PlanetCrap's Request-a-Feature Thread
December 27th 2003, 23:13 CET by zimbardo_ugly

You know we need one of these.

I'll start off by kindly pointing how useful it would be to make the web interface display the last X (configurable) posts in a thread along with the unread threads, so that I can see what the first displayed poster is jibbleing about without manually shaving the address to the offset and lowering the post number. Also, it would be neat if those posts already read would be marked somehow (perhaps tinted background / font). Thank you.

I voted no. I wrote a similar topic last year and at least put in the minimal effort to provide a few links and a summary of the past year. No effort = no vote. This is what democracy looks like!

The site could use a link harvester that stores the URL's in a searchable database with a timestamp.  Two advantages.  One, it would cut down on the apparent horror of repeated URL's.  Two, if someone does repeat a URL, then the "Dude, that link is like so four months, twelve days, eight hours and fifteen minutes ago" posting could be really accurate.

I think the site should have a text-to-speech feature, but all it does is make muted trumpet sounds, like Charlie Brown's teachers.

When Stalker is released, it will suffer the Deus Ex 2 fate of "on my real world graphics card and system, the graphics look ok but nowhere near as nice as in the screenshots and videos".

At least Stalker won't ship with Xbox settings. And anyone who actually spells the name out as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. deserves to be pummeled with an olive loaf.

DX2 was the best game I played in 2003.

Other than earlier in the year when I replayed DX for the fifth time.

Is this like when Leslie said that Enter the Matrix was the best game he had played in 2003, because up to that point he had only played one other game?

In all seriousness, DX2 isn't as bad as people say, but it doesn't even begin to approach best game of the year in a year that saw Knights of the Old Republic, LoZ: Wind Waker, Prince of Persia: SoT, Viewtiful Joe, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, Crimson Skies: HRtR, Jak II, Mario Kart: DD, SSX3, Beyond Good and Evil, Metal Arms: Glitch and I-Ninja released.

I'd wait for a new topic but who gives a shit?

I stopped playing KOTOR after a stupid terminal murdered my entire party when I selected "overload". I don't care if I was supposed to understand that that was going to happen based on the tutorial from several hours before. I didn't understand, it insta-killed me, set me back ten minutes, and that was it for the game. I've had no desire to play since.

Wind Waker: So much boring sailing that I couldn't bring myself to finish it.
POP: I've heard good things, but it'll be a cold day in hell before I buy yet another console title. I have six GameCube games and the only one I could be bothered to finish was Resident Evil.
Viewtiful: Ick. Ugly cel-shading plus beat-em-up gameplay. woohah.

The rest of the games listed don't even interest me enough to comment on them.

Splinter Cell didn't last past the first mission. TOEE didn't last past the first *town*. KOTOR... see above. All of my nintendo games, see above -- I'm likely going to give my gamecube to a friend, since it's been sitting on a shelf not even plugged in since I moved in August. The $300-ish I've spent on a GBA SP and assorted games? My little sister has logged easily five times as much gaming with my SP as I have. I played through most of the snes zelda remake, and about five minutes each of golden sun, aria of sorrow, lost vikings, and a couple others.

I spent more hours this year playing DX1 and Asheron's Call than all of the stuff I bought in 2003 combined. DX2 held my interest all the way through, the only 2003 game to do so, so it wins by default.

My wife and I are getting ready to buy a console for some togetherness time.  We both hated our PS2 and sold it after 6 months but are willing to try consoles again.  Her only request is being able to play some kind of quality kart game (like Mario Kart 64, the last cart game we played).  I guess my question is does Xbox have any of these, or am I stuck with the gamecube?

I'm likely going to give my gamecube to a friend, since it's been sitting on a shelf not even plugged in since I moved in August.


If the answer is Gamecube can I be your friend?  I'd even pay for shipping and a little extra as a thank you. ;)

I don't get all the sailing hate for Wind Waker. I hate Wind Waker and think it's an execrable game, but the sailing was the most enjoyable part.

Jibble -

Again, I'm not saying it's a bad game. It's obviously a very good game. My threshold for annoyance in games, however, is unbelievably small. Ridiculously small. The problem is very much me, and not the game.

However, I don't know how to fix it, so... meh.

Crash -

I logged in for a few months, took a character up to level 65, then got involved with some other projects that are more productive use of my time than playing games, and haven't logged in since late November. My patron's probably wondering what all the hell is going on. :P

I think Chris has been for quite a while now, in the same mood regarding gaming that I was briefly in this earlier this year, when I hated everything.  I mean, the slightest bug, or UI clunkiness or anything, would kill my interest in a game.

Best game I bought this year: KOTOR.

Best game I bought for the PC: Crazy Taxi.

PC gaming has left me cold, unfortunately. I was hoping Deux Ex 2 would cure me of that, but the demo  has made me seriously consider picking it up for the xBox.

I think that my enjoyment of gaming relies entirely on the bar that I've set.  It's actually buried three miles into the earth's crust.  I figured after a while that asking for bug-free PC games was a fantasy, and that console games would almost always suffer from somewhat clunky control.  Several lowered expectations later, I find myself a bit more accepting to a lot of the stupid crap that's associated with gaming.  Your mileage may, and will, vary.

The XBox version of DX2 is sweet, sweet, love.

Best games from this year:
KOTOR, Viewtiful Joe, Mario Kart: DD, DX2, PN03, GTA Double Pack.

Best games I (re)played this year from previous years:
Mario Sunshine, Baldur's Gate: DA, Mechassault, DX1, NFS4,
I just picked up Armed and Dangerous (I think it was here that someone was spooging over it). I'll have a short review later on (short = totally sweet || suX0rs!).


Last night, I found the absolute joys of XBox Live. I was up until 6am playing Mechassault.

I tried playing the demo when it was first released, and I couldn't get into it. I was wandering around at 3fps for about 10 minutes before I gave up.

I *really* wanted to like Uru. I loved Myst, Riven, and Exile. realMyst is one of my all time favorite games.

Squeaky, did you happen to play it in windowed mode?  Or use the REF driverset?  It was unplayable for me like that.  Only under HAL and fullscreen was it smooth.
