Re: Firefox 3.0.11 Released Today

I started using chrome since I noticed it is significantly faster. Not as many features though.

Re: Infomercial King Billy Mays dies.

Sounds like an epidural hematoma, but usually that involves loss of consciousness. Not just a hit on the head.

Not sure of the details, but it's crazy. He was interviewed by Conan just a few days ago.

Re: Any other Vista user have a problem with Windows 7

I agree about DX11, but it is being released for both Vista and 7. It's not exclusive. Seems like every other operating system had a bad vibe, wouldn't surprise me at all if the one in three years flops. It's just Windows 7 isn't particularly different from Vista, it's just optimized to be more effi...

Any other Vista user have a problem with Windows 7

I like Windows 7, it's just it seems like it is just a copy of Windows Vista optimized to be faster. So instead of doing a SP3, they released it under a new franchise to make money off current Vista users to upgrade, and persuade all the Vista-haters who still use XP to finally upgrade. I feel like ...

Re: Console vs. PC - Is the gap closing.

Yeah that's my point, it's way cheaper to convert your PC to game. But there are certain games on consoles that don't really work on PC or aren't available at all, things like MGS4, Ninja Gaiden 2, and the upcoming God of War 3 or the next Final Fantasy game.

Re: Console vs. PC - Is the gap closing.

For me the PC choice is really simple. Everyone needs a PC, not everyone needs an HDTV and home theater system (I live on a tight budget and move around pretty frequently, so it's more of a hassle than what it is worth). To convert a PC into a gaming PC, all you really need is some more RAM and a de...

Post-apocalyptic world with zombies? I'll take my chances out in the open. It's just hard to follow st...

Re: Interesting Test

You can't really diagnose anything with a written test. Probably someone diagnosed with AG will score higher than 32, but the test fails to distinguish the bell curve of normal people. Mental issues in general are difficult to diagnose. But anyone with a mild case of social anxiety will probably sho...

Re: Fallout 3 Review

That's interesting cause I chose small arms as one of my skills, but around 30 points or so (which is what you get) it won't hit. I think I need to up my agility.

I just got the game and started it, all I can say it is freaky :P Awesome but I wish some of the faulty mechanics from oblivion were improved more on, also apparently I should restart since I didn't grab that bobblehead (not too far in, plus I made all the wrong choices for attributes). They give yo...

Re: I hate SecuROM

Yeah securom tends to punish paying customers as the game gets cracked within 24 hours of release anyway. When I buy games like that, I just download the no cd crack anyway. Once it is yours you can do whatever you want with it IMO. totally agree. i went to the store and bought the game with my har...

Re: Call of Duty World At War - Do You Like It?

It's good but once you unlock some of the higher weapons it can get boring and repetitive. Especially when you're not very good at the game.

It's a pretty solid game though. I'm deciding to give Fallout 3 a go or just resign my gaming to wrath.

Re: Call of Duty: World at War Beta

Been playing it, a lot of fun but definitely buggy. The invisible walls are irking me, also the set of spawn points is kind of small- you can get spawn-killed really easily. I also noticed that other people's skill level is insane compared to mine. If I jump and shoot I won't hit anything, that guy ...

Re: Rebates and you

I agree with patience on rebates. Only word of caution though, when you cut up your box for the UPC and send it in you void your ability to return the item even if it is a malfunctional part. Obviously test the product right away, but some problems don't manifest until later. Hope you're not that un...
