What are you fanboy of? Can you defend it agianst me? (I'll grill you PS3 fanboys too... infact. I'm gonna grill myself here and now!) I'm a fanboy of 3rd party games. I like the PS3's hardware the best for 3rd party games. The best game on the PS3 right now is Resistance... while as fun as it was, it don't compare to FarCry... which is 3 years old. Graphically it's better. Graphics are great and all, but gameplay makes the game. Other than that. There are no 3rd party, or 1st party games worth getting near. Because of that the PS3 was a horrible purchace. I would value it at about 100$ for the purchace. (hey resistance is great fun and all. but it wasnt that great. and the fact BluRay discs still cost at least 20$. I'm not buying them. (infact, I'm not buying anything right now because I'm waiting for them to come to BluRay and then drop in price) 600$ for that thing? Ouch. what a ripoff. What I mean by I'm a 3rd party fanboy is. I think 1st party games have taken a 1 way trip to the crapper. If a publisher publishes/designs more than 20 games a year. With less than 2000 developers. Those games are gonna suck. (that is for last gen. Sony and micrsoft need 200 people per game... for 2 years) Nintendo is releasing close to 30-40 games a year, with less than 2000 developers. That equates to less than 50 developers, pushing a game out in less than a year. I like my games with quality. A good example of why I hate big developers/publishers. World of Warcraft. "It has been in development for 4 years... blahblahblah" saying that in 2004. I got the collectors edition. If you look through the book... the earliest CONCEPT art is 2001. Meaning the artists werent even modeling untill late 2001 or early 2002. They clearly lied about that number. The game had so little content, and so little to do when it launched, and then it received so little more content on a monthly basis, it was laughable. Another example is the new C&C3 demo. I install it, and start it. It starts at 1024x780. WTF seriously. Cant it tell I have a 8800GTS? Well... Maybe it dosent auto config... So I go into the graphics options, and try to set the resolution to 1280x1024. It says "Warning. Your computer might not run the game smoothly." or some crap. I tell it. ****you! And turn everything as far as it goes. (telling it "yes I understand" each time I change a slider it is warning me that I cant run it). After 5 minutes of toggling sliders and saying yes. I start the game. HOLY CRAP IT LOOKS HORRIBLE. (ok not horrible but I wasnt impressed) And it was running at some ungodly high framerate. I could never get the game to chug ONCE. And it was telling me. I couldnt raise the resolution. HA! In the game the characters are horribly animated, and there is no enviromental interaction. (C&C2 was a better RTS) The Goliath artillery unit, twitches, and fidgets like a dog. It even scratches it's neck sometimes. And for some reason. I just kept getting the feeling of Lord of the Rings. (yet I have never played a LotR RTS) Wonder why I kept getting that feeling... kinda strange huh? The graphics arent all that, unless you consider useing that 1 neat heat shader that waves like heat. *vomit* Ok... so that didnt amuse me. Let's try something... else. Supreme Commander Beta. Start that puppy, and everything is already turned all the way up. Just the way I like it. Get into the game. I spent 10 minutes getting my basic base designed and built, and get ready for the first wave of baddies. BAM they slam into my defenses and are obliterated with beautiful graphics. As I spend the next 2 HOURS trying to win. They finally beat me to a pulp. When I can spend over 5 hours on a 1on1... And enjoy the whole time. That is awosome. When I spend 20 minutes on a 1on1, and something feels wrong the whole time... somethings bad wrong. (C&C3) And I just wanna say. Before EA bought Westwood. C&C were the best RTS on the market. I like 3rd party games because they provide the most innovation. However sony is showing some neat stuff comming in the next year. But I don't plan on it staying. Not yet at least. I don't love sony enough to think they wont do what everyone else has done in the past. I play what I like, when I want, where I want, on what I want. Typically that puts me infront of my PS3, or my PC. (well not yet, but I will be infront of the PS3, or the PC for the next 6 months as far as I can tell. As I'm not even gonna be able to play Mario Galaxy to mock it for another 6 months. :( And no nintendo product with a date intrests me. at all. Actually on the Wii. lol. And C&C3 DID intrest me on the PC. Now C&C3 does not. (the demo seriously turned me off that much)
