10081  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's May. What Are the Best Games You've Played So Far This Year (All Platfo on: May 14, 2007, 01:02:20 PM
360:  Guitar Hero 2.  Leaderboards add a whole 'nother dimension to the game.  Catan would be second, and unfortunately there's really nothing else I've enjoyed on it so far.  Got a case of buyers remorse right now, at least until Mass Effect and/or Blue Dragon come out.  frown

DS/GBA:  Final Fantasy VI, with Puzzle Quest a very close runner up.

PC:  Dreamfall.  Pretty easy decision, as it's one of the best games I've played on any platform in a long, long time.  The Sam & Max games would be second.

PS2:  God of War 2

A couple games of Catan yesterday morning, and about 1/2 hour of Guitar Hero 2 on Saturday.  Spent most of the weekend trying to fix my sprinkler system and watching the NBA playoffs.  It was probably the least gaming I've done on a weekend in months.

1. Puzzle Quest is pretty much the only DS game you'll need.  smile  It's the only one I'd consider a "must have" right now.  Also may want to check out some of the excellent GBA RPG's if you haven't already (i.e. Final Fantasy VI, Golden Sun, Tactics Ogre, etc.)

2. Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, if rhythm games are your thing. 

3. I've never bought (or needed) any DS accessories.

4. Best Buy, Circuit City, or Gamestop/EB

Opposite for me.  Sounds very cool, and I'm very interested.

You guys know that the rumored FF7 remake wasn't a remake and is instead Crisis Core, a prequel action-rpg about Zack, the soldier who trained Cloud and once journeyed with Sepheroth (and even met Aeris).

I know about that one, but there have been rumors floating around for years that they will do a full-fledged FFVII remake on either PSP or PS3.  It's probably just wishful thinking by FFVII fanboys like myself, but I've heard it a number of different times.

I could be wrong, but I recall hearing about a FF7 remake on the way for the DS.

I've heard rumblings of a FF7 remake on PSP, but never on DS.
10089  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Atlus USA, how I love you on: May 11, 2007, 01:09:44 PM
I put about 15 hours into Growlanser III.  It was enjoyable, but the ridiculously slow leveling and difficulty curve (there was a massive jump difficulty in difficulty around the 10 hour mark, iirc) prevented me from finishing it.  It was fun enough that I'll definitely give Growlanser V a look.
10090  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 11 May 07 on: May 11, 2007, 01:06:06 PM
Probably not much for me.  Working the part-time job, fixing the sprinkler system, watching the Jazz/Warriors, and other assorted yardwork and housework isn't going to leave much time for gaming.  Might get in some Catan, but that's probably about it.

I am also begrudgingly allowing myself to come to the conclusion that, like Misguided, this is just not my type of racing game.  It's just a bit too sterile for me.  I enjoy the visceral thrills of rally and such.  I will now be trasferring my excitement to DIRT: Colin McRae Off-Road and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage.  And of course PGR4 and Burnout Paradise whenever they arrive. 

I want to be clear I have great respect for people that like Forza and that ilk. I'm not knocking the game in any way shape or form.

Tried the demo last night, and I'm with Misguided & Engine on this one.  While I can certainly appreciate Forza for what it is, it's just not very fun for me.   I much prefer a turbo-charged, fast paced arcade racer, so I'll be waiting for the next Burnout or Flatout.

10093  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How many generations until Gamestop is out of business? on: May 10, 2007, 01:29:27 PM
FWIW, Gamestop now does PC game downloads from their website.  I haven't tried it yet, but I know it's available.

While I'm not opposed to complete digital distribution, I do like to get discs and manuals for my games.  Also keep in mind that not everyone has the means to broadband access for downloads.  I think they'd be excluding a pretty major portion of their user base if they eliminated disc media completely.

sorry, but i don't get this. i sorta understood why they re-did ffiii (to the extent it'd never been released in na), but if they're gonna redo iv (or any of the rest of'm, for that matter), either do'm for the ps3 or don't bother...

really enjoyed the gameboy ffiv, but have no interest in replaying a remade portable version - it was just fine as is/was...


It makes sense in that it would a) require a lot less resources and time (I assume) to recreate the game for DS as opposed to PS3, and b)  the user base for the DS is 10X that of the PS3.  Figure in that anything with the Final Fantasy name on it sells like mad, and a DS retooling makes Squeenix more money in the end.  Plain and simple.

How do you define a "derail"?  While I agree that malicious derails or stalking are uncalled for, nearly everything else I see around here is just basic ebbs and flows of conversation.  I've noticed very few cases where things get so off track that it causes issues, but maybe I'm just blind to it.  Some people are smart-asses, some people are serious, some people have good points, some don't, and some just like to goof around.  I guess I just don't see how it's an issue.

Also keep in mind that sometimes things are said which are applicable to the discussion in the poster's mind, but maybe not in someone else's.    I'd hate to see us start editing or deleting posts simply because one person feels a particular comment wasn't relevant enough to the original topic.   That would cause far more of a problem than the occasional topic derailing, imo.

CVG's latest 'new Blizzard game' story states that the game will be a Starcraft MMO:

The long-rumoured new instalment of Blizzard's massive StarCraft series is set to be unveiled later this month - and it's another massively-multiplayer online game in the style of World of Warcraft, CVG can reveal.

And my interest in yet another franchise goes straight down the toilet.   icon_cry

I'm sure it's inevitable, but it will be a sad, sad day when they announce the next Diablo game will be an MMO as well.  I guess the few of us that hate MMO's are simply out of luck.

Pretty light gaming weekend for me.  Tried to hook up with the GT crew for Catan on Friday with no luck.  Ended up playing a few games against the AI instead.  Did manage to get in a couple random Catan games on Saturday, but lost them both.  I'm 0-3 so far in MP games.  frown

Also put a few hours into FF Tactics Advance yesterday morning (yes, this is a recurring theme), as well as restarting Final Fantasy VII for the 4th time.  I know it might be the nostalgia talking, but FFVII pretty much defines the perfect game for me.  Even after 10 years ( eek), it still brings a smile to my face every time I boot it up.

There's a lot of Bush supporters in my extremely conservative neighborhood.  They basically believe that as long as Dubya is doing things "for God", then anything he does is A-OK.  Pretty scary, really.

It's not like these people are some sort of backwoods yokels either.  Most of them are extremely intelligent, successful individuals.   I just don't get it.

I really like Gametap as well.  My $40 1-year subscription has been one of my better gaming investments.  Hell, it's worth it just for the Sam & Max games alone.  smile

They'll occasionally go through some dry spells, but there's usually at least 1-2 new games I week that end up playing.

Just curious. Where did you get a $40.00 1 year subscription. For that price, I think I would try it out. Heck that is less than the cost of one new game.

Sorry, it was $60, not $40.  Back in October, they did a 50% off special which came out to be $5 a month.  It was a complete no-brainer at that price, and I'll definitely re-up again next year.

New tidbit about the pending 80s edition at 1UP.com today:

http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3159220

So... does this mean that the songs are going to be available on XBL for one lump sum of $39 as an expansion?

If so, why the overcharge of the original GH1 packs? If not, how do they try to justify a simultaneous new release (with zero overhead) at a higher price than it's retail counterpart?

Yep, they've created quite the little mess for themselves.  It'll be interesting to see what they do.

On a side note, I'm a little surprised that there's been no info about what songs will be in the 80's pack.  We knew months in advance who was showing up for GHII, but I haven't heard a peep about this version yet.
