I actually just picked up Yakuza at EB for $12.  A bunch of stores in my area had them, 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.

Jesus ... is anyone in here not a drummer?  saywhat

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.

No kidding. Why the hell would they not let Bungie make their announcement? It's not like there's anything else much going on at E3 this week (seriously; this has been the most tepid E3 overall I've ever followed yet).

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.

Wow. Quite a stinking shitbomb from Nintendo today. Looks like it only took 18 months for them to become complacent again. At least my wife will be thrilled with the Animal Crossing Wii game.

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.

I liked the demo, too.  My biggest complaint was that I only got one shot at the three doors with skill boosting battles inside.  By the time I figured out what I needed to do, I was locked out of them.
13089  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New DS Lite? on: July 15, 2008, 02:04:22 PM
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).

Since when are demos suppose to be betas? Demos are to get people to BUY your game. The game is set launch in like what, 3, 4 months?

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.

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.

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.

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.

They might.  My Costco is very liberal about this kind of stuff.  Two months doesn't seem like a crazy time difference.  Just go in and ask at the member counter (you'll get better luck in person than on the phone, I think).  If you have your receipt, you'll have a better chance.
13102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft plays stupid - doesn't drop price of the console on: July 13, 2008, 02:18:40 PM
It's a shifty, but brilliant move, akin to Apple's "cheaper" 3G iPhone.  The general public thinks they're getting an amazing deal on the new phone, but the hike in service charges and fees more than make up the difference.  For the 360, most people won't know about the bigger, regularly priced console coming, they'll just see the cheaper 360, and those'll move.  Of course, I think the general public also probably doesn't need the much bigger hard drive, so it may be a win-win in the end.

played up to the first real dungeon, & i'm liking it a lot more than i thought i would. nice to see all the main characters from chocobo tales (the best ds game hardly anyone's played) - i didn't realize the games would be so directly linked (having just played mgs4, the question has to be asked: has anyone ever seen cid & otacon in the same room? they look, talk, & even pretty much function alike. weird....)...

kinda glad the game's a little more forgiving than shiren, which i never felt up for. should be a nice break between sessions of ffta2 smile ...


edit: played thru 2 dungeons, & this game'll do just fine. the whole lost memory thing is a clever & nicely disturbing hook to center the dungeon exploring around...

I did get a big smile on my face when I realized the farm was the exact same layout as the one from Chocobo Tales.

Too Human is going to be the Microsoft's Haze.  I remember when I had high hopes for Haze....then the demo arrived.

I agree completely, except for the part about having had high hopes for Haze.
I hope I'm wrong (i.e. that this is another Assassin's Creed and not another Haze),
but I have a feeling the demo will kill interest in the game completely.

the biggest killer is the game can be finished in roughly 10 hours. 60 bucks for 10 hours. mmmm, no.

And the great quality over quantity debate continues.

Let me give you my side:  You're wrong. icon_wink

Now, I'm not sure about the quality of Too Human, but I would much rather pay $60 for an amazing 8 - 10 hour game over a 60 hour game that I'll never finish that isn't very compelling.  Hell, 10 hours seems to be standard length these days.  Truth be told, I would probably have paid $60 for Portal, the most amazing game of last year, IMO.  That game was only around 4 hours, but it was pure gold (and I played it twice and may do so again).

"Comfortably Numb" came on in the car today, and there is no way that song would work for Rock Band.  It's a great tune, but it's way way way too laid back.  Glad to hear the list isn't real.

Of course, the Scissor Sisters version of "Comfortably Numb" is the exact opposite...

Never played Shiren, so I can't say.  They're not frustrating in frequency or effect, it's just that you either can't avoid them at all (unless you get lucky), or you have to kick with every single step.  Now that I'm talking about it, though, I do recall hearing that there may be abilities that help with the traps.

I picked it up yesterday and played for an hour and a half or so.  This is a very brief first impressions take.

I was underwhelmed at first, for sure, but it kicked in pretty quickly.  You know what you're getting, basically, if you've played this type of game before, but it does seem simplified.  I do like the idea of each dungeon being someone's blocked memory; that adds a certain extra level to the experience.  I've always liked the idea of these mystery dungeons, but they usually become too much too soon.  This one definitely eases you in.  I wish it would play close to the level where it is now, personally, only increasing slightly over time.  I think most mystery dungeon fans will be frustrated with the ease of it early on.

The graphics are nice, for the Wii, but the recorded dialogue is just awful.  Mostly because of these awkward, long pauses between snippets.

I'm not sure if this is common to the genre, but the invisible traps are incredibly irritating.  Basically, they're asking you to take a step then kick for every single square until you get the idea of the map's layout.

Overall, it is fun once it gets underway.  If the dungeons stayed the size of the first couple, it would be a great pick up and play game, but I have a feeling they'll become increasingly massive in size.  I will play it, but I have a hunch it won't be one I ever get around to finishing.

Schizoid:

Quote
“Schizoid” is a fast and furiously paced action game with simple, intuitive gameplay. Billed as “the most co-op game ever,” reflexes and smarts are key but sharp teamwork pays off even more! Ram your way through waves of glowing enemies: single player with an AI bot helper; or co-op multiplayer with two players offline or online through Xbox LIVE. “Schizoid” features over 120 challenging levels of mayhem that will appeal to casual and hardcore gamers alike. For the brave player, “Schizoid” offers the intense Uberschizoid game mode, in which a single player controls two different ships at the same time.

Fun fun.

Both of these could be good.  The golf game looks nice, at least.

Thanks, everyone, it was a lone leech. 

Wasted a lot of food on that sucker.

Glad I found out about it, too, because right afterwards I had to do my first bout of swimming and was covered in them with every dip!

Read an article that said the guy responsible for Led Zeppelin's catalog (not the band members apparently?) isn't comfortable with the whole 'video game use' of their music. Of course they have no problem using it for bad commercials, etc.

On the other hand Pete Townshend actually plays RB with his family and helped them pick the songs for the Who pack.

It's not the use of the songs, it's the use of the Masters, which is relatively understandable.  It also bodes better for Rock Band than GH, because at least the guys in Harmonix are real musicians with a love for music.  If anyone can convince them that they'll treat the tracks with the utmost respect, it's Harmonix.
