15481  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo DS article in USA Today on: May 11, 2004, 01:23:15 PM
And I thank you very much for that news post. Front page news!  biggrin
15482  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dress at E3?? on: May 11, 2004, 03:29:10 AM
Quote from: "Eco-Logic"
Sweet.  Thanks a lot for the info guys.  That is pretty much what I was thinking.  Now I found out I may have to wear a shirt from the company I am "representing".  Oh well, see ya there!

So, what are you 'representing'? We might have to meet somewhere. smile
15483  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The new consoles of E3 on: May 10, 2004, 04:34:24 AM
And my thoughts:

1) The Nintendo DS will turn many heads, but nobody will truly know what to make of it. Developers will sign up (as already stated), but just because Nintendo is #1 in the handheld business. Will it turn into another Virtual Boy though? A good question.

2) Current knowledge (just based on tech costs) place the Sony PSP at a very high purchase cost. Developers will be wary to join, as they don't know how many will be sold. However, this is Sony we're talking about here. The #1 leader in console sales.

3) I'm actually impressed with the redesign of the N-Gage QD. Not only does it not look like a steel taco, but it looks like they've taken all the complaints of the original and fixed them. Will I ever buy one? Between my GBA and my Tungesten T3, I don't need another portable gaming device. Nor do I really need a cell phone that can be a gaming console.

4) The DISCover and ApeXtreme consoles are nothing but glorified PCs in a box. Will they do well? Other companies have sold PCs in a box rather well (Gateway, Dell, etc), but this is the other extreme - Gaming PCs in a box, designed to play PC games on your home TV. I'm not quite sure how well they'll do.

5) It's still my opinion based on the complete and utter lack of any mention of the Phantom and of any companies working on the Phantom (as they're all announcing DS and PSP support) that the console will make the same appearance as Duke Nukem Forever. IE: None. I won't eat my hat if it is there, but I'll be rather surprised.

Thoughts?
15484  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fire Emblem - Cubed! on: May 10, 2004, 04:22:07 AM
Quote from: "Belgedin"
I expect the name will remain the same. So far the port is only slated for release in Japan. I don't know much about the other Tales, I think it is called "Tales of Rebirth." All I know is the main character is pretty cool looking (kind of Sephiroth-esque.) Maybe GC will get a port of that one... tit-for-tat and all that slywink

From what I know so far, Tales of Symphonia is a Gamecube exclusive, at least in the US. Will Namco change their minds eventually? Depends on how well it sells in the US. Buy that fantastic looking game! smile
15485  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fire Emblem - Cubed! on: May 08, 2004, 11:16:47 PM
While I'm looking forward to Fire Emblem, the title I want to see (and own) is Tales of Symphonia for the Gamecube. I've always loved the Tales series in its previous incarnations, and I have very high hopes for this one as well.

And it's about time the Gamecube got a second RPG...
15486  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The new consoles of E3 on: May 08, 2004, 08:39:08 PM
So, here's a fun topic - what do you think of all the new consoles making their debut here at this year's E3? To my knowledge, we have the following (with PR pieces linked where available, and in whatever order I think up this list):

1) The Nintendo DS
2) The Sony PSP
3) Nokia N-Gage QD
4) The DISCover and ApeXtreme consoles?
5) The Infinium Phantom?

So, what do you all think of these upcoming consoles? Will the public accept all these options? Will there be any games on them? Or will they simply cease to exist and vanish away in a ghostly puff of vaporware?
15487  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Champions : Return to Arms preview on: May 08, 2004, 05:22:53 PM
Yeah, I'm quite impressed with what I've seen so far in previews and screenshots. May the game turn out to be as good as Champions of Norrath.
15488  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sports Gaming on the GBA on: May 07, 2004, 11:30:09 PM
I thought the Mario Golf line of GBC and GBA games was pretty well made. Not exactly realistic, but a ton of fun.

Beyond that...there isn't much unfortunately.
15489  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Game Boy Advance-Worth it? on: May 07, 2004, 07:12:40 PM
Quote from: "Rage"
SO, is a GBA really worth it?

Is the GBA worth it? It's a piece of junk you can't see any games on. The GBA SP on the other hand, is most definitely worth your gaming dollar. Out of the hundreds and hundreds (I honestly think it's in the thousands now at least) of games on the GB, GBC, and GBA, you'll find something that suits your gaming fancy.

And best of all, if you own a Gamecube, odds are you might own a title that'll support the GBA SP and the link cable for additional excitement.
15490  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GC - Animal Crossing 2 on: May 07, 2004, 01:06:18 AM
Quote from: "Andy"
I blame Nintendo for delaying the PAL release of Animal Crossing for about a decade.

A good blame. I mean, WHY did it take them something like a year to translate this game? I mean, come on, converting to the funky  :twisted:  PAL standard isn't all that hard.
15491  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo and Sega's big annoucements thread-- bring it on! on: May 07, 2004, 01:03:45 AM
Quote from: "Devil"
Mario Kart Triple Dash and Sega hooks up with N-Gage. :lol:

*head explodes*

In all honesty, I think it would take a near act of God to get Nintendo to fully think up something entirely and utter original AND have it be a new system seller. Then again all of their 1st/2nd party titles are instant money-makers...

As far as the Sega thing goes, well, we have their game lineup now listed on our site, and I don't see anything fancy there as far as games go...

So, is Sega joining with one of the big three? Why limit their profits? Are they going to attempt the console hardware route again? I highly doubt it. So what does that leave us with? Sega Sanshiro. He will save Sega! smile

I'm sorry folks, but Soundwave is, and has always been, supreme. That is all.

Was that the one who'd turn into a portable cassette player?

Not sure where Infinium and McIGN fit in together...am I missing something?

While the Phantom one is funny, this is what I get for not checking my posts. Again.

OEM wireless controllers from Sony or Microsoft
The Phantom console (biggrin)
Any RPG info on any console or handheld
Gran Turismo 4

1) Haven't heard too much on OEM wireless controllers from the other two. Not surprising if this happens though considering the success of the Wavebird.
2) I can give you the design of the Phantom booth.
3) Check out Tales of Symphonia in our database. I should have a few more shots today as well.
4) Don't worry, I'll be spending some time at E3 with this game. Love the GT series. smile

As far as the Sega thing goes - nothing definite at all. Just random thought.
15496  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Forum Thoughts Sought on: May 06, 2004, 12:08:44 AM
Quote from: "Rage"
I highly reccomend you make a more obvious link that goes back to the forum's home page. I keep accidentally clicking that cool logo and going back to the sites main page.

Well, unless something has changed recently anyway, clicking on the words 'ConsoleGold Forum Index' underneath that cool logo takes you back to the main forum index.

And as far as images go - I think the 'Img' tag works, as long as you're willing to pay your own bandwith for wherever the image links off to. Just watch the seizure inducing ones, okay? Us staff members need to work you know. smile
15497  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KoTOR 2 to be announced today on: May 06, 2004, 12:01:28 AM
The first game came out of nowhere (at least for me anyway), and I was absolutely impressed by it. May the sequel do just as well, even though the same developers aren't behind it.
15498  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GC - Animal Crossing 2 on: May 06, 2004, 12:00:34 AM
Animal Crossing was unfortunately one of those quirky games where people either loved it or hated it, like the Harvest Moon games. So, it looks like we won't be getting the sequel. Too bad, actually.

As for The Urbz, it's basically The Sims, just in sequel form. More or less anyway based on what I've read.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell us about load zones. How frequent are they within missions? How big are the individual zones?

Actually, this is what I want to know as well, as that basically killed Deus Ex 2 for me on the PC. smile

15500  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / What games for 3 players? on: May 05, 2004, 05:45:53 PM
*looks*

Yup, Champions of Norrath supports 3 (or 4) players. It'll start getting a bit crowded with that many players, and it might be hard to find enough items to support your party, but it does allow 3 or 4 people.

Edit: HTML is hard. smile

Yeah, but at least the McNugget/McGriddle ones made me laugh. It was almost too ludicrous to be real. Not to mention very, very temporary.

I also couldn't explain it, but I was always hungry whenever I visited IGN back then as well... smile

And by the way - here's the new game record for KotOR 2. Notice the PR and concept artwork for all of you to ponder over.  biggrin

With that said, I want to commend the staff of CG, along with its designer(s), on giving a very clean and polished look to the site, without cluttering it up with unnecessary "bling bling". The information's easy to get, easy to read, and easy to digest. I'll be visiting this site more, personally, as a result. smile

Thank's for the compliment. I noticed IGN's 'look' a bit back as well, and I was just sorta stunned at the mess that main page was. Thank goodness for the bigger ads though...  :roll:

Now that is a very cool piece of cover art. Or just art in general. Nice find!

15505  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Crimson Sea 2 - Anyone played this one yet? on: May 03, 2004, 03:29:37 PM
While I haven't personally played it, I'd like to simply hype a feature of our database and show off what it can do:

http://www.consolegold.com/GameInfo/GameInfo.php?GameID=2027

A full game description, 3 interviews, and 4 reviews all posted in one easy to find place.

Sorry I can't answer your question though exactly. smile

15506  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WELCOME! on: May 03, 2004, 01:28:56 PM
Quote from: "Qbe"
Wow, nice job guys!  The site is much easier to use now.

Thanks for the compliments, Qbe, and everyone else for that matter. May you all enjoy the new look, design, etc, of the new site. We worked long and hard on every aspect of it.

Especially that blasted Search portion of the site up top. smile

As for what happens to Console Gaming up on GG, that's a good question. Odds are it's going to quiet down even more so than it has in the past. I know for one that I'll be posting here far more than I did over on GG.

Now to see if anything is broken...  :twisted:
