Since Valve owns the content, and Sierra/Vivendi is in a state of flux, going to a publisher that has been on solid ground recently is a good idea for them.

As for Tomb Raider 1, I thought it was an OK movie. I was expecting a bad movie, and it was better than that. Also, I've only played a small portion of the first TR (came with my Voodoo card way back when).

I have no idea if the second Tomb Raider movie is any better than the first or not, but the trailer is poor.  Poorly edited, poorly paced.  It's a bad trailer, inferior to the trailer for the first movie.

joker in new topic:
WHAT THE FUCK IS IT??

stupid propaganda? yesterday al-Sahhaf said Coalition forces were no less than 160 miles away from Baghdad, today they were 'defeated at Saddam airport'. Even the most ignorant Iraqi should be able to grasp the idea that al-Sahhafs stories don't really add up, or at least realize that Coalition forces are advancing just a little more than al-Sahhaf said they are.

There's just still a lot of oppression going on, and Iraqi people are reluctant to put too much faith in the US. Remember, in 1991, 15 out of the 19 Iraqi provinces went into arms against Saddam, but the US Army pulled out, giving Saddam the chance to strike down the uprising. They're afraid it'll happen again and won't count their chickens before they hatch.

You can't live forever on a product from 1998. Sure, all the mods have been packaged up for sale, but they are all pretty much available for download as well.

The fact that Vivendi owns Sierra (and Blizzard) and has been rumored to be selling to anyone with cash can't make Valve feel all that comfortable with them.

Profound mistrust

Such conflicting accounts of events on the ground have been common during the 17-day-old war, and many questioned by Reuters in Arab cities doubted the U.S. claim to have entered Baghdad.

"This is a lie. Even reports that they had taken the airport are a lie. They have not taken any city except Umm Qasr, and even there, their control is shaky," a senior official at Egypt's Justice Ministry said in Cairo.

"I feel like Baghdad has fallen and I'm prepared for it, but at the same time I don't trust those embedded reporters," Mohammed said in Beirut. "Each new piece of news contradicts the last. Someone must be lying. Or maybe they all are."

it's easier for the iraqi regime to let their people believe they're winning, than it is for the US government to conceal their losses.

remember that a lot of journalists quit being embedded and chose to go their own way. on the NOS Journaal in Holland, there's a daily report from one reporter stationed in Baghdad. That guy's really there. And there are numerous other reporters freelancing throughout Iraq, that the US military has no control over. Of course they're being denied military sattelite access, but most networks bring over their own equipment.

re: Death of the PC games industry?


Glancing at the shelf selection at a recent visit to Electronic Boutique,  it does appear as if storeowners are reducing shelf space significantly (alongside smaller size packaging)  reserved for PC titles and making room for console titles.  Most of the PC titles out there  aren't really that interesting to me, even at a reduced price rate,  I already have the titles in top 50 anyway.  

Coincidentally,  I just installed a new power source when the old one died out in my PC.  I fired up a game of The SimsŪ   to create a community of messageboard personality sims and celebrity sims.  This should interesting...

Right now, for me,  it's:

There are serious communication issues on PC recently. People don't understand eachother. Others fight their keyboards. The majority can't spell. Some can't use proper grammer. Many can't even write coherently. And the increasing hostility. And it's only getting worse.

#36 It got to a point where you almost don't want to believe anything. I think Al Sahaf is being very stupid if he thinks he can get away with lies. It's a dumb move. Yesterday I sat behind the TV waiting for some kind of breaking news after Sahaf mentioned the plans they had to kill all the troops at the airport. Nothing! Nada! Then again, it's kindof like the Shock and Awe thing. I'm still waiting for the shock and awe phase of the bombing.

Sorry for straying back on topic, but here is the text from an advertisement on the back cover of a magazine I get.

Equip your PC with the power of NVIDIA GeForce FX.

Before you set off to conquer exotic continents in the spectactular online game, Dark Age of Camelot: Shrounded Isles, be sure to pick up armor, a battle axe...and an NVIDIA GeForce FX graphics processor. Why? Because battling with a few thousand of your friends and foes online will surely bring you and your PC to its knees unless you are armed with blazing firepower and rock-solid compatibility of NVIDIA GeForce FX.

Ask any gamer or game devloper and they will tell you: All the greatest games are developed on NVIDIA, to be played on NVIDIA.

I got a chuckle out of it.  Especially the last part.

How does this sound as far as possible scenarios:

a) Valve reveals that Team Fortress 2 is being killed as a standalone game.
b) Valve announces Half-Life 2, to be published by Activision.
c) TF2 resurfaces as the multiplayer portion of HL2, either shipped with the game or available for download after launch, possibly through Steam.
d) Following the retail release of DoD, Activision and Valve follow up by publishing Natural Selection.
e) The rumors of "Half Life 2 exclusively for Xbox/Nvidia etc. etc." all turn out to be false.
f) Valve's allegedly spiffy new engine is made available for licensing.

I see it as a sort of conversational in-breeding.  Perhaps its all getting worse because the site has been just this group for so long with little new blood.  Its the reason for The List.

bet you this is something along the lines of what STALKER is doing, if you have an Nvidia card you get to see extra funky stuff, if you dont you still get to play the game but sans 'supar majik stuffs'.

cant see Valve killing 50+ (pnooma) of their possible market by going with just one brand of card.

US begins the process of 'regime change'

The decision to proceed with an embryonic government comes in response to memoranda written by Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld last week, urging that the US begin to entrench its authority in areas under its control before the war is over.

Pentagon officials told The Observer that the administration is determined to impose the Rumsfeld plan and sees no use for a UN role, describing the international body as 'irrelevant'.


But, the UN is not irrelevant when it comes to helping with aid in iraq. They are irrelevant, when it comes to controling iraq, and the oil there.
