so,some of you are saying its good,but not in the same class as final fantasy...but is it safe to assume that this is a great game for being mistwalkers only second title?..and therfor,mistwalker being a company definetly looking like they could go on to do great things?
13922  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: the only review for lost via domus is... on: February 27, 2008, 05:24:45 PM
yeah picking it up on friday fro the 360,i reckon its gonna be a one time play through type game then trade in for something else,if i get through it quick enough i will trade it in for bully the following week,but i am  not rushing and i reckon that lost odyssey on the same day will take up most my time anyway

12 hrs though is quite good with todays games...Bioshock took me 8 and ahalf hrs,halo -7hrs(that was on normal though)cod4-6hrs normal...so 12 hrs isnt bad at all
13923  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Odyssey - new trailer and impressions on: February 26, 2008, 08:54:22 PM
here in the UK,HMV have announced that they are giving away 1000 ms points with pre-orders of lost odyssey...dont you just love it when shops announce this...3 DAYS BEFORE F***IN' RELEASE DAY!!!!


@farscry-yes the laughing scene in FFX,was terrible,corny and very embarrasing,i had to look away....i have heard a few people say about ffx being like LO,(or the other way round)still,with FFX being on one disc and LO on 4,...is it just the graphics that are better?.from trailers i have seen they look great,but not megatastic gears type great

I think it's interesting that the FF game LO most resembles is FFX which IIRC Sakaguchi had little to do with since he was too preoccupied trying to sink Square with The Spirits Within.

 icon_lol  How much did that movie lose, anyways?  I heard rumors of around $100 mil, which is staggering.

according to wiki,$137 million...it bankcrupted square pictures,but not before the animatrix double episode(if you have seen them,they are pretty cool)
13925  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MGS4 Release Date on: February 26, 2008, 08:11:24 PM
if it is coming to the 360 then i hope it gets announced before mgs4 is released on the ps3,because i would rather have it on the 360,and i will wait
13926  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Are game controllers too complicated? on: February 26, 2008, 05:03:56 PM
funny actually,because most 360 and PS3 games are pick up and play games,whereas most Wii games i have to first learn the controls and then get used to them...and keep having to do that when i keep coming back on to play
with resident evil 4 on the wii,every time i came back to it,i had to get the feel of it all over again,only then could i properly play
13927  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Things I've noticed now that I have a 360 and a PS3. on: February 25, 2008, 05:13:55 PM
stitchjones,pretty much said exactly how i am...the only difference is that my DVD drive is pretty quiet,i have seen a lot of people complain before about it,but it hasnt bothered me..this is still my launch machine as well.....but,take into account that i am hard of hearing,LOL

when it comes to gaming,my PS3 is solely for exclusive PS3 titles..and my Wii is there for back up if the 360 AND the PS3 should both fail at the same time......hopefully it wont come to that
13928  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (2/25) on: February 25, 2008, 05:08:06 PM
as i am in old Blighty,lost odyssey is to be released here this friday and i am gonna pick that up,and also the lost game..big fan of the show,but it also looks like a decent game(and its only 30.00...usually 39.99)..got the day of work so that means friday,saturday and sunday of gaming..yahoooo
13929  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Odyssey - new trailer and impressions on: February 24, 2008, 09:29:50 AM
there is new content up on the Asian marketplace(if you still have that Hong Kong account when we all downloaded stuff for Blue Dragon,its on there)

it has two items for free,one is 'the forgotton song'..which i think is a extra dream,you can pick it up after downloading at Virnos tavern in Uhra,and also you get 'Masters Secret Sript(weapon guard 2)

one snag though,these freebies will have to wait a week,its only available for GOLD users(hopefully it can become free by this friday when i pick my copy up)...didnt thid game come out at the beginning of december in Asia?..i dont want to wait that long for this content to be available on our marketplace

EDIT:someone on major nelsons site has posted that this is the stuff you get from the gamestop/EB pre-order,we have the same offer with GAME here in the UK...not sure if it really is the same,hopefully someone can verify that..think i will still download it from the marketplace as i havent pre-ordered the game anyway
13930  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Console Games You Were Surprised You Loved on: February 23, 2008, 11:38:29 PM
PGR4-hated the first lot,and still have no idea to this day what made me buy number 4...i had number 3 and hated that as well..but i bought number 4 and thought it was one of the best racers i had played for a long time

marvel ultiamte alliance-i love marvel comics,but this type of gameplay(slightly off ,top down look)doesnt really appeal to me at all..loved the game though,hope number 2 happens soon

halo 3-never was a big halo fan,number 1 was okay,number 2 was pretty dire...but as per usual,i got caught up in the hype..bought the game at a midnight opening(why i went to that i have no idea either)...but i really enjoyed the game,or at least enjoyed it a lot more than i thought i was going to like it....the take photos anywhere and save them to your pc thing was great as well

I'm glad to see the game hasn't totally bombed. It sold 103,000 in its first week. I'm sure that number will drop significantly by next week, but it is doing much better than Blue Dragon out of the gate.

the game isnt out in Europe yet,this coming friday,i for one will at least be adding an extra copy to the sales
13932  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fifa 08 is a REALLY good soccer game on: February 22, 2008, 11:48:16 PM
soccer?....oh,you mean football slywink  LOL,just kidding

i am a big soccer fan(manchester united)..but the only FIFA game i have ever liked is road to the world cup which was like 1998,all my mates love soccer games but most prefer PES(kind of like Coke or Pepsi,or Burger King or Maccy Ds)..but i like that even less..some of my friends only play soccer games..i have heard,however that this years FIFA is the best yet,and PES is suprisingly shit(although i may be getting that mixed up with the framerate problems  PES had on the PS3)

thinking on though,i cant really think of any sports games i do like,...hmm,NHL games i liked,but thats about it i think
13933  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Console games you want to love but can't on: February 22, 2008, 05:17:59 PM
i will go along with Warhawk as well.....i just cant begin to love it,even though its pretty much the kind of game that got me into online gaming(which was star wars battlefront...3rd person flying and ground fighting)

eternal sonata.....this really puzzles me,it has all the right things that i love in JRPGs,and i even dont mind the Chopin bio cutscenes and classical music stuff...but after one or two hrs,i got very bored with the game and in the end traded it...points still go to the title for looks and style

i never want to agree with Jack Thompson...ever !!!

so you agreed with him once and never want to again?

touche...

...hmm,well.he did say that counterstrike was a popular game with students and the like...i agreed with him on that one,LOL

i have another i just remembered....i never want to play a game where people talk to your character,but your character never says a thing...that bugs the shit outta me(Bioshock for one)
13935  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] More games to require FULL HD installs on: February 17, 2008, 01:52:49 AM
wasn't there a choice with devil may cry 4 on the PS3?...and i had just heard about lost planet being the same,perhaps it is a Capcom thing....what else they got coming?..resi evil 5..dead rising 2(if George A. Romero court case is settled,LOL)

i really hope microsoft dont start doing this

EDIT:oh and you only actually get 55gig with the 60gig PS3...just like you only get 13gig with the 20gig HDD on the 360,not sure what the 20gig is on the PS3
13936  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Things you never want to do again in a game on: February 17, 2008, 01:43:13 AM
i never want to play a game with Tingle in again!!!

i never want to play a game where the second half is going back through the first half with another character(*cough,cough,DMC4*)

i never want to do a timed mission,again!!

i never want to agree with Jack Thompson...ever !!!
13937  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 16, 2008, 01:27:57 PM
finished Human mode now,first 11 missions with automatic off and the last 9 missions with it on........

Spoiler for Hiden:
Dante rules,i love his humour..and some of the weapons he gets are great

mission 19 was a bit of a drag,rolling the dice again to get to the upper floor,and then having to do it 3-4 more times

so,are Nero and Dante related?...it doesnt mention anything,but they look alike-a little too much alike..and i know that Dante already has a twin brother,Virgil
13938  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Can Mistwalker Still Pay Off for Microsoft? on: February 16, 2008, 01:20:15 PM
any of the bottom 3 for me,i loved blue dragon(i think i am one of few who did unfortunately),and i think the 360 needs RPGs/JRPGs to get it out of the whole 'shooter games console only' thing

as for Japan and the Japanese,i personally think they have been hit too many times on the head when it comes to them not getting into the whole 360 thing.....they are my thoughts,at least

but,as said,its only two games,and even though i am still waiting for lost odyssey(another two weeks here in the UK)..they have in my eyes at least surpassed RARE for the 360..the real question should be,'Can RARE still pay off for Microsoft?'...for me Kameo and Perfect Dark were very average games...i did,however enjoy viva pinata,LOL
13939  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero: Aerosmith Edition on: February 16, 2008, 01:09:25 PM
i am not very good at guitar hero...but,i am a big fan of Aerosmith,went to see them here in manchester,UK in 1997(just before 'dont wanna miss a thing' was released i think),i have most of their stuff(one or two compilations havent made it into my collection,because i had all the songs)...so i will prolly pick this up...be good to see which version of 'walk this way' will be used...Aerosmiths?,or Aerosmiths with Run DMC?..or maybe both,they both have the cool guitar riff

...still,i hope they have an 'easy' setting,so i can at least see/hear/play the  majority of the songs..the easy setting would be for people like me,Aerosmith fans,but not so much Guitar hero fans,LOL
13940  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Wii sucks! on: February 14, 2008, 05:54:11 PM
360-70%(on the 360 every day,without fail,also use this as my DVD player)

PS3-15%(for games its mainly PS2,but i also use this for surfing internet since PC broke down..its a pain)

PSP-10%(play ps1 games on it at dinner in work that i have downloaded from PSN on the PS3)

Wii-5%(played mario galaxy last november..not done anything with it since

DS-currently used for alarm clock..final fantasy 3 was last game played,many moons ago

PC-broke,but dont play games on it anyway
13941  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 13, 2008, 10:03:34 PM
instead of pressing the commands...like ,B,B,X,Y,left stick up to do a super douper strike(i made that up)....in automatic mode you can just use the one button,say Y for your sword and the combos come automatically

and it makes the enemies fall easier because you are doing some great combos(but not really doing them)...its the equivalant of the auto fire switch that was on the quickshot 2 joysticks for the Amstrad/Spectrum/Commodore computers back in the 80s,lol
13942  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 13, 2008, 08:06:31 PM
son of a bitch....so,the donkey of the year award goes to...me

i just found automatic mode!!!!...(i wondered what you guys were going on about)....the game just got 10x easier!!!...mission 11 boss,was mega easy and i understand now what/how KePoW means(or at least i understand him better now)...for some reason i thought automatic had to do with the character selection during the game...but then i picked up the manuel,and found that it makes the combos easier..i had done the first 10 missions trying to do the combos myself...i have actually started to enjoy the game again now,LOL
13943  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Odyssey - new trailer and impressions on: February 13, 2008, 07:57:27 PM
not due until the 29th for UK....being European sucks pony dick
13944  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Wii sucks! on: February 13, 2008, 06:15:53 PM
my Wii gets turned on....(should i even go on?)..gets switched on,once or twice a month,VC was all i was playing at first interuppted by the odd Wii game(zelda,mario...resi 4...but the style of play got so old so very quickly,and i am no longer intersted in most games now..may look upon mario kart,but nothing else appeals to me thats on the horizon for the Wii

PS3,is getting stronger..i have been using the PS3 for internet because my PC broke...and its a real pain in the ass to use...but the games are definetly getting more interesting,i still buy 360 games over ps3 when it comes to multiformat...but i cant deny(me being an avid 360 fan)that i may be spending more time on the PS3 in future...but the Wii looks dead in teh water to me right now
13945  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 13, 2008, 06:06:18 PM
mission 11 is the one where you have to keep getting higher and higher(baby)...using the demon claw thing,and using lifts,while circling a big statue..with a lot of those grim reapers with big claws and freddy krueger type hat(i think they are related to the Mephisto) trying to stop you on the way(oh and those guards from the order that look a bit like angels)...i died and got sent to the beginning of the level again,and havent been back on yet...isnt actually hard right now,its just a case of doing it,but i am always dreading the next boss

13947  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pandemic working on a new LoTR game on: February 13, 2008, 05:26:33 PM
this may very well be either delayed big time or...maybe even cancelled(hopefully it wont come to that)...as the Tolkien estate has just taken New Line to court(peter jackson took new line to court December just gone for monies owing)...apparently new line ducked out of paying the Tolkien estate,they only got 34,000 up front...when new line made 30billion from the movies(Tolkien etstate are entitled to 7% of all profits),and as EA (or Pandemic now)are official LOTR movie game developers...i am guessing there maybe some hiccups ......that goes as well for the two Hobbit films that are due in 2010/2011

hopefully all can be sorted,and nothing will be delayed
13948  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 13, 2008, 05:19:08 PM
i must be ultra shit..LOL..i am on Human mode and i am finding it hard..hard enough to NOT even want to try demon mode...still on mission 11

Quote from: Ridah on February 12, 2008, 05:10:29 AM

Lame, most of it was footage of CGI cutscenes. I wonder if showing in-game footage would deter people from buying the game because of the framerate hiccups.

i heard the framerate hiccups had been seen to since the Japanese release back at the beginning of December?

and yeah i downloaded the trailer last night from xbox live and thought so-so at first...but watched it again for that big meteor(?)hitting the battleground...and suddenly i was really liking the music and the footage going together
13950  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 12, 2008, 05:14:32 PM
i also went back to the start thinking the opera house was the headquarters,then remembering the waterfall,but completely forgetting where it was..took me another 30 minutes going round in circles in the castle..until i finally stumbled across the waterfall entrance

mission11 now...its funny but i am having a really bad time with all the bosses,but it isnt until i nearly beat them that i finally see a patern in their attacks and figure out a easy way of killing them

Spoiler for Hiden:
like when fighting Dante..he was a bitch,until i realised that i can shoot at him(which makes him shoot at me..not hurting me though).and we begin to walk to each other,when really close i just swoop him with my sword and get a couple of good hits in,and repeat...but finding that out took a while

i am not liking how expensive the health power ups are.....i can usually buy one or two before i am broke....even worse are the abilities and the proud souls
13951  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Odyssey TV commercial on: February 11, 2008, 05:42:40 PM
thats my next purchase...looking forward to it...also on the same day is Lost(no,not Lost odyssey..just 'Lost' the video game)..so i am getting that as well

13952  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 11, 2008, 05:25:08 PM
yeah here in the UK,the PS3 version is usual price(44.99)..wheras 360 games are usually (39.99)..but devil may cry is cheaper even still by being 34.99..some places are advertising 30

i am also in human/coward mode...and i am on mission 8 or 9 and having a hard time with a boss
Spoiler for Hiden:
kyrie's brother,credo...nearly at headquarters,i can get his health quite low,but then he goes superpissed at me and i can't even touch him again

and yeah the saving is pretty crap,as usual...you save inbetween a level,and when you come to reload,you are at the beginning of the level....so if you save everytime you finish a level like i do,there is no point even having a mid level save option

EDIT:oh and the price difference is usually always like that with ps3 games and 360 games...2 reasons,the ps3 is newer(even more so here in europe),and i presumed it was because of BLU-RAY...........BLU-RAY films cost more than DVD films here as well,so thats why i thought the same with games
13953  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 10, 2008, 02:19:10 AM
i was thinking more installing and then taking the game back(but i knew you would have to keep the disc in,just like FF11 on the 360..even though there was codes for that)...but just for a second or two shorter for loading times i dont see the big need...i usually reach for the coke bottle during loading times anyway

i played the demo on the PS3,and it looked exactly the same as the 360 one.....so 10 more is not justified if you ask me for ther PS3 version(360 version=35,PS3 version=45)....just my opinion
13954  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 10, 2008, 01:51:12 AM
i died during secret mission 2 and it  makes you go through all the proper mission again...that was annoying,as the location of secret mission 2 was near the end of the regular mission

the achievements for the 360 are some of the lamest i have seen,and not very varied...just mainly complete the game in this mode,complete in that mode,there are a few 'collect 100,000 red orbs' type etc,but not many

how is the loading on the ps3 after you install it?,Kotaku said it only shaves about a second for each load...is that true?,and i am guessing you still need the disc in the PS3 to play it even though it is installed...right?
13955  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: devil may cry 4 impressions on: February 09, 2008, 06:13:46 PM
i bought the game today,but i also bought DMC 2 to complete my collection and i started to play DMC1 today,i havent even put number 4 in my 360 yet,as i wanted to play through the first lot to get the whole story,but no doubt i will end up just playing away with DMC4 and treating the first lot as prequels
13956  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect DLC announced on: February 07, 2008, 05:32:06 PM
i have already played it,finished it,swapped it......but,i will be getting the DLC,because one day when my funds are better i plan on buying the game again..and 400 points for 90 minutes is a pretty good deal
13957  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox Originals - New additions to the lineup on: February 06, 2008, 09:05:52 AM
good to see that it is ninja gaiden black and not just ninja gaiden(unlike Fable,not being the lost chapters)....i downloaded farenheit(indigo prophecy),fable(thinking it would be the lost chapters,oh well) and burnout 3(which i played more on than paradise)...when compared to the arcade games i think the price is right(1200 for xbox originals and usually 800 for arcade games)...but that just means that the arcade games are also overpriced

the line up for these are pretty cool,when added to the list of arcade games and compare them to the Wii VC,it doesnt look to shabby,hopefully PSN store will catch up as well
13958  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone here actually complete Indigo Prophecy? on: February 04, 2008, 05:12:36 PM
WTF?,.....i just finished it yesterday(Indigo Prophecy i mean)...thats wierd,anyway,i had completed it ages ago when the game was first released,and then yesterday after i got it from xbox LIVE(originals)download...here in the UK,its called Farenheit

i loved the game,but yeah the ending did seem a bit ..meh...but at least we got the sex scene and the naked lady dancing extra biggrin(i bought that at the end of the game from the main menu...i thought they were gonna cut that out,but they didnt

oh and i also think it still looks pretty good for an xbox 1/PS2 game
13959  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How much do demos factor in your purchase? on: January 27, 2008, 04:31:15 PM
i really have no real answer for this....i was quite interested in turning point until i played that demo...now i have no interest whatsoever...but i also was interested in blue dragon,then the demo came and i didnt like it,but still bought the game and glad i did

for me i think the demo is good to have,but not always making me change or make up my mind

and the devil may cry demo,didnt seem that short to me,10 minutes on one level and whatever it is on the other one,there have been plenty of shorter demos......blacksite(both of them)for one(or two)
13960  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Devil May Cry 4 Demo on: January 26, 2008, 02:07:44 PM
i downloaded the demo last night of PSN(US store) and there is no difference to that and the 360 version,not that i could tell anyway...both looked great
