Quote from: Canuck on June 11, 2008, 01:40:39 PM

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.
1682  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.

I have about 30-40 PS2 games, and I bought the 60gig version specifically because I wanted a PS3 and I wanted to keep access to my titles.

same here...own about 30-40 PS2 games, and therefore bought a 60gig PS3

last thing I want is to be forced to keep my PS2 out in my entertainment setup and taking up sources/space

Wow. I've had the 360 since launch and I own like...maybe 10 games. At least six of them were purchased the end of last year. The rest of my gaming comes mostly from Gamefly.

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.

i guess, basically, it's all about why & how you play games. in the same way people value old books, music, & movies, some people value old games (many of which have a way of either disappearing altogether or only being available at grossly inflated prices)...

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

And, see, this is why this is always a thing.  You don't have that many games that you want to play, but someone else does. 

Not saying you were making a criticism, m, but this kind of thinking leads many people to dismissing the importance of BC to others.

It was a genuine question. I can't fathom even owning 80 games, let alone playing them all enough to the point where I would feel uncomfortable "losing" the ability to play them.

Godfather (360) was the only sandbox style game that I continued to play after I completed all of the main story missions. Even with GTA4 the moment I finished the storyline I saved it and turned it off. But Godfather I probably played for a couple more weeks. Great game.

I downloaded the demo and last night I tried out the MP...man, I was terrible. I never even saw anybody, but I would die after taking a couple steps. The only kill I got was when I spawned behind someone who was camping our spawn points...so he got what he deserved. I also killed myself in the tank probably three times. I would shoot at an enemy tank, and if I was close up it would say "suicide" and I would be dead, while the other tank would keep going.

I hate to admit this, but Attack of the Show and X-Play are guilty pleasures of mine. X-Play I find is good to turn on while I'm doing something around the house, or folding laundry or something. And I watched Attack of the Show last year for awhile, mostly for the first 20 minutes or so where they show the internet videos. 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.

There, I said it.  paranoid

Wow. I downloaded the demo and tried it out over the weekend, and this game went from almost no interest to a day 1 purchase for me. I think I played the demo all weekend long. 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.

Quote from: Turtle on June 09, 2008, 01:40:03 AM

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.

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

Character is extremely important.  Would you want to do teamwork with a wife-beater who is an ass-hole to everyone to boot?  Someone who thinks they can do what they want and not stand up for the same societal values as everyone else should - all while making millions and millions of dollars?  No.  Not only that, they have an honororay influence on kids because of their well-paid positions and should take pride in being good role-models - or at least be neutral if they don't give a crap.  Just don't set negative role-model incentives - like Amy Winehouse and the young girls who adore her.

None of that matters in the NFL. It should. But it doesn't. Players don't care normally because if the person is really good at what they do, it helps them achieve a life long dream, while also the potential to earn millions more dollars than they could have otherwise. Players also can't affect who is around them, or at least it is rare for a player to actually have a say or influence.

Terrell Owens in Philadelphia.  His presence did far more harm than good.  And before anyone argues that he was one of the main reasons why Philadelphia earned a place in 2003's Super Bowl, he missed a good portion of the season and the playoffs due to injury.  While his contribution helped, it was far from being the deciding factor.  While character may not matter to the NFL as a whole, it certainly matters to Philadelphia.

GM's who control who is a part of the team have a better say. Some care about character, most are willing to look the other way if they are a more competitive team, which is their ultimate goal. And Owners just want a license to print money. They wont step in until the printer gets jammed.

Fortunately Philadelphia does not follow this paradigm.  While Terrell Owens is a talented receiver, following his antics and negative influence on the team, he was benched and forbidden to ever again don Eagles green regardless of season standings or financial consequences.

You obviously remember that situation better than I would, but I thought the year they went to the Super Bowl he was playing nice, and didn't turn nasty until the following season when they went 8-8. That was also a situation where it became apparent to all it would either be him or McNabb left in the locker room. In that situation, TO will lose every time.

There are plenty of people who will vote for Obama because of his race. And there are plenty of people who will not vote for Obama because of his race.  No big surprise there.  It is what it is.  As foolish as it sounds today, there there were the same feelings about JFK being a Catholic in 1960.  Hopefully 50 years from now if a black man is running for president, talking about his race will sound as silly as talking about Kennedy's religion sounds today.  But anyone who thinks race will not be a factor in this year's election is naive.

Well put. Unfortunately though, that isn't that foolish today. I remember seeing a poll done where over half of the country would NOT vote for a person, even if they were well qualified, simply because they are an atheist.

I can't find the poll itself, but here is an article that references the poll.

Quote
A Gallup poll in 1999 asked American voters the following question: "If your party nominated a generally well-qualified person for president who happened to be an X would you vote for that person?" X took on the following values: Catholic, Jew, Baptist, Mormon, black, homosexual, woman, atheist. Six out of the eight categories secured better than 90 percent approval. But only 59 percent would vote for a homosexual, and just 49 percent would vote for an atheist. Bear in mind that there are 29 million Americans who describe themselves as nonreligious, secular, atheist, or agnostic, outnumbering Jews tenfold and all other religions except Christianity by an even larger margin.

As an Obama supporter, I think it is valid to suggest that ONE of the reasons he is getting such a big portion of the black voters is because he is also black. To deny this is the equivalent of closing your eyes, covering your ears, and shouting "NO,NO,NO,NO,NO" over and over again in denial.

At the same time, this does not mean that this is the ONLY reason people are voting for him. Clearly, there are numerous qualities that make him a desirable candidate. I would imagine that the percentage of people who vote for Obama, and that his skin color is their #1 reason for voting for him, would be very low in comparison to other reasons to voting for him.

Congrats to the Red Wings. As much as the Pens were able to make this an entertaining series, the Red Wings looked like champions throughout.

And the officiating was terrible all around. Blatant penalties committed by both teams would go uncalled, and then the penalties that were being called were weak at best. The only good thing is that it seemed to go both ways. It will be interesting to see if this is addressed or not in the offseason.

If I have no other option, I will record a sporting event, and go into lockdown mode. I had to do it with a lot of the Pens games this year. It sucks when I'm at work, because I can't go to ESPN. But most of the other sites I frequent wouldn't have any spoilers. I also have to send out a text message to a couple of people before the game starts and tell them I am not watching it, so they know not to send me any messages.

If I am able to watch the game at home, I will watch it live if I know that someone else I know is going to be watching it live, because I'll most likely be sending text messages to them about the game. If it is a game nobody else cares about but me, I'll record it and start watching about halfway through so I can cut through most of the commercials.

One thing I noticed though is that if I am watching a game live, I am reluctant to pause the game, or rewind it to watch a play again. I don't know why this is, because if I have recorded the game I do it without hesitation.

I really don't understand how anyone in their right mind would want to continue down the same path we have been going down for the past 8 years of this asshole in the white house.

A lot of us don't feel that McCain = a continuation of Bush policies. Before McCain was ever considered anywhere close to being a nominee, he was painted as a maverick who scored better with independents than his own party and was known for his moderate stances. Even when he was fighting with Huckabee for the nomination, he was painted as a guy who would have an extremely difficult time appealing to the more conservative base of his own party.

Then he clinches the nomination, and all of a sudden he is portrayed as a Bush lackey who will constitute a third term of Bush.

Sorry, but if you believe that, then you are freely buying into Democratic spin. In reality, it doesn't make much sense. 

Quote
Something happened and he became a pet of Bush and the Republicans.

That "something" was him clinching the nomination and the Democratic war machine going on the offensive to paint him as a Bush clone.

I think your timeline might be off.   If you made this 2000 rather than 2008 then I would agree with you.  McCain was totally the Not Bush Republican (in the way was presented) until he lost to Bush in the primaries.  Then something happened and his presence changed.  He felt like he didn't want to become the Not Bush Republican Whipping Boy and became the Bush Thrull instead.

I was going to post something similar to this. Before 2000 I would have voted for McCain in a heartbeat, and is was probably the only republican I could stand. But since he lost the primary it has felt like he believed the only way to win the primary is to appeal to the same people that voted for Bush.

I'm far from an expert on politics, but I have still had the impression of McCain as a "Bush Clone" years before he won the primary a couple of months ago.

How many people live in your house, how many shows do they record, how often do they watch the recorded shows, how long is your own backlog, and how much space do you have left on your DVR?  I keep an extra 90 minutes off all the hockey games I record, but recording that much extra, in HD (sorry, kratz), rapidly eats up what little space we have left.

Okay, what little space *I* have left.  My girls hardly watch any TV programs...

We don't record many shows, but we barely ever watch TV. I have entire seasons of Lost, Supernatural, Smallville, Grey's Anatomy and several other shows that my girlfriend records and never watches still on my DVR. I know most people that have DVR run out of space fairly quickly unless they watch everything, but I rarely run out of space. Then again, I set a couple shows to not be deleted unless manually erased, and let a bunch of other shows purge off after awhile.

I've had to record several games this postseason. I always tell it to record an extra 3 hours after the scheduled ending so that I know I get everything, even if it goes into multiple overtimes.

I think it also depends on what game you are playing, as well as the game mode. A game that is a little bit more on the realistic side like COD4, it is a valid strategy to sit and defend a position, especially one that is important to the map. I might have a problem in a game like Halo under certain situations, but I think I have changed my views on camping since playing COD4 so much.

Each NFL team is a big corporation. All they care about is making money. And if they have the option to bring in a talented player with some personal issues, or a stand up citizen that is an average player, the talented player will win every time, unless the backlash from the fans is going to be big enough that it is going to be a problem.

The only way character will ever truly matter in the NFL is if it matters to the fans, because they have the power to hurt the teams in the pocketbooks. But right now that blind regional loyalty wins out almost every time.

That was a game that ought to get NHL ratings up again. It was still on at 11:30 here, which means people tuning in to Leno and the nightly news got an amazing game instead.

I've read that the ratings have been up pretty big in the US all series. The two games on Versus were up well over 100%, and I think Game 3 on NBC pulled in a 2.4 share or something, which is the biggest game since 2000 or 2002.

And apparently Game 4 pulled a 2.3 share, but Game 5 was way up.

Quote
The Pittsburgh Penguins' 4-3 win to avoid elimination against the Detroit Red Wings earned a 4.3 overnight rating and an 8 share on NBC. That's a 79 percent increase over last year's 2.4 for Game 5 between Anaheim and Ottawa.

It was the best Game 5 rating since the Carolina-Detroit matchup in 2002 drew a 4.5.

Did they ever say what his injury was? I immediately thought concussion, because he looked out of it when he was sitting on the ice and later on the bench. But if that was the case I doubt they would let him come back even if it was just for the power play.

Yeah, it amazes me how this show could be all about these chicks' relationships and sexual escapades when 3/4 of them are completely unattractive.

I'll give you a hint, from the linked article:

Women made up 85 percent of the audience on Friday, Fellman said.

The other 15% were gay guys, pets and eunuchs.

And the poor schmucks who said ok Honey, if you go see Indy with me this week, Ill go see SaTC with you next week.    retard

I did this for Superman Returns and The Devil Wears Prada. Unfortunately for me Superman Returns sucked.

I highly doubt anyone would agree with me, but I'd say the Back to the Future movies qualify. They do in my opinion anyways. However, I was too young to see the first one by itself and have to wait for the sequels. The first one is more of a teen comedy, and if I was expecting mostly that from the sequels, I may have been disappointed. Some people say they got "too sci-fi." Well, whatever. I love them all. And I think the sequels improved upon the original.

Sorry, I just checked and it turns out that the order of quality for the BttF movies is 1, 3, 2, just as I had suspected. slywink

For the BttF movies, you can rank it (best to worst) 1,2,3 or even 2,1,3 but in no way can you say 3,2,1

The third movie was no way better than part 2. Impossible.

No, no, no. 2 is the worst.  It is a total mess with all the back and forth, and the reshoots of the first movie from different angles and the bad aging makeup. 1 is the best, and 3 is quite good, but not as good as 1.

No. 1 is the best, and 2 and 3 are about equal. 3 is a better all around movie, but I thought the part in 2 where they go back to 1955 was excellent, and made up for the abortion that was the beginning and middle of the movie. And the ending was great. "No Doc, it's me. It's Marty! I'm back, I'm back from the future..."

Can't speak.  Figuratively or literally.

Game: Crap, Ooof, a-ha!, woot!, HELL YEAH!! Shit...  SHIT!

Most memorable hockey game I'll ever attend in my life.  Was a fantastic present.  But... SHIT!

I felt a little bad for you guys when the Pens went up 2-0. But by the time overtime started I had completely lost that feeling, which slowly turned to jealousy when you actually got to see almost two full games of Stanley Cup hockey.

I'm wondering how the long game 5 will affect Game 6. Will the younger players of the Pens bounce back quicker? Will the experience of the Red Wings give them a clear advantage? Or will both teams be exhausted and the goalies take over?

Yeah, I don't know... the young guys on the Pens definitely seemed gassed a lot sooner than the 'old' guys on the Red Wings.  You watch Lidstrom, there's a guy who knows how to not waste energy... his movement all seems so laid back, but he's always where he needs to be, and always making the play he needs to make.  It doesn't ever seem like he gets wound up or flails around.  The Penguins really seemed to dig deep to pull out the energy there at the end, whereas the Wings didn't seem particularly phased by the length of the game... fat lot of good it did them. smile

Especially in the first and third overtimes, when the teams switched benches and had the long distance to go to get a shift change. The Red Wings dominated those periods for long stretches and the Pens just could not get the puck deep enough to get their men off the ice. Either one of the coaches or one of the announcers said that in a game like that they try to shorten the shifts to 20 to 25 seconds, but some of the Penguin players were out there for seemingly several minutes at a time. I was positive the Red Wings were going to score in the third off of a bad shift change or just exhaustion from the defense...

Man this series has just been crazy. I have not seen two teams go at it like this in quite awhile, but then again I live in Arizona.

It has been a great series, at least the last couple games. Games 1 and 2 we saw the other level Detroit can play at, and Pittsburgh had no answers. But I think they have answered and are playing as good as they can, and are leaving it all on the ice. Detroit certainly has as well, and games 3-5 have been classics.

Even assuming the Red Wings win in Game 6 or Game 7 (which they should), there will be no regret from this Pens fan. I'm glad that I have been able to see such a good series.
