Wow looks better than when I played it! LOL  So you can take screenshots with your PS3 and post them on the internet?  That would be friggen amazing if every game could do that.
5082  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 4 out of 5 Bachelor Pad guys choose Xbox on: December 15, 2006, 02:43:12 PM

Quote from: DamageInc on December 15, 2006, 02:30:52 PM

Not sure if this would be an Off-Topic item but it is related to consoles. I have been looking at houses in my area to buy, and of the 25 houses I looked at yesterday (many were vacant) 3 of the houses had an Xbox and an Xbox 360, one house had just an Xbox and one had a PS2.

So now, Xbox can use Trident's marketing campaign. "4 out of 5 Bachelor's choose Xbox" (It also shows that they are single as well  :icon_eek:)

PS I forsee this turning out to be a flame war about Xbox versus other consoles and this is not intended. It is merely a satirical look at one man's observation.

Just goes to show that all the smart guys have been taken!  icon_biggrin
5083  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Hockey/soccer on: December 15, 2006, 03:36:35 AM
What's the best of these sports for the PSP?  I noticed that NHL 07 was getting some decent reviews and there doesn't seem to be much else out there for hockey other than the Gretzky series. Anybody played it? Is it fun?  And what about soccer?  I'm thinking about maybe getting a soccer game.  I want it to be fun and pretty realistic at the same time.  I downloaded the demo of World Tour Soccer 06 and I've been having a lot of fun with that one.  I'm wondering if I should pick it up or go with the FIFA/PES iteration. I almost bought WE 10 for the PSP yesterday for only 4600 yen but the japanese language ended up scaring me away.  What do you recommend?
5084  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Regarding the Japanese Blue Dragon Sales Numbers on: December 15, 2006, 12:26:57 AM
What are the reviews like coming out of Japan?  80,000 copies in one week can only be called respectable considering that there are likely only a few more Xbox 360's in circulation.  Like someone else mentioned I bet that most of the copies that will be sold were sold during the first week. I'll be interested in seeing the end of month numbers.
5085  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hetz, is Motorstorm (JPN) playable in the US? on: December 15, 2006, 12:19:20 AM
Well I just played the game yesterday.  I won't comment on the graphics because that is not my area of expertise.  I don't have an HDTV and I couldn't tell you anything about resolution or common complaints about HDTV games.  I do know that that game was fun as hell though!!  And yes lots of car parts go flying.  I also played Resistance and it was about as much fun as any other FPS I've played on a console (ie not fun).  How anybody can play an FPS without a mouse and keyboard is beyond me.

Excellent biggrin

The PSP's going to be THE handheld to own for tactics fans with this, Disgaea: Portable (...I think it's still coming out...) & Jeanne D'Arc in its line-up. 

Well I saw Disgaea:Portable in the store today (albeit in Japan and for about 6000 yen) so I assume that it's coming!

5089  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP demos? on: December 13, 2006, 12:39:17 PM
I played it.  I don't know what I thought about the game but I loved the music! I guess I must be living in Japan for too long.  Strangely enough I'm having a tough as hell time downloading anything from the American Playstation site.  After clicking on "Games and Demos" or whatever it takes me to a screen with a blue background and a PS symbol in the upper right corner with the current time but nothing else!  Am I missing some important drivers or something?  I have Javascript turned on and I have Flash turned on but I'm not seeing anything.
5090  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP demos? on: December 13, 2006, 10:45:23 AM
Well I just got my now un-bricked PSP back from Sony (actually got it back a while ago but it was at the girlfriends). It's updated to 3.01 firmware.  I think I'm going to update it every time there's a new firmware release to keep me from being tempted to downgrade smile  Do the North American PSP's have the Portable TV option?  Mine does but it takes me to a Japanese site.  Great if I want to download Japanese idol videos for 105 yen a pop but I'd like to try some english stuff.

Also, where are all the PSP demos?  For some reason I had the idea that there were going to be tons of them but I'm having difficulty finding more than a couple.  I tried WTS Soccer 06 and found that to be a TON of fun.  I don't know if I'll get the full game but for the price it was certainly worth the download!!

So can anybody hook me up with some demos other than Lemmings, WTS 06, Moto GT, Ridge Racer or Loco Roco?

As an aside, I saw a demo of Jeane D'arc at BicCamera today.  I could have bought it for $35 but didn't think there would be any point since my Japanese knowledge hovers slightly above zero and my knowledge of kanji is even worse.  It looks friggen beautiful on the PSP though.  And if I didn't know better I could have sworn that I saw a Disgaea:Portable game for the PSP.  I had no idea that such a thing existed

Hey guys,
the hype for this game seemed to die down very quickly here at GT.


I think most people are waiting for the bloody patch to be released before they keep playing.  I know I am anyways.
5092  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP System Software Question on: December 11, 2006, 01:55:08 PM
I heard that updating screws up the PSP's ability to play full screen movies off of the memory card.  Well to say "screw up" would suggest that it was accidental.  I think Sony purposely borked it.

Hello Xbox bias anyone?  The PS2 is still oustandingly successful and that is simply chalked up to 'replacement for dead PS2's' ?  Judging by most of the complaints on these forums lately I'd have to say that it's the Xbox 360 that has inflated statistics due to breakdowns!  Perhaps it says a lot that people would rather replace their PS2 than buy an Xbox.

As for the PSP, I dunno it's doin ok.  Obviously Nintendo is kicking it's ass but it's not too far behind the PS2 and Xbox 360 in sales.

Cut the crap with this "Xbox bias" BS.  Hello PS2 bias?  Remember this?

It seems you have an issue when someone prefers the Xbox to the PS2.  You're more guilty of bias than those you are calling out.


LOL Graham has that been burning up inside of you for the past four months?  I'm glad you were finally able to get it out of your system.

I don't doubt that it's real.  You should have seen the manuals I got for my Sony NHD mp3 player and my bicycle.  Both contained a plethora of pictures of the absolutely worst, most tragic things that might happen to you if you used the products.  They were hilarious.  I think I took a pic.  I'll see if I can find it.

I tend to be middle of the road. I don't usually use it in normal conversation but sometimes just to spice things up.  When I'm playing sports or FPS games then that's a whole different ballgame.  In sports I'm swearing at myself and in FPS games I'm swearing at people that kill me.

The Xbox is already a very respectable system for RPG's. There are actually some gamers out there who don't care about JRPG's.

A respectable system for RPG's that you can already play on the PC with better controls and graphics.  Other than that it doesn't have much.  I didn't really recognize any of those games listed in the first post but it certainly looks like a long list!

You know, in the end, it is a BLOG.  He isn't writing for a gaming site, or any particular audience for that matter, he writes because he enjoys sharing his thoughts and opinions.  If you don't like it, don't read it.  I personally look forward to reading new entries at his site, including his stories about Eli.

The way I look at it, as a blogger he's free to write about whatever he wants to.  And as a reader, I'm free to complain about whatever I want to. smile
