7281  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Great Canadian Wii Hunt or Gone in 160 Seconds on: June 07, 2007, 03:01:39 PM
Yesterday I did my weekly wii-kly rounds of checking Canadian retail sites for Wii's for a friend that now lives in the Bay area and who's had no luck locating one in SF. So I did the usual check of, and, and low and behold to my amazement there's 7 Wii's in stock at This was a 1st as I've never seen anything listed other than a big '0' or 'Not in Stock'. So I immediately place my order and nab one; yeah my friend will no longer go for want! smile  As soon a I completed my order I noticed the stock was now at 3.

I immediately holler over to a coworker who's just walked into room and he jumps on the futureshop site and...and.... nada, zilch, zero; not a single Wii left! I figure about 2-1/2 minutes transpired before the stock was completely depleted; hence the name of my post. You here about sell rates like this being boasted about by Big 'N' brass, but it's always amazing when you see it with your own eyes.  icon_eek

I have been really nervous about buying a 360 because of the issues everyone has had.  I would really like to pick one up to be a companion to my PS3.  Has anyone heard if the new elite edition has had similar issues.

Personally, I'd wait til the expected 65nm processor revision this fall

Which is what I'm doing, but the more and more I hear of the significant failure rate the less confident I am that the 65nm SKU will be any better. I'm definitely not buying one until there's a price drop so that I can use the savings to buy a 3 year replacement warranty.  paranoid

You know what game demands respect?  Windjammers for the NEOGEO.  One of the most fun games I've played.  Would be PERFECT for a Xbox Live, PSN or Virtual Console title.  But noOoOoOoO

Your wish might be granted as they are releasing Neo Geo games on the VC later this year.

Really...when was that announced? I've heard mention of that before, but I thought it was only a flippant rumor. If it's now been confirmed that's fantastic!! Fatal Fury would be a nice VC addition and SF:3rd Strike with a classic controller would be sweet indeed!

[Edit] Which in keeping with the theme of this thread, leads me to say that 3rd Strike is a far too unappreciated SF game. By far my favorite in the entire SF series.

Jason Ocampo (of Gamespot) reviewed it.

Review is on the short side, but it's a pretty good read I guess.


Considering it's GS that gave it a 7.5, it's probably a decent game and very likely worth playing. GS scores are so tight these days, a game scoring 7.0 or higher usually warrants some consideration.
I don't even bother with demos for space or flight sims anymore as support for 3rd party input devices is usually pooched but often working in the finished game. If the price is as low in my neck of the woods as others have reported and some other favourable reviews come in, I'll probably give this a whirl.

BTW: For anyone getting killed from the get go. I've found it helpful to use a voice command utility in space or flight simulators. Just too much flying by the seat of you pants to be fidgeting with a keyboard. A hotas with lots of mappable buttons is even better, but unfortunately costly.
7285  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft trying to kill PC gaming? on: June 06, 2007, 06:16:03 PM
I can agree with some things in the article. Definitely agree that making already released Xbox or 360 games dependend on Vista and DirectX 10 is one of the stupidest things MS has done in some time. They should do what Bioware did with JE and release Halo 2 so that it runs on what people currently have, not what they might have 3-6 months from now; I mean WTF!! The comments about the state of support on Shadowrun leads me to believe that FASA's status as a MS game studio is very tenuous at the moment. And all of this article reminds me that Ed DeVries (or was it DeFries) is sorely being missed at the games division.

And yes Games for Windows Live should be called Win Live or maybe even Vista Live; the current name is just a marketing nigthmare. I also agree that the right and honest thing to do with Win Live would be to make it a socketable API that other services such as Xfire and Steam could plug into. But  based upon the ca$h cow that Live currently is for MS, I'm quite sure we'll never see this.

I ditto some others here that we're not going to see other OS's make significant inroads on PC gaming. Having watched DirectX over the years handedly beat Glide, OpenGL and the short lived VMRx API's I don't see any real competition to it in the foreseeable future. DirectX is why developers have stuck with Windows and the delivery of XNA has only strengthened this further. If there's one thing MS gets right its the dev tools and game Dev's love to use them. IMHO this is the reason why the XBox was able to build up such a large catalog of games; god knows it certainly wasn't the market share.

I've gotta say, I just used the Gametap free service to download TR: Legends and damn I'm really impressed with it!
It did take about 20 hours to download but it is after all 4.7 GB's.
I love the look and feel of the service's gui; more functional and better looking than any of the console dashboards I've used. And I really like that it will run in a perfect widescreen resolution and aspect on my HDTV.

I have a question; if you upgrade to the full product, are there limits to the number of games or total GB's you can download per month?

And that sir is exactly why I'm not a big fan of Live. Too many immature people with major attitude. Has anyone ever told these people children that it's just a game and not the freaking Beijing Olympics. I'll gladly use the service for downloadable content, but I'll think twice before engaging in online play that isn't coop.

Personally I'm just not a good enough FPS player to even begin being ranked, so it isn't much skin off my back. But I've seen my son in tears after he's been booted from 1 SW:BF2 game after another only because he's beating players that think they're the uber'est Jedi's.

BTW My 10 year old son doesn't trash talk, doesn't swear, sticks with his team and generally behaves better than many of the so called adults on Live.

[Wii] Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2
It has some of the best controls I've ever experienced in a fighting game; keeping in mind I haven't played MK: Armageddon for the Wii yet. The depth and variety of content in this game is just mind boggling.

[DS] Mechassualt: Phantom Wars
It may have a few issues here and there with graphics clipping, but overall it's a good solid mechassault game. The security hacking in it is very cool. Sound and voice acting were also very good. Sometimes it's the little things, and in keeping with that this game has the best manual I've ever seen for any DS game.

[PC] Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines
I have to agree with others here that this is a very underappreciated game. Admittedly it was pushed out the door to early, but once patched this game is amazing.

I just saw this news article over at GameSpot:;title;6

Apparently the recenly founded studio Renegade Kid has started work on a survival horror game for the DS.  The 2 founders of this studio worked previously on Turok 2, Area 51, Stubbs the Zombie and The Red Star. Which sits real well with me because, other than Area 51,  I really liked those games. In fact I'm currently playing The Red Star and enjoying it very much. smile thumbsup

GTA:VC for the PC was my biggest dissapointment. I finally got it a few months ago and played it for about 5 hours before I stopped and then eventually uninstalled it. Maybe if I'd played the original on the PS2 or played the XBox release, but the PC version did nothing for me. The controls were just crap as you either had to go strictly keyboard or gamepad when what I really wanted was keyboard for on foot and gamepad for vehicles. And to make things worse the keyboard vehicle controls were complete, utter crap as were the gamepad for on foot control! Don't know why Rockstar couldn't get this right; Crytek certainly got it right for Far Cry.

Plus the fact that the story wasn't appealing to me in any way at all. The camera perspective and control was also very poor; even after I applied a 3rd party patch that was supposed to help with them. Overall quite a dissapointment considering all the hype and high scoring reviews it got and all the "oooh the controls are so uber in the PC version" I've heard.
Thank god I only payed $10 for it.

I'd only heard of this because it was the June "shame of the month" in EGM.  It got 3.0, 4.0, 3.5 scores. 

Some comments:

"...people who might want to try the multiplayer mode, please reconsider."

"...a game with some of the worst 3D graphics in recent memory"

"an autoengaging autopilot with knack for tossing you into buildings if you stray too far from the preset flight path."

It didn't sound like much fun.

Oh crap! Well that's why I always wait for at least a few reviews. Mind you these review scores are from EGM; a publication I have little or no respect for. But in all fairness, if a games at least good usually 1 of the EGM reviewers will score it 7.0 or higher.
I'm just too fed up with EGM's reviews where the variance between reviewers is as much as 4.0 points. It's like reading reviews written by someone simultaneously suffering from schizophrenia and mutliple-personality disorder.

I bought it yesterday and really didn't get much of a chance to play it as my son and daughter took to it like Mario to Italian, designer coveralls. And I'm not ready to buy 2 additional Wiimote quite yet; this game might push me though.
From what I could see of the game play, it's a good Mario Party game. It definitely appears to be better than Mario Party 5, which is the last entry in the series that I bought.

Nintendo hasn't won Japan until some of the obscure, niche RPGs start getting announced. When the Atlus support is full blown, and we see a better variety of titles then I may call it a game.

I couldn't agree more. The real measuring stick is when all the JRPG's and 3rd parties that fled the N64 for the greener pastures of the PS1 come home to Big N's Wii. I can't see how this won't eventually happen once the PS2 sails into the sunset. Unfortunately it appears the PS2 has some ability to rotate the Earth backwards and prolong the sunset.  Roll Eyes  But all in time...

7297  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Godfather Gameplay: Similiar to the GTA Franchise? on: June 04, 2007, 03:37:49 PM
The only GTA I've played, other than the original on the PC, is Vice City. After about 5 hours of getting the run around and getting arrested, I gave up. Just a bit too frustrating and not enough to it for me I guess. I also didn't find the story at all appealing.

I tried to get into the Godfather on the XBox and PC but I quit playing both times after about 3 hours. I then rented it for the Wii and I can say the Blackhand edition is far more enjoyable; played it for about 16 hours before I had to return it. I was tempted to run out and buy it immediately, but honestly I felt a bit guilty about the enjoyment I was having doing too many evil deeds; still plan on buying it eventually.
From what little I played of GTA I can say they are somewhat similar, but the story from the get go is far superior in the GodFather.

Tomb Raider Anniversary is very temping, but I really can't decide on which system I should get it for; PS2 or PC. I played the original and it's 2 sequels on the PC, but I enjoyed the controls on the XBox version of TR: Legends better than any of these. Decisions....decisions...

I know it's not a jet sim per se, but if you are set on Vietnam, there is a fairly new helo siim

I haven't checked it out myself, I just picked up Enemy Engaged 2.  Otherwise you could get one of those old EA sims, US Navy Fighters and fly the F4 slywink

I've always wanted an F4 sim, it's been one of my favorite jets for a long time.

If you want to fly a phantom in a jet sim, Wings Over Vietnam is a must buy. The F-4 is the featured jet in that sim and it's superbly modeled having by far the most challenging and realistic flight model. Even the wild weasel variant (F-4j) is available to play. Plus the fact that you get to do some serious mud moving in an Intruder (A-6) or Thud (F-105); nuff said. smile

I still have not bought anything on the VC. The pricing is ridiculous, but what really stops me from getting anything is not being able to transfer the games to another Wii if I ever had to. I am sure I will break down eventually though.

Well, technically Nintendo keeps track of all of your purchases. If you keep your Wii number handy, and you have to send in your console for repairs, you should be able to tell Nintendo this and they'd be able to transfer them or give you credit somehow.

I also believe there's an option to register your Wii with Nintendo so that VC game purchases will automatically be registered. I can't remember if this is an option in the Wii configuration or an option on the website.

Paper Mario 64 and Breath of Fire 2 would be excellent additions to the VC library. Both of these will be day 1 purchases for me when they're available to N.A.

Do you have any light sources or anything reflective like a window or a glass cabinet near your TV?  Try using the Wii remote calibrator and you can see if it's picking up any extraneous IR sources, and you can try to drop the sensitivity so they get ignored.

I ditto's the only thing I know that can cause the error you're describing. My HDTV is stored in a cabinet that has retractable doors that can be used to shield the sides of the screen from light. Therefore I don't run the risk of light sources interfering with the Wii sensor bar and have consequently never encountered this problem.

I've had my Wii for over 6 months now and the only error I've ever had was 1 system lockup that occurred while playing POP - Rival Swords; damn that prince, his wild antics are too disruptive! smile

Reviews are hammering it, but I need forum feedback!!

I wouldn't hold much stock in reviews when it comes to Mario Party games as many reviewers seem to miss the point. They seem to put the mini-games under a microscope and apply a review criteria that they'd use for a Capcom or Konami greatest hits collection. Which is a problem because those collections are usually comprised of what were AA and AAA quality games back in their day.

The review average so far for MP8 is about on target (71%). In fact after 9 reviews MP8 is only 5% lower than the highest ranked MP game ever; the original N64 game. I really wish GT would post a review because I thought this sites review of Mario Party 5 was one of the best I've ever read.
I'm going to buy this game for my kids and I have no doubt they'll have a blast playing it.

have you ever played MiG Alley?  it's a jet dogfighting sim set in the Korean war...not quite the era you're looking for, but a great flight sim in any case.

Although Mig Alley was an outstanding flight sim in it's day -still has one of the best dynamic campaigns to this day- it's definitely showing it's age. I still have it installed and occassionaly play it, but I much prefer the Korean war mods that were created for Wings Over Vietnam and other sims. MA had a significant patch created for it by a user mod group named BDG, but unfortunatley online play is still completely pooched. Despite the excellent work of the BDG group the sim is prone to random crashes which unfortunately can pooch a lenghty campaign. The BDG group is also no longer creating mods for it and the original developer -Rowan- went out of business long ago.

Hell, watching golf is more exciting than NASCAR. Circuit races are great but not as fun on tv; rally races are great. I love rally racing sims, sounds like this one's good as long as they didn't make the controls too far from simulation.

I haven't played one since Lock-On, which I thought was pretty good... I mostly liked the A10 missions.

I was particularly interested any good vietnam jet sims.


IMHO the best Vietnam era jet sim is Wings Over Vietnam by Third Wire Software. This sim was developed by TK, the famed developer that previously worked on LongBow 2 and European Air War. You can get it in retail or purchase it from the site; last time I checked it was $29. This games is definitely a simulation, but it's not as deep and detailed as LOMAC or Falcon AF; which IMO is a good thing. If you're looking for an equivalent to either or those, I'm afraid you're SOL in regards to a Vietnam theme. This game is supported very well by the developer; they've released no less that 3 major patches many of which have added additional features.

The user community support for WOV is just mind boggling, including a massive amount of free and some very high quality pay-for add-ons; Yankee Air Pirate being the most significant. There's also multiplay capabilities via HyperLobby, but to the best of my recollection it's limited to dogfighting and 2 player co-op missions. Another thing to consider about Vietnam era sims is that you won't get the advanced BVR radar and IR weapon capabilities that you have in a modern sim like LOMAC or Falcon AF. BVR weaponry was very new in the Vietnam airwar and wasn't terribly reliable. These limitations are modeled realistically in WOV and make for a challenging game.

If you want more info on the game, the forums on or are excellent sources. If you plan on playing it and want to get into some multiplay, PM me. I personally love going up against Mig 19's and 21's in my CF-5A  smile

Not a very good VC week unfortunately, especially coming on the heels of last weeks knockout releases.  I've been told to avoid JJ & Jeff at all costs and that Kid Chameleon had very bleh graphics even for it's time and so-so gameplay.
Actraiser however makes up for the other 2 and it's a game I'm very much looking forward to; coworker said it was extreme eye candy back in the day. I'm just not sure I'll buy it instead of The Secret of the Mystical Ninja.

Didn't realize Mario Party was coming out this week.  Gonna have to find some piggy banks to bust open to get that as well.

Same here, I'd completely forgotten about it. I traded in Mario Party 4 some time ago and promised my kids I'd buy them a newer Mario Party. My kids are going to be thrilled about this on Friday. Thankfully pay days on Thursday. smile

I have 9 VC games and yes the only game I regret buying is also Dungeon Explorer, but for $6 I not crying. I've been very surprised at the quality and overall fun factor of the games I've bought. I've also been surprised at how difficult many of them are. I didn't personally own any of the 16 bit systems so most VC games are new to me. In fact other than Super Mario 64, Star Fox 64  and Donkey Kong Country all are 1st time experiences. Here's the games I own:

Donkey Kong Country
Super Mario 64
Super Mario World
Gunstar Heroes
Ninja Spirit
Star Fox 64
Bomberman 93
Toe Jam and Earl
Dungeon Explorer

I'm planning on buying Streets of Rage 2 and Secret of the Mystical Ninja within the next 2 weeks.

BTW: Does anyone know what this weeks VC game release are?
