1601  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo - doing quite nicely thank you... on: May 27, 2005, 07:51:32 AM

Again I ask you - explain to me how exactly they are in 3rd place?


Simple.  Remove the handhelds from the equation.


Gladly.  Now Nintendo only posts roughly a few hundred million dollars more profit than MS's home entertainment division.  Don't believe me?  You can download corporate earnings statements from both Nintendo and MS's website.  Oh wait, I forgot - fanboys like Rage don't bother to use facts.


Uhh you shouldn't be talking about "twisting facts" as others have already pointed out.
1602  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 the consol that wasn't a console on: May 23, 2005, 06:27:54 AM
Quote from: "T-Dub"
I think Nintendo is being the most realistic of all three of them.  Phoney machines, pre-rendered video, and a nice box (that is subject to change).  I am just completely amazed that the Xbox is only a few months away and there is NOONE being critical of Microsoft for not producing anything other than hype.


Umm is this your first E3?

You know, what?  I really liked it. smile  That midichlorian bullshit kind of makes sense.


I liked the ROTS allot too but thats still going to stay as a dumb idea on his part along with Jar jar. The force reduced to bactieria? No thats just lame.


"The Force reduced to bacteria" is also a very inaccurate description of what midichlorians are. Midichlorians do not create the Force.


midichlorians having the force or being what gives it is lame, period. He added this on later obviously since Obi-wan in the origioanl trilogy says nothing ever about it. It was origionally a mystical force that all life has that binds etc etc. Thats fine. Dropping in bactieria as the part of it was just dumb. It makes the whole Jedi/Force thing start to sound cheesy, just keep it the way it was.
1604  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 more powerful than the PS3? on: May 21, 2005, 02:20:49 PM
Quote from: "HankRaptor"
This is all nonsensical ramblings.. DONT MATTER who is more powerful, its all about killer ap.. you think Joe Sixpack cares about the tech specs?? thats why he buys a console instead of a PC.


True, when two guys are looking at the new GTA game in the store they are thinking "Wow look at the new GTA game", not how they wish it would have come out on the Xbox instead.

The dreamcast was AWESOME what happened there? it had no Halo or GTA THATS what happened.

1606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 Games to be $59.99 each... on: May 21, 2005, 01:06:59 AM
"INFLATION!?!?!??! HEY WONDERPUG! who do you work for are you an EA employee? You are 89% wrong. Gaming has been hit HARD by inflation. This is the only electronic product that hasn’t gone DOWN in price!!!! In 1980 a VCR was 599.99 today it can be had for 39.99. In 1980 a VHS movie was 89.99 cmon you remember those days,"

Err The VCR cost that much becasue it was a brand new technology at the time, just like DVD players were super high when they first came out. That always happens with hardware like that(See HDTV's today). Movies cost that much in the 80's because thats what the studios choose to make them cost. What happened? Hardly anybody bought them and 99.9% of people jsut rented. Now thay have learned their lesson with DVD which are much more affordable.
1607  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow FOR DS. *sigh* on: May 21, 2005, 12:56:53 AM
Quote from: "Ralph-Wiggum"
I think that certain 2D games could sell on the consoles, though. If another 2D Castlevania, another 2D Mario, or another 2D Metroid was made, I'd bet that it would sell pretty well. Unfortunately, I believe that only established franchises could do reasonably well with a 2D game.


As budget titles maybe, but not a full $50.
1608  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Perfect Dark Zero: First Impressions [IGN] on: May 19, 2005, 08:25:27 PM
I don' get the angst of "only 30 FPS" either. Forza runs at that I thought the game played fine. If its a solid not below 30 fps then I don't see the problem. People need to understand the diffrence between always running at like 30 fps and a timedemo of 30fps.
1609  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I can't find it anywhere, Is Xbox360 backwards compatible? on: May 18, 2005, 07:12:07 PM
Quote from: "Freezer-TPF-"
I'd prefer them to just design a slimmed-down Xbox1 unit for those who want perfect compatibility but don't want two bulky systems hanging around.


They didn't own the hardware or design of it with the first Xbox. Hence their problems of not being able to do this or gets costs down.
1610  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I can't find it anywhere, Is Xbox360 backwards compatible? on: May 18, 2005, 06:45:34 AM
Guess it could be that each game would need work done on it to make the title work right on the new system and they can only dedicate so many resources to it. Then I could be totally off base as I'm not a programmer.
1611  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.
1612  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.
1613  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.
1614  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...
1615  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.
1616  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.
1617  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
1618  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.
1619  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.
1620  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW -- Level 60 kills level 10 -- No dishonor. Huh????? on: May 04, 2005, 04:48:18 PM
So I guess the end result here that there are people who like WoW and ones that don't.
1621  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.
1623  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
1624  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 2? PS3? Revolution? PC? Check out the screens... (56k) on: April 30, 2005, 02:34:37 PM
Quote from: "Raintitan"
"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...

Quote from: "Bullwinkle"
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.
1626  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.
1627  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.
1628  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.
1629  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.
1630  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?
1631  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.
1632  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.
1633  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 - Design seen? on: April 14, 2005, 08:48:51 PM

1635  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 - Design seen? on: April 13, 2005, 08:58:17 PM

1636  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.
1637  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW 1.4.0 patch notes on: April 12, 2005, 12:16:56 AM

Quote from: "DiamondDecision"
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.


Quote
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...

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.
