I am really thinking of picking this up but I have so much to play already I feel like I am just adding another pretty icon to never touch. Still I love their games on the PC so I know I would love it....

Not doing well on Rottentomatoes, although there is no consensus yet.

Gameplay footage. from someplace called Gamingbolt.  I hadn't seen it before.  Looks great.  This actually makes me wish I had a PS3.

2645  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Legend of Zelda: The Skyward Sword on: June 08, 2011, 05:11:15 PM
It did make me reconsider selling my Wii.  I never play it but it can sit for a few months until this is out.  Zelda games are always top quality.

That is just amazing and sad.  Very cool use of web technology though.

I am going to unsticky this thread because after turning my house upside down I cannot find the cable and CD! 

I am very sorry and I hope everyone will be able to find another source if they need them.

2648  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (05/16) on: May 16, 2011, 09:05:53 PM
L.A. Noire.  First new game purchase for the 360 in many, many months!  (and probably the last until Skyrim)

Gametrailers liked it as well

2651  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FS/FT: Radiant Historia [DS] - $25 - lowered price on: May 14, 2011, 04:45:03 PM
Lowered the price since no one seemed interested.

2652  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Thor Impressions' on: May 13, 2011, 05:17:30 PM
I saw it last night and was very happy.  I wasn't blown away but it was a very solid well done movie.  I wouldn't have minded more action or perhaps more clear action but overall the movie was very good.   It was a very good way to start off the summer movie season.
2653  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Thor Impressions' on: May 11, 2011, 08:28:01 PM
I was going to post the RT scores as well.  I wonder how they decide their sources.  I would think that metacritic and RT would have the same scores since they basically just average reviews from papers etc. but obviously they use enough different sources to really skew things.

2654  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FS/FT: Radiant Historia [DS] - $35 on: May 10, 2011, 01:29:08 PM
Saddly, yes.  Enough that I bought it already.  Sorry.

2655  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS/FT: Radiant Historia [DS] - $25 - lowered price on: May 09, 2011, 03:49:50 PM
I want to love this game but I just don't feel it so I am offering it up.  $25 shipped or offer a trade but the only trade I am really interested in would be Assassins Creed: Brotherhood for the 360.  However I am always willing to think over any offer.

Thanks
2656  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Should I buy a 3DS on: May 06, 2011, 05:01:19 PM
Thanks for the advice.  I think I will wait.  New technology often does this to me and I know that if I wait a month or two there will either be something I really really want or the desire will fade. 

Heck in the mean time I have Dragon Quest 9, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Chrono Trigger, and Professor Layton & the Diabolical Box I can work through.  With the amount of time I get to play that should take years. smile


2657  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Should I buy a 3DS on: May 05, 2011, 09:18:27 PM
As happens often with new technology I am wanting it but I can't decide if it is worth getting.  Right now I have a DS XL and a lot of games in my backlog to play.  The only thing on the 3DS I am really interested in playing is Zelda but I never played the ocarina of time and it looks really fun. I also see a lot of possible games coming out in the next year which I might really enjoy (a dragon quest game, a devil survivor game, and a paper mario game to name a few).  I will get the most money for the DSXL the sooner I trade it in or sell it so if I am going to do it the sooner the better

Oddly the think I care about the least is the 3d.  I have looked at it and I can kind of see it in Street Fighter 3d but it isn't really noticeable enough to me to be wowed by it.  I mostly just want to have the system that will be getting the most focus of developers.  If I knew the 3DS would grow and grow I would probably get it but it might just be a fad that dies off in a year or two or always struggles to have quality titles.  Nintendo doesn't always hit a home run after all.

Are those of you who purchased the system still happy?  Had the honeymoon worn off?  What say you hive mind? smile

Thanks for any input.

Looks like a rather typical sword and sorcery movie.  Hopefully there will be more to it but considering the other films in the same genre being released it sort of wins by default.

Between the long wait times and not giving you the games in the order you want is one of the things I hate about the service.  It's still cheaper to use, but at least be logical and efficient about it.


I think their default logic is that you want all the games equally and they ship based on what they have right now.  With that logic their system makes sense or at least more sense. 
2660  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: CNN - Obama to announce that Osama Bin Laden has been killed on: May 02, 2011, 03:57:34 PM
I think this is good news but I don't really see it as monumental.  I don't think anyone believes we are suddenly going to recall our troops around the world who are fighting terrorists.  I don't think anyone believes we are going to scrap our "no fly" lists, or stop checking all the things we do.  Really while perhaps symbolically important I don't see this as really changing much.  Perhaps it will, that would be nice.



2661  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly - Yea or Nay? on: April 27, 2011, 03:07:41 PM
I think that Gamefly is great if you are not interested in getting the newest games.  I you want to play Shadow Hearts: Covenant, or something else several years old but can't find it used they are great.  If you absolutely want to play something that came out this week then you are usually out of luck.  Still it is a great way to play games you don't really want to buy that are older. 
2662  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Royal Wedding...Why? on: April 26, 2011, 04:46:08 PM
I am not really interested but it was refreshing to see the news this morning being about something happy rather than death, war, etc.  It is all about a happy celebration.  Seriously when was the last time we had this much media attention on a happy event?  It feels good to celebrate rather than be sad, or mad.

2663  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Doctor has lost a companion on: April 20, 2011, 04:17:48 PM
One of the only companions to go on to something else I have heard of (Sarah Jane Adventures) 

I will miss her.

2664  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Radiant Historia [DS] radiates on: April 18, 2011, 09:03:04 PM
I just don't know if I "get" how to play this game.  I am at a point in one history where I can't seem to go forward but what do I do just go back to previous points and wander around and hope something happens?  This seems a little vague to me.  Maybe I am just not getting the game groove yet.

2665  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Let's talk data backup! on: April 18, 2011, 08:33:18 PM
I use Mozy and have set it up for several people.  2GB is free but you pay if you have more.  It runs nightly to do its thing. 

It occured to me at some point that it doesn't matter how much I backup at home if the house burns down so something like that.  I figure an offsite backup is a good investment.

2667  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which should I play first DQ9 or Radiant Historia on: April 05, 2011, 09:25:21 PM
I have started both of them (an hour at most) and I need to pick on to concentrate on.  If I don't force myself to focus I will never finish either of them. 

So for those of you who have played them which should I play first?

Quote from: hepcat on April 05, 2011, 02:16:24 PM

Incredibly annoying that weeks after launch I still have to roll the dice of chance even when arriving an hour early at the local apple store.  there was already a line when i got there and they only had verizon or at&t enabled ipads.  if it weren't for the damn apps, i would definitely go with an android tablet.  as it stands, i'm so annoyed right now I think i need to back away from the whole idea of an ipad for a while.  it's not worth this much hassle.

I feel the same way so I just ordered one from Apple directly.  It won't be in until the end of the month but I don't have to check multiple places each week with fingers crossed.  I don't think my time has much value (I can piss it away on almost anything) but it was just feeling stupid to keep checking stores.

Why is some of the best stuff for the PSP coming out now?  Why didn't they support it when it was in its prime?
2670  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Radiant Historia [DS] radiates on: March 23, 2011, 08:44:19 PM
I got it off Amazon.  I paid a bit more than average but I haven't bought a game for a long time (I use Gamefly almost all the time anymore) so I treated myself.

Now I just have to find time to play it!
2671  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wizardry : Labyrinth of Lost Souls coming to US on: March 23, 2011, 08:28:40 PM
I loved the one Wizardry I played (8 I think) but I am not going to buy a PS3 just for it.  Hopefully it will come to other systems.

See that's the thing - I've never once found my iPad to be 'slow'.  It's good at what it does.  Better is all well and good but it's not worth a $700 upgrade.  I don't feel the need of raw power for Evernote, Kindle, movie watching, and web browsing.  I'm sure I'd enjoy it being faster, but I sure as hell don't need it to be.

+1

I have yet to find an app or game which felt slow to me.  Now obviously they have designed for the iPad 1 but I just don't feel like horsepower is what I am lacking.  In fact I don't feel anything is lacking for me.  I love my iPad just like it is.

Hey, it occurred to me that I have a 360 HDD transfer cable that I checked out from here, and I was going to just send it back to farley... but if you want one, I could just send it to you and you could send it to him when you're done.

That would be great.  The more the merrier.

Beyond Good & Evil HD (XBLA)

I may get this but since I have finished it before I am having a hard time justifying it.

I am excited but cautious.   What propelled Oblivion was user mods so I am expecting this will make Skyrim great too but that is the kind of thing you don't see right away.  Plus now that Gavin Carter isn't with Bethesda we will have to see if they can produce as high of quality stuff.  slywink

I don't think it is yet either but I know that large companies often cant resist milking.
2677  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Assassins Creed to be announced in May on: February 15, 2011, 09:14:04 PM
It is hard to imagine a company not milking this until it is a dead franchise.  Hopefully we will get a few more great games out of it.

Can you stream movies to multiple tvs at the same time?

For instance:  I have the PS3 on one tv and the 360 on the other?

What about the pc and the tvs at the same time?

The closest I can get for you is that I have streamed on the 360 and the iPad at the same time.  That works fine.  I haven't tried a third device.  I don't see why it would be different but it might be.
