Still resisting Tekken for the PSP.  My pockets can't handle another game atm.

Well, I'm comfortable running a soldier, defender and a Commander.  I just started experimenting with a Sniper.   I have a scout build and a heavy gunner build, but I am terrible with Howitzers

Well based on this thread about fanboy fights itself turing into one over the DS vs PSP I'd say its still alive and kicking...

I'm not a fanboy of either system, though.  I like them both.  I do have an opinion about one being better than the other, though, but I don't consider either system to be "my" system.  And that's what separates me from the fanboys.  I don't think anyone in this thread has honestly acted like a fanboy, though...not even Devil.

Actually, I think Devil does own a Ds.  i think he likes debating from the Pro-PSP side cause so many people on this board are Pro-DS.

That's my take on it anyway

PSP lost to DS. PS3 is looking real bad compare to XBOX 360. So fanboys of those two products are now in

Still not convinced the PSP is losing against the DS.  PSP games are starting to come into their own

Yeah, the higher we rank the better the AI will become.   We certainly need learn how to concentrate on one target and prioritze targets.  Heavy Gunners no matter what need to die first, imo.  Work our way down from there.
4648  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Warhammer: Online preview of two of the tank classes on: July 27, 2006, 12:06:33 PM
Quote from: "Misguided"
Are these really "classes" per se? Warhammer with classes (except in the broadest semse) won't seem much like Warhammer to me. I can understand the need for it in this kind of game, but kind of sucks they couldn't use a profession system ala WFRP. Then again, I've been adamant all along that this was a poor choice for an MMO from the start.

I'm curious as to why?   Most that I am reading is that Mythic is churning out a good   game and might cut into WoW's base

Black Orc

Now den, some times what da boyz need is a lad what can take a beating, and beat back! Dey need a lad wif a serious pair of tusks! Dem needs a Black Orc!”
- Grumlok, Orc Warboss on Strategy

"Da bigger da Orc, da stronger da Orc. Da stronger da Orc, da more dat's Orc's da boss. No wonder da Black Orcs is always da bosses!"
- Splinta, a Goblin in the Bloody Sun Boyz tribe

 Armed and armored to fight in the thick of melee as a warrior and tanker, the Black Orc matches physical hardiness with a down and dirty brawler’s fighting style that makes him the heart of any war band. With choppa and shield in hand, he can face down any foe unshaken. However, it is his unique approach to fighting that makes him as deadly with his fists as with either of those tools. He’ll knock you down so you can’t fight back, and then kick you while you’re down. There’s no honor among Greenskins, and there’s no such thing as a fair fight – and that’s the way he likes it!

The Black Orc Specialty
 The Black Orc’s fighting style might best be described as brawling. He attacks with all the tools available – fists, feet, elbows, shoulders, and assorted other spiky bits, including weapons. His various attacks are designed to jar, disorient, or otherwise disable his enemy. Each of these conditions leaves the enemy vulnerable to yet more punishment. This comes in the form of other attacks which deliver additional effects based on the target’s condition. The Black Orc’s use of these tools revolves around the philosophy that the best defense is indeed a good offense.

Playing as a Black Orc
 Combat for a Black Orc revolves around engaging and defeating enemies one at a time, while weathering the fire of their allies. As a front line fighter, the Black Orc is well equipped to withstand the attacks of his enemies. Though protected by shield and armor, and possessing a hearty constitution, his greatest strength lies in his ability to disable his primary opponent. His use of jarring blows and unexpected attacks allow the Black Orc to exploit the openings they create to reduce the enemy’s ability to fight back.

Fighting Black Orcs
When you fight a Black Orc it’s most important to know your enemy and his abilities. This allows you yo counter them and keep him from reaching the potential of his deadly power. He will always have the tools to engage you, so there’s little sense in trying to get around him. If you’re aware of his abilities – especially the multiple attacks he can chain off of one another – you can maneuver and break his chains, denying him maximum performance. Maneuverability, selective engagement, and an intimate knowledge of your enemy’s abilities are the keys to defeating the Black Orc.

Dwarf Ironbreaker

To strike an Ironbreaker is to strike an anvil. You are more likely to re-shape your weapon than to move him… and heavens forbid one lands on you..."
- High King Thorgrim Grudgebearer

The Ironbreaker is the quintessential dwarf – gruff, quarrelsome and taciturn. He is also your best friend on the field of battle, as any blow struck against his allies is a Grudge that is guaranteed to be repaid in kind. Equipped with his famed gromril armor, and practicing his elite weapon craft, he is a steadfast defender. This dwarf is proof against even the most powerful attacks, standing by his allies and ensuring their safety amidst the swirling chaos of battle. It is said that there are few warriors in the world who can boast they are as tough as an Ironbreaker, and none that can prove it.

The Ironbreaker Specialty
 Nobody holds a grudge like a Dwarf, and no dwarf is dwarfier than the Ironbreaker. Every blow struck against him or his allies serves to fuel his ardor. This in turn influences his every action – the greater the grudge born against a particular foe, the greater the effect of the Ironbreaker’s attacks. The means by which the Ironbreaker exacts justice vary according to his choice of attacks, but one thing is constant: The only escape from his vengeance is death!

Playing as an Ironbreaker
 As an Ironbreaker, your goal is to get between your friends and your foes and use your defensive abilities to absorb and deflect attacks. If you can’t immediately claim a foe’s attention, your grudge bonuses begin to make you a problem foes can’t ignore as you grow more and more potent in your defense of your allies. Obviously, Ironbreakers truly shine in groups but even solo they are quite capable as long as they can get close enough to wear down foes with their axe or hammer.

Fighting Ironbreakers
Fighting an Ironbreaker calls for some tough choices: do you try to wear away the anvil or do you attack his friends and hope that the anvil doesn’t fall on your head? The best approach is probably to remove the Ironbreaker through magic and ranged attacks, aiming to eliminate him before he can bring his power to bear. Barring that, a concentrated melee attack on the Ironbreaker may be your only hope to avoid creating an indestructible melee monster that knows your name and holds a grudge for a very long time.


The Ironbreaker Look
 Fully armored in heavy Gromril armor (shiny and ornate)
Uses large heavy duty shields (elaborate and well crafted)
Wields an axe or a hammer (also in the fancy dwarfen style)

I am going to start practicing with my defender mech as I could really use a break from being an NA.  Maybe I just don't have enough skill with it, I just can't look at the map and plan things out like that Turtle nearly fast enough to be effective.

You do a good job, Arkon.  It's a thankless job, but you do a awesome  job.

I dropped with Turtle last night and I had to fight my normal instinct to mix it up. He does a awesome job too.  

Don't get discouraged, Arkon.  Heck, most of the squad is used to you now being NA.  Also, with that experimental NA part you are using I think it will make our job much easier in Drops
4656  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 25, 2006, 08:27:17 PM

Eh.  Not too pumped about this one from what I've heard and seen.  I really am not a fan of 'empty your whole clip to kill one enemy' mechanics.  I could be wrong of course, and if the GT crowd gives it enough praise I'm sure I'll be there to play some MP.

You know you will be therw ith us.  Stop playing and pre-order the game!

My younger sister has been asking for a digital camera for her Birthday, but if you know my sister she will probably grow bored with it quite quickly.  

So with that in mind I am going to buy her one, but I plan not to spend anymore than 150.00.   The only condition is that it must be a 5 mega-pixel camera.   So can anyone suggest a nice cheap camera?

Gahh.... I'm so jealous of you all.  I'm thinking this is going to have to get traded, as I'm having trouble with the concept of idling for an hour a night waiting for someone, anyone from my squad to log in.  The 20 member squad limit was a mistake, and has killed the game for me, as I can see everyone but me playing.    :x

Agreed, it was awesome seeing almost 12 people in our squad room last night.   Squad limit needs to be upped by 10 or more slots.  This game only really shines when you paly with a group of friends.  

Watching Jarrod run around in the Frankenstein thing was hilarious.

Something that occurred to me as I woke up this morning.  A great idea for IFF in the game would be pennants on the mechs.  People could use whatever design they wanted on it, and it would stand out.

Whaddya think?

Edit: unrelated but interesting.  If you mount multiple missile counters, they DO stack together and fire together.  I'm going to have to experiment with this a bit.  Hard to do since I don't run into multiple missile AI's that often.

Also... link to a much better quality video of the unidentified weapon.

I like the flag idea, but I also like the yellowish\-greenish color we was using.  

Jarrod you can activate 2-3 missle counters at the same time?   I might have to experimet with this when I get home.

Quote from: "DonD"
I love the idea of being a scout, but the reality is..I like surviving battles more.

It seems like I should be able to scout and light towers and run away from battles, but in actual combat situations, I find that I can't get away quickly enough and end up really badly damaged and then I'm limping along until I get destroyed.  I s'pose I could try smoke and see how that goes.

I'm quite happy being the scout.  Keep going with the lumbering beast and I'll be content to zip around and grab COMBAS and maybe take on their commander.

I have smoke on my scout.  I'm not really sold on its usefulness, especially against the AI.  I found the best defense is just being able to see their ordinance coming and casually step out of the way before turning tail and running.

I gotta go log on now!

I must say that Stiffler does that best job I have seen of someone acting as a Scout

Yea Stiffler does a great job with that scout of his saved our squad more than once when we were in deep doo doo by taking down the enemy base.

I have to agree having Stiffler as a scout has saved enough sorties for us.

We need to institute a polic to help against shooting teammates.  If someone asks in the mic whether someone else is friendly or foe, everyone flash their headlights.  Or come up with a better idea than that. smile

The night mission we ran was pretty intense with the night vision.  You couldn't tell friend from foe.  I think I remember yelling ,"Turn on your lights so we don't shoot each other!"

This game can have some white-knuckle moments

Anyone know what the two light arm additions are?  Hoping they are better MGs than I have.

We're happy to announce that the first downloadable pack of new content for Chromehounds will be unleashed next week. And it'll be free!

SEGA and FromSoftware have made the decision to offer the pack free of charge by way of a thank you to HOUND pilots around the world. As you may know, we experienced some tricky server-load problems right after launch, and we hope this will go some way to saying thanks for sticking by the game.

The pack will be available to download via the Xbox Live Marketplace at 00:00GMT on 19th July.


Light Arms
A sniper cannon for fast, furious engagements. Features a smaller magazine to reduce weight.

Heavy Arms
An improved HC1500/D, for those in the know. A giant cannon with massive destructive power.

Assist Part
Additional armor with an enhanced KE defensive profile. It’s shaped to better turn bullets.

Colour Pattern
WWII Tricolor Camouflage
A brand new World War II inspired camouflage pattern.

Quote from: "Lockdown"
As good as I think it is, and as fun and addicting as I think it is, I am relatively sure I would not still be playing if I wasn't in a group with people I know.  The game is a ton of fun, but I think (for me), it's because of playing with the great people here.  I'm pretty sure if I was "out on my own", the game's legs would be significantly shorter.

Very, very true.  Also the reason why I WILL NOT buy this game.  The second I buy it and by the time I'm halfway decent at playing everyone here will have moved on to something else and with no riveting single player I would then have a $60 coaster.  I just can't jump into a new game and play it constantly within the first few days of release.  Heck, I'm even now just starting/trying to get into Oblivion and I had that since it came out!

As much as I'm dying to play it with you guys I know I would not be ready in time.  I'm the type that reads manuals, reads strategy guides and practices forever and never really plays the game in question.

Mark my words.   The second Madden 07 comes out nobody here at GT will ever mention Chromehounds again.

Sad.  :cry:

Madden is crap, I will still be playing and talking about chromehounds.  Chromehounds even has caused me to give up on EQ2 and Titan Quest.

Chromehounds has taken the place of WoW and Titan Quest as well
