2401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psychonauts!!! on: April 21, 2005, 02:59:26 AM
I`m trading some crap in tomarrow I think for this one. I`ll post impressions. So far though, everyone seems to love it.
2402  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / My in-laws need an older pc system (Done Deal)! on: April 14, 2005, 05:22:19 AM
I have a 1.8 ghz, 40gb hdd, geforce 3ti 200 64mb card, sblive, 768 ddr mb etc. I`m debating getting rid of or keeping it. What are you willing to play. I was talking to someone else from here, and I still have to get back to him, but I think he found something else. Not sure though. It`s a dell.

Popping pills just because you feel a little "funny" isn't the best idea in the long run you know... Don't want to preach here, but just wanted to mention that.


 Dude, I got ya. Since I usually(KNOCK ON WOOD!)don`t get many colds... When I do get one, I take something. I can`t stand just going for weeks with a cold. Screw that :wink: .

I don`t like the name, but I really don`t care about it *that* much. Backward compatibility would be nice, and I`m sure I`d ditch the old xbox and just use this new one, but I`ll be fine either way. I definately like HD games, and more Live! features etc. I think(other than the name maybe) that they are headed in the right direction, that`s for sure.

well I'm not the one busting someone elses balls about having an opinion on a video game system, I try to be chill... I just get tired of getting the same responses in the same threads, and having to post the same replies over and over and over and over and over...


 I wasn`t saying you were, and my comment wasn`t directed at anyone specifically. I just see way too much bitching going on around here, and everywhere really. Just a simple comment directed at humans in general, that`s all :wink: .
2406  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / I hate colds!!! on: April 14, 2005, 03:16:50 AM
That`s the same here. Not a really bad cold,but just enough to slow me down and I get NOTHING done. Well, I play lots of games...maybe colds aren`t so...nevermind :wink: . I`m taking tylenol cold and I`m buzzed up all the time. Even without medicine I feel buzzed up when I have a cold. I *think* I`m getting a bit better though, hopefully this will be over soon.

I`m going to have to disagree with you on one thing. I know alot of people don`t agree with me, but I think wipeout pure has lots of replay. I just find it simply LOTS of fun. The zone mode, single races, 4 and 8 race tournaments. There`s a lot there for me at least. I`m not saying they`re wrong, I`m just saying not everyone is thinking like that, that`s all :wink: .

finger! Take that colds! :angry:  Ug, I haven`t had a cold in a long time, and things havebeen better even since I quit smoking. But, I got something...Something little, but something nevertheless. I forgot how "drugged" I feel without taking anything at all. I hate every single thing(at least I think...) about colds. Sorry for the rant, but I had to smirk .

"The DS seems to be for a weird set of people: non-gamers, and jaded jerks who want something wacky and unique." -Jeremy Parish, 1up.com

 I always see that on the bottom of someone`s posts. Lord ebonstones. I have no issue with him, just the quote.
 That dude you said it must be screwy in the head. I`m a gamer. I have a highend pc, a xbox, a gamecube, a ds, and a psp. I`m not a jaded jerk. I do like wacky sometimes, and I do like unique sometimes, don`t we all? If things are NOT different and they are all the same, people complain. If things are different people still complain.
 Don`t mind me for venting. I`m just puzzled by comments like that, that`s all.

BTW, red storm has NOTHING to do with this or the other splinter cells. Or rainbow six xbox I believe. I think they made ghost recon 1 and 2 though.
 And I wouldn`t let the gamespot review sway your opinion, this game is simply alot better than the other splinter cells.


That's not counter to the GS review- it says right in it that it has the best multiplayer and single player of all of the Splinter Cells.


 I guess my point is that IMO gamespot isn`t giving this game the credit it deserves. I really don`t care what ratings are, I`m not here to bitch about that. But, when I see people say "I`m not getting this one now because of that gamespot review" I want to slap them, or someone :wink: . It is seriously a GREAT game. I`m only on the 3rd mission and it is REALLY impressive.  The single player, co-op, and vs. all rock. I`m not sure since I haven`t beat it yet, but if it keeps going this way...this is going to easily be on of my favorites of all time. Great game.
2419  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best PSP Launch Game? on: April 01, 2005, 09:43:49 PM
Quote from: "msduncan"
My honeymoon is still going strong even after a couple system exchanges (one due to my own pickyness, and the other due to a black piece of dust under the center of the screen).

Wipeout is pure gaming bliss on the run.   I can wip out a race in no time flat, and I LOVE the way the PSP just saves where you are when you power off.  I see the downloading potential here too!  

I'm going to skip Tiger Woods in favor of Hot Shots when it comes in May.   I'm renting Lumines to find out what the hype is about, and also plan to rent Untold Legends.

The hardware seems very robust and sexy.   I don't mind at all playing it in public areas because it just looks so sophisticated.    My coworkers even turned their heads at Spider Man 2.

So for I have not an ounce of buyer's remorse, and I'm going to sell my DS to pay for more PSP 'stuff' purchases.   Even if it means putting the money aside for future purchases.


 Not to be a prick :wink: , but I wanted to let you know that if it "saves where you are" you are NOT tunring it off, just putting into sleep mode. I`m a huge fan of wipeout also!

Quote from: "depward"
Quote from: "Dimmona"
After browsing the thread, I went ahead and opened up Wipeout.  It took me a while to get used to the floatiness, but now that I have a few races under my belt I'm enjoying it.  My only gripe is the lack of any sort of career mode - all there seems to be are single races or 4 track tournies... other than that, the graphics/sound/complete package are very impressive indeed.  I can't wait to try it out multiplayer!

Don't forget the zone mode.  That's quite fun in itself.  Sure, it's a "how many times in a row can I race around the same lap before having all of my energy depleted", but it's fun to start off real slow and easy . . . and by the end just FLY around the track.


 For some reason people aren`t seeing that there are 8 races tournaments also. Good fun.

They don`t mention the crazy amounts of shitty systems out there right now(defects etc.). Sony=lots, Nintendo=lots less. I like both, but that`s the truth.

Quote from: "DonD"
Arrgh.  Gretzky just corrupted all of its saved data on me with the exception of my options settings.

So my season is gone.  Rosters are gone.  Gretzky challenge progress is gone.  User statistics are gone.  I tried replacing the previous saved data, and when that didn't work, tried a new data save..again, no dice.

I have no idea why this happened or what triggered it.  I finished up a season game (winning 5-4, and getting my first hat trick), and it just wouldn't save.

But hey, at least it remembered how loud I like to have the menu music :roll:

I was worried that my whole memory stick went bad, but the data for the other games I have (Lumines, Wipeout) is still there and working fine.

Man, I'm so frustrated right now.

 Anyone else see this at all? Or anything like it?

2428  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP - dead pixels? on: March 29, 2005, 08:08:41 PM
While I love this system, I don`t like sony much. Their quality assurance is really low or something. I`m glad I got the warranty or I would be pissed.
2429  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Short Take] Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - Xbox on: March 29, 2005, 08:02:56 PM
I`m also on the 2nd mission,and while I liked the 1st  2 games(yet understood what others didn`t like) this one is WAY better,and just lots of fun.
 Very good graphics(probably best on a console), no kidding about the rain on sam`s suit :shock: , crazy amounts of detail in pretty much everything this game has to offer.
 The physics are alot better too, they behave realistically and are convincing.
 I gave the co-op a quick run last night, but I only did the training since there`s so much other stuff in the game to check out.
2430  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Splinter Cell - PC or XBox? on: March 29, 2005, 08:01:38 PM
Not sure about the pc version, but the xbox version(while lacking 480p support, I think) looks amazing. Best looking console game I have ever seen. There`s a demo for xbox out too if you want to check it out. What resolution were you running the demo at?
2431  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SC:CT(XBOX) tonight I should have it, anyone else? on: March 28, 2005, 10:22:56 PM

 Expensive games
 And HORRID quality assurance
 
 It`s a great system, it just has some flaws.

Mine has 1 dead pixel and I'm exchanging it today.  Grr.


 I`d watch out, you might get a worse one...


I exchanged mine at lunch for a flawless one.  I opened it up in-store to make sure that everything was copacetic.  I swapped out the memory card and the battery (since mine was fully charged) and away I went.  I picked up the extended warranty which I know is usually a rip-off, but I just wanted to be safe since this thing is so new.  The girl at Best Buy was really nice about it all (I did use my Masculine Wiles +3 on her).

You know, I had a shoddy deal when I bought mine.  You see, I bought one from a local store here (the "local" Gamestop/EB is about an hour and a half away) and when I asked if I could expect it before I bought it they said that they called Sony and Sony told them NOT to do that.  Which is wonky if you ask me.  But then I asked a local chain after that and they said the same thing - no opening and inspecting.  Weirdness!  I'm glad I got one (I think - from what I can spot) pixel-free.


 You have no pixels!!! :shock:  I`m just kiddin`, I`m sleepy and hungry right now, don`t mind me :wink: .
2437  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SC:CT(XBOX) tonight I should have it, anyone else? on: March 28, 2005, 08:51:32 PM
I`d say "this may be the best xbox game to date" is pretty enthusiastic :wink: . I`m thinking I`ll love it. I really didn`t have many gripes with the last 2 games. I know lots of you will find that hard to believe, especially since I`m a huge thief fan :shock: .

 Here`s some stuff from the gamespy review.
 
 Pros
 Jaw-dropping graphics; solo mode offers more in-mission choices than ever; excellent online co-op and versus multiplayer modes; great sound and score.  
 Cons
Default difficulty may be too easy for veterans; graphics look too realistic sometimes.  
 
 "Now, Montreal is ready to show gamers what they've spent the last few years creating: one of the best Xbox games of all time." -gamespy

 "However, the developers at Ubisoft wanted to ensure that there was more than one way to get through a level, and they've succeeded in crafting the video game version of a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book." -gamespy

 "I normally wouldn't care about changing people's view of a franchise or a genre, but this game should be enjoyed by every type of gamer. You can play it however you'd like: stealthily or aggressively, smartly or stupidly, alone or with friends. It's worth checking out, even if you just want to see the most impressive graphics of this console generation. The team from Montreal has shown us that they can deliver the goods. They've also given us a glimpse into the future of gaming, and it's looking brighter than ever." -gamespy

 There`s lots more where that came from too :wink: . I`m certainly not trying to change anyones mind. But everything I`ve read on this game makes me really looking forward to playing it!
2438  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SC:CT(XBOX) tonight I should have it, anyone else? on: March 28, 2005, 08:41:38 PM
They fixed ALOT in the single player from what I`ve read. The alarm system is alot better, same with the ai, and overall it`s alot more open ended and not as difficult from what I`ve read. Once I play, I`ll let you know.

 Most stores tomarrow through thursday I think, but my EB should be getting them early. They said after 6pm or so tonight. Give `em a ring if you want :wink: .
2439  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SC:CT(XBOX) tonight I should have it, anyone else? on: March 28, 2005, 08:26:28 PM
It looks like after dinner I`ll be running out to pick this one up. My EB say they should have it around 6pm. Anyone else getting early? I`m really looking forward to playing some online co-op goodness etc. All the reviews for it so far are great, and Ubisoft fixes all kinds of things with the series. I liked the others, I`ll love this one.
