2561  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DS] Lunar: Dragon Song worth playing? on: July 17, 2006, 01:45:27 AM
I have held the game a couple times but I can't bring myself to buy it.  I have just heard to much bad stuff.

I think what finally tipped me over the edge was reading that you lost health when running on the map.  That is just piss poor game design.  It punishes the player for no reason what-so-ever.

Perhaps it isn't old enough but I am going to go with KoToR.  I got to be a Jedi.  It just satisfied a childhood dream in a way that no other game has.

2564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DS] Great FF3 gameplay video on: July 13, 2006, 01:14:39 PM
I loved it!

It just feels wonderful to see this game updated like that.  I can't wait till it comes out!
2565  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3's good points? on: July 05, 2006, 01:41:32 PM
Well if Blu-Ray wins it will be a very good point for the PS3.  

Other than that...it should look better in the 2nd and 3rd generation games since it has more horsepower.  



What confuses me is that Sony officials keep talking about the potential of the PS3.  What potential?  It will be able to play movies and play video games.  That is it.  It won't be a DVR, a router, or control the thermostat in my house.    While it may do those two things extremly well I don't see how it has more "potential" than the 360 or any other game console.
2566  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The programers for Suikoden 5 should be fired on: June 30, 2006, 07:00:55 PM
Quote from: "Skeld"

The story is pretty interesting, and the dialogues are pretty consistently good. But farley make sure you collect all 108 stars! The "normal" ending just came out of nowhere and irks me to no end. The "good" ending is far more satisifying.



The first two possibles are exactly why I know I will not get all 108

The first, Cornelio, is time based so if you don't get him by a certain point you lose him....but I have no reason to go back to that town!  I woulc bet that most people miss him.

The second, Sairoh....well let me quote a FAQ "Sairoh is a hard character to get, if not the most annoying in the game.
First, you need to get him to ask you to lower the price of Salt.  This can be
a pain as it is.  The first chance he will do this is after you have defended
Raftfleet.
To get him to ask you to lower the price of salt, you'll have to wait until
the game RANDOMLY raises the salt price in the first place.  There is no way
to control this, though you may want to try to buy all the salt out of
multiple locations and then sell it back a few times to try and influence it a
bit."

So I have to wait until he randomly decides to lower the price!  Come on.  Just how much time do I really need to invest?

I cannot imagine how it would be possible to get all 108 stars without a FAQ or multiple play throughs.
2567  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Release date for Final Fantasy 12 (I hate Romans) on: June 28, 2006, 07:37:46 PM
Acording to Worthplaying FF12 will be released in the US on October 31, 2006.

There is a lot of stuff coming out in the last part of this year!
2568  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Spider-Man's Back in Black on: June 28, 2006, 02:42:27 PM
I am interested but I can't imagine they can fit all that stuff in one movie.  3 villians and a love triangle, plus his own mental problems from the black suit.

I will see it but I can't imagine how they will provide quality time for all of those story lines.

I figured that was the case but I just don't have time to obsess about completeness.  I can't imagine being able to get all 108 without a FAQ becuase I think some people you have to get at certain times and if you don't you are s.o.l.  


This is what Youtube is for.  I have alread watched all the endings for Final Fantasy 10!   I expect that I will be able to find the good ending for Suikoden when I am done.

Strange that I didn't notice any of that. Maybe I'm more forgiving than you about the slowdown since I didn't notice any slowdown when I played it.


You are also more forgiving than several reviews I have read which mention the slowdown issues.  You are a very good person smile


The only time it really, really jarred me was when leaving the castle to go to Stormfist.  It was very, very noticable and really there wasn't much going onbut there were several people standing around you could talk to.
2571  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The programers for Suikoden 5 should be fired on: June 23, 2006, 01:31:42 PM
The writers should be given raises but the programers - boot their asses.  

This has to be the worst programed game I have ever played.  Frequent load screens, huge but sparse level design, slowdowns in many areas and very poor controller response are all the faults of the programers (well the sparse level design may have been someone elsees fault).  It is almost inexusable - and if the story and characters were not so good it would be out the door by now.  

I am just up to Stormfist and the story is really getting interesting but I am more and more fustrated with the quality of everything else.  I hit the button to bring up the menu and sometimes it doesn't even come up and when it does it is very slow.  I try to talk to people and generally have to wiggle around and hit the X button several times to get it to initiate conversation.   Then when I am in areas with over 10 people I start getting slowdowns!  

Man, this story better be kick-ass.

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.
2573  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?

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.
2577  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.
2578  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.

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?

2591  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.

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.

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.
2599  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.
