    Legend11 said:This thread reminds me of the Nibris/Sadness thread that was on here months ago. I kept trying to tell people that the people behind Nibris were full of sh*t and I presented proof to back it up and still people didn't want to believe it. Now I presented proof (previous sales in the series, GTA is simply a bigger series period) and still people don't want to believe.If this had been...

    SE's Wada speaks out again

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 January 2008

    I've suspected for some time that this is simply the other side of the "Square doesn't want any one console dominate this gen" coin. Originally Square was very pro-Wii since prior to launch the PS3 was supposed to dominate so Square thought they needed to build up the Wii to compensate. Now that the Wii has turned out to be dominate (especially in Japan) we're seeing that Square is just as...

    X360 Anomaly

    in Microsoft Discussion on 08 January 2008

    I do have a friend who wants to buy a 360 solely for GHIII. He isn't savvy about video games in the least (he recently bought a $400 blue ray player, he didn't get a PS3 because who needs it, he'll get a 360 for GHIII, so yeah). I think the desire to have a 360 for a single game is simply because he wants whatever he thinks is the most powerful even if he never uses it. I imagine in 15-20 years...

    Growth of Gaming in US to slow in 2008

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 January 2008

    I agree Avinash, entirely expected but shouldn't be as bad as they make it sound.As for the economy, A) it's not that bad but I'll spare Avinash and myself the time and won't insist on that point , and B) it has very little to do with video game spending. For example, the Japanese economy was in worse shape from 1995-2000 than 2000-2005 yet the video game industry in Japan was better in the late...

    SSBB or GTA4

    in Sales Discussion on 07 January 2008

    @Rol, when does a lifetime sales bet come due? You're not planning on posting here well into your retirement years are you?I have to give this one to GTAIV but not by the margins that GTAIII vs SSBM would indicate. First issue for GTAIV to deal with will be the typical decline in sales of sequels (FF7 sold almost 10 million, FF8 under 8 for example although admittedly GTA hass a bit more...

    The Official Microsoft CES PR Spin

    ssj12 said:ya, I was reading engadget's coverage. the 360 did 3.5 billion dollars in business which is more then what the Wii and PS3 combined did. What are the chances of this being BS? 100%? thats what I thought. Actually, 360 did less than the PS3 and Wii combined.  (3.5 - 1) + (3.5 - 2) = $4 billion.  360 has been out for 2 years, has a major cost advantage over the Wii...

    God of War director says Galaxy has ‘vapid story’

    Kasz216 said:windbane said:Galaxy could have used a story. Super Paper Mario had a decent one and good comedy. Galaxy also has poor multiplayer, no online, poor graphics because it's on Wii (my opinion, I played it right after Ratchet on PS3). It's still a great game, and Mr. Barlog said that. Just because a game is great doesn't mean it does everythnig well.Nintendo could try some voice acting...

    Opinions on Umbrella Chronicles

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 January 2008

    I'm not a fan of light gun games but I am a fan of the Resident Evil series so the two kind of average out for me. Every reason I like the game relates to it being a Resident Evil game. It's cool to replay levels I played years ago in the previous games from a new perspective. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't much care for the game. It does have one thing that is somewhat annoying, why does...

    @samuelThe problem isn't so much how much coast there is but that wind power generates from -5%-100% of its capicity (yes it can go negative) at various times. With an electric grid where supply and demand have to equal each other there are 3 options to deal with the variability,1) have natural gas power plants on stand by ready to ramp up and down or be willing to waste electricity production...
