7761  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: (360 and PS3) No Love for the Release Version of Civ: Revolution? on: August 02, 2008, 08:27:04 PM
Late to the party here, but just bought the game...and loving it - I'm a big Civ fan, at least, civ 1 and civ 2, never really played after that, but this? damn its great!!

As I posted over on OO, it would seem a small step to make Alpha Centauri, but appearently, Sid Meier doesnt own the rights to that, unfortunately....could have been cool to see the same kind of iteration of it, as Civ revolutions though

managed to do it - and yes, its her... I just equipped my most powerfull rife (for some reason, I was using the old ones, nowhere near as powerfull) and just concentrated on killing her whenever she appeared....worked...

Love the game again ;-)

LOVE IT!?!?! I Just threw my controller through the room, after being killed for the 10th time by the second boss in the game...I HATE HIM!

time for a break

ressurecting this, since I bought the game...

damn its good!! I've never played any of the other games, so, some of the stuff makes absolutely no sense... that Raiden character...

eh, better spoiler it

Spoiler for Hiden:
Is he human? His blood is..silver???

Love the game, the cutscenes, the mini-games stuff, the whole shebang!

about to enter act 3 :-)

just hammer away at the x? Seems like all I see is some glances of something that I have no clue what is...
7768  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metal Gear Solid 4 question on: August 01, 2008, 10:33:02 PM
Hi guys,

just bought this game, and LOVING it...

one thing though..during cutscenes...theres' sometimes an X...what do I do there? I've tried pressing the blue X on the controller, and it seems to show some fragments of something, but...is there other things I can do?

thanks :-)

For mikagami - if you think this is a POS fighter, then what do you suggest as an alternative?  I've looked at VF5o, but never pulled the trigger.

Get VF5o. The BEST fighting system, IMHO, bar none. Oh, and the AI doesn't cheat, either. Nor does it contain crap like Star Wars characters in it. And it has a long 'travel around Japan fighting other 'players' in different arcades' mode that'll more than keep you entertained for a long while without playing against another human player. You can even (to a point) play dress-up in it like you can in SC4.

and, to win games, you can crouch and punch...thats actually all you need to learn...

7773  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The age of re-runs on: August 01, 2008, 12:00:53 PM
Whenever I see new titles for games, or movies, or television shows, I am reminded of Isaac Asimovs stories about the robots and empire, where a brainplague has been released to decrease mans innovative skills...

There's nothing really new on the horizon, all the games are either direct or "spiritual" successors, the movies are rehashes or nr 11 in the series, and the tv-shows? dear god, running 9 seasons, and then a little spin-off afterwards..

WHere is the innonvation, the ingenuity, the genius to dare and do, to boldly go where no-one has gone before?

I realize I'm speaking generally here, and of course there are some new stuff , although, in all fairness, most of the new stuff, is just rehashes of old stories/games as I see it...

Anyways, have we entered an age of re-runs, where we are incapable of renewing ourselves? Do we fear change so much, that we take the safe bet all the time? or has perhaps economic interestest in demographic surveys taken over, ensuring that we get what 76 percent of the population would find of interest, based on previos experience?

discuss :-)

I'm sorry, but Funcom has to be the worst gaming company I've ever experienced - the whole process of Age of Conan has been just..wrong... they seem to have no idea what to do...
Is there some Uwe boll thing going on?

Okay, bought the game, and tried it..eh....

I have no clue whats going on! no manual, no tutorial, no nothing... Am I supposed to swing and then somehow use another rope to go higher? I cant seem to make a rope, unless I'm on ground/plants... and whats that thing I have to find on the first level? and how is it hidden? And how do I Unhide it?

I'm flabbergasted!!

loved the game, and would like another like it, just like the OP stated... Also, I seem to remember that the tech text was actually always accompanied by some speak, right? With someone who sounded a lot like Morgan Freeman?

awesome!  Although I do have to say that, in part where Dumbledore is fighting the Inferi, he looks alot like Gandalf.

they are cousins, trice removed..

anyways, love the movies, and the books, although, I couldnt get through the 6th one, so, I'm excited about this movie - first one where I DONT know what's going to happen

I find your tenacity appealing, its good to be able to follow the game through your posts, BJ , thansk :-)

That being said.... They basically say, they are working on making the game a full game soon, right?

anyways, I'll probably try this out again in 4-6 months

7788  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: First review of 'The Dark Knight' on: July 30, 2008, 09:42:00 AM
soooo...went to see this movie last night, and...well, it was good, not the incredible, awesome, over-the-top-experience some have stated it to be, but it was good nonetheless :-)

Heath Ledger was a brilliant joker, and (besides the obvious that I lament any persons drug-induced death) a bit sad, that we wont see this again from him... he was just so..different and disturbing, that he carried the movie a lot.

Batman was...well, not the main person in this movie, not even secondary main person, as I saw it, and wasnt that strong as a character either. He actually struck me as a a bit sad this time, the characters eh, character...much more of a "normal vigilante person" than in any of the other movies I've seen with him.

And i really didnt understand half the explosions, or why they were there...for instance,

Spoiler for Hiden:
Batman on his motorcycle after the crashed, blows up a lot of cars...why? and how did he know they werent peopled? and why are there empty cars in an underground tunnel??

Harvey was great as well, although, the ..ahem

Spoiler for Hiden:
Turning him into a bad guy was a liiitle bit too easy in my opinion...just claim "I didnt do it, they are evil, was a bit on the light side

anyways, good summer movie, decent, but not making film history

7792  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [Vanguard] How many actually play/make a guild? on: July 29, 2008, 03:10:50 PM
So, how many actually play this game right now?

As of right now, there isnt a OO/GT guild, but, seeing how many people seems to play, if we could just get 6 people online at the same time, we can make a guild easily

oh, and remember, join the GT channel by typing /join GT and we can find eachother easily in that channel :-)

It seems to be a national thing - in the us, Mamma Mia hasnt done that well, whereas in the UK its the number one box office hit so far...4,5 million pounds so far.

Americans are...generally speaking, hollywood fixated, movie-wise, and mamma mia smells very european I suspect, thus not generating that much interest.

thats my take on it, anyways

Not to mention the fact that ABBA sucks.

thats one opinion, certainly - but the pure cold fact is, that ABBA's music spoke to millions of people, and they were, at their time, one of the top bands ever to make music....

People STILL like their music, enough to make a movie like this succesfull (or semi in the states, if you count a third place semi-succesfull), and enough to have a LOT of people still go see the musical this movie is based upon...
