I suppose I can understand that.  They have extremely limited space  and a number is worth a thousand words or however the saying goes slywink  Still, I think flame wars would be instantly put out as soon as numbered scores disappeared smile

according to the link

Psp games are region free....but they recommend you get the system and games in the same region due to language.  But then again wouldn't you be able to load an english firmware on it??  Then just buy american games.....they will be in english.......


I don't think there are any problems regarding language-I certainly haven't experienced any anyways on my Japanese PSP.  On the other hand, if there is a problem with your PSP then it could be troublesome when it comes to Sony fixing it or whatnot.  You'd probably have to send it back to Japan.  That's the only downside I can forsee.

I think that basically what needs to happen is that all number scores get banned.  Don't give a game any kind of score.  Write an intelligent, thoughtful review and make the reader read it instead of just looking at the top or the bottom of the page.  The Wargamer does it all the time.

Interesting.  Corn is almost useless as an ethanol source as it takes almost as much energy to produce it.    What are the South Americans producing it with? Sugarcane?  Apparently that is much more efficient.

Well I think the point he was making is that you CAN get a a Blu-ray player for only $150 and you can get a game console for only $250 on top of that.  Of course it's true that perhaps he doesn't want a game console-but then he'd be posting on the wrong forums! smile

That's why you go to places where you can get nomihodae (all you can drink).  If you wanna really live then I suggest going to a nomihodae/tabehodae yakiniku restaurant.  You can drink as much as you can and eat (and grill yourself) as much meat as you can for about 2 hours for about $25 US.

What, I'm not allowed to think someone is pretentious, egomaniacal, annoying, and not like his writing? If you want to be a public figure (and he clearly does), people aren't going to like you and are going to express the opinion.

Oh you're certainly entitled to hate him, it just seems like you make a point to make your stance clear every time Qt3 or Tom are mentioned here.  Was just curious why, but with the whole cat thing it all makes sense.

This is what Calvin does.  He is to QT3 as Turtle is to XBox 360.

Or perhaps he is to QT3 as QT3 is to PS3?  I just wish I could read a single thread over there about a PS3 game that doesn't denigrate into 'who cares about the game when we can discuss how much we all think the PS3 sucks?"

There's nothing preventing Microsoft and Nintendo from licensing Blu-Ray technology should they decide they want to include a Blu-Ray drive in their next console.

So basically for the next generation, for every game that the Sony and Microsoft and Nintendo sell, Sony will make money off of?  If that isn't genius then I don't know what is.  I can just picture them now "Please buy an Xbox 720! And make sure to buy lots of games too.  Especially the games! Why don't you get some Nintendo games while you're at it?"

Most people that owned an Xbox (original generation) owned it primarily to play Halo. With the attach rate being damn near 50% I have to wonder if the 360 may have peaked already. The promise of future and present Halo sold a LOT of consoles, but will it have staying power now that the big ticket games have shipped? Or does this really prove the Xbox is a "halo box" primarily once again.

The 360 has a much higher overall attach rate than either of the two competitors, which would seem to indicate it's anything but a "Halo box".

You're absolutely right.  There's also Rainbow 6:Vegas and COD 4 and UT3 and GRAW and GRAW 2 and FEAR and America's Army and Clive Barker and The Orange Box and Timeshift and Prey and COD3 and... (ad infinitum)  Oh wait! I think he meant "SHOOTER box"

Just out of curiousity, why has the price of the game jumped from 19.99 to 39.99?  You should return it and then rebuy it when it comes on sale for 19.99 again biggrin

Well how long has the DVD generation lasted? 12 years? Longer?  And it isn't going to end any time soon that's for sure.  Sony will make their money back eventually I'm sure.  As for "sacrificing" the the PS3...hasn't the PS3 sold just as many units in their first year as the 360 did in theirs?  I think the PS3 is going to make a big comeback-sure they won't be able to knock the Wii out but I think it will compete against the 360.  And come next generation the PS4 will have a blu-ray player installed as well-something neither the new Xbox or Nintendo console will have.  I know I bought my PS2 partly because of DVD capability.  I wonder how many people will do the same for the next generation.  Could it be that Sony have actually been geniuses all along?
4587  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Hi-Def War to end at CES 2008...? on: January 05, 2008, 04:28:57 AM
Well I think this is good news for everybody.  The sooner we decide a winner the better.  What's wrong with Blu-ray winning?  More power to them I say.  Of course, the 2 for 1 deals will probably quickly disappear.  But still, at least everybody will have a reason to pick up a PS3 then!  'It's for the movies' you can tell yourself smile

Actually I think Mass Effect was overhyped and underperformed.  Looking at this forum for the past 8 months, you'd think that the release of Mass Effect was going to be the second coming of Jesus.  But it only sold 1.6 million copies.  That's fantastic don't get me wrong.  But if you ask me, if you're going to hype yourself up with the big boys (GTA, Halo) then you'd better provide some big boy numbers as well.

Uhh is my thread still about Obama?  I don't know much about him but I really LIKE him.  To be honest I don't think Hillary should even be in the race.  She's only here because her husband is Bill Clinton, same as she only became a Senator because her husband is Bill Clinton.  We've all seen what can happen when you re-elect a close relative of a former President-never do it again!
Anyways good for Obama.  Before the newspapers all made it sound like Hillary basically had the whole thing locked up and Obama was dead in the water.  Nice to see that there may be a good race now!

I think I found me a winner!! Worms 2!!  Only problem is that I found it on the PSP smile  That's why I love my PSP-just go online and download a demo and see how you like it.

How does the DS version of Worms compare to the PSP version?  Graphics aren't super duper important to me but they're fairly important.  The only "real" person that I might play with is my girlfriend and she doesn't have a PSP-only a DS. Of course there's no guarantee that she would be interested in playing either-she tends to stick with Brain Training.

I don't get into American politics too much but I was surprised to see that Obama scored an overwhelming victory over apparent "frontrunner" Clinton.  I know much about the politics of it all but apparently these early results in the backwaters of America make or break an election campaign.  What does this all mean for the Democrats do you think?

4599  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Recommend me a DS game on: January 02, 2008, 11:42:43 AM
Ok I have a DS but it barely gets any play time.  That probably has something to do with the fact that I only own Panzer Tactics, Phantom Hourglass (in Japanese) and Age of Empires (meh).  Panzer Tactics is great but it doesn't do anything better than a lot of similar, superior computer games can do and it takes a lot of thinking time for me.  It's more of a game that I would sit down with at home in the afternoon and play for a long period rather than something I would pick up for ten minutes.

So, I'm looking for a game that I could play on the train.  Something that I can instantaneously pick up and play and don't need to remember what I'm doing or where I have to go (it might be a week between play times).  With a game like Panzer Tactics, once I'm done all my planning I find that I've already reached my stop and I just have to start all over again next time.  So what's good?
