Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Warhawk looks fun, but my internet connection is so unstable I don't know if I'll get it. It'll be going blazing fast, then all of a sudden its slower than 56k.

    Warhawk is Warhawk

    $60 for the Blu-ray version, comes with a BT headset (Jabra).

    Or $40 for the PSN download version.

    are you using a wireless network

    Wireless ISP to a wireless router, wirelessly to the PS3.

    Yah it's kind of unstable.

    Also whenever the PS3 logs on to the PS Network it causes my AIM to disconnect.

    I'm using about 25 feet of cat6, 100base, to my Linksys router. Works great. I have the 20gb so no wi-fi, not like I'd use it anyway. Wired is sooo much better for games.

    Also using WMP11 media sharing to share music, videos, etc... from 2 different PCs in the house.

    My PSN ID is "Walk2k" but my friends list is almost full (f'ing 50 limit) so don't expect a lot of adds unless you play Rainbow 6 Vegas or Warhawk.

    I'd probably need around 30-40 feet of ethernet cable to get from my router to my PS3 plus I'd have to drill a couple of holes in the cieling. I might just do that since it is slightly faster and more stable than wireless.

    Yeah when I moved into my new house I first planned to put the PC upstairs in the spare bedroom, and I would have to drill holes for the ethernet, etc... but then I was like "wtf I don't wanna go upstairs to use the computer" so I put it in the living room. Bonus is I can watch TV while on the computer.

    Well the PS3 and the router are on the same floor, but there's a hallway and a couple of walls seperating them, so the cable would have to go up and over, down into my closet, snake around the room, to the PS3.

    Well, you can run that with cat6, which is cheap and good to 200 feet or so?

    Or another idea is, if there is a phone plug and/or cable tv (if you use DSL/cable for internet) in the room where the PS3 is, put the router there, and use wireless for the PC instead.

    Dudes I read the FAQ and I'm totally picking up warhawk.

    Also I am terrible at setting up networks and was having enough trouble doing so with a hardline that I gave up and went back to wireless.

    When MGS4 comes out I am likely going to have to get one. Hopefully at Christmas there will be another price drop. Then it will be relatively painless.

    I watched the shaky cam video that was released before the direct feed one. it had a small resolution and terrible picture quality. I did not see any boobs anywhere

    I still hate buying large single player games on steam. its not like Im saving any money. its like they save a bunch of money and pass the savings onto not me. lame

    But you don't have to go to a store, so that's nice.

    More importantly, the low-cost delivery may not pass savings to you, but it may enable more indie developers to get games out there, which may greatly improve the pool of games that you can play.

    I don't know, the bigger games are getting and with my connection not getting any faster, it'll get to the point where I might as well go to the store.

    and I have no problem with it being great for indie gamers. thats totally cool. I mean, I haven't played any indie games besides free mods for games, but plenty of other people seem to like them.

    its just like, at least charge 5 dollars less maybe, you huge money hungry corporations you?

    bloody fucking hell I have that classic bug where it fucks with my desktop's gamma after quitting a game.

    what the hell is wrong with nvidia... every card and every driver of their's that I've used in the last 8-9 goddamn years gets this bug.... christ fix it already. have to f'ing reboot to fix it.. no amount of fucking with the color controls gets it back to normal...

    I think that might be the game's fault.

    I like NV way better than ATI, though. Because I do a lot of OpenGL programming, and ATI sucks for that.

    good thing it's a blu-ray player too

    yes I am talking about bioshock.. for the PC.

    and now my computer goes into a loop of BSODs. Thank you Nvidia "nTune"... made the mistake of installing that again, when I knew it fucked up my system HARD last time... then I had to totally re-install Windows to get it to work again... Thank god this time I just had to reboot in safe mode and do a sysytem restore roll back.

    woo I forgot how much FUN PC gaming is!

    blaurgh Bioshock is still BSODing. i guess it could be heat related, the last time I checked the GPU temp it was 75. but I've never had any problems before. until I updated my nvidia drivers. dammit, why did I even do that?? might have to rollll it back.. fuck.

    I totally have one of these, Network ID or whatever it's called is TxdoHawk. Hopefully Eye of Judgment gets a worldwide simultaneous release in October as planned, because right now my PS3 is helping me finish MGS3, and that's about it.
