yeah simple and clean,i did notice the name at the credits...who are they?...it sounded like it came from a disney movie or something
hope you are kidding about sephiroth...isnt he like the hades cup or something?...all 40 ish rounds?..i did the first 3(10 rounds each)..but not the hades and the ???? cup....i tried one of the secret bosses,the one in agrobah he had 6 arms and he just handed my ass to me..didnt help that he disabled magic for me ,the duck and the dawg
the good thing about this game,thats different than the final fantasy games..is when you level,you usually have to get EXP again,for a higher amount...this game,i think after 50 or 55 i noticed that it was stuck at 17,000..or 18,000..so all i did was go round traverse town killing the enemies,i did a certain route that would take me through 2nd district,the hotel,the gizmo shop,on the rooftops and then into 3rd district...,if i did that run twice(which would take about 20-30 minutes)..i would level...thats why it took me 8 hrs to gain 18 levels,LOL
now take me in final fantasy 11..and i think i am destined to be on level 32 forever!!!!
just started number 2...they have changed a few things,not sure for the better,but we'll see
i knew that square had announced seperate final fantasies for every system(wii gets FF:CC2)....but this would be great for the Wii having kingdom hearts 3..although the inbetween sequel.-chain of memories did appear on the GBA..but an actual full blown adventure...the keyblad being the wii-mote...this can only be cool...nothing less,hopefully sony will get pissed off and have an arguement with SE and SE pull FF from the ps3...okay,so i can dream
YAY i did it..i cant believe it,i have had the game for 3-4 years and i have finally done it
i levelled to 70 and then went to see if i could do it,and getting past that ansem guy was what i needed...the rest of the bosses came easily(as well as ansem again...but i beat him again)...well...i did them anyway.
below is a spoiler on the ending and a link that shows the ending on youtube
Spoiler for Hiden:
the ending was good...perhaps could of done without the saturday morning disney song,but that doesnt matter...yeah yeah..riku is still lost,as is king mickey(following pluto at the end will no doubt find him)...and kiari and her gi-normous feet are on destiny islands alone...but what i really wanna say is..HOLY SHIT...aries and cloud back together!!!!...wonder how many FF fans actually know about this?...i never..i wonder if any FF fans have scoffed at the idea?
heres the vid of the ending for anyone who wants to see it...damn cool,this vid is 9 and a half mins...and its a bit pissing loud as well....i'm gonna download it onto my PSP ...although this ending doesnt have the short vids after the credits of everyone meeting up with friends etc(aries and cloud...pinocchio becoming a real boy,no suprise..wheres his cat anyway??.LOL)..and pluto with the letter
i remember when MM came out.and it was very expensive, £60...which 360 games are £40-£50,that could be one of the reasons why it was ignored.....i bought it much later,and didnt get into it at all...it wasnt until the gamecube 4 game disc that i played it,printed a guide of the internet(zelda universe or something like that)..and then played and finished it...with all the masks as well....there have been rumours that all zelda games will be coming to virtual console(excluding WW and TP,obviously)..so if it does make an appearance i think that will be the time when i play it again....i know the first zelda is on there now,and the second one has just come out for virtual console in japan(dont know about you guys)..so hopefully it wont be long
okay,i have got the oblivion keyblade(which is pretty cool,thx EddieA)...and i started grinding at the colluseum....but that was very slow and was taking all my items away,and i wasnt making any money
i went to traverse town,ever since rescueing kiari,there have been bigger enemies there,so i started to level up there,and the levels just flowed by,as i get HP balls...dont use items now....anyway...i got to level 65(i wanted to make sure i did it)...and tried again,but i died at the same f*&kin' point....it just wont let me heal myself when i need to and he kills me...so i am now grinding again i am currently level 66,and when i get to level 75 and it still wont work,then i am calling it quits....the shadow dude is piss easy but that ansem,who you have killed a dozen times already(and i still have to beat him again...and on my own again after this fight)gets his shadow to grip me and i cant move(or heal),and thats when i die
and yes,that TV has had some more verbal abuse directed at it

Alright, I'm certainly no TML when playing UT2k4. Or gellar when I play BF2142. But I'm alright. I even hit the top of the leaderboard sometimes (and way more often once I unlock that god damn Baur).
But man, when I play a console shooter, it's like my hands turn to stone. In Gears of War, I'm all jumping around from cover to cover, that's not a problem. Even got a few immensely satisfying chainsaw kills. But once that left trigger is pushed, aiming becomes a chore. Or more like, I can't aim with the precision I usually have with the mouse. This is my first console shooter, so I know I have a pretty big learning curve to get over. But JESUS CHRIST, how do you guys do it?
thats funny,because i would like to know how you guys can do FPS on a PC...i play call of duty a lot on PC and the mouse is fine...its the keyboard W-forward,A-left,D-right,CTRL-crouch,SPACE-jump etc...that really cripples my left hand
i suppose the mouse is even more of an advantage(with it being super fast as well),with the crosshair,maybe not even needing to look down the sights...on COD3 on 360,looking down the sights before i shoot,has kinda like become second nature
has anyone beat this game?....i am second to last boss ansem..fighting him,yet AGAIN!!(although the last boss is in 8 stages)..this game has become the hardest game i have ever played
if you have beat it,can you remember what level you had got to
i loved kingdom hearts,but it just seems a bit pathetic how they keep throwing boss after boss after boss at you(it may just be me pissed off 'cos i cant get to the end)
its like..'oh,done that boss,have you?,well try this......oh done him have you,fine have this one then....done him,well try this without donald and goofy then'...and so on and so on...its bad enough that the last save point was 2 boss fights ago!!!
i bought kingdom hearts 2 in september,but i havent even put the disc in because i wanted to finish the first...but...ouch!!
seriously though if they were gonna make this game this hard,they should of done manga/anime characters....'cos disney characters is kinda misleading,LOL

Yes, the PAL signal is a bit better, but we're still talking about 6 times the resolution, on HD DVD/BR, than what you are getting from regular DVD, or that PAL signal. When you can see individual nose hairs, like you can in King Kong and Mission Impossible III, I think its safe to say its a marked improvement and most acknowledge that. 480i DVD to 480p is marginally better picture quality, 480p to 1080p is a HUGE step up.
LOL,has Tom Cruise got a lot of nose hairs?
yeah,okay i see your point on that,but amazing picture over great picture doesnt justify ME for starting again...i really cant think or guess what would actually,it would have to be something different than on a disc,Maybe....3-D that actually works or holorams or smellovision,LOL..but right now i just see the same kind of format(disc),with the same features as DVD,but better picture.......maybe downloads would do it...no discs,no cases,all on one gigantic HDD(so thats 360 out)..yeah maybe if they were in the same quality as HD/BR then i would start again that way(i could do with the space)
its funny i seem to remember when microsoft first showed off the specs of the 360(whatever it was named then)and sony accused them of bringing out an xbox 1.5 instead of an xbox2(if you catch my drift),so interesting to hear the 360 can keep up and in someplaces overtake the ps3...thats what was said...and to tell you the truth i have pointed that out because i am a xbox and Wii fanboy
what ps3 really want to do is get more exclusive games for its sytem,this is no secret ..they need more of games like MGS4 or FF13,to make someone like me...WANT to buy PS3 system at this time,but can any new series,or game come along and make an impact like that?
i seem to have my wires crossed about the HDD in the PS3,can you detatch it anyway?...i thought it was a fixed internal drive....have i heard wrong?
i was in the shops today looking at the discs and i was looking at the films i already have,and most of the discs didnt have the special features that my DVDs include...yes the DVDs i have are usually 2 discs,but still...
and i have said before on here that us in the UK have had a hell of a better picture than you guys since the 80's(not bragging,just sayin') ,so the picture upgrade is not as impressive as it is for you guys...
now you take that picture quality that we get from satallite,cable or even terrestrial television,and then you give us DVDs in the late 90's and the picture gets even more impressive...but then you give us thisHD/BR 8 years or so later...like i say ..marginally better picture quality
the thing is the people bring out these formats,when people,like me have already built up a big library of films..and when that format,doesnt really justify the leap in next gen formats like VHS to DVD did(i had over 1000 video cassettes at the time)...for people to go out and buy new HD or BR players,or start buying new discs to start the collection again....just isnt worth it...its still gonna have all the normal features that DVD have,like chapters,menus,subtitles etc,that VHS didnt have...and yes i know i dont have to buy into it,no ones asking me to,but i will buy into a new format when i feel it will be worth it
true what you say on the price thing though,i remember DVD players costing a lot when they first came out..now you can buy a cheap player the same price as a DVD
anyway,sorry i am just trying to make you see things from my point of view,i am sure that from your point of view,the plunge to buy all of this maybe a better choice
meh...both of them suck,i was looking at the blu ray and HD dvds in the shops.....1,they are overpriced ...2,special features are sometimes on the films..(etc...some on harry potter...none on king kong)and if they do have special features,it isnt as many as DVDs have...and3,crap cases...all this for marginally better picture...no thank you,DVD looks great on my TV...so i aint one to change-especially when i have just a little under 1200 DVD titles,LOL
i like the achievements in a game,but couldn't care less about the score....for me i think that is kinda not fair on the poor kids,LOL
king kong is a good game to get all the achievements out of a game(there are only 9)but for those who like the score,thats an easy grand!!!...its a decent game,doesnt deserve the slagging off it gets...especially if you can find it cheap(its in the classics range now)..renting it for a night,might be best
yeah i read about this yesterday,although the site i read it on,said it was 'marked' copies of crackdown...so does that mean there will only be so many copies of crackdown that includes it?...if so,better be fast
honestly i think its just some japanese kid who has 'invented' a cool little gizmo so you can use the keyboard and mouse...but it could proove useful for those who play call of duty,but are used to the pcs 'faster' turning with the mouse...and are pissed off with the controller....and i know a few
having played call of duty 1,UO and COD2 on the PC...and then COD2 and COD3 on the 360,i am not one to complain about the difference,i just got used to it(i didnt even think about it until someone mentioned it to me)
i think i will only buy it for collectors sake(like FFX-2),i have all the others(or will have when they release them)...but it looks like to get the most out of this,you will need 3 friends again..and i havent got 3 friends,lol...the first one was okay on your own,but i really felt as though i was missing out
here is the site...japanese language pack needed(well,not really,you can still watch the video)
LOL,a lot of you guys are really putting me off buying one of these machines when it finally comes my way...all this messing about with the settings 480,720 1080 etc....is just crazy,whatever happened to just putting the disc in and you're away?

Well and remember that the Wii is $250 now and (cue Devil) Nintendo is already making money on it. As they refine the production process I can see the Wii dropping to $200, then $150 eventually and probably still being profitable. I think there are a lot of people who will eventually buy a Wii maybe as their only system or maybe as another one to go with their 360 or PS3.
the gamecube was the cheapest of the 3(at least here in the UK)...and they didnt drop the price until outlets and video game shops in general,stopped/refused nintendo products altogether because they just werent being bought,nintendo had a decent enough month or two after that,then it went back to how it was(sales wise,not price wise)thats when i bought my second gamecube because it was £80 and came with the 4 game zelda disc(360 games cost £40-£50)
i have both a Wii and a 360(ps3 hasnt even been released here)and the Wii is a cool little machine..but it feels as though the games just aren't there for it at the moment...with less than half a dozen games(i think it stands at 3 titles) wanted for it by me in 2007
i have finished zelda,so i havent touched that again...red steel i am having some probelms getting into,but WILL try again...only the virtual console at the moment that i am playing on it(sim city rules).....its funny that nintendo have always said its about playablility with their consoles,not graphics or power so it is suprising to see ..the weather channel,the news channel,the internet channel etc,but i have always loved nintendo so i am not about to desert them...but i DO know that its practically in house games only for that console..me thinks,and the backwards compatible works fine
whereas the 360 goes strength to strength(again IMO)..the games coming out for the 360 look great and i have lost count of the games i want for it in 2007,this console you can depend on in house games and thrid party titles...and xbox live is still great...and hopefully like blue dragon before it,lost odyssey can get the japanese pumping about the 360
the numbers...obviously ps3 being last for now because they screwed up big time getting the numbers of units available...i think that the Wii may only keep it up because of its price...........now if the 360 was to cut their price(it has been out for over a year now)...it could see them start to take a more serious lead
i have just finished twilight princess last week and started wind waker the other day....wind waker is a joy to play as is TP,but WW is so good looking its unbelievable...i guess TP edges it for epicness
a link to the past ocarina of time majoras mask wind waker twilight princess
all some of the greatest games ever made...please dont ask me to choose between them...they are all great
if they ever make it to this side of the pond i will get SMB....sim city comes out for us next week ,cant wait for that...the only decent game we have that you havent,is donkey kong country(which is great)....but i am sure(hoping)that eventually both lists will be more or less identical soon
good impressions..must say it looks great,i enjoyed the golf on the wii sports disc but it just wasnt long enough....this is the kinda game i was looking for(it is longer than the golf game on wii sports right?)
so,how many holes,courses,whatever is in this game?
and heres me thinking the only games due for the wii that i wanted are mario galaxy and metroid
unfortunately,i cant find a release date for the UK.

This will be very handy when coupled with my 360. I'll be able to play a game on the 360, keep the FAQ up on the Wii, and just flip over when I need to check something. Much handier then walking all the way to the computer room .
thats what i have been doing with viva pinata and the wiki site that DonD put up in the viva pinata thread
