3921  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / *** NEW*** GT Code of Conduct on: September 01, 2006, 05:51:31 AM
About Our Forums
Gaming Trend and its forums are all about gaming. That said, you'll find that we have a healthy amount of discussion in other areas such as sports, hardware/software support, real life, off-topic, and to a degree even religion and politics. With this mix of topics and a wide array of people discussing them we have outlined a few rules (subject to change without notice) for anyone who participates on these boards Ė they are outlined below.

Unfortunately, thanks to the semi-anonymity of the Internet, some people get out of line in conversations or the items they post. While the rules are spelled out below, I'll once again state that we have little tolerance for direct attacks, offensive pictures, or other behavior that disrupts our community. Every post has a 'report post' icon that you can click on if you find a post that violates the rules below and you want to quickly notify one of our moderators. We take the moderation of these boards seriously, both to keep the discussions fun and also because we have people from many major development and publishing house reading the boards. Does this mean that if you have a bad day and step out of line once you will be permanently banned? It is unlikely Ė you will probably be warned and, if the pattern of behavior continues, you may be banned temporarily or permanently.  Specifics are spelled out below.

Our moderation staff is here to help you enjoy the experience.  The team is comprised of Naednek, and Farley2K.  Respect them as you would respect me and everyone will get along fine.

The forums are here for everyone's enjoyment. A little civility and thought goes a long way here. I hope that you will enjoy the forums and I look forward to an engaging conversation with you in the near future!

Ron Burke
Director of Gaming Trend


Personal Attacks & Common Sense
Personal attacks, hate speech and personal vendettas are simply not allowed on our boards. This is not a place for combat or flame wars.  If you're having a problem with anger management, get it under control, or find another internet forum to post on.  If you have something against another poster you will either need to keep silent or be respectful of their opinions.  Feel free to engage in discussion, but keep it civil. If you can't talk to other people as if they're intelligent, you wonít be posting here for long. Don't talk down to your fellow posters, don't lecture them, and don't beat people over the head with your opinions as though they were facts.  Use common sense and everyone will be happier. Be respectful of other users and industry representatives that may post on the forums. We want this to be a fun place to come and share ideas and stories.  This also includes private messaging.  Do not take this to private message whether you are using the Forum messaging features or personal emails. 

The posting of inflammatory, rude, repetitive or offensive messages designed to annoy or antagonize other posters or disrupt the flow of discussion is not allowed here.  If you are looking for a place to do this youíve come to the wrong forum and will be quickly shown the door.
In addition, please do not respond to any baiting.  By responding you are giving the troll what they want - a reaction out of you.  This will soon escalate and get quickly out of hand.

Stay on Topic
Do not hijack other people's thread.  It is very easy to switch topics within a thread, it's not fair to the original poster.  If you like to discuss something else, please create a new thread.


Do not post links to piracy or warez websites or mention where or how people can do such things.  Even cleverly or creatively letting people know where to go is not permitted. NEW If you have a pirated game/media please do not discuss this here at GT, please take it elsewhere. We depend on our relationships with developers and publishers to make our website successful.  Do not post something that might jeopardize this.

Nudity/Porn Pictures or Links
Gaming Trend is a safe for work environment.  Occasionally, we have threads that skirt the edge of being work safe.  These threads must be marked as NSFW (Not Safe For Work).  Essentially, think late night syndicated TV, not Skinemax.  Nudity (or anything beyond it) is expressly forbidden from being posted in image form. (a.k.a. Everything leading up to, but no naughty bits)  If you decide to link to something that contains questionable, crude, vulgar, or anything of an explicit nature, please mark it accordingly.  Don't post or link to porn - this is not the place for it.  With NSFW in play, extra moderation may be required - please don't take it personally...we are simply trying to keep Gaming Trend a safe environment for everyone.

Signatures are allowed, but try to keep them relatively short so they donít become a distraction from the flow of the forums.  Images or banners are not allowed in your signature.  Personal websites linked in your signature are typically okay as long as they donít violate any of our rules.  If you have any doubts ask a moderator.

JPG and 80x80.  No Gif, no exceptions. Please refrain from using a NSFW image as your avatar.  While GT generally allows NSFW threads that are specifically labeled as NSFW, it is impossible to do so with Avatars.

Pimping your Website
This is not a place to pimp your personal website, Myspace page or Ebay auction - it's a place for people to share ideas and have fun.  Occasionally mentioning a personal website is probably acceptable, repeatedly mentioning it isnít.  Have enough sense to become part of the community before you test this theory - your first post shouldn't be about your site.

Multiple Forum Accounts
Multiple usernames (or alts) are not allowed.  Infractions against this will result in permanent banning from the site.


This board has a dedicated Trading Forum for game trades and sales.  This is the only place on our board where this is allowed.  The Trading Forum also has its own rules about what and how you may trade/sell so please read those before you post there.  If your sole purpose for registering here is to sell stuff you belong on Ebay.

Post Padding
Spamming this forum will not gain you points, stars, a cookie or anything else. Please add something to the conversation here.

Private Messages
They are called PRIVATE messages.  They stay that way.  Posting what was sent in a PM constitutes a breach of good sense.  If you need something addressed that badly, you can report a PM to a mod.  Please do so.

We are trying to make this a work-safe environment. This means that we expressly forbid swearing in post titles, usernames, and signatures. It also means that you may wish to throttle back your use of 'colorful' language. While we do not overtly outlaw swearing, we ask that you use it in moderation Ė think FX network, not The Sopranos.  Repeated and flagrant disregard for this policy will result in editing, deleting, or other more dire consequences.

Other Rules
The Moderators and Gaming Trend Staff reserve the right to add or subtract rules or edit this list. If we make changes to our rules we will post a notice on the forum so everyone can be aware of the change.

Rule Infraction Consequences

While each infraction will be handled on a case by case basis, repeated violations of the rules will be handled as below:
First Infraction = Warning via PM, and your post may be edited for content if necessary
Second Infraction = Warning and possible temporary suspension of account for 1 week.
Third Infraction = You need time to learn.  Take a vacation for an amount determined by moderation staff no less than 3 months.
Fourth Infraction = Permanent suspension from the entire site.  This means I ban your IP from reaching the front page or reading the forums.  You are no longer welcome.

Also, I won't be able to respond to anything until the afternoon, since I'll be at work, and this thread is way too NSFW.   So please don't think I'm ignoring you, the mods and admins are aware of this, and I'm sure they'll jump in if they need to.
3923  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: This Is Fun Pt 3: This Time It's Personal! (possibly NSFW) on: September 01, 2006, 05:41:42 AM
The reason why it was edited, wasn't because of too much skin.  It was for the portrayal of the sexual act. 

The COC states
"Nudity/Porn Pictures or Links
Pictures and links to any porn or nudity will not be allowed on the forum. We want to keep the Gaming Trend forums work-friendly.

Yes some pictures are suggestive, and maybe we need to go back and edit those too.  But this is a judgement call, and I felt this picture went way over the line and against the COC.

Now, I should have handled it a little differently.  I should have PM'd you first and ask you to take it down, instead of doing it myself.  I should have given you the chance first.  For that, I'm sorry.

This is what it looks like on my forum's SMF... I'm not too sure if that works for this one, though.

ya,  you get that window, but it doesn't automatically link to the newly moved thread.  I moved the said thread, and a few others, and I really don't like how it's set up.  I guess that's how SMF works.

I wonder how this will translate on the PC version

The PC version is apparantly the same codebase as the current-gen (Xbox/PS2/etc) games, so you get the more fully-featured less half-assed game, albeit with the older less impressive graphics.

I'm actually going for the PC version myself.

3935  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Madden for PC? on: August 22, 2006, 07:10:49 PM
ya, it's pretty much the exact same version as last year.  I think they have used this engine for at least 4 years now.  However the superstar mode is pretty cool.  But not really worth it.  If you're itchin for a football game, wait for the bargain bin.  I don't think the PC version will ever be good as the console ports.  It used to be the other way around, but they go with the money makers, and pc sports games certainly are not money makers.

Life's a bitch.  Suck it up.  Be happy you have a job.

Seriously Dirt, piss off. I am grateful for what I have, but I don't need any of your snarkiness in my thread. Head on back to OO or whatever and please just avoid my threads if your just going to pop in with purposefully insulting cliches. "Life's a bitch, suck it up." Come on man, what did you do, find that in the biggest cliches of the century book?
I give what I receive.  You want nice?  Then play nice.

I don't see anywhere on this thread or other threads where Calvin did anything wrong to you dirt.  If your snide comments are from a different board then keep it there.

Also, as I have recently learned, if you don't care for a certain poster just ignore them

I think EA hired the NFL 2K team.  I've only seen madden 2006 on the xbox 360 and from my bad memory, this looks like a big step away from the 2006 version as far as graphics and animations go.  Even the feel of the game looks different.

I turned off anti-aliasing and my crashes stopped.

This ordinary Joe is flying as a guest with the Blue Angels and whenever they do their manuevers, he keeps passing out unable to hand the g's.  It's funny seeing his reaction as he loses conciousness and waking back up.

3952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Hitman: Blood Money demo is out! on: May 23, 2006, 04:15:48 AM
Quote from: "Autistic Angel" *this* is a terrible demo!  I was pretty interested in getting this game, even considering putting down a preorder for it now that my local Electronics Boutique has cut back their PC stock to bare minimum levels, but now it would take some extremely impressive reviews to even make me consider it.

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin had a fantastic demo.  It must have had a dozen different ways to approach the hit, and I played it for *hours* until I finally got a perfect "Silent Assassin" rating by killing no one except the mark and escaping without triggering a single alarm.  I was disappointed to discover that the rest of the game wasn't nearly so clever and open-ended, but the demo definitely sold me on the game.

Like the Hitman 2 demo, the Blood Money demo lets you play through the first level of the game.  Unfortunately, instead of an awesome full-fledged assassination scenario, this demo is a rigidly linear tutorial level which eliminates any sense of experimentation or exploration by telling you every single step you need to take.  The ironic thing about this tutorial is that it rarely tells you *how* to do it, so when you're told to "Distract the Guards" or "Snipe the Three Men," be prepared to hunt through your keyboard mappings while you figure it out.

The mission starts with you waiting for a guard to open a gate while you listen to your briefing.  Since I can't find any Save Game option so far, my failed attempts to Distract the Guards have caused me to hear that briefing five or six times now.  There won't be a seventh.  I think the fact that I was tasked with sniping three men from a window where only two were visible was the final breaking point.

The graphics are good, featuring some new tricks like soft shadows and normal mapping which give faces a big boost in definition.  The physics, however, haven't improved since Hitman 2 was released in 2002.  Dragging bodies results in the same wildly flapping ragdolls that most other games decided were unacceptable two years ago.  I also haven't seen an environment this untouchable since Final Fantasy VII -- I understand a pistol isn't going to shatter anything it shoots in just a couple rounds, but even some of the windows seem protected by an invisible shield.  It's a bad sign when a game released in 2006 doesn't even appear to feature bullet holes when you plug a flimsy wooden wall.
