10) Worms
9) Street Fighter
Cool Star Fox
7) Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
6) Tomb Raider
5) Turok
4) Pac-Man
3) Mega Man
2) Dynasty Warriors
1) Sonic the Hedgehog

I saw a very similar list on another site not too long ago. I don't really agree with Star Fox and Mega Man being on this list. There hasn't been that many Star Fox games yet and all of them have been at least good games; just not all excellent. And I'd really like to see a Star Fox with on-line play.
Although there's been a multitude of Mega Man games released many of them have been excellent.

After the pleasant surprise that Tomb Raider Legends was I'm also not sure if the final verdict is out on Lara yet. I'll wait till the next game to decide that.
I'm also still waiting for an excellent 3D Sonic game to arrive. Team Sonic still isn't there, but Sonic Heroes and the Secret Rings have gotten them closer. Team Sonic just needs the right talent to do what Nintendo managed long ago with Mario.

And on a final note I've never been convinced that a 3D Street Fighter wouldn't work. I know it's blasphemy in many gaming circles to utter such a thought, but other 2D fighters have successfully made the transition. I think it's actually more plausible with SF because the characters personalities were quite strong. I think it would be too cool to throw a bad ass fighter based on Sony Chiba's original movie character into a new SF game.  icon_cool

Sorry frown  There are (were?) a handful of Live Arcade-type titles you can play with the Xbox, but it's completely separate from what's available for the 360

Right, I seem to remember a DVD you could purchase at xbox.com that had some of the XBLA games on it. I went searching for it again the other day but couldn't find it anywhere.

I always wondered if it would allow you to access the XBLA download site once it was started in your XBox, but I guess not.
7763  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Silly Question: Is it Possible to Access Live Arcade on an XBox? on: February 22, 2007, 11:44:57 PM
I saw this article in the news section and thought, now there's an arcade game I'd like to play.

Quote
With up to 16 players, Wing Commander Arena offers the largest multi-player melee experience to date on Xbox LIVE Arcade. The game is scheduled to go live worldwide on the Arcade service in Summer 2007.

http://www.gamingtrend.com/News/news.php?NewsID=8372

I only own a XBox and I've always just assumed that I couldn't access or play Live arcade games with my Live account. But I honestly have never really pursued this. Is it somehow possible to access Live arcade with just a XBox live account, or am I SOL until I get a 360 and a gold account?

Just wondering where GT members go for their Star Wars on-line action. I've played Jedi Academy (XBox) and BFII (XBox) on Live before. I just purchased Jedi Outcast for PC and I'm really enjoying it.

It got me wondering if there's any GT members playing either of the JKII PC games on-line on a regular basis or BFII PC for that matter. I'm really liking the improved graphics and the mouse keyboard combo and would like to try out some multi action.

I must be the only person that looks at these numbers and thinks they ALL did well. How are those numbers "not so good" for the 360? It's the oldest kid on the block and in the first month where there were no supply issues with PS3 shortages, it did very well.

Well...if you saw my earlier post in this thread you would have seen that I agree with this. In fact the market right now is currently supporting 4 consoles with good sales; just look at the PS2 numbers. If anything close to these monthly numbers are maintained for the rest of the year, all 3 consoles will end up with healthy sales in NA.

Some might look at the drop in 360 numbers as not good based on the fact that it's a given that it's sales will be low in 1 of the largest markets; Japan. But the 360  has the strongest announced software line up for 2007, so I'd really expect it sales to spike at least in NA for quite a few months. And with interest in the PS3 rumored to be high in Europe; it's sales potential is looking healthy too. Also, those PS2 numbers are going to eventually redistribute to the other 3 consoles. Probably not this year but very likely next year.

This doesn't prove that at all. Its only the very beginning of the current gen. We won't know if its true for a couple of years worth of sales, and subsequent financial statements from the companies(mainly Sony and MS).

Yes,  I agree it's good to be conservative and error on the side of caution and yes it's only the beginning of this gen. But honestly you don't need a freaking degree in mathematics to remove the PS2 from the equation -as it eventually will- and redistribute it's numbers to whatever way your console bias desires, to see that it still spells healthy numbers for all 3 systems.

I have both the PC and 360 version of FIFA 07.  The PC version doesn't have as much control lag as the 360 version.  It sounds like the Xbox version you have is closer to the PC version than 360.  Believe me, I'm not even exaggerating one little bit about the 360 version, literally it will execute actions 5 seconds after you hit it, absolutely terrible.

It's crazy that EA would branch develop the XBox with the PC version as opposed to the 360 version, but then again I wouldn't be surprised. Anyways I have a pre-owned copy of Winning Eleven 9 that I can get my hands on next week for real cheap, so I might just go with it. But in the mean while my play test evaluatons of FIFA 07 XBox vs PE WE 2007 PS2 continues....
7770  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Jan Sales Numbers - Wii Wins! on: February 21, 2007, 05:48:10 AM
Yes these are definitely good numbers, but not just for Nintendo. Even if you consider the 3rd place PS3's numbers, at just shy of a 1/4 million that still puts Sony on target to sell 3 million PS3's this year in NA alone!

If anything these numbers show that the video game market is strong enough now to easily support 3 consoles, something that just wasn't true of previous gen's; RIP DreamCast, TubroGFX, 3DO ... Then when you look at PS2 sales you can clearly see that we've got a market that's sustaining 4 consoles in a very healthy way.

I think the real question now is, what other manufacturer is going to enter the ring with the 4th console once the PS2's sailed into the sunset?

Yeah, I wouldn't wait for a brand-new SKU of the Xbox to come out and jump on the bandwagon then; it's just like buying the first-run of a new piece of hardware then.  The time to buy is just before a new SKU comes out, or even better, buy the old one after the new one is out.  That way it's battle-tested, you're getting the later runs of parts (with probably the lowest failure rates), and incremental improvements to boot (quieter optical drive, anyone?)

Hmm...fair enough, I have thought of that. But I must say, other than the fact that it's DD 5.1 output isn't compatible with my home theatre, I haven't had a single issue with my controller S series XBox and it's almost 4 years old.  thumbsup  And I do believe I purchased it just around the time when it was the new SKU on the block.

I just purchased the game about a month ago and haven't have any such lock ups. I do seem to recall that that section did take some time to load though. My PS2 is only about 7 months old so it's likely the same series as yours.
Interesting enought I had a similar problem with Crimson Skies on the XBox trying to load saved games; after 3 exchanges at EB I finally gave up. I then bought the game again about 1 1/2 years later and it loaded saves without a hitch?? Go figure!  retard

Came home with Crackdown... and my fourth 360 is crapping out. The graphics are glitching even on the dashboard now.

This is beyond the pale.

ON TO MY FIFTH

I THINK ITS TIME TO COMMENCE A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.

WTF! It's posts like these in this forum that are causing me to push my already delayed purchase of a 360 that much further into the future. It's becoming evident to me that M$ is shipping refurbished 360's to customer that have returned defective 360's and that these refurbished units haven't been properly repaired. So in a nutshell; M$ is demonstrating a complete lack of quality control!

I want to buy a 360 when Mass Effect is released, but I'm thinking I'll wait until the 360 v.2 is available. Which is exactly what I did with the original XBox; waited until the release of the Controller S series and avoided some of the initial issues. I'm also now sure I'll be buying the longest replacement warranty available and will plan on selling off my 360 before it expires. Then I'll just repurchase a new one.

Whoa. That's one positive review for a series that's been littered by absolute crap (short of the GBA/DS games) for years.

I actually enjoyed Sonic Heroes for the Cube quite a lot, can't comment about the PS2 & XBox versions because I never played them.  IMHO Heroes was by far the best, and the only decent, Sonic game on any of the last gen consoles; Although I wouldn't go so far to call it an excellent game.

But anyhow...it's good to hear that Secret Rings is sounding like Sega's finally hit all the bases for a 3D Sonic.

I'd just like to know what this all means for Live subscriptions for the original XBox since I currently don't own a 360. It did reduce in cost last year, so I'm thankful for that. But I'm definitley going to be pissed if M$ keeps asking me to pay after they make it free for Vista or the 360.  icon_evil

Tight control as in how responsive the players are to your control input (regardless of controller type).  The lack thereof in the 360 version of FIFA 07 totally killed the game for me (you see your players execute an action literally 5 seconds after you pressed the button).

OK skystride I'm following you now. I've noticed this a bit on the XBox version of FIFA 07.

What I've noticed that's more annoying are the odd times when a player receiving a pass freezes on the spot while the ball slowly rolls to them. Even more annoying; the receiving player seems to have a protective bubble around them which no opposing player can penetrate until the ball reaches them. It seems to be some built in compensation for when ball speed physics are off, but it just really disrupts the flow of the game.

I have noticed that button presses seem more natural and easier on the PS2 version of WE 2007 then from what I recall of WE 8 for XBox. I haven't rented WE 9 (XBox) yet so I haven't been able to make a more recent comparison. But I suspect it's really a feature of the dual-shock controller; more playtime will tell.

Things have been improving over the last while though, in that pricing for their DS titles has equalized with US prices. We'll have to wait and see if this remains true for their Wii titles once the prices drop.

I don't know what he said Nintendo told him, but ALL Nintendo consoles are fully warranted for a full year from date of purchase.
It may be different for the countries we live in Tebunker, I live in Canada and the GameCube most definitely only had a 90 day warranty. I'm sure of this because I inquired when I purchased mine and opted for a 2 year additional warranty as a result. In fact I believe this still might be true for the DS and the Wii; after registration you get an additional 120 days for the Wii.

Nintendo Canada runs separate operations from Nintendo US and apart from wimpier warranties I have other issues with them. The way in which they price fix games and have pricing that doesn't equate to US prices is really annoying; yes the CDN price is always higher. And yes by "equate" I do mean after the exchange rate has been factored in. They also have an agreement with Nintendo US to enforce this; i.e. until quite recently if you checked Nintendo Cube games priced below 49.99 on EB on-line you would have noticed the disclaimer "Only ships to US addresses". This policy isn't true for 3rd party games just Nintendo's own releases.

It's why when I'm on business in the US I always buy Nintendo games. As an example, about 2 years ago I was able to pick up MKDD and SSBM at for 29.99 US when the going fixed price in Canada was 49.99.

There are some advantages of the separate country operations when ordering on-line, as Nintendo Canada seems to have a bit more inventory even for Wii accessories.

The only bad experience I know of is the problem my brother in-law had with his GameCube. He bought it on the same day -Launch day 2001- and same city as I did but at a different store. less than 1 year later he started to receive the dreaded laser read error; a problem that occurred on some of the initial Cubes. Unfortunately he didn't purchase an extra replacement warranty from the store.

He contacted Nintendo, but because his Cube was no longer under warranty they wouldn't replace it; warranty was only 90 days. They told him they could fix it, but it would cost almost the price of a new GameCube. Needless to say he passed and instead just bought my nephew an XBox; which is what her really wanted anyways.

Personally I think Nintendo should have fixed it since it was a known issue with some of the 1st batch of Cubes, but this was the era when there previous dick head president was still in charge; sorry forgot his actual name but dick head will suffice. As is evidenced by the more recent issues with the DS Lite, Nintendo has made a policy change on this sort of thing.

Unfortunately it left a sour taste in my brother in-laws mouth and despite really liking the Wii he won't bring himself to buy one. A real shame since he'd previously bought the SNES and N64 and is still a fan of Nintendo games.

I never bought any Donkey Kong games for the Cube because they just didn't seem to have the magic of DKC and DK64; so this will be the 1st DK game my kids have played.

Now if Nintendo could just release DK64 for VC, I'd be in heaven!

Wow.  What bugs?  I've never encountered any at all after over 100 games played in Franchise mode, quick games, tournament and mini games.  I'm curious.

I only played the 360 version on our 360 at work since I only own an XBox. The bugs were multiplayer related and only occurred if you played on Live; system lockups and crashes. Many people were reporting this in the Take 2 forums when the game 1st released and I saw it for myself. I never heard whether or not they were fixed with a patch since my coworkers just moved on to NHL 07.

EA would benefit in that they'd have less competition for their sports series, thus are able to spend less, do less, and theoretically charge more for theirs.  They could spend less on marketing and development for any of their series' and know that they'd have no competition.

This is bad.  Very, very bad.

Agreed. It's easy to forget how much competition from the 2k series of games has helped lower the overall prices of sports titles.
Hell, in my city I was able to pick up NHL 2k7 on opening day for $20 and EA's own NHL title debuted at $35! That's a lot cheaper than the $60 of just 5 years ago.

Yup...that seems to be a problem for many sports games with a simulation focus.

I have friends that have encountered the same problem with the NHL 2k series. I've always been willing to do the slider tweaking dance, but if you don't know hockey well it can be a fairly intimidating task.

Now if we're talking hockey, for which I'm a much more serious fan, I've down just that opting to go with the more simulaton heavy 2k series for the last 4 years.

I've just rented WE 2007 (PS2) and FIFA 07 (XBox) so after a comparison I should have a better idea. I'm also trying to track down FIFA 07 for PS2. I've also never played a sports game on the PS2 so maybe control will be an influencing factor; I've always heard the dual shock was a better sports game controller.

The first two Monkey Ball games are a lot of fun, although I think that they were ported on to the PS2 and Xbox.

They weren't exactly ported, a new game called Super Monkey Ball Deluxe was created for both the XBox and PS2. IMHO this is the best version out of all the 1st 3. And even better, the XBox version runs widescreen in 480p and it's -Sit down just in case you pass out- backwardly compatible with the 360!  eek

So if you have an XBox or 360, I'd recommend that you pass on the gamecube versions and instead get Super Monkey Ball Dlx.

7798  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which to buy; Winning 11 or FIFA? on: February 16, 2007, 12:57:27 AM
I'm posting this in this form as opposed to the sports games form,  as I posted a similar reply to an existing thread there yesterday, but haven't received a response.

Before I go any further I should mention that I'm a casual football fan at best. My question is; am I better off getting WE 2007 for the PS2 or would WE 9 for the XBox be just a good choice?
I'm asking this with some sense of urgency as I can purchase WE 2007 in a local store for $35 up until tonight after which the sale ends.

 I had WE 8 for XBox and put quite a bit of time into it and enjoyed it, but without on-line play I eventually grew tired. I know I can find a pre-owned copy of WE 9 for less than the cost of WE 2007 (PS2).
I do  have concerns that the WE 9 user community on Live will drop off rapidly now that WE 2007 is out for the 360. Should I be concerned about this?

On another note, for a casual football fan like myself would FIFA 2007 (XBox or PS2) be just as good a choice?

I believe this is the same game that's called UFO Afterlife. It appears to have already been released in Europe and so far has been reviewed by 4 sites with an average score of 7.7/10. Eurogamer which I've found to be quite credible in the past gave it an 8.
