Really this is supposed to blow me away? I've seen games look about this good on my pc right now without it breaking a sweat.. I'm a bit disappointed.. though at least I know I'll be able to run "next gen" games no problem.

@jrlyon: Just to contrast your horrible experience with steam with my own great experience I thought id share my recent story. I just got a new computer, so EVERYTHING has changed, yet all I had to do to get my 200+ gigs of games working on my new computer was copy over the steam directory.. Afterwards every game I started either worked immediately or after updating a couple files.. contrast that with reinstalling 200+ gigs of games or even worse, re-downloading them. That's one of the many reasons why I love steam. I've only ever had maybe 2 issues with steam, Once it failed to update and I had to rename the Steam.new to steam.exe and it was fixed. I can't even remember the other issue it was so minor... I've been with steam since they forced us to switch over from WON.net for half-life 1, so I've been around :-)

I have so much love for Carmageddon.
I remember when i was like 15 or something and i got the demo for Carmadeggon, there was just 1 car you could drive and something like a 3 minute timer but otherwise a whole city level to mess around in.. well the whole game was pretty much built with plain text .ini files. The demo timer was something like "Demo timelimit: 300" i just deleted that line and suddenly had unlimited time in the demo.. so i changed the name of my car in the ini to an ai car and suddenly i was driving the other cars :P that ended up being a pretty damn full featured demo once i opened it up.. Anyway i went on to buy and love all the games, loved getting into the .ini files and modding to my hearts content as well. I'm hoping the new game will allow a little of that as well.. at the very least it better come out on pc :P whatever, still excited!

Thanks for this bit of news, this is the first I've heard of the game and I'm sold.
They'll have my $15

@BirdkeeperDan:

Good point, doing both is easy and will be a good way to learn the new system at the same time.
I have to admit I havn't signed up for the twitter account because I hate twitter but for nuts & bolts I'll consider making an exception just this once :P

Anything we can do to get people playing this forgotten gem a little more is a good thing but we should perhaps get it organised first so people don't show up, see no game nights, then get discouraged.

@BirdkeeperDan:

While I love the gb reference and think its not a bad system it is more confusing :P what i mean to say is.. I'm confused.. ;-)

It'll already be hard enough getting people together for these game nights we dont need to throw another wrench in the works.


If you all don't mind let's just use PST I think thats less confusing. For anyone not sure about their timezone http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/index.htm is a handy page to check. Or for anyone who wants help converting from one timezone to another without having to do the math themselves http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

Unless you guys all really really want swatch internet time, I'm willing to learn if i have to, although I still think more people know their timezones then swatch time.

Also, I'm going to look for a game in about an hour and a half from now (10:00pst)

@whistlebottom:

That mech is awesome. I wonder if it can turn ? :P
looks like they pretty much do what people did to make walkers in Gmod, use rockets and thrusters to move the legs.

Still, awesome..

I hope some of you guys are still playing in a week or two when my copy arrives.

I was totally gonna buy it for $20, but apparently over here in Canada it cost's an extra $20 to move all those bytes across the border.
$40 for a 2 year old game is less appealing though.

I managed to find it for $10 used on amazon, hopefully it'll be in working condition. So if all goes well I'll be joining the club.
