The word on the street is that the store bought game doesn't contain the main .exe file, among a few other very vital files. THIS is what the PC owners 'patch' when they try to install.

So, in short - unless you install somewhere you have a 'net connection (or get the missing files from somebody else), you're screwed.

So it sounds like I only need the internet for the initial install.  I have a small window of opportunity that I can get my pc hooked up for a long enough period to do just that.  There may be a chance yet.

...from someon without access to teh intraweb. icon_frown

I'm currently in transit on a cross country move and am going to be landing at a vacation cottage for a month starting sept. while we look for a place to live.  The cottage has no internet access so I will only be able to play offline games.  BUT I WANT TO PLAY BIOSHOCK NOW! 

Does it automatically load into my Steam account(I bought a box copy for pc)?  If so I guess I'm screwed, but if anyone knows a workaround I have an email...

Damnhell, guess I need to upgrade. Things would be so much easier if devs would just learn to scale all games for exactly my pc specs. But they're too lazy and selfishninja

Agreed.

AMD dual core 4400
2GB ram
7800gtx video card
onbord sound(has always been good)

Hmm.. this is the farthest I've fallen behind in recommended specs in a while.  It should still run decently enough.  It has to, damnit!  An upgrade is a long way off.  icon_frown

In case you were holding off this one till it was cheap.  That was for the cd version, not sure if the DVD is the same or not.

I just hope that the $9 price tag isn't because these copies of Prey come with no disc 2 and two disc 3's like mine did. retard

What an awful game.  The Ducks killed but the game was pretty boring.  The Sens looked tired and uncoordinated overall.  Not impressed am I.  Now we get to go back to Anaheim down 3-1.  Yay.

I know it hasn't been a great season but we gotta finish it!  I would love to get my hands on it if anyone has it.

Awesome.  The Sens looked good, though at times they seemed kind of non chalant about puck possession and gave it up easily.  Still, way to steal home ice away again!  Wooo!

I just watched the Buffalo/Ottawa brawl again on Youtube.  I think I might watch it before every game now. nod

That's our male to female ratio.

I see that one, Mr. Mike Dunn is 'Marketing Manager' for the site.  Where's his plan to address this gap?

So we're doing well in the core demographic, one can assume- perhaps too well.  But what about de weemen (how much for)?

They do make up 51% of the world or something...

I think Mike needs to put his fancy artist tools down and start crunching some numbers. GT could benefit from a feminine touch...(if a dirty joke popped into your head at reading 'feminine touch' that's just more support for the argument).

And don't think the man at the top, one Mr. Ronald "McDonald" Burke, is without blame.  How this has gone on for so long without being addressed is beyond me.


Are you kidding?  He brings women every sunday.

I think it is just the 1G model.  Still lookin' around tho'.  Thanks for the input. icon_smile

I doubt it'll be Lou that you'll be asking.

Gomez is a fierce player, it would be awesome to have him with the Canucks.  Breath some more life into 'em.

Can anyone read lips?  I would love to know what Brodeur said to Emery during the handshake.

Wooooooo!!!

(Just kidding - I can't say enough good things about Ray Emery)

Yeah, that was a good game.  Emery looked as good as he ever has, very sharp.  Nice to see Brodeur back on his game too.  He might be preventing a win for my Sens but I can't hate the guy in the least.  Great game over all.  Lets see if we can snag two home wins now!

OMFG the penalties!  If NJ wins tonight its because Ottawa is playing stupid. Brian Murray was pretty pissed about that second goal but the slow mo cam clearly showed it going in at 0.2 seconds before the end of the period.  AaauuuuuuGH!

Thanks - I wanted the Devils bias in there for the first one because it adds the element that I actually care what's going on and not just going through the motions.

When the Devs get bounced, there won't be as much of a bias, but I, at least need a rooting interest...

It was a bit tough to kick off before the games actually start because I didn't want to get too stat heavy and deep into it without something real to compare it to.

It might take some time, but I appreciate the feedback as I work to get the whole thing down.

Reality is much harsher than the video game.  Lets see if the Sens can capitalize on that PP starting 3rd period. Tongue

Regardless of the loss, Kiprusoff deserves a raise.  He was the only Flame the entire series that played worth a crap.

gellar

I agree completely.  Apparently the crowd did too.

Looks like my Sens will be facing NJ again.  This'll be a good series and should turn out better than their last match up against the Devils.  Ottawa is finally using their balls in the playoffs.

Oh, and with the current versions once you go into the power plant from Pripyat apparently you cannot go back, so you want to make sure to have a savegame right before you enter just in case you decide you didn't stock up on the right items.  Of course, exiting Pripyat to go back to the Red Forest may be an adventure in itself.....

Make damn sure you have a save game before the Power Plant, as not only can't you get back, but you can get to choose between a bunch of endings if you still have that save handy.

 icon_eek

I read this thread 10 minutes too late.  I got a little trigger happy with the quick saves and am now stuck in the power plant wearing bums rags and no way to get back.  No health packs are my biggest problem right now.  Anyone have a save game?

199  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [MUSIC CONCERTS)Who have you seen and who do you wish you could see? on: April 12, 2007, 01:38:00 AM
I'm coming to realize that I haven't been to enough music concerts.  I've never had a bad time a a concert, and wish I could get to more.

I've seen Radiohead(f*ing awsome in concert), The Tragically Hip(Good 'ol coked up Canadian boys) a few times, The Headstones, and System of a Down during the tour they did with the release of Toxicity.  I felt as if I had been drug into an alley and had the shit beaten out of me after that concert.  Awesome.

I've also seen about five songs of a Nickelback concert.  It was a gift from mother in law(god bless her for trying) to myself, wife, brother in law and bro in laws friend.  Bro in law grew a 'Nickelstache' for the concert as a joke.  We ended up drinking in Wok with Yans former condo until the concert was almost over and showed up during that 'pants around your feet' song(blech).  Yes, some (if not many) Canadians hate Nickelback.

I still want to see Nine Inch Nails.  I've always liked their stuff and am glad that Trent is still making it work.  Right now Survivalism is stuck in my head beside Wish. 

I'd also like to see Beck.  I've always liked a few aspects of his music.  I just never seem to be in the right place at the right time.

I'd love to see Radiohead again too. 

Any kind of concert will do.  I'm kind of hoping this will turn into a music thread where I can find out about other music out there.  I've come across a lot of music tastes here and have gotten into some stuff other people have talked about. 

Oh yeah, and Ron, what is the name of that Rush song where the base guitar starts out do-do-do-do-doodle-dooodle-do-do-do-do-do-doodle-doodle-do?

RENTED?!
Mister, go put on your browncoat and support the Whedonites THIS INSTANT, and BUY.

Yes, Firefly would have been the one to see prior, but now it will be a nostalgiac trip as Wash jabbers about being a leaf on the wind.

I will probably buy it and watch it again buy only once I've watched Firefly.  Was there only one season or is it more like a miniseries?  I suppose I could actually use the internet myself to find out.
