921  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / LotR: Battle for Middle Earth - First Impressions on: December 27, 2004, 04:53:36 PM
Hmmm...

Also playing at 1280x960 graphics maxed, 4AA and 8AF.  AMD 3200+, 9800 Pro, 1 gig RAM, Audigy 2 ZS, 4.12 Cats.

The part where Gandalf fights the demon in the Mines is horrendous on my system.  It will slow down to 1-2 FPS, then speed up, then slow down again when using powers.

I also got to play a bit of my 14.99 Amazon copy.  I like it and find it entertaining, but it is rather easy.  And it transforms my system into it's bitch.  I haven't seen a game run around 1-2 fps (at times) in a LOOOOOOOONG time.

This guy is in it for himself and NOTHING else.  Loyalty means jack shit to him.  I kinda feel bad for LSU too.  He's basically telling them "Hey I won my Championship, now fuck off."

Geez......22 million.  Guess it pays to be an ass.

Another vote for Antec.  Good service too.  I had one go out on me 5 years ago.  They overnighted a new PS and I didn't even have to send the old one back.

No Fox.....I wouldn't feel the same way if Sega/VC got the deal.  I would be happy.

Everyone pissed about this just should NOT buy a copy of Madden next year, or any EA Sports game.  I'm not buying this or NCAA next year.

Jesus, Purge.  I quit this discussion.  It was simply my opinion, nothing more.  I really don't need my posts dissected to the nth degree, pointing out what I should have said and should have meant.

Would you guys upgrade to this from a 9800PRO?  I'm thinking it might be worth it, especially since it won't cost much out of my pocket if I sell the 9800PRO on Ebay.

I give up.  You win.   My four points were strictly my opinion and nothing more.
947  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My 2004 pc gaming year in review on: December 11, 2004, 02:28:49 PM
LE, I love how you tell people that they are "wrong", as if you were the defining voice in computer gaming. :roll:

Those 4 points illustrated why "I" didn't like it.  Sorry, but someone's opinion can't be wrong.

Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"

It's because those who don't like it feel compelled to overreact in their dislike for it to be cool and edgy.  In addition, they fail to provide objective complaints about the game, or if they do, the complaints are irrelevant or flat out wrong.


Please do not group everyone that doesn't like HL2 into this characterization.  Lord knows I don't need to be "cool or edgy".

I didn't like it because:

1.  The game WAS on rails.  No open-endedness at all.
2.  The Combine AI WAS boring, uninspired, and predictable.  A true step down from HL1's Marines.
3.  The story just did not drive me forward like HL1, NOLF1, or even Tron 2.0.
4.  Steam sucked....not for everyone, but for a LOT of people that bought the game at retail and couldn't play the damn thing when they got home.

Do I think the game had great graphics, characters, and physics?  Hell yeah.  But they alone do not make a killer experience.
949  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / damn Newegg and thier ram on: December 10, 2004, 09:49:46 PM
Why did they want to charge you tax, especially with you in TN?

Quote from: "JeffG"

Honestly, this is just my opinion, but if you play games and don’t like Half Life 2, you should probably pick a new hobby.


This is probably one of the most absurd, elitist statements I've ever read, even if it is your opinion.  So the entire "hobby" of computer gaming is based on HL2?  A person's liking of HL2 is now the benchmark of keeping computer gaming as a hobby?  ALL the other games out there are now damned to hell and don't "count" towards an individual considering themselves a gaming hobbyist?  Ridiculous.
951  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My 2004 pc gaming year in review on: December 10, 2004, 07:59:39 PM
I also thought HL2 was a disappointment.  It's high on his list of disappointments because the expectations were higher for it than say......Catwoman.  It doesn't mean those listed below were actually better.
952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ok so how do I play HL2 if the comp has no internet? on: December 09, 2004, 09:38:59 PM

Quote from: "corruptrelic"

If you haven't had the game for that long, perhaps you could try returning it to the store? Let me know you can't even play the game because it requires an internet connection which you don't have. Tell them you were mislead by the box.


Which would be a lie, as it clearly states on the box "Internet Connection Required".  Not "recommended", but "required".


I totally agree with you, but honestly....who the hell reads that anyway?

"But I have a sister who is a single mom who works two jobs and is in nursing school. I couldn't do that. I am so proud of her. That's someone to admire."

Uh Tom.....maybe you could throw her some scratch so she doesn't have to work two jobs.
