9641  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saints Row to the PS3 on: February 01, 2007, 03:34:46 PM
I enjoyed Saints Row way more than I first imagined and I think it could find a good home on the PS3 provided it arrives well before GTA 4.

I think it could be a decent action game, especially with her special powers that do major destruction, but I don't think it will start any major fires with people.  My one beef is that from all the screenshots and movies I've seen it always looks to have a real washed-out color palette, which detracts from it in my opinion.

I've generally been a fan of Uwe's movies, but assuming that trailer is real (yeah it was that bad) then this would be the first Boll movie that I'm not interested in.
Definitely looking forward to the Dungeon Siege movie (which has been done for a while now) though.

Oh, I sure hope you have low expectations for your movies.  What little I've seen of Dungeon Siege looked quite bad.

Here's my top 10.  Even though I had never heard of Secular Humanism I guess it sounds like it lines up with most of my beliefs.  I have no idea how Quaker, Protestant or anything else can come above Nontheist, but whatever. 

1.  Secular Humanism (100%) 
2.  Unitarian Universalism (99%) 
3.  Liberal Quakers (87%) 
4.  Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (82%) 
5.  Nontheist (72%) 
6.  Theravada Buddhism (69%) 
7.  Neo-Pagan (66%) 
8.  Bahá'í Faith (52%) 
9.  New Age (51%) 
10.  Taoism (47%)

I think the real sign you have grown up is that you still wake up at 7:30 on a Saturday morning when you don't want to because that's when your alarm normally goes off and you just can't get back to sleep.

Radiohead is a staple for me.

I've been listening to The Black Keys lately too.  Good stuff.

I really like The Black Keys, also, but I think I am liking each new album a little less than the last.  They are going from a really raw sound to leaning towards a more refined blues that I'm not as big a fan of.

Monster Truck Madness!  Get on that!  slywink 

Seriously, I kind of enjoyed those as brainless off-road games back then.  Or the demos, at least.  Now that you have titles like MX vs ATV Unleashed that have monster trucks and so much more it just makes them seem that much more anitquated.

That looks like such a terrible, cheaply made, poorly acted movie that it just might find itself a cult audience.  But not me.
9651  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Ten New Titles Approach the Xbox Live Arcade Horizon on: January 31, 2007, 02:09:25 AM
My only problem is that of these 10 games that we are expected to be excited about, and likely won't see for months, only one of them is a new title: Battle of the Bugs.  I'm sure I will get Worms and maybe Alien Hominid if it itsn't obscenely priced, but if this is the big guns they are bringing out then it seems weak to me.  

As for Nintendo's releases every week, it is impressive that they can keep that rate up, but those games are straight emulations (first-party for the most part) and they do not have any added functionality (multiplayer, Live Awareness, etc) nor do they feature enhanced graphics or sound.

Quote from: Speaker2Animals on January 30, 2007, 01:52:41 AM

Somewhat related, no "clean installs" for the Upgrade Editions either (vista upgrades needs to go down over an existing qualifying (XP or 2000) install, not just do qualifying media check like as before).  This one is the particular bother for me, I like clean installs.

Apparently this is not true.  From this thread

This is exactly right.  If you start an upgrade from a running copy of Windows 2000 or later, you'll have a couple of options.  You'll be able to do an in-place upgrade maintaining your apps/settings, do a clean install while wiping the partition, or do a clean install to a new partition.

The way the upgrade and retail SKUs differ is if you boot setup from the DVD - in the upgrade SKU, it'll check for a qualifying version of Windows before proceeding.  In the retail version, it doesn't care.  However, if you boot setup from the DVD, you can't do an in-place upgrade (in either case).

That reminds me, now that I have a PS2 I need to go find a used copy of War of the Monsters.  I have both of the Godzilla games and enjoyed them, but I couldn't really ever get my friends to play them with me.  I need new friends.

Sphynx, Voodoo Vince, and I-Ninja were all fun.  For some reason Conker didn't compell me to finish it, but other people seem to like it.  I even played a couple of the Ty the Tasmanian Tiger ones and they were pretty good for knock-offs.

I was STILL unsuccessful in getting the Crackdown demo to download.  frown  So instead I played a whole lot of a certain MMO beta that was in Stress Test this weekend and enjoyed that. 
9660  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: LOTRO on: January 28, 2007, 04:54:06 AM
If there were an MMO coming out in the next few months, one of the features that would be pretty cool would be Accomplishments that gave you new titles (useless, but kinda neat) and unlocked traits and such depending on what you do.  It's almost like the MMO equivalent of Achievements, except with a purpose.  You know, hypothetically.  slywink
9661  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: LOTRO on: January 28, 2007, 12:08:42 AM
Well the only info I can seem to get in the normal forums is "beta testers should only post information about the game in the beta forums, the address of which has been emailed to you with your invitation".  Unfortunately that information was not in the Stress Test invite I got. 
9662  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Anybody wanna be Netflix buddies? on: January 27, 2007, 11:32:06 PM
Is there a way to check out and compare somebody elses ratings and such before befriending them?  I don't really want to add somebody and then see that we don't have the same tastes and then delete them. 
9663  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Will you check in to room "1408"? on: January 27, 2007, 11:29:18 PM
Surprisingly, that does look like it has potential. 
9664  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: LOTRO on: January 27, 2007, 11:06:09 PM
So far I am having a pretty good time with this one.  I've played a couple melee classes up to level 9 and 5.  Considering it will be another three months before this is released I am impressed with it. 

I had some more comments in there, but I don't know what details of the NDA are.  I can't find those details online and they didn't even tell me where the beta forums are so I'm wondering if it has been lifted or they just aren't applying it to Stress Test people or what.  Daehawk, do you know where I can find those details?
9665  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What will you buy from XBLA with out thinking twice on: January 27, 2007, 06:33:39 PM
Probably the Worms translation because those were awesome games.  Maybe Super Off-Road if it ever makes it there in good form.  Honestly I'd be more interested in original or new updated games than old ports, so it's hard to say for any of those "without thinking twice".  Thank goodness for mandatory demos.

15% + sales tax rates?  eek  and people complain about the 6.75% we have here.  Does that mean you guys pay less income taxes (or whatever the equivalent of those would be up there/over the pond)?

Well, they have other benefits like socialized medicine and such that are probably payed for by taxes like that.   
9668  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 26/Jan/06 on: January 27, 2007, 02:08:49 AM
I'll be giving the Lord of the Rings Online stress test a try or two, as well as trying to make some more progress in Ratchet & Clank and possibly a bit more of God of War if it doesn't keep annoying me.  I would most certainly be playing the Crackdown demo if I could ever get it to download, but it continues to defy me.  Curses!
9669  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: LOTRO on: January 26, 2007, 03:48:32 PM
I'm sure part of the night will be spent in queues or lagged in game, but I'm still excited to get a chance to see this one.  They have put out surprisingly little media (video, screenshots) or details of gameplay and I want to see the different races and characters and everything.  I noticed on their preorder site it says "Play as a monster", which would be pretty cool.  Uruk-hai ftw!  slywink
9670  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Unreal Tournament 2007 now UT3 [PC, PS3 and 360!] on: January 26, 2007, 06:01:35 AM
Yeah, I know it's been rumored for 360 for quite a while but this is finally confirmation.  What I think is silly is calling it Unreal Tournament 3 when it is the fourth in the series.  Of course, the fact that it is getting constantly delayed probably plays a part in that.  Plus, I don't know anybody who was a fan of naming them 200X and dreaded the yearly Madden-esque releases when they first started that.   

This is one that would be a no-brainer for me to get on the PC given the mouse/keyboard control scheme and mod-ability, but I'm sure my computer won't be able to play it when it finally comes out so it will probably have to be a 360 purchase.   icon_confused
9671  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Unreal Tournament 2007 now UT3 [PC, PS3 and 360!] on: January 26, 2007, 03:55:29 AM
Well, I jammed most of the details into the title, so I'll just reiterate.  Apparently Unreal Tournament 2007 is now being called Unreal Tournament 3 (did they disown 2003?).  The reason I put it in Console Games is that it has also been announced to be coming for the XBox 360 as well as the previously announced PC and PS3.  You can see a new trailer at that IGN link (and hopefully a local copy here at GT soon). 

No word on whether the 360 version will do any sort of multiplatforming or only on XBox Live.  Or maybe some sort of Windows/XBox Live and a separate Windows/PS3 open-format?

9674  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Tag - what's yours mean? on: January 25, 2007, 03:54:07 AM
Well, I guess it came from multiple things.  There's an old Roger Miller song called "Engine Engine #9" that I used to hear from my Dad's record player when I was a young'un.  Deftones also have an awesome song called "Engine #9" on their first album, and of course there are numerous children's rhymes using that line (Engine, engine number nine, coming down the railroad line...).  Then there is the Beatles' famous Revolution 9, from which I loved to quote "Number nine?  Number nine?"

Anyway, about the time of playing Half-Life online I started using that name because it was just a sort of faceless/nameless tag and I have continued to use it (although I wouldn't mind a change).

I still can't get the damn thing to download!  Every time it just sits at 1% until it eventually craps out.  I've started and restarted and cancelled and rebooted and everything else a couple dozen times and it still won't work.  Why do they hate me?  Why?

have you gone to the setup blade, checked the memory option and made sure it's not still on your HD?  It may show up as 'unknown game' or something like that.

Yeah, it shows it there with the exclamation sign instead of the game logo and calls it "unfinished game download cache" or something.  Of course it has it at 1.2 GB, but it sets that much aside as soon as you start downloading.  I've deleted that and retried a few times and still can't get beyond 1% (which it usually starts at, although a couple times it has started at 0%).  I even went and downloaded the Battles of Midway demo just to make sure something hadn't gone totally wonky.  This was a game I was seriously looking forward to and now I'm just frustrated and pissed off.  frown

Pardon me if this was posted in one of the other WoW:BC threads, but I thought it was worth noting.  Apparently Blizzard has shipped over 4 million copies of the expansion and sold 2.4 million of those in the first freaking day!  These are world-wide totals (almost 1.2 million in North America and more than 1.1 million in Europe), but still that is an incredible amount of sales for one day.  That kind of success calls for one thing... MONEY HATS!
