Anyone else see the awesome 5-part movie on this title?!  Hooooly smokes!
Halloween can't get here fast enough...
16044  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So... uhm... anyone have a 2 month Live trial? :) on: August 05, 2004, 04:52:59 PM
Nah, you don't sound like a jerk.  When my MS rep gets in this morning I'll make a call...
16045  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So... uhm... anyone have a 2 month Live trial? :) on: August 05, 2004, 04:23:13 PM
I'll scrounge around and see if I have one.

Well, then chop chop with the next quote slappy!   :wink:
16047  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Doom 3 Xbox or PC? on: August 05, 2004, 01:48:22 PM
Thanks goes out to Tim for pointing this out:

Seems that this little config tweak would help those of us with copious amounts of RAM to run the game better. smile
16048  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game on: August 05, 2004, 01:40:31 PM
That'd be Bad Santa.

My quote(s):

"Why do you want to drive a cab?"
"I can't sleep at nights."
"There's porno theaters for that."
16049  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Doom 3 Xbox or PC? on: August 04, 2004, 09:19:57 PM
I'd say the game is a good blend of System Shock and Half Life, I'd not miss that just because I don't have a rig that can run it.
16050  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / AARRGGHH!!! Why Midway?!? Why? on: August 04, 2004, 06:07:12 PM
The new Mortal Kombat - AttaKK of the Klones (or whatever it's kalled)
Lets try.....Mortal Kombat: Deception.  Yep, that works. smile
16051  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / AARRGGHH!!! Why Midway?!? Why? on: August 04, 2004, 03:31:45 PM
Probably a license issue....

Question: What did you do in the military before you became a civie like the rest of us? Or is that classified?

Hmmm, I had two jobs while in the military, one I can talk about (Worked in IT for RED HORSE on a Nuke base and a Fighter base) and one that I can't talk about. smile  I enjoyed both.  

Question: Has your life changed for the better since the inception of Console Gold?

Hmm....changed for the better?  Well, I find that I've learned a lot about people, business, management, and life in general since Console Gold kicked off.  That knowledge will serve me well in my life I think.  I'm sure I don't need to tell you how much time this takes though, this could easily be a full time job.  I'd love for it to become one....
16053  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Doom 3 Xbox or PC? on: August 04, 2004, 02:05:40 AM
By the way, for a frame of reference:

Smooth performance (just over 30fps I'd guess with the occasional hiccup down to maybe 27) on my system:

ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
768mb PC333 Corsair RAM
AMD K7 2 Ghz
1024x768 - High settings (not highest, but one notch down)
16054  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ZZZZZzzzzzZZZZzzzzz on: August 03, 2004, 04:33:54 PM
Planning to. smile
16055  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Serial ATA ? on: August 03, 2004, 03:59:55 PM
But you don't HAVE to have a SATA drive, correct?  I'm just too excited about replacing two 80 gig drives so early....
16056  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Far Cry Mod SDK released on: August 03, 2004, 03:27:58 PM
It is amazing what some people can do with these mod kits. (mods for BF1942 for instance)
16057  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Serial ATA ? on: August 03, 2004, 02:17:08 PM

That is the board I'm looking at, and it seems that it supports both, I just want to make sure I'm not gonna be the kid who gets the shiny new firetruck at Christmas only to find the damned thing didn't come with a ladder.
16058  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Far Cry Mod SDK released on: August 03, 2004, 02:15:48 PM
None taken, it has nothing to do with console gaming.

If you hadn't noticed, this is a general gaming forum.
16059  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Serial ATA ? on: August 03, 2004, 04:45:56 AM
Ok, so I'm thinking with games like Doom 3, Vampire, and Half Life 2 on the horizon I need to upgrade.  There are a ton of boards out there that have Serial ATA connections, what does that do for me with my EIDE?  Is that board completely incompatable with my current hard drives or will I just not get the performance bennies of Serial ATA?

Q: What the hell are you talking about?

I ask that question....often.  Especially here at work.  "

Q: When is the official CG Phoenix get together?

That is a good question.  What would we like to do?   I'd be cool with trekking down to AZ Mills or something for a movie / lunch kinda thing on a weekend or something.  Might be able to get quite a few of us there... (For the record, I hate the mall though)
16062  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game on: August 02, 2004, 03:51:50 PM
Sounds like it might be The Truman Show
16063  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Console Gold Interviews - Our Readership on: August 02, 2004, 02:38:01 PM
Something that Evil Avatar did back in the day that I really enjoyed was the interview with the readership of the site.  The interviews allowed us to learn a little bit about our fellow readers and they were always fun.  I'll kick this week off by interviewing myself.  Next up....lets find out!  Feel free to ask questions, that is half the fun:

Q: Who are you?
A: I'm you, you idiot.  

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
A: That isn't a question....what is wrong with you?  *sigh*  
So my real name is Ron Burke, I run Console Gold.  I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona.  I'm a full time Network Engineering student at DeVry and I work full time at an ISP called CableOne.  I'm a gamer at heart and I love the industry.  I get to work with a fantastic core of people both here at the site and also at companies like Eidos, Bethesda, Namco, Codemasters, Sammy, and more.  It has been an interesting couple of years and it just keeps getting better.   I graduate at the end of next year-ish and I fully intend to take the next step and get into the gaming industry on the IT and infrastructure side.  (You hear that Blizzard?  You NEED me for Worlds of Warcraft's infrastructure!)

Q: What is wrong with me? Did you read your own, you are all over the place.
A: Was that a question?

Q: So how about your personal life?  "Married with Children" or more like "The Bachelor"?
A: Ugh, reality TV.  What vapid airheads on those very shallow.  Oh, sorry, I digress.  I'm married and have been since 1996.  Her name is Laura and she works here at the site as the staff photographer.  Anyone who has seen some of my camera work can tell you why we need her on staff. *shudder*  She is attending Le Cordon Bleu Academy of Restaurant Management and will graduate about the same time I do.  The wife and I agreed very early on that we would not have kids until we graduate from college, so there are no Ron 2.0s running around or plans for that software revision any time in the immediate future.  Instead we have two Dalmatians, one Jack Russell Terrier, and two ferrets.  

Q: So why Console Gold?
A: That's not an easy or quick answer, but here we go:
I was a Gone Gold reader when it first kicked off.  I don't remember why I started reading but I think it had something to do with pancakes. Mmmm...pancakes.  Well, I talked with Rich a few times on the phone and via email back then and we talked about his plans to open a console gaming site with Rob Smolka of PCGamer fame at the time.   Well, it sat there for a good while with a coming soon page and I decided to give it a shot.  I didn't know the first thing about web design or the industry, so it was absolutely trial by fire.   It is amazing I got this thing off the ground at all.

We went through several iterations of graphic design to get to the one you have now, but the vision has pretty much stayed the same.  We want to bring our readers quality reviews, news that matters, and previews that aren't paid for by the highest bidder.  Its a lot of fun and a lot of work.  It is a ton of sleepless nights, but is also very rewarding.  I've gotten to meet a lot of great people and I wouldn't trade it for the world.  

Q: What? Oh sorry, I drifted off.  Can you use smaller words and speak less?
A: Uh....Napster Bad, Console Gold Good.

Q: Anything other questions you wanted to ask?
A: Nope, that about covers it.  

Q: I wasn't talking to you, I was talking to the readers...
A: Oh
16064  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Nearing completion on my website on: August 02, 2004, 01:42:28 PM
My suggestion?  Talk with the PR drone for the school and show them the site.  They are always looking for better ways of retaining new students, let them know that this isn't something you are going to drop over summer break, and then print business cards.  If you go the card route, let me know and I'll direct you to the place I use. smile
16065  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I like Sudeki on: August 02, 2004, 12:45:28 PM
Who's to say you can't?  Review it right here man!  Show us what you got! (taunt taunt poke poke)  hhehehe
16066  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Forza Motorsport on: August 02, 2004, 12:51:52 AM
I read somwhere that all of the tracks will have no repeating textures on them.
That is correct.  When you skid against a rail, the paint transfer stays forever.  Same with marks in the pavement, damage to the car, and more.   I am writing a preview on the title where I'll see if I can't shed some light on some other goodies. smile
16067  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Verdict on The Villiage? on: August 01, 2004, 05:40:12 AM
So what are we talking here?  Anyone seen it yet?
16068  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / 30 seconds, and re-enacted by bunnies on: August 01, 2004, 04:52:36 AM

I can't make this shit up...

Ok, back at it...stuntgibbon really stumped us all with that one:

"Harold, you're my lawyer, so I think you should know... I've killed quite a few people."

16072  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Batman Begins. This could be good on: July 29, 2004, 06:38:08 PM
Well as long as it isn't friggin Jim Carey or Arnie coated in Neon I'll be ok with it.  Ugh....terrible, just terrible.
16073  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game on: July 29, 2004, 05:45:06 PM
I can confirm that.  It is.  You are up!
16074  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game on: July 29, 2004, 04:11:57 PM
Why am I instantly reminded of Metal Gear?  Damned Otakon.....
16075  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game on: July 29, 2004, 04:03:38 PM
yep, Blazing Saddles it is.

Oh yea...

As they say...your mileage may vary. smile

16078  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What is in your CD (mp3) player right now? on: July 29, 2004, 02:14:57 PM
For me its Sade's Greatest Hits.

16080  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 Demo? Rumors on: July 29, 2004, 02:09:23 PM
Ok....I need sugar in my system.  I came into work at 4:15am this morning and my brain no workey.  FABLE, the other game I'm looking forward to, comes out in Sept.  Halo is indeed November 9th, as seen below:
