    S.T.A.L.K.E.R : Lost Alpha news

    I am skeptical that it was "leaked" by anyone outside of the dev team. This thing was never likely to see the light of day as anofficial release given the whole GSC/Stalker licensing debacle, so this is simply a good excuse.

    That's not even the issue. The issue is that a persistent internet connection is REQUIRED to play even the offline, single-player game. I've avoided FC3 because of uplay and will continue to do so for this reason.

    Intel Makes It Easier To Remotely Troubleshoot Multiple Datacenter Devices

    You'd have iLO for that 580, so it's not much good for anything. If you had to have a centralized management console and didn't have anything better, I'd imagine this is fine. I'm sure once people start using the SDK it'll gain viability. Hard for me to justify ~$100 per system extra where I...

    Intel Makes It Easier To Remotely Troubleshoot Multiple Datacenter Devices

    APC has been offering this for a while based on Intel's system as a component of Data Center Operation. It's a ridiculous per-system cost, and since most modern systems have some sort of management interface not very useful, imo

    Any LTC miners out there willing to answer some questions?

    You hopefully got or found out the answer to this, but GPUs are massively more capable than CPUs for mining litecoin.

    California May Issue Digital License Plates

    I'm sorry but you would more than likely lack the ability and/or means to made said modifications. You would also more than likely be fined or jailed for tampering with the device. Sorry.

    A new stalker ?

    A new stalker ?

    You've clearly never played AMK or People Soup. AMK is like Oblivion Lost with more content. People Soup is unfiltered Ukrainian/Russian insanity. SGM for Call of Pripyat is similarly insane and brutal. One of the reasons S.T.A.L.K.E.R. didn't have a bevy of mods was because the structure of...

    A mouse that's resistant towards the entropic decay that occurs with Logitech?

    More anecdotal experience here, but these Man-Machine mice do not hold up to much abuse, at least not in the hospital environment I've seen them used in. The coating tears fairly easily and they don't survive drops well.

    What kind of a gamer are you?

    I play pretty much anything, though as of late it's been a lot of platformers and some FPS stuff. Currently working through my backlog of games with Metro 2033. I will say that I will sometimes intentionally install and play through a game I know to be flawed, buggy or just plain bad and enjoy...

    Popular Games you left unfinished and why

    I get this was with most racing games. After a point, you're rehashing the same thing unless there is just tons of content (or ridiculousness in arcade racers).

    Humble Indie Bundle 8

    Steam Daily Deal: XCOM Enemy Unknown for $13.49

    I enjoy and still play all of the games you mentioned, and I found Enemy Unknown to be a worthy successor. It's not the same type of experience, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing at all.

    Happy birthday to QUAKE

    This was very true for me as well. I was looking Quake shit up and found Zanshin's dojo. Grabbed the GLQuake executable and watched it destroy my Matrox Millenium at .5 FPS. After a couple of frames I was sold. I sped to the local computer store and bought my first 3DFX card. The one hardware...

    Grabbed this at my local (Baton Rouge, LA) Target yesterday. They had 5 copies left, the shelf was marked $69.95, but I paid $39.95 like everyone else. I'm wondering if/when Target will mark this game up ten bucks.

    Anyone tried X2 and X3?

    I bought both of these games and was definitely put off by the learning curve on X3. That said, I liked the open-ended nature of the game and the graphics were pretty good in space. X2 had some laughable "fashion" for the NPCs. Any tips for a noob as to control configs or a good starter ship in...

    STALKER base or Oblivion Lost?

    My vote is for OL also. You do run into some tougher creatures in the beginning of the game, but nothing insane and you can avoid a lot if you're careful. I'm having more fun with OL than I ever did in the vanilla game.

    Bought a house in Oblivion. Now what?

    No, you need the Oblivion editor that allows you to modify content on the PC version. There are some mods that are modified to work with the 360, but I don't know where you might get those or if any of them will let you assemble a house.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. + Oblivion Lost mod = pwnage!!!

    I finally got around installing this last night. So far I'm enjoying it more than the standard game even tough I'm not far into it yet. It's definitely a graphical improvement over vanilla.

    Combat Arms

    There is no problem, I'm enjoying the game. I would like to amass a collection of all the weapons without spending a trillion points, but it's really not a concern, and I understand why the system is set up the way it is. I haven't found a rifle I really prefer over another, I think I'm gonna...

    Combat Arms

    I consider that nickel and diming using the points system vs. real money. It's a minor inconvenience, as you can steal dead people's guns in-game and don't really need to buy anything to be competitive.
