2441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ps2 on hdtv on: February 21, 2005, 01:54:42 PM
As mentioned above, not too many PS2 games use HD (or, rather, 480p) but those that do look great. Gran Turismo IV is going to use 1080i, and from what I've read it looks amazing.

My cable messed up for about 5 seconds during the show and I think I missed something. Can anyone tell me how Charlie got a gun? Did it fall from Jack when he was fighting or something? I missed the beginning of that fight.


Yeah that's exactly what happened.

Hmm.  Wasn't Duke UNC on at that time?  For Shame, Carolina "fan", for shame!


The game started 5 minutes later.  :mrgreen: But don't get me started on that.... (or just check OO)  crybaby

I'm looking for GBA games (Mario & Luigi, Zelda: The Four Swords, etc) or possibly newish PC games (used WoW maybe?). But I am open for all offers (for every system). Email or PM me. Thanks.

2447  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why is it so hard for them to honor our rebate requests? on: February 01, 2005, 02:12:36 PM
I got screwed by a Best Buy rebate a couple of years ago for 60 bucks.. That still pisses me off.

Has anyone tried the new "easy" Staples rebates? It looks like nothing needs to be mailed - just type in the UPC code online and a few other things. I hope more stores convert to this type of rebate plan, though I doubt they will since they plan on people not getting in the correct forms.
2448  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any Zelda impressions? on: January 27, 2005, 12:52:54 AM
I finished it yesterday. Is easily my favorite game so far for the GBA (though I've only played about 5). I didn't find all the secrets, though (I didn't realize I was in the last dungeon until it was too late).

The question is whether the game will be in 3-D like the last PS2 one or in 2-D side-scrolling goodness.

It is most definitely 3D...here are the scans from Play Magazine.  The only 2D Castlevania games you'll be seeing will be on handhelds till the end of the world I would guess.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo is an absolute classic.  Love that game.  Though, a friend somewhat "spoiled" me in showing me how to win


Super Puzzle Fighter is one of the best. What's that tactic, though? I've played that game for years and haven't seen anything that's unbeatable or fullproof.

Heh, someone needs to inform them that Chronicles of Riddick now goes for 29.99 new.  They have it for 49.99 pre-played.


In-store they have it for much less. When I got it from them a couple of months ago, I believe it was already down to $22.

Any idea whether this program will automatically detect and configure wireless devices used for console gaming? Getting my X-Box to work online everytime I want to play is a hassle I could do without.

Sure, we may find more out about the Toy Plane.  But in the end, its still just a stupid toy plane.  There is never anything juicey and real in these shows.  Its just some sentimental Toy plane, or a Letter, or a fathers empty coffin.  Its kinda getting me annoyed.  

Why can't someone actually be bad?  They were so close to painting Kate in an interesting and different light and then they made her kill 3 people over a toy plane?  Weak.

I agree that the Doc is getting boring.  I don't look forward to seeing him anymore either.  My favorite characters now are Hurley and Sawyer.

Last, if the Shannon hooks up with Sayeed I am goign to puke.


Kate did not kill people over a toy plane.  kate killed people becuse they went against the plan; they where never supposed to hurt anyone.   As for the doc i gotta agree, im really starting to hate him.  


A friend of mine is one of those people that reads spoilers all the time.  He informs me that in 3 or 4 weeks we will finaly get Hurley's story, and i cant wait for that.   He was right about tonight being Kate #2 so he might be right about that too.


And it is possible that what was in the envelope during the bank robbery is not the same thing that was in the envelope on the island (since they never did show Kate open the envelope in the flashback).

Here's the lyrics to the song:

Quote
Charles Trenet
» La Mer

La mer
Qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d'argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants
Sous la pluie

La mer
Au ciel d'été confond
Ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs
La mer bergère d'azur
Infinie

Voyez
Près des étangs
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
Voyez
Ces oiseaux blancs
Et ces maisons rouillées

La mer
Les a bercés
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d'une chanson d'amour
La mer
A bercé mon coeur pour la vie


And here's a rough translation, as best I understand it:

The sea
That we see dance along the clear gulfs
has reflections of silver.
The sea
of changing reflections
under the rain

The sea
Of the summer sky confuses
Its white sheep.
With angels so pure
The sea rocks with azure (?)
Infitite

See
Near the ponds
These large wet reeds
See
These white birds
And these rusted houses

The sea
rocked them along the clear gulfs
And with a song of love
The sea
rocked my heart for the life (?).

Has anyone found a work around for this problem? I just got the game (the DVD Limited Edition version) today through a trade, and I keep having problems installing the game. I get a message halfway through installation telling me the the file proga~1.cab is corrupt. I read on one of the message boards that this might be due to certain DVD-drives rather than an actual corrupted disk. My drive is a Lite-on, also.

2463  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cable HDTV vs DirectTV/Tivo on: December 17, 2004, 06:35:29 PM
When we got an HDTV, we did notice that the analog channel didn't look as good as they had. I think it was just because the tv had more lines of resolution and so we could see the flaws in the picture better. After a couple of days, however, I got used to it and never really notice it anymore. To be honest, I didn't think it was that drastic a change in picture quality. That said, the beauty of HD is definitely worth the picture degradation of the other the lower channels.
2464  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cable HDTV vs DirectTV/Tivo on: December 17, 2004, 06:12:08 PM
Could it be that the picture was stretched out to fit your tv? Did your wife try viewing a HD channel to see how the picture looked?
2465  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Fantasy Football] Playoff Roster Question on: December 17, 2004, 03:27:09 PM
Easily PIT. Just look at the Bal/NYG game for an example of how bad Eli can be (3 tournovers by himself). Add to that the fact that Barber has regained his fumblitis and the Giants O-line is awful, and it seems that PIT should be a good start.

Actually, I had a similar situation a couple of years ago. In general, we had the cat and dog sleep in the same area. After a bit of hesitation, our cat got used to the dog and they would even sleep curled up together.

It's a great game, I played and finished it on the xbox. It doesn't touch HL2, though, IMO.


I concur. To update the "greater than" game listing above:

I think you're selling Duck Hunter short.

PS2: Kingdom Hearts, Hot Shots Golf Fore!

X-Box: Thief 3, Deus Ex: Invisible War, Chronicles of Riddick, possibly Fable

Let me know if any of those seem interesting.
2479  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / HDTV - my new passion on: December 08, 2004, 04:32:56 PM
Quote from: "JSHAW"
One thing that I've noticed when watching FOX sunday football on HD vs. the regular fullscreen broadcast is that there's a time delay of about 5 seconds. The regular broadcast is normal and the same game broadcast in HD is 5 seconds behind.

Maybe this is just an issue I have with Adelphia, maybe not? Anybody else have this issue with their local cable provider?

Another thing I've noticed is that one of my local TV channels audio is delayed about 2-3 seconds behind their normal broadcast. When watching the HD broadcast on the specific channel the lips aren't synched with the audio. It only happens when watching their nightly 5-6 o'clock news. It's a CBS affiliate.


HD Monday Night football is usually a couple of seconds behind the normal feed. I think the HD delay fairly common when watching live sports.

P.S. I'm on Time Warner Cable, so I don't think it's due to your provider.
