I just found red orchestra to be too freaking hard to aim anything other than the sniper rifle.

DoD just dropped to 9.95 which is why I fired it back up since I bought it for my niece and nephew to play with me. 

I don't notice recoil being much worse than it was in 1.3 though, maybe I just got used to it too quickly to notice.  With the realism mod I find it much more fun, you can shoot people's guns out of their hands, slow them down, call for a medic and other little touches.

I just recently started playing this again and was wondering if anyone else plays regularly.

I'm completely and totally sold.  This looks like a return to the classic Simpsons that I grew up with, not the 'uh...when does the funny start?' last few seasons. 

I never saw when the funny started... if someone has seen it and can tell me when it does please let me know slywink

You guys are making me feel old, your first PC games had colors!

I played Enchanter from Infocom, and Wizardry along with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
9407  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nascar 08 on: July 27, 2007, 04:29:30 PM
full game is better than the demo but still I'd suggest avoiding it if you like racing at all.

Almost all my playtime goes into playing multiplayer, non-ranked on games that I already have all the achievements I care to get (which is usually 200/1000).  Amazed I made it high on the list this time, not even sure what happened.

I miss R6 and Forza nights, nerd points be damned

There was a redo of the book released after the movie which among other things includes updates involving the cast and such.  The author incorporated some of the movie changes into the book and it was quite an enjoyable read.
9411  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nascar 08 on: July 25, 2007, 08:27:11 PM
I did have the same problem with when you go straight after a turn and force feedback should turn off or lessen it yanks the wheel abruptly.  Very strange.

This one will probably be going back to gamefly the same day I get it.

good catch, and while true, I meant I'm enjoying the game slywink

I do have an issue with the matchmaking since my first 2 attempts at a capital ship game put me in when one side was 2% from destroyed and as soon as the game ends it puts you back at the main menu.  There is no game lobby which is a bit mindboggling.

9414  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nascar 08 on: July 25, 2007, 12:47:56 PM
I played the demo and I can't even put into words how disappointed I am.  Drives like crap, looks like crap.  Glad I'm only renting it and if it wasn't already on the way I'd cancel it from my queue.  If you're only going to do 12 person Nascar races, at least make sure it drives like a car.  It was moderately better with the controller over the wheel, but still damn near unplayable.  No replay feature was apparent either.

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.

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
9418  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA]this week...Wing Commander Arena on: July 23, 2007, 07:48:25 PM
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.

Carpal tunnel is much less painful with this and I can turn around much quicker with it than even the fastest optical mice I've tried.

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.
9428  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

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.
9436  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.
9437  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.
9438  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Another round of Rainbow Six on: July 05, 2007, 12:37:51 PM

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.
