i think it's already been mentioned that you can play against the computer ai and that it is apparently quite good (rather than just against live people over live).

True, but this game screams multiplayer.

Just to confirm, you cannot play hotseat multiplayer on one TV, correct?

No you cannot as far as I can see.

Yes the text is small for the intro. Once you are done with the intro, no big deal.

Very fun so far. Basic game play, but one of those games that looks like it could take a lot of time to master. A majority of the game is spent trading, so it looks like it will be fun multiplayer.

Basic game play:

Each map tile has a number assigned to it, when that number is rolled everyone who has a settlement/city bordering it gets that tile's resource. The beginning of each players turn the dice are rolled. Resources are used to build new settlements/cities, roads, and buy cards.

Roads extend where you can build settlements. Settlements/cities allow you to get resources. Cards give little bonuses. Like an Army card lets you move the robber which makes any tile fertile (when that number is rolled, no one gets any resources from the tile the robber is on).

Get 10 victory points to win. Settlements= 1 point, City=2 points. Longest road=2 points IIRC. Person who uses the army card most=2 points.

So a typical turn seems to be, rolling the dice, collecting any resources for it. Decide what you want to build and then try to trade resources to get what resources you need to build what you want. Trading is a huge part of the game, in fact you spend most of your time trading.

For instances if I want to build a city (2 wheat, 3 granites) but I only have wood and sheep, I spend most of my turn trying to get players to trade me what I want.

Seems like it will be a blast multi-player.

Some girl here likes to leave her shit in the washer/dryer for half a day it seems. I removed her clothes from the dryer once and there were a lot of g-strings and bras in there. I haven't removed her clothes since. icon_confused

I didn't see a demo option. Maybe I overlooked it?

Anyway, looks good, BUT, the game locked up on me. Not that lock up is the right term, I could still move the map, check the info screens, etc, but 2 computer players traded, I got a message saying they were doing so and it just sat there for 10 minutes. Couldn't skip to my turn or anything else, finally had to turn the game off.
2327  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Triple Shot this week - Catan, Millipede, and Centipede [56k] on: May 02, 2007, 03:48:31 PM

The Wii is like a fun-loving aunt.  The PS3 is like an uncle that lets his nephew fire his shotgun.  And the Xbox 360 is like a slightly-retarded cousin - they're late, totally unreliable and constantly rips you off by asking you for money and not paying you back, but we still love him.

Just an animal folks.  You were going to eat it anyway.  And you're playing a game that has worse violence.

Except I am guessing no one ate it, which meant it died to promote a video game. Slaughtering animals, no matter what the game, does not entice me to buy it. I find it a bit sick.

And what does playing a video game with simulated violence have to do with anything?

Um... odd.  So after Brendan PMed me a link today on xbox.com to see if my console was under warranty (it wasn't), I called the Xbox folks today to see how much it would cost to repair it and... it's back under warranty.  Something happened in the span of about 8 hours, but a coffin is on it's way to me and I should get a repaired or refurbed one back free of charge.  They're also extending my XBL subscription by a month, lol.

Odd, but I'll take it.

Well one thing I quickly learned about my new phone, the included ring tones are horrible, I had to get something better. Last time I bought a phone (3 years ago), it had tons of tones, guess they don't do that anymore.

I forgot to post again, but after looking into it a bit, it looked like the funds from Money Orders are secured by the US Postal Service.

I would contact the postal inspection service and see what they can do.  Because first of all, this is mail fraud, which is nothing to sneeze at.  Then, if he committed any kind of fraud with the money order, there is that.

That's only if you bought a USPS money order.

Also, never trust USPS. In this case it wouldn't matter because the guy claims he got the envelope, but if you are going to mail money I highly recommend certified with return receipt or, better yet, registered mail.

While I normally wouldn't trust Gellar at all with RPG advice, I think he is right on here. SOA might be exactly what you are looking for.

Just be warned, it's a combat every 5' game. I really liked it, but got burnt out on the constant fighting.

I really liked Enchanted Arms on the 360. Sure it's corny, but the combat is different/neat and I enjoyed the storyline.

Feel free to narrowly define Christians as anti-gay bigots if you'd like.  Or you could, you know, research and find that you are probably just as guilty of stereotyping as the people you are accusing.

And I am ok with that, I like to give Christians some of the shit back that I get everyday. We like to be politically correct on the forums, but my real life experience are far from what I see here. I respect a lot of Christians, I would love to meet more Grunds, Griffmans, and Austins in real life, but a lot of the Christians I meet scare me. Just Thursday someone left a card on my windshield entitled "Forgivness". It has a guy, passed out carrying a hammer with Jesus behind him holding him. There is a stream of blood going between the guys legs. That's nuts in my book.

Anyway, pretty much every Christian I know thinks, gays, atheists, etc are going to hell. To me that is saying they are better than me. I need to be tormented for eternity just because I don't believe while you get to go have the good life in Heaven just because you believe? You can be the biggest scumball on the planet, but just because you believe you are entitled to some perfect world when you die? Fuck that.

It should go without saying that they do not represent the Christian faith at all. 

Maybe not, but they do say things many Christians think I bet.

Ah...

Fuck.



Well it was an incredibly stupid and ignorant thing to say.  I think that's self evident though so I won't bite further.

How so? I talk to a lot of Christians everyday, and they say far more ignorant things than I just did. Heck I hear about how Iraq/iran should be nuked daily.

I am not talking so much about everyday Christians, the ones that are about as Christian as I am. The devout guys, the ones that are pretty hard core. They do not like gay people, they think its a sin. They fear that gays being married some how affects their marriage. They don't want to be around gay people, and think that if they just found god and went to counseling that they could be straight. I have heard Christian males who really think AIDS is a punishment from god. Sure they don't go around and say "God hates faggots" but they think and say that gays are going to hell unless they change their ways. God obviously doesn't love them if he is going to punish them for eternity for their sexual preference.

On these forums we like to pretend that Christians are easy going people who mind their own business. It's just not the case in the world I live in. They are usually the bigots, not the atheists.

The actual truth is that I can't cook at all so watching the food network to me makes about as much sense as watching the travel channel.

Your logic doesn't make any sense there. If you can't cook, wouldn't it make more sense to watch the channel (assuming you wanted to learn)? If I was a chef that didn't need recipes I wouldn't watch it, but as someone who is always learning the shows can be quite helpful.

And I don't find Giada that attractive. She always comes across as some rich snobby NJ woman to me.
