No, but I really need to.  Finding time (and motivation) in my 70 hour work week is tough.  frown

I was going to grab it, but some of the early reviews are scaring me off a bit.  Will probably wait until I can find a used copy.

Love your avatar, BTW.  smile

LMAO... Ron, really - please do NOT apologize, omg!  You are hysterical!!! This is the Best Site Ever, and a tiny glitch in the gig is to be expected occasionally.  Now, if only someone would talk about MY game... /sigh...

Remember everyone, don't take anything for granted - we have been blessed, really - this place is The Best, Ron is The Best, everyone here is The Best... AND...

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.
10574  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.

thumbsdown  Outside of the top tier, I thought GH2 was maybe a little bit too easy in terms of difficulty, and would actually have liked a step up.

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.

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.

I put my pre-order down just incase supplies are sparse, which I'm expecting. Not sure whether I'll actually buy the game though.

Me too.  I had Tenchu pre-ordered, but will shift it to this instead.

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.

Have you tried Final Fantasy XII (PS2)?  That's about as good as RPG's get, in my opinion.  Lots of character building options, fun combat, epic story, beautiful graphics, an amazing gameworld, etc, etc.

I've tried demos of nearly every XBLA game, and Catan is the only one that interested me enough to buy.  I suppose I like it well enough, but always had trouble getting connected for multiplayer games.  Single player is far less interesting.
10593  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]Tenchu Z on: June 13, 2007, 12:05:08 PM
Looks like all the other reviews rolling in are all just as bad.  This sentence alone (from this review) makes me want to avoid this game like the plague:

Quote
Missions in Tenchu Z are unnecessarily frustrating due to the lack of checkpoints or an in-mission save option, so if you die at any point during the mission you have to start over at the very beginning. This wouldn’t be that big of a deal since the game’s imbecilic enemies put up very little challenge, but there are cheap deaths galore thanks to the trap doors indiscriminately placed all over the levels. In the middle of caves, in rice fields, inside houses, hidden in patches of bushes; seriously these damn things are everywhere and you rarely see them in time to save yourself before plummeting to your untimely demise – and by untimely, we mean just minutes before you make it to the end of a given level. Sorry, but those trap doors are the work of a sadistically malevolent game designer.

VTM-Bloodlines. I have played through it probably 15 times since Xmas 04. Only since Fallout 2 have I loved a game this much. Don't know why either. Now I wanna go play frown

Just picked up VTM-Bloodlines through Steam on Saturday and worked through the tutorial.  I'm hoping the real game starts to feel more RPG than FPS, or it won't hold my attention long.

Dreamfall would be my vote.  I typically don't like adventure games, but I saw it on some 'best of' list, and picked it up on a whim.   I was simply blown away by the incredible story and characters.  Played The Longest Journey afterwards, but enjoyed Dreamfall quite a bit more.

You can extract some fun out of the experience if you use your imagination and approach each level like a ninja, but unless you really, really want to kill some ninjas, you shouldn't waste time and energy trying to make this game fun. The developer certainly didn't.

Good lord. Did the devs even TRY with this game? Man...

Sadly, I don't think the Tenchu devs have tried with anything since the first PS2 installment.  The X-Box version, PS2 sequel, PSP, DS, and now apparently this one have all been simply awful.  It's really too bad, as I really enjoyed the PS1 versions, and think the concept has a lot of potential.
