15481  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Apparently Adrenaline Vault is dead/dying on: December 31, 2004, 01:26:36 PM
Why couldn't it have been Gamespy or IGN?

Don't worry....I openly admit that its my goal to shut IGN down. smile  I'll achieve that goal some day....
15482  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where is OO? on: December 29, 2004, 01:33:39 PM
I'm too busy to be bitter.  My only pain is that I don't feel very welcome when I go to OO.  The few times I've been over there it hasn't been pleasant so I don't go anymore.  It has more to do with the readership than the leadership, although there are pains there too.

As for us all hanging out together, I wish that was the case, but as somebody who had to straddle both sides of the fence, I am going to completely disagree that we had that kind of relationship between CG and GG once we moved into our own home.

retard  ninja  smoke

Oh yea....we got the cool smileys too.  As for not being a PC site, meh...we held the only review on the entire Internet of Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines for several days.  I'd not call that a small feat...hell, IGN was almost a week behind us.  We do plenty of PC gaming round these parts...

If it makes you console haters any more comfy, you can think of a console more along these terms. Linky cuz its huge.
15484  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / What happens if your personal message box is full? on: December 28, 2004, 04:53:56 AM
Of course.  smile
15485  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / What happens if your personal message box is full? on: December 28, 2004, 01:13:29 AM
You should get a mailbox full notification.   The pain in the ass is that it uses a pop-up to notify the recipient that they have new messages so unless they allow pop-ups from us they won't see the notification.  You'd have to rely on their powers of observation to see the "1 message waiting" notice.
15486  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Random Fighting Discussion on: December 27, 2004, 05:32:27 PM
I like kickboxing as much as the next, the only drag is that most of the fighters I've trained with are more destroyed by the training than any battles they might find themselves in.  They burn out too fast.  Martial Arts, traditional ones anyway, are a way of life.  You train for life and you live to train.  I might be a little more soggy round the midsection than in my prime but I've not lost any of my lethality because I did put in the 6 days a week, 4 hours a day for about 22 years.  I look forward to graduation from college not so much that I'll be a network engineer but more that I'll free that school time to go back to training.   You want to learn how to fight 'quickly'?  You might want to rethink why you want to learn how to fight, it might be just a hot head talking.  You want to learn how to completely devistate your aggressors two and three at a time with minimal effort?  Put in the time and get 'good' at a martial art.
15487  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2.5 on xbox 2...confirmed?!?!? on: December 26, 2004, 03:16:17 PM
I've heard this rumor since the day Halo 2 was launched, but its impossible to confirm.
15488  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Merry Christmas to all! on: December 25, 2004, 07:45:57 PM
Merry Christmas to everyone as well from all of us. smile

My wife and I are skipping the Christmas gift thing this year, her gift from her boss was the opportunity to find another job. :/  Oh well, my mom is here and we are having a big dinner as a family, that is worth it for me.
15489  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No cd cracks and CoC on: December 24, 2004, 03:03:19 PM
I'll tell you a story that will explain my feelings on them.  I am a huge Ultima fan...despite being burned time and time again by EA and their purchase of Origin I was very much anticipating Ultima 9.  I got the game and rushed home to install it.  I had purchased the "Dragon" edition, the box is essentially the size of a sheet of drywall and there are a ton of goodies inside.  I more than paid for my purchase.  

I couldn't play it.

For whatever reason, safedisc hated the True52X CDRoms from Kenwood and I happened to have one.  I had to resort to a no-cd crack to play the game and realize my full dissapointment.

Fast forward to more recent times, I'm playing Morrowind and I'm wondering why I'm getting such jerky performance on my system.  One no-cd crack later and the thing runs like silk.

Lets face it, no-cd cracks are almost necessary for some games to even function.   That said, lets be smart about it, take it to PM or email.  Out and out requests for the no-cd in public forums make the publishers unhappy which hurts the site, some of them don't realize that we are a more mature gaming crowd who actually purchase the games we play.
15490  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Rush on: December 23, 2004, 05:00:11 AM
Don't know how I missed this.  Yes, I'm interested!  What's the name of the album?  What other tracks are on it?
15491  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Swish!! It's good! Now how many points do I get?! on: December 22, 2004, 02:02:43 PM
What the?!  ahhahahhahaha....that's a good find!
15492  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / (WoW) New patch today, 12/21 on: December 22, 2004, 04:24:05 AM
Can anyone vouch for one of those downloads as being okay?
I grabbed the last one on the list, patched up, and played for about an hour. smile
15493  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / (WoW) New patch today, 12/21 on: December 21, 2004, 11:20:02 PM

What's the phrase we use 'round here?  Oh yea...

15496  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 20, 2004, 11:24:36 PM
I'd ask that if you see a particular ad that is irritating or offensive you send me a screenshot at [email protected] so that I can send it to the agency for deletion.  It makes it easier than describing them. smile Thanks!
15497  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire: Bloodlines Import question on: December 20, 2004, 12:30:53 PM
I'll research it and find out.
15498  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 20, 2004, 12:57:36 AM
It could be a second ad Raven.  The point is you don't have to be rude about it. :roll:  I had one removed, that much I can confirm.   If I see (or am alerted) to another one, I'll have it removed.  I see the other one that you are talking about so I sent a request to have it removed - I'm sure it'll be done Monday morning.  Until that time, I challenge you to find me another webmaster that is willing to remove an ad just because YOU don't like it.
15499  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / ARRGHH!!!! Pulling hair out! Please help. on: December 18, 2004, 02:21:09 PM

15501  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS2 Shortage: Grrrr..... on: December 17, 2004, 06:59:54 PM
....and newer Xbox Live games have detection systems that will ban your Xbox permanently the second a mod chip is detected, regardless of whether it is on Live or not.  (store and forward)  I'd not take the risk if I were you....
15502  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 17, 2004, 06:51:51 PM
I am very appreciative of what you guys are doing!  Thankfully the agency I work with is aware that I will not compromise my readership with shoddy ads and they are very responsive when I ask them to remove the offenders.  

On behalf of the staff, thanks again...I can't express how much it means that you value the site and our work that much.   Happy Holidays!
15503  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 17, 2004, 11:40:21 AM
Got a response from the agency that provides those, he assures me it'll be gone first thing this morning. smile
15504  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 17, 2004, 02:43:24 AM
D'oh!  I'll have that thing killed immediately. smile  As for the paypal thing, it is always appreciated - my paypal account is [email protected] and all proceeds go directly to server costs. smile  I'm glad that you guys enjoy the site, one day I hope to be able to do it with only game related ads...we are getting there, this is just a step to move in that direction.
15505  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire on: December 16, 2004, 11:40:11 AM
I got to sit down with Bioware at E3 for about an hour and a half to play Jade Empire, you should pre-order this game most definately.  Its going to be fantastic...
15506  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What next? Paralyzed by indecision... on: December 15, 2004, 06:10:23 PM
Baten Kaitos has done well in the reviews.   Not a bad bet from what I've heard.
15507  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Tell me... on: December 15, 2004, 04:30:12 PM
What Eco meant to say is that Firefox will get cookies but because its a non-compliant browser it'll become confused and probably just chuck its cookies.   (I like Firefox, I just like playing both sides of the war better)
15508  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The worst game you played this year. on: December 14, 2004, 04:08:24 PM
Well..I would have to say Power Rangers Dino Thunder for the GBA. But, since I was revewing it...I had little choice.


I love my job.
15509  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So I broke Return of the King tonight... on: December 10, 2004, 08:04:42 PM
Maybe we should make a list of showstoppers like other folks with how to get around them and such. smile
15510  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / i want my game music!... on: December 10, 2004, 03:39:09 PM
Karubu's Shoe!  

I've always purchased the Blizzard Soundtracks and DVD's of their cutscenes sight-unseen just because I trust them based on their previous products.  The only time that burned me was with the Starcraft "Soundtrack" which was actually some Korean-made DJ mix crap of soundbites from the game mixed in with crummy techno.  :/
15511  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / i want my game music!... on: December 10, 2004, 02:59:15 PM
Welcome semiconscious!  I'm with you - I want soundtracks.  Some of the games through the years have had some great soundtracks and I would have enjoyed having them at my fingertips rather than some shiny metal box to toss in the box of boxes. smile
15512  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How have CG's forums changed since the flood of GG refugees? on: December 09, 2004, 07:26:50 PM

Depends on the price and what else is in the box.
15519  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Spyware in the banner ads? on: December 06, 2004, 08:59:09 PM
Not a problem.  I take this stuff very seriously - if we could run without them I would.  Keep me posted if you see similiar things in the future and thanks for letting us know.

I couldn't get into the first one for some reason, but I'll probably give KHII a shot.  I don't know if I can swing at a GBA title though.
