14401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best not-pressing-start video in a game? on: August 07, 2006, 01:53:58 PM
Whenever I get a new game I always let the game roll through the studio splashes and everything else in hopes that there's something going on.

I liked the sweeping cinematic for DQVIII...not necessarily pertinent to the story, but great shots of the landscape etc.

BC's non gaming forum is the best on the web IMO.  True there's no much activity, but it's hellah good.

I had no idea there was animosity between GT and OO members. Since when? Or is it just certain people?

Certainly no official animosity and really no unofficial animosity either.  After GG folded people went in different directions based on their personalities, preferences and who they liked talking with on message boards.

No biggie - just different strokes.  I posted at OO a lot in the past and haven't been there for several months.  I'll get back over there again I'm sure.


Yeah, knew all that, but your summary is appropos...perhaps the animosity is just with Dirt...which is wholly understandable slywink. I'm the same way re OO, though I'm pretty much done with that site for good.

Well, LE is a given, but what about the rest?

Or should we just lock this thread now?

You simply must keep us informed (if possible) about the work you're doing and where we can see it.

Then we can say 'I know the guy who did that!'

Well, the fams and I are set to take off for a 5 day road trip, so I'll be playing almost exclusively on the DS.  However, my friend does have a PS2 and has requested that I bring a certain Guitar based game.

So it looks like:

Before we leave:

DQVIII
Phoenix Wright
(about to finish case #4)


On the trip:

Guitar Hero
Phoenix Wright
Advance Wars
Mario Kart

Might try out Mario and Luigi, Partners in Time

Looks verrrrrry interesting.  

It will probably be a hoot overall, but I wonder if it will have legs.

Thoughts?
14411  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Would you rather battle... on: August 03, 2006, 06:24:31 PM
I would rather fight a werewolf.

I would rather lose to a vampire.

I would totally hit all the clubs, party all night long, become a legend of the night.

Why do I think of Vamp when I think of TML as a vampire?

Offshoot questions:

1. I remember reading the original Dracula, by Bram Stoker and being blown away by the guy's ability to narrate. What a helluva good book that was. Has anyone read it?

2. Does becoming a vampire automatically make you evil?  I mean besides the whole killing people and sucking their blood. Do you automatically become evil?  Or could you be a 'good vampire' and only eat criminals or something?  Also, if we were putting this into D&D terms, are vampires considered lawful evil or chaotic evil?

Whoa. so you wo uld recommend?!

I have data on 3 different HDs I need to consolidate, but have no access to a tower to plug them into.

So- I should be able to buy this, plug in the drives, then plug the USB into my laptop and copy data from the HDs to my laptop?

14417  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many consoles (same kind) have you been through? on: August 02, 2006, 05:04:54 PM
I had two 2600s- the original and the slim which i bought like 2 weeks before I met someone with a NES.

1 odessey...have no idea what happened to it

I want to say 2 NES'- one to replace one that wouldn't hold the cartridge down

SNES that I had for about a week and took back.

1 XBOX bought at the end of 2002

1 PS2 bought in March of this year

That's about it.

Edit: Sega Master System that was given to me

Sega Genesis.

Heath Ledger is the perfect choice for the 'you can kinda see it kinda can't' person to fill the role...just like TM as mentioned.

I'm excited to see what he and the director do with it.

I suppose I could give Dragon Quest another go.  I got killed in the first dungeon and lost interest.


I'm playing this right now. I died several several times in the first dungeon.

After that, the game really opens up. I'm about 23 hrs into it...It's simply exquisite.
14423  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 20 gayest video game characters on: August 01, 2006, 01:09:14 PM
It's weird. I'm not familiar with hardly any of those characters.

Peddlers in Shadow Hearts: Cov. Sure. Haven't gotten to that other guy though.

Zangief- yes, have played with and against him, don't agree though.

Not far enough in MGS:3 to reach the gay major.

Vamp. Yep. Fa lay ming, as homer would say.

And that's it.

I have not heard of anyone else on that list.

Tingle?  What Zelda game(s) was he in? I started but never got far in Ocarina...

Spent the bulk of my time on DragonQuest VIII. It's really starting to click now and I'm enjoying it immensely. My characters are 21 and 20 levels...good times.

Put away Animal crossing. Can't get into it. Will try again later.

Played some Mario Kart too.
14425  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DQVIII: Morrie's Place on: July 31, 2006, 12:59:20 PM
You all know it, the game is a hoot.

A question about Morrie's Place (spoilers about MP and main quest points).

He's given me the memos, but I believe I've already defeated 2 of the 3 monsters.

Does this mean that I can't complete this side quest or do they not appear in the game until you get the memos?

I ask the question cause in my exploring I discovered the moon door location prior to it being 'unlocked'...so I'm hoping that the same is true of these monsters.

Thanks.
14426  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why is the first Xbox still $180? on: July 31, 2006, 12:56:01 PM
I'm bitter at the way MS has abandoned the XBOX. Bitter.  It's a slap in the face, IMO.  I have a backlog of a bout 10 games still to be played on it and I will get to them, but between the DS and the PS2 it gets almost no attention now and it's partially because nothing is coming out for it.

As for the pricing, it's weird that they'd go up....stupid.  MS has given up on last gen while PS2 is still cranking.
14427  Gaming / Analog Gaming / No More E3?! on: July 31, 2006, 03:58:57 AM
From BC

Quoting from Gamespot

My xposted thoughts from BC:

well, i like e3 because all the fancy stuff is rolled out at the event and it's sort of a unifying event for all of video gaming.

however, I'm not shedding no tears and I hope that several smaller shows will provide more depth and impact both to the hobby overall and especially to mid to small devs.

Pretty much the only reason to buy the original Shadow Hearts, imo.

Honestly, it's probably the only reason to buy any of the Shadow Hearts games.  I just don't get how shoddy storytelling and dubious mechanics = gold medal in the minds of some people.

I'm late to the party on Kelly Clarkson. Loved her on AI back in the day but that was it.

I bought breakaway about a month ago.  It's a fabulous album from start to finish.

Fabulous!

Then I go and buy her debut- STINKBOMB.

But breakaway is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time.

GEYSER!


Spoiler for Hiden:


In the desert where you have to have the geysers knock the dude over?

If so, this perfectly ties into one of my problems with the game.  The puzzle element- determining how to best whip the colossi- is too simple.  I mentioned in my write up of it some time ago that the game should allow you to turn off the hints if you like...or give you a system for earning hints.  The geyser colossus was one of the easier ones to figure out---though not necessarily execute...

One of the brilliant ones is where you have to figure out that the guy needs to slam down on that concrete plate to shatter its armor.  That was amazing.

Others, I was just on the cusp of figuring out what to do and the voice tells me. Gah! Not enough  sense of discovery in the battles, imo

PSP lost to DS. PS3 is looking real bad compare to XBOX 360. So fanboys of those two products are now in hiding.smile


I was gonna say that Nintendo is so clearly the winnar of everything, everyone else has submitted.

Nintendo is the hobbits at the end of Return of the King. Everyone is bowing down before them in reverence...even those once divided by all the conflict.


In the book Sarumon enslaves the Hobbit race. The movie glazed over that.


Yes, but only temporarily until the heroic return! Don't you know that Mario successfully returned the triforce to Mt. Doom?  He overcame the dark hordes of port of a ports and saved Middle Gaming with his fresh take on how fun should be had!  Then he returned and kicked Sir Trite and Master Been-there-done-that, out of the village.
