1321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Alert 3 Impressions on: November 13, 2008, 05:17:33 PM
The game play feels waaay faster than in Red Alert 2.  Too fast in my opinion.  I feel like every unit and building in the game should have four times as much hit points just so that they can last a few second once they come under fire.  Also, I’ve never been a fan of kill a whole base in one shot weapons and RA3 has them in abundance.  Additionally you get additional “abilities” that while not as powerful can still destroy large chunks of a base or army without ever having to actually fight. 

I suppose my biggest criticisms come from the fact that the Dawn of War games switched the focus to tactics over unit production, a style I prefer far more.  To be fair you can’t spam one unit type anymore and expect to win.  Now you have to spam at least two!

All this said the campaign is still enjoyable for what it is.   The cut scenes are great but shorter than I expected, and the whole cast seems to be having a blast.  If you enjoy the quirkiness of RA2 and want a single player diversion give it a shot but I can’t even imagine trying to play online competitively.
1322  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / The audio service is not Running & cant run system restore on: November 07, 2008, 08:18:01 PM
Last night was trying to get the new version of Flash to install on IE7 and it was refusing.  The official help suggested using Reset.cmd.  Well I reluctantly ran it and Flash installed perfectly.  Contented I shut down for the night.  This morning I start up my computer and I’m getting two problems.  One my audio service is not running. 
If I open up services from control panel and try to start it says “not enough server storage is available to complete this operation”
Additionally I have a windows security reminder telling me that auto updates isn’t on for some reason and System role back is also disabled. 

What did I do to my poor computer?  icon_cry

If you want a great, realistic CGI, movie, you really should watch Renaissance.

That movie made my head hurt, which was a shame because I really wanted to watch it.

It was actually a two for $30 special.  I ended up getting Resistance and Assassins Creed for $30.  Looks like all the PS3 games are sold out now.  Still a couple 360 games though.

I just bought this from Walmart.com for $15.  I don’t know if it’s in store as well but it might be worth looking if you have a Wal-Mart by you.

Anyways thanks.  I hope you are right.
1327  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 controller question on: October 30, 2008, 06:39:12 PM
Can you have more than two controllers working on the 2 usb port version of the PS3?  My instincts say no but they are wireless so I don’t know.

That happens to me if I have Trillion or Skype open.  Could try closing them.


Does anyone have a solution to the bug with a left handed mouse not being able to use VATS?  You can queue up actions but your character wont fire.  If I switch my control panel settings on my computer itself its fine but it’s annoying to use anything else outside of the game.

Back when I lived in the old house with a massive barn spider infestation I used to shoot them with a BB gun on our back porch.  These were huge suckers, about the size of a half dollar.  I bring this up because barn spiders are A LOT smaller than a rat and half the time the spiders would still wobble away after being hit despite having lost half their body. 

I can’t say for certain but I doubt shooting rats with a BB gun is going to be terribly effective.

While I'm ranting about BRs, I'm getting mighty tired of Disney discs having mountains of previews before the menu coming up, and then having Java-based menus that are painfully slow to navigate, then another bunch of things before the movie.  After you hit play on Nightmare Before Christmas, you first have to watch a 30-45 second animated logo for Disney Blu-ray, then a 30-45 second animated logo for Disney.  Come on.

BBC films and TV shows are horrendous in this regard. My TV series "The Office" (UK) has something like 5-7 minutes of forced previews that you can't skip. This kind of shit amazes me.

Mercifully, the BD version of Planet Earth doesn't have this annoyance, but most regular BBC DVD's do.

Of course, nothing beats the U.S. studio's forced viewing of that incredibly obnoxious "YOU'RE A GODDAMN PIRATE!" video with the wailing police sirens and sickening death metal soundtrack.

Are you sure content can’t be skipped?    I use my PS3 and before that I used my Xbox to play movies and I’ve never run into that problem.  Some studios require you to hit the next button, others the menu button but there has only been a handful that I had to actually fast-forward through.  Even then, put it on 100x and they go away fast.
1339  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: AFI Top 100 Movie Challenge on: October 01, 2008, 12:10:45 AM
I’ve seen 23 and wouldn’t watch half of them again on a bet. I guess that’s why I don’t entirely understand these lists.  Can a movie be considered great if you would never want to see it twice? And at which point do you consider a movie great as opposed to believing it is because everyone told you so?   

*not trying to insult your taste if you actually liked all these movie*

Am I the only one who hates seeing companies try to make 3D games on the DS?  I mean I get that it can do it but they almost always look like crap with controls that are more difficult than they should be.  2D games on the other hand look and play great on the DS so I don’t really see the appeal of going 3D.

I figured the name and the picture on the box would make it rather obvious.

Is it cooked? Is it frozen?  Is it ice-cream?  Does it have pizza fixings on it in addition to (gulp) Oreos?  And above all WHHYYy!!?!!

1351  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Things to do in NYC? on: August 23, 2008, 06:56:55 PM
Well, tomorrow I’m being flown to NYC on business for a little over a week.  My family could never afford to travel growing up and I’ve only been out of Vermont a few times in my life so this is a rather big deal.  I’ve also never been on a plane.

What I know is that I will be staying (free) in a vacant apartment on the Greenwich Village Waterfront, which I’ve been told my current condo could fit inside of quite comfortably.  I know very little about NYC on the whole.

So…

What do I need to see while I’m there?

If that was crouched over more and the spiky bits were touching the ground it would look pretty close to the screenshot.
Course…they all look pretty similar to me on comparison…
1353  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dawn of War 2 - First detailed info? on: August 22, 2008, 04:49:58 PM
Maybe a Hive Tyrant?  That would make it the race commander right?  Which would be a HUGE commander unit.



EDIT
Actually I did find this model picture of a Carnifex, so you might be right there.  Which would be more of tank unit.

1354  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dawn of War 2 - First detailed info? on: August 22, 2008, 04:30:12 PM
I’m referring to this:


Which if I’m not mistaken is a Lictor.  If I recall that’s fairly standard infantry as opposed to a super unit like the Bloodthirsty was in DOW1.
1355  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dawn of War 2 - First detailed info? on: August 22, 2008, 04:23:20 AM
Love it.  Tyranids are far from my favorite race but they look to be quite interesting.  I think it’s the scale of the units that I like the most, makes them far more imposing then the other races.

I've fallen asleep to Nightmare Before Christmas twice, the first time in the theater, the second at a New Year's Eve party.

I thought I was the only one who didn’t like this movie!  I saw it the first time in theaters and thought it was dreadful.  After years of hearing its praise I thought I would give it another chance and about a year ago I did.  Fell asleep about 20 minutes into it and woke up in time to watch a singing dancing EVIL sock puppet.  I just don’t get the love for this one.
