6161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Heroes of Might and Magic V public beta on: February 02, 2006, 12:30:13 PM
After reading a little at the official forums, the problems seem to be pretty minor.  The biggest complaint (other than Starforce) was that it was too similar to Heroes 3, and too "simple", neither of which I would consider a problem.  I didn't read that much, so there may be more, but it seems as though the beta might not be as bad as it would seem.
6162  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - GOLD - Ships 3/20!! on: February 02, 2006, 08:20:11 AM
I'm really hoping that there will be a demo.  As with Morrowind, I'm at or just above the minimum, and Morrowind wasn't really playable at the minimum specs.
6163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tomb Raider Legend Video on: February 02, 2006, 08:15:54 AM
Mine was up to 500K by the time it finished.
6164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire Load Times on: February 02, 2006, 08:13:55 AM
I just got to the Imperial City, and the load times do seem longer there, which isn't surprising, given its complexity.  Previous area load times never seemed that long, but load times rarely bother me in a game.  The only exception was Crash : Wrath of Cortex, with its ridiculous 50+ second loads.
6165  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire Load Times on: February 01, 2006, 11:26:26 PM
Once you're in the game, no load time should be over 15 seconds, so perhaps it's a problem with backwards compatibility?
6166  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Resident Evil 4 GCN now Player's Choice on: February 01, 2006, 08:49:56 PM
According to IGN, RE4 for the Gamecube is now a Player's Choice title, and should be available for $19.99.
6167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire Load Times on: February 01, 2006, 08:47:01 PM
The first load should be about 20-30 seconds, and the rest 10-15 or so.  It's about on par with KoTOR, but it seems to load a little more at the start, and less between areas once you've started.
6168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / John Romero's MMO on: January 31, 2006, 08:29:48 PM
It only took the OO thread 7 posts to get the three Romero keywords in - Daikatana, bitch, and frogs.  Can GT beat that record, ignoring the words in this post?  With sensible, rational posts like the one from Calvin, things are off to a slow start slywink
6169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Warlords for NDS & PSP? on: January 31, 2006, 08:00:19 PM
There's also talk of a portable version of Warlords 5.  As for Champions, it's supposed to be something different for the series and be somewhat "puzzle-like" at times.  I'm guessing it's an Advance Wars-type strategy game or an SRPG.
6170  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / This just in: 24 is AWESOME on: January 31, 2006, 07:17:44 AM
If you think the acting and writing is good in season 1, wait until you get to the current season.  They've really assembled some great writers and actors this season.  As far as ranking the seasons, I think season 3 was by far the best.  It had the most variety (I loved the scenes in Mexico), the single best episode (you'll know it when you see it), and the two best scenes of the series so far (the end of the above best episode and one of the final moments of the finale).  Seasons 1 and 2 are both very good, while I found season 4 disappointing, but still not bad.
6171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Want to find Rez or Disgaea new? Get a 'reprint'. on: January 29, 2006, 05:48:51 AM
I wouldn't care if it's a reprint or original, but I wouldn't want to do business with a company that lies to its customers.
6172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII Yangus' Adventure - A few thoughts on: January 28, 2006, 09:18:46 PM
I picked up Torneko for $2.50 a few months ago.  I'll have to try it out.
6173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Free Trackmania game on: January 28, 2006, 11:25:10 AM
The makers of the fun racing series Trackmania are giving away a free, standalone game called Trackmania Nations ESWC. There's a multiplayer mode that I haven't tried, and the single-player consists of 90 time-trial tracks. Worthplaying has the game here.
6174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden V coming March 28 on: January 28, 2006, 03:31:17 AM
There's also Final Fantasy 3 DS, FF5 and FF6 Advance.  Also, I recently got an e-mail from NIS America stating that they are having a "premiere event" in early February, which could either be for Atelier Iris 2 or an unannounced game.
6175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden V coming March 28 on: January 27, 2006, 08:10:41 PM
"Yeah, but most of those aren't confirmed for 2006. They're either TBA, TBA 2006 or Q(whatever) 2006. I left some of those off for that reason.  smile "
Well, if you have to get all technical about it slywink

Confirmed for 2006 -
Disgaea 2, Metal Saga, Steambot Chronicles, The Witcher, The Roots, Titan Quest, and Tao's Adventure.
6176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden V coming March 28 on: January 27, 2006, 06:58:17 AM
There's also Children of Mana and the PS2 Mana game, Disgaea 2, Dungeon Siege 2 expansion, Metal Saga, Shining Wind (probably), SMT : Devil Summoner, Steambot Chronicles, The Roots, The Witcher, Titan Quest, Xenosaga 1+2 for the DS, Tao's Adventure, Yggdra Union (probably), and (most likely) Tales of the Abyss and Tempest, and the two Valkyrie Profile games.  Also, I would guess Enchant Arm and Lost Odyssey for the 360 will also be headed to the US.
6177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Heroes of Might and Magic V public beta on: January 27, 2006, 06:45:46 AM
Am I missing something, or is there nowhere on that page where they mention what they don't like about the beta?
6178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII Yangus' Adventure - A few thoughts on: January 27, 2006, 06:43:27 AM
I don't see this game coming out in the US anyway, given the unpopularity of the few games of this type released here.
6179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden V coming March 28 on: January 27, 2006, 02:27:35 AM
It looks like the game pretty much pretends that 3 and 4 never existed.
6180  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden V coming March 28 on: January 26, 2006, 07:38:01 PM
It looks like it's going to be great.  The game is much more in the style of the first two, with a zoomed-out view, an overworld, six-person battles, etc.  Konami has also said this is supposed to be the longest and most story-packed of the games.
6181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden V coming March 28 on: January 26, 2006, 07:10:20 AM
Although it isn't coming out in Japan until the end of February, Suikoden V will be hitting the US March 28, according to IGN.  They have some English screenshots and Gamespot has some videos here.  Konami also revealed an RPG coming to the DS called Tao's Adventure.
6182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy: Dirge of Cerberus is out in Japan... on: January 26, 2006, 06:57:03 AM
Wow, it usually takes much longer than this for a Final Fantasy thread to devolve into an argument between the old style and new style, even if there's very little actual difference between them slywink
I'm not surprised by the Dirge of Cerberus response.  An FPS from Square was a risky proposition to begin with.  I wouldn't think the hype would be that high for it, even with the FF7 name.
6183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bethesda does Star Trek for Xbox 360, PC, DS, and PSP! on: January 25, 2006, 08:48:31 PM
I'd say it's more of a consequence of that fact that the vast majority of games are based around combat in one form or another.  This is also (hopefully) the first game in a series of new Trek games, so we can hope there will eventually be a game (an RPG preferably) that captures the full spirit of the shows.

BTW, I'd really recommend watching the last few seasons of DS9.  There's plenty of action in the combat, but it's really about the affects of the war on the characters, and it's absolutely outstanding.  Also, try to catch the episode "The Visitor" on cable sometime.  It's probably the finest hour of dramatic television I've ever seen.
6184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Legendia website on: January 25, 2006, 08:18:59 AM
No, Tales of Phantasia was an SNES game, and the first in the Tales series.  This is the first time it is officially coming to the US, although people may have played it through emulators and fan translations.  The US ToD2 was a PSOne game called Tales of Eternia in Japan.  The game called ToD2 in Japan, a PS2 game that was a direct sequel to ToD, was never released in the US.
6185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chibi Robo on: January 25, 2006, 08:15:48 AM
Game Informer is a good magazine for previews and exclusives, but their reviews are terrible.  A 6.25 for Paper Mario and Digital Devil Saga 2 and 8.25 for Suikoden 4?
6186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion collectors edition info! on: January 25, 2006, 08:12:00 AM
It's certainly a lot better than the lame collector's editions lately, like The Movies and Empire at War.
6187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 - Feb. 14th on: January 25, 2006, 01:25:44 AM
There's a preview at Gamespy.
6188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 - Feb. 14th on: January 24, 2006, 10:16:07 PM
The game seemed to get a lukewarm reception from what I read at GameFAQs, but the impressions of the US version have been very enthusiastic, including the story.
6189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - GOLD - Ships 3/20!! on: January 24, 2006, 08:06:20 PM
It's better than fluently :lol:
6190  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 - Feb. 14th on: January 24, 2006, 08:04:49 PM
I'll definitely be getting it, but I think I'm going to wait a while.  There are 4 RPGs coming out in the span of a month (Tales of Legendia, Grandia 3, MS Saga, and Tales of Phantasia) and I'll be probably preordering MS Saga and ToP since they're most likely to become rare quickly.  I'm going to try to hold out on G3 and ToL and get them used, but if someone puts them on sale for $40, I'll probably cave slywink
6191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Burnout 3 question on: January 24, 2006, 03:36:10 AM
IIRC, they only played once on my copy.  Is it saving your game status properly?  I can't think of any reason why they would keep playing unless it thinks that it's the first time you're playing either a race or crash mode.
6192  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Do you have a video game character crush? on: January 23, 2006, 08:12:56 AM
April's still a looker in Dreamfall -
The big plot twist in the game is that she was originally one of the Ringwraiths, and this is her without the hood on :twisted:
6193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Legendia website on: January 23, 2006, 06:44:44 AM
From what I've read, the PSOne version added and rebalanced skills in the game, and also featured a smoother combat system more in line with the other PSOne entries in the series.
6194  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Do you have a video game character crush? on: January 23, 2006, 03:27:08 AM
April Ryan is quite a looker -




 :wink:
6195  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Legendia website on: January 23, 2006, 12:15:04 AM
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it will.  There's a thread at RPGamer with a comparison of the SNES and GBA versions, and the GBA version looks quite a bit worse.
6196  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Legendia website on: January 22, 2006, 08:41:26 AM
There's also Tales of Phantasia for the GBA coming out one month later.  It's not exactly an audiovisual extravaganza, but it looks like it will be fun.
6197  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - GOLD - Ships 3/20!! on: January 21, 2006, 09:55:38 PM
Has Bethesda said if there will be a demo or not?  The post gives me hope, but without a demo, I wouldn't want to risk it.  I was a little over the minimum specs for Morrowind, and while the game ran, it was barely playable.
6198  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So, did anyone buy Wild Arms 4? on: January 21, 2006, 07:07:18 AM
The skill system is interesting, too.  Each character has ~50 skills to learn, both passive and usable skills.  They're earned upon attaining certain levels, but you can take a hit to HP/MP in exchange for learning them before you reach the required level.  You can also choose whether to use HP or MP in return for the skills.  It's simple, but makes for some interesting choices.
6199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Valkyrie Profile Sequel Official Site on: January 21, 2006, 07:03:32 AM
Dragon Quest Yangus is probably the iffiest, and even that's possible.  Hopefully, now that the DQ series has made a name for itself in the US, we'll get the Dragon Quest V PS2 remake brought over.
6200  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Valkyrie Profile Sequel Official Site on: January 21, 2006, 01:59:53 AM
Square Enix hasn't confirmed a US release, and it will probably be months before they do, given their track record.  It's not definite that it will be localized, but given the success of tri-Ace's last two games (Star Ocean and Radiata Stories), I think it's a strong possibility.  As for rereleasing the original, that's what the PSP VP is.
