1241  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Im playing the Bioshock Pc demo Now! on: August 21, 2007, 11:39:04 AM

Quote from: SpicyJ on August 21, 2007, 07:20:07 AM

My computer laughed at me when I tried to play the demo. 360 version for me, definitely.

I think that it would be great that if a game saw that your specs weren't up to par, that it actually did laugh at you...

I played only a little bit of the demo last night, just to look at the graphics. Ran fine with everything turned up and 1680 X 1050 resolution.
Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo 6600, 4GB Ram, 8800 GTX, Vista, old Nvidia drivers

For what it's worth, even the RETAIL version of the game is still locked.  I picked it up at Circuit City yesterday (Sunday) and installed it.  After installation it then had to authenticate (even the box states that an internet connection is required) which it then promptly told me that Bioshock was not available until August 21st and I should uninstall the game and then reinstall it on the 21st.....  Going to try again this evening when I get home from work.

If I wasn't so damn hyped for this, that would cause me to cancel the game, even though I am getting it on the 21st. There is no reason to punish the consumer's for mistakes that retail stores make. What if someone just picked it up without actually know the details about activation (I didn't even know until very recently). The box says Internet connection required, but does it say cannot be played until the 21st?

Demo still wasn't active when I went to work today. frown

I am leaving at 11PM and have to be back at work tommorow from 8AM-4PM, so by the time the demo gets activated I will have the full game. Wasted the download. Damn.

My local TRU knew about it and had already gotten the memo, supposdly they did have them out at one point. I can't play on the 360 because it's out for repair, but I was gonna get it and bring it to the GS I have the PC version pre-ordered and try to convince them to give me the real one. slywink

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1
4GB Ram
8800 GTX
Windows XP.

the Core 2 Duo tends to trip up system detectors.  I've had install programs tell me my 2.13 isn't good enough to run games yet they run perfectly.

Yeah, but they didn't use a detector, they used a drop down menu system...

Their bait is an 18+ year old that looks younger.  She's usually only in sight of the target for like 5 seconds before she heads to the back room. 

I wonder if the suspect could use that as an argument.....

Mine just died. No red rings, the console just freezes randomly. I unplugged everything for a few minutes and tried turning it on with only the bare minimum, no games, no network, no hard drive, no controller. Same things. Makes a loud hising noise then freezes. I have the extended warranty with them and they are sending me a shipping box, BUT they said the turn around time is 3-5 business WEEKS!!!! WTF? That is crazy...

Oh, also, with the mini-map thing, even though there are no plans for it..... Multi Monitor support would go nioce with that. Even multi-monitor support without the mini map would be nice. I can drag all the menus to a separate monitor and use the main screen for the game.

Also, dragable menus would be nice, even without the multi-monitor support.

1) I would like to offically request that all current and future posts regarding recommendations to purchase games be banned.. I really didn't need to spend $45... slywink
2) Things I think this game needs from the little bit I have played it:

1) A mini map, with a couple levels of zoom. Solar System, Region, Whole thing for example. Mini map should have flashing "combat" icons to show your conflicts and allies conflicts, preferably in different colors.
2) Time Acceleration. There are times when the game is SLOW. I went to bed and left it running to gather resources. It was nice when I woke up though. smile
3) Colony ships should have a speed upgrade available at some point.
4) A clickable alert list, so that if an ally calls for help and you miss it, you can click to go there. Also in the same note, on the mini map when you click it, it should show the path from your currently selected planet to the alert so you have an idea where it is. (I made a LARGE map on my first game)
1264  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: To Catch A Predator.... on: July 27, 2007, 06:53:45 PM
I haven't really seen this, but have heard of it.... Do they actually get the guy to ask for sex or something? If sex is never brought up in the conversations, could they still be charged?
Also is this show entraping people in any way?

Right now I built my own "Tivo" I have a PC with one single and one dual tuner and I'm using the beyond TV software for it. I can record up to 3 shows at once and I only had to pay a one time fee for the software.

Real predictions/guesses....

Spoiler for Hiden:
  • Snape IS good
  • Either Dumbledore planned on Snape killing him or Dumbledore used a Substituion-Jutsu and isn't dead
  • Snape will die. Either defeating Voldemort or saving Harry
  • Ron/Hermonie & Harry/Ginny Hook-up both imply marriage for the next book or something
  • I think Harry is the one to defeat Voldemort, but it's possible someone else does.
  • I think that Malfoy turns out to be a hero of some sort. He may be one of the ones killed though.
  • I think one of the Dursley's might get killed. Maybe the parents, but I actually like their characters
  • I think that there may be implications that Harry becomes Headmaster eventually
  • I hope Snape gets to finally teach Defense against the dark arts. Then sucks at it...

Got the book off deepdiscount, took off and read it. Disappointing.....

Spoiler for Hiden:
Turns out that Snape had an affair with Lilly and is really Harry's Dad. It also seems that Hermonie is Harry's sister and that she was addopted by the Muggles to hide her, which explains where she gets her talent from. Ron hooks up with Hermonie and hint on marraige. Padfoot comes back as a ghost, as does Dumbledore and they tell Harry that he must defeat Snape and Voldemort. Harry feels sorry for Snape and what his father did to him and tries to win Snape back over. At the end, when Voldemort is about to finally kill Harry, Snape intercepts the spell just as he hits Voldermort with one and they both die. Meanwhile, Ron and Hermonie conjur up a large pack of ferrets and use them to defeat all the Death Eaters. At the end, Snape comes back as a ghost with Dumbledore and Padfoot, while the Weasly twins shoot off fireworks.....

won't you feel like an arse if you're right?  Tongue

The only thing there that should be remotely right is the

Snape/Voldermort thing. But I think Harry kills Voldermort. I also wouldn't be surprised about the Ghost thing. If a pack of Ferrets show up though, I'm gonna be pissed...

TE: So what is the actual lawsuit - in layman's terms?

RN: The actual lawsuit is Hernandez v. IGE. We filed it in Miami, where IGE has offices. In layman's terms, the core of the complaint is a consumer class action for unfair trade practices. Guys like Tony [Hernandez, the plaintiff] have paid their $15 for some entertainment, and IGE is polluting that entertainment. It's kind of like, if someone pays for a ticket to go see a movie, and if someone else comes in behind them and kicks their seat, you can get them to stop doing that. We're just trying to get IGE to stop kicking the seats. This is not unlike other consumer complaints where someone has paid for a service, and someone else is interfering with it. It's really very simple.

I think they can counter analogize with MMOG are more like a buffet. We each paid to get in and eat all we can. You can't sue the people who decide to eat 3 times their body weight.

I am pro-guns, but if there were some magical way to completely and absolutely ban arms of all sorts world-wide, I would be for it.

As for the C&C places, I feel that it lowers crime because most criminals prey on the weak. If there is a high likelyhood that their victim may also be carrying a firearm, they may think twice about it.

Also, won't we all feel silly when we find out the constitution had a typo and it really says the right to bare arms?

But then the jet plane comes in and blows shit up and I get all happy again in that special way. What can I say? The power of the American military makes me jump for joy.

It looks like the Military is the "bad guy" though since it seems they are shooting at McClain...

+1 for Kevin Smith though and his command center/basement...

Does anyone know if there is a way to get your quests to show up on the small map so I have some idea where they are?
You don't as far as I know. That was only a Vanguard thing to the best of my knowledge.
I thought WoW and SWG had this as well.... This is the only thing annoying so far. I can't find my quests too easily...

WoW never had this. Well, there was a little symbol that pops up when you're near a quest turn in, but nothing that directly guided you. And I never played SWG, so who knows.
Really? I haven't played for a while, but for some reason I remember little dots on the outer ring of the map or something. Maybe I am thinking of a different game?
