15483  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....
15484  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!
15485  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
15486  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.
15487  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...
15488  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.

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)

Well..I would have to say Power Rangers Dino Thunder for the GBA. But, since I was revewing it...I had little choice.

MUHAHHAHAHHAHHAHHAHHAA....

I love my job.
15491  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 this...help other folks with how to get around them and such. smile
15492  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.  :/
15493  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
15494  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How have CG's forums changed since the flood of GG refugees? on: December 09, 2004, 07:26:50 PM

15501  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.
15502  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [gba] Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories on: December 06, 2004, 04:01:40 PM
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.
15503  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / What low population servers are you all on? on: December 06, 2004, 03:40:18 PM

15504  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Spyware in the banner ads? on: December 06, 2004, 02:53:16 PM
I will investigate this immediately.  Where did you receive this?  In the forums or on the front page?

15509  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

You can see my COD: FH review right here: http://www.consolegold.com/Reviews/review/296.html

Its for the Cube version but they are essentially the same.
15513  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.
15514  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 way....pictures perhaps?
15515  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.
15516  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."
15517  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.
15518  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"
15519  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...
15520  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.
