5361  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The truck that would not die! on: February 01, 2006, 11:45:03 AM
Oh crap that was still part of the show???  I thought it had skipped on over into the next episode so I just stoped it there

Jon Romero is going to make you his online bitch.
5363  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Need some RTS mp strategy help on: January 31, 2006, 04:31:28 PM
Grab yourself a copy of Close Combat 5.  No rushing there.  Lots of tactics and strategy too.
5364  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Got a PSP, need game/firmware recommendation. on: January 30, 2006, 12:34:51 PM
Thanks for that Clay!!  I've been waiting for that for a month now!! Will the new version play ISO's or only emulators??  I can't wait to load my games (all two of them!) onto my memory card so I don't have to use the damned UMD's any more.  Hopefully that will add to the battery time.  Incidently I just checked out http://pspupdates.qj.net/ and you would not believe the stuff they have on there!  Apparently there is a Quake 1 and Quake 2 mod for the PSP as well as a Transport Tycoon!  That is amazing!

I suppose that I need to buy the GTA game before I can get the emulators to work?  I'm not really a big fan of GTA.
5365  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EPSXE Crash(FF9)-Warning Help Please? on: January 30, 2006, 01:57:24 AM
Ahh yes that's another thing.  I read that too-you need to be using the older version of ePSXe.
5366  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EPSXE Crash(FF9)-Warning Help Please? on: January 29, 2006, 11:50:12 PM
your best bet would be to check out the ePSXe forums.
5367  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Talk Strategy Game of the Year discussion on: January 27, 2006, 11:25:10 PM
Battlefield 2??  Brothers in Arms??  Those are strategy games in the loosest sense of the word I guess.  I was hoping to see a few more hardcore strategy games on there.

And a price tag of $170 bucks
Not too shabby.
5370  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy: Dirge of Cerberus is out in Japan... on: January 26, 2006, 12:39:03 PM
Why would anyone buy a rerelease of FFVII with no changes if they can just go pick up a copy of the Greatest Hits Playstation version at their local Walmart for $14 bucks?  Now if they rereleased FFVII with improved graphics then I would totally be IN!
5371  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy: Dirge of Cerberus is out in Japan... on: January 26, 2006, 01:12:39 AM
Where are you getting your info?  I'd like to read it.
5372  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Japanese Sales Charts on: January 25, 2006, 11:58:34 PM
Wow that's crazy.  So the xbox has sold 17,000 units of the 120,000 they were issued?  Talk about a flop oin Japan.  I remember conservative estimates were suggesting that they had a 40% selling rate  during the first few release days but here we are a month and a half later and that total isnt even close to 40%

So when does this issue hit the shelves?  March 5th or 6th?

If it's the March issue, wouldn't it hit in February?


January
5374  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Full Auto + Free Faceplate on: January 23, 2006, 03:15:54 AM
When I hear 'faceplate'  all I can picture is girls accessorizing their cell phones.  Not for me but whatever floats your boat.
5375  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ever wanted to love a game you absolutely hate? on: January 23, 2006, 03:11:48 AM
Quote from: "TheMissingLink"
^ Yeah, but you want to love them, don't you?  Ditto here, I wanted to find Makai Kingdom silly and I wanted to dive into the item world in Disgaea but MY GOD, I don't know what it is, but I think I'm just DONE with Nippon Ichi SRPGs unless they do something radically different.


Did you enjoy Final Fantasy Tactics?  Because I loved it and I like the look of these other games but I'm worried that it's more of a game for leveling whores than something with a fantastic story like FFT had.
5376  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Do you have a video game character crush? on: January 22, 2006, 09:43:43 AM
Tifa from Advent Children gets my vote.  She could clean my clock anyday! biggrin
5377  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Something I hate about Gamestop on: January 18, 2006, 02:32:51 PM
If you're buying new games then why don't you just go to Walmart instead?  I mean the selection is practically as good and the prices are cheaper.
5378  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth 2 coming for 360 on: January 16, 2006, 02:55:38 AM
Honestly I think the real problem for console RTS games in the past was not the lack of mouse support but rather the terrible resolution.    RTS is all about controlling  ridiculous numbers of tiny little units and in the past it just wasn't really feasible to do it on a normal tv.  But now with HD tv's it shouldnt be as much of a problem.  I think we'll see more RTS games out this generation (and if people by them, then the PS3 will probably support the mouse and keyboard for all games)
5379  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Animal Crossing on Ebay on: January 16, 2006, 02:52:04 AM
I've never played Animal Crossing so I have no idea what a bell is or what it's worth, but a million bells sounds like a lot!  How do they get a million bells?
5380  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Interesting Japanese sales data 12/26 - 01/01 on: January 15, 2006, 10:55:46 AM
By the way this may sound stupid but is that first chart only for one week?  That what it seems to say according to the date.  Did they really sell 390,000 DS's in one week?
5381  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Interesting Japanese sales data 12/26 - 01/01 on: January 15, 2006, 10:52:48 AM
Brain training games are all the rage here.  I've seen commercials for it.  It makes great use of the stylus.  Makes sense when you think how important education is for the kids.  Instead of buying them a game, buy them something that will help them get into that famous highschool.  My girlfriend thinks it's the greatest things.  Unfortunately not quite great enough to make her go out and buy one smile
5382  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 or the Real Thing? on: January 14, 2006, 12:37:21 AM
Those pictures are all taken in Shinjuku.  I've actually eaten in a restaurant across from that big Jumbo sign.  Really amazing seafood curry.

What's the problem? That seems like a huge list to me
5384  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox Live Arcade is about to get even better on: January 07, 2006, 10:37:10 AM
Interesting how we're using this super advanced technology to play old arcade games.  Great use of horsepower  :roll:
5385  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360]Hmm...external HD-DVD drive announced on: January 06, 2006, 03:32:09 AM
I read in the paper today that the Blue Ray player could cost as much as $1800 compared to $800-$400 for the HD-DVD player.  If that's the case then I'll definitely be picking up a PS3!.  It makes a $500 console seem like a bargain.
5386  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How was Doom 3 on the X-Box on: January 06, 2006, 03:24:23 AM
I think you'd be better off by going out and grabbing a copy of Halflife. Did it ever come out for the Xbox?  Or just the PS2?

Pretty darn sure this add-on will only be used for viewing movies.  I doubt MS will ever allow game media to be shipped on it.


This may be a stupid question, but why would MS never allow game media to be shipped on HD-DVD's??
5388  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Random encounter frustration on: January 03, 2006, 11:47:30 PM
I liked Chrono Chross because  I didn't have to fight random battles-I could actually see the monsters coming after me.

5390  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How many are staying up for the new year? on: January 01, 2006, 04:29:07 AM
I think a better question would be, who is on this forum posting on New Years Eve?? What does that say about you guys!  I'm in Japan and New Years is over.  That's my excuse biggrin
5391  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ATI says PS3 tragically unrefined on: January 01, 2006, 03:42:15 AM
Pfffffft!!  Who cares about ATI when you got the Emotion Engine?  Or was that the last kooky name for the PS2?  Is it the Cell thingy now?
5392  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / And then sometimes Penny Arcade is just stupid on: December 31, 2005, 02:37:23 AM
I didn't really get this series either but what the hell.  Everyone needs a vacation sometime.
5393  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Twin Snakes ['Cube] - no love!? on: December 26, 2005, 11:11:39 PM
The problem that I have with MG twin snakes is that for some reason it doesnt have Mei Ling in that version!  She was such a cutie! (I have a girlfriend, honest.)
5394  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 in Japan: The Kancho of MS Continues on: December 26, 2005, 01:24:45 PM
Quote from: "th'FOOL"
Oh Nos!  The Xbox360 hasn't even been out a month in japan and it's selling horribly!  It's DOOMED!!!!!!

Excuse me, but was anybody (including MS) really expecting a fast adoption of this console over there?  If it succeeds at all, it will be a very slow burn as Japanese devs start coming out with their offerings.  It will be a year or more before any measure of success or failure will mean shit.

But hey, please, carry on with the hand-wringing....


I keep saying that the games don't matter here but obviously nobody is listening.  When I ask people why they don't buy the xbox they don't say "because I don't like Xbox games" or "because it doesn't have enough Japanese games" they say "BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE XBOX."  These people will wait 3 years for the PS3 to come out if it takes that long and they'll pay 50,000 yen for it too (compared to Xbox's 31,000 yen)

So all the otaku (geeks) have bought the Xbox 360 on release day and that's just about it.  The PS3 will probably be out by 2007.  It will probably take a good 4 months for any decent Japanese games to start dribbling out.  Any self-respecting Japanese person will wait that extra 8 months and get themselves a PS3.

nice idea, wrong forum...


Well the main thing idea was what videogame stuff did you get.
5396  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What did you get for Christmas? on: December 26, 2005, 02:42:21 AM
Chocolate, some cologne, a Toronto Maple Leaf toque and a PSP (which I bought) which I'm about to try and return because it came with 2.50 drivers preinstalled.
5397  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 in Japan: The Kancho of MS Continues on: December 26, 2005, 02:39:03 AM
It doesn't matter what games it's going to get.  People are not going to buy it.  Trust me.  I live here.  I've been asking around.
"Are you going to get an Xbox?"

"No."

"Why not?"

"I don't like Xbox"


It has nothing to do with the games-it's just something that's ingrained into their souls
5398  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Stuck in Quake 4 already on: December 22, 2005, 03:31:52 PM
You gotta go into the next room, fight some baddies and then go up high and drop some sort of laser gun in front of the door which you can then used to blast open.  There was no secret-just go into the next room (opposite direction from the door you are trying to get into)

Canuck, you just reminded me what a lucky, lucky man you are, living in Japan. slywink


Are you talking about the Xbox's or the highschool girls in tiny skirts?

I suppose I could be considered lucky for either one biggrin
5400  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 anyone?? on: December 21, 2005, 11:54:02 PM


We've got tons available!! All you need to do is come to Japan and pick one up.  Considering the prices that they're going for on Ebay, it might not actually be such a bad deal when you throw in the cost of the plane ticket.
I was on the hunt for PSP's yesterday so I went into Ikebukero to the local BicCamera to check out some prices.  On the floor they had this little island of 360's and another tiny cart full of Xbox games and one more tiny section of Xboxes and games and controllers.  And they were all drawing as much interest as this display is.  In this particular store, there were thousands of Japanese people checking out PSP's, PS2's, Gamecubes and DS's (this is an hyperbole) and exactly no one checking out any of the 360 areas (this is not a hyperbole.)  I'm convinced that in Japan, the 360 will do no better than the Xbox did.  This is not Microsoft's fault (mostly,) Japanese people are just biased against any console systems that are not Japanese.
