You're the man, Tom! Massive kudos for all you've done for EG over the past 15 years. I remember when all this was fields, and you've helped nurture a forest!

Book author drops Diablo 3 hints

Rico

Excellent! Diablo was the first online game I spent far too many hours playing. Or maybe it was Quake/world. They were around the same time, IIRC.

I had my 3 dots and gold armour. None of that hacked AAA staff nonsense, though. =)

Quake 4

Beep, my PC specs are as follow:

Intel P4 2.4
Geforce 6800 128Mb
1Gb run-of-the-mill RAM

That's not far off the minimum specs, I think. Quake 4 runs OK as far as single-player is concerned, but multiplayer seems a lot more dependent upon the system specs. I think my MP gaming is restricted by my CPU, not by my video card, but things do run better with some tweaked maps that have been released (search Google for dr4ch FPS maps), in conjunction with the "r_lightDetailLevel" command.

At the moment, MP Q4 is quite frustrating because your own competitiveness in games is dictated to some extent by your PC, and a worse player with a better PC can use that advantage to win against the better player, particularly if his spec is significantly better.

Still, that's always been the way with newly-released games.

Hah, no Alienware anywhere near my garage, no. They keep all the good stuff down in Brighton. =)

Yeah, so Sony registered a dot com domain just for links to the two trailers ? o_O

*shrug* Why not? It isn't as if $10 will break the bank. Or will it?

All the Halflife 2 comments are only here to distract attention away from Halo 2, cause thats the way GC fanboys cope with such things

Of course, what with John Carmack writing Half-Life 2, and all.

I passed comment on the Doom 3 and Half-Life 2 trailers since I saw them both this morning. On the other hand, I haven't seen the Halo 2 trailer, since despite challenging me "to not be astounded by the nine minute trailer", Kristan didn't think to help me along by inclusing a link to it. I've tried http://halo.bungie.org/e3trailermirrors.html (E3 2000 trailer for the original Halo was there, but no Halo 2), I've had a look on www.xbox.com, and shugashack but if the links are there, I can't bloomin' see 'em. For someone that supposedly works within gaming, I really have my finger on the pulse, don't I? =)

OK, mugs!

we challenge you to not be astounded by the nine minute trailer of Halo 2.

OK! Where is it? =)

I've just watched trailers for Doom 3 and Half-Life 2, and they both look absolutely incredible. The one really dodgy bit was in the HL2 trailer where the boards on the door break before the crowbar animation. =/


edit: /me remembers that I wrote this forum to use HTML, not UBB markup tags. Hehe =/ Bah, and I took so long to post that I wasn't first anyway!

My user_id is 1 by virtue of the fact that I wrote the user login/registration code. ;) And my comment on a Judge Dredd thread is no coincidence, since I took my online name from Rico Dredd, Judge Dredd's evil clone brother. =)

But do I get to play my namesake, or am I going to be restricted to that pansy-arse, Joe? ;) Hmm, pls can I play as Cassandra Anderson? From a third-person perspective? \o/

Startled Pancake, that is uncannily accurate in my case. =/ Although you missed the 30 minutes spent trying to unlock the secret mode wherein I get to drive around in a tank, blowing up anyone that has the audacity to overtake me.

Sony Grasps European Concept

and in light of the game’s low quotient of original content will be priced at a lower standard RRP.

Lower than GT3's current Platinum price of 20? Hmm, I might even buy that.

Nabbing user-id No. 1 is a "perk" of writing the thing in the first place. Of course, it's esential for testing etc. I'm also No. 1 on Savage's CAPS (as is my clan). Um, so that's nice, then. =)
