15481  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.
15482  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
15483  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?
15484  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines Hands-On Preview on: November 09, 2004, 10:26:34 PM
Yea, I'm in the process of posting the same PR piece.  I can confirm that.
15485  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pelican Light Rifle for Xbox on: November 09, 2004, 11:41:20 AM
I have one that I'm no longer using if you are looking to buy.  We can work out an arrangement. smile

I would so be supporting this if they would just respond to my email.... :/
15487  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)
15488  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines - Minimimum Specs on: November 08, 2004, 06:26:47 PM
Because I loves ya...

3D hardware accelerator card required - 100% DirectX® 9.0c-compatible 64MB video card and drivers
1.2 GHz Athlon(tm) or 1.2 GHz Pentium® III processor or higher
384MB of RAM (512MB of RAM recommended)
Microsoft® Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP
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)
100% DirectX® 9.0-compatible 16-bit sound card and drivers
100% Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP-compatible mouse, keyboard, and drivers
DirectX® 9.0c (Included)
Supported Chipsets for 98/ME/2000/XP:

All ATI® Radeon® Chipsets

Matrox® Parhelia(tm) Chipset


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?

15491  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

15496  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....
15497  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.

15499  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.
15500  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.
15501  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
15502  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....

Given that I work for an ISP I have a little more reach than most...let me see if I can find some info.
15504  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Tribes Vengeance on: November 03, 2004, 06:25:45 PM
I can set up Voice Chat as well if need be.  smile  I'm hoping that we can get more than just the two of us...lemme see about rounding up some more folks....
15505  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / The Propriety of Advertising Pimps Lord on: November 03, 2004, 03:29:53 AM
Apparently our readership was not interested in the game.  Despite our fantastic number of readers and repeat visitors, very few clicked through on Pimpslord.  It will fade from view shortly....

Server will be going up as soon as the box hits my hands.  Who else has the game so we can organize a little Fight Night?

Yessir, that is our link.  We do get referral credit and it is greatly appreciated. smile
15512  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines Hands-On Preview on: November 02, 2004, 01:10:49 PM
Well, I played in the hub I was in for two and a half hours and ended up walking past a lot of shops and skipping a lot of side quests to really try to get a taste of the overall game.  There is a lot going on in these areas.  Yea, there is some back and forth, but thats RPGs for ya.

It won't be until people actually start playing it that we find out about bugs.

Players will figure out new and interesting ways of exploiting and otherwise breaking the system...its always been that way. smile

How fast twitch is it? I suck at FPS.

It really isn't bad.  Your health doesn't fly down really fast and neither does theirs so it isn't click-click dead if you aren't paying attention.  (might be so with bosses though, I dunno)

Quote
When the npcs speak, is it voice only or is there readable text?

You have an option to turn on txt for their speech.

Quote
Is there a dvd version available?

Nope, its looking like 3-4 CDs on release for the game.

Quote
Is there a heavy emphasis on puzzles?

Didn't see a heavy emphasis on puzzles as much as interactions.  Dealing with the right people and how you deal with them seemed to be more the focus.

Quote
Is there an auto map system, or waypoints?

We only got to play in one hub, but at the bus stations there are city maps like the ones you might see in a mall.  As far as 'waypoints' its not set up so much like that.  You start off in the one hub but as you get reason to visit other hubs you can go there as well.  I was pretty leash-free to explore anywhere I wanted though...

BTW, RPGdot mentioned you.

Cool!  Thanks for the heads up.

I didn't read after the spoiler warning. Did you encounter any bugs or issues you thought might be bugs?
I ran into one graphical glitch with two guys playing cards where the card seemed to get stuck a few inches off the table.  Its really all I saw...
15518  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines Hands-On Preview on: October 29, 2004, 06:45:50 PM
Loren is dead on on this.  This is a must have day 1 purchase for me.  This trip only solidified that.  

As for Troika and the bugs, I talked with them at great length about this and they assure me that they have taken great lengths to make sure that did not happen here.  The delay after delay of Half Life 2 also gave them extra time to provide extra polish.  The removal of multiplayer also allows them to reign in the scope and focus a bit.

I can't say what happened with Arcanum, but publishers DO have to pay for those patches, so might have been one of those 'you'll pay or we aren't coding it' kinda scenarios?  I dunno....

Did you really get a feeling that the choices you made had a long term impact on later events? Or were most of the choices only in the short term with the story basically on a rail?

Ahhh, one of my big concerns.  Yes.  Stuff you do has a short, medium and long term effect.  It might not always be immediately apparent but there are always machinations in the background.  Sometimes you'll see it manifest in more choices, new contacts, or new quests.  Sometimes it'll determine who helps you later or looks to hurt you later.  That kinda thing
