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!


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.


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.
5095  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.

5106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Hockey/soccer on: December 19, 2006, 04:00:38 AM
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.
5107  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.
5108  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.
5111  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Motorstorm Impressions on: December 18, 2006, 01:49:15 AM
Let's get back to the game shall we?  I'm looking forward to this game since it has been appraised by the critics and so far all that they have been able to agree on is that mud doesn't look very good.

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.
5113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resistance with M/KB? on: December 17, 2006, 01:16:06 AM
Sacrilege!!!  How could anybody say that! I couldn't even move around using that stupid gamepad.  Nevermind get the crosshairs actually lined up with any of the enemies.
5114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Resistance with M/KB? on: December 16, 2006, 11:44:18 PM
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

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
5118  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?
5119  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.
5120  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.
