I've given up on this one. Dissapointing.  :x

I recommend "Feel The Magic" for anyone who picks up a DS. At least it's a game that was actually made for the system it's on!


This is what you get for buying every game that comes out!

Me likey this very much.  The free throw shooting takes a bit to get used to, and I still haven't pulled off a single alley-oop, but otherwise I'm having a blast.

I'll organize a tourney or league or something if there's enough interest.

Oh, and any tips on how to pull off an alley-oop?

It's more of the same, bit now the basic monsters require different tricks to kill.  I liked it, but it got tedious at points, and the lack of character interaction (beyond shooting bad guys) made it even more dull.


What do you expect?  Samus is a BOUNTY HUNTER.  What is she going to do, talk to a spieces whose language I'm sure she doesn't understand before blowing them to bits?  Oy.

Oh yeah, Devil?  Name some!

And, my main exposure to Alton Brown came on the Iron Chef shows he hosted.  My verdict?  Not too good.  He seemed so out of place on that show, and REALLY needed someone else to bounce off of and interact with.  Part of the appeal of the Japanese Iron Chef was the interplay between numerous people.  Brown just didn't have it.

I went to a symphony concert in DC once to see John Williams conduct.  Some scattered tickets went on sale the day of the concert, and I didn't want to bother trying to find anyone to go with me, so I just went.  I still had a great time, and didn't feel like a loser at all.

5181  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Vancouver, BC Travel advice needed on: November 10, 2004, 08:36:27 PM
The only problem about visiting Victoria is that it doesn't really bode well for a day trip, unless you leave REALLY early and come back REALLY late.  The ferry to Vancouver Island takes quite a while, plus there's the additional drive to the city itself.  You could always fly, but that's really expensive.

Victoria is great, though.  I spent a week there a few summers ago.  And if you have time, I highly recommend doing one of the whale watching tours.  That was a blast.

When gmail came out with their 1 GB of storage space, both Yahoo and Hotmail announced they would be greatly expanding the inbox storage capacities of their free e-mail services.  Yahoo did this a long time ago.  Today, Hotmail finally expanded their storage, giving me 250 MB instead of the previous 2.  Wooo!

I had a blast online so far.  Took a bit of getting used to deathmatch and FPS play against other people, but once I did, I did real well.

Ask Tebunker and Jancelot about having plasma grenades stuck to them.  Several times.  Each.   :twisted:

Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"
I'll say it once and I'll say it again:  Pirate the game or just buy it and use the inevitable homebrew server browser.

Seriously, if I'd modded my XBox and Microsoft pulled this shit on me, I'd never buy another XBox product again (I'd pirate anything I wanted to play).

That you're even considering buying another XBox makes me sick.


LE, Microsoft can pull that anytime they want. The XBox is their product, their intellectual property.  If they feel that people are wrecking their IP, they have every right to take steps to prevent usage of the modded product on more of their IP (that being XBox Live).  

As everyone else has said, it's a risk you take.  Kudos to Microsoft for catching it.

Dunno how many of you have heard, but Bungie is doing some MASSIVE stat tracking features on their website for Halo 2 multiplayer.  You have to link your XBox Live handle through Microsoft's .net passport and through Bungie's site, but from what I've been told, it's well worth it if you're a stat fiend.  Bungie's homepage (www.bungie.net) is where to go.

Yo.  At Devil's request, this is another thread to judge interest in an ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney.  It looks like there are a few people on the board who have the game.  Even if you have just a casual interest, please express interest and claim a team here.  If I can get a decent response, I'll set something up.

Oh, and I claim Calgary.

I don't mind, as long as you vouch for him. If he turns out to be an ass though, well.. the feral chickens will be coming for you!


I can vouch for him.  I'll just give him a gentle reminder to stay in line, too!  And isn't unleashing feral chickens beyond a mod's realm of power?

I'm in!  Can we set one rule for Console Gold games on XBL, though?  NO STORY DISCUSSION right away.  I don't want to have to unplug the mic and not be able to talk to my team if people are going to spoil the story.

Mike

Edit to add: Does anyone mind if a non-CGer joins in?  My brother will be getting the game too, and it would be nice to play on XBL with him and you guys at the same time.

Is anyone else getting a bug where the game stops recognizing that there's a controller in the port, even though it's still firmly attached?  I've noticed that every time I play for an extended period, this message pops up.  Sometimes it corrects itself, other times I have to unplug and replug the controller to continue playing.

Bad, bad coding if it's not just me.
