Far Cry.  Two words.  No 's'.

And the really cool poster who goes by Farscry.

But that's not the name of a game now, is it?

10323  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Would you rather battle... on: August 04, 2006, 01:57:04 AM
Why give an option you don't want people to choose?  

If you knock out Ellen Pompeo, I would become an immortal werewolf because you're basically restricted to a short, predictable time table of when you will go nuts.  As a vampire you are totally restricted by what you can't do (sunlight, garlic, holy water, etc) or having to constantly have a supply of blood at your disposal.

I personally really enjoyed The Hulk, both the movie and the game.

I agree with that.
10325  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is there any interest in Dead Rising? on: August 04, 2006, 01:27:57 AM
Having to complete the game multiple times just to open up a non-timed is shitty.  My first couple hours playing a game like this would be just wandering around exploring and experimenting before I started on the story missions.
10326  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dudes on: August 03, 2006, 03:32:05 AM
So which Dirt are you?  DIRT: Colin McRae Off-Road, or D.I.R.T.?   :wink:
10327  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / DVD Sale on: August 03, 2006, 03:06:07 AM
And it's now cheaper to just buy the damn movie than rent it.  

(in some cases, at least)
10328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Computer Gaming World no longer?? on: August 03, 2006, 03:02:47 AM
I think they really missed the boat in not using "Multimedia" in the title...  :wink:

What a load of crap.  But as it has been mentioned, at least it's free crap.
10329  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many consoles (same kind) have you been through? on: August 03, 2006, 02:52:29 AM
I had a couple PlayStations.  The first one was second-hand so I wasn't too surprised when it started to crap out and only work on it's side or after some violent intervention.  The second one ended up getting stolen so after that I just shared with a roommate.  

Every other console my family or I have owned (from 2600 up to 360) hasn't had to be replaced.  However, I don't have a notorious PS2 and my XBox wasn't from the first run.
10330  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (7/31) on: July 31, 2006, 02:59:49 PM
I wanted to pick up FlatOut 2, but I'm not sure if I'll get it on the PC or wait to see if it gets compatibility love for the 360.  Not that I don't have plenty of racing left to do in Gotham, but this is a very different style.    smile
10331  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / FREE WINRAR - Today only on: July 30, 2006, 06:04:18 PM
Out of curiosity, do you guys actually use this anymore?  I can't remember the last time I had a *.rar to unpack but it was quite a while ago (and yes, I realize it works on other file formats also but I don't use those either).
10332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS3] Entitlements? WTF? on: July 30, 2006, 05:51:17 PM
Quote from: "Fellow"
Yeah, I really couldn't give a flying hoot myself, either. Which begs to question why I'm reading the thread. Or even typing this reply here.

In fact, why am I here to begin with?

Who... who am I?

Hehe, this is off topic, but I just noticed that you hit your 666th post while being located in "Hell, or something like it".  Seems fitting.   smile
10333  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / "Walk Away" by Kelly Clarkson is CATCHY and AWESOM on: July 29, 2006, 09:20:29 PM
That is some pretty shitty standard pop music.  I can't believe she pretends to have a band in that video.
10334  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What the...Ninety-Nine Nights demo up in the marketplace! on: July 29, 2006, 06:06:49 PM
Quote from: "Roguetad"
Ugh...Kingdom Under Fire part 3 for the 360.  I liked the first KUF for the xbox, but the formula and gameplay quickly got old for me.  I thought this was going to be an action rpg, not another KUF.  I'm glad it's getting a positive reception, but I think I'm in the minority of people that don't like the demo.

Well, on these boards I think you would be considered in the majority.   :wink:
10335  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What the...Ninety-Nine Nights demo up in the marketplace! on: July 29, 2006, 04:17:58 AM
I played this demo for about a half hour and I was already sick of smacking the same buttons for auto-combos on endless numbers of the same enemy.  Reminds me very much of one of the Dynasty Warriors games I played before, and that's not really a good thing.
10336  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hot Fuzz - Coming in 2007 on: July 29, 2006, 02:08:18 AM
I really enjoyed Shaun of the Dead and I hope this has something going for it that we haven't already seen in Reno 911 and the like.  The scenes they talked about on that page didn't strike me as being very clever or funny, but a lot of that depends on the delivery.
10337  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How much spam do you get in your mail box? on: July 29, 2006, 02:05:07 AM
On my "real" Comcast email account (which I never use for anything besides personal email) I don't get any spam.  On my Hotmail account, which I use for websites and all that jazz, I used to get maybe 5 in the junk mail folder every day with one or two maybe not.  Lately I've been getting about tripple that in both.  

Definitely make sure to run Adaware and Spybot to clear out any internet files which can be mined for your addresses.
10338  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WEEEEEEKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEND PLAYLIST! 28/Jul/06 on: July 29, 2006, 01:51:37 AM
Still getting caught up with my new 360:

Fight Night 3 demo (I have a real love/hate view on this one)
all the other demos on Live and Live Arcade   smile
10339  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Micromachines v4 impressions on: July 28, 2006, 04:54:08 AM
I tried out the PC demo for a little bit and it was enough to make me say bleah.
10340  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Call of Juarez shots and info -- old west shooter on: July 28, 2006, 01:06:38 AM
Well, there is now an English language demo available for this fella.  You can find it at all the usual places, like FileFront, 3D Gamers, WorthPlaying, etc.  

I haven't tried it out yet, but I'm in the process of downloading it.
10341  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fight Night 3 question/help on: July 27, 2006, 04:20:42 AM
Pardon me for not dredging up an old thread on this, but I did a seach for "Fight Night 3 360" in the Console Forums and got 37 pages of responses and I didn't feel like manually searching through half of the dang forum.  

So I downloaded the Fight Night 3 demo on my 360 and I really want to like this game but I'm having a bit of trouble.  Part of the problem is that the demo doesn't instruct you how to play at all other than seeing "Total Punch Control" is mapped to the right stick.  So the first question is: does the full game have any tutorials or training to help you get the hang of the different punches and techniques?

Secondly, it seems as if the punches my fighter (Bernard Hopkins) throws are almost always slow and have little energy behind them.  I would think this is just the way the game is, but the few punches my opponent (Roy Jones Jr) throws always seem to come faster and pack more beef.  So what am I missing here?  How do I get my punches to be faster and continue that speed into the follow-through?
10342  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / James Bond: Casino Royale on: July 27, 2006, 02:43:02 AM
I thought the last couple Bond films were closer to  crap than not, but I still have hope for this one.  

For those to lazy to search it out themselves, here's the site with the trailer and one with a couple podcasts.
10343  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Dress.....NSFW on: July 27, 2006, 02:17:29 AM
Is Heidi recreating the infamous Phoebe Cates scene from Fast Times?
10344  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Next Gen Star Wars Trailer on: July 27, 2006, 02:00:35 AM
IGN has an interview with a chap from LucasArts about this pre-vis video.
10345  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need some creative input! on: July 27, 2006, 01:38:28 AM
I think that first you should decide (discover) what the hell you are making a blog for and why anybody would read it.  What sort of topics is it going to cover and how is that going to relate to your company in any way?
10346  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DOA 4 Demo on XBL on: July 27, 2006, 01:05:12 AM
Well I downloaded it and played it a bit and I'd have to agree that it smelled a bit of poo.  I assumed it was just because I am not a big fighter fan (the Soul Calibur series is about the only modern fighters I found worthy of purchase) but it's good to hear that other people have the same opinion.
10347  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Outfit: Collateral Damage Pack = Free on: July 27, 2006, 12:56:37 AM
I think I would be a little annoyed if I had previously payed for the content, but at least this is getting it out to more of the players and perhaps enticing some new ones.  

I downloaded the demo but it was only multiplayer so I didn't bother to try it out.  I'm not a huge fan of random multiplayer, and I'd prefer it if my first experience with a game wasn't getting fragged and swore at by a bunch of kids that have been playing the demo for months.
10348  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sam & Max Renders! on: July 27, 2006, 12:48:22 AM
I am definitely looking forward to this one!  I picked up a newsstand copy of that CGW as soon as I saw Sam & Max on the cover.  I sure hope Telltale is able to make this monthly episodic thing work and deliver the game we all want (and need!).
10349  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Titan Quest patch 1.11 on: July 27, 2006, 12:43:23 AM
Iron Lore has released the new Titan Quest patch.  It looks to fix quite a few things and you can get it and aread all about it over at that Vault link.  

I grabbed it via the in-game Update and that was a speedy and painless download.

EDIT: Don't forget to change back your Game.dll if you swapped it out for a mod (like the potion stacker).

And I ask....why?  Talk about a day late and a dollar short...

While it is certainly a bit late, there are those of us who just picked up a 360 or will be before the holidays, so better late than never!   smile

I have never liked his books, but this series intrigues me.  I may have to at least try the first and see if it grabs.  Thanks for reminding me about it.

I would at least give it two books to get into the series.  I was not very impressed with the first one but gave the second one a shot because my friends suggested the series so much and it definitely improved.
10352  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So who here is running the 360 with a VGA cable? on: July 26, 2006, 02:17:36 AM
I'm using a VGA cable with an older 21" 4:3 CRT monitor and it works great for me so far.

Thin_J is right about Project Gotham Racing 3 squishing the graphics at 1280x1024 so to get it to display right you have to go into the XBox Dashboard and set the resolution to 1024x768 to get it to display right.  

I haven't had any backwards compatibility problems, but I haven't tried on many games at all yet.  A list of known issues can be found here.
10353  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Little Miss Sunshine on: July 25, 2006, 02:05:00 AM
Anyone else interested in this movie?  I saw [url]the trailer[/url] a while ago (I think the Teaser is actually better) and I just noticed that it's coming out this weekend.  I guess I'm a fan of dysfunctional comedy/drama and this one has some good talent in it.
10354  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (7/24) on: July 25, 2006, 01:27:12 AM
Nothing for me this week.  I'm still breaking in my 360 and have tons of play left in PGR3 and Kameo (as well as all the demos and stuff to catch up on!).

I can't say that I agree about the poster kicking ass.

For us old-schoolers who used to watch Kirk and Spock do their thing (although for me it was on reruns - I ain't that old biggrin ), we're anticipating this movie.

What does a close-up of a spandex shirt have with any of that?

10357  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / xbox 360 classics i know its still a bit early on: July 24, 2006, 02:17:03 AM
There are specifics that must be satisfied before a title became a Platinum Hits, and one of those was that it had been out for at least 9 months.  I'm assuming they will roll out the 360 Platinum Hits (or whatever they'll call them) after they have enough titles that have been out that long and sold enough copies to offer a broad enough range for the new line.  Just in time for the holiday season and to go against PS3 and Wii.  

You can pick up Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo on sale for $20 this week at Circuit City (or at Sears on their clearance sale), and that's probably as good as it gets for now.
10358  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mega Man Powered Up is cute like bunny rabbits on: July 23, 2006, 11:44:38 PM
I'd love to see something like this make it's way to the XBox Live Arcade.  That would freaking rule!  (mostly because I don't own a PSP and can't see myself buying one anytime soon)
10359  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / First Picture of Venom *potential spoiler* on: July 23, 2006, 05:36:55 PM
The general thoughts I've seen are that Spiderman 3 (judging from the trailer that has been released) will introduce the alien symbiote that merges with Spidey's suit, merely introducing the set-up for Venom, who will be the villian in the 4th film.  This makes sense since that trailer shows at least two other villians which will likely be the main focus of this film.

I was finally able to install the game by first booting into Windows safe mode and then running the install program.

Well of course!  That's entirely logical.   :wink:   Glad to hear you got it working, though!
