15281  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!

15284  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?

15291  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which Prince of Persia 2 version is the least buggy? on: September 26, 2005, 02:39:09 PM
Now that I think about it, I did hit a bug that played one cutscene without sound.

I reloaded and had no problems...

Quote from: "mikeg"
Too many to mention them all but by far the worst is the save-game bug.  many have experienced it and it bit me in the ass big time.  Somewhere around the second tower level I saved.  Fine.  Then I played through a HUGE section and finally got to another save point.  Saved.  Whew.  Thank goodness.  Later when I started it up to play again I was back at the previous Tower save and not at the last one I had saved on. So, I tried it again and the same thing happened after saving a second time.  Bottom line, unless I am willing to play 10 hours straight and finish the game from that point, I am screwed.  I have read hat if you start over from the beginning of the game it might not happen the second time through.   Might not happen!!!!!   To hell with that.


Was this the XBOX version?  Man...i can't imagine.

I didn't have any save problems...
15293  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Best Game You've Played This Gen? on: September 26, 2005, 01:19:39 PM
As many of you will be leaving those of us who are more cautious (read: prudent ) in the dust with the release of 360 and the next gen, I figure now is a good time to list the BEST game you've played on this gen.

It could be because of amazing gameplay, graphics or just be a title that moved the gamer's heart in you...

My Top Five:


5. Robotech: Battlecry - I was a Robotech super fan as a kid.  Somewhere in my heart there's still a hope that Rick Hunter really exists and is flying around up there.  My first game on this Gen and still one of the best...
4. SSX Tricky- The game that I most return to during a 'lull'. Flat out fun.
3. Ninja Gaiden- I still don't get how no one mentions the amazing graphics of this game as the cutscenes are the best of I've ever seen. Yes, OXM, even better than Halo 2.  The difficulty turned many off, but for me, this is probably the tops Action game I've ever played.
2. Knights of the Old Republic- Many complained about the glitches...I only encountered one.  An epic story that sucked me in and made me care about the characters and believe that the results of my actions held the universe in the balance.


1. Knights of the Old Republic II - I came away changed as a person as a result of this game.  Again, many complained about this game's bugs (which I again somehow missed) but the story in this one trumped the original in every way....It's only in retrospect that I'm somewhat disappointed in 'what could have been', but before I knew about what was left out I came away more than satisfied.
15294  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Worst Game You've Played this Gen? on: September 26, 2005, 01:11:02 PM
As many of you will be leaving those of us who are more cautious (read: prudent slywink) in the dust with the release of 360 and the next gen, I figure now is a good time to list the WORST game you've played on this gen.

It could be because of glitches or gameplay or a game that just didn't click with you.

My Bottom Five:

5. Jade Empire - A game that could have been that shoulda never been.  Put Bioware on my watch and wait list and removed them from buy day one sight unseen list...<forgot about this one Scott>
4. ESPN NFL 2005 - NCAA 2003 is still the best footbal game ever.  This game has sees the receivers drop nearly every pass.  The pricepoint got me on this one... Oh and the Crib? Lame
3. Spiderman the Movie - Worst controls and camera ever
2. Sega GT - Blech.

1. Soul Caliber II- I will usually give any game a chance, but this one...Played for 20 minutes and traded.  Yuck.  The only game in the 40 to 50 I've played this gen (probably buy 10-12 more) that has rated an F from me.

They definitely must have changed their shipping patterns cause I'm now a part of the OXM early delivery crew.

15296  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which Prince of Persia 2 version is the least buggy? on: September 26, 2005, 11:50:24 AM
What bugs?

I must have the most blessed console life in the history of the world:

KOTOR: One bug found
KOTOR2: One bug found
PoP:WW: None

Warrior Within, upon purchase and first play, was SO bad.  But once I got used to the controls, it turned out to be another A list title.

I would rate PoP:SoT an absolute A+. One of the best games I've ever played.  I gave WW an A.  Not as good, but still a greatly fantastic games.

Now...what bugs?
15297  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Indigo Prophecy on: September 24, 2005, 02:50:22 PM
I finally played the demo last night.

I enjoyed it but my options seemed pretty limited...perhaps it's because of the demo nature, but I tried

<EARLY GAME/DEMO SPOILTERS>

to leave the body in the middle of the bathroom and bash the cop with his broom.

It didn't let me do it as after I cleaned up the blood I had to put the broom back.

So there's freedom to play it in different ways, but not too much....

Next, I tried to take the knife from the bathroom, stab the cop, take his gun and take the patrons hostage until the cops arrived. I also tried to negotiate for a helicopter and 1,000,000 bucks in small unmarked bills, but they would only give me a car and some lotto tickets.  I was disappointed...

<END SPOILERS>


Are there more options in the full version?

That said, I'm glad Irataki or whatever his name is decided to re-release the game with an easier difficulty.  That way a whole new audience will be able to see how amazing a game it is.

It's my #3 all time game for xbox.

Glad you're enjoying it.

15304  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Morrowind GOTY for XBOX on: September 14, 2005, 01:51:58 PM
I'm really in a state of mind that I want to RPG.

Some of the things I remember hearing about Morrowind that I didn't like was the skill system...the more you use a skill the better you are at it.

Does that mean in order to jump over a crack in the sidewalk I need to practice my jump skill for hours on end or is it a points based system (sans floating experience orbs) like Fable?

What's the good and bad about Morrowind on the console.

PS. Hetz need not apply slywink

I don't get the whole Pats backlash.

There's no one on the team who is an idiot like say that dope on the eagles.

They're not cocky.

They just get the job done and as far as I can tell are pretty humble about it.

Is this just a 'hate the winner' type backlash?
15306  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question for Console Vets on: September 13, 2005, 11:58:43 AM
As I'm pretty much a n00b in teh console arena, XBOX being my first console since Genesis...

How long can we expect Xbox to be supported after 360 roles out?  When will games stop being stocked and disappear from the shelves.

Basically my question is: I've got a 10 game backlog now but there are games I want to have in my collection: Brothers in Arms, Psychonauts, etc...  Should I snatch them up now or wait for prices to drop?  Or will everything start disappearing within in 6 months after 360 role out?

After 2 years 9 months and 5 days, I have finally fired up a computer game.  What has drawn me back?

This thread:  This thread and its mention of Disciples 2 coming to the humble DS.

Since D2 was/is my favorite PC game of all time, I had to fire it up. Now I'm hooked all over again...and I've ordered Gold just to get all three expansions.

It's so good to be a complete gamer again...It's good to be home...

What's the game that everyone is talking about right now or awaiting emminently?

Back in the days of PC gaming the boards would flutter with activity after a up to and until major release day and then everyone would buy it, play it and chat about it in a 5 page+ thread.

Is there anything like that in Consoleland right now or is it a different landscape...I'm out of the loop.


Of course this won't make me buy it now. Pay full price? No way, latin american male name!

15319  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 Faceplates- You gonna buy any? on: September 06, 2005, 12:14:42 PM
In OXM this month, there's a brief article on some of the available faceplates that are going to be available for the new console.

The end of the article, in typical OXM bottom smooching fashion, states:  'Better start saving now- especially since you're going to want more than one of these babies!'

As for me, if I go next gen and end up with a 360, there's only one faceplace that even looks remotely interesting and it's the 'hot rod' one.  Of course, I've seen exactly five of them in all.

Price point will be a major factor. I think I read somewhere that they're going to be 19.99 a pop. If that's the case, I'll never spend a nickel on em.  A good marketing ploy for a retailer though would be- spend 200.00 on games and get a free faceplate of your choice...

Anyone here gonna buy 'more than one of these babies'?
