8681  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Smod for Half Life 2 on: February 27, 2006, 09:14:14 AM
One problem I have with those texture packs is that they added way too much make-up to Alyx, who looks like she doesn't wear any to begin with.  That little detail does change her character a bit.
8682  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FNR3: Official Lockdown Knockdown Tourney (Sign up here) on: February 27, 2006, 09:11:57 AM
Rats, my gold trial period just ran out and I'm out of cash to buy both a sub and FNR3.  Thankfully I've gotten a new job and should be getting regular paychecks again, but until then...

Say, does anyone here that's participating have a digitizing rig?  I'd like to see videos of these fights if possible.  Is there a way to save and send replays on live?

You might want to mention that this is for Fight Night 3.

In a nutshell, he added a lot of the stuff that's in FEAR.  There's even melee attacks.

Now, if only someone would go and make the combine AI smarter.  I mean they're nowhere near as good as HL1 soldiers, let alone FEAR's ai.
8685  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon Demo - Sometime in the next year on: February 25, 2006, 07:27:21 AM
So what's the current word on the demo, we've been getting different dates on the demo from various people.
8686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon Demo - Sometime in the next year on: February 24, 2006, 08:26:08 PM
And thus, Knightshade hath spoken and so be it.  slywink

Man, I'm glad it's still coming out soon.
8687  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Spidey's got a new costume... [Spoiler] on: February 24, 2006, 09:30:19 AM
The black suit may have something to do with Carnage being in this movie.

Most likely it's to go along with some darker themes in the movie, or something like that.
8688  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Ghost Recon Demo - Sometime in the next year on: February 24, 2006, 07:16:11 AM
Technically, with the new release date, it still isn't two weeks before the game.
8689  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Revolution SDK only $2000 - projected price $150-$200 on: February 24, 2006, 07:15:01 AM
Now, if they can actually either promote the system to a mature audience alongside the kid games, or relax the restrictions they had on the games for the console (which it seems they did for all the Resident Evil stuff on GC) then this lower dev kit price could really pay off for them.

Nintendo really has learned that it's the games that make the system.  The gameboys and DS are a good example, a system with older tech or quirky design will still succeed if the games are good.
8690  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: February 22, 2006, 05:25:12 PM
I was going to run a smaller pitboss game on the same server, I'm hoping the next patch allows multiple pitboss games on the same system.
8691  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [WoW] Ahn'Qiraj held hostage? on: February 22, 2006, 04:29:08 AM
I was kinda hoping it wasn't a hoax, this way Blizzard could ban the entire clan as a show of force against stupidity like that.
8692  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worst Movie of All time candidate on: February 21, 2006, 06:34:13 AM
I like Mark Hamill's Joker better, at least the voice anyway.  slywink
8693  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: February 21, 2006, 05:25:53 AM
Well, obviously he's taking the aggressive route to world domination.
8694  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: February 21, 2006, 01:11:09 AM
Can anyone else confirm two Dandridges and where they were located?  If they were right next to eachother then I suspect he was playing both and simply consolidated, that's cheating.

Otherwise, if he was eradicated early in the game and took over a vacant slot, that's okay.
8695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Do Xbox live accounts work for both Xbox 1 and 360? on: February 20, 2006, 10:06:31 PM
I was just wondering if Xbox live accounts work on both Xbox 1 and the 360.  Since I finally got a live account for the 360, there's a few games for the original xbox I've been interested in playing online.

I've actually got two spaces open so if you finally lose washington Hroth you can always fill one of them.  Lemme look and see which those are...

8698  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Uwe Boll really that bad? on: February 19, 2006, 10:04:22 AM
The thing is, isn't the point of reviews and word of mouth supposed to help you avoid bad movies in theaters and rental?

You can try to be objective about this, but it boils down to your money.  Why waste several hours of your time and a $10 movie ticket to see a crap movie when there are so many indicators that it's bad.  Let the people who are paid to see these things take the initial cost for you.  Let Uwe Boll's track record speak for himself.
8699  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So, The Cave is bad on: February 19, 2006, 10:01:00 AM
If I recall, this was an Americanized version of another British movie of the same name.  The british one had an entire female cast and relied on real scares instead of being just another monster movie.
8700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about Xbox 360 HD resolutions on: February 19, 2006, 09:58:45 AM
I'm not entirely sure.  "i" (interlacing) mode uses less power than "p" (progressive scan) mode, but how much more?  1080i technically is rendering only 530 pixels a refresh (I think).

Someone more familiar with HDTV tech will have to answer that question.  I know some here swear that 720p is way better than 1080i, but I haven't heard the reasons why.  Then there are those that say that 1080i is every bit as good as 720p.

I know that developers are avoiding 1080p mode since it's very processor consuming to render at that, which suggests that 1080i mode really isn't that much better than 720p.
8701  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Anyone have unreal tournament 2004 for sale/trade? on: February 19, 2006, 07:59:51 AM
Strangely enough, I have an extra dvd collector's version that I don't play anymore.  Still have the DVD case with the bonus disc and manual.

I'm not interested in any of those games, but do you have any books or comics you want to get rid of?

I'm especially interested in production art stuff, you know, those "The Art of..." books for various movies and games.

Should mention that I'd send this to you for free, but if you have any of the above that don't want it'd be much appreciated.
8702  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Uwe Boll really that bad? on: February 19, 2006, 07:56:59 AM
Stiffler, read this: http://www.somethingawful.com/articles.php?a=2649

Then try to defend him again with that argument.  slywink

In short, he does write his own scripts.  He ignores what good writers have written for him and writes his own stuff.
8703  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What the heck is with women these days? on: February 19, 2006, 07:54:28 AM
Who is that girl?  The second one, not the first image which has now been removed.
8704  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Commandos Strike Force Demo on: February 19, 2006, 07:52:57 AM
Er, I should clarify.  By not that bad, I mean it's actually pretty good for a MoH/CoD clone when you just have to shoot things.  But it's also a bad thing in that I didn't see what makes this a Commandos game just yet.

I'll try the stealth mission and let you know how that goes, assuming I can fix the weird freezing problem.
8705  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / SUV + Phone + Crash - Arm = Waaaaa. on: February 19, 2006, 07:50:20 AM
Would this classify as irony or poetic justice?
8706  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about Xbox 360 HD resolutions on: February 19, 2006, 07:48:45 AM
You have to pick one and the xbox will scale the game to that resolution, just like a PC.
8707  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / A Scanner Darkly- new trailer - HOLY CRAP!!! on: February 18, 2006, 07:12:03 PM
I suspect they do both.  Let a program handle some of the basic shading, then let real animators/artists handle detail work or entire scenes if the automation doesn't provide what they need.
8708  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Commandos Strike Force Demo on: February 18, 2006, 07:09:41 PM
I tried it.  It's alright, the FPS portion actually isn't that bad.  It's remarkably similar in feel to a Call of Duty game with the ability to switch between one of three soldiers.

Unfortunately, the game had frequent temporary freeze ups that would seem like a complete computer lock up until it just suddenly started working again 10 seconds later.

The first mission they show is a straight up kill everything mission, so not a good example since it played basically like MoH or CoD.  I haven't tried the second mission, which is supposed to be a lot more stealthy.

I'd have to say the demo is worth a try.
8709  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Uwe Boll really that bad? on: February 18, 2006, 08:26:20 AM
Technically, we've seen Dungeon Siege's crappy trailer, and its director and whole production line is well known for the crap it produces.
8710  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Uwe Boll really that bad? on: February 17, 2006, 07:06:38 AM
Whoah, after reading that I don't feel bad for him at all.  Well maybe a little.  

Anyone see "The Producers"?

I get the feeling like he's a completely deluded guy that some producers picked to make bad movies that would completely bomb, thus allowing them to use the tax loophole to make money.

However, with the way he deliberately chose sets based on how cheap they were instead of based on the story makes me think he knew what was going on.

The funny thing is, those scripts the writers game him would probably have been cheaper in to film in the first place.
8711  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Outfit Trailer/Demo News on: February 16, 2006, 06:38:38 PM
I suspect that's what these next gen games will be, older gameplay with a few tweaks and better graphics/bigger scale.

That is, until they figure out how to use the system and turn its power to gameplay features like AI.
8712  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Uwe Boll really that bad? on: February 16, 2006, 04:38:48 AM
The key here is that he doesn't respect his source material.

Alone in the Dark could have been a much better movie, and a much cheaper movie, if they set it in it's more appropriate locale of a haunted mansion, and with the ghosts and creeps of the game.

Admittedly, a lot of the material he uses there isn't much to respect in the first place, I mean Dungeon Siege?  There was a story to the game?  You have to ask why he's even making a movie for this game.  Considering all the crap titles he's gotten his hands on, I really do think he's making movies just to exploit that tax loophole, which is now closed.  Now that he can't get funding to make more movies, he's trying to fix his image.

You could say he's just making films, but just making something isn't enough.
8713  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / BF 2 question on: February 14, 2006, 09:52:47 PM
Don't click the "Play Now" button, that'll load your profile and use the quick match feature to find a game and connect you to it.

Just load your profile, then search for a game normally.
8714  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Playing RF Online Beta on: February 14, 2006, 07:42:15 PM
Say what you will about the gameplay, but I love the artwork for this game.
8715  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Sweet Science on: February 14, 2006, 05:24:23 AM
In as well.
8716  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: February 14, 2006, 01:25:22 AM
Yes, puny mortals.  Weaken yourselves so that when the time is right, my Incan hordes shall crush your pathetic armies.

Let's not forget that four player split screen co-op mode on the 360.  Brings a new meaning to inviting your friends over for a trip to Mexico.  slywink
8718  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I HATE KAMEO!!! on: February 12, 2006, 07:43:18 PM
I wonder if it was the dev team or publisher that made that stupid choice.  The Xbox needs kids games, not all of them need be mature titles.
8719  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: February 12, 2006, 07:40:21 PM
I made sure to set it so that it never goes into power save mode, and never turns the hard drives off.
8720  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I HATE KAMEO!!! on: February 12, 2006, 07:15:14 AM
I think the biggest problem with the game is that they couldn't decide what they wanted it to be.

First you have a kinda childish fairtale land and some children's book looking characters.

The plot is also pretty simple.

However, then there's bloody fighting, puzzles and controls that are often too difficult for children.  You've got combat awards for killing in a game that seems more about adventuring, along with a bullet time for killing enemies quickly.
