7961  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Zuma - the suffering on: February 18, 2006, 03:39:51 PM
This game is the polar opposite of Hexic.  HExic calms me down and I sit and play.  Zuma makes me very angry.  There is a lot of it I still don't understand (as far as when balls will fall backwards after getting a combo and when they won't).  I just figured out yesterday you have a choice between two balls.  However, I can't get past 3-4 and most of the times I can't get past 3-3.  I need to find some kind of strategy guide that explains some stuff.

Just to make some of you feel silly, my 7-year-old son just beat the water boss after a few attempts.  I am proud of him. smile
7963  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I HATE KAMEO!!! on: February 13, 2006, 04:26:53 PM
This game still rocks.  I am now on the airships part of the game and I assume close to the end.  I have really enjoyed all the bosses and I love the look and play of the game.  I am sure my only complaint will be that it is too short, though I have put some good time in it and I still can go back and find all the fruits I missed and the crystal eyes and alternate skins I didn't find.  Also, there is the time attack thing and that secret room below one of the huts where I did the troll thing, but I didn't have all the warriors to do the next one.

I mentioned the bosses and I wanted to talk a little more about them.  I turned off the Whatnot hint guy when I started the game.  So, all the bosses I fought and everything I did in the game I did without any hints.  I wonder if the length of the game that some complained about was because they just went ahead and consulted the book at the first sign of trouble.  At any rate, trying to figure out how to kill each boss was fun and I think they were all very unique.  Some bosses I figured out right away and others I had to think about it while avoiding them for a good bit.  One of my favorite ones was the giant robot, because while I figured out his weak spot, it took me a bit to realize what to do after that (which in hindsight was kind of dumb considering it was fairly obvious).  I also enjoyed the ice spider guy a lot.

I am enjoying the crap out of it.  I recently unlocked 40 Below and I am just in love with the game.  Sad to hear you guys don't like it.

7967  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My XB360: I've lost all interest on: February 08, 2006, 02:31:37 PM
I love my 360.  I can play games, listen to my MP3 collection, and stream my XM satellite radio onto it.  One of the best things I have ever bought and with Ghost Recon 3, Oblivion, and Burnout coming out next month, I think I am set on games.  Hell, I want NFS and haven't gotten around to buying yet, so there are even games I want to buy still.  Plus, I would like to rent Condemned.  As long as one good game comes out per month, I am honestly satisfied with a system.

At any rate, don't sell the thing.  You will regret it later when some killer app comes out and then you are forced to buy another one, thereby losing money.  I haven't touched my PSP in months, but I refuse to sell it because I am sure there will be some good RPGs which will come out.

#2 - I have the EB protection thing and I'm not sure they have any to swap it out for.


I didn't know this piece of information.  I think I heard that if you swap yours out with MS and get a new unit with different serial, then your protection plan is no more.  So, if you aren't experiencing serious issues, I would hold off until EB starts to get more and then spring it on them one day before your year is up.
7969  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Back in Action (360) on: February 07, 2006, 06:40:08 PM
Devil, I would seriously replace it.  I had something similar (different error or just a blank screen) where a reboot would fix it and I got my return unit back and I haven't had the problem since.  They really have a quick turnaround on the units and I wasn't without it for very long.
7970  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Full Auto Scorched for a 5.5 in OXM on: February 06, 2006, 09:39:44 PM
This was one of my most anticipated launch titles (which of course didn't make launch).  Then I played the demo.  That killed any hopes for me.  Maybe Burnout Revenge will be good?  I didn't play any other the versions on the other consoles, so even if it was just a port with better graphics, I suppose it would be new to me.

7972  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why must I turn on my XBox 360 twice every time? on: February 03, 2006, 05:00:09 PM
As an update to this, I got a new XBox sent back to me yesterday and so far so good.  The turnaround was really quick on it.  I sent it in last Friday and UPS tried to deliver it ot me on Wednesday, though nobody was home.  So, I got it yesterday, but should have gotten it on Wed.  Pretty darn quick and so far the thing has booted up like a champ.  I only made two attempts at it where I had long cooldowns.  One was when I first hooked it up and the other was this morning.  I played Kameo for a bit last night and it never locked up or ran hot or anything (not that my old one did either).
7973  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Would anyone recomend Kameo? on: February 03, 2006, 05:43:35 AM
Just did the water boss battle and I just don't get what was so hard about it.  I beat her the first time I tried and in fact, I got rid of two of the orbs on the tentacles on my first sinking of the boss.  I was all prepared to be annoyed by the fight and it just never happened.

Anyone know if there's any criteria for making residents stay or is it random timing that they move in and out?


If you can catch themwhile they are just packed up to move you can talk to them and beg them to stay and they have in my experience.  However, if you don't talk to them for a bit and you get mail saying they left, it is obviously too late.

In better news though, Marble Blast Ultra is up on Xbox Live Arcade now and it kicks ass! smile


Hmmmm...where have I heard this before?
7977  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Full Auto demo on Live on: January 26, 2006, 01:07:24 PM
I had really been looking forward to this game, but after playing the demo, I don't think I will be buying it.  The framerate really suffered at times and I didn't like the feel of controlling the car.  The best I have placed was 4th, so I am apparently missing something with regards to how to compete effectively, but that wasn't what took away from my enjoyment of the game.  It just didn't seem to do it for me, which is too bad because it was my second most anticipated game behind Oblivion.
7978  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Marble Blast Ultra on Live Arcade on: January 26, 2006, 01:05:09 PM
I bought the game last night and had a blast playing it.  I did a little mutiplayer as well and it was pretty fun.  Some of the courses on Intermediate are pretty challenging.

by the way, the coupon clearly says 'no copies'.  So, use at your own risk.  Every time I hear of one of these, take them in and try I always get rejected.  Good luck though.


I used a printout of that coupon the other night to pick up Kameo at Best Buy.
7980  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox Live 360 games, what are you playing? on: January 25, 2006, 03:28:09 PM


I have played Gauntlet and DOA4 over Live.  I need to try out Joust online as well, since I have it.  None of the other games I have have any Live multi, just Leaderboards.
7981  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone else have the Core system? on: January 25, 2006, 01:15:02 PM
Quote from: "Sarkus"
You're gonna need the hard drive for Live arcade games or demos, if nothing else.  You may be able to get along without for awhile, but at some point the hard drive will be necessary.


Also, I read on the Oblivion fan Q&A that the game runs faster if you have the hard drive.  Arcade, to me, is worth the hard drive alone.  Also, considering you get a wireless controller and headset along with the hard drive for the price of the hard drive alone, there's no way I would have gotten a Core system.  I actually had a chance to get a Core system many weeks before I got my Premium and I passed it up because I knew I would regret it if I just got the Core.

Well, I found a thread on the XBox forums of people who have the same issue I have.  Many of them sent theirs back and the new ones they got have been working so far (although mine didn't do this the first few days I owned it).  So, I called and got them to send me a return box tonight.  I will update this when I get it all taken care of.

Lately she has been telling me the back story of Tom Nook.  Intruiging stuff.  One thing I can't figure out is the deal with the coffee.  There has to be something to the whol eletting it cool thing.  I feel like I have progressed with the pigeon, but then I feel like I go backwards with him and I am pretty sure it must tie into coffee and whether you let it cool and how much.
7984  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why must I turn on my XBox 360 twice every time? on: January 23, 2006, 02:24:29 PM
This morning I turned it on and got the E47 message.  TUrned it right off and back on and it worked.  TUrned it on and off about 10 times and it started each time.  It basically only happens the first time you try to turn it on after it has been off.  I guess I will see if it continues this week and if it does, I will call MS.  I would just hate to get one sent back to me that is worse and then keep having to send things back.  I haven't had the systme lock up or freeze when playing or anything like that.

Oh, today when I turned it on, I didn't have a disc in.  All the other times, I did and I took the disc out just to see if it would happen with it out this morning.  The unit doesn't run hot or anything and neither does the power supply, so I just find it odd.
7985  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why must I turn on my XBox 360 twice every time? on: January 23, 2006, 04:45:22 AM
No, the controller makes the system come on, but it just sticks at a black screen.  Then the controller stops responding.  So, it works at first and keeps working once I turn the 360 off and turn it back on to play.  SO, it isn't the batteries on the controller, but is the 360 getting stuck for some reason.  It only seems to happen when I have let the 360 sit for a bit.
7986  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why must I turn on my XBox 360 twice every time? on: January 23, 2006, 04:05:37 AM
Seriously. For the last two days, the first time I turn on the system, I get no picture and it just kind of hangs out doing nothing with a black screen. No controllers register. Then, I turn it off with the power button on the system itself (since the controller never registers) and turn it right back on and it loads up fine. Anyone else have this problem?

Quote from: "Hetz"

Actually, on the Major Nelson podcast (who is a employee of MS and a member of the Xbox Live Team) a couple of weeks ago he interviewed the head of the MS Backwords compatability team and he said basicly the same thing that was in that story.

No BC update until March, because the team was on vacation for pretty much all of January, then it would take some time to get the emulator to work on some of these other games.

It's show #154 and is really very imformative about the whole BC process.

http://www.majornelson.com/


I was going to post something similar, but you beat me to it, Hetz.  The other thing I learned from that podcast was how they choose games (or sometimes not choose them).  People got all up in arms that Barbie Horse  Adventure was BC.  He said they basically had to do nothing to get it to work.  Other games, though, they have to do a lot of coding.  So, if a game just works or works with little effort, obviously that game will be easy to add to the list.

Personally, I can't figure out why people want to purchase a new icon for Live. Yeah, they're dirt cheap, but it's like a new faceplate for your 360 - who's gonna see it or frankly care what it looks like?


It isn't for others to care about.  It's for you to care about.  And if people want to pay money for a different icon, then so be it.  If they had one that I thought was cool enough, I think I would do it.

I got my 360 the other day and I will second how impressive XBLA is.  I douwnloaded a bunch of the demos to try out and now I have to force myself not to buy every one of those games.  I need to figure out which are my favorites and limit myself. Geometry Wars was a lot of fun.  Basically a Robotron of sorts.  I liked it a lot.  I also liked Wik a great deal.

Early NPD leaks indicate the PSP slightly outsold the DS in December. Both handhelds were over 1,000,000 for the month.

Anyone have cherries in their town?  That is the one fruit I am missing.  I connect online and I rarely see anyone's town open anymore.  Everyone bored already? frown

At any rate, if one of you has cherries let me know and I will contact you trying to set up a time when I can come over.

It isn't really a game or anything.  It is more of a music/art toy.  I want it to tinker around with, but I also didn't think it would be 34.99 so now I am thinking I might hold off, especially since I just ordered Ouendan, which cost a decent amount of money.  I will probably break down, though, just maybe not on release day.
