13. Jury: eBay guilty of patent infringement May 28, 2003, 14:36 Hyatus
 
Wow...online patents have really gotten out of hand.

"Buy it Now!" is patented? That's the dumbest thing I've
heard today(course, it's early).

I loved that game. ^_^

I thought the game was fun. Not 'mind-blowingly
technologically advanced virtual matrix simulation' fun.
But fun, nonetheless.

Of course, it'd be nice if they fixed the horrible control
problems and Naobi driving like a person afflicted with
CP..."Naobiiiii!"

Also made a great companion to the movie(I played through
half of it with Ghost before I saw it in the theatres...I
totally recommend playing half of this game before you see
the theatrical release).

"Donating money for a kid to buy a new computer, it's the perfect example of just what seems to be wrong with society nowadays.."

First of all, it's not a computer, it's an iPod.
Second, so what if people decide to give a couple bucks to
this kid instead of cancer research? If you should be
complaining about anything, it should be that we get
more updates about this french-canadian high school kid than
we do about how the research is going. Lots of people
donate to cancer research and how often do you hear updates
about any new 'solid' breakthroughs?

As well, LOTS of people downloaded this. If this were a
major studio release, they would've charged for this and the
'artist' would've gotten his pittance. It's just a nicer
way of paying for his work.

Besides, I'm sure all of that money you pour into games and
DVDs could've gone to cancer research as well. Like movie
studios need any more money. ~.~

Dreamcast was the first console to go online.
I suppose most people forget about Phantasy Star Online?

And Japan also had some gems like Sakura Taisen Online,
Gundam Online and Alien Front Online. That's far from a
complete list. Still, I think the DC and the XBox have
about the same number of games that people WANT to play
online(at the moment). So, it's unfair not to credit the
DC with being the first online console(not to mention that
it didn't force you to pay per month for the service and
then leave you with the occasional game's per month
service ~.~).

[oops, my bad...just re-read the post...yeah, DC was never
'focused' to be online]

News Comments > New Enter the Matrix Patch
48. *sigh* May 17, 2003, 15:06 Hyatus
 
Okay, this game isn't worth $50, but I still thought it was
a fun game(minus the driving and sniping(which didn't work
very well). I played it just a tad before I saw the movie
and I thought it made the movie better. "72 hours...that's
how long Zion stood last time." I was like, "huh?" But
it made total sense when I saw the movie.

And the hacking code is easy. It uses 5 binary digits(1s
and 0s). It's basically the exact same thing as Master
Mind. It's random every time, btw.

There are also different logins you can use. 'freemind' and
'cowboycurtis'.

All in all I think it's a great little package deal with the
movie. It's FAR from perfect, so don't go in expecting
Matrix Payne x 10(~.^).

Yeah, the theatre here is pretty cheap. $7 at night, $5
matinee showings.

I would've gone earlier, but my g/f was working. ~.~

I played a bit of the game before I went to see the movie(as
well, I watched the first one over again(but, fell asleep)).

I don't think you'll like the movie as much if you don't
play the game first. There were a couple q's the game
brought up that peaked my interest and were answered in the
movie. Hopefully, I'll beat the first part of the game
tonight(you can play as Captain Nairobi(sp?) or Ghost).

The game has some flaws. The puzzles suck and it takes you
awhile to figure out how to do all the moves. Plus, there's
a few bugs that HOPEFULLY the patch fixed(most notably how
impossible it is to use the first person controls because of
some stupid mouse bug...you'd THINK they'd play through it
first, eh?).

Still, overall, it's a pretty fun action game with style.

Only missed the last q.

Actually, I thought Matrix Reloaded was great.
Yes, it wasn't the first movie, but seriously...were you
actually EXPECTING it to be?

There was a part here and there that seemed a bit hokey, but
as a whole I thought the movie was great.

I thought X-Men 2 was a much better and more enjoyable
movie, but I still think M:R was well worth the $7. ^_^

Well, this sucks.

Personally, I say nix on the new NiN album.
Fragile sucked. It was too happy.

You don't listen to NiN because you're happy. You listen to
it when you feel angsty. Damn Reznor should do some Doom 3
tracks first. Maybe it'll inspire him to do a better album
this time. ~.~

I was GOING to get it at $150, but $180 is just enough of
a pricetag to not justify my wanting it.

Besides, most of the games I want to play are already out
or are soon to be for the PC.

I'll never understand the appeal of this game.

Everyone at the last LAN party I was at played this game for
probably 13-14 hours.

Three out of eight of us got bored a few hours through and
decided to play Armagetron instead. Talk about a fun game
with good graphics and actual skill that ANYONE can play.
Which reminds me...I pWn3d on Tron at the arcade the other
day. ^_^

plasma-ish stuff through that ops-guy look a lot like
FF: Spirits Within?

Washington.

I don't think 11 year old kids and such should be playing
these games, but really...

Show me one 14+ kid these days that doesn't spend more than
3 hours in church a week and isn't seriously mentally
retarded who couldn't handle the 'violence' in GTAX.

Can someone remind me why laws like this aren't votable?

News Comments > Enter the Six Matrix CDs
27. Re: 6 cd's Apr 15, 2003, 19:55 Hyatus
 
"Even the Baldur's Gate release on DVD sold like crap."

1. That came out before most PCs HAD DVD players, IIRC.
2. By the time BG DVD came out, most people had already
purchased and ran through the game. Why would anyone want
an ADDITIONAL copy of a game they own, especially when said
game is retailing for $40 or $50?

BMoney: $0.50 sounds a little expensive per CD to me. I
mean, wouldn't it just be easier and cheaper for publishers
to sell games on CD-Rs?

58. What OS Are You? Apr 14, 2003, 16:22 Hyatus
 
I ended up being OS/2 Warp as well.

Personally, I loved Windows ME's interface tweaks and it
was pretty stable as far as I could tell.

However, Windows ME does not like DOS games and I sooo
enjoy my old DOS games...

X-Com and Master of Magic are greaaaat on a bigscreen. ~.^

News Comments > Postal 2 Demo
14. Re: Point-Counterpoint Apr 11, 2003, 19:25 Hyatus
 
The first Postal is tons of fun.
Yeah, it's not a masterpiece by any means. Still, it's
a great time-waster.

Geez...like any of you Postal 1 haters never break into a
few games of Minesweeper or Tetris.

Postal 1 was a bloody version of Robotron and I KNOW that
game has fans.

I haven't played Postal 2 yet, but I will. From what I
read they were going for some weirdful(c) game instead of
the timewasting, aggression-killing fun of the first one.

If it didn't take so long to load, it sounds like it would
be pretty interesting. I hope the RWS staff fixes some of
these glaring problems.

Rollins is great.
I agree about his "comedy", tho...I don't really like it.
Not my bag, I suppose.

Off the comedic stage and musically, I think he seems like
a pretty cool guy. Glad to see he's doing nerdy gamer
stuff. ~.^
