Hopefully they will have a reasonable price for the 120gig drive.

The 20 gig HD was what, $100? That is far from reasonable, so my hopes aren't high for a reasonable price on the 120 gig model.

Lee, how about knowing the facts before assuming stuff?

Umm what am I assuming, what facts? That TVs look better than projectors?

I don't get why you are getting upset, history or not.

Zeke, he just pointed out the facts is all. Projectors don't look anywhere near as good as TV.

Details please about the lift test!  I have never played a game like this, but it sounds like the kind of game that would require a good, hefty manual for someone like me. 

Bought the CE at Target yesterday. It is heavy. Includes soundtrack, map, strategy guide, and manual.

Manual is 143 pages, full color, small font. Just started reading it, but looks good so far. Back few pages are charts.

Strat guide is 102 pages, full color, small font. Looks great, plus it has a few side bars of historical stuff. Looks pretty neat.

Haven't even installed it yet, but the packaging is truly impressive.

Also the love of Formula 1 is strong in Europeans... I'm sure that sold quite a lot of consoles as well.

I saw that game running at a Target the other day, and damn, it looked so good I was almost ready to plop down $600.
2447  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Wii channel just launched -- nothing special -- on: February 15, 2007, 03:59:37 AM
I kind of like the channel. Although I am not playing my Wii much right now (the games will come), I like a little break in between games. The poll channel is quick little diversion and kind of amusing.

I really like the News Channel though. It's very easy to use and its cool getting a quick over view of headlines. When I do turn on my Wii, I usually go straight there to get a round up of what is happening, but then again I am a news junkie.

Tutorials now available. Lets hop this saves the game.
http://www.supremecommander.com/tutorials/

Requires you to have a fileplanet account to download them and they don't play in Media Player.

Not a good start.

Is long has the game has decent ones, I am ok with that.

Seems like the more upscale, or trendy stores all have lifetime refund policies, while the stores for poor people tend to be the most harsh on refunds. 

Because you are paying for those policies at the upscale places probably. I love REI, but they are hardly cheap for instance.

Walmart will take anything back. I know because twice I have bought something that was quite obviously used, a lot.

Are you sure about the RPG aspect?  I don't see any mention of that.  Honestly, that would up my interest a bit if it's true.

Actually I assumed I guess, since it's tatical and they talk about heros. Will be sorely disappointed if it's not.

I say keep the R&P out, and if anyone so much as whispers about it........temp ban'em

You quit coming here because of a 3 or 4 threads over the months that had a different opinion than yours? Sounds a bit extreme. I guess I just don't get the big deal about any of this.
2458  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: If Supreme Commander is a DX10 game, do you have to play it under Vista? on: February 04, 2007, 01:20:27 PM
It's a DirectX 9 game that supports 10. It should run better on Vista with a DirectX 10 card once there are some good drivers out there is all.

Seriously though, there is an alarming (and increasing) number of people who are sniping back and forth at eachother for the smallest things and the moderator support box is filling pretty rapidly with reports on it.

Really? If people don't like the way people are in those threads, why go in them and buzz the mods 100 times over it? Feels kind of like kindergarten, if someone is being a big meanie, they tell the teacher.

Why does off-topic have to be a warm fuzzy where people can't disagree? Just ban the people who are being assholes in those threads.

I don't believe you. A steak requires a nice red wine or a tasty beer to wash it down. CB has neither. Heathens.

I still have yet to see anything about Vista that is garbage. Seems to be fear mongering by the MS haters to me. The DRM thing turned out to be nothing. Gaming is not an issue. The only issue is drivers, and that is the problem every major OS release. Wait a few months and everything will be golden.

There is an article stating essentially the same thing: they like Vista, and the third party driver support really dropped the ball.

We have been running Vista for a few months on a Dell Laptop at work.  From what I've seen, Dell has been putting a lot of effort into making sure their computers are ready for Vista.

That article sums up my feelings perfectly. In the end, once you have it all set up, it's just an OS.
2468  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Vista Impressions/Gaming Issues on: January 27, 2007, 03:37:50 PM
Hetz are you using Windows update or finding drivers manually?
2469  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Vista Impressions/Gaming Issues on: January 27, 2007, 03:13:02 PM
What board are you using Hetz? I am using an Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe and didn't have any problems with USB ports. That has been my biggest problem with Vista, getting drivers that work. Hopefully everyone gets on board soon so this won't be a problem for long.

My retail version of Vista Ultimate will be here today. I'll let you all know what I think of it.



hey definately let me know, my dad is thinking of buying a copy before he heads out of here back to his permanent residence, so I am curious for real user impressions.

Just read any of the beta posts about it. I have been using it for months. I don't really have a lot to say about it though. It's pretty, easy to use for the most part, drivers are still a bit scarce but my 7800 and Creative sound card work fine, as well as the modem drivers. XP software has workered fine for the most part, but it will be awhile before everyone gets everything perfect on Vista. All in all, it's an OS, and nothing to get excited about, but I do like it.

Someone on another forum said that only Target will carry the CE and they will have it this weekend. $50, comes with the soundtrack and a strategy guide that is supposed to be pretty good.
2472  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Europa Universalis 3 - Impressions on: January 24, 2007, 12:24:09 AM
I want it, because it sounds great. The problem lies with my patience to learn new games is very low, and this game has a steep learning curve. Looking forward to some impressions though.

I keep thinking about doing this, but keep talking myself out of it.

Considering EU3, but I plan to reformat with Vista next week, so probably no point in picking it up.

Have to look into this Dusk Hotel thing...

Just wanted to add that I look forward to these threads every week Destructor.

Such BS.  Do polls now and ask which game is the best one ever: something that came out now or something that came out 10 years ago and the one that's fresh will win.  Same with presidents. That's why so many recent crap albums are on the 100 best lists. The opposite is true as well.

Ask the question in 20 years when most of the middle east is a peaceful democracy and GWB will probably be 2nd only to GW*.

That's not a real good metaphor IMO. Games change with the times, while the presidency has some clear cut criteria. Yes, in time we will be better able to reflect on the 8 years as a whole, but we can see what he has or has not done now.

Since the remote is much more mouse like, I think it will be a pleasure to play on the Wii. I always end up using traditional controls on the DS instead of the stylus.

Bah, I hate reading about/seeing screenshots for a game that I won't be playing for at least a year.
