  2. Very awesome: The Galactica hooks up with the Pegasus tonight, and it looks like Nana Visitor is the admiral. From what I read of the BG blog, the Pegasus will not, unfortunately, be a permanent fixture for the show.
  3. Nicholas Cage is always a good bet as far as I'm concerned. I enjoyed it. 7.5/10
  4. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: After reading this and this, I'm going to be building a mythTV box this weekend. I've had it with the constant shape shifting that Tivo is doing. Oooohhh, hombrew PVR. Look forward to hearing about the specs! I put one together using a case from Shuttle and an ATI All-in-Wonder a few years ago. Very sweet, worked like a charm, except I could never get picture-in-picture working. Good luck Derek!
  5. This was truly pathetic. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't seen it, but for god's sake...can we not just once get away from such a cliche type of alien invasion?!? Let's get some serious explosions and stuff going on, ala Spielberg's War of the Worlds. I didn't like Threshold because I thought its premise was too pedestrian, but this show makes Threshold look like Clarke's 2001! Fortunately, LOST did not disappoint. And we still have the Stargates + Battlestar Galactica. Long live Sci-Fi channel!
  6. Well, looks like some enterprising gentleman has gotten FreeDOS and Win95 running on a PSP. This is a good reason to buy a bigger memory stick
  7. quote:Originally posted by almostpilot: quote:Originally posted by jamotto: Space Empires: Starfury this game deserves more close attention. It┬┤s a small, simple and good game. Very interesting...in my opinion and suggest It has limited appeal. Once you've bought a cruiser and kitted it out, you have to really work to get yourself killed.
  8. quote:Originally posted by Spindoktor: pkware/pkzip? Awww, memories of those DOS command line days. No disrespect intended. They are the fathers of the genre. They are still making software today, just without Phil Katz. Their software is more focused on businesses, but PKZIP for Windows and SecureZIP for Windows kick ass when it comes to security options.
  9. quote:By burning wick, on candle black Four-axis stick and talk of smack By dorkish heart and powers be Derek Smart, I summon thee! *crack of thunder* HAHAHAH! This made me laugh. I'm so glad to see this thread has grown so large, and full of such great posts. I wish I could edit the front page to include all the latest games listed here!
  10. I am apalled that none of you have mentioned PKWARE and PKZIP/SecureZIP. I'm not bringing this up just because I'm their PR guy, either
  11. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: Those crazy folks at PSP Hacks have found a way around the latest 1.50 firmware so that you can run whatever you like on your PSP. You can gank it over here. OMG there's an echo in here!
  12. Well, a workaround has been found allowing people to run homebrew software on BIOS version 1.5 PSPs. All rejoice Unfortunately, it *IS* a bit convoluted. Won't link to it here, since any link inevitably carries links to emulators and such.
  13. Well, I bought it. Love it. Untold Legends is so pathetically formulaic as to be amusing. I am, however, dispapointed that I cannot run homebrew apps. No, not emulators --- someone created PSP Chess and I wanted to give it a go. No dice. Sigh. Back to my Pocket PC...!
  14. Cellblock Squadrons This one looks GOOD. Here's a quote from the site: Delve into a future world where every criminal has a debt to society, and the darkness of space is where it's to be repayed. Join in missions with up to 99 other criminals and earn your freedom, so that one day, you can finally go home. Choose from five small craft and experience reflex busting gameplay, randomized weapon placements and some time in solitary confinement, as you fight against more than forty enemy battleships, bent on your entire squad's destruction. You're not going to save the universe... this time, you're only going to save yourself.
  15. All, Found a new one. Still in development and no demo available. And, unfortunately, according to A Talent for War the developer has cancelled it for the time being --- he has run out of money, among other reasons. Regardless, it has a gorgeous visual style and certainly looked promising. Maybe some of you filthy rich forumers can finance it Eschaton: Chain of Command
  16. I hereby declare Jamotto to be 0wn3r of this thread
  17. I have two things to say. First, that article was so poorly written I was literally marking up my screen with a red pen. Second, why in the hell did he get the order of the british empire? I mean, yeah, he's a pretty talented/imaginative guy, and he makes great games, but...I mean...I'm just flabbergasted. The OBE must be handed out to ANYONE that shows some glimmer of creativity or orginality.
  18. So, a bit late, but...got a chance to play this recently. Very, very unimpressed --- took it back to EB, demanded my money back. I read all the reviews, so I should not have been surprised to find that I was purchasing an RTS. I did not WANT an RTS --- I wanted what I saw in those screenshots in the months before its release --- a Middle Earth: Total War type of affair. But no...it's just the C&C: Generals engine with middle earth graphics, large unit count and pretty effects. It's pace is slow beyond belief --- and you can feel that it was done ON PURPOSE, else general RTS style play would have rendered it unplayable. The base building aspect is neat, but as Scriv mentioned, Kohan did it --- and did it better. I'm going back to Rome
  19. ::you hear the sound of crickets chirping::
  20. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: Ubisoft may recive govt backing in defence against Electronic Arts - report Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot speaks his mind on the EA deal What EA is doing is just frightening. Race has a point, although ten years is a big generous. EA is just 0wning the industry left, right, and center. Innovation is sure to be stifled for commercial games --- all we'll see are retreads of previously successful series and more sports games (commence vomit). The only interesting games will be released by small developers, online, for download. They will have subpar graphics and sound, but will be fun as all hell. I endorse this. Make games fun again!
  21. quote:Originally posted by Carl Burning: I thought we had the new Morrowind and Civilization 4 to look foward to? I hope so anyway- I dont want to wait until 2006 for those two games. The article linked above was by no means thorough. I don't think they were aiming for that. I think they were just mentioning all the "big stuff" that was going to happen. The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion won't be mainstream big, and Civ 4...I sincerely doubt it'll be a mainstream success. Heck, it just sounds like yet another incremental refinement in the series.
  22. Hm. So, basically, besides Quake IV, the only things PC gamers can look forward to in 2005 look to be UT2004 and Half-Life 2 mods To clarify: 2004 may have been a fairly "fun" year for gaming (Rome:TW, Dawn of War, HL2, etc. etc.) but I think next year will be either the attack of the clones (games using existing engines, which will probably end up being forgettable) or imaginative, free, mods, based on existing engines.
  23. Hey, this has turned out to be a damn good thread. Good quality posts. Remember to post 'em when you find 'em, folks!
  24. quote:Originally posted by Soback: Nah, this game is waaaayyyyy too linear. Once you go through the campaign you have a $50 coaster. No replayability at all.Soback, there is mod support in the back --- IIRC, the tools are included with the game. Provided the game does well enough and gets the right sort of audience, some nice mods might be in our future. Anyway, an entertaining diversion, regardless. The Colossus' shield is quite cool, though I must say the Gorg's Siege Laser/Formation is equally neat. Bleh.
  25. The game is quite fun. My one sticking point has to be the fact that you can't actually manually navigate your ships...I mean, you can't tell them to go to a point in empty space (not that I'd found), they have to have a target to approach/attack/whatever. Actually a fairly minor sticking point.
