    • Hrm... What to do...

      I have gotten a payment of 1000 MS points from a friend recently and I am debating what to do...

      So gimmie some help and answer the poll.

      After three, THREE FUCKING YEARS OF NOT BEING AFFECTED BY SPYWARE, MALWARE OR VIRUSES...

      I get hit. One bad enough to corrupt eplorer.exe and render my computer useless without a system restoration.

      *sigh* Well, my family has officially been forbidden from ever using internet explorer EVER again...

      And I'm thinking I need to stop my torrenting. Granted, I didn't get hit with what seemed to be something bad until last night... I think I need to be a bit more cautious...

      I'm sure it was probably pure coincidence that it triggered last night and fucked with explorer but... Well...

      I need to back up EVERYTHING as it is right now as to keep from the HDD being crushed entirely but... Well, I'm hopeful that won't happen. However if it does, all I need is a new HDD, a copy of Vista and maybe another couple gigs of RAM.

      Just planning for the future mind you.

    • So What Can I Run on High or Max?

      10 years ago

      PhatPhil

      Well, it's come to this, in terms of OWNED PC games, versus demos:

      Full Games
      -Half Life 2 (High/Max)
      -Doom 3 and RoE expac (High)
      -Indigo Prophecy (Max)

      Feh, don't care beyond that. Demo's:
      -Portal (High)
      -F.E.A.R. 2 (Medium)

      That's about it. I wanted to try and find a Mirror's Edge demo to REALLY try and crash it if I could but eh, no luck on one.

      Still, I'm very pleased with it. It means if somewhere down the line I wanna own F.E.A.R. 2 for the PC, I can.

    • Upgrade!

      10 years ago

      PhatPhil

      My computer is repaired and I am back!

      List of things I got include:
      -New power supply (400W to be specific)
      -NVIDIA 9400 GT Graphics card
      -640GB External Hard Drive

      The key source of the problem? It was the fucking power supply. It just died out.

      Luckily, I am back up and running blazing fast.

      But it doesn't end there. The shitputer we were given from the homeschooling program? We've upgraded the RAM and now it runs VERY well. Went from 248MB to 1GB of RAM so it'll actually be able to run XP AND another program without much slow down. :P

      I've done minor tests, I can run both Half Life 2 and F.E.A.R. at the highest settings possible at 30fps. I need to re-activate my WoW account in order to determine how well that will run.

      Other than that, I'm finally running a GOOD computer, rather than an OKAY computer. Happy days. :D

      That's right, IT'S NON EXISTANT.

      Jesus, I was up till 4 playing L4D tonight...

      Oh and I bought a community game today, A Fading Melody...

      Trying to complete it to see where the story is going and to know what all the metaphors mean.

      Oh and I guess the other thing I felt like commenting on that I have yet to say anything about is the HBO drama, In Treatment.

      I'll do more about it tomorrow night... maybe next week, if only because it will have concluded by then. season 2 that is.

      Later.

    • How To: Make Assassin's Creed 2 Kick ASS

      10 years ago

      PhatPhil

      I thought I'd just toss out my commentary on what I think would make AC2 really, REALLY awesome. Not in any order or list form, I'm just gonna start off...

      The first thing I tend to think about is the order in which things are presented. AC1 unfortunately... Had a bit too much monotony in how things worked. It was too simple, talk to Al Mualim, get upgrade, go to town, find view points, complete missions, kill target, LATHER RINSE REPEAT.

      I mean, I know they're expanding the mission types beyond eavesdrop, pickpocket, interrogate and informant but... That wasn't 'really' the sucky part to it. I hated how everything was approached the same...

      I know the 'memories' need to be approached in blocks and therefore, become accessible in stages but... I hope maybe they make a change into how the Animus is handled and therefore, allow the player to change up how the memories are recalled as they wish.

      Secondly, I want more weapons. I mean, swordfighting was fine, I loved throwing daggers and... that was really it. Everything else kinda sucked. Where's that crossbow that was shown in the opening? Combat needs more variety.

      Thirdly... I want a mix up in how the target assassinations are handled. The only thing that REALLY changed, was the place they occurred and how easily you could get to the target. In fact, the most EXCITING target chase was the second to last, the point where you pursue robert de... whatever his name is, fighting off hordes of enemies and ending in an awesome duel.

      And really, that's it in my book... Oh, the only SPECIFIC things I want to comment on is that since it's set in Italy, they BETTER have Rome be one of the cities. Even cooler though? I'd love and HOPE to see the vatican in there. Being it's INSIDE of Rome and probably well tied to the plot, I'm betting we'll see it. And... beyond that, can't think of much else.

      I'm just looking forward to where the story goes...

      And I hope they made sure to get Kristen Bell back in on it.

      OH! And even better would be if they included some kind of a data carry over for players of AC1 like Mass Effect 2 is doing. Even if it's only just a minor thing, I'd like some noting on the fact that I completed the first game, purely just to keep the game from having to 'fill me in'.

      Cause you know, there are gonna be idiots out there stupid enough to play the second game and be like, "OMG, TELL ME WUT IS HAPPEND?!"

      That is all.

    • Continuing to Rise

      10 years ago

      I've been climbing the leaderboards again for Uno Rush, just broke 450 this evening.

      ...Other than that, just been playing a lot of L4D. I'm renting RS6: Vegas 2 tomorrow though because my friend has a copy and I wanna play the co-op with him.

      Plus, it'll be another game to get some gamerscore out of. Getting that 5th digit will be nice...

      Again, I'm not a huge e-peen flaunting kind of person, but I still like seeing that number rise.

      And 10k is a goal of sorts. After that... I don't have 'major ambitions' to be honest.

      Getting the new PC either tomorrow or thursday, not sure just which yet...

      Anyone else excited for XBL Primetime as well? I mean, granted 1 V.S. 100 is the only offering at the moment, it's still awesome.

      And surely they'll expand onto other games in the future.

      I wanted the finale ED for fate/stay night after I finished watching the series but the single wasn't out. I waited for 8 whole month for the damn single to release. Your lucky you're getting this sooner lol.

      I'll wait for my DVD in the mail, preordered it on that July 4th sale. It ended up being 32 dollars for me. Kind of expensive if you think about it. But still, I will get a copy while probably the people at the con will be fighting over a copy themselves.

      I want the art box!

      Yeah, that's true, that's really the only problem I have with Macs, but I've got a laptop anyway, and even with my old desktop the only thing I upgraded was the graphics card, I was too lazy to upgrade anything else. But someone I know who's fairly knowledgeable about Macs has told me they're a bit upgradeable, but you don't have nearly the freedom you would with a PC.

    • Shinigami28

      12 years ago

      I think its from Really? Really! Not sure.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      No, and to be honest most people with Macs piss the hell out of me because they're so elitist about it. Though I know people with PCs that are the same way. It's just personal preference, really.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      Or...for people who's parents offered to buy them a computer for college and they agreed and didn't fuss about what they wanted. ^^;

      Mac vs PC doesn't matter too much to me anyway. Both are fine in my eyes.

      No, Lucky Star moe drill is nothing similar to brain age. Well it might be but its mostly anime based questions. At least thats what I heard. Do you have a DS, you have any games to recommend?

    • Airwaffle

      12 years ago

      The last song is "Sekai wa sore wo ai to yobundaze" by Sambomaster, which is the ending theme to Densha Otoko. It's pretty epic in the game. They've got a handful of other good songs, but I feel the track list from the first game is actually better.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      Because I'm not going to bother my parents with a pre-order. Also...I still haven't seen more than 2 eps of Higurashi.

      And yeah, I know Haruhi'll have a thinpack later, but I'm sure Higurashi will as well, and I don't know if I want to buy it before I watch it. And plus, it's not like the SE that's out for it now is bad or anything. I think it'd be cool to have all the Haruhi SE DVDs.

      And to be honest, of all the anime that's actually out now, Kashimashi is at the top of the list.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      Oh no, I'm not saying it's gotten harder, just I occasionally slip up like that from time to time. I tend to sit and go through testimonies over and over again until I find something that makes sense, even if a lot of times it's a stretch.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      Agreed. I was just talking to someone earlier about a slip up I made. I picked a piece of evidence that I still think could have answered the question, and in practically the same way, but the game only wants one answer so I was docked a little life. Not a big deal though.

      I save a lot, just because I know the game is going to be particular about what I pick, so just in case I'm not looking at it the right way at first, I can go back.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      I won't take it personally. Honestly, I just enjoyed WC3, it's the only Blizzard game I've played a lot, and while I played a small amount of SC I never got into it as much. I tend to stick to the fantasy based games. But I did play SC a little, and I enjoyed it when I did. I'm not just excited about it because it's Starcraft, I'm excited because I like the RTS games Blizzard has made in the past. Now, if further in production it looks like it's not going to be as good, then you better believe I'm not wasting my money on it.

      But I have plenty of friends who will buy it just because it's Starcraft 2. Oh well. Their decision.

      And yeah, I was really looking forward to Starcraft: Ghost too, and I'm pissed that they got so far into development only to drop the project.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      Heh, if you want to go ahead, I can't promise I'll be playing all that frequently considering how often I used to play. I've really been looking for an escape recently though, so who knows?

      well, if you do get a GED, you could always do like i'm doing and go to a community college first, get an awesome GPA going, and transfer. my grades in high school were atrocious. it's kinda funny though, my counselor in 10th grade said i could never go to UGA (University of Georgia, just in case you didnt know), but i actually have a good enough GPA right now to be competition. xD

      might go there for the graduate program in marine biology depending on how my BSB at Georgia Southern goes

      I feel I should also clarify my last post a bit.

      When I say I Don't give a shit about the cast, that means I don't care WHO voices it. I'm not the kind of person to go 'Oh, it has Hooty Mc Whatsi in it, It's gonna suck' but, at the same time, I'm not gonna go 'OMG! IT HAS BOOBY O CHISELFACE! IT'S GONNA ROCK'. I honestly don't, as long as the DVDs have Jap audio, I'll probably sit and watch both versions.

      (I hope you liked my made up actor names. They were fun to think up)

      Yeah, don't call me a fanboy. I never learned the fucking dance, I don't rave on about it like it's the saviour of anime like some people do, hell, I've only seen the first eight episodes of the series.

      I was just shocked that it had a dub already. I don't give a shit about the cast, as long as it comes with the Japanese version on the UK DVD, I'm happy.

      Oh, wait, what the hell am I talking about. The UK never gets decent anime on DVD. My bad.

      I thought it was interesting, but not interesting enough for me to call a real awesome series. And I do agree it was overhyped a bit, but I think that about most big series like Naruto and Bleach. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy them, but there are so many other better series out there.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      That is true, I may end up buying it all if I've got the cash lying around. I don't know if I like the series that much really.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      I don't expect the dub to be able to replicate the original cast at all, which is why I just stick to the subs. And if that makes me elitist then so be it, it's just a matter of personal tastes. None of the voices I heard in the preview really felt right to me.

      But I don't hate dubs. Some of them I find to be perfectly fine. I have no problems with the FFXII, Cowboy Bebop, or Samurai Champloo dubs.
