well i know the first trailer goes up tonight...but what happens on the 19th?

They're counting down to the 19th because that's my birthday, bitches!   icon_biggrin  Maybe they are remaking GTA2 for the DS or it's coming to Live Arcade or one of those things.

And what happens if we buy the 120 gb version? How will we transfer our data?

It comes with a transfer cable to send your data to the larger drive.

Yeah, that crap pisses me off.  Almost as much as the DVDs that force you to watch the previews.  I can understand that for a rental, but to not allow me to just skip to the menu on something I bought?  Up yours, Hollywood!

Not to mention that sometimes crosswords require obscure knowledge of things which you have no interest in which means that if you don't know it your chances of figuring it out are very slim, whereas everybody can count and add small numbers with ease.

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.

9330  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.

I agree that AdAware and SpyBot S&D are great, and I would add a-squared to that list also since it often catches some things that the others miss (they have a free version available, too, and it's updated nearly daily).

I tried this one out a couple months ago and about the best part was the item names and descriptions.  Nice to see some originality in there. 

It kept me entertained for a few free hours, but it wasn't polished enough for me to keep going back. 
9334  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lego Batman Coming on: March 28, 2007, 01:18:19 AM
This could be pretty cool, especially if they implement some decent fighting and some of "those wonderful toys". 

I also would love to see a GameCube version so that I could send my nephew my old GC and this game since he is a huge Batman fan but my sister won't buy them any gaming systems.   icon_biggrin

Quote from: Arkon on March 27, 2007, 05:12:59 PM

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 didn't bother to read half of your back-and-forth bickering posts, so pardon me if this was already mentioned. 

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?

Thanks, Tebunker.  I don't know why, but it's still not showing up on the main page or on the reviews page.  Even when I search for the game, I don't see a review.  Bizarre.

I even erased all my IGN cookies.

It's in the big picture frame on the Wii front page for me.

Hmm, I was able to create the group but somehow cannot join the ground - very strange.

Well, either way, I've had my PS3 powered-on pretty much non-stop this whole weekend and when I wasn't playing it, I was folding biggrin

I don't think you get officially added to the team until you complete one work unit.  I added myself to the team but since it's just going in the background when my PC is on it probably won't finish for a couple days.

I have gotten some things in the mail which at first look seem to be bills for subscriptions and such, but on the bottom of the page or on the back it will specifically say "This is not a bill."  Obviously it is designed to fool people, but technically I would think it's legal.

Mine is for sale now if anyone is interested. I played it for about an hour more and it's just not moving me like I thought it would. Maybe it's a bit TOO old school feeling, but if anyone wants a 2 hr played mint condition EDF, buy mine.

Sorry to hear that, man.  Obviously the game is very dumb run-n-gun type gameplay, so if you're not into blowing up lots of giant bugs, robots and stuff it doesn't have much else to it. 

I'm loving it despite it's flaws. 

I'm up to level 28 finished in both Easy and Normal with a few of the early ones finished in Hard mode.  So far I have 57 weapon variations unlocked.  Some of them are nearly useless (a welding torch?  WTF?) but some are cool and useful.  All the variations of the standard ones allow you to play how you like by balancing accuracy, refire rate, damage, etc. 

I just hope this one sells enough to justify a sequel which allows them to improve on this formula.

as for the video,what was the grey lead coming out of his wii-mote?,and also,i think near the end i spotted his Wii had a grey cable up at the top where the gamecube controllers usually go

I'm not sure, but it may have something to do with the debug developer's kit.

Watching the video the big thing I noticed is that even as he was demonstrating how easy it was throw a web with a "flick of the wrist, press the button" he failed to shoot a web the last time and fell to the ground then jumped.  This sort of inconsistent control is quickly becoming my pet peeve with Wii games and when I'm playing it tends to piss me off something fierce.

But this thing has been going on for years hasn't it?  Are you telling me that millions of computer years worth of calculations has already been surpassed by a few months of a few thousand PS3's doing calculations?

It isn't measuring the total amount of data that has been crunched by each OS/platform, but the number of calculations that are being made per second.
9352  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: EarthDefenseForce 2017 has the lamest achievements on: March 25, 2007, 05:44:39 PM
Yeah, they are a really weak and just another symptom of the overall budget production.  And it's unfortunate, because I think they could have made some pretty original ones.

Not to mention that beating all of the levels on Hardest and Inferno is going to be extremely difficult.

I don't have problems buying a new game From EB/GameStop, you simply just ask them for one of the sealed copies they have in the case behind the desk.  It's easy enough to see if the manufacturer's seal is still intact.  If all they have left is the display copy then I have no problem going somewhere else and telling them why.

I just finished reading A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon and enjoyed it.  Some parts could have been a bit better, but overall it was an enjoyable look at a chaotic, dysfunctional English family. 

I'm about half way through Counter-Clock World by Philip K. Dick and I have mixed feelings about it.  I think the story itself has some good potential but it is based on such implausible, problematic fake science that it's hard to take it too seriously.

The site is owned by Sony, so I'm sure it's legit.  I doubt they would make a big show of God of War 3 so soon after 2 just launched, it's likely to be about the PSP title, although it has the PS2 logo on there.  Odd stuff.

"Bob Porter: I looked into it more deeply and I found that apparently what happened is that he was laid off five years ago and no one ever told him about it; but through some kind of glitch in the payroll department, he still gets a paycheck.
Bob Slydell: So we just went ahead and fixed the glitch.
Bill Lumbergh: Great.
Dom Portwood: So, uh, Milton has been let go?
Bob Slydell: Well, just a second there, professor. We, uh, we fixed the *glitch*. So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore, so it'll just work itself out naturally.
Bob Porter: We always like to avoid confrontation, whenever possible. Problem is solved from your end. "

I can't say that I've ever had a magazine keep coming after I cancelled it, but I guess if you really don't want to keep receiving it you will have to write or call them.  Usually inside they have an 800 number listed on the page with the publication small type.

Are the levels locked to start? If so, can you unlock them by playing coop or do you have to play 1p first?

The levels unlock one at a time as you beat them in any difficulty.  Unfortunately I don't have a second controller and I can't completely start a co-op game without one, so I'm not sure about that.  From what it looks like you can either start a separate co-op campaign save where you guys unlock them as you go or you can use your single player load and select levels you have unlocked there (and unlock more). 

There is also a Battle Mode, which I think is just a bit of 2 player deathmatch.

One bit if an annoyance that I just found out this morning is that the game does not automatically save your progress as you complete missions.  So I am back to the only save I made, having only completed one mission on one difficulty.  frown  Save your games, kids!
