2801  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Setting Up Tourneys. NFL2k5 (Practice Tournament Thread) on: July 23, 2004, 09:17:34 PM
Well crap, I am going out of town but I'll be back late tomorrow night.  I would love to join with the Titans and will as soon as I return.  If it isn't full.

2803  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Burnout 3: Takedown on: July 22, 2004, 01:51:12 PM
So, now that ESPN 2K5 is out it'll probably stay in my Xbox the most between now and next year's version.  There are still a ton of games I'm looking forward to this year though and Burnout 3 is the next one to come out.  

I've never enjoyed a racing game as much as I enjoyed Burnout 3 at E3, and the version wasn't near complete.  It had such a huge sense of speed, I almost felt tired after playing a few rounds because of how much I tensed up.  The crashes are spectacular.  Period.  Every aspect of the game screams fun and I cannot imagine how much fun it'll be on Xbox Live!

Here are some previews for you all to check out if you haven't already:

Game of the Year? Sure thing, why not. Yeah, it owns.

It's technically sharp, eye-openingly pretty, and shockingly fast. You've got to play this.

Whatever you do, don't let this game slip by without at least giving it a shot (that is all it will take before you're hooked).

Great impressions Lockdown, and surprise...  I pretty much agree with you on every point.

I'm loving the game.  I played 2 games last night, the first was 1 on 1 against my friend, then 2 on 2 with some other friends.

The 2 on 2 game was easily one of the best sports gaming experiences I've ever had.  My friend and I lost, even though at halftime we were up by 17 points... frown

Still, it was a great game and I forsee many late nights with this game.

Bravo Sega/VC.

You know what, you guys don't want to wait for me to come back to high speed internet on the 20th of August.  I'll drop from the league.

Good news is the Patriots are free for someone to dominate with  :twisted:


I for one would be fine with that.  I'll go with whatever the majority says though smile

The tournament starts on August 8th, so that would give us time to finish it before the league starts.  And, I think using the tournament as a preseason tournament of sorts is a good idea!

Ralph, is that ok with you?  If so, you grab another team smile

Loren, I don't know when we should start it.  I kind of think we should wait till after the tournament.  Then the tournament can kind of be a pre-season tournament of sorts.  I'm open to whatever though.

ESPN NFL 2K5 has the best graphics that I have witnessed in a sports game to date.

Question, do we still want to do the tournament as well?  I for one would like too, however, I understand if that would be too much for some people.  Let me know.

Is it possible for two members of the league to live in the same house? If need be, we can just play our head-to-head games offline and then have the loser forfeit. If so, I'll be in also. My bastard brother already took the Panters, so I guess I'll take the Vikings. If someone else wants them though (as in, they've always been your favorite team), I don't mind taking some other team (preferably the Ravens or the Falcons).


You unfortunately must have separate Live! accounts, and the games must be played online.  Their system keeps up with it, not us so it isn't at all possible.  

Sorry frown


Last year, Ralph and I encountered the same problem in the PS2 league. What we ended up doing was playing off-line in our head-to-head matchup and then told the administrator of our league who won. Apparently, he had the ability to assign forfeits, so he just gave a forfeit to the one of us who lost and a win to the one who won.


If that is possible, I would be more than happy to do it.

Now that we all know how freaking sweet the league feature in ESPN 2K5 is, I figured we should start one.

I would like the Titans of course, and Hetz wants the packers.

I think we would be mistaken if we didn't use the built in features this year.  I'm up for a league as i said, but if we don't do that we can at least do a tournament using the built in Tourney feature.  It just screams total slickness smile

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
