No.

I should really fix the other computer in this basement... But then I'd have to fix the ethernet cord I cut to get some wire to fix my Guitar Hero controller. I'll need to buy a connector and attach it to the new end, lol. It might not be long enough now either. :/

Wow, the other thread didn't even last 5 months. 100 pages in 128 days.

So I think I'm renting a tux sometime soon since prom is next Saturday. I've never worn an actual tux, so it should be interesting.

Bah, I didn't go to prom. Around here, it's like, $90 a ticket, per person. Not just that, but I don't dance. I don't bother with that stuff, because I don't enjoy it like I'm supposed to. I hate formal things, too. To me, prom would have just been fake. I'd have been lying if I said I wanted to go, or that I would enjoy it. So what's the point of wasting $90 I don't have (plus god knows how much more it might cost for other expenses related to it) to go to something I won't enjoy and watch other people enjoy something I'm not?

snap son

Anyway, I forgot to mention that yes, the identical twins were female. Not particularly hot but I'd do 'em. One was kind of more sober than the other and was like pulling away but the other was totally into it and kept bringing the other one closer. XD

Also there were like 15 guys around them all with their cellphones out taking pictures and videos. I've tried searching on youtube but no luck.

Anyway I figured I'd update you all on my life since you all care so much:

-Going to college at SUNY Oswego
-totally fucked things up with a girl in the past month and has left me depressed
-started playing IIDX again since I can burn games and brought my controller up, and pretty much am already right where I left off (can pass most 7s, some 8s [this is going by L7/7K/A ratings, haven't gotten used to the 1-12 stuff yet])

Umm yeah other than that my life has been pretty boring tbh. I'm thinking of working out a bunch over the summer after school and my vacation and then joining the Rugby team next semester.

i swear you were older than me

FACIAL HAIR CAN DO THAT TO A MAN

AND I AINT GOT NONE

FUCK YALL

on the flip side, a friend of mine got me a "hooters energy drink"

the can is awesome, and well, lets hope it doesn't taste like ass.

*edit*

this stuff smells like something you would wash your hair with...the taste...is actually pretty decent.  i mean some almost all energy drinks (example, rockstar) just aren't palatable, and i have to pour the rest of the damn thing down the drain.  this stuff, ill be able to finish off with reletave ease.

actually, every time i take a drink, its like sticking my nose in say my ex girlfriend's hair, which is decently pleasant.  its just...a very odd smell for a drink.

*edit*

ok, the smell is just too much, i could only finish off half the can.  i can't drink a beverage that doesn't smell edible, regardless of taste!

snap son, if you can handle it, get monster hunter freedom 2.

its the only psp game i own, odd considering i don't own a psp.  but if you manage to play it solely for the ad hoc multiplayer(hard for me to mention a better multiplayer game), you won't be disappointed.  other than that, its probably the hardest game ever, and its not forgiving...at all.

i guess crysis core, metal gear acid/portable ops are also worth mentioning

ALSO, i don't like to admit it, but im starting to like this battlestar galactica stuff.  i first started watching it because there was nothing better on, and all the show is, is drama, and im not much for drama.  but i guess its pretty aight.  id still rather be watching stargate atlantis/sg1/any version of star trek.

Helpful hint to the other guys out there: Don't get really fucking drunk and get in the car with some kid and your friends who are all really drunk and then go to some random guy's house and text your ex for like 3 hours detailing how you both cheated on each other even though you wanted to get back together and then ending up hating her and yourself for it and cutting all contact.

:/

Shit last night was one of the worst nights in my life. I also had to walk home like 2 miles with just a t-shirt on in fucking 30 degree weather and strong winds, and fell asleep on my desk because my female friend was locked out of her room so I gave her my bed, and puked the following morning after waking up at 7 am, and then going to bed again at 11 to wake up again at 2, thus wasting like half my day.

Fuck my life sucks. Getting drunk again tonight though to NUMB THE PAIN.

Ouch. Lucky me, I've got good control of myself, drunk or not. I've never understood why people start texting/calling people when they're drunk... Maybe it's because I don't have a cell, and don't have the mindset that comes with having one, but I just don't get it. In all likelihood, you're just going to make things worse when you text/call people drunk.

Also, I highly recommend you don't drink to numb the pain. That is the sort of shit that leads to either things getting worse, or alcoholism.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: vladgd on April 05, 2008, 05:04:21 PM
only responding due to finding an analogy.

drinking to numb the pain to me, sounds similar to "yea bro, im just going to cut myself to stop the bleeding" or "yes nigga im drinking salt to quench my thirst"

0 + 0 =/= 1

Work tonight was soooo boring and lame. I work two shifts tomorrow, not looking forward to it. I'm planning on waking up early, going on a nice, long bike ride, and then finishing my research paper on why we should retire the penny before going to work at 1:15.

Also, my girlfriend and I got our hair cut at this place at the mall, by this REALLY gay guy who was recommended to us by my ex. He did a really good job with our hair, will upload pics once I have the motivation to. After the past two days (day-long practice Thursday and day-long competition, from 8:30am to 4:30am the next morning, on Friday) I am pretty much beat.

Can't sleep in too late.  I have too much shit to do tomorrow.

Also, I came to the sad realization that if I were to get 10 hours of sleep I would still wind up having more hours invested in work than I would in sleep.  Needless to say, I don't plan on ever pulling a 60 hour work week again.

Lol, well PSPs were known for launching disks when you twisted them just right.

Err...no, they really aren't.

The person who made that video BS'ed that (his index finger was right over the eject slider).  The PSP is solidly built -- you can't twist it just like that.

So my 360 is clearly on the road to failure.  It was behaving EXTREMELY strangely earlier (i.e. random freezes, SCREEN FILLED WITH STATIC AND JUNK (in glorious 1080p), and graphical glitches).  In addition to the odd freezes, I got a hardware failure light (one red segment in the lower-right) and two RRoDs.  I let the console heat up a bit and it ran fine all night, so the board is quite obviously fucked.

Unfortunately, it's very inconsistent with red-ringing, so I'm sort of hesitant to send it back to Microsoft.  I'll probably just let it warm up before using it and send it back when it tanks completely and consistently.  I give it a month, tops.

So my friend's in Dallas for his spring break... he just told me he inadvertently wore his Assassin's Creed shirt to Dealey Plaza, the place where JFK was shot, while visiting it today. What a dumbass XD

Also I finished my argumentative research paper. 1,229 words of glorious anti-circulation-of-the-penny crusading. When I finished I rode my bike to walmart, 4 miles each way. Stocked up on candy to sell at school and bought some snacks. Had to avoid 4 or 5 cops I nearly ran into, got flicked off by some random car at a stoplight, and rode past some really creepy guy wandering in a parking lot. All in all, it was fun, and I feel well-exercised now.

Bah, sounds exactly like my last relationship. The only advice I have for you is that if you guys break up again, and you actually want it to end, then leave it. I made the mistake of getting back with my ex, mostly out of pity, and I ended falling for her again. Naturally, it ended up in a pile of buffalo shit a month later.

Bah, I could never see why people would get back with their ex's. If they break up with you in the first place (or worse, you break up with them), I'd think that either A) there's a pretty decent reason (and it's likely reason enough to stay broken up), or B) one, or both of you is crazy/doesn't understand what they want right now, which is an indication that the other/both of you should stay away.

I just don't get it...

I've been selling ~20-25 pieces of candy ever since the day I started selling them... and I believe I've found a wonderful niche in making money at school.

ok, i loved the original kotor.  i walk into kotor 2 a bit dissapointed, even though the game is basically the same.  too much dark side quests, so what do i do?  roll a dark side caster rather than a light side melee character.

nobody told me how fucking awesome it was to throw force lightning and see about 6 dudes just die, im really enjoying myself in this game so far.  and if i beat it and im not tired of it yet, i may just replay the original kotor as a dark side character, however, i heard casters aren't as viable in that game as they are in this game.

regardless, a screenshot of my current character.  and ignore my retarded looking robes, it just makes it that much more awesome to force lightning people in.

Prom night went like this:

4:00 - I shower, shave, etc. in preparation.
4:40 - I start putting the tux on.
4:50 - I finish putting the tux on. I leave to pick up Kate.
5:00 - I'm at Kate's house, and her mom invites me in for a picture.
5:15 - We're back at my dad's house, and both my parents take pictures of us.
5:30 - We leave the house and go to a sushi place for dinner.
6:30 - We leave the restaurant and head for prom, taking a few detours to ensure we're not early.
7:00 - Prom starts.
7:15 - We get there, go in, get another picture, and then sit and talk with the people who were there.
8:45 - The music starts and the volume progressively gets to an unbearable level.
9:30 - We leave for that reason.
9:45 - We go to Barnes & Noble to hang out. About a third of the conversations from here on out are basically us settling any qualms we've had with each other.
10:30 - We go to my mom's house to make a catapult, which we'd been talking about doing all night. I start building a catapult out of Lego pieces.
10:45 - I finish building a the catapult. We launch a lot of things.
11:30 - Prom ends, but we don't really care at this point.
11:40 - I leave to drop her off at Rocky Horror because she was going to meet with people there.
12:00 - We decide that no one's coming. I take her home. On the way, I tell her that I had fun and miss hanging out with her, and she agreed that we should hang out more.
12:10 - I get home.

Overall, it was a pretty good night. I don't really have an interest in dating Kate anymore because we agreed that we would've made a terrible couple, but now we're good friends again.

why must games do this

kotor 2

im on my way as just my main character to do this part of a mission and...

-out of nowhere i take control of one of my weaker ranged attackers, alone, and i have to fight two boss characters at the same time, they use medpacks, and hurt when they hit...ohh the character i have doesn't have any points into healing, so he can't heal himself with medkits.  basically, activate the mandilorian melee shield, focus on a single target, and prey i don't die.
-back to the main character, i have to fight through some 40+ enemies...in a poison chamber...after which, a poison maze (ok i have a breath mask on which makes the poison ineffective, BUT THATS BESIDES THE POINT)
-then i switch to an enemy character to do other stuff (lots of killing...this part was quite fun actually)
-back to the main character for a while...ohh i get kidnapped (MOTHERFUCKER WHYYYYYY)
-now i take control of said weaker ranged attacker for 2 seconds
-oops now im the shitty tech droid character, alone, for a solo part

basically i have a shitty rescue mission on my hands to get the reason this game is awesome, back. FFUCKKCKCKCKCKCKCKCKCK\

VDSZBDSGFDSFGNFNFSNFSNFNGNGNMFBCFBFDFBFBBSDSBBhbdbsbdbsdbsdbsdbnosdbmsoldbm  nar shaddah is the worst planet ever

all i want to do is run around killing people with force lightning or using my force persuade to do awesome stuff like the following

-force an npc to give me an item i am looking for, and credits equal to its value
-force an npc who is infected with a contagious disease to kill himself as to not spread his disease
-force a woman to sell herself into slavery to be with her enslaved daughter
-force a group of thugs to hand over their weapons, afterwhich jump off a cliff

good fucking jesus, you couldn't do awesome stuff like that in kotor.  my character just screams awesome, and i lurv it.

Nah, she can't reattach it, it was totally crushed. I wonder how many ways that'll affect her life, god, missing a finger. At least it wasn't the thumb or finger though =/

Also, prom was spectacular. I had a wonderful time. Many pictures were taken, much food was eaten and an immense amount of fun was had. Hooray. Now I really want to go to bed, I feel like death. I went to walmart after dropping my girlfriend off and just got home a little bit ago.

you'd be surprised.  my mom has a hand with two fingers which were basically cut in half, so theres two little stubs where fingers were, doesn't hinder her from doing anything. 

missing a hand = tragic

missing a finger = minor inconvienience

hell, all you really need is two fingers and a thumb anyway. not saying i wouldn't be freaked about losing a finger, but its not that bad a loss.

Arg, why is youtube so damn slow. Can't google set the servers up to be as responsive as the google page servers are? Seriously. It's really annoying to get to the site and all of a sudden the pages aren't loading, or are loading with errors, and videos are either not loading at all, or are taking forever to load (and by forever, I mean a 5 minute video may take 20 minutes to load, on fucking highspeed internet, at that.)

:/ I'm thinking Youtube needs an overhaul.

Ouch, that sucks.

Eh, the only part that bums me out about it is that I might miss out on playing GTA4 when it comes out.  I have a new computer to amuse myself with (or at least I will tomorrow, when my hard drives arrive -- I plan to do burn-ins on it tonight).

That should still be under warranty, correct? Either way, good luck with that.

It's out of warranty, but it's within the extended three year RRoD coverage.  Thank goodness.

If it comes back with an HDMI port I'm going to be happy.  VGA is so 90s.

The longest wait is for the box they send you to send it in. Like seriously.

And I know they gave me a totally different 360 back so yeah, it's very possible they'll get you a newer model. HOWEVER, if this happens, it is very likely that you won't be able to use your dlc unless you're connected to Live. Although I'm told if you go into download history and redownload everything, it'll transfer to your new system. I have yet to have my internet go out (although I suppose I could just...unplug the cable...) so I don't know if that's fixed it for me.

to verify, you do need an internet connection to access dlc.

several months back when i was playing 4 player ultimate alliance(friends 360, he sent his in, and got another box back), we couldn't access the dlc characters until we plugged the damn thing into the internets.

speaking of breaking 360's.  the people i know who own a 360, who had theirs rrod, is higher by a good margin than the people who haven't had an rrod.

you could have waited a year to prevent this stuff microsoft, but you just HAD to release way ahead of time, and look where thats got you.

anyway, im nearing the end of kotor 2 i suppose, and its actually really awesome.  in terms of the storyline and stuff, i can say it beats the first kotor.  however, i see kotor 2 is one of those games i play once, and kotor a game i will not enjoy as much as kotor 2 in a playthrough, but a game i can happily enjoy multiple times through regardless of it starting to suck near the end.

Not so, unless you put your hard drive on a different console or the game specifically requires it.

I've played every game that I own both connected and disconnected from Live! and none of my DLC gave me any trouble.  The only reason you would really have to be online when you bring your hard drive to a different system is because the hardware serial number would suddenly change.  It's kind of like product activation as far as I can tell.

you could have waited a year to prevent this stuff microsoft, but you just HAD to release way ahead of time, and look where thats got you.

Considering the Xbox 360 is the only system in this generation that I find to be currently worth owning: pretty far.  The Wii and the PS3 are playing catch-up as far as quality games are concerned.

Also, Spec, I have a question. Do you remember, either driving on the way to my house or to your place, driving past a bunch of Indian people who were crossing the street? Because I found out today that by some incredible coincidence, those are the same Indians who took about a hundred jobs at my Nielsen plant.

oddly, i had this fucked up dream where i was at bobbias house, and like i was in this renemon suit and i was running around the front yard...

what the fuck, first off, what would i be doing at bobs house, and secondly, i don't dress up as cartoon characters.  hell, the only thing i wear, ever, is jeans, and a black t shirt if its winter, and white if its spring/summer.

and then theres these dreams of me doing this disturbing stuff i would never dream/want to do ever.  dreams suck.

disturbing stuff aside, i downloaded the demo for ikaruga on xbla (yes, its on xbla now), im not much for shmups but its pretty fun.

*edit*

WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

*edit due to boredom*

managed to get to the second part of the level 1 boss of ikaruga on hard...then i died because that game is BULLETZ EVERWER

ill probably buy this sucker after bionic commando rearmed comes out and i play the bejesus out of that.

I loled at Aldrasio's comment. It's truth, but A LOT  of stereotypes get a lot of media attention (see rap). Kind of sad to see 12 year olds constantly post F@G too.

Also I started reading smash boards looking for brawl videos and what not, when I drifted into a discussion about which being better Brawl or Melee. I was thinking some people might actually like brawl for being a more balanced and "deeper" game despite the lack of "wave dashing" but I come across this.

Quote
I could beat some of my friends without getting Ko'ed in Melee, but in Brawl it's usually 50/50. That is what makes Brawl less competitive, the randomness and that being better doesn't mean winning.
Why would anyone go to a tournament where they're playing for money(or not) if training and effort won't make you win? It's like going to a coin flipping tournament, except the coin takes a lot longer to fall.

Maybe it's because the game plays completely differently and you and your friends have the EXACT same amount of experience?

Quote
That's how I feel. I would enter a brawl tournament even though I don't think the game is as competitive as melee. I would rather enter a melee tournament though. I'm really good at it even though I never had a chance to really get into the tournament scene. Also, I don't own a wii and haven't been able to play brawl very much.

Damn, better go enter a tourny for a game I don't own, nah fuck it that game suckshit.

No see you guys are still not noticing the big picture.

I mean that they tend to suck up time like mad, and you get basically shit in return for the time you spend in them.

Harvest Moon: "Look at me, I managed to clear every rock out of my yard! I'm a video game master!"
The Sims: "My god, he can go to the bathroom without me telling him to... It's a miracle!"

im sorry, but they are still videogames, and if the person playing said vidya is entertained, its time well spent imo.  time is only wasted when you aren't entertained playing that vidya, as its the vidya's only purpose.

its kind of like me grinding in the pokermans, its not fun, and that time could be better used to entertain myself, or do something productive.

The display of Schvarts' project will feature a large cube suspended from the ceiling of a room in the gallery of Green Hall. Schvarts will wrap hundreds of feet of plastic sheeting around this cube; lined between layers of the sheeting will be the blood from Schvarts' self-induced miscarriages mixed with Vaseline in order to prevent the blood from drying and to extend the blood throughout the plastic sheeting.

Schvarts will then project recorded videos onto the four sides of the cube. These videos, captured on a VHS camcorder, will show her experiencing miscarriages in her bathrooom tub, she said. Similar videos will be projected onto the walls of the room.

so i had this several pound bag of pecans laying around.  they don't quite taste good when just eaten standalone(they aren't salted), so i had to think of something before these things expire (summer 2009, ololol).  what i did was took a handfull of pecans and tossed em in a frying pan, i added quite a bit of butter to that, and cooked em on low with a dash of salt till the pecans started to brown. 

then all i did was tossed those pecans into a bowl of vanilla ice cream, and the melted butter drizzled on top of that, with some caramel to finish it off.

i may just start butter frying my pecans more often, they taste great in ice cream, and they taste great just eaten as is.

i hope mass effect 2 shows you what you have done in your previous beaten files because i have...a lot...

and i am currently working on my "perfect" file to be in use with me2, level 60 soldier with lift, specter x weapon, collosus x heavy armor (which i have not yet seen for humans), just about every quest complete, full paragon, ect. 

but if me2 lacks such a feature, im going to have a hell of a time finding the "right" file to continue off from(seriously, i got like 15), even though its probably going to only minorly effect the game.

So I finally called it off with the ex that I got back together with, for good this time. Trouble is she so desperately still wants to be friends and I just don't want to deal with her shit at all.

Also, I'm trying to get my roommate for next year to get GTAIV so badly. For some reason he can't comprehend that it will be the greatest game ever made.

nah sorry to hear about that.  just keep her away, sounds like she's being awfully clingy.  if she really wants to be friends she'd give some space for awhile.

I've never used gomplayer, got more info? I only use winamp for my music, but it'd be damn hard to give me a reason to switch from winamp to something else. I think my winamp can play more types of files than VLC can at this point. (yay for all those input plugins)

you know, i think i may go back to winamp for music, but im sticking with gomplayer for video.

i can't really say anything, other than i used the player and i liked it more than winamp.  for music, it works just fine, only theres no way to shrink the player to a small little bar, and there isn't a button to skip tracks (as far as i know of).

but for video it works great, the thing is chock full of codecs, so you shouldn't have a problem playing just about anything you come across.

Well, I won't download it unless I really need it. As far as "chock full of codecs" is concerned, my winamp supports damn near anything I'll come across, if there's something it won't play, I happen to have VLC, media player classic, itunes, quicktime, divx player,3gp player 2008 (thanks to my brother), real alternative, and foobar2000 installed as well. ffdshow, and x264, flac, divx, mkvtoolnix, alltoavi, sdp downloader (for retrieving files via MMS streams), avipreview, gspot, and asftools for tools and codec stuff.

Yes, my computer is FULL of video and audio players. Most of which NEVER get used. I use winamp almost exclusively for music, and I use media player classic for videos (I never liked how winamp played videos, especially WMVs. WMVs look MUCH worse in winamp). However, thanks to my insanely huge collection, I rarely encounter anything I can't play. The last thing to stump me for a bit was DTS encoded wav files. But I found a foobar2000 and a winamp plugin capable of solving that. The only issue I haven't fixed yet is that when using SDP Downloader, the resulting WMV/WMA (i forget which it is) is unseekable. I've tried a number of ways of fixing it, but none of them worked. Some simply fail, making an unseekable file, and some break the file completely, so if someone has any ideas, let me know.

I could uninstall everything and leave winamp and media player classic. However, most of the utilities, I've actually found a use for, as well as the codecs. Thing is, most media players only take up a small amount of space. I have something along the lines of 1.45 TB of space to store stuff. A couple megs here and there for meida players makes virtually no difference in there.

instead of around 87/89kb/s max download speed, it seems to be capping at 86kb/s

this is dissapointing, but i guess it isn't a big decline.  that and webpages seem to load faster for some reason.

Wow, your DSL sucks ass. I hope you're not paying more than $20 for that shit.

I get about 300 KB/s max. Not every site will hit that max (but being able to get 2 parallel 150 Kb/s connections is good too), but that's my max, and the base cost is $30. The service offered is 5 Mbit connections, but the infrastructure here plus my shitty modem couldn't handle anything faster than 3.0 Mbits, so that's why I can't get anything faster than 300. Technically, I should get a it faster than that ever but I rarely get more than 312.

I wish I could actually use all 5 mbits :/ Damn 5 db SNR :/

I hate Sprint.

I get very good reception in my apartment with T-Mobile.  My phone has no qualms about hitting up GPRS and doing some data communications.  All in all, life is good for my V3x.

My company BlackBerry, on the other hand, seems to hate my room.  It's very rare that I see CDMA phones with lower reception than GSM phones, but in this case it's a reality.  I was trying to use TeleNav (which also blows...more on that later if I'm in the mood) earlier so that I could get a route to a house that I need to head to today and the network kept completely cutting out!  No voice, no data.  After the service came back (which took at least two minutes) it kept switching between 1X (slow data), 1XEV (fast data), and no signal, leaving me completely unable to do anything for the next minute while it decided what it wanted to do.

It wouldn't bug me so much if it didn't happen so often, and if it were limited to just me.  No, the problem here is that Sprint is a terrible service, and I encourage everyone to stay far, far away from it.  I've had more dropped calls (dropped calls, to me, meaning calls lost in areas with good reception) with modern Sprint phones (when I was on both ends of the conversation, mind you) than I had with T-Mobile, Cellular One, and even bloody freaking TracFone.

Fuck Sprint.

And vlad, those numbers in are kilobits, not kilobytes, like most things measure. (or kibibytes, as the technical term really is).

So 2555 kbits = 319.375 kilobytes/s. 411 kilobits = 51.375 kilobytes/s. That upload is actually a bit lower than I can hit.

Post by: Sneaky on April 24, 2008, 07:08:08 PM
I'm not sure what your setup is, but at my cable support job, we had tools to tell us the customers SNR among other things. The way I understand it, it had something to do with the cable lines themselves, and not adjustable in the modem [at least they didn't do that], some cable lines were just crappy, splitters going bad, and the 'box' or junction outside needing upgrading or modifying.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on April 24, 2008, 07:33:20 PM
Ahh, wasn't sure if there was anything I could do, but I was hoping there was. My modem is capable of telling me my SNR, among other info as well, but I never managed to get it to work (you had to connect to it with a telnet connection and such, and I don't have PPPOE installed on my computer, so I couldn't even communicate with it).

But yeah, my SNR being 5 db is kinda bad, since the lowest recommended level was usually 6 db. I don't lose any packets or anything right now, but if the infrastructure around here gets upgraded and my connection does too, I won't be able to take advantage of that, because any faster connection would cause my SNR to drop. Not to mention my line consumption idles at 88% :/ Yeah, my lines are really bad.

I've never quite understood how people could get connections that fast without either being on a university connection, or paying an arm and a leg. What are you paying for that connection?

It's a basic cable Internet package.  I'm not sure how much it is exactly because the bill isn't split up (the digital cable TV service and Internet connection is jumped into one $80 blob), but it's probably around $30-40.

Comcast has to compete with FiOS in this area, so they pump the speeds up by lots.  There have been times where I've downloaded at around 2.5MB/s before.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on April 24, 2008, 11:17:33 PM
Damn. How much is FiOS anyway?

It's always bugged me how crappy connectivity is around here. I've got friends who can't get high speed because there just isn't any infrastructure capable of giving them highspeed.

I mean, the fact that my plan is now 5 mbits for $30 instead of 3 is relatively new, I think they just updated the speeds a couple months ago, maybe 6 months ago.

If I want a connection capable of downloading at 2.5 MB/s, I'd have to pay an arm and a leg (and definitely get a new modem, if not get new lines to the house as well).

EDIT: Treading the wiki page on FiOS, I read that the TOS say you can't host a server of any kind (unless you're buying a commercial package, where available). That is absolutely retarded...
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on April 24, 2008, 11:28:22 PM
I dunno.  It's cheaper than what we're paying for this (well, technically, what Nielsen is paying for this...this job has the most amazing perks), we just don't get it at our apartment complex yet.  Tis a shame.

We are definitely switching when it comes available, though.  Comcast is the fastest cable service I've used but from what I've observed (and from what I've read) its fast speeds aren't as consistent as FiOS.  It's always fast, but it doesn't hold 15mbps all the time (though it's always faster than 8-9mbps, so I can't complain).

reminds me of when i was in school.. the school went to the county office who plugged right into cisco.. Only thing that wasn't fiber optic was from the county to the school. damn, I wish I remembered how fast the actual speed was. Unfortunately, without numbers to prove anything, nobody gives a fuck except for me and the value of the memory it means to me.. ah well. Kinda like telling someone a funny joke that happened between you and your friends.. You tell them and they laugh, but really they just dont give a shit because they werent there and see no reason to really care. hahaha. aw well. time to stfu now.

So Firefox 3 (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html) (beta 5) is pretty damn fine.  Performance has improved by about a bazillion percent and the zoom feature actually zooms everything, ala Opera and IE7.  Finally.  Now I can sit back and read sites without horribly breaking their layout (not to mention being stuck with a static 640 pixel wide block of text on a 1920 pixel wide screen...grr).  Not to mention that it also applies those zoom settings to every page on a given domain.  No more opening 10 tabs and having to manually zoom each one of them when I want to sit back and read.

Oh, and if anyone cares about hardly-practical rendering tests, it passes Acid2 now.  Not sure which release passed it first, but it does it now.

So yeah, this thing is going to be totally rad and stuff.

It's still a memory hog, haha.

Yeah, but how long before there's widespread use of The Grid? ARPA created the IPTO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_Processing_Technology_Office) to further the research of the SAGE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semi_Automatic_Ground_Environment) program in 1958. That networked the US ground radar system together.

The first TCP/IP WAN was created January 1st 1983. That's 25 years between them, and it wasn't till probably th mid 90's before we had real widespread use of the net.

How long before The Grid becomes the most common connection? And Need I remind you how much of a patchwork miracle the current internet is? Quite a few people are saying that it's a miracle the internet even works, considering how patched together it is.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Alice on April 26, 2008, 02:41:30 PM
Yeah, that's kind of what i was getting at.  The internet is a piece of shit ran through age-old telephone hardware.  The Grid will use its own cable system.  It may be a while before it's really widespread, and it's probably going to hit places like research centers and universities before anywhere else, but when 20X3 comes around and the Grid completely replaces the internet... yeah.  Having a high net speed won't be e-peen worthy anymore :D

Post by: Bobbias on April 26, 2008, 04:06:17 PM
Also, I should point out that The Grid is not even as fast as the fastest Core Routers in the internet. The Grid is supposed to give you speeds of 1 gigabyte per second. That would equal 8 gigabits per second. Most current core routers run on 10 gigabit per second connection, and some of them run on 40 gigabit per second connections. The number they're always using of "10,000 times faster than the current internet infrastructure" is misinformation. It's 10,000 times faster than a 1 megabit per second connection, which is about the lowest normal speed of broadband connections, but as I said before, most core routers in the internet have connections as fast as or faster than The Grid.

Haha, yeah, I read that and thought of WoW.

But they're probably talking about virtual reality games. VR games over a network are pretty much impossible right now, I think. Maybe over a small network like a LAN, since we can get much faster speeds than the internet (100 mbit connections over ethernet, and that's standard in every computer now), but any widespread VR game with thousands of players would require a pretty huge amount of bandwidth, both for the players, and for the server.

Case in point: I ordered a DVD burner on Monday evening.  It shipped Tuesday morning and already got to the Laurel, MD, distribution office.  I will have it installed in my computer tonight.  Holy shit.

What's sad is that if I sprung for the $38490.99 next day air option I wouldn't have gotten the product any sooner.  And, just to reiterate, I used the cheapest available ground shipping.

In some cases you can't actually kill the guy running away. The whole thing is scripted until he gets to the end of the chase. It's sort of dumb.

Man, shit's coming together this week. I got a conditional acceptance (which I'm in the process of getting what I need for a full acceptance) at Georgian College, I got my G2 (and I did the test hung over, at that!), and I got a job. All within a week's time.

Fucking A. Seriously, how the hell did this happen?

The only part that sucked was that the hangover is probably the worst one I've ever had (I still felt a bit sick at 3:30 AM the next night.)

Awww...my 10-year-old LG DVD-ROM drive died. :(

Oh well.  You could probably get about five or six DVD±RW DL drives for what that thing cost when it was new (I just picked up a Toshiba/Samsung 20x DVD±RW DL drive for $25, after all), so it's not a huge deal.  Even so, it's sort of strange for me; that drive saw me through five computers (a total of seven motherboards!) so it's definitely going to be weird not having it.

Also, Iron Man rocks.

And congratulations, Boobids. :)

WHAT DA FUK.

So I got a DVD burner from Target (at horribly inflated prices...but oh well, I kinda needed it) to replace my bad DVD-ROM and what happens?  I GET THE EXACT SAME FUGGIN DVD WRITER THAT I JUST BOUGHT.

So now I have two TSST SH-S202J DL DVD±RW drives.  Now the question is, do I move both of them to my new system or keep it as-is (i.e. LITE-ON + TSST in my new system, TSST in my old one)?  Meh, too much work.  It's fine how it is.

Also, whatchu going to do there, Bobbs?

Does youtube downsize or degrade videos? I've tried uploading a higher quality Divx but it looked like the first one I had up there. So I deleted the 'new' one and renamed the file since it was exactly the same as the first. Hopefully this fixes it :( I don't want it to be all pixelated and shit
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on May 03, 2008, 05:54:00 PM
Yeah, YouTube knocks down the quality to make them more streamable.

In some cases it'll give an option for a higher quality movie but that depends on the codec that you use.  I saved and uploaded my MAX 300 video in Windows Media format and it allows for a higher quality mode, while my Portal video, which is in XviD, doesn't.

Iron Man is very possibly the best superhero movie made so far. Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect Tony Stark, down to the goatee. The second movie should hopefully follow Stark's alcoholism and have him accidentally killing an innocent, having Rhodie get the War Machine armor and then having Rhodie get taken over by the armor, leading to Stark stepping up to face him.

Also, the scene after the credits gave me a nerdgasm.

I finally (nearly) completed my bedroom networking system thingy. I connected my computer, server, stereo, SNES, N64, input selector, TV, UPS, and RF modulator together.

Here's a diagram:

  ,----------------------------------------------,
 |   Server                                                      \
 |    |    |                    N64       SNES           RF Modulator
 |    |    |                        \          |                     |
 |    |    UPS                      Input Selector--------TV
 |    |    |  | \_______             |         |
 |    |    |   \            \            |          |
  '-Compy---Mon. 1  Mon. 2     |       Stereo
    |    |                     |        |
    |     '---------------'        |
     '-------------------------'

After my S-video to composite video coupler comes in from Amazon (thanks spec!), I'm going to return the RF modulator and run the composite out to the input selector.  nVidia, best buy, and radioshack wanted over $25 for the part.. Which only cost $1.50 on amazon.. Go figure. I even called a Radioshack in another town, and while they said they didnt have the coupler, they had a 6' cabled version of it, and that it was $47. I seriously just started laughing when he told me. I couldn't believe it.

So anyway, the input selector is very much like your traditional RCA pick-your-input-and-play type of deal... It even allows for HD inputs, s-video, and RCA. What's better than that, is that it autodetects what is receiving signal and tunes to that input automatically. It works extremely well, much to my surprise. Turn on the tv, and turn on the SNES.. BOOM! Power rangers on the screen. Turn it off, turn on the N64.. BAM! Pokemon stadium. Hoorah. Only $20 bucks IIRC, not a bad deal at all.

Oh! Another thing I'm hellaciously excited about is my old computer being hooked up to my newer one. Only things plugged into it is a Cat5 cable and a power cord. That's all. Freaking awesome. Soon, I'll put in a wireless card, and just stick it in a corner of the house somewhere. I use remote desktop, fullscreen it to the other monitor, and it's like true love. :3

Okay, I'm done talking about it. It's just finally fucking done and I just wanted to share my joy in finally getting so many electronic things to work together so well (which is surprisingly not an easy thing to do).

sounds like me a couple of weeks ago.

now I have the sleep schedule of an old woman.

I go to work at 9 so I go to bed about midnight.
and apparently during the weekends i go to bed at midnight, wake up at about 11:30 and then TAKE A 4 HOUR NAP from 5-9 (BOTH SAT AND SUN).

lol is it sad that I do?

Anyway, GTA4 is fucking amazing. I'm seriously considering dropping a lot of money on a 360 now because of it (and of course shit like Dead Rising and NHL 08 others) but at the same time I just don't have the money or time to get involved with it. Fuck life was so much easier when all I had to spend money on was video games.

Anyway, I'm going to start Persona 3 FES soon because I've heard so many good things about it. I'm starting it a week before finals too which isn't the smartest choice I've ever made but fuck it.

Ouch.

I've got an odd sleep schedule. Well, not quite, but my sleep schedule SHOULD be something like this once I start work:

Wake up around 3 PM, go to work at 11 PM till 6:30 AM or 7:30 AM, sleep till 3 PM, repeat. The reason for this, instead of something where I go to work in the "morning" is because a friend wants to have a D&D campaign going this summer, and he thinks it should be around Mondays starting at 4 PM or so.

I agree completely. I used to only buy games, and only care about games, and now it's quite the opposite. I'm glad like 90% of my friends have 360s, though, so I  think I'm gonna start mooching off their GTA4's and such.

I finally (nearly) completed my bedroom networking system thingy. I connected my computer, server, stereo, SNES, N64, input selector, TV, UPS, and RF modulator together.

Whoa, nice.

Then there's my pussy little 13" TV.  In its prime I had cable, a SEGA Master System, a Genesis, a SNES, an N64, a PS2, an Xbox, a GameCube, a Saturn, and a Dreamcast all connected to it.  The blob of wires was physically larger than the TV itself (composite for everything but the SMS and Genesis, which were on SEGA RF modulators).  Fun!

I had my older computer alone for a week or so as well, so that I could transfer data off of it, onto my new one.  It proved to be a nice slave, and Windows took surprisingly well to the system booting with no optical drives and one hard drive less quite well.  When I needed to go to the desktop I just used remote desktop.  Quite nice!

Now I have it connected to a little Dell 17" CRT, sitting on a fold-up TV tray.  I'm using my Logitech Elite keyboard for it, with a Logitech ball mouse connected to the PS/2 port (with the tower itself being a mouse pad...heh).  I really need to pick up a new mouse for it (I'll probably pick up a new Logitech G5 -- the one that actually adds the forward button back in and hopefully that has a scroll wheel that isn't shit -- and use my old G5 on this one).

SPEAKING OF MY OLDER SYSTEM, I'm currently using it to mess with operating systems.  I installed Ubuntu on it and...damn, when did Linux become this bloody easy?  For that matter, when did Linux become this brown?  Oi...ah well, themes can always be changed. :)

unless spectere haxored the site to make this avatar permanent unless i select the no avatar option, im stuck with it.

but i guess ill keep rio till that problem is fixed.  but i mean, after a few weeks to a month, i just get the urge to change my avatar for some reason.  strange, being in all 2000 of my posts on arch0wl.com and the two or so years ive posted there, i had one avatar(ok, unless you count THE VERY BEGINNING before the "lords of the fingerdance" competition was cancelled beginning, i had an alucard avatar, but that was like fuckin' september 2004), save for one period of a few weeks where i shopped that avatar on the snoop dogg image i linked a page or two back.

Post by: Zakamiro on May 10, 2008, 06:55:59 PM
One thing i've done is tried to make the videos as close to legitimate free use as possible. Make it seem educational, like there's some way you need to show something in the game, but the only way to do it is by actually showing the video. Even just a horrible parody is enough to constitute fair use.

In my opinion, youtube is extremely lenient about what you can upload. Profanity isn't even an item on youtube. Think of all of those 9 second clips on youtube that claim to be porn and have millions of views. If you look at the most viewed of all time list, these videos are conveniently off the list... So clearly, youtube has the decency to hide these videos so moms and whoever else don't stumble upon it by mistake (no pun intended), without needing to actually remove the video.

In fact, if I recall correctly, youtube didn't even want to remove videos during the whole Viacom fiasco. They had basically said, "Okay, then sue us." Then, when Viacom finally threatened, youtube told Viacom they had to tell youtube which videos constituted copyright infringement, so they knew which videos to review for removal. Talk about a pain in the ass for Viacom.

TLDR; try fair use, youtube is lenient.

All GTA IV vids except the promotional trailers were removed. maybe I can disguise it, but I'm too pissed at them now to give a flying shit. I can understand family guy being taken off, but a fucking video game? Jesus christ, like Take 2 games is going to make a 'share your gta clips' website like SKATE did. Yea right. Someone went on a power trip "OMG I HAVE ZE POWAR TO DO DIS LOLS LETS FUCK WITH THEM"

It's not like I'm selling the game here, with TV like I said, it's understandable because people pay to have to to be able to watch things like family guy. People DO purchase games to play them, but you can't "play" a game on youtube if that makes sense.. it's just a demonstration of a way a player went through one of the most exciting missions in the game [3 leaf clover]. And the company wants to take that away from the gamers, then fine, less free advertising for them.

I just get pissed off when companies get like that, like a fucking child going thru the 'everything is MINE' stage of it's life. Metallica/U2 perfect example for the music industry, which is another conversation, same attitude.

I just want take 2 to explain themselves. No harm was being done, no money was being made or profited, no one was being ridiculed or anything. I don't see any reason why that happened..




maybe if I slap a copyright take 2 /rockstar games on the video they'll fuck off

i make this post, on my pc, but not my regular 19 inch lcd monitor (not widescreen). 

i woke up today, and my sister tells me to go to the garage, i have no idea why, and i was about to take a shower.  so my shower gets posponed, and i go to the garage with my dad and my sister....

to keep it short, i can not believe how spoiled i am, i do not fucking deserve this, and i am very greatful. 

so for some reason, my sister and my dad pitch in and got me one of these fucking things. (http://www.vizio.com/products/detail.aspx?pid=30) 

and i guess i have one of these because i am not going to the bahamas with them (the heat there would fucking kill me) and apparently, this big fucking tv is cheaper than if i was to go.  i mean, i still don't understand it, but fuck, this is like awesome, save for the fact people are now going to hate me(i actually have a scarily big feeling that people will get pissy with me due to this).

and diddling around the computer on a 42 inch hdtv is pretty bitchin, save for the fact i lack a long cord to go from tv to pc, a wireless mouse, and a wireless keyboard, and too lazy to hook up the speakers.  so shortly after this is posted, im hooking it back up to the 19 inch.

i really need to win the lottery so i can buy my parents a mansion or something, at the very least i could get my mom a new desktop(ill probably do that several months after i get a job).

anyway, gta 4 online, hd, sex, cum, ect.

*edit* i think i know which tv i will play starcraft 2 on ;o

definatley going to keep the old tv though, playing iidx on an hdtv is like playing dead rising on a non hdtv.  (especially 8 and 9, NO TIMING ADJUSTMENT, basically making them literally unplayable, at least i can play 12th and 13th)

Do it, do it, do it. Not sure how long your hair is now, but shorter hair is infinitely better than ridiculously long hair.


So I just got back from some school retreat up north for the weekend. Sort of lame, but I actually had a great time.

well long hair kicks ass

my hair is just so long, 6-8 inches cut off, and i STILL have long hair.  its just almost to my lower back now, and well, dealing with it is a bit more difficult than if it was a bit shorter.

i will probably take a before picture if/when i decide to cut it.

also short hair is too much maintenance, you get it cut, then several days later it looks like crap and you need it cut again, i fucking hate that.

and from what i remember (like...8 or so years ago..stfu) i look fucking retarded with short hair.

*edit*

and gta 4 online

while it is fun and all, i doubt i will end up getting xbl gold for this game.  i mean, being competitive with analog sticks is fucking silly imo.  unless i attach mouse and keyboard to my 360, ill just wait until another "xbl online" game catches my eye.  i mean, i got the game for its single player stuff, and that stuff is awesome, but i mean, im just commenting on the online.

maby if fable 2 puts out, i will try this "online" thing again.

Eh, can't complain.  It's pretty, boots somewhat quickly (more quickly than my very lean Linux installation, slower than XP), and feels a bit more responsive than XP on this machine.  Oh yeah, it can also actually use all of my memory.  SHOCK HORROR GASP.

The "Windows Experience Index" is quite fucked, though.  My system doesn't hold a candle to some of the hardcore OC'd rigs, or even stock rigs with insane video cardage, yet every category of the WEI was maxed out (5.9) with the exception of disk performance, which was a 5.3 (hence my base score).

I suppose it would do a good job at striking down low-end chipsets, but it certainly doesn't work too well for an enthusiast's system.

It bugs me too.

What bothers me to no end is the over use of Epic and Failure.

That doesn't bother me so much. I use Epic and Failure. I find it a pretty good way to describe things. I sometimes say things like "That is a giant pile of fail." and such, in normal speech. I only use epic for something that would truly be well, epic. Something that is above and beyond simply win or awesome. Something that deserves recognition for how truly awesome it is, is epic to me.

Post by: MortifiedocAlot on May 13, 2008, 11:57:47 PM
Smart troll indeed. I loled bricks.

Also epic is so overused now it's lost all meaning. Same as win and fail. It's just insanely annoying when one minor positive thing happens and it's "EPIC WIN" or something negative happens and "FAIL".

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on May 14, 2008, 12:55:57 AM
I avoid "fail" like the plague because the last thing the Internet needs is one more person saying it all the time.

Long hair on girls is often very hot though. There's a trade-off for all the work you do to maintain it.

Yes, epic, fail and baaawwww also annoy me. Epic more than fail because I totally used it to describe things before it was "cool."

In other news, I've had a strange illness for like the last week. Really it's just a cold but where the hell did I get it from it's like 60 degrees outside.

Other times I get people petting me.

And then there's my "favorite" - the people that'll grab my hair and say "OH MY GOD YOU SHOULD DONATE YOUR HAIR!  IT'S A SIN FOR YOU TO HAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL HAIR WHEN THERE'S BALD KIDS WITH CANCER!"

When I do decide to cut my hair, I'm certainly going to donate it.  But until I do - PAWS OFF!  >_<

I just got back from a 2 day trip to burbank. SIX FLAGS woohoo. Never been before, and my grandma said she had 2 free plane tickets, so we decided to go since school was out already for me.  Pretty awesome place, although it sucks that its set up for thousands of people to walk around in, but it wasn't busy at all, we rarely had to wait 5 minutes to get on any ride.

My grandma also got this 24" widescreen samsung 245BW LCD monitor for mothers day, so I get her old [not really OLD] dell 17" LCD. It'll be nice to finally have some LCD action. I currently have some syncmaster 'flat screen' CRT taking up more space than necessary.

ohh and the game "skate" is actually pretty fun from the demo ive been playing.  you basically only use the right analog, left analog, one of the triggers, and the a or x button, but damn, you would be suprised with how complex this game is.

it like rewards skill more than anything, and i applaud people who can chain long combos, because going in and out of manuals is a lot harder than it sounds.

anyway, its one of those "if i got better at it, and if i had money, i might buy it" games

It would probably be better if they didn't try to pull the whole "I WANNA BE A PRO SK8ER" storyline bs that the Tony Hawk games started at the very moment that those games started to suck but the gameplay is engaging enough to make it worth it (unlike the Tony Hawk games, where all of the games after TH4 are basically THE SAME GAME).

(unlike the Tony Hawk games, where all of the games after TH4 are basically THE SAME GAME).

this is why you only play thps 4 on a custom level (DDEPO IS THE BEST LEVEL I HAVE EVER MADE MY GOD) with the slow motion cheat turned on, with a friend, from 2am to 8am.

i never had so much fun glitching through walls before.

like seriously, the level would have a 1x1 square hole as deep as it would go, next to a 1x1 tower as high as it could go. 

fall to the bottom of this "unescapable" pit and do 360 ollie jumps in the corner with the slow motion turned on (not needed, but makes it easier)  when you are angled just right, you teleport to the top of the high "impossible to get to" tower.

and i did this for 6 hours....yea...

and no, i am not exaggerating, i really did that for 6 hours with a friend in split screen.

Welcome to dualscreening. It almost makes it impossible to have to deal with only one.

So true.
i don't see the point in needing two monitors.

Because you haven't tried it yet.

I always thought that Dualscreen was more or less just a nerdy thing, except for people who could really use the extra screen space (people programming on one screen with documentation on the other and such), but after having tried it, I absolutely need it. I feel so incredibly limited when I only have 1 screen.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: vladgd on May 15, 2008, 07:28:22 AM
Because you haven't tried it yet.

exactly, explain why having two monitors is awesome?  i never had the need for more space, and i literally can't think of anything "me personally" would use an extra screen for.

i mean i do have an old 17 inch flatscreen crt monitor, and i do have that new xbawx hueg hdtv.  but i lack the desktop space, and extra port to plug another monitor into.

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on May 15, 2008, 07:36:05 AM
I figured more or less the same, aside from the odd time when I program, but I use my second screen for stuff like having msn open without needing to minimize things to check the online list, (and having the conversations over the main window, instead of taking over my main monitor) and other things. I keep winamp over the left side of my second monitor, over top of things so I can see what's playing without needing to interrupt myself and move things around. Any time I have a full screen app, I can keep winamp visible in the second monitor, which saves me from needing to alt+tab out to check what's playing. Any time I have something like Fruityloops, Adobe Audition, or any other program that can use the full screen and detach child windows, I'll use a child window on the other screen, (like the playlist part of Fruityloops). It increases productivity, and is generally helpful.

It's not just that, but the fact that you get used to having it there, and using it in certain situations, so that when you don't have it there, it feels weird.

I never thought I'd get so addicted to having a second screen myself, but nevertheless, I am.

EXAMPLE SCENARIOS, INCOMING.

If you gave it a shot I'm sure you'd find many of your own reasons after a while.  When you first start using a dual-monitor setup you'd probably find that you really don't know what to do with the second display.  It's one of those things that you just have to stick with until you start using it, as odd as that may sound.

and i played the conan the barbarian demo for the x360, believe it or not, its quite fun.  get a giant two handed sword, land a "heavy" attack, and watch as whoever you sliced with that attack is chopped in half.  you can also cut off both of the arms of the enemy in a single attack(when you are dual wielding), and it looks awesome.

it kind of feels like god of war meets ninja gaiden.  maby not as "good" as those games, but its friggin conan.


(by the way i know nothing about conan the barbarian other than he is a shirtless muscley guy that kills things, and that alone gets praise from me)

I heard Conan is going to take a retarded huge amount of memory, that and it has NIPPLES. Also Exteel is rather fun. At first I didn't like it, but now that I'm starting to get it (has a surprisingly steep learning curve, for a free online game) it's a lot of fun. Also has an insane amount of customization.

Whew.

Remember the days when low-poly models were all the rage?  Remember when developers were talking about their 500-700 poly player models for Quake 2?

I just took a look at the web site for Tactical Ops 3 (http://www.tacticalops3.com/), a mod for UT3.  One of the screenshots that they have on the site features a wireframe model of an AK and, well, the magazine alone has 1432 polygons.  That's only a single part of a weapon model.  The body of the weapon has 8343 polygons, giving you a combined total of 9775 polys.  I'm pretty sure that weapon alone has more polys than your average scene in Quake.

It's amazing how much things change in 10 years.

So my Ubuntu upgrade to 8.04 came with Firefox 3 beta 5. It's really pretty nice.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on May 15, 2008, 03:25:58 PM
lawlz, I've had 8.04 for a week or two now. :P

That's the one thing that sort of scares me about Ubuntu -- they have a bad tendency of putting potentially unstable and/or beta products in their mainline distribution.  I've already experienced several display bugs in FF3b5 in both Linux and Windows.  The video card driver versions out when Ubuntu started pushing out compiz (i.e. its "desktop effects" gimmick) weren't stable enough for it, to the point where I've experienced hard locks while performing simple tasks.

So I dunno.  On one hand, it's not completely antiquidated like Debian is most of the time.  However, it's also nowhere near as stable as a Debian installation would be.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: annon on May 15, 2008, 04:54:10 PM
Well, the desktop I'm using has a shitty video card and only 448MB DDR RAM, so I really can't do any desktop effects without dragging the system down. Unlike my laptop, which had a decent video card and 2GB DDR2 RAM.

You know that uber badass SC2 video of the "making of a marine"? They BROKE THEIR RENDERER. They had 5 million polygons per frame in that video. They now use Pixar's custom renderer. They're more and more mixing and matching technology, just to get things to work.

Wow, so Crysis actually seems to play as good as it looks.  Color me really freaking surprised (and pleased).  Looks like I'm going to actually be buying it, unlike its older brother Far Cry.

I guess Crytek learned that people don't like dying over and over and over and over and over again.

Also, I have to say, their physics engine is pretty awesome.  I love how you can demolish buildings and knock over trees if you want to.  I actually shot down a tree and it started doing a domino effect with some other trees!  Holy shit.

i uhh downloaded the bring down the sky dlc for mass effect.

i mean, i had 400 points sitting around doing nothing, and why the hell not, so i got it.

umm its about 90ish minutes long, and really, its not bad.  its just not worth you know...$5.00.

i guess i got the 50 achievement points for beating it, and COLOSSUS X HEAVY HUMAN ARMOR out of the deal(seriously, i found every other varient of the armor save for the quarian version, multiple times).  but it just wasn't worth 400 ms points, and i consider myself a die hard mass effect fan, having beaten the game 6 times, with all 1050 achievement points.

well whatever, it was fun while it lasted, and i can pick up the COLOSUSS X QUARIAN ARMOR when i play through again to hit 60 on my second character.

*edit*

i decided to GRIND on the oblivion for a bit, here is my current character

(http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/4039/screenshot25ec3.png)

25 levels of block to go....whee

ohh, and i got on urban dead for the first time in around a year.  ended up finding a human, i bit him, and infected him (they take 1 damage every time they move).  he shot me up real good, would have killed me, but he ran out of ammo and started axing me.  i being the awesome zombie i am, got him down to about 10 hp, then he took off and ran. 

id be surprised if he survives, being infected and all.  to the place he ran, there was another human, and i killed him before running out of ap.  as i killed him, i seen another human enter the building, so i am most likley dead, again.  as long as he doesn't headshot me(its like 5 more ap for me to stand up, annoying, but nothing too bad), whatever, being killed as a zombie isn't really bad, in fact, im sure its expected that the zombie dies at the end of every day.

what i would like to see is a co op zombie apocalypse rpg like urban dead, only not as a browser based game.  it would fucking kick ass.

but i guess a zombie apocalypse co op shootan(fuck off, i like saying shootan) game (left for dead) will be good enough.

AND AND AND for those who don't know

http://www.urbandead.com/

if you like games that are like "get on once a day for like 10 minutes" this should prove entertaining.

*edit*

AND AND AND

played some lost planet

game is fuckhard, and i made it to level 5.  pretty fun when you aren't getting rocket launchered, as you try to get up, rocket launchered again, and stunlocked this way until you die.

also yay for tldr posts due to NOBODY ELSE POSTING

*edit*

it is a bit past 6:30 pm est and i am tired

i expect EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU to read this tldr post, and reply to it when i wake up

this little bastard

(http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/9340/zombiehunterftlwd8.jpg)

its one thing to headshot me, but spending 1ap to call me "scum", thats just terrible. i mean, so what if i killed his friend, im just being a damn zombie.

im going to bite his ass if i ever see him wandering away from the safety of the rooftops.  may as well spend this day trying to break down the barricade.

*edit* ololol with only 30 ap i managed to break down the barricade bite both survivors (my bites infect survivors) and then let out some zombie noise towards the location of this place.  niggas should be zombies by the time i log on tomorrow.

also, i really should find a revive point, because ive spent so much time as a zombie, i have every zombie skill (save for brain rot, brain rot = way way way harder to get revived) and over 1000xp, so i should be able to buy every human skill.

one last thing because i can't stop rambling.  i did start out the game as a fireman, and umm well, i got killed really fast, so i ended up being a zombie.  to note, it is way easier being a zombie from the start rather than going "survivor with no xp" to zombie, because you lack any zombie skills and hitting just about anything is hell.  so yea, urban dead, good 10 minute time killer.

When I met him with iPatch last summer I guess he was pretty 8) with us, so he kept in touch.

iPatch saw a show he had in Kansas city and he got to hang out with him for a while, autographed his DS, etc. After the show, iPatch gave me a call, put Benn on, and we talked.

I was like =ooo!!! Because I hadn't talked to him in a while. But he's really nice.

You had better freaking tell me when he tours, because I would give my left testicle to see him. I'm going to be staying summer quarter up at Western, but I can skip class for a couple days to drive down.

if at all interested in urban dead, browse around on the wiki, its rather entertaining. 

but uhh, i had a friend revive me, and i am going to try and play the "survivor" role until i max him out(i mean, i could do it as a zombie, but ive been a zombie since 2006).  after i end up maxing out the survivor stats, which should take a decent amount of time, considering i need about 700 more xp to do so; i will most likely look for a nice zombie horde, get eaten by them, and join them.  unless i end up enjoying the survivor thing, i mean, it is quite fun with the stress of staying alive and working together to survive the zombie invasion.  who knows, why pick sides when you can do both.

anyway, i like this game, its fun to play, and fun to read about on the wiki.

yadda yadda, more stuff nobody cares about, im off to bed anyway.  g'night y'all.

So apparently I posted this bulletin on MySpace last night:

i'm going to compose a bulletin. don't know why.



i feel like my life is now coming together. i have a well-paying job, a girlfriend, a social life... but i'm at a crossroads, of sorts, which will somewhat affect my outcome. hopefully with my 1300 on the SAT i'll breeze through senior year with good things, and then have college all paid for! then i'll become a hotshot meteorologist and deanna and i can sit up on our pedestal of weather. i want that more than anything. we also need to have a kitten, its name oh sweet well i'll check it out later, peace, enjoy the dogs dawgs. what's deanna up to...

also i keep feeling like i'm talking to some black lady about her car. no, i'm not.

I have a summer job at the gas station down my street. I have training tomorrow (which I get paid for, chuss) and then I'm going to get my first shift this week. All my shifts are going to be either 3 pm - 11 pm or 11 pm - 7 am. There's also a possibility I'll get double shifted, which means 16 hours of straight work. I'm going to blow my fucking brains out.

At the same time, I haven't been this happy in a long time. I've finally found a girl that I really care for, and she reciprocates the feelings. She's finally told me she loves me, and I feel really good about things. We're hoping to see each other over the summer, but if we can't, I have to wait until August when we're back at college to see her again. :<

Oh, and as an aside that doesn't even belong in the same league as that last statement, I've been playing Warriors Orochi almost exclusively for the past 2 weeks. Fuck Persona 3, Warriors Orochi is where it's at. It's basically a crossover of the Dynasty and Samurai Warriors series with an original storyline and there's so much shit to do. Unlocking characters and stages, maxing characters, getting 4th weapons, getting personal items. The awesome part is that Koei just announced that the sequel which is already out in Japan is getting a US release, and since everyone who's already played it agreed it's better in so many ways, I can't fucking wait.

Oh, and in Buffalo we have this thing called Thursday At The Square, which other than the food is the only redeeming quality about this area, where every Thursday in the summer bands play for free, and this year's lineup totally blows. Last year I got to see Violent Femmes, one of my favorite bands, which was awesome, but this year nobody interests me. And to top things off, my friend is dragging me to an emo concert sometime next week which I really don't want to go to. Oh, and Buckethead is coming to a place like 5 minutes from my house on July 28th, but I'm not sure if it's going to be 21+ so I might not be able to go.

Final thing: I've really wanted to build something for a while now. I was looking up LEGO shit for like 2 hours last night but eventually decided that it was too expensive (I only wanted the 1000+ piece sets and those all set you back like $150 or more [Millenium Falcon = 5000 pieces = biggest set = $500). I guess I could go to KNEX which are cheaper, but I'm not sure. I had this awesome training facility thing from them when I was younger but that shit starts to hurt your hands. I think I might go out later this week to like Toys R Us or a local hobby shop and look for model cars. I've never liked painting but I figure I'll give it a shot now because I really want something that can waste some time and I can have fun doing it.

Long message is long.

Heh, welcome to the world of jobs. Lucky me, I don't get different shifts. Since I'm done training , I'm doing 11-7:30 all the time. (30 minutes, because we get 30 minutes of unpaid lunch, on top of the 2 15 minute paid breaks).

If I got 16 hours straight, I'd kill someone (not myself, lol).

several days ago my dad was in the same position, then i catch it from him. FFFFFFFFF.

anyway, i like enterprise, SUCK IT DOWN!
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on May 27, 2008, 12:54:57 PM
From what I heard, enterprise was like Star Trek meets soap opera.

I'm a fan of the original Star Trek, and TNG, and to a much lesser extent, Voyager (much). All the other Star Treks can suck it.

From what I heard

so you are telling me it is fail, when you haven't even seen it.

its like /v/ all over again

"i haven't played game X but from what i hear it sucks, SAGE!"

anyway,

voyager > tng > ds9 > enterprise

can't coment on the original series, because I HAVEN'T SEEN IT(ok, maby an episode, but that isn't enough to make proper judgment about it).
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on May 27, 2008, 01:33:46 PM
What I enjoyed about the original is that it was really based in philosophy. Many episodes had plots created to explore some philosophical question or issue.

I watched an episode of Enterprise. Wasn't impressed.

I discussed the show with a number of my friends who have seen a bunch of it, and the consensus is that Enterprise = Star Trek meets soaps.

Though I will admit that Enterprise may actually be better than DS9. I still have no idea what the actual PLOT of DS9 was supposed to be. Every episode I've ever watched seemed like filler/useless/the series was going nowhere fast.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance

HOLY SHIT today has become a really good day. A couple months ago, my car randomly stopped working. It the engine would turn over, but wouldn't start. It had gas, and I tried jumping it, but it just wouldn't work. Eventually it just died completely and not even the automatic lock button would work.

But today, I finally stopped procrastinating and bought a new battery to see if that was the problem, and it was :D :D :D :D

Also, it's the first sunny day after several days of cold and rain. So today is good.

I have both.  I had to clean out the Super Advantage myself, piece by piece, which sucked, but I got a 50% discount when I bought it because I decided to do that, instead of let the guys at the game shop clean it out first.  They're both awesome :D

I also have a Super L5; a one-handed RPG controller so you can do other stuff with your other hand, like eating, or writing down notes.  Anybody else have one?

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: vladgd on May 29, 2008, 12:55:45 AM
hes not a dick

basically in every tvz game he mentions that even losing a single science vessel is a big setback for the terran player(same with say a pvz when the protoss is going corsair reaver and he loses his first corsair).  and said terran player was losing a metric fuckton of science vessels, tasteless was merely stating the obvious.

if you want some dicketry in starcraft, see the recent game where firebathero TOTALLY FUCKING OWNED savior(again ololol), and rubbed it in his face.

*edit*

so before go to bed i decided to get some food in my belly so i could pop some pills to help this cold go a long

and i realized how many pills i ended up taking

2x tylenol (to cut down the sinus stuff)
1x vitamin c (because everybody should take one of these every single day)
2x echenacia (like vitamin c only this is herbal crap that doesn't work, but it doesn't hurt so its worth taking)
1x flax oil (OMEGA THREES, take these daily)
1x fish oil (EVEN MORE OMEGA THREES, ALSO TAKE DAILY)

never really took down so many pills in such a short time before

AND TO FEEL HEALTHY, I GOT BLUEBERRY JUICE (even though i washed down the pills with ORANGE FAYGO)
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on May 29, 2008, 08:19:32 AM
echenacia lozenges are great for sore throats. Better than Halls and all that crap, they actually last for a while, and they are made with honey and stuff  like that. Of course, they have bark and other things like that, so they taste weird as fuck, but I like them.

And the media talking about shit like "such and such celebrity is pregnant, such and such is going out with so and so" etc. etc. etc. isn't worthless? I'd say that article is more newsworthy than most of the crap they talk about now.

very true, indeed. excellent point. Worthless in the fact of "oh hey they released pics, but we won't link you to them."

So my mom's getting married today and I'm the best man. What am I supposed to expect?

Standing around, lots of pictures... Prepare a speech if you havent already.. (shit unless you're already there OH MY GOD WTF)  I was a ring bearer when I was 9. Pretty much lame sauce.

Inspired somewhat by Office Space, I have decided to start stealing one small cup of hazelnuts from my work (which are normally handed out for free to customers) a day, and not eat any of them for a long time until I have a genuine collection of delicious hazelnuts, which I will keep around my room for guests to enjoy at their leisure.

What the hell, is there an Office Space marathon going on? I saw part of it this morning (it was randomly on), then it was on at my girlfriend's house hours later, and now you mention it! What the christ!

Also, I just got back from ProgNation, it was AMAZING. Dream Theater, Three, Between the Buried and Me and Opeth all played, bout a 4 and a half hour show. Sooo good. I am really looking forward to crashing soon though :D

Even If I have the money, I don't think I'd be able to drive there myself (Driving to Toronto when you've never driven there, and proceeding to find parking/go to the show and driving back in a night is not something I think I could manage right now, even if I had the money for the ticket :/, and that's if I'd even be allowed to take the car to do that.)

Eh, I wouldn't say that the learning curve is high, per se.  They might have improved the tutorials since you played (when did you try it?) but I found it to be pretty easy to get started with.

Now as far as getting into the meat of the game, well, that takes quite a while.  There's also a lot to learn, but you don't have to do it all at once.

As for a good way to make money at first, I started producing and selling cheap Miner I lasers in the newbie area.  If you do the mining yourself (which is easy to do in hi-sec space, since plagioclase is all you need for a Miner I), thus saving yourself the cost of buying the materials, you can pay to have it manufactured it and sell it cheap, making a massive profit.

That'll do until I acquire the resources to go out and build bigger and better things.

so i tried some missions, and well, they aren't fucking easy, i almost got my minmatar probe exploded, so fuck them.

i think this detains down to the game isn't forgiving for newcomers/dumbasses (like me), and i was spoiled with WoW.

Went with a buddy and his friends on their senior prank. Put condoms, tampons, vagisil, depends, bandaids in the high school pool. Also, red food coloring on the tampons and bandaids.

Also, I talked/debated with a friend about religion, and they ended up giving up christianity right then and there.

lol, I just asked them questions on the inconsistencies in the bible, and their belief, and how they justify them. (I used to be Christian, so I know my way around fairly well)

I spent a good deal on the foundation of the value and importance of evidence and logic, as well as just the general absurdity of many of the beliefs. I don't want to offend anyone, but yeah.

I wouldn't so much call it yikes, they were actually pretty happy about it. Unfortunately, when you get a deep belief such as religion changed, you often get upset like you've been lied to or wasted your time. Then again, feeling like you made a better choice in your belief system is always a good thing to feel.

It just started off randomly from something, just a typical conversation, and then just got into questioning and a mild debate. Then it got more serious, and then they started to consider my perspective, and trying to understand it like I do, and it made more sense to them than what they had previously thought. When I say that, I don't mean to say that I have it all figured out, that's just what ended up happening. But yeah.

I never could get into debates about religion. Maybe its because I don't really know much about the topic to get into it?

Well, when the company tells you they'll give you a completion bonus, and then when you ask for it, and they tell you "fuck off, we're not paying", they deserve what they get.

Honestly, I don't care how much money he was making in the first place, if the company said he would be paid a completion bonus, and then didn't pay him, it's no wonder he's suing them. I sure as hell would!

I completely understand why he's doing this, and I probably would do the exact same. Now, his damages claim might be a little insane, but that depends on how much they were going to pay as a bonus, and how much suffering he has actually endured (quite a bit, by the sounds of it).

Well, he was suffering, and not getting paid what they told him he would, so A) suffering, B) no money.

Plus, just because he's leaving Tecmo, doesn't mean he won't produce more games. (or make more money).
It just means he won't produce sequels to the games he's already made, because of rights issues.
He may be able to have even more freedom about what he wants to make now, too.

Try to guess what part I added in:

"In addition, he made demeaning remarks about me to my subordinates and colleagues, causing me significant emotional distress and worsening my personal relationships and work environment. I am sensitive about my face."

I can understand your points entirely, but expecting to get compensation because "he made demeaning remarks about me" sounds like playground talk by a 6-year-old. -- "Kimberly said I was stupid to her friends! I want to beat her up!"

Uhh, in a working environment, if the boss is insulting you behind your back to people you have to work with, building tension, creating bullshit, and generally making your life hard, I can see why he would add that into the equation.

Have you worked in any sort of team oriented environment with someone that people don't like? Have you noticed that fighting with team members tends to be less productive, as well as more stressful? Have you thought that as having a full time job (and probably doing a LOT of overtime during crunch time) dealing with people like that all day day in and day out can get grating, and extremely stressful?

Sure, I have.. Plenty of times. Used to have to do it at work all the time (until the idiot fell down the stairs a few days ago... hahaha).

But, using a court to play "mommy" because someone called you "names" is stupid, in my book.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on June 03, 2008, 11:45:24 AM
Sure, at times, things can get downright stupid with what people use the courts for, but I honestly feel he's justified to get something. Part of the idea of punitive damages is a way of using money to tell the guy who's wrong not to do it again. It's not awarded because the guy who's suing them deserves it, but it's there to punish the asshole for whatever they did. Suing someone and using the "emotional distress" stuff is essentially the same deal as punitive damages. It's there because sometimes what people do to get sued isn't technically illegal, however, it still caused a lot of trouble for the person.

The whole point, though, is that things have gone beyond simply calling him names or something, it's gotten bad enough that he is willing to leave the job because of it. Obviously, being called names isn't fun, but if it's simply being called names by someone, that's one thing, but having someone (even worse, in Itagaki's case, since it's his boss) going to the people you work with, who are supposed to take orders from you, and talking behind your back, along with essentially turning the people you have to work with against you can be a major issue. If any of the employees working under Itagaki agree with Yusada, and say things to Itagaki's face, that undermines his authority, along with creating unnecessary stress, and reducing productivity. Essentially, Yusada has made Itagaki's job hell, and Itagaki is fighting back.

Just because you can't really do anything about it most of the time, doesn't mean that it's right. Just like bullying in school, in the grand scheme of things, it's nothing big, but it can be bad enough to make kids go insane and shoot up their school. Obviously, younger people are more vulnerable to bullying and such, but it's never fun to be bullied, and there are few times when anything CAN be done about it, so when there is, why not take it? Why not make Yusada think again before he opens his mouth and says something insulting or offensive about someone working for him.

Hell, Itagaki might have been able to charge Yoshimi Yasuda for harassment or some other such crime, if he really wanted to.

Of course, most aspects of harassment require actual mental or physical injury, but that is somewhat mitigated by the fact that they already have a reason to sue, in cases like Itagaki's.

After using my Nikon F4 for so long, going back to my D40 to take a few shots was...an experience.

The knobs on the F4 are ridiculously convenient.  I mean, look at this:

(http://files.spectere.net/pictures/photos/f4-knobs.jpg)

Shutter speed, exposure compensation.  No need to wade through menus, no need to so much as remove your eye from the viewfinder.  Notice that the mode selection (i.e. something you won't want to do much) is located around the shutter release (out of focus in the picture).  Furthermore, it's locked -- you have to hold down a small button to change modes.

Now take a look at the D40:

(http://files.spectere.net/pictures/photos/d40-modes.jpg)

It's funny.  Now when I go to change shutter speed on the D40 I wind up changing modes (the control that I want is the mostly-internal knob on the back, not the one on the top).  For some reason, changing the mode on the D40 is as easy as changing the shutter speed on the F4.  Yikes.

I've also taken to going for the lens to change the aperture now.  The F4 can fully control the aperture on-camera, but only in programmed modes.  The D40 can only control the aperture on-camera.  Now I keep grabbing for the base of the lens rather than holding down the aperture button (to the lower-right of the shutter release in the picture) and flicking the adjustment knob.

The AF and AE locks are much easier to get to on the F4 as well.  On the D40 it's to the immediate right of the viewfinder (you can see the top of the button on the picture above) so you have to kind of squeeze your thum between your face and the camera to get to it.  On the F4 one can easily hit it by extending their index finger while gripping the camera.  It's hard to hit by accident yet easy to hit when you want it.  The AE-L is also a seperate key altogether -- located under the AF-L -- so you can choose to have both, neither, or either.  It's awesome.

But anyhoo, that'll be enough for now.  I guess I should probably drive home...I've spend enough time sitting in a parking lot and working. :S

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on June 03, 2008, 06:25:13 PM
Damn I wish I had a nice camera :[

The D40 is pretty cheap as far as digital SLRs go.  The kit comes with the camera body, a battery (with charger), a USB transfer cable, and a Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G (which is a damn fine lens).  Final price: $500 ($550 in some stores...don't pay any more than $550 for the kit though!).  The only thing you need above and beyond is an SD card, but those are pretty cheap (I would recommend a faster card if you want to shoot RAW, though -- a 155x card can save a full RAW file almost as fast as the camera can shoot).

Ritz Camera also has a special package that has a D40 kit (all of the above) bundled with a Nikkor AF-S DX 55-200mm f/4-5.6G for $600: http://www.ritzcamera.com/product/SLR1160.htm?bct=t1134 (http://www.ritzcamera.com/product/SLR1160.htm?bct=t1134).  You can probably get it in-store if you have one near you (I have a zillion Ritz Camera shops near me...don't know how common they are in the rest of the US) for the same amount.  The 55-200mm is a mighty nice lens...I bought one for $250.  The only difference between mine and the one in the kit is that mine has VR -- vibration reduction -- which comes in handy when shooting handheld at lower shutter speeds.

Edit: The F4 can actually be had for a bit less depending on where you look.  IIRC, I paid around $250 for the body (with the MB-21 grip) and $120 for my Nikkor AF 70-210mm f/4-5.6 lens (which included a Hoya 72mm UV filter and a pop-out rubber hood, even) -- both of which were acquired on eBay (I think Adorama (http://www.adorama.com/) has used F4s available, also.  The only problem with that is that it takes 4 AA batteries (6 if you have the MB-21 grip, 8 if you have the MB-23 grip) to operate, weighs a ton, and requires you to purchase and develop 35mm film.  It's an amazing AMAZING camera, though.

Here's a quote he's credited with by http://www.totalvideogames.com/news/Itagaki_Ninja_Gaiden_2_Is_My_Final_Instalment_13219_7010_0.htm
"It was a weird chimera of a game, with some things here and some things there. From a game design standpoint, I don't think it was done well at all. This [Ninja Gaiden II] is the definitive version of Ninja Gaiden...I look at NG2 and I think it's the culmination of everything I've done, but it's also a chance for me to change how I think about game design."

That is essentially saying whoever designed the game system (controls and such), did it poorly. Since he had nothing to do with it, he can see the flaws and differences in how he would have done it. It's not really an insult on the members of the team, they just do what they;re told, it's whoever took over his place. Itagaki is a Game Director, in charge of creative aspects of the game. He was insulting the creative direction the game took, not the team of people (he would probably agree that the higher quality graphics are nice, and that the ideas that were used were decently executed, but just because a game looks nice, and the changes are done "well" per se, doesn't mean that the game itself is good.)

An example would be my view of FF8. Sure, it has great graphics, and the GF system is well done, but I still don't like the game at all, and think the story is rather stupid. Doesn't change that the game was well put together, I'm insulting the guys in charge of the creative part.

I got a letter in the mail today about housing and it gave me my roommate's contact info. I emailed him and got his Facebook. He seems like a pretty cool guy.

Also, I've discovered that how active I am is directly proportional to how comfortable I am around the people around me and inversely proportional to how well I know them. Case in point: While playing Guitar Hero at the nerd party on Saturday I was rocking out. I didn't know the majority of people there, but I was comfortable. However, playing Rock Band last night at the whiz quiz party was not that way. I was calm, as usual, because I knew the people around me pretty well. I think it's pretty strange.

My pleasure.

One thing, if you decide to pick up a digital SLR, swing by your local drug store on the way home and grab a nasal aspirator (Rite-Aid sells a package that has both an ear syringe and a nasal aspirator -- that's what I picked up).  If you wind up getting dust on the sensor in the camera you can use these extremely cheap instruments to try and blow it free, since physically touching that insanely sensitive sensor pretty much guarantees that your warranty goes kaput (Nikon has a 5-year warranty on domestic camera bodies and lenses...I wouldn't squander it :)).  Also, microfiber cloths (http://www.target.com/Unger-Microfiber-Cleaning-Cloths-10-pk/dp/B000E48IUG/sr=1-1/qid=1212564305/ref=sr_1_1/601-3304207-7006504?ie=UTF8&index=target&rh=k%3Amicrofiber%20cloth&page=1) work wonders for cleaning off lenses.  I've used them for mine and smudges, fingerprints, everything comes off easily.  For lenses that are extremely dirty (I've only seen one and it sure as SHIT wasn't mine) a bit of moisture (read: breathe on it) and a few quick wipes is all you need.  These things are amazing.  Don't even bother with specialized lens cleaners.

It already came here? FUCK. I FUCKING hate being poor and having friends who have shit taste in music. Are they still touring Florida, because I couldn't even FIND tour dates or even see a commercial, but that was like the one show I really wanted to see.

The June 1 tour here was the last US show of the tour. Their last show, which I think is in a few days, is in Puerto Rico. >_>

Yeah, to whoever asked, BTBAM was pretty neat, and Opeth was loud. Dream Theater and Three were both jesus, though.

So today I convinced someone that we should switch over to using hydrogen rather than drill in Alaska for more oil.

If you like driving bombs on wheels with a cruising distance of a mere 100 miles on a full tank, sure. Otherwise, biodiesel.

one due to him being an ass and hanging the phone up on me, till i get an apology for that, BLOZICKOED.

the other, because he is 21 and has no license, so till he gets his drivers permit, HE REMAINS BLOCKED.  for his own good i say.

you could say i am an ass, for the first one since i provoked getting hung up on (i was pissed).  but the second, that kid just needs to get his ass in gear.

I know it's fast food, but it's still a damn job.

But my current "dream" job is working at Blockbuster. I'd be away from food, and in a place where I relate to the customer's needs because I love movies. I applied there and am hoping to get a call soon.

Post by: vladgd on June 08, 2008, 12:20:10 AM
i played the ninja gaiden 2 demo just recently, its pretty long(for a demo of an action game), but there isn't a boss in the demo unfortunatley.

played through the entire thing using the scythe, and surprisingly, its not that hard to use (unlike nearly every non dragon sword weapon in the first game), and cutting people into pieces with a scythe is just fucking awesome.

the camera still sucks, and the demo lacked anything other than the "easy" difficulty so it was piss easy, but it was fun.  the new "dash" thing you have instead of roll works ok, i can still "dash jump dash jump dash jump" rather than what i do in the original game "roll jump roll jump, ect" so i guess it works out fine.  i mean, who the fuck really "runs" everywhere, dash jumping everywhere is faster, and saves your ass in combat.

ANYWAY, ill be going through it will all 4 weapons they give you.  also, from what ive played (im assuming its the first level, on the easiest difficulty setting) i can't really see it being "hard"(note from what ive played), your health refils after every fight, save points heal you(when you take damage, your max health goes down in a red bar, and save points and blue orbs heal that) and are EVERYWHERE, and from what ive heard, you can restart boss fights FROM THE START OF THE BOSS FIGHT, so i mean, yea.  anyway, i will buy this eventually, maby rent it and beat it, but i need to own this game, its fuckin' ninja gaiden.

ohh, and if you thought the first game was bloody, this game is like that, only 10x more gore, and dismemberment.  fits the game nicely.

BLA BLA BLA, download the demo and play it, its a good way to spend 20 minutes.

AND FINALLY TO NOTE, i did beat the original ninja gaiden on the normal difficulty(hard isn't fun, rather than running around like a mad man its more like "well im going to play REALLY FUCKING DEFENSIVE till i find an opening, attack, and wait for another opening"  this aint monster hunter)  setting on the xbox.  it was a kickass game, and i am more than half way through the game again on my second run (on the 360's hdd rather than the regular xboxes hdd)

*edit*

do y'all think i turn into bobbias when i talk about the vidya?  because ive been noticing tldr after tldr from me.  like read most of my posts in the WoW thread, if theres a vidya i like, i can ramble on and on about it.

*edit*

played through the ng2 demo again, tried the differant weapons.

dragon sword- its ok, but i found myself getting hit more often than not
claws- i don't see the appeal in this weapon, they are "fast but weak" and id rather kill a guy with 1 button press rather than 6
lunar staff- take the vigorian flails from the first game, make them into a staff, and thats this weapon, not too practical for regular enemies, but i see a use for them in swarms of small enemies

anyway, the scythe is pretty much awesome, its fairly quick, stupidly powerful, easy to use, and has good range at that.

Did you buy them from Games Workshop? Because apparently despite the fact that they are the creators, you shouldn't buy from them unless you need to. They're just so damn expensive. There are alternate places. (I can steal links from the WH40K thread in Something Awful if necessary) that, while not having the huge selection, are much cheaper.

Also yes, I want to play NG2 now. I still haven't played DMC4 (well, a little, but not even nearly enough), also why must good action game come out so damn slowly? CASUUUUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLS.

well WoW is HEAVILY based around pve, pvp servers are nothing but "pve-light" servers.  basically to hit the level cap, you must do pve content, on a pvp server, the only differance is other players can kill you and slow down your "pve grind to the level cap" down.   only at the level cap, can you start to pvp for gear, and if you want a low level twink, you had better have a high level character making gold "note more "pve"" so you can afford to buy those stupidly expensive twink gear pieces. 

from what it looks like, WAR is made from the ground up around pvp, with the ability to hit the level cap, and get the best gear, JUST BY FUCKING AROUND KILLING OTHER PLAYERS IN PLAYER VS PLAYER COMBAT(note, you gain xp from killing other players).  it has pve content, which actually contributes to the pvp war effort, but this stuff is OPTIONAL and you DO NOT HAVE to do it.

so as much as they "look" similar, they seem to be quite differant.  but i can't really say much till its out in retail and people are playing it. 

anyway, hype is bad, and the game comes out "fairly" soonish (q3-q4 08) so we will wait and see if its worth the price of admission, let alone the monthly fee.

i really should make an "mmo general" thread.  im honestly not much into the genre (seriously, besides WoW, and being hyped for WAR, i see no interest in any other mmo games) but i see myself typing TLDR after TLDR about the stuff i am into.

as for the action game comment, remember when halo came out, people decided the only games that would be made are CONSOLE SHOOTAN GAEMS(FFFFF pc > console in terms of shootans).  so until they come out with a kickass action game with kickass online multiplayer (this = lots of games sold, unfortunately) continue to see few good action games coming out.

Action games don't really translate that well into multiplayer. Really, all I can see happening is just a crappy fighting game, maybe in an arena with several people, but then you'd need some sort of cast/customizable charecters.

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: vladgd on June 10, 2008, 02:10:53 AM
i kind of raged from it

but i mean, halo DID basically make the xbox into what it is today.  i wouldn't have gotten an xbox without halo, hell, i hated fps games before halo. 

and the word "best fps" is kind of deceiving, goldeneye as number 1 on the "best fps" list, i disagree with(its almost unplayable today).   but if it was a list of the most important fps games, i can see it ranking up pretty high, with wolfenstein 3d being number 1.

but whatever, they did have reasons for putting what they did on the list.  however, i would have added ut99, and the original half-life. 

i mean, half-life has like the best single player fps experiance out there.  and ut99 started the multiplayer aspect of ut, which ended up being some of the fastest multiplayer shootans out today.

anyway, SHOOTAN AND OPINIONS

Haha, I love Stuttering Craig.

And seriously, if Halo was such a bad game people wouldn't be playing it in such volumes.  Its multiplayer might not be as furious as that of the original Doom, but it's very well balanced (as of Halo 2, anyway...I haven't played Halo 3 multiplayer).  It really is a highly refined title.  Also, don't forget that it essentially brought back co-op back into the spotlight.

My only gripe is that the original Doom is nowhere on the list.  I would have probably taken out Doom 3, slid everything back, and threw it in the number one place.

So? As you said wolfenstien is lower on the list and it fucking invented FPS. Halo did nothing but push one console, woo.

Wat, Halo 3 isn't even the top played xbox live game, CoD4 is. That's on xbox live ALONE, not counting PS3 and PC numbers.

 Also Halo is fucking far from balanced, sniper can shoot just as easily non scoped as it can be scoped, due to it still having a cross hare (I don't care if it's small, it's still large enough to see). It also has no change to projection when you unscoped/walk, so accurate shooting is still mighty easy, and you have FOUR FUCKING SHOTS, when it takes 2 ANYWHERE to kill someone. Any decent person will wreck 2 people with one clip of the sniper before they can do jack shit. Also the sword can be a campers dream weapons (in a medium room). Also everything else is just shit compared to snipers, rockets, and the sword.

It also has no change to projection when you unscoped/walk, so accurate shooting is still mighty easy, and you have FOUR FUCKING SHOTS, when it takes 2 ANYWHERE to kill someone. Any decent person will wreck 2 people with one clip of the sniper before they can do jack shit.

And the maps are designed in such a way that the snipers can get raped.  And the game is designed so that they can be easily knocked about.

And seriously, try actually tacking a moving target, unscoped.  It's not that easy to do it accurately.  The only way you'd be able to accurately track someone at enough of a distance where they can't destroy you with assault rifles is if you're insanely steady, your sensitivity settings are low enough that CQB is impossible, or the other player isn't even trying.  Seriously, I can't think of a single instance where a sniper was able to take me down unscoped and I'm certainly not a good Halo player.

If the sniper rifle were as good as you're trying to imply, nobody would bother with assault rifles.  In my experience, people gravitate towards BRs.

Also the sword can be a campers dream weapons (in a medium room).

Step 1) Pick up shotgun.
Step 2) When you see swordsman, start shooting.
Step 3) Teabag your attacker's corpse.

Also everything else is just shit compared to snipers, rockets, and the sword.

No shit, of course they're more powerful.  That's why they have a fairly limited amount of ammo and you end up wasting a valuable weapon slot when you have them.  A person with a rocket launcher and a sniper rifle isn't going to be much of a threat in close-range combat unless they're really goddamn good (and even then they're at a heavy disadvantage).

Spec, I haven't got much to say, thanks to your pointing out pretty much everything I was gonna say about Halo. Sure, it didn't invent the genre, but it certainly brought the genre to where it is today. It IS well balanced (From the amount I've played anyway). I've got no gripes at all about the game, aside from maybe wanting more maps (which is only a minor gripe at best).

I've found the Halo games extremely enjoyable. And as for Goldeneye, while it's very hard to play now, due to the newer games and such, it is certainly an amazing game. What halo did for the Xbox/current FPS situation, Goldeneye is pretty much the N64 equivalent. I absolutely fell in love with that game, and have not found a better N64 shooter, period.

If the sniper rifle were as good as you're trying to imply, nobody would bother with assault rifles.  In my experience, people gravitate towards BRs.

unscoped in a close to medium range is exactly like shooting someone from a distance with the scope, it's just that you can see more and they'll probably try to move a bit more to dodge you. Also the reason people like BR is because it's flexible, and it's basically the only thing that can combat the sniper at distance, every other gun at any half decent range just shits on its self when trying to hit someone.

Step 1) Pick up shotgun.
Step 2) When you see swordsman, start shooting.
Step 3) Teabag your attacker's corpse.

Good luck finding the shotgun first, it's usually just as rare as the sword on maps that have both. that and they're still is the uncertainty with it.

Also the rocket lawchair is at it's best in medium range, just jump and remotely shoot at their feet. Splash damage always catches them.

I've got no gripes at all about the game, aside from maybe wanting more maps (which is only a minor gripe at best).

I hardly find it balanced, the only way to beat someone with a power weapon is to find them first, start shooting them before they damage you (also another thing I absolutely HATE about halo, letting a person get behind you and shoot you with any half decent gun basically means you are as good as dead, due to their not being any real body weak points) and hopefully kill them before they notice you.

Also about map balance, it's also bad. Snipers on that one big map with 2 bases have the roof to start at, and also have teleporters to run if they start to be approached from too many people. Also on that smaller metal map that "floats", the sniper has one of the highest spots on the map and only one walk way to get up to it, so any half decent person will unscope time to time to check his back.

Also I've never played an older UT game, just one that was on my friends old xbox. ;_;

Also the reason people like BR is because it's flexible, and it's basically the only thing that can combat the sniper at distance, every other gun at any half decent range just shits on its self when trying to hit someone.

Ever outsnipe someone with the handgun? I have. It's not that hard. Honestly, if you know someone has the sniper on you, and it's 1v1, you still ahve a pretty good chance, unless you are in an absolutely horrendous place.

Good luck finding the shotgun first, it's usually just as rare as the sword on maps that have both. that and they're still is the uncertainty with it.

I've never had a problem with that. Considering the shotgun pis pretty much the equivalent of the sword in power, and has better range, it SHOULD be as rare as the sword. And me, a rather below average player managed to get 8 consecutive kills with the shotgun against a friend who owns the game and is much better than I am, who was using the sword.

Also the rocket lawchair is at it's best in medium range, just jump and remotely shoot at their feet. Splash damage always catches them.

How many times have I done well with the rocket launcher at medium range? Not many, considering most of the time people can see that giant thing and dodge the blast, or kill you. Rockets are slow and cumbersome, and only really useful when people aren't looking at you (or you've gotten the cloacking).

I hardly find it balanced, the only way to beat someone with a power weapon is to find them first, start shooting them before they damage you (also another thing I absolutely HATE about halo, letting a person get behind you and shoot you with any half decent gun basically means you are as good as dead, due to their not being any real body weak points) and hopefully kill them before they notice you.

And real life IS balanced? Guns work like this: if you shoot someone before they shoot you, they will die. Doesn't it make sense that a game should also work like that?
I've seen lots of times where I've snuck up on someone and ended up getting killed, because either A) they had a better weapon, B) they were able to use grenades, or C) they were able to get away from me before I could kill them, and then attacked and killed me.

Also about map balance, it's also bad. Snipers on that one big map with 2 bases have the roof to start at, and also have teleporters to run if they start to be approached from too many people. Also on that smaller metal map that "floats", the sniper has one of the highest spots on the map and only one walk way to get up to it, so any half decent person will unscope time to time to check his back.

You mean Blood Gulch and Boarding Action. I would assume from the fact that you had to describe the maps that you haven't played all that much. Blood Gulch has many pitfalls for the unweary sniper, considering even if you're on the top of the buildings, you're pretty out in the open. Not to mention people can toss grenades up there without your noticing if they're half decent. That map is a much more close range based map, not a sniper map, since there are only about 3 places for any sniper to be useful.

Boarding Action is a fun map. Any half decent sniper would get the fuck out of that sniper platform. If they didn't, someone would murder them the second they noticed that someone got sniped. Oh, and I mentioned out sniping a sniper with a handgun? That was in that level. using the x scope in the handgun, I was able to beat someone using a sniper on 10x (which is justified, due to the length between the 2 platforms). I even found a way to throw grenades through the bunker windows in that level, throwing them across the entire distance of the gap. Great way to get someone when they're not expecting it.

k so on the kojima interview on the "on the spot" show, kojima pretty much confirmed that the metal gear franchise will continue.

just because the story with solid snake was wrapped up, doesn't mean the metal gear series is dead.  i hoped to eventually hear this when i heard "mgs4 is the last metal gear solid game FEATURING SOLID SNAKE" as in, there will be more metal gear, there already is more metal gear in metal gear online.

blablabla, more metal gear in the coming years + kojima can work on his other franchises, lets cross our fingers for a ZoE 3

but from the sounds of it, he is looking to create a new series, and this isn't a bad thing.

but from the sounds of it, he is looking to create a new series, and this isn't a bad thing.

I was JUST discussing this with a friend. I read a little thing in the instructional hand book (my mate bought it because he likes to draw [sold a few painting for 100+ dollars, if I'm not mistaken]) and it showed Kojima saying how 2 was supposed to be the end, then he made 3 and his fans still said "lol wut".

Also god yes, more zone of enders, hopefully with a new orbital frame, or maybe even multiple ones (unlocking and playing as bosses in duels in 1 was fun as hell).

Also also, speaking of metal gear, I just watched a friend play a little bit of it, and the opening movie is the biggest WTF moment I've ever seen in any game ever. It's a lady on a game show (with all live actors, and really fancy CGI around them) and she picks a category about private military something, and she's asked a question about which unit has a combined population of Canada, and Mexico. She gets the question wrong, it being the praying mantis unit, and then it shows snake entering a battle field.

Then it shows some Gekko units running around, and they are insane. Also he's hardly played, but he has several rifles, along with a silenced pistol and a tranq gun, and it seems you can use MGS3 style CQC, but you have the regular MGS health system, and the stamina bar under his health has something to do with his nano machines and using guns.

Heh, I confirmed with my dad that it's an IE8 issue.  Windows Update works fine when you use IE7 emulation.  I'm sure that'll be fixed by the time it gets released.  At least Vista has a standalone Windows Update application.  My dad (who's running XP) has to keep activating IE7 emulation to update his system.

That said, IE8 is pretty badass.  It's nice to see that Microsoft is actually shooting for standards compliance now.  The rendering engine is capable of passing Acid2 now, they just need to set the browser so that you don't need to specifically tag web pages to disable the IE6/7 crappiness emulation engine.

terrible as in IE6? Or would IE6 be considered far worse than "terrible"?

I'd say worse than terrible simply for the lack of tabs.  IE7 is "terrible."

Like I said, IE8 is actually pretty good.  The rendering engine is very solid, probably as good as FF3's in full standards compliance mode.  As far as security is concerned, that hasn't been proven yet.

Only website my IE6 has been to was mozilla.com to download firefox. =o I simply refuse to use IE6 for any reason. Its security holes are far too numerous as well as dangerous.

The security holes have pretty much all been patched.  Microsoft is actually far better about patching security vulnerabilities than Mozilla is.

The main reason you get so many IE users with spyware and crap is because they press "ALLOW" for absolutely everything.  Considering spyware "vendors" are rolling out Java-powered installers nowadays, Safari, Opera, and Firefox are no more safe than IE is to an untrained luser.

ok for the first time in a long time, i did stuff with friends from shortly after i woke up(little earlier than 2pm) to later in the night (bout 12:10am).

wake up
head to friends house
take off to the next town with said 4 friends
buy stuff in the "hall of heroes" (its an rpg shop)
eat
go back, do some dungeon crawling in our 4th edition game
after a big encounter, get food/eat s'more
go back to said dungeon and continue the game (the dungeon we are in is XBAWX HUEG)
finish off some battles, including an ooze solo monster, almost finish off the FIRST LEVEL of the dungeon, call it a day

so pretty much, about 7ish hours of playing in the one level of a dungeon, but its awesome, and 4th edition is awesome, and screw the haters.

level 3 dwarven cleric beeotch! 

and i can't possibly see how you can disslike fourth edition, it's just more fun to play, and they improve on a lot of things.

one thing i especially like

say you roll a 20 to crit, in 3.5 you would need to re-roll to "confirm" the critical, and then "roll" the damage, so IF you make the critical, you could still do less damage than a standard attack.

in fourth edition, when you roll a 20, you hit, and you do max damage, and its awesome.

plus the dragonborn could make for some pretty good scalie pronz, the artwork in the players handbook is frekaan awesome.  not to mention the players handbook is COLORFUL, and the artwork is better because of this.

Post by: Bobbias on June 17, 2008, 01:06:34 PM
Not all that much. I used to do 3 or 4 mile walks fairly consistently for a while. I'd walk home from school on the other side of town (takes me something like 30 minutes if I'm going as fast as I can, and it's not too hot out, average between 40 and 45 minutes) and I'd walk nearly every day Monday to Friday. I didn't lose any weight.

Actually, I've only lost weight one way: when my depression lifted in grade 10, or so, shortly after I met my girlfriend, I lost about 30 lbs, dropping from 160 to 130. Now I average about 135 to 145.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Sqthreer! on June 17, 2008, 01:20:15 PM
How much weight you lose really depends on your diet, too. If you consume more calories than you're burning then you probably won't lose weight :|

But that's interesting how you lost all that weight after the depression lifted. I usually hear about people losing weight because they're depressed.

Also, that awesome girl gets here in about an hour :D :D
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on June 17, 2008, 02:21:20 PM
Heh, nice.

Well, when you're depressed, your metabolism generally slows down, I believe. Also, those people probably aren't eating as much as they would when they were happy. However, I think it's kinda weird, when I lose the weight, I was eating a large poutine most days of the week, which is FULL of fat (about 3x your daily recommended intake), and has some ridiculous amount of calories in it. I kept eating those at the exact same pace over the few months that I lost the weight in.

Wow, fuck DV tapes, fuck FireWire.  Turns out, my camcorder works just as nicely dumping MPEG4 videos out onto a memory stick.  It saves me a ton of time because I don't have to capture the video off the tape (in real time, might I add) and it's already in a computer-usable format, encoded at very high quality (5 mbps, even).  Best of all, it's new enough to work with Memory Stick Pro sticks, so -- assuming there aren't any software limitations with the device -- I can just stick my 2GB or 4GB MSPro Duo sticks into an adapter and jam it into the camera and I could very well end up being able to capture more video than I could to a tape.

Oh, not to mention that since the camera doesn't have to work the tape motors, it'll save a considerable amount of battery power (which is a GoodThing(TM) since the battery on that thing is practically shot).

Eat and drink a glass of milk before drinking (my mom's suggestion), then drink water when you're done (Sharde's suggestion).

I drank a lot during the new year's celebration and I suffered no ill effects.  In contrast, I forewent the milk and water during my cousin's (lol armegeddon) 21st birthday party, didn't drink nearly as much, and woke up with a mild hangover.

Not usually no, also yes, water will work. A bottle of water and a advil usually help me whenever I have a hangover.

Also as soon as my friend got in the car (took 30 minuets, which was annoying) he said "wait, was that chick ugly?".

to test this theory, i ate an entire ceasars hot and ready pizza, and i will drink an entire carton of milk today.  if im fine tomorrow (or later today for that matter) i have nothing to worry about.

I recently discovered boxer briefs. I can't STAND the feeling of just briefs, so the feeling of boxers with support of briefs = win. Usually at work I'll wear either boxers or bb, depends on a) whats clean and b) what I feel like.

Also

I don't really get sick after drinking, unless, you know, I drink too much haha :D but that happens to everyone anyway. No stomach ache, no nothin, as long as I just get buzzed or a tad over the line drunk.

Tip: Throw up, it makes everything better
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on June 19, 2008, 10:00:26 PM
Uhh, I couldn't imagine only getting slightly drink all my life. There's a difference between drunk, and drinking too much.

for me, there's something like this:
1-3 beers: Basically feeling nothing, unless I haven't eaten all day.
3-5 beers: definitely feeling something, either slightly buzzed, or heavily buzzed, depending on whether I ate a lot, or not much, and how fast I drank them.
5-10 or so: Drunk, by 10 I'd probably be bordering on having drank too much.

This is not completely accurate, because the only time I got to 8 beers, I'd been eating while drunk, and then I ate a bunch of hot peppers, which really upset my stomach, and I also had nothing to eat for quite some time before we started, and we were drinking quite quickly.

Recently, we've been ordering pizza a lot when we drink, and I usually fill up on pizza, which means I drink about 5-6 beers, and I'm full, but because of how much I ate, I'm still only buzzed.

ohh you (bob, you rage easily, CHILL PILL)

and mortified, pikmin 2 is aight.  if you liked the first pikmin, and want the 30 day time limit to not exist, you can't go wrong.

also, new av

id have cropped out the bottom a bit more, but then the face would be off center, and im not going to have a rectangle av.  a less obvious, but still decent crop job.

who had some sort of speech impediment, and said the most stereotypical asian kid things ever, like VELY FUNY, IT SOUND LIKE I STEPPING ON BIG FORTUNE COOKIES, etc

the music was cool (except for the stereotypical asian kid's theme ughhhguhfu that shit hurt), and the pulling out the heart effect was done pretty well

and there was a kickass mine cart chase that spawned all sorts of that kind of awesome shit in the Donkey Kong Country series, undoubtedly

yeah, i guess it was okay :-)

Getting it out of this thread isn't going to do anything more than make it more visible.  Plus, I don't delete posts.  Ever.*

Even when you guys delete your own posts they don't go away -- there's a hidden garbage bin forum that they all get stuffed in (that I never read, FYI), should anyone ever realize that you made a boo-boo with a delete.

Long story short: you guys work it out amongst yourselves and that'll be that.  You two are mature enough to work it out yourselves (as evidenced by the fact that you're already PM'ing each other over it) so I don't feel like I should need to get involved whatsoever.

*With the exception of dupes and "DELETE ME" edits, of course, and the occasional request.

Also back on topic. I'm fucking bored, and I want to buy a new video game, but I'm not sure which one. Possibly Red star, Pikmin 2, or one of the ace combat games on PS2. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Red Star is an excellent game that is cheap and is quite difficult. It's a beat'em up with upgradeable characters mixed with bullet hell minibosses and even a Gradius stage or two. I was very happy to spend $15 on it.

I tried Metal Gear Solid 4 on wednesday. I really wasn't impressed. It's Metal Gear and not really some massive leap forward for all mankind or whatever like all of these reviews and people have said. It's fun but Jesus I wouldn't give it above an 8. It also has the dumbest install EVER. It installs each ACT so when you finish one, whoops, another 5 minute install. Have a friend who lives with you and wants to start a new game? Whoops, have to reinstall act 1. Want to go back to your game after that? Whoops, have to reinstall the act you were on. Yeah, it sure is quicker to do that than switch out a disc huh. If the game also didn't have so much Sony/Apple fangay product placement all over it and bluray masturbation, I know for a fact it would've fit on 360 just by making it 2 dual-layered DVD's and actually compressing stuff.

I got Ninja Gaiden 2 from Gamefly and I'm not really impressed with that either. The only reason the game's hard is because enemies swarm you and you can't even see them half the time and they throw shuriken from off-screen constantly.

Also tried the Japanese demo of Tales of Vesperia today and found that it's entirely in English and is quite good. Lots of new stuff added onto the Abyss system, with the rather annoying FoF system gone. Good voice acting, gorgeous visuals, good music and a boss in the demo that's actually difficult. Having items in the battle environment to hit and cause effects on surrounding stuff is totally new to the series too and really adds stuff to the boss fight.

Yeah, I must say those downloads are quite the turn off. How long would it take to just individually load every part anyways?

Also the insane amount of extra stuff in the new game looks rather nice (FUCK YEAH, SOLAR GUN), and the fact that you can shoot and move, squat and move, roll and crawl is a huge improvement, but yes, paid reviewers are paid.

Yeah, it does hardware ratings.  They're fine when it comes to lower-end hardware but they are limited to 5.9, making it pretty much useless with upper-mid-range and high-end systems.

Long story short, my computer would get the same rating as a system with dual, heavily overclocked Core 2 Quads with three GeForce GTX280s.  Does that make sense?  I think not.

I just got back from riding my bike 8 miles round-trip to Wal-Mart. I bought a new Hot Wheels car for the first time in about ten years, and also a little cheap plastic ring (I didn't get the one I wanted =( but oh well)

I feel very accomplished, and tired.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Zakamiro on June 22, 2008, 03:19:58 AM
i ride 6 miles to work each day, and 6 miles back (6 + 6 = 12). About every other day I try to ride 20 miles. It's awesome exercise... But then again, I have a roadbike, so it makes it a bit easier than a mountain bike, lol. (if thats what you use.)

Edits, smilies, and parentheses:

pic: (sorry about the shadowing and BS, it's the only one I have and it's night out.)

(http://i28.tinypic.com/14cflnt.png)

Not only is it the feeling you get from accomplishing something, but the endorphins you produce when doing strenuous activity. (A sort of natural pain reliever) If you've ever heard of or are familiar with a "runner's high," (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endorphin#Runner.27s_high) you'll know what I'm talking about. Otherwise, you're producing so many endorphins that you get a buzz out of it, and your body sorta goes numb. It's also a reason why people can get addicted to running, or other physical activity... ;]

My bicycling habits may be they way they are because of this, but really, I just like to hop on my bike, and listen to music as I see the landscape. It's just fucking fun. As well as sprinting to pass cars... XD

Anyway, I don't mean to come off as boasting or anything, it's just that biking or exercising does a lot more than you'd think at first guess. I've found that once you get into the habit of regularly exercising, it's extremely hard to quit! But yeah. Keep up on the bike rides, dude. And just go explore shit. If you're not already, you'd be surprised how much company a bicycle can bring you.

This is why they make benchmarking software, though. Typical home users don't give a shit how their system compares to high performance builds.

The thing is, the Windows Experience Index (or whatever it's called) is supposed to give you an idea of what games your system can play.  If it just takes every mid-range or better system and lumps it into 5.9, what's the point?

I think the tests should be a bit more intense, the grading a bit looser (to allow the lower-end systems to actually manage 1.0-2.0 like they currently do), and the grades should go up to 10.  5.9 is a very arbitrary cutoff.  Also, with games pushing the envelope as far as graphics go nowadays (hi Crysis) the games themselves are probably going to pass the 5.9 mark for their recommended settings within a year or two.

Really, I think the index is, undoubtedly, a failure.  It doesn't help the people that have mid-range to high-end systems that don't know a whole lot about how system requirements work (which is quite common nowadays -- games that don't know much about computer hardware or software will happily drop $2000+ on a computer if it lets them play whatever they want).  Yeah, you or I will easily know whether our rigs can handle it, regardless of how 5.9 they are, but the target of the ratings -- the majority of Windows users -- will still be left in the shade.

yeah, I have been biking a lot lately. I stopped for a few months due to being busy with school and stuff, but earlier this year I was on my bike all the time, riding all over the area. I got my parents into it too, and now they explore, like, the entire northern part of my county on their bikes. I was the one that thought of/purchased bike lights for both bikes we own, so now they (and I) are legally free to bike at all hours of the day and night.

My work is 7.5 miles away, so it'd be 15 miles roundtrip. I thought of doing that a few weeks ago but my girlfriend talked me out of it. I can't honestly say I'd want to ride for an hour back home after I get off work nearing 10. Maybe once I bike more and build up my stamina it wouldn't be so ridiculous.

And I'm not sure what kind of bike I have. I think it is a mountain bike... it has 21 gears for different levels of gearage. I should probably save up for a cool bike like yours, how much did it run you?

TLDR INC

well i had an awesome 4th edition session today.

let me try to sum it up, most of the awesome came at the end.

-first encounter, everybody but me got feared into a group of zombies, took care of them easily
-second encounter was a hall with infinite spawning skeleton minions, was a bit of a pain in the ass, till the paladin figured out what to do, killing them off.
-third encounter was a skill encounter, we all rolled pretty good and passed this one without needing to go into combat

-we all decided to rest and recover-
-somebody messaged the paladin that danger is coming to the town (and we are here trying to do something to protect said town)

-the paladin because of his faith in his diety (bahamut) is compelled to leave and save the town, i go along with him(partially because of my diety, kord, so i can test my bravery and stuff.  any little thing i can do to "role play" my character, as i suck at role playing), the other 3 players stay here to complete the objective.  so we pretty much split up

-the other 3 encounter an easy zombie encounter and take it out with slightly more difficulty, but not much.

-we ride BLAZINGLY fast towards the town, arrive, and head to the graveyard where all the shenanigans is happening.
-there is a glyph we need to take out, and me the only guy with skill in arcana (not much, but its there) is the only one capable of taking out said glyph.
-we run in...and....elven archer + 2 melee zombies + 12 archer zombies....

to make the epic encounter short(k i can't really do that), we got a few minor bonuses from our gods(+5 healing, the paladin did radient damage), because this is a challenge 5 fight...with 2 people.

i spend the encounter healing myself with minor actions while "botching" a bit of arcana rolls to take out the glyph, while the paladin defends me from the melee zombies, as the archers attack the both of us. 

every turn pretty much, we lose nearly half of our total hp...so we blow all of our encounter and daily powers, and i blow all of my healing powers. 

anyway, i kick the glyph out, all the zombies die, and we ass rush the archer.  we both equally fuck her up, she runs away, paladin charges, and i finish her off with a lance of faith. 

blablabla, our characters have cajones (sp?), that was an awesome encounter, and kord had better enjoy the bravery my character just shown.

level 3 dwarven cleric (not the melee variety) and a level 3 dragonborn paladin

tldr version- play 4th edition, lessn' you are a neckbeard who can't handle change, you should definatley enjoy the changes that were made.

Exactly. I've been riding for a good while, but going to my old job and back from my old house (old old old lol jk.) took at most 35 mins there, and 20 minutes back. You'll be amazed how your body can adapt to needing more stamina.

And I'm not sure what kind of bike I have. I think it is a mountain bike... it has 21 gears for different levels of gearage. I should probably save up for a cool bike like yours, how much did it run you?

You'd know if it was anything but a mountain bike. a "21 gear" bike is extremely typical for a mountain bike. Unfortunately, mountain bikes are bad (not awful) at road use. Knobby tires, heavy hardware, and sometimes made of steel frames. Great if you want a bike that can survive falling 24 feet, bad if you're trying to get places efficiently. (or climbing up hills... Oh god.) I bought mine on sale for about $500, marked down from a retail price of $800 something. ($8xx) I honestly don't regret buying my bike a single bit. Well, perhaps if I had wanted to wait to get it in a larger frame size, but that's about it. I've got about a 35" inseam, and yeahhh. Anyway, most bike shops will tell you to not spend less than a grand on a road bike, because usually stock derailleurs suck on bikes less than that price point. My front forks are made of carbon fiber, (which sucks because the rear fork or frame being made of carbon fiber would have been far superior) and that prolly hiked up the price a little bit. If you intend on buying a road bike, be sure to give it a thorough test ride on it before you get it, and try to push it hard, to see its performance barriers and such. Also, never ride with your weight fully on the seat. It'll make your sit bones hurt like hell, and that lost weight could have been used for extra torque on the pedal crank. In fact, pros don't really sit on their seats, they instead use them to give them an idea on how high to squat while riding, and to provide rest when going downhill. Expect to feel every single bump in the road, my tires are at 120-125 PSI, with no suspension. Also another reason you don't entire sit on the seat. xD

Anyway, I've gone on way too long about it, and I'd rather not have to keep typing and ranting.



wordage

Exactly, the windows experience index is nothing more than some haphazard hardware rating tool. Both you and I know that there's way more that can explain a hardware component's performance than a single index rating. Two different components can get the same rating, but have different performance capabilities under different applications. (applications, not like computer applications. Ok, well maybe those too.)

To this day, I STILL find nothing wrong with "Minimum system requirements" on the side of PC game boxes. If someone is too much of a fuck-wit to know if they are able to play Crysis on their PC, will they even know how to play it or install it? Or howabout effectively managing the computer?

I find the lack of interest in trying to understand technology to be a complete loss for many people, and it's that sorta thing that causes these things. :\

ANYWAY, WEI should be treated as nothing more than an approximation, and using the old way of knowing if stuff works is prolly best.

I do, for the simple reason that I got burned repeatedly with it.

My old system was just under a couple of the recommended requirements for Oblivion and matched it in other ways (Oblivion recommended a P4-3.0, 1GB of RAM, GeForce 6800; my old system has a P4-2.8, 1GB of RAM, and a GeForce 6600GT).  The "required" hardware is only a P4 2.0, 512MB of RAM, and a "128MB Direct3D compatible video card."  Basically, they're saying that you can allegedly run Oblivion with a GeForce FX.

It was unplayably slow.  Even with everything turned down as far as it can possibly go the system couldn't maintain a stable, or even playable framerate.  It was okay when walking around, but it would drop down to as low as 5-10fps whenever more than a single enemy would come on screen.  Oblivion even manages to cause my new system to stutter occasionally, moreso than Crysis!

Black & White also fucked me over several years ago.  When that came out, my system was well over the recommended requirements.  The game slowed down so badly at some points that, if I were to guess, it wasn't pushing more than 10fps.  What's worse, B&W relied on mouse gestures.  It was literally impossible to do them with low framerates.

Nothing like having to wait several years to be able to play games because the developers/publishers flat-out lie on the back of the box.

Thankfully, not all companies are sleezy with their system requirements.  Quake and Quake II both "required" a Pentium to run, yet they ran acceptably on my old 486 (Quake II definitely ran worse than Quake, of course).  My laptop has some pretty low-end graphics hardware (RADEON X300) and it was able to run Unreal Tournament 3 at a smooth framerate with the default settings.

Exactly.  They gave the system roughly two years of life with the hardcore games.  The indie and casual gaming markets won't have any issues with that system, though they don't typically exceed 2.0 anyway (that said, I'm curious to see what Peggle requires...I'll have to check that out when I get back home :P).

I feel your pain. I hazard a guess that my system (512 or 768 MB ram, I think, it was a P3 866 mhz, and an Nvidia Geforce FX 6200) ran oblivion at all lowest setting at an average of 4 FPS.

as i log on today, i see that the horde of zombies in front of the building had open access to the building because of me, killed all of the survivors, and ruined the building.

That is pretty beast, even tho I'm not sure how that game is played. Also my sister has a working Mac laptop, and still uses the only other working PC ALL DAY, FOR LIKE, 3 DAYS all because she's doing math homework. Even tho 50% of the time it looks like she's watching random videos off of youtube and just generally dicking around on the internet.

After spending the entire day in Japan Town in San Francisco with my Girlfriend I took part in a life changing moment. I took the Scientology stress test. A group of Scientologists in the Bart station had a booth set up to sell some fucking book by L. Ron Hubbard. Anyways, they were giving people free stress tests at the booth. Basically, you grab two metal sticks, they turn this machine on, a needle moves. While holding the metal sticks they ask you questions that should spark some sort of stress in you. I just started squeezing the paddles with different pressures to see if it did anything, and it did. The harder I squeezed, made the needle jump everywhere. FUNFUNFUNF I WUZ XCITED GUIZ, but to top if off there was a group of /b/tards hanging out around the outside of Bart station. They all had EFG masks and protest signs on and were dancing to techno beats. I started walking out there dancing and my girlfriend asked me what I was doing. I told her it was cool, and walked outside to meet my dancing /b/rothas and yelled, "SHOOP DA WHOOOOOOOOOP." Then I took my train homeand explained myself, I almost slipped up and told her about 4chan.


TL;DR EPIC DAY SCIENTOLOGY

I almost slipped up and told her about 4chan.

That would have been a mistake.

Also, in unrelated news, I just had a extreme pokemon battle in pokemon coliseum. I fucked up, which ended up in him having 3 full pokemon, and me having my almost dead hitmonlee and zapados. So, I fight his articuno, and zapados paralyzed him. Then I used thunderbolt, which killed him in 2 hits. His next pokemon was flareon, I used flash and screwed his accuracy so his first attack missed, I hit him with thunderbolt, which hurt, then he hit me and I died. Next up was hitmonlee, who used siesmec (spelling?) toss and killed him Then on his last guy, he kills me.

I've been watching the Euro Cup but the semifinals and the finals tomorrow all have occurred on days I've had to work so I couldn't watch them, and before I could get a chance to watch any replays I've had the scores spoiled for me.

:/

Anyway, I got my R4 the other day and I have to say it's one of the best gaming decisions I've made in a while. For less than $50 I get to play whatever game I want from any region I want. I get to try out shit that I never could before and get to carry multiple games on one little device, not to mention the ability to play music on it. It's fucking amazing.

Also, I should express my love for the Etrian Odyssey games with this post. Fuck yeah at hard shit where you have to collect and battle and do other random shit for really no reason at all. I love that shit in my games. I guess that's why I like Dark Cloud 2 and Disgaea so much.

Unless you like minimalistic game play, you're not going to like it, then again I liked it a lot. Also look for big climbable trees, shoot their fruits, and then collect them, same can be said for lizards with shinny tails (one of them is at every save shrine, you just have to look hard).

Also, I was gonna see Wanted with a bunch of friends tonight, but my girlfriend (who is 16) wouldn't have been able to get in, so I just chilled with her instead.

Torres may be girly, but between him and Villa they've got some good offense. And their ball control is pretty wicked.

I'm surprised that they had such a long slump, with they way they played this year. Hopefully this will continue.

it goes both ways.  you get the people who refuse to play jap games, and you get the people who refuse to play american/non japanese games.

also, with every game ever, there is bitching, this is not new.

and and and, because this is sort of gaming related, the only games im really looking forward too (like games i will actually buy) is soul calibur 4, WAR, and that one game...whats it called...OHH YEAH, diablo 3.  (theres a few others, but those are the main 3, like sc2 would be in there, but with all the ballance they need to do, i wouldn't be surprised if it came out AFTER diablo 3.)

also because im a dick, nigger, chink, jew, heeb, wetback, [insert racist comment here]

Yeah probably. The game had the best pacing ever. Every single location you go to furthers the story (the game's really only something like 15 hours if you rush), the magic/tech system was awesome and extremely innovative (whole battle system was really), no random battles (which was, in normal RPGs, a first I think?), characters that were extremely fleshed out and an overall plot that was very deep and engaging.

Aspidochelone/Nidhogg/King Behemoth: Random spawn off of Ada/Faf/Behe. First chance to spawn 3 kills from last kill, will spawn at most in 7 kills.
Cerberus/Khimaira/Hydra: 24-36 hours from last death, ABSOLUTELY NO WINDOWS. No way to know when the hell it'll pop.

Then we all went to a much bigger pirate themed party in a really nice house. I saw a friend I haven't seen in about a year and a few others that I hadn't seen in a long time, it was rather awesome. Also this house had a house trained pig, that had its own litter box. Then after all that me and a few friends went to my house and lit off fireworks until a cop came up and told us to stop, then me and my other friend had an extremely nerdy conversation about video games.

so its not just my ceasars.  its like a gamble with my money every time i get one, 1/3 of the time, i will get a spectacular pizza that i can't stop eating.  2/3 of the time, it has too much sauce or some other defect to make it less appetizing, ill eat it, but there will be roughly 1/3 of the pizza left over that i won't eat.

Little Caesar's used to be my favorite pizza place but I haven't had it in like 12 years. Only one around is take-out only.

I know of one Little Caesar's pizza near me, and that's in the nearly-defunct Parkway Center Mall.  It and Phantom of the Attic are pretty much the only two reasons to even set foot in that building anymore.  Hell, two of the three floors are blocked off, and I think the K-mart the pizza joint is in is one of five functioning stores in the whole place. 

I used to think it was the best pizza around here and for the best price.  (Says a lot about pizza around here...)  I knew of a good place, but it's rather expensive.  With the stupid little midget midget, I can feed a group of DnD players for about $15.  xD

And then my friend Brandon introduced me to a place nearby.  Sunset Pizza.  Mmm...@_@  It's a little more expensive than Little Caesar's, but you get a lot more pizza and the quality is steady.  Steady and orgasmic.

...

I must have some.  o_o

Post by: vladgd on July 07, 2008, 02:27:02 PM
well i mean, ceasars is pretty much there just because its cheap food.  i mean, an entire pizza for $5.00, that can easily make two people from hungry to content.

but i mean, just about every other pizza joint around here has a better quality pizza, so if you feel like getting a single orgasmic pizza, you are going to have to pay out what would get you two hot n' ready pizzas.  which normally isn't a problem, but as you said (jupi) if its something like feeding the dnd group, you can't go wrong with cheap fast pizza.

not to mention i know about three people that work there, and ive walked in with $5.00, and walked out with $4.00, two large pizzas, and some breads.  they can't quite do stuff to that magnitude anymore (the higher ups, not the manager because hes awesome, but they are keeping track of stuff), but i can still nab some free bread, maby a soda from time to time.

There were posters of her in MGS4, so I googled the name and liked what I saw (really too skinny, but that's besides the point). Then I looked at her age and realized that I was older, this kind of freaked me outfor 30 seconds and still makes me feel weird.

I just deleted my porn folder to free up some space, since I hadn't actually used it since I don't even remember. As such, I forgot I made it invisible (not hidden, actually invisible), and I forgot where I'd put it.

In other news, I found a copy of Ender's Game on a bookshelf in my house, so I started reading it. I haven't voluntarily read a book since I read Dan Brown's Deception Point over a year ago.

Also, I hate being a slow reader.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on July 08, 2008, 04:32:29 AM
I like being a relatively quick reader. I think part of the reason I'm a quick reader is because I've been reading heavily for pretty much all of my life, and I learned to read early.

Enders Game is an awesome book, and Orson Scott Card is a great writer, too bad I don't own any of the other books in that series.

If I read too fast, the words get out of order in my head. Sometimes a few words will mix together. Like, if I see "shell, "like," and "fame" on separate lines really fast, all I'll read is the word "shake" until I reread it. I can't really read much faster than I can talk.

I can skim really quickly, but at that speed I'm actually reading subconsciously, I can't really recall the words, but I know what it said. However, my average reading speed is somewhere around 100 pages an hour.

But I would definitely say that I've had a couple reasons for reading as much as I have. My parents taught me to read before kindergarten (which IIRC I went into when I was 3, because we have 2 years of it sometimes). I was such a good reader by then that none of the shitty books they had interested me, because I'd read them once and get bored. The other part is that when I was being bullied and shit in school, part of my way of dealing with shit wa escapism, and I could manage to lose myself in a book in such a way that I was completely occupied by the book, and didn't have to think about schol, and all that shit. So there are really 2 primary reasons I read so much.

However, since then, I've come to really enjoy reading without using it as a form of escape. Unfortunately, I'm rather picky about stuff I read. If it's fantasy, it has to conform to what I want very heavily. It can't be any of those shitty fantasy books aimed at "young adults" or teenagers, it has to be a completely serious, well written story with characters that aren't childish and preferably a complex plot. It also has to be long. Half the time I pick up a new series, it's either because the books were huge, or because the plot sounds interesting. And by interesting, I mean complex and most likely involving some form of magic that isn't simply "Oh, I can cast spells".

Considering how awesome the Hellboy comics are, I thought the movie was going to be kickass, but it was the complete opposite. It was... ssakcik. I am not interested in seeing the second one.

BUT CHECK IT

I am in charge of watering the plants while my dad and step-mom are away, and I was watering the ones by the sidewalk just a few minutes ago. Then I noticed this really hot girl was jogging on her way down the sidewalk toward me, so I turned the hose off and stepped back. I said "hi" as she passed and she stopped and said, "Could I get a spray? It's really hot ;D" (and yes, she actually did say ";D") so I was like SURE and proceeded to spray her down. She thanked me and went on her merry way. It was sweeeeet.

how the fuck do you get even BAD(i am worse than bad) at an rts game?

i just don't get it, starcraft is retarded and for savants only.  but warcraft 3 is managable for the most part because it requires less apm to be "decent".  i mean, i USED (back before arch0wl, or rhythm games in general) to be decent (like a 40% winrate on battle.net) but now i can't do shit.

i played a game on battle.net and well it didn't go well, then i played a game against an EASY bot, and it literally went the same.  like they were both nightelves, and they both got those cat riding glaive throwing bitches, and they had like a control group of them, which just rape the 70% of a control group of grunts i have, so i pretty much have to gg right after the first encounter.

now i remember to get decent, you need to lose....a lot, and get used to losing, and try to make the most out of every game, but c'mon.  i shouldn't get slaughtered that bad when im making units as fast as they come out of the barracks.

anyway, /rant, and rts games are annoying to get to a non suck level at.  its not like an fps where you die, and then spawn a second later, its more like you spend 10 minutes building up...GET FUCKED IN THE ASS, gg, and have to do all that shit all over again.

RARARANRANNNTNTNTNTNRAAGGEEEE

also, ironically, the fist game on battle.net i played was a 4 man ffa, literally an hour after i got the game....and i won.

1000th post for Bobbias WHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!


Anyway, I saw this badass bug flying around while I was watering the plants today, and with closer inspection after it landed on a leaf, I discovered it was either making out with, or eating the face of a regular garden spider. Since bugs are known to eat each other, I assume it was the latter. But either way, it was awesome to see, because the spider was all freaking out and the bug (which I have identified as a black wasp (http://bugguide.net/images/cache/0K9KLKWKIKT0UQLSUQY0BQF0AQDK5K1K5KHS4KLS4KVK4KBK8KVK7KAK5KTK8KJ08KVK4K1KXK1KUQLSBQCK4K30.jpg)) was totally calm and just happily munching away at its opponent's face parts. Anyway, the point of this story is that nature is awesome and there are certain things you just don't get to see when you're in front of a computer screen all day. And if anyone decides to link me to a Youtube video of a black wasp eating a spider, I'm going to be very sad :\

On the bright side, I'll be able to get started with it today.  I could have been able to get a character going last night if Blizzard actually distributed the latest version with their client download package.  Argh.  I had a feeling I should have sprung for the streaming demo, but I dislike waiting for things to download while I'm moving around (the install-as-you-go version of Guild Wars is beyond annoying, for example).

That's what I love about EVE.  When I download the version that they have on their web site (which, unlike WoW, doesn't require me to jump through hoops -- it's readily available) I know that I'll have the latest version.  Hell, even if I installed an old version it would bring me up-to-date quickly, with a one-step patching system.  EVE has, by far, the best update system I've seen in an MMO.

well if you have any questions about that blasted WoW game, newf or I can answer most of anything about it.

i haven't played the darned thing in some 7 months, but i still feel like i have WoWikki in my brain.

hey what about me

what about you?

i just figure newf and i have done the raid thing, and have had high levels for a long time now, and because of that, know a fair bit about the game more than the average "i hit max level post tbc" person.

anyway Monroeville, in urban dead is getting scarey.

50ap a day (same as in malton) but like if you die, YOU DIE FOR REALZ.  if you are a zombie, and take a headshot, YOU ARENT GETTING BACK UP.  so im all level 9 survivor, and every building that isn't the one im in (which is max level of barrication) has zombies in it.  zombies are everywhere, and i don't have the ap to migrate away.  so im going to hope that either

A- when i log on tomorrow the zombies haven't broke down the barricade
B- when i log on tomorrow the zombies attacked people that aren't me in the building i am in so i can escape to safety.

like, when i get enough xp to buy one more skill, i am level 10, when i get 100xp after that, i can buy headshot.  when i get headshot, killing zombies, means killing zombies.  so before i die, i hope i can perma kill several people (or several hundred if i am lucky)

I just watched Superhero Movie with a couple of my friends. We all went into it expecting it to be completely horrible like the last few parody movies, but it was actually really funny. The plotline was coherent and the jokes didn't completely revolve around toilet humor. Admittedly, a few of the jokes were carried out too long, but it was still a fairly good movie.

Apparently there is now a way to play PS2 ISOs without modding a system. It's just a specific memory card exploit and a patch for the ISO so the system recognizes it as a DVD Video disc. Huh.

Sounds similar to the M33 driver for the PSP.

So I just drank a 32oz Monster and I don't feel any different. This is weird because I almost never drink anything caffeinated. If I drink a soda, it's Sprite or root beer. I don't know how I have this tolerance for caffeine, but I do and it's stupid.

Well, let's see,there's the memory card exploit that essentially makes the PS2 operate some executable code off the memory card when a certain CD is read (triggered by the SLUS code), so using that they could manage to do it. Does that system require a harddrive or anything?

No, that would just be HD Loader. This is something new.

Well, it could be based on the idea of making it run code off the memory card. It could be set so that any SLUS code will trigger this code to be run, and that code is designed to load a game, regardless of whether it's official or not.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Eggman on July 17, 2008, 07:33:58 PM
Ah, another fun thing to note. It is actually possible to use the new exploit to make the memory card be the only thing needed for HD Loader. It actually adds a menu to the dashboard for the PS2 that lets you browse the system files for the PS2, anything on disc, access HD Loader and a bunch of other stuff. It even has a customizable GUI.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on July 17, 2008, 07:45:53 PM
Yeah, it probably runs some code that sets it up so that it essentially replaces the OS in the PS2 with it's own stuff, using the memory card and HD Loader exploit, or something similar. I always wondered if something like that was possible, when I learned how you installed the HD Loader via the memory card exploit.

Shitty deal. Did the Styrofoam come off or something?

It slid down some, so the end of the PVC pipe was exposed, but it wasn't visible through the cloth. I cut a band-aid and used a small piece to hold the skin together, so I don't think I'll need stitches.

Really, it was cut because my friend used and up-to-down slice that was pretty much guaranteed to hit me in the face (which, by the way, doesn't count as a valid hit).

well i trust amazon more than ebay, and when i found a description basically saying "case, and instruction book included, dick has no scratches"

$45.00 including s/h

ORDERED

tomba 2 tomba 2 tomba 2

(http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/3085/tomba2coverer7.jpg)

will be mine AGAIN soon!

diablo 2 is my all time favorite game, but you can just walk into wal mart and buy it.

tomba 2 is my second favorite game of all time, and if you want it, be prepared to shell at least $40.00 for a decent condition used copy.

i was going to use my moneys for soul calibur 4, but fuck it, the only game better than tomba 2 is diablo 2, and i own it.

*edit* while im at it, the castlevania game for the psp is quite awesome.  no rpg bullshit (though i loved CotM, and SotN) just a journey to the end of the level to kill the boss for a red circle to get to the next level.

quite challenging, pretty old school, but with a nice new look and its really fun.  not to the mention the music is AAWEOEEOEOSOMSOMSEEEE.

The original version of Rondo of Blood is so much better than the remake. You can unlock it somehow in Dracula X Chronicles. Hell, you can unlock Symphony of the Night too. Sadly, the emulation for the original Rondo of Blood isn't that great and it pisses me off.

Also, STALKER, how is it?

shining force 3

$300.00 new

$125.00 used with case

$80.00 disc only, buffered disc

funny that a new sega saturn costs only $120.00, but this game out prices it by more than double.

wellp, i didn't like the first game, i love the second game (easy too obtain, and its the best srpg ever), and i only heard good things about the third.  maby ill pick it up if i ever decide to start a small saturn collection.

Shining Force 3 and Panzer Dragoon Saga have always been super high priced.

And you can probably get a Saturn with a bunch of not-so-rare games for $40.

If you do ever pick up Saturn stuff, look up Dragon Force, Three Dirty Dwarves, Shining Wisdom, Albert Odyssey, and my personal favorite game of all-time Guardian Heroes.

Why would you sell it when there are obviously new games still coming out for it that you want to play? Considering Pikmin 3 probably hasn't even started production yet (probably), you won't even be selling it for like...a year at least? And by that point, if you can't find a game worth playing, you're lying or haven't looked hard enough (especially since Mad World should be out by then holy crap).

I mean, are you really basing this on their E3 stuff, where they openly stated that they weren't doing anything really special for it since it had been reduced to such a small convention? I'm not sure what's up with this knee-jerk reaction everyone seems to have with E3 this year.

It's mostly due to how I've basically played what I wanted already (minus MKW) yet I really haven't played much else. I'll definitely wait for it, but I wouldn't doubt me selling it.

Went to the E.R., MD's assistant told me all about the infection and put me on:
Keflex
Vicoden 5/500's
and antibiotic ear drops.

This really isn't fun
also vicoden rules, I've never taken it before. :p

Me and some of my friends just explored the inside of this abandoned furniture warehouse. It's pretty awesome, we found an easy way in that had obviously been used before but was hidden pretty well. There was some pretty cool graffiti inside, including a peace sign in rust. We found a way to the roof, too. It would be a lot more awesome if the building was in a less urban area so more stars were visible, but it was still awesome. We had to leave about 15 minutes after finding our way inside because my friend's girlfriend had to go home and she can't drive yet. We really want to go back.

So, the AC adapter on our main router died (it's a 12V brick that was putting out nearly 16V when I checked it...oops), leaving us without shared Internet access.  That is bad.

Then the WAN port on our Linksys BEFSR41 suddenly started working again (the reason we got the newer router is because that port stopped working), letting us put things mostly back to the way they were (though we don't have enough switch ports at the moment, unfortunately).  That is good.

Hopefully the router didn't get damaged when the AC adapter blew out.  If we can revive it using a $10 brick from Radio Shack that'll be awesome (we don't have reliable wi-fi now -- we do have a US Robotics AP/router that my dad uses as an overglorified switch but it drops the signal constantly).

Eh, it's no so bad.  Like I said, at least the WAN port wound up...suddenly...working...on the BEF.  That thing's an old motherfucker.  Let's just say, the firmware that was on the unit was from September 10, 2001 (what a hell of a day to release a firmware update) and I know I updated it once or twice after we bought it.  Latest firmware for it was released in June 2004, I think.  That unit is back before Cisco bought Linksys.

I was surprised to discover that they still manufacturer the BEFSR41.  Granted, it's a newer hardware revision (we have hardware version 1.0 -- 4.3 is the latest platform version) but it's the same thing in (mostly) the same case.

Also, one thing that I'll always love about Linksys products is how easily you can update them.  tftp -i 192.168.1.1 put insertfirmwarefilenamehere.bin.  Ding! -- done.

Linksys sucks. Every some odd months my connection will just die and i'll panic and think something bad happened.

Just because your connection drops doesn't mean that it's a problem with the Linksys device.  As with any other radio signal, it's best to blame interference before you blame the device.

In my case, the US Robotics device is more than likely at fault since it is positioned in the same place as other wireless access points were and drops connections on a regular basis.  In your case, if it only drops every couple of months it's hardly fair to bash Linksys for something that (1) rarely happens and (2) is most likely caused by outside interference.

Anyone have a link to a lightweight Linux LiveCD that I can easily use to get root access? I'm trying to uninstall Ubuntu, and I read the easiest way is to delete everything on the partition save for the boot folder and edit GRUB using the Ubuntu LiveCD. That's all fine and dandy, but the only way for me to delete everything is through Windows, and I can't do that easily because of permissions. I also couldn't do that using the LiveCD because I needed root access.

Have you ever used the PSP's web browser?  Doing just about anything on that is a hassle. :P

In all honesty, it's not too terrible, but...meh.  If I was reliant on that I'd probably scream.

i used it on both the fat and slim psp. 

but, no its not a practical way to get online.  but as a person without a laptop, say i am on the shitter, or at a friends house and i need to check something online, it can be handy. 

considering the fat psp is rather laggy online, and the slim psp seems to be substantionally faster.  if you browse online every once in a while for reasons i posted, or any other practical reasons, i don't see a problem.

The only thing I really use the PSP's online for is actually internet radio. I don't have a computer of my own so if I'm just working on something in my room (cleaning, switching things around, leveling in some game, doing a puzzle, I don't know), I just turn on some anime music channel or metal or something and just put on my headphones.

But yes, overall, the PSP Slim is a vast improvement over the fat. Especially once hacked and you overclock older games. Man does it help load times on some stuff.

Holy SHIT.

Ok, 4 hours, 2 LiveCDs, several partition resizes, and a few reboots later, I finally got my computer working properly after resizing the Windows partition. Here's what happened: I deleted everything on the Ubuntu partition and redid the menu.lst in the grub folder, which worked out fine. However, there was no partitioner on the LiveCD I used. I had to burn another CD, this time remembering to put gparted in.

I booted up again, went into gparted, deleted the swap partition, and resized everything accordingly. But when I tried to reboot, I got grub error 22, which I'd earlier read meant that the partition wasn't found. I didn't realize why until I booted back up with a LiveCD: There are 2 hard drives in this computer. Recovery is hda1, main is hda2, I don't remember what was hda3, and hda4 was extended, which is made up of hda5 (swap) and hda6 (Ubuntu). When I deleted the swap partition, the Ubuntu (now just grub) partition was renamed to hda5. Grub didn't know this, it just assumed that I had gotten rid of an important part of it. So I rebooted, this time with the LiveCD that had gparted on it (I'd used the other one).

I tried simply renaming the partition, but that didn't seem to work. Eventually I resized the main partition (again), copied the grub partition (to hda6), formatted the first one (hda5) to swap, and shrunk everything down as small as possible to make room for the main partition. Now, although my computer boots properly, I have a useless 7MB swap partition.

Lesson learned: When installing anything for dual-boot on a computer that doesn't have a multi-OS bootloader, do the swap space last.

You can't just delete grub.  If you delete grub, the stage1 binary in the MBR can't find the stage2 on your ext2/ext3/reiserfs/whatever and your system will refuse to do much of anything.

The only way to completely get rid of grub is to replace the MBR using a Windows CD (or a backup boot sector, if you have one available).  You either have to use fixmbr or fixboot (one of the two, but it doesn't hurt to run both) while in the Windows recovery console.  Hilariously enough, that's about the only thing that the Windows recovery console is actually good for.

Lol, yes, yes it is. I've done that. I forgot that I needed to do that after deleting grub, but I did.

The other way is to have your grub based boot sector on one drive, and windows on a different one, and just switch your BIOS to boot the windows drive directly and delete grub.

I'm a big shit, thank you very much. <3

Also, yayz for my new StepMania setup!  StepMania 4.0 + dubaiOne + Cobalt Flux + My Old Computer + Gentoo = Yeehaw!  The only real issue that I've had is that my Cobalt Flux control box, for some reason, reports that it's a standard Xbox controller.  This wouldn't be a problem, but the xpad kernel driver refuses to map the d-pad to buttons under any circumstance if the controller is known.  I did a quick hack (i.e. forcing it to map the d-pad as buttons for that particular controller) but I think I'm going to eventually do it the right way in time (expose an option that allows someone to override those settings).  I've been keeping my changes in patch files to allow me to easily update the tree of future kernels, though considering how often xpad seems to receive updates (last update was with kernel version 2.6.16.X -- we're at 2.6.26 now, and my StepMania machine is running a 2.6.25 level kernel since that's what's marked stable in portage).

The machine is pretty nice...really a testament to Gentoo's incredible flexibility (combined with a little bit of hackery by yours truly).  It's set to auto-login root on boot on all consoles.  There are two major runlevels -- the standard "default" and "nox."  They have the same startup services, but if my additions to /etc/conf.d/local.start picks up that the user is running in the default runlevel it starts X/StepMania automagically.  Speaking of that, starting StepMania is a one-step process from the command prompt.  Just type sm40 from anywhere and that X startup script will start X and immediately start da StepMan.  If you don't need the shell at all, however, starting StepMania is a matter of booting the machine, selecting the entry in GRUB, and letting the system boot itself up.

I ended up setting up a window manager in X just for the sake of having something there if I want to do any high-resolution work, since I don't have a console framebuffer in place.  Since the system won't typically have a mouse connected to it, I configured and installed dwm -- an extremely light tabbed window manager that requires nothing more than a keyboard and a display -- to use a single tab and to full-screen everything.  Terminals are set to spawn with Win+Enter, windows are paged through using Alt+J/K, and windows are brought to the main pane with Alt+Enter.  Very simple to use, intuitive, and exactly what I needed.  This desktop gets invoked when you type "startx" at the command prompt.

The next step is to get a menu system in place so that I can switch between multiple StepMania versions (I plan to have OpenITG and 4.0 selectable when the joystick input in OpenITG becomes usable), quit out of X, or halt the system.  It'll all be joystick and keyboard-controlled so that, ultimately, I won't have to even have a keyboard attached to it.  I already wrote a small joystick test program, so all that's left is figuring out the nuances of X11 programming (which may or may not be an exercise in frustration...we'll see).

You should look into cable management, it'll fuck up your airflow, not to mention looks shitty if you have a side window. I would just plug in the hard disk into the motherboard and set it on an ESD bag, while the case is open. Turn it on, transfer files, turn it off, reinstall drive onto old computer. (or even just move them if it's over a network) Now would also be a great time to backup data.

My airflow's fine. I have 5 fans: Intake on the front, intake in the side panel, 2 in the back, and one on the ceiling, as well as the heatsinks for my processor and video card. I almost never feel hot air coming out, and I've opened up and felt the heatsinks and they've never been too hot. Of course, I haven't tried overclocking yet. I do have a side window, though, so maybe I'll try and clean up.

I'd give 4.0 a shot.  It's a hell of a lot better than it was, and at this point I'd say it's probably better than 3.9.  It definitely runs better, overall.

Also, for the record, there are some bugs in dubaiOne.  I discovered a few of them as I started actually using the theme on my setup.  I'll probably try to fix them and just send the patches to AJ.

Turns out I'm going to be spending a lot of time stripping down the stock OS on the Eee PC. I'd install another distro, but that's also a pain with no CD/DVD drive and wi-fi isn't guaranteed.

Eee pc what is das?

One of those $400 ultra-mini laptops.

Basically, they were created as an attempt to create ultra low cost introductory laptops to people who can't otherwise afford things like that.

As far as hardware is concerned, pretty much the only things they can do are A) browse the web (on a tiny as fuck screen), B) Word processing/other office type things, C) play music and D) play oldschool games like Doom, or something that takes basically no hardware requirements (because anything that requires much of a computer will never work on one of those things, and with a screen that small, who would want to play those anyway?)

I'm really not trying to bash them as a concept, but with the way people on s.net are with computers, I could hardly see any of us being the kind of people that need an Eee PC. If anything, it would simply become a toy to fuck with for us.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: annon on August 05, 2008, 08:05:48 AM
All I'm really going to use it for is word processing and browsing the web. I don't need any games on it because I have my tower for that, which can run HL2 with all the settings turned up without lagging. I bought this with the money I had left over from my budget on the tower because I'm going to need a laptop for note taking and whatnot.

For what it's made for, it's great. I like that it's almost completely silent when booted up and booting only takes a few seconds. I also like how small and light it is because it means you can take the thing pretty much anywhere. Tweaking with it is kind of a pain because all LiveCDs I get have to be modified and mounted on either a flash drive or SD card, and I still haven't gotten a gparted LiveCD that works.

EDIT: I got a LiveSD to work, and now it's working with partitions.

I really don't mind too much that I have to do all of this because I'm getting a lot more familiar with Linux and the bash shell.

Yeah, they are pretty good as a learning tool/portable note taking system.

Though I have to say that the biggest problem I have with those things is the insanely small screen. I wouldn't mind having one for college so I can type up my notes and browse the web wirelessly in class, but I don't think I'd be able to adjust to such a small screen. I mean, I've got 2 19 inch wide screen monitors on my computer. Even going back to only 1 screen bugs me, let alone going down to a tiny 9 (IIRC) inch thing.

The Asus Eee is a more capable system than the laptop I had in 2002 and even that system could run UT2004.  Have you even bothered to look at the specs on it?

Really, the only thing holding it back is the size of the SSD, but that's also one of its strengths -- less power and no moving parts.  Also, the 1000-series is going to have 40-80GB of space, making that virtually a non-issue for most uses.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on August 05, 2008, 06:54:08 PM
But would you really WANT to play UT2k4 on a screen that small?

Anyway, I couldn't really keep the specs for those things straight, but the way I see it, it's great for people who can't afford laptops, or people who need a small ultra-portable computer to type things up and such, and that's about it.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on August 05, 2008, 07:40:55 PM
Okay, first off, knock it off with the straw man arguments.  You claimed that the device is underpowered.  I believe I've successfully proved that it isn't with my example.  Don't twist it around to push your arguments about the screen size.

Secondly, the point of an ultra-portable isn't to use as a daily system.  They're designed to be more convenient and portable to lug around than laptops, which the ASUS Eee is.

Third, your argument that tech-savvy people wouldn't be interested in them is far from the truth.  I want to buy one simply because it would be an excellent system to use SSH with.  Also, it would be a lot more convenient than my mammoth laptop (also, I should mention that buying a working battery for my laptop is a third of the cost of an Eee 900) for when vyhd wants to play with OpenITG.  Not to mention that if you wanted to do wi-fi "security tests" on peoples' home networks (in a PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE fashion, of course) it would be considerably easier to use an Eee than a full laptop.  My laptop is just plain inconvenient when I use it in cars, an Eee would be absolutely perfect.

It uses a full installation of Linux so you can pretty much do anything with it.

Well, yes, it is Linux. But the stock OS is a tad limiting unless you go through the hoops to get full writing access (which I did), though it would probably be easier for you since you have more experience with Linux than me. Also, it's really only limiting with its GUI. I can open a terminal and get full root access without a problem.

It has it's uses, but how many of those does annon plan to use it? Essentially, it sounds like he's buying a $400 typewriter.

Sure, I'd rather one of those than a full fledged laptop for going to school. I would use it for the same thing: Browsing the web in class, and typing up my notes, and doing anything else a computer might help in class.

However, I would never use it for anything else because I happen to have a home system more than capable for what I want. I have my own SSH server built on my 1TB NAS hardware, so it's not like I need any extra systems as a server.

Sure, the Eee has it's uses, but for a $400 typewriter, it's still a bit much.

I am indifferent what I have seen for the Eee PC.

I mean it would be nice to have a FUNCTIONAL laptop that doesn't need to pluged into the outlit 24/7 and the fact I could run games like Doom and Quake just fine with out any problems.

Then again $400 could get me a decent upgrade on my dad's old computer.

Like I said indifferent.

Post by: Spectere on August 06, 2008, 03:37:35 AM
It really all depends on whether or not you have a use for an ultra-portable or not.  That's basically what it boils down to.

I really wouldn't mind having it just for its size and convenience (you've seen my laptop, Omni :P), not to mention that it probably wouldn't make any noise whatsoever.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: OmegaOmni on August 06, 2008, 03:49:37 AM
True.

I mean it seems like a cool ultra portible laptop considering mine (and how much it is a pain Spec) that I could use it for school and what not.  Considering (if I read correctly) that it has a Linux distro and me still being fairly new to linux I wouln't mind it. 

Then again I woulnd't mind using Vista if I had the time and the machine to run it.  Considering a co-worker who told me about the whole Mohavie thing Microsoft did...very sneaky of them.

Yeah, I had to laugh when I read about that.  Sadly, most of the problem that Vista has is user acceptance.  It's amazing how much people whine about things that they've never used.

That's kind of a nice use of UnionFS, but damn.

On one hand, it's kind of nice that you can easily roll back bad changes.  Pretty much the best recovery mode you could ask for in an OS.  On the other hand, it doesn't lend itself well to tinkerers.

Given the target audience of the Eee, I think ASUS made the right choice in this case.  But still...damn.

I've played it. I never got past about lv 30 or something, but back then, the majority of players were around lv 30 anyway. Last time I played (I first played it in open Beta) there was a hacker who had GM access and was fucking up the economy and doing stuff like giving people triple expreience for an hour every now and then, and doing things like spawning hordes of high level mobs in the town and such.

It was fun, but I found that like most MMO's, it lacks the large selection of equipment that I like in diablo 2. (I still haven't find an MMO that can match D2 for that though).

For the most part, the community was alright. There were lots of scammers, and people using rudimentary bots, but it wasn't completely wrecked because of them.

diablo 2 =/= mmo

diablo 2 = rpg with the ability to play online

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on August 08, 2008, 12:57:17 AM
I never said D2 was an MMO, however, since MMO(RPG)s are mostly fairly similar to diablo 2 in many ways, and simply build upon the online aspect, rather than the linear story aspect, I still compare the 2.

The reason I love Diablo 2 so much boils down to gameplay. The gameplay is HEAVILY effected by items in Diablo 2. However, the gameplay in most MMORPGs is not nearly as heavily based on items. In fact, most of them are simply "oh, you've reached level X, now you can use item Y, which is the best item for that level." Very few of them have magic effects like D2 does, and even fewer have a halfway decent magic effect system. Diablo 2 blows pretty much every single MMORPG away when it comes to the item system. Considering the skills in those games are for the most part fairly linear, don't have any synergy system, and pretty much top out with 1 ultimate skill, most of the gameplay systems in MMORPGs are kinda lacking. There's usually only about 1 build that's even worth making in most MMORPGs and there's rarely any item system that would make much of a difference to your character because the developemt team decided that skill based gameplay was a better way to go.

In short, I'm sick and tired of shitty MMORPGs, and Diablo 2 surpasses pretty much every one of them in nearly every aspect of gameplay, other than the MMO part itself.

agreed.  BUT if you get used to it, you can get through the game with little difficulty on keyboard.  i know, i beat the game using a keyboard(AND YES I HAVE PLAYED IT ON A REAL SNES, i just didn't get around to beating it on the snes).  the only hard parts is adjusting to the L and R keys, and mapping them to a place relatively easy to use.  but if you have access to a gamepad, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD USE IT, but its not "mandatory" to say, i didn't mind it after the initial "getting used too" part.

anyway, if you like side scrolling games at all, its a sin not to play super metroid.

It's not bad with some games.  Super Mario World isn't any harder to play with a keyboard than with a gamepad (I've beaten it with both).

The only games that really don't work well with keyboards are games that require constant use of all six buttons during normal play.  If you're using ZSNES's default key bindings (Z, X, A, S, Q, W) that tends to get really nasty really quick-like.

the buttons just feel better on the damn thing compared to the ds, and the ds has a d-pad I WOULD CONSIDER EVEN WORSE THAN THE 360's D-PAD JESUS. but yeah, one thing i need to get in the future, new battery for the sp.

im saying this because im planning on (well its been like this for a while, im just lazy) beating the original NES metroid on my copy of zero mission.

also, the fuck nintendo, why didn't you release a purple ds, it would be a nice compliment to the purple gbc, and the cobalt (close enough to purple) sp.  now that im at it, all portable game systems should be matte rather than shiny, those look better longer, rather than looking awesome, till you touch it and the smudges from your fingers make it look dirty.  and id get in on the "quit re making game systems better and selling them off, you are screwing over the early adopters which made the damn thing successful in the first place" but thats a new argument which i covered some months back.

my gba sp's battery, is dead.  it will no longer hold a charge, i need a new one.  thats ok, i mean, i had the thing since the sp's came out, these things die with time.

my nintendo ds, i got late march 2007.  from the looks of it, its not holding charges too long.  i mean, the battery went red on me, i haven't played it in a while, but i don't recall playing it for longer than maby an hour, but since i haven't played it in a while i may have had it on longer than i would have assumed.  BUT, having just charged the fucking thing to full, and plugging the thing back in "taking plug out, and re plugging it in) and the "charge" light stays on for like 10 minutes, this seems to me like its losing good chunks of battery right after the charge completes.  if i find out that when i use the thing tomorrow, and it goes red after 20-30 minutes or something, UNACCEPTABLE.  i don't use my ds a lot, it hasn't got too much use, and ive only had it for a year.  if i find out tomorrow that the battery is basically dead, im going to pissed off. 

i really would like not to spend $15.00 on a new battery for a thing that i just fucking got.

Also I've noticed something (noticed it a while ago, but something recently sparked interest). Whenever you see something about Virgina tech shown in a comical light most people go "not funny man, you're fucked up". Yet if you showed the same person a joke about 9/11 they'd probably laugh about it. I've never understood this double standard, and I have a friend who acts EXACTLY like that.

So I've heard that the hotter your wireless connecting (in my case, USB) is, the better it resonates. So does that mean I can put a sock on my wireless USB connection and it will make my connection better, or is this just a dumb idea.

Post by: Bobbias on August 10, 2008, 06:45:04 PM
No, that won't do a damned thing.

Wireless communication is based on sending a signal through the air using the same technology as radio does. It uses an electromagnetic wave to send the data much the same way radio, cell phones, and many other things work. Heating up the receiver will do nothing to enhance reception because heat, though it causes the molecules of something to vibrate faster, won't make the receiver work any better. If the receiver gets hot enough, it may even work worse. (Though it would likely have to be quite a bit hotter than a sock could ever make it).

ok so i got every item in brinstar, and norfair(save for the wavebeam, which would help on ridley, but im lazy to get it, and it wont help much on kraid), and im working on ridleys lair.

i remember why i quit the first time so many months ago, so i mean, i go around in ridleys lair, die, and then turn the game off.  i come back to the game later, y'know you only start with 30 health, and that means i have 3 empty energy tanks.  "farming" health in this game takes YEARS, like jesus, it will take a good minute or two just to get 20, maby 30 health, and i need what, 400?  the fuck.  and good luck trying to get through the bottom path with only 30 health, yeah, i died like what, 6 times already? 

i guess next time i pick it up (hopefully soon, i would rather beat this game eventually) i will sit there, FARMING HEALTH for an hour or so until i am full, collect the two energy tanks, and two missiles ive yet to get, attempt to kill ridley, if i kill him, move on to kraids lair. 

but they did a good job on super metroid by upping the health pickups, i mean, i have max missiles (75) and those things still drop more than health does.  not to mention when i do get health, its a shitty 5 health drop.

ill give it another go when i cool down a bit.

Post by: vladgd on August 11, 2008, 02:17:15 AM
i went into ridley with 83 health expecting to die, i killed him with 59 health left.

i guess i was being retarded when i last fought him, he literally takes ZERO skill to beat.

*edit*

k so i have 6 energy tanks, all the missiles in norfair, brinstar, and im missing one in ridleys lair only because it requires some mad bomjump skills to do, so considering im at like 125 (possibly more, i need to pick up more missiles) missiles, im good.

but uhh i wanted to do ridleys lair first, because i remember ridley being a bitch, and the zone is full of long gay corridors, not to mention it takes a bit of time to get too.  kraids lair is close, and you can get from kraids, to brinstar, to tourain, rather than ridleys, norfair, brinstar, tourain.  anyway...

OFF TO KRAIDS LAIR!

*edit*

killed kraid, (the rest of this post was cut and put in the rage thread, as it is on topic there)

Kraid's Lair also has an energy tank RIGHT ABOVE IT in Brinstar.  I always save grabbing it until right before I storm fuckin' Tourian.  So yeah, you do the long part in Ridley's Lair, grab the tank behind Ridley's room, go back and beat Kraid (who's like 1000x harder than Ridley), grab the tank in his room, die in Brinstar, save the code, and when you start up, grab that tank two rooms to the right of where you start before you go to Tourian.  Lolz.

Also, the wave beam is gay, don't bother with it.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: vladgd on August 11, 2008, 04:10:14 PM
well i mean, my code is in tourain, with 30 health, half my missiles, every energy tank gotten (i went to fight mother brain with near full health) and only missing two missile pickups.  uhh, varia, high jump, ice beam, spin attack, basically everything but wave beam and two missile pickups.

what i should have did was save the energy tank in brinstar, that would make life easier. 

and fuck, i may just do that later.

also with full health, kraid is easy.  morph ball, and bomb his ass, you should lose about 3 or so energy tanks, but he will die.

*edit*

ok this is POSSIBLE, but for fuck sake, screw attack is shit.  sure its awesome for the entire game, except the final room.

how am i supposed to freeze these fire ball things when i have a small platform to stand on, lava, a higher platform with 3 turrets shooting at me, and jumping basically kills the orbs making them respawn?

like seriously, my file isn't as bad as i had assumed.  kill all the metroids on the way to the final room, and i have usually at least 4 full energy tanks, because when they drop health, its always 30 health.  roughly 150 missiles is PLENTY for what i need, since i already blew up the laser door things, i just need to run to mother brain, and shoot her.  problem is killing her, its those orb things that i can't freeze because i accidentally kill them with screw attack.

CURRENT GENERATION HARDWARE SUCKS

You're probably not taking proper care of the batteries.  I'm not saying that to be a dick...it's just not obvious how you're supposed to take care of them.

First off, a lot of people will tell you that discharging them completely and recharging them is a good thing.  Far from it, doing this regularly is about the worst thing you can do to a li-ion battery.  I learned this by destroying my expensive laptop battery after only a year and a half of ownership (in contrast, my mom's laptop is almost two years old and it'll still keep my system powered for four hours despite it only being the cheaper 6-cell battery, since she leaves it plugged in almost all the time).  Don't let the battery get too low and it'll last a lot longer.

Never, under any circumstance, leave anything with a lithium-ion battery just sit there.  If you have something that you know isn't going to be plugged into a charger for a while, take the battery out to slow the battery drain (it'll likely lose charge by itself anyway but if it's in a device it'll drain a lot faster, even if it's off) and try to plug it in to keep the charge ASAP.  My camcorder battery only holds a charge for 15 minutes (more if I only record to a Memory Stick, thankfully) because I didn't do this.

The stage after that is retarded. So was The Bog. And the Broadcast Room. And every other place where guys spawn infinitely until you reach a certain location.

Indeed.

It sucks because CoD4 in single-player is so much fun when you first start playing...before they start pulling that crap.

That's why I only play it online nowadays (speaking of which, anyone else own the PC version?).

Post by: vladgd on August 12, 2008, 04:16:40 AM
actually, when it went red the other day, that was the first time it went red on me.  i tend to top off the charge on any electronic device i own.  like even if i play it for 5 minutes, when im done, ill charge that motherfucker back up.

i don't however take out the battery.  and by not playing the darn thing for several months, that's probably the reason it went red.  seems to be doing ok right now, i was just flipping out at the time. 

and to be honest, i thought that keeping my battery topped off was hurting it, so i guess im glad you clarified that.

Leaving devices plugged in until you're ready to use it seems like a pretty sound idea as well (my mom's laptop is proof of that).

i just figure when the light is off, it is no longer charging, and thus i would have to unplug, and replug again to get electricity flowing.

unless i am wrong.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on August 12, 2008, 04:43:23 AM
Electricity is always going into the device when it's plugged in.  On some devices (in particular, some cell phones) the charge light will occasionally go on and off when the battery is full.  As for the DS, I believe it kicks the light off when the battery is fully charged and keeps it off until you unplug it and plug it back in.

In all cases, battery-powered devices will maintain the full charge when it's plugged in, regardless of whether it keeps the charge light on or not.  The main reason the light goes out on the DS (and most other devices) is to let you know that it has a full charge and is ready to rock and roll.  Even though the light is off it's still maintaining that full level.

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on August 12, 2008, 05:06:49 AM
Not a problem, good sir.

Anyway, to make this post a bit less useless, I do have some small thing to rant about.

My phone is a weird motherfucker.  There's this annoying bug in the firmware that causes it to display the size of the microSD card incorrectly when I use a 2GB card (which I am right now) as 1GB.  It's a completely artificial limitation, since the phone itself can address the extra space and even reports the proper amount of free space (though its calculation of used space is off by a lot, since it seems to subtract the free space from the total space for some reason...integer wraparound causes it to report 3,428,224 KB of space used which, of course, is impossible).

The most bizarre part about this is the way other operating systems react to this oddness.  XP reads it just fine but NOTHING ELSE seems to like it at all.  Linux correctly reports that it's trying to read past the end of the device and Vista correctly picks the partition up as being incomplete, but XP just does its thing and reads it which is, no doubt, the wrong way to do it (it seems like it's probably relaxing the USB Mass Storage standards a bit to allow this sort of thing).  Not sure about OS X, but I'd imagine it would be in the same boat as Linux and Vista.

RACIST SPICS.

Oh, the irony. I lol'd.

Quote
Whether the picture was made in good fun is irrelevant. It was a ridiculous idea that was bound to upset a lot of people.

Best two sentences in the article. (except, if it was made in good fun, they probably weren't trying be racist at all, and therefore makes the controversy and article lose steam)

Quote
Did it not occur to somebody that it might not be a good idea to mock an entire continent before the world's largest athletic competition that, by the way, happens to take place on that continent. Were they not aware of an invention called "the Internet" that allows pictures taken in Spain to be transmitted all over the world for the eyes of everyone?

Worst two sentences in the article.

Why the fuck can't people just write a decent article without trying to look like a journalistic superstar? God damn.

Leave it to a sports writer to write about racism... Pshaw. Is this supposed to be entertaining, or informative???

I also love how the author, Chris Chase, decided to inform us that:

1) Everyone present during the photograph was somehow unaware of a possible prejudice.
2) An entire continent was mocked.
3) It happened just before the world's largest athletic competition.
4) That event "happens to take place on that continent" (You need the italics, it adds a dramatic effect, and truly captivates the idiocy of the team.)
5) There's an invention called "the internet."
6) "The internet" allows pictures taken in Spain to be transmitted all over the world.
7) Everyone can see those pictures over "the internet."

This is great, just in case you happened to be a complete moron and lacked the comprehension to understand the entire reason the article was posted. Not only this, but it also appears Chris Chase prides himself in his wonderfully cunning wit and needs to prove it by showing you step-by-step how you can laugh at his derisive jokes.

Apparently being a Yahoo! sports writer is far more successful than being an Olympian.


Edit: I just realized that "Did it not occur to somebody that it might not be a good idea to mock an entire continent before the world's largest athletic competition that, by the way, happens to take place on that continent." Is actually a question, not a statement. Let's not get too caught up in our writing, or we'll ruin our punctuation. (Perhaps a better editing team could help, too.) Then again, why am I nitpicking a single character?

played a level 29 encounter in 4th edition.  and well, they need to work on epic level encounters.  divine regeneration is retarded, and broken.

we killed this guy

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythnul

he took us FOUR HOURS to defeat, but he went down.  he was kind of a bitch, stupid amounts of hp, he could aoe stun until the end of his next round, teleport, and all that fun stuff.  ohh, and by standing next to him, you take 10 poison damage a round.

as the orc fighter, i was getting the beat on, and after all the healing was gone, i popped divine regeneration.  28hp a round....for the encounter....yeah, i didn't have any problems after i popped that.

anyway, killing a god is pretty epic.

so a while back a friend of mine was talking about this site called goozex.  and hes telling me about getting "free" games and shit, and it basically sounded like a scam. 

he ended up referring me, meaning he would get 100 points or whatever AFTER i recieved my first game, which i would get from the 100 points i get just for joining.  so i decided to play ball, its not like it would hurt me if it didn't work.

i tried getting fear effect, but im assuming that game is quite popular, so no luck with that.  i changed my request to tenchu(the first game for ps1), and a day later, it was shipped.  its roughly a week later and, i have tenchu, used, but in working condition.  and i didn't pay a dime, no shipping, no nothing.

yeah, so if anyone wants in on this, ill send you a referral email.  all you really need to do at signup is basic stuff like "name, address, password, email" pretty simple.

its also a good place to get rid of games you don't want, and you get points based on the point value of the game on the site.  the only "catch" is you pay for the shipping.  that's how the site runs, its a point based game trading site.  ran by the users so to say.

the game itself works fine, and is quite fun.  the controls are a tad on the "primitive" side, but its a ps1 game from 1998, and no analog aside, the controls work, and uhh yeah, NINJA FIGHTAN SNEAKAN ASSASSANATAN action. 

one of the people on my watch list on the FA brought it up, and from referrals alone she got 17 games....yeah...so if anyone would be so kind, y'all can get a free 100 point game, and i get points, win win, unless you can't find a 100 point game you want. 

i typically look at the ps1 selection, because there's a decent amount of 100 pointers that i want, and its not like you can just go to the store and buy a ps1 game now a days.

now i kind of sound like im advertising for the site, but fuck, i just think its the coolest thing ever that i got this game, and i didn't pay for it.

So I found out why our old router died...'twas because of a bad capacitor.  It's simply amazing how many of those are still out in the wild.

We're going to try to fix it.  If the only thing preventing it from booting is that capacitor we should have it working (as a switch and possibly a wireless access point, since our shiny new WRT56G is doing a mighty fine job with the routing responsibilities).

I've never understood why people get so offended about swearing. When I swear, I usually mean it to intensify the feeling that I am giving off in my sentence. If I say "that sucks", it doesn't suck as much as if I were to say "that fucking sucks ass". Unless I'm saying something like "you're a fucking douchebag" to someone, I'm not intending to offend them, and I'm sorry, but if you take that as offense when I'm saying something and I happen to swear, then you should re-evaluate why you are getting offended, and whether it's really worth it or not, because I'm not NEARLY as bad as many other people.

Swearing off cussing doesn't make you look like a gigantic tool.  Honestly, I think arguments that don't have profanity peppered in them senselessly hold a lot more weight than your average 14-year-old Counter-Strike/Halo player's rants (assuming they're even grammatically correct).

What I think makes people like that tools are the fact that they're so damn vocal about it.  It's kinda like religious zealotry in a sense -- if it works for you, awesome, just don't preach to me just because I don't feel the same way you do.

Even with the indicator the 3 grenade perk is still ridiculous.  At least you can't equip the n00b tube (I love that name) with that perk enabled, though.

also, you can always play the demo and try it out.  however, you get half a level, and two of the challenge rooms.  not much, but enough to get your feet wet.

anyway im going through withdrawal,  i want to play the game, but i can't because i lack the piddly amount of money it costs to buy.

when i said that, i was kind of just meaning "i just want something that i can jump into and have fun with" its kind of a "regardless of genre, unless i don't like said genre" kind of thing.

contra shattered soldier for the ps2.  loud metal/electronic music, LOUDER gunfire, explosions, story is to "KILL EVERYTHING" this is my kind of game.

also, i heard good things from mystery dungeon.  but the person i heard that from has a flash cart, so its not like he buys ds games anyway.  i think the only ds game im interested in coming out later on is puzzle quest galactrix.  the first puzzle quest, minus the generic fantasy setting for a generic sci fi setting with space ships?  count me in.

and i did try the original nes bionic commando.  the controls...are nearly the exact same as in the remake, which is good, since they are solid.  problems are since i suck at vidya(well no, but yes...i mean im better than a lot of people, but im more of an average level), no health bar (well yes and no..the way they handle it is weird), limited continues (unlimited in rearmed), and the item system is quite bad (STREAMLINED in rearmed).  but if i give it a little time, i can see myself enjoying it.

They took out thirst, it only happens from enemy attacks now. Also weapons take a while to brake, and you can save every dungeon level. Also yes that game is very damn long, I've put 125ish hours on it and I've yet to do the hidden dungeon. Also yes, shitty story is shitty. I still really liked it, not sure why. The combat was just charge, shoot, standard combo, or block, but considering some enemies will kill you within 4 hits it was still somehow pretty damn fun. Plus the amount of customization you can do with your weapons and towns (kind of, there is a specific way to build a town) is rather big.

but uhh, i just killed the clown robot boss, trying to take a picture of a missile he shoots, as he shoots it, the small chance he does decide to shoot it, inclined me to make this post about how lame that is. 

but uhh, im starting to get into it, i just wanted to get the first lame dungeon out of the way before the first "good" forest dungeon starts up.

You can save your fish, force them to fight to the death, or even breed them then. Then near the end of the game there are fish races (which get FUCKING HARD) and you can race them for very valuable stuff. Also there is a glitch involving a lure rod and making a infinite number of lures so you can have as much cash as you need. I miss this game now...

I'm within the top 20 times for challenges almost always and I have a #1 score and a #5 score.

"dumb fun" is what i pretty much call anything i can pop in, play, and enjoy without too much thought(example, contra, you run around, and shoot things).  and, yeah, there are parts in the game which made me think (figuring out bosses for example, or even certain parts of a level) but for the most part, shootan, grapplan, and the fundamental thing which makes a good game, fun.

not to mention, infinite continues makes getting killed not such a big deal.   but i mean, if anyone somehow didn't like the original (or like me, didn't play the original until recently) this game, while very similar, improves apon the original quite a bit.

but uhh to mortified, its one of my pet peeves in games is mainly in rpg's(FINAL FANTASY GAMES ARE A MAJOR OFFENDER), but "stuff you can miss, and never get again".  i mean, im sorry i don't want to use a faq for the specific purpose of not missing something i can't get later in the game.  because of this, im just not going to get said item in the first place.  checking a faq every 5 minutes =/= fun.  i mean, i am a heavy faq user, but dark cloud 2 isn't one of those games you really need a faq for.  anyway, so far, i am enjoying it (again), lets see how many dungeons i can last and keep the experience fresh.

lol wut? I never said it was a "if you miss it you can never get it again" type thing. I just think you can get all of the supplies/pictures for it in he first town, and it's awesome, so you should get it ASAP. Also try and take pictures of everything you can think of.

There are no entirely missable items in FF12. Even the Zodiac Spear, but it's entirely ridiculous to try to do it the other way. And really, the Zodiac Spear isn't that great. It has the highest attack but it's not very fast and doesn't combo well. The Masamune does a MUCH better job, considering it regularly hits 5 times per round of attacks.

In FF12 International (which of course only Japan got), they made it so you had to actually pick classes for each of your guys and they each got a unique license board that was for that job. And they rebalanced drops and what enemies dropped. And then added a TON of new stuff, like a bow with something like 220 attack and a 2H Sword that was almost as good. And a second version of the Masamune that was one handed and had an even HIGHER combo rate. AND they made it so if you held L1, the game would go in double speed. And you had full control over summons and guest characters. Why the hell did we not get that that would've made the game unbelievably amazing. Oh, it also had a trial battle mode with the last battle being against all 5 judges at once. Which is ridiculous.

I really loved FF12. The writing was an absolute new level for RPGs. It made nearly everything else that year look so...pedestrian. The story itself is actually pretty good too if you just bumrush the game so you don't have 14 hours between story segments. Although parts near the end aren't explained well enough and the ending is fairly abrupt. I want to say that's probably because the main writer for the game had to be taken off the project when he got sick.


Also, hahaha people are so terrible at Bionic Commando. Help with Challenge #10? If you can't even get through that, what hope do you have of even beating the game ever? People can't even find the green comm chip! It's in one of the first main camps! You just walk into a door and it's just sitting there.

so I bet you were angry when you found out that you missed the hidden uber javelin and shield in Final Fantasy Tactics

or when you didn't get Leviathan in Final Fantasy IV

or when you didn't get half of the espers or characters at the end of Final Fantasy VI

or thousands of other examples in the Final Fantasy series I could think of that actually have little relevance to the completion of the game!

it's really a silly thing to get annoyed about.  So somebody looked in some places harder?  Square's just giving them a small bonus for being that dedicated.  None of the shit's actually necessary to complete the game (you can beat FFVI with three characters, you DON'T need Leviathan or Ashura, and superweapons are NOT important in FFT).  You're complaining because some people did a better job at playing the game than you, and therefore got better items/characters/summons/whatever for doing such.

Why?  The people who design the game are the ones who practically coerce people into looking up walkthroughs so that they don't miss some of the stuff that's been mercilessly hidden for no reason whatsoever.

It doesn't matter if they're needed to complete the game or not.  Designing secrets (especially one-shot ones) in ways that are so obscure that it prevents anyone from getting them without the aid of a strategy guide is just *drumroll, please* bad design.  Secrets should be obscure, yes, maybe out of the way, but not virtually impossible to discover.  Final Fantasy VII and VIII probably had the best methods for hiding powerful items out of all the newer Final Fantasy titles.  They were sometimes hard to get to, but you certainly didn't need a strategy guide to find them.

Acquiring Siren in FF8 is probably the best example I can think of.  It's not something that jumps out at you (hence the reason a lot of people miss it) but it's not something that's so obscure that you should need to look it up at any point in time.

Yeah, games hiding a one off item that's pretty much the best in the game and requires you to have looked it up on an FAQ and then ground your way up like, 10 levels in an area not designed to be grindable, is just fucking gay.

Well lets take a look at Chrono Trigger as an example.

I mean after you get Robo you could fight Lavos and get one of the 12 endings for it.   Not to mention you have to be near the end of the game to get some of the most powerful weapons in the game.

Not to mention if you didn't have a stratagy guid or a FAQ you could totatly miss Magus who is rather powerful (pretty much close to Chrono) but not really needed.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on August 17, 2008, 07:13:56 PM
Magus isn't that hard to get really. I forget exactly what you need to do, but it wasn't that difficult to figure out. Plus, the game was made to have more replayability than most other RPGs are designed with.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Alice on August 17, 2008, 07:18:38 PM
but not really needed.
that's my whole point about this entire topic

everything that's missable I've listed is entirely unrequired to beat the games that they're in

Who care's if it's the best weapon and it does over 9000 damage, do you *really* need it?  For example, you don't need the Moogle Charm or the Ragnarok sword to beat Final Fantasy VI; an item that lets you evade all random encounters, and the second-best sword in the game.  Missable?  Definitely.  Obscurely placed?  Not particularly.  If anything, the Moogle Charm makes it more tedious to beat the game if you use it too much, and there are fucktons of other decent swords everywhere.

An offender from that exact game that comes to mind, though, is the Paladin Shield.  It's only minorly hinted at how to break the curse, if I remember, and you're never told that it teaches the spell Ultima once the curse is broken, so you may end up accidentally grabbing the Ragnarok esper instead of the sword if somebody misinforms you.  Seeing as all of this shit is entirely optional, though, it doesn't matter that much.

vladgd: sorry i jumped all over you, dog :(  <3 friends?

Well, I'm pretty sure that you have to chose 1 of the 2 options to continue. Which makes it a lot less "obscure" and more chancy, and hell, if you know you can get him in your party, and you fight him there, and he's dead, then next time you play through, you're probably going to not fighting him.

I saw a near complete one for sale in a store nearby but fuck $60?  I think it's cheap for Chrono Trigger, but still, I'm not paying that much for a game that's over 10 years old

I looked at good used copies of FF7 (online of course) some were going for $60-$100.  A never opened one was $400!

The reason FF7 is like that now is because no free copies exist. That is to say, the entire original release was sold. And no one really thinks to get rid of it. I'd say the Greatest Hits version is very nearly like that too. I've been tempted to sell it off a few times.

I got mine second hand for $34, back when it was going for about $80. Unfortunately, the third disk was unplayable (hence why the people pawned it in the first case). I should really burn a backup and play through it again.

Pssh, don't try to tell that to Vista haters!  There's no way they'll believe you.

Really, Vista running FF7 is particularly impressive because FF7 is quite possibly most sloppily coded piece of ported garbage in existence.  Do be sure to download and apply the Chocobo patch (http://www.qhimm.com/#ff7), because otherwise the game will always crash on the Chocobo races.

Also, if you're running the 32-bit edition, download and play Executive Suite (http://www.the-underdogs.info/game.php?id=384).  It's a fun game, runs fine on Vista, and is older than almost everyone here.  The 64-bit version of Vista lacks any sort of 16-bit support, so it won't run on that unfortunately.

As good as any other Windows OS is.  If I had any serious issues with things like that I wouldn't be using it as my primary OS.

Vista's "poor" backwards compatibility is little more than a widely-spread exaggeration.  Most of the issues that people have are from applications that aren't aware of UAC (which is essentially Vista's equivalent of "sudo") trying to write in areas that unprivileged users don't have access to.

Also, newsflash: my Crysis review is finally live (http://www.spectere.net/blog/2008/08/game-review-crysis/).
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance

Huh...sounds like Vista is somewhat simpler and more complicated at the same time.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Spectere on August 19, 2008, 01:38:44 PM
It's hardly more complicated.  UAC is a one-click affair rather than requiring a password like OS X and sudo (though it can be configured to require passwords, or it can be set to be active but configured to automatically bypass the prompts).

As far as it being complicated for application developers, it really isn't.  Any well-designed program from around 1995 and newer should work with it.

Windows NT came out in 1993 and supported privilege separation (meaning that programs written for it should assume that, like with Unix, that users only have full write access to their home directories) but the Win32 API that it introduced only really kicked off when Windows 95 was released.  Shell folders and the registry were supported as far back as that to ensure proper interoperability with Windows NT systems and user profiles, meaning that there's absolutely no excuse for programs to write data files into their own directory (which is the main thing that causes problems with UAC).  Microsoft's been stating that in their guidelines from the very beginning and, if developers actually bothered to read through them, there wouldn't be any compatibility "issues" with Vista.  The only reason that there are problems is because of third parties.

So I've been playing Duke Nukem 3D again and I must say, it's awesome. I'm rather surprised by the amount of things you have to do just to beat a level. Also the difficulty seems just right, other then those dumb lazer mines everything is perfect. I'm just annoyed at how the strafing works, if it were more like a modern shooter it would really help.


Also yes, I pretty much agree with the Crysis review, other then the difficulty curb. That game pretty much gives you useless powers and forces you to shoot with the same 2 or 3 different guns through most of the game. I must say, probably one of the better vehicle uses in a game, even compared to halo. I also remember seeing something about being able to shoot the rocket pods on a helicopter to make it blow up, or shooting the gas tanks on a tank to make it stop, but I never got either to work (shooting a gas tank on a tank will make it blow up, but he tank will still move and shoot at you). Hell, even GTA SA let you sniper helicopters in the prop to make them crash, and that game had some of the worst fighting and gun play I've seen.

In all honest it might have been because I was getting mindnumbingly bored with the game, but it seriously felt like the enemies were scoring far more "lucky hits" than they did at the beginning of the game.  It seemed like they were sending out larger forces, too, which was definitely a Bad Thing(TM) considering how many bloody bullets it takes to stop them.

I must say, probably one of the better vehicle uses in a game, even compared to halo.

Argh, I forgot to touch on that...

My favorite thing to do with the vehicles in Crysis is take control of the mounted machineguns and cut down trees. 8)

The game is a bit primitive, obviously.  It's all text-based with simple ASCII graphics, but it should amuse you for a while.  There's quite a bit you can do in it.

Post by: MortifiedocAlot on August 21, 2008, 02:16:55 AM
Well, me and my friends got into an hour long fucking debate over the nature of random and how it works in a game of Mario and the secrete levels. Here is how it all started, there was this part with 5 or 4 elevators (platforms evenly paced vertically that keep dropping at the same speed) and one friend said if you went when the second one dropped, you would always have the right timing to make it across. I said it all depends on when the elevators came onto the screen, because they would not be moving while off the screen and were only at a set point. So I said it was completely random, because you would move whenever it came on screen, witch would always be different because of human nature (that it's impossible for you to move the exact same speed twice threw a level twice). He said it always followed a pattern, because it would be impossible for you to beat the level unless it did. So I said that it would have to be the EXACT same way every time for it to follow a pattern and not be random. He said there could be slight changes in the pattern, as long as it was close enough it was still a pattern (which made me face-palm, because I don't think that's how patterns work). So we basically argued for an hour about the nature of random, and he said it couldn't repeat the same thing twice and still be random, so I said something about no computer ever being able to do true random (even tho true random could repeat the same thing twice and still be random).

So that's the short story, AM I CRAZY OR ARE ALL MY FRIENDS GAY NIGGERS?

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, With A Vengeance
Post by: Bobbias on August 21, 2008, 02:44:14 AM
Except in a few cases, all computers use pseudorandom number generators:
Quote from: wikipedia
A pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) is an algorithm for generating a sequence of numbers that approximates the properties of random numbers. The sequence is not truly random in that it is completely determined by a relatively small set of initial values, called the PRNG's state. Although sequences that are closer to truly random can be generated using hardware random number generators, pseudo-random numbers are important in practice for simulations (e.g., of physical systems with the Monte Carlo method), and are central in the practice of cryptography.

Now, I am not certain, but I am pretty sure that those platforms would in fact be offscreen and not moving (it's one less thing to have to compute, and saving CPU cycles was always good on a NES/SNES) until they came on screen. Now, just because we are human and can't repeat everything exactly, that doesn't mean we can't get damned close. Plus, only the time after the platforms have come on screen matters anyway, for this situation. Scaling that time zone that matters down to the 2 seconds or so that it takes from the time you begin to see the platforms to the time you jump off (assuming you simply run through the screen, may take longer for those who don't know the level well) makes it rather simple to be very close to exactly replicating your moves. Plus, you don't need to jump at the exact same time every time, you simply need to be close enough to land properly.

In short, you're almost definitely right.

And patterns are defined as being a series of things who's order is predictable.

Plus, you don't need to jump at the exact same time every time, you simply need to be close enough to land properly.

That's the problem. They somehow thought waiting for the second platform to drop would set the rhythm for every platform in the set, and all of them were off the screen except for one. Also they wouldn't run threw it in one fluid motion, at some point they always ran back to get speed for the next jump or else they wouldn't make it. That, and even when they did that at a similar pace it would have some drastically different pattern. Even when I pointed that out they disregarded that, so I suppose someone had a bit to much to drink. That, and after I proved my point they shifted their whole argument to "IT'S NOT FUCKING RANDOM, YOU WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO BEAT IT IF IT WAS RANDOM". So, if it isn't 100% random it has to be following some obvious pattern, at least that's what they think.

Funny, the more I think about this the more they seem wrong.

Hahah, nice.  I had two Monsters while trying to stay up 24 hours, and ended up falling asleep 4 hours before I was done, almost an hour after I finished the second one.

Nonono, not Java Monster.  Java Monster tastes good.

We're talking a standard Monster (I believe it was either M-80 or Khaos) mixed with cheap, hotel coffee.

as much as i haven't been looking forward to this game, and im not so fond of its "humor", i played the trial(twice) and well, im going to get it when i have the cash money, after bionic commando.

castle crashers.  1-4 player beat 'em up with a hint of rpg like leveling up, its fucking fun man.  i can see myself playing this with 3 others and having a good time. 

i don't need fancy cutscenes, or a deep story to enjoy the vidya.  i just need fun gameplay, and preferably co-op multiplayer, and im golden.

and since these kind of games are becoming more popular with the "CHEAP AND DOWNLOADABLE" scene, im rather happy to see the 2d multiplayer games aren't going to die.    i know i'm going to support them, with my money, by buying them.

OHH AND IT HAS LOCAL AND ONLINE

i mean, i prefer local, but the fact that online is there can make all the internet kiddies stop crying.  i mean, half the fun of a co-op game, is being in the same room with the other players, BUT THATS JUST ME, i prefer actual human interaction over e-interaction.
