2243  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Catching up - The Shield on: June 03, 2005, 03:12:00 PM
I love the Shield.  It is my #2 favorite show of all time, right behind 24.

I am trying to get my parents to watch it.  They are NYPD Blue nuts, and recently told me they think they have seen every episode of it.

I told them they have got to start watching the Shield.  They would love it!

interesting points:

1) IBM drew on the results of the same Broadband Processor Architecture (BPA) initiative that produced the Playstation 3's Cell processor in order to furnish the next-generation Xbox with a truly next-generation core that looks set to last at least the five-year life of the average game console.

2) Codenamed Xenon, the multicore PowerPC CPU that IBM designed for the Xbox 360 boasts a number of unique features that set it apart from any microprocessor seen to date.

3) MOST INTERESTING: This patent (patent number 20050099417) that Microsoft was recently granted covers a method for using procedural synthesis to do real-time skinning of 3D characters. The basic idea behind the patent appears to be as follows. Artists using standard tools (i.e.., motion capture, 3D rendering tools, etc.) generate a character model along with a series of key poses in an animation for that model. This model consists of a set of bones that have been skinned with a deformable skin.
here is the patent link: http://appft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph...&RS=20050099417

I'll find a show that the wife enjoys as well and put bit torrent to work.  Maybe the Sopranos, as we have never seen them before.
2249  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Motor Storm Looks so good I'm slightly rethinking... on: May 18, 2005, 02:23:13 AM
I simply cannot believe how good/insanely fun motor storm looks.  I have already preordered the Xbox 360, but it Motorstorm has honestly made me question that decision...

I absolutely love Live! though.  

Ah!  Decisions...  One thing is for sure, I will not be getting both (I'm married now...).

2251  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox 360] Final Fantasy XI on: May 17, 2005, 07:33:59 PM
Not only regarding the new systems.  The shift began during the last generation.  

I heard for months,"there will never be a mgs or ff, or gta title on Xbox etc."  Well there has already been.

For the record I think both mgs and FF suck.

Sad.

You mean no show at all for E3?  That is sad.


Yup.

According to IGN, a Kameo video came on whenever it was supposed to be PD.  Accident?  Nah, they realized how hard everyone blasted what little was shown of the game on MTV.
2253  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Nintendo Revolution on: May 17, 2005, 06:42:44 PM
I’m confident they could fit every title ever made on the NES and SNES on one of the discs.  

They take under a gig of space on my Xbox’s hard drive! smile

No longer exclusive.

The also lost GTA & MGS.

Maybe it isn't a big deal.  I sure heard a ton of people scream no FF on the Xbox so I'm not getting it blah blah blah.

I think the games are horrid  anyway.

FFXI has been on PS2 for two years.  Losing FFXI is not a loss.  It won't be significant unless 360 gets a new numbered FF game.


LOL.  

The simple fact that there will be a FF game on the Xbox is big news.  Sony exclusives are dwindling.

I dislike the games with a passion.  But many seem to think they are the holy grail of gaming so i thought you all would be interested.

If someone posted this already, sorry.

Sony's list of exclusives continues to decline.
2259  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So where do you stand right now? on: May 17, 2005, 03:25:07 PM
Xbox 360 only for me.  Who said it's going to be $500?  If it's $500 there is no way in hell I am going to get it.  I don't think that is the case though…
2260  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ever find a game you were TOO good at? on: May 16, 2005, 04:10:42 PM
I am better at Unreal Tournament than anyone I know.  I have never been so good at a game (not 2K4 really, I am good at it but not like UT).

I entered a tournament for UT and won by a huge margin.  It was 2 on 2 and my teammate is pretty decent as well.  Still though, most games I had 90% of the points.  

I love UT.  It's my favorite game ever made.

The Xbox didn't have RPG's with little kids and hours of cut scenes no.

If you're bashing Japanese RPGs, does that mean you think the news of Hironobu Sakaguchi developing for the Xbox 360 is a bad thing?


Nah, it's definitely a good thing for people that like those type of rpg's.  To say the Xbox doesn't have any good rpgs is ludicrous though.

KOTOR 1 and 2, and Jade Empire are imho, the best rpgs released in the past 5 years.

I preordered one today as well, from EB though (only $20 down).

I went to pick up the logitech psp case and saw that they were taking preorders and couldn't resist.  

I can't wait!

Sloppy seconds?  

The games are more refined on the Xbox...  I can use my own music in them...

I hardly consider that sloppy.

Bit daft considering that the Playstation 2 has all the Japanise RPGs and the GTA series. If you're into RPGs, the P2 is the machine to get. I brought the XBox and was disappointed.

The new XBox sounds great, but the launch line-up is pretty dull. If they had a Bioware, Lionhead, GTA  or Final Fantasy they might have convinced me.


The box has GTA also.  

I think MS should be slapped for letting such a sloppy show be the unveiling of the 360.  

Anyway, I will be pre-ordering one, unless of course something changes and Sega announces they are going to make a college football game using an upgraded ESPN football engine, then I will buy whatever the hell it comes out on.  (GRR EA!! )

2270  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 2? PS3? Revolution? PC? Check out the screens... (56k) on: May 02, 2005, 05:45:42 PM
Quote from: "Ralph-Wiggum"
FWIW (which is probably nothing), a small part of an article in the most recent EGM said that they've heard that some "big name developers" are switching their games from X-Box 360 to PS3 because the PS3 is vastly more powerful. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if such graphics were possible in the next generation systems.


Likely just fanboi speculation (not on your part).

2276  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lumines Tips? on: April 28, 2005, 12:50:08 PM
My high score on Lumines is aroud 40k.  Please share tips for this game, the best puzzle game ever made...

I don't think I quiet understand the combo system, or exactly how to use the blocks with a jewel in them.  Occasionally when one of the special blocks comes up, everything turns grey and I clear almost the whole board, then other times it doesn't do that.  

Thanks in advance!

Anyone else feel kinda like they're in a trance whenever playing lumines?  I flew to Philly last week from Chattanooga ,TN, and played it the whole way.  I hardly even looked up...

Great game, great system!

There is money to be made going both directions.  

By the way, the dollar was the single best performing asset in the nation for the first quarter of 2005.

May of you know that I invest in penny stocks for fun, and profit if possible.  Well I started my penny stock account with $500 and have since doubled it (in a little over a year).  

I have now decided to try my hand at trading foreign securities.  The forex is absolutely facinating.  Things move so fast it's hard to keep up.  

I opened a demo accout with $2,000 (read, not real money).  If I double this account I will open up an actual trading account with Oanada.  

I am keeping track of my progress at

http://ontheright.us

I made the first trade in the demo today for a profit!  Time will tell how I end up.

If anyone has any insight on forex please share!
