4921  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Only 500k at launch? on: September 07, 2006, 05:19:11 PM
I think the Wii is going to be huge in the first few years of the generation, but I honestly think the horrible graphics power and novelty of the controller will wear off after just a few years. I simply can't envision any longevity in the Wii's lifespan. As for 360 Vs. PS3, its hard to say. In the beginning Sony's loyal fanbase will push system sales but really it comes down to which console has the best exclusives between the 360 and PS3, the price of both consoles, and how much better PS3 game's graphics look than 360 towards the end.

Sony can ship as many consoles as they want at launch, they are gonna be hard to find for the first year regardless of how many they ship.

4923  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil 4. Am I Crazy Insane? on: September 03, 2006, 06:10:57 PM
I have a unique perspective on Resident Evil 4. I was a huge fan of RE1, RE2, and RE: CV. Couldn't get into the rest. I basically bought a GameCube to play Resident Evil 4. I thought it was a crummy Resident Evil game, it just didn't have the atmosphere I was expecting and the storyline didn't feel true to the series. However, as an action game in it's own right, the game was tremendous.

As an RE game, no good. As an action game, awesome.

You guys say that the graphics are good, but I had problems with Vsync and frame rate during the demo. Has that been cleared up?

Because, as I pointed out, you're just not buying a product, you're supporting the company behind it by giving them money and telling them "hey, keep doing what you're doing, I'm ok with it!"

What exactly do you care, as a consumer, how the business is running? It's not YOUR job to fix EA's job quality issues or business methods. Let the Better Business Bureau handle that. So they bought the NFL license, it's not like other companies can't make football games now, their games just can't feature any players from the NFL. If you wan't to hate on someone, hate the NFL. Stop going to football games, never watch them on TV.

Like I said, I've always enjoyed EA's products and continue to enjoy them. As a person who simply likes to play video games, that's the only thing that concerns me. I absolutely have zero intention of investigating into a company's practices every time I buy a game.

Yep, made by the people made the Riddick game. Lets hope that they can get stealth right in this one.
4927  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Why the EA hatred? on: August 23, 2006, 06:09:16 PM
The way I see it, it's simply a fad. Who cares if some EA employee's wife is bitching? EA isn't the only company guilty of that type of work environment within the industry. Why do people who don't even play sports games care if EA owns the NFL license? What pisses me off is people are hating on this company based on their own personal principles, rather than because of the games they put out which is really the only thing as consumers we have a right to judge by. I personally like EA, I like the production values in a lot of their games. Why is it, when you look at all the good RTS franchises out there, Command & Conquer is one of the few still going strong? I love EA for giving the series life. They may milk their games on a yearly basis, but companies like Capcom are guilty of the same fucking whoreness and no one hates them for it.

People are going to hate on EA as long as they are as big, powerful, and important as they are in the video game industry. But let's at least be honest that it's all predicated on bullshit.

I'm considering trading in the game already, I don't feel like back-tracking through the stuff I did just a couple days ago. I didn't have all that much fun doing it the first time  icon_neutral

Valkyrie Profile has tempted me to purchase a PSP... that and my constant disappointment in DS game graphics. I just bought Metroid... has to be one of the ugliest games I've ever played aside from the interface.
4930  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Rising impressions! on: August 13, 2006, 06:15:36 PM
I don't mind the save system in general, I think some of you need to stop being lazy and run your asses to one of the restrooms between scoops to save. I just don't particularly like that I restarted the 72 hour story mode, albeit with my character's updated stats, without knowing I was doing so. I read the manual and everything, I still didn't realize what I was doing. I've heard complaints from other people who did the same thing.
4931  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Rising impressions! on: August 12, 2006, 06:02:52 PM
After my first few hours I wasn't liking the game, it's just so different from what I'm used to playing. However, after a few more hours I started to really warm up to it and enjoy myself. I like how there's so many different ways to take down enemies and complete each scoop. Saving hostages can be a bitch though, once you get them you have to drag their asses all the way to the warehouse, they get caught on zombies along the way, and it's kinda buggy when it comes to them entering new areas.

I had no complaints about the save system until after putting about four hours into the game yesterday, I loaded it up to find I restarted the entire f'ing thing, but my character has the same stats. The fact that I restarted the game and basically lost my progress without knowing I was doing so is pretty lame. I mean seriously, I thought choosing Quit just brought you to the main menu screen or something. Ah well, I don't mind restarting ALL that much I suppose.

I've also heard some pretty bad stuff about hardware issues with the 360...

Hardware issues were more prevailant earlier in the 360's lifespan, at this point there are new revisions of the hardware which are much more stable.

4935  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is there any interest in Dead Rising? on: August 03, 2006, 10:45:24 PM
I think a lot more people are interested in this one than it seems. I thought the game was a riot when I played it at E3, got it pre-ordered and can't wait to dig into it!
4936  Gaming / Analog Gaming / No More E3?! on: August 02, 2006, 01:21:40 AM
This sucks for me being on the retail front. I haven't read whether retail management will be allowed into the show or not, but I'm not paying for the trip for this new "evolved" E3. Fuck that, seriously. I liked the noise, the lights, the babes, and of course the games. I don't see why they couldn't just tone it down a bit in terms of booth setup, I mean I can see why some companies would complain when the booth next to them has a stage with a live musical performance going on. E3 to me has always been about excitement, but now its not there. There's no single event to be excited about any longer, now E3 will come and go and I don't think people will care as much anymore. Its just another trade event.

Ah well, I'm glad I got 5 consecutive years in while I could.
4937  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox 360] Saints Row demo on the Marketplace! on: August 02, 2006, 01:05:39 AM
I haven't played a GTA game since GTA3, and much of it was because I couldn't stand the graphics. This'll be perfect.

I normally don't play demos, but since I'm so on the fence with this one I think I should.
4939  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Titan Quest patch 1.11 on: July 27, 2006, 06:03:45 PM
It says it implemented Time Smoothing which creates less hitches and blur when the character is moving... That's cool but it sounds like a pretty nice effect that should have been added before the game came out.

I was looking at release dates the other day and noticed Lost Planet is scheduled for Feb 2007... wasn't it supposed to come out in August? Has Capcom stated the reason for the huge delay?
4942  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Next Gen Star Wars Trailer on: July 23, 2006, 06:52:39 PM
No way, that video was bullshit. There's no way the game is going to play and look like that, it was definately pre-rendered and if its not then those environment look like shit. Plus, there was no aiming mechanism, its obvious when the Jedi picks up that debri and throws it at the tie fighter.

I'll get excited when I see some in-game footage, assuming it doesn't look crummy like most other Star Wars games.
4943  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prey on: July 19, 2006, 05:16:47 AM
Just beat the game, overall a cool experience but the storyline needed to be more fleshed out. I was very intriguied in the beginning but that tapers off a bit towards the end. The best thing about Prey is the art direction. This game has lots of creepy alien environments and many cool sights. However, the level design towards the end, a few levels in particular, were frustrating as hell. Way too confusing. The ending was also a bit of a let-down.

If I had to rate the game I'd give it a 7/10, definately worth a rental, not quite sure its worth a $60 purchase though.

4945  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DS] Lunar: Dragon Song worth playing? on: July 17, 2006, 12:44:24 AM
I was feeling like playing an old school RPG so I decided to pick up Lunar for DS for only $20, I'm a HUGE fan of Silver Star Story and since this one is made by the original creators of the series, I figured it was a no-brainer. When I came up, I checked out a few reviews and it seems like its been getting overwhelmingly poor reviews.

Any of you guys play this one?
4946  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prey on: July 17, 2006, 12:38:46 AM
Don't get me wrong I love the game, its just a few levels that had me frustrated. Destructor, did you notice the drop in frame rate in some of the later levels as well?
4947  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prey on: July 16, 2006, 08:29:33 PM
I'm nearing the end, I have to say that the game becomes pretty damn frustrating in its last few levels. Its not that the enemies become uber difficult or anything like that, but every fucking room you enter is some sort of level puzzle to figure out where to go, and much of it has to do with scouring every inch of the area until you find a door or control pad you missed. Not only that, but the frame rate seems to be much less stable than it was earlier in the game. It must have to do with there being bigger rooms and objects, but sometimes I wonder if its that Xbox 360 hard drive bug where the data becomes fractured or whatever the hell.

Does anyone remember how to clear the HD cache?

It is very pretty Diablo II with much higher resolutions and the same level of addiction.

Umm, your willing to pay the price for an old-school RPG wrapped in a shiny new package, but not an FPS? Contradiction much?
4952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prey on: July 14, 2006, 04:55:29 AM
Anyone else loving this game? Absolutely gorgeous graphics and level design, the puzzles so far aren't too difficult, I've been stuck for a good 15 minutes or so a few times but I eventually figure it out. I'm also liking the storyline, although its nothing new.

Anyone else get to the friggin cube puzzle yet? The one where your trapped inside a cube and there is seemingly no way out? What the heck do you do here?

The reason you get called out is that you seem to hate just about everything. I'm sure that you can point to some games you genuinely like but I'm sure i'm not alone at being able to recall any of them. And to make matters worse, with you something is never mediocre- if it isn't great, then it's usually some abominable vile piece of trash that has no right to exist.

4956  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / From the Front Page: Wii launch lineup on: June 24, 2006, 03:48:02 PM
Great, lets kick off the world's most innovative and original console with a lineup filled with sequels  :? I agree, the lineup is deceiving. Zelda isn't a true Wii game, its a GC port. Dragon Quest isn't a true dragon quest game, its another game with the same name, another Monkey Ball even though a new one is coming out on the GC almost the same time, Red Steel (does anyone really care about this game?)...

Metroid 3 would be awesome at least.

I've pretty much come to the point where I like my 360 set at 1080i, and if any games don't run well in that mode (ahem, Tomb Raider) then I won't play them. I've been playing around with Moto GP 06 for the 360 which was released last week and I've noticed there seem to be occasional frame rate issues and issues with the vertical sync. Anyone else notice this?
4958  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A blurb about upcoming BC update for 360. on: June 16, 2006, 10:01:05 PM
Quote
Because, as Clanwolfer said, there are those of us with limited financial and spatial resources and I'm not going back and forth between two different Xboxes because Microsoft can't get their shit together. Plain as that. Also consider this - there are exactly zero games out now for the 360 that I consider must-owns. That's going to be changing in the next six to eight months, but right now I have no reason in the world to buy a 360. That's one of the reasons why I enjoyed the PS2 so much. I could play my PS games on it just fine.

I'm not throwing out the library of XB games I have just because Microsoft thinks I'll leap at anything shiny.


I never agree with that excuse. I don't feel like Microsoft holds any sort of responsibility towards us to make the 360 backwards compatible. Like I've said before, no one used to cry about the fact that you couldn't play SNES games on the N64, or Saturn games on the Dreamcast. If you want to play Xbox games, play them on your Xbox. If "spatial resources" are your biggest issue, then obviously you simply don't have room to own any new consoles (which sounds ridiculous to me). Not to mention the fact that zero games in the 360 library interests you, so why do you own one?

Sorry, I don't mean to take personal shots at your or anything but whenever people start demanding MS allocate more resources towards backwards compatibility it pisses me off because I paid $400 to play NEW games and have NEW experiences and I don't want anything to take away from that.
