16601  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Not sure why I liked this short film. on: August 22, 2005, 10:29:25 PM
The first thing I thought of was training grounds. I wouldn't say causality, it's just an element in the mix. He's obviously not concerned about the immediate result, but finding the rythym of life and a happy balance. I figure the representation of the DJ is an angel, and as rough as the entrance is, he's been given a mission to fix this world, one street corner at a time. Now, that's not to say I've got a strong religious background; I'm consider myself a god-fearing full-time heathen.

Also, the second thing to pop into my head is "The Incredible Machine : Sims edition".

The third thing is "Fuck, I've had days at work like this...." biggrin

Wow. Imagine how many IBM SAN storage Sharks filled with porn would fit in that room. I'd say maybe 3 sharks with the right ventilation.... hrm... 60 Terrabytes ?

Speaking of Tara-bites; not fish ... plain yogurt scent is considered "healthy" and "normal". It really depends on diet and ... condition. slywink

Oh, and if there's a fin in the way, I'd watch out for salmon-Ella.

Quote from: "Rowdy"
... with Live becoming more and a more a part of the core as opposed to an optional add on.  You're kidding yourself if you don't think MS has designed the box to be an online gaming gateway.  If you don't intend to take advantage of any of those features, why spend the money?  ...


How many people have 4x4 vehicles, and how many truly go off-roading? Just because the technology has been developed doesn't mean the pricepoint is overly inflated for it. You may be paying extra for that feature, however given that Live service is consumer-paid (Live kit, server maintenance, etc) the cost on the developer is significantly less. Also, they don't need to reinvent the technology every time they create a new game.

EGM a couple of years ago (sometime between 2000-2002) put out a "cost to get game to market" and piracy only cost (on average) $1.25 extra on the price. The levels of marketing and packaging and shipping add significantly more. I doubt the development of "deathmatch with stats tracking" is driving both cost and development time through the roof.
16604  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which 360 Market share do you fall into? on: August 22, 2005, 02:10:30 PM
I'm getting the MSHFT Decadence option, although I put MSHFT option originally. I need me some recharging and second controller.
16605  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which 360 Market share do you fall into? on: August 19, 2005, 09:52:12 AM
This isn't a flame-topic, please keep the "M$" bashing to a minimum. Also, the scope of discussion doesn't extend to what options Sony or Nintendo may offer; that is all subject to change after all.

The prices do not include games, that's too "all over the place" to try and poll out. That, and extra controllers.

Yes, with MS's bait-n-switch marketing I suppose the360 is still subject to change too. slywink

Quote from: "Hetz"
I wasn't defending it, just pointing out that nobody should listen to what that guy has to say about the 360, since he is NO LONGER A DEVELOPER and has nothing to do with making games for the 360 or anything else for that matter.

This is quite a paradox, because if I can't listen to you because you're not a developer for the XBox 360, then how will I know not to listen to people who aren't developers for the XBox 360?


now *THAT* is a bait, buddy. Hetz isn't using supposition, even blatant name-dropping, to give credence to his opinion.  

BACK ON TRACK :

MS is teh suxxor. LE is right, the world is coming to an end, and Sony will save us all. slywink Just teasing, LE. I agree that MS has encouraged assumptions and then slammed us with a 180 degree turn on the 360. As I see it, MS is more flexible than Sony. They changed up their controllers. We had to bitch a WHOLE LOT, but they did it. I hope they're realizing what they've done, and maybe cut the gamers some slack.


The wireless controllers should be standard, period. They should COME WITH A CABLE to use as wired controllers. The battery pack can be sold separately (as batteries DO cost a lot of money).  The HDTV cable should come with the system. Period. The Hard disk is mostly for Xbox1 compatibility, and a nice place to store your MP3s, save games, etc. It is an added cost, and I'm ok with this. I doubt that Oblivion will make that much of a difference, and frankly the hard disk seeks aren't missed. For gods sake, don't go with maxtor for the drives. puke The remote control (included with the 399 deal) is a welcome thing; I hope they use a well-known DVD signal so that universal remotes can be programmed to control the DVD playback functions.

The Xbox360full package should also come with a CD with driver / software support for Windows XP Home/Pro that allows us to have the same benefits for streaming audio / video to the xbox360.

I wasn't worried about Oblivion.  I figure it, like every other game won't need the HD - which makes the HD useless - $100 extra for a memory card.


you get a lot more than the hard drive.
The remote, the cordless controller, the HD cables.

that's worth more than 100US. I managed to get my Monster HD cables (incl. audio) for ~60US for the Xbox. I'd rather not have to go 3rd party again. (let's just hope the quality is higher than the "breakout box" MS was selling)

Show off a wireless controller that only comes with the 400 dollar unit, or is a separate 50 dollar upgrade, when you were showing it off at e3 as a strength of the machine.

I will say, the 400 dollar unit is a superior value, but they shouldn't even have the 300 dollar unit. That's what upsets me, don't jerk my chain, just show me the 400 dollar set, tell me it's the only one, and then I feel better about how the company is treating my intelligence.


Totally agree with you on both points. If this mammoth is going to cost me 400, sell it at 400. Don't cut it down to a bare minimum and offer the "entry model".

Another point... it's 400US WITHOUT THE CHARGE kit. So you're using batteries on that wireless controller. Pony up more moolah for the charge-n-play kit.

If I want to play a game, then I don't want to be forced to put something on my PC to play it.  I also like to have a physical copy of the game without having to make one myself.  If the add on is download only, I'm not going to buy it.


Yeah. Take that one step further.
You shouldn't even HAVE to install the GAME on your hard drive.
Hey. Just buy a disk that doesn't install; the game just runs off the disk.
No hard drive seeking required. OR, you could even cut it up onto floppies (READ ONLY mind you).  :roll:

Man does this remind me of the whole DirectX vs OpenGL bullshit that people used to care about. Steam is there, people use it. I'm more bothered Sony's PlayOnline software than Steam (as it locks your system to fullscreen and if ANYTHING popped up it kicked you out of the game).

I don't really see what the appeal of a non-hard drive version would be, though.  Unless it's much less expensive (more than $50 cheaper), what would be the point?


One speculative answer : Static NV RAM is easier to access, no seek time. If the price keeps coming down, who knows... MS is in bed with the biggest Static RAM company in the world. ( forgot their name; it was big news about a year ago).

No TV I can afford can play at 1280.  My current TV is not even HD and I will not be able to afford one of them for a very very long time.  No way I can justify it for gaming, that's for sure. [...] then I will just wait til next Summer and save up some more money and upgrade or build me a new rig and go that route.


The thing about buying one of the new TV's is you won't be upgrading it every 11-20 months. It's not just for the Xbox360 either. Upgrading your PC to play a handful* of games is a bigger money sink than investing in your set.  As to web browsing, email, porn, etc, your PC likely doesn't *need* the upgrade.


That handful keeps getting smaller and smaller. With services like GameFly and buying only the must-have titles, I'm guessing you could save up for a decent home theatre for the same cost as a "new rig" which will load web pages that say "PC version cancelled; buy NOW on X360/PS3" a lot faster. slywink

I'm sorry, I've owned an Xbox twice.  I've bought "Xbox only" games such as Voodoo Vince (killer app!), Shenmue II, and Otogi.  I prefer greatly the "Cube only" and "PS2 only" games far more than the "Xbox only" ones.  Live is a great asset to Microsoft, but I see that playing field being quite level when the next-gen consoles are released.  What else is there?

Not too much.

So please, don't berate me just because I don't want a 360.  And your whining about Mario 128 and Super Smash Bros. sounds like you haven't even tried playing any of the newer Mario games or the Cube Smash Bros. because they're just too darn "kiddy" for you.  And that's sad.

*Forgot to add - the 360 gets FFXI with updated graphics!  Great!  Except I can renew my account and get a patch for the PC version that I have already.  Bummer.


I will NOT berate you for not wanting a 360, and your opinion is as valid as mine. I would like to point out that games like Crimson Skies, MechAssault, and the Halo series (whether or not you like it) and PGR step up and say "quality" first party games.

The new system is tackling the RPG famine that the XBOX was subjected to. They've given Live free to people to use on weekends. They've addressed every gripe point that makes sense.

You mention that MS has lost their online advantage. Has Sony announced a consistant system across all games (so you have a gamertag)? Have they announced integration and interaction online with something other than gaming? Not really, no. They've been saying "Look at our REAL*cough*prerendered*cough* Gameplay movie."

Nintendo has said : look, we have a box here. It will play all the games you've loved from the past. Oh, but you're going to have to pay for them again. (so basically business-as-usual). To be fair, they're trying to draw focus back to current gen. And yet, have very little to show for it. Nintendo's Metriod travesty (adventure game my ass), the lacklustre Zelda games (although good, not the second coming) leave a lot to be desired. I own a GC, bought it used for 10 bux (canadian). I don't regret that purchase, and will keep it.

Does it get the same play time as my Xbox? Not even close. Did I enjoy Mario Party? Yeah. Do I go out and buy new GC games? Never. Always used, and easy to find. Even RE4 was easy to find a week later for $20 cheaper.

I see the Xbox360 as a real contender to Sony's current market share. Sony's first-gen games are going to be going up against MS's second gen stuff; you know, the games where devs are starting to tap into the power of the system and are in the "groove".  I can't see why, at $299 why I wouldn't want a system that has more power than my PC, and replaces the entire entertainment section that my desktop PC has had to fulfill. Plain and simple, it's going to be a good year.

MS can screw it up; but if they do it will be controlled and recovered. They've finally started to get into the groove themselves, and frankly there is a LOT of potential.

Sony's PS3 may be in my future (price-dependant), however the Revolution is less likely to be added to my collection at initial release. I want to see a bountiful library of fun and innovative games worth my dropping phat cash.

My name is Purge, and I am not a fanboy.

I'd pick Jade Empire over KOTOR2 any day of the week. If we were comparing HGOTY (h for half-finished or half-assed) then my money would be with KOTOR2... it had me at hello, and lost me 1/2way.

Didn't Half-Life2 come out this year or was it last year? I don't recall, but that game sucked me in big-time. WoW was a Mid-Jan start for me, I enjoyed that too much for quite some time. Then.... it waned.

Phantom Dust is definately Sleeper hit for me; given the dialog is about as horrible as it gets, the game and the gameplay mechanics are incredibly balanced, challenging and stunningly beautiful. I hope to see a Phantom Dust 2 in the X360 lineup.

GTA SA was meh.

Yeah, I'd say Jade Empire. sofar. It doesn't have an unstoppable crowning though, and there is much left to game.  Oh, and it's beginning of 8th month.. that means we're ALMOST 2/3, not at the 3/4 mark. slywink

I think there's a big difference between "microsoft haters" and "not remotely interested in even a single X-Box 360 launch title".  Just like the PSP, I think the 360 has great potential, but until they release some games that I'm interested in, I could care less about it.


Or, you might just mean you *couldn't care less*. slywink I see enough promising titles, and since the ex-box is going to the ex-wife I need a replacement. With games like PGR3 and Ghost Recon, I can see myself satisfied for quite some time. With any luck, the Fable(d) best RPG ever may actually LOAD faster on the 360.

Quote from: "Xmann"
I pretty much just push the punch and kick buttons and somehow get some occasional combos off.  I was doing ok till i hit an opponent in the story who i'm assuming is sorta a Boss and he kills me everytime without a challenge.  So my question for those with experience is how complex is it to learn some moves and combos and get decent with the game?  I realize it takes practice but if it means learning a 10 key sequence then i think i'm over my head.  


K, Xmann, here's what you do.

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Select, Start.

no, wait, that might be wrong.... slywink

Go into the practice mode, and choose a character you want to learn. Once you're in the dummy mode (where you can punch and kick an opponent) hit start, and in the menu there should be a "training" or "practice" option (I don't remember offhand which one it is). Also note that in standard battles you can always pause and see the complete moves list too.

They will take you through EVERY move the character has. Just note that some moves (only 3 or 4 of them) where they indicate a direction, you need to be coming OUT of that direction. (for instance, if it says down, X, X, Y they may want you to crouch FIRST, and then as you let go and are STANDING UP you hit X, X, Y).

Unlike Tekken, the moves in DOA:U aren't like programming a 15 string combo. The longest combo in the game is Ryu Hyubasa's spinning upside-down piledriver move, most of which is full-circle moves (so the string would be up, upright, right, rightdown, down, downleft, left, left up etc etc..)

Each character has a training mode, and some of the training modes may unlock costumes or characters (it's been a while since I played it).

Good Luck  biggrin

Yeah, the whole "pay extra for hdd version" is a load of BUNK, IMHO.

Analysts didn't think the Xbox would be successful or nip into Sony's margin, they thought it would be more expensive (who'd wanna lose $150 a console at the cash registers??).

They're predicting this based on the earliest reports, and what they see as most feasable. I recall MS stating at some point that the HDD is included; the "removable" aspect is for portability, not component sales ... this was just prior to E3, and just after the MTV show. Until then, the dual package was all the rage on the boards. Then that talk seemed to go away except with analyst reports.

The fact that they've added free weekends for Live and are building in the DVD playback without needing a kit are two clear signs that MS is listening to the user base of the existing XBOX, not the "market analysts". Yes, you need to buy a separate recharge kit / battery for your xbox controller (as the cost-per-controller of that is too much to eat), but hey, we all have NiMH2300 AA batteries we can use until we get tired of switching them, right?

I wonder how many analysts are gamers? slywink

I'm in a single dad life now. I'd have to say that adpoption is a long and difficult road, moreso than child-bearing. The countless scrutinies, the waiting lists, etc etc. That's not to say I disagree with adoption, but really, you almost have a different mentality going into it. Pregnancy changes your chemical balance (for new moms AND dads) and also alters your mental process. There are switches in your mind that are never activated until you become a parent, and I know in my experience the caring for the pregnant mother and then going through (very hands on) with delivery and raising the child from the first time they open their eyes flicked on those for me.

I don't know about the adoption route, it seems so much more ... clinical. Like picking out a dog at the pound. You see what you want, and it seems right at the time, but you'd have to give 200% effort to appreciate the child for who they are and not for whom you want to mold them into. (as preconcieved notions are easier when there is a CHOICE.

Re-reading what I've written, I think that trap exists in both circumstances, but it's predominant in the adoption path. I suppose that explains the exhaustive screening process.

I also hope I can use my existing FFXI character in the X360 version, but I don't know if they're just going to have a dedicated server or how the keyboard / voice-comm is going to work ...  confused


Do the PC and PS2 versions run on seperate servers?


I can answer this one, as I'm a FFXI veteran.

Chronologically here are the releases:

PS2 Japan
PC North America ( / Japan I believe)
PS2 North America
Xbox360 (worldwide??)

The first three are all on the same servers. Trust me, there was tons of bitching when the N/A PS2 gamers hopped on board. PC gamers are whiners. (I am more tolerant than some; I was happy to have consolers join our Linkshell).

As to the pic above, DAMN that's gonna look hot in my livingroom.

Girls, I'm out for 15 minutes. If you need anything, I'll be in the kitchen makin' a sandwich. Well, a second one. - Me

I doubt the controler with the keyboard will be very light, however.


It's not like they're mailing you a 1950's typewriter and a bottle of epoxy to attach it. slywink It's like a blackberry keyboard.

I've been playing DW since 3 (as the games before 3 aren't really the same). Since I'm an Xbox gamer, I've been relegated to DW3 and DW4. DW5 comes out in the next month or so, but no XL's on the 'box. I really hope Koei wisens up for the Xbox360.

Oh, as to thumbs...
