I loved Max Payne 1 & 2.  I'm not excited about a new developer though.  I'm cautiously optimistic.

The developer was responsible for "Bully" which was one of the better GTA clones out there.  That is at least cause for some hope.

My plan is to restrict myself to lying only about little things like Santa Claus and be truthful about big things like death and sex, though I'd try to restrict the details to the level of maturity my child(ren) show.

What about Santa Claus having sex?

In good news though, season 1 is on Hulu now!  If you haven't seen Stargate SG-1 it is well worth checking out.

Series 9 and 10 were terrible compared to the first 8. They had to basically 'invent' an entirely new bad guy because they've fully solved everything at the end of 8, and it showed.

But they didn't.  They had defeated system lords before and still had other gould to take out.  The fact that Baal was around for the last two season shows that they still had gould they could have fought against.   I have no idea why they created the Ori but they didn't have to.  Hell even Anubis could have been around because they found a clone of him in one of the crappy episodes (I found it - Prototype from season 9).

This is still fresh in my mind since I just finished so I am probably beating a dead horse.  We all know that seasons 9 and 10 sucked.

Anyone going to pick it up?  I am torn.  I want to but I know that I don't really have the game time to actually play it.

2930  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: MacGyver the Movie on: March 18, 2009, 09:06:32 PM
Whatever the reason, I can say after watching seasons 9 and 10 that the show went directly into the crapper.  Those seasons were painfully bad.  They made me glad I returned the complete series I bought at Christmas from Amazon.

Besides, if you're using an established franchise like McGyver and relaunching it with a movie, you probably don't want a 59-year-old marginally known star who is appearing in a Sci-Fi original movie to be your leading man.  Just a thought.

It is confusing to call the McGyver franchise established but the person who played McGyver (in fact the only person to play him) marginally known.  If McGyver is established then so is Richard Dean Anderson who is McGyver. 
2932  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: MacGyver the Movie on: March 18, 2009, 06:00:29 PM
Your getting old.  Stargate SG-1 started in 1997!  That is a lot of years...and pounds on Mr. Anderson.  I watched "Ark of Truth" (2008) awhile ago and you could really see how much larger he was. 

2933  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: MacGyver the Movie on: March 18, 2009, 04:20:33 PM
I am not going to say I am going to look as good or will but if you are trying to make a big budget hollywood blockbuster you probably wouldn't pick him as the leading man. 
2934  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 screen has gone black on: March 18, 2009, 02:06:59 PM
I was going to recommend the same thing.  When I got my unit back from "repair" last time it RRoDed I accidentally flipped that switch.  I was fuming for a few minutes that they sent me a broken unit!  Then I figured out the problem was with the user (like it often is!)

seriously though, Richard Dean Anderson is still in good enough shape to reprise his role, so why not use him?

have you seen him recently?  Much like Dan Akroid (think the difference between Blues Brothers and recent stuff) RDA has put on a lot of weight and looks a lot different.  I don't think people would connect with his character (and by connect I mean want to screw)

I would say look over the game library.  If there are 5-6 games you want to play then it is worth it.  There doesn't seem to be a huge number of new titles so whether it is worth it depends on if you want to play what you can see now.

Must have titles would depend a lot on what kind of games you like.  Personally I have spent the most time in Hot Shots Golf (1&2), and Jean D'Arc but I don't know if you like those kinds of games.
2944  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Resistance: Retribution on: March 11, 2009, 08:26:42 PM
I am not willing to pre-order but IGN certainly seemed to love it as well!

Quote
So, yeah -- I like Resistance: Retribution. A lot. I think it's probably one of the most complete packages ever to come to the PSP. It has an engaging storyline, a likeable main character, tons of reasons to play it again, and one of the greatest multiplayer outings we've ever seen on this system. I think the setup might tread a little bit too closely to its Syphon Filter roots and I wish the gameplay was just a bit more challenging as a standalone product, but those minor gripes shouldn't keep anyone from playing this excellent game.

*why do game companies just love ":"? 

Anyway Gametrailers has a review up of the soon to be released Resistance: Retribution.  It looks pretty good.  I was a lot more interested when I saw it was from the same folks who did Logan's Shadow.  I believe there was a demo for this - did anyone here try it?  Any impressions.

This comes out next week and I think I will put it at the top of my Gamefly queue.  It has been a long time since my PSP has been used.

you can get a free from MS too.

The form that I downloaded from MS asked for the serial numbers for my new elite and my old unit.  Since I bought just at 120 GB drive off Ebay I don't have two serial numbers to put in the form.  Is there another form I should be looking for?

2950  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GT Community 360 transfer cable checkout on: March 04, 2009, 04:42:26 PM
I am going to collect any 360 transfer cables folks have and would like to donate to GT.  Those cables can be requested by any member to borrow and use.  To keep it simple for everyone I think it would be best if people sent the cables back to me when they are done.  This way I will hopefully always have a cable or two to send to anyone who needs one and people won't have to worry about keeping track of the cables themselves.  You request it, I send it to you, you use, you send back to me, you can forget about it.  

So if you have a transfer cable you are not using anymore and would like to donate it to GT to share with other members PM me.  I will send you my address and you can send the cable to me.

If you are a member who needs a transfer cable PM me and I can get your address so I can send you one (this is after I actually get some! smile )

If you have any suggestions about ways to improve the system post here or PM me.  I have never done anything like this so I am sure there is room for improvement!


Thank you all for helping to help out others in the community!  
2951  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone have a 360 transfer cable I could borrow? on: March 04, 2009, 02:29:00 PM
Alright I have the ok so I will post something "official" in another thread

Anyone who has a cable and wants to let it be shared by the GT community can PM me and I will send you my address.  Keep in mind, I can't promise people will return the cables so if you donate it please don't expect it back! (although you can always borrow another one smile )



2952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone have a 360 transfer cable I could borrow? on: March 03, 2009, 10:24:24 PM
So I bought my larger hard drive off ebay and I wasn't too worried about getting my stuff off the old one - until I realized that I will have to replay that boring long section on the Citadel of Mass Effect again if I don't get it off the old box!  That would be too much.  I just wouldn't ever play it again.

So I wondered if anyone here had upgraded, gotten a transfer cable and software, and was done.  I would pay shipping if I could just borrow it for a quick copy!

PM me if you happen to have one.

Pretty sure #1 is just the way Microsoft wants it. People have been asking for this since day 1 of the NXE.

I was afraid of that.  It is just annoying.  I can figure it out but when my mother-in-law wants to use the 360 to play music she doesn't need that kind of crap. 

Maybe I will work with my Harmony remote to send the correct button pushes to get to the music automatically.

I have been using PearBudget for the last month (30 day free trial) and I couldn't be happier.  I will be paying the $3 a month for it.
 
This is just for budgeting though.  It has no interface to your bank accounts etc.

It is a 30 day free trial though so you really can't lose. 

2957  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 question - about changing startup defaults on: March 02, 2009, 09:51:27 PM
I would like to change two things and I wondered if it was possible

1. I don't want it to start with the "spotlight" I would prefer it to just be at "My Xbox" when starting.  I don't see that as an option - any ideas?

2. While it is fun to see who is on line I really don't need popups when I am watching a DVD or even in a game.  Can I disable those notifications?

Thanks,

Quote from: rittchard on March 02, 2009, 09:28:51 PM

I guess I am still wondering if the combat or levelling/classes gain much more depth later?  Are there any choices to make in that arena?  Does combat become more strategic at any point?

I am a bit farther than you and I played DQ8.  My answer is "No".  Combat and leveling will not get more depth later.  It is very old school so it will continue as it has. 

You can do some fun things like capture monsters and use them to fight - and I bet fight in an arena type deal.  There is also a casino where you can play some mini games.

So if that doesn't sound good I wouldn't stick with it much longer.   I would stick with it until the "event"  Believe me you will know.  If you are not hooked after that I would dump it.  There are just too many great games to bother playing one you don't find fun.


2959  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone tried to upgrade their 360 HD themselves? on: March 02, 2009, 02:17:59 PM
I was going to do it but this weekend on ebay I found a 120 GB drive for $80.  $30 more than if I did it myself but I shouldn't have any worries about being banned or having to hex edit the partitions myself.

I think the market for separate 120 GB drives has died since MS has lowered their prices so there are a lot of cheap drives around.
