Well thats the masses for you.. For me personally, I recline in a nice chair, and enjoy my games.  No way in fucking hell am I even considering a console where I have to make masturbation movements to play games.  Straps breaking or otherwise, its a lame gimmick.

Bullshit, play it before you talk. Yeah in Sports it's easier to stand up. Zelda all I need to do is shake the remote a bit. 3 inches or so at most. I am perfectly relaxed playing Zelda. It's easier and more comfortable than a normal controller.

No. A scourge is a punishment; it's not self-inflicted.

Yet none of the definitions I found say that. Puzzling.

I can honestly say, I hate the "I don't eat fast food" attitude that seems prevalent on gaming forums. Yeah, you are cool because you don't lower yourself to eat fast food.

I don't understand why it bothers you.

gellar

And is it really limited to gaming forums?  Or do non-gamers have the capacity for this attitude, as well?

I have never met a person in real life who claims they won't eat fast food. Not saying I don't know people who don't eat it, but if they don't, they don't feel the need to proclaim it. Start a thread on a gaming forum, and a few people will comment on how they don't, and it usually seems to be in a holier than thou tone.

No, I still feel completely fine mocking anyone idiotic enough to break their Wiimote strap. Hold on to the remote people. It's not that difficult.


Its more than that, apparently the straps simply cannot take much stress, and fray out pretty quickly.  I saw a report on MSNBC about it.. As I said a couple weeks ago, I smell a "Recall" on this one.

So don't let go of the f***ing thing. It's not hard. As someone who actually owns a Wii, I can tell you first hand, you have to be a dumb ass, or don't give a shit, to toss your remote. Yeah Nintendo could have made it stronger, but the user has to take the brunt of the responsibility.

My only wonder is why is the player on the far right in the first shot of NBA 2K7 completely bald on the 360 but the same player (note tattoo on arm) has a full head of hair on the PS3?   

Does the PS3 do hair better?

You got it backwards, he has hair in the 360 version.

Quote from: Kobra on December 07, 2006, 01:08:41 AM

Based on those shots, the Xbox360 is graphically superior.  Seems to me, the Xbox360 has a far better lighting engine than the PS3 just by looking at those shots. Also the fuzzy and washed out look on the PS3 is pretty alarming.

Looks like it will come down to the games and exclusives on which console will win, because graphically, the Xbox360 looks better, but the PS3 may close that gap, and if they do, like I said, its going to come down to the games.. 

That isn't fair though. The PS3 has launch games only to go off of. We need at least a year to determine anything.

One more thing, if you need component cables, order them from Nitendo right away. Took about 2 weeks to get mine directly from them. (Assuming that they are doing the same badly planned launch in Europe that they did in NA.)

I had huge problems updating it. Switched my router to channel 11, and everything worked great. Much faster. Just don't use channel 6.

No problems with the strap, I have never even come close to losing my grip on the remote, and I get pretty into tennis (I LOVE that game). I did come close to hitting my TV as I leaned forward in bowling once. Just set up a clear area where you can swing without worrying about hitting something.

Zelda is a great game. Very fun. The only must buy that I know of. I got Rayman, and while fun, it's nothing special IMO. I just like the shooting part in between the mini games.

The on board memory is good enough, for now. I have tons of room left with 3 game saves and one downloaded game. Don't worry about getting an SD card yet.

Its just that Sony was saying thigns like this will own the soul of the 360 withing days of launch! Huzzah Huzzah! and so forth..

Exactly. I wish some people hating on the article would actually read it. Check out the article, read some of the claims Sony was making about the PS3 compared to the 360.

"Microsoft is trailing behind us, but they are not a threat. They are good at improving [on products], but we will be advancing to the next level with revolutionary technology...Microsoft shoots for the moon. Sony shoots for the sun."

"With the PS3, our intentions have been to create a machine with supercomputer calculation capabilities for home entertainment...You can experience the 4D world."

"We want for consumers to think to themselves 'I will work more hours to buy one'. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else...The PS3 will instill discipline in our children and adults alike. Everyone will know discipline."

The 360 made them eat their words. I want to make it clear that I fully expect, and hope infact, that the PS3 produces better looking games than the 360 at some point. It came out a year later, and it costs 50% more, when I end up buying this sucker I want my money's worth just like anyone. I'm not biased, I like competition.

+1

It's not that I hate the PS3, I want one, I am just not willing to pay that price for one. They get shit because they were so cocky, not because the PS3 sucks.

Every time the Wii commercial comes on the TV at work, all my coworkers give me shit for it. The idea of me playing games in front of my TV, like in the commercial, just cracks them up to no end. The gamers in the shop all say they don't want to stand up to play video games either. All I say to them is that they need to play one before they laugh it off.

I don't see it as Sony bashing. He points out the truly stupid things Sony does/says. That goes for EA too. But then again, I agree with him. While I love Sony for their other products, and I don't shy away from an EA game that interests me, I really wonder what the companies are thinking sometimes.

Well I rented it knowing that I usually don't like these games and expecting to not like this one-I am not even sure why I did rent it. After giving it like 5 hours, I decided that its a cute, clever, neat game that I have absolutely zero interest in. So I hope you all have a lot of fun with it!!

I agree with you, but then again I don't. I like the game, I think. Last night I had a lot of fun with the game, thought about it all day at work even. Got home and played it and I was just really sick of doing the little mazes. Sick of trying to figure out what would eat what, sick of the annoying workers who are barely adequate, if that. Sick of trying to attract a Doenut, and sick of all the pinatas I had already. Yet it's strangely addicting. I really don't know how I feel about the game.

I don't think you get drama if yout hink there's drama here.  If you're interested in drama, consult your local library or www.octopusoverlords.com.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I really shouldn't but I can't resist.  icon_smile

Which shows you only read OO during the BC split crap and the U2K thing (both of which were pretty damn amusing). The drama hasn't been there for months.

Questions:

Helpers (as in the sprinkler): Is it a one time fee or do you have to pay them every so often. The sprinkler is almost useless. And what does the weeder do? Is there a way to make them more efficient?

Birdbath: Is there a way to get water in it? It's empty and my birds won't go near it.

Happiness: What does it matter if my pinatas are happy or not?

Blackberry bush: None of the fertilizers work, how am I supposed to get it higher than a 6/12?

Thanks.

I'm loving this game.  About 9 hours in now and it's just ... insanely good.  How they continue to craft engaging, memorable & mind-challenging (to the point where you need to think 'outside the box' more so than other kinds of adventure games) Zelda games is beyond me.  Sure the graphics might not be screaming, "NEXT GEN!", but the Twilight sections are so atmospheric I could care less how many polygons are on the screen compared to the art direction and such.  The controls are implemented so well it becomes second nature.  The game just oozes personality... which every Zelda game always seems to do.

This is the game to get if you have a Wii.  This is the game that will make you realize just how conventional the wiimote can be.

Completely agree. I get so into the game I don't even notice that the graphics aren't "gext gen".
