View Full Version : e3 expo

05-12-2004, 08:17 PM
Well, as of the time I am writing this post, the E3 Expo has been going on for 2 days now. Anyone here been keeping up with it?

I have watched the new Doom III, Legend of Zelda, and Halo 2 trailers, and they all look awesome. I am incredibly excited about Doom III coming out this July (I plan on buying that thing the 1st day it is out...and that is pretty dang incredibly for me...usually i just pirate the game or get it when it comes down in price).

I also have a good friend at the E3 Expo right now, and I am pretty excited to see what he says about it when he gets home.

What about all of you?

usually i just pirate the game


I'm looking forward to possible Blizzard announcements and Zelda.

I have been followin Halo 2 and Half-life 2. Both of those I am going to get release day.

I wish I could go to E3 but I am not 18 and gamestop isn't hiring...damn.

I haven't been into too many games recently... after beating KOTOR I just haven't been too interested, but I've been passively watching for Halo 2

05-12-2004, 11:47 PM
i was at e3 today (i know someone who works for ign). the half-life 2 presentations blew me away, but i was expecting that. doom3 looked pretty killer on xbox, can't wait to see that game on an x800 or 6800 (oh, i also got to play farcry running on a 6800 and that was frickin ausome!). this is one of the best e3's i've been to (this is my 4th): adult zelda, metroid prime 2, nintendo ds, halo 2, half-life 2, sony psp, splinter cell 3, doom 3, .........

>this is one of the best e3's i've been to (this is my 4th):

I envy you.

05-13-2004, 08:25 PM
My buddy is out there for it.

I have a preorder on HL2, cant wait.

05-13-2004, 08:51 PM
I'm probibly heading out to LWE in San Fransisco this summer I believe, that will be the first "event", and it won't happen oftin because I'm ALWAYS lacking in money. I'll get some info on this one, too.

05-13-2004, 08:52 PM
i don't think i'll preorder doom III, but i'll defanatly buy it early on, because i want to see how people react to the game before spending 50-60 bux0rz.
doom III looks alot like doom 64, which was a real failure :(

05-13-2004, 09:37 PM
I'm not expecting much from Doom III, BUT the "demo" was pretty impressive.

05-14-2004, 11:46 AM
The new Zelda does look good.

05-14-2004, 03:12 PM
ya needs to be a pc version

05-14-2004, 03:18 PM
That new Zelda looks like a Lord of the Rings movie!

05-14-2004, 03:23 PM
i hate it when all the game companies show for screenshots are the game cinematics. e.g. on the back of the box. if i wanted to watch a movie, i wouldn't play games.

05-14-2004, 03:56 PM
what excites me the most is all of the super physics coming out.

i played the doom3 demo, and watched the half life 2 movies...the physics makes me drool. Being able to program something as 'simple' as a barrel tipping over, and knowing when it collides with something, and then applying the appropriate torque when it hits a wall and it bounces off, is incredibly complex, and whoever can code that type of stuff is absolutely god.

>i played the doom3 demo, and watched the half life 2 movies...the physics makes me drool.

Same here.

>That new Zelda looks like a Lord of the Rings movie!

It does! Some of those screenshots look straight from Lord of the Rings! The one looks like Balrog (or however you spell it), then another one looks like the battle with those wolf rider orc guys in the Two Towers movie, the forest looks like the Ents. It's kinda crazy.

>I'm not expecting much from Doom III

:eek: how dare you speak blasphemy on these boards!!!

j/k j/k

we all have our own opinions. I myself am a big Doom fan so I am looking forward to it a lot.

Also I never really played Half Life, so I havent really kept up with Half Life 2 videos and stuff and so far dont even plan on getting it. But I have seen a couple videos which my friend showed me, and it does look cool.

yeah me too...the first game i've ever played in my life was the doom shareware version. still the best game i've ever played.
by the time doom III is out i'll have T1...i can't wait to host a server. I just really hope the game turns out well. hopefully alot of people buy the game.

05-14-2004, 06:01 PM
You gotta quit changing your game servers. Im going broke dammit.

05-14-2004, 07:04 PM
lol pepethegaywaiter?!?!?!?!
did you buy call of duty 1.1?
lol i cant believe you signed up on a programming forum

05-14-2004, 07:36 PM
>That new Zelda looks like a Lord of the Rings movie!

It does look very good (if that's what you are trying to say). Can you believe it uses the same engine as Wind Waker?

05-14-2004, 07:57 PM
How am i supposed to know if it is v1.1 in an ebay listing?
anything i should look for (i.e. Box colorations/markings)?
Why wouldn't i sign up for a programming forum?
I know basic c++ and php. You must think im incredibly stupid. Well .......... you then! I took the c++ test and got a 70%.

05-14-2004, 08:37 PM
well i didn't know that. that test must be easy. jk sir.
anyway don't waste your money on cod, wait for doom III.

05-14-2004, 08:47 PM
i guessed on most. I got a 30% the first time. cod is only a buck plus shipping so no big deal. unless you put et up again. I miss schatz.

05-14-2004, 08:51 PM
ET has been up for a while if you havn't noticed. dude, i gave my serverconfig to my friends and now i'm running a ws instant respawn empire! but no website. f'ing romanians. You might find schatz on one of those servers.

05-14-2004, 08:53 PM
i uninstalled it.
plays like crap on this pos.
I thought you took it down? What happened to that?

05-14-2004, 08:57 PM
schatz has been making me put it back up from time to time. and when are you going to get a new processor?

05-14-2004, 08:59 PM
when i get the money

05-14-2004, 09:58 PM
well if cod is only a dollar then if its v1.1 get it. i can host 16 clients all with pings <200 ms. its amazing. find that in ET. I only wonder what Doom III's online capabilities will be like...

05-14-2004, 11:03 PM
how am i to know if its 1.1 with out questioning an ignorant seller?

05-15-2004, 11:38 AM
can't you contact him somehow over ebay? doesn't it give you a phone number? if so just ask him to look at the bottom right when he starts the game.

05-15-2004, 11:58 AM
Well if he is selling it legally he wouldnt have it installed would he?
How would he/she know the version if it were sealed?

05-15-2004, 07:48 PM
HalfLife is vapour ware. They said it would be released last year this time. :rolleyes: Who can forget the success of Team Fortress 2?

At least with a company like ID they only announce the release date when it is about to go gold.

My guess is the people at Valve found it is a lot harder to make an engine than just use ID's like they did last time...

05-15-2004, 08:26 PM
IAMPEPE and XTerria: Do us a favor and meet each other on IRC or something

05-15-2004, 08:38 PM
It's obvious - they're the same person. Or brothers.

05-15-2004, 08:59 PM
sorry bout that guys...:/
and no he's from nevada or somthing and im from new york...hes a just a frequent user of my game servers

05-15-2004, 09:42 PM
Well, the cboard is not a chat room.

Lurker: I figured something similiar

05-15-2004, 11:11 PM
im serious we aren't the same person cant the admin check the ips or somthing

05-15-2004, 11:36 PM
id stick up for ya but im not in that kind of mood. Besides my opinion doesnt matter anyway. We're the same person!!
