Wow, some of you have some outrageous stories. You really should make an effort to talk to the district manager of the store you are shopping at if that stuff is happening. It would do a whole hell of a lot more than complaining in a message forum.

 OH, I have nod. Not to sound like a dick, but...After putting up with so much shit from this one GM at a EB around here. Well, I called and complained and I think it was his 3rd strike icon_lol, because shorty after that he was fired. Obviously he did more than piss me off. I almost got a gamestop manager fired too. With him I should have. What a dick he was/is!

Gears of War Collector's Edition...$70

Playing the game 5 days before Wal Mart can even sell it...priceless!

A friend of mine got to go to an official preview Saturday night in Chapel Hill, NC.  Got to play the game for about 10 minutes and said that it was everything that we've been told it was.  He said it had the coolest death animations he had ever seen.

 I`ve heard only the same. Which is odd. Usually someone says something bad about big games coming out.

Would like to hit Q1 for that.  As far as the Dalmatian game, I'll probably get my hands on it soon.  "Nosferatu....sit down."  Yea...The Fear Rats are doing well.  When my mom moved in with us she brought her pair, so now it's four of them in their huge condo.  smile  They seem happy.

 Off topic but...I know these are local, but still...have you ever had Great Lakes Brewing Co. Nosferatu? Great frickin` beer. Only seasonally avail. and it`s 9 and some change for FOUR of `em, but wow! Same for their Christmas Ale, which is a 6 pack for about 9 or 10, also only seasonal. That`s it, I had to chime in.

 Sorry about that. But sheesh. I quit for 2 freakin` years and then I start again. All summer I battled with it. You know, the "Hey, it`s nice outside. That beer would go good with a cigarette!" Here`s what I say to you government and tobacco companies finger finger finger!!!

 They know it`s horrid for people, yet they still make money off it and pretend to care. I get sick when I see thr bullshit ads phillip morris puts up that look so loving and caring, but obviously that`s not the case...Anyway, that could be alot more bitching from me than you guys want to hear so...

 Anywho, I do have a point regardless of what this looks like nod. Who here has battled with smoking for AGES? Any ideas on making this quit actually stick? I`m doing pretty good so far, 2 days, almost and zero smokes. But I did good for 2 years and look what I did disgust. Don`t get me wrong I love them cigarettes nod. Unfortunately that`s a bad thing. A very bad thing. I did try some websites last time and it did help. If I remember correctly, Paulbot pointed me to some of them. You still around here?

Quote from: Calvin on October 26, 2006, 08:11:03 PM

I wish you had had more apt descriptors for the ratings. I gave this game a 5 for: 1. blatant lies and misleading marketing regarding multiplayer formats. 2. Lag, connection, and matchmaking issues online. 3. Badly designed and developed AI and stealth system that has super sensitive and super aware guard AI that triggers alarms over a fart, secondary objectives that must be completed to get all the gadgets and thus making the player suffer through the bad AI, and UbiSoft Shanghai.

 Wow, Calvin it`s always you I post after...and to say the least...we disagree nod.

 I agree with all the positive stuff said here, there`s not reason to retype it. And as far as negative stuff. The MP could have a better system in place, but it`s not horrid IMHO. GRAW was freaking WAY worse. Not much to conplain about from me I guess with this one.  icon_biggrin  So it`s a solid 9 from me!
1980  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 N00bz Journal- Updated 22/Oct/06 on: October 26, 2006, 09:26:24 PM
 Ok, to clear some things up. Tongue

 When you turn off the 360 via the wireless controller  while charging it using the plug and play charge kit...if the controller is near done charging it just goes off. Even if the light was still just red right before you turned the stuff off. Other than that the system will continue to stay on until the charging is done. Well, the system isn`t fully on, but the power supply and fan and what else is needed for charging remains on.

 This was the case on both of my systems and both controllers. nod

 And since my system isn`t loud really at all. The noise never bugs me, even during charging while watching TV, and I sit only afew feet from the 360.

1983  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Console Noise Levels on: October 26, 2006, 10:11:01 AM
 Haven`t checked the "born" date icon_lol, but I`ve had mine for 2 or so months. I got one, and it was acting funny so I swapped it out before too much time ran out on my EB warranty so I didn`t have to play 40 bucks to do so and this one is good to go. Oh, you asked a question...sorry Tongue Both of these systems have made "minimal" noise while just at the dashboard, and then just the swirling noise when a disk is spinning. Definately what I would think as "normal". I`ve had loud PCs, original Xboxs etc before. And even compared to my pretty quiet PC, the 360 is pretty quiet.
1984  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: SC:DA is good fun so far! on: October 26, 2006, 09:59:18 AM
 After some more time, and an update for the MP lag (I think), I`m really happy with this one. It definately deserves to be in the Spinter Cell series. For me, I played CT in 480p on my Xbox. This one is being played in 720p on my 360 and there is definately a difference. It`s not like the visual leap from most xbox games to 360 games ,but CT was a looker on the original Xbox, that`s for sure. Not huge, but it`s there, and I like it! And some stuff just could NOT be done on the original Xbox at all...Weather effects are great, same for water, steam etc. I`m playing it before and after Oblivion, PGR3, Condemned etc. and it doesn`t look bad, at all.

 And as far as gameplay goes, did it reinvent the wheel? No. Did it refine it? Yep. I`m loving the stuff they added to this one. I don`t really understand the hate for PT, despite the checkpoints being FAR apart and the stuff in between being VERY hard at some points. But, in CT and DA, you can save whereever you want. Problem solved in my book.

 Thief:DS (same  as ^)CDs
 F.E.A.R. ( instructions and paper sleeves the disks came in Roll Eyes )CDs
 BF2 ( Instructions and case)DVD

 I have a Original XBox HD cable that I`ll let go easily also. I have zero need for it anymore.

 I didn`t notice ALL the freaking good games come out at the same time on the 360 soon. COD3, GoW, RB6 Vegas...I`m probably missing something...I`m sure. I think those titles I mentioned are the same day, or really close together.

 Anyone have any advice icon_lol. Oh, and BTW did anyone play the RB6 Vegas demo on Live!? I`m gonna check it out soon enough.

 I already preordered GoW, but depending on how everything gets reviewed ...:icon_confused:.
1988  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: SC:DA is good fun so far! on: October 23, 2006, 09:40:28 AM
 I would say your impressions are the COMPLETE eek!!! opposite as mine icon_surprised. Hehe. To each his own. I`m loving the streamlined MP and the new stuff they did add. I never read up on it alot as far as being lied to so. I did read reviews and previews and I thought it was pretty clear what I was getting. And while the SP is similar to PT , in some regards. It`s WAY better honestly. it`s way better than CT IMHO. It`s not just the leap from PT to CT. Like I said to each his own icon_wink.
1989  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: SC:DA is good fun so far! on: October 23, 2006, 08:39:37 AM

 Great game still. I`m only really getting into the SP now, and it is about what I would expect and then some. Good stuff. I`ve been REALLY hooked on the MP. One question though, IGN said there was a update for it at launch. Mine didn`t update nor did others I spoke to. Any ideas?

 So far the single and MP games both are very entertaining. I`ve no crashes, but it was laggy at first. It seems to have gotten better with more time after Live! came back up. I just played tonight and the games were all very smooth. I also played a bit more SP. Good stuff there too.

Gamespot review- 8.5.

Sounds pretty good but it seems more Pandora Tomorrow vice Chaos Theory (ie treading water vice a leap forward).  Which is fine- I really liked Pandora Tomorrow but it sounds like we might have to wait until next time out for another leap forward.

GS mentions the poor framerate on occasion which really bugs me.  By most accounts it's not a huge step up graphically from CT (indeed I think it's the same engine) so there is really no excuse for sub-30 fps performance IMO. 

 Well, when CT came out they did say that the engine was designed from the ground up for the 360, and then scaled back for CT on the original Xbox. That`s not to say it`s a ugly game at all. Far from it. Quite stunning actually.

 And the framerate seems fine to me so far, maybe it dips and that really shouldn`t happen, but it doesn`t get bad at all from my experience so far. Live! is up and I`m getting ready to play some MP. I freaking loved the Mp demo!
1994  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SC:DA is good fun so far! on: October 18, 2006, 10:12:42 AM

 That`s simply it. I played the single player for a little while tonight and since Live! was down until just recently no MP for me until tomarrow crybaby. Overall I like the changes they made to the gameplay. It`s still good old SC, just better. The graphics, sound, and all of the presentation is amazing. The animation is super smooth from what I`ve seen. Well, I need to sleep so I can get my shit done early tomarrow,, rather...and sit my ass back down and play some more SP, then some MP. Anyone else got this yet?

 Hehe. Miscommunication icon_lol. The router is GREAT, no issues with it now. The current issue is when I "ripped" music on the HDD and played it. It locked up the system in PGR3 and in the dashboard. Since I deleted the music, it *seems* fine. I haven`t had lots of time to be on recently, so only time will prove. I did buy the warranty from EB, and it`s only been a few weeks since I got it. Just everything else seems to working great. The CDs I "ripped" on the 360 were old, kinda crappy cdrs, but the original xbox never had an issue with that, to my knowledge. Could that be it? Or the Harddrive? Just curious. I wanna get this squared away soon that`s all. I did grab that memory card just in case like I said... disgust
