1761  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A quick STEAM question... on: May 13, 2006, 12:47:58 PM
I have HL2 on DVD and I usually just install off of there...but...I don`t plan on playing HL2, just dod:s and cs:s, and down the road some others. Is it possible to just download Steam and get only what I need not install all of the stuff off of the DVD? And would it be worth it, or would it just take forever to download stuff that way? Any ideas?

Wow, the anger is felt not only by me :!: . I used to know alot of decent EB employees. They all quit, I wonder why :roll: .

 I love the "do you have any trades" question also... :roll:

 I`ll post back after I deal with this...

The RAGE won`t let me sleep!!! :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:  Just kiddin`. I`m just drinking some beers and playing WOW :wink: . But, it seriously does piss me off.
1764  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What will you be playing this weekend? on: April 22, 2006, 06:07:12 AM
I gotta get my new warrior in WOW leveled up.

 Play some of The Warriors on XBox.

 Play some Meteos with the wife, most likely some mario kart and animal crossing also.

 Play a game called "SCREAM IN THE FACE OF SOME ASSHOLE EB EMPLOYEE!!!" :twisted:

 Or something like that...BTW the last two are related and if you want to know how, look at my thread in the off-topic section. :wink:
1765  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Wow, I hated gamespot and EB before but now I really do... on: April 22, 2006, 06:03:27 AM
I`ve read numerous threads about this before and whatnot...well...

 I really HATE the way the these dumbass stores can sell used as new. Once I got a "floor copy" of rallisport for xbox (back in the day :wink: ) and under the lights in the store it looked fine, I get home and look at it, and wow. It was all fucked up. It looked like someone put it on the ground and stepped on it and actually tried to hurt the disc. They were all like, "Oh wow, how did that happen?!?", " that never happens!" etc. etc.

 That was years ago, and since then I`ve only purchased MAYBE 2 floor copies of stuff because of this crap. And in the last 2 years or so, I haven`t bought any.

 Well, my wife wanted a copy of meteos so we could play together since I have one and she likes it. I found a EB that had two NEW copies or so they said. So we get there and there it is, all opened and whatnot. Both were like this...Well, it looked in really good shape and I left it up to my wife. Either to take this one, or we`d go looking for another. Since it`s kinda hard to come by at this point, she decided just to get this one. She knows I HATE to do this, but it is her copy. So that`s what she did. No biggie.

 We just got around to playing it earlier tonight and guess WHAT!?! Since meteos keeps stats...we found out that it was first turned on at 7PM ON CHRISTMAS NIGHT!!! The damn store wasn`t even open then, so they can`t just bullshit me into thinking someone at the store played it. Which IMHO is wrong also. So we payed for a NEW one and got a USED one!!! :evil: .

  So since the game and case etc. is really in great shape and it was only used once before, we plan on keeping this copy. Literally it was only turned on once before, I know that also because the stats tell how many times you turned on, when it was first powered on etc. But, wow are they going to have to deal with some shit from me tomarrow! I fucking can`t stand this kind of shit!

 I feel better after venting :wink: , but why Oh why can`t anyone do what they are supposed to?

 Plus anytime I open something it`s "used" in their eyes, but the other way around...NOPE! :roll: Anywho anyone else just as angered by this bullshit?
1766  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / I have had it with researching a laptop purchase! on: April 21, 2006, 09:17:45 AM
I`d look at Falcon Northwest (I`ve had a great experence with them) over Dell or Alienware.

If you decide to go with one of the manufacturers mentioned.  I recommend Falcon-NW.. I have had Alienwares as well as Falcon and Falcon blows them away imo.   I Have had it for 2.5 years now and its the best rig I ever owned.  I did not/still do not have the patience to build my own rig but I agree you can save money by doing so.  Will be buying another Falcon next year.  Look at their website and configure a rig.. You can get a very nice one for what your budgeting over at Falcon.


 I`m late to comment :oops: , but I can echo the above comments!

Wow, if you don`t know what I`m speaking of, well it`s the warriors. After all the GTA stuff got old, I was wondering if I`d buy another rockstar game anytime soon...well, I did. They did a great job on this game. If you liked the movie or not, I`d think you`d enjoy this one. Anyone else play this sucker? BTW, it just dropped from 49.99 to 29.99!

You should be fine unless you just have to have everything maxed.

My system is similar but with a 6600GT 128mb and I run it at 1024x768 on Medium detail and it looks great.


 Thanks and that`s fine by me!

Sorry to invade the console forum with this but...

 I`m running a p4 3.0, 1gig ddr, 6800gt 256mb card. I don`t plan on getting a 360 for a few months still or so  :x ! So any idea how well this will run on my PC? Or should I hold out until I grab a 360? Hmm...

Wow. I simply can`t believe that we are still playing this game so often and have no plans to quit. I thought I fully understood how to get the golden tools, but...anyone care to explain and maybe I`ll see what I`m doing wrong. Gotta love AC though!
1778  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid Prime:Hunters reviews are coming in,and impressions! on: March 26, 2006, 10:34:22 PM
It`s still enjoyable over here for me :wink: . I do agree the single player is repetative, but I`m still finding it very fun. As far as the controls go, I can see your point, but for me, the controls are great and suprisingly painless.

Like I said it`s not perfect, that`s for sure. But, what it does well, as far as I`m concerned, it does REALLY well. I can`t wait to play somemore tonight. Break out the headphones for this, and it suprisingly get pretty immersive. I`ll post some more impressions as I get further and play some more MP against bots as of now anyways.

Yeah the sound effects / music rock with headphones.  I don't think many people know just how amazingly great Animal Crossing sounds when you have headphones on.  It makes a TON of difference in quality.


 Lol, I thought I was the only person who did that... :oops: . heh.

 I got a bit further tonight and it just got alot better even. I`m really enjoying this. I`m sure some won`t, but I sure as hell am. I can`t wait to pick up a router for the wifi too Tongue !

So anyone here with a p4 3.0, 6800GT 256mb, and a gig a ddr running this puppy? I need to work out some little issues with my PC, but this might force me  to do it faster.  :wink:If so, how`s it run?
1783  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid Prime:Hunters reviews are coming in,and impressions! on: March 22, 2006, 09:10:09 AM
Ok wow! Now after that playtime I just put into that, just WOW! Now don`t get me wrong, it`s far from perfect, but it is THE BEST FPS on a handheld ever (which isn`t saying much really in itself...), it simply has to do with the great control, once you get used to it of course :wink: .

 The campaign or adventure mode as they call it better than some were making it out to sound like. I`m enjoying it quite a bit really. It`s straight forward shooting with puzzles and whatnot , but this is really the first good FPS on a handheld and overall the singler player is quite fun. Maybe people with other expectations would think otherwise, got me :? .

 The graphics look better the more I play. For a DS game, this is top notch stuff. Up against anything the look of this game is good really. The sound is also really good, same for music etc. I read someone didn`t like the music...well... :? got me there too. I was using my Bose tripod headhpones with this game and it rocked. The overall presentation is very well put together also.

 Has anyone played on wifi? I played bots quite a bit, and they seem fun enough that`s for sure.

 Like I said it`s not perfect... It is like a maze in some areas, kinda like Halo and H2. But since I`m sitting and playing this on a handheld!!! :shock: The things that are "wrong" with the game, really don`t take anything away from it for me so far. Overall I`m very impessed and I need sleep :o

 . But, the pros IMHO, FAR outweigh the cons in this case. Like I said before too, it is WAY more action-y, if you will, than Prime on the GC. But I`m liking that aspect alot so far.

 I`ll grab a router VERY, VERY soon! Tongue

1785  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid Prime:Hunters reviews are coming in,and impressions! on: March 22, 2006, 06:01:49 AM
Yes there are bots. Pretty good to so far so it seems. One,Two, and Three stars are the Bot settings. I`m outtie no to really have that beer and play some more :wink: .

Not that they haven`t rated things too high before, but anywho...


 http://ds.ign.com/articles/697/697307p1.html  

 So far a 9.0, 9.0, 8.5, 9.1...mainly smaller sites though.

 I`d agree so far, well I gotta grab a beer and put the headphones on this time!
1787  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid Prime:Hunters reviews are coming in,and impressions! on: March 22, 2006, 05:22:50 AM
So far, I`m digging it too. I played the Adventure for about an hour or so and it was fun, that`s for sure. It is ALOT more action-y than the GC Prime so far, but that`s not a bad thing. It is called Metroid Prime:Hunters, not Metroid Prime DS :wink: ! The graphics are pretty cool actually. Given the hardware, there somethings that I`ve seen that are really impressive. The smoke off of you gun :shock: . When the first boss attacks you you`re screen has this cool special effect on it etc. I played a few bots and I lost everytime... But I got 2nd once :lol: . I can`twait to get wi-fi. Lol, I have MK, AC, and now this and still no wi-fi. Must...get...router...very...soon...SO far though, very fun. ANd if you look around, the moajority of people are saying the same.

 No issues with the thumb strap here at all really.

I`m near Cleveland, Ohio and the EB I called said that some of the stores around here had it for preorders today. My PC needs work before I grab this, and I might just wait and grab it on 360 WHEN I GET ONE!!! :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted: Hope that helps!

I'm definitely in the wait-and-see camp.  I'm not that wild about multiplayer and while I loved what I played of the first Metroid Prime, the control scheme made me mental.

Apparently the single-player game in the DS version is not its strong suit so I'm potentially OUT.


 The controls in this are practically just like a fps on the PC, great stuff. I`ve heard some really good things from users who got it early about the single player too, so we`ll just have to wait and see :wink: !

I didn't know it came with a Rumble Pack!
Although... that's not really neccesary.


I don't think it comes with it...it just uses it.  Metroid Prime Pinball was the one that came with it and you can now by the rumble pack alone for $10.

 
 Yea, to my knowledge it USES it, but does not come with it. Metroid Prime Pinball came with it, and you can order them for 10 bucks. This will be the 3rd game to use it though. I can`t wait!
