  1. Just spend some time playing the demo. Pretty good visuals so far. The lighting and terrain is awesome. The game's AI is a bit sluggish, but I'm impressed with this game play.
  2. Your basically going in the air force with an open contract and the service will place you where they need people. Don't get screwed, because once you give the oath that's it. Make sure to READ all the paper work you SIGN!!!!!! Talk to your recruiter and get want YOU WANT!
  3. Omg, use your brain!!!! Its an "unofficial" update.... hint hint. Find it on the internet.
  4. FYI for all the peeps, HALO 2 has been unofficially updated to run on XP.
  5. I cant fathom your loss and deeply feel for you. It's very difficult to lose a loved one, last year my 9 yr old dog Chacha past away so I know what it feels like to loose a loved one.
  6. Sorry to tell you guys, but this game is nothing more than an ET mod. I for one will NOT shell any $$$ for this game. You know the old saying " if it aint broke, why fix it!". The original ET is the SH*!*!*!*T to this day. Good luck to all of you trying to dl the beta client. If records goes to show, the servers will be down and most likely password protected like in the past so no one can join. And to no surprise the game will be delayed yet again for another 6-8months after the beta trials. Granted that the DEVELOPER wants to make a great game, but in todays business world the almighty dollar(publisher) will want to get a game out ASAP to make a profit.....my 2 cents.
  7. I did a 4 years in the Marines from 94-98. I loved the experience and the meet alot of interesting people and friends. I was fortunate to see both sides of the Fleet. Its pretty much divided into ground and air, and believe me there is a difference. And yes I would agree military service is not for everyone. Being that your son has a good GPA, his recruiter should have told him about the other options the corps has to offer other than just a regular grunt( 0311 grunt). In his case, he should be considered what the service calls a special screener. Meaning he can do counter intelligence, force recon(must be a good swimmer and good at land nav), or presidential guard duty. Note for force recon, infantry units have better chance than non infantry units to do the force recon indoc and there are height standards for presidential guard duty. Has he considered West Point or the Naval Academy?? Big choice to make. Good luck to him.

    COD 4 Trailer

    Man I'm hoping they dont go the route of COD3 and rush the game out the door like treyarch.

    Starcraft 2

    lolz, I love how peeps fall in love with the rendered movie of a game way early in the dev cycle. Blizzard has a team of artists that is only dedicated to making cut scenes.

    Crysis Video

    I just looked at the latest Dx10 vs Dx9 video for crisis. The only major differences is the lighting. From my observations, the scene takes place at totally different places, and to me it looks like the devs messed with the lighting by added more lights to the scene. Other than that, I dont think it justifies upgrading to a DX10 or vista.....my 2 cents
  11. I just installed XP pro 64 bit, and like everyone else the lack of driver issues. I ran into some problems during the upgrade. I installed the vid drivers before the SP2. This gave me a headache, something about a dll file from direct x 9c missing. I finally got everything squared and installed 3d max 9 and maya 8.5. This progs love the extra memory and utilize it while rendering. The sweet thing about this is that 64bit of xp is free!!! through school. After of 3 days of usage i think i prefer it for my 3d programs instead of 32bit xp. So far I like the OS and how dual boot option works like a charm.
  12. i worked on the game, and this is by far my favorite project. I like to use spiderwoman (she has the highest hit damage), mr fantatastiic, (he's way OP'd) dead pool and inivisible woman(underrated).
  13. try Marvel Ultimate Alliance, FEAR and Oblivion of course.
  14. You can use a x360 controller to play the game. Just dl the drivers from microsoft.
  15. No patches are yet planned. The cleanest platform is the 360.
  16. Dont worry, 1 week after release there will be a patch for HALO 2 to play on xp lol
  17. From the x360dashboard you have to set the resolution to 1080i and make you are using component cables with the switch on the cables set to HDTV. Most HDTV's use 1080p while LCD monitors use 1080i. I have an x360 at work with a the same monitor. any questionts pm.
  18. its a good tv, at my work we have alot of those tv on 360's and its a match made in heaven. Unless if you really want 1080p you might as well get a 24 in dell monitor that has component inputs. the resolution difference between 1080 and 720 is nothing, they both look the same unless you are really picky.
  19. you are sol, uninstall vista and use xp pro. I worked on cod 2 at activision. Only OS we used were xp, 2000, and 98 during the dev phase of the game.
  20. I still play ET its a stand alone online game. Its the original poormans BF, in which EA just copied. lol
  21. Thank you for visting. I am selling a "brand new" CFX 3200-DR/G motherboard. AMD SKT 939. lowering the price to $100+shipping. Contact me on the shipping SOLD
  22. My recommendation is to wait at least till the hardware lowers in price. Right now my work is having alot of issues with Sony's networking. Plus its takes at least 1-2yrs for developers to "catch up" in writing stable code for new consoles. Get an X360, its cheaper, plus u dont have to work out like the Wii.
  23. your are better off getting a dell monitor, 24 or 30 inch. If you are going to use it for gaming this is your best bet. If u just want an HDTV I would recommend waiting till prices come down.... that's my 2 cents
