2201  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Zelda Project! on: October 17, 2005, 07:08:04 PM
Quote from: "Dafones"
but few people ever realized that you can save the game as you are at any time. That's what the owls were for - they saved your exact progress, down to the minute, whenever you wanted to. You just had to remember to save the game in this manner before you turned off the system, or warp back to the beginning. It's like a whole mob of people never even understood this, and the game got hammered because of it.


I understood/understand it perfectly, and completely loathe it. It's a savepoint that's not really a savepoint. If you're going to limit me with savepoints (and boy do I have a rant about lazy programmers continuing to make console gamers put up with them, but that's another post...) then MAKE THEM SAVEPOINTS! Meaning, don't make them go away when I reload. On the other hand, if you want me to be able to exit the game when I want and pick up when I left off, understanding that I will not have that save point when I resume, that's ok too, but don't LIMIT WHEN I CAN DO IT!!! I'll take one restriction or the other, but not both. Coupling the crappy save system with a freaking time limit, just makes the whole experience stressful for me.
2202  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Zelda Project! on: October 17, 2005, 05:52:28 PM
I played all but Ocarina and MM on the original systems. I played Ocarina on an emulator originally and have played it on the gamecube since then. I also have played all the others on the cube as well. The only one I haven't finished is Majora's Mask, which I find hard to play due to the awful save system. I really need to play an emulated version of that so I can finally win it though. Zelda 2 I haven't one on the cube, but did win on the NES.
2203  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DS questions on: October 17, 2005, 02:12:08 AM
A couple comments on battery life. I definitely notice the DS needs charging more than my GBASP did. But, that's when playing DS games. Playing GBA games doesn't seem to be a big drag on battery life. (Reasonable since only one screen is lit when playing GBA games.)
2204  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 27 New Oblivion Screens!!! on: October 16, 2005, 04:07:16 PM
WOW! Never have I seen TEXT so well rendered!!!  Tongue

Seriously, I thought the actual graphic screen shots looked great. And, much more aesthetically pleasing than I found Morrowind's browns and greys.

Alas, my puny Athlon 1400 is not going to cut it for this one! I need a lucky Mt Dew cap!!!!

I'll ask what I asked in another thread:

are they going to change the way NPC conversation works in this game? One of my main gripes the TES games is the stupid hyperlink chat system with every character in a town basically having the same 30 keywords/responses with like 2-3 unique ones.

Quite sure. slywink

I did say PC version. smile Having said that, I am sure a change at EB is forthcoming.
2207  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MY Oblivion thread!!! Non-sticky! All invited! on: October 12, 2005, 09:22:49 PM
It's interesting that neither EB nor Gamestop have moved the PC release date to 12/5... yet.

EDIT: OOPS! Gamestop has. Not yet for EB.
2208  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (10/10) on: October 11, 2005, 06:22:16 PM
Wow. Gamespot gave Phoenix Wright a 8.8!!!
2209  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / First game you ever played on the PC? on: October 10, 2005, 09:22:43 PM
Jumpman was one great game.
2210  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / First game you ever played on the PC? on: October 10, 2005, 07:31:02 PM
Brickout at the end of an Apple 2+ tutorial. It was Breakout turned on its side basically.

Soon to be followed by classics like Lemonade Stand and OREGON TRAIL~!
2211  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [ DS ] Castlevania impressions on: October 08, 2005, 05:44:20 PM
So, do you like it? smile

Despite the fact that I have been gaming for nigh on more than 25 years, I have never played any Castelvania game. Would this game be a good starting point, or should I pick up the various GBA games first? (I think the Aria of Sorrow is the prequel to this DS game right?) Should I bother with the NES Classic original Castlevania?
2212  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Detailed impressions of Oblivion from X05 on: October 06, 2005, 09:51:33 PM
LOL! Hetz is certainly enthusiastic. Wasn't it Morrowind talk on Gone Gold that caused the Road to Gold forum to be created in the first place?

I'm intrigued by Oblivion, but I'm always intrigued by the Elder Scrolls Games, and they always end up disappointing me. Unless I get a lucky Mt. Dew, I won't own anything that will play this one anyway.

Hey Hetz, are they going to change the way NPC conversation works in this game? One of my main gripes the TES games is the stupid hyperlink chat system with every character in a town basically having the same 30 keywords/responses with like 2-3 unique ones.
2213  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: October 05, 2005, 10:02:19 PM
Using the Open GL 2 plugin worked. Now, my only small problem is some slowdown entering, exiting, and (occasionally) during combat. Nothing too bad.

Thanks for the help!
2214  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: October 05, 2005, 07:17:44 PM
Thanks. I wasn't using the v2.xx of Pete's Open GL driver (JCC = stupid). I have installed it, but will have to wait till after work to give it a try.
2215  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: October 05, 2005, 04:56:31 PM
Ok, I finally remembered to bring home my FFVII discs from my girlfriend's house. It seems to emulate fine except when entering combat? The whole "blur screen effect" doesn't happen and the sound effect slows down and then it transitions into combat slowly. I have tried tweaking settings from "Fast" to "Nice" and haven't been able to get this to work. Is it working ok for anyone else? Care to share your settings?
2216  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy 3 for DS in 2006/FF5 and FF6 for GBA announced on: October 05, 2005, 04:14:59 PM
Ok, so this is probably retreading old, tired, matted, worn out, stomped down, flattened ground, so I apologize in advance. Can someone please lay out to me exactly what the FF#s mean in terms of Jap vs. US releases? I am pretty sure that FF3 in the US for the SNES was really FF6 in Japan, but what about the others? (My understanding is that from 7 on, we've been in sync.)
2217  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bethesda guarantees Oblivion for XBox 360 launch on: September 30, 2005, 12:44:36 AM
I hope they aren't forced into releasing it early. Bethesda's track record is not exactly exemplary in this area. Although, i seem to remember Morrowind being pretty stable upon release.

Of course, I don't own a system that can play this new beast, unless I got a lucky Mt Dew cap today! smile
2218  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Best Game You've Played This Gen? on: September 26, 2005, 01:53:17 PM
Eternal Darkness hands down. My favorite game since Thief 2. If an Eternal Darkness sequel is ever released (I doubt it, and screw all of you who didn't buy it. I hate you.) I would buy the system it's for, no questions asked.

I hope Zelda Twilight Princess might dethrone it.
2219  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 Question: Backwards Compatability for Live games? on: September 26, 2005, 12:12:02 PM
I think this might be the ~$20 HD switcher.
2220  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: September 23, 2005, 04:31:39 PM
Yes, I may take that step next and see how that works for me. Thanks for the tip!
2221  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: September 23, 2005, 03:55:31 AM
I do own a playstation and FF7 (although my FF7 discs aren't at home at this moment).

I tried getting this thing to work with Blood Omen. While it will run, I just can't get the speed quite right. I had to use my DVD-RW. My 52xCD-ROM just couldn't keep up, which seemed odd to me. With no FPS limiting, the opening movies play nicely. But then, after Kain is killed the movie where he turned into a vampire plays to quickly. If i limit the FPS, then the 2nd movie plays ok, but the first is too slow.

I also had some odd graphical oddities at times. I have never had luck with PSX emulators, dating back to Bleem. Oh well, I probably don't have time to play FF7 now, anyway, but I was intrigued about being able to play it with slightly better graphics. Thanks for the help.
2222  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: September 23, 2005, 02:12:41 AM
Yikes. It actually took me far too long to find it. I overcomplicated the search.
2223  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: September 23, 2005, 01:43:44 AM
Ok, so to use ePSXe, I have to somehow extract my BIOS from my playstation? That sounds awful compelkated.
2224  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone replaying FF7? on: September 22, 2005, 10:05:37 PM
Can anyone recommend a good PS One emulator?
2225  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo DS Demos downloadable off Revolution? on: September 21, 2005, 12:25:49 AM
I think it would be neat if Nintendo extended their "download old Nintendo games" to the DS as well as Revolution. How cool would it be to be able to dload a library of NES and SNES to the DS? I would love that, and gladly pay for some sort of subscription service if the library was big enough. I actually see this being more attractive for the DS than for Revolution.
2226  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? on: September 20, 2005, 01:06:52 AM
Quote from: "unbreakable"
1. Ultimate Spiderman isnt coming out for the 'Cube?
2. Is it based on the really great Spiderman 2 game engine?
3. is the PC version going to be a port of the console game?  It wasnt with Spiderman 2, and I heard it really sucked on the PC.  So a port would be a really good thing.


1. It is coming out for the cube (this week).
2. I believe it is, though obviously has a very different look to it.
3. Don't know.
2227  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The real Revo controller on: September 16, 2005, 04:53:44 PM
I find myself getting more and more excited about this controller. First off, those videos are almost certainly not indicative of how you will actually use the controller. I think you will likely have the "remote" sitting in your hand with your hand on an armrest or on your lap (like it would be today) and will be making slight motions of the wrist to control it. So I really don't see the motion aspect being fatiguing at all. The problem is controlling its buttons. I think they need to stick primarily to using the trigger (the remote does have a trigger right?) cause I sometimes get fatigue in my hand just switching between buttons on my TV remote. That is something I am concerned about much more than just doing the motion aspect of it.

The door is so wide open with this controller (if it works well) for them to have games that just don't work on consoles now. (Tons of PC-like games). It *should* be the best way to play a FPS on a console.

The keys are : A. they better have the tech down so that it feels "right" and isn't awkward to motion-control. B. You better be able to callibrate the motion detectors so they can be as sensitive/insensitve as gamers want. In fact they should store multiple "controller profiles" on each Revolution so person A and person B don't have to adjust the sensitivity when they switch. and C. Actually do fun things with it that just can't be reproduced on other consoles.

I also think it's key that this be at a low price point ($200 max). It would help to actually have a lot of titles at launch for once too.

As for me, like with any Nintendo console - Call me when Zelda is out for it, and then I'll take a look! smile
2228  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The real Revo controller on: September 16, 2005, 04:15:04 AM
Well, it would seem that Revolution WILL certainly live up to its (former) name. Will it actually be *good*? Hmmm.

At least I'm intrigued rather than horrified (just mildly scared). I agree that there will probably be an even further dearth of 3rd party support for this console. Not that the developers won't support it (I think almost all of them WILL try to), but that they aren't going to have the resources to support it a LOT. The Rev will definitely be all about exclusives - since even if the games are out for other consoles, I can't imagine that they will possibly play anywhere close to the same at all to the Rev version.

Nintendo has balls the size of grapefruits. I'll give them that.
2229  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xenosaga 3, Baten Kaitos 2 announced on: September 15, 2005, 12:22:16 AM
What odd timing. I just bought Baten Kaitos yesterday and am going to start it tonight. Here's hoping I like it enough to get the sequel! smile

2232  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GBA Riviera Manual on: August 29, 2005, 10:07:26 PM
The game does have tutorialish stuff at the beginning. I think you'll be ok. You could always consult an FAQ to get some of the manual stuff as well.

Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"

When people get desperate enough to run the Chiuahuaha version out of stock, then I'll believe there's a supply problem.


I bought the Chiuahuaha version. I wanted a shelty like I had as a kid! My shelty Ally is ridiculously cute. This is defintiely the most soothing, therapeutic game ever.

For those looking for a specific version, try Circuit City. Mine had all 3 versions in ample supply and is in the same shopping center as an EB that was sold out.
2234  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DS] Nintendog impressions (yes I'm turning in my man-card) on: August 24, 2005, 02:10:50 AM
Picked this up tonight, and it is fun and HORRIBLY cute.

As far as I can tell you can NOT have more than one "profile" per cart. You can (eventually, when you earn enough $) have 3 dogs in the house at a time and store 5 more at the "Dog Hotel". (Not sure how much the hotel costs.)

The EB I went to tonight was already sold out. I got mine at Circuit City.
2235  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fable coming to PC this fall on: August 22, 2005, 09:19:41 PM
Have they ever posted the PC requirements? I couldn't find them on Microsoft's or Lionhead's pages.
2236  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone Have Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones Impressions? on: August 17, 2005, 02:46:52 AM
Picked up FE:SS tonight, and while still in the early stages (Chapter 2), after 45 mins. or so of in-game time, I am having fun.

My only concern is that once I have lots of units, I will get bogged down in party micromanagement. Hopefully with the convoy, this won't be too bad.
2237  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Man, Beyond Good & Evil really is fantastic! on: August 17, 2005, 02:43:56 AM
It really is a shame that it didn't do better. But it was released at the wrong time of year for such an unpromoted game (X-mas).

I will say that I enjoyed the early more action/adventure stuff more than the stealth stuff, but I still enjoyed myself throughout. Clearly they intended on a sequel (based on the ending). It's a shame it will likely never be made.
2238  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Zelda delayed :( on: August 16, 2005, 12:39:33 PM
Wow, what a kick in the nuts.

On the one hand, what in the hell is Nintendo going to do with no AAA Gamecube title this holiday? On the other, all praise Nintendo for bucking the trend of most game publishers and rushing a game out early for the holidays so the game can be done right. Few other publishers would do it.
2239  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo DS : How many stuck/dead pixels do you have on: August 16, 2005, 01:40:35 AM
I'd see if you could return it to the store you bought it from.

Mine is about 2 months old. No dead pixels.
