I tend to power mines up only when i use it and mainly that's for surfing the net and checking emails.  I've left my PC on alll weelend once with no issues.  Maybe I'm just the cautious type and see no reason to leave it on when not in use

Where exactly did I say something negative in this post?

Yeah, I don't consider the phone the 'Jesus phone' (as some people jokingly call it), but I do hope the iPhone causes one thing - a substantial upgrade in phone features across the board (as the US has been...lacking when it comes to some things for many years now).


I agree with this.  US phone are way behind the tech curve when it comes to mobile phones.  Japan and Europe enjoy phones and features that US makers haven't even introduced to us yet

Actually, I don't care. I won't buy either albums to be honest.  All the stuff I've heard from 50 sound the same and none of Kanye's material has grabbed me which is weird cause I like Kanye's style more than 50

Final Fantasy VII  The death of Aeris  bothered me to no end in this game.  I remember replaying that scene several times just attempting to save her on time.  Never even realized  til later that there was no way to save her.  Yeah, Probably the best game ever for me 
4126  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Best Game Ever Thread on: September 10, 2007, 08:31:28 PM
hmmm, best game ever.  That's a tough one...maybe BG2, but I have to think on it.   I've tried to replay BG2 and I never get really far, but the desire is there constantly moreso than any other game....

Crud I am forgetting my man love for FFVII.   That was the only game I ever was emotional about...so many choices

Still on the fence or I would be ebaying.  Just want to see if anyone in our community is interested.  Paypal only

You're missing out; there isn't all that much jumping.

Might pick up Half-Life 2 on steam.

Confession time


I never played Half-Life and Half-Life 2 episode 1.  It's finally out there.   I tried the original Half Life and stopped at the first jumping sequence.  Jumping sequences  in a FPS just don't go together.  When Half-Life 2 was released I just wasn't enamored with Half Life and saw no reason to buy Half-Life 2


So I'll will be waiting for UT3 for my first person matching

I just wasn't anticipating a $200 drop after what, like 35 days since it's launched?  That's why I'm a little peeved.  But whatevs.  If that gets people to buy the iPhone and realize just how f'n SWEET it is, then so be it.

Just spoke to the guy at ATT store near me.  Just confirmed that the 4gb is 299 til they run out.  If they have  them tomorrow I will pcik one up.  Holds enough music for my train ride and my gives me other stuff to boot

Well, this is a first - I'm bumping my own 'what are you buying' thread. Why?

Because of this:

Quote
Content: Streets of Rage 2
Price: 400 Microsoft Points
Availability: All Xbox LIVE regions

Dash Text: [ESRB: E (EVERYONE) Fantasy Violence] Single Player, Live Multiplayer 1-2, Local Multiplayer 1-2, HD (High Definition). To commemorate their defeat of the Syndicate exactly one year before, Blaze, Adam and Axel went out to celebrate. The next morning, however, Axel received a frantic phone call from Adam's younger brother, Eddie 'Skate' Hunter. Blaze and Axel rushed over and found Adam and Skate's house wrecked and a picture of Adam chained to a wall at the feet of Mr. X. The city was returned to its nightmarish state and criminals were once again running rampant. Unable to contact their old friend in artillery, Axel and Blaze team up with Skate and Max Thunder to free the city and rescue Adam from the Syndicate. It is up to you to take down Mr. X once and for all!.

Go buy one of the best 2D fighters EVER made. Now.


I have some very fond memories of playing Streets of Rage on my sega genesis with my bestfriend til the wee hours of the morning

The upgraded shotgun and machine gun definitely rip it up. I can stun lock a Big Daddy now.

Speaking of "mad" dialogue:

I had no problem putting him down after all the hoops he made me jump through.


Yep, I dropped him as well.

Quote from: PeteRock on August 24, 2007, 05:06:37 PM

I have downloaded well over $150 worth of Live Arcade games onto my hard drive.  And my wife plays the hell out of almost every one of the titles I've downloaded under her own profile.  As many of you know, recently my 360 shit the bed and they sent back a new unit.  My wife used to spend a great deal of time playing all of the Live Arcade titles on our original 360, and now with our new 360 all of the Arcade titles only list the trial version under her profile. 

I understand that Arcade titles are accessible to all profiles on the original 360, but if you were to travel to a friend's house with your hard drive the games would only be accessible to the profile that downloaded them and only if you're signed in to Live.  In this case it's MY F-ING 360, but I'm in a situation where my hard drive is connected to a new 360, and so I'm subject to the BS I described above. 

Is there a way around this?  Because right now my wife is pissed?  As am I, since there is no F-ing way I'm paying for all of the same titles again.   icon_mad


I think you might have to call MS tech support on this.  if I understand your issue the Live Arcade games you d/l under your profile arenot accessible to your spouse under her profile?

  When the office filled with steam I immediately turned around and went back out and didn't go back in until the steam cleared so for me that guy was just an enemy wandering the room like normal.

The one that got me was the guy jumping out in the funeral parlor.  I knew it was going to happen but just didn't know where


Spoiler for Hiden:
Yep, I did the same thing instead he came out of one of the storage freezers.  What did scare me was when you get the Shotgun for the first time.  The Lights go out except the one you are under and you hear the running footsteps towards and splicers jumping at you in the circle.  Good fun!

You realize that the Ageia physics isn't just for hardware, it is also a software physics middleware solution, right?  It's just that they also have a hardware board to help accelerate it or add further enhancements.

I kinda figured that out after I couldn't play the demo and it said it was looking for some physx dll  icon_wink
 I don't think I have any other games that ever used it, so I just thought it was going to be an useless process for something I don't have running in the background.  When I saw something about it showing up in the system tray I decided to axe it.


Doesn't bioshock uses that software?  I could have sworn when I d/l the PC demo it had to install that on my rig to play the demo.  Anyway, tried the demo last night and I'm not impressed...I'll wait for impressions
