8201  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: September 11, 2008, 06:13:07 PM
Thank you, kind sir.   icon_biggrin

by the way, do you get 30 days free with Warhammer like you do with all other MMORPG's?  The reason I ask is that the wording on the info for the head start program for preorders seems to say otherwise, although that could just be a case of bad writing.
8202  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: September 11, 2008, 05:57:27 PM
Bought the preorder box at Best Buy during lunch this afternoon.  Entered my preorder key as instructed and headed over to fileplanet to download the beta client...

...682 minutes????

good lord.

Guess I'll see you folks around thanksgiving.

Doesn't bug me at all. Two three years down the line I have no problem with calling and asking them to reset my installs.

Glad you don't mind taking the time 2 years from now to find the correct number, sit on hold for god knows how long, try to interpret whatever foreign accent the outsourced support person uses into English, then calling back 10 minutes later when they inevitably screw it up.

But hey, I do the same thing for my T.V., my sofa, any dvd's I purchase....


...wait...no I don't.

 Tongue

is this a deal breaker for me?  probably not.  It is, however, annoying and I won't pretend that it doesn't bother me somewhat.  Especially after the 10 minutes it took me to purchase Star Rangers 2 Complete off Impulse this past weekend, secure in the knowledge that I actually own it from this point forward without having to jump through any hoops if I decide I want to install it on more than 3 computers in the next 2 years (not an uncommon incident for most folks around these parts).

I am seriously tempted by this one.  Haven't decided whether or not to bite.

I should get it by friday at the latest, and I'll play it all day with impressions unless there is a friday Halo fight night happening. 


i'd be interested if it allows for extensive mech customization.  let me know what you think of it.

Last night I had a great moment in the creature phase while trying to charm another species into becoming an ally.  In the middle of the mini-game, they all just started running.  Then I heard this weird sound and suddenly some of them were just sucked up into the air.  Looking up, I saw this



It was Baelthazar's Spelljammer ship.  Quite cool, if I may say so.   icon_biggrin

Argh, now I'm feeling buyer's remorse.  I'm only at the beginning of the Civ phase, but the overwhelming negativity I'm seeing about this game on niche sites like ours is just sucking all the joy out of the game for me.   icon_frown

Not if you have to work Sundays like I do. EB is closed by the time I get out of work.

I gotta admit, I'm a little annoyed by the DRM they're using.  However, I always enjoy the opportunity to use the word "Draconian" in a sentence, so it's not a total loss.

I actually enjoyed the "stealth scud" game.  Basically, it was rocket slayer with constant camo.  i ended up just riding the "man cannon" back and forth between the two platforms, firing like a madmen in mid air in a desperate attempt to catch anyone else using that rapid express system.

i also enjoyed teggy's strategy of waiting until i was running like hell from kato and then popping up to blast my ass with whatever utensil he had handy.  i believe he actually killed me with a spork at one point....
8219  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Seinfeld, Gates, churros and shoes. on: September 08, 2008, 02:19:16 PM
As a piece of comedy, I thought it was pretty funny.  As a commercial, I'm not sure what they were trying to say.  My guess is it's like the Seinfeld show all those years ago:  it's about nothing.

Damnit, try this http://www.spore.com/view/profile/mirage775

I think their servers may be down.  I've had this error for everyone since last night.

i'll let my guns answer that tonight....punk

In order to do that, don't you at least have to get a shot off before I kill you?  Perhaps you should find something else to speak for you.  You know, something that actually has a chance to utter a sound before you're taken to the respawn screen.

wear steel asspads tonight, pal.  your hindquarters have "Needle Me" written on 'em now....

Looking at those scores I'd just like to point out that halfway through the game I handed the controller to a monkey that was sitting next to me.  In between swigs from his bottle of Johnny Walker Red and a crudely implemented hand signal tutorial from yours truly, he was able to pick up the basics of the game....

...yeah....that's my story and i'm sticking to it.

He was referring to Ridah, and I agree. Saying something "sucks" without even trying it is kind of lame, and doesn't do much for the credibility of your opinions.

And anything less than "phenomenal" ... sucks? Well enjoy the 4 or 5 games in your lifetime that will meet those crazy standards!  Tongue

Why some people review games they've never even played by stating that they "suck", and then expect people to take them seriously is beyond me.   Roll Eyes

it very well might.  however, unless you're future man traveling back in time to tell us about games we've yet to try, i'd keep your posts to something more like "It sounds like something I wouldn't like" instead of "it sucks!".  you just come across as a spiteful person with a bone to pick.

Most of us don't moonlight as a superhero known as "Fashionman"....

I thought it was Mister Fabulous.

Mister Fabulous was ditched after a tragic color scheme accident involving the half cape and boots.  plus, it was after labor day and the inclusion of a white logo was a big no no.  pete felt it was best to ditch the whole persona and start fresh with a hero metrosexuals could rally around.
