2361  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why is there no Lost thread? on: October 20, 2005, 02:17:27 PM
Probably because nothing happened. I mean really, did anything of importance happen? The story didn't move forward at all (except you see the feet of "The Others". Big whoop).
2362  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What games do you wish you'd never sold/traded in? on: October 20, 2005, 01:42:41 PM
I sold Super Puzzle Fighter II: Turbo on Ebay for about $70 a couple of years ago. I regretted it for a long time since I could never find the game anywhere, but then about 8 months ago I found another copy of the game at Blockbuster for $8! So I guess I don't regret selling it so much now.  biggrin
2363  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 vs Playstation 3 on: October 20, 2005, 12:53:56 PM
I'll go for the PS3 just because the Playstation 2 always had more games that I wanted to play. I don't see any reason why this will change for the next generation (and looking at the announced titles for XBox360, that looks like a safe bet). I like the quirky Japanese titles and the TBS games; something which never really appeared on the original XBox. The hardware specs are just secondary to me.

Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"

Her two reasons (she seemed eager to talk about this):

1.)  The feeling of 'not being ready.'

2.)  Fear.

If those are the two main reasons, then you shouldn't be too worried. She just needs someone that she trusts and is extremely comfortable with. If you need to get some within a week or two, you're probably out of luck. But if waiting a couple of months is ok, then you should be good to go.

2368  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 free demo available on: October 18, 2005, 04:25:46 PM
Bump to say that I got my demo yesterday in the mail. Thanks for the link.

As for the demo itself, the parts inside the town seemed pretty cool. I liked the graphics/animation and how you can interact with almost any drawer/chest/bookshelf. And even the odd French accent on a couple of the speaking characters wasn't too bad. For some reason, I got a heavy dose of RPG nostalgia (even with the new graphics); not sure exactly why, but it was good.

Once outside the town, however, I wasn't as impressed. The random battles I can deal with, I suppose. I found the combat to be fairly boring, however. Perhaps it's because the characters are low level and without many powers, but it seemed like combat was just attack-attack-attack-heal-attack-attack-win battle. Sort of blah. Did like to see the slimes again, though.  biggrin

Looks like the expansion will be called "The Burning Crusade" and will allow addicts to jones up to Level 70.  All new grinding!  Yaaay!

How exactly would this work? If you don't buy the expansion, you can only level to 60 but there would be other characters at level 70? If that's the case, wouldn't any non-expansion players be at a distinct disadvantage (especially those on a PvP server)?

Actually, according to posts over at OO, turns out the PC they were using was

Test machine:
P4 3.4 GHz, 2 Gb RAM, GeForce 6800 c 256 Mb, with all settings maxed out and resolution 1024x768 averaged about 20 FPS outdoors and noticeably more indoors.
Of course, it's a month old beta, yet... prepare to sell your kiddies for organs and your wives into slavery - you'll need FAST rig for this game.

If she likes you, she won't give a shit about when you called (that is, unless you waited too long). But if she is turned off that you called her the next day, then she's probably too shallow to bother dating anyway.

2376  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW expansion pack playable at Blizzcon on: October 12, 2005, 05:38:43 PM
All I'm saying is that if the expansion is only adding high level stuff, I (me, no one else) doesn't have need for it since I have no high level characters. Now if it added mostly high level stuff but also added a couple of new classes, I'm sure I'd be one of the first in line for it since that's something I can use. In no way was I saying that there isn't a need for more high level content - just that it wouldn't affect me right now.

2378  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW expansion pack playable at Blizzcon on: October 12, 2005, 03:22:37 PM
If the expansion is mainly for upper level folks (hero classes etc), then I'll have no reason to buy it unless I eventually get to a high level. What do I care about new races for? They don't really change the gameplay that much (and I assume that even non-expansion purchasers will be able to play along side the new races even if they can't be one). The gameplay is all about classes, not races.

Wow - Kerry Collins did look like a zombie. Maybe there's something we don't know about him.....  :shock:

But really, as you mentioned, Plummer looks nothing like him either. I mean, hell, if you're going to scan the faces of 200 players, shouldn't you at least get the big positions like QB for every team? Especially since they're the faces you'll probably see most often. At least the made Janikowski a fatty like real life.

edit: And what's with the two fumbles in two offensive plays? I hope that's just a coincidence.

Quote from: "whiteboyskim"
I figure that the security system might be something derived from the magnetic phenomena the research center (circa: 1980) was meant to unravel. The polar bears and the "sickness" might also have been caused by the "accident."

The video mentioned that they were doing zoological research (and even showed polar bears), so that could explain those aspects of the bears and shark (i.e. possibly doing genetic research on animals).

As for why only 1 of the six orientation films was present; it seemed as though there was supposed to be one film for each research station. At the beginning, the film had something like "Orientation 3 of 6 - Swan Island" written along the bottom. I imagine that there are 6 different research stations on 6 different islands, each with their own film.

Quote from: "Kevin Grey"

The other 2 GBA Castlevania games are excellent- Harmony of Dissonance is generally considered the worst of the GBA pack with Aria of Sorrow (the DS prequel) by far considered the best.  Play Aria of Sorrow before the DS game.  

Where in the world can you find Aria of Sorrow? I've looked all over my local stores on multiple occasions and have never found it. One time, on calling my EB, they said that they had recently gotten in a used copy. I rushed over there only to find out that he had confused Aria of Sorrow with Circle of the Moon.  frown

Back on topic, Symphony of the Night rocks like Castlevania game has rocked since (or before, for that matter, though Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest was pretty good).

And Super Metroid is the best of the side scrolling Metroid games. I think they have a version of it on the GBA now.

If I were a betting man (I am, but not in relation to if games will be buggy on release), I would bet that if the XBox360 version of Oblivion is released on the XBox's launch date but the PC version is delayed any significant amount of time (i.e. more than a week), beware of the bugs.

 I think the graphics will look more polished in the final version, especially in a higher quality video.  It will probably be like when Madden moved from the PSone to the PS2.  The first year on the PS2 wasnt that big of a leap, but the following year was quite a large improvement.

Graphically, Madden's leap from PS1 to PS2 was huge. My brother and I stood in line at midnight to get a PS2 just because of the enormous graphical differences between the two Maddens. I was completely blown away.

Here's the PS1 Madden 2001:

Here's PS2 Madden 2001:

The difference between the current versions of Madden and the X-Box 360 version isn't nearly as wide.
