2321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wario Ware touched (NDS). Impressions on: February 16, 2005, 05:04:37 AM
This game rocks. I grabbed it earlier today. Fun stuff, really fun stuff. I`d say if you liked the other wariowares, you`d have to like this. Now that`s just my opinion, but I`m pretty sure that`s the truth. After two minutes of it I was convinced. I`d almost go as far to stay that if you don`t like this game, you don`t like fun. IMO.
 Graphics are actually a bit better than the gba game. Not great techically(but good enough,and bright and vibrant), but the artwork is good and funny.
 Sound, also better than the gba game. Every song/sound effect, etc. sounds great ...Everything sounds like it should. Some of the songs are rather funny.
 And the controls really do make it different in a good way. You don`t use any buttons for this game. Only turning it on or off uses a button.
 I`m sure it is shorter than the other ww games, but who cares when it`s this fun.

The very easy voice setup on Live! is great. That`s a big factor for me. Plus I wanna see how buggy the PC game is and how much the graphics differ.

I have a 3.0 ghz p4, 1024mb ddr, 6800gt 256mb, sb audigy2, etc. I`ve always ran 1024x768x32bit@85hz(sp?) , well not always but recently with this setup. I use some fsaa etc. But I always want to run higher resolution, but I like to have the same res/refresh rate for games and desktop etc. Here`s the question, what`s a resolution that popular and most if not all games support it? That`s why I stick with this. Every single game I`ve played in the last 5 years support this res. If i don`t stick with the same res, I have to always re-center the image on the monitor, and I`m lazy :wink: . And obviously I don`t wan to go to high, cuz then when something comes out more taxing...I`ll have to readjust everything. I know that a wierd request/question...but nevertheless does anyone have any ideas/answers? Thanks.

Well seriously though...I`ll play both sides here. There`s plenty of I hate/love steam threads around so I won`t do that. I`m sure some people have issues with steam just like anything else out there. I`m sure some people don`t, just like anything else out there. Steam isn`t perfect, it`s nice to have easy patching through it but it is still cumbersome IMHO, but it certaintly NOT the devil like some make it sound. Have you used steam? If not, how do YOU know what it`s like? I`d hate for someone to miss a game like this, because of these reasons...Game this good only come out every few years. I`d think about it before you do it, that`s all. I`m certainly not going to try and change your mind. But I would think more about it, since you have to wait anyways. Just my opinion, Later.

Nice one :wink: . I`ve done similar things, even worse. I shall not speak of them. :oops:
2332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wario Ware touched (NDS). Impressions on: February 15, 2005, 03:56:28 AM
One more review is up. http://gba.gamespy.com/nintendo-ds/wario-ware-ds/587485p1.html 4.5 outta 5 is good stuff!


Pros
It's more WarioWare!; seriously, do you know how addictive these games are?
Cons
 Slightly fewer microgames than the original; the unlockable goodies are kinda lame.

The WarioWare series is really the ideal portable game -- they're incredibly easy to pick up and play for two minutes, but engrossing enough to keep you occupied for hours.

I`m even more sold!

As long as Michael "No one else will hire me since Ed went off the air" Ian Black is part of those VH1 retrospective shows, I refuse to watch.  I don't think there is a less-amusing "comedian" (and I use that term loosely) alive.  I've never seen anyone so smugly impressed with their own cleverness.


 I`m wasn`t really a fan of him, let`s say. But he did grow on me. SOme things he says are funny. For me at least.
2335  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / BEST.WEEK.EVER. on: February 15, 2005, 03:46:56 AM
LOL. I guess that would sound confusing if you didn`t know it was a show and that was the title. It`s on friday at 11pm I think on vh1. They also reair it all through the week. Seriously... if you watch you WILL like it. Well , you sure as hell should :wink: .

IGN gave it a 8.5 and gamespot gave it a7.5. There`s alot of glowing reviews of it out there. I`m still grabbing it. It`s like everything I expected.


Gamespot gave it a 7.2 actually, citing that the "touching" is repetitive and "boring" and the game is very short. "With the constant poking, dragging, and drawing these contests throws at you, it's easy to get good at them awfully fast. If you're cool under pressure, were any good at the previous WarioWare games, and are handy with a stylus, you'll get through the entire game in around an hour and a half."

I think I'll pass on this one.


 I`m not trying to convince you about anything, and now that is out of the way :wink: . Sorry you`re  correct about the 7.2 instead of 7.5 my bad. Not much of a difference IMHO though. Anywho...with the gba wario ware games I beat it really fast too,and I`ve had it for a year or more, and I still play it!!! ALOT!!!
 Plus these guys over at gamespot are NUTS!!! Wario ware for gba pretty much was the same thing over and over again too. Press A, or press left then right and so on.
 I agree it`s like tetris etc. you don`t quit when you beat it. It`s just fun to play over and over and over again.
 I`m not usually thinking like this but ...gamespot seems to dislike two things, xbox and ds. For what reason I do not know( I could certainly guess though). I always look at gamerankings and go by that. Plus I have watched the movies for this game and it looks just like I`d imagine. And I`m assuming it will play just like that too. I`ll be grabbing this tomarrow if I can find it, I`ll post back when that happens. Later.
2338  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / ATI or Nvidia? on: February 14, 2005, 10:06:29 AM
Plus these geforce 6 cards are nice!!!
2339  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / ATI or Nvidia? on: February 14, 2005, 10:05:25 AM
I didn`t want to sound like I hate ATI, I certainly don`t. i had a 9800pro before this 6800gt...I liked both. But the switch across from ATI to Nvidia can go smooth and then not so smooth without a reinstall etc. Some people I`m sure would agree with both sides. I`ve seen both happen. Anywho...If you have and like nvidia and you wanna stick with it, that`s one less problem that *could* pop up. That`s all.

This show is easily one of my favorites. Anyone else out there interested in this show like I am. I don`t get it really. i`m not usually into pop culture stuff this much. But that show is damn fun to watch for some reason. I`m a huge fan of that doug benson guy and pretty much the majority of the people on there are funny. Good stuff indeed. Does anyone else just eat this show up like I do? :wink:

Our dog had some other issues recently but I won`t ever begin to get into this :cry: , but seems to be doing really good recently biggrin . Hopefully this continues.
 But anywho, we had our dogs teeth cleaned only because he was already getting something else done that required him to be put under. I`d ask the vet all kinds of questions just to be safe. Ask, ask, and ask more. It never hurts.

 Great visuals, gameplay,sound, pretty much you name it they liked it.

2354  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid.... Pinball? on: February 11, 2005, 10:04:07 AM
I wouldn`t quite say this... "Wow, I'm glad I didn't buy a DS."
 
 At least I wouldn`t and don`t.
 I have M64DS and it rocks. Next week wario ware is out. Another great title. Then there is animal crossing(SWEET!), lost in blue, Metroid, a few 3d zeldas I`m sure, viewtiful joe, etc, etc, etc. I don`t see what there is to be angry about.
 I`d rather see someone try to do new things. Otherwise we just play the same game over and over again.

 Noone seems to remember the ps2 launch games...icky. :wink:

2356  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / OXM disk has some great demos thims month!!! on: February 11, 2005, 08:38:08 AM
Well, after just a quick testdrive they both are good. SC looks ALOT better than the last cs game I think. I think its 480p and it really is a step up from the last game. And the new gameplay stuff is really welcome. Random cool things about this game: New knife attack, New moves involving throwing people from below by grabbing their legs, Great new nightvision etc, co-op over live!, spy vs merc gameplay from SC:PT but with new gameplay additions etc. Good stuff.

 And the UC2. I did like it but something made it feel kinda like an old PC game ot me, albiet with additions and great visuals. Something just seemed lacking...I don`t know maybe I`m just old and it`s too fast or something :oops: . I plan on playing it a bit more still though, I`ll check it tomarrow when I`m less tired and see how it goes and report back :wink: . Later.
