this makes it easier for late adopters to grab a copy w/out dropping a premium for it.  i'll be interested in getting a copy when it releases.

of course, this from a guy with smt:nocturne + the strategy guide, and nary a piece of dust on either.  this should go into my "wanted to like, but couldn't" pile.

if you like music, don't forget the mangled mess museum, er, i mean the hendrix experience museum

down in tacoma is a good glass museum which is free the third thursday of each month.

snow on rainier in april?  almost definitely considering the crazy accumulation we've had this year.  you could go to northwest trek however.

+1 to the tulips.  i have many good pictures up there.  we are planning on going up this year, so lmk if you want to carpool. 

that's all i can think of atm, but if you have other interests, i'm sure there's other cool stuff to see.

i was as excited as a "starshifter after kotor3 news" to hear about the aliens game.  damn time we get some real co-op squad action ala aliens online (gods, has it been that long?)

i so want a revival of AO's gameplay for mp games.  damn that was good fun. 
8688  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Wii sucks! on: February 13, 2008, 08:22:07 PM
we should ask again the question of multi system owners and % playtime.  for my part, my psp has moved past the ds for current playtime, with the pc making a resurgence against the 360.  the ps3 and the wii are almost nil for usage, after the dec/jan games reached their end.

game buying is mostly pc/360, with little of anything portable and nothing ps3/wii since last year.

It's too bad they won't quit the Bioware forums in protest.

but they have a right to complain about console exclusivity.  didn't you see the last paragraph in the ME manual? 

i do wish the mods would do some voodoo link magic and send them to a gamefaqs forum instead.

Island Dog - welcome to GamingTrend.

I read the guidelines regarding the patch, and that nothing 'major' will be addressed yet, so with that in mind, I think your list is great.

Question: Does Ironclad plan on re-visiting the diplomacy model in the future?  I find the current "mission" model, although very refreshing, to be a bit frustrating as it stands.  From reading the forums, this is obviously something others have concerns about as well.  Is Ironclad tossing around ideas on how to tweak it, or is diplomacy pretty low on the list of things to look at?  Just curious.



i haven't played any diplomacy yet as you don't get much that way in a 1v1, so i'm curious about what makes it frustrating.

heh, and looking at the Bioware forums for the PC versions you can see the hardcore fans imploding over being 'betrayed' and threatening to sell their 360's.  I laugh in their general direction.

yeah, that's a bit much.  it's not like there are no other games worth playing on the 360. 

didn't they have a clue considering every bioware xbox rpg had a pc version released?  maybe they should start a petition to stop bioware from making this a pc game.

so we get 1/3rd of the previous season's episodes of Lost to look forward to, with the other 8 for the season in 6 months?!

any word on what this is doing to BSG's already screwed up season?  hell, shouldn't they have already begun showing new stuff by now considering they had a year long break between s3 and 4? 

this really is a crap year for tv shows.

When I saw this on the news, I thought it said Rob Schneider died.  I was quite stricken with sadness.  Then I realized it said Roy Schieder, and I thought meh..

Interesting. One is a talentless hack with the same brainless schtick and the other has been in some of the best movies of all time.  Your statement doesn't do much to support any notion that you have taste.   retard nod slywink

I guess he just can't get enough of Rob Schneider's walk-on roles in Adam Sandler movies.

oh yeah, you mean that one character with a funny accent?  i love that guy. 
8699  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect for the PC on: February 12, 2008, 07:24:20 PM

8702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sins of a Solar Empire - Beta Musings on: February 12, 2008, 07:11:01 PM
definite yes on AI surrendering.  one Q, how is it determined who they will surrender too and when?  in gc2, they would sometimes drop out even with a decent amount of colonies and not just because they had a fleet surrounding their home planet.  if they decide to surrender, who gets the spoils of war?  their friendliest alien, or the one who has the guns pointed at their head? 

i look forward to it.  i just finished up my first game (6 hrs) and i am already planning my next one. 

any plans to do a metaverse style system ala gc2?  i always liked that mechanic of boosting up your clan via sp victories and stat tracking.

argh!

While this is great, the patch caused my nearly complete download of SoaSE on my desktop to restart from the beginning, and all the people downloading the patch have slowed my install down to single or double digit kb/s.

That said, I'm going to do a LAN game with a friend today, should be fun.

ouch.  not the best way to manage patches unfortunately.  should have let you get the whole thing and then grab the patch right after.

i got this in a trade a few days ago and it has ctd'd twice on me so far, in the prologue and again in ch 1, only once during a load.  i hit a key and crashed the first time, and again after i finished the drunken master gardener quest.  that was a fun quest btw, but it's unfortunate they didn't animate your attacks as a drunk.  so you stumble around all crazy like and then when you draw your sword, it's back to badass sword fighter.

great looking game artistically speaking and i love the detail they put into the world. 

this is on xp, amd 4400, ati 1900, 2gb ram.

The only way I could kind of accurately put it would be GalCiv meets Conquest Frontier Wars. Which is all kinds of awesome in my book.

Yooo.. I forgot about Conquest Frontier Wars,, that was the shit.. Holy crap If it is like that plus GalCiv I am on it as I get out of here.
Which leads to my next question: Is it windows Live and how dose Windows Live work on the PC? (I have a Live 360 Gold account)

mp is through Iron Clad Online, (ICO) and afaik, not live supported.  you create an account with them and whatever named players you want to use in game.

as long as i don't get wrapped up in sins, i'll be on to fan the embers after you east-coasters go beddy-bye and as early as i can in the evening. 

i need to get as much mp in while i can.  i don't expect to be doing as much in the coming months.
8715  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Sins of a Solar Empire? on: February 07, 2008, 08:24:46 PM
in as well.  i got both my main name and my live tag, account name is the same as my psn login. 

so, do you add the account name as a friend or the player name you add in once you get logged in to ICO?

i saw kato last night, but he was already in and i was too interested in learning the game to set up a vent client.

i like what i see, even though it doesn't seem anywhere as complex as gc2.  kind of like homeworld with a strategic scope minus the 3d playfield.
8716  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: COD4 What's Your Play Style and Prefered Kit? on: February 07, 2008, 01:44:54 AM
unless it's a small map, i pretty much stick to the smg.  rpd w/grip, stopping power,  deep impact.  take and hold defensive positions and cover teammates.

Yeah he's pretty much guaranteed to hate CoD4. 75% of the game is in the multiplayer mode which he's almost sure to avoid completely.

Still, it should be plenty entertaining smile

as always, if you see me online shoot an invite over.  if i'm not in burnout, i'll jump over.  if i am in burnout, it depends if i'm well, burned out on it or not. 

i need to put cod4 back in my 5 recent games played anyways.

I briefly looked into the AIEGA PhysX card a while back, and the fundamental stumbling block to me is the card does not improve graphics performance/speed in any wayicon_confused I was like, "huh?"


And food for thought - NVidia has PhysX, and Intel owns Havok. Just imagine the hell that'll happen if both companies refuse to license out anything to ATI/AMD.

my last big new pc (amd 4400/ati 1900) is looking to be the last setup i get using either of those two companies.  sad really, as they were always my favorite brands in their technologies.

long live the IntelNvidia i suppose
