14881  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / NOOOO. Bring back the Old New Forums on: October 27, 2005, 01:22:42 PM
For a brief moment in time I was the posting king...I was number one with an astonishing PPD of 8.0...

Now...now i'm just me again.

14882  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.
14885  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..
14890  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gameplay - freezes and stutters - bad copy or bad XBox? on: October 20, 2005, 11:26:53 PM
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?

14892  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.

Yes because Peter Jackson loved BG&E so much.


But...but...that Kong demo was pretty bad, right guys? Does this really give us a lot of hope?


Regardless. It will sell a GOzillion copies.  If that's what it takes to get a sequel, I'm fine with that.

No 2d game today looks as bad as that.  The visuals are dated.  But somehow I have no problem at all replaying Space Quest III, and I do have a hard time looking at Majora's Mask, a game released eleven years later.

You get a different ending if you find all nine upgrades & the water sword during the course of the game. The game ends differently (especially with regards to Kaileena's fate) and it doesn't have the same final boss.


Is it worth another play through to see it?

Cheat codes?

Anyone know what they're talking about?

Thanks.

I remember being excited and wanting to tell you guys...so I presume it was just a dream as I'm sure you would know it before I did anyway.

14914  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / When will the agony stop? How much longer? Jade Empire... on: October 07, 2005, 04:22:40 PM
Quote from: "Andrew Wonser"
It depends on your playstyle, but I would say two maybe three hours. I believe you have two more areas to play.

But it begs the question that if you hate the game this much that you want it to end quickly why exactly are you still playing? Masochistic?


It is only under the most extreme circumstances that I won't complete a game.  And since my gaming dollar is so limited and I paid nearly full price for this game (in anticipation) I feel I must finish it in order to get the bang for the buck.

Even if the bang is not that great.

Right now it's a c- title. If it were an F it would have long ago been ejected and traded....

14920  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Just Finished: Fable on: October 06, 2005, 12:41:14 PM
In my world famous thread of a few weeks back I stated that it was one of the most fun games I'd played this gen.

Well, the polish is off and though I give it a B+, it ended up not being as great as I had hoped.

I finished it in just under 11 hours (which is a good length for me) and enjoyed all but the final hour or so.

My biggest complaint is that it was far too easy.  The character you create is pretty much king of the world and even the final boss can't really do much against you.

The ending was also anti climactic.  That was the choice?  

One question: Is there more story after the credits?  I got a bad disk error as I was waiting and didn't want to deal with it again.

So overall, it was great fun at first.  Got very engaging towards the middle and then ended up as a 'I'm going to finish it just to finish it' for me.

I'd still recommend it, but with caution. I would be willing to play a sequel though!

Mid game spoiler.  Something that should have happened but didn't:

Spoiler for Hiden:
In the arena, when you choose to kill Willow or not, that should come back and have major impact on the rest of the story.  However, as far as I can tell you never hear from her again. What a waste of a potential story line.


Questions for those who completed the game entirely <minor spoilers>:

1. What was the treasure at the end of the clue maps?
2. What do you get if you get all the dolls?
3.  Is the sword in the stone any good?
