1561  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 is dead! PS3 has keyboard/mouse support!!!! on: September 03, 2005, 02:45:41 PM
There's no reason the 360 couldn't use a mouse and keyboard. I'll agree that this does unbalnce online play though.

A side question about Starforce. Is there a website that lists the games that use Starforce? Also why does a demo have SF on it for anyways?
1563  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Im still waiting for the New Orleans Relief fund ..... on: September 03, 2005, 04:26:33 AM
I think back the first Gulf War and how the Iraq government got allot of its info just watching CNN, cause it was better then what they could do. I think the director of FEMA could have followed the same line to keep himself better informed.  


I know the Bush hardly if ever "makes heads roll" when something goes wrong but I can't believe he would let this guy stay on after the idiotic and just clueless stuff he has said.

I'll nominate either Barney from the Half-Life games(although he was only around some fo the time he's still a cool character), or Minsc from Baldur's Gate...ohh and Boo too.  smile

That should give you an idea.  Top 6 just for easy-to-see numbers and games:

• Half Life 59,630
• Half Life 2 30,880
• Call of Duty 10,290
• Unreal Tournament 2004 6,736
• Americas Army: Special Forces 6,161
• Neverwinter Nights 4,856



BF2 is number #3.

I loved Asherons Call (1). It was so much fun, and the world changed every 4-6 weeks. Where is WoW's updated content? ::sigh::

ah well.


I agree. After quiting EQ I thought I was done with MMO's for awile, but after trying the free demo week they had before it launched I got sucked in again. It help that my "mentor"(I forgot the titles they used for the pyramid scheme thing they had set up) was a really cool guy that was always helping us low players out. I rember the first monthly event. They had winter come to the world and made everything white. It was a pretty basic change(just make all the textures white pretty much), but they added new monsters that started to roam around and such. It was a cool idea overall.
1567  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Oblivion Interview - Lots of new info! on: August 28, 2005, 04:52:32 AM
Quote from: "Rage"

Yeah I think that is exactly correct. I don't really understand all the Morrowind hate from LE-yeah, the game had glaring flaws-but if you enjoyed the sandbox open-endedness of it all it could be tremendously engrossing-there was a cubic assload of things to do and so many many ways of going about it. Plus the game had more "joy of discovery" moments than any game not an MMO that I can ever remember playing.


You basically answered the question of the "hate" although I think for most is diffrent levels of disappointment. Glaring flaws are just that. Some gamers didn't mind them as much as others or liked other parts of the game enough to put up with them. This game sounds like they really did try to see what worked and what didn't and to impliment improvements where needed. I hope they can pull it off as AAA level RPG's are very few and far between these days. Not a fan of Japanese RPG's so the pickings have been slim lately.
1568  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion no longer a launch day title (XBox 360) on: August 23, 2005, 06:17:26 PM
I think the people still believeing in this thing coming out right around launch are doing some wishful thinking. If the game could be finished a week later then it could be ready at launch. This smells exactly like the standard delay stuff that will lead it it being anywhere from weeks to several months later.

Supposedly the more expensive Xbox will have "Premium Chrome" on it...I wonder what the core system will look like.  It also looks like Gold Xbox 30-day trial will come with the system as well and I wonder how they are going to handle people that have Xbox Live through next year.


They could just have the 30 days tacked on for people who still have time left on a Live subscription.

It will be more powerful so it will look better.  That is the simple fact of putting it out later.  Did the Xbox look better than the PS2?


Thats just buying into the Sony hype machine of the Cell processor. Just because its 6 months later isn't going to mean some quantum leap in power. Plus with the Xbox MS built a machine that was well above its selling price in terms of cost to build so they could try to outdo the PS2. As we saw they lost so much money per machine they never had a chance to be profitable. Neither of them is going to do that this time around.

 It's not even close.  Plus, I saw an ungodly demo of Unreal Tournament 3 running on PS3 software.  It was jaw dropping.

This is all coming from someone who owns an Xbox and has never owned a Playstation.


So? The 360 can run the Unreal 3 engine fine. Guilty Gear looks as good as anything out there right now.

After digesting this a bit, I think the whole thing isn't as shocking as it first seemed.  The biggest issue is that developers won't take full advantage of the HDD, since not all players will have one.  But since all the developers knew this up front, its not like its changing anything.  Oblivion and friends aren't going to be any different after this press release.


I don't buy that this was all up front. If it truely was then why would Bethesda be making a RPG for the 360 that they themselves say requires HD. I don't believe they would have done this. This sounds like MS changing their minds over the last few months and then trying to cobble something up that lets them say they have a system for $299 like they have been hinting at for a long time. The marketing of it up to this point looks foolish too now . They showed off the wireless at E3 front and center, they talked about the HD allot. Now both of those are apart of a more expensive deluxe package with the standard $300 one having neither. Not to mention them offering that Silver! Live stuff with it even though allot of the features of it will need the HD. It looks like a mess IMO.

While the plot for the first movie was pretty standard, the action was well done. Still remember seeing the trailer with "the door" scene and thinking how cool that was.
1575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dungeon Siege II Review is UP on: August 16, 2005, 05:25:27 PM
Not sure if I want to drop $50 on this as I liked the first overall but not allot. This maybe a wait for a GoGamer sale title...then again its real dry now for PC games coming out this whole summer.

It was a Viewsonic GS790 19'.

Well count me as another who liked the game. Not their best work but I enjoyed it. Bioware is still one of the few devs I'll buy a game if they're behind it without waiting for reviews or word of mouth.
1578  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 720p = What resolution? on: August 15, 2005, 11:40:15 PM
I've had that problem with the few demos/games around since I switched to a flat panel(My previous regular 19' worked fine for those). I switched off 720p in the Xbox settings so doesn't try to run it at that resolution anymore.

Yes, the ability IS there, but I want to have a physical copy of the disc that the company has made.  The discs you can buy from the store can have issues and degrade quicker than the media that comes from the publisher.  The discs are also more prone to scratches than the media that you get from the publishers, as I believe that they coat it with some material that makes it more scratch resistant.[/quote


Uhh are you just makeing up whatever you can too keep your flimsy excuse going somehow? A couple of months ago a put in a burned copy of that old FPS Shogo(Was bored and wanted to see if it worked under XP and what kind of frames pers second I could get). The disc which is at least 5-6 years old worked perfectly fine. Can you get cheap CD media that doesn't work as good? Yea just like anything there's is stuff thats quality and stuff thats cheap and sucks.

If you want physical media then guess what then go and buy a copy of HL2. They gave people the option.


Your excuses get weaker and weaker with every post...

1581  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / $400 sound card?! Whaahuh?! on: August 11, 2005, 07:10:27 PM
Uhh not sure what your talking about the SB line of cards like the Audigy have consistantly been the lowest in CPU usage over the years. The one little fact people ignore when they complain about SB cards and problems is that since their are far more of them out there(at elast in the stand alone market not onboard sound) than any other one they are going to have more complaints.
1582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 Pre-Release Thread on: August 11, 2005, 07:06:04 PM
While a number of those games look to just be ones that will also come out for other systems so they will just be high-res versions of current gen games the list is pretty good for a system launch overall.

*Forgot to add - the 360 gets FFXI with updated graphics!  Great!  Except I can renew my account and get a patch for the PC version that I have already.  Bummer.


Could of swore I rememebred hearing that if you cancelled your FFXI account you couldn't just start it up again but had to get a new copy/CD key.
1584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Hold the Phones guys, Xbox 360 Hard Drive not included? on: August 10, 2005, 06:30:55 AM
If MS made the HD an addon they might as well throw it away. Throughout the entire history of consoles there is one lesson, if you want a feature to be widely adopted you make it part of the base system, period. All you have to do is look at the PS2 HD. Also as others have said I doubt Bethesda would be making Oblivion for the Xbox 360 if the HD wasn't going to be standard.

1586  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Rafael Palmeiro suspended for steroid violation on: August 02, 2005, 06:40:08 AM
Not sure what to make of this. He is the last person you would think would be taking steriods. At least at this point in his career. He has reached the 500+hr and 3000+ hits, and its probably his last year.Gonna sound like defending the guy but it makes no sense why he would do this purposly. The guy can't be that dumb.

I hear rumor they are shooting for the end of this year for a launch window.  We'll have that decision upon us soon enough.


Not a chance. Every site I see says it will be fall 06' at the earliest.

Don't see the problem with the specs. They are around what a mid-range desktop is today. In 18 months $500 machines will be able to meet those no problem.
1588  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Miyamoto on the Revolution on: July 27, 2005, 06:37:10 AM
Echo pretty much what Graham said about the GC controller. Its like Nintendo being diffrent for the sole reason to just...be diffrent. I'll take something like the S-contoller anyday(except make the buttons flat not rounded IMO).
1589  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Miyamoto on the Revolution on: July 26, 2005, 06:21:09 AM
He thinks the new Zelda on the GC is equal to whats being show as next-gen? He thinks the new Zelda matches something like Guilty Gear? Zelda is looking very nice visually but thats in comparsion to other current titles. Miyamoto needs to get some glasses.

Not sure what people are talking about. The Gaming mags I get(CGW and CGM), are not %85 ads. Can't rememebr what CGM editor Steve baumen said over at Qt3 but the ad ratio was less than half the magzine. Pull out a muscle mag or Bride magazine it you want to see tons of ads.

If you have a subscription the magazines are about $2.50 an issue.

I'd like to see it. As a RTS player I have been wanting to see someone try a RTS on it too see how it would play. Wether the stylus would work well enough(Seems like it would) and if the screen would be big enough for it.

For instance, coming back from retrieving the supplies, they were talking pretty LOUD.  The guy on point is not doing what a guy on point should do, the guy guarding the rear isn't doing his job....all in all, very unsatisfying.  


While I admit your waiting for something bad to happen to them in that situation and as soon as that scene started I was like "here it comes", I don't think it was totally out of place. None of those three characters are regular soldiers, there all support personel(mechanics and such) so that mode isn't "normal" for them so to speak. Plus they had made there way down to the site and were back up in the trees thinking there safer now. A minor down point I think.
