15481  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Game Discussion: Front Mission 4 [PS2] on: May 29, 2004, 05:07:57 PM
I'd love to get this game, but I simply don't have the lifestyle to devote the time necessary to put into it.

Maybe I will though...

Don't give into peer pressure....nobody else does. slywink

Yeah right.

Just preordered the other day, and I got the collector's edition. According to my local EB joint, nobody is preordering the collector's edition. Which is a shame in my mind actually considering the game.

Oh well. Better chance of getting a collector's edition in my mind. smile

EDIT:  HOLY FRICKIN' CRAP!  You're right!  Well I'm not buyin' that stinkin' game.  No multiplayer?  That was the best way to play.  What a sham.  Hell I'm going to start writing River City Ransom for the consoles.

I'm highly, highly pissed that there's no 2-player connectivity for this game. That was the best feature about the NES game, and it's absolutely digusting that there's no capability in this remake.

In addition, the teammate AI is pretty much pathethic. Make sure you turn off all teammate damage if you intend to play that way.

It's too bad that this game is so damn much fun to play...
15484  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo DS question on: May 29, 2004, 04:51:32 PM
I'm guessing the DS will be based on the B standard, as the G is far more power hungry. In addition, would you really need to transmit that much game data between DS's on a constant basis? I sure hope not.

Keep in mind that the Xbox and PS2 work just fine with the B standard if you have a wireless configuation for the consoles.

Also...I thought that the DS info we got said that it has Bluetooth compatibility as well... Gotta go double check that.

"Gamers will also have the ability to load up a human player’s V.I.P profile in order to play against the virtual opponent rather than play the default computer AI. Profiles can also be uploaded and downloaded via Xbox Live which brings things to an even higher level."

Remember - Sega has been doing this for some time now (just not in this game). Remember Virtua Fighter 4 (the non Evo version)? You can teach an AI to play like you do. Heck - lots of your opponents in VF4: Evo are based upon real players over in Japan thanks to that AI thing.

After hacking my way through tons of monsters, dying ,many times, and facing the (surprisingly easy) final boss, all I get is a one minute voiceover?

Sounds about right. All they need to do is set up the game for the sequel, and they're all set.

It's a sad but true fact (in my experience anyway) about gaming - if there's a sequel in the works, the ending tends to suffer greatly.

I expect the price of games will be $29.99 - $34.99 US, and unit itself to be $149.99 - $199.99 (not to exceed $200)

Pretty much what I'm expecting as well. We'll see how it pans out though as the release date nears in the upcoming months.

Note: The games all list March 1st, 2005, but the system is 11/29/2004. What's the target date? Christmas, or 1st quarter?

Last I heard the system was due out before the end of the year. One thing though - you notice the price of the games? $49.99? I'm sorry, but I have very little intention on buying a portable console game at that price point.

I just wanted to thank the person responsible for the "Old School" pics in the E3 gallery.  Excellent stuff there.  The museum undoubtedly has a website which I am about to search for.  Thanks!

*bows*

You had absolutely no idea how old I felt when I visited that place on Thursday, as I had played quite a few of the consoles there during my life so far. The best part? They had most of the consoles actually hooked up and playable just a few feet away. Such an amazing throwback to videogaming history.

And Nintendo finally realizes that everyone has been talking about the DS all day and releases the official PR about it.

A new Metroid game? A new Mario title? A new Wario Ware game? And quite a few big-name 3rd party supporters? Sounds like this might do rather well.

I look at the DS this way - it has 4 face buttons, plus the L and R buttons (or at least should have anyway).

What does that mean? SNES ports!  :twisted:

15496  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?
15497  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
15498  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...
15499  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?
15500  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.
15501  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.
15502  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.

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.

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

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.

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
15510  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.
15511  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.

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.

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
