Those scores scared me, but I'm going to wait for some more real reviews before I bail completely.

That 2.5/5 GamePro review is pathetic:
Quote from: GamePro
Explaining SSX Blur's control scheme is like trying to give a brief primer on quantum physics, but here goes. With the default settings, swing the Nunchuk to make wide turns, use the C-Stick for tighter turns, the C-button to pivot 90-degrees, and the Z-button to activate grabs during aerials. Flicking the Wii Remote performs spins and flips while the A-button activates jumps and "Ubertricks," and the B button packs snowballs you can throw at collectibles and opponents.

That's it for the cons.  Call me crazy, but to me those controls sound fairly easy to learn.

Serious?  You haven't heard of the Logitech Harmony remotes?  There's a whole line of them, great stuff. 

The whole line:
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/productlist/US/EN,CRID=2080

The 360 version (image links to site):

I had vague recollection of them, but didnt know they made console specific ones. DO they have one that could do my hdtv, my 360, my ps3, etc?
All of them will work for your TV.  The 360 version will certainly work for your 360, of course, but I think all of them would work on the 360 since they're so customizable.  If you didn't know, these Logitech remotes are all programmed via your computer.  No more confusing charts to read and codes to type in, you just select the components you own through a simple interface, and the interface asks you questions about how you have your components configured for different activities.

As far as I know, there are still no universal remotes that work for the PS3, as it doesn't have an infrared receptor.  One of the higher end Harmony remotes does have an RF transmitter, but I don't think there's any remotes yet that can do bluetooth for the PS3.

There is a variety of amorous behavior in The Sims 2, including cuddling, hugging, kissing, making out, and some pretty busy under-the-covers action when two sims "woo-hoo" with each other.  You won't see the sorts of repetitive motions that would indicate clear intercourse, but there's certainly enough activity and giggling to make it clear that "mommy and daddy are playing under the covers."

-Autistic Angel
And it's clear that the under the covers activity and giggling is undoubtedly related to drawing modified venn diagrams.

Aww, no fancy-pants game installation sequence for the full version.

From some interview:
Quote
We hear you're ditching the traditional C&C-skinned install program for the third instalment - tell us it isn't true?

Verdu: Yeah, it's more of a technical limitation than anything else and where we invest team resources. There will be something when you install the game and it will be something cool, but the classic C&C installers that we've come to know and love I think were somewhat of an artefact of the DOS days - and I did love them, but you'll see that effort put into actually making the game itself feel more immersive, because we want to create a world that you can really lose yourself in.

A moment of silence, please, for the glory days of DOS.
10047  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: SSX Blur Review(s) on: February 27, 2007, 08:10:15 PM
Sounds very promising.  The lack of trick variety is the only con they listed that really stood out to me.  The only control issue they mentioned was with intiating the uber-tricks by drawing on the screen, but I have a hunch that it's simply tied to whether or not you have issues with the "pointer" sensor of the remote using the LEDs on top of your TV. 

It sounds like carving and steering by tilting the nunchuck really worked out well.  Looking forward to seeing some more reviews and impressions.

the Sharp is 1080p. 42" is a great size, so don't lock yourself in to having to have 60" or something, unless your room is the size of a movie theater.

I looked into getting the 1080p 42" Sharp, but decided against it after realizing that it didn't have a VGA port (which I wanted to hook up my 360 and have both movies ang games upconverted to 1080p). Also, I realized after viewing the sets that the picture on the 1080p 42" Westinghouse looked great to me for a much lower price. I ended up buying it for $1350 and have really enjoyed it. jblank helped me gather info for that purchase as well.  nod

$1350 for a 1080p 42" is getting very close to my buying threshold.  If prices could just drop a few hundred dollars more in the next few months in time for Mass Effect it would be much appreciated.

Just preordered this at lunch.  I don't think I've preordered a game since World of Warcraft in 2004.

This game really takes me back to the 90s when RTS games and expansions were coming out left and right, and I'd pore over each new manual, flipping straight to the unit and structure listings to read up on all the new stuff.  Here's hoping the full version doesn't let me down, although I imagine I'd get my money's worth just from the single player campaign.

It's more than just the great old school pre/post mission full motion video making the campaign a richer experience, the demo makes it seem like there's going to be plenty of mid-mission video transmissions on your sidebar, as well as doing a "video" effect on the main screen when scripted events are played out using the game engine.

papa smurff and I played this a ton.  I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of it.  I've gotten my skills all maxed, and I'm missing 18 odd agility orbs.  If there was a way to reset the city, including the bosses, I would definitely play some more.

I've been thinking something along these lines would've been the perfect way to give the game longer legs without putting that much development effort.  Once you beat the three gangs, have some simple plot exposition about how "that wasn't the real threat after all!" and respawn the islands with a new set of bosses.  Keep the same city and architecture and base layouts, but repopulate the bases with tougher enemies with better weapons, and make the hit squads more easily triggered.

From my hour or so with the game, it seemed like a standard RTS, albeit a very polished one. I'm not sure there was anything I haven't seen hundreds of times before.
This is definitely the case.  You're not going to see anything new here aside from a lot of refinement of the C&C formula.  I'm hoping to be able to say that this is the C&C style of gameplay perfected, but I need much more time with the game before I can give that big a kudos.

Quote
That said, it seemed like it will be a pretty good game. And from my brief impressions the AI looked fairly compentent (when I sent two aircraft to attack a building, they flew to the opposite side of the building where they had less enemy fire).
I was pleased to see that in skirmishes you can alter the AI personality as well as difficulty.  In my one skirmish so far I set the AI to easy so I could just mess around, but I was pleased to see that the AI not only attacked my base fairly early on, but was smart enough to go around the one turret I placed in the obvious direct approach.  It wasn't all that hard to fight them off by hastily building another turret and some more soldiers, but it was great to see that for beginners, the easy AI is easier without simply becoming brain dead.

I'm absolutely thrilled with how good this series has been.  Thank god this won the hearts of mainstream America, after seeing last night's episode I think this would've been a tragedy of Firefly proportions if it had been cancelled early on.

10054  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C3 Demo Today on: February 27, 2007, 04:26:55 PM
Lost some sleep waiting for the download to finish at midnight, but I was able to get in an hour with the game, playing the tutorial, the first mission, and one skirmish.

I think I'm in love.

Yes, it's crazy fast paced, but at first glance I think it works.  It's clear the whole game is designed to make that fast pace work.  You're not meant to methodically play out your strategy, this game is all about making quick decisions and making each decision matter.  Basic infrastructure is out of the way in 30 seconds, and by then you already know if you're going to turtle or harass for the first stage of the game.  Instead of worrying about the next distant gold mine/spice field/tiberium patch at 10-15 minutes into the game, it's on your mind in the first few minutes.  They've distilled the Dune II framework down to its core.

Yes, the build queue is a bit funky, but I think it's designed to support the fast pace.  While you're monitoring a battle on the front lines, you can queue up the next few buildings you want without having to shift focus back to your base to figure out where to place them.  The build tab flashes when they're finished, and you can head back to base to place them at your leisure, and instantly start using them.  (The way it works is that with each new construction crane or barracks you build, instead of speeding up construction you gain an extra tab from which you can form a unique build queue.)  It's definitely an odd mechanic at first, but I think it helps to create a more tangible meaning to each building in your infrastructure--so the result of losing a building is more pronounced.  If you blow up one of your enemy's two barracks, you haven't just slowed their production speed--you've eliminated their ability to build rifleman and rocket troops at the same time.

People will likely also complain about having to pay to use special powers, but again I think this fits the fast pace.  It makes decisions matter.  You can't just spam the "reveal cloaked units" ability whenever you're feeling paranoid, you have to decide if using that ability is worth the cost of building X number of tanks instead.

Messing around in skirmish, I built just about everything GDI and Nod have to offer.  There's a huge selection of units, but they not only managed to make each and every one of them seem unique, they seemed to have succeeded in keeping a common thread to the units within a faction.  If you were turned off by the lack of unit individuality in SupCom within and across factions, you're going to be very happy with the selection in C&C3.  It's hard to say for sure after such a brief time with the game, but they also seem to have succeeded in making sure the 1st tier units aren't absolete by the time you roll out your Mammoth Tanks.  Everyone seems to have their purpose.

Oh yeah, and the game looks beautiful, I really like the style of the units and the landscape.  They've got a nifty wobbly heat wave effect that comes off the power plant smokestacks and under the flying Orcas, the weapon blasts look really cool, great eye candy all around.

I'll try and dig deeper into the game tonight, but yeah, extremely impressed with the game at first glance.  I thought Generals was terrible, it's great to see the franchise get back to the basics that made us fall in love with the genre in the first place.  Can't wait to get home.

Which they're doing, according to an article I read yesterday. They're going to be releasing one for $500 (or is it $600) in the very near future to compete with HD-DVD.

Ron, very grateful for the demo hosting, but from outside DC I am pulling in only around 38 kbs. Thanks!

Sweet Jebus!  Try this for me -

1.) Download downthemall extension for Firefox or some download manager that can pull multiple threads
2.) Pull 5-10 open connections and see what speed you get
3.) Post in here please.

I need to figure out why some folks are getting decent speeds and some are not.

I was getting 70kb/s on the first link, the new private link was initially 250kb/s with some 500kb/s bursts, but then after a few minutes it settled down to 60-70kb/s.  I've now started again after installing downthemall, and I'm getting a steady 250-300kb/s.  I'd love to pull 5-10 open connections and see what I get, but I don't know what that means.  All I know is that it'll now be here in a couple hours instead of four, and in any case I'll be content to be able to put in a little time trying the game before work.  Oh wait, is this "add chunk" button what meant by pulling connections?  HOLY SHIT 1MB/s?!  Ok, settling down to 500kb/s now, final resting point bouncing between 300-400kb/s with 10 "chunks" downloading via cable modem to Boston.

I guess it's time to revisit some of those "must have Firefox extensions" threads, I didn't know what I was missing!

I don't know, for me a $2000 is a long term investment, I'd hold out for 1080p to help the TV stay more viable in the long run.  And with the rate prices are dropping, if you can't find a 50" 1080p you like for $2000 now, you will in the very near future.

If it was me, I'd spin it something like this:

"Despite the production complications that inevitably arise when producing a device with so many different leading edge technologies, we've had tremendous success in making sure consumers can buy their Playstation 3 as soon as they're ready to buy one.  Our goal now is to ensure that stores around the country are sufficiently stocked with enough PS3 units to meet the next wave of demand, when the groundbreaking blockbuster titles such as Motorstorm, F1, and Armored Core 4 hit retailers everywhere in the next few weeks."

This would be acceptable and expected BS in my book, sounds good without too much of it coming out your ass.

GameSpot has a video interview up with producer Amer Ajami where he discusses the alien race in the game.  According to him, the aliens get more cash per tiberium shard, can reseed tiberium fields so they never run out, have no hard cap on the amount of money they can earn (Nod and GDI both have to build silos), and construct units which are faster, more versatile, and have shorter build times than the other sides.

Does anyone know what sort of disadvantages might offset all those things to help keep the game balanced?

-Autistic Angel

I'm not sure, but I think their units are generally more fragile than GDI and Nod units, but with the extra cash they're more able to swarm the enemy.

I definitely agree with that.  It is such a great time to be a RTS gamer this year. 

It's too bad Blizzard isn't releasing a new Starcraft this year, or it'd be like stepping into a time machine.  We already got a new Age of Empires a little over a year ago, so with TA2 and C&C3 we're well on our way to a 1997-98 RTS reunion.

I have the first two of Erikson's books but I didn't want to start them until the series was finished.  I got burned by Wheel of Time and Song of Ice & Fire and just have a hard time getting back into a series with one book every year or two.  The Malazan stuff isn't concluded is it?
No, I'm afraid not.  I believe it's expected to end up at ten novels or so, so I'm definitely wary of it becoming another endless story.  The first five novels are supposed to be fairly well self contained as a story arc, otherwise I'd be holding off on the series until it was finished.

Gormenghast?  Wow there's one I've heard of but never read.  I think I'll have to check it out.  It's one of those I've been meaning to read along with LeGuin's Earthsea books.
I really can't recommend Gormenghast enough.  I'm actually still in the process of chipping away at it.  The writing is incredible, but I generally have a hard time reading such descriptive novels very quickly.  I have to be in the right mood and have the right setting to be able to really relax and let myself absorb the story.  It's a bit too dense for me to read on the subway.

I thought I was getting tired of the genre, but I've recently started into the Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen series and am enjoying it very much.  I bought the first book several years ago on a strong recommendation, but I found myself getting too confused after the first 100 pages and putting it aside--again and again.  I must have read those first 100 pages three or four times over the past several years.  Erikson's built a very complex world, and he kind of throws you in expecting you to know all these newly invented races, place names, and Gods.

Last month I finally put my foot down and plowed through the whole book.  Fantastic novel.  It's great to see a fresh take on how magic works that's more than just incantations and scrolls.

But besides that, I highly highly recommend the Gormenghast Novels by Mervyn Peake.  If you're sick of recycled generic fantasy plotlines and characters, dive into Gormenghast to see fantasy as true literature.  Just about every character is a fascinating grotesque, and he describes the characters and scenes in such a rich poetic narrative you'll find his self-drawn illustrations to be an exact replica of what you had already conjured up in your mind's eye.  This series has often been justifiably compared to Tolkien and Dickens.  If you're about to give up on fantasy, make sure you don't quit before giving this masterpiece a try.

(And best of all, unlike the Wheel of Time and Songs of Fire & Ice, Gormenghast has an ending!)

I count about 12 titles I want to try and grab, as well as as many $2 Xbox 360 games I can carry to take advantage of futuer trade-in offers.

As a diversion, I've had a lot of fun making my own game of how to attack a base.  It's fun to enter empty handed, taking down your first guard by hand to get your first gun and then scavenging as you go like some kind of action movie.

I've also found it to be very fun to play around with the Shai Gen pistol.  Even at 3 star firearm skill, it locks on to headshots very very quickly as long as the distance isn't huge, and a single shot to the head downs a Volk--and this is with the difficulty raised a level.  Gives you a very secret agent kind of feel to take down a half dozen guards in a few seconds with silenced single shot pistol rounds.  (Probably not actually silenced, but it sounds that way when you're used to firing the deafening machine guns.)

Very tempted by SSX Blur, but I've got way too much on my plate right now.  Unless the impressions are off the charts, I'll be waiting a bit to get it.
