I've seen nothing either that says that only indie songs will be released after the GH1 stuff.  There's nothing keeping them from licensing new songs and selling them online.

Ceekay, your avatar is disturbing, and next time I see you in Indy you deserve at least one slap.  I'm playing at Gencon in the WoW Nationals, so if you're there, prepare for that slap.  Soviet Ceekay slaps you or not!

I just bought the Marvel Trading Card Game and it's pretty much the Vs system.

It's probably the second or third most popular tcg right now so that might work for you.  It's available on the PSP.

I found blaster master to be some of the most fun, yet most infuriating game I ever played.

I also thought mega man 1 was almost impossible, but I didn't find out about that cheat until well after I was done playing it.

If I got one, it would be to play with it anyway so it being open wouldn't be a factor.  It having a bright orange plug may or may not deter me.  (Plus the $200+ price tag may)

Unfortunately, it would have been impossible to make Megatron a gun in this movie.

Michael Bay (or someone) insisted the Transformers actually obey conservation of mass laws when transforming, unlike in the cartoon.

From what I read this was originally the case but apparently they still have a soundwave style size change for one of the minor characters.
9415  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Toys for new Transformers Movie on: February 03, 2007, 06:39:41 PM
The Megatron is just him in his Cybertron mode.   It's a spaceship that he was when he travelled.  Not sure what his new form is.

I believe bottled water cannot contain Chlorine by federal mandate, and that is mostly what I am concerned with filtering from the taps in the house because it is a cancer carcinogen.

The different classes definitely play completely differently.  We've run into similar problems with starters where sometimes the deck just doesn't match how that person likes to play. 

Check out http://www.wowtcgame.com/deckbuilder/  you can make a deck using all the cards, export the file and load it in a program that works like a virtual table allowing you to test your deck or actually play against others over a network or internet.  Pretty smooth.  Card art is available and all.

9420  Gaming / Analog Gaming / World of Warcraft: TCG on: December 29, 2006, 07:24:24 PM
This game is really fun.  Very similar to Magic before Magic got really convoluted and confusing.  paranoid

If you liked anything about Magic, I'd check it out.  Been having a blast playing.  Added bonus if you play WoW online, some cards have codes that you can turn in and get 'real' loot for your 'real' character.
9421  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: WoW: BC Guild/Player/Server Interest on: December 27, 2006, 05:55:26 PM
oh, and regarding the Wanderers in Wow.  Most of the active Wanderers that play WoW know nothing about GG or any of the history of the Wanderers.  It's really like there are two separate guilds in my eyes.  There's the Wanderers in every game other than WoW (who are mostly people from GG/OO/GT/QT3) then there are the WoW playing Wanderers (which includes some of the first group of Wanderers, but is mostly people who were mass recruited at the start of us playing WoW).  That mass recruiting caused a lot of problems, including the fracture into two semi-separate mindsets.

9422  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: WoW: BC Guild/Player/Server Interest on: December 27, 2006, 05:52:13 PM
I personally wouldn't mind moving servers as long as it was to a horde pvp.  I'd just pay to move my characters.  However since my sis and her kids started playing with me they don't want to start over and we can't afford to move everyone.  That's my reluctance to move.  Can't afford to move 14+ characters at this time. smile

9425  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: WoW: BC Guild/Player/Server Interest on: December 18, 2006, 06:56:07 PM
I will continue playing for the Horde on the Dalvengyr server.  Server is low enough population that you can get stuff done in the world without being ganked, and high enough that you can find action when you want to.  Since battlegrounds are now cross-server there's no issues finding a battle in there either.
9426  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: FFXI took my MMO virginity - now I wants me some WoW on: December 16, 2006, 07:10:22 PM
Paladins make excellent flag runners due to their resiliance.  Two paladins can hold off 4-5 horde at a cap point in AB with no problem.  They have amazing survival skills and a nice damage burst within a stunlock.  I'll be rolling up a BE Pally for the horde come expansion time.

I recently (as in yesterday) re-upped when my xbox 360 red lighted.  Is there anyone else on this server?  I'm 43 and looking to start levelling and pvping.  I am not a raider, I hate raids, I hope to never get caught up in raids. smile
9431  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 -- Keep it or sell it? on: December 09, 2006, 11:16:41 PM
That review of Full Metal Jacket said nothing negative about the HD-DVD version that wasn't also applied to the DVD version and the movie in general.  The reviewer disliked the look of the movie in general and just said that HD-DVD doesn't make it look any better.  That's like someone who hates the color red in general saying that a red painting looks just as bad in high def as it does in standard, which is a no brainer.
9432  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 -- Keep it or sell it? on: December 08, 2006, 03:32:38 PM
If you already have both a Wii and an Xbox 360, I can't think of a reason to have a PS3 at this point.  I'd go ahead and unload it somewhere and pick one up down the road.

If you don't get Rainbow 6 Vegas, ATB... I will be very upset. You won't like me when I'm upset.

Eddie. I love you so. Your 'R6 4 evar' message last night as I was getting my head blown off in GoW MP was very touching.

I don't know though that I'm up for another 3p shooter now. Unless someone can point me out a phat deal on the price...<cough>

R6 isn't a 3p shooter, it's a fps

Man, I just had a bad feeling about that remote from day one.

Biggest fear:  Developers going "Hey, lets see what we can do with the remote!", moreso than "Lets make a great game!"..  Lens flare, etc.



I don't see it really.  Do you say that same thing when you read about DirectX 10?  Or higher broadband speeds?  Faster CPUs?   I don't think a new controller is what prevents developers from making great games.  I think it is actually small improvements in current technology (like faster video cards, etc.) and a mentality of follow the proven games (i.e. new Madden every year, Call of Duty 84 - nursing home offensive) which stops great games. 



I do feel that way about all the improvements you've mentioned.  Everytime a new technology comes out there is a rush of games that focus so much on 'that next new thing' that they suffer in other categories.  I'm hoping they don't do it with this.

I know the shield is overpowered, because I was the one using it.  I went 1v3 twice with it when we turned off all explosives and was taking the entire other team down in a hall way with all three of them in front of me.  When used properly the shield makes you nigh invisible in close quarters.

Regarding the XM-26, I love the gun myself and would rather not ban it, but some people do think it is too easy to use in close quarters.  It IS easy, but it has a flaw if you happen to miss five times. slywink  Not many people miss five times.

The GPS is a bit different though in my opinion.  I'll unrestrict it now that we've played a bit, and we can see how the game plays with nothing banned.  I do feel a bit cheap with it though.  Combining the GPS with the XM-26 you can sneak around, know where everyone is so you get in close quarters, and with the XM-26 on full auto I've taken down a room full solo.

Edit: oh, forgot about the deathmatch bit.  I agree that Team Survival all the time is boring and have mentioned I'd like to play the other modes.  We haven't been playing deathmatch though, that's with respawns.  Retrieval is an absolute blast but requires much more from each team member or it just doesn't work very smoothly.  Attack and defend is much more lenient for beginners, but the bomb glitch means we either don't play bomb maps (which we could definitely do) or the attacker is going to win.

I had a great time with all of you last night.  We had some really good matches and it seemed pretty well balanced out.  ATB, you did great for your first time out.  You certainly picked it up a heckuva lot quicker than I did.

I got one Hammer of Dawn kill in (after destroying half the level with it) so I was satisfied.

I think I have some friends coming over for some local multiplay stuff so I'm not sure how much I'll be able to play tonight.  But perhaps I can convince them to rotate in.   icon_twisted

Don't forget you can play splitscreen and still join us for multiplayer.  Just should make sure both people that are on one tv are on same team.
