I should go back to this game, sadly, the lack of servers with decent pings makes it tougher to play MP. That and the fact that I keep getting killed is annoying, lol.
82  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 in production!! on: October 04, 2011, 03:51:01 AM
I tried it last night for a few rounds and I found out that I completely suck at FPS now.

There are some glaring bugs, like the weirdly looking prone bug sometimes and I got stuck on the ground once while in prone. But overall, it's a fun game, that is if I can stay alive long enough to kill anyone and get my K/D ratio above 1, lol.

The tac light is VERY annoying, though useful for the person wielding it, I can't see them to target them.

Surprisingly, I found a pretty decent number of beta servers in Singapore, so I can have a decent ping (roughly 100, give or take), not ideal but beats 300 pings any day.

I think I'll be pre-ordering this one, maybe after the beta is over.

At first I thought this was a Thai movie but upon further reading, it turns out to be an Indonesian movie. This is the first Indonesian movie that I'm actually excited about seeing, considering the local movie scene is mostly crap this is a very nice change for once.

87  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Island on: September 07, 2011, 02:01:29 AM
So it's worth getting then? Even with all the bugs so far?
88  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Island on: September 06, 2011, 04:11:28 AM
I'm so interested in this game but I'm debating whether or not it'll be worth it for me since MP may not be as feasible with the pings and lack of local servers. Good thing it won't be unlocking til Sept 9 for my part of the world, so I have some time to wait for reviews before deciding if it's a buy or not.

With that, bring on the impressions!!  icon_smile

If you get it from Greenman (Assuming the sale code is still good) you get the DD version for 35$.  Check the deals forum.

Greenman code still works. I just picked it up for $34 (to the detriment of my wallet).
90  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Orchestra 2 - STEAM on: September 05, 2011, 01:07:23 AM
Does the regular version on Steam includes the beta access or is that only for the digital deluxe edition?

I'm still planning to pick this up but probably on the last day of the sale if the beta access isn't included with the regular version.
91  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Impressions and stuff! [Official Review too!] on: September 05, 2011, 12:48:54 AM
I usually stock up on EMP, gas and frag nades and mines prior to boss battles. I find those to be pretty effective for killing bosses.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I finished the game and I don't remember any of the bosses being immune to EMP and gas

I wish the grenades would stack up in the inventory though.

oh - Sorry to hear that - In europe the ping on Harks server is pretty damn good though, so you might be surprised

When I tried connecting to US servers for different games, my average ping is around 300-350. Not quite good enough for FPS.
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Impressions and stuff! [Official Review too!] on: September 03, 2011, 03:17:44 PM
I got a question for the pacifist achievement. Does turning turrets and bots to attack enemies counts as them being killed by "your hand"?

I noticed when I did that, even though I get them going hostile, I still got the "ghost" experience.
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Orchestra 2 - STEAM on: September 03, 2011, 03:11:37 PM
I want to get it but in my part of the world, the MP is hopeless with the pings I get and lack of local servers.

I may still get it though.

Spoiler about Malik


Spoiler for Hiden:
Saving Malik brought a smile to my face for some reason. Btw, I blew my pacifist achievement saving her


Awesome . Awesome, Awesome game

Just past that part a little bit and I went back and replayed it. Didn't know that could happen. Thanks! I also blew that achievement but no regrets doing it.

Won't be unlocking in my part of the woods for another 2 days and 15 hours crybaby
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: From Dust on: August 21, 2011, 04:07:36 PM
I finished it yesterday and I loved it.

I don't like the Ubisoft Uplay crap but the game runs pretty beautifully on my rig at 1920x1080. It probably could look better but the gameplay makes up for the lack of eye candy.
98  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Please use Spoiler tags on: August 08, 2011, 04:39:08 AM
It just started playing here in Jakarta after the import ban of foreign movies and I watched it over the weekend.

I don't think it was too bad, the action scenes were a bit much at times but it was entertaining since I had no expectations going in.

Can't believe no one mentioned Alan Tudyk's Firefly reference!
99  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pirates of the Black Cove on: August 04, 2011, 04:34:36 AM
I tried the steam demo last night and uninstalled the demo right afterwards. The game is way too arcadey for my taste. The graphic is nice but as for gameplay, I'd rather go back to Sid Meier's Pirates! remake.

Apparently the tegra 2 has some exclusive games.  Are any of them good/must haves?

Galaxy on Fire 2 THD is nice for Tegra2, it's free up to a certain point then you have to pay $15 to unlock the rest of the game.

3rd-party DRM: Ubisoft Online Service

about the only saving grace so far is that it doesn't have the additional line 'Ubisoft requires a permanent Internet connection to play this video game at all times' yet.

This may prevent me from buying it. Not because I'm boycotting Ubisoft due to their draconian DRM scheme but because in my neck of the woods, the internet is like the electricity, they go down and random times.

Good for killing time in a productive way I think.
108  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Google+ on: July 07, 2011, 06:42:21 AM
Looks like it filled up again.

If you got an invite but not able to join, keep the email and periodically check it to see if they're letting more people in. My original invitation was emailed to me about 3 days ago and I just got in today.
109  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Google+ on: July 07, 2011, 02:49:02 AM
So looks like they opened it for more people, I just got in. If you already have an invite better jump on it before they close it again  icon_biggrin

If you need an invite, you can PM me.

Edit: Also looks like you can join without an invite, at least my coworker was able to earlier today, not sure about now.

I'd really like friends that we could do things with - hit the movies, play some board games, have em over for Rock Band, burn some meat on the grill, go camping, etc. etc.   Yea, these people should 'get' me and we should be able to talk.    Best friends come from that same pool, after trust is built I think.

I find that when my close friends get married and have families of their own, the hang out time diminish significantly, especially after kids come into the picture. Not saying it's not possible anymore but it is tougher to arrange.

It's been good for me.

- Proposed to my gf and getting married next January
- Started going back to the gym on a regular basis
- Happy with my current job
- Good health for me and my parents

The first half is going swimmingly well and hoping it'll continue this way for the next foreseeable future.

Happy birthday Ron!

I'm one of those people with very few friends but the few I call my friends are pretty darn close, the rest are just acquaintances. I tend to keep my co-workers as work friends only and hardly ever hang out with them outside of work, and most of the friends I hang with are friends from high school and new friends that know my friends, and a few from the forums that I've met.

Sorry, not really helping in the "how to make new friends" department.

Download a Linux LiveCD and use their partition tool (GParted).

Be careful when you resize a live drive though, you may end up making the data gone. Make sure you have sufficient backup of everything important.

Huw, any update on which distro you like best now?

My work just sent me to Linux training, so I have some basics along with stuff I picked up at work. Work basically uses CentOS 5.5 with KDE and I'm kind of looking for a decent distro to learn on. So far, I've tried Ubuntu (with KDE installed), OpenSUSE, Mandriva and currently trying out Sabayon. All these are on VMs since I don't have a dedicated machine for it yet.

Right now I'm most familiar with CentOS since that was what I use at work and what I was trained on. I don't like the Unity on Ubuntu 11.04, just seems weird to me. I like the look of OpenSUSE, it's very polished. So far, Sabayon is pretty nifty as well. However, I'm running all these on Virtualbox VMs, so they just run fine, no hardware issues, lol.

I guess I'll give them a try and see which one I like best. Right now, I'm leaning towards Ubuntu (with KDE) and OpenSUSE.
