I was going to play until I got my Burnout License tonight but I ended up stopping with 4 more events to go. I wasted a lot of time finding gates and billboards to smash and Super Jumps to complete.

I did get my Burnout Paradise license last night. Now I have 110 more events to go before I get my Burnout Elite license.

Ooh! Scary! Scary! Don't we look mean? You can't see me! But I can see you!
I finally got my Class A.

I painted my Tank-like Van with flames--pink.

I've been playing Hellgate: London on Wintendo.

It's Diablo. In 3D. In the FUTURE. Haha, it's pretty damn cool.

Classes that use guns can go into a first-person mode, kinda giving it a Doom flavor too. But like Diablo (and unlike most other online games)... it's about the pace. The first levels are to get you used to it, but towards the end its several dozen enemies on screen at any time. (One of the challenge areas I went into had some 200+ zombies in a single room). There's even an achievement for killing 50 demons in 30 seconds. Stuff you just never see in the WoW/Everquest clones.

Wish thee was a bit more variety to the environments... some are pretty cool, just wish there was more. They are doing some of that by releasing mini "expansion-packs" for people that choose to subscribe. (Much like Diablo, it's free to play online, however, you can get extras for a $10/mo. fee)

Common online game things: Levels are randomized like Diablo. The whole game is soloable, but like Diablo, monsters get more difficult if you play with a team. 5 player max team I think, no raids or anything, each zone is considered "instanced." Loot is increased with teams instead of being divided. Whatever loot you see is not visible to other team members (unlike Diablo)... so no competition for loot. Loot is not soulbound, and can be traded. Highly customizable through upgrades like jewels in Diablo, as well as a system for taking low level gear and upgrading the same items to become higher level gear. Trading is not through an auction house, but individual like Diablo.

Bit of a sample of a low level guy found on YouTube:

Anyways, it's fun. I highly recommend it.

so how much better at 3d games would a 24-inch imac (aluminium), in XP via boot camp, be better than my GMA 950 macbook? and would the imac be enough for games like bioshock? sure nothing's enough for, say, crysis, but i'd be happy trying some one- or three-year-old pc games. and can't afford a mac pro w/ an nvidia 8800, which is what i'd really go for if i could.

What a journey.
the 24" previous gen with the 7600? card was ranked one of the best. Not sure how it compares to the current crop.

What a journey.

Except there were problems with the graphics driver to start with. Crash city. I've not tried booting into my XP partition since I upgraded the driver.

Smash Bros for Wii.

Great game, shame they didn't do anything with the motion sensors, but the risk of hitting someone would probably be far too high.

EvE Trinity's high-res graphics have made it to their Mac client.

Already played EVE enough to get bored.

Heh.

Back to Rock Band or some other stuff...
