I have one copy of the Tribes: Ascend Starter Pack and one copy of Dungeon Defenders that I'm still trying to give away.

I'll take the Tribes: Ascend pack if it's still available

I took my gaming PC with me when I went back to Indonesia a couple of years back in my checked luggage and it survived OK. I made sure to cover it with clothes so it wouldn't get too banged up but I left all the parts inside, just made sure they're all tight before I packed it.

My dad also carried a PC back with him in his checked luggage a few years ago and we took apart the video card, ram, hard drive, etc, and that too survived the deal.

Count me in as the mostly lurking kind though I have no issues with the number of people GT has. I "know" most of the regular posters here and I like the fact that GT is a small, tight-knit community of mature people/gamers. Plus with being half-way around on the other side of the planet kind of puts me a bit out of touch.

48  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Would a wireless network adapter work for gaming on a desktop PC? on: February 24, 2012, 01:38:49 AM
This is what I currently use at home and have been using it for a few years now and no issues for online gaming (FPS and MMO) or media streaming on LAN.

http://www.amazon.com/Cisco-Linksys-WET610N-Dual-Band-Wireless-N-Adapter/dp/B001QVQ7JU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330047053&sr=8-2

Your PC will think it's on a regular network since it will connect to the bridge via regular cat-5 cable. The bridge will connect via WiFi to your router. One thing I like about this set up is you can find a good spot for the bridge where the WiFi signal strength is strongest and not have to move the PC around.

If you do a lot of huge file transfers between PCs on the LAN, you'd still want cable connection though. File transfers through WiFi is painfully slow.

I used to live near Pasadena, well within your 30 minute drive limit. I lived in Rosemead and could get to Pasadena without hitting any freeways. Biyobi is right, there are plenty of options for you to choose from either in Pasadena itself or outside of it.

May want to look into the Rose parade route and maybe avoid living around the routes if you would prefer to avoid the road closures and crazy parking once a year =)

I'm playing this as well and so far I'm liking it. Haven't had time to play much though.

52  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Found out my mother has cancer today on: January 05, 2012, 03:24:27 PM
My ex was diagnosed with breast cancer, she went in for a lumpectomy, followed by chemo and radiation. Hers was a tough case for the docs too cause her tumor was attached to the chest muscles. I think she just past her 5 years now so can be considered cancer free instead of in remission.

The chemo days will be tough for both her and her caregivers, but like Roman said, there's an end in sight.

I bought an extra copy of Orcs Must Die! and the DLC for anybody interested.  Most of my Friends List already owns it and the others don't have it on their wishlist or else I'd give it to one of them.

If no one's interested, I'll take it off your hands. Do you want anything off my list? Maybe a copy of "The Ship" or GTAIII or portal?
54  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam: Great Gift Pile (trade talk - coupons, coal, etc.) on: January 01, 2012, 02:34:40 PM
Here's my list:

Copy of GTAIII
2x Copy of The Ship
25% off Valve
50% Back to the Future
50% Operation Flashpoint: Red River

For those of you who have not been paying attention, there is an absolutly beautiful cover of the Skyrim theme song.

Beware however, you'll be tempted to play the song over and over instead of playing the game.

Quote from: Jaymeson on November 19, 2011, 06:05:58 PM

Question on those street crimes - is there an option to incapacitate a bad guy instead of putting two in their dome?  I've been unsuccessful so far in trying to "wing" one instead of creating A DOA - and if there are different ways to do the street crimes, are there differing benefits outside of just completing the task?

There's a way to fire a warning shot if you hold down the left trigger (or whatever button you use to draw your gun) while aiming at a suspect.  A little circle will appear, and if you hold the button until it fills up, you'll fire a warning shot in the air.  This only works in certain instances, and other than the cutscene that plays at the end of the street crime, I don't think it makes any difference.

I'll need to try that. I hope it doesn't take long to fire that warning shot since the suspect may end up getting away, lol.

I keep seeing people talking about a tweak to the sound quality in the .ini file to help CTD problems. Have you tried that?

I did the tweak and still crashed. I updated my video card driver and that seems to do the trick but I still get the occasional CTD though, no errors, but still playable now.

I just got to Whiterun, talked to the Jarl and got a quest to help his army out. I walked out to Whiterun, walked around and constantly crashed to desktop. Grrr!
60  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: LA Noire coming to the PC! on: November 15, 2011, 03:37:22 PM
I've been playing this and spent all of last weekend playing it. It's running fine on my 2+ year old rig and I haven't had any issues except it crashes when I quit the game.

I've been playing with 360 controller and switching to my trackball on the shooting parts and so far that's been working good. Graphic is pretty decent though my rig only has ATI 4850 so I've set it at medium.

Gameplay wise it's pretty cool, I haven't played the console version so this is all new to me. I like that they scanned the faces of the voice actors and they're still recognizeable. The facial movements are also pretty good. It is tough to figure out which facial gestures are doubt and which ones are lies.

I do have a few gripes though, on the street crimes, I find it weird that in a city that big with that many cops, my character is the only one who's responding to all these calls and most ended up in a shootout in which the bad guys get killed. I know it's just a game but I think I've killed 20+ bad guys in shootouts and so far, no trouble for me at all.

Overall, I'm liking the game. Been a while since I got a good "puzzle" game like this one.

Picked up the game in Singapore on the way back from the office to the hotel. Now I gotta wait til Friday night / Saturday to play. I guess I'll just drool at the box in the mean time.

I had to click "Install" on the LA Noire page in my games section today. It started from scratch (I pre-ordered Sunday), so I don't think there's any helpful preloading in this case, sorry.

I'll have to try it tonight when I get home from work then to see if that works too. 12+GB will take me a few days to download  crybaby
Oh how I miss fast and reliable broadband internet
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: LA Noire coming to the PC! on: November 09, 2011, 01:53:36 AM
Is it released or pre-loading? Mine still says 1 day 23 hours to unlock but I'm outside of the US.
65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 in production!! on: October 25, 2011, 07:00:03 AM
I played a little bit last night when it unlocked. Tried MP but within minutes of connecting to a server, I got kicked out with the "Connection to server timed out" error. Not sure if that's my internet or game, it did happen a lot during beta though. So I tried the SP portion, graphics are pretty good even on my older radeon card.

I'm not sure I like the whole Battlelog thing since it's web based. I prefer the in-game server browser system like the previous BF games.

67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 in production!! on: October 24, 2011, 03:21:21 AM
I've been trying to download BF3 since Saturday and it keeps crapping out on me and restarting the download. I think the most I got was 7-8gb and had to restart it all over again. I thought it was just my internet connection but I guess not.

I paused the download, quit origin and restarted it earlier today before I went to work, it kept the download and resumed it. Hopefully it'll finish without any problems.
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad plus Rising Storm on: October 04, 2011, 06:44:10 AM
I should go back to this game, sadly, the lack of servers with decent pings makes it tougher to play MP. That and the fact that I keep getting killed is annoying, lol.
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 in production!! on: October 04, 2011, 03:51:01 AM
I tried it last night for a few rounds and I found out that I completely suck at FPS now.

There are some glaring bugs, like the weirdly looking prone bug sometimes and I got stuck on the ground once while in prone. But overall, it's a fun game, that is if I can stay alive long enough to kill anyone and get my K/D ratio above 1, lol.

The tac light is VERY annoying, though useful for the person wielding it, I can't see them to target them.

Surprisingly, I found a pretty decent number of beta servers in Singapore, so I can have a decent ping (roughly 100, give or take), not ideal but beats 300 pings any day.

I think I'll be pre-ordering this one, maybe after the beta is over.

75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Island on: September 06, 2011, 04:11:28 AM
I'm so interested in this game but I'm debating whether or not it'll be worth it for me since MP may not be as feasible with the pings and lack of local servers. Good thing it won't be unlocking til Sept 9 for my part of the world, so I have some time to wait for reviews before deciding if it's a buy or not.

With that, bring on the impressions!!  icon_smile

If you get it from Greenman (Assuming the sale code is still good) you get the DD version for 35$.  Check the deals forum.

Greenman code still works. I just picked it up for $34 (to the detriment of my wallet).
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Orchestra 2 - STEAM on: September 05, 2011, 01:07:23 AM
Does the regular version on Steam includes the beta access or is that only for the digital deluxe edition?

I'm still planning to pick this up but probably on the last day of the sale if the beta access isn't included with the regular version.

I usually stock up on EMP, gas and frag nades and mines prior to boss battles. I find those to be pretty effective for killing bosses.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I finished the game and I don't remember any of the bosses being immune to EMP and gas

I wish the grenades would stack up in the inventory though.

oh - Sorry to hear that - In europe the ping on Harks server is pretty damn good though, so you might be surprised

When I tried connecting to US servers for different games, my average ping is around 300-350. Not quite good enough for FPS.

I got a question for the pacifist achievement. Does turning turrets and bots to attack enemies counts as them being killed by "your hand"?

I noticed when I did that, even though I get them going hostile, I still got the "ghost" experience.
