    so Blur beta codes have been dropping like candy

    who's gonna be playing?

    I will

    did you get the actual code yet? I put in the first code on the blur website, but haven't gotten anything back

    I figure they'll be sent out on the 8th
    Yup, they'll send it out.

    If it's anywhere near as tight as PGR4 was, I'm going to love it.

    I hooked my way up to the top of the tallest building I saw, set a remote mine on this giant satellite dish, jumped off the building, opened my parachute and set off the mine just in time to turn around and watch it explode before landing

    jeez

    JC2 is technically fun but I am constantly consciously fighting the controls.

    And the driving sucks.

    But explosions are fun.

    the things you can theoretically do are totally sweet

    but the game handles like you're driving a schoolbus by instructing one of the children while sitting in the back row

    it's just so awkward to do anything

    edit: I would have beaten Fari to the punch if I hadn't wasted so much time constructing that stupid simile

    he is the guy that knows what is up

    You know what would be great? Valve is going to all this trouble to get people pumped for Portal 2 now, when it's actually coming out in "Holiday 2010" (read: spring 2011).Once they confirm it, all the fans sit around moping "waah we have to wait a year." So after about a week of this, Gaben comes out and says "yeah I know you have to wait a while for Portal 2, but in the mean time here is Episode 3 RIGHT NOW. Heh." And then it goes up for download right after he says that.


    I CAN DREAM

    I'll admit that the controls are bullshit, especially in vehicles, and that it's unclear what you're even supposed to be doing.

    But when it all comes together, oh man

    I'm not quite sure why having the camera swing halfway around the fucking car when you make a turn would be a good idea.

    Having a 360 gamepad helps for the driving / aircraft control on PC.

    You just have to get used to quickly dropping the controller and going back to the keyboard / mouse when you jump out.

    Easy mode seems to be busting into a military camp and jacking one of the fixed chain guns. People die from one to two hits and buildings topple in seconds.

    Just to be safe I asked Knob.

    Way to disable the 30 minute timer for the Just Cause 2 demo-
    In order to properly freeze the timer (not quite the same value as the one tested earlier in this thread, mind you), do the following (CheatEngine is needed, google it):

    1) Start Just Cause 2, trigger the timer by jumping off the platform. Open the PDA by pressing F1 (or 'Back' if you're using an Xbox 360 controller) and check what the timer says. Memorize it, or write it down.

    2) Alt-tab out and start CheatEngine. In CheatEngine, browse the processes and select JustCause2.exe. Choose 'Unknown initial value' from the 'Scan type' drop-down list, '4 Bytes', and hit the 'First Scan' button.

    3) Go in-game again, un-pause and let some time go by.

    4) Again, open the PDA and check how many seconds have gone by. Alt-tab back to CheatEngine and search for a new value, this time a 'Value increased by...' (or, as listed by the program, 'Increased value by...'), and enter the appropriate value (the time in seconds that passed) in the 'Value:' box. Hit 'Next Scan'.

    5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you find the correct value, usually an address starting with '1A5'.

    6) When found, double-click it to add it to the box below. Freeze it and play for as long as you want.

    This works for me, I managed to play for quite some time (before I quit manually, that is ).

    Are you on XP or a video card that doesn't support DX10

    Those are the most obvious and least helpful causes

    What is this guy actually saying he appears to be very confused

    Is he under the impression that MW2 is somehow newer than a game that isn't actually out yet

    Man, don't argue with him, he is the 66th pro with a mac.

    You should just not argue with a pro with a mac, unless they are like, the millionth pro with a mac.

    so I finally got portal

    that wisecracking robot voice from the demo seems to have disappeared, though

    haven't heard it once and I replayed the tenth level (one of the ones that had robot voice during the demo) in the full version
