9161  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).

And just to clarify, this Quake game is not actually played through your browser, it is just launched from a browser window.

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!

Yup, just got the official notice and posted it on the front page.  smile

Just a note, in your post you said that it's a "$50 price drop across the board" but it's actually only $50 for the Premium, the Core drops $20 and the Elite $30. 

That's not quite as much as I was hoping for, I know that.

oh yeah i forgot about the new internal memory...64mb,wow....wish the rumoured 4 gig was true,lol

The internal memory will only be used 'to decrease load times' (although there was a video somebody posted where the head guy said it would increase them  retard). Unfortunately Sony doesn't realize (or refuse to acknowledge) that the best way to get rid of load times would be to dump the entire game onto a memory card. MAN what a difference.

There's just no good/easy way I could see it happen, short of somehow requiring the disc to be in the slot before the dumped game on the memory card loads up.

Yeah, that PR tool in the video at the start of the thread actually says "increased load times" multiple times.  I'm glad the person they chose to demo the unit is so well informed. 
9170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Slim hands on video on: August 06, 2007, 03:27:32 AM
So all I gleamed from that huge heap of crap you posted, CK, was that it will become available sometime after September and still only be called the PSP. 
9171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Slim hands on video on: August 06, 2007, 01:58:05 AM
I haven't been following too closesly, but does this thing have a real name yet?  Will it be the PSP Slim?  Any idea what the actual street date is?

I have no idea why I'm interested in this thing now, I would probably be better off spending that money on games for systems I have. 
9172  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Best Buy deals on: August 06, 2007, 01:40:10 AM
New movies and CDs always come out on Tuesday, that's nothing new. 

I've always been surprised that games are so  goofy about when they are released since two other established mediums have a nice uniform day across all stores.  Wouldn't it be nice to have "New Game Thursday" so you could go into a Target or EB or Best Buy and all of them would have the new games for that week on the shelf that day?

Did the hackers do anything specific that indicates the attack was due to homophobia? Or is it just assumed because of the site in question?

Yes, according to this "someone began flooding the site's forums and chat room with hate speech, including some death threats, and over-sized images meant to bog down the site". 
9174  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Official iPhone Tool on: August 05, 2007, 05:34:15 AM
Yes, I interpreted your comment of "all English, didn't make sense" to mean that you weren't sure what the difference between EDGE and GRPS were.  My mistake.  Carry on.

9176  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Aion MMO on: August 05, 2007, 04:40:42 AM
They showed video of it at E3 last year but I haven't heard much lately.  MMO's take a long time to come to fruition.

The screenshots look nice but I don't necessarily trust NCSoft to develop something that appeals to me.

I guess they don't expect the problems to end any time soon, eh?
Every console made between launch and about now is guaranteed to fail. It's not a question of if, it's a question of when.
And every car ever made is guaranteed to fail.  It's not a question of if, it's a question of when. 

But your car has an average life span of greater than 1 year.

And your car costs a hundred times a 360 and is still partial to massive recalls due to faulty parts and manufacturing.  Like Ford recalling 3.6 million vehicles due to the same problem that they recalled 6.2 million vehicles for a couple years ago.  Not to mention all of the other recalls car companies due.  

Your arguement was that all 360s are guaranteed to fail.  As I (and others) pointed out, so is everything else.  I'm not defeding the 360 failure rates I'm just saying that your statement was stupid.

It just occurred to me that this has left a very nice opening for Mercenaries 2.  Hopefully that one ships on time and turns out as awesome as it looks, because I think it deserves some success.  Plus, it is actually shipping for 360, PS3, PS2 as well as the PC at the same time, supposedly.   Of course there is still plenty of time for a delay...

Well, McFarlane has repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to squander millions of dollars on absolutely nothing.

And get involved with shitty videogames, even though stuff like Spawn should be fodder for the ultimate action game.

Well, that's kind of a bummer but the holidays were already too crowded. 

It's a good thing Peter Moore got that GTAIV tatoo...now that it's been delayed and he's working at EA it all seems worth it.  Sorry, somebody had to say it and I felt today was my turn to be a jerkass.

and how the hell does that motion control work?,the Wii had to have a sensor bar

The Wii's sensor bar is for direct pointer control but it also has accelerometers in the nunchuck and remote to detect tilting and accelerating motion.  The Sixaxis just has accerlometers.

Too Human isn't cancelled yet, just won't be out until next year.  Which is probably good considering how many other action games are due before Christmas.

I would love to see the Core disappear since it was a bad idea to start with, but Microsoft seems pretty committed to it so I doubt it will be fully gone either.  As with all rumors, time will tell.

At either price that is an excellent deal!  I never did get around to buying the Return of the King Extended Edition, so I think the time is now.  Although I'm sure they will be coming out with some sort of  HD uber-version at Christmas or something, I don't have an HD player so they can screw off (for now).

Godfather 3 would've been okay if they cut out Andy Garcia and Scorseze's(sp?) daughter... It still didn't do the first two movies any justice.

I would definitely be on a game for the second movie, especially on the Wii.

Coppola's daughter...and yeah, those two were really not worthy to be in that movie.  She is one of the worst actresses I've seen in a big budget movie.
9199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata question on: July 30, 2007, 01:02:51 AM
Maybe it gets easier the more you play, but I thought I had read in some impressions here that said it only gets more chaotic as time goes on.  I played for an hour or so and I had probably 20 pinatas in that little square of land (forgive my names, but I had worms, mice, birds, butterflies, a snake, toad, bunny...).  It just felt like I was being pulled in 10 directions at once and there was constant new stuff popping up and it wasn't letting me experiment and set things up the way I wanted.  I can't imagine trying to handle all of that with an area that is many times larger.
9200  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Stranglehold...which are you getting? on: July 29, 2007, 12:25:41 PM
I think the PS3 version is the only one that is coming a little later, with the PC and 360 versions still coming out at the end of August.
