2121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Does anyone here even have a DS? I have some ?? PSP too! on: March 28, 2005, 07:35:18 AM
I also have both and have played both since I got the psp. Both are great different systems. So far the DS does seem to be a more solid  machine though. At least at launch. Less issues with it(for me at least), but the psp`s issiues(once more for me at least) aren`t dealbreakers and will hopefully stay that way. Both are great systems it seems. Just buy the warranties! :wink:

While the number of tracks in Wipeout is a bit disappointing to me (8 plus 4 "Classic" tracks that you can unlock), it really becomes a whole new game once you start working on the faster tournaments.  I put in probably 4 hours today and had a hard time stopping.

For a dramatic change in speed sensation change the camera to internal.


 I agree every with everything you said. I`m really suprised how much I`m liking this game.

I think I just played a 8 race tournament. So there`s a bit more there than your saying :wink: . Stats are kept for everything! It`s not superdeep, but it`s deep enough and great fun.

2125  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Untold Legends a bust? on: March 25, 2005, 09:44:46 PM
My guess is that by yourself this game is just so-so, BUT with 3 others joined together for a wireless co-op goodness, that would be alot more fun!

I played some more wipeout, and WOW!!! The further you get in the game the better it gets. Some of the visuals on this thing are unbelieveable. The fog effects, the lighting, the weather effects(water sticking to the screen etc) are all amazing to see on a handheld. The gameplay is so good, it`s almost impossible for me to put down. Two thumbs WAY up!
2128  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Yet another PSP topic - What one (maybe 2) game(s)? on: March 25, 2005, 08:14:04 AM
Wipeout pure flat out owns! This game is really being enjoyed by me so far.
2129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP - dead pixels? on: March 25, 2005, 07:31:39 AM
I don`t think I have any. I didn`t notice any earlier, but just now I saw 3 or 4 dots, dust or dead pixels etc. I did just put on a screen protector, so I think it just something on it. Even if they are dead pixels, it`s only shows on certain screens, not many at all so far, and it`s hardly noticeable. I`m just going to forget about it, and next year when my warranty is about to expire at EB, I`ll bring it in and get another psp+another year of warranty. If these are dead pixels, maybe by then they`ll manufactor the screens a bit differently and there wouldn`t be any, if there isn`t already... :wink:  Great frickin` system though. Wipeout is amazing. Same with the spiderman 2 movie. I can`t wait for mercury...

Man...The more I think about it...the more I want to go out really early ad grab my stuff as opposed to later on in the day. I won`t be able to play it until tommarow night anyways...I`ll probably go in the afternoon...hhmmm....or the morning....After reading up on wipeout, I`m really looking forward to getting this stuff!!!

I wouldn`t call dual screens and one being a touchscreen exactly shitty 10 year old hardware.

Touch screens have been around a looong time, so have those little screens the DS has.  Yeah, most PDA's don't have two screens, but they certainly have higher resolution ones then the DS, and have had touch tapping games for along time, even from some high profile companies like Sega.  So, the DS really is nothing new smile.  But you are right, not the time or place.

I'm almost sold on Wipeout Pure.  I just worry about not getting into it.  Career modes, and building up stats usually get me into racers, and I'm not sure this has it.  But it still looks great.

Quote
Well, Scott, to be fair, launch titles have sucked for every system since cartridges died out.

I'm not disputing this.  Just disappointed at some of the corners being cut and some of the games being delayed.  

Right now, I'm leaning towards Lumines and Metal Gear Acid if I do get the PSP.  I can't open it till Saturday anyway (birthday, and I'd set a bad example for the kids if I open it early!) so I can read everyone's opinions.  Wipeout may replace Lumines though for me.


 We must agree to disagree, but my point was and still is...2 screens, with one being a touch screen on a game system all together has never been done. And the developers are/should/and will be doing all kinds of new things with it. anywho... :wink:

 Check out that gamespy stuff I posted a link to. I`m pretty sure the wipeout  pure has stats etc. In fact they say there is a stat that says how long you have looked at the stats! Hehe. The zone mode looks sweet! You don`t control you speed, the game does. Every lap(or every so often not sure) you go faster and faster. And you can`t get power-ups to replace your shield. So when you run out of shields, poof, you`re done. I`ve heard great things about this. I surely don`t want to push someone into getting a game they don`t want though, that`s for sure. Did you read the reviews? They seem to cover just about everything. The gamespy one seems the best and most detailed to me.

 Oh, and from what I`ve heard/read, the spiderman 2 game blows on the psp. The review here seemed to be very positive, but elsewhere that doesn`t seem to be the case. I haven`t played it, so I don`t know. I just wanted to pass some info along. Don`t kill the messanger! :wink:

Wipeout Pure looks awesome.  I'd play it an hour and stop though, can't get into the arcade racers.

The Gamespot review of Metal Gear Acid probably means I'll grab the PSP and Acid.  

I based the Nintendo DS because I think it is shitty hardware running 10 year old games.

I'm bashing the PSP games because I think some of them are sloppy ports.  Some are pretty solid though, like Wipeout and Ridge Racer.

Quote
There are no excuses for sloppy controls though.

That's killing me for NFL Street.  I want it, but don't want hand cramps playing it.  Same with Fifa, I'd rather get the console version fo good control.  Of course, Winning Eleven on the PSP I'll get no matter what!


 I wouldn`t call dual screens and one being a touchscreen exactly shitty 10 year old hardware. :wink:

 And I`m NOT going to try and persuade anyone on anything but, from what I played, wipeout pure is the best game out there for psp right now and gamerankings seems to agree--> http://www.gamerankings.com/itemrankings/default_psp/1024
 If you don`tl ike arcade racers though, you simply don`t like `em. I`m not a huge fan of arcady racers. PGR2 is as arcady as I *usually* like `em. Burnout 2 was too arcady for me(Never played 3 even though I heard it rocks). For some reason though, wipeout pure was lots of fun for me and I didn`t even know what buttons did what :wink: .




 Gamespy has this stuff up now http://ps2.gamespy.com/articles/598/598392p1.html
 It`s a bunch of reviews etc. Great info. Wipeout pure got 5 starts! Further proving I`m making the right choice for me!

 I`m not going to get into this again, but he`s right :wink: . I think people thought "wow, look at all of those games for psp on day one!" They didn`t think that half or more of them would blow, like they do...

 I think this launch is better than the ds`s BUT...the DS is trying something completely new, where the psp is not. I`ve been thinking of grabbing twisted metal or thug2 along with wipeout pure. Not sure yet though. I figure I *should* just grab WOP now, then get mercury in a week or two rather than grabbing one of above tomarrow. TM and thug2 aren`t going anywhere :wink: .
2137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What games are everyone getting at launch for the PSP? on: March 24, 2005, 03:30:09 AM
Why doesn`t anyone want wipeout pure. It`s not a port, it IS fun as hell and it`s looks FREAKING AMAZING!!! :wink:

 Some of you guys that don`t want a psp anymore where the same guys bashing the DS for the same reasons you don`t want a PSP.<--long, bad sentence! :wink:

I went into EB on tuesday and grabbed a preorder slot for launch day because someone cancelled. You might get lucky too. If not,bestbuy is opening @ 8 am like others said. When I was going to go that route, I went to BB and I believe they said they had over 200! I`m near cleveland Ohio if that helps. Not a huge city, but not as small as it get either. Hope that helps.

Well let's see.

I just picked up (just got back from lunch):

A Nintendo DS System! biggrin

I also grabbed the Minish Cap (for me) & Yoshi Touch & Go (for my son - Easter gift).

I've been dying to get this system and I love the fact that I picked it up on the eve of the PSP release.  I got it at Circuit City and with its purchase got a $15 gift card that I immediately applied to the two games, which were also 15% off.

I don't plan on getting a PSP.  I already have a PS2. :wink:

Now, to start saving for Xbox 360.


My Condolences.  

You will realise your mistake soon enough. It took me about 5 days. :cry:



 Shoosh :wink: ! You crazy people :wink: ! I have  DS and LOVE IT!!! I`m getting a PSP tomarrow and I`m assuming I`ll love it too! Spread the love around people! Not only one thing is good in this world!

 After seeing that untold legends review, I`m going to stick with grabbing wipeout pure(unless there are lots of good reviews for untold legends tonight). Wipeout pure looks like a safe bet.
2142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP First Impressions! on: March 23, 2005, 09:29:54 PM
I`ll grab mine tomarrow at some point. I have some running around to do that involves visiting someone at the hospital. I`ll proably be able to sit down with it tomarrow night though for a few hours.

Here`s some stuff on wipeout pure http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/920780.asp.

 Gameplay: 9.5
I'm like a bird in a tree, singing its happy song on a warm summer morning just before the sun comes up. Wipeout Pure is quintessential. It's PSP racing in its purest form. If you don't buy it, you will rent it, play it in-store or at a friend's house. The first thought that will come to mind: "Why didn't I buy this at launch?" Nothing you buy could better – just different. No game is faster, we know that for certain. The controls are so good that it's hard to imagine that another PSP racer controls better. This is the leader of the pack; the king that all other racing games must bow to. And it will wear this crown until Burnout arrives. That's when the real battle begins.

Graphics: 9.5
Jaw-dropping. I know PSP games will only get better – by the time Christmas comes we'll be playing games that look twice as good as most of the launch titles. This makes me hate to give out a high score like a 9.5 to any game for its graphics. Wipeout Pure is beautiful though, so beautiful in fact that it will shock you. I've played five of the 15+ launch titles. I've seen videos of almost all of them. From what I know thus far, none can compare to Wipeout Pure. If nothing else, this game moves faster than any other PSP launch title. The polygon count must be unreal, though I'm sure it's the frame rate that will impress you the most.

Sound: 8.5
The king of techno is back. Repetition is not a part of this soundtrack, except for one annoying song. The rest is pure ear-pleasing bliss, pumping original beat-filled tracks through the PSP's tiny speakers. Fans will not be disappointed. The rest of you will be amazed that, with the right composer, techno music can actually be good.

Difficulty: Med/Easy
Step right up, step right up. Watch in amusement as this volunteer gamer tries to conquer Wipeout Pure but can't. It's a rare site folks, to watch a gamer not beat a racing game immediately after purchasing it. Only $5 to see it all happen at the Carnival of Weirdness.

Concept: 8.5
Wipeout for the small screen. It didn't take a rocket scientist to come up with that one. The PS2-quality gameplay, the near-PS2-quality graphics, the amazing sound, the unforgettable course creations ... Wipeout Pure is out of this world.  Lucky for you, you don't have to leave the galaxy to get it.

Multiplayer: 9.0
WiFi-connected gamers can race up to seven opponents in multiplayer. With many airports, cyber cafes and even Panera Bread offering free WiFi access, the PSP is becoming a true portable multiplayer gaming device.

Overall: 9.5
Pure gets props for being just as good on the PSP as it is on PS2. It gets props for having incredible graphics, for moving at lightning-fast speeds, and for never, ever showing signs of technological inferiority (gimmicks like fog, slowdown, etc., are not a part of Wipeout Pure's beautiful world). It gets major props for having great controls without the use of a true analog stick. The PSP sliding-thumbstick thingy is more sensitive than it appears at first. No one will walk away unimpressed.

 That was from gamezone, but pretty much everyone says the same. I think I have to get this one tomarrow. I`m hoping there is a review of untold legends before tomarrow so I`ll know whether or not to grab it.
2149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Questions on: March 23, 2005, 05:16:45 AM
One more thing to add. I`ve heard that the US psp comes with an extra battery, is this true?
2150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What games are everyone getting at launch for the PSP? on: March 23, 2005, 04:44:52 AM
I really didn`t want a psp until recently. Now I really want it! I`m starting to think people really want to get their hopes up, just to be lets down.
 
 There is a point to this, believe it or not...

 Halo 2 did NOT suck, it could have been better, but it was a great game. Mainly the multiplayer.
 Doom 3 did NOT suck. Id said doom3 will be a retelling of the original. WTF was it? A retelling of the original. Id didn`t claim it to be the next coming, YOU did!!!
 The DS rocks, don`t let anyone else tell you otherwise. It`s a new system, it will have good games. Give it some freaking time!!! Oh, well it`s been out, what...4-5 months, and boohoo, where`s all my games! :roll:
 And here we go with the PSP, "this game sucks, then this must too, I hate psp I don`t want one!!!!"
 I see people go from super happy to buy something, to "I`ll get something else cuz this sucks" direction in days, maybe even hours or minutes.

 This really has nothing to do with anyone in specific, really it doesn`t. And in contrast to other forums, you guys are level headed :shock: ... :wink:  But, don`t hype stuff up to super crazy levels, just to burst your bubble if it isn`t perfect.

 More on topic. I was in EB today and grabbed a flyer that says, trade in 3 xbox or ps2 games and get one of these free. There`s like 6 or 9 psp games to pick from. Too bad I already cleared out my selection just a week or two ago... :evil: . Maybe I`ll look through my collection again...

 Don`t mind me. I quit smoking...11 months ago :evil: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Questions on: March 23, 2005, 04:08:20 AM
So, I have a few more questions for you guys. Does the psp connect to the pc via a normal usb cable? Or is something special required? What other options do I have as far as connecting to the internet, other than buying a whole wireless setup. I have a wired router, would a wireless entrypoint do the job? I`ve heard you can connect to your pc to use you internet connection for mp games etc, if you don`t have any wireless stuff. Is that true? Thanks again!
2152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What games are everyone getting at launch for the PSP? on: March 23, 2005, 03:56:45 AM
Yeah, I`ve witnessed this game in motion and, it didnt impress me at all. The graphics aren`t bad, just the gameplay appears to be :wink: . I know of some people that love it though, go figure.

 I`m looking at wipeout pure and untold legends. I think I`m going to grab probably just one...I`m not sure which yet though.

 I played wipeout pure for a few minutes today at EB. It was fun. Spectatular graphics combined with really fast smooth gameplay. I`m thinking I`ll go this route. My wife would probably enjoy it as well, which always helps :wink: . But untold legends, if done properly, could be tons of fun.
 
 Untold legends comes out tomarrow, so hopefully there will be a review up before thurday. I would sure think so.

At least I`m toning down! :wink:  Anywho, who here is interested in tony hawk, twisted metal, or wipeout pure. I`m trying to figure out what`s better and has more replay value for both single and multiplayer stuff. Anyone care to comment?

Well some people like having their nipples clipped with clothespins....so there isn't much suffering that someone doesn't like.

For me I like it easy.  I know that is what I like so I look for games that meet that criteria and this isn't one of them.

*Sigh* Is it possible to get thru one thread that contains Nintendo related information without Rage + Hetz getting in their "OMG NINTENDO SUXORS SONY/MS RuL3z!!!111oneone"

Didn't think so...


 Lol. I`m not saying I remember those two guys being especially negative towards nintendo, BUT...there`s always someone saying something negative about something! :roll: Even me sometimes!! :wink:


 Also...there`s always lots of angles to a story. The PSP can NOT do anything like those mini games. No touch screen=no games like that...or like starcraft etc, which are possible only on the ds. Nintendo tried something new, which more people should try. The same old, same old, doesn`t get me too far anymore. Plus like someone mentioned the psp games cost more, the system costs more. Don`t get me wrong the more I look at the psp, I think I might want one, but not to replace my ds, but in addition to my ds.
 Last night the wife and I had some adult beverages and played warioware touched and mario 64DS. You simply can NOT get that experience anywhere else. The graphics are good on the ds, just not great...yet. I`m sure there will be a few games out later this year and later in the generation that REALLY look nice on the ds. I`m done shooting out my random comments. :wink:
