Now I'm terrible at math, but isn't 0 x 168 0?

Or is this some kind of geek higher math thing?

Isn't the designer (Micheal Ansel?) working on King Kong?


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.

I guess, but...



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.

Quote from: "Andrew Mallon"
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?

In their preview of POP3, OXM hints at a secret 'real' ending for POP:WW.

Anyone know what they're talking about?

Thanks.

As for POP3. I'm totally there...I think the dual Princes could work out well.

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.

Sad if it was just a wonderful dream...one from which I had to wake...

15214  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....

To get this off my backlog, I want to finish this snorefest:

Huge spoiler:

I just got killed by you know who toward the end of the game and have just arrived in the spirit world.

How much further until this game is over?


1 hr? 2? 3? .5?

He will hold back the lawyers if you send a check for 1 dollar for every post you've made to me (who is acting on his behalf).

Make checks payable to ATB Enterprises.

15220  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?

How much more assanine can this industry get?


smile You're totally the reason I changed the name of the thread.

Misery loves company.

That said, what someone above said, I figured immediately before my thread title change that both the titles were third party devs...so I'm sure it wasn't cancelled forever cancelled.

Gladius (I'd post a link, but it seems my favorite console site doesn't hav a review). was/is a fabulous turned based strategy game by LucasArts that to the chagrin of everyone who has any sense didn't sell worth a hoot.

I, however, adored it.  I put 50+ hours into finishing it (as the Barbarians) and there were many work nights that I stayed up until 3 in the morning playing it.  That's how good it was for me.

Does anyone know of a game similar to it?

Anyone know the official status of a potential sequel?

If you fancy TBS, run don't run to your local bargain bin and pick it up.

15229  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / I'm A Pretty Neat Guy, Right? on: September 29, 2005, 01:43:52 PM
So...why not shower me with gifts?

I mean I have started threads that have generated hundreds of responses on CG. Prior to that, my gifted posts were legendary on GG.

I did a great humanitarian act, sparing perhaps millions of people the horror of seeing Crowley photos yesterday, by starting a  proper warning thread complete with the alias name of the offender in the title (unlike the completely useless thread attempt by Calvin listing no details that would unwittingly and eventually become a place tainted by the horror itself and causing many to die a little on the inside as a result)....

So, what I'm proposing, since you've all been able to bask in my neatness for so long now, why not buy me a Nintendo DS?

I know what you're thinking...someone as wonderful and humble as ATB would never accept such a gesture...as being a hero just comes natural to him.  But let me put that concern to rest dear friends: I would accept such a gift.  

I humbly await the details on how I can pick it up.

In the meantime, feel free to write and post poems and stories of adoration about me or, for you weirdos out there, dress in a COSPLAY  representation of me.

!Tip!

XBOX 360 would be acceptible too...

15231  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What are your 2 or 3 must-finish games? on: September 28, 2005, 08:08:15 PM
I don't have any MUST FINISH games, as that makes me think a game is so good it is beckoning me on to complete it...but I'm in the middle of several

Fable (XBOX)- Really enjoyed it so far, but I'm ready to be done with it.  It's far too easy.

Jade Empire (XBOX)- Because every dime I spend on a game is measured and I made the mistake of pre-ordering this and almost paying full price for it I have to finish it.  I'm very near the end but would rather sit down to tea with Crowley than play this game.

Mercenaries (XBOX)- Started this a while ago, but knew that it would be something I play in fits and spurts as it's so repetitive.  Not a knock, but that's the way it is.

Disciples 2 (PC)- First PC game I've played in almost 3 years.  My favorite PC game of all time gets another play through and I now own all of the expansions...so this one is gonna take a while. W00t!

15234  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gaming Hours Per Week? on: September 28, 2005, 02:27:30 PM
Ok friends. I've had it with you. You guys with all of your consoles and handhelds already talking about buying the next gen machines.  Where do you find the time to game so much.

I'm an average guy: I have a wife, one child (one on the way) a 40-50 hr per week job, a mortgage, car payment and no other debts.  Still I cannot find enough time in the week to game as much as you guys seem to.

I'm thinking of maybe getting a DS at some point, but I don't know when I'd play it...

I'd say on average I get in 3 - 7 hrs per week.  If there's a game that's feeding my soul I'll say up ridiculously late and play it, but those are rare.

Additionally, I watch maybe 2-4 hrs per week of TV and spend probably 5-7 hrs (on a good week) reading the Bible.

So given the poll, how much do you game?
