  1. Tranquility's Pwned Games of 2007 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Jan. 4, 2007 Call of Duty 2 - Jan. 6, 2007 Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Jan. 9, 2007
  2. Hopefully will get Dungeon Siege II if it doesn't play itself like the first iteration.
  3. BTW anyone see the E3 trailer for Quake IV? It psyched me up for the game, despite the fact that Raven are outright stealing striders from HL2.
  4. Sorry if there's been a thread about this before. Couldn't find any. http://www.xfire.com Does anyone use this program? It facilitates online play with friends by having in-game IM capabilities so friends can invite you from one game into another by sending you a message, it has a stats recorder, displays your hours played, has a built in download manager, etc. It can be helpful to arrange some spontaneous online play without having to arrange the whole thing and is a pretty nifty little program. Lets you save your recently visited and favourite servers so you can log onto them. There are a lot of supported games, even the BF2 demo is supported. My username is icecrown.
  5. W00t!! Just finished the UT2004 single player ladder. Damn, the fight in the final match against Xan in a 1 on 1 DM is tough as hell. Toughest finale I've seen for a while. The guy plays like real UT players because he tries to hog all the shield upgrades and the invisibility upgrade and throws everything at you. Really powerful bot. Managed to beat him eventually after about 15 tries.
  6. Folks, the Battlefield 2 demo will be out in less than an hour, over here: http://www.gamespot.com/promos/bf2demo.html It's exclusively debuting on gamespot, and u don't have to be a member to download it. Here's the gamespot thread about it: http://forums.gamespot.com/gamespot/show_messages.php?board=314159267&topic=21483868&page=0
  7. Thanks for the heads up. Downloading the drivers now just for the improvement in Halo, which I'm playing right now for the first time.
  8. C'mon now, you didn't really expect Nintendo to sell all their previous original IP games as part of this Revolution backwards-compatibility when they've been re-releasing all these original IP games with every new platform. Frankly I don't see the problem if they're priced at a reasonable 5-10$, but something extravagant would probably be a retarded move. Or they could couple these games with other Revolution games that you buy for instance, or in secret levels in games or something.
  9. Well I guess you'd be a good person to ask. Do sasquatches by default have to be hairy? (was just having an argument with a friend over this and I need it resolved)
  10. Well it looks like the older Nintendo games will almost definitely NOT be free downloads: http://www.joystiq.com/entry/1234000830045939/
  11. Mainly because I'm a PC gamer, I missed out on a lot of great console games, and from the reviews, these are what I feel bad about missing: 1) God of War 2) Devil May Cry 3 3) Ninja Gaiden 4) Halo 2 5) Tekken 5 6) Resident Evil 4 7) Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker There are quite a few PC games I missed because I only got into gaming early last year, but I have some of them but haven't played them yet, and others I might get for the cultural knowledge: 1) Starcraft 2) Warcraft II 3) Diablo II 4) Warlords Battlecry 5) Rise of Nations 6) Max Payne 7) Serious Sam: The Second Encounter I recently went on an old-game buying binge and got a few of the old(er) games. I got and played Half-life and the Opposing Force expansion, and I got Max Payne 2, Halo PC, Age of Mythology (not really old but I had missed out on it all this time), Diablo II, Warcraft II + expansion, Starcraft + expansion, MoHAA, Tiberian Sun + expansion.
  12. Probably nobody is that far into the game yet, but I'd appreciate any input on how difficult the flying aircraft missions are with a mouse/keyboard combo? I seem to remember people complaining a lot about this because the PS2 controller was a bit twitchy with it.
  13. Wow impressive. Don't know why it ran so bad on ours then.
  14. Really? It ran like crap on mine and a lot of other people I knew. A particular annoyance was the foliage. Some people turned it off to increase performance, so you'd be crawling in the grass thinking nobody can see you, before being popped in the head by a sniper who only saw some weirdo crawling around without cover :lmfao
  15. Particularly since Blizzard enjoys a really legendary status there after Starcraft, which sort of became a part of Korean pop culture. At some point they even had potato chips with Starcraft characters on the packages.
  16. Wow that's a huge percentage for the 2 Lineage games, despite the fact that the second one wasn't such a critical success. Any idea where Guild Wars stands now?
  17. Most of the issues usually arise when you're switching from an ATI to NVIDIA card or vice versa, but these instances crop up where installing a driver over another driver can cause problems, so it's better safe than sorry.
  18. Romier there's a much simpler way because ATI has a specific tool that does exactly all these things you mentioned. It uninstalls the display drivers and the control panel and reboots the PC so you can install new drivers. Here's the link: https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&folderID=27 It's the Catalyst uninstaller. Needs a little digging to find it initially, but its very useful.
  19. I really wanted to get this one but it seems its getting mediocre reviews everywhere. A lot of the problems are stemming from technical issues though, so maybe the PC version will iron some of those out.
  20. Yeah that's a good idea because it prevents all kinds of weird problems. There's an ATI utility called Catalyst Uninstaller that lets you do this. It's somewhere in the downloads on ATI's website.
  21. Thanks for the update. I've been lagging on updating my Catalyst drivers because the fixes they introduced in the last few updates weren't really applicable to me, but this seems like a sizeable improvement. Once again, thanks for the heads-up
