I can't resist a good Tomb Raider game. Day one purchase for me.
1642  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...

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?
1644  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.
1645  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?
1647  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.
1648  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.
1649  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.
1650  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?
1651  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.
1652  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.
1653  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.
1655  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.
1656  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).
1657  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.
1658  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.
1659  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.
1660  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.

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!

Thanks guys, just a bump since there is only like one more day and they are barely in 3rd place (Coldplay chooses from the top 3). Tell your friends to vote too!
1672  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online Guild Beta on: July 14, 2008, 07:48:37 PM
Any idea when the open beta will be? I pre-ordered too but haven't heard anything or gotten my info.

I didn't see anything like that in the contest rules... dunno though. Will look into it, hehe.

Hey, my brother's band is in a contest to open for Coldplay this summer in DC. That would be awesome, so vote for them (plus, they would get some tickets for relatives, hehe)! They're like the 11th down (girl lead), song is Take Me Home.

Thanks!

Ok, I got it, yeah the twist thing is what had me worried when I started doing it.

Side question, is it free for UPS to pick it up here or should I drop it off there?

1679  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 repair question on: June 30, 2008, 09:08:37 PM
Sigh, I'll play with it more. Mine did not come with the foam protruding from the horizontal plane... they were turned inward so it looks more two dimensional.
1680  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 repair question on: June 30, 2008, 08:53:53 PM
I know what it is SUPPOSED to look like... but the things start on the inside of the rectangular frame of the foam...
