I had the same debate when I upgraded to Win 7. But in the end I couldn't justify the price. I really hope the SSDs come down in price soon. I would love to have a 200+ Gig SSD drive running windows and my main apps.

If it did burst, it means that the tank has a crack in it somewhere, so it would continually leak. Seriously though if all it is is the heater core then it doesn't make sense to buy a whole new tank, just buy the core and replace it. They are designed to be replaced every couple of years.
2206  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Water Heater on: February 19, 2010, 01:07:37 AM
You may just have a bum heater core. In which case you can buy a new one for about $30. It's easy to diagnose and install too, just do a Google search for instructions if you can't figure it out. Otherwise you are looking at at least $700 for a whole new heater.

the whole 'no hubs/towns' thing is really no big deal for me - a number of my favorite srpgs don't have them, & still manage to work in every other way (story/characters/gameplay). so yeah, for a jrpg, it's a departure from 'the norm', likely means there'll be no mini-games (cards, chocobo racing), & will be faulted for this (beyond the demo, i'm in blackout mode), but as long as the other stuff i mentioned is there, i'm more than willing to give it a shot smile ...

I usually find towns to be the most tedious and boring part of any RPG, so if the game works without them I certainly wont miss them.

the 360 version is the same. wtf are you expecting is so different that makes you scared?

I'm not scared, my worry is that the game was developed for the PS3 and then ported to the 360 (In the west at least). Square has promised a dual release and now that it's crunch time I'm worried that they haven't given themselves enough time to properly port the game to the 360 without making compromises to the game. Again I have absolutely no proof to support this. It's just a worry. Ultimately what I'm trying to say is that if the 360 version isn't on the level with the PS3 version then I hope they hold it off to make it right.

Does anyone else find it odd that the 360 version has zero reviews so far? I hope they aren't holding the review copies back intentionally to hide something.

the current issue of Game Informer says 'due to time related factors, Square Enix could not provide an XBox 360 version of FFXIII for review in this issue' and they go on to say they'll evaluate it separately and report any differences.

Yeah I started to wonder about this when I read that article the other day. Why would time related factors have allowed them to review the PS3 version and not the 360? Magazines usually review all versions at once, it makes me think that Square didn't give them the 360 version at press time or they gave it to them much later. Either way it makes me worry. I guess I'm just hoping that the 360 version isn't gimped and Square is trying to hide it. Hopefully I'm reading too much into it.

2213  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP why? on: February 16, 2010, 04:33:04 PM
One of the things that sticks out to me is that I see hand held gaming devices as more of a child's toy than an adult toy.(At least when viewed by the public at large) Much more so than home consoles. It is much more common to be at a group event or out in public and see a child playing on their hand held rather than an adult. I know personally I own two PSPs and two DSs but when it comes to playing them out in public I hesitate. With that said Nintendo has absolutely crushed Sony when it comes to making a kid friendly hand held. It may not be the only reason the DS is so far ahead, but I think it is a big reason.

The most important question I have - where do I download the LoL client? I went to the website, looked all around, signed in, still couldn't find the client DL. Am I missing something? Also, the reviews for LoL stated that much of the paid for content wasn't enabled back in November - at release. Has this been fixed?

Second question - can I DL HoN and try it before purchase? No subs, right? I'll be glad to try both and give it a shot - but frankly, I've heard things about the HoN community being VERY cutthroat and mean to Newbs and I wasn't turned on by that sort of, IMHO, immature behavior. A look at the LoL forums shows that this exists here too - but from my limited experience in Beta, I didn't see too much in the way of immaturity.

Bael

You have to create an account first right here. Some of the content has been added, like the store for the game. But there are still only two maps to play on, which really sucks. They also have a ton of stuff to add in yet which should make the game better.

That list gets a lot smaller once you take out the non exclusives and multiple iterations of the very same sports game! I even gave them the benefit of the doubt when it came to games that I've never even heard of that they probably are Wii exclusive. All that's left is quirky motion control games and first party Nintendo games that really don't do it for me unfortunately.
Now I suppose that still isn't a bad list and you can't very well say that there are no games available for it but I would like to see it compared to similar lists of PS3 and 360 consoles. (only they get to keep their non-exclusives because technically if motion control isn't the main point of the game then they're guaranteed to be superior anyways.

To me the 360 is the biggest offender here. Take out the games that are available on the PC or PS3 and you are literally left with Halo 3 and Gears 2.

Anyway, played the demo and it was alright; it seemed incredibly easy, though, which I guess 9 times out of 10 RPGs are fairly easy in the beginning. But they have an automatic battle option and I used that the whole time. The game looks pretty good... but the FMV sequences are done in a smaller box and not widescreen.

I played this on the DS and it was way, way, way, way easy.  Unless they modified it a lot you will be able to shut your eyes and just hit buttons and win every fight.

So, where does the demo end? I went into the White Dragon's cave and eventually got tired of fighting pretty much the same Sasquatch / five Slimes over and over and over with everyone on auto-pilot. Does it end somewhere in the cave or are there other places to visit?

It ends in the cave, you could run through the entire thing in less than 5 mins.

I talked to the dragon and he told me something about a trial... I walked around, couldn't find anything else in the cave. What am I missing?!

You should take an immediate left after you leave the Dragon's room. So exit Dragon Room, then go to your left and the diamond isn't far from there.
