14841  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Got my first Xbox 360 game today! on: November 11, 2005, 03:05:51 PM
Thanks for the pics.  Nice and colorful.

I was hoping for a bit of a change on the standard green dvd case.  Maybe a white box...

OXM has me starting to crave a 360...I'm still miles away from getting one, but some of the coverage of the various titles that are expected is begining to pique my curiosity.

That said, I've been swooping in on ebay and buying some XBOX games really cheap to round out my collection before they get scarce.  

I've picked up: NBA ST V3, SSX 3, BIA: Hill 30, and KUF: Crusaders.

My XBOX and I won't be parting ways for a while smile
14844  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / OXM? on: November 08, 2005, 03:43:41 PM
I've already re-subbed for one more year (ending 12/06).

I won't be getting the 360 at least until a price drop (if ever), but allegedly (I think I read it in OXM) there will be another 400 XBOX releases in 2006. So there should still be plenty of coverage for the old schoolers.

Ok, I'm starting to think that my latest issue of OXM got swiped or something.  I seem to recall reading here that a few of you got yours a couple of weeks ago, but mine is nowhere to be seen.  I'm getting a little irritated because I just saw the new issue on the shelf at the local grocery store and I fail to see what the point of having a subscription is if you don't get issues at least by the street date.


Is this common with these guys?  should I just wait it out?


Are you a new  subscriber?

Not that that's relevant. I used to get it two weeks into the new month (so it'd come between the 7th and the 10th.

Now I get it two weeks FROM the new month and get it on the 15th or so the month before.  Man, it's a sweet place to be.

I don't know if it's cause my zip code changed or what.

Hang tight!

For 180K, you will probably will be paying 2K easily monthly.


Zippo chance of that.

I currently have a mortgage of 170k and it's only 1350 and taxes in Northern Virginia are OUTRAGEOUS.  I'm getting ready to buy a new house in NC and the lender says figure 60 dollars per ten thousand...so 180 = 18 x 60 = 1089 for princ and interest.

Figure 400 bones or so for insurance (per year)  + whatever your taxes will be.

You should be able to escape with a 1500 to 1600 mortgage.  Still well off of where you want to be but not near 2000.

Finally, is the 180 figure with down payment or before?  If you dont' put 20% down in one form or another you can expect to pay for Private Mortgage Insurance too (PMI).

How many hours of gameplay?


I'd say around 10.  Definitely on the short side, and I didn't see anything that listed the time played.


Well 10 hrs is a lot of gaming time for me.  So that's  a great length for me... As to whether I'll ever get it...well that just remains to be seen.

Wow.  This game rocked.  I picked it up yesterday and pretty much played straight through.  The story is great, the action was intense, the targeting system was...was... fucking annoying.  If only there was a way to turn off the autotarget all together.  anyway, you can get this one for 25 used or 20 for the PC version.  It's worth your time and money at that price.  I just hope they make the other 2 games in the series, or at least one more to give a sense of resolution


Oh yeah, and you really want to sit through the closing credits on this one.  There's more gameplay after them  :twisted:


How many hours of gameplay?

Just a heads-up for those of you interested in the game, my local EB tells me that they needed to make a special order this morning in order to ensure getting any copies in their store. Otherwise they would have been sent none! Apparently there will be very low quantities of this available.

If you want the game, you might want to get a preorder in soon! (The game ships on Nov. 8, btw)


Is it PS2 only?

14864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Gladius] - Thanks Dafones! on: October 25, 2005, 01:33:06 PM
Yes indeed. Gladius is such a phenominal game that I started a thread reminiscing about it and hoping for a sequel (though it quickly turned into betrayal and lies about KOTOR (Right, Starshifter slywink?)  Maybe someday  a sequel to this fine fine TBS game it will happen...

However, what is that screenshot (character shot) from? I don't remember him being in it.

I do remember that the same studio that did the Buffy games also did Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.  I think it even used the same engine for what it's worth.


I love IJ & ET.  Wish they'd do a sequel to that too...it was hella fun.
14867  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any News on any future Buffy Games? on: October 21, 2005, 05:04:03 PM
I played through the original BtVS back in late 2003 and absolutely loved it (except for one impossible level  :x  that had me restart it a gozillion times). I finished the game and was pleased to see a sequel.  

When Chaos Bleeds came out, I picked it up, noted that they changed the engine and let it sit on my shelf for 2 years.

Since I'm attempting to play through my backlog and I've been playing longer type RPG games I figured I'd give it a spin.

They broke quite a few things (especially the camera) with the engine redesign, but once again I'm enamored of it.

I've never seen the show (nor do I plan to), but I love BtVS as a game concept.

Any news of new games on the horizon or is it pretty much a dead license since the show is no longer on?

I like to keep games that are watershed moments in gaming for me.

I have pro wrestling from NES as well as the original Zelda.

For xbox these are the games I'm keeping forever:

Robotech Battlecry
SSX Tricky
KOTOR
KOTOR2
HALO
POP: SoT
NBA Street Vol 2
Ninja Gaiden

Possibly Pop:WW...just so I'll have the whole collection..

I've been having issues with my box lately. Seems like on any game I play I'm getting periodic bad disc errors.  It's driving me up the wall...especially on a game like chaos bleeds wehre there's no mid level save...

The problem started when we moved back into my parents house (while our new one is built)...they smoke in the basement where my box is...could that have something to do with it?

14874  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 vs Playstation 3 on: October 20, 2005, 12:11:21 PM
I only have an XBOX this gen, so naturally, I'm leaning toward 360 next gen.  However, I won't be buying either for years to come so that will give me the opportunity to do as I did this gen.  Compare all 3 systems and see which one is right for me.

I feel that I made the right choice this gen and by the time I'm ready for next, there will be enough info out and enough people to consult (points finger at screen) to help me make my decision.

As for Sony overall- I can't stand their products nor the arrogance with which they develop and deliver them.  I hate the little things they do to make them 'unique' that sacrifices usability and defacto-ness.  

Save for the PS3 (maybe), I plan to never willingly buy another sony product as long as I'm a consumer.

Gladius for Xbox.   I need to go find this again.  What a dumbass.


I would put that on my list too... I traded it for Psi ops, which was fun, but I'm hankering to play Gladius again..

Also: Original Fallout.  I re-acquired it in a trade with minimal loss, but what was I thinking?

BG&E- Not because I'd play it again any time soon, but because it was just such a fun game that I would play through again if there ever is a sequel.

Maybe Indiana Jones and the Emperor's tomb.  That was just a hoot.
