8001  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Return of X-Com!!! on: April 16, 2007, 05:39:02 AM
Well that's one thing to ask for in any x-com remakes.
8002  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Crowley activity warning on: April 16, 2007, 04:38:28 AM
Well he just struck OO again.  I think it's time for joint forum legal action against him.

I'm willing to invest some time into putting him away or seeking some serious legal action on him.

There are kids that visit these forums and the kind of stuff he posts is worse than posting kiddie porn to them.

I mean, who know who he is, he's easy enough to track through IP logs and ISP use.  I'm perfectly fine with giving him a permanent record.
8003  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Monster Madness demo on Live on: April 16, 2007, 04:30:10 AM
Um, you know not all 360 games released at the $60 price point right?
8004  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Too Human Footage on: April 16, 2007, 12:02:45 AM
Yep, neither was 4 player co-op in, just two player when it was first announced.  Although I wonder if that's going to be same screen, split screen, or online only co-op.

I think they're trying to distance themselves from DMC and the like, while at the same time appeal to the Halo crowd.
8005  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I officially love the PSP on: April 15, 2007, 11:15:39 PM
I've been playing Metal Gear Acid 2 and boy do I like that game.  It's weird that it's a metal gear game instead of just a standalone game, but somehow it just works.  I was fortunate to have a friend who pretty much has everything in that game, yeah he's that kind of player.  The way he figures it is that it curbs his collecting tendancies without making him pay real money for booster packs in stores.  Anyway, he was going to hook me up with cards in game since I really don't like collecting, but I still love the gameplay.

One thing that's sorely missing is a good and simple multiplayer mode.  That's one area where Kojima screwed players over by tying the multiplayer a little too much to the single player game with his quirky fourth wall breaking connections.  Hopefully in ACID 3 they'll put in a full MP mode where you can choose characters and have straight card battles.

I'm really interested in Killzone Liberation now, especially since there's word that the online infrastructure mode is being patched in soon, along with a new chapter with 4 new missions.  I saw a video review of the game and not only do the graphics look amazing, it seems they really nailed the fps style combat, but from an overhead isometric action perspective.  I guess not too dissimilar from the old Crusader games.
8006  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Sixaxis Controllers for 40 bucks shipped on: April 15, 2007, 10:23:39 PM
Heh, I still find it funny how people complained and complained about the boomerang controller when they never had it in their hands, then now they complain about the sixaxis when it uses the same design as the original.  And now people want the 360 controller design, even though they were complaining about the Xbox design way back when it was announced too.
8007  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Carnage Heart: Portable on: April 15, 2007, 03:57:20 AM
So... any more word on this?
8008  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: IBM P4 2.8Ghz HT PC For Sale - $150 Shipped on: April 15, 2007, 01:11:37 AM
You know, it's sad when someone calls a computer with specs better than mine retro.  Tongue

I actually contemplated buying your PC as an upgrade.  slywink
8009  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Return of X-Com!!! on: April 15, 2007, 01:06:31 AM
If they can fix the bugs in the game, then delays are fine by me.

With a game of this scope, there's a lot of work to be done.

Of course, it could always turn out bad, but so far the devs sound like they've been on the ball about fixing bugs.  Also seems like the publisher is receptive to delays.
8010  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Too Human Footage on: April 15, 2007, 12:56:58 AM
There was also Prey, which started back in the Duke Nukem 3D days.

Honestly, it's pretty clear they weren't working on Too Human for the whole time, they probably shelved the project, much like Prey, so that they could do it later when the technology was better.
8011  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazing power tool invention. on: April 14, 2007, 11:56:12 PM
These guys should talk to any labor unions there are to start causing strikes and lobby for legislature.  If the manufacturers are going to play hardball this way, get the unions involved.  Those manufacturers and users have money, lots of money, the retooling costs are a lot but frankly they could absorb it easily.  But any time a stockholder sees a dip in a company's funds it's the end of the world.
8012  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Too Human Footage on: April 14, 2007, 11:52:08 PM
Half-Life 1 & 2, Stalker, all Blizzard games, numerous other titles.

Yep. Delays have never been an indicator of crappiness for me.

The great games that weren't delayed are simply the ones that never announced a release date to begin with.

And often the worst games are the ones that meet their deadline, and it certainly seems like that was the only goal of the developers and publisher.

So in the end, when it releases I'll read reviews and rent it and if I like it I may buy.
8013  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Mass Effect inches closer to launch on: April 14, 2007, 11:44:06 PM
Well there has been a lot of media around the net lately, and that all started about 6 months ago.  And a summer blockbuster-style release is possible.

They're probably shooting for June/July but leaving it open in case they need to delay.
8014  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: A great POTBS overview on: April 14, 2007, 11:11:44 AM
Who knows, maybe if the game is played enough they'll release a Pirates of the East expansion.

Although they said they wanted to keep the fantastical stuff seperate via the missions, I really wouldn't mind say an expansion with more fantastical stuff.
8015  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC] MAJOR bug in Oblivion: Shivering Isles! on: April 14, 2007, 02:10:37 AM
It's good QA.  The problem is that bug takes forever to replicate, 80 hours as above and it's in general something that isn't apparant at all until the issue strikes.

Blame the programmer to who messed up on that tiny bit of code in a program with over a million lines of code. slywink
8016  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [psp] gurumin: a monstrous adventure on: April 14, 2007, 02:06:21 AM
Ah, okay.  I just saw the preview of GoC2 and it seemed pretty cool, thought GoC1 might be the same.
8017  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bethesda buys the Fallout IP on: April 13, 2007, 09:50:53 PM
It has the same bleak and desperate feeling of Fallout, along with the same feeling of seeing abandoned homes and buildings, along with characters and factions that are not so larger than life, but are still eerie because of the way the bleak setting has gotten to them.
8018  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazing power tool invention. on: April 13, 2007, 09:47:33 PM
Go science!
8019  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [psp] gurumin: a monstrous adventure on: April 13, 2007, 09:42:59 PM
This, Generation of Chaos, and MGS Portable Ops are the three games I'm guying as soon as I get my PSP.
8020  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bethesda buys the Fallout IP on: April 13, 2007, 05:53:15 AM
Frankly, all this means is that interplay is in such dire straights they had to get rid of one of their last and biggest IPs.

I think it was just time for the IP to be passed on rather than going to the grave with Interplay.
8021  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: A great POTBS overview on: April 13, 2007, 12:16:29 AM
This comes out in June wasn't it?

We'd better organize well before the release then so we don't end up on different servers.
8022  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Return of X-Com!!! on: April 13, 2007, 12:09:33 AM
While this is certainly cool, you hadme excited there for a moment that they had officially announced that Irrational is working on an X-Com sequel.
8023  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: The Official GT Trader Feedback List (updated 3/07) on: April 12, 2007, 10:38:52 PM
+1 Speaker2Animals for a good C&C3<>MTW2 trade
8024  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 20GB PS3 Officially Discontinued on: April 12, 2007, 10:38:11 PM
Yep, games will be key.  Despite the price, there's still a lot of good features packed into the system.  While I do understand that people want the option of skipping such features for a lower price point, Sony will need to leverage those features and get some new exclusives to replace the ones they've lost.  Once this happens, it could be enough to make more people overlook the price.
8025  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Crowley activity warning on: April 12, 2007, 10:32:11 PM
He just hit OO not too long ago, I let the mods know but it's likely he's got enough free time to try and hit this site again.

Honestly, that boy needs to get laid or something.
8026  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I have a PS3 now....... on: April 12, 2007, 01:00:52 PM
Eh, hopefully Sony is smart enough to pump money into some new, but experienced studios to produce some new exclusives to replace the ones they've lost.

Main reason I would get a PS3 right now is to play some of the many PS2 games I missed out on and have the system be useful for future games too.
8027  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I have a PS3 now....... on: April 12, 2007, 06:52:58 AM
Say, can the PS3 controller's tilt function be used to control motorstorm's vehicles?  A la excite truck?
8028  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: STALKER GOLD! on: April 12, 2007, 02:11:33 AM
There's little white/cyan circles on the map that show where the zone transitions are.

Your path should go north through Garbage then west into the Army Base.

You can get an arrow on your maps that will point you in the direction when you double click on a task.  Won't work all the time though.
8029  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 20GB PS3 Officially Discontinued on: April 12, 2007, 01:07:30 AM
Not to mention that you can have a 120 to even 500GB hard drive in your PS3, provided you go out and buy an off the shelf model.

Heh, at least that's one area of feature customizing.
8030  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Need help Pronto.....Please on: April 11, 2007, 08:47:21 PM
I know that in general they're a good brand for memory related products like USB drives and even MP3 players.  They're reliable and they tend to use good parts.  Albiet they come at a cost because of that.

And yeah, there's a different between a much more expenseive sandisk flash drive and a cheaper flash drive.  Namely one of the things I've noticed with cheaper flash drives is that they have troubles transferring larger files, even if the flash drive can fit the file, it's often the hardware the manages the transfers on the drive are faulty and give errors partway through, not so on sandisk drives.

Paper Zelda?
8032  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: halo 3 beta dates announced on: April 11, 2007, 09:34:18 AM
I'm wondering what those new functions in the controls are, they keep referring to something new that one of the buttons does.

I know one of them uses the shield grenade and trip mine, or any other deployables they have in game.

I suspect you may have a purely optional ability to control other ground troops in this game.
8033  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: WTB: PSP on: April 11, 2007, 06:12:20 AM
Ouch man, a bunch of us who got caught up in PSP talk snatched up the available PSPs here about a week back.
8034  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: AMD Price Drops on: April 11, 2007, 04:49:10 AM
Yep, no need for brand loyalty.

One of the main reasons why I get ATI cards is they have consistantly better color quality on their cards.  NVidia has really closed the gap, but ATI is still better, and I'm not overly concerned with performance.

Word is AMD is introducing their new chipset soon, Barcelona, starting as a quad core chip.  Not sure if they'll take the tech and move it to dual cores.
8035  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Uncharted : Drake's Fortune on: April 11, 2007, 04:46:02 AM
Bah, don't you know a Vulcan death grip when you see one?  Tongue
8036  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Bill Harris' post today is terrific. on: April 11, 2007, 04:43:40 AM
Something like that is actually already high up on my things to do if I ever strike it rich list.
8037  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: A great POTBS overview on: April 10, 2007, 10:52:51 PM
Yeah, but one broadside on the sloop and it'll be just splinters and miscellaneous chunky bits floating on the water.
8038  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/9) on: April 10, 2007, 08:00:53 AM
Buying a PSP and looking forward to mobile ops and some rpgs.
8039  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Gears gametype for ATB's Friday nights... on: April 10, 2007, 05:52:35 AM
Word is that they increased the power on the Lancer and Locust rifle.  About damn time.
8040  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Mass Effect inches closer to launch on: April 10, 2007, 05:08:32 AM
Um, they did, they took it to cutscenes when that happened and you got high resolution CG cutscenes for those.  Those are hand animated setups.

Sometimes, it's just easier, cheaper, or saves more time to make it a CG, either in house or farmed out somewhere.  If they had gone in and made all those high detail in-game setups, not only would they have to make the models, rig them, and then hand animate them, it's also a great deal of time adding more tech into the engine that has to be prototyped, tested, made useable, then fully implemented.

I think you're asking too much of game developers from the KoTOR era.  Right now it looks like Mass Effect is on the ball, but only because of the system power, and the technical knowledge was available to do such things.
