11441  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Help with my HDTV and PS3 resolution and settings on: March 25, 2008, 06:45:52 AM
An upscaled DVD is still not really 1080p source, so it should not look as good as a Blu-Ray disc will.

I have my PS3 set to output to 1080p in settings, but if a game does not support that (say 720p) max, the PS3 just outputs to whatever the highest level that the game displays in.  You should not have to do any manual switching of modes when you play games.

One of my absolute favs.  I played through it on the PC when it first came out, then again on my 360 to see it on the big screen.

You know what's weird?  I can never roleplay an evil character, because I start getting pangs of conscience.  I always name my first character "Lee" and make him look like me.  So I guess I pick myself.

A lot of times I have the same problem.  I usually have to play the goody-two-shoes.

Yep I always play the role of light side Jedi.
11450  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Who is your in game character? on: March 24, 2008, 09:10:33 PM
Mostly a char that represents me.  In the case of some games like Mass Effect, I use the default.  In Zelda, I name my character Link.

In related news for you Wii owners, Rock band is coming on June 22.  However, no online DLC plans at this time.  Ouch to you!

Well Sony seems to have contacted Kotaku and said this is NOT coming in 2.20 after all.

11455  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Condemned 2 impressions on: March 24, 2008, 07:18:49 PM
I downloaded the demo for the PS3 and I was not impressed at all.  I never played the first game, so this was my intro to the series.  I've been a fan of Monolith games in the past, but this demo was bad.  Clunky movement, awkward weapon swinging.  Little oil gremlins that would attack me before my stupid wrench would swing.  Blech.

That's been my EXACT same experience.  Sometimes I wonder if Kevin and I are the same person.
gellar

I know Kevin Grey. Kevin Grey's a friend of mine.  And you, Gellar, are no Kevin Grey.

Kevin Grey is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. The mere fact that you would admit to knowing Kevin Grey positively establishes the fact that you are not the REAL ATB.

The OP should ignore this charlatan.

my personal belief is that "kevin grey" is itself a bit of misdirection at us earthbound types.  i think "kevin" is only the closest sounding english name to the syllables we humans can perceive, and that it is only 40% of the full name.  dogs could probably hear ~80%, although they wouldn't be able to understand it. 

i think "grey" is his attempt at dry humor at our expense.  his bit of hiding in plain sight, if you will. 





or it could be the 4 hours of broken sleep talking.  not sure really.

Not to mention one of the pictures has Snake Eyes holding a gun.  I don't remember much about the cartoon, but I don't remember Snake Eyes ever using a gun.

He sure did.  He came with an Uzi, IIRC.

EDIT for pic:

PCworld is reporting that the 2.20 firmware will let you dl a SD copy of blu ray movies to your PSP, for those who have both.

Blu-Ray's are a noticable upgrade in visual quality (for most movies with a good transfer anyway).

I wonder if people who say they can't notice a difference are renting blu-ray discs with bad transfers.  I was extremely disappointed with the blu-ray Terminator 2 I rented, as it was hardly improved from the DVD version I already own.

I've noticed that on almost all blu-rays I've watched, there's always a couple scenes that are bad transfers.  Some parts look awesome and some parts look like crap.

OMGHI2U BOSTON SONG PAX! SO IN.

Since you've been out of the thread for a while, have you seen the new in-game music store yet?

I would love to see a DLC sales chart from Harmonix to see the sales spike after the store release.  I know I spent at least $20 after going through the song previews with my wife.

Ha, I ended up buying a song through the store that I had overlooked before.

Unless Final Fantasy VII:  Crisis Core, Warrior Oroochi (PSP), or Optoona surprise me, I don't think I'm buying anything this week.

Is Boston the confirmed RB content for this week?

Yeah the Boston 6-pack.

This is awesome.  Some kid breaks into a house and steals a halo edition 360.  He then sends a ransom voicemail, through live AND from his personal Live! account, to the victim when they try and recover their account on a new 360.  The victim blogs about this and it get's digged.  Internet justice ensues.

PS3.  The system is awesome.  The interface is slick.  The best game of all time is on the system (Uncharted).  It's a blu-ray player.

I also don't like portable systems.

Why is everyone so upset if you don't like the Boston pack?  Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Depending on if you put down your credit card down you can get them to ship you a set before you send yours back.  I think it took 2 days to get my replacement set going that route.  Then you ship your broken set back and they never charge you for anything.

Well this movie started off entertaining, but oh man did it end up bad.  The girl is smoking hot though.  A nice preview for the coming Bond movie, where she has a part.

I'm not too excited about the Boston 6-pack either.  I might just grab 1 or 2 of them individually.
