I think we have a case of over moderation here but what the heck....


That was a joke, right Rob?

If not... you're right!  Heaven forbid we have (gasp) one more thread on a particular game.  And this other thread was (gasp again) started by a Mod!

Oh my God!   Call the overmoderation police immediately!    :roll:

Don't forget Harry Wong

I swear that's a real name.  I used to process claims for a certain department for the State, and he was in my case load.  I cracked up everytime.  I was so happy he never called me about any problems with his claims, I don't know if I'd keep a straight face

4542  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dungeon Lords Demo available tommorrow on: March 27, 2005, 03:57:28 AM
Quote from: "RedJak"
Needs a tutorial.  

I was able to get into the sewers under the town.  The key is to hit E when you at about quarter damage and drink a heal potion.  It does not take long before you end up with lots of them.

I however have no idea how to open a chest.  

Overall it is interesting if somewhat tedious.  I hope there is a secret to using all the combat combos.  I get by now by mainly just clicking a lot.   But there are lots of groups of goblins which are not difficult once you level up some skills but are time consuming.  I am guessing once I get a good weapon they should go down much faster.


You can assign spells/potions to your spell book.  That way you don't have to press E and click on the potion tab and then select the potion.

To do this, Press E, then go to the potion tab,  move your mouse over to the potion you want to add to your spell book (but don't click on it) while hovered, press a any number 1-0 on your keyboard and from now on when ever you press the assigned key, it will automatically drink that potion or cast that spell.

I made it about 15 steps before I was gang-raped by a pack of 3 wolves.

I should really figure out how to play a demo before I pass judgement but OUCH!


Ditto!

The guy spends years making a game and has you get massacred by a massive group of creatures in the first 30 seconds of the demo. Talk about bad first impressions... :x

**shakes head in bewilderment at the utter stupidity of some game developers**

If you didn't want me to buy your game, all you had to do was say it... :x


I thought the same thing, was ready to uninstall but kept at it though.  The first thing you need to do, is come to the conclusion that it's not Diablo.  It's not your typical hackNslash.  It's about timing, and blocking strikes and then attacking when an opening arises (just like boxing)

To open a chest there are many ways.  You can bash it, but the lock could jam on you, like it did for me one time, or  you can try to disarm it.

The way to disarm it is a bit difficult at first cuz you have no way of knowing what to do at first, but once you realize what needs to be done it's much easier.

When you access the chest, you should realize that there is an icon on the bottom left, some times 2 or more depending on the difficulty of opening the chest.    The key thing to do is memorize that icon, then click on disarm.  You'll then see a series of icons in the middle of the interface.  A progress bar will move accross the series of icons.  Once that particular icon is highlighted, press the highlighted icon and it will open up without exploding.

Now, you might notice you have keys.  Keys slow down the speed of the progress bar, depending on the quality of the key.  So before disarming, you want to press the inventory button and go to the key tab.  Select a key (you dont' want to use a good key on a easy chest) and then you should notice that your "odds" became easier.  Then hit disarm and repeat what I said above.  You should notice the bar move across slower


I hope that make sense.  I had to practice a few times.

Whatever you, don't bash the locks in the sewers.  I ended up jamming it, and now I'm stuck.

4549  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Ipod 4th Generation Hardcover case for sale on: March 24, 2005, 01:18:01 AM
Here's the deal,  I bought a 40 gig Ipod photo.  To protect my investment I picked up this...










However, instead of white, it's black.  I thought I had ordered the white version, but apparently I wasn't paying attention.

I paid $15.00 at thenerds.net, plus $9.99 shipping.  I can return it there, but it's going to cost me another $10 to ship it to me, and I'm going to have to wait a bit.

If this is something you're interested I'd be willing to ship it for $20 shipping included.  They typically sale for $28-35.
I haven't opened the package at all, and it's in pristine condition.

Let me know if this interests you.  The case is made of hard plastic, and you're able to fool around with the wheel with it on.

I'm 28, single, and no kids and I certainly hope you're not saying a person with a certain age, marital status, or whether or not a person has children can't enjoy a movie because of their age.  Listen, I loved Toy story, Monter Inc, Nemo, so it's not because it's supposedly aimed towards certain demographics.  Like I said before, compared to their other work, it didn't really grab me like the others did.

Heaven forbid someone disagree with the majority Tongue  I never said I didn't like it.  Just thought it wasn't that great.

I finally saw The Incredibles for the first time last night.  I wasn't that impressed.  The graphics, sound and animation were as usual, AWESOME, but the story and dialogue left me with a "meh"  It's certainly no Toy Story.  It wasn't as funny, it felt too long in places, and just didn't really interest me.  

Did you guys check out the short film, "Jack Attack"?  Now that was funny.  

Sorry to sound so negative, it wasn't horrible, but I sat there,  wondering,  why did this movie get so much hype?
