After a semi-slow summer the big games are starting to appear. First up is Chris Taylor's new Dungeon Siege II for the PC ... find out if it's a winner or a stinker. Oh yeah, I also cover these stories as well:

Posted one of those long comments. Haven't done one in a while, or listened to maybe the last three episodes.
Too busy working... and moving into a new house.

Nice stuff. I didn't expect much on Spore. It's a relief to know I didn't miss something (I'd hate to be out of touch), but disappointing when you think about how the details of the game or going to be so lightly sprinkled for a long while now.

Thanks for giving me something to do too. I was bored out of my mind.


(NOTE: For fun lately, I've been playing San Andreas over again except with cheats. It can make for some interesting moments.
Besides that, it's also pretty interesting to turn on "Flying Cars" and fly up as high as you can, then turn off the cheat.
You might do one hell of a bounce when you hit the ground.)

When I try to download it on iTunes, it downloads 1 min 17 sec and then stops. I've tried deleting it and unsubscribing and resubscibing it but still I only get 1:17. What the hack is going on?!!! I am really starting to get frustrated.  >:( The link on the front page only downloads a small portion as well. Any ideas?  ???

Not sure, I just checked and the whole file is up there. And I just downloaded it again no problem. Perhaps the site was down during that time in which you were trying to download it. I would restart your computer and try again (if you keep trying in the same browser it might try to load a cached version).

I played that rouge game i hate it but only because I'm no good best I did was level 2 before hobgoblin gets me (where is spider-man when you need him)  I would have done well the next time round but I walked into a room with like 10 enemies in it they all swarmed me. I got passed the letter E then a letter S another E then this I came and frooze me.

I change that I like it now I made level 5 then some centaur ruined my fun

Well I just let my computer sit over night and still 1:17. I am completely baffled.

Well I figured it out, I had to delete all my temp files and stuff. Thanks anyway.

Yeah was an alright one... if i'm honest i'm getting really into GeeksOn now, but it's nice to hear a podcast from Steve again.  Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 were interesting...

You make me sad Janos. :'(

I do admit that GeeksOn is quite good. I would love to add a couple of other people to the the show and have guest commentators like GeeksOn does, but yet my friends don't seem to want to join me. And most of the gaming friends can't (because of NDA agreements). So I do my best...

I still love your podcasts, Steve.  But i just love the conversations they have at GeeksOn... and their Star Wars spoof was hilarious.  Don't get me wrong, i don't dislike GamingSteve.com (on the contrary, i visit virtually everyday), but i'm really getting sick of the hot coffee fiasco, World of Warcraft coverage, etc. to be perfectly honest!

Ah, okay. Well, Hot Coffee should be done, and World of Warcraft ... well, I will try to cut that down a bit. I'll try to concentrate on other games which will get a lot easier as the new games are released in the next few months. But would you rather hear about WOW or Madden?

Neither, to be honest!

I like GeeksOn to, of course I like Gaming Steve to.

I haven't heard GeeksOn.. but I did listen to the newest podcast and enjoyed every minute of it. I think I could just listen for hours. It made my car ride go quicker. My only disappointment was that I didn't win the Nintendodog prize on the Guess that game and I knew the answer. I really wanted it too. Good job Steve.

Nice podcast...the GameTap sounds really interesting, I'll have to look into it once its released. I also might try to buy gold...

I brought some WoW gold not so long ago, 100g for NZ$19, I brought it via trademe, which is New Zealand's version of eBay.
I was told it would take no more than 12 hours to deliver the 100g. I e-mailed the guy my details, he said he would put through the order now, and within about 6-8 hours i recieved the gold.
Then I was able to buy my mount  ;D

very easy process, would be happy to use it again.

Guys! It's not THAT hard to get 1000G for WOW especially if you are in a good guild. I have 14G right now on my lvl 23 alt. After you hit 60, the raid instances drop money, and rares and epics like CRAZY. Everyone can get a piece of the dough. You know what? since you used the "bought" gold in the AH, it's the people who do these raid instance runs and sells the rare drops gets your money in the end. So in a way, you are just giving us money. That's fine with me  ;)

Well, no, I used my gold to buy a mount, so effectively no one gets my gold, and the left over gold I have is still sitting in my bank.

I work full time and have a social life so I dont have time to play hardcore and grind for gold. And I live in New Zealand, so when I play at night, usually 8-10pm, its like 3 or 4am on the servers, so there is hardly anyone online to group/raid/interact with. I spend most of my time doing solo quests anyway.
The only instance I've done is SM about 4 or 5 times and cant see myself doing any more any time soon.

However, before I decided to purchase the gold, I did try very hard to earn it all, I got up to about 25-30g, but gave up because it was just taking to long and I wanted a mount.

I love Geekson.  I will admit it.  I love Gaming Steve and as my very first Podcast, it will always have a special place in my heart.  But I don't see them as competing.  It's very cool seeing something from Steve's point of view and then from the Geeks if they mention it.  I loved how all of you guys were just completely wiped out by E3.  Their forums don't have quite the zing that these do so I'm still popping around here far too much.  (Go Creavolutionism!)  But this week's podcast was very fun.  I just about killed myself trying to figure out the sound.  I want that cape!  I had a lot of fun with Dungeon Siege although once I beat it, I was done.  Hats got very doofy very quickly.  Anyway, back to reloading the forum pages to see if something new has been said.  Ciao! -leeman

Just re-listended to this episode. Holy Crap! So excited about Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2!
I keep forgetting they're being made...I can't wait to see how mind-blowing the cut-scenes in these games look. I mean, the originals were absolutely fantastic! I actually downloaded all of Diablo 2's vids and made them into one movie to watch over and over again. I actually drew up Tyrial and helped my dad design the angel in his tattoo off of him.

So Excited!
