4601  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Favourite videogame music? on: December 03, 2007, 02:02:37 PM
I love "To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy 10.

What else is good?

oops sorry! let me correct that!
4603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: December 03, 2007, 03:10:19 AM
Well I just had a good game with ATB and was throughly and soundly thrashed. Looks like I need to play a little bit more!  Oh and for future reference, three minute turns are NOT long enough and 30,000 points are just way to many! smile

Ok clocking in at 42 minutes this was way too long to watch all of it but I was very impressed by the first five minutes! It seems very professionally done (for amateurs) and in just the first five minutes you'll see a lot of hallmarks of the FF series (and RPG's in general).  Fantastic job!

Unfortunately Wife prefers fake and since we have an abundance of dumb animals that would love nothing more than to get at the water under the tree - I agreed to compromise and accept a fake one again this year. Typing this as wife and daughter are hanging ornaments on it.


Maybe it's just be but I don't see the compromise here.  It looks like your wife simply won and convinced you that you were getting a compromise.

More videos from Japan! I love this stuff!

First video: Tongue twisters with a twist!

Second video-I think that's some kind of art.  But it's still cool biggrin (and a good reason why you should NEVER piss off your Japanese girlfriend)

Does Tom Clancy actually have anything to do with this other than just having is name pasted on the title? If not I might actually buy it.  God I detest that man as a writer.

According to your logic, most athletes should be at the top of their game after a 20 year career.  That is exceptionally rare.  Let's face it-it's time you were put on waivers, old man.

Link to the now deleted movie if you're interested in checking it out.

Tons of people are giving a score of one on Gamespot's site lol.  I can guarantee you that Eidos will not be happy about THAT publicity, whether things went down the way the Penny Arcade guys say.  I hope he got fired for the reasons stated because if he didn't I could see how someone might have a serious slander case on their hands.

Pretty messed up.  And I always held Gamespot in high regard (at least compared to IGN).
4612  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MGS4 - 1 million or bust! on: November 30, 2007, 02:35:06 AM
MGS has always been popular.  At least since the PSOne days anyways.  When it came down to which console you were going to buy (N64 or Playstation) you either went with Zelda or you went with Metal Gear Solid.  At least I did anyways!  People may not be so amazed with MGS now but way back in 1998 (or whenever it came out) it was the shit!!!
4613  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Unreal Tournament 3-who's in? on: November 29, 2007, 12:17:32 PM
Any hype for this game?  I dont remember seeing any threads on it.  It's supposed to be released on December 12th.  Normally I wouldn't be pumped as I despise FPS games on the console, however we've FINALLY got a developer who is willing to include mouse and keyboard support.  I have given up playing the PC upgrade race but I still enjoy playing the occasional shooter.  My laptop runs HL2 decently with some of the settings turned down but I don't even bother to try the more recent releases.  I know some people refuse to entertain the idea of a m+kb in the living room but I have absolutely no problem with it.  I also like the fact that any mod for the PC should also work for the PS3.  I hope that includes full conversions!  Hopefully after Unreal 3, m+kb support will become standard for future games in the genre (and maybe other games, ie RTS).
4614  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Eye of Judgement - Booster Pack(s) on: November 29, 2007, 11:45:25 AM
I think they would have to prove that they actually sent you that much.  Which might be difficult because if they could prove it then they probably wouldn't have screwed up anyways.  You could always say you only received 3 booster packs-I don't see what they could do.

I'm definitely up.  Maybe we can hook it up this weekend...Though you're like 10 hrs ahead or something arent you?

How about Sunday evening?  That'll be a Monday morning for me which is fine because I have no job right now smile
4617  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] New extended battery pack on: November 27, 2007, 11:21:36 PM
Well every old PSP should have an old battery still so I don't see what difference it really makes.
4618  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 27, 2007, 12:46:19 PM
Well I just finished the second mission of the German campaign.  What a fantastic little game! Best TBS game on the DS bar none in my opinion!! I managed to get a three star victory on the Norway campaign again but I came up just short on taking out all five coastal bunkers.  I should have:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Sent a larger force up the right hand flank of Norway and sent my navy up along the coast to take out that last bunker.

Anybody up for a multiplayer game?  I'm looking forward to trying out that side of the game.

4620  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sony: "We Suck Less!" on: November 27, 2007, 02:31:16 AM
Things seem to be going well for the PSP.  I read in the newspaper today that the new PSP in Japan has sold a million units in...actually I'm not sure.  Two months?  Anyways they hit that mark faster than they did with the original PSP.  Not sure if it will ever be able to catch the DS but it's got a big black behemoth on their tail now.

Great race! It's more of a sport than F1 or NASCAR as far as I'm concerned.  My Dad is and my Grandpa was big into horses.  I think that my Grandpa might have had some connection to Secretariat as he had mares that were bred to the some of the big race horses.

4625  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 24, 2007, 04:31:24 AM
By the way ATB, if you really like this type of game then I highly recommend checking out Matrix Games' Commander: Europe at War.  And by 'check out' I mean buy, since Matrix Games has their terrible no demo policy.  However if you're a fan of Panzer Tactics or Panzer General then I can pretty much guarantee that you will like this game.  It's slightly more complex (research is involved) and there are supply rules (cutting off an enemy means cutting of their supply) but it's still a really great 'beer 'n' pretzels' type game.  As the name suggests it's on a slightly larger scale (all of Europe) but the gameplay is still exactly the same.  One change I really love is the realistic oil supply.  Basically all of your units (except infantry) consume oil.  So if you build up a serious armoured force then you are going to be begging for oil.  And you can't just magically turn fame points into oil either.  The only way to get it is to capture oil fields.  Which means that as the Germans, instead of driving straight to Moscow as you might in any other game, you may choose to make a stab for the oil rich areas of Caucasus.  Or maybe try what Hitler did and try to accomplish both at once!
Anyways if you're looking for something more after finishing PT and you're not quite ready to dive into War in the Pacific then I highly recommend CEAW.
4626  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 23, 2007, 11:34:04 PM
How did you do in the first mission by the way?  I managed to capture all the cities in 9 days without losing a unit.  I don't think I bought a unit either.  I was rewarded 3500 fame points for a total of about 4600.

Maybe you should get another hobby?  Or attempt to become of real member of the real Mile High club!  Now THAT would be an achievement!
4628  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 23, 2007, 12:17:52 PM
So basically only ATB, Godzilla Blitz, BlackJack and myself have the game?  Frogstar has it but it isn't his cup of tea. That's disappointing.  I was hoping more people would be getting this game.  I just finished the tutorials and am loving it right now.  FAR better than Age of Empires ever was.  Considering how shit the online matchmaking portion is it will be difficult to get much of an online community going I think.  Perhaps if more people get the game we could set up a Panzer Tactics ladder! smile
4629  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NHL 08 updates on: November 23, 2007, 01:20:39 AM
Nope no difference.  I still get disconnected from the EA servers.  Looks like I'm back to blaming EA again ><
Is there any way I could get this download from my computer?  Would it be possible for someone to download it and email it to me by any chance?
4630  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NHL 08 updates on: November 22, 2007, 10:33:41 AM
On the other hand, it could be my router.  But it's more fun to blame EA smile
I can plug directly into my PS3 right?  I'll give that a try tonight.
4631  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 22, 2007, 09:06:15 AM
Well the game is looking pretty good so far! I'm still just going through the tutorials.  But the online part absolutely sucks.  The online community is small enough as it is but their poor implementation of matchmaking just kills any chance that it ever had.  Basically, if I'm understanding correctly, instead of finding an opponent and creating a game, you create a game and then try to match up with an opponent!  But the only way you'll be able to match is if you have the exact same game options!!!  That's just the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard and I think it will completely kill the multiplayer (unless you are playing with friends).
4632  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / NHL 08 updates on: November 22, 2007, 06:37:56 AM
I'm not sure if anyone else is having this problem but everytime I try to go online with NHL 08 (to grab the rosters or whatever) it tells be that I need to download an update first.  Well it's only 8 files but it takes FOR FUCKING EVER and of course for some reason my connection to EA's servers always gets disconnected at around file number three or so.  I don't know what's going but I'n sure those fucks at EA are involved somehow.  Is there anyway I can get this download directly off the net and then transfer it to the PS3 via USB key?  I've looked but I can't seem to find the files anywhere.

Yeah I meant a PM.  I sent you a PayPal request Destructor.  As of now I'm going to be picking up two DualShock3's, both black unless I can't find any then I'll get whites instead.  I don't think it will be too much of a problem. I got unlucky and had to get a white for myself. I don't mind it actually. It makes it real easy to tell at a glance which is the good controller smile
