41  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FYI: Astropop on xbox Live Arcade on: March 22, 2006, 10:23:18 PM
I read that it was released today. I'll check it out later...provided that I can pull my gf from Jewel Quest. It seems that wednesday is the day for "new releases" on arcade. Hopefully next week is Street Fighter 2.
42  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Geometry Wars - I suck! on: March 20, 2006, 07:01:46 PM
Okay. I flew through Ninja Gaiden, God of War, and I once even beat my gamer friend 72-0 in Madden 95 back in the day so I figured I got mad gaming skills and can handle Geometry Wars. Well it didn't work that way and though I haven't played too much, I have yet to break 100,000 points.I am kinda guessing that a good strategy is to fire in the direction I am moving and move through the enemies that way, but my fingers do not cooperate. I may have to reassess my gaming skills.

Dkass,

 I just sent you a PM. I'm interested.
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question for those playing Burnout Revenge on Live on: March 18, 2006, 08:49:14 AM
I've noticed that about half of the time I try to connect to a game, I get a message that I can't connect and to check my network settings. I then try again on a different game and get right in. Is this normal?
46  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where are you from?? (Time for one of these threads) on: March 16, 2006, 04:28:22 PM
Hetz,

 I realized that you were in Wisconsin from your header but then to my surprise, I looked to the left as you mentioned....and wondered what you were doing in my co-worker Anthony's office.......   :wink:
47  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where are you from?? (Time for one of these threads) on: March 16, 2006, 04:13:02 PM
Hmmm. I think I already derailed my thread...or I will just blame ATB.

360andPS2 Consoleland is a pretty cool place...much better than BuyaTopoftheLinePCWithAwesomeGraphicCardEveryYearandSpendALotofMoneyLand
49  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where are you from?? (Time for one of these threads) on: March 16, 2006, 04:03:43 PM
I haven't seen one of these type of threads for awhile. I'm just curious where some of you guys are located as I'll probably be seeing some of you on Xbox live.

I'm in the suburbs of Cleveland,Ohio.
50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who's playing Burnout Revenge (360) online? on: March 15, 2006, 08:54:14 PM
Maybe I should have put this in the Mulitplayer forum, but I was just curious who else was playing this on live. I tried it out for the first time the other night and was impressed by the performance online. I played on a bunch of tracks that I wasn't familiar with yet from offline playing but it was still fun.
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about 360 start up settings on: March 15, 2006, 07:38:56 PM
Yeah, that's what I do now. I was just curious if there was a setting to bypass loading the game.
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about 360 start up settings on: March 15, 2006, 06:25:06 PM
Guys,

 I haven't found any kind of setting and I am guessing it isn't present, but I will ask anyway. Is there any way to start up the 360 and have it not load a game in the drive? I usually keep a game in there from time to time if I am concentrating on that retail game. Sometimes though I just want to start up the 360 and play some live arcade games. I then have to let the game start loading and hit the button to escape out of it.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GTA Series - Why am I avoiding these games?? on: March 08, 2006, 05:34:40 PM
Okay guys, I will admit to having never played any of the games in the series...and I'm not sure why. I do own Vice City and it's in the backlog but I have never touched it. Seeing how cheap San Andreas is now, that also tempts me. I think the problem I see is that the game may be too wide open. I have played a few games in the past that are so wide open that I get bored in a sense as I don't know what I want to do. It almost feels overwhelming. I mostly enjoy action/adventure,platformers and some rpg's. Can anyone convince me that I NEED to play these games?
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox 360/DVD question on: February 27, 2006, 08:11:10 PM
Andrew beat me to it. I was curious myself and looked it up:

"The Xbox 360 supports full rendering at various resolutions including 480p, 720p, and 1080i for its games, but DVD playback is limited to 480p"
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Stupid question about 360 gamercards on: February 24, 2006, 07:50:30 PM
Should I not see them on my own card on the 360?
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Stupid question about 360 gamercards on: February 24, 2006, 06:03:34 PM
Interesting. I connect to Live right away and stay connected all the time. I have put plenty of time in with Kameo and Zuma and my card has not changed in regards to pictures. My score updates as it should when I get achievements.
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Stupid question about 360 gamercards on: February 24, 2006, 05:48:44 PM
Guys,

 I probably overlooked something but how do you get the 5 picture game icons to display at the bottom of your gamercard. I haven't played too many games yet but I have Kameo, and also downloaded Zuma and a few others. My gamercard doesn't show anything down there.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about Xbox 360 HD resolutions on: February 19, 2006, 08:43:00 AM
So what is supposedly the best? I assume it to leave it in 720p as I have read in a few places that it is smoother for action games..something about 60fps as opposed to 1080i which is 30 fps and better in still pictures.
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about Xbox 360 HD resolutions on: February 19, 2006, 07:19:11 AM
You sure about that?? I just went into my system settings to HDTV settings and it basically makes me pick between 720p and 1080i and that it switches to whatever I pick. It doesn't seem to enable both and use whatever is native to the game.
60  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about Xbox 360 HD resolutions on: February 19, 2006, 02:24:25 AM
No that this matters much but I am curious. I have a Hitachi 55VF820 TV and the native resolution is 720p and it handles 1080i as well. When I set up the 360's video settings, I picked 720p. I noticed that some of the arcade games are listed native at 1080i. I run those in 720p. Does the 360 force you to display in one resolution or can I pick both and display in whatever the native is like my hd cable box?

(I would boot it up and play around but my gf is madly into the olympics and I can't touch the tv.....)
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Zuma - the suffering on: February 18, 2006, 07:52:44 AM
Man....

 I've played through Ninja Gaiden, God of War, Devil May Cry and don't remember too many issues like this. Now after a few games of Zuma, I have to take a break to let my hands return to normal. I'm not sure if I am playing too tense or what...It's pretty funny actually. At least I'm not the only one - my gf played her first game and got 60,000+ and complained for awhile about her hands and arms.
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Watch out now! My gamerscore is at 5!! on: February 15, 2006, 04:47:05 AM
Stiffler,

 I couldn't find one in my area and just bought one via "Buy it now" on Ebay. I did pay $40 over retail but it was still better than a huge expensive online bundle of things I didn't want. I had it a few days later.

64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Watch out now! My gamerscore is at 5!! on: February 14, 2006, 07:28:05 PM
Hello all,

 I haven't posted in quite some time as my account disappeared on me. Ron helped me out today.

Anyway, I got my 360 all hooked up yesterday and got on xbox live for the first time. I'm pretty impressed how the whole system is integrated with the achievements and gamerscores. I got my 5 points for doing something in Hexic...too bad I can't transfer in my Ninja Gaiden skills..

Well, I will start getting into some of these Live Arcade games(I downloaded the Zuma demo and will get the Marble Blast game later) and will hopefully see some of you guys online at some point.

BTW, my profile name is TheAmericanIdle.
