1721  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying in September? on: September 03, 2007, 12:34:08 AM
Eternal Sonata and maybe Halo 3. Probably grab Stranglehold someday, but maybe after a price drop.
1722  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: September 02, 2007, 07:47:12 PM
Hmm, I have a bad feeling I'm going to play all the way through and end up with maybe 200 achievement points if that... Apparently I'm not doing that great on the secret achievements right now either after skimming it. Still having fun, but that annoys me :-p.
1723  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA] Streets of Rage 2 on: September 02, 2007, 01:49:32 PM
I remember playing this many a time on a friend's genesis. I will definitely pick it up one of these days.
1724  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: September 02, 2007, 04:34:05 AM
I'm just into the start of the second disc and I'm definitely enjoying it. Glad it has picked up a bit in terms of plot and I like having more characters in my party. I agree it is still too easy, but then again I can get annoyed if non-boss battles are killing me in other games too. Script isn't amazing, but still fun enough to keep me going.
1725  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stranglehold on: September 01, 2007, 04:02:38 AM
Although they did think the singler-player was fun enough to play multiple times.
1726  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: August 29, 2007, 10:06:23 PM
I'm enjoying it so far (only about 1 1/2 hours in).  Fairly standard JRPG fare, but decent cutscenes and I like the style. Agree on it being easy so far though.
1727  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Amazon - Xbox 360 HD DVD + 9 FREE Movies on: August 28, 2007, 09:09:14 PM
Wow, I might do it... even though I don't need the player. The player and hd-dvds are selling for a lot on ebay, so you can probably do this, keep 4 movies, and get your money back with the rest.
1728  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: August 28, 2007, 09:07:36 PM
Best Buy and Circuit city both say it will be in tomorrow, so I'll hopefully grab it then.
1729  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Any Blue Dragon Deals? on: August 27, 2007, 03:13:18 AM
Anyone know if there are any special sales this week for it?
1730  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: BestBuy 4 dollar movies on: August 27, 2007, 03:12:46 AM
These deals online only or in store too?
1731  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox 360 HD DVD Player on: August 25, 2007, 03:15:06 PM
Yeah, it has a couple usb slots on the back, so you can plug in the adapter, GH cords, etc into it.

1732  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (8/20) on: August 21, 2007, 01:52:54 AM
Nothing. Like Lockdown I'll probably try to pick up Bioshock used down the road.
1733  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Genres You Used To Love, But No Longer Do on: August 21, 2007, 01:43:16 AM
RTS games would be my #1. I played so much Dune II, Warcraft, Warcraft 2, Starcraft, C&C Red Alert, AoE, etc back in the day... but I haven't really gotten into one in a long time. Enjoyed Dawn of War and Company of Heroes for a while but they didn't last for me. I think I just burned out, but Starcraft 2 will be the real test smile.

FPS - For some reason I don't have the patience and stamina for these much anymore. Story is always too little and it requires me to be too focused all the time, especially with console controls.  I still like some multiplayer action, but single player rarely holds me for long in the genre.
1734  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Two Worlds. anyone on board? on: August 18, 2007, 04:53:26 PM
Yeah, I'm on the review fence.  We'll see. Definitely not ruling it out though.

Hmm, I'm currently re-watching at my friend's house already... but so cheap... and he'd be so jealous compared to what he paid... must resist
1736  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 5 Mythos Beta Invites on: August 13, 2007, 02:02:55 AM
Hey, I'm in if you can send me an invite. Haven't beta'd a game for a while... I miss it.

If I buy it it'll definitely be hd-dvd. The video commentary where they show how they shot scenes would be awesome.
1738  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata question on: July 29, 2007, 09:49:21 PM
Once you play a bit more you'll find it easier to handle.  For one you'll know what you're doing and what you want to collect/grow, secondly you'll probably start limiting your pinatas to some degree.  By controlling the kinds you can get rid of fights and things that add to the distraction. Same with totems that stop the bad red creatures from coming.
1739  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / HD-DVD player for Xbox 360 - lower price, 5 free movies on: July 27, 2007, 07:47:42 PM
If you haven't heard, the price is being dropped by $20 and it will come with 5 free movies (from a list of 15).

Movies are listed here:
http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/hddvd/data/pdf/Toshiba_Online_Rebate_R08.pdf

If anyone has been on the fence, this is a great deal. $180 or whatever for the player + 5 hd-dvd movies.

1740  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Blue Dragon demo up! on: July 27, 2007, 07:42:31 PM
I was also a litle dissapointed in the demo, but I'm still planning to buy it. I think it is hard to get into an RPG demo in random dungeons when you don't know about or care about the storyline...
1741  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Vote for my Brother's Band by Friday on: July 26, 2007, 09:06:23 PM
Hey guys, while the video they have on Fox's site isn't a great performance, my brother's Band (Juniper Lane) is in the running to get an audition in front of the American Idol producers for their new show "Great American Band".  They need to win this poll on Fox45 in Baltimore's site though.  (one entry per IP address) to get the guaranteed audition.

Also, for those in the DC area... they're having their newCD release party at the 9:30 club on Saturday August 18th.

Yeah, I doubt it's true... but if it is I might be out to grab one for my smaller hdtv...
1746  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 Price drop - MS Strikes back on: July 10, 2007, 10:57:45 AM
I think he meant $399 for the elite...
1747  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Xbox 360 warranty improvements on: July 06, 2007, 02:09:43 AM
Thankfully I still haven't had any issues (1 1/2 years and counting), but this past week it has started making a weird clicking noise occasionally while the drive is working hard which has me worried...
1748  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Overlords on: June 29, 2007, 02:48:47 AM
No, but I thought it was part of the deal from publishers that retailers weren't allowed to sell over MSRP.

1752  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Favorite XBLA titles? on: June 13, 2007, 11:42:22 AM
Well, I've probably played worms more than any other game on my xbox sadly enough.  So I'll go with multiplayer worms. And FYI, I could do multiplayer Catan sometime (gamertag Azhag2). Most of my other XBLA games have been so-so.  I need to stop buying the really old retro games though...
1753  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 network issues on: June 11, 2007, 09:19:36 PM
Questions... 1) does anyone have particularly good router suggestiosn for making sure it reaches down two levels in the house. 2) What would I have to do to make a new router plug into and work with my verizon setup?

Also, mod, want to move this to hardware hell?

Well, also pedigree of Final Fantasy creator and Dragonball Z creator.
1755  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 network issues on: June 10, 2007, 06:14:56 PM
Ok, so last week my wireless network started having issues.  I'm running my network through the Westell 327W that came with my Verizon DSL and am using WEP.  Up until now when there was an issue, turning the Westell off and on again fixed the issue.

What my 360 says... it is saying there is no network bridge (the second option in the test).  It appears to be properly set up with the right SSID and settings still.  For my network it shows a green light for "link" and a flashing yellow light for "act on".  What does this mean exactly?

My wife's computer also is now having issues (starting at the same time I believe).  It is in the basement, further away, and is having marginal/low connections, but it has never had a real strong connection from down there.  It also appears to still sort of work (it will start to download a website and gets a bit before seeming to stop).

Does anyone have ideas on what to do?  What do the light colors mean in the xbox 360 diagnostics? Should I try changing my channel or try removing WEP or something?  Do you think my Westell gear is hosed? I'd really like to get xbox live working again...
1756  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 rpgs on: June 06, 2007, 09:46:53 PM
So, earlier in the year I was excited about the big RPGs being spread out in Microsoft's schedule... Now I'm looking at amazon and Blue Dragon, Mass Effect, and Eternal Sonata are all coming out within three weeks of one another? And then we'll have a 6 months drought of good rpgs probably. ARG!

Ok, doing some spring cleaning... these are for sale or trade. Prices all include shipping, and I'm willing to deal a little (especially if you want multiple items). Everything is used to some degree, but all should be in perfect working order. I can take payment via paypal, cash, money order, or check if really necessary. I've added a bunch more PC games as well as games I'm interested in trading for.

Picking up:
Complete Matrix Trilogy (HD-DVD)
Jack of all Trades
Sliders: Seasons 1 and 2
a workout video for my wife

All for $95, not too shabby. (and even with the discount most of that is the matrix, hehe).  Don't think I would have bought that without the deal.

I was going to get this for 360 but someone here had it for sale for $25 including shipping on PC... so I couldn't justify the bigger cost.  I'm enjoying it so far on the PC.
