  2. Nah, never a good idea to kill one of your enemies leaders. Makes them a martyr every time. The best solution is to capture him (or her) throw him in a cell, and leave him there for 15 years... by that point people have forgotten about him, and thats when you execute him. Brutal, but it works.
  3. Haha, great image. Really is quite insane though. Unbelivably high quality graphics.
  4. quote:Originally posted by Kalshion: Military does strange things They just CANCELED her deployment so now she's back on leave and will be coming down in two weeks I'm a very happy commander now Her CO probably made enough complaints that his(her) troops wouldn't be ready. Leave is a little more important when you've been overseas for a while; 4 years is a looonnnnggg time. Honestly, I'd be skeptical about sending troops who've been overseas for 4 years straight back into action so swiftly. I'm sure the commanders were as well. Good news Kal.
  5. quote:Originally posted by $iLk: The sad thing is having to live with taking another life... he tried very hard to avoid it from what I've read. Yeah, and even with all the training Marines get to help them deal and cope with taking a life, it doesn't ever prepare them for killing a 17 year old girl in self defense. They always expect to be killing the enemy. The enemy that is hammered into their brain before they go to action. Tasteless jokes aside, it really is sad, but I think in the end its going to send a chilling realization to some criminals, especially those who survived this incident. @Kalshion - I don't think they knew he was a marine. Most likely he was in civvies.
  6. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: He should've killed ALL of them. Too bad he didn't pick up the shotgun powerup. He's probably not a Doom player. HAHAHA! Yeah, but getting knifed is so much more humiliating.

  8. Is there any way I can be recommissioned? I'd like to rejoin the fleet if possible.
  9. Terrible, terrible news. You're in my prayers man.
  10. Damn, sucks for them. I hope they get charged with every one of their crimes.
  11. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: Physx uses the Novadex (which Aegia owns) physics sdk which is free to developers. Havoc is third-party licensed physics sdk which costs tons. Ahh, that makes sense. Does it work without the Physx card? I can't see why people would continue to use Havok if a solution thats on par with in addition to being free.
  12. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: We're still waiting to see if ATI's solution is general purpose and not require and additional layer, as in the case of nVidia + Havoc combo. Yeah, but doesn't the PhysX require an additional layer in the application as well? My understanding is that games have to be PhysX compatible for you to get any improvement.
  13. I've got family up that way (hence why I asked if you were actually moving up to VA) but I don't live there. Nice state but I don't think I could live there... needs to be a little farther north after living in GA for so long. Enjoy your stay there, its a nice area.
  14. Good luck Jag. Are you actually moving to VA or is it just for the training?
  15. A little late to the party, but congrats Ben! Everyone seems to be having children these days... either that or I'm just getting to that age.
  16. quote:Originally posted by Wolferz: LMAO Bethsoft has released their beta patch for the PC version of Oblivion and they foolishly chose to have people report any anomalies in the forums. Now they have a hodgepodge of whining posts that tell the devs nothing. I pity the poor bastages. They've had that since the release. People have been going to those forums and just *****ing for a while now. Its disgusting, I don't see how they put up with it. What's so wrong with banning somone who does nothing but whine and complain about your product? Its your private domain, you can do what you want.
  17. If the ESRB had their way all video games would probably be banned. This is just stupid. Just completely stupid.
  18. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: He's right though. I have the Vista CTP and its a mess. Vista is to WinXP what WinME was to Win98: a disaster. Yeah, its so true. I've been having to play with it at work lately, and I'm not impressed at all. However, it is still a pre-release; it still feels a little early to judge it. Plus I don't know if I'm exactly the one who should be judging it... I'm still convinced that a good UNIX is lightyears better than Vista, for both Workstation and Server applications. Concerning backwards compatibility, and I know I'm going to get booed for this, but I think Microsoft should learn a good lesson from Apple. Rather than worry so much about backwards compatibility, just rewrite the entire code, not worrying about backwards compatibility. They keep talking about doing "rewrites" yet the same old problems remain. Apple released OS X and told the OS classic guys to piss off. They gave you tools to basically have a copy of OS classic installed if you really needed legacy apps but with each version of OS X they've just sort of pulled people away from that. Heck, a lot of UNIX stuff is like that. I know of a few Solaris apps that won't run on 9 but will run on 6 just fine. Microsoft needs to stop worrying about "loosing customers" or "being the bad guys" and just say piss off to the people who whine. Even gamers get over it... its not like we haven't gone through it before with Windows 98 to Windows XP.
  19. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: I never have - and never will - shop at Walmart. If I need something that they have, I go to Target instead. Before I moved to where I am now, I lived by the same policy. Unfortunately, in the smaller town I'm currently residing in, Walmart is all we have for a lot of items. Kmart went bankrupt, and the smaller businesses have all gone bankrupt as well by Walmart. Wally World has killed this towns economy. Its really sad, since this is such a great little town, but none of the local businesses (except restaurants) can compete with the prices, so most of us in town have to shop there because there is nowhere else.

  21. quote:Originally posted by JUDGExKTF: quote:Originally posted by Grayfox: so whats the problem with ati cards and the game? is there a CTD or something? i got a 9550 and its the only thing that meets the "minimum" requirements... everything else on my rig meets the recommended. i was thinking on purchasing this, but now im kinda hesitant Well, not everyone has problems with Oblivion, and for the people who have problems with Oblivion it is hard to pinpoint the exact source of the problems. Could be the videocard, could be Oblivion, could be the proc. However all the info I read about people who have the same slowdown problem as me all have Ati cards. The back of the box says an ati X800 or nvidia 6800 is recommended. And judging from what I've experienced my self and heard from others; They don't say this just to cover their asses, you REALLY need a good graphicalcard for this game. Yeah, my 9800 is really pushing it. I've had to tone down a lot of the super graphics stuff, like AA, bad looking blood, etc. I've somehow managed to run it with high detail textures and get great fps... I'm blaming having a gig of ram on that though. My distances (except for master and actor distance) are all set REAL low though. This game is really really driving me more and more to upgrade sooner than I originally planned. The only time it drops considerably for me is if I've got grass on and I'm walking through the forest. Thats just not even funny, grass kills my machine.
  22. Wow, thats absolutely amazing how 96,573 steam accounts have over 250 GB of hard disk space. Does anyone, even today, need that amount of space on their home machine?? Very cool though, nifty how the GeForce line of cards are currently the most popular, namely the 6600 series.
  23. quote:Originally posted by JUDGExKTF: Well usually I wouldnt have a problem with this. But now I can't help but feel kinda ripped off. I payed 60 euros for something I can't use and there is no sign of support anywhere. I mailed three times to bethesda and they stated my mail would be answered within 48 hours, but I havent heard from them. And now they're trying to sell me addons for it... I haven't tried for support yet. Haven't needed it. Honestly Bethesda just sort of holed up immediately after they released Oblivion. Not much news from the developers has been released. The Horse Armor, after thinking about it, is a little ridiculous. I can understand things such as the Orrey... but the 2 pieces of Horse Armor are a bit of a rip off. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what comes of this.
