7641  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What the...Ninety-Nine Nights demo up in the marketplace! on: July 29, 2006, 12:00:58 AM
I've never really played one of these types of games, but with the demo there I figured I would give it a try.  Was fun while it lasted, though I am not sure whether I would want what seems to be simple gameplay to last through a $60 game.  I did like the fact that you can find weapons, armor, and items and you were limited in slots to wear them so that you had to make choices.  Not sure if the items are random that you get or not (in the treasure chests), but it would be cool if they were and you could put together sets and stuff.

I guess I will read some reviews.  If this had two player I think I would be all over it because I feel my son could play along with me without much trouble, but it looks to be 1 player only.  I am sure the reviews won't be very good since the Dynasty Warriors ones never are, so unless I read something in those reviews that stands out, I will probably skip this one, at least until it hits the bargain bin.

Oh, by the way, if you click the right analog stick you can zoom the camera out a little bit.

ALso forgot to mention the AI for your army.  Just as some others said, they appear to just stand around and not do much.  I left them behind and they all died, but since I kicked ass it didn't much matter.  Not sure if they play more into it on other stages or not, but I felt they were pretty useless and didn't much help me complete the stage.
7642  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WEEEEEEKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEND PLAYLIST! 28/Jul/06 on: July 28, 2006, 09:18:14 PM
Probably picking up at least one PSP game this weekend (either VP or Tekken or both).  Other than that, probably Chromehounds and the demo for NNN.

My THEORY is that due to the releases of the 360 being so... stagnant, owners of a 360 will at least try the newest release out there.  And hey, if they find it decent, they'll love it because it's the newest release.  But different strokes for different folks I suppose.


My theory is that the game rocks in multiplayer with a good squad (see: GT Goonsquad) and that's why people like it so much.

Devil, when your gal asks you if you want sex, to you scream IN by chance?


I've been married for 7 years. I don't get asked!

I would say "IN", though!

 biggrin


Man, I feel sorry for you.  I have been married for 6 and I get asked almost daily... tends to limit my gaming time tho.


And yet I see you playing Chromehounds nightly.  You must be quick. smile

Yes, he had rented it.  Also, our squad went from Professional++ to just Professional when he left, so now we can all hate him for selfish reasons.  :twisted:
7647  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion coming to the PSP? on: July 28, 2006, 12:20:19 PM
As much as I like Elder Scrolls, if it is just a port of Oblivion for the 360, I wouldn't pick it up.  If it was some kind of alternate adventure, that would be great.  No dual analogs wwould make playing the first person aspect of this pretty tedious, though.  Yes, I know games use the face buttons, but I always find it uncomfortable, and really the only game I didn't mind it was Syphon Filter, but that is because there was lockon.  I am not sure there are enough buttons on the PSP to have lockon and still be able to do everything you can ont he 360 with the buttons (hotkeys, map, etc.)
7648  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about RSS feeds and the PSP on: July 28, 2006, 12:17:30 PM
Did you subscribe to podcast RSS feeds or the main feeds on their blogs?  You can't RSS the blog postings, but the podcasts are just fine.  I just tried adding Major Nelson's and it worked just fine for me.  I chose the RSS for Blogcasts, MP3 option on his site and that one worked.

7651  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 27, 2006, 06:51:23 PM
One thing that would make it easier for us to run multiple hounds is if the little template thing you can trade with others for a particular mech build would list the parts you need.  If just one part in the build is from another faction and you don't have that part, it tells you that yo ucan't build it, but since it doesn't tell you which parts you are lacking you can't find that part and maybe get it in the lottery.  I really would like to have some of the expert players' particular mech builds for a role, but I am pretty sure everyone uses mixed parts.

Well based on this thread about fanboy fights itself turing into one over the DS vs PSP I'd say its still alive and kicking...


I'm not a fanboy of either system, though.  I like them both.  I do have an opinion about one being better than the other, though, but I don't consider either system to be "my" system.  And that's what separates me from the fanboys.  I don't think anyone in this thread has honestly acted like a fanboy, though...not even Devil.
7653  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 27, 2006, 06:00:47 PM
Good points, Papa Smurf.  The other thing is that we will probably need to be pickier about what classes we take out on missions (this means each player needs to make a mech for each role and learn to use them) if we want to succeed as the AI gets harder.  Also, in bringing those particular roles, we need to make sure they use them for what they are for.  I'm probably the most guilty as far as sticking to one mech.  I have only ever used my soldier mech and I should really branch out to help out when we need it.
7654  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Firmware 2.8 out on: July 27, 2006, 05:56:51 PM
Yeah, it would be nice to get those loading times down with the ability to load games on a stick.  I don't care about emulation since I don't own any of the ROMs, and therefore I would be illegally playing those games.  I do wish Sony would support legitimate homebrew development, though.  Unfortunately, there probably isn't a very good way to do that and keep the emulators and prirated versions of current games off the device.

I guess one way would be for Sony to sell new games via digital distribution with whatever protection they are going to put on the PS1 emulated games.  This way you can download a game, throw it on a stick, and away you go.  I have a 2G stick, so I shouldn't have any problems (but even if the games were bigger, there are still 4G and 8G sticks coming).

I never watch movies on my PSP, but video blogs are of interest to me, so having the RSS feeds for video are great.

I LOVE IT!!

I agree, Soulchilde. I own both systems and while each has their strengths, PSP is currently winning and with the release schedule I see for the rest of the year, the PSP will have way more quality titles than the DS. I do agree that DS is finally getting some more quality games, but the PSP just smacks its ass with what they have coming down the pipe.

This is why you don't see as many threads about this suff. It's all a matter of personal taste.

I think it's funny though!  biggrin


Tell you what, Devil.  Let's look at sales data at the end of the year and see which one comes out on top.  We all know you don't like the DS and we all know I like both systems, so your opinion seems a little biased.  However, the sales data will not be biased either way, so we can use that as our little friend.  Care to make any friendly wagers? smile
7656  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Firmware 2.8 out on: July 27, 2006, 02:29:02 PM
I downloaded it this morning and the major feature it adds is the ability to download videos from RSS feeds.  I tested it out this morning, downloading the latest Digg video and it worked great.  It also supposedly adds the ability to name videos whatever you want and drop them in a certain video folder for playing.  Supposedly, this doesn;t work for the AVC MP4s, though, which are Sony's goofy little version of them.  Not a big deal, though, since they still work the way you used to have to format them.

And you can buy better weapons from time to time at the usual shop. As the war resets (and/or more money is donated), new items pop up to buy.



Ah, well maybe if the wars last more than half a day, I will actually see some of these new parts. smile  Hopefully the tweak they did will allow these things to drag out a month or so.

Last night when I played, I was getting my ass handed to me.  It used to be I could run in and stand toe to toe with a bunch of mech.s  Now, though, I am getting my weapons damaged to where they become useless and then getting completely destroyed.  Not sure if it is the fact that we are taking higher level missions as people rank or if they changed something in the patch they did.  The problem I have, though, is if it is because we are fighting higher ranked mechs, I am still using the parts I had from the beginning.  When are we going to be able to buy better parts (other than lottery)?  I'm not sure how I can keep up with these guys as we continue to rank up if I can't buy better guns that do more damage and better armor.

I had put this down for a bit, but got to it again recently.  I made it my mission to complete Hard mode and unlock the Insande mode and get the female cheerleaders.  Well, mission accomplished!  I tried the first song on Insane mode, though, and I just got my ass handed to me.  The dots are smaller, they are more spread out, and they don't give you as much of an indication as to where things are going to be ahead of time.  Definitely a challenge and I think it will basically require me to memorize the positions of the dots to get through the songs.

Yeah, when I saw it was 39.99, I immediately thought that the downloadable car packs were going to be very high priced.  We'll see if I'm wrong, but I just can't shake the feeling.  Of course, optional car packs are optional, so you still get a $40 game which will hopefully have a large amount of cars in it.

I, too, have done portable gaming since the original Gameboy.  Actually, I supposed those old things like Merlin and the Mattel handheld football game count as well, so back that far, I suppose.  So, nothing has really changed because I've been doing it as a kid.  I am amazed, though, how much time I put into my DS and PSP while at home.  I mean, I have all the other console systems and yet I have historically played my portables more.  Lately, though, the 360 has become king of my gaming time now that I have some good people to play multi over Live with.

I really theink they've done some innovative things in video gaming with their whole open-ended thing, but I think I'd like them to do something else with it (like Mercenaries did).  Something sci-fi might be nice smile.
