  1. Speaking of NWN2 forums, the link on these forums to the MOTB forums at Bioware takes you to the Storm of Zehir forums.
  2. Couldn't that also have something to do with the fact that these games were made with consoles in mind and the fact that your average PC in a Wal-Mart, Best Buy or other store where the majority of consumers get their computers can't run these games due to their high system requirements. It is much cheaper to get the console and the game than to get a PC capable of running the game.
  3. Had the same problem with KOTOR. Set compatability mode to Windows 2000/XP and it went away. I had to do it each time after I put the computer into sleep/shut down/restart though.
  4. I bought Lord of the Rings Online a couple days ago. I really don't care for MMOs and I dont see myself continuously playing this, but I have found it to be more enjoyable than the other MMO's I have played. (EQ, UO, SWG) Sam and Max Episodes Day of Defeat: Source
  5. 14 of the 28 are "features" and I quote "1.0c1 - All non-Feature severity issues resolved. (Public release)" So only 14 till release As I understand it, the bug count is not an accurate way to count down to release, as they have more work to do than to just squish bugs. They still have some content to restore, translations to do, and with those there will likely be more bugs. From what I read on the Gizka forums it seems almost positive that there still months, not weeks, to release, and that it is not out of the question for the mod to be released in 2008 and not in 2007. So don't take the bug counter as a sign of being close to release. That counter will likely have many more upward and downward fluctuations as the weeks go on. I would not start getting excited yet, at least until we hear that all content has been implemented. http://forums.team-gizka.org/viewtopic.php?t=2383 - a list of things that have, have yet to be, and won't be restored.
  6. Is there anyone still playing this? People are trying to convince me to get this and I am very hesitant about it. I find that MMO's stop being any fun after so long. How does this hold up to playing over the months?
  7. Accuweather says 120 on Independence Day. NWS says 119. It keeps getting better. Guess it is payback for that cold late December/Jan we had. I want the monsoon storms to start damnit.
  8. Has not rained here in nearly 3 months. That's normal though. That should change sometime in the next month. Next 2 Weeks
  9. I don't like any of the 6 for which options were given. If I had to pick from those I would choose Rudy. I will not, under any circumstances, vote for Hillary or McCain. Especially McCain. If I met McCain on the street, I would have to stop myself from slugging him. As a former McCain supporter and an Arizona resident, I feel betrayed by him. He is not a "maverick" and he is not "moderate" (at least in the sense of the mainstream spectrum). He is a power-hungry old man who sees this election as his last shot. He is willing to pander to the right for the presidency. He agrees with almost everything the president says now. He supports the surge in Iraq, and voted to allow torture of detainees. (Keep in mind that he was tortured in Vietnam and has said in the past that torture should be outlawed). He has flipped on Roe v. Wade. He used to say that while he disagrees with it, banning abortion would lead to self-operations and hidden, unsafe clinics. He said in 2000 that "Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan and Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right." Now Falwell is his friend. The good thing is that in their ignorance many evangelicals still think he is a maverick. My favorite candidates, both announced and potential, though I think they have about as much of a chance as an ice cube in Phoenix, are Ron Paul, Chuck Hagel, Wes Clark, and a little further down the list Bill Richardson.
  10. Awesome. My favorite online game with my favorite offline game. My favorite official map too.
  11. Today, it is about 114. It was 120 a few days ago. I am on the west side of the Phoenix, Arizona area.
  12. Bloodlines Indigo Prophecy (2nd time) Beyond Good and Evil KOTOR 1 (3rd time) Planescape: Torment (Trying to finally finish it. Set it down a few months back and am picking it back up.) Kingdom Hearts (3rd time) Day of Defeat: Source I play too many games at once. I am getting nowhere in any of them. I have a keycard bug and crash in the Slaughterhouse in BG&E. I was enjoying the game too.
  13. I got sick of it quick. The story/characters sucked and the combat was absolutely horrid.
  14. Obsidian Entertainment - I'm an obedient transient.
  15. Yep. I am sure that EA is waiting.
  16. Here is an e-mail I recieved the other day:
  17. You return. Last time I saw you I was being killed by you in DoD:Source. Come back to the Sanctuary. I'd like to pay you back.
  18. No, Georgie Boy is not. Stevie Boy is. It is amazing how far Spielburg has fallen. Also, I have heard a lot of complaints about the guy hired to write the script. Apparently he is the genius behind Rush Hour 2 and Speed 2.
  19. I'd say that if the Infernal Machine was not crap and the Emperor's Tomb strictly average, though still underrated.
  20. The clock beside my bed automatically switches. So I wake up early and have to switch it back. Why is there no "Arizona" option?
  21. Commissar- I, as a former CIA official who has has access to a few classified files on some of our developing technology, can tell you that we have had access to alien technology since 1930, when a spacecraft landed in Mexico. Fortunatly, it crashed in a very remote area only 2 miles south of the border of Arizona. The Mexican government, partially due to the location of the crash, and the fact that a power struggle was occuring between the PNM and the PRI, never knew about it. Research on the craft took place in many different locations, from Davis-Monthon AFB in Arizona to Randolph AFB in Texas, which were built or upgraded because of this project, to D.C. The least of what we learned from the spacecraft are nuclear energy and stealth technology. We have developed various laser and ion technologies from this craft, as well as others that we have found or brought down based on the information and technology taken from the original spacecraft. Now excuse me while I look outside my window for suspicious vans or people while I plot my escape to Mongolia. I should be safe there. Edit: Nazis did not help us build nukes. Not sure of the Kennedy thing though.
  22. Charlie Murphy - hmm....cool name. Reminds me of a person I used to play DoD with. Anyways, I enjoyed II more than the first. The endgame fell off of a cliff, but I enjoyed the dialogue and characters more than in the first. I also enjoyed the story more up until the last few hours. It is just as easy, if not easier than as first, which is dissapointing, but the some of the new mechanics are fun, even though the difficulty kept them from being very useful. The upgrade system is much better and skills are way more useful this time around. I just wish the game was more difficult and the ending was not cut in LA's rush to get the game out for the holidays.
  23. You're right. I still enjoy playing my BG2 character in NWN. It made the game feel much more epic. <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
