Check out this little video of the game in action.  It looks like it plays close to the old games and is very fluidly animated.  Looking forward to this one!

Wow, that looks incredible.  I love when gaming surprises like this come out of nowhere!

Or you could download all 22 currently aired episodes online through bittorrent.

That's how I got caught up halfway through the season- until I got a nice Copyright Infringement notice from NBC.

I have also seen rumors stating that not only will a new character be announced, but that it will be Tingle.  That frightens me.  I doubt it is true, though (the Tingle thing).

I would be ok with this if the game included Fatalities.

I'm sure if someone analyzes it enough it can be turned around into $ony is making money-  I wonder how long their spin team will take to respond to the loss.

What loss?  You're thinking short term, the PS3 is long term!

Quote
"We didn't get into PS3 for the first six months of 2007 - we're into this for the next 10 years and beyond," said Sony President Jack Tretton.  "A million units one way or another at this point isn't going to worry us."

Analyst Billy Pidgeon backs up Sony's claim, saying: "The PS3 is ahead of the market, while the Xbox 360 and the Wii were designed for immediate market impact, I believe sales of Sonyt's next-gen console will ramp up in 2008."

See?  All is well!

Yes, it does help a bit.  So are we to assume what we are witnessing now (present time) is the 3rd option?  The "rewriting" of the two futures-gone-wrong, so to speak?

That's my interpretation.

Future Hiro's original future:
No "Save the Cheerleader" visit
Peter does not meet Clair
Sylar kills Clair and gains regen
Hiro stabs Sylar, Sylar regens
Someone (likely Sylar) explodes

Future Hiro's new future when he returns
Just came back from giving "Save the Cheerleader" speech
Peter meets Clair and saves her, Peter gets regen
Sylar does not kill Clair
<not clear what happened to the stabbing>
Peter explodes, everyone thinks it's Sylar


That help at all?

The game does a good job of gradually introducing you to the game mechanics, so for the most part you can just jump right in.  Just make sure to set up a diverse range of types in your team, print out a type matchup chart until you get the hang of it, and feel free to ask any questions!

I'm still chipping away at the end game trying to fill my collection, so if there's any pokemon you hear about that you want in your team, feel free to ask and I'll check if I can breed you one.
9490  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: HEROES - 5/14/07 on: May 15, 2007, 02:35:50 AM
Well, in the future from the "Five Years Gone" episode, Sylar does not explode.  Peter does, but everyone thinks it was Sylar. 

In the current timeline, it could still go either way.

Sylar does think he himself will blow up, so to answer your question:  Sylar is new to this power, maybe he doesn't think that he could get hurt in the explosion.  He can make little controlled radioactivity bursts in his hands without his skin melting off, so maybe he is indeed immune.  Even Ted, who had the powers for a lot longer than Sylar, didn't know what would happen if he blew up.  Earlier Ted said something like, "I don't know what would happen if I was shot, do you?"

Actually, now that I think about it, in the "Five Years Gone" timeline, Peter never went to save Clare, so he didn't have her regeneration.  Since we know for sure that he was the one to blow in that timeline, I guess that means that the exploder is safe.

That's awesome. I love that I can still recognize the game scenes in those screenshots even with the visual upgrade.  I wonder how gruesome the new spike deaths will look.

Definitely IN.  I have fond memories of prolonging sword fights in the original just because they looked so neat.

Is the MUA : gold a price-reduced title?

If it were I'd be all over it.

I would jump on it as well, but I think it's just the same game, full price, with the new downloadable characters included.  So, I guess technically it's $10 cheaper.

Rumors that are starting to pop up are making me feel like this is very very unlikley to be WoS or Starcraft 2...can't pin it down, but...yeah, I don't think so.

As unlikely as it is, I really hope they come out of nowhere and announce a new franchise.  I think they've still got some innovation left in them (the Emperor hasn't driven it from you fully!) and the amount of crazed anticipation, speculation, and buzz it would create on the internet would be fun to watch.

I can get you a Palkia from the GTS.  It'll likely be Japanese with a Japanese name, but other than that it'll work just fine.

Just to warn you, you'll also only have one chance to capture the three legendary psychic guys that live in the lakes.
9497  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Car porn (Forza 2) on: May 13, 2007, 03:43:09 PM
Car damage is only for looks in the demo.  In the full game it does indeed affect performance (if you want it to), and if you look at the last page of the telemetry info you can see how detailed the damage tracking is.

I think he's talking about games sold in western countries--which don't typically show up on Japanese sales charts. ;)

"Writing Chinese character, how the truth and convenience which is inspected! You recognize unexpected properly and. Rather than buying the electronic dictionary even price, convenient it puts out.
Also England and Japan is convenient. The [ru] it is with the shank, you did not know either with sound."

You had me at "it puts out," but "it is with the shank" is the icing on the cake.

Hori is good, a lot of people go with them.  I prefer the Brando ones myself, seem sturdier and clearer to me.

As far as games that won't get an English translation, the Jump! Superstars game and it's sequel are pretty popular imports.  I've heard you need at least some basic Japanese reading skills to really enjoy them, though.

So hey, how many on each side can you have in an online match? It read like it was a 1-on-1 matchup which, honestly, rather sucks for Pokemon. Much better to have 3-vs-3 (like in Colisseum) or more, since that opens up more room for strategy rather than luck.

I haven't done an online battle yet, but I'm almost certain you can have up to 6 on a team, and you can have them scaled to level 50 or level 100.

I think Battle Revolution on the Wii might limit you to 3 on 3, but I can't remember what I read for sure.

As far as I know I'll be able to do it tonight.

I think these are the pending requests:

Starshifter - Turtle named GAMERA
Magik - Houndour, possibly some of the old starters?
Farscry - Charmander


Starshifter, with GAMERA added to your team, I think you just might have to get a Dustox for yourself named MOTHRA

(Or is it blasphemy to mix Japanese monster franchises?)

Where do you get the hardware sales figures? I couldn't find them on the NeoGaf site when I followed the link at the top of this thread.

They don't have them yet for this week. Scroll down and click on the 4/23-4/29 week, then you'll see hardware sales underneath the software.

Is there a Wii Sports that sells seperately, or is that a direct correlation with the number of Wiis sold?
For some reason Wii Sports is included with the system everywhere but Japan.
Other than Baseball, perhaps the other sports aren't as popular in Japan?
Tennis is huge in Japan, I believe golf is pretty popular as well, and I do remember seeing some bowling alleys when I was there.  No idea about boxing.

I think it more has to do with Nintendo knowing they'd have an easier time gaining acceptance for the Wii in Japan compared to the rest of the world.  As a tech demo and through word-of-mouth, I think Wii Sports was pretty crucial to system's success here.

Besides, the 4/30-5/06 week lists the LTD sales as 1.4million Wii Sports and 2.2million Wii systems.  Two out of three ain't too shabby.

BTW - if you trade eggs, you have full control of the Pokemon when it hatches (as it's considered your Pokemon). Something you might want to keep in mind for further trades.
Didn't think of that.  It's a tradeoff, though, as the XP bonus for using a traded pokemon makes levelling so much faster.

That's also true. The boosted EXP is very nice. You gain 150% of normal exp for each victory. But then you can't control them until you get the badges. *shrugs*

There's an item called an everstone that stops your pokemon from levelling up.  If you had one of those and reached your level cap you could just hold them there until you got to the next needed badge.
