521  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EA buys Mythic on: June 21, 2006, 09:14:51 PM
Earth and Beyond may not have been an excellent MMO, but I still wanted to play it after it had been cancelled. I enjoyed it a lot and it was pretty lame of EA to just pull the plug on everyone playing it.

I do my very best not to buy further EA products and I know for certain I will NEVER buy an EA MMO game again.
522  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dark Messiah Of Might & Magic - completely awesome video on: June 01, 2006, 07:41:27 AM
After watching this and seeing the new screenshots released today, I've bumped this one up to my most anticipated games this year.

Looks absolutely incredible.

Picked it up this afternoon. It's fantastic.

I read in a dev note that you get 2 quests later on in the game that expand your inventory. However, there are no plans to add a stash in the towns.

Quote from: "Thin_J"
I don't care if it's a visually updated rip-off of Diablo 2. If the story is ok and the game is fun to play I'm good to go.



I think the story was written by Randall Wallace. He wrote the screenplay for Braveheart. Should be decent.
526  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Titan Quest Demo Coming on: May 10, 2006, 09:36:41 PM
The only complaint I can see people having with the game is that the camera is fixed, ala Diablo. It doesn't bother me much, because you can zoom in and out, but in a fully 3d game it's something you expect.

With that being said, I've been playing the demo since it was released pretty much non-stop. It's excellent as far as these hack-n-slash games tend to go. Nothing in the way of innovating the genre, but it's extremely polished and beautiful. I love the theme of Ancient Greece and the skill tree seems interesting and varied. So far there is a good abundance and variety in treasure, so loot seekers will be pleased in that aspect.

I've got a level 6 Warrior so far and it's been quite easy - I haven't died yet. I noticed there are two more difficulty levels above the standard normal, but I'm hoping the game gets a bit more challenging in the later parts.

It's worth pointing out I'm playing the game on system specs lower than the minimum requirements at 1024x768 and it's playable. You can't change any of the settings to 'off,' only to low which seems odd. I wish I could turn anti-aliasing and the shadows off, because that would certainly smooth out some of the chops I get at times. Still very playable and I plan on buying it in June.

It's fun, but don't expect anything innovative. The game is clearly inspired by Diablo II.

More info on the Dragon Quest Swords title. Apparently there was one DQS title already released. It came with a sword peripheral that you would swing based on cues from the TV. This title sounds more like a gimmick for kids than a real game.

Ugh.  Definitely a wait-and-see then.

I looked over Gamespot's blow-by-blow and I can't find anything SquareEnix announced today for the 360.  Did I miss something or did they diss the 360?


Nothing announced for 360.
529  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Desperados 2 demo out on: April 13, 2006, 12:02:30 AM
Pretty cool demo, but it has the same minimum requirements as Oblivion and it shows. The game doesn't run very well on my outdated machine. frown

531  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Diablo Battle Chest w/ free copy of Sacred Gold on: April 12, 2006, 05:55:50 AM
The Battle Chest comes with the original Diablo, Diablo II, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction expansion pack, and a strategy guide. Everything is in mint condition, as I've only opened the box to look at it once.

I'd like to sell it for $25 and I'll throw in a free copy of Sacred Gold which includes Sacred and both it's expansions.

535  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid Prime:Hunters reviews are coming in,and impressions! on: March 23, 2006, 03:45:09 AM
The audio is superb. Really glad they brought over some of the music from Prime on the Cube. I love the battle track that kicks in when you are chasing down one of the hunters.

Absolutely love the game so far. The control is on par with a mouse, and while it tends to cramp up the hands, it's just amazing to play a FPS on a console/handheld that is as precise as playing on PC.
536  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid Prime:Hunters reviews are coming in,and impressions! on: March 20, 2006, 03:41:57 AM
Nintendo Power gave it an 8/8.5 citing the single player was linear and repetitive, but the great multiplayer made up for it.
537  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is 3/20 one of the best videogame release dates in history? on: March 18, 2006, 07:13:03 AM
Most certainly not. Oblivion will most likely be enjoyable for those who liked Morrowind, but it's not going to be the GOTY everyone is claiming it to be.

Metroid Prime Hunters and Tetris will be nice diversions until the new SMB is released.

Ordered the game from Stardock and my computer that is able to play it went kaput. Won't be buying a new machine in the foreseeable future, so I'm looking to either sell the game for $39.99 + shipping or trade for Nintendo DS games.

List of games I'm interested in acquiring:

Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow
Phoenix Wright
Mario & Luigi Partners in Time
Sonic Rush
Advance Wars Dual Strike
Electroplankton
540  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Galactic Civilizations II - Reviews/Impressions on: February 22, 2006, 02:29:40 AM
I just bought it off Stardock and am downloading now. The core game downloaded at 350k/sec, but the multimedia pack is going pretty slowly at 80k.

Will post impressions as soon as I've gotten to play.

Playing the game on a X1900 is "the bomb". You don't have to turn anything down!


Awesome! That is the card I just got for my rig. smile

He kept saying that the absolute most important thing was the video card. The game is majorly limited by what video card you have, due to the HEAVY use of shaders.


I'd hope it would run great on a $600 video card. That's almost half the price of the machine I just ordered.  :lol:

Ack, that's not good from IGN at all. Game Informer only gave it an 8.25 and their review text indicated it should have been lower.

Oh well, there is still GalCiv2.
545  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Age of Empires: The Age of Kings for DS Screens on: February 14, 2006, 07:30:43 AM
Gamespot's review is up now.

http://www.gamespot.com/ds/strategy/ageofempiresiiageofkings/review.html?sid=6144202

8.2


The Good: Engaging turn-based strategy effectively translated from the classic PC series; five compelling campaigns pack in many hours of gameplay; dozens of different unit types and unique technologies to research; great presentation features lively battle sequences and good music.
The Bad: Gameplay's pace can get sluggish in larger battles; visuals sometimes get too cluttered.

I didn't like the demo for Empire at War at all, so I automatically suggest GalCiv 2. From what I've read, it sounds as if it's going to be a great game.

Another write-up by Brad on the Galciv forums.

http://www.galciv2.com/Forums.aspx?ForumID=164&AID=99854#782221

Details plans for bonus packs on and after the release of the game, among other things. One thing they're considering is a high resolution texture pack (1024x1024) for those with monster machines. Really unheard of for this genre.

Sounds as if they really got it right with GalCiv2. Can't wait.

Everything about GalCiv2 excites me except that I couldn't get into GalCiv.  Part of that was the lack of a tutorial scenario.  Anyone know if GalCiv2 will include a tutorial?

(I'm a long-time 4X player so I'm not a newb but for some reason GalCiv just won't hold my attention for long enough to figure it out.)


Yes, there will be a series of video tutorials.

557  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WoW is anti gay? on: January 29, 2006, 07:45:26 AM
Uhh, why would you advertise that your guild is Gay friendly in WoW? It makes no sense. The point of the game is to kill monsters and collect treasure. The same would go if there was a heterosexual only guild. Anything of sexual orientation has no place in the game.

Blizzard aren't anti-gay, they are just enforcing common sense.
558  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Heroes of Might and Magic V public beta on: January 28, 2006, 02:18:33 AM
I think a big reason they want to delay it is...well, it doesn't even work. After about 20 attempts to get a game going, I was never able to get past the first persons turn before being booted back to the lobby.

The games performance is pretty poor as well. For a TBS game, you expect it to run a bit better than it currently does. The graphics are just barely above that of Etherlords, of which is by the same developer. It looks very similiar in style.
559  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Heroes of Might and Magic V public beta on: January 27, 2006, 02:13:32 AM

It's quite possibly the biggest piece of crap I've ever had the displeasure of playing.
560  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chibi Robo on: January 25, 2006, 07:00:40 AM
I don't trust Game Informer. I remember them saying they rated Paper Mario 2 lower because they didn't believe their audience would like it.

They are most defintely anti anything Nintendo.
