while it sounds like a good game, srpgs are pretty much an achilles heel for me.  i play about 2 hours worth and then get bored/wander off.

ygpm re paypal.

when was this originally going to come out?  i am looking forward to this too. 

btw, where the H is stalker: clear skies?!  after watching i am legend, i really like the thought of playing with guns in a post apoc wasteland.

I believe it was May for FC2, and as far as I know STALKER: Clear Sky is still slated for May 2008 too.

damn, now i wish i hadn't known that.  it was so close to release.  i guess it won't be competing with stalker at least for my game time.

Beta is over on the 25th of April

ATB, I think you'd like the game a lot

Killing heli's is a bit rough, but they aren't really that effective either so it's not terrible for me.  There are AA guns and vehicles that work really well though.

still a bit of time then.  damn, i wish i knew when i'd get a chance to play this.  ATB, you are on deck my man.

considering i haven't got a system to play on, can someone tell me how long the beta will last?  if it's not going to go on beyond me getting the 360 back, i might as well give someone else the beta key.

8694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What should I buy next? on: March 26, 2008, 09:50:02 PM
i can recommend burnout paradise.  fun fun racing game with a lot of stuff to do.  the free roam city is a bit polarizing among burnout vets though.  personally, i like it.  it takes out a lot of the checklist race selection of the previous versions and gives you the option to choose your own race whenever you like.  it also drops the static car choice you find in many of the races in favor of letting you pick whatever car you have unlocked for any race.

the mp is quite nice and it's one of the best arcade racers i've played. 
8695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MS resets boosted Gamerscore to zero lables as cheater on: March 26, 2008, 12:18:02 AM
i think they look for points per hour played.  on one of the sites i have checked for achievement posts, there's always threads about how to rack up quick points either through gaming the system or using cheats to speed it up.

Easy 7,000G in 5 hours
there was also threads on how to set up mp sessions to get x hours played achievements.

those are what i consider grey areas, and i don't see any buzz there about nuked accounts (yet) so ms may not think so too.

360gamesaves.com was mentioned, and from the sound of it, these guys actively work to glitch games for easy points.  i guess you can also boost up other people in mp too.
8696  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Battlefield: Bad Company beta on: March 25, 2008, 11:14:28 PM

8699  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: BSG QUESTION: When to Watch the BSG: Razor Mini-movie? on: March 25, 2008, 09:42:16 PM
when you compare the high tension of say, '33' against the last few episodes you see how relaxed everything has become.  instead of the threat of extermination, you get touchy-feely, preachy cylons.  or the arrival of adm cain, or even the start of s3. 

the last half of s3 was a drain until the last episode or two.  it's like they started looking at bad tng episodes about the half klingon kid or whoopie's character.  i have the set and i may just skip from the first disc to the last.
8700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: late to the party. Bioshock on: March 25, 2008, 07:56:02 PM
if they could have added more variety to the hacking, or at least increased the complexity of later puzzles, i would have enjoyed it.  as it was, i was very happy to get the auto hack for certain items.  and yes, the last level and the boss fight detract from the overall awesomeness, but i did like the 2nd to last level for it's twists. 

i really wish the environment outside of the walls played a bigger part.  i never really feared the water in this game, nor did i fear drowning.  in the end, the puddles were more like reusuable exploding barrels;  placed here just to give you one more option to kill a baddie. 
8701  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Half Life 2] Well I just did that for nothing! on: March 25, 2008, 07:47:30 PM
before my 360 broke, and before i sent OB back, i attempted for a little while to get the gnome ach in ep 2.  however, i let it get out of my sight and couldn't backtrack, so i just said to hell with it and went on.  when i get around to going through again, i don't think i'll even bother with it. 

i did reload early on in hl2 to get both versions of the trash can man ach points.  easy as pie, even though a bit shallow.

like i figured then.  dumb cause for limiting it too. it's not like a ps3 in remote play mode is anything other than a static image.  if you could use the ps3 during remote play, then it would be an issue.

i really want them to fix the remote play function btw.  having to select it from the ps3 kind of defeats the purpose somewhat.  it's not like i always know in advance i would like to use it, and i like to have more control over the console when it's running.

Check you settings- if you have Wake-On-Lan enabled then you can start the PS3, use Remote Play, and then shut off the PS3 all through the PSP without ever being around the PS3 beyond initial setup. 

i will look into this.  thanks kg

Also... as a recent new parent, let me offer the following advice:

If you think your wife can work a stay at home job AND watch the kid at the same time, I think you are in for an extremely rude awakening.  Babies are pretty much 24/7 for a good long while.  If you are lucky the kid will take a 1 - 2 hour nap twice a day, but it absolutely cannot be counted on.

My thoughts are that if you can't comfortably afford to do it on one salary, it's going to be almost impossible to do it, or it will be extremely *un*comfortable to do... we thought we had been total badasses and saved all this money while we were expecting... well, that stuff ran out pretty fast after the critter was born - and that was with both of us working full time jobs.

IF she is going to work from home, I think you need to count on it being only during times when you are going to be home to watch the kid.

+ hours of sleep i have missed to date.

fwiw, in 8 hours of scheduled sleep time, my wife and i were each up and feeding the kid twice, and for ~45 minutes each, including changing, feeding, burping, and then rocking him to sleep.

when you then consider that he was up about every two hours, it made for a sleepless night.  i figure i got about 5-6 hours of broken sleep.  she got even less as she took the last two "shifts".  she called around lunch time and apparently, he's been asleep for no more than half hour at a time.  it doesn't help that his sister keeps vying for attention. 

if they sold sleep in a black market alleyways, i would be pawning off my games to catch up.

but don't let me down you out man.  kids are great biggrin

gratz dude.  little girls are a bundle of joy, at least the early years slywink

hmm.  jane A. M

my daughter is andrea jean M., so we have something in common.  jane was one of a few names we had in mind for her middle name, mainly so she would have A.J. as a possible nickname. 

as to your daughter, it helps to know how many syllables are in your last name to know how it will flow.

You gotta put $10 down and the price is $84.95.



(Looked for a spit take smiley and the best I could find was a brown fire vomit smiley.)

sweet jebus that's expensive.  not sure it's worth it for a soundtrack cd and a smallish graphic novel.  at least the gta 4 ce has some good stuff for that kind of money.

man, those were some awesome pre order loot days.  now we are lucky to get a poster, or an extra level everyone else will get after the code is posted.  :roll

however, a nicer box + cd + novella + documentary doesn't do it for me.

(√) An avatar that represents the character I'm creating

In Oblivion, for example, my "berserker" character looked totally different from my "stealthy" character and my "nobleborn" character.  I think of a character concept and design the look of the character to match that concept as best as possible.  Sometimes it's modelled loosely around my own personality, but often not.

+1.  this describes it perfectly.  my mass effect character was chosen for this reason.  same with the godfather.  now, saints row was chosen just because i didn't want another white guy, just to be different.

That's been my EXACT same experience.  Sometimes I wonder if Kevin and I are the same person.
gellar

I know Kevin Grey. Kevin Grey's a friend of mine.  And you, Gellar, are no Kevin Grey.

Kevin Grey is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. The mere fact that you would admit to knowing Kevin Grey positively establishes the fact that you are not the REAL ATB.

The OP should ignore this charlatan.

my personal belief is that "kevin grey" is itself a bit of misdirection at us earthbound types.  i think "kevin" is only the closest sounding english name to the syllables we humans can perceive, and that it is only 40% of the full name.  dogs could probably hear ~80%, although they wouldn't be able to understand it. 

i think "grey" is his attempt at dry humor at our expense.  his bit of hiding in plain sight, if you will. 





or it could be the 4 hours of broken sleep talking.  not sure really.

on the fence on crisis core (80%), viking (60%), and dark sector (40)%. 

i'm hoping they release a demo for viking.  it looks pretty fun and sounds like a dynasty warriors game with a grander approach.  i think i'll try to gamefly it if nothing else.

of course, it's all still moot anyways as the 360 is sitting in a warehouse in texas.

i think yo u said you wouldn't be planning on hacking a psp if you got one, but imo, it's a much more impressive system when you do.  carrying your whole (or most) of your gaming library with you is pretty damn cool, and you get to play with applications you would never be able to get with sony firmware.  as mentioned above, playing your ps1 games portable is cool.
