Super duper supercalifragilistic stoked for this one.  This and Mass Effect are my number one and two most wanted games of the year.  God, I can't wait for them.  Finally, something dripping with quality and different.  What I have been wanting since the words next-gen were first penned.

Same.

This game looks too good to be true........

Too arcadey for me.
The photo-realistic landscapes and water sure are purty, but the gameplay.......stinkeroo...

Granted I started my PC-gaming hobby on flight sims such as Falcon 4 etc...so maybe I'm too simmy for this game.

There is no flight model to speak of.....fire and forget missles are fine but I couldn't miss if I wanted to in this game.
The radio chatter is very non-realistic another minus for me.............
I can't see this thing having any depth at all.

Reminds me of the kind of game you'd see in a mall or something....Oh wait, I already said it was too arcadey....
2125  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Blue Dragon demo up! on: July 11, 2007, 01:28:13 PM
Well I got it. I never liked Nippon RPG's, I still don't.

I just don't get the attraction to these types of games. They seem ponderous, a little too kiddie like, and turn-based combat is just boring to me.

But, different strokes for different folks.............I guess.

2127  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Few console owners using multimedia capabilities, says study on: June 29, 2007, 03:59:00 PM
We have our 360 in the masterbedroom. I play it on a small 27inch HD. We don't have A\C throughout the house just a small one in the bedroom. We were having a real heat-wave the other day and basically living in the bedroom.

It dawned on me then that we could watch movies on the 360.....I always knew it, just never needed it.
Made a nice treat laying in bed watching movies staying cool.

But other than that I would never use it for anything but games.

I played GW when it first came out, but stopped before any X-pacs.
I guess you need each succesive expansion to play the next, right?

2129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon release date(UK) on: June 28, 2007, 03:02:29 PM

I'm not a lover of Anime type graphics, just wondering.
2130  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Forza 2 for DiRT...360 versions. on: June 28, 2007, 03:00:48 PM
Forza 2, pristine condition, barely played.

Looking for DiRT...same condition..

I had a very good trading rep on the old Gone Gold forums but haven't traded in ages.

So, if you have a good rep with trading I'd be more than happy to ship to you first.

I'm in Ontario, Canada if that makes a difference....

Let me know..
2131  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I finally got it on: June 26, 2007, 10:50:43 AM
I have mine sitting on the floor(hardwood)vertically. I haven't even tried it horizontal. Wait, that didn't sound right..umm, yeah, you know what I mean.. paranoid

I don't play much, and when I do not for very long, so I've not noticed any heat issues.

It doesn't seem like date of manufacture means that much unless you're buying an Elite.  I hope my box holds up until the 65nm switch.

The 65nm switch? Whats this all about?
2133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: RING OF UNHOLY DEATH! on: June 24, 2007, 07:42:02 PM
Are all these the original 360's?
Curious because I got mine earlier this year and no problems so far..I think the date of manufacture for mine is Nov. 06.

I don't use it much, so maybe thats why its been working fine.
Man, what a black eye these problems have been to MS-console division...tsk, tsk, tsk..........Hey Bill, why aren't heads-rolling?
Maybe they are..*shrug*

I'm guessing the lack of a traditional on-line experience with this title is keeping it from getting higher praise?
2135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Mass Effect -- WHEN?!?!?!?!?! on: June 22, 2007, 07:57:20 PM
Anyone know what the projected length of this game will be? I know its a hard thing to quantify, just a ball park figure is what I'm looking for.
IE: 20hrs, 40hrs, or may I dare believe more?
2136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Help me with my RPG problem... on: June 19, 2007, 11:03:47 AM
You just might be one of those guys who likes the "idea" of a RPG, but when it comes down to playing whats available it leaves you feeling flat.

It might be a case of games not living up to your "mental" picture of what you wish they were.

You have to buy upgrade parts that allow tuning.  In the description for some of the parts, you'll see a line that says "ADJUSTABLE" in big green letters.  Once you install that part, you'll be able to adjust that slider.

I knew, I just knew it........I knew it was me not checking things out well enough...

Thanks....

I'm not lazy, I just look for the easiest way of doing things...........
2138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Forza 2 tips and tricks on: June 15, 2007, 10:06:15 AM
When I go into car tuning the only thing I can tune is the tire pressure. None of the other parts work.
I can switch to them, but can't move the sliders etc...

?
2139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Car porn (Forza 2) on: June 09, 2007, 12:53:13 PM
No porn, but I do have a question. Do you guys basically stick with one or two cars in single play? Souping them up and just progressing with them? Or do you use the cars as they become un-locked?
Not sure what I should be spending my cash on.....Play it by ear I guess.....

I am really enjoying the single player of this game, but multiplayer has been real hit or miss.  I have tried tuning my car but usually end up just making it worse.  So while my car is a C550 just like the rest of the pack, my car has no chance against most others. 

Is there any way in Multi to limit the race to "stock" vehicles?
Thats the kind of racing I would be most interested in. For the main reason I haven't a clue about tuning virtual-cars.

By stock I mean no upgrades other than paint-jobs. I dunno, maybe I'm just sucking gas and have no Idea what i'm talking about.

I love WoW too, been playing ever since it came out.  They changed one of my toons names once, because I had the little line over the "e" in my name.  They're getting worse as the years go by, in my opinion....  I haven't played my toon in several days either.  But, anyway, back to your problem, yeah, that's a little harse I would think but, as Daehawk said, they don't give a damn about indviduals.  They're rolling in soo much money, they don't even care anymore, at least that's the way I feel.

Yeah I agree with your last statement..sure seems that way.

I got a compulsory name change notification way back at the start of WoW..

I had a little dwarf Warrior on Argent Dawn(role-playing) named, Bombastic...He would walk around all full of himself and cocky..
I thought it was a great role-playing name for a bigger-than-life Dwarf Warrior...
Shrug.

You were on an RP server.  That was 99.9999% of your problem right there.

IMO, if you play on an RP server, you may as well just beat yourself over the head with a shovel and demand that they ban you.  Why go for the slow bleed?  Get it done and over with right from the start.

Sad, but true. I tried reasoning with the RP-Nazis that kept sending me tells or putting me down in open chat....Why wouldn't a brash, big-mouthed Dwarf get a nick-name like, "Bombastic"...Like, "Hey, get a load of Mr. Bombastic over there, he thinks he's God's gift to women"....I don't in real life, honest.. paranoid

Anyway, Role-Playing Servers are a great concept but they don't work for the general public too well. Its ok if a few friends want to role-play, or a guild has strict requirements for it, but you can't run a server according to some made-up role-playing "rules"....Role-playing is a totally subjective thing..to mandate everyone play it a certain way would negate the very freedom people want...

So yeah, role-play on any server and save yourself grief by not going on a server designated, "Role-Playing"....Nazis on every cornet waiting for you to trip up in your role playing.......... ninja

That's awful!

2149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Colin McRae: DiRT [360/PS3/PC] demo on: June 01, 2007, 12:31:35 PM
One of the things I've felt in Flight Sims and Car sims that is lacking is real physical feed-back.
To make things realistic is one thing, but in a real car I can "feel" the movement, "sense" when I need to correct or whatever.

In a game you can't. Realism is great as long as tactile feedback is taken into account. There is a huge difference between a Sim and the real thing. There always will be until the "perfect" seat has been made.

So for me it boils down to fun. It can be as real as it gets but if it just frustrating and not fun, who cares?

But to each his own. I just really think the lack of real physical feed-back is a huge barrier between realism and arcadism.

What kinds of games do you play? What interests you? I really don't wanna see another Arclight 360 thread where the title reads "Sold my 360; looking to buy another one now :sigh:"

Haha, too much pride to do that... paranoid

I really dont like shooters...that I know
I really dont like squad based shooters....that I know
Ditto: Sports games, puzzle games, most racing games.

I like story driven RPG's...
I like a well done adventure game.
I like well done actiony RPG games...

Hold out for Mass Effect; you're best off selling it just before an announced price drop and after another major title release. biggrin

No, nothing so subtle as that. Really never use it. And like someone said if I can't find games to grab me now, I probably will never be able to justify having it. I just hate having something that I never use....seems wasteful... icon_wink

2160  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starcraft 2 confirmed! on: May 20, 2007, 08:37:46 PM

Quote from: Ridah on May 20, 2007, 08:08:14 PM

I don't think anyone who still actively plays WoW and enjoys it wants a WoS released any time soon, a lot of guilds would probably deteriorate because of members switching over and such. Essentially, WoS would damage the WoW community to an extent. No reason for that yet, wait until the WoW community has stopped growing, then start working on WoS or World of Diablo or World of Three Vikings or whatever other property Blizz wants to convert to cash. 

What makes you think the WoW community hasn't stopped growing. I see less and less people on-line. I've been on since the beginning and the drop in people, from my perspective, is fairly significant.
You will never see released figures on decline, only growth. And then I still think they skewed them some how to project viability and growth.
I'm not saying WoW is dead......Not by any stretch of the imagination...but I do think a stagnant period is burgeoning. You can read it, see it, sense it.
World of Starcraft could never have happened though while WoW is still viable. You don't compete with yourself in business...that just wont work.
But I think rather than World of Warcraft 2 down the road, I do hope they change gears and make another MMORPG based on something totally different from Warcraft.
