Starshifter, I'm glad Cinemagic made the cut, you actually have me interested in the channel.

Appears most of the channels are Sirius channels. Hair Nation in, Boneyard out. Lithium in, Lucy out, etc. We XM users will be getting a Punk/Ska channel back. Lost my XCountry but am interested in Outlaw Country and how it compares.

I'm not a huge country fan but I do listen to Outlaw Country quite a bit. They have some good DJs like Hillbilly Jim (yes the wrestler) and some Imus guy with a chick who whistles when she talks (think John McCain whistle times 10). They also have a show with Johny Knoxville on Saturdays sometimes. If you like Jerry Reid, Willy Nelson, Hank Williams Jr., etc.. then you should like Outlaw Country.

I had the play session with Turbine last night. I'm going to be writing a preview for you guys today. If there is anything you would like me to address let me know. I can confirm that the Donkeys do cost money. You also have to gain Reputation within Moria in order to buy one. Once you buy one you can use them anywhere, not just in Moria.

Hey guys I thought I would let you  know that Yellowking and I are going to be playing Mines of Moria with the game's developers tonight. Is there anything you guys want us to ask while we are playing? I think what they are going to do is give us pre-rolled high lvl toons and take us on a tour of all the new content. I would be happy to ask any questions that you guys have. It starts in a couple of hours so there's not a lot of time to think about it.

Your party has shown what it's good for, a national disaster. As McCain said last night, America has spoken, and it has spoken clearly.


Yep yep. It's already begun. He's already blame proof because GWB set the table. If that's how it works, I guess 9/11 WAS Clinton's fault.

Err... You need to update yourself on the history of the Middle East conflict. The situation was birthed long before Clinton became President.

I wish you were right, but it's McCain who's going to take this election. Un-fucking-believable how many ignorant people we have down here in Florida and Georgia who wouldn't even consider voting for Obama. (Hell, I've offended people just by telling them I'm voting for him!) McCain will take Georgia, no doubt about it.. probably Florida too, though it's still up in the air. In the end though lets not hold our breath for change because we're in for 4 more years of the same!  icon_evil

I really wouldn't consider Georgia politics as a reflection of the general voting population. Has a Democrat ever won the state of Georgia?

OH YES, I'm all for the dog armor, so long as it doesn't impact gameplay in anyway and stays strictly cosmetic. It should also cost money. At least $5.  icon_twisted

Sony released patch 1.20 yesterday. The patch didn't list what was fixed, but I was able to play the game for 3 solid hours in a 16x16 room without crashing once. That would have never happened pre patch.

After reading through some of those suggestion threads I was able to improve my play a little bit. You can still get killed unexpectedly but that is the nature of the game.

Son of Godzilla
Beast from 20,000 Fathom's
Day of the Triffids
Godzilla vs. Mothra

 headbang

Right now though I'm sitting on pins and needles.  Cinemagic's survival is up in the air as dickhead Mel Karmazin, the new CEO dick of Sirius/XM is basically gutting XM to pieces.  If I ever met this guy in person I would sock him right in the mouth.  Over 80 XM employee's have already been canned.  The new combined channel list is supposed to be out the weekend of November 14th-16th.  I really don't know what is going to happen to Cinemagic.  If it goes, I'm cancelling.  Why?  Well, Cinemagic is all I listen to.  It's worth it.  You will not find something this unique on radio anywhere.

With the merger we were all lied to.  This was not a merger.  It was a take over and dismantling of XM  It was supposed to be a combining of like channels from each service and keeping what is unique.  What a mess.



Holy cow Starshifter you really love your cinemagic. Personally I think you are jumping the gun on the Mel Karmazin hate, wait until the new channel lineup is announced. I have a feeling Cinemagic will stay, what they intend to cut are the channels that are duplicates. No sense in having two all 60's channels.

So with the Wrath of the Lich King coming on November 14th, is anyone else planning on coming back to WoW. I recently resubbed and I am playing a Blood Elf on Whisperwind. He's only lvl 19 now but I'm enjoying the game. It would be cool to see some more Gters on (other than the ones in the Wanderers).

Are we talking "next few days or weeks" soon or "in time for me to pick up the game at lunch" soon? slywink

Heh, in the "I'll receive my PC copy today and my PS3 version is still in the plastic" sort of soon.  It's going to take me a few days...



Great review!  slightly OT, but where's the Fable 2 review? it's not like you've been busy or had anything else going on Tongue

Why are you guys clamoring for the Fallout and Fable reviews when we have the Red Bull Game review live. I mean that game should be all you want to play this holiday season.  nod

And Hellgate is finally done:

Quote
Namco Bandai, the North American publisher for the now-defunct Flagship Studios' Hellgate: London (PC), has announced that it will support the game's servers through January 31, 2009, after which they will be shut down.

For players of the action MMO, which Blizzard alum and Flagship founder Bill Roper admitted was "not great," Namco Bandai will continue to run those servers for free as a "further gesture of support."

Namco Bandai saved the game's servers back in July as the failure of the once-anticipated Hellgate predicated the collapse of Flagship. Much of the studio's staff has gone on to form Runic Games in order to continue making action RPGs.

I wonder how much the 'lifetime sub' is going for now...  icon_twisted

We should start a chat tonight before we get into the game. I plan to play tonight, It will probably be around 9:30ish. As far as accepting the clan invite, IM not sure how you do that. Fumble accepted it, so he could provide incite on that. I think tonight we should start our own server maybe a 4x4 server so we could all be on the same team and then have other people join against us. That may be cool.

I'm with you on the game though Lettuce. It has so much potential but the bugs and piss poor server selection design are HUGE minuses.

It isn't exactly full price. You can get just the game for $39.99 or the game and the new headset for $59.99. The game doesn't compare to CoD4, it is more realistic and tactical like R6. There are one shot kills and most servers do not allow a respawn. Thus you have to be really careful. The game is deep, but in a different way than CoD4. Good teams will be able to stick together form a strategy and move through a map systematically.

Well I mostly played hardcore mode in COD 4 which is pretty much 1 shot kill/respawn off.  I also like the cover mechanic in Vegas and I doubt that SOCOM has anything like that.  When you say deep, is it ArmA/Red Orchestra deep or GRAW deep?

It's more like GRAW. The deepness comes from weapon selection, armor selection, scope selection, etc. It also really comes in when you have a good team that works together using the headsets and the team is coordinated. If you run and gun you will die. THus you have to proceed with caution and have a plan.

Just curious, what does this game offer over games like Vegas, COD 4 etc?  I like tactical shooters but I'm not impressed by the reviews so far.  They are asking full price for a MP only game that doesn't even have as deep MP as those other games which also come with full fledged single player campaigns?

It isn't exactly full price. You can get just the game for $39.99 or the game and the new headset for $59.99. The game doesn't compare to CoD4, it is more realistic and tactical like R6.

Gothic 1 and 2 sucked me in harder than any other RPG game. With that said, you mentioned earlier that you couldn't get into the Witcher because of the weird combat, so unless you are willing to adjust to a new combat control style you may want to steer clear of Gothic. I think anyone who isn't willing to get used to the Gothic controls is missing out though.
