4641  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New GTA IV trailer...annnnd, yup, it's definitely a GTA game. on: December 07, 2007, 07:30:51 AM
I didn't notice anything strange about the animations.  They looked great actually.  And I don't think there was any actual gameplay in that trailer so I don't see how anybody could criticize the animations.  By animation we're talking about how a character moves, correct?

Nice looking game but the lip synching is terrible!  Will that be fixed?
4643  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo line up for Q1 2008 on: December 07, 2007, 03:51:40 AM
Well no single title jumps out at me.  Perhaps I haven't been following the Wii side of things enough.  I see Mario Kart is there but Mario Kart gets a big meh from me.
4644  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Pain Impressions on: December 07, 2007, 12:22:35 AM
I see they already have downloadable characters for it.  Like two days after it's been released?  They're already milking it.  Should have been included with the download in my opinion
4645  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo line up for Q1 2008 on: December 07, 2007, 12:14:47 AM
That Wii list makes me wonder why anyone would want to have a Wii.

Cool free themes!  Do I have to wait a week to download them? slywink
4647  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Free content will now be withheld from Xbox Live Silver accounts for a week on: December 06, 2007, 01:14:09 PM
At least we're disagreeing.  It hasn't even raised a peep on QT3.  Those people would be happy if their 360 came with a rapestick.

Insteresting debate! I don't think I can add anything that hasn't already been stated.  I guess I'll just go check my PS3 and see if there are any FREE, on time demos available! smile

Who cares if the AI cheats (I noticed it a bit in the PS2 version but didn't really care) if you can play online. That's where it's at (especially if there's a way to win cards from other people online).

Ooh I could just picture people turning off their consoles as they're about to lose!

Ours is still in progress.  My girlfriend is Japanese and hence it's her first time with a real (but fake) Christmas tree.  I'm not much better.  Pics to come later.
4651  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Going to Japan! What to do and who to meet? on: December 05, 2007, 02:38:39 PM
To be honest I'm not a huge fan of Japan.  Yes the women are what keep me here (my girlfriend being first and foremost!).  But I'm not a big fan of the food, or the temples or much else.  Don't let me discourage you though! I'm sure it's a great place to visit!  Tell us what you are interested in and perhaps we can give you some advice.

that's not even mentioning that 50 bucks a year is nothing...

$50 a year for say 5 years (the life of a console) and that's over half of what your next console will cost.  Almost an entire console back in the last generation.

yeah...and over 5 years, that's nothing

No that's over half the cost of a new generation console.  I'm amazed that people won't buy a PS3 because they think it's $50 bucks overpriced.  Yet those same people (not necessarily you, Kepow) are willing to pay another $250 on top of the $400 they've already spent for the Xbox 360.  Madness I tell you!

People who are unwilling to pay $5 a month for gold access can, I suspect, wait 7 days to get a demo.

It could also be said that people who are dumb enough to pay for online content will....be content to know that they're getting something for their money?  Hmm that didn't come out the way it sounded in my head smile
4657  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 04, 2007, 12:51:23 PM
Interesting. I was wondering if I should do that with mine.  Are the graphics any better at all?  The texture smoothing that the PS2 does helps get rid of some of FF7's warts smile

I think we've already got a few blogs going around here don't we?  Godzilla Blitz is doing one of his playthrough of the entire FF series-in Japanese.  And someone else is doing one on all the RPG's for the Playstation!  To be honest, I'm having a hard enough time finishing the damn games without doing all that work on a blog! smile

Played about 35 hours of FF7, 30 hours of FF9, and about 40 hours of FFX.  I never beat any of them though.

105 hours of JRPG without finishing any of the games?  icon_eek



I think I'd rather shave my head with a cheese grater while chewing on tin foil.


Yeah it's pretty sad-talk about a waste.  I've done that with a lot of games actually.  30 or 40 hours in Chrono Cross-never finished it.  25 hours into Xenosaga-never finished it.  I managed to finish Ico because it was only about 10 hours!  I put about 17 hours into Okami and never finished it.  Talk about a waste of god damn time!!  The problem with RPG's is that once you step away for a while it's really hard to get back into it.  You forget the story and what the heck you're supposed to be doing.  You guys are right- four games in a month is a little bit much.  My goal for December will be to beat FF7 only.
4662  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 03, 2007, 11:26:53 PM
I have a confession-I have never actually finished a FF game.  I beat FF Tactics but I played with a friend.  Played about 35 hours of FF7, 30 hours of FF9, and about 40 hours of FFX.  I never beat any of them though.  I'm wondering if it would be possible to go through and beat them all in the month of December.  Is it do you think?  If I start over from the beginning?  I don't have a job so that will help.  On the other hand I don't want to be sitting in front of the TV permanently for a month.  Is it possible to rush through them without doing too much grinding and very few sidequests and finish them in say 30 hours or 35 hours?

I love "To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy 10.

Well I just had a good game with ATB and was throughly and soundly thrashed. Looks like I need to play a little bit more!  Oh and for future reference, three minute turns are NOT long enough and 30,000 points are just way to many! smile
4666  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Final Fantasy College Saga (live action Youtube) on: December 03, 2007, 01:02:32 AM
Ok clocking in at 42 minutes this was way too long to watch all of it but I was very impressed by the first five minutes! It seems very professionally done (for amateurs) and in just the first five minutes you'll see a lot of hallmarks of the FF series (and RPG's in general).  Fantastic job!

Unfortunately Wife prefers fake and since we have an abundance of dumb animals that would love nothing more than to get at the water under the tree - I agreed to compromise and accept a fake one again this year. Typing this as wife and daughter are hanging ornaments on it.


Maybe it's just be but I don't see the compromise here.  It looks like your wife simply won and convinced you that you were getting a compromise.

Tons of people are giving a score of one on Gamespot's site lol.  I can guarantee you that Eidos will not be happy about THAT publicity, whether things went down the way the Penny Arcade guys say.  I hope he got fired for the reasons stated because if he didn't I could see how someone might have a serious slander case on their hands.

MGS has always been popular.  At least since the PSOne days anyways.  When it came down to which console you were going to buy (N64 or Playstation) you either went with Zelda or you went with Metal Gear Solid.  At least I did anyways!  People may not be so amazed with MGS now but way back in 1998 (or whenever it came out) it was the shit!!!
4675  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Unreal Tournament 3-who's in? on: November 29, 2007, 12:17:32 PM
Any hype for this game?  I dont remember seeing any threads on it.  It's supposed to be released on December 12th.  Normally I wouldn't be pumped as I despise FPS games on the console, however we've FINALLY got a developer who is willing to include mouse and keyboard support.  I have given up playing the PC upgrade race but I still enjoy playing the occasional shooter.  My laptop runs HL2 decently with some of the settings turned down but I don't even bother to try the more recent releases.  I know some people refuse to entertain the idea of a m+kb in the living room but I have absolutely no problem with it.  I also like the fact that any mod for the PC should also work for the PS3.  I hope that includes full conversions!  Hopefully after Unreal 3, m+kb support will become standard for future games in the genre (and maybe other games, ie RTS).
4676  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Eye of Judgement - Booster Pack(s) on: November 29, 2007, 11:45:25 AM
I think they would have to prove that they actually sent you that much.  Which might be difficult because if they could prove it then they probably wouldn't have screwed up anyways.  You could always say you only received 3 booster packs-I don't see what they could do.

Well I just finished the second mission of the German campaign.  What a fantastic little game! Best TBS game on the DS bar none in my opinion!! I managed to get a three star victory on the Norway campaign again but I came up just short on taking out all five coastal bunkers.  I should have:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Sent a larger force up the right hand flank of Norway and sent my navy up along the coast to take out that last bunker.

Anybody up for a multiplayer game?  I'm looking forward to trying out that side of the game.
