to fly a heli you use R2 to go up, L2 to descend, the right joystick to go forward which makes you go faster and to go backward which will slow you down, and you can use it to go left and right at an angle. You also use the left joystick if you want to turn left or right but still fly at a specific level (aka you stay at the same angle instead of turning at an angle)


i'm not sure if that's single player or multiplayer. you could probably just set up a multiplayer match that just has you in it and practice a bit until you get it.

i was hoping it would be on consoles. my computer can't properly handle oblivion on great settings, it would crap itself if i put this game on it.

it seems like it's not so much a game as it is a toy. i imagine that it's kind of like what we wanted to see in Spore when you come down to a planet; you change the topography of the land and see how it affects the population on it. I don't care that it's on console (though i'd prefer it on PC, if my PC could handle that), i'm excited to maybe get what was my most anticipated not-included feature of Spore (albeit a speculated feature).

I downloaded it, and gave it a shot. i gotta say, it's real confusing since I've never played victoria one, but going through the basic tutorials was helpful. i guess i just dont understand the more intricate stuff. as soon as i start, 100 percent of some job field becomes unemployed in some part of the country and i dont know how to help them. I can't get my armies to be completely resupplied, which is a tremendous inconvenience because they lose soldiers when they're just standing there. they got back to full ranks after peace was declared. I don't understand how to affect production, or what direction i should push it in. i guess that's my fault though, since i didnt sit through all the tutorials. i MIGHT get it depending on the price after release.

So I recently got gifted Sims 3 + Ambitions + World Adventures and I must say I am quite liking it so far.

does world adventures do anything except introduce a vacation system?
And does either one of them give you new objects, or is that solely handled on the EA store now?

I could do either. I'm leaving today, though. I'll send you my information now.

If anyone has yet to play the first Mass Effect and did not buy it for $5 off Steam yesterday, I know longer wish to know you

I wasn't going to buy it until you posted that. Then I suddenly remembered trying to buy it for 20 dollars on eBay and getting outbid. If i would spend 20 on it when I had less money, I'd surely spend 5 now. Too bad I can't play it until I get back from vacation in 6 weeks. I'm actually very excited to give it a go.

England are sucking pretty badly in comparison to what people expected, we'll definitely qualify if we beat solvenia on Wednesday, but if not theres going to be a riot.

So if the US beats Algeria and England beats Slovenia, then we're both advancing, right? And since we'd be tied, who would be the 1st seed and who would be 2nd?

USA! USA! We got robbed in the game against Slovenia, though. No idea what that ref was thinking. It seems like if the ref who called the play can't even justify his call, then the ruling shouldn't stand. But that's just me.

About SOCCER being boring: I don't think that it's boring, I think that it's the nature of the game that turns Americans off of it. You have to be paying attention constantly. With other sports that have mass appeal to Americans, like football and baseball, there are long breaks where you can get up, go to the kitchen, and grab a beer without missing much. Even in basketball, scoring is so frequent that it doesn't matter if you miss a couple minutes to get up and take a break from it. But with soccer, you have to constantly pay attention or you could miss the only goal scored in that game. That's just something that I don't think Americans are willing to do. Hopefully someday soon we will, because it'd be great to see our nation of 300 million people put together a team that can beat France or Britain's 60 million.

Hopefully the recent influx of Latin American culture will bring that to the US.

I'm totally down for this, but I'm leaving tomorrow to go on a European vacation for 6 weeks and I won't be able to send it out until I get back, around about the 4th of August. Can I still do it? I live in New York, USA, btdubs.

I saw it, and I almost cried at the end. I have some female friends who saw it, and they didn't. Am I alone on that?

Haha, you're not the only one. But thanks to a weak euro, hardware prices have been steadily increasing the last 2 months...

Just in time for my 6 week European vacation!

Has anyone else been having really ridiculously bad connection problems? I've been trying since the game came out, and I've only been able to get one good connection. I've forwarded ports, unplugged the router and all that crap that they suggest, but it still won't work. I think a part of the problem is that I can't find the UPnP setting on my linksys WRT54G. It's real frustrating when half the reason I bought the game is for multiplayer, and after a month they still haven't gotten it to work.

EDIT: just for further information, the internet is hooked up to a modem, that goes into the linksys wireless router, then we have a cable that runs downstairs and into another router that handles my xbox and my dad's computer. Does anyone have suggestions?

EDIT:Ok, so I was able to get online for a couple hours yesterday by unplugging everything and plugging it back in. I didn't have any problems at all for a while, then all of a sudden the internet **** the bed. The internet for the whole house, for a couple of hours. I tried again today, but the NAT was set back to moderate. Is there any more permanent solution than just unplugging everything all the time?

I just saw the strangest random encounter...

2 asian looking dudes near a tent and a whole bunch of TNT. One says, 'One little spark and we go BOOM!' (or something like that.) Then they blew up. Large bang. Bodies go flying.

I just saw that same event while i was bear hunting! 2 dudes (these guys were white) in a random spot in the woods, carrying dynamite over to a table. One of them says to the other, "one more load and we can go home" I walked to a safe distance so i could shoot the dynamite and watch it blow up, and as i was walking away, they blew up. BAM! cuff links and asscheeks all over the place.
