    meh at blerk. i'm still looking forward to seeing it. i'm a bit of a marvel fanboy mind :)



    admittedly it could be arse. admittedly, based on track record of marvel games there's a great chance it will be arse. but then spiderman the movie 2 and hulk ulti destruction were pretty damn fine.

    " go back the the start, the second F-14's wing would go straight into the blast protector (or whatever) of the first plane."



    but go back to the start and notice that when it takes off the first plane is gone and the shield thingy is down.



    aircraft carriers don't have loads of space on them, so sometimes you might have to do things in a certain order.

    i'm sooooo excited about this game. playing the last (movie) one on my xbox on a projector, just swinging around the city for hours was amazing, the swinging mechanic was just sooo good, much better than the more recent comicky one. all the same but with xbox360 graphics has me drooling in anticipation.



    but fuck me what a shite pointless trailer. i demand it get taken of the site for being an utter waste of bandwidth ;)

    nah, us mac owners love the 360 as it is essentially a multicore g5 powermac (as the original development kits were)

  • Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai

  • eviltobz  10/04/2006

    It all went wrong with DbZ after the Namek saga imo, they should have left it alone after Goku reached Super-Saijan level.



    but then we'd have missed out on the sheer unequalled brillance of when majin boo was freshly hatched, walked up to gohan and kai who were trembling in fear and in a cute baby voice shouted "booooooo" did a big back flip, landed on his arse, and giggled a bit. fucking genius :)



    ...One one person made it in the entire pre-history of Db, but yet by the end of the Cell saga there's like 5 of the buggers :(

    but, if you watch through to the end of dbgt you'll find out that they aren't actually quite actual proper super saijans yet.

    actually, the playstation brand is about the only thing making sony any money, the electronics side is rather loss-making in recent years apparently.

    yup, enhancement diversification has caused a lot of aggro, and has really mucked up some powersets, but a lot of people who have actually played with it and used their free respecs to modify their toon appropriately have ended up liking it. hopefully we'll see them modifying some of the base numbers on the worst effected powersets to bring them out of gimpage, but there has been a huge amount of people crying DOOOOOOOM without trying it (and maybe scaling back the difficulty levels a little) Reply 0

    and it's not called Rage in CoV it's Fury. it used to be called Rage until someone realised that name is used as a buff in super strength, so every gets it confused all the time.

  • PSP - now with DRM

  • eviltobz  14/10/2005

    "in what sense is DRM a "feature"? doesn't that imply something useful not a cumbersome irritation that makes portable material unportable? playstation portable indeed..."



    because content providers will make their stuff available if they trust the drm. if you're happy just encoding your own stuff to watch or pirating things then it's irrelevant, but the idea is that it can create a market for downloadable video similar to what apple have done with the new itunes/video ipod/abc&disney deal.

  • Fable: The Lost Chapters

  • eviltobz  26/09/2005

    i find people's differing opinions on combat skills in fable quite interesting. personally i found a mixture of hitting people with a big fuck off sword with magic to make me harder and do ranged attacks was perfect. my mate loved playing with the bow whereas i couldn't really get on with it. i think that the different skill types actually provide a good mix of combat techniques allowing the player to customize it to how they want to play quite nicely, and that neither melee, archery or magic were lacking, just different.

    but there is of course the fact that the psp, primarily a gaming device, is the only umd player available to the pubic, i mean public, whereas standalone dvd players were starting to become common around the release of the ps2 making that relationship more incidental. Reply 0

    "/giggles at the suggestion that transformers was in any way original



    zErOb_cOOl:

    Ok, ok. I suppose some Japanese robot thing like Gundam was around first, get me on a technicality, or whatever.




    not my point. hasbro bought up the rights to a load of different japanese toy lines based on big stompy robots from various anime whatsits. they then proceeded to get cartoons made with all these pre-existing toys whilst flogging them off. there wasn't an original (robotic) character in the transformers universe until the 2nd or 3rd series.

    /giggles at the suggestion that transformers was in any way original



    anyway, kameo then. back when the first videos of this running on the cube were popping up i was pant-wettingly excited by it. the whole changing forms thing was looking really nice and it was floating around the top of my ones-to-watch list. since the move to ms, the talk all sounds the same, but the vids i have seen so far all look a lot more generic 3rd person action adventure. i hope they prove me wrong, it still sounds cool, but i need to see the magic that the cube was showing way back when.



    (fanboi disclaimer. yup, i am a cube fanboi, but the type who owns all the consoles and is likely to own all the next gen consoles too, so the platform switches themselves do not change my perspective of the game as they make no difference to my ability to procure and play a copy)

  • 360 compatibility explained

  • eviltobz  19/05/2005

    "properly written" directx code should run on both chipsets, the problem is, given a fixed platform you can get huge efficiency gains when you write things specific to that chip and so devs will do so to allow them to show off their whizzy new gfx engine that puts all other games to shame.



    that in itself might not be a problem with suitable emulation, but ms don't own the ip rights to the nvidia chip so would likely face certain licencing issues if they emulated it. and even then emulation is generally flakey.



    and anyone knows that claims of being able to run the same game independantly of your amd/intel & ati/nvidia chip can be a little on the spurious side ;)

    original myrmican post:

    ---

    "Backwards compatibility means that when considering a new game console, the current Xbox owner will look quite favourably at a PS3 - given that he'll have to keep his Xbox to play his existing games anyway, if he buys a PS3 he'll be able to pick up all of those PS2 games he quite liked the look of back when he was opposed to the PS2. And they'll be cheaper, too!



    On the other hand, the PS2 owner will look at Xbox2 and realise that the only games it will play are a small selection of release titles, and judging on the evidence so far, all 'big' games get released on Xbox and PS anyway. "

    ---



    You are quite simply saying "there are no XBox exclusive titles a PS2 owner would want to play, but obviously, a XBox owner can't wait to get his hands on the next FF 41, or Tekken 27".




    the way i read that and all his other posts it looks like his argument is based on the assumption the ps3 will be backwards compatible whereas the xbox2 won't, which is the way things are currently looking. getting an xbox2 would mean you could only play xbox2 games, whereas getting a ps3 would also allow ps2 (and maybe ps1) stuff too. if this ends up not being a correct technical assumption then the post merely evaporates into the electronic ether.
