Who in God's name would be retarded enough to buy either of those bundles??  Are those real??  Who in the heck is selling that?  Didn't anybody learn anything from the 3DO?

Holy crap I just realized that Sept 14th is only a little over 2 weeks away!!! In two weeks I'm going to be watching Advent Children!!  It seemed to me that it wasn't coming out for months still.
5403  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF VII: Advent Children Delayed in US on: August 25, 2005, 01:49:43 PM
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.

Keep your $25 in the bank earning interest.


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.

Actually in terms of the layout I prefer IGN to Gamespot.  It's so much easier to browse reviews and such.  I used to be a huge believer in IGN (ie. 7 years ago) but I take everything they say with a block of salt nowadays.

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.

I'll ask him about it
5413  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?

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.

Out of curiousity, what was Dragonquest have that FF doesn't?  I know that DQ>FF here in Japan but as I've never played a game I can't tell why.  Judging from the trailer the graphics seem pretty meh and the story failed to interest me whatsoever.  So what is it that makes it so popular exactly?

Quote from: "Amalzain"


And Canuck, I'm curious why you couldn't bring yourself to play the game again.  I know why I won't (besides the whole 'not owning it anymore' thing), but was it just that long stretch without saves that kept you from trying it again?  Or perhaps the worry that it would crash at the same place if you did it again?  I haven't played Prince of Persia yet to compare, though it is in my backlog.


Meh it's a fairly long haul from the last save point to the end with lots of annoying jumping and then you have to beat the end boss on top of that (which was extremely cool I must admit.)  I just couldn't be bothered.  I technically beat it anyways although it would be cool to see the ending because I was developing an emotional attachment to that girl I was saving smile
5420  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New FF VII game? on: August 04, 2005, 04:06:17 PM
Ooops I see that this maybe isnt news.  Gamespot has some info on it.  It's called FFVII: Dirge of Cerebrus.
5421  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New FF VII game? on: August 04, 2005, 04:02:29 PM
Is there a new FF7 game in the works?  I thought there wasn't but I was just perusing a game magazine today (in Japan) and right there in the previews section there was a spread for a game called FFVII and then a sub-title underneath it.  The only part of the spread that I recognized was the part that said FFVII lol.  Tomorrow I will try to take a pic of it (unless of course this is old news which it surely must be in the internet age.)
5422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 Info from PSM on: August 03, 2005, 02:56:34 AM
I've never managed to fill my PS2 memory card.  If they can cut $100 off the price of a PS3 by not including a HD then I'm all for it.
5423  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I almost wound up hating Ico (Spoilers) on: August 03, 2005, 02:36:04 AM
You're both heathens Tongue
The game is amazing.  Yes there is a bit of a long stretch near the end where you can't save.  In fact I never saw the ending of the game because I finally made it through and then the game crashed when I beat the final boss.  I couldn't bring myself to play it again.  In my opinion it's better than Prince of Persia.
5424  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many PC games do you have installed? on: July 16, 2005, 10:49:30 AM
Silent Hunter 3 and Pro Evolution 4.

PE4 I just installed today so before that I only had one smile

This is a new computer though so that's partly the reason.  But at the same time I try to keep the fewest number of games on my comp as possible.  Don't you find that the more games you have the less time you actually  spend playing them?  It takes so much effort to have so much choice so in the end you end up playng nothing and watching a movie instead.

I'm a pretty big PS2 fanboy but from what you've described I would probably recommend you to head the way of the Xbox.  I'm still not a big fan of the controller but if you want to play sports/racing games then the Xbox is what you should get.  There isnt much reason for a sports gamer to get a PS2 anymore, now that Winning Eleven is now on the Xbox.

5428  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A watershed moment for PC Gamers on: May 19, 2005, 01:49:29 PM
Hopefully with all these USB ports we'll get the option to finally use a mouse or keyboard.  I would love it if the PS3 came with some kind of simple webbrowser interface.  I love the fact that I don't have to upgrade and I love the fact that as the years go on console games keep getting better and better looking even though you're still using the exact same hardware.  That NEVER happens with the PC.  If you want your games to get better looking with the PC then you have to upgrade.
Honestly if I could just use my console to browse the web then my last computer would be my last computer.

5430  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So where do you stand right now? on: May 17, 2005, 05:32:23 AM
PS3 all the way.  It will have my RPG's, SRPG's and all sorts of kooky games that will never see the light of day on XBOX 360.  If I want to play KOTOR 3 then I'll fire up my computer.
5431  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Playstation 3 on: May 17, 2005, 05:24:56 AM
So far I'm impressed.  Don't knock the controller yet.  All we can see are pictures of it from the same angle.  I still feel that the PS2 has the best controller of the bunch and I have faith that they wouldn't screw this up.  It looks very similar to a Logitech controller that I've seen before.  I've never actually tried it before but I always hear how amazing Logitech controllers are.  The only thing that concerns me is that the Triangle and Circle buttons appean to be slanted away on the top half and I'm wondering if it might be a little more awkward to use them.
5432  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pic of Xbox 360 on: May 11, 2005, 08:48:56 AM
I don't think the colour of the console really matters that much.  Look at the Playstation-it was white and it killed.  I've heard the same thing about black but look at the PS2.  Hmm I guess the moral of the story is that they could release the PS2 in rainbow colour and people would still buy it lol.

Ahh ok that's not so bad then smile  But if you read on in my post Rob you'll see that I base my decisions not on size but on games which is why I don't own an Xbox and probably won't own a 360 unless they somehow manage to get a lot of Japanese developers on board which they better do or else nobody in Japan will buy one.

I'm actually living in Tokyo right now and the Xbox sections in all the videogame stores are absolutely miniscule or even non existent.

My god that thing is ginormous.  It's almost as big as the old XBOX!  I thought they learned that no one wants a big hulking dinosaur of a console system.  I will PROBABLY stick with Sony.  Right now they have almost all the games that the XBOX does and a lot that it doesnt.  So unless the Xbox magically corners the japanese market I probably won't be purchasing one.

Hi guys I am a major lurker here but I just have to comment on this thread.  The one thing that really bothers me about Tomb Raider is how the whole movement is based on a grid system.  It makes moving and running and jumping such a dreadful chore.  I just checked out the movie and although I admit it looks like she has some cool new moves, it looks to me from a couple of shots that we actually got to see her running that she still controls like a tank.  If that's true then I'll probably pass this one up.
5436  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Day of Defeat - worth the $10 extra bucks? on: October 22, 2004, 01:51:26 AM
If you can't stand the idiots on the server then the answer is to find a good server.  The server I play on all the time is great.  Usually 3/4 of the players belong to the server's clan/guild and usually at least 4 or 5 people have admin powers.  If you screw around you get  1 warning and then you are gone.  Most of the people are over 20 anyways so it's quite mature.  I never play on any other server.

So what is the best WWII multiplayer?  Someone mentioned  Red Orchestra which I have not yet played.  Someone mentioned MOH multiplayer which I think is a steaming POS.  I've seen movies of COD multiplayer.  The animation is amazing but is the gameplay realistic like DOD?  I think the DoD team have practically honed this mod to perfection.
I like most people am a little upset over having to pay for what used to be a free mod  but I think once it comes out it will be THE best WWII multiiplay bar none.  There will be other free mods come out but they are going to be starting at square one and will have to go through all the growing pains that DOD did.
I'm absolutely positive that I will be able to get 10$ of play time out of DOD,  Heck, even if I only played it for a couple of hours that would still be cheaper than going to see a movie!
5437  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Problem with KOTOR installation. Please advise!!! on: October 18, 2004, 01:01:09 AM
I only have a 20 gig hd so it isnt that big a deal.  I was actually thinking of formating so that I could get another HD and then just have a clean install of windows xp on this one and everything else on the other.
Anyways i took your advice and found a solution.  Here it is for anyone else who has had similar problems.

From Dassassin's suggestion i decided to add a little tip to get by the reinstallation bug. Many people seem to have encountered this bug and through extensive tests and brainstorming a solution has been found!

Reinstallation Bug Fix:
1. Download a program called RegCleaner from www.majorgeeks.com

2. Run this and remove any traces of "KotOR", "LucasArts" and "BioWare".

3. Open up "My Computer" and select "Tools" at the top toolbar. Then select "Folder Options". After this go to the "View" Tab and select "Show hidden files and folders".

4. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Temp. Remove all files in this folder.

5. Now go to C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information. In here delete the folder with the following title: {2A9A40C7-6670-4D5F-8F41-D12E2E08B48B}.

This should fix the installation bug. Thanks to DerBruzzler for contacting Activision and finding out which folder to remove.
I hope this helps many of you out........

I just got KOTOR and while I was installing it, I ran out of HD space.  I cancelled the installation, deleted what was installed (since i wasnt able to do it from the add/remove programs) and then deleted some other crap to free up space and then defragged.  Now when i try to install i just get an error message.  Am i going to have to format my comp just to get rid of some hidden KOTOR files so that i can install it properly?
