Yeah, it has a couple usb slots on the back, so you can plug in the adapter, GH cords, etc into it.

Nothing. Like Lockdown I'll probably try to pick up Bioshock used down the road.
1763  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.
1764  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

If I buy it it'll definitely be hd-dvd. The video commentary where they show how they shot scenes would be awesome.
1768  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.
1769  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.

1770  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...

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.

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...
1778  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.

1782  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...
1783  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?

1785  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...
1786  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.

Arg, thanks a lot... I'd already wasted too much money this month!

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 may grab it, haven't decided yet.  What I AM grabbing is the Worms downloadable content tomorrow...
1790  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C 3 360 Impressions Thread. on: May 11, 2007, 11:07:07 PM
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.
1791  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA] Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe on: May 06, 2007, 04:07:20 PM
I loved this game on Amiga maybe? I'm looking forward to see some screens of the update graphics mode.  Don't expect a ton, but same game with some bumped up graphics would be nice.

Catan.  I'll wait for reviews before I make any decisions on Spider-man 3.
1794  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Another Launch 360 dies - not likely going to replace it on: April 29, 2007, 09:44:22 PM
You can still send it in for fixing (at $180 or whatever), can't you?  And that would come with a new warranty.
1795  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FS: Nintendo Wii on: April 29, 2007, 02:19:01 PM
Hehe, I would... but it'd only be to resell it.  So I'll pass and let you go the ebay route if no one pounces on it here.
1796  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS2] Tomb Raider Anniversary screens on: April 29, 2007, 02:16:43 PM
No one should post about this... I'm still pissed about it not being released for next-gen.  Who releases one next gen game (Legends) and then drops down for the next one?

Hmm, thanks guys.  I'm thinking I'll still hold on Sam and Max until it is done.  I might grab Dreamfall or one of the Runaway games though. Do you need to haved played the first Runaway for the second to make sense?
