14441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is it the Weekend Again? 11/Aug/06 on: August 11, 2006, 11:52:46 AM
Today is going to be the longest Friday in memory due to the work I have to get done, but I'm looking longingly to tonight and this weekend, where I probably won't game that much, but will be getting in at least some:

DQVIII
Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time


and

I may revisit Guitar Hero again in preparation for a trip to see my niece and nephew. They now have the game and I'm all interested in doing the duelling guitars thing.

Well, it's a novelty at this point.  Once the fuss dies down everything will be fine.  If there's any forum here that needs a shot in the arm it's EBG.  

Now let's get to discussing something else...like hmmm. Nevermind, I'm off to the console forum.

OO is a place that is hard to describe, but something about that particular forum just brought out the worst in me. From what I see/hear, it tends to bring out the worst in many others as well. I am registered and post at nearly two dozen internet forums, and have never been banned at any forum except for OO. In fact, I never had a problem at any except OO.  


O RLY?

Uhm. Devi is a lot of drama still. Kobra finally got the perma ban he deserved. I voted for it, but lost a friend out of it. Sadly. He wanted me to be bias about my decision for his perma ban. O.o I mean, if you look at his record the whole time he's been here.. All he does it flame, harrass, argue, whine. Whether or not he's a friend to me, doesn't mean I'm going to LIE to his face or anyone else's and be bias. As a GM, you shouldn't be bias anyways. o_o It's really kind of stupid, he took it as 'backstabbing.' I don't know, I don't think he's good for Devi. Whether or not I believed that the screenshot of his 'packetting' was actually packetting. To me there was a big difference from the screenshot taken of him, packetting and the time he packetted for testing. And seeing a difference. Sadly I think he was trying to prove there IS no difference, but there really is.. xD Maybe he did packet, considering the point he was trying to prove? I dunno. O.o But there was a difference to me. It's just funny how he takes things so personal.. But, oh well. He's the one who decided to drop the "two year friendship." Not me. I don't drop friendships over silly shit like that. I mean, god. He also tried to prove that Shiros and I were inactive with GMing on Devilish. Which is pure bullshit. We normally wake up and then GM and stuff. -.-; That or we get on before we sleep. And it's really EVERY day. We may have missed one day, sure. But god.


Ah yes. Trust but verify.

It's funny how both GT and BC pick up the debris of OO.  Only then do people realize how cool (yet for totally different reasons) each of those sites are and how...just awful... OO has become.

ATB: GamingTrend reader before being a GamingTrend reader was cool.

14446  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Two Part Question: GBA Games on DS and M&L Superstar Sag on: August 09, 2006, 06:07:48 PM
Quote from: "Kevin Grey"
I'd be interested in someone's opinion on this who didn't play Superstar Saga first.  My feeling on Partners in Time isn't that it's actually worse, it just isn't really much of an improvement so it doesn't feel nearly as fresh.  I wouldn't be surprised to find that a person who plays PiT first would either prefers it to SS or doesn't find SS to really be that much better.


Got a copy you want to send me? If so, i'll be your guy slywink.

I'm shopping for it and it appears that cartridge only looks like the way to go for cheap (do they explain all the moves in SS like they do in PiT)?

Otherwise it'll be 20+ and I'm not in the mood to spend that much yet.

14449  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Two Part Question: GBA Games on DS and M&L Superstar Sag on: August 08, 2006, 05:27:49 PM
As said somewhere, M&L partners in time what is currently dominating my play time.

That said, M&L SS actually has higher ratings, but it's a GBA card. Is there a graphical difference between the GBA games and the DS ones? Is it significant?

Will I be able to successfully go back and play SS if I'm used to the controls and innovaiton of PiT?

Advice porfavor.
14450  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Would you Buy the Wii for $229? on: August 08, 2006, 01:31:40 PM
For 229.00 yep. No doubt.  

That said, I'm hesitant about being an early adopter of a console (got the DS lite at launch but I don't think that counts).

I've never been one and have always been the beneficiary of that choice.

Also, though Nintendo's rep for creating impecable hardware is sound, all the difficulties people have had with 360 makes me gunshy.

14454  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best not-pressing-start video in a game? on: August 07, 2006, 01:53:58 PM
Whenever I get a new game I always let the game roll through the studio splashes and everything else in hopes that there's something going on.

I liked the sweeping cinematic for DQVIII...not necessarily pertinent to the story, but great shots of the landscape etc.

I had no idea there was animosity between GT and OO members. Since when? Or is it just certain people?

Certainly no official animosity and really no unofficial animosity either.  After GG folded people went in different directions based on their personalities, preferences and who they liked talking with on message boards.

No biggie - just different strokes.  I posted at OO a lot in the past and haven't been there for several months.  I'll get back over there again I'm sure.


Yeah, knew all that, but your summary is appropos...perhaps the animosity is just with Dirt...which is wholly understandable slywink. I'm the same way re OO, though I'm pretty much done with that site for good.

You simply must keep us informed (if possible) about the work you're doing and where we can see it.

Then we can say 'I know the guy who did that!'

Well, the fams and I are set to take off for a 5 day road trip, so I'll be playing almost exclusively on the DS.  However, my friend does have a PS2 and has requested that I bring a certain Guitar based game.

So it looks like:

Before we leave:

DQVIII
Phoenix Wright
(about to finish case #4)


On the trip:

Guitar Hero
Phoenix Wright
Advance Wars
Mario Kart

Might try out Mario and Luigi, Partners in Time

It will probably be a hoot overall, but I wonder if it will have legs.

Thoughts?
14464  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Would you rather battle... on: August 03, 2006, 06:24:31 PM
I would rather fight a werewolf.

I would rather lose to a vampire.

I would totally hit all the clubs, party all night long, become a legend of the night.

Why do I think of Vamp when I think of TML as a vampire?

Offshoot questions:

1. I remember reading the original Dracula, by Bram Stoker and being blown away by the guy's ability to narrate. What a helluva good book that was. Has anyone read it?

2. Does becoming a vampire automatically make you evil?  I mean besides the whole killing people and sucking their blood. Do you automatically become evil?  Or could you be a 'good vampire' and only eat criminals or something?  Also, if we were putting this into D&D terms, are vampires considered lawful evil or chaotic evil?

I have data on 3 different HDs I need to consolidate, but have no access to a tower to plug them into.

So- I should be able to buy this, plug in the drives, then plug the USB into my laptop and copy data from the HDs to my laptop?

I had two 2600s- the original and the slim which i bought like 2 weeks before I met someone with a NES.

1 odessey...have no idea what happened to it

I want to say 2 NES'- one to replace one that wouldn't hold the cartridge down

SNES that I had for about a week and took back.

1 XBOX bought at the end of 2002

1 PS2 bought in March of this year

That's about it.

Edit: Sega Master System that was given to me

Sega Genesis.

I suppose I could give Dragon Quest another go.  I got killed in the first dungeon and lost interest.


I'm playing this right now. I died several several times in the first dungeon.

After that, the game really opens up. I'm about 23 hrs into it...It's simply exquisite.

Peddlers in Shadow Hearts: Cov. Sure. Haven't gotten to that other guy though.

Zangief- yes, have played with and against him, don't agree though.

Not far enough in MGS:3 to reach the gay major.

Vamp. Yep. Fa lay ming, as homer would say.

And that's it.

I have not heard of anyone else on that list.

Tingle?  What Zelda game(s) was he in? I started but never got far in Ocarina...

Played some Mario Kart too.
14478  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DQVIII: Morrie's Place on: July 31, 2006, 12:59:20 PM
You all know it, the game is a hoot.

A question about Morrie's Place (spoilers about MP and main quest points).

He's given me the memos, but I believe I've already defeated 2 of the 3 monsters.

Does this mean that I can't complete this side quest or do they not appear in the game until you get the memos?

I ask the question cause in my exploring I discovered the moon door location prior to it being 'unlocked'...so I'm hoping that the same is true of these monsters.

Thanks.

I'm bitter at the way MS has abandoned the XBOX. Bitter.  It's a slap in the face, IMO.  I have a backlog of a bout 10 games still to be played on it and I will get to them, but between the DS and the PS2 it gets almost no attention now and it's partially because nothing is coming out for it.

As for the pricing, it's weird that they'd go up....stupid.  MS has given up on last gen while PS2 is still cranking.

From BC

Quoting from Gamespot

My xposted thoughts from BC:

well, i like e3 because all the fancy stuff is rolled out at the event and it's sort of a unifying event for all of video gaming.

however, I'm not shedding no tears and I hope that several smaller shows will provide more depth and impact both to the hobby overall and especially to mid to small devs.
