16041  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worlds of Warcraft - An Introspective on: July 13, 2004, 06:25:16 PM
Well, I've done well with just occasionally using my herbology skill.  I can usually find what I need to get by with my enchanting skill.  I like how the skills are complimentary but not mutually required.  You don't HAVE to skin creatures to work on leather, you can buy it cheap enough, but that cuts into your profit margin.  I'm finally at a skill level where I can craft and make money with it.  Good times.
16042  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 Confirmed for E3 2005 on: July 13, 2004, 06:09:05 PM
Well, not sure if there will be any actual games at E3 as the developers need to get their hands on the dev kits to get that done, but we might get a few 1st party surprises.
16043  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rent it? Buy it? Wait? on: July 12, 2004, 06:01:06 PM
Nah, that isn't stupid.  That's why I don't do the rent thing as well.
16044  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rent it? Buy it? Wait? on: July 12, 2004, 05:51:18 PM
So you are on the fence for whatever reason (length, middle-of-the-road review scores, whatever) on a new game.  Today's poll asks whether you would rent it, buy it, or wait for the eventual price drop.
16045  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / King Arthur? on: July 12, 2004, 12:54:07 PM
Anyone brave this movie?  I have to be honest...Keira Knightly was really the only reason I saw to go see it.  Is that sad or what?
 :twisted:
16046  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worlds of Warcraft - An Introspective on: July 12, 2004, 12:20:30 PM
So, Tim and I got into the Worlds of Warcraft Beta over the weekend.  First off I wanted to see if anyone from CG has made it in so we can adventure together, but second I wanted to really commend Blizzard for making the first MMO that never felt like a treadmill.  I'm level 14, almost 15 and I'm still enjoying it as much as when I started.  With the quest system, the pets, the tradeskills, and the sheer scale of the game I just don't find this to be 'more of the same' as I did with other games in recent memory. (Lineage II comes directly to mind)  

I'm casting my support to Blizzard, congratulations....you've got the formula, and my 12.95 when the game goes retail!
16047  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Spam Spam Spam! on: July 12, 2004, 12:16:31 PM
I've heard that there is a consortium being formed that thinks that they can crush out spammers in the next two years.   They were talking about it on the radio but didn't cite their source.   Anyone heard of this or is it a bunch of hot air?

It sounds like a lofty goal to me, these spammers are crafty little bastards.
16048  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / USA Network - The 4400 - Anyone see it? on: July 12, 2004, 12:11:31 PM
I saw the commercials but I couldn't get a good grip on what this show is actually about...is it just that complicated?  I don't want to have to take notes when I watch TV. slywink
16049  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 Confirmed for E3 2005 on: July 12, 2004, 12:09:23 PM
Looks like E3 2005 will be the big year to show off the PS3 according to my sources.  I imagine that we are going to see the unleashing of a ton of info on the next Xbox and Nintendo's "Revolution" system in the next few days as a result.
16050  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What would you do if there were no video games? on: July 10, 2004, 03:32:39 AM
Belgedin knows what I'd do if there were no video games, I'd go back to teaching Martial Arts. smile
16051  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Circuit City Clearance 4.99 games on: July 08, 2004, 08:50:03 PM
I'm in AZ but they closed the one near me (PV Mall).  Anyone find a copy of ORTA for me? Pleeeease?
16052  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many finished games in the first half of this year? on: July 07, 2004, 10:49:47 PM
Kingdom Hearts was a game I never got back to.  I still have it but the thought of 'leveling up' so I can beat the Cerberus turned me off.  Especially the damned Gummy-ride to get there. :/
16053  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / musicplasma on: July 07, 2004, 10:48:33 PM
Whoa, that is cool.  Their discography has been pretty accurate on most of the things I've put in too.    Some of the recommendations are a little odd (Six Degrees of Seperation between Depeche Mode and Britney Spears) but still that is pretty cool.  I'm gonna check out some albums that they recommended, so they accomplished their goal. smile  Pretty smart way of getting folks to buy through your Amazon link!
16054  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Spiderman Sells 2 million on: July 07, 2004, 07:56:02 PM
Thats the PR spin.  If EB purchases the games, they are purchased as far as Activision is concerned.  They are stating it (and everyone does) from their own perspective.  Think of it this way, if you are selling apples and some vendor comes by and picks up 50 apples, as far as you are concerned you just sold 50 apples...what they do afterwards is no concern of yours.  Its a weak analogy, but what can ya do? slywink

But its good of you to read through the hype!  Never trust what you read! </conspiracy>
16055  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Combat Elite: WWII Paratroopers on: July 07, 2004, 07:47:09 PM
Nope, its in this months OXM.
16056  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many finished games in the first half of this year? on: July 07, 2004, 07:42:46 PM
I've learned to function without sleep.  Sincerely, I will sit down for 10-15 minutes and play when I get home just to detox from work and school.  That usually means I play through one mission of Front Mission 4 or something and then put the game away.  It takes a great deal of restraint.  Eventually the game is finished.

That said, when a review is pending, I'll block time to churn through the game to review it.  It make mean several smaller blocks or a few larger blocks, but its all about time management. (but its mostly the 'not sleeping' thing.)
16057  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Combat Elite: WWII Paratroopers on: July 07, 2004, 03:57:42 PM
I read a magazine review that said something kinda funny about the game: "Why is there no parachuting in a game with Paratroopers in the title?"
16058  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many finished games in the first half of this year? on: July 07, 2004, 03:56:49 PM
Don't get your hopes up on Pandora Tomorrow...the ending cinema is rather anticlimactic.  Oh well, at least the gameplay rocks. smile
16059  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many finished games in the first half of this year? on: July 07, 2004, 03:29:04 PM
Its sick but I'll start with the 20+

I sincerely try to finish every game I play.
16060  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Resident Evil movie trailer on: July 07, 2004, 12:39:24 PM
I dug that El, thanks!  I was pretty impressed with the first RE:A trailer, pretty good on the spook factor there.  I also share your concern for the crapitudinal factor for this next flick.   Lets hope that the special effects are much improved, that "licker" beast really sucked.
16061  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mega Man X: Command Mission - RPG BATTLES!? on: July 07, 2004, 04:13:10 AM
Why did Mega Man sound like a chain smoker?  Or am I thinking of the Nintendo Power cartoon....
16062  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What current consoles do you own? on: July 06, 2004, 03:50:04 PM
Ok, I'll bite...why the 3 Xboxes?  LAN parties?
16063  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Panza Kickboxing? on: July 06, 2004, 03:15:39 PM
That is such a horrible title....K-1 World Grand Prix = Car racing!  What marketing knucklehead thought that up??
16064  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Circuit City Clearance 4.99 games on: July 05, 2004, 09:45:09 PM
Its always 30 bucks when I find it!  Its good, but its not THAT good. (IMHO)
16065  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Circuit City Clearance 4.99 games on: July 05, 2004, 07:07:37 PM
If ANYONE can find me Panzer Dragoon I'd gladly pay you back if you could pick it up.  I've never managed to find the thing for a decent price...
16066  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Panza Kickboxing? on: July 05, 2004, 03:49:01 PM
What ever happened to kickboxing games?  I had Panza Kickboxing on my Amiga 500 way back when, but I've never seen a good kickboxing game on platform.  Am I missing one out there?

Yea, we only played a few rounds and 1/2 of them team members lost their connections.  I'd call it a tie as the two rounds where everyone stayed connected I won one and Tim won one.  There will be a rematch....
16070  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Happy 4th of July! on: July 04, 2004, 04:25:14 PM
Hate to break it to you Loren, but X-Files never came to mind when I saw your username. slywink  

Happy 4th my friend.

I'm online and hosting right now.  THe wife sprang a surprise party on me and bought me a grill.  So I've been grillin like a villan.  Now I'm going to take a break from that to rough you guys up for a little while. smile

Well, with the shindig beginning to wind down, lets plan to get together in about two hours. (Its almost 6:00pm PST)  Cool?
16073  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KOTOR 2 Shots on: July 03, 2004, 02:24:44 PM
You better cut it out with that Jade GARDEN stuff....I know one of the programmers reads this forum. slywink  

The thing that impressed me the most was how seamlessly you could bounce between a hard martial arts style, then whip off a few magic spells, then finish them off with a swipe of the sword.   I played the game for an hour at a private meeting with Bioware during E3 (no cameras allowed. frown  ) and I never felt like I was fighting the system or the controls.
16074  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KOTOR 2 Shots on: July 03, 2004, 01:55:45 PM
You'll really dig Jade Empire then, they have put so much effort into that game.  Best Action/RPG hybrid I've seen in a long time.

16076  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Brooke Burke KINDA hot?!?!? on: July 01, 2004, 08:51:13 PM
In my opinion, Brooke Burns is hotter than Brooke Burke.  Granted, I think I'll have to just block out that she is dating Bruce "Hudson Hawk" Willis.
