Quote from: "Devil"
:evil:  will be back on the 24th and ready to be destroyed by any of you on the 26th.

Let the Eagle-beating begin!!


Hey Devil -

Have you checked out some of the new screenies at OpSports?

There is one there that lists ALLLLLLLLL the things you can do on defense before your opponent snaps the ball...

Double team "A"

Blitz "B"

Inside Cover "C"

Outside Cover "D"

Bump "E"

Play Loose on "F"

Move the linemen apart

Move the backers together

etc..

etc..


Can you see Me and You doing this?  Is this not going to be a total crack-up!!!

I can see it now:

LD:  "What was THAT!"

Devil: "Oh man!  I meant to blitz my Lft. OLB!

LD:  "Nope, you had him double my Fullback instead!"

Devil:  "No shit!  That left Portis wide open in the flat too!"

LD:  "Yep, look at him go!   Oops, what was THAT!"

Devil:  "What did you do!  Portis just turned around and ran right into Dawkins!   Look he fumbled!"

LD:  "No shit!  I meant to hit super dive, and instead did a backwards juke!"

Devil:  "Haha!  Got you now!  I'm going to run this back for a TD!"

LD:  "Here I come!  Better do a fancy move!"

Devil: "Oh shit!  I meant to do a stutter step but hit the spin button instead!  Out of bounds!"

LD:  "Here we go again...."

Eco:  "Hey guys... send me your V.I.P. file so I can play against you!"

LD and Devil in unison:  "NO!"




I can't wait!!!!   Tongue

Loren - I think they are calling it an "extended series" or something like that.  It has multiple shows coming up, and I expect they will make more depending on how it does?  Not sure.  I think it will be preceding Dead Zone each Sunday... not sure about that either though.   :?

I am not in the beta, but I would love to hear more about it honestly.  Any adventures/impressions you have, I would love to read them.

I watched an 8 minute long video on EverQuest 2 on Sunday that is on Gametrailers.com.   It just looks fantastic.  

So, between these two mega-games, I think MMO fans have alot to look forward to.  

After the way CoH dominated my life for about 3 months, I am hesitant to ever play one again, but if ANY could pull me back in, it is probably one of these two games.

Well Destructor -

I started playing KotoR, but I ended up going with the PC version because of the graphics.   ...which sorta defeats my original question of finding a good RPG to play on the xbox....

Anyway, KotoR is different from Sudeki, and not exactly what I was "looking for" as far as games similar to Sudeki.

On a positive note however, I am now completely hooked on KotoR, and am wondering how in the world I avoided this game for so very long, considering it won like 600 Game of the Year Awards.

It is absolutely a tremendous game.... and I have only just begun.

This should occupy all my time until the release of ESPN Football 2k5  -  which is perfect!

Thanks.

The 4400 was on Sunday night at 9:00pm (EST)

Did anyone from Console Gold see this?

I personally thought it was pretty good.

As of now, there are about 6 main story lines... some of them intertwined.

The only real negative (in my opinion) is the female lead.  How unusual!   :wink:

I plan on watching it regularly if it stays pretty good, which so far it is.

Check out the screenshots at OpSports.

You are going to LOVE the Eagles.  Your top rated guys are in key positions this year.  

I'm betting on LOTS of online Eagles players this year my friend.   :wink:

And did you get aload of that Sound screenie?  What the hell is THAT all about?   Looks pretty cool to me, though I haven't a clue what it is.

This is copied from a post (that is copied from a post) on OpSports... and supposedly ranks the teams from lowest to highest as far as overall rating for the game this year.

I think by looking at the ranks, we can get an idea of what the numbers are. Obviously its lowest - highest. I'll also note that a few mid ranged teams share the same/nearly the same overall rating

NYG
SD
HOU
ARZ
PIT
NYJ
DET
CLE
WAS
GB
SF
CIN
CHI
DEN
MIA
STL
ATL
DAL
NO
JAX
SEA
TEN
BUF
IND
KC
BAL
OAK
TB
MIN
PHI
CAR
NE


Now, don't shoot the messenger here.  I am not saying it's true or false, I am just relaying information for anyone that is interested.  Obviously there are some funny things here if the list is reliable, but if it's accurate, I suppose it could be worse.

Anyway, just thought you guys would be interested, IF it is a real list.  Judge for yourself.

5576  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / OXM Sudeki Demo on: July 10, 2004, 03:53:27 PM
OK.  So, I just tried the Sudeki demo.

This is so much fun.  

Since Concole RPG's aren't really my thing, and I'm talking even remotely my thing here...

Do you guys know of any others that are already out for the xbox that are like this game?  Turn Based Combat is fine with me by the way.  I am more interested in all those cool powers and skill points and stuff like that.  

I am open to suggestions as well as education on this topic, as I seriously know almost nothing about console RPG's.  I think I played Final Fantasy III for about an hour back in the day, and this Sudeki demo.... that is pretty much my experience.   :oops:

OK.  So let's see if  I can help out Devil and Eco a bit here.

In order they have been claimed:

Devil  -  Eagles

EcoLogic  -  Titans  (boo!)

AgtFox  -  Vikings

Caveman  -  Panthers

Graham  -  Packers

Naednek  -  49ers

Soulbringer  -  Rams

Gellar  -  Bengals

Denoginizer  -  Bills

Chaz  -  Patriots

stevemd  -  Dolphins  (go phins!)

pr0ner  -  Chiefs

Lockdown  -  Raiders

Wudmon  -  Ravens

Simon  -  Seahawks

Driver  -  Jaguars

Tebunker  -  Texans

-  -  -  -  -

Not too bad actually.  17 teams claimed so far.

I believe that a tournament (in the range we're looking at) needs either 16 or 20 teams.  If we hit 20, we should start.


Website   :     Tournament Homepage

Once Eco updates the Participants page, you can go there easier than coming here to view who's "IN".

5579  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Game Discussion: ESPN NFL 2K5 on: July 09, 2004, 12:28:30 PM
You want to know what I find really ironic about this...

(Madden fans, don't get pissed about me saying this, it's just my warped opinion)

In reality, based on quality, it should be the competition that sells for $10.00 and ESPN that sells for $60.00


$10.00 for the game I will spend more hours playing this year than any other game I buy, INCLUDING PC games.  (assuming the running game is fixed).

This whole thing just borders on the absolutely absurd!

Our hobby is a crack-up sometimes, isn't it?

I remember watching V as a kid too.

Absolutely loved it.

Favorite Character... Michael Ironside.  I don't remember exactly what role he played, but he was like a rebel who took big risks and really tried to stick it to the visitors.  His group was functioning as a different group than the main resistance force I believe, until they hook up some how.  I don't exactly remember.  One thing I do remember though, it how he used to call Marc Singers' character "Gooder".    

A bit cheezy, but truly classic stuff!

I just noticed that stevemd took the phish.

I then went and looked at the thread and realized I never claimed the Dolphins myself.......... what a retard!

Btw, welcome to the forums stevemd.

Now, to choose a team....

I will playing my Steelers in franchise, so they are OUT.

I have narrowed it down to either the Raiders or the Seahawks.

Or maybe the Redskins ....   or the Jaguars .....    hmmm....  so may teams I actually like in the NFL.

Who do you guys think will have the best defense, especially DB's?

Whoever you guys think will have the best cornerbacks especially will be my pick.  God knows I can use all the help I can get back there.  Taylor or Woodson... juicy choice right there.

(...and if some of you are wondering if I have lost my mind in considering the Raiders... remember that Norv is their head coach this year... I am a HUGE fan of his.  And yes, I realize they are running a 3-4 this year... but so do the Steelers, so I am used to it.)

5585  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Game Discussion: ESPN NFL 2K5 on: July 04, 2004, 11:53:35 AM
Well, I think everyone is just going to have to face the fact that the V.I.P. System is going to absolutely kick ass.  This, along with online leagues, and the ability to prepare for each game (if you desire), and the improved salary engine is going to up the ante' big time for everyone.

Mark my words, this is Game of the Year potential.

Assuming of course that it all actually works!

I may be a huge fan of Visual Concepts... but I am a skeptical one also.

...and off topic a bit, apparently A.J. isn't looking so hot at all down in south Florida.  My luck just never seems to change.   :cry:

I unfortunately can not set up/manage the tournament this season.

I will be sick that month.

But, I definately will participate in it and gladly assist whoever is in charge with some small duties if they would like.

And as the official assistant to whoever is going to run the tournament, my first act of power will be to strip Devil of the Eagles, and make him take............................

You know putting those bad boys on will make you play better!

(oh, and from what i hear, your defense is ranked like 98 or some such nonsense).  

Which means, I will call a play with A.J., you can go grab a jelly donut and some coffee, take a bathroom break, play kissy with the wife, come back, and I will have still not moved the ball more than 3 yards!

I am REALLY looking forward to playing against you this year!   :roll:

Quote from: "AgtFox"

What kind of computer are you getting btw and what kind (and how old) was the computer you had?



Without going into geeky detail, I am getting an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ with 1 gig dual channel DDR memory and an ATI 9800 pro video card.  One of those audigy 2 zs (or something like that) sound cards and the dvd, cd, etc.. etc..  blah blah blah.  It's going to be pretty nice I think.

My now blown up machine was an AMD XP 1800+ with an older ATI video card and an old first generation audigy sound card with 512mb of the cheapest RAM that existed I think.  

I have (and am keeping) a super nice Sony Trinitron Flat Screen 19" CRT that I am hoping will last me forever though.  I love that thing.

And I agree about MMORPG's.... I think my days with them are over for good.  If I had more willpower/discipline than a tree sloth, then maybe I could get into one again... but alas, I do not.

I'm thinking it was a blessing in disguise.  I was WAY too addicted to City of Heroes... and this has broken the chain, so to speak.

I am back to breathing fresh air again and speaking to people on the telephone, and eating, and going to the gym, and watching television on occasion even.   All those things I stopped doing b/c of CoH are now happening again!  (ok, so I am being a bit extreme, but seriously, it was getting rather ridiculous)

By the way... I am done with City of Heroes for good.  That type of "addiction" to any game is not something I really want to be known for.  (well, maybe ESPN 2k5, but that's where I draw the line)  :wink:

Funny you should say that.

Last week my computer blew up.  Nope, not figuratively... but flat out blew up!  My hard drive and motherboard, along with my RAM.... all toast.

Burnt toast.

I have therefore resorted to spending lots of quality time with the not-so-significant other, and I am beginning to go a bit stir-crazy.

My new computer will not even be shipped for another week, so if you want to hook up for either some Links or Tennis, or something we both kind of suck at, let me know a good night.

Too bad we can't play Spiderman co-op!   I am thinking of going and getting that one any day now.
