I sent Yann a PM inviting him over for dinner and drinks.

Stupid spambots, I feel so foolish now!

Gah!  He's actually engaged to my sister.  She'll be so disappointed...

everyone who walked away from this with a "I tried. I didn't get one," has the right attitude.

He's obviously talking about Ceekay's photoshopping skills.  I mean don't we all wish we could take our own pictures, slap on a pink bandana and then proudly trot it around as a 'fictionalization' of what we look like? I mean, doth the lady protest too much or what?

Yeah. So stupid you had "FIVE PEOPLE" trying to get you a 360 on the cheap.  Roll Eyes

If you'd got one you'd be singing Amazon's praises right now, telling us all how impressive you are that if we'd all just planned properly we could've had one too. But, instead, you missed out on amazing deal and now your penny-pinching self must decry it as ill-advised from the get go. Save it for people who don't know your M.O.

Hmmm.  You've actually summed up the situation spot on.  Now, if you could do the reverse and praise me (who failed to get one but responded with a calm and level-headed No go for this schmoe.) with the same acumen, you could strike an awesome balance.

Not happening on the Xbox360 due to not allowing linux on the system...

What does this mean?  Hasn't the 360 been hacked?  If not is that because the 360 is super locked down software wise?

This just cemented Sony being #1 this generation.

I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not.

Can someone explain why this would be so (other than the ability to steal games)?

I know nothing about hacking systems or why someone (legitimate) would want to do it...

As it doesn't actually move, and you're not giving away 1000 $100.00 xbox core systems, I'm guessing it's a test because it's monty python?

If it's not MP, then I have no idea why this is a test and I fail.

What kills me is that unlike a brick and mortar store where a deal like this will draw in the crowds who will likely buy other stuff even if this was sold out, they basically just jacked up their traffic to sell these at a huge loss with very little added purchases by customers. 

Yeah, I was wondering about that too.

Yeah it asked me what's 10 plus 5, by the time it processed my answer, it said sold out.

Well if you guys were better at math and didn't have to waste time calling up the calculator, maybe you would have gotten it...

You have to think of Gears of War as a FPS with the camera moved back a little bit, not so much a third person action game.  Dead Rising's system was made for a third person melee/action game and worked incredibly poor for quickly shooting things, which is all you do in Gears.  

This advice, also given by Purge, has helped me tremendously.  I still have to say outloud the way I want to go on occasion, but the difficulty is fading.

I'd love to hear your impressions. I'm still working on this game and man has it left an impression.

So that everyone's holiday won't be ruined....I've played through the tutorial a couple times and it is starting to click. 

Question: is there a way to jump over cover obstacles without first 'engaging' the cover?

Perhaps I can learn the scheme over time, but I dont' have the time to dedicate to it at present. Perhaps after the holiday...

But man it's like learning to write with my left hand.

I'm right handed. That's why the analogy works.

If I recall correctly, halo let you invert both the x and y axisesesis(?).
13629  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOW Control question on: November 22, 2006, 03:54:18 PM
And off it goes. 

I'm so frustrated right now I don't even know what to say.
13630  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOW Control question on: November 22, 2006, 03:44:45 PM
No separate camera controls from the aiming/movement controls? What is this 1997?  icon_mad

Right now its a struggle to get through even the tutorial...when I want to move right I go left. When I want to look up I look down... mad

Same with the camera...if I invert the y to make the camera work the way I like it, the aiming is off.

For crying out loud, DR had independent camera/aiming...why not this 'halo killer'?

13631  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GOW: Lack of Control Support Ruins the Game!? on: November 22, 2006, 03:28:49 PM

I'm glad someone pointed out the discrepancy. MS was touting that they would definitely have an install base of 10M by the time the PS3 came out and that the first one to 10M wins.

When will be able to find out what the Wiis hardware sales numbers are?
13633  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist: Thanksgiving Edition on: November 22, 2006, 01:40:18 PM
For those of you not in the US of A, tomorrow marks Thanksgiving, a national holiday where we as Americans eat and eat and eat and eat (how is it different from every other day? Um...). It is also my personal favorite holiday. Lastly, it affords us a 4 day weekend consisting of what could be considered two holidays: Thanksgiving and Black Friday followed by the usual 2 day Saturday Sunday.

That said, I'm expecting the invasion of family to begin tonight (I'm really excited!), but as a result, the 360 shall be hidden from view.  Also, as we'll have guests sleeping in our tv room, console based gaming will be limited. So it looks like this weekend, while it could have been glorious (as I'm ready to break out Gears of War finally), most of my gaming will consist of:

Battles of Prince of Persia on the DS- Just four more missions!
Guitar Hero with the niece and nephews. Not II, though, as that's what we've purchased for the Nephews for Christmas...
Possibly some SSX Tricky on the ole XBOX.

Yeah, I dunno.  I thought King Kong was great, as was LOTR.

King Kong was unwatchable, imo.  I think I made it 45 minutes...wherever she's dancing for the monkey...that's when I pulled eject.

Hmmm...here's hoping MGS4 becomes a 360 title - I don't want to fork over the $$$ for the PS3 just for that game.  If the game does come out later, it'll sure be DAMN heard to not read impressions, get spoiled, etc. however.
I am fairly sure this rumor surfaced earlier-like 3 or 4 months ago-I think one of the XBox guys at MS let it slip-frankly I think if they can grease Konami's palms the right way it will make its way sooner than later. The 360 is definately going to have the lead in installed base when MGS4 comes out.

Though I've not played 3 yet, MGS is one of my favorite series ever...well through 2 slywink, and I hope that it does come to 360. That would be awesome.
