2121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / replayed F.E.A.R. on: December 18, 2005, 11:45:27 AM
Wow, while there are some flaws (like with anything...) this  game rocks. I`ve played it twice now, and I`ll play it again. Maybe next Halloween or something.
 Spoilers , I guess.

 The middle of it does drag, and they stretched it a bit. Quite a bit of filler in the middle. But, when it does what it does so right, this game is just extremely fun. The battles are crazy fun thanks to the ai. Just fun, that`s it!

 BTW, did anyone here run it with a system with 512mb , and a lesser ati card. Not sure which one. I`m gonna check. I have a friend that wants to play it, but hes not sure how it will run on his machine. Doom3 runs well on it he says, so I figure... Any ideas?

 It just got released over steam and people are seeming to LOVE it right now. Any comments?

We are taught in massage school that rubbing the belly counter clockwise will help with diarrhea. Haven't tried it myself but some say it helps.


 Hmm...I`ll try to remember that. That`s interesting.

I have the D-Link DI-624. I picked it because Nintendo says it works with the DS and it DOES! Got it for $40 after rebate.


 That`s what I`m looking at right now. Can any of you guys comment on how those routers work with xbox Live! ?

Couple times a day usually. then I skip a day. Sometimes up to 6 times in one day. Depends on what Ive ate and how much and if Ive got my frequent diarrhea.


 I`ve went that many or more times in a day. Heh. Not frequent diarrhea though...I actually for the most part liked my schedule, well for the most part. I agree it`s nice to "get it out" before you leave the house and go out for the day etc. :wink:  I do have a really high metabolism, does that mean anything? I thought it meant that I would get the "boxes through the warehouse" fast? :lol:  But , am I wrong?

Harp, that sounds very not normal.  Most adults defecate somewhere between twice-a-day and once every two days.  Do you get enough roughage?  Drink enough water?  Deficits in both can easily cause constipation.

If I were you (and right now I'm glad I'm not :wink:), I'd seek the advice of a GI doctor.  I find the numb hands and feet particularly worrisome.


 Thanks, I think that`s gonna be the plan really soon, to go to the doctor. I am going to start a few things like drinking WAY more water. I probably don`t enough "roughage" as I should and/or used to. And to explain the numbness a bit more...It actually kinda felt like maybe cramping like the kind in my stomach, but SO intense that it became numbing. Maybe that explains that better too.

Honestly I go poopie about once every 3-4 days or so.  Though, I guess I can check it up to my physical state whereas I was quite skinny at one point of time (went on a "eat one bowl of oatmeal and run 5 miles a day" diet about 3 years ago) and didn't "go" too much then.  Now, I'm gaining weight and now am up to what the "average" should be for my height and still doing only about once every 3-4 days MAYBE once every two days sometimes.

About your second question - I have no idea!  That's a weird situation.  Your limbs going numb might be a sort of cause for concern, but, I don't know.  Hopefully someone can weigh in on that poopy situation for you   biggrin


 Ahh. Thanks for the late night help :wink: . I`m slim. I do eat alot though. I have a high metabolism ( LOL, sp? ). I`m curious what other say, keep `em coming. Thanks.
2131  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ok, here`s a question for you guys and gals... on: December 14, 2005, 08:43:40 AM
Awhile back over at gonegold, I posted asking how often people poop. I got mixed reviews Tongue . Well, I`d like to hear those answers here, but also I have another question for some folks around here :wink: .

 So first off, how often do you poop? Simple enough.
 
 Now, here`s the second question. And this really is more of a medical question. Let me explain first...Ready for this?...

 I`ll make this straight and to the point. I usually "poop" quite frequently. Like at least twice a day...no shit :lol: . Enough bad jokes...From time to time I won`t go as much for a little awhile , and it does vary but that`s the norm. Last week, I only went like 4 times...not much for me. I felt all bloated etc. NOT fun. So on Saturday I go to my wifes holiday work party and eat and drink and have a good time. I come home, I still can`t go, so I go to bed and figure tomarrow will be the day. Well...
 
 I woke up on Sunday feeling like I was going to explode...really...I could not go, even though I felt I really, really needed to. After a few minutes and a bit of shit coming out (always funny to say :wink: ) I still felt horrid. So I went back to bed for 2 hours, and guess what woke me up this time? I had to go again. So, I ended up taking milk of magnesia (sp? its late) . It seemed to make me go, but I was still really hurting. For the next couple hours I was really, really sick. This went on from early sunday morning, until late monday night...And today, I def feel better, but wow my stomach is sore as hell.

 What the hell could this be? Was I just constipated (sp? heh)for a really long time and my body just got sick or something because of it? When I first felt sick on sunday morning I felt so sick that, I kid you not, my hands and feet went numb and i felt like I was going to puke. Oh, and I did that...and I tried to catch it in my hands...I thought that would work...no so much.  Also, it went from straight I couldnt shit , to I couldn`t keep it in...ick.

 Any ideas? Noone else that ate at the party got sick...and I did have the week long dry spell. So I don`t think it was the food. I`m looking into adjusting my diet and whatnot. I eat good, I guess just not good enough , maybe. I`ve had this happen before, it just usally goes away after I go to the bathroom. It never has lasted days...If noone responds, I`ll understand why :wink: . Thanks.

I REALLY need a frickin` wireless router and quick. Hopefully I`ll be able to pick one up in the next few weeks.

 I posted about this before in hardware forum, but this has something to do with AC:WW so...

 What routers are you guys using. I looked at the linksys routers. This one was said to be great->http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?childpagename=US%2FLayout&packedargs=c%3DL_Product_C2%26cid%3D1127782957298&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper

 But then I found out that the newer revisions sucks for both sboxlive and nintendo wifi network.

 Then I found this one->http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=299

 Supposedly this one has issues with certain revisions also...Is there anyone out there that doesn`t?

 Now, has anyone here had either of these? Also I`ve a few people say that Animal Crossing is more troublesome on the wifi network than MK:DS. Is that true? And who can recommend the best wireless router out there at a good price? I want to use it for XBOX Live, my PC, and nintendo wifi. Any ideas?

 And back to the game. Holy shit!!! I also REALLY disagree that this is just a port of the Gamecube game. Sure the main structure of the game is the same, but holy hell...There is ALOT of new stuff to this game. ALOT! I`ve put way, way, way too much of my time into this game so far, and I will continue too. My wife is getting a DS for christmas+AC:WW also. FUn times ahead.

I simply can`t get enough of this game. I`m liking still, ALOT more on the handheld so far. Just better suited for handheld play, that`s all. BTW, who here adjusts the clock and who here doesn`t? I did with the cube version. But so far here I haven`t. But, I do play alot late at night, and no open store=hard to make money. Still lots to do, but no open store hurts the $$$. And ideas? Between this and MK, the wait for my 360 around Feb should go very fast and easy!


Because this has such a robust online element to it, I think that adjusting the clock is most definitely cheating, and it isn't too fair to the other people you'll connect to who are not doing so.

Right now, Nooks is open from 8am - 11pm.  That's a lot of time.  I suggest you get a dresser which can hold over 90 items, catch fish, collect shells, etc... and then take 5 minutes in the 8am - 11pm time frame to go into Nook's, sell all of the items, and buy what you need.


 I did ask... :wink:

 Wow, that seems a bit harse. Obviously I did want to know peoples opinions. I guess I just NEVER thought of it as that way^. It`s not a competitive game really is it? So really, how is that cheating? On top of that, I`m not using the wi-fi right now and prolly won`t be until about Feb. (I`m going wifi when I grab the 360).
 Anyone else think this is cheating? I`d assume the most it would be considered is "cheating" yourself if you abuse this. Like if you were to use it to get money left and right etc. But, those aren`t my plans. Just a simple 12 hours back and forth every once in awhile to do more day/night time things depending on when I CAN PLAY. That`s it. Keep the opinions O` coming. I`m really curious now.

 Sorry if I sounded mean, I just guess I wouldn`t have got that kind of response :wink:


Yeah, I understand what you're saying.  Obviously it's your game, and you can play it however you'd like.  Personally, I like that certain things happen at certains times, and if I'm not available for them, then I miss out.  I'm a big fan of alternate worlds and artifical life simulations, and for me, changing the time on a whim would take away from the feeling of "living" in another world.


 I see your point also. We agree to disagree :wink: .

Quote from: "corruptrelic"
Yet when you compare everything side by side on the DS and PSP, the PSP is a clear winner. From graphics, to online web browsing, listening to mp3s, watching movies, playing games online, and some decent games you'll never see with nintendo. (Battlefront 2, Battlefield 2, GTA, etc.)
Had them both at one point and after seeing the graphics on the PSP (yeah I'm a graphics whore) compared to the DS, I just coudn't go back to the DS ever again, and ended up trading it.


 I compared side by side and...I kept the DS and got rid of the PSP. And, get this...I`m getting a 2nd DS for the wife.
 
 The PSP was/is a buggy handheld that tried to do too much, and didn`t do much of it that good IMHO. I do admit the graphics are better on the psp. But that`s it. I don`t want to read on the internet on my handheld.

 My PC is right down the hallway...And loading screens... UG!!! I never was fussy about loading screens but, sheesh the PSP changed that. Lots of waiting.

  It`s not a bad system and it will have some good games, but the key word is will. I just found it overpriced, buggy and aside from it`s graphics, lackluster. Metoes ownes lumines, MK:DS ownes ridge racer, and so on and so on. Nintendogs is a good title too.

 It`s NOT bad to try different things. The DS is doing that really well, and I`m assuming the REV will too. Before the DS came out (just about a year ago) the best handheld graphics were GBA... The psp does have the best graphics, but come on. Mario 64 on a handheld blew me away last year and MK:DS blew me away this year. The DS may not have the psp`s graphic ability, but it`s not too shabby either.

 I just know why people don`t  like ANYTHING new. Oh, well. To each his/her own.  :wink:

I think Nintendo's perfectly okay with MS and Sony duking it out like hell for SUPREMACY with the hardcore gamers, while they satisfy an entirely untapped market.


The question is whether that untapped market is inclusive of gamers or not.  I shudder when I hear Miyamoto talk about how games are too hard or we start waving a remote control around as a controller.  Don't get me wrong, the Rev and it's controller could be very cool - the question is will it be used for mass-audience Eye Toy type games or will it be used for games that hardcore gamers are interested in.

I can very easily see a Revolution that sells lots of systems to people who don't game right now and that has zero games that interest me on it.


 I kinda though the same about the DS when they announced it too. I got one on launch day, and LOVE it.

Tell me about it.  I bought a delicious 34" CRT and it weighs in at over 160 pounds (plus 25 for packaging).  Hell of a picture but damn if I didn't almost kill myself getting it in my house and set up.  I actually had my neighbor and her sister help me.  Combined they don't weigh 200 pounds but they are hellcats.  They were more determined to get this thing in and hooked up than I was.

My friend saw mine and wanted one, but then I reminded him that he lives in a third floor apartment. :lol: For that I reccomend an LCD or plasma, which is why I'm watching this thread closely.
