Quote from: Lockdown on August 24, 2006, 12:41:59 AM

Thoughts and Impressions after kicking Soulchilde's ass ... err, after playing for a bit:

1) The game is pretty much no-frills, no extras, straight up, poker.
2) The interface works.  There is nothing super innovative that I (we) saw, but it is certainly serviceable, and non-combersome for the most part.
3) Betting is easy, and the use of triggers was a good move by the developers.  
4) Countach set up our room and between he and I did some inviting.  It seemed to work pretty well, although Grue got in without an invite.  Either blind luck or his preferred player list got him into the room with us.  I would suggest if there are enough people online (on your friends list) at once, making a private room might be better.  That of course will depend on how long we all are interested in playing.
5) The chatting and stuff makes the game more fun.  Without it, playing for fake money, I'm not sure it would hold alot of people's interest for very long unless they are big Hold'Em fans, in which case, I think it wouldn't matter.
6) There is a single player component, as well as multiplayer, each with different play types including tournaments, which is cool.

Here are some highlights from the first game I was in:

1) I ended the game with more money than Soulchilde.
2) That's really the main highlight as far as I'm concerned.   icon_smile

Was fun.  I will play the game more, but mostly due to the genuinely cool people we have on our forums.  The game itself is fine, but I think unless you're in the mood to play, sit around and bullshit with the guys, etc... it wouldn't be something you would race home to do.  

Things we pretty much agreed on:

1) Getting and using the camera while playing this game could be painful.  Noone really wants to see Soulchilde's face.
2) The Ravens are going to win 10 games this season... or so someone predicted.
3) KeySJU is going to buy a racing wheel when he sees it on the shelf for Forza, even though he will tell you he won't.
4) YellowKing will tell you he "stinks at this game", then proceed to win two hands in a row and run off with your money.
5) I fold alot, and when I actually do win hands, they are for some of the smallest amounts of money imaginable.
6) ping is pretty good, but will try to get you talking about other things so you don't notice how many hands he's winning.
7) Harkonis bought a fighting stick to play Street Fighter II, and plays alot.  If he challenges you to a duel, you have been warned.
8 ) Quite a few people from our forums like to visit Alaska.

On a closing note, I think 10 to a table would be even better than 8. 

 icon_wink





ALL LIES!  except the part where I left the table with less money than Poncho  saywhat   Anyway, looks like this will be a good game for awhile so I'll win my money back.  Luck was on his side last night  mad

Great fun all!!!

Once you figure it out let me know as well.  That's the only part I want as well
4651  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: When will Microsoft abandon subscription-based multiplayer? on: August 17, 2006, 04:24:07 PM
It really depends on how will Nintendo and Sony implement thier free service.   Live is a awesome service and imo worth the yearly fee I pay.  Now, if Sony and Nintendo offer something like Live! gold for free then I can see it being a big deal.  let's not forget that Live! Silver is free and just can't play MP games

I still want to play Chromehounds.  Work has been hectic lately.  I hope to log sometime this weekend with it

Think I will be sending this back to Gamefly.  I just can't get this game and I LOVED Resident Evil.   They made some design decision that makes the game rather unfun for me.   thumbsdown on this game for me
Well, I think the first problem is that you're comparing it to Resident Evil.   retard


Well, considering it is a Survival Horror game what else can I compare it too.  The game is quite unwieldy for me in it's current form.  Not having fun cause of the design decisions.    I see the greatness in the game, but for me the underlying issues I have just isn't fun for me.  I really have no problem with the save system, but escort mission are crappy , aiming issues with guns and not being able to choose my own leveling path are just some of my issues. 

Again, the game isn't for me in it's current form.  I haven't sent it back yet as I might try to give it one more go if I can force myself to load it up again tonight

4661  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Rising impressions! on: August 13, 2006, 05:48:15 PM
Not sure if I really like this game.  I am tryng to find the fun, but the poor aim ability is not very good in my opinion. Before anyone asked I switched it to camera aim and it still sucks.  I'm just not finiding it much fun.   I'm finding that I have to force myself to play which is never a good thing.  Think I am glad I rented this from gamefly.


Spoiler for Hiden:
I let one of my escortees die as I got tired of him lagging behind. The dude Aaron in the Women's Clothing store


Also, I don't like the random level up skill.  I would rather pick what I want to level instead of the game doing it for me.

Again, I think I am glad that I rented the game instead of buying

Now that the new forums are up, I am of course very happy, except for one small thing...

I have noticed that when posting now, there is a Spell Check button next to Preview.  This saddens me to no end.

If you choose to use this button, it will undoubtedly ruin the charm of all your posts.

Personally, I think you should ignore this button out of principle.

Your friend,

I haven't played the game, but, IMO, the worst part of the save system is the "one game per storage device" part. So if my brother buys the game, I can't play it without getting a memory card. Lame.

Hold up - so are you saying that, well, in my case: my brother and I 'share' an Xbox 360.  I can't have a save game since he already has one?


I'm thinking it's per profile.  So if your Brother has his own profile he should be able to save....I think that's the way it works

If it's a keeper than I'll just buy it from Gamefly since they are selling it at 43.00 for members  and this is before any discounts.
