Pixies "Doolittle" album is up next week!  Hooray!

Actually, it's up the week of the 24th, which is the week after next.

http://www.rockband.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55958

14 tracks...  eek

$18.99 (1520 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360) for the Album or $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360) per track.

The Joystiq article I read just made the correction.

I have to confess that I don't know much about the Pixies except for Wave of Mutilation, which I don't care for.  I'm definitely out on the whole album.  I may get a few of the individual tracks depending on how the previews sound.

Some of the Pixies' stuff is a little too rough for my taste.  I picked up a greatest hits album a little while back and was surprised by how much I didn't like.  But "Doolittle" is close to perfection.

Sessler makes an excellent point in the sense that, one of these days, the media is going to use a series of clips of 10 year olds calling people fag and dropping the N word over and over.  It'll take them all of 10 minutes to compile.  And then everyone's argument that video games are not damaging our youths will be right out the window.  Sadly, maybe they're even right in this sense.  The violence isn't a problem, it's being desensitized to hate-speech that is.

I think there should be a movement.  Microsoft should start it or get behind it.  Call it Auto-Kicking.  The very second some spouts some of this garbage, they get kicked.  If the movement picks up enough momentum, it would be doable, but it has to be out there as a concept so that folks will know why it's happening to them.  Basically, tossing this crap around needs to be made Not Cool.  Not being allowed to play will have that effect.


That's a huge logical leap- not your assertion- but the conclusion. How many games have you played that use the word nigger and fag? I've played very few...actually I don't know that I've played any.  So it's not the games- it's the people themselves.

And again, i must have some kind of magical wires into XBL, cause I very rarely encounter people spewing hatred and bigotry. 

It's not a logic leap.  It's semantics.  When I used the term "Video Games," it was intended to be understood that I was talking about the hobby, i.e. playing video games, or even the culture of video gamers.  If you think for a half second that news agents and parent groups would make the distinction, "Oh, it's not those poor video games' fault, it's the people who play them," then you're in for a shock.

One night while playing with some GTers (unfortunately I can't remember who they were, although I'm pretty sure pr0ner was present), we went up against a number of fairly offensive homophobes.  While playing, rather than calling them on their idiocy and how archaic the term "fag" has become, I instead began hitting on some of the players during game loading screens so he and all of his friends could hear.

Homophobe: "I kicked your ass, you F-ing fag!"

Me: "You have a pretty voice."

Homophobe: "F&*K YOU!  F-ing fag!"

Me: "Seriously.  You sound like you must work out.  Have you ever experimented with another man?"

Homophobe talking with other online friends: "Dude, is he serious?  What an F-ing fag."

<<game starts, we win, back to lobby for next game to load>>

Homophobe: "F-ing fags must have cheated.  Using pussy guns.  I hate fags.  These guys are fags."

Me: "Hey, <<insert homophobe's gamertag>>, it's nice to hear your voice again.  I like your voice.  Didn't you say earlier that you like to work out?  I work out, too.  I have tattoos.  Do you like tattoos?  I can tell by your voice that you'd like mine.  Do you want to private chat?"

Homophobe: "F#$k you, man.  I ain't no fag.  You're a fag. 

Me: "I like when you say dirty words.

<<game starts, we win again, back to lobby for next game to load>>

Homophobe: "Dude, what the f#$k?  F-ing fags, WTF man?"

Me: "And so we meet again, <<insert homophobe's gamertag>>.  Why didn't you accept my private chat invite?  Worried about what your friends will think when they find out how you look at them?  They don't understand you.  But I would.

Homophobe: "Dude, this fag won't leave me alone.  F%#k you, fag.  Stop talking to me!  I'm not a fag!"

Me: "That's okay.  But I might help you change your mind.

<<entire homophobe team logs out>>

I've never heard pr0ner and any other GTers in attendance laugh so hard in my life.  I can't remember if SkyStride or Fuzzball were there as well, but we all laughed for quite a while after that.   icon_lol 

If you let it bother you, you wind up playing right into their hands.  But if you play along, usually they'll get too uncomfortable and you have an opportunity to have a laugh at their expense.  I just picked one particular person from the opposing team who seemed a bit too vocal with his homophobic vulgarity, and rather than fight back, I instead made him so uncomfortable in front of his friends that he quit. 

Don't fuck with the Sugarcookie.  Fabulous

That's beautiful and very Pete Rock.

To be honest, I found that commercial horribly annoying.  "We're Extreme 2 The MaX!!!!Roxxor!!!" was an terribly stupid selling point the first time it was tried back in the 80's and it gets dumber every year since it's been beat to death.  However, they scored a direct hit with all the crap taken out of GTA4 that fanboi's try to pretend never existed - Yes, as a matter of fact, I LOVED stealing the fire truck, and the ambulance, and the Taxi...you get the idea.  It would be great if SR2 becomes an comparable contender against GTA - competition only means the developers try harder to make a better game (See "Rock Band").

But...but...that does roxxor.

I think they're doing the right thing with this ad.

I just hope the story is good for Saints Row 2.

I just downloaded a batch of them, and I really wish you could disable the theme's sound.  I know you can turn off dashboard sounds totally, but I like having the little default ticking sound.  Some of the themes I found looked nice, but had loud, obnoxious sounds that play constantly. 

Agreed.  I did see a lot of themes with NO SOUND VERSION written after them.  Maybe there are alternate versions of the ones you picked.

There isn't a site like this for avatars is there?

Your emoticon and post struck me as smarmy, but whatever.

Your second paragraph sort of makes my point doesn't it? When your developing games for the mass market, surrounded by SO MUCH competition, are you going to bank on JRPG games, which we both agree are appealing to a small market, or, are you gonna try and develop say,a game like Resistance? Gears of War? Call of Duty?

With regards  to me "now knowing one", I was referring to my circle of gaming friends, not people I am  members  with on websites.

But your circle of friends are your friends because you have similar tastes.  Saying you don't know who plays JRPGs and saying therefore, no one is playing JRPGs is faulty logic. 


Chaz, I wanted to point out that my PS3 had the exact same grounding problem and was solved the same way.  Not sure why this hasn't been more of an issue for Sony.

This completely boggles my mind. You have 80 games from previous generations that you don't want to lose the ability to play? I can understand a handful of games, but 80?

And, see, this is why this is always a thing.  You don't have that many games that you want to play, but someone else does. 

Not saying you were making a criticism, m, but this kind of thinking leads many people to dismissing the importance of BC to others.

There is no way in HELL I could have any fun trying to focus on playing 4 games at once!

My gf dragged me to the local Bingo hall years ago, and it was damn difficult trying to play four cards at once. I even won $50, but never went back. It was just too difficult to keep up.
 paranoid

I thought I'd feel the same, but they've done a remarkable job balancing the distractions.  Some require more attention than others.  The one that looks like Homestar jumping, for example, constantly causes me to keep an eye on it.  The Hogan's Alley game can go for a bit, but then you've got to take out a bunch in a row.  The baseball one only asks you to hit every once in a while and the basketball one gives you twenty seconds to take a shot (so far it's been a great relief, giving time to take a breath).

But keep in mind that each game is essentially asking you to do only one thing.  If you were to play a single game for an extended period, it would be mind numbing.  Even in the Homestar one, you only have to keep the corner of your eye open for rocks and pits.  Then you jump.  You can also jump for jewels that are higher up, if you want.  That's the whole game.  Just jumping by clicking anywhere on the panel.  The baseball one is a click anywhere to swing.  Yes, you have to time it right, but there are sound cues and they seem to be just the right amount of forgiving.  You also get three misses per player before you lose a "life" in baseball (you lose a life instantly if the Homestar look-a-like falls into a pit or a rock).

It's extremely not complicated.  Like Warioware, as EddieA mentioned, but even simpler, since your repeating the mini game for a while.  A rhythm develops.

It's great for quick hits.  It does feel intense, though, so I'm not sure I could play it for extended periods.  I'm also only onto the second tier, so things could get ugly, but I'm enjoying it a lot now.

This weeks VC releases are Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa [NES] and Dig Dug aka Taizo Hor [NES]. Both are Japanese imports that were never released in N.A. There were other Dig Dug games released in N.A., but for some reason this one never made it's way over here. Nobody I know has ever played it or heard of it. I've been told today by the classic gaming gurus at work that Bio Miracle Bokutta Upa is a NES masterpiece. I'm a bit skeptical because the main protaginist is a baby prince that repels enemies by shaking his rattle; OK. Apparently the game oozes charm that an adult can appreciate, but I've been told it's a must buy for kids because the play mechanics are fun and excellent. It's also supposed to be one of the better NES titles for graphics and sound.
This weeks WiiWare is My Pokemon Ranch which no doubt doesn't needs no introduction or explanation.

I doubt I'll be purchasing anything this week because I traded in for Lego Indy this weekend and I have many a PC game on the go.

I spend more time playing PS2 games on my PS3 than current gen games.

Microsoft hasn't updated their BC list since November (it used to be every three months), so to say they've been regularly updating it is, sadly, not true any more.

I find the BC issue to be increasingly infuriating.  People who don't think it's important rationalize that it's not important for others because it's not important for them.  This is happening on the individual and the corporate level.

From what I've seen in the Joe and Jane Average community, most people assume these machines can play old games.  With the economy going the way it is, I'm sure that people would love to buy a system, get a game for their kid, then get a bunch of used games for the same price as a new one.  Hell, even if the economy wasn't in the crapper, I think people would love to do that.

For myself, in an increasingly cluttered TV cabinet, the idea of adding another console is just not going to work.  My wife still glares at my original Xbox from time to time.  I was able to get a Wii because the 'cube could get moved to the basement (waiting to be sold, someday).  I was able to get a PS3 because it became the default DVD player.  If I'd had a PS2, I would not have been able to get one without BC for sure.  As it is, I had to hunt down a 40GB model after quite a bit of searching when I was ready to buy one.  There was no way I would ever buy one if it didn't have BC.

To me, running around to find a health pack takes you away from what you're supposed to be doing, whereas hunkering down to recover has some semblance to being in a real battle.  Sure you can't recover health after being shot in reality, but in a frantic battle, you'd have to get to cover and refocus (or reload) from time to time.  I see the recharging health thing as a means of getting your bearings.

There's also the fact that I hope never to be in a real-life gun battle and am not looking for the realsitic experience in gaming either.

Since I've never, ever finished a Metal Gear Solid game (though I did finish the original Metal Gear, back in the day), I am taking a pass on 4.  I made at least 4 attempts to finish the first MGS (including the 'cube game).  I got about two hours into the second.  I never even tried the third.

I've been hearing good things about Blast Works, so I may give that a go.

Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa and Dig Dug are on VC.  My Pokemon Ranch is on Wiiware.  Out on all, I think.

You can turn on V-Sync in the options menu.  It helps that considerably, but it doesn't run as smoothly in some sections, obviously.

Gotta say, I'm loving this game.  At the start of the week, I was certain I'd be avoiding it and getting Ninja Gaiden II.  Now I have flip-flopped (though I will almost certainly get NG II at a later date).

Imagine playing an old Activision game.  Okay, now imagine playing four old Activision games at the same time.  That's Arcadia Remix. 

Awesome, frantic, yet simple game.  You only use a mouse to click on the various screens and cause stuff to happen.



I got it from Big Fish Games when they were having a sale.  Maybe somewhere else has it cheaper now.  Go find a demo.

These things that make the triggers more trigger-like would make me even more frustrated that every damn PS FPS used the shoulder buttons for firing.

Apparently, it has to do with bad sectors on some HDs (there have been some issues with the PC version, as well).

Codemasters said a patch should be out in the next few weeks, if not sooner.

I played the first mission today (and am tackling the next in about ten minutes).  A lot of fun.  Definitely more of the same, but in a good way.  My only complaint so far is that I wish they used Indy's distinctive punch sound effect for punches.

There are supposedly big time lockups happening with the 360 version.  I'm really anxious for the game, so I may get it anyway and wait for a patch.

I have 2 questions, 'cause I'm more on the fence than I thought I'd be.  How long are the levels, and how easy is Easy?  If the game is harder than Black or Sigma on Ninja Dog, them I'm out.

and Bullwinkle...yeah we do say naughts and crosses....why the hell you call it Tic Tac Toe i have no idea

'Cause we're the greatest country on the frickin' planet is why!

Quote from: metallicorphan on June 04, 2008, 07:23:45 PM

...not sure if you guys had terrorhawks in the 80s(same makers of thunderbirds,stingray,captain scarlet etc)..naughts and crosses always remind me of that as they always played a game at the end of the show during the end credits

Thunderbirds are go!  We did have those shows, but you had to search for 'em.

I actually do think that x being cross in Europe has a lot to do with XMB being Cross Media Bar, BTW.

Good review Ron, I guess those dummies telling me I was stupid in the demo thread for thinking this game had potential can SUCK IT DOWN now.

Where's my straw...

I'll admit that I thought the demo was lame, but I stand by the fact that they picked horrible levels that are not representative of the game, from what I understand.

Hey, isn't the X called a Cross in England?  As in Naughts and Crosses (Tic Tac Toe in the States).

Man, you guys are weird, 'cause you're not the same as us.

*ALERT*

If you're in the Boston area, and interested in RB, shoot me a PM.  I have an opportunity that may be of interest to you.

Weird you mention this. Last night I had a dream that you put in a plug for me, and I got hired by Harmonix. smile

If you were in the Boston area, interested, and qualified, I would do that for you.  However, this may not be that moment.  smile

How "Boston Area" are we talking?  I'm in Connecticut, and it's a very familiar drive...
