    Intel 32nm Processor coming soon!

    Wow, that really does look monstrous.
  4. My position is that the community as a whole needs to move on from Westwood. Westwood was great, fantastic in-fact but they're old news. They're not coming back and EALA won't be able to recapture what Westwood did with the original C&C's - ever. EALA has a tremendous creative capacity for game development. But as far as C&C goes there are just so many *fans* that are so narrow-minded as to only see C&C as what it was and are basically after a port with upgraded graphics. If C&C is to move forward as a franchise EALA really needs to give two fingers to the community at least for a game or so and just do what they want, why don't we give EALA a chance to see what they can come up with? They know C&C, hell, they probably know it better than we do. Maybe if the community wasn't so anal about everything we might see EALA have it's own shot at developing it's own *Westwood "revolutionary rts"* who knows if it will work or not, but surely - if EA has a bit more free-reign maybe they might be able to come up with a much more original take on C&C that really isn't bad. I actually think this was part of the problem that caused C&C3's story to become "disastrous". The Devs had their idea of where they were going, all the community people butted in, higher-ranked staff told developers to reconsider and in the end it all got ****ed up. That's my opinion anyway

    Petro-Gamers dead?

    It's hardly his fault. It takes a lot of devotion to webmaster a successful fansite and if the games coming out aren't really that good then there's not a lot of motivation for you is there?

  11. While I never had any problems with it either - it's a good change. Thanks for pointing that out.

    D'ya Read Me?

    Parents are never slow to remind us that "back in their day" they had no computers or consoles to keep them busy so they read a lot of books. Now it's not really a super cool thing to do in most adolescent circles but I must say books and *intelligence* is "Coming back in again". At least here. I'm curious, do we have many readers of books on the forums here? And if so - what have you been reading lately, what type of styles do you like, who are your favourite authors? Let discussion reign! Personally I'm a big fan of crime fic. Especially(well...only) British ones. Couple of favourite authors are: John Grisham, Elizabeth George and Ian Rankin. I'm not a particularly broad reader and prefer to stay with my preferred authors and genre's but that's just me. Currently, i'm reading a book called 'Absolute Power' by a guy called Ian Wishart which is an 'unauthourized biography' of the now former New Zealand Prime Minister, Helen Clark. Incredibly well researched and very well written Ian Wishart goes into the real heart of many issues that the government has managed to sweep under the carpet over the past few years and exposes some of the corruption in our own public servants. I haven't finished it yet but highly recommend it for any kiwi that's slightly interested in politics!

  18. That Canada's revenge mod looks pretty funny :lol:
  19. *cleverly sidesteps the main issue* I will say this though: Maybe people (not me) generally just like the newer EA games? Sonic, you could make a custom badge thing with the year # but it'd end up at the botom of the profile text instead of at the top. *grabs tissues*

    Nice find. That's quite awesome. A sure sign of too much money and too much time.
