Valve just rocks with their consumer support. I mean, free quality stuff and dev tools? Wicked.

Yep. I'd caution about Steam, though. Steam is used to unlock all the files before you can play the game for the first time: so it is a mandatory pre-requisite that you have an internet connection on your games machine. And the installation process takes a couple of hours (even if you buy it on DVD).

 

Apart from that, it's cool.

I consider Steam a Good Thing, from my game-buying point of view, because it offers a method for cutting out several middle men who I have absolutely no desire to see personally benefit from my gaming dollar. The more that goes to the devs, the better.

Dr. Kleiner is by far my favorite character. He doesn't have that many lines (well...no one really does, truth be told), but from what is said, he has a lot of personality.

Here's a little comic tribute I made for him

Yep, I tend to agree. I just thought I'd mention it because it did take a lot of people by surprise: a lot of people have their games machine isolated from the internet. And it is mindly annoying that it takes about an hour to decrypt every single file after installation. Once it is installed and decrypted you can run it in offline mode, though.

Girls don't play Counter-Strike. No they don't.

They do. And they are probably the ones fragging your arse, too. :rolleyes:

This is a popular myth. Everyone wants "girls who can frag your ass" to exist, but in reality they don't. Unless you're actually considering those 0.001% to be a vital part of the demographics..

I don't. If it actually reduced the price of the final product, it would be ok. But it doesn't. The devs are just cutting the publisher and the rest of middle men from the loop, only to get a larger piece of the cake for themselves. Nothing wrong with that, of course, after all it's a capitalist system we're working with. But if it causes me any sort of annoyance that the standard form of retail, for the same price, as a good capitalist customer I'm just not going to support it. :shifty:

I love your use of quantified statistics. Gives me hope for the human race. Do you know that females have a smaller brain (volumetric capacity and by weight)? Thus we can extrapolate that they are less intelligent, too.

Is the size of the brain the size of the mind? ...Of course, women are not intellectually inferior to men, but there might be other reasons women don't frag as well as men. One reason might be they don't enjoy and therefore don't play the damned games. If I could just get my wife to play computer games with me, my life would be complete.

Discussion about brain size in a HL 2-topic?

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

 

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds

As brains function according to the endocrine soup created by the millions of chemicals secreted in the brain tissues (the brain is basically hollow) and by the glandular system, it is quite feasible that we think with our whole body. (Certainly the spine is an extension of brain, where reflexes from, say, the knee tap -- made famous in all those bugs bunny cartoons -- is controlled, for increased speed presumably, from the base of the spine and not the depths of the skull.)

 

This still leaves the average woman with a lower body mass, so they are still arguably less intelligent by that -- obviously false -- measure. And this totally ignores the metaphorical metaphysical aspects of the mind ...

 

(Remember that there are female fighter pilots.)

It reminds me of a joke I heard once: if the size of the brain were the size of the mind, the bear would be shooting at my behind.

 

Anyhow, whatever the size of his brain, Grigori is one twisted fellow.

Father Grigori is the best example of a Preist I have seen! He cares for his flock "I remember your true face!" and dispatches them to whatever afterlife they are bound for ...

 

 

Such a shame that Dave Allen died this year. he would have approved of Father Grigori!

And why does everyone keep calling you "Friedman" ?

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.
