Re: do you belive in global wariming?

Even if it does exist, nothing beyond half-*ssed efforts will be done about it. It's not profitable to solve global warming. Don't forget deforestation, death of sea life, etc. We're f-ing up the CO2<->O2 cycle big time within the last century. Not all of the excess CO2 is directly created by us, it...

Re: starcraft progaming - korean commentary subtitled!

While we're at it, why not connect to the Warzone community? One day, spring might support similar features. I hope. I hear Warzone actually won more awards than TA. You know there is a Warzone 2200 project , as well as an open source revival project . I think Warzone had even more potential than TA...

Re: Battlefield Heroes

EA funded a non-profit project? Perhaps they just slapped their logo on a near finished project from one of the studios they've assimilated over the years but couldn't quite obtain the rights to sell the studio's previous works. BF1942 kicks a** (With the appropriate mods/fixes. Hated the original w...

Re: The five book trilogy

Best series ever. Ever. "This was because Reason was in fact out to lunch." "The story so far: In the beginning the Universe was created.

Re: Metroid

Just realized... there wasn't a Metroid on N64 was there? Super Metroid was indeed kick*ss. Prime was the best of the 3D. Echos... can't beat the spiderball boss. The one on the Wii is alright, but the fetch quests almost ruined it. Boost guardian took me forever to kill. Walked away and came back t...

Re: Descent 4

Bioshock could have been kicka** if they just patched up the original formula, rather than stripping it down. Some SS2 fans got together to remake SS2 in the Doom 3 engine, but EA shut it down quite awhile ago... Back on the subject of Space Sim remakes: I would love to see a redo of HardWar. Great ...

Re: Descent 4

I believe EA is making System Shock 3 as well. I'm not even going to try the demo, I already know it will suck. Too bad they F-ed up Bioshock. Some people from the original SS2 team worked on it, but it turned into the usual streamlined garbage. because more people will NOTICE the game I hate people...

Re: DWARF FORTRESS

New version: 0.27. 173 .38a->0.27. 176 .38a Lots of bug fixes & tweaks. DF would be kick*ss in real 3D, but that won't happen until it's impossible to represent the game mechanics in a 2d display. Even 2.5D 'Doom' graphics would be great, but even that would require a large team of programmers. It's...

Re: PC hardware discussion V1,000,000,000.6

All of the Phenoms will be out by 2nd Quarter this year...
If you have no faith in AMD, then the Q6600 is a good deal.
As for a GPU, a 9000 series Nvidea is coming out. I believe its a dual G92 or something.

Re: DWARF FORTRESS

I checked the oficial site and the version I got is the newest, 27_169_33a
Newest? From the official site? v0.27.169.33g is the latest. Where were you looking?
This is the official site. 33a was up there way back in November.
Here's the wiki as well, rather handy.

Re: Putting movies on other media

even the DVD movie encoding format B.S., it's all just B.S.; I should have guessed the encoding counts as 'protection'. What if I just use a screen recorder? I'd be using the legal DVD decoder, and the quality wouldn't matter much since it's being shrunk down for such a tiny screen. Too bad I don't...

Re: Putting movies on other media

the catch is that it's illegal to bypass the protection in order to do so
What kind of protection do they put on the DVDs? Just encryption?
So then if it doesn't have that protection, I can rip it to any media I want provided I don't distribute?
