Who is arguing? To me, this has just been a good debate and an important one to make sure everyone is on the same page. Let me ask you this, if you are planning a get together with a lot of people, don't you wanna pre-plan some things in advance? This is the same thing, we're just talking about our preferences for how we would like to see the league played.

Nothing is contaminated.

A debate is an argument.  I assumed this thread was about getting people signed up in a Madden League and not streching it out to 4 pages by debating (arguing) about the rules.  It's too late now, but you guys should have put this in another thread.  No need to argue (debate) my last statement as I won't be posting in here again unless it gets back on track.

Regarding video RSS feeds...  and pardon my ignorance...  why is that a feature that you would want?  What are some good video RSS feeds?

There are a few video podcasts I watch (Diggnation, Frederator, etc.) and I choose to watch them on the PSP.  The RSS feed makes it so I can easily download the podcast to my PSP wirelessly.  I have a job where I travel, so it's good for things like downloading at a hotel as well.  Will be better if they ever support streaming video via RSS so that you don't even have to download it, since video podcasts tend to be big).
7445  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Firmware question on: August 23, 2006, 01:37:20 PM
You're going to get varying answers from people on this.  Some never upgrade (and in fact some have downgraded to 1.5 for homebrew or pirating purposes) and others upgrade.  I always upgrade when the new one comes out because it usually adds at least one feature that I would like to have.  This time, for 2.8, it was for video RSS feeds.  I think the next firmware will probably enable the PS catalog download stuff, so I will definitely want that.

Tough luck on the bricking, though.  I have upgraded a bunch of times and never had the problem.  I even did a downgrader back a long time ago, just to try out some homebrew stuff and even that went fine.  If you are going to upgrade again, I would suggest deleting the download from your memory stick and try downloading it again, just in case it was corrupted.

In Soviet Russia, Wii prices you.

Seriously, though, I would pay up to $199.  That should come with Wii Sports and two Wiimotes, though.  If they are just going to do the system, it should be $174.99 at the most.
so you're saying that an extra controller and three(wii sports is three different sports) games is only worth 24/25 bucks?

I am not sure that Wii Sports is warrants a full retail price and is something they could easily give away.  The difference would mostly be the extra wiimote.

So, am I in the league or not?  Might have to make a new league thread as this one has become a thread arguing about whether people should be allowed to do one thing or another.  I understand it pertains to the league, but really contaminates the league signup purpose of the thread.

I was holding down the left trigger to bring it up, I thought.  Interesting to put something in there that if you do use, serves no real purpose other than to make it harder if you don't use it right.  I thought maybe you would get a bonus if you did use it and if you didn't you just didn't get that bonus.
7452  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Maden 2007 - Vision cone on: August 23, 2006, 12:21:25 AM
I haven't bought a Madden game in quite a few years and had a question about the Vision Cone.  I understand what it represents, but I don't understand how it impacts the game.  If I don't use it, does it make me any less likely to complete a pass?  Or, I suppose better put, if I do use it and focus on a particular receiver before passing, does it increase the likelihood that this pass will be caught?
7453  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Is Gamestop open at 12am tonight..? on: August 22, 2006, 08:11:37 PM
I picked up my copy at midnight as well.  The Gamestop is around the corner and I got into bed at about 11:30 thinking I wasn't going ot do it.  Then my wife laughed as I sat there in the dark for two minutes and then got back up and got ready to go out.  I just knew I was going to sit there awake and think about whether I should go and I must as well just go.

I got lied to there at the Gamestop, though.  I had pre-ordered the non-Hall of Fame 360 versions because I was pretty sure all it added was a bonus DVD.  When I got to the front to get my copy, I asked the guy what the difference between the two were.  He told me that the Hall of Fame edition let you unlock Hall of Fame players.  I couldn't honestly say whether he was right or not because I hadn't paid too much attention to the other differences and I didn't want to buy the lesser one and not get the Hall of Fame players.  Turns out he was wrong and I am out $10.  I will probably watch the DVD because I paid for it and I am not confrontational enough to go back and argue about it, but it does suck because I wouldn't have bought it for just the DVD.

Quote from: Vinda-Lou on August 22, 2006, 02:54:03 PM

EA started out as such a cool company.  Archon, Pinball Construction Set, Arctic Fox, MULE just to name a few.  They really used to focus on the developer and talent.  Then they must have sold their souls.

They killed Origin. 

It really pains me to dislike EA as much as I do.  The games you stated up there and killing Origin are among the main reasons why it hurts so much.  I used to absolutely love EA.  EA, Infocom, Epyx, and Broderbund were my favorites back in the day.  Then...things changed.  I really want to outright boycott them, but they do produce some good games from time to time and so I can't.  I wish I was stronger, but I am not.  It's bad when a company sucks and you still can't help but support them in some way.  If they would change their ways and be more responsive to the community, put out more than one patch per title, and generally stop being the hugest corporate assholes onthis planet, all would be forgiven.  It's not going to happen, though.

The Gamestop I pre-ordered from is opening at midnight.  I have a trade-in, though, and so if a bunch of people show up, it will take forever to get done.  I will probably just pick it up on the way home tomorrow.

I'm curious guys, what is so great that is coming out within the next few weeks?

There are 14 games coming out in September alone that I want.  8 arre on the DS, 2 on the PSP, 2 on the 360, and 2 on the PS2.  That's a crazy amount of games in one month and there is no way I can buy them all.  Actually, one of them (Starfox) comes out right at the end of August, but I will be backpacking in Alaska for 2 weeks, so it will be September for me.  Here is the list I want (keep in mind that this is just September:

Star Fox
Ultimate Card Games
Harvest Moon
Mega Man ZX
Loco Roco
Ultimate Ghost N Goblins
Enchanted Arms
Lego Star Wars II
Pokemon Dungeon
Mario Vs. Donkey Kong II
Dragon Quest Heroes
Valkyrie Profile 2

The rest of the year just adds onto this.  There is no way I can buy them all.
7460  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (8/21) on: August 21, 2006, 02:39:07 PM
Buying Madden for the 360 and downloading Poker while it is still free.  I will look at reviews for the Pac Man PSP racing game, but I don't expect it to be good, so probably not buying it.
7461  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on: August 19, 2006, 03:09:50 PM
Well, I finally got around to finishing this game. I think I put 30+ hours into it and got the A ending.  The game and story were pretty good, though my one complaint is that they don't explain some of the game mechanics very well.  For instance, I never could really figure out what to do to get around Combo Guards and so some fights became very long and drawn out as I couldn't do damage.  Not a big deal, though, and was still able to finish the game.  I don't ever replay RPGs, so I won't be going back to do Hard Mode or the B ending.

It was great to finally play a quality RPG with nicer graphics than the DS/GBA/GB (I've definitely played some fun RPGs on those systems).  Now, onto my imported copy of Tales of Eternia!

Oh, I think I might actually check out VP2 when it comes out on the PS2 based on playing this game on the PSP.  I did enjoy the battle system for the most part and would be up for more of the same.

Playing Asgard Hill in Valkyrie Profile (PSP) to get the A Ending and then starting on both Phoenix Wright(DS) and Tales of Eternia )PSP), which I got in this week.  I will also give Dead Rising some time since I have been away from home all week and haven't been able to put any attention to it.

"If you miss a case, you can still play through the rest of the game. You probably just get a different ending because you didn't do all the cases."
According to the Gamespot review, if you miss one case, you can't do any of the ones after that.  Are they wrong, or am I misinterpreting what you said?

I think you're misinterpreting.  No, you can't do any of the cases after you miss one, but you can still play out the 72 hours, from what I understand.  It's just you get the crap ending and you never find out what happened.

Any game thatt I play that doesn't have multiple saves AND at least close to a save anytime/anywhere system, automatically loses some points from me. That doesn't mean that I will hate a game, just like it less.....

I actually tend not to like save anywhere/anytime games.  SUre, they're nice for convenience when you need to go somewhere and you can save.  However, for me, they are more of a nuisance as I find myself saving after I move 5 feet.  Move 5 more feet. Save.  Yes, I know I can just not save, but the point is that having that crutch there makes me use it.  When I have only certain spots to save, I enjoy the game more because I am not looking at the save screen every minute.
7475  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Rising impressions! on: August 10, 2006, 12:30:51 PM
One other thing I should mention.  If you miss a case, you can still play through the rest of the game.  You probably just get a different ending because you didn't do all the cases.  I actually like this case structure because, like in real life, things don't sit waiting to happen until you show up.  There is a series of events at this mall in the 72 hours you are going to be there and if you miss one, you miss finding out the true story of what happened at the mall.

Isn't this save system essentially the same as Resident Evil, but instead of needing to find a typewriter you have to find a bathroom or go back to the security room?

Yes, it is in a way, but the difference with this game is that you can save in a place that screws you.  Juniordan ran into it.  He saved in a spot where he missed the timing of the next case and therefore had to start over to complete the game.  Now, he could also have kept playing and leveled up and done side missions and then started over stronger than if he just gave up right then and there.  Me personally, I have no issues with the save system.  Yes, you can lose some work, but for me that adds a great deal of tension to the game and makes it better.

What this save system does that people are going to have to get used to is save smartly.  Before you go save, you need to make sure of what time it is and make sure you have enough of it left to progress the main story.  If you don't, you better not go save.

7478  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Rising impressions! on: August 10, 2006, 04:39:56 AM
Just played through the 1st four cases and loved every minute of it.  I never died once, so can't say much about the save system other than I was able to save fine during the times I felt like I should.  I tried one escort missions with some barricaded people but they died on the way because I couldn't get through the closest route to return them safely.  THe scoops are a cool idea, but I am not really working on trying to do them right now, but instead concentrating on the main story so far.

It is interesting playing after playing the demo because I feel a lot more pressure on me now than I did in the demo.  In the demo everything was so leisurely, but with the addition of the missions, scoops, "bosses," and various other things I don't want to spoil, I think the final game is much more interesting than the demo and I think those dismissing it as just mindlessly killing zombies might be in for a surprise.  At the very least they should rent it.

People would pay money for something just because it has achievements to aquire?  Or because of a high score table?

I admit I don't actually know the difference between Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man.  Wasn't it just the bow in the hair?

Pac-Man had one maze and stationary fruit - Ms. has four mazes and the fruit moves around.

Don't forget about the transportation tunnels that would travel you from one side of the stage to the other.

Both games have that, though.

Oh, I also read on GAF that Pac Man does indeed have the ability to start from the last stage you did, so it is like Galaga.
