Does anybody else have a problem with the cross-posting that goes on between this forum and OO??

I haven't been to OO for awhile so I'm missing the cross-posts.  That said, they are inevitable.  I'll occasionally post something here I see at QT3 or somewhere else but I always try to say "found this at QT3."

Let's not be hating on other forums here though.  Unless it's the IGN boards.  Feel free to bash those.



Yes thanks for that, I apprecieate seeing "(crossposted at QT3)" even though I never visit that site. To me, crossposting without actually stating it is as bad as handing in an essay for university that you've already submitted for another class. If you're gonna do it, at least own up to it. smile

And for the record, I my purpose is not for this thread to descend into forum bashing (unless of course as it has already been stated, we're talking about IGN boards or Gamefaqs boards) as I actually quite like OO.  That's why the lack of content variety annoys me sometimes.

Also the PSP's "harddrive" is internal but wheras with the DS you have a huge thing sticking out of the back.  And that 129 pounds is well over the price of my PSP (90 pounds) not mention I would still have to buy a DS on top of that.

Does anybody else have a problem with the cross-posting that goes on between this forum and OO??  I swear sometimes I feel like I'm browsing the exact same forum.  If I wanted absolutely no variety then I would just stick with a single forum.  It seems like 30-40% of the threads are carbon copies of each other.

Anyways that's about it.  Sorry I just felt the need to vent. smile
All I ask is that if you're going to cross-post please state that you are doing so in your original post so we all know that you are too lazy to provide original content.  Copying and pasting makes you a spammer. smile

Quote from: "Xmann"
I know alot of people didnt like it, but i've been playing for a couple months now and i'm really liking it.  I usually play skirmishes and enjoy it quite a bit.    

Anyone else gonna give it a shot?  I'm in.  Here's a list of things to look forward to in the expansion......

Empire Earth II: The Art of Supremacy, developed by Mad Doc® Software, expands the scope and depth of the addictive strategy gameplay with new content and modes in both single and multiplayer. New features in the expansion pack include:

* From the Pharaohs to Napoleon, relive mankind’s most legendary moments in three new globe-spanning campaigns.
* Control four new civilizations: the French, the Russians, and the Zulu and Maasai of the all-new African region.
* New gameplay modes, including “Tug-Of-War,” where players fight a persistent battle across up-to-nine maps
* New “Turning Point” battles, pitting players against one another at key moments in history, including Rorke’s Drift and the battle of Kursk
* Conquer, assimilate, or ally with Native Tribes for additional bonuses
* New battle systems and upgrades including Heroes, Control Group Warplans and Fealty
* New technological improvements, including advanced lighting effects, splash damage for thrown units, new animations for upgrades, voice-over-IP support and EAX enhanced sound effects
* Use the new Civilization Editor to create Custom Civilizations tailored for your play style


You know what, now everytime I read a post like this I think "shill shill shill!!"

Damn Penny Arcade for making me so paranoid! smile
5367  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo DS on: February 11, 2006, 11:37:18 AM
Just thought I'd post a couple of links I found while browsing Gamefaqs (I feel dirty)

The first is a short clip with a side by side comparsion of DS and Lite
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2378340259991566574&q=DS

and the second is a short video of a dork running over his DS.  It looks to be in pretty good shape after with looks like only a broken hinge.
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8181462517753881696&q=DS

BTW anybody know when the DS Lite comes out in the US?  I'm just wondering how long I'll have to brag when I pick up my DS Lite on March 1st! biggrin
5368  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Commenting on Gaming Trend news articles on: February 01, 2006, 11:55:24 AM
Is there any way we could add a comment directly on the news page article itself rather than actually having to make a new thread in the forums?  Because I would love to add a quick reply to some of the articles (ie the completely biased controller article on the Nintendo site smile ) But it would be much more convenient if I could just click on a button that says "add a comment" instead of clicking on a link that takes me to the forum menu.

Grab yourself a copy of Close Combat 5.  No rushing there.  Lots of tactics and strategy too.
5372  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Got a PSP, need game/firmware recommendation. on: January 30, 2006, 12:34:51 PM
Thanks for that Clay!!  I've been waiting for that for a month now!! Will the new version play ISO's or only emulators??  I can't wait to load my games (all two of them!) onto my memory card so I don't have to use the damned UMD's any more.  Hopefully that will add to the battery time.  Incidently I just checked out http://pspupdates.qj.net/ and you would not believe the stuff they have on there!  Apparently there is a Quake 1 and Quake 2 mod for the PSP as well as a Transport Tycoon!  That is amazing!

I suppose that I need to buy the GTA game before I can get the emulators to work?  I'm not really a big fan of GTA.

Ahh yes that's another thing.  I read that too-you need to be using the older version of ePSXe.
5374  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EPSXE Crash(FF9)-Warning Help Please? on: January 29, 2006, 11:50:12 PM
your best bet would be to check out the ePSXe forums.

Battlefield 2??  Brothers in Arms??  Those are strategy games in the loosest sense of the word I guess.  I was hoping to see a few more hardcore strategy games on there.

5378  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy: Dirge of Cerberus is out in Japan... on: January 26, 2006, 12:39:03 PM
Why would anyone buy a rerelease of FFVII with no changes if they can just go pick up a copy of the Greatest Hits Playstation version at their local Walmart for $14 bucks?  Now if they rereleased FFVII with improved graphics then I would totally be IN!
5379  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy: Dirge of Cerberus is out in Japan... on: January 26, 2006, 01:12:39 AM
Where are you getting your info?  I'd like to read it.
5380  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Japanese Sales Charts on: January 25, 2006, 11:58:34 PM
Wow that's crazy.  So the xbox has sold 17,000 units of the 120,000 they were issued?  Talk about a flop oin Japan.  I remember conservative estimates were suggesting that they had a 40% selling rate  during the first few release days but here we are a month and a half later and that total isnt even close to 40%

If it's the March issue, wouldn't it hit in February?

^ Yeah, but you want to love them, don't you?  Ditto here, I wanted to find Makai Kingdom silly and I wanted to dive into the item world in Disgaea but MY GOD, I don't know what it is, but I think I'm just DONE with Nippon Ichi SRPGs unless they do something radically different.


Did you enjoy Final Fantasy Tactics?  Because I loved it and I like the look of these other games but I'm worried that it's more of a game for leveling whores than something with a fantastic story like FFT had.

If you're buying new games then why don't you just go to Walmart instead?  I mean the selection is practically as good and the prices are cheaper.
5386  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth 2 coming for 360 on: January 16, 2006, 02:55:38 AM
Honestly I think the real problem for console RTS games in the past was not the lack of mouse support but rather the terrible resolution.    RTS is all about controlling  ridiculous numbers of tiny little units and in the past it just wasn't really feasible to do it on a normal tv.  But now with HD tv's it shouldnt be as much of a problem.  I think we'll see more RTS games out this generation (and if people by them, then the PS3 will probably support the mouse and keyboard for all games)

By the way this may sound stupid but is that first chart only for one week?  That what it seems to say according to the date.  Did they really sell 390,000 DS's in one week?
5389  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Interesting Japanese sales data 12/26 - 01/01 on: January 15, 2006, 10:52:48 AM
Brain training games are all the rage here.  I've seen commercials for it.  It makes great use of the stylus.  Makes sense when you think how important education is for the kids.  Instead of buying them a game, buy them something that will help them get into that famous highschool.  My girlfriend thinks it's the greatest things.  Unfortunately not quite great enough to make her go out and buy one smile

5393  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360]Hmm...external HD-DVD drive announced on: January 06, 2006, 03:32:09 AM
I read in the paper today that the Blue Ray player could cost as much as $1800 compared to $800-$400 for the HD-DVD player.  If that's the case then I'll definitely be picking up a PS3!.  It makes a $500 console seem like a bargain.

Pretty darn sure this add-on will only be used for viewing movies.  I doubt MS will ever allow game media to be shipped on it.


This may be a stupid question, but why would MS never allow game media to be shipped on HD-DVD's??
