2561  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] 1.50 Downgrader now available! on: September 28, 2005, 05:45:04 PM

I am excited about this.  I have been dreading the next new game I buy for the PSP becuase I would lose Sam & Max....now I don't have to!

The best part? There are other 'programs' out there that trick your UMD games into thinking that you have a 2.0 PSP. Thus, as long as the game in question doesn't use any of the 2.0 advanced functions (which might happen eventually), you won't have to worry about ever upgrading.



That would be great!  Do they have a browser though?  That is the real functionality of 2.0 that I was interested in.
2562  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gaming Hours Per Week? on: September 28, 2005, 02:33:56 PM
I pretty much have the same amount of game time as you.  

Sometimes it feels like fighting to get any time to play.  Last night I really wanted to play some Indigo Prophecy but after making supper, walking the dog, picking up the house, and paying bills I just didn't have the energy.

Tonight is trash/recycling so that will mean cleaning the litter boxes, taking out trash, sorting the recycling and putting it out, and then maybe (fingers crossed) an hour or so for gaming.


My totally unscientific guess is that people who have a lot more time don't have a house (so no lawn maintance), don't have kids, or are in school.  I had a lot more time before I owned a house and when I was in school.  I shudder to think how much my time will be cut back if/when I have kids.

4 years, billions of dollars of losses, and people are still playing the "oh it's all part of MS' plan to gain market/mind share, they'll make it all back someday, ITS AMAZING HOW FAR THEY'VE COME ALREADY" card.

You guys crack me up.


 :roll: I know you understand basic business expansion principles, so please don't throw that stuff out there. 4 years is nothing in a business expansion cycle-it is far far too early to tell what the result will be. And yes, to Microsoft 4 billion is not prohibitive losses-whats that? Nintendo made a few million last year!! Yay!! Cookies for all!




The only thing that makes me roll my eyes is that everytime a lose is reported for any other company it is heralded as doom and gloom whereas MS is so good at spin it becomes good for them to lose money!

I understand it takes money to make money...so does Sony but people don't have a hard time seeing terrible things for them when they report losses.

I am still interested but I have to say that the reviews are not inspiring.  

I will probably get it but not until I have finished some other games.

Well, I got the greenlight again . . . with a little disposable income.  I've been enjoying all of your reviews and feedback on these games, but I was wondering if you could weigh-in and help me decide which one I should get out of the below.
1. Madden 06 PSP
2. Advance Wars DS
3. MLB PSP
4. Wipeout Fusion PSP
5. . . . or wait next week for Castlevania DS.
???


Doesn't a lot of this depend on your tatstes?  I mean just on scores from reviews they are all about the same so they are all good games so more information would be needed.
2567  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP 2.0 firmware finally cracked... on: September 27, 2005, 01:07:05 PM
It seems great until reading about it.  I supose it is the first step but until it can play Sam & Max I will stay at 1.50
2568  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (9/26) on: September 26, 2005, 07:51:24 PM
Lost in Blue and Lunar for the DS - after I see reviews.  I am really excited about LIB becuase it seems to make some interesting use of the touch screen and the two screens but it could be terrible.  The risk is so much higher with inovation.
2569  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] Hot Shots Golf - annoying but I can't stop playing! on: September 26, 2005, 05:16:05 PM
Quote from: "rrmorton"
Wow, impatience is not a virtue. It's golf. I really like the pacing of unlockables in PSP HSG. I've stuck with the first character the whole time and I've got my rank up to HSG King and about 95% item completion. After that, I'll move on to the next character and start all over. Fun shit!


Your crazy! smile

I wouldn't mind if it was more like Mario Golf for the GBA - where you played one character and the courses unlocked as you won tournaments.  

It just is annoying to play the first 2 courses 20 or so times to get another course unlocked.  

At least it is to me, others may be crazy...I mean find that fun.  :roll:
2570  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best time to enter "everytenminutes" points? on: September 26, 2005, 03:55:57 PM
Yeah the whole 4 AM thing doesn't help much but I figure that at least there wouldn't be people awake (well many anyway) so it would only be us freaks who were worried about odds who put them in for some weird time like 4:10 AM.  


I am still trying to figure out the odss for different numbers of caps.  I am thinking puttting in more is better.
2571  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best time to enter "everytenminutes" points? on: September 26, 2005, 03:25:13 PM
I looked in the recycling bin at work today and found 5 caps for points in the everytenminutes.com Xbox 360 give away and I was wondering when the best time to use them was.

Part of me thinks I should go for something like 4AM when no one will really be awake, but I figure lots of people will think that....but any close times have thousands of people already entered so the odds seem to suck.


And then there is the question of how to distribute the points.  Should I put all 5 in one drawing?  Or in 5 different ones?  Any folks good at stats who could say which one is statistically better?



Since I loath Mt. Dew (and most Pepsi products) this may be my only chance so I want to make the most of it!


Thanks,
2572  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / [PSP] Hot Shots Golf - up for trade on: September 26, 2005, 02:56:09 PM
I am tired of this game so I am ready to trade it.  Any offers will be considered.

I have a PS2, Xbox, Cube, NDS, PC, and PSP (yeah I am a bit of a game console whore) so pretty much anything is possible.  

Thanks,

I really dislike the way they unlock stuff in this game.  Well two parts anyway - characters and courses.

You spend tons of time with the first two characters before you even see another possiblity which means that the character is pretty upgraded and loyal, etc.  Naturally at that point you really don't want to swap so in fact by making it take so long to get new characters I find that don't want to change.

Courses are even worse.  I have played the first two so much I want to puke.  I hate them by now.  Why not have all the courses available after 1 win in a tournament on the previous course?  


Even with that I do love the mechanics of the game and the gameplay.  So I downloaded a saved game with all courses and characters unlocked but then everything is unlocked so it is just a bunch of open tournaments....which is dull.

So I am bored one way or bored the other....I love the game, really I do but I think it is time to trade it off.

Forum talk is that the Xbox version is better.  I don't know which version I'm getting yet either.


I believe you are talking about Indigo Prophecy since that is the post right before yours...if not ignore this.

Where were you hearing that?  I would love to hear some comparisons.  My PC should be able to make it look prettier (higher resolution) but I love sitting on the couch playing games on the bigger screen.  So if the Xbox version is actually better I will definitly be picking that one up.

I haven't been following Ninja Gaiden:Black that closely - is it just NG + the hurrcane packs + an easy mode?  Or did they add more to it than that?


It actually tempts me now that there's a n00b difficulty level biggrin


Ditto smile



I am tempted as well.  I am worried however that the "easy" mode for a game which was very, very difficult will just be difficult....which will still spank me all over.
2576  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? on: September 19, 2005, 07:04:28 PM
I may pick up Indigo Prophecy but I can't decide what to get it on since I have an Xbox, PS2, and PC.  

Has anyone heard anything about load times?  I prefer the Xbox if it loads fast but the PC may win out if the game loads slow on the consoles.

I hope the XBox 360 and PS3 offer some new experiences, but so far its just prettier graphics.  Maybe with more power we'll see some new stuff down the road.



I doubt we will.  Look at games you fine inovative with new experiences - are they ever the resource hogs?  Usually they are not that graphically intense or needing that much horsepower.

The best examples I can think of are PC games but stuff like Darwinia, Mount and Blade, or Katamari Damacy for the PS2.  They are not held back because of power.

The lack of actual impressions for this game disturbs me.
For a title that seemed to be anticipated by quite a few people here, the fact that there are only a couple of short, not so glowing reviews so far, means that my copy will stay unopened. I have a feeling I am not alone.


You might not be alone but I am not with you.  I cracked open my copy as soon as I had it in my hot little hands.

I am on mission 10 or so now and I love it.  The grapics are very good and the gameplay is a lot of fun.  

Combat is exactly what I expected with TB strategy battles in buildings and outside.  You have a varitety of weapons and methods to kill the enemy (as they do you).  I think it moves along fairly quickly for a TB game but I have read other people saying the combat was slow.

The story....well it isn't the strong point really.  It is akin to a B grade horror movie but it is passible and sometimes interesting.  

Sound is good but there isn't a lot to say about it.


Overall I am really enjoying the game and can't wait to get home to put more time into it.

SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA, Europe Ltd. today announced CHROMEHOUNDS for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. This squad-based action title puts gamers in control of giant mechanized military weapons of war. With a strong focus on cooperative and competitive online gameplay, the game is sure to satisfy players looking for a deep, involving Xbox Live experience.




They lost me.  It sounds like this will be an on-line game with - at best - a flimsy single player game.

Broken Sword looks amazing, but the cut scenes run a little slow. Amazing emu though, only one I use at the moment..



I was floored by how good Sam and Max looked.  If BS is as good or better I will check it out.

I am really amazed at how well these old adveture games have held up.  If they were released today I would buy them.  (especially if they worked out the interface a bit more for the PSP!)

I am amazed at how little info there is out there about how to do it.  I struggled a long time trying to figure out how to compress the sound file to a size which would fit on my memory stick (I only bought a 128 meg one).  Eventually I blundered on the right way but it wasn't intuitive.  

Now I am a l33t guy right?  smile

I've finally upgraded the firmware on my PSP.  That might because I've got everything I had on my PSP now on my Dell Axim. slywink  Mmmm....Sam and Max at 640x480 goodness.

You upgraded? Shame on you.

You'll be happy to know that the downgrader should be up and running in a few days. Revert that PSP back to where it should be - a powerful emulation machine that's portable. biggrin


Can't they crack 2.0?  Becuase it will be a pain to have to upgrade to play a game, then downgrade before playing an emulatory, then upgrade when you pop in the game again...

So I have my PSP, and my Sam & Max Hit the Road CD sitting here....where do I go to figure out how to put the game on the memory stick and play it?  I am clueless about this.

Any help would be great.

2600  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Thinking of buying a PSP - what should I know? on: September 01, 2005, 08:13:45 PM
I think the critical mass of games I want to play has been reached with the PSP so I will be picking one up.  However it seems like a complicated system so I had some questions.

1. I would like to play Sam and Max (it is sitting in my basement on CD-ROM so I do own it).  Do I need to be careful which PSP I buy?  Meaning do new ones sold have updated firmware?  Which firmware should I make sure the machine has?

2. How big of a memory stick do I need?  It comes with a 32 meg one but I bet that is too small.

3. What is the best price?  I have seen them as low as $230 on Ebay for new ones but is that too risky?  

4. What else should I know?


Thanks
