Tracking the Evolution of Michael Lenoch throughout the 1up.com Message Boards

This archive consists of everything I have contributed to the 1up.com Message Boards is intended to highlight the point at which I claimed I was to be a writer, when I became conscious of grammar, spelling, punctuation, slang, my sanity, my enthusiasm, and lack thereof, and when I began to form a sophisticated opinion. Given the fact that the "Lithium", or old Message Boards of 1up are being closed, I thought what other occurence could better spark such arduous work than this. Keep in mind quite a few of these responses I post are out of context, and anything written by either myself or anyone else has not been altered in any way. From the time where all I would talk about would be Me & My Katamari and Animal Crossing: Wild World to Battlefield 1942 to Final Fantasy XII, for the most part, everything's covered. It was a time where the Gaming Industry wasn't nearly as fast-paced, and I didn't exactly crave information or podcasts like I may today.

Throughout these 3 years, I've done quite a bit of learning, and maturing. Hopefully this will provide an insightful glimpse at how the 1up message boards have literally changed my life. I am incredibly grateful for the community and my opportunity to converse and learn with them during these years. Thank you all, und ohne weitere Umstände.

Why do PSP owners neglect DS games and Vice-Versa (from what I've heard from all of my friends)
I am a DS owner that is thinking of Importing a White PSP (from ebay even though there is no need to,the white looks way cooler) When my soon to be favorite PSP title: Me & My Katamari arrives, I just have to see how it is!
or I would totally dig if there was a Katamari game on the DS!

Re: Me Playing the Persuit Force Demo - Game's got potential!
WHY ARE PEOPLE SOOO BAD AT PSP racing titles!!!!!!!!!(always crashing into thiungs!) I don't have a PSP but my friend does and until I see a person that is good besides him I will stop stereo typing PSP players

Re: Why make crappy FPS's or third person shooters for the PSP, that have to comprimise controls...
Yeah! my friend told me that Star Wars BF2 on PSP's controls were taken out because of the lack of the second analog stick

Do you like Katamari Enough to......
. get the PSP one

. Re: Why make crappy FPS's or third person shooters for the PSP, that have to comprimise controls......
well I have 2 friends who's favorite game is coded arms! and thay talk about it at school at least onece-a-week!

Re: Do you like Katamari Enough to...........
I just got it and it's like all the fansof the original are asking you to do stuff

I'n Dragon Quest VIII..........................
How do I get the little kids to move from Jessica's Bedroom?

I just got the FFXII Demo and...................
can anyone beat the beach level(not the dungeon)

Re: Why do PSP owners neglect DS games and Vice-Versa (from what I've heard from all of my friends)
you got that right! whenever I talk about ds my friends' expectations are very, very low and he knows how to do everything with his PSP, or The Sony media manager and he expects a lot more from gamming devices now that he knows how to do download/upload media to his PSP
yeah I always see you on the ds forums not here, I was thinking of getting a PSP because Katamari is coming to it but if ds gets it you can forget I ever said the word 'PSP'!

Re: How many psp fans own a ds too?
I have a DS and AC:WW is a daily-fix in its self, and I couldn't see myself fit a PSP in my pocket, and that screen, oh that beatiful screen that would totally get messed up because DS closes and PSP doesn't.
I even bring my red nintendo ds to school every day because AC:WW is so daily!

Re: MK:DS online stinks!
wait!, they should get a loss or they do?

Re: Whose selling their fat Ds for a Ds lite?
I don't think you should call it fat........It knows where you live ......well actually the top mostly sticks out.

Re: New Tenchu DS screens

Does anyone have a White PSP?
And does it dirtier?

Re: my psp will only read disks when its on low battery....
nope! that sucks fer ya, I think PSP is too complicated, so I have a Red Nintendo DS!!!

Do you bring your DS and/or PSP to work/school?
I bring my red nintendo DS

I beat the FFXII Demo Twice!
The beach level, how do you beat the dungeon level though?

Re: Is the DS compatible with the GBA Gameshark?
I HATE gameshark, why buy games if you cheat!?!?!
Re: Do you bring your DS and/or PSP to work/school?
I always was thinking of doing that when I become a writter, editor, Jornalist for a gaming website.


And do any of your clients see your PSP?

do any of your clients see you playing games?

CAn a japanese PSP play U.S. Movies?
And can it be linked to a computer of the United States?

Re: Does anyone have a White PSP?
yeah I know that you have to import them

Re: Do you bring your PSP and/or DS to work/school?
WHAT?! from talking loud @ them? Like yelling "Oh my gosh!!!".

Any thought among the Naruto Game?
well I can't remember what it's call though

Re: best game for Girls?
Maybe........ Chibi-Robo, but from what I've played, I can't say that it's good, because I put my gamecube away, and had to play on my sister's and that wasn't enough time to play so I guess, If a friend has it, ask if you can borrow it.


(I put my gamecube away because the next generation of systems came out, but I left my PS2 out because I just got Burnout: Revenge, We Love Katamari, and Chibi-Robo, but my gamecube is put away.)

Re: Do you bring your DS and/or PSP to work/school?
Well if your not into multi-player DS games at least get Animal Crossing: Wild World, Only the best Nintendo DS game to date.
I always bring My DS with AC:WW loaded into the game slot, I play it on the way home though, somtimes on the way to school, if I have time.

Re: CAn a japanese PSP play U.S. Movies?
Wow, Wow very cool! I didn't even know that!

I hope!
That Me & My Katamari, my soon to be favorite PSP title. I hope Namco doesn't make me buy a $250.00 PSP just to play Katamari anywhere. I want them to bring it to the DS and that the PSP is so delicate, more that 1/2 of my friends' PSPs have broken. One of which just sent it back because he had a warranty to best buy. And he returned it because his screen was scratched, he sent it in, they sent him a new one, without accesories. Worthless, completley, babyish, Oh Yeah!, but awesome.

On my game collection it says that,
Advance Wars: Black Hole Rising is $49.00

Re: "Error in Backup Memory" on FFTA
Play on your DS, micro, GBA 1 , or the gamecube thing, or I bought all of those.

I hope that I get a,

Re: I hope that I get a,
well I don't like the metroid first hunt controls one bit because it is not senseitive enough, so you end up having to lift your stylus up and slide it up just to look up. Do you know what I'm saying?

and for katamari they could have face buttons+d-pad, like the controls of the PSP, or maybe improved pac-n'-roll controls, if possible

Can web browsing w/ your PSP damage it?
at least, that's what my friend said

Re: New Metroid Prime Hands On!
i dislike; dispise; HATE all metroid games, sorry fanboys; fangirls, the games are just so wierd, don't make sense, and I'm bad at them, but good at halo 2, well isn't everyone? and i don't like it when the thing looks like a puss attacks your screen

Re: I'n Dragon Quest VIII..........................
OH yeah!, I got it last week because of X-play's review, giving it a 5 out of 5.

Re: I beat the FFXII Demo Twice!
WHAT!?!?!? NO!!!! I thought this was one of the best RPG's I've played in a long time, it reminds me of Pokemon, because it is such a fun RPG, I HOPE this is multi-player, well I wouldn't know because this is the second FF I've EVER played, since crystal chronicles. There is no way I won't buy this, unless for some strange reason it will be rated M. But I will still try to negotiate with my dad like I did for Halo 2, I said that all of the stuff in it was fake, like the aliens, and the language wasn't bad AT ALL! I don't think that Halo 2 should be rated M, but whatever, I still got it.
Oh and now, I beat both of the levels, the beach 3 times, and the shrine/temple/dungeon once.
If that game came out on the PSP I would definatley buy a PSP, but I'm stickin' to AC:WW for DS.

Re: I hope that I get a
Instead of crappy games like, the one I bought,(NFSU2 for DS) because I thought it would be like the PSP's NFSURivals. And OH BOY was I wrong that game sucks ass TIMES TEN. I kept watching the trailer of the PSP game, and kept thinking that was going to be how the DS one was, but back then, I haven't seen a bad DS title so I was very optimistic. I think nintendo and some other companies truly know how to make games fit to the DS, that game would have been fun if it was on GBA, probably amazing to see those graphics and not fun though.

Re: I hope!
Well if I were to get a PSP, I don't think so, a loyal nintendo fanboy, I am.

Re: Sunday!Sunday!Sunday!
well it's much better because people won't cheat.

There's a show I just watched on [Adult Swim] and I don't know what it's called.(details inside)
It had a group called Holy, there was a man who had like a beast-like are that was Red and Yellow, and that is about all I can give you, because I don't really follow that anime, I always watch: Bobobbobobbobo, IGPX: my favorite, and The Boondocks


Re: Toonami does Miyazaki
I saw Spirited Away, on the regular Cartoon Network, and it seems as though it should be on the PSP. An it was really moving, even to my 7-year old sister.

Re: There's a show I just watched on [Adult Swim] and I don't know what it's called.(details inside)
Yeah! That's it! I just had seen an episode that had a guy who was really scared and had a big robot guy to support him, and the rebellious guy with red hair and the transforming arm had killed/broke the Large robot (that seems like it's from Gundam).
But honestly what's wrong with that show to you, I think it's fine?

If FFXII also came out on PSP that would make me buy one
And if Katamari is awesome, I'll find out from my sister though.

Re: My PSP broke!!!!!!!
If you are saying that DS's feature of a touch screen is going obsolete, you've got to be kidding me



I've got a Red Nintendo DS with Animal Crossing

Re: DS Demo Station, I saw news about this in NP, has anyone seen one yet?
Well what if you go to gamestop and just HAPPEN to bring along your DS, If I see one I'm going to download Brain Age, it is that Japanese game that you hold your DS to this side Depending on if you're right handed or left. Sounds nerdy but my dad would highly approve me playing that game over AC:WW but I would want to get the weeds out of my town every day, it gets boaring, but fin at times.

Re: How do you exchange data between memory sticks?
Yeah my friend told me that your PSP holds the data and you just put the other memory card in, I don't have a PSP so I wouldn't completley know.

Re: My sister wants a PSP, is going to get: Me & My Katamari and Hot Shots golf.
I'm only 13, so I can't get GTA:LCS, I already have NFSMW on XBOX and I didn't like it so much, so now I've gone back to Gran Turismo 4.
And my friend from school says that you have to stop every time you want to look to the side, in SW:BF2, and If I were to get a PSP, which I don't think I will because I am already occupied by my DS, I would get Me & My Katamari.



Main Reasons why I think I will not get those games, or a PSP: (bottom-line reasons)
I'm only 13, so I can't get GTA:LCS
I already have NFSMW on XBOX and I didn't like it so much
you have to stop every time you want to look to the side, in SW:BF2

Well I'm not buying this becuase I can't fit anymore in my case. (my case can fit 8)
When I was watching my sister play the game it sounded like a Mario Party game.
It didn't make sense, the graphics looked like kirby game

Why did it say that Nintendo DS can have at least 16 players?
And now it seems like the limit is 8 except Pictochat, but I only did 16 player pictochat once, on a school field trip. Now that WAS fun!
ON DS MULTIPLAYER! you don't speak english?
They say that it CAN have up to 16 players, but no games have taken advantage of that, only 8, same goes for PSP
That makes sense............. I guess.

Re: racing racing racing
I don't know but i got back to playing GT4 for PS2 and now I'm better.
But no seriously look on IGN.com, Gamespot.com I don't know if it's bad I was going to buy that for my friend for his Birthday, but oh well, I don't have a PSP.
And the reason I'm here is because my sister is getting one, look at the thread I made here.

If it's true that PS3 won't support the PS2 memory card.......
I think when I get new games like Final Fantasy XII, I'll wait for the PS3 and put the memory on that instead of having to start over, like the Xbox 360, and just like the X360, the graphics might even look better

What anime is on PSP's UMD?
I already know Samuri Champloo, is there anymore, I don't have a PSP, and my sister's getting one so I would watch it on DVD.

She is getting a Japan, White PSP and if PANDA-Z is on that, Japanese, or not I have to buy her that.

Forget the ten commercials and the movie, what about 53 min. with two game saves?

Re: Gran Turismo 4 is good and all but...
I Totally Suck at this Game!

i'm serious.
after barely being able to keep my car on the road in every course i try in arcade mode since i don't have enough space on my card for GT mode and i can't afford a new card yet or afford to erase any of the data on my old one, I try out the test course. the one that's basically an oval that goes on forever. i guess i did pretty good, but then this ghost thingy that looked like my car kept passing me. it really sucked.

this game has a crapload of cars and some really good courses and I can see they put a lot of work into this game. they were even able to throw in 1080i which i really appreciate.

I thought it was R= Jump. Anyway, get AC:WW, I think that's the last DS game I ever get! But, if you get bored easily, and that's probably why you have a DS, then you should get Metroid.

Does just about everyone here read/subscribe to Shonen Jump's magazine?
I have last months and my dad still didn't send the subscribe card in.

Can someone explain Evangelion for me?
(I wish Toonami was on every day though so I could always watch their animes) I just watched an episode of Evengelion today, and it doesn't make any sense, there is a bratty girl, and she hates everyone, gets in the robt, and tries to kill herself

Does anyone here like U2????
I think they are the best band EVER, if you are here don't say anything else is because that is your opinion and this thread is people with an opinion of U2.

I just went to the Museum of Science & Industry, today, and Game On had an NES game called...
Street Gangs, that was so much fun! I went to the Game On before, but now it's Game On 2.0, oooooooo who cares really, the reason I went a second time is because on the first time, we had to leave, and now this time I got to see all of the stuff, the pokemon collection was AWESOME!, I finally got to see all of the handhelds, new and old (which doesn't really matter because my sister has a white psp, I have a red DS, a gba color, advance, sp, micro, my other sister has a pink ds, you get the picture.) All of the people were hogging DDR and Eyetoy, which doiesn't matter either because my sister has DDR, but still, I diddn't get to show off my mad DDR skills. Then, I saw Initial D! On sega genisis, and it was an import, so the graphics were bad but it was fun.



So I'll just cut to the chase, Have any of you been to Game On, or Game On 2.0?(please tell me your experiences if have been to Game On)
And do you think that Street Gangs if more fun than a majority of games out today?

Re: hey, you guys need to get the cast from g4tv.com to help out the show

When I was watching a Gundam show, (I forget which one) and why did the Gundams have wings??? I thought they had jetpacks, and they are in space-no gravity in space, everyone knows that!
I think in like the Federation Gundams there are to many civilians/worthless filler people, instead like G Gundam, most of the people repair the Gundams, train the pilots, or the pilots father/mother. (& the people in G Gundam have purposes.)
Re: Highest quality anime you have seen or know of?
I would have to say IGPX, mostly because it is my favorite animie ever and that I personally think that it has perfect coloring.........
FOR SURE: you guys are going to disagree because no one here likes IGPX besides 'Bangzoomcd' and I.

Re: What is your position on Old Country Buffet?
My school went on a field trip, and had a low-cost meal because my school is catholic and they hate me, anyway, everyone fooled around, got food that they didn't eat, and we have this one fat teacher, and she liked it, and I think that fat people like it...............
What languages do you speak?
I'm learning German (Deutsch) but I'm not in a class, (this is pretty hard to explain my current status though, so I won't explain it all to bore you) but I will be in a class, and that is all I will say..


(Short & sweet I guess)

I have figured out Nintendo!
Koopa, in Polish means, Poo, so Koopa King, or Bowser is Mario's enemy, and Mario is a plumber, and I guess.. He FIGHTS POO!

And since I am learning German (Deutsch), I've figured out that Wario is supposed to be ein Deutschlander! (a German!)
Also, I got back into MKDS, and Wario is my favorite character, and when he wins he says 'JA!', or 'YES!'

Do you think I should submit my manga drawings to Shonen Jump?


AFTER: Battlefield 2142, do you think EA/Dice will make a WWII/BF1942 remake?
I've been really thinking a lot about this, and from watching Band of Brothers on the History Channel, once you think about it there is a lot missing, and there is big room for improvement, but Battlefield 1942 is a great game, except when you are play Single Player, the A.I. NEVER responds! And from my Call of Duty memories from playing with my friend (because I do not own the game) I remember he guns always having a distinct sound to them.

In conclusion: there is a lot missing, and a lot there, will EA/Dice improve on the WWII game?

________________________________________

NO! I love the 1942 format, on the HUD, I don't really like BFV's at all, and BF2's is okay, but BF1942's is the best, but the voices for the American's are SO FAKE, they sound like a rough touch-killing machine, but in reality all the soldiers were scared, Band of Brothers is so much realisctic, well, because it's easier than doing it on a PC..

But I have two more questions:

1.) In 2142, why is it '42?

2.) If there are 'SO MANY WWII shooters!' then name 10 made/released from 2003-2006, or 3 years

Band of Brothers—SCARY
I know, I know it is old, but I just opened my dad's DVDs (he said I could.) and wow!! near the end on the Ninth disc where they see the Jewish people, it is SCARY!! (maybe just for me) but WOW! I have it on pause still, because I'm scared to watch it, were you scared, and if you peak, or are learning German (like I am), could you understand the people when they sounded like that?

I watched it and it was SO good!! I hardly undersood the people, because I'm learning, IT WAS SO GOOD! (wieder) It wasn't that scary, but I don't know, (I guess my brain amped it up what it really was )

Do you think The Girl Gamers concept is being brought too far?
By that I mean almost sexist?

For me, it was Pokemon Coliseum, my school's Library had book mark for the game, I looked through magazines, and was possibly dreaming of it.

Especially today:

Today, I definitely felt undefined. (once again) While listening to classic, or my favorite podcasts from: EGM, theirs on 12/18/06, and 1up Yours' on 3/02/07. I feel as though no one cares what I say, and need to express myself because I feel like no one else listens to the podcasts besides me. Especially since most of the Ziff Davis employees ever reply to a personal message. And I need to act as though I'm alive, and my main mission in life is to get featured on a podcast, but now in a different fashion, a pssive fashion, where I don't try as hard to be on it (since not being on the internet for the last four weeks, mind you, Lent, I have probably developed a less-addictive quality in my life, to not use the internet when I get home, which is EXCELLENT, but I think I will start going and using the internet during the middle-week.
Extremely blog-styled, hey! It is in my blog, but is there anyone else who feels the same way? I just thought it might be interesting, and I wanted to express my curiousity.

How IGN doesn't come alive

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/827/827008p1.html


If you watch the video on the page, try to remember, or simply go back and watch the 96th episode of the 1up Show, and compare how Mark Macdonald made the way he thinks, and expresses himself apparent, as opposed to when (possibly) David Clayman lifelessly plays Rock Band, without uttering a word. That's the way I've felt IGN has been portraying themselves since I first visited their site; slick, efficient, and heavily acclimated with the "gets the job done" mentality. In their reviews, I've found it rather difficult to distinguish each employee's writing style.

Look at 1up, or even narrow it down to the current cast of 1up Yours: you have a blonde haired, seasoned Japanese enthusist, a British play-almost-anything player, a bearded reactionary-exclamatory game player, and a middle of the road, partly genre-hardcore/partially loves everything player. You can't exactly compile a crew that's even moreso distinguished than that; the problem that IGN is facing is that they don't allow their personalities to shine through.

In that video, it may have been intentional that the player's attitude didn't come through, as IGN has proved to strive for in all their media. But when you look at it from a perspective of a person who doesn't regularly visit IGN, you feel there aren't many updates, there isn't much content, and even to the extent where in 1up Yours, Garnett referenced an IGN article. 1up definitely makes you feel like they're human; they show their messiness around the office through the 1up show, they make excuses for technical problems, and they generally have phrases (on the podcasts) that make you laugh, and remember. If you also look at IGN's Wikipedia entry- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ign , it shows their massive staff, which may also drastically contribute to their unapparent personalities.


All in all, IGN is a very reliable website, that definitely will always have the latest article, but 1up is a very perceivable website, with great podcasts supporting it.

Re: Team Fortress 2, anyone else not feeling it?
I was initially disappointed with it, but I later gave it time to impress me, and it has. Though I think the main appeal to the game in the unusual comedy, the style to it, the wildly various classes, and the pace. I never exactly thought it was funny, and I still don't, regardless of comedy, I still find it to be fun. But If you're a Battlefield 2 player, I wouldn't be surprised if you're not enjoying Team Fortress 2. I played Battlefield 1942 and loved it, and can only imagine how much better BF2 is- (Too bad my PC can't run it).

I also posted this in the "Replayability" thread that was recently posted:


Battlefield 1942. Although I have most commonly mentioned Battlefield 1942 as one of my favorite games, and as a bridge to learning German, I haven't mentioned Battlefield 1942 as one of the most replayable games in existance. When contemplating my beloved Battlefield 1942 experiences, I am having doubts whether or not Team Fortress 2 will nearly captivate me as Battlefield 1942 did.

First of all, I'm beginning to feel I loved Battlefield 1942 so deeply for the reason that I had never played a PC-shooter before, and had never seen a game with such an expansive map, and so many opportunities for sniping spots, and other occurances based on the geography. The vehicles have also played an enormous role in creating a more enjoyable game, and have also heavily contributed to the refreshing gameplay. Now that I'm fairly acclimated, and experienced, I was expecting more out of a PC shooter that I spent $30 on Steam. From as far as I can see, there's not much to do; there's one map that I've seen so far, and a single game type.

Yes, the classes are fun, but with one map, it feels like the demo of Battlefield 1942 that got me into buying the full game. I know it was meant to be sold with three other games, and was meant as a feature in the package, it seems like it never was intended to be sold separately. And I know Valve will add new maps (if there is actually only one map), hopefully they are as varied as World War II. Along with that point, you can't exactly beat World War II; desert, plain, sea, meadows, rivers, snow, there's so much variety that it almost always is going to seem refreshing.

Re: If I plan to be a gaming writer/jouranalist, should I play more or fewer games?
In relation to Beige's "Gaming Literacy" thread that is long past by now, but still remains relevant, I grow curious whether I should try every genre possible, to determine whether or I would enjoy it, or should I remain reluctant and obstinate by my game selection, and only choose games I know I'll enjoy; which does have its benefits, as my love for gaming would vastly expand later in my life. So do I spoil myself with anything I can now, or should I be reserved in my preferences, and wait when I'm jaded, or desperate, and use that to get back into gaming later in my life?


-Never played:
-Castlevania
-Ninja Gaiden
-Devil may Cry
-Super Paper Mario- only for a few minutes
-DOA
-Any Metroid besides Fusion, and Prime 2
-Tekken
-Street Fighter- only for a few minutes
-Only FFXII and FFCC
-And many others

I wrote this during my leisure of my study hall, it describes the obscenities that I have faced early on in my High School Career- tell me what you think of it. (Note: I didn't check it, so it may be terrible)

Where is the earnestness from the 1950s?
My name is Michael Lenoch. I am 14 years old, currently attend ......... High School in Illinois, and experience a tremendous descomfort in the form of social attidutes, and what disrespectfulness I've witnessed in my school.

The first matter is the obnoxious yelling that constantly never fails to occur each day, the consistant urge of self-expression; where each student feels it is appropriate to casually swear in even the most minor of distress, whenever he or she feels necessary. The significantly noticable lack of earnestness, discipline, and courtesy each student has for one another is absolutely astonishing. Not to mention the discriminatory acts of criticism.

Why is each student so influenced as to carelessly toss these harmful words around each day? I've noticed that a very large majority of students are so compelled by what media figures present themselves as, to something desireable, to become more as such and such a figure from an envious perspective, to justify his or her feelings in what is considered more "mature." I only feel justification for writing this when I remember loosely throwing swears, naive of their meaning, with a strong sense of remorsefulness and disgust of what I said and what I meant by such harsh remarks.

I've always considered myself as a thinker, a ponderer if you will. As well as an analyst of what events I witness each day. Since swearing has a tendancy to be practiced on a daily basis, I choose not to swear, as I believe peoples' perception of such a philosphy compells them to follow that same virtue, to make their lives more thoughtful, and meaningful.

The Pledge of Alleigance; a sign of honor, a daily ritual, is one of many that is often disrespected in the interest to obtain, or sustain a positive self-conscious view from other students, cluttered with chatter, and lacking a respectable posture. It is very disparaging that such a sign of dedication, pride, and one man's dream is diminished in such a casual fashion, neglected, and rudely ignored for the purpose of "looking cool."

There only happen to be very few honest, reliable, and decent students I've seen out of this enormous student population of diversity. I'm not particularly electing myself King of Eloquence, Prime Minister of Properness, or anything pertaining to such high regard- but what i can say is that I dedicate each day of my life to learn in school, and while I'm here, I choose to do it with dignity, honor, and respect.

Right now, I am in study hall, sitting behind a girl, who I consider to be very reactionary- her sparks are lit once the slightest discomfort arises, as she immediately procedes to yell, and fuss, with no remorse, no matter who is there, oblivious to the standards set in the 19950s; from at least my perspective, I view it as a time accompanied by earnestness, genuine happiness, inginuity, kindness, and the birth date of many wise minds.

Each student seems or is conceived to be so vain in what he or she wears, how they speak, as well as how they treat one another. If they are so vain as to look his or her best each day, sit in a casually presentable, and fashionable pose, impressing each other, with a running mouth so disrespectful, not even their mother would kiss it. Speaking essentially how each student is defined based on knowledge, or how each student wishes to be interpreted. Now, as I like to consider myself very analytical in the daily happenings I witness, I have often pondered why it is true that every student's dialect is so infused with such a socially understandable baby-talk, solely for the purpose of self-expression.

Your dream podcast- What would it be like?
I'd particularly enjoy a three-hour Christmas episode, consisting of Shawn Elliot, Seanbaby, Luke Smith, and just let it soar with tangets.

A definite answer: Call of Duty 4. Call of Duty 4 is not only the most fun, but it has automatic guns and that counts for quite a bit.

Yes, I have Team Fortress 2- I'm probably even on the "1up Madhouse" club. It's just the hit detection that makes the game so much more enjoyable for me, and how forgiving it is. It may be that I'm so much better at Call of Duty 4, and my PC isn't very good, but when I'm sitting here, remembering my experiences as a whole, I have better memories of Call of Duty 4. I also have more things to complement about Call of Duty 4.

(Note: I play Call of Duty 4 on Xbox 360, which may play into my opinion)

Reading the comments here i think i can conclude that both are great games, but different. I have a bunch of friends i like to play online with so Team Fortress might be best so we can have more fun working together. I remember us playing BF2:Modern Combat together online and we barely spoke to each other since everyone seemed intent on doing their own thing. I can see a similar thing happening with COD4, though to a bit lesser extent. I did play the COD4 beta a few times and it was fun, but i'm leaning to TF2 right now...plus im more interested in The Orange Box single-player games than COD4 single-player.

________________________________________

I suppose it's a good choice if that's what you're looking for. I would think that Orange Box single player is significantly better than Call of Duty 4's. But in terms of Multiplayer, (which is what you asked by the way), my personal preference would lean to Call of Duty 4- (Which is my first Call of Duty game, which may, make me less exasperated of the feel of the game than others).

Are the members of GAF nerd mirrors of us?
I've visited GAF about 3 times in my life, and every single time has brought me to the thought of "Why do those members talk about the 1up and EGM employees so ravenously?" Is it because GAF was out before 1up.com? And the nerds are so reclusive that they don't want to leave their humble homeland, and actually talk with the 1up employees. I don't see why they talk about 1up- is it because it permits them to have a freedom to say whatever they will, without the consequence of being banned?

Another slang-induced way I can express myself is "Why won't they come out of the closet?"

What type of game appeals to you; story-driven, or competitive?
With competitiveness shrouding the majority of games lately, is an engaging story-driven experience more enjoyable, or do you favor blood-boiling experiences with friends and other online players?

A few key examples of chiefly story-driven experiences would be Half-Life 2, [various] Final Fantasy games, BioShock, and Mass Effect

As well as a few multiplayer-driven multiplayer experiences, such as Counter-Strike(s), Unreal Tournament(s), Call of Duty(s), Halo(s), and Virtua Fighter(s)

And as you can notice how most commonly competitive games are sequels, and iterations of the perfect multiplayer formula.

So which do you typically prefer?

Multiplayer provides me with a sense of comfort and familiarity from a day-to-day basis to ease stress and to immerse myself into a familiar fantasy setting.

Is Call of Duty 4's popularity due to the lack of deviance?
Typically, I've found shooters to have a sort of underlying probability/likelyhood/possibility/chance-based system employed that makes a few bullets ineffective, stray from the intended target or deviated. Whether the deviation of bullets is actually true or not, (and I wouldn't know because I've never shot an assualt rifle fully-automatic, just semi) I think the general public would expect every single bullet to fire correctly and true, and has been intregal to the game's tacit feel, and invariable possibility of the bullet hitting the target, no matter the distance. The only strange thing is that the accuracy is servely reduced when you're not looking through the sight... though that must have been a gameplay dicision for balance and justification to even have or use the sight in the game.

You've shot a rifle before, you should realize that looking down the sights is much more accurate than shooting from the shoulder. I'm not exactly sure what you mean deviance of bullets, are you talking about exterior forces that act on it after it leaves the barrel or are you talking about the things the shooter can do that would make a shot off target?

________________________________________
Yes I suppose, but if you guys actually played Call of Duty 4 extensively, you would eventually notice that when you're firing from the hip, the bullets completely scatter as if you were the heavy gunner in Team Fortress 2. Though that is without the perk 'Steady Aim', but why do you need that in the first place? A gun isn't a spray bottle.
adam_grif wrote:
If you had ever fired a real gun you would know that in real life, bullets exit the barrel very, very straight, and only deviate from this path at extended ranges, with the influence of the wind, and the Coriolis effect at extreme distances. Up to 60-70 meters or so, you WILL hit where the barrel is pointing, barring extreme winds.

The reason the bullets "deviate" in games is to simulate that the barrel will not always be kept steady in somebody's hands. Because the actual gun itself in a First Person Shooter didn't jump around AT ALL in old FPS games, to emulate this unsteadiness, they just put a pseudo-random number generator to the task of working out a pseudo-random trajectory to fire the bullet at, to attempt to approximate this unsteadiness.

Now the guns COULD move if the people made them move, but this "random trajectory" bullshit is still in all shooters.

In call of duty 2/3/4, if you aim down the iron sights, the weapons fire realistically in terms of ballistic performance, and when you are not iron sighting, you get the random trajectory stuff.
So the bullets fly straight, the GUN ITSELF moves when you do full auto fire. Unlike in games.

And no, this has absolutely nothing to do with CoD4's success.

Yeah, and I'm saying that pistols should be shit, just like they are in the RL. You can say "ITS A GAME IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE REALISTIC" all you want.

Obviously, a level of realism is important in most games - otherwise halo would have used pew pew star wars lasers for all of the weapons. If you're going to go to such a level of detail explaining everything in your game, writing back-ground documents about it, huge amounts of technical details, obviously believability is important to you.

So it annoys people such as myself, who have actual experience with guns, as well as being weapon enthusiasts, when every game designer on the earth seems to have it set in their mind that pistols are extremely accurate, and, shot for shot, are more effective than most rifles. There are plenty of games that treat pistols as they really are, and they work fine, but most designers insist on being incredibly stupid like this.

I'm saying it makes me angry.

And this above statement, that it makes me angry, is true. You posting that sometimes they do it for reasons doesn't change the fact that 99% of videogames shatter my willing suspension of disbelief on a regular basis. Does that make me a bad person? Should I feel bad for not being more ignorant about all this stuff?

Do you want to run out of rounds when you're chasing a guy with a pistol and die? Or is that not realistic? After all, I think I can fairly contradict myself by saying pistols are sidearms and intended for drastic or otherwise desperate situations

Deviance means something that deviates. And he is talking about bullets deviating from where you are aiming - as in, you point somewhere, and they hit somewhere closeby, but not where you pointed.

THANK YOU, THISNEEDSKERNING, GO BACK TO PRESCHOOL BECAUSE MIKELENOCH IS RIGHT.
Do modern multiplayer games rely too heavily on an objective other than fun?
Modern multiplayer games are nearly outrageous by how heavily they sometimes emphasize the experience which is supposedly fun to arduous tasks such as 150 Headshots, or certain kills with a certain gun under whatever the situation, which may provoke a more menial, hardcore style of play among gamers. The potential style of play that may have gamers playing to achieve all possible goals results in a largely detrimental experience, where the player is no longer encouraged by the promise of fun each match. Do you mind if a game's experience is largely focused on challenges and rank, other than blatant fun?

Hopefully I'm not alone in saying "Playing Call of Duty 4 feels like arduous work!"


These concepts have not yet effected many games other than Call of Duty 4, but seeing as successful it has been, it may (hopefully not) be the dawn of a new, more menial approach to how we play our games.

You can also take several of the Battlefield games as an example.

The main flaw here is that all of those challenges you mention are purely choice. You dont HAVE to do any of them and not many are required to advance or even do well. In COD4, at minimum you need to get 25 kills in order to get a red dot sight on most guns which isnt really much of a task and can be done in 1 or 2 matches.

If people find challenges like this fun then they will take them on. Ive completed a good amount of the challenges in that game but most of them I have just stumbled upon. (ie: learning that claymore mines are a godsend in that game). You speak as if these challenges are being forced on the gamer when they just arent.

The point: You're starting to become like Giuseppe Contelli/Zanmato's "What If's" and Andrew Barker/Xehirut's "Stupid Game Store Stories and Other Standard Embarrassing Shit."

If you don't want to be shit on like this anymore, stop posting like this ("this" being long-winded, intricate and useless) and more shorter shit. If you don't like it, you might as well just stay like this for the rest of your account status.

And how can you defensively support your perception that I think I'm more important than any of you guys for being MADE FUN of on 1up Yours?! I even said; "I'm the lowest of the low here". What more do you want?

As an avid contributor to these boards, they have continually proven to be rather immature. By the fact that 1up has some of the absolutely best podcasts, coupled with the most inane, ignorant, rampant, and utterly ridiculous community the world has ever seen, I wished to simply express my opinions. But obviously, my expectations of intelligence, and true human understanding from the community have not properly matched, as I have been respected by few, and disrespected by an unbelievable amount. I have been scolded for being unique, developing my own writing style, and using words I see appropriate. I have asked this existential question many times before, but; why do people on the internet take absolutely every opportunity to critique anyone on any specific aspect of the smallest minuteness? It's discouraging to say the least. Everyone wants the community to be an absurd haven where elite gamers share their tales. This place is simply not worth my time if the community is such garbage. Every single word to be typed under the MikeLenoch5 profile have constantly been blown out of proportion, ridiculed to death, and misinterpreted. If I contribute so much time, effort, and subtle progress as a writer, and none of that is ever appreciated, I fail to see why I should spend my time here. I might write a very occasional opinion from time to time. I do not like this place, it is depressing and worthless, wretched, and polluted with the scum of the earth.

No one ever got to know me, everyone stood there and laughed

In your opinion, is it more difficult to write a positive or negative review?
In your opinion, is it more difficult to write a generally positive or negative review? What unique difficulties present themselves when being confronted with each type of review?

For example, does a reviewer have to go about describing a certain aspect in more detail if he or she is fond of it than if the reviewer dislikes another aspect of the game? And is it easier to illustrate exactly what a game does wrong than right?






Thank you for your time~

For the most part, it's more of the same gameplay wise. The real fun to be had is in the Horde mode. Co op with a bud is the way to go. I only got it because I could trade in a few of the games my brother didn't want and ended up getting it for 14 bucks.

Also, nothing beats a head shot with a sniper rifle. Boom, no head and a fountain of blood shooting out. It's glorious.

That's plainly disgusting, gruesome, sadistic, and horrifying. What have games done to you?!

What's your most enjoyable example of a driving game?
Personally, Project Gotham Racing perfectly captures the inherent gratification behind each turn and bend and every sense of flair associated with it. Also, that game's physics must have shaped my understanding of how cars handle when I was younger, because that game completely resonates with me -- except PGR1.

Seeing as how open-world gameplay is an increasingly common trend with racing games, do you think a feature such as that sometimes exposes too much of the world, in mundane or otherwise boring ways?

For example, where there isn't a constant motivational force behind driving as fast as one possibly can, doing challenges in Burnout Paradise can eventually diminish to the overall newness and interest in exploring the world -- as opposed to strictly track-based racers, where there can be different routes through the same scenery, as well as reverse variants. (Don't get angry at me because I love Burnout Paradise too) And having a world that I feel like I've already exhausted [Burnout Paradise], renders it a lot less as attractive to go back and play than PGR. (But then again, I don't own PGR 3 or 4)

Or do you simply enjoy being given access to explore the world as you please?
I forgot to mention how I feel about Forza Motorsport 2.

It's most likely one of the least enjoyable racing games I've played within recent years. Now that I think more about it, a hybrid between realism and arcade is most enjoyable for me
GRID -- I loved everything about this game. The physics are weird, but once you learn how to handle your vehicle, it's a blast.

________________________________________

When I tried the demo, Grid's cars were unstable in that the acceleration outweighed the grip of the tires, which is precisely why I found myself suddenly in first place, then in last a mere moment later. I can imagine eventually understanding the physics, and it becoming fun, yet I was never quite grabbed by what I played.

A simple (but obscure) question to pique your Christmas
If you could only choose between an efficient, overly diligent, anti-social, automaton-like editor, with virtually no redeemable character or charisma, or a somewhat lazy editor with charisma, character, and an active, eccentric intelligence that is not apparent in his or her written work on the video game-related website itself, but is accurately represented in his or her contributions to podcasts and conversations to his or her coworkers; which polar opposite qualities of a site editor do you value more and why?

Do you want the news posted on the site as efficiently as possible?

Or do you not mind if the news is slightly late, as long as it is intriguingly written?

I prefer a more charismatic, more human type of video game editor. Anyone can parrot the fresh news off the press release -- but when you have some personality behind the news, it becomes incredibly more interesting to read. I think 1up is comparatively rather slow to post early news, previews, and reviews, but the content can always be expected to be top-notch, and opinionated more so than a typical video game publication. Also, podcasts are in my opinion, typically far more entertaining than a written piece of work, and that is precisely what a podcast asks for: great personality.



Although I suppose, after reading this, it can merely be considered a matter of quality or quantity.
