  1. Looks like Dems won the House and may yet get the Senate. It's going to be a long two years. But after two years of their unique blend of American socialisim, massive tax increases, and nasty condescending attitude towards all things traditionally American, the voters will show them the door in 2008. Just like in 1996.
  2. So lets see, this year I got to choose between a Republican Party who could not lead a drunk to a bar, or a band of raving communists who took over the Democratic Party in 2000. Ugh! I voted republican top to bottom but felt like I needed to take a shower afterwards. Once again choosing the lesser of two evils.
  3. I wonder, is it really fair to compare NWN2 to NWN as it is today? I mean, NWN 1.69 is a hell of a long way removed from 1.0. For example, after 5 years we have unlockable cameras, ridable horses, CEP, etc, etc, etc, etc. All of which were done by modders or Bioware keeping up with modders. If there are aspects about the game you don't like, just wait a bit. Bugs? They'll be fixed. Heck the game has aready had a patch so we are off to a great start. With the exceptions of new animations (going to be hard to get around that one) there will be haks and overrides aplenty within the coming weeks.
  4. Don't know what it is Kaftan, but take heart, you ain't it!
  5. For a non fiction book to get lost in, "Winterdance" by Gary Paulsen would be fun. For fiction, hands down "A Salty Piece of Land". Tully Mars is a literary figure I can definitely identify with!
  6. Looks better, runs worse. What does it tell you when a game gets patched 8 days after release. Wait a while for a few patches, or modders to fix this one. Plus the way it's going it might be in the bargin bin in no time.
  7. FYI all. Do NOT buy this game. It is a bug loaded NIGHTMARE. Crashes to desktop frequently, switches to windowed mode spontaneously, etc. And looking at their forums, I am far from the only one. Forewarned is forearmed.
  8. LA is a problem because their post-release support is nil. They throw games over the fence and never mind whatever bugs they may have. The average number of patches on Atari games is 3. On LA it'a .97.
  9. Why the heck would a PC gamer be pissed at a console port of a PC only game? Or vice versa? Who the heck cares anyway? Of all the things in the world to be pissed about that has got to be near the bottom of the list. There are games you can play and some you can't. If porting NWN2 to console makes the brand name more succesful then I'm all for it. So long one version does not get "dumbed down" to accomedate the other. Oblivion anyone?
  10. Nuts to KOTOR 3. No matter who makes it LucasArts will still be involved and the ARE the problem. More than anything else I'd like to see them run with NWN2. NWN was the gift that kept on giving for 5 years now. With a few expansions, premium content and a little TLC, there is no reason NWN2 can't keep it going another 4 or 5.
  11. GalCiv 2 is fair at best. The campaign gameplay is well done but the interface leaves a lot to be desired. The lack tactical combat is a huge problem with that game.
  12. SE5 is out. Has anyone tried it yet? I keep thinking a 4X game will come along and revive the genre like MOO2 did but I wonder if this is it. All of the forums complain about bugginess but do not get into details of the game mechanics. The Demo game crashes constantly. Anyone seen it, tried it, have any thoughts on it? Even heard of it?

    I thought after surviving that 9th inning Cardinal rally in game six the Mets were a lock in game 7. But, the Cards are a great team. I'm pulling for them in the WS. But then, I always root for the NL because the DH rule sux.
  14. I just put in for a weeks vacation beginning October 31!!!! Congrats Obsidian, I can't wait to see it!
  15. You, sir, are a hero of epic proportions for giving all those dogs a loving home. Dogs are fantastic. I've always had a dog in the house growing up, and I love 'em. Once I get settled and get a house with a yard (for room to run... gotta have room for them to run) I'll go get one from a local animal shelter. Probably won't be for another year or so, though. I feel the need to assert that dogs are great.. probably because the denizens of this board seem to favor cats. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Thank you for the kind words. But I'm no hero. Just lucky to be able to help. And b
  16. No pics of me on this computer, but I do have pics of 8 of my best friends. From right to left Cosmo, Zoe, Gator Bait, Tommy, Macy, Oliver, Cheyenne, Desiree. Cosmo was recued from an abusive home, Zoe was found in the Katrina aftermath swimming in a flooded paking lot in Miss. Tommy and Oliver were pulled from a shelter the day they were to be put to sleep. Ditto for Gator. Macy was wandering around downtown Ft Lauderdale when we found her. Cheyenne was found walking next to I-95. Desiree was found nearly starved to death near Big Cypress in the everglades. Most likely she had been driven out
  17. Actually, Bioware has spoiled it's bboard crowd. Their devs frequently post and usually will answer an intelligent question. The DA forum in particular has a really high amount of dev participation. It's easy to forget that is not the norm. Even here, except for Josh, the obs devs almost never post here.
  18. Consider THAT done! Happy Birthday!
  19. West Palm Beach, FL. I help run a dog rescue here and live on the edge of the everglades with 16 of the best friends you could ever ask for!
  20. Heh! Yeah, THAT never happens, right? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Yes? :ph34r: <{POST_SNAPBACK}> KOTOR2. It has become politically incorrect to say that around here. But... Q.E.D!
  21. A Master of Orion 4 that will make us all forget MOO3. With a modern 3D engine, terrestrial and space combat (tactical AND strategic). High levels of race, ship, and technological customization. That would be great.
