While this is skirting on R&P, its pretty funny to think about what if Jesus were to show up today, get killed and rose from the dead 3 days later...we'd be saying pretty much the same here then about that ;-)

Naah, we'd set up a poll:  Zombie or Vampire?

he wants to get everyone's hearts and minds... Zombie.

What about the whole "This is the cup of my blood it will bring everlasting life" thing?
Vampire

I think I may just give up watching anything except some reality shows.. It's a little rarer for them to cancel before the show "ends", even though it has happened.. (Which is odd because generally they are done filming everything already)...
Too many shows end with no real finish....
Either that or I wait until the series is finshed and then rent it on DVD.... If it doesnt finish, I skip it...

i wish developers would force 64bit onto users. it's the only way this is going to change imo. there's no reason to run a 32 bit system anymore. it's outdated and it hurts those of us with a 64 bit system.

take advantage of my 4 cores, that's why i bought a quad. stupid 32bit users holding the real men down.

Many/most new PC's come with the 64 bit version of the OS when bought at retail, so it looks like this is heading that way.... I wouldn't be surprised if the next version of Windows was 64 bit only...

Never underestimate the power of free.

Never underestimate a gamer that wants to play MechWarrior again. There is a reason that we all went nuts when we saw that trailer/alpha demonstration of MW5 (or whatever it was called) a while back.
The original mechwarrior was the only reason I purchased a PC.... in fact I purchased the game before the PC and took it with me to try out on a demo unit to test it... only PC Richard let me do this and I spent 2 hours on their salesfloor "testing" it.... smile
I think I even helped them sell some units... slywink

I do sort of like the idea of blowing up the whole ridiculous "secret identity" stuff in favor of going so far in the opposite direction (showing off) that it creates its own problems.

The thing is that with Iron Man, ANYONE can be Iron Man (or War Machine), so even if it's Tony now, he can always say in the future it's someone else.... I think he has done this with the comics and with him having remote controled armor, he can also be in 2 places at once...

Quote from: Wargus on April 06, 2010, 02:59:49 AM

The grail of battletech games was the mechwarior sim that Wizards of the Coast had in their downtown store. Something like 10 pods linked, each set up like the cockpit of a mech with controls for resetting weapon power, gimble lock, heat, etc... dual joystick/throttle stick and foot controls: it was awesome.  I've wanted that setup at home ever since.

and now back to drm:

I was thinking about this earlier: I'm not against DRM, as long as it remains in the background, doesn't mess up my computer, and doesn't keep me from playing a game based on some third party issue out of my control.  I'd love to play AC2, but won't until they remove the DRM. Even then, if they wait to long and other things are out to catch my interest I still may not get it.

1) Those pods were awesome, so using those in conjuntion with everything else we are saying would be perfect.... (I believe you can still buy the pods, but they arent cheap...)

2) I don't think most of us are against DRM in general, but this type of DRM specifically.

3) Does anyone know if Austraila is fixed for S7 yet?

I want something where I can run around, jump in a mech, armor, or aerotech vehicle... dock with and pilot dropships and jumpships, board the same, and go anywhere in a large universe... smile

Then don't play it if you are in Australia [...] It's just not that big a deal.

Nice fucking attitude there, Lorini.  It's probably a huge deal if you're in Australia and had really been looking forward to the game.

(With apologies to Vizionblind; I did try and stay out of it, but everyone else is doing it (and my post has been very heavily toned-down from what I originally had slywink))

How the hell is $50 of your entertainment dollar a huge deal? I wish I had a life where $50 was a huge deal. Looking at health, family, work these types of things are huge deals. Waiting for Ubisoft to fix this (which they are doing) is not a huge deal. In fact, if $50 is a huge deal in your life, you need to save for something which really is a huge deal.

It must be nice to feel that you can randomly give away $50.... Can I send you my address?  icon_twisted(Not too mention, aren't games more expensive there?)

Jesse Ventura can do a cameo with Billy Dee Williams.

Well i've just picked up Assasins Creed II for 10 in town in an Easter Sale. Such a big drop so quickly makes it seem that it hasn't sold at all well.

Problem is you don't know whether it means DRM the issue or the fact that it wouldn't have sold anyways and piracy would then have got the blame. Either way it's not likely we will see many more games like this full stop if they don't sell.

Well, since they have publicly said that the DRM works and this wasn't pirated properly, they can't use piracy as an issue anymore.....
Maybe they'll realize this and drop all DRM from their future games, this way if a game sucks, they can still have a piracy scapegoat!

Try updating Malware Bytes in regular mode. If you can't, then it is usually a symptom of the malware/virus...

Double check you proxy settings....
In Internet Explorer Goto: Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN settings. Make sure proxy is not checked and automatic is checked and retry Malware Bytes update.

Also: Either goto safe mode or get a boot cd and delete all temp folders.
Gotot each user in documents and settings or Users and look for local settings and delete temp and temp internet folders
goto root of C: and delete temp folder if there.
Goto windows folder and into the temp folder and delete all files.
you may get "in use" errors. if you do select the other files and delete again. repeat as needed.
also install, update, and run: Spybot and adaware.... Run all of the tools in safe mode first if possible. Rerun the gambit of tools. some that didnt work before may work now. Then run all in reg mode...

Very time intesive, but the best way to make sure....
