1241  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MVP '06 Coming Soon...Ping! on: January 24, 2006, 12:22:26 AM
Someone load up the stadium for St. John's (Queens, NY) and tell me how it looks.  I'd love to pick this up out of some misplaced sense of loyalty to our sports teams, but I'm rethinking after the comments here.
1242  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox Live 360 games, what are you playing? on: January 24, 2006, 12:07:29 AM
Loving the Geometry Wars, Gauntlet, and SmashTV, and trying to wrap up Condemned so I can trade it; after that I'm going to run co-op through PDZ with the roomies so I can try to trade that off, too, and then wrapping up PGR3 so I can trade that.  If you can't tell, I'm itching to try out some of the other stuff.

Loving the 360 so far, in total.

Quote from: "depward"
Ovechkin really is a dynamic player.  That goal he scored about a week ago or whatnot was UNBELIEVABLE.  It was fun to watch some Caps games when we had a free week of NHL Center Ice.

Yeah, that one caught everyone.  Since I'm living in NYC right now, I only caught the replay later (missed that game on the radio), but WOW.  He's firing on all cylinders... the neurons know where the limbs are, the skates and stick are, the puck is, and most importantly, where the teammates are, with enough left over to work out the next few moments of the play just so he knows where all of those things will be.  It's really a joy watching someone play with that kind of natural ability on both the physical and mental ends.
1244  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hockey Talk! on: January 23, 2006, 07:06:49 AM
Man, it's a good time to be a Caps fan.  First four-game win streak in ages, and I just cannot BELIEVE Ovechkin.  Not only is he simply a phenomenal player, but he's unselfish even when it comes to his goal streak ending (giving up a pass that resulted in a goal against the 'Canes).

Not a playoff year for us, but still, what a time to be watching.
1245  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Geometry Wars rawks on: January 23, 2006, 07:02:06 AM
I have PDZ, which is fun.

I have PGR3, which is insanely addictive in stretches and gorgeous to look at.

I just bought Condemned, which is reminding me heavily of Millennium, one of my favorite TV shows ever and one I'm currently rewatching through.

So why, oh why, oh why, does 90% of my time on the 360 still get spent on this game?  I'm so determined to hit 500K it's frightening.

For some reason on Geometry wars my hi-score never saves it is always 10,000 everytime I play.

The high score never saves, but the leaderboard score remains.

1248  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fight Night Round 3 DEMO!!! On Xbox Live Marketplace NOW! on: January 05, 2006, 06:42:49 PM
I'm going to have to put more time in on this one.  I love it, but the controls didn't seem quite as fluid and responsive as they did for FN Round 2.  I'm not sure whether that's because it's a pre-release demo, if I'm remembering wrong, if there are serious underlying problems, or whether I just really, really don't like Bernard Hopkins' style.

Still a Day 1 purchase for me, though.

If it's the same as the first one for face button punching, you hit both jab and hook simultaneously for an uppercut (been a while, so I'm not 100% on this).  As for haymakers, I believe that's only available with the Total Punch Control.

Reallly, I'd advise trying out TPC again.  It's a pretty simple system once you get the hang of it, and it feels a lot better than just mashing face buttons.

If we're doing tallies:
Tie tack/soccer jersey from Chile where my dad spent the last month
The official 'mission shirt' from the joint NASA/Chilean Armada mission he was on
America: The Book, a book from one of the essayists interviewed on the Daily Show, and a $25 B&N gift card
All-day paintball pass with equipment rental
Some really nice athletic wear; sweatshirt, shorts, and one of those nice Under Armour shirts.

I got America from a B Dalton that's shutting down for $15.  It's actually by the host of the Daily Show, Jon Stewart. smile  And it's funny as hell.

I know it's by the host... I meant I got another book from one of his interviewees on the show.  I'm more convinced with every year that Jon Stewart is one of the great interviewers of this generation... his talents are wasted on pimping bad movies and TV shows.

1257  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW and thier idiot quest programmer on: December 19, 2004, 01:39:15 AM
I've played pretty much exclusively Horde in the stress tests and open beta, and have a shaman at 32, with a roomie and a friend of mine being 32 and 33 themselves; we've never once lacked for quests, and most of the time I've had my quest log at least 3/4 full, and all I do is work on quests (can't stand grinding for too long).  A lot of the reason is perhaps that I go from one area to another, and travel back and forth trying to knock off my lowest-level quests before I outlevel them; it's good exp, easy, fast, and I've still generally had to abandon a quest or two every couple of levels because it's just not worth doing anymore (grayed out).
1258  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / ARRGHH!!!! Pulling hair out! Please help. on: December 17, 2004, 10:00:34 PM
Go PvE.  When you're in the mood for a scrap, run around the contested territories with your PvP flag on; I've never found most areas wanting for a fight or two, and usually you can get a pretty good 'pickup war' going by just running around a few folks with your PvP flag on.

Besides which, the PvP Battlegrounds system they're working on for PVP servers should provide exactly what you want; an area where you can go full PVP with objectives and areas to hold, but without getting in the way of questing elsewhere.

The only thing making mad props acceptable is when you, in jest of course, give specific numbers of them.

For example:
"That was clever.  You get two props."

That tends to annoy people who actually use it in conversations because they realize how dumb they sound.

Me, I'm waiting until I get enough props to trade for a turbojet.
1261  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [WoW] PvP just not for me? on: December 16, 2004, 09:30:21 PM
PVP is definitely not for me.  Besides, I don't see any incentive to go PVP for this game... there's never a shortage of people willing to duel or PVP-battle on the PvE servers, plus you get to play minus the aggravation of getting ganked when you really don't feel like it.  Yeah, PVP can be atmospheric and intense and fun, but if you turn your PVP flag on in PvE, you can get jumped just as easily by anyone high-level passing by (if that's your thing).
1262  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PC Gaming version: Shut up! It IS time to reveal your GOTY on: December 16, 2004, 09:27:05 PM
Tough one.  Can't we have Games of the Year, or maybe just one GOTY for every year's worth of quality titles we got this year (which would come out to about 5 for me)?

World of Warcraft, HL2, Far Cry, and Rome are all struggling to be my GOTY.  Been addicted to WoW, but just reinstalled Far Cry last night, and getting the urge to play HL2 again.

Remember, the forum post said that it's a sneak peek, not a full changelog.  If it seems like too little for your class/profession, there's probably more.  Also, one of the Blizz community reps said that druids were getting a little love in the upcoming patch, so hopefully there's some changes there.

Your characters aren't naked on the selection screen anymore.

So maybe the databases have been overhauled and the auction house and mail may work as intended finally.  That'd be very nice.

How have they not been working as intended before?  (aside from the blank message to send items bug).
1268  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST Recap on: December 14, 2004, 03:22:48 PM
So I see that ABC is planning to run the pilot episode over tomorrow at 9, and I read somewhere that they're going into a mini-recap cycle before it starts airing again in January; so are they just showing the pilot again, or are they going to run all the episodes aired so far again before they start showing new ones?

I really, really want to get into this show, but I think it would be worse to see the pilot and then jump straight into the 12th episode, or wherever they are.

Let addict roommate play for the price of getting to keep the character he's working on now when he gets a new account and starts over.

It started out as a nice bonus of not having to play Horde newbie zones again, but now he's outleveled me and I have a quite nice 31 rogue to show for it.

Considering that hockey was always my favorite pro sport, and that I hate the parade of suck that has become of most pro sports nowadays, I'm allmost glad they're locked out.  I miss the hockey, but it gives the owners and players time to start acting like professionals, realize they're only screwing over their fans and themselves, and maybe start acting like civilized people again.

Do all blue items bind when you pick them up?

No, because I've seen several blues in the AH.  However, I think the default behavior for blue items in instances and drops is bind on pickup.  I love that it discourages item farming for real money, but it's annoying seeing blue loot you could use get picked off by someone who's just going to VT it.
1275  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW -- Grouped with Morons on: December 09, 2004, 07:12:39 PM
That's nothing.  Picking up blue items that you can't use... WITHOUT asking if anyone else wants them... that's gypped me out of four blues already.  And only one guy (a guildie) understood and actually apologized.

But to the other three idiots, and any other ones in the future, you shall incur my eternally-green-item-clad wrath.

Black Hawk Down, especially if you've read the book and appreciate the reality behind the situation.  Sizemore is excellent in his role.

Princess Bride:  It's inconceivable that you haven't seen this.
