2841  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.

Hmm... well that sucks... I pass the minimum requirements.

I don't need more temptation right now.   biggrin

Excellent!  I look forward to graduating sometime in 2008 or so.  With a much lower GPA I must say.   Cool
2844  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.
2845  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>
2846  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.
2847  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?
2848  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.
2849  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
2850  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.
2851  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.
2852  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)
2853  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.
2854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: April 19, 2006, 07:55:20 PM
<drools>

Yeah I can't wait for this one.
2855  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 woes... on: April 19, 2006, 05:34:40 AM
yeah, I would have gotten the extended warrantee at gamestop... except that I would be lucky to have gotten my 360 by now if I'd waited.
2856  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 woes... on: April 19, 2006, 02:46:37 AM
Depward: the thought crossed my mind.  Then I looked at my bank balance  smile

Calvin: It's under the 90 day warrantee that they give you.  Otherwise I expect it would be costing me money to have it fixed.

I'm really really tempted to pick up the extended warrantee this time... except that so far I haven't made it past the 90 day mark.   Cool
2857  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 woes... on: April 18, 2006, 08:40:40 PM
Well since my second 360 gave up the ghost on sunday, I called xbox support and they said they'd send a box out to me.  No problems.  I expected it would be like the first time I had problems: next day get box, send box back, get replacement in 3 days or so.

Unfortunately MS has changed their policy now.  They use standard shipping, which means I won't get the box until thursday or friday.  They said to expect about 10 days from the time I send the box back before I get the 360 back.

So.  Here I am.  No 360 for the next 2 1/2 weeks.  <sigh>  If I'd realized how long it was going to take I would have gladly paid the 15-16 bucks to send it faster.

I'm glad they're fixing it for free.  Since it shouldn't have broken inside 2 months in the first place, I'm a little bitter about the time lapse.  

I'd guess that the priority shipping was costing them too much, especially now that the 'shortage' is finally over.

Ah well.  Nothing I can do about it for the moment.
2858  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (4/17) on: April 18, 2006, 05:27:31 PM
Don't know about southpark, but springfields are all over the place <g> I live in Springfield Mo. for example.
2859  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 16, 2006, 03:36:22 PM
Yeah, this is my second system.  frown  Time to call and find out if its still under warrantee.

Okay, just got off the phone with MS.  They're sending me a box.  <sigh>  I can't decide if I want to scream/cry/destroy things at the moment.  So I think I'll go with sleeping.
2860  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 16, 2006, 01:54:59 PM
You can't host your own games, but you can request a new server... so if one person did that then invited/had everyone join them, we should be able to get at least a few of us together.

Had some weird thing happen.  Was playing happily online, and then all of the sudden the screen goes dark.  No response from the 360, no sound in headsets.  Rebooted and checked the people I had been playing with, and none of them were on either.  Went back in and tried to start my own game.  Got to the game... 5 seconds later black screen.  

Really not sure what's up with this.

Edit: Okay... now I'm thinking that my 360 has decided to croak on me.  I can play for a few minutes... then there's a small 'pop' sound and it gets these nice intermittent vertical lines across the screen.  I hope that MS gave me a 90 day warrantee with this 360 they sent me... cause I'm looking at needing a repair/replacement again.
2861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Just Finished Kameo on: April 16, 2006, 02:38:22 AM
Depward:  Now you and Moriarty should play the online co-op stuff together.  I'm not that good as that type of game so she's been lacking a partner to go through them.
2862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 15, 2006, 02:32:49 AM
Playing the capture the flag maps can be very confined and fast paced.  On the conquest maps you can go for a while without seeing anyone.  During a CTF map you rarely go 30 seconds without seeing/shooting/being shot by someone.  Sometimes all at once.

Edit:  Friday turned out to be a day off from gaming.  Hoping to get some time in this afternoon/evening.  Exactly when depends heavily on when I actually get to sleep this morning.  Gotta love the midnite to 8am shifts.
2863  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 14, 2006, 11:31:37 PM
Unfortunately you can't host a game from what I've seen.  You can do the clan games though.  No idea how that works yet.  I think we'd need at least 4-6 people on to make it happen.

In the meantime, just joining games in progress should work pretty well.  Especially if the first person does a search for low population games to ensure enough room for everyone.
2864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 14, 2006, 08:37:26 AM
Played some online today.  Was pretty good.  Played more of the campaign and am currently at a loss.  

I defend a trainstation from attack.  No problem.  Then the opposition sends a train full of explosives at the station at high speed.  I get 4 guys spread along a track with 50 cal. machineguns.  Then the train doesn't die.  Not sure what the deal is.

Edit: Hate it when I get stuck somewhere that no one does.  <mutters>

Quote from: "TheMissingLink"
If a good number of GT'ers grab this sucker and intend on playing it - and if matchmaking is easy enough to have a group of 8 people or whatever join a game together, then I'm most likely game.  I'm looking for a somewhat faster shooter to complement GRAW.


I'll have to experiment a bit to make sure, but I'm expecting that if one of us hosts a game and then invites everyone else... that should be all the matchmaking necessary.

Yeah, Jarrodhk sent me a msg last night  over live.  My willpower is fading.  If I can play MP with GT/OO folks this will be a keeper.  


Damn I feel my willpower fading....sigh


Hah!  If I give in, you must also suffer!
2867  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 13, 2006, 06:34:13 AM
Not sure... I never actually played the demo.  I'm having fun with the single player campaign at the moment.  Can't say I enjoy flying an unarmed recon chopper though.  The controls are pretty nice for the choppers at least.  Vehicle controls work pretty well also.

Looking forward to getting together with people and playing online.  I'm a bit hesitant to go into random servers though.

Edit: I played the campaign and a few of the challenges for about 7 hours. (I love school holidays)  Fun, although I am not as skilled as I would like.  Finally gave up on my current mission for the night as I was getting very frustrated.

Nice thing, all that time, no crashes, no lockups, etc.  After playing Graw and Oblivion, both of which I love, and suffering many lock-ups etc. it was nice to just play without worries.

I really like the weapons so far, although I wouldn't trust me with an RPG anytime soon  :oops: Shotguns are fun... kinda hope that Graw decides to add some in at some point.

If the game had split screen and/or co-op I would be even happier with it.  As it is I'll just have to wait to play with you guys online.
2868  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 13, 2006, 04:06:40 AM
Yep... count me into the suckage.  That sniper mission was really starting to make me feel incompetent.
2869  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ubisoft dumps Starforce on: April 13, 2006, 01:51:53 AM
Bill Harris has an interesting comment on this.  He wonders if they are merely switching to the new scheme available from the creators of starforce.

<fights temptation>  Dang it... I really don't need another game right now...

On the other hand I am hungry and should go get food anyway...

I did not cry!  That was Moriarty!

She was completely inconsoleable... and promptly shot 3 teammates because of it.

Or was it me that shot 3 teammates.... heck I don't remember... there was shooting and dying... and the crying...
2873  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 09, 2006, 03:16:48 AM
Another fun night guys!  Sorry about the friendly fires... I blame the day spent training.
2874  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 08, 2006, 10:10:03 PM
No guilt trip intended.  Just an observation.

That certain people don't play much at the moment...

 :wink:
2875  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 08, 2006, 02:39:25 PM
Couldn't tell you... only had 5 or 6 at the most on lately.

 Cool

There are heal other spells in the game.   Can also use these (in theory) to keep NPCs in quests alive.

Haven't seen it yet... I'm thinking we might as well add a day to any date they give out for putting something up.

 smile
2879  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 06, 2006, 03:39:52 PM
Yeah, we've been through the campaign missions a lot.  If we can get 6-8 people on again I have every intention of doing some team modes.

Of course the 'last stand at the old town' type is also fun <g>
2880  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 06, 2006, 05:22:22 AM
No worries.  We'll be playing again.... soon....  Cool
