1241  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half-Life 2 Impressions (Possible Spoilers) on: November 16, 2004, 05:28:06 AM
I still prefer the clam before the storm.
1242  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2: Steam vs Retail on: November 16, 2004, 03:20:43 AM
Midnight PST.

Chalk another one up in the 'that's pretty cool' camp.
1244  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half Life 2: Countdown to November 16 on: November 16, 2004, 01:11:54 AM
The Steam forums are, without a doubt, one of the padded rooms of the Internet.  I'm almost sad when they're down, because it means all the people who post there are now bouncing around the rest of the Internet.
1245  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / "Numbers stations" - link to "Lost"? on: November 16, 2004, 01:09:14 AM
Okay, after listening to the article and checking out the CONET Project (you can get the 4-CD set as MP3s off of archive.org), that's pretty freaking neat.  Unsettling to fall asleep to, though.
1246  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss - Anyone else? (Guilty Pleasure) on: November 16, 2004, 01:07:14 AM
SPOILER ALERT:

It's Rupert Murdoch behind the door.  He's giving away his company in a bid to outdo Branson and save TV forever.

Okay, maybe not.  But you looked, didn't you?
1247  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Screw RX Med... on: November 16, 2004, 01:04:37 AM
Okay, I'm sick of this.  For the last hour today, and several times before, RX Med's stupid spam site has been popping up for almost every legitimate site I try.  NYTimes, FilePlanet, Steam, Gamespy, all of those are co-opted.  It's not on my computer's end, either; I've tried from different on-campus IP addresses, with different computers.  My machine is clean of spyware, and my hosts file is locked down tight.

Is this something I should be bitching to our 9-to-2 IT department about, or is it typical now to have mainstream sites hijacked for a day at a time?
1248  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half Life 2 - the reviews are in on: November 15, 2004, 08:44:20 PM
I'm hoping that those 'disappointing' aspects like story and AI are disappointing in comparison with the best imagined theoretical wonderful versions, and not in comparison to, say, Far Cry.  As a college student myself, I'm all for grading it on the curve instead.
1249  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Q] How did Halo 2 impact your life? on: November 15, 2004, 08:42:14 PM
Not a bit.  I have Tuesdays off anyway (love that MWF class schedule), so it was easy for me to wait up and then play until 3 and still not miss anything.  It would've had me tired on Tuesday night, since I was up again, but a 2:45 AM fire drill in the dorms meant that everyone was tired and cranky the next day.
1250  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / "Numbers stations" - link to "Lost"? on: November 15, 2004, 07:18:04 PM
Man, I keep forgetting I can get NPR over the net as well, especially with me not owning a radio.   :shock:
1251  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2: Steam vs Retail on: November 15, 2004, 06:59:32 PM
Also, it would be difficult to sell unless you have a buyer who trusts you quite a bit.  Because the unlocking is key-based, not CD-based, you could easily sell off the CDs to some poor clueless soul without the username and password of the Steam account that it was registered to.  I know I wouldn't trust someone to sell me a copy of HL2 that had been unsealed already.
1252  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 Graphics Glitches? on: November 15, 2004, 02:07:18 AM
Common problem, no solution, no solution planned for the future.
1253  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / OFFICIAL HALO2 CLAN NAME POLL on: November 13, 2004, 05:58:09 PM
I like Knightshade(s) as a backup.  It's not totally dumb or official-sounding, and not really likely to be taken.

Of course, I pity the poor fool who tries to restart THE CURSED HALO 2 POLL OF DEATH!
1254  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / No Movie for you! on: November 12, 2004, 11:20:40 PM
The FCC can't tell them what they can or can't air; that would be censorship.  They can only impose such hefty fines that it's not economically viable to air much of anything.
1255  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 12, 2004, 08:21:40 PM
Let's wait for KD.  He said his XBox would be up and running by today at the latest, so we'll at least give him a shot to give us the go-ahead to make an official unofficial temporary clan.

Good god, someone just start the damn clan.


Well, I was going to, but KD specifically said to hold off and let him do it.
1257  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 12, 2004, 07:42:57 PM
It's Friday night... any word on if we'll have something up and running tonight?
1258  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 - It's ON! (impressions thread) on: November 12, 2004, 06:03:15 AM
Yeah, I know the one you're talking about.  I got curious too, it offered to sign me off Live because co-op is only playable by split-screen or whatever.

I'm Halo 2'd myself for tomorrow night.  Look forward to jumping back in next week, though.
1260  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Good web hosting? on: November 12, 2004, 05:52:45 AM
It's a freaking big page with what looks like lots of CSS and such, but it loads and renders fine and fast on Firefox 1.0.  No slowdown here, and even the main page renders in under a second (at 12:52 AM here, I'll try again tomorrow prime-time).  Try going to the command line and running 'tracert undiscussion.com' and see if it's a Comcast server or something in between slowing you down.
1261  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 breaks all sorts of records... on: November 12, 2004, 05:49:47 AM
If MA2 just implements the virtual couch and some robust playlist modes like Halo 2 with the same core gameplay, it'll already be pretty impressive.  I'm coming to the conclusion that 50% of the enjoyability of Halo 2 on Live is the seamless integration of the party system, the matchmaking, and the well-thought out Friends interface.  If every online game could be like that, it would be wonderful.
1262  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 - It's ON! (impressions thread) on: November 12, 2004, 05:48:08 AM
I think when you try that it tells you that you can only do it on the same box.  I'm 99% sure that online co-op was dropped.

Buncha pussies...I hate morals when they are shoved daown my godamn throat. I was'nt going to watch it anyways because I was figuring all the words would be bleeped out..who the hell wants to watch that?..ill rent it if i want to see the real movie.


Nope.  When they say uncut, they mean it, F-bombs and otherwise.

Quote from: "Sepiche"
Well I take back a few of the harsher things I said about Halo 2.  I still think the single player is a big let down and that they dropped the ball on it, but I got to play some 2v2 on split screen last night, and man... it's really apparent they spent a lot of time getting the multiplayer just right.

We had some really great games doing nothing more than simple deathmatch.  If I ever decide to get XBLive I'll have to check out the online play as well, but as far as lan play goes I'm sold.

s


I would go so far as to say this game justifies XBLive in and of itself.  I've played some split-screen matches too, in teh dorm; 2v2 is fun, especially on the smaller maps, but you haven't played until you've played some 4v4 or more CTF.  When you have a fully loaded Warthog, two Ghosts, and a Banshee all rolling out on the offensive at once, it gets fairly epic fairly quickly.
1266  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 - It's ON! (impressions thread) on: November 11, 2004, 08:06:33 PM
For the people reporting graphical hiccups, what model XBox do you have?  Our dorm has one from original release, and mine is much more recent; a lot of the stutters that are noticable on the older one aren't on the new one.  I don't know if it's just the older DVD drives or what, but the pop-in and stutter don't feel as bad on the newer XBox.

I'd like to run it to keep it official if we can.  My Xbox died on me which is why this isn't already done before you guys even GOT your copies.  What bad timing.  As we speak, my staff is taunting me because I can't play...I can feel the love, its sticking sharply in my back!  I should be back on my feet today or tomorrow at the latest.


Sure thing.  With no word, I wanted to get it on its feet, but since you're going to be up and running that soon, I'll leave it to you.
1268  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 11, 2004, 07:35:59 AM
If nobody objects, I'm going to put up 'GoldRush' at around 6 tonight and start sending out invites.
1269  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 - It's ON! (impressions thread) on: November 11, 2004, 05:44:19 AM
After playing more of the multiplayer, it gets a hearty MP GOTY from me.  Just freaking amazing.
1270  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Anybody for Halo2? on: November 11, 2004, 05:36:34 AM
That was the best CTF match EVAR.  DarkEl, I hate you and your mad Banshee-cramming skills.
1271  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 11, 2004, 05:36:02 AM
Crazy 88s is taken.  Crazy 88 killers isn't.

I still like GoldRush, though.  Not taken, and full of Goldish goodness.
1272  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 11, 2004, 05:18:50 AM
Oh ehm EFF gee.  Just played an amazing game of CTF with DarkEl, TML, and the rest of the gang.  We NEED a clan, guys.  This is just too cool.
1273  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 11, 2004, 04:14:21 AM
I like GoldRush.
1274  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 10, 2004, 11:24:50 PM
Just toss some stuff off the top of your head, and let's pick a favorite.  I dunno... Brute Squad wouldn't probably be in the best taste anymore, and Wanderers are pretty MMORPG-ful.  There's got to be something cool-sounding and CG related.  The Knightshades, perhaps?
1275  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 10, 2004, 06:39:08 PM
Well, you can only be a member of one clan... as much as I'd like to start one and get into the game now, I think it's better if we make an 'official' decision.  I want to play in whatever Console Gold clan we come up with, but I don't want to join one now and then find that half of my friends have jumped ship to play another clan  if/when Ron starts one up later.  Stick together, team!

But that's just me.  Any other opinions?  Does anyone else want to start up the Wanderers?
1276  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's Wrong With You People??!?? on: November 09, 2004, 05:20:19 PM
I like to jump in offline and learn one or two maps and the controller setups before I go online, but that's it.  I'm not practicing headshots or anything, just where to go and what to do when I get there.
1277  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 09, 2004, 05:18:34 PM
What are we going to be named?  I know the old GG MMORPGers have 'The Wanderers', and it would be cool to have something with a little more zip than 'Console Gold' as the name.

Also, Gamertag is KeySJU, if someone gets around to creating and adding some names in.
1278  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best Game of All Time Round 3 Tie-breaker on: November 09, 2004, 03:19:36 PM
System Shock 2.
1279  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 - It's ON! (impressions thread) on: November 09, 2004, 03:02:26 PM
I guess I'm just lucky... the EB down the way had a few hundred show up, but the Gamestop right by the subway entrance, where I preordered, only had about 40, and I wes 8th in line.  Got my ass kicked in the tourney, and was out of the store by 12:15.
1280  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 09, 2004, 02:35:02 PM
Any movement on this?  I'm ready to go with it.
