Tons of care package glitching last night - from the unlimited sprinter to unlimited air drops. Lame lame lame - yet we keep coming back for more  icon_lol
Although we did manage to eek out a win regardless. After which Calvin called the guy out and said that he had sex with his mom - the guy left after the next game probably to see if Calvin really was upstairs laying pipe  ninja

This design allows you to do both. So maybe Whateverburger should call up Heinz.

Really like the new idea - I always struggle with those dams tinfoily packets. Trying to tear just the corner off without it actually tearing down the entire side was always a gamble.

I read the above post like this:

A scriptwriter's session for Spartacus:

writer 1:  And I think we need to introduce Napoleon as his arch nemesis at this juncture!

writer 2:  But Napoleon wasn't even born until...

writer 1:  BOOBIES!

caught up with it lastnight for ep#2.

First thoughts - wholly Beefcake Batman! Talk about sweaty six packs galore. If I was a pole smoker I would be excited to say the least. However I did enjoy the gratuitous boobie / lesbosian shot from time to time to help rid the mind of the sausage festivus.

The show thus far is a mix of Gladiator (revenge dead wife) 300 (cinematics / blood spurts) and Braveheart (trying desperately to hold onto the bit of cloth a la William Wallace) whilst he is being beaten.

Dialogue with the gladiators is laughable at best-  I got tired of them all laughing each time a pleb was beat down/cut down etc etc.

I may give it another go - it helps pass the time before THE PACIFIC!!!

Great question Lettuce - I too have noticed as of late that there are a ton more rooms with lower level accounts out there. Even more now than I would have expected given the age of the title - I mean over Xmas there was bound to be a metric ton of n00bs out there. But now? Seems a little odd even if nothing more than a coincidence.

Finally played the demo yesterday evening and colour me impressed.

Sure this is God of War – but this time it is on the 360. I admit that I enjoyed hacking and slashing and some of the finishing moves etc etc.

I have to say that I was mightly impressed with the visuals – most notably the part when you are in the cathedral and the wall falls away from you – I was REALLY impressed with the detail and animation there. The visuals overall were really quite crisp and seemed to stand out on my TV.
I also enjoyed the part at the end of the demo when you can ride that big ‘Brumak’ looking thing.
I may make this a day one purchase.

Roman, how often would you say you're seeing it? Is it periodic like the old javelin glitch or is it everywhere like dual shotties?

That was my first and only time I have seen it. But I have not played since Sunday.


EDIT - I will say however that the matchmaking and lobby was horrible. Hung lobbies were the flavour of the night. Closed lobbies ... etc etc.

agreed %110 on dropped lobbies and terrible matchmaking. Add CSL to the mix and well that just means that we never ever got connected to a good lobby.

Question on walkthroughs for Demon’s Souls.
I have never used a walkthrough guide for any game that I have played but am using one for DS. I chose to refer to a WT because of the sheer complexity and volume of content in this title.

I am wondering if I am cheating myself in terms of a gaming experience here? I mean without it I would have never known how to get the ‘Thief’s Ring’
Spoiler for Hiden:
“jump off stairs onto ledge and jump down to platform where Ostravia is waiting….”
But that would mean that I would have missed out on a significant find that would only serve to help me later in the game.
I like to explore and note that there are some areas that the WT make no mention of (at least in my current location) and wonder if I am missing out – or are they simply trying to save me from dying too early. And yes I am looking at you
Spoiler for Hiden:
Red Eyed Knight
in 1-2?
Thoughts?

total idiot here Roll Eyes
Thanks - I went to the slot for my rings (fingers) and equiped from there. Now comes the decision to start over again based on the fact that I lost 2600 souls already.
1138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Demon's Souls PS3 US version on: January 19, 2010, 02:54:50 PM
i highlight the item in my inventory and press 'X'. The options are typically:
equip
drop
re-org

Equip is always greyed out?
1139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Demon's Souls PS3 US version on: January 19, 2010, 01:23:57 PM
why can't my priest equip anything that I have picked up? Rings / swords etc etc. Is it because I am in soul form? I am on 1-2 now.
Is it perhaps based on class - meaning that my priest cannot wear the thief's ring?

If so I may have to start over and play another character who can actually use the items I find.

Calvin  - what gives? We were just talking about many of these games last night during the breaks in MW2. Are you abandoning all games?
1142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Modern Warfare 2 Impressions [And official GT Review] on: January 14, 2010, 08:45:44 PM
I just realized why I initially posted this thread - I did not have an issue with the danger close perk. Heck  - anyone who every plays with me knows that I love me some dangerclose with my Javelin....... ninja

What I wanted to stress was that the One Man Army perk allowed the refill of ammo. I thought it was only to allow you to switch loadouts during the game. BUT when you selected a previous loadout that was already devoid of ammo that it would remain there.

There I said it.

Thanks,

Not sure if this is new at all - but I came across the following video on a 'one man army' IMBALANCE via Blue's.

http://beforeitsnews.com/story/11848/Modern_Warfare_2_God_Mode_Video.html

I hope to god that I never encounter this. I am not normally a complainer (probably because I am not good enough) but I will most definitely rage quit should the happen to me on any given map.

 The X31s are very good and probably provide as much as most people require, and seem to be much louder than the 41s.  The 41s, however, are slightly more comfortable, and can also be used for TV.  [/quote]

I can also use my X31s for TV / DVD - I use the audio out ports on my TV. thumbsup

I thought that the HDMI cable provided both video and audio - and if so I assumed surround audio?
I've heard mixed info on whether the 360 pumps 5.1 out of the HDMI.  I know my TV doesn't output any kind of surround sound just stereo. I don't have any other kind of HDMI receiver in the house to test my 360.

You'd know if you have surround sound in your headphones or not, I suppose. smile

the X31s do not have the surround sound option- that is only on the x41s - they have 7.1 or something crazy like that.

Nonna - Apart from the faulty chat cable - I am securing it to the headset with an elastic band  Roll Eyes - and they are sending me a new cable in late Jan. They confirmed via email to me that they got a bad batch of cables that do not sit properly in the female connectors.

But having said that - I really really like them. I can hear all sorts of stuff that my TV or surround setup was not able to reproduce. Favela for instance has tons of chatter in the background from cars honking to dogs barking and kids playing - pretty neat. Add to that the ability to play late into the night without bothering anyone and it is a great product.

I also have a wireless setup - in fact my Xbox is also using the wireless adapter - I have zero issues. I have the receiver set to the other side of the fireplace mantle just in case. My wireless router is about 10 feet away and one floor below in the basement - essentially right below the fireplace.

I will say that when I use my headset with the wireless wheel that you just got I have some 'hiss' feedback - not a deal breaker by any means.

+1 on the battery sucking component - there is no way that the batteries last for up to 20hrs of gaming. I may get 8-10hrs if that so I always have an extra set of AAAs charging.

Just like your decision with the wheel you will not be disapointed. Easy setup and very comfy on the melon too.

There are also a ton of threads out there (including a few posts above) that talk about the HDMI cable setup also requiring you to use the AV cable for the audio pass through AND also hacking the cable plug as it blocks the HDMI port. TOTAL BS - I have my Xbox connected via HDMI to the TV and use the 'audio out' jacks on the TV to connect the audio pass through cables to. Assuming of course that your TV has audio out smile

So, I blew out my engine for the first time tonight, on Maple Valley full circuit in my Focus. I'm not entirely sure, but I think what happened was that near the beginning, when you go over some short bumps, my car was nailing the red while it was in the air.

So my question is, does the amount of redline you get change when you changed the gear ratios, or is it set by car and you just have to know to shift up earlier so you don't screw your car in those bumps?

Admittedly I am still pretty new to the game - but yesterday Hark, Kato and I were racing on an oval with the Mercedes 300sl? (the old gull wing model) and we ran 6 laps in the red. And I mean constant red - 7000rpm and no one blew an engine.

Weird.

So I picked the X31s up last night and already have problems.....

No one can hear me chat. They can all hear their own voices being echoed. (Sorry Hark / Otter for last night)

So I contact Turtle Beach today and they are sending out a new chat cable the 1st week in Jan. Great turnaround.
And of course I look at the support forums adn they are rife with complaints.  mad

Game sounds are great though - I can hear more that my TV is able to produce.

Hate to say it but my 8yr old (oXG5) will always be ahead of me (RomyBolognaPony). He's already onto his 1st prestige while I am slowly climbing Everest in order to get the AK47.... finger

He had a great time playing with you guys - thanks for letting him. I gush about you guys like a love struck 8yr old so I can understand his enthusiasm. He now has a little admiration crush on Hark because ‘ wow dad! He is really good!’  eek

I guess I can always ground him from playing so that I can catch up....... muwhahahahahaha.

So I caved after our talk during MW2 on Tuesday night and picked up the wireless wheel and Forza 3 for Christmas. I sold her on the fact that we could use this to get our son off the MW2 bandwagon smile
I also threw in a little "hey hon you might actually play this too......"  paranoid

Gonna be a great Christmas this year. So far I have managed to snag:

PS3 slim
Killzone 2
Uncharted 1
Resistance 1
Super Mario Wii
Forza 3 w/ wheel
Demon's Souls

Like I said, I don't know how this is happening, but word on the street is that it's an exploit - created by modders - that can be "passed" around anyone and everyone who plays against them, as it sticks in their 360's cache. Only, instead of corrupting data, it blows up MW2 maps.

To get rid of the glitch, you'll have to disconnect from Live and reboot your 360.

Grrrreat - if this is to be believed / vetted in any way does this mean that a future exploitation including viri and their ilk can move to our home networks etc etc if we are using the media extender option? Not trying to be a fear monger by any means - but even to read/suggest that this is a 'possibility' is very dis-heartening.  crybaby

Another positive vote for the Dyson. We picked up the canister DC23 about a year ago and have not looked back. We have 2 cats and a dog on all hardwood with one area rug. Love love love the thing.
House feels cleaner and I am amazed everytime we use the thing just how much dirt it grabs.

Expensive? Sure - but it is more than the bang for your buck.

Take the plunge and rest easy that there are no belts/bags to replace.
