16281  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Console Gold's Future - The Poll on: June 17, 2004, 06:06:37 PM
No matter which way we go it'd be a seperate domain I'd imagine.  You won't find PC stuff on CG.
16282  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Console Gold's Future - The Poll on: June 17, 2004, 06:05:47 PM
Well then I'm glad to have said it.  We are not trying to take anything away from GG.  Hell, there is no way that I could really.  Rich has a magnetism that pulls people in, I really can't even say I understand how it works.  I know that Mary Jo cooked waffles for Rich for breakfast one day.  I know that Rich watches football and has a young son.  I know the details of his injuries.  I know his friends and I know the kinda games he likes to play.  I know more about Rich LaPorte than I know about some of my co-workers!

All that said, name ONE webmaster that you have that level of REAL connection.  If you can name even ONE I'd be surprised.  I couldn't emulate/take that even if I wanted to.
16283  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Console Gold's Future - The Poll on: June 17, 2004, 05:43:36 PM
Well, not to worry.  This isn't a 'next week' expansion.  This is a probably next year sometime timeframe.  There is a LOT of things that I want to do with CG.  Not to worry...this is just very long range planning.

As for the PC, I don't want to compete with Rich.  Don't get that idea in your head.  I want to make something that is doing the things that they are not.  I don't ever want to have people think that I used Rich as some sort of spring board and now I want to somehow bury his site.
16284  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Snowblind *was* Deus Ex: Clan Wars on: June 17, 2004, 04:44:18 PM
Ok.  Here is the deal.  I spoke with my contacts again to confirm.  There is absolutely ZERO connection between the two titles.  Both titles are being developed completely separately.  Ion Storm, Crystal Dynamics, and Eidos have all seen the article and nobody is bothering with it.  Why fight rampant and unsubstantiated rumor speculation?   I don’t blame them…we all know that fighting on the internet is fairly pointless.
16285  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Madonna Name Change? on: June 17, 2004, 03:30:42 PM
I heard on the radio that Madonna is changing her name to Esther, but I can't find any truth to it on the net..  Anyone? (Not that I really care)
16286  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Console Gold's Future - The Poll on: June 17, 2004, 03:29:16 PM
Console Gold is going to expand.  Where would you like to see the site expand next?
16287  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Snowblind *was* Deus Ex: Clan Wars on: June 17, 2004, 02:08:33 PM
Tell ya what, now that this story has 'broken', I'm going to call my reps this morning when they get into the office.  I'll re-confirm and then post.  Granted, if they change their tune we will have an angry conversation at that point. smile
16288  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Snowblind *was* Deus Ex: Clan Wars on: June 17, 2004, 01:59:22 PM
Fair enough.  If that was your attempt, your delivery sucks.   :wink:

I did take the time though, this simply is not true.

Maybe a real journalist from ConsoleGold can get to the bottom of this?
What the hell is THAT supposed to mean?  It doesn't get much more 'real journalistic' than what I did.  I went directly to the source (developers) and then doublechecked my source with the publisher.  On top of that, I gave a shout to my PR rep to triple check it since there was so much conversation about it.  There is no possible way that Ion Storm would just hand their most precious series to another development house.  Especially with Deus Ex: Invisible War not turning out as good of number as they would have hoped.  They would want that in-house to make sure it doesn't happen again.

As for HomeLan and all the other sites that will regurgitate this same news post...think for a second.  Where might they be getting that from?  Oh, I dunno...Gamespot perhaps?
16290  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Snowblind *was* Deus Ex: Clan Wars on: June 17, 2004, 01:47:17 PM
Oh sure...I'm sure Ion Storm just HANDED Deus Ex to Crystal Dynamics.

Just because Gamespot printed it doesn't make it true.  This counts double when it flies in the face of all reason.

there are never any good ones until the console's been out a year, IMO.
You'll get no argument here, I purchased my PS2 a year after it came out.

I wonder if it'll see the light of day given that Game X Copy just got slapped with a lawsuit.

Yea, when I saw that I called my MS rep.  We had a good laugh.

Good times...good times...

I doubt they would launch in 2005, but if they push the backwards compatability angle it might be viable.  The money is in the software....

You are not mistaken, we did have hardware reviews on the site.  We have not revamped that section of the site yet.  I will gladly answer any question you might have as I've used the thing since prototype versions.

First I've heard of it.  I could take it seriously if they got that ball wet beforehand.  Have you ever been hit by a wet dodgeball?  No, not the big fun ones, I'm talking about the little handsized ones.  Welts and bruises....ah, the staples of childhood.

Yea, that whole "next gen" thing irritates me.  Depending on who is using it it could mean this crop or the next.

Are you a PS2 guy, an Xbox guy, a Cube guy, GBA only, or some combination therein?

Yea, Thandi Newton has a seat reserved right next to Halle Berry (sp?) on the rocket to be shot into the sun.

BritneySpears14: I slip out of my pants, just for you, bloodninja.
bloodninja: Oh yeah, aight. Aight, I put on my robe and wizard hat.
BritneySpears14: Oh, I like to play dress up.
bloodninja: Me too baby.
BritneySpears14: I kiss you softly on your chest.
bloodninja: I cast Lvl. 3 Eroticism. You turn into a real beautiful woman.
BritneySpears14: Hey...
bloodninja: I meditate to regain my mana, before casting Lvl. 8 Cock of the Infinite.
BritneySpears14: Funny I still don't see it.
bloodninja: I spend my mana reserves to cast Mighty F*ck of the Beyondness.
BritneySpears14: You are the worst cyber partner ever. This is ridiculous.
bloodninja: Don't f*ck with me bitch, I'm the mightiest sorcerer of the lands.
bloodninja: I steal yo soul and cast Lightning Lvl. 1,000,000 Your body explodes into a fine bloody mist, because you are only a Lvl. 2 Druid.
BritneySpears14: Don't ever message me again you piece of shit.
bloodninja: Robots are trying to drill my brain but my lightning shield inflicts DOA attack, leaving the robots as flaming piles of metal.
bloodninja: King Arthur congratulates me for destroying Dr. Robotnik's evil army of Robot Socialist Republics. The cold war ends. Reagan steals my accomplishments and makes like it was cause of him.
bloodninja: You still there baby? I think it's getting hard now.
bloodninja: Baby?
16303  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Chronicles of Riddick Movie on: June 12, 2004, 10:04:43 PM
You would be correct.  There is also an Anime that I've not seen, it fits in somewhere, and then there will be a sequel to Chronicles of Riddick.

16305  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Chronicles of Riddick Movie on: June 12, 2004, 09:38:23 PM
Well, it is certainly a sequel as the girl who was posing as a guy (Jack) is in this one, but older..and really good looking. smile
16306  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Chronicles of Riddick Movie on: June 12, 2004, 01:45:15 PM
Its not a Prequel, its a sequel.  Listen to the beginning part again: "Its been five years....I knew they'd come looking for me" or somesuch.
16307  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Chronicles of Riddick Movie on: June 11, 2004, 04:40:25 PM
Oh definately, it sets up the bridge between the game and the previous movie quite nicely.  Very well handled.  It also sets up for a sequel. smile

Don't get me wrong, if you liked Pitch Black at ALL you need to go see this movie.  For the casual movie person though, ehh....its still a good action flick, but don't pay full price if you haven't seen Pitch Black.

Hit the front page, no recall folks.

I.E.
A bird in the hand...
(next post) ...is just a dead bird.
16311  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Chronicles of Riddick Movie on: June 11, 2004, 12:10:23 PM
Ok, so I just got back from a screening of The Chronicles of Riddick.  Here is the skinny:

I'd say its a 2.5-3 stars out of 5 movie.

It falls down in terms of really capturing the atmosphere that made Pitch Black cool.  There isn't the always-present monsters to push the movie.  The Necromongers are cool and all but they are honestly underused.  Really the whole movie is bits of quick backstory that never really adjusts the lenses to focus on a select few.  It leaves you not caring too much about the cast and their fate.

All that said, most of the special effects are fantastic. (Although admittedly some are not)  The fight scenes are equally impressive (a particular spin hook kick by a chick in the movie comes to mind) and really keep you coming back.  If you are a fan of Pitch Black you'll undoubtedly reconnect with Riddick and enjoy hearing a whole lot about his past.  If you haven't seen Pitch Black, you might find yourself a little lost on this one.  

Final word on the movie: Rental, or if you have to see it on the big screen turn off your brain and hit the matinee.  Although, a quick scan of RottenTomatoes reveals that Pitch Black scored similarly.  Overall I thought the movie was fun, but mired in its own rush to explain too much.

I'll answer any questions anyone has...

Well, Sony may be the 'runaway leader' but I find that it gets far less love that my Xbox.  FSW, Riddick, Fable, Halo 2, HL2, Vampire (rumored), EA Sports on Live, etc. etc.  Its going to be an interesting holiday...
16313  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Next Nintendo console VGA compatible out of the box. on: June 10, 2004, 12:28:25 PM
Well, based on my reaction you can see the cards on the table...I've heard a rumor...

I honestly don't see them going back to carts though.  Maybe the next one won't look like a purse with Playskool controllers.
16314  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Next Nintendo console VGA compatible out of the box. on: June 10, 2004, 04:01:50 AM
Well, the carts caused N64 games to be 64.99 compared to 49.99.  I can only expect it'll be even more expensive as technology has improved and the required amount of memory required on each cart will be higher.  Nintendo...please prove me wrong.
16315  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Next Nintendo console VGA compatible out of the box. on: June 10, 2004, 02:55:34 AM
Back to carts?  Sigh...that means back to high prices.
16316  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Thief: Deadly Shadows Review on: June 10, 2004, 02:53:56 AM
Yea, that fix will go into the PC version I'm sure, but the Xbox version will remain broken I suspect.
