16401  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / GTOfficial x360 Live Scoreboard (Bandwidth Warning) on: February 14, 2006, 10:09:53 PM

I still want to know why they haven't made it where you can add to your Friends List via the internet. :p  Typing things in is just a lot easier than pecking with the controller.

Granted, this isn't an issue with the 360, but for those of us with Xboxes...

Plug a USB keyboard in, it's MUCH better. biggrin

I wasn't in the beta long. I think you're thinking of another Stabbetty. Perhaps they saw my name in FFXI before the beta? slywink Read above, I explained how I got the name.

Doh! you're right, it's BST, not RNG.

I never played either (although one of my buddies did).

I had all the jobs unlocked (Stabbetty on Phoenix server) I just never bothered. Once I had SAM and NIN, i didn't want to go back to anything else. biggrin

Whoa whoa whoa!! Were you the Stabbety from the WoW Alpha/Beta? or did you just copy and or randomly find that name from elsewhere???


I *AM* Stabbetty.

Always was, always will be.

I am Stabbetty on FFXI server Phoenix (first iteration) and then joined the WoW beta, and then moved onto WoW proper. (I was Stabbetty in the Almost Heroes Guild).

I made up the name... I was going to be a TaruTaru BLM (male) in tribute to Black Mage ( ) and go with the name Stabbitty (Stabbity-Death is a BM patented move from the comic), but was disappointed with the Taru model.

I then decided if I was going to sink hundreds of hours into this, perhaps I should be lookin' at a CUTE rear-end rather than a guys, so I went Mithra THF ... and eventually NIN / SAM.  Stabbitty looked funny, but StabbEtty looked right. It stuck. In WoW i was YANER (Yet Another Night Elf Rogue -female).

If you were brave, you could get at least 2 arms destroyed (and the 3rd badly injured) on the first dive. then hide behind a corner, collect some health, and repeat. Dead in 2 dives.

of course, I didn't kill him in 2 dives the first time around. it was 5 or 6, figuring out what to do.

16410  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF7 Advent Children voice actors, details on: February 12, 2006, 12:33:35 PM
Quote from: "depward"
I don't know.  Maybe I'm thinking too much into it, but I dislike the idea of having "mainstream" people do voice work for FFVII Advent Children.  I don't want to be listening to Tifa and think, "Oh, that sounds like Jessica Alba . . ."  Then again, I guess I also don't want no-name people who would do a shoddy job.

Eh, I'm hard to please   biggrin   It was a cool movie!

+1 ... I found that the big-name talent in FF:spirits within detracted from the characters, given that the characters in NO WAY resembled the actors doing their voice.

Disney has always altered their characters to slightly resemble the voice actor; it makes the sounds match the shape... ( think of sebastien without the lip, or Kronk a skinny little pipsqueak)

On the other hand he didn't disclose WHICH title he was working on, therefore not costing sales. slywink  I can think of a few "get it out the door titles" for console launches.... like pretty much ALL of them. (Including Halo with it's Library level, poor net-code etc...)
16416  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 artist fired for small criticism of console on: February 09, 2006, 09:06:14 PM
I think that yeah, he's a bit of an idiot for "biting the hand that feeds" but Sonys reaction to it was to make an example of him.

I don't think the punishment fit, given the fact that none of the information fell into NDA-breaking territory. It sounds like he doesn't much care right now, but I'd feel the odds would be in his favour in a  wrongful dismissal case.

Quote from: "Kevin Grey"
The people working on 360 titles are workers from other developers.

As I understand it, SOE isn't "Sony Corp", it's a subsiduary company (which has an Xbox360 title (FFXI). In the interview he mentions being taken down to Sony Corp. and THEY fired him.

It would be like An Olive Garden employee stating he wasn't impressed with Red Lobsters seafood menu and getting fired for it.

(General Mills owns both Olive Garden and Red Lobster or at least they did when I worked for them).

They are  two different product lines, and per the interview he states he never broke any NDA's.
16418  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 artist fired for small criticism of console on: February 09, 2006, 05:38:09 AM
he's not a sony employee; his blog mentions co-workers working on xbox360 titles.

There were a few developers commenting on the poor execution of hardware that the 360 dev kits. Search this forum if you need references, I'm sure there were threads on "OMG 360 devs complaining" or somesuch. pre-nov21 it was big news.

I never tried going through the forest without it.

You should be able to go back through the forest. Good luck man !! (I just got the lift skill to lift boulders last night... kinda stuck right now myself.

16421  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 artist fired for small criticism of console on: February 07, 2006, 11:29:45 PM
I doubt this was his first blog entry, and the fact that they fired him is abysmal. MS had to contend with nay-sayers before the 360 launch; you didn't get firings hitting the news because of honesty. Not only did he drop disclaimers stating the tech shortcomings are 'just what he heard' he also doesn't say that the PS3 is less capable than the 360.

Weak, Sony. Next you'll have us burning books that speak against Sony.

I don't think this is a career-ending move. If he's a talented artist, he will get another job with another company... so long as they aren't a Sony exclusive house.

except you can't lean in CoD2 for Xbox360. It is "consoled" but it's also VERY immersive.

As for PDZ ... I bought it and don't regret it. It's a lot of fun. Kameo is great too, and so is Amped 3 (get past the cheesy stuff and the game really shines).

I'll keep my Burnout and My Interstate 76 seperate, thanks.


I didn't like the demo. It was like eating a chicken salsa wrap and Maple Walnut Ice Cream at the same time.

I love both, but NOT together.  It was too much of a pain to keep track of two different boost meters, EVERYTHING EXPLODING IN FRONT OF YOU, and the rubber-band-like catchup the AI seemed to have.

Burnout Revenge on the Xbox was awesome... I hope the 360 one is "kicked up a notch". IN for sure.

Seriously, you are all going to hell.

I feel bad for the number 6 (I think). She'd obviously been crying, and these charges are pretty lame considering the government is doing NOTHING in protecting these women from being taken advantage of by the establishments.

You really think the "clubs" aren't saying Hit it or hit the road?

Clearly there are some questionable "stripper" material out there, but I've got to say I've known a few women go from a 4 to an 11 out of 10 with 20 min worth of makeup and a mirror. (no, that's not 20 min of ME drinking simultaneously you callous asses.. slywink )

And yea, I'm sure SOMEONE will make the joke #23 HAS a callous ass. (beat you to it, WBS)

I don't know that ALL of these women were strippers; it seems like it was a general sting op, and barbacks, bartenders, waitresses, dancers and (*clearly a few bouncers*) were caught in the net.

Seriously ... Exposure, Sale Alchohol... WTF??? Isn't that what they're SUPPOSED TO DO???

I enjoyed Jade Empire, although not the second coming; I felt it needed another year in the oven to be the game it needed to be.

To speed up load times, you could delete excess stuff off the HD, and maybe let it sit and run for a bit. I know some games will use idle time to start caching (Sea Dogs 2 errr Pirates of the Carribbean).

Or, fire the hamster in your xbox and get a sleek new hamster that has been soaking in anabolic steroids.)

Try holding LT and RT down, and slightly release and then reapply (so you're in tuck mode). Seemed to work for me in those damned slalom events.

Also, if you read the Manual*, it looks like multiplayer was yanked last minute.
