The Uncharted 2 Trailer just looks amazing, i can't wait to play it, they say all of it was done in-engine.

But god of war 3...was just so cheesy and meh. Is that really how the guy sounds like? I swear, when i played god of war a year ago, kratos sounded ..a lot cooler

But you guys do get the Lost and the Damned chapter for GTA IV, should be nice, let's see how it turns out

So I just started up a new Earthbound game this afternoon. Maybe it'll get me in the mood ;)

You're both fucking awful. It's a great game and I THOUGHT we'd all been waiting for it for quite a long time, but now I realize that I AM THE ONE TRUE FAN >:

Esuohlim Dec 16th, 2008 02:23 AM

It IS a great game. I just never want to play it when I'm not playing it. :(

We're all playing the patched ROM. It's still only officially released in Japan.

Again, fuck you, Nintendo.

OxBlood Dec 16th, 2008 06:55 AM

Oh nice, so I could play it...let´s see where I have those GBA-Emulators...

Edit: ...and done. I love the modern world sometimes...now to throw that stuff on my DS and we have something nice.

executioneer Dec 16th, 2008 07:50 AM

they released a japanese to english hack a while ago

OxBlood Dec 16th, 2008 08:24 AM

And that´s a moment when I love the internet. Same with Seiken Densetsu 3 some years ago, those translation-teams deserve a big heartfelt "thank you".

I did have the opportunity last week while at Game Stop to play the same game title on both 360 and PS3. And 360 is winning out, especially since it's way cheaper. The controller isn't as different as what was the original concern. The graphics and playability did have a slight edge going to the 360.

Plus, the exclusive games for PS3 that we saw had not that great of graphics or really something that I would stand in line for.

Unless I am mistaken, there seems to be about 70% 360ers, and 30% PS3ers on the thread. I do see both sides, but I think that I am closer to my choice now.

Again, thanks everyone for their input.

I think you should try the games that really show the system off, I mean i went into my gamestop today and they had The Force unleashed on the ps3, hardly a system pusher...

But games like little big planet...mgs4 , uncharted should let you see the fun in them.
Maybe i will get a 360 this christmas, i have no idea. But i still dont know how im going to connect it to the internet without a wireless adapter, my router is 2 rooms away and i dont want to pay 100 bucks for a fucking wi-fi dongle.

Guitar Woman Dec 16th, 2008 10:57 PM

Earthbound Zero is better than Mother 3, anyway. :/

I wanted to like this game so hard. It takes forever to get going is the biggest problem, I think. After the game actually started at Chapter 5 I was sort of done with it.

Then again I didn't like Eternal Darkness until about 2 months after I got it, so mabye it'll be the same way with Mother 3.

pac-man Dec 17th, 2008 12:45 AM

Dungeons and Dungeons. It's actually a really good platformer.

25 to 50 ft. ethernet cords'll do the job, and they're cheap at walmart or radioshack.

Fathom Zero Dec 17th, 2008 01:29 AM

That's how I do it!

DevilWearsPrada Dec 17th, 2008 01:42 AM

Another Trick: if you have a laptop, run an ethernet cord from the 360 to the laptop, then bridge wireless and wired connections on the laptop. The laptop becomes a ghetto wireless adaptor

executioneer Dec 17th, 2008 02:57 AM

you can get two cheapo wireless routers and bridge them for cheaper than the stupid xbox wireless adapter, for fucks sake

Sam Dec 17th, 2008 11:45 AM

You can use the wireless adapter for the original Xbox too.

Phoenix Gamma Dec 17th, 2008 03:18 PM

Dissidia just came out in Japan. Finally, a reason to use the PSP besides listening to music!

Actually, the game is fantastic. Replicates the retarded, over the top fights of Advent Children, and the different features adds a lot of customization. The battlefields are so fucking awesome, too.

Probably my favorite PSP game.

Fathom Zero Dec 18th, 2008 12:08 AM

I bought The Darkness, The Club, and Dark Sector today.

Woohoo. The Darkness is more fun than I imagined.

What would interest me is...what the heck are you doing in that game? Is it just a brawler or is there something to do besides the fighting? Never really figured that out when watching the Videos.


@Fathom: Good choices. At least Darkness and Sector, those are nice games, especially the darkness.

pac-man Dec 18th, 2008 03:54 AM

TMNT Arcade.

Zhukov Dec 18th, 2008 08:33 AM

I've been playing Civ4. Fantastic game of course, but I spend too long playing it, especially since I have a tendency give up and start from the begining again if someone captures a favourite city of mine.


Also playing Red Alert 3 online, but haven't been able to drag myself out of the shit players lobby.

It's Advent Children: The Videogame, starring the heroes of FFs 1-11 (12 isn't as stupid and over the top to be included I guess :()

Basically, each character has Brave Points and Hit Points. BP determines how much damage you do with the square button, and circle button uses attacks that drain BP instead of HP. So you want to reduce their BP to zero and get bonus BP, which gives you a whole lot of attack power with the square button attacks. Then you attack the HP and try to kill them while they try to regain BP by running away or stealing yours.

All that happens while people get knocked through destructable environments (castle cielings, stone pillars, entire mountains) and run around walls and grind on shit. It's really cool and fun to watch (even comes with replays that can be put on your computer) and the gameplay is pretty easy to grasp once you understand how everything works.

There's an RPG element too, where your character's stats are saved in story mode and are leveled up. You earn new moves and items to bring to battle, and when you're up to it, you bring all of that stuff to multiplayer (which can scale the levels if you don't want to fight your friend's Lv 20 Cloud with a Lv5 Cecil).

Really impressive game. No clue why this isn't on a console.

OxBlood Dec 19th, 2008 03:50 AM

Sounds a little...uncomplex somehow but still quite interesting.

Thank you for the info Phoenix. :)

Phoenix Gamma Dec 19th, 2008 09:27 AM

It's pretty simple once you play a few rounds. Not any harder to grasp than Smash Bros, I'd say.

I've got a good grasp on customizing despite my lack of Japanese knowledge. The only sucky part is that I can't play online unless I buy a PS3 and get a Japanese PS3 ID or something. $400 is a lot to play a PSP game online :(

Hopefully when it comes out here in the summer, it'll have a better online system.
