2921  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Looking for MtG cards on: June 20, 2009, 07:26:31 PM
Not to derail this too much, but how does one tell what MtG cards are from what release / era / whatever? I got into CCGs 15 or so years ago and bought way too many cards from different games - MtG, ST:TNG (have a complete mint premier edition somewhere), Mechwarrior, Wyvern, who knows what else. Dug out some magic cards, I know my old decks are again in that magical 'somewhere' but these are some remnants / dups I guess, probably 200+ in a binder 9 to a page. The only ones with a date are for the artwork which is copyright 1994, the rest have no date. Some must be from 'Legends' as I have four copies of the rules changes that came with those cards.

Is there someplace where I can check what's what? icon_neutral

A friend of mine and I finished Bioshock about the same time - I got the good ending, he got the bad one so we got to compare notes. I thought it was interesting the difference in the Little Sister's attitude and banter towards the end that we had seen.

So... are you looking for a physical copy? You might want to consider hunting down a copy of the strategy guide, it's one of the best ones I've seen and well worth it if you end up spending any kind of significant time with the game. It's usually discounted pretty nicely on Amazon, from what I recall.

I bought the original, played it for 2 hours and had fun, but after that, had no desire to go back to it. Its just more of the same

Steam upgraded the game to ORCS edition, but, havent mustered the energy to try it, since, well, its probably just more of the same. I'd wait for a sale :-)

I'm pretty much in the exact same boat. Played briefly with the 'upgraded' version and then uninstalled it. Again.  icon_frown

come on people - Anyone who listens to the radio at any point, or watch any kind of music television will know who she is , regardless of whether you like her or not. I know her music, and while I liked it in the beginning, its getting repetitive by now, the same two songs.

I don't watch music television beyond the occasional VH1 classics show and the only radio I listen to is a classic rock station where they have real musicians like Pink Floyd, the Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Bruce Springsteen  Tongue

I'm way past watching any 'music television' except for the high-def concert channel we have on cable and listen to the radio in my car all the time, different stuffs but not any station where I've heard Lady Gaga. The only reason I know who she is is from watching 'So You Think You Can Dance'... last year she performed on the show and one of the routines in the show this week was done to one of her songs from what I recall. Mary the screacher even quoted her, be shocked if she doesn't show up somewhere in this season as a guest performer as well.

I thought Vitolio's solo was really good.  At least it was head and shoulders above the other two.  I hope he continues on, and I wish they showed you the styles that people picked out for next week.  Female solos were ok.  I'd just like to thank Asuka for her solo costume idea last night.  Basically "Oh I'll just take off my shirt and go for it!"  I felt bad for Tony who stood up there looking like he was going to lose it and bawl while in those ridiculous red pants smile

Tony should have never made the top 20 in my opinion, his dancing just wasn't strong enough... Evan's brother should have been in there instead, base style be damned.  The hip hop Ryan did (that he choreographed for his group) was better than Tony.

I think one of the big reasons he made it in was because they couldn't get that one guy released from his ballet contract. Regardless, it was by the skin of his teeth so I wasn't shocked at all when he was the first of the boys to go out the door.

Yes, a whole new set of barriers and an "island specific" billboard, both of which are tracked separately on your new license. And note they have "mega" jumps, not super jumps on the island... not sure if there really is a difference, however. Found this on the G4TV site which sums it up well:

Aside from MP does anyone know of any differences between the Xbox and PS3 version of this game?

The PS3 version was more difficult to program, so they left out being able to destroy world objects, such as buildings.

Wow, that seems like a major difference.  Are you serious?  I read a review just now from IGN and it talked about destruction on multiplayer.

wow,that is a big difference...funny as well,because the first two Red Factions with its destructable stuff was on PS2

The PS3 version also has it's sarcasm detector disabled.

Sheesh, sure seems that way.  Roll Eyes

The 'patch' *is* the Island, I assume it stays closed to traffic until you buy it which downloads a small license file (or some such) to unlock it. You can start on the island or the mainland and drive back and forth over the not-quite-finished bridge. You get a new license specific to the island as well that tracks your island stats separate from the mainland ones while you're "on vacation" over there. One new car at the start (a buggy) with 8 others to unlock and some new event types from what I could tell from the little I played.

Why yes. Yes I do. Now to track down a copy on the cheap.

Keep in mind, though, if you have any desire for that "Fate of Atlantis" unlockable goodness, it's only in the Wii version for some reason.

Does the PSP-3000 not have any internal memory?  Do you have to buy a memory stick to save anything?  About how much do they cost?

AFAIK, none of the PSP models come with internal memory, my PSP-2000 certainly didn't. A 1GB memory stick came with the bundle that I bought but I recently picked up a 4GB Sony stick from Amazon for just under $22 as I needed more storage.

Does the current PSP allow you to download games?  If so, what does the Go offer that the current model does not already have now?

Yep- you can access PSN directly from the PSP.

The Go offers nothing in functionality that isn't already in current PSPs.  The chief advantage is the new form factor. 

Bluetooth, I believe and 16GB of internal storage necessitated by the removal of the UMD drive.

I'm not seeing any text issues with FF7 with Remote Play to the PS3. It seems to be fine either way but of course the jaggies are much less noticable on the PSP. In the same boat as Gratch, though, over the years I've played the first X hours serveral times but never put in the time to get deep into the game. Really should, though. Someday.

From what I recall, one of the linked threads mentioned the fact that the square and X buttons are backwards here, which is mucho confuseo and not something I really wanted to get used to. Found that in the config menu there's a way to remap all of the functions / buttons so you can easily swap the two back 'to normal' if you like. Me likey. thumbsup

Quote from: Blackjack on June 06, 2009, 02:03:37 PM has a brief piece on it, and some video footage from E3 (at end of their impressions piece):

Don't panic about the "to MMO" part -- they mean they'd like to ramp it up into a free MMO well after the initial release, and be able to do regular updates to the content (rather than a Diablo style, "content updates only in the form of paid expansions" system).
Torchlight will have pets that can fight with you, they never die and have their own inventory. We thank Runic Games for this design choice, because it means as players we won't have to constantly check in on our little monster's health -- instead, we'll be able to focus on beating the living mana out of our enemies.

The class we were able to get our hands on was the Destroyer. This class summons a shadow worm that attaches to your back and attacks anything nearby. We thought it was pretty wicked, actually. The game will be very modder friendly, which is a big bonus for the game's community. Things such as skills, quests, level cap, art and levels will all be moddable -- and the system is much like Unreal's drag and drop modular functionality.

Twelve to eighteen months after the single player release, Perfect World will launch the free to play MMO version. Planned features for the online game include more character customization, more character classes, mounts, PvP (both personal and territorial) and randomly generated dungeons. They will also add social features like marriage, buddy lists, chat features and world events.
The MMO part seems like an awfully optimistic dream -- lots of companies have crashed and burn in "12 to 18 months."

I needed to jog my memory about Felicia Day (who's in the E3 video). She's maybe best known for Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing Along ( alongside Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion. That she'd be having fun trying Torchlight just makes her more attractive.  drool icon_lol

I'm smack in the middle of other things so didn't want to take the time / brain power to do any serious learning of this, that will have to wait - but I was blown away by the shear volume of tutorial and 'tips' entries for this. Then just started a new game, even after it warned me I really should do the tutorial first and had no clue what was going on. The wisp is advancing, the wisp is advancing, the wisp is advancing... errr, what? Looks like this will be interesting when I get some time to get serious about it.
