    An essay on WoW from the bigges WoW fanboy here

    This isn't what you think it is. I am not going to tell you why WoW is so great. Instead, I am going to tell you why such a great game is hated by so many people, including myself recently. Now, I am an intelligent, eloquent person who can express myself in writing better than most. Most...

    Just bought a wheel and pedal set... best games?

    So I got a $100 gift card for christmas to CC and ended up getting the momo wheel for PC. I love it so far, but only have a few games to use with it. I have LFS, TOCA 3, Flatout 2, and Trackmania United. Of those I think TOCA 3 makes the best use of the wheel by far, the force feedback feels...

    Vista is Excellent

    Just bought a new laptop, has vista on it, my first experience with it. After tweaking it the way I want it the only difference I see between it and the XP Pro running on my gaming rig is that it has much better memory management. Recently used programs are obviously being cached in ram because...

    can anyone tell me where to find a description of the database file format used by MySQL, I looked on their site and the link I found to the documentation didn't work. I need to be able to load up a database file in my own program and manipulate it.

    Resetting an ifstreams error flags

    Okay, so I loop through a file like this: while(file->good()) {...} good() returns true if none of the ifstreams error flags are set. Now, assume that that loop is inside a larger loop so that I am reading the entire file multiple times in succession. First I would obviously have to set the...

    Halo 1 vs UT99

    Which was the better FPS? I vote UT99, Halo was really repetitive and boring, UT I could play online for hours and hours on end... and still can.

    Zelda: Twilight Princess

    As many already may know, this game is amazing. Last night I did the entire "Arbiter's Grounds" dungeon and got into the real story line. Up until last night I thought the game was good, but a bit shy of all the hype. After you finish the first three "intro" dungeons the game really starts to...

    PS3 camping update

    My girlfriend just got back from our local walmart (she picked up children of mana DS for me) and she told me that she talked to a manager there about the PS3. She said that she flirted with him a little and got him to say more than he was going to at first, but basically here are the things you...

    Camping for the PS3

    I just finished reading a certain thread where someone discussed camping for over 2 days to get a PS3. I am planning on doing this but I think 2 days is a little bit ridiculous. I mean, you are going to be sitting there in a non-existant line while the store is open and people are coming and...

    Flatout 2 is flatout amazing!

    This game has to be one of the best arcade racers ever made. I loved the first one but this game is so much better. Music, sound effects, graphics, gameplay... all 10/10. I can't think of anything they could have done to make it better. GO BUY IT! :cool: Here is a link to a bunch of videos...

    Outrun 2006... sucks balls

    I know this has been out for a while but I thought I'd check it out so I got it today for cheap. It's pretty much terrible. It's kind of like dating a hot blonde with an IQ of 12, a lot of fun to look at but don't try doing anything with it. The handling is so terrible its basically crippling to...

    PSP vs DS

    Lets put this to rest once and for all. No arguing, just vote and say why you voted that way. I voted for the DS. I have played both and I think the DS is the best bang for the buck. I think it has a better selection of games and the other features of the PSP don't interest me much (most of...

    You guys have to play this game!

    This is one of the most fun games I've played in a long time. It is a remake of invaders but don't let that throw you off, it isn't a simple or easy game. There is really cool ship upgrade system, boss ships, tons of different enemies, really cool techno style music (if you've got a sub you'll...

    Comment on my Mario 3 clone code

    I have been working on this for a while now, and knowing I am not exactly the most efficient programmer in the world I was wondering if I could get some general comments on the way I am doing this before I get in so deep it becomes unfeasable to change it... It's a lot already. This is the...
