I'm pretty sure that you get 1080p over VGA as well. If your tv has a vga port, it would be an option for you.

Sorry to here about your loss. I know how you feel. Our 16 year old mixed breed is reaching the end of the road.  We thought this weekend was probably going to be the end for him but he seems to have bounced back somewhat. Our oldest son heard us talking about putting him down and was in tears all morning.  icon_cry

I've tried learning this about 5 times. Maybe if I discovered it before we had kids, I would have taken the time to learn it. Now I need gaming that isn't so demanding. If they add graphics, I'll give it another shot.

Wow, I'm going to go check my Toys R us today to see if that deal is going on here too. Of course, my store has a horrible video game selection and never get anything in remotely close to release dates. I'm sure they will have one copy at this price.

I finally found a copy of this at Best Buy tonight.  My son and I then went over to Gamestop and bought a couple of theme decks and a few boosters. I played 4 games with the starter deck against the AI. I lost 2 and won 2. All I can say is what a great game. My son and I had a blast. We will probably try a game against each other tomorrow now that we have a basic understanding of the rules.  Another few games and I may be ready to jump online.
329  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/29) on: October 30, 2007, 02:02:40 AM
Manhunt 2 if it gets decent reviews.  Hellgate when it drops in price probably.  With COD4, Mass Effect and Mario Galaxies on the horizon. I should save some money. If I ever see a copy of Eye of Judgement, I'll have to pick that up though. My Amazon order isnt scheduled to arrive until December.  icon_frown
330  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Eye of Judgment out Oct 24 - card-based game (think Magic) for the PS3 on: October 27, 2007, 07:11:09 PM
No copies around here for me. I went to two gamestops. They only got one per store.  My best buy said they were supposed to get 4 but none arrived as scheduled. Also, no luck at Target, Wal-mart,Kmart, Circuit City or Miejers. I ended up ordering from Amazon. My son is wanting to play this pretty bad as well. I should have ordered another deck. Guess I'll hit some stores next week for boosters.  Keep the impressions coming.  icon_biggrin

Damn, I've spent way too much money this month already but this may be too good to pass up.  Maybe I can hold out long enough to convince myself that I don't want to get sucked into another collectible type game. I know I will weaken though as I see impressions posted.

I ordered one of these from Buy.com for a christmas or birthday present for my son. After using the $10.00 google checkout coupon, it made it  a great deal at $89 shipped.
333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 owners only please [BC question] on: October 07, 2007, 04:41:16 PM
I've played Persona 3, God of War II, Final Fantasy 12, Digital Devil Saga 1,  and several others. I've probably spent more time on PS 2 games than PS3 games. I think it was worth buying one before the price drops just to get the BC option.

I

I've never liked the Flood.  They always seem like an ammo suck to me.  I was actually not minding them in this game until Level 8.  I can't tell you how much ammo I wasted before I decided to just run for it.  The Flood seemed to continuously regenerate.  There was no end.  Also, those spikey bastards on the walls were a royal pain in the ass.  If you didn't have the right kind of weapon, forget it.  Blowing up the ship was a lot of hopping around.  Then when I got to the new Halo and had to climb the tower, I was still in run-it mode, not realizing that I had to switch gears back to slow and methodical.  The Flood went back to being as annoying as ever.



Gotta agree with you there. I found myself just wanting to get through level 8. Luckily, I thought the last bits made up for it. I enjoyed every part of the game except level 8. Running through a level just wasnt that much fun for me.

I remember sneaking into Mom's closet and finding christmas presents. I unwrapped one and it was ET. I played it and wrapped it back up while my parents were out of the house. I didn't tell Mom that for at least 15 years after the fact. I felt too guilty about it.  icon_biggrin

I got the patch for laser blast. I can't remember what the score was but I know it took hours to do. I also remember my Dad preordering Pac Man from JC Penneys. Lots of good memories associated with that console. Probably more than any since for me.

Quote from: malichai11 of Octopus Overlords
Well, my wife and I just loaded it up on our 16:9 screen. The lobby and everything is 16:9, but when we start a co-op game it goes to a 4:3 image, split-screen, so a large chunk of the screen isn't used. If this is how they implemented same-screen multiplayer, I'm going to be furious. I can't find any options to change it either.

Quote from: malichai11 of Octopus Overlords
With 4 players it uses the full screen. With 2 players it uses a 4:3 window only. With 3 players it uses the full screen for the bottom half where 2 players play, but the top half of the screen has the image centered, but uses only the width of a 4:3 image.

I'm not pleased.

Can anyone here verify if this is in fact true, or if there is a settings issue that needs to be corrected?  I'd really hate to see my MP experience with my wife to be marred or rendered completely unplayable by such a poor design flaw. 

Well, I tried to play some co-op with my son last night and that appears to be what happens. It pretty much ruined the experience for us. Maybe me will get used to it but after playing on a widescreen tv for so long it is kind of difficult to do.  I couldn't find a setting to change this. If anyone does, I'd love to hear about it.

How is that a disappointment?  All they are trying to is preserve the aspect ratio.  It's actually better than halo2 or gears in hd on the 360 where it would split the screen down the middle vertically.  In that case you had no peripheral vision, and you couldn't see anything despite the fact you have a 16:9 screen.  I'll gladly let some of the screen not be used to have the view that I'd have on single player.


Personal preference I suppose.  I prefer Gears of War and even Resistance to how it is handled in Halo 3.  It just seems a little jarring to have the screen size cut down so much after playing the single player campaign. Like I said maybe I'll get used to it. I agree that you lose some peripheral vision in other games with co-op but in Halo the screen feels squashed and for myself it was difficult to play. My son felt the same way.

And now it appears there is some kind of network log in problem. I haven't been able to log in since late this afternoon. It appears to be a wide spread problem on the official boards. Maybe they have the servers down or something.

Love the game - the Zones mode is my favorite.  I like how you get bonus points for things you do, like protecting a base (finally!  Us people that protect the flag on CTF games get some added points for once!), killing X amount of enemies & X amount of land vehicles in a Warhawk, etc.

But that takes me to something that I'm really NOT liking - the lag or lack of stats being recorded.  The last two days I've played around 30 if not more games.  Yet, it says that the last time I've been online playing was Sep 1 and it hasn't recorded any of my games since.  You could give the argument of, "Well, it's only a game..." but with a game like Warhawk, it's (at least for me) pretty essential that my stats are accurately reflected.

So anyway, aside from being super pissed about some KILLER games not being recorded, I'm really enjoying Warhawk.


I'm having the same stat problem. I've played a bunch the last two days with no update. None of my ribbons or badges show up either. Also, its a real pain to try and get on a ranked server. Just not enough of them I suppose.

I enjoyed Resistance: Fall of Man  and Motorstorm was pretty good as well.  The F1 game was good if you are in to that type of racing. I wouldnt recommend it to a non F1 fan though. MLB 07 is  good if your into baseball.  If your not opposed to buying another PS2 game, I say pick up Persona 3 before it gets hard to find. Its a great game and is taking up my time on the PS3 more than my actual PS3 games.

I just picked it up at Best Buy and pricematched the CC price.  I get tired of dealing with CC's videogame section (even if by some mircale it's on the floor on release day then it's always locked up in a cabinet necessitating wandering around the store to find a redshirt who can get it out of the cabinet for me).  Plus with BB I can get it added to my Reward Zone points. 

+1

I went to circuit city after work because it was closer to my job. Of course, they have none on the shelf. I ask random redshirt number one if they have the game. He looks at the shelf and tells me they don't have any. Im sure they were in the back so I went to the service desk and wait for about 10 minutes. Nobody shows up so I leave and grab a copy of the ad on my way out. I went to Best Buy and price matched it.  I don't know why I waste my time with CC. I'm always disappointed with them.

The first season is a bit rough but no worse than the first season of Star Trek The Next Generation. It really takes off after that. It is my favorite Science Fiction series of all time. Really good stuff. I payed full price for all the seasons and I don't regret it a bit.
