In hindsight it may not have been a bad option for me, since I now have over 3 million credits with little or nothing to spend them on.  icon_frown

I'm still at the part where the good stuff costs 50 grand yet nothing I sell back is worth more that 2 grand.

150+ saves.

heh, I have about that many at 15 hours in with me doing alot of sidequests.  I have a tendency to save right before trying to open a locker, so if I screw up the sequence I just reload and try again instead of wasting the omni gel.

Man, I thought I was an excessive saver but you guys are nuts.  I just hit 20 hours and am on save #25.

a bunch of them have been paranoia saves too- in the beginning I didn't save alot and ended up re-doing alot due to the game crashing a couple of times and the occasional getting stuck on geometry (plus I just hate the 'Simon' mini-game and don't feel like repeating it, especially when it feels like the time limit to hit the right button is very arbitrary, even when doing the same one over again).

Yes, now we're talking.  I have a Nvidia 8800 GT.  How do I do that?

Under the Nvidia control panel there should be an option for Flat Panel scaling.  Select your personal preference there (usually I go with scale while maintaining aspect ratio).

IIRC, grenades replenish on their own slowly and also from opening various containers in the environment.  I don't think you can replenish them on then on the Normandy like you can med packs.   

d'oh!  I figured they'd recharge automatically like the med packs!  stupid Alliance not providing me with enough high explosives to properly do my job!

I do love sticking them on the wall or ceiling near an enemy taking cover and blowing them up though.

Quote from: warning on November 29, 2007, 04:24:49 PM

A lot depends on your video card.  Nvidia's drivers let you stretch the game to fill the whole screen (which would distort the aspect ratio), stretch while preserving the aspect ratio (black bars on the sides), or center a 1024x768 view in the middle of the monitor surrounded by black.

I need to look into that.  I've always had them stretch automatically, I didn't even know that was an option.

This is the PS2 version, only one they had at EB.

The more I thought about it today, the more I got pissed........it's basically the same game, which wouldn't be that big a deal if it wasn't for the $40 price.

do you think it would be worth it for someone who's never played any of the other Godzilla games?

On second thought...no.

You can probably find "Melee" really cheap, and it is for the most part the same game.

I'm playing an Infiltrator right now and have yet to feel all that stealthy/infiltratie.  I'm more likely to use my pistols than my sniper rifle.

The sniper rifle is only 1 aspect of playing an infiltrator. The real payoff is in the use of your electronic (overload) and decryption (sabotage) attacks. Later on when you get to choose your specialization class, you can take a path which makes those 2 attacks extremely devastating.
It's worth it to maintain your pistol skills as once you get marksman you can fire it like a compact machine gun. I've been using my sniper rifle almost from day 1 with good effect. Your best sniping moments will come on side quests. Just remember to get out of the Mako when you've got those shooting ducks in a barrel opportunities. It's true the sniper rifle gets better as you approach the end game, just last night I took down 3 kogar mercenaries with 1 shot! Guess they were never told they shouldn't rush the enemy together in a straight line.  icon_twisted

I really need to start remembering to use all my abilities in combat- so fars it's all been taking cover and going in guns blazing (with some on the fly weapons mod management- it's nice they let you do that in the middle of combat) and  no use of Assassination or other skills.

I assume there's some place on the Normandy to replenish your grenades, right?  I haven't seen them for sale anywhere and I found out I was out of them last night during a nasty little Geth ambush while I was monkey hunting.
62113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Unreal Tournament 3-who's in? on: November 29, 2007, 03:44:34 PM
I'll be passing on the iteration.  I loved the UT2004 gameplay, and the demo I played of UT3 felt much faster than it, more like UT2003 which I didn't care for.
62114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Question about gaming on LCD monitors on: November 29, 2007, 03:41:33 PM
I know my monitor scales graphics to fit the screen if the game doesn't support a given resolution, which can make things look odd (ie KotOR when the characters a bit too plump since the game doesn't support 1440x900).   Your LCD should be able to do the same thing and the results may very on how close the games maximum resolution gets to 1920x1200.

Of course there's always the question of whether your PC will be able to handle running games at that resolution, so you may have to knock down the resolution a bit anyways.

I witnessed TiVo at a friends on Thanksgiving and I'm thinking of getting one too.  If I do I'll end up going with the HD one though, since the one you linked to doesn't appear to have a HDMI output.


Yeah, I don't have HD cable in my place, but I do have digital cable and for now that's okay

That's odd.  Did you call them and ask if they had an HD box or an HD DVR?  Most of the digital cable packages I've heard of have at least 5 or 6 channels in HD by now.  I'd think your market (Baltimore?) would have it for sure.

yeah, when I was down there and I had digital cable from Comcast I had at least a couple channels in HD.  Even though I didn;t have an HD set at the time they'd show up as letterboxed when I viewed them.

I went straight-up soldier but I'll probably play it again to do the douchebag Renegade route.  Thinking I'll do the biotic path next time.

I'm doing the ruthless bitch route myself, but so far there hasn't been alot of 'ruthless' choices.

How far are you?  For the most part I think the game does ruthless pretty well.  Which isn't to be confused with evil because the game really doesn't allow you to be flat out evil. 

I'm about 10 hours in.  I haven't done alot of the main quest, mostly side quests.  I did get one interesting choice with a weapons dealer tonight that was pretty cool.
