OMGHI2U!!!!

So is this stuff being shared wirelessly or do you need to have a lan cable connected between your PC and your PS3?

Yeah regarding PS3 sales... if Madden isn't selling crazygonuts #s, I don't think any FF will do what it did in the past.  Stateside, anyway.  God knows those crazy azns will run with it like a retard with scissors.

Actually really, it's the Americans who love Final Fantasy not the Japanese.  The Japanese would run like that for a new Dragon Quest.  I hope the FF series never goes to the 360? Why?  Just because I read so often 360 owners gloating over how they have one less reason to buy a PS3 every time Sony loses an exclusive.  I just want something to stick in their craw.  That's the only reason really smile

Ahhh.  Now I feel like a big idiot for buying a Japanese PS3 instead of a North American one frown

Just for clarification, PS3's can't play multi-region PSOne games can they?  I know they can't play multi-region PS2 games.
4565  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's your GOAT of the year for 2007? on: December 18, 2007, 01:38:06 PM
Jeanne D'Arc is my GOTY one moment and my GOAT the next.  I took the UMD out tonight and literally whipped it against the wall.  Fortunately (maybe unfortunately?) it did not break.  Believe me I am not an angry gamer-that's the first time in my life I've ever done that.  But a combination of their god-damn fucking "everyone must live" and 12 turn maximum made me absolutely livid tonight.  It took me four attempts to get through one of the levels tonight (the one where you have to jump over the castle walls).  How in God's name could they believe that putting a turn limit into the game makes it more fun?  It's just goddamn ridiculous.  I don't want to fucking work.  I don't want to waste three fucking hours playing one level.  I want to enjoy the game and I don't ever want to be "stuck".

I wonder if Crisis Core is going to be as big in the US as it was in Japan.  Didn't it sell like 500,000 copies in the first week in Japan?

Where the fuck is Hot Shots Golf 5 Sony?

I'm playing it right now! smile  I wonder if this is in response to MS allowing DivX to be played on the 360?  If so then that is why I love competition! TML how do you stream files off your computer?  Please share.

Well after shooting up from last to 4th place in just over a month, I've officially retired.  After watching the "An Inconvenient Truth" documentary I've decided that I can help do my part by NOT leaving my PS3 running 24/7.  I realize that it's a trade off, human health over world health but to be honest the last thing this world needs is MORE people.
4570  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New trailers - FFXIII and FF Versus XIII - PS3 exclusives on: December 17, 2007, 07:21:29 AM
Well I count that one as some kind of off-shoot, not technically part of the FF 1-12 (minus 11) series.
4571  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New trailers - FFXIII and FF Versus XIII - PS3 exclusives on: December 17, 2007, 06:00:14 AM
So is the main protagonist (redundant?) actually a woman this time around?  Is that a first for the series?  I mean, the male leads have always looked like women but this is the first time for it to be an actual woman correct?
4572  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New trailers - FFXIII and FF Versus XIII - PS3 exclusives on: December 17, 2007, 12:18:16 AM
What's the difference between FFXIII and FFXIII VERSUS?  That VERSUS video looked sweet!

Eurogamer just gave it an 8 but pretty much tore it a new asshole, calling one game broken, the other nearly unplayable, and on the whole an awful conversion.

That actually ranks quite poorly on the 8 to 9.5 scale!

LOW:  PS3.  Mine continues to collect dust as I own exactly 0 games for it. 



Well that's not surprising.  I don't know what else it would do.  I'll be all over the next console that you don't have to actually buy games for.

I think this is a short-lived reaction to the price cut.

plus the PS3 is more readily available  icon_wink

Actually it's quite easy to get a Wii in Japan nowadays.  I mean according to that article they only sold 180k in November (as opposed to something like 1 million in America) so they're not really hard to find.

Oooh I can put that game on my cell phone.  Actually I've seen people playing RPG's on their cell phones and looks totally fun!  The DS is portable and all but I rarely carry it around with me unless I happen to be going on a fairly long excursion.  Your cell phone on the other hand, you have on you 24/7 (at least we do in Japan biggrin).  I would definitely be picking this up if it wasn't for the language barrier.

4581  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official November NPD Numbers - DS, Wii Lead, 360 Very Respectable on: December 14, 2007, 12:31:31 AM
Am I reading this right?  The Xbox 360 version of COD 4 sold 1.1 million copies and the PS3 version sold 7000 copies?  The 360 version of Assassins Creed sold 980,000 copies and and the PS3 version only sold a measly 10,000 copies?  Surely those are typos.  If not, why would any company in the right minds even bother putting out games for the PS3?  The PSP is doing fantastic (in a vacuum where the Nintendo DS does not exist).

The early PS1 and PS2s were pretty unreliable as well.  Heck, the Commodore 64 suffered from major issues as well during it's first year and a half.  Yeah, it sucks that the 360 is as flaky as it is, but it's not unprecedented.

I don't think the PS problems were quite as bad as the 360.  Although I didn't buy early versions of either (1998 PS, 2003 PS2) both ran fine-my PS until I sold it and my PS2 still today.

The problem isn't the cold so much as the lack of insulation.  6 or 10 degrees isn't cold per say, but if it was 10 degrees celcius inside your house then I'm sure you would be complaining as well!
4588  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hot Shots Golf 2 (PSP) on: December 12, 2007, 04:12:53 AM
I wonder if the two versions (Japanese vs American) will be compatible for multiplayer. I doubt it.  Although my Japanese ability is poor, I far prefer the Japan version of the games.  I like the characters more and I don't get annoyed by all the stupid things that the english versions constantly say.
4589  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I Turn on My SuperNES only to Learn I have Red Ring Phobia on: December 12, 2007, 04:01:41 AM

I saw on a train advertisment that this one is out in Japan.  Oooh I'm excited!  It actually looks a lot like Hot Shots 1 (I actually thought I was looking at an ad for the original).  I noticed that it has LAN play (and possibly wi-fi but I didn't get a chance to read the whole ad). Boy I'm excited about this one!  I wonder when it comes out in America.
4591  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy Tactics WotL? on: December 11, 2007, 11:28:42 PM
I don't remember it being that grindy, although I admit I played it in uni when I had a lot more free time.  Do you have the job points up skill?  That helps you learn new job skills a lot quicker.

true.  Ok I'll leave it open for now.  But I think the trend has already been set in terms of console ownership.  I doubt we'll see any significant changes.
4595  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 10, 2007, 12:06:32 AM
I've actually never played six but I had assumed that it was an old-school top down 8-bit RPG.  Am I wrong?  All I know is that I'm amazed today by some of the things they do with FF7.  For example when the 2D backgrounds seamlessly transform into a movie with your character in it.  Sure the resolution is shiite but it's quite awesome.  And some of those summon sequences in FF7 are absolutely awesome despite their age.  I can only imagine how people were totally blown away in 1997 or whenever this game came out.  Sadly I wasn't really into games back then so I missed it.

You don't have to read it-you can watch it! Even better!  Basically they said: the main character sucks, the story is good but you're removed from it, you'll grind more than you've ever ground (sp?) in the history of FF titles, and you spend most of the game hacking and slashing and using hardly any summons or whatever the other things are because they take up all of your magic in one go.
4599  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy 12- Yay or Nay? on: December 08, 2007, 11:45:17 PM
Well I guess I'll have to pick it up then.  The Gametrailers review really did a good job of making it sound like a shit game that only a crazy person would want to play.
4600  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy 12- Yay or Nay? on: December 08, 2007, 02:24:05 PM
Someday eventually I will get to Final Fantasy 12 (after 7, 8, 9, and 10).  I'm wondering if I should be picking up 12 for the backlog.  I don't know how I feel about the turn based battles disappearing.  And some of the reviews said that there's a ridiculous amount of grinding, which I happen to dislike intensely.  Was the demo that came with Dragon Quest 8 at all representative of the game?  Because I have that-I tried it a long time ago and wasn't thrilled by it.
