The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Raven Shield

    I played it for two hours tonight. I know a lot of people hate it for being too realistic, but it's awesome because it forces people to be serious. If anyone tries firing their gun like crazy, they don't hit crap. I've played the other Rainbow Six games and even one of my roommates who hated those with a passion, loved this demo. Anyone else playing it?

    Is it like Ghost Recon? I enjoyed Ghost Recon but I really have to be in the right mood to play it. I'm all for realistic games, but sitting there and having my team crawl through a bush for 5 minutes straight, just to sneak up on some guys, gets boring after a while, especially if I f*ck up and have to restart!

    No, it is very much NOT like Ghost Recon. Maps are much smaller urban and interior maps. They are small enough for a fast paced, bloody large player count game, or for a good one on one stealth-off. Its just...its awesome.

    Just give it a try. You can download the multiplayer demo now. Go to fileplanet.

    I think I'm just gonna get UT 2003. Nice simple fragging and I guess they must have a very solid online component. I am more interested in interactive play, as single player fps tend to bore me a bit after a while.

    Ravenshield is all about multiplayer and teamwork, duder. It is strange, its the first game where everybody WANTS to work as a team instead of three guys working together, and everybody else going Rambo. It is far more entertaining when you work together. Its on the UT engine as well, so the graphics and effects are superb. Fantastic netcode, too.

    But UT is always good for a thrash..and I guess you dont really haev to depend on anyone huh?


    Eh.

    Shut up fatty!

    Ok, I'm gonna go at lunch, and whichever one has the better "look" on the exterior of the box wins! Unless I get subverted and buy Neverwinter Nights. I love RPGs but I have baldur's gate 2 installed and haven't even played it yet other than for the first segment. Or I maybe I'll get an older game as well like Arcanum, I used to love playing Fallout and I think it's the same format.

    Well, I bought UT2K2. Raven Shield isn't even released yet! Or at least not in Canada if it is out in the states. I think most ppl are playing the demo. I also bought Silent Hunter since it was cheap, and sub games are cool. I bought a used copy of unreal, but then asked about the fact that if the cd key was used online I couldn't use it, the guy basically just switches from a new box but was lazy and just gave me the new package...so that was a nice $10 off for nothing.

    I must now wait until work is over to "frag" stuff. :evillaugh

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    The netcode is still a bit buggy after the recent patch. It's still fun, but when you have 32 people playing someone is bound to be an idiot. Not to mention a lot of people just fly around in planes or ride jeeps off cliffs during the entire game. Like all games you play it depends on the server you find.

    The first demo for it was released for a LAN party in the UK. Ubisoft (the people who made the game), were running a tournament with a prize pool of about £2,500. Unfortunately some of the people who were allowed to download it (people playing in the tourney) leaked it, and since ubisoft had a limit on the number of people able to use it (to prevent a leak ;o ), a load of people didn't get any practice until they got there :o.
    I think they released the official demo after the event.

    Get Arcanum, El P, it is an extremely good game. Prepare to waste a LOT of time on Arcanum. There is a lot of the same character interaction from Fallout, and tons of weapons/customization. The atmosphere is incredible, as well.

    Well I have been playing Unreal Tournament for the last few hours and I like it. Just getting better at it before I try and join a multiplayer. The weapons could be better though.
