I'd just like to say : LE I hope you do mean what you say when you stated you're looking to be convinced.
 Cleric7 : while I understand your frustration with LE (and I was too on page 2) I don't think his acerbic comments are intended as malice to the readers. He's just a very jaded and bitter gamer, and places too much expectation into RPG games.

I just a call ; my Oblivion is in. biggrin

Lets keep it civil.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

While lots of people may not agree with LE, he isn't attacking any specific poster so lets not start.


He is, however, trolling. There is no content in his post to suggest he's PLAYED IT and therefore is derailing the point of this thread.

PS. I do understand his standpoint; but dropping that comment into an impressions thread without putting enough time to form an objective opinion is a waste of everyone's time.

Maybe he needs to go get his official "Legends" Unicorn and Tom Cruise dolls and give them conflicted personalities; sharing deep introspective moments of lustless self-loathing, and then have them fail at the point of redemption. You know, for shits-n-giggles. :roll:

15884  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Mouse is dying - recommendations for a new one? on: March 19, 2006, 01:49:52 AM
I was a trackball convert, but I hated the lift-and reset that your thumb needs to do in a fire-fight.

I have a G7; the only thing I'm not happy with is the one button on the left side (there should be a second one). The battery switch and dpi change on the fly is sweet and it's VERY comfortable.

I'd recommend the MS laser 6000 if you don't mind having a mouse-wheel that doesn't click (for gaming it's pretty stupid NOT to have it... less control in using it). The 6000 has the tilt on it (kinda touchy though) but it DOES have 2 thumb buttons.

Oh, if you want a really good price on the G5 / G7, head over to www.ncix.com or www.tigerdirect.com.

Rare was a 2nd party developer for the N64, back around 2004. Just like the ill-fated grabbed by the ghoulies and Conker's Bad Fur Day, it looks like this is another N64 left-over IP.

So I'm thinking Animal Farm may be more of a me-too than the original (it just came out first). Odd to see it that way.

Let's hope Rare can crank out a 100% quality product (I do like PD0, but it isn't done).

Rowdy, hit http://www.superstore.ca/ .

My other Superstore still has 9 premiums in stock.

I picked one up for Farley2k today.

I also picked up a second one; it may be up for grabs (waiting on 2 friends who mentioned interest to say yay or nay).

If anyone is interested in the second premium, email me.

15906  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] GRAW Control tips for Multiplayer on: March 10, 2006, 08:58:16 PM
You know, with a high-powered sniper rifle, I believe you can actually go THROUGH LD's head to kill the Tango.

"MEDIC!!!"
15907  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] GRAW Control tips for Multiplayer on: March 10, 2006, 07:27:32 PM
I just wanted to drop people a note (since some of us were looking for this earlier)...

1) To use the camera on the OICW rifle (or any camera rifle) use the LB in conjunction with the left joystick.

2) If you DON'T have a camera-gun equipped, this lets you lean. That's right... you can STILL LEAN in MP GRAW.

3) the directional pad works for controlling the drone. Use it. Help yourself out. You can either use it with the UP/DOWN commands, or hit back (when the drone is on the top-left camera view) and then when you hit UP it will travel to your cursor. Keep in mind, it CAN be shot down.... don't go dropping it into the middle of a fray.

4) RTFM. biggrin (Manuel? isn't that a book about a spanish kid? )

To points 1 and 2: Woot, I Say. Woot indead.

15911  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Burnout Revenge 360 on: March 09, 2006, 06:22:42 PM
I've passed on my copy. I'll pick this one up used (as I played ~40% of the game on the Xbox1).
15912  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Amped 3? on: March 09, 2006, 06:21:45 PM
The underlying game is fantastic. Amped 3 = Amped 2 + easier arcade control. The game is fundementally the same, except you spend less time pissed off because you do the slapstick - stand up, whack head on tree, fall down, stand up, whack head on ... you get the picture.

The major drawbacks to this game is that it is the single most non-Live friendly game. That's really too bad as Amped 2 was one of the most Live friendly games on the Xbox (session host could drop and there would be no inerruption in the game, etc).

The animation is campy and frankly a more than a little overwrought, but other than that it's a blast. I love the fact that you can modify the terrain, you can switch to snowmobile and drive where you need to get to (if you're just below the intended challenge this can be a BIG plus). There is a ton of adrenaline to be had.

Lower Baldy on the second mountain is a freakin' blast. You don't need to butter or carve at ALL to get a 350,000+ combo.

Spoiler for Hiden:

Hooray! They included the ability to fucking LEAN!!!


I like the left trigger aiming ... it goes all virtua cop on you as you can now fire at multiple targets without "moving" per se. Also the hide feature is well implemented.

Didnt FF V have a LONG ass sequence for one of the sumons required in the end boss fight?>  The Knights or something like that?

I dont like non skippable movies, nor do I like the idea of FAR between save points.  I have the time to search for something like that, but I dont want my game to be a task just so that I can put it down.


FFVII had Knights of the Round (the rare summon you needed a golden Chocobo to get). It ran a total of about 90sec per cast.

When fighting Emerald Weapon (underwater one that splits in half) I had to cast it a total of about 15 times, among other summons and whatnot.  :shock:
