Well... that was enough for me to cancel my pre-order, seeing as how I still have Dark Spire and Crimson Gem Saga I'm playing off and on. Maybe later.

Also this Thursday brings the long awaited Big Surf Island for Burnout Paradise.

1000pts or $12.99, depending on where you get it.

Wow... lost track of that one.  icon_cool

Sony talked up an improved media manager during E3 that should make transferring files to your PSP from your PC but I don't know if it's available yet. 

Media Go I assume.

The Indy game came out of nowhere for me.  I seriously hope it has no issues on a BC PS3.

Considering it's for the Wii I'd imagine any version of the PS3 would have problems.  slywink

Except perhaps the PS2 version. On a BC PS3.  icon_wink

It is being sold directly by them. I have my pre-order in.

Weird... why would they list it that way with themselves as one of the other 'buying choices'? Anyway, should have noticed that, thanks for the heads up.  icon_biggrin

I'm not seeing any text issues with FF7 with Remote Play to the PS3. It seems to be fine either way but of course the jaggies are much less noticable on the PSP. In the same boat as Gratch, though, over the years I've played the first X hours serveral times but never put in the time to get deep into the game. Really should, though. Someday.

From what I recall, one of the linked threads mentioned the fact that the square and X buttons are backwards here, which is mucho confuseo and not something I really wanted to get used to. Found that in the config menu there's a way to remap all of the functions / buttons so you can easily swap the two back 'to normal' if you like. Me likey. thumbsup

Quote from: Blackjack on June 06, 2009, 02:03:37 PM

Massively.com has a brief piece on it, and some video footage from E3 (at end of their impressions piece):
http://www.massively.com/2009/06/05/e3-2009-torchlight-will-morph-from-single-player-game-to-mmo/

Don't panic about the "to MMO" part -- they mean they'd like to ramp it up into a free MMO well after the initial release, and be able to do regular updates to the content (rather than a Diablo style, "content updates only in the form of paid expansions" system).
Quote
Torchlight will have pets that can fight with you, they never die and have their own inventory. We thank Runic Games for this design choice, because it means as players we won't have to constantly check in on our little monster's health -- instead, we'll be able to focus on beating the living mana out of our enemies.

The class we were able to get our hands on was the Destroyer. This class summons a shadow worm that attaches to your back and attacks anything nearby. We thought it was pretty wicked, actually. The game will be very modder friendly, which is a big bonus for the game's community. Things such as skills, quests, level cap, art and levels will all be moddable -- and the system is much like Unreal's drag and drop modular functionality.

Twelve to eighteen months after the single player release, Perfect World will launch the free to play MMO version. Planned features for the online game include more character customization, more character classes, mounts, PvP (both personal and territorial) and randomly generated dungeons. They will also add social features like marriage, buddy lists, chat features and world events.
The MMO part seems like an awfully optimistic dream -- lots of companies have crashed and burn in "12 to 18 months."

I needed to jog my memory about Felicia Day (who's in the E3 video). She's maybe best known for Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing Along (http://doctorhorrible.net/) alongside Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion. That she'd be having fun trying Torchlight just makes her more attractive.  drool icon_lol

I've got the PS1 version of FF7 so can play it on my PS3 if need be. I'm curious, getting this version means it could also run on the PSP but how would / does it look on the small screen? I'm curious but not ten dollars curious.  icon_wink

You can also stream the PS1 game of FF7 from your PS3 to your PSP via wi-fi. You could see how it plays that way. biggrin

Thanks to a power failure in the neighborhood which precluded doing much of anything else, I opened up my copy (which arrived today) and took it for a short spin in the dark. Mostly one word comes to mind - whatthefuck?  icon_lol

I'm smack in the middle of other things so didn't want to take the time / brain power to do any serious learning of this, that will have to wait - but I was blown away by the shear volume of tutorial and 'tips' entries for this. Then just started a new game, even after it warned me I really should do the tutorial first and had no clue what was going on. The wisp is advancing, the wisp is advancing, the wisp is advancing... errr, what? Looks like this will be interesting when I get some time to get serious about it.

For things I like, there are also things I don't care about. I don't care that there's no visual damage modeling, or player controllable tricks on the cycles and quads, or cockpit views, or aftermarket performance mods for the vehicles, or tuning options. If the lack of these things bother you, you may want to rent the game first. For me, the lack of those items doesn't detract at all from the experience.

I'm right there with you except for the visual damage... I *love* that in other games when it's done well and would really appreciate it here but the lack of it isn't a deal-breaker for me as long as there's some kind of damage modeling. For the quad/atv trick riding I've already got Pure and it is very well done there. Everything else falls into the "wouldn't really use" camp for me.

Anybody know whether the reviews for this are actually going to be showing BEFORE release date?

I'm working on my review now - final boxed copy.  I'm absolutely LOVING it.  If you liked Hulk, you are gonna LOVE this.

I think the embargo lifts on the 9th, but I'm working to get out there early.  It's going to score very well. smile

Soooo glad I read this post.  The reference to Hulk just saved me $65. 

Which 'Hulk' are we talking about here?  I was assuming the 'Ultimate Destruction' one that I thought (never having played it) was very well received.  icon_neutral

You're right, I typically only go to the front page for specific reviews or when chastised in the forums, my bookmark takes me directory to the 'top' of the forums. And interesting comment about the 'Console' forum, I've found that to basically be true - I come here primarily for console discussions and OO for the pc, they have the exact opposite ratio of posts pc v. console.

Did you win the challenge?  I'm curious how this comment from the review sits with you:

Quote from: IGN
There's no rubber-banding per se, but the way that the game makes things "challenging" is by having the guys at the front of the pack take off at a million miles an hour and then stay ahead for the bulk of the race. Near the end, it'll just slow down a great deal to let you pass on by and win the race. Once you realize that this happens every time, it's not a matter of taking risks to catch up but simply playing it safe and waiting for the computer to let off the accelerator and let you take your place on the podium.

Especially after you have more races under your belt.

Purchased the HD-555.  The bottom part of the cups(right below my ear lobe) dig into my neck pretty hard and feels like it's pinching my eustachian tube or something.  Pretty darn uncomfortable.  Do they loosen up after awhile?

While they do loosen a bit, they were never uncomfortable for me.  You may need to return them.

Same here, never uncomfortable. Silly question, perhaps, but you do know you can pull down on the cups to adjust the fit, yes?

Agree with the above.  icon_wink

I wish I could turn off the music, though, it's really getting on my nerves. Several of the conversations have made me LOL, one exchange took place at the Inn where your character is told the daughter is running the show today because her mother is sick and "No, that is not a hint for a quest to go get medicine for her. You adventurers are all alike.".  Or the first time I found a "small bomb" in a box by a bed and thought "a bomb? there?" and then your character asked the same question.  icon_biggrin

Looks to be lots of things you can do to your weapons to improve them, some are slotted for upgrades or 'monsters' you can add, plus there's cards you can use to improve them and your skills. Kind of odd to me that, so far, all of the wandering monsters on the map use the same small blue imp-like figure, it's not until you actually get into combat that you know what you are actually going to be fighting. Just got to the first "dungeon" (the... Dark Spire, I believe) and it's the first time I have to worry about healing during combat, before that all of the random field encounters have been pretty easy and since you replenish HP and MP when you level up, that was working for me before this.

All kinds of odd healing things around to find and use... caffeine pills, a hamburger, cayenne pepper, acetylsalicylic acid, liger balm, milk, fried shrimp to name a few.

You should look into Pure.  It's pretty good, though I think it may be more ATV-oriented.  It does have pre-loading before a jump and has a similar vibe to it.

FYI, Pure is 100% ATV.

Next time, after the install when it asks if you want to keep or delete the 'temporary' files, tell it to keep them. They are what you can reinstall the game from or burn to media and save all that downloading again. Unless you're saying that was all that was downloaded?
