15401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sony: How many Blu-ray movies are there in the US? on: August 04, 2006, 01:48:08 PM
Nice leg-work there, buddy smile

... and I'm not referring to your "Roadside Attraction" activities. slywink

I'd really like to see the game and be wowed by it before they start calling it a franchise.


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.

so, in conclusion, i repeat:

"it really is pretty damn amazing how many people that post here have had problems (& how forgiving/understanding most are - not so sure i would be. probably another good reason to stay away)..."


I'm shocked that you're amazed. I mean, over 100 million PS2's shipped... I know people who have gone through more than 5 due to true hardware failure.

I'll just mention that I got one at launch and have had no issues with it whatsoever.


Mine was just loud so I switched it out cuz I could. This one here is being finicky with hanging during DW5:E ... not sure if it's heat, the game or the hardware. Switching it out cuz I can.

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]

It's the destructable (and believable) environments and using cover in something similar to ither miliary shooters, except with more finesse.

I'm hoping it turns out to be more like Halo, rather than Brute Force.
15411  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Another 360 bites the dust on: August 03, 2006, 05:59:11 PM
Call again and ask for a supervisor. Be polite but firm. Screaming and yelling rarely works; neither does a "Whiney" tone. I'm not suggesting you employed either, but the rep won't care for you. It's your paramount task to get them to empathize with you. When they do, they'll jump through hoops to make sure you're taken care of.

Agreed. They'd pick me off from across the map, but use no tactics or anything that made any sense, be running the wrong way, then suddenly drop to prone position and deliver a killshot.


EA has used it's Drunken Master AI System (tm) for more than just shooters. Enjoy it in sports games, racing games, etc etc..

I'm waiting on reviews and the demo- while recent previews offer some hope, for about six months or so this title seemed to anticipated soley on the basis of "you get to kill hordes of zombies!" which is fine for a $20 game but won't cut it at $60.

I'm not a big Ang Lee fan; but since I knew he was directing I had set my expectations at just the right level to enjoy the movie. I loved the smashing etc, but I also LOVED the visual presentations (remembering the scene where banner was in the lab with the generals daughter and the bootlick).

I was able to forgive the slow start... I mean, Ang needed to build the plausability, right? smile

I say her extra dude-lung means that he can stare into her dreamy blue man-eyes longer while kissing her. Then she shows him all the other spare "dude-parts" she installed and he ends up waking up in excruciating pain with a size 7 poop chute.

And then Fires his ass. (for the second time, I suppose).

I still say Hulk for $3.99 is $3.99 more than it's worth.


I disagree. The Hulk was a fantastic remake. It at least included the conflicts in banners life.

Bana can't act, but we don't shit on Berry's head for her pathetic "storm". Oh wait, we do! biggrin

In all seriousness, I enjoyed the Hulk way more than I did X3 or Punisher. I imagine I'll still prefer it more than Ghost Rider.
15421  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many consoles (same kind) have you been through? on: August 02, 2006, 12:59:36 PM
I'm on my 3rd xbox360; only because I COULD trade them in.

My first one was loud, my second one seems to hang / overheat when playing DW5.

So I got a new one yesterday (my buddy manages an EBGames, so no big deal for me).

I will have a fourth one next year at this time, right at the end of my EB warranty.

She had an eye transplant with a dude. You're fawning over dude-eyes. That is so not cool.

What if she bought the discarded remains of a science donor? What other parts has she swapped out? I wonder if her extra dude-lung helps her hold her breath longer....  :lol:

there are black ovals at the top (to the right of the weapon). the weapon is in slot 1, and there are 5 other slots. Only the first 3 are avail for items (initially).

Kill lots of stuff, you can unlock the 4th one.

make sure you're not swinging at the time, or you can't change equipment.

As to the items, there is no paper-doll that I know of. The weapon models DO change though.

Quote from: "kathode"
Can't beat the demo.  I don't know what it is.  The first time I died because I was stupid early on.  The second time I died what I imagine is late in the demo past the landslide because those silvery-armoured goblins who can block ganged up and kicked my ass.  The game is going to need exhaustive checkpoints because I already don't feel like starting over again.  And yeah, your army filled up at the lead paint buffet before they came out to fight.  Stupid is as stupid does, and they don't do shit.

It's ok I guess.  I'm just running around hammering buttons.


K. Imagine if someone walked into Oblivion hammering buttons.

Read the controls and the combos. I died twice in the demo; and then I looked through the combos and the item equip stuff.

I load up the soldiers and then move forward, keeping them in defence (down on d pad). You need to kill guys to get red orbs, you need to use red orbs to get blue ones so you can use your big powerup attacks. Also, explore all the areas to get your good stuff.

I found that when fighting the harder guys, you actually need to block (which is pretty reasonable). Also the X,Y,Y,Y,Y combo is awesome (it's like Chun Li's hyper kick).

I'll drop some full impressions when I have time.
