2961  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.
2962  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.
2963  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.
2964  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.
2965  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.
2966  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.
2967  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?
2968  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.
2969  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.
2970  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.
2971  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.
2972  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.
2973  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Or Alive 4 - Time to bring it! on: December 30, 2005, 09:55:12 PM
I'm up for some online playing.  Going to take a bit to get used to this version.
2974  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Welll...someone has DOA4 already! on: December 30, 2005, 09:54:24 PM
Fun!  Played through the story mode once so far.  Incredible graphics... fast pace... the ai tends to punish you if you make a mistake.  Very fun end cutscenes.

So far a very worthy DOA game.

<runs off to play more...>

2976  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ever wonder how to get 2 million points in Geometry Wars? on: December 20, 2005, 04:47:38 PM
Yeesh.  2million.  I've gotten 581,000.... and that's taken a lot of practice and luck.

Someday I will get the 1million achievement!  Oh yes I will...

<gollum gollum>
2977  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any DQ8 impressions yet? on: December 17, 2005, 10:10:03 AM
Just picked this up.  I'm having a lot of fun with it so far.  I'm really looking foward to being able to sit down and spend several hours on it!

Darned end of semester.

Geometry wars???

People stop playing this game??
2979  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Brag about your Gamerscore/Achievements here! on: November 30, 2005, 07:20:14 PM
Have 340 or so gamer points.

Managed to get 322k on geometry wars last night.  I was so happy!

Then I looked at the top ten scores on the game.  I have no idea how they do that.

However, at least I have something to shoot for.

Edit: 569,000 now.  This game might cost me a letter grade on a couple finals...
2980  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Perfect Dark Zero - Huge Hit or Colossal Failure? on: November 28, 2005, 06:57:45 AM
I've found out that the setup of the missions changes a little.  When you play through solo it will be set up one way, then going through co-op things will be different.  Usually requiring some teamwork in places.  It also seems like it changes after you gone through the level.  I went through co-op on a couple of levels with different people helping me, and the patrols were a little different for instance.

The splitscreen vs. bots is where I've had the absolute most fun so far.  Just found out tonight that when you play on the bigger maps there are points you can hack.  Once you've done that you can spawn closer to the action.
2981  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any 4 player coop games for the 360 yet? on: November 27, 2005, 12:12:13 AM
Perfect Dark also allows bots... myself and friends were playing 4 player us vs. the bots teamkill
2982  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The 360 crashes! It must suck! on: November 25, 2005, 10:09:28 PM
That would make sense.  Wonder if it's a software thing or hardware thing.  It would be nice to get a patch (like the ps2 DVD drivers) and be golden.
2983  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The 360 crashes! It must suck! on: November 25, 2005, 06:42:54 PM
Yeah, I'm going to try moving the power supply.  The thing is the system has been on and playing games for 6+ hours without any crashes or freezes.  Ten minutes into a DVD and it freezes.  I can still access the dashboard, forgot to mention that.
2984  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anybody else's Perfect Dark Zero buggy as crap? on: November 25, 2005, 06:33:03 PM
Was curious if anyone else has tried to watch a movie on the 360?  I haven't had the time to sit down and try watching one with the power brick off of the floor.  Although it is in the open on flat carpeting... not sure if that would affect it or not.

I would think not, since I've had the system on playing games for many hours in a row.  Just likes to crash when watching movies for some reason.
2985  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anybody else's Perfect Dark Zero buggy as crap? on: November 25, 2005, 06:02:28 AM
huh, spent probably better than 18 hours (mostly my friends playing) with PDZ in the console and playing.  No crashes.  On the other hand it loves to crash when I try to watch DVD's.
2986  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So far, what are your favorite 360 launch titles? on: November 24, 2005, 02:48:25 PM
Spent 6 hours or so playing Perfect Dark Zero last night.  Some co-op, lots of teamkill vs. the bots.

It is interesting that the levels really have some differences between the solo game and the co-op.

PGR3 is incredible.

Haven't actually played Kameo yet.  I hear it is fun though.
2987  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The 360 crashes! It must suck! on: November 24, 2005, 02:40:32 PM
Well... my 360 does not appear to like my DVD's of Equilibrium or Volcano High.  It freezes within 10 minutes of starting.

So far it hasn't frozen on Troy though so I'm wondering what the problem is.

2989  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lines Already Forming for XB360 on: November 22, 2005, 07:15:28 PM
Went out to one of the local walmarts after class yesterday.   I got there right about 4pm.  There were 17 people in line already.  I figured I was out of luck.  But I was wrong!  The store got 24 premium systems.  I was number 18 in line.

Had to sit around for 8 hours, but I was a happy camper at the end.  Now of course I have to actually get some time to play with it.  Spent about 20 minutes with Perfect Dark before I had to get some sleep, write a paper and take a test.  

Soon as I am done with class tonight...... let the fun begin!

On the other hand I was already planning on camping out various places in an attempt to find one monday night/tuesday morning.


Ah, mastered that space/time continuum thing, have you?


Yes!  Alternatively I suppose I could recruit friends to help me.  One of those requires less effort.  

Hopefully I'll know which one by monday.
2992  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] When are Gamestops getting their 2nd/3rd shipments? on: November 18, 2005, 05:27:47 AM
Yeah I got the automated call that told me I wasn't going to get one until after christmas.  On the other hand I was already planning on camping out various places in an attempt to find one monday night/tuesday morning.

In the meantime I'll keep getting the messages about the accessories I preordered and adding them to my shelf... where I can look and dream...

Bah.
2994  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Space Rangers 2? on: September 01, 2005, 12:59:21 AM
I've noticed that the dominator groups will attack each other as well as the alliance systems.  

I had knocked an occupied system down to just a couple of ships and was thinking ahead to my reward when I noticed a large group of dominators jumping in-system.

Much to my suprise the remaining original dominators left off attacking me and went after the other dominators instead!

It can be hard to notice sometimes but the dominator factions are pretty active against each other as well at times.
2995  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / This Just In: Jade Empire Sucks on: August 15, 2005, 09:46:10 PM
I haven't made it all the way through the game yet, though I have seen most of the game by watching friends play.  I enjoyed it, and once I can pry it back out of my friends hands I'll play through it.  Well and once I get out of training and into the school year so I can have time to play.

Both of my friends who have played through have finished it at least twice, they are both college girls for whatever that is worth.

As they say, people like different things.

Hmm... your talk of cars and guns and blowing things up randomly is intriguing...  there will be more investigation into this matter.
2997  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wow...Burnout Revenge coming Sept. 20th on: July 22, 2005, 07:11:28 AM
I am really looking forward to it!  Whether or not I get the 360 version depends on me being able to find a 360 without preordering it.  (I need my cash in my pocket just in case something comes up)

Burnout 3 is the one game that I can get pretty much anyone to play together, even my friends who don't game very much at all.  Road Rage is just too much fun, although I wish they had given some more freedom with setup options, 10 crashes comes way to quickly most of the time.
2998  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Whats the game? on: July 05, 2005, 08:44:30 AM

3000  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Started replaying Hunter Reckoning tonight and it's a blast on: June 18, 2005, 01:10:49 PM
Quote from: "stiffler"
Not to completely derail your topic, but speaking of these Hunter games, what order do they go in?

Xbox - Hunter: The Reckoning
Xbox - Hunter: The Reckoning Redeemer
PS2   - Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward

How do these compare to other co-op games?  From the look of them they appeared to support co-op much like the Baldur's Gate/Champions titles.  Have you tried them with other players?


The order is Reckoning, Wayward, Redeemer.  At least that is the order that they came out in.

My friends and I have had a lot of fun with these games co-op, although friendly fire 'off' is what we normally use.  Otherwise we seem to spend way too much time shooting each other  :wink:

Of the three we have gone through Redeemer over 8 times that I can remember, at about 6 hours a run through.  Redeemer just feels the most polished and fun.
