My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

Age Of Empires III is here and I'm about to play it, w00t!

This thread is for complaining, you retard.

 

I hate people who either try to derail threads, or just don't read the title. Take the ABOVE POST by some random sh*t as an example. Clearly, the poster has an IQ lower than the melting point of water at sea level, and the post in question is a total non-sequitor when considered in the context of this thread.

 

This is an example of the sort of thing that bugs me so much - general lack of care.

 

Grrr.

 

Etc.

Why is it called insert anyway? It doesn't insert. It types over. Clicking then typing inserts.

That's why I've written "THE OPPOSITE OF INSERT" on mine ;)

Why is the "Insert" key on the keyboard so close to everything else? :angry: Why not put it on the other side of the keyboard, under a protective cover? I lose track of the number of times I've hit it by accident, then found myself typing over my text.

 

Come to think of it, CAPS LOCK can be moved as well.

 

:zorro:

not as bad as the windows key....

 

Why do they put the windows button beside the crtl key on a gaming keyboard ?

 

God knows how many times ive been kicked outta my game to be greeted by windows menu giving me the finger...

 

Is there no logic in this world !?!?!

It's because it toggles between Insert (default setting) and Overwrite. I think the key should've been labelled Overwrite, though it's probably a throw back to typewriter days.

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. Why isn't it as good as Vice City? Don't get me wrong, the increased weapons targeting capability is nice. Parachuting is fun. The Hydra's a laugh. But... it's just not as good is it?The radio stations aren't as good. That hip hop/rap ###### is junk, and the talk station is too fragmented to hit the heights of previous games.

 

Yes, I know there's a whole state with three cities the size of Vice to play in, but that just seems to equate to more distance to travel between missions. The game doesn't seem to be any bigger in terms of number of missions, and what there is isn't as much fun.

 

Basically, playing this game makes me wish I knew where I was hiding my copy of Vice City, or even GTA3. :(

GTA Rant on

 

Thats very true, as much as i love the GTA series of games GTA SA is a bit of a let down comapred to the story lines of the others.

It is based around a hip hop sort of thing, maybe because we don't like hip hoppity we wont be quite as into the story as the other games.

 

 

I'll tell you what else annoys me about GTA and thats not having the ability to go and replay the missions, I'd love to be able to go back and do some of them again with all the weapons and ammo you get after 100% completion.

 

And why do they have pointless islands? Like the third island on gta3, whats the point in it, nothing to do there, no reasons to go back, same in VC and also more so in SA.

 

Sa just seemed to end to early, I was expecting more missions on the other islands. And I'm sure more could have been made of the garage story on the second island.

Exactly. I finished SA and thought "Oh. Was that it?" It felt like there was actually less storyline than in VC.

 

And I'd like more say in the storyline. I was really annoyed at having to help Sweet reclaim the hood. I've got a stake in a casino, and manage a major rap artist, but my idiot brother insists we have to help our homies. These would be the same homies who did *fruitcage* all to help either of us when the *beep* hit the fan. When he started ranting on about reclaiming the hood, I wanted to tell him to sod off, as I had real work to do.

What really annoys me at this moment in time is 2 things...

 

1. The Honda advert (you know, the one with the choir doing the sound effects) It lasted about 10 minutes! Bloody annoying sat there watching a bunch of people go

 

"Brrruummmm" "eeeeeeeekkkkkkkk" "Whup whup" :blink: OO-ER! etc

 

2. (And this REALLY annoys me) is when news of a brand new game comes out and then... for no reason... they scrap it!!! B***ards!!! it's happened with no less than 3 games which i've had my sights on.

Asylum - for the XBOX. A first person shooter/horror

Dreamland Chronicles - basically, XCOM next-gen

Snake Plissken's Escape by Namco which has now been shoved in the back of a wardrobe somewhere

 

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRFFNNNGGGGZZZZZSSSSSTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!

 

*Rant Over*

SA is also anoyingly easier that VC. I mean I am actualy almost all the way to completing SA. If VC had the weapons targeting system and turf wars aspect of SA it would have almost infinate lastability.

 

It's a shame that when you do complete all the turfs in SA then thats the end of the gang warfare, no one tries to claim any back, Kinda made it a bit pointless in my mind.

I didnt find SA easier to complete there is a lot more boring stuff to do to get 100%. VC I really enjoyed getting 100% completion.

 

And the A.I of your compatriots is too good in SA. I liked shouting at the tv screen in VC.....

"Get in the car Lance",

"Lance get in the *fruitcaging* car"

"For *fruitcages* sake lance get in the *fruitcaging* car now or the cubans will get you"

" Right thats it you dumb *albatross* reject from Miami vice I'll kill you myself!"

 

 

Anyone remember that level? Did anyone see the Swiss Toni Episode where he ends up playing GTA VC? Whoever wrote that part of the script had obvioulsy played GTA VC :)

 

 

As for the latest GTA on the PS2 Liberty City Stories.... Biggest con EVAR.

It's great on the PSP but no way am I paying full whack for a cut down verison of GTA3 with a less fullfilling storyline.

The Da Vinci Code annoys me more than slightly, how can such a poorly written book be so popular.  Oh thats right because the world is filled with imbeciles who lap this sort of ###### up.  Idiots. etc

I like it.

 

Last night, on the news, there was a storyabout 100+ Catholics who were threatening to starve themselves to death if the film wasn't pulled from release.

 

Great, I say - 100 less Catholic extremists in the world.

Woot, a real rant.

 

Teenage drinking ###### me off. For some reason, a bunch of 14/15 year olds talking about "getting smashed before the concert" and "drinking 20 beers" isn't right. The thing that ###### me off the most is a lot of parents don't like me, they think I'm the bad kid, the trouble maker. I'd like to see them when they figure out what their son/daughter is doing on their saturday nights.

Tell them. Then take photos as proof.

 

Watch the faces on the kids when they get grounded for 6 months :D

 

Teenage drinking doesn't p*ss me off totally - hey, I enjoy the odd beer at home on a late night, or with a meal. But I can't see ANY point in just 'getting smashed'.

 

But hey, I'll be the one laughing when they die of a liver failure.
