if you re-import your account on a different XBOX, any other instances are invalidated and require reauthentication (so CC info etc required).

Use someone's Xbox Live connection to pull down your account. If you don't know anyone with live, I'd be happy to help. ::shrug::

Actually, I think the lamest moment is in MGS2 where Jack's talking to his girlfriend, having a long dialogue about their past and future relations... in the middle of a 'ing mission to save the world.


heh : check out the MGS commentary on VGCats.com.

As to lamest moment ever? I'd have to say the Syndicate end scene ranked right up there. The ending to Ultima 9 was also an effen eyesore.

oh, and the hand monsters in zelda (WW) that drag you to the beginning of the dungeon suck ass.

Xbox360 : IN!

The demo on the OXM disk sold me on it. You're now able to nudge traffic to cause accidents, and the collision with normal cars isn't *instant death*.... you also get the ability to blow up your car during a crash/aftertouch section.

The graphics are beefed up, the feeling of speed is better (I don't know HOW that's possible) and there are more alternate paths / shortcuts.

It's effen eh. (sound it out) biggrin

TOTALLY in.

Oh, and EBGAMES let me trade in 3 xbox1 games for the trade 3 for a free game (the SKU for BR/x360 is in their system). Woot!! 40CAD trade value = 75CAD game.

Bastard guardian. His creepy cameo's throughout Ultima7 had triggered the "I shat my pants" code deep within my psyche. Of course, I had the volume cranked... biggrin

You could also go for something like this :

Binaura single speaker dolby 5.1 sound system

It takes all the standard audio inputs (stereo, digital co-axial S/PDIF, optical), and with one speaker and the sub / amplifier, it produces the 5.1 effects a-frickin-mazing.

The sound is solid and spaced well, I was soo impressed (saving private ryan was superb with the bullet whizzing etc).

Here's a few pics:

Quote from: "TheMissingLink"
I don't mind being called a fanboy.  What's really wrong with absolutely loving something?


It's not the "loving something" that brings in the Rage, (pun intended slywink, it's the lack of respect for that persons ability to use critical thinking to determine what is just their own appreciation for the product, and the inability to recognize the flaws.

A fanboy is as annoying as a parent who's "little Johnny" can do *NO* wrong. I don't label myself a fanboy; if someone wants to critizice my opinion and they bring valid points, I may concede based on the facts provided. I love Dynasty Warriors, but it is (for a lot of people) the same game repackaged over and over again. And it's a repetitive beat-em-up with some performance issues that loses a lot of people in the names and bad english voice-overs. Am I still loving the game? Fuck yeah! Those facts don't negatively impact my enjoyment of the game.

I may be "gay" for Dynasty Warriors, but I know why, and am able to see flaws. My name is Justin, and I am *NOT* a fanboi.


The more you know...
"gay" is used in the last season of the Simpsons as a popular phrase in the future. eg. Hetz is gay for xbox360, Knightshade is gay for tactical military shooters, or U2K is gay for many obvious reasons. No wait, strike that last one.  :twisted:

Burnout3, Jade Empire both can't be copied anyways. (trust me, I've tried slywink )

16984  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No game saves transfer to 360 on: September 04, 2005, 07:10:06 PM
I'm not at all phased by this. Also, there may be a context missed (they may have been citing content that CAN'T be transferred, rather than you CAN'T transfer content. I haven't read the article, and you know the product isn't out yet so there's no point worrying about it.

I may get a PS3, but damn them if it's too much. I can justify $399 + 1 controller, 2 charge packs and maybe a WiFi NIC, but I will NOT spend 599 + accessories for a PS3... the fact that they're putting non-standard hardware (cell chip is "new" which means the only supply is through Sony... rare = expensive) plus the blu-ray (and how much extra is THAT going to cost the consumer).

My old games aren't that important. I had a PS1 and I had a PS2 for a while. I don't tend to look back and sink hours into old games. Halo2, Halo, maybe Oddworld and a few games here and there of Phantom Dust. Everything else I'll play is likely new.

I've essentially decided on buying a stereo system. The question is which.

My budget limit is $200, although I can stretch it if the stereo is THAT good.

Any recommendations?


Yeah. stay away from mini component stereos.

Your 200 goes into tape decks, cds  etc... go with a logitech 5.1 system (the one with the THX is what I have).

My speakers kick .. loud!

You should look for what kind of hookup connections you need.

Just so I can be clear about this...

We will have the availability of a more precise control option with faster aiming speed for first-person shooter games.  And we're complaining about this?

Because more precision and faster aiming speeds are a bad thing?


No. The mouse is awesome. It's just too bad Sony isn't stepping up to the plate to design another interface for the other hand that better complements the needs for motion than a Keyboard.

Something like the gaming claw or the strategic commander with tweaks to ensure they don't suck ass.

Quote from: "Eno"
So you get a thumbstick for analog movement (which I think anyone will agree is superior to WASD)

i strongly disagree...


And you're entitled to it, even if you're dead wrong.

WSAD is horrid for movement. Look at Splinter Cell and what they had to do to introduce creeping vs walking vs running. The mouse wheel?? Lets not even get into the whole only 8 actual directions to move. N-NW-W-SW-S-SE-E-NE is lame. On top of that, your keyboard traditionally would only allow so many keystrokes at the same time, so you're holding SHIFT to crouch, A and W to walk forward/left, and then hitting G to throw a grenade and it doesn't read the G cuz you've already got 3 keys held down. The last thing is the staggered keys.. they aren't sitting in a natural forward/back/left/right position, so it requires some training.

The mouse is precision (as we've been trained to it). That's not to say that something better can't come out though, and although the keyboard is nice if you have a bunch of bound keys; the use of character movement is so blindingly painful that most computer games have scared off the mainstream based on controls.

You like it because you're used to it. You like it because you've not trained yourself. Any. Other. Way. I'm left-handed; to work with a right-hand mouse I had to retrain myself when they came out with trackball controllers that were right-hand-only. Now I game with my right hand on a mouse. Is it better than left? No. I also had to train my left hand for WSAD (I used to game with my left hand on the mouse, and my right hand on the cursor keys or the numpad). Try using your left hand on the "smaller" cursor keys (with a true N/S E/W config)instead of WSAD... not so easy to do.

Keyboards are too limited in their input scheme. I'm really hoping the Revolution changes the input to something radically different. I want innovative, intuitive controls. Dual Analogs make more sense although they're less precise. Lets see what the big N brings to the table.

Until then, I'll enjoy my mouse/keyboard config on PC, and controller on my exbox.

Our thanksgiving is in October. biggrin ... the only stat holiday we have in November is the 11th; Remembrance Day (for fallen soldiers who die protecting our way of life and the freedoms of our allies).

As to Black Friday, well, that's just a giant retail monster to fuck over the masses. I used to support AT&T WorldNet (tier 2 tech support) for ~4 years, among other products like AT&T@Home, RoadRunner, etc... I've gotta say, Black friday is a day where you can come into work so drunk you can't even speak and it won't affect your work. As I understand it, your crazy long weekend causes more traffic and more mail transferred than Christmas time. Yikes!

First of all, both of your examples are NULL, dude.
No Team Ninja games allow save games to be copied to a memory card.
I don't think Burnout3 allows it's savegame to be copied either (I tried; I had to send my exbox in for repair).

You *may* still be able to copy savegames with the MegaXKey (as it's a USB key with an adapter for the Xbox controller port).

I have one; I'll let you know.

I'd also suggest (after RAM and CPU seating) swapping the P/S ... if this is a tin-can PS it could be introducing the problem.

How much did you pay for it? If it was less than $50-75 (or bundled with a cheaper case) I'd suggest buying a replacement from a store that accepts returns with no restocking fee. Even if it "worked" with your other config, it should be considered suspect- everything you do relies on it.

And as to the canadian army helping; We have 3 good reasons :

1) if you were hit with a glacier we'd be happy to help... but we're unfamiliar with this "wa'-ter" thing.
2) You wouldn't let us in to help, especially considering we eat our own beef.
3) In the last military cooperation the US bombed Canadian troops while they were engaged in military practices *within* the area that the US army designated.  :angry: One of many of Murphy's Military laws "Friendly fire ISN'T."

I truly hope that my government offers aide in other means to both the New Orleans and surrounding areas, however I'm not sure I'd like our "army of one" (:x) going down there.

Looking at the other damage (oil platforms) being hit: it hastens the need for change in the automotive / energy industries to focus on renewable energy sources. If Mr. Bush and his puppeteers think that people will stand to wait paying 5bucks a litre for gas at the pumps, they've grossly underestimated the ingenuity of the open world market. Who knows, some company in China may offer a radical shift in what they can produce in terms of portable energy, and then the "big 3" and the oil conglomorates and their collusion will fall. Viva la Revolution!

You think of people stuck in their attics trying to get out and drowning, or people being told to "Go" ... go WHERE ? to the magical palace in their forest utopia to live like kings?? That kind of statement is crass and uncalled-for. Grow up, or get lost. :\

There, I've taken some of the bait. ::sigh::

As to the (as -LE- put it) obvious troll post : I hated Evo.  Evo was uninspired. Boring. Sure it was a full meal, but it lacked... spice.

That old racing game where you had front-end loaders racing dump trucks, now THAT was the bomb. I forget what it was called; they always had funny sound clips playing, like :"Hey that ain't mah bellybutton" "well that ain't my finger neither!"

For off-roading, I'd suggest Test Drive 3. Man, did you guys ever find the Xwing fighters landing behind the airport on the second level ? I used to race up the ridge and launch myself into the planes that were trying to land.
