2001  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Titan Quest: Hunter viable for Typhoon? on: September 18, 2007, 01:49:18 PM
Never made it to Typhoon my first crack at this game. Just fired it up again the other day. Lv-19 all skill points into Hunter tree so far.
I've been reading here and there about how tough Typhoon is. What should I add to the Hunter to make him strong enough for a fair Typhoon fight?

I'm also not getting alot of good drops. I have a half decent bow and gauntlets...but other than that just meh stuff.

What resists should I get up to snuff for Typhoon?

Danke for any tips......

I use preorders as a means to reward polite and competent employees. They get rewarded for those numbers so I dole it out to people who treat me well.

Is this true that the employee who rings up the order gets a reward or something? If so, I'll have to be more choosy about who I pre-order through...

yeah, if there was one I'd pre-order from the cute brunette girl that works at mine.

Girl?? Oh well there goes my supposition you were gay. I thought from your forum Avatar that you kinda went the other way.
Ooops, my bad. paranoid nod

Yeah, as if they wouldn't ship copious amounts of Halo-3 knowing they will fly off the shelves.

Or maybe in bizzarro world you'd hear this:  Hey boss did you read about the excitment level for our gaming hitting fever-pitched levels? Yes I did son, and because of that I'm only going to ship enough games for the pre-order people. After all son, this isn't about money, but honoring those who just can't wait for our game so they pre-ordered. Ahhhh, you're so smart boss....Yep, thats why they pay me the big bucks son. Now go tell Lou in shipping to put a delay-shipment tag on those 4 million boxes of Halo-3...On my way boss.... retard
2006  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamestop Halo 3 Pre-Orders are through the roof on: September 13, 2007, 04:10:03 PM
I understand expectancy excitement for title. But one thing I have never felt I needed to do with a game is pre-order it.

To be honest it kinda baffles me why some will go to great lengths to ensure they are one of the first to have a title.
Usually the person has anticipated the title for well over 6 months, would 1 or 2 more days matter?

But there ya go.........Differences in people like this make the World go round I guess...

If I get Halo 3, and same applies for Mass Effect which is a game I am tons more wanting than Halo 3, I will saunter into the local store the day after release and look for it on the shelf...Not there? Pop next door to the other game store....dang, not there either...Oh well, I'll come check tomorrow.....easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Please don't read into this that I in anyway think I'm better than the must-have-first-day-gamers..................................................umm, I would never admit to that anyway.... paranoid nod

Just got this for the 360. Never have I wanted to quit a game so much in the first 1 hour of play. Thankfully I didn't do it.
Sure gets addicting if you stick with it.

I saw the guide in EB when I bought the game, and I had the feeling it might be one game worth having it for. I think I'm right.
I'm going to get the guide this week-end. I really think this game is so deep with many nuances that having a guide will add to the game not take away from it.

Anyone buy the guide yet?
there's a guide?  meh, I'm going to have to resist.  I'm having too much fun discovering stuff on my own.

Yeah, I think I can count on two fingers how many game guides I've bought. For some reason I have a feeling a game guide for this one might be fun to have.........But you're right, some stumbling, bumbling exploration with trial and error is part of the fun. The guid looks really well written with great pic's....Ok, I'll shut up about the guide........You guys sure you aint gonna get it? ok, ok, I'm going......... nod

When the hell are game designers going to realize that reading and listening to journal entries as a form of putting a story together is uber lame. I'm surprised at all the acclaim this game is receiving, there are so many ways the gameplay is behind the times.

You are insane.

Best Shooter = Unreal
Best RPG      = Planescape Torment
Best Adventure = Blade Runner
Best MMORPG = WoW
Best Action  = Mafia
Best RTS   = Age of Empires
Best Sim =  Falcon 4.0

Although its wearing really, really thin right now...........I would give the over-all nod to.....drum roll................World of Warcraft.

Just in the amount of hours put into this and time spent reading forums, participating in forums, and researching things, WoW wins hands down.

Mom, if you divorced dad... would he still be your brother? -CeeKay, age 10

For all you 'mericans, Alberta (think of it as a state, even though we have what's known as "provinces") is Canada's Texas. Oil and cattle are big business there, and Calgary is fast becoming one of the most expensive places to live.

Edmonton is north of Calgary and is significantly cheaper to live, although in recent years real estate has jumped in value. For reference, Edmonton is very similar to Winnipeg with regards to population and temperature, even though it is further north.

Viva having all 4 seasons (instead of just stupid hot, stupid, and hot).

Do you have semi-literate presidential (prime minister, eh?) candidates pretending they are from Alberta?

No one is FROM Alberta......But everyone GOES there. Boom time in the land of Wheat, Cattle, and Oil....Think Texas on steroids..

I've done a number of consulting gigs in Edmonton over the last 7 years and have always liked the city. Sure it's cold in winter, but It only usually reaches 40 below for about 2 weeks of the year; usually about 0 degrees F. It may not be the best place to live but the populations about 700K now so there's definitely no shortage of places to go and things to do; trendy Whyte avenue comes to mind.

heck, even 0 degrees F is pretty darn cold.

what can I say?  those of us in the civilized parts of the country have developed indoor heating, so temperatures that cold tend to make us not like them  Tongue

Yeah, but burning the kitchen chairs doesn't really qualify as indoor heating... And also we aren't allowed to marry our cousins way up here.... icon_lol

in order for that to be done properly I'd think it would have to be heavy on the FPS elements.  If they did that I'd be in.

Why fps? I'm not saying stick to the WoW way of combat, but I don't think it would have to be like a FPS game to work. Certainly for dueling..."meet me in the street at high noon" type stuff..."Draw pardner"....smile)

I really need a new MMORPG. I'm almost at the point of going back into CoH-CoV.

You know what MMORPG I miss? I miss the early days of SWG. Yeah, I know wha?????

I loved the Star Wars feel. I know lots complained it didn't nail down the atmosphere enough, but for me it was fine.
I love the way the game looked, I loved the "classes" you could develop. The crafting system actually had some depth to it..And for me to say that about crafting is amazing in and of itself.

There were tons of iffy and negative stuff about SWG but over-all I would love to have a sci-fi MMORPG that was as immersive and fun as the early months of SWG.

I'm so fed up with Orc, elves, hobbits, mages, etc..............

So whats the big ones on the horizon? More Orc's, elves, dwarves, and half-dressed gladiators that can kill a 12 ft Ogre with one swing... Warhammer, Conan.

I wanted  TR to be the Sci-Fi game to bring back those old feelings. It doesn't look like that going to happen...shame...

Anywho, is this game good or what? I need to close down WoW once and for all. WoW feels like a girlfriend who's over-stayed her welcome. On the one hand she's familiar and on the other she's flat out boring.

Is it fun?
Seriously though...I tested it as well, and while I'm a Tolkien fan of long standing, the game felt dead and boring.
I wasn't a month into testing and I couldn't bring myself to log on anymore. Before testing I would have sworn black and blue any Lord of the Rings game done well would have me in spades. While the game felt like it was created lovingly and with expertise...it just lacked that certain "magic" that other new, well done MMORPG's have had for me.

I would love to kick my WoW habit, but I need a MMORPG to play. I'm not sure I could do Lotro again. But if what has changed has added a "living, breathing, world" feel to it......I might have to take another look.

Also, I don't like crafting, never have. I'm a gatherer in WoW(skinning, herbalism)thats the extent of my crafting play.
Does Lotro have something other than making stuff for gaining more money? Not just looting, I mean like gathering?

Thanks.

I never thought I'd say this, but: I am anticipating Mass Effect less than I have in months and months. The reason? Bioshock.

I cannot possibly see Mass Effect being as good as this game. Period.

The bar has been raised. What can possibly live up to it or surpass it?

I think its apples and oranges. For me Bioshock was a good game but in no way a classic. All hype aside, I think Mass Effect has classic written all over it... But then again I'm not a Professional Prognosticator of Games Deemed Classic.......
