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.
2922  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.

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.
2924  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!
2927  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.
2928  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!
2929  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:

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.

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!
2933  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.
2934  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.
2935  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>
2936  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 22, 2006, 06:39:02 AM
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.
2937  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 22, 2006, 03:18:03 AM
Should have beat her senseless with barehands....  but I suppose that would still be assault.... darn guards!

 :twisted:
2938  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 21, 2006, 06:37:05 PM
Wow... got my blade skill up over 10... I'm still rated a novice, but now I can chain up to 3 slashes in a row, and occasionally do an overhand swing.  Before I was just able to do a single slow attack.

Back to doing my impression of a ginzu blender on goblins.

I have aquired my copy!  Yay!  Of course I was up all night and am really sleepy right now... so I should wait to play until I rest.

Or... I could drink a coke and play now!
2940  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Live... on: March 21, 2006, 11:53:25 AM
Hmm... got kicked off of live, and now I can't log back in.  Tested the connection and it fails on the MTU test, says that the connection to the diagnostic server timed out.  

Wondering if this is something to do with the campus network.  Or if its a live issue.

<mutters>

Edit: yeah... so theres this thing called the internet and you can find out information on it apparently.  

Checked the xbox homepage, theres a scheduled matainance going on right now.

/feels slightly dense
2941  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 20, 2006, 06:08:08 AM
Definitely fun times!  

And now we know who keeps killing gaming trend...

<stares at depward tml and rincewind>

Edit: Was a good time with papa smurf and knightshade this morning.  We were doing co-op territories with infinite respawns.  

I think we managed to get 377 kills on the last try.  Need to get a group of 4 or 5 going on those.
2942  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Oblivion - GOLD - Ships/In Stores 3/20!!! on: March 18, 2006, 05:04:28 AM
note to self:  stop watching oblivion movies... making the wait much less bearable.
2943  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 18, 2006, 02:10:20 AM
Some more 'bah'... stuck working at the desk until midnite.  Then I have to be up around 7 to make sure everyone is out of the building.  So, no graw for me tonight.  

Unless I were to do something silly like stay up until 2am playing.

But of course I wouldn't do that.

Nah... that would be a bad idea... I need sleep.

Or do I?  Cool
2944  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 17, 2006, 10:49:13 PM
LOL!  Somehow I think ResLife would not be pleased with that type of 'work'  

 Tongue
2945  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 17, 2006, 09:51:08 PM
Bah!  Sounds like you guys had fun last night.  I wanted to play, but had various obligations of the 'keep my paid room and board' variety to take care of.
2946  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 17, 2006, 02:13:00 PM
wait wait wait.... how do you spell that again???

<stares at the screen intently>

 :lol:
2947  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 17, 2006, 07:00:48 AM
Played some 4 player split-screen tonight.  Was okay.  Noticed a little bit of lag to the game.  Didn't try it online though.
2948  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where are you from?? (Time for one of these threads) on: March 17, 2006, 06:02:30 AM
Middle'ish of missouri.  Springfield.  Spend some time in Jefferson City and Columbia MO as well.
2949  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Blazing Angels - Mar.24th on: March 17, 2006, 05:58:55 AM
They would have to seriously screw it up for me not to buy it.  Moriarty and I have racked up innumerable hours playing the dynasty warriors series.
2950  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Geometry Wars rawks on: March 17, 2006, 05:57:07 AM
I've gotten 818k... but that was a while ago.  I haven't mustered up the motivation to play as often as needed to build up to that level of play again.
2951  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Blazing Angels - Mar.24th on: March 16, 2006, 08:26:48 PM
<blink blink> Blazing Angels??  crap.  have oblivion pre-ordered and dynasty warriors 5:empires pre-ordered.  don't have anything left to trade.

Hmm... this will bear thinking on.
2952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GR:AW Multiplayer on: March 15, 2006, 09:20:21 PM
<continues to fight the addiction> I mean really, it isn't like it's a majors class or something.  

Oh yeah.  It is.  


In all seriousness.  If I can make on, I'll be playing some tonight.  

<memo to me, add booner to the friends list>
2953  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 15, 2006, 09:12:40 PM
Chaz: Definitely get in with some of the GT or OO people.  Everyone I've played with has been a blast <no pun> to have in the game.

We've been doing mostly co-op when I've been on, but I'm sure we can do some team stuff, especially if we have 8 people on like we did last night.

<mutters> I really want to play tonight... but I HAVE to get this paper done for tomorrow.

Edit: Coopasonic, join US!!!
2954  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 15, 2006, 02:51:49 PM
Soulchilde:  Yeah thats the one drawback of the co-op side right now.  The variety is a little on the slim side.  

With 8 people we can probably do a little team play to break up the routine.  I'm going to try and figure out what map has the attack chopper on it so we can mess with that.  (besides I want the 100 choppers killed achievement)

Quote from: "Turtle"
So, does M often feel uncomfortable when playing online?

Thinking about it now and the kind of people I've played with, I think I've answered my own question.  She probably gets quite a few "OMG!  UR a GRL?" from gaming in text, but when that's said in a squeeky voice through your headset it might be enough to make you want to disconnect right there.
.


I probably chose the wrong word with 'uncomfortable'  more properly, she just doesn't have nearly as much, if any, fun with those kinds of people.

Edit: Booner: hmm... think I've neglected you on my friends list.  I'll fix that as soon as I finish this paper tonight... or during a 'break'  Cool

TML:  Yeah I know exactly what you mean.  The UAV spoils the crap out of you if you aren't careful.
2956  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 15, 2006, 06:20:44 AM
Was a blast playing with you guys!  Even when the grenades flew the wrong direction ninja

Really appreciate people who can accept a female gamer without making her feel uncomfortable.

You too? Wow, we must live pretty close to eachother!


Springfield MO.  From what I heard last night we had 4 or 5 tornados touch down around the area.  I was hoping that the early morning classes might be cancelled, but no luck with that  :lol:

Nothing like being stuck in a hallway with 70odd people for an hour at a time at 1 in the morning  :wink:
2958  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GR:AW Multiplayer on: March 13, 2006, 05:20:58 AM
Good thing that we stopped playing when we did tonight Turtle.  About 3 minutes later the tornado sirens cut loose here and we had to head down to the ground floor!

Had fun, even if I apparently forgot to take off the bullet magnet I was wearing.
2959  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GR:AW Multiplayer on: March 12, 2006, 09:03:53 AM
Just wanted to say that we had a good time tonight playing some co-op with Sparhawk.  Good times.
2960  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / psp memory stick question on: March 12, 2006, 01:01:59 AM
good quality?  I would say 1...

I have equilibrium on my 512 stick, but that's at a lower quality.  Depending on your threshold I would think you could get 2 or 3.
