15281  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It was a long 13 weeks- what'd I miss? on: August 09, 2005, 11:53:49 AM
For whatever reason, as I begin to at least somewhat transition back into gamedom, I'm actually feeling a yearning to play some of my old PC games...and I haven't fired up my PC to game since Christmas Day (aka XBOX day) 2003 (more on this in the proper thread).

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)
15282  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Movie] Be Cool gets the big thumbs down on: August 09, 2005, 10:23:42 AM
My parents rented be cool and let me borrow it...though I knew it was supposed to be horrible.

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.
15283  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Demo <broken> on: August 08, 2005, 07:42:26 PM
Again! Again! my demo disk doesn't work.

Why didn't this happen with Destory All Humans...a game I could not care less about.

NOOOO. One I want to play (and after a long hiatus) and it doesn't work.

In fact none of my 'playables' work.

I've boiled it and everything.

Not a thing.

Grrrr.  It's enough to make a guy take another 13 weeks off slywink.
15284  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It'll pass. You just need a really solid game to pull you in on: August 08, 2005, 12:39:45 PM
And the game that may have rekindled my desire is: Pirates.

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.


What's the word from my fellow (again!) CGers?!

15287  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My Wife Gone for 5 Days: Now 13 weeks! on: July 26, 2005, 07:32:38 PM
11 Weeks as of last friday.  Longest dry spell, me thinks, in my entire life.

No signs of letting up now.

Definitely Arnold from T1.

Also, don't forget the T100 kicked the T1000's butt.

Difference for me though is that once the gaming interest is gone, I will never come to another gaming site again.


I don't conisder CG a gaming website so much as one of the last vestiges of an Internet way of life that no longer exists.

Sure OO is more robust and alive, but I think more of the spirit of GG is here.  Don't know that I'll ever stop visiting...
15294  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire - Official Impressions on: July 08, 2005, 01:50:41 PM
The combat is the only thing I like about JE.  JE was the final game I started playing before my current 9 week apathy toward all things gaming.

Coincidence?
15295  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My Wife Gone for 5 Days: Now 13 weeks! on: July 08, 2005, 01:50:08 PM
An indirect result of my gaming break, hiatus, complete and total lack of interest, whatever, is that I now post on OO more than I do here  :oops:

15297  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Music while working? on: July 01, 2005, 02:43:24 AM
All day long.  I have a midiland speaker 2.1 system on my desk that I use when my officemate's gone.  When he's in I have some sweet headphones (whose maker I can't think of to save my life) that I use.

I basically have music on all day long.  Only way to concentrate...
15298  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Are you in debt? on: July 01, 2005, 02:41:48 AM
Only 'good' debt here: mortgage and about 6,800 left in school loans.  We also owe my pop some money that he loaned us to buy a mini-van.  But we're selling our house in the next month and that should take care of just about everything.

15300  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Kong is coming... on: June 28, 2005, 03:46:19 PM
Bleh.

Just watched the full trailer.  No thanks.  Probably not even a rental.

Jack Black's narration just doesn't fit as I don't think he can be serious at all.  I kept hearing his character from School of Rock (great movie).

Dinosaurs?

The t-rex kong scene was pretty cool, but I'd rather see King Kong v. Godzilla... slywink.

15304  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Starshifter! How's your Progress in KOTOR 2? on: June 14, 2005, 12:33:57 PM
Fabulous!

I agree about everything you said except this:

Quote
As good as KOTOR 1


I put KOTOR2 ahead of it. smile

The ending didn't really bother me until I got on some forums and read about all the stuff that was missing it.  Still, it's my favorite XBOX game of all time.

I don't know that I'll ever go back and play it again (as I'm not really interested at all in gaming right now), but I will remember it always as one of the greatest entertainment moments (er...hrs...er days) that I ever spent.

Glad you finally finished it.

My final thought is that this game is still a masterpiece no matter what was left out...but I really would like to see a 'director's cut' someday with all of the missing content placed back in.  I would probably play through it again....smile

It's now almost 3 full weeks with no gaming and the thought of sitting in front of a console is decidedly ho-hum.

How long has to elapse before my CG membership is revoked?  :oops:

Thanks.

15311  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having sleeping problems? on: May 26, 2005, 11:13:41 AM
I don't have sleeping problems per se, but if the room is too quiet my mind thinks about a million other things.  I need 'white noise' and always have a fan on when I'm trying to fall asleep.

The problem over the last year or so has been that if I wake up in the middle of the night (say to help my spooked daughter or because my dog barks) I CANNOT fall back to sleep because my mind is off and running.

This has probably happened 2 dozen times.  It's SO annoying.

15313  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Contender Finale on: May 25, 2005, 11:32:59 AM
Oh and in the final round when sergio wiped his cut and then licked the blood...that was totally a 'hollywood' moment.  He looked posessed and I kept thinking, man this kid is like a Rocky movie.

Awesome.
15314  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Contender Finale on: May 25, 2005, 11:29:57 AM
Spoilers:

Sergio won by unanimous decision. The scorecards weren't even close.

This was the first and only episode of this show I've seen. I came into it at about 20 after 8 last night and was riveted.

Don't know that I would watch a full season, but the finale was great.

Stallone was so annoying.  He started saying they need a rematch in the first round.  :x

The Latin Snake sure was fast man...fast!

15316  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Futurama to return? on: May 23, 2005, 10:57:32 AM
As long as the production values are as high as the other seasons this is fabulous news if it comes to fruition.

Futurama was the most jerked around show evar.  It never had chance.
15317  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 Games to be $59.99 each... on: May 19, 2005, 10:32:19 PM
How about this: Don't buy a new console and then you won't have to worry about the 60.00 price point!  


Or: more realistically: Wait for the new releases to come down in price.  What's the hurry anyway?  In the meantime, learn an instrument, take up weightlifting, finally write that novel you've been meaning to get to...etc.

Or: Eat the extra 10 spot.


ATB's Gaming Evolution: Atari 2600, NES, Sega Genesis, PC (1990 to 2002) XBOX...that might be all folks.  Just might be time to reclaim all that time back from the void....
15318  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which system(s) will you buy? on: May 18, 2005, 12:14:08 AM

Watch out everyone: Hetz is excited about a Morrowind game! slywink

Admonishment to all of my fellow gamers:  I didn't see the special...but don't any of you realize that the end result of buying into hype is always disappointment?  If you just roll along on the fringe like I do, you don't get ridiculous expectations only to have them dashed repeatedly... Follow my example friends!  Live in the information void!
