2721  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / God of War 2 - trailer on: April 24, 2006, 03:17:06 PM
Holy Crap!  This looks incredible!

Now lets just pray they heard the bitching about the stupid "hell" level and added more of the stuff people loved.
2722  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 to get processor upgrade in 2007 on: April 21, 2006, 04:07:36 PM

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?
2723  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MARKETPLACE - New Oblivion Quest Up - The Orrery on: April 17, 2006, 08:11:17 PM
From what I have read on Evil Avatar it can take around 15 minutes to complete the quest.  Hopefully it will offer some great reward becuase it certainly doesn't add a lot of playtime.
2724  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.

How do you want to play?  The only folks I have seen who are upset are "min/maxers" - people who want to powergame.  If you just want to relax and play then there are no worries about how to create your character.

so,they are saying that it will be less powerful than the last xbox 1?.....

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.
2732  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.

2734  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wal-Mart to stop selling UMD movies on: March 30, 2006, 03:35:41 PM
It would be hard to count either HD-DVD or Blu-Ray out until they actually come out. smile


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.
2735  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wal-Mart to stop selling UMD movies on: March 30, 2006, 03:00:12 PM
According to Next Generation.


Quote
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 removed my other post as you addressed this, my appologise.  


And yes as has been pointed out those 5 words do change everything.   As was pointed out it is like only comparing clock speeds between AMD and Intel.  It is not a useful comparison.

Good points


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.  


Here are this weeks releases (according to Gamers With Jobs)

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.

Typing names in on the 360 sucks. Not to mention I have to keep my browser up, look over, type, look over, type. If I could just add them from www.xbox.com or something I could cut/paste - it would be much, much easier.

Can I do that? I see no option for that when I go there but maybe I am missing something.

Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"
I have to wait til monday to play this.  Sure, I could technically play it on this min-spec machine at my parents' house, but why bother?

I love the Blunt tabard/icon/design thing.  There's an axe right smack in the middle of it.

I mean, you want two melee weapon categories, Swords and Everything Else, that's fine.  I think it would have been more professional to call the other category "Non-Blades" or even "Everything Else."  Calling it "Blunt" and having it include axes is just fucking retarded.

kathode, who the hell signed off on that?  I'd think it was a silly oversight, but then, someone made art depicting axes as Blunt weapons.



Obsess much?  

It has been known for a long time that would be the situation and yet it still just seems to drive you nuts.  

I suggest you just return the game because this one tiny issue seems to ruin the whole game for you.



Was it a good decission?  Probably not but it works, it is consistant, clear, and works fine so how long will you beat the same dead horse?

On a side note, I have to admit that I'm feeling a little underwhelmed with the graphics, especially after seeing all of those beautiful screenshots leading up to the release.  The skyboxes are exceptional, and the foliage looks great up close but the mipmapping, grass/rock/object popup, and fog usage makes me feel like I'm playing FarCry on an old PC.  It's probably still one of the best looking games out there, but I guess I was expecting a more consistent look after seeing all those purdy screenshots....


I feel this way a bit as well.  I guess I figured that with a console they couldn't really tweak shots but it seems like they did.

I've never played Daggerfall or Morrowind before.  I recently got into Gothic 2, and loved it.  

Can anyone who's played both types of games before tell me if this is similar?  I understand Oblivion will be open ended, but have a story line in it also.  

What I'm looking for is a similar experience.  Since I haven't been able to pick up Gothic 1 and am eagerly waiting for Gothic 3, I'm hoping Oblivion will be the same type of enjoyment.

If you follow the story line, is it like Gothic?  How much bigger is the game world?  

Any other comparisons would be appreciated as I'm thinking about picking up this game today.

Thanks


It is as similar as any game out there except Gothic 1.  If you loved Gothic 2 I would say you will enjoy Oblivion.  

I am not sure if it is as tight of a story as Gothic 2.   The Elder Scrolls seems to favor very, very open ended gameplay.

Combat is a bit more simplistic in Oblivion, but it is very similar.  

Oblivion is much, much prettier but that is a given considering Gothic 2 looked average at best.  

Hope that helps

Perhaps but the original poster mentioned two games they had played.  While it may be more like some 3rd or 4th game it seems better to use the original posters games becuase they know about those games.
