According to Gamespot we should be getting footage soon of Metal Gear Solid 4, Devil May Cry 4, Gran Turismo 5, Getaway 3,  Tekken 6, and another Killzone.


For the PS3 or the PS2?

And good lord is that controller teh ugly.

Man, if that's the PS3 (and I have serious doubts that it is, given how early it is), then I'm right out.  No way I'm setting up a system vertically in my setup, and that sure doesn't look like it's made to be set down flat.


I would guess that the bottom of it would be flat.

My PC, Xbox, and PS2 are all hooked up to my TV. So, I am so confizzled as to what to do.

Though, by the time the X360 comes out my PC will be weak as sin compared to the X360. Haven't heard ANYTHING about new graphic cards for PC's and whatnot. So I'm not sure if I should upgrade some stuff now or later...*Sighs*


From what I have heard, PC's won't have anything until early 2007 that can do what the Xbox 360's graphics card can do.


Is the graphics card for the new X-Box going to have more features that it can do (i.e. pixel shading, etc), or is it just more powerful than the current cards?

2409  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I can't find it anywhere, Is Xbox360 backwards compatible? on: May 13, 2005, 05:36:32 PM
It looks like it may be backwards compatible.

Quote
However, the video did contain some footage that Microsoft didn't want the public to see. Namely, the several shots of current-generation Xbox games--including MX vs. ATV Unleashed and Halo 2--being played on the Xbox 360, which means that, at least in the testing stage, it is backward compatible. There is also a screenshot of the new Xbox Live dashboard with the words "Xbox 1 Zone" clearly marked and an icon of the current Xbox title Fable. Finally, a screenshot of the forthcoming Xbox Live Marketplace clearly shows Halo 2 maps being offered for download.


Might make sense why the HD is now standard for all X-Box 360 consoles.

Yep, I can't believe they didn't show it on the MTV show. Oh well, next week we will get to see it in motion, cause the devs have confirmed a trailer will be released next week for the game.
Yes there will be a trailer and it will floor you.  I know because I did about 90% of the footage for it.


Can't you just show it to us now? We're all brothers here.....  :wink:
2411  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's May 12 - finally! XBox/ MTV reminder! on: May 13, 2005, 02:06:58 AM
Almost all the game footage seemed to be pre-rendered and not in game (minus Perfect Dark and Tony Hawk), did it not? Really hard to tell anything about the games based on the 30 minutes of fluff.
2412  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 05/11/05 on: May 12, 2005, 07:40:29 PM
But there's no reason to think that "it" got out before - perhaps once  it was put into the vault it stayed in the vault  (it didn't necessarily come from the vault originally).

Plus, who's to say that there's a latch on the inside? Perhaps there's no handle on either side of the vault.

New theory - maybe the vault is something like Pandora's Box. The light that shone through the vault's window seemed a lot like the light coming from Marcellus' suitcase in Pulp Fiction.

Or maybe I've just been playing too much God of War.  :wink:
2413  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 05/11/05 on: May 12, 2005, 02:02:38 PM
In the previews for next week, they showed the raft being pushed into the water (though never actually making it to the water). Then the showed Sawyer running around in the jungle. I don't know if those clips are in chronological order, but I got the feeling that the raft doesn't make it out.

The only one I can't understand is Sayid.  His logic, if you could call it that, that 'if there is no way to open it from the outside, it must mean it was never meant to be opened from the outside'  certainly had me scratching my head.  I mean, is he afraid of getting caught trespassing or something?  Who gives a crap what was 'meant' to be, just open the frickin' thing!


I think Sayid believes that whatever was locked away in the vault is dangerous - maybe even what killed all the other people. Releasing it, even 16 years later, probably isn't the safest thing to do.

I think X-Box 360 is pretty silly myself. What does it even mean? It's coming back to where it started?

I would have gone with something like X².

Starcraft is the best of the RTS games (still), IMO. You are right about the competition, though - anyone still playing it online is probably pretty good. Of course, you could always play team battles or a team vs. a CPU team.

Why buy it when it comes out if you know you aren't going to play it right away? By waiting, you can probably find a better deal on the game (or trade for it).

FWIW (which is probably nothing), a small part of an article in the most recent EGM said that they've heard that some "big name developers" are switching their games from X-Box 360 to PS3 because the PS3 is vastly more powerful. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if such graphics were possible in the next generation systems.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo. I really don't know how good I am, but when I used to play it in college no one could ever beat me (and we had a lot of people playing it). I would even play as Dan (who drops only red colored blocks) and still I would win.

I got the Pelican screen guard and it sucks. It applies to the PSP just fine, but it makes the screen look dim and slightly grainy. I'm going to replace it with something better soon.

2429  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution - touchpad controllers? on: April 21, 2005, 05:05:05 PM
Quote from: "mytocles"


maybe I'm missing something, but how can each game "map out it's own button layout on the controller" - will buttons of some sort be displayed or marked on the touchpad?


That is how I read it - the controller will display the various buttons needed on the touchpad itself. So some games will have more buttons that others and some will have the layout of the buttons differently arranged (I assume this holds true for the d-pad as well).

2431  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution - touchpad controllers? on: April 21, 2005, 12:53:03 PM
I don't know if this has been discussed before, but the new issue of Game Informer says that their sources (game developers already working on games) tell them that the "revolution" part of Nintendo's new console will be the touchpad game controllers. There will be no analog stick or buttons; rather, each game will map out its own button layout on the controller. The same developers said that Nintendo has told them that no game will be approved for their system unless it uses the unique features of a touchpad (which would seem to hinder ports from other systems).

Has anyone heard this from other sources? Is Game Informer usually reliable about these things (this was the first issue I've read)? I suppose it sort of makes sense considering the DS and all. Personally, if the report is accurate, I'm not sure how mainstream Nintendo's next console can become; no tactile feedback on games (even just in using an analog stick) would seem to be a greatly missed feature.

Quote from: "Sepiche"

Do the designers of games like these understand the difference between a puzzle and a chore?  The puzzle in the room is simple: find the buttons, open the door, then hit a button and race to get through the door before it closes.  Easy enough.  But everytime I miss a jump I have to go back to when I entered the room... before I fought a long ass battle.  No option to save at any point in the room.

s


Is this the room where you have to jump over the moving razor blades from platform to platform until you reach an area with multiple doors that need to be opened?

If so, there should be a save point to the left of the room's entrance, right before you jump on the first platform. I saved after I opened any door or killed any monster (it's much easier jumping back to the save point since there is no time limit).

This criticism concerns me more than any other:

Quote
Less free-roaming and more tightly scripted than KOTOR (there is nothing, naturally, in the Empire that would encourage planet-hopping around the galaxy as in KOTOR), Jade Empire leads you on a tightly controlled path peppered with "optional" quests.


One of my main complaints about KOTOR was that the game was too linear. If this review is accurate, it looks like Jade Empire is worse than KOTOR in that regard.

Question - does Progressive Scan make all the difference? I tried to turn it on but apparently my TV doesn't support it. frown


Progressive Scan makes a world of difference; the graphics are much more crisp  in 480p. I do, however, sometimes get some slight distortion with the progressive scan (almost like artifacts). But that is rare enough that I don't really notice it.
