I always wanted to see an action-y Fallout MMORPG. Thought it'd make a great persistent game world.

I enjoyed the hell out of the movie (movies?), and think it's a shame that it's doing so poorly in the theatres. But that's definitely the wrong movie to open on the Easter long weekend. They held it back for a while, I almost wonder if it would have been worth stalling until May/June to give it a more appropriate summer release.

Any Canadians out there know if Sony/Nintendo/Microsoft dropped the price of consoles as the Canadian dollar climbed against the USD, without it being paired with an American price drop?

Somehow I doubt if the price change goes both ways.

So there is nothing to do in the world except fight the boss?  That kind of takes the fun out of exploration.

I would not compare it to Zelda. At all. The game is a twisted platformer/puzzler, where the platforms and the puzzles are big freaking monsters. These aren't boss fights in the traditional sense. Seriously, they're more like mobile levels. There's no dungeons. No items. No overworld. It's just one, big, expansive landscape dotted with a variety of giants to take down.

For anyone on the fence about the game, I'd say rent it. Get three, four Colossi in, and by then you'll know if you enjoy the game or not and choose to keep playing or send it back. Either way, it'd be cheaper to rent the game for two weekends and beat it than to buy the game (I think?), so it's win-win.

I still love the game, but then I never had problems with the camera or the controls. I only glaring flaw, for me, was the erratic frame rates due to the PS2's hardware, but even then it wasn't a deal breaker.

I had no expectations going into the game. And the game that was presented - which does have more variety than I think ATB will give it credit for - worked for me. I enjoyed the gameplay that was offered, a lot. It entertained me. I wanted to play more. And in the end, I had a great time playing it.

ATB's not the only one who hated it, and I'm not the only one who loved it.

Quote from: Kevin Grey on January 20, 2007, 06:21:31 AM

Are you a slow gamer (ie take longer than average to finish)?  The reason I ask is that a lot of the games you listed aren't very long at all- God of War, SotC, MGS 1&2 (3 is considerably longer), Psychonauts are approximately 10 hour games give or take a couple of hours for most people. 

I'd say I'm pretty average, but I think it's games like Okami, Zelda (70 hours for Twilight Princess?? Holy shit!), RE4, Phoenix Wright (longer than I expected), and GTA that soak up the time.

I'm just not a sports gamer, or an multi-player FPS gamer, or an MMO gamer, where you can sit down for half an hour, get your fix, and do something else. I like to get into it, I like to have a good chunk of time set aside to immerse myself. Not an escapism thing so much as I find the gaming disjointed otherwise. I want a feature film-like block of time.

And by the way, I don't mean to piss and moan or anything. Life's good. I think it's more that if I really get into a game - those mini-obsessions where you want to haul ass home to play it again - I won't be able to tackle it most days. Just the weekend, really. Which is kind of cool, in its own right. That's my gaming time. That's my hobby time. Could be worse.

But I also just got a brand new job, and I wonder what the bus trip would be like. To and from work where I don't have to drive could mean a lot of DS lovin' ...
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I don't think I can keep playing video games on: January 20, 2007, 05:36:21 AM
Hmm, I guess I hit a nerve, he he. More responses than I would have figured ...

I guess my only "problem" with being able to game is that I mostly enjoy games like Okami, Zelda, Shadows of the Colossus, God of War, GTA - long games. (Heaven help me if I really loved RPGs.) Brief, pick up and go gaming isn't what draws me in. I could find an hour here, an hour there to play a game, but I find that most of the stuff that I want to play really needs a few hours all at once to get into. And that's hard to do, regularly. Can't do it much during the week. Which kind of turns me into a weekend gamer, as far as my schedule goes. And that's not a bad thing, it's just a reflection of my changing lifestyle as I grow up and have to make choices of how I want to lead a balanced, healthy, successful life.

Believe you me, I wish I had more time. And on the flip side, thankfully I'm not addicted to gaming. The big difference between a movie and Okami, as an example, is that a movie is self contained. Sit down one night, watch is for two hours, and you're done. Okami, meanwhile, is something that you have to, hell, maintain in a sense, to keep up with not only the story but the gameplay mechanics. And the momentum as well. You have to keep the gaming nights up.

It's a strange form of entertainment, because it relies on skill. It's beyond simply entertaining. I'm laughing right now, because it really is an activity that you have to keep up if you want to succeed in. And that's great, it's such an interesting form of downtime, but you have to admit that many games aren't the type that you can set aside and pick up a few weeks, or even months, down the road without having to re-learn and remember just what the hell you were doing. I'm not a Live gamer, is what it comes down to.

Which is the real problem. So many games, so little time. I mean, if I was up for it, I'd want to pick up Bully, then MGS 1/2/3, then Psychonauts, then GTA: SA, then God of War II .... all lengthy, engaging video games. And they're released faster than I can play 'em.

Am I giving up video games fully? No. Never. I've been raised on video games. They're part of the culture I live in. I just won't be able to play the way I used to, the way I wish I could. But, what keeps me occupied, the rest of my life that takes up my time, is still so awesome that I really can't complain. And it means that the games I get around to playing will likely be the cream of the crop, which ain't bad either.

14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I don't think I can keep playing video games on: January 19, 2007, 04:57:19 AM
I'm sort of coming to the sad(?) realization that I don't think I really have the time to keep playing video games anymore (other than picking up a DS for a brief pre-sleep or on-the-can session). My life has really just hit the "professional" stage, and after dinner, getting a little exercise, getting some other work done at home, and having a real life outside of my own pad ... I don't know how I'm supposed to game. And thankfully I'm not married, no kids, (unfortunately) not seriously involved with anyone, so my life is "simple".

And it's strange - I love video games, want to keep playing, but a part of me fully recognizes that it's time to give them up. But I don't want to. I'm totally digging the awesomeness that is Okami right now, but unless I want to have it on the burner for a month or two, I'd basically have to play it every spare minute. And that's one game out of dozens that I want to play.

You can't watch every show you want to. Can't go see every concert. Can't read every book, see every movie ... why am I surprised that video games aren't any different? I guess I don't have any choice but to downgrade a little, accept my fate as a weekend gamer. (Life's tough, huh?  Roll Eyes )

Am I alone on this one? How the hell do the rest of you manage to play so much? (Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, I don't know.)

Big friggen deal, its not like he pulled out his cock and tried to screw them.. Sheesh, people need to grow some skin.

There is no way this should ever be considered a "Felony"..  Why dont they just start arresting people for LOOKING at the crotches? When will it end?  This whole overtly politcally correct panic stricken society is for the birds.

It is sad how pathetic people are becoming these days. 

Do you have any kids? How do you think you'd feel if you found out some dude was filming your young teenage daughters during, say, a ballet performance, zooming in on their groins and chests, and beating off to the footage later on? That's the essence of being a peeping tom and an invasion of privacy.

But what are we disagreeing on here, the crime, or the punishment?

Yes, I have kids.. 3 in fact, and I wouldn't give a fuck, how about that?  Its not like they are in a private changing room being filmed.  They are in public, and as such, someone has the right to film them, and I support that right, and the freedom of it.

If it takes the video home and jacks off to it, well, thats his personal thing, none of my business.

Well then that's where we definitely disagree ... because if I was ever out with my family (and this is a hypothetical, in the future family, if that makes a difference), and I found out some guy was filming my teenage daughter, zooming in on the parts he found most attractive so that he could capture these moments to watch them later for his own pleasure, I'd beat the living shit out of him. I am not a violent person, but if I suspected some asshole had been taping my daughter, I'd storm over and make him show me what he'd been taping.


Can someone drudge up the current laws on taking photographs and videos of people in public without their knowledge? I know that there were recent laws, or attempted laws, to counteract this kind of stuff, especially with the increase in celebrity rags and websites.

It's either an Alpine CDM-9823 or CDM-9821 - the manual's for both, apparently. I'd laugh if one does support the necessary connections, and one doesn't.

Now, I'm not super adept at car stereos - hell, stereos in general - but the manual does make mention of AUX modes for TV/video sound. However, on the installation and connections diagrams, it doesn't show anything for imputs, only output.

So what's the call?

I believe both of those decks use Versalink, which is basically an Alpine proprietary cable that will allow you an auxiliary in.  In reality, it means you'll need two cables: 1 Versalink to RCA, and 2 RCA to mini din.  I'm pretty sure that's the case, but it may be worth calling Crutchfield to see what they think.

18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Majora's Mask Discussion on: January 15, 2007, 09:35:00 AM
I loved Majora's Mask. And I always seem to say it whenever one of these threads pop up, but I'll say it again: you can save the game at any time and come back to the game where you left off. You just have to save at one of the owls. It's not a big deal. Half-way through something? Save at one of the owls and stop the game. Then come back to it when you're ready to. Just make sure to either save at one of the owls again, or reverse time, after you finish what you meant to do - dungeon, mask side-qest, general exploring, whatever.

It's a bit of a pain in the ass, but the save system works. Personally, I just wish that the game would have let you save at any point permanently. Keep the three day gameplay mechanic, but let me save at any point during those three days so that I can come back to the game and not have to worry about accidentally forgetting to save at one of the statues.

It's a sweet game, though. And I always feel so sorry for that "tree child" when I think about it, even though I've forgotten the details.

Huh, so the FM route sucks balls. Go figure. Now, I do not have a tape deck, and I only have a single disk CD deck, and I don't have any RCA imput jacks on the front of the deck ..... so how would I check to see if I could still use the deck to connect directly to the ipod? Could there be connections on the back of the deck that I could somehow access if I had someone from a car shop work on it? I think I actually have the manual for the deck kicking around - if I flipped through it, what should I look for?

I didn't read anything on this thread before viewing the clip, and the moment the news anchor stated what the contest was, I automatically thought it was a stupid and potentially dangerous contest. I mean, without even knowing that too much water can kill, it still sounds harmful to hold back from peeing for a week?? That's just dumb!

The radio station should have done some homework on just what would/could happen to a person if they undertook such a contest, if only to cover their own ass so that they could tell contestants that there were possible dangers. I mean, shit, people do do stupid and dangerous things for contests, but generally they're aware of the dangers.

But ... that does bring one question to mind: how responsible, then, are the contestants for looking into - or not looking into - the effects of such a physical trial? Does the responsibility lie with them, soley with them, to know what would happen?

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20070111/D8MJB2S81.html


Did you actually read the article?

Yes, and I used to wrestle, and NOT filming "Genital" areas during a match would be *VERY* odd, because frankly, your crotch gets thrown around in every contorted manner possible.  Besides, it isn't like they can prove he was going to use the film for masturbating or something.   I chock this one up as another retarded law by a paranoid population.



It's not that the guy accidentally captured a genital area or two, it's that he was zooming in at the (can't believe they actually used the word in the article) crotches of these young girls. That's intentional, and it's sick. How do you justify that, realistically? What, did he figure one girls crotch was going to put the other's in a full nelson? He's a pervert.

27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dare to replace "next gen"? on: December 14, 2006, 06:20:28 AM
I dislike the term "next gen". I think it's generic, lazily thought out, and, unless stopped, will be used for every successive console release until the end of time. So I thought to myself, "well, why the hell not just come up with a better term for next gen? Surely it can be done. Can't it?" And then I thought it'd be interesting if we came up with a better phrase that actually caught on. How cool would that be? Come up with some reasonably more intelligent/creative/modern expression, then pimp the hell out of it on the GT site, use it whenever you're talking about the consoles elsewhere on the net, and see if it catches on. And more importantly, cathes on without being mocked to death, a la the Star Wars Kid.

I'm half joking, and half serious. I can't tell if it's just the stupidest, lamest idea ever ... or a potentially strange claim to fame for GT.


And on that note ....... does anyone else know how many "generations" there were before the NES? That's my own personal console benchmark, my marker stone on the video game timeline, and I'm curious to know how many groups of consoles - Atari, Colleco, etc. - there were beofre it. Because now, the current "next gen" consoles are all tied to Nintendo's fifth generation. So what would that make this one, overall? Gen 7? Gen 8?

Since the 360 came out last year in 2005, you can't really call this G06 or anything like that. And since the Wii doesn't have HD support (idiots), you can't call it the HDGen. Can't tie it to wireless control, or internet support. Any other features that could be singled out?

Ha, what about the "Brick Generation"? That fitting enough?

I laughed my ass off. I love Kevin Smith's characters, and this movie fit right in with the other Jersey movies he's done. Really enjoyed it.

If, however, I were to complain about one thing, it's that the tone of the movie seemed to flip-flop a lot. I thought the gross-out humour was great - Smith is a funny, sick little man - and the character moments were great too ... but they felt strange being in the same flick. Truthfully, I wish Clerks II had been closer to Chasing Amy in execution, where you can still have a dirty mind and naughty jokes, but have them secondary to the actual story, characters, themes, etc. Chasing Amy is his best movie, in my oppinion, because the jokes don't take you out of the "reality" of the movie, while many of the gags - bachelor party!!!! - completely kill any suspension of disbelief.

I'd still recommend the movie though.

Quote from: Lockdown on December 03, 2006, 06:03:16 AM

I never thought about him trying to come back and stop things before (and failing) though.  I looked at it more like, once the cop said his fingerprints were all over her house, and seeing the little letters on the fridge, it was obvious to me his little "trip" in the machine was going to be a success. 

The trip back a success? Yes. But by that point there had already been the explosion, so he'd failed in stopping the attack. Which means if that was an intentional setup, then he must have come back at least once, but failed to stop the bomb going off.

Or it's a HUGE fuck up in the logic and the writing of the movie. Which is possible.

But the way I see it, there's really no way to know how many times he'd gone back. In fact, each time he could have gotten just a little further to stopping the terrorist/patriot, because he'd learned from what had already happened, and the sequence we watched was one that prevented the explosion from happening.

But walking out of the theatre, I wondered if the female lead (still can't remember her name) would try to take it to the final step by preventing the event and saving Denzel's characters life.

I hate not knowing if the writers were actually quite clever, or really sloppy.


And Primer was better.
31  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / I wanna talk about DEJA VU [SPOILERS!] on: December 03, 2006, 02:02:40 AM
Saw the flick last night, wish I'd seen it with someone who really wanted to get into the nitty gritty of the movie. Anyone else seen it? 'Cause I want to just fire off some thoughts ... and I'd stay well away if you haven't seen it.

So, right from the get go, did Denzel walk past the dead-and-bagged body of a future self? The bodybag with the ringing cell phone that he mistook for his own? Was that him? Actually, the moment he went for his phone and realized it was one of the dead bodies, I instantly assumed it was him (kinda knowing it was a time travel movie). Then I forgot about it, slowly thinking it wasn't really a time TRAVEL movie, then I rememberd again.

I missed the very beginning of the movie - was there anything on the news about a strange power outage to suggest that there'd been a time jump before? Like what happened when we saw him actually go back?

Do y'all figure that his character had already tried to come back and stop things, but had failed? There's the ambulance, the bloody gauze, the fingerprints already, which would hint that, yeah, he's popped back already ... and yet he didn't succeed.

Anyone else notice the strange stages of the "love" story? Denzel basically starts falling in love with the female victim when he winds up at the coroners, continues to fall in love with her as he watches her in the past, and is already in love with her when they actually meet. Then she falls for him as he saves her, and by the time she meets a past version of him, then she has already fallen for him as they unite once again. Just found that well done.

I fucking loved the car chase scene. Seriously, the more I think of it, the more I like it.

If he'd already tried to go back - and failed - anyone catch what he would have done differently this time? He was definitely at the girl's place before, so was there any indication that he picked up on this and changed his mind about something?


I tells ya, I gots to find another movie lover, 'cause this is just killing me ...

I actually wanted to pick up Twin Snakes, but it's hella difficult to find anywhere. A little Ebay action seems to be the only way to purchase a copy. (Or I could rent it, if a copy's available.)

I've always wanted to try out the Metal Gear Solid series - one of the best on the PS/PS2, goes the rumour - but I gave Sons of Liberty a shot a while back and wasn't really able to get into it. I really didn't know what the hell I was doing, and since the game is so cut scene heavy, I wasn't given a lot of time to try to figure the game out before I got bored of it. I'm not against cut scenes by any means, but I also want to play a game.

Still, a part of mel wants to play the games, and enjoy them.

MGS3: Subsistance is relatively cheap (and/or rentable), and I was just kinda wondering if it would be unwise to play it first. I understand that it's a prequel, but would I be doing myself a disservice by playing the third game in the series first? Will I get it? Or shoud I really try to drudge up a copy of MGS1 for the PS and play it on my PS2?

Sadly, I'm a fan of that spoof.

No Wii for me until the LAN orWiFi adapter and Component cables are available at the store I buy it at.

Someone know if the DS-aimed dongle (tee hee, dongle) would work for the Wii as well?
