4361  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 woes... on: May 02, 2006, 03:04:28 PM

Oh, is the 360 supposed to be so loud?  It's easily 5 times louder than my computer, and it drives me nuts.

From my understanding, yes. My 360 is outrageously loud, and it keeps me from playing it as often as I want to. That whine is annoying at the very least.

What kind of noise are you talking about? High pitch? Low? Rattle? Lawn Mower?

See, I had read about this pinball area before and I thought that was the place...But nope, that is not the pinball area.  If you want a little guidance, I can post where it is slywink

Nope! I'll find it smile

Got it.


I got tired of trying to get up to the top left of the pinball area and headed for the exit. Man, that's brutal.

While I know it isn't the first time this has been done, it's quite interesting how they combined puzzles of varying difficulty into this one level.

Pinball?!  :shock:

Do you mean the one where there are the trampolines at slight angles on opposite sides with a bunch of the jewels in the middle? I couldn't escape the feeling that there was something above thhat, but I couldn't get high enough.

What I'm saying is that there's a ton of creativity in the level we've seen (or at least fantastic presentation/production that makes it seem that way). At the same time, one would be hope that there is far more to see/many more surprises in store.

Nope.  I just tested it to make sure I wasn't remembering it wrong and all I had to do was tap it once.

Cool, thanks!

Has anybody gotten all 20 fruits?
My best is all but one (19) with 2/3 guys rescued.
If the whole game is this much fun and if there's some variety in the level design, then this is a big-time winner in my book. Probably won't sell worth a damn, unfortunately, but you never can tell (just look at Katamari).

Between this, Lumines 2, and Every Extend Extra, plus the games I'm already playing (MGA2, Katamari), I'm good to go for the forseeable future.

Has anybody else felt this way?

No. I haven't seen that at all. Though sometimes I'm surprised at a particular score, it's easy for that to happen because of the way crashbreaker multipliers work. It hasn't seemed to me at all like this was tied to the number of attempts, though.

Then again, I also never thought there was rubberband AI in NFSMW, and many seem convinced of that.

I messed around with the demo for this yesterday (from the download station at Gamestop).

You guys like the whole "click to enlarge the square" bit for the sudoku, eh?
It seemed a tad bit cumbersome to me, but I haven't really tried any other method to play it electronically without a keyboard. The handwriting recognition seems good and I like the way you can make notes on possible choices for a square. The one thing I had to really pay attention to was not writing my numbers too small.

I really like that if you make a mistake it tells you so, rather than getting all the way to the end of a puzzle and realizing you screwed up.

Wow, that was awful.  Really, really bad.

Seriously? I actually own this one and while I haven't played a ton of it, it's a lot of fun. This title has a completely demented sense of humor, has these great Burnout-esque crash events where you try to damage your own body as much as possible, and the tricks are really easy to do. It also has an absolutely *phenomenal* soundtrack.

Now if you're looking for a snowboarding sim, look elsewhere.

No, that was pretty good actually. So you are basically using your cards to mark territory, but unlike Monopoly, it sounds like maybe territory can change hands (if you beat the other guy's monster?).

I'm guessing some squares hold more value than others....

I think maybe the responses are missing the thrust of what AI wants to know. I haven't been paying full attention to the discussions, but I've seen some references to stuff like not necessarily choosing stuff you plan to use a ton as major skills because you will level quickly...I think that's the kind of general strategizing he's asking about.

well it is probably going to retail at the current 130 with the older model taking a price drop. That's what all of the websites and magazines are stating. Also stating a May launch. Ie; show it at E3 and say pick it up in stores a few days later.

Our Nintendo rep said the retail price was going to be higher than the current version. She said how much, but I can't remember. I want to say it was between 150-170.

Yeah but if you don't have any units near them, they won't show because of fog of war. I don't know if that's the problem or not, though, that's the next mission I need to do. Wouldn't hurt to sweep the map with some fast units.

Check your list of objectives....I bet there's one that isn't completed.

I'm planning to pick up Magnetica, which is a Puzzloop remake (from what I understand Zuma is largely a clone of this). You get to use the stylus to flick the colored balls where you want them to go. Sounds good to me. I'm hoping it has strong production values.

Hunters is the first game that I have played that would be totally different without the touch screen and that is a first party game.

You really should check out Kirby: Canvas Curse then.  There's no way the game could ever work on any system but the DS with it's touch screen input.  It's also (not coincidentally) one of the most fun 2D platformers I've played.

I suppose Meteos could be played with the d-pad but I can't imagine getting a high score that way.

I was going to mention Kirby and Meteos as well. Also Nintendogs comes to mind, even something like Zoo Keeper.

An upcoming game that should make great use of the screen is the Puzzloop remake, Magnetica. Think Zuma using the stylus to flick the colored balls around.

It isn't just the touch screen, either...simply having the second screen is part of it too. There are games that make very good use of that second screen (like Age of Empires) even though touch isn't a major component.

It's still good old-fashioned worms fun, and I like being able to use the touch screen, it's just so easy to see how some stupid little things...things that shouldn't have amounted to scads of development time, could have made it so much better.
4388  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Worms: Open Warfare [DS] on: April 09, 2006, 10:22:24 PM
A good game hampered by some idiotic design decisions.

Why can't I turn off the clock between moves?
Why can't I turn off the setting to auto-center on the current worm?
And for crying out loud (never mind the fact there's no internet play) why on earth is there no multi-card play? Yes if you have 2 carts in 2 DS handhelds you still must download each time you play.

Quote from: "metallicorphan"
when it comes to video games,if a game comes on two discs,because of its size its no big deal....i think it will be a long time until HD-DVDs or BLU-RAY s are taken full advantage of..which ever wins..because games that size that the two formats are boasting,just aren't made(theres very few games that come on 2 discs....remember FF10 was only one disc)

I don't think it's about the games, though, its about the movies. HD movies.

My guess all along has been that PS3 would be 499 or 599 in the US. I think you're going to see Sony pitching PS3 not simply as a game machine, but as a home media machine (i.e. with heavy emphasis on the hd movie aspect). A lot of parents might not be willing to but lil Johnny a 600 (possibly more) toy to play games but just might for a newfangled DVD player. And oh yeah, Johnny can play games on it too.

I definitely need a new one.  Right now my library consists of..

SM 64 DS
Animal Crossing
Mario Kart
Lunar: Dragon Song

I need something long and lasting, but I don't care what kind (not to big on random puzzle games.)  Give me some ideas please!

I really like meteos, but that's more or less a puzzle/zrcade type game so maybe not the best choice for you.

I've played through most of the tutorial for Age of Empires and like it a lot so far. I enjoy turn based strategy. I've been looking for a used copy of Advance Wars, but no luck yet.

Not three hundred and sixty questions but questions about the Xbox 360

So I finally will be getting one (UPS says it is on the truck for delivery) and I have a few questions about setup and that kind of thing.

1. If I stick with the silver package will I still be able to download demos, and games off live?  I know I won't be able to play on-line but that is fine but I would like to be able to get bejeweled! (after all I only have it for the PocketPC, and PC)  

2. Does vertical or horizontal matter?  I haven't decided yet what would look best but does it make any difference besides looks?

1) D'oh! Misread this and thought you meant the core system.

2) Nope, nada.

Yeah, but you could import a European copy and get it in a language you know smile

You guys are starting to tempt me with this one. I've never played a rhythm game before and the ones I've seen didn't appeal to me, but this one has a different style to it. It doesn't seem to be about the frantic button mashing like so many of the others.

On an ancillary note, I bought a DS yesterday...we now have silver red and, the latest, blue. I don't have to borrow one from the kids anymore biggrin

Got in a tutorial mission for Age of Empires while waiting on soccer practice.
