Quote from: "Zagreus"
is there a level cap?

if I can level up in the "training room" I'm a little concerned about maxing out my characters before finishing the game.

I don't think there is. I had to redo some missions in the Training Room a few times, and gained a ton of exp as a result, but while I needed an absolute ton of exp to gain the next level (in the millions, easily), I never hit any kind of cap.

See, I knew there was an easy to remove method. Just didn't know what it was/where to look.

I still recommend you switch to Firefox anyway. biggrin

gotta run, thanks!

So, then - Bullwinkle, want to take another stab at an image since you were the last one to guess correctly?

I'll second the co-op mode fun!  I've had a blast with it by myself, but it really gets interesting with 2 or 3 other people playing alongside you.  The cries of 'watch where you're throwing that barrel!' and 'I was going to kill that!' are quite amusing.

That and some special combos like the Fastball Special (take a melee powerhouse like Rogue or Colossus and throw another character, especially Wolverine) are hard to pull off in single player.

Nobody really knows what Square has planned in its Final Fantasy line. They might make a ton of cash in sells of FF1 and FF2, so they'll decide to just port the Wonderswan version of FF3 (which is essentionally what FF1 and FF2 are, to my knowledge) to the GBA as well.

By the way, I am now trying to hunt down a cheap, working Virtual Boy.  Thanks, Destructor.

*evil laugh*

My work here is done. biggrin

eBay might be a good place to start. They aren't cheap however, as they're kinda rare nowadays. And, no, you can't have mine. smile

Edit: Now that I think on it, I should finish my Atari Lynx collection as well. Two consoles, a whole ton of accessories, and every single game that was ever released in the US (in addition to a few homebrew titles) short of just a few... eBay, here I come!

Well, I've posted my review of X-Men Legends for the Xbox, so in CG tradition, this post is to discuss any thoughts about my review or the game itself.

Personally, I found it a pretty fun single player title, but it's far more fun with a few friends over thanks to the pretty stupid AI in your teammates.

Any questions or thoughts? Ask away. It's a boring day at work, so I need something to talk about. smile

And while it's been said before, I might as well say it again - we here at Console Gold welcome everybody from across the street at Gone Gold. It's getting a bit crowded though, so I recommend you bring your own chair or sleeping bag. smile

Yes, I know that this isn't the answer you're looking for, but...

Get Firefox...

Built in ad-blocking (which can be easily enhanced by a plugin), built in pop-up blocking, mouse based gesturing (plugin) that drastically increases the ease of the web... Oh, and none of the security flaws that IE has.

To answer your question though, yes, there is a way to delete Flash/Shockwave after you've installed it, but I don't know the command offhand to see/edit what's been installed in your browser. Now that I think on it though, I thought that Service Pack 2 for WinXP was going to do that as an option...

Well, clearly that's the Virtual Boy, so after some research:  Teleroboxer.

Never heard of it.  Can you get Virtual Boys cheap now?

Virtual Boys were cheap when they vanished off of store shelves. Hell - I got the console for $20 and the games for $5 to $10 apiece at my local Blockbuster when Nintendo discontinued them. My stand for the console is busted, and I'm short one (maybe two) of the games to make a complete and total set of everything ever released, but it was a fun console.

Too bad it ruined the development of one's eyes for any kid 12 and younger. smile

Anyway, you're right with your game, so go post away.

It sure does....I remember a stack of them on top of a trashcan..do you?

Yeah, that I do. I think I still have that photo lying around somewhere.

In all honesty though, this was a good game if you liked the traditional MMO formula. The best part though (IMHO) was the instanced dungeons. It allowed you and your team to get away from the crowds and the kill-stealing, tucking you away from the rest of the world in a dungeon all of your own.

Since then, most MMOs have them. Go figure.

Let's try something a bit different. And harder:

So my brother didn't really own many games growing up, and he would try to play them when I wasn't around to piss me off.  For the most part I didn't care, because most of his games didn't interest me... except for two of them - Contra (NES) and this one:

Well, I'm out on this one. Looks like pre-NES and post Atari 2600, but beyond that I have no clue.

still no clue.  What system was it on?

Based on the low end graphics and the resolution of the screenshot, I'm guessing NES. Maybe the Master System. *shrugs*

I just dug through my listing of NES games and nothing popped to mind. I do think us gamers are stumped on this one.

Quote from: "pr0ner"
I forgot that N64 prices were in this range, too.  I just read on IGN's XBox site that Conker's Bad Fur Day for N64 retailed for $70.

I bought that game the day it came out, and I know that there was no way in hell that I paid that kind of cash for that game.

Back in my younger days, I remember all SNES and Genesis carts running $50, the industry standard. Short of Phantasy Star 4 (which I remember was like $70 when it came out), and Virtua Racing (included some extra chips for the console), I remember the standard pricing.

That doesn't sound all that great to me.  I was hoping more like $5 for classic games.  frown  Still no word on when it's coming out.

Considering how easy it is to 'find' some of these old classics, as well as companies selling 10-15 classics for $50 (or cheaper), that price seems outrageously steep.

Don't forget that you have a large number of Collector's Editions of Halo 2 out there.  Although they aren't much more expensive, the profit margin on those should be a bit nicer.

For $5 more you get a ton more stuff. Methinks the profit margin is less on those, personally.

Actraiser?

Yes, I can personally confirm that this game is Actraiser. What a classic. You're up.

And as far as that Darkstalkers pic goes... It could also be Night Warriors on the Sega Saturn (import) or some uber-combo game that had all the Night Warriors/Darkstalkers games on one disk for the Dreamcast (also import). No, I'm not a gaming geek. smile

I also stand by my position that FF6/3 was the best of Square's titles (and, yes, I've played them all since then).
15352  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 06, 2004, 05:51:04 AM
And the amazing part is that I only remember seeing Mr. Bones on the back of my brother's Saturn box. We never owned it.

Anyway, for my next image, I bring your way this classic RPG from when story and plot meant far more than graphics and sound. This game was from a time when there was no FMV, no CGI movies, and no Dolby Digital Surround Sound. It was also (IMHO) Square's (or Square Enix, or Squenix, or whatever they call themselves now) best RPG they've ever made:

15355  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 03, 2004, 03:40:34 AM
Well, you're right, Dimmona, it was Stun Runner on the Lynx.

I heard that it might've come out on some recent combo release, but I'm not sure about that offhand.

As for your non-console shot ( smile ), it's from either Call of Duty or the expansion of the game. Nice explosion though.

War Gods? Ye Gods.

And as far as your image - Dragon Force on the Saturn. Excellent game and a pain in the ass to beat.

Back to the classics. For fun, name the game AND the console it was on.

I thought that Pit Fighter was the contender for worst fighting game ever, but I can tell that this game isn't it.

What it is exactly I have no idea though.

Wait...now that I look at it, it looks like a horrible fighting game out of the '64-bit' Jaguar console. What was it called... Way of the Warrior, or something like that?
15359  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 01, 2004, 01:29:25 PM

I have to say, I never played Body Harvest.

Conker's Bad Fur Day absolutely rocked though. "I, am, the Great Might Poo, and I'm going to throw my shit at you." biggrin
