Godzilla: Unleashed was unleashed to stores today.

Unfortunately, after a couple minutes play time, it's pretty much the same game as Melee and StE  crybaby

The Wii version is still showing as next week.  Where did you find it?

I enjoy charm and easy combat.  My only question is, given that I never played FFXII on the PS2, will I be utterly lost?
13724  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: November 26, 2007, 11:09:08 PM
I picked it up (using my GHIII controller - I'll get the drums in February when they arrive).  Man, it's going to be hard to go back to GHIII after playing this.  Superior in just about every way. 

Personally, I love the easier challenge of it, too.  I missed one note in "Should I Stay..." on the first playthrough.  One freakin' note.  That was immensely satisfying.  Of course, I kept playing, trying to get a perfect, but it hasn't happened yet.

So far, I like the track list overwhelmingly over GHIII (and GHII).  I can't think of a single set in the earlier games that didn't have a clunker in it.  I like every single song in the first two sets in Rock Band.

Really, my only complaint is that the footage of the band playing is exactly the same every playthrough of a song.  That got kind of annoying going for the perfect on that Clash song.

I'm not sure why you would think that the company would want inferior employees.
That doesn't make much sense. Now if you want to argue they don't do enough to keep
their best people, that's a different discussion altogether.

They may not WANT inferior employees but they certainly have not built a business model that attracts quality people, its called wage efficiency. GameStop pays low wages so they generally get inexperienced employees, higher internal theft, high turnover rate, and everything else that comes with paying inefficient wages. The only reason you get some decent GameStop/EB locations is because some people are passionate about what they do and love working with video games, which is probably your own personal case, is it not?

Take myself for example. Directly prior to taking a store management position at Gamestop, I was an assistant manager at Walgreens. The starting pay for the store manager position at GS was less than what I was making at Walgreens as an assistant manager. However, I was willing to take the pay cut because, as I reasoned with anyone who couldn't understand, I would rather work with video games than groceries and bathroom supplies for less pay any day.

Exactly. 

Also, though, I didn't say they wanted inferior employees.  They are extremely satisfied with the shift to non-gamers as employees.  They want superior salespeople who could push any unnecessary upgrade on uncaring mothers buying "That Nintendo Thing" for their kids.  The corporation doesn't care about people who can go on for pages about games they love and stores they don't, as long as Jane Checkbook keeps coming in and buying Replacement Guarantees.  They can train uncaring monkeys to sell like that, but they can't retrain the intelligent people who care about gaming.  Ergo, bye bye good stores and words like "Goobye and thanks for coming," and hello "Bring in your trades."

It would be fewer consoles, but speaking in an unquanitifiable, which the post seems to be doing, less is acceptable.

We may just have to agree to disagree on that part. From my POV, the company takes tremendous pride
in their sales force, and the passion that it has for games. They actually spent considerable time talking
about this very thing at this year's conference.


Well, what are they going to say, "We hate our customers?"

Drug companies trumpet how much they're changing customer's lives at every single national meeting I've been to.  They rarely talk about how much damage they do in third world countries or how they're recent products may have killed some people, except in how it relates to PR.

My real world evidence trumps the corporate speak, I'm afraid.  So, yes, we will have to agree to disagree.

I'm on AT&T now (my wife recieved an iPhone as a free gift from her boss - most expensive gift ever, as it cost us $350 to drop out of our Verizon plan).

I need to stockpile my Razor V3 with games.  I don't want all of these games to appear on the bill and give my wife sticker shock.  Is there a way to pay for the games online and download them to the phone?  Verizon would not let you do that, but I seem to remember Cingular/AT&T would.  I'm just not sure how.

As I've said many times, a store is only good as its employees.
There are great stores out there and not so great ones.
It can be frustrating at times when a bad experience for someone translates to "Gamestop sucks".
There are those of us out there (like the person you encountered) that care a lot about our customers and what we do.

Really glad to hear you had a good experience.

But, see, corporate policies are weeding out the good stores and turning them into bad ones.  We have five stores within a twenty minute drive.  There is one that has kept the good employees fromk the "good old days."  But even that store has had its hands tied so far as what they are allowed to say and do.  And I've talked to the employees.  They are disheartened at best, frustrated at worst.  And it makes it tough for them to stay around.

As a corporation, GS/EB doesn't want employees who are knowledgeable of the video game world.  In all of the stores near me, there is one guy remaining who actually has a decent knowledge of what gaming is about, about what games are coming for which system, which ones are good and worth your attention.  And I have even heard that guy answer questions like, "What about Lair?  Is that a good game?" with "Yes, it's very popular."   That's not the best example, but I know it hurts him to do that. 

The company would rather have people like my friend's new manager who was behind the counter the other day when I asked if the new light gun game for the Wii had come in yet, but it wasn't Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles or Link's Crossbow Training.  His response was that those were the only light gun games for the Wii.  I informed him that Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 also had a light gun segment and that there was this other game...Ghost something.  He looked me right in the eye and said, "There are no other light gun games."  I finally remembered that it was Ghost Squad.  He finally realized that I wasn't going to leave until he put some effort in and looked it up.  His face lit up, as though he had somehow won this little exchange.  He said, "Ghost Squad.  Oh, yeah.  That comes out tomorrow.  You should pre-order that."  He muttered something about remembering it was some sort of haunted house game, and I informed him that it was a tactical squad based on-rails lightgun game.  And I left.  The thing that bothered me most about this exchange was that we spent five to ten minutes in which he specifically was deflecting responsibility and actively not helping me.  If my friend had been there, even if he hadn't heard of the game, I would have had the info in under two minutes.

This friend still does things like slip me pre-order bonuses and tchotchkes because he knows I buy a crap of a lot of games and it would be good to have me keep coming back. 

There was a time when every manager and steady employee would do the same.  I had a manager give me an Xbox that he'd received free at some manager event, because he knew that I would instantly spend about $500 on games and accessories.  That is incredible.  But now that guy is long gone.

The point is, I'm happy some of you have good stores, but don't get angry when the rest of us complain.  Look at the number of complaints, apart from you, it's nearly universal.  That should tell you it's not just a few bad apples.  Also, the argument that it's not the company, it's the employees doesn't really wash, because it is the company that's ruining the employees.  I hope it never happens to your store, but I suspect that it just hasn't happenend yet.

I'm hoping Cranium Kabookii is decent, but otherwise there's nothing to see here.  Move along.
13735  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Quick question about Mario & Sonic ... Olympics on: November 26, 2007, 04:14:14 PM
There is definite skill involved.  It is the kind of game an older brother would wail on his kid sister with.

That said, it is fun for kids.  My four year old enjoys it quite a bit.

However, there is nothing that approaches Mario Party 8 for her, but you might try Monkey Ball Banana Blitz or even Sonic and the Secret Rings.  She's even had fun with friends playing Carnival Games.

This week, Cranium Kabooki comes out.  I hope it's halfway decent.

How much space does the drum kit take up?  Does it collapse into a manageable form or do you have to take it completely apart for storage?  I'm thinking of buying the game and waiting for the drum kit to become available, tackling the guitar/bass solo career (and vocal if someone can get the headset mic working).  If the drums are just unmanagable, though, I'm not going to bother, probably.

I'm also wondering how entertaining this'll be single player-wise.  My wife doesn't seem interested, and I don't think I can convince Jade Raymond to come play with me.

Isn't Time Crisis 4 coming for the 360?

360:
Mass Effect - YES
Rock Band - Don't think I can justify the price, space it takes up and lack of people to play with, but the reviews are swaying me, pathetically
Undertow - YES

Wii:
AMF Bowling Pinbusters! - Possible, but unlikely
Geometry Wars: Galaxies - YES, unless the reviews say there's not enough meat there, or it's too hard
Ghost Squad - YES
Link's Crossbow Training - YES, though I've been hearing the Zapper itself is a little underwhelming...I preferred the gun style to the rifle style
Soulcalibur Legends - YES
Trauma Center: New Blood - YES, damn the Wii's having a kick-ass end of the year


DS:
Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings - YES
Mario Party DS - MAYBE, but probably not, unless the SP reviews are good

Rocky Road was frigging hard for my platform-disabled brain, but I managed to get through it.  Fortunately, there was a 1-up placed mid-level such that you had to work to get it, but it wasn't way out of the way, so the retries didn't wind up taking a chunk out of your extra guy reserves.  I think it seemed harder because it was drastically more difficult than the rest of the game up to then.

So far, I'm about 17 stars in.  I just opened up the second boss level, but have three stars on another galaxy before I get there.  I love the variety.  One second, I'm running around in a nice green area with trees and water.  Next minute, I'm getting Mario stuck in snot bushes, and pulling them back to fling him into the next snot bush, which are all floating on asteroids in the middle of space.  Very good game.

Of course, we seem to have a lot of those.  Got Mario on Tuesday, got Rock Band yesterday, and today I was finally able to pick up Call of Duty 4, Assassin's Creed, and Zack and Wikki, have Mass Effect coming in the mail as soon as it gets here, and I moved my Rock Band preorder over to Trauma Center 2.  Good lord, that's a lot of games.

I had similar challenges with Rocky Road.

They definitely waited too long to drop in the aliens.  The first odd bad guy you see isn't very impressive, either (and I don't think it's an alien).

The problem is in comparison, but that's true for any game that's not COD4 or AC or even Halo 3 or Bioshock or any of the uber-impressive games that are out.  Hopefully the bar has been raised for future games.

But as long as you understand that it's not those games and is just a "standard shooter," it's actually kind of fun, IMO.

In addition, film scribes Aykroyd and Ramis will pen a story for the vidgame that takes place in the early '90s, after "Ghostbusters II," during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.

Yeah... I'm thinking that #1- we all saw GB2 and it sucked, and #2- they might want to pretend GB2 never happened.

This might be a case where the game company would likely do a much, much better job.

And PS, Gigli is not better than anything whatsoever.  If someone thinks it's better than GhostBusters... go downtown and turn in your penis.

Hell, you don't even need a penis to love Ghostbusters.  I know plenty of women who love it.

I was in Manhattan about six months ago with my 4 year old daughter.  Way downtown.  When we headed back to the parking lot, I noticed this small, thin building with a red door across the street.  I just about geeksploded.  I asked the attendant and, sure enough, it was the Ghostbusters HQ.  I had to explain it to my kid, but had to add that she had to wait to see the movie (she'd never make it past the librarian).

The quotes that probably drop into real life most often for me are:

"...dogs and cats living together.  Mass hysteria!" (my wife actually said this just the other day)
"Nice shot, Tex!"
and
"I'm right in the middle of something, Ray!" with added slap to addressee's head.


Oh, and there was no Ghostbusters II.  Never happened.

You might wanna wait to finish the game before calling it gotd (game of the decade).

I'll declare it whenever I want!  I'm a huge Mario fan so I may be just a little biased, but so far this game has been pure gold and it has everything I love about gaming. 

Including man breasts? slywink

I'll hopefully be receiving the game from GameFly today or tomorrow, then I can borrow my friend's Wii and get started. My friend suggested we have a "gamethon" with Mario where we play through together, each getting one star then passing the controller over. Does that sound like a good (albeit kinda gay) plan?

Not as gay as man breasts.

Rabbids 2 is a sequel that has more style than substance. It's unfortunate, but it's true. While Ubisoft has added 50 new minis and colored the experience with unlockable costumes and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection support (for high score tracking), the core games are less enjoyable than those in the first, which is very disappointing. If you plan to pick the game up to play with friends, you will still have some fun -- some of the minis still deliver -- but don't expect a compete package as varied as the original. And as a single-player game, I wouldn't bother. Ubisoft does have the laughs down, but if there's to a be a third installment, I hope it will focus on minis that really use the Wii remote and nunchuk in unique and intuitive ways.

They liked the first one, but in the review they sound really disappointed in the second.

Hmm...that makes it sound more like a rental than a purchase. The other option is to just get the original. I was able to get a preowned copy for $22; probably even cheaper now that 2 is out.

The original is definitely worth $22.  Especially if you have others to play with.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone that has the game tried the co-op play mode?
I'd like both of my kids to be able to play this together so I'm wondering how well it works.

Yeah, I tried the co-op mode yesterday as my roommate played. There's not a whole lot to it. Basically the second player can wave the remote around and collect the star bits and then can fire them at enemies (which stuns them). However, because you collect star bits for extra lives (and maybe other things), you don't do a whole lot of firing. It does make you pay attention and you can point where you think the player should go (or to just annoy him/her... also fun), but the actual interaction is pretty limited.

This level of co-op is perfect for my four year old, though.  She loved playing with me yesterday.

So, the reviews are coming in and I guess it's an okay game at a time when we're seeing some of the best games ever on consoles.

IGN: 7.0
Gamespot: 6.0
1Up: 7.5
Gamepro: 60
OXM: 80
Team Xbox 7.0

Couple of clunkers, but mostly halfway decent.

*sigh*  Having played Umbrella Chronicles I can say, enjoy the crap implementation of the 'zapper' functions.  Even the Capcom guy at E3 said they were having a far more difficult time than they anticipated getting any level of accuracy in the thing.   Expect low scores folks...

Actually, Game Rankings just gave RE:UC an 8.3, though they did say the zapper was more of a hinderence than a help.  Still, they really liked it, saying, "A superb entry in the genre with a ton of great missions and reasons to play again and again. Anyone that enjoys the macabre, or going nose-to-nose with zombies should check it out. Fans will absolutely love it as it's basically a love letter from Capcom to them. "

Unfortunately, I don't have the 90 blocks to download it.  Now if Nintendo would give me the ability to run things from the SD card, I'd be set.

My 360 locked up twice in the last couple of days.  I have a sinking feeling...

And I'm sunk.  Two days after I posted, right at the start of the biggest release week of the year.  Red Rings of Death.

Wish me luck with customer service.

Pics from the grand finale tomale (nobody here is playing this so I'm probably not spoiling anything):


Kaboom.


Closing credits.

Thank *bleep* that's over...

Hey, I'm still playing.  Thanks a lot, Mr. Ruin-the-Game-for-Me.

it's not like he spoiled everything and said the Allies won the war.

DAMNIT!! You're lucky it takes extra clicks to send a private message or to use one of those "ban" smilies.

Good luck, ATB.

I had a guy send me a counterfeit copy of the Criterion Hard Boiled awhile back.  Didn't work at all beyond the menu. 

It's amazing how difficult it is to accuse anyone of anything, ebay-wise.  Everything is set up in their favor.  Though I guess if it wasn't, more people would be fraudulently tossing accusations around.

no mention of any screen tearing in the Wii review on IGN.

I only skimmed it, but there doesn't seem to be a mention of it in the 360 review, either.

It's definitely there and noticeable, but I don't know that I would have brought it up if I hadn't seen this post.
