    My PS3 "Fat" is fine. Here's what I think is the reason why.

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 01 March 2010

    My clock did jump to 12/31 just like everyone else's, but I've had no other problems other than the fact that my Force Unleashed trophies are no longer present.  I have a 20 gig launch PS3.  Therefore, I don't have wi-fi.  Because of this, I have a 50 ft. ethernet cable running under the floor to my DSL box.  I switch between the cable for the computer and the cable for the...

    From VGChartz GOTY awards, we can infer that the editors are crazy.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 29 December 2009

    Left 4 Dead 2 as Best FPS for the 360?  Please!  That was a big enough laugh, but GOTY?  HA!  Here's what really bugs me.  They picked L4D2 over MW2 for the 360 and picked MW2 for the PS3 over Killzone 2.  Not only can we infer that they believe L4D2 is superior to MW2, but Killzone 2 as well.  I'm not saying it's a bad game.  Far from it.  But how do...

    So where is MAG going to fit into the puzzle?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 27 December 2009

    With established franchises such as CoD and Battlefield Bad Company 2 having new releases, where does a game like MAG fit in?  It's going to be online only with no single player option, so that will certainly keep some people from buying it.  However, I'm sure there are plenty of people looking for something fresh and who wouldn't want to at least check out 256 person matches?  I...

    Bad Company 2's multiplayer is making MW2 look silly, IMO.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 02 January 2010

    The vast majority of my online multiplayer experience is in the CoD series, but I can't help but notice just how much more advanced Bad Company 2 seems.  The vehicles such as the tank, helicopter and ATV look awesome, MW2...no vehicles.  The ability to have 4 separate squads competing against each other in Squad Deathmatch, max of 2 teams in MW2.  The ability to destroy cover,...

    Differences between Killzone 2 and COD online?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 November 2009

    I've played a decent amount of the various iterations of Call of Duty online and fallen in and out of love with them over time.  I find it extremely frustrating at times.  I was wondering if those of you who have played both could elaborate on some of the things that make KZ2 online differ from COD.  I've owned KZ2 since launch, but have never touched the online.  I don't want...

    I'm convinced a Call of Duty Civil War edition could work.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 December 2009

    I finally got around to playing Call of Juarez Bound In Blood.  The first chapter during the Civil War has me completely convinced that in the capable hands of the Call of Duty development teams, there could be a kick-ass game built around the era. On a related thought, I think we're long past due for a well done Vietnam era game.  I think this untapped source material could be a good...

    SPOILERS In MW2, who else found the "disturbing" level less so than another

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 14 November 2009

    The airport level really didn't bother me much at all.  I actually just went with the flow and mowed down plenty of civilians myself.  However, the level that is really sticking with me so far is the one in Virginia after the air raid where you are fighting through the suburbs and around the restaurants.  It was hauntingly realistic and felt much more plausible....

    Seriously people, don't some of you have any responsibilities?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 14 November 2009

    I love video games.  From the day my parents bought an Atari 2600 for us to play, I've been hooked.  However, I'm seriously wondering whether some of you actually do ANYTHING else at all.  Don't you have duties/responsibilities?  School, a house, a job, kids, etc.? The straw that broke the camel's back and sent me on this rant is that I finally received my copy of Modern...

    Has the size of an install ever stopped you from buying a game?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 14 November 2009

    I have a 20 gig launch PS3.  I know it's easy to swap out the hard drive, but I just haven't brought myself to fork out the money.  There's always another game that gets those $ instead.  Nothing pisses me off more than a huge install for a PS3 game.  If Uncharted 2 and other PS3 games can look as good as they do without an install, why do other less impressive games have huge...

    Anybody else find online multiplayer more frustrating than fun?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 24 October 2009

    I just can't compete with people who obviously have way more time to devote to a game than I do.  I spend so much time swearing (thank God I don't have a headset) that it's just not fun.  Give me a compelling single player experience any day....

    Where are all the Wii Motion Plus games?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 23 October 2009

    So the WM+ has been out for quite some time.  It makes the Wii-mote do all of the things it should have done from the beginning.  I occasionally enjoy Wii Sports Resort with my son and had a good bit of fun with Tiger Woods and Grand Slam Tennis although I've now traded those 2 in because I've mostly lost interest in my Wii outside of Mario games.  Anyway, has anyone noticed how...

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 12 October 2009

    It never ceases to amaze me how many used games I see on the shelf at Gamestop that are in a generic case and/or missing the instruction booklet because some of you slop-asses can't be bothered to take care of your games.  I will never understand how you can spend your hard earned money on a game and lose pieces of it and/or leave it lying around to get damaged/scratched.  Furthermore,...

    What I don't get about Natal support in the next Gears.

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 11 October 2009

    So we've heard that the next Gears of War game will have Natal support, but I have to question exactly what that will entail.  You certainly won't be able to play the entire game with it because how would you move?  This has been my largest question from the start with Natal.  How do you handle character movement?  Walking in place?  You could walk around the room...

    I was/am a closet fan of (insert game here). Don't make fun of me!

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 05 October 2009

    I'm sure that everyone has at least one game that they're embarassed to tell people they enjoyed.  Well, it's time to come out into the light.  Maybe you'll find that you weren't the only one after all.  I'll start.  The game I'm most embarassed to have enjoyed was Unison on the PS2.  The game had catchy music and a great positive vibe with disturbingly cute/sexy...

    TV characters playing videogames never seem to look or sound right.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 October 2009

    Anybody else ever notice that when a TV character is playing videogames there are one or more things that just aren't right?  There's frantic/unrealistic finger movements on the controllers.  There's consoles with no wires coming out of the back (example: Everybody Loves Raymond).  There's modern game consoles being played and Atari 2600-ish sound effects.  There was an...

    I miss just looking at the back of the box to decide which game to buy.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 28 September 2009

    I sometimes think that the easy access to reviews/previews/videos is sometimes ruining the pure joy of gaming.  For those of you old enough to remember doing so, I miss just going into a store and picking out a game simply based on looking at the back of the box (NES/SNES days).  Nobody told me whether a game was good or bad.  I went in blind.  You maybe read a Nintendo Power...

    Sales numbers are not always indicative of a game's quality.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 26 September 2009

    I've seen a lot of people talk about how quickly ODST outsold Killzone 2, however a quick search on this site will yield you many examples of how sales numbers do not directly reflect a game's quality.  Mediocre games such as Wii Music (2.62 million) and Sonic and the Secret Rings (2.06 million) are just a couple of examples.  Let's go in the other direction.  An outstanding title...

    Breaking up with the 360.

    If the Xbox 360 was your girlfriend, she’d be an unstable, high-maintenance gold-digger. An anonymous games journalist runs with this analogy and kicks his 'ex'-box to the curb… Sit down, we need to talk. It’s no secret that things haven’t been perfect between us. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy spending time with you and we've had some really fun times together....

    Enterbrain: FF13 to sell 500K PS3s in Japan

    "Famitsu magazine publisher Enterbrain is expecting big things from the PS3 this holiday season in Japan.  Enterbrain president Hirokazu Hamamura told press earlier today that he expected 500,000 PS3s to be sold in December off of the release of Final Fantasy XIII and the reduced price of the PS3 game console.  Enterbrain is a leading publisher of the game industry sales in Japan, so a...
