I really hope some of you aren't judging the game based off of early build videos, that would be so wrong...   icon_mad
4602  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Do I tell her? on: June 22, 2007, 09:07:19 PM
So my girlfriend just finished with her hair appointment, she wanted to try having bangs and personally I wasn't excited about the idea because honestly I'm just not a huge fan of them. Anyhow, she just sent me a pic message to my phone and I think the haircut looks pretty bad... *looking at the picture again* ...  Yeah it's really bad, so do I give her an honest opinion or do I lie?
4603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Mass Effect -- WHEN?!?!?!?!?! on: June 22, 2007, 08:32:27 PM
The more I read about this game, the more worried I become about the game being spread too thin. Lots of worlds to explore, tons of people to meet, but none of it being all that exciting because perhaps there is simply too much content. Anyone else concerned about this?
4604  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: DiRT [360/PS3/PC] Impressions on: June 22, 2007, 08:26:27 PM
I put an hour or so into the game so far and I'm not having much fun with it. I've never been the biggest racing game fan in the world, the last rally racing game I played was on the Xbox over two years ago. I'm just not seeing how this game is any different from any previous rally games, and on top of that I'm not feeling a great sense of speed. When I read a preview for this game I got really excited, the developers made it seem like there was a slew of new features that were going to bring rally racing to the next level and whatnot. I see the damage model and I like it, but other than that I'm just not grasping what makes this game actually fun.
4605  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Overlords on: June 22, 2007, 06:26:32 PM
Playing the demo was underwhelming for me, I'm thinking I'll end up passing on this game since my hands will be full with Dirt, The Darkness, and Harry Potter (360). That will of course change depending on how the impressions look.
4606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 1up reviews The Darkness on: June 22, 2007, 06:23:47 PM
I didn't like Chronicles of Riddick when I played it on the PC when it came out, I thought the stealth gameplay was poorly implemented and I felt as though I could never determine whether stealth or non-stealth was the best choice in many situations. However, I definately admired the production values and the atmosphere of the game. I'll definately be giving The Darkness a spin.

I like the other people in the vent server and their comments because they are all level-headed about it. Did you also hear one of them refer to that chick as someone's mother?

The sad thing is that this makes me want to play WoW again, had a lot of fun times on vent.

4610  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly question on: June 21, 2007, 05:36:22 AM
Hmm, I really don't understand how GF works. I put Dirt at #2 in my Q and Super Paper Mario at #1, and just today they shipped Dirt. That's fine with me, I didn't expect to get Dirt shipped to me so quickly though considering it just came out, I figured they would just Mario first. *shrug* Guess you just have to roll with it.
4611  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C 3 Impressions on: June 20, 2007, 05:47:17 PM
I think the problem is the GDI campaign is way too damn long, by the time I finished it I needed a few days before starting the Nod campaign, and by the time I started Nod I was even burnt out on the cutscenes. I think I'll play some multiplayer rounds and call it a day with this game.
4612  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly question on: June 20, 2007, 05:39:44 PM
Heck, I live in California, I should find out where the distribution center is and drive there myself if it will speed things up. Here's hoping I get a copy of Dirt soon. Do you think it matters how long you've had a game on your Q? I've had Dirt on there for two weeks now.
4613  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly question on: June 20, 2007, 04:20:44 AM
GF is really sucking lately. I put my game in the mail last Friday and they still (it's now Tuesday evening) have not acknowledged that I've even mailed the game yet. Lameness.
4614  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Manhunt 2 banned in UK on: June 20, 2007, 04:12:07 AM
Whoa... the game actually has an AO (Adult Only) rating in the U.S, that's going to severly limit its availability here as well.
4615  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C 3 Impressions on: June 20, 2007, 04:07:45 AM
Yeah, I didn't have any more patience with that mission. You should definately try the tiberium bomb though, you get a different cutscene at the end.
4616  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/18) on: June 20, 2007, 04:05:24 AM
Dirt for sure.

Bah, as much as I like the system, I'd say you should wait until after E3.  It's likely Sony will announce the PSP slim at the E3 event, which will probably mean another price drop for the PSP1.  Or if not a price drop, at least you'll know for sure if they have any bigger plans for the PSP, as well as upcoming games for 2008.  Then with all that info you can decide whether to get one now.

Are they really planning on calling it the PSP Slim? I mean it's already thin...
4618  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Has MS Finally Changed 360 Cooling? on: June 20, 2007, 12:20:39 AM
Two questions:

1) If you do claim to have system issues like lockups or whatever, and they thoroughly test your system and find nothing is wrong, isn't it possible they would just attempt to clean it out a bit and send it back?

2) Isn't it possible that they would just send you an old model as a replacement?
4619  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C 3 Impressions on: June 20, 2007, 12:11:36 AM
Ah right, Scoop you reminded me of something I forgot to ask. Did anyone else use the tiberium bomb for the last mission? I sure as hell did and it was totally worth losing 25+ million lives  icon_cool

If you didn't though, how in the world did you complete the mission? I thought about it and figured perhaps getting the ion cannon online as early as possible is the best way to complete the mission without using the tiberium bomb, because all you really need to do is destroy the two structures.

Do you have to patch in order, or can you just slap on the 1.05 patch?

Anyone play after this patch and have any comments?

If you update through the game it will update your version automatically, this is probably the safest way. It's also pretty quick.
4621  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox 360 rpgs on: June 19, 2007, 07:25:23 AM
One thing I am tiring of in JRPGs is that the characters look exactly the same throughout the game, they really need to go through a cosmetic upgrade as you progress in levels.

Actually, these days games are likely to cost a lot more than that, up to 75 mil, maybe hundreds? eek

I wonder how much Oblivion cost, that game is about the right scale and complexity.

No games have reached the hundreds of millions to produce yet have they? That would really be outrageous...
4623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C 3 Impressions on: June 19, 2007, 07:22:31 AM
I just finished the GDI campaign, I enjoyed most of it but really hated the last few missions. The campaign seems to drag on forever, by the time the Scrin missions were introduced I was bored of GDI and wishing I was on the Nod campaign. The last mission really sucked, I just hated it the whole way through. It probably took me 3-4 hours altogether, if not more, restarting it perhaps a dozen times. It wasn't simply that the mission was hard, but it was frustrating and in my opinion poorly designed. I'll probably wait a few days to refresh my interest in the game before moving onto the Nod campaign, that last GDI mission really burned me out.

I have no clue what pan and scan even is, so I'm going to assume Blu-ray has a bit more going for it.
4626  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Sony] Blockbuster chooses Blu-ray on: June 18, 2007, 11:11:51 PM
Big news for Sony:

Leading rental chain Blockbuster has taken sides in the format war. According to the AP, although Blockbuster has been renting both HD DVD and Blu-ray movies in 250 stores, starting next month the company has decided to offer Blu-ray in 1,450 stores.

This is huge news for Sony, obviously. At this point, being someone who does not own either an HD-DVD or Blu-ray set of any sort, I would definately go with Blu-ray. I'm happy for Sony, it's a big win for them and hopefully will be a driving force in consumers supporting the PS3. Hopefully Sony can pick up the slack in the gaming department and turn things around.

I was successful in steering my friends away from seeing this one over the weekend, it was getting bad reviews everywhere and after the black holes that were Spiderman 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean 3, I couldn't stomach another mediocre fantasy movie sequel.

Team Fortress has always been a cartoon game.  Otherwise, it'd just be another generic military shooter.

I think you are referring to the gameplay, while he was referring to the graphics?

16 months after the first episode...they should have just called them expansion packs and be done with it. 

Yeah, it's been way too long between episodes. I thought they were supposed to release every 6 months. Is this episode supposed to be much longer than the first?
4633  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Sopranos on: June 16, 2007, 07:57:44 PM
"Look. The fact that all Soprano fans are debating the significance of the ending means that they don't consider  the 10 seconds of black a REAL ENDING either, so they're manufacturing their own ending to get a sense of closure. And David Chase's response of "oh, the clues are all there" is him just being an asshole. If he really wanted to end the story, he would have. Otherwise, he would have explained what actually happened so people didn't misinterpret his vision."

That's dumb though, whether you consider it a REAL ENDING or a FAKE ENDING it's the freaking ending. I don't understand why everyone needs so much closure, I mean what if that night at a diner was just another night for Tony, and life simply goes on at that point? Does it have to end with Tony being killed or going to jail?
4634  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GTA download episodes exclusive to 360!! on: June 16, 2007, 07:38:38 PM
I don't understand the concerns of the 360 version not having as much content as the PS3 version because of blu-ray, has Rockstar said they can't fit enough onto the 360 discs?

According to the article there's a flashback about a conversation about what happens when one dies. Sounds like that's what happened at the end.  Sounds like a match.

Eh, if it was that clear-cut people wouldn't still be debating over it. I have to be honest, I may be biased in this arguement because I really don't want to believe Tony was killed... not at that moment at least. It's not the idea of Tony being whacked that troubles me, it's the idea that he was whacked right in front of his family. I mean honestly, out of all the murders and people whacked we've seen on this show, that would have been the most brutal and tragic one. I know Phil Leotardo was killed in front of his wife, but he didn't have older children like A.J and Meadow present. That is the thought that bothers me the most. 
4637  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Half Life 2: Episode 2... Oct 9th on: June 16, 2007, 05:16:41 AM

Why is it that everytime someone mentions anything WoW I get an itch to play it?  It's probably a good thing that no one I know who is local plays the CCG or else I'd be in trouble.

The addiction is still there! I've quit WoW 2-3 times now but always end up coming back, this time though I'm selling my account. That way, if I have an itch to play, I know it would take way more effort than it's worth to scratch it.

Tony's Dead at the end of the show.

I don't watch the show but the article sounds convincing given what it relates...

Those theories have been going around since the moment the last episode ended, it still doesn't confirm anything. The way I see it, if it was meant to be the definitive answer to our questions, David Chase would have been saying "no shit, of course that meant he was killed!" in the interview. But he didn't, meaning there are other possibilities.
