i hate it  - it cheapens everything just to know someone paid money to put a billboard in my face in an attempt to get me to buy something.

if the last supper were painted today, jesus would be drinking brand x wine, the tv would be displaying a logo for HOTTESTZ NEW NETWORKS and one of the apostles would have some trendy new article of clothing or gadget

Jesus only watches Fox News from what I hear.

Is this an exact remake of Tactics on the PS1 or a new story altogether?

Remake, with a few added extras.  The main addition is the animated cutscenes, which look amazing.  They also added 2 new classes and a couple of unlockable characters.

I got the impression the story is much more fleshed out through the cut scenes from the previews I read. They have a Jeanne d'Arc look to them, looking forward to it myself.

Ships tomorrow according to EB.
2285  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/8) on: October 08, 2007, 04:55:25 PM
FF Tactics
NWN2 maybe
and of course The Cheetah Girls: Pop Star Sensations (it pisses me off when people say the DS is too kiddy)

As others have said, I like it in a sports game, it makes it more realistic (especially driving games). Other than that, I rarely notice it, if I did and though it was excessively blatant, I wouldn't buy that product out of spite.

Not trying to be a downer on your week. But your excited about a game made after a TV show?! And after the past few years, not even a good show.

I'm afraid I have officially gained total hatred for the Ocean King Temple. It's a huge blemish on what is otherwise a very fun game. I know I have to go back at least one more time later on, and I will be dreading it. Definitely lowers the game from a 9 to an 8 for me.


And that's what I needed to know, I will be skipping it. I hate this kind of thing in a game, so if it drives you nuts, I probably would have quit after 2 tries to never play it again.

Well, if you are referring to the relaunch, I've been informed that we aren't going to make it for the 15th.  We'll have some stuff built, but we'll be missing that date unfortunately.  Just not enough time to build and properly test...

What else would I be reffering to? smile I forgot the 15th part I guess. Oh well, just looking forward to it.

Untrue.  In fact there were rarely more than 1 or 3 on the front page at a time. (at the worst)

That isn't quite true either.

As probably the lead bitcher about the games on OO, I tried to use that argument. Then I actually counted them and they weren't even a tenth of a page of them on the first page of EBG.

...Targets go they are horrible for having new games anywhere near release day.

Heck my Target almost never fails to have them on day one. Yeah I can't say they are perfect, but I can think of at least 2 occasions when EB told me they didn't have any copies of a game because I didn't preorder. So they are about even in that regard.

I shop at Target enough that I'm inclined to pick up most of my purchases there.  I never preorder and haven't had a problem getting a game on release or within a couple of days (I rarely shop for a game on day 1 anyway).

Target for me too. They get games on launch day in most cases and I don't have to deal with pre-order crap, lying employees, and selling me a game as new when they took all the contents out of the box and put in an envelope under the register (or took home to play themselves before release day). Plus EB is in the mall, I would rather not go in there.

Quote from: jblank on October 03, 2007, 02:32:08 PM

I'll throw some reasons out:

Fantastic Blu-Ray player, arguably one of the top 3 or 4 out currently, with infinite potential for improvement
One of the best upconverting DVD players
Unmatched backwards compatibility
Arguably the most powerful system, so that bodes well for upcoming games
Strong Sony library of games
Integrated Wi-Fi

Hmm, and the only thing out of that list that matters right now is the first. And even then, in a year or so you will be able to get a player for a couple of hundred dollars.

I've been playing Worms 2 everyday for the past 2 weeks. So much content and so much fun. Highly recommended.

How is it for single player?

That's all I've been playing. It's EXCELLENT for single player. There's tons to do and lots of variety in the play types. While you can play a quick game, I've been completely enchanted by the lengthy campaign mode and the highly addictive puzzle mode, where you are given limited items and are asked to fulfill some objective that takes a lot of creative thinking (as opposed to normal mode where you win by killing the other teams worms). As you play through, you gain points to unlcok other items, backgrounds and game modes. There's also a couple of minigame modes unique to the DS involving drawing and blowing, but I haven't tried those yet. The campaign and puzzle modes have given me plenty to do and present a great challenge. I've played a number of worms games now, and this version is easily my favorite. GET IT PEOPLE!

Dang you CC, I am tempted now. Another question for you, how are the DS controls? Using the stylus or not? This is another game I am not sure if I would want the DS or PSP version of.

If you want turn based tatical RPG Luminous Arc is pretty good. Not the best, but a fun game.

Harvest Moon Rune Factory is good if you want an Animal Crossing type of game with combat and dungeon exploring. Growing crops does get tedious though.

Etrian Odyssey is an excellent old school RPG where you draw your own maps. Kind of like Bards Tale. Highly recommended.

Picross is a good puzzle game. Lots of puzzles, and can be pretty challenging.

Pokemon Diamond Pearl is good if you like that kind of thing. I got bored after 10 hours or so.

Anyone those are the games that I have spent the most time with over the past few months.
