15481  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / just sold my PS2 on ebay -- awesome ending! on: December 03, 2004, 11:59:10 PM
So are you saying I should sell my signed Halo 2 numbered and sealed limited edition hand drawn lithograph on Ebay?

15485  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fallout Tactics observation. on: December 02, 2004, 04:13:55 PM
Man, I loved the Fallout titles...I just couldn't get in to Tactics for some reason.  Is that so wrong?

I'm looking forward to a Bethesda-developed Fallout 3 though. smile

Buncha thumbtwiddlers....

Wands do not have a number of charges, you can cast at will.
15488  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone pick up CoD: FH or Demon Stone? on: November 30, 2004, 04:48:59 PM
You can see my COD: FH review right here:

Its for the Cube version but they are essentially the same.
15489  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo DS on: November 30, 2004, 01:30:57 PM
Day after Black Friday there were stacks of them still in the cases at Wal-Mart.  I asked about buying a PS2...he said he didn't have any of them, haven't had any in weeks, but had plenty of Nintendo DS's to sell.
15490  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Elisha Cuthbert is 22 today [56k warning I suspect] on: November 30, 2004, 01:08:27 PM
I thought that you guys might be celebrating in some perhaps?
15491  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Screen shots on: November 30, 2004, 04:27:44 AM
Hell, its pre-e3 at this point. slywink  We've got some preliminary code in the hopper that El has to look over.  Don't worry, its not dead in the water.
15492  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game - Round 2 on: November 29, 2004, 08:40:50 PM
Ok kids, you know the drill by now.  For those new to the game, I'll kick it off with a movie quote.  You tell me what movie its from and if you are correct you get to some up with a quote.  Occasionally the quotes are phophetic, often they are profane, so this thread is rated R </MovieFone Voice guy>.

If nobody is able to break the movie quote within 24 hours you have to fess up the answer and go again.  

Lets kick this off with an easy one:

"Hey, these blow up into funny shapes at all?"
"Well, no. Unless round is funny."
15493  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Goldeneye: Rogue Agent (Can you say "ouch"?) on: November 29, 2004, 07:54:36 PM
Hey, I enjoyed the hell out of Burnout3.  I loved Burnout2 so I knew what I was getting into.  The computer cheating?  Yea, knew that going in.  Is that EA's fault?  Nope...they didn't put in one bit of code.
15494  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pirates! - A few thoughts... on: November 29, 2004, 07:13:34 PM
It could be that I still play Pirates! to this day but I found that I could devistate a Spanish War galleon with a Sloop.  Maybe the difficulty level will rise as I play but it didn't take long before I was the top dog on the pirateyness list and I had purchased most items twice.  

"Hey, I've got this great spyglass to sell you!"
"Is it like the one on my hip here?"
"Yes!  Exactly like that!"
"Will it actually do anything different than when I didn't have it?"
"No!  Its the same!"
"Here, take my money good sir!  I'm a sucker for an overpriced duplicate bargain!"
"Yarrr chaching!"
"Off to my dancing lessons!"
"Oh I got boots for that!"
"There's no help for me good sir....Pirates don't dance."
"Yarrrr, especially with the wood leg"
15495  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How have CG's forums changed since the flood of GG refugees? on: November 29, 2004, 03:06:19 PM
I have to admit that I was a bit worried there for a while, but good discussion among managers and mods and the community at large kept the oars in the water.  I'm happy with how things turned out.

As far as how things changed, we do have a bit more traffic than before, but I don't think our core has changed much.  We had a solid community of people interested in gaming and I think we still have that.  

That said, I'm happy that we are now covering PC - there were just too many great games that we were not covering because of our console-only focus.  I'm happy to be covering great titles like WoW, EQII, Vampire, HL2, etc. as well as the smaller nitche titles that some folks won't necessarily pick up like CSI and Sherlock Holmes.  As we move forward and integrate PC a bit better I think the focus will re-adjust and blend so its more even, but that'll take time.  I love watching this site grow...
15496  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / why does it take hours for private messages to be delivered? on: November 29, 2004, 02:55:27 PM
Hmmm, I'll look into this.  I've not noticed any latency but that doesn't mean its not there.  Keep me posted if you see any other fluctuations.
15497  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Red Barchetta is a good song on: November 29, 2004, 02:54:46 PM
I'm a huge Rush fan.  Neil is a God.
15498  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The IPod Banner on: November 29, 2004, 02:53:25 PM
Hahaahaha.  The best part is, the guy across from me at work is trying to get me in on some free ipod 'deal' as I read this.

15500  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Can we get more focused reviews on small-to-mid sized games? on: November 26, 2004, 01:50:54 PM
I fully understand - not to worry, the lamda won't be up there long.  We have a whole host of new reviews upcoming that will take its place. smile
15501  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Christmas Recommendation/Wishlist Thread on: November 25, 2004, 11:41:34 PM
Don't forget to hit our holiday guide on the front page! smile
15502  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Server Choice on: November 25, 2004, 11:02:48 PM
We have 80 people thus far in the guild roster of The Lost Order of Akalabeth.  Don't know if you guys are interested, but suffice to say there is always somebody on.  I don't want for gear, enchantments, or anything else - our guild takes care of its own.
15503  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Can we get more focused reviews on small-to-mid sized games? on: November 25, 2004, 07:27:38 PM
Specifically what small to mid-sized titles have we missed?  We didn't rush to press with our 'blockbuster' titles like Halo 2, or Killzone, so I don't know that we fit in the 'me too!' demographic.  I know we have some titles coming up like Bust a Move, Spyro, Tron, etc.  Would those more fit the bill?
15504  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Great Vampires: Bloodlines forum on: November 24, 2004, 06:17:03 PM
My only complaint with that site is that they condone a lot of chat about piracy.  That has always bugged me, but its not my show so I don't control the curtains. smile  

The cool thing about using this engine is that is is VERY moddable, so I fully expect that we'll see the Vampire community take this game to the next level as soon as they stop playing it long enough to work on it. slywink
15505  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone into hacker games? on: November 24, 2004, 05:57:54 PM
I routinely play through Neuromancer and both flavors of Shadowrun once a year.  I love hacker games, just wish somebody'd do something decent with em.
15506  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Wanderers invite you on: November 24, 2004, 05:56:03 PM
We'll welcome you to WoW with open arms when Sony smacks your character with the +5 Nerfbat Harkonis.  smile
15507  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KOTOR 2 Gold! on: November 24, 2004, 05:54:55 PM
I'm onboard for this.  The folks at Bioware tell me that they had their hands in the mix the whole time, so I'm less nervous.
15508  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Server Choice on: November 24, 2004, 05:31:51 PM
I think I spotted you!  Add me to your friends list and we'll adventure around....
15509  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [CG] Ad Banners on: November 24, 2004, 05:06:23 PM
Hahhhaa.  Well, I can't turn em all off or we simply defeat the purpose, but I'll try to keep them as tasteful as possible.  On the other hand, name one other site that is willing to remove ads for you. smile
15510  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [CG] Ad Banners on: November 24, 2004, 04:32:07 PM
The flashing ads and roaches are gone (or will be within the hour)

15511  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / haha @ WOW on: November 24, 2004, 03:27:44 PM
I'm not a fanboy, I'll tell you if something is broken - When I logged on last night I had zero lag and zero queue time.  Its not a canned response, its just the truth.  *shrug*  Am I being an ass?
15512  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW Buzz. on: November 24, 2004, 01:31:51 PM
The first thing I did when I got into the newbie area was leave it.  smile  I know that all I had to do was complete one quest to get my warlock pet and I could take on level 4 critters, so I could leave the Undead newb town.
15513  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW Buzz. on: November 24, 2004, 01:19:30 PM
I logged onto the Lothar server and made my character and leveled him to level 5 without issue.  No queue, no problems.   The population is listed as 'low' when I was playing as well....the division of the servers seems to be evening out.  Hopefully Tim will get a clue and join us. smile
15514  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Server Choice on: November 24, 2004, 11:36:17 AM
.....and Knightshade the Undead Warlock was unearthed.  Zazen the Night Elf Rogue was also brought to life.
15515  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [CG] Ad Banners on: November 24, 2004, 12:56:26 AM
Quote from: "Yossarian"
ads are good.  flashing "winner" ads are bad.

I'll see if we can replace it with something more tasteful, same thing with the roach ad.
15516  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Server Choice on: November 23, 2004, 10:23:08 PM

(I'll be making a character on both sides)
15517  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Are you interested in an official CG WoW Guild? on: November 23, 2004, 08:24:14 PM
I guess I'd also hate to see a 'pissing' match, hard feelings, or users here split up into different groups when all most of us want is one good group to play with. I couldn't care less what is official or not. Most people on these boards seem pretty mature, which is why I imagine most of us want to play together.

You got it!  That's all I'm looking to do.  I just want to get the crew together for runs into VC and smash and grabs on those cute little snacks us undead call "Gnomes".  smile
15518  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / MMORPG Question on: November 23, 2004, 07:45:19 PM
Nono...the octopi are on the other board. slywink
15519  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / MMORPG Question on: November 23, 2004, 07:29:39 PM
Here is some insight:  I can run this site, manage her staff, and play WoW while working full time and going to school full time.  I'd say it fits nicely into the small nooks and crannies of limited time constraints.
15520  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Summary of WoW Guild Info? on: November 23, 2004, 07:27:22 PM
I belong to a massive guild called The Lost Order of Akalabeth that dates back to the pre UO days. We play pretty much everything and have hundreds of active members. (  We'll be playing on the LOTHAR server and I'm hoping that regardless of the formation of any other guilds they will to.  All cards on the table, official and unofficial don't mean squat to me, I just want the community to well...commune and work together and have fun. smile
