What's better than walking down a Japanese street? A Korean street. Korean girls are much sexier IMO. I was 2 weeks from marrying one, she was a crazy bitch though. smile

PA also claims that they have had EB/GS employees tell them it's their store's policy to not sell someone a copy of a game on release day if they didn't pre-order to teach them a lesson.

I bought it am I am having a hard time getting into (hence only on mission 3). Nothing seems to stand out about it, it's very bland so far, but I really need to give it more of a chance.

One of the reviews I read (Gamespot I think it was) said the animations were great. NO they are not, they are horrible.

Mine showed up today in the mail.  On the third mission so far.  It's been so easy a 5 year old could win without losses.  Hoping it gets challenging.  It makes the demo level look like Diablo in Hell slywink

Any RPG elements at all? Anything? Please?

Camera fixed so you can rotate more than a few degrees?

Jump to action option for the enemies turn?

(In other words tell me the demo is not a good representation of the full game.)

So far, it seems to be living up to the hype...

Metacritic

I can't wait to buy this game tomorrow!!!

sorry, but i think this is actually out on wednesday.  at least, that's the current rumor.frown

Aeris called.  it's going to be in TOMORROW!!!!!  I actually rickrolled with joy when I got the call!

Who's Aeris?

the Gamestop automatic calling system.

You named it(her)? How cute, and scary.

Can't say I am surprised, I really don't like Tilted Mills games and was quite disappointed to see they were getting their hands on the classic. I wanted to want this game, but the Games For Windows preview I read a few months ago turned me off even more.

I wish they would go back to basics, as in an improved SC2000.
2329  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Panzer Tactics DS on: November 12, 2007, 03:21:59 PM
I am hoping it's not like Adavaned Wars at all. AW has a puzzle feel to it, you need the right commander with the right units done in the correct sequence to win it. I am hoping for a more free form game where there is no right way to finish a mission.

Quote from: Frogstar on November 12, 2007, 02:51:02 PM

Here's another example.  A few weeks ago, I read a forum post where the poster, applauding Panzer Tactics' potential superiority over other military sims, said something to this effect: "I've waited years for a turn-based military sim that uses a hex-based map instead of the grid crap!  That really opens things up in terms of strategy."

I'm not certain what that means.  But I do know that the hexes used in Panzer Tactics are not exciting to me.  In fact, had I not read that post, I don't know that I would have ever thought about them at all.

Hexes provide a more realistic movement than squares is all. It takes 2 steps to move diagonal in a square based system compared to 1 for a hex system for example. Any serious wargame uses hexes. I still doubt that this game is too indepth, but hopefully it's a a good Panzer General II knock off.

Silly. The only way to show the company that you don't like their fees is not to pay them. A petition isn't going to do anything. If no one signs up for it, it will get dropped, but people are quite willing to sign up for it from what I have read, so it's not going anywhere.

Anyone who eats a steak above medium rare should be put out to pasture.

Agreed, but isn't that actually the normal way of way of eating steak in the civilized world? Any one who really likes food wouldn't have it done any other way. You wouldn't know the difference between a good steak and a bad one if you have to burn all the juices/fat out of it to eat it.

I dunno man.  The amount of people I see order it the wrong way is pretty damn astounding.

gellar

Don't make me post pictures of tapeworms.  I'll do it if I must.

Feel free, post away. You are more likely to get food poisoning from a number of things before you would get tapeworms from a steak. Their is no real rationale to your argument. It's the same with the whole "bloody" thing. It's not blood coming out of your steak.

A steak is considered a good cut because of its marbled fat content, it's tenderness, and it's juiciness. If you order a steak well down it removes all 3 of those things. You might as well order the cheapest sirloin you can if you want your steak well done.

Quote from: Ridah on November 08, 2007, 06:56:41 AM

I have a general Wii question: Do Wii games benefit from HD sets, or should I play it on my SD set? I've noticed some PS2 games can look not as great on larger HD sets (I have a 42" LCD), I'm wondering if it's the same situation for the Wii @ 480p?

Yes games look better (with the proper cable) on an HDTV in 480p. They don't look 360/PS3 good, but they look 100x better than PS2 games do on a HD set.

I may be a rotten bastard for saying this, but I couldn't give a fucking twat about the writers so long as I don't have any Daily Show or Colbert Report to watch.

I was thinking the exact same thing. The only thing I really care about is the Daily Show and Colbert and I hate the thought of going so long without them. Otherwise I couldn't care less about the over paid industry (although I hope the Office and 30 Rock survive this).

Christians don't really get made fun of. Fanatical Christians get made fun of. Its no different than the many Christians I have heard talk down about Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, or atheists. They may not publicly mock them or make Youtube videos about it, but the holier than thou attitude is still there. I just don't buy this whole "Christians are persecuted in this country" thing that you so often see on forums like this.

Secondly, I read that they have a 65 nm chip and are much more power efficient than the old PS3's and that they are even quieter.

According to Bill Harris:

Quote
First off, the reports that the 40GB PS3 are using 65nm chips are incorrect. Sony confirmed to Heise Online (thanks Engadget) that the 90nm CPU is still being used. However, Sony also confirmed that the design had been updated to consume significantly less power--from 180-200 watts originally to 120-140 now. That's extremely impressive, and it should make the new unit significantly quieter.

it'll be 5 in the main series, but somehow I don't see it being a 2008 game....

Weren't they saying (maybe it was Kathode) that they were going to get a couple of games out of the current engine? Whatever the case, an Oblivion II without the scaling would make me extremely happy.

Quote from: Turtle
This generation of consoles really can't support 1080p,  Technically, that's like asking your current PC to run at 1920x1080 resolution at high detail settings.  To get that you'd need a $1000+ PC at the very least.
