Played some 4 player split-screen tonight.  Was okay.  Noticed a little bit of lag to the game.  Didn't try it online though.
2922  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.

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.

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.
2925  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.
2926  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>
2927  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!!!
2928  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.
2930  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:
2932  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.
2933  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.
2934  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.

Quote from: "Destructor"
Unplayable. The game goes from normal framerate to 'dear lord the world is running like you have a rapid fire pause button' to normal again with no warning or reason whatsoever.

In a game that requires perfect timing, you have none of that thanks to poor emulation issues.


Seconded.  Quickest way to lose any enjoyment in a superfast paced game like Ninja Gaiden is to have uneven framerates.

I've also reached a the first mission where I have to go alone at night, and I can't get past this one part.  It doesn't help that the cross comm is buggered in the mission and I have no other support assets.  Not to mention my current save I'm at red health.


There are jammer units by your targets in that one.  They can be hard to see through the interference though.  I found switching between using the night vision and having it off to be useful... it was much easier for me to track muzzle flashes without the night vision.
2937  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GR:AW Multiplayer on: March 11, 2006, 06:34:28 AM
Had fun while I and Lynk could play.  Unfortunately we started getting booted and we not able to join the server again.  <shrug> I blame the campus network.
2938  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 09, 2006, 11:09:40 PM
Haven't played any online yet .  Have had a lot of fun playing split-screen so far though.
2939  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter Impressions Thread on: March 09, 2006, 05:52:20 AM
I've blown my whole team up with a grenade once.  once.

So far only played co-op split-screen.  The first co-op campaign map is pretty fun.  We finally beat it after a number of tries.  I think I've been playing way too many games where you can take multiple hits before dying.  My cover reflex really needs some work.
2940  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 08, 2006, 11:16:24 PM
Jarrodhk as my gamertag... hoping to be on some tonight.
2941  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 08, 2006, 09:17:32 PM
Have my copy... later tonight will actually have time to mess with it.
2942  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: March 08, 2006, 04:15:59 AM
co-op is why I'm picking it up!  

Late tomorrow...

After I'm done with everything...

<sigh>

It's going to be a long day.
2943  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GRAW - Out Tomorrow in Many Stores on: March 07, 2006, 09:15:26 PM
Oh yeah.  Just made the connection that Oblivion comes out during my spring break.  Order some pizza... lay in some drinks... never leave the room.
2944  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GRAW - Out Tomorrow in Many Stores on: March 07, 2006, 04:52:58 PM
Bah.  My local gamestop says the preorders will be in tomorrow.... may be time to go cruise Target/Best Buy/Walmart/EB...

Living in the middle of the country sucks sometimes  Cool
2945  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Outfit Demo is up on Live! on: March 06, 2006, 06:37:22 PM
Heh.  Was going to post this as well.  Saw you online, saw you were downloading from the marketplace so I knew something new was on  :lol:
2946  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GRAW is Gold on: March 02, 2006, 01:41:27 PM
Quick question:  I didn't see this answered the articles I've read.  Can you play the co-op split-screen?  Or is it only through live?

This makes a big difference in whether or not I get the game.
2947  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360]Geometry Wars Ownage video (16+million pts) on: February 17, 2006, 10:01:51 PM
Just sent my 360 in to be repaired.  Now I REALLY want to play geometry wars.

Or Full Auto.

Bah.
2948  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DOA4 patch...any word? on: February 11, 2006, 01:08:44 PM
Haven't heard anything about a specific patch for DOA4, however they did have the dashboard patch recently.  I seem to recall there being something in there about changing the way profiles were loaded and whether or not saves were overwritten.

I've been nailed by the bug twice now... haven't had any problems since the dashboard update though <crosses fingers>.  Also have made it a point to never ever change the first player controller profile while playing the game.  We're (friends and I) thinking that may have been the culprit the last time.

I really have much fun with the game.  Was playing some 2 on 1 versus tag this evening before having to work.  It's a very different experience having to adjust for not only the 2 different characters, but 2 different play styles.
2949  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / (360) Good news about GR Advanced Warfighter's co-op play. on: February 11, 2006, 11:22:25 AM
I had zero interest in this title until I read the word 'co-op'.  I am now interested and will have to look into it a bit more.
2950  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS Two problem (slimline) on: February 11, 2006, 12:15:17 AM
Talked with SCEA and I'm sending the console in to them to be repaired.  I have to pay shipping to them but that is all.

Fun times.  I would be more upset if I didn't know several other people with PS2's.   Not to mention a PC with games and a 360.  


Oh well, could be worse.
2951  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS Two problem (slimline) on: February 10, 2006, 07:15:23 AM
Looked at the limited warranty... says 1 year defects in material and workmanship... refusing to read games in under 6 months seems to qualify to me.  Guess Sony's view on it is the important one though.
2952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS Two problem (slimline) on: February 10, 2006, 02:08:34 AM
Hmm... that's not encouraging.  It should still be under warranty with Sony... got it in September.  Guess I'll be giving them a call tomorrow after classes.
2953  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS Two problem (slimline) on: February 10, 2006, 12:48:21 AM
So does anyone know if the PSTwo suffers the same calibration problems that the orginal PS2 did?

My PSTwo has decided that it only likes movie/tv DVDs and will not read any of the games I have.  Even a blue disc.  It will play music CD's though.

I'm confused now.  This is the reason I got a PsTwo to begin with.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edited to specify the problem is with a slimline.
2954  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New GalCiv2 preview with screenshots of near final build on: February 03, 2006, 04:01:09 PM
Found out last night that although the beta is officially over, you can still download the last beta version to play.

Then I found out that I have no clue how to do well in this game.
2955  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New GalCiv2 preview with screenshots of near final build on: January 29, 2006, 10:40:37 AM
Anyone know if you pre-order, do you still get to play with the beta version of the game?
2956  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Or Alive 4 - Time to bring it! on: January 03, 2006, 12:08:22 AM
27 in survival is better than I've managed to do yet!  Survival mode seems to scale the AI based on a combination of points and number of opponents defeated.  Since I tend to favor characters who slam foes repeatedly into the walls....  I end up fighting the higher AI very quickly.  It's rare that I get more than 8 KO's.

Glad to hear that you are getting it figured out.   The 'click' was something that Ninja Gaiden had as well.  After a few hours into it, everything just fell into place and I really started having fun.
2957  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 problem... on: January 03, 2006, 12:01:09 AM
Something I've been curious about since I may have to send my 360 in to get it to read DVD's without freezing:  When you send the 360 back, do you send the hard drive with it?

I guess it doesn't really matter... don't know anyone else with a 360 right now.
2958  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Or Alive 4 - Time to bring it! on: January 02, 2006, 10:39:25 AM
Fighting one of my friends is a lot like fighting the AI at times.  She can pull counters all over the place.  Personally I can usually rack up 5 and 6 hit combo's fairly regularly.  She has problems with juggling, I have problems with counters... which is why I can still beat her on occasion.

The game is hard, no doubt about it.  I really can't understand why you would not include an easier difficulty, unless you really don't intend to grow your player base beyond those who already love the series.

It also seems that they focused on the online much more than the offline play.  They took out the tag battle offline.  Now the only way to play co-op with a friend is in vs. and that's not quite the same.  They also only have 3 arenas for tag battle.  The game doesn't track your stats vs. the computer, only vs. another gamertag.  There doesn't appear to be a way to see what items you've collected in survival, even though collecting all the items is an achievement.  For some reason there isn't a unified score board for offline.  Each profile has its own scoreboard... which again doesn't make much sense to me.

At any rate as a long time fan of the series I'm still enjoying the game.  I do wish they'd made some different design decisions though.  I'm not sure that I would be having as much fun if I was new to the series.

I do have to say that as annoying as alpha-152 is... the boss in Tekken 5 is much much cheaper.
2959  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How many are staying up for the new year? on: January 01, 2006, 07:10:35 AM
Up and watching a desk for the next 7 hours.  Then back to banging my head on DOA4 for a while... and sleep.
2960  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Or Alive 4 - Time to bring it! on: January 01, 2006, 06:16:53 AM
I'm getting better at the game.  Have made it through with most of the characters in story mode so far.

For the most part I can handle the AI... it is frustrating at times, but other times things come together and it is good.  And then... you fight alpha-152.  The only good thing I can say about her is that at least they didn't decide to screw with your viewpoint this time.

Of course they decide to make her the final part of time attack... and then expect you to get under 4 and a half minutes!?  My friends and I have been playing the various DOA's for years... the fastest any of us have manged is 15 minutes.

It's really amusing (not especially) to look at the time breakdown when you win and see 15 minutes spent fighting alpha.  <sigh>  I can only add my voice to the 'what the hell happened to easy' crowd.
