2241  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I feel sorry for the PSP. on: November 15, 2006, 10:20:58 PM
I love the PSP, but there are several knocks against it:

1) There really should have been 2 analog sticks. Many good games suffer because controls are moved to the shoulder or face buttons.


2) Crippled movie ripping.  I'm still furious that I only get 2/3 of my screen real estate when ripping my own movie, unless I have 1.5 firmware, or I use the "zoom" function. Apparently this crippling feature was put in to maintain interest in buying actual UMD films. Well, that horse is now dead, so Sony should unlock full screen playback.

3) Sony made transferring movies to your PSP a royal pain in the ass. I should be able to just transfer my Divx and Xvid materials without REconverting them for the PSP.

4) Game prices. The average game is $5-10 more expensive than a DS title.

5) Movie prices. I'm certain that various studios had a hand in determining the MSRP for the UMD, but the street price should have been between $10-15 max. Even if other studios wouldn't follow suit, Sony should have released their extensive library at $10 per movie

6) Super-ultra high gloss screen. I've heard many people grumble about "seeing their own reflection" while playing a game on the PSP. At times it even irritates me, especially on games that have dark colored environments. 

7) Load times. This is not necessarily Sony's fault, as I've seen many games with superb graphics that have very tolerable load times. However, many developers have been sloppy when designing a game around Sony's optical media access time, and this has given the system bad buzz. For example, my friend calls his DS "the portable system I play while my PSP is loading."  Hyperbole to an extent, but the criticism is not unwarranted.


The PSP has a 20+ million install base, and it continues to sell at a healthy rate. The system is by no means a dog. I definitely foresee a PSP 2

Do they always need to be in a pond to initiate the romance, or was I just unlucky?

The DS/PSP battle proved that there's plenty of room for a system that bypasses the 'graphics are sexy' mindset entirely...

I think this is a misconception that won't hold up. People expect less out of portable devices than they do out of home products. MP3 players don't have the audio quality of a stereo, cell phones reception is of lower quality than land lines, etc.

There is no way the Wii will end up #2 worldwide in the long run. Nintendo lacks the third party support, the system will look increasingly archaic graphically, and they lack true HD support. Look through the list of upcoming releases by third parties and most say Xbox 360/PS3.

Nintendo will start out very strong due to the novelty factor, but they won't have the endurance to maintain momentum through the race.


Endgame:

PS3 by a wide margin for worldwide sales, much less so in North America
Xbox 360
Wii

How much time do compulsive buyers actually have logged into most of their games?

90% of my titles have less than 2 hours invested. I typically only play two games at once. Many of those games I have unopened are RPGs (Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2, Nocturne, Valkyrie Profile 2, Shadow Hearts, etc). A couple months ago I grabbed all of my games and documented the estimated play time. If I played eight hours a day, seven days a week, and didn't buy another game, it would take me about 14 months to complete the games I have. Considering that I own a DS, 360, PS2, PSP, Gamecube and Xbox, there are still tons of games coming out that I still want to purchase. Thus, I made a decision to:

1) Hold off on a Wii and PS3
2) Not buy a game until it hits a price point of $30 for RPGs and strategy titles, or $20 for FPS and standard action titles.
3) Limit myself to games I only consider *above average*. The days of  purchasing an average game because "it was only $10" are gone. My time is too precious to play anything average.
4) Hold off on buying games that I KNOW will have expansions until the eventual Gold or Platinum pack arrives. For example, I waited on both Dawn of War and SWAT 4 because I knew expansions were in the works.
2245  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata? on: November 14, 2006, 02:39:32 AM
If Viva Pinata had been a Nintendo game, I'll bet it would score 9 or higher at many reviews sites.

I have yet to take any one of them out of the box.


But it was 3 for 2  !!!!    paranoid

Been there, done that.  mad

Another down side:

Several of these games I purchased in the past I've finally managed to start playing. After spending a few hours with one, I realize I don't really enjoy the game. Now I've a got game that has practically no trade in value AND a I don't even like it.

I always wonder what people that buy a tremendous about of games at full price, do with the games?  My guess, a lot of popping the game in for 5 minutes and saying; "This ain't bad, I will come back to it later." type of action goes on - where they just keep building giant backlogs that never improve and stacking up games to collect dust. Or do they sell them to recover some cash?

Yup, Kobra. This was me until last year. I'd purchase the game, test the disc, and then store it away for play sometime in the near future. The result is that I now have over 100 games that I have not even really touched, thus wasting over a couple thousand dollars when factoring the current selling price of these games.

Here is an example of how I would screw myself:

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory retailed for $49.99. It would be on sale for $34.99 the launch week. I'd rationalize that I was SAVING myself $15. I'd buy it, test it, and store it on a shelf. It is still sitting there unplayed to this day. Now it can be purchased at Amazon for $9.00.

A new strategy card game is coming out for the PSP this week. I didn't even know this game existed, the company has a somewhat dubious track record, and there is almost no press on the title. But it -is- Warhammer. And card games -are- cool. Is anyone prepared to take a hit for the team, buy the game, and inform the rest of the us grunts in the trenches if we should buy this obscure title? I'm a sucker for card games, but I am broken and penniless.

According to the managers of my two local EB Games, this title is actually selling better much better than they expected. One store already burned through two different shipments of the game, and after Gears of War this is currently his fastest selling 360 title. It has even surpassed CoD3 for daily sales.  :icon_eek:

That is just...wrong. I wonder if this will actually be a minor hit for Rare and MS.

I've been trying to find a game that i could enjoy with my girlfriend, but so far I have been unsuccessful. Do any of you think this game has the possibility of luring a non-gaming female into playing? My GF has truly tried to play Table Tennis and Gears of War with me, but she is absolutely terrible at handling a controller. In GoW she spent most of our co-op play running into walls or shooting at the ground, and although she said she was enjoying herself, I know that she was frustrated.

I really have no love for these type of Animal Crossing or Harvest Moon-esque games, but I'd be willing to play if I could find something that she might enjoy. So, basically, is this a game for non-gamers?

It seems like every month some new hot game comes out (GRAW, Dead Rising, Saint's Row, Madden, Splinter Cell, etc) that is heralded as the killer app/system seller, everyone expects 360 sales to jump up for the month and yet despite the games selling really well, 360 sales stay remarkably consistent from month to month with nary an uptick.

I see your point. It will be interesting to see if Gears of War has any durability, especially since this is the first game that is supposed to be a true Killer App in the 360 stable. I still see it following the same trend you outlined, although with Christmas around the corner it will probably get a two month bump.

I personally find GoW to be a better game than Halo or Halo 2, but I don't think it will have even half the endurance of those two titles.
2252  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: October Hardware Sales on: November 11, 2006, 12:43:22 AM
Quote
And 360 continues it's trend of everybody buys what's hot the month it's out and immediately forgets about after that- Saints Row plummeted from 500k in sales in September to only 50k sales in October (Dead Rising saw a similar cliff-like drop from August to September despite Capcom heavily boosting advertising).

This isn't very surprising to me. The 360 user base is still relatively small, so selling 500,000+ units in one month probably saturates much of the market looking for many of these titles.

One slightly positive note for the 360 in Japan is that its sales are up almost 100% in the last 45 days. It is still a very small number, but at least they are headed in the right direction. The upcoming release of the Blue Dragon bundle for less than $250 should move some units. Also, worldwide sales should hit between 8-9 million by January 1st. That gives the 360 a healthy lead over the PS3, especially considering Sony's manufacturing slips. (current install base is estimated at 6.75 million units worldwide)
2253  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]Gears of War-Impressions on: November 09, 2006, 10:23:33 PM
I'm about half way through the game and I would rate it a solid 9. There is absolutely no doubt that this game raises the bar for next-gen graphic standards, but I still think the game falls short of a ten for the following reasons:

1) Disposable cast of characters- I have absolutely no emotional tie to any of my team members. In fact, I can't even remember all of their names. It would have been nice if there were a few more brief interludes where the developer tried to make a "Band of Brothers" feel to the game.

2) My pet peeve- My pet peeve about all of these tactical shooters (Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, GoW, etc) is that nobody on your team ever dies. I'd love to see a game that transported in new recruits as your current members die. Then at the end of the game they would show a tally of how many men died under your command, and you could also watch a "replay video" showing the moment each soldier gave up his life for the cause.

3) Spotty companion AI- Overall the other member of my team perform admirably, but more than once I've seen them rush a machine gun nest, run in front of my line of fire while I'm shooting, or not use cover improperly. More than once they have also saved my ass so I'll tread gently here.

4) Grenades- They are underpowered, and the explosive radius makes it very easy for the Locust to evade harm. The only consistent use for grenades is to close holes and flush Locusts out from cover. I really wish there were shrapnel grenades in the game.

5) Not enough opening backgound on the enemy- I'd like to say that the enemies in GoW are superior to those seen in Halo, but I can't be sure. I know almost nothing about the Locust. The game does a substandard job making the adversary a 3 dimensional enemy.


Highlights of the game:

1) Beautiful visuals with almost no slowdow- I commend Epic on a fantastic job of coding for the Xbox 360. Despite the graphical splendor and sheer amount of chaos on the screen, slowdown is practically nonexistent. I've played games with far less detail that had much greater drops in framerate than anything I've seen in GoW. There is no question that this title is refined. Epic understands Microsoft's hardware.

2) War cam- I love the war cam. It makes everything seem twice as visceral.

3) Gameplay details- I love the introduction of the "Y" button to make you automatically view important scenes and the mini-game that is part of reloading your weapon. These small details really added to the game. I'm going to miss that "Y" feature in future action titles.

4) Adjustable difficulty- Thank you Epic for allowing me to adjust the difficulty at any stage. My girlfriend was getting really aggrivated when trying to the play the game on hardcore, so dropping down to casual without having to start a new game was wonderful.

Just finished playing for about 90 minutes at my friend's place.

+ Graphics are amazing, although people with high-end computers will not be nearly as impressed as everyone else. To a degree, playing Doom 3, Quake 4 and FEAR on a high-end PC ruined the awe factor of the next-gen consoles for me.

+ Controls are fabulous

+ Environment is wonderfully moody and gothic


- A.I. of your team is can be very suspect. At times they will run straight into enemy fire, have a hard time hitting the broad side of a barn, and they will make poor use of the surrounding cover. Other times they react very well to the situation at hand. So far, it seems like they do a better job at lending suppression fire as opposed to actually making the kills. The AI seen in FEAR is definitely a step above GoW.

-Melee has a higher learning curve than I expected

-I would have liked a few female fighters to be on the ground with you, but apparently the opposite sex can't fire a gun to save humanity.


90 minutes in I'd rate it an 8.5

From 1up:

Quote
You can always find reasons not to give a game a review score of 10. Control issues (Gears of War has that). A.I. problems (that, too). Bad dialogue or story telling (yes on both). Linear levels, online lag, limited modes (yup, yup, and yup). But as I was playing through the game, I found one consistently good feature: It was constantly impressing the hell out of me.

I'm sorry, but any game with control issues, A.I. issues, poor dialogue, a cliched story and limited multiplayer modes does NOT deserve a 10.

Quote
Your partner, Dom, dies...A LOT...especially on the Hardcore difficulty setting. He is a constant liability, crying for you to revive him when enemies are all about, firing at the only other human that's standing around (which happens to be you). And on one late stage, Dom just flat-out refused to follow me into a train station packed with bad guys -- he got hung up in an alley and would not leave.

Quote
The story is ambitious (the underground-dwelling Locust burst through the Earth's crust to wipe out humanity), cliché-ridden, and you can tell how the story's going to end before you even reach it

Quote
My biggest complaint, however, is with the multiplayer options. What's there is a lot of fun, but that fun isn't going to last very long until downloadable content comes along...

Other games would have been hammered for these reasons. How is it that this title gets a pass? I'm sure the game is great, but a ten should have less major or minor missteps.

Is the book guidelines for playing, or is more like an encyclopedia with descriptions and stories?

I got a totally different perspective on the game. I found it to be completely mediocre. It gives you about the same quality of gameplay as Untold Legends, but it feels slightly less refined. The story is also a complete throw-away, although I suppose that is par for the course. The mere fact that no major review sites wrote about it should have been a huge warning flag in my book. Add in the fact that the average user rating is between a 4, 5, and spikes at 8, you get a rather bleak picture of a game that is clearly hit-and-miss.

I bought it because I was a Dungeon Siege whore, but this game just didn't fit the bill.

I know this is being nitpicky, but I absolutely hate the use of those damned smiley faces. It is completely contrary to the tone and mood of the game. I prefer my RPGs to have those beautiful portraits that preface the conversation capsules. If not that, then just put the name. But for the love of all that is holy, no smilies.  icon_evil

Splinter Cell 5 was announced at X06 as a 360 exclusive.

I heard about the announcement, but I still belive we'll see it on the PS3, even if it is a later release. For example, Enchanted Arms was supposed to be "only on Xbox", was published by MS in Japan, and now it is scheduled for Sony's machine. Splinter Cell just seems too important a title for Ubisoft to allow it to remain exclusive.

It would be wise of MS to lock it in as an answer to Metal Gear Solid. (Although I don't even know if it is possible for their releases to coincide.)

What really bothers me about the EB/Gamestop preorders is that they pass NO savings on to you. Not even a stinking 10%. You're preorder helps them reduce operating costs, but they refuse to share that savings with you. Do you realize how much money they get to use for a full year while you wait for Halo 3?

I rarely see a reason to preorder through EB or Gamestop. Even for niche titles it is just as easy to do it through GoGamer, Amazon, Play Asia, etc, and they actually give you a DISCOUNT for preorders. Or places like frys, Best Buy or Circuit City put the game on sale during the first day or week. You should see how pissed our local store was with the number of FF XII preorder cancellations due to the $38 Circuit City sale.

Man, I hope not.  I also think it's a mistake.  It's not even guaranteed that Blue Dragon will be a titan here to begin with- it's obviously a take on Dragon Quest and that series just doesn't have much sway over here right now.  A Sakaguchi/Toriyama team up means a lot in Japan, but those names are largely lost on most American RPG fans. I think they'd do better here to get their RPGs out in a timely and regular fashion.  RPGs are always sparse early in a console's life and getting some significant RPGs out before PS3 RPGs hit would probably help them a lot.  It's very possible that we might start seeing a few PS3 RPGs by next holiday season, but certainly not before then.


I agree that putting RPGs out in a consistent fashion would be the best strategy. However maybe they ARE staggering them in this fashion. After all, you have Mass Effect before summer. That would give RPG fans enough time to digest that title before Blue Dragon hit. (Even though I believe the audiences for JRPGs and WRPGs are not the exactly the same.)

Even if Sony has no strong RPGs for next Christmas, you know their marketing machine will be in full gear announcing the massive library coming in 2008.

Quote
Plus, Lost Odyssey is supposed to hit Japan in the first half of next year, so it would make a lot more sense to plan for that to be their big US RPG release of the next holiday season.

If this is true then I agree that a better scenario would be Mass Effect in April/May, Blue Dragon in late July, followed by Lost Odyssey for Christmas. I sure hope these games live up to my expectations. My hope and dreams for the Xbox 360 JRPG offensive rest in the hands of Mistwalker. smile  Remember, they also have the action RPG Cry On.

Devil May Cry 4 is a PS3 exclusive.

I heard end of 2007 for this. Has it been moved up? I tried to limit the timeframe to May, as moving past that date made alot of titles highly questionable. This is also why I left off Unreal Tournament 2007 (Now scheduled for late June) and Enchanted Arms (Late 2007).

Is anyone else worried that Gears of War is the Brute Force of the 360?  That game had a major "Halo" push at the time and then fell like a stone covered in concrete.

I think this will be a good game, but I don't think it can possibly live up to the hype. I see a huge opening run for the Gears of War, and then it drops off quickly within a month or two. The storyline and/or single player experience will be its Achille's Heel. I hope I'm wrong.


I've also heard more than once that Blue Dragon for the 360 will be held until early October for a U.S. release, followed by Halo 3 in November. This gives Microsoft "two titans" for the holiday 2007 season. If this is true, Blue dragon better get some damned added content since it would be held almost a full year after the Japanese release.
