News Comments > Tribes Vengeance Plans
4. Is this the patch . . Nov 12, 2004, 11:06 ZigZang
 
that makes more than 600 people want to play it? Seriously, I simply don't understand why the Tribes series has completely failed to attract more players.

there's pretty much no one I wouldn't kill for HL2 this weekend. Same thing goes for an ice-cold Duff beer.

8. Re: eh.... Nov 12, 2004, 10:56 ZigZang
 
IIRC, this isn't the first time Marvel has done this. They might was well sue 3DSMax makers since people can make Hulk and Wolverine characters there as well. Hell might as well sue the paper and pencil companies since people can draw their own Hulk and Wolverine comics, too.

8. Re: Hollywood's cutting edge Nov 11, 2004, 11:32 ZigZang
 
But the real draw, they say, is the new technology's ability to create ever more complex stories with cinematic qualities because they are done on DVDs, which will store more images.

This is my favorite idiotic quote from the article. She's talking about how Halo 2 provides a high level of graphic detail. What does that have to do with DVDs?

7. Hollywood's cutting edge Nov 11, 2004, 11:23 ZigZang
 
the huge success of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles nearly a decade ago made the leap from video game to big screen.

The TMNT originally came from the black and white comic book then was made into a cartoon and I believe the arcade game. The fans of TMNT were fans of the comic, not the game or the shitty cartoon. Her point is valid, but her example is plain wrong. This is just one of several disconnects in this article that makes me think she, the author, doesn't have a solid grasp of the subject material.

I think I may be falling for the hype I am seriously considering getting a ShitBox just to play Halo 2, especially with a 15% off coupon from BestBuy and two $75 gift cards burning a hole in my pocket

Not to mention that Halo 2 comes with 2 free months of XBox live . . . <"gandhi come play with us, you will give in to your desires . . .">

13. To quote Uma in Pulp Fiction Nov 9, 2004, 17:08 ZigZang
 
"I said, God Damn!"

I know this has been said, Oh, about 1,000 times already, but I just don't have the time to play all the excellent games that are coming out.

Can I have a "woot"!?

16. Audigy with USB ports Nov 9, 2004, 15:33 ZigZang
 
I'd be 10x happier with my Audigy breakout box if it simply had USB 2.0 ports on it. Not sure why they've avoided doing this.

10. Re: Kinda Like Jackass... Nov 9, 2004, 15:27 ZigZang
 
The extra dvd was packed with tons of stuff and I was really surprised how much difficulty Bungie had with the design of the game

I'm flying from SanFran to Chicago this afternoon and I'm planning on watching the extra's DVD on the flight. Glad to hear there is some good stuff on it. Now I just hope my laptop has the juice to let me watch the whole thing. . . . or I'll have to watch a very dumbed down version of "Anchorman" ("you know I'm kinda big deal around here . . . ")

Marketing. i haven't seen such a massive, well organized, media and retail propaganda blitz since Doom3 and the Republican Convention.

i was flipping thru the channels yesterday and CNN was reporting on this upcoming "event", warning people of long lines and traffic jams at midnight, like it was breaking news from Fallujah!

Personally, I think its great that game releases (even if they are console releases <why am I so biased?>) are great for gaming and our hobby as a whole.

I don't understand how that crap is still around. So damned stupid.

I agree, but I do recall how bad some of the original Quake "movies" were back in the day (ie Ranger Gone Bad). I guess Red vs. Blue is a little more polished, but I find it interesting how somethings don't penetrate the public conscience until it's spawned from a console.

1. Halo 2 Nov 9, 2004, 13:19 ZigZang
 
I picked up Halo 2 this AM on my way to work. For $5 it is IMO totaly worth getting the metal-cased "special edition". I've not been excited about a console game for some time so hopefully this will rock.

As many of you may remember I've been a staunch critic of Halo (in terms of how it compares to its PC bretheren) so I am hoping Halo 2 will enlighten me as to how much fun a FPS on the XBox can be. I'll admit I never played Halo on the Xbox only on the PC and while I enjoyed it I never found it worthy of the praise some heap on it.

Anyone start playing this yet? Any comments? No spoilers please.

Hmmmm ... we amy need to call in the big guns to combat the voter apathy.....

Calling Derek Smart!!!!

Now that's what I'm talking about!!

Actually, I do have a comment on Spector's departure. Anyone who denies Spector's impact on <begin qualifier> pc <end qualifier> gaming isn't giving him credit he deserves. It does bum me out that DX:IW was so consolized, but that really is a matter of preference and jilted expectations. I'm not really suprised to see Spector leave as I've always felt Ion Storms existence was rather tenuous. I wish him luck and I will keep an eye out for whatever project he works on next.

I have no comment on this topic. I believe the projected size of this thread has been sorely overestimated.

How does Darth Vader come back, didn't he die in Return of the Jedi?

He didn't die at the end of Return of the Jedi, it was his clone.

What did you think? Some of the images of the star cruisers burning and the exchange of fire between them looked very cool. Man I hope this movie rocks.
