1601  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 Games to be $59.99 each... on: May 18, 2005, 06:41:04 AM
I would be surprised if it wasn't this much. Listen to the devlopers talk at places like the GDC this year. Game costs are skyrocketing. The next generation is going to be that mush more. You want those uber Unreal 3 engine level flashy graphics? Well open up your wallet then.
1602  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution pics!! on: May 18, 2005, 06:36:30 AM
I'd sasy I like the Revolutions design the best from simply the the standpoint thats its well simple and straight forward its nothing flashy but so what. The PS3 and the Xbox360 are two good examples of "over design" IMO.
1603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Playstation 3 on: May 17, 2005, 07:48:03 AM
Its either going to cost well over $300 or Sony is going to be eating allot of money.
1604  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Age of Empires DS turn based on: May 13, 2005, 07:59:04 PM
He said strategy title, not specifically a RTS(see the wish about an X-com game).


When I first herd about AOE for the DS I thought this could be something to get me interested and then I read its a TB game? Whats the point of the AOE name if its a TB title? Ohh yea lame marketing bullshit to mislead people...
1605  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst News! on: May 11, 2005, 06:35:03 AM
This was on the CGW demo disc this month. Never played it before so I guess this beta will be a good time to try it out.
1606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumored XBox 360 specs on: May 10, 2005, 06:16:03 AM
That seems like about as much as they could put in and still sell the thing for $300 without starting to loose money again.
1607  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution-info. WOW! on: May 07, 2005, 10:35:10 PM
I love the line of how Nintento has no intention of letting MS and Sony steal their marketshare. A news flash to Nintendo, Sony already did that...with the first playstation.

This whole back and forth e-mail thing sounds like it came straight out of that Reggie guys head.


All is well...ALL IS WELL!!!!.  biggrin
1608  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Can anyone recommend the Gamefly service? on: May 07, 2005, 10:27:33 PM
I think they are fine, and I live in Arizona. Occasionally there would be games, that took too long to "get back". Probably just sitting somewhare waiting to get checked in, but good speed overall IMO.
1609  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Forza Motorsport impressions here! on: May 04, 2005, 08:54:00 PM
The "not as good as graphics as GT4" seem to be just about the car models. I've seen other posters who have agreed with this but say everything else is better on the Xbox.

So I guess the end result here that there are people who like WoW and ones that don't.
1611  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Bored at 60? on: May 04, 2005, 04:44:37 PM
Although there are quests you can solo till the highest levels, there do seem to be more elite quests the higher you get.

The best point given in this thread yet. The wildcard that is going to make any system "imperfect". Human nature in the internet age.
1613  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 2? PS3? Revolution? PC? Check out the screens... (56k) on: May 02, 2005, 07:00:32 PM
I keep hearing this stuff since the showing of the cell proccessor. Everybody thinks the version shown is automatically the one that will be in the PS3. There's no proof of that. This stuff is like the PS2 all over again. People never learn it seems

"I am thinking they are all rendered or cutscene shots. No reason to think games on the new consoles will look any better than high end pc games now and even they don't look near that good in-game. "

Have you seen the system specs for the XBox 2 that leaked out a while back?!

(3) 64 bit IBM multicore processors inline running at 3.5+ Ghz with 1MB cache and the ability to process 2 threads per CPU. Add highspeed memory<->video bus. Factor in the dedicated hardware and optimizations (look at Halo 2...and remember it is running on a 700ish mhz Intel with 64 megs of ram) and it will run circles around PCs for a while to come.

The average enthusiast PC doesn't even come close to what the Xbox 2 will have and probably won't for a while.  

I think these screens very well represent game play.


Man its like deja vu again. It feels like the summer/spring of 2000 again...

That first shot I had me calling bullsh*t.  The second shot makes me believe it.  THe second is clearly rendered, but it's damn good.  That first shot, though.  I cannot find anything to indicate that it isn't real world.


Its the person that shows it to me. The vehicles do pretty much look like a photograph, but you can still tell they guy is CG. Very good FF the movie like CG but you can still tell. Still very impressive though if this will be capable in real-time.
1616  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I just utterly destroyed my Xbox controller (Unreal Champ 2) on: April 29, 2005, 07:07:04 AM
I agree that UC2 is extremely hard except on novice. I alomst quit the tutorial because of that stupid "chimney jumping" stuff. Thats just annoying. I like the concept of the game but, and this will make me sound like a PC gamer whining, I really wished I could play the game with the mouse/keyboard instead. The biggest gripe is that I have to let go of the right stick to do things like switch weapons, jump, use power attack etc. It makes the game less fluid for me since I cant do that and keep full control at all times.
1617  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elixir Studios Closes its Doors on: April 28, 2005, 06:22:49 PM
Republic was a bettter idea than a game. EG was fun despite some problems. COnsidering the game industry these days I'm sure if the game had some license like Austin Powers or something it would have done better.
1618  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW: Casual Player = waste of time in PvP? on: April 27, 2005, 08:59:21 PM
Man some people just don't actually read about stuff on this board. You can get good points(your rank is your contribution points not just how many HK's you get.). I have seen people who had 3 times the HK's of me but not that much more in points because they just fight in places like Tarren Mill. If your in some mass of 30 players and you kill even 50 others players your gonna have allot of HK's but not that many points. Killing another faction by yourself is very much worth it for the honor system.
1619  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Quitting WoW - what's the best MMORPG for me? on: April 25, 2005, 08:39:23 AM
I get a big laugh at the people who say WoW has a less mature crowd. Give me a break people. Every single friggin online game(RTS, MMO, FPS) has more than its share of pricks.

You go online you are going to have to deal with those types every now and then. Just a fact of the online world. Not a fun one buts its the truth.
1620  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Quitting WoW - what's the best MMORPG for me? on: April 24, 2005, 02:32:15 PM
You realize the things you listed describe WoW?
1621  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution - touchpad controllers? on: April 22, 2005, 08:59:58 AM
Quote from: "Kevin Grey"
I think Nintendo is going to make a strong push for exclusive content for almost all of their third party products next generation and they are going to do it by introducing a new controller style that will make ports of games for PS3 and Xbox 2 very difficult.  By introducing a new controller type they are effectively ensuring any games being built around it are exclusive to Revolution.


The flaw in that logic would be I see there being less and less exclusive 3rd party content. Games are simply costing too much to make and will only go up. This generation has shown it even more with all the ports and multi-platform titles. Publishers need to spread out the costs. Only a select few first party AAA titles like MGS, Halo, Mario, Zelda can make it as an exclusive IMO. Yea they can make any games exclusive by the choice of a controller design like that(if its true) but how many publishers are simply going to say Revolution or PS3/XB2? I think thats a pretty easy answer.
1622  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Phantom Dust : Best Crack Ever?? on: April 18, 2005, 05:11:02 PM
Guess I have a a somewhat dissenting opinion. To me it felt like half a game(talking about single player). The combat was fun, but not the rest. The small area you have to keep running around in got old fast, and  the dialog and story were pretty lame IMO. Its as is they spent all their time on the combat then had to slap something together at the last moment to try in finish it. Just allot of unrealized potential as a game IMO. For me I was having allot of fun after the first hour but was bored and tired of dealing with the crap outside of combat after about hour 3.
1623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 - Design seen? on: April 14, 2005, 08:48:51 PM
Backwards compatibility is overrated outside of the hardcore gaming crowd.

Comparing JE to something like GoW or Ninja Gaiden makes about as much sense as comparing Splinter Cell to Painkiller because they both have guns.  :roll:

1626  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW 1.4.0 patch notes on: April 12, 2005, 06:31:37 PM
Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"


Rogues are incredibly useful, totally soloable, and the most lethal class in the game all the way up to 60.  They are far too good, especially in comparison to other classes.


That is simply false. period.

Your "experience" that you listed about playing Rogues just shows that you don't really have it, especially in higher levels. Playing one to the 20's means nothing. Trying out a higher level one is minimal. Play one all the way to at least the 50's then come back and talk(I'd say this about any class, becasue unless the person has then they don't know what their talking about).

They arn't the best PvP. IMO a well specced priest for example played decently is right up their as the best in PvP.

The biggest fallacy of all this PvP talk is that everybody talks about this as if its only 1v1 dual stuff. This isn't the reality of PvP for the most part(at least not on a PvP server) out in contested areas. All this talk is nothing more than "on paper" stuff which mostly goes out the window when you get into the game.
1627  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW 1.4.0 patch notes on: April 12, 2005, 12:16:56 AM

Ron, when can we expect a review?  Pariah has got to rule.  I hope your review shows that.  What I saw was just fabulous.

I also noticed that it comes with a multiplayer level editor that looks brain-dead simple to operate.  That's a major first for the consoles.


No its not. Timeslpitters 2 had a editor.

If console games can start coming out with level editors and the next versions of consoles can accomodate a mouse/keyboard,,, the PC is finally as dead as a hammer.


Uhh yea sure...
1630  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Diablo vs. Nox on: April 09, 2005, 02:48:41 PM
Only thing I remember about Nox was after figuring out to use the Harpoon attack combined with the charge as the fighter guy it made the game much easier.
1631  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Sales Numbers Revealed... on: April 08, 2005, 05:19:32 PM
Quote from: "HankRaptor"
I agree with you here. If they released a 149.99 system without anything but a charger, it would sell more.


Taking out the simple cloth case, basic pair of earbuds, and a 32MB memmory stick(ignoring the movie as that just a one time add-in for the initial release) isn't going to drop the price by $100.
1632  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Sales Numbers Revealed... on: April 08, 2005, 07:54:29 AM
Funny the comments about this being a poor launch or something. 600K in a week makes it one of the most successful launches ever. I mean if Sony had only made 500K availible and they had sold out would people be going "Wow the PSP is a smash Hit!"?
1633  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Republic Commando - what a great game! on: April 05, 2005, 04:11:33 PM

1634  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gamefly thoughts on: April 05, 2005, 04:08:42 PM
For me the usual turnaround time is 5 days including the days its sent/ recieved. Its not bad to me, and still makes the cost well worth it since the fee for 2 at a time per month is less than half the cost of a new game. Only recommend it for people on the west cost though.

I'll add that their "keep it" prices are pretty good too. Especially for new games a couple of months after they have been out. I assume that their cleaning out the excess stock after the initial rush of game rentals for the title.

I remember when the rumble feature was a gimmick; now people bitch if their wireless controller doesn't include it.  

I remember when wireless controllers were a gimmick; now I can't imagine playing a game without one.

I remember when HDTV support was considered a gimmick; now I bitch if I play any game that doesn't support 480p.

I remember when mature content in games was considered a gimmick to sell the game; now we have people on this board who call any game not involving women in bikinis and/or extreme violence 'kiddie'.

One man's gimmick is another man's innovation, but what do I know?  I'm just another jaded jerk....


You'll have to point out where all this gimmick talk about HDTV, and wireless controllers was because I never saw it. Those are cool ideas that make gaming better and its its to see how both of those would(ok wireless isn't about making gaming better just more convienent). Now the rumble features in controllers? Yea thats a gimmick.
1638  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Bored at 60? on: April 01, 2005, 09:33:53 AM
I've started to slow down at lvl 53 myself. About the only thing that I still really have fun with is PvP. I'll always jump in on a fight if I see one as its allot more fun than fighting a mindless mob. Was kinda bored tonite even after I had just leveled(it was like meh another level), but happened across some alliance attacking the xroads and had a good 30-40mins of PvP fun.

I guess I have some back of my mind desire to get at least one character to max level in a MMO. WoW is the closest I've gotten. Maybe I'll still do it.

Ohh well maybe the honor system and battlegrounds will get put in sometime...

1640  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP - When does Nintendo get scared? on: March 25, 2005, 11:39:29 PM
Quote from: "wankerjr"
Quote from: "Jumangi"
Price doesn't seem to matter that much if the device has that "it factor" buzz to it though, and I think the PSP can get that, and in some ways already has. You see it with people paying $300-400 for a ipod just for music. The $100 price diffrence didn't seem to help Nintendo with the Gamecube.



If the non-hardcore gaming market gives slight pause to the GBA's price tag, ranging from $100 to the current price of $70 (depending on sales & stuff), how much more are they going to pause at the $250 price tag?


Not sure you really read my post there. Apple is going to pass 10 million units for the ipod soon. Thats 10 million for a $300+ machine for playing just music. Of course the 10yr old market isn't going to be affected by this machine but anyone say 15 and older? I frankly don't see Nintendo having a chance there even with the DS. I hear people who are even gamers being wary of the DS and saying they are holding off unitll they see something really neat from the 2 screens/touch stuff. The PSP fits in with the general tech/gadget crowd very well with its sleek design, great screen and movie/music ability(granted its a medioce music player overall witht the propriatary memmory and no easy to use interface for management).

I'm not saying the PSP  will kill Nintendo in the handheld market in a snap. But if Nintendo isn't careful I do see the potential for Sony to take the lead as a whole like they did in the home console market. I just don't think the DS is going to be a big success.
