Do you guys think if I started a begger website to raise funds for an Xbox, you'd chip in? I mean....I am in bad health, I do have tons of debt, my son is in a coma and I really need some breat implants....but all I'm asking for is a couple of bucks to enjoy some games.

Surely you must respect my restraint.


Sorry about your health, son, and lack of tits. But, I have to say, get a FARKING job you looser :)

200lbs lighter. Not a gaming geek and probably making much more money.

Wow, that's a BIG statement. Not only are you assuming that the people posting here are geeks, but also, you are making more mney than everyone here? By "BIG", I was not commenting on your former size, by the way.
 
2003-03-16 12:43:30 AM  
mney = money
 
2003-03-16 12:44:35 AM  
yea.. screw xBox. They bought out Bungie. If it werent for Microshiat, we would all have Halo on our PC's by now. God damn cocksuckers. Turn a nice Mac started company into farking Xbox people. God.. they must not be able to sleep at night. Crack smokers.

Have finally purchased a router so I can do the xbox live thing (that is, without pulling my ehternet cable outta my computer), however, I am waiting for more titles to go live. I already have mech assault and nba 2k3 but those are not quite compelling enough for me to get it. It would be nice if apex was live compatible, I am really diggin that game. On the computer vs. console debate, I do agree that the pc games are generally better than their console counterparts, however, with the console there is no endless tweaking or patching. Case in point, I love Commmand and Conquer: Generals, but the getting a net game started with one of your friends is such a pain in the ass I have completely given up. Then again, it is an EA game and I should not really be surprised that the net code sucks cranks. Also, I have never had a problem with a console game not working right out of the box. On the PC side, after purchasing a game the first thing is do is go and patch the damn thing. One last thing, anyone thinking about buying Masters of Orion 3, save your money and buy Galactic Civilizations when it comes out later this month. That is all.

I don't have an XBOX. I have a GeForce 4 Ti 4600.

Which of course runs Splinter Cell at a beautiful high resolution.

And Homeworld. And Medal of Honor.

Got X-Box Live the day it was released. The first night alone was almost worth the $50. My gamertag is SSJVegeto, and I pretty much play MechAssault exclusively. I kick some serious ass in a Mad Cat...

Well, first off, SOCOM is a Sony 1st party game, chances are slim there's an XBox version. ;)

Anyway, as of now, XBox live is very much a closed off system. People log into the Live servers, get an opponent, and then either play a game hosted on the Live system (e.g., Mechassault), or initiate a P2P game (e.g., NFL2kBlah). Sony's (and Nintendo's) online structure is different in that publishers and developers get to run their own systems. In theory, Playstation 2 and GameCube (and PC) owners could play together, but politics more than anything would probably stop that. XBox is pretty much out of the loop unless Microsoft rewires it, so to speak.

The real test will be the Ghouls and Ghosts MMORPG that's coming out for all three consoles and the PC.

I bought an Xbox when it first came out (like an idiot- $300). Now the damn thing has "shiat the bed". I'm going to get a new one when I feel like it, is Xbox live any good?

So... did the retailer or Microsoft refund your money on the first one?

If not, your decision to buy ANOTHER one after the first broke down strikes me as a fantastically stupid decision that flies in the face of sensible reasoning.

You know what they say about fools and their money...

oh, and NO BIATCHING! You can only biatch at another console if you wouldnt accept it even if given to you for free!

Wooh! I fall into your category. I wouldn't accept a stupid console if it was given to me free. PC's will always have better graphics and you can do more with them (homework, fark.com, game, fark.com, photoshop, fark.com, watch/listen to dvds, mp3s, avi's, etc... fark.com.
 
2003-03-16 01:38:37 AM  
To the people that actually DO have X-Box live: how's the voice chat? Is it cool or is it just 13 year olds calling you a noob or a fag?

And please can we NOT start a PC vs. Console flame war? Neither is better, they both have pros and cons.

PC
Pro: top of the line PCs blow away consoles, downloadable upgrades and mods, online play been around forever. Best types of games: Shooters (mouse and keyboard baby), Real-tiem strategy, RPGs.
Con: Very expensive to keep up with technology curve, patches, system incompatibility, not as comfy as sitting on the couch in front of the TV, not very easy for multiplayer gaming on one machine.

Consoles
Pro: no bugs, patches, or installation issues; far, far cheaper (a good console lasts 5 years and costs what a high-end graphics card does--a computeris top-of-the-line for maybe 6 months); easy to crowd friends around.
Best games: sports, fighting, action/platformers
Cons: no upgradeability, no mods/downloads (although that isprobably coming), inferior TV resolution (although HD and progressive scan are catching up).

I bought my PS2 because it was much cheaper than upgrading my computer. And it's great. But I also wish I had a computer that will run, say, SimCity 4 (although most people tell me the NSA's supercomputers would chug on it). True gamers don't put down platforms. True gamers play as many platforms as they can get their hands on, because there's great stuff on all of them.
 
2003-03-16 01:39:28 AM  
Got live, and when I have time to play it's great. Wish there were some better live games though. Unreal 2003 for the PC is just so much better than on xbox. I do like the download content, just extended the life span of Splinter Cell with the new level.

Gamertag is Deviance

I got selected as a beta tester during the second wave. Been lovin it ever since. I can kick a lot of ass in MGP, and can pretty well hold my own in GR.

I had Unreal Championship, but it ran horribly on my XB. Dont know if anyone else experienced it, but the framerate on mine was terrible. Other than that, I love my Xbox. I have 50+ songs my HD right now cause the custom soundtrack feature of games is great.
 
2003-03-16 01:44:28 AM  
got Live the day it debuted. user name "Thresher"
Unreal is worst game. ever. Sold it on Gotapex for terrible loss just to get rid of it, even warned the buyer how bad it was. Waiting for Halo2 since Halo can't be played on "Live". Total asshat-ripoff artists! Halo2 will own me, however. Right now I own a doorstop. :(

Consoles
Pro: no bugs, patches, or installation issues


Sadly, now that Xbox Live allows downloading of "upgrades" there will probably be some "features" that are fixed later on. Several gaming magazines have speculated on this topic. Also, there have been some buggy console games. They suck and never leave Japan (usually) to be sold in the U.S.

No, reread it. He asked where would we be. In my case, I'd be 200lbs lighter, not a gaming geek and making more money if I Atari never came home. I meant me. =)

A-MEN to the A-MEN. I bought a PS2 and Xbox because they each had something which the other didn't. I would have bought my PS2 for GT3 alone and the same goes for the Xbox and Halo. I'm planning on buying a GameCube so I can play the Resident Evil updates, Rogue Squadron, etc. Lately I've mainly been playing PC games such as Unreal 2 and Age of Mythology among others. But, the consoles still get their time and never more than when friends are over.

MechAssault. Roommate has some other games, but they lag too damn much.

It's my roommate's Xbox live acct, but I play often enough under his handle: Bloodtank (don't ask me).

It's all about the gauss! Me roommate is a Hammer whore.

ElwoodCuse - You're as likely to encounter polite, mature people as you are trash talking college age types and annoying 13 year olds. I usually don't play with the headset unless I'm playing with friends.

Economics and ease of use. I can get an Xbox or PS2 for $200, and a Gamecube for $149 and it will (hopefully) be supported for 5 years.

Obviously, I have a PC too. Love PC gaming. Love console gaming.

I guess I just have too much video game love to start picking sides like this is college football or something important.

Ahhh yes, they great console wars...I love them all, except Jaguar.....that is hopefully a pain that no man or woman will have to go through again...it had such promise but then it went down the shiater!
