13401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 controller redesign on: August 20, 2008, 04:31:57 PM
when i first read this i screamed,i love the 360 controller...but if you could change one thing,what would it be??


thats right,the D-Pad,well apparently,a new design has been spotted of the 360 controller,and it has a new D-pad


http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=195683


Quote
slightly redesigned Xbox 360 controller has been spotted on the show floor of the Leipzig Games Convention, sporting a new, more responsive d-pad.


While aesthetically identical to the previous Xbox 360 controller model (apart from being green in colour), our man on the floor reports that the d-pad on the new one is massively improved, sporting a full eight-way directional input as opposed to the previous's four.

The coloured pad is on demo booths playing Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, which we're told benefits greatly from the better d-pad.

This slight redesign should also work wonders with beat-em-ups such as Street Fighter IV and Xbox Live Arcade titles, which have been suffering badly with the current 360 controller's dodgy directional pad.

Our man in Germany has snapped some pics of the new pad and we'll have them on the internet for you shortly...



hopefully this will improve games like super puzzle fighter,and tetris

13402  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 160 gig on its way/PSP the 3rd also on: August 20, 2008, 04:20:49 PM
games convention 08

a new PS3 160gig model will be shipping to Europe this Fall(even though we dont actually use the term 'Fall')

and it will be priced at 499 euros with 70euros worth of DLC <<<i have no idea how much euro is compared to the Pound/Dollar
no mention of BC though
http://kotaku.com/5039419/playstation-3-160gb-model-coming-to-europe



and also,a new PSP (which i would imagine would piss off people who just bought the new PSP slim/lite)is also on its way

new brighter LCD screen
built in microphone
skype out of the box

again only mentions Europe,but the day America dont get something that Europe do will be the day i rollerskate naked to work

I was unimpressed with the whole idea when I first heard about the Pub Games, but then I remembered that I actually liked the game in KOTOR (pazak? something like that, I think.)

Since I know I'll be getting the game, I may as well pre-order it and get the Pub Games for free.  I'll have to force myself to play them if I think they are lame, but I can't let Metallicorphan enter the game with millions of gold, and me penniless!   icon_twisted

its okay,i will lend you some money(if you dance for me...or there maybe a time when i want you to visit my game and kill my family if they start to bug me..mwahahahahah) icon_twisted icon_twisted
13406  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: If you really like a game, HOW do you play it? on: August 19, 2008, 09:20:34 PM
is this 'cos i called you crazy for going after everything in FF12 myto?



i put the middle-ish option 'dont go nuts'

but it really depends on the game and how i am feeling at the time,i remember FF9 i pretty much did everything(which i am replaying now)
FF7 i WANTED to do everything but i remember at the time that breeding Black chocobos(or was it gold)just wouldnt happen for me,so i could never collect 'Knights of the round' summon(i also didn't defeat Ruby Weapon in the desert)

last weekend i decided to go back on Bully for the 360,and low and behold i got 100% from it(it helped that i actually got a reward at the end by getting an achievement)

Fable II i think i am gonna book a week off work and try and get everything done (prolly not in that week,but the time off will help)


i just got GTA4 back of my sister to go for the 100%....but i just cant be arsed going after all those flying rats

Kingdom hearts - f**k that gummi ship,waste of time IMO..so i didnt do anything with it(rest of the game was genius though)

Oblivion-i have done pretty much everything but start again with another character(one day i will,the game was good enough for another 100 hr playthru)

Zelda-Majoras mask---i am very proud that i did everything in that game,got all masks and everything..i think i did everything in wind waker,links awakening and ocarina as well(twilight princess i was missing a heart)

Pirates of the carribean...i think i had that for the xbox1,and hated it..was it really that good?(we are talking about the one without Jack sparrow right?)


so er,yeah..i am in the middle
13407  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Preview] Hands-On with Fable II on: August 19, 2008, 05:54:11 PM
i have been playing Fable as a xbl original download and the noise it makes scares my cat!!!!.....BUZZZ!!!!!

turned my 360 on today to continue playing and it crashed as it was loading it...(so went back to final fantasy 9)

didnt notice all this first time i played it though when i first downloaded it


i havent noticed anything else bad yet though...and i heard the disc versions are fine(wish i picked up lost chapters)...maybe Lionhead could remake Fable 1 someday
13408  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Preview] Hands-On with Fable II on: August 19, 2008, 07:47:35 AM
nice preview....gettin' me excited...and yup,i like Animals as well so i would be beating up on that dog bully,and then i will beat him some more...what the heck,i may even waste a few hours beating up on him


LOL,Bowerstone..thats where i am now!!!....but in the original game.Its a pretty small town in the original,not included the castle area(and it has docks as well)so it will be interesting to see how its grown if the game is set 500 years later..wonder if i can still get a haircut from that saucy lady

so,will Fable III be set another 500 years in the future?,when Bowerstone/Albion is nothing but a multistory car park and shopping mall??....and maybe you will have a pet Aibo for a companion,LOL

Still, the story was interesting in a conspiracy theory kind of way.  I'm still not sure what the "turns the MGS universe on its head" thing was that ATB keeps mentioning was.


Spoiler for Hiden:
not sure about ATB,but for me it was the fact that you, the player started to see sense in why Big Boss became who he was,he has always been known as the bad guy,since Solid Snake killed him back in the days of Metal Gear on the NES...but you could see why he became that way,maybe even agreeing(as The Boss was pretty much used,but she still did her duty for her country..and her country will continue to associate her as a terrorist,when really she was a hero) with him to a certain point.....the ending for me,really sent a shiver down my spine,when EVA was reciting on the tape recorder why The Boss did what she did...all through the game(like breaking Snakes arm and throwing him over the bridge instead of outright killing him etc etc....it did turn a lot around,at least for me anyway

Spoiler for Hiden:
i think there was something in the news last year about them finding a secret part of the bible(I myself am not into religion at all)or a part of the Bible that was kept hidden,and in it it explained why Judas did what he did to Jesus,Jesus gave him this secret mission to do,Judas full well knowing that he was going to go down as the worlds most hated traitor..but it was Jesus' discission to choose Judas as he was his best Disciple...or something like....if you believe all that,and Judas excepted without delay

Worthplaying has some screenshots.

damn, looks cool.  The Joker looks kind of off though.

He looks a little too much like the Nicholson Joker, IMO.  I don't care for that look.



that's what it is-  heck, he even has Jack's receding hairline.  Maybe, after the success of the Dark Knight, they'll go back and tweak the model a bit.


i like that Joker,he looks like a mix from Nicholson,and the graphic novels(like Cks picture above)....anyway,i reckon THAT Joker is better than THIS joker from the PS3 MMO DC universe

remember when i told you that the demo was coming out a few thursdays away..(you should do,you are in the thread!!)


well its THIS thursday(21st August)

LucasArts has confirmed that a playable demo for its upcoming Star Wars game will be unleashed on August 21 for both PS3 and 360.

We've been told that the demo gives players "a taste of one of the early levels in the game: the TIE Fighter Construction Facility, under siege by a Jedi General named Rahm Kota.

"The Secret Apprentice has been sent by Darth Vader to hunt down and destroy the General, but is also told that, in order to remain a secret, he is to leave no witnesses."

Also included in the demo is a tutorial intended to teach players how to use their Force Grip power (snigger). So everything that was pretty much expected then.

meh..i loved it,i still have a lot of songs i need to unlock

the only thing i was pissed off about was the fact that they left out a lot of great tracks(Janies got a gun,Dude looks like a lady,Amazin', Crazy etc)

and there was quite a few non-Aerosmith songs in there.....'all the young duuuudees,carrry the neeeewwws'

it sold 567,000 copies in its first week...which isnt bad,but i am guessing as it isnt in the July NPD,i reckon it didnt sell many more,or people who wanted it got it in the first week(like me)

but as Myto said in her reply,it doesnt suprise me,playing Final fantasy 11,although enjoyed it we did,we still felt that Squeenix hated us!!,LOL
13424  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Fable II: Pub Games Impressions on: August 14, 2008, 04:29:43 PM
yeah i got these last night,unfortunately the pre-order offer thing isnt available in my part of the world(some third world country they obviously havent heard off,even though they made the full game here,LOL)..so i had to pay the 800 points

only got to play about for an hour or so

Fortunes Tower-seems to be the one i am most addicted to..although i have adjusted my self to just banking the money as soon as i am have made profit,as otherwise i just run out of dosh


Keystone-is a bit random really,no real skill needed(apart from where to place yer bets),typical Casino style

Spinnerbox-seems to be decent,but again i can't really see any skill..apart from just pressing A(or whatever the button was)...this one will prolly be the least played


i have yet to play in a tourney,prolly get to that tonight

i think perhaps 400points would of been better pricing,although i have heard you can unlock new games,not sure if that means completely new games or what

these pub games are also in the Fable 2 games as well,obviously when you visit a pub....but i doubt there would be any refund or money off the full release

played a ton of MGS2 today...just beat Fatman and am loving the game so far.  as expected, the graphics are much improved over MGS1, and the smoothing done by the PS3 makes everything look phenomenal for a PS2 game.  combine that with smoother controls and another interesting story, and it's a great follow-up so far.  my only complaint so far is that the cutscenes are pretty lengthy at times, but most are done well enough that it can be forgiven.  exceedingly long codec conversations are still annoying though...



as said the Gamecube version of MGS1 uses the MGS2 engine

and yup,i reckon MGS2 is the worse for lengthy cutscenes and codec chat

definetly gonna get this,loved the first(it could of looked a bit better though on the 360)..it will be interesting to play this,and also be interesting if they make a third part,as the third film wasn't everyones favourite threequel...but then again,like the firt they dont have to stick to the storyline so much

charming,thats the last time i let you follow me anywhere!!!! icon_biggrin


sequels,sequels...i would like to see a sequel to that Lucasarts game i loved ...funny as hell...can't remember what it was called..but yeah that one(it wasnt sam and max,indiana jones,star wars,monkey island or grim fandango...it WAS on the xbox 1,and had a guy who couldnt see so well at the beginning cut scene...as i said it was funny as hell)

EDIT:Armed and Dangerous...thats what it was called,great game


and concerning midtown madness 3,it would be good that microsoft actually make it backwards compatible on the 360 before making a sequel(or do both)

counter strike current gen console version

star wars galaxies 2..done right better this time


and the one current gen sequel that i have been waiting for ,and IMO is needed is (again another Lucasarts game)..

star wars battlefront 3!!!

oh yeah i remember hearing about that slimmer 360 ...didnt hear anything else though,on the inside it prolly needs a redux(and to finally put the RRoD to bed),but on the outside i think its fine....not sure what group MS would be targeting if they did do a slimmer 360,its already pretty cheap now,and it may not be as compact as the Wii,but it is still smaller/slimmer than the PS3


as for the noise of the 360 disc drive has never been a concern for me,the 360 isn't right next to me,and any noise it does make the TV usually drowns it out icon_smile
