9801  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Did you miss any of the MicrosoftCoverage? I have missed a few pieces. on: July 31, 2007, 01:52:00 PM
Too Human isn't cancelled yet, just won't be out until next year.  Which is probably good considering how many other action games are due before Christmas. 
9802  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: End of the 360 Core? on: July 31, 2007, 01:48:01 PM
I would love to see the Core disappear since it was a bad idea to start with, but Microsoft seems pretty committed to it so I doubt it will be fully gone either.  As with all rumors, time will tell.

Thankfully nothing for me this week.

I saw the trailer in front of the Simpsons movie.  It doesn't look good, but at least they weren't all gangsta. 
9805  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Simpsons Movie on: July 30, 2007, 07:47:21 AM
Yeah, I used to be a big Simpsons fan but they've gone seriously downhill the last few years.  Saw the movie tonight and it was pretty good.  Not spectacular, but I was satisfied.

9807  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Iron Man at Comic-Con - Footage = Awesome on: July 30, 2007, 01:41:07 AM
Looks pretty good.  Not as exciting as the new Batman, but a decent comic movie (which is getting rarer by the day). 
9808  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Awesome Lord of the Rings:Extended Edition Deal on: July 30, 2007, 01:27:36 AM
At either price that is an excellent deal!  I never did get around to buying the Return of the King Extended Edition, so I think the time is now.  Although I'm sure they will be coming out with some sort of  HD uber-version at Christmas or something, I don't have an HD player so they can screw off (for now).

Quote from: Tebunker on July 29, 2007, 02:34:29 PM

Godfather 3 would've been okay if they cut out Andy Garcia and Scorseze's(sp?) daughter... It still didn't do the first two movies any justice.

I would definitely be on a game for the second movie, especially on the Wii.

Coppola's daughter...and yeah, those two were really not worthy to be in that movie.  She is one of the worst actresses I've seen in a big budget movie.
9810  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata question on: July 30, 2007, 01:02:51 AM
Maybe it gets easier the more you play, but I thought I had read in some impressions here that said it only gets more chaotic as time goes on.  I played for an hour or so and I had probably 20 pinatas in that little square of land (forgive my names, but I had worms, mice, birds, butterflies, a snake, toad, bunny...).  It just felt like I was being pulled in 10 directions at once and there was constant new stuff popping up and it wasn't letting me experiment and set things up the way I wanted.  I can't imagine trying to handle all of that with an area that is many times larger.
9811  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Stranglehold...which are you getting? on: July 29, 2007, 12:25:41 PM
I think the PS3 version is the only one that is coming a little later, with the PC and 360 versions still coming out at the end of August.
9812  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Viva Pinata question on: July 29, 2007, 08:28:31 AM
Ok, so I've had the Viva Pinata demo downloaded and just sitting on my 360's hard drive since it first came out but only got around to trying it out tonight. 

My question: in the full game is there any way to slow the game down or something?  As I was playing I was getting new pinatas and alerts and tips every few seconds and it was just madness.  I really enjoyed what I was playing but I'd like to be able to take a much more leisurely approach to tending my garden and planning things out. 
9813  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Stranglehold...which are you getting? on: July 28, 2007, 06:42:31 AM
I believe it's on the Collector's Edition of the PS3 version that comes with Hard Boiled on Blu-Ray.

Since I don't have a PS3 yet and my PC is outdated, I am buying the 360 version.  In fact I just preordered it and saved $15 from that link in the Steals and Deals thread.

Woohoo!  That should fit perfectly!

9816  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Beowulf trailer / info on: July 27, 2007, 03:12:47 PM
I love me some Vikings and melee combat.  If it turns out half decent I will have to rent it at the very least. 

Also, I want Rune 2. 
9817  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil 5 trailer on: July 27, 2007, 03:03:13 PM
Also available on XBox Live and the PS Network today I believe.

Not really my kind of music, but I voted for them anyway.  Wish them luck!
9819  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Simpsons Movie on: July 27, 2007, 02:55:25 PM
I might go to a late show on Sunday night since crowds are usually thin by then and I don't work until late on Monday.  I agree that I would have been much more excited about this 10 years ago, but for some reason the previews I've seen give me a little faith.

Just looking at the 40+ titles that Im interested in this this holiday season (and I'm sure I've missed some), it is going to be one unholy expensive holiday season!!

Aug: Stranglehold, BioShock, Lair, Stuntman: Ignition, Blue Dragon

Sept: BlackSite: Area 51, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Medal of Honor: Airborne, World in Conflict, The Club, Coded Arms, Heavenly Sword, Skate, Halo 3

Oct: Jericho, Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa, Universe at War: Earth Assault, Fury, Half-Life 2 Orange Box, Age of Conan, Hellgate London, The Witcher, The Simpsons, Interstellar Marines, Grand Theft Auto 4, Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, Guitar Hero III, Viva Pinata: Party Animals, Alone in the Dark

Nov: Gears of War PC, UT 3, Call of Duty 4, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, Empire Earth III, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, Crysis, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, Haze, Brother's in Arms: Hell's Highway, Left 4 Dead, Rock Band, Assassin's Creed, Army of Two, TimeShift, Mass Effect

I'm sure I won't buy half of those, but with rentals I will likely eventually try the rest out (and possibly more). 
9821  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Indy 4 Just Hooked Me on: July 27, 2007, 10:45:07 AM
I'm sure I will see it and probably enjoy it, but I can't say that those pictures did much for me. 
9822  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: You MUST rofl at this on: July 27, 2007, 06:28:47 AM
That's what I'm saying.  If, like in this game, you base the competition on something where the contestants really have nothing to win or lose, then they are free to act goofy and just have a good time.  If it is a chance for a nobody's 15 minutes of fame and several thousand dollars, then it changes the players' outlooks and actions.

Hooray!

Too bad there isn't some sort of way that we could work on this thread as a community, wiki style.  But you know that wouldn't end well. 
9824  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: You MUST rofl at this on: July 27, 2007, 12:15:20 AM
Well that makes a huge difference, obviously.  In a normal American gameshow it would be an average Joe getting his one and probably only shot to be on a gameshow and possibly win thousands of dollars.  Given that situation most people would want to do the best they could, I think.

I have upload speed envy.  biggrin

when you convert it from Canadian it only comes out to 25 kb/sec....  icon_wink

Actually, the Canadian dollar is worth almost 96 cents to the American dollar these days.  For shame.

I heard that in this reboot of the franchise, they're making Spock a street smart hip hopper.

If they are smart, they will cross-promote it with the new Alvin and the Chipmunks.  That would be rap-tacular!

I'm still waiting to hear if internet multiplay will be cross-platform.  If not, I might take a pass.

Do you really think there will ever be a game that will be cross console online?

Well, I'll give it a try.  Hopefully Stranglehold turns out to be as good as it looks!
9830  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sam & Max Season 2! on: July 25, 2007, 11:11:50 PM
I got an email that they were shipping out my Season 1 DVD a while ago but have yet to see it. 
EDIT: I just got my Season 1 DVD in the mail today!  I never played the last couple episodes so it will be fun to finish it up and check out all the extra videos and stuff. 

I think they really hit their stride after a couple episodes so it will be great to see where they head with Season 2. 
9831  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sony just cant keep their mouth shut on: July 25, 2007, 02:07:52 PM
I read that article on Gamasutra last night and while I think that comment is wrong if applied to Microsoft's Live Arcade, I don't see it as being too inflamatory.  Microsoft has released a lot of ports from PC and old arcade games, Mad Tracks being one of them.  Overall I thought in the interview Dille was pretty honest about what they have accomplished and the fact that they have a ways to go. 
9832  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Now I have to upgrade my comp...no longer a question on: July 25, 2007, 07:07:35 AM
I'm not sure 300w is going to be enough power for any modern video card. 

I've been running AMD for quite a while, too, but they have recently lagged a bit behind Intel.  Intel also had those major price cuts this last week so it doesn't hurt to check the prices on a comparable system.

I'm not sure why they all didn't just dive through instead of going into those goofy poses, though.  Sure, it's funnier this way but you can see they "cheat" a couple times, so why not all the time?

For me, anything "in or from space" or time travel is Sci Fi and anything dealing with swords, magic and/or monsters is Fantasy.

Science Fiction
Star Wars
Star Trek
War of the Worlds
Dr. Who
Mass Effect
Flash Gordon
Buck Rogers
Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Fantasy
The Dragonlance Chronicles
Lord of the Rings
Land of the Lost
The Princess Bride
Harry Potter
Godzilla
CHARMED
Conan

To name a brief few.


Godzilla is not fantasy!  It was the freaking radiation from freaking atomic bombs!  How much more scientific can you get?

GODZILLA WILL STOMP YOU!

I just don't really see him as The Price is Right kind of guy.  He already hosted the remake of Whose Line Is It Anyway? and I didn't think he did that great of a job on it.  Maybe he could take over the Family Feud or something.

What has always amazed me most about the series is how much a child's reading skills improve once they start playing. IMO Nintendo should be recognized and praised by educators for this.

y'know, all praise to harry potter & all, but i've never read anything about how much nintendo games have encouraged & continue to encourage kids to read - one more thing the japanese seem to 'get' that our culture doesn't. if you can make it enjoyable, kids will learn...

Too bad they have finally discovered the wonders of voice recording with the new Metroid.  slywink
