PC Games / Re: What Was Your First Online Gaming Experience?
« on: December 28, 2005, 10:34:24 am »
Hmmm.... I'd have to go Diablo on this one.  Followed shortly by Unreal Tournament, Diablo II, Dark Ages of Camelot, Crimson Skies (xbox), etc.

Yes -- if you play one or the other game you are allowed 8 characters on a single server.  If you have BOTH games - you are allowed 12.

Since there is 11 servers you can have LOTS of characters out there....

Most of my villiains are on Virtue or Champion.

I'm still deep into the game... Check out my blog and you can see several Rogue's Gallery entries  where i show some of the characters and costumes that I've seen lately.  Some are QUITE  impressive.  Others range from the weird to disturbing....

For me? City of Villains...

With the Cities around, Warcraft hardly gets me to raise an eyebrow...

I've been playing it for a week now.  As a City of Heroes player the character archetypes are playing with my head.  I've a lvl 14 Stalker (Jolly Jester) on Virtue as well as a level 11 Mastermind - Necroxic.    I like the visuals they've done - both in the modified character designs and the world.  I love all the beast-form costume parts, chains, decayed, tattooed, etc.  BEAUTIFUL work.

Portable Games / Re: DS Games?

I just picked up METEOS and reccommend it.  Its unique in graphics, gameplay.  I really like boosting big blocks and hitting the secondary combos to fire second stages on the launches.  Very addictive.

ONE Game has come to my attention -- check out NANOSTRAY.  Made by the makers of Iridiium, this looks to be a SUPER-awesome 3d shooter.  My mouth dropped at the videos -- 3d play over 3d scrolling/rotating backgrounds? ON a DS?  I saw maybe 6 weapon types, and it appears to be in-game switchable.  Even had some cut scenes interlaced in game play if the videos are any indication.  I've already got this one on reserve.

I'm on ALL the time... I've stayed with it and avoided the WoW exodus.  Strangely enough I know of 3 players who've come back to CoH from Wow, Star Wars Galaxies,  etc.

Of Course Issue 5 and City of Villians IS on the horizon

My best characters are on Virtue, but I've been doing some playing on Champion lately...

<shudders>

I grew up on a farm.  No simulation could do it justice - no sore muscles, ever-present manure stench, electric fence shocks, long hours, early mornings, and general chaos. etc. 

I stay FAR AWAY from such horror sims...   I'll go back to something nice and gentle like Resident Evil...

Portable Games / Re: Is the PSP to expensive?
« on: April 24, 2005, 09:13:03 am »
To me it looks delicate - uncovered -- fragile.  Add that to its price?  And yeah.

But I've gotten a Sony PDA that was released at over twice that.  Trick is that it does a lot of the same things.  As long as it keeps working I don't need a PSP to play videos.  And the fact that Sony did an abrupt 180 and left the PDA market with practically NO warning, leaving all current users with no replacements, few accessories, and vanishing support makes me leary about ANYTHING Sony anymore...

When the dead pixel complaints started coming out - I shyed back even more...

I've used my PDA to capture video, and when played back she'll bark at herself...   (see http://omnitron.textamerica.com/?_ctgry=1600 for examples)

I've seen a pic of it in a magazine (GamePro? EGM?).  Looked neat - but it looked like it was SD card based, which slides in what looks like a normal GBA card.  Side mounted ? (meaning you have to remove the playan to change SD cards...)

With the PSP out there, having this around COULD indeed make the DS and GBA more attractive to some high end users.  Even if they charged 50 bucks for it...   I've a PDA and compress videos to it on occasion.

Portable Games / Re: Metroid Pinball confirmed
« on: April 24, 2005, 08:56:30 am »
I like Pinball games, and one of the first things I thought of is a twin screen pinball game.  Pinball games are usually the multiple single screen types (Mario Pinball, Kirby Pinball, Muppet, House of the Dead) , sometimes segmented or tiered sub-fields that do not scroll.  But some other games (Pokemon, Pinball Fantasies?) do scroll following the ball (unless you go multiball).   Tall single boards are more like the orginal flavor of pinball.  Once they get the engine right - they could easily have a series of these games...

Metroid as subject matter --- well its better than still another Pokemon game.  I would have liked to see something original.

Some of these remind me of our current dog - small with the dark and tan colors.  I wonder how she'll react if I'd play this and it starts barking...

Console Games / Re: Xbox 360... or the Playstation 3?
« on: April 24, 2005, 08:44:24 am »
I like the xbox, BUT not having backward compatibility is a big negative.  I'll be waiting to see IF they give it that capability in the add on peripherals, and what the total cost is, and if there is anything game wise that REALLY makes me want to get it.   Halo and Crimson Skies were the first that made me move toward it. 

I'm just not going to rush out for it.  Not after having my first Xbox die after only 13 months of use.  Come ON! I've still got a working Saturn for crying out loud...

TV / Re: The Screen Savers is dead
« on: April 11, 2005, 10:42:41 pm »
I've been a Tech Tv watcher for a long time - and only a casual viewer of G4.   Almost all the good shows of Tech Tv are gone... No technical device reviews - no industry news, no help call ins.   Lose your best hosts?  Lets move people from San Francisco to Los Angeles and then can them within a month or so.    WHAT are they thinking?

And what are we getting ? One on Cars and Girls?

Their latest ad campaigns have made it seem like everyone on Attack of the Show is involved with illegal web activities -- And the new host of Cheat! on one episode I watched talked of shoplifting something in one script. X-Play scripts seem to be getting more and more anti-Republican with at least one jab every show or so.   

I'm seriously irked at Comcast.
