Nothing from new releases but I did just order Tales of Eternia (PSP) for $30.


Where'd you get it for that price?  I need to order it.


CD-Wow!

Ugh, I am never going to get a ranking.  I can't complete a single Command Attack mode, since every damn time at rank 9 a ten-hit or aerial combo comes up that I have no hope in hell of ever performing.

7605  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / More Kameo Content to Come on: August 05, 2006, 09:58:17 PM
Quote from: "EngineNo9"
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?
7606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / More Kameo Content to Come on: August 05, 2006, 01:02:35 PM
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.
7607  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Live] Dead Rising Demo! on: August 04, 2006, 09:40:03 PM
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!

Quote from: "Misguided"

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.
7609  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone Played Trace Memory? on: August 04, 2006, 06:26:03 PM
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.
7611  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Castlevania: Symphony of the Night to the 360? on: August 04, 2006, 02:59:58 PM
I never got around to playing that one, though I have played every other 2D Castlevania.  Now, I can correct that mistake.  Man, I love me some Castlevania.

What's to explain?  Zombie=bad.  Decapitated zombie=good.

Tomb Raider on 360 (I had stopped playing a while a go due to being distracted, but just picked it up again last night and am loving it), Dead Rising demo, Tekken on PSP, and VP on PSP.  Will probably start playing some Chromehounds again after my recent hiatus.

From EGM:
Dead Rising - 7.5, 7.0, 8.0

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.
7615  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Live] Dead Rising Demo! on: August 04, 2006, 12:20:01 PM
Thanks for the tip.  Downloading right now.
7616  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Loco Roco demo UMDs! on: August 04, 2006, 12:19:35 PM
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 want to be hyped for this game, but I think it will be a rental for me.  Right now it just looks like State of Emergency to me.  That is why it will be a rental for me.

EDIT:  Just watched that video... count me IN!


Exactly...State of Emergency with zombies spinning on excavators.  That's the difference.  Nice to see you've come around.
7618  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mario Hoops 3 on 3 on: August 03, 2006, 08:18:01 PM
I usually like all the Mario sports games, but for some reason remain skeptical despite the graphics and the fact that Square has provided some of the characters from Final Fantasy.  I hope to be proven wrong.

Quote from: "corruptrelic"

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.

Oh, good god, yes!  I have it pre-ordered and can't wait to get my hands on it next week for some zombie-killing fun.
7622  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Street Fighter II online? on: August 02, 2006, 01:34:47 PM
Downloaded the demo and just hated it.  It's a good port and all, but Street Fighter was never my thing and I couldn't even beat the opponent in the demo.  He seemed to counter every move I made and he always kept me at a distance, making it hard to do anything.  I don't remember the AI being like that, though it might just be that way for the demo.  At any rate, any small desire I had to get the game (I am a collector-type and it would add to my old arcade game collection) is gone.
7623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Wii Specs Revealed on: August 02, 2006, 12:49:13 PM
Hopefully this stuff isn't a surprise to anyone as Nintendo has repeatedly said that Wii is not about graphics.  I have my 360 for that.  I want a Wii for playing unique games in a unique way and I think it will deliver on that beautifully.  It's the very reason I got my DS on launch and it hasn't failed me at all.  If you're a strict graphics whore, I think this isn't the system for you.

It's interesting that lots of people say they will get Wii as a secondary system to 360 (Wii60) or PS3.  As has been said before, if everyone gets Wii as their secondary machine, doesn't that make Wii the number one console?  Not sure that that will happen, but I think they are in a good position to do something very positive this gen.

Anyone have a tip for getting diagonals?  Even with the d-pad cover thingy, it is still hard to get them.  Man, the PSP D-pad stinks.  It's worse with the cover off.  I'm not sure how anyone can do diagonals without that cover.
7625  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Street Fighter II online? on: August 01, 2006, 11:03:41 PM
Why would it be released today and not at 12:01 Pacific time like all the other Wednesday Arcade stuff has been since they started that?

Meh, it's just GTA and I have had quite enough of GTA.  I really am tired of the free-form gangster game.  Give me free-form, but make it interesting, like Mercenaries.

I just unlocked Armor King's linkable throws talk about a pain in the ass it's forward (pause) down forward, forward [] + O thats just to get started then all the linkables follow.


Wait....you can unlock more moves?  How do you do that?
7628  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] Tekken:Dark Resurrection? on: August 01, 2006, 07:20:32 PM
My one problem is trying to do the air combos in the practice mode.  I just can't seem to do them.  I unlocked the Cammnd mini-game and I just can't make it through it because they bring up an air combo and I am done. frown

I think my big problem on those is timing and even watching it in action isn't helping me much because there are like 10 things you have to input.
7629  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Getting better at fighting games on: August 01, 2006, 01:27:20 PM
As I've states before I am not a big fan of fighting games.  The major reason is probably that I never seem to get better at them.  So, I picked up Tekken for the PSP and have vowed that I will get better at it.  Right now in Story Mode, I get to about the 6th stage and I start getting my ass handed to me on Normal.  I bumped it down to Easy and was still losing.  I made it through the whole story at that point by just low kicking my way to victory, where I just pressed the same button over and over while crouched and got through.  Not very fun, though.

So, what tips do you guys recommend for getting better at these things?  They always have Practice modes, but I guess I don't know how to use them effectively, because it's one thing to fight an opponent who just stands there waiting for you to hit him and another to fight a moving AI.  So, what's the best way to use Practice Mode?

Help me, oh GT Fighting gurus!

7633  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 31, 2006, 10:23:48 AM
BY the way, you guys have heard that people are complaining about the game locking up their systems and some even having them rendered not playable by Chromehounds, right?  Hasn't happened to me at all (I do normally get lockups in GRAW from time to time, though).  Anyone running into this?  As much as we as a colelctive play this game, I would think someone would have posted they had problems with it, but nobody has (that I can remember), so I find it interesting.

A guy at Gamers With Jobs Press Pass just had his die while playing Chromehounds.

hitting the Start button and selecting 'Status' from the menu will take you to the same stat/inventory screen as the 'Back' button.  you can equip weapons and items there.

Really?  I have a problem where it never lets me log out.  I was thinking about creating a new account and using "The Grue," but when I click on Log Out, it doesn't do anything and this is on multiple computers and with both IE and Firefox.

Was it something you actually equipped from the status screen or just something you ran over? The only equippable item I found in 2 run-thrus was a staff (both times).


It was equippable.  I found about 5 or so equippable items when I played.  One was a wind cloak, one was some kind of mace, one was a clover, one was a knight emblem, and the other was a helmet.  Actually, I may have found even one more, but I can't remember what it was.


OK, well tell me how to equip the stuff...when I go into the status screen I never see it there...and I think I found 3 clovers, the wind cloak and some other junk.


Well, I don't have the demo anymore to tell you exactly, but I think I hit the Back button and there are like 4 empty slots to put stuff in.  One is for weapons, but I think the others are for other stuff.

Alright, I finished Chapter 1.  Game is still pretty cool, but as mentioend before, I wish they would tell me what the hell is going on.  During the sacred phase, I was allowed to look at the status of the dude I sent to Valhalla.  There were some events in there that I could click on, but I couldn't tell what the purpose of them was.  Also, for my requirements for Chapter 2, one of them is Warrior.  I don't see that as a skill I can teach.  Is it a skill or is it just the type of character?

I thought it was mildly enjoyable.  Dunno about a purchase though.

One thing that really grabs my goat is that if equip a 'blue cape' item or whatever, my character looks the exact same.  LOVE the paperdoll aspect of games and this game would be sweet if the charactered reflected visually what items you equip.


I forgot to mention this in my post, but since you've brought it up, it reminded me that I was thinking the same thing when playing.  I got some helmet from a chest and when I put it on, I expected to see myself wearing the helmet.  My expectation was not met.
7640  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on: July 30, 2006, 01:49:04 PM
I picked this up yesterday along with Tekken.  I've played through Chapter 0 so far and the game is interesting.  However, I do have one complaint.  They don't really explain the game mechanics very well.  My biggest example of that is with artifacts.  You beat that vampire and you get two artifacts, both of which you can either keep or give to Odin for a penalty.  THe problem is I don't know anything about that particular game mechanic (valuation?  I forget the term) and so I have nothing to base my decision on.  The only thing I know about it at all is what I have read here which is that you can keep every artifact you get, if you want, as long as you send a proper warrior to Valhalla every chapter.  Okay, but shouldn't the game give me information to make that decision myself?

Also, if would be nice if I could see what the artifact does before I were to decide to accept it or send it to Odin.  Is there a way to do this? (not that it matters, since everyone says to just keep them all anyway).
