Oh, also been playing Max Payne 3 in 3D. It looks amazing, the bullet time effects and slow motion do look phenomenal when it's all kicking off, but the story... It's so heavy heanded, to the detriment of the gameplay. I'm only 3 episodes in and I reckon I've seen everything the game has to offer. It's just so annoying when you're getting into the flow of a level and cuts to a cut scene literally every 3/4 minutes. not really that fussed about finishing it right now.

Still hammering the Day Z mod for Arma2

How are you finding the patch?

I bought the whole game just for this poxy mod, and my connection is too slow  Cry

Should have waited for it to be a full release

There were some mad lagging problems to do with vehicles and the addition of melee weapons. Give it another try with

I think the game is really beginning to shine, the lack of a starter weapon, the more aggressive walkers but the ability to lose them has started to make this game shine. It's incredibly tense in those first 20/30 minutes. I was having a blast last night. First snuck through Cherno looking for medical supplies, then north to Vyspor to fix up a mate with broken legs, we both found hatchets and made our way back to the coast. Hooked up with 11 lads off a gaming forum I'm on, got picked up in a boat we repaired, then went to base, fixed up a Landrover and went and raided a couple of towns and airfield. We lost a man to walkers, and the game spazzed out a couple of times, but it was so much fun and still tense and fast paced when the walkers start swarming.

I am incredibly excited for when this eventually gets released as a proper game.

As long as the updates keep coming for the game, I really don't see me playing anything else for a while as new features really force you to adapt and survive in new ways. I'm curious to see how they handle the bandit situation, the heart beat monitor is cool but limited in scope.

Just got Heavy Rain and MGS HD collection for my PS3. Really looking forward to checking these out.

Still hammering the Day Z mod for Arma2 and the Binding of Isaac. Still managed to avoid D3, but I fear my will power to resist is crumbling.

Last of Us - PS3 exclusive, running on PS3.
Watch Dogs - All HD formats, running on a VERY high end rig. You'll never see physics and graphics like that on a console this gen.
BEYOND: Two Souls - PS3 only. Next Quantic Dream (Heavy Rain) expedition. Should be interesting.

Some of the most boring media centre corporate hype from the big 3 conferences this year. Save for trying to get an xbox into every fucking living room ever, it was sequels as far as the eye could see.

Hopefully as videos start popping up from the the dev/publisher stalls the interesting games will emerge. Watch Dogs and Last of Us are seriously though only remotely interesting things I have seen thus far.

NON E3 stuff:

* Go buy Binding of Isaac, it's loads of fun and has a huge expansion just come out.

* Arma 2 mod Day Z is probably my game of the year.

* Arkham City is amazing, but not amazing enough for me to buy the DLC for it.

* Journey is one of the most genuinely emotionally touching games I have ever played and puts every corny cut scene that AAA devs ram down you throat to shame for this.

* I have some how found the will power to not get Diablo3 yet, will end my social life, love life and possibly career.

Ricorb - I got the originals of both,but the HD remakes are certainly on my list.

Zat -  that Draug fight, is that the one with the undead army commander who is that huge wooden+steel angular monstrosity, that was such a cool monster, it looked phenomenal when I fought him.

Clive - with the EE out today, it's gotta be worth a reinstall. That tentacle fight is a shame, it's nearly the only instance of QTE in the entire game, just not a great fight.

Conversely, I bought and played the Witcher 2 at launch, thought it was fantastic, lacked a bit of depth of the first one and the combat can be real tricky (all about crowd control, use of bombs, potions and signs). However, the characters are wonderfully detailed, the story line is fairly mature and well thought out, the voice acting is pretty solid as well. The complexity of the story and how it's actually meaningfully affected by the choices you make (to go so far as to completely change the second act in location, characters and story) far surpasses any other game I have seen purport meaningful choices. I personally would say it's nothing like Skyrim (save the fantasy setting) and the combat is very visceral and involving (my main complaints about Skyrim being the lack thereof). The game is so colourful and an absolute joy to watch. I am very excited about the Enhanced edition, the patch is 11gigs! And packs out what was quite a short and sparse third act.

Having seen videos of the console port I highly recommend checking it out, it looks as good as can get on the consoles. Plus the PC original had a solid control mapping for the xbox pad, so it should control really well with all the tweaks (and the devs have said they have paid atteniton to input lag).

In other news, I just got a PS3 finally! Woop, only going to play console exclusives on it, so starting on the Uncharted series. Trying to sign up to PSN and almost comically, the servers are down.

I've been playing a LOT of the Binding of Isaac recently. Great game if somewhat dark.

Bought Psychonauts and all the DLC for Civ 5 in a steam sale last week. Particularly looking forward to Psychonauts having never played it.

Really looking forward to ME3, borrowing a mate's Kinect to see how it pans out with it.

No, because I stay away from savage regions of the globe.

Thailand? Savage?!
I've failed to detect sarcasm there. Please clarify.

For someone who purports himself to be the pinnacle of the alpha male evolution, I was surprised you'd find somewhere as docile and generally easy going, scary.
I blame Street FIghter and Sagat. He was so ruthless.
I'm sure there are lovely parts of Thailand and the whole ping pong show, child prostitution and hookworm thing is just a small part of a wonderful country. The problem if I went there would be looking for this hidden gem of paradise, turning up and it being filled with loads of Australians and spoiled shits on a gap year.
Same goes for India and the entirety of Central and South America.

Veering clear of Phuket and Koh Samui pretty much safe guards you from the gap year contingent. I went to a national park can Sam Roi Yot, and me and my girl found a beach stretching about 3 miles in either direction. Not another soul to be seen. There was one little cafe tucked into the forest, which served up the seafood caught not half a mile from the table it was served on. Where you could watch all types of monkeys and wildlife getting on with their thing. The colours, I saw shades of green in this place I didn't know existed, crystal blue waters that I genuinely began to believe only existed on tv. I reckon even you could find you're little corner of paradise out there. I think I had found mine.

Morning all,

I need a laptop stand that will perch over a 1210 deck with enough space for me to take records on and off the platter unimpeded (means I can have my MPD24 controller to the side) Any recommendations? The two I'm looking at are:

As it looks solid and clamps to the desk.


as it's cheap and adjustable height at max 35cm which I think is high enough.
17  General / The Forum / Re: Laser based weather control. on: March 06, 2012, 13:03:13
The RAF did that rain inducing thing, lacing the clouds with some silver compound. Ended up flash flooding a small village (Lynmouth ring s a bell for some reason) and a couple of people died. RAF never took responsibility as far as I can recall.

Guess lasers would be a lot more effective, and if you can promote better growing conditions instead of using fertilisers and chemical agents then it's probably a good thing. As long as it's regulated by some kind of environmental agency, otherwise it'll end up like every other resource, strip-mined/damaged beyond repair.

Soul Motive returns with new website and new projects:

After distros caving in, short angry label owners trying to shut us down and thrash metal being substituted in for Dubstep, we're back to set things right. Back and with the spoils of having hunted around to find those gems in the rough. Very pleased to announce a couple of side projects you might also be interested in.

Soul Motive White:

Bangers with samples that will get us in more trouble. Ultra limited runs on vinyl (digi inluded of course) available from http://www.soulmotive.co.uk right now. And other record shops as of the 5th September. You will only be able to buy the mp3 from our site.

<a href="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Fplaylists%2F914092" target="_blank">http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Fplaylists%2F914092</a>

Two Floors Down:

The experimental live sister label to Soul Motive, bring live artists, singers, bands and emcees to dubplate and digital release. Although a digital label, we struck up a deal with http://www.dubstudio.co.uk to provide all the heads with customised dubplates for half the usual price. And they'll have artwork! And you get the MP3 with as well! Kicking off with the enigmatic Coleco and a selection of tunes I know a fair few forum heads have been fiending for a while. And the title track off of Coleco's forthcoming album for good measure. I promise you will not hear anything else like it from anyone. Dubplates available now from our store, digital release on 5th September.

I do like the fact that the behemoth in that article has been spruced up! It must have looked like some kind of victorian railway hardware before. SLI 580's is madness in a laptop, the heat that thing must generate must be insane. And heavy as well, but damn I bet Arkham City looks fucking amazing on it.

Edit - It's not a 3d screen though! There's no game out there that will ever touch the sides of 2 x 580 right now. And by the time there is much better cards will be out. I don't understand it tbh. Is it for modelling/rendering?
23  General / The Forum / Re: GAMERS! on: February 20, 2012, 20:55:31
3 things need to happen right now.

1. You need to assure me this isn't a Living Legends update (Which is a superb mod for Crysis Wars).
2. You need to make sure that this isn't the much rumoured but inevitably doomed Mechwarrior reboot that had that amazing trailer about a year or so ago, because I believe that's dead in the water.
3. ou need to provide a link for verification for what will inevitably be awesome if true.

26  General / The Forum / Re: This is not a PC vs Mac debate... on: February 16, 2012, 13:33:13
On the contrary, I'm not defending Windows, I'm trying to ensure that misinformation isn't put about for either platform as I like them both.

Like despite working in IT in an office environment I've never, ever come across Word launching on it's own. Just spoke to the rest of the team and they've never heard of it either. I own an AMD/ATI gfx card and play games and didn't come across the update issue you described. I frequently max out my homebuilt desktop with the GPU and most of the cores running at full whack and nothing bad happened.

As I've said before, there's nothing to choose between them unless you listen to internet scare stories like yours.

Ok, must never have happened then! My bad.  Two Thumbs
27  General / The Forum / Re: This is not a PC vs Mac debate... on: February 16, 2012, 12:07:49
Yeah, but you did put your experiences forward as if they were objective fact.

To list a few things that are certainly questionable to my mind:

(1) Windows by it's very nature is less stable (How's that then?)
(2) Windows struggles with high level activity and 'custom parts' (Eh? And what the hell are custom parts?)
(3) Explorer crashing, products launching themselves (Again, eh?)
(4) Driver errors/conflicts (Sounds like you've either got driver issues which are manufacturer issues - the price you pay for being at the cutting edge, or you've got broken hardware)
(5) A computer illiterate will struggle with Windows (I put it to you that a computer illiterate will struggle with computers, regardless of OS)
(6) The 'nightmare' of windows updates/instability (Honestly when did an update last screw your computer? Because for me it was the release of the developers beta of IE4 in 1999. Back then we weren't even on an NT based home OS and OSX didn't exist except in labs)

I could go on.

I've had OSX machines both official and unofficial, Windows and Linux boxen and really the only difference is whether you need to use platform specific software or not. Anybody who says otherwise has been drinking the koolaid. Like Zat0ichi says, either I'm incredibly lucky or you're incredibly unlucky.

I could phrase every post with 'imo', in fact I used to but thought we had all grown up to the fact that anyone's post is 'imo'.

1. The number of software/hardware configurations, the mix of legacy coding, the different applications and uses of apis like DirectX to control hardware.
2. When you're doing things that are really processor intensive/hammering your gfx card is when the cracks start to show (and by custom I mean things that you probably installed yourself instead of a prebuilt matched component rig from Dell or alike).
3. There's a known problem with microsoft word where it will run even when the program hasn't been initiated by the user. And, honestly if explorer has never crashed on you, then props.
4. Which was the exact point I'm making hence making reference to the extremes of the scale.
5. Again without any definitve HCI research with random and selected samples of users, then neither of us can say for definite. I would put it forward that OSX is perhaps renowned for being the easier o/s to use?
6. A windows update conflicted with the ATI drivers near the end of 2011 meaning certain games wouldn't work.

I get that you're defending WIndows or whatever that's cool, it's nice to get passionate about something you believe in. Unfortunately I have had to use a wide variety of computers through my work and personal life and (lucky or not) my experience is as I say, patchy reliability with WIndows based machines. I'm certainly not making out that anyone should go and buy a mac and that, and if you actually read my initial post I had said the exact thing you had in that platform specific software is the deciding factor. But the original post asked for experiences and opinion on what platform is better, so I gave my experience. It also asked for no bickering.
28  General / The Forum / Re: This is not a PC vs Mac debate... on: February 16, 2012, 11:56:02
This is it though, it's this mad mix of hardware and software that is PC's achilles heel (imo for jack). Windows 7 is a great o/s without a doubt a technical masterpiece imho. But I still get the explorer crashing (a hangover from xp if I remember right) across multiple machines, restricted software installs or not. And I have yet to experience a crash on a mac with legit software.
29  General / The Forum / Re: This is not a PC vs Mac debate... on: February 16, 2012, 11:45:53
PC all the way man! I have never had a BSOD with 7 but I have had system hangs and Explorer crashing regularly. You definitely get more for your money, even more so if you build it yourself.
30  General / The Forum / Re: This is not a PC vs Mac debate... on: February 16, 2012, 11:34:08
everything you've posted is very subjective.
As is everything ever posted on a forum?

Kind of hard not to be subjective on the topic without having access to failure rates, psychological studies on HCI, random user sample tests and expert opinion. Though if you have these, I'd be interested to read them though! Everything I have posted comes from experience of people working said jobs in industry and I have nothing else to refer to.
31  General / The Forum / Re: This is not a PC vs Mac debate... on: February 16, 2012, 11:17:34
Windows 7 arrived and finally put PCs on a square footing with mac reliability.

No way man, Windows by it's very nature is less stable and I have yet to experience a windows machine that will handle any high level activity with custom parts and not struggle. I have two lappies and a desktop with it on and a mac laptop that's now 4 years old. The lappys work fine, but they're work laptops, although they get a fair workout with the software I have to use, I certainly wouldn't trust personal critical files/processes to them without regular backups. Explorer crashing, microsoft products opening of their own accord, it's just not worth it.

My gaming desktop, though a thing of fucking beauty when it works, will regularly spew some driver errors out or conflicts or boot me out of a game etc etc etc.
32  General / The Forum / Re: This is not a PC vs Mac debate... on: February 16, 2012, 11:11:41
If you're not interested in the mechanics of computers, if you're just your average user, surfing the web, maybe typing and email or putting a spreadsheet together, then yeah PC's are all fin and dandy. No real benefits over macs or vice versa, the difference comes when you move to the more extremes of the scale.

A computer illiterate is going to struggle with Windows, unless they buy a sealed unit (ie: matched components like a mac) and never have to look at control panel. OSX is still by far and wide a simpler and more reliable o/s, though it suffers from being overly simplistic as follows-

An enthusiast gamer is going to struggle with a Mac, the inability to easily upgrade components, the lack of support for Mac OSX in the gaming industry and the limitations the OSX customisability options are all going to affect how usable a Mac is in this situation.

A semi-pro graphics guy is going to be happy with either Mac or PC, the difference at that level is minor. It's always nice to have something that looks nice when you're working in a creative industry, but if the you're priced out of the mac market then your decision is made for you. There ARE more benefits than just a pretty case, but in beginner/mid level industry, value is ruling factor .

A top end gfx guy is going to end up getting a 7 grand mac with 3 cinema screens running off one of those mad nvidia quad cards, because the system won't fail on him and he won't have the nightmares of windows updates and the instability that comes from having to support hundreds of millions of different computer hardware configurations. Though I know a few studios have moved to just server based rendering which is almost always windows based architecture.

A music guy is going to have his choice made by his preferred platform, Logic is on the mac, the rest are usually multi platform or windows based. High end studio tend to bump more specialised platforms with dedicated hardware that'll run on either o/s. Again macs are better in this situation unless you're happy with the innards of computers and optimising pc's for specific jobs.

I have a PC for gaming and a mac for music. It would be a pain in the arsehole to do this the other way round, but certainly not impossible. There's always the option of dual booting or hackintoshs etc. Gotta think about the software and applications you will use more than anything. There's certainly a mark up on Mac's price wise because of their perceived market value, but a savvy purchaser is unlikely to have problems getting the right supplier and price to match the equivalent Dell or other brand name PC.
33  General / The Forum / Re: GAMERS! on: February 16, 2012, 10:56:50
Jesus, that's a machine. How much did it cost?!

Steam does support Macs now but the game selection is limited, you'll inevitably have to install windows on it (probably dual booted via bootcamp) if you wanna run the biggest and best games.

I'm guessing you got the mac for music production primarily? Either way it'll chew up anything you throw at it.
34  General / The Forum / Re: GAMERS! on: February 15, 2012, 13:07:17
So renting MW3 finally this week. It's quite stunting (not in a balling way) after BF3. I dunno, the SP and CoOP smashes BF3 by a very long distance, but the MP... I guess you HAVE to say it's just a different type of game, it's so drastically different.

I am enjoying the survival mode and spec ops a lot more though, I guess the coop lends itself better to the frenetic pace of MW3 rather than the tactical one of BF3. Makes the AI a lot easier to program as well I guess.

I'm struggling to see any positives of MW3 MP though, even if I hadn't played BF3 (120 hours deep now) I think the return and spamming of the perks system, the arcade pace and action just doesn't suit me at all.

I'm sure your experience of american service has been superb. But mediterranean service, particularly the Spanish and the Italian service is the best on the planet. The Americans (and the English especially) should be shamed by it. I can only imagine that down in the deep south states where people serve local produce that they are actually proud of does it compare, but the Spaniards and Italians have that shit on lock down. Until the waiter comes and sits down with you, brings a bottle of wine, brings the chef whose also his Dad out and talks about how they raised the pig you just ate, 'service' is getting your TGI Fridays with a 'have a nice day'.

But I can't help but think it reached it's peak in the late 80's early 90's when the music of the time suited it? I can't help but see or hear turntablists and think, I'd much rather hear the tunes and a good selection of them blended beautifully, rather than bizarre arhythmic noises and snatches of some classic beats (and the constant use of the 'fresh' sample over the last 2 decades). I just don't see/hear the point or relevance.

Maybe I'm too old/young for this shit anymore.

Best night I've had in Bristol, dnb wise, in the last 2 years was at B45. Worst one I have been to for about 8 years was at Black Swan. Madness to try and take away the intimate vibe. Getting my tickets this afternoon, they got them in idle hands?

I think JME's 96 Fuckries is in the charts right now, 35 I think. A decent excuse to book a grime night.  Bad Teeth

My little brother has been to council sponsored under age grime nights. Maybe times have changed? [/wishful thinking]

You know what kills me. is when you go to see some Grime stalwarts, some people I wanted to see in a while. Like P-Money. And you see them and you can barely hear the bars because of the brostep. Same went for NG last time I saw them.  I'M SO ANGRY!

The barrister who's dealing with a legal dispute for me at the moment is, I'm pretty sure, an employment specialist. Let me know if you'd like his contact details. His work for me to date (in a completely unrelated area) has been fantastic.

That's exactly what I'm looking for Steve, can you email details (or pm them here) to pete [at] soulmotive.co.uk

Thanks man.

It appears I need to contest a 'restraint of trade' to go and work for a competitive company, does anyone know of, or used and would recommend an employment specialised lawyer?

Bought a 3D monitor over the holidays.

Skyrim, Deus Ex 3, Crysis/Warhead, Civ 5 and Battlefield 3 (SP) all look great. Honourable mention to Arkham Asylum for looking spot on, but Metro 2033 takes the biscuit, it looks fucking amazing.

Can't gun properly in BF3 MP in 3d though, but 120hz monitor in 2D is a definite improvement!

Yeah the karkand maps are deep. Haha, I can imagine you leaping up from the couch, frantically grabbing for your phone to take a pic of that score!  Laughing Slayer
