  1. You need better cooling like an ATI Silencer if you want to flash it to X800 XT.
  2. Poorly optimized buggy game and they have the nerve to say that it works with 256 MB RAM.
  3. I think it will be possible to download demos and patches on Xbox 360. I really want a console to replace this stupid PC. Get the soon to be released ATI X900 (the cheapest version) with 16 pipelines and Shader Model 3, buy Splinter Cell 3. There are very powerful PCs but EQ2 is one of the most poorly optimized games ever made.
  4. Console games receive a higher score because not much is expected from them, don't compare a PC to a console game. A PC game rated 8/10 can be better than a console game rated 9/10. San Andreas for PS2 has 9.5, the PC version would be 8.5-8.6. Those games are nominated by console fans and they admit it. What I need from a console: possibility to add more RAM mouse and keyboard support downloadable demos free patches, custom official content possibility to buy and download games a la Steam fan made content, I mean real fan made content not just characters and cars - probably never gonna happen EAX 5 sound card with digital out, 7.1 analog out and headphones jack PPU easy to develop for - not X360/PS3 DVI out connector and DVI to VGA adaptor online multiplayer without having to pay unless it's a MMORPG very good games including FPS, RTS and games that are best suited for PC (Silent Hunter III) When a console will have all that I'll buy it.
  5. http://archive.gamespy.com/articles/septem...3/25underrated/ Darwinia should be in the above article because it's an under-appreciated classic. If you're a gamer or a developer you have to buy this game, if you're a casual gamer buy it only if you can find it @ 30$. The devs announced that free extra content and an expansion will be available in the future, the community is developing mods to extend it. http://www.gametactics.com/reviews/pc/darwinia/index.htm http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=58149 http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B...1898916-7880446
  6. You get the rune of torment after you use the yellow sphere I think and the celestial host after you redeem (or was it kill) Trias; it's best to have Annah steal the celestial fire from Trias before talking to him. I can't see Torment lower than 9.4/10 all faults considered, it could have been 9.7-9.8 if released a year later.
  7. I got an answer a long time ago, something like "appropriate department is looking into this", whatever that means. Both PS3 and Xbox 2 games will be hard to program due to their awful but powerful architecture; these consoles will be so promoted that many people will buy them for the fact that they're the next generation and sadly the devs will be forced to develop games for them because most of the times the PC sales aren't enough (I'm not talking about HL2 and The Sims 2 here).
  8. Too bad the developers released it, patched it and forgot about it. There's no unofficial content patch, nothing to make the game as it was supposed to be; the fans don't know what the devs had in mind and there's a strange expansion in the works called Vengeance
  9. I just hope it has hammerites and a good story, that's what I need. Thief 1 is my favorite game even if Torment is better. If you have Thief Gold you should know there's a high resolution textures pack available: http://darkfate.iskratelecom.ru:81/FILEARC...ualPatchV09.exe ; there are other models and texture patches available at thief-thecircle.com , in the dark.cfg add: ObjTextures16 TerrTextures16 If you have a good PC and the Thief games run too fast enable vsync while you play them. I think Thief 3 will have good fan missions like these; there are hundreds of people working with the new Editor, some of them don't even want to say a word until their mission(s) is/are good and finished
  10. The real devs care more about the game than they care about themselves. These losers complained about the gaming industry and its problems.
  11. It never seemed that way to me, it was more like TNO taking advantage of the situation and manipulating a creature to serve him. Are you talking about the bronze sphere - nature of a man thing ? I thought its only purpose was to find the big name (you know like in the movies where the detectives say "I need a name"), get your memories (the exp.) and a weapon.
  12. It was nice to play evil after doing all those good things the first time, but after that I realized it's not as satisfying, it's the only game where I feel like I have to play good (I usually want to be evil) and from what I remember there are 2 tears which give +1 Con only for lawful good characters and there's Vhailor with +3 Str for very lawful players. In the end it's a pleasure to be equipped with all those items and tattoos (they are useful for a 40+ level mage) obtained by doing good things and some which can be used only by lawful good characters. The game is best played by a very lawful good (there are very few times when you have to be -1 good +1 evil or -1 law +1 chaos to get important bonuses) mage with both speciaizations.
  13. Athlon 64 3200+ socket 939 is clocked at 2000 MHz and has dual channel support; on socket 754, Athlon 64 3200+ has 2200 MHz for the 512 KB cache version and 2000 MHz for the 1 MB cache version but it doesn't have dual channel, AMD will produce CPUs only for socket 939 in the future (Athlon FX-55 is only for socket 939; the best socket 754 CPU is Athlon 64 3700+) and socket 1207 next year. The best now would be an Athlon 64 3500+ socket 939 (2200 MHz) which can be overclocked to 3 GHz. I don't know anthing about Intel CPUs and I don't care, let Dell buy them. Waiting for Athlon FX-57 and FX-59 for socket 939 ...
  14. People like me will always feem him the cash and complain about him, we are good people and he steals our money.
  15. Obsidian+Bethesda=Fallout 3 Obsidian+Irrational=System Shock 3 Obsidian+Fun.com=Planescape 2 Developers will never team up for great games, they have their own projects to worry about. I wonder if it was an accident that DOTT, Grim Fandango and Full Throttle were good games. Should I get Psychonauts ? Chris Avellone didn't write the Torment dialogue all by himself, he had professional help from very knowledgeable people that aren't at Obsidian but could be hired. Tim Schafer forgets that it's not his game it's the team's game; "it makes the world real" - I wonder how real is the world in Psychonauts ... This guy is funny, how the hell did he get in the industry "by accident" because it was great need of him ? Ken Levine wants to send a message to all the developers out there: I hate games with unskipable cutscenes, shame on you all who do these things, I want to make my own cutscenes when I play the game. #1: Chris from Avalon #2: Ragnar Tornquist #3: Ken Levine #4: those people who say that "they write the story" not "we write the story, we design games" it's like the games wouldn't exist without them Tim hates all those bad stories everywhere, Chris wants to beat some sense into Tim, Ragnar likes DoTT, Ken doesn't like Hideo's cutscenes and games and Hideo is all about games for the masses if you have to throw a story there to make the game more appealing and engaging then so be it.
