16403  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [XBOX] Call of Cthulhu -- Let the Bethesda bashing begin! on: October 25, 2005, 08:41:01 PM
Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"
Quote from: "Hetz"
Bethesda is NOT the developer of the game. They are the PUBLISHER.
Ok.  I'll change a word and my point will remain the same.

Thanks for the semantics lesson.


Bethesda's already been in it for millions, at this point it needs to go to market. Maybe they should have dropped the game two years ago at a loss; instead they gambled. As it turns out it may not be a horrible stinker ... mediocre, perhaps, but not such an abysmal failure that it deserves 'bashing'. I mean, 80% ain't bad.

It's not a semantics lesson; that would be teaching people to quible about little things. Millions of dollars, from my perspective, isn't little.
16404  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [XBOX360] November Launch Title List on: October 25, 2005, 04:49:00 PM
And like I said, this is from the MS site. Make of it what you will.

Here's the link again :

http://www.xbox.com/en-CA/Games/xbox360games.htm (Canadian Site has dates listed)
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Games/xbox360games.htm (US site has ALL the games listed, and no dates).

Speculation: Perhaps the location of Ubisoft plays a role in the information provided, meatbag. slywink

I find it odd that Adv. Warfighter is there. Take it with a grain of salt, but it IS from MS's site. I went there while going to win an xbox360 from the canadian pepsi promo.

UPDATE: They took down that page. Hrmm.

Also, they announced (via an email ) that Xbox.com was changing along with live for yesterday; it seems this is truly the case.

Looks like I got a peek up their skirts.. let's see if it's still in my cache.... I doubt it though; the list was a scrolling animated setup, not static html.

As to EMERGENCY! what is it? I have never heard of it. Ever. Does someone have a relevant link to both description of the show, movie, etc? How about links to rehabilitation facilities (it may help StarShifter out). biggrin

Wasn't there a problem with the game when you get to the fire-based arena? I played it for a while (got to the 2nd or 3rd map unlock) but had to give the game back.

It's very FF Tactics meets minigame extravaganza. biggrin

16433  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What games do you wish you'd never sold/traded in? on: October 21, 2005, 04:11:33 PM
SCUMM games :
DotT, Sam'n'Max, Full Throttle, All of the Monkey Islands.

These are PC games I miss. I thought I gave away my Wing Commander Prophecy; found it in an old box last week. Woot! I still have all the ultimas (although 8 and 9 could go up in flames at any point and I wouldn't care). Diablo 1 and 2 are gone, and I am sad. The Incredible Machine still taunts me with memories of entertaining bliss. Eye of the Beholder 1 and 2 (3 is NOT missed). Final Fantasy XI was sooo good. I may just end up playing it on Xbox360.

As to consoles, I miss many, many games.

The original Metroid. I have the Zeldas, but I miss the first 3 breath of fires, and Kung Fu Chaos. That game is just so much fun. Dammit.

Final Fantasy 1,6 and 7, Dragon Warrior, Streets of Rage, SMB1, 2, 3, Super Mario World, Mario64, Bionic Commando (damned hard), Panzer Dragoon Orta.

Cripes, I'm filled with regret.  :shock:   :?  :cry:  crybaby

1-9 = 1-9
10 -> 15 = a, b, c, d, e, f

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexadecimal


Erm. Let's not forget the important character 0.

decimal is from deca (means 10)
hexadecimal is from hex and decimal (6and10 or "16")

smile Normal math (common use) is decimal or Base10. Basically, it means each character is out of a possible 10 combinations. Hex extends it by 6 characters to be a total of 16 values in one character. Since there isn't a common character following, they substitute letters to mean :
0 = zero
1-9 = one to nine
A = ten
B = eleven
C = twelve
D = thirteen
E = fourteen
F = fifteen
There is no sixteenth character; 0 (zero) counts (although it's just a placeholder for null).

Remember grade 4 math, with the "ones" column, the "tens" column, "hundreds" column, etc? This is how it breaks down:

Base10 is 0,1-9  ... so the number 4023 = (4x1000) + (0x100) + (2x10) + (3x1)
Base16 is 0,1-9,A-F ... so the number FB7 = (15x16) + (11x16) + (7x1)

FB7 is the Hex form of 4023. You can doublecheck by running windows calculator, and turning it to scientific. Type in 4023 and then on the left click on the Hex radio button.

Shortening the separation procedure may also help. You're doing the bath, story and then staying with him until he's asleep. That's a lot of full-time attention and it may be setting the expection contrary to reality. Maybe give him some time between events to be alone and just play (so you'd be starting your process earlier). I'd also suggest trying to put him in bed, give him a loving kiss and telling him goodnight, and then leaving the room and closing the door. He needs to develop the skill of going to sleep on his own.

On the other hand. the games you mentioned would also be cheaper in the future. You can also rent em and be a little more discerning on your purchase. I can tell you Burnout Revenge is really good, but it doesn't feel quite as fun as Burnout 3.
