2921  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>
2922  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.

Should have beat her senseless with barehands....  but I suppose that would still be assault.... darn guards!

 :twisted:

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!
2926  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
2927  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.
2928  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.
2929  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
2930  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
2931  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.
2932  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:
2933  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.
2934  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.
2935  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.
2936  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.
2937  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.
2938  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>
2939  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!!!
2940  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.
2942  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:
2944  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.
2945  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.
2946  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.
2947  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ninja Gaiden Black on the 360 on: March 11, 2006, 11:02:59 PM
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.
2949  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.
2950  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.
2951  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.
2952  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.
2953  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.
2954  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.
2955  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.
2956  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
2957  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:
2958  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.
2959  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.
2960  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.
