Yeah, I'm starting to think that maybe this "World's Greatest Dad" award isn't actually that prestigious.

did you find this out pre or post offspring?

played this back in the day and it was a pretty decent game for it's time.  like you said, basically a ff clone for sega.  iirc it had some decent title music. 

hell, that's pretty cool they have sega cd games ported over like that.  if they have either of the lunar games, give them a shot.

of course, part of the upgrade allure is that i could give her my phone, which is much better than hers is.

considering how awful it sold, it might be hard to get without visiting the wretched place of scum of and villainy (ebay)

i keep my eyes open for it whenever i go into a game store and it's never there.
8850  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New DS Lite? on: July 16, 2008, 05:32:27 PM
yeah, i don't see them dropping the gba slot any time soon.  it would cut the rug out from under future guitar hero games.

i would love a newer system with more psp or iphone like capabilities and a bigger set of screens.  make it ds1 compatible and give it a built in net browser or other pda apps and i'd buy one on launch.
8851  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP store now has tv and movies on: July 16, 2008, 05:15:24 PM
are these rentals or purchases?  while i wouldn't bother with $2 rentals, i might be up for keeping episodes for later viewing. 

tbh, i always thought the idea of renting an episode for money was kind of dumb.  in many cases, you can watch the episode for free on the network web site, but you have to pay for a time limited download?  it's why i don't bother with anything on Live either. 
8852  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS2] Yakuza 2 gets release date for US on: July 16, 2008, 05:12:02 PM
with this on the horizon, is there any reason to go dig up yak 1?  i assume that yak 2 is an improvement in pretty much every way, so if i could reduce the growth of my backlog a bit, my wallet (and wife) would thank me.

btw, wth didn't they show yak 3 at e3?  that could be a great showpiece of the ps3's capability.

if you sold it to someone here, you could get them back, depending on two things. 
1)  they didn't delete them
2)  you could send them a mem card
3)  ms' wonky drm wouldn't block you from retrieving them.

also know that technically, this is what got a lot of people's tags flagged as cheaters for achievement twinking.

btw, when did you become calvin/atb?

It's undoubtedly a blow to Sony but after GTA4 utterly failed to moved hardware for either MS or Sony, I think the system-selling capacity of any single title is relatively low. 

And based on how Sony didn't actually give any sales figures for MGS4 (despite bringing it up almost every other sentence), it seems that there's no such thing as 'games that move hardware' anymore.

And absolutely perfect comic for PA.

I'd have to say that GTA4 would have moved hardware only if it was exclusive. Since that's not the case, it wasn't drawing new people in.

you have to wonder how many people bought the hardware for it before they announced the delay in '07.

i qualify under that category in a small part.  360 elite bought at launch "for" mass effect, gta4, and mercs 2.  of course, i have had a S-ton of fun with it and a pretty good catalog of games to play now, so it's not just for those three games.  it was a big reason to get one though.  same with a friend of mine.  he held out until the falcon released.

I was really hoping for a Red Steel 2 announcement. slywink
just make it compatible with the motion plus and it's a done deal.

8858  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Too Human demo coming next week on: July 15, 2008, 04:17:50 PM
not too bad and the only problem i had was camera related when facing the larger boss.  once i figured out that you could target individual parts of his armor/weapons, i had a blast taking them down. 

i like the item variety and the crafting and runes. 

the thing i noticed with runes is that you can only attach compatible ones to the equipment/charm.  match the symbols on the runes/equipment. 

this is going into the gamefly queue, and i will be trying to get it sent out the week of release.
8859  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Too Human demo coming next week on: July 14, 2008, 04:24:06 PM
not good.  how hard is it to code a decent camera these days? 

i'll try the demo out when i get home, but it's not looking up.

8862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Civ: Rev (DS) on: July 11, 2008, 07:16:28 PM
then they should have done a single save, that deletes when you load and saves when you leave, so you could have split up a multi hour game for people without long game play sessions?

oh well.  not sure i will do the 360 version as i already have civ4 +bts at home.

Wednesday at 2:30pm we'll be getting 30-45 minutes of hands-on time with the game.  That should answer a few questions.

are you going to be able to talk about what you see?  or are you just going to torture us by knowing stuff we don't know?

We'll get to write up our experiences, but no audio/video recording allowed.  :/

8869  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Civ: Rev (DS) on: July 11, 2008, 04:25:49 PM
while i do notice the missing features, it doesn't bug me.  it still gives me the same addictive "one more turn, oh crap it's 2 am and i have to get up at 6" feeling that civ 4 did.  that happened to me last night. 

i miss not having workers to set up facilities outside of my cities as it really makes city placement such a crapshoot until you see the resources.  of course, the resources aren't critical outside of their +x to money, growth, science and culture, so it's not game ending to have that whale and fish resource unavailable.

this is a great short game to play if you have 10 minutes at a pop.  especially on the ds.

wii underneath the tv stand next to
yamaha receiver hooked up to in ceiling 5.1 setup with the sub hookup behind the couch.
ps3 60 gb on the right.

sadly, i don't get much time to put the receiver to it's limits, so i have a decent pair of ear covering headphones.

pc is a bit dated now, but it still runs everything i play with no problem.
athlon dual core 4400
2gb of whatever memory i put in it.
36k raptor drive for the OS and applications
300gb for storage

i also have a half finished project hooking a 750gb up to a nslu2 hacked with unslung for media sharing to the game systems.
8871  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Too Human demo coming next week on: July 11, 2008, 04:08:46 PM
the game never seemed that interesting to me to begin with, so i'll give the demo a fair shot and if it gets good impressions from people here, i might grab it. 

otherwise, it will fall into my "buy it when it hits half off, and only if i don't have something else atm."

two different targets, not much except turning point PC for ~8 and nothing significant for the 360.  if TP was the 360 version i would have grabbed it, but i haven't had much pc time lately.

are there more traps in a room than shiren?  it didn't seem like there were that many traps early on and most of them were not so horrible to nerf you too badly.  mostly just arrow traps and confuse.  oh well.  i'll still end up playing it as i did shiren.  play a ton of the early levels to build up a good equipment supply before trekking further in.

8878  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chocobo Dungeon review/impression thread. on: July 08, 2008, 04:30:51 PM
got a copy of egm and their review for this is pretty favorable.  they say that this falls in between the pokemon dungeon games and shiren for difficulty.  for instance, you don't lose experience or your equipped weapon and armor.  they do say that it's no pushover of a game though, but don't give any examples of how it kicks your butt.  the learning curve is apparently more forgiving as well, so if you tried and gave up on shiren early on, this might be a better intro to rogue-likes.

other pluses mentioned are the graphics (simple but lush), a decent story and a great nostalgic FF soundtrack.  it also has a lot of the bells usually present in these type of games, like restricted dungeons, equipment forging, tough but fair difficulty, etc.  there is a job system that gives you more options for class advancement and skills.  overall score was a B+

oddly enough, when i thought this was a ds game, i was very much intent to get it this week.  knowing it's on the wii means i now have to push myself to get it as my game time at home is pretty thin these days and i have a huge enough backlog as it is.  i'll still probably break down and get it though.

one of my dad's "coffee snob" friends very much disliked mcD's iced mochas, so that tells me that it's probably pretty tame compared to the main line stuff.  may be a good starting point for you. 

latte>cappuccino>mocha  from hardest to softest.  avoid americano at first. 

oh, best thing is that coffee is one of those things where price-quality is very noticeable.  don't start with the super cheap stuff or it will probably kill your motivation.
