I don't know if I will download this or not.  I always but the new NCAA game anyway (I know, fuck EA) and I don't want to get pissed off this early in the summer.

Normally I try the demo, get completely sucked back in, buy the game, and within a week I am cursing EA's name. I think I have the strength to stay away...but online dynasties is what I have been hoping for...

Shrug. Sorry, I respect that he's an extremely talented athlete, I just don't get all goo-goo over him like most. I enjoyed golf before Tiger came along, and I'll enjoy it after he retires. I think it's unfortunate that a lot of talented golfers end up having to play in his shadow due to the way the media hypes him.

He pitches fits on the course, throws his clubs, yet nobody says a word. And the announcers always have an excuse. For that putt he missed on the back 9, they were talking about how the ball "hit something" which is why he missed the put. Bullshit, he fucking MISSED it. Hit a bad shot? "Oh, that knee must really be bothering him."

I will admit it's probably much more the announcers/media fault than Tiger's, as he seems like a really nice guy. But the whole "event" that surrounds him I don't care for.

The announcers definitely are annoying most of the time. But this is no different than John Madden with his unusual man love for Brett Favre and Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.

I do get annoyed with the TV coverage the way they cover every single Tiger shot no matter how far behind he is from the leader. But at the same time the majority of golf fans are watching to see him.

Plus, Johnny Miller talks out his ass anyway. No, that ball didn't hit anything. Nobody else played that course that day, and if anything was there Tiger would have seen it and removed it in the 20 minutes it takes him to line up his putts.

I guess we were watching different tournaments.  I saw several shots off the tee where he put it in the fairway but winced in pain.  I remember a shot on the 18th off the fairway where he hit a pretty darn good shot but looked like the pain was going to make him hurl.

Oh come on now, you know Tiger needs to leverage every thing he can to prove to the golfing world he is a good golfer. Up until the injury he only made 7,229 bad shots anyway. Well he has exscuses for every one of them ranging from 9/11 disaster to bird shadows during his backswing.

You get the opportunity to "coach your team" at various times.  You're presented with a menu that allows you to choose a particular coaching focus for the remainder of the drive.  Stuff like "Make your tackles" or "Get the ball back" on defense.  It apparently boosts appropriate stats until the drive ends.

Uh-oh. That has the potential to be an amazing feature in the game, and could drastically change the way I play (I would rather coach than play each game). But knowing EA it will probably be broken and have no way to turn it off.

I just was listening to "La Grange" by ZZ Top.  Please, please, please put this out.  Maybe with "Tush" and any damned other ZZ Top tune in a song pack.

I LOVE LaGrange, probably my favorite song in GH3 (that, and Lay Down, by Priestess). I'd kill for LaGrange in RB, and preferably more ZZ Top as well.

La Grange, Tush, and Cheap Sunglasses would be a song pack that I would spend WAY too much money on.

I would also like some Gov't Mule. Maybe Thorazine Shuffle or Mule.

And sticking to the non radio music I would like to also see Rose Hill Drive. Showdown would probably be a good one. And playing Cigarette by The Clarks would be fun.

I've only used Blogger, and it is really easy to set up and use. And if you have multiple blogs it is very easy to bounce back and forth between all of them from your main screen. and like Wordpress, you can export the code to your own site and still use their interface.

I think Wordpress looks more professional though, or at least has the potential to.

Also, I've always had all my console units lying flat, with plenty of air flow, but a nephew was visiting the night of the overheating event, and he said all his friends say you should only use the 360 in the vertical position.  Since the PS2's were always a problem running upright, I'm wondering if the 360 is different... anyone know?  Just curious if there is any correlation to RROD and vertical/ horizontal placement.  icon_confused

I used to have my 360 sitting horizontal, but I switched it to vertical after I got the RROD. The second unit has been running ok since then. I like to think that it has more surface area exposed, and only a portion of the console is blocked by the floor, so it should cool off more effectively. I know I am kidding myself, but whatever.

Or you could always keep the box until you can get it to die. I don't think there is a time limit on it. My Xbox died the day I went on vacation. I ended up being gone for a month, so when I was finally able to get home and send it in the box had been sitting at my house for awhile.

Wow. I thought Prey was the poor mans...something.

What I'm trying to say is Prey wasn't good.

Do you mean graphically or otherwise?  I actually liked Prey quite a bit.  And while they may not have been award-winning, I thought the graphics were decent, especially for the time.

AITD's graphics aren't jaw-dropping.  There's something kinda dirty about them, unpolished.  But if they're pulling off the kind of things they describe in the other vids, it might be a fair trade-off.

I was just being a jerk. I actually enjoyed Prey quite a bit. The death system bothered me a lot though, or lack thereof anyway, which is why I don't consider it a good game. It was more like just a fun way to kill a couple of hours (nothing wrong with that at all).

When I come up on these guys on XBL, I mute them, submit a bad feedback for trash talking or team killing or whatever, and then set to avoid that player so I never have to get stuck with them again. I'd like to think that one day everyone on live will be set to avoid except for those on my friends list. That will be a happy day.

It seems like the technology is there for Microsoft to regulate this, using just the feedback alone if people use it. Something is going to happen that will force them to pay attention, and hopefully it is the gaming community or game journalists that can push this forward, and not the mainstream media.

360 version for me I guess.

DS games rarely look good blown up so huge.  I agree it doesn't look as pretty as Advance Wars at first glance, but that's the price of having a game as complex as Civilization on a portable.

I don't mind if it's ugly, it's just that it looks close to impossible to tell units apart. Again, reviews should give us a better idea if it works or not.

Yeah, I'm having a hard time seeing what each unit is on that screenshot as well. I was going to suggest this to my Dad for the DS because he used to really like games like Dune and other strategy games. But he wont be able to see what is going on with those graphics.

Oh, another point I forgot: I and others have already addressed and debunked the HDTV portion of the "Wii went backwards" argument, but there is one way in which I feel that the Wii fell behind the new generation's standards: online multiplayer.

Thank you. Personally, I feel this generation is significant for two reasons: the Wiimote and Xbox Live. Those are the two things that have changed the way we play video games, not HD graphics.

And as a hardcore gamer, I don't own the Wii. I think it would sit and collect dust in my house, while I use the 360 almost every day. But at the same time I can recognize what the Wii is doing to the industry. It's hard sometimes to think that there is a barrier to entry when it comes to learning how to play video games, but there definitely is. The controllers used by the 360 and the PS3 are usually confusing and intimidating for people that have never used them before. That can be hard for some of us to appreciate, since I would imagine most of us have been playing games for a long time, and were able to learn slowly over time each new part of the controller. Bill Harris beats this drum over and over about the Wii, but it is true, the intuitiveness of the controller is one of the big reasons why the system is selling like hot cakes. Suddenly all of those people who couldn't do anything but aim at the ground or at the sky can now play almost right away, and are falling in love with video games just like most of us did as we were children.

Discussions work better if people don't skip half the words the other says.  I'm arguing that the entire test city scene made the movie worse.  I enjoyed the movie, but I enjoyed it despite the aliens, despite the CGI zoo, and despite the test city + refrigerator.  Note the plus sign indicating that I'm including the nuclear test city along with the refrigerator.

Why did that make the movie worse?  Were there no test cities around nuclear bomb sites? 

For me, I groaned as soon as he got into that test city. Not because test cities didn't happen, but because there was no way for him to escape a nuclear bomb in a way that made the scene good. If jumping into a fridge is the best they could come up with, the entire scene should have been left on the cutting room floor. It would have been perfectly fine for them to go from Indy escaping on the rocket to Indy talking with the government agents about what happened. They just tried to fit in a nuclear bomb somewhere in the story, because it is set in the 50's

It has jumped the shark so many times that they are now building a bridge.  However, despite all the comments earlier from Rip, et al that they realize that communication is really important, the communications have dried up again.  Besides the rare "it will be back soon" comment that never turns out to be true.  I'm really starting to get bitter about this, and I don't know why!

The Republicans argued that the oil companies would compensate by charging us even more at the pump. Unless there is language in the bill that prevent this (doubtful), then it is likely to happen. Since when have the oil companies done anything to hurt their bottom line?

Well with games like Rock Band you have to decide whether or not you got enough play time for what you paid for. But most of my games are RPG's which mean they're story driven- if you miss the ending of the story, what the hell is the point? 

Looks like you found your answer!

Personally with games like FFX and FFXII, I thoroughly enjoyed playing both games. I got hours and hours of enjoyment out of them, even though I never finished either.

Of course, I like short games too. If the gameplay and story are good, or one of the two is exceptional, then the length of the game is indifferent to me.
1705  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Which is a bigger waste? on: June 11, 2008, 01:34:18 PM
Did you enjoy the 70 hours of gameplay, or hate it?

I spent, what, $170 on Rock Band? A game that can never truly be beaten, and yet I don't regret it at all. It has provided a ton of entertainment, and even the few times I had company over to play was well worth the price of the game and all of the DLC that I have purchased (which I noticed last night was way too much).

Compare that to Rainbow Six Vegas 2, which I played maybe 6 hours total for and strongly disliked most of the time. Yeah, THAT is buyers remorse.

Of those games, how many are you realistically going to play again though?

then again, why would you deliberately limit yourself, gaming-wise, to whatever's currently easily available?...

I wouldn't say I deliberately limit myself to what is currently available. I spend anywhere from 1-2 hours at least playing games when I get home from work. The weekends I usually play more unless I am traveling or the girlfriend gets the weekend off work. Even with all that time I feel I can barely keep up with all of the new games.

Absolutely. I know personally that I never re-read books, and only watch movies more than once if I really really like them or a lot of time has passed between viewings. I know others will watch movies and read books over and over and over again, so it is no surprise to me that others do the same with their video games. What surprises me is that people can juggle playing not just a couple of games at a time, but dozens of games at a time. I must be doing something wrong  icon_biggrin

If they tease something for later in the show that looks interesting, I'll keep watching, but usually I turn it off after awhile.

Of course, I haven't watched either show in a couple months now. But with almost all of the shows I like finished for the season, I'll probably start recording them again.

The controls are excellent. You can tell this was developed specifically for consoles. I haven't played a civ game since Civ 2. I was hopelessly addicted then, and the demo easily sucked me back in.

There's another reason why this likely won't happen though.  Remember all the bluray drive speed problems with the PS3, it's the thing that's causing all the HD installs on the PS instead of being able to stream directly off the drive.  Well, even though bluray drives have advanced quite a bit, I'm not sure the drives would do all that well reading 360 dvds.

Is that because of the drive or because the PS3 games are on blu-ray discs? MS would not be able to allow their games to ship this way, because most of their customers don't have the blu-ray player.

Or am I completely wrong and there is no difference between the discs that the 360 and the PS3 use?

It's a big improvement over the health bar and magical first aid kits, IMO. It depends on the game. For Halo the regenerating health worked and made sense. In COD4 it makes less sense, but as others have said the game wouldn't be any fun if you got shot once and was down. There has to be a way to absorb some damage and keep going.

I'll finish up Half Life 2: Episode One either tonight or tomorrow depending on when the girlfriend gets home. Then after that it will be a toss up between finishing some achievements with GTA4, Rock Band, winning the cup with NHL 08, or moving on to HL2: Episode Two.

Or, none of the above in the unlikely scenario that my copy of Devil May Cry 4 will be delivered by Gamefly.
