14683  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I'm Back Baby! on: September 09, 2005, 12:49:38 PM
After 2 years 9 months and 5 days, I have finally fired up a computer game.  What has drawn me back?

This thread:  This thread and its mention of Disciples 2 coming to the humble DS.

Since D2 was/is my favorite PC game of all time, I had to fire it up. Now I'm hooked all over again...and I've ordered Gold just to get all three expansions.

It's so good to be a complete gamer again...It's good to be home...

I forgot how good this game is...one...more...turn...

I never had a dreamcast and never played one.

The way everyone talks about it, sounds like I missed something...

Of course I was eyelid deep in computer gaming and couldn't have cared less then...
14685  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lamest game moment on: September 09, 2005, 12:39:38 PM
Mine would still have to be the end of 1942 for the NES.

I had battled through something like 50 levels and expected something grand to happen at the end.  This is what I got:

"Congrat-
ulations"


I just about busted the tv open with a sledgehammer.

Oh and in answer to your other question: Yes. Yes I do believe love can bloom on the battlefield.  Just ask Ryu Hayabusa.

Many of the runner-up designs were excellent. Check them out:

Ok ok. I might buy that one.  It's pretty cool  :oops:  Cool
14690  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's the Console Super Game of the Moment? on: September 06, 2005, 05:56:17 PM
What's the game that everyone is talking about right now or awaiting emminently?

Back in the days of PC gaming the boards would flutter with activity after a up to and until major release day and then everyone would buy it, play it and chat about it in a 5 page+ thread.

Is there anything like that in Consoleland right now or is it a different landscape...I'm out of the loop.


Of course this won't make me buy it now. Pay full price? No way, latin american male name!

14692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 Faceplates- You gonna buy any? on: September 06, 2005, 12:14:42 PM
In OXM this month, there's a brief article on some of the available faceplates that are going to be available for the new console.

The end of the article, in typical OXM bottom smooching fashion, states:  'Better start saving now- especially since you're going to want more than one of these babies!'

As for me, if I go next gen and end up with a 360, there's only one faceplace that even looks remotely interesting and it's the 'hot rod' one.  Of course, I've seen exactly five of them in all.

Price point will be a major factor. I think I read somewhere that they're going to be 19.99 a pop. If that's the case, I'll never spend a nickel on em.  A good marketing ploy for a retailer though would be- spend 200.00 on games and get a free faceplate of your choice...

Anyone here gonna buy 'more than one of these babies'?

Good, you're halfway done with the game (seriously, it took me 8 hours to beat because I found the side-quests boring).



Well, I'm not a power gamer, so I'm assuming it will take me quite a bit longer.

Also, I'm actually enjoying the sidequests...so there smile

I'm about 2 hrs into it and have just receieve the trader guarding quest.  I am absolutely loving this game.  I have no expectations and once again paying no attention to hype has allowed me to come through the development cycle unscathed.  That said, questions:

1.  When you cast certain spells it gives you a +/- to alignment. What does that mean?
2. How do you tell which weapons you can wield?  It appears that I can buy any weapon but how do I tell if my strength is sufficient to wield it?
3. Some prices are red and others are green when I buy things. What does that mean?
4. How do you aim with bows, crossbows etc without zooming in?  Is it just the left trigger and fire?
5. I can't figure out how to link items to my D-pad for quick use.  Is it context sensitive (i.e., different items are linked for combat, normal walking around etc?)
6. When you get a girl to fall in love with you (I've thus far had 11), how do you, ahem, go to the next level or marry them?  I don't see a dialogue (expression option) that would let me bed the wench smile. Or is that an expression I don't have yet?
7. How does one take advantage of combat multipliers? Do they just increase the amount of experience you get when you kill something?  Or is there a process for taking advantage of it?
8. Finally, do experienc orbs disappear if you don't pick them up in a certain time?  I feel like I have to break off my attacks to round them up so that I don't lose any.

Thanks all!

Well, as I've said before, I was going to wait two  years at least to move to next gen (if even then).  But based on the weight of this announcement alone and me not knowning anything about PS3, I'm already leaning toward Sony.

I think that "leaning" towards something that you know nothing about, even at this point, is rather unintelligent.  Wait until Sony shows us something about the PS3 before judging.


Hmm. A tad harsh methinks.  I'm not judging anything, as I said before, I'm not even going to get into the next gen for a few more years.  So my leaning is just that...a leaning, not necessarily towards the PS3, but away from 360.

A question for you: A little tense today?
14706  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 Pre-Release Thread on: August 17, 2005, 06:30:11 PM
When's the CG contest going to hit that's giving away a 360? biggrin

On an unrelated note: Ever notice how Knightshade is the finest specimen that humanity can offer? He's great.

AGTfox is also exceedingly great. In fact, his greatness is only outshone by his generosity and machissimo.

I've got no angst, but agree that this is a bad idea. I'm sure that fiscally this makes sense, but I can't see how they're going to gain market share from Sony as a result unless it's as stated, people buying the cheaper version and driving up the numbers...

It'll be interesting to see what happens.

However, I noticed that few of you (none?) are cancelling your preorders.  Seems hypocritical to denounce the idea and still pony up the cash.

Yep, great game. I loved it, but not enough to keep it in my collection.

Hmmm. what was the song they sing in the bar in the background? Very catchy but I can't remember what it was.

I loved it all the way to the end and quit when faced with a cheating bitch of an uber-boss that I can't fight worth a crap.


I never got all the complaining about the end boss- he's not even among the tougher of end bosses I've ever played against...  Beating him is simple:

14711  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / This Just In: Jade Empire Sucks on: August 15, 2005, 12:45:32 PM
So I come off of a 13 week hiatus from gaming (due in large part, methinks, to this lackluster title which I started just before the break) and have a need to finish my backlog before buying my heart's desire (Pirates!)  so I fire up this game.

I quit after just arriving at the Imperial City because the lack of inspiration, boring story, lack of emotional connection to my character or any of the regular halmarks of a typical Bioware RPG.  So now I'm plowing through it just to finish it and get my 'money out of it'.

It's agony.

All the quests are 'fed exy', my party interaction is shallow and uninspired, the story meanders along without any real punch and even the combat has gotten boring.

Ugh.  This game has made any future releases from Bioware wait and sees (unless they do KoTor 3).

Progress Check, with spoiler:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I just arrived at the Emperor's Palace and he's found out I'm a Spirit Monk. A huge battle commences with an endless stream of enemies. How far until this chore is over? How many more hours of gaming are left?


Right now I rate the game a C-.

I suggest quitting immediately, purging your cache, and never speaking of this atrocity again.


What's the deal?

Fuzz-

If I don't buy a class armor right away is there a penalty?  Meaning will I lose the chance to gain class levels: for example if I had bought class armor at level ten instead of level fifteen, would I have had 5 more class levels?

Right now I'm level 10 or so and I'm not sure what class I want to be at this point...Should I decide earlier rather than later?

Well, I made the mistake of clicking that link and now I'm into it.

however, the FAQ is woeful and you can't login to their message board until your account is 'old enough'.

Questions: My greatest frustration at this point is the lack of potions.

is it completely random that you get more?  how are you supposed to complete quests with only 1 potion?  I haven't been able to complete one quest.  I got one character to level 15 and could not beat the series of enemies.  

So what do I do? battle one off monsters till I'm level 30 or what? FRUSTRATING!
