  1. A computer isnt a console though. Its defiantly the best for games though IMO.

    Also, for games, vista beats xp (due to directx 10 being amazing), although the huge jump in minimum requirements for games for vista from xp is kinda bad (my processor is at least 1 GHz below the supposed minimum for pretty much all of my games due to vista)

    And yes, im working on programming games. Small time though. I dont have enough time to devote to programming, and im way too young to be getting a full time job as a game programmer.

  2. Im 3 posts away from #13 in post counts! So if I post this message, then head over to some of the forum games, I should re-gain that position! :twisted:

    But yea, it REALLY doesnt matter. It doesnt make you look any better. You dont get any reward. Nothing changes. I'd rather be some guy with very little but meaningful posts then a ton of spammy, pointless posts.

  3. NES = Great start with some great 2D games

    SNES = A more powerful console, mastering 2D games with some of the greatest games

    N64 = A start at 3D, but a little too soon IMO. Still some alright games, but not too impressive of a console

    Gamecube = A huge step in power from the N64. Lots of great games, and really fun.

    Wii = Looks good, but I dont know enough to rate it. Ill be getting one soon hopefully, mostly for brawl and crysis. The ability to purchase older games and play on your wii looks good, but ill have to wait to see how cool this console is.

    PS = Really fun. Some of my favorite games of all time were playstation games.

    PS2 = Pretty impresive. Large selection of great games. Also a really great console.

    PS3 = Not sure, but it looks amazing. If I were to choose between this and a 360, I would get this without a doubt.

    Xbox = Not as fun as PS2. I pretty much hate xbox's

    Xbox 360 = bloody potato. I hate it. I dont think I could be any more against xbox's. Dont bother asking me what I have against them, because theres just too much.

    As for a favorite, im not sure. PS and PS2 are pretty good, but the SNES is also really good, but in different ways.

    EDIT:

    ps: I would like to encourage all game programmers to make OpenGL games instead of DirectX, to make better use of people's hardware

    NEVER!!

    Well maybe someday, but for now, im sticking with directx

  5. Random off-topic-ness: I think Pixelate is a blur, not a distortion.

    Agree? Disagree? Want to throw a brick at my head?

    I disagree so badly i want to throw a brick at your head. Its not a blur, it just is used sometimes to blur things like on tv and stuff. Blurs mix the colors. Pixelate just pixelates the image.

  6. is posting from my archos 605 while connected to my tv also i cant find the enter key on this remote... i would say that this is one of the best if not the best mp3 players out there today if you dont mind carrying a brick in your pocket. other than its size it is an amazing pmp

    just found the enter button...

  7. BRD won the battle hands down, almost from the beginning. To tell you the truth, I was rooting for HD-DVD in the beginning, but was forced to go the other way when I noticed that it was winning. It was only after that when I actually looked the two up on Wiki. BRD FTW!

    Oh, and here's something I did in Inkscape earlier today:

    That song is stuck in my head!

    Thats a good song. I wish I could hear it but my speakers arnt working for some reason right now for some reason (probobly not plugged in). And also, HD-DVD died about a month ago, which i think is great. Blu-ray all the way! Now all i need to do is get a blu-ray drive for my computer.

  8. 8800GT's aren't that bad..
    you do know that thats the power cable/supply dont you

    that's exactly why I'm doubting it's enough.. 2 graphics card and a quad core, well, I would guess that would be right on the edge of 700W, but that's just a guess, which is why it should be checked

    8800GT's arnt bad at all. Its just that getting 2 of them will cost about the same as 1 9800, which looks like it would have much more powerful. Its also a lot easier to upgrade a computer if you get 1 really good card than 2 alright cards.

  9. It looks like microsoft is learning from the fact that vista is a $100+ piece of bloody potato. Windows 7 is supposed to be released in 2009-2011. It seems like vista, but without all of the flaws with vista. Its too soon to tell it this will be the new xp/2000, but hopefully it will be a lot better than vista.

    Windows > Mac still, but thats only because im forced to use windows in order to run all of my windows stuff, and that its better for gaming.

  10. If you get a good computer to start with, you will not be able to play new games on "Very High" after a while, but for good games (gameplay-wise good, but just pretty-looking) the medium settings are usually OK.. (do you really need Very High in Crysis?) and often, old games remain good (example: Knights and Merchants, runs on all PC's with more than 64MB RAM, still a nice game; AoE 2, kinda old and not-so-good-looking but still played a lot; Even Guild Wars, played very much but only requires DX8; even World of Warcraft doesn't need a powerfull PC)

    If you ever try Crysis in very high, you wont ever want to go back to medium :D Thats why im getting a new graphics card soon.

    My favorite console is the PC. Very powerful, and you have a lot of control over the game (ex. When World in Conflict comes out for 360, it wont be nearly as fun.) Theres ton of great games to choose from, including IMO, some of the greatest games in history. Upgrades for computers i would ussually do about the same time as the release of next generation consoles, because most of the games are based off of the console versions. It seems like consoles are becoming more and more like computers though, but a PC still owns them at gaming.

  11. Kingdom of Loathing!

    Its free, but its text based. Its still extremly fun and addictive, and unlike most online games, its not full of spamming little 6 year olds. :D

    I never liked that game

    It took me about a week untill i started to like it. I tried it one day and thought it was the stupidest thing i had ever played about 20 minutes later. About a week after that, i was bored and i decided to give it another chance. That was just about 3 years ago. Its amazing how long it stays fun.

    Other than that, im not really a fan of mmorpgs. They arnt really games, just more like communities and developers trying to keep the players addicted to gain more profit. Single player games online are the best way to go. Right now im playing crysis online (its alright) and World in Conflict online (its amazing). Both have no monthly fees or anything, and they are really fun.
