    Thanks for the explanation.

    The kind of people presented in this video are the danger for any democracy. They mindlessly support and vote for somebody whose political targets they don't even know and fuel a dangerous personality cult. I'm glad that Palin doesn't know her targets either, diminishing her potential danger. PS: Can you help me with the part beginning at 3:23? I hear them talking about SARS, which makes no sense obviously.

    You mean: in contrast to her more capable colleagues, who are better at saying nothing with a lot of words?

  5. Duke Nukem Forever Canned [and then not]

    It's blurred to not violate Youtube regulations. And it's in the trailer to show what's in the actual game. The game won't be censored of course. @Jake: What did you expect? This trailer shows everything what Duke is all about. I only played Duke3D. But I've always seen it as a well done fps put in a silly monster-sci-fi-soft-porno frame - with over-the-top violence, macho behaviour, immature humor and hot topless chicks.
  6. The threat of Big Dog

    Optomitrists? Are these the ones with that disconcerting procedure where they grab your eyeballs and tell you to cough?

  9. The threat of Big Dog

    This looks (no pun intended) like an effective way to induce a ptosis (fig. 1: ).

    Oh, and this is... absolutely breathtaking! Such mad skills are utterly enviable.

    What a coincidence! I was going to post this:
  13. Post your face!

    Damon's beak looks different though.

    Intel just released their new mainstream platform "Sandy Bridge". Desktop solutions are already available. Mobile solutions will be released soon (probably within the next few weeks). It may be worth waiting. Intel’s Sandy Bridge: Upheaval in the Mobile Landscape
  15. Need to buy a laptop. Advice plx! Tnx.

    Photoshop and 3d rendering are considerably multi-threaded. I would therefore suggest to look out for a quad-core cpu (maybe even an Intel i7 with hyper-threading). They furthermore benefit from lots of RAM. 8 gigs are recommended. Display-wise I suggest a non-glossy surface to avoid nasty reflections, which would render the display pretty much useless for any serious image editing. You may also consider, that laptop display panels are TN-based, which are not the ideal solution for color-critical work.

    I've only watched the first part so far, but from the dialogs, to the narration, to the overall game design, it's quite an impressive work for a twelve-year old. The silly humor for instance is well delivered and entertaining. I doubt that I would have been able to achieve smth. like this when I was only twelve. To cut a long story short: You make me feel like a once stupid kid.

    RedLetterMedia has released Mr. Plinkett's delicate analysis of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Tshi. Click here*. *Warning: review contains explicit images of pussy rape.
  18. I played the game with a Logitech PS2-style pad back then. It worked just fine. Though I haven't tried my current Xbox 360 pad, yet. But I'm certain that there is a way to play the game with it aswell. I agree that it wouldn't be fun playing with keyboard and mouse here.

  20. [smug]Oh, you silly console owners! I already played Sands of Time "HD" back in 2005. And I'm not talking 720p30. I'm talking 1050p60/16:10. And if I want to, I can grab the very same game and play it at 1080p60 right now. If I feel like it. And if even that isn't enough, I downsample it from 1440p60 (to get rid of pesky aliasing and shimmering). Tata![/smug]

    This. I discoverd this game a few minutes ago. My mind went while watching the new gameplay video. And then I realized, that I forgot to check the release platforms: "Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network" FFFFFFFFFFFFU Oh, and while we're on it: Brütal Legend for PC? No? FFFFFFFFFU :fart:
  22. Back to the Future

    :( Telltale's sound department: When checking the Telltale forums, I found a single thread concerning this issue with only one reply sofar, stating, that he/she doesn't perceive it, and never did in any of Telltale's games. As long as only so few people complain about this issue, Telltale will not fix it. They only fixed it once, when many people complained about this issue in a particular ToMI episode.
  23. Back to the Future

    Will there be a demo at some time? I don't want to buy a pig in a poke. I probably wouldn't have bought S&M S3 without a demo (to verify non-distorted voices, among other things).
