5841  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Guild Wars Launches this week..who's in? on: April 29, 2005, 05:30:05 PM
Unfortunately you will be lucky to get past lvl 8 in the noob area since the mobs just become worth very little xp since highest lvl I have seen is lvl 4 I believe.
5842  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Guild Wars Launches this week..who's in? on: April 29, 2005, 03:17:01 PM
cool, we can hook up and cause some havok.... warrior primary would be nice to have around for me to heal heh.
5843  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Guild Wars Launches this week..who's in? on: April 29, 2005, 01:21:30 PM
Yeah that is why I posted in the OO thread... this is basically a hybrid genre... going into it thinking it is an MMORPG, or a diablo clone just doesn't work.  I think I am actually going to be restarting my character today, to go Monk/elementalist.

Yeah ChrisGwinn, it was me, don't worry I got booted at the same time as you did, was a blast though while it lasted... course now I am in the next part of the world, man is it brutal.  Another little gem I found that didn't seem to be documented... pressing "U" brings up a map that shows you where you have gone in a zone and you can click and drag within the map to scroll it around and see just how big the zone is.
5845  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Guild Wars Launches this week..who's in? on: April 27, 2005, 12:03:19 PM
I got the game and played some this morning... absolutely love it so far.. albiet I am not that far in.  I started a Monk named Arkon Sulastani.
5846  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wireless controllers - good or bad? on: April 25, 2005, 05:13:35 PM
Wavebirds are incredible, other wireless controllers I haven't had much luck with.  If they work as well as a wavebird then I am all for it.
5847  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire Character Choice on: April 22, 2005, 01:48:35 PM
Basically they start off with a template, however you can customize so that if you like the model for say a balanced char, but want to be magic, just customize it to have stats and styles you like as a magic char... at least that is my understanding of how it works.

Quote from: "Ender"
LE needs to stop the blizzard hate.  

He is like an ex-smoker that hates people that still smoke.  Just back away from WoW, it obviously isn't for you.  No need to spew venom everytime it is mentioned.


Hrmm sort of like Raven needs to do with SOE?

Lets see, there have been multiple free character transfers in EQ2... WoW transfers just started how long after thousands of people bitched because they couldn't play due to cues?  

EQ2 has had 1 paid content patch.... however they have had 6 major free content patches in addition to daily minor patches.

WoW and EQ2 both ban farmers etc... WoW denies that people use EBay, SOE recognizes that Ebay can't be stopped so facilitates legal transfers on only specific servers.

Beta - WoW was more a marketing demo where they didn't listen to beta player feedback... EQ2, I didn't buy the RTS nor play on Legends, yet I was in... odd....

Char Slots...EQ2 has 6 actually, which most still think is too low, personal preference, I only ever run 3 chars at max.
5849  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution - touchpad controllers? on: April 22, 2005, 12:31:43 PM
What exactly could they do with a touchpad to "revolutionize" games tho... it would be ... ooh look a rts... that I can sort of control with this touchpad instead of a regular controller...or yay a racer that I can't control because all I got is this touchpad.  I don't see the touchpad as being revolutionary like the dual shock was.
5850  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dialup Hunting -- any recommendations? on: April 21, 2005, 07:32:08 PM
I am fairly close to where you live, but have been on DSL for 3 years now.  Let me see what I can find in that price range.  I used to know a few different providers.

I would enjoy bathing if I could get more than 1/3 of my body in the water at one time.  My bathtub is faitly short so I fit the back half of my upper body under water, or just my legs under water, so showers it is for me.
5852  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / House 4/19 (spoilers I am sure) on: April 21, 2005, 02:42:20 PM
At this point I want to see a mass lynching of Chase.  Maybe set up a hospital gauntlet that he has to run through with people throwing used needles, scalpels at him, perhaps a medical waste swamp he has to wade through. He really pissed me off!
5853  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / House 4/19 (spoilers I am sure) on: April 21, 2005, 02:13:29 PM
Hehe.. I always thought it was cuddy... such as cuddly cute... but cutty... ouch agreed..nasty name for a doctor.  I guess the thing with Vogler that I loved, despite hating him was that it threw a wrench into the usual order of things.. while they would still go through the usual routine to diagnose the disease, there was an unkown with Vogler.  Now I am not sure what will happen... although I wonder what reprecussions there will be between House and Cutty with house knowing she voted to get rid of him initially.
5854  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / House 4/19 (spoilers I am sure) on: April 21, 2005, 12:59:31 PM
Hrmm good insight KD...I wonder tho now with Vogler gone, there is a gaping hole in the show.  As much as I hated Vogler, he really made me want to see what was going to happen each week between him and the hospital staff.  And for goodness sake House needs to go find Cameron.
5855  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution - touchpad controllers? on: April 21, 2005, 12:57:13 PM
I will never buy a game system that uses a touchpad controller... I absolutely abhor touchpads.  This is not a smart move for nintendo in my opinion if it is true.
5856  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / House 4/19 (spoilers I am sure) on: April 20, 2005, 11:48:49 PM
I think she said she started taking it at age 20, and she was now 39 if I remember correctly.  Just seemed odd to probe that but not advance it.
5857  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire - Official Impressions on: April 20, 2005, 05:00:15 PM
I think he was my favorite NPC interaction Atta, just wish I remembered his full name.
5858  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Sony opens MMO Twink-o-Matic on: April 20, 2005, 01:23:46 PM
In a way I don't have a problem with this... no matter how hard they try they won't be able to stop IGE/Ebay, so offer it yourself.
5859  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / House 4/19 (spoilers I am sure) on: April 20, 2005, 01:02:01 PM
Wow, what an episode... I both lost all respect for cuddy then regained it.  I have tremendous respect for Wilson as well now.  Thank god Vogler is gone, what an ass he was.  While the money for the hospital would have been great to have, it wasn't worth the price that came with it.  Loved the episode all in all.

As an aside, did they ever really develop the signifigance of the drug the woman was taking for incontenance?  House seemed rather interested in it, but then seemed to go nowhere or did I miss something.
5860  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire - Official Impressions on: April 19, 2005, 01:09:33 AM
Well, just finished the game, took me 18 hours 43 minutes.  I loved every last bit of it... I may have missed a few things here or there, but I didn't rush by any stretch of the imagination.  Really had a blast with this game, and loved the storyline.
5861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GameStop Acquires EB Games on: April 18, 2005, 04:51:07 PM
Quote from: "Driver"
I think this is great -- it moves games more into the mainstrean with the B&N ownership and get rid of EB Games, who overcharged, sell used items as new, and genrally suck.


So lets see, Eb will now overcharge just like gamestop does, (at least in my area), sell used games as new just like gamestop also does, and generally suck as all the local gamestops do.  In addition they will most likely get rid of a majority of PC games like the local gamestops have already done.

In my area this is a step in the wrong direction for gamers.
5862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire - Official Impressions on: April 16, 2005, 07:06:07 PM
I have yet to get a harmonic combo, I must suck or somethin heh.  I am really loving the game, in chapter 3 currently.  I think the best part has been an NPC I encountered in the Scholar's Garden of the city... wish I wrote his name down, absoultely fantastic writing for the character and encounter.  I am glad the combat isn't any more complex then it is... it wouldn't be an RPG to me then.  If I had to master the fighting like I would in a game like tekken I would not play the game... I just suck at pure fighting games.
5863  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire - Official Impressions on: April 15, 2005, 12:05:34 AM
Personally I love the combat in this game, much more than KOTOR combat, or teken type games.  Can anyone explain techniques?
5864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire - Official Impressions on: April 13, 2005, 08:04:15 PM
I am only 2 hours in but so far I love it.  I haven't had any framerate issues, I am really getting into my character, feeling for people I met etc...combat is a blast, not too tough but not too easy on default settings.  Storyline so far seems very good and engrossing.
5865  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The anything BUT Jade Empire discussion thread on: April 13, 2005, 01:30:05 AM
Well, got an hour in and I love it... although the wife made me stop to watch House.  What character is everyone using?  I am using the bonus character as I wanted to go magic and wanted to try first as a male character.  That said I am curious as to the other characters, for exammple transformation, what style character best makes use of it?
5866  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The anything BUT Jade Empire discussion thread on: April 12, 2005, 09:00:20 PM
Personally I wish Bioware would do both aspects of the genre, I am getting Jade Empire and think I will love it, but I also loved Baldur's Gate 1/2.  Both can coexist.
5867  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The anything BUT Jade Empire discussion thread on: April 07, 2005, 01:25:25 AM
I personally feel the the OXM demo will prove to not be overly representative of the full game.  It was supposed to be just a taste of the combat.
5868  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 04/06/05 on: April 07, 2005, 01:16:20 AM
Killer episode... any idea on when the next new episode/season finale is?  Can the show truly exist without Locke? Sure does look like they are gonna kill him off from the preview.  

One of my favorite lines was to the extent...

"Hurley if you faint..."

Was interesting to see Sawyer hand over the alchohol so quickly...
5869  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 3/30/05 - HOLY COW! (WBS shoutout) on: April 07, 2005, 01:03:19 AM
Ok, no thread yet for tonight... but man oh man... what an episode... and I will be pissed if Locke gets killed like the preview seems to imply.
5870  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Anyone want to participate in an online pen and paper RPG? on: April 05, 2005, 11:13:46 PM
Sent ya an email, look for one from [email protected].
5871  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 3/30/05 - HOLY COW! (WBS shoutout) on: March 31, 2005, 11:28:19 AM
So anyone else think Boone isn't going to be the one who dies?  The preview for next week seems to make it too obvious that we are supposed to think boone is bighting the dust.  I am still amazed this morning when I think about the episode.  I do remember seeing nigeria on the map, but didn't look close enough to be honest.
5872  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 3/30/05 - HOLY COW! (WBS shoutout) on: March 31, 2005, 02:35:20 AM
Man oh man, I can not even put in to words how much I loved this episode.  Locke is just outright incredible.  The pod lighting up at the end...then the previews...do you think jack saves boone?  I figured boone was gonna get injured due to how bloody he was in locke's dream.
5873  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 3/30/05 - HOLY COW! (WBS shoutout) on: March 30, 2005, 05:10:21 PM
Thank goodness... been missing this show.  I will be glued to my TV for sure tonight.  Hopefully the preview doesn't completely misrepresent the episode as has happened in the past.
5874  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone here watch the show House? on: March 30, 2005, 12:31:04 PM
Any chance I could get a spoilerific recap on last nights episode?  My stupid comcast DVR box only recorded the first 10 minutes for some reason.
5875  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone here watch the show House? on: March 26, 2005, 01:21:20 PM
In this past episode they actually said his first name, believe it was Edward.
5876  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DVD's, Extra Features, Whatnottery on: March 25, 2005, 05:29:45 PM
The extra features that I usually watch are things like deleted scenes... speaking of which... about a year/year and a half ago TBS or TNT showed an extended version of The Goonies... anyone know anything about this?  Would love to find an extended edition DVD of it.  ANd I assume eventually the Harry Potters will be released as extended editions.. I caught the extended edition of Sorcerors Stone on ABC Family and it had a lot of little extra scenes that made a difference in my opinion.
5877  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone here watch the show House? on: March 25, 2005, 05:27:24 PM
Thank goodness someone else feels that way... of course I suppose that is what they were aiming for when introducing him.  The contest of wills between him and house should be fun tho.  Am I the only one who thinks Jennifer Morrison is HOT!!?  Of course the actress that plays Cuddy is quite attractive as well heh.
5878  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone here watch the show House? on: March 25, 2005, 02:26:50 PM
So who else absolutely hates the new rich guy who basically bought control of the hospital?  Man only watched last weeks episode so far due to being busy and by the end I wanted to smack his fat ass through the TV.  Guess I am getting attached to the characters and don't like the new guy trying to mess with them heh.. smile
5879  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone here watch the show House? on: March 25, 2005, 02:17:30 PM
I thouroughly enjoy the show.  I have been a fan of Hugh Laurie since my wife introduced me to the britcom Jeeves and Wooster.  I try to make sure and either watch or tivo this every week.
5880  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Anyone want to participate in an online pen and paper RPG? on: March 16, 2005, 03:44:05 PM
Well with getting my new job, I am gone from 7:30 AM EST to about 5:00 PM EST, and I have church Sunday mornings.  Other than that I am fair game.
