Looks like fun...maybe.  Is it a new series or the continuation of another one?

Is there anyone left out there that still thinks the PS3 *isn't* messed up?

Remember. You still think it will dominate the next gen console market and that the Wii will be nothing.

I am by no means a gaming master, but combat in SOT was never a problem for me. I remember people saying it was SO hard even when it first came out...but I never seemed to have a problem.

Now there was a fight in TTT that actaully caused me to break my controller (literally) but it was because I i had so little life and would die in 2 hits. The rest of the game wasn't bad...neither was WW...

Good luck!

What is real time weapon switching?

Does that mean it takes say 5 seconds to put your assault rifle over your shoulder with the strap and pull the pistol from your holster?

I've heard of RTWS but I don't know that I've ever seen it defined.

IF what I wrote is correct, then who cares? Can't anyone do that?

Had no interest in this game. Trailer looks very interesting and I'll be checking to see the reviews...cause it's now on my watch list!

I never got bullied much in school except for a couple times my freshman year.

One time a guy was hassling me and kept hassling me, so I shoved him over a desk, he got up, slapped me in the side of the head and that was it.

Another time, two seniors threw my glasses across the bus cause I wouldn't give them my seat.  The next day I had my big brother and his friend meet one of them at the bus stop. That pretty much ended that.  

The second guy wasn't there to meet my back up, but he never bothered me again either. However, he did continue to pick on my best friend- who would be the starting offensive tackle for 3 of the 4 years we attended Oakton High and was and still is  the strongest person I've ever known in my life.  Needless to say, he lost the eventual fight and probably still has a lisp due to the dental work required to place his front teeth back in his mouth.

Ahh...high school the worst social experiment ever inflicted on children.
14892  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is it the Weekend Again? 11/Aug/06 on: August 11, 2006, 11:52:46 AM
Today is going to be the longest Friday in memory due to the work I have to get done, but I'm looking longingly to tonight and this weekend, where I probably won't game that much, but will be getting in at least some:

Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time


I may revisit Guitar Hero again in preparation for a trip to see my niece and nephew. They now have the game and I'm all interested in doing the duelling guitars thing.
14893  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Kobra on: August 11, 2006, 11:22:28 AM
Well, it's a novelty at this point.  Once the fuss dies down everything will be fine.  If there's any forum here that needs a shot in the arm it's EBG.  

Now let's get to discussing something hmmm. Nevermind, I'm off to the console forum.

OO is a place that is hard to describe, but something about that particular forum just brought out the worst in me. From what I see/hear, it tends to bring out the worst in many others as well. I am registered and post at nearly two dozen internet forums, and have never been banned at any forum except for OO. In fact, I never had a problem at any except OO.  


Also see:

Uhm. Devi is a lot of drama still. Kobra finally got the perma ban he deserved. I voted for it, but lost a friend out of it. Sadly. He wanted me to be bias about my decision for his perma ban. O.o I mean, if you look at his record the whole time he's been here.. All he does it flame, harrass, argue, whine. Whether or not he's a friend to me, doesn't mean I'm going to LIE to his face or anyone else's and be bias. As a GM, you shouldn't be bias anyways. o_o It's really kind of stupid, he took it as 'backstabbing.' I don't know, I don't think he's good for Devi. Whether or not I believed that the screenshot of his 'packetting' was actually packetting. To me there was a big difference from the screenshot taken of him, packetting and the time he packetted for testing. And seeing a difference. Sadly I think he was trying to prove there IS no difference, but there really is.. xD Maybe he did packet, considering the point he was trying to prove? I dunno. O.o But there was a difference to me. It's just funny how he takes things so personal.. But, oh well. He's the one who decided to drop the "two year friendship." Not me. I don't drop friendships over silly shit like that. I mean, god. He also tried to prove that Shiros and I were inactive with GMing on Devilish. Which is pure bullshit. We normally wake up and then GM and stuff. -.-; That or we get on before we sleep. And it's really EVERY day. We may have missed one day, sure. But god.

Ah yes. Trust but verify.
14895  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Kobra on: August 10, 2006, 09:49:45 PM
It's funny how both GT and BC pick up the debris of OO.  Only then do people realize how cool (yet for totally different reasons) each of those sites are and how...just awful... OO has become.

Quote from: "Kevin Grey"
I'd be interested in someone's opinion on this who didn't play Superstar Saga first.  My feeling on Partners in Time isn't that it's actually worse, it just isn't really much of an improvement so it doesn't feel nearly as fresh.  I wouldn't be surprised to find that a person who plays PiT first would either prefers it to SS or doesn't find SS to really be that much better.

Got a copy you want to send me? If so, i'll be your guy slywink.

I'm shopping for it and it appears that cartridge only looks like the way to go for cheap (do they explain all the moves in SS like they do in PiT)?

Otherwise it'll be 20+ and I'm not in the mood to spend that much yet.

As said somewhere, M&L partners in time what is currently dominating my play time.

That said, M&L SS actually has higher ratings, but it's a GBA card. Is there a graphical difference between the GBA games and the DS ones? Is it significant?

Will I be able to successfully go back and play SS if I'm used to the controls and innovaiton of PiT?

Advice porfavor.
14901  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Would you Buy the Wii for $229? on: August 08, 2006, 01:31:40 PM
For 229.00 yep. No doubt.  

That said, I'm hesitant about being an early adopter of a console (got the DS lite at launch but I don't think that counts).

I've never been one and have always been the beneficiary of that choice.

Also, though Nintendo's rep for creating impecable hardware is sound, all the difficulties people have had with 360 makes me gunshy.

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.

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.

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

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:

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

14915  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?
