my wife has regressed in gaming.  she used to play quite a bit of bejeweled and hexic.  my goal was to get her into puzzle quest and then into coop games. 

she hasn't even touched the system in months.

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.

8849  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Target clearance watch - April update! on: March 21, 2008, 07:31:19 PM
in one of the off-the-beaten-path stores i came across a few new games on the clearance rack

360
pgr3 - 13.98
pgr4 - 29.99
viva pinata party animals - 14.98

not much else except wii shovelware and some $30 copies of QW for the pc.
8850  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Universe at War: Earth Assault on: March 21, 2008, 07:25:51 PM
i haven't had much time to get into the pc version, but i like it so far.  the robot faction has a twist on gameplay that i like and it's very satisfying to take out one of those giant walkers.  feels like more than just a really big tank. 

fwiw, i grabbed a clearance copy of it at target for ~$13, so if you are on the fence, it's a great alternative to going console.  plus, it has a 1 month live card in the box, so it's a good value for you buck.

tbh, i haven't touched any of the rts on the 360, but as soon as c&c3 drops in price, i plan on picking it up.

Apparently over some of the weapon choices it says you can "buy" that gun on the Xbox Live marketplace.

First horse armor, now this.  Micro-transactions suck!

You do realize that this is the entire reason for the game, right? The game itself is supposed to be free (or really cheap), and you'll pay for extra weapons/costumes/etc that aren't supposed to unbalance gameplay with those who didn't buy said gun.

this one is free?  you sure about that?  i've always thought this was the single player battlefield game with the crazy destructible environments and vehicles.  what you describe sounds like the battlefield heroes game they have announced for the pc.  if that's really the case here, my interest level just took a dive.

that's my #1 complaint with all movies like this.  any time you have a great cast acting like a bunch of pr--ks, they always turn them around into doing something nice at the end. they always learn a lesson and always end up winning .  it's FN pathetic that we can't get a good movie where the bad good guy doesn't make a 180 degree moral turn at the end.

bad santa

you can thank sci-fi for part of the snafu.  if they hadn't taken so long between s2, s3 and s4, they wouldn't have lost so many viewers.

What?  That's absurd.  There was only six month between S2 and S3- most cable shows go more like 9 months between seasons and it can be upwards of a year.  The wait for S4 has been rather excessive but the decision to end the show was made shortly after S3 ended so that didn't really play any effect on the ratings. 

was it only that long?  i seem to remember it took longer.  maybe i'm combining it with the mid season break in s3.  of course, s4 will do that too.  icon_confused

8862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360/PS3 media connection to a NAS? on: March 19, 2008, 10:14:45 PM
no, in essence, the sc101 is a block storage san, not a file system nas like the other unit i tried, the nslu2.  i think i need to put one of the linux firmwares on that thing and just use it instead. 

this thing looks great for backup and fast file access, but because it uses a proprietary file system, it's unusable with devices not equipped with the right drivers.

it looks like they are selling low to empty their stock as an identical newer unit for sata drives was next to it but 130 instead of 40 bucks.

not quite what i wanted it to be, but it's not bad for what it does.
8863  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360/PS3 media connection to a NAS? on: March 19, 2008, 08:07:44 PM
anyone here have any luck getting this to work?  i grabbed a 750gb drive and a netgear SC101

i tried this once with a usb attached hd and got nothing to work with either the ps3 or the 360.  i'll use it with whichever system i can get working.  i also tried it with a nslu 2 with no success. 

the goal is to store all of the family pictures, all of my cd's/mp3s in a high bit rate and eventually, all of the dvd movies so we don't risk the kids destroying anything. 

if it's not possible with the sc101, then i need to return it.

i also think moore and company had a general timeline for the story and felt they could wrap it all up in 4 seasons without cutting anything out or adding any fluff.

it still annoys me to know end though.

i can confirm the quality of the video card.  i have the xt version of this one and it has been perfect in every game i have played.  of course, it's now overshadowed by the dx10 cards, but it's still a very stable and reliable card.  it also overclocks like a champ.  it's also a steal at that price.

confirmed in my area.  i will be hitting the best buy and using the ad if possible, or perhaps pm'ing tomorrow as they usually stick to printed word instead of the spirit of them.
8869  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Recommended PSP games on: March 19, 2008, 07:36:36 PM
not sure of the model, but i still have the package from the one i bought.  never had to replace it and even though it's noticeably used, it doesn't obscure anything.  i wouldn't clean it with a paper towel, but wait until you get a protector as they usually come with a lint free, scratch free cloth.  best way to apply it is after a shower as all the dust will be out of the air.  sounds weird but it works.

fyi, if you get the need to get an ac adapter, check gamestop for their in house unit.  it's just as good as the sony one and costs ~15 instead of ~30?

i recommend the logitech cases over any other, but the playgear pocket is pretty rare afaik and it isn't a perfect fit for the slim.  it is imo, the best case you can find, and it has survived many drops without so much as a nick or crack.

that voip headset unit has been posted on a few retail sites and is rumored to be ~20.  it's not set in stone, but i think sony will try to hit that 20-30 target.

mem cards can be had pretty cheap on sale, so i'd hold off buying anything full price.  i grabbed a 4gb for $40 a few months ago, and have since seen them for 42 and 34.  you may need to check online for them.  fyi, check fry's for those prices or order them online.  8 gb sticks are rare and still pretty expensive, and imo, unnecessary if you can get good deals on the 4gb.

damn, that review does pan it pretty hard, doesn't it?  kind of surprising.

It does?  To me it sounded like if you liked Vegas 1 then you'll probably like Vegas 2.
I thought the first game was pretty solid and there was no need to reinvent the wheel.

Give me some new maps, add in a new exp system for skill advancement and I'm perfectly happy.




the tone of the review seems to be more negative than positive, but i think you can assume he was very hyped for a r6 sequel and this fell short of his expectations.  the slowdown, 2 player coop, AI-nsanity and been there, done that feeling left me less enthused than i was before i read it. 

hark, it's good to hear that the difficult doesn't approach cod4's ridiculous veteran difficulty approach of 10x the bad guys with 5x the health. 

i don't know what they could do to break the ai, as i remember it being pretty decent for the most part.  good use of cover and able to clear small rooms without me making all the kills.

i would recommend a wireless router instead of a usb dongle.  one, it means you don't have to have your pc on to use it, and two, it also provides a level of security over just having modem---PC.  as for model, i have been eying this because of this article on lifehacker.

the idea appeals to me immensely, as i work with some very nice routers, but i wouldn't buy one of them myself.
