5321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Firmware 2.71 now cracked... on: September 02, 2006, 04:47:48 PM
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 ><
5322  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.

You should be playing with the Japanese version anyways that way you can unlock the cute schoolgirl uniform smile

Bah the game is completely unrealistic.  I just checked out the official trailer and it features a russian making not one but several legal bodychecks!  icon_biggrin

Well my Japanese is pretty below par but if someone has something or does something that you want you can say "ii na"  (eee nah)

ie.

Person A: Look, look! I just bought a Nintendo DS!

Person B: Ii na!!!!!!!

Wait to say that until after she lowers the DS. icon_wink

LOL fair enough, especially considering the dental hygene of a lot of the Japanese eek

This is without the DS and DS in action.

5329  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Straightforward DS lite question on: August 14, 2006, 01:44:11 AM
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!! ><

Thanks
5330  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Straightforward DS lite question on: August 13, 2006, 03:57:41 PM
How in the heck do I change the brightness on this stupid thing??  It doesn't seem to be anywhere in the settings.
5331  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 - Key on: August 11, 2006, 03:10:24 AM
Mine was on the instruction manual.  You can use a CD key generator if you want but unless you're only planning on playing the singleplayer portion I don't think it will work very well.
5332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Should i give up on rts games? on: August 10, 2006, 02:47:07 PM
Grab Close Combat 5.  There's no micromanaging-it's all tactics.  I'm getting back into it now and I'm looking for people to play.
5333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Want to play EA's 2K5 games online? Too damn bad. on: August 07, 2006, 03:29:41 PM
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.
5334  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shadow Hearts Covenant: Do i need to play the first game? on: August 01, 2006, 03:42:54 AM
Dammit I'm in Japan frown
I should have bought the first one as well when I was in Canada.  I suppose I could give Dragon Quest another go.  I got killed in the first dungeon and lost interest.
5335  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shadow Hearts Covenant: Do i need to play the first game? on: August 01, 2006, 03:19:17 AM
I was thinking about giving SHC a go but I've never played the first game.  I was reading the review on IGN and they said it's fairly directly connected to the first game.  Am I going to be missing out on some serious story elements here?  Or will I still have an enjoyable time without knowing the backstory?
5336  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rediscovering Final Fantasy Tactics on: July 31, 2006, 12:45:30 PM
I think this game has one of the more shocking endings of all time.  I loved the whole game-the story was a bit convoluted but over all it was fantastic.  I don't think i would like Disgaea as much because it seems like so much more of a leveling game. I don't want to have to level my guys up to 999 or whatever.  I'm really looking forward to Jeanne D'Arc because it reminds me so much of FFT.
5337  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS3] Entitlements? WTF? on: July 30, 2006, 12:00:38 PM
Entitlements? Achievements?  I dunno I think the whole thing's stupid.
Besides didn't Sony come up with the whole 'Greatest Hits' thing??  And what does Xbox have now? Basically the exact same thing with a cheesey different name.  Let the companies copy each other-good ideas are good ideas (even if you happen to think they're stupid ideas)

Oh well.  Next time I'll give an overview of facetious comments.  Please read over it carefully because both of mine have gone completely over your head.

Granted I will give you the puzzle category.  For strategy I made a mistake-AOM actually is Age of Empires- Age of Mpires get it? smile  Little brain fart there. But adding the entire RPG library of the GBA is a little bit much.  We're comparing the DS and the PSP here.  For strategy RPG I'll grant you the upcoming game because I did it myself, but a rumored game?  That's pushing it! smile

5342  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox Japan commercial - somebody has to stop this. on: July 29, 2006, 11:17:44 AM
I think it's funny that an American thinks he knows how to sell Xbox's in Japan.  Of course he thinks the commercial is retarded-he's an American!!  Why would anybody by a shoe just because it has Michael Jackson's signature on it??  If he knew anything about Japan then he would know that Japan is idol crazy and SMAP is basically the HUGEST of huge in Japan.  So if they're whoring for Microsoft and they can't get Japanese to buy Xbox's then nobody can.  Fortunately we would never do something so ridiculous like that, such as using Cindy Crawford to get us to buy Pepsi.

I think that qualifies you as a troll then  :roll:
I'm on board with Devil here.  The DS is a great system-if you're an 11 year old kid.  I own both which allows me to voice that opinion.  However I play neither, which validates your ignoring me.

Very rarely do I ever see a DS game that I would be interested in.  Although that FF remake with the cool graphics will definitely be tempting to buy.  Although Jeanne D'Arc looks like a kickass sequel to Final Fantasy Tactics and I will probably pick up that one too.  If only Sega came out with a decent NHL2k game for the PSP then I would be all over it.

An unabashed copy of Panzer General but who cares! Hopefully it will be  great so I can play a wargame without having watch brats talking who are somehow generals.  Plus it will have a decent (read:realistic) backstory.

1. the geeks at E3 are what would be the early adopters, and the ones who would pre-order. they are the initial evangelists. A bad rep with them will harm their sales.


Again, I disagree.  What us geeks think, say, do, etc. does not mean jack shit.   No one gives a rats ass what we think. The few lost sales form negative geek feedback is a drop in the ocean of the consumer market that Sony is marketing to.


Untrue - where do you think people go for reviews first now?  Who's writing the early reviews?  If the buzz on teh internet is that the PS3 is an overrated overpriced hunk of developmental technology with bad games, do you really think that won't get out to the mainstream?  Dan Rather might be able to tell you a little about the power of negative internet feedback.


I would guess that most people who go to reviews ARE the geeks.  So geeks writing for geeks.  Most people (at least the ones I see in Walmart)  pick up the game and look at the cool picture on the front.

As someone who owns one I can tell you that it really isn't that big of a deal.  In fact I gave mine away to my girlfriend.  If it's your first DS then ok that's fine.  But if you are excited about getting an upgrade then you are officially a geek smile
