So is the original psychonauts BC for 360 yet? If not, I wouldn't mind a WiiPort. I've not played much of it.

Yes indeedy. 
9322  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Psychonauts Game?!? on: October 23, 2007, 03:37:23 PM
As was said above, this will probably turn out to be a Wii port of the original game, and in that case I reserve the right to revoke my extreme excitement and replace it with "screw that". 
9323  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Need for Speed ProStreet demo on: October 23, 2007, 03:31:08 PM
The demo for NFS: ProStreet is now available on XBox Live Marketplace (as is the Guitar Hero 3 demo, but we'll save that for another thread).  I have no idea how this one is going to be, but I hope it controls better than the Carbon demo did.  Not that I'm in dire need of another racing game with the 10 other ones that have just been released.  Downloading it now.

Oh, I thought you meant the Primus song from GH2, not Primus covering Devil Went Down to Georgia.  Crossed wires.

I have never understood the point of extra pillows you just have to throw on the floor to actually use the bed.  It's just weird.

Are you talking about just registering his product for a regular warranty, or did he send in payment for the extended warranty?

Bah! Screw you guys. "The Devil went down to Georgia" is a classic and I am going to have to check out this cover!  Tongue

just to warn you they butcher the classic even worse than the Primus cover.

Umm, if you're talking about John the Fisherman, that was actually Primus and not a cover band.

9330  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 owners - What storage do you have? on: October 23, 2007, 01:13:52 PM
The 120 GB version is called the Elite, not Pro.  Pro is generally regarded as the same as Premium as far as I know
9331  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Arcade 360 officially announced on: October 23, 2007, 08:20:40 AM
It's not really a whole new beast, it's just a Core with a bundled memory card that has some games on it.  Kind of like the Premium holiday pack with 2 games, except I'd expect this one to continue on after the holidays.

Congrats on the purchase.. anyone know how to tell which models have the newer hardware inside?

It will say HDMI on the side of the package, and it's assumed that any of the Premiums that have HDMI also contain the new heatsinks and such. 
9333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Army of Two delayed on: October 23, 2007, 08:15:58 AM
Well, we now have one less game to suck up our money before the holidays.  It was announced that Army of Two has been delayed until Q1 2008.  There is a little Q&A over at 1Up where it's mentioned that 1Up already had review copies by the time this was announced, which is a little odd.  They must have gotten some negative reactions, or mediocre at least. 

Hopefully another 4 months will help them balance it out and polish it as much as is needed.

9335  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Zack and Wiki review from IGN on: October 23, 2007, 05:31:01 AM
I don't know if IGN even had many (or any) ad-buys from Zack and Wiki, I just know they have been trying to get a campaign going for people to buy the game and support it.  It's hard to trust McIGN with anything, but I think it was just some honest fans of the game and it's style that want to see it get a sequel.

9337  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Through the Portal (Warning: Spoilers) on: October 23, 2007, 05:01:29 AM
That level 17 was one of the levels that I hated.  Part of the problem is that the portals are just a bit too skinny so occasionally I would clip the side when I was falling back down.  The other problem was that it changed where I was aiming so as soon as you pop out of the other portal you are totally disoriented and have to quickly try to whip around and aim at the nex platform before you are too low.  A real pain in the ass and not fun at all. 
9338  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Updated PS3/360 exclusives list ? on: October 23, 2007, 12:40:11 AM
That's one of the things Microsoft actually did right.  They made achievements a standard that every game had to have from the start.  It's been an integral part of the experience since day one, and you know any game on the platform supports them.
9339  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Can we just get an Xbox 360 hardware sticky thread? on: October 22, 2007, 02:43:31 PM
I'm not sure it's necessary to merge all of the different topics, as some of them became discussions unto their own.   
9340  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: 30 GB Zune now $79 brown only on: October 22, 2007, 01:55:12 PM
Honestly, if the brown had been available a few weeks ago when I ordered mine (it was only the black one that week) I would have gotten it at $99.  I don't think brown's so bad, and for $79 now it's one hell of a steal.
9341  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/22) on: October 22, 2007, 01:53:42 PM
I will probably put Zack and Wiki on my gift list since I'm still overwhelmed as it is but it seems like such a neat classic adventure game.  I'd also like to give Conan a rent sometime. 
9342  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Updated PS3/360 exclusives list ? on: October 22, 2007, 10:28:55 AM

Well, Mobygames does have a pretty extensive collection of pictures of old box art and packaging (as well as full credits, etc).  You can even submit additional photos of your own.

I was just looking at the weekly software sales list over at VGChartz (can also sort by any single platform) and their data shows that Blue Dragon has sold over 145k and Eternal Sonata is up to 86k.  They also show Jeane D'arc as 37k.  

Their data may not be exact, but if anything I would think it's a bit under reported.  
9345  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3]MGS4 maxed out on Blu-Ray on: October 21, 2007, 02:17:21 PM
Maybe they could make a version with actual gameplay and forgo all the worthless video. 
9346  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: H-Gate London Demo.....Can we talk? on: October 21, 2007, 01:55:39 PM
Well, to be nit-picky, it's not the "game engine" which takes so much space (that's generally a few megs for the binaries, libraries and such), it's the resources that take up 1Gig+.  Textures/materials, sounds, level data, videos, etc; that's what takes up so much of your precious space. 
9347  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Through the Portal (Warning: Spoilers) on: October 21, 2007, 08:16:42 AM
I finally finished Portal tonight.  Unlike some people, I wouldn't say that it's the most spectacular game ever or anything.  It had some really neat elements and some really frustrating things.  Certainly a positive experience but marred by those elements.  Plus, it seems like over half the game is just teaching you how to play.

Depends on who you mean by this forum.  I've been playing PSP games since it launched.

same here smile ... just remembering along the lines of some old topics like this one...

Well, way back then there was much less of a reason to get one.  More good games have come out since then, the price has been dropped and a new version has come out.  These are things that compel people to buy. 

I do have to agree with Misguided, though, and say that so far it doesn't look like there are that many great games on the horizon.  I'm hoping that this will change because of the recent Slim release spiking sales and the shorter development cycle for a portable title.  Thankfully I still have lots of great games from the last two years to catch up on playing. 
9349  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Number 5 on: October 21, 2007, 05:16:17 AM
You've had yours for over a year, Turtle?  Their full warranty covers anything for 1 year, the RRoD is the only part extended to 3 years. 
9350  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo Wars?! Why not... on: October 21, 2007, 05:10:07 AM
Yeah, and they still haven't really given any details on what the Halo project is that they're working with Peter Jackson on.

9354  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: H-Gate London Demo.....Can we talk? on: October 19, 2007, 05:15:51 PM
I tried out the demo and it was kind of impressive in the fact that it ran quite well on my computer, but even with textures and such set to high it didn't look all that great.  Very boxy and the random street corridors and such aren't all that appealing.  It's also a really drab, unappealing environmental aesthetic for the most part. 

I tried out the Blademaster guy and thought that in general it controlled pretty well for attacking, but I don't like how I come to a stop when only attacking once.  And with all of those one-hit loot-balloons you do that a lot. 

Overall I think if I didn't have a lot of other things to play I might pick this up for $40 or so, but I doubt I would ever pay a monthly subscription. 
9355  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBOX 360: 1 Year On on: October 19, 2007, 04:53:39 PM
I'm not sure how you can call Lost Planet "unplayable".  It may not be the best third person shooter ever, but it certainly was playable and had some fun elements.

I got my 360 last year in May or June I think:

Longest streak: 14 days
Play percentage: 35.5%
Largest achievement gain: 2/25/2007 (21)
Largest gamerscore gain: 2/25/2007 (380)

Most Played games:
Saints Row - 20 days
Crackdown - 14 days
Just Cause - 11 days
DiRT - 10 days
Earth Defense Force 2017 - 10 days

I'm guessing most of my games have few days spent with them because I generally play only on the weekends but I play marathon sessions when I start them up. 
9356  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 19/Oct/07 on: October 19, 2007, 04:45:16 PM
I have way too many choices.  I think I'm almost done with Portal, but then I have HL2: Episode 2, Halo 3, FlatOut, Fear, Mythos, Dungeon Runners and I just got the PSP Dungeon Siege game.  Help me, Obi Wan.  You're my only hope!

Really? I have been finding JS pretty unfunny for the most part the last couple of months. The correspondents are the best thing about the Daily Show IMHO. Colbert on the other hand I find hilarious and only getting better with time. Best show on TV for me.

Well, I haven't watched either show regularly for probably 6 months or more, but in general I like Jon Steward more than Colbert.  Not to mention that Colbert's whole "character" is a farce so who/what the hell are you actually voting for?

You know, I have no clue about what PS3s are out and what the pricing is.  Sony has changed shit so much I can't keep things together anymore.


quick version:
new model = $400
former model = $500

original model = rip

Actually, there was the original 20GB = RIP and the NTSC 60GB = RIP both had hardware BC, and then the PAL 60GB = RIP with limited software BC.  Now there is the 80GB with limited software BC and Motorstorm, and the 40GB with Spiderman 3 and no BC.  And that's not getting into the differences in Wi-Fi, number of USB ports or memory card slots.

So that really just proves the point of this topic: the wealthiest of the wealthy have seen huge increases in fortune.  It's also far out of line for what would be considered an average growth, which would point to something abnormal occurring.  One should expect a rising tide should raise all ships, but only the yachts are raising.

I think the anchor ropes on our dinghies are just too short.
