i had a girlfriend once who collected game consoles... had boxes and boxes of peripherals and cables, and a fair number of games - but in the year+ that we went out, i never saw her playing much of anything besides DDR, Samba de Amigo, Master of Orion II and HoMM III.

766  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hasbro to release 'classic' Transformers on: June 02, 2006, 08:21:11 AM
i've not seen the Alternators before...  Tracks was one of my favorite Autobots, so i'm tempted to get that one... and Wheeljack was my first ever Transformer, but the reissue is weird.  and what's up with the Grimlock/Ravage/Shockwave rejiggerations??  and Optimus Prime as a pickup truck?  i'm not OK with this.
767  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hasbro to release 'classic' Transformers on: June 02, 2006, 12:10:08 AM
Astrotrain still turns into a train (as well as a space shuttle), check the link in the first post.  it looks less than cool, but that functionality is still there.  i'm still wondering why they picked that one to re-release...
768  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Books Read in 2006 (Keep it Updated) on: May 30, 2006, 01:32:05 AM
Calculus for Cats - Kenn Amdahl and Jim Loats

an often amusing read about the diabolic obfuscation of the mathematics of calculus as perpetrated by an alien species - the furry household feline.  it explains the core concepts thoroughly, and gives illuminating examples in a way that calc textbooks (and profs) tend to gloss over, or ignore entirely.  these involve catmobiles and headlights on hilly roads, quadratic mice and cats ice-skating circles and spirals, holding a string...  i really wish i had this book a few years ago - i now have a workable idea of what derivatives, the rules of differentiating, and limits are (their definitions and appropriate usage), and that my downfall was really an inadequate grasp of algebra*.  the knowledge i gained from this book would have actually let me complete the class i was in at the time, instead of succumbing to an ineffectual teacher and a dense textbook.  think it's time to try again.

* - i'm going to read their Algebra Unplugged book next...

The cuts made to this game after all this time...  What have the devs been up to?  It takes years to carve out all those features? :lol:


i first heard of it in 2003.  apparently they had a helluva time trying to get the AI working so everybody (NPCs, animals, mutants, etc) was off doing their thing and also would interact with each other in a believable way - imagine that...  

so that was the main reason it was delayed.

i'm currently into ooold Sabbath, oooold Grand Funk Railroad, Blue Cheer, MC5, Sir Lord Baltimore... so you would think i'd be into this band (and they're from Australia toooo) - but the guy's vocals really irritate me.
772  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Do you use the word "tight?" on: May 28, 2006, 02:20:17 AM

773  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Do you still have videotapes? on: May 28, 2006, 02:19:24 AM
almost all the tapes i own are either music video compilations from bands that haven't (or never will) been released on any other media, ever; or personal recordings.

besides, i don't even own a standalone DVD player.  : \

i really* do want to play this game, but it tends to crash on my computer randomly when entering buildings.   i've done all of the 'suggested fixes' on the official website (except 'roll back your video driver to a much earlier version' - yeeeeah, sure thing) - nothing worked.

778  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why do I hate the Hitman series? on: April 11, 2006, 07:38:01 PM
plotwise, i *hate how they wrapped it up at the end of the first game, then made a somewhat plausible excuse for a sequel - then when it really should have ended there, kept going with two more titles.  bleh.

790  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Geometry Wars on the PC? on: February 23, 2006, 03:33:32 AM
got it working with both analog sticks on my XBox controller (the original huge one, with a standard USB adapter and the XBCD driver) - it took forever to figure out how to get the right one working.  but it happened, and the control is really great.  it does help a lot to stay alive longer.

a V551 has very similar functionality to the RAZR - you can just upload the MP3s via Bluetooth.

794  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why can't more PC games come in DVD style cases? on: February 19, 2006, 06:53:41 AM
Quote from: "stiffler"
Of course I am willing to bet that with a move to DVD cases we will soon be greeted with a one sheet insert containing install instructions on one side and "here's how to find the PDF manual on the disc" on the other.


with the budget Euro titles, this information will be found on the reverse of the outside liner (yeah, you have to bend the case backwards and remove the liner to read it).

let me know what you want in exchange.   if you should happen to have the PC version, that would be excellent, but XBOX is OK.
