i was gonna post this in Knightshade dragons thread(bioshock comp),but decided against it

Gamespot have just posted another gameplay video,for me it comes out the same day as Blue Dragon and the 120 gig hard drive,so its gonna be a wallet busting day

If I do bite, I will get it on the PS3, I will stand by my decision to not buy new games on the 360 if: They're available elsewhere, or if there is a used version(thus denying MS any extra licensing fees).

I can wait until September and it will also give some time to see if the game is actually any good.

when I get my PS3 it's going to be the opposite for me.  If it's available for the 360 it'll be bought for the 360, and the PS3 will be relegated to used games to save money.


for me,its all games multi format are to be bought for the 360,unless something better on ps3,(like free movies,lol)...and then  i will just buy the exclusive titles on PS3....
2 reasons,achievements..although i am not a gamerscorewhore..i do like getting the actual achievement,and would still get them if they didnt have a score

and also XBOX live is so much better at the moment than PSN,the online is okay(resistance is anyway)..but the friends list and extra stuff is a little thin on the ground for the PSN(which i guess it should be as its free...for now)
14883  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: September 07 EGM reviews (Lair, Blue Dragon, Mario Strikers) on: July 29, 2007, 07:00:16 PM
i never really wanted Lair,graphics looked nice but that was it

mario strikers charged came out in the UK about 2 months ago

and Blue dragon is on my to buy list,i liked the demo but felt as though i wasnt at an appropriate level for where the demo had placed me...those scores are dissapointing though,i guess i was still up on the 'doing well in japan/maker of final fantasy' hype.....it prolly wont stop me from buying it though
14884  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viva Pinata question on: July 29, 2007, 09:25:06 AM
its been a while since i played it properly,i dont think you can slow it down...not that i knew anyway,but come later in the game,you will want it to go faster,as you get stuck with nothing to do but keeping an eye on your pinatas until something happens

14889  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Godfather Part II on: July 28, 2007, 06:04:10 AM
seems that a sequel to the pretty darn good godfather is in the works,EA let it slip last year that they intend to make 2 and 3,and now its(GF2) been referanced as in development

hopefully it will be just as good as the first,maybe make new york look a bit better,and i will be happy........oh,and if possible,get al pacino this time,he isnt making scarface video game any more(unless he is still pissed of with robert duvall)


bit worried about number 3,although i think i am the only person on this planet that liked the film,i still cant see how they are gonna make a video game out of the story....perhpas just throw in a lot of behind the scenes action

14890  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360/PS3]Stranglehold...which are you getting? on: July 28, 2007, 05:41:53 AM
okay,everybody knows that the demo for stranglehold will be up in the next week or so on XBOX LIVE (no mention of PSN)..well,you know now

but which version will you get when its finally available for purchase?

the PS3 version is still apparently coming shipped with the 'prequel' BLU-RAY hard boiled,which is a great film,OTT but an all out fast paced classic gunfighting film....BUT......the PS3 version will be released 3 weeks later than the 360 version

the 360 version will have the usual achievements and such...but no HD-DVD of hard boiled(not sure if its even out on HD-DVD)
EDIT:as only the 360 can play DVDs,maybe they could of at least provided the DVD of hard boiled


360-27th August
PS3-17th september



i think i will get the PS3 version....a)i have Blue dragon,bioshock and MoH:airbourne at around the end of august....and b)even though its a BLU-RAY dvd..and i dont have a HD TV,i can still watch them on my TV,and i havent seen hard boiled for years


i havent a clue about the online for this game...but i dont think that would swing it anyway for me


so,which are you gonna choose,(if any)?

i heard about that at the E3 show,i really cant wait for it,as i loved the two star wars trilogy games and cant wait to play them both again when the two in one package comes out in a few months...what i really would like would be LEGO lord of the rings as well


any other ideas?
14893  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Games based on Heroes and Lost on: July 27, 2007, 06:42:55 PM
i think i first heard about LOST being a video game before series 3 started...it was,at that time meant to be set between series 3 and 4...but the way series 3 ended,it would have to give something away fromt he series,and that would alienate the non gamers who are fans of LOST...so i think its just set a lot earlier



Heroes is another i cant wait for....in fact Heroes and LOST are my two favourite shows

i am wondering,do you think any MGS4 trailers will appear on the PSN?

The most recent E3 trailer is on there. 




i cant find any on there,maybe America and Europe content is totally different




in a magazine they had a poll,which was their favourite MGS game.....only 1 2 and 3 were there to pick,so sign of the early games,the ac!d games,or port ops

results were in

metal gear solid 3:snake eater was number 3 with 20% of the votes
metal gear solid was second with 30% of the votes and
metal gear solid 2:sons of liberty was first with 50% of the votes

i love all MGS games,but 2 is my least favourite(still great though)...my favourite is snake eater
14903  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sony just cant keep their mouth shut on: July 26, 2007, 05:54:38 AM
i know what you mean but to be honest,SONY are more prone to this,this is just something that was said,and really caught me by suprise really...when you want to say something to a world audience,surely he should get some facts right first..and also,it would seem that its the video game players who this is also aimed at...if they want to download it,then thats where the gaming is at that time

of course he isnt the only one,peter moore i think just last week said that sony arent doing a decent job in Japan,but i think everyone knows that the 360 is REALLY struggling with japans audience,and he should of really bit his tongue instead of saying that


in other words,its as though these people(SONY ,MS...not so much ninty) are just baiting the competition and us,just for us to react with the obvious answers

i think these companies thrive off this icon_smile
14904  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: got a PS3 today...my impressions on: July 26, 2007, 05:45:20 AM
how is this for more wookiee?




anyway,i basically posted about getting a PS3 for two main reasons...1 is,that i was quite excited with it,as i was with the 360

another is,that right now,the PS3 has got many mixed reviews or views,so i think another persons view on the console is good,maybe give someone the idea of whether they want one or not

i know that framerate is something that i am concerned with,when games like R6:V and darkness apparently suffer on the PS3...but i think i will still be getting my 3rd party games on the 360...achievements and online etc,unless there were somekind of extras on the PS3 version

but i am now looking forward to MGS4,FF13 and maybe Home.....and now i know that at least i wont miss out on these games

the 360 is a great console still(although the rings of death dont help),but like Denoginizer said,the Wii has still been a dissapointment to me,it has a lot of bells and whistles with the motion sensor,internet,weather etc....but if the games arent there then it isnt doing its job IMO


and i didnt know what SIDS is,so i googled it

I read that article on Gamasutra last night and while I think that comment is wrong if applied to Microsoft's Live Arcade, I don't see it as being too inflamatory.  Microsoft has released a lot of ports from PC and old arcade games, Mad Tracks being one of them.  Overall I thought in the interview Dille was pretty honest about what they have accomplished and the fact that they have a ways to go. 

oh was mad tracks a port?...LOL,well there you go then,i never knew that paranoid

what about todays wing commander,thats a new one isnt it?
14907  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / got a PS3 today...my impressions **EDIT:now with added questions** on: July 25, 2007, 02:24:17 PM
so today i finally got my PS3...i am now a proud owner of the PSWii60<<<god i feel a dork saying/typing that,LOL


i got the package
console+2 controllers
motorstorm,resistance games
casino royale,black hawk down BR dvds

anyway,i fired it up,didnt have any problems with signing in from when i registered my name,which was great

played about for a while with looking around the menus getting to know stuff,from this point i was a little overwhelmed,but hopefully i will get used to it

so,i find where the memory tells you how much you have left

its 55gig(i know that its 60 gig,but its the same with the 360...13 gig out of 20 gig)...but the thing is it said about 49gig left,and i hadnt downloaded anything,and nothing was there in the videos etc

USB cable for the joypad is a little short,but then again SONY always do give short leads.....looking at the ethernet cable i got with it as well,thats a lot shorter than the 360 one

so,i went onto the PSN store,browsed for a while,and downloaded a few trailers and some demos...dont like how i cant buy stuff of there,i wanted tekken 5!!...i dont have a credit card though,hopefully points cards or something will come out,as i was discussing on here the other day

Ninja Gaiden sigma demo....why the hell do i have to sit through the warning???

oh,and download the demo,and then install it?.....gits

i put in my PSP memory card,i had some videos on there that i got from teamxbox,force unleashed trailer looks even better on the big screen,i was quite impressed with that,that means when LOST series 4 starts and i get them from Limewire and usually watch them on my PSP..now i can watch them on my TV

i had a picture of drew barrymore in her knickers and top on my PSP,so thats now my wallpaper icon_biggrin

is there anything at the moment that the PSP can do with the PS3...other than what i have mentioned,any interactive with PS3 games for instance?


okay,first,just as i was checking i thought i would put in the Blu-ray dvds......i have a SONY wega triniton widescreen (32" i think) television,not HD,although i have always marvelled at the ace picture...but i still wasnt expecting the BRs to work...but they did,picture was fine,but you could tell on a HD,it would look a lot better,but still....didnt expect them to work at all

resistance:fall of man......oh nice its all set in england,and some in manchester where i live...how cool is that....oh wait,hold on....Americans coming to save us????...typical!!!!,lol

the game was quite good what i played of it,(about 10-20minutes)...wouldnt mind having the fire button on R2 though,R1 was a tad awkward...but still gonna look forward to playing through that in the coming days....and 40 people online..nice

Motorstorm...wasnt expecting to like this,but i did,it was a lot fo fun,and the graphics are vewy,vewy pweetty..although the opening movie,stuttered some....maybe another corker online(but could only connect to Australian or Europe servers..shame)


okay,the big test...the european backwards comptible part...with the collection i have

final fantasy 7-fine
final fantasy 8-fine
final fantasy 9-fine
10-fine
dirge of cerberus-fine
star ocean-fine
bully-fine
(i have others but havent tried them yet)


in fact from what i could tell most ran quite good,and looked,or at least it seems it looks better,wherther some problems prop up later on a later disc maybe i dont know


gran turismo HD concept was.....dissapointing,cars werent what i was hoping for,and the crowds animation want very impressive...most were statues...but it is a demo,so hopefully it will improve

F1 demo,was a lot different than i was expecting,fast and furious,more like crash bandicoot,i was expecting to have to be very careful,but i found i could wiz round the track...so i think i may pick this title up,even though the racers are now quite old

1 real bad point is the lack of a headset,now i have to go to town and pick one up some time...hopefully get one that works with the system


overall,at the moment i am quite impressed with it,its big,its heavy-ish..and gets fingerprints on it easily...but its certainly better than i thought it was gonna be.....now,will the games come out for it?


14908  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sony just cant keep their mouth shut on: July 25, 2007, 01:54:28 PM
again,Sony have 'attacked' Nintendo and Microsoft,this time telling the world that virtual console and xbox live only offer old content

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=168861

Quote
Talking of Sony's online strategy, Dille said: "whereas our competition takes a bunch of old content and catalogs content from previous generations and offers that in a download fashion, our development organization are making games specifically for PS3.

now,with Virtual console...fiar enough,it is old content....but if the average gamer,wants to take a break from next gen gaming and play a classic game...wheres the harm in that?

now,of course with xbox live arcade......well,there is a lot of old content,and to be trueful,stuff i would never touch in a million years(or 20 years ago)...but XBLA also has some great new titles,and from the games i have played have been quite decent...mad tracks being my favourite



and hang about i got a PS3 today,and i saw wipeout and crash bandicoot up there.....so whats all that about?

when the disc tray on my 360 wouldnt close i had to send it off,first the customer service was better than i thought it would be(although i am in England....but we do tend to have crap customer service on average)...and a UPS truck came i think the next day and the woman said it would be 7-10 days(not sure if it was working days she said)...i got my 360 back within the week...although,my problem wasnt the 3 rings of death....but i was quite happy with the service,true it shouldnt of broke on me like that,after 8 months buying the console...but i was expecting my pain to be worse

that was last August,i am hoping that they may of improved the service some more by now
