2442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: IGN's Blue Dragon review on: August 16, 2007, 08:28:54 PM
I didn't think the review sounded too bad (IGN is a pretty shitty site IMHO, so their reviews don't hold much water for me). The following line, summed it up for me:

But for those needing a solid traditional role-playing experience on Xbox 360, Blue Dragon will fit the bill.

Anyway, it's getting an 82% on Game Rankings, I have played some games I had a lot of fun with that scored lower than that.

As I mentioned in that other PSP Slim thread, they also have the ice-silver Daxter Pack and white Star Wars Pack for preorder. 

According to the Toys R Us preorder page, the Daxter Pack comes with a 1GB memory stick, a Family Guy video pack and Daxter.  The Star Wars pack only comes with the new Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron game. 

Whoops, sorry I guess I missed your post, and a search for "PSP 2000" didn't turn them up. Thought I was posting breaking news. icon_frown

No TRU for me either, and I have it preorderd from Liongames for dirt cheap, so getting it early means making a second long trip back to TRU to return it when the cheap copy comes in. 

I was in Gamestop a few minutes ago, and they have them, but won't sell until next Tuesday.  Seems like it's just TRU breaking street date at this point rather than an industry-wide launch like some places are reporting.

And you know the damn Gamestop employees are taking copies home and playing them too. Bastards!

Talked to Gamestop, local and corporate.  Both are 'gathering more information' to see if they will break the date.  As it stands, their talking point is "TRU only got a few copies so it won't affect our sales in any way.  We are holding to our street date for now."  The 'gathering' and 'for now' suggests we might see differently very soon, but when I called TRU (a few here in AZ) they were RUUUUUUDE rude rude rude about telling me that "No - nobody is selling them.  Whatever you heard, you were mistaken."  I explained the pictures and gamertags and they told me that I'm just "completely wrong".  Wow...bad day?

Have you seen the people who were at TRU? It's worse than Walmart. biggrin

Thanks for the info KD!

Buckeye- You may want to rename your thread Bioshock: Impressions so that it becomes the 'official thread' of the console forum for it. 

I would say make this thread the "I got it thead" so people can post where they got it since everyone here seems to be trying to figure who is breaking street. Leave the impressions for an impression thread. I think I just about always disagree with ATB. icon_cry

May look in Target and CC tonight. Don't have a TRU close.

I don't use deodorant save for rare occassions where I can't shower that day. Unless I'm nervous sweating, my sweat somehow doesn't stink. Usually.

How do you know your sweat doesn't stink? I always had the idea that people who do have BO don't know because they can't smell it.

How does one go about doing the 15x15 puzzles?  I can't seem to find a way to get those large ones started.

Look for lines that add up to 15 first (like: 4-5-2-1). If none of those, then look for a line that has just one sequence of blocks that fills over half the line. Like if there is one line that only has 13 straight bricks, you can figure out a good portion of the line. That should help you get started.

A lot of fun. Played for 2 hours or so. Anything larger than 10x10 is kind of a pain since you have to zoom, but still a fun game.

Won't be playing online since my router isn't set up for WEP.

2459  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gamespot sells the "most popular game" title? on: July 25, 2007, 12:56:23 AM
If this is posted in the wrong place, please move it.

Not sure how much this means. But if you go to the Gamespot PSP section, no games are listed under reviews, and their bottom section which is the top games for that system (IIRC, decided by user hits) is also blank.

However the PSP has a full page background ad for Radiant Mythology. All fine and dandy. But the one game to show up for todays most popular game is Radiant Mythology, even though all the blanks are empty. So is Gamespot selling that top spot? If that's the case, I just lost a lot of respect for them.

I'm a little concerned about the translation from mouse/keyboard to controller though...

If it's just a graphic change, I would much rather have the PC version for the controls alone. Why would I want this game if I have a capable PC? It looks like Civ4 with bad graphics to me.

I don't want bad years for the Republicans. As an American who wants to be proud of our government I pray that the party will become a bit more centered and support people I can respect and not the DeLays and Brownbacks they seem to love currently.

Anyway, the Democrats are pretty scary right now too. Our whole government is depressing.

The main thing the system suffers from right now is lack of media and public attention, along with the idea that the system is bulky and such.  A hardware refresh that gave it a new sleek look that could attract gadget heads like those who rushed out to buy iphones could really push the system.

I disagree, the main thing it needs is interesting games. I would buy one in a second if there were games I wanted for it. I occassionaly check out the game reviews to see if something has come along that I missed, still not seeing anything that pushes me to get one.

I like Nintendo as much as the next guy but I outgrew their kid slant many years ago.

That is such a naive comment. The majority of games are no more kiddy than what you see for the PSP. Yeah, it does have some kiddy games, and guess what, those games are fun too.
