2921  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 13, 2006, 01:01:43 AM
Well crap.  Fear my lack of willpower.  Heading out to pick it up.
2922  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Battlefield 2- Who's getting it.? on: April 13, 2006, 12:39:42 AM
<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...
2923  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [360] GRAW this weekend? (redux) on: April 10, 2006, 08:12:36 PM
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...

Another fun night guys!  Sorry about the friendly fires... I blame the day spent training.
2925  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:
2926  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
2927  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: April 07, 2006, 04:58:36 PM
There are heal other spells in the game.   Can also use these (in theory) to keep NPCs in quests alive.
2928  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox360] Street Fighter 2 showing up on XBLA today?!? on: April 07, 2006, 04:56:15 PM
10 or 15 dollars for live capable Street Fighter II... I Will pay that.

2929  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox360] Street Fighter 2 showing up on XBLA today?!? on: April 06, 2006, 10:36:08 PM
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
2930  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>
2931  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
2932  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - Horse Armor "Mod" Poll on: April 05, 2006, 08:46:57 PM
I won't pick the horse mod up... but I am intrigued by the other two they are working on.  Mainly because it sounds like there is a quest, or quests, that go along with them.
2933  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Login Problems on: April 05, 2006, 07:18:54 PM
Check at the bottom of the page when you get to the forums.  The box should be down there along with blanks for your name/password.

This confused me a bit too.
2934  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [360] GRAW this weekend? (redux) on: April 05, 2006, 07:17:22 PM
Heh... not always on...

Saturday evening should be okay with me.  After 6ish Central.  I've got training all day before that.  Not sure what Moriarty has going on yet.
2935  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Super Mario blocks <> bombs? on: April 05, 2006, 03:19:00 AM
I know.
2936  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 04, 2006, 07:14:38 AM
Glad to have you!  I'm not sure how many times we've run the missions... but I have gotten through all four of them by myself.

Made some progress towards the heavy achievement.  10k kills will be mine!!
2937  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 04, 2006, 02:30:44 AM
Yeah.  I was starting to wonder if I would be able to write a nice little essay on how to get killed 30 seconds into the mission.
2938  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 04, 2006, 12:39:26 AM
Merian says she doesn't shoot people with sniper rifles, it only happens with the m-60... and she'd be using the sniping rifle on the docks  Cool

We should be good for an hour or so around that time Dimmona.  

Faide: I'll add you to the list.  Jarrodhk is mine.

Hepcat: will definitely throw you invites when we see you.

Soulchilde, arkon, papa, merian, and I played a bit earlier before everyone had to break off to do other things... and I was forcibly ejected from the 360 so merian could play oblivion.

 :lol:
2939  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Super Mario blocks <> bombs? on: April 03, 2006, 09:09:41 PM
Tell that to Moriarty... after you take the M-60 out of her hands... and probably ought to hide the sniper rifle as well.   :lol:
2940  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 03, 2006, 09:04:55 PM
Would help a bit if they would give some kind of idea about the timeline for the rest of the co-op campaign.  I'm curious as to what the plan is for that.

Looking at the first oblivion mod, I won't pay for that, however for a set of co-op missions in Graw I would most definitely pony up for 200 pts.  Assuming they are the same level of quality as the first four.  Preferrably with all new maps as well.
2941  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] First Oblivion Mod up on Live on: April 03, 2006, 09:00:45 PM
I like the idea that they are offering mods for the 360.  However, as others have said, no way I'm paying money, especially 2.50, for a simple texture.

Honestly, if they charged 20 pts, or 50 pts I would probably go ahead and do it.  But, I want more actual content before I cough up the dough.

That said, if down the road they do a compilation of several mods for say... 200-400 pts.  I would consider that worthwhile.
2942  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 03, 2006, 05:53:06 AM
Played some Graw this evening.  After I remembered that you cannot jump... and managed to supress the urge to try and loot every crate I saw, it was a lot of fun.  Even if the three of us were royally sucking it up to begin with.
2943  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ninja Gaiden Black on the 360 on: April 03, 2006, 05:35:17 AM
If only they would patch in achievements too... :twisted:
2944  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Sale at Fry's thru 4/04 - Updated on: April 01, 2006, 11:05:32 PM
Huh.  I've enjoyed the little I played of it so far.  Really wish they had used more of the 360's potential, but its a solid game for me and moriarty regardless.

Mind you they had better do something more with the next title... it will not be a day one purchase.  Preferably they could put out samurai warriors 2 on the 360... that would be nice
2945  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 31, 2006, 08:56:19 PM
I'll agree with the mountain lions... ouch.

I know that if I get into a fight with one I'm going to be using some potions.
2946  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [360] GRAW Saturday 4/1 at 4PM (central) on: March 29, 2006, 09:24:31 PM
bah, have a mandatory 'retreat' day on saturday.  otherwise I would love to play.  Depending on when we get back I will probably be very much in the mood to shoot people.

Edit: I have found out that we should be done around 5ish. (central) so if people are still playing I would love to jump in then.
2947  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 29, 2006, 09:21:40 PM
I found the going a bit rougher with my Hand-to-Hand character.  At times it feels nearly impossible to get anywhere against certain monsters.  At the same time I have immense fun fighting things like the ogres.

Which is why I have learned to love the difficulty slider.  If I'm feeling like I'm running full speed into a brick wall I adjust the slider down a bit... when things even out I up it some.

This doesn't address the 'everyone has super gear' problem, but it keeps me from quitting out of frustration with the combat.
2948  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (3/27) on: March 27, 2006, 07:28:00 PM
DW5 for the 360... only because it's co-op and I already pre-ordered it.  Otherwise Ghost recon and oblivion continue to occupy far more than their share of my time.

I need help.  I was sent from Chorrol to Leyawiin to do a Figther's Guild Quest.  So I need to find 5 ectoplasm and I know they drop from ghost, but I'm not given a location to get the ectoplasm.  So can someone direct me to a dungeon with a bunch of Ghost?

i found a group of ghosts in the basement of the temple in Bruma...at least 4-5 of them there Cool

Also visit any of the ruins in the world (the one where you need to collect the 10 something for that guy in the Imperial City). They're usually filled with the living-challenged dead.


If you're still having problems finding ectoplasm, don't forget to check the various alchemists.  They frequently have one or two and buying them counts the same as 'finding' them off of ghosts.

How about free pie and chips?  Its like pie, with chips!
2951  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 26, 2006, 08:49:04 PM
For me, the marksman character was/is almost too easy in places.  It helps that I have a really high speed stat though.
2952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 26, 2006, 07:22:39 PM
This is true... however she can't cover my six in oblivion!
2953  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 26, 2006, 05:27:24 PM
Just had a nice little 'Han Solo' moment.

I'm chasing after this lone opponent whom I've just about beaten down... turn a corner and see about 6 other opponents grouped together.  Whoops!  I turn and run back the way I came at top speed, with the sound of a drawing sword behind me.

I get to a defensible spot and turn to fight... and see one guy.  Apparently the rest of group were from earlier fighting.  I.e. already had broken morale  :lol:
2954  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Gamingtrend dying, or we are all just on a break? on: March 26, 2006, 04:53:46 PM
Playing oblivion and graw during most all of my waking moments for the last week definitely lowered my posting average....

no... wait... I don't post that often anyway  biggrin

1) Is there a way to place a marker on the map and then label it?  Otherwise, what's the point of having markers on the map?

2) Does turn undead do any damage or does it just make them run away?

3) Is it possible to rest in the wilderness or only in towns?  I reached a new level and it advised me to rest, but I was in a cave and didn't want to go back to town.


1) no way to label them that I know about.  I just use the markers to guide me when hunting for a cave or whatever for the first time.

2) haven't used the spell, but I think it only makes them run.  Unless you make your own version that does damage as well.

3)you can rest in the wilderness/dungeons if you find a bedroll, and have no enemies around.
2956  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 26, 2006, 04:47:45 PM
Hehe... the other reason for a renewed interest in Graw is Moriarty will be back on campus here in about an hour or so  Cool

Always more fun with the sniper woman on your side!
2957  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 26, 2006, 12:31:23 PM
Ah... now that I've put 40+ hours into oblivion on two different characters, I find myself in the mood to do some shooting sometime soon.

We should have some GRAW action this week.
2958  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 24, 2006, 02:05:00 PM
Ninroots can be found around the edges of water... lakes, ponds, etc.  I've found 14 or so I think.  I've discovered that neat as night vision sounds, I really don't like the blue tinge to everything... hurts my eyes.

For combat difficulty... don't forget there's a slider that you can adjust.  Not sure exactly what it changes since I haven't actually used it yet.
2959  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 23, 2006, 09:25:23 AM
There's just a certain feeling of satisfaction from nailing a goblin with a power attack and watching them bounce off a wooden support post while their weapon and shield go flying.

<sighs>

Got a quest from the fighters guild.  Lets just say I like their take on the rat quest.

Edit: Also playing a rangerish character.  I am really enjoying shooting things, especially from sneak mode.  I shoot a deer as it was running down a slope, killed it, when it stopped rolling its neck was rather obviously broken.

For some reason looking at a downed opponent and seeing exactly where the arrows went is quite satisfying.  I don't particularly recommend using regular arrows vs. undead though.
