14441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you playing this weekend? 07/07/06 on: July 07, 2006, 05:05:34 PM
DQVIII on the PS2...pretty good but something about it bothers me. Overall good so far.

DS: Who knows?  Probably a bit of: Mario Kart, Phoenix Wright, Kirby: Canvas Curse, NSMB, Brain Age and i might even fire up Advanced Wars.
14442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's that Time Again: GOTY So far? on: July 07, 2006, 12:45:28 PM
The year's MORE than half over. What's your GOTY so far?

Two categories:

GOTY for games released in 2006

GOTY for games played in 2006 regardless of year

GOTY 2006

I haven't played that many releases from 2006-

PS2: None played

DS: New Super Mario Bros: A nostalgic hoot.

XBOX: None Played


GOTY Played in 2006

PS2: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. Hands down one of the best devised stories I've ever played in a game. Brilliant from start to finish.

DS: Kirby: Canvas Curse. Though I haven't finished it yet, it's just an amazingly well executed implementation of the DS's touchscreen capabilities.

XBOX: Panzer Dragoon Orta- The oldest game in my collection not to be played was marvelous on an epic scale.

GOTY: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of liberty

Overall GOTY: [/b]

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
14443  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Osama pardonned on: July 04, 2006, 11:12:12 PM
Quote from: "unbreakable"
Wait and see.

And Bush doesn't need to pardon Osama.  There is nothing to forgive, he performed as expected.

Is anyone actually surprised that a family heading a war profiteer firm entered office preaching "war without end"?  Anyone supporting the Bushs and their cronies doesn't know (or want to know) much about them.

Anyone who opposed them politically "just hates Bush".
Anyone who breaks ranks and reveals the corruption "is just disgruntled and has an axe to grind".

You know things are bad when ex-Nixon people are saying GWB's administration is worse than Nixon.

Anyway, I'm going to stop, since this is just ranting.  If anyone wants some suggestions for info sources, you can start with "House of Bush, House of Saud", check out the Walsh report on Iran-Contra, then work your way out from there.

Phoenix Wright arrived on Friday and I have been having a blast with that.  I'm on what I guess is the final third of case 2.  Brilliant!

I've also started up DQ VIII on the PS2. So far so good.

Finally, I'm doing my brain training.  My brain age is my actual age so that show marked progress.  Don't know if I'm smart enough to get down to 20 though...

Meh. I always liked the bad guys, even if they were totally hopeless.

Cobra, The Decepticons, Shredder & Krang, and the list goes on.

They always had the cooler character designs and the better stuff.

So true. I always pulled for Cobra even though it was hopeless.  But for whatever reason- I think it's mostly due to Optimus Prime- I always rooted for the Autobots.
14453  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dragonlance Movie being made. Take cover. on: July 01, 2006, 11:46:26 PM
I loved the Dragons of Series. Its by far one of my favorite series of books. The development of the Chracters, I thought, was great. raistlin from that low level mage with no real purpose or power, and onward.

The rebirth of cleric within the world. The classic battle between good and evil. The connection that the characters make. Flint, Tanis, tass. the love story or lust story of Kit, and Tanis.

I think there is a lot here, that prolly gets over looked. tanis fight with his own people not liking him being a halfbreed, and the humans not liking him for being a half breed. So where does he fit?

You, sir, are making me pine for them again...stoppit!

I remember the movie ads. They counted down from like 5 days out.

Then after the movie came out the ad had this gem: 'So intense you have to see it twice to take it all in.'

My parents let me stay home from school to see it when it opened.

14455  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dragonlance Movie being made. Take cover. on: July 01, 2006, 12:03:26 AM
Well naturally in retrospect it's derivative of Tolkein. But so is D&D.  So is harry potter. So is just about anything set in that type of fantasy.

But to 13 year old kid who'd never heard of Tolkein it was gold. Pure gold.

As I said, I wouldn't pick it up again today (while I would love to invest the time in re-reading LOTR series) but I still have those books and probably always will.

I still read through them every couple years.  Sure, they're juvenille, but it's still a damn good story.

I was a lot more optimistic about this until I checked out the animation company's website..   Their style is much more Rugrats than Larry Elmore.  frown  I guess it could still be good, but I won't hold my breath.

If they did it in the old D&D cartoon animation style that would be hot....and of course they'd need to somehow work in a cameo of Venger!

First: I believe WheelJack created them.

Second: I always thought the dinobots were overrated, but still considered them helluva good.

Third: Grimlock had teh best line ever. To Megatron, quoth he: You stupid and you ugly too!

Fourth: That test is nice, but someone said there'd be an obligatory shot of a person being surprised by a car transforming and I'll be there it is!

Can't remember that Autobots name though.  Didn't care for him. He was too pretty.

<wakes up>

I got into the dragonlance books in 7th grade. Scott Harned was reading the first book and I read the back.  He moved onto the second and I began the first.  I read the first book in 7 days- i think it was 500 pages and then left Scott in the dust.  I blazed through a bunch more and IIRC, my favorite was the Legend of Huma.

Tried to pick them up again a few years ago, but the writing came off as so juvenile and uninspired. Still- I have the fondest memories of reading those series.

14462  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Switches in Kirby: Canvas Curse? on: June 29, 2006, 12:05:52 AM
I've just completed the 2nd world and through the course of the adventure so far, there have been two medals behind 'switchblocks'.

However, I've scoured the levels for them and they are nowhere to be found.

For example in the first world, there is a switchblock prominently on a relatively open level. yet I CANNOT find a switch anywhere.

Are they hidden? do i have to touch a special place on the screen to make them appear?

If I have a bunch of friends in my friend codes and then I select 'worldwide' or 'regional' will it automatically connect to them if they're on or must I go through 'friends' to connect to them?

Is preferential connecting given to friend codes in regional or worldwide?

Quote from: "Haavok1"
The scene where he is tearing the suit off next to the giant bell should be right before the suit leaves him and becomes the Venom/Eddie character.  I would guess that scene is somewhere from the late middle to the end of the movie.  I think Venom will be Spidey #4, we will just get a small glimpse of him to fuel the next movie.

I don't think McGuire or Dunst have signed on for 4....I thought I read somewhere that they were pretty much done with it after 3.  I also thought Raimi said he would rather move on to other projects...

I hope there's a 4....

Now, speaking as someone who didn't particularly care for Spider-Man 2 (and yes, I know this makes me a marked man but that scene on the runaway subway train when his face is exposed and everyone's all, "We won't tell anyone Spider-Man" made me want to scream)

I actually thought that scene was very touching.

As did I.  One of my favorite touches in the film.

One of the best scenes in the series thus far.

The new trailer is awesome, but I too will voice concern about the batmanesque too many villains for one film.

Howver, Raimi has done an amazing job and 2 was significantly better than 1...hopefully he'll do it again.

This will be the first movie I see in the theater in a LONG time.

Why must it be May of 2007!?

I decided to play some Table Tennis a little while ago and popped out my copy of Winning Eleven 9 and HOLY SHIT, what did my 360 DO to my copy of WE9!?

I remember there being a really strange 20-second pause before kickoff in my previous maybe the deed was done during that time.  I had played one race (all I need to know I hate the game) of a rented copy of Moto GP '06 and it froze on me.  So I blame this on fucking Moto GP '06.  

Please God let WE9 still work!


What a terrifying picture.

Band aids, a cast off plastic container, faux wood furniture, manflops in the lower right, weird shoe on the foot of the denimed leg, various cartridges scattered about, soiled mous pads and the corner of some cheap clock radio from which one could assume all types of britney spears pours forth.... <shudders>

Phoenix Wright has been re-released for about a month now. You can get it easily online from some of the smaller retailers for like 35 bucks. I know I saw a link at in their forums.

You're partially right. It was re-released, but it has been no easier to find.

Know what's amazing? I just watched an ep from season 4 where fry must defeat the brains in their supership.  It involves a plot where nibbler is actually a supersmart being.

In the replay of when fry is zapped to the future they show a shadow under the desk that's nibbler. I figured that they added it in as a plot device.

Turns out the shadow was always there...even in the original episode.  Amazing what planning they did. What foresight.  Brilliant!

So when shoudl we expect the DVD of the new season?
