6761  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So I broke Return of the King tonight... on: May 31, 2004, 06:02:04 AM
I'm playing away on the XBox version of Return of the King tonight and I'm on the Pellenore Fields level, where you have to run between sides of a valley and take down the big elephant-things, while running through an army of enemies in between. Truly a masterpiece in terms of pissing me off, but I digress. Anyway, I run down into the valley at one point and the camera gets stuck focusing on where I came down into the valley. I naturally get sucked into a huge fight that goes off-camera and I'm hitting buttons like a madman and trying to move in the direction the camera is facing, but damn if that camera doesn't just sit there. Doesn't move at all. I somehow managed to not get killed, but brought myself back into frame and then went to the other side of the frame and then the camera moves again. Ugh.

Add to that the fun with the Witch King and I'm hating life on that mission.

Sadly, because Sony didn't want ANY of the storyline to be 'ruined' the game wasn't playable at E3.  That said, the gameplay that I have seen is pretty awesome.  I'm supposed to get my hands on this before release, so I'll give you the skinny before you have to lay the cash on the counter.  I figure it'll be soon as the movie is coming up REEEAAAAL fast.


It wasn't playable at all this year? Huh. That's odd because last year Eldon and I got to check it out on the floor and what shell of it was available was frickin' awesome. Climbing to the top of the antenne on the Empire State Building, leaping off and just falling forever, then at the last second shooting out a web and swinging on to new streets defines "cool". If they've made it similar to GTA then I'm so there I'm going to break the sound barrier getting to the store on release day. smile

Will all the ripping going on over at GG re: EB of late, I think I'll stick with the local Frys/BestBuy/Circuit City swoop whenever it hits. My humble view is Nov 9 might slip a little, but then again I'm still bitter over Sept. 30. biggrin

Rage (Adam Sensoy) +1. I guess I'll play along with this, though I'd also like my GG rating to be considered as I'm at 40+ there. biggrin
6767  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Where will/did you pre-order Halo2? on: May 21, 2004, 02:11:41 PM
To pre-orders I say, "BAH!" I will simply mow down all the tweens standing between me and Halo 2 goodness and stand triumphant in the Blood Gulch once more!

Holy crap guys, it was a joke to begin with aimed squarely at the guys who I was with last year. Chill this out, and if you want to fight it out over whether women should be objectified or not, then take it to EBG where it wouldn't be out of place.  :lol:

No argument there Farley. If you recall the flick "No Escape" with Ray Liotta, there was a funny story told about that at its premier at the USA Film Fest in Dallas. Producer Gale Ann Hurd (producer of Aliens) was initially told by studio chiefs they wanted a woman in the movie. When she asked why, she was told they wanted to put a chick on the poster to "draw in... um, the women out there."

Is it wrong to be more interested in real pr0n than pixelated pr0n? What are your thoughts ATB?  :twisted:
6772  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Booth Babes- Methinks Thou Can Do Better on: May 13, 2004, 07:01:29 PM
I mean really guys, the latest shots of Diana Kaufman being all pixelated? This is the babe we collectively drool over. I'll admit that the jaw-dropper of her and the blonde from yesterday was great, but that body deserves better care! Do her justice! Do her for justice if the situation warrants! Do her for me! For me!!!!

Hey, everyone knows Booth Babes are an integral part of E3!

Games and babes in one place....   Cool


And the more shots of the Booth Babes being bored out of their minds the funnier it is. smile

Rage, got your e-mail and I sent a reply this morning. The game's sitting on my desk and I'm heading to the post office during lunch today so it'll go out then. Thanks!

Roll-hop around constantly. When it jumps up on the platform, dive under it to prevent from getting hurt. When it jumps down again, move as close to it (as quickly) as possible, then go behind it, and clobber.


Well that might help except for one thing. When he hops on the ledge and I get under him, he bats me out from there with his wings. I never thought to get behind him, which makes sense now that I type that out. I may have to try that. :oops:
6777  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The State of Breasts in Gaming on: May 12, 2004, 03:30:09 PM
It's simply the devs drawing up what they would most like to see in their lives before they die. Odds are good that will remain a fantasy for many of them.  :twisted:

Done that mate, currently stuck on the boss monster where you grab the large dagger, plant it in the floor, then this big honkin' bone thingie with wings jumps up, and starts smacking me around. smile
6779  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / what will sell the Xbox2? on: May 11, 2004, 03:51:01 PM
My philosophy regarding consoles is "I'll only buy the system after it's been out for 1 year, and if there are exactly 5 games or more that I simply can't live without playing." Hence, I bought an XBox long after it'd been out, my PS2 I bought two years after it came out, and while I was tempted to buy a GameCube for cheap-o, I can just borrow my friends' GC and play Zelda then someday.

Regarding next year's consoles, there better be some doozy games upon release, or once again I'll be staying at home laughing at the "first-nighters" standing in line in the cold. smile

Just wait until Chapter 5. I hope you have a spare TV because you might throw your controller through it during one segment. smile

Hey Rage, I have The Suffering for PS2 if you want to trade that for Beyond Good and Evil for XBox. Shoot me a line at [email protected] if you want to trade. Thanks!

Then you must not have spent $50 on "Enter the Matrix" like I did. Forever more will I want to lynch the Wachowski (former) Brothers.

I can say with certainty that DMC2 was the worse waste of the $50.  I knew Enter the Matrix was going to suck because it didn't get enough development time (it HAD to be out at the time of Reloaded) and was done by Shiny who had been very quiet on the gaming front for years.

DMC2 was to continue the greatness of DMC, but it failed miserably.  Luckily I didn't spend $50 on Enter the Matrix or I'm sure I would be in the same boat as you on this biggrin


Ahh... so it was the foreknowledge of suckage versus the expectations of continuing greatness... On that front I can see your point. I would, however, argue with the greatness of "Devil May Cry" due to it being a solid game, but way, way, way too far over the top camp at times. What made it worse was it seemed the devs were taking things seriously when Dante would scream out, "TRISH!!!!" I just busted a gut whenever he would do that. biggrin

Matrix... I'll admit I should have seen it coming. The game looked like a mountain of suck at E3 and it was right about to be released then.  Ahh well.

6785  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A big thank you! on: May 06, 2004, 04:23:43 PM
It's just a crying shame they killed so many of the great ones during the movie. I don't think I've had so many of my dreams killed in a single two hour period as I did watching that in the theaters. And Rodimus Prime was a be-yotch, for the record. biggrin

You know, I got this when I first bought my XBox and just never got into it. Partly because I was so into Halo at the time. I've long since traded/sold it but I always wondered whether it was worth getting in to.
