Anyone pick up this game? The stealth-action pace is similar to the original Splinter Cell trilogy, except substitute an array of spells for Sam's high-tech gadgets.

The spells in the game give you a lot more freedom to maneuver throughout each mission, which gives the game a lot more replay value than SC. If you wanted to be stealthy in SC/PT/CT, you really were limited to only one route through the game. Plus, you aren't able to pick up every spell the first time through.

The only disappointing aspect I found with the game is that they muted Corvo rather than giving him a badass personality. I realize they did this to try to make the gamer immerse himself in the world, but it doesn't have that effect.

I updated my drivers not too long ago, and now the card runs really hot when doing mundane things like surfing the web. The fan is on constantly and even shifts up to high, but the card makes the bottom of my laptop too hot to touch for more than 30s or so.

Is there some kind of setting in the new ATI drivers that is making this thing run at 110% all the time? I have "PowerPlay" settings checked and set to max battery...when they were set to max performance, my laptop would reset from overheating when playing games.

General / Off-Topic / PSN hack
« on: May 11, 2011, 07:35:14 PM »
This is geared toward the people on this site with programming/network experience and knowledge.

Obviously it's not news that Sony's PSN was hacked. However, I haven't found much information about the incident other than the fact that it happened and Sony is working to fix it. It doesn't seem like the hackers were after money, since the highest yield of credit card info lies with Xbox Live, which costs money to everyone who uses it.

My question is this: Was the PSN created with inherently lower security than other console's online networks, or were they just unlucky that the hackers in question targeted them vice Microsoft or Nintendo? Links to sources would also be helpful.

Anyone want to play time now? Bonus if you live in the US. I don't even have EAX on my laptop, so all you have to do is plant proxy mines to win.

I'm going to pick this game up regardless, but has anyone read any confirmation whether or not they are bringing back multiplayer? It would be really awesome if Ubi fixed the myriad of bugs and glitches in the process... since the game will be released on a different engine, that's a strong possibility.

Now the question is, will you all finish PS if SC mp is fixed in the hd remix? There doesn't seem like much of a point if that happens

Public Discussion / EMP for mercs
« on: April 10, 2010, 06:21:09 PM »
So I was thinking about how gay camnet is, and how I wish there was something useful to replace it. Then I was thinking...what if the mercs had a way to zap the spy's energy? This would prevent them from using the SS and any energy using gadgets. As a bonus, you could also have the item disable spy special visions temporarily. I always found it funny that people can talk about how OP MT is and EMF ghosting is, but no one mentions how OP spy thermal vision is.

The thing is, I can't think of a way to incorporate this that would be useful. You can't make it a grenade because a frag would be better. You can't really make it a passive security item because mines are better, and zapping a spy's energy when you're not around to take advantage of him not having a SS isn't very useful in general. You could make it some kind of beam or something, but then it'd just be better to snipe the spy.

Make up a fake war movie and advertise it as authentic...movie critics will never know the difference, and the few percentage of people who will don't count anyway.

PS: I know every movie takes creative license even when based on true events. Black Hawk Down is one such movie, which was also screened by the people who were there and has a certain level of authenticity to it...at least by Hollywood standards. However, the Hurt Locker was lauded for being realistic, but has very few realistic elements in it. And I'm not talking about minor stuff like painting a humvee the wrong way.

You can remember a day when you didn't break the law? Include both with and without traffic violations.
