  1. Don't remember it. remember the film though... anjelina Jolie as a computer geek.. its a dream come true.
  2. Oustanding Game even if the online authentication and offline mode (that requires you to have an internet connection anyway) are ludicrous. But yeah I've had an amazing time. just getting into designing custom sprays now Good luck with Bloodlines. i think I posted on another thread a while back that i got no problems with 1GB of physical memory.. I have to retract that now, as I just started replaying as anohter clan. I got no problems on 1GB of memory for the first hour to hour and half of gameplay. then it just grinds to a halt. got a 128MB Graphics card 1800XP processor, Soundblaster Audigy (I think these are respectable specs, not top of the range but not too shabby) have fully defragged everything, and cleaned up the drives, got 3 GB of swapfile space. And still it is choppy. This is on on the minimum settings and lowest resolution, with no hardware sound. (And theres not many settings to alter anyway). Personally I reckon if Troika had the time and support HL2 had with patches half these issues could have been fixed, as by all accounts HL2 didn't have the best of starts, a lot of similar issues have been fixed now. Oh yeah and if you don't already know what they are going on about with dog, well you will soon. one of my favourite supporting cvharacters ina game for a while
  3. I'm pretty sure the original exe file is on the first disc somewhere its the last file to be installed. have a look might save you some hassle
  4. I'm particularly disrurbed by the 'Leia Slave outfit'. I'm not sure what kind of relationship they are suggesting their customers might have with their pets. "
  5. Just finished Half Life 2. And boy do i hate Steam. But on balance I gotta say it was a truly satisfying game, apart from the cliffhanger ending that seems to be the cliche of 2004.
  6. I believe there was a post about a day ago saying it is still on its way. in the end there have been updates, probably one per week or two but its hard keeping abreast of them in the quagmire of speculation about 'how crap the patch' is going to be and 'obsidian sucks' etc ad finitum. Thing is the post was as before, 'sorry we are working on getting it released but its really in LAs hands now.' Which to some of us is, albeit a little dissapointing, an acceptable answer. To others this translates as 'screw you Mr Customer, we have not moved mountains in order to placate your righteous fury at being sold a steaming dog turd, one which we have forcefed you without chutney no less.'
  7. ? what about traci lords? taks <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I was thinking that. But didn't wanmt to souind more knowledgeable about porn than the next person. :"> (w00t)
  8. Maybe there's stuff happening they can't talk about ...diclosure agreements and all that. *shrugs* either way I said it before and I said it again. Constant updates still won't keep some people happy. They'll still be unhappy because it wasn't released the day they had a problem, and a daily repeat of 'its not coming out yet, it will be soon' is only going to make them more annoyed, invite flame attacks against devs. and generally fuel the fires. If I were the devs, I'd probably keep fairly quiet until I have something to actually tell the customers.
  9. To an extent yeah i think you're right. If you were to argue which cliffhanger was closer to 'Luke gets his hand chopped off, Hand gets sent off in carbonite and the whole 'I am your father' thing.' KOTOR2 was much more effective, even if it did seem rushed. I expect if a more of the loose ends had been tied off from the storyline, with only a few more left, there would have been less of a feeling that you must have missed a chunk of the game. I didn't feel KOTOR 2 ended at a bad point. Just that I had this nagging feeling there was another level or two I should have been to first. Halo 2 felt like watching a tv program where they didn't show the last part after the commercial break. Nothing was really resolved. Not saying i didn't have a blast though. I just felt with Halo 2 they tried to be clever and fell flat, because basically they didn't know how to leave it. I never felt that with KOTOR2 I think it shone throughout the game where they wanted to take it. which is why so many of us got a feeling something was missing.
  10. Will somebody please stick spoiler tags on that post. I keep having to fastforward through it before i read too much. I think ti might be too late
  11. Call of Cthulhu Just imagine the weird hallucinations and stuff that you could throw at players as they gradually go insane, and the bizzare turns conversations between NPCs and the main player as each gradually sinks deeper into enlightened dementia.
  12. LOL (w00t) ok smart ass OK what I saw was the energy emmitted by the electron hitting the end of the cathode ray tube. and I know it was a single electron initially cos we had a cathode ray oscilloscope to show the firing of each. But to be honest it was like 15 years ago. Mostly what I remember is thinking. Cool.
  13. i believe you are referring to photons... the particle/wave theory of light is well documented. electrons are particles, and their apparent ability to exist in more than one place is not due to wave nature. it is due more to statistical probabilities, akin to schroedinger's cat. taks <{POST_SNAPBACK}> you're probably right. I definitely saw a single electron appear in two places. Maybe that was what it was. *looks manic* but I did see it.. I DIIIID
  14. Hmmmm. honestly. I'd wait for the film if I was you, cos in the end Star Wars is about the films, everything else is secondary. Must be difficult though. I feel your pain in a way, I bought World of Warcraft a month ago and its sat on my shelf in the wrapper cos I am not opening it till I have all my coursework out of the way. That's been an effort of will, i can tell you.
  15. ... We haven't even got to one party accusing the other of being Nazis yet. We still have a long way to go ... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> On that note.... some of you may enjoy this not for the easily offended. then again if you read this far through the thread you can't be How to win any argument over the internet "
  16. Seppuku, I believe. Shiitake means meshroom in Japanese, so Shiitake mushroom is redundant. Silver has the highest conductivity of all metals. Pure gold is so soft, it can be molded with your bare hands. Nitron is C20H16N4, but that is not the source of my name, merely a coincidence. Other names for Nitron are: 4-Diphenyl-endoanilino-dihydrotriazole; 1,4-diphenyl-3-anilino-1H-1,2,4-triazolium hydroxide; 3,5,6-triphenyl-2,3,5,6-tetraazabicyclo(2.1.1)hex-1-ene. Sweet. :D <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Sushi is rice. Sashami is raw fish (maybe everyone knows tht i dunno, but I didn't till i ate at a sushi restaurant last year)
  17. :ph34r: You don't want to eat me, eat my brother, he's much fatter
  18. Or a free version of the patch. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Yes I thought $7 for the patch was a bit cheeky. " :ph34r:
  19. To be continued by the way. Just finishing my dissertation
  20. Glad I'm not the only one completely nonplussed
  21. Oh no. i can see it now..... STAR WARS EPISODE III The Revenge Of The Sith It is a dark time for the Republic ,projected Government profits for the fiscal year have proven to have been markedly overstated. As a result income tax will increase by 1.5% per head and the C3PO won't be able to afford a new golden shin for his right leg. It was pawned by ANAKIN SKYWALKER to pay for repairs to his bedroom after a tantrum he had last week over how nothing ever went his way. OBI WAN KENOBI, Jedi Master, and Anakins mentor, has been unable to afford a decent haircut in weeks; and has taken to sporting a natty beard in the hope of scrounging some credits while busking on the Coruscant Underground Meanwhile, MACE WINDU has embarked on a personal quest to seek the truth behind SENATOR PALPATINES increased dutytax on the Big Banthapoodoo Burger. Unbeknownst to the JEDI, Senator Palpatine has been creaming the profits to buy himself a pimped up Personal Skiff with Bantha leather seats and wookie fur steering wheel, and bearing the window sticker, 'Honk if you like it Darksyde'. The Saga continues as YODA arrives on Tattooine accompanied by JAR JAR BINKS, intent on pimping the Gungan out to JABBA THE HUT Oh yeah, and theres some war going on.
  22. Well that bodes well. Don't remember any taxmen in Clone Wars
  23. That's odd. in my last game I chose Sith Assassin and still appeared in the opening screen
