16761  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion isn't coming until Q2 2006 on: November 02, 2005, 02:08:17 PM
I think it's part of the 11011011 panic.

EEK! Binary!! (or a REALLY compact keyboard).

I suspect that they'll "find" another million units... DOH! We left them in the laundry room! I *knew* we had more somewhere...

I'm in the top 10 pre-orders at my EBGames; I'm not worried. biggrin

ditto.

I'd appreciate it if Big Bethy gets this one right. I don't care if it takes time.

As to Kathode, I'm glad you're a member of our Trendy Gaming Community. I do not hold you personally responsible for the release of any games or even their quality. If you put up graffiti in ES:Oblivion that says something to the effect of "IN! -Devil" I would definately laugh my jolly fat ass off though. biggrin

One doesn't release a battleship with a "prototype gun" ... it sounds more like a plot device in countless anime movies. Those guns tend to blow out the hull of it's OWN vessel before anyone elses. slywink

There are mfg costs to going to a new product, and for some reason Sony thinks they'll dominate the market with it. There was an article released a few weeks ago about upgrading a DVD assembly line to release Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD... the cost difference was staggering. (several mil to hundred-thousand). You can bet that's going onto the sticker price.

Joe Blow ain't gonna see the difference, or care. Hell, they STILL sell Full Frame disks. You think the average movie-buying public is going to go and buy the more expensive Blu-Ray for shits'n'giggles? Big wheels turn slow, and the world market is one BIGASS wheel. Hell, you can still get CD/Tape-decks in brand new cars. TAPES!

MS is happy with offering people with a DVD player, Media Center connectivity (so they DO pander to a niche market!) and all things internet. Oh, and games. Right, games too.

I think (personally) that the price will be prohibitive and it'll end up falling flat. Since their console is going head-to-head with big N's release time, they just might find themselves at the back of the bus. I'll buy a revolution over a SPIDERMAN3 err, PS3 any day. Cost and fun factor, plus the 360 will already have the larger library of games so the draw isn't there.

And NO, playing PS2 games on a PS3 ain't a motivator. I don't have enough time in my life NOW to play all the games I have, let alone trying to finish a library of games designed to run on 1998/1999 technology.

As to switching disks ... hrm, as I see it if I need to get up to switch disks, I better have gotten a few hours play out of that disk first. That's a developer design issue, not a storage issue.  I'm not going to blame Jeep if I can't bring home a jungle-gym I bought because it's only sold as a one-piece unit. I mean, really. biggrin

Actually, she was QUITE the cute little beauty. I don't think that pic does her justice. Note my new pick on the side; If I'm not mistaken thats the worst schwag we got from that E3. I've got a few other pics of her (one is with PJ "Jack Burton" Lorenz. smile )

I'd post it, but it would be up to him to do that.

And if this were Mad magazine, then it'd at least be worth picking up.

As I understand it, the staff aren't paid all that well. They're here cuz they LIKE it. This is their long-term effort with a perk or two (reviewing new games once in a while).

If Ron wants to spout shit about other sites / mags, etc... it ain't gonna hurt his "business model" if you take offence to it. I'm sure it wasn't meant as a jab though; he replied to the critique on page one. (which is why I left it alone, myto)

LE, I see your point on the 4/10 thing, you were going with information that was available at the time from a reasonably reliable source.

I think you were a little heavy handed which did a lovely job of bringing up peoples pressure.

Good job, buddy. slywink

I'm hoping the 4/10 review is one nut-job who just didn't care to try and understand the game; judging games on technical merit alone seems wrong, but on the other hand judging artistic value is a crapshoot at best.

Bethesda is NOT the developer of the game. They are the PUBLISHER.
Ok.  I'll change a word and my point will remain the same.

Thanks for the semantics lesson.


Bethesda's already been in it for millions, at this point it needs to go to market. Maybe they should have dropped the game two years ago at a loss; instead they gambled. As it turns out it may not be a horrible stinker ... mediocre, perhaps, but not such an abysmal failure that it deserves 'bashing'. I mean, 80% ain't bad.

It's not a semantics lesson; that would be teaching people to quible about little things. Millions of dollars, from my perspective, isn't little.

I find it odd that Adv. Warfighter is there. Take it with a grain of salt, but it IS from MS's site. I went there while going to win an xbox360 from the canadian pepsi promo.

UPDATE: They took down that page. Hrmm.

Also, they announced (via an email ) that Xbox.com was changing along with live for yesterday; it seems this is truly the case.

Looks like I got a peek up their skirts.. let's see if it's still in my cache.... I doubt it though; the list was a scrolling animated setup, not static html.
