Wow! They sold out all 24 copies?  Way to go MS!

 icon_lol

Blue Dragon was MS big chance over there and after a large first week, it dropped like a rock. Gears of War will not be the savior for the 360 over there. They need to cut their losses and stop throwing away money by trying to force Japan to accept the 360 as a legit system as they do the Wii and PS3. It just will never happen.

Any hard figures on that?  I'd like to see them.  Not that I don't believe you, just I'm curious to see what kind of rock we're talking about.

Well, it's not like people can say she would be worse than the last guy to hold the job.

I don't think anyone wants to test that theory.

And please, Bush the worst president we've had?  He's bad, but we have had MUCH worse.


Worse, yes.  He hasn't committed any serious felonies that we know of so he can't be the worst.  But the DUMBEST?  Most INEPT?  Well he pretty much takes the cake.

Yes, she's hardly a girl.  She was a 28-year old mother and was not a victim of anybody.  Sure it was a stupid contest and the radio station will get whatever it deserves but at the same time nobody forced her to drink any water.

So the price of a 360 goes from being $399 to $399+$300 for the non-gimped 360?  That certainly makes the PS3 look like a steal!  icon_smile

Slippery slope. Fortunately you have a choice of not buying these games.

Which part is the slippery slope?

The part about paying for extra content from a game that is not an MMORPG.  People are arguing that a piece of horse armour and the entire multiplayer portion of a game are not related.  I don't see how they are not.  That is the whole point of the slippery slope-it starts out very small and easy to swallow.  If it had have started with a developer chopping off the entire multiplayer portion of the game we would have told them to go straight to hell.  But they started small.  Couple bucks for some armour, couple hundred points for some cheat codes, a few more bucks for a small, extra mission in a game.  Then it's 'off with the multiplayer'! And we say, meh well I wont pick it up first day.

Advanced Wars Dual Strike.  29 Missions.  Amazing AI. Incredible unit variety.  Superb balancing.  Neat extras. Brilliant skirmish scenarios. BRAVO!

Questions:

4. Can anyone think of a TBS game that is as good or better- on any platform?  I could toss in Disciples 2 (my all time favorite PC game) and HOMMIII (really my first TBS game), but the balancing and excellent AI of AWDS tops them all in my book.


You could try playing a real TBS game for instance.  My first recommendation would be Battles in Italy.  Almost as user-friendly as AW but fifty times as deep.  I liked AW2 but those annoying brats you had to listen to between every mission bugged the hell out of me.  So did the lack of air or arillery supply/enemy movement interdiction options smile

I didn't get any.  For some reason, I really don't like receiving games as gifts.  I'd rather have something more personal -- or even better, get clothes so that I don't have to buy them myself.  There is something about clothes shopping that I abhor.

Go to a resale shop, you can get a whole bag of clothes for $10.00..  I would rather receive games or loot than something I can get almost free myself.

Come on man, are you kidding?

Heck no, why would I be kidding? I buy all my clothes at the resale shops, you can find some great stuff there, a lot of it with price tags still on them even.(assuming you have nice shops near you - we have 4 really good ones)  I couldn't imagine paying $30-50+ for a lousy shirt, thats just insane.

I always wondered how you could buy 150 games a month.  Still though, it's beyond ridiculous.  Even if they only cost $1 each the only way you could possibly even give each game a decent amount of attention would be if you lived in a world with 36 hour days and and had no job or wife or kids.  Your Christmas loot list is enough to even shame Hetz.

Yeah but again, many people point to the 360 launch last year as a much larger success than the PS3 launch this year.  If the PS3 launched and sold more, I'd say those folks are wrong.

gellar

I think alot of people point to the launch of the Titanic as a much larger success than the PS3 launch this year.

The PS3 has failed to generate any type of positive buzz.  Just about all of the news about the PS3 (backwards compatability, scaling, November shipping numbers, launch night uglyness, controllers bugging out, PS3's being infected with the ebola virus, etc), has turned the PS3 into a joke on gaming boards, and an overpriced movie player to alot of consumers.

I have seen alot more PS3's available for sale than Wiis. Either Sony is shipping PS3s in bunches, or people aren't flocking to stores to buy them.  I guess we'll find out in January when the numbers come out.

Well technically, if you compare it to the price of a standalone Blueray player it's actually an underpriced movie player.
5059  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Pirates win again on: December 27, 2006, 04:43:39 PM
Well I've already bricked my PSP once trying to downgrade so I'm not going to try it again I don't think.  I have a couple of PS1 games kicking around (FFT I'm looking at you), that I would LOVE to play on my PSP but it looks like I'm out of luck.

It's actually a pretty good game except for the fact that it WILL crash on you fairly regularly.  Nothing sucks harder than leading a team 1-0 in manager mode with only a few minutes to go and the PSP suddenly shuts down.  God damn EA.

Read the press release, One track, 10 initial cars to unlock and then some tuned cars to unlock. Not much more than a demo. It's what they had working for GTHD and instead of going forward with that they are releasing this as a freebie teaser for GT5.

Sorry I must be completely blind but where does it say one track only?  After rereading about 5 times I was finally able to see where it says "features an all new course." lol
That doesn't necessarily mean though that that is the only course.  Usually when most releases say something new is included you usually take for granted that all the other stuff is istill there! lol

Unfortunately I just have never been able to get into GT despite how amazing it might be-it's just too realistic I guess.

Picked up FIFA 07.  So far I'm quite pleased.  It seems to have the critical combination of realism and fun and also has a good management sim.
Anybody know a good place to go where I can ask questions (especially about the management sim part)?   The Gamefaq forums aren't too busy.

That said I also recommend Sony's game.  It was fun although there were a few things I don't like.  Only 2 minute halves?  That's a bit too short for me.  Passes are always dead on.  No league or licensed teams.
5071  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Hockey/soccer on: December 19, 2006, 03:59:04 AM
Well I'm going to go with FIFA 07 I think.  It looks like the best combination of gameplay and depth (from a management/licensing point of view).  Unfortunately it's probably going to cost be about 6800 yen (plus 900 yen to get there and back!)  My roommate is going home for Christmas but he wont be back until January and I want something to play for the holidays.  Perhaps I'll get him to pick up NHL 07 for me.  It seems to be the only hockey game worth getting at the moment.
5072  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 controls and FPS on: December 18, 2006, 01:00:53 PM
Yes I'm referring to the Playstation only.  The PS2 had a much vaunted mouse and keyboard support-except for the fact that no one supported it.  Is that going to happen again this time around?  Someone please tell me that Resistance is mouse/kb compatible!

So can you NOT use a mouse and keyboard for Resistance?  I made a similar thread just yesterday.  I thought most games would be able to be played with mouse and keyboard this time around.  Hopefully the same thing doesn't happen as last generation.

just curious Canuck, is Resistance the first FPS you've tried on a console gamepad or something?  cause that's what it sounds like

personally mouse+KB will always reign supreme for me, but everyone should have at least tried a few FPSes on consoles by now

Nope.  Also played Goldeneye (a little bit) and some Medal of Honor for the original PS.  I can't understand how anybody can play with a gamepad but I don't doubt that some of you have forced yourselves to get used to it.  It would be interesting if there was an icon on the score to show which users were using keyboards and which were using gamepads.  I'd like to see who's owning who.
5077  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resistance with M/KB? on: December 17, 2006, 01:16:06 AM

Well I tried playing the demo of Resistance the other day and absolutely hated it.  I just can't understand how anyone could willingly play any kind of FPS game using a gamepad.  That said, has anyone tried plugging a mouse and keyboard into the PS3 and playing it that way?  Does it essentially play just like a computer game (ie being able to up the sensitivity and everything?)

I didn't play the track with all the mud but I'm guessing that it's not very noticeable when you're actually playing the game and moving at 120km/h
