I'd have to say that I liked the SNES versions of those Koei games. I used to play them a lot. Used also fall asleep while playing those a lot at 3am... I was awesome at Gemfire, Ghengis Khan, any 3 sagas game, Uncharted Waters and it's sequel New Horizons(one of the best Pirate games evar!) Yeah I'd say you've got some good ones, you need to find PTO as well and some Shonobunga's games as well.

man I can't wait for virtual console, Koei better be one board...MmmMmm new Horizons... I still play that from time to time on my PC.


Yea new horizons was awesome I lost alot of hours playing that game.

I have not discussed this recently with TML, but I believe our original idea was to start either one week prior to or the day of the regular season. Roster update will certainly come, but I think it makes little sense to wait on the off chance that EA delays it quite a bit. If we play with inaccurate rosters for part of the season, so be it. Anyways, hopeflly TML will decide shortly.

I'm ready to go anytime guys just say the word icon_biggrin

I've played both versions of the demo.  The 360 version looks much better to me.  Plus the controls on the 360 are much more intuitive in my opinion.  I may be in the minority, but I liked the Saints Row demo better.

I'm with you will be picking up Saints row this week just cause a rental at best.

Wow, I knew we were getting close to breaking the DVD9 format's 9gb limitations, but this close?

Quote
Schneider offered some distinguishing stats (which he called MTV News on Tuesday to further clarify). The game, he said, currently takes up 22 Gigabytes of memory on a Blu-Ray disc, the new disc format supported by the PS3 that is one-half of a VHS-vs.-Betamax format war erupting between tech companies throughout the year. While the music and vocals in "Resistance" take up only about 1 Gigabyte of disc space, graphics, level data and programming code occupy most of the remaining 21.

"We're going to fit more on a Blu-Ray disc than you could on an HD DVD," he said, referring to the competing format, which in its most basic discs can't hold more than 15 GB. More numbers: 40-player online matches at launch; 60 levels of player progression while playing online; two-player offline co-op. Phillips promised better, deeper support than any Xbox Live launch title.

Connect your 360 directly to your modem, ie, bypass your router entirely.

Try playing then.  If it doesn't work, it's a problem with some combination of your modem, your 360, your ISP, and/or XBox Live.

If it works, well, the 360 hates your router.

My brother's 360 is connected to a router which serves two other computers on top of the 360.  Chromehounds will sometimes thrash and whine and cause drops from XBL, but it's not in any kind of pattern or frequency that would suggest a problem.

 Sorry I took so long to respond. You nailed it. I removed the router out of the picture and all good! icon_biggrin So, I wonder if that is the same fix for you Calvin. What`s your setup like? I`ll check back sooner this time, and thx for the help guys. I thought it might be that but since the router is on the xbox360 compatible list...and it worked fine with my original xbox... saywhat. So who knows. I`m looking into updating my router too, even though the firmware updates disappeared from dlinks site...any ideas there?

What dlink router model do you have mine is the DI-604 I believe.

1107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ea response to madden 360 fatigue issue off of Os sports on: August 17, 2006, 11:29:39 PM
August 17, 7:20p EDT

I just got off the phone with Michael Johnson of EA Tiburon, and he informed me that the Madden team recognizes the lack-of-fatigue issue in Madden NFL 07 for the Xbox 360, and let me know that a patch is in the offing.

We'll have more information on the details tomorrow, but at the moment, we know that the patch will be available on Xbox Live, and that creating it is the design team's highest priority.

I'll update this thread as I receive more information

Well, I have had problems with my 360 virtually from day 1 (which was about two weeks into launch)-Madden would crash, NFS:MW would crash occasionally. GRAW was a huge offender. I went through-I think-three copies of GRAW before I found one that wouldn't crash constantly. Top Spin 2 was also sometimes impossible to play because of crashes. Even demos will crash. I hate to admit it, but I am tempted to do UB's shady target idea, although I feel like I should try to find a legit way to get it fixed. I think the amount MS is charging is absurd for a product that they shipped broken.

They charge $50 for a two year warranty.  That is better than the price of the EB/Best Buy etc coverages.

Can you purchase the 50$ warranty after the fact? And who covers shipping?

As far as I know, yes you can and MS covers shipping.
I can't keep my HDD though, right Arkon? And also, how long does this usually take and where can you purchase it from? Thanks!

You keep your HDD.  The tech should explicitly tell you, you only ship back the system, no HDD no cables, no controllers.  My first system was turned around in 5 days.  That has slowed some from launch.  At launch they would ship a prepaid box overnight, now it comes 3 day service, sometimes faster.  The standard turnaround time is 10 business days now.  I would call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX and ask about the warranty.  Just say you don't have the paperwork from the box but would like to purchase the coverage.

Thanks Arkon, its either that or screw some shop over-well, I know they dont actually lose a dime on it, but I still feel bad doing it.

The best thing about the Microsoft warranty is I believe they cover your accessories too oops accidently sat on my headset get a new one controller fails get a new one.

Quote from: "papasmurff"
One thing that I am noticing when I play is that we need to stick together more.  There have been a couple of times that the commander has sent me, the heavy gunner, out by myself to grab coms.  Sure it is nice to try and flank enemies, but we are starting to get to that point where the AI is loaded with bigger and better guns and will rip you appart if they catch you out on your own.  It is much easier when you have two or three people together working on a hound than just one.  Here is an idea.  If we are going to split up, split up into two pairs of people, (the scout and NA usually do their own thing) like a heavy and a soldier or soldier and defender.  That way the groups can work together and still be able to stategically work with the other pair to flank or assist.  Also we need to ID what we are fighting, heavy gunners/artillary need to be delt with first along with the AI and their stupid Assult rifles.  The scout and NA are good targets but in the world or what will hurt us the most, it is going to be those two groups.  Just random thoughts.  Let me know what you think!!  Oh and I will be on around 8 CST for a couple of hours


Good idea Papasmurff kind of like having a wingman mech lol.
