I've got a question for all muh PC homefries out there (yea that was lame).
I recently spotted GRAW for PC for $10 dollars at Wal-Mart. I looked at the specifications on the back and it said the required OS was "Windows XP (only)". Now I have checked several games in the past month or so and I've found a few others that are the same way (Devil May Cry 3, Rainbow 6:Vegas).
Probably a stupid question, but it has been bugging me..
Could I run those games on Vista, or would I have to make a separate partition for XP?
To start off..I know I never blog. I'm usually reading all of the posts here at Destructoid and on occasion comment and leave my 2 cents (sometimes 4 cents..sometimes a dollar).
But lately I've been bothered to write this blog so I can get my hatred, yes hatred, out of my mind. Why do I get so angry?
The countless servers I go into when I play a match of COD4 (on the PC) have rules on "No Cursing". I understand rules like "No Nade Spamming", "No Griefing", or "No Hacking"..but no cursing? Give me a break! If I go into a server I expect there to be at least some minimal cursing. I've questioned admins who have the rule about it and so far the only answer I've ever dragged out of them was "there are children playing".
You're sitting there..shooting down Marines, SAS, or OpFor..and you're telling me that we can't curse because the children are playing? Blood and bullets..but no words? One response I got from admin was an insta-kick. He "didn't appreciate me questioning his authority"...over one server space on the internet...
So I haven't gotton a straightforward logical answer from ANYONE yet on why I can't even burst out a "SHIT!". I mean..for God's sake the characters curse in the single player.
Well..I said I've been wanting to write this for awhile...the tip of the iceburg was when I went into a server and nearly got kicked (I left before it could happen) for saying "bull".
Thank you Ignorant Peoples of the Internet for causing me so much damn grief (oh wait..I can't say that because of the children).
Please don't fuck it up Sony. I have yet to buy your precious PS3..but if I hear good things about this when it releases...I might just buy this. Here's a list of ways to not fuck up the franchise and to make it better than it ever has been.
Don't make the M203 attachment a standard.
This damned grenade launcher wreaks havoc on everyone on the battlefield. It is often when a newb comes into the room and starts an M203 massacre..killing many teammates and usually only racking up a grand total of 1 enemy kill. It is also often when a teamkiller (just for shits and giggles) jumps in a ranked room and uses the 203 on everyone in the spawn..what sucks ass is when it happens during a 22 round tie game. I've had matches last for hours and a teamkiller come in and lose it for us.
Don't make bushes look like cardboard cutouts.
THIS IS TEH N3XXT G3N! Don't make bushes look like I could push them over with one finger..or perhaps they'll fall over when I land in the bushes to hide from an enemy..extremely tacky.
Make a new ranking system.
The ranking system in Socom 3...to say the least..sucks horse balls. Why even bother trying to get a higher rank now? I don't even know how to get/lose points toward my rank! It's about as complicated as my last calculus class..and honestly..who in their right mind likes calculus?
Keep the weight system
The weight system is by far the smartest thing Zipper did for Socom 3. I found it hard to believe you could run really fast when you are weighed down by the biggest sniper rifle in the game plus RPG and grenades in Socom 2.
Bring back bloodcheck
It's a lot easier to tell who the fuck is cheating with blood. Just for that reason only.
It's kinda funny when you put an RPG into a vehicle and you don't see shit for damage..much less a wall.
This rocks because you can possibly create a certain character for certain maps..I might not have to use a ghillie suit anymore! Plus..it's just badass. Maybe you could create a version of Osama Bin-Laden to use on a map....anyways..
Bring back the classic maps and make newer ones that aren't shitty like Storm Front
Everyone on Socom is talking about the updated Crossroads..it looks badass..please do it for all those maps we love..like Desert Glory..and update ones like Tidal Fury, Anchorage, and Citadel just to name a few. But please us with new badass maps too.
DLC Please and lots of it this time
It'd be nice to get..oh..new maps maybe for some good times. Maybe some new weapons? Especially since Map Packs are scarce now. And the F90 pwnage isn't ending today.
That's all I can think of right now. If any Socom vets wish to put in their 2 cents..I'd love to see some opinion..especially since I probably missed something.
