2363  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Crazy stuff from nvidia... on: March 13, 2005, 08:17:59 PM
This post "was" about a video card...not really about consoles... :wink:

  I did pay $400.00 for this 6800gt last year. That is kinda crazy since I can(probably) buy a next-gen console for that much in the next year or so.
  I can`t imagine having running 2 of these 512 cards in SLI mode. WOW!!! :shock:

I just grabbed this finally. What a great game so far. If you like M&L superstar saga for gba and the original paper mario I`d think you`d love this one. I know I`m a little late to the party on this one, but wow. I played only a few hours so far and the whole thing is tons of fun so far. The graphics are great(especially in progressive scan), and the audio is just as good. The gameplay seems to be lots of fun, and the whole world just seems "right". I`m floored by this so far, I simply couldn`t be more happy about picking this one up.

Well I picked this up(MVP)> I only got a chance to play two games so far. One offline and one online. Both were great. The online was suprisingly smooth and a ton of fun. I`m really liking this so far. This game looks great in 720p. Not bad at all for $29.99.

2381  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which baseball game is for me??? on: March 10, 2005, 04:14:18 AM
I`m looking for this on Xbox. I`m not a real baseball fan, but for some reason baseball games have always been fun for me. I`m looking at both MLB and MVP. MVP has 720p support and I`ve never used that yet on my TV...so that`s a real point of interest. They both support Live!, but I`m not sure how good each are on Live!. Does anyone have any comments on any of this? MLB is $20.00 and MVP is $29.99. Thanks.

I`m running this in 480p mode and it looks like I explained earlier. I do play without crosshairs and it`s great that way IMO. You really should give it a chance, it really opens up into a beast of a game!

I can't even tell where the targeting cursor is half the time.  


Targeting cursor? U mean you arent using the iron sights?

Keep in mind you are still in the "tutorial" phase.  that mg was set up like that to teach you how they work and how to deal with them.  Later on in the game specificly in "Buying The Farm" you wil be wishing there was a nice alley for you to go down.


 I`m also confused by some of these statements. The graphics aren`t hl2 , h2 or doom3 graphics, but they aren`t bad. I have a high end pc and I play alot and I`m not bummed by the graphics in this game. Sure the textures aren`t great and a sky here or there is kinda ugly, but then there`s alot that looks good to me. It`s not super bright, which I like. It shouldn`t look bright really, it looks like I think it should...Gritty and whatnot. There isn`t a targeting cursor by default, and it`s best that way I think. And he is right, that`s basically the tutorial phase, and it REALLY opens up. This game flat out rocks. I`ve played all of the wwII PC shooters and this thing IMO, is better. And really fresh in comparision. Good stuff it is!!!

How to Submit your Retail CDKey to Valve to get it Reset to a new Steam Account

This answer is intended for those customers who are requesting to transfer a retail package product CD-Key from one Steam Account to another or to prove ownership of a retail packaged product and assign a previously used retail package product CD-Key to their Steam Account.

Retail Package CD-Key Reset from Valve

If you still have your original printed CD-Key and product CD from a retail package for a Valve product to prove ownership, we can reset your CD-Key however, there is a $10.00 handling fee for this service.



Like I said, not impressed.


 Steam is far from perfect. But,what it does well, it does really well IMHO. I hate tracking down patches etc for games all the time. That`s where steam really shines.

I didn`t really have a hard time with it at all, and I`mnot great at games or anything. The save system is silly, and I don`t really like it BUT...it didn`t ruin the game at all for me. To each his/her own.
2387  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY! Brothers in Arms Reviewed! on: March 06, 2005, 06:19:47 PM
I`m still enjoying this lots too. The sp is great, I`m not very far into it yet though. The MP is also loads of fun, with the right people. And that issue of server full on live! is a pain in the ass, but I`ve only seen it once or twice. So I`m thinking you had bad luck if you tried for a half hour without getting in. Tonight I`m too busy to play, but I`m going to make sure I play more of this soon,lots more of it, and real soon. Great game so far.

It's totally a nipple. She's got fairly big breasts and that "fold in the cloth" is right where her nipple would be. I'm kind of a breasts man, so a quick glance at the chest is instinctual at this point. A nipple never goes unnoticed with me  :wink: .

Wow, it's all screen. And it does make the DS look a little clunky. Props to the designers.


 While I do think the PSP has a nice design and is small. Even with the DS having 2 screens, I still wouldn`t call it clunky :wink: .

I would... the SP was such a great design, it's as if the DS designers looked at it and said "OK, let's do the OPPOSITE!"  :lol:


 The DS is like the SP, just bigger really. I like the design. I can`t imagine how it would/could work any better really.

Attadude, you really don`t like the graphics? I have a high pc and play all the high end games at high settings and still think BIA has good visuals. Like I said the textures aren`t the best I`ve seen, but not the worst by far either. And when I look closely at stuff I can nitpick it, and the graphics aren`t perfect. But, when just relaxing and playing the game I often find that the visuals do a good job of looking gritty and dirty while still having some nice effects and whatnot going off all around me. Overall, I`d still say I`m impressed by the visuals. Not so much as the tech, but the art behind. What TV are yo on? I`m on a 32inch sony trini HD, and this game runs 480p and it looks nice. I`m glad you`re obviously still enjoying the game, and to each his own, but I`m just confused by you thinking the visuals are crap. Oh, well. Enjoy this game everyone.

Wow, this game rocks. I played for two hours or so of the single player and I spend some time with the multiplayer too.
   
  The graphics are rather impressive as a whole. I`ve seen better textures before, but they certainly aren`t bad. Just a bit muddy. It doesn`t even bother me, but I wanted to let you guys know. The trees and grass all look and move realistically in the wind. Where bullets hit dust clouds pop up. The light bloom lighting(if that`s what it is) is really nice and not overly done at all. Explosions and fire seem to look really great too. The physics are impressive so far too. Like I said as a whole, the graphics are really nice.
   
 The sound is also just as good. Everything sounds real to me. Bullets  hitting the ground,the fence, the metal etc. It helps point out that your getting shot at, and from where. The music is good too so far. The voice acting is a mixed bag. I haven`t really heard enough to say how mixed and which way. It`s certainly not taking anything away from the game. Overall I`m really impressed by the sound so far as well.
 
   The gameplay is loads of fun in both sp and mp. The ai is really solid. Beyond solid. It`s not perfect, but really seems to do it`s job. Since the ai is in both sp and mp, this makes both gamemodes really work for me. If you find a good person to team up with, the mp is really rewarding, for me at least. And the sp game has you doing one fun thing and right on to another.
 
   There`s a story. This isn`t COD which had no story(I still loved this game though). But it isn`t as story driven as half-life or thief or something of that nature. It obviously has more story than any other WWII game though, so it seems.

 As you can tell I like this game so far. I`ll post more after I play more. Later.
