Re: GameCube/Wii Players

Hey dudes, just popping in to let you know I'm back to working full time (or just about, anyway). Probably not going to be available for the regular, nightly games in the foreseeable future. I can't swing 11pm to 2am or later and still be productive the next day at my age. Those days are long gone, ...

...I was actually able to test the entire quest without disconnecting... O rly? But yeah, it was fun. Until we all got disconnected in the last room! Have to do it one mo 'ghen.

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Does damage dealt to Gael & Giel during form 2 count towards Flow's total HP? Offline maybe, if not online? I have been running a lot of him lately because I'm still doing beds runs for the stingy Zoas. And frankly, I find it hard to pass up the easy extra experience since he's so damned easy with F...

Re: [GC] Ep.2 Challenge Mode

Epic Chl-moad run was epic! Great games, guys! Ep. 1 is a lot of fun. While it was occasionally frustrating, the lows are not quite as despondent as those I experienced while we ran Ep. 2. I wonder if everyone who plays Ep. 2 challenge comes to point where they just want to quit? Probably their firs...

Re: [GC] Ep.2 Challenge Mode

Yeah, both me and KB chose a needle, and Ives got a J-cutter. I really want to put Hell on the Needle because I'm completely addicted to Megid now. Funny enough, only a month ago, I thought that Hell/Megid were dumb and I never used either of them. Then Kayak gave me a 40% Hit Hell Laser that droppe...

Re: Might take a break from PSO for a while...

Hey, bumping this topic because I came across some information which is somewhat relevant regarding memory cards. I always bought 1st-party Official Nintendo brand memory cards because we all know that they're the best, right? Except they aren't, and it doesn't matter. Here's why: those official car...

Re: [GC] Ep.2 Challenge Mode

Yeah, I'm not going to lie. I had pretty much given up and was just going through the motions, as it were. After getting DC'ed on the first run, and then losing a scape to the early hallway biter's charge, I was just numb. The side battles with the squids were luckily of no consequence... It was jus...

Re: GC Keyboard

I don't have any experience with the Wii, and may be wrong about this. But I have read that you can use a usb keyboard on the Wii. If true, that would be a much better option than the datel powerboard for a couple of reasons. First, the datel keyboard is pretty flimsy, and second, the cord is too sh...

Hope that no one was on last night c-mode-ing, and sorry if I missed you... I stayed up from Thursday, and went to bed around 6pm est. Just got up--it's a little after 4 am est now. Figured I would reverse my schedule, since soon I will be required to be awake during the hours that the sun is out. B...

Re: GC Keyboard

I didn't play PSOX, but I was into Halo and Mech Assault back then. I agree with both of you, funny enough. It was friggin' awesome to coordinate with team mates on one hand, and really made the experience unique (at the time, anyway). But holy crap, the amount of shit talking that twelve year olds ...

Heh, well the origin of the handle is even more nerdy than that. The two trucks I drive the most in the month prior to my winter break are an Auto Car (Cummings M11; quite the beast) and a Road Boss 2 (an ancient Detroit; God I love to hate this truck, but I also won't let anyone else drive it eithe...

Re: GC Keyboard

For those looking for another (potentially) cheaper option to a keytroller for typing while playing PSO on the cube, I spotted an auction on eBay for a Datel Powerboard. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Datel-PowerBoard-ASCII-keyboard-controller-adapter-for-Nintendo-GameCube-/191815345317?hash=item2ca915e4a5...

Re: [GC] Ep.2 Challenge Mode

Good game last night. The Gol Dragon fight was cutting it close! Ives kind of saved us on that one by relying on Resta himself and dropping all of his mates and scapes. That damned Freeze though. Whew! And too many close calls due to the shitty camera angle, not being able to see the floor to pick u...

Re: Hunts & Findings

I still have to set up some way to upload pics, which will likely not happen (anytime soon, anyway). During various Redria Seabed Upper runs for MKB, ANO, and AURA, I found the following: 30% Hit Hell Rifle - not as nice as the 40% Hit Hell Rifle that Kayak gave me, but good enough for the RAmarl I ...

Re: [GC] The Twisted Towers

Dude! Seriously? I swear I tried that before but got blocked out by the Meri's. I guess I wasn't fast enough. Herp derp. But anyway, that makes a lot of sense considering I've used the same strat elsewhere in this very quest, choosing to deal with a lone Merikle instead of a biter or a couple Gi Gue...

Re: [GC] The Twisted Towers

I managed to get past this point with RAct using FS, as per Doc's suggestion, but it wasn't pretty. I only lost one scape in the process, when the left Meri rushed upon defrost and boxed me into the doorway. The whole order felt more like luck than strategy. I can definitely snipe while dancing arou...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Yeah, after running Towers for days on end now, I have found many level 29 techs, including F, Z, B, GF, GB, RZ, another GF, and various support techs @ both 29 & 30 (but they drop pretty much everywhere anyway). That is definitely enough of a spread to confirm that the pattern is the same as Ruins ...
