IUP staff marches on CNET HQ:

NICELY done, 1UP.

I have been down on 1Up a lot lately, but I have to give them major props for this move-very classy.

I don't know if classy is the right word, but still pretty cool. CNet seems to have more cute girls working for them though. smile

I just thought everyone might like to know what words you're now greeted with when you attempt a personal review of Kane and Lynch at GS.

"Kane & Lynch User Reviews Are Currently Disabled

Whether Jeff Gerstmann was or wasn't dismissed because of his review of this game, the fact is I've now been censored from providing a review. I'm done with them!

To be fair it's because people are trashing it just because of what happened.

Your credit card expiring doesn't help. Mine expired and then one day I turned on my 360 for the first time and I couldn't do anything. The only option was to renew my subscription. There is a way to revert to silver, but it looked like a pain in the ass so I just renewed gold. MS makes the process a pain in the ass and suckers like me fall for it.

Here's another one.


Grabbed these off a Russian LJ page. Babelfish translated the only text there as "House of Tunnel".

All praise to google.

A quote from one of the sites: "This extraordinary structure on Montrose Boulevard took motorists by surprise. A pair of artists, Dan Havel and Dean Ruck was responsible for this house installation. The two wooden buildings were to be replaced by a new built project so the few months before the demolition, they made this into an architectonic installation."

HAH!  I will have to go by there at lunch Monday.  My girlfriend a few years ago used to live right up the way from that place.

It sounds like it isn't there anymore, the building were up for destruction at the time it says.
2296  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Some things are a bit ridiculous if you stop and think about them on: November 25, 2007, 02:18:12 AM
Kind of flawed logic. We may be waterproof, but walking around rain soaked would severely lower our immune system. Why do you think you are cold and miserable when you are out in the rain? Your body is telling you that it doesn't like the conditions. Water extracts heat for your body so you are constantly using energy to keep warm.

As far as your refrigerator logic, start putting all your food outside instead, have fun with that.
2297  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Quick Morality Quiz From Time Magazine on: November 25, 2007, 01:17:57 AM
These kind of quizs really don't mean much. In the reality of the situation your thinking would be much different than how it is to just be sitting here in front of a screen. You can say you would smoother the baby all you want, but if it really came down to it, I don't think any of us would know how we would react.

I was hoping for much more of an interesting quiz coming from ATB. Abortion, capital punishment issues or something juicy. smile

I just know that when people do stay respectful, some of the most interesting discussion can come out of these kinds of subjects, even if at the end nobody has convinced the other side to defect.

When has one side EVER convinced the other side when it comes to politics or religion?

That's not really the point. It's fun to argue sometimes, and you often learn more about other's ideas and are forced to research your own beliefs more in order to argue them. A Christian will never convert me but they can give me stuff to think about and force me to think outside of the way I currently think. You learn from discussing/debating opposite viewpoints, that is the point.

About 10 hours in here, too, and I agree with GatorFavre and Torfish.  I can't find a negative in the game.

I can. Some of the motion controls suck. When your steering Mario on a ball, I would much rather use the analog stick than try to move the wiimote like one. I am finding with the Wii, most games that try to utilize precise tilt sensing tend to annoy me. I like the IR aiming and non-precise gesture waving of the Wiimote much better than imprecise tilt sensing. Playing the first ball level ticked me off enough to send me running back to Assassin's Creed.

(I still think SMG is superb otherwise, and it's not like getting ticked at a Mario game hasn't happened with EVERY other title too! smile )

I loved that world... frown

Same here, I wasnt a big fan of the ray surfing however.

Surfing was fun once I got the hang of it. And I loved the ball world and thought the controls were pretty good myself.

Now Rocky Road? I hate that level and still haven't finished it. I have been so close but I always panic and make a bad jump.

Scramble eggs, add salsa and mix. Fry egg, add salsa. Don't over think it Jeff. smile

4 months? I wouldn't eat it.

Edit: And eggs and salsa isn't weird at all, isn't it extremely common?

I bought it am I am having a hard time getting into (hence only on mission 3). Nothing seems to stand out about it, it's very bland so far, but I really need to give it more of a chance.

One of the reviews I read (Gamespot I think it was) said the animations were great. NO they are not, they are horrible.

Mine showed up today in the mail.  On the third mission so far.  It's been so easy a 5 year old could win without losses.  Hoping it gets challenging.  It makes the demo level look like Diablo in Hell slywink

Any RPG elements at all? Anything? Please?

Camera fixed so you can rotate more than a few degrees?

Jump to action option for the enemies turn?

(In other words tell me the demo is not a good representation of the full game.)

Can't say I am surprised, I really don't like Tilted Mills games and was quite disappointed to see they were getting their hands on the classic. I wanted to want this game, but the Games For Windows preview I read a few months ago turned me off even more.

I wish they would go back to basics, as in an improved SC2000.
2319  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 12, 2007, 03:21:59 PM
I am hoping it's not like Adavaned Wars at all. AW has a puzzle feel to it, you need the right commander with the right units done in the correct sequence to win it. I am hoping for a more free form game where there is no right way to finish a mission.

Quote from: Frogstar on November 12, 2007, 02:51:02 PM

Here's another example.  A few weeks ago, I read a forum post where the poster, applauding Panzer Tactics' potential superiority over other military sims, said something to this effect: "I've waited years for a turn-based military sim that uses a hex-based map instead of the grid crap!  That really opens things up in terms of strategy."

I'm not certain what that means.  But I do know that the hexes used in Panzer Tactics are not exciting to me.  In fact, had I not read that post, I don't know that I would have ever thought about them at all.

Hexes provide a more realistic movement than squares is all. It takes 2 steps to move diagonal in a square based system compared to 1 for a hex system for example. Any serious wargame uses hexes. I still doubt that this game is too indepth, but hopefully it's a a good Panzer General II knock off.
