I am 4 hours in and it's, thus far, one of the most fun games I've played on xbox.

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

Put the game title in the thread subject and maybe we will have some idea what you are talking about?

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?

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:

15215  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!

My backlog (on XBOX) is not horrendous, but it is long (for me):

• Jet Set Radio Future (5/Dec/02)
• Panzer Dragoon Orta (Apr 03)
• Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds (30/Nov/03)
• Otogi: Myth of Demons (18/dec/03)
• Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge (Summer 04)
• Metal Arms Glitch in the System: (September 04)
• Fable (November 04)
• Mercenaries (January 05)

I acquired quite a PC backlog (probably X2 the above) just before getting my XBOX. So many legendary titles left unplayed....

How do you justify buying new games when you've got some great titles just waiting for you to play them sitting on your shelf.

15228  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's August: 2005 nearly 3/4 over: What's your GOTY? on: August 09, 2005, 02:17:21 PM
I love to ask the question, so I will:

So far this year, what's your GOTY?

Let's make it two categories (if you like):

GOTY1: Game released this year

GOTY2: Game you played this year regardless of release date:


GOTY:

Hmm. Unbelievably enough, I've only purchased one game that was released in 2005.  So I guess by default (though I haven't finished it and am not enthralled by it), mine is Jade Empire.  Edit: I guess Mercenaries was this year too.  JE stands.

GOTY2:

KOTOR2. My number 1 XBOX game of all time.
15229  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 to launch on November 4th at $299.99 per Wal-Mart on: August 09, 2005, 02:04:58 PM
Sorry, I didn't read through the whole thread, but:

Do you think that the 360 will follow the same pricing point decline as the Xbox?  By that I mean, since the system comes out Holiday 2005 that in 2007 it'll be 199.00?  That's my magic number if I get this console at all.

Or is it all relative to competition, success of sony/nintendo, etc.?

Additionaly, do you think there will be a price drop to take the steam out of the ps3 and nintendo releases?

I haven't played a PC game since I got my XBOX in 2003 (Christmas), yet, the classics are calling me back.

I've got the urge to play some Disciples, some Civ. 2., finally finish Brood War and Warcraft III.

It's odd that after such a long time there's still that tug.  It remains to be seen whether I actually do though....

Any bouts of nostalgia going on with anyone else?

From a console perspective, I wonder what great XBOX releases I've missed in the past 3 months...tips? Suggestions? Recommendations? (I'll be checking CG reviews too...smile)

So I rented get shorty (haven't seen it in years) to get the flavor of the characters again: GS is a fabulous film. Travolta is brilliant and charismatic.

In Be Cool it's as if he's a whole different person. The accent is wrong. The mannerisms...etc.

Chili Palmer of GS is SO much cooler than whomever that guy is supposed to be in BC.

I fired up the xbox demo disk and launched the Pirates demo which was the ship to ship combat mini game.  I played it for almost an hour.  It was great fun and the trailer seems like a hoot.
