Wait 'til you see what's coming about two weeks after that.  It will be awesome.  My GF can't wait.   ninja

Wait, do you work there?  Can you answer my question about why the Coheed and Cambria song from the same album as Welcome Home would be a cover?  You'd figure if they have the master for one song, they would the other.

The David Bowie pack was a mix of covers and an original as well. Not sure if there is any rhyme or reason to it other than they take whatever they can get.

Moved up 3 notches to 1.95 on Tuesday night. I have to play multiple games of at least 5 kills to every death to raise it at this point and even if I do that two or three times one rough game can drop it back down. Pretty sure the reason I managed tuesday was a particularly exceptional pair of games where I only died once each. First one I finished 35/1 and the other was like 23/1. Unfortunately the death in the first game was after 24 kills.. I was so disappointed. I wanted to break my kill streak something fierce.

2.00 will be mine.

I just have to ignore you every time I look at the leaderboards.  Both your accuracy and your k/d are so damned high compared to mine.  I had 5 games of 30+ kills and <6 deaths and didn't even move .01 frown

Everytime I play WoW I stop for the same two reasons.  I look at the endgame and realize that as much fun as I am having getting there (I like pvp and especially open world pvp) that once I'm 70 it's all about who has the most time and friends to raid to get the gear.   The other reason is every major patch breaks all my UI mods and it's such a pain getting it all straightened out that I've quit 3 times over new patches.

Heh, you know what? I was looking around my game room today and I still have Chromehounds....  ninja

Hey nice night of gaming with JarrodHK and Hellspawn.  Climbed to 1.54 in KD so maybe just maybe..... I can catch Harkonis  paranoid heh who am I kidding  icon_wink

I've mentioned it before but you can definitely catch me, all you have to do is play.  You have half the kills I do so it's much quicker for you to gain than me. 

I tried playing Chromehounds and the constant network disconnections in-game combined with the inability to skip news messages remined me why I quit in the first place frown

I did manage to creep up to 1.61 k/d but I think it slipped back down before I went to bed.

For many days now I haven't seen more than 1 or 2 of you on and playing COD4 at peak time, you guys done with this now?

I am very cautiously optimistic for Frontlines....  I hope it turns out as good as they promote it to be.

After playing the demos for Frontlines on both PC and XBOX Live, I'll drastically have to re-think my opinions of those of you who buy it slywink  The controls are total crap on both platforms though the game concept isn't bad.

With live being picky that probably has something to do with overall enjoyment and performance.  We've done a lot more private matches lately.
8853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBOX Live is 100% FUBAR on: January 14, 2008, 06:47:30 PM
It's been over 20 days btw, not 2 weeks.  I'm fine with whatever they give us since the license agreement says they don't owe us anything anyway.

There are plenty of other things we can do while live is down, and plenty of them have fees we pay even when not using them as well.

Kotaku is reporting that both characters WILL NOT be on the same disc.

Darth Vader will be in the PS3 version, while Yoda is only playable in the Xbox 360 version.

Any multi-console owners torn on which version to get now?

well, I want both, and since I can't have both fuck them- I ain't buying the game twice.  I may, however, out of spite, pick one version up used at some point just to cheat them out of the money for trying to make me buy both.

Ditto, I'll buy it used.  Hated the approach they used before where I couldn't have Spawn because I didn't have an xbox

Hot Shots Golf 5 is the only PS3 one that caught my eye.

I'm looking forward to a large number of the 360 ones especially Saboteur and Guilty Gear (which I didn't even know they were doing)

edit:Oh I forgot about Left 4 Dead, REALLY looking forward to that one.  I'll be getting it for 360 and not PC because especially after COD4 I'm realizing that Live (when working) is a far better MP experience for me than PC.

I'm a big fan of the rating system.  I will take the time to avoid a player and give him a bad rating, even if it means losing the match.  I will do that if I find a player's gamertag offensive even if he is behaving himself in game.

I do the same, I report players, rate them if they yell on the mic, disconnect, etc....

But honestly, how are you a fan of the rating system?  What does it even do to weed out troublemakers?  I haven't heard or seen anything.

It does pretty much nothing.  I'm marked as 47% avoided meaning 47% of the people I play with have marked me with negative feedback.  It's almost exclusively for being 'aggressive' and 'unsporting' which translates into 'Harkonis kicked my ass and I didn't like it'.  I still have a 5 star rating even with that rep.  I also still get matched up with people I've marked as avoid.

Got to play local multiplayer for the first time today.  Man, what a absolute blast that was.  At one point, I actually had my wife, my mother, and my sister-in-law all playing Say it Ain't So.  Of the thousands of gaming moments this household has seen, that was truly one of the most amazing.  When Mrs. Gratch picked up the mic, I honestly think hell may have frozen over.

Also got to spend a couple hours in World Tour mode with my brother.  It's certainly fun, but some of the difficulty seemed way off.  We tried a random set at one of the first locations, and it threw Flirtin' With Disaster at us.  He's only played a few times, and failed pretty quickly.  Set it up again, it came up with ...And Justice for All, and we failed a second time.  I know it's a random set, but I would think the game would scale some of the difficulty of the songs, at least for the first few locations.  Other than that, we had a great time.

The random setlists are weighted for difficulty but that doesn't exclude the harder songs.  You'll find the easier songs coming up more often (which people bitch about) and you'll also get the really hard songs on occasion (which people bitch about) slywink

Basically I think they took the middle ground to ensure that all songs come up eventually but you don't get screwed over often.  Sadly people will bitch about anything so they are in a lose-lose situation.  I wish the difficulty level within difficulties was a bit more even personally but the curve to the last tier or so is kinda steep.
