1562  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40k: Assault on Black Reach on: November 06, 2008, 09:31:16 PM
I used to play Fantasy Battles, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, and a bit of 40k. Loved it. Hopefully I'll get some of my friends now to start...

Wow. I'd been learning GHWT since I thought the drums were supposed to be better and I likes the song list a bit more, but the sentiment here seems to be pretty overwhelmingly in RB2's favor.

Thankfully in regards to the note chart my wife plays med-hard and I play med, so that's at least a bit less of an issue. Well, unless i hear a compelling argument for GH (I'm still listening) I'll probably go GHWT.

1564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GHWT or Rock Band 2 on: November 05, 2008, 12:21:22 PM
Given that my wife and I do not have a drum kit or mic (only have previous GH games), which should we get for Christmas? We could always end up with both games, but definitely only want the instruments from one.
1565  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Comics] When will I learn? on: October 28, 2008, 03:11:35 AM
Well, if you do post them, I'll take a look. I'm doing comics, but my pull-list is only like 6 or 7 issues a month now, so it's not demanding too much money. Plus I still buy some tpbs. Of course my comic art collection is more pricey... although I've been good and selling things as of late in case I make any big future purchases.
1566  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: In which I pimp the new Fallout 3 site on: October 08, 2008, 08:36:05 PM
My main concern is that sites have indicated the game doesn't have the humor of the previous games... that was always nice to balance out the setting...
1567  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: CHUCK IS BACK! Chuck vs. The First Date Spoilers! on: October 07, 2008, 02:23:15 AM
It hasn't yet, which makes me sad  crybaby I miss it for Tae Kwon Do, and all I want to do afterwards is see Chuck, but the NBC gods are thwarting me.
1568  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: October 06, 2008, 09:27:01 PM
Just finished the game (about 50 hours for me). Had a good time pretty much all the way through. Go pick it up.

Even tactics was fun for a while.

Yup, caught this on hulu last night. Very nice to have the show back on.
1572  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Why are there no Warhammer Online Impressions thread? on: September 28, 2008, 02:38:42 AM
I'm enjoying it, despite the fact that I'm playing at like 10 fps until my new computer arrives (it came once... on its way back to be made right...). Can't wait until I level up for bigger scenarios and the sieges. My current system can barely do PQ and simple scenarios though. I think it would give up on those.
1573  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [WAR] GT Wanderers, please post your in-game names on: September 25, 2008, 03:48:29 AM
Tredfim - Engineer

I joined the forum and such a while back. In the game, do I just type /who wanderers and ask to join or what else do I have to do?
1574  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: The Wanderers & Warhammer Online on: September 24, 2008, 09:16:04 PM
OK, ready to go. Questions...

1) Can we still join the guild on Ostermark? If so, are there classes that are really needed (e.g. I was thinking Engineer for order)

2) Same question for Chaos (and what servers is the guild on)?
1575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: September 15, 2008, 02:30:42 AM
Where did you get 30k from? I know that is a lot below vgchartz's estimate.
1576  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: September 14, 2008, 03:06:53 AM
Anyone done with this? I'm at the point everyone is talking about the final battle tomorrow. Is that the end? Wondering if I can wait to look for more side quests or if I should do them now.

*** Update *** You can definitely go do the side quests at that point.
1577  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise on: September 13, 2008, 08:02:37 PM
If you have too many types of pinatas, sell some off. It's the best way to raise money anyways.
1578  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Friday Freebie - NHL 08 (X360) on: September 13, 2008, 01:06:25 PM
You got a backup PM
1579  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise on: September 12, 2008, 08:43:17 PM
Don't need to have played the first game, although it would certainly help you hit the ground running. Gameplay is almost identical outside of a few minor additions and edits. Even some of the animations and such are the same.
1580  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: September 12, 2008, 03:49:48 AM
I'm now about 2/3 of the way done (I think) and still enjoying it. Grab it if you have any interest.
1581  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: September 08, 2008, 09:32:50 PM
Nope, but  I haven't really looked. The world map works on once you have been to a place and I generally didn't have too much trouble finding the locations. Only once or twice where it was a bit too ambiguous for me.
1582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: September 06, 2008, 03:36:39 PM
Arg, finally hit another boss posing difficulties, at the end of the 2/3 mark. I wouldn't mind, but there is a really long discussion beforehand that you can't skip through very fast.
1583  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise on: September 06, 2008, 04:13:22 AM
Mine arrived today, but I'm in the middle of Tales of Vesperia... what to do...
1584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (9/1) on: September 01, 2008, 03:51:49 PM
Viva Pinata 2 is pre-ordered smile.
1585  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: $12 for Stranglehold for 360 unopened on: September 01, 2008, 12:56:42 PM
Taken smile. Not sure I have time for it now, but at the price I don't need to worry too much..
1586  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tales of Vesperia announced on: August 31, 2008, 04:44:49 AM
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.
1587  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.
1588  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.
1589  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...
1590  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...
1591  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.
1592  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer: Best fleshed out class, worst fleshed out class? on: August 26, 2008, 08:50:13 PM
I would note I was having great fun as an engineer during the preview weekend...
1593  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.
1594  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).
1595  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.
1596  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.
1598  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...

1599  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?
1600  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.
