Re: GTA vice city - 12/24/02 03:18 AM

Here's my opinion of the game:
It kicks complete ass, but if you have GTA 3 then it isn't worth the money right now unless you have nothing else to spend it on and love GTA 3.

The downside to me is the setting.

The addition of bikes, diving, and the new cars and weapons and shit is great. The steel knuckles kick ass, running down the street just hitting people never got old.

I played the game for 6 hours straight then my friends woke up and made me stop :\

Edit: grammar and length

Re: GTA vice city - 12/24/02 04:40 AM

I'm playing Hitman 2 right now, and I'd say it's the best game I've ever played so far. I usually play FPS games or RPGs, but this is way different. It's first person, but it's more finesse and thinking, I guess you could say. Anyway, I'm a decent gamer and usually beat games really quickly. It took me three days to figure out how to beat the first level of Hitman 2, and that was working on it for 2 hours each day. Yeah, so you guys might think I just suck at games, but like I said, I'm pretty decent. A game that takes me three days to beat the first level scores really high in my books, cause it means I'll get to play it for more than a week. Might wanna check it out, I think it r0x0rz.

Re: GTA vice city - 12/24/02 11:48 AM

Your friend is either a robot or cheating.

Me and my friends rented Hitman 2, we got to level 4 when i left. It took so fucking long. Really, each mission is only like a 5 minute mission, but we spent maybe 2 hours on each one figuring out how to do it.

What made the game worth playing- Running in a room with the Ballers and sending everyone flying, then dragging the bodies down the stairs.

I get pissed when i'm playing H2, if I have the 9mm I fuckin unload on the guy, you can see his body slide a little while I spend a clip and say "Motherfucker trying to shoot me fuck off." Then move on. Fun times, fun times.

Re: GTA vice city - 12/25/02 01:38 PM

In Hitman 2- you play a hitman known as Agent 47. His weapon of choice-the "Ballers," two powerful motherfuckers. It is like Metal Gear Solid except it rules, it is fun, the story doesn't smother you, and i don't hate it.

Nagachaak- Go play gamecube you lamer.

Re: GTA vice city - 12/25/02 07:44 PM

shut ur hole looser. all hail pc!!!
hitman sux0r and always will.

and it's not like metal gear witch is a good game an hitman's not!!!

Cold Sunn- go play pc you lamer
Posted by: Cold Sunn

Re: GTA vice city - 12/26/02 12:33 AM

Metal Gear Solid - i can understand why some people would like it, because some people can accept major flaws in the way the game works.

Also, why would you say hail pc then "go play pc you lamer"? The reason I said Go play gamecube is because the gamecube is considered the crappiest of the top 3 consoles. I prefer pc to console, but some games are just console games and should stay that way.

You obviously just dislike things that are awesome.

Re: GTA vice city - 12/26/02 02:23 PM

In Hitman you often got 2 choices, either you play the fun part and sneak and kill the enemies silently and tactical or you can just run and waste em all(not in every lvl perhaps) it's up 2 u=)

Re: GTA vice city - 12/26/02 09:05 PM

lol.

Forgetting about the games on the systems, we should compare....

XBOX has a built in 8 gig harddrive. You can save games on it, save pieces of a game to decrease load times (something the PS2 has problems with), download new maps or game items, and alot of games allow you to play your own music from the harddrive during the game. I don't remember all the details, but I do remember that the XBOX has the most advanced hardware.

For the most part, the ps2 comes in second hardware wise. Then gamecube.

Also, from what I have heard, XBOX Live beats the other online console play....oh wait a minute...

Then if you do take the games into consideration:

XBOX: Halo, Blinx, Splinter Cell
PS2: GTA 3/Vice City, Metal Gear Solid: something, Hitman 2
Gamecube: Metroid Prime(the only game worth buying on gamecube imo)Those mario games, Smash Bros, there are probably others...

I say Blinx because it is a platform jumper, your mario type game. Basicly, to me it seems like XBOX is the way to go.

That might be biased, so someone else post another link from somewhere else.

Actually i had no idea that button was there...lol

Re: GTA vice city - 12/27/02 05:19 AM

Although I do think XBOX is the better system (and you're right, taste in games and opinion really like trying to rationalize what band is better) i thought that was funny too. Maddox is the funniest guy on the internet that I know of.

lol CN- you know that little paper and pencil icon is the "Edit Post" button right?

We are off topic.....GO GTA VC!!!

well more ike just GTA3, why is it that out of all games in the world its the laggiest of all, for X-mas i got a graphics card not the best but it will hold while i get money for a better one, i got a Geforce4 mx420 64meg, like I said for now, but it looks better sure, it lags way less but sometimes it lags, and i hate it out of all games!! sigh* but i mean i saw a great improvement. but id wish it was good like all the other ones, oh and does anyone have news on Vice Citys PC Release, rumors say its spring 2003 :-\

Hopefully im not being benlty here and not making sense.. its 2:39 and im tired, aah my friend is coming at 8 am!, adios.

Re: GTA vice city - 12/27/02 02:44 PM

I got you all beat system wise. I bust out the super nintendo! yeah! lol, my little bro has a ps2 but he doens't live with me, so I just play the sp all the time. And GTA Vice City is fun to play, but I'm not really into the time it's set in.
Posted by: Cold Sunn

Re: GTA vice city - 12/27/02 09:57 PM

The setting is what I hate most, but really I can get past it. I kind of forgot about it. Then the music comes on.

I wish that when you saved a game, it saved your options with it. Because I hate having to either a) go to the options>audio menu and turn the music all the way down, or b) flip through the radio til it is off every time i get in a car or something.

The Tec-9 is awesome, you can run around while locked on a guy and shoot him. Getting a tec-9, then killing a cop at an intersection is a good way to start the fun. After you run out of Tec-9 bullets I suggest using the cop's handgun because you can also run around with it. I heard your endurance goes up as you progress, i don't know about it though. If you tap X alot you can run pretty fast, and it is easy to escape the cops even if they are in cars, just don't get run over. If you run out of ammo, run around near their cars and hit them alot for their guns. Or steal a car and drive off til you can get a gun.

That is just something I like doing, I don't own the game so I just screw around when I play it.

Re: GTA vice city - 01/01/03 08:10 PM

GTA Vice City for PC will kick some serious ass. As for hitman 2, another really c00 game. Like what was said of just having fun and blasting everyone, or silent gameplay... Tiz tru. What I am curious about is what is next for the GTA series? Now the question is compare GTA 3 to Vice City... Is one better or are they equal? :+)

Re: GTA vice city - 01/01/03 10:55 PM

Re: GTA vice city - 01/01/03 11:07 PM

well if u ask me, i think gta is WAY over rated
Everyone that i talk to that has p2 i ask then What games u have ??
First game they name is GTA

Without GTA p2 is USLESS

Look at Xbox it has more funner games
Posted by: Cold Sunn

Re: GTA vice city - 01/02/03 12:22 AM

It is the same with Halo and Splinter Cell on XBOX. I like all three games.

I think the next GTA should be in the future, not too far, just like 60 years. I think there should be a few secret cars that hover and go really fast but can't take much damage. No lasers, none of that gay movie future stuff. Just like a dark grungy future. Have things like streets 2 stories higher than the streets on the ground, and over population and all the cars that came out within the past year.

GTA3 was present, Vice City was past, next will be either the future or another country (anyone remember that one set in britain?).

I just hope they add more features and stuff.

But it is really annoying when people say that VC is just like GTA3. First off, it isn't just like it. Second, it isn't supposed to be some huge improvement or something. Those people are idiots.

GTA3 was fun for alot of reasons, so they kept the core game and gave you new things to do in a new setting.

Re: GTA vice city - 01/02/03 01:00 AM

well i dont know = ) Xbox is more then just Splinter Cell and Halo
Personally i hate Halo, Its gay, Killing little Green men = (
Wait till Halo 2, It would be way Better
Anyways Splinter Cell is a great game, Its like Metal Gear Solid is the same thing, But Splinter cell has better Graphics and for Fun

I also agree Splinter Cell is what is hyped out 2 be, Got the highest gaming score with a 9.6, Halo i agree with u, Its way to over rated

I think that Halo is OVER rated and that Unreal Championship is under rated

Re: GTA vice city - 01/04/03 07:02 PM

Could someone explain how Halo is overrated?

Yes, the AI i think was overrated. I expected alot more, but it was still better than most console AI.

Re: GTA vice city - 01/04/03 11:28 PM

But honestly killing little green man isnt fun for me

Re: GTA vice city - 01/05/03 12:12 AM

anyone else get the feeling that xbox may go the way of dreamcast?
Posted by: Cold Sunn

Re: GTA vice city - 01/05/03 12:52 AM

Ice- you didn't give any reasons why Halo is overrated. Personal preference doesn't count.

CN- no. Sega can make games but since the Sega Genesis they have been pulling hardware out of their ass. XBOX's hardware specs clearly show it is a better system. The games of course decide what system is worth a buy. Microsoft has plenty of money to put into getting XBOX on top, not to mention all the contracts game companies signed.

All the usual complaints about the XBOX are just stupid. "It's too big, it weighs more than my sister, the controller is so big I can't swallow it, it has a built in harddrive so I don't have to use those nifty memory cards." And it keeps going.

They made a smart move discontinuing the Dreamcast. They couldn't afford to keep it up because not enough people were buying it, so they stick with what they do best- games.

Do I think the XBOX will go the way of the dreamcast? No. I had a sure feeling that dreamcast would fail and it did, but I have the opposite feeling about the XBOX.

Re: GTA vice city - 01/05/03 01:14 AM

im not gonna get into a arguement about the xbox, but if you want a system like the xbox just go the extra step and get a gaming PC same difference except for a few games that never come to PC...i really just dont like the xbox's games and i've also heard some things about the companies they signed on with, and many japanese developers that pulled out...that may just be a rumor i heard i dont really have a strong opinion on the matter

Re: GTA vice city - 01/05/03 01:28 AM

Personaly I think it is, But Graphics look cool sorta looks fun, Might give it a try

Re: GTA vice city - 01/05/03 08:21 PM

LOL. There is no right or wrong answer. You can love Age of Mythology and I can hate it, is it exactly overrated or is it that I THINK it is. What ever the majority of the public thinks is what sets the rating, standards about that game... Yet to you personally it sux! (Age of Mythology is c00 just not my type). See the sides here. Anyway now now kids, play nicely. So that can apply to GTA:VC, Splinter Cell, etc. But to finish this all consoles suck, hail the best... The computer! :+)

Re: GTA vice city - 01/05/03 09:11 PM

Yeah I told my friend sam I want a new computer more than an XBOX, he thought I was crazy but that's because he isn't a nerd.

Really, I do prefer computer over consoles. But I prefer XBOX over the other consoles. The XBOX itself is not overrated. Bent- j00r a newb.

We should probably stop posting this nonsense and close this topic. or go back to the topic...if only we knew what it was.

GudLars, try your isp's homepage for gaming servers, for example my isp is iprimus (www.iprimus.com.au) and they have a gaming section with servers, and if that doesn't work try google.com
