too bad the compilation doesn't use have a ps2 version of twin snakes.  then it would have been perfect. 
9842  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Burnout Paradise : DEMO IMPRESSIONS! (newfangled poll too!) on: March 06, 2008, 07:32:08 PM
- The game indefinitely displays "Connecting to Paradise City Servers" if it's having problems pinging the rebroadcast server.

i encountered this a few times and it was very annoying.  the only way out was to exit to dashboard.  glad to see they fixed this.

i grabbed this last night, but due to an early start at work, i haven't got any impressions other than "the box looks nice"

i really hope to get going on this soon, and especially coop.

i'm on the edge of grabbing this, but i have a question.  how bad is it to lose your troops?  i played the demo and never lost any caps, but from a review i read, it seems you can completely lose troops to some enemies?  when that happens, do you lose their equipment too, or just the materials to create them?  from the demo, it seemed like certain items were pretty hard to find, like stone, so if you lost a bunch of your tatepons, it could be impossible to replace them right away.  during those fights where you could lose them permanently, is it possible to avoid that attack completely? 

i haven't seen a copy in any of 4 targets and 3 best buys.  i'm wondering if i'll be able to find one any time soon.

IN on day one.  this will make it harder to stay with army of two which i grabbed last night, but i don't care.  i missed out on r6v last year, and i will not be missing the carnage this time. 

now i just need to find a good way to quiet the wife and kids.   ninja
9847  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Good grief, enough witih the firmware updates! on: March 06, 2008, 05:49:58 PM
that always annoyed me as well.  especially as i would run into that while on ac power.  if it's plugged in, what difference does that make if the battery isn't charged? 

i only bothered to update when required by a game, as until recently, the minor improvements weren't a big enough deal to bother with. 

now that i'm on custom fw, i actually stay pretty current.  if they had made skype work on the phat psp, i  would have upgraded then too.
9848  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Good grief, enough witih the firmware updates! on: March 06, 2008, 01:03:42 AM
hehe, 3.9 has been hacked for weeks now.  i think it went out about a week after sony put theirs out. 

so much for fighting the hacking community.
9849  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: God of War: Chains of Olympus Impressions on: March 05, 2008, 08:51:44 PM
it's hard to quantify, but for whatever reason, it just didn't click with me.  i guess i should try the demo and see for myself.

i remember people saying the conan game last year was like a poor man's version of gow.  i did like that demo so maybe i just need to give it a chance.
9850  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: God of War: Chains of Olympus Impressions on: March 05, 2008, 08:28:41 PM
both the syphon filter games and the socom games prove that fps can be done on the psp.  logan's shadow has a brilliant control scheme once you remap your left hand to aim and your right to movement. 

i played ls before dark mirror and it's awkward to go back when the new version is so much better. 

truth be told, i never played either of the gow's and to hear some talk about it, it may not be my thing.  if it's as much like devil may cry, then i'll probably play for a very short time before losing interest.
9851  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: A Bittersweet Day (getting a Wii) on: March 05, 2008, 08:02:21 PM
while i fully admit i will likely never play some of my games again, i do know that it can happen.  in fact, i am currently working on getting sonic cd playing on the psp emulator.  i also plan to revisit some ps1 games via the remote play system, so it's not like they will all be abandoned just yet.

even though i won't play them all, i don't think i could just dump them off, especially at shovelware prices.
9852  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Army of Two - it's gonna be coop fun ladies! on: March 04, 2008, 11:09:47 PM
that's their super cool skull helmets.  the reviewer up top actually mentioned them and says he likes it. 

this looks cool, but like ike said, will it be fun beyond the first playthrough?  tough call.

hmmm.  i've been contemplating getting the 360 adapter.  what do you find is wrong with the setup?  i have a third controller so i wouldn't need to worry about reconnecting or anything.  if it's something else, then i might just sell it and go this route, especially once i get a ds3.

So, I've found exactly one review on the game so far - looks to be quite promising though. Especially if you'll be playing the entire game co-op with another human player.

I know I'll be grabbing it tomorrow. I have a friend that'll shoot me if I don't. biggrin

cool on the review.  any word of a gt review?  i seem to trust those guys for some reason.
9855  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playing Metal Gear Solid 1 - 3 before MGS 4 - who is with me?! on: March 04, 2008, 01:04:39 AM
definitely in for mgs 1 and 3.  i'll get to try out the psp's remote play ps1-on-ps3 deal.  i am thinking about grabbing the trilogy collection later on, as i have the non special versions of 2 and 3. 

that reminds me, i have a pc version of one of mgs hiding around somewhere.

That is always a possibility on the PS3.

btw, whereabouts in the ol pacNW are you hanging about gator? 

Yes, it is an option in UT3.  I am in Vancouver, WA. 

that's pretty cool about ut3.

Perhaps they shouldn't have placed all their hopes on the success of a Diablo clone, especially one which didn't even innovate above that title in any way (until the expansion, that is).

fill me in, did they add some really cool stuff to the expansion?  i thought the class creation was pretty cool actually, so even though the gameplay was a direct throwback, i liked the game.  also sad to not getting a sequel.

if they add on some levels and alter the last third of the game, i'd be interested.

I think I can sacrifice the 360 graphics for the Wii contol scheme:

Quote
Bully: Scholarship Edition is basically an expanded experience in a few key areas. Most prominent of the changes Wii owners will find is the revamped control scheme, which actually works very well, and makes fighting (like Wii's Godfather: Blackhand Edition) extremely fun and engaging. Rather than button mashing to fight, a quick shake of the nunchuk or Wii remote will throw left and right hand punches respectively. Grabs are handled by holding Z and pushing forward with your left hand at which point you can shove them with another nunchuk shove, or deliver punches with the remote and the classic humiliation finishing moves are now all motion-activated, similar to a PG-13 Manhunt 2 scheme.

I only had enough time for a brief glance at the IGN review, but damn those controls do sound good. I won't be picking this up this week, but when I do I'll definitely be going with the Wii version.

damn good news, and i was so close to writing the wii version off.  now i need to figure which is the better version. 

partial in for bully, army of two and smash

same thing happened to me last year.  they had a $150 off first purchase, and as soon as i got the card, they were out online.  i lucked out when i found a sony store about 15 min from work and got their last 60 gb model. 

good luck with your hunt.
9867  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Professor Layton and the Curious Village Impressions on: February 28, 2008, 11:47:06 PM
finished this up with 119/126 completed.  still need to find 115 118 and 120, and unlock the last two sets of bonus puzzles.  still stuck on
8  just found this one after getting the gizmo completed. 
64 equations.  not sure where to go with this one
67 damn chocolate code.  yeah i get the reference, but i don't see any words there.
76 tile square.  thought i had this one figured out
107 i can get some improvement, but not enough to match the picture
128 haven't spent much time on it except to ponder common numbers.
132 close but no cigar

just under 12 hours total playthrough.  great game and i await the sequels. 
9868  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: God of War PSP bundle with red PSP on: February 28, 2008, 08:55:13 AM
one i have found useful in theory if not in practice is pspvnc, aka virtual network console, aka control your pc from your psp, across any network connection.  i haven't had much time with it when i used the earlier version, but we use vnc at work and having a portable method would make my job easier.  if someone would homebrew a citrix client, i would be golden. 

my next mini project is the sega cd emu for some old school sonic cd action.  until then, having an almost full 4gb stick with every game i own suits me just fine.  ftrecord, most of my simpler games are under 200mb compressed.  gta vcs is one of the bigger ones at 1.6gb, although i haven't compressed it yet as i would have to clear out a bunch of stuff i'm playing in small chunks.
9869  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: God of War PSP bundle with red PSP on: February 27, 2008, 06:54:58 PM
not to mention you "can" copy all of your umd discs to the stick so you can ditch carrying them around all the time. 

other than a battery slowly losing it's long charge time, i still like the phat psp i've had since '05
9870  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / the only review for lost via domus is... on: February 26, 2008, 06:08:44 AM
good, surprisingly a 9.0 from wonderwallweb.  i have to question the source however, as i have never read anything there before.  it does make me interested to try it, but with a reported 12 hours playthrough, it's a rental candidate.

i'd be surprised and impressed with a good game

i really want to add to this, but honestly, my 360 gaming time (and consoles in general) has dropped to a trickle.  it's all psp/ds gaming in small chunks atm.

if you three rave over it, my will will be broken however.  the sp demo was cool and multi sounds like a ton of fun.

bare pickings today. 2 copies of universe at war @ $25. if anyone wants me to pick up a copy, lmk. they also had jericho PC version for 15 and a random selection of console games but no standouts.

i'll check the other store in the next few days as they have usually had better selection.

no folklore or ngs.  they had a few ps3 sports games on clearance, but nothing to write home about.
