What are some of those cheats and where did he get them from?

I've already beaten the game, I guess the only thing I could do would be to go back through on a higher difficulty level.......but, I've got other games now to keep me busy! :D

She was hard but, I beat her, and I have a new game now.

i beat tavion on my second try, mostly cause i was gawking at her on my first try. :naughty:

The easiest way to kill Tavion is by going on that tallest A/C unit looking thing and when Tavion tries to jump up there with ya go right under her so she lands right on top of you, it makes her jump again of your head and then she dies from the fall to the ground or she falls into the endless pit, thats how I always beat her

Taos
01-11-2003, 07:48 PM
Hey thanks, I'll have to try that the next time I play her. That will prove useful on the Jedi Knight difficulty. :)

Com Raven

Dead or Alive is the best looking beat'em-up right now...

I'll be sure and check that one out! I've been meaning to anyways. I've got these video store gift certificates I've got to use for something.......:)

Thrift
01-11-2003, 10:35 PM
It probably didn't help that I chose to do JKII on the hardest difficulty available straight off the bat, but I thought that for the level of ability that you're at, Tavion was pretty tricky.
Harder than Dessan if it comes to it.

Though I reckon just about the hardest fight was probably when you first encounter those two shadow troopers.
That was probably about the worst for me.

BTW. What the hell are those "Force Crystals" for.

And for that matter, what are those secret locations for?

Taos
01-12-2003, 01:45 AM
The force crystals make your lightsaber "stronger" so they can be used to defeat the shadowtroopers. As you know when you first fight the two of them in that circular room, your lightsaber is ineffective. So you need a stronger saber in order to defeat them.

The "secret locations" you're refering to, do you mean the secret areas? If so they are only there to collect extra health, weapons etc. Nothing else really.......

Thrift
01-12-2003, 08:19 AM
Ohh I see.

Thanks for that.

Hmm I just thought coz they display at the end of each level "Secret Areas 2/3" or whatever it might be something interesting to get them all.
Hahaha I'm glad I didn't go back and try and find them all in that case.

For those who have played it....what are your thoughts on the Xbox mp?

I think it's amazing for a console. In fact, it's the best console mp I've ever played. :D

I enjoy capture the flag at the warring factions. Look out, you're gonna fall off the edge! :)

Com Raven
01-13-2003, 06:46 AM
hmm, best mp has to be MA and of course Halo...

Also, UC...

Taos
01-13-2003, 10:26 AM
I just think JO because I'm a SW nut and I need to have the lightsabers. Halo is good, but I like Half-Life better...

I never have played mp of MA...I don't have LIVE.. :p

I have yet to play UC.

I bugged my mom to get me Xbox Live for my bday, which is January 21. =] Hopefully i'll get it, and then i'll be playing mech assault alot!

speaking of mechassault, i've reached..."wolf in sheeps'..." talk about hard....

edit: dam what a ****ty level. :mad: stupid 2 whateverthehellyoucallthems always destroy me, and that helicopter pisses me off. i can defeat those 2 smaller mechs, i stand on an edge and wait for the one to come, and the other gets caught in the blast, now that is pretty cool. *returns to playing mechassault* i'm going to beat it THIS week.


edit #2: HOLY ****. the small mech came up to me and the 2 bigger ones followed, i nuked the small one right when it walked away from me, the bigger one got caught in the explosion, and destroyed, and the other big one got destroyed in THAT explosion! THAT WAS SO DAMN AWESOME!!!! *attempts to beat the level*

edit #3: BEAT IT.

I FINALLY got my xbox magazine!!! And I first looked at the demo disk and it said' Ghost Recon' I nearly peed my pants, and now that I have played it....WHOA. It's so awesome! I haven't really played any tom clancy games, just the demos, but this one is SO COOL. I like how I can set up a group of peeps and select their weapons and all, and then go hunt down some terrorists! I tried it on only 1 person, where there's no teamates, and...WHOA was that scary and impossible!! I CAN NOT WAIT TO CHECK OUT THE SPLIT SCREEN MODE!!!! and then.....i'll buy the game with any birthday money that I recieve, hopefully my mom gets me xbox live, so then I can spend hours on it with that game. I love the sniper rifle and the nightvision goggles...and the level is HUGE...

I think if I beat it, it unlocks some more teammates for me to choose from!!!

Does anybody else have this game or plan to get it?

I've got it. I use a GF2mx 200. I still have to upgrade, ut won't until I get some new games ie KOTOR.

I run it on all low or can run it on 800x600 with characters high and textures high, but the other stuff really low detail. Turn shadows off also. Shadows use heaps of processing power.

Its a good game if you like the demo. The demo is one of the best levels in my opinion.

Taos

Ok then, since this is a pretty popular topic here on this board. I'm going to make one general thread that covers the whole topic. The other threads will be merged into this one so that any xbox game can be discussed here. :)

The reason being that all of the xbox threads seem to turn into discussions about other games anyways, so..........discuss. :)

Rogue,

If you have broadband or an LAN, multiplayer is really really good. I have 56K so it kept skipping but the few times when multi was playable I had a lot of fun.

The docks is my favourite multiplayer location. :)

Com Raven
01-19-2003, 01:17 PM
well on Xbox, 56k is no option :)

Rogue15
01-19-2003, 09:35 PM
that's the best thing about the xbox: the multiplayer on it dominates the multiplayer on the pc, cause there can't be annoying lag...if only sofII didn't have lag. :(

Taos
01-19-2003, 11:26 PM
Again another merger....it might be confusing at first, but this thread will evolve I think....they all seem to anyways. :)


Ok...I finally beat MechAssault today. :D I'm extremely happy. I love being able to use the Atlas and the Ragnarok. :D Man those things are powerful! :D

I think that my favorite level in the game is size matters 2. :)

OXM is the most horrible magazine I've ever read. They are good writers but their talent is wasted by their horrible attitude. Most of the team worked at PC Accelerator, but it didn't sell well do they did Daily Radar, then this, and now they act like they never liked PCs. They say the only good games are on Xbox. They're so insanely biased you can't trust most of the stuff they say, and then they claim they are unbiased. I can write better then they can.

Notion, you can get plenty of good previews online. As for the demos, thats fine, though personally I won't pay $25 or whatever for something that I feel should be free....and if I get the magazine I feel obligated to read it. Too bad you can't get just the disk.

My fav magazine used to be PC Gamer, but since they're in the same building as OXM and those other console magazines and have to deal with their anti PC stuff every day, they have (Immaturely) decided to respond in turn by acting like a bunch of PC fanboys and talking about how much consoles suck(Despite the fact that I've seen in OXM the PC Gamer editors give great reviews of console games....hypocrits).

I suppose if "Newspaper" counts as magazine my fav is The Onion.

I tried Mechassault single player....it was pretty sucky. Lame dialogue and story, and the action is ok but it isn't as good as the Mechwarrior series- part of the fun was customizing the mech, and then they stripped that away, and gave you only a few weapons, and so its pretty boring. THe multiplayer better be DAMN good to justify this getting Xbox game of the year. My dad has been too busy to set up Xbox Live, we don't even know if we can do it, since my router is on a different floor then my xbox, we're gonna have to drill holes in the floor and stuff.

On a differnt note, do you guys prefer Controller S or the default controller? Personally I don't really have a preference, I like em both fine- Controller S has better sticks and a better D pad, normal control has better black/white start/select button placement and feels more substantial in the hands.

Taos
01-29-2003, 04:34 PM
There should only be like 4 more 15......

beat it. that wasn't too difficult. =/ Now i'm left wishing i could walk to the local electronic store and pick up a copy of xbox live. :(

All my xbox games are beaten. Well...all the ones that I've bought. Haven't beat Jet Set Radio Future (i don't know wtf to do next and i don't really have waypoints :( ) or Sega GT 2002.

My friend let me borrow Metal Gear Solid 1 for as long as I want, so I might end up playing that.

Why don't your parents want you spending money on games? Tell them you can spend it on rap music if they'd prefer ;).

Yes PCs are more expensive platforms to maintain, which is one reason why consoles are so popular(Oh, sure, I hear people say how much PCs suck and how consoles are so great, but I bet you if PCs were $199 and consoles were $1800 they'd change their tune quick). Of course all platforms have great games. I own PC, Xbox, Gamecube, GBA(Much to my regret- I was waiting for a version with a backlight, everyone said it wasn't going to happen, and then I bought one and then the GBASP was annouced. Morons.), and will someday get a PS2 when I have money and the thing isn't so damn expensive(Cheapest console, worst technologiclly, SO WHY IS IT MORE EXPENSIVE THEN XBOX OR GAMECUBE?).

Ok, I rented Unreal Championship today.........and let me say....this is my new favorite mp. :D What an amazing game, the xbox surely doesn't disappoint at all. Anybody else played it? If so, what did you think? :D

This one blows away Halo and beats JO for the best mp. :D [that'll get some of you going ;)] I just wasn't as impressed by Halo as a lot of people were........I though it was too much like Half-Life [which isn't bad, I just was expecting/wanting something different]. I traded Halo in to get JO and I don't regret it at all. :D There's just something about those lightsabers....:D

UT 2003 better? (I know you said championship but they are very similar). Have you ever played Battlefield 1942? That kicks UT's ass. Much more diverse, UT is just kill kill kill with guns, In BF1942 you can heal your team, spot for artilerry, go on the front lines, drive tanks, fly planes, steer ships, man AA guns, I could go on forever. UT 2003 is fun, but repetitive. Also, the browser SUCKS(BF 1942's isn't that good either, but its much better then UT's). 99% of the server are empty except for bots but it counts bots for people and says they have people and I can't filter bots out. And it doesn't seem like many people play it, since most servers only have like 3 people on them, as opposed to the average BF server having 32 or so.

Taos
02-02-2003, 07:04 PM
Yeah, I said UC......it's the first one I think, before UT2003. I'm sure that battlefield 1942 is good, but I was just comparing the game to Halo for the simple reason to get Com going a bit. :D I know he is a big Halo fan and I wanted to mess with him........the running around killing part is exactly what I like about it. :D

Rogue15
02-04-2003, 07:51 AM
not yet. It's still being debated whether it'll be live capable or not.

here's lots of info for it:



www.planetxbox.com/projectego

some interviews, the april fool's one is pretty funny. http://www.planetxbox.com/projectego/gameinfo/interviews.shtml

and this is a review of how it plays so far:

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/r/?page=http://www.computerandvideogames.com/news/news_story.php(que)id=86427


the official site for it is coming Spring 2003, where we can expect a ton of info for it, hopefully.

Albion: a place of tranquility and peace, where only the brave venture far, afraid of the danger that lurks beneath. Civilization is under threat, vast lands tainted by an ancient evil; evil so destructive that no one dares speak up. You were born to take up the challenge. From the very beginning, your life will be one of choices. Live by the sword, or by sheer cunning. Choose the path of honor… or infamy, to become the most powerful of them all. Your face will be shaped by your paths, the future shaped by you.

The power to become a legend.

The land of Albion is a wild, beautiful place. There are bustling market towns where thieves lurk in every shadow. Woodcutters' encampments are nestled on the shores of forest lakes while strange sounds fill the night air. Brave fishermen live out their austere existence in coastal villages wracked by storms. Fur-hooded mountain children listen to tales of the demons that lurk in the darkness while wolves howl at the moon.

The people who live there are much like the people anywhere. They are thieves and gentlemen, assassins and clergymen, storekeepers and housewives.

One day, something comes along which changes their lives forever. You. You are born with the power of the Will. Albion will never be the same again.

Your family and pet dog are murdered. You are thrown out into the world with nothing but underwear on your body and blood in your veins. You go out to become whatever you wish.

Ego puts you in control of a hero, with a milestone idea of following his life from 17 years of age to 70 years or more. The idea is that you want to become a real hero, THE hero, a legend.



Create your life story from childhood to death

Grow from an inexperienced child

Into the most powerful being in the world

Choose the path of righteousness

Or dedicate your life to evil

Muscles expand with each feat of strength

And force of Will increases with each work of wit

Obesity follows gluttony

Skin tans with exposure to sunlight

And bleaches bone-white by moonlight

Earn scars in battle

And lines of experience with age

Each person you aid

Each flower you crush

Each creature you slay

Will change this world forever



Who will you be?

Ya, I know....I think it got "Good, not great" reviews. I am MUCH more hesitant to pay $50 for a console game then a PC game, mainly because on average, for some stupid reasons, console games are much shorter. I remember people went on and on about how long the 20 hour Metroid Prime was. Thats not long! And don't even get me started on Panzer Dragoon Orta(Don't et me wrong, I loved it, but GOD its short even with all the extra features).

Aerothorn
02-04-2003, 05:55 PM
Yes, UC is basiclly a UT 2003 port, but was not called that because it was developed specificlly for Xbox, so it isn't really a port, more like a copy of the game design. Battlefield 1942 still rules, though- more diverse, bigger levels, more weapons, more teamplay, more strategy, more more more. Oh yeah, and there is the fact that I kick large amounts of ass at it. Just yesterday, I was in a 60 player match, and got 29 points and 21 kills before I died for the first time, and I only died because I got caught in a "Me vs the American base full of tanks" situation.

As for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, it was quite fun for a while, but lacked the variety to have staying power- it got old after a month or two.

Aerothorn
02-05-2003, 06:21 PM
Max Payne was an exception, not the rule, at least back then. The average PC shooter is still longer, though, espescially considering most PC shooters have multiplayer and most console shooters don't. PC shooters also have mods and console's don't. Consoles can't even use expansions packs(Those poor Morrowind Xbox users couldn't play Tribunal:( ).

Its not just action, though, PC games in general are longer, I suppose its partially that on average PC games are more complex, and therefore can go on longer without getting boring/repetitive.

Unreall II is only 5-7 hours long if your not the slow type(I am the slow type, though- I get all the value I can from a game). Morrowind...now THERE is a value.

Anyway, lemme look at my collection....

Giants: Citizen Kabuto was pretty long....
Aliens vs Predator 2 was pretty long, since it had 3 campaigns....
Mechwarrior 4 was pretty long(not a FPS but an action game...I still got beat it, never did cause of hard drive crash)

KOTOR is currently number 3 on my most wanted list(#1 being DX2 and #2 being Halo 2). However, if Planetside meets its potential it will be higher...its just lower because its a MM game, which are more ambitious and is therefore more likely to fail. SW:G is number 15 or so because its REALLY ambitious so it really likely to fail.
