Going to put it behind a spoiler just for the language and because I think if you stare at it for too long you're brain is liable to run out your ears. It's just a seriously messed up love(?) letter.
Will also probably be my last for a few months. Am saving Deathly Hollows for when I go on vacation in September and I just know some idiot will ruin it with a picture.

Spoiler for Hiden:

aw, that's so sweet!

I was never able to see the appeal of Guildwars.  I was in the open beta way back in the day, and even had the game for a while.  It always felt like it was lacking something.

For me it was the fact that every single area that had combat in it was instanced.

Yeah, it's awesome.

I meant that's what kept me from getting into it slywink

I understand that it's just a different type of game with WC slapped on it, but I'm fine with that.  It seems like the perfect sort of XBLA party game and this with Bomberman might be good for all of us.

Generally speaking... unless it is (or rather, was) made by Papyrus, any game with the word NASCAR on is is fairly well crap.

gellar

sadly this is very true.  I'll still get it though.

IF (and that's a big if) it has all the tracks, then they should almost all be ovals with I believe 2 road courses.  Keep in mind that the cars used in NASCAR are not very manueverable on a road course slywink  It sure ain't Forza style turning.

It's on three... that's why you say, on three, ready?

It's not, after three.

Now if you're counting down FROM three, then it's Three, Two, One, Go!

So down is a four count, but up is a three count.  slywink

I'm glad they included a tougher stunt in the demo.  I thought it was going to be too easy until I tried the ice one, that took me a few tries.  Still not sure how to get 5 stars though.
9413  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stuntman: Ignition demo up on Live! on: July 12, 2007, 09:05:21 PM
Tried it with my wheel and it's definitely much much easier with the controller.

edit: kinda odd, if you use the wheel it's an in the cockpit view, if you use the controller it's a behind the car view.  didn't see any way to change this.  The wheel just isn't as responsive as the stick.  If there is a way to up the sensitivity then I haven't found it.  Shame

9420  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What robot genre needs ILM's special effects treatment next? on: July 11, 2007, 04:57:02 AM
I'm currently sharing all 80+ episodes of Robotech with my nephew and recently bought a total of 10 veritechs of various scales so obviously I'd be up for a RT adaptation.

However having said that, I'm a much bigger Btech fan having played Battledroids on up until I recently moved out of range of anyone who plays classic.  The universe in Btech is so large that they could easily do it right and still have complete storyline freedom.  They'd just need to make sure they don't change too much of the universe's backstory so that further movies wouldn't step on any toes of previous movies.
9421  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PGR4 to have..... on: July 11, 2007, 03:44:17 AM
Everytime I start to get excited about PGR4 I remember how PGR3 isn't even about winning a race, it's all about kudos and developers have said PGR4 is going to imphasize them even more.  I hate kudos, they actually try to get you to race improperly and not in a straight line.
9422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Another round of Rainbow Six on: July 05, 2007, 11:45:36 PM
I must be the only person who has no fun in the coop modes.  Ever since the first time I saw some terrorists spawn right in front of me out of thin air I haven't liked Thunt.  Then I had some spawn in a closet/small room with no entrance right behind me after I cleared it.  If they spawned at the start of the map and you had to hunt them, I'd love it.  However that's not the case and I just can't stand it. frown My only other problem with it is the fact that you have to completely shut down and restart the server to switch back tot he other game modes since it won't let you change the number of players after you start.

I do agree that the feel of the game is completely different with 4 people than it is with more, but I like the difference.  Most of why I'm as good as I am is because I played a lot of 1v1 and 2v2 to learn how to move stealthily and stalk people and that translates directly into a larger scale game.  The skills you learn in a large game don't scale down the same way the small game skills scale upwards.

I do wish I had a solution to make people play with me that don't want to though, some kind of handicap that might make them more inclined to play without taking all the fun away from myself.
9423  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Another round of Rainbow Six on: July 05, 2007, 12:37:51 PM
I'll be on again tonight.  Basically I'll be up for playing pretty much anytime since this is one of the few games that I can't get enough of.

so, how is it supposed to handle playing with the mic?

Did you notice the scrolling text across the top along with what appeared to be some kind of scrolling sound display like you would see in a sound editor?  Makes me wonder if they expect you to hit the notes.  I would think that's some hefty processing to do real time.

That's how all the current karaoke games work already.  They can read your pitch and tell you where you're at compared to where you should be.  Supposedly Rockband will also look to see if you are saying the right words too in the form on vowel vs consonant detection.
9425  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Another round of Rainbow Six on: July 04, 2007, 05:15:50 PM
You can play if we avoid the red maps.  Try to hook up with us today JD

I can't see how $200 is too much when you consider what's included.  It's a lot of scratch, so just alone I can see it being more than someone could pony up, but I can't see it being considered too expensive for what it is.  Game, Microphone, Guitar and drumset is definitely worth $200, even more so if it includes the second guitar but I highly doubt that.

Too true.  For whatever reason, even after not playing for so long I was on fire tonight.  I feel bad when things get lopsided, especially when I know that half the kills were flukes but man does it get the adrenaline going.  Hope to get you back in some games too Ceekay.  really need Jarrod, Smurff, Ceekay, Kato, all the people who played when it first came out.

Has anyone tried MP?
  I did.  I found it to be pretty shallow.  Felt like an afterthought....

MP I tried was too laggy to really give it a good try.  I can see where the coop modes might be fun, but not sure vs has much going for it.  I really do hate when achievements are mostly mp though. 

BTW, most boss battles are pretty easy if you just put a bunch of reds greens and blues on a flag and drag the flag keeping it just outside of the range of the boss.  Greens will jump to bosses, blues will rez and reds fire while you stay mostly out of damage.  Trolls are very easy this way.

Quote from: Gratch on June 29, 2007, 03:23:55 AM

Was able to put in a couple more hours tonight.  Rampaging and pillaging my way through the Shire was an absolute blast.  Sweeping my minions around the room in a path of destruction whilst chucking fireballs brings an evil smile to my face.  I'm not sure how long the novelty will last, but it's great fun so far.

A couple minor gripes:

1.  The lack of any sort of map certainly makes things confusing at times.  Many of the rooms look the same, and you are forced to pay very close attention to where you're going.

2.  Checkpoint save system.  Blech.   icon_mad

3.  Seems like the minions are sometimes unresponsive.  I'll tell them to sweep around a room, and only half of them will go, or they'll take a completely different route, or they'll just stand and look at me.  Will probably get better as I become more familiar with the controls.

A question as well.  I just got my first batch of Reds, and there's a Red "hive" it says I'm required to move before proceeding.  It requires 10 Reds to move, but there are only enough red orbs to summon 8.  I can't continue until I move the hive, but I can't move the hive until I can find more red orbs.  Am I missing something?


Those are my three gripes, as well.  The lack of a map seems like a ridiculous oversight to me.

Anytime they seem unresponsive I find that one tap on B and they sweep as normal again.  It seems to be that once a minion returns to you after grabbing something they are sometimes removed from the sweeping pool until you call back and sweep again.
