I'm in the category that doesn't really know enough to be good at tuning my cars.  It's easy enough to upgrade and throw on some new sway bars or something, but tweaking the details it's hard for me to know what to do to correct my problems rather than making them worse.  

Plus, in the time that I get to play my games I want to actually play them, not spend hours going back and forth between tuning and test driving and trying to figure out if there were any noticeable changes or not.  That feels like a bit of a waste of my free time to me, although I know some people do like doing that.

Before I quit playing on the WoW RP server I had a good time pretending that my dwarf was Canadian. 

"What's this all aboot, then, eh?"

Way the fuck out for me.  HATE HATE HATE Will Smith, and watching him in another subpar adaptation that butchers the source material it's derived from (can you say I, Robot?), well...

Let me just say "Awww Hell naw!!!"

My opinion tends towards agreeing with you.  When I first heard Will Smith was chosen to star in it my anticipation dropped like a rock.

LOVED the book. Am annoyed at what is shown in the trailer, as I don't remember any set-up in the book. However, I'm also glad that the trailer doesn't appear to show us anything past the set-up. Nothing ruins a movie faster than showing us all the important beats of the story in the previews. Consider me cautiously optimistic.

I'm not sure that set up was necessary, either, and it's not welcome.  But I agree that it was good example for how to do a trailer without revealing everything.

Loved the Dirt demo and will likely buy this the week it comes out. It means I'll probably be in racing game overload for a few months since I'm already so damned addicted to Forza.. but I'll find time for both games.

Well Dirt doesn't come out this coming week, it's the one after.  We have a couple more weekends to blow playing Forza 2 before being pulled away.  And I will definitely purchase Dirt when it comes out.

That's about how I feel, too.  The lack of mid-mission saves may kill even that, though.  Of course, I will see what reviews have to say, too.

jeebus f rambo!  consoles have hard drives now!  is it that hard to put in decent save features?

Not all consoles have hard drives these days.  Like the Core.  Worst decision Microsoft made for the 360.  Not that it excuses a shitty save game system, that's just lazy and mean. 

I can't believe that Microsoft Games would publish this one with such obvious deficiencies.

My MS racing wheel does not arrive till next week so it will be Forza 2 next week for me.  I still have to pick up the game which will be my first purchase of a racing game in my life!  I really enjoyed the Dirt demo on Live.  I might try that out again this weekend.

I'm sticking to my goal of finishing up Enchanted Arms (X360) so I need to spend some time on that.  I would also like to spend a little time on Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess (Wii) and Odin Sphere (PS2).  I just started Rogue Galaxy (PS2) as well.

You should also get a free copy of Project Gotham Racing 3 with your wheel, so now you'll own not one, but TWO racing games!  PGR doesn't have the customization/upgrading stuff of Forza 2 and is more based around stylish racing, but it's not totally arcade racing either.

Zero interest in the iPhone -- I don't even like my blackberry that I have to have for work.  I just want a phone; not a camera, not an MP3 player, no extra stuff: just a phone that will have a battery life that will last for more than a day or two. 

That is my exact position on the subject.  
9209  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Lousy Tippers on: June 08, 2007, 01:42:58 PM
Yeah, tipping bartenders is a bit different than tipping a restaraunt server anyway.  Let's see, you ignore me for every female around and then finally take 10 seconds to pour me a beer...yeah, that's worth an extra dollar on top of the bullshit marked up prices.  Shove it up your ass, Francis.  

No, I don't go to bars much.  Tongue
9210  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 8/Jun/07 on: June 08, 2007, 01:27:40 PM
Mostly going to be more career mode in Forza 2 (with maybe a little multiplayer if anyone is on) and then trying out the demos for Tenchu Z and Overlord and possibly even Shadowrun.
9211  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Shadowrun on: June 08, 2007, 01:13:26 PM
With the Windows Live program you can play other PC gamers with the free Silver account, but for other things like cross-platform play, full voice communications and matchmaking you need a Gold Live account.  If you already have one for your XBox you don't have to buy another one. 

I don't think this game has anything similar to WoW, other than the fact that they are both somewhat fantasy based. 

You can read a couple pages of impressions over in this console thread
9212  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Writings on the Wall: Sony & MS are You Paying Attention!? on: June 08, 2007, 01:08:45 PM
Well, with Halo shipping in September I think their best bet may be to keep the price the same for a couple months after that release (and GTA4, etc) and then drop it at Black Friday to pick up MASSIVE DAMAGE!!  slywink
9213  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Overlords on: June 08, 2007, 01:06:11 PM
Well, as TML said in his duplicate thread, the demo is now so you can try it for yourself on PC or 360.

Man, I was really looking forward to some stealthy ninja killing and you guys are raining all over my little parade.  I will still have to check out the demo this weekend and see for myself. 
9216  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [WoW] 3-Day banned again! on: June 08, 2007, 01:34:08 AM
So what did you get banned from an RP server for, unbreakable?  Was that in a recent game or something from years ago? 

I don't know if it's fair to lump them all RP servers from different games together, either, since Blizzard probably handles things differently than SOE who handles it differently than Origin/EA, etc.

I'm not a big RP type person, and don't really get into that sort of stuff or have lots of experience with different MMO RP servers/realms.  The one thing that appealed to me about the WOW RP server was that you lost all of the out-of-game talk about the latest episode of American Idol, or who just did what to your mom and all that crap. 
9217  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: LEGO MMO accounced! on: June 08, 2007, 01:28:04 AM
I know this is the official announcement, but didn't we hear about this a few months back?  I know NetDevil had commented on it previously and was hiring for the project. 

I can see some real potential in this one.  Hopefully they also put in some of the humor that Traveller's Tales have put into the other LEGO games.  That added some good character. 
9218  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: [Vista] System stable... for now. on: June 08, 2007, 01:22:41 AM
I don't mean to be rude, but for what reason did you install Vista?  I can't honestly think of a single reason I would upgrade yet, especially given the lack of solid drivers and all of the problems I've heard about.  I guess if you like wasting system resources on a uselessly shiny interface it might be interesting for a day or two. 
9219  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: the big news was .....pac-man mazes[XBLA] on: June 08, 2007, 01:01:44 AM
The problem with that stick issue is that not many people want to pay $40+ to play $5-10 games.  At least no one I know does.
9220  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hitler's Console Gets Banned (Video) on: June 08, 2007, 12:51:32 AM
But it doesn't make any sense once he says that "All I'm left with now is my shitty N64".  He can still play all of his 360 games, just not online.  Needs a re-write.
9221  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Car porn (Forza 2) on: June 07, 2007, 02:06:31 PM
Starshifter, I predict that by next week you will be bored of Forza and wondering what the fuss was about.  I can't see spending $200 on something that you aren't even really interested in.  Hell, I really like cars and racing games and I had to convince myself just to get the game itself.  
9222  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [WoW] 3-Day banned again! on: June 07, 2007, 12:58:36 PM
I played on a WOW RP server for a while and it was actually pretty pleasant.  I eventually went back to my characters on the PVP server because that's where my friends and guild were and I wanted to play with them.

I'm not saying that RP servers can't be full of uptight asshats, but as long as you're not being an out of character goof-turd I didn't see anybody having issues with anyone else on there.

I most certainly will once I can swallow the 800 point cost. Thanks for the positive write up, BW.

Giving it a try is always free on XBLA.  slywink

I'm not a fan of episodic downloads, especially for something like this which wasn't really designed for it  Plus, multi-Gig episodic downloads on a system with a pretty limited hard drive space is not a good idea to me.  But what do I know.

9227  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Name a game you love that gets zero respect on: June 06, 2007, 11:32:33 PM
I always thought that 1nsane deserved more attention.  It was a PC offroad racing game with all sorts of super fun multiplayer modes like capture the flag, king of the hill and gate rally that I haven't seen adapted in other racing games.  It also had everything from ATVs to rally cars and trophy trucks that had real-time deformation and a random map generator.

While they usually don't get fantastic reviews, I'm an absolute sucker for the Tenchu games.   Tenchu Z is my most anticipated game of the summer.

I do stay far, far away from the handheld versions, though.

I'd have to agree.  Despite it's recurring problems, I really like the Tenchu series.  I remember that the first Tenchu came out like a month before Metal Gear Solid and everyone was all hot for MGS but Tenchu was getting no love.

Hmm, Forza 2 and DiRT aren't really much for being "complete" so maybe I will say Tenchu Z (assuming I buy it next week...which I will because I'm a sucker).

If you want to be shamed by others' artistic abilities, check out some of the threads over at the FM.net Photo and Video forum.  Particularly this ever lengthening thread.  Some of the cars in there are very amateurish, but others are amazing considering the game hasn't even been out a week. 

And talk about a way to waste away time just looking at cars...
