Oh, and some Tragically Hip. Maybe some INXS. (did they have bass, or just guitar, drums and boards?)
They had bass . . . I even remember his name . . . Gary Gary Beers, I think . . .
And they had a sax . . .
How about the below for an INXS pack ? . . .
Devil Inside
New Sensation
Listen like Thieves?

I would pay extra for an INXS pack.  Although I'd prefer some of their earlier stuff be on there, too.  Maybe "Don't Change" or "The One Thing."

Yes!   I was working last weekend and Devil Inside came on my player.   My thoughts exactly.   This would be killer.

I may also be getting Furu Furu Park, which was supposed to come last week.

Is that multi platform? I saw it listed at the local game store yesterday but it didn't have a platform listed next to the title.

It's for the Wii.

No More Heroes has already received some stellar reviews, so yes.

Endless Ocean has been decently received, too, and I am in the mood for relaxing exploration (plus my 4 year old might like it).

Advance Wars is something I always buy and rarely play enough, but I'll be hopping in again.

I'm interested in Pirates, too, but not sure if it'll work on my laptop. Is there a fee?

I may also be getting Furu Furu Park, which was supposed to come last week.

The Burnout Paradise demo (and developer) made me angry, but the reviews have been quite good.  I just have a feeling I'll be looking for things to piss me off if I buy it.  And I still don't get how "a new race on every corner" is going to hold out after you've been playing for a long time.  It's going to eventually be in the same situation as the demo, hunting for the couple of corners with new races.

I'm still in love with the game, but part of the reason is that I'm going back to it after a month or so when I have a nice, big block of time.  It stays fresh that way.

Not looking forward to the end fights, but I'm building it up in my head enough that it'll probably not be as bad as what I'm anticipating.  Or, now that I've said that, it'll be worse.

Chaos Theory felt a little off to me.  I prefer Pandora Tomorrow.  But, man, Double Agent just about ruined the series for me.  I still haven't finished it.  And, honestly, the way Conviction seems to be shaping up, I may be done.

Of course, knowing me, I'll crank through the rest of DA, grumpily, and get Conviction anyway, but this series took a huge, long fall as far as I'm concerned.

BTW, Teggy, I love platformers, too.

I don't even know if there is any interest in a Halo RTS. It's an odd branch to take the IP.  An RPG, on the other hand, could be monumental...but only if it's written by someone outside of Bungie.

Agreed.  While I will probably get Halo Wars, I don't think mass audiences respond to RTS anymore.  Even though they've made great strides, it's still an awkward fit on consoles.  I remember thinking that HW would be innovative until I saw the video.  It's exactly like every other RTS game out there.

Don't forget the FPS's on consoles were not that popular until Halo came out either.


Perfect Dark, Medal of Honor, TimeSplitters, oh what was that other one...Silverorb or something...

None of those could be called big sellers on consoles though.  Sure there were FPS's on consoles but it was much more of a niche genre.  Getting the controls right was one key to Halo's success.  And the controls will be the make or break for Halo Wars.

Personally the only console FPS I ever played before Halo was Goldeneye.

I don't think that's accurate.  None may have been as big as Goldeneye, but Perfect Dark sold nearly 3 million copies and the other two sold well enough to garner multiple sequels (I couldn't find specific numbers, though).

All that aside, though, unless they make significant changes from what I saw in the last video, they haven't innovated at all.

Even if they do improve it, C&C 3, which is very well done, IMO, hasn't even broken half a million in sales on the 360.  There's just no interest in RTS on a console, no matter how well they pull it off.

Wii:
Furu Furu Park - I have a weird interest in these mini game collections, and this one is chock full of bizarre Japanese flavor, but it's probably lame
Nitrobike - I've heard this is fun in an Excite Truck kind of way, so maybe
Samurai Warriors: KATANA - I doubt this will be good, but if it pulls out some good reviews I might give it a glance

DS:
Nanostray 2 - the first one was close but no cigar for most reviews, if the second one gets closer, I could be tempted

PC:
Battlefield 2142 Deluxe Edition is also coming at the end of this week, apparently.  I may be getting that.

Unfortunately my guitar broke so its being replaced.

I've been doing the same thing.  Except I was waiting to see if they'd release combo packs for some of the songs.

I have no problem buying Rock Band songs vs GHIII tracks.  I guess the 60 points difference in song packs made enough of a difference.

I've had the game since it came out, but was saving it for the time when nothing was coming out, and I needed something "new."  That time came sooner than I expected.  I played through a bunch of levels and had a good time with it.

Basically, it's a good shooter that came out during a time when there were a bunch of great shooters.

I don't think the PSP will win any month any year.  The DS is WAY too far out in front.

I do think the 360 will win at least one month, but still be in the minority.

I predict that I will also have a PS3 in the next 18 months, if only for Blu-Ray, but I will not be a Sony fanboi.

I predict that Microsoft will attempt to join the motion-sensing crowd with about the same success as Sony, further solidifying Nintendo's brilliance in this area.  Or, MS will realize that they're about to do just that and pull out.

I predict that PS3 will have no system seller until September of this year, but they will have a great Christmas.  EVEN IF Microsoft works out Blu-Ray support.

I predict Microsoft will have Blu-Ray support by September.

I predict Purge will not say anything for the rest of the year as dead-on as

I play Xbox games once or twice a month, sometimes for extended periods.  I do the same with Gamecube games.

I have two neighbors who bought Wiis recently.  One of the things they liked about them was that they could buy GC games for their kids cheap (although they didn't like that they had to get other controllers).

I do think it's a factor.  Then again, I think MS feel like they've met that factor.  They can trumpet BC to the average consumer and not be lying.
13664  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 BC winding down on: January 11, 2008, 05:05:59 AM
The MS BS is cranking up.

They pull this stunt every once in a while to see what kind of outrage it gets.  If it's a justifiably low amount, they'll probably stop the program.  Seems like a weird time, though, when they just added Xbox Originals to the mix.  It may be because they'd rather have people pay for games again rather than play games they already own.

On a side note, the 360 recently borked a bunch of my saves for BC titles.  I'd just put a lot of work into the original GTA III, too.

Color us all shocked you love a bad game.

Who said this is a bad game Rage, uh Calvin?  It's averaging 75% for the PC and 88% for the 360 on Gamerankings and it has not even come out yet for the 360!  Besides, I couldn't care less about reviews anyway.  Like I said a billion times before I buy and play what is fun to me.

Ok, lets get over something here. "Accidentally" calling me by a forum handle I haven't used in two years is not funny and it does nothing to prove your point. You are infatuated with a fictional video game character from possibly the worst 360 game released last year. this game, while averaging 75% on the PC, is from all evidence, a complete simplification and dumbing down of the experience on the 360 (perhaps you should read the impressions above). My guessing that this will turn out to be a bad game are grounded in the previews I have read and the evidence I have seen. Your predeliction of finding the best from mediocrity does nothing to change the fact that most discerning gamers will indeed think that this game is bad.

Actually, I kinda like it too  paranoid banned

Now you are just trying to cause trouble  ninja

Sorry, Calvin, I liked the demo also.  Certainly more than Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom.  I think I'll be getting it soon after release.

I disagree.  At least Yoda and Vader have sword-type weapons.  Spawn's axe felt tacked-on.  He has a modern day story line and attitude that was jarring.  Not to say Yoda and Vader aren't jarring as well, I'm just saying they fit better than Spawn.

I'm interested, but I'm pissed at Nintendo for not allowing us to use the SD card to play games.  I'm out of space (I'm aware that I can download them or move them to the SD card and move them back, but that's just a pain in the ass).  I wrote them an e-mail saying I was done with VC.  No response, of course.

Security and nothing more, IMHO. Once they allow using the SD card to play games, it'll only be a matter of time before the security gets cracked and allows people to play ANY NES/SNES/Genesis/TG16/NEO GEO on their Wii assuming they have the game's ROM somewhere on their HD.

And frankly, that's too much money for Nintendo to have just thrown away. On that note, I wonder how much cash Nintendo makes on all their VC titles...

The Wii's been cracked anyway.  And you can move the games freely from the SD Card to the Wii harddrive, so what's to prevent someone from tinkering with it and then moving it back?  It just removes a step, not the problem.

I'd think twice about KUF:COD, guys.

The only positive review is from Play "We Love Everything" Magazine.

65% on GameRankings, and that's with Play's 80%.

Harvey Birdman isn't doing much better.  Also at 65%, but it's only one review.  However, the PSP version got 50% from Worth Playing.  They said:
Quote
...while Phoenix Wright is a clever and well designed adventure game that combines humor with puzzle-solving, Harvey Birdman is a hollow-feeling experience that, while occasionally humorous, leaves one wishing he could just watch the episodes on TV instead. This game would be good for fans of the show only, and even they might want to be cautious, due to the title's gameplay brevity and lack of replayability.
