If KD stops, then Corruptrelic may take over the duties. Do any of us want that? slywink
2522  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Sunday Skin Poll(redux) - Does it really belong here? on: June 15, 2007, 06:06:48 PM
Well the poll sums it all up, so I don't know why the naysayers are still talking. biggrin The 00's don't count for the negatives either (and even if they did count as negatives, the fors still win!). So going by the points system from the Poll, it's overwhelmly for the posts.

I really don't see what people are so upset about. And please stop using the "it doesn't fit in with a gaming forum" thing. 100% of the stuff in off topic doesn't fit in with a gaming forum.

Anyway, honestly, if this place gets too uptight, you will push people away. I know I came here less when the whole no-R&P thing came up. I want a loose forum myself, one that is still mature, but low on moderation.

1) Does this place have too much of a locker room vibe, where half-nude pictures and sexist comments (like mytocles mentioned) are getting thrown around enough to drive away potential forumers?
2) Do we care?

Myself, I expect and want that in the off topic forum. Off topic is a free for all on every site for the most part, even the more adult forums (not just gaming sites). What topics do you expect to see here? Just discussion of what TV set to buy or Costco's return policy? You either like off topic or you don't. If you don't then stay in the gaming section, which is mainly why I come to GT, to see everyones opinions. I come into off topic for the locker room stuff (like the LJ image thread).

Sony needs an A+++ title and they need it fast.

Aren't most new systems slow to get the games out though? The 360 went months without anything interesting. The DS beginnings were bleak. The Wii is in dire need of something big still. I think it all comes down to what others have said, the PS3 is just too much money. I would buy one right now, I just can't justify $600 for it. Although if something like a Final Fantasy did come out for it, it would be a lot harder to hold back.

I think reliability might be hurting the 360. They seem to die at an incredibly high rate. If they could fix that, I think they would do a lot better, even at $400.

One point though Wonderpug, I don't see anyone trying to make it an official thing. It's a weekly thread (if that) not a whole forum. Yeah having a skin forum would reflect on the site. A casual weekly post isn't quite the same thing.

And no it's not required that you be 18 here, but look at many of the threads in off topic, they are very adult orientated. That's all my point was.

I agree with Jumangi.  There is no way anyone could call the 360 a clusterfuck.  I still maintain that over time Wii sales will fade and the HD consoles will start to dominate.  The reason Microsoft hasn't dropped their price is because they still see Sony as their main competition in the long run, not Nintendo.


Maybe that is a mistake.  I guess we'll know in 3 years or so.

Sure, but the Wii is already going to have a huge installed base, which means people will make games for it. Like it or not, the Wii is going to be around for awhile.

In 3 years we will probably buying whole new systems anyway.

For the record, I'm not personally offended by the skin, it just seems unprofessional to have as a site-sponsored weekly feature.  It's a step away from having a "Babes of the Week" button on the front page.  If Ron wants the place to feel more like Maxim, I guess it's appropriate, I just always got the impression he wanted the site to be fairly family friendly.

Wow, talk about jumping to conclusions. Step away? Please. They are posted in an off topic forum, most of the stuff posted here is unproffesional, silly, funny, etc.

The site is family friendly. The forum is most definitely adult, and not because of one Sunday post. I see quite a few threads I wouldn't think people would want their kids reading.

Do we really judge websites by their forums? I love Gamspot, can't stand their forums. Same with Penny Arcade. I could probably find another 100 examples. These threads have nothing to do with the front page, and I think it's safe to say they never will. In fact hopefully soon we will be able to comment on the front page on articles without even entering the forums.

Anyway, the poll is pretty clear, the vast majority like the threads, or just ignore it.
2530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii vs. Guitar Hero II - the non-gamers decide on: June 12, 2007, 06:11:50 AM
It's the opposite at our CO OO parties. Wario Ware and Sports were hits while Chris Gerard shows off GH upstairs. Granted we only ever have one guitar and the PS2 is upstairs, but the Wii seemed like a bigger hit. I was really intimidated by GH myself.

Not that anyone has really touched Sports at the last few parties, I think everyone burned out.

It truly is puzzling. I watched the full video and the whole time I am wondering when the tie in with video games will come in. It never really does. Unless people who masturbate to soccer games might want to play a video game of soccer instead. I just don't get what Sony is thinking. Unless of course this is all they wanted, to create buzz. As a fence sitter on getting a PS3, it's not helping my decision to get one though.

I saw it on gametrailers.com before coming here.  I wish they would have given some idea of what the gameplay is going to look like, and I'm betting Fall 2008 turns into Spring 2009.

Honestly it's probably too early for gameplay footage. Plus we all know how Bethesda likes to hype stuff while giving out as little info as possible. They can drag this on for years.

I would rather it be a couple of months until release to hear anything at all myself.

My Dark Knight (or is it Hunter?) just got killed in one hit this morning... pretty much my last straw.  I replaced him with a bard in the back row: not sure if I'll regret not choosing an alchemist instead, but I'm always a big fan of passive skills.

The alchemist deals mega damage in the early levels, but I'm getting the feeling that this won't necessarily be the case later on.

My Landrover is the big hitter of the group everyone is level 31), but I have done nothing but max out his damage skills. With my alchemist I spent a lot of levels getting her TP regen and neglected impoving her damage skills. She's still my second biggest damage dealer, and mana is usually not an issue anymore.

And I still think the Darkhunter is worth it at later levels. My Protector will be the first to go when I can upgrade to a new class.

LOL. The drummer giving the finger is also classic.

Got to say though, they are just going for a market. It's just like Slayer, Venom, etc, they are try to sell an image that they think people will like. They are going for the old Dio crowd and trying to play the part. Metal has always been a lot like pro wrestling in my book.

I wanted to comment on these two paragraphs.

Obviously, you haven't done enough research into "modern" metal.  There's far far more to modern metal than yelling and screaming and angst.  Many, many metal bands, especially ones from Europe, feature lead singers who truly can sing.

Also many can sacrfice a goat as if they were a butcher on their day job.

I would say 95% of modern metal is crap, especially the European bands who are trying to sell the whole "Look at us, we are more Satanic than Slayer" act.

Listening to that kind of music is why I am where I am in my life right now.

Death row at Attica?

My dark hunter (whip) is level 29 and she isn't bad and can hold her own now. She does more damage than my Protector and her bind skills come in handy. If anyone is going to die, it is her, but it's rare now.

Starting to lose my patience with this game. 2 races today, both as Ferrari (but different tracks), identical driving style settings. One race, no problems, win it with 20 seconds to spare. The other, dropped 9 places from a bad start. 2 driving errors, one resulting in a pit. 2 mechanical problems, first one damaging the car serverly, the second one taking me out. I keep lowering my settings and I am still not consistent.
