1001  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half-Life 2 Impressions (Possible Spoilers) on: November 17, 2004, 02:49:59 AM
Just got by there Turtle.

SPOILER

Then I got scared going into the room where Breen gives the APB on Freeman and I took a break.



I do like this game but I really don't think it's the Second Coming like most people are making it out to be.  The graphics, animations, and environment interactions are sweet.  I just don't find myself HAVING to play to the next level like I did with NOLF.  Sometimes I feel like I'm on a rail and I miss the open-endedness of Far Cry.

1003  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2: Steam vs Retail on: November 15, 2004, 08:13:16 PM
I used one of those "one use" card numbers that Citibank generates for internet purchases.

I originally had HL2 pre-ordered through EB but cancelled it and went with Steam.

I have seen TV seasons on DVD earlier than their release dates at Best Buy.


Same here. I see new releases out days early at Best Buy constantly. The only exceptions are big, big name movies that are heavily advertised as being out on a certain day (ie. Shrek 2, Star Wars, LoTR).


I think that strengthens my point that BB is run by scumbags who will get away with whatever they can get away with, rather than play by the rules.


To this day I am also shocked that BB has not been ass-raped by some State's Attorney General.  They pull some illegal shit and get away with it ALL the time.
1008  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Does anybody else need to lose some weight? on: November 14, 2004, 09:32:02 PM
I do, I do!!!!  I'm 6 foot and 215.  I'd like to get down to 190 again.  My dad just had emergency triple-bypass heart surgery Wednesday and it scared the shit out of me.  His arteries were 95% closed, all due to diet.

I need to start eating better and need to have some type of exercise (besides sex) in my life.

Yep, I just cancelled my EB retail order and bought the Silver version over Steam.

Well I would expect them to comment on truths.  Maybe he talked to someone at Valve.  I can't see him pulling that out of his ass.

The Steam forums just went down.  Prior to that an admin confirmed that an update was being sent out.

Come on......unlock HL2!!!!! biggrin

Cool!!!

Don't read that guide!  I'm sure it has spoilers in it.  Cool
1015  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GameSpot: The Final Hours of Half-Life 2 on: November 13, 2004, 10:54:28 PM
elborto it's not hard to figure out.

Steam users are pissed because Valve said they would unlock the Steam purchases when HL2 available via Retail, even if it was early.  It's now available via Retail.

Retail users are pissed because they bought the physical disks and cannot play because it's locked via Steam (which should now be unlocked because HL2 is available via Retail).
1016  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GameSpot: The Final Hours of Half-Life 2 on: November 13, 2004, 09:48:33 PM
This is getting really sticky.

Looks like BB has released it for sale across the country.  Can you imagine buying it today and NOT being able to play it because Steam has your retail copy locked out until Tuesday?  

AND the Steam buyers are pissed because retail is now selling the game.

Can Valve actually fuck up this game/release any more that it already has?

Very cool link.  If I remember correctly, Gamespot did one of these "final hours" stories on Tiberian Sun.

Quote from: "Pharaoh"
As bad as Depp looks, I constantly remind myself that no matter what movie hes ever done, hes awesome in it. I think Depp is a great attraction no matter what he does, and Im sure he'll bring some quirky charm to Wonka. However, no one, no ONE, can match Wilders portrayal. He was so good. God that movie was my childhood.


I agree.  Depp is a truly AMAZING actor, although his political views really piss me off.  Gene Wilder IS Willy Wonka and even though Depp is awesome, he'll never top Wilder.

You can't always blame the Project Manager for a failure.  If key individuals are not pulling their weight, then the blame rests on their shoulders.  Project Managers should not be expected to babysit each team member for every second of every day.  And it's ridiculous to think otherwise.

I'm getting tired of Kelly's BS too.  He never takes any resposibility, always throwing blame somewhere else.

Raj did make some mistakes during the task, but I would have fired Kevin, especially after LYING about picking the contractor.

I think you pretty much have to have compromised your morals, broken several laws, sucked up to numerous special interests, called in countless favors, and crushed several innocent people.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,137527,00.html

You've got to be kidding me.  The "bloggers" didn't release the poll info.....the news organizations did!!!!  How in the hell are the bloggers to be blamed for bad numbers???

Plus, some news organizations conclude that exit polls "can be unreliable".  If that's the case, then DON'T USE THEM AT ALL.

They must really think that the public is a huge steaming pile of mashed potatoes.

Oh.....sorry.  I was looking in this thread and didn't see anything bad by him.

Edit:  I still don't see Koala saying anything inflammatory.  He is being rather civil and stating his views.  You may not agree with them, but they hardly approach the "bigot" level.
1034  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Kerry concedes on: November 03, 2004, 11:12:46 PM

Chaz, where does the $25 gift card come into play with this offer?
1038  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Kerry concedes on: November 03, 2004, 08:04:21 PM
Yes....props to Kerry for accepting defeat as graciously as he did.  He probably would have done better if he focused on what his actual "plans" were.  He never did really tell us other than to say "I have a plan".

I get to keep all my guns now.   Thank God Mr. Anti-Second Amendment lost.
