Impressive.  I can't really see the Zelda comparisons myself.  Now if you said it reminded you of playing a Japanese painting then I would be apt to agree with you!

The way I see it you only have yourself to blame if you buy addons.  If people stopped buying gutted games then I'm sure the developers would stop their little economic experimenting.

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

Sooo happy that they've got Hayter onboard.  He gets some hate, but to me he *is* Snake/Big Boss.  Though I'm not sure how he'll work for "Old Snake".

Awesome seeing Foxhound back in action too. 

Did Hayter disappear?  I thought he did all the games.

Is available for download now.  Anybody else going to try it out?  FM 2007 is great but I really don't know jack about soccer.  I'm looking forward to this new version now that they actually have a decent 2D game in it.  Head over to and check it out!

LOL I wasn't trying to usurp anything-the other thread was more of an "expectations" thread than an "impressions" thread and it already had 84 replies.  All the impressions would have gotten lost in the noise.  Now I'm going to bump this up to get it close to the top than that "other" spinoff thread.  icon_biggrin

5332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Japanese DS Lite Questions on: September 16, 2006, 10:26:28 AM
I haven't checked recently (check's the Bic Camera website as I type...)  Hmm yes the price is 16,800 yen.  I don't know about availability because I bought one on Day 1 and haven't looked back since.  Don't bother going to Akihabara though (unless you want to of course) as you aren't going to get any discounts.  A DS costs what a DS costs and that's that.  However I would suggest you go to Bic Camera (they're everywhere) and I would be happy to let you buy it using my Bic Camera card and I would take those 10% points smile
I've never had a problem with the battery.  I suspect that the DS that you buy in America is basically exactly the same DS as the one that you buy in Japan anyways.

Jeez Graham from your biased comments I'd assume that you were trying to start a console war.  Everybody else has been very objective.
I'd hardly call my posts biased or more biased than anyone else's in here.

I explained my reasons why I would go with the Xbox over the PS2, including reasons for the controller.  Just because it seems like a few more people might say that the PS2 is better when I think that the Xbox would be better suited for Crux, that doesn't mean that I'm more biased than anyone else.

It's just that you are making some more personal opinions rather than answering the original posters question about what system he should choose depending on the type of games he likes.  I'm sure it's not intentional but if it was completely objective then I would have nothing to bite which is what I'm doing now:

The Xbox certainly does not have the market cornered for quality as you imply by suggesting that the PS2 wins for quantity.  The fact is that the PS2 has the most quantity of games and the most quality games.

You suggest that the Xbox has the best controller.  That causes me to reflex with the fact that the PS2 has by far and away the best controller.  Far better than that ginormous thing the Xbox calls a controller.

You also made a ridiculous statement about how support for the PS2 is going to die off just like the Xbox.  Of course it will-in 3 freakin years, unlike Xbox's instantaneous death right after the release of the 360.  Support for the Playstation went on forever after the PS2 came out.

Anyways those are my reactions to your statements-reactions I probably wouldnt be having if I felt your statements were completely objective like "ok you like racing and sports, you should get an Xbox.'

It's not.  They're both goddamned retarded and you never ever want to admit to a girl that you have interests in that you do this.
5336  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Behold the 360 laptop! on: September 11, 2006, 12:58:12 PM
Does it actually work like a laptop?  or is it basically a Xbox 360 that looks like a laptop?
5337  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The 360 Killed the previous Generation on: September 11, 2006, 12:55:21 PM
Yeah the Xbox 360 killed the Xbox.  Same as how the Gamecube killed the N64.  See that's why backwards compatibility is so important.  I'm not sure that "Sony milking the PS2" is such a bad thing after all.
5338  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Casual Gaming: Dwarf Fortress (was Virtual Villagers) on: September 08, 2006, 11:51:22 PM
It wouldnt close on me when when I hit the "X".  I had to use the task manager. I don't see how anyone can criticize the PSP for long start up times when this game takes 8 times as long!
Anyways have fun! I really regret that I can't play this game as it is obviously very cool!  Maybe they'll be able to update it a little as soon as the 1970's get here!

No Duke 3D?  Wasn't it the next big game after Doom?  It should have at least gotten an honorable mention.
5340  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Casual Gaming: Dwarf Fortress (was Virtual Villagers) on: September 08, 2006, 03:09:32 PM
I tried but I just couldn't do it.  I'm sorry but anybody who says that a game that uses ASCII is going to garner GOTY awards is absolutely CRAZY!! It could be an amazing game but who cares if it's completely inaccessible to most people?  Games for me need to do two things: they need to have the mouse incorporated somehow and they need to have graphics that at least look somewhat like what it's supposed to be.  I mean I'm not asking for much, maybe For Liberty style graphics.  I know that some of you guys can do the whole Matrix thing but I unfortunately will never mistake a "period" for a tree or a plant.

Rodney Mullen definitely looked weird when he talked.  The graphics overall looked better than previous titles, but that is to be expected.  It certainly didn't strike me as all that "next-gen" as I would expect, but it'll do. 

It looks like his mouth is too big.  What is that phenomenom called where the more humanlike a character looks the more obvious it's 'non-human' traits are?
5342  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My bricked PSP on: September 07, 2006, 12:51:01 AM
Since I still have part of my 1 year warranty left I was wondering if I could get Sony to flash my PSP or whatever and get it working again.  I just have no idea about Sony's customer service and I have no idea what kind of evidence bricking leaves.  Can I get my girlfriend to call them up and say it just wouldn't start up one day?  Or will they take one look at it and say 'what the hell, you were trying to downgrade to 1.5!'  I don't play my PSP much anyways but I figure I might as well get it fixed if I still can. (and yes I perfectly realize that trying to downgrade voids your warranty so no moral lectures please smile  I want to know if Sony can tell what I was doing)

Well that's the risk you run I guess!  I'm not devastated.  I guess it will have to go back into the drawer where it's been sitting for the past 6 months smile
5344  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Firmware 2.71 now cracked... on: September 02, 2006, 05:37:31 PM
I'm assuming it's bricked anyway.  The green light comes on but nothing comes up on the screen.

I actually just upgraded to 2.71 and it's pretty cooL!  It's got Sony Portable TV which is cool but everything is Japanese ><
I have working knowledge of hirigana and katakana but I don't know any kanji and anyways it's just too much work trying to slog through all that ><
5348  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Firmware 2.71 now cracked... on: September 02, 2006, 04:31:40 PM
Well I've had my PSP for about 8 months now and I hardly play it so if it bricks then I guess I'll just take that risk.  Only problem is that the 1.50 downdater file that I need is nowhere to be found.  Everybody says to get someone with a 1.5 version to go through all the hoops to produce the 1.50 downdater file.  Does anybody actually have this file?  If you could email it to me then I'd be happy to risk my PSP and provide results here.

Is that the screen where you can change the options and stuff like that.  Because it always boots up to that screen.  Funny that I didn't see it then-probably because the sun outside was so damned bright!! ><

Yeah comparing Windows 98 and Madden 2005 is a bit of a silly comparison.  I'm sure that if, one year after you bought it, EA made you pay another $50 "licensing fee" to keep playing BF2 or if Steam made you pay another $70 to play your copy of HL2 online then you'd be screaming bloody murder too.
