*takes a deep breath....*

Tony Hawk's Project 8 for Xbox 360
Tony Hawk's Project 8 for Xbox
Tony Hawk's Project 8 for Xbox PS2
Call of Duty 3 for Xbox 360
Guitar Hero II for PS2
NWN2 for PC
Thrillville for PS2

All of which I'm reviewing in the short term.  The first 5 hitting on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on embargo.


Seeing a list like that makes me glad I don't run or work for a gaming website.  The same title on three platforms?  I'm guessing you are going to log at least 2 to 3 hrs per platform.  eek  Plus all that other stuff? Man, sounds like work to me.

So...if anyone's interested, I called this afternoon and gave me the tracking number of the box that went out.  UPS says it should be here by next week.  Now I don't know what to do.  I should send my 360 in for repairs and hope for the best and use the time without it to play PS2 games.  But my birthday is next week and I haven't had a new game in forever.

Well, I'd take the first option and work on the backlog...but mine is currently 23 games...so that's why I'm leaning that way.  And if it has been forever already a couple more weeks shouldn't be unbearable...

If you just *can't* wait, well...

The unexpected arrival of a 360 has significantly reduced my cash stream so I won't be going all in on the Wii come launch day.

That plus the PS2 library + my DSL = Not enough time for another platform.

So...even though I'm truly intrigued by it, I'll be on the sidelines for the indefinite future.

Sigh. My trip has been unexpectedly extended...thusly, my only outlet will be DS which I haven't touched at all this week.  I SO miss Dead Rising, but won't be able to play 360 until Thursday at the earliest. That will make....more than 2 weeks since I last played any console at all.

So, but, yet, hopefully, I'll get some DS time in the coming days.

Battles of Prince of Persia is on my hitlist.

The attachment you place on sex is a bit much me thinks.  Sex or insanity are preposterous when considered the only opposite poles.

I think you're a sex addict.  Replace sex with heroin and you can clearly see the correlation I'm drawing.  You're an addict without the fix. 

That's the crux of the problem and it manifests itself in frustration and as we prefer our feelings not to be devoid of meaning, that frustration for your must have a conclusion and you're 'shrink' and you seem to think that that end point is suicide or psychosis.  That doesn't mean, however, that that's where it has to go.

Thanks for the offer Graham but after looking at my finances I'm going to have to wait for a while. When I want to use Live I'll just have to hook it up to my computer monitor for the time being.

docD

You will probably want to hook it up to your network and monitor to power it up at least once and download the updates that have been made available.  I personally just run CAT5 cable to my 360, but I live alone so there's nobody to tell me it's in the way or looks bad.  icon_smile

I could let DocD sublet Purge from me and he can tell you how to run Cat5 through the walls!  Huzzah for purge!  Huzzah for wired Live access

So I have a question about GOW coop.  According to a preview I read it sounds like a hoot...I'm guessing that the lads here will be up for some over live- and I'm planning to activate my free 1 month in early november to join the fracas.

That said, I've never done any multi except for some Doom2 way back in the day.  What's the expectation for us to battle? I know I'll be the weak link on a team...so will anyone play with me....please?  :icon_sad:

It's a marathon weekend for me too but of an entirely different sort. My Fair Lady was bid adieu not half an hour ago, I called in sick today, and have until Sunday afternoon when she returns all to myself. PARTY!!!! Going downstairs now to pound out another member of my backlog, then I may see if I can't knock out another one or possibly even two this weekend. The assault upon the backlog continues...

I'll trade you my marathon for yours...  icon_biggrin

This is marathon weekend eek for me so not much gaming at all.  I'll be traveling too for most of next week so my only gaming outlet will be the DS.

Hopefully I can wrap up BPOP this weekend and maybe get some time in with some other portable titles.

I guess those seeking a better life will now have to carry shovels.

The only down side to using the play and charge kit while the 360 is powered off is that the fan still runs and is loud. It's very distracting when I'm trying to watch TV or do something else while in the same room. I don't know if I have a 360 with a FAN OF DOOM or not, but this alone steered me to the charger.

Ohh! From the Peanut Gallery.  Purge is knocked silly. Who knew that this would turn into the most dramatic thread in GT history!?

You don't need your 360 on to charge using play-n-charge kit either.

Step 1: plug "tether" into controller and into 360 while 360 is on, or turn it on if it was off.
Step 2: turn off 360 by using the power button on the system itself. (tap once)
Step 3: look at your tether connection. The red charge light should still be on even though the system and controllers are off.

It will continue to charge until it's full, and then turn that function off.

PWNED IKE. PWNED!

I just finished case 6 and have to say that I'm thoroughly enjoying this game.

I've had to replay a few sections as I've cut a few things a bit too tight, but otherwise I'm riveted.

Good story. Great action. Neat subplots.  It's easily back in A territory now.

FYI, the charger for the play'n'charge is a standard USB connection.  You can plug it into your computator and recharge it that way.  I turn off my 360 when I'm not using it, but I almost never turn off my PC.

Take that purge. Take it and like it!  er.

Is that an answer to a question I didn't ask?
confused

No, I was correcting statements above, and then indicated best practice (as you WILL get tired of AA's... trust me.) The play-n-charge kit IS worth the coin.

After 9 months with the play'n'charge deal, I switched to the quick charge kit and an extra battery. My battery no longer holding a charge also helped me make the switch. I like it better this way, never tethered!

If I were to do one or the other, the quick charge kit would be the way i go. I'm going to see how long regular batteries last and then decide...

ATB,

Regarding your optical cable keeping on coming out....ummmm....speaking from experience which I blame on late night assembly (sometime around 2:30 am).....not that you would ever do anything like this.....but look at the end of the optical cable.  There is a little plastic condom like cover over the ends of these that must be removed first before you insert.  The optical cable will then snap into place.  And yes, the optical cable will still work with the clear plastic cover over it.

- shaggy

Thanks Shaggy, but that's definitely not it.  It's that the place where the cable fits in is just not machined very precisely.
