2521  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / more sony BS? on: June 16, 2006, 05:33:29 PM
Quote from: "ATB"
It's missing a lot of ports, but what kind of ports are those?


2 HDMI outputs - I guess so you could send signal to two TVs?
2 ethernet ports - I believe they claimed the PS3 could be a router.  
and
2 USB ports - I really don't know the big deal since you could still use a USB hub I would think.
2522  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS2 on computer monitor? on: June 16, 2006, 02:25:06 PM
How would one go about this?  I am tired of fighting my wife for the TV so it would be a great thing to be able to play my PS2 on the computer.   I have just picked up Suikoden V so I have 60 hours of time I need.  I can't imagine getting her away from the TV that long.

So what do I need?

Cagcast question: If you could instantly have in your hands the sequel to one game you've played over any platform at any time and it would be guaranteed a top notch 10 rated game, what would you wish to have?


Hummm..


Final Fantasty 7 I think.  I loved the game but 8,9,10,etc. all use different characters, battle systems, worlds, etc.    I would love a true sequel.

Quote from: "Tebunker"
The thing is that this game comes close to crossing the lines, but it doesn't. And it doesn't come close to the inappropriateness of a baby raping sim.

I completely agree that not all things should be published, and I am all for standards, but I am completely against knee jerk reactions by companies, and this seemed like an over-sensitive move on Sony's part.

Next time I won't use "guy speak" when I reference things like this, so as not to confuse the matter.


I honestly don't know if the game crosses a line, but after seeing the trailer I know it crosses my personal line.  

Of course this is what the rating system should deal with.  The game can be published but it should probably be AO.

Quote from: "Tebunker"

Hell I don't even think I'll play the game but I don't want to see it not published because a publisher doesn't have the balls.


I am not sure how I feel about this.  Should any and every game be published no matter how violent/perverted/etc. the subject?  Should a baby raping sim be published just to show that american's "have the balls" to do it?

I think for me the answer is no.  We should have some things that don't get into video games/movies/etc.  I don't think that means we don't have balls but that we have standards.
2526  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Windows Vista - 40 page preview on: June 02, 2006, 03:48:53 PM
After reading that whole article it seems like Vista is pointless for gamers - except for DirectX 10.  

The changes

Windows interface changes...which oddly are just things MACs have been able to do for a long time.

IP6 - great and nice but until all the routers, switches, etc. in the world support IP6 this will be unused.  

New games.  Big whoop.  (although I am addicted to Freecell)

More interface improvments concerning actually telling you what the heck is going on with windows.  Tha is nice but that isn't really a big enough change to buy an OS.

Generally I think Vista is a lot of pretty stuff which means nothing really.
2527  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KOTOR 3 News? on: May 16, 2006, 12:45:14 PM
I loved both games to varing degrees and I do hope they put out another one.  It is a very good setting I think since Lucas hasn't pissed all over it (I am sure in KoToR 3 he will demand that C3P0 makes an appearance)

However I am still annoyed at the huge gaps in KOTOR2.  I wanted to know what happened to the remote, the wookie, etc.  

For me it was like reading a mystery and then having the end botched.  No matter how good the writing up to that point, it still spoils the experience.

I don't care how hardcore of a gamer I am, pure economics put me out on the PS3 until a significant price drop, and by significant I mean when the premium system hits no more than $399.



I'm with Arkon here.  I am just as hard-core as anyone on this board, but damn if I'm spending 600 bucks on a gaming console.  I just can't justify it.   Maybe Sony will run a everytime10minute like contest for the NA market.  Thats the only way I willhave one at launch



I am in this boat as well.  I will be waiting.

My tank is 15 gallons.  Prices have gone up .18 cents.  That means an increase of $2.70 per fill up.  That is nothing really - a couple less Diet Cokes (at $1.40 for the 20oz. ones), a movie rental, a bag of chips.

Modojo has received word that video game developer Bethesda will be releasing a version of its recent Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion RPG title on Sony's next generation console, the PlayStation 3. Not necessarily a surprising move, however the porting doesn't appear to stop there as a PSP version is apparently also in development.

All it says is 2007. If it is end of 2007 that would be a full 2 years after release. With newer technology, 2 years is like a lifetime in refining. They are just continuing to improve the system.. They had to release it at some point.


True but now (as we have seen from comments already) users know that if they wait they will get a better machine.  

Sure eveyone does this to some degree but why hurt sales now for something which is at best 8 months away?  Why hurt your Christmass sales?

2540  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Thoughts on Flight 93 movie. [melancholy] on: April 17, 2006, 12:44:58 PM
Quote from: "Blackadar"
This movie is simply too much, too soon.  It's not that the story shouldn't be told.  But this is still a gaping wound in the American collective conscious.  

Platoon was done almost 15 years after the Vietnam War.  Munich was just released 30 years after the Israeli Olympic Team suffered their horrid fate.  JFK was made over 20 years after the assassination in Dallas.  Time heals.  This movie was made much, much too soon.



More and more things happen quickly in our society.  

We have TV shows about the Iraq war - which is still going on.  We have made for TV movies months after real life events (where husbands kill wives, or wives kill husbands, etc., etc.)


While I find the movie offensive, I think that 5 years is actually a pretty long time by today's standards.

I can't believe people are actually thinking this is real in any way. Please, Walmart is big and powerful but if this was true then what they control everything thats made in America? If they don't or won't sell it then nothing but what they want should get made. Spare me the X-files type conspiracy crap.



What is "X-files" about thinking that the largest retailer in the US may have influence over the products they sell?  

I remember back.....10-15 years ago when Posion put out an album with a woman with a really long tounge.  Wal-mart put on a bit of pressure and there was a censored cover just for Wal-mart stores.  

So years ago Wal-mart could force record labels to change.  I see no reason to believe that now, when Wal-mart is even bigger, that their influence is less.

i thought that the gamecube was a great machine,so i guess anything better than that...would be...........better :?

but how will it be next gen?,are they still gonna call it next gen?

wont kids just rather buy an xbox1?

still,if there will be no other console that you see mario and zelda and metroid and starfox,i will definetly still be getting one



Exactly.  No kids won't just buy an xbox 1 because they want to play one of the games you mentioned.

Not every gamer is obsessed with processing power/graphics.  Looking at the excitement over Space Rangers 2 for the PC shows that gamers are interested (and thristy for) good games even if they don't have the cutting edge grapics, etc.
2548  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Far Cry Intincts Predator review up at IGN on: March 30, 2006, 09:23:15 PM
http://And it isn't great

Quote
While the gameplay is practically identical to the Xbox, what about the graphics? Honestly, you're not going to be blown away by Far Cry Instincts Predator's visuals. The water looks great and animates well, the draw distance has been pushed back significantly and the lighting looks better, which makes for some strikingly pretty scenes. That's only on certain occasions, however. Most of the time, you're going to be staring at high-resolution Xbox textures, high-resolution Xbox characters, vehicle and weapon models, and high resolution Xbox fire effects. Enemies animate like they do in the Xbox version, the physics work exactly the same and the explosions look practically identical, though displayed at a higher resolution. Though there are certainly visual improvements over FCIE, FCIP doesn't look anywhere near as good as other games on the Xbox 360 like Call of Duty 2 or Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. Still, the framerate remains solid, which in a first-person shooter is one of the most important factors.


Feels like something I said earlier this week about this round of 360 releases - prettier rehashes.

UMD on the other hand I think we can say is going to die.  

There is still no way other than the PSP to play UMD movies so if you are not into gaming you probably would never buy one.  They are expensive and, they often don't have as many extras.   I see that as pretty much the recipe for doom.

Retail reports are suggesting that Wal-Mart may be about to quit the UMD movie market, following a downward trend in sales. Hollywood studios are abandoning the format.



This would be a huge blow to Sony I would think.  Wal-Mart is the biggest retailer in the US and I believe they are the biggest movie seller as well.  To lose them would really doom UMD I would think.

I think what I really feel is that a FPS, a wrestling game, and a hack n slash are just pretty rehashes of well established genres.  There really isn't anything new there.  

That isn't bad but I just don't see this as a "big 360 release day".  It feels to me like what consoles shoudl be having every week or month.

Far Cry, Rumble Roses XX and Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires are all out today! Top Spin 2 will be out tomorrow.


Far Cry - prettier rehash of Xbox game.  I am sure it will have new levels, and some other tweaks but it is basically the same game redone.

Rumble Roses XX - I think the IGN review said it well "Rumble Roses XX isn't trying to be a great wrestling game; it's trying to give 13-year-old gamers a reason to lock their bedroom doors at night, and in that it succeeds. The wrestling is just a vehicle to get us there. But the sexy novelty of the Roses wears off quickly."

Dynasty Warriors 5 - How many times will gamers go back to the same game rehashed?  Again, like Far Cry I expect it will look prettier and have some new features but basically it is just another in the long line.  



I wouldn't say a big release day.  This is what a normal release week should look like - a few average games.
