Definitely getting it for the 360.  It was my favorite recent game on the xbox.
1762  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Review] Fight Night Round 3 (360) on: March 03, 2006, 04:25:57 PM
Anyone else notice that the trainer suffers from dementia during matches?  One minute he's telling me that I'm doing great and dominating the round, and in the very next breath he says that I'm doing terrible and I need to watch out or I'll lose.  That kind of sage ring advice happens all the time for me.  "You're doing great kid, keep it up!  Another round won.  You looked terrible out there!  What are you doing??"  

Huh??  Maybe my trainer likes driving his boxers insane during bouts.

I thought you were very fair to the game.  I noticed you use a different control scheme than I do.  I've been using the default scheme, which controls punches (right and left) with just the right stick, the left stick is used for body movement and moving around the ring.  I'll have to try out the left and right sticks for left and right punches.  How do you move around the ring and bob and weave with that control scheme?

Finally an episode where they throw the story right in the face of the viewer, whether you're ready for it or not.  I liked it.

Quote from: "Hetz"
Fight Night is good, but it has a TON of glitches and it's really a one trick pony. It has amazing graphics, but that's it.


That's harsh, don't you think?  Have you played FN3 much?  It has a lot more going for it than just amazing graphics, things like good boxing gameplay, fun multiplayer, and a fun (although not perfect) career mode, to name a few.  It's certainly not perfection by any means, but describing it as a 1 trick pony is a bit rough.
1769  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Fight Night 3 impressions on: March 01, 2006, 05:33:08 PM
Last night was the first time I had a chance to play FN3 since I bought it a week ago, and wow, this one is a winner.

Some observations:
- Just like in FN2, I press the right thumbstick way too hard for some reason, and gave myself a blister on night 1.  What a sissy!  I don't remember pressing that hard when I play, but sure enough, I have a big blister on my right thumb today.

- Graphics are amazing.  

- The Classic bouts are NOT easy.  

- You really have to fight your style, and minimize the strengths of your opponents.  When I started working Ali's body for 4 rounds straight, he dropped to his knees in the 5th.  I lost 2 bouts before that one for trying to stick and move with Ali.  Was he really that fast for a big guy??

- It's still tough fighting unorthodox fighters, since their punch cues can be really tough to read.  

- Speedy fighters while not my preferred style, are freaking brutal in FN3 when played well.  

- I still don't like the prolonged counter period where your boxer is stuck unable to do anything.  It seems too exaggerated and over the top.

- Flash KOs are sick, and feel very real.  

- This is the first must own game for the 360, even if you're not a boxing fan.  If you enjoy more of a strategic fighting game, that isn't insanely hard or a cheesy button masher, FN3 is great.  It's so refreshing to come from DOA4 where fights last all of 20-30 seconds, to engaging in pugilistic duels that can last the course of a full bout.  I was physically and mentally drained after taking one of the classic fights to the 8th round, but it was very rewarding and felt like a real accomplishment.  Spending 20 seconds in the DOA4 spaz zone never felt rewarding to me.

They're on to you ATB, make a bee-line to the nearest Inn and talk to the Bartender to get pulled back into RL.  I guess I should really be sending this to your character in WoW for you to get this message.  Just remember, everybody you meet or run across in WoW works for them, even the lady that sells cats and the dwarf that sells bunnies.

You’re Neo, or at least the Neo of WoW.  I bet you’ll find that there was actually a character in the game that you were playing with just your subconscious mind.  Is WoW just a device to keep the masses moving forward and compliant?  You’ve somehow figured out how to jack into WoW without even playing.  Freaky.  I wonder if they will still charge you though?

I played a ton of FN2, and was looking forward to FN3.  Is it possible IGN's review copy was a late build that didn't have all the AI stuff worked out?  I just can't believe they would miss the boat on the AI so much that you could stand there and do nothing without getting detroyed on hard.
1778  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Movie studios scaling back UMD movies on: February 16, 2006, 07:26:39 PM
As a psp owner, I never understood the early popularity of the UMD movies either.  They’re expensive, only work on that platform, seem silly to watch when you have a dvd and nice tv at home, and are kind of a pain to watch while traveling.  I have 2 UMD movies, both of which I watched on flights, and short of carrying around one of those UMD entertainment docking stations, holding the UMD up to see it for the length of the movie gets old.  

I haven’t touched my psp since before the holidays.  I don’t own 1 psp game that sucks me in and pulls me away from my PC, xbox 360 or watching tv.  Only when I go on business trips out of town does it really get playtime.  I’m still waiting for a great rpg or even action rpg that will suck me in.

1780  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / best hdtv setting on: February 12, 2006, 05:32:49 PM
I think it also depends on what type of signal or broadcast your hdtv is receiving.  Where I live, Cox broadcasts all of their hdtv channels in 1080i widescreen.  As for games, the only difference I can tell between 1080i and 720p is that sometimes the on screen UI doesn't fit exactly in 1080i.

I liked it.  Did you see Kate's reaction to Jack's lack of interest in her?  It was the kind of unspoken lack of interest a guy shows when he's moved on.  Kate picked up on that loud and clear, and didn't like it.  

I also liked the bomb his wife dropped on him:

I'm the most happiest about getting a reprieve from Michael's whiney Walt screams.  I was worried when the episode started with Michael.  I don't think I could take another full episode with him at this point.

1786  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / xbox 360 graphic mode question on: January 17, 2006, 10:50:57 PM
I hooked up my 360 to my LCD tv that supports 720p, and my regular 36" tv that supports only 1080i, and the only difference I noticed between 720p and 1080i is that the interface for some games doesn't line up as nicely in 1080i.  PDZ actually has part of the ammo counter off the screen in 1080i (that's with the dashboard set correctly to 1080i).  

As far as quality, I couldn't really tell a difference between the two.  1080i looks great and so does 720p.  

On a sort of related note, I noticed that all of the HD channels through my local cable provider (cox communications) broadcast in 1080i and not 720p for some reason.  Also, i just bought a new dvd player that will almost always default to 1080i hardware upconvert rather than 720p.  On another somewhat related note, why the hell are HDMI cables so freaking expensive?  I love the idea of not using the mess of HD component cables, but ack, $75-100 for an HDMI cable?

Any scary game, as well.  I seriously go in telling myself, "I need to love this genre." and I return the game or whatever EVERY TIME.


I feel your pain.  First person horror games are not fun for me, no matter how great the game is.  I can think of several that I attempted but could never finish.  My ideal fun gaming experience doesn't seem to include diving into an alternate reality of terror.  Great games on this list that I really wanted to play and enjoy:

System Shock2
The Undying
Fear

I know I'm missing some...

What's funny is that I'm ok if the game is in 3rd person, but not 1st person.  Even Vampire:Bloodlines was tough for me to complete (twice), and my character was a monster!

1792  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dogs - What Breed? on: January 10, 2006, 11:16:07 PM
One of the funniest things I've ever seen is when a border collie's herding instinct kicks in with little kids, and they start trying to herd them around the front or back yard.  They will gently nip at them or yank their clothing to pull them back into the yard.  Unfortunately, that sometimes topples little meatheads over onto their backs or fronts.  I've even seen border collies try and herd groups of small kids, running around them in circles and nipping at any that try and leave The Circle of Trust.  It's fun for the kids at first, but when they realize that a dog is bound and determined to not let them leave the front yard, they get a little feisty with the animal.

What about Atlanta taking him?  He's already spent a year traveling with them for a season.  Mike would presumably be there to help keep his younger bro in check, and to help mentor him.  If Mike were to go out with an injury, they'd have a back-up that potentially would play somewhat similar to Mike.  I would imagine the peer pressure from Mike, especially if he put himself out there to take care of him, would be tremendous.
1794  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gaming in Hi Def: How do I tell the difference? on: January 09, 2006, 03:49:24 AM
What gellar said.  Also, if I'm not mistaken, while 480p is technically a high def signal, 720p and 1080i are HD standards now.  The difference between 480p and a broadcast or game in 720p or 1080i is pretty significant. My old xbox looked better with the hdtv cables at 480p than with the s-video cables at 480i, but the difference wasn't huge.
1795  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Or Alive 4 - Time to bring it! on: January 06, 2006, 05:11:08 PM
What’s the deal with the online lag?  Could it be from using the wireless connection?  Every other game I’ve played on xbox live doesn’t seem to have lag, but then again maybe they’re not pushing as much data as quickly as DAO4.  My online fights are so much slower, with lag hiccups spattered throughout the fight.  I haven’t tried hosting a match, so maybe that would help.

I did manage to win a few last night, but it’s tough with the lag hiccups.

Hey I know this!  Kasumi is the character I’ve spent the most playing, she’s also one of the only characters that has a move requirement that isn’t listed as its own move in her command list.  So unfortunately, it’s not as simple as going back through her list and finding the command for the prereq move (Otoki sp?).  

Here’s what you do (and there are several moves that trigger Otoki):

The easiest way to trigger the Otoki slide is to just hit the Left Trigger and immediately tap right or left.  Kasumi will slide forward in a blur.  If you’re too close to her foe, you won’t see the slide, so back-up a little.  During her Otoki slide you can press F (same as G+P) and she’ll pull off the final move.  This is technically a throw even though it looks like a chop or slice, and it can be interrupted with a simple punch.

You can also trigger Otoki by hitting the right trigger and tapping right or left in the direction you want to slide.  The only difference is that she starts with a kick before the slide rather than a chop.  

Another way is to just hit PPK followed by tapping right or left.  

During the Otoki slide/rush Kasumi can use F for the chop slice move (throw), tap P for a power forearm strike, or hit KK for a rising double knee strike.  The kick and punch are both great and seem to take opponents by surprise since they happen so quick.  All 3 of these can be used with any of the above Otoki  

I hope that’s what you were asking.  If not, disregard.   biggrin

Nice!  Good info.  Something else I can add to my Kasumi arsenal.   :twisted:


I forgot to mention that you need to tap in the direction of her foe.  It's fun to use in combination with the up+F grab from a distance.  If she's far enough away she'll slide in quickly, pause for just a split second, and then leap up and onto her opponents head into a thigh grab.  Most players seem to just pull back to block, rather than get ready for a grab.  She actually jumps a good distance with that grab move to leap onto their head.  Can you tell I've been playing Kasumi too much?

I think I finally hurdled part of the learning curve today.  I'm not sure if this is decent, but I managed to get to 27 in survival without going down.  That felt pretty good.  I also went 15-6 against the AI in versus mode today.  Not sure what changed, but things just seemed to click.  I did win 1 online match today, but the lag has been awful in pickup matches.  It's like trying to fight watching a slideshow.  It's been like that for me since lastnight.  

I got to alpha 152 in about 7 minutes in time attack, and then spent another 10 minutes fighter her lol.  Her grab moves are crazy.
