842  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Impressions: RoboRally re-release on: July 16, 2005, 08:32:24 AM
got a chance to play this tonight with five other people.  i had never played the original, but got enough of an impression on what it was like from other people to know how it played.  according to the other players, the new version is basically a tweaked and better-balanced revision. it plays pretty much the same, almost exactly as i had envisioned it - it's Turtle LOGO with conveyer belts and lasers.

how fun was it?  enough that i purchased my own copy - it's the first board game i've purchased in years.  definitely worth a look - see if your local games store has a demo you can play.

845  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Divine Divinity: what's the final verdict? on: July 11, 2005, 09:26:49 PM
this is the only game i could never get to work on my computer.  it'd randomly crash when entering a building - tried latest patches and allsuggestions listed on the official boards (short of rolling back my ATi driver back to some unspecified version); nothing helped.  it's too bad, as it did look to be pretty good.
846  Gaming / Analog Gaming / New Release: Shadows over Camelot on: July 02, 2005, 08:22:39 AM
played this tonight with three other people:

there's a lot to do - it's one of those cooperative games where it's all the players vs. 'the board', and there's a lot of side-quest mini-games to do, as well as player special abilities.  it was pretty cool at first, but the fun started to diminish when too much strategy was coordinated (even though the cards themselves weren't announced), and one player started telling the other players what to do in order to achieve desired victory conditions in each mini-game - winning is easily achieved when that happens.  it should be noted that we were not playing with loyalty or traitors, so that undoubtedly influenced the difficulty.
847  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Around the World in 80 Days on: July 02, 2005, 08:17:59 AM
tried this out tonight:

it seems to have a lot of potential for little nuances during gameplay, since there are a number of gameplay elements (time passed, position in the world, current turn leader, possession of cash, travel and event cards in hand, the detective marker, the bonus tokens and the randomness of balloon flight) that affect each other in many different ways. will have to give this more time - it looks like it would be much more interesting with more players.
848  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Impressions: RoboRally re-release on: June 30, 2005, 08:59:07 PM
yeah, it's out now.  going to the game store tomorrow to have a look at it.

auugh! i wanna play robot tank now.
853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atari Flashback 2.0 on: April 29, 2005, 09:37:47 PM
oh, and 4) looks more like Millipede, but i could be wrong
854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atari Flashback 2.0 on: April 29, 2005, 09:36:33 PM
1) is Air/Sea Combat (AKA Target Fun, when it was included with the Sears VCS),

2) is actually Robot Tank by Activision, which is one of my all-time favorite 2600 games,

8) looks like an Activision game, but I don't know which one.

under no circumstances give her money, but giving the book back (along with an explanation of how you fair you feel this situation is).

i also wouldn't really trust her, after this.

neither have i... but i own like, less than 15 DVDs (and they're mostly music video compilations)

one thing that can go to hell, however, are animated menus.  they're usually stupid-looking and add unnecessary extra time to menu navigation.

864  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ever heard of FullSail? on: March 09, 2005, 08:41:17 AM
there used to be a website called "fullsailsucks.com" with quite a few disappointing testimonials from students..  i'd be wary.

i went to Digipen last year - the art program there is very demanding (i was in the RTIS department, but have some friends going for an art degree from there.  most seem on the verge of failing out in their second year of the four year program.)

870  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fiery Xbox of Death (i.e. free power cord replacement f/ MS) on: February 24, 2005, 11:31:23 PM
that would make sense.  i spose the older xboxes would get the ones with the fusebreaker/wall-wart.
871  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fiery Xbox of Death (i.e. free power cord replacement f/ MS) on: February 24, 2005, 08:12:44 AM
uh, that's weird.  i got my replacement today, and it looks exactly like the old cord, only with a sticker tag.

873  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Martial Artist List] Declare your style and rank on: February 09, 2005, 10:29:10 AM
i've done some kickboxing and 'american' boxing (for about a year and a half).   after quitting that, and a tentative foray into Wing Chun kung fu, i decided that i no longer have the desire to hit things/people (spending half of class holding pads so someone else can smack you...hard... isn't really fun for me).   however, i'm still interested in getting better mental discipline and focus.  physical exercise would definitely be a bonus, as well as perhaps some gained abilities (self-defense, maybe, or super special ninja moves or whatever)....  what other options are there for me besides Tai Chi?

875  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Girls and Gaming on: January 22, 2005, 01:45:54 AM
exploration/sandbox games (ie any Sim- game, Black & White)
many different puzzle games
games based on board games (like Scrabble)
adventure games
strategy-lite games (ie Heroes of Might & Magic series)

Quote from: "disarm"
Quote from: "Destructor"
Now, I have to say this - there are free communication services out there, but they require both ends to have a headset, programs, configurations, etc.

That's why you have to pay for this - it allows you to chat with anybody who has a standard phone via the internet.

there are also free internet-based phone services that let you make PC-phone calls.  the only catch is that the person with the PC has to initiate the call.  i used to do it all the time as a way to save money on long distance calls when i was away to college.


what services are these?  i haven't seen free PC-Phone services for years.

currently i use Skype, which has great voice quality and is FREE if you know other Skype users (otherwise you pay like 2.5 cents a minute or so)

i too have held off on buying this game due to the Steam activation.  i realize this is probably the way of the future, but it doesn't mean i have to pay full price on this.  i'll wait until it drops below $20.
878  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Your anticipated games of 2005 on: January 09, 2005, 08:37:08 PM
all of these are ones i'm excited to play:

STALKER (can't wait to see how this is going to turn out)
Serious Sam 2 (it's got to be excellent, right?)
The Movies (not too excited about the concept, but it's a Molyneaux game and that's enough for me)
GTA:SA (these games are always fun)

and i'm watching for reviews on:
Bard's Tale
FEAR

there may be many more good ones next year, but i don't know enough about them yet.

...in the new issue of Wired...

select quotes...

"While the post-war generation of American children had everything fed to them on silver spoons and watched 'I Love Lucy' we were fighting and scratching our way back to the top, the righteous place of the Japanese people. There's this old American saying that applies to Japan: there's no such thing as a free lunch. Well, there obviously is in America, otherwise they wouldn't be so goddamn fat (laughs)."

"Mikami [Capcom CEO] is a double-faced bastard, that's what he is."

and of course

"HEY, BALLMER, WHY DON'T YOU SUCK MY TINY YELLOW BALLS?"
