Gambit has always been my favorite as well.

It looks like he is going to be in X3.  Wasn't that who they showed at the end of X2, as a kid playing cards?

How many more do we need for the league?  You should post a reminder at GG that the league has started and see if anyone over there is interested.

I was completely impressed with it at E3.  Stan Lee briefly looking over my shoulder as I played it was something else! smile  He was the most famous person I met at the convention, you?

I saw the Thief/Deus Ex creator (name just slipped my mind), Lord Whatever from Evercrack, Xibit from MTV's Pimp my Ride and a few others.

X-Men Legends doesn't really impress technically in terms of sound or visuals, but it's really all about the combat anyway. The fighting is simple, addictive, and enjoyable throughout the long adventure. It's nice to see the X-Men get their due with a game that truly showcases what has made the comics great for three decades. There are a few things that will annoy people, particularly the accidental suicides, but most of Legends is a joy. The story is good, very fitting for the X-Men universe, and every character but Cyclops is perfectly realized. It's more fun with friends, but is still enjoyable all by your lonesome. With a long, involved story mode and bonus modes beyond that, this one will take up a chunk of your life. X-Men Legends is a must for any X-Men fan or fan of dungeon-crawling RPGs.


In!

You guys should rethink and grab the Xbox version so we can all play!  Sounds like the console versions are the best this time.

We're getting dumped on right now though.  The weatherman said we may get 10+ inches of rain.  Chattanooga floods if we get 4 inches of rain so I simply can't imagine what would happen if we get over 10, or even 8 for that matter.

2705  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gameznflix on: September 16, 2004, 04:50:58 PM
I used to be a fairly large investor in Gameznflix.  

They just really haven't gotten things together though.  Their turnaround is apparently still horrendous and their system flawed (queues messed up etc.).

One thing that bugged the heck out of me when I went through the trial was that everything, regardless if it is released yet, shows up the same.

For example, under the Xbox games they had Fable listed all the way back in July.  You could queue it up and everything.  I hate that, and imagine many people who aren't in the know in regards to release dates get quiet confused.  

The price point is right.  The CEO has a vision.  The implentation to this point is not good.

Try the trial at least and tell me what I think.

For the record, I sold out my entire position at $0.14 (bought at .02), now it's selling at .02 again.

No way.  I'm content with the new one.  

I have no desire to go back and play the old ones, afterall that is what emulators are for.  (I own them, so no sweat).

I'm going to drag my g/f to see it with me this weekend.  She probably won't like it at all.

Is it at all based on Crimson Skies?  Of course that is the first thing I thought of when I saw it and the primary reason I want to see it.

" A Silicon Valley startup claims to have cracked one of most elusive goals of the software industry: a near-universal emulator that allows software developed for one platform to run on any other, with almost no performance hit.

Transitive Corp. of Los Gatos, California, claims its QuickTransit software allows applications to run "transparently" on multiple hardware platforms, including Macs, PCs, and numerous servers and mainframes."

"For example, Wiederhold said QuickTransit will allow the next-generation Xbox (which will have a Mac-like PowerPC chip) to run first-generation Xbox software (which was written for an Intel chip).

In demonstrations to press and analysts, the company has shown a graphically demanding game -- a Linux version of Quake III -- running on an Apple PowerBook.

"One of the key breakthroughs is performance," Wiederhold said. "You can't tell the difference between a translated application and a native application."


Very good news if true.

Can you CG guys confirm?
2718  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best Looking Xbox Game. Ever. on: September 13, 2004, 01:49:25 PM
Unreal Tournament is my favorite game of all time.  Period.  

I was also ranked extremely high in CTF in UT.  I thought UT2K3 sucked terribly bad and UT2K4 really brought the game closer to the original UT.  

Anyway, I kind of agree in regards to the graphics of this game.  Best Graphics ever, is just want teamxbox said so I quoted it.  I know one thing though, the new Unreal engine easily has the best graphics I've seen.

Quote from: "Driver"
I don't know too much about mods either, I just worry about it being some sort of Action Replay.

Eco, like I said no offense.  I posed the question and am interested in the replies.  Or you could clue in the clueless on what the mod does for you.  

Have a good one.


No problem Driver, I understand your concern, especially after playing CS for years.

A mod allowed me to upgrade my hard drive from 10 gigs, to 160 gigs.  Now I can play Divx, avi, wma, every type of video you can think of on my Xbox.  Also, it allows you to play emulators from Atari 2600, to Nintendo, SNES, Genesis, N64, Arcade, Turbo Grafix 16.  

Also, it does let me play Xbox games from the hard drive and make backups of Xbox games.  

Like I said though, the chip has a switch that must be turned off in order to play on Xbox Live, otherwise MS will ban the Xbox from Live.  

I've been looking forward to playing in the league and that is why I reacted as I did, sorry for that.

I hope everything is clear now? smile
