1241  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: January 17, 2006, 07:57:28 AM
No, there's plenty of room to get around my city.  I've scouted that far.  He has his warrior at my city gates so he's well inside my meager territory.  I do have a warrior defending.  Odd.

I can't believe I'm already at war.   Verity, I believe, of the Chinese declared war on me.  I'm at a loss to see why.  If he knocks me out, it's not much of a victory (the city's not big enough to be captured).  You might gain a little room.  If the rush fails, a war this early seems crippling to both of us.  Maybe it's a brilliant strategy that I just don't understand?  Thoughts?
1243  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sins Interview on: January 14, 2006, 06:49:56 AM
I just put up an interview with the game's director.

Please check it out.

As always feedback is appreciated.  By the way you might want to vote in the poll while you're there.

I'm working on a GalCiv II interview as well.

Multiples are always an option, but if you didn't see anything on the list, it'll probably be a while before I add to it.  I'm sorry, I don't have FEAR.  I think Tron 2.0 is the most recent Monolith game I have.

1248  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Larger PS2 Memory Cards on: January 07, 2006, 12:03:30 AM
I just wanted to add that I tested the memory card with Sony's DNAS online authentication system.  I was concerned that in addition to checking the disk and PS2, it might look at the memory card.  Regardless, the card passed DNAS authentication using the Ratchet Deadlocked online disk which is the latest DNAS version I have.  So no conflicts there.
1249  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Drama/blog] Getting... tired. on: January 06, 2006, 07:00:05 PM
You want to know the secret to happiness?  It's simple.

Help people.

You gain perspective when you help people.  You feel better about yourself when you help people.  You learn about people when you help people (quite useful for a writer).  You meet other people who help people when you help people.   It's amazing how many of your own problems you can solve when you help people.

Don't like churches?  Ok, start with civic organizations that help people.  College quite often seems passive.  When you help people, you're doing something.  Teach English, teach reading, teach computers, straighten out finances, build houses, mentor kids, help people fill out aid forms.  Just do something.  Good luck.

Quote from: "Hetz"
Well, I guess we will wait and see. I am still thinking there will be 2 SKU's....either that or the price of the PS3 is going to be a lot more than people here are expecting. $500+ easily. I can't see it for less than that with a bluray drive, Sony can't stand to lose as much per unit as MS can. They would be a taking a HUGE loss at $399 with a bluray drive.

You're thinking too short term.  If bluray wins, Sony not only gets a piece of every PS3 game sold, but every HD movie sold.  That's a fortune they can't afford to ignore (or lose).  Yes it's a big loss, but it gets them market share in two markets at once.  Sony need the cell to succeed and bluray to succeed.  The only way to ensure that is have the PS3 succeed.  They can't afford to price themselves out of the market any more than they could drop either of those core technologies.
1251  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Devil May Cry 3 - Special Edition on: January 06, 2006, 04:31:55 AM
Count me in the crowd that decided to wait for God of War instead of struggling with the difficulty on DMC3.  Does that make me the target audience?  I'll probably pick it up this time.

I'm a bit surprised more publishers don't do this.  It seems like a good way to cash in money that otherwise would be lost to the used game market.

I trust you will keep us updated if you have any troubles with it down the road.

And that's crazy, the JavaScript page loading thing.  What's that about?  I've not used PostNuke in a while, is that a new feature or is does it have to do with the stuff on the sidebars?

Yes, if I have problems I'll let you know.  So far so good.  I read a bunch of customer reviews and only found one person who had save file corruption.  So far, I've put it through a bunch of read/write operations without any errors.

It looks like the sale at Circuit City where they had them for $30 is over, but $35 still isn't bad considering that's still less than a 2 pack of Sony 8MB memory cards.

The javascript is just a loading status bar.  They put it in .760 so I got it when I upgraded to .761.  It doesn't really bother me, but if it's annoying I can take it out of the theme.  I'll have to do that sometime when I'm awake.

1256  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Serious freakin problems setting up my wireless bridge on: January 04, 2006, 10:48:45 PM
Quote from: "msduncan"
I took the wireless bridge upstairs to my computer and ran the setup disk that came with it.   It set up the bridge and some settings in my router "automagically" and at that point the network light on the bridge started flashing.

I then unplugged it and took it downstairs to my 360 and plugged it back in and ran the tests.   BOOM.   It worked!

Um.  Remember that thread where you were asking about the bridge and I said:
Quote from: "Hrothgar"
Yes, the bridges and gaming adapters are essentially the same thing.  You might have to initially configure the bridge by connecting it to your computer, but after that you'll be good to go.

See, I was trying to help you avoid that problem.  It looks like I failed my tech assistance roll.  Glad you got it working in the end.

1259  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Compatible Wireless USB adaptors for Xbox 360? on: December 28, 2005, 04:12:23 AM
It's not much cheaper, but linksys is offering rebates on some of their networking products.

Here's the Linksys Wireless G Gaming Adapter at ZZF.

It's $82 with free 2 day shipping and a $10 mail in rebate (so a net of $72).

The B version is cheaper if you must save money.  It should be ok for gaming, but not streaming video as mentioned above.

1261  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Larger PS2 Memory Cards on: December 23, 2005, 10:27:43 PM
Clearly it's not about saving money; it's about increased functionality.  If Sony came out with a 32MB PS2 card and I could get a 64 MB Pelican at the same price, I'd probably go with the Sony.  I tend not to like deleting saves, especially saves where I've unlocked a lot of stuff.  So I end up swapping cards and moving saves a lot.  I just want to be able to use one card.  If Sony won't do it, I'm hoping someone else has stepped up.  If not, I'll keep swapping and moving.

It doesn't help that half the games won't even look to see if there's a memory card in slot 2, let alone one of the multitap slots.  We saw how well the hard drive worked for saves (that weren't FFXI).  I don't think I'm crazy because my Xbox (and even my Gamecube) have spoiled me so I don't have to worry about swapping memory card.
1262  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Larger PS2 Memory Cards on: December 22, 2005, 11:16:13 PM
Last year there was a rumor about a larger official PS2 memory card coming out, but like the memory stick adapter, it never materialized.  Are any of the third party larger memory cards any good.  I know some of them originally required a boot disk while others had physical switches to access different 8MB chunks of memory.  Did anyone ever come out with a PS2 memory card that just shows up as a large chunk of memory (32MB?  64MB?) but works just like a regular official card?  If so, which ones are quality and which should be avoided?

Thanks for the help.
1263  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Console RPG challenge of sort on: December 22, 2005, 09:22:55 PM
It's a RPG set in the modern United States.  You play a college student about to graduate with a degree in political science.  You customize your character (basic appearance, male/female, Republican/Democrat).  The intro/tutorial starts out as a formal debate.  You start out with some basic attacks (facts on your side) that you use as your equivalent to melee attacks.  You also have a limited number of special attacks in the form of rhetorical devices (think spells).  Some special attacks have counters and some opponents are immune to certain types of attacks (think elemental magics).

After you graduate, you start working with a small issue advocacy firm.  As you gain levels, you learn more advanced skills (spells), have better facts at your disposal (stronger basic attacks) and learn counters.  Eventually, you move on to a lobbying firm where you start to form your personal staff (your party).  You might have lawyers, fact checkers, advertising agents, etc.  You also develop a network of powerful contacts (summon spells) you can use in emergencies.  The more powerful the contact, the slower the recharge rate.

As you grow stronger, you move on to an electoral rich state and begin working on state campaigns.  Then you move on to the House, the Senate or Governor's races.  You start fighting both political opponents and an independent faction, the press.  Your ultimate goal is to help your candidate win the Presidency, and you serve as the White House Press Secretary.   As Press Secretary, you have to fight off the vicious Press Corps as well as opposition party attacks, back stabs from within your own party, opposing interest groups all while keeping your President's approval rating up.  At that level, there are tons of optional battles.  If you try to fight them all, you won't have the strength needed to win the big fights.  However, if your opponents win too many of the small battles, they're much tougher when you do fight them.

You want to have a successful two term President.  To do that, you need to  win a major initiative each year, win one major legacy battle per term, (obviously) win reelection, and keep the opposition from winning any legacy battles.

I wrote this a while back on my website:

Quote
Let's go back to my ultimate wargame genre. If you make it online and seamless enough, you could be the grunt on the front lines then walk into a command tent. There you take over tactical control of fire teams based on objectives from strategic command. Back at HQ they're working out the coordination of air, naval, ground and armor forces. They're securing supply lines. Maybe they're coordinating with space command to keep supplies coming in. Space command has their hands full trying to impose a blockade on the enemy while getting reinforcements landed on the planet. Plus there are those pesky space pirates. Then the Galactic President is working to make sure the war effort is funded. He's sending spies on missions to keep tabs on various alien factions. One of those spies has just found his way into the Asvalia central command. He's releasing a stream of nano bugs while trying to avoid detection by the security droids. Meanwhile his ride off the planet is negotiating a bribe with the orbital patrol to let him land his ore hauler. If nothing else, we can get emergent game play that way as genres fuse together to create more than worlds, but living universes.

I don't have any hate for Microsoft.   It just seems they're being less than honest here.

I believe Sarkus is the manager of a Gamestop.  From a prelaunch thread (where I was trying the same argument to defend MS):
Quote from: "Sarkus"
Quote from: "Hrothgar"
If you preordered during the summer, whoever was taking the order was doing so before they knew how many they were going to receive in their allocation.  Of course that's risky.  On the one hand, you prove to Microsoft that you have demand.  On the other, Microsoft is under no obligation to fulfill that demand in the first shipment.


That's not true at all.  I know for a fact that both EB and GameStop were given "sure thing" numbers back in June that they used to determine reservation quantities.  It was only in late September that MS began warning that they might not be able to meet those numbers after all.  That's when both chains (and everyone else who was doing pre-orders at the time, including WalMart online) stopped.

Sold out is sold out.  Shipping enough to GameStop and EB to cover 90% of the pre-orders would achieve the same "shortage" marketing hype and do so without alienating core customers.  What we have instead is the situation that arises when you miss your manufacturing targets by a wide margin.
1269  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 will be scarce for some time it seems on: December 14, 2005, 07:16:06 PM
Wait, they're trying to spin this as good?  I'm raising the BS flag.

Microsoft employees have an internal store to get products below retail price.  As long as he pays for it, I'm pretty sure S-O doesn't stop Balmer from shopping there.  This sound pure PR.

I seem to recall Sarkus mentioning that Microsoft cut shipments to retailers at least twice (once in summer and again before launch).  Now they're blaming retailers to overselling preorders?  That's cold.

I also fail to see how Microsoft missing all their production goals equates to greater than expected demand.  If they really want to help, they could release those weekly shipping numbers they keep talking about.

1272  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: AoE3 or DoW on: December 10, 2005, 01:21:25 AM
Quote from: "Xmann"
I've never been a good rts gamer, really terrible in all honesty.  However, i occasionally get an itch to play one...........and that time has come again.  The few rts games i have played and enjoyed are those with minimal micromanagment.  I played AoE2 a few years back and enjoyed it ok, but never got decent at it before i lost interest.
So now that i have that itch again i'm wondering about AoE3 or Dow and which would most recommend as being newbie friendly and minimal resource managment.  I played the AoE3 demo and felt kinda blah about it.  But demos usually do nothing for me anyhow so i'm not worried about that.  I hear the addition home cities takes a bit of the managment out of AoE and adds another dimension to the game.  As far as DoW goes, i know nothing.
Any suggestions?
You're really asking for two things, limited micromanagement and limited resource manangement.  For instance, Ground Control 2 has no resource management.  You only gain resource points by attacking enemies and holding control points.  Battles can still get micro heavy though.  Then there's something like Black and White 2 where combat is just throwing a bunch of units at the enemy and numbers carry the day (the war is won back at your city).

For the best combination of what your asking, I'm going to go off the board and say Kohan II.  The graphics aren't top notch like the two you mentioned (they're comparable to Warcraft III).  There's no micromanagment in battle.  You make your decisions when building your companies.  Once engaged, the only decision you have to make is if and when to retreat.  Resource management is similarly streamlined.  You choose your priorities while building your cities.  The end result is that you stay focused on the ebb and flow of battle.  You focus on keeping your infantry protecting your archers and catapults instead of worrying about switching the ammunition your catapult is using.  It's quite fun and can be found dirt cheap now.

I was writing quickly and might not have explained that well.  Feel free to ask any questions if you're interested.

Actually, it's Aspyr Media that's publishing them here.  So basically, you'd be supporting the idea that American publishers should take chances on hard to find European titles.  You'd also be supporting the developers.  But yes, JoWood will get some money out of the deal.
1274  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Holiday Gaming Value Idea on: December 07, 2005, 04:30:57 AM
I mentioned this on my site, but I thought I should remind people here.  A little while back JoWood put out a press release (GT posted it Here).  It's basically an American release of four complete games (including expansions).  They're all $20 a piece and there's some great gaming there.  I know Gogamer has them (GT Link).   Here are the games:

Quote
SpellForce Platinum – SpellForce Platinum features three games in one box – SpellForce Gold Edition, which includes The Order of the Dawn and Breath of Winter, plus the expansion pack Shadow of the Phoenix.  In SpellForce’s single-player action, players will enjoy a unique mixture of RTS and RPG elements that offer the player exciting gaming challenges through a persistent game world with a continuous, gripping storyline and numerous sub-quests.  While under SpellForce’s spell, player will encounter more than 150 new items and 27 powerful set items (some of which can be modified by the player).  The game offers multiplayer action where up to three gamers can play cooperatively over a LAN.
 
Gothic II Gold – Gothic II Gold includes the original game plus its expansion pack, Gothic II Night of the Raven.  In this popular RPG of action and adventure, players experience a storyline of intrigue and mystery as they wander through massive fully 3D lush environments, where players may encounter more than 500 characters.   With more than 50 magical artifacts, such as rings, amulets and belts; 50 magic spells to cast; and 150 powerful weapons to wield, players will have more than enough power to take on Evil.
 
Silent Storm Gold – Silent Storm Gold includes the original game plus its expansion pack.  This game is a true 3D tactical turn-based RPG set against the backdrop of WWII.   In order to win, players will need to successfully complete their missions through two non-linear campaigns while fighting on former battlefields and battling a secret terror organization. As a bonus, this Gold pack includes new mission goals, such as infiltration of enemy buildings, destruction of enemy establishments and assassinations. With an arsenal of more than 75 authentic weapons from WWII, players will have the gun power and blade power to achieve their goals.
 
The Guild Gold – The Guild Gold includes the original game plus its expansion pack.  In Guild, players jump into an authentic simulation of life in the middle ages.  In this edition, not only will players get to experience the original game, but they will also have three new ranks/titles to choose among, five new offices and more privileges.  Players will also enjoy the three new levels, three new locations such as the cannon tower and the Emperors Town of Nuremberg which is 3 times larger then previous towns.
Those could make a great small gift or stocking stuffer.

I will say back when the PS2 launched, I couldn't find one.  We had a friendly Toys R Us in the neighborhood.  So each day before I left work I called to see if more had come in.   After about two weeks of trying, they said yeah, we just got a shipment in.  I headed over and got the second of ten units in the shipment.  My friend whom I called on the way there got number five.  It can work.

Another 10/10 with a couple of guesses.   Probably not really a spoiler but
Spoiler for Hiden:
Some reports now say the PS2 has topped 100 million units sold as well.

Cool.  Is this one of those all expenses paid trips?  We certainly know you won't be afraid to give them your opinion.  :wink:
