561  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bioshock pc review...pc better on: August 20, 2007, 07:27:29 PM
Just bought a 5800+ AMD Dual core and 8800 gtx card so I'm not sure which one either.  I use steam and could be playing at midnight but it is a hard decision to make.
562  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Hot Shots Golf 5 Impressions on: August 20, 2007, 07:16:53 PM
Well I imported the Minna Golf 5(Hot Shots Golf 5) from playasia and it is really good.

The graphics are really nice.  The camera angles are are really cool as well.

There is a new shot mechanic based on the click method.  You have to watch the backswing and click that for power then you have to click
again right when you hit the ball.  On putting you see a ball go out and then click when it reaches the distance you think will sink the put.  It
does offer a little more difficulty. 

There is still not an option to turn off the talking of the caddies and characters which is bad in my opinion but they are not as bad as HSG4 so I
can live with that.

If you can't wait till it gets out over here it is a good game to import due to numbers being universal.  If you get the asia version they send you an
english booklet of the menus.

564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hold a tick...GH: Rocks the 80s Warning on: July 25, 2007, 03:35:32 AM
I concur I was really disappointed by this game.  The covers just had no life in them and some of the songs were missing parts.  Metal Health no solo missing some notes in Play with me.

There were about 8 songs that I liked and would play again but the others just bad no fun at all.  I guess all energy into Rock Band.
565  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NFL 2K8. on: July 20, 2007, 02:31:19 PM
Love the game but I havent had an offensive blowout yet.  I have played about 6 games and my highest score was 21 so the defense is very good.

I really need to add more plays to my playbook.  There are so many plays in there it will probably take some time to pick and get rid of the ones I will use.
If you haven't looked at the playbooks yet get ready.

566  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fess up - who bought Bomberman XBLA? on: July 19, 2007, 02:02:20 PM
Bought it and played for around an hour and it was very fun.  I didn't win one match but hopefully will get better.  I hope a lot of GT's get this game as it is very fun  and is a blast mp.

567  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NFL 2K8. on: July 16, 2007, 02:01:28 PM
Not sure why people are saying the Single player is not that great.  You make up your teams of different all-stars and play 16 games with them.  Once that is done I believe that I would probably like to try other combinations of people and that is why there is no franchise mode but it should still be great the only downside is the stat keeping from multiple seasons but again these are the all time greats so I still think it will be great.
 
Madden is in development every year while 2k was not being worked on until a year or so ago so it really isn't fair to compare the two since 2k basically is 3 years behind.  If they had been working on this for 3 years I can't imagine how great this game would be.  Hopefully they make enough money to do this again and we
can see how much it will improve.

But Dark_Alex the custom firmware person has quit the scene so no more of his custom firmware.

Does this mean I wont be able to play games above 3.4?
569  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Trackmania Evolved Impressions on: June 28, 2007, 06:02:17 PM
Wow I got this game through Steam and I must say it is a great little race game.  The graphics are great especially the water and the gameplay is very addictive.

I never played any of the other Trackmania games so this was a refreshing experience.   I haven't tried to create my own tracks yet but it looks to be fun.

570  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Own Lumines? Now you can totally hack your PSP with it! on: June 28, 2007, 06:00:09 PM
I got the custom firmware last night and was up until 2 playing with it.

I backed up some of my games and put them on my memory stick and that in itself is worth it.  The speed increase and not having to lug around all my games is a great thing.

There was no loading at all for Hot Shots Golf, just like playing a DS games.


Go PSP.

572  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: DiRT [360/PS3/PC] Impressions on: June 21, 2007, 02:36:46 PM
Love the game and the graphics awesome.

Finished the 1st Tier and I love the different tracks.  I like Forza but just not enough tracks plus I like getting Dirty.


573  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/18) on: June 18, 2007, 07:53:57 PM
Repurchase Resident Evil 4.  Never played ps2 version so at least get to see some new content.

DIRT.  Can't wait for this.  I like Forza 2 but I love off road racing so it should be great.



574  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Prince of Persia Classic: Anyone Get it? on: June 13, 2007, 06:55:16 PM
Well I couldn't resist and remember you can always make more money.

I bought it at lunch and got to play for about 20 minutes.

The gameplay graphics are really nice and the prince animates well.  The cutscenes were ok but I think they could have been better. Also there is no sound during them. 

The controls are pretty good and responsive.  I didn't make too many mistakes.  It does do little things that are nice.  If you are a little under a ledge he will backup a little before jumping so he will grab the ledge instead of just jumping up and doing nothing.  The swordplay is nice and has a nice matrix effect when you parry an attack.  Also if your swords meet you have to button press x to win the battle and there are different animations when you land the killing blow on your enemy.

The sound is where I am a little disappointed.  Maybe just a childhood memory but when you were sliced by the blades, punctured by the spikes, or flattened by  the dungeon floor, the sound effects were gruesome.  They just don't have the punch in this version.  I am going to play the original to the original to check.

Overall it is a good purchase for me $10 is a little steep but to relive a childhood memory, I actually beat this game as a kid, it does fine. 
575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Car porn (Forza 2) on: June 07, 2007, 05:34:57 AM
Well been working on my own South Park Cars and have I think my Cartman Policeman ready to go after about 3 hours of work.  I just need a car that can double as a Police Car then I am ready.
I have also been working on Butters I have the head now need to work on the body.

I really blow online. I don't know if I cause a lot of crashes or if I'm just involved in a lot. Either way, it's ugly when I'm on the track near another car.

I also can't seem to keep up with anyone but the back of the pack when we play online. Is it my car or my shitty driving skills?

I don't know but we crashed quite a bit on Friday or Saturday not sure which.

Tomb Raider Anniversary is very temping, but I really can't decide on which system I should get it for; PS2 or PC. I played the original and it's 2 sequels on the PC, but I enjoyed the controls on the XBox version of TR: Legends better than any of these. Decisions....decisions...

If you have the 360 pc wireless adapter you can use your 360 controller for the pc and the game supports it.
578  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap 6-4-2007 on: June 04, 2007, 02:27:35 PM
Played alot of Forza2.  Great game.  Got my wheel got my cockpit and roaring to go.  The only problem is if you have the wheel and you have a controller you can't do anything with the controller.  I would like to customize my car but unless I unplug my wheel the controller will not control anything.

Played about 2 hours of Guitar Hero 2.  Trying to 5 star on Hard but the last 2 sections are rough.

I finally found Crush for the PSP and got to play around with that.  It is a nice and new puzzle game.  I played for about an hour and I took a small nap and was trying to crush things in my dreams so it is that type of game.

Got a girl I've been seeing to play Lego Star Wars 2 for 360. She never really played games before and did okay.  Double jumping onto platforms was very hard though.  I kept saying double jump double jump and press forward.  She did watch and help my play Indigo Prophecy for about 2 hours so that is good.

I am really trying to get into Dragon Quest 8.  I am at the first quest and keep dying.  It starts out very hard for some reason I have deid like 5 times. Maybe it's just me but man.

And finally I started  Final Fantasy XII.  Good looking game just hope it keeps my interest. 

I had a great gaming weekend just need more time to play games.  Sorry work.....
579  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Car porn (Forza 2) on: June 01, 2007, 06:50:19 PM
I hope to get on tonight as well.  I got my playseat in today and set it up during lunch only got to race once but what a blast.

Forza2 with wheel and seat Awesome!!!

Assuming I can get ePSXe running, I'll be re-starting FFVII as well.

I used to use ePSXe but a new one came out that is very impressive and easy to use.  You don't have to configure plugins and it works great and I haven't had any trouble setting it up.   Also when the window is out of focus the cpu consumption is really really low, which is good so when you use it at work you can switch when someone comes and your pc will not be bogged down.  (not that I do that).

I just bought the Playseat Evolution racing chair so probably alot of Forza 2 and other racing games.

in the meantime, i still have the expert career to keep me busy.  i started out making pretty good progress, but i've hit a temporary wall with Freya.  my fingers just don't want to do that repeated G-O-YB right now...

Freya is a stumbling block.  That sequence is a killer.  One hint try to just play the O-YB forget the Green and you should make it through without failing. 
583  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Eternal Sonata Preview on: May 16, 2007, 06:01:51 PM
That was a good demo and I will be picking up that game.

I like the combat even though it is at the easy stage right now.  Moving and attacking is good to me.

The graphics are great as well.  Have you been to the flower garden? That was a beautiful place.

584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS2 Guitar Hero on a PS3? on: April 26, 2007, 08:13:14 PM
They work except for the whammy bar it does not work so you can play but not to it's full potential.
585  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero on PS3!!!!! on: April 19, 2007, 11:32:04 PM
Well almost works.  I have the ps2 adapter and everything works except the Whammy bar.  So not as great as I would have hoped.  I have tried the wired and wireless guitar,
 sooooooo close but no cigar.
586  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero on PS3!!!!! but no Whammy on: April 19, 2007, 11:27:50 PM
Guitar hero finally works on PS3 with the latest update.  So get out there and rock.



587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Guitar Hero II on: April 06, 2007, 09:14:02 PM
Just read that the 360 guitar works in Windows.  So if you have frets on fire that will now work.  I can see many programs to hopefully use this so we can have some great user content in the future..

Played mine last night and my whammy bar is messing up.  Sometimes it registers other times it doesn't so hopefully I can return it and get another one.

590  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Guitar Hero II on: April 03, 2007, 01:43:07 PM
Well picked it up last night from walmart had to goto another one because the people at the first were very rude but anyway there were 2 other people waiting so I got home about 12:30 and fired it up.   

The graphics are awesome the lighting effects are well done and I like it.  There are slight pauses in the menu's every once in a while no problem just noticeable.

The audio is what I was really interested in and it did sound good although I couldn't turn it up like I wanted(people sleeping).  I like 5.1 DD. 

The guitar.  At first I didn't like it.  The second strap holder is underneath the fretboard so the guitar doesn't sit well vertically it is kind of at an angle and I had trouble at first.  But after about 30 min I started to like it.  I has a longer body that might right hand can lean on so I can balance the guitar better.  The whammy bar I have mixed feelings.  It doesn't seem to register unless you pull it all the way down, it works but not like I am used to.  It did stay where I left it so that was good.  The start and select are small and a little tough to hit when you need to pause but probably get used to that too.  I like the fret buttons and was able to hit some solos that I had trouble with in ps2.  I play with a pick and it felt fine. 

I only got to play about 5 of the new songs and they are okay I am not to the ones that I really want to play.  Billion dollar babies was my favorite so far.  I unlocked all the bonus songs and played the 2 new ones they are pretty good. 

The achievements are nice but I know I wont get all of them.  Play Jordan on expert with 5 stars.  No way.

The leaderboards are going to be awesome and can't wait for more friends to get on there for some competition.  I was the only one on my friends leaderboard so I was number one for awhile.  Yes....

Can't wait for the download-able songs. 


Any questions let me know.

591  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Guitar Hero II on: April 02, 2007, 06:03:29 PM
It is a big step up from the ps2 version on the audio front.  5.1 vs pro logic is a big thing to me and also not have to constantly go into the options and set progressive scan every time I boot up the game. 
592  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Puzzle Quest for DS/PSP on: March 22, 2007, 04:14:03 PM
Went to their forums and read a little.  It seems they put a bug fix in at the last minute that broke that feature on the PSP.  Companions give you certain advantages when battling like -10 against undead so you wont get that added effect.  Not that big of deal but they are upset over that and not sure how to get a patch to fix that. 

593  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Puzzle Quest for DS/PSP on: March 22, 2007, 02:22:55 PM
Got it for the DS and it is fine.  I use the tap method and haven't had any mishaps at all.  The graphics are a bit weak, they could have done a better job but it will do. 

You can press the left and right shoulder buttons and it will show you and your opponent's armor and weapons. 
 
594  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyon heard anything good about Earth Defense Force (360)? on: March 20, 2007, 01:49:59 PM
There was a good video of it on GS Live one week.  Basically you run around and shoot big aliens.  You can destroy big skyscrapers and other buildings.  there are around 4 vehicles including a Mech.  There are a ton of weapons as well.  You will fight a lot of big ants though.  But it is constant action with huge fights.

God of War 2
Motorstorm
Tiger Woods Wii

Busy weekend with Basketball so hopefully get some game time in.
596  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tiger Woods - Wii on: March 14, 2007, 08:43:27 PM
I just wonder what Guitar Hero on the Wii will use.

I don't know why TW didn't do the 1:1 on the golf swing.  Is it that hard to do or were they being rushed to get this out.  I did have one shot where I had about 25 yards to pin and my club would go 46 y and it was a little difficult to get it to swing about half power.  Hopefully practice will really help and I wonder if the Wii setup really impacts this as well.  Also why didn't the gamespot review mention the controls more.  IGN focused mainly on that and GS review did a little but not as indepth as Ign. 

597  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tiger Woods - Wii on: March 14, 2007, 07:02:54 PM
I tried to do my regular swing with 2 hands and  I noticed as soon as I started on my back swing the blue arc appeared meaning hook and of course I hooked it.  My friend was slicing a lot until he started using one hand and did a little better.  So I am not sure what I am doing wrong.  Since I only had a little time with it I didn't get to try the tutorial so probably all my impressions are useless.  But I did like what I tried it is going to be a challenge and that is what I always wanted from TW. 

I tried the pro golf game with the gloves and the string attached and it worked okay but I think the Wii will out do that by a great deal.  I wish there was someway to put the controller in a golf club kind of thing to get the full experience. 


598  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tiger Woods - Wii on: March 14, 2007, 06:22:42 PM
Played for about 15 minutes at lunch and......

The golf swing was pretty good but I need to adjust my sensor bar.  Had a friend play and watched his swing and it did follow it on his first swings then on his last shots he took his back swing and when he stopped the golfer on screen was already on his down swing and was finished by the time my friend started down.  My friends wasn't in the same position on every swing so I think it is my sensor bar position.  I usually play on my recliner and it works well there but when I stand up I do have some problems on other games so I don't think it was TW.  We were playing on advance and were slicing and hooking a lot so it is very promising to me.  I will do some setup work tonight and let you know the results later hopefully.

The graphics are not that great.  Jaggies all over the place but not that big of deal to me.
599  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GoW 2 already on warez sites on: February 22, 2007, 03:28:07 PM
I went on the Torrent sites and looked and there is only the GOW 2 demo out there, which you can get if you preorder the game so I don't think it has leaked yet.
600  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Guitar Hero II on: February 14, 2007, 09:53:57 PM
Definately in. Have the ps2 version and 3 guitars(one wireless).  I want the 10 extra songs plus all the songs will be in 5.1 surround sound not pro logic. 
Also it might not have online play but it does have leaderboards and you can filter the leaderboards to your friends so you can still have competion, just set up a chat and play the song at the same time.
