Taken smile. Not sure I have time for it now, but at the price I don't need to worry too much..

Well, after I leveled up a bit it wasn't too bad. Personally I found Azure Wold Strike too slow (since he can interrupt it part way through). Things are moving swiftly/smoothly once again smile.
1563  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: $12 for Stranglehold for 360 unopened on: August 31, 2008, 12:54:11 AM
If that fell through let me know.
1564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: August 31, 2008, 12:05:04 AM
I'm level 17 and failing :-p. I feel like I should be able to do it now as I figure out a pattern but then it falls apart, but it hasn't happened yet. And btw, wow, you must be doing a lot of random battles to be low 20s already.
1565  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: August 30, 2008, 11:51:55 PM
FYI. The wolf boss in the hills is kicking my ass...
1566  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: August 30, 2008, 03:25:25 AM
Only about 2 1/2 hours in, but I'm having fun. Perhaps not original, but still a good way to spend the long weekend. Definitely a good procrastinator vs homework for grad school...
1567  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Went ahead and bought the new cpu! on: August 28, 2008, 08:52:47 PM
Not really at this point. Dual might still be faster in many cases for games due to higher clock. But for longevity purposes I figure this hedges my bets. Plus it's not really much more expensive.

I would note I was having great fun as an engineer during the preview weekend...
1569  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Went ahead and bought the new cpu! on: August 24, 2008, 07:44:31 PM
Hehe, true, didn't think about that smile. But I've been good about selling old stuff on ebay or trading here, and I've been xbox 360 focused the past year and a half, so I should be good for now.
1570  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 24, 2008, 07:33:55 PM
Not really sure Arkon... just says order recieved at this point (I don't think it'll let me know til tomorrow probably).
1571  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 24, 2008, 04:35:08 PM
Ah, I've given in and ordered a new computer as well, can't wait. And given the terribleness of my current computer in running this during the preview weekend it will be none too soon.
1572  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Thougts on cyberpower mid-level gaming models? (quick thoughts appreciated) on: August 24, 2008, 02:35:51 PM
Thanks for the comment. I decided to go ahead and order one. Thankfully my wife had seen me trying to play the Warhammer Online beta and took pity on me... I ended up bumping up the CPU and video card memory since I'd rather not have to deal with upgrading for a long while. Of course now I'm not getting anything for B-day or Christmas... but I'll have a nice cpu to play with so what more will I need?

I can't resist a good Tomb Raider game. Day one purchase for me.
1574  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Went ahead and bought the new cpu! on: August 24, 2008, 02:54:53 AM
Looking at the mid-level intel gaming pcs from cyberpower. Hoping to possibly put in an order tomorrow, so any quick thoughts are appreciated.

http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/

Looking at the 9800 GT model... any problems you see? Do I have to do anything special with the watercooling (never dealt with it before)... thoughts on that vs a good/silent regular fan?

Also, NVIDIA vs ATI... vista vs XP. Leaning Vista home premium and stick with the NVIDIA 9800 GT 512 mb it has by default.

And any need to extra fans or case upgrades?

Sorry, been a while since I bought one...

1575  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 23, 2008, 07:46:20 PM
Question... do characters survive after beta or should I just play a bunch of variety so I know what I want to play when it starts for real?
1576  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 23, 2008, 01:11:47 PM
Ok, it was just the drivers. Now it runs (though not very well). My wife was unimpressed though, so I might be able to talk her into a new computer! Hehe, that would work out nicely. Having fun with it, but as I said... it doesn't run particularly well and I think it set graphics to their worst.
1577  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 23, 2008, 03:32:05 AM
Ok, trying to play for first time, getting an error "Failed to create render device - application will now terminate". Any idea what drivers etc are required? Mine haven't been updated in a while probably, but I don't recall any similar issues... Can my system even work?

I also have an older system that is obviously not ideal (though I could re-download to my wife's which is a bit newer).

Athlon XP 2800
1GB ram
Radeon X800 GTO

Any impressions?
1579  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Forgotten Realms recommendations? on: August 19, 2008, 11:08:21 PM
I haven't read them in a long time, but I liked the Shannara books and Raymond Feist's Krondor books. On the darker side is Robin Hobbs' Assaisin series.
1580  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (8/18) on: August 19, 2008, 08:03:48 PM
Too Human reviews are all over the map. Really wide array of reviews.
1581  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Too Human demo coming next week on: August 19, 2008, 07:43:59 PM
Wow, I haven't seen a game get so widespread an array of reviews in a while. The reviews are all over the map on this one.
1582  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: EBGames.com can suck it... on: August 11, 2008, 03:39:55 AM
Ok, I figured out how to find the code on amazon... now it is listed in my "promotional codes and associations" section. Should anything else happen? Or can I not get in until a later date?
1583  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata 2 preorders for $37 @ NewEgg on: August 10, 2008, 05:37:04 PM
Yeah, if they end up at $40 they might be figuring that since it is the casual market they might be able to make more overall by having a lower price. But there's still inconsistency between the online sites that makes it hard to tell what is happening with the pricing.
1584  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata 2 preorders for $37 @ NewEgg on: August 10, 2008, 01:55:38 PM
It's looking like $40 could be the MSRP on Banjo, though it's hard to tell. I see Viva listed for $40 at one or two and $60 at other places. In any case, you still can't be hurt by the newegg prices.
1585  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata 2 preorders for $37 @ NewEgg on: August 09, 2008, 11:04:17 PM
Awesome, thanks! I just pre-ordered Viva Pinata 2. Waiting on reviews for Banjo.

? What is so not fun? Just gotta be using the right characters. Yoshimitsu is always a good time.
1587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Soul Calibur IV Release Thread on: July 31, 2008, 10:57:19 AM
Ah, I probably accidently hit them in the middle of a combo or something... I'll have to restrain myself to get this to work.
1588  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Soul Calibur IV Release Thread on: July 31, 2008, 03:17:19 AM
Yeah, I haven't gotten it to work yet either... we must be doing it at the wrong time... can anyone fully explain the trigger for when it will work (beyond them being red).
1589  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Soul Calibur IV Release Thread on: July 30, 2008, 12:27:57 AM
Enjoying it so far. OK, I am probably an idiot, but what do I have to do to get a critical finish? I'll have the opponent in what seems like red and hit all the buttons and nothing happens. Until they smack me for standing there like an idiot. Can I not do it the first time they are red or something?

Oh, and Yoda is a bit annoying to play against, but I didn't find him to be that over powerful.
1590  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] X Files: I want to believe...I just don't want to see your movie on: July 28, 2008, 09:09:42 PM
Quality of sound/visuals is fine, but I didn't think there was anything in it that necessitated the big screen. Really not that many wide open shots or anything. Definitely more fun to see big screen still, but not really needed.
1591  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Soul Caliber IV - Are you buying it? on: July 28, 2008, 11:03:50 AM
I'm on the fence... but I see myself likely giving in and grabbing it for the 360.
1592  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] X Files: I want to believe...I just don't want to see your movie on: July 26, 2008, 01:26:36 PM
Saw it. I give it a B for enjoability for fans due to nostalgia, probably a C as a movie for people that don't miss the show. It explains a few things from the show, but not a ton as it is pretty standalone.

Not that I have overly high expectations, but I'm going with a few friends tonight. If I have any grand thoughts I'll post afterwards.
1595  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBox originals on 360 on: July 22, 2008, 01:20:48 AM
I don't remember having any issues playing Fables from a disc. And I haven't had any problems with Pirates! via xbox originals.

Gotta say the 3rd act was a bit of a letdown. I didn't think the songs were as good and I thought the twists were unnecessary, Joss just can't help himself... overall, still a lot of fun though. I'm just waiting to see what the extras will be on the dvd they are putting together!
