I assume you mean Crysis 1 now that they ported it to Xbox for download? Yep, great looking game. The 2nd one is awesome but I always wanted to experience the first.

yeah just got done with a round of it... it's not fuckin easy! but i like it. :D

still getting used to the controls. the recoil on the guns makes it hard to hit shit. Halo meets Black... i like the suit.

XBox FTW. Two things Microsoft didn't fuck up... that console and Excel.

No, Excel is still a pain in the ass.

Not sure what you mean, to be honest...my PS3 turns on completely in about 6 or 7 seconds, and it takes MAYBE 2 seconds for the icons to appear after quitting a game.
It's still too much time IMO to display a few icons, it's just like the system had to reload everytime ant then... What I like(d) with consoles is the fact of getting rid of an operating system...

anyway you're right, I'm just speaking of seconds :lol:


I played and finished Enslaved, and indeed there's a kind of uncharted fun in it, but finishing the game was a real pain in the **** to me... these repetitive quite identical boss fights, never ending robots fights with a completely DUMB camera system... a scenario that you never really get into, and a bullshit ending IMO... so disappointing.... I'm happy I just bought it for 15 euros, and sold it for 14 :lol:


UC3 UC3 UC3 UC3 UC3 UC3 UC3 UC3!!!!! (UC2 is THE game I keep on playing and still enjoying multiplayer deathmatches with my girl, just waiting for UC3 to arrive....)


cheers

I don't doubt it. But I wrote that after Ctrl-S'ing an edited sheet that was opened from Outlook and no dialogue popped up asking me where I wanted to save it, so I thought it was saved. It was not. Iirc I thought it brought up the save as dialogue when opened from Outlook. Wasted time checking for a temp version of the file, too.

Powerful, yes. Easy to fuck up and not notice (not from because of above, but also from sorting as another example), yes.

Sheeit, I'm happy with gmail in chrome. Before gmail Thunderbird WAS my main client for years!
I only use Outlook because I have to. At work, corporate setting. Where social and gaming sites are blocked, even embedded youtube videos...hell, internet got cut on ie8, so it's back to 6. Yet the ladies still manage to watch tons of videos and sites on celebrity gossip. Vimeo works, though.

Oh, I ended up scrapping Thunderbird because of file space, after seeing the ridiculous amount it took up, I figured, why not see why gmails getting so popular? Been happy with it since.

Excel, though, I'm not a hater; just a couple niggles with it that I'm sure more seasoned users would roll their eyes at.

Somehow I managed to derail the only Lounge thread on video games into a debate on spreadsheets. :x

Yes, shame on you! Must be a slow day on the forum. Fancy re-opening the midi vs audio debate?

The new release of Dead Rising 2...wasn't Dead Rising 2 released last year?
So is this supposed to be an expansion pack? Because it doesn't seem like they're advertising it as or saying it's an expansion pack. What the dilly yo?
