2401  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [TV] LOST tonight - 11/17 on: November 17, 2004, 10:11:49 PM
Quote from: "Rage"
Quote from: "Kurth"
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!

I love how you can use a flash light and a gun at the same time.  


What a freaking concept.


This game is so much better than the joke fest that is Doom 3.

Hey
Does this game have system link multiplayer?


Yup:

"Missions can be accomplished solo or with up to four people through split-screen, System Link, or Xbox Live and offer a wide variety of tasks. "

Coop over xLink anyone smile?

I think the load times are fine.  The first one when you're running up to the roof is the only one I've found to be annoying.  The others act as a much needed breather and opportunity for me to take my eyes off the screen for a moment. smile
2406  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ghost Recon 2 on: November 17, 2004, 08:51:14 PM
I think they should have waited till March or so to release it.

I'll be getting it though, for coop play.

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.

2410  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Soft water?! ARGGGHHHH! (New Apartment Woes) on: November 17, 2004, 05:01:52 PM
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.

You don't have to switch to First person to fire your weapon though, do you?  

I played it at E3 and that certainly wasn't the case.

I'm looking forward to playing through it coop with my friend.  Afer we finish Halo 2 and Men of Valor though.

I just got the machine gun too and finally figured out how to get out of the canal.  What a freaking awesome game.  It kind of creeped me out last night and I'm not even to the creepy part yet.  Those blades are insane though.  

I got to a point where I couldn't figure out how to move on but I can't think what it looked like so I really can't ask.  I'll try again during my lunch break today.

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.
2419  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half-Life 2 Impressions (Possible Spoilers) on: November 16, 2004, 08:27:53 PM
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

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

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.
