear War 3: Ground Zero? on: March 10, 2009, 04:55:55 AM
This was a fan-made remake of the original Nuclear War, written in Java.

The only places I've found for it are ripoff sites that want you to pay before you can download.

Anyone know a site for this, or anyone have it and can put it up on Rapidshare?

Thanks.

It's bullshit we can't return a PC game. Look idiots, if we wanted to steal the game we wouldn't have gone to the store in the first place. I'm not sure if you have heard of this "internet" but we can download it easier than walking through your store. I like how retail is stuck 10 years behind the real world.

I'm actually surprised that the no return policy for games and software hasn't disappeared. When I worked in support there wasn't DRM because not enough customers had Internet connectivity of stable enough connections to make it work. On the other hand there were a lot of CD-ROM burners around. That's the era in which the Retailers' no return policy began, and unfortunately it was a necessary evil for the time. With DRM so common now, there really isn't much of a justification for keeping that policy. I guess if people stop buying at storefront retailers that might force the change.

Unless someone "un-invented" cracks then I don't see what purpose there would be to remove the return policy.  You could just install the game, apply a patch and take the game back to the store and say it was defective or didn't work on your computer or something.

Yea, but people can torrent their games for free anyway.  And there are so many private torrent sites out there that it really isn't that hard for someone to get what they want fast if they choose to steal it.

I know I could escalate it further, but they're not worth my time when I can just wheel out the nuclear option (chargeback).
ESPECIALLY after the amount of aggravation I've had with it so far.  If I didn't have a pile of games in my Steam account I'd tell them exactly what they can do with their
precious DRM.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Why, screw you Walmart. And you too, Valve. And BTW, Steam sucks. on: March 06, 2009, 04:16:12 AM
I suggested that.  They told me "how do we know yours is valid and theirs isn't"
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why, screw you Walmart. And you too, Valve. And BTW, Steam sucks. on: March 06, 2009, 03:42:17 AM
Sorry, I just had to blow off some Steam (pun INTENDED) after what I went through today.

Went to Walmart, bright and early this morning.  Picked up Empire:  Total War.
Get it home.  Go to install it.
And Steam tells me that my key has already been registered!  Yea, I bought the game sealed in plastic.

So I take the game back to Walmart.  Go to return it, explaining what had happened.  The cashier at customer service was JUST about to process the return when a manager came by
and asked why the game was being returned.  I told him.  He opens the box, takes a look at it, and tells me they can't accept the return, that they have no way to know whether or not I've actually used that key myself or given it to someone else.  Asking for the store manager does no good--he tells me to take it up with Steam/Valve.

So I email Steam customer service..and through three back and forth emails their message is "Sorry, we can't/won't do anything to help you, take it up with Walmart."

Great.  Their system screws up, and I'm supposed to eat the $50 and change?  It's not the money, it truly is the principle here.

I'm waiting for a call back from a Walmart DM tomorrow.  If I don't hear back and get satisfaction from him, it's chargeback time.

I just find it unbelievable that Steam/Valve's attitude is "sorry, you're SOL"
172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any place to get Spore from (LEGALLY) that doesn't have Securom? on: February 11, 2009, 07:44:13 PM

173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Empire: Total War Steam REQUIRED? on: January 28, 2009, 01:27:02 PM
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewstory&threadid=95164

So let me get this straight.  I buy it in the store--or off another digital download service--and I STILL have to authenticate with Steam?

**** that.

I had the Collector's Edition preordered.  HAD being the operative word.  There are other ways to protect your product
besides requiring people to install Steam EVEN if they get the game from another digital download source.
174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Empire:Total War] - Strategy fans should love on: January 18, 2009, 02:21:36 AM
IS there a collectors edition for this?  Do the elite units get included with it?
175  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Any other fans of The Seekers/Judith Durham out here? on: December 29, 2008, 03:30:04 PM
I've always loved their music, ever since I was a little girl...theirs together, both in the sixties and when they got back together in 1993 and afterward, and also Judith Durham's solo work.  She has the voice of an angel:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfLstywUh90&feature=related (1963)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSVfLNCW4Fs (1968)

And she hasn't lost anything at all with the passage of time:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_Dvtu6Lpqg (2003)

If you don't love this music; or at least can see it's beauty, even if it's not quite your cup of tea...you have no soul, sorry.  Or taste in music smile.

I've never understood why they've never gotten any consideration for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Why would you want to enlist?

I'm sure there are a lot of things that you could do with your degree here that wouldn't have to involve supporting a war we don't belong in,
and a military that has been responsible for hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilian casualties in an illegal war.

You people who just say "let them die" are out of your bloody minds.

One of the big three going bankrupt could very well be enough to throw this economy into a depression.  Or do you think the 1930's were fun times in this country?

We don't have to like it...but we HAVE to bail them out.  The consequences of not doing so would probably be total and utter disaster for our economy.

Have you played the Baldur's Gate games, specifically 2? That could take up 6 weeks right there. If you're a graphics whore you may not want an old game, but it's one of, if not the best RPG ever.

I may throw BG2 on there to give it another try.

The Gothic Series, The Witcher Enhanced Edition, The first Fallout's.
If you're already bringing your gaming rig, why not bring a 360 and Get Fable II as well.....

Also, to extend time, make sure you do EVERY side mission for Oblivion and FO3..... smile

I tried The Witcher when it first came out.  I can't get used to the weird combat system.

The hospital has free wireless internet throughout--but I don't know exactly how fast the conn is.

Anyway. I think I'd be better off with single-player stuff that I could jump out of quickly, or jump into for short bursts if i need to get offline for boring medical stuff smile.
The most MMO'ish thing I'll be playing will probably be Hellgate London--assuming the servers are still up frown

Seriously though, I followed the directions there...sent Tom a couple of followup emails asking him to approve the account...no response no nothing.

If anyone here sees this and has a QT3 account, could you please make a post in their Everything Else section and ask Tom if he could approve me please?  Thanks smile.

I'm going into the hospital for about six weeks for a couple of surgical procedures.  I'll have Oblivion and Fallout 3 by the time I go into the hospital...so I'm looking for the most immersive RPG you can recommend that ISN'T one of those two.  I'm bringing my desktop setup from home, so system specs aren't an issue.  Recommendations, please?
