is there a difficulty selection?(easy,normal,hard)
Yep.

Really....how easy is easy?  I am a wimp, and I don't have much gaming time but I like the stories, I actually don't mind the gameplay mechanics.

I would say look over the game library.  If there are 5-6 games you want to play then it is worth it.  There doesn't seem to be a huge number of new titles so whether it is worth it depends on if you want to play what you can see now.

Must have titles would depend a lot on what kind of games you like.  Personally I have spent the most time in Hot Shots Golf (1&2), and Jean D'Arc but I don't know if you like those kinds of games.

I am not willing to pre-order but IGN certainly seemed to love it as well!

So, yeah -- I like Resistance: Retribution. A lot. I think it's probably one of the most complete packages ever to come to the PSP. It has an engaging storyline, a likeable main character, tons of reasons to play it again, and one of the greatest multiplayer outings we've ever seen on this system. I think the setup might tread a little bit too closely to its Syphon Filter roots and I wish the gameplay was just a bit more challenging as a standalone product, but those minor gripes shouldn't keep anyone from playing this excellent game.

*why do game companies just love ":"? 

Anyway Gametrailers has a review up of the soon to be released Resistance: Retribution.  It looks pretty good.  I was a lot more interested when I saw it was from the same folks who did Logan's Shadow.  I believe there was a demo for this - did anyone here try it?  Any impressions.

This comes out next week and I think I will put it at the top of my Gamefly queue.  It has been a long time since my PSP has been used.

Quote from: jersoc on March 05, 2009, 05:32:34 AM

you can get a free from MS too.

The form that I downloaded from MS asked for the serial numbers for my new elite and my old unit.  Since I bought just at 120 GB drive off Ebay I don't have two serial numbers to put in the form.  Is there another form I should be looking for?

2852  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GT Community 360 transfer cable checkout on: March 04, 2009, 04:42:26 PM
I am going to collect any 360 transfer cables folks have and would like to donate to GT.  Those cables can be requested by any member to borrow and use.  To keep it simple for everyone I think it would be best if people sent the cables back to me when they are done.  This way I will hopefully always have a cable or two to send to anyone who needs one and people won't have to worry about keeping track of the cables themselves.  You request it, I send it to you, you use, you send back to me, you can forget about it.  

So if you have a transfer cable you are not using anymore and would like to donate it to GT to share with other members PM me.  I will send you my address and you can send the cable to me.

If you are a member who needs a transfer cable PM me and I can get your address so I can send you one (this is after I actually get some! smile )

If you have any suggestions about ways to improve the system post here or PM me.  I have never done anything like this so I am sure there is room for improvement!


Thank you all for helping to help out others in the community!  
2853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone have a 360 transfer cable I could borrow? on: March 04, 2009, 02:29:00 PM
Alright I have the ok so I will post something "official" in another thread

Anyone who has a cable and wants to let it be shared by the GT community can PM me and I will send you my address.  Keep in mind, I can't promise people will return the cables so if you donate it please don't expect it back! (although you can always borrow another one smile )



2854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone have a 360 transfer cable I could borrow? on: March 03, 2009, 10:24:24 PM
So I bought my larger hard drive off ebay and I wasn't too worried about getting my stuff off the old one - until I realized that I will have to replay that boring long section on the Citadel of Mass Effect again if I don't get it off the old box!  That would be too much.  I just wouldn't ever play it again.

So I wondered if anyone here had upgraded, gotten a transfer cable and software, and was done.  I would pay shipping if I could just borrow it for a quick copy!

PM me if you happen to have one.

Pretty sure #1 is just the way Microsoft wants it. People have been asking for this since day 1 of the NXE.

I was afraid of that.  It is just annoying.  I can figure it out but when my mother-in-law wants to use the 360 to play music she doesn't need that kind of crap. 

Maybe I will work with my Harmony remote to send the correct button pushes to get to the music automatically.

I have been using PearBudget for the last month (30 day free trial) and I couldn't be happier.  I will be paying the $3 a month for it.
 
This is just for budgeting though.  It has no interface to your bank accounts etc.

It is a 30 day free trial though so you really can't lose. 

2859  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 question - about changing startup defaults on: March 02, 2009, 09:51:27 PM
I would like to change two things and I wondered if it was possible

1. I don't want it to start with the "spotlight" I would prefer it to just be at "My Xbox" when starting.  I don't see that as an option - any ideas?

2. While it is fun to see who is on line I really don't need popups when I am watching a DVD or even in a game.  Can I disable those notifications?

Thanks,

Quote from: rittchard on March 02, 2009, 09:28:51 PM

I guess I am still wondering if the combat or levelling/classes gain much more depth later?  Are there any choices to make in that arena?  Does combat become more strategic at any point?

I am a bit farther than you and I played DQ8.  My answer is "No".  Combat and leveling will not get more depth later.  It is very old school so it will continue as it has. 

You can do some fun things like capture monsters and use them to fight - and I bet fight in an arena type deal.  There is also a casino where you can play some mini games.

So if that doesn't sound good I wouldn't stick with it much longer.   I would stick with it until the "event"  Believe me you will know.  If you are not hooked after that I would dump it.  There are just too many great games to bother playing one you don't find fun.


2861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone tried to upgrade their 360 HD themselves? on: March 02, 2009, 02:17:59 PM
I was going to do it but this weekend on ebay I found a 120 GB drive for $80.  $30 more than if I did it myself but I shouldn't have any worries about being banned or having to hex edit the partitions myself.

I think the market for separate 120 GB drives has died since MS has lowered their prices so there are a lot of cheap drives around.


2862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: DQV Impressions on: February 27, 2009, 07:23:24 PM

Great tutorial I found. 

The only thing I would care about is losing my Netflix streaming.  I don't play online but I do watch movies. 
2865  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone tried to upgrade their 360 HD themselves? on: February 26, 2009, 09:43:13 PM
Correct.  I want to buy a hard drive from say newegg and put it in the enclosure myself.  There seem to be utilities on the web for formatting the drive with the correct partitions for the 360, and I know I need to get a specific model of hard drive for it to work but I wondered if anyone had tried it here.

2866  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone tried to upgrade their 360 HD themselves? on: February 26, 2009, 09:18:55 PM
How is it?  I am thinking of doing it because it is a lot cheaper but I don't know how hard it might be.  Anyone tried it?

To be honest, yes. 

Why is it that every other industry is out there shouting loudly about how piracy is dooming them but the folks at Sony can't even seem to hire a firm to come up with some numbers?  Do they just not care?  Are the just dumb?...Ok after looking at the PS3 maybe they are so that isn't a good example....

Still if piracy was such a problem one would think that it would be a pretty frequently mentioned statistic but it isn't.  Yours is the best link I have seen and that is just to some guy posting in a forum.

No.  They will all have DSes with the R4 card to steal those games.  Pirating PSP games is sooo 2007! 

Right, because nobody pirates PSP games.  You can tell by the stellar PSP software sales.  If everyone is so busy pirating DS games, why does Mario Kart DS and New Super Mario keep showing up in the top 10 NPDs?

Rather than go through this again, please just supply one link to any industry information about piracy rates on the PSP.  Just one.  There are many on PC game piracy, tons on music piracy, a gaggle on TV/Movie piracy.  So it should be simple to provide one about PSP piracy.  Really, just one.

I'll wait....

One..

That took approximately 3 seconds of googling. smile

I have a hard time believing that " Rlan from NeoGAF" counts as industry information.  Seems like a person on a forum going a search.

The thing is people really don't have 6 kids naturally and then 8 more naturally (statistically speaking anyway).  This is the result of modern medicine and it's "we can do it, so why not do it" mentality.
