My only negative would be that from the demo I got the impression that if all the game offered was what I just went through then it would get boring pretty quick. Hopefully there is a compelling story to go with it. I have heard zilch about that side of it myself.


From what I've heard the story ain't much and there isn't much variety to the gameplay or level design.  Hope that's not the case because I shared your same concerns after playing the demo.  Sure is purty and things blow up great though.


All of that coupled with no multiplayer... I think I'm going to have to either rent or pass on this one.


 I`m not sure where you heard all of that from :wink: , but check this out.

What stopped it the four times before?

Not cool.  Feeding into someone's psychosis is never a good idea.  Yeah, it may be funny, or it may let you vent some frustration, but it will never help her get better.  It can only serve to maintain the status quo or to make things worse.

I would tentatively agree that you need to get out of the situation, but I'd like to know how she snapped out of it the prior times she went into these episodes.  If it was action you can take, you might consider doing her that one last favor before you ship off.


 I would also agree with this. Between you guys, me and this post :wink: , I have anxiety issues that got bad from time to time and things like that would really NOT help. I know that`s a world of difference from what she has, but never the less...
 
 I hope verything works out ok for you.

Have they ever announced the pricing?  I'm not sure what I'm willing to pay for 3-6 hours of content, but I've heard talk of $20 a pop and that's too high.

As an aside, "Jessica Cannon" is a porn star name.  Given the first game's near-legendary easter egg, I wonder if they intend to continue to push that with this series.


 I think a great 6 hours for $20.00 isn`t bad at all. Now 3 hours is another story... Alot of FPS games are about 50 bucks and they are only 10 to 15 hours long.

Unfortunatley I had a monitor that did that. It`s in the closet now. Is still works fine, but that drove me NUTS :x . So I grabbed a new one and never looked back. I`m not saying that`s the same thing, just sharing my experience with you.

Well, I do see your point but...if you don`t want it, I sure as hell do! :wink: I was trying to get a 360 before my 30th b-day, but...it ain`t gonna happen frown . I`ve been playing games that are on the cheap recently on the xbox and gcube to occupy me until I can get a 360 though. Plus the wife and I both have a DS with Animal crossing and MarioKart so that keeps us busy. That`s not to say when I see my friends on Live! with their 360s I don`t get sad  frown . I do...Oh well, soon enough I`ll have a 360...Oh and BTW, I did sell my PSP, and I really don`t regret it at all, really...I regret buying it and not saving up for a 360 though!!! :x

Well, it`s not OLD, OLD, but about a year I think...

 Mercenaries is fantastic! This game is crazy long first of all, and it`s seems to be fun the whole way through too! The graphics and sound are good enough, but the real meat here is obviously the gameplay. Holy hell is it fun! I grabbed this for $30 last week. So are the different characters that much different? Just curious. I`m so loving this so far though, great game!

1904  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Farcry Instincts, anyone? on: February 06, 2006, 06:31:06 AM
So I grabbed this for $15.00 at circuit city. Holy shit this game is great so far. I just got the feral abilities and I`m LOVING that :twisted: .  This seems ALOT better than the PC version aside from the graphics, and I loved the PC version so...

 The graphics are great on the xbox for the most part, considering the age of the hardware. Some things looks fantastic like the effect on your eyes as you come out of the water, and some things don`t look so good, like some of the textures.

 The audio is very impressive so far it seems to. Good 3d position audio with good music makes this a winner in that department too :wink: .

 For 15 bucks, wow did I make a great choice!
1905  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Farcry Instincts, anyone? on: February 04, 2006, 08:30:18 PM
I found that circuit city has it for $15 this week, so I`m grabbing it there in a few hours I think. Thanks for the offer though :wink: . I`ll let you know what I think of it soon enough.

1908  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Farcry Instincts, anyone? on: February 02, 2006, 08:48:44 AM
I was just wondering what some of you guys thought of this game. The gaming trend reviewer was obviously enjoying the game :wink: . I`ve read that it`s a buggy game, anyone here have any issues with bugs and whatnot? And anyone here play the mp on live!? Fill me in! :wink:
1909  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / My PC wierdness...Please peek in... on: February 02, 2006, 08:04:05 AM
Well, I`m going to paste this in from my email to falcon northwest. So here it goes...

  I recently had to reinstall everything from the rescue disk. Ever since then, I`ve noticed some wierd behavior with my PC. I`m running the same software as before ( as on the rescue disk ) other than audio and video driver upgrades ( and obviously my programs ).

 One time Battlefield 2 just did nothing when I went to boot it up, then the cpu usage went to 100% and stayed there or close and I eventually had to just press the reset button. The same thing happened with World of Warcaft and Steam. Then just today Call of Duty 2 locked and when I brought up task manager it said the game stopped responding. Luckily this time the operating system seems normal at this point so I at least could shut down the PC correctly. In each situation the game worked fine after I reboot the pc , and when call of duty 2 did it, I only had to reboot the game and it worked fine.

 I was instructed to reseat my video card and my hard drive cables. I have not done this yet because I was hoping this was a fluke  (or maybe a software issue) and I was hoping that stuff was not needed to be done. I`m definately going to do this if need be, but I was curious if anyone had any other thoughts about this issue. It seems odd that I really didn`t notice this before I did the reinstall and whatnot. It also seems odd that it`s only happened to games. Could this possibly be a issue with the new drivers off of nvidia`s site? Any other ideas on that?

 On a side note...Do you know about any issues with direct access  (a nvidia driver setting) and crt monitors? I`ve come across ALOT if people seeming to have issues with those things that resulted in monitor damage. Any ideas of that?

 Wow, so any ideas? I`m waiting to hear back from them today. So far they have been very helpful. Let`s hope either someone here or there has some idea. Thanks.
 
 Oh and BTW I`m running a p4 3.0ghz, 256mb 6800 gt, audigy 2 and one gb of ddr. This is on XP Home SP2.

 This thread proves something else too... This is really not directed at anyone at all, really I mean that. But, wow this post got all "crazy" too. What about this subject matter makes people go nuts ( sorry guys :wink: )?

 That`s what I didn`t get about it in the first place.

I honestly liked each season as much as the others. A incredible show.
1913  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Book Of Daniel... on: January 30, 2006, 09:26:58 AM
Well, first of all... I didn`t plan on watching this until I heard some people crying over it before the first episode aired. I watched and enjoyed the full 2 hours of its premiere. Great show. Funny, interesting, easy timeslot to keep ( one would think...). The wife and I watching 2 or 3 more hour long weeks of this very intertaining show. After last years episode they advertised for next weeks. Next week comes around, and ... they say "catch the remaining episodes on nbc.com"... Uggg.

 If you poke around the forums over there on NBC, or watch the news...you`ll see all of the crazy people that bitched about this show and got it canned. It showed a family with religion in their lives, but the catch was the family wan`t perfect. The Dad, addiction to "pills", and talks to Jesus...literally. Jesus`s part is/was written well, funny, and tasteful. The daughter got caught selling pot. The one kid is gay, and the another is asian and adopted. The house keeper smokes pot for her medical condition. The mom drinks boatloads... The whole show was very tastleful though, and very entertaining.
 
 Anyone else like this show until they pulled it? Oh and BTW you can watch all of the unaired episodes on nbc.com every friday night I believe until they are all gone. I`m suprised there hasn`t been a topic of this here yet.

 Don`t like it, don`t watch it...right? You`d think so anyway...

 First of all, I`m sorry to hear about you lose as it`s clear he`ll be missed. While I agree with you about posting that on a public msg board is a bit strange, but who cares. I`ve done it. If it makes you feel better, than what else matters. This place is not-quite-like-your-ordinary-msg-board kinda place anyways :wink: . One thing to think about too... I can say that if I live to 90 I`ll be pretty happy, not too bad at all. Sorry to hear that though.

Is there anyone here that plans on grabbing the PC version of this that has a similar system as mine? Here it is-> p4 3.0ghz, 1gb ddr, 6800gt 256mb, sb audigy 2 etc. If so, I`ll be thrilled to here how it plays on it once this game comes out. I`ll wait for the me to get a 360 if I need to...BUT, if it runs good enough on this, well then...I obviously grab it on PC :wink: .
