1641  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ea = 15 games on Live this year. on: May 11, 2004, 11:50:35 AM
Damn it sure is cold around here...almost like hell froze over.
1642  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Forum Titles on: May 07, 2004, 02:56:15 PM
There has to be something between 100-3000.  And why should the custom tag be set at 3000 anyway...this isn't GG with a broad selection of PC hardware, PC software, console and EBG to spread posts out.  I have a feeling it would take a lot longer to hit 3000 here than over there.

I also like fanatic...maybe also deity, servant (instead of newbie or maybe just for the mods smile) or console geek.
1643  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Does Rob Smith's New Role as EIC Ruin XBOX Magazine ? on: May 07, 2004, 02:52:26 PM
That is the main reason I read XBN (Xbox Nation) though they have gone a little downhill lately too.  They used to have long intelligent multipage reviews, excellent interviews and the mag used to have more words than pictures.  I only read OXM now because I got the free sub to it and for the pretty screenshots...not a lot of content in it anymore.
1644  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Meijer - 25% off all videogame accessories on: May 07, 2004, 12:37:23 PM

1645  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / $10 off $75+ at on: May 07, 2004, 12:33:13 PM

Direct link to add the coupon to your cart.  Should be non referral and was tested this morning.  Not bad to save a little on a system purchase like a GBA or a handful of newer games.  This is good for all and returning.

Direct link to add $10 off $150 for new customers only here:  Not sure why you would use this one unless they expire the above one early.

Link for $5 off $50 in the media/games stores:
1646  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / what will sell the Xbox2? on: May 07, 2004, 03:03:41 AM
I have a feeling that built in wireless will be standard on all of the next gen consoles...since MS already has a wireless b/g adapter out it wouldn't be that hard to add it to the XBox 2.  I would love to have the ability to share files with my computers on my network too...and I think it's a good chance as well with Microsoft pushing their multimedia center so hard.  I can even see the XBox 2 running a version of XP media center like the Dreamcast had with Windows CE.
1647  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / EricB for president! on: May 07, 2004, 02:58:44 AM
I'll try to keep them coming.  I used to run a deal based website a couple years ago (about the time the big ones started and anandtech was really taking off) so I still have tons of links to everywhere under the sun for deals.  I'm also in charge of finding the best prices at my company so I'm looking anyway  Cool

Quote from: "Thin_J"
Just wanted to put in that you guys are doing an awesome job fixing things and figuring out what's best to do for everybody.

The quick responses so far have been pretty impressive.

Good stuff guys. Seriously.

I would like to second this as well.  I guess I'm so used to anything taking weeks to fix or do at the GG forums that the multiple daily changes here still surprise me.
1649  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Forum Titles on: May 06, 2004, 08:39:09 PM
Not if I get there first  :lol:

I can't think of many titles now...hmmmm how about:

Old School Master
Console Gold Regular
uh...console gold veteran, console gold all star

Ok, I'm out of ideas right now...been a very long day so far.
1650  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Devil May Cry 3!!! on: May 06, 2004, 08:35:15 PM
As the current lead post padder I would like to throw in my $.02 as well.  I actually lucked out and managed to return the suck that was the Matrix.  BTW, Target has the PC version on clearance for like $10 if anyone wants to find out how bad it truly was.  I have to agree that if DMC2 didn't have the name it would have been a low C adventure that faded into nothingness long ago...but it disappointed so many people.  

So flock off DMC2 and Matrix  :twisted:
1651  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Devil May Cry 3!!! on: May 06, 2004, 04:16:19 PM
Yep, PSM had the article...around 5 pages with the screenshots.  Some highlights from the articles:

Some levels have multiple bosses, some have none
Your character will be customized to a point by how you upgrade...sword master, gunslinger, etc
You will have the ability to assume demon form at some point
Newer engine, better AI, more story driven, more backstory
Possible love interest/playable female character

After reading this I actually have some interest in it again.  I'm still going to wait for a bunch of reviews but I can eventually convince myself this is the true sequel and that DMC2 never happened.
1652  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Backing up Xbox Data on: May 06, 2004, 04:11:17 PM
Yes, USB keys are cheap.  I actually bought a Dell 128MB USB key for under $40...very handy and it stays on my keychain all of the time.

The Lik-Sang site has the Mega X-Key for $35 US.  You can read a review of it here:

Any PSP handheld info would be great.  Besides my PSP site is a little bare right now and I need some good information to post up :lol:

Also any info on:

OEM wireless controllers from Sony or Microsoft
The Phantom console (biggrin)
Any RPG info on any console or handheld
Gran Turismo 4
1655  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Forum Thoughts Sought on: May 06, 2004, 01:05:14 PM
Yeah, I do like everything combined.  It makes the general console gaming area look much more populated and should get it some more attention.

Also, any way to have the goto page links at the top as well as the bottom?
1656  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GC - Animal Crossing 2 on: May 06, 2004, 01:03:04 PM
That is really too bad...I was looking for an excuse to hook the GC back up again.  I don't think I'll be getting all three consoles next generation (plus the PSP) and Nintendo is at the bottom of the list so I may never get to play it.

1661  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KoTOR 2 to be announced today on: May 05, 2004, 08:46:20 PM
I would almost rather not know about it...because now I know I have to wait 9 more months before I'll be playing it (hopefully only 9).  And what's up with coming out in Feb...doesn't anyone shoot for the holiday season anymore?  Especially with the new XBox (and the rumors it's not backwards compatible) also coming out in 2005.
1662  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Forum Thoughts Sought on: May 05, 2004, 08:44:06 PM
2 hours?  Must be my firefox storing my name/password then because I haven't had to log in for the past couple days now.

I like the way the topics are setup now but I wonder if it's overkill...and it is a pain to go through multiple topics for multi-platform games.  I almost wonder if it wouldn't be easier to have them broken into classic system, current system, handheld system and upcoming systems instead of having them broken down into Sony, Microsoft, etc.

It would also be nice if the FAQ was updated with some board specific information instead of the generic phpBB sections.  Things like is it ok to post prices or how many posts gets you upgraded past newbie, future tags, etc.
1663  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GC - Animal Crossing 2 on: May 05, 2004, 08:36:49 PM

1666  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Just played Thief: Deadly Shadows on: May 05, 2004, 12:36:53 PM
Sounds good but I think I'm going to have to go with the PC version on this one...if nothing else then just for the much higher resolution (since I don't have HDTV).

How is the lockpicking working though...mouse only or mouse/keyboard combo?

Also, any ideas yet on the AI of the guards and other NPCs?
1667  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Devil May Cry 3!!! on: May 05, 2004, 12:31:31 PM
I'm a little worried about the first one and disliked the second.  If they can go back to the roots (and difficulty) of the first while adding new features and graphical upgrades then I'm in.  There is a big write up on it this month in PSM too (or was it the official PS magazine?).
1668  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / This Format isn't helpful for Multi-platform games on: May 05, 2004, 12:27:50 PM
If you do add genre forums as well then I'll second the one for sports related titles.  I think I'm one of the few that has zero interest in them and would love for them to be filtered out from my browsing  :lol:

I wouldn't mind seeing an "other" section though.  Something to cover hardware and systems like the neo-geo, phantom (lol, I know), Nokia handheld, etc instead of lumping it all in the general section.

1678  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / EBGames trade in deal this month - $10 extra per 3 games on: May 04, 2004, 01:03:19 PM
The "deal" runs May 2nd - 29th.  So it's basically an extra ten dollars credit for every three games traded in...but there are no restrictions on types of games.  These are always good times to clear out the ancient sports titles they never normally take and no one else wants.

"Games trade-in must be 3 different titles. Boxes and instructions are required. Cannot be combined with any other offer or discount. Some customers may be responsible for sales tax. Not valid at Full games only; no demo discs accepted. Offer valid from May 2, 2004 through May 29, 2004. See slaes associates for complte details."
1679  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / what will sell the Xbox2? on: May 04, 2004, 12:57:15 PM
I don't benefit of no HD and no backwards compatibility would be that it could be much smaller and quieter.  I think a major complaint in the beginning anyway was the size and weight of the box.  

I don't see it being a viable media center though without a hard else can you have something like TiVo without a LOT of space available...much less general multimedia and downloading.  Flash memory is going to be too expensive compared to hard drives a year from now...I mean I can go out and buy 7200rpm 80GB drives for less than $80 now.  But I'm still paying $40 for an 128MB compact flash.
