2521  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Pope. on: April 20, 2005, 12:32:35 AM
Quote from: "El Guapo"
I do have to say, though, that I really don't think the new pope is the most attractive man.

Not only that, but he's married. Check out that wedding ring!  :shock:

Quote from: "Sepiche"

Do the designers of games like these understand the difference between a puzzle and a chore?  The puzzle in the room is simple: find the buttons, open the door, then hit a button and race to get through the door before it closes.  Easy enough.  But everytime I miss a jump I have to go back to when I entered the room... before I fought a long ass battle.  No option to save at any point in the room.


Is this the room where you have to jump over the moving razor blades from platform to platform until you reach an area with multiple doors that need to be opened?

If so, there should be a save point to the left of the room's entrance, right before you jump on the first platform. I saved after I opened any door or killed any monster (it's much easier jumping back to the save point since there is no time limit).
2523  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The anything BUT Jade Empire discussion thread on: April 12, 2005, 01:25:00 PM
Quote from: "Kevin Grey"

This criticism concerns me more than any other:

Less free-roaming and more tightly scripted than KOTOR (there is nothing, naturally, in the Empire that would encourage planet-hopping around the galaxy as in KOTOR), Jade Empire leads you on a tightly controlled path peppered with "optional" quests.

One of my main complaints about KOTOR was that the game was too linear. If this review is accurate, it looks like Jade Empire is worse than KOTOR in that regard.

We also have Shannon and Sayeed hooking up but doing it slowly, which leads me to believe she'll either betray him at some point in the future or actually stick with him.

My guess is that you'll be right......  :wink:

My only complaint about the show tonight - the newborn baby didn't look newborn at all. If they are going to try to have a somewhat realistic birthing scene (did anyone else hear the sounds as the baby came out?  :shock: ), why have a completely clean baby?

I really didn't get the point of the kidney stealing. Locke was giving his dad his kidney anyway, so why does his father then need reject him? Does he just not like Locke? What does the father gain by the deception?

Question - does Progressive Scan make all the difference? I tried to turn it on but apparently my TV doesn't support it. frown

Progressive Scan makes a world of difference; the graphics are much more crisp  in 480p. I do, however, sometimes get some slight distortion with the progressive scan (almost like artifacts). But that is rare enough that I don't really notice it.
2530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Messed up PS2 disc - Any suggestions? on: March 28, 2005, 03:48:48 PM
There's also those DVD/CD restorers you can buy at Best Buy or EB (called the Game Dr. perhaps). I've used it a couple of times before and it usually works (even for deeply scratched games).
2531  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How I got me a PSP! on: March 27, 2005, 06:15:14 PM
Way to go Rob. Keep talking good about the PSP and maybe you can convince my brother to get one.  :wink:

Just as a side note, if anyone is trading in games they might want to try Blockbuster (at least for games for the newer consoles). In general, they give more money than an EB or Gamestop and right now they have a deal where you trade in 3 or more games and get an extra $5 for each one. Add to that deal the fact that Blockbuster almost always has the "buy 2 used games get 1 free deal" and you can really get some good stuff (they usually have newer used games for sale relatively soon). On Thursday, I traded in 4 games and one DVD for more than enough money to get a new copy of God of War from them.  I'm not sure whether you can get cash or if the trade in is only for store credit, though.
2532  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / God of War on: March 25, 2005, 02:38:36 PM
I have a quick question about the widescreen mode - does it actually show more of the screen (like in DVD's) or is the 4:3 screen just made to fit widescreen? Really it boils down to this: with a 4:3 HDTV, should I play the game in full screen mode or in widescreen?

I'm going to put huge magnets in the bumpers of cars all with the same charge (pole?). That way, the two cars will automatically slow each other down before hitting bumpers.
2534  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Spider Man 3 Villian cast...but who is the villian? on: March 22, 2005, 05:06:29 PM
So, based on the ending of the last movie (warning, spoilers ahead), I'm guessing that there will actually be two villians in the next movie - whoever this new villian is and the second Green Goblin?

Now, when they say 'on the short side in length', just how short are they talking about, I wonder?

I read in the new EGM that the game is expected to be around 20 hours. Not necessarily short, but not as long as past Bioware games.

Is that for real? Did she really talk about borrowing her parent's Dodge Caravan for the weekends? Is it possible that someone else sent this out as a joke?

And please, I beg you - give us the link to the picture. She sent it out to a whole law school - she can't be too conserned about privacy.

Gran Turismo IV is going to use 1080i, and from what I've read it looks amazing.

I have my doubts as to whether or not that's actually true.  IGN is the only place reporting that, which flies in the face of every other previous preview that said that they weren't even able to get 480p working well.

This review confirms it as well.
2543  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
2545  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Pirates!, Zelda: The Minish Cap (GBA), HL2, others for trade on: February 10, 2005, 03:12:52 PM
As mentioned I'm looking to trade Pirates! (LE DVD version), the new GBA Zelda game (was great, but I've beaten it) or Half-Life 2 (with Steam account info). Other games include:

Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA)
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA)
Golden Sun (GBA - no box or manual)

Galactic Civilizations
Civilization 3

Deus Ex:IW (X-Box)
Chronicles of Riddick (X-Box)

Hot Shots: Fore! (PS2)

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.

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.
2550  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 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.

Quote from: "ElijahPrice"
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:

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

Près des étangs
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
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 (?)

Near the ponds
These large wet reeds
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 (?).
