    Danmaku Doom demo

    Never thought I'd see bullet hell doom. But it's appropriate! D:
  2. Ahhh I love this sort of question! I banged out a definition of it awhile back (years ago) that I still think works to a degree. "Love is a bond that draws people together (in various ways)" I'm not arrogant enough to think that is a universal definition (or description) for "love" of course. For the time being I'm pretty happy with it, though. :) As for better to have never loved? Nah, it's a good thing to experience, I think, at least once. An aside: Man cannot survive without woman. This is a fact. So, help man survive! Get a good woman. :) What? You don't need a woman to be happy? Man will survive without your individual contribution? Excellent! I wish you contentment in your path!
  3. Really nice video! Thanks for posting this! I find it inspirational, and makes me hopeful I can build something of my own for cheap, too. Been planning on building a new one for awhile, now. I doubt that $300 will cover the cost of buying a new monitor, though. All my crts are dying on me. :( The car argument is kind of out of place, and you probably don't give a shit about that! However, I see where you're coming from. Got to have the time and inclination (two very important things) in the first place to do something like build a PC from scratch. Me? I love doing this kind of stuff. Not hard to make time for things you enjoy doing. ;) Doesn't seem like you're interested at all in building a pc. Do you think you ever would be, given the time?
  4. Original Thread

    I've been told I should come here with this. Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. Hardly visit these forums, but I do find them to be valuable.

    Anyways, I am currently formulating plans for building EDIII (a new computer). I haven't built a computer for five years and my choices in parts now, compared to then, are mind boggling and somewhat overwhelming. It looks like I can build a computer that's at least twice as fast for about half the price of what I built this one. I want to build a new one because I am starting to feel the pull of newer games, but this computer (EDII) has no chance of running them.

    As for budget? I'm not looking to spend more than $400-$500. I know I want to get 4gb ram, and I know I want at least a 3ghz clockspeed processor.

    I need your guys' help! You can help me by answering these questions:

    Are there products (specific brands/makers) I should stay away from? For instance, Nvidia vs Ati, Intel vs AMD, etc.

    Are there products (specific brands/makers) that I should definitely go for?

    How important is it to get a high memory video card? How much is enough when it comes to video cards? How important is clock speed on video cards?

    I will be searching out advice from elsewhere on the web, but I figured I'd ask here, first.

    Anything else you guys can think of to add would be great.

      Well, he could always make a triple- or quad-boot Hackintosh ;-)

      OSX is worth using at least once to experience some convenient features like e.g. DMG disk images and the user interface. But for games and multimedia for the masses...PCs still rule.

      Good job, malaka. Keep it up. Way to ruin a thread by jumping into some gratuitous trolling bandwagon. I've had my share of pointless and unprovoked flamewars, but this one gets the cake.

      And with his budget, he can afford a used G5, at most :-p

      Who are you calling a malaka, paneleiro? :) Let a guy throw a joke.

      Anyway, seems like AMD takes the crown for the budget market. I'm surprised.

      Well, there have been a lot of malakies said in this thread.

    So you think you're fast?

    Forgive me for resurrecting an almost certainly dead topic, but I wanted to put my measly two cents in, too. SpeakEasy.net says: 0.79 mbps download 0.73 mbps upload Ping: 98 ms 173 mi I thought mine was bad, but mine certainly isn't the worst on here.

    Claustrophobia 1024 -- Fixed version released!

    Seemed very playable, even in its present state. I really loved some of the tight quarter 1on1 and 2on1 battles, like with the Knight and Baron. But perhaps that's why it's called "Claustrophobia" ? I'm of the "kill all monsters before completing map" persuasion, so it pained me in some parts to leave some monsters behind simply because I didn't have enough ammo to kill them all. I was unable to complete it without cheating. I feel so dirty. After dying at that part with the demon with the nice ass *wink wink* about 10 times I had to give up and cheat. Maybe put something more to hide behind? And, as always, put a chainsawwww somewhere in there, dammit!... j/k
