2241  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are your top 3 console games of ALL-TIME? on: August 05, 2005, 04:30:45 PM
In no particular order:

Adventure (Atari2600) - It created a genre, created the easter egg, and is still amazingly fun to play today.

Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past (Super Nintendo) - Still my favorite Zelda. As AgtFox said, it was a quantum leap foreward, especially after the wrong turn the 2nd game made (not that it wasn't also great).

Eternal Darkness - Sanity's Requiem (Nintendo Gamecube) - Coincidentally, I finished this game for the 4th time this week. This is my favorite game of the current generation, and I just think it's a work of art. Such fantastic writing, gameplay, artwork, and the unbelievable, scary insanity effects. Brilliant stuff. I weep for the fact that there will never be a sequel. Every gamer that didn't buy this should be shot.
2242  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Miyamoto on the Revolution on: July 26, 2005, 04:24:24 PM
I still don't get people's hatred of the GCN controller. To me it is by FAR the most intuitive and easy to learn. I have zero problems with the X-Box controller, though it is a 2nd place finisher behind the cube controller.

I loathe the PS1/PS2 controller. I *own* a PS1 and I STILL don't know which button is which. Fuck that Triangle/Square/Circle shit. LOL.
2243  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Miyamoto on the Revolution on: July 25, 2005, 09:35:22 PM
I wouldn't call EDTVs uncommon. I think chains like BB and Circuit City are still duping unknowing consumers into buying their least expensive plasmas which are EDTVs. I still see plenty of them.
2244  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Where can I buy the Nintendo DS bundle with Mario 64? on: July 19, 2005, 12:15:57 PM
I think that deal may be over. I know EB had dropped it 2 Sundays ago when I bought my DS. Good luck.
2245  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Resident Evil 4 Impressions on: July 19, 2005, 04:05:34 AM
Well, I am WAY late to the party, but I finally finished this one tonight. This is my first RE game that I have played for more than a few minutes. (Always hated the controls on the older ones. I do still have a borrowed copy of RE0, so I might give it another try sometime.) Anyway, given that, I didn't really know who all these characters were that Leon knew, nor did I know anything about Leon's past in the other games, so I didn't benefit from many plot points that were probably neat to more verteran RE players. Overall, I thought the game was not a great game, but a good game that was sprinkled liberally with several great, exciting sequences/boss battles. I thought the controls were fine here. I liked the more slower paced shooting. If I am going to play a 3rd or 1st person shooter, I greatly prefer to use a mouse and keyboard, so I was glad they made a more hybrid or original type of game here.

Overall, I found the game fun, if occasionally frustrating at times. Most sequences i had trouble getting by, I could usually conquer after a break away from the game. Graphically, it's certainly one of (if not) the best looking games on the cube - though I wouldn't have minded less grey/brown locations. The sound was great aside from some wooden voice acting. I did think the last boss battle was very easy, and (I hate to admit it) the final jetski thing frustrating (I died 4 times before getting it right). A very slick presentation overall, but the final cutscene was weak and very brief.

Overall, I had a fun time and will probably try to play it with that infinite rocket launcher sometime. smile
2246  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Need some console advice on: July 15, 2005, 09:25:34 PM
I've seen some ok looking X-Box bundles at Costco in the past. Probably spend more than $150, but you get an extra controller and 1 or 2 games with it for like $180 or something along those lines....
2247  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Need some console advice on: July 15, 2005, 03:46:15 AM
You'll hear all kinds of advice for system A, B, or C, but the best way to make a decision is to look at what the exclusives are for each system, and see which ones appeal to you the most.
2248  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Couple of KOTOR questions on: July 05, 2005, 04:27:03 PM
I couldn't really stop the ranged guy (Carth) from running in either, but later I had an all jedi light sabre party so it became a non issue.

Has KOTOR2 really come down in price for the PC? I still see it for $50 everywhere.

Enjoy KOTOR, it's a really fun game!

PS-Anyone know where Peacedog is? He's an old friend form the Gone Gold Forum.

He and some other Admins from Gone Gold created their own forum which basically mirrors the ones from Gone Gold. You can find them here.
2250  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Metroid Prime 2 $20 on: June 29, 2005, 12:08:45 PM
It says it's $50!
2251  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I have purged.......TIME TO BINGE!!!! on: June 27, 2005, 08:31:40 PM
The DS has 2 screens. They are smaller than the PSP's.
2252  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN doesn't even cover the Revolution? on: June 15, 2005, 04:12:55 PM
They cover it on IGNCube. I believe they said that since there is so little info out about the console and its games, that there is no point to giving it its own page. Probably later this year, it will have its own page. In the meantime go to IGNCube for the Rev info.
2253  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire the Masquerade Redemption - any love for this oldie? on: June 14, 2005, 03:44:12 PM
I really enjoyed the early stages of the game quite a bit. But, when you started adding party members I found the controls far too unwieldy, even when they patched in the ability to pause and give orders. Too bad, as there was a lot of potential there, but I couldn't get past my frustrations with party control.

I agree with you about the manual. It was fantastic.
2254  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No High def for Revolution on: June 14, 2005, 02:19:43 PM
Quote from: "Knightshade Dragon"

Won't this create a big pain in the ass for multiplatform titles?  They'll create all the ubermega highrez artwork all HD-pretty and then what, have to dumb it down for the Revolution?  

They'll have to do the same "dumbing down" for the PS3 and XBox 360 for the near 85%-90% of those consoles' owners who won't support HD.

As an owner of an HD TV, I am very disappointed with Nintendo's decision to not support it, but I really doubt that THIS decision will hurt their sales in any major way. (They'll take care of that by having a sporadic release schedule and crappy 3rd party support - again.)

2256  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Symphonia - Final Verdict? on: May 29, 2005, 05:38:42 AM
Thanks for all the comments!

I started this tonight, and while it's somewhat fun, I am completely lost at the combat right now. I'll keep plugging away.
2257  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Symphonia - Final Verdict? on: May 27, 2005, 06:30:35 PM
Now, that I have finished playing (the great) Thief  2 - Shadows of the Metal Age fan expansion, I am hungering for some console RPG action again. A friend leant me this a while back and think I am going to fire it up at last. Did people generally enjoy this one? Is it worth my 40+ hour investment?
2258  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo - doing quite nicely thank you... on: May 27, 2005, 03:47:46 AM
Apparently, the DS really saved their bacon last year. Not bad for a "gimmicky gadget"! smile (Although, it should be noted that I sure don't own one. LOL)

They have definitely fallen to a distant 3rd now, after possibly briefly holding 2nd when they were down to $99 and the other 2 were still $199. If the X-Box could do... well... ANYTHING in Japan, it would be far, far ahead of Nintendo.

It also looks like Nintendo has seriously downgraded their earning predictions for the next fiscal year due to the floundering gamecube. So, not all is rosy in Nintendo-land. Too bad. I love my little cube, but I wish Nintendo would do whatever it takes to get better (MUCH better) 3rd party support.

For now, I'll just hope the Revolution's controllers don't blow chunks.
2259  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Paper Mario free after $20 gift voucher at EB on: May 27, 2005, 01:47:33 AM
If you can buy Paper Mario 2 for $20, that's a steal. It's a teriffic game.
2260  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FATE Released. (Think Diablo 1 + Nethack. But pretty.) on: May 26, 2005, 05:11:09 PM
I haven't bought it (or played it yet since I can't install it anywhere but c) but I think you get like 3 unlocks for your $20. But, I think you can also plead to the main developer and he will help you out. If Wild Tangent ever goes under, then I think your screwed.
2261  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone Have Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones Impressions? on: May 26, 2005, 12:29:24 AM
Ok, I am puzzled. I have never played Fire Emblem, but the Gamespot video has me intrigued. I understand that the game saves after every turn, so that once you have a character die, there is no way to reload and try the battle again. (ie. you play in "hardcore" mode) So, my question is, what if your entire party gets wiped out? Is it game over? Do you have to start all over?
2262  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP/DS] Need help picking a handheld game on the way home.. on: May 23, 2005, 11:04:28 PM
All I can say is that Minish Cap is indeed a teriffic Zelda adventure! smile
2263  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Trailer on: May 19, 2005, 01:38:02 AM
I have been totally ecstatic about this game since E3 of 2004!! I wish they would have announced a release date for this one. I am paranoid it will slip into 2006.
2264  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pic of Xbox 360 on: May 09, 2005, 12:36:41 PM
Am I the only one who thinks the controller looks like a toy? Honestly, if that controller was for the next Nintendo console, I think this forum would be all over it calling it "too kiddie".

Otherwise, I like the look of the new X-Box.
2265  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution-info. WOW! on: May 07, 2005, 01:25:11 PM
IGN Cube's editor debunked Aries as a fraud. I wouldn't believe any of the stuff he posts, or at least not get my hopes up based on them.
2266  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [GCN] Gamecube component video? on: May 05, 2005, 03:40:40 AM
Just an FYI for those who may want one of these component video cables and is fed up with waiting for Nintendo. My LikSang order status changed to shipping today, so it would seem they really do have them in stock.

I can't wait to see Metroid Prime and RE4 in progressive scan in a week or two...or four! smile
2267  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / x-play on re4? on: May 04, 2005, 04:21:02 PM
Personally, my favorite G4 show is CINEMATECH~! Man, I love that, though they need to quit piping in crappy music.
2268  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [GCN] Gamecube component video? on: May 03, 2005, 02:34:48 AM
Thanks for the info guys! smile

Chaz, I ordered mine from LikSang. I have ordered from them in the past and had no problems. It's $5 more than from Nintendo, but at least I don't have to wait till June.

2269  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [GCN] Gamecube component video? on: May 02, 2005, 10:54:48 PM
Anyone here own and use the Gamecube component video cables? Does the upgrade to progressive scan really make a difference? I know the cube only does 480p so it isn't true hi def, but was wondering if p-scan alone makes a big difference. (I hope so as I have some on the way! smile )
2270  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GameStop Acquires EB Games on: April 18, 2005, 04:28:30 PM
This is a sad day for gamers. No matter what you think of either store today, you are better off having two options instead of just one.
2271  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / March Console Software and Hardware Figures on: April 16, 2005, 05:36:19 PM
I was curious so I went to EB's page and looked at how many forhcoming games EB has listed for each console.

PS2 - 94 games. (nice)
X-Box - 86 games. (I found this to be VERY high considering they are releasing the X-Box 360, THIS year. Well done.)
Gamecube - 22 games. (Seriously.)

#'s aren't everything of course. I am not sure how many of those 94 or 86 games I would actually want. But still, Nintendo doesn't even appear to be trying other than a couple of big titles.

Nintendo, you are a tough company to love.
2272  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Worldwide Console Sales Data post o' death.... on: March 30, 2005, 08:44:31 PM
Actually, if you want to blame someone for Sega getting out of the console making business, it would be far more appropriate to blame Sony than Nintendo.
2273  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DVD Tuesday - 03/15/05 on: March 15, 2005, 08:56:08 PM
Also today:

Red Dwarf seasons 5 and 6!!!!!!~!
2274  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Summoner 2 - another solid Cube title, any others? on: March 08, 2005, 05:17:47 PM
My faves:

Eternal Darkness
Metroid Prime
Skies of Arcadia: Legends
Super Smash Brothers Melee
Mario Sunshine
Simpsons Hit and Run and Simpsons Road Rage
Star Wars Rogue Leader
Soul Calibur 2
Lord of the Rings TTA

Currently playing Resident Evil 4. It's gorgeous, but I am not sure the game is great yet, but I am early on.
2275  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Iwata pretty much concedes next generation, kinda sorta on: March 05, 2005, 05:36:13 PM
Quote from: "Sarkus"
but it means they may very well become the Apple of video games - respected and known for quality, but only a fractional player.

I think they already ARE in that role. And, as long as they are profitable at it, they will continue to revel in it.

Having said that, when I read Iwata's comments last night, I had a sinking feeling. I see me playing my cube throughout the next generation, unless Revolution is better than I fear it will be, or unless MS or Sony actually come out with games I want to play.
2276  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Birthday gaming Haul!!! on: March 02, 2005, 10:38:43 PM
So every X-mas and birthday I always list a bunch of games I want for my family and usually maybe get 1 or 2 of them. Well yesterday, I got FIVE of them! I was actually somewhat appalled at the onslaught of games I received. If I could quantify my (already considerable) gaming backlog with a number, today I would have to add an exponent to it! Here's what I got:

Resident Evil 4 - (used with no manual... grrrr.)
Mario Kart Double Dash - FUN!
Need For Speed Underground
Mario Golf
Spiderman 2

2277  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GCN controller on the PC? on: March 02, 2005, 10:35:44 PM
Got my adaptor this week. I only have had a brief time to fool with it, but after some minor frustration and reconnects of the USB port, I got it working perfectly. Yes, both analog sticks are supported!!!

Thanks for the link GatorFavre!!!
2278  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Eternal Darkness: what a cool game! on: March 01, 2005, 06:39:12 PM
One of my favorite games EVER, and reason enough on its own why the cube rules!!!! smile

Have a blast! Remember if you win on all 3 colors you get the "final" ending. smile
2279  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / For the love of god: Help me find an RPG on: February 25, 2005, 03:21:48 PM
Honestly, looking at what you like in this generation, I would suggest looking at some more PC RPGs.
2280  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Just bought an N64.. on: February 17, 2005, 08:53:27 PM
When my gamecube to USB adaptor arrives, I am going to play MM emulated so I can bypass that HORRIFIC save game system. I am very excited about it!
