General / Battlefront III and the tale of Free Radical
« on: May 12, 2012, 04:45:51 PM »
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-05-04-free-radical-vs-the-monsters

I don't know if any of you guys have seen this, but I figured that it might make an impact on the community. This is a long and in-depth article about LucasArts and Free Radical, and the hidden story of the rise and fall of Battlefront III from a highly innovative game to largely a pile of junk, and LucasArts' effect on it.

I came away from this article disappointed. LucasArts hasn't put out anything good lately, and I think that it's largely because of their terrible business practices. I hope that one day, they will turn themselves around and become the publishing powerhouse they used to be - with games like KotOR, SWBF1, and Republic Commando.

Interested to hear you guys' thoughts.

Tech Support / Headset recommendations
« on: December 30, 2010, 12:00:00 AM »
Hey guys!

I'm looking for a headset, since my Koss PortaPro headphones' wires are on the verge of snapping in half, and I would prefer to have a backup solution before having to resort completely to my in-ear headphones.

My requirements are thus: must be under $50 before shipping, must include a microphone, must have good review from you or from some major ecommerce site. Does not have to be USB or anything weird like that.

If, alternatively, you have a good set of headphones under $50, then please recommend it as well. I can always get a desktop microphone or just use my ghetto-rigged existing one, but I would prefer to purchase a straight headset.

Thanks!

Other Games / Minecraft

Who else has Minecraft here? I picked it up today since I wanted to get in on the alpha pricing.

If you have it, can someone give me some pointers? I get the basics but I don't really know how to do any of the advanced stuff that other people seem to be able to do.

Other Games / BioWare to announce new game at VGAs
« on: November 17, 2010, 07:54:28 PM »
As a BioWare fan, this news excites me tremendously. They will be announcing a new game December 11th at the VGAs on Spike.

You can see some info and the trailer here. Rumors are going around that it is a Shattered Steel reboot, but my personal opinion is that it's just Mass Effect 3 (though "just" Mass Effect 3 would be awesome to so many levels).

Post your thoughts here... this will have me watching the VGAs, even though they suck tremendous amounts!

Tech Support / Computer Lockup
« on: July 23, 2010, 05:11:35 PM »
Hey tech experts-

I'm having some big problems with my Asus G73Jh.

The problem is that it will completely lock up on attempting to start any program. It freezes, and the screen stays stuck on whatever it was doing. Nothing will happen, and the computer goes noticeably quieter. The problem does not come about in Safe Mode, as I am able to launch Firefox and the like. I am thinking the issue is with the display drivers, so I installed the latest ones for the 5870M. Once installed, they did nothing to help solve the issue. If anything, the system worked better without them- no crashes then.

Programs that this has been experienced with are Trillian, Xfire, Steam, and Firefox 4.0. All of these have at one time or another caused the computer to go completely unresponsive.

I'm worried, because this is a very expensive laptop and I would hate to have it die on me. Do any of you have any suggestions?

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
