    Re: Asian giant for HC

    [quote user="giantyankee1976"][quote user="SEC105"]So tonight I expect to get a big dose of "we have to end our dependence on oil" from President Obama on his TV speech. To bad we did not start 30 years ago when President Carter pushed for it. Is there really going to be a push in this country to finally get this gorrilla [oil] off our back? I ,for one, would not mind it at all[/quote]

    we've known about bio-diesel since the late 60's.....but Big Oil did all it could to squash that.

    i really hate politics.
    [/quote]


    The speech has come and gone. And nothing will change. It's just another speech.

    I am all for moving away from oil if the alternative is equal or better.The problem is that oil provides us with the status quo, we haven't found anything yet that will still give us status quo and replace oil.....

    lol I never heard of it, but I believe you. Some games are just done right and you can play them for hours. I downloaded the Split Second demo which is a pretty cool racing game. The graphics are amazing....

    Oh trust me, I've been there done that. Played FPS since the first Doom came out. It changed everything. Well actually Wolfenstein like you mentioned started it all, then Doom came along. Back then we didn't have the computer horsepower that we do now, but those games are LEGENDS!
    They've changed everything. I played a little bit of Quake too but not as much, I think I was more of a Doom guy.

    Those were the days though, I haven't played them in years but they are very nostalgic to me...

    I only play the demo for Killzone 2, but that's a very impressive game. Dice is coming out with a new Frostbite engine, so I can't wait to see how their newer games are going to look and play...

    I'm going to get my hands on Bad Company 2 eventually....it looks very very impressive, and that is only with Frostbite engine 1.5......wait until Frostbite Engine 2.0.

    They have a feature called bulletdrop or something like that, so you have to take into account many things in order to be accurate...

    Oh I think my PC gaming days are over. I'm on PS3 now. Eventhough using a mouse and keyboard I think is 1000% better than using a controller. I just don't have the time or money to build a gaming PC to handle today's games.

    You're right though, I think the next version of Dice's engine might be on PC only, not actually sure that is all about. The PS3 is suppose to b e 10x better than anything you can build on PC....
