On a side note, does anyone else think of the Metal Gear series when they see codec?

Nope, not at all.

On a related note, my dvd player plays Divx and Xvid.  I only had two items to try and both had shoddy source material.  I'll have to divx a dvd and see how she turns out to see if its the player or if its the material.

From the PR Piece:

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon® 2 for PlayStation® 2 will be a completely different game from the XboxTM version, and the first title in the Tom Clancy franchise built exclusively from the ground up for PlayStation® 2. Ubisoft's Shanghai studio (creators of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell® for PlayStation® 2) is developing the PlayStation® 2 game, while its Red Storm Entertainment development studio continues to focus on the XboxTM and PC versions.

Looks like Shanghai is doing the PS2 and Red Storm is handling the Xbox and PC.  Our bad!  All makey-fixey on the front page.  Thanks for pointing it out. smile

Paramount Pictures Announces Agreement to Acquire Worldwide Film Rights to Midway Games' Action-Thriller ''AREA 51''

HOLLYWOOD-Aug. 31, 2004--Paramount Pictures has reached an agreement to acquire the worldwide film rights to Midway Games' (NYSE: MWY) "AREA 51," a state-of-the-art video game which is scheduled for release in March of 2005, available for use on the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(R) video game system from Microsoft. Christine Peters will be collaborating with the game developer to produce the film, which will be an action-packed thriller.

"'AREA 51' brings some of the most cutting-edge technology to the gaming world," says Peters, ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"). "Bringing the game's riveting and suspenseful concepts to the big screen will be an exciting motion picture breakthrough."

President of Paramount Pictures and Vice Chairman of the Motion Picture Group, Donald De Line, couldn't agree more. "We are delighted to be working hand in hand with Midway Games to translate this innovative game into a provocative film. We look forward to bringing all the excitement gamers will feel playing 'AREA 51' to theaters everywhere."

The game, "AREA 51," features the voice talent of David Duchovny as Specialist Ethan Cole of the Hazardous Materials Division, Powers Boothe as Major Bridges, and recording artist Marilyn Manson as Edgar, the gray alien. Players will take on the role of Cole, who has been sent to investigate a distress signal from Area 51 where a viral outbreak has just shut down the research facility, automatically locking all scientific and military personnel inside per quarantine procedures. It will soon be revealed that the conspiracy theories and alien autopsies the world has speculated about with regard to Area 51 are far worse than anyone could ever imagine.

Paramount Pictures is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom, Inc., one of the world's largest entertainment and media companies and a leader in the production, promotion and distribution of entertainment, news, sports and music.

Midway Games Inc. is a leading developer, publisher and marketer of interactive entertainment software.

I'll never watch The Passion again.  I went to the theater and saw it and that was enough.  It was sincerely one of the most horrifying movies I've ever seen.

I'll be sticking with Clerks X next week. smile  BTW, did you hear the rumor of "The Passion of the Clerks" yet?  Supposedly KSmith is doing a sequel to Clerks!

Then of course, you have Lion King 2.  Oh wait...its a Disney sequel, so it'll have EXACTLY the same plot line as the previous movie. *rolls eyes*

Looks like Alexander Seropian (founder of Bungie) is pushing forward with his company "Wideload Games, Inc." and has picked Aspyr Media as his publisher.  Might we see a RTS of Myth-like proportions?  We can only hope...

This was very appealing to us," said Seropian.

Aspyr will work closely with Wideload to make sure that the vision and feel of the game is reflected in all aspects of bringing this title to market.

Look for my review on the title over the next few days my evil readers.

Evil Genius™ Demo Available Now!

Gamers Worldwide Can Now Discover How Evil They Really Are


LOS ANGELES, CA (August 30, 2004) – Vivendi Universal Games announced today that a demo for the PC strategy/simulation game Evil Genius is now available.  The demo can be downloaded direct from the company at http://  Evil Genius will ship to retail stores in the United States on September 28th.


The Evil Genius demo is an exciting introduction to Elixir Studios' world domination simulation. All of the basic principles of being an evil megalomaniac are available to be mastered.  Gamers can build a secure underground base complete with armories, barracks, and all-important freezer rooms. They’ll train an awesome army of brutal mercenaries armed to the teeth and prepare to repel the Forces of Justice who've caught wind of their whereabouts. They’ll extract information about their plans by capturing and interrogating prisoners, and use their powerful henchmen to defeat the martial arts legend and super agent, Jet Chan, in a final chaotic showdown.


More information about Evil Genius can be found at the official website:


In Evil Genius gamers assume the role of a wicked mastermind bent on achieving global domination through the construction of the ultimate doomsday device.  A tongue-in-cheek take on the 60's spy thriller genre, Evil Genius offers the chance to be the villain and control a secret island fortress complete with powerful (and strangely dressed) henchmen, mindlessly loyal minions and a wide range of hilarious gizmos.


All the everyday tasks of the megalomaniac are available to experience as players build a secret base, train minions, gain infamy and notoriety by completing daring missions, toy with the forces of justice by setting clever traps, torture captives with ingenious devices, and develop evil super weapons to complete a nefarious master plan.  :twisted:

Well, thanks to Fry's having only open boxes to select from for Asus and Abit, I'm now running a Gigabyte board.   I fought like hell with this board to get it up and running as I kept getting error after error and drops to BSOD during XP install.  So out of pure anger and frustration I did the only thing I could in this situation...I called Gigabyte.  Seems that my SATA drives need me to find a working system and make floppys to install (a la SCSI) prior to XP install.  I also cannot use my Western Digital without removing the jumper from it and putting it on its own chain.  Thankfully this board supports 12 drives total, so its looking stable and VERY solid at this point.  XP boots so fast that the XP boot logo appears but never shows the blue bar, its already gone before that thing can move.  Ahhhh....can't wait to finish all my installs and upgrades, its gonna be beautiful!

Thanks to everyone for help selecting the board and processor, I'm not dissapointed.

Oh I wouldn't say that.  Yes, it is only 7 days but you can do a lot in that time to get the flavor of the game.  As for the server performance, the issues that I've seen in the last few patches have never really been server performance related.  You don't see people warping around or running in place like you do in EQ and the like.  They have done their homework...
16068  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wanna get into the WoW Beta? on: August 27, 2004, 06:17:43 PM
If you wanna try it out, you'll have to play nicey-nice with Fileplanet.  If I'm reading this correctly though, it should allow the general public to try things out for a bit and see whats going on!  Good luck



FilePlanet to exclusively provide stress-test files to 100,000+ players

IRVINE, Calif. – August 26, 2004 – Blizzard Entertainment® today announced plans to collaborate with FilePlanet on Blizzard’s upcoming World of WarcraftTM stress test beta. This 7-day test will help Blizzard optimize World of Warcraft to deliver the best online-gaming experience possible when it launches later this year. Gamers in North America will have the opportunity to become one of over 100,000 people chosen to participate in the stress test and try out World of Warcraft before its release.

            Sign-ups for the World of Warcraft stress test beta are scheduled to take place exclusively on the FilePlanet Web site ( Additional information regarding the start date of the sign-ups and the start of the stress test beta will be released on the FilePlanet Web site in the days ahead. Anyone in North America can apply—one submission per person—and selected testers will be notified by FilePlanet and receive further instructions after completing the sign-up process.

            “We’re pleased to be working closely with FilePlanet to conduct this stress test for World of Warcraft,” stated Paul Sams, senior vice president of business operations at Blizzard Entertainment. “They have extensive experience delivering files to tens of thousands of people daily, and they share Blizzard’s high standards for quality and information security.”

            The World of Warcraft stress test beta is designed to tax the game’s server infrastructure, allowing Blizzard to evaluate the account-creation process and server performance under heavy loads. Stress-test participants will be able to play the same content that is currently being tested by World of Warcraft’s closed-beta testers, but the stress test beta will take place on separate servers in order to avoid unbalancing the closed beta test. Blizzard will also be conducting an open beta test, in which everyone is free to participate, in the months ahead.

World of Warcraft is Blizzard Entertainment’s highly anticipated massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in the award-winning Warcraft® universe. Players assume the roles of legendary heroes as they explore the game’s diverse cities and wilds, revisiting famous battlefields and questing through vast expanses of uncharted territory. Whether adventuring together or fighting against each other in epic battles, thousands of players will be able to interact online within the same persistent world, forming friendships, forging alliances, and competing with enemies for power and glory.

So this is not my morning.  On my way to work this morning I love-tapped a guy on a bike.  I was trying to round the corner, he waved me on and then darted out in front of me from the sidewalk.  No damage to my car, no damage to his bike.  So whats his natural reaction?  He starts swinging punches at me!  So I'm trying not to have to fight this guy, I'm blocking what he is throwing and its just making him more mad.  Finally he gets one shot in and hits me in the damned ear.  Instant Fight Club moment..."Why the EAR?!"  So I shoulder lock him and he keeps fighting so I threw him to the pavement.  He gets back up and I told him he needs to stop before I hurt him.  He lunges at me again and gets to meet Mr. Pavement again.  He gets back up and rages towards me again and I put him to the pavement for a third time.  At this point the cops roll up and send us to our seperate corners.  The cops came over and inspected my hands to see if it was true that I hadn't hit him. (thankfully there was a witness)  So the end result?  I get to pay the city 185 bucks (failure to yield ticket) and he got a free ride in the patrol car with a big stack of tickets.   Apparently you can add "Bike Rage" to the list of Road Rage categories.
