Success as a nebulous definition would adhere to "meeting and / or exceeding one's goals".

They want to sell the product to a profit, have 3rd party titles and gain greater market share.

Nintendo is the only company who are moving their core business in a different direction. MS and Sony are content to fight for the gamer marketshare with gains as new gamers are born, converted or impressed. They are plowing the same field in a new harvest season. Good for them; there's money there. Nintendo instead has redesigned their hardware to go for the harder target; the buyers they HAVEN'T appealed to in the past. They're going for the much larger potentially more fertile "casual gamer" demographic.

Sony and Microsoft are dabbling in the casual gamer market. Just like our good friend Nintendo dabbled in HD and broadband connectivity last generation. Here's our Live Arcade and where it fits in. Sony's episodic content and downloadable games are the same thing.

Will Nintendo's gamble on the Wii work out for them? I think it will; I don't miss using a keyboard when I play Halo, and I'm sure I'm not going to miss the d-pad or the analog stick to aim when I can use the muscles, tendons and framework that I've grown since birth.

If I do ever get the system I'll probably do it online since I don't think I could ever walk up to a counter and say " Do you have any Wii's in stock?".


I suspect a long-time terminal maker will be getting into the 3rd party controller business.. Can't wait for the advertising campaigns :


"Wii too small? Wing your wii? Try Wang."
"Wrong Wii will wail. Wang wins!"
" Get bigger Wang!"

and my personal favorite :
"Wii harder with Wang."

I believe it became popular on this side of the ocean during FinalFantasy XI (MMORPG) which allows Asian / North American gamers to "speak the same language". At least, that's where I first started seeing / using it. It makes more sense, but the trick is that some of them are pretty convoluted.

You'll want one off ebay instead... WAY cheaper.

eg : Linky-linky

The dock itself doesn't come with ANY thing else from apple; this means you'll need a USB <--> iPod cable (which can plug into the dock or into your iPod directly).

Keep in mind that the dock is needed so that MS doesn't have to include drivers to properly pump power to it via software; the dock does it at a hardware level instead.

I hate all of you. E3 is so much fun.

But working for GT would take the fun out of it (or at least changing it significantly). Getting scoops etc. is a different kind of fun (rather than getting to try out all the kiosks).

seeing stuff like a Xbox360 addon where it adds a RiM-like keyboard that plugs into the headset port and "clicks into" the controller.

15893  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Getting 5.1 sound out of your PS2? on: May 05, 2006, 04:51:03 PM
Keep in mind that DTS doesn't use compression; IIRC to get it to work on PS2 they cut down the sound transmitted. As I understand it, they reduce the sound quality to provide more channels.

Also, if it's 4.0 it's not using the full bandwidth that DTS 5.1 would be using as they've dropped the dedicated subwoofer signal and one of the channels (either centre or only having 1 rear surround; I'm not sure which). I would think they'd offload the center channel to the front L & R and run both L&R through center, as well as to their respective speakers.

Dolby uses compression algorythms instead to overcome the data throughput issue, rather than reducing the sound quality. full DTS is HUGE data (think a 48K .WAV file vs an MP3 which compresses the sound and reduces sound fidelity)

15907  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FFXI - Impressions/General Talk on: May 01, 2006, 07:25:28 PM
always ALWAYS check mobs before attacking them.

The way the scale works is this :
(all from memory; no promises of technical accuracy)

Not worth fighting (or somesuch message) = 0xp
Too Easy = 10+
Easy = 50+
Decent Challenge = 70+
Even Match = 100+
Tough = 125+
Very tough = 150+
Impossible = 175+

When you get into parties, Tough should be the lowest you go for, as the total party XP is based on the mob's rating to the highest member. This means that if your lvl20 party has a lvl 40WHM you would need to fight monsters in the 40's to get ANY experience.

The closer the levels are, the better it is. Your members shouldn't vary in level beyond 3.

If you have:
18WHM
18PLD
19WAR
20MNK
20DRK  

and you have a choice between the following :
17THF
19THF
21THF

Go with the 19THF as the safe bet.

If you don't have that option, and both the 20MNK and 20DRK are about to lvl up (TNL or To Next Level is low) then take the 21THF if he's a long way from 22)

Barring that, go with the 17THF. Just know that they are going to be less effective, and will miss more than the other pt members (so you should have a strong party to support them).

I would go with the 17THF over the 21THF if the 17's TNL is low (as he's basically an 18 ).

Quote from: "Andraax"
I was fighting near a BLM last night and I kept seeing combat spam showing he was getting interrupted a lot.

I'm still getting used to a menu-based UI, since I also play EQ2 and DDO, and the first thing I looked for was a hotbar.

-Andraax


Use the CTRL and ALT bars.... go to your main menu, second screen, and there you can program macros. You can also turn on chat filters which let you eliminate the "Others" chats. So you *WILL* see Party, self, and monsters you fight, but people beside you don't fill up your screen.

Some tips :
[list=1]
  • www.gamefaqs.com is your friend.
  • So is http://ffxi.allakazham.com .
  • Alt - R replies to people who have sent tells to you (keep hitting R to cycle through recipients, IIRC the max is 10),
  • ALT-P takes whatever text you've typed (and not sent yet) and sends it to the party
  • ALT-L is the same for Linkshell
  • ALT-T is the same for a tell (whisper)
  • Click on yourself, choose chat, and then you get an option to choose your default chat mode.
  • Useful macros :
/check <t>  
/ra <t> (ranged attack, iirc)
/p Warning: Pulling <t> at <pos> /call3
  • Useful macros :
/p <p0> - HP @ <hpp> (<hp>)    MP @ <mpp> (<mp>)  TP @ <tp>
  • useful macros :
/follow <t>
/t <t> FYI: Turning on /follow macro.
  • Set up a macro for pretty much all abilities you have, such as /ja (job abilities) /ws (weapon skills) and /ma (magic) ... you definately want to announce ahead of time what you are doing.
e.g. -  Burning Blade  Macro :
           /p (Burning Blade) in 4 seconds!! /call02
           /wait 3
           /ws "Burning Blade" <bt>
           /p Unleashing (Burning Blade)!! Follow my Skillchain / Renkei!!
Note that you can either use the (Burning Blade) translator in the WS line, or the exact name including spaces within quotations.

  • /p <p0> status :: HP @ <hpp> :: TP @ <tp> :: MP @ <mpp>
/echo <p0> detail :: HP <hp> :: TP @ <tp>  :: MP <mp>

so you will give the party info on your percent, and then right below it you will tell yourself the breakdown. This is most useful for wating for a skill to become available. See next one for example

  • /p Provoking <t> !! /call2
    /ja "Provoke" <t>
    /wait 30
    /echo Provoke avail in 30 sec.
   /wait 25
   /echo Provoke avail in 5 sec
   /echo Provoke is Available! /call6

This means, as a warrior, you are notifying yourself as to when you can provoke again and get the mob to attack you. it makes you MUCH MORE effective as a tank. With 2 WARs running this script 30 sec apart, it keeps more of the hate off the non-meat-shields.
[/list:o]

<t> is target
<bt> is battle target (mob name name in red)
<p0-5> is party members; 0 is always self
<pos> gives the co-ordinates on your current map (H-5)
/p is party chat
<hp> is hitpoints  - 125/500
<hpp> is hitpoint percent  - 25%
<mp> is manapoints - 200/400
<mpp> is manapoint percent  - 50%
<tp> is Tech points (skillchain / Weaponskill) - 87%
All of these work from command line
There is also a comment switch, so you can have it appear as an FYI ... I think it's /echo, but it might be something else.
Also, you can make your char do things without saying anything ( /wave vs /wave motion)

Quote from: "Graham"
Ziploc makes sense for what it is used for.


How about Seal-a-bag? Zip comes from a device which has 10s of interlocking teeth. This is a ridge. They're standing on the name of a "Zipper" which is also an odd name.

Quote from: "Graham"
Same as Vicegrip.


Vicegrip is a brand-name of a product that stepped over it's functional name: Locking wrench. It's the same as facial tissue (or disposable hankerchief) being superceded by the Kleenex brand.

Quote from: "Graham"
Yahoo most likely comes from "Yee Haw" and is an exclamation of discovery.


And Wii (as in Wheee!) would be any less valid ? slywink

Quote from: "Graham"
Transformers are vehicles that change into robots, what else would you have called them?


They aren't restricted to vehicles, however to illustrate the point you could call them Transforming Robots, Dual-Bots, Go-Bots slywink, Robot Disguisers, Voltron. They could have named it based on the racial conflicts : Autobots vs. Decepticons or based on the color of their logos. (Red vs. Blue/Purple)

The fact is, a transformer is a device in the electrical world that has been around longer than the merchandise; for most of us the context determines what we think. If I say "I'm looking forward to the new Transformer movie" you're not thinking of an electrical documentary.

Quote from: "Graham"
These are good names for products.  Wii isn't.  While they might have gone through and thought of "whee" like kids on a merry-go-round, there are some other negative connotations for the console.  I have a feeling that Nintendo planned for some backlash, but I don't believe that they had any idea of the backlash they'd get.


This is your opinion, and I don't for a moment think you aren't entitled to it. I would like suggest the following thought process behind the name :
[list=a]
  • Global product
  • Universal name
  • It is typical for industry to shorten name to acronyms (PS2, GC, NES, GBA etc)
  • Representative of multiplayer
  • Appeals to non-gamers
  • Something fun-sounding
  • [/list:o]
    You can't tell me that a company like Nintendo didn't have 1000's of hours spent in focus groups spread out over their different markets including their existing customer base as well as their new target demographic. Why else did they anticipate the negative backlash? I mean, MS got a huge backlash this time last year with the Xbox360, it's design, the controller, etc, etc etc.

    As to LE's comment about the term Wee as being a UK term for pissing, so I guess you try not to think with your head? (another slang, IIRC slywink). The very next post then goes on to call it gay, a term we are ALL aware means happy, unless you're referring to the slang for homosexual.

Wow.

I mean really, where is this coming from? Is the internet ruled by people who laugh when they see the name Regina? I didn't realize Earth was synonymous with 4th grade. Wii = Piss ? The term wee-wee is reserved for "pottie training". Grow up. If you have an "outie" its called a penis, and vagina for you "innie" folks. People eat Cheese Whiz. We know what cheese is, the word whiz = piss; why in the world would you want to eat that stuff ?

Ziploc, Vicegrip, Google, Yahoo, hotmail (or is it hotMALE for you homophobes), pizza (pronounced peet-zah) and gyro (pronounced hee-row) are all  household names. We was floors with swiffers, have clappers for our lights and wash ourselves with Lufahs. Our kids play with pokemons, digimons and medabots, while we get misty-eyed over the nostalgic responses to astro-boy, transformers, GI Joe (gee-eye-joe) and Thundercats.

I don't think Dr. Seuss could compare with the words we use. Wii will be next. Suck it up, buttercup. At least it's simple enough. Maybe they should have gone with Woo or Waa.

Nintendo has never been in the electronics business; they've always been the creators of wildly successful fads. For every failed attempt (robo, virtualboy and Gamecube ... which beat the tar outta the 'box in japan) they have their Donkey Kongs, Marios, Gameboys, N64, SNES, NES. They have their PokeMons etc etc etc etc.

They have created a new product, devoid of the me-too shackles currently limiting controllers to game types (cuz hey, we all agree Mouse > joystick for FPS games). Now if we could get something better than a 2d control for 3d games, wouldn't that be nice??

I'm looking forward to Wii and the breath of fresh air it brings... even if it does remind people of urine.

I Wiiwii wove it. Wiiwii I do. I do I do I do.


Like "Eye-Toy" is better, or the SPIDERMAN 3 errr.. PLAYSTATION 3 is a better name. Sony should release a new product called.... The Walkman! yeah. Or the Discman! Cuz hey, brand recognition is important. /sarcasm

Thing is, Nintendo is a worldwide brand. Wii (whee) is a syllable. It is going to sound the same everywhere; it's not going to beat the market share of the "Pray-shtashun tree-oh!" but it will be a popular product.

I have every confidence that this will work to their benefit. You look at it and think "Wireless" "interactive" "Simple". Some people think piss, but they're going to think that anyways. -LE- for example would be hard-pressed to give praise to any product; as a general rule he's silent when something is done right, and very vocal when it's not done to his taste. (I'm not pickin' on ya, I'm just making a point).  -LE- has demonstrated his capacity to think otherwise; but he sticks with his M.O. and continues on looking at all the glasses that are not nearly as full as they should be. There are those who would emulate such a person, except with no capacity to think. These are the people I take issue with.

In 6 months time the name will have jelled, and we will have the fun and inexpensive Wii in our living rooms. Some people don't feel the Wii has value (KD for example dropped a "wavin' my TiVo, just not feelin' it"). The market has matured, the gamers are looking to break out of the stale, and the technology is there to support it. The game-glove was a great idea, only it was 15 years too early (for both reasons listed above).

As to the wiiwii jokes, I'm sure they're going to be around for a long time. I don't mind; if I can invite a girl over to play with my Wii with me, I'm all for it. biggrin

No character transfer service. frown

which means that *IF* they offer a migration service to a new server we would have to move to it (from Asura) and anyone's old chars from the other world. :s ... there are no new servers right now.

New char for me, it seems.

Basically, you create the char and then exit. Once I can do it on the 360, I'll write up a tutorial....

the only trick is, SOME servers won't come up on rotation if they are too populated. This trick is how I got Stabbetty created on Phoenix way back when.
