321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: question regarding Titan Quest on: December 09, 2006, 10:28:18 PM
ah well, that sucks, but at least it's playable. Now if they just work out the kinks in NWN2, i'll dive into that one.

Thanks for the info smile
322  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / question regarding Titan Quest on: December 09, 2006, 09:35:04 PM
so, I finally got around to playing Titan Quest, and it's pretty cool, but I'm getting pretty questionable performance. I'm running an AMD dual core 4200, a 7900gt card, 2 gigs of ram and a Creative X-fi for sound.

The problem is stuttering. I set everything at medium, with Vertical Sync set on(otherwise I get some weird ghosting on my LCD). I installed the dual core optimizer that AMD put out, and that helps a little, but I still get random slowdowns and stuttering. It's definitely playable, but kinda aggravating, especially because I feel that my system should be able to handle it with everything close to max.

Anyone have anything similar happen or have any ideas?

Prince of Darkness is a really good one, oftentimes overlooked. The original Texas Chainsaw is always fun, and the remake of that one is cool too. Maybe Last House on the Left? And I always thought Children of the Corn was freaky

my wife wife and I use different Windows user profiles. We draw from the same files, but our libraries in Itunes are different. Makes it much easier to manage.

wow, i came here looking to post the exact same question. This place is awesome, thanks guys

Hey, if i spec out some upgrades and post them, you think you folks could see if they are decent?
326  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Behold the first great artist of the 21st century.... on: July 21, 2006, 05:37:27 AM
are any of them for sale? I like Pink Champagne quite a bit
327  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Get this....Little Man breaks some records! on: July 20, 2006, 02:11:36 AM
man, I dig lowbrow comedies if they are even moderately witty (hell, Dodgeball is a favorite of mine). Nothing about Little Man strikes me as even vaguely amusing. It looks like one of those fake trailers that pops up sometimes, only to turn out to be a PSA (like the cell phone ones you see in theaters somtimes), or a commercial (Tiny House comes to mind).

Here's a thought, something that honestly gets proven to me every single day...

Think of how stupid the average person is. How ignorant or self centered, small minded or easily amused they seem. By definition, half of all people are even more so.
328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lamenting on the past - Favorite RPG of all time on: July 18, 2006, 06:08:27 AM
Phantasie II - my first intro to role playing

Wizards Crown - a real gem. Crazy tough, but worth it if you went forwards with it.

Faery Tale Adventure - not true RP, but memorable to me nonetheless.

I remember really liking Legacy of the Ancients as well....


Believe it or not, i've never played an Ultima game
329  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone play Rise of the Kasai? [PS2] on: July 11, 2006, 02:19:05 AM
for what it's worth, if you haven't played the first game (Mark of Kri), it was one of the finest games ever made and RotK is pale in comparison.
330  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Superman Returns! on: June 30, 2006, 03:14:12 AM
you can tell this was made by a fan, for the fans...my buddy and I counted no less than 9 comic covers done as scenes in the film. It was amazing.

I'm kind of floored but the criticism it's receiving in the media. It really just proves that anyone can criticize anything and it doesn't mean dookie...
331  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Scientology is insane. Video proof. on: June 27, 2006, 01:24:21 PM
i live in Clearwater, the spiritual center of this insanity, and see proof of this nonsense every single day. And yeah, that's pretty much what these folks are like...
332  Gaming / Analog Gaming / What would make the perfect game store? (need ideas) on: June 06, 2006, 02:48:55 PM
my biggest reason for avoiding gamestop/EB is pushy salespeople.

I expect to be acknowledged when I walk in the door, but past that just make yourself available for questions. I despise getting locked into a situation where I have to be a rude prick in order to disengage from them or to say no to the 50 million thing some drone is trying to sell me. The best salepeople are like the best waiters - available, yet invisible.

That being said, selectively hire and pay well. Hit other stores in the area and see what they are doing and how their staff is. If you find someone that impresses the shit out of you, try to lure them away to work at your store. Always take care of regulars, and by that i mean the ones that actually spend coin, not the hang-arounds that loiter at the counter.
333  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worst Movie of All time candidate on: February 21, 2006, 05:43:09 PM
i'm surprised to see some of these flicks on the WORST movie list. Bad maybe, but most were still moderately redeeming in at least a small way

and with that I present......


The Master of Disguise, starring Dana Carvey


I dare you to still through the whole thing....
334  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What are some good fantasy movies? on: February 10, 2006, 06:15:03 AM
Would Time Bandits qualify?

i dig on Jason and the Argonauts too
335  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Remember gun-kata? on: January 17, 2006, 08:17:53 AM
wasn't that a british tv show or miniseries or something? I saw one episode and it was pretty good (all i remember was it was british and had vampires)
336  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Good hostage movies? on: December 29, 2005, 04:22:08 PM
Would Phonebooth qualify? I kinda dug that one...
337  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I'm a little stuck on Quake 4, need tiny spoiler... on: December 22, 2005, 03:05:46 AM
I ran behind a wall or beam or something and jumped out periodically to lob grenades at him, worked like a charm
338  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Icewind Dale novels.........where have i been? on: December 18, 2005, 08:35:46 AM
All good books, although some shine more than others. Incidentally, Bob is a really nice guy...I worked for Waldenbooks right out of high-school, and he came in once every 8 months or so for a signing. Used to send us really neat stuff he got from his publisher as well, cool posters and advance copies and whatnot
339  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 worth getting if you don't have??? on: November 23, 2005, 03:27:59 AM
In my opinion, yes....I would put it visually above Xbox games like SC:Chaos Theory or Rebel Commando, which i personally thought looked fantastic considering the age of the system. Particles and lighting are much improved and the little touches stand out alot. No real jaggies either, which is cool. I have mine plugged in through composite cables and I'm really happy with it.

I had the same fears, regarding missing out visually due to not owning an HD set, but for me it's been proven a non issue. I really can't imaging spending more than 600 or so on a television.

and on a side note, for some reason Need for Speed Most Wanted is my favorite game, eclipsing even PGR3 and Perfect Dark Zero...kind of surprised me
340  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 worth getting if you don't have??? on: November 22, 2005, 08:01:50 PM
I have a regular 32"tv and it's looks fantastic...i'm sure HDTV is impressive, but i'm pretty happy with what I have
