361  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vice City Help on: November 06, 2004, 03:13:47 PM
Wow, a game controller sure does make a difference in this game.  I used my MS sidewinder and easily won the helicopter mission on the second try.  In fact, I made it with one minute to spare and it was fun.... not frustrating.  Highly recommend using a gamepad for the flying missions.
362  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Racial Traits Revealed!!! on: November 05, 2004, 08:26:40 PM
So how do these work?  Do you get all 4 traits right away on level1?  Do they grow in power as you level?
363  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vice City Help on: November 05, 2004, 06:33:00 PM
Okay, thanks for the tips.  That has been my strategy for the past few tries... kill all the bad guys first, then start on the explosives. By the way, the timer starts once you pickup the first explosive.  My next step is to try my sidewinder gamepad.  Hopefully that will make things much easier.  

The game is awesome except for this one mission.
364  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vice City Help on: November 05, 2004, 03:55:58 PM
My current mission requires me to fly a helicopter to grap 4 explosives and drop them at 4 locations around a construction site.  I have 7 minutes to do this.  Flying the copter is very frustrating with the keyboard.  I can't even come close to placing all 4 explosives in 7 minutes.  I probably couldn't do it in 10 minutes.  Does anyone know if this mission is required to finish the game?  Is there a cheatcode to increase the time?  Would a gamepad help tremendously instead of the keyboard?
365  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 PATCH details. Patch due out tomorrow on: November 05, 2004, 03:34:55 PM
Darn it, I guess I will skip this purchase this weekend.  Hopefully they will have a better patch before Christmas.

Back to playing more Vice City (pc).
366  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WoW - FREE Open Beta date announced on: November 05, 2004, 11:51:42 AM
Just got the Blizzard newsletter.  Open beta to start Nov. 8th.  

I must try the Taurens.  They just got a new mount.
367  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Class Discussion on: November 05, 2004, 01:22:59 AM
Yes, I would say the undead are the most popular race.  Though the classes are harder to define right now.  Mostly because not all the talents and special abilities are in place.  

In the next patch, they are adding the talents, special abilities, new pets, and new pet abilities.
368  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Release Date 11-23 (N America, Aus, NZ) on: November 04, 2004, 08:19:52 PM
YES!  Releasing right before the 4 day weekend hits.  Can not wait!  

In the press release; 14.99 for one month sub, 13.99 for 3 months, 12.99 for 6 months.

$12.99 per month for me, not too damn bad.
369  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Why WoW? on: November 04, 2004, 05:57:10 PM
Yes, they are giving all races racial abilities.  Though it may not make it to retail in time.
370  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Why WoW? on: November 04, 2004, 03:34:46 PM
WoW may not be too impressive from the initial retail release, but you must consider how Blizzard supports its games.  They will be improving, expanding, adding content for years to come.  Plus think of all the cool events Blizzard will be hosting and all the hidden treasure/secrets to find.  The ideas are endless.

Blizzard has the plans and manpower to make WoW fresh for a long time.  This is what excites me the most.
371  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 PATCH details. Patch due out tomorrow on: November 04, 2004, 02:54:01 PM
I would like to purchase this game and play it while waiting for WoW.  Can anyone confirm that the patch has fixed many of the retail problems?  
Thanks
372  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Semi-Official CG WoW Guild Poll-Please Vote!! on: November 04, 2004, 02:04:29 AM
Having a well organized fun guild would be the ultimate on a PVP server where all the action is.  I voted Horde PvP.
373  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Kerry concedes on: November 03, 2004, 08:44:09 PM
Quote from: "Greggy_D"
Yes....props to Kerry for accepting defeat as graciously as he did.  He probably would have done better if he focused on what his actual "plans" were.  He never did really tell us other than to say "I have a plan".


Exactly

And, his supporters spent more time flaming Bush than campaigning for Kerry.  That strategy backfired.

Now instead of bashing, we need to come together as a Nation and support our President.  We can still voice our opinion in helping to guide his future decisions.  All is not lost.
374  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Kerry concedes on: November 03, 2004, 07:00:14 PM
Did Kerry say that he would pull out our soldiers and not do anymore attacks?  Just curious.
375  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WOW stress 2 has begun on: November 02, 2004, 11:30:10 PM
Interloper, wait until you see the undead's Undercity.  That place is amazing in detail.  And don't forget to take the bat ride into the city too.  Just awesome.

I would be interested, most definitely.  My character, undead rogue.

I like Night Watch as a name.

Okay, I'm getting this instead of X-Men Legends this weekend.
383  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Music] 3 Inches Of Blood on: October 29, 2004, 04:31:36 PM
I bought the 3 Inches of Blood CD.  It is good.  Thanks for the recommendation.  I very much like the theme of each song, ancient medieval themes.  Many of the songs I wouldn't compare to old 80's metal.  Though there is one song that sounds like old Maiden and one song that reminds me of old 'kill em all' metallica.  The singer is the weak link of the band, but he could grow on me as I listen more.

The Lamb of God CD released recently is one of the best metal CDs I've heard in a long time.  Their previous releases don't hold a candle to their new one.  Night and day really.

The new Megadeth is good too.  Can't wait to see them in concert again.  Their last tour (a few years ago) was one of my favorite concerts ever, even though it was in a small club.  And I've been to well over 100 metal shows in the last 18 years.  Highly recommend checking them out live.
384  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bards Tale Impressions on: October 28, 2004, 07:25:16 PM
I have great memories of playing Bard's Tale on the C64 back in the day.  Great times.  I just can't believe this remake was turned into a action/RPG.  Really really sad.
385  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Music] 3 Inches Of Blood on: October 28, 2004, 03:34:02 PM
Hmmm... sounds good.  I will pick it up today, if my local music store has it.  Terrible band name in my opinion.    Just like 'Lamb of God'.  They are awesome and their latest CD rules all.  But the 'Lamb of God' name turns off a lot of people.

Thanks for the recommendation!
386  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [GC] X-Men Legends and other GameCube Questions on: October 27, 2004, 04:20:38 PM
I do not own a PS2 or Xbox.  My PC and gamecube keeps me happy.  Though it is tough to read all the threads about San Andreas and Halo 2 lately.  Patiently waiting for the PC versions to come out.

X-men Legends is one of the few cross platform games that has made it to the gamecube.  Has anyone played it on the gamecube yet?  I would only be playing single player.  I don't buy too many games.  I have limited gametime, so I'm very selective on my game purchases.  My last GC game I purchased was Tales of Symphony.  Top-notch 5 star game and one of my favorite RPGs ever!  But now I want to play a more action type game.  Would X-men fit the bill or should I wait for Goldeneye?

There are some damn good cube games coming out or have already come out.  Paper Mario and Pikmin 2 are on my must buy list.  Anyone play through Pikmin 2 yet?  There is Goldeneye and Metroid Prime 2 (I loved the first one) still to come out this year.  Residential Evil 4 looks great too.

What has happened to Animal Crossing 2?  I haven't heard anything recently.  Is it still coming out?
387  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GTA: SA Impressions on: October 26, 2004, 03:41:35 AM
Quote from: "Kevin Grey"
I'm just saying that, graphically, it sucks really, really bad.


This is exactly why I'm waiting for the PC version.

PS2 owners:  Did you really expect this game to have great graphics with little or no loadtimes?  If you want better graphics (than Vice City), wait until the PC version comes out.
388  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / LCD Monitor Question... on: October 25, 2004, 08:48:49 PM
I have the same question about this 19inch dell monitor.  

I'm considering this DELL deal (as described in the original post).  But I'm only going to use this rig for gaming.  I've never owned a LCD monitor.  Is the featured 'FREE' LCD monitor good enough for gameplay?
389  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / awesome deal on a Dell 8400 desktop [ends 10/25 11pm CST] on: October 25, 2004, 08:27:33 PM
I'm seriously considering this deal, but is the 19 inch LCD monitor good enough for quality gaming?  I would only use this rig for gaming.
390  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / World Of Warcraft to debut week after HL2? on: October 25, 2004, 06:26:19 PM
Looks like Blizzard is going to avoid the HL2 rush.  Hopefully I will get my copy before Thanksgiving day.

391  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / November 2004 - greatest game rush ... ever? on: October 22, 2004, 03:41:53 PM
Big day indeed.  

As soon as the stores open I will be picking up:
Half-Life 2
Goldeneye
World of Warcraft (my favorite of all the new games)

I'm going to wait for the PC versions of Halo 2 and GTA San Andreas next year.
392  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Choice got tougher - Bloodlines now shipping the 16th too on: October 21, 2004, 04:20:51 PM
Man, an incredible historic day if all those games are released.  

If gaming stores were smart, they would open at midnight to help with the rush.
393  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sacred PLUS: October 29th on: October 20, 2004, 02:02:34 PM
I'm about ready to dive into Diablo 2 again with a new character.  I really love the character building, treasure hunting, and boss fights.  Do you recommend that I pick up Sacred instead?  This game seems a lot like D2.  

Plain and simple, is it worthy or should I stick with D2?
394  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Dell $750 off $1500+ laptop purchase on: October 20, 2004, 01:37:50 PM
My order is still good.  They say it will ship by the end of the month.
395  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Dell $750 off $1500+ laptop purchase on: October 19, 2004, 04:03:00 PM
Yeah, I just can't see myself playing top of the line games on a laptop.  I will probably play some old stuff on it though.  

I just ordered a Inspiron 5160 with a P4 3.2 mobile chip, 512MB RAM, 64MB Geforce card, 60 GB harddrive, DVD/CD burner, burner software, internal wireless card, and wireless mouse for $906 total.  Cool.  My wife will be happy.

Thanks again, Charlatan
396  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Dell $750 off $1500+ laptop purchase on: October 19, 2004, 02:24:19 PM
Okay, this is awesome.  Perfect timing for me to see this post.  I'm about ready to order a Dell laptop for my wife.

Any recommendations?  Here are my/her requirements:
The keyboard can't be too cramped.
She will only be using this laptop for e-mail, our finances, internet, and  minor webmaster tasks.
Internal wireless card (we have a wireless network in the house)

Thanks for the heads up!
