I'm on the lookout as well so I'll definitely post if I hear anything.

You might want to monitor Quarter to Three's Wii sighting thread, although they've started to get a little sidetracked.

Most recently from that thread there seems to be a shitty Gamestop bundle (forced extended warranty, no 2nd controller) that will ship on 1/17.

I'm also keeping an eye on Penny Arcade's sighting thread, but they're reporting that Gamestops are selling out within 10 minutes of a shipment arriving.

Quite honestly I'm not sure why Nintendo can't get more of these things out there.  I can't immagine that there are supply issues with any of the components.  It's not exactly cutting edge technology.  Plus it's not like they are losing money on each console sold, so they should be very motivated to get as many on the shelves as possible. 

3.2 million units sold in the first month and a half of launch doesn't seem too shabby to me.  Maybe if they upped their production capability much more they'd be left with a bunch of unused factories when the initial demand dies off in a few months?

I am surprised, though, at how hard it seems to be for them to keep the remotes'n'chucks in stock.  They really can't keep up spitting out 2-4 remotes for every Wii that comes off the assembwii line?

edit: felt compelled to stick a wii pun in there

I'm pretty sure that hitting any ending, including the worst one that you just got, is enough to unlock Julius mode.  You might want to give it a try before you sell, it lets you play as Julius, that girl, and Dracula's son.

I was wrong, should have recalled the story:

Spoiler for Hiden:
You unlock Julius Mode by getting the ending where Soma succumbs to Dracula's spirt.  That's not from beating Dario, it's the ending after that one.

I believe any ending should allow access to New Game+, but could be wrong.

I'm really pretty sure that any ending unlocks Julius, and only the good ending unlocks New Game+.  I clearly remember having Julius available well before I beat the game the right way, because I made myself wait until I had gotten the good ending before trying Julius mode.  I wanted to use Julius mode to break things up before I gave the game another run on hard difficulty with New Game+.

edit: ah wait, I misunderstood you on the first read.  I think you're right, that makes sense with the story.

There is just no way in hell this will happen in 2007.  Remember, most gamers held on to 98SE as the preferred gaming platform long after XP was released.

Not all the gamers I ever hung out with. 98 was gone from all of our HD's within 6 months of XP's release.

I doubt XP was better than 98SE for gaming 6 months after its release.  I don't know if I'd say most gamers held on to 98SE, but there was certainly a large number of people that held on to it for as long as gamingly possible.

If I remember, you're actually supposed to restart and replay the game to get to the Big Bad, using that New Game+, or whatever it's called.
Nah, you can keep playing your original save.  New Game+ just let's you start from the beginning with all your toys and/or at a different difficulty level.

If you're at the part I think you're at, you're supposed to do something other than just attack him when you face the guy, or you get the bad ending.  What abilities have you received recently?

If this really is being implemented, are you sure you wouldn't rather have it be a smaller button?  Or even better have it located one more step removed, by having it accessible only by visiting someone's profile.  I'm guessing you'd rather have people only ignore others by real intent, not on an impulse.

I also think that it's trouble letting everyone access their own or others' ignore count.  I can see it leading to people making a stink when they see their own count go up, using it as ammo to try and oust or put down a controversial forum member that may have a high count, things like that.

Out of all of these, I still think Cowboy Bebop is the best match based on Lockdown's initial post.  Watch the whole series, then the movie.  If you love Firefly I think it's a sure bet that Bebop will blow you away.  In fact, since you ended up buying Firefly, I'm confident enough to recommend that you just go ahead and buy the whole Cowboy Bebop series instead of trying to rent it first, you're going to love it so much.

Make sure you watch them in order, this series is big on character development.
10458  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Shot in the dark question(San Francisco restaurants) on: January 03, 2007, 01:54:06 PM
I found this website which specifically lists waterfront view restaurants.  The article lists two recommendations that I would second:

The Caprice Restaurant in Tiburon

Quote
Donna writes, "I was looking for a restaurant with superb views of the Golden Gate Bridge to dine at on our last night in the City. . .the ideal location would have been Green's, but we wanted steak/seafood and they are strictly vegetarian.   I looked EVERYWHERE for recommendations, but very few places have a clear unobstructed view of the bridge.  After what must have been 40 hours of research, I stumbled upon a review for the Caprice and decided to take a chance--and I am fortunate to have found it.

This is one of the places I was thinking among the waterfront restaurants north of the bridge.  I don't think you can beat this if you want a chance to see both the Golden Gate as well as the city while you have a great meal.

The other would be the Greens, which is a great choice if you want to eat in San Francisco.  It's right on the waterfront in Fort Mason, and if I remember right they have enormous windows overlooking the water.  It's a vegetarian restaurant, but as the presentation and food is top notch, you'd hardly notice the lack of meat.  Very classy.
10459  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Shot in the dark question(San Francisco restaurants) on: January 03, 2007, 01:44:05 PM
I don't know of any rotating restaurants, but if you want to eat with a nice view of the city I'd recommend going north of the bridge to one of the bayside towns like Sausalito or Belvedere-Tiburon.  I forget which one has the little wharf downtown, but fog permitting you'd get a very good look at SF.  You could even take a ferry from there to Alcatraz or Fisherman's Wharf.

I get the feeling that no matter how good a movie this turns out to be, I'd probably prefer reading the script that Spielberg read and loved two years ago but Lucas rejected.

I think we're discussing the nature of NSFW things, and how the responsibility for choosing whether or not to read NSFW things ultimately falls on the reader himself.

Ninja Scroll doesn't have a lot in common with Appleseed, but it's an entertaining (but ultra-violent) anime movie (haven't seen the series, and OH GOD STAY AWAY FROM THE SEQUEL) about, well, ninjas.  It's got some incredible fight scenes.

Supreme Commander will sell dissappointly and get middling reviews (7-8, with a few 9's in there).  But that won't stop the TA-fanatics who bought it to constantly not-shut-the-fuck-up about how it was robbed by stupid media/gamers.  Every RTS thread for the rest of 2007 will degenerate into an argument about Supreme Commander, usually started when some RTS misses some feature that SupCom has, like... I don't know... Super scalable zoom or some shit.  Or maybe a lack of lifeless robots in perfect formation firing at each other.  Common Refrain: "You're all too stupid to understand the game".  Which means of course, that fans of Supreme Commander will be using a common argument used by the Supreme Commander.

Christmas '07:

New Wii remotes will be released in a variety of attractive and irresistable colors, causing even people already possessing 4 wiimotes to buy them again so that each player can have a different color.

The 360 will have a nice holiday price drop in the fall.

The PS3 will not.

The PC will see the release of Spore, and Will Wright will take emergent behavior a step too far and our computers will finally become self aware and spawn a worldwide war of the machines, but humans will prevail pretty easily because all the enemy war machines will hop around on one leg and have optic sensors that can only see the machine's own butt, because little Billy was busy trying to evolve his spore to be able to kiss its own butt when his computer (the first of the resistance) became self aware.

Cyborg Justice it is!  Thanks!



I seem to remember preferring the torso on the far left, with the spiked legs (for speed), buzz-saw primary arm (could only remove enemies' second limb with the saw or grinder), and lobster claw second arm (changed 2nd arm does't add anything, just liked the look).

This game was a lot of fun in 2-player co-op.  You'd race each other for the good limbs, or if you were feeling evil you could squable and pull them off even each other.

Hope this makes it to the Wii this year.
10470  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name the game? Genesis, robots, removable limbs... on: January 01, 2007, 06:51:38 PM
For the life of me I can't remember the name of this old sidescroller on the Genesis.  1-2 players control these robots fighting their way through lots of other robots.  Different robots had limbs with different abilities: saw arms, flamethrower arms, rocket arms, tank legs, jumping legs, heavy legs, and more.  You could pull off (or saw off) enemy limbs and stick them on yourself.  By yanking off the torso of an enemy you could absorb their energy to recharge yourself.

That game was a ton of fun, anyone remember the name?

Quote from: Kobra on December 30, 2006, 06:17:14 PM

For me personally, I consider myself ethical, however given certain conditions or specifics, I can and do bend it but not to the extent it would be considered criminal. Labelling taking additional napkins "Theft" is pretty chimp.  For something to be a theft, it can't be "Free" if someone takes it, and there certainly aren't any signs saying "Take only 5 napkins".  Therefore, it fits into my ethical spectrum, and is slightly bent in my favor.  Now if there was a sign saying "Napkins are 5 for free, any addition are $1.00" and I took 500 of them, it would be unethical, and I wouldn't do it.
So if an employee kindly said to you, "The intention of the napkins we leave out is for people to have the napkins they need for the meal they are eating at our restaurant," you would no longer take hundreds (or even just dozens) of napkins from them?

I completely disagree.  I mean, if a car dealership raises prices too high, naturally you have to sneak in at night and siphon gas out of the tanks and steal their doormat--wait hold on.
Turns out I agree with your crazy "no stealing" theory.

Of course, that bad karma is balanced by the people who (dining in) buy a large drink instead of a small when free refills are available.

Is this really the best solution?  To prohibit discussion of how this new console battle shapes up over the next year?  No mention of which version of a cross-platform release has better visuals?  Whether it's worth getting a nonHD Wii version of a game because of the motion control?  Whether Forza 2 or Gran Turismo 5 is the new champion of the genre?

It's your house, and your rules, of course.  It's just sad that I'd have to head to QT3 or OO to find discussion about how this new Nintendo-Sony-Microsoft cagematch is shaping up.  I like GT better.

Is there really no way we can turn the discussions civil again, instead of getting rid of them entirely?

Purge, you fail to see how the other side looks just as bad I guess. I know exactly how everyone feels about every system because it is repeated constantly.
This is an exciting time for gamers, we've got two new consoles coming out at once, one's a wildcard, the other an unstable juggernaut.  Nobody knows how this will play out.  For people interested in the industry as well as just the hobby, i.e., people who spend time every day in a gaming forum, new articles, reports, and analyses are all worth talking about.

Sure, we have multiple threads that are similar enough to all be in a single thread--Penny Arcade's forums strictly enforce having one thread per topic--but that's not how things are run here.  New releases, new movies, questions about the best HDTV...it's the norm in this (and many other) forums to have redundant topics.

The "glut of PS3s online" article has been posted in other gaming forums, in its own thread even, and people seem capable of discussing it with only the normal level of console vs. console rivalry.  Why can't we?

The bottom line is, just because one group of people don't think something is worth talking about, it doesn't mean that another group who does find it noteworthy shouldn't be allowed to discuss it.  If you think an article or a posting is rubbish, express your disagreement in coherent sentences, but don't post just to disrupt the discussion.

Hetz's recent posts aren't that different than when people would owl bomb threads of posters they didn't like in OO.
