Wow!  This game looks better and better all of the time.
2  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Forza Motorsport on: August 06, 2004, 04:33:10 PM
Wow, that is an awesome car list.  I'm looking forward to this as much or more than I looked forward to PGR2.

Oh, and as far as Cube 'must-haves', just head on over to http://www.gamerankings.com, go to Adv Search, and look for the Top 40 Gamecube games - should give you a pretty good cut of what's good for the Cube (and don't forget about Tales of Symphonia this week).


DUH!  I should have thought of that!  *smacks self on head*

While we're on this topic, what are considered the Gamecube must haves?

Right now I have:
Metroid Prime (which is quite good)
Super Smash Brothers (the best fighting game I've ever played)
F-Zero GX (an insanely hard, but fun fast-paced racing game)

Are there any other really good party games?  And what other Gamecube exclusives are really, really good?
5  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / PGR2 - 2nd Downloadable Pack: LONG BEACH, CALIF. on: July 13, 2004, 07:39:04 PM
To play this new stuff, you need to go to SINGLE PLAYER, and then TIME ATTACK.  You can do either a car or track time attack.  You can use them online too.

I like this new pack, but not as much as the first one (I'm still glad I got it though).  The new Ferrari feels really big (it's the second biggest Ferrari ever made), so that suits that car.  I think the coolest car that they put it the pack is the new really fast one (I can't remember the name for the life of me as I've only driven it once in my life smile).  It's so awesome because it's the only car that can compete with the TVR 12.  I think that pretty soon all of the top kudos scores around the world will be with this car.  Anyway, this car has quite a bit less power than the TVR 12, but it has much better maneovorability and braking than the TVR 12.  It's almost an open wheel car and it's a lot of fun.

I'm open to playing with you guys some night this week or this weekend.

I'm up for a game of PT this coming weekend.
7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many finished games in the first half of this year? on: July 09, 2004, 01:59:18 AM
I've finished 13, but most of those were PC games.  There are some games that can't really be beaten (like NFL 2k3 or Super Smash Brothers) so I just put in as many hours for that particular game as I spent money for: $30 for NFL 2k3, 30 hours of play for NFL 2k3.

I have Splinter Cell P:T, but I don't have Crimson Skies frown
9  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [CG] Crimson Skies - July 3rd on: July 02, 2004, 10:26:24 PM
8pm EST or later would be cool.  Maybe 9pm?

I'm not entirely sure if I'll be able to make it or not; it all depends on what the weather does that evening.
10  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [CG] Crimson Skies - July 3rd on: June 29, 2004, 10:00:37 PM
I should be available on the night of the 2nd, but I'll be busy on the 3rd frown
11  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [xbox] Friday Night (6/11): PGR2? TOCA? Crimson Skies? on: June 12, 2004, 02:21:26 PM
Well, I guess no one replied to this one.  How about tonight (Saturday night) starting at like 9pm EST.  Can anyone do that?  I would love to play more of the Paris booster pack with you guys.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN Writing? on: June 03, 2004, 01:18:05 AM
I agree about the FSW review in particular.  I mean the guy was reviewing it as a first person shooter and not as a realistic tactical strategy game, which is really what it is.

I was really surprised to see how highly he reviewed it.  I don't want to brag here, but I could review a game better than that, even if my scores didn't really correspond to my review extremely well.
13  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Project Gotham Racing 2 Time Trial #2: BMW M3 CSL on: May 28, 2004, 09:46:24 PM
Alright, I just set the fastest time.  That was alot of fun smile  I got a mid 1:06 time.

And Driver, today I beat EVERY SINGLE ONE of your hot lap times for the new cars biggrin  I'm pretty proud of that smile
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Project Gotham Racing 2 Download Now Available on: May 21, 2004, 06:15:04 PM
I think it's absolutely worth the download.  Maybe I like it just because it's new.  All I know is that I spent almost 2 hours yesterday just playing around with the new cars and tracks and I had to actually force myself to put down the controler.  Admittedly, not everyone is gonna think that the added content is worth the money.  In my opinion, it's like paying a small price for a small expansion pack.

I'm glad I payed the extra money and I'm sure I'll be using the cars and the new tracks quite a bit, especially in multiplayer.
15  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Project Gotham Racing 2 Time Trial #2: BMW M3 CSL on: May 20, 2004, 06:17:23 PM
Unfortunately, I'll be busy every night this weekend except for Sunday night frown  I'll check in with you guys when I get a chance though.  Hopefully we can get a game together either Sunday night or some other night this up comming week.

I've raced every car and every track so far.  This is really a great update, I'm really impressed with it.  The Paris tracks are kind of unique, but kinda more of the same.  However, PGR2 is my favorite console racing game ever, so more of the same with a twist is perfectly ok with me.  It's cool because some of the new tracks are relatively straight forward (pun intended) with some long straightaways linked with fast chicanes or tricky hair-pins.  The other type of track has a combination of medium speed to blistering fast corners.  One of the tracks is great because it has a set of tight turns, but the track is a mile wide (I'm exagerating here smile).  It's kind of like some of turns in Moscow: it's so wide and twisty that there are 50 different ways to go through the corner.

The new cars are quite cool too.  The only car that I don't like is the Ferrari 365--it just can't handle any latteral G's whatsoever; but at the same time, it has some really good powersliding, so it can be really fast, you just have to approach the turns totally differently.  It's cool because I could really tell the difference between the modern cars which have the better tires as compared to the older cars with the narrower tires: the new cars just corner alot better, though they're not necessarily more agile through low speed corners.  The funnest car, IMHO, is the classic Porsche 356.  It can't go above 100 mph, but it's a blast to drive in the twisties--you never have to brake, just let off the gas and let the back end slide.  Absolutely fantastic car, even if it is by far the slowest of the bunch.  The BMW 645Ci is a bit disappointing.  It is a great all around car, it just isn't very fast.  It doesn't really power slide and it doesn't accelerate outrageously fast, but it is stable in the corners and has good braking.  On the other hand, that special BMW M3 is a rocket; it's one of the fastest cars in this update, if driven correctly.  It's amazingly maneuverable and has some great get up and go.  My personal favorite car so far is the new Corvette C6.  This car is insanely fast and stable.  It fits my driving style just perfectly and I can get it to do pretty much anything I want it to.  The way I drive, this car is the second fastest car of the bunch.  In fact, it even outperforms all the cars in the  'Track Specials' category.  My least favorite car is the TVR Cerbera Speed 12.  This car is BY FAR the fastest car in the group, but it has no personality whatsoever.  It may be really, really fast, but I just don't enjoy driving it at all.  I'm still really glad they included it though, as now I can actually compete with the fastest times out there.

Anyway, I've had alot of fun with this so far and i hope to see some of you online in the next week or so.

As Devil mentioned, the new M3 is available, but the rest of the new downloadable content is not available yet.

I had a blast playing tonight and I even managed to win at the Nurburgring smile  I'm really looking forward to playing with you guys more once this new content comes out.  This has really been alot of fun.
17  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Project Gotham Racing 2 Time Trial: MINI COOPER on: May 20, 2004, 03:48:16 AM
I can't let you beat me Devil slywink  I'll have to try and beat your time.

Looks like it IS available now.
19  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Project Gotham Racing 2 Time Trial #2: BMW M3 CSL on: May 19, 2004, 11:26:22 PM
Ok, that must be the problem.  I'll try again tommorow.  At least we know it's coming, and soon smile
20  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Project Gotham Racing 2 Time Trial #2: BMW M3 CSL on: May 19, 2004, 10:39:56 PM
I can not for the life of me get the downloadable content.  Whenever I look try to check for new content, the game says that there's nothing new to download.  Have you guys had any problems with this, or is this download not available yet?
21  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Colin McRae 04 Time Challenge: Stage 2: FINLAND S4 on: May 19, 2004, 05:14:13 PM
Well, I raced Finland Stage 3 today and I beat your time, Driver, by about 35 seconds biggrin  I got something like a 4:49 in the Citrogen.

I'll have to try Stage 4 a bit later.
