2441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 2? PS3? Revolution? PC? Check out the screens... (56k) on: May 02, 2005, 01:30:41 PM
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.
2442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ever find a game you were TOO good at? on: April 27, 2005, 01:31:28 PM
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.

You guys might want to stick with the face cover unless you really beat the crap out of your PSP on a daily basis.


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.

Edit: doh! I posted this from my brother's account. This is Captain Caveman.

2446  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).

2448  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).
2451  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The anything BUT Jade Empire discussion thread on: April 12, 2005, 01:25:00 PM
Quote from: "Kevin Grey"


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.

My only complaint about the show tonight - the newborn baby didn't look newborn at all. If they are going to try to have a somewhat realistic birthing scene (did anyone else hear the sounds as the baby came out?  :shock: ), why have a completely clean baby?

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.

There's also those DVD/CD restorers you can buy at Best Buy or EB (called the Game Dr. perhaps). I've used it a couple of times before and it usually works (even for deeply scratched games).
2459  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How I got me a PSP! on: March 27, 2005, 06:15:14 PM
Way to go Rob. Keep talking good about the PSP and maybe you can convince my brother to get one.  :wink:

Just as a side note, if anyone is trading in games they might want to try Blockbuster (at least for games for the newer consoles). In general, they give more money than an EB or Gamestop and right now they have a deal where you trade in 3 or more games and get an extra $5 for each one. Add to that deal the fact that Blockbuster almost always has the "buy 2 used games get 1 free deal" and you can really get some good stuff (they usually have newer used games for sale relatively soon). On Thursday, I traded in 4 games and one DVD for more than enough money to get a new copy of God of War from them.  I'm not sure whether you can get cash or if the trade in is only for store credit, though.
2460  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / God of War on: March 25, 2005, 02:38:36 PM
I have a quick question about the widescreen mode - does it actually show more of the screen (like in DVD's) or is the 4:3 screen just made to fit widescreen? Really it boils down to this: with a 4:3 HDTV, should I play the game in full screen mode or in widescreen?

I read in the new EGM that the game is expected to be around 20 hours. Not necessarily short, but not as long as past Bioware games.

Gran Turismo IV is going to use 1080i, and from what I've read it looks amazing.

I have my doubts as to whether or not that's actually true.  IGN is the only place reporting that, which flies in the face of every other previous preview that said that they weren't even able to get 480p working well.


This review confirms it as well.

It is most definitely 3D...here are the scans from Play Magazine.  The only 2D Castlevania games you'll be seeing will be on handhelds till the end of the world I would guess.
