9361  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Marvel MMO is DEAD on: February 12, 2008, 03:09:41 AM

Another thought - isn't this the 3rd or 4th MMO that Microsoft said they'd publish and then backed out of?

I know that True Fantasy Online was their first, and then there was Vanguard, but I thought there was more between them...

They also cancelled Mythica in favor of Vanguard before they passed that one on.  I believe changes in management are largely believed to be behind the changes in priorities away from MMOs.

As the title says (if you even get in this far), I'm also seeing DB errors when clicking on some threads.

Yeah, the resolution isn't the best (to be frank, I have no idea what it puts out), but it's more than good enough to watch movies of any type.

I don't know why, but the resolution is a lot worse now for me than it was a few weeks ago.  The first time I tried it, it was near HD quality.  Last night, it was near youtube quality.  I did some tests on my internet connection and it seemed fine, so I don't get what's up. 

Did you try it with the same movie?  There could be a good chance that some movies were transferred from a worse source or encoded at a lower quality.

Ready 2 Rumble, anyone?  I had to laugh to myself reading the preview for this one how they were saying that they were trying to be so original and avoid cliches while touting characters like a slimy latin lothario and a burly, bald military guy.  Oooh, brilliant!  No wonder they can only come up with 12 of them.
9366  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 1UP going from 1-10 scale to A-F scale on: February 10, 2008, 07:53:36 AM
If you think an A+ is a range from 88-100, what the hell is an A or an A-?  When/where I went to school the whole range of A's was 90-100 or 92-100, with A+ being reserved for getting a 100% on something. 
9367  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else excited for Boom Blox? on: February 09, 2008, 04:33:20 PM
I'm always a fan of physics puzzle type games, so this is a no brainer.  The fact that it is something I can also share with my niece and nephew is icing on the cake.

On a similar (but totally unrelated) topic, I really enjoyed Blast Miner by the same guy(s) that did Bridge Builder, Gish, etc.  I'd love to see some games like that make it to XBLA.
9368  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Do I *really* need a RROD to get this replaced? on: February 09, 2008, 04:28:20 PM
Yeah, I think once you are past the initial 1-year warranty the service site just craps out on you.  At least that's what it did for me, even when I had the RROD covered under the 3-year warranty.

Well the good thing about the Indy game is that there obviously won't be any force pushes throwing guys around like that.  Just some sweet punches to the face.

I think I'll definitely buy Simple Man, mostly because Deftones did a cover of it on their b-sides album and now I've grown to really like the song.

I had this amusing moment when I went by a Moe's Mexican Grill on Friday (I like them but I think Chipotle's ingredients and meats are better quality). One of the women working behind the counter kept looking up at me like she recognized me. It was only when I left that I realized, "Hey, she used to work at Chipotle!"  saywhat My dining world here is truly too small...
That exact thing happened to me, but at QDoba!

Denver and Boulder have an excellent fake Mexican place called Illegal Pete's, and they make potato burritos that are incredible. Also, unlike Chipotle and the like, they mix up the burritos before they wrap them, making them extra delicious. I miss the piss out of that place.

Hmmm, it looks like I'll be going to Boulder for burritos this weekend.  I don't know too many places to eat around here yet and that sounds good.

To tell you honestly, any contest which requires me to write a story is going to get totally ignored.  I played WoW for a couple years and don't care to write anything about it and I'm guessing a lot of other people feel the same way.

publishers greenlight massive new PC game projects for John Romero and Derek Smart.

imagine a team up of those two.  the game would make you their bitch but you'd be too stupid to understand it.

This could be the next big reality TV show hit. Get a bunch of infamous developers and put them together to make a game. G4 could air it.  icon_lol

G4 would probably be off the air before that game ever got finished.  slywink

I finally got to try this demo out last night and have to agree that it's not very good.  Not as terrible as some of you are making it seem, but certainly not something I want to buy.  What a bummer. 
9383  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Chime in on Fable Lost Chapters please on: January 27, 2008, 06:58:03 PM
It's the original game with some added content like some new side quests/areas and stuff.  I enjoyed it and it's probably a little more complete game than the original release but don't expect something completely different.

9385  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Breaking Bad on: January 26, 2008, 05:37:53 PM
I thought it was pretty good, but I'm interested to see where it goes.  It alsmost seems like they were aiming for Showtime or something with the nudity (blurred) and swearing (blanked).  Like a slightly darker version of Weeds, I guess, although it's harder to sympathize/identify with a meth cook. 

I caught the first part of it last night before being interrupted and then found out it was also available on Comcast on-demand (in HD even) so I started that up.  Maybe I just wasn't paying as much attention the first time, but it seemed there were little parts in that version that I didn't see when just watching it on AMC.  Like his wife giving him a hand-job in bed after the birthday party.

Too bad I already bought one of those on clearance at Target a few months ago so I already have the worthless extra headset and Joust. 

I see you can also get a wired 360 controller for $18.  Not bad if you just want an extra for your PC or something.

Speaking of cookies, our HR lady was actually baking chocolate-chip cookies in the office yesterday and it made the whole building smell good all day.  It was sooo hard to pass those up, but I did. 

My hard part isn't the week, where I'm at work for 10+ hours a day and eating normally, but on the weekends I tend to just eat crap all day long if I'm at home and that tanks me hard.  Pizza, chips, chocolate, whatever.  When I'm bored I easily fall victim to cravings.  I think I need to work 7 days a week or something.

Thanks for setting that up for us, by the way.  I wish more participants used it: It's nice to see everyone at one glance.

I told myself I'd finally get an exercise in tonight...but I'm itching to dig into the new Advance Wars.  I really need a stationary bike or something so I can work up a sweat while gaming.  If someone was smart they'd design a gaming system that goes into standby mode if you stop pedalling fast enough.

They do have those racing games that are hooked up to a bike where basically the faster you pedal the faster you go.

IMDB has it listed as in post-production, so hopefully if that is anything left is was minor voice-over recording or something.

I'm curious why GamingTrend felt that this game deserved to be given a 3-month window for patches and updates before weighing in with a review.  That seems like a really shady thing to do since you don't give other games the same leniency.

White Wireless Controller (plug-n-play kit included)
do you mean it comes with the USB kit for the PC? If so I'm definitely interested in it, to the extent that I'll call dibbs on it now.

The wireless controllers can not use the play-n-charge USB connector to be used on a PC.  You either need a fully wired controller or the MS wireless adapter (basically a USB dongle that acts as the wireless receiver) to use a wireless controller.

Having said that, if kronovan is no longer interested in the white controller w/ charge kit I'll put in my dibs for it.  I still only have one controller and that's a bit of a drag.

I want to try and love the new Burnout, but with all the new changes it will have to be a rental or wait for a big price drop I think.  

I did just order Zack and Wiki from Amazon since it dropped to $32 there. 
9398  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Looking for a Good B-Rate SciFi Movie like Earth Defence Force. on: January 20, 2008, 01:46:13 AM
You absolutely have to get Them! (1954) if you're looking for something like Earth Defense Force.  It was one of the first giant monster movies (if not the first) and it has giant ants, flamethrowers and lots of pure awesome.  It's easy to see a direct influence for EDF once you've seen this.  It's better than Aliens and Citizen Kane put in a blender. 

If you want a more recent movie like Godzilla, I'd go with Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. over Final Wars.  I thought it was a better movie.
