I'm east coast and haven't received anything yet since the new distribution has opened.  I will say however that i'm happy with the turnaround from the west coast.

Agreed, the turnaround time in the west coast is awesome, I signed up with Game Fly last month and couldn't be happier.
4565  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo and Bungie take shots at eachother on: May 14, 2007, 06:40:43 PM
I thought this was awesome, it starts with Nintendo's Miyamoto taking a shot at Bungie and their Halo series, and Bungie returning fire at Nintendo and Mario. Here's what they said:

Nintendo's shot:

In a new interview with Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Entertainment Weekly's Geoff Keighley asks the video game legend if he feels he's losing touch with American gamers because games like Halo often sell more copies.

Miyamoto responded, "I could make Halo. It's not that I couldn't design that game. It's just that I choose not to. One thing about my game design is that I never try to look for what people want and then try to make that game design. I always try to create new experiences that are fun to play."

Bungie's response:

Speaking to our colleagues at Joystiq, Bungie lead write Frank O'Connor responded to Miyamoto saying, "I just want to go on the record and say that Bungie is hard at work on a side-scrolling platform game featuring some plumbers -- I'm not going to say what their ethnicity is, it's none of anyone's business -- but we took that as a gauntlet, a sort of glove slap, and we're going to respond in 2D scrolling style. That's all I'm saying."
---------

Personally, I see where Miyamoto is coming from with his comment, although it's also easy to see how Bungie may be offended by it. And actually, the full interview of Miyamoto is a really good one if you want to read it: http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20037961,00.html?cid=recirc-peopleRecirc
4566  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Marvel Ultimate Alliance character pack on: May 14, 2007, 06:25:04 PM
The developers don't try to hide those type of character conflicts, I don't think most people who are playing the game really care too much about the storyline enough to make a stink about it anyhow. There are, however, some bugs in the game that I wish could have been ironed out. For example when escorting an NPC, in the case I experienced last night with Dum Dum Dugan, the AI commands don't work properly. I would set him to defense and he would still run his ass to the middle of the fray. Also, because Nightcrawler can stealth, he can literally walk through an entire level without a single confrontation.

How do you get Silver Surfer though? Him, Daredevil, and Panther are the only characters I have left to unlock.

At this rate, it looks like it might be the weakest of the 'next-gen' consoles that'll win this console 'generation'. Again. Anybody have any guesses as to why?

I think it is very short-sighted to even begin trying to determine which console will be the winner, we still have another 4-5 years left! If your asking for a guess as to why the Wii is doing so well, I think we've already determined that it's a fad and simply the popular consumer product right now. If you disagree, ask people who bought a Wii at launch why they don't touch it anymore and don't see too many reasons to blow the dust off any time soon. I really wish Microsoft and Sony would team up and put out a motion-sensor controller identical to the Wii's along with a cheap compilation of sports games, that might put the Wii to bed.
4569  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Marvel Ultimate Alliance character pack on: May 13, 2007, 07:33:53 PM
I've been anxiously awaiting the release of this character pack, me and a friend of mine have played through MUA on normal and have been waiting for the pack to play through it on hard mode. The new characters include Dr. Doom, Magneto, Sabertooth, Venom, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Cyclops, and Nightcrawler. I have to say, these characters bring the game to a new level of coolness. They really made it so that every character adds something to the table and are very unique, the best part is that their super powers look sweet as hell. Magneto is like, the king of Uberness! Anyhow, there's not a whole lot to say, the developers did a really good job of making these new characters as cool as possible, if you were looking for a reason to play through the game again it is certainly worthwhile to develop these new heroes and villains.

4571  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / I dreamt I was being tortured last night... on: May 13, 2007, 06:27:39 PM
So last night I pretty much had the worst nightmare in my 23 years of life on this planet. It started out with some random guy hitting on my girlfriend even though he knew she was with me, so automatically I hit the guy and he in turn goes and calls his friends. Next thing I know I'm surrounded by 4-5 guys (and they looked freaky, like gothic/emo style) and they are beating me to the ground, then I pass out. Then, I wake up (in the dream) and my friend is describing how they were torturing me, but I don't remember any of it. I remember in my mind just thinking "I hope I didn't beg for my life and that I took it like a man". So I'm running home and the run is going forever, and when I get near my house I get a text message on the phone which says "I hope your still bleeding...", when I get home I find a DVD and my torture is on it. I'm watching it and it's insanely graphic, like seriously I can see them cutting me and I see my eyes and their very bloodshot. At this point a guy is about to do something to me when I woke up. It was 5AM and seriously the first thing that passed through my mind was "damn, I need a gun or something for protection", the dream had enough of an effect on me to make me take my pocket knife with me to breakfast this morning.

Horrible dream, the most tramatic part of it was seeing my own eyes all red and bloodshot, it seemed so real...

We just finished the first episode (A New Hope) and have moved onto Return of the Jedi. Still loving the heck out of the game, although there are definately some issues with the controls. A lot of times we get stuck because we think we've tried everything in the room, just to find out we weren't precisely aligned with an access point (or whatever you call those little spots that require C3PO or R2DR to open). Other than that, we're loving the humor, the combat, the puzzles, and I am particularly loving the humorous take on the storyline.
4575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Quest IX on the DS?(confirmed) on: May 11, 2007, 11:53:57 PM
I don't see how this coming to a portable as opposed to one of the next-gen systems is a good thing from a purely entertainment standpoint. It is probably going to be shorter than a console version would be, the graphics are obviously going to poor in comparison, and you have to deal with the discomfort that comes with long periods of gameplay on a portable. I see it as a positive thing for those who only own a DS and were planning to buy whichever console it may have landed on, but otherwise I'd be pretty disappointed if a franchise I loved was getting relegated to portable status.

Well...according to a friend of mine that's a statistician for the Insurance industry; the majority of auto accidents are caused by males between the ages of 16 - 25. Apparently this statistic is consistent throughout North America.

Yeah, that makes sense actually. Second highest is women though right?  icon_twisted Oh come on, just say it!!

Japan proved to be one of the main reasons Sony dominated so well last two generations, and why Nintendo was so big prior to that, but now that their tastes don't align with your tastes, they're not as relevant? Right.

All I'm saying is, Japan is proving to be only capable of supporting one console per generation. Last generation it was Sony, this generation it looks like Nintendo (at least until the PS3 software starts taking off). On the other hand, North America doesn't have a big problem with all three major platforms holding a nice slice of pie, and Europe also has proven to be a market that can support at least two major platforms. If I were a game company, I'd definately be aiming at the more open-minded regions.
4580  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starcraft 2 confirmed (finally)? on: May 10, 2007, 05:36:33 PM
I think people are over-estimating the popularity of Starcraft in the light of Warcraft. People are NOT going to abandon their characters in WoW just to play in the Starcraft universe, and people won't split their time, at least not the serious players. I think it is ridiculous that Blizzard would want to have two MMO's out on the market. I mean, what's next a Diablo MMO? Come on Blizz, stop selling out on us.

4582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How many generations until Gamestop is out of business? on: May 10, 2007, 05:27:23 PM
I absolutely believe that within 1-2 generations we'll be buying all our games via digital distribution. I think we'll see something similar to music where a lot of the brick and mortar stores have begun closing down, music sections shrinking, and digital distribution programs expand. The only difference in video games and music is the size of the downloads. Once download speeds pick up and the hard drives are MUCH larger (we're talking terraflops here or whatever 1000 gigs are) we'll be right there.

Oh and I don't think GameStop will go out of business, they'll just restructure.

Nothing official, but it only makes fiscal sense.  I'd be shocked if they didn't ship simultaneously or pretty damned close to it for 360 and PC with PS3 pulling up the rear a few months later.

Exactly, we'll probably see a release similar to Oblivion except a shorter gap between the 360/PC and the PS3 versions, if not a simultaneous release.
4584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lego Star Wars: the true noob-friendly game on: May 10, 2007, 03:43:24 AM
I know there are games out there that help bring non-gamers into the gaming scene pretty well. Usually they fall into an "alternative" genre such as Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, and even Wii Sports which I consider interactive entertainment rather than a video game in the traditional sense. That being said (basically what I'm saying is, aside from the above listed games), Lego Star Wars has to be one of the best games available to bring in those who don't normally play video games. My girlfriend and I played for more than 3 hours today and she loved it, usually she loses interest in a game within half an hour but she really loved this one and tried to plan for another night to play. The game is very simple and fun, and anyone who has seen the Star Wars movies will appreciate the humor. I'm even surprised at how much I enjoy the graphics, which are beautiful in their own simplistic way. So anyhow, big thumbs up to a noob-friendly coop game  thumbsup

I have to disagree slightly with ATB. It's true that you can't benefit fully from the new consoles without an HDTV, however the games still look much better than what the PS2/GC/Xbox generation has to offer and not to mention there are some really good games out there. If there are any games you are interested, don't let not having an HDTV hold you back.

I'm not a big fan of the Spiderman movies, I don't get excited when they come out whatsoever, but I do enjoy catching midnight releases and a friend of mine was excited for it so I ended up seeing it. The movie as a whole wasn't too bad, but good lord a few parts were horrible. I don't understand why people like Sam Raimi, the guy is utterly devoid of talent from what I've seen so far. Even the actors weren't thrilled about the movie and they hardly hide it in the interviews.

I read through the GT review and decided I will definately buy the game. Then I read the IGN review and this particular blurb hit me: "Anyone hoping that Spider-Man 3 the videogame somehow enhances the feature film will be sorely disappointed". That was my whole reason for wanting the game really, so I'm leaning towards passing now. IGN is also knocking the graphics which to be honest I was already worried about from watching the trailers. I await the impressions of our forum members.
