Target and Walmart didn't have it so I went against my long standing boycott and went to EB. 2 employess, one asked everyone inline if they pre-ordered (even games that have been out over a week), this is the employee I always seem to get when I go in. Not this time though, got the other employee who didn't hassle me at all about pre-ordering, he just wanted to talk about the game. I would go there more often if the experience was always like that.

Will probably be playing this all day, so I'll have some more impressions later tonight.

Where did you get it at? Doesn't seem to be out yet in this part of the country.

I guess I'll jump in here and ask about strategy/tactical games for the DS and PSP - I don't have either, but I'm starting to do a little research, and its very tempting to pick one up.  I know DS has the Advance Wars (I believe thats the right name) that people rave about, but is there anything else like that for DS?  And what about the PSP?

Field Commander is an Advanced Wars clone on the PSP. The only tactical kind of game I have on the DS is Luminous Arc (besides Advanced Wars, which I think is a bit over rated), which is good, but not great. Warhammer Squad Commander is a tactics style game that is coming out for both systems and looks great (especially on the PSP). PSP seems to be the better choice right now for that kind of game with the games KC mentioned. Although you can play the old GBA games on the DS, like Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced, Fire Emblem, and Ogre Tactics.

That said I prefer the DS to the PSP because I like the puzzle style games that come out for it and I like the controls of the DS much better. I have issues controlling action games on the PSP and my hands get sore quick.

If my (hypothetical) cat ran out into the middle of the road, I was probably the one who put it there.

Until you actually own a cat, you wouldn't understand what its like to have one in your family.

ah yes, the smell of the litter box, the shredding of furniture, the stepping on a coughed up hairball whilst walking to the bathroom in the dark of night.....

As compared to the little bitch lap dog you keep? I will take the cat.

2450  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy Tactics WotL? on: October 09, 2007, 01:06:34 AM
Wow, looks great. My only compliant would be that I wish they would make the in game graphics as adult as the cut scenes.

Going to go looking for it tomorrow in case the 9th is the actual in store release date. (Yeah I know I am reaching.)

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.
2454  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy Tactics WotL? on: October 09, 2007, 12:15:34 AM
Ships tomorrow according to EB.
2455  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.

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.

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.

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.
