1561  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...

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.
1563  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.
1567  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.

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?
1569  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)?
1570  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.
1571  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.
1572  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.
1573  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Friday Freebie - NHL 08 (X360) on: September 13, 2008, 01:06:25 PM
You got a backup PM
1574  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.
1575  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.
1576  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.
1577  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.
1578  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...
1579  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.
1580  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..
1581  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.
1582  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.
1583  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.
1584  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...
1585  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...
1586  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.
1587  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...
1588  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.
1589  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).
1590  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.
1591  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.
1593  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...

1594  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?
1595  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.
1596  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
1597  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Too Human demo coming next week on: August 21, 2008, 12:05:34 AM
Any impressions?
1598  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.
1599  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.
1600  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.
