Console Games / Re: Burger King Xbox 360 games
« on: December 03, 2006, 12:05:50 am »
I got all 3, can't pass up 3 games for 12 bucks.  Their definetly not AAA+++ titles but for 4 bucks their enough fun to warrant a purchase.  Plus achievment points!

Console Games / Re: what is your opinion of MS so far?
« on: December 02, 2006, 11:53:27 pm »
I think they've done a B or possibly A-worthy job.  Hardware wise everything is fine except the max 20GB HDD which is a huge problem because of the video service and size of mainly video files.  Also I see a problem (game wise) with Blue Dragon being on 3 DVDs.  This isn't a huge deal (not for a single player game IMO) but it completely disclaims MS's statement that you "don't need blu ray" or any other next gen format.  Its proof that MS is at fault, at least in the JPN market where games are 50+ hours and full of cut scenes.  However, it makes me curious that games like Gears are only 5 acts on 1 DVD, I'd rather have it much longer.  But more importently is the fact that Blue Dragon is a fairly early game.  Here we are at 1 year and we already see 3 DVDs, thats a lot compared to FFVII having 3 CDs 3 years after the PS1 launched (it came out in 98, right?).  Aside from that, I have a problem with games like Crackdown, Bioshock, Forza 2, and Fable 2 being pushed back seeing as how they are key titles.  Peter Moore said they'd be coming this year (some of them) and none are which is a big let down because the 360 only has 1 single killer app in its, arguably, unchallenged year in the console wars.  We've seen some pretty great games on the 360 like Oblivion, GRAW, CoD2, Dead Rising, and Gears but none have really attracted on the main stream.  I mean Jack Thompsan hasn't said a thing about Gears and the chainsaw is pretty nasty.  There hasn't been a game like GTA or Halo that EVERYONE knows and people want just because of the name.  I suppose were still waiting but MS better have some killer new and exclusive games soon.  Another problem is the XBL Arcade.  There are way to many "classic" games.  This is great for mom and pop but for the hardcore or even a few casual gamers theres not enough new content.  MS also hasn't really connected with their casual market as much as they wanted to.  They won't even get their 10 million console lead and although some may think its because of the competition or software I think its because of the price, 400 dollars for a console is still pretty steep and I think that is a big factor.  MS should be advertising to what casual gamers like more, Gears just looks to much like a hardcore game.  Dead Rising, Madden, and Saint's Row look like they should be advertised a tad more to MS's "target audience".  Theres a hefty amount of games that have hardcore followings and audiences on the 360 like DOA, GRAW, SCDA, and Gears which is always a good thing but when you alienate casual gamers its not.

Ahhh!  Any how I think their heading in a good direction for 2007 gamewise and XBL wise because of the content their pumping out.  They just need a price drop and a bigger hard drive.  Some good exclusives are coming, like Lost Planet, and MS is right on track to dethroning Sony as long as Nintendo doesn't come from behind (personally I think the Wii will show its age in 2008 and will lose in popularity).  MS just had a tough year with supplies not picking up till literally April and they need to remember to hit Sony hard when their in shortages next year (including European launch).  A price drop when the PS3 starts picking up would be perfect.

Wow I'm actually suprised, I didn't mean to come off against MS, infact I meant the opposite at the start of the thread, but they have some serious problems.  Of course Sony and Nintendo have their fair share of problems that I could write about extensively as well.  But 2007 will be the year that matters.

I'm trying to get one still, but I have a feeling there will be plenty of Wiis this holiday.

Portable Games / Re: Will the PSP make a comeback?
« on: December 02, 2006, 11:33:09 pm »
I suppose that may be because of the release of devhook so people up to 2.71 can run homebrew :D  But besides that, the PSP has games like Killzone and GTA or SOCOM that are appealing but it needs a price drop badly.  Although a "core" model was released, it still hasn't had a "real" price drop and can't compete as a media device coming with a 1GB card.  I have a 4GB card and I still want more, but I have a ton of homebrew on my 1.5 PSP....

Console Games / Re: So...Who is Getting Gears of War?
« on: November 16, 2006, 09:31:48 pm »
So how is Gears all? I'm still deciding between Rainbow 6: Vegas and Gears so which do you think will be bigger overall? Either way I'm getting both but not one until late next month.

You probally can't go wrong with either, but gears is rocking hard.

Yeah I supposer Gears cause ally ou seem to like it :D  I just heard some sketchy things about online, but still it sounds amazing.

Console Games / Re: Superman Returns: Demo
« on: November 16, 2006, 09:30:38 pm »
Same here, at first I wasn't expecting much out of the demo, I mean I liked the movie, but I don't expect a lot of movie games or superman games for that matter.  Then I started using the super powers and super speed and it was pretty sweet.  I don't know if I'd buy the game, especially for 50 or 60 bucks, but if I saw it for 10-20 in a year or so I'd be inclined to buy it.  Its not terrible and the controls are a little clunky with somewhat bland graphics, but the super powers are fun and killing civilians is great :D, using the speed and just flying around is one of the coolest things in a demo I've done though.

Console Games / Steve was right! Comand and Conquer 3 coming to 360.....

Months ago, when this was a weekly podcast, Steve predicted C&C3 would be on the 360 when BFMEII came out.  Loe and behold he was right :)

Back on topic, I'll just say that the PSP has some kick ass games coming like Gitaroo man and stuff but then sony is retarded and releasing Parappa the Rappa on UMD when their coming out with a PS1 emulater this holiday which will, presumably, have that game on the list for cheaper.  Wtf  ???

Portable Games / PSP Homebrew
« on: October 11, 2006, 03:30:21 pm »
I was wondering if anyone else follows the PSP homebrew seen?  A 2.71 downgrader was released and now I'm at 1.5 and enjoying my PSP more then I ever did before :D  Anyone else at 1.5?

PC Games / Re: CD Key Rant

Thats why I like digital distribution like Steam, you don't have to worry about CD keys and junk :)  Sorry for your luck, just call the number on the back of the box.

Console Games / Re: Convince me to get an Xbox 360

Mass Effect, and if you don't like RPGs then Gears of War.  Did that convince you?  If not I don't know what will ;)

Maybe he will do a show this weekend, wrapping up TGS and X05, that would be a kick ass show. ;D

Heh, that reminds me, he has interviews from E3, I wonder if he will even bother to play them now.
