Did you play it multiplayer with 3 other opponents (or at least 2 others)?  That's when the game truly shines.  Trash talking, ninja-roping, worm slapping, Holy Hand Grenade throwing good times.

Maybe that's what I missed. 

The immense satisfaction of sending a worm to their doom with a benign little prod...definitely a game to play multiplayer.

From that list: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Settlers of Catan, Worms.  headbang

FWIW a coworker heard his local Walmart was holding 28 units for last Sunday morning.  They're a 24-hour store, and he was able to just walk in at 12:10am and buy one without a crazy subzero wait in line.

You know, I'm surprised to say it, but I think this game might just drive me to finally buy a HDTV.

Is it the Pelican System Selector Pro?  I've had the for about a year and a half and it's done a great job for me with no noticeable video degradation.
Can you find that Pelican Pro unit at a place like Best Buy?  Or should I just get it from newegg?

Pretty sure I've seen the updated Pelicans at Best Buy.  I got mine from Fry's.  However, I would guess that Newegg would have them cheaper so it might be better to get it from them anyway. 

Normally I'd just go with Newegg, but lately UPS and Fedex have been playing "ignore the 'please leave the package here so I don't have to drive 45 minutes to the docks to get it' slips" with all the tenants in my building.  When possible, it's easier to just Best Buy it on my way home.

Ok not sure if this will help but is your coax cable into the tv coming from the cable box?  If so you may want to try bypassing the box, going from the wall outlet right to the tv.  I'd check it out myself but while I have a Vizio tv I use Directv for my service.

I could do that, but would I be able to get the digital channels that way?

Are cable digital channels that different than over-the-air digital?  This is all foreign to me, but I'm not sure I understand why you wouldn't be able to get digital cable channels directly if you can get digital channels with rabbit ears.

I thought someone posted about this and another game?  If I recall, the discussion got sidetracked from The Settlers.

I remember someone had posted some Settlers DS information from the shiny thing over there on the copy machine kind of looks like Bob Hope.  I think it's a paperclip that got chewed up in the machine but--it does!  It does look like Bop Hope!  Look at it from the side, no the other side.  See the chin?  Uncanny.  I wonder if we could make something from this on ebay.  I don't like using Paypal, though.  I hear they're run by Libertarians.  I don't trust my money with a bunch of quiet book-scanners.  What are you talking about, political party?  Don't try and trick me with your politics mumbo jumbo, I know a Libertarian when I see one.  Like that day in the park...

Where do you find the schedule for game releases? I would like to see what I missed.

Upcoming stuff gets reported on by the various gaming news sites. 

As to what you've missed I'm sure there is a site that has archived everything but it's pretty easy just to browse through it on the Wii itself. 

I'm at work or I would browse the Wii. I will just check IGN and see if they have it. Thanks!
There's always Wikipedia's list of virtual console titles.

Another option, if you don't mind permanently attaching something to the Wii, is to get one of those super-adhesive thingies designed for securing laptops or computers, like the Belkin Bulldog.

I only managed about 15 minutes with it, but man it OOZES style.  The music is phenominal and the animation style is gorgeous.  Can't wait to get more time with it.

Ok, I don't care that you've only seen 15 minutes of it, that was all I needed to be convinced to buy this.

Where's the cat picture for "Who gives a crap?"  I've never downloaded an XBLA game.  I don't know why you would spend $400 on a console to play sucky ancient arcade games.  I mean, great if they got 'em, but I'm not spending money on it.

Do you feel the same about people paying $10-15 bucks on simple PopCap games, card games, or other budget titles to play on their $2000 PCs?

First off, nobody bought a $2000 PC to play PopCap games.  Second, simple PopCap games, etc. rarely come up as a topic of discussion on these forums.

That's the whole idea, I dont think anyone bought a $400 Xbox just to play Live downloads.  But once you have that expensive PC or 360, and something fun is offered for $10, it's tempting to get.

I'm not sure why it's relevant whether or not we talk about PopCap games here, but FWIW it's from these forums that I learned about Bookwork Adventures, Insaniquarium, Oasis, Heavy Weapon, Zuma, several Breakout clones, and other fun little budget priced diversions.  But even if we didn't talk about any budget titles here, I think the parallel to Live games still stands.

Quote from: denoginizer on January 24, 2007, 01:40:23 AM

"Judging the consoles based upon a broad perspective that includes software now available and coming in the future an entirely different argument could be formulated.......Though the launch software hasn't blown anyone away, the 360's launch titles were equally unimpressive, and the system will certainly mature."

So they are awarding the best console of 2006 based on games that will come out in the future?

Wow.

And linux, because "the availability of supported Linux distributions for the console will also develop and will likely bear entirely unexpected fruit in future."

Everyone is chomping at the bit to see what Linux has in store for the PS3.  "Hot damn, a console that will support Linux distributions!" they say.  Parents ask their teenagers, "Which console do you want for Christmas?" and the kids always say, "Give me a console with Linux-based productivity packs! YAY!"

NiM$ is still ok to use, however.

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

10475  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.

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.
