2761  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DOOOOOM 3 Gold! on: July 15, 2004, 01:37:47 PM

For what it's worth, I noticed no pauses while playing the Xbox version at E3.

Also, it didn't make it into my top 5 games of the show.

Still, this is exciting because I will more than likely purchase it regardless.


Now this is what I don't understand.  Why would you purchase it regardless?  What feature of the game makes it so that it is an instant purchase?  I'm not trying to be antagonistic here, but more understand why people are willing to suspend their normal rules for analyzing a game and it's merits based on its brand.


Because I'm in the mood for a horror FPS.  It really depends on when it comes out though.  There are so many games coming out between now and the end of the year.

Games that I know I will purchase regardless:

ESPN Football (real soon!)
Burnout 3
Brothers in Arms
Halo 2
KOTOR2
POP2
Jade Empire
Conker (more than likely)

Maybe Doom 2 slywink

I watched the trailer on the XBox Demo disc and wasn't that impressed with the console version.  There were some pauses which may just be for the trailer, but I wouldn't be surprised to see some kind of slow down in the actual game.   To it's benefit, the trailer did look pretty creepy, but I'm sure it'll be tons better on the PC.

I really do feel that McNair is the best QB in the league, or at least equat to Manning.

If only he didn't get hurt so often.  Still, I also think he is one of the toughest QBs to ever play the game smile
2764  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN JULY 20th date is now OFFICIAL on: July 13, 2004, 07:52:24 PM
They should have made a Steve McNair Box... frown

I would buy it if it had Bart Simpson on the front though.

That is great Lockdown.

By the way, I updated the Participants page, please email me or post here if I missed anyone or if anything is incorrect.  Also, if you're on the list please shoot me your email address so I can add it to the page if you don't mind.  That way everyone can communicate easier once the tournament starts.  

Off work now, bbl.

whatever though, not worth my time.

ESPN Football has been supeior to Madden since it's debut on the Dreamcast. Never let anyone tell you different.


Thanks Graham.  A word I have spelled wrong more than once I'm sure.  It just doesn't feel right when I type it.

What's EB doing now?

5 games (almost any games) and you get it for free.  That is a lot of games I know, but when you can buy them for $4.99 that isn't too bad.
2779  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Loving the heck out of Spider-Man 2 on: July 06, 2004, 02:58:48 PM
Where did you get it for $20?  

I'm going to go to CC at lunch today and see if I can buy 4 of their $5 games, and trade them in at EB for Spiderman.
2780  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which XBOX games support widescreen? on: July 06, 2004, 12:22:26 PM
Quote from: "Graham"
Eco, to get any of the HDTV lovin' goodness, you need the MS HD AV pack.  Once you have that in, you will change the dashboard to widescreen.  Once that is done, the games automatically detect your settings.

You will plug in the MS HD AV pack into the Pelican System Selector Pro component inputs, and then the System Selector into the TV.  You will need component to get the 16:9, unless you play the game with everything "stretched."  It won't be high definition though.


Ah!  Got it.  I will purchase the pack this weekend.  Thx.
2781  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden/ESPN NFL on: July 06, 2004, 12:14:52 PM
denoginizer:  I agree on all of your points.  The ability to actually play defense as a safety is what I've always loved about 2K.  

Anyway, I should work now.
2782  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden/ESPN NFL on: July 06, 2004, 02:32:14 AM
In my opinion, ESPN and NFL2K's before it exceed Madden in both gameplay and presentation by large margins.

Sounds like you have made a good decision for this year smile

The website is up.  It isn't finished, but it'll do for now.

ESPN 2K5 Consolegold Tournament



Email me if you have any suggestions or questions.  Also, for now I'm using an excel bracket.  If you have something better let me know.  I couldn't find a php one anywhere.
2784  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which XBOX games support widescreen? on: July 02, 2004, 06:34:02 PM
That is a great website.  Thanks for the link.

I also have a widescreen TV and a few questions.  

When I start a game, for example ESPN Football, do I have to change the setting myself (in the dash board or something)?  

I haven't purchased the MS Advanced Video pack or whatever it's called, becaues I think I'm just going to go with the Pelican System Selector.  In order to utilize the 16:9 on games do I have to have it hooked up with component cables?
2785  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Poncho Memorial CG X-Box ESPN NFL 2K5 Tourney -Team Requests on: July 01, 2004, 07:15:48 PM
Hell, now that I have a website I suppose I could run the tournament smile

Let me know and I will be more than happy too.  It doesn't seem all that hard anyway, just make a bracket and fill them in as people email me the results.  I can handle that.

It's confusing enough as it is, now they are adding even more crazy stuff to Madden, like the QB evade.  For some reason I always forget which shoulder button is lateral, which usually costs me at least one game per season.


QB Evade is being added to ESPN 2K5.

Eco...was your first football experience with NFL 2Kx?  I could see where someone coming from that would not like the Madden mechanics.


No, pretty much it was like this.

8 bit:  Tecmo Bowl

16 bit:  Madden

32 bit:  Madden / Sony's football (forget the name atm)

Dreamcast:  2K (from here on 2K)

Xbox:  Madden at first, 2K as soon as it came out and never looked back.

I think gameplay-wise, the Madden engine sucks monkey balls compared to ESPN's.  

It isn't as if I haven't given the Madden engine a chance either.  On the day the Xbox was released, I purchased Halo, PGR & Madden.

On the day NCAA 2003 was released, I purchased it.

I have given both games plenty of time and patience and I still feel with all my might that the ESPN engine is absolutely superior in every single area.  I can't even stomach going from one engine to the other.

It's a shame too, because I really want a college football game (any word on another Sega one?).

I think I'm going to have to trade in some games to pick this one up.

The only problem is I am gradually getting a collection of games that I don't ever want to part with (ie. Prince of Persia, Halo, KOTOR).  I guess I could trade in Links, even though I love it (knowing I'll be buying the new one soon), Syberia & Amped 2 (reached a serious plateau here).

Sweet, I can't wait.  I just need the cash and I'm set.

Tim mentioned that the voice acting is done by the actual actors.  I read that Toby is the only one who is actually used.  Just pointing that out.  It may be wrong though.

I think that is a great idea.

Maybe have pages for games in development, with a wiki or something similar on it so whenever a member of CG finds some new news on the game or something they can post it.  

I voted for Game Specific Site.

I think you should post a news story on CG then, like Diamond said.  Afterall, if you're the only gaming site refuting the other articles and you're confident (with reason) that you're correct, that has to be a good thing for CG.

Post a news article already!

The camera is VERY responsive; if it's at the wrong angle you can fix it with a button press. There is no sluggish or wildly obtuse procedure to look where you want to. It's too bad the camera didn't know which way you wanted to be looking automagically, but it's still great as-is.


That was exactly my problem with the camera in Ninja Gaiden.  Why the hell couldn't they at least have give me control over it with the right analog stick?  That was a retarded completely decision.


That was a deliberate decision. The action in the game is too fast to have to 'aim' the camera. And this game has one of the best 'smart' camera's I've ever seen.


I agree.
