961  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [HL2] Damn how long does it take to decrypt the game files? on: December 07, 2004, 02:40:15 AM
Yep, all about normal.  Mine was also in the 15-20 minute range.

Seems like most of the reviews and opinions out there make this a 19.99 game.

Another vote for Doom 3.

The longstanding trio of Michaels, Gifford, and Dierdorf was awesome in my book.

Ditto.  I have a 3 month old and could not imagine having that happen to her.  How anyone can hurt their child is beyond me.

You're right Rhino.....the guy's suit IS darker than Person's.  I just saw it again on the news and then saw Person.
968  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NBA] Pacers/Pistons Brawl on: November 22, 2004, 03:50:17 PM
Yeah!  That looks like the guy on the video.  Where is his punishment?
969  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NBA] Pacers/Pistons Brawl on: November 22, 2004, 01:46:50 PM
SOMEbody in a suit clocked that guy on the ground.  Not sure if it was Reggie Mille though.  I don't think it was.
970  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NBA] Pacers/Pistons Brawl on: November 21, 2004, 11:57:33 PM
Who was the Pacer in the suit that pummeled the Piston fan on the floor?  He hit him after Artest and before O'Neal came sliding in.  No suspension for him?
971  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NBA] Pacers/Pistons Brawl on: November 21, 2004, 04:07:56 PM
That S. Carolina/Clemson fight was sweet.  Did you notice the cops only going after South Carolina players (the away team)?
972  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NBA] Pacers/Pistons Brawl on: November 21, 2004, 05:44:48 AM
Just saw the video of the white hat dude.  Yep, he did it.  What an asshole.  He's toast for sure.

The black shirt guy is going to be rich $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
973  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NBA] Pacers/Pistons Brawl on: November 21, 2004, 04:45:06 AM
First off...that dude in the black shirt that got pounded by Artest.....was he even the guy that threw the initial cup???  Artest wasn't even looking his way when the cup hit.  How in the world did he single him out when he wasn't looking in that direction? I'm thinking he had the wrong person.

Second, Artest and the Pacers threw ALL of the initial punches.  Especially when Artest was back on the floor and he pounded that guy in the Pistons jersey.

Third....where is the suspension for Indiana's Assistant Coach in the tan suit that was hitting the two guys in Pistons jerseys while they were on the floor (after getting pounded by Artest)?  Nice pussy action there pal, hitting a guy on the floor.  Same goes for you too O'Neal cause you slamdunked the same guy (on the floor) seconds after your Assistant Coach did.

Lastly for all you defending the Pacers.......using your logic.... the next time a NBA player dropkicks a basketball into the crowd, the crowd can pummel said player instantly on the court in the name of "defending themselves".  Bullshit.  :roll:

Holy SHIT!  Glad you are OK......there were some angels looking out for you.

Here's a number you will need:

1-800-I-SUE-BIG (this is a real phone number btw)
975  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NBA] Pacers/Pistons Brawl on: November 20, 2004, 05:35:39 AM
Awesome.

That idiot in the hat was sucker punching Artest from behind.  He'll get his due.

Finally a decision that makes sense!!!  Wes was incompetent and needed some Viagra for his backbone.  Maria's middle name is Bitch, enough said.  I would have had a hard time restraining my backhand from her face if she talked to me like she did to Wes.

Good to see the Carolyn/Bill lapdog show is still in progress.

Also right when you get the airboat and you're going to the red building.  He's outside the red building looking at you and then he walks into the building.

Of course when YOU walk in, 2 zombies are waiting for you.
978  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half-Life 2 Impressions (Possible Spoilers) on: November 18, 2004, 12:59:24 AM
LOL @ Eco.......classic!

Doom3 has coagulated into the cheese between my testes and thigh.  And to think I paid the same price as HL2 for it.  :roll:

I'm still not terribly overwhelmed with HL2.......yes I do like it and what it brings to the table.  But...I need a driving story (ala NOLF1 and even HL1).   Something that makes me play to the next level because I want to see the plot progress.  I'm just not feeling it yet in HL2.  (I'm getting my ass pummeled in the airboat right now.)

And I think the openended gameplay of FarCry was phenomenal and would have made HL2 even better than it is now.  HL2 is a hardcore rail rider.

980  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 performance thread on: November 17, 2004, 03:01:16 AM
Athlon XP 2500 running at 3200
1GB Ram
9800 Pro (4.11 Catalyst)  The 4.12 Betas f-ed up Rainbox Six 3 for me.

Running at 1280x1024, 2x AA, 2 AF.  Everything high, water reflect world.

Only stutters briefly right after a new section load and new effect load.  Otherwise very smooth.
981  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [hl2]New complaint - why do I need the cd in the drive?! on: November 17, 2004, 02:57:34 AM
Did anyone try just pre-loading the files from Steam and then entering your retail CD key?  In other words, do not install off of the CD's.

That's really fucked if it wants to do a CD check after the Steam authentication.
982  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 Offline Mode -* First Post Edit *- on: November 17, 2004, 02:54:35 AM
Someone give Big Jake a cigar.   Cool

I unlocked around 8:30am and it went fine.  Steam hardly downloaded anything for the unlock and it seems like most of the time was spent decrypting/decompressing files.

I've been able to play at all times during the day.

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.

985  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.

Quote from: "Jeff Jones"

Quote from: "Rob_Merritt"
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.
990  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.
991  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I have Half-Life 2 in my hand on: November 14, 2004, 03:10:09 AM
Yep, I just cancelled my EB retail order and bought the Silver version over Steam.

993  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GameSpot: The Final Hours of Half-Life 2 on: November 14, 2004, 02:11:39 AM
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
996  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half-life 2 Gold Stuff on: November 13, 2004, 11:13:44 PM
Cool!!!

Don't read that guide!  I'm sure it has spoilers in it.  Cool
997  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).
998  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.
