"There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here, you are all equally worthless."


That's the tamest quote from Full Metal Jacket. slywink Glad you didn't dump the "reach-around" one on us. Tongue

New quote -
"He's showing signs of pressure-induced psychosis, and he's got a nuclear weapon. So as a personal favor to me, will you try to put your tongue in neutral for a while? "

Quote from: "Thin_J"
I don't know, regardless I just couldn't sit and read "jimmyorr99" 's post and not say something.

I haven't read a statement on these baords where I got the vibe that the person giving criticism hadn't actually played the game in a long time, if ever. Sort of pushed one of my buttons I suppose.


I've been known to use the phrase : "Cherish your experiences; use silence to respect that which you know nothing about." That's why I'm generally not in the sports section of the forums. slywink

I dunno if jimmy hadn't played it, or just hadn't given it a fair shake. Since both games are Ubi/Clancy, there's really no "knockoff" status as they both cater to firearms conflict; but the scope of each rarely overlap.

Quote from: "Thin_J"
I'm forced to wonder.. have you even played[/i] any of the Ghost Recon games? Cheap knock-off of Rainbow Six?


I agree. The Rainbow 6 team is an anti-terrorist squad-based combat; usually in urban settings. It's Counterstrike, done with Clancy and way more atmosphere.

The Ghosts are recon for field work, and are the "Silent tip of the arrow" in preventing full scale wars. That's right from the intro, although I'm sure the quote is wrong.

On the PC I'd say R6 : Raven Shield is the better game (as you can still do mission planning, maps are larger, and there's way more weapons). On Xbox, I ultimately prefer GR although RS isn't a bad game by any stretch of the imagination.

Hard Vanilla ice cream smothered in a VERY dark semi-sweet dip.
Place in a cone and sprinkle with walnuts or roasted almond flakes while the chocolate is hardening.... If you premix the ice cream with amaretto, it won't be as hard, but the dip will hold it well enough. The taste is...[salivation]

Quote from: "Lockdown"
Both games are fantastic.
But they are a little different.
[...]

There you have it... brief-style.  In case it isn't obvious, I love both games, and could never choose between the two.

If you still aren't sure, figure out if you want more outside long range type missions, or more close quarters type missions.  That may help you decide.


1. "You have a targeting cursor only" - True... which means you see more in GR but don't get to see the cool modelling. It's neither good or bad; it's the smallest factor (for me). I'd say the targetting reticule is the bigger difference; GR is less forgiving than RS3 and RS3:BA as it requires you to AIM. Tongue

2.  Rather than focusing on sniper rifles, focus on shotguns. If you take a shotty in GR (I don't recall if there IS one) you'd die. A lot. The range of the sub, assault and sniper class rifles are (generally) required to get the job done.

3.  "Ghost Recon uses an older engine, and it shows..." VERY MUCH so. Raven Shield looks better. Functionally, it's not as vast as the GR series and the graphics are more immersive in GR than Raven Shield. In RS3; basically you're shooting people around corners, and the triggers are really obvious.

4.  "Ghost Recon has some pretty kick-ass atmosphere."  I agree. GR brings surround sound and shows you how to use it.  I didn't find RS3 to be much help with it, although the voice comm was fantastic. The thing is, GR lets you move your troops via a map which is much nicer (overall)

5.  " Black Arrow has more options for multiplayer " And bullets miss people, and it's just an expansion pack for 40US. I have it; I'm gonna be trading it in for Fable. I've already beat the crap outta RS3 (original), so it's been traded. I don't own any GR right now, Island Thunder was the same thing as RS3:BA (should have had more; added a ton of new weapons and *way* more maps to be truly enjoyable).

I'd recommend getting either RS3 or RS3:BA used (they're practically the same game) or either GR or GR:IT used. Save your "new" title for GR2 this fall. It apparently goes 3rd person; but it does mean you have a better peripheral vision. Plus there's a 1st person mode for the better gamers.

and *that* is my humble opinion.

I'm in no way surprised that playing soccer with a person's head will be shown, but having sexual relations with someone else is blacked out all in the same game. It shows where American censors' values and opinions lay, in my opinion.

If I'm reading that right, that means that my betaing experience will be seperate from all your laggy people over on the server that was never, ever, meant to take that kind of load. biggrin



Unless they don't get their required numbers Tongue

Then they'll say:
 "Hey, TIM. Get on the slow server and create and account. Get to it. We need you there, or you lose your beta status. RFN. Go. Why are you still here? 1.... 2.... don't make me get to 3.... 2.5 .... 2 and three quarters...."

17215  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wanna get into the WoW Beta? on: August 29, 2004, 01:29:22 PM
I'm in. Tongue

If memory serves me, the form I filled out had a "Check here to be considered for the standard Beta Test".

As to being on a separate server Tim, I doubt it. You're in a beta test, and they want their servers hammered as much as possible. That likely means they want *all* testers working on load testing. Or they might just ask you guys to log into the other server and create a new account.
[shrug]

I just want to see the basics of the game; I'm not expecting much. I've been involved in stress tests and betas before; neither is as much fun as playing the game [post-release].  Cool

Quote from: "happydog"
Is this true? Kind of makes me mad  :evil:

For some reason I was under the impression that once you purchased a download, that it would be linked to your Live account and you could download it again at no charge. But now that I got my account transfered over, this does not seem to be the case. And thinking about it I can see many resons for it, but it is still a bit of a ripoff.


Call 1-800-4my xbox and tell em your last XBOX died and you need to download it to your new XBOX.. the purchase should be tied to your account, not the device.
17218  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Xbox saves transfer question on: August 23, 2004, 02:54:09 AM
Quote from: "stiffler"
I am assuming that the device mentioned is similar to the Max Drive.  I am still trying to find one locally so that I may upload the fan-made rosters for NCAA Football 2005.


MegaXKey is the original device; they have a DB of downloadable saves. Also, if you have a modded box you can do stuff like (rolls eyes) apply nude patches to DOAXVB, etc. You can also use this to use the memory overflow exploit (James Bond savegame is one of them) to run Linux on an unmodded box.

The three urls you'll want are :
Order: http://www.megaxkey.com/index.php?section=order
Saves DB: http://www.megaxkey.com/pafiledb.php
Alt. Saves DB: http://www.xbox-saves.com/index.php?category=saves

Purge, it wasn't shot down.   the cobalt theme is a prototype and an unfinished work in progress  Most of the features such as the graphical link will be as it is in subsilver most likely.

sigh.


Sorry; didn't mean anything by it. Your comment in the other thread seemed very decided. smile No worries, bud.

Time is a valuable commodity; don't waste any of it on the cobalt comment. I prefer the look and feel of cobalt over having a link to to sooth my lazy whining ass. smile Silver is pretty much default; as such it's too bright for me to look at all the time.

In a round-about way I'm sayin' Cobalt 2.0 rocks. biggrin Link or no link.

Cool, I'll look into that. Thanks.


If I hadn't sold my old Xbox, I could have answered the question for you as to whether they are or not.

The nice thing about the MegaXKey is that people upload their saves; so if you're just renting a game for a weekend there may be a good savegame to grab if you're stuck, or don't want to deal with a particularly frustrating jumping puzzle.

I found the show to be very un-funny.

I wasn't a big fan of the Seinfeld show (or it's subsequent decade of syndicated re-runs on a half-dozen channels every night), and with the loss of some of the funnier characters that *did* keep people coming back to Seinfeld, CYE is a pathetic shadow to the former Jerry empire.

On my webserver (SuSE Linux, sitting in my living room), I'm trying to set up a statistics app.


What app, specifically? What kind of data collection does it do? Is it active (aka follows visitors) or passive; like Webtrends that does data analysis on log files?

If it's log files, just export them to your analysis server : this means less risk of security (use a scripted FTP transfer daily/weekly, etc) and you're also saving system overhead on your site during analysis.  Cool

Quote from: "happydog"
I will be purchasing a new Xbox this weekend as I have an original  run and am getting disk read errors now. I know I can transfer games saves with a memory card, but what are the limitations? i.e. Friend is saying he can't transfer a Morrowind save because it is too big. Is there an alternative way of doing this? What games might I run into that I can transfer because the save is too big?

Thanks.


MegaXKey; it uses a 32MB USB storage and the cable. you can then use a larger one. The trick is; are they copyable at ALL ?? For instance all saves etc from Tecmo do *not* copy; regardless of size. (copy pretections) ... that's where FTP comes in. <shrug>
