OK, back to xLink slywink

It truly rocks.  I played for 2 hours last night and had a great time.  No lag at all.

Yea, well trying a game out can be done legally by renting a game. You wouldn't save hundreds of dollars unless you decided to go ahead and use/keep a game as if you had bought it, beyond just trying it out.
.


2 games I was going to purchase on day 1:

Kingdom Under Fire & Men of Valor.

I tried both before they were released, quickly realized KUF isn't close to being my cup of tea and that MOV rules.  

I didn't spend $50 on KUF and bought MOV.  Saved $50, and spent $50 on something I was already sure of smile

That's just one example.

I unlocked it during my lunch break and played for about 15 minutes.  Wow.  I'm absolutely floored by how great the game is.  I can't believe how awesome the npc animations are and I can't wait to get home and play more.  2.5 more hours.

Subtitles can be turned on of off. They are off by default.

The game (like CS:Source) supports widescreen displays as well.


Oh excellent! Subtitles-less games is the bane of my existence. I hated Half-Life for that sole reason.

I applaud Valve for putting subtitles in this one. I'm sold. It'll have to wait until next week however, I left my PC at home. smile


You have a hearing disability Raven?  Just curious.  I'm glad the subtitles are on it to, it seems like it should be a no-brainer.

"The only games I ever buy anymore are Xbox Live games and any other game I plan on actually playing more than a few times (ie. prince of persia etc.) I have saved $100's of dollars already by not buying mediocre games."


I'm not following how you saved $100's of dollars, unless you mean you've been able to play "mediocre" games without compensating the authors for their work ?
.


I've been able to play mediocre games without compensating the authors for their work, that is correct.  If a game is good enough for me to play more than one time, I buy it knowing what I'm spending my $ on.  An example would be Kingdom Under Fire.  The absolute most cheesy voice acting I have heard in years and gameplay that I don't enjoy.  I had planned on picking it up on launch day but decided to try it out before launch to make sure I want to spend my $ on it.  Glad I tried it.   Tongue

Is this the same boss who pulled the  "I told you to do this" presentation thing on you after you sendt a letter to your coworker about her?  Or was that someone else?

  Sounds like you might be on her bad side now and she won't be sad to see you go. (If I have my stories straight)


Yup, same boss.

I hope my situation works out as well as yours did Jag. smile

Eco,

Let us know what you think after looking at it briefly.

As over-hyped as it was, I wasn't disappointed and I'm wondering if you will be after our gushing.

And ESPN football is awesome. Love your sig.


Thanks, the sig is 100% accurate smile  

I didn't actually mean I was going to be sick due to all the gushing, I meant that I wish I could say I was sick so I could get off and play it myself instead of reading about you all playing it smile

Acquire Bioware.  They are easily the finest developers in North America today.
You can't do a hostile takeover of a privately held company.  I don't see any incentive for Bioware to submit to being purchased and made into a single platform developer when they can pretty much write their own ticket on any platform they want.  Just look how gleefully they bandy about the fact that Dragon Age doesn't have a publisher.  They know they are both consummate developers and consummate salespeople with an in-demand product.


MS is pretty good at creating incentives though.  smile

So I worked on something for an hour & a half on Friday for my boss and she just asked me for it.  I put it in her box Friday.  She said she took it home with her to work on (she didn't work on shit).  So now I have to do it again.  

In other news, I have an interview on Friday doing the same thing I'm doing now but making $14K more a year with $10K+ bonus potential.  I really hope it works out.

Purchasing Rare wasn't stupid.


They haven't done much yet I know.

Conker:  Live and Reloaded is going to light up Xbox Live though and I'm certain you'll see a new Killer Instinct game on the next Xbox.

Also, I have heard a rumor that they are working with Bungie on developing Halo 3 smile


I think MS will narrow the gap the next generation.  

As for exclusives,  I think the Xbox has the better exclusives this time around so what do I know.  The only games on the ps2 that I would like are R&C & Jak.

I just found something interesting on the Halo 2 ending that people are complaining about (with good reason it seems).

If you finish the game on Legendary, the credits roll and say "Coming February 9th"... but no one seems to know what that refers to.

I just thought that maybe, just maybe, it could be some downloadable content with new levels for the campaign, with a "true ending".  It could be anything though, of course. I'm definitely curious.


I've heard it threw the grape vine that Rare and Bungie are working on Halo 3 together and that will be announced on Feb. 9th. smile

And I'm serious.

The highlight of the night was when I respawned helpless high on a structure after my wraith was shotdown. My wife flew up in her wraith, I jumped on top of the canopy, and then we continued the fight (her flying carefully) with me gunning on top as a ride-a-long grunt. Fun game.


I believe you're talking about The Banshee, not the wraith.  If you had a wraith in the air I you should have taken video of it slywink

Quote from: "Jeff Jones"
I used my blockbuster gamepass to pick this up today. I'm pretty impressed so far. You were definitely right about the language. They hold nothing back.

Isn't it odd that MOH had no foul language, or even blood IIRC, and it was for the PC platform, which is supposedly geared towards adults. On the console, supposedly geared for the younger crowd, they go all out with the language and blood.

Anyway, I can see my delving deeper into this one, it seems pretty cool.

If anyone knows, how are the save checkpoints, is there a lot of having to play and replay the same areas over and over?


My friend and I had to replay the same area a few times.  It was rewarding though.  It was on the swift boat mission.  At the end of it you have to take the bridge and it's pretty tough.  There is a machine gunn on the bridge and a ton of enemy soldiers.  It took us 3 times to pass it, and when we finally passed it only one of us made it (me).  Luckily there is a check point after that part so we were able to move on.
2226  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 Graphics Glitches? on: November 15, 2004, 04:45:56 PM
I'm playing the game off the hard drive so that may or may not have something to do with me not seeing many glitches.
2227  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 Graphics Glitches? on: November 15, 2004, 02:32:20 PM
I just don't see all the problems people are talking about.  Sure, during some cut scenes there is some clipping or pop-in, but not often.  The game is beautiful, imho.

Alice, I agree completely.  Men of Valor is awesome.  My friend and I were going through it coop up until Halo 2 came out.  Now we're going to beat that, but we'll go right back to finish Men of Valor.  The swift boat level is pretty darn fun to, hard, but fun.  

Very good game that should be checked out by any fan of FPS's.
2231  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / OK I GIVE! IM OVERLOADED on: November 14, 2004, 03:27:02 PM
Backlogged as well.


I'm playing Halo 2 and Men of Valor coop with a good friend.  Also, I just started the new LOTR game but I'm not sure about it yet.   On the PC I'm playing Medal of Honor Pacific Assault and Counterstrike:  Source, while waiting on HL2 to come out.  

I also have a campaign going on in Rome Total War that I Would like to finish.

Normally I wouldn't touch a Dell product, but you gotta admit, this LCD looks sweet. I don't like the audio bar thingy either, but the good news is, it's removable. Notice the S-Video-in there... That means I can ditch my crappy TV. And it's only $800, and knowing Dell and their crazy coupons, I could probably get this for $600 or so.

I'm seriously considering buying this.


I must ask why you wouldn' ttouch a Dell product?

I'll continue to build my own computers, but I've found them to be pretty darn good for the money for family and friends.

I have found that I actually prefer the xLink Kai systemlink setup over the Live setup in Halo 2.

Of course it's the only option I have now that I've been banned, but I did play a good amount of Halo 2 on live at my friends house and the xLink setup seems just as good if not better.

I advise running in dmz, because you forfeit the little protection provided by the router.  Unless you also have software firewalls running on all the connecting client computers, this is a Very Bad Thing (tm).

You don't advise him to run in dmz correct?  Just want to clarify.  The hardware protection provided by a router is much better than a software solution.

Yup, and live out his dream of being in the wild.
