2601  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psi ops help on: February 28, 2005, 07:11:50 PM
Yes there are but...the vents have a cover that need lifted to get into(or so gamefaqs wants me to think). So I can`t seem to lift the vent cover and move the box over at the same time. Only one thing can be moved at a time... :cry:
2602  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psi ops help on: February 28, 2005, 05:32:01 PM
Hmmm. I didn`t think of that for some reason...Judging by the faqs that isn`t the way to do it. I`ll give it a go though when I play next though. Thanks.  Does anyone else have any other ideas in case that`s not it?
2603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psi ops help on: February 28, 2005, 09:55:44 AM
I looked at gamefaqs but all the faqs were useless on this part anyway. SPOILERS!!! If anyone cares :wink: )...



 I`m very early on where I need to get into a dudes office and there are vents on the wall that you can move with TK, but I have no clue on what to do. I can lift the vent cover, but I can`t seem to find a way ot go into the vents. All the faqs say thats what is needed to be done, but not how to do it... Does anyone know what I`m talking about? If so, please share :wink: . Thanks a bunch.

The PSP lauch games are mostly shit anyway.


*cough* fanboi *cough*  :wink:

Seriously though, I don't know how you can claim the PSP launch games are mostly shit. I think this is one of the most impressive launch lineups for a system, handheld or not, ever.

Compare it with the launch lineup of the DS....now that was mostly shit. I bought the DS, not for DS games (since there are basicly none that interest me at all right now) but for the GBA games.

 
 They are all mostly shit imho. There`s alot of them...I won`t deny that. It`s the quality I think that will be lacking.

I think, in the end, quality software is going to be the deciding factor (at least for us gamers  smile )

I bought a DS at launch and have tried most of the games that have come out for it. Out of those I would say that only Zoo Keeper is a great title, with Touched and Mario having their moments (well, the mini-games in Mario anyways) That's a pretty underwhelming start--and this from someone who really wanted it to succeed right out of the gate. Looking to the future, there are a few titles like Advance Wars, Animal Crossing and Pokemon (NOT Pokemon Dash -- a proper Pokemon RPG!)  that are promising, but I get the distinct feeling that this will be another Nintendo platform where we wait for months in between quality games.

The PSP, on the other hand, has a very impressive lineup of games coming. We'll have to wait on reviews for many of the launch titles (I am particularly leery of the EA sports titles), but I'd be willing to bet that there will be at least a half dozen or so of the 24 launch titles that score in the 80-90+ range (Ridge Racer and Lumines being my top picks) After launch, the PSP has a VERY impressive lineup of games coming: Grand Theft Auto, Gran Turismo, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy (down the road) and a slew of others. I don't think it will be valid to say that the PSP doesn't have the "genre of game I like", because it will have plenty of games of every genre!!

And let me tell you, just wait til you see that screen!!! :shock:  :shock: biggrin


 I`ve played a PSP(at EB) it really just doesn`t do anything for me. I have a cube, xbox, pc and ds. If you noticed I don`t have a ps2. Most of the psp games are similar to what`s on the ps2. And I guess that`s just not my cup of tea.
 And seriously those launch games DO NOT impress me. Metal great solid card game...I don`t like metal gear solid(minus the 1st one) and while the games graphics are good, it just doesn`t look fun for me at least. The racers don`t look that good either, other than gt mobile. And that is really not my kind of a racing game. And then the other stuff looks blah.
 I`m not saying it`s a bad system...but for the price it`s going for, and the fact that I don`t want a mp3 players, movie players and moving parts on a handheld gaming machine...I just don`t see why many people are going nuts over it.
 I like innovation. The touch screen and the duel screens are really interesting. There is SO much potention here it`s crazy. I think even if most of it never sees the light, we`ll still see great amounts of new, fresh ideas. Add in my backlog of gba games playable on the machine and I was sold.

Well, the main reason I ask is that I don't have convenient access to my Xbox anymore, I am 100% Ps2 right now.

Thanks for the replies. I'll give it a shot sometime.


 I noticed that. You added me to your friends list, or vice versa. Then I never saw you online :cry: .
 Why no access to Xbox anymore?

I just grabbed this while looking for psi ops. I`m still looking for that, but this one is fun stuff. Great story so far, and the action/stealth is put together good enough. It`s not perfect, but it is pretty fun stuff! Anyone else really like this one?
2620  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Second sight 9.99 NEW at EB! on: February 24, 2005, 11:37:27 AM

I still have the 9700pro available. To tell you the truth I got it off of newegg.com and I`m not sure of the manufacter. I know that it IS a 9700pro128mb card. I still have the box it came in(not a big video card box but a shipping box they used for it),the cables, the instruction manual, and the driver disk etc.
 Here`s that info.

I want wireless without batteries and with rumble...Maybe it will be like a wireless mouse or beard trimmer for that matter. You know, you put it onto a charging base while not in use.

2626  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wario Ware touched (NDS). Impressions on: February 20, 2005, 11:37:21 PM
I agree with everything you said there. It is a bit on the easy side compared to the gba game. To be fair though, I did the same thing that you said with the gba game on a few of the games(going for ever without any challenge after a certain point). I just finished the main story stuff too with the wife last night. And I have unlocked some of the other stuff, but not nearly all. To me though, this is a game that I`ll play over and over again, even after everything is unlocked.

Also scott, there is a thumb thingie so you dont have to use the stylus

So every mini-game for DS games can use both the stylus and digital control?  All the Wario mini games, etc.?  I was under the impression that the games defined the control, and could do pure stylus control, or just digital, etc.  I'd bet a lot of the DS games make use of the stylus input.  Otherwise, just make it a GBA game.  I still haven't seen a great use of the second screen either.  

I just looked at the reviews for the DS games.  They all apparently suck.  IGN and Gamespot are very critical of the DS games it seems, as well as some other sites.  Maybe suck is too strong a word, but it doesn't look like a solid library of games at all.

I can't see getting a PSP if you already own a PS2. If they are close in quaility why would you spend $250 for a PSP plus $40-$50 for games that you may have already played, or are available for, the PS2??? It makes no sense to me. Unless of course you are a world traveler and then I understand.

The libraries are a bit different for one.  It is also nice to play in the car, at the gym, in bed, on the couch while your wife watches Apprentice, etc.  Also save me taking out my PS2 to play for 20 minutes, then spend about as much time cleaning up and putting it away so my kids don't get it.  There are tons of reasons to get the PSP for people.

I also could never sit down and watch a movie on a handheld device when I can watch it on my widescreen tv with surround sound. If I'm going to spend $20 on a DVD I'm going to buy a regular one for my regular DVD player and not a proprietary one for a handheld.

I can't take my HDTV and surround sound to the gym, or in the car smile.

Hmm, are the DS screens scratching? Ive only seen one extensively andit hasnt scratched yet even though it is from launch.

Scratching has to be a problem.  I admit, I haven't looked at the screen in detail, but the second you get a piece of dirt between the stylus and DS, you are in trouble.  All of the demo units I've seen have been badly scratched.  I'm the type of person that one of two scratches would drive me crazy.

Why only 14 or so games for the DS?  Hasn't it been out since November?  Where are all the cool DS games?  Is this another Nintendo product that people have to wait forever for each new game that takes advantage of the hardware?   It looks like 20+ PSP games at launch as a comparison.


 UG! Where to  begin ???:wink: .

 The DS has been out for only a few months...Don`t you think these things take time. The PSP lauch games are mostly shit anyway. Both systems will have good games in time. Plus the DS does have afew great games right now. I like how you say all the games suck because you read reviews at ign etc. Ign gave warioware touched a 85. And M64DS a high score too...
 And I have zero scratches on my screen...And as for the ones at the stores getting scratched...Everytime I go into eb or a store with a ds on display. Some idiot kid is jabbing the stylus into the screen...certainly not being used correctly...

Yeah , the GBA is still quite nice. But my DS gets lots of play so far. All the GBA games look a tad better than the GBA, and the two(well, 3 if you count the demo)are great. On par with what I expected. Could their be a  better  seleection of AAA games? Sure. Are the 2 I have great and original? Hell yes! I think Warioware Touched is amazing. M64DS is also fun, and the mini games are a hoot! The metroid demo shows how capable this DS thingy is, with graphics and controls. They set out to make something different and they sure did. I`m not nintendo fanboy, but this thing rocks. It has serious potential. If your not impressed at all by the DS, you confues me :wink: .  It`s not perfect but it sure is interesting and great so far and only looks to get better. Sorry to hijack the thread a bit.

I`m starting to wonder if scott sells these things... :wink: I`m starting to see why games etc. don`t evolve very much. Everyone bitches about anything new and complains about things taking a little time.
  I`m glad you guys can find some games you like for the psp, cuz none seem to look good to me. I`m not saying that the DS had a great launch lineup either...but saying the psp has a better lineup for launch is like saying the bigger pile of shit tastes better :wink: . And I still don`t see how you say the DS doesn`t use the screens good...M64DS mini games, Warioware touched...etc. You simply CAN`T play those games on any other system because they use the screens so effectively. Oh, well. To each his own.

I was gonna look at that. I always run 85 but it goes alot higher at certain resolutions. Up to 120 or so I think on some.

Your saying with my setup I can get away with that high in most games if not all? Does 2gb of memory make the difference? There`s not  much difference between the processors.
