    The Fall of HD Gaming

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 November 2008

    This is like suggesting that 100% electric cars will never happen because gas prices fell in the last couple months.HD gaming is coming. The real issue is "is it here yet?" and "If not, then when?", or how about "Did MS and Sony jump the gun?"...

    Get a PlayStation credit card, get $150 off a PS3 purchase.

    Conduit will be a AAA title on the Wii

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 November 2008

    The Conduit will sell 2.5 million copies... on the first day ...because it looks better, and plays better than CoD4, even if does not include online play.Even if it were on the GameCube, which was faster/better than the first XBox and is practically part of this generation anyhow, it would be superior to any X360 shooter in existance, especially if it was a cooperative venture between HVS and...

    Let's be honest, The Conduit is going to suck.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 November 2008

    I commend you for being able to see clearly through your usually dark fanboy glasses, Fry. =)The Conduit was, at least, picked up by a publisher... at last... maybe Sega will beat some sense into them.Those stories of publishers trying to knock down HVS's door are probably BS, btw. Publishers may very well have taken one look at this tech demo, and run away after HVS told them the game was...

    Yoshinori Ono: "PS3 shaders make Street Fighter 4 hard to Port"

    in Sony Discussion on 30 October 2008

    I don't know if anyone realizes this, but the PS3's shader architecture is practically identical to a NVidia 7800 GTX.If they're "having trouble" writing shaders for it... they need to hire some graphics programmers from... anywhere? ...any graphics programmers would probably do. NVidia's 7000-series architecture isn't exactly rare or uncommon -- as a matter of fact, "praised" would probably be...

    I figured out why hardcore gamers "hate" the Wii

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 October 2008

    The Wii is evil, in the mind of the hardcore gamer, for essentially just one reason:* It's too popular.Why is this a problem, you might ask?It wouldn't be, except for some other facts:* The Wii's hardware is practically last-gen.* Video game publishers like to make money.In other words, the idea of a super popular low-end console (its much less powerful than the HD consoles, than the PS2 was...

    Bioshock Screens: X360 vs PS3

    in Microsoft Discussion on 05 October 2008

    This Big Daddy PS3 shot seems bogus -- I have the 360 Bioshock, and have downloaded the PS3 demo... I just plain can't see the bad texturing, on my 40" LCD. Where did these shots come from?The PS3 version definately looks better to me, albeit not by a huge margin or anything. If I didn't own it already, I would probably pick it up for the PS3.  I also cannot see the supposedly enhanced...

    Sony Plans To Charge Fees For MAG!!!!!!!

    in Sony Discussion on 28 September 2008

    Garcian Smith said: So the Sony fanboys who complained about MS charging for their online service are now embracing Sony doing the same thing.Ahh, sweet sweet doublethink...   Why would Sony fanboys care about XBL?  XBL competes with PSN, not with some MMO, last I checked.  Also, last I checked, there wasn't a MMO even available on XBL, so of course there's umm.. no...

    Sony Plans To Charge Fees For MAG!!!!!!!

    in Sony Discussion on 27 September 2008

    Honestly you cannot expect a large-scale server-based game to not have a subscription fee. Name such a game that doesn't have it. (Guild Wars just has non-fighting areas on free servers, remember -- all fighting gets farmed off as peer-to-peer games)I doubt MAG will have a large fee in any case. I would totally pay for a $5/month "premium" service, if I got to play MAG, got a Qore subscription...

    Does anyone still believe PS3 will win the console war?

    in Sales Discussion on 23 September 2008

    I don't think any console but the Wii could possibly claim a real "victory" this gen, although I do think that the PS3 will pull well ahead of the 360 in a few years time, unless MS does something pretty fantastic.It is possible that the PS3 could approach the Wii's numbers in a few years -- as a percentage, but I think overall may be out of the question at this point.The only way Sony could...

    How many of you are loosing interest in the Wii

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 August 2008

    If the topic didn't have some truth to it, the fanboys wouldn't be so upset about it.I'm personally enjoying a trip down memory lane with Ys Book 1 & 2 (good stuff, for such an old title, btw -- I just picked up a used copy of the PS2 Ys as well), and Shining Force (which I had never played... again its awesome), but yeah, aside from the occasional classic RPG release on virtual console... my Wii...

    Madden 09 for Wii bombs, will EA drop the "All Play" Gimmick?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 August 2008

    Um... guys I hate to break it to ya, but annual sports games aren't about "having legs".If Wii Madden doesn't go flying off the shelves at the same rate as the 360 version, in the first few weeks before American Football season really gets rolling, chances are its not going to catch up before Madden 2010 comes out.   That being said, despite history implying that Wii Madden will likely...

    Who else is sad that Nintendo is winning/won this gen ?

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 August 2008

    I'm sad that casual gaming might running hardcore gaming into the ground, due to the Wii phenominon. Its like the film industry being overrun with crappy popular formula action movies and cheesy romances. I'm sad that the games industry has reached a point where games like RPGs, Strategy games, and epic Action/Adventures may not hold enough demand to warrent development on systems like the...

    360 week on week slowly rising in the east....Why?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 23 July 2008

    Its the price drop of the 20GB. I would call the slow increase outside of this week mostly a coincidence, although RPGs are very popular in Japan, and the 360 has a good lineup -- they might be a minor factor....
