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.

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. 

563  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lunar Knights "one of the finest games on DS." 1UP review on: February 08, 2007, 03:17:42 PM
Played for about 30 minutes last night and I really like it.  The only thing that bugs me so far is the control. You only move 8 directions and sometimes the pad doesn't respond to my liking but I am getting used to it.  The graphics and combat are really fun I only stopped playing because it was really late and I needed sleep.

564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap 29/Jan/07 on: January 29, 2007, 03:35:35 PM
Played Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero 2 for quite awhile I still can't finish Freebird, Six, and Jordan on expert though.  I rented FEAR for the 360 and I am loving it.  It really is a good game but the coridoor crawling is getting a little old, too bad there are not more environments.  The action is good and the story decent.
Played about 2 hours of Metroid Prime and then about an hour of Jewel Quest Solitaire.  

565  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pirates PSP on: January 25, 2007, 07:34:32 PM
Got it yesterday and played around for about 30 minutes.  I have played the pc version and it is a pretty good port.

The graphics are good although a little small while on the seas.  The cutscenes and the inside locals are really sharp.  When sailing the ship the graphics are a bit small but well done.  I have only seen the lightning cloud pass by once but that was really cool.
The map is on the start button and is very crisp and easy to read.

The loading times are very good but when you are in a sword fight and you win it loads(about 2 seconds) to show you sending your opponent going over the rail, which is not much but a little annoying.  You can save at anytime which is great. 

Controlling the ship is a little tricky with the analog stick so I usually use the dpad and it works quite well. I haven't done any land battles yet so I will update impressions later when I get more playing time.

Overall it is a very polished game and I like it alot.

From interviews they say there our 12 tracks, and that they are using some from the previous SSX games.  So how long are these tracks?

I was wrong with my earlier post about the guitar it does shut off after 2 minutes of inactvity so says a review so I will see if my batteries are not dead.
568  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero II 360 Info!! on: January 11, 2007, 03:09:41 PM
I purchased the Red Octane Wireless guitar and it has worked flawless for me.  It is easy to setup and I haven't noticed any lag whatsoever.  The strum bar is quieter as well.  The only 'bad' thing is there is an on/off button and if you forget to turn if off it will run your batteries down, wish it could detect no usage after 5 min and then shut off auto.

I downloaded the demo but can't drive.  It shows me racing from a front view but none of my controller buttons work.  I can't accelerate or anything. Anyone else?

Picked this up and I like it so far.  I have it on the ds but I like the PSP layout much more.  I'm am not good at remembering cards and on the DS the computer would make a move and something big would happen and I wouldn't know what happened until I went to their graveyard.

I also like there is a story and not just dueling.
572  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii Search... on: November 27, 2006, 12:28:30 AM
I went at 6:30 and was the 6th person in line.  About 8:00 manager came out and gave us tickets so that was good.  The final ticket was given away about 8:30.  Got some games and played it and like it.
573  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist: Thanksgiving Edition on: November 22, 2006, 03:32:12 PM
Have to work Friday so only 2 day weekend but I am going to try and beat Freebird on GH2 Expert.  Finish
GOW for the second time, get a bigger garden in Viva Pinata, and take down some tango's on Rainbow Six. 
I might if pressured bust some caps in some German's as well.  Early Friday going to try and get a
Wii.

I will be up later tonight as well around 9:30c
575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii Launch Thread on: November 13, 2006, 10:48:36 PM
For a console designed to bring in non-gamers the whole different controller options is really crazy,  I need a gamecube controller, the vc controller, the wii controller.  It just seems a bit confusing for those that will be new to gaming. 

I am excited and want to get one, I just wonder about the little things.



576  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap 13/Nov/06 on: November 13, 2006, 03:30:06 PM
Beat GOW last night.
Lack 3 songs on GH2 on expert mode.
Played about 3 hours of COD3.
577  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]Gears of War-Impressions on: November 08, 2006, 04:51:26 AM
I played the single player for about an hour and meh it was okay.  The graphics were good and everything but it just wasn't clicking.  So I tried some multiplayer a little better alot of fun even though I didn't know any of the guys.  Then I went and played GH2 for about an hour then picked up GOW again and did the single player co-op over live and man did that make a difference.  The game is a lot better if you play coop you can crank up the level and have a blast. 
578  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]Gears of War-Impressions on: November 07, 2006, 09:04:17 PM
The district mgr for our game store in Little Rock drove to Memphis to pick up the game so we got it around
1:30.  Too bad my lunch was over then so I will hopefully get to play at 5:03.

579  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero II Impressions - (spoiler: it kicks ass) on: November 07, 2006, 02:33:51 AM
I do slide my pinky from the 5th to the 4th and that is the only way that I can do it.  I am on the last tier now, not sure how I passed some of those songs though.  If you had a hard time with expert on the first GH I don't think you have much chance on this one unless you practice practice practice.
580  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero II Impressions - (spoiler: it kicks ass) on: November 06, 2006, 08:05:39 PM
The 1-5-4 is nothing compared to the 1-5-34.  It doesn't sound like much but man adding that 3rd button and having to make a chord is just wrong.  I tried to cheat and just hit the 5-34 skipping the 1 but it goes on for so long that my meter puttered out before it ended.

Freya on expert is extremely hard and no there are no hammer on's and pull offs.  Here is how is goes, 1st button then the 5th button then the third and fourth together then repeat. This goes on about 10 times then another hard section then back to this for about 10 - 15 seconds.  It is brutal.  I went into practice mode on that stretch for about 20 minutes and still had trouble.  I kept a full star power and made it through that section after 4 tries. 

I beat the hard mode Saturday night and played the bonus songs Sun morning.  Most of the bonus songs I like but there are about 3 that are real stinkers,  the Made in Mexico song is one of the worst songs I have ever heard.

I am currently on expert mode and am on the 6th tier.  Expert is alot harder then hard mode.  Hard mode is pretty easy if you've played GH before and are pretty good at it.  I don't think the hard mode prepares you very much for expert though. 

The practice mode is good but I wish that you could put it on continuous mode.  You select the parts you want to play then the speed but once you finish it goes back into the menu and you can click replay but I wish you could put a number or it would just loop for that amount or increase the speed automatically then play it again.  Not a fan of menu's.

The progressive scan option, you have to turn it on everytime you play the game.  The widescreen option stays once selected but progressive doesn't, just a minor gripe. The graphics are great with progressive scan they are very crisp and detailed.

I tried with HDL and in the cutscenes the voice skips alot, so much better with the CD.
584  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero II preview on: October 30, 2006, 07:52:30 PM
I got to play Trogdor and it is very good.  Actually I got to play about 30 songs and I just can't wait for it next week. 
585  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero 2 Tracks! on: October 25, 2006, 04:12:49 AM
All the bonus songs have been leaked.  Head over to the official game website and forum to check them out.
586  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap 23/Oct/06 on: October 23, 2006, 04:52:14 PM
I have this week off so I hopefully will be able to beat many games.

Tiger Woods 2007 -  About 4 hours and I really like it.  The presentation is very good and the gameplay so far is not too easy.
Bully -  2 Hours.  So far pretty good.
Contact - Hour.  Okay pretty interesting story and neat idea.
Okami - 4 hours.  20 hours in and still really enjoying the game definately going to finish this one.
Price of Persia 3 -  4 hours.  I tried to go back and play POP 2 but just grew tiresome of not being albe to find my way around.  So far this one is looking good.
GTA San Andreas - 4 hours.  Trying to finally finish this game.

Guitar Hero -  3 hours.  Gotta keep my skill up,  TWO MORE WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap 2/Oct/06 on: October 02, 2006, 10:46:51 PM
Played about 8 hours of Okami.

Played about 8 hours of God of War and beat it finally.  That is one awesome game.

Played 4 hours of Saints Row.  I really like this game but it is getting hard.

Played 1 hour of Guitar Hero 2 demo. 


Good weekend of gaming.
588  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap: What'd You Play? 25/Sep/06 on: September 25, 2006, 03:20:30 PM
Played about 10 hours of Okami and about 6 hours of Saints Row.  Then for some reason late last night I put in about 30 min on Zelda Ocarina of Time and an hour of Metroid Prime(GC). 

I just got a new HDTV so had to try those last 2 out.

589  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Okami impressions on: September 21, 2006, 02:30:44 PM
Played for about an hour and a half and I am really enjoying the game.  

The graphics do look good on a widescreen HDTV. The art style is really impressive and the colors really stand out.  

There are 2 camera angles one close up and one far away.  The close up camera is okay but I found that when I used it I was weaving alot as I was running, if you hit the L1 button the camera backs out and it made running long distances easier.  You manually control the camera as well and I have had no other problems with it so far.

The combat so far isn't too deep and not really that hard but it is still good.  It's fun to knock them in the air then slash them with your brush and watch the body be split in half then fall to the ground.  Controling the brush is very easy and I hope they use it alot for the puzzles because there are some neat things that can be done with it.  

The only gripe I have is the "talking" of the characters.  They use gibberish that is quite annoying, I wish they had just the text.  It isn't that much of a distraction but I just don't care for it.    The dialog is well written and funny(ie. furball).    




  


 
590  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anybody get Madden on the PSP? on: August 25, 2006, 08:58:33 PM
I went to CC today and picked up the 360 version then just as I was about to pay I got the PSP version as well.  The 360 version locked up after playing about 10 minutes, arghhhhhh, same thing with NCAA so my 360 is off to get fixed.  I then went to work with the PSP version unopened and debating.

Well after 30 min couldn't help myself and opened the PSP version and was pleasantly surprised.

Graphics -
Awesome, they are better than PS2 to me, crisp and clear. 

Presentation -
Not sure about last year but it is okay for me.  There are replays after big plays and the atomosphere is there.  The commentary isn't that bad but I disabled just because.  The menu music is annoying so I turned that off as well, other than that the sound is good.  It is fast loading and plays smoothly so no gripes there.

Minigames -
There are a ton of mini games.  END2END is a blast to play.

So far I only have 1 gripe and that is the camera.  On 3 of the camera angles it just doesn't zoom out enough to see all of your receivers.  On the over the top cam it is good but the people are a too small.
You can use the other 3 to see the receivers if you do this.  When you goto the line press the Right trigger and that will zoom out the camera.  You can't hike the ball until you let it go but if you hike it right after you let go it will stay at the zoomed level. 

Overall this is a good purchase.  I would like to try out the wifi later but the single player plays very well and I am happy with my purchase especially since CC has it for 28.
591  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Texas Hold 'Em free for download right now!! on: August 24, 2006, 02:34:10 PM
This game is very addicting, especially if you get a good crowd. I think I played for around 4 1/2 hours last night. I might have played a little more but my internet connection went down, sorry about that wonderpug, it just dropped.

When I setup the game I forgot to make the seats for private use.  We did get a lot of friends to join but we also got alot of random people and they were all great.  No one was going all-in all the time and the chatting was fun, I have to get me some food stamps though(that guy was something else).  

Tips:
Turn off the music it gets old fast.
You can use the left and right triggers when you bet to increase/decrease the bet by $10 increments.
Be prepared to wait if Stankydanktoker is playing he will take forever just to check.
Talk, talk, talk.  This makes playing poker on 360 better much then on PC.


I should be on tonight..  Do we want to setup a tournament this time or just do a standard game?
592  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Texas Hold 'Em free for download right now!! on: August 24, 2006, 03:42:05 AM
Had a wonderful time playing with Lockdown and all the other guys.  I can attest and actually say that Lockdown is telling the truth.  He dominated Soulchilde it was almost too bad to watch. 

Heh, anyway, it is fun when you have people to talk to. It is an easy and relaxing game that is free, what more could you ask for. 

Maybe setup some kind of GT tournament.  Anyone Insterested????


593  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Texas Hold 'Em free for download right now!! on: August 23, 2006, 10:36:24 PM
What time do we want to play tonite???
594  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Texas Hold 'Em free for download right now!! on: August 23, 2006, 06:19:02 PM
Played the game at lunch and it is very good.  I have already lost 8000 playing online.  Sorry full house.

We need to get a GT table going tonite.....
595  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kirby Canvas Impressions on: July 05, 2006, 07:14:45 PM
I am still playing this game.  It is one of the best games on the DS.  The levels are really unique and can be difficult.  There is one level where it is dark and there are lamps that you have to touch in order to show the screen.  Just a lot of neat stuff packed into that game.

Pick it up today.
596  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Target and Walmart Break DS Lite Street Date on: May 31, 2006, 04:42:18 PM
Just picked it up from the Target in LittleRock,AR.  The picture is so much better.  I hadn't really been playing NSMB to much in anticipation and I am glad I waited.  The colors are awesome.
597  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Table Tennis Impressions on: May 24, 2006, 01:23:33 PM
Yes great game.  I played about 5 games online, won 2 and had very good matches.  

I just have a problem of moving my guy when I am trying to place the ball. If you move the left analog before pressing the right analog you will be moving your guy and that constantly happens to me I guess I am getting too excited.  

Once you get a rally started the music starts kicking in and does that make you nervous.
598  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Super Mario Bros. on: May 19, 2006, 06:37:22 PM
This game is great, just simple basic gameplay.  I like the visuals and the sound and for me it is challenging.  I would definatley suggest this game.
599  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sony Press Conference on: May 09, 2006, 01:59:47 AM
It has the range of motion but it will be a little clunky can you imagine trying to use that like a sword or a fishing pole, a little awkward.

Quote from: "TheMissingLink"
An extra 40 gigs = $100 more?  I had dinner during that part of the presentation, were they offering anything more or something?


No just the extra hard drive space.  That was the first thing I thought 100 for 40 gigs what kind of hard drive is this?
