    Brutal Legend: Did it try to do too much? Is rhythm minigame not required?

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 January 2010

    You can't bypass the rhythm minigame. Personally I wondered why this wasn't a bigger aspect of the game. The game is all about the music but you only ever deliver one bar of music, and only then for 'special' moves? Which I guess brings us to your second point. It mixes up a lot of different gameplay without excelling in much.- RTS was bad. I've not played the multiplayer because it's all...

    controller buttons "naming"

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 January 2010

    The symbols mean something in japanese - although the meaning of two of them are swapped for the rest of the world:O - confirm (when you come out of a japanese subway station you go through the exists marked with an O)X - cancel (if you see an subway exit with a cross, that's a no go)My g/f works for a japanese company and has seen the square and triangle used in spreadsheets for meaning as well,...

    Will Sony have supply issues with the PS3 this Holiday?

    in Sony Discussion on 04 December 2009

    dsgrue3 said: 0cton said:dsgrue3 AFAIK they don't sell consoles to stores, that's how they can drop the price how they want, they control the price not the stores. for this they must half-rent a section in stores, and shipping is an issue as well. Yes I know they set the retail price. However I was under the impression they sold to the stores for cheaper so both parties...

    FF7 PSN question

    in Sony Discussion on 24 November 2009

    It's also because they would have had to duplicate some parts of the game on to each CD - the core parts of the game engine/common textures and models/etc.  When it can fit together as one file you get rid of all the duplicated parts....

Why is someone going to suddenly decide to buy a PS3, because Sony sets up something like this? Sony was taking a beating at price first and foremost, and they helped to address that, so there...

    How much is PSN worth to you?

    What game(s) are you currently playing + a small review

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 September 2009

    PS3 - Katamari Forever - I've only ever played the PSP version before, so I can't compare to PS2 versions. It's satisfying my rolling needs just fine, but doesn't have the charm of the PSP version. Some of the songs have been remixed for the worse - the movies and music just don't hit you in the face with japanese oddness. The local mulitplayer is tiny - 3 co-op and 3 vs levels which is...
