I hope this game leans more toward role-playing and story driven action...than squad based shooter-type.

To tell the truth since getting the 360 last week and picking up Gears of War, Ghost Recon, Call of Duty 3, I'm just about ready for a meaty role playing game.(did the Oblivion thing on the PC)...

I've kicked my WoW habit of over 2 years...May Jesus be praised for that... nod

But I'm having my doubts that the X-box, or that console-gaming in general can ever offer me the hours upon hours of entertainment that a PC online game could...



It's your first console, and you're basing those doubts upon playing FPS games.

There are plenty of games that will suck you in and take over your time.  Just not FPS' imho.  RPGs and Sandbox games are the ones that tend to do it.

My advice is to pick up and play Dead Rising.  That will occupy you for awhile.  I really liked Saint's Row, but ymmv.

On the old Xbox, I sunk more hours into KOTOR and Mercenaries than I choose to recall.

True I based my opinion on FPS games......but they were the ones everyone and their brothers were hollering about so I thought I should go with the most popular first........

I'll look into DR.............

So.........Bring on Mass Effect.......I'm already thirsting for a bit more from my console hobby.

Not surprising this thread is degrading fast. Hetz is on the bandwagon waving around the PS3's dominance on a year old game nobody cares about like some giant rubber wang.

Before it degrades more I just wanted to say:  Who the fuck cares?  Anyone that really wanted Oblivion has already played it on X, Y, or Z platform and probably doesn't care about this at all.   Anyone that hasn't played it already won't give a fuck about "Cache this, Texture that, loadtimes this, pea, tomato or mushroom soup that".

Its on the PS3 now, cool, it had another year of development, great, go play it, post that you like it and why you like it, and go play it some more and stop posting about how shitty Xbox360 owners have it.  You give the impression that you are more interested in posting and getting people heated than actually playing the goddamn game!


hmm, Hetz does have all the classic symptoms of Pot-stirring-Itis............

A word of advice. You really shouldn't ally yourself with Kobra. He is and has always been the King of the  stirthepot

/em backs slowly out of the room, eyes darting to and fro searching for a distraction before he draws too much attention from the two combatants.........

Ally of all, master of none, thats me boss........no worries, I'm as harmless as a drugged up Dove........ paranoid nod

Sounds great. My first foray into PC gaming was Flight Simming. Hung out at AVSIM for years.
Any well done Flight sim of any kind is extremely welcomed by me. thumbsup

I wouldn't call Ace Combat a flight sim.  It's a little bit more complex than something like Crimson Skies.  Lots of fun though. 

Well I never was one for splitting hairs. I use to see so many people argue this point back and forth on all the "hard-core" sim sights.
One man's sim, is another man's arcade shooter....You say potatoe...I say spud....same, same in the end.

No complaints from me.  I just don't want anyone new to the series to get the wrong impression. 

I dont think there is anything to worry about there....Console's will never have a "Flight Sim" sim....But then again, who knows?

2173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weeken Recap 3-19-2007: The Hangover Edition on: March 20, 2007, 01:15:38 PM
Gears of War...single player
Ghost Recon...single player
a bit of NFS-Carbon
a bit of Tiger Woods 07
A smattering of Call of Duty 3

And to top it off Titan Quest...

I know one thing for sure......you wont be seeing me in any DM's online..or what ever...the old reflexes are a thing of the past I'm afraid...they started going South at 40 and now they're all the way down in Mexico at 52............Oh well, I still love a good single player campaign..

Anyone have a really heavy AoE build?
This game just lends itself to killing multiple mobs at the same time. My Warfare-Defence guy isn't really up to that type of battling...

Think I'd like to try something a bit more AoE'ish..(Area of Effect)
2176  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Running with Scissors on: March 19, 2007, 08:43:29 PM
I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me that the guy who wrote this took an Acid trip in the 60's and never game down...

What a strange movie.

Artsy fartsy for the sake of being Artsy fartsy? I dunno, but I hope the guy is ok now.
2177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Titan Quest Expansion on: March 19, 2007, 04:12:37 PM
I just hit 20 with my first run through on normal. I picked a Warfare-Defence skill set.
I think I kinda fudged things with my picking of skills, and pumping up health-strength rather than something else. He struggles a bit when there are a mix of normal and yellow mobs attacking.

I got the skill in warfare as soon as I could that summons three ghost buddies...but the cool down timer on that is fairly long so I just end up saving that for  boss fights or what ever.

I guess I'll just try to muscle through with this guy and learn from my mistakes....

Or maybe I wont...I dont owe this guy anything... icon_evil......

Yeah, I can certainly see that X-box has its fair share of FPS type games.

Hey, I'm getting on in years, I hope some great game developer makes a few games with the twitch-challenged in mind.

I played Oblivion on the PC...I wonder if I'd enjoy it on this console?

2181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The day is here... on: March 17, 2007, 07:13:32 PM
Not sure why, but I started over again this morning and it let me sign in.

But I don't know why I would at the moment..........WoW do I suck with console controls.. eek
Keep in mind this is my first console, and I haven't played aim and twitch shoot games in ages.

On casual in the training segment of GoW....I swear I heard the bugs laughing behind some concrete pillar while I tried to aim and shoot at them...bastages!!!!

But I'm having a ton O' fun...........great buy....Oh, I'm running the games on a 27inch HDTV in 1080i...is that ok? Or should I drop down to 720?

I haven't fired up Call of Duty 3 yet...I played CoD-2 on the PC and loved it....So I should take a break from Gears and load up some good Nazi-killing fun...

I can see the PC whimpering over in the corner while I play the X-box. Cry all you want....No more money for you!!! (soup Nazi voice)
2182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The day is here... on: March 17, 2007, 08:03:06 AM
I ended up with......Ghost Recon, Gears of War, Call of duty 3....rented....Need for speed, carbon.......Tiger Woods PGA 07.

Still can't log-into x-box live.....
2183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The day is here... on: March 17, 2007, 01:15:51 AM
Wow, just Wow!!! Very blown away so far with the quality of the games I got...

But...........

When I try to sign in for X-box live..(I did the network check and everything is ok) after it tries for about 2 minutes or so I keep getting, "sorry account sign in is unavailable, try again later" message.

Is the sign-in down...or am I missing something?
2184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The day is here... on: March 16, 2007, 06:12:31 PM
Well, we came up with another way.............Although the thought of playing games on a 37inch surround sound TV was great...we're gonna just get a new 27inch HDTV for the bedroom...we needed a new one in there anyway.
I think in the long run its where I would prefer to go and play anyway.... icon_eek  umm, I mean games.... paranoid

So...off to Costco and get another Viewsonic(on sale)..the baby brother of the big one we just bought...

What the hay, you only live once...

Ok, got it home. Went to attach the blue, red, and green wire to the TV and noticed that the DVD-Sound system is using that slot. There is no other place to put these cables on the TV?

Do I need another cord?
2188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The day is here... on: March 16, 2007, 12:39:50 PM
I got the Viewsonic 37 inch...samsung surround sound.....Looks really nice. I don't have a digital camera or else I'd show it.
Nice deal at Cosco Canada...950cd. and 300cd. for the sound system.

I had to put off the X-box 360 purchase till today...So without further ado.........I'm off.....no, not like a rotten sack of potatoes....

So, I'll get Gears of War, Ghost Recon, RB-6, and probably a racing game......

Thanks for all the support you wankers... nod

Just got a 37inch. Viewsonic HDTV. I hooked up the Cable HD terminal box to it, and ran all the wires I was supplied to where they should be.
But I'm getting a very annoying hum coming from the TV speakers. Ive messed with the audio wires and what-not but I can't get rid of the humming. Any ideas?

Ok, I've put it off long enough. I'm picking up the HDTV and X-box 360 this morning. I must say I've developed a fair bit of trepidation after reading about all the X-box woes people are having.

I've put of console gaming for years, I hope my first foray into it has success.

Picking up my first console system today...XBox 360.......I will be hooking it up to my new HDTV....getting that today as well.

Now.....What game do I break my console virginity with? Gears of War seems to be all the rage.....Ghost Recon??....What would be the first game you would break your 360 in with?

If you are looking for games to showcase your new HDTV go with:

Gears of War
Ghost Recon 2

Thats great. Just so happens two of the local stores offering the X-box 360 pro package include one of those. I'll go with the package with GR-2, I think GoW would be cheaper to buy seeing as its older. I'm such a frugal shopper.... ninja

Those are the best looking games on the 360, IMO.

The problem with choosing to turn down graphical options to run a PC game smoothly comes from the fact that "I" know I've turned it down. PC's have a way of making you want to run everything at full power, no compromise. Of course they do or else you wouldn't see people saying they're sick of trying to keep up. Its like crack. What got you off yesterday will now take a bit more today...on and on it goes. The only way to kick a bad habit is to stop it all together... crybaby

What has Lotro done that is unique and original?

What would make you play and pay for this over other more established MMORPG's?

What would JRR Tolkien think of it.........How true to his vision is it?

The World.........Does it feel immense or crowded?

Character creation individuality...Is it City of Heroes good, or WoW bad?

Does the lack of magic make it seem a bit bland compared to more traditional fantasy based MMORPG's?
