for those who are getting the 360 version,some people have been reporting that if you clear your cache,then there will be no problems with pop up as much...whether it works or not..i dont know,but i have done it anyway,(i remember Oblivion)
to clear cache on xbox 360:incase you dont know...from xbox.com forums
go to the system blade and press select memory..press Y on the HDD symbol and then press X,X,left bumper,right bumper,X,X
once you do this,a message will appear asking:do you want to perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage devices?performing this function will also clear any software updates
you will have to re-download any game updates that are needed but no system updates-its useful if you have tonnes of games on your HDD
interesting parts from the Kotaku..i had to write them down to copy them as i dont have copy and paste on this PS3 browser
'Xbox360 version seemed capable of achieving smoother framerate peaking higher in certain circumstances,such as in confined spaces or during light traffic,but both versions seemed to regularly run at a similar clip'
'the 360 can suffer from some very noticable texture loading as things like trees,vehicles and building signs will regularly pop in as one tools around town,...and the PS3 version isnt entirely immune from it,but it isnt a game killing problem'
i think the simple matter is,that both versions will be the nuts
yeah unfortunately none near me,i heard south wales,yorkshire and cambridge are a few places...while i am in Manchester and my local GAME shop are sick of me phoning them LOL
as for those achievements,i dont like the one ....complete all story missions under 30 hrs...i like to take my time when doing thses games,so thats one i wont be getting
i heard Ricky Gervais is one of the stand up comedians you can go see (the Boss from the UK version of The office)..i have a few stand up DVDs of his,and he is quite funny on stage,so looking forward to going see that show...anyone want to come see the show with me over LIVE?,LOL
the dreams were great,and although i wouldnt of thought it,it was a nice change to sit back and have a little read for 5 minutes and so,while having a rest from the main game
if they did make a sequel to this,it baffles me how they will do it-i cant see it being the same characters because it would have to have the same premise about 1000years old etc,so what?,new characters with the same problems?,i cant see that working really,unless they named it something totally different from 'Lost Odyssey'
well,just over 30 hrs for me(UK midnight release)..and then i have 7 days off work..but this tuesday i have to wait in(downstairs,away from my other 360) for the DLH dude to come and pick up my first 3 red ringer 360 which i had since launch...but hell,it lasted longer than my PS3(which i bought last July),which went tits up after the last update (i currently have my sisters 360,which is really mine that i borrowed her until i get my old one back)
i also have to contact my PC company to get a man out to fix the two day old PC which crapped out on me as well-then there is the second leg of the champions league match between Manchester United and Barcelona football match(soccer for you guys)
so,although i will be playing on the game tuesday,it will really be wednesday that i can really sink my teeth into it
sure the ps3 version will have slightly better graphics(which i still dont see can be such a major difference)and no pop ups<<i heard this only can only be seen on the 360 on a helicoptor mission
but playing games on the sixaxix just doesnt feel right anymore for me,instead of being comfortable holding the pad and it being natural for my thumbs on the sticks,with the ps3 controller it feels as though i have to be more alert and precise with those sticks
achievements will be fun to have as well,and i am hoping that the incar radios can have your own music again from your HDD like the xbox 1 versions of the GTA games
wow,just over 72 hrs until i buy the game...for once in my life,i actually want a weekend to hurry up and be over....another thought,i am actually looking forward to a monday<<<<that just dont seem right
i actually just got onto a server and have been playing for the last 30 or so minutes...hated it,very much so
its so slow and Turtle you are right about the controls,especially switching to grenade etc
for some reason after i die for the first time in a game i respawn and then die again straight away,not sure whats going on there,also i had to aim and then fire on the enemy for a looong time until he actually died as well,i am talking 4-5 seconds of constant shooting and hitting him...maybe i have missed something i dunno,but that was me hitting him in the head as well
i liked the character custom screen...but that was about it for the whole experience,and maybe the part where you have to waggle the left stick if you get stunned to be awake again(you waggle the infamous 'MGS above head stars' away)..but i can see that becomeing very tiresome
graphics were nice,not wow though
if this is a seperate purchase like rumoured,i definetly wont be buying it
jesus christ on a moped,this has been nothing but a pain
downloaded the 'beta' from psn....that took 3 hrs,the patch took another 3-4 hrs,then the second patch took another hour,then going to the konami site to create a 'konami ID' and 'Game ID'...took another 20-30 minutes,because all my ideas for names were taken..then when i got that sorted out and confirmed the email thing,the servers were full because of traffick(no shit sherlock)
i have been in a few beta's and this has been worse than siging up for final fantasy 11!!,seriously konami need to pony up with decent servers for one thing to let the people play and let them download the patches faster......and why cant we just use our damn PSN account????
and i am still not sure if this bluetooth headset(which is really an earpiece,who the fuck named it a headset?)works!!
sorry,as you can see...i am pissed!!!!
the gameplay trailer looked a bit shit anyway,looked stupid and jerky,LOL

i liked coopasonics city bus race idea
That was actually wonderpug, I just highlighted it.
Oh, and TDU had motorcycle too!
ahh,then sorry wonderpug
and yeah coopasonic,i forgot about the motorcycles in TDU
i suppose you could hold your own olympics running and swimming races,archery(or shooting targets),cycling,throwing(javelin)...or you could set a guy on fire for the olympic torch and everyone else could be Tibet protesters and try and put him out!!...no offense to ..er ,everyone
i liked coopasonics city bus race idea,then kinda got thinking about other stuff that free roam would be good for...speedboat racing as well,or bikes....or maybe with all 16 players,find a deserted place and have our very own fight club!!!,two players in,no weapons,last man standing wins the round possibilities are pretty much endless,reminds me of test drive unlimited,but because you could only be in a car,it kinda became...limited
you may of seen some of these pictures in the trailers,but here you can look at all the city details in the background
Spoiler for Hiden:
even has dirt on the windscreen
'The good people of Liberty City go about their business with a sense of purpose you won't have seen before in the series. They don't just shuffle aimlessly, but all seem to be doing something, whether it's pausing for a smoke, sweeping the street, chatting on the phone, or loitering with intent in a shady alleyway. The city feels like a living, breathing place rather than being populated by zombie passers-by.'
Vinegar Strokes poster,LOL
re-enact 'Falling Down',LOL
snipers...damn,thats Team Deathmatch ruined then,
wonder if this is in the boat that we saw in the first GTA4 trailer
i have an O2 headset,and i hate it...not even sure it works,as whenever i am online with the PS3,its not very often that people even talk,a USB headset would prolly be better,i personally would love a XBOX live type headset that plugs into the PS3 controller,so i speak using this O2 headset,and no one ever answers
there is a new SOCOM game coming soon(actually i think its either Autumn/Fall or August),i am hoping that they will have a decent headset with the game like they usually do
i will actually be buying the game in 1 week,3hrs and 46 minutes...midnight opening
that TV commercail trailer is now up on xbox live marketplace(or at least it is in the UK marketplace),i downloaded it and noticed a lot more things going on in the background that i didnt notice when i caught it on TV...got me a little bit more excited for it
i think i was about 60 or so hrs when i finished Lost Odyssey,great game but as Jersoc said disc 4 has a lot of side quests...getting ultimate weapons for instance for your team,and some optional boss fights have a little more story about certain characters,if you are into that kind of thing
havent heard anything yet about a sequel,but i would definetly buy it on day one...however i think Mistwalkers next game is called 'Cry On'
i just typed into google 'ps3 install 85minutes GTA4'...it came up with a few sites that have this,it all seems to come from a site(or so they are saying)called sarcasticgamer.com...and they think that this site is telling lies(there is another site similar..called sonydefenceforce or something like that)...so,yup,right now i am calling BS
i read the other day that(and bare with me for this,as i think its bullshit)..that the PS3 version will require you to install GTA4 which will take 85 minutes...that part wouldnt suprise me,but then it went on to say that it takes up 10gig...now,i know ps3 is blu-ray,but its the same as the 360 version..so,can you even get 10 gig on a DVD?
i also 'heard' that the only difference between the ps3 and 360 version is the 360 has a bit of pop up on the horizon when flying a helicoptor..and because the ps3's version is from the HDD you dont get that
PS3 has certainly grown over the last few months...but the games that have come out for it,aren't day one must buys for me..not compared to games on the 360 ..lost odyssey,Fable 2,too human(actually i am still in two minds over too human)
and their pretty boring XMB,friends list etc is ...er,pretty boring
BUT...of course we have the next few months for things to change,HOME,new store outlook(it damn needs it),MGS4,LBP(<<which i couldnt give a frogs ass about)...and final fantasy 13 in 2009(or 2010) and this falls update for GTP(damage)..thats about all i can think off...anything else?
really?,i have just come off LIVE,and it seemed fine
anyway,you guys had better get a T-Shirt saying 'I'm with stupid'..because i was playing team deathmatch for 3 hrs waiting for the new maps to blend in with the current ones..3HRS!!....i didnt know there was a seperate veriaty map pack team deathmatch i had to select,this selection lets you play team deathmatch with the new maps,and no other maps
apparently,they are to be released to the other gameplay types over the next week or so...kinda like try them,get used to them and then play seriously when they are with the other maps
i just downloaded them 440ish MB..took 15 minutes,so that wasnt bad,havent played them online yet,but set up a system link match on my own and investigated the maps....killhouse looks like its gonna be another wetwork/showdown type map i.e not what i like...but the other 3 maps look great,and it was cool walking about chinatown(carentan)...looking forward to playing online with them in a while
yeah i was playing on it last night,good table..but for some reason the ball this time seems to really like going straight down the middle of the table,totally missing my flippers and making me lose a life....more so it feels than the other tables,perhaps i am just shit outta luck!!!
the microsoft breakfast and bullets thing(the bitbag i think)said that the exclusive 360 DLC will be a lot bigger than people think,they went on to say that vice city and san andreas were basically expansions of GTA3..we should think of the DLC like that...if true,its gonna be a bitch downloading that when everyone else will be...but definetly gonna get the DLC
as for the actual Vanilla game,we have a midnight opening here in the UK...so,we might actually get it(officially)before you guys..although only by a few hours,LOL
bah i cant see it,as i need to upgrade my player,becasue i am on the PS3...is it really a good table or am i falling for an April fool joke?....i love pinball fx,one of the best pinball games out there
for xbl,as long as i can access new stuff,or all games then i am fine with whatever it looks like...PSN however was in dire need of an improvement,not in how it looks but in access to content,thankfully from these screens it looks like it will be a BIG improvevement
LOL<i just found out that this game is due in the UK on 20th June(yes,its true,living in this country is a joke)...maybe to attempt to soften the blow,we are getting the special edition version for £5 cheaper than usual PSP games(usually £30..FF7CC-£24.99)
with the special edition we get 'the art of'...which for me,being a FF fan i am is pretty damn nice...just a shame i have to wait another 3 months
(new COD4 maps and GTA4 should fill the gap nicely though)
off topic question: **was it star wars that started this 'the art of' series?,its just that i have the art of star wars from yesteryear..always been meaning to get empire and jedi as i have episodes 1-3 arts of as well
i just finished ff7 for the second time late last year,and i have been looking forward to this for a while.....however,i am in the UK,so i am expecting this to hit here around christmas time(you guess the year),but when it does come here,i will definetly be picking it up
PSP games for me are far and few between so it will be nice to get playing on there,however,i wonder with the success,if this game would end up hitting ps2 sometime just like silent hill origins is to(which stopped me buying the PSP version)
just finished the game..the end...took a lot longer then i thought it would and the end cut scene was ,well,pretty so-so,but i enjoyed the game a lot and if there is a sequel,it will definetly be a day one purchase for me
