7561  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] Tales of Eternia on: August 10, 2006, 04:46:55 AM
Just got my email saying it shipped.  smile  Now, I need to finish up VP in the next week (while somehow feeding my addiction that I can tell will be Dead Rising), so I can play it when it gets here in a week.
7562  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.

Well, crap.  How long ago did you order it?


Ordered it Monday morning, probably within an hour of my post about here.


Well, screw.  That means I ordered it not long after you did.  Guess you got the last copy?

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.

Seen that about 2 years ago.


Um, howwwwww?


Exactly.  The DS in the move was a Lite, wasn't it (I stopped playing the video within a minute due to it being stupid)?  That just came out in March in Japan.  PSP hasn't bene out 2 years and while the DS Phat is close to 2 years, it isn't there yet.

One of my favorites of all time is up this morning and I got to play a game.  Controls are fine and game is smooth.  Don't expect any extras, though, as this one is just like Galaga in that there are no extra features other than Leaderboards and Achievments.  I forgot to check whether you can start from the last board you lost all your lives on like in Galaga since I only played one game.  Maybe someone else can confirm.

See, in the first Untold Legends, you had a long load when you went back to the main town to sell items.  It got to where I just left stuff on the ground rather than have to wait for the other level to load.  The co-op does sound nice and would have made the game more bearable.

Untold Legends 2 Warrior's Code: Best RPG (IMO) for the PSP out there. It has a good singleplayer game and a fully featured online multiplayer (coop through the campaign and team battles like capture the flag) for up to 4 players. I've only been playing this for 3 days now and while it still hasn't beat my SOCOM addiction, it'd be my next favorite.
Usually around 30 people playing online at any given time.


I think the title of Best RPG would go to Valkyrie Profile before it would go to Untold Legends 2, though I haven't played the latter.  I am basing it on reviews I've read and also the fact that I played the first one and didn't even finish it because I was bored to tears.  Did they do anything to fix that in the second one?
7572  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] Tales of Eternia on: August 08, 2006, 04:52:41 PM
Well, the place I ordered it from in England just sent me an email saying they are having trouble getting it from their suppliers, so I will be delayed.  Didn't stop them from chargin my card, though, which I am not so happy about.  Kevin Grey, did the same thing happen to you (I got the site from you)?

I finished this up this weekend and enjoyed the heck out of it.  I thought the puzzles were great and I really felt like I was exploring these sites.  I enjoyed the story as well and loved how intense the ending was.  I am anxious for the sequel I imagine is coming.

Maybe after some here get it, report back that there is much more to it than mindlessly killing hordes of easy easy EASY-to-kill slow-as-molasses dead people then maybe I will pick it up.  


The demo takes place on one of the first cases, so I imagine the difficulty is fairly low at that point in the game.  I was never in danger of dying, myself, but I still had fun and I'm not really into zombies, either.  We'll let you guys know how the later stuff turns out.

It will be interesting if any of you "I won't budge above $199" people change your tunes once it gets released and some feedback about it comes out.  We should mark this thread and revisit.

We all know the Forum Effect can be strong.
7578  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Would you Buy the Wii for $229? on: August 08, 2006, 03:42:19 AM
I'm in, but I think we all knew that already.  I figured the price would be $250 at the high end and I was willing to pay it.  I will be pre-ordering (I don't think there will be a shortage, but doing it just in case) and expect to pick up Metroid and Zelda at the very least on launch day.  Need to see what else comes at launch to decide what else to buy.

I'm lazy...what were the changes?  The $229 and 11/2 still seem to be there.

Damnit.  I just ordered the European version because I could have sworn I had never heard anything about it coming to the U.S.  It sure does say Oct. 2nd on Gamespot's site.  Ah, well.  I will have it soon and it was only 31.99 w/ free shipping.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I will be trading in the game on Wednesday in order to get Dead Rising so yo ucan pull me out of the squad.  I love the game, but I find it, like all MMOs, tend to make me play that game and that game only, ignoring all other great games in the process.  Good for the wallet, but bad for the love of my hobby.  This is why I haven't been playing lately as I've been forcing myself to stay away.  Anyway, thanks to everyone in GT Goonsquad for making the game so fun to play.  I feel I got my money's worth out of it the limited time I did play.  It's just that when I play MMOs I feel like I have to play it a ton in order to keep up with everyone and it gets me into a trap where I start ignoring things that truly matter.  Games that have pause buttons don't do that to me. smile

I just started playing this game when I got my 360 a couple weeks ago and I'm having a lot of fun with it.  Too bad this is mostly all co-op stuff.  Not that I don't like co-op, but when you don't have anyone to play with it's pretty useless.


You don't have Live?

Saw this on Major Nelson's site this morning.  Sounds really great and makes me wish I hadn't traded it in already:

Quote
Think you’ve mastered Kameo™:Elements of Power™? Think again! With expanded co-op action and super challenging gameplay, the upcoming Kameo Power Pack is sure to put your abilities to the test. This downloadable content contains three great new co-op modes of play: Expert Mode, Rune Battle Mode, and Time Attack Mode.

    * Expert Mode: Expert Mode features six re-mastered tougher-than-ever levels, for both solo and cooperative play. Be prepared to face battles that will make even the most hardcore Kameo veterans balk. Suited up in their exclusive new Armor Skins, all ten of your Elemental Warriors will be on hand to help you in the enhanced combat...and you’re gonna need ‘em!

    * Time Attack Mode: In Time Attack Mode, team up with a friend over split-screen, System Link, or Xbox Live®, and work together to try and beat the clock—and the Trolls—against seemingly impossible odds.

    * Rune Battle Mode: Rune Battle Mode turns traditional Kameo co-op on its head, with new VS gameplay that pits you against your opponent—as well as Trolls—in a fight to grab the most runes. Use one of the unique new weapons to thwart your adversary in this no-holds-barred arcade scramble!

The Kameo Power Pack also introduces 15 new achievements and worldwide leaderboards. Check the Kameo community site frequently for the latest news and to see how you can get the Kameo Power Pack for yourself.

Okay, that was a blast.  I definitely did the right thing in pre-ordering it and I was sad when the demo ended.  After reading some of the things you guys did that I didn't do, it shows me it will have some hidden little gems in it and this is just one area of the mall we got to explore.  Hooray for next week!

Grue et al., the level on this UMD demo is *NOT* the same as the Japanese demo. The Japanese demo had the bit near the end of the level where you needed 15 or so little goo balls to sing loudly enough to wake up the moon...this level is entirely different.


Ooooh, sweet.  Well, I guess I better go lay my 5 bucks down, then.

I never got around to buying it.  I heard it is fun while it lasts, but the problem is that it doesn't last.  The game is supposedly very short and I think this is where it gets the mediocre reviews.  From what I've heard, it uses the unique features of the DS fairly well.  If I saw it for like 10 bucks, I would probably pick it up.

There were also some hints of other things, like cooking.  If you grab a frying pan, you can place it on the stove, which gets you a 50 point cooking bonus.  I also found a microwave and some cooking oil.  I haven't figured out if the oil is actually used for cooking, or if it's good for splashing on zombies (which I did do) and then lighting it (but I couldn't find a match).


The oil can be used for cooking.  You can mix things together to make food which gives you bonuses like increased running speed and stuff like that.  There is one mixture which I have read about that increases the power of your spit.  So, you can spit at zombies with it and it does damage.

May be going back to rental and demo... I also dont like how you cant unlock the untimed mode without beating the game multiple times.  It is a cheap way of adding replay value to a game.


Timed may take it directly off my list.


Oh, I thought everyone realized you only had 72 hours to play at a time.  However, from what I hear, there are so many things going on at the mall, that when you play again, there are plenty of missions to do that you will have missed, so the game won't be the same when you play it again.

Loco Roco is one of my most anticipated games this year.  I played the Japanese demo and then downloaded the English one when it came out even though it was the same.  It is the only demo I have ever played that I actually go back and play it again from time to time.  I love the art style in the game and love how the little individual roco's all have their little part to sing of the song that plays in the level.  Very unique looking game that you wonder how Nintendo didn't come up with it.

I dont buy the argument "its all about gameplay" though because if that were true, we'd still be playing away on our Atari 2600's because after all, it's all about the games and not the graphics!


That's because the gameplay of most Atari games is crap by today's standards.  Notice I said "most" because there are still some games that stand the test of time and I will play them despite the fact that the graphics are ancient.  Pitfall is a perfect example.
