9001  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Should GamingTrend Start Banning Anyone Who Crossposts on Octopus Overlords? on: January 19, 2008, 08:45:55 PM

Some people might argue that forcibly separating the two communities would promote greater diversity, but anyone who doesn't feel that GamingTrend and Octopus Overlords already have distinct personalities probably hasn't spent enough time at each site.

Not that I actually support censorship like this (which doesn't prevent me from joking about it), but isn't discouraging the cross posting, rather than "forcing" a diversity, instead acknowledging the diversity, and rejecting what OO represents?

Actually, the only thing I dislike is having to read "this has been cross posted at OO".  Does anyone bother mentioning when they cross post here and at Bovine Conspiracy, or QT3, or Penny-Arcade, or whatever?  I've just never seen the reason for it, since the sites are not affiliated.

I've seen people mention other sites many times when posting, they'll say 'here's the post I made over at 'x' site'

My reaction is...whatever....I don't really have any interest in this game but I won't complain...If it is crap....atleast it was free

Agreed. Didn't like the demo at all.

Of course, I won't have access to my 360 during those 3 days they're offering it, so I won't be getting this for free anyway.

You won't have access due to your 360 dying so you can't get your free game due to live dying?   icon_eek

Do I have to play with Harkonis, or is he banned?

Because he steals your kills or you dont like him? Both are valid reasons.

I ain't the kill stealer  you need to aim that at Kato who has the crown by a great deal.

Anyone having problems not hearing all the tracks when playing over XBL?  It happened last night with Fyedaddy & Grue, and in a couple matches again tonight. I was on guitar/bass, and Fyedaddy was on the other.  I could hear my guitar and the drums fine, but couldn't hear his track at all.   Thought it was maybe a problem with my headset, but it happened again tonight in two different groups when I was using the mic to do the vocal track.  Strange...

It seems to emphasize the track you are playing and this sometimes drowns out the other players tracks when playing remotely.  I've noticed it's especially bad if you're doing much better than the other person.  Similar to how GH 2 would lean the volume towards the winner.

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.

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
