Well, I enjoyed the movie to an extent.  He certainly did butcher some of the Xmen cannon, but seriously you would have to be a fan of the Xmen comics to see where he took some liberties.

Also, having Arclight running around with the Morlocks was a bit much for me.  Also, Callisto only power was being able to locate mutants.  Superspeed was never a power she had



Anyway, my feeling on

Spoiler for Hiden:
Cyclops being dead is a toss up.  They never really showed you what happened to him.  It only implied that he died.  As my sister said .  He could be  in the lake just like Jean was.  Also, if you didn't see that whole Proffesor X taking over the Comatose man thing coming you should be shoot.



Also, I hear the Hugh Jackman has signed on to do a stand alone Wolverine movie

Do like I do.  Say I really want to kiss you, BUT I don't want to make an ass of myself.  If she giggles...then go in for the kill.  If she likes honesty then she won't have a problem with you asking.  

Or if that doesn't work you can always

NINTENDO NEWS: NINTENDO ANNOUNCES WII INFORMATION, WORLDWIDE SHIPMENTS


May 25, 2006

Following its overwhelming debut at E3 2006, Nintendo today announced the current fiscal year unit shipment forecast for its new home game system, Wii™. Nintendo also confirmed that the price of the Wii system, which incorporates unique freehand control, will not exceed $250 in America, or ¥25,000 in Japan. The company plans to ship 6 million systems to retailers around the world between its launch in the fourth quarter of 2006 and the end of its fiscal year on March 31, 2007.

The projections are part of a full-year financial forecast that sees growth of 18 percent in sales globally, based on anticipated continuing strong demand for the Nintendo DS™ portable game system, as well as a successful launch for Wii.

The company also said it expects to sell 17 million Wii games in the period. Exact launch dates, identification of the launch library of titles and details on the unique Virtual Console aspect of Wii will be announced soon.

4892  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 8... sorta on: May 24, 2006, 06:40:44 PM
I will pick up the Dark Horse comics and I hope he puts a better spin on the Buffy series


S6 and S7 aren't my favorite Buffy season.  With Season 4 being my all time favorite.  Anyway, I found the series finale to be rather poor

Spoiler for Hiden:
I just didn't like the way JW cheapened the Slayer powers.  While he has multiple Slayers I just thought the whole "Potentials" things was stupid.  


Also, I hated what they did with Spike

Oh and Drusilla has to be the BEST Buffyverse villian

Underscoring the ongoing convergence between entertainment and technology, The Race to E3 will make a groundbreaking debut across multiple platforms including Xbox Live. In connection with the show, Xbox 360 owners will be able to download the first-ever high-definition television content on Xbox Live Marketplace. Premiering the week of May 8, these 3-minute episodes take viewers into the lives of the team at Epic Games, the world famous game developer behind “Gears of War.” Then on Friday, May 19 at 10 PM Eastern/Pacific, the drama culminates in the primetime special Gears of War: The Race to E3, on MTV2, with additional exclusive content available on MTV2.com, MTV Overdrive and Xbox Live.


“We’re tapping our Project Greenlight experience and translating it to videogames, a creative field that rivals the movie business—and in the gaming world, it doesn’t get any bigger than ‘Gears of War’,” stated Larry Tanz, CEO LivePlanet. “We are excited to partner with Xbox, a brand known for pushing the boundaries of entertainment, and MTV2 to offer this unique program across multiple platforms.”



As much as I want Gears of War after the way MTV screwed up the 360 preview do I really want to watch this?

4897  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Exclusives - Who wins? on: May 10, 2006, 02:57:14 PM
My PS2 sat mostly unused under my tv set. Last game the grabbed me for it was either Suidoken IV or GTA 3.   Matter of fact it was GTA 3, but my Xbox went just as unused.  So I guess it really come down to preference.  

I'm really in love with my PSP and see no reason to get a DS, but using your analogy because the DS has the more recognizable game its the clear winner.  I just don't see it that way.  I am having loads of fun playing Syphon Filter, Madden (even in its buggy state) and HotShots Golf.  It want you like that makes  difference
4898  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Claim: 360 is just about FPS. Can't be more wrong. on: May 10, 2006, 02:38:09 PM
You know Scott I understand what you are saying, but it seems to me that most of those games from different genres come from the 3rd party support.  While I understand that you want MS to increase thier marketshare, but unless Dev Houses start producing the  God of War, Guitar Hero and the like for the 360 then what can MS do.   I guess they could go out and buy the Dev Houses like they did with Bungie, but honestly this will only work so much.

Honestly, I think MS is going to come out on top this generation in the NA and EU market.  While getting Japan would be nice Sony is too well entrenched into that market.  


Btw, anyone notice that the 599.00 version of the PS3 has no determined price in Japan.  It's being left open to the sellers to set the price.  Does that seem wacky to anyone else?

I like some of the gameplay, but at times I felt like I was playing Halo, but in 3rd person.

I'd love the 360 to be dominant. Its my favorite console ever at the moment, and I'd rather see the American company do well, but I think predicting Sony's doom because of one bad presentation is a bit early



I don't think Sony is doomed.  No matter what us Americans and Canadians think Sony is king in Japan and will be number #1 over there.


I just feel they have priced themselves into number 2 and maybe 3.


Again time will tell.

Oh..I lovedwhat they showed on the PSP. They showed one part where you could put original PS1 games on the memory card and play them on the PSP. Id love to see the old RPGS put on there. That would make me get a PSP for X-Mas smile



Yeah, I'm excited about that as well.  Making it free would be awesome, but I would be willing to pay 5 bucks depending on the title

I think we have to wait to see what Microsoft will present tomorrow, and Nintendo today.  Microsoft could come out with a lame presentation also.  In the end though, Sony still has:

- Ratchet and Clank
- Sly Cooper
- Final Fantasy
- Metal Gear Solid
- MLB
- Gran Turismo
- most likely the next GTA game exclusive for a while
- and a few others I'm sure I'm missing.

Microsoft has:
- Halo

Unless Microsoft has some big surprises, Sony easily wins the exclusives category, which may mean a lot with both consoles relatively the same power



Lets not forget Xbox Live and Xbox Arcade.   While Sony is releasing a online service the proof is in the pudding.  Heck, people love Xbox Arcade and some consider the price of the 360 worht it just for that

They are insane. Alot of you are saying you are out, but I'm sure we will all be talking PS3 games come December.  We are the hardcore just hanging around here. At 600$ they are pretty confident that they have a few killer app's...

FACE IT.

SWALLOW IT.

TASTE IT.

You are going to buy it. This is not Hunting Enthusiast Forums...

But you dont have to like it.

What they have done is price themselves out of the casual gamer.

This Christmas is for the 360 and Wii, mothers wont be able to buy a PS3  and they will get a 360 for cheaper or a Wii.. 2 million worldwide launch which is no where near enough for a system that has close to  100 million pervious generation base.

And Im seeing a whole lot of 360 games coming out for the PS3.. they better have some HOT exclusives for that launch..


I don't care how hardcore of a gamer I am, pure economics put me out on the PS3 until a significant price drop, and by significant I mean when the premium system hits no more than $399.



I'm with Arkon here.  I am just as hard-core as anyone on this board, but damn if I'm spending 600 bucks on a gaming console.  I just can't justify it.   Maybe Sony will run a everytime10minute like contest for the NA market.  Thats the only way I willhave one at launch
