OMG! It's such big news that it's all over the national networks. Oh wait. No it's not. It must be a conspiracy to let them overrun us! Or they have hidden broadcast antennae repeating 'sleep sleep sleep'.  If I put on some special glasses I can see who is Mexican and who is not!  Where the hell is Roddy Piper when we need him?!

We'd better nuke Mexico City with teh quickness!

Nuke MC? No, but I think this does go a long way towards proving just how much of a problem the southern border has become. What will it take, another attack? some deaths maybe? some rapes or murders of citizens? Tell me, what will it take before we all stand up, united as a nation, and say to our leaders that we need to do what it takes to ensure the security of our nations borders? Answer that if you can.

Mexican Sombrero Bombs.

I am a little surprised at some of the people who do have people ignoring them. I mean what did ATB ever do to anyone?

I laughed when I saw that.  And who would ignore me?  I am as pure as the driven snow!!!  :slywink:

Well, my Kobra theory holds up as he did not rebut.  If he had, Ceekay was my second guess because I know that he harbors a secret pain in his heart whenever he reads one of my posts because he realizes he's never going to be as charming, well liked, topical or intelligent as I am.

13403  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How Would You Improve the DS Lite? on: January 08, 2007, 03:02:01 AM
If you were on the design team and could improve the handheld from a hardware perspective, how would you do it?

1. Be able to get to the system menu from within a game: so you can check what time it is, adjust the brightness etc without having to back out... power down, power on, make the changes, insert the cartridge, power back on etc.

2. Be able to boot a game from the systems menu.  Basically, if you start the DS with no game in, you have to power it back down insert the cartridge and power back on

3. Onboard memory.  I'm fairly positive, despite its small stature, that they could fit some kind of onboard memory.  I'm not asking for much, but some would be nice.  This would allow you to save demos from DL stations and or maybe a song or too.

4. Move the headphone jack to the back. Not too troublesome, but it is in an awkward place

5. Have an option to bypass the safety warning on every boot up.  Good golly.  Please let me toggle it off.

13404  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Just Finished: The Greatest TBS of All Time on: January 08, 2007, 02:57:41 AM
Advanced Wars Dual Strike.  29 Missions.  Amazing AI. Incredible unit variety.  Superb balancing.  Neat extras. Brilliant skirmish scenarios. BRAVO!

Questions:

1. Any word on a sequel in development?
2. How well did it sell?  I guess that will answer #1 too.
3. Was there one before it? My guess is it would have been a GBA title. If so, worth getting?
4. Can anyone think of a TBS game that is as good or better- on any platform?  I could toss in Disciples 2 (my all time favorite PC game) and HOMMIII (really my first TBS game), but the balancing and excellent AI of AWDS tops them all in my book.
5. If you own a DS and like TBS and haven't played it...why are you so stupid and ugly?

D00D! I just noticed there's an ignore button.

I likes it and someone has already decided they don't like joy, happiness, love, fun, humor, cleverness or great content as they've ignored me.

My guess is Kobra...if he doesn't say otherwise I'll know it's him! Muhahaha!

If he does chime and say it wasn't him. I'll point out someone else until I go through every single user...then at last we'll have my revenge.

Quote from: EngineNo9 on January 06, 2007, 07:23:22 PM


The one thing that has me a little concerned, though, is the total openness of the world with seemingly no real story or missions to propel the player along.  I love screwing around and doing all sorts of crazy things in these games as much as the next guy (if not more), but I also like to be able to do a mission or two now and then to feel like I'm making progress.  I guess it might not be bad as long as they clearly show the player where the gang bosses and kingpins are and the details of their relationship like he explained in the interview. 

If it is completely free flowing as suggested above, they just lost a sale.  I want a cohesive progression. Not 100% sandbox.  Meh.

Remember how I complained that Calvin never joined?

Well now I'm complaining that he did.

He absolutely kicked madd butt tonight.

I think I had two good matches once he came on...saving my best for last despite the loss.  I was playing great until he came on- must be his blood pact with Satan. 

Then I  got moidered for about 1.25 hrs...then played well the last two matches.  icon_frown

Shoulda been in bed 1.5 hrs ago, but being slaughtered the way I was I just couldn't turn it off.

Oh and Pete was rustier than the titanic.

Forcebane's the man...but he must learn never to get into a sniper duel with Papa Smurf.  Tongue

Well I'm going to be hosting it and leave it set to public so that people jump in and out appropriately.

Calvin if you're on at 11 and want to play send me a message.

I'm planning on being in bed at 1 AM and no later.  I'm back at work next week and need to get my sleep.

And pete. Yes 10 SHARP.

Adieu!

I'm pretty sure that hitting any ending, including the worst one that you just got, is enough to unlock Julius mode.  You might want to give it a try before you sell, it lets you play as Julius, that girl, and Dracula's son.

I guess I never got into Castlevania enough to care.  Thanks for the info though.

I would guess it's because you're playing something else. I typically only invite bomb people who are playing other games if they're Calvin.   

Put in Gears of War now, sit in front of the TV and wait for my signal.  Then unleash hell.

If you're on Dep, you'll get the first invite.  (After Pete, Cthonic Horror, Forcebane, Austin, Ceekay, Calvin, Dimmona, Purge, mikeg, anyone else I've played with from GT, guys I know on other forums, guys I know who don't have GoW, and guys I know who don't have 360s.)

13421  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Unexpectedly Liking 360 Achievements on: January 04, 2007, 02:41:00 PM
I don't know if it's the caliber of games that I've purchased so far for the 360 (Dead Rising <my GOTY> and Gears of War), but the achievements have been rather intriguing.

I've played through Dead Rising 3 times (and will probably go through a fourth time in the future) to see things that I missed the first time through but also to get some additional achievements.  There are a couple more that I still want to get (54k kills I'm looking at you) but I don't know if it's because of the achievement itself (I don't really care about the points) or because I love the game so much.

Ditto Gears of War...though that's more of getting an achievement thing than seeing new content. I mean why else play through the game on Insane? Cause it's fun?  I don't think so.

My score is now north of 1100 which really doesn't matter to me...but achivements do, as others have said, add additional life to games and act as a neat little encourager to try something I wouldn't have otherwise attempted (knock over 30 zombies with a parasol? neat!)
13422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Post your backlog!!! on: January 04, 2007, 02:26:51 PM
As a former backlog junkie, I'm pleased to report my new and improved backlog:

Xbox:
-empty-

console retired and sold

Xbox 360:
Battle for Middle Earth II (on 7th Good campaign mission- it has gotten better- but man, the controls..)
Call of Duty 2 (two more campaigns and I'm done with this one-up and down overall quite solid)

DS:
Meteos
Metroid Prime: Hunters
Trauma Center: Under the Knife
Phoenix Wright: Justice for All (2nd Case)
Hotel Dusk (just begun)

PS2
God of War
Chrono Cross
Resident Evil 4
Metal Gear Subsistence
Dragon Warrior VIII (doubt I'll ever finish; close to retirement)
Killer 7 (almost done!)

I consider a game on the backlog if I own it and it's not 'completed' (ie. played through and or retired/sold without completion)

Or am I missing something?  <late game spoilars ahead>

So I climbed the long tier of steps and get to the battle with the flame guy again.  At the time the game said I had cleared about 72% of the game.

So I wax this guy first try and figure ok. new ability to open new areas just like before.... Then some dude runs in and says you did it.  My guy asks where's Celia? Dood says we're tracking her.  They then run outside and my dood says I don't feel well. Other dood says we'll have you checked out.  Roll Credits.

WHA?


Are there other story elements in other areas of the castle? Does it explain where the main bad guy went or is this is it?  Did I not do something right to get the 1942

'congrat-
ulations'

SUCK ENDING!?

Are there other endings?

I'm now up to 70% on the achievements in Dead Rising...so I'm going to be setting it aside until there's another lull.

Also finished EBA on the DS. What a masterpiece of a game.  Now onto the more difficult level.

Also got in some Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow....it's good but I don't know that I'll get the sequel any time soon.  I'm 65% of the way through it and ready to be done.

As for falling down on the job, Ceekay, it's called increasing demand and not diluting the brand.

My other hit thread: Weekend Playlist (which I stole from Whiteboyskim) is still going strong in the reply category. However, recap was falling behind.  I was gonna go one more week, but you've proven there's still a demand for it...I'll gladly take back my IP and fire it up again next week.

13430  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's May 2007: What's your most anticipated game? on: January 01, 2007, 06:04:10 PM
For 360:  I'm leaning towards John Woo's Stranglehold.  I need a Max Paynish fix.  Also Mass Effect looks good but I'm not 100% sold on it. Crackdown looks fun but I'm very skeptical.

DS:  Phoenix Wright II hands down.  DragonQuest 9 (I don't know if it's a 2007 release) is up on the list even though I'm probably not going to finish 8 (100 hours?)  But man a great handheld RPG would be awesome.

Note:  Showing your license and all other ID doesn't matter, even though we shop at Target a lot and have never returned anything there... ever.

If you put it on a credit card they can search it based on the CC. If you paid cash...well...

I agree.  From the box it doesn't look good at all.  Yet everyone is raving about it.  I wish Blockbuster rented DS games.

Have faith! It is a stupendous game.  Super fun and funny.
