Quote from: mytocles on June 27, 2007, 06:49:05 AM

Was wondering though, about one quote... "Easily the best Pixar film since A Bug's Life, Ratatouille is deliciously delightful, wonderfully sweet and drop-dead gorgeous."

Does anyone think that the last, best Pixar film was "A Bug's Life"? Seems to me, though very good, that just about every one since then has been as good, or better.  icon_confused

Yeah, that's kind of strange.  I think "Bug's Life" is easily the weakest of all the Pixar movies, and it seems strange they would use it as the basis of comparison.

After a couple dry months, their release schedule the last month has been absolutely fantastic.  My 1-year "special" subscription is up in October, and I'll definitely be resubscribing.  There's a ton of old games on there that I never got a chance to play the first time around.   It is absolutely worth the minimal subscription fee.

I'm out on Grim Grimoire - this is a dealbreaker for me (taken from IGN):

Battles that last 45 minutes or more aren't unheard of in Grim. Heck, when I got to one of the final showdowns, I was spending 80 and 90 minutes trying to take out a stubborn group of hell spawn. For the most part, I didn't mind the lengthy gameplay sessions, but I don't have a life and get to play these things at work. If you don't get to game for 10 hours a day, you're going to have a sticking point with Grim.

Namely, there's no way to save mid-battle.

Crap, that means I'm out as well.  Carving out 45 minutes in one sitting is a major stretch for me, and 90 minutes is pretty much impossible.  Oh well.

EDIT TO ADD: Carcasonne is coming to XBLA this week!   I will get that.  I think Carcasonne will be more accessible and a bigger hit than Catan was.

Ohhhhhh!  In for Carcasonne! 

I have the demo of Overlord but haven't fired it up yet, I'll try it out and see if it is worth my cash.
Man this sucks-Carcasonne looks really good and like something I might enjoy, but I purchased Catan and all of you just stopped playing it that same week. I still have yet to get in a multiplayer game.

Same here.  I tried playing some MP Catan a few times (both with the GT/OO crew, and against random people), but it was always really flaky.  Horrible lag, timeouts, dropped connections, etc.  Consequently, I haven't even fired it up for over a month.

As interesting as Carcasonne looks, I'm afraid it would end up the same way, so I'm passing on it for now.

I decided to put that play through off for a bit, but I am planning a Baldurs Gate-Planescape-Icewind Dale mega marathon at some point.

That's nearly a Warning-esque undertaking.  Good luck.

So we've got mytocles, a long time Gone Gold/Console Gold/Gaming Trend reader, who posts that she was so offended by a picture in the "This is Fun" thread that she didn't want to read past the first page.  So offended that when we're talking about the Sunday Skin posts, she recalls this car hood picture from another thread as a perfect example of a demeaning picture that could drive away someone such as herself.

And then someone goes and bumps the three year old picture up with the latest postings in the thread.

FWIW, I have no problem with the Sunday Skin or "This is Fun" threads, and also thought that was unnecessary and in rather poor taste.   thumbsdown

Speak for yourself.   I demand a refund for my troubles, and am considering filing a lawsuit for the emotional distress I experienced by actually having to do a full day of work.  Expect to be hearing from my high-powered army of lawyers soon, Ron.

Can we just make it standard forum procedure to blame any forum problems on CeeKay from now on?

My final impressions are here, and there's a ton of good impressions in that thread.

To sum it up:  If you've never played it before, I would put FFVI far, far above any of the games on your list.  I played through it pretty recently for the first time, and it truly is an amazing game.

The deafening silence around Simcity DS has me a little concerned.  I loved the old SimCity games back in the day, and was hoping for a decent iteration on the DS.  Looks like the only recent reviews have been pretty poor, and there's surprisingly little press (previews, etc.) for a game that comes out tomorrow.

Looks like I'll probably need to wait for a rental or used copy.

If this is the first true JRPG on the 360 I cannot see it winning over many people who aren't JRPG fans already.

It's not about converting non-JRPG fans.  Instead it's about converting JRPG fans to the 360 from Sony consoles which have dominated the genre the past two generations. 

Exactly.  Last gen, PS2 was really the only choice for JRPG's.  So if BD can convert a few of us JRPG nuts over to 360, then it's a huge win for the system.  Reality is, if people aren't already JRPG fans then they're probably not going to be.

And truth be told, it worked - at least with me.  BD is one of the main reasons I chose a 360 over a PS3 at this point.

I still love the old-school "enemy on one side, heroes on the other" combat, so that part makes me excited.  I get less excited, however, about the incredibly dull and lifeless environment they were running around in.

Still a day-one purchase for me.
10508  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Psychonauts!!! on: June 18, 2007, 04:31:45 PM
Spent a few hours with Psychonauts over the weekend.  It certainly gets 10 out of 10 points for creativity, but didn't really grab me that much.  Got up to the:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Battle with the blueprint tank inside Raz's head

and I can't say that I've got a huge desire to keep playing.  Maybe it's because I've been spoiled recently by Tomb Raider:  Anniversary's epic levels, but the levels in Psychonauts didn't really seem that impressive to me.   It's not a bad game by any stretch, but certainly hasn't been the "OMG, best game evar!!11!" experience that I'd heard about.

I thought I saw in an interview somewhere that difficulty-wise they're trying to put GH3 in between GH1 and GH2.

I'm with Brett on this one.  While I personally think many of our actions in Iraq are deplorable, they certainly don't fall under any definition of "genocide" that I'm aware of.
10511  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: House votes to withhold emergency funding to "Sanctuary Cities" on: June 17, 2007, 09:14:55 PM
The Littleton Republican's amendment to the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill appears to have no language specifically defining what a "sanctuary city" is. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper has long disputed giving the city that label.

So they're proposing to withhold emergency funds for an entire city based on the actions of a small portion of the populace, without ever defining what the specific criteria for withholding is?

No matter what your stance on illegal immigration is, that is completely asinine and more than a little bit scary.

As Kevin stated, and as have many others, and I wish people would recognize this: The Wii is not targeted toward us.  IT'S NOT OUR SYSTEM.  Just like an 800 video card is not targeted to the guy still running a pentium 2 for his Excel spreadsheets.

It seems that many people on the fence regarding which system to buy (especially parents) are picking up a Wii instead of the PS3 or 360, simply because the price of entry is lower.    If Little Johnny wants a video game system, Suzy Soccermom could care less about HD, Blu-Ray, etc., and will make a console decision simply on price.  Hence, the Wii.

Sony and MS can talk all they want about not wanting to go after the "different market" or "casual gamer", but these same people that are buying Wii's in droves could just as easily be buying a PS3 or 360 if the price were simply more reasonable.

Man I love that song.  It sounds awesome, especially considering they came in and re-recorded it.  However, all the screen shaking, flashing, and extra sound effects were absolutely ridiculous.  Glad I'll only be playing single player.

Hope that's the expert setting

Looked more like Hard to me.   From what I've heard, Cult is supposed to be a top tier song, and that didn't look nearly difficult enough to me.
