I wish I could use the pointer to scroll across the screen instead of having to use the D-pad.


I actually learned how to do this.  Just hold down the square button and you can scroll around the page with the analog stick.

This works fine on U.S. PSPs?  Actually, let me rephrase that.  Not only will it work, but will it be in English if it does work?

From what I've read, yes, it does work.

However, once you upgrade past 1.50 you're losing out on the ability to play emulation and homebrew programs.

Oh, and if you want a web browser, don't upgrade. Somebody has already ripped out a browser out of another program and made it available to download. And unlike the built in browser (in 2.0), you get Flash support.


I made the mistake of upgrading past 1.5 (before they got homebrew stuff going) long ago, so I have nothing to lose.

Definitely not interested.  Please don't make Metal Gear Acid its own genre.

Exactly what I thought.  I mean, Metal Gear Ac!d was fun when I had it and played it . . . even with some pretty big quirks that I didn't like about it . . . but making the "card-based strategy" type of game into a genre isn't very appealing to me personally.

Looks semi-interesting, but that's it for me.


Phooey to you I say.  I love MGA and am on the final boss battle right now.  I could use more games like MGA.

8129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GTA:SA X-Box question on: July 01, 2005, 06:11:16 PM
I have been playing GTA:SA on the XBox after picking iit up recently.  I play on a normal TV (no HD or even S-Video, for that matter).  That being said, I really have a hard time seeing the little radar down in the bottom left or even reading the map which you can pull up.  I have never really ever had a problem like this with a vidoe game before on my TV, but I don't think the games I have played have such tiny fonts and maps.  Even the radio station names can be hard to read when I change channels.  This is all viewed from sitting on the couch.  Does anyone else have any problems viewing text and such with this game on a normal TV?
8130  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DS] Meteos and Kirby - 2 impressions for the price of 1 on: July 01, 2005, 04:18:40 PM
Quote from: "JayG"
Is Kirby anything like Yoshi: Touch and Go? My wifes addicted to Yoshi, so I've been very tempted to get Kirby for her. Is is cute? She loves that.


It is veyr similar to Yoshi, except that it goes above and beyond Yoshi in that there is level progression and bosses and such.  Much more like a platform game than just an arcade game.  Cute doesn't even begin to decribe the game. smile
8131  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Finally a real Mech/Robot RPG! - Gundam True Odyssey on: June 29, 2005, 02:58:21 PM
Wow...this would so rule.  I am sure it is for PS2, though, and I don't have one, which is dumb of me since I love RPGs.  I just kind of got fed up with the load times on the PS2 and dumped it many years ago.  If this isn't coming out in the U.S., someone should steal the idea and do something similar.

Crazy.  Somehow I missed the word "save" in his post.  That is sad considering how short the post was.

8137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / US v.1.50 PSP exploit to be released tomorrow morning? on: June 15, 2005, 05:10:48 PM
Well, Sony is concerned with the legalilty of things.  And running emulated software on your PSP typically isn't thought of as very legal.  To me, it sounds like something they would do.
8138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kirby Canvas Impressions on: June 15, 2005, 04:51:26 PM
My impressions based on playing just the first little level last night.  I enjoyed it immensely.  I got all three medals for the first level and pretty much explored that one level completely after finding the balloon ability up in the upper left corner of one of the screens.  It took me a few minutes to get a hang of the controls and I still feel like a little bit of a spaz when trying to do things quickly, but I am definitely getting the hang of it.

I read about two other modes to play the game in that sound like a lot of fun.  One mode has you try to complete the level as fast as you can.  The other mode has you try to complete it using as little ink as possible.  I haven't tried either mode, but they sound like fun.  With all the unlockables there are in the game, including 4 additional characters (one which you can unlock by beating the game with Kirby and the Amazing Mirror inserted into the GBA slot of the DS), plus the mini-games, I think this is going to be very enjoyable and kepe me busy trying to 100% it for some time to come.
8139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / US v.1.50 PSP exploit to be released tomorrow morning? on: June 15, 2005, 04:47:33 PM
I can't use this because I updated to 1.51.  There is talk that Sony is going to start putting auto updates on games that come out in the future to fight this kind of stuff.  What we really need is something like this that works with 1.51.

Quote from: "GatorFavre"
I am also very tempted by this game.  I think I might wait until Meteos comes out though.  There are also a couple xbox games coming out soon that interest me, so this game is kind of stuck in the middle somewhere.  I wish it had some kind of multiplayer since the one player game seems to be short.  Anyway, may still pick it up, who knows.


From what I have read, the single player is short in that you can bea tthe end boss rather quickly, but like all Kirby games, there is a lot to go back and do afterwards.
8141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kirby Canvas Impressions on: June 14, 2005, 07:35:33 PM
I plan on picking this up on the way home.  Did it come with a pink stylus like the Japanese version did?

8143  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No High def for Revolution on: June 14, 2005, 04:48:06 PM
I don't buy Nintendo stuff for HDTV.  Even if I had HDTV, I would still buy a Revolution.  I buy Nintendo stuff because I think they make very original games that my whole family can enjoy.  I have XBox for the more mature stuff and Nintendo for the fun stuff.  I think the Revolution will be priced cheap enough that HDTV won't be an issue for consumers.  The people that HAVE to have HDTV probably weren't Nintendo's target audience in the first place.

Comparable DS games are $40 so I guess that's just the way it is for now.



Actually, that's incorrect.  DS games go for $30 pretty much everwhere (although I wouldn't put it past Gamestop to charge more).

Example


Depends on the game.  DS games range from $30 to $40 and PSP games range from $40 to $50.
8145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lumines Puzzle Mode on: March 30, 2005, 12:21:31 AM
There is a time limit.  By the way, I LOVE puzzle mode.  That time limit varies by puzzle and appears in the upper right part of the screen while you play.
8146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Does anyone here even have a DS? I have some ?? PSP too! on: March 28, 2005, 04:44:55 AM
It's a shame you can't own them both.  I like my DS and my PSP for differing reasons.  That being said, the PSP sure is sexy.  I have the same number of game sfor both systems (well, not counting GBA games), so I am okay with the lack of games some perceive ont he DS.  You really just need to aks yourself what it is you are looking for in your handheld.  I really like the touch screen on the DS, so if you want that kind of mechanic in your games, go for the DS.  If you want a machine that plays games that look near as good as a PS2 and on a beautiful screen, go for the PSP.
8147  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / If you have Wipeout, you can use the PSP as a web browser!! on: March 27, 2005, 06:21:12 PM
Guys, this isn't quite what you are thinking.  Basically, he has a DNS server set up so that it resolves the IP web site Wipeout goes to to a web page of links that he has.  So, you are only going to be able to do it where you have control over a DNS server (in other words, not at your local Starbucks or anything).  It's cool and all, but not quite what I think a lot of you were hoping for.
8148  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP - When does Nintendo get scared? on: March 25, 2005, 04:47:44 PM
Quote from: "AttAdude"
I agree that less games with more quality would be a good thing.  however there has to be some watershed point there you are just putting the damn things out so slow you lose the admitidly short attention span of those that live in this time.  Our boys at the big N got dangerously close to that mark with the gamecube.


Also a very valid point.  For the DS, they are indeed going pretty slow, but it launched at Christmas with some title and then we went into the normal beginning of the year slump for games which affects all platforms.  From March on, there is at least one game per month that I am interested in for the DS and that is good enough for me.  Others need more games per month and I can understand why that is too slow for them.
8149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP - When does Nintendo get scared? on: March 25, 2005, 04:05:09 PM
I love reading that the Gameboy is targeted for 6 year olds, because I have tons of games for my DS (I count the GBA games in this) that I think are above the level of a six year old.  I have proof of this because my son is six and he isn't going to be fully grasping games like Advance Wars and Final Fantasy Tactics.  He does like his Minish Cap, though. smile  That's my boy.

At any rate,  I have both a PSP and a DS and I love them both for differing reasons.  I don't thin kthe PSP is going to put Nintendo out of business and I think there is plenty of room in the market for both.  I also don't subscribe to the theory that more games, regardless of quality outweighs fewers great games.  I maintain that I would rather get fewer releases, assuming they are great games than 50 games a month I am unwilling to buy because they lack innovation or quality.
8150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Untold Legends a bust? on: March 24, 2005, 06:27:26 PM

OK - I'll try!

-You connect to your PC with one of those USB cables that have a small end on one side. I'm sure there's a real name for it but I don't know it. The Japanese PSP came with that cable.


The name for it is mini-USB.

I would never buy a strat guide for an MMORPG.  Too many things change so close to release.  For instance, when Star Wars Galaxies was released, they had changed the Smuggler requirements a good deal from the information that was in the guide.  For these, I think that online is the best place to get the information you want.

The funny thing about Izzard is that he puts me to sleep.  Something about his voice soothes me and every time I watch it, I can't make it through the show.  It isn't that I don't think he's funny...it is truly that his voice puts me to sleep.  My wife loves him to death and gets angry that I can't make it through the tape.  Maybe I should watch it when I first wake up.

Me and the wife laughed plenty of times.  The shocking ending wasn't so shocking (the Molly Shannon plotline) considering they have done something similiar before.  Still, one of the only shows on TV that I actually look forward to watching every week.
8160  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / National Treasure on: October 26, 2004, 06:49:11 PM
I was telling my wife last night that it looked interesting to me.  It caught my eye in an Indiana Jones kind of way for some reason.  No clue if it will be good or not and I hate the way that movie trailers and commercials like to spoil plot points (we see the Boromir dude pointing a gun and asking for the next clue, so I assume he is going to betray Cage and the girl).

At any rate, it looks like an interesting storyline to me.
