2161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Holy crap - Goldeneye DS!! (&Dragon Quest + Katamari Dam on: March 21, 2005, 01:31:29 AM
Quote from: "Dimmona"
*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:
2162  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / mmmmm...good food indeed, have you guys been here? on: March 18, 2005, 10:18:17 PM
http://www.benihana.com/

 Good stuff. We try and go about once a year(maybe a few more times than that). It`s so good tasting, but so bad for you with all the salt etc. Everything from watching some dude that barely speak english throw knives around and cook right infront of you, to eating the food is pure joy.  Anyone else here a big fan of this, or any other similar places?
2163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any other console gamers not care a whit about handhelds? on: March 18, 2005, 09:19:47 PM
I really never had one until somewhat recently, and I NEVER thought I would want one.
 
   Well, to make a long story short about 2 years ago, I had ALOT of store credit at EB, and I finally decided to grab a (at the time) new model of the gba, the gba sp. I loved the idea of the battery being built in and rechargable. I played the crap out of that thing , and so did my wife thanks to wario ware and mario golf etc. I sold it to grab a DS, and we love it too. Mario 64ds and warioware touched, both keep us very busy and have been a TON of fun so far.
   
     It`s great for me. Alot of the snes games I never played before,and same with some of the 64 ports(M64 etc.). I rented mario 64 on the 64, but I didn`t even scratch the surface.
   
     I might grab a psp down the road when there are games that interest me, but right now the price is too high, and the games aren`t really my cup of tea.
   
    After having these handhelds though, it really opened my eyes on how fun a handheld can be. Sitting on the porch, consuming some beverages, playing a game of baseball, or m64 etc. Good fun.

PNY.... solid as a rock.

I am very very happy with it.

Thumbs up!


 Good to hear that. I`ve heard good things about PNY stuff. I have a BFG, and I have to say I`m very happy with it as well.

the best thing about BFG is their lifetime warranty that isn't invalidated when the card becomes outdated.  supposedly, if you have an old card that goes bad, they'll actually replace it with a current card of the same value you initially paid.  i've seen reports of people with cards that are a couple years old getting replaced with shiny new top-of-the-line models.  you can't be that for customer support.


 Yea, I`ve read/heard/saw similar things before too. I had to call them once for something and get this...they seemed to know what they were doing :shock: . That`s a rare thing these days :wink: .
2165  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Is anyone interested in this Dell PC? specs inside. on: March 18, 2005, 08:09:47 PM
It`s a 1.8ghz p4, 768 ddr, geforce 3 ti 200, sblive!, 20 or 40 gb hdd (I can`t remember, but I can surely find out)etc. It`s in good shape, and nothing is wrong with it. I would need to reformat it and reinstall , or at least reformat the hdd and give you the disks etc (windows disks for XP, drivers disks etc).Though I`d give you the disks in either case(obviously). I`ve just been sitting on this thing, and it`s not doing me any good just sitting here. Message me if you want, or email me...[email protected]. Thanks.

 Same here. It wasn`t perfect, but it was interesting and lots of fun for me.
2169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What game have you replayed the most? on: March 18, 2005, 10:00:19 AM
I forgot the really obvious. I`ve played counterstrike for 5 or 6 years!!! I seriously have invested some sick amount of time into this game. I used to play it for hours on end. Hours and hours. I did put it down for the most part for a while there, but right when cs:s came out, I started all over again. I don`t play as much as I have in the past, but I`m starting to get addicted again.
2170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Paper Mario-The thousand year door! on: March 17, 2005, 10:15:39 PM
I absolutely LOVE the humor in this game. They make jokes about themselves and the game left and right. Funny stuff. If my wife and I weren`t in the middle of playing other stuff, I`d play this with her alongside my ongoing game. She`d love it, it`s just so entertaining as a whole. I`d really recommend this to anyone who does/or doesn`t normally like turn-based games. I`m really picky w/ my selection of turn-based games.
 
 Kotor, I tried TWICE to get into...I didn`t like it.
 Mario and Luigi:superstar saga...I loved it, and still am. I`m not done w/
 it yet!
 Final fantasy tactics for gba I LOVE!
 Advanced wars 2, I liked quite a bit too.

 I guess this PM2 is the first non-handheld turnbased game I`ve enjoyed in years! It is simply a GREAT game.
2171  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / WARNING!!!! SURVIVOR IS ON TONIGHT!!! (3/16) on: March 17, 2005, 08:47:08 PM
Wow, thanks. I just saw that "warning, survivor is on tonight" and you saved me from watching it! If I were to "flip" through the channels and come across this and accidently watch it. Ouch! :wink:
 
 All joking aside...I did like the first season, then I got bored of it. But last time it was on, I got into it a bit (to my surprise). They mixed up enough stuff to make it a bit more fresh, for me at least. I`ll probably give it a go more often now because of that.
2172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What game have you replayed the most? on: March 17, 2005, 08:43:13 PM
Quote from: "Jack Burton"
The four I've probably played the most times that I've finished each time:
-Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1) ~  Unbelievably good game. My top 2D platformer of all time - uncountable
-River City Ransom (NES) (always multiplayer) - uncountable
-XCOM (PC) - uncountable
-Blaster Master (NES) - uncountable


These are honorable mentions:
-Star Control 2 - 8 times
-Fallout 1,2 - around 10 each ~ (in fact I think I'll start another round tomorrow!)
-Master of Orion 1,2 - uncountable
-Master of Magic - uncountable
-CIV series - uncountable
-Wing Commander series - 5 or 6 times each
-Planet's Edge - 4 times
-Gran Turismo 2 (PS) - uncountable
-Monster Rancher series (PS and PS2) - uncountable
-Final Fantasy Tactics (PS) (never finished) - 10 times
-Mario 64 (N64) - 15 times
-Zelda (NES) - 10 times
-Kid Icarus (NES) - 6 times
-Wizards and Warriors (NES) - 9 times
-Bionic Commando (NES) - 10 times
-Trojan (NES) - 8 times
-Strider (NES) - 6 times
-RC Pro Am (NES) - uncountable
-Mike Tyson's Punch-Out (NES) - 12 times
-Warp Factor (Apple II) - uncountable
-Phantasie Series (Apple II) - uncountable
-Wizards Crown (Apple II) - uncountable
-Legacy of the Ancients (C64)  (played a ton of times but never finished) - 20 times
-Eamon Adventures (Apple II) (anyone remember these?) - uncountable

I better stop now...

Everything is approximate and uncountable is over 20 or 25 times.
These prolly dont count:
Tactical Ops
Counter Strike: Source

Ok so that may be a little much to mention here BUT... It sure seems like games can't keep my attention as well as they used to...  They just don't make em like they used to.

And now you've forced me to get emulators... Right this second.

OH and..... Starcraft SUCKS!!!!   *ducks*


 Wow, and I thought I replayed stuff alot... :wink:

 Both max paynes I replayed 3 times I believe. Half-life 1 twice I think, and HL2 almost through my 2nd playthrough of it. The original halo on xbox 2 or 3 times, between co-op and just me playing. Prince of persia:sot, once myself and once w/ my wife. I`m sure I will play RE4 once more at least! I know there`s more, I just can`t think of them right now.
2173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Paper Mario-The thousand year door! on: March 17, 2005, 08:37:50 PM
Wow, this game really takes off once you get down the road a bit, so to speak.

 Spoilers(maybe)...



 Once I finished the first chapter this game really takes off. I like how you control the princess and other characters. It`s almost like a interactive cut-scene, where you control other characters but only to advance the story. I loved everything up to this point so far, BUT wow...it really seems to go places after the first chapter. Great game so far!
2174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Resident Evil 4 Impressions on: March 17, 2005, 08:34:21 PM
Wow. No shit, no saving. I`m up for the challenge, I just need to make sure I have a few hours to get through it. I don`t want to spend one hour and then have to quit for one reason or another and then have to start all over again. I did try it and I got owned by the mob of enemies. I`ve been playing quite a bit of mercenies mode too, that`s great stuff.

2177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psychonauts!!! on: March 16, 2005, 10:34:44 PM
So, any word on that demo? Did they (OXM) say there would be a demo next month on the disk?
2178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire Demo- Any Good on: March 16, 2005, 10:33:32 PM
I wasn`t really looking forward to it, but I thought it would be something that might interest me. Nope. I`m not saying it`s bad, or good really...just not for me. Plus, the demo is so small and really didn`t answer many questions of mine about the game. I`ll read reviews, but probably just stay away from this one.
2179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 - What do we know? on: March 16, 2005, 07:55:27 PM
I read somewhere yesterday about a demo somewhat soon. I can`t remember where I read that though. I`d love to see a demo sooner than later for this one.

I actually found the demo a little too easy, and some of my friends think so too (they played both the original and PT).

that's my only other complaint about the SC sequels...after learning the tricks  in the first game, sneaking was very easy.


 While I do agree with you to some extent, isn`t that like saying "once I figured out how to shoot the gun the fps became really easy" :wink: ?

Got this last night.  Woohoo. smile  It is fun... and not bad looking.  My first wow moment would be when I activated the bridge in Petal Woods.  That was too cool.  My wife laughed out loud when I got 'cursed'.  I'm looking forward to finishing this one.


 I agree 100% w/ you on ALL of that :wink: . That bridge was pretty cool, same w/ the "curse". Everyday it seems I`m looking forward to playing this more and more.
2183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Paper Mario-The thousand year door! on: March 16, 2005, 09:41:38 AM
Ah. It seems like there`s ALOT to this game.
2184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psychonauts!!! on: March 16, 2005, 09:40:25 AM
I`ll probably wait on the price to drop a bit too. Too many good games recently :wink: .
2185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psychonauts!!! on: March 15, 2005, 09:49:53 PM
Here`s some info on this if you haven`t heard or read about it yet(Which I find hard to believe)http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/561517.asp
 It looks like it`s FINALLY coming out next month on xbox(I think other platforms too). After watching some of the movies I`m starting to look forward to this one. It has a crazy look to it, and what appears to be fun platforming action w/ a twist. I`m thinking this would be good(if it gets good reviews and turns out good)for the wife and I to play once we finish beyond good and evil and BG:DA2. Anyone else looking forward to this one?

Quote from: "Thin_J"
I enjoyed the first one, but burned out a lot on the second one. The rigidity in the mission structure and the lack of freedom of choice regarding how I played through a given mission all really started to anger me.

The multiplayer was sheer genious, but playing it with random people was awful.

That being said after playing the demo I'm looking forward to the new one. Everything I hear seems to say they've given the player far more input on how they'd like to approach a level. I look forward to the first few reviews. If I hear mention of so much as one "Don't kill anyone" level, I'll pass and be perfectly ok without the game.

If I find out there's no levels with that kind of strict rule in place, then I'll buy it then and there.


 I guess I`m the only one who liked those missions...it is a stealth game you know :wink: . I can certainly understand though, why some people would NOT like those parts/missions of the game.

 They did seem to make all of the adjustments that I`ve been waiting for, so I`m crossing my fingers. And I agree about the MP, it rocked. Playing with strangers, not so fun...This time I have a few friends on live who love this game and will be all over it and ready to team up alot. Plus, the co-op looks insanely fun.
2190  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psi-Ops vs. Second Sight - FIGHT! on: March 15, 2005, 08:59:37 PM
I guess depends on how much you paid for it. I got SS for 9.99 NEW at EB just a few weeks ago. I think after HL2 on PC, psi ops big feature, the physics, just seemed far inferior in comparison. That probably took alot of the punch out of that feature, for me at least. And SS had less impressive tech(not much impressed me...), but far more impressive art etc. I also loved the stylized look SS had, maybe at first I didn`t...but it sure grew on me.
2191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Paper Mario-The thousand year door! on: March 15, 2005, 08:55:11 PM

After getting my oxm with the review and after lasts months disk with the demo on it. I`m going to throw down and grab this one on day one. The single player, co-op, and mp all look great. It looks to be a whole lot of gaming for your dollar! Anyone else looking forward to this"all of a sudden". I liked the first 2, and it looks like I`ll LOVE this one.

Side HDTV note: MVP 2005 looks great in 720p (picked it up last night) smile smile


 Pardon me for this but...No freaking shit!!! That game looks amazing on my TV in 720p. A great looking,  and fun playing(solo or on Live!) baseball game. I haven`t really played a baseball game in years. Triple play 99 and 2000 on ps1, wow...it`s been a while! Then a little of triple play 2000 or 2001 maybe on PC. So I`m just going apeshit over this stuff. This game is awesome!

 And as far as 1080i on gt4. I`ve heard it looks better on 480p, because the 1080i is pretty ugly. Just thought I`d chime in :wink: .
