2801  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half Life 2 - PC Gamer (US) Review on: October 08, 2004, 07:34:54 PM
Sweet.  I wish I could read the review.  

If you all are interested in reading PS Gamer UK's HL2 review you can check it out here:

Just replace Page1, with Page2, Page3, etc., up to Page8.

Thanks to rookie for the pics, they can also be found on his site.

Right?

I haven't actually replaced mine, but my friend did replace his Thompson drive (IIRC Thompson are the bad ones), and he hasn't had any trouble at all.  

I'll look for a link to the site with all the drive info.

Man, I sure hope the Titan's can get a win on Monday night.  I think it would be a crazy hard task to make it to the playoff's starting off 1-4.  

McNair is starting and Chris Brown is still hot so I think they'll do it smile

15 new members in 3 hours.  

Hopefully the trend will continue.  I would hate to lose touch with many of the folks at GG.  

Those of you that have the email address of other members of GG should pass the word on imho.  Some may not know about CG at all or might not have thought about the forum's here.  

I agree with having a PC Games forum here as well.  Sounds like a good idea to me.
2806  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? on: October 08, 2004, 03:57:10 PM
Good to see you as well Geezer smile



For the record Jeff Jones is absolutely right, I didn't mean what I said above bad at all.  I really hope GG doesn't go under.  I have over 6,000 posts there and it's the best community I've ever been a part of on the net.  I wish for the best for everyone at GG and hope Rich continues to recover.  

With that said, I think see no reason why CG can't be the means for everyone at GG to keep in touch.  There are already 217 members here, many of which came from GG anyway.  

Take care.

Heya Poncho/LD sounds like you're having a blast.  

MK:Deception is out already.  

It's really good too, if you're into MK of course.  The netcode is simply flawless.  I haven't seen a drop of lag at any time.  People online seem to be a lot better than me.  I've played 10 or so games and have only won 3 of them.  

If this was Killer Instict, my all-time favorite fighting game, it would be a different story!  (Launch title on Xbox 2, rumor at least).

Take care.

I just played through the training and spent 2 hours in the first city (Boston). After two hours I got 25 points of 1,000. I'll qualify my comments by saying this is my first TH game but this could be the most frustrating gaming experience of my life!!!!

I play a lot of games so I don't put the required time into most of them to get really good. In short, I'm used to sucking, so that doesn't bother me but this game has taken it to new heights. I can't land an f'n thing!! Can't complete any challenges. Can't do anything!!! Should it be this hard?

Any suggestions?


I haven't ever played THUG, I played the heck out of TPS2 & 3 though.  Are there skate parks you can free skate in in THUG2?  If there are, I highly suggest you practice in the skate park before takling the city levels (which it seems is 99% of the game).

In THPS 2 & 3 the skate parks were my favorite and getting good at them made me good at the city boards.  

Just a suggestion.

It is on the NES.  

I honestly remember playing this game more than anything, second to Mario of course.

2814  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What kind of interface do you like/want? on: October 07, 2004, 08:24:51 PM
I don't really care as long as it's intuitive.

One thing I don't like though, is when a game requires you to create a profile regardless what type of game you choose to play.  What if I don't want to save my progress?  What If I just borrowed the game from a friend and want to play one quick game ?  

I think profile creation should be limited to season/campaign/story modes only.

No, I'll post another screen from it in a little while which will probably be the best hint I could give.

I agree, great episode.  A little slow, but great character building.  I'll be sticking around for the whole season that's for sure.

There was a PC game released in 1999 with a very similar title (1 small word difference), that made it extremely difficult for me to find a screenshot.

You are correct, it is the civil war era and the screen above is just one of the many different types of action scenes in the game.

Yeah it is Bach's "Toccata & Fugue in Dm", one of my all time favorite pieces.


So let's see... Ok. The game was created around Greek Mythology.


Humm, is it a console or a pc game?
2820  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Name That Tune on: October 07, 2004, 02:27:16 AM
Humm, I'm stumped.  I know it wasn't composed for the game, it's Beethoven or someone. slywink

The first two games that came to my mind were Castlevania or Ghouls n Ghosts.  

I have no idea  :?:

2826  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Outrun 2 [not fun] on: October 06, 2004, 03:04:39 PM
Anyone else think Outrun 2 just can't stand up at all to Burnout 3, PGR 2, or any of the other racers out today?  

I played the original, and Outrun 2 does a good job recreating that same feel.  But that feel is outdated now, making Outrun 2 about as enjoyable as getting an enema (not that I would know).

Lik Sang took the videogame community by storm this weekend by announcing a new entry in its product catalog: The SmartJoy FRAG, an adapter that allows Xbox and PlayStation 2 owners to connect a mouse and a keyboard to the console and replace the standard controller with the well known PC combo that has been the envy of many console gamers for years.

The SmartJoy FRAG is fully programmable and comes with pre-installed key configurations for the most popular first person shooters, including Halo, The Chronicles of Riddick, Counter Strike, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3, Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Unreal Championship.

Programming the adapter can be as simple as loading a built-in preset (for instance hitting F3 loads a preset for The Chronicles of Riddick).
...

Is this new option going to ruin multiplayer matches? If two players with the same skills compete, one with a controller, the other with the keyboard & mouse combo, is it a fair match? Make your voice heard in this special thread we have started in the forums.

In the following movie you can see the SmartJoy FRAG being tested in Halo.


This really could ruin multiplayer games.  I know I'm a lot better with a KB and mouse than I am with the controller.  Thoughts?

2834  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Half Life 2 Reviewed! - Updated with a score on: September 30, 2004, 09:28:31 PM
PC Gamer UK gave Half Life 2 a 96%, the highest score they have ever given a game.  The only other game that received a 96% was Half Life.

"It was all in that moment when I laughed. I couldn’t believe it was quite this good. I chuckled in muddled disbelief. My nervous fingers reloaded the level, knowing that I had to see that breathtaking sequence one more time. It was then I knew for certain: Valve had surpassed not only themselves, but everyone else too. Half-Life 2 is an astounding accomplishment. It is the definitive statement of the last five years of first-person shooters. Everything else was just a stopgap. Half-Life 2 is a near perfect sequel.”


From Half-Life2.net (Icarus is one of the site admins):

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today I was able to get a World Exclusive Interview with the man that reviewed Half-Life 2 first, Chuck Osborn from PCGamer. So let’s just get straight to it.


Icarus: What was your reaction when you found out you would be the first to review Half-Life 2?
Chuck Osborn: It was a mixture of excitement and trepidation, because of the responsibility of being the first one to review it.

Icarus: Was Half-Life 2 what you expected?
Chuck Osborn: More

Icarus: Was it worth the wait?
Chuck Osborn: Absolutely

Icarus: How long is the review?
Chuck Osborn: Nine pages, plus we have a four page story telling you what you need to know about running Half-Life 2 on your system.

Icarus: Did it seem dated?
Chuck Osborn: Not at all.

Icarus: Are there any spoilers in the review?
Chuck Osborn: There are some mild spoilers, because you can’t review it without giving away something. I say very clearly when to stop reading if you don’t want to know anything. If you read the entire review, there are a lot of surprises I don’t talk about, because I want you to be surprised. This is not a spoiler review.

Icarus: Does it have multiplayer, if so what are they?
Chuck Osborn: Counter-Strike Source is the multiplayer.

Icarus: Only CS:S, no Deathmatch?
Chuck Osborn: Only CS:S

Icarus: Has it (CS:S) changed any from Beta?
Chuck Osborn: It’s what they say it’s going to be, but with a few surprises

Icarus: Who did you get to play it with?
Chuck Osborn: Valve as well as playing in within our own offices

Icarus: Did you get to play HL Source?
Chuck Osborn: Yes.

Icarus: Can you tell me anything about HL:Source?
Chuck Osborn: Nope

Icarus: Is it (HL:S) included in the review?
Chuck Osborn: Yes, it's discussed in a sidebar along with a few screenshots.

Icarus: Anything you want to say the users before I go?
Chuck Osborn: I'm just glad I don't have to keep my playing Half-Life 2 a secret anymore! It was killing me. Trust me...you won't be disappointed.



I absolutely can't wait.

Yes someone could easily run for 10 yards a carry even with Bledsoe.  Watch what the defenders do when a QB runs out of a pass play, they do not react at all.  So it really doesnt matter how fast the QB is.


If the person on D is competent that is completely not the case.

About the QB runs: I voted that the D should step up and stop them because I run with McNabb from time to time and I don't want to be pegged as a cheater. Not that I'll win any games but he is one of my best weapons.


Awesome Devil.  Maybe we can win this vote and put an end to this.

I think an honor system for any exploits is the way to go.  If someone has X number of complaints on them, then the admin should step in and do something.  

I would agree that going 5 wide, and running right when the ball is snapped is unrealistic, cheap & shouldn't be done.

Anyway, you can read the rest of my thoughts on that board.

No, Eco, you didn't abuse it.  Abusing it involves, like you said, 5 out, immediately running.  Honestly, going into the game, I EXPECTED IT since that's the way the Titans play.  Fact is, when I thought it was coming, I would try to negate it manually.  You know, use a linemen or blitz a corner - what teams do in the NFL.  I had no problems with the way you used the qb run.


I appreciate your honesty.  Hopefully, the poll for our league won't outlaw running all together.
