2841  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / E3 killed my 360 on: May 11, 2006, 11:20:50 PM
They haven't wanted the HD either of the times I've had to send mine back.  The problem you're having sounds exactly like the one my second 360 had...

Should take about 2 1/2 weeks or so total from when you call them to get it back.  (or a replacement)

I haven't quite mastered reading textbooks while playing Graw.  would make my life simpler if I could though.

Since I was awake anyway, I downloaded the things I was interested in between 4am and 5am this morning.  Everything went pretty quickly.  

Insomnia has its uses I guess.   :lol:

Yeah I've been eyeballing the trailer all day.  Unfortunately since I can't actually download anything at the moment, eyeballing is all I have been able to do.

On one hand I hope that they release this soon as possible.  On the other hand... I have finals next week and don't need help avoiding studying... :oops:

No way I can afford that.  Even if Sony manages to have something really good for launch games... not happening.

I'm pretty sure you get a refurbished unit.  My first was a launch box.  My second was made in january, the third was made in december... so I assume refurb.  There is an extended warranty you can get from MS.  So far mine haven't lasted past 90 days yet.

didn't we decide he sounds more like Samuel L. Jackson?


YAYYYYY somebody finally wants to GRAW with me....T_T  i'm so happy i could shoot something.

i'll be bored most of the weekend, at least in the evenings.  during the day-ish stuff, i have to work on an essay and a take-home stats test.

BUT THEN!  ahhhh, then, my friends, i will go back to shooting many, many things.  (and we found out thursday that i am absolutely terrible with the MRC...i don't seem to be able to handle a gun that i have to stop and aim.)


Samuel L. Jackson... yeah that's right.  Couldn't think of the name off the top of my head.

Calvin: bummer, we'll miss ya man.  I've been less than impressed with the mp options I've heard about so far, but I'm waiting on first hand accounts.  Also, my computer, specifically vidcard, aren't up to playing the pc version.  And I'm broke.  Soo... no PC graw for me.
2853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / When your 360 breaks... on: May 06, 2006, 01:25:49 AM
Originally they were doing next day air for all of the swapping.  Now they've changed to 3 day ups ground.   Thus it takes quite a bit longer.  Took about 2-2 1/2 weeks from when I called them until I got my replacement this time.
2854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlezone PSP?! on: May 05, 2006, 06:38:03 PM
Quote from: "Luke"
Has anyone even confirmed that this is an update/port of the PC Battlezone title?  Everything I've read suggests it's a remake of the 80s arcade vector graphics affair, not the cool, late 90s PC game.

Quote
Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR) today announced the development of BattleZone for the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system, a modern update to the 1980 classic arcade game. BattleZone immerses players in an interactive world with relentless onslaughts of quick, action-oriented battles.

Honestly I'm just as excited about a remake of the arcade game as the PC game.  I remember playing the arcade game back in the 80's.  Nostalgia if nothing else  Tongue
2855  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ghost Recon.... on: May 05, 2006, 03:37:04 PM
Good deal.  I'm on duty this weekend so I'm not going anywhere out of the building.  Plenty of time to play some games.  Haven't heard Soulchilde aka "James Earl Jones" in the headset for a while  Cool

MrDuck:  I'll add you to the list.

Ron: Excellent.  I'm working on campus all summer so I'll have a good deal of free time and a nice low usage network to play on.

aha!  I knew this thread was lying around somewhere...  played some co-op elimination last night, and went through the missions again for fun.  Love the game.

Anyone?  Anyone?  beuller?

Looking to get some MP Graw going on.  Moriarty feels sad that no one wants to play...

On now... 8:15ish central time.  Stay on for a while at least.

mmo?  I'm out then  Cool   I love playing games multi with the guys/girls here and on OO, but other than that I prefer to avoid other people for the most part.  I get enough interaction with people during my job as an RA.

More on topic... Yay Shadowrun!
2861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Attention female gamers! Atari wants to hear your opinions! on: May 04, 2006, 08:14:30 PM

2862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox Live Marketplace To Be Bombarded By E3 Content on: May 02, 2006, 10:16:57 PM
The service is down for maintinance.  If you go to the xbox.com page it says it in several different languages.  I went and checked when I got booted off of the service early this morning.

Oddly enough, right as I was typing that lightning struck nearby...
2864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 [360] on: April 30, 2006, 06:47:29 PM
The sniper mission is annoying for a couple of reasons.  Firstly, there are occasions when the remaining sniper for a wave gets stuck inside a building.   That's pretty rare.  That is also the first mission where hot swapping between you 4 different personnel is really important.  Sometimes I still ended up having to get down off of the buildings and search around for the last couple of enemies.  The gps (why gps?) is useful for that.

All in all I enjoy the game, the multi more than the single player, however I really prefer to have at least one person I know playing as well.  Takes the game to a different level.  

Besides, I'm not that good at it.  Cool

Thinking about picking up the pc version, but I have a horrible vidcard and no money to upgrade it.
2865  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 [360] on: April 30, 2006, 05:07:30 AM
Yeah, kind of figured that people had gotten sidetracked with other games.

Poor timing on the dead xbox thing.   :lol:
2866  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 [360] on: April 30, 2006, 01:07:08 AM
So I enjoy the game.  However, 2 weeks off from playing has left me woefully unpracticed.  Nothing like unloading full clips everywhere but into your target.

On a brighter note, I did manage to kill several tanks today, including one very nice rocket-launcher kill as I danced frantically around.  The others were C4 kills.  Very satisfying to sneak up on a tank while it is shooting at your teammates and plant the C4 on it.

So is anyone still playing/want to play?
2867  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion-Tips , Advice and Help-Spoilerific on: April 28, 2006, 08:35:25 PM
<sigh> Got my 360 back and started playing Oblivion again.  Unfortunately I seem to have gotten a bugged quest with my ranger character.

 I get sent on the Mystery of Harlun's Watch quest.  When I explore the cave for evidence, the body that is supposed to be there is missing.  I have looked all around the green marker with no luck.  Either the body never got spawned, or it is spawned under the world.  I tried reloading a save from a couple of quests back, but when I got there again, same problem.

Really sucks.
2868  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's coming and I can't wait! [Ghost Recon] on: April 25, 2006, 02:36:13 PM
Hmm... well that sucks... I pass the minimum requirements.

I don't need more temptation right now.   biggrin

2870  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's your number one gaming system right now? on: April 23, 2006, 10:39:37 PM
Voted 360, but since it is somewhere between here and the repair center in Texas I've been playing mostly PS2 and GalCiv2 for the last week.
2871  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Wow, I hated gamespot and EB before but now I really do... on: April 22, 2006, 12:41:58 PM
One of the big reasons I quit working at Gamestop fairly quickly.  I hated being required to ask stupid questions of people all of the time.  That and the insane magazine/trade-in/reserve numbers.  I just wanted to help people find games and do the usual customer service stuff.

Unfortunately the usual customer service stuff seemed to consist of things I would not like as a customer <G>
2872  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What will you be playing this weekend? on: April 22, 2006, 02:08:24 AM
Well I eyeballed MS saga and Warship Gunner 2.... and picked up Grandia 3.

I figure no matter how far I get into it, Moriarty will play through at least once.  If she likes it more like 5 times.
2873  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What will you be playing this weekend? on: April 21, 2006, 07:18:56 PM
Thanks Depward.  I've heard good things about it from other people.  I've just been thoroughly distracted by the 360 for the last several months and haven't much touched the PS2.  (that and having to send It in for repairs too)

Zarkon:  Nope, haven't picked it up yet.  I really enjoyed the first one, and still have fun with the Commander version as well.  Given that, will the review be likely to sway me away from buying?
2874  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What will you be playing this weekend? on: April 21, 2006, 06:18:41 PM
So how is Romancing Saga?  I'm feeling the desire to pick up a new game to tide me over until my 360 gets back.  

Of course Warship Gunner 2 is really tempting as well.

If I don't pick something new up I'll probably play some Starwars Battlefront 2.  Maybe some Front Mission 4.

Edit:  Oooh... maybe I'll get lucky and see a copy of Steel Battalions with the controller... that would most likely destroy my willpower right now.
2875  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: April 21, 2006, 12:43:42 AM
Wonder if the online play will support split-screen.  Moriarty and I are both avid mech fans... would be mildly sad if we had to trade off while playing... not that it would stop us I'm sure.   Tongue
2876  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's coming and I can't wait! [Ghost Recon] on: April 20, 2006, 06:50:39 PM
Huh.. so it was.  Didn't see that as I scanned the page.  

Well unless I come up with 200 dollars from somewhere I won't be playing this one.
2877  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's coming and I can't wait! [Ghost Recon] on: April 20, 2006, 04:39:30 PM
Hmm... what are the system requirements for this?  After having so much fun with the 360 version I might be interested in picking this up as well.  However my system is aging and I don't have the money to upgrade anytime soon.
2878  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famitsu] - Game Ratings for the month on: April 20, 2006, 04:37:56 PM
A Nights game?  Ah crap, don't let Moriarty see that.  I'm not really planning on picking up the Revolution, but I could be swayed... (or forced at knife/m60 point)
2879  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 woes... on: April 20, 2006, 04:34:49 PM
That's good to know.  So far I haven't had problems with my harddrive <crosses fingers> but I would hate to lose any purchased items.

Got my box this morning (finally, go UPS ground) so I'll be packing the 360 up and sending it off here shortly.  Hopefully it won't actually take 10 days to get it (or its replacement) back.  I'm really missing being able to play online with you guys.

At least I can watch the friends list from Starwars Battlefront II.  If anyone is particularly inclined we could play that <G>

Edit: <sigh> I have so many games to play other than the 360 ones, but of course the ones I really want to play right now are all 360 games.  This is likely to be the longest 10 days of my recent life.
2880  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: April 19, 2006, 07:55:20 PM

Yeah I can't wait for this one.
