    • Cable Modem+Router=online gaming issues?

      in Forums > Cable Modem+Router=online gaming issues? | Follow this topic

      Lein

      I currently have a 5mb cable internet connection, which is setup through a modem which is then connected to a router, then through the router, to a game console. My question is, would this setup be the source of any significant lag problems or other online gaming complications?

    • Killzone 2.

      I hate to sound like a fanboy, but its mildly unavoidable so look away if you must.

      Killzone 2 is quite possibly one of the best games I have ever played. Nothing on the PS3 with the exception of Metal Gear Solid 4 is on par with Killzone. The campaign is one of the most visceral experiences in the genre, and manages to work in set pieces of an epic scale, not to mention the story, while not on par Mass Effect's epic storyline, is solid and manages to drive you through the story. The multi-player is quite an experience as well, featuring plenty of rewards and playability. And to top it all off, its got the best looking visuals I've seen on a console to date.

      The only real problems I've had are the slightly finicky controls (which you will get used to), some slight online class/weapon balancing, and some mild lag issue's.

      All of these things aside, Killzone 2 is a definite must play, and reason enough alone to buy a PS3. Go play.

      I've been playing hardcore team deathmatch in COD 4, and I have dual feelings about it. I like the more tactical play, but on the other hand a lot of people just camp. Oh well, talk about old news, haha.

    • Writing Paralells.

      in Forums > Writing Paralells. | Follow this topic

      Lein

      Browsing EditRed, I came across a Sci-Fi story that mildly peaked my interest, so I read it. The story was fairly generic for Sci-fi but wasn't anything horrible on the writing scale. Regardless, when looking at the listed comments there were two or three stating 'You are totally making parallells in this story to the modern day American invasion of Iraq" or Afghanistan or whatever current day event, blah blah blah, the list went on. I then considered how many similar comments I had heard or read about other works of fiction, this list grew fairly large.

      Anyways, this trend bothers the hell out of me. Is it just the way of the world to tie every work of fiction to a current event somewhere? And while I acknowledge writers do include parallels in their stories on purpose, a fair few number of writers (including myself) do not purposely do these things. A lot of 'would be' parallels are simply something the writer came up with and thought was cool thus they implemented the idea into their story.

      As writers, does this bother any of you?

      While I understand this is a survival guide group. World War Z is so amazing (and by the same author) it deserves a topic. The novel is just plain glorious, as has been said, it is The Hot Zone meets The Stand. A definite must read if you enjoyed the Zombie Survival guide. It has a unique writing style I'm not sure everyone will enjoy though.

    • Digital Cable...

      in Forums > Digital Cable... | Follow this topic

      Lein

      Oddly enough I have this sort of luck with technology a lot... I have the fortune of living in the middle of nowhere, thus my options for entertainment services are limited and I have the basic cable tv package from my provider, which due to my location, is broadcast in analog format. Well I chose to believe the hype that 'HDTV's are the shit' (and they do make games look quite nice I admit) and bought one. Unfortunately I didn't do all the reading I should have(silly me) and when I hooked up my cable to the TV, the picture quality looked terrible to say the least. So I figured that my cable company should be able to help me with this little dilemma, and normally they could have by providing me with some box that would upgrade my cable to HD, but as luck would have it, the HD service isn't available in my area. A tiny beacon of hope remained, since over the phone my provider told me I could go to one of their offices and purchase an upscaler or something that would make the picture look better. Either my cable provider is a blatant liar or the employee's at their local office are incredibly dense(the latter of the two options is becoming more feasible in my mind) , because the people at the office I went too had no idea what I was talking about, and had no knowledge of an 'upscaler' that would help me fix my picture. Better yet, they also informed me that in 2009, when everyone is supposed to be switching to a digital format, that they will continue to broadcast my cable to me in analog format...

      I then considered switching to one of the three satellite TV providers around here, but wouldn't you know it, I don't have a good view at the southern sky from my home(which is a requirement I guess) and cant get service from then either...Bleh, I'm sorry for bitching and having you read this long pointless post....my question is, is there anything I can do to increase the quality of my picture?

      Ah, the FMA anime. I actually watched this before I started reading the manga. Reguardless, it is quite amazing as I'm sure many of you know. Feel free to talk about anything related to the Fullmetal Alchemist anime here, but if you want to talk about the story but don't want to use spoiler tabs please go to the FMA: Plot/Spoiler Discussion topic. Thanks!

      I can list tons, but the best of the best I'd have to say are...

      Berserk - Long and awesome.
      Gantz - Sort of long and kickass.
      Parasyte - Short and kickass aswell.
      Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro - Kind of long and still on-going, very kickass.

      At first I didn't like it to much, but the music appealed to me. So I bought it. Its a good game, it would've been better if it wasn't $15 though. It is a good game, you'll get hooked into it, as you advance. The only thing that freaks me out are the bunnies in the game.
