4361  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Spiderman Sells 2 million on: July 07, 2004, 07:49:39 PM
Isn't that a little misleading?

It said it shipped 2 million, not all 2million have been bought.  Or are they counting that as stores bought 2 million?
4362  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden/ESPN NFL on: July 06, 2004, 02:59:20 AM
You can always skip past the cutscenes if you don't enjoy them .  I don't really care for Suzy either, but I welcome the presentation style that most games can't even touch
4363  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden/ESPN NFL on: July 05, 2004, 09:05:05 PM
I think why people enjoyed ESPN moreso than Madden because ESPN brought something new, that Madden hasn't done.  

ESPN did an excellent job with the presentation, it was like watching a game on ESPN.  But that's not the sole reason why people like ESPN.  Online is one key feature that up until now, Madden didn't have.

Espn felt played and looked better than Madden.   Everything looked incredible realistic, while Madden wasn't as pretty.  

Gameplay, ESPN had some bugs, tackling issues and AI were two components that really brought down the game.  Apparently it's fixed this year.  

I do agree that Madden had a better play book, and it looks like they will again this year.

Madden has become stale over the years, and when they added the owners mode last year, it really didn't make it any better.  Who wants to sell hot dogs.  I prefer ESPN's franchise mode, where what you do effects your game.  

Madden looks incredibly good this year, especially with it's revamped defense, but ESPN was the king of football last year, and with the $20 price tag, it  looks like it will be just as good if not better than last years.

All I ask, is that people who are signing up to play, realize it's a commitment, and if you are flaky, you are not hurting just you, you are ruining the fun of others.   Last year was really frustrating and I had serious reservations of joining this, the only saving grace is that it's a bracket, and it's not too long.  I'd love to do a league, but from past experiences (ESPN NFL, and Links) those didn't last long.  

So I reiterate, if you are going to join, please think about the longterm.

Quote from: "AgtFox"
Can I just say that Jeff Gerstmann is a tool?  He gave the game a 7.2...way too low in my opinion.  Right now I'd probably put it in the 80s, maybe low 90.  The graphics aren't the best, but when you look at the sheer size of what you can see with no loading you begin to respect the graphics for what they are.

Anyway, Gerstmann is the worst Gamespot reviewer.  He's the one that famously gave Shenmue a bad score, GS got a bunch of hate mail and then someone else had to do a new review of it and Gerstmann's review went to vapor...never to be seen again.  I just wish Gamespot had a way to look up reviews via writer, I want to see Gerstmann's list.  He has been spot on at times, but he has some glaringly bad reviews from a score perspective.

Well I do agree about the repetitiveness of the sidequests.  I have a feeling the mainquests will be short, and all you have left is the sidequests are mostly the same.    However I do think they scored it too low, I'd give it a low 8

Alright just finished this today. Wow what an amazing game. Finally a game unlike Beyond Good and Evil or Far Cry that actually has an ending. Why can't developers offer closure then just ending it. Stupid

I loved being in that mech, that was so much fun, and the dialoge the mech gives is hilarious.

I wish there was an option about not wanting to expand, so here is my vote for that smile

I personally think you should wait and focus on features that are missing.  (Trading Forum features, putting next and back arrows on your screenshot pages) stuff like that.
4382  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden: PC or Xbox? on: June 17, 2004, 05:21:54 PM
I never had any problems with the controls.  I had a MS Sidewinder that worked great before they introduced the analog features.  Then I bought the Logitech Dual Analog pad, and that turned out to be crapped, but Madden 2003 worked great on it.  When MVP 2004 came out the dual analogs started giving me trouble, turns out there's a known defect.  So I ended up getting a Saitek P800 and that worked great with MVP.  

I'm not worried with the controls.  Also my tv and xbox is in my room so I'll still be on my computer chair Tongue    

This will be my first year not buying madden for the PC.  I've owned Madden every year of it's existence on the PC.  I'm not sure why I'm buying ESPN and Madden, but because ESPN is so cheap, and with this coupon applying to Madden it's like getting 2 games for the price of 1.
4383  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden: PC or Xbox? on: June 17, 2004, 03:35:43 PM
Although I haven't owned madden on the xbox, I've played it before, and I've always felt the PC version to be better.  But from what I'm hearing, both versions are pretty much the same as far as feature wise.
4384  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden: PC or Xbox? on: June 17, 2004, 03:11:07 PM
More importantly, I'm already getting ESPN again this year as my primary football game.  

However I still enjoy Madden (well I didn't like last year's version)

I received a $15 coupon for my upcoming birthday next week from EA Store.  I can the PC version for $24 after the coupon, or get the Xbox version for $34 after the coupon.  

I've never owned madden on my xbox, because the PC looks a lot better.  But being able to play on Live is much simpler than the EA online crap that it is.  However ESPN is live enabled, and I can always rely on that.

Are there any significant differences from the PC to xbox besides graphics?  

I'm thinking of getting the xbox because the PC is selling for $39 and eventually it will go down to $29.  If I don't like the xbox I can always trade or sell it.

4386  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Chronicles of Riddick Movie on: June 12, 2004, 06:57:08 AM
It's a prequel

And I disagree about this statement...

Quote
If you haven't seen Pitch Black, you might find yourself a little lost on this one.


This movie was so different from PB, i think anyone could just watch it without knowing  anything about the other movie.  The only similarities of the two is that Riddick has eyeshine, and that's about it.


I do have a question...

When riddick went into Necropolis and he was in that chamber where the pools of silver liquid was reading his mind (I guess that's what they were doing) you saw some images of Pitch Black (those aliens)  if this is a prequel, why is that in there?  Were they looking into the future?

I'd consider it if they had a better selection on DVDs.  Right now, I'm more interested in DVD's then games, because games takes me longer to finish.  I don't mind holding onto a game for a month.  That's only $15 worth (saves me $35 a month), but dvd's I can rent how many I want for $15 at netflix.

4394  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is Xbox ruining PC gaming? on: June 07, 2004, 11:07:19 PM
I think the Xbox supplements my gaming experience.  But PC still is my main platform.  

I think it matters by what types of games you are into.  If you're into FPS games, RTS, and even RPG's, PC is probably the way to go.  But if you are only into Sports, Action-Fighting games, and racing games, Consoles are the way to go.

Luckily, my tastes are fairly broad, and so is my credit card debt Tongue.  I tend to only play sports/racing games for xbox, and everything else on PC.


I don't think xbox is killing pc gaming, I think it supplements it, depending on the person's taste.

But that's just based on me, how does it effect overall?  I think it took away some developers who were mainly for PC, and gave us the results of bad console ports (DX, HALO, and others)

Maybe with this new XNA from microsoft, that will free up time and let developers be able to customize for each platform, without costing any extra money and time.

The only thing that is bugging me, is the saves.  There's too many of them.  Makes the game too easy.  I wish I started over earlier and played on the higher difficulty, but I dont' want to start over now.    I guess i can just skip save points
4397  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chronicles of Riddick? on: June 06, 2004, 01:14:23 AM
Lockdown.

I've always been against FPS games on consoles.  They simply don't work well.  Halo sucked on the console, RCTW sucked on console, Breakdown extremely sucked on the console (well it was only for the console, but you get my point)

Riddick, is a different story.  The controls are easy to use.  Shooting can be a little difficult as far as aiming, but luckily you don't have to shoot your way through the whole game (at least from what I've played)

If I can play this game without any problems, so can you.

So you're saying that we can't draw judgments from what id shows them at E3 and from what id tells us?

Quote from: "dandylife"
Either way, they're stupid.


Sounds like you already formed an opinion about the game from the information you've received.  Why can't Xbox Nation?


I don't see where you can claim that dandylife already formed an opinion of the game when he didn't say anything about the game.  He simply stated that it's pretty unfair to judge a game that is not even finished.
