9243  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 2 first-party Wii titles "Indefinitely postponed" on: April 01, 2007, 07:15:07 PM
According to the Wiicast, both first party Wii titles Disaster: Day of Crisis and Project H.A.M.M.E.R. have been indefinitely postponed according to a Nintendo press rep.  "They're not officially cancelled but I wouldn't count on seeing them until 2010 if at all."

The good news is that it's one less game with an idiotic acronym N.A.M.E.  The bad news is that there are two less original games coming for a system that really needs them. 

Of course, this could be some April fool's thing, but he posted it yesterday and as stated both games have been removed form Nintendo's website.  Time will tell.

Compared to my PC, which is in the same room, the 360 isn't very loud at all when just sitting there or playing things off the hard drive.  When then DVD drive spins up, though, that is a noisy whine.  I don't really notice it too much anymore, but it does add to the background noise. 

For media extenter duty I think it would be quieter thank your PC, especially since you say you can hear that from another room. 


????...i am not being funny but ...a loud whine?...this remeinds me of when some people on here complained when their DS made a loud noise when recharging...mine doesnt do that either

even when i did first get it and put in PGR4,it was a whirring it made......both yours and destructors 360 sound as though they are gonna blow!!! icon_confused

Eh...whine, whir, same thing.  When it spins up for full speed to play a game it makes whatever noise you want to call a fast spinny thing with a somewhat high pitched noise. 

From my very scientific test of currently playing The Tick DVD right now, it doesn't do it when playing movies.  I'm guessing because then it's just spinning at 1x speed.

When I was a little kid I took a shingle to the eye and had to wear an eye-patch for a while, including to school.  I faced no discrimination at that time, religious or otherwise. 

I wasn't wearing a blow-up saber at the time, but that's beside the point. 

Which reminds me, I can't believe we don't have an eye-patch wearing smilie.

Anyone remember the name of the game that's after Battletoads? It's around the 4:00 minute mark. I loved that game.

If you look in the comments to the right of the video he has every game listed in order of appearance.  After Battletoads was The Immortal.

Every time I hear the name Hudson Soft I think of Adventure Island...I used to love playing those games with my step-brother ages ago.  I may just have to download New Adventure Island and see how that one is since I never played the TG16 one(s). 
9257  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Console games are for stories on: March 31, 2007, 03:10:48 AM
For me gameplay absolutely takes precedence over story.  It's hard for me to come up with a single game I have where the story was what made me want to play it.  I don't play something like GTA because of it's storyline, I play it because of the driving, exploring, action and stuff. 

On the other hand, I would say that good characters can certainly be an appealing factor for me and give me reason to play a game.  Take a game like Sam & Max: I don't honestly give much of a care about the over-arching storyline, but the main characters and their interactions are reason enough for me to play (and love) the game. 

Of course having good missions and voice-overs and stuff helps me get into a game, but the big picture story rarely matters to me.  Especially since 80% of the time I don't end up finishing a game anyway.

Looks cool. Just hope it doesn't turn into the train-wreck that 28 Days Later turned into at the soldier compound.

My thoughts exactly.

I have a tiny hope for I Am Legend later this year, but considering they cast Will Smith in the lead role I am skeptical. 
9259  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown update today? on: March 30, 2007, 03:24:59 AM
According to MajorNelson:

Quote
Next time your pop your Crackdown disc in (and you are connected to Xbox Live) you’ll get prompted for a title update. According to what I am told, The update ‘addresses several minor technical issues to ensure a smoother online gameplay experience’  and ‘increases the number of ambient gang vehicles that populate Pacific City.’ That last one should held with the ‘Repo Man’ achievement.

There ya have it. What’s up with any DLC? No details yet…but we should have some news soon in it.

Well, in addition to the Hitman series Eidos did publish Just Cause and the sequel is being worked on (I was a fan, I know not everyone was). They also have Kane & Lynch, Age of Conan, Crossfire and the rumored Fear Effect 3 in development. 

Plus, we can always hope for sequels to 25 to Life and Reservoir Dogs, right?  slywink

Mind you, I'm not opposed to a more stealth-oriented game.  Hell, I loved both the Thief & Tenchu series.  I guess if I'm a ninja or medieval thief, it's just far more appealing.

Well Tenchu Z will be hitting the 360 in the US mid-June, so stay hardy!  The series does have it's faults, but for some reason I really like playing them.

Well, if you're interested in hooking up with some GT members for online Live action, head over to the Multiplayer forum for threads on scheduled games and check out the GamerTag list (that Purge is nice enough to keep updated) to add up to 100 forum chumps to your Friends list.

This page has a link to all the usual suspects if you still want to download it (GameVideos, FilePlanet, Worthplaying, etc). 

The trailer didn't show too much and it wasn't absolutely stunning, but there is no question in my mind that I will purchase this one. 

And I will second (or third, or fourth...) being thankful for this not being gangstas again.

Can you not use an HDMI cable with the Premium 360? How do you get 1080p?

I think currently you can get 1080p through TVs that accept that resolution via component (very few) and with VGA output.

So basically your paying 80 bucks more for a different color.
Good stuff.  eek

And the larger HDD. Why not sell the 120GB HDD for X number of dollars, add a proprietary HDMI cable to the current 360, and not bother with this new SKU?

My understanding is that this is going to be run as this third unit only until they get rid of the current crop of Premiums and then that will be replaced by the white version of this in the fall/winter or whatever, bringing it back to only two SKUs.

9274  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown Vs. Saint's Row on: March 28, 2007, 04:49:36 AM
Yup, as much as I was initially turned off by the over the top gangsta theme of Saints Row, once I played the full game I really started to love it and it became one of my most played 360 games.  In addition to the decent storyline stuff there was also a good variety and amount of side missions to keep me busy. 

Having said that, I also have a certain affinity for Crackdown with it's build up to super-human abilities and sandbox play.  Lots of fun, but I spent less time overall with it.

Was just browsing the list again and saw this:

1970   Chevrolet   Chevelle SS-454

My dad had a 68 Chevelle SS, what a beautiful car.  I really wish we could get more muscle cars, or an all muscle car mode in Forza.  Give me an Olds 442, Plymouth Cuda, Mercury Cougar, Charger, GTO... would be awesome.  ( a few of these are in, 1 model at least of the GTO and Charger it looks like)

Yeah, it's nice to see some of the muscle cars make it in there, but it's a pretty limited selection considering some of the other filler they have.  I had a '69 GTO Judge so I've always been partial to that model, and the earlier '65 models are iconic of the muscle car era. 

Plus, in games like these it seems like it's never worthwhile to race muscle cars since the game is designed around little modern tuners and supercars.

I don't really buy the idea that Nintendo is intentionally holding back system hardware, but they were why wouldn't they at least have the market full of the necessary peripherals like Wii-motes and Nunchucks?
