881  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Trading Forum 2006 Edition - some changes on: December 21, 2005, 08:41:26 PM
i'd say that almost half of the 'new' games i've acquired over the past 2 years or so have been from the PIFF thread.  :lorax:  so don't close it...

i've never complained about any ad/company before this one.  so what ad banners DO generate revenue?  i assume it's the blinky/flashy, making irritating noise Flash ones, eh?

while a question of 'ethics' would be overstating the matter, and disregarding my personal feelings on MMORPGs... it remains that this is the sort of business i, as a gamer, want no association with.

888  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Revolution has begun...(IGN chan, specs, launch date?) on: December 07, 2005, 01:53:26 AM
nintendo is still the only console company that is making a profit.   i'm guessing the cheaper-to-produce hardware is one of the contributing factors.

also, the custom control interfaces (DS: dual screen, touch screen - Revolution: special controller) have a bonus side effect of making piracy and emulation much* more difficult.

Quote from: "unbreakable"
It's uber predictable in that 'ok I'll grab the item and monsters are going to swarm me from all over' kind of way.  It isnt that I dislike FPS games, because I really like them.  It's just this game seems to be missing some intangible something for me.

it's definitely not going to get any better for you, then...  it clicked with me right away, as i could make up my own strategies and mini-games within the very simple 'kill everything and lots of it' framework - but i can see how some people could be turned off by the basic concept.
890  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Not liking Serious Sam... on: December 02, 2005, 01:41:52 AM
try it on hard and see if the pain-in-the-assedness is increased, or is somehow made better...

play on Normal your first time through.  seriously.  you'll get enough ammo/armor that you don't really have to worry about going through battles unscathed (like i was constantly worrying about) - as for the gameplay itself, you sorta have to be into that kinda thing.  i myself never cared for co-op mode, as you could just keep respawning when you died and that made it boring.

895  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Please watch the MirrorMask trailer on: October 19, 2005, 06:52:19 AM
i finally got around to seeing it tonight. no spoilers ahead!

it was actually pretty 'slow' paced, which is exceeeeedingly rare for a children's film these days.

so the bad, first: i kept losing attention, and it felt sometimes like 'oh, here's two actors against a bluescreen and CGI is everything else' so it felt really empty at times. it definitely has a 'kids movie' feel, so look out for drawn-out exposition and awkward scenes.

the good is that i've not seen a movie that looks like it before - the filters used on the different shots kept my eyes intrigued. the 'old film' look never got old, but i fear it being copied in the future.... it also has some of the better credits, ever (the particular music/CGI combination).

speaking of, the music/score definitely deserves mention - hard to describe, but it was very clear, and 'channel separated' - a very bold but minimal soundmix. the style was sorta old-timey in a very modern way. there were some some intriguing ambient SFX also. you can tell effort went into making a distinctive atmosphere for this.

i'm guessing this movie is going to make Dave McKean a sought-after set/character designer, for sure. his imprint is everywhere and some of the results are really amazing.

Any further patches/support for Halo?

What were the problems with the netcode on Halo?

What was it like working with Microsoft?  (i understand that Bungee had almost nothing to do with the PC version)

Were they given the Halo 2 porting project?

Quote from: "CrayolaSmoker"
It scarred you that bad?  :shock:

that was the purchase that made me go 'why am i paying $45 for one game?'  - especially since my backlog had reached the point of no return a while beforehand and i had no chance of catching up anytime in the near future.  so... it's been the bargain and used bins, ever since.

and re: B&W - i never got very far past the first level, but i really enjoyed that much, at least!

EDIT: thinking back more, i did* actually purchase Dungeon Siege brand-new the next year (?!!) (tho it did have a large rebate attached to it, so i only paid $23 for that title).  needless to say, the coffin was now firmly nailed shut; never again; etc.
902  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Black & White 2 .... on: September 14, 2005, 01:05:45 AM
will get it eventually...  (i haven't purchased a brand-new game since...  since the first B&W, actually)

905  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Do people with Skype Use VoIP? on: August 23, 2005, 06:03:01 PM
mobiles are freakin' expensive...

just wanted to point out this pretty neeeat service i've been using recently:

it's a downloadable VoIP program that lets you call mobiles/landlines in the US, and landlines in some major countries of the world, for extremely low cost (a flat fee of 1 euro for 4 months, right now, as it's in beta).  rates for calling mobiles in other countries is about the same as Skype-Out.

i paid my $1.27 and now i'm making lots of LD and international calls. sometimes the voice quality is rather choppy, but usually it works just fine.

since we're talking about Voltron, these should be mentioned:

Centibestial King GoLion
Armored Fleet Dairugger XV

(the series from which the 2 cartoons were ripped off from)

the Space Battleship Yamato movies?  i'm a big fan of old anime, but couldn't get through the first one... will have to try again.
911  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Playstation 2 Controller on PC? on: August 02, 2005, 07:20:57 PM
if you plan on playing dance-type games with PS dancepads (like StepMania), the Radioshack adapter is not a good choice.  you can't hit two directions simultaneously.

didn't care for the last two games.  the fun factor was really trashed with the move to 3D, for me.  clunky graphics, horrible interface...

Yeah, sunrocket has been pretty good.

Interesting feature.  Just put your list on aboard and call randomly?  Is there like a random call feature or a profile so that you have some clue who you are going to talk to or is it just a list and you click and say, "hello?"

i don't remember the particulars of how your SkypeMe! mode is displayed to other people (is it in the directory?  elsewhere?), but it's simply a setting one can activate or deactivate (alongside other settings such as Away, Online, Invisible, etc).
915  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What's so interesting about "MUSIC"? on: July 29, 2005, 04:47:53 PM
you probably haven't found the music that's clicked, yet.  more exploration is needed.

+1 to greeneggsnham.  the USPS pulled a stunning maneuver and turned a 'priority' priced shipment into an overnight...!
917  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Do people with Skype Use VoIP? on: July 27, 2005, 12:55:40 AM
So you are saying your a skype to voip convert?

if you have, say, Sunrocket service (which i checked out yesterday and it seems better than either of the two services i listed), that doesn't wholly negate Skype's raisin day entree (ie SkypeMe).  i think they can co-exist.

i should've been a bit clearer - "SkypeMe" mode is a setting on Skype which puts you on the 'call me if you're bored or whatever' list and makes it easier for people to find you.  at the other extreme, you can also choose to not have yourself listed on the directory, and block everyone, if you want.

i've met some cool people (due to their randomly calling me) on Skype.   it's definitely something to try out.
918  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS: PS2 + games + etc. **Lower price** on: July 27, 2005, 12:41:11 AM
i have a friend who would be interested in the PS2 by itself, if it were sub-$100.
919  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Do people with Skype Use VoIP? on: July 25, 2005, 07:32:03 PM
i haven't yet purchased minutes through them, although their international calling rates seem to be OK.  i haven't had too much success in getting friends to download the software and keeping it running all the time.  it is a good way to meet random, outgoing people from around the world, certainly (leave SkypeMe mode activated and see where you get calls from...)

i was planning on going through another VoiP provider in lieu of Verizon when i move out of my current place.  Lingo or Voicepulse look to be the best for me (read: cheap).
920  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Do people with Skype Use VoIP? on: July 25, 2005, 07:16:18 AM
just to clarify:

the free service on Skype is limited to calling, or recieving calls from, other people with the software installed on their machine.  all the extras (calling landline or mobile phones, voice mail, et al) cost money.
