6801  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Seriously?! Jaguar wants a handout too?! on: November 25, 2008, 06:55:04 PM
they get my no vote simply because of the douchebag way they insist on saying "jaguar". 

really though, a luxury brand complaining about financial hardships makes me smile.  these people need to do this.

i think it's safe to say that nobody can really predict where the market will be with 100% certainty.

that's an interesting experiment hark. 

i will be on tonight to play this.  i need my fix. 

this would have to be the week when the wife takes vacation days.  i get reduced gaming hours when she's home.
6805  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA] Shred Nebula on: November 25, 2008, 06:35:47 PM
not sure how i missed this, but it sounds interesting.  i'll give the demo a try. 

thanks for the heads up.

do they make you load all the lost odyssey discs before you can play?  if so, that's just lazy stupidity right there.  and sadly, one that i was planning on loading up.  yeah, the 120gb drive will hold it, but damn that's a huge chunk of space right there.
6807  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 impressions thread on: November 25, 2008, 06:29:15 PM
damn, this is cool news.  thanks for posting that kathode.  it means the push for me to get the pc version just got moved up.  i expect some great mods on the horizon. 

the scenarios sound pretty kick ass too, but i wish the main quest extension was first, not last.
6808  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Xbox Experience on: November 25, 2008, 01:27:52 AM
eurogamer has a great article comparing hdd loads against disc loads. 

they found some great results (hl2) and some minimal ones, and also saw where developers have implemented great 'shadow loading' procedures, ie load the level while the cinematic loads (gow2) to surprisingly worse load times (halo 3). 

sadly, no great increase was made when it came to Elevator Riding Extreme aka mass effect.

OK, so I got my Netflix rental today, and started watching it.  within the first 10 minutes we have a pretty funny scene about Islam and then a bit later we get to see Dave Foley... complete with full frontal nudity  eek

I'll watch more after my eyes grow back.

no wonder it only released in 4 theaters. 

i had completely forgotten about this mess until i saw it listed in the on-demand section. 

so, how bad was it in the end?

I can agree that DHP has more impact, but after about 10 minutes it didn't affect me anymore.

me either, and at times, i almost thought it was him.   not saying he did a bad job or anything, but dhp's voice fits the character perfectly.  coincidentally, just like his "brother" did for Beast in x-men 3.

which makes the lack of a director's cut all the more disappointing.  probably holding on to that for a 2nd chance next year.

what's stupid about the whole thing is i don't remember it being this obvious in cod 1.  it had some awful moments at higher difficulties, (russian level in the building surrounded by tanks), but you weren't always the "one man in the army worth" anything/killing either.

We would be frustrated to still be in Afghanistan, but the American people would accept it much better than what has gone on with Iraq.

There would still be saber rattling towards Iraq but with Iran getting the bomb? both Iraq and the US would be looking at them.

Bush would be leaving the presidency dis-liked by the left but still with some respect. McCain may have won the presidency.

this sounds perfectly reasonable.  bush's approval rating wouldn't be approaching single digits. 

i have to wonder, how would this have affected the current economic crisis?  slowdown in housing market would still have occurred but would not big enough to drag down the big banks. 

biggest change would be not looking a dem controlled legislative branch though. 
6815  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty World at War (360) impressions on: November 24, 2008, 07:46:27 PM
yup.  there's one part in particular where only you trigger a bonzai attack.  no quantity of ai friends running past this guy get his attention, just you.  that whole level was full of obvious trigger points.

6817  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movies]hellboy 2 on: November 24, 2008, 07:43:02 PM
wife and i saw this last night, and while it was pretty good, i felt it came off more like a harry potter meets m.i.b. and it wasn't written as well.  the story took some detours a little too far, and the whole spear point business fell flat.  i also miss the extra cast that were in hb1 and that niles crane didn't voice abe this time.  it all felt like they had to cut out too much and picked up some of the threads while dropping the more important ones. 

i did like the story sequence though;  the animation style was pretty cool and i would watch a feature length film using it.

not only is veteran a ridiculously stupid exercise in "how high can you get your blood boiling", but hardened is almost as bad.  i have been trudging through the sp on hardened and it's easily taking me 1.5 times as long to get past.  areas like the sniper battle in stalingrad took half a night to get past due to the ai's one shot kill vs my two hits plus his instantly knowing exactly where i was at all times bs.  the pacific mission with you in the trenches and a flamethrower was also pretty puzzle-like as you had to know in advance where the enemy would pop up.  on top of that, the ai always exhibits two flaws.  enemies target you over your buddies whenever possible, even when you are 1/10th exposed as they are, and your buddies take 5x as many rounds to kill anyone, even an enemy in open cover. 

if i hadn't already committed to 2/3rds of the campaign, i would be restarting on normal.  i won't bother with veteran unless i get the need to scream insanities at a tv screen and replace a controller.

6821  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/24) on: November 24, 2008, 07:05:20 PM
chrono trigger goes on the xmas list.  nothing to buy though, as i already have a used game coming from gamefly, plus the two rentals i have now.

MidnightClub: LA $40
Star Wars Force Unleashed $30

http://www.amazon.com/gp/goldbox/ref=cs_top_nav_gb27

Midnight Club is deal of the day. Star Wars is limited time, 3 hours left!

that's a great price on tfu.  if you haven't played this yet, i recommend it.  great game and sadly overlooked after the reviews hit the net.
6825  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: 3DO system FOUND on: November 24, 2008, 06:42:48 PM
59 games and it didn't have the one you wanted?  geez, how many games did they make for that system anyways? biggrin

agreed though.  it was an overlooked gem imo.

6832  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Neb. finally gets the law right. on: November 22, 2008, 12:22:34 AM
after a few months of nebraska law having the biggest loop-hole in history, they have closed it down.  no more will we hear of children and teenagers being left at hospitals.  the limit is 1 month now. 

one source of many

this part hurts though:
Quote
Hospital officials have described children crying hysterically as they pleaded with their parents not to leave them.

as rick james would say, that's cold blooded.  as a father of two, i cannot fathom being in the position to just walk away with my kids in the hands of strangers.  i sympathize that there are problems, but that first step away is one you should never take. 
6833  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Looking for Game Cube and Resident Evil Games on: November 21, 2008, 09:49:05 PM
i have re4 for the gc if you want it.  at this point, i doubt i'll ever play it.  still pretty much brand new, only played once or twice. 

new price is around $20.

I do however absolutely love the install to HDD and it is amazing the difference it makes with noise.  One of my co-workers said he never realized some of the ambient sounds that were in FO3 until he did that.

i haven't noticed that, but i will check it when i get the chance.  seems odd that ambient sound fx wouldn't play before though.

I think he was indicating the DVD drive was so loud that he never actually noticed the ambient sounds over the roar of the DVD drive.

ah. biggrin  got it.  i always use headphones anyways.

how about x3 post the last patch?  i hear it makes the game a lot more starter friendly

ORLY?  I might have to investigate that.

here's the thread on it.

note, this isn't a patch like i thought, but an expansion.  the last big free patch did help though, iirc.
