I was wondering why I was suddenly the only one on the forums.  That's what I get for opening it at 8 AM and leaving the tab open all day.

I went to CC yesterday but didn't know they were hiding them at the front desk.

I grabbed a flyer and price-matched it at Best Buy.

Sounds great - the few times I got to play in a BG with my hunter we got stomped by the horde.

It would be nice to actually win once in awhile.

My biggest problem with the Xbox 360 version (ok, problems...) are no accelerated clock, and no in game saves or sim to end option.  With a wife/kid playing uninterrupted football doesnt happen smile  Also no way to change the camera angles that I can see.  These probably arent a big deal to alot of folks, but for me their almost a dealbreaker.  


Weird - I can save in-game with the PC version. 

I hope they don't take that out when they upgrade the PC version to the 'next gen' engine - which probably will happen around Madden09
405  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How about some GT Madden 07 impressions! on: August 23, 2006, 03:20:54 PM
I bought the PC version last night for $27.00. (no 360 anytime in the near future for me).

It's a lot like last year's Madden, although the new field textures are beautiful and the game seems to run smoother at 1280x1024 on my 3200+/7600GT.

Superstar mode is fun but has some glaring bugs:

-Accelerated clock doesn't work when you aren't on the field.
-It seems very difficult to rack up influence/points as a defensive player.  I only played practice and one quarter of the first preseason game but I was losing points every time the offense gained yards.  Doesn't seem fair

No roster to download yet and the rosters on here are WAY off.

Yeah, the Chiefs still have Holmes and Roaf.

No way in hell I'm updating the rosters.   finger

Is it just me, or has the forum been getting hit much harder by random spam posters as of late? What does that mean? Could it be that the site has finally stepped up and become a fourth-rate gaming site? Huzza!

OO got hit by the exact same spammer.

Which means it's probably one of us doing the spamming.   :icon_eek:

See, I feel the same way about Diablo 3.

How many hundreds of RTS games have appeared since Starcraft?

How many Diablo clones?

You RTS people have a wealth of crappy games to choose from.  We Diablo fans have to chose among Dungeon Seige, Sacred and freakin Harbinger.

At least Fate threw us a bone last year.   Tongue

As for Diablo 2, I cannot go back to it since I have never played it.  Maybe if I can get it real real cheap I might do so.  Sounds like Guild Wars might not be for me.  I just didn't want to pay for the WoW service, so that is out.  Thanks for the info guys.

If you don't want to get Diablo 2, you can always download FATE for $20.

It has no mutliplayer, but it sounds like you're a solo player so that's no loss.

Played with it briefly last night.   Looks like they did a good job with the conversion, although I still struggle with making my character go up and down stairs, which I think is a big limitation of the DS engine.  Hopefully there aren't too many multi-story structures, although one of the first places you visit has at least two floors.

It certainly could be done legally. The agent in your example would setup the tap and within 72 hours some lawyer from the NSA would step in front of the FISA court, inform them of the tap and the reasons and get the retro-active warrant.

Yes, the agent that intercepts an Outlook email invite for the next day has plenty of time.  The agent that finds an ongoing call, or one immediately to happen, has no time.

No time to do what?

The warrants can be acquired up to 72 hours after the wiretap.  

The agent can tap an outgoing call without delay and still apply for a FISA warrant.

The full game runs fine on my aging 1.6 Ghz PIV with 512 MB of PC-133 RAM once I turned graphics down to "medium".   I can't see a difference in quality, but it went from bogging down in the end-game to running nice and smoothly.

EDIT - you might also turn off the in-game music and see if that helps speed things up.
427  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [News] Tom DeLay: Katrina Response Hearings Cancelled on: September 07, 2005, 09:53:02 PM
Quote from: "Autistic Angel"
Two separate excerpts from the article on CNN:


But DeLay countered that assessment later in a news conference by saying that the onus for responding to emergencies fell to local officials.

"It's the local officials trying to handle the problem. When they can't handle the problem, they go to the state, and the state does what they can to, and if they need assistance from FEMA and the federal government they ask for it and it's delivered," DeLay said.

Apparently DeLay has never perused the DHS website

In the event of a terrorist attack, natural disaster or other large-scale emergency, the Department of Homeland Security will assume primary responsibility on March 1st for ensuring that emergency response professionals are prepared for any situation. This will entail providing a coordinated, comprehensive federal response to any large-scale crisis and mounting a swift and effective recovery effort.

430  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Could San Andreas' AO rating become a good thing? on: July 31, 2005, 04:12:57 PM
Quote from: "stiffler"
The real obstacle is distribution.  Most stores won't stock games rated AO.  You could circumvent this through direct distribution (which I believe VU did with the AO version of the latest Leisure Suit Larry game) but it cuts out a sizable market.

Good point.  I was in Target today and they had a sign taped to the glass display booth saying that GTA:SA was no longer available because Target policy is to not stock AO rated games.

Which is doubly embarrassing for Target, since the sign implied they had put GTA:SA in their weekly ad.   :oops:

I don't know if many people are still playing or not (having dial-up internet this summer has REALLY kept me "out of the loop"   biggrin ) but if so I would love to play some Battlefield 2 with you fellas!  Though, I could only start to play around the middle/end of August.

I'm hoping to pick up BF2 this month so i'll be looking for servers around the third week of August as well.

What is the long-term outlook for this server?  Do you guys hope to keep it up for the next few months?

What exactly does "Vista" bring to the table?

From the few articles I've read, it seems the main differences are in the GUI.  They take advantage of 3D cards to introduce animation and transparent windows.

Last I heard they yanked WinFS from the O/S and plan to introduce it as a "Free Addition" after release.

Without WinFS, what is the motivation to upgrade?

Not entirely

Several of the military guards identified in the first batch of Abu Ghraib photos made public in the spring of 2004 have been convicted and punished for their roles in the abuse, which included intimidation with guard dogs, mock torture, public humiliation, and forced nudity, a Muslim taboo. Specialist Charles A. Graner Jr., whom military authorities identified as the ringleader, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, demoted and dishonorably discharged from the Army.

Totally agree.

For the past few years I've assumed that EA was saving the next Madden engine for the next generation of consoles.

Instead, it appears EA simply bought out the competition and will put higher-res textures on the same crappy engine we've been playing for years.   :x

I played 8 seasons of Madden 2004.  I didn't even finish the second season of 2005, because the DB AI was so pitifully bad.

Quote from: "Punisher"
I am curious about eveyone's opinion on this type of practice in general... I personally don't mind people selling cash, items, characters, whatever, from whatever game for cash. how does it hurt anything? The people who want to buy it will just be more motivated to stay playing longer (I know I did) and the people who don't want to buy it don't have to.

Next time you want to buy a blue item at the AH and the buyout is 900G - then you'll understand how it hurts the game.
439  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Gold Farmers on: March 14, 2005, 05:30:40 PM
I would hope the bannings are for selling gold for cash, rather than farming.

As long as you're not using a bot, how does farming (whether gold, or Turtle Scales, or Elemental drops, or whatever) violate the TOS?

All of which is only a problem if you have some intense, overwhelming need to be the best on the server.

I'll be perfectly happy playing my hunter on the Battlegrounds as a rank 3 or 4 or whatever PvPer.  If the Battleground gameplay is as fun as it sounds, I really won't care about my "rank".

Let the powergamers have the top ranks - doesn't concernn me, and it gives the no-life types something to work for.
