I thought I'd link this issue as well. Just because so many have forgotten that Halo was originally destined for the Mac.

Spoiler for Hiden:
>>To get on the way to the best ending, as well as a hell of a lot more content, you need to aquire both the gold and silver rings. 

don't have these...

>>The hardest to get is the silver ring in the upper left of the castle as you need the spike armor + mist to get it.

spike armor? i don't have that either.

i've been unable to get into the water areas - should i have found the 'underwater protection' thingee by this time?

maybe it's time to upgrade?  Tongue

oh, but i just did! a friend gave me her PSOne that she didn't need anymore, and i'm now using it... my original PlayStation was purchased from a garage sale for $20 (with a forgotten Tomb Raider 2 disc inside the drive) in 2001 and is starting to stutter and skip during movies/cinematics... as i think all the old ones do at some point.

i've been trying over the past year and a half to get all gold medals on the single races in Wipeout 3 - i'm about a third of the way through. :/  takes forever..

got the really crummy ending in Castlevania: Symphony of the night, and i can't figure out how to get past that...

meandering around in ChronoCross, - not sure what i'm doing and feeling like it's going to take about 80 more hours to complete this game.

and started Silent Hill last night, absolutely hating the controls.

got Syphon Filter on for $0.75 plus shipping - excited to try that out.

i was totally looking forward to both games... but the UT3 demo looks not very good on my computer (and it won't apply the graphical settings properly), while the Crysis demo refuses to run at all.

777  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: RE4 Suggestions on: September 20, 2007, 05:17:18 AM
you might also have discovered, if you did not patch the game right away, that shader support is completely missing.  downloading the patch and enabling shaders will make the game *noticeably slower (like with STALKER) - hope your PC can handle it...

if this becomes a trend in the future, it would make it very easy for me to save money by not buying games anymore..

i stopped using SUSE after they were bought out by Novell (and switched to Ubuntu), but the eye-candy is pretty nice with this newest build.  KDE has never looked better - finally 3D acceleration has been optimized from the start!
787  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft trying to kill PC gaming? on: June 06, 2007, 09:40:04 AM
Because frankly, if it wasn't for gaming, a whole lot of us would already have Macs, or be running Ubuntu Linux and never looking back.

i'm nearly there - running Ubuntu on my desktop and i recently purchased a secondhand G3 iBook. if the "Games for Windows" initiative goes just how Microsoft wants it (eg. micro-payments/pay-for-content/monthly subscriptions), i don't see commercial Windows gaming having a place in my future.  as it stands, the only "triple-A" title released over the past two years that i've had any desire to play is Civilization IV.  i also have little interest in MMORPGs.
788  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: All-time PC gaming disappointments on: June 05, 2007, 08:45:08 AM
Carmageddon TDR 2000 - i shouldn't have expected a masterpiece in the first place, but they somehow managed to remove all the fun that i had had in Carmageddon 2.

Serious Sam 2 - classic example of an 'overproduced' game.  Croteam got an actual budget for the sequel and went crazy on the animations, models, physics, cutscenes, making it bigger and shinier... and i gave up at the swamp level, not too far in. a bunch of little differences all over the place that add up to a less habit-forming playing experience.  and the first two games have some of my favorite gaming experiences's weird.

Max Payne - built a whole new computer based on the 'optimal' system requirements i read in a PC Gamer preview - then found out the game itself was a dull Tomb Raider-like shooter (minus  the acrobatics) with a really overdone Chandler-wannabe narrative.  it may be a wee bit of an overstatement to say i started to lose faith in the current gaming industry due to this experience... maybe...

the last two albums (_Group Therapy_ and _Mojave_) were rather uninspiring, but i've got all their other ones, and have seen Johnette Napolitano solo and the Concrete Blonde reformation (in 2002, i think?).  how could you not* like "Still in Hollywood"...

793  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Need to Resize a XP Partition; Which Tool? on: May 10, 2007, 07:57:26 PM

Quote from: kronovan on May 10, 2007, 07:28:10 PM

How well will Gparted work for resizing a drive that already contains an installation of XP and a multitude of games?
 I really don't want to have to reinstall all my games and I don't have any backup medium large enough to do the entire drive; game saves and patch downloads are currently backed up.
I haven't worked with any flavour of Linux for about 5 few years, so I'm a little hesitant with this solution. If others have used this for scenarios like mine I'm willing to give it a try. I also don't have a clue where you get the Linux Live CD-ROM; how do I aquire it?

i've used it in a situation similar to yours and it works great.  i really recommend the Knoppix liveCD - it's a fantastic disc-bootable OS as well.

i was holding off on playing it, but after i found out it was 'Vista-only'... i went and bought a second-hand Xbox copy for $8  frown

i honestly don't know if i want to install Vista... or deal with Microsoft-anything if i can possibly help it.  i'm at the point where i'm really leaning towards keeping XP as a secondary installation and going with Ubuntu on the desktop and OSX on the mac laptop.

i've only ever played the demo for the new Burnout on a friend's Xbox360, and that was just for a few minutes - but it was enough that i thought i should get the game for my own (old) Xbox.

traffic checking was fun, too bad 3 doesn't have that.
