15321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / warning finally discovers the Xbox... on: August 09, 2006, 03:29:56 AM
Quote from: "corruptrelic"
When there are so many other better games out there based on the unreal engine (as XIII was) why bother with it?
I played the PS2 version and if I remember correctly it only had 6 players! Nobody ever played it online, the bots were "iffy", gameplay limited to 6 players, and while the graphics looked interesting (cell-shaded) it still seemed behind the times.

In such a crowded FPS market with classics like Counter-Strike, Unreal Championship 1 & 2, Starwars Battlefront, and others out there, is it really that hard to see why XIII was over looked? It didn't offer anything new to the table except it's style of graphics.


Comparing PS2 ports to XBOX is like comparing a bicycle to a motorcycle. The Xbox version was much better. Also, Counter-strike on xbox was panned by most gaming sites for being lacklustre and not at all worth the coin. Since you enjoy it, it shows different strokes. Unreal Championship 1 was horrid. I didn't personally like the battlefront ones (I only recommended them due to popular taste).

It's almost a FPS.. you play Glitch, similar to the little robot (#5) from short circuit. You get weapons n crap and you are going up against some big evil mfgring or somesuch. Anyways, glitch can take over bad guys as well as battling out himself.

Awesome game; I played the demo but could never find the game used at the right price.

You think his ninja boss with man-eyes and a dude-lung wears pink slips? Wouldn't they bunch up in the shozoku? Odd picture that paints.

I did that once (and found a basket with a generic teddy bear head too), but I can't find the bin anymore I pulled the Servbot head out of. I found the ones I can throw and put on other zombies, but not the wearable one.


When you first start, go to the bookstore (immediate left) and then follow the left wall (after getting books) to the toystore with the heads. The rack behind the heads (its a display table that you can walk around) allows you to change clothes. thats where you get the servbot head.

rang in at 49/50; the only one I got wrong was the best selling PS1 game. I coulda SWORE FFVII beat out GT. slywink I think they should check their facts... heh.

The only one I guessed at were the CS Source vs. CS CZ (I've only played the former briefly; the latter has never interested me) and the Q3 vs UT mod. The thing that tipped me off was the ammo count in the bottom right.. I'd remember that font anywhere biggrin

Spoiler for Hiden:

Tetris has the line , box, T,  2 "L's" and 2 "Z's" (seven).
I counted in my head for that one. biggrin

Yeah. I'm not a conspiracy nut, but I'd like to be notified if I commented in a thread that was deleted, and why it was deleted.

Otherwise it's shady. I did comment on that thread and now I'm questioning the actions of the moderators and the content of the thread that was enough to DELETE and not just lock it. I mean, what could be that bad that we couldn't see messages?

... maybe George dubya's administration had something to do with it. ninja

So no more boss-lady? frown Aw, her masculine charms were endearing.

I guess you've got your jasmine princess on the mind now though.

Some advice: hit it with the boss lady first- it's fleeting.

And I hope you didn't take any of the comments personally; you just opened up WAY too many raz opportunities in one day.

If you were devil, we would have been WAY CRUELER.

Wait, is Crueler a word, or a donut?slywink

Quote from: "stiffler"
I've seen a lot of vampire and werewolf movies.  If I am not mistaken they usually go on and kill whatever gets in their way, not stopping to turn noobs onto the whole "children of the night" fun parade.

But if this is a question of what I'd rather be turned into I'm totally going vampire.  I already prefer the night owl thing and hate the sun so I'm already half there.  I just don't see a lot of upside to the werewolf thing.


Ever see Dog Soldiers? You can get hot Werewolf chicks too.

And is it just me, but we have all been talking about how we will get innovative gaming, but instead we are getting FPS's, a port of a mediocre at best flight game, 2 racing/driving titles and a platformer which all seem to be just standard fare for any of the other consoles.


Well, were I a chop-stick using person, I would find the same meals may be more enjoyable with a new invention called a "spoon". Soup especially. slywink

If a game has been completely retooled for use with a completely different control scheme, it may make that game better.

I'd REALLY like to see aJet Set Radio Future style game on the Wii. (not to be confused with Jet Set Satellite, a damn fine band).

One could argue that being on the Unreal 3 engine (and being an FPS from Epic) it could be part of the Unreal universe... much like Halo was tied into Marathon.

Corrupt, let's boil that down to the basics.
Check return policy on whatever store FIRST. Costco & Walmart have awesome return policies. Also, make sure they aren't writing down the serial number at the time of sale (Which is why I don't recommend Gamestop/EBGames).
[list=1]
  • Go to Costco / Walmart, etc and buy a 360.
  • Get it home and unpack it out of the box.
  • Pack your busted-ass one in box.
  • Return your to the store (it's better to go to a different store-front); indicate you hated it/wife made you return it/alien probe in your ass interferes with it.
Tell them you hate chocolate milk for all I care.
  • Leave with your money.
  • There is no step 6.
  • [/list:o]
