962  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What years comprise your own "Golden Age" of PC Gaming? on: June 09, 2008, 07:53:15 PM
Another C64 vet here. I would have to say that my golden age ranged from about '84 to 92, encompassing Ultima 4-7, Autoduel, Ultimate Wizard, and countless other games that I love to this day. It also reminds me of having sleepovers at my cousin's house and playing games all night. Just a lot of great memories that force me to constantly upgrade my PC to this day. Damn you, great games of yesteryear.

As an aside, though I agree fully that Chad Johnson is a whiny, selfish prima donna, I don't think that he is in the same category as Pacman and Chris Henry or Michael Vick. Has he even been arrested or suspected of a crime? A lot of players demand trades and threaten to sit out. I'm not saying that he's right in this particular instance, but it's not on par with dogfighting.

Anyone know how much of a spoiler that may (or may not) be?  icon_confused

I've only read about 100 pages into it, but the story about Geralt and the Strega is covered in the opening cinematic. It's not really a spoiler as that doesn't really factor into the actual game plot; it's there to show the player what a witcher does.

Yeah that's pretty much nonsense. A lot of people in the US don't even have access to broadband, and you're talking about physical media being dead and everybody having home fiber optic connections within the next five years. If / when it happens, the US certainly won't be the one leading the pack. I wonder how feasible it would be today for say, Japan or western Europe, though.

I don't know about the rest of Western Europe, but I live about an hour out of Franfurt, and the best I can get in this area (which is hardly backwoods) is a DSL 1000 connection, due to the phone lines. The future may be near, but the infrastructure has yet to catch up. This is undoubtedly true for much of the US, especially in much of the suth and quite a bit of the the rest of the country outside of populated areas that have the cable/phone lines to support it.

aye, the only reason I never played the series is because of the terrible control scheme.

That's a silly reason to miss out on such a great series (especially I & II). It's a little different from the norm, not rocket science.

The movie should have had no sequels, spinoffs, etc made. Same with Starship Troopers... but there should have been a Showgirls 2...

Highlander.

I guess that a case could be made that Highlander is a conceptual and thematic sequel for Showgirls, despite the former predating the latter by over a decade. That's a very interesting point. Thanks, TK-421.

Good luck and thanks, Rip.  I think for a lot of people it was surprising just how fragile the internet can be - at least it was for me.  Don't think that many of us don't appreciate your efforts, but keep in mind that it is hard to do so if there is little communication about what is happening.  Get some rest.

True and I appreciate that. I am just tired and relieved. Probably a little grumpy. Haven't had anything good to pass along in a few days and too tired to formulate any effectual communication. No time for rest yet, have a day full of hectic work ahead. Maybe tonight.

Rip, a lot of folks are very grateful to you for voluntarily hosting OO over the years.  You should never feel unappreciated.

Wait, two kids had sex and the girl ended up pregnant?!?!? My stars! Famous or not, she's a young girl who made a choice that a lot of kids make. She's hardly special in that regard (as is the father). I sincerely hope for the best for both of them as raising that baby will require sacrifices (probably by her), money or not. Frankly, this is the most normal story to come from the Spears family in quite a while.

I just finished the game (my GOTY) and aside from the long load times, I did run into a few CTDs in Act V, whereas I had none prior. I don't know if it was a coincidence that it only happened in Act V, but the game autosaves so much that I never lost any real progress. Again, the best RPG that I've played in a long time and was one of the few games in the past few years that I not only beat, but was actually sad after it was over.

Some people consider Christianity to be cultlike. It's not rocket science.

Pasting a blanket statement of 'cult' to a whole religion is quite a stretch.  So, no it's not rocket science, but it's not accurate either.

The irony in that statement is hilarious.

How could anybody think spaceballs is not funny?

They watched Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and History of the World Part I and realized what funny was truly about.

How is, "I'm a Mog; half man, half dog.  I'm my own best friend", not funny?  I don't see it.

Because this

Quote
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What knockers.
Inga: Oh, thank you doctor.

is way funnier.

Quote
Inga: Werewolf!
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Werewolf?
Igor: There.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What?
Igor: There, wolf. There, castle.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Why are you talking that way?
Igor: I thought you wanted to.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No, I don't want to.
Igor: Suit yourself. I'm easy

is better than anything in Spaceballs. I promise this is the last derail on this subject from me.
