4881  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN Titan Quest review on: July 05, 2006, 12:44:32 AM
So I decide to try out some of the fixes on the Tech boards, so I do one of the more drastic and delete the quest file which will reset your quest log to nothing, but allows me to play my toon.

So I blaze through the quest and I get to AThens.  I defeat the Minatour Boss outside of Telkine room and I am about to portal and sell and the games CRASHES and gives me a blue screen of death.  First time for this.  So after XP restarts automatically I go back in to my game and my lvl21 Assassion is back outside of Helos with a empty quest log. 3 Hours of playtime down the drain.  :evil:  :roll:   :evil:

Methinks the signs are telling me that despite how fun this game really appears  I just need to get rid of it.  FUCK!  

At least I got it as with a Best Buy gift card.

-EDIT-Well, I think I solved my crashing issue and was able to make it to Eygpt after blazing through the main quest in Greece.  The good thing about all this I suppose is that my lvl 22 Assassin now has some kick ass epics.  Two Bloodstone rings, Soul Carver, Hyperion Breastplate, Two Pieces of the Obsidian Set (Helm and Hand Axe), and another Hand Axe I forget the name.  Also, got a nice green dagger called Deathweaver's Legtip.  It has a stat that I don't understand

Deathweaver's Legtip
60 poison damage
5.0% chance +257% poison damage
2-8 bonus damage

Can somone explain 5.0 chance +257% poison dmg?

Soulchilde, try this from the devs:


Issue: My character got corrupted and will no longer load!
- Open My Documents\My Games\Titan Quest\SaveData\Main\[CHARACTERNAME]\\Normal
- Sort the directory by "date modified"
- Delete the latest created .que file
- Try to load the character again (this may reset some quest data)
NOTE: This bug is fixed in the first patch, which we're trying to get into player hands asap.

Tried that fix last night and my game is still bugged.  Still very pissed that all my time is wasted.  No wonder I lean towards console gaming so much.  

Trading this POS away
4883  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Titan Quest-DVD version up for trade on: July 04, 2006, 12:54:17 AM
Nothing out there I want right now, but will entertain offers.  Games comes with DVD rom case with intructions and fold out

EDIT-Due to FINALLY solving my crashing issues I am cancelling this trade.  Thanks for all the offers
4884  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN Titan Quest review on: July 04, 2006, 12:52:02 AM
Well, this fucking game is going up for trade.  After dealing with multiple crashes and finally getting and beating the Telkine the games crashes on me while I'm getting the quest update from Kyros.  I Reboot and restart my game and the ship captain that takes me to Egypt WON'T talk to me.  That's I'm done.  So, damn pissed right now.  Level 19 Assassin down the drain.

Putting this up on the trade forum if anyone wants this POS
4885  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Blade: the Series impression on: June 29, 2006, 08:33:45 PM
Quote from: "Dafones"
It's a stupid television show.

And did I see right? Blade stabbed one of the "main" vampire characters in the leg with a silver stake, and she didn't ash away? Way to fuck up your own vampire logic for the sake of a plot point and to keep a non-red shirt vampire.

Not a plot hole per se.   In the first Blade he spiked Quinn twice and nailed him to the wall.


There's only one way to save this show: late night lady vampire softcore.

I agree with Purge "Hardcore"
4886  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Seriously, what's up with the A.I. in DoA4? on: June 29, 2006, 12:41:22 PM
Quote from: "TheMissingLink"
Come on now.  I swear, sometimes, the computer pulls of a reversal 3-4 times a match.  On the easiest difficulty.  I'd say that 50% of my matches tonight, my very first attack was reversed.  

And don't get me started on Alpha-152.  Took me a good 30 matches the other night to finally beat it.  

I gave up tonight fighting it.  Didn't want to break my controller into a million pieces.

Why the decision to make the A.I. so incredibly hard?  And with DoA4, I wouldn't even say the A.I. is hard - it's cheap.  And it's brutal and nasty.  I don't see any real positives from making this kind of difficulty the default and lowest difficulty setting in the game.

Because I appreciate hard A.I. with fighting games.  Virtua Fighter 4: Evo has the hardest difficulty I've come across, without feeling cheap.  When I get beat in VF4, I've been outmatched and out-strategized.  And I change tactics, and I try other things for a different result...but in DoA4, it's just hard and cheap just to be hard and cheap, it feels like.

So, what the hell, Team Ninja?

You are talking about the dev team that made Ninja Gaiden. I forget the lead producers name, but he is on record saying he likes to make his games very hard and difficult

In a word it's crappy.   I'm going to pick out the things that made me roll my eyes.  That had to make the girl a hot vampire chick that takes his syrum.  Get the fuck out of here.  Next, Sticky Fingazz CANNOT carry this series.  He is not a action star and looks very stiff in his fight scenes.  Back to hot vampire chick. Desperate attempt  to grab the adolescent males. Just too many other plot holes to mention

The show is going to be a early cancellation.

i saw a few of the first commercials for blade - the one with the blade character doing a lot of talking - hes um, pretty terrible.  it actually didnt surprise me that they quickly stopped running those commercials and aired "vampire intensive" ones instead - these WITHOUT a single line of dialogue from the blade guy

he really needs to go back to acting school

His nickname is "Sticky".  What did you expect?

Actually, it's Sticky Fingazz and if you remember the rap group Onyx then you will remember who he is

Wish I could! I'm going to be working friday, then I'm actually heading home to spend some time with friends and family.  

I'll be up for playing late the next week though.

Okay, lets try for late next week then.   I forgot this was 4th of July weekend coming up
4891  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GRAW MP on 6/30/06 on: June 28, 2006, 03:30:50 PM
Although no new achievements ( BOO, Ubisoft) I would love to play the chapter 2 missions this weekend.  The way I see it we will need at minium 4 people, but the more the merrier.  The mission difficulty has been upped and the AI is much more aggressive and quite better with tactics.  Some of the missions requir people to take different weapons in the 4 categories.  Everyone can't go rifleman or sniper.  Heck, someone might actually have to take a Dragon/Missle Launcher

Anyone up for playing this weekend?

Don't know if I can do this.   I understand this is new ground, Thanks Bethsoft, but I have a issue paying  almost 20 bucks for 4 maps.  

I'm undecided at this moment.  Sigh, who am I kidding I'll get it cause most of the people I play GRAW with will have it.  Its the nature of the beast I guess

Maps not released yet on the 360, but the 1200 points is confirmed.  I don't think I can do 1200 pts for 4 maps.   1200pts = almost 20 bucks.  

Thats a freaking hard pill to swallow

4900  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumble Roses: Demo on: June 09, 2006, 12:04:02 PM
I didn' see any discussion on this, so I wanted to start one.  I didn't go into this with very much high hopes, but surprisingly after downloading it last night I had a very fun hour or so playing with the various modes.   The wrestling seems well done, but I did notice that some of the hit detection seemed to be off.  After getting my ass kicked in one vs. one matches I rung of a string of 3 victories in tag team.  

I must admit when it comes to wrestling games I lean towards the Fire Pro Wrestling (MY Fav), but I can actually see myself giving Rumble Roses a rental

4907  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / X-Men 3 on: May 30, 2006, 02:17:04 PM
Well, I enjoyed the movie to an extent.  He certainly did butcher some of the Xmen cannon, but seriously you would have to be a fan of the Xmen comics to see where he took some liberties.

Also, having Arclight running around with the Morlocks was a bit much for me.  Also, Callisto only power was being able to locate mutants.  Superspeed was never a power she had

Anyway, my feeling on

Spoiler for Hiden:
Cyclops being dead is a toss up.  They never really showed you what happened to him.  It only implied that he died.  As my sister said .  He could be  in the lake just like Jean was.  Also, if you didn't see that whole Proffesor X taking over the Comatose man thing coming you should be shoot.

Also, I hear the Hugh Jackman has signed on to do a stand alone Wolverine movie

Wii Press Release


May 25, 2006

Following its overwhelming debut at E3 2006, Nintendo today announced the current fiscal year unit shipment forecast for its new home game system, Wii™. Nintendo also confirmed that the price of the Wii system, which incorporates unique freehand control, will not exceed $250 in America, or ¥25,000 in Japan. The company plans to ship 6 million systems to retailers around the world between its launch in the fourth quarter of 2006 and the end of its fiscal year on March 31, 2007.

The projections are part of a full-year financial forecast that sees growth of 18 percent in sales globally, based on anticipated continuing strong demand for the Nintendo DS™ portable game system, as well as a successful launch for Wii.

The company also said it expects to sell 17 million Wii games in the period. Exact launch dates, identification of the launch library of titles and details on the unique Virtual Console aspect of Wii will be announced soon.

4912  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 8... sorta on: May 24, 2006, 06:40:44 PM
I will pick up the Dark Horse comics and I hope he puts a better spin on the Buffy series

S6 and S7 aren't my favorite Buffy season.  With Season 4 being my all time favorite.  Anyway, I found the series finale to be rather poor

Spoiler for Hiden:
I just didn't like the way JW cheapened the Slayer powers.  While he has multiple Slayers I just thought the whole "Potentials" things was stupid.  

Also, I hated what they did with Spike

Oh and Drusilla has to be the BEST Buffyverse villian

4914  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Another MTV extravanganza: Gears of War on: May 15, 2006, 08:54:44 PM

Underscoring the ongoing convergence between entertainment and technology, The Race to E3 will make a groundbreaking debut across multiple platforms including Xbox Live. In connection with the show, Xbox 360 owners will be able to download the first-ever high-definition television content on Xbox Live Marketplace. Premiering the week of May 8, these 3-minute episodes take viewers into the lives of the team at Epic Games, the world famous game developer behind “Gears of War.” Then on Friday, May 19 at 10 PM Eastern/Pacific, the drama culminates in the primetime special Gears of War: The Race to E3, on MTV2, with additional exclusive content available on, MTV Overdrive and Xbox Live.

“We’re tapping our Project Greenlight experience and translating it to videogames, a creative field that rivals the movie business—and in the gaming world, it doesn’t get any bigger than ‘Gears of War’,” stated Larry Tanz, CEO LivePlanet. “We are excited to partner with Xbox, a brand known for pushing the boundaries of entertainment, and MTV2 to offer this unique program across multiple platforms.”

As much as I want Gears of War after the way MTV screwed up the 360 preview do I really want to watch this?

4917  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Exclusives - Who wins? on: May 10, 2006, 02:57:14 PM
My PS2 sat mostly unused under my tv set. Last game the grabbed me for it was either Suidoken IV or GTA 3.   Matter of fact it was GTA 3, but my Xbox went just as unused.  So I guess it really come down to preference.  

I'm really in love with my PSP and see no reason to get a DS, but using your analogy because the DS has the more recognizable game its the clear winner.  I just don't see it that way.  I am having loads of fun playing Syphon Filter, Madden (even in its buggy state) and HotShots Golf.  It want you like that makes  difference
4918  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Claim: 360 is just about FPS. Can't be more wrong. on: May 10, 2006, 02:38:09 PM
You know Scott I understand what you are saying, but it seems to me that most of those games from different genres come from the 3rd party support.  While I understand that you want MS to increase thier marketshare, but unless Dev Houses start producing the  God of War, Guitar Hero and the like for the 360 then what can MS do.   I guess they could go out and buy the Dev Houses like they did with Bungie, but honestly this will only work so much.

Honestly, I think MS is going to come out on top this generation in the NA and EU market.  While getting Japan would be nice Sony is too well entrenched into that market.  

Btw, anyone notice that the 599.00 version of the PS3 has no determined price in Japan.  It's being left open to the sellers to set the price.  Does that seem wacky to anyone else?
