I have a 27 inch HDTV that I use with my 360 and in Kameo you can't tell how much money you have because the number on the screen is so tiny.  Apparently they only test these games on 50" plasma displays.

This is one of the one or two weeks a year that I will begrudgingly pay full price for a game - Burnout for the 360 so I can play with my old college buddies.

wait, do you need to finish that level in order to proceed in SMG?

No...

Spoiler for Hiden:
That level is only available after you have finished the main game storyline.  Also, you only need to get 100 stars in that level, which is hard enough.  The fact that that guy  managed to get all 150 is just ridiculous.

I think it's funny that in the Japanese version of the game it says "Star Get" when you complete a level. Does that pass for proper english over there?

After almost throwing my Wiimote into my television, I have finally obtained all 120 stars in Super Mario Galaxy.  What's more I never consulted a FAQ or strategy guide the entire time.  Now, I don't think that it was as hard to get all 120 stars in Galaxy as it was it Super Mario Sunshine (but at least I was compelled to get them this time - I need to lower my score of Sunshine after playing Galaxy), there were still some really challenging moments there.  While I am sure I would still get my ass whooped by an 11 year old in Halo, it's good to know I at least have some skillz.

I like them, in that they can get you to get more of your money's worth out of a game. But in my short time with the 360 I've already discovered that I am not going to go too far out of my way to get achievements if I am not really into the game.  I really enjoyed Tomb Raider: Legends, so I had a good time going back and replaying some parts to grab some achievements.  With Kameo, though, I am getting the feeling I will want to finish the game but not want to go back and try to get "A" ratings. So I'd say overall, achievements are a good thing for me.

The part of achievements that I think became useless within a week of the 360's release is the gamerscore.  There are people out there with huge gamerscores, and while some of them are gamers who just play a lot, you know that a lot more are people who just rent games to boost their score or people that share a gamertag.

This is definitely a goal of mine.  I have been trying to eBay off games I know I am never going to finish so I can pare down the backlog.  I will have to look at home for a complete list, but this is a lot of it (console only - pc I have a box full I will probably never play)

update 2/12 - beat Crackdown!  I also am leaning towards ditching on the Devil May Cry games as I was having a lot of trouble getting past the first boss in the first title.

update 2/23 - beat CoD2 a little bit ago, basically finished Metroid Prime, getting rid of all DMC and CoD: Finest Hour.

update 4/12 - haven't updated this in a while.  I got rid of Gurumin and finished SOCOM on the PSP. Finished Kameo a little while back. Unfortunately I have also added to the backlog and this list isn't comprehensive yet.

XBOX
I-Ninja
Star Wars: KOTOR
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Psi-Ops

Quote from: Autistic Angel on January 16, 2008, 04:52:32 AM

I haven't seen the newly relaunched X-Play, but I hope they didn't *completely* do away with all their little sketches.  It's true that the majority of them were lame, but it would be worth sitting through another hundred "Grabnar the Wanderer" bits to get another episode like their Halloween Saw parody.

-Autistic Angel

They did a skit in the first show - I don't know how often they will be doing them, though.

My problem with the news is that anyone who reads GT or any other gaming site during the day is likely to know any news they announce well before the show has aired.  For example, their big news item yesterday was that Smash Bros. was delayed. 
8411  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The new X-Play is lame on: January 16, 2008, 03:58:00 AM
I've watched the first 2 shows and they haven't even done a single review yet. With Attack of the Show on right before it, why do they need to do gaming news?  The extended hands-on stuff they have done is pretty cool, but the rest is really just a waste.  G4 ruined the only decent gaming show they had left.
8412  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / In which Teggy professes his love for Sam Fisher on: January 16, 2008, 02:20:24 AM
I love platformers. My favorite genre. Cartoony characters, hopping around, collecting junk.  Love it all. Not embarrassed to say it.  But sometimes I want something a little different. And if I had to pick a favorite "different", it might just be the Splinter Cell series.

I think its the pacing of the games - the freedom to go as your own speed.  If I want to, I can race through the levels, capping guys, dealing with alarms, and making a noisy exit with a large body count behind.  Or (as I am more likely to do) I can walk through completely undetected, climbing across rooftops and through windows, never leaving a trace. Hell, if I want to I can sit in a dark corner for an hour formulating how I will get past the guards up ahead.

I played the original Splinter Cell on the PS2, which was probably a bad idea, but it was the only console I had at the time.  It was a bit sluggish, the graphics weren't so great, and the save system was kind of restrictive.

But a few months ago I picked up Pandora Tomorrow for the XBox, and man did I have a lot of fun with that game.  I played using only checkpoints as saves and worked on playing each section without setting off an alarm.  Every area was a thought puzzle - pop out some lights, watch the way the guards walked, find the secret route over the fence, draw the guards away with some noise, and sneak to your destination. Very cool. Plenty of trial and error, but I didn't mind, because I never felt I was getting killed in a cheap way - the game places the situation in front of you and you have plenty of time to hang back and assess the situation before acting.  I certainly could have finished the missions after tripping an alert, but I didn't want to.

A few days ago I started playing Chaos Theory. Turns out this game is also fantastic, but significantly different from Pandora Tomorrow.  First thing I noticed was that there were no checkpoints - where PT put you along a fairly straight path, Chaos Theory puts you in large areas that you can move about in fairly freely.  The second mission takes place on a ship and you can spend a lot of time exploring storage areas and crew quarters, many of which link together.  This gives you the feeling of being on a mission in a real location - it also allows for the secondary objectives, which generally involve finding x number of something, which is fun if you really want to test your skills. One of the coolest things I think are the left and right hand trigger controls. If you want to just knock someone out, use Sam's left hand, if you want to take them out for good, use his knife (right hand). Now, I don't think that people you knock out ever wake up, but that would make a really interesting moral choice (it would also make the game really hard, though). And of course there are also a ton of great weapons and gadgets, and the NPCs are always having amusing little conversations and doing scripted things.

After this I also have Double Agent for XBox (I got that because I heard it was better than the 360 version) and then eventually Conviction for the 360 and I am really looking forward to those.

So hats off to Sam Fisher - you've given me many hours of gaming goodness.

For what its worth, Riddick is going to be re-released for the 360 with extra content.

In December, when I thought it was going to be a while longer before I bought a 360, I replaced the DVD drive on my original XBox (it was about $50 total). So now I have the 360 on my one hdtv and the PS2, Wii and XBox on an sdtv.  So I am in good shape now, but hopefully I will get another hdtv in the not too distant future and I don't want 50 consoles hanging off the thing.  I better get cracking on my old games.   I have Splinter Cell 3 and 4 and I'll probably try to play those on the 360 because they support 480p widescreen.

There's a number of reasons I haven't rushed out and bought Halo 3, but not properly supporting 720p would be at the very bottom of my list. I'm currently playing Halo 2 co-op with a few buddies of mine and it looks plenty good enough for me even at 480p.
I mean what gives here, is it actually graphically gimped because of this or is this just a bunch of spoiled graphics whores taking a shot at Bungie?

Well, mostly it's probably a bunch of lawyers trying to make some money.  I find it hard to believe any but a minuscule fraction, if any, of the x million people who bought Halo 3 would have canceled their orders had it even been advertised as only 480p widescreen. They bought it because it was Halo 3.

8420  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Roger Clemens y'all on: January 08, 2008, 03:05:02 PM
Before yesterday I was definitely in the "probably did it" camp.  After listening to that phone call I am in the "very confused" camp.  That was very weird to listen to - Clemens was obviously choosing his words very carefully and McNamee was very paranoid about people listening in (for good reason, eh?)  The explanation they gave on ESPN as to why Clemens never responded to the "What do you want me to do?" question is that it could amount to witness tampering. The fact that McNamee offered to go to jail didn't look too good.

I'm curious as to what was in the e-mail that was sent.  It sounded like McNamee wanted Clemens to back off because he has a sick child and couldn't afford to go to jail right now. McNamee never says that he lied in the call (afraid to get that on tape?), but he also never corrects Roger when he says that he didn't do steroids.

The question remains that if McNamee told the truth about several players (Pettitte, etc.), why would he lie in such a detailed way about Clemens?  Is it possible that the investigators threatened to send him to jail unless he gave them something good on Clemens?

I was most surprised by how friendly the two men were towards each other.  Shouldn't Clemens have been really pissed at McNamee if he told all sorts of lies?

I finished 14 full-length games that I hadn't played before from the time I started keeping track in 2007.  Hoping to beat that this year.  I'm going to drop off my whole "on-hiatus" list because it is getting long and I want to try to stop dropping games as much as I have.  If I'm not going finish it, I'll try to get rid of it.  Hopefully some of those games will end up being finished anyway.

About the Teggy 10 point scale: This is not a perfect scale where 5 is average, but I try not to weigh it too heavily toward the high end.  A "10" is a perfect game and its doubtful you'll ever see one - I didn't have any 10s last year.  8s and 9s are games I enjoyed a lot, but there were some features I felt weren't perfect. 6s and 7s, we're talking average.  Below 6 is a failing grade.  Bottom line, 8 is still a really good game in my eyes.  "Completed" means viewed credits.

Quote from: kronovan on January 01, 2008, 06:28:45 PM

The problem you're describing sounds like its  possibly caused by a corrupted  MU. The reason I suspect the MU is that it's likely read or written to 1 last time when you exit to the X360 dashboard. Tomb Raider Legend might have a poorly implemented error routine that results in you being dumped back to the title screen due to an MU read/write error. It will be interesting to see if this still occurs once you get a harddrive.

Hopefully that's it since I probably won't use the MU once I get my hard drive.  I'll see if there's anything out there about corrupt MUs.

Wondering if anyone has had a problem like this with their 360.  I have a new 360, using it with an MU (hard drive is coming this week).  I have been playing Tomb Raider Legend.  About half the time, when I am done playing and try to exit to the dashboard, the game doesn't go to the dashboard, but instead goes back to the title screen and all sound is gone from the game.  I can continue playing the game if I want, but there will be no sound at all.  If I try again to go to the dashboard, I am taken again back to the title screen.  My only way to turn off the machine is to press power.

This happened again recently, and when I turned the machine on the next time all 3 of my saves were corrupted and couldn't be played.  I was on mission 8 of 8 and I had to start the game over again (luckily I liked the game a lot and was willing to do so).

I do have some other games, but I haven't started them and tried to exit to the dashboard from in game.

Has anyone seen anything like this?

This is great - in Boston on Saturday night you can watch either the Patriots, the Patriots, the Patriots or the Patriots.  Boston was never in danger of not seeing the game, because the cities of the teams in the game get rights to simulcast on a local station.  In this case it's ABC.  By allowing additional simulcasts, the NFL is actually screwing ABC, because where they were going to be the only place to watch the game for people without cable or with Comcast, now people can watch on CBS or NBC (or NFL network if you have satellite or RCN.)  The ABC affiliate is pissed and are hoping the NFL is going to honor their exclusivity deal in the Boston area, but it doesn't look like the NFL has any intention of doing so.

I've been on austerity budget since I found out how much we spent on our wedding in May, but after I became the odd man out among my little group of old college friends, my hand was forced.  Take a slow day at the office, some holiday cash, some new fantasy football winnings and a long lunch, and Teggy has joined the current generation.

I actually picked up an Arcade machine because there were no Pros to be found yesterday and I really didn't want the pack-in games anyway.  I picked up a Live kit, since I needed the headset and a subscription renewal, and I got the little web cam, 200 MS points and some free arcade games as a bonus.  Also picked up a play and charge kit, and I already have a second (wired) controller at home I had bought to use with my pc.  I ordered a refurbed 20GB hard drive for $50 shipped.  Finally, I picked up a copy of Tomb Raider: Legend for $20 used and got my first 60 nerd points smile  (see my avatar to the left)

The only trouble I have had so far is with the Live connection.  The first bunch of times I tried to sign on, all the tests passed, but it couldn't sign in to Live.  Then I was able to sign in but would often be dropped out.  I never really had these problems with my original XBox.  Finally I just put the box in the DMZ and we'll see how that goes.

I will admit it in this thread. I have never finished Deus Ex. I stopped in...Hong Kong? Twice. And restarted it a third time and couldn't get back into it. Did they ever update the graphics with a mod or anything? I feel like trying it again.

That's funny, I think that is the farthest I have gotten in the game, too.  I think I have tried to play it 3 times over the last few years.  I installed it again a couple of days ago and realized something: I am an idiot.  Why? Because every time I have started the game up in the past I chose to play on "realistic" difficulty.  For some reason when I read "realistic", I thought "normal" or "recommended".  It never occurred to me there was a reason it came at the bottom of the list, after "hard".  It was because it was the "extra hard" mode! Duh! So I may give it another shot, but on "medium" this time.
