15441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 Graphics Glitches? on: November 15, 2004, 03:15:26 PM
Yea, I've noticed the mipmapping (I believe that is the term) pretty often during cutscenes but I'm usually too busy being clubbed like a baby seal to notice it during single or multiplayer.
15442  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 15, 2004, 02:16:10 PM
So I played a bit this weekend, a few times with the clan, and realized that I need more practice.  My skill varies from way on top to dead dead DEAD last.  I'm looking forward to getting together with you guys and getting an all CG game going.  I also gotta log some time in the single player to get some practice in there too so I don't get my ass handed to me so much.

But Joe Customer shouldn't have to browse Gamespy and PlanetHalfLife to make sure that a game he *buys* in a *store* in a *box* freakin' works when he takes it home. That's BS. It's not as much BS as world hunger or terrorism, but it's still BS.

I'm on this bandwagon as well.  I think its crazy that they are dragging this out any longer now that their management of the release has been botched all to shit and back.  It was a nice plan VU, now let it go and let us play already.  The only thing that waiting does is frustrate consumers.  

That said, I've got more than enough to play to bother with HL2 right now.  A few more days will let me knock out a few more reviews before HL2 hits the 'shelves' so to speak.

Did you just call me a nub?

15445  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 14, 2004, 04:12:43 PM
If anyone needs to be invited to the clan, speak up and one of us will get you in. smile
15446  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 13, 2004, 09:46:39 PM
Be on shortly!  YES!
15447  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Friday Night Fight - Tribes Vengeance on: November 13, 2004, 04:22:20 PM
Well....I've got a plan. slywink  I'm going to better coordinate the next one and see if we can get a bit more advertising.  Something like a FNF with us and Evil Avatar's crew or something.  I'm also inviting a local LAN party crew that Josh, one of our new staff members, plays with.  If we can get a regular game going that'd be cool and I'd definately support it.
15448  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / OFFICIAL HALO2 CLAN NAME POLL on: November 13, 2004, 01:25:52 AM
WELL, no box here so one of the staff is going to create the clan and we'll figure it out later.  Crush newbies and I'll hope to hell I get in tomorrow....ugh.
15449  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 13, 2004, 12:20:42 AM
I recreated the poll.  Just refresh the forum.  You'll see the new one.

unless it could be today
It should be on my doorstep when I get home.  If it is, I'll immediately create the clan.  If not, I'll post and you guys can do yo thang until I get my box back.  Tracking number says delivered....

H, sorry. It had just been so long I figured he didn't care.

Oh I wish.  My Xbox died, I should be back up and running today.  Its driving me craaaaazy!!

We do need an official name.  Somebody wanna gather up the serious nomations and start putting them in one place so we can then pick from them?

Yea, totally!  I'm always happy to help, and I don't mean treating you like a beat-toy until you 'get it'.  

Oh and by the way....the server is up now.  You can find it listed as:
ConsoleGold.com's Tribes Server

If you add it to your favorites, its easier to find.  It'll always be listed this way. smile  I'm off to work, disc it up!

15456  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / HALO 2 CLAN on: November 11, 2004, 06:27:03 PM
I'd like to run it to keep it official if we can.  My Xbox died on me which is why this isn't already done before you guys even GOT your copies.  What bad timing.  As we speak, my staff is taunting me because I can't play...I can feel the love, its sticking sharply in my back!  I should be back on my feet today or tomorrow at the latest.

Hey guys, this is Sloan from Gone Gold, my first post here! Glad I found you guys!

Or do the collection questions like I do:

Quest to IronForge, Quest to the Auction house, Quest into your pocket, and drop the magical coin into the slot.  Bamkapowwham, instadone. smile  10 Goretusk livers?  Not in this lifetime...
15459  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / CG WoW Guild Roll Call on: November 10, 2004, 03:07:44 PM
I'm in.  The only caveat of course is making sure everyone lands on the same server.  I won't be a part of the 'guild' but I'll help support you guys.  I'll work an alliance with the much larger guild that I'm a member of..they'll take care of us. smile

Oh yea...planning on playing Horde.  Undead Warlock and probably an Undead Rogue.
15460  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / The new beta testers' WoW impressions thread! on: November 10, 2004, 01:55:48 PM
Hmmm....that is really odd.  I wonder if you might have better luck on a less populated server?  On the beta servers (which are not overloaded like the stress test ones) I'm not getting stuff like that.  It just sounds like lag issues...

hhehhee...."foozle". smile
15461  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Friday Night Fight - Tribes Vengeance on: November 10, 2004, 01:45:21 PM
I'll be kicking up the server early Friday morning (like 4:30am) and letting it run till I wake up on Saturday!  Lets get some Tribes: Vengeance action going!!  Who's with me?
15462  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines Hands-On Preview on: November 09, 2004, 10:26:34 PM

15465  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines - Minimimum Specs on: November 08, 2004, 09:16:32 PM
Release date is not official yet, but I was told that is absolutely 100% in November.  (The date that we have set is 1 week after HL2, and I think that is a fairly safe bet)
15466  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines - Minimimum Specs on: November 08, 2004, 06:26:47 PM
Because I loves ya...

Quad-Speed CD-ROM drive (600 K/sec sustained transfer rate) and drivers
3.3 GB of uncompressed hard disk space for game files and saved games (plus 1.4 GB for Windows® swap file)

All that said, when I played it (and it was silky smooth) it was on a 2.6Ghz P4 with 1GB of RAM on a Geforce 6600 128mb card.  Not bleeding edge and not a frame drop either.  The guys at Troika were saying that they are running the game at 60+ with all the goodies on an ATI 9600 Pro as well.  smile

Slow for me too. I am sure Ron knows and is working on it.

Finally nailed this one down.  A pair of core routers of AT&T's went down late last night causing some severe routing latency.  Apparently some folks felt it for a lot of sites whereas some folks only felt it on things that are more bandwidth intensive (database run items).  All makey fixey now though from what I've seen.  Anyone seeing residual effects?

15469  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Console Gold WoW Guild-Alliance/PvE-On to step two on: November 08, 2004, 02:10:41 PM
Well, I'll jump in and say that I cannot run a CG WoW guild as I'm already part of a very very large guild.  That said, when we get into final I'll make my character names known on the boards, if you see me on, track me down and we'll adventure.  smile

*sigh*

Somehow I don't see the bunch around here sticking together enough for this.
The second I can create a clan I will be doing so and posting it here kids.  I should have the game before any of you so I should trump the whole 'everybody has a clan so we are all scattered' thing too. smile

Sorry. I just hate IGN.

No need to be sorry...release the hate. smile  I hate IGN too!

I'll have my Halo 2 review up as soon as possible.  It'll be up before you can buy it.  You'll note that I do not have any ads for Halo 2 on the site, so maybe my review will be a little more objective...heheh

Haven't heard anything on the copy protection yet.
15474  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Tribes Vengeance on: November 06, 2004, 01:42:44 AM
Looks like the dedicated server will be a little more difficult than I thought to set up behind my firewall/ router.  Tomorrow for sure though....
15475  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Paladin Talents Sneak Peek on: November 05, 2004, 11:55:54 PM
Looking forward to it.  My pally is pretty powerful, but these will make her able to dish it out a little better in Darkshire.

15477  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Tribes Vengeance on: November 05, 2004, 06:41:08 PM
Last night I was standing victorious with 39 kills 4 deaths and 19 flag caps on one map.  I'm looking forward to some game time....

And I suppose I could send you a nice round spinfuser...its like a pizza, except for the plasma and the burning...and the explosion.
15478  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Tribes Vengeance on: November 05, 2004, 05:58:39 PM
Well, regardless of whether EA bites or not I'll set it up tonight.  I'll post the server info in here and on the front page when the server is up and tested.
15479  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines Hands-On Preview on: November 05, 2004, 11:55:13 AM
Or because Ron typically doesn't see why we segregate titles that are released from those that are not, but opened Road to Gold because you guys asked me to.  slywink
15480  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Tribes Vengeance on: November 04, 2004, 01:15:33 PM
Ok, I got the game last night and played a bit.  Seems I'm a little rusty but I was still getting 4 kills per 1 death on average.  I'm going to try to do a cross-promotion Fight Night with Evil Avatar, see if we can get some of those guys in.  Stay tuned....
