3  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Silent Storm CD 1 broken on: June 07, 2005, 12:41:29 PM
That would be JoWooD AKA the worst publisher EVER. AKA Guild never patched and still releases a Gold edition with a BETA patch that broke as much as it fixed. So I don't hold much hope for them to help me out in Europe land.

Orspn Scott Card (AKA my favorite Author) wrote the story line. I am really intrested on what he did with a video game!

7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Has everyone else given up on Halo 2 and Multiplayer? on: December 17, 2004, 03:57:14 AM

8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Has everyone else given up on Halo 2 and Multiplayer? on: December 16, 2004, 04:11:33 AM
I am still playing HALO 2 Live every chance I get. On the campus I would say  that the only reason why people are not playing is 1) girlfriends 2) finals 3) real life troubles.

Personally I think for my style of playing FPS online HALO 2 is perfect.

I get bored of FPS in less than an hour so I jump on play one or two games and than repeat once or twice more.

No server and the match making makes all my games great. I never experenced such a easy to find good games online before.

Heck in Age of Kings 2 was lucky to get a good game after 30 minutes.

9  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / GMail Invite search on: December 15, 2004, 05:22:53 AM
Thanks for all the invites. If I told you all the time I spent trying to pick up invites I would be ashamed. Thanks for making gmail a reality, and a good distractor from my 50 page paper.

I am going nuts trying to find some gmail invite. Everyone I have come across has expired. Is it not possible to get an invite at the present time? Am I searching in vain? Are all those ebay invites expired also?

11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN Jak 3 review. 9.6 on: November 30, 2004, 05:46:27 PM
I think IGN reviews are way to forgiven and are pushed out the door many times just to be first.

12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Q] How did Halo 2 impact your life? on: November 16, 2004, 05:17:51 PM
I am a Residence Director at a college and I can tell you that I checked the class cuts for last week and it was a new school record. I went to EB Games and there must have been 50 people from my dorms ready toplay. We had two that completed the game before lunch. The funny thing is LIVE has deffintly affected campus.

XBox live was blocked and I got it unblock last month and now all the people that thought they were the top players in the world have seen reality. We have 2 players in the top 200, but everyone else is average at best, but the team games have been the only shinning point for them.

I have way tomuch work to really had an impact, but it was HUGE on campus, plus all the pistol criers who want the old HALO.

13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF Tactics Adv. OR Ogre Tactics? on: November 16, 2004, 05:12:16 PM
I vote for Fire Emblem. I think the game is a great strategy game. Personally I also say that you need to add Advanced Wars to your options.

14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's Wrong With You People??!?? on: November 10, 2004, 02:06:56 AM
I would say that the reason I play multi-player is for the desire to improve and to leave satisfied that I played my best.

Sound weird? I guess so, but to a large population of video game players the ability to play competitively and to improve as measured to the population of players is the enjoyment of gaming.

I know that in RTS games on computers you had to practice and play. Moreover, I enjoyed my years of playing RTS, but it was allot of practicing and rethinking. In FPS, it is all about playing with the idea of improving.

It's not a better way to play, but it to certain players it is an enjoyable way to play.

Call me competitive, but I love tournaments and the battle for top spot.

PS but it gives no excuse for people to be rude or a jerk!
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I Played HALO 2 for an Hour in Multiplayer (No Spoilers) on: November 06, 2004, 05:13:49 AM
A student came and gave away a secret that his roommate who works for Video Rental Company has a copy of HALO 2. In my excitement, I ran over and "bonded" with my residences. I was able to play 4v4 for an hour.

Prior to Playing Fears:
Increased Speed of Game:  The BUNGIE.NET video of multiplayer action scared me about the speed of the game. It seemed that a maybe it was too fast for consol. My fears were alleviated by the pace of the games I played so far. The speed was not much greater than HALO.

Dual Weilding too powerful:  The ability to dual wield is limited to only when you picking up a weapon can you choose to dual wield. You cannot switch to other weapons, without losing the ability to dual wield, you cannot throw grenades, and you cannot melee.

The Sword being to powerful: You can only one hit kill if you hit them in the face, and not the body. It was a viable weapon but you do not want to charge someone that is dual wielding. In my mind I, though people could run around taking damage and just cut people in two, and that is not going to happen.

No Body Health: The Shield Only option does not seem to make deaths happen faster in multiplayer. I was afraid that death would be a dime a dozen, but it appears that it is the opposite. The shield regenerates as fast as in HALO, but it seems to be the strength of the shield and the body health combined.

Surprises I was not ready for:

Grenades are less powerful. I loved the fact that grenades were actually useful in HALO and now than seem less effective.

Shotgun: OK it is much more powerful now. It seems the one shot kill range has increased by at least 50%.

Ghosts: It is more than double the firepower, and seems to be very good option to use.

Turrets: The player turrets on the various maps are extremely powerful and effective at long range. Was neat to get to one and just pick people off easily.

Maps: They are HUGE, and I like it!

HALO 2 seems that it has taken a lesson from Unreal Tournament and added several UT elements that make death match much more fun.

I am leaving with my wife on a three day weekend (ending on Monday) so I got a taste of the good that is waiting for me when I get home. I cannot wait.

16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / True Fantasy Live Online Cancelled on: June 03, 2004, 09:31:09 PM
I wonder about Fable alot. Remember how AWESOME Black & White was going to be?  If Lionhead does another one of those UGH.

Thank God that KOTOR was so good.

17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Malice released and no one cares on: June 03, 2004, 03:49:59 AM
The game must have been one of the first XBox games in development. Heck it was suppose to be an XBox release title. The disappointment of the missed release is than made into an over two-year mess of a delays and rearranging. What happens after they release this beast? Nothing no one cares.

The game has only one review (41%) on gametab review list. I cannot wait to hear the reasons and the talk about this nightmare of a game. Oddworld was a great game IMHO and Malice seems to be as my friend puts it in Ohio the worst platformer he has played.

Its funny how a "MUST HAVE" drops of the "MUST HAVE" list so fast.

Personally I never understood the hype. It looks pretty, but um I thought it would play like a snore fest. I hope I am wrong since I know of 5 friends pre-released purchased it.

19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Previews ruining your dinner? on: May 21, 2004, 01:08:30 PM
Its the same way with movies. They give enough that you can put the pieces together and know whats going to happen 90% of the time. I HATE THAT.

20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HALO 2 What is the chance of it being rated T? on: May 19, 2004, 06:08:19 PM
With all the nude,sex games coming out fighting to be M rated I think that we will finally see T = PG13 and M = R. Accually I think they should just use the movie ratings and the same standards.

-UConn
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HALO 2 What is the chance of it being rated T? on: May 16, 2004, 02:29:36 AM
I was the one that started the why is HALO rated M thread.

I am praying for all its worth that the game is T.

-UConn
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HALO 2 What is the chance of it being rated T? on: May 14, 2004, 04:36:59 PM
Long story why this matters, BUT it does. With Splinter Cell, and Call of Duty being rated T I would think there is a good chance of a T rating.

Many is this system messed up. Halo = Playboy Mansion = Single - Manhunt.
