Yeah, it's very likely you are ahead of me now, Calvin.  I haven't played the game much in a couple weeks (accursed RSI) so I'm sure you've progressed since I last checked.  There goes my mini ego boost.   crybaby

What, you'd rather a 1024-bit binary address instead? slywink

Lemme put my geek hat on.

The 512 bit hex is the SHA2-512 secure hash alternative of MD5 encryption.  MD5 only goes up to 128-bit hash value true encryption.  SHA2 is a step up from MD5, but a big step down from Cisco's proprietary MD5 encryption. 

Lemme take this cumbersome hat off.  slywink

Let me put my dink hat on.

You suck.

There. Had to be said. slywink

Watch out, kids.  Purge forgot to take his dink hat off!

Yeah, those unlimited cars on the Pike's Peak run are just nutso.  I have trouble keeping them on the road most of the time. 

And congrats on getting a top 500 time, disarm!  I think my highest rank was around 3800 and I was pleased with that.  frown  Of course most of the time I just run the race once or as many times as it takes to beat it, but I still feel woefully inadequate when my best time is 30 seconds (or more) behind the best.  The only person on my Friends list with the game is Calvin, though, so I can usually feel good about my times there.  slywink

Quote from: Bullwinkle on July 03, 2007, 04:53:22 PM

Just when I was mourning the death of OXM's usefulness, they put the Eternal Sonata demo on the disc.  Still, I'd rather they'd just kill the magazine instead of holding back demos for it.  No other demos that aren't on marketplace, BTW.

I think the usefullness of the OXM disc is mostly for the millions of 360 owners who don't even have Live accounts, let alone broadband to download demos.  I'm not a fan of them holding back demos from the Marketplace to sell magazines, but I don't agree with a lot of things.

9287  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Insurgency mod for HL2 on: July 03, 2007, 02:13:22 PM
The Insurgency mod for Half-Life 2 has finally been released.  In a nutshell it is basically a team-based modern day infantry combat online game. 

I haven't gotten a chance to play it yet (still downloading), so no idea if it brings anything new to the genre, but the price is right: free!

I have a bunch of older PC games that I need to get rid of sometime, too, so I might have to try this.  Not sure if they would get quite as good of a reaction, though. 
9290  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What is your all-time favorite cereal? on: July 03, 2007, 09:46:57 AM
For sugary cereals I'd have to say that Peanut Butter Crunch is about the tops for me, despite it's waxy mouth-shreddingness. 

Regular cereal I'd say is a tie between Raisin Nut Bran and Cracklin' Oat Bran.

Nothing for me this week, but I did just rent Ratatouille because I needed to give my gas-trigger finger a break and felt like playing a platformer.

I can see that DarkEL.  I just went to see the movie tonight and enjoyed it, but I probably wouldn't suggest my sister take my 5 year old nephew to it.

NWN2 still requires the disc in drive, unless you download a no-CD from the...ahem...places that some folks do that.  I don't.  No sirree.  Not moi. smile.
I think both is overkill, but if it were JUST the CD-key, I'd be fine with that.

That reminds me of my problem with BF2142.  It is basically an online-only game but you need CD-key as well has have to have the disc in the drive to play.  Hello, I'm already signing into your master server, idiots!

I'm not sure that Tim Olyphant really fits the part, but I don't think Vin Deisel would, either.  After all, Agent 47 is an assassin, not a body builder/action hero. 

I doubt this will reach beyond mediocre, anyway.

There was an interesting teaser bit about American McGee's "Grimm" coming exclusively to GameTap.  Details are still pretty scarce, but it looks like a reimagining of the Brother's Grimm tale.

I absolutely loved what they did with the Alice game, so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.


Did you see what he did with Bad Day L.A.?  That was a horrid piece of shit if ever there was one.  Outsourced games FTL.

Notice that the poll was conducted on "heads-of-households", meaning that it could very well be asking parents of kids that have consoles, and those parents had no idea of the capabilities of their kids' console(s).  

I use my consoles and computer as DVD players, and don't actually even own a stand-alone DVD player.

I thought this game was actually third party when it was in development.  If Blizzard made it internal then I'd have higher hopes.
I believe it went through two separate third party developers before being canned. 

It was started at Nihilistic (Vampire), then restarted at Swinging Ape (Metal Arms) who was then bought by Blizzard to be their console division.  And oddly enough we have yet to see anything from them.   ninja

Off the subject, but it would sure be nice to see a game like Test Drive: Eve of Destruction on 360 as well. It's a blast but framerate on 360 as so poor.

It's not quite Eve of Destruction, maybe half way between that and Burnout, but FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage will be out on 360 in a couple months here in the US.  It just released in Europe last week and I was kind of thankful that it's not out here yet with all the other games right now. 
9303  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: DiRT [360/PS3/PC] Impressions on: June 28, 2007, 11:34:58 AM
Wow, 500k sales in the first week!  This is one game I'm happy to see people support.  Especially in the US where we aren't exactly known as a good market for rally games. 

I'm up to the 8th tier in my career, and if my hand/wrist/arm wasn't hurting so bad I would probably go higher.  As it is I might have to try and take a break for a while, but it's just so easy to say "just one race" and then still be playing two hours later.

Game Informer reviewed this in their most recent issue and gave it a 6.5 and second opinion of 7.5.  Mainly they said if you've played the other versions there isn't much here that's new or interesting, and that sometimes the tilt controls don't feel all that responsive.

I've decided to hold off until I see the movie to avoid spoiling it.  I bought the Star Wars Episode 3 game the day it came out for the X-Box but nearly drove myself crazy because I wouldn't allow myself to play it until I saw the movie.

...
The cars themselves handle much better than the demo indicated. I am not sure if they use 4 point physics as some claim or central pivot as others say, but either way they are great. No, they do not feel as hardcore as the supposed realism in Forza 2, but for the most part the actual cars and trucks perform pretty much exactly as you would expect them to, and the different cars in each class absolutely drive differently and have their own tendancies and idiosyncracies.
...

I don't just make shit up.  Check out this FAQ at the official forums if you like.

Does Dirt use a “Pivot Point”?
No, it doesn’t. DiRT uses a full four-point physics model (in fact each wheel is calculated as a contact patch of multiple points that can change shape depending on tyre deformation and camber).
9310  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gametap Revisited on: June 26, 2007, 01:53:04 PM
Cripes, the way this is going I might just have to join up.  They have really been rolling out the big titles the last few months.  A huge improvement over when this was mostly old Genesis games and such. 
9311  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New 360 cable/accessory coming on: June 26, 2007, 01:50:42 PM
DiRT! 

And HD-DVD's and crap, I suppose. 

EDIT: And Earth Defense Force 2017!  (Not that it can make it look any better, but it's still got the 1080p support)
9312  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I finally got it on: June 26, 2007, 01:49:17 PM
My copy of Forza 2 did come with a manual, but apparently there were quite a few that didn't.  Here is a direct link to a PDF of the manual.  
9313  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Conflicting release date info (Transformers game) on: June 26, 2007, 01:38:20 PM
Some places say that it is shipping or in-store for 6/26 (Target, Toys R Us, etc), but I think for the ads from BB and CC they want to play it on the safe side, especially CC with their in-store guarantee.  Hell, Best Buy advertised both Forza 2 and DiRT as "In store by 2pm Wednesday" and they had shipping problems with both of them.  Needless to say I told them to shove it and bought them elsewhere.  

As an aside, I see that Target has an exclusive on the PC version of the game, and it's only $20!  If you have a 360 controller hooked up to your computer that might be the way to go.

Since I've been purchase happy the last month I don't think I'll be buying anything this week.  I may end up renting (if I can find them) Overlord, The Darkness and Transformers.
9316  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 1up reviews The Darkness on: June 24, 2007, 11:25:35 PM

Circuit City has this on sale for $49.99 next week.  I'm definitely tracking it down for that price.  Of course, then I have to decide whether to play this or Overlord.

Seriously, I can't buy another new 360 game.  Really.  Why do you taunt me so?
