Hate... Valve... So... Much...

Why, why do you release a game that's written in a perfectly servicable and even remarkably robust engine, and then update the engine to require drivers that are less than 6 months old on some video cards and don't exist on the others.

And why does ATI have a support site that won't let you download drivers, as it randomly aborts to download from the server?

When I sleep, I look up and see head crabs sliding down the elevator shaft. Even if they were perfect angels with their release mechanisms, I could never forgive them for that. ;-)

Damn, man. If I knew that would be haunting you six years later I never would've made you play.

In other news, SE:V has been moved back up to Winter 2006!

Awesome! I just hope all these 3D changes actually add strategical and tactical nuance instead of just making things more complicated.

To hell with the 3D world -- have you seen the new Ship Design View?

It has potential, but I'm withholding judgment until I get my hands on a copy (via Steam).

If the idea of point-mounting components on a multiply-tiered ship excites you, I'm going to have to consider buying Kate some whips and leather.

Bah, you're just pissed that they're going to be rebalancing Race Creation.
