You could have played "I spy".

"I spy, with my little eye, a passing play beginning with 'H'."
"Hail Mary."
"What th- how did you do that?"
"You've run a Hail Mary for the last 46 plays you've had.  You go to the Hail Mary formation, pick the Hail Mary play, and here we are.  Again."
"...bastard.  Why not try to make the game enjoyable for once?"

I have a question about building the mechs.  When I was playing around last night with the builder, I saw I could mount a gun so that it would point straight up in the air.  Why the hell would I want to do that?

Indirect-fire artillery.  Not sure if it's actually feasible in the game, but I thought of it right away.  Imagine a mech modeled after the MLRS.

Came into some extra cash this week, so I'm thinking hard about seeing if Best Buy has a DS Lite and a few games at lunchtime today.  I'd like to pick up two out of three games I want; Animal Crossing, New Mario, and Advance Wars DS.

Quote from: "GGMark"
years ago, I heard the WW was having some difficulties with selling stuff.  Things going stale and what not.  I havent been into the RPG scene for some time, so i dont know how they are doing now.  They must be doing OK at least.  I think it might just be something to try and get more people into that sort of thing.  

A lot of people still find PC games and console games acceptable, but PNP games are still for nerds.

Well, probably because of the difficulties with the old World of Darkness, they did a "franchise reset" and started over with new rules and tweaked elements of the universe, enough so they couldn't re-release as a 'new edition'; that probably has something to do with the influx of cash letting them try other projects in the last couple of years.

I wouldn't worry too much about AI yet... it's a DX10 game, so it can't release until Vista.  That gives them a lot of time for finishing touches, and if Far Cry was an indication, they're up to the task.
1177  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Internet Connection Sharing Issue on: June 17, 2006, 12:32:02 AM
Okay, for those of you that haven't seen my wonderful OO networking saga... I have a wireless router, not under my control (landlady).  I have a laptop with wireless and a 360 connected to that laptop via ICS.  Works like a charm, except for one issue; when the wireless flakes out, even for a moment, the whole computer refuses to resolve DNS until I physically unplug the crossover cable, leave it out until the DNS 'catches', and replug it.  So I can get Live, but only in 15-20 minute chunks.

Any ideas on how to make this not flake out?
1178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A blurb about upcoming BC update for 360. on: June 16, 2006, 10:18:42 PM
Quote from: "Ridah"
Because, as Clanwolfer said, there are those of us with limited financial and spatial resources and I'm not going back and forth between two different Xboxes because Microsoft can't get their shit together. Plain as that. Also consider this - there are exactly zero games out now for the 360 that I consider must-owns. That's going to be changing in the next six to eight months, but right now I have no reason in the world to buy a 360. That's one of the reasons why I enjoyed the PS2 so much. I could play my PS games on it just fine.

I'm not throwing out the library of XB games I have just because Microsoft thinks I'll leap at anything shiny.

I never agree with that excuse. I don't feel like Microsoft holds any sort of responsibility towards us to make the 360 backwards compatible. Like I've said before, no one used to cry about the fact that you couldn't play SNES games on the N64, or Saturn games on the Dreamcast. If you want to play Xbox games, play them on your Xbox. If "spatial resources" are your biggest issue, then obviously you simply don't have room to own any new consoles (which sounds ridiculous to me). Not to mention the fact that zero games in the 360 library interests you, so why do you own one?

Sorry, I don't mean to take personal shots at your or anything but whenever people start demanding MS allocate more resources towards backwards compatibility it pisses me off because I paid $400 to play NEW games and have NEW experiences and I don't want anything to take away from that.

Tell you what... if spatial issues aren't a big deal for you, you go ahead and help me move back into the dorm this fall.  I'll make sure to have lots of extra boxes of unnecessary crap that I'd rather not carry around ready.   Tongue

See, the thing is, nobody would be pissed if they mentioned it as a possible future bonus.  But they weren't forthcoming about it; they promised a goal of 100% compatibility, and then punked out on us.

The tragedy is that it is shiny, and I did jump.  Do I regret it?  Yeah, I have standard buyers' remorse, and I'd have much less if I could have hung onto the titles I sent off with my Xbox early this week when I sold it here.  But I needed the money, the Xbox had to go, and I merely blame Microsoft for the slight loss of gaming goodness in my life.

Now the PSP was my fault for jumping at shiny, and if/when I sell it on here, that will garner much more buyers' remorse (even though MLB06 is the finest baseball game I've ever played).

Why would being able to play old games you can play currently on hardware you already own be the deciding factor in spending $400 for a new console?  You can play the games whether or not you buy the new console.


No offense, but some of us are in situations where money or space is a factor.  Both are for me right now (I live in a tiny apartment in NYC, with fairly sky-high rent), and thus, as much as I hated to let go, I just sold my Xbox with all my non-BC games.  And with as frequently as I move to school and back (two moves a year, plus a semi-move at winter break), hauling that much stuff around is truly unreasonable.  There are games I'll miss playing, but MS screwed the pooch on this one, and I bought into their hype.  Oh, well, at least I have Forza.
1186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wasn't the DS Lite supposed to come with a web browser? on: June 16, 2006, 01:57:25 PM
Quote from: "Misguided"
It's based on Opera and was demonstrated at E3. It is in the form of a DS cart (I had thought it was going to be GBA shaped, but not so, apparently). No idea what the release date is going to be, but my guess is this fall.

I don't recall seeing any reference to this being "built-in".

How did the input look?  That alone could push my PSP well to the back of my playing time (or to the front of my trading line), if the DS web browser looks like it will have good enough input to, say, post to here and OO remotely, I'm definitely in.

I could see this taking off hugely as a cross-promotion with certain games.  How much of a coup for Microsoft would it be if they could make their own custom radio channel, and have it as a default selectable channel in GTA4 on release day?

1196  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Original XBox for sale {Taken} on: June 11, 2006, 04:42:37 PM
Looking for a DS, or to ease my acquisition of a DS Lite when I get some more money.

What I'm offering is:
XBox original system - this is a later-model one (I think maybe 1.5 years after release?), and I've never gotten so much as a single disc read error on it.
Power and original A/V cable.
NO CONTROLLERS! These disappeared when I moved out of the dorm, so you're on your own as far as getting controllers for it.
My entire non-backwards compatible library of Xbox games.

The games are:
Phantom Dust
Rallisport Challenge
DOA:Ultimate (both discs)
Madden 04
Silent Hill 2
Fatal Frame 2
NCAA '06

For the whole package, my initial thought is either $75 plus shipping, or an original DS and 2 games straight up.

I'm still deciding if I want one.  EB/Gamestop is offereing $70 for an original DS trade-in this week, which brings the price of a DS Lite preorder down to $60.  Tempting, but I don't know if the better screens and buttons are worth it.

I haven't been able to find any offical information regarding the EB/Gamestop trade in deal. Does this only pertain to certain stores, or is it nationwide in the US? Is there any information on their website?

The deal isn't specific to is an extra 20 bucks for trading in a DS, GC, PSP, PS2, XBox, or 360. It is in the June 4th Newspaper insert and the offers run through 6/11. No coupon is required. As far as I know, it is nationwide.

How much does an Xbox trade-in go for?  I have one laying around in a box (w/ power cords but no controllers), it's tempting to put that towards a DS.
