Umm, not seeing a "New" button.

Edit: ahh, but that isn't what I am talking about. When I click on on a thread title and the one new post is on the bottom of the page I have to scroll down to it (a pain w/o a mouse or an "end" button on your keyboard). The Last Post button opens the thread and scrolls down to the newest post in the thread.

I just know these people are going to do a swell job of ruining my name for the foreseeable future. Weezer I didn't mind, but this, I can already see it.

"Oh, your name is Jonas? Are you, perhaps... one of the Jonas Brothers??! Heehaw! I am hilarious and original at the same time!" x 100 people.  mad

isnt there a song "My name is Jonas" by Weezer?

Sure is, and not a bad song to boot! But I wouldn't put Weezer quite in the same category as the Jonas Brothers.

Hmm, I thought you were saying your real name was Jonas Weezer.

Just an idea, but have you guys ever thought about moving the "last post" button to the left closer to the thread title (like OO, Qt3, etc). All the way over on the right is just too far out of the way for me to use it like I do on other forums, especially when using a laptop without a mouse.

No big deal either way, just thought I would throw it out there.

The Black Pearl, the seafood place that was on last Thursday is getting bad reviews as recently as August (I believe the show was filmed months ago). And the obnoxious owner was back according to user reviews.

I bet all the restaurants got a nice boost from the TV show that helped keep them around. I think Fox overplays the changes he makes and how successful they are afterwards. Like someone else said, if the chef couldn't cook before, he's not suddenly going to get better as soon as Ramsay leaves. The places that seem to do well on the UK show seem to have good people in place before hand, or they replace the people who aren't.

Tilted Mill's Hinterland is out for the PC this week (Steam). No exact date given, just early this week.

A might buy for me, waiting for impressions.
2326  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Kitchen Nightmares on: September 29, 2008, 06:55:08 AM
I don't mind it but the BBC America (Channel 4 in the UK) version is 100 times better. He doesn't over play the asshole card in the UK version so he comes across as less of a character and more of a real person. They don't spend any money giving the restaurants a new dinning room/kitchen etc. Also he actually comes back a month later in the UK version and the final 10 minutes of the show is dedicated to showing how/if things changed as compared to how Fox just tells you everything is now great. Research the restaurants after you see a show. As far as I can tell none of the changes really stick and the places get bad reviews.

The Fox version just seems incredibly fake to me. Does no one clean their kitchen when they know he is coming? Have they not seen the show? One restaurant last year (the Indian place) was decorated with sheets on the wall. Were they pretending to renovate a place that didn't really need it? Just take down the sheets the next day? This week Ramsay almost refused to help a restaurant out because it was so bad. It was no where near as bad as restaurants that have been on before, but suddenly this one is just so bad he won't help?

I'm a huge fan of the UK version, but the Fox version is half the show. He really sold out with Hell's Kitchen and Nightmares just to get on in the States, I lost a lot of respect for him.

Looks like it could be false.

Quote
An attorney who has represented Activision in six recent copyright lawsuits involving video games has told GamePolitics that the legal actions were not related to file sharing.

Karin Pagnanelli, a partner with Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp, wrote in an e-mail:

    While we donít comment on litigation involving clients, we can advise you that we have never filed any litigation against a file-sharer on behalf of Activision.
     

GP: It would appear, then, that the six defendants we reported on in our earlier story were sued for something more complex than mere file sharing.

Well at least you read the whole thread before replying. Tongue

Hmm, I am surprised that the forum was so accepting of this. Bunch of fan boys over there.

Not sure how I feel about it, it doesn't look that much better judging by the one screenshot. I guess it would depend on much extra the CE was. I can't see paying a lot of extra money for something that should probably be included in the standard edition.

I will wait for a demo regardless. Sacred 1 felt a bit rough around the edges even if there was a good game behind it. I would like to see a more polished product from them if they are going to get my money.

Nothing about the high res thing on the main site and no one seems to be talking about it on the official forums, which seems strange. Only place I can find mention of it is some Australian and German pre-order sites.

I wish there was some sort of progress bar after getting the "This could take 2 hours" message.  I don't know whether it's hung or just thinking.

Read somewhere on the official forums that it will say not responding at times. Ignores this. Just forget it's there. smile

The install is simple enough, as long as everything (patch, language, additional stories) are all in the same folder the patch will install whatever is there automatically.

Umm, what additional stories? I have the patch and the language thingy, but what else do I need to get?
2345  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Witcher: Enhance Edition on: September 19, 2008, 03:35:56 AM
According to a mod on the official forums, there is a "rumor" that he can't confirm that the patch will be released between 8-10AM Warsaw time (GMT +1). 2-4AM EST.

Really? I thought this was the weakest one in a long time. While I don't disagree with with him on the game, I didn't think any of it was particularly funny, and there was a good 30 seconds of nothing but "Noooooo" on an already short review. Plus it felt more like a real review than anything that witty.
2347  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / The Witcher news article is wrong on: September 17, 2008, 11:43:45 PM
It states the EE patch is available to download from the official site. This is not true, the official EE upgrade patch will not be available until Friday. The press release says the new version is in stores, not that the patch is available. Page 8 of this official forum's thread clearly states this.

According to the front page, it's out.  But I can't find a link to the download.  Someone helps me!!

Game is out in stores (in the US, Europe release date is the19th) but the download patch is not out until Friday. You must be registered with your game manual's code in order to download it. Then it can be found in the "extras" section on Friday.

There are a couple articles out there (too lazy to link) that says EA is going to add an uninstall credit to Spore. So when you uninstall you get a credit back.

Frankly, when I decide that I'm going to wipe a HD and start over, or even upgrade my PC by replacing components, the last thing on my mind is uninstalling all my old games.

I was the same way until OOTP and iTunes came along.

Sorry for another thread on the subject, but I really don't want to to derail the other thread further and I think this deserves a looking at.

Fidget's article.

Quote
MTV published some reassuring comments from an EA spokesperson who avoided some of their questions, but said the copy protection restrictions were going to be eased up in the "near future". She also said that if EA were to ever shut down the Spore servers, they'd patch out the DRM first so people could still play. How thoughtful, especially considering EA's poor track record for keeping servers around for old games.

Ok maybe not the most reassuring response, beside that it will be easing up.

The Fidget article links to Ars Technica's article where they did what I said I hoped KD would do before reviewing Spore. They tested out EA's response. It's an interesting read. End result they gave him a new key.

Still yes the DRM sucks.

On a not entirely selfless note, I'm sad that this must surely rule out any prospect of another album.  Not that I was expecting one anyway, but still.  It's a pity they didn't make anything else after The Division Bell, because that album was fantastic.

I liked TDB quite a bit considering it wasn't real Floyd. I am glad they didn't release anything else for the same reason. Without Roger Waters it can't really be called Pink Floyd IMO. Some of DG solo stuff is quite similar to TDB, you might want to check it out.

i will play DSotM in his honor today.  farewall.  frown

While he was a major influence on some of the songs on Dark Side, the more appropriate album would probably be Piper at the Gates of Dawn when and him and Syd wrote a lot of stuff and he sang a couple of the songs. He had a lot more influence in the early days.

It was cool to see this was the most read article on CNN most of the day yesterday, especially when the headline was at the bottom of the list.

Edit: Wasn't trying to be dickish, just when I think of Richard Wright, I think of the early stuff.

Rock Band 2 and hopefully the RB2 guitar as well. I just ordered one from DeepDiscount for $59, but I think that might be a price error, we'll see if they honor it. I don't think they'll even ship it. I can't find the bloody things anywhere. Including Newegg, Bestbuy, Amazon, Buy, no one seems to have them listed. I'd like to know WTF is going on with them.

Amazon has it. Although it's through someone else. New Egg also has it, but it's not called RB2, just that it's a wireless guitar.

With The Sims 2, I have installed and reinstalled over 5 times not including hardware upgrade that can also use up the limit if The Sims 2 had the same DRM.

Four year old game, but still very popular so I suppose EA wouldn't have removed the CP yet anyway.

Also I see no evidence of hardware changes effecting the installs. Read the whole thread you linked to. The guy reinstalled windows, installed for a 2nd time, and then created a new user account using the same install code, that's what ate up the 3 installs, not the hardware changes. The only hardware change when he lost use of ME was adding a cooling fan, which I doubt even Windows knew was added let alone EA. Saw your new link on OO.

Edit: This isn't the place for this, I feel bad for ruining the thread. I won't post any more about it in this thread.

My favorite game of all time, Kohan II, came out in 2004. I just installed it for the the 3rd time last week. It was on my old XP machine. Built a new computer 3 years ago, installed it then, upgraded to Vista a year later and never installed the game again until last week. So 4 years. I don't usually have computer crashes (knock on wood) or install a game more than twice unless its really a classic.
