    My predictions fell flat :(

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 04 January 2009

    They're in my sig...   I realize I was pretty bullish, but I really thought Nintendo was going to crank up the Wii supply and that Sony would figure out how to advertise their product to the mainstream.  The current commercials seem to be aimed at people who already own a PS3.   I was pretty much dead on with the 360, so I'm happy about that.   I was also right that the...

    On The Fence With Disgaea 3. Convince Me Either Way.

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 25 August 2008

    I've been starving for some PS3 RPG goodness.  I've never played a Disgaea game.  Would you recommend me to buy it or steer clear? Thanks....

    Issues With Eden Trophies

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 13 August 2008

    First off, let me just say that Eden is my favorite downloaded game so far.  It is so addictive. Now, on to the topic...The trophies for this game are flawed.  Let me explain why: 1. There are no gold trophies available.  They are all bronze except for one (which is silver). 2. Some of the bronze trohpies are WAY too difficult for bronze level.  Like the trophy for opening...

    SONY lost 3.31 Billion on initial PS3 costs; May never see that money back.

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 01 July 2008

    From Kotaku:   Pricing the PlayStation 3 below its production cost caused Sony to lose $2.16 billion in 2007 and $1.16 billion in 2008, the company revealed today. Sony's fiscal 2008 annual report delineated potential risk factors to its investors, outlining that "the large-scale investment required during the development and introductory period of a new gaming platform may not be fully...

    Where are my epic RPG's?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 18 March 2008

    I'm too lazy to do the research, so I decided to use "community knowledge" to save time.  Forgive me. I bought a PS3 last month.  I'm tired of FPS's.  When is an RPG coming out?  A high quality RPG....

    OP: MoHH2 vs. CoD4 (PS3)

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 12 March 2008

    So, I've played both and enjoy both immensly, but for different reasons.  Here's a breakdown: SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGN Plot There really isn't much of a comparison here.  MoHH2 is a WWII side story.  They tried to be creative as possible, but it still comes across as derivative and predictable.  CoD4 is a completely fictional story taking place in current...

    I need some new MoHH2 maps, STAT

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 03 March 2008

    I play online almost every night.  I can't get enough of this game.  However, the current set of maps (six, I think) are getting a bit stale.  How much of the Wii's memory can a new map take up?  If third party developers want Wii gamers to take their online efforts seriously, they're going to need to start showing some long-term support. Then again, EA is the...

    Are Games Announced and Hyped Way Too Early Nowadays?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 February 2008

    My opinion: Yes  Imagine waking up tomorrow, firing up the computer, visiting your favorite gaming news site, and discovering that a sequel to your favorite game is coming out in THREE WEEKS.  You had no idea it was in development.  Sure, there were rumors and people hoping it would happen, but the developers never officially revealed their future lineup.  And now you can...

    OP: Professor Layton is the Best DS Game to Date

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 20 February 2008

    Just bought this the other day.  I didn't know what to expect, since I haven't researched the series at all.  I just knew the Japanese seemed to like it.  Well, now I can see why. The art style is beautiful; the story is compelling and dark (though transparent at times); the humor scattered throughout is mature and subtle; the puzzles can sometimes take serious time to...

    The PS3 was designed for owls

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 17 February 2008

    I bought a PS3 the other day (only cost me $177 after trade-IN credit). So, I decided to check out the store. The first thing I noticed is how damn small all of the text is. Why would they lay it out that way? It's not like I have a small TV (42") or poor eyesight (20/20 last I checked), but to read certain things I have to actually lean a lot closer to the TV. It makes me feel really old. Am...

    Cringer8's end of '08 console sales predictions

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 05 January 2008

    I just wanted to put this in a thread, so at the end of the year (when I'm dead on) no one can accuse me of adjusting my prediction.Wii:  50 Million360: 28 MillionPS3: 24 Million I don't mind if no one comments on this thread.  You can just let it disappear.  As long as I can pull up as evidence at a later date, I'll be happy....

    I am going through "numbers" withdrawal!!

    By this time in the week, I'm used to having my Japanese software and hardware as well as American software.  Damn New Years Day screwing everything up.  It's not even that great of a holiday.If anyone of consequence is reading this, when can we expect these figures?  I've bitten my nails down to the cuticle in anticipation!...

    These LG ads are driving me CRAZY

    in Website Topics, last active on on 27 December 2007

    It's bad enough that these ads autoplay, but it's even worse that they exist on virtually every page I visit here.  And they're not always easy to find (to hit the "Pause" button). It's like an annoying scavenger hunt.  Why should I even have to hit a button to make it stop?  Shouldn't it be the other way around?  If I want to see a trailer for a Harry Potter...

    Ghost Squad On-Screen Calibration

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 30 October 2007

    http://wii.ign.com/articles/823/823506p2.html"Also included to help make the "cursor off" mode a bit more forgiving is a Wii-mote IR calibration mode, where you're asked to shoot the bottom right corner of the screen, then the top, and then the middle, essentially tuning your IR for more accurate shooting." Will this bring us one step closer to accurate light gun...

    How much longer will analog sticks be relevent in gaming?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 August 2007

    Technology has come a long way in such a short period of time.  The pixel-perfect accuracy of such input devices as laptop touch pads, track balls, accelerometers, etc. has gotten me thinking: why are we still pushing sticks around to game?  Imagine a SIXAXIS pad with no face buttons or sticks.  Just a large track ball on the left, touch pad on the right, four...
