If it tastes like The old Pitch black, I'm definatly going to get a case.  I Loved the sour/grape taste, and was upset when it got taken off.

Though, May rinse out a bottle and keep it just for the label.

That's a No-Go for me.  I'm still catching up bills, and that would be more than my buddget allowed at the moment.

Sorry I can't make it guys.

Thread Archives / The Darkness - X-Box 360 Review (some spoilers)
« on: August 15, 2007, 09:28:39 am »
The Darkness

A Few weeks ago I happened into a GameStop and was prepared to purchase a new Videogame.  I haven’t been in the videogame scene much due to real life issues, but I thought I’d ask a few of the workers there for their assistance.  All three of them recommended “The Darkness”.  This Game was developed by 2K and Starbreeze, in case you don’t recognize their names they are the developers of “Chronicles of Riddick”

     First off I would like to say that this game is one ♥♥♥♥♥ of a ride.  This is not for children, or the weak of heart.  This story was well written, well developed and well though out.  It reminds me a lot of the Old “Alice” PC game.  If you’ve played it, you know what I’m talking about.  This game also is completely beautiful.  The character models and movements are very accurate.  Though I feel that there is a little more "glitchiness" to the game than I would’ve liked, overall I thought it was a great game.  So now time to break it down a little more:

1)   Game play.  In my opinion game play, and playability is the main focus of why I play videogames, and this one completely fulfills both to an almost perfect degree.  With a good mix of Action, and story you never get completely bored with walking around the “mid-levels” that is the train station.  Lots of side quests and dialogue keep the mind as well as the fingers very busy.  During the more action oriented sequences the developers know how to skate that fine line between first-person Slaughter fest, and Tricky Ninja-like assassination.  With the Darkness powers, you can almost go through the game without ever wielding a weapon, and if you prefer to go around wasting your foes with shotguns, and Dual-wielding pistols, that works just as well.  The control layout is very well rounded, with the triggers acting as the shooting buttons when weapons are drawn, and the bumpers acting to enable the darkness powers.  These powers are very easy to use, and learn, through their simplistic nature, but their multiple sue functionality.  Overall One of the best parts to this game

2)   Graphics/Cinematic.  A lot of recent game developers recently have taken to turning cinematic into a time waster in my opinion.  They short cut the cut-scenes by using real game graphics, in the hopes that the gamers’ imagination will hold out just long enough to get the gamer back into the action.  The Darkness, take on a completely different approach.  Not ONCE did I ever see a loading screen, why?  Well when levels were loading the game would play a cinematic to help us delve deeper into the life story of Jackie, and his acquaintances.  As the story progresses Jacke's becomes less and less a possessed madman, and more of a survivalist doing what he can to not be consumed by the evil that he has surrounded himself with.  If I give you one tip for this game ladies and gentleman it is, pay attention to the cinematic.  Now, as for the game graphics, they are astounding.  From the amazing landscapes, to the facial and body languages it was awesome.  I often found myself spending 30-45 minutes just watching the two dueling dancers in the subway.  When the game takes on a darker aspect as you delve into Jackie’s past, the game just pulls you in even further.  Now my only problems with the cinematics in this game were the amount of clipping bugs I ran into.  On more than a few occasions I found myself struggling to move, and maneuver myself into and out of places that should be easy, and I lost nearly a dozen hearts due to bodies flying through walls.  But overall still very well done in my opinion.

3)   Extras.  This game did extras in a way in which I love.  Littered throughout the game are notes, phone numbers to be exact, each one of them giving you a different funny/sad/realistic phone message when called from a pay phone, as well as letters that you can mail through mailboxes.  From what I saw just by playing the game there are near 200 extras that can be unlocked.  So have fun finding them all.

4)   –SPOILER ALERT--  Last but not least of all Darkness powers.  This was one of the best elements of the game.  They range from simple melee attacks, to the summoning of Demons to do your dirty work for you.  These powers are very simple to use on the control pad.  One of the key elements to gaining your new Darkness powers is the consumption of hearts.  Not just any hearts, but hearts of bad men.  The more evil the more darkness power you gain.  Also as a side note on the extras, there are different clothing options that you’ll find for your little spawnlings around the game.  They love to dress up and do nasty things with some nasty items, like a katana, a jack-hammer, and even a hand-saw.  Can we say big mess?

Overall I had a huge amount of fun with this game.  If you’re like me and you like to get achievements, then some of them will only be gained through multi-player.  Since I didn’t have internet at my house or an X-box Live account I couldn’t test out the multi-player aspect of the game but I’ve heard some good things about it.  So, If you’re in the mood for some fast action, good storyline, and tons of extras to find, this game is defiantly something you should check out.

Until next time Kiddies.

Site Improvements & News / Re: OKgamers.com: the Goal
« on: August 01, 2007, 01:39:52 pm »
This is my submission for a re-design/Edit.



What is OKgamers.com’s goal?

We will improve the quality and quantity of gaming tournaments around the state of Oklahoma by providing a complete resource where all people can easily join, interact, and contribute to their community

We plan on doing this by three means the First and foremost is: 

Providing a web site to bring local gamers together completely – so everyone know what’s going on in our state. 

What this means for local players: is a place to go and find events, post about their tournaments, and look for local competition.

To achieve our goal we have made one website, which is location based not game based.  We want this website to be the “Go-to and End-all” for answers to questions like; “What is there to do this weekend?”, “I’m itching for some real competition where can I find it?” and “Did I hear someone mention a tournament this weekend?”

We want all of our local players to be in the know, and not miss things!  But we cannot do all of this alone, we need your support.  We are asking all of you who love what it is we are doing to spread the word.  We want everyone to know that they can use OKgamers.com as the place to post up their events, look up events, register for those events, and help spread the word about them.  There isn’t anything like this in Oklahoma but we know that there has been a public outcry for it for years. For those of you who wish to support us, do so by TELLING your friends, posting about it on your blogs, sharing the OKgamers.com flyers, and volunteering to be on the OKGamers.com staff.

Another way we are helping to enlarge the Oklahoma gaming community is by attending regional and national Tournaments.  This means that we are sponsoring local Oklahoma players to attend and compete in a much larger level than they would normally have an opportunity to within Oklahoma.  But to do all of this we need the help and support of everyone out there.

Our second means of accomplishing out goal is:

By supplying a website for all businesses within the Oklahoma area to advertise and promote events, and tournaments.

What this means for businesses is a place to reach customers and let them know about events, tournaments and promotions, not only on a local level, but also a State level.

With your support you will be able to get the word out to a growing community of active LOCAL gamers that wouldn’t have previously known about your events.  By doing this you encourage all businesses within the Gaming communities to do the same, creating more use of the site, and more reason for users to come looking for details - a winning situation for everyone.  Let's CENTRALIZE our info, and no longer have hidden pockets of events, with low turn out.  One of our goals, just like yours is to get as many people at these events as possible.  So Let us know what's going on, you are as much a part of this community as the Players are.

Our Last means of accomplishing this goal is:

We are Attracting Volunteers to help with raising the awareness of the website throughout the State.

When it comes to events, we need to ‘prime the pump’ so to speak.  If we don’t know what’s going on neither do the readers of the website.  We need people like YOU to help make the site as best as possible and it doesn’t take but 5 minutes out of your day to post on the website about a tournament you’ve heard about.  If you can’t get on the website, have a friend do it, head down to the local library to use their computer for 5 minutes, as your grandpa if you dial up on his 28.8Kbps modem and log on.

OKgamers.com is a tournament and event website for ALL of Oklahoma; however, if no events are known to be going on, and no tournaments posted – no one will use the site.  So our local Tulsa staff throws a monthly event, and answers the request of any business or event that asks for help - to get the ball rolling.  We don’t just want to be a place to post about events, our staff is comprised of talented and determined individuals to help your events and Tournaments become a complete success.  We want people talking about your event around the state until it comes around again, whether it is a month or a year.

As a result?  We throw our own ‘monthly tournament series’ we started, as well as other ventures we are asked to help with from local businesses. If you are the type of person who would love to become an OKGamers.com staff member to help accomplish our goal, then click “Here”.  We’d be more than happy to accept any help you’d be willing to offer.

Our “Monthly’s” – are the solution of ‘priming the pump’, we throw them just to get the word out about OKgamers.com – and get people using the site.  However, it’s a big undertaking at times, and we need Staff members to help with that.  Also what about those that want to throw tournaments and just don’t know how, need the manpower to make it happen, the technical or guidance to run a successful tournament?  They need not worry anymore, because Our Staff is more than willing to help out.  Both throwing a tournament, and helping to organize tournaments falls under our goals: to improve, network, and have a reason to network.

And that’s it.  Seriously – it’s as simple as – we want to make a difference.  We do not want to miss out on events!  We want to see this succeed and improve the Oklahoma gaming community.

But this all depends on the gamers like you.  The fact you’re even reading this – gives us hope…

And now you know.  What will you do with this knowledge?

OKgamers.com is not a company, we are a Community.  There are no product or service revenues coming in to market it.  The only way this will get out at the moment is by gamers telling other gamers about our site, store owners and gamers throwing events, and posting about them.

     I think that advertising in videogames is an OK Idea, aws long as it's regulated.  If this were to truly start becoming a hassle, I'd start writing to my congressman telling them, "This needs to get under control!"  Besides that, I think it's kind of neat when I see real advertising in videogames, gives them more of a real feel.  Yet spoofed Advertising is definatly more entertaining.  I.E. Duke Nukem 3d
