9401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Gamestop no longer offering warranties on 360 consoles! on: October 27, 2007, 08:57:51 PM
I think it's pretty well accepted by everyone that the failure rates are far above normal for the 360.  When Microsoft has to come out and say that they're not happy with the failure rates and that they are extending the warranty to 3 years and taking a billion dollar hit to cover the repairs...that's a pretty good signal that things aren't going as planned.

It's just nice to see that the "Jewish Singles" rate higher than "PC Games".  biggrin
9403  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New I Am Legend Trailer on: October 27, 2007, 08:31:45 PM
That version makes my Quicktime break, but I found a copy elsewhere.  I'd say that this trailer looks better than the last teaser.  I am skeptical but I think it may be a decent movie even if it doesn't quite follow the book. 

Heh, I actually just picked up a copy of the book at the library this morning.  Well, it's the Blood Lines book that contains the original I Am Legend novel(la), Matheson's original script for a movie version and lots of other stuff including interviews with Matheson in which he comments on the previous movie adaptations ("They're terrible."). 

The funny thing is that this book is actually a numbered, signed limited edition hardcover #399 of 500.  Not sure why the library has that version, but it's cool.

I wouldn't call over a year and a half "somewhat fresh".  November '04 to June '06.  That's about the time it normally takes for a full sequel to come out in many cases. 
9405  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command on: October 27, 2007, 04:53:23 PM
I finally got to try the demo and that was pretty damn fun!  I love the destruction and I think this could only get better once you can do more weapon and squad customization.  I think 15 missions of that length (or a little longer) wouldn't be bad at all and this has shot up my list of games to buy. 

My main issues were the same that everyone else had: namely that the enemy's turn has all their units acting at once and the camera does not move to the action on the battlefield.  That helps to keep the pace up, but it would be nice to have the option for the enemy to take it's turns one at a time. 

I also had several turns where there were no visible enemies and none moving on the tactical map.  I basically had to walk around and destroy the outer walls to get them to appear and start moving towards the wall.
9406  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Music for warning - suggestions please! on: October 27, 2007, 03:04:53 PM
First off, I think it's only appropriate for you to at least list a few of your favorite bands so we can get an idea of your taste.  Tongue

Upon receipt of my Zune I've also been ripping and downloading a bunch of music both new suggestions from friends and some of my own stuff.  Lately I've been listening to Spoon, Built to Spill, The Futureheads, M. Ward, The Black Keys, Califone, The Good, The Bad & The Queen (Damon Albarn from Blur and Gorillaz), Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros, DeVotchKa, The National, Wolf Parade, and lots of other stuff.

D'oh!  You guys are totally right.  I can't believe I forgot that.  Now I feel like a moron.   disgust

In my defense, I did have a lot of trouble getting my system to detect it and keep a connection with that first cable I had, so when this happened I just assumed there was something goofy. 
9408  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orange Box [360] - Thoughts and Impressions please. on: October 27, 2007, 06:32:54 AM
I have yet to finish Episode 2, but those were about my exact same thoughts when I played Episode 1 and I was really hoping this second one would introduce some fresh elements like they talked about. 
9409  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command on: October 27, 2007, 06:29:52 AM
Does anybody else ever have problems with their PSP not getting recognized when you hook it up via USB?  I've tried hooking it up before powering on and after and nothing ever pops up now.  This happened when I first got my PSP and had a cheap USB data/power splitter cable so I replaced that and it worked fine, but now my regular USB cable is giving me the same results.  Is there a way to force Windows to poll for USB devices?  (maybe I should start my own thread...)
9410  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA?] Goo on: October 27, 2007, 06:24:38 AM
I think Goo looks like it could be really fun as long as it doesn't get frustrating to control.  I'm not sure I really saw the different colors acting too distinctly different, but whatever.

Weren't we discussing this same thing like 6 months ago?  1080i/720p HD-DVD players at Wal-Mart for $200...this is very familiar. 

Maybe so - I didn't catch that this pup doesn't do 1080p.  When those players hit at 200 bucks I can see a lot of folks jumpin.

I think maybe we were just talking about the rumor that this was coming for Black Friday or something.  I don't know.  Maybe my memory is just going backwards these days.   icon_confused
9416  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Assasin's Creed. In the shadow of ME? on: October 26, 2007, 11:48:16 AM
I think a lot of us, including me, have seen some less than stellar videos and such from this game and aren't expecting it to be amazing.  I hope that it turns out really well, but I'm skeptical and I'm not willing to buy it before reading reviews to find out. 
9417  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Puzzle Quest for PC - No One Interested? on: October 26, 2007, 11:45:17 AM
There was a topic going on it a week ago or so, over here: http://www.gamingtrend.com/forums/index.php/topic,22634.0.html

Personally, I ended up downloading it from XBox Live Arcade for some reason.

Earth Defense Force is a good one for 2 players as long as you don't mind the B-movie production values.
Also, Dynasty Warriors Gundam.

You can probably still download a bunch of stuff for Kameo...
I think some of the add-ons add/improve co-op play.

I have to agree that EDF2017 was a really fun game to play even though it is totally not top quality.  It took the B-movie vibe and ran with it, so much that I was finished the game on two difficulty levels and half-way through a third.  I hardly finish any games I play, so that says something.  Just don't expect it to be a AAA game or anything close and you can have fun with it.

I'll be the first, but certainly not the last, to say that I wasn't even taken in by your ruse.  When the day finally comes, I'm sure they will be screaming it from the heavens.

Quote from: EddieA on October 24, 2007, 11:06:45 PM

I just played most of the good-sized (15 levels) demo, and it was a lot of fun.  The style is nicely done, and it seems to combine several gameplay styles well.  There seems to be some confusion about how many levels you get, though.  The demo says there are 220 levels, but the XBox.com page says "120 levels with more downloadable".  Also, someone at GameFAQs posted that if you highlight on of the levels in Situations 13-22, it gives a message about downloading additional puzzle packs.

Ah, you have to love squeezing the consumer for everything they're worth.  I'm sure that's a negative way to look at it (they probably like to say "We're giving them the choice whether they want the extra levels, see!"), but it kind of burns me that they keep doing this to games which were released "whole" previously.  I know it certainly affects my decision not to purchase games that I know are going to just screw me by giving me only half the content up front.

I don't think it would be Naruto either since publications are already reviewing it.

I believe they said that it was games that were not announced, one of which was in an established series and three which were not.

9425  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBox 360 for Dummies on: October 26, 2007, 03:04:07 AM
If you want it vertical, you can actually get one of those little vertical stands that has fans in it.  I'm not talking about that cooler that plugs into the back of the unit, just go to Amazon and type in "Xbox 360 fan stand" and it should show you a couple different models.

I'd prefer to always have a disc-tray media player sitting flat, but some people don't have the room for that.

9428  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero 3 and Rock Band Guitars NOT compatible! on: October 26, 2007, 02:36:01 AM
They're probably saying that because if you could just use the Rock Band guitar (which you have to buy if you want the game this year) then you would just wait and buy the non-bundled version of Guitar Hero 3.  At least that's what I would do if I planned on buying those games.

I don't understand why you would ever buy an XBLA game without trying the demo.  It's not like you have to download it a second time if you decide to buy it.

Following the link back from one of your pictures (going here, they have a second mugshot that looks closer in color and quality to the first one.  They're both labeled as Mugshot, though. Weird.

I'd guess the bottom one since it says Mugshot next to it.  I didn't see any pictures in that link, though.
