Homeworld series was the best, IMO.
100% true all 3D play, along with the fact that every single unit lost in battle stung because you always started a mission with the same ships you had at the finish of the previous mission.
I've been trying to get this fucking game started for that last half hour.
I've about had it.
Sometimes the updater stays up and ends up locking up. Sometimes I get as far as the demonic face in the middle of my desktop, and then it locks up. Sometimes, nothing happens when I click on the...
1st post in over 3 goddamn years, because of a game that I'm lucky to actually start up 65-70% of the time.
If I shell out 60 dollars for a game I should be able to easily launch the damn thing 100% of the time, no matter what. And... I should be able to do it without doing this, this, and...
Yeah, some of those debunks are kind of a stretch.
A couple in particular:
1. An assumption is made that the sole reason that a game does not run correctly is due to insufficient system requirements.
2. 2 points here: 1st, there has been times where the 'artists' may have been pressured...
I've been putting my own systems together for about 13 years now and the 690 is easily my favorite case.
Not too tall, but still lots of room. Awesome airflow. Nice cable management features.
My only knock, and it's a small one, is that 'front' USB, SATA, and firewire ports aren't really...
I spent about an hour this morning playing around with the adjustments on mine and no matter what I did, I could never get it to look as good as when I 1st plugged it in and turned it on. So, I set everything back to factory default.
Until I put my new PC together, mine is being powered by a Radeon 9700 pro and a 2.4 P4. No black borders. I'm using the entire screen.
My desktop is at the native res, and Guild Wars works great. Counterstrike is running in full screen, but at a non-native lowere res.
Can't comment about...
I took a ride to the TigerDirect warehouse and picked one of these up Saturday afternoon. I wanted to put it off until I was ready for my next pc build, but I couldn't wait. My Optiquest V95 crapped out on me finally after 11 years. My current pc is quite old, so there is no way in hell I can...
A lot of the ones I'd like to see have been mentioned repeatedly already.
However, one that hasn't is a sequel to what I think is one of the most underrated and underappreciated pc games ever:
I understand that the total height for this case is about 18 inches. It seems that the height tapers down a bit towards the front of the case.
Can anybody tell me what that height is, right at the front of the case?
At the time it was released, it was the graphics benchmark for PC games.
It is also one of my favorites. I think a good description would be a fantasy version of the PC remake of Battlezone.
Dungeon Keeper 2 is one of my all-time favorites. I never laughed at a game harder then when one of my trolls hit the jackpot in the casino and I saw all the guys in there line dancing while Disco Inferno was jamming.
pc gaming needs a new kick-ass space combat sim so bad, it's disgusting.
RTS's and FPs's are way overdone. New ones are just prettier versions of older ones.
My biggest wish is for a new Star Wars space combat sim set during the clone wars, but with the game play that made Tie fighter one...
Based on purchase price, feature set at time of release, and longetivity, my choice is the 9700 pro.
I paid $290.00 for it back in January of '03 and it is still in my primary machine. I am finally thinking of an upgrade in the next month. No other card I have owned has given me more bang for...
Sacrifice was an outstanding game and it is ashame it doesn't get as much credit as it deserves. I think it gets looked over because it's more of a hybrid, like battlezone was. It's more than just an RTS.
My favorites are the Homeworld games. The gameplay and graphics are awesome and I like...
I like how some of ya'll talk about needing an upgrade.
2.4 Ghz P4 + Radeon 9700 pro.
How's that for a leet system?!!!!
Put the system together over 3 years ago. Got more than my money's worth out of it.
I picked up the Neverwinter Nights Platinum Edition at Best Buy a couple of weeks ago for $40.00.
It includes the original campaign, both expansion packs (Shadows of Undrentide, Hordes of the Underdark), and about a half dozen or so mini modules.
It's an older game, but I'm having a lot of...
Once in a while, I'll fire up HW2 and scrimmage against the CPU with the Starwars: Warlords mod. The mod continues to be polished up and works pretty good now. A whole bunch of ships from the movies and from everything else Star wars.
