6441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A great writeup about the state of Gaming on: May 25, 2005, 06:41:29 PM
There's some good points in there, but some of them seem more like personal preference than an overall view of what gamers want.  Also, anyone who thought the Final Fantasy commercials were showing gameplay footage must have really been out of touch with the games at the time slywink

There's one mistake, though -
"if you want to get me revved up about Madden 2006 on the XBox 360, don't show me a damned screenshot that's obviously from a cutscene"
According to the developers, the actual gameplay looks better than those shots.
6442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KOTOR 3 News? on: May 25, 2005, 06:38:27 PM
6443  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / riviera on: May 25, 2005, 06:46:56 AM
It sounds good to me.  June is going to be a good month for RPGs - Riviera, Atelier Iris, and Arc the Lad : End of Darkness.
6444  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Witcher preview on: May 25, 2005, 03:07:48 AM
Gamespot has posted an E3 preview of the upcoming RPG The Witcher.  It provides some gameplay details, and the combat sounds like it could be very interesting.  It sounds like the system used in Summoner for the PC, where you click your mouse at the right time to hit you opponents.  The game is also looking really nice, especially considering that it uses the Bioware NWN engine.
6445  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A Boy and His Blob for DS on: May 24, 2005, 12:54:51 AM
I didn't see anything about it being at E3, but Majesco is making either a remake or sequel to the NES game A Boy and His Blob for the DS.  Worthplaying has some screenshots, but no details about the game.
6446  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Flipnic - Ultimate Pinball on: May 23, 2005, 06:45:08 PM
EBGames has it listed for July 13, but Gamestop doesn't have a listing for it yet.
6447  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I think I'm going to sell my PSP on: May 23, 2005, 06:38:54 PM
NIS America is brining Generation of Chaos, described as "Monopoly meets Final Fantasy Tactics" (whatever that means slywink) to the US next spring.  They were working on a Disgaea-type game called Makai Wars, but it's been put on hold.
6448  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Shadow Hearts 3 characters revealed on: May 21, 2005, 07:29:59 PM
RPGamer has a very nice new trailer for the game.  It's from the Japanese demo, although it's mislabeled an "E3 trailer" at the site.  The game comes out in a couple months in Japan, so hopefully, we'll get word on a US release not long after that.
6449  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo gets stupid... on: May 20, 2005, 06:35:12 AM
All Nintendo is doing is providing potential customers with a choice.  If you want the regular-sized GBA, buy that, and if you want something smaller, buy the Micro.  If you already have a GBA, you're not missing out on anything by not getting the new one.  Nintendo makes money, and customers have more choice.  What's wrong with that?
6450  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Nintendo Revolution on: May 20, 2005, 06:30:54 AM
In an interview on G4, Reggie Fils-Aime gave a hint about the controller, saying that, in order to play the NES - Gamecube games, you'd need a controller that would be able to play like all the earlier controllers.  This certainly sounds like the controller will be configurable in some way, possibly with the changeable touchscreen idea rumored before E3.
6451  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No surprise announcements this year? on: May 19, 2005, 06:24:01 PM
There's a rumor that Nintendo and Retro (makers of the Metroid Prime games) are going to announce a major new FPS for the Revolution today.
6452  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Blizz at E3? on: May 18, 2005, 09:38:11 PM
They like to make a big splash when they announce a new game, so they don't announce them at E3.  I imagine it won't be long after, though.
6453  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Flipnic - Ultimate Pinball on: May 18, 2005, 09:23:16 AM
IGN has a hands-on look at this very cool-sounding pinball adventure game here.  It looks great, and it's only $20.
6454  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best video game trailer ever? on: May 18, 2005, 07:24:50 AM
The best trailer I've seen is the final trailer for Prince of Persia : The Sands of Time, with Shadow Hearts : Covenant coming in second.
6455  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why isn't anyone talking about the new 2d Mario platformer? on: May 17, 2005, 10:24:50 PM

And Luigi gets the shaft again!  Someday, living in Mario's shadow is just going to be too much, and Luigi is going to beat Mario to a pulp slywink

I didn't like either Super Mario 64 or Sunshine, so I'm glad Mario's going to be in 2D again.
6456  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 Games to be $59.99 each... on: May 17, 2005, 10:21:56 PM
Until Microsoft announces something official, this is just a guess by EB.  It could go either way at this point - $50 or $60.
6457  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Digital Devil Saga 1 - I need some opinions on it.... on: May 17, 2005, 10:20:54 PM
I'd recommend playing DDS first.  It uses a very similar battle system, but overall, the gameplay is simpler and easier.  I'd still buy Nocturne now, before its gets any rarer, but it would probably be easier to play after going through DDS.
6458  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nominees for strangest game at E3. on: May 17, 2005, 10:18:10 PM

Odama - a pinball wargame with a pool of naked bald men.
6459  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone else impressed with the DS games at E3? on: May 17, 2005, 10:17:31 PM
I'd buy a DS just for M&L 2, but there are also a lot of other games that look great, like Animal Crossing, Super Mario Bros, and Metroid Pinball.
6460  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / E3 2005 - Best Screenshots on: May 17, 2005, 10:12:31 PM
It looks like Angel is thrashing Spike in the lobby of Wolfram & Hart slywink


What's even odder is that this is a pinball wargame.
6461  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox 360] Final Fantasy XI on: May 17, 2005, 08:13:31 PM
As long as the "numbered" FF games stay exclusive to Sony (and that appears to be the case with the PS3), the FF games on the other consoles aren't of much consequence.
6462  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Where can I find a video of that FF7 PS3 tech demo? on: May 17, 2005, 07:37:25 PM
With all the work that would have to go into remaking FF7 for the PS3, they'd be better off just making a sequel.
6463  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FALLOUT 3 on: May 17, 2005, 07:05:37 AM
"And if it's just Morrowind with guns, kill as many of the Bethesda employees as you can before you're taken out by security."
When they announced they had bought the rights, they also said that it would be nothing like Morrowind.
6464  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atelier Iris delayed a month on: May 17, 2005, 06:22:03 AM
According to RPGamer, Nippon Ichi America's Atelier Iris has been delayed until June 28.
6465  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Where can I find a video of that FF7 PS3 tech demo? on: May 17, 2005, 06:18:32 AM
Gamespot has it available for download, and it is amazing.
6466  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 Release Date: November 2005 on: May 17, 2005, 06:04:34 AM
Also, according to Gamespot, the US version will add voice acting to the cut-scenes and a new "graphical user interface" smile
6467  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy Advent Children Trailer on: May 17, 2005, 06:03:21 AM
While I hope the story and localization hold up, this will be worth watching just to see it.
6468  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Playstation 3 on: May 17, 2005, 02:03:10 AM
I'm really surprised Sony is this far along - I figured they wouldn't even have the unit on display.  According to IGN, some tech demos showed the actual Spiderman model from the Spiderman 2 movie and a recreation of the FF7 intro sequence both running in real-time on the PS3 :shock:

As for the controller, I couldn't care less about what it looks like, as long as it plays well.  The slanted D-pad and buttons have me concerned, but I'll reserve judgment until I've heard some hands-on impressions of how it feels.
6469  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What annoucement I'm REALLY hoping for? on: May 17, 2005, 01:34:27 AM
The announcement of the US release of Dragon Quest 8 already has me giddy, but I'm really hoping Sony announces Dark Cloud 3.
6470  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 Release Date: November 2005 on: May 17, 2005, 01:31:36 AM
Only 6 more months to wait for DQ8!  This is going to be a very expensive fall and winter for me.  I think fiscal year 2006 ends in March, so that would put FF12 in the early spring.  Also, Square had a recreation of the FF7 intro running in real-time on the PS3 at Sony's press conference - perhaps meaning the rumored FF7-2 will be a PS3 title.
6471  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Shadow Hearts 3 characters revealed on: May 16, 2005, 07:27:20 PM
There's an interview at RPGFan that talks a little about the series' sales.
6472  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Who are your favorite & least fav modern Star Trek char' on: May 16, 2005, 07:35:15 AM
Benjamin Sisko is my favorite character in all of Trek.  Just thinking about Sisko's monologue from "In the Pale Moonlight" where he says that he'd have knowlingly let an innocent person be killed to get the Romulans to join the Dominion War still gives me chills.  Garak would be my second pick - I love conflicted characters and he was more developed than some of the main characters have been.

The only character that I ever really disliked was Neelix, who I found annoying.
6473  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Shadow Hearts 3 characters revealed on: May 16, 2005, 05:06:16 AM
I read in an interview that Covenant sold about as well in the US as the original Shadow Hearts did, so that's a good sign for #3.  Also, the fact that it's set in the US and the small, but devoted following the series has gained bode well.  I also have a sneaking suspicion that someone high-up at Midway is a big fan of the series.  It's just so different from what the games Midway usually puts out, it's really odd that they were the ones that brought the first two games to the US.
6474  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Shadow Hearts 3 characters revealed on: May 15, 2005, 06:53:55 AM
RPGamer has some details on three newly-announced characaters for Shadow Hearts 3.

"Mao loves to drink, and shamelessly takes advantage of her being a cat to ignore the Prohibition laws. In a fight, Mao is a Drunken Master, and the drunker she is, the more deadly she becomes."

"Hildegarde Valentine...Her ability in battle is Calorie Counting. Depending on how many calories she has consumed, she can transform into various shapes. Some of them might even do something to change her generally bratty, self-centered, and violent personality." And, she's a vampire.

I love the game already slywink
6475  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo E3 lineup (Mario & Luigi 2!) on: May 15, 2005, 06:37:56 AM
How odd - I didn't notice the typo and glossed right over the '06.  I can't see GI making two mistakes like that (and using '06 twice) but I can't see anyone going to the trouble of making a realistic-looking fake that only announces a bunch of games that are known (or heavily rumored) to be in production and a subtitle.
6476  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo E3 lineup (Mario & Luigi 2!) on: May 14, 2005, 08:56:09 PM
As seen on the front page of CG, Nintendo will be showing a sequel to the excellent Mario & Luigi : Superstar Saga (now for the DS) at E3.  I figured I'd eventually get a DS to play Final Fantasy 3, but this seals it.  The original M&L was so full of imaginative ideas, I can only imagine what they're going to come up with using the DS.  Also, there's a listing for a Mario soccer game, joining Mario Baseball and Mario Basketball, as well as a full-fledged Pokemon RPG for the Gamecube.
6477  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox RPG's - the future just got **much** brighter.... on: May 14, 2005, 10:46:37 AM
RPGFan and RPGamer have some new details regarding Blue Dragon and the newly-unveiled second game, Lost Odyssey.
6478  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atlus E3 lineup on: May 13, 2005, 06:52:37 PM
Worthplaying has details and screens for the games.
6479  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF7 : Advent Children coming September 14 on: May 13, 2005, 07:37:13 AM
According to Gamespot the Final Fantasy 7 sequel movie will be released simultaneously in the US and Japan on September 14.
6480  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who all is excited about the big PS3 unveiling?! on: May 13, 2005, 01:49:25 AM
I doubt we'll hear much about about either the PS3 or Revolution at E3.  Both Sony and Nintendo will be concentrating on their handhelds.  I wouldn't be surprised at a big PS3 unveiling in November, just ahead of the XBox 360 launch, though.
