5881  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / OXM has Jade Empire demo and review (9.4) on: March 12, 2005, 11:46:31 PM
At EB all magazines are destroyed at the end of the month and are not "in inventory".  Most EB's sell very few copies of magazines.

Ok, well lets see who all we have... I am willing as is Ascendent... the nice thing is it would allow us to do multiple systems if we ever wanted to do a different setting ie.. White Wolf, D&D, etc...
5883  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Anyone want to participate in an online pen and paper RPG? on: March 12, 2005, 10:10:32 PM
Hrmm, well Waldenbooks shows that it is still in print, just backordered.  I am going to check my Half Price Books in the area.  I recently picked up some old 2nd Edition D&D that I was missing, and they had original printing 1st edition D&D.  They had a pretty large selection but at the time I was only looking for D&D stuff.

Just real fast, turtle I was just saying that I am willing to spend the money to get the Fantasy Grounds software since I have no local people to RP with I was considering going with something online.  But I do understand where you are coming from.

There used to be some free online RPG systems such as WebRPG but I don't know if they are even still around in a free format or not.
5884  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Anyone want to participate in an online pen and paper RPG? on: March 12, 2005, 08:30:32 PM
Ascendent did you get a harcopy of the book, or did you dl the PDF?  I went looking today to try and find a print copy with no luck.
5885  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Anyone want to participate in an online pen and paper RPG? on: March 12, 2005, 05:01:56 AM
Sounds good to me... now as to how we would do this...I would be up for trying out that software.
5886  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / EQ2 Veterans I need your input! on: March 11, 2005, 01:04:29 PM
Enchanters are invaluable in my opinion.  Crowd Control is very different from EQ1 in that you don't pull a group of 5 then mez all but 1.  Usually an enchanter can only mez 1 to 2 adds (if I recall correctly), but enchanters do so much more to make a battle go smoothly.  As far as I am concerned I will take an enchanter in my group any day of the week.  Soloing may be a bit tough for an enchanter as thier damage output is low compared to a sorceror and summoner, but still very good nonetheless.
5887  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 2 Info (better sell that first one Tebunker...) on: March 10, 2005, 01:10:36 PM
Correct me if I am wrong, but I was told that app. 85% of PS2 games are actually on CD (or would fit onto CD format) not DVD.
5888  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / EQ2 Veterans I need your input! on: March 09, 2005, 06:02:42 PM
Well to be honest it comes down to style, and how you want to solo.  Monk/Guardian/Paladin/Berserker are all very capable soloers (only fighter classes I have experience with currently).  Of them all Paladin dies the least but generally takes the longest to kill anything.

Sorcerors and Summoners are both very solo friendly, sorceror kills quickly with incredibly high damage spells(typical root & nuke strategy), while the Summoner applies DOT's and lets thier pet tank.

Healers are all very solo friendly.

Scouts while they can be solo friendly were the most difficult for me personally to solo with.

Perhaps you can give us an idea of your playstyle, what you enjoy etc...
5889  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Anyone want to participate in an online pen and paper RPG? on: March 09, 2005, 01:29:03 PM
Wow that looks like a pretty decent product Ascendent.  Sadly turtle I am not familiar with any of the systems you listed... I have only ever done D&D and white wolf.
5890  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW's Patch Notes on: March 09, 2005, 01:15:49 PM
I am not sure on the number 6... however SOE just added thier 4th major live update to EQ2.  There has been very few if any patch, then repatch because of first patch situations that have come up.  A lot of what has been done has been balancing of characters, including some pretty incredible buffing up to casters.  They have added multiple zones, solo instances, group instances, increased solo xp twice, added a mentoring system, removed many reuse timers on failed instances, reduced group xp debt.  Overall they have listened to thier customers and are making the game that was already great that much better.  They have had a test server running since day one as well in order to test thier patches.  Coming the end of this month the first adventure pack will be released as well.  I am not here to put down Blizzard they are very succesful and have a tremendous track record, but I will defend SOE as they are doing a magnificent job with EQ2.  I don't care about the past for SOE as they have proven to me that they are not the same as when they worked on EQ1/SWG.
5891  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / you're next gen games will probably cost a lot more on: March 04, 2005, 10:10:30 PM
Basically what will happen for me is that I will only pay full price for sure thing games from developers I trust and want to support.  Other than that I will wait, thereby reducing the number of games I buy since I am less apt to buy a 1 year old game.
5892  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / A nice map, but something weird. on: March 04, 2005, 05:36:46 AM
Just out of curiousity, if you fell through the world, how would you know if you ended up somewhere you shouldn't be, and not some random point in a normal zone?
5893  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / And.. What will you play NEXT? (unreleased) on: February 24, 2005, 07:55:30 PM
Jade Empire and Freedom Force 2 are the next up for me.

Go to the tram station to get to kings row.  It is possible to run to Kings Row, but much easier to just take the T.
5896  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / COH Questsion on: February 19, 2005, 09:20:36 PM
Controller can be a lot of fun, but require a ton of patience to play.  Scrappers do some insane damage but truly are paper tanks in most situations.  Blasters are even better at dealing damage then a scrapper, but are even more frail.  I would personally not start a controller if you will be playing solo most of the time.. while it is possible to solo, it is very slow.  Blaster is probably the fastest soloer.  Tanker is a very good soloer, but not as fast at killing as a scrapper or blaster, but damn near impossible to die.

Well, I can say that since I last played the game, it is like night and day.  I am having a blast.  Anyone care to explain badges or that can point me to a good site with info on them?
5898  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / NHL Cancels Season on: February 17, 2005, 06:41:15 PM
Being from Pittsburgh, the Penguins are one of the few teams who lose less money while not operating then they would if a season started.  They desperately need a new arena to be viable.  They have a lot of good young talent in their system to be a good team in a few years and there is a decent fanbase still left in town, if the tickets weren't so darn expensive for old beat up seats.

You may have seen a walking ham sandwhich, however you would have then also killed what I would speculate was the mother of the baby boar.  While the meat would be nice they should focus more on fishing and other more easily renewable food sources, such as the garden that the korean woman is working on.

The whisper was saying It All Comes Around, which is what Duckett said right before dying once Sawyer realised he had been set up.  I loved Hurley when he was talking about Ethan and what would happen.

Aww.. come on now Ascendent... my 50th revision or so wasn't too bad... you still got that screenshot of disco loki?

I actually got some game cards for this for christmas from family so I am resubscribing.  For some reason all me characters are gone, but going to try starting back up on Virtue.  Been so long since I played, I spent 2 hours tonight trying to create a character.  And Ascendent you know how good I am at creating characters lol.

Hey Ascendant.. you still playing CoH?  I am thinking of jumping back in...

You got a personal message LE.  I hope you enjoy CoH, it truly is a wonderful game.
5905  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Help Needed! on: February 13, 2005, 12:45:48 AM
I was grounded, machine was disconnected from power source.  No ESD... I did find out from the owner of the machine that there were past problems with the motherboard (PS/2 ports are fried).  I took the machine to an old teacher of mine who is a wiz with machines and he confirmed that the memory slots were caput so I am replacing the Mobo, which is now even more of a headache.  Some of the connectors HP uses are proprietary and will not work with the new mobo so I have to replace them.  HP had the power switch, HDD Led and Power Led all wired to one connector and the pins on the old mobo were all in a row.  The new mobo has the pins in a different configuration, and I am not sure how to remedy this.  I also had to get a 3 pin Y connector in order to hook all the fans up as the new mobo only has 2 fan connectors and the machine has 3 fans.  Lastly the lead that connects the 2 USB ports up front has a connector on it that is different than what the new mobo uses so might have to replace that as well.

The clubs are a cakewalk, as they should be, they are all businessmen.  The diamonds ramp up th difficulty quite a bit.  Also starting with the diamonds many more faction missions have you going against another faction other than the NK.
5907  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 02/09/05 HOLY CRAP!!! on: February 10, 2005, 01:17:45 PM
You know, if someone hung me from the end of a rope and I somehow managed to live... I wouldn't beat them, I wouldn't interrogate them, I would kill them, no questions asked.  Ethan killed/nearly killed charlie, and took away the one thing that charlie loved on the island.  I don't see charlies actions as being irrational.
5908  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Discussion: Stranger's Wrath Review on: February 09, 2005, 10:12:08 PM
Very good review, I agree with much of it.  I personally find the camera to be a bit more annoying than you let on to while in third person, enough so to play a majority of the time in first person.  The lack of audible music at times is odd, but the sound effects are just great.  The boombats sound like donnie from the Wild Thornberries, and chippunks are hilarious.  It is fun to wander in town listening to folks talk, then headbutt em, collect some money and watch them run in fear.

There is actually a challenge in the first map towards the bottom where you first come into the area.  The challenge says something to the effect that Helicopters don't kill people, hurling cars with the helicopter wench does and you have to go out and pick up objects and toss them, it is great.
5911  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Good Super Bowl Commercials on: February 07, 2005, 03:28:26 AM
Personally I thought the comercials overall were lackluster this year.  I did appreciate the thank you to the troops commercial.  As far as funny the best I thought were the Ameriquest ones.
5912  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / After years of resisting, I finally broke down.... on: February 04, 2005, 01:59:35 PM
I am sure I am in the minoirty, but this game did absolutely nothing for me.  I played it for about an hour and gave up from boredom.

It is Pc2100 (266mhz) RAM.  PNY.  The system originally had 256 mb in it, in one bank the second bank empty.

Ok, tried reseating everything, still getting the same error.  I removed the RAM and booted up, got the same error with no RAM in the system.  I have 3 brand new chips, each chip gives the same error, is it somehow possible the RAM slots got fried?  (Have tried the RAM in slot 1 and slot 2)
5915  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Help Needed! on: February 03, 2005, 08:18:44 PM
Working on a friends machine, everything was going fine.  He wanted me to install a new USB 2.0 PCI card, so I cracked open the machine and started working.  He asked me if he could see what the RAM looked like, so I popped it out, showed him and popped it back in.  Now I turn on the machine, no output to the monitor, and I get one long beep, a pause then one long beep again, then a pause and this goes on and on.  I tried installing new RAM to no avail.  Any idea what is happening?  I am in panic mode here.  The system is an HP Pavilion 552W.  The motherboard is an Asus P4S-LA, but I can't find a manual for it online anywhere to interpret the beeps, although that is usually a ram issue or so I thought.  Please help!

5918  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / AVG 7.0 Free Edition on: January 26, 2005, 05:51:42 PM
Quick question to the gurus out there.  I am currently using AVG 7.0 Free Edition.  Lately I have been having difficulty getting update files to download.  I also run Zone Alarm Pro, but as far as I can tell ZA isn't preventing the update from downloading.  Does AVG use specific ports, is the download site just swamped at times, etc...?

Any help would be apprectiated, if you need any more info just let me know.
5919  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire worth getting? on: January 25, 2005, 04:21:55 PM
You know, I played Arcanum, loved it, encountered very few bugs.  I still play TOEE and have never had a single problem with it.  I have vampire and play it to death, have yet to encounter a bug and the performance is just fine, running at 1600x1200 max settings.  My machine is about a year old now, so not top of the line by any stretch of the imagination.

Is vampire perfect?  Far from it, and perhaps my opinion would be different if I encountered some of the bugs that others are having.
