Clans / Transaction of players from clan to clan
« on: January 20, 2008, 09:41:18 pm »
I think its not right to change players from clan to clan when it comes to clan wars. A clan should have permanent players or 'temporary' ones participating in battles but taking players from other clans at last moment? I want to know what admins think about this.

Game Lounge / Gamer users virtual training to SAVE LIVES!!!!

Gamer uses virtual training to save lives
Player of America's Army used in-games techniques in a rescue situation.

By Ben Silverman

Think playing video games is little more than a great way to waste time? Then you haven't met Paxton Galvanek. Last November, the twenty-eight year-old helped rescue two victims from an overturned SUV on the shoulder of a North Carolina interstate. As the first one on the scene, Galvanek safely removed both individuals from the smoking vehicle and properly assessed and treated their wounds, which included bruises, scrapes, head trauma and the loss of two fingers.

His medical background? None - other than what he's learned playing as a medic in the computer game America's Army.

The first-person shooter is developed and distributed by the U.S. Army. Though part of its mission is to promote its military namesake, America's Army is a fully-featured game that takes players through a virtual representation of real-life soldiering, from basic training to the field of battle. To play as a medic class, players must sit through extensive medical training tutorials based on real-life classes.

Lucky for the two survivors that Paxton Galvanek didn't zone out during the training, as the gamer credits this experience with teaching him how to handle himself in an emergency situation.

"In the case of this accident, I evaluated the situation and placed priority on the driver of the car who had missing fingers," he said. "I then recalled that in section two of the medic training, I learned about controlled bleeding. I noticed that the wounded man had severe bleeding that he could not control. I used a towel as a dressing and asked the man to hold the towel on his wound and to raise his hand above his head to lessen the blood flow which allowed me to evaluate his other injuries which included a cut on his head."

By the time help arrived in the form of -- ironically enough -- an Army soldier, the individuals were in stable condition and awaiting the paramedics.

Galvanek's decisions were lauded by game project director Colonel Casey Wardynski. "Because of the training he received in America's Army's virtual classroom, Mr. Galvanek had mastered the basics of first aid and had the confidence to take appropriate action when others might do nothing. He took the initiative to assess the situation, prioritize actions and apply the correct procedures... Paxton is a true hero."

According to the developers of America's Army, this is the second time one of their users has reportedly applied techniques learned in the game to real-life emergency situations. You can find more information about the game at www.americasarmy.com.

Game Lounge / Photosensitive Epilepsy
« on: December 31, 2007, 05:31:37 pm »

Although some video games may be quite safe to play, others could present some risk if you have photosensitive epilepsy. There are things you can do to minimise the risk of video games triggering seizures.

    *

      If you are using a television rather than a computer monitor, follow the precautions for watching television as well as those below.
    *

      Before playing, check to see if there are any warnings that come with the game. Most games manufacturers, but not all, follow the Office of Communications (Ofcom) television guidelines. Some put a warning on the packaging while others put it on the instructions inside.
    *

      Avoid playing when tired as tiredness/lack of sleep may increase the risk of a seizure.
    *

      Take frequent breaks for rest and food between playing games.
    *

      Play video games in well-lit areas.
    *

      Sit as far back from the monitor as possible.
    *

      If possible, use an LCD/TFT monitor, but remember to reduce the brightness of the screen to reduce the contrast.
    *

      For most people, covering one eye while playing will reduce the effect of any flickering on the screen. You should cover your eye, not simply close it.
    *

      If your child has photosensitive epilepsy, you may wish to keep a close eye on them when they are playing video games. If they show any signs of distress or discomfort such as dizziness, blurred vision, loss of awareness or muscle twitching, you should immediately stop them playing the video game.

 ;D just an informative. no one gives a shit lol. i face these symptoms some times :/

Xbox 360 / Xbox 360 game reviews and discussions
« on: August 22, 2007, 08:02:01 pm »
As requested by onca  ;D,we start on a new thread to discuss all 360 games Reviews if you have played em,  New game releases, selections, arguments wat so ever.
Any discussions related to xbox live maybe done in that specific thread.

Halo2 discussions also will take only on this thread


Lets talk about Gears of War first. I have played it a little and found it pretty boring,the single player campaign that is. The shooting scenes were a bit repetitive,i didnt find the enemy AI impressive. The blood splatter on the screen was so cool and always gives you that serial killer feeling :D The blind boss's scene was pretty cool. The way he charges like a bull is adrenaline pumping. only thing missing was a red sheet :P

There was a bug in the game while i was playing. The commander guy didnt appear to open a gate :S he was struggling trying to run across a wall.

As onca said the multiplayer seemed to be fun. I hope you will emphasize more on this ;D

Do you think in future, army men will wear huge tanks like that? o_O
Its hard for me to imagine (regardless of weight).


Please note i made these judgements within a game play of 1 or 2 hours.
So please do write some more interesting facts about the game. r33hesh and onca pls :D

General / Ground Zero own some beastzzZZzz
« on: August 08, 2007, 10:59:09 pm »
They got some 4 xbox 360s and 4 ps3s, sounds so uber cool?
but not yet they aint got no games :S man they must be outta cash not to buy games (We had to bring the original halo2 cd to play in the 360s). The guy didnt even give us discounts even though he promised once. (one bugger knew him well, maybe a lil too well  ;D) He said "discount time is over" Good times are upcoming i hope. Place has been drying for some time now.

I think they have to upgrade their 10,00 year old pcs which full of viruses and the environment as well. Im getting sick of the blue grim look. But yes,they are mainly for consoles but again thats no reason to have old pcs right.

RPG / MMO / Stuck at Leyawiin recommendation!
« on: June 08, 2007, 05:48:25 pm »
ok so i really wanted to get into the Arcane University,
I engaged in the quest to gain Leyawiin's recommendation but hell! At fort Blue Blood i killed all the Marauders but didnt get any key required to enter the room containing this amulet. I searched through the place many times,went through every god damn body but didnt find any keys  :-\

Totally about oblivion
This site above kicks ass, every fine detail about oblivion from weapons,maps to NPCs.
They say there is only one bug : "Do not leave Fort Blueblood without encountering and talking to Kalthar. He should come running right after you retrieve the amulet from Manduin's Coffin. If you do leave before you will not be able to give the amulet to Dagail. " i left the place after killing everyone to check whether there was anything outside but i didnt find the amulet in the first place.

If anyone knows how to fix this please HALP!! I'll have to restart the whole game to get in to the university (i'm a mage so its really important that i do so)

Multiplayer / Multi Theft Auto
« on: May 22, 2007, 10:00:17 pm »
http://www.multitheftauto.com

'Multi Theft Auto (MTA) is a multi-player modification for Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto game series. It is the world's first modification to incorporate multi-player into a single-player PC game.

Originally founded back in early 2003 as an experimental piece of software, Multi Theft Auto has since grown into an advanced multiplayer platform for gamers and third-party developers.

Starting with MTA for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you can play Grand Theft Auto on-line with your friends, in your own custom created maps and gamemodes, powered by the LUA scripting language and hundreds of game specific functions.'

Man the servers for this are like so huge! 100 player slots! As i've seen at game-monitor.com





any of you guys play this? looks like a loot of fun! :D
