Somewhat interested in Hotel Dusk, but will probably wait for a few more reviews.
Same here, eagerly awaiting impressions from you folks who're planning to grab it. smile
10162  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Circuitcity.com HAS Wii's NOW UPDATE: Sold Out on: January 19, 2007, 03:31:11 PM
Thanks again, Crabbs. It just arrived, and is sitting there, taunting me, slowing down the clocks at the office.

If you're already at work...is it too late to call in sick?

I'm also tempted to see if I can book one of the building's giant conference rooms with a 100" presentation screen for a few hours...

Woop woop woop, Wii just arrived at my work, so I think I'm going to forgo sleep this weekend and have a nice little Zelda marathon, with some Sports intermissions.

I'm about as big a Total Annihilation fanboy as they come, and sadly I'm going to be waiting for reviews and impressions on a game that, in another timeline, I easily could've spent $90 on day 1 for a fanboy collector's edition with goofy figurine, pin, and cloth map.

1. 360 Controller
2. 6-button Genesis controller
3. NES Max

I've only skimmed the thread, but it sounds like people are marrying their PS3s in order to get their insurance to pay for the 3rd party umbilical cables.  They should be ashamed of themselves.

Starcraft 3 may wow you with it's 3d holographics and motion sensing control, but IMO it still doesn't match the strategic options that Supreme Commander offered over 10 years ago.  I tell you, all these RTS games these days are real time tactical games.  You want strategy?  Fire up a Windows XP emulatotron and waste no time hyperloading Supreme Commander from underdogs.china/|o35*(|\\pqr.co
10171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: SSX Blur on: January 18, 2007, 04:34:48 PM
I'm excited to see how this one turns out.  It's good to see developers embracing the Wiimote instead of just tacking it on to the old control systems.

10174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii....first impressions. on: January 17, 2007, 09:14:23 PM
My first impressions:

The Zelda box indicates that it would be very fun if the disc were able to be spun rapidly while a beam of light drew information encoded onto the surface.  Thumbs up.

The one nunchuk I found feels solid, is easily wieldable in either hand, and the jack at the end of the cord only hints at the kinds of attachable accessories that would enhance (perhaps greatly enhance) the thrills.

All in all I'm fairly impressed.  I imagine that my enjoyment will increase tenfold if I am able to find a Wii on Sunday, but I dunno...it's pretty fun as-is.

If I could find a Wii, Wario Ware would be tempting as well.  icon_cry

After 2-3 attempts, I still haven't managed to make it through all of Star Trek I.  Khan is probably the best as far as actual quality as a film, but Star Trek IV (where they go to San Francisco) is my personal favorite.  Even people who generally don't like sci-fi movies can have a good time with that one.

Maybe it's graphic could be a little less prominent.

My suggestion would be link similar and next to 'Report to moderator'.  Or just the red X graphic without the word Ignore (you could mouse over if you don't know what it represents).

I don't think it should be more prominent than Send this user a PM and related site functions.

I'd rather it (was gone, but barring that I'd rather it) was tucked away so that you have to view someone's profile to ignore them.  As it is you can just toggle it on and off like it's no big deal.

I find it interesting that any time someone says something embarassing, controversial, or false, it's because a reporter took them out of context.

This just in: A recent message from Autistic Angel indicates that he finds "it" embarrassing.  Whatever the "it" is referring to, perhaps an addiction to Windex, perhaps an attraction to hairy women, this reporter cannot say.

Nice, I've been meaning to check this out.  I never played Freespace (I may actually have FS2 somewhere, new in the box).

Is Freespace more like Elite, or more like Wing Commander?

Elite.
Fuh?

Fuh is right!  I was thinking about Freelancer.  I change my vote to: "More like Wing Commander!"

The real person they are giving the finger to is MS. Having this come out at the same as the 360 version of GH2 is like a stab in the back.

This definitely falls true for me.  I was planning to buy the 360 version on day 1, but if PS2 expansion packs are coming out already, I can just take a wait and see attitude watching how the downloadable 360 songs pan out.

Quote from: Gratch on January 12, 2007, 02:33:46 PM

Admittedly, I am pretty bad at TBS games, but I've always had particular trouble with the Disciples series.  It has always seemed very unbalanced to me.  You start maps with low level characters, and the only way to build up those characters is by defeating monsters to gain XP.  However, there are a very limited number of monsters that low level characters can actually defeat.   So your only options are to either build up a single uber-group, or try running around with multiple groups of under-powered characters. 

I've had a lot of fun with Disciples, but this is my biggest beef as well.  I don't like being forced to the uber-group strategy.

Is there any way you can blow up just that circled part?  The kanji (the more complicated characters) are hard enough to read as it is in that scan, but it would be a huge help if you could make those little symbols above the chinese-looking characters legible.  (They're sort of like cheat sheet phonetic spellings of the characters.)

I can try and put some more time in this, but can you specify what kind of information you really need to know?  It'll be too time consuming to do the whole thing.  What do you need besides the controls?

I'm going to also premptively request that you have a high resolution picture of the top right part of the controls page, as well as page 22, and 23. smile

They have panels over the ice.  The ice is always there; just covered up.

So how do they keep the ice frozen? 

It is cooled from below.  There are some base layers of ice, another layer with the lines and team logos, some more layers, and then the top layer that gets melted and refrozen every time the zamboni comes by.
10194  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Basketball floor to icerink. on: January 11, 2007, 06:28:32 PM
This was covered in an inane bar argument on Cheers.  They ended up breaking into the Boston Garden and pulling up some of the basketball flooring to see the ice underneath.  Then they didn't put it back properly, and in the evening's game I think someoene on the Celtics tripped on it and lost the game.

IIRC the guy posted it to his blog, just as he threatened, and he was eventually contacted by someone with a brain and he got his money back.
