Yeah, I really should pick up Saints Row, seems like I really good game I missed out on.
4564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Crackdown Vs. Saint's Row on: March 27, 2007, 09:39:16 PM
So, I've put a decent amount of time into Crackdown now and it seems like a well-done game, although a bit shallow. There isn't a true storyline to the game and as far as missions, your basically on the sole mission to take out the leaders of the three dominating gangs of the city. There are also the "side-mission" style goals, which are collecting the agility and hidden orbs, as well as the races. On top of that, your character is constantly growing stronger. So, how does all this compare to the other GTA-inspired game on the 360, Saint's Row? I haven't played SR myself, but I would love to see what people who have played both think about them in comparison, and which one they think is better.

The irony of this whole situation is that Capcom, with the success of the Wii, is probably now kicking themselves for not having the favourable relationship they previously enjoyed with Nintendo. When they took RE4 out of exclusively they seriously soured the relationship, and I've read that they aren't being offered license discounts/perks from Nintendo anymore. Whether the playstation fanboys like it or not, Capcom has to now max their multiplatform options if they're to maintain a healthy existence.

I don't see Capcom kicking themselves though, from what we've seen the software on the Wii isn't selling that well. Nintendo's games are the only ones making any sort of splash on the sales charts, the rest just seem to sink.

I just finished taking down the first gang, the Los Muertos (sp?). So far I'm having a lot of fun with the game but I really don't see myself replaying the game once I've taken down the last two gangs.

I like what I see coming up in the future, and I am not talking about R&C, FF-whatever and Metal Gear I think I've played this same game 3 times before. I am talking about games like LBP and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. I think stuff like that will make PS3 more compelling, not series re-treads.

Agreed, I could give a damn about the next FF and MGS, I'm looking forward to the original upcoming releases which I've been growing more excited for.

I apologize for my comment about Richard suggesting we sign, I was just angry at the whole thing at the time. It's really a sad day though when gamers don't want other gamers to experience a game because they want it to stay on their "favorite" platform.

4569  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The "gamers" boycotting Capcom are pathetic on: March 27, 2007, 03:26:22 AM
I couldn't believe the story I read on the front page about gamers actually boycotting Capcom for releasing DMC4 on the 360. This is so disrespectful to the gaming culture as a whole, every one of those bastards who have signed the petition seriously deserve to be banned from gaming altogether. How can you deny other gamers out there of enjoying a game because of your own selfish and biased feelings towards other consoles?

I don't understand why Rich Newman from the GT staff wrote this either:

"If you'd like to read the original article on this subject, or want to join the petition, you can visit the original story here.[/quote]

Are you suggesting we sign it?  thumbsdown

I wouldn't play through the game in SP mode, i thought it was awesome with 2-3 people cooperatively. I agree that most of the game is a button mash, but that's kind of the point. Its easy to just jump in and start playing, I also enjoyed unlocking new costumes and upgrading the characters. If you gave up within the first hour you didn't even get to use some of the higher level powers of each character, not to mention dig into the story (which is suprisingly good) or see any of the cool cutscenes between the acts. Not sure what you were expecting in an arcade style beat 'em up RPG.
4571  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Lost Planet impressions on: March 23, 2007, 12:58:03 AM
I'm at the end of mission 6 I believe. So far the bosses are really fucking stupid. I mean seriously, this is more of a battle with the controls and camera than it is with the boss itself. Nice character models and explosions but the level design is horridly repetetive, the control scheme is lame as hell, the grappling hook is pointless, the cutscenes do barely anything to pull you into the story, the main character sucks... The mechs are decent but SO clunky to control. If there's 11 missions then I'm a little more than half way through, to me all the difficulty comes from the controls and the camera. I do enjoy the intense action, but that's about the only thing keeping me going, and I probably won't play the whole way through, the frustrating boss battles just aren't worth it.

As a disclaimer, I don't mind difficult games. I mind games that are difficult because of asinine reasons. I have no trouble cruising through the levels, it's the bosses that are pulling the game down, even though they are pretty impressive.

4575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Marvel: Ultimate Alliance discussion on: March 22, 2007, 06:47:29 PM
M:UA has become the multiplayer game of choice between my friends and I, we had a blast making our way through the game on normal and are now working on a second play through on hard. I was wondering though, what is there to unlock in hard mode that we haven't already unlocked in normal? We have all the characters except for Silver Surfer, Black Panther, and Dare Devil. Actually, the line-up of characters overall seems pretty sad doesn't it? I mean, they give us lame characters like Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and Luke Cage, when we should be getting Cyclops, Gambit, and Nightcrawler. The gameplay, while simple, remains entertaining thanks to the large number of playable characters. Whenever one of us would get tired of our main, we would give a new character a spin. I wish there was a bit more customization for the characters. Having four costumes to choose from is nice, but the color pallette appeared really dark to me. My main character was Wolverine, I was really anticipating unlocking his yellow and blue costume but was disappointed in the lack of vibrance in the colors. I think the main thing that makes this game really attractive is the smoothness of the multiplayer, its so easy for a second, third, or fourth player to jump in and start wreaking havoc.

Anyone else play this a lot MP?

Does anyone else think that this generation could become the most expensive in a long time. The 360 is approaching 18 months on the market and we don't even have a hint of a price drop. The PS3 is pricey and will continue to be there for a while. Game prices, aren't at an all time high, but for a disc based media they sure are. Games cost a lot more to make too, and that obviously has negative ramifications as well as positive. I don't think the sky is falling, but there has to come to a point where people just say no thanks, I'll take my disposable income elsewhere and find entertainment for less elsewhere.

I disagree, it's not just gaming that has become more expensive, it's everything if you look at it all. Hell, my cell phone was only $100 cheaper than my 360. To buy an HD DVD or Blue-Ray player for your movies, your also spending as much for a console if not more. Movies cost in the $15-25 range, and the amount of entertainment you get from a movie for the price doesn't scale like games. If you want music, you have to buy a $200 iPod or some other MP3 player, just to spend $10-20 on albums where 50% of the content is crap.

I don't think anyone seriously expected the 360 to perform well in Japan. Even if it had more games like Blue Dragon being released on a regular basis, the Japanese obviously prefer their own shit whether it's better or not. The point is, however, that even though the PS3 numbers aren't as low as the 360's, relative to it's predecessor (the PS2, obviously) the PS3 is also a failure. The only difference between the 360 and PS3 in Japan is the level of failure.

Secondly, the only place that the 360 is doing very well in is North America. In Japan it is an utter disaster and in Europe, it's not exactly setting any records. So while, yeah the 360 might be on top here, it's probably going to end up in third place, worldwide.

And the PS3 isn't doing spectacular in all three of the territories, so I don't see Sony having that advantage over MS really. The FF games sell just as well in the U.S as Japan, so it would make sense to put the game on the platform with the biggest install base.

No, Final Fantasy XIII would be huge. This, not so much. Practically everyone thought it would with Capcom being so close to MS now anyway.

No, FF12 would be devastating. DMC is just huge.

So yes, Xbox Fanboys can squeal like little school girls that Devil May Cry 4 will be out on the 360. Some people are acting like it's exclusive to the 360 or something the way they are (over)reacting. It's still coming to the PS3 and PC as well, ya know...this isn't that big a deal btw outside of the 360 fanboy circle jerk crowd.

6.  Games -- yes... the games are good!    Resistance was one of those compelling games I was driven to finish -- much like Gears of War was for the 360 for me.    Motorstorm is fast and sexy, and NBA 07 is gorgeous in 1080p.   You can see the imperfections in the parque flooring of the court!

Games were only a sixth of the reason he loves the system, that's why the internet calls it a failure slywink

I don't think anyone in particular is arguing that the hardware itself is lacking or of poor quality, we all know there's a beast under that hood. However, the battle is on the software front.

I've been putting some coop time into Marvel: Ultimate Alliance with my buddy, we're around half way through now. That game is MUCH longer than I expected. I've also been putting in some hours on Splinter Cell: DA, which I'm gradually deciding isn't a very good game (loved Chaos Theory though).
4592  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Yahoo News: Next-gen wars over already??? who won... on: March 19, 2007, 07:14:02 PM
I see the overall console sales a battle between the 360 and PS3, and it's WAY too early to tell which one will take the throne. Remember, this generation is different from previous generations whereas the consoles were designed on the basis of expandability. So, if things go the way MS and Sony want it to, the 360 and PS3 will be around for a longer period than their predecessors.

I can't believe that the PS2 sold almost 300,000 units whereas the Xbox only sold 500

I can believe it simply based on my own purchase history. I bought a 360, and am considering buying a PS2 slim to play a few games from that library. I'm not ready to invest in a PS3 until at least later this year if not early next year, and not even just because the PS3 is expensive, it's not THAT much more expensive than a 360, but I already spent a heavy chunk of change on the 360. I'm sure a lot of people are in the same boat as me.

Another dozen or so attemps, this is getting lame. Seriously when you think about it, if the game is about 6-7 hours long, and I'm already at over an hour attempting RAAM, then this boss fight makes up about a sixth of the game. Ugh, there better be a good ending or this boss fight is going to ruin the game for me.
