4001  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Finished Kameo: Elements of Power on: December 21, 2006, 08:50:23 PM

Quote from: Simon on December 20, 2006, 05:24:45 AM

We have Viva Pinata and have played that a little bit, definitely a fun game. I think Ethan digs the action type stuff more though and was always asking for Kameo. icon_smile Marvel Ultimate Alliance is on my Christmas list this year, looks great.

I've been trying out the Live Arcade demos too but nothing has really grabbed me yet, although RoboBlitz seemed like it might be a good pick for us.

Can Ethan and I play Gears of War when I get my 360?  You should pick up lost planet when it comes out smile

The only thing that interests me is Rainbow Six for the PC.

I will wait to hear what the so-called experts have to say at the R6 website.  If they say the controls are good (I can't imagine them being as good as they are on the 360 - but you never know), I'm gettin' it.

If the game is still a FPS style game, it's automatically better than any console version of the game.

Remember Halo 2's teaser?  The one where he latched onto that bomb that fell out of that spaceship, rode it down into a covenant spaceship, blew up that spaceship and fell to the planet below?

Remember doing anything near as cool as that in Halo 2?

I don't.  Halo teasers are lame.

Err... yesterday I think.


Who got it?  Spill the beans please!  Worth it?  Not worth it?  GOTY?  Piece of dogcrap? 

Any news would be great.

Only played a few levels.  it's more of the same.  which isn't suprising, because BFMEII was more of the same compared to the original.

I actually think the presentation has been downgraded.  Gone are the cool ingame cutscenes that turns into a painting (or vice versa) now it's just pictures of maps and concept arts as the story unfolds.

Then you have the, whoever builds the most units win, part of it, which is getting old.  I know this is wishful thinking, but I hope C&C3 doesn't have that. Games like Company of Heroes did it right.

Anyways, if you liked BFME2 you'll probably like this, the same gameplay mechanics are there, but the presentation is so so.

I'm not gonna go down that road and name names, this isn't the place to shit on people at other forums, but there were two people at OO that pretty much baited me for their own kicks, and as such, I retaliated verbally one too many times, and got banned. It's a long story not worthy of repeating, but needless to say, even though I may disagree with a few people here from time to time, this place is a lot more fun to visit and the people here a lot nicer to be around.

I still miss not talking to a lot of my friends there and I would love to still have that opportunity, but this place is great and I appreciate being here.

I think everyone can safely assume that most people banned from there were banned for arguing with the exact same set of people.  OO exists only because what was allowed over there was not going to happen over here.

I think it's safe to assume if we keep going down this road, this thread will be locked, last chance...

*Sigh* There's always someone who DELIBERATELY misses the point.

Hey Cal, maybe you missed the point that almost all of those Rice records are CAREER records.  I was using a current player, and demonstrated that his numbers *through current* are identical to Rice's.  Career stats aren't applicable to someone who hasn't even hit 30 yet.  If an alien came down to earth, landed, and it looked at those stats, it would conclude that those two are roughly equivalent receivers, and it would have no indication that Moss won't play as long as Rice, so it would assume his career numbers would end up roughly the same.

You're the one missing the point.  The career is the point, sunshine.  Until someone meets those criteria, they aren't even worth mentioning.


And to even compare Moss to Rice is ludicrous, sure his stats maybe comparable, but overall he's nowhere near Rice in terms of the complete package.

Figured I better start my own thread instead of hijacking other people's threads.  I'm asking for an xbox 360 and the vga adapter for christmas, and I have a question regarding the sound.  I plan on using the xbox 360 on my LCD which is also being used by my pc.  I just realized, I only have one input on the LCD, so I'm going to have to be switching back and forth it seems.  Damn.  Anyways, that leads to my next thought, will that be the same for my sound?  Do I have to unplug the sound card whenever I switch back to different systems?  Is there some kinda switch for this?  Would make things a lot easier.

4037  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: How much credit card debt does your household have? on: November 20, 2006, 07:34:33 PM
Ours is high.  Higher than most here I'd say.  Nothing to be proud about.  Now that we're married our debt has been combined.  And it's scary looking at it on paper.  However, we plan on getting out of debt in 1.5 years.  I've drew up a budget, spoke to an advisor who asked me what I have done so far, and he said that was the exact plan he was going to suggest.  He said we are on the right track, we addressed the issue, taken steps to fix it, now we just have to follow it.  Well, it's been 2 months, and we've already paid off the wedding rings, and 3 cards, with 2 more cards being paid off in December.  We ended up using most of our wedding money towards debt.  It sucked, but it had to be done, if we want to reach our goals. 

Basically my plan is, pay off the smaller balances first.  We do this for two reasons, we're both visual people, we need to see progress.  By tackling the bigger balance first, it would take longer to pay it off obviously, and not see any results fast enough.  Now we see less bills coming in because of it.  Secondly, by paying off the smaller balances, that's less minimum payments we have to pay. 

I pay the min payments for the cards with the highest balance, I figure how much we have to pay on non-credit card bills, savings, allowance, and misc, and put the rest as a bonus payment to one single card.  As we pay off cards, I use the minimum payments we used to pay and apply it to a different card as a bonus payment.

So everymonth, the bonus payments get bigger and bigger, while the min payments and balance decrease.  We only use 2 credit cards right now, and I make sure to pay them off as we spend.  I do that every Saturday.  We have a United Miles card and a American Airlines Card, and Erin is close to getting a free ticket, so once she gets that, we're going to cancel that card as well, and just rely on the United.  So far it's working, we're not getting behind, and the plan is doable.  We live off of $40 a month for personal allowance, $70 for date nights, (anything we don't use, will carry over to the next month) and $70 for misc funds. 

It makes us think before using the money, and it still gives us some freedom to do some things once in a while.

We should be paid off by Mar 2008 or sooner.
4038  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I am playing with my Wii now :) who else has it? on: November 20, 2006, 07:05:34 PM
Grrr, I had my mind made up for the Xbox 360 for my christmas list, now I'm not sure.

Things to consider.  I don't have a HDTV and probably won't for a few years.  So by getting an Xbox 360, I won't see it in it's full glory for some time.

However, the games interest me moreso than the Wii.  

But, the Wii is cheaper, and the controls seem really cool.   The sports pack would be up my alley, and I'd probably enjoy zelda, but everything else that I've seen so far didn't really interest me.

Would I be making a mistake going for the xbox 360 even though I don't have the hdtv?  However, I just remembered, (long long weekend) I planned on hooking the xbox 360 up to my 20 inch widescreen lcd monitor.
4039  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Best player who has ever played football retires this Sunday on: November 20, 2006, 06:18:30 PM
I was able to go to the game thanks to the generosity of Pyperkub (from OO, not sure he visits here).  I got to see the niners claim 2nd place, stuff the seahawks, and more importantly see Jerry retire.  I was there on his last game as a niner, and that was emotional, but this day took the cake.  It had meaning.  Not only did he retire as a niner, the niners beat the division champion and is now back in the playoff hunt. 

During Jerry's introduction, he was introduced as the Greatest Player Ever, so, i'm not the only one who thinks so (but I do admit, the announcer is biased, plus he'd probably lose his job Tongue)  But no other player can compare to Jerry, and I'm not just referring to stats.
