14841  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy VIII-replay on: August 05, 2007, 04:55:13 PM
okay,as i had predicted(arent i just nostradamus)after i finished FF7 yesterday,i have decided that i will play FF8

for a start,i am taking a bit of a chance,really,i am playing it on my PS3,not really knowing if there are any major bugs further up into the game(but if its better than majoras mask on the compilation disc for gamecube,i should be fine)

second,this is the one that i have never finished,out of the original playstation1 final fantasy trilogy(7,8 and 9)...i got as far as disc 3,just after the cheesey music video that was set in the ragnarok spaceship(i still loved that vid though)

looking back,the game was big,still is........the laguna dreams,where you play as a totally different set of characters,the orphange,how they all just happened to come from the same one,the witch enemy.....its gonna be good playing it again,this was the serious one of the 3 games though,not as much humour as the others...but should still be good,its been about 3-4 years since last playing it,hopefully i can make it to at least disc 4 this time

if you were in before,you will definetly be in after seeing this(if you havent seen already)

14minutes vid,first level looks a bit shit TBH,but the second looks fantastic,and very exciting


oh and around 10minutes in,they say its to be a world wide simultanious release...so yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!

warhark video 14minutes long
14843  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / here we go again...HMV taking pre-orders for 360 MGS4 on: August 05, 2007, 03:00:25 PM
i dont know whether you have HMV over in the states,but they are usually a well respected retailer over here(music/games/dvds)



so now it comes to a bit of a shock that they are listing metal gear solid 4 as a 360 game and will be available 5 months after the PS3 version(due april??)

c and vg link

HMV link


I call bullshit myself,but HMV are usually right about this kind of stuff  paranoid so,who knows


will i be bothered now i have a PS3,and MGS4 was the main reason for the PS3...not really,i'll get both....PS3 for the 5 months of playing it,then the 360 version for perhaps online or achievements...who knows......cant see it being 1 disc though,no matter what they say
14844  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Warhawk has gone gold (available on PSN or retail 8/28!) on: August 05, 2007, 10:17:41 AM
just waiting for a UK release date


gonna get the retail,dont fancy buying games as downloads really,and hopefully we will get the same deal with the jabra BT125 headset included

a must have game for my PS3!!
14845  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy VII is 10 years old - replay anyone? on: August 05, 2007, 10:11:10 AM
i would like a remake,but then what would happen if they screw it up,lose its character,perhpas they should save it for when the next gen console is out and we cant play the game on the console(ps4 or ps5)...or should they remake it and put more in

as for the tech demo,when they do remake it,i expect it to look better than that
youtube tech demo vid

i want advent children graphics,lol



and yeah warning,i never got knights of the round(which would of made the end bad guy a lot easier),i get bored with the whole inbred chocobo breeding....and no,i didnt tackle ruby and emerald weapons

and i think it will be a loooong time for me as well until i replay this game again,i think this was maybe the first or at least second time this century that i played,i think it was last century when i finished it the 2 times,thats why Tifa at the end amazed/suprised me
14846  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy VII is 10 years old - replay anyone? on: August 05, 2007, 12:54:56 AM
LOL,oh my icon_twisted





cloud and the others hardly have any space


this is kinda what i saw on the ending



but i was glad to see(was i?),that she looked 'normal' in the advent children film
14847  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy VII is 10 years old - replay anyone? on: August 04, 2007, 08:50:43 PM
finished


spent the last 12 hrs or so getting from 2nd disc in the submarine to the end,i had re-do the end bad guy,safety sephiroth about 4 times,which isnt good because you have to go all the way back and kill all the bosses before him

i can see why the 3rd disc is so short,because of that ending,it went on forever,and then the second ending after the credits




oh,and it wasnt until the ending that i noticed how much...er,Tifa,was a ...full grown woman,if you know what i mean nod icon_wink icon_evil icon_redface


so,gonna have some Jack Daniels and watch FF7:advent children now...and then think about when i wanna start final fantasy 8

final fantasy 7 for me....just got clouds head back together again(disc 2)..going getting the submarine now to get the huge materia icon_wink

That's crazy.  That's literally right where I am in the game!

hypothesis:  warning and metallicorphan are the same person, only their personalities are unaware of each other.  they/he must have found some way to fold space and time.  unless they/he have a third personality who is aware of the other two and considers it an experiment.


sounds like a final fantasy game right there!!

hmm,i hated the demo...this preview DOES make the game sound better(IMO),i know a lot of people loved the demo anyway,and i am sure they will automatically buy it and not need persuading ...i may pick it up still,and see what i can do with it,but it still isnt on my MUST buy list

good read anyhow KD

That HDD required label has been around a long time.  Don't know why people are just picking up on it now.  Here's a news article from February 06 about Football Manager which was the first HDD required game.  It's not a new trend you'll be seeing.  The number of Core Xboxes out there aren't a huge percentage by any means, but it's big enough to give anyone pause before saying "Yeah we're just going to cut them out." 

Wow I would be seriously pissed off if I bought a core 360 and then found out that all of a sudden I couldn't play a lot of games on it.  I know the PS2 had FFXI but that's the only game that required a HD as far as I can remember and you could get it with the game.  Can you actually put a HD in the core 360?  If so then I guess it's not a huge problem, but if you cant even upgrade it then you'd be totally screwed.

and of course final fantasy 11 for the 360,could in no way be played on the core 360 anyway,with that sucker taking up about 7 gig of my 13 gig hard drive....and that was a year and half ago that FF11 came out for the 360

and it was 3 months after the American release of the 360(2months after UK)that the beta version of final fantasy 11 came out...so two months after the core,and the first game appeared that you couldnt play on the core,LOL

Interesting to know that there is a hard mode,and an impossible mode,so therefor maybe we should expect perhaps an easy and medium mode as well....i wonder which difficulty the demo was in..........felt close to impossible to me,lol

Didn't the demo give an option of "Normal" or "Hard" mode?  I only got to play it once before my 360 died, but I thought I remembered that...


now that you mention it yes i remember putting it on normal,and after playing thinking that i will never try out hard...and it was suggested that there should be an inbetween mode......nard disgust

back to GTA,its funny seeing a lot of forums(mainly xbox.com and ps3).....xbox people>>>its playstation 3 fault for GTA being delayed because Rockstar cant get to grips with the ps3 hardware.........playstation people>>>>its xbox 360s fault because of the size of DVDs

and then on the nintendo forums,they are talking about how sonic has been slowed down for the Olympic game with mario,LOL

Beaterator PSP

14857  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GTA4 delayed to Q2 2008 on: August 03, 2007, 06:12:34 AM
maybe what they are really doing is going through the game with a fine tooth comb so as not to risk another all out ban of one of their games...i am sure Take Two wouldnt be able to afford that



but anyway,this is pretty shitty news to be waking up to....

yeah i played this today


i was on the small canyon level,and was leading in the second lap,well one of the AI used some sort of weapon on me and what it did was hold me on the spot,until everybody past me,and let me go when they were all about to lap me again(frustrating isnt the word for it),by the time i got going again,there was no way i could win the race.....couldnt even come 6th,they were that far ahead


came off my hard drive about 40 times faster than it went on

the thing is,is the KH2 story,talks a lot about KH:chain of memories for the GBA(which was the middle game,the true sequel if you want to KH1)and i hated that game and didnt really get far...but i was okay with that when playing KH2...i am sure you will catch up with the story when just playing KH2....but in my opinion,you will still be missing a great game in KH1

okay,sorry i know this hasnt been posted in for some time,but i have only just got this game


and man,its a lot harder than i thought it would be,i have had it a week and i have only just won my first race today,i usually come about 6-7th,graphics are great


i havent played this online yet,might wait until i get warhawk so i can get the headset with it,and then play online more(i'd rather have a headset when playing online with any game)


some of the courses for this agme take a long time to get used to,mainly because it isnt always clear of the way to go,usually i end up going of the cliff because i ahve mistimed my jump,or i have jumped to little or too much

i am also hoping it will get a bit deeper in gameplay,right now,it seems like the same race all the time no matter what track you are on

has anyone tried the motion control yet?,i tried it for a bit but just couldnt get used to it
and how the hell does that motion control work?,the Wii had to have a sensor bar

i played resistance online again last night,and as Calvin said,it is fun but i usually get my ass handed to me on a plate...and you will come to hate with a passion the hedgehog grenades

the spawning is also a problem,i find many a time i am spawning in front of the enemy and it takes less than 5 seconds for me to survive on the board,they can see my spawn bubble as i am entering the map

even though i was again on a 40 player game(rooftops)i now have 11 people on my players met list

Tekken 5 dark ressurection-quite good,and yes,i'm shit as per usual...also if my mum saw me fighting against a Panda and Kangeroo she would throw a fit(and i got a perfect on the Panda as well)

crash bandicoot-not played this since,prolly 1996 when it first came out,still quite good...but is the bonus levels really the only place you can save?

calling all cars-didnt know what to expect,just had heard a lot about it so got it,quite fun...looking forward to playing online,could be a blast

EDIT: oh and also,what is the difference between GranTurismo HD prologue and Gran Turismo HD prologue 2.0....i downloaded the 2.0 after playing the first and i presume it installed over the original,but when playing i dont see a difference to the first download

Speaking on its official forums, a Bizarre spokesperson said: "You won't see different times of day per city because this involves recreating all the textures again (one for day and one for night). Whilst this wasn't a problem for our dev team, it was a problem fitting all this data onto a single DVD."

shame,although they can fit in the weather aspects...hmm disgust

now that i think off it,if the 360 is to last until 2012(their words)...did they really expect games NOT to need more space by then?,this is rather upsetting,as rockstar said the same thing that the 360 was limiting GTA4 because of DVD space.....even if they did start producing games on a HD-DVD format,they would be asking 360 owners to purchase the HD add on...so that would be out of the question

sometimes having multiple discs can make this problem go away,but when its a game like PGR,another disc isnt an answer

Wasn't Bioshock supposed to have insect like bio-mutated enemies in it at one point? All I ever see is humanoid type enemies and the big daddy like hulks.

Actually, the original design for Bioshock was set in an old WW2 underground lab that was taken over by some more modern scientists.  Well the experiment went wrong and created basically insect-like lifeforms with an ecology much like the one in Bioshock.  You had gatherers which searched for the adam, soldiers, who protected the gatherers, and aggressors, which hunted the gatherers.  It was pretty generic and I'm glad they went a different route while still keeping the gameplay concepts.  Having human enemies and allies, along with a story that explores the human condition, makes things have a more emotional impact.

Also, what are the must have PS3 games? I didn't like Motorstorm, which is odd as I usually like "crash-'em-up" racing games. Also, I renting (and loving) VF5. And I bought Tekken 5: Dark Rebellection.


i have only played it once up to now(too many other games),and i was suprised how much i liked it,even though i didnt have a headset.....yes i was poor,but once i got that sniper rifle...the other side were just queueing up for me to shoot them...and i kept myself out of harms way,until the caught on


resistance on other platforms ..at first i would say Gears....but then the maps are to small on gears.....really all i can say(all i can think off really) is COD3,but its done a lot better,i love COD3,but i think resistance has just grabbed me,but i have to give it more time, i only played one map(manchester,because i wanted to see if it looked like the manchester i knew....wasnt bad)

OKAY...a few more questions

the online store only accepts credit/debit cards,and as i have neither...will sony release pre-paid cards like MS do for xbox live marketplace?...or do you guys already have the pre-paid cards?

i played a game online(still havent got a bluetooth headset)resistance,40 player game..no lag......but when i got back to the XMB,i looked at 'friends i have met'...and there were only 4 people on there,is that all it holds?,or did the other 35 people opt out of sharing their gamertag?

and one more(for now)
is there an official HOME site to go to?,i wanna check out whats coming,and all the features

Godfather 3 would've been okay if they cut out Andy Garcia and Scorseze's(sp?) daughter... It still didn't do the first two movies any justice.

I would definitely be on a game for the second movie, especially on the Wii.

Coppola's daughter...and yeah, those two were really not worthy to be in that movie.  She is one of the worst actresses I've seen in a big budget movie.

as you prolly know,winona ryder was to be the part of michaels daughter,but cappolla gave it to his daughter and said he would make it up to winona.....he later cast her in Dracula
