Frontlines [eyes Kato and Jarrodhk]

i really want to add to this, but honestly, my 360 gaming time (and consoles in general) has dropped to a trickle.  it's all psp/ds gaming in small chunks atm.

if you three rave over it, my will will be broken however.  the sp demo was cool and multi sounds like a ton of fun.
8682  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: [PS3]NG: Sigma, Folklore on $30 Clearance at Target on: February 25, 2008, 11:03:36 PM
bare pickings today. 2 copies of universe at war @ $25. if anyone wants me to pick up a copy, lmk. they also had jericho PC version for 15 and a random selection of console games but no standouts.

i'll check the other store in the next few days as they have usually had better selection.

no folklore or ngs.  they had a few ps3 sports games on clearance, but nothing to write home about.

this is the closeout price btw, not a sale, so if you want one, you better move on it quick.

http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7010137015

with a ps3 already and hd dvd on it's death bed, i'm firmly on the fence.
8684  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: 360 HD-DVD player $49.99 at Bestbuy on: February 25, 2008, 06:04:34 PM
damn that's a good deal, if nothing else to get regular dvd watching off the main drives.  is this as good a player for sd as the ps3 is?

anything specific you're looking for 360 wise?
8688  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Warhawk fs/t (omg price drop!) on: February 23, 2008, 08:54:14 PM
with the limited time i have and my utter lack of skill, i'd like to get something back on this one.  barely played, with headset and in great shape.

looking for $35 shipped or 30 for just the game.  trade offers welcome.  nothing specific, but lmk what you have

bump for price drop, split option.
8689  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Console games you want to love but can't on: February 22, 2008, 09:18:03 AM
warhawk.  i like the flying alright, but i couldn't find time to devote to it.  i really should sell it
smt: nocturne.  like the idea of it more than the actual gameplay.  still have it and the guide on my shelf.
dmc.  i couldn't get the combat down to progress very far
8690  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Atlus.com countdown - could it be Persona: FES?! on: February 22, 2008, 09:15:00 AM
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. 
8697  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. 
8703  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Spore release date!!! on: February 12, 2008, 07:46:12 PM
welcome to the forums.  we've got a somewhat lively conversation about this here.  just watch out for ceekay, he's NSFChildren

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. 
8705  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Writers Guild Strike Notes on: February 12, 2008, 07:40:27 PM
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. 
8708  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect for the PC on: February 12, 2008, 07:24:20 PM
i like it.  now they just need to patch it into the 360 version, along with any gameplay fixes they make.

Working on it.  slywink

awesome news KD.

8711  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.
