Well, I know what I won't be playing this weekend: anything on my broken 360.

I think I'm going to test my moral flexability and pick up a PSP at Walmart with the intent of returning it when the Slim comes out.

Yeah, they can call me when they get some real screenshots.  You know, of gameplay.

I think the reason you don't see much voice acting on the DS isn't necessarily the lack of production values, but more because it is still a cartridge-based medium so space is pretty limited compared to most disc-based stuff and is more expensive to make.  Although now I believe they can support up to 256 MB carts, usually if they can fit the game on a smaller one then it saves them money in manufacturing.  I also read that the larger carts have slower transfer speeds than the more normal sized 64MB ones, but I'm sure it still has to be miles better than UMD's transfer speeds. 
9525  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Two Worlds. anyone on board? on: August 17, 2007, 06:49:27 AM
I was mildly interested in it, but I don't think I'd pick it up until well after the reviews start rolling in.

What the hell is batracer?  Is that like where you get miniaturized and have to ride on the backs of bats as they swoop crazily through the night, trying to manoeuver them through a race course?

Honestly I think all you have to do to not have the tray icon now is right-click and hit Exit, and it won't load up anymore.  At least that's what I just did and it worked (even after reboot).

9530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MS 360 Repair website on: August 16, 2007, 02:44:55 AM
Well, I guess it was my turn to eat shit and die.  My 360 locked up after a couple minutes of the Katamari Damacy demo.  I figured not a big deal, that can happen with a demo, right?  Upon reboot it locked up at the 360 logo a couple times and then the last time it gave me the Red Rings of Death.  I haven't even gotten to try out the Bioshock demo!

The kicker is that when I try to use their new Service website it doesn't show my console as being registered, even though I did that when I bought it.  So of course I should just be able to add the serial number as a new device, right?  Wrong.  It gives me an error and says I have to call their Customer Support line.  The whole reason I went online was so I could avoid talking to those useless, unintelligible bastards.  Curses!   disgust

As I mentioned in that other PSP Slim thread, they also have the ice-silver Daxter Pack and white Star Wars Pack for preorder. 

According to the Toys R Us preorder page, the Daxter Pack comes with a 1GB memory stick, a Family Guy video pack and Daxter.  The Star Wars pack only comes with the new Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron game. 
9532  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: HDTV recommendations for console gaming on: August 15, 2007, 09:54:38 AM
I don't keep up with things too much, but aren't regular DVDs at 480p?  Wouldn't it have been a better test to just put in HD-DVDs and check results at 720p vs 1080p?  I'm not saying there is a huge difference, but having the same source could easily change the results.

I'm curious, if you're only putting on deodorant, why not just use cologne or something that is bound to smell better than Speed Stick? 

Okay, you don't understand what deodorant does.

It doesn't just cover up the smell, it prevents the smell.  Cologne doesn't do that.  You can still have bad BO w/ cologne.  With deodorant you might be sweaty, but still not stinky.

Kratz knows of what he speaks.

One time (and only one time), I ran out of deodorant. I used cologne to try to mask the lack of deodorant.

I made an early lunch-time run to the store for a stick of deodorant that day. icon_wink

Well, I have to admit that the last time I used regular deodorant without antipersperant was back in the awkward teenage years of overflowing hormones and uncontrollable sweating (as well as other things).  I may have to give it a try again next time I buy a stick.  Maybe even some of wonderpug's Tom's of Maine stuff.  smile

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames - Mitch demands I buy this title.  *shrug*  Looks like an improved Just Cause.

Bite your tongue,  heathen.  I loved Mercenaries, and couldn't stand Just Cause at all.  I hope it's more an improved mercenaries than an improved Just Cause....because anything would be an improvement over that steaming pile...

Educate me.  Looks like free-form, hijack anything, go anywhere, blow anything up, help the factions gameplay.  Am I missing something?

Since Just Cause was an imitation of Mercenaries 1, I don't think so.

Nope, you got the basic elements right, but as you well know, the devil is in the details.  I mean crap...that list there could almost describe GTA or Saints Row, or any free-form game.

Mercenaries got those details right...Just Cause didn't.  It was just a pale imitation, a lost cause.

besides, in Mercs 2 you get to whack Venezuelans and help prepare for our eventual invasion!!!!

I enjoyed both Mercs 1 and Just cause for what they were, and I think Mercenaries 2 will probably be damn well awesome. 

My GOTY so far:
Crackdown or DiRT

GOTY played but not released in 2007:
hmm, I'll have to think about that

Anticipated GOTY material (or what I'm excited about):
Mercenaries 2
Halo 3
some others that may or may not work out (Aassassin's Creed, Army of Two, etc)

9539  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Slim hands on video on: August 13, 2007, 07:01:44 AM
I did some looking around and a quote from Sony says for the new versions: "The Daxter PSP Pack will be available September 10th, the Star Wars PSP pack will be available on October 9.  The core PSP will be available in September, I don't have a hard date yet." 

Amazon is showing preorders for the PSP 2000 available on September 10th for the $169 core price and the Daxter or Star Wars packs at $199, so that is good news.  Toys R Us shows the Daxter pack coming with Daxter (obviously), a 1GB memory stick, and Family Guy: The Freakin' Sweet Collection video with the ice silver PSP. 

In other news I picked up my first PSP game today (MX vs ATV On the Edge for $11 at CC) so I think I will have to actually buy a PSP now.  slywink

I just noticed the Filefront link goes to Fileshack.

Yeah, but if you copy his text you can get to the right place. 

I tried the demo out for a few minutes, and what I saw wasn't too bad.  Some of the interface elements were a bit different than the standards, so that would take a little while to get used to.  I had to turn the textures down to medium but it ran pretty decent on my aging rig.

Well, Rockstar North (developers of GTA) used to be DMA Designs, and Take Two changed Barking Dog Studios to Rockstar Vancouver and Angel Studios to Rockstar San Diego a couple years ago. 

But I still think the 2K name is much worse than Irrational.

It's not like they replace your unit with a brand new one, they send you a refurbished one and they have plenty of older ones of those around I'm guessing.
9552  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: That One Toy on: August 10, 2007, 02:32:00 PM
I think the big ones for me were that G.I. Joe aircraft carrier, one of the Transformers group-bots (like the Constructicons) and any kind of off-road RC car.  I would have killed for an RC car.  Maybe that's why I love playing driving games so much.

I thought Conviction had been announced as a 360 exclusive for a long time, like last year.  Whatever reason they give it's not likely the full story, though I doubt it's just because they are lazy.

I'm just suspect of StarShifter's opinion because his main point in every post about the game is that you play a hot woman witch, as if that is something that could take a mediocre game and make it awesome.

I've never seen the point in deodorant without antipersperant, but maybe that's just me. 
9560  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: stranglehold demo now on marketplace on: August 09, 2007, 09:45:23 AM
I enjoyed the demo and I think I would enjoy the full game, but I'm not super excited about it.  For the most part it felt like an enhanced Max Payne.  That's not a bad thing, but it wasn't all that new other than the awesome amounts of destruction. 

I agree that the graphics are just a bit off.  I also think that during "Tequila Time" it was harder to spot enemies than in full color and wished they had some sort of highlight or outline in that mode. 

Right now I'm on the fence whether to keep or cancel my $50 shipped preorder.
