5321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] 'second shipment' = Absolutely Nothing on: December 02, 2005, 11:48:16 PM
Quote from: "semiconscious"
pre-emptive, shock'n'awe-filled first strike, deploying fewer units than expected, followed by major nelson declaring 'mission accomplished' (from the deck of an ipod)...

i'm not sure, but i think i know what happens next...

5322  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EGM Review Scores - Jan 2006 Issue on: November 28, 2005, 01:39:12 AM
Everyone knows EGM is a piece of garbage magazine.  I wouldn't read one even if someone gave it to me.
5323  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's going to happen to the Xbox? on: November 28, 2005, 01:23:10 AM
Just out of curiousity, I was wondering what will happen now that the Xbox360 is out.  Will it basically die like the N64 as all the developers shift to the Xbox 360?  Or will it keep getting new games like the original Playstation did?  Have any game companies commented about this?
5324  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Quake 4 360 Review Up on: November 22, 2005, 02:02:52 AM
27 second reload??  How dare they claim to have more powerful hardware than computers.  I can tell you one thing, if it took me 27 seconds to quickload a game everytime I died I sure wouldn't be playing it for long.

You don't get a dvd with it though.  And it isnt all glossy like the US version.

You can get ICO extremely cheap-even the brand new copies and it's a brilliant game-better than Prince of Persia in my opinion (I'm sure lots of people would disagree with me though.)
5328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF Advent Children... on: September 11, 2005, 11:21:26 PM
Anyways! Back to my original question.  Has anyone here ever imported Japanese movies?  Do they ever have english subtitles?  I've looked on the back but I can't see (or understand) anything that looks remotely like english.
5329  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF Advent Children... on: September 10, 2005, 12:38:56 AM
...comes out in 3 days over here. biggrin
It costs approximately $45 US though-a little pricey for a 100 minute movie in my opinion.  Still I might pick it up.  Does anybody know if the Japanese version has english subtitles?  Or is that asking too much?

Commentary in ALL sports games IS terrible.  Why? because once you play it enough you realize that they always say the exact same thing.  Do I want to listen to a broken record?  Nope not really.  

All commentary I've witnessed often: falls behind in the play, misses important events, puts the wrong emotion into a given situation (ie normal commentary when they should be excited, or excited commentary when nothng it really happening,) and often just boils down to saying the the players name. "Roberts, Linden, Sakic)

All it does is remind me that I'm playing a video game instead of making me feel that I'm playing a real game or at least watching a real game.

Do yourself a favour and turn off the commentary and listen to the swish of skates and bodies slamming into the boards instead.

My soon-to-be-ex-wife is taking it as soon as the X360 comes out (which is why I'm getting one on release date). So it's become the exbox. (and THAT is a double entendre slywink )


Who gets the games?  Or is it an every other weekend kind of thing?
5333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / "Fanboys" on: September 05, 2005, 02:33:01 AM
You have to remember that the average age on those sites is about 14 years old.  Would you enjoy hanging around with a 14 year old in real life?  No?  Well it's best not to do it on a forum either.  I go to Gamefaqs when I need a FAQ and that's about it.
5334  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 is dead! PS3 has keyboard/mouse support!!!! on: September 05, 2005, 12:55:13 AM
I seriously doubt they'll make you buy their own keyboard and mouse.  A USB port is a USB port.  Sony doesn't make you buy Dual Shock controllers do they?  How about memory cards?  Or remote controls even for that matter.

As for having your friends over, nobody said you HAVE to use a keyboard or mouse-just use your controller then for god sakes! lol
And yes a keyboard is a little bit awkward on a couch.  I'm wondering if maybe you could do a controller/mouse set up.  You could use the controller in one hand for WASD and jump/crouch and you could use the mouse for looking and firing.  I'm sure most of us have optical mouses (mice?) these days and you can pretty much use those things anywhere with a high degree of precision.

Don't most people have coffee tables in your living rooms?  As long as the wife doesn't mind- you could always use that for the keyboard I suppose.

Anyways I cannot possibly see this as a bad thing.  FPS games just were not meant to be played with a controller.  I don't buy the argument that 'yes the control really sucks but as long as it sucks equally for everyone then it's fun.'

*edit*  I'm also not sure why we're comparing Splinter Cell to a first person shooter.  There really is no need for analogue movement.  Have you played HL2 lately?  Not exactly a lot of reason to creep along.  If you want to do that you can always just duck/move
5335  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / "Fanboys" on: September 05, 2005, 12:39:44 AM
I already used it to describe Hetz biggrin

I think it's perfectly acceptable but if you go to forums like Gamefaqs then you'll see it so overused that it means absolutely nothing anymore.  You probably don't see it here so much because most people own more than one console and therefore aren't really fanboys.
5336  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 is dead! PS3 has keyboard/mouse support!!!! on: September 03, 2005, 11:36:15 PM
How exactly will it unbalance online play?  Everyone will have equal opportunity to get themselves a keyboard and mouse-I'm sure they could probably just rip them out of their PC while they play.  If you choose to play with a controller when you could play with a mouse/keyboard then that's your problem.

The only possible unbalancing problems I could see is if Xbox owners and PS3 oweners could play on the same server.

I think this is great news.  For one thing rather than having to upgrade my computer every time a new FPS is released, I can just play it on the console instead.  I've always wanted this but the terrible controllers always made it not worth it.

Another big winner will be games like RPG maker where you're doing a lot of typing.

I'm playing through the first game right now.  Is there any way I can leave extra equipment on planets?  I'm looking for the life of me because i would love to free up some space but I can't find anywhere that will let me do this.  Was this just an improvement for SR2?

Has anyone gotten that FPS shooter for the PSP?  I can't remember the name of it.  Is it out in North America?  I saw some demos here for it in Japan.  I didn't get a chance to play it but the graphics totally "pwn" Metroid Prime.

I've heard lots of rumors of Microsoft dropping the price of the 360 when Sony launches their PS3 but how about the other way around?  Will Sony launch a pre-emptive strike in November?  I'm hoping they do because I want to pick up a second PS2 and I don't want to buy one now only to have the price drop in 2 months.

I'm sure they will dub it but the DVD will come with the original speech so what's the problem?

Dont worry, I'll watch it here in Japan on Sept 14th and give you a review. lol

I checked out the movies on their site.  Is the RTS combat as fast as it looks in the movie?  It seems a little bit too crazy for my liking.

All .000000036 of that interest you'll be getting on $25 for 3 months?

I'll forego the interest and know that my stuff will be all packed up and waiting for me whenever I get out of work and swing by EB.

Just easier for me.


Where's the fun in that? Tongue

At Walmart they let my friend open and start up the PSP's until he got one that didn't have any dead pixels lol.

Uhh guys it's called Walmart.   I don't undestand why any of you preorder anyways.  Do you honestly think millions of people are going to be lining up to buy a $400 console?  When the PSP came out the EB's were all short of stock and Walmart had literally boxes and boxes of them!  No line up or anything.  Keep your $25 in the bank earning interest.

Not sure if any of you peruse this site.  This guy strikes me as a moron and not just because of his picture.  Square forming an unholy alliance with Microsoft?  Outpourings of cell-shaded Zelda's on the Revolution?  Some people really ought to stick to their computer gaming.

5357  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 Pre-Release Thread on: August 19, 2005, 12:03:30 AM
What do you think the breakdown will be of people who buy the full version vs. people who buy the gimped version?  I just pulled 85% out of my butt, I have no idea.  I'm sure there's not a soul here who would buy the gimped version but at the same time I can't help but think of all those mothers who are out buying new consoles for their kids.  They probably have no idea what the difference is between the consoles and more than likely they can only afford to buy one console in the first place.  If you were in the same situation wouldn't you buy the one that costs $100 dollars less?  That way when your son opens up his Christmas presents he could get a console AND a game.

I get a feeling that casual gamers/poor people probably make up a good 85% of the demographic  So things aren't looking good in my opinion.  Isn't it also true that backwards compatible games will only work with the full version of 360? If that's the case and emulating games for the 360 is a difficult and expensive process then how many game companies are going to put any effort into it when most people can't even play them?
5358  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 Pre-Release Thread on: August 18, 2005, 03:12:35 PM
Quote from: "Nick Bean"
Game companies are sick of losing money on their consoles. I can't understand how any one can knock Microsoft for the $399 price. They aren't short changing anyone, they are just trying to give people more options by offering the $299 version.

If Sony releases the PS3 for less than $400 I will be shocked. Not only that, but just think about how much money they can potentially lose if they price the PS3 at $400. There is the system, the built in wireless adapter, the Hi-Def dvd, and I have heard that they are also considering an optional hard drive. I wouldn't be mad at Sony if the PS3 started at $600 dollars with all the crap they are putting in it.

Then there is Nintendo, and I wouldn't be suprised at all if the Revolution was only (ha only) $200. Yet they have catches too, charging to download all the games for one, and the other is that for that price, their machine just won't be able to do what the other two can. I know that it is all about the "game play", but if they don't improve the tech, they can't improve the gameplay.

People might not understand or like what Microsoft has done, but they have just opened gamers eyes to the $400 console price tag. It's kind of funny, because they totally took the burden off of Sony.


Errm I think I've yet to read a post where someone is complaining about the $400 pricetag.  People are complaining about the 2 SKU versions.  It's bad news for everybody.  I agree with the person who stated that the harddriveless consoles won't be gimped.  You know why?  Because developers will be focusing on the 85% majority of gimped Xbox owners (my guess)  for there games.  So it is actually the superior HD that is going to have it's games gimped-they won't be nearly as cool as they could have been.
