4881  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Oblivion's Dark Brotherhood... Yes or No? on: April 07, 2006, 03:58:33 PM
Quote from: "mytocles"
I have the first quest for the Dark Brotherhood and spent some time deciding whether to complete it.  I normally play only "good guy" characters, although I do love to sneak and steal (Morrowind, Thief, now Oblivion).  I joined the Assasin's Guild in Morrowind after awhile, as it was considered "honorable" killing.

The Dark Brotherhood is and entirely different concept, though, it seems. So, do you belong or not? I'm on my way to complete the first assignment, btw. So I'm a Yes... nod

Please put any major spoilers in the Spoiler box.. or give sufficient warnings, lol.





So whom did you manage to murder to get the invite?

4883  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tomb Raider Legend demo on Live today on: April 06, 2006, 12:39:31 PM
Still undecided, but the demo was quite good. It certainly did bring back memories of the very first Tomb Raider that I played on the PS1.

I have this in my Gamefly que so I will give it a rental then decide if I should keep it

Actually, I think you delay becoming a full fledge Vampire if you drink everynight, but if you go the 4 full days without drinking then you will turn.


Not really certain of this , but I am about to tackle my first vampire den.


Also if you can't use the Chapels of the Nine try a Daedric Shrine.

Didn't the men win the whole thing like 3 years ago?

I guess it's what have they done for you lately! slywink



Yeah, they did and the team plays like they are owed a national ranking.  Hell, they was going to snub the NIT cause they was upset that didn't get a tournament bid.


Gary Williams needs to light a fire under the ass of the Men's program

I'd be interested in GRAW multi. I just got my 360 a week ago and have been mainly playing Oblivion, but the time I've spent with GRAW has been great. I'll probably suck though smile.



Heh, don't worry Obilivion has diminshed all our skills.  It was pretty sad seeing us get picked off in the co-op campaign mission.  I'll be playing a little more GRAW for now on

I see this as a Bethesda/MS testing the waters to see how well it will go.  I'm not to keen to have armor on my Horse really, so I won't buy it

Now, if they offer a pack with additional questline especially for when you become the head of the respective guilds then I can see plunking down money for those, but not for armor just for the cool factor

Looks like a Mod is up on the marketplace that adds horse armor.  Only bite is that is cost 200 Freaking points!!!

Don't know if Horse armor is worth 200 points

QFT


I still think too many here are giving Nintendo a pass.  Lets be honest most gamers especially young gamers like pretty graphics.  

I understand that Nintendo is taking a risk, but it could fall on its face like the Dreamcast.  Awesome system and before its time, but it failed BADLY.  

Anyway, with the Deathgrip Nintendo has on the handheld market they can take this risk .  Cause as someone has said

I'm not really interested in this show. Racism is out there on both sides of the color lines. Honestly, the best thing you can do if you have a friend of a different ethnic background is to talk to them candidly about racism.


I have no interest in convincing you to change your mind about Black. White.  Like I said, I've found it interesting, but I don't think I could recommend it to someone else.

That said, one of the things some of the show's participants have been struggling with is the discovery that a frank discussion about race and racism is a poor substitute for the actual experience.  It was just in this most recent episode that Rose (who, like her mother, tends to be a little over emotional) was reduced to tears at the realization that she'll *never* connect with her new black friends the way they're connected with each other.  Race, she says, is more than the color of your skin; it's the sum of your experience and cultural heritage, and no amount of makeup can fake that for them.

That may seem self-evident, but I thought it was interesting watching her try to come to grips with it.

Quote from: "Peter Ames Carlin, for [url=http://www.oregonlive.com/living/oregonian/index.ssf?/base/living/1143632876105150.xml&coll=7
The Oregonian[/url],"]The African American family, on the other hand, is led by Brian Sparks, a 40-year-old contractor who is so defined by anger it's easy to suspect that his rage has as much to do with personal relationships as it does with racial ones. His wife Renee is more laid-back, but she is far from passive, which makes for some awkward moments with the Marcotulli/Wurgel clan.


Wow, I would have said the exact opposite.  Brian might read racial motivation where none was intended, but he's always seemed willing to talk things out and has tried to get through to Bruno, the white father, long after most people would have thrown up their hands in disgust.

Renee, on the other hand, has actively tried to sabotage the white family.  One incident that sticks in my mind was when Carmen, the white mother, went shopping for clothes with Renee, and Renee deliberately steered her towards outfits that Renee later complained were ridiculous and offensive.  She's as closed-minded and judgemental as Bruno.

-Autistic Angel



WoW, AA, I didn't want to come off as being unreceptive.  That's far from the truth.  I just have no interest  in the show.  The concept is daring, but to me as a black man I have no interest in trying to understand what it like to be a white man in America.  Our differences is what make this a great country.   Accepting those difference would go a long way in making alot of this black/whit stuff go away.  

Then again this is all just my opinion

Quote from: "kathode"
The hardware upgrade seems almost pointless really.  I've got faith that the controller and the system will end up with some really cool games.  But since it seems that the hardware is going to provide minimal power or visual feature upgrades, seems like you could knock a signficant amount off the price and development cost by just making a small add-on that sits underneath the GameCube, with internet stuff, the controller receiver, and whatever stuff they need for the virtual console.  Maybe a bit too 32X, though.


So can we expect a port of Obilivon on the Revolutions?  Cool  Tongue
4901  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 30, 2006, 04:37:40 PM
I think I am a little over 28+ hours in and my lvl 15 Spellsword has partial Orcish armor and carries a Glass Longsword as main weapon and a Longsword with +20 Mana drain as a back up and I rarely meet Bandits/Maruaders with comparable gear.  Most still have a mix of steel and Iron with a little bit of Dwavern/Orcish and Glass Gear and that is fine.

I have no issue with the scaling system.

Nintendo lost me as a gamer back in the 16-bit era and lost me as a portable owner when I get my PSP.  

I'm not in the market they are looking for and that's fine.  Do I think they will crumble and close doors?  I doubt it.  The GBA-SP and DS will carry them for a long time to come.  Hell, they could probably bow out of the console wars and concentrate on hand-helds and still survive.  


Nintendo is looking to be the "Other" console, but I think if parents try to buy Lil Jimmy a Revolution for Christmas and all his friends are getting PS3s and 360s for Christmas most parents are going to have one pissed off kid.

Matter of fact I have a question re: Bruma Mages guild

I stole the Mages Spell book as requested, but I really felt bad as she mentioned she was looking for it.  Is there a quest to help her get it back?

Please tell me some of you are starting to see how the backward skill system and level scaling nonsense are FUBAR and indicative of poor design.


Not me, LE, but I really like the system.  Could it be better?  Sure, but this is leaps and bounds better than MW.   Honestly, for me this is the first time a game has entralled me like this in a long time.

Actually, it not a bug.  If you have the other quest the she gives for the recommendation you will need to complete that first.  It it a pain? Yes, but a bug?  No


I ran into that as well last night.
