8. Re: and then there were two Sep 21, 2005, 09:40 PHeeNIxx
 
Ahhh myst. I played the original, Riven, Exile, and Revelation all without any online hints or outside assitance. Sometimes it would take several days or a week (or more) to figure out a puzzle, but I was nothing if not persistent.

I liked how it wasn't always just about solving a puzzle ... often the harder part was just trying to figure out what the puzzle was that needed to be solved, especially true in Riven.

I also remember one pixel hunt in Riven that probably stumped me for weeks ... some microscopic button on top of an idol. But logically, it makes sense to hide a button that reveals a secret passage ... right? So it wasn't unrealistic or unfair at all really ... it just required patience and attention to detail.

An important thing to note is that you have to be in the mood to play myst to enjoy myst. If you sit down with even the slightest tendency towards impatience, you'll start to get into trouble and hit walls that will require extensive backtracking. If you sit down and fire up Riven, when you're really in the mood for Serious Sam, expect to be unhappy But sometimes, when I'm all FPSed out, I want a slow paced, absorbing experience that lets me take a step back and think and explore a fantastic world. Myst is for those times.

I have a question regarding performance; many of the game trailers have made this out to be quite a beautiful game. The two main cities for example are packed with characters and structures and they look amazing .... I have 1 GIG RAM, 3.4GHz processor, 9800PRO 128MEG video card want to know if I can expect decent performance, even in busy places like cities.

I'm also really looking forward to this one .... I've always been a Myst fan and this looks to be the best in the series.

Are there any stores in Ontario (Ottawa...) that would have SCII in today? Calling around (EB, Best Buy, FS, Compucentre) it sounds like the soonest will be tomorrow. Grrrr.

I don't understand why everyone hated the first few levels without the saber...I enjoyed them. Corridor battles with stormtroopers using starwars weapons and laser sounds is fun damn it!!!!!!!!

Blue, perhaps you could give EVERYONE the power to mute/remove fredrickson's posts. That way we could control him ourselves in the event that you are unable to remove his posts in a timely fashion.

No, no confirmation email. I assume they will only contact anyone if they get in....they usually don't send sign-up confirmation emails.

I never get in anyways But I keep tryin'!

There IS a USB gamecube controller adaptor. Check out the following link - I would assume you can use it with a wired gamepad or a wavebird.

Well John, you have to learn to expect the unexpected in this crazy world. So shut up.

This is an interesting idea.....I will probably try it out once they have support for more games (e.g. UT2K3). Right now it looks like only America's Army is supported.

6. Max Payne Kung Fu Edition Mar 11, 2003, 17:34 PHeeNIxx
 
http://kungfu.maxpayneheadquarters.com/

Just for anyone who is interested in bullet time kung fu fun TODAY, check out the above link and grab the Kung Fu 3.0 Max Payne mod. I reinstalled Max Payne a few nights ago so I could try this out and it is VERY cool. Quality is excellent, and there are a tonne of matrix style moves/combos in there (heck, the tutorial is in the dojo where you can slam guys into posts and break them just like in the movie :))

Anyone who owns Max Payne owes it to themselves to check this little gem out.

If this is allowed to take place, we will finally have conclusive evidence that there is no God.

Games aren't always designed to appeal to EVERYONE. If they wanted Raven Shield to appeal to a massive audience they would have made it an expansion for The Sims. Just remember to feed your team members and take them to the toilet regularly!!
