hmmm, Quake4 comes to mind. Half Life2:Aftermath. I can't think of anything good coming out in the near future besides COD2.

Valve dumped Vivendi, the expansion will be steam based only I believe. Valve states broadband recommended everywhere and I'm sure 90% of steam users have broadband so they probably dont care much :) 
DSL and Cable are cheaper than dialup even in my little rurual town out in the boonies. $14.95 for 1.5mb dsl, $19.95 for 3mb cable, and $21-$30 for 56k dialup.

when is stalker coming out?>?


Latest I saw was September 2. Would be nice if they made that but I haven't seen any STALKER gold messages out there yet.

STALKER uses its own engine btw (in an attempt to get back on topic).

There's a game in development called "Prey" which will be using the Doom3 engine. Also, "Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines" used the Half-Life 2 engine, but they didn't squeeze as much out of it as they could/should have.

I liked VtMB. At least they got the shadowing from multiple lightsources in Source right (didn't use the shortcuts that ValvE used for HL2 and CSS).

In what sense didn't they use the engine well enough in your opinion? In fact, I thought for what the game was, the Source engine was somewhat overkill for it but I liked the results anyway. Btw, if you find a copy of the game in a shop, just be informed that the developer of the game passed away (Troika) so there is no longer active support for the game. There were plenty of bugs in the release, some of them were addressed in patches (latest patch is 1.2). I played it from start to finish once with a single character, never got round to playing it again with another setup, but I enjoyed it enough to recommend it to RPG fans.

I pay $87 a month for 3.5mbs, extended basic cable, meaning I get music channels and some extra channels.

We have a local cable company that is bad-ass. They laid all fiber back in 97 through out our entire city.. long before most companies even thought about it. They ripped up everything.. 15 feet outside my dad's house is a fiber line.. they're just waiting to get fiber into homes now. It's crazy.. they spent millions to do this years ago and it's been paying off ever since.

You must be out in the middle of no where or in more of a rural countryside where internet demand isn't so demand.

no im in a pretty populated area, like i said theyre just retarted and dont know how to make money, and theyre marketing is stupid and says nothing about what their offering its like FASTER THAN WHAT WE HAD BEFORE 50X FASTER THAN DIAL UP YA WE ROCK THE C**K. BOOYA!

Don't get me wrong, I liked the game (VtMB) alot, I thought it captured the vampire "feel" perfectly, it's just the character animations weren't quite on par with HL2. (which you could say would be expected as they came out roughly the same time as each other and seeing as they both used the HL2 engine, one would expect HL2 to show off the engine more, if that makes any sense...)
August 4, 2005 7:35:40 AM

My guess is they had too many characters in the game so they couldn't use as detailed models as HL2 did, and probably ValvE kept some features for itself(which was your point).

Oops, that was old info. Latest I saw was that STALKER had been delayed till autumn 2006 (my September 2 date was actually referring to 2005). Seeing how Boiling Point turned out, it might even be a good thing, however the risk of outdated technology is increasing.

Also read somewhere else that STALKER may be out summer 2006 (which was more recent than the autumn statement), for sure it will not be released before april 2006 because it has not been included in any estimates for the end of THQ's book year (which ends with March).
