I heard (and personally experienced about two hours of it) that Stalker was so ridiculously difficult even on the easiest setting that it wasn't even any fun. From my two hours of experience with the game, I must say that I agree. If you are excellent at first person shooters, you mught be able to e...

I just replayed through the entire Half-Life 1 series over the span of three days. I beat Blue Shift this morning. I love this series :D
Now excuse me while I go play through Half-Life 2 for the sixth time :wink:

No Garry's Mod 9 games in the gm_construct level? :( :P OMG YEAH! And we could make a GIANT saudering gun! Yeah, and then slap some thrusters and wheels on it and drive around in our kickbutt new soldermobile! :D But for some reason it won't let me connect to any public servers, saying that my vers...

Viva Piniata went to the DS and it was made by Rare which is owned by MS. I think that MS will make money anywhere that they can, and everybody knows that software sales are more profitable than hardware because there is virtually no overhead other than development costs.

That has been going forever, but you end up losing because ATI sucks. I know, the greatest part about it is that I don't even use that ATI graphics card for playing the game. I play it only on my Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT powered desktop. You don't have to use the ATI card to play it, which is what ma...

I just got Half-Life 2 Deathmatch for free through Steam's ATI promotional and I thought we should have some Benheck.com Deathmatches. I just thought I would let everyone know that Steam has a promotion going on right now for everyone who has an ATI graphics card. You can get a free copy of Half-Lif...

I don't know, my first soldering project was my PSoneP, it forced me to be careful, and I think I am better at soldering than I might have been had I not started with a challenging project. I recommend starting with something like that. Something that has some value, so that you will be forced to be...

Last year when my highschool bought new wireless labs, I found all the old iBooks in cardboard boxes buy the dumpster. I loaded about 30 iBooks into my truck and only about 15 of them worked.

Nonsense, he could easily extend the ribbon cable if he was dedicated enough. Ben has done it on some of his portables so I don't see why benol couldn't do it with enough time and care.
