One week only!  The following titles (normally $9.99) are only $4.99:

PAIN
PixelJunk Monsters
High Velocity Bowling
High Stakes on the Vegas Strip: Poker Edition
Rocketmen: Axis of Evil

PAIN is a fun diversion for $5 (and online play, trophy support & a crazy new stage is coming soon), PixelJunk Monsters is pretty much the pinnacle of tower defense games, High Velocity Bowling is fun and High Stakes is sort of a bare-bones Poker experience, but does utilize an audio/video feed using the Eyetoy Camera.

And, as I'm sure 360 owners can attest to, feel free to skip Rocketman biggrin

While you're downloading one (or two, PAIN and PixelJunk Monsters is a fantastic combo) of the games above, queue up the PixelJunk Eden demo.  It's outstanding!

Rocketman is pretty awful.

I already picked up Pain, which is worth about $5 (hopefully they won't charge much for that second map-the game is fun, there's just not enough content).  PJM is worth $20, easily, so $5 is beyond a steal.

I'm curious to hear more opinions on High Velocity Bowling and the poker game.  I was planning to plunge on Bowling for $5, but I wasn't so sure about poker.

Fortunately I play this exclusively on the 360 anyway, so I'll be picking up this DLC. I've recently been getting near the end of the regular campaign, so the new content will extend the quest nicely for me. icon_biggrin

How long did it take to get near the end?

Well, it turns out MS is held back more than just the Bungie announcement.  Alan Wake will be coming to the Tokyo Game Show.  http://www.joystiq.com/2008/07/18/alan-wake-to-show-its-face-at-tokyo-game-show/

This is what I was saying, people.  Sony and Nintendo all but announced it.  Microsoft's last minute pull of the Bungie news showed they got the message.  E3 is dead.

I thought it was fabulous when I first played it and reviewed it for the site (back when we were Console Gold). I loved it and was absolutely blindsided by it, which I love. It's a game that came out of nowhere for me, and just knocked me out. Wonderful times.

Same here.  I don't have a PS3, so dunno how it translates to that, but I loved this game on the PS2.  Seemed to me, at the time anyway, to be very innovative and unique.  It is one of my favorite games for the console.

And, yeah, people talk about it a lot like BG & E and other sleepers.  Since you can buy it for the price of a Big Mac, it might be a good one to try.  No guarantees - it could be a love-it-or-hate-it game, like Ico, but it won't cost you much to see whether you love it or not.

Well, true, but I'm mostly talking about the bundle.  I'm sure the game will sell okay, maybe even well, but if there wasn't cross usage, it would be less (I know I wouldn't be buying it).  But I think they're hoping to sell at least some of the bundles.

True, but I find it hard to imagine that they'll have something significant to release by Christmas and not already have announced it. 

Quote from: The Grue on July 18, 2008, 03:37:11 PM

I keep hoping that they aren't showing something fantastic, but I don't hold out hope for it.

This E3 felt like the Japanese companies were sending a message that this hampered E3 was dead.  Granted, there's not a big time frame left for announcing stuff for Christmas, and I don't know what other events might be coming up, if any (maybe they're trying to highjack Comicon), but part of the reason this seems like the time to make announcements is because that's the way it's been.

Don't get me wrong.  I suspect that there's not a lot more coming, but that's the hope I'm holding out.

Someone said that 80% of Americans are playing pirated games on the DS, which is a figure that cannot be correct, but that number would grow if this convenience were something so easy to come by here.  I would happily do that, too, BUT only for the games I already own.  That way I can cut down on the little baggies I take with the DS, and I might even play games that I'd forgotten about.

My wife still says she can't wait for the new AC game. But I agree, all they did was add a city for shopping? That's really lame. It's ok for your portable version to ape the first game, but it looks like they put no effort into this at all. I think they really shot their first party wad in the first 18 months of the Wii's life, and now they were desperate to get something out for the holidays.

I'm relatively shocked that Nintendo didn't have a bigger surprised title for this holiday season like the rumored Kid Icarus.  Frankly, there really wasn't any need to release SSMB, Mario Kart, and Wii Fit in such close proximity, especially with them selling every piece of hardware they produce anyway.  When they did release them like that, I assumed they had something really big in the wings for a holiday release.  Otherwise they could easily have held back Mario Kart for six months and no one would have batted an eye.

Just because they didn't announce anything at E3 doesn't necessarily mean they don't have anything in store.  On the other hand, that list they released feels a little final.

I just wish this Wiimotion plus thing were coming out now, or at least at the holidays.  Assuming it works with all games (and it would be ridiculous for it not to, but I suppose it's possible), it's going to be hard to keep playing knowing finer control is possible.

Hell the difference between vhs and dvd was less then the difference between dvd and blueray.  Vhs and dvd basically had same picture quality, you paid and switched content due to some "extras".  The difference between dvd and even "upgraded dvd" picture quality and blue ray 1080 is NIGHT and DAY plus you get even more content now with blueray as if it mattered.

Now I think you're just insane.

Seriously, you think VHS was comparable to DVD?  I am utterly flabbergasted by that statement.

I have a 720p HD set.  I hope to get a 1080p set in the future, but for now I can only compare what I've seen on other sets and in stores.  Some titles are nauseatingly clear, yes (seriously, for some people it can be a turn off), but many of them are not.  But here's the point, 1080p HDTVs are still a niche market.  Growing, yes, but not mainstream.  DVDs worked with every TV and made a significant difference in quality, ease of use, durability, bonus content, etc.  Blu Ray on a standard TV is just not that impressive.  By the time most Americans have HDTV sets, we will be heavily into high def digital distribution.

Looks like this was a necessary move on Activision's part to sell any copies of GH:WT at all.

Are you serious?  Look, we all love RB here but let's be honest here- GH3 sold a SHIT-TON of copies, regardless of the vitriol that poured forth from this and many other gaming boards.  It will sell like crazy.




no he's right. i've been seeing tons of people posting they are going to get the stand alone GH4 because of this change. They didn't want to buy any extra instruments. I don't think GH4 is the definitive band game. They are fighting an uphill battle and they need every edge they can. You are comparing apples to oranges here. A one instrument game is vastly different than a 4 one. Activision has also shown to drop the ball on the DLC front as well. This makes these games straight up. You can include a billion features but if i'm playing the same 60 songs. well you're game goes to the shelf very, very fast. HMX can keep it fresh, they've proven it.

So yes. activision needs whatever edge they can to sell more copies, even if it's 1.

Nonsense.  You overestimate the bubble we as the more 'hardcore' gamers live in.  Care for a friendly wager on the outcome?  I'll take anybody on.

You may be right on the bubble aspect, but I think the same casual market that buys GH over RB won't be making that $150 plunge.  The people who buy those high ticket items (and this is the reason I brought up Steel Battalion - I get that they're two very different games) are the more hardcore of gamers (like those of us in the bubble).  I don't think GH:WT will have nearly as huge an impact as the original games did.  I will be interested to see how many copies of the non-bundle game sell, but that full kit is going into an uphill battle, IMO.

Of course, if Activision can get the whole experience out for $80 or even just sub $100, they may have a shot.

EDIT TO ADD:

Also, I think the GH crowd will be intimidated as hell by all of those cymbals.

Exactly.  Blu Ray hasn't really made a dent in the overall movie renting/buying marketplace.  And there's an excellent chance that the next format of choice will be downloadable, skipping right over physical high def movies, well before the next decade arrives
  you guys crack me up.  Go watch a blue ray movie and then say that.  Come on your being silly. I have high def on demand movies and they are CRAP compared to blue ray.  Sorry, its just the truth.

even my wife who like most wives dont really care about pixels and so forth, upon watching our first blue ray a few months actually uttered' "wholly crap" while referring to clarity and almost 3d like image while watching spiderman3 on a big screen in 1080.

In all honesty, I don't think anyone is suggesting that Blu Ray films don't look impressive.  The point is that Blu Ray is far from replacing the existing DVD market.  I am a perfect example of the general unwillingness to abandon existing technology for a "new hotness" that hasn't established a cost-effective position as of yet.  I have two upscaling 400-disc dvd changers loaded with dvds, and while Blu Ray may be an impressive video format, it is more expensive, and I don't believe the upgrade in quality justifies the asking price or complete replacement of an existing library.  


Yeah, TC, I think you're missing the point.  I wasn't talking about quality, I was talking about market share.  Blu Ray won the format war against HD DVD, but DVD is still kicking its ass and may well continue to do so until digital distribution catches up to Blu Ray, quality-wise.  Laser Disc was leaps and bounds better than VHS in terms of quality, but that format died quickly and wound up being just for the elite (perhaps for the simple reason that no one wanted to turn a disc over mid-movie).  Blu Ray could very well go the same way.

I agree.

I expect a GH4 bundle with a drum kit will sell like hotcakes to all of the GH3 owners who already have the guitars.

Yeah, but they're going from a one instrument game to a complete band system in a rough economy.  And word of mouth on Rock Band is incredible.  Basically, GH has abandonded what they're known for in favor of something someone else is doing.  Asking someone to shell out big bucks again for a lot of equipment that would take up even more space in the living room just wouldn't cut it.  I don't think it will sell like crazy.  I think it'll sell slowly.  If it's good (better than RB and RB2), then it may hope to have the slow but steady growth RB seems to have.   Let's face it, these games are pricing themselves out.

Think about Steel Battalion.  $200 for a cool looking cockpit simulator.  Didn't sell well at all.  Looked cool as hell.  People wanted it, but no one bought it.  Part of the reason is that it worked with 2 games total in its lifetime.  If there had been a bunch of games from different companies that used the controller, it would have sold more.  Maybe not like hotcakes, but it would have gained a slow momentum.

Honestly, there may be room for a bunch of games with, essentially, $20 guitars, but games with massive equipment that cost $150+, not so much.

Seems we're all in the same boat (except that I don't really care about Metallica, but I see why that would be a big seller).  Looks like this was a necessary move on Activision's part to sell any copies of GH:WT at all.

Hopefully, they've studied what worked for RB and didn't for GH and made the right changes, but I have a feeling they will have bitten off more than they can chew.

Unfortunately as good of a Blu-Ray player as it is, Sony needs to sell games to make money on the machine.  People buying it just as a movie player aren't doing them many favors.
I dont work or own Sony so what do I care about them, I care about me, and for the price, Ps3 is by far the best blue ray player in the market. 
 As for the market, I find it hilarious that people are worked up about one title, when Sony just won a format war with hundreds of billions of dollars over the next decade.
  So you are not gonna buy the PS3 for FF13, so your arent going to watch high def movies for the next decade?  You're gonna go pay 400 bucks for a blueray only player which is worse than PS3?

comeon, sony won where it counted for them, and i I can get a great next gen movie player, and a decent console for 400 bucks, all the better.



TC, while a part of me is glad for you that you feel you got your money's worth, I'm not entirely convinced that BD is going to be replacing DVD. Even before HD-DVD/BD wars, there was debate as to whether the next optical media format was going to get market foothold.

MS has definitely thrown their lot in with digital distribution instead of formats, and to be honest I prefer watching HD movies from TV then buying them for what I consider to be insane prices.

Exactly.  Blu Ray hasn't really made a dent in the overall movie renting/buying marketplace.  And there's an excellent chance that the next format of choice will be downloadable, skipping right over physical high def movies, well before the next decade arrives.

Wow, this thread has just about sold me on getting this game.  Bullwinkle's comment is exactly how I feel about CIV games.  I have yet to buy the console version because of that fact.  I just don't like long civ games anymore because I don't have the time dedicated for 2+hour sessions.  I am about to pull the trigger.  Thanks for the impressions.

Please let me know how it goes for you.  I would have bought it this week, but my Best Buy has turned into the worst store as far as getting games in.  I had a great set of coupons, too.

That and Nintendo LOVES BC (unlike the other two companies). Yet another reason why the DS (and Wii) sold so well - 100% BC with the older generation.

I love that I can play GBA games on the DS. I think I've used my GBA slot for about half my gaming on my DS.

But, eventually, they do lose it.  The DS is not combatible with the old GB games, for example (though the original GBA was, IIRC, but later versions dropped this, too).  I don't think it's time for that yet, but Nintendo does like to keep cranking out new versions of their handhelds.

Do you guys even look at these songs on guitar?  icon_lol

In my case I kind of got "stuck" with the drums.  My wife likes to sing and most of the friends that we play with like to play the guitar/bass.  When I first started with the drums I was TERRRRRRIBLE.  I've now come to enjoy drums more than guitar.

My guitar skills have regressed big time as a result.  Last night I failed out on Welcome Home. I used to be able to 5 star that song in my sleep.  icon_frown


That happened to me a few times, too.  The drums were definitely the least popular instrument in the house.  Then I found out about the whole version number thing, and it turned out I had one of the first versions to be made.  I did an easy swap (they just extended the deadline on hardware), and the difference is night and day.  Turns out, I can actually play the drums.  I was so excited for the drum kit to come out, then really disappointed when I found out I was just terrible.  I'm still not brilliant, but at least I can do it, and when I miss a note, it's my fault.

I think it has to do with Nintendo (and maybe Sony) saving bigger announcements for other events as they downplay E3.  It just doesn't have the impact anymore, and the Japanese companies are showing how little they care about it.  As a result, MS had to pull something back for a future date.

Just a guess.

I think it's more about Nintendo not caring about E3 than being complacent.  They've been saying for weeks now that they planned no big reveals for E3 and that everything would be announced before it. 

That said, I think the Wiimotion thing is fantastic.  I hope they release a new version of the Wiimote with that built in.  I also hope it's not game specific and can work across all games.

The big negative for me is the drop of the GBA slot, though I rarely use it for GBA games, I like the idea of having it available.  More importantly, I use it for the rumble strip constantly.  If they add rumble support, I'd think about it (of course, I wouldn't be able to play Guitar Hero: On Tour).

Next month. 

EDIT- Oops, Dreamshadow beat me. 

Also, the demo process is not the same as the game development.  They have to pull a piece of the game, then get it into shape for distribution, but at the time they pull it, there's still a lot of focused polishing being done on the retail release.  Yes, the point of the demo is to get people to buy the game, but every demo I can remember says something along the lines of "May not indicate quality of final retail release" or some such.  Except the XBLA demos, of course.

I mean seriously, including bugs in a demo? Wowzers.

Demos are where I expect to find bugs.  They're not supposed to be polished, finished product.  I expect the framrate issues we're hearing about will get ironed out before release.  If they don't, then that's a big-time gripe.

How is it going to verify that you actually own RB1 and didn't just borrow the disc from a friend?  ninja

And I just realized at no point in the preorder process did it ask me what console I wanted it for.  I guess we can assume it's compatible with both 360 and PS3?

No, it means you got the default Commodore 64 version.

I also picked it up when I got a PS3 and liked it a lot.  There were other PS2 games that got more attention from me, so I only got so far into it, but I do intend to go back.

I was interested in We Love Golf, but the reviews haven't been great.

I will get The Who pack for sure, though.

On VC and Wiiware this week are Donkey Kong 3 and Ninja Commando along with Major League Eating: The Game.

And XBLA has Coffetime Crosswords.  Also, Puzzle Quest drops in price from 1200 to 800 points!

so, are they going to be selling the 60 gig HD's separately without it costing 100+ bucks?

I think the rumor was that the 60 Gig stand-alone drive would be $100, and the 120 Gig stand-alone would drop to $150.  Not sure what happens to the remaining 20 Gigs floating around, but they may price drop them until they're gone as well.

MS is off their rocker with the price on these things.  Almost as much so as non-PS3 Blu-ray players...

MS should offer the 20 gig for free (plus shipping!) to everyone who bought a Core 360, then eliminate the need for 360 games to work without the HD.  Not a lot of people would bother getting their free drive, believe it or not, and they wouldn't need to feel obligated to make that requirement any more.

Does the Chain of Memories GBA game take place between the two?

Yes.  It picks up right after the end of KH1, and establishes the basis of the story for KH2.

That's what I figured.  Now, even if it is only CoM, I still will have to wait.  Actually, I kind of hope it is CoM.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through the first Kingdom Hearts.  I guess I won't be getting KH II until I find out about this.  Hopefully we'll hear at E3, but Nintendo seems to be saying there will be no surprise announcements.
