2441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 more powerful than the PS3? on: May 21, 2005, 12:41:25 PM
As mentioned, it's pretty silly to assume that what's printed is completely accurate considering that it comes from Microsoft itself. On top of that, the preface to the article mentions that MS just changed some of the specs for the X-Box 360 (as a response to what they may have seen from the PS3?); who's to say that Sony won't change the PS3 specs sometime down the road?
2442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Nintendo Revolution on: May 20, 2005, 02:07:56 PM
This isn't encouraging (from IGN interview:

IGNcube: Can we expect Nintendo to collaborate with more third parties on Revolution games?

Shigeru Miyamoto: At this point, we've only been talking with a few companies. However, if other companies come forward and they want to join us to work with us to create games, of course that would be great for us. One thing we want to make sure that we don't do is have too many games of the same type or genre. We don't want too many games involving the same themes or characters.

Sounds like there might be, once again, a dearth of 3rd party support.
2443  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow FOR DS. *sigh* on: May 19, 2005, 08:39:50 PM
I think that certain 2D games could sell on the consoles, though. If another 2D Castlevania, another 2D Mario, or another 2D Metroid was made, I'd bet that it would sell pretty well. Unfortunately, I believe that only established franchises could do reasonably well with a 2D game.
2444  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 Backwards compatible (NOT) on: May 19, 2005, 07:15:21 PM
Isn't the PS3 just as if not more different in architecture from the PS2 than the X-Box 360 is from the first X-Box? Why is it Sony can make their system truly backwards compatible but MS can not?  :?:
2445  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No surprise announcements this year? on: May 19, 2005, 01:14:00 PM
I think the Mini Gameboy was a bit of a surprise. Most had suspected that a new, upgraded Gameboy would be released at the end of the year, not just a different version of the current GB.

Thanks for the tip, by the way. I picked it up today with EB Gamer's Edge card. Haven't really gotten into it yet (the beginning radio talking parts are pretty long), but I'm sure I'll get good use out of it.

Yeah if the Cube can pump out RE4 and that new Zelda graphics, then I'm not worried about 2-3 times better than that.

But it's all about the competition. If Revolution can't compete graphically with the X-Box 360 and PS3, Nintendo will have a hard time making up much ground.

This quote is a bit concerning:

Nintendo makes more modest claims that Revolution is two or three times more powerful than GameCube.

Two to three times? That's nothing. I want power. POWER!!!!!!

 What did NOT impress was GT5 and Devil May Cry 4 (too early perhaps).

GT5 didn't look any different than it does now.
2455  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So where do you stand right now? on: May 17, 2005, 01:34:48 PM
After watching the Sony video, I'm looking forward tothe PS3 more than the X-Box 360. Even games I don't care about (like Gundam) looked pretty damn cool. Of the announced titles for the next  X-Box, nothing really excites me.
2456  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Where can I find a video of that FF7 PS3 tech demo? on: May 17, 2005, 01:28:31 PM
From IGN:

UPDATE: There will not be a Final Fantasy VII remake for PS3. Repeat, there will not be a remake. But, there will be a new Final Fantasy game. We'll have info on that as it happens.

Have you guys checked out the video of Killzone from the Gamespot video? If not, check it out - it's freaking amazing (and looks like in game footage, from what I can tell). If you click on the video of the Sony presentation, it begins around 1:33 (that's one hour, thirty three minutes in).

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.

Quote from: "Sparhawk"
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?
2464  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 2K Sports Lineup on: May 16, 2005, 07:12:19 PM
So no more NFL2Kx since EA bought the license? Or is it just that the X-Box 360 comes out too late?

2466  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.

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:
2468  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.
2469  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:
2470  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.

How do you guys finish these games so fast!  I purchased it weeks ago and have not even inserted it into my Xbox yet.

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).
