I love it.  However I find it too easy.  I played the good campaign on normal, and i breezed through that.  Now I'm playing the Evil campaign and put it on hard, and while it's a bitter harder than normal, I'm still not being challenged.

It's a paper/rock/scissor type of game, every unit has a strength and weakness to it.

Today my bro and I played online (where the game really shines) and I got my ass kicked.  He ranks 112 in the 1on1 ladders and he wanted to try something out on me.  He told me he would only build hero units and that's it.  I took him on.  I had a 400 unit cap.  I lost sad to say 400 troops to his 5 heroes.  It was simply amazing how he did it.  He just picks and stabs and then retreat, only to gain unit experience.  Then as he gets higher he becomes more powerful.  Eventually he had the undead army and game was over.

My bro is a champ at RTS games.  He beats me at everything, doesn't matter which game.  I had BFME for 2 weeks before him, hoping I'd get the advantage, my first game, I lost.  However I did beat him once, and I was happy smile

I like this game over Warhammer mainly due to the atmosphere.  Both games have huge weaknesses, (warhammer having an uninvolved story line, and being repetitive, while BFME having an easy campaign and unit/hero balancing issues)

It is a fun game, but the single player game did nothing for me.  Story was boring and sporatic.  Mutliplayer is really fun.

I looked at this the other day.  I figured it had to be soon since we didnt see one last year.  It looks fantastic, I am really going to miss the 19.99 for thier games though.  This looks like it should be worth it though.

What do you mean?  There was an ESPN Baseball last year, I played it for months.

Also I believe this is also $19.99.  The normal price starts on the 2k6 series of espn brand games

Wow this game is looking great.  I loved last year's.  This years looks even better!

Check out the new modes.  Instead of being the batter, you can be the runner.  Pretty interesting.

There's 4 more videos too

no, as long as you are a citizen.  They typically ask for your ID, where you are headed and such.  It's just when you get back is when they intimidate you.  Prepare to answer pointless questions.

4532  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone order from on: January 09, 2005, 07:05:29 PM
A lot has changed since my last post.

After I had canceled my order, I checked my order status page, and noticed that my order was partially cancelled.  

Then later that day I received a confirmation # of my order.  I called tigerdirect again to confirm that my order has been cancelled, and spoke to a person name Roxane.  She actually seemed like she cared about my problem.  I asked her if I showed her proof (my printed order confirmation with the DEC 31st date) would she give me $100 off.   She said she'd show it to her supervisor.  So I scanned in the document and sent her a copy.  She promised she would get back to me the next day.

It's been a full day and no response, so I called Tigerdirect and immediately spoke to a supervisor.  (I should have just cancelled and moved on, but I wanted to see what the supervisor would do)  He gets on the phone and basically doesn't care too much.   He tells me if my rebate gets denied, I am to send in the denial letter to him and then he'd give me $100 off.  He wouldn't bother looking at my proof.  I relunctantly accepted figuring, it's going to cost me $400 if I buy it elsewhere, might as well gamble just in case they do give me the $100 off.

Later that night, I'm whining about all this to some people in my WOW guild.  Apparenlty someone who owns a company, has a contact with Tigerdirect and he told me to mail him the situation and he'd forward it along to his contact.  I went to start my email, and wanted to find the product page.   To my suprise, I notice that there's a new rebate involved with the same mobo/cpu.  This rebate now has an expiration date of 2/28/05.  So I cancelled my order and placed a new one.  Problem solved.

I emailed the person I've been talking to at Tigerdirect, and told him the situation.  I asked for him to confirm my original order was cancelled.  He replies back and tells me he will also give me free overnight, as long as I give him my new order #.  Unfortunately my order had already shipped, so he gave me free shipping.  

Last night I emailed him asking if my computer comes with a heatsink.  Today I find out he just sent me this  for free and with UPS 2nd Day Air.

I totally didn't expect that, and I wasn't trying to get anything free out of him, I just wanted to be sure, because if it didn't I was going to pick one up at a local store.

I don't know if I'd shop there again, but after shipping that heatsink for free, and refunding shipping, has put them in a better light.

There's no official stance (at least from what I can tell) about pimping out a site.  However let the mods deal with it if they seem it's a problem, rather than yourself LE.  I saw this post this morning and I the thought came to mind, but I let it go, because he has been here for a while and has contributed.

Also, lets do away with the personal attacks, no matter how indirect they are.

Sorry, I guess I should have just warned a mod about the blatant soliciting instead of making a sarcastic comment about it.

 Yes you should have, but something tells me you enjoy these types of reactions...  History repeats itself as they say
4536  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Retail CPU question on: January 02, 2005, 09:23:33 PM
Tigerdirect has screwed me over, so now I'm back to square one. One thing I'm a bit confused on do I need to buy any paste/greese if it's the retail version of the CPU. I take it the retail version of the CPU comes with a Heatsink. Is that correct?

I have to wait till tigerdirect refunds me befor placing a new order (visa gift card) so I have a few days to do this.
4537  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone order from on: January 01, 2005, 08:55:14 AM
Today I purchased the following

It comes with a $100 rebate that you fill out online.  The rebate expires today.  I started to place my order around 5:30-6:00pm and after putting in my credit card info I went to click on submit, and I get an error. The whole site went down apparently for about an hour.  

If finally came back up and sucessfully placed my order.  I rpinted out the receipt with my order #, and immediately went to order tracking just to be sure it went through.  I got a message saying that page is currently being upgraded or something similar to that effect.

I check later and I'm able to access my account.  However, it says my order was placed on 1-01-05.  Which is far from the truth, and at the time I placed my order it was 7:08 pm pacific, and they are on the East coast so it would still be 12/31/04

I'm hoping this doesn't screw me up on my rebate.  Also, I went to fill out the rebate info on the online site (they give out instructions on what to do)  I fill it out and then it asks for my order or serial # and it keeps telling me my order # is invalid.  Before entering this in, they give you a warning in red letters to not apply for this rebate more than once.  I didn't finish the process, got to step 2.  I'm worried that I just screwed up, because their site won't recognize my order #.

Anyways, the point of my question is, how is their customer service?  I'm hoping they can work this out.  I've done everything I was supposed to do.

I post over there more because I am not a console gamer and the Off Topic is a bit more active on OO, but I visit both. The double posts do get old though. I wish the community would have moved as a whole instead of splitting.

well, at one point everyone liked CG and thought of it as their new home., but GG mods didn't like the fact that they were powerless, started their own forum.  Many people wanted R&P and left. and the rest is history smile

I split my time at both.  At first I didn't like the idea, but I ended up missing a lot of people.  So I just visit both sites

alright I got this for xmas.  I hate college sports, mainly cuz I'm not familiar with the teams and don't really root for one, but when the other NBA games suck so bad, I got desperate and put this on my list.  Holy shit this game is awesome finally a game that's done right this year.

I haven't really read the manual so maybe you can help a lazy gamer.  

What's the trick on freethrows.    My gamepad vibrates like a pulse, is that supposed to mean something?  

When I start a legacy mode, how come I can join any team I like?  Do you start at the bottom and work your way up based on reputation and such?

How do you do an ally-oop?

Think that's it for now.

The main thing I don't like about the game is the unit carryover.  I'm towards the end or maybe just pass the middle and I rarely have to build any units now.  I just have 280+ units already at my disposal, and rarely die.  It's just too easy now

If if becomes a regular thing, you'll just have to plan it better.  Meaning, don't send back both dvd's at the same time, send one right after you finish watching it, then watch the next dvd.  Unless you're a couch potatoe and watch all 3 dvds in one sitting, well, get a life biggrin  Just kidding smile
