If you've ever played the launch the penguin game, this one is a more crude version. (as you can't get perpetual orbits a lot of the time; the border interferes).

First try got me ~2700 (don't remember exactly).

16775  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.

When you talk to her (she's likely to call; I mean, she DID kiss you goodbye)... be into her, but keep the conversation short. Make her want to see you.

Say something like I don't have much time right now Jessica, we'll have to make this quick... that way she feels like she's got to put a bit of herself into the conversation. Don't be afraid to end the call before you get all mushy or get to the "uhm, so howya doiiiin'" lulls. End it on a high note, and be very inviting during the call.

She's going through the EXACT SAME crap, or if she's more practiced she's already figured out what she wants to do.

Good luck LE.. I'd laugh if she turned out to be one of the 12 people responsible for the messages posted under U2K/General. slywink Remember to keep the conversation short, cite busy-ness, and that you'd like to get together. Keep a sense of humour about this, and don't worry if you don't hear from her for a few days. I'd call again 2 days after I left the voicemail... you don't want to be forgotten.

Yeah the only restriction that Apple tries to impose is that they don't want you to be able to move music from the iPod to your PC.  Its easy to work around but they are trying to avod having someone go over to a buddy's house and fill his iPod with his buddy's music and then upload it to his PC.


Just get the iPod plugin for WinAmp. I don't even use iTunes. Blech. MMD3 skin on Winamp 5.x with iPod plugin, and everytin's A-o-tay!
16788  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I think I need to quit gaming for a while on: October 14, 2005, 06:17:36 PM
Half-Life 2, Halo 1 & 2, Dynasty Warriors Version 3,4 and 5, Burnout 3 (and revenge is really good too). RE4 and Zelda have also entertained me beyond the point of remembering to go to bed. smile

I dunno, I tend to be a cynical gamer, but I love me a few games that feel worth it to slog through the mediocre (such as the Hulk slywink ). I used to love Anime RPGs, but since not having a PS2 for 3 years, I've been out of touch with them. I tried to go back, but frankly the ones I've tried (FF8 and FF9) were so overwrought and predictable I lost interest.

I'd also have to say some of the TC games have been enough to keep me going; multiplayer LIVE is a definate IN~ for me.

This was supposed to happen in Fable. If you didn't get your ass in gear, you may have found another set of adventurers leaving the dungeon (cleared of items and the treasure) and you could contratulate them, pout, or kick their ass and loot them.

As I see it, I'm all for games with reasonable time limits. I don't like the whole "keep-up" game, and a games time has to be tempered with the controller complexity.

Key plot points should be "missable" based on a reasonable time.
