2641  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: GT/OO Fantasy F1 Racing (Batracer, F1 2007) on: March 25, 2007, 07:31:26 PM

If you have a mid-season slot open, there's an opening in the excellent F1 07 Rookie Training Game.

Go to the forums, and look for it under private games-drives available.

Just sent him a PM.

Getting frustrated with the lack of participation in public games. Lots of people go AWOL. My partner on my Williams 2007 team disappeared and it's hurting me bad. Hopefully he gets kicked soon since he hasn't done any car settings yet.

Trying to make a custom helmet, using MS Paint, but most of the colors I try to paint turn out grey. Any ideas?

Awesome! Thanks for the hlep guys  retard

You are new to the game? Best bet is to read the tutorial. The ask your teammate lots of questions. It took me about 1/2 a season to semi get it. I am still learning.

I am in 2 public 2007 races and the car comparison shows Ferrari as incredibly fast in 2007. Red Bull the slowest. Ironically Red Bull took the pole in Australia in one of those public games. I was very happy to qualify 8th in my Toro Rosso.

So anyway, pr0ner and I should kick serious ass with Ferrari. biggrin (Knock on wood.) In reality, I just hope we keep in contention for the Constructors.

Edit: Hope it's not a problem that I am playing two other 2007 seasons. I am not playing Ferrari in either of them (Williams and Toro Rosso). I picked Ferrari here because I am a fan, not because of their speed, although that is nice.

We should have, but I guess a few people weren't up for another game. We did have one OOer who started the game but never really played.

I like that the baby blue is gone. Anyway, it's not as bad as Honda's.

Edit 2: Batracer got the colors wrong, just looked at pics, its a dark blue now.

I got me a DS copy! So many games.....

I find myself messing up moves quite a bit due to the cramped space. I think they could have done something differently to make it easier to move things around. Also, it seems that the monsters level with you. Is that correct?

Where did you get it from? A B&M store?

I've been unable to confirm that the game has even been shipped to my store, via overnight or ground. Given the fact that I specifically requested the title and supposedly had over half a dozen copies earmarked for my store, it could be that it hasn't shipped to any GS/EB stores yet.

Hmm, well if they don't have it tomorrow I will just order online. Sucks because I want to play more, but I am done with the demo.

Thanks for the info Misguided.

In, would like Ferrari, just because they're my favorite team.

I didn't have a teammate as Ferrari in our OO game, is it going to be a problem passing car info when I can only access the game in the evening? Unless you have Kool Tools you have to email car settings, right?
2660  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: I will never eat Indian food again. on: March 21, 2007, 08:32:38 PM

Quote from: Kobra on March 21, 2007, 04:24:49 PM

I haven't ever tried Indian food, but man do people talk about it a lot.  We got a ton of well rated indian joints around here, I should try it I guess. I love Curry/Turmeric.

Whats a good Indian dish for a "Noob" to indian food to try that isn't too obnoxious?

Just for your info, Indian food isn't made with curry powder, thats for Chinese food or really bad Indian curries. Most indian curries are made of cumin, coriander, ground chilies and then an assortment of other spices such as turmeric or cardamoms. Also large amounts of onions are used (the sauce is made of up of minced onions in almost every curry).

For a newbie get something like a Dopiaza (means double onion), rogan josh (spiced lamb in a tomato sauce), or tika masala (grilled chicken in a curry sauce). Almost all Indian places in the states will make it as hot or as mild as you want. You can get Vindaloo (meat with potatoes) which is popular but it and Madras are supposed to be hot. Saag is meat with spinach and also great. If you don't like spicy, go with buttered chicken, tandoori, korai, or tika (tandoori and tika are not curries but grilled meats). No matter what you have, get some naan to mop up the sauce. Personally I never order tandoori as a main, it's always a starter.

Stay from buffets unless a lot of Indians eat there. I complained at one place because the food was so tasteless and they told me they had to dumb it down for American tastes. "American's don't like spicy" he told me. Also in my experience stay away from an Indian restaurant that has beef on the menu but not lamb. Indians use lamb, not beef.

I grew up on English Indian food, probably the best place to get Indian in the world. smile I heard the curries we get in the West are quite different than anything you will see in India (but I guess that goes with all ethnic food). Also if anyone is interested in some good curry recipes, go to The Curry House, I make this guys recipes about twice a week and I have never found better home made recipes that are as good as the restaurants.

Quote from: Ridah on March 21, 2007, 07:58:39 PM

I don't think anyone seriously expected the 360 to perform well in Japan. Even if it had more games like Blue Dragon being released on a regular basis, the Japanese obviously prefer their own shit whether it's better or not.

I just don't think that is true. Japanese gaming tastes are vastly different than North Americas, and neither Xbox had many of those kind of games out. When Blue Dragon came out it did sell systems over there, they just need more of those kind of games more often if they want to do well.

Bah, why did I bother trying to get this at a b&m store at lunch.  They were just finishing unpacking the DS/GBA boxes that arrived, and "Puzzle Quest?" was only good for blank stares.

Hehe that's what I am scared of. My local EB has never offered to go through boxes for me, they always tell me to come back, so I will wait an hour or two more before I head down there. I wonder if Target will carry it, they seem to be quite good for new releases.

I know gamespot typically score games lower than everywhere else, but 7.9 is kinda shocking

Yeah they gave Crackdown something like a 7.9 too, under rated I think. I really think you need to read Gamespots reviews to get a true feel for whether the game is for you and not go off the rating too much.

I will be buying Motorstorm as soon as I get a PS3. They have a few in stock around town here, and everytime I see one, I have to remind myself to wait. smile

Yeah, cause one 7.9 > all the other 8's, 9's and 10's this game has recieved.   Roll Eyes

To be fair, the game has an 85% on Gamerankings after 14 reviews, so it wasn't the only 7.9. Anyway IMHO Gamespot is much more reuputable than IGN.
2673  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I am now officially done with Gamestop on: March 02, 2007, 05:39:10 AM
One of the local EB employees was bragging to a co-worker how he beat Crackdown a week before it came out. Yet another reason I won't go there, I am not paying full price for a used game. He wants to play, it take home a used copy when they get one.

Considering that Ron can do things like host the C&C demo (1.2GB or so) without any issue, in addition to all the movies that pop up on the front page from time to time, bandwith is the least of his concerns. biggrin

I wouldn't buy one myself, Blu-ray/HD-DVD are both 1080p, why buy a TV that 3-4 years from now won't be able to support the mainstream resolution? Especially since the PS3, and eventually 360 games will be 1080p. Pay a little more and get a TV that will support the new technology in my book.

I must not be good because I find it kinda tough on default  crybaby

How far into it are you?  When I started out it was a lot more difficult than it should've been because I hadn't yet realized the importance of taking cover, and the way that your armor recharges if you lay low for a few seconds.  Once I got that concept down, the boss assaults became much more strategic (and doable).

I prefer it on the default difficulty just because I like being an unstoppable badass and taking everyone and everything out with my bare hands. I should get driving xp for kicking a truck into a bunch of thugs, killing them.

+1, on easiest it's fun and not frustrating. I still die on occasion, usually from multiple grenades at once. I do wish, once I cleaned something out, that new thugs wouldn't keep appearing. I was trying to find the switches for a particular boss, and the amount of baddies that kept coming in was getting irritating.

It depends on how driven you are. I have probably 5-6 hours in, and I only cleared out the first gang so far. I have been driving around, exploring, and working on stats. Been having fun just doing that myself.
