1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Over 50% of 360 owners didn't own Xbox.. I have a seperate question. on: January 25, 2007, 10:09:46 AM
Backwards compatabilty has nothing to do with me never buying an XBox360, but the way  that developers were actively encouraged to ignore the platform. My xbox ain't that old, yet there is no releases, while the Playstation 2, a far older console, still has amazing title after amazing title relased. The Playstation 3 is so insanely priced that it is not an option, so I'll probably pick up a WII. Never gonna buy another microsoft console though.

I brought an American PSP shipped over to Europe on release, and had no problems with it. I'm one of the few who actually seems to use it a lot  :slywink:

I voted out, costs way too much in Europe. XBox 360 is looking better every day.
4  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Settlers 2 Nintendo DS on: August 31, 2006, 09:18:34 PM
I remember reading that they played the PSP and were amazed at it's potential. I've read many things about their interest in hand helds, so hopefully it will pan out. I wonder if bethsoft are doing a handheld Fallout. Would be great on the DS.

http://www.vooks.net/modules.php?module=article&id=10887

BioWare sent out a survey to its community members asking a couple of questions regarding development of Nintendo DS RPGs. Two questions were:


"Would you buy a handheld system specifically to play an RPG based on Baldur's Gate, Star Wars :KOTOR or Neverwinter Nights?"

"Would you buy a handheld RPG based on classic BioWare series such as Baldur's Gate, Star Wars: KOTOR or Neverwinter Nights?"

If BioWare get enough positive feedback we might want to assume they will go ahead with a DS game. Which is great news for those into Western developed RPGs, may even prove a good initiation for those unfirmilar with them because of thier console background in gaming. Just remember to treat this as a rumour until we hear further from BioWare themselves.

Looks great. Bioware are supposed to be doing a DS RPG as well, so with FF 3 out soon, looks like I will finally be using my DS.
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Expensive Fall/Winter on: August 19, 2006, 11:30:01 AM
No love for Sam and Max and Broken Sword 4?

Apart from those 2, NWN2, Dark Messiah and Gothic 3 are most haves. I'll also be picking up GTA:Vice city storys, though that looks like the only decent PSP game out the remainder of the year.
7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mod chips for PSP? Supposedly.... on: May 28, 2006, 10:54:06 AM
Using 2.00 at the moment, and I'm not buying any games that won't run on it. I have a decent liberary of games, and Sony's recent insanity and the PSP lack of upcoming titles means that while I'm very happy with my PSP, I really don't feel like been ripped off by SOny any more,
8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who won the Hype Battle? on: May 13, 2006, 08:28:41 AM
Voted for Nintendo, but this has to be the most boring E3 I can remember. Not one decent surprise. And Sony really don't appear to have a clue.
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So, uh, how bout the PSP? on: May 13, 2006, 08:23:01 AM
I love my PSP, but the upcoming lineup looks awful. Nothing there to make me consider upgrading my firmware. Not that I'm that bothered, as I already have more then enough games to play, especially with EMU's, but Sony really seems to have lost the ball.
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Space Sims in general on: February 05, 2006, 09:00:54 AM
I loved the Wing Commanders and Priveteer, but my fav will always be Tie Fighter. There's a decent looking one due next month from the makers of Sacred, Darkstar one.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - Release Date and Rating Announced on: January 19, 2006, 07:23:21 PM
It's a racing game. I prefer Burnout.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / King Kong on the 360 - defeated by darkness on: December 14, 2005, 04:10:47 PM
Thought it might be the band. I know Gate's has awful taste in music, but that would be sinking to new depths.

Edited to add, don't most telly's have contrast? Even my crappy 8 year old does, so it really shouldn't be a problem. And the band is really crap. Incredibly.

Edited again to add that I meant my 8 year old telly. I don't have a 8 year old, but if I did, it would be cool if he had contrast.
13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Are long load times killing the PSP? on: December 14, 2005, 03:50:26 PM
Yep. GTA is one of the fastest loading games I have, so that why it seem pretty good for you Scott. It access's the disc a lot though, so I do worry it could be damaging the drive. Between needless loading screens (EA are awful for this) that you cannot skip, and the inability to quickly access status screens like in XMen Legends, and the endless firmware upgrading, I do reckon Sony is going to need one hell of a killer ap for me to keep buying their games. I have a nice collection, and I have homebrew. Smackdown vs Raw could be the last game I get for my PSP, and I'll just use it in future for the emulators and movie player. I love my PSP, and use it a lot more then my DS, but at the moment the future looks bleak for it.

Edited to add that Sony seem like such smug gits, I really don't feel like giving them my business.

I'm looking forward to FF 3 for the DS, that looks amazing. I just wish they'd do ff 7,8 and 9 for PSP.
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madonna threw her free 360 in the trash! on: December 07, 2005, 09:20:32 AM
I don't see what's wrong with that. She says she doesn't play games, and doesn't allow her kids to play them either. It was stupid to give her one in the first place.

Be weary of the hard drive, it's not supposed to be very good.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EGM Review Scores - Jan 2006 Issue on: November 28, 2005, 10:27:10 AM
Very harsh on the 360 games. They can't be that bad.;
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Legend of Heroes (PSP) Impressions on: November 25, 2005, 02:22:46 PM
GTA is a great game, but I have to agree about the combat system. Truly awful. How it's getting 9/10 I don't know, as even as a huge fan of the genre I would give it 7/10. But then I'm stuck at the chainsaw section, and I'm fed up dying because of the control system. It's a love/hate feeling I get with all the GTAs, usually in the flying sections on the PC. Graphics are great, radio stations are fun and using customised tracks gives it the best soundtrack of any PSP game. Shame I can't listen to the mp3s though. I'd recommend it, but with huge caveats.

I also got Kingdom of Paradise, and it's lovely. It's a shame that it seems to be getting ignored, as it's really my type of game. Saving it for the holidays though. I'm thinking of picking up LoH and Raw vs Smackdown as well (or at least the wife will be as Xmas presents).

To be entirely fair, since this is the console GOAT awards, KOTOR 2 was a 2004 release.

On the PC side of the house however...


Not in Europe.

KOTOR 2. Could have been a classic, ended up being awful.

I have to agree with Dungeon Lords.
23  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How Spike TV Is Ruining Gaming Journalism And The Industry on: November 24, 2005, 09:44:17 AM
I don't get your reasoning about WoW. It is the biggest PC game of the year, and if it wasn't eligible last year, why shouldn't it be this year? And does anyone really care who wins a lot of the awards anyway? Who buys a game because it won best cast? I say congratulations to WoW for showing that the PC can still be a very viable platform to develop on.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Should I buy a DS or a GBA? on: November 19, 2005, 01:04:03 AM
I think Advance Wars is TB. Disciples 2, Heroes of Might and Magic, Age of EMpires, Jagged Alliance and Civ (not too sure about that one, but it seems fairly certain) are due out, but as I said, no idea if they are coming soon. I reckon a Fire EMblem DS game is fairly certain. And a lot of the RPGs should be turn based.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Getting a PSP - What's the one game I should get? on: November 18, 2005, 06:38:49 PM
GTA is great, especially if you haven't played GTA 3 in a while. The driving sections are great, but combat is a pain. Custom soundtrack is great as well, and the radio stations are very funny. I'd also recommend X-Men legends as it's like having Diablo on a handheld. Lot of replayability and  a great selection of powers. Kingdom of Paradise is supposed to be quite good from what I've read, and I'm tempted to pick it up. Legend of Heroes sounds like your typical underachieving turn based RPG, and the reviews have been very mixed.
26  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / SUPERMAN RETURNS TEASER TRAILER - HOLY CRAP!!! on: November 18, 2005, 06:24:52 PM
It's funny how Marvel have made so many different superhero films, (Ghost Rider, Blade, Daredevil, Hulk, Spiderman, X-men, Punisher, and I'm sure there's a few I missed) that DC seems to rely on Batman and Superman so much. How's about a Green Lantern film, or a question one (love the JL cartoon, one of the best things on tv), or Flash. I know that there's a Wonder Woman one on the way, but I think that will go the same way of Catwoman and Electra.  

And Kate is on the new cover of Total Film, and she looks incredibly young and nothing like Margot Kidder. Must be some great makeup she uses.
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Should I buy a DS or a GBA? on: November 18, 2005, 01:23:11 PM
Given the choice between the DS and GBA, it's gotta be the DS. Thought personally I think the PSP is the handheld worth having. GTA is great fun, and there is a lot of great games out for it now. Admittedly there is no 'must have' game for it, but I don't think there's one for the DS either. The DS has a great future though, I just wish FF 3, Heroes of Might and Magic, Civ, Jagged Alliance, Disciples and the Children of Mana were coming out soon.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why MUST you have it on release day? on: November 17, 2005, 06:38:41 PM
Quote from: "Starshifter"
Because life is too short to wait.  Anything can happen on any given day.  You only live once.  Enjoy it now! biggrin


Isn't this a argument against playing console games? I can't wait for the damn thing to be released so we will finally be finished with the hype, then I remember we will have to go through it all over again with the new Playstation.
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I will NOT finish Call of Cthulhu or review it. on: November 16, 2005, 09:32:29 AM
Look's like Edge might have been right in their review. Let's hope the PC version is fixed.
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Psp games impressions? on: November 14, 2005, 05:19:11 PM
Isn't Kingdom of Heaven also out? That's 2 RPGs in a week. I'm tempted by both, but will definitely wait for reviews. I'm looking forward to Raw/Smackdown as well, but with the death of Eddie Guerrero I'm not as eager as I once was.
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Psp games impressions? on: November 14, 2005, 10:14:10 AM
I got GTA:LCS this weekend, and it's great. If you like GTA 3, you'll love this. Speeding through the city on motor bikes is great fun, and I really don't understand the complaints about the controls. The radio stations are very funny, even if most of the music isn't too my taste, and the loading times are minimal. I still think XMen Legends is the best PSP game for protracted playing sessions, but GTA is now my 2nd favorite PSP game. Great times for the PSP, I can actually look forward to Christmas this year (PC and consoleless for a month)
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox vs Xbox 360 on: November 09, 2005, 08:02:05 PM
To be honest I've never seen the new one. I just assumed it would be a lot smaller, as the XBox is huge.
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Psp games impressions? on: November 09, 2005, 07:59:40 PM
Good list of games there. I'd also recommend picking up Burnout Legends. Great fun, although you do end up dieing a lot later on due to pixalation. Xmen is a great game as well, showing what a waste of money Untold Legends was.
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox vs Xbox 360 on: November 09, 2005, 07:55:30 PM
Xbox would win any day, it's twice the size of the 360
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The DS is having the best 6 months of any console in history on: November 09, 2005, 07:47:25 PM
Not that impressed myself, but I'm really enjoying X-Men Legends on PSP. I personally can't wait for Fire-Pro DS, as the GBA version is my all time favorite handheld game. Upcoming games look good though:

37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Back & Forth, Back & Forth - No 360 for me... on: November 03, 2005, 09:10:41 AM
Quote from: "Greggy_D"
Quote from: "sclick"
I ordered a 360 from Amazon when they put up a non-bundle version for a few hours. Of course, they canceled those orders once they realized there was some overpriced bundles to be sold.



Are you serious?  Did Amazon really do this to everyone who ordered the standalone console?


Personally, I'm not getting a 360 until late next year...maybe not at all.  I'm going to see how it stacks up against the PS3 and the best console wins.  I haven't been overly "wowed" by the 360 anyway.  Everything I've seen looks like PC graphics from a year or two ago.


Amazon might have no say in this, at least looking at what's happening in Europe.

http://uk.gizmodo.com/2005/11/01/xbox_360_retail_bully.html

'Gizmodo’s new Norwegian correspondent SilverSnake sends shocking—shocking!—news about Microsoft’s Xbox 360 retail marketing demands. Retailers in the land of King Herald V are each being alloted a supply of 20 consoles, 6 core editions and 14 premium versions. But there is a catch: In order to get all of them, each shop or chain has to sign an agreement saying that they will sell out of all 20 consoles on the release date (which is December 2 over there). On top of that, the retailers must agree to sell a minimum of 2 games per console.

“Microsoft Norway even said them selves that they’re gonna use the ‘Sold Out’ as a marketing strategy to hype the console.”'

I'm shocked.

Not a bad idea. Wouldn't compete with WoW on PC, and would put the XBox 360 on the map. I'd just love a Starcraft 2, could be the game to get me back into RTS.
40  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ok so when is the danged launch list going to be released??? on: October 28, 2005, 09:37:45 AM
http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=61443

Eurogamer has learned that the website for USK, Germany's videogame ratings board, is displaying a list of all the Xbox 360 titles it's been testing since the end of August.

While developers can submit betas for testing, they must have exactly the same content as the final version - which means the list gives us a pretty good idea of which games are completed or very near to completion. And therefore, of course, which games are likely to launch alongside the 360 when it hits Europe on December 2.

Good news for Kameo fans, first of all: Rare's ace-looking action adventure was submitted for testing all the way back on August 15, so it's bound to be ready for launch. As is Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, Ridge Racer, NHL 2K6 and NBA 2K6 - all of which were tested in September.

Then on October 4, USK tested Project Gotham Racing 3 - so it looks like Bizarre's latest racer will be here on launch day, despite whatever rumours you might have heard to the contrary. It's likely to be joined by Peter Jackson's King Kong, Call of Duty 2 and GUN - all done and dusted by the middle of October.

Final Fantasy XI was tested on October 21, and this week they've been busy with FIFA 2006 and Dead or Alive 4.

In addition, a whole bundle of Xbox Live Arcade games have been tested, including Bejewelled, Zuma, Hearts and Hexic, the Alexey Pajitnov-created puzzler that will come pre-installed on the Xbox 360 hard drive.

But there's one title that's conspicuous by its absence: Rare's much-hyped shooter, Perfect Dark Zero. Could this mean that PD0 won't be finished in time for launch? Or are they just cutting it a bit fine?

Who can say? All we know is we'll be keeping a close eye on the USK website for as long as it's still publishing such interesting dates...
