Video Games and E3
« on: April 3, 2003, 01:51 PM »
Do you guys like Video Games?  I have a PS2 and have been having a lot of fun playing the new Two Towers game.  I have a N64 and NES too with lots of games.  I was thinking about picking up Bounty Hunter for the PS2 as well since it is a Star Wars game afterall.

I used to play video games long ago. I started with the old hand helds then I bought a Nintendo. After that I bought a NES & Sega CD. Man the nights my friend & I played games. Start at 6pm & finish when the sun came up. Loads of fun. Still got them & my TRS80.  :o

I have been getting back into games. I recently picked up an Xbox and have been very pleased with it. Although I am getting a calus on my thumb ;D

 I have most of the SW games for it and I like them all so far.
 
 I grew up with Atari 2600 so the new systems are simply amazing to me.

Yo I play video games. Mainly FPS on the computer though, over the internet... I like the interaction... I have the TWO TOWERS game for the game cube. It is really cool. I am stuck in the damn faghorn forest right now with the troll. Any suggestions on how to beat it?

Yep, I'm a gamer here though I haven't played any lately since finishing The Getaway for PS2. I currently have a Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, Playstation, PS2 and an XBox. And several games, some of which I have yet to even play.  ::)  One of these days...

I've been playing a ton of Tiger Woods 2003 for ye olde PS2 lately.  I love this game and the courses and game play is amazing.  I am more of a Sports guy when it comes to gaming (especially Madden) I've been jonesin to pick up the TTT game though.  It looks sweet.  

I also got a Logitech wireless controller last week which is nice but not as nice as the Sony wired models...

Well I got LOTR:TTT and it is an awesome game, the medling of Movie and Game footage is really awesome.  I beat Fangorn Forest last night with Aragorn.  Great graphics, not terribly difficult and excellent use of the LOTR score make this an OCB 9 Kissies out of 10

I used to, but not much anymore.  Job, outdoor interests, kid, wife - all take up time (all good too).

Oh the glory days of playing.  Pong was so cool.  And then it got upgraded so you could actually play doubles.  Sure, it was a bit tricky hooking wires up to the back of the TV and maybe you got a little electrocuted.  Had a bit of an effect on the screen too, but wasn't so noticeable cuz everything was black and white...

Uh, whoops.  Excuse me.

More recently, various versions of Links (LS, 2001) which actually proved helpful in learning how to read greens.  Aa few SW games, but older stuff, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter and others.  Nothing too new.  

Have super nintendo.  Wife plays Mario games but I don't use it much.  Have the SW version, so do occasional pod racing, but my old eyes get too burned by looking at those graphics (crappy, IMO).  Perfect Dark is a hoot, but I only play it when my nephew is in town, so twice a year.  but those nights are great.  Much beer and bad food, lots of blood and guts.

I knew Brent would bring up Pong :-*

I just picked up Grand Theft Auto III for the low low price of $15 at Best Buy.  It is now one of PS2's greatest hits...haven't played it yet but I had to pick it up to see what all the fuss was about.  Still waiting to pick up Bounty Hunter as well...I'll wait for a price drop

I also really want to get a Gamecube. There are a ton of good deals out there now including buy a GC and get Zelda or Metroid for free, I want to wait for the price drop though if it comes (anyone heard anything?)

I'm also waiting for the price drop on BountyHunter... I've played Splinter Cell lately, its nothing all that special unless your big into the stealth, sneaking around with a single clip of ammo in a crappy .22'ish pistol.
I've gotten to probably the third level and I've just lost interest, to be honest... I still think Hitman2 is the best shooter on the PS2, with GTA:VC taking the title for best game.

Actually, I'm pretty excited to see BH drop down to the $30 tag, but I doubt it will... Racer Revenge is still at 40 something, last I checked.  :'(

I bought an X Box back in January and I waste a couple of nights a week playing games. I bought Simpsons Road Rage a few weeks ago and have been playing it quite a bit. I also like Medal of Honor.

I rented Splinter Cell about a month ago, and it was great at first.  It has excellent video & sound quality, flows well, and has a good story.  Unfortunately I can't stand being in stealth mode the ENTIRE time.  I'm more of the type to walk into a room with a machine gun, and just level everyone in a matter of seconds.

That's why I liked Bounty Hunter so much.  Constantly kicking major butt in the game.  Who used those poisonous darts?  Definitely not me.  Flame thrower was my favorite weapon of choice.
