I just setup two GeForce 8800Gts in SLi and for some reason WoW's framerates have taken a nose dive. It went from rock steady 70FPS with one card to 20FPS with SLi. Anyone have any suggestions on what SLi settings I should be using with WoW?

Sirius Satellite Radio. (SIRI - parent company; about 1,000 employees; stock down 96%).

When your competition is free, what do you expect?

Yeah but going back to the competition after having satellite is like going back to dial up after having DSL, it is painful. Sirius will make it through the year one wa or another, there are talks of a hostile take over though and that may shake things up. But 20 million or so subscriptions will keep it afloat.

To me it comes down to cost. When can they launch a new system and keep it under $300? In Nintendo's case they could probably do that next year if they wanted to, but they won't because the Wii is killing. With Sony and MS they are still losing money on their consoles, which means that with newer and faster consoles they will lose even more money.

If we have learned anything this gen it's that parent's will shell out $200 for their kids console, but not a whole lot of them are willing to shell out $400 to $500 for their kids video games.

Well, I was planning to play tonight, until my son flushed the metal dowel from the toilet paper holder down the toilet.

I'm now Beyond Good & Stinky, and we have a big hole in our floor where the toilet used to be.

Dude, at some point things need to stay flushed. Anyway this last week was a bad gaming week for me so I didn't make any progress. I look to play the heck out of it starting today though.

I discovered GG from PC Gamer as well and joined back in 2000. I have no idea what # I was. I do miss that site and good Rich. Evil Rich sucked but we did get GT out of it which I think is a far superior site since Ron realizes he can't do it all by himself and actually has a support staff.

I wonder if there is anyone in the modern era with more than 500 HRs who wasn't on the Roids. At this point the only player I can think of who hasn't been accused is Griffey Jr. Which if he hasn't taken them then it makes his 600 look all that more incredible.

Played the PS3 demo, my worst fears about the co-op play are true. The stupid B is useless and just gets in your way. After about 4 minutes of play time  she was already annoying the hell out of me. If I am aiming at zombies please for the love of god do not stand in front of me, stay the hell behind me. I will still buy this game and play through it, but I doubt it will be anywhere near as good as RE4 when it first came out.

I can look past the controls, I can look past the animations, but if I constantly have to shoot through the stupid partner then I will hate this game.

Sometimes when all the scans fail it could indicate a hardware failure. In this case your HD may be dying. Just one potential problem, but I would recommend backing up all your important files just in case your HD is about to bite it.

I had never played this before, and currently the PC version is a bit wonky in the control department and I get some graphics glitches.  I really dislike the controls so far as I tend to not go the direction I thought I would half the time.

Also on music...I honestly can't say I have noticed any music at all so far, but perhaps that is just something I don't pay enough attention to.

I am in the Ancient Mines, snapping pictures like crazy.  I am hoping there won't be too much gameplay in the hovercraft, that short portion I played so far was pretty weak to me compared to the rest of the game.

THe keyboard controls do suck, if you have a gamepad you should be able to use that instead.

Started the game about an hour into it. Two words so far: Fart Boots.

This game is a gem.

I quit because my single core laptop with a GeforceGo 7800 gtx card ran the game like a bottle of 34 degree pancake syrup being poured.

Now I have an i7 2.66 ghz, 6 Gigs of ram, and 2 Geforce 280's running in SLI.     I want to try it again, but I'm playing WoW again now......   

Having those specs and wasting them on WoW should be a crime.

I didn't have this game, so I ordered it from a couple of days ago, just in case it won. It should arrive in a week or so. I'll start playing once it gets here.

I have to admit, I know almost nothing about this game. I've seen it so many times in used game bins, but always thought it looked like shovelware. I never realized it was as highly regarded as it is. I'm actually really looking forward to playing the game, as it's rare when I play something with so little idea of what it's about.

I'm also very interested to see how many of us make it through the whole game. With older games, sometimes the challenge can be just getting the game to run properly (or even just getting the game in the first place).

From what I remember the first time I played it, the game takes about 15 hours to beat, so most of us should be able to finish within the month easy.

The women in Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, so HOT. If I went back to any of those countries I would have to be single, because otherwise I would be in trouble. I recommend finding a nice cafe with a window facing a busy street and just watching the women walk by for an hour or so. You will thank me. Of course right now it's probably super cold there so they won't be out in force our wearing revealing clothes.

Just a note about the legendary weapons. You can actually start the Epic quest to get them at lvl 45. Once the quest line is done you will receive your first legendary item. I finished it at lvl 46 and had no problems with difficulty. The best part is that it's a solo quest line so you won't be dependent on other people to get your weapons. I'm noe lvl 47 and I have two legendary weapons over lvl 10.

Nekim - Level 3 Champion

Server:  Elendilmir

Is anything happening on Elendilmir with GT?

Blackjack and I are both on there. Look me up as Hanton. We're in separate guilds, but I like mine pretty well. It's a casual guild with friendly people who are usually willing to help out if they can. While its not a huge guild there is almost always someone on and at peak times there are usually several people on. Look me up in game if you need anything.

I am now at level 16 and enjoying the game. Seems like WoW with a different skin.

Scraper can you invite me to your guild? I think it is time to join one because some group quest are starting to become the norm and people that I do a fellowship with always disband after a quest is complete.

I see you on all the time but I am fairly low level compared to you so I don't send message. I haven't seen blackjack on much.

Sure can, what times are you usually on. I will make it a point to look you up tonight.

The 64 is a solid machine and I haven't heard of any wide spread hardware failures with it. If you are going to go out on a limb and buy any older gaming machine I would say that the Nintendo Systems are the most solid hardware wise. Just my two cents.

I didn't see the fight, but I have seen several Arlovski fights and he seems to be the type of fighter that can beat anyone in the world on any given night, but he never really destroys people and thus leaves himself open to being beaten on any given night. Don't get me wrong the dude is scary and I wouldn't want him mad at me, but I don't think he will ever be remembered as one of the best fighters of this generation.

I'm looking for a Geforce 8800GT to pair with my existing card. Does anyone out there have a spare one they want to unload. Right now I have the vanilla XFX Geforce 8800GT 512 Mb version. Any manufacturer should do though as long as it is the same chip set.

It sounds like my worst fears for the co-op gameplay may be true. I loved RE 4, but If I had to babysit a brain dead AI team mate the entire time, the game would have been ruined. I hope the team mate isn't annoying.

How do we think we'd do this? Open up discussion on a particular section at a time so people don't have to worry about getting spoiled?

Ah...I was thinking one thread per game, but I hadn't considered the issue of spoilers.

One thread per game section would be one way to do it, but I wonder if that would fracture the discussion so much that it would be hard to follow, and it would clutter up the forums.

A couple of other ideas...

  • Have only one thread, but ask people to mark things with spoilers.
  • Have two threads, one for general impressions and discussion, and another thread for plot/story spoiler elements.

I'd lean toward the simpler one thread plan, and ask people to take care to use spoiler tags with direct spoilers. To a certain degree, I'd expect that it will be impossible to prevent some foreknowledge from coming out in even general discussions about the game, but I'd imagine we could still talk about the game and avoid ruining the game for people. At certain points, we might ever "release" the spoiler restrictions on earlier segments of the game. For example, after the second week, we could not worry about spoiler tags for the first 10 levels of a game, or the 30% of the story, or whatever. If that doesn't work, we could try something else the second game.

I'm open to other ideas and feedback, though. As I was writing the first post up, I stumbled onto a small web community that was doing something similar to this. I'll see if I can find that again and learn what they did about handling spoilers.

I would go with one thread and use the hide spoiler function. These games are all old though and most people will have a clue as to what will happen with the story.

I believe it goes down to 640x480 and has standard resolutions from there. The PC version is essentially a console port.

Why don't you cross post this over in Console gaming and pick a couple of multiplatform games to post on a poll. We then let the people vote on what the game of the month in February will be. For example you could give the option of, Beyond Good and Evil, Resident Evil 4, The Darkness, Tomb Raider Anniversary. These are all multiplatform and that way no matter which one wins people will be able to play the winning game.
