hey guys how do i get the buggy turned back over at the start of the level?  i'm pushing the use button to no avail frown


give it a kick with the ol grav gun


And make sure you have the grav gun selected before you get into the buggy-then when you fall, you can get out and shoot asap hopefully before you loose any health from the ants.

Oh, btw, they can't swim.

And as an asside, I think so far this is my favorite level- the way you go for a bit then pull over for stuff to happen then move on is just great.


I liked it too.  The bridge was pretty intense.  I fell a few times and it actually took my stomach  :shock:

Thanks for the feedback. Interesting. Yeah, that sounds expensive (especially since I'm saving for an HDTV Tongue) but I bet it's fun as hell if you get into the higher class cars, and have tracks to go to.

I'd definitely be more interested in dirt tracks, and gettin' my ride all muddy.

I wonder how durable are the $300 - $500 cars, and do the tracks generally cost money to use? $400 doesn't sound that bad, when you consider it's just a video card, heh. I wouldn't think twice about dropping 4 bills on a vid card.


2 Video Cards, (6600, all ya need)!

I just passed the buggy level and the game is as good as ever!

Ravenholm was scary as heck.  Glad I'm passed it (it was great though).

I loved the first 5 levels also. The atmosphere of City 17, the tension of being hunted, the high speed chases...had a blast with all of it.


I also loved the first 5 levels, and just passed Ravenholm and the game is the best game I've played, ever.

I just entered Ravenhold last night in HL2 and it is quiet intense.  In fact, it's the scariest game I've played (as I said earlier, I haven't played many).  It is a lot of fun though.  I love all the different traps you can use and the sounds are fantastic.  Can't wait to finish the level though smile

Well after two days I finally got the freakin game to work.  Horrible install process.

Anyways, I just finished Water Hazard and to be completely honest... I'm not enjoying myself very much at all. I can easily rank Far Cry over Half Life 2. In fact, I almost could rank Doom 3 over this. Still its only the first third of the game so hopefully it will dramaticaly improve.


Different strokes of course, but the games you mentioned shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath as Half Life 2.

Quote from: "Rage"
I thought it was a mediocre episode, but still worth watching. I dont like the Kate-Sawyer angle. I thought kate and Jack had immediate chemistry, and sometimes if you are going with a love story, you dont need a triangle, just let it happen and take it from there. I am a big jack fan too, I have a feeling that his shame is nothing criminal, but probably either his failing as a doctor or a decision not to practice or something like that. The promos for next week leave me kind of bleh, too. The pregnant chick is not very compelling at all.


Why is she not compelling?

2413  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's the truly scariest pc gaming experience you've had? on: November 18, 2004, 04:56:30 PM
So last night I was playing HL2 and about pissed myself.  I'm not even to Ravenholm yet.  It was right before the air boat section, I was looking for some ammo and I moved a box only to have a headcrab or whatever their called jump at me.  The thing is my cat literally jumped up onto my leg at the same time (seriously, the same time).  I actually yelled.  

So, I have Ravenholm to look forward to eh?  I've never really played many horror games, RE 1 being the only one I really ever played all the way through.  Since it's HL2 it won't matter how scary it is I'll finish it but playing scary games in an apartment by yourself is a bit crazy  :shock:

Eco, you have no idea of what is still in store for you. I finished the air boat saga last night and if that was a game by itself I would have been happy. There were so many times when I'd round a corner at full speed and something would happen that I would literally shout "OH MY GOD!!" that I lost count. The car, the helicopter chases, the G-Man sightings, and on and on and on. I'm lovin' it. biggrin


Yea, I've already been amazed.

I really couldn't believe it when that huge brick tower collapsed right in front of me, or the car.  I had my speakers cranked up and was almost standing up playing it I was so on edge.   Do you know if the rocket launcher that is being shot at you will be available to use later in the game?  Just curious.  The rockets look so good I would love to be able to fire the weapon myself.  I want a multiplayer mode in this same setting so bad.  

The game is number 2 on  my all-time list, creeping up on Unreal Tournament.  UT could very well be dethroned...

I love the puzzles in the game. To me they were all intuitive and they require some thought...however on a second playthrough they should be able to be solved quickly, thus none of them are busywork or a pain. Very good design.


I agree completely.

I was also stuck on that part with the metal grate floor, where jessie was stuck.


Now I'm at the very end of the air boat section and the only reason I quit is because I was blow up by a few rockets.  

No I have to work and can't play till this evening.  This game has it's hooks completely in me.

I think HL 2 is an evolution for the genre.  I know I sure as hell haven't played anything like it before.  It's already in my top 3 favorite games of all time and I just got past the air boat section.  The game is a freaking masterpiece.  I've had so many memorable moments already, and jumped out of my seat a couple times as well, and I'm not even to the creepy part yet.  

The graphics are better than anything else, the gameplay is better tha anything else, the environment is better than anything else, the game is on a whole new level and has raised the bar, again.

P.S. "Stars" for reviews are weak IMHO.  Quantify your reviews so they mean something.


I agree with you 100%. If your review only scored the game as a 90% I wouldn't really be interested in it. But since you ranked it at 94%, oh boy, thats a whole 4 more units of fun - A MUST BUY!.

I can't wait for tonight's episode.  For one, I'm really interested in getting some backstory on Sayid.  And two, I'm dying to know if that women in the promo is the French Lady or if it's a flash back.

If Sayid ends up getting tortured tonight, just as he's wandered away on a guilt-induced walkabout due to his torturing of Sawyer, there's no doubt in my mind that the Island's powers are directly tuned in to the personal crises of the survivors.  

BTW, I'm a die hard Philadelphia Eagles fan, and while making my daily visit to their website, I saw an interview with CB Lito Sheppard (who had a brilliant 101 yard INT return for a TD on Monday night).  In the interview, Lito talked about how much he's into Lost, and he had the following analysis:

Quote
The show I have been watching lately on Wednesday nights is 'Lost.' It's pretty interesting. It kind of has that purgatory theme, where it seems like everyone has been put there for a reason. The only thing about it is whether the people are alive or dead. When a plane crashes, there can be survivors, but that many? That's a lot of survivors.  Maybe it is a purgatory with all of the magical stuff going on. It's going to have some odd twist to it. The doctor is on the right path. Instead of waiting for people to come and get them, they're surviving and making their own civilization.


Do you want some spoilers? I know what the deal is with the lady in todays episode-or at least the basic details.


It's only a few hours away, don't do it!

The water in Lawrence, KS, is definitely soft.

Soft water is, basically, water that has a low levels of mineral content, while hard water includes more minerals. Hard water can dry out your skin (so it's bad for my exema), but it is also much better at getting things clean since it has a bit of "grit" to it. With soft water, I feel like I have to scrub to get soap off my body.


Thanks!  I definitely have hard water at my apartment.  I don't like soft water either.  My grandmother has softwater and slick towels and it takes me a good 15 minutes to dry off.

I have experienced both soft and hard water and the main thing I have found is how hard it is to dry off with one of them (don't know which one)

What does soft and hard actually mean in regard to the makeup of the water though?

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.


Eco-Logic, let me introduce you to the copying machine.  :lol:

If it's important enough to work on and give to your boss you should be making a copy of it for this very reason. When it's lost, you have your copy and your not redoing work.

Next thing you're going to tell me is that your office is too cheap to have a copy machine, right?  :lol:


Nah, we have one slywink  I will start copying everything I do now for sure.

Guess what I just found out though?  She didn't take it home at all, she put it in the marketing directors box...  For no reason.  She told me she took it home to work on it...

Gah.

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.
