4681  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How much would you pay for a Wii? on: January 10, 2007, 07:50:18 AM
The MSRP itself is a rip-off, I could never justify $250 for last-gen hardware (though I'll probably end up paying anyways). Seriously, give me GameCube price + price for the Wii remote and I'll call it fair.

How does Firefox work? Is it essentially IE but with it's own interface style?

4684  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Can I have an old version of IE along with the newest? on: January 09, 2007, 03:07:16 AM
Basically, software that I need to use for my online class isn't compatible with newer versions of IE so I need to be using IE6 in order for it to work. Do I have to downgrade or can I use my current version of IE for my normal browsing and IE6 just for that particular program?

It doesn't look like I'll have much time at all to play BC the first few weeks it's released, or even further down the line. *Sigh*  icon_cry
4686  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: World of Warcraft: TCG on: January 08, 2007, 12:59:03 AM
Why are you guys buying multiple starter decks? The first starter get is just to get you rolling, from there you should be buying the boosters or even a box of boosters. I've been playing this game for a few months now, my friend and I usually go in half and half on a box of boosters (which goes for $100) and we've bought about three boxes so far. Both of us have 3-4 decks built which isn't hard because the allies and resources are interchangeable between heroes, as well as the neutral abilities.

Just wish I could find one of those in game cards...hence the real reason I've bought so many boosters.

Good luck man, in 3 boxes of boosters, two starter kits, and dozens of boosters, I still haven't seen a single one.

I think it's an awesome game though, the satisfaction of beating an opponent is hard to compare with.
4687  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Prey... on: January 08, 2007, 12:54:16 AM
Prey is definately worth $20, I played through it on the 360 back when it was released and loved it. It has some tough moments, but altogether I enjoyed the storyline, level design, and weapons quite a bit.
4688  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Never played the Gamecube...which games to get for the Wii? on: January 08, 2007, 12:50:18 AM
Well, if your into Zelda, Wind Waker is an awesome game. There's also Resident Evil 4 which is the best RE since Code Veronica on the Dreamcast. Mario Kart: Double Dash is a good multiplayer game. Paper Mario is cool if your looking for an RPG fix. I'm sure the hardcore GC fans will be able to compile a larger list.
4689  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 720p vs 1080i... for gaming. on: January 07, 2007, 09:27:09 PM

I think 720p gives a better framerate than 1080i.   From what I understand there's not much difference until you get to 1080p.

It really depends on the game itself from what I've experienced. For example, playing Tomb Raider on the 360 in 1080i was somewhat choppy, but in 720p it was OK. However, with Oblivion, the framerate was just as smooth in 1080i.
4690  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / This online winter course sucks so far on: January 07, 2007, 01:31:17 AM
So I decided to attempt an online math course during my winter break. There's no book, only online software. The software they gave me doesn't work correctly so I'm a day behind on my lessons, I'm supposed to complete two lessons a day which each take about 2-3 hours so I'm spending like 5+ hours a day doing the homework, I have to fax my damn homework to the teacher, I cant take any of the quizzes because the software isn't working correctly. Jesus, this sucks.  mad

4692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown to include access to Halo 3 multiplayer beta on: January 05, 2007, 05:27:28 PM
This is similar to when Konami was bundling the demo of Metal Gear Solid 2 with Zone of Enders on the PS2. I was working as a sales associate for EB at the time, you wouldn't believe how many people were buying ZoE just for the MGS2 demo. It's almost like the demo was the primary purchase, and the actual game was the nice extra.

Read developer diaries and interviews, a lot of them even say the 360 is stronger than the PS3.

4696  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Research & Markets: PS3 Expected To Win Console War on: January 04, 2007, 05:11:56 PM
There's no way the PS3 could even come near the numbers that the PS2 did, Sony simply doesn't have the ammo that it had last generation. Those hardcore JRPG's are coming to the Wii and 360 as well, and Western RPG's such as Mass Effect and Fable 2 are highly anticipated, so Sony doesn't have a lock on the RPG market like it used to. As far as the racing genre, Gran Turismo isn't the clear king of racing any longer with the likes of Forza and Project Gotham growing in popularity as well. And then there's the Grand Theft Auto series... that was a huge loss for Sony, equivalent to losing a Final Fantasy game if not bigger. Of course, Sony will still have AAA titles definately worth owning the system for, but they don't have a monopoly (well, monopoly might be stretching it) on third-party exclusives like they had last generation. While we continue watching developers join the multi-platform bandwagon, it's going to be interested to see what companies will be snached up by who. MS already realizes this, and that's why they've been slowly acquiring developers to horde in their stables.

I dunno, some of the pics seem fake to me or at least low-quality airbrush jobs. The airbrushing seems WAY overdone, you would be able to tell by looking right away. I mean seriously, some of those girls look like cartoon characters in the after pics. Maxim and Stuff don't do it like that...

Heh, I like how in pic 12 the girl's ass gets lifted and skin smoothed out but the guy remains exactly the same.

4700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rare founders have left the company on: January 03, 2007, 12:50:00 AM
Rare lost it's flare long before this, I'll never understand Microsoft's decision in spending so much on them, let alone the other companies that were outbid by MS for the company.

Ah well, at least MS got Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy creator)  thumbsup

I recall Nintendo is pretty restrictive about what games can be made for their system, too.  But the fact that some violent and mature games like Resident Evil have come out for the system means that either Nintendo is opening up a bit, or Capcom has a ton of bargaining power and Nintendo paid them a ton of money.

To me it doesn't seem like it's Nintendo that is restricting companies from putting out mature games, it's just that there isn't much of a market for them. Eternal Darkness was probably the first real mature game on the Cube and it bombed hard. Resident Evil, on the other hand, is such a strong brand that it probably sold systems. Hell, it's what made me buy a GC.

On Dragonroost it's the little girl bird that helped you out on your way to fight the dragon, the other one is on the Great Tree island, it's the little deku guy that plays the fiddle.

Hmm, well the little deku makes sense, I forgot all about him. But as far as the little girl bird, I don't recall her even playing any instruments. Bleh, what a lame part of the game, I was doing so well up until this point. Thanks so much for the help though, I always have a guilt trip when I check a strategy guide for help, I feel much better about getting hints from you guys.
4705  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Need Wind Waker help (spoilers) on: January 02, 2007, 03:55:58 AM
Ok so I've hit a wall and am completely clueless. In the game, I've just learned the two sage songs, now I have to find someone to take the sages places, correct? The part I don't understand is how the pictures of the instruments on the rock doors (on the fire and ice islands) are supposed to indicate where I need to go next. In the strat guide it says I'm supposed to go to Dragonroost Isle for one of the replacement sages, but I'm not seeing how you would know that. Can someone help clear this up for me? Either the game got stupid or my brain simply isn't making the connection.

One thing about the games for the Wii, it's a new system. New systems never have the games.

The Dreamcast did!   icon_cool thumbsup

I agree that 2007 will be the true battle royale, when the hardware is all readily available.

Another question, this one is a spoiler for anyone who hasn't played WW. I just got to the point where Ganondork was fried in his tower, I went to the sage islands and learned the new songs. I have no clue what to do at this point. The red dragon boat talks about a picture of an instrument on a rock door, but I have no idea what rock door he is talking about.

*After edit*

I looked in my strategy guide and it tells me where to go, but it doesn't say how you figure out where to go. I just wanna know what rock door the red boat is talking about!  crybaby

However, a big thing to me is the relative ease of development and cost for DS versus PSP for developers.  PSP games demand production values closer to PS2 level with timelines and budgets to match.

What are you talking about? One of the most positive aspects of the PSP, accoring to what I read early in it's release, is the relatively low production costs and ease of development. I remember lots of excitement over the possibility of independent developers being attracted to the PSP. Has development on the PSP proven otherwise?

It's really disheartening to hear about the Tri-Force hunt at the end of WW, especially because I'm so in love with this game right now. I just reached the Temple of the Gods, and so far the sailing hasn't bothered me at all (I actually like it, gives me a sense that the world is big), and the gameplay, graphics, and world design (particularly the dungeons) has me wondering how the hell I missed this in the first place. Ah well, I have a strategy guide, I'll keep it handy when it gets to the Epic Fetching Quest part.

I'm sure TP is going to be great, I can't wait to play it. There's no way the visuals can top WW's though, there's way too much personality and creativity in WW's cel-shaded world.

There have been multiple demos for this game, I think most people know what to expect from it anyhow. Still, it sucks to see anything less than stellar reviews coming from a game so highly anticipated. Capcom likes to screw things up occasionally.

That's how I got approval from my girlfriend to put down the $100.

Approval from a girlfriend? Pathetic. Sorry, had to point that out, contuing on with the rest of the article...

The way I see it, it was the scalpers themselves who killed the "grey market" so quickly. When I was working at EB, it seemed like almost every person inquiring about a PS3 had intentions of selling it for a marked up price. Hell, that was the goal of half of our staff who had pre-ordered the system. What ended up happening is the actual market for an over-priced PS3 was much smaller than the supply, so some scalpers got lucky, the rest returned the system or kept it for themselves. I don't quite see how this year's sales of the PS3 are relevant in any way though seeing as how Sony can only sell as many as they can supply, and that isn't many.

Granted, this may be because it's a downloadable title for free, and maybe they're more just trying to whet players appetites for the real high-def Tekken title that we know is bound to be released for the PS3.

Nah, it's $15.
