Nope no difference.  I still get disconnected from the EA servers.  Looks like I'm back to blaming EA again ><
Is there any way I could get this download from my computer?  Would it be possible for someone to download it and email it to me by any chance?
4682  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NHL 08 updates on: November 22, 2007, 10:33:41 AM
On the other hand, it could be my router.  But it's more fun to blame EA smile
I can plug directly into my PS3 right?  I'll give that a try tonight.
4683  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 22, 2007, 09:06:15 AM
Well the game is looking pretty good so far! I'm still just going through the tutorials.  But the online part absolutely sucks.  The online community is small enough as it is but their poor implementation of matchmaking just kills any chance that it ever had.  Basically, if I'm understanding correctly, instead of finding an opponent and creating a game, you create a game and then try to match up with an opponent!  But the only way you'll be able to match is if you have the exact same game options!!!  That's just the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard and I think it will completely kill the multiplayer (unless you are playing with friends).
4684  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / NHL 08 updates on: November 22, 2007, 06:37:56 AM
I'm not sure if anyone else is having this problem but everytime I try to go online with NHL 08 (to grab the rosters or whatever) it tells be that I need to download an update first.  Well it's only 8 files but it takes FOR FUCKING EVER and of course for some reason my connection to EA's servers always gets disconnected at around file number three or so.  I don't know what's going but I'n sure those fucks at EA are involved somehow.  Is there anyway I can get this download directly off the net and then transfer it to the PS3 via USB key?  I've looked but I can't seem to find the files anywhere.

+1 to Xmann for easy transaction for DualShock3
4686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 21, 2007, 11:58:19 PM
Ok I've got the game and I've just set up the wireless connection.  It connects ok to the wireless but then it tries to update the game and I get an error.  I get....ooh oops! It works now!

Dammit! I cant catch up to you ! Do you NEVER use your PS3?  I think I've surpassed TML by now.  And only in one week!
4689  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GT Japan store on: November 20, 2007, 02:14:33 PM
Yeah I meant a PM.  I sent you a PayPal request Destructor.  As of now I'm going to be picking up two DualShock3's, both black unless I can't find any then I'll get whites instead.  I don't think it will be too much of a problem. I got unlucky and had to get a white for myself. I don't mind it actually. It makes it real easy to tell at a glance which is the good controller smile
4690  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 20, 2007, 08:24:17 AM
My copy of the game is arriving tonight! It came this afternoon but I was out so they're going to send it again.  Unfortunately my girlfriend has my DS! But at least I can read the manual!
4691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GT Japan store on: November 20, 2007, 08:12:18 AM
Hah well you can always find that if you look hard enough.  I don't know what shipping would be though.  From what I've read they usually just go to karaoke with you smile

Hey Destructor I just sent you an email.  Anyone else interested in getting a DS3 then let me know.  I'm going into Tokyo on Wednesday afternoon to pick them up and I usually only go in once a week if that.
4694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GT Japan store on: November 19, 2007, 04:20:24 AM
I don't know if there is much demand for this or not but if people are interested in getting import games/peripherals from Japan then I could probably hook you guys up.  I just had a seamless transaction with Kevin Grey and was pleased at how easy the whole thing was.  Now that I've dusted off my Paypal account I don't see any reason why I shouldn't keep on using it.  Basically if you want anything that I can walk into my local Best Buy (Bic Camera) and pick up then I can get it for you.  I suppose the big ticket items right now are DualShock 3 controllers.  I bought one for myself and Kevin yesterday and I am loving mine to death right now smile  Those controllers are going for $60 (regular shipping included) to the States if anybody is interested in playing with force feedback before Christmas!  Not a bad deal since they are going for $70 on Play-Asia.  I'm not sure what the shipping time will be to the States but I think the lady told me 7 business days so we'll see when Kevin gets it. I'd like to keep this as simple as possible so Paypal only.  I'd also prefer a transfer of Paypal funds because a credit card transfer would cost an extra 5%.

If you're interested in picking up any games or peripherals or anything then just give me a PM and I could try to give you a quote on the cost!

(oh and despite the title I have no association with Gaming Trend biggrin)

(oh and I realize this maybe should be in the Trade Forum but I don't actually have anything to sell right now so I just thought I'd let everyone know here)
4695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3]Uncharted:Drakes Fortune on: November 19, 2007, 01:48:00 AM
I noticed in the demo that there's an option to switch the language between English and Japanese although when I changed it to Japanese the bad guys just stopped talking.  Is this in the full game as well? Does it actually work? If so then I would just pick up a copy here in Japan.
4696  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: The Official GT Trader Feedback List (updated 9/07) on: November 19, 2007, 01:12:52 AM
+1 for Kevin Grey for Dual Shock3, very speedy communication and payment! smile
4697  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Toy Home on: November 18, 2007, 03:03:07 PM
Well it ain't Gran Turismo but it is kind of a neat distraction.  Only 10 bucks.
4698  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3]Uncharted:Drakes Fortune on: November 18, 2007, 02:05:13 PM
I bought the last one today.  The last black one anyways smile  I live in Tokyo so it's relatively easy to pick them up.
4699  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLM] Timeshift Demo now available on: November 18, 2007, 11:25:30 AM
I just played this demo on the PS3 and I thought it was fantastic! It does have a Halflife 2 feeling to it but I like the weapons a hell of a lot better.  Exploding crossbow bolts, grenades that stick to you and give out a shock before they explode, a real meaty shotgun.  And the destructible environments are fun too smile  I give this demo two thumbs up! I had a lot more fun with it than I did with the resistance demo.  Oh and the timeshifting was fun as hell too! biggrin
Oh and this game supports the DualShock 3's as well.  Maybe that's what made it so fun! smile
4700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Motorstorm on: November 18, 2007, 10:20:52 AM
Is there any way to manually change your name in the game?  In all my races I'm called Player for some reason.  When I had the demo it had my PSN name "Nexxsys" but now that I've bought the Japanese version of the game it only has "Player"
4701  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / More great Japanese TV shows!! on: November 18, 2007, 09:15:35 AM
Human Tetris!!  85% of Japanese TV is absolute shiite IMHO but some of it is just pure comedy gold.  Funniest stuff I've seen on Japanese TV I think (other than Takeshi's Castle/MXC)

Human Tetris I

Human Tetris II

Human Tetris III

Human Tetris IV
4702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3]Uncharted:Drakes Fortune on: November 18, 2007, 09:05:40 AM
I'm still just playing the demo but it got a whole lot better with DualShock 3's!! I loves my DualShock3 smile
4703  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Toy Home on: November 18, 2007, 09:04:44 AM
I dunno.  I kind of enjoyed it.  It was different.  Although I still think most motion sensing is just a fad.  I tried Motorstorm as well with the motion control and found I'd rather use the analog stick.
4704  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS3] Toy Home on: November 18, 2007, 07:46:48 AM
Did anybody try out this demo?  I don't recall seeing any chatter about it on GT.  I downloaded the demo and found it to be quite a good time.  Not exactly sure what kind of game it is-there doesn't seem to be any race involved (except against the time).  You basically drive a toy car around a room that has been set up with all sorts of toys and collect coins and pull of cool jumps and what not.  The full game is only 9.99 so I think I'll probably pick this one up.  It really shows off the Sixaxis qualities quite well (and the Dual Shock 3's if you have one).  Basically the DualShock 3 is the steering wheel.  Also if you flip over on your back you have to shake the controller up and down to flip it back over again.  Quite good fun for a $10 game.

Sorry if this has been posted before.  I'm not sure whether this is a good lesson for wearing your seatbelt or not running from the cops.  Anyways it's gotta rank up there as the most unbelievable thing I've ever seen (after ATB's Japanese dancer that is).

From Gellar's article:

"Update Nov 16: Japanese entertainment market data firm, Media Create, reported the following sales figures for games consoles in Japan for the week November 5 to November 11."

That's amazing when you consider that the 40gig PS3 didn't even come out in Japan until November 11th.  So the bulk of those PS3's were sold in one day.  I wonder if the PS3 will top the Wii this month.

The moms are great too.  Unlike back home (in my experience anyways) even if a Japanese mom is out pushing her kid around in a baby buggy, she is totally DONE UP!  None of this, 'Oh I have a baby kid so I'm going to use that as excuse to look like a slob'.

I can't help but think about the downside of this:

Guy: Come on honey we're going to be late for the game!
Gal: Hold on, I still need to put on my makeup and choose my clothes
Guy: It's just a baseball game! You don't need to put on makeup!
Gal: ..........(continues with her routine)



Yes this is very true.  Sometimes that bothers me about my girlfriend.  I never mention it though.  I value my life.  On the other hand I enjoy the benefits of being able to gaze at all the other 7 million women who also took time to put on their makeup

I thought I'd make a new thread instead of digging up a dead one.  I've been playing the demo of this since I got my PS3.  This game absolutely blows my mind!! It's god damned fantastic! I've never had so much fun with a racer before.  I don't even like racing games.  Anybody still play this one?  I know it was well received by reviewers but lost some marks for lack of tracks and online play (both of which have since been fixed I believe).  If I didn't already have a PS3 then this game would be a system seller for me-it's just that much fun!
4715  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 16, 2007, 03:26:41 PM
I'm not exactly sure why either.  I do know that most people prefer hex grid though and detest squares.  A square can only be attacked from four different sides whereas a hex can be attacked from six.  There are more reasons as well but I'm not exactly sure what they are.
4716  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: My Life in Japan on: November 16, 2007, 03:07:22 PM
Hah that is AWESOME!! In a country full of strange people doing strange things that tops it all.  Even the Japanese people are staring at her! That's no easy feat.  My roommate road down the street in broad daylight in a pikachu suit and not a single person gave him a second glance.
4717  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 16, 2007, 03:01:16 PM
Sweet I'm looking forward to playing it.  I just got notice that my copy shipped from America today.  I'll be up for multiplayer anytime when I get it.  Perhaps this game will open your eyes to the wide world of wargaming? smile
4718  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3]2.0 update tomorrow(thursday) on: November 16, 2007, 10:12:55 AM
If there is a DVD in the PS3 can I watch that on my PSP?  I hooked the PSP up to the PS3 for the first time today.  It was quite cool.  It's pretty awesome how it's possible to say, find out while your at work that there's a great new demo at the PSN store, fire up your PSP and use it to remotely turn on your PS3 and then get your PS3 to download the demo so it will be all ready and waiting for you when you get home.  Heck you might even be able to remotely install the demo although I didn't test that out.

One of my favourite pastimes when I go into Tokyo is just to wait at the train gates and watch them pour off the trains and walk by. They should be selling tickets to be able to see something like that.  And don't even get me started about the high school girls.

And this is where the thread turned from sort of funny to definitely creepy.

Hah.  Easy for you to say-you've never been to Japan smile

And BTW - cover-firing (pushing the aim button to lean out of cover) leaves you way too vulnerable IMHO. All I did was hold down L1 to go into the shoulder stance, keep myself behind a large wall, and fire. There seems to be a 'magic' point where you can aim at the enemy, but he's basically incapable of hitting you back. It doesn't make any sense to write it, but however the camera works, it allows you to see things that your character couldn't possibly see through his eyes to shoot back at.

replayed the demo tonight, tried this, &, yes, even for a lamer like myself, it worked perfectly - more ready than ever now. thanks, d...

Yep after playing the demo about 4 times I started loving the combat.  I hope it comes action filled. The grenade effects are awesome-especially the ringing in the ear effect that you get if you get too close.  Oh and destructible cover is cool too smile
