4361  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Creepiest Games - No Spoilers Please on: January 24, 2005, 10:08:54 PM
Silent Hill is way up on the list, IMO.  There may be creepier games out there, but as stiffler mentioned, the kiddies with knives are pretty intense.  Another one not on the list is Gabriel Knight 2 - there were certain sections that were very very creepy... that game did a great job of constantly building the sense of dread.

I saw this being sold now for $30, so those that missed it when it came out should be able to get it cheaper.

Where please?

For someone who doesn't like an innocuous comment like this:
I never thought he was that hard.

You make a couple of incendiary comments like this:
Don't brag about being faster than somebody old enough to be your father. I am far better than you at many things that are much more important than a game battle.

Apparently nobody is ever happy with them, either that or they are so succesful that they just keep coming

It's the latter - Like traditional sports games, every version sells very well at the beginning.  But once the new version comes out, everyone dumps the old one and buys the new one to get new rosters, moves, features, etc.  It was really bad in the N64/PSX days, as there were three US wrestling federations (not to mention all the Japan imports) with games coming out every year, and unlike other sports games which are essentially the same across platforms, there are different titles for each individual console.  So yeah, it adds up to a lot of wrestling titles smile

Well, you're welcome to your opinion smile  But that has zero impact as to whether the movie will actually be any good or not (which was my point in the first place...)  I tend to think it'll be the latter, as all I've heard anyone say about it is OMG ALBA SP00000!!!11

On a similar note, has anyone tried one of those upscaling DVD players?  Just wondering if they provide any noticeable improvement, or if it's just a gimmick.

Nope.  They didn't bother me in the original RE, and they don't bother me here.  Occasionally I'll wish for the ability to sidestep, but it's a very minor complaint.

When i did this mission, i used the cabnits to block off the windows down stairs.  that made it pretty easy to do because it limited the ammount of zombies that could come after me.... at least for a little while.

Yeah, I didn't realize I could push the cabinets until *after* I had beat that section. That would definitely make things easier.  As well as running upstairs once things get a little hairy inside - that way you can kick one dude and knock a half dozen down the stairs, giving you a little more time

I'm curious to know if there is a noticable difference between DVD players that have progressive scan and ones that don't. I have one without it, and the other day a friend was over at my place and I was showing him my plasma screen TV and he mentioned that I should get a progressive scan DVD player.

Opinions anyone?

That's like saying "I have a 4.0Ghz Pentium 4.  Should I upgrade my Voodoo 2 video card?" smile

With an expensive TV like that, you're doing yourself a great disservice by not feeding it a progressive component (or DVI or HDMI) signal.

Have you calibrated your set with Avia Guide to Home Theater (or something similar?)  I have yet to see a TV that looks good out of the box without some major tweaking.

I'm up to 2-3, and while I'm really enjoying it, I miss the slower, methodical pace of the old RE games... I still have RE:0 and RE: CV to finish as well, so I can at least get my old school fix that way smile

I have some Energy speakers that run about as much as the Paradigms, and they are excellent.  I haven't A/B'ed them with Paradigms, so I can't say which are better, but they're much better than the Infinity speakers that they replaced.
4390  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Got my iPod Shuffle today on: January 17, 2005, 10:23:53 PM
I'm not so sure about that... I've heard similar "information, but my experience has been different - I've worked on DV (which requires significantly higher throughput than a few audio files) from an external hard drive both with USB 2.0 and Firewire connections, and haven't noticed any significant speed difference.

Some quick googling shows that just because a product is branded USB 2.0 doesn't mean it offers the full 480Mbps throughput.

Quote from: "Fireball1244"
Just got it when I got home from work today. Very nice packaging, typical of Apple. It came charged at least partially. It's taking a few minutes to transfer over 512 MB of music, which is much slower than a regular iPod, but something to expect, given that this is running via USB and not FireWire.

It's not USB 2.0?  :shock:

Edit: Or I guess you could only have USB 1.1 on your computer...

Yup smile  And the original Marathon, if you grab M1A1 -

Man for all the bluster about XBox game sales this winter... it looks like they got crushed by PS2.

What did you expect?  The PS2 has an install base several times that of the Xbox.  The fact that they managed to place two games in the top ten, despite a much smaller base, is very impressive.  And the console itself has been outselling both the PS2 and the GC for the past two months at least.

Quote from: "stiffler"
I am a packrat and have a fantastic compulsion to collect things.  I know I couldn't simply get rid of them myself, but I often wonder what would happen if something horrible happened and I lost all of my silly baubles.  I have an unhealthy DVD collection and more console games than I will ever play and I am just thrilled knowing they are there.  I like to think my curse would be lifted if I had to start all over, but I am not so sure.

I'd definitely see it as a blessing - of sorts.  At least for me - I've often thought about just getting rid of all my various media and focusing on something completely different.  I could build an awesome home studio if I sold all my games/music/movies, and part of me would much rather be creating, rather than using someone else's creations.

Bea Arthur was on the Golden Girls and Maude....she never lived in Mayberry. I'm going with one of the cast members from Friends...either Phoebe or Chandler...unfortunately it won't be Joey.

Er... you're not really using bar chords there, per se... you'd use your index finger to bar the top four strings on the fifth fret for the first three chord shapes.  The index finger doesn't move until the fourth chord (the 4/2/3/2 shape).  Then you'd simply move the index finger down to the second fret and bar the top four strings again.
