2521  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Amazing info on a spammer on: November 15, 2004, 05:54:02 PM
Quote from: "Balshazaar"
It's interesting to me that this guy and that hacker who was busted a few years ago and sent to federal prison were both from Raleigh, North Carolina.  Why??  That's my hometown.


I would decend into a life of crime, too, if I had to suffer cheering for NC State athletics....
2522  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / The new beta testers' WoW impressions thread! on: November 12, 2004, 10:43:06 PM
I played around for a couple of hours today as a hunter, too (Tauren). So far, I'm enjoying it a good bit more than I did when I was playing as an undead Warlock (granted I only played until level 5). I think it's mainly the beginning area for the Taurens that I prefer. Using a gun is pretty fun, as is my tracking ability (it's a lot easier to find the particular monsters you're looking for if you can just place the cursor over the mini-map to see their names).

2524  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ban on Gay Marriage a winner in 11 states. on: November 11, 2004, 05:42:45 PM
This may have been said many times already since I haven't read the whole thread. But in case it hasn't, here is my view on the issue:

Doesn't the fact the the Bush administration is calling for a Constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage show that at present the Constitution allows for gay marriage? These "activist judges" have just found that the Constitution permits gay marriage; so rather than argue that the Constitution in fact forbids gay marriage, the administration has decided to change the Constitution. It seems to me that act in itself proves that denying homosexuals the right to marry is against the Constitution.
2525  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / The new beta testers' WoW impressions thread! on: November 11, 2004, 02:03:48 PM
I played for about an hour last night as an undead Warlock. So far the game seems pretty fun, though not all that much different than other MMORPG's. I've found the quest system to be nice in that at least I have goals; in a normal MMORPG I'd be killing the same monsters over and over again like I do in WoW, but there would be no goal or real point to it other than leveling. In any case, I plan on trying it some more later today.

2529  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GTA: SA--help on "Life's a Beach" needed. on: November 08, 2004, 06:37:22 PM
For what it's worth, I've noticed that to get a good score on the dancing sections I usually have to push the buttons a bit earlier than I would have thought based on visuals. It seems that the correct timing requires that the buttons be pushed when a little more than half of the icon has just entered the circle.
2530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Corrupted saved games in Rome: Total War? on: November 06, 2004, 02:39:59 PM
Has anyone had their saves in Rome not work? It had been a week or two since I played, but now every time I try to load up my save games, the program crashes to the desktop. It doesn't seem to matter which save game I am loading either. Has anyone experienced this problem and if so do you know of anything that can fix it? Thanks.

Not far from the gym is a dance club where you can practice your moves. I'm not sure exactly where the club is located, but I'm sure you can find a map or something on http://www.gamefaqs.com.

2534  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 10/3 on: November 04, 2004, 03:06:00 PM
Quote from: "wonderpug"
The fireworks annoyed me so much.  Here you've got perfect signal flares to use if you see a passing ship/plane, and you're using them up to signal when it's 5:00.  Kate has a watch, Sayid has a watch, you can't find a third one??  Other than that it was a fun episode, I'm loving this show more and more.


Plus, what planes allow people to carry fireworks? Isn't that one of the strictly forbidden items to take on a flight?

I think the person that hit Sayed is an up-until-now unknown survivor that ended up at a different part of the island. He/She hit Sayed because she thought he caused the plane to crash through terrorism.

Where do I get spray paint for spraying over the graffiti? If the game said anything about it in the mission where the introduced spraying graffiti I guess I missed it.


I believe it's upstairs in your house.

I was just ribbing you guys (though I do think the movies on my list stink). Bruckheimer has made some decent films which I've enjoyed (PoC, The Rock, Beverly Hills Cop, etc).
2553  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / National Treasure on: October 26, 2004, 08:56:20 PM
Jerry Bruckheimer is a good producer? If it pleases the court, I believe that I have six pieces of irrefutable evidence that proves beyond a resonable doubt that Jerry Bruckheimer consitently puts out shit for movies:

1). Kangaroo Jack (2003)
2).Pearl Harbor (2001)
3). Coyote Ugly (2000)
4). Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000)
5). Armageddon (1998)
6). Con Air (1997)

Quote from: "Covenant"
Any word on the mini-map from others?  I'll be kinda bummed if it's unusable, as I consider it to be VERY important for getting around.


I only played for 15 minutes, but from that brief time I wouldn't say that the mini-map is unusable. I didn't really have much of a problem with it (though having played both GTA III and GTA: VC might have helped).

As for the graphics, is there no way to turn off the orange haze? I remember that in VC there was a haziness that could be turned off.

From the bit I played, the game seems pretty cool. My only disappointment so far is that the game doesn't use DTS like VC.

Saw this in my local Best Buy flyer (though I assume it's nationwide). Purchase GTA this week for $49.95 and get any one Greatest Hits game for an additional $4.95. Seems like a pretty good deal if you're willing to wait until Wednesday for the game.
