Didn't she just avoid being assassinated a few weeks ago?  It doesn't take a prognosticator to have seen this one coming a mile away.  All they need to do now is take care of the other one, whatshisname.

We hit the TRU buy 2 get 1 in late October very hard.

That will keep them busy for a couple of weeks  eek.

I've never gotten a video game in my life from my parents.  To get 10 all in one Christmas-wow.  Honestly it seems like a bit of a waste-I mean, how many games can you play at one time? anyways?

Can you play on servers anywhere in the world?  Because I would probably buy the North American version of the game (downloadable version) but I don't want to be stuck playing on American servers when I live in Japan.

Interesting blurb on penny arcade about mods:

Quote
Mods need to come over on memory cards for some inexplicable reason. Indeed, gamers lured by the promise of the $400 forty gig machine (or those who purchased the twenty-gig, as I did) don't even have the slots to use mods built in. Oh, you weren't aware? I'm sure they'll be glad to hear that.

Looks like there's been a "correction" issued by the Penny Arcade guys, specifically Tycho, on this matter.  And I say "correction" in quotation marks because it's the most half assed thing I've ever read.  Basically he blames Epic's Mark Rein for his being wrong.  Mark seems to have written a perfectly courteous email and Tycho responds with sarcasm.  Mark suggests that you don't need a memory card to transfer mods, that you can use any old USB key or even an Ipod and Tycho completely skips over the first part and makes a sarcastic reply about needing to install Linux on your music player before you can transfer mods. 

I must say I've lost a fair amount of respect for the PA guys.  I'll keep visiting their site because they make funny comics but from now own I'll be taking everything they say with a large grain of salt.

There's a Disgaea 3 and it's on the PS3?  Wow that's news to me!

And SC, you got the game on Christmas and you're two thirds of the way through it already????
4647  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Jeanne D'Arc Impressions on: December 26, 2007, 01:08:16 PM
I'm on Chapter 6 now which I guess means I might be about 2/3 of the way through.  This might be one of the first games that I actually finish since beating FFT about 8 years ago (yes I'm bad at finishing games!)

It's got a few quirks but I've enjoyed the ride so far!  Story is a bit bleh for me and I feel little attachment to most of the characters.  However things start picking up around Rouen.  I hope I can beat this so that I can finally open up Brave Story New Traveler!

Sorry for being lazy, but is the MP online?  Any other options?

It has 8 tracks, and 8-player online capability although I haven't tried online yet-just splitscreen multiplayer.  Apparently the game has leaderboards as well.
4658  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Toy Home on: December 22, 2007, 04:30:36 AM
Well I ended up buying this yesterday.  I had a friend over and was showing him some of the games for it.  We played a little of Toy Home demo.  We both tried the single player portion once and then we tried the multiplayer- God DAMN that multiplayer is fun as HELL!!!  I bought the full game online right away. It's like Mario Kart but with no actual race! The whole point to the multiplayer game is to race around collecting all these coins.  You can also collect special power ups which give you abilities (crayon homing missiles, proximity homing bombs, spring jump, invisible, 20 ton weight that you can drop on people.  If you run into the other players or hit them with missles or bomb or what not, they'll lose a lot of the coins that they've collected and you can race around and steal them.  For 10 bucks it's a fantastic party game.  I've never had so much fun before-it was fantastic!
4659  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Joining the 360 Sucks Crowd... on: December 22, 2007, 04:19:20 AM
I think eventually yes.  I suppose EVERY console is doomed to fail eventually but not before that specific generation is over!  I would guess that over the next couple of years we'll see a 100% failure ratio for the original 360's.

I saw that this game has sold about 120k copies.  What do you consider that?  Success? Failure?  Enough to warrant a sequel?
4661  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The PS3 Unreal Tournament 3 thread (first user-created map now available!) on: December 21, 2007, 10:25:55 AM
Yep I was right.  As much as I like Penny Arcade, they are full of shit this time.

Quote
You will have to cook ypur mods for the PS3 specifically. You will also need removable media (memory card, USB drive, etc) to transfer the mod from your PC to your PS3.

If they bought a PS3 that didn't come with any USB slots then someone must have really fucked them in the ass.  Either that or those Penny Arcade guys aren't quite as bright as I give them credit for.  Shame on them for spreading rumors like that.
4662  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The PS3 Unreal Tournament 3 thread (first user-created map now available!) on: December 21, 2007, 10:19:29 AM
I don't really get that.  I didnt even know there were a such thing as PS3 memory cards.  Can you not simply use a USB flash drive?  If you can then I don't see what the big deal is.  Any self-respecting PC owner probably has a couple of those lying around at the very least.
4663  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's your GOAT of the year for 2007? on: December 20, 2007, 11:19:04 PM
Obviously we need a third category.  GOTY, EGAD (Exceptionally Gawd-Awful Drivel) and OH GOD! (Over-Hyped Game Overall Disappointing!)

There ya go.  Now we can discuss this civilized-like.  Feel free to make the new threads.

Here's another question-how do I get it to play ALL of my music files?  It always just plays the one piece of music and then stops.  I want to to randomly play ALL of my music!
4666  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New firmware for PS3 (2.10) - More videos supported on: December 20, 2007, 11:39:23 AM
I'm using Nero Media Share.  I didn't bother scanning for files-I just added the folders that I wanted shared. It was easy as pie.  My only problem is that when Nero is transcoding on the fly the video files are absolutely unwatchable.  I can't seem to pause the video and let it buffer either.
4667  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New firmware for PS3 (2.10) - More videos supported on: December 20, 2007, 09:18:45 AM
Does the PS3 not allow the stream to buffer?  Because when Nero transcodes it to MPEG 2 (since the PS3 wont play my Xfiles avi's) it's choppy as hell.  I thought maybe I could just hit the pause button and let it buffer like you can with YouTube but for some reason I can't pause.
4668  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New firmware for PS3 (2.10) - More videos supported on: December 20, 2007, 07:46:24 AM
Bingo! I'm not having much luck with the video though.  My X-Files episodes say "data unsupported" or something like that.  But I'm pretty sure they're Xvid/AVI or whatever.
4669  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New firmware for PS3 (2.10) - More videos supported on: December 20, 2007, 07:31:42 AM

Hmm, not sure how you can say that.  DQ is bigger, sure, but AFAIK every FF title still sells more in Japan than the US. 

Well I admit my evidence is only anecdotal.  Usually when I ask people if they like Final Fantasy they say no, not really but they love Dragon Quest.

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

Just for clarification, PS3's can't play multi-region PSOne games can they?  I know they can't play multi-region PS2 games.

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".
4677  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Square Enix announces US release dates on: December 18, 2007, 01:32:36 PM

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.
