7721  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (4/17) on: April 17, 2006, 01:36:21 PM
Probably just Brain Age, but man I want FFXI so bad for the 360.  I played it on PC and loved it, but finally stopped because of the afore-mentioned lack of soloing ability.  I fear I will eventually break down and buy it, though.  Hopefully I can be strong.
7722  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gamecube too dark on S-Video on: April 17, 2006, 01:34:11 PM
I have a question.  Are the S-Video cables something you have to buy extra?  I never had a TV with S-Video or above and now I have an HDTV.  All my components are taken up, so I can't use the component cables and I guess it would be nice to at least have S-Video.  Did the S-Video cables come with the CUbe or do you have to buy them separate?

Then I am a numbskull too cuz I see zero enjoyment in going through again.  To each...


I actually didn't play the second level until I got all the bronze, silver, and gold artifacts.  I then tried trial mode on level one and didn't make it, so I went to the second level.  I will go back and try again until I beat that time, though.  I love little extras like this and instead of this game being 6 hours for me, it will be far longer.
7724  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Just Finished Kameo on: April 16, 2006, 03:30:37 AM
Quote from: "Jarrodhk"
Depward:  Now you and Moriarty should play the online co-op stuff together.  I'm not that good as that type of game so she's been lacking a partner to go through them.


I'd be up for it, myself.  I keep looking to see if people on my friend's list are playing Kameo.  I did see one person, but I sent an invite that person didn't respond to.
7725  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Another Oblivion bug? on: April 14, 2006, 12:19:36 PM
I seem to be under the spell of a bug involving a quest in the fighter's guild.  Basically, I am with someone in the guild going to a cave to kill someone.  I clear out the first level and get to the second level.  I clear that out as well.  There is a button, which from what I read, is supposed to open a gate right by the button.  When I press it, nothing happens.  So, I can't get further int he quest and if I want to just skip it to maybe wait for a patch, then I will have this guy follow me around everywhere.

I have tried reloading my autosave into the dungeon and it still isn't working.  I have done a search on the web and someone said a certain other gate needed to be closed before it would open for them. I closed that gate, but it didn't work.  Others have mentioned clearing the cache when the game loads worked for them, so I will have to try that.

SUpposedly it is a well-known bug, so I am wondering if any of you have found it and if you managed to get around it.
7726  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DS Lite on: April 12, 2006, 06:45:35 PM
I got my navy blue Lite a couple weeks ago and love it to death.  Was worth the extra money to get it early,  but I am a DS fanboy.
7727  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Kameo coop patch, new content released! on: April 09, 2006, 05:08:59 AM
Quote from: "Destructor"
So, anybody know what exactly the Warrior Pack (the one that gives Kameo 10 or so more looks) contains? I really hate how there's no way to fully preview what you're gonna pay for and download on the Marketplace (especially with the Themes and Icons).


I bought this one for my kid, who really loves Kameo, so I'll answer for you.  Basically, it gives Kameo about 10 outfits you can dress her in.  I think I remember seeing cowgirl, ninja, pirate, robot, Joanna Dark, Egyptian, Native American, some kind of camo thing, and then a couple others I can't remember.
7728  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - Next download details/pricing emerge on: April 08, 2006, 09:53:07 PM
I know everyone wants to go all conspiracy theory on Bethesda chargin for content that they couldhave put in and all that.  However, it isn't like the game doesn't already have more content than most will actually see in the game.  If it was a 10 hour game and then they charged for another 10 hours by breaking it up into 10 $5 chunks, I could see the anger.  This game supposedly has 200 hours of content.  I don't feel they're trying to rip me off by adding a few quests here and there for $2 a pop.

Now, I also don't thyink they ripped content out to charge.  I will give an example.  There is mention of the Orrery in the Mage's Guild.  It's the locked door in the lobby at the Arcane University.  There is a lady who runs it and she mentions it and mentions it is in disrepair.  Now, there is a module about to be released which gives you the quest to get it fixed and then use it.  I don't think it was in there and ripped out, but instead they had all these mods planned already and put content in the game to kind of hint at it since they knew they would be releasing it so close to the launch of the game.  However, consipirists will be consipirists and people like you are just more the glass is half empty type.

Nobody has been cheated at all with content being added to a game with so much content in it already.  If people don't want it, they don't buy it.  Pure and simple.  Nobody has been cheated and nobody owes them any free content.

but it does indeed look like the free content for games is gone...except for Namco.  :lol:


Don't forget that Kameo gave away free co-op multiplayer.  I think there will still probably be free stuff from time to time, but buying things will be the majority.  I'm cool with it, too.
7730  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lost in Blue (DS) help! on: April 08, 2006, 01:33:10 AM
I really enjoyed the game a great deal and finished the main story.  I tried out the second mode where you play as the girl, but lost interest with a lot of other DS games coming out and I recently traded it and a bunch of other games to get Daxter and Syphon Filter for free.  It's definitely a game for those who like a little bit of "work" in their games (like Harvest Moon).
7731  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Kameo coop patch, new content released! on: April 07, 2006, 07:14:27 PM
I tried inviting someone on my Friends List who I saw was playing Kameo to a multi co-op game, but they never accepted my invite.  I can't remember who it was or if they were even from this board.  If they are, shame on them.
7732  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lost in Blue (DS) help! on: April 07, 2006, 07:11:20 PM
I had all kinds of trouble with drawing on the carpentry mini-game.  The way I finally got it working was I would start drawing the shape right before it turned the corner.  Hopefully, you understand what I mean by that.  If I remember correctly, the shapes would move horizontal and then move vertical.  So, right before it made the switch, I would start drawing.
7733  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - Horse Armor "Mod" Poll on: April 06, 2006, 08:49:09 PM
Quote from: "Destructor"

Or you can just do like I did on my PC version and create a mod that makes all purchasable horses (and Shadowmere) unkillable. After I lost 2 horsies that way, I got tired of it and coded it in. biggrin


Am I like the only person who games that lives with the consequences of their actions?  My horse died and I walked until I got a new one.  Your powers are weak, old man.

Wow... did everyone just completely lose interest in this or what?   :shock:


As I mentioned, I would only buy this if it was for a handheld.  So, no impressions from me.
7735  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon - Co Op Interest on: April 06, 2006, 12:09:56 PM
I'm glad I got to play GRAW with you last night, Jarrod.  Thanks for sending me the invite.  It took a while for me to accept because I was finishing up the Tomb Raider download, playing the demo, downloading the Kameo multi co-op patch, and loading up PGR3 which I had recently acquired.
7736  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tomb Raider Legend demo on Live today on: April 06, 2006, 12:07:47 PM
Played through the demo last night and I really liked it.  It confirmed the fact that I will be picking it up.  I especially liked the little see saw puzzle and thought it was cool that they had some physics in the game.  Also, that was the finest crate pushing I have done in a game.  smile  Seriously.  WHat I mean by that is that you could actually push the crash in any direction, whereas in most games you can only push a crate in 4.
7737  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox 360 Media Connect - Anyone actually running it? on: April 05, 2006, 04:23:45 PM
I forgot to mention my one complaint with using the 360 to stream from MCE.  It seems to cut off the very end of songs.  I would guess it is something like the last second or three of a song.  Not sure why it does it, but it does.  Maybe I will look on the Google and see if anyone else had the problem and has fixed it.

Normally, you don't get any gold at all in random animals.

I've seen it about twice in my play time up to level 13.


I've seen it much more than twice.  My luck is 50.  I actually hat ewhen I see gold on animals, since crabs, fish, wolves, and bears don't tend to carry much pocket change.

Of course that would be an issue.  But if there are other horse armors available, why pay?


Well, if it is like the majority of mods I saw out there for Morrowind, the art isn't as good as the designers came up with.  I love the idea of mods, but I find quality mods are few and far between.

Lots of free armor right there...all I'm saying is that it seems silly to charge money that hundreds if people are doing for free.

Are they gonna charge money for a new house...tons of house mods out there already...so what do they do, tell people it some type of violation to make house mods?


I meant horse armor and more specifically, the horse armor that Bethesda created themselves.  I don't think they could do anything if someone created horse armor in and of itself, but if someone created a mod and used the exact same art, there would be an issue.

Bethesda PR man Pete Hines let me know that the PC version will be released in a day or two for $1.99 to download. I have to admit, my Shadowmere would look great in one of those sets.


Until someone just makes a quick mod...then it's free.  1.99 for armor is silly- 20 "minor" vanity mods and you pay for the game again-with no real content- no thanks!


Ah, but is it legal to make a quick mod of a product for sale by Bethesda?

Before I had XP Media CEnter Edition, I had Media Connect running just fine.  Now, I have Media Center Edition running just fine, although I did have an issue with getting that one set up, but eventually got it working.

My problem is I enjoy the handheld HM so much more than the last GC HM.  So, I won't be picking it up for the GC, but I will be getting the DS version when it is released in the states.  THe game mechanics just scream portable to me for some reason.
7751  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Revolution Specs on IGN - Less Powerful than the Xbox 1 on: March 31, 2006, 03:38:19 AM
Just to have three posts in a row Tongue I want to admit that I sound like the hugest Nintendo fanboy.  In many ways I am.  However, I am not the type of fanboy that bashes on the other systems to make my system look better.  I simply prefer Nintendo over the other guys, but my 360, PS2, and PSP get plenty of loving and I would defend them as well if someone bashed them.

This is the same company who told us that online connectivity wasn't a big deal, but is now building a console around it.



They didn't think it was a big deal at the time and it wasn't.  Nintendo is a very patient company and when they think the market is readyfor something, they will do it.  Look at the results.  The Nintendo WiFi service is very cool with all the stat tracking and all.  It works pretty well most of the time and is totally free.  So they waited until they felt they could do it right and right they did.

I think the whole Xbox Live Arcade is going to bring more casual people to gaming than a low cost gadget system like the Revolution.


So a $400 system that plays old classics people remember trumps a $150 system that plays old classics that people remember?


Damn, you beat me to it.  What he said.

It's a current technology - I'm sure the majority of Americans don't have broadband but it's was a huge plus for Xbox.

Why be behind the curve on something like this?


Cost.  Pure and simple.  You want ot keep the cost of the console down to hopefully get more casual people to buy games and you are going to have to sacrifice some things.  HD is one of them.

I didn't read through this whole thing so I'm not sure if it's been pointed out yet, but I heard something a while ago that I'm pretty sure pertiains to the Revolution:

Nintendo is making money!!  biggrin


From my post which is a couple of posts above yours:

Quote from: "DiscoJason"
Let's not forget that Nintendo is the only company of the big 3 that doesn't lose money hand over fist, but instead posts profits. Sure, they were 3rd in the race overall, but I would rather be 3rd and make money than be first and lose it.

I admit though, Nintendo fanboys such as yourself, are pretty passionate in defense of their system. I would have thought the Gamecube would have taught you all not to believe all the promises of Nintendo....but whatever.


The Gamecube has provided me with a great deal of entertainment, so I am not sure what I should have learned.  I never thought the Gamecube would be revolutionary or innovative in and of itself.  I thought that some of the games would be and some have been.  Take a look at things like the bongos for the Donkey Kong games, the GBA/GC interactivity with AC, Four Swords, and Final Fantasy.  Then there's just great games like Zelda, Pikmin, Resident Evil, etc.  Add to that the fun games like Mairo Party, Mario Soccer, etc.  Nintendo makes games that are just plain fun.  They don't have great graphics, but I don't care when I am playing them.

Then comes the Revolution, which should have all of those positives and then have the controller and whatever other secret they are holding off on announcing until E3.  I was one of the few on this forum that saw the potential of the DS when it was first announced.  It's now a huge hit.  I know the handheld market is different than the home consoles, but I really think them not trying to directly compete with MS/Sony is the way Nintendo should go if they want to still make money in the home console space.  Let's not forget that Nintendo is the only company of the big 3 that doesn't lose money  hand over fist, but instead posts profits.  Sure, they were 3rd in the race overall, but I would rather be 3rd and make money than be first and lose it.  Nintendo will live on and do just fine with their release.  Price, good family games, and innovation will see to that.

I have all the consoles and don't suffer form fanboyism.  Sure, I like Nintendo over all others and I defend them because I think they need it, but I don't put down the competitors.  With all these great gaming systems out there, I count myself lucky that I can enjoy them all and not have to side with one.

I've been playing Syphon Filter as well and think it is a great game.  The fact that I can play an FPS of this quality on the PSP just makes me smile (just as playing Metroid on my DS does).  I have been playing Daxter more, but that is because I love me some platformers.  When I get through Daxter, Syphon Filter will get more playtime, but I already know it is a great game.

Coupled this with the usually slow loading times of the PSP


PSP games are getting much better about this.  Daxter barely loads at all, for instance.  I think that just like with the PS2, developers are coming up with ways to decrease these times.
