To clarify : DW5:E on 360 is better than any other DW games on any other last-gen platform, for the performance alone.

It is still a port though. And the multiplayer aspects of it are weak. It is RISK + Dynasty Warriors, and you have to give it some time to start enjoying it.

Samurai Warriors 2 is a better game overall, as the Multiplayer has more options and they got rid of the horrid "indoors" levels. Indoors in SW1 ruined the game, in SW2 it is encorporated.

Both still look like ports, but the gameplay on DW5:E is MOTS with no change to combo systems. The weapons are refreshing (you get upgrades in battles to which you get to apply to weapons). If you're not sure about how much time I've spent in both games, check out my achievements. slywink

SW2 has you buying stuff in a store to unlock new skills. I had it rented for over a month and a half.

N3 has a better told story, but it is shorter. It has way better graphics, and if you get past mashing buttons and learn the combos you can string some devastating effects.
I had almost completed all achievements, but there are some that are WAY annoying (like Inffyy's secret level with a boss that makes RAMM look like a chump).

I've been Dynasty Warrior-ing it since the PS2 launch with DW2 in hand. (traded Armored Core 2 in for it since I found THAT game repetitive, HAH!)
Dunno what it is, but I can still go through these games and not even flinch at the repetitiveness.

Dynasty Warriors Empires is out for the 360. It gives you the DW hack an slashyness gameplay along with a touch of strategy game interface when it comes to deciding which nation you are attacking/defending.
That's about as updated as you're gonna get for the series.
Samurai Warriors has one out as well for the 360 in case you feel like swapping out China for some Japan.

X360 :

Samurai Warriors 2 > Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires > Ninety-Nine Nights.

N3 is enjoyable, but short. A week's rental at best.

You could always be like gellar and just insert your signature manually into each post you make. 

When gellar offers to "insert his signature manually" he's talking about something else entirely.

I'm pretty sure the term "Violation of the CoC" needs to be said.

I just have never seen people line up for a game before.  A console yes.  But a game?

There's a limited Premium / Blue Dragon bundle.  I think the initial allotment was 10k with up to 100k coming.  In fact I think the 360 might have have the BD symbol on it or something.

Uhm, Halo2 had stupid lines. frown

And I can see and even agree with that point. I'm just not wanting to be the HR person assigned to replacing our surly curmugeon (Myto would be proud!). He ran off the worse evils in the world. He was our Megabyte. slywink

A poll could help clear this up, but frankly I don't even know if he WANTS back.

The only reason I have reservations about flushing and forgetting LE is that if that truly WAS the comment that got him banned, I don't know that he knew he stepped over the line. I certainly didn't read that post and think : "Ooo, heads are gonna roll, boys."

Ah well. If he's gone, he's gone. I'm not going to fight for him; I just didn't see THAT message as perma-ban material. If he dropped a bunch of unacceptable messages all over the place, but we're talking about freaking on a guy for one misstep (that I know of).

He could have crapped on King and Country in the sports section, I'd never know. Is this fueled by one offended reader or is this a group of fellas and gals who've just plain had enough?

He was temp banned (about a year and a half ago; IIRC). I'm not one for censorship so I don't feel like we have to muzzle peoples opinions. Someone like LE is very opinionated, and often dead wrong. Does that invalidate him as a member of the community? I think not. I've seen a vast improvement in his attitude over the past 2 years; he used to regularly cut people down.

He fell off the wagon once, and maybe didn't realize it. If he was banned last month, then a perma-ban is something I'd support wholeheartedly. I don't know if he was, so I'm not one to pass that judgement on.

15213  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Is Lord Ebonstone banned? on: December 07, 2006, 08:23:16 PM
LD,

I have no problems with him being banned. He made the comment(s) that offended.

That being said, I think the hammer of bannination was swung without him being given the opportunity to swallow some pride and at least state that hey, maybe that was over the line.

I think we can show a little tolerance to someone like -LE-; it's not like he's showing up and dropping stupid comments all over the place. He is a contributor to this site, and we take all flavors; even bitter ones.

I think that one comment came off for him as "clever" ... he likes recycling sentences that contain offensive material. We sometimes need to know when it truly isn't meant; he knows that there are conservative christians on the forum. If he truly thought that they all are, why would he bother with 3500+posts to a bunch of "fuck-wits"?

He may have pissed off a 100 lurkers with that comment, and that is a bad thing for the site. But I think it is worse to not allow him to express his intent or an apology for a breach of conduct.

If that line came from someone with no history, I would have expected a "WTF" series of messages and that person would have had the chance to retract. I expect no less for LE.
15214  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Is Lord Ebonstone banned? on: December 07, 2006, 07:15:26 PM
I think he might have said poop. We don't need potty-mouths here. slywink

Eh... he rode the razors edge here. I don't dislike him, but in the last month he got pretty dark and abrasive (that's like saying "The sandpaper *began* to chafe"  icon_wink).

I hope he can beg his way back in at some point. He challenged us with his "unique" perspective.

I'd yank the soundcard first; it doesn't test sound during a perf-tests, IIRC.
You could also run DXDIAG and run a full diag test from there. It doesn't always reveal problems, but it can't hurt.

As to RAM testing; if your system can address the memory in the speed test, then it's likely not a memory issue.

Can you run a tech demo all night and see if it's up in the morning?

The Sheriff is obviously trying to cover his tracks that's why he "can't talk" about it now, they need a couple days to make up some good BS story as to why they killed an unarmed man and his dog.

Yeah cause of course we have all the info and the media would never be involved in 1 sided reporting to sensationalize and get ratings.

Yeah, he was using the sixaxis controller from the bedroom window, trying to shoot the cops with his Hedgehog gun in RFoM.

From that article :

Quote
Ultimately, in future games, Insomniac will try to get almost all tasks running on the SPEs. “The holy grail that people writing games on the Cell are ultimately trying to reach is to get…the real highest-level decision making [onto the SPEs],” says Hastings. “I think that, based on where we are now, that’s still a few years away.”

Uh, so the 3rd gen games are the ones to watch for then? Considering Insomniac has been working on this platform and had "one out the door" this doesn't look too good for the games coming out in the next year ... That's not to say I think the games released now are bad, per se, but they need to compete with releases like Halo (which put the Xbox on the map).

I think MS played this well; they didn't need to release much to compete with 0 stock available.

Sony better get some must-haves and looking suh-weet in the next 10 months otherwise next Christmas might look about the same sales-wise. frown
