The choke point for me is on my 64MB Geforce 3, but if Stiffler is still up for the trade we discussed a ways back, I might be upgrading that a wee bit soon. smile My 1GB DDR RAM and 2GHz Athlon should be sufficient, but it's that damn graphics card. man, I wish I had the $$ to get a 256MB brand new beauty. frown

6765  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DVD's here and overseas on: July 15, 2004, 05:59:49 PM
If Manimal were to hit DVD in R4 only, then talk to me. smile

Actually I think Home Theater Forum and The Digital Bits (the two best DVD sources online, IMO) have talked about this and I think the consensus is they don't get it either. For example, Japan recently got some of the most killer packaging ever for the Alien saga - the case was literally an Alien head with a clear skull so you can see all the discs inside. There's also the R2-only Borg cube for the Star Trek series which was also gorgeous. smile

Why the bloody hell we don't get the cool packaging is beyond me. and don't point to the foamy Evil Dead SE packaging - that doesn't count at all.
6766  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bethesda Softworks to publish Fallout 3!!! on: July 12, 2004, 09:14:01 PM
Well, the flip-side to it is that Bethesda isn't exactly swimming in a sea of red ink and bottom lines, so they can take their time and get it right. From what I recall from GG, kathode who posts over there was a huge Fallout fan and he's one of the Bethesda guys. I can see these guys really fleshing out the world, and the thought of Fallout in the Morrowind engine (or something better than that) makes me just all kinds of Warm & Fuzzy(tm). The Fallout universe in that kind of mod-able universe alone should get people excited.

What makes it so much fun? CoH looks like an absolute blast, which is why I'm interested, but SWG just killed me in the long run. Great concept, horrible execution with the most over-developed interface and grinding system I've ever seen. But I never did play EQ. So what sets WoW so far apart, and I'll admit to not being the biggest WC fan around, that it's worth playing?

I'm all for more data, and seldom fall victim to the Forum Effect so prevalent on GG and seeping ever so slowly into CG. smile Right now, the price tag on things has me most concerned so I wait until it either drops, or until everyone is practically foaming at the mouth on how good it is.
6772  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Loving the heck out of Spider-Man 2 on: July 12, 2004, 07:09:17 PM
I found the arcade by accident (though I thought it was from an early mission) and you go in and do Spidey moves in the form of an '80's arcade game. You get so far in one, you unlock another. I got to one point that I couldn't beat and went off on something else.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still having a lot of fun with it, but there are just a slew of things I'm noticing with it that take away from the polish. Were it more of a "complete" game, then it would be my GOTY candidate right now. I guess the allusion would be the issues some people had with KOTOR on Xbox last year and why it was undeserving of all of the GOTY praise it got. Just a thought.

Those buoy tokens are tough buggers to come by though. I've picked up over a dozen of them and those took a while. I've completed the Hint token collecting (some of which are brutally funny), but I've not found any of the Hideout tokens. I guess 'cause they're hidden and all that, right? smile Any thoughts on where to start grabbing those? If they're story-related, bear in mind that Dr. Octavious still hasn't become Doc Ock for me yet.

6776  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Loving the heck out of Spider-Man 2 on: July 12, 2004, 01:41:37 PM
I'm in Chapter 7 right now (finished the arena maze with the dork on the jetpack last night) and I'm really starting to see the flaws. The controls are good, but the responsiveness to the controls is lacking. I'll swing into the side of a building and just float there, sticking a jump is kinda tough when you catch on the side of a building, and it's amazing how quickly you can swing into a building, go into a wall run, and be heading straight down instead of up. That's to mention the draw rate problems, or other random bugs and glitches that are showing a game that needed at least another couple of weeks of polish. And the less said about the water missions the better. :twisted:

I'm glad I didn't pay full price, and for $20 I'm still having fun despite the dozens of problems. Am I alone in thinking this?

Very true. Sadly, you can't pimp your cell mates out, but maybe they're saving that for the sequel. slywink

Man, I love "Escape From Butcher Bay." The more I'm playing Spider-Man 2, the more I'm realizing just how much polish is missing from that compared to "Riddick."

I watched this also as a kid and loved it. I didn't get freaked out by the effects all that much until Diana showed that's she's the queen of deep throat action. slywink

I also second Michael Ironside as being a great character. Just a really bad guy who figured out that aliens were much worse. I love it. smile
6782  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Spider-Man 2 Dork discussion - Spoilers about movie on: July 08, 2004, 07:26:24 PM
Actually, you could wind up with Dr. Connors turning into the Lizard at the same time that Kraven has come to town to hunt Spider-Man. Then he winds up hunting them both, while Spider-Man tries to save Connors' life/restore him, while avoiding Kraven. smile

Quote from: "Nth Power"
Was that Stan Lee during the first fight who almost got hit by rubble?  It happened so fast I wasn't sure if that was him.


Yup. It was a "blink and you miss him" moment, but that was him. biggrin

Personally, I love the world and villains of the X-Men but I like Spider-Man as a character overall. The villains of Spider-Man just suck when it's not Doc Ock, though. Rhino? WTF is this? "My First Super-Villain", and the best they come up with is someone in Titanium armor that's a little slow in the head? Boy, that's threatening. :roll:
6784  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Spider-Man 2 Dork discussion - Spoilers about movie on: July 08, 2004, 01:23:49 AM
The Bruce.

The "Doc Ock wakes up" sequence which had me and my two friends in hysterics laughing, while everyone else was terrified.

The zoom on the chainsaw

"How about Dr. Strange?"
"Nah, it's taken!"

Jonah's regret about Spider-Man and his immediate about-face. biggrin

Quick eyes will spy the Ashmobile

The gag referencing Tobey's recent back troubles

The fact that the movie set-up Spider-Man 3, 4 and 5 in about 5 seconds a piece.

The next to final shot in the movie, which was about as joyous a moment as I've ever seen, and then the final shot of the movie, which said that Mary Jane knows exactly what she's signed up for

Aunt May's speech about heros, which just grabbed me emotionally. Something, I should add, I didn't think possible anymore.

I cannot begin to say how much I loved this movie. biggrin

Ninja Gaiden could do with far less jumping puzzles, mainly because those are the spawn of SATAN!!!! :evil:

PoP simply pwns NG at every corner in my book, but I still enjoy it. I haven't played it in a while though, which means when I go back to it I'm probably going to have my ass handed to me time and again while I get back up to speed on the moves and such.

6788  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Resident Evil movie trailer on: July 07, 2004, 06:44:42 PM
Eh. There were parts of the first one that I really dug - the commando invasion of the house for instance - but overall I thought it was stupid. Since this movie deals more with the game plot, I'm more interested in seeing this one. Here's hoping Paul "Weak Sauce" Anderson doesn't hose all over it. smile
6789  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prince of Persia - Please Explain on: July 07, 2004, 06:41:40 PM
The atmosphere is what did it for me. I love the fantasy of Perisa in "Arabian Nights," I love the culture of "Lawrence of Arabia," and I kick myself for missing "Hidalgo" in the theater. For me, "Prince of Persia" just swallowed me up in the glorious atmosphere I've been in for a long time. The music, the dust, the sand, the arcitecture, the great dialogue, the prince's arrogance gradually giving way to respect and devotion. This was some of the most entertaining gaming I've ever done, and I loved every second of it.

Games are supposed to be entertaining, there's no question of that. But we all tend to play titles that appeal to something we're interested in. I can't stand football, hence I never play any of the "Madden" series. Does that make them bad games? Nope, just something I'm not interested in. Personally, PoP was some of the best bang for the buck I've played on the consoles, and the thought of the sequel improving on everything later this year has me drooling. biggrin

If you didn't appreciate it, then don't sweat it. I loved it from the bottom of my heart and that's that. It's similar to "Star Wars: Rebellion." Some got it and loved it (like me), others got it and hated it. Each to their own.

Thumbs up from me on this one just in terms of sheer size. For the $20 I got it for, this one has been a solid title. I actually got to play a good chunk of it for a long while this weekend and I can say in spite of the glitches, hiccups, and AI-randomly-going-stupid moments, I've found so much to do and collect it's been great. Not to mention web-slinging all over the place just never gets old. I blew through Times Square the other day and heard, "Lookin' good!" and I just thought, "Sweeeet." biggrin

When I saved last I was riding on top of the El. I've stopped before I go to Dr. Octavias' apartment so it's early yet, but I've gone around stopping crimes and collecting tokens. And letting people drown. Those "save the boat" missions just suck.
