Ooh, I forgot about Burnout 5...I just hope they don't overdo the free-roaming thing and ruin the whole vibe of the game.

Oh, boy, just what we needed.  Another JRPG on the PS2.

I finished up the story in Saints Row and have 89% done for all activities and such.  I likely won't finish the Hitman activities, but the others I might.  What's funny is that even with that much finished I have less than half of the Achievement points you can get.  I suppose a bunch of them are multiplayer, though.  Bastards.

Yeah, the retail price on the PC version is only $20 these days (PS2 and XBox are about the same or $10 more).  Good to hear that it's on Steam, hopefully it will broaden the audience even more.  It's a great game and definitely worth that much.

I really wish they could find some better system than just random numbers for their naming conventions.  How do they go from 800s up to 1900s and now back to 600?  Then you have the MX, GT, GTS, GTX, etc.  How the hell is anyone but a dedicated enthusiast supposed to know which ones are actually better than older models?  The best is when they re-release an older, slower chipset using new naming conventions which basically implies it is faster than the fast chips of the older named chipset.

Watch the woman go from a human being to some weird cartoon/human hybrid, The lack of skin shading, the glowing eyes... it's creepy.

That's Alicia Keys, a beautiful woman to begin with and the touchups on that one just make her skin look like air-brushed plastic or something.  Vida (#2) also looked better in the original.

You get water in your ear every time you shower or go swimming or anything like that.  As long as you aren't shooting a high velocity stream directly in there, natural protections will keep you from damage.  Doctor's often shoot a warm water and hydrogen peroxide solution into ears to clear out wax plugs, and it's often recommended to let warm water flow into your ears during a shower to keep your ears from excessive wax buildup.

No, just like GTA: London was not GTA2, Vice City and San Andreas were not fully numbered sequels.  It's just the way they do it.

I think the point is, shouldn't we be getting a new one this year. And won't it be a 360 title?

Yes and yes, which is why you see GTA4 in my list and others.

The only one that comes to mind is:


(heh, Kobra beat me to it while I was checking out Basewars again)

I was also a huge fan of Basewars on the NES.  You basically played baseball with upgradeable robots and combat during the base-running.

In the short-term I'd have to say Crackdown.  Then Stranglehold, Colin McRae Off-Road and later on GTA4 (hopefully it is a big leap above San Andreas).

Circuit City is having a deal for a 12-month XBox Live membership (comes with 1 extra month, so 13 total) for $39.99, which comes out to about $3 per month.  This is just the membership, no camera or extra whatever.  You can buy it in store or online (or online and pick up locally). 

Sunday and Monday they also have Rainbow Six: Vegas and Splinter Cell: Double Agent for $39.99.

I happened to think Fable had plenty of play-time, but then I'm not one to enjoy 60 hour JRPGs or whatever.  On my recent play through of the game I think I was at about 16 hours and hadn't quite finished it up (that was the time according to the game, I'm sure actual playtime was more because of backtracking and missed saves and such).  That seemed about perfect to me, although there were a couple added quests and things to do because of the Lost Chapters stuff.  I suppose if you just ran through the story and didn't do anything else it might seem too short, but half the fun for me is playing around in the world and doing some extra stuff.

9539  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Planet Receives Lukewarm Reviews on: December 30, 2006, 07:56:44 PM
I can say that the OXM article doesn't even mention that the game is really short, or the length at all.  Because of that and the fact they mention there are 11 bosses to fight, I would guess it is probably standard shooter length (10-15 hours depending on how you play).

The one thing that bummed me out when I read the OXM review was that apparently they didn't make any better use of the grappling hook thing than in the old E3 demo.  I was hoping they would make it more useful so I could relive some of my Bionic Commando fantasies.

I've seen the disappearing car thing a couple times and some other minor things but it hasn't really been a problem.  The song was kind of funny but the video was really boring, since most of it was just showing the same bug over and over.  and over.

Though I suppose there might not be as many people playing these on Live these days.  Both were classics when they came out.  PGR2 is my favorite Xbox title!  And I liked Spinx as well.

I agree with you there, stiffler.  I enjoyed PGR 1&2, Crimson Skies and Sphinx.  I think this kid is a lost cause.  icon_wink
9544  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Impact of next gen game prices... on: December 30, 2006, 04:30:38 AM
I haven't bought too many $60 games at all.  In fact, I think Gears of War is the only one and I kind of regret it since I don't play multi-player.  The other full-price new games I have bought for the 360 (Just Cause, Lego Star Wars 2) have been $50 or less. 
9545  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] New Rally X on: December 30, 2006, 03:54:53 AM
Can't say I've ever heard of Roadblasters, and the last time I played Road Rash it really didn't hold up.  Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super freaking Off-Road, on the other hand rules!  In the arcade it steering wheels for each player (some had up to 4 wheels) like the Super Sprint game, but there were versions for the NES and updated versions with better graphics and all the track packs for the SNES and Genesis.  RC Pro-Am 1 and 2 were also pretty great, but they didn't have nearly as much awesome jumping as Off-Road.

A Yankee Swap with friends has been mostly hijacked by the ladies and become "gender neutral" (read: vacuum cleaners, blankets, toothbrushes instead of DVDs, and games).  But board games are often included there.  I think I might just pick this one up, wrap it and try to take it myself -- looks like a good find!

What's the point of that sort of swap thing when you would rather just buy the game for yourself?  You have 100% chance of walking home with what you want if you don't bother with that.

This might just lead to the perfect upswing in violence so that Bush can announce his plan to send more troops over there after ignoring the advice of generals and the bipartisan council set up to determine a better plan.  That man seems to be the very definition of selective hearing, just waiting until somebody suggests what he already wants and ignoring everything else.

I'm still playing Saints Row and enjoying the heck out of it.  I just have the Westside Rollerz missions left, but I've been trying to finish up some of the activities like Chop Shop, Hitman and Mayhem.  Insurance Fraud was dead simple once I figured out a trick:

James Brown, the legendary Godfather of Soul, has died.  Even if you've never owned one of his albums I think it goes without saying you've heard some of his songs.  He had a long, influential career and his songs have been in numerous movies, television shows and commercials, and even games.

I noticed that you can also buy a GDI or Nod theme for your 360 with each page featuring one of the characters from that side.  Of course they cost 150 points or something, but that's to be expected these days.
