When did Sam Jackson become a nerd anyhow? Playing a part in Star Wars,  hosting the videogame awards show, starring in Snakes on a Plane which was only popular on the internet, and doing voice-overs for an anime? He has to play WoW, and I want in his guild  ninja Can you imagine him in vent/teamspeak during a raid? "We wiped!? Motha fucka!"

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.
4803  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Interesting read on 360 vs PS3 on: January 05, 2007, 05:25:44 PM
so interesting to hear the 360 can keep up and in someplaces overtake the ps3

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

120 GB hard drive!  Take that Hetz!  I wonder how much that's going to go for separately.

Fixed that for you.

4806  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.
4807  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Crazy glamour photo airbrushing on: January 04, 2007, 06:14:03 AM
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.

Word. How many girls (and women) look at those pictures and think that's what they're supposed to look like. How many eating disorders, self esteem problems, etc etc have been fueled by shit like this.

True, but how many have been encouraged to diet better and exercise more?
4808  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rare founders have left the company on: January 04, 2007, 12:14:29 AM
I don't think the Lionhead aquisition was a bad decision, a lot of people liked Fable and are looking forward to Fable 2 on 360.
4809  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Need a new DS game on: January 03, 2007, 12:54:40 AM
What about New Super Mario Bros?
4810  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
4811  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap- End of '06 on: January 03, 2007, 12:36:25 AM
I've been busy with my GameCube lately, put in about 10-15 hours into Wind Waker and about 5 into RE4.
4812  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (1/1) on: January 03, 2007, 12:34:05 AM
Hopefully I'll get around to picking up Castlevania: PoR on the DS.
4813  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's starting to look like March might hurt the wallet pretty badly on: January 02, 2007, 05:32:46 AM
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.
4814  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Need Wind Waker help (spoilers) on: January 02, 2007, 05:29:41 AM
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.
4815  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.
4816  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's January 1, 2007: What's your most anticipated game? on: January 02, 2007, 12:36:23 AM
If I had to pick one game it would probably be Mass Effect.

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.
4818  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Any Onimusha fans? on: December 31, 2006, 05:29:59 AM
I always felt like Devil May Cry was what Onimusha should have been, in a way. The controls were way too Resident Evilish for me.
4819  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Twighlight Princess or Wind Waker? on: December 31, 2006, 05:21:37 AM
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

4821  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 10 years of Diablo and on: December 30, 2006, 11:18:00 PM
Reading that makes me miss playing those games back in the day. I never played any of them hardcore like a lot of people did, but they were friendly towards casual players as well.
4822  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: FF12: Revenant Wings images on: December 30, 2006, 11:03:55 PM
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?
4823  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Twighlight Princess or Wind Waker? on: December 30, 2006, 10:58:25 PM
As long as you've activated the teleports and have a lot of rupees and upgraded rupee bag, the Triforce hunt isn't that bad.

The teleports you refer to are the cyclones right?

4826  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Twighlight Princess or Wind Waker? on: December 30, 2006, 05:58:11 AM
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.
4827  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Planet Receives Lukewarm Reviews on: December 30, 2006, 05:47:29 AM
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.
4828  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Decline of the PS3 Gray Market on: December 30, 2006, 05:36:13 AM
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.
4829  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Twighlight Princess or Wind Waker? on: December 29, 2006, 06:33:36 AM
I just started up Wind Waker and have logged around 6-7 hours into it, I love it so far. I can't believe I didn't play it when it came out (guess I didn't own a Cube then). I'm wondering, however, what those of you who have played both think is better?
4830  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tekken: Dark Resurection on PS Store on: December 29, 2006, 06:27:01 AM
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.

4832  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3's at Best Buy this Sunday on: December 27, 2006, 07:41:27 PM
Wow, that sort of thing must be happening EVERYWHERE.

No one ever said that, but it reflects what others have been saying about PS3's sitting in the stock room.

I was wondering when you were going to show up in this thread, Ridah, and let us all know how the PS3 is failing miserably.

Oh come on guys, stop putting words in my mouth  crybaby

4833  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3's at Best Buy this Sunday on: December 27, 2006, 07:35:47 PM
Yeah, I am pretty impressed with Sony and their ability to get these things into stores. Kudos to them on getting the shipments out to stores!

Oh come on Hetz, you know that is complete bullshit. I was in a GameStop the other day and a dude was returning a PS3 and asking if there were Wii's in stock (I swear I am not making this up). There were plenty of other people in line and I didn't see anyone jump at the chance to buy that PS3. The fanboys and scalpers did their part, now it's time to see how the rest of the market accepts the PS3.

The thread should be renamed "best selling franchise". I'm sure if games like FF12 or Gears of War were released across 10 platforms they would do pretty damn well too.
