Holy crap the PS2 is outselling the Xbox 360?  I guess that makes sense what with all the great games coming out for the PS2 lately.

Just out of curiousity Kobra, how many games do you go through in a month?  That is one hell of a hobby!

100 points = $1.25

So basically to get all those cheats, it would cost approximately another $25 on top of what you already paid for the game.  That is just sad. Can you keep reusing the cheat or once that $50,000 dollars is gone do you have to send in another $1.25?

Name: Favor Pack – 3 Favor Missions
Available in: All regions
Price: 250 Points

Get over 100% game completion! (Note: All three missions have in-game prerequisites which you can view at http://godfather.ea.com.)

 

Maybe somebody could educate me about this.  Are 100 points equal to $1.00?
If I were to use all of these cheats (which previously have always been free) how much more would it cost me  on top of what I already paid for the game?
5206  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: First PS3 Ad? on: October 20, 2006, 01:29:46 PM
Weren't the XBOX 360 ads just as ridiculous?  It seems like these days it's not cool to show the actual games in motion.  People looking at the sky or a green X being slashed on the screen is enough.

Now it's got me wondering if they have American-made cars in Japan..  icon_biggrin


Actually no they don't and who can blame them? US cars are trash compared to Japanese cars.  Heck even Americans are buying Japanese more than American these days! A status symbol car for Japanese is usually German, either a Mercedes or a BMW.  You see lots of those over here.  You can even see the odd Volkswagen as well.
5209  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: EA now offering cheat codes as microtransactions on: October 17, 2006, 12:37:13 AM
Can we still go to Gamefaqs and get codes for free or has EA removed that ability?  Say all you want about how it's your choice to buy the code but if you cant still look it up on the internet then they're not really giving you much of a choice anymore.  Perhaps there'll come a day when you can no longer input codes into your games?  Cheats either have to be unlocked through gameplay or activated through some main server after you pay for it.

Actually it wasn't just the developers in that previous poll.  I went back to Bill's blog and found where he sourced it.  Here's the actual article: http://www.next-gen.biz/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3403&Itemid=2

From Bil's blog:

Then there was the article last week about Famitsu's latest survey where about 80% of everyone just don't give a damn about the PS3. Here's a brief summary of the poll results.
Gamers (216 participants)
Here’s what gamers said are the consoles they’re most interested in buying:
73.6%: Wii
16.7%: PS3
9.7%: neither

Retailers (85 participants)
Of retailers, here are the consoles they find most appealing:
65.9%: Wii
18.8%: neither
15.3%: PS3

Game makers (33 participants)

Is nobody bother by the fact that for a $400 or $500 dollar machine, you only get a measly 3 month warranty?  What happened to the good ol' 1 year warranties?
5212  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Interesting poll in Famitsu Weekly on next-gen systems on: October 16, 2006, 05:30:58 AM
Wasnt there a famitsu poll a while back that suggested that the Japanese were way more excited about the Wii than the PS3?  Looks like the PS3 is gaining some ground-either that or the Wii is losing it.

What's so bad about the second game?  Looking at Gamerankings, Gamespot basically gave the exact same score for every game and it seemed to do well enough with other reviewers as well.
5215  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xenosaga impressions on: October 14, 2006, 12:23:22 AM
What do you think about the Xenosaga series?  I've owned the first game for at least 3 damned years and the furthest I've gotten in it is 1h 27m!!  Last night I got inspired to play through it again and beat it this time.  I'm still in the tutorial but I'm hoping that I'll like it enough to go out and get the next two in the series.  For those of you that have played, what do you think?  I love the idea of a continuous story over three chapters, a trilogy if you will.  I know there are some long cutscenes but that doesn't really bother me as long as the story is good.

Well, I am interested to see what MS does with the live service after this comes out.  I wonder if they will make live free and or with this new update that happens next tuesday, what Cool things they will add.

Not a chance, M$ is making to much $$$ from that service.

Really? I don't know about that.  I mean that only amounts to $4 per month per user.  They're basically providing the same service as companies like Blizzard who charge $15 per month.  I can't imagine that Online service is their bread and butter.

For anyone intersted, Okami sold 87k last month which is decent if not really a hit.  It will likely end up selling more in North America than Japan. 

I actually can't find it ANYWHERE in japan!  I havent actually asked for it but I never see it on the shelves.  I asked a couple of kids what they thought of Okami (I'm assuming that's what it's called in Japan) and they had no idea what I was talking about!

Wow you must have some setup to have it maxed out and still run like silk.

Where does he say "Its a pretty good RTS"?  All I am reading are more glowing comments on that blog, unless there is some fine print I am missing that your eyes are picking up, it sure sounds all glowing to me....

I was hoping to have Paraworld impressions up today, but they're not ready. The reason they're not ready is because I'm playing the game almost like an RPG, where you spend huge amounts of time just exploring.

This has never happened to me before.

The game world is so vibrant and so beautiful that I don't want to miss a single thing.

I'm just saying that compared to his previous comments (in June maybe?) that it's a bit underwhelming.  That's great that he loves exploring a beautiful map but that doesn't make it the greatest RTS of all time.  He hasn't really talked about it since, which is something I wish I could say for that goddamn Dwarve game that he keeps going on about endlessly.

He didn't really say that much though.  I think maybe the game is not quite as good as he was predicting.  I wonder if he'll mention it again in his blog.  According to some of his previous entries, he was predicting that this game would be the second coming of Christ.  Then he gets it and basically says "it's a pretty good rts" and sort of sweeps it under the rug.

Hmm yeah how many games exactly allow you to "spawn" copies so you can play against each other in a LAN?  I remember the original Warcraft let you do this way way back in time.
God knows don't get me wrong, I'm no angel so I'm not going to go giving lectures about purchasing games but it does seem a little silly to think that because you bought the game, that gives you the right to as many people as you want play it for free.  I mean, how is that any different for buying the game and then burning 5 copies and giving it to all my friends so that we can play online together?  Like I said, not judging you here but your protestations do seem a little bit ridiculous.

I don't want to typecast the Japanese but I suspect it has something to do with the lack of anime highschool girl panties.  After living in Japan for one and a half years I have to say that I've come to expect such high production values in all my entertainment products as well! smile
5227  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NBA 2K7 vs Live 07 on: September 28, 2006, 12:42:33 AM
All this proves is that assigning a game a number is ridiculous.  All sites should be like Wargamer.com which don't provide any ratings.  You read the review and see what the guy has to say.  With that said, if the requirements for a 10 do not include the game being "perfect" then I don't see why it can't be given a 10.  In fact I dont think there has ever been a perfect game which means we probably could just reduce the scale from 1 to 9.

I honestly don't believe that either the PS3 nor Oblivion will be available on the PS3 launch date.

Well I've only actually played one preseason match (Leafs kicked the Bruins' asses 11-1)  I didnt notice any icing problems.  Is that perhaps because you have it set to watch the whole game whereas I only have the most important replays shown?  Or are you looking at the end game stats?  I dont know whether or not to get this game or not.  The problem is that as much as I want to like these managing games, I really tend to get bogged down in all the details.  Still the 2D engine is enough reason to get the game itself I think!  Now you can actually watch a game and see whats going on with a puck that actually moves around on the ice instead of simply "portaling" from place to place like it did in the old game.  For $30 Euros it's not a huge hit.  I'm sure most of you wasted more on the latest update of Madden smile
