Congrats, guys.  I'm really looking forward to that LOTRO contest...hopefully it's something that I don't suck at. 
9402  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stuntman: Ignition demo up on Live! on: July 23, 2007, 03:46:58 AM
I finally got the download to work and I enjoyed the demo quite a bit.  Perhaps not as much as I was hoping to, but I can see especially in the larger movie sense that it will be really cool. Depending on the timing of this release (busy or dead for other games I eant) I will probably end up picking it up or renting it.

Wow, a blurry picture of people.  How will I ever contain my excitement. 
9404  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone playing Overlord for the PC? I'm stumped, need help? on: July 22, 2007, 10:29:39 PM
I haven't played any more than the demo, but this is from the GameFAQs walkthrough:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Now then, carry the hive farther and break more mushrooms. Kill the bugs and
kill the froggies up the path.  Continue along until you get to some
geysers.  Guide your minions through to the wheel to form a bridge for the
hive to cross.  Using the guard marker here is very useful.  Break any
mushrooms along the way that hinders your blues carrying the hive.  You'll
see a brown spawning pit here and another geyser blocking your path.

So take the path right with some browns and blues.  Kill the wisps and frogs
and have your blues pull the block down in the water at the end of the road.
Head back to the brown spawn pit and take the path that is across from it,
it's kinda hidden, for some blue bugs, barrels and a giant pile of money!
You can't bring it back yet, but your can come back for it.  Now take the
path to the left of the waterfall-geyser and you'll come to a broken bridge.
The only 2 ways I can think of doing this here is to either have 1 blue take
the egg away from the wheel so the others can turn it, or just kill the
birds with your fireballs so they can turn it.  Once the bridge is completed,
head across and move the rock.

Return to the hive.  Move it along the road, clearing more mushrooms out
of the way.  Finally they'll find a waypoint to put it in.  Yay!  Now go back
and grab that giant sack of cash.

My only real problem with the game so far is that it's a real pain in the ass to control the Creeping Dark.  Running into walls, going sideways, not being able to transfer from one surface to another...just annoying in general.

Be forewarned. It now seems that people are posting spoilers in other forums under unassuming titles. EX: I went to (A paintball forum) and someone posted a new message about a new marker coming out. Inside were nothing but spoilers....such a jackass...

On another note, my book better come today...

I'm working hard to bust these scumbags as they pop up.  Sorry if anyone gets burned....

Unfortunately I looked in that one thread very early this morning before it disppeared.  People annoy me.

9410  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 20/Jul/07 on: July 20, 2007, 11:38:27 PM
I'll be playing more of The Darkness and hopefully completiing it so I can get it sent back to GameFly.

I'd like to re-read the other Harry Potter books before starting the new one, but I'm sure something would get spoiled so I'll probably have to do some of that, too.
9411  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stuntman: Ignition demo up on Live! on: July 20, 2007, 11:21:25 PM
I really want to try this one out and I just can't get it to go beyond 77% downloaded.  I hate when that happens.

Nobody thinks it is Godzilla?

I think after the last Godzilla movie (Godzilla: Final Wars) they said that they would be taking a 10 year break from the films.

I didn't think the Blair Witch Project was really all that great.  Hopefully this one is decent.

I'm certainly pumped- I re-read Book 6 last week and since Sunday I've re-read Books 2&3 and am now a quarter through Book 4 and will hopefully finish that one before getting seven.  I'd really love to re-read OotP (my favorite so far) before Deathly Hallows but I just don't think I could keep from being spoiled in the time it takes to read that monster. 

Do you understand the concept of numbers and how they have a natural order?    slywink
9414  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Darkness on: July 20, 2007, 12:10:23 AM
I just got The Darkness from my new GameFly subscription and so far I'm liking it.  I'm looking forward to getting some more Darkness powers.

Yes, you need a Live Gold account to play online, but you can download all the free demos, movies, Arcade demos, etc with a free Silver account.  No need to buy a Gold account until you've purchased a game you really want to play online.

The video I saw of this certainly makes it look amazing.  Way better than Forza 2 in my opinion.  Of course the lack of any damage is a big minus.

One thing: if this is "Prologue", does that mean the real game is coming out later or something?  Or did they decide to go the massive download direction where you buy the core game and download extra cars and levels as you want?

9422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So, What are your most anticipated games for the rest of 2007? on: July 18, 2007, 12:31:53 AM
My top picks:
Mercenaries 2
Unreal Tournament 3 (although I may just wait until next yearís 360 version)
Halo 3
Half-Life Ep 2/TF2

When I get time/money list:
Assassinís Creed
Project Gotham Racing 4 (the bikes make it less appealing to me)
Beautiful Katamari
Mario Galaxy
Smash Brothers

Mike, I wouldn't expect them to send you a brand new model.  They'll most likely just send you a refurbished one of the older style if they can't fix yours.  Then you have to deal with all that time of sending it back and waiting and talking to morons on the phone...not worth it.

Sadly, not much backlog here as I have few games for the pc since my pc is el crappo and no upgrade for years and years I suspect.  About all I have unfinished at this time is Dark Messiah, and that barely runs, even on low settings.   But I will wade through it just to see what happens but not sure how much fun it will be looking at all that blurred textures and low frame rate.

FWIW, an enhanced port of Dark Messiah is coming to the 360 this fall. 

Actually it's not slated to hit until early next year, and I'd be surprised if it gets much attention then unless it has some major enhancements. 
9429  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Forza 2 vs PGR 3 on: July 09, 2007, 02:06:41 AM
I hope you enjoy Forza 2!  There are a lot of good points to it, but just don't expect it to blow you away visually.  The full game is certainly more entertaining than the demo, but it didn't hold my interest for the long term. 
9430  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Gaming Pet Peeve] Final levels that ratchet up the difficulty on: July 09, 2007, 01:56:03 AM
Yeah, the Psychonauts Meat Circus was painful for such a wonderful game. 

I also thought that General RAAM at the end of Gears of War was by far the most difficult and infuriating thing in that game.  Several times I was close to throwing my controller. 
9431  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Monkey Ball (Wii)? on: July 09, 2007, 01:51:30 AM
I haven't actually played the Wii version of Monkey Ball, but from what I've heard, if all you're looking for is the marble rolling stuff you might be better off with Kororinpa: Marble Mania, which you can get for $40 new.  It doesn't have the minigames and such of the Monkey Ball series, though, if that's important. 
9432  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Forza 2 vs PGR 3 on: July 08, 2007, 12:22:39 PM
First off, welcome to the club and I hope you enjoy your new console!  I have both Forza 2 and Project Gotham Racing 3(as well as DiRT) and I can say that each of them does their own thing very well, it just depends on what you are looking for. 

If you want a career-oriented game similar to the Gran Tourismo series where you are buying, upgrading and customizing tons of cars from different classes and doing pretty realistic racing then Forza 2 is what you want.  Lots of depth and things to do, but the tracks wore a bit thin after a while.  Good online support with stuff like the auction house.

PGR3, like the previous PGR games, is a bit less realistic and based more around gaining kudos and racing style rather than just perfect racing lines.  You aren't going to be upgrading your cars and you won't find the more run of the mill cars like a Corolla or Focus anywhere in there like Forza 2 has, but there is a pretty good variety of high-end sports cars.  There are some decent online features also, considering it was a launch title.  This one is also available for half price these days (or cheaper used), so that might make it worth a second look. 

If you like rally and off-road racing like I do, then I don't think you can go wrong with DiRT.  The only big downside is that the multiplayer is limited to each player running a time trial stage and comparing the results (although up to 100 people can compete at once). 

There are demos available for Forza 2, DiRT, Burnout Revenge and tons of other games for free download on the Marketplace, so if you have a broadband connection I would definitely get that hooked up and try some of them out.
9433  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Insurgency mod for HL2 on: July 08, 2007, 07:47:27 AM
Yeah, I've had the same experience.  I'm not sure if it's a sniper or what but often I'm running and just get shot with seemingly one or two bullets and I'm dead without any idea who shot me from where.  That's no fun. 

I'm also not a fan of iron sights nor how they artificially slow down your aiming speed.  Just because I have the gun on my shoulder doesn't mean I can only turn around at 1/4 the speed. 

Not a lot of fun to me so far. 
9434  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: After half a year of Vista, how many are on board? on: July 08, 2007, 07:36:33 AM
Well, I voted for the "Don't own it and won't", even though eventually I'm sure I will.  I fall into the category of "Don't own it and see no reason to buy it for the forseeable future". 
9435  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 07/06/07 on: July 08, 2007, 07:33:57 AM
I played a little more DiRT.  I finished the career mode in Amateur mode and am retrying some races as Pro-Am. 

I'll probably pop in Ratatouille a bit more before I have to return it.  I was in the mood for a platformer last weekend and had just seen the movie so it seemed like a good fit.  Unfortunately is has some really infuriating jumping sequences that usually mean insta-death.  Not fun to do the same thing over and over 20 times only to fall to your death right before reaching the end.  It's not all bad, but some things could certainly be improved. 
9436  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Shoot 'em Up movie on: July 08, 2007, 12:34:36 AM
Seems like it could be decent.  I do like Paul Giamatti.

I've never found Monica Belluci all that appealing, but each to their own.

I'm not sure how you can say we don't know all that much about Halo 3 yet.  There have been numerous previews, screenshots, videos and a huge freaking multiplayer beta for people to get a real first impression of the game.  Killzone 2 has had one prerendered video that I know of.  That's the difference.
