8881  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who doesn't care about Oblivion? on: November 14, 2005, 05:27:44 PM
Quote from: "TheMissingLink"
I was burned by Morrowind and at this point, I don't care for Oblivion.  I understand the mentality of people who enjoy that sort of game, though, and I'll most likely pick it up sometime (because I'm a schmuck).

Pretty much exactly me.  Open ended games suck for me, cause I am constantly attracted by the next new shiny.  I absolutely hated Morrowind.

Stupid bullshit bundles again with stupid bullshit games.

one of those bundles has precisely the games I want... I just don't want the bullshit universal remote (or second controller for that matter)

Ditto.  Might still be worth it though... I have a preorder at Gamespot, but its a 2nd shipment SKU and I'm going to be out of town on Thanksgiving weekend.  Sucky.

I cant get to OO either.... Whats this BC that I keep seeing people mention?


The Rebel Alliance to OO's Empire.

This site confuses me.  Is it just a place where there is no moderation so we can go and swear and act like 14 year-olds?*  Was spawned by the great Battle of F*cktard Hill?

* Not that I have a problem with it.  I like to vent my inner adolescent occasionally, too.  But not on a daily basis.

Not quite.  There's moderation, it's just very hands off.  We're there to take care of the big time problems, but not to tell our members what appropriate behavior is.  Everyone is an adult, and can decide for themselves how to act.

I appreciate the help from everyone.  I don't really understand the difference between LCD and DLP.  Can someone give me a user-friendly answer to this.  Will I be able to notice a difference in picture quality between the two?    


They're about the same.  At the price range you're looking at, DLP will have better black levels than LCD, but some folks have problems with DLP TVs cause they can actually SEE the spinning color wheel.  Go take a look at a DLP and if you see the wheel, get an LCD.

Also, when you do buy, has great prices and service.

Toshiba and Samsung are solid choices.

You know... I can't think of anything TRULY awful I played this gen.  I think my biggest disappointment was Oni, but it wasn't *that* bad.  Just not as good as I was hoping.

The ESPN/NFL2Kx series has disappointed me every year, but it hasn't been terrible.  I think NCAA College Football 2004 was also a disappointment, as was ESPN NHL2K4.

Quote from: "GatorFavre"
I like sim football so I like Madden.  They really need to ditch the passing cone first though.   You know, it was fun playing ESPN NFL 2k5, especially when the quarterback could run and pick up 3rd and long because I was playing pass defense.  That was great!  Oh yeah, I loved how if you were playing man on man with even a decent wide receiver, he could burn you on a post 10 times out of 10.  The d-line glitch was also one of my favorite things to encounter online.  At least they didnt know if I was going to run or pass before I even snapped the ball.  Oh well.  Both games have issues, dont come into a Madden thread and start ripping on it.  Just doesnt make a lot of sense to me at all.

Well said.  Both games are awesome at some things, and total crap at others.  Part of the reason I prefer Madden is that at least their fans don't feel the need to chime into every thread about how NFL2K was "better in all ways."

I'm gonna check out the PS2 version, as NHL 2006 has been slightly inconsistent for me, and the NHL2K6 franchise is too borked for me to take it seriously.

I'm so NOT looking forward to dicking around with memory cards though.

8902  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / NHL 2k6 - The Xbox Live Mini-League on: September 13, 2005, 03:43:08 PM
I went to EB last night and picked up 2006 (EA) because I really fear the bugs in 2K6 after last year.  There have been a lot of reported bugs, and I know a few of them would drive me pretty up the wall.

I fired up some sliders I got from OpSports and actually find that I like the game quite a lot.  Definitely better than last year's, and well worth the $30.

Bug List for 2K6:

Contact the 3 credit agencies and have them flag your accounts.

You actually need to only contact one, and they'll hit the other two for you... I think.  They'll put a credit hold on, where if anyone applies for credit in your name, the creditor has to contact you at a number you specify before they can issue the credit.

Also, this should serve as a cautionary tale on why we should NOT carry our SS cards in our wallets.

Well... I had a ton of fun with NHL2K5 with my buddies coming over. Of course at some point the game just generated to who could get to the stick side exploit sooner, resulting in scores of 15-12 or something... but that was still fun smile

Yes, FH is ultra-social. As in she drags me out to parties and events now as much as possible, and this will only increase once she's working for a law firm full time. Whee. biggrin

At least you get to wear nice suits or even tuxes to those law firm socials. God do I love formal wear, and before anyone says anything-thats as manly as it gets.

There is nothing worse than formal wear.  Nothing.  Well... maybe Ikea.  But other than that, nothing.

As far as the original topic, Nancy is quite social, but no moreso than I.  She's fantastic with strangers, but doesn't tend to develop relationships as frequently as I do.  However, at a company function or dinner event, she's fuckin fantastic.  I truly believe I wouldn't be where I am today career-wise if  she hadn't been my date to numerous events.

Why did they have to mess around with 2k5's greatness?  If the review was true and all (kind of interested to see what they gave 2k5 score-wise to compare), why ruin a GREAT game of hockey?  Grr.

I wouldn't call 2K5 great, but it was certainly very good.  Better than EA's crap.

The two main flaws in 2K5 was the abhorently slow stick side of the goalie (I could score there at will) and the horrendously buggy and bad franchise mode, which seems to be a consistent feature in ESPN titles.

I did enjoy 2K5 a LOT until I ran into those issues though, and it was better than the garbage that was NHL 2005.

8913  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / NHL 2k6 - The Xbox Live Mini-League on: August 30, 2005, 05:07:54 PM
ESPN NHL2K4 was also pretty asstacular, if I recall.

I hate that the Hockey franchises are never consistently good.  At least in football you know what to expect.

That's the problem with your thinking.  Graphics are fair less subjective than gameplay.

This year's Madden has some nice touches.  The texture of the field is nice, the weather effects are amazing, and the sky looks great.

The players look like ass though.  Unadulterated ass.  They will continue to look that way until they change the engine.

I hope the 360 looks better, cause despite looking like crap, Madden is a hell of a lot of fun to play.

I think it is worse in single player.  At least a human opponent will sometimes try to work around it.  But the computer plays like there is no glitch.  It completely ruins the single player for me.  Lucily I really don't care about single player that much.

I just don't pay attention to it, and it hasn't affected me at all in my franchise.  I rarely run coaches cam on Defense anyway, and I didn't even notice that there were icons when I did.  Sometimes it's good not to pay attention smile


How do you see what your assignment on defense is without coach cam, or assign a defender to double cover someone?  

Just curious.

I'm fairly useless on defense, so I just play a lineman and rush.  I do use coach cam for double coverage, but that's it.  And I'm almost never looking at the backfield when I do use coach cam... just the receivers.
