1  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Test Server questions on: July 06, 2005, 08:26:00 PM
I hope you don't mean Siphon Life.  Life Tap isn't a DOT and has always been an instant.  I don't use Life Tap, but Siphon Life is one of my mainstays.  That better not get nerfed.

At lvl 35, my warlock only had to pay 1g for the respec, so I 'm very glad I did it.  The timing was perfect, because soon after, I picked up my first spell-from-talent, Siphon Life (rank 2).  Had I waited, my cost to respec at lvl 38 would have been almost double.

The best advice of course is to not screw up your talents in the first place!  If you do, fix it early!

Devil, are you Ok?  Don't tell me you're not IN on this one.   :shock:

This is the third PSP game from my pre-order that I couldn't initially decide on.  Based on what I've been reading, I thnk I'm going to be glad I waited.  I just need to go pick it up now!

Be careful though, you should know that if you have bought any additional ranks of powers/spells learned from talents, you will lose those too and will have to pay to learn those again.

Ok, thank you!  This makes perfect sense.  Someone was trying to explain this to me in-game and I wasn't really understanding.

It sounds like the effort is definitely worth it, at least for my case.
6  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Talent Respec'ing on: May 05, 2005, 09:36:43 PM
I would like to respec my 35 warlock so I can gain back the 2 or 3 points I wasted in the Affliction tree.  I am heavy Affliction now and plan to stay that way, but I want to also go Destruction to round me out to 60...getting back these points would really help.

My question...How much will this cost me?  I only plan on doing this once, and I understand that it will cost 1g to unlearn what I have now.   Do I then have to pay to re-allocate?

Is this still going on?  I had thought that this was a week long event.  The quest(s) start in Stormwind for the Alliance, right?
8  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW patch today on: April 22, 2005, 07:46:36 PM
I originally just wanted to know whether the latest patch changed something major that my 31 warlock needed to be aware of, but MY GOD... how do some of you manage to have any fun with this game?

I LOVE my warlock.  She's the most unique character I've played in any RPG.  So many different strategies.  She can simply rule in a given PvE situation one minute, and then be the cause of getting every freindly ally dead the next.   :lol:   Never boing.

I have just about as much fun with my 22 Druid and 26 Rouge.  WoW is just that much fun.

Live Patch Notes Disclaimer: While we make every effort to include all upcoming changes in our patch notes, please be aware that occasionally some changes are unintentionally omitted.

Tee hee.

Actually not a bad patch, as far as I can tell.  Warlocks continue to suck ass, and I guess Hunters are still reeling from their DPS loss, but otherwise it looks good.

Enlighten me on how Warlocks continue to suck ass, please.  Do you mean in PVP?
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky [PSP] on: April 04, 2005, 05:59:59 PM
I'm finding scoring difficult too.  Like the PS2 version, it may just take time to get used to.  I stopped playing the PS2 version a while ago, so it's almost like starting over.

Of course, I'd be playing with my PSP a lot more if it wasn't for my WoW addiction.   :o
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky [PSP] on: April 01, 2005, 03:43:15 PM
Gretzky is a great game, but out of the box I found it almost unplayable due to the choppy frame rate.  I highly suggest lowering the game speed all the way down and switching to the traditional camera.  A huge improvement.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky [PSP] on: March 31, 2005, 07:56:06 PM
You guys have any luck with Gretzky online?  I'd like to try it out.
13  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Hottest MMO Females on: March 25, 2005, 04:53:53 PM
I think the Gnome females of WoW are just the cutest!  Wish I had some pics, cuz they are just adorable.   Tongue
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky [PSP] on: March 16, 2005, 05:05:01 PM
Oh, I have one pre-ordered!

So...the game speed is the same and can't be slowed any more?
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky [PSP] on: March 16, 2005, 04:27:59 PM

Is it different from the PS2 version?  Details please.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL2K5 Playoffs - (FINAL UPDATE: 5/2) on: February 17, 2005, 11:02:35 PM
Since there's no NHL video game certainty for next season (EA doesn't count), I'd say put your ESPN season on hold.  If you burn out now, then you could be facing a crisis come fall when you realize there are no new decent hockey games coming out.

It's too late for me with ESPN.  I'm bored to tears with it, and I don't think it has anythng to do with the real life NHL situation (which has me just plain pissed).

Of course, there is Gretzky hockey for the PSP to look forward to.

Great news, Devil!  Congrats!

Here are some suggestions for slider settings.  Rather than post them all, I'll include some of the more important ones.  

These are geared toward a more simulation style of play, without being hard core.  I like a little slower game speed and more realistic hitting.  Goalies are less of a brick wall, so playing good defense becomes more important.

Skill: Pro
Game Speed: 4
Fighting: 1
Speed burst after fight win: Off
Puck Friction: 7  
Ice Friction: 1
Goalie Freeze Puck Time: 2

Game Clock: Accelerated
Last Minute Real Time: On  ;highly recommended
Custom Penalty Length: On    
Pen Length: 2:00/1:00 ;good for short games

Penalties; these are lowered due to the AI's tendencies to over commit.
Slashing: 4
Spearing: 5

Goalie: 7
Offense: 8
Defense: 10
Speed Burst Effect: 7
Speed Burst Time: 3
Speed Burst Recovery: 2
Fatigue Effect: 8
Fatigue Recovery: 1
Fatigue Time: Maxed
Hitting Power: 2
Shot Accuracy: 7

; Retention and control low create more loose puck situations and players cannot magically strip the puck as easy
Puck Retention: 2  
Puck Control: 2

; These make the goalie a little less super-human.  Garbage goals and writs shots are a little more effective.
Goalie Anticipation: 6
Goalie Cover Depth: 11
Goalie Saves: Maxed

Great series Mike.  Took us an hour and a half to finish.  Hard fought games, for sure.

Thanks a lot guys for the Tourney.   Look forward to getting a season going.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney on: December 19, 2004, 09:23:16 PM
8 it is, Mike
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney on: December 19, 2004, 08:57:48 PM
How about early this evening for our game, Mike?  Does 7 EST work for you?  If not pick a time, I'm flexible today.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 Season confirmations! on: December 17, 2004, 04:40:26 PM
Devil - Great news on the upcoming little Devil!  You guys are going to have one hell of a family. :twisted:

So about this season thing.  I'd like to sugguest some sliders, which I can post later.  The default is not bad, but the goalies need a little tweaking and puck retention/control needs to be lowered.

Fatigue is a bit out of wack and will need to be adjusted if anyone is going to use auto or semi-auto line changes.

And Speed Burst after Fight Win?  Turn it OFF!!

I'll post some sliders this evening and we can discuss.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney on: December 17, 2004, 04:12:30 PM
Mike, congrats on you making it to the finals!  And a special thanks to those cheering for me and my 'Yotes.  I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you....losing.   :wink:

So Mike, I'm pretty flexible with my evenings.   Tonight or Sunday maybe.  Pick a time.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney on: December 15, 2004, 03:09:51 PM
Great games, TML!  

Who's on deck next?
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Impressions on: December 14, 2004, 08:30:01 PM
It may be too soon for hockey fans to panic, but what happened to Gretzky?

It was listed as a launch title, but now it's not even showing up as a PSP release.

Man, I was looking forward to WiFi hockey.   frown

Hey TML,

How about tonight at 9 EST for our game?

Deal!  Seeya then!


You're putting Abid in, right?  Hated to see him go from Phoenix.

Good games, Devil!  And thanks for the info on the x20.  It's sweet looking.

Highlight had to be Morris's goal.  Puck goes off the goalie's blocker, hits him in the head, goes straight up, comes down on his head, trickles down his back, and....IN!

LD, are you running your xbox through a router?  If so, make sure you have UDP port 3074 wide open.

I was getting sync and disconnect problems all the time, and making this change in my router fixed all my problems.

Also, make sure you don't have custom arena music enabled.  This has been known to cause online problems as well.
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney on: December 12, 2004, 08:31:43 PM
Technically, I'm on Arizona time, which is essentially Mountain Standard.  We don't by into that whole daylight savings thing since we get enough sun as it is, so this time of the year we're only 2 hours away from you East Coasters, as opposed to in the summer, when we're on Pacific time and 3 hours away.        :wink:

10 EST it is.
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney on: December 12, 2004, 09:36:37 AM
Devil - How about Monday?  7-10 Mountain time works best for me.

Rob, you have ESPN NHL 2k5 for XBox this year?  We're starting signups for a tourney tonight; get in gear!

Sure, ask me now that I've become accustomed to Gretzky controls.   :wink:
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney on: December 10, 2004, 06:05:36 PM
I'd love to join in on the fun, but I might have 'issues'.

This version of ESPN has always given me sync problems when trying to start an online game.  It usually takes three or four tries.  Awhile back, there was flurry of posts regarding some problem that had to do with XBOX HD modes being enabled.  Apparently this was the cause of some people's sync problems.

I need to check some other things, like my router configuration.  I did recently enable MAC filtering, but other games work fine, so I don't know...

I'll sign up tonight and we'll see how things go.
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky NHL '05 on: December 06, 2004, 09:09:29 PM
Is it worth buying a PS2 modem to play online?  If it's just 1-on-1, I'll pass, but if multiple PS2's can connect for a single game, count me in.
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [xbox] Tiger Woods 2005 question on: December 01, 2004, 04:52:20 PM
If your lie slopes to the left, you really have to hit right to compensate; the reverse is true.  

You can tell how deep you are in the rough by looking at the ball in the lower right.  Look at the percentage.  It pretty much tells you how much contact you can expect to get with a full swing.

The golfer customizations are awesome.  I enjoy that aspect more than the actual golf.   :wink:
37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Got a question about non-official XBOX HD cables on: November 29, 2004, 05:53:27 PM
What's wrong with the standard Microsoft HD cable?  It has the optical out that you need for 5.1.

I don't see an optical out on that Ebay cable.
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky NHL '05 on: November 18, 2004, 04:25:59 PM
My biggest problem with the game is learning to deal with the shoot button being in the wrong place!  And you can't change it.   :x

Some other things I've noticed are troubling.  Example:  Frolov goes in clean on a breakaway (I'm playing D and obviously lost), he makes a beautiful deke and scores...but the goal gets waived off because his skate entered the crease.   :shock:   That is so wrong.

I'm also not sure that the AI can put up a decent challenge.  I'm playing on Pro and have seen a couple instances where the CPU will pinch both D-men, making it all too easy to break in clean from center ice.  Maybe bumping up the difficulty will fix this.
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Microsoft to release three versions of Xbox 2 on: November 11, 2004, 04:36:54 PM
So will Next PC support backward compatibility or just the emulator software needed for backward compatibility?   :roll:
40  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gretzky NHL '05 on: November 05, 2004, 09:58:37 PM
No, unfortunately online play only supports two xbox's.  Cryin' shame it is.
