i thought heavenly sword was just abeat em up kind of game?


i look at my collection of xbox 360 games and i have a decent enough mix of games,(not all microsoft of course)

not included the FPS which there some of course
dead rising,enchanted arms,burnout revenge,forza2,kameo,LOTR,BFME2,test drive,godfather,rockstars table tennis,saints row,tomb raider legends,top spin 2,viva pinata,blazing angels,guitar hero 2,just cause,PGR3,amped 3

it doesnt really matter that they arent all microsoft,as long as you can play them on the 360

i think this has been a discussion on MS games since the last xbox,yeah i know there are a lot of FPS games out there ,but i still feel that there are a good deal of other kind of games,should the person want something else other than shooting.....but having said that,if you DO like FPS games,then look no further than the 360

GBA got two Metroid games.  The first was Metroid Fusion, an all new game with some new ideas(like some changes to her armor)  Then, about a year or so later, Metroid: Zero Mission came out. 

Zero Mission was kind of a remake of the NES one, not sure if it was a 100% remake or if it had some storyline reason for being in the same areas/situations, I only played Fusion of the two gba ones.

i have fusion for the GBA,if what you say is true,then i have never played super metroid

did any metroid titles come out for the 64?

i think the underneath isnt as bulky,so really,if you look how you handle your controller,your fingers,can still rest in the same place as they do now....apart from the weight(and i am expecting it to be super light..better had be anyway),i dont think there will be any difference when you are holding the controller,your thumbs will be naturaly resting on the analogue sticks


and i think this came out mainly for IM users,to maybe chat to a friend while watching a movie or even while you are playing an online game with the headset and he is ....i dunno...on his PC

However, one thing that can't be denied is the absolute dearth of PS3 disc games.  Even non exclusives.



are you talking downloads only for the future?,if so,anyone serious about gaming would need a bigger hard drive,especially if that hard drive is also used for SONY's upcoming video on demand service....in fact,i think it would need to be a MUCH bigger hard drive,for the 360 i have ver 40 games,if it got like that for the PS3,i could honestly say that i would be screwed
14928  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360]chatpad on: July 22, 2007, 07:59:27 PM
here are a few pics of the chatpad and headset for the 360,in Europe it is to be released on the 7th september,for 24.99...which i think works out about $50 for you guys,but with our inflasted prices i wouldnt be suprised if you ended up paying 40...or even 30dollars

425.00 GBP = 873.829 USD.  hmmm, if I'm figuring it right (and assuming that's the $599 version) that's about how much all of those would cost if all that was purchased seperately over here.

also take into account that Britain gets ripped off to f...

well...we pay more,because we pay 17.5% V.A.T...so 17.5 % more on the price on  everything from coca cola to video games

14935  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Wii]this weeks VC Euro titles on: July 20, 2007, 02:07:14 PM
for those interested,todays VC titles in europe are as follows


streetfighter 2 turbo hyperfighting SNES-800points
metroid NES-500points
silent debuggers-Turbografx-600points


apparently the streetfighter game,is the same one that appeared on xbox live arcade last year,although without the HD,leaderboards or online play(and achievements of course)...but cost roughly the same price

as i have the streetfighter for XBLA,i may pick up metroid at some point,but still having too much fun with last weeks paper mario to really care
14936  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bully: Scholarship Edition announced for 360/Wii on: July 20, 2007, 06:06:40 AM
i have it for PS2,loved the game and finished it...mainly because i found it was extremely easy(easier than GTA games),i remember having trouble with shop class,but once i got the hang of it,it was a sinch

definetly gonna get this for 360


maybe with re-newed interest because of this,they may think about doing a sequel


also,i am thinking that this remake,and the recently announced 360 table tennis game for the Wii,is to make some money to make up for manhunt 2 going tits up...they shouldnt be too much trouble to port

gets me thinking what else they could ship over,maybe GTA:SA,III or VICE CITY for the Wii...red dead revolver?

okay,before the price drop here in england the PS3 cost 425 for the console and controller only


now,HMV have the PS3 for 425......console,2 controllers(both official),2 BLU-RAY dvds(casino royale and black hawk down),and two games of your choice from a selection of 7(resisitance,F1,motorstorm,ridge racer....not sure of the others,genji or something like that)

may have to look into that,the two BR films are good films IMO,the games i would get would prolly be resistance and motorstorm...although i would like the F1 game as well


dont forget that the Backwards compatible list,i think is pretty dead with the european PS3,so i will have to keep my PS2 next to the PS3 mad icon_lol

That is just about exactly where I am in the game. As long as I didn't miss it in the mountains, I should get it soon.


hmm,thinking back to sunday,i think it may even be in the form of a badge...i just know it was in the shape of a silver hammer that i picked up,you should see it even before turtle joins you,but only when turtle joins can you get it because you need his joint help to get it on the hard to get to ledge

Oh yes. That's a badge. I am hoping for an actual new hammer soon. I know based on one of the quiz questions I got in the game that there are more hammers to come.



oh,i was thinking wearing the badge made your hammer turn to silver hammer so you could kill those spiked things and then take it back off when you were facing normal enemies later in the game....guess i was wrong

Super Paper Mario is Paper Mario without the turn based combat. The combat happens out in the world ala the traditional Mario games, but the game looks, feels, and plays much more like a Paper Mario game than a platformy Mario.

Back to the original, I am in chapter 2 and finding it much more difficult. Those stupid rock monsters have too high a defense for my hammer to damage. I am assuming I will get a new hammer soon, but am worried I might have missed it somewhere. I had to basically run from every fight with them until I reached the desert where now bandits are ganking me.


hammer info
Spoiler for Hiden:
put this as a spoiler,just incase
i just picked up the new hammer,not tried it yet,it was stright after that turtle postman becomes part of your team after you find the 3 letters,which isnt that far into the chapter

Wifi connections can't be "taken up", all that matters if you have enough IPs for your wireless router.  AKA, you can connect as many wireless devices to a wireless router until you reach an internal limit that's probably in the several thousand mark.

Super Paper Mario is more like the Super Paper Mario games with some RPG elements mixed in.  There's no turn based combat at all, but it's actually a pretty fun game.


thanks CK,i will prolly still get it,but certainly not as excited when i first played paper mario on friday and realised that there was also a gamecube and Wii version sequels....definetly gonna get the 1000 year old door though

Gamespot has a 20 minute gameplay demonstration:

http://uk.gamespot.com/video/930279/6174539/mass-effect-stage-demo-1#

Looks awesome with the caveat that the framerate definitely has issues and the game is extremely choppy as a result.  Almost to the point where I'm surprised Bioware let them show it without making huge disclaimers that it isn't final code.   

WOW at the environments and atmosphere though.  Also pretty impressed by how they hide the load times make it much more seamless than their games.  I am a little concerned though that the amount of "unique" worlds that can be visited may lend themselves to a sort of cookie cutter experience like the Elder Scrolls series' dungeons with some minor variations in tilesets.  Hopefully that won't be the case. 

The Gamespot interviewer goes over the line into raving lunatic fanboy mode enough to make me a little uncomfortable but it's still an awesome video. 

Ok, I just watched this video and it is clear to me that he peed on the rug under the desk.  *shakes head*   I may need to build a studio and conduct interviews...


okay i didnt actually see this link earlier,so i have just watched it...i was getting just as excited as the guy behind the desk was.....8minutes 30 seconds when they showed just how big the universe you could explore in got me drooooling,and then they panned out,and then again...i was like 'woah'(no keanu reeves impression intended)

and then in the vehicle on that planet that looked like james bond island seen in the man with the golden gun,only it was very stormy in the game


i think i will pick up that novel now


EDIT: i am also thinking that this commander shepard from mass effect looks a bit like Matthew fox...or should i say Jack shephard from Lost,when i first saw the character and heard the name thats who i thought of
