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!
4642  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.
4643  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 WISH my PS3 would heat my room.  These goddamn uninsulated houses in Japan are friggen COLD!
4644  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Hot Shots Golf 2 (PSP) on: December 11, 2007, 11:34:41 PM
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.

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.

If someone gets the PS3 version, let me know how the mouse and keyboard work out!

LOL that anagram thing is awesome!  Brendan Sparling gets me :

Barn Spanner Gild

and Barn Sapling Nerd

I don't know why but Barn Spanner Guild really gave me a fit of the giggles.
4648  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 10, 2007, 12:08:41 AM
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.
4649  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.
4650  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 09, 2007, 11:55:37 PM
Ok I locked the voting-I figure anybody who wanted in has gotten in my now.  Here are the official non-scientific poll results!

Xbox 360: 84%
PS3: 37%
Nintendo Wii: 55%
PSP: 49%
Nintendo DS: 68%
4651  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy 12- Yay or Nay? on: December 09, 2007, 03:43:35 AM
Thanks guys-I'm really looking forward to this one now.
4652  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy 12- Yay or Nay? on: December 09, 2007, 01:26:53 AM
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.
4653  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.
4654  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.
4655  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 08, 2007, 11:49:31 AM
Over 20 hours into FF7 right now.  And I'm still on the first bloody disc! I'm making my second trip to the Gold Saucer on the hunt for some keystone and looking for the Temple of the Ancients!
Great, fantastic game.  I can see why so many people love it.  To go from playing something like Final Fantasy 6 one generation to Final Fantasy 7 the next-I doubt we'll ever see that large a leap in presentation ever again.
4656  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! on: December 08, 2007, 05:01:22 AM
Just thought I'd pop in and post my latest gif animation work.  Well it's not actually mine, I only changed two frames but hey I'm still learning!

4658  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Room for gaming during finals week? on: December 08, 2007, 04:28:50 AM
Actually I got the impression that at least 90% of us are long past our 'finals' stage of our life.  Unless of course you're talking about the ultimate 'finals' stage which all living beings must go through eventually...I hope I pass!   icon_confused
4659  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 08, 2007, 04:25:41 AM
Interesting results so far.  We're sitting at about 90% ownership rate of Xbox 360, 75% for Nintendo DS, 50% for Wii and PSP and only about 33% for PS3.
4660  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Star Trek gif on: December 08, 2007, 01:07:16 AM
Wondering if you guys can help me find a Star Trek gif.  I'm pretty sure it was posted on here (probably in the NSFW thread).  It's the one with the black guy who's sitting at the console and screaming. I don't even know what character that is-that would probably help me narrow my search smile
4661  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 08, 2007, 12:55:37 AM
Yay it worked!  crybaby

I've got a PS3, PSP, Nintendo DS
4662  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 08, 2007, 12:55:05 AM
A poll over on QT3 got me thinking about just what the console demographics over here are.  The poll over at QT3 confirmed for me what I had always assumed which was that there is about 100% 360 ownership and 4% PS3 ownership.  I'm just curious as to what it's like over here.  There doesn't seem to be any option for multiple voting on these forums though.  I've set it so that you can vote up to 5 times but that may have to be 5 different times. We'll see.
4663  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NHL 08 updates on: December 07, 2007, 08:26:49 AM
Still getting no love from EA.  How long did it take to download the updates anyways?  I have 8 to download and the first three take FOREVER (like 25 minutes) and then I get disconnected from EA's servers.  I'm having a lot o problems just getting adjusted to the controls too.  I came straight from NHL 2k3 and just getting adjusted is KILLING me!
4664  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?
4665  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Odyssey - new trailer and impressions on: December 07, 2007, 07:13:24 AM
Nice looking game but the lip synching is terrible!  Will that be fixed?
4666  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.
4667  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
4668  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.
4669  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSN update (including the PSP Store for PC) on: December 07, 2007, 12:12:54 AM
Cool free themes!  Do I have to wait a week to download them? slywink
4670  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.
4671  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Free content will now be withheld from Xbox Live Silver accounts for a week on: December 05, 2007, 11:49:25 PM
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.
4674  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.
4675  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 05, 2007, 02:35:06 PM
Well I'm 8 hours in and we've just left Midgar and Cloud is telling us about his backstory.  Quite good stuff-I can't remember any of it hardly!

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!

That's fine-just don't screw it up for the rest of us real Canucks!  Mind your manners and treat the ladies well.  Oh and brush up on your Toronto Maple Leaf history.  A true Canadian bleeds blue and white-don't let those hicks out West convince you any different. smile

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
4680  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
