Quote from: "Knightshade Dragon"
I hear rumor they are shooting for the end of this year for a launch window.  We'll have that decision upon us soon enough.


Not a chance. Every site I see says it will be fall 06' at the earliest.

Don't see the problem with the specs. They are around what a mid-range desktop is today. In 18 months $500 machines will be able to meet those no problem.
1562  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Miyamoto on the Revolution on: July 27, 2005, 06:37:10 AM
Echo pretty much what Graham said about the GC controller. Its like Nintendo being diffrent for the sole reason to just...be diffrent. I'll take something like the S-contoller anyday(except make the buttons flat not rounded IMO).
1563  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Miyamoto on the Revolution on: July 26, 2005, 06:21:09 AM
He thinks the new Zelda on the GC is equal to whats being show as next-gen? He thinks the new Zelda matches something like Guilty Gear? Zelda is looking very nice visually but thats in comparsion to other current titles. Miyamoto needs to get some glasses.
1564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gizmondo on: July 26, 2005, 06:11:39 AM
So why would someone pay $250 for this when they could buy a PSP?
1565  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / EQ2 releases 12th live update on: July 22, 2005, 07:27:06 PM
Quote from: "Raven"
I refuse to play a game where the company promotes the buying and selling of characters and items.

But to each their own.


They were just admitting reality. It goes on in all these games WoW included.
1566  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PC magazines are too high! on: July 22, 2005, 06:58:00 AM
Not sure what people are talking about. The Gaming mags I get(CGW and CGM), are not %85 ads. Can't rememebr what CGM editor Steve baumen said over at Qt3 but the ad ratio was less than half the magzine. Pull out a muscle mag or Bride magazine it you want to see tons of ads.

If you have a subscription the magazines are about $2.50 an issue.
1567  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 3, What are you're expectations on: July 22, 2005, 06:48:14 AM
Quote from: "The Rocketman"
but in the end, nothing beats playing it on legendary with a buddy. I mean that. No game is as cool as that. And I've been playing games since Wolfenstein.


Yea co-op was another of the fun things about Halo that I wish more games had.
1568  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / World of Warcraft becomes the king. on: July 21, 2005, 06:33:02 AM
Its become The Blob of the MMO world...it just keeps growing and growing.
1569  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dungeon Siege II: Anyone care? on: July 21, 2005, 06:28:28 AM
Won't be a day one purchase but if the reviews and word of mouth are posotive about GPG fixing the flaws of the first game I'd drop money on it.

Strangly enough I just happened to channel surf by the TNG rerun with Scotty a couple of weeks ago.
1571  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Battlestar Galactica - 2nd Season on: July 20, 2005, 06:17:09 PM
If your "slapping your head in frusration" over somethng as minor as characters maybe being to lax in a certain situation I'd say someone needs to lighten up a tad....its only a TV show.
1572  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Diablo 2/Starcraft for DS, PSP?!? on: July 20, 2005, 06:40:35 AM
I'd like to see it. As a RTS player I have been wanting to see someone try a RTS on it too see how it would play. Wether the stylus would work well enough(Seems like it would) and if the screen would be big enough for it.
1573  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Battlestar Galactica - 2nd Season on: July 19, 2005, 07:38:18 AM
Quote from: "gameoverman"


For instance, coming back from retrieving the supplies, they were talking pretty LOUD.  The guy on point is not doing what a guy on point should do, the guy guarding the rear isn't doing his job....all in all, very unsatisfying.  


While I admit your waiting for something bad to happen to them in that situation and as soon as that scene started I was like "here it comes", I don't think it was totally out of place. None of those three characters are regular soldiers, there all support personel(mechanics and such) so that mode isn't "normal" for them so to speak. Plus they had made there way down to the site and were back up in the trees thinking there safer now. A minor down point I think.

The people who don't think the flood of illegal immigration isn't that big of deal don't live in one of the states being affected by it. Being a Arizona resident I see it every day.
1575  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Battlestar Galactica - 2nd Season on: July 17, 2005, 02:39:48 AM
Good start to the second season. Just when you think it can't get any worse for the characters it does.  smile
1576  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nice surprise from Gamefly. on: July 15, 2005, 07:31:01 PM
Got an email from Gamefly recently about a new service to help improve delivery times. They can tell when a game has been scanned in by the Postal service so they can send the next game out in your Que without waiting for it to be physically returned. I mailed a game off yesterday and it showed up today as being scanned with the next in the process of being shipped already. Looks like a good way to cut down on the turnaround times some have complained about before.
1577  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Fantastic 4 Movie on: July 09, 2005, 03:04:15 PM
Well in the last few weeks I've seen of of the best superhero movies ever released followed by one of the lamest. Its wasn't Catwomen/Elecktra bad but man what a disappointment...

Quote from: "unbreakable"
Hockey really is sorely neglected.  Where IS Bobby Hull (or even Bret Hull)?

Oh well, the NHL always was horrible at promoting it's status as a mainstream sport.  Hockey is superior to baseball in every way, IMO.


Yea thats why dog shows get higher ratings than hockey on ESPN.  :twisted:
1579  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Greatest American Rock Band on: July 08, 2005, 06:51:42 AM
When I see a band list with Peal Jam at #1 but a band like Beach Boys at 18 it shows the profound lack of taste in music so many have today. Also shows why 90% of the music I listen to these days is 20+ years old.

When I think about it MTV has been about the worst thing to happen to music ever...
1580  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sin 2 to be released via steam on: July 06, 2005, 06:35:45 AM
I don't see the problem with 6-8 hours of FPS gameplay for $20 either. I just burned through Area 51 and it took maybe 6-7 hours tops which is becoming more the norm these days(why I rent these games mostly). Hopefully they will include some MP stuff( Sin CTF was one of the more fun MP games out there at the time).
1581  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I think I'm too impatient to be a gamer anymore... on: July 04, 2005, 04:21:56 AM
Quote from: "DiamondDecision"
I'm just tired of the same old crap and having to play sections of a game over and over and over and over and over and over.


This is why a rent console games. The checkpoint save system thats prevelent in most of the games will usually make me quit a game eventually. I may be enjoying it up to a point but then a it some part that I have to do a certain set of things in a certain way or I die and restart and have to it again and again. What bugs me so much is depending on the points I have to play certain sections that get old fast over again before I get to the point I was at. That stuff can just kill the fun for me. Its like hitting a brick wall of frustration.
1582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox 360 vs PS3 hardware discussion for the day... on: June 30, 2005, 08:04:39 AM
Quote from: "Andrew Mallon"

As you said, you still need a mem card if you want to xfer saves or files from one machine to another. As for price, the PS3 will retail at the same price as the 360 or $299, whichever is higher. Everyone said the PS2 was going to be $399 before it was launched too. Retail pricing estimates for the PSP were way off as well.


There's no proof that the PS3 will sell at the same price as the 360, nor what the 360 will sell at itself. As for needing for transfering from one machine to another big deal. I'd bet about 1/10 of one percent of Xbox users ever wanted to do that and it also wouldn't be any diffrent that with the PS3 or Nintendo.
1583  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox 360 vs PS3 hardware discussion for the day... on: June 29, 2005, 07:34:54 AM
Quote from: "Andrew Mallon"
and the added bonus of me not having to buy mem cards for the system (I already have mem sticks and SD cards) and backup saves to my PC.


So? Don't need memmory sticks for the 360 at all unles you want to move stuff from one machine to the next.

From what I see the PS3 is gonna be more expensive unless Kutagari is lying about them not knocking the price that much below production costs. Even with the HD on the 360 the PS3 is gonna be more expensive to produce.
1584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone get BF2 yet? on: June 26, 2005, 12:27:55 AM
Quote from: "Harkonis"
heh, server was full before I got the email telling me my own IP address.

Last night I found a server with 11/64 and it was full before I could connect.  This game is insanely popular right now since it's so new.


Gamespy shows it at #2 right now with as many players as HL. With the people still playing the demo added in its #1. Not bad for being out less than a week.
1585  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Favorite board game? on: June 21, 2005, 05:17:45 PM
Game of Thrones-Really fun game mechanics, just wish they didn't hamstring themselves with the map as it makes the game unblanced.

San Juan & Puerto Rico.

Settlers of Catan. Fun game but damn expensive if you want the expansions.

Not a board game but had fun learning Warmachine. Not sure if I'll drop the bucks needed for my own units...maybe I'll just borrow other players stuff.  smile
1586  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Star Wars Battlefront II on the PSP on: June 21, 2005, 05:03:31 PM
Quote from: "wonderpug"
Quote from: "Jumangi"
Not sold on the PSP for shooters with only 1 analog stick, nub or whatever its called.

What if you sort of reversed it, and had circle/square/triangle/X as your forward/back/strafe movement, the nubbin for your mouselook, D-pad for weapon select, and R-trigger for shooting?  The analog vs digital input would be the same as a mouse w/WASD, but would it be too hard to get used to playing sort of left handed?


Guess it would be "playable" that way, although I am used to the reverse of that for movement/aiming in console shooters. Also don't really like the thought of using 4 seperate buttons for movement.

1588  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / OMGZ!! Sony will release defective cell processors in PS3!! on: June 21, 2005, 06:48:38 AM
Nothing surprising. Thats pretty much common practice with CPUs and graphics chips.
1589  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Wow! Not liking Babylon 5 so far... on: June 20, 2005, 07:45:59 AM
Don't bother with the movies. They range from ok, to crap IMO. Just felt like weak/cheap addons that didn't add anything to the B5 universe.
1590  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / SOE now has the license to develop a DC Comics mmorpg on: June 19, 2005, 03:05:48 AM
SOunds like SOE doing a bailout for Monolith.
1591  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Playstation 3 being the "Super Computer" why even on: June 16, 2005, 05:59:16 PM
The PS3 is not a replacement for a desktop computer. Its not a "supercomputer" either.
1592  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Star Trek Online: No Klingons at launch on: June 09, 2005, 07:33:43 PM
Just another game thats trying to cash in on a license like The matrix and D&D Online. Too little to late...
1593  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best of E3 Awards announced on: June 09, 2005, 06:34:31 AM
The PS3 and Killzone win awards? You would think they might have at least a minimum requirement that the stuff which wins actually exist in some form. Not totally complete obvioulsy be at least show thats its more than smoke and mirros.

I agree. Why people still want to latch on to this long dead horse is beyond me.

Quote from: "Rage"
I too, watched about 2 episodes of Season 1 and thought it was absolutely awful. I mean, terrible. A very very bad Star Trek knock-off.

Worth trying again?



Uh you do know that DS9 is a knock off of Babylon 5 right?


Babylon 5 in its middle years(2-4) is light years better than just about anything Star Trek except TNG series at its best.
1596  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo - doing quite nicely thank you... on: May 30, 2005, 07:05:01 PM
Quote from: "Temjin"
 Since Microsoft is bringing in the Xbox 360 this year, I think Nintendo might end up as number 2 this generation since they still have more than a year left with the GC and a new "non-kiddie" Zelda title coming out.


I doubt that. GC sales even in their strongest territory of Japan have fallen to almost nothing now. The DS was the reason they made money this quarter.
1597  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Retro Gamer magazine on: May 28, 2005, 02:48:51 PM
I've read several issues a friend got. A pretty well done magazine for people wanting to go down that retro path again. One surprise I got from it was how there are still a few people making new games with some of these systems.
1598  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Videogame voice actors to go on strike - not paid enough? on: May 27, 2005, 07:37:12 PM
For me bad voice acting is more noticable these days now that I have herd more quality work done on some games. I think for the most part it only matters for now when dealing with movie tie-in games, and getting the movie actors to do the voice roles.
1599  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / TV Shows Winding Down - Whatchagonnado?? on: May 27, 2005, 08:07:30 AM

1600  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / This season of 24 ended great! on: May 27, 2005, 08:04:05 AM
While the ending was stretching it even for this show, I like how they could use this as a way to change things up with Jack next season.
