It took me over 24 real hours to beat MGS, but I take my time.

I actually don't know how long it took me. I was doing the usual make fun of MGS for all of its cutscenes routine.

Sounds like it's worth buying then, if I could find a reasonably priced copy.

You can find them very cheap. I paid 5 or so dollars for my copy of MGS2 and about twice that for MGS both at EB/Gamespot.

Make sure you inspect the discs!  Also, in MGS2 (I think), you need a code to get the radio working. You can find it at gamefaqs if the copy you find doesn't include the original packaging.
13486  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Let's War! What's your Most Disappointing Game of the Year? on: November 30, 2006, 01:08:36 PM
I have two that come to mind:

Shadow of the Colossus

and....

Okami

SotC is well loved on this board, but I still feel it was a long way from the perfection label that people granted it There was emotional impact upon killing the first few titans, but by and large, after you've gone through the variants, it's basically the same fight over and over in different locales.  I would have liked to see more variety in the bosses- and the ways in which you kill them, less travel (more time spent on traveling than fighting) and especially more character development.

Okami- I'm not terribly far in this game...I want to say 8 hrs...and it has been a struggle to get that far.  I was really looking forward to this game (bought it on release day at full price), but it just hasn't delivered for me.  Knowing that it's about 40 hrs long means I'll probably never invest the time in it that one apparently should.  Sure it's pretty, sure it's witty, sure the evironments are neat, but for me it's just missing 'something'.

13488  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gears of War/Multiplayer N00bz Look Here/Link to Friday Night Game! on: November 30, 2006, 12:56:04 PM
Hi everyone, I'm ATB: an avid Single Player gamer of average skill.  I would like to invite my fellow SP gamers into a GOW MP game Saturday night at around 10 PM EST.

My ideal players would be those with limited or no experience playing GOW multiplayer (I'm not looking for someone who has the maps memorized or is just looking to increase their frag count) or multiplayer at all. Other than some coop Smash TV, I've not done any multiplayer gaming at all...ever with the exception of one game of C&C with a friend over 56k...12 or so years ago.

Let me know if you're interested either in this thread or over PM. I guess I need 3 players. (I should probably read the manual on how to do this biggrin).

My plan is to cut my teeth and then jump in with the rest of the veteran GT crew at sometime in the future.

I know this should probably be in the MP forum, but if my target audience is like me, then they probably never go in there. Move if you must mods.

Looks like the the hype has already worn off. Just went to look at the current auctions as of today(Weds afternoon) and a system closed for $765+80 2nd day air shipping. A profit for the guy but when you include the time spent to get the thing and packaging it up for shipping not really worth it IMO.

That may have been for the 20GB. 60s seem to still be selling for between 900-1100.

I'm usually nice to everyone on the phone.  I just don't get that bitter.  However, some customer service reps have really cheesed me off...especially when there's a language barrier.

The angriest I get though is typically: "Can I speak to your supervisor?"

Tomb Raider Legends (X360) - Game of the Year for 2006

And along come Starshifter to turn everyone on their head.  That's why we love him.

More thoughts:

GOTY Played by Console (not necessarily released in 2006):

DS: Advanced Wars Dual Strike- The best TBS game I have ever played.  Perfectly balanced.
Xbox: Panzer Dragoon Orta- Planned to go through it again sometime, but I sold it.
PS2: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty-  A true masterwork.
PC: Diablo II-  Uh. it's the only thing I played at all on PC. And that was just a flirtation.

PS2 was the hardest to make a judgement on as every game I've played on it (except for SotC) has been A caliber.
13496  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Next batch of Wiis? on: November 29, 2006, 02:10:59 PM
My guess is that speculation is correct that many of the units are already laying around in wherehouses somewhere.

600k number is probably just a percentage of whats already out there waiting to be sold.

So that everyone is well acquainted with my legacy as I approach the 2000 post mark at GT, I thought I would reveal some exciting statistics:

Registered: May 3, 2004
Registration Number: 25. This means I can give orders to all of you except for the 24 who preceded me a la the stonecutters.  Devil: Dance in place until I tell you to stop!

Site looks great.

The new logo is fantastic.

However, does this mean that the Console Gaming forum on GG is going to die or be killed?

PPD through December 31, 2005: .85 574 Active Days/492 Posts

But 2006 has been a banner year...

PPD Through June 15 2006: 1.07   742/854.  Not bad. 1 per, but barely a whisper.
PPD From June 16, 2006 to present: 6.5 166/1104. Now yer talkin baby!

Overal PPD: 2.08. Respectible and not oversaturating the forum with my hilarious genius.  Prudent use of posts.

Top 10 Stats: #6 All Time for Threads Started.  #5 is in my sights.  However, if you compare thread quality versus quantity, everyone knows I'm the People's Champion.

Other Milestones: Have achieved the coveted rank of Senior Gaming Trend Member.  I think that means I'm on staff but I'm not sure. 

Predictions:

  • In the 2007 GT MVP voting, I win the first of 4 consecutive titles
  • I win an epic 37 hour dance off with Whiteboyskim in 2009, thus bookending the trilogy with a 2-1 record

Personally I think the number should be a lot higher. Somewhere in the 35-45% range. Due to Sony's massive shortages and because there are a lot of a**-holes in this world.

I actually think the jerks are the ones who selfishly kept it for themselves.  Take that!

I know the year's not over, but according to the GT Calendar there's not much coming out the rest of the way (I'm not sure if it's updated).  That said, what's your GOTY with just over a month left?

Even though I'm enjoying GoW immensely, I can't foresee it overtaking Dead Rising as my favorite game of the year.  For me, DR did everything right (including the save system). It scared me, made me laugh, made me tense, had great characters and a fabulous controls scheme.

I may not have been clear. I get the PM's, but I am not getting the notification that one has arrived.

As opposed to hyping shit up, then calling it a "buggy, unplayable mess"?

Indeed, at least some people can ADMIT something they hyped turned out to be fecalish.  Other people, just try to sweep it aside and hope people will forget they aren't Sylvia Brown.
