As I mentioned in that other PSP Slim thread, they also have the ice-silver Daxter Pack and white Star Wars Pack for preorder. 

According to the Toys R Us preorder page, the Daxter Pack comes with a 1GB memory stick, a Family Guy video pack and Daxter.  The Star Wars pack only comes with the new Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron game.

I don't keep up with things too much, but aren't regular DVDs at 480p?  Wouldn't it have been a better test to just put in HD-DVDs and check results at 720p vs 1080p?  I'm not saying there is a huge difference, but having the same source could easily change the results.

I'm curious, if you're only putting on deodorant, why not just use cologne or something that is bound to smell better than Speed Stick? 

Okay, you don't understand what deodorant does.

It doesn't just cover up the smell, it prevents the smell.  Cologne doesn't do that.  You can still have bad BO w/ cologne.  With deodorant you might be sweaty, but still not stinky.

Kratz knows of what he speaks.

One time (and only one time), I ran out of deodorant. I used cologne to try to mask the lack of deodorant.

I made an early lunch-time run to the store for a stick of deodorant that day. icon_wink

Well, I have to admit that the last time I used regular deodorant without antipersperant was back in the awkward teenage years of overflowing hormones and uncontrollable sweating (as well as other things).  I may have to give it a try again next time I buy a stick.  Maybe even some of wonderpug's Tom's of Maine stuff.  smile

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames - Mitch demands I buy this title.  *shrug*  Looks like an improved Just Cause.

Bite your tongue,  heathen.  I loved Mercenaries, and couldn't stand Just Cause at all.  I hope it's more an improved mercenaries than an improved Just Cause....because anything would be an improvement over that steaming pile...

Educate me.  Looks like free-form, hijack anything, go anywhere, blow anything up, help the factions gameplay.  Am I missing something?

Since Just Cause was an imitation of Mercenaries 1, I don't think so.

Nope, you got the basic elements right, but as you well know, the devil is in the details.  I mean crap...that list there could almost describe GTA or Saints Row, or any free-form game.

Mercenaries got those details right...Just Cause didn't.  It was just a pale imitation, a lost cause.

besides, in Mercs 2 you get to whack Venezuelans and help prepare for our eventual invasion!!!!

I enjoyed both Mercs 1 and Just cause for what they were, and I think Mercenaries 2 will probably be damn well awesome. 

My GOTY so far:
Crackdown or DiRT

GOTY played but not released in 2007:
hmm, I'll have to think about that

Anticipated GOTY material (or what I'm excited about):
Mercenaries 2
Halo 3
some others that may or may not work out (Aassassin's Creed, Army of Two, etc)

I did some looking around and a quote from Sony says for the new versions: "The Daxter PSP Pack will be available September 10th, the Star Wars PSP pack will be available on October 9.  The core PSP will be available in September, I don't have a hard date yet." 

Amazon is showing preorders for the PSP 2000 available on September 10th for the $169 core price and the Daxter or Star Wars packs at $199, so that is good news.  Toys R Us shows the Daxter pack coming with Daxter (obviously), a 1GB memory stick, and Family Guy: The Freakin' Sweet Collection video with the ice silver PSP. 

In other news I picked up my first PSP game today (MX vs ATV On the Edge for $11 at CC) so I think I will have to actually buy a PSP now.  slywink

I just noticed the Filefront link goes to Fileshack.

Yeah, but if you copy his text you can get to the right place. 

I tried the demo out for a few minutes, and what I saw wasn't too bad.  Some of the interface elements were a bit different than the standards, so that would take a little while to get used to.  I had to turn the textures down to medium but it ran pretty decent on my aging rig.

Well, Rockstar North (developers of GTA) used to be DMA Designs, and Take Two changed Barking Dog Studios to Rockstar Vancouver and Angel Studios to Rockstar San Diego a couple years ago. 

But I still think the 2K name is much worse than Irrational.

It's not like they replace your unit with a brand new one, they send you a refurbished one and they have plenty of older ones of those around I'm guessing.

I think the big ones for me were that G.I. Joe aircraft carrier, one of the Transformers group-bots (like the Constructicons) and any kind of off-road RC car.  I would have killed for an RC car.  Maybe that's why I love playing driving games so much.

I thought Conviction had been announced as a 360 exclusive for a long time, like last year.  Whatever reason they give it's not likely the full story, though I doubt it's just because they are lazy.

I'm just suspect of StarShifter's opinion because his main point in every post about the game is that you play a hot woman witch, as if that is something that could take a mediocre game and make it awesome.

I've never seen the point in deodorant without antipersperant, but maybe that's just me. 
9150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: stranglehold demo now on marketplace on: August 09, 2007, 09:45:23 AM
I enjoyed the demo and I think I would enjoy the full game, but I'm not super excited about it.  For the most part it felt like an enhanced Max Payne.  That's not a bad thing, but it wasn't all that new other than the awesome amounts of destruction. 

I agree that the graphics are just a bit off.  I also think that during "Tequila Time" it was harder to spot enemies than in full color and wished they had some sort of highlight or outline in that mode. 

Right now I'm on the fence whether to keep or cancel my $50 shipped preorder.
9151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NPD: 30% of Xbox 360 Owners Aware of HD Graphics on: August 09, 2007, 02:18:24 AM
I'm very surprised at the low numbers that are aware of the HD functionality.  I wouldn't be if it was just about who was running it in an HD resolution.  Whether you run a 360 or PS3 in HD or not, you still get the added benefit of faster processors, more memory and many graphical effects that just aren't possible on a Wii or last generation console at the same resolution. 

Similarly I'm happy running PC games at 1024x768 but many other people insist it must be playable at 1600x900 or higher.  Same game, different resolutions.  (of course you can also turn other effects on and off with PC games, but that's another subject). 
9152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gay Gamer hacked on: August 09, 2007, 02:13:16 AM
In one sense I feel that a game site and homo/heterosexuality are mutually exclusive and have no place in one another.  However, just take a look at some of the threads around here that get scantily clad female pictures posted or mentions of "plundering her booty" and you can see that it is quite prevalent here.  Of course that doesn't affect the front page and the actual content of the site, but I can still see it being an attitude some people may want to avoid after a while. 
9153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: stranglehold demo now on marketplace on: August 08, 2007, 02:27:26 PM
My download is at about 35% and it's time for me to go so it will have to wait until later today.

I've said before that I don't mind short games and I would much rather play something all the way through and want to restart than to never finish it.  For example, I didn't mind the length of Max Payne.  However, I surely hope that each of the 9 levels in Stranglehold is longer than 25 minutes...that is just a bit too freaking short. 
9154  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Why the 360 fails on: August 08, 2007, 02:24:17 PM
There is also a vertical fan stand that I've seen at places like Target.  I would be more willing to trust something like that than one of those that puts itself between the power supply and the 360 (for which there were reports of problems a while ago).

I was under the impression that it screwed up your credit (at least in the short term) to sign up and immediately cancel credit cards.  No?

You wouldn't necessarily have to cancel it right away, just make sure you pay off the balance before the 12 months is up and then shove it in your safe box or whatever until you feel like cancelling it (and watch out for annual fees, of course).

I bought it and returned it a few days later. I just wasn't into it, for some reason. The tracks seemed boring (I was shocked at this, as at first glance, they blew my mind) and slow, and the OMG crashes just weren't up to par with, say Burnout.
I'm waiting for my 360 to return so I can get some proper arcade racing in Dirt.

Don't forget about FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage in a month.  That's some real arcade destruction racing!
