Newbie (1/14)

  1. $14.99 at Best Buy right now. Saw this in the theater and was thoroughly impressed. Bought the bluray the day it came out, and it looks AMAZING. Just not a movie I can watch while I'm eating, lol
  2. I'm a firm believer in strictly enforcing the ratings for online play. Not because I think 12 year olds can't handle the content, but because I'm sick to death of hearing some whiny little punk bark orders at their team like they're the only one who knows how to play. It's also incredibly annoying when you kill one of the little punks and are instantly assaulted with animalistic screeching of "CHEATER FAGGOT MOTHERFUCKER!!!!" or whatever other new word they learned on the playground that day. Then there's the constant avalance of things they do to be annoying because they think it's "cool." Teamkilling, taking vehicles that they then crash (due to malice or sheer ineptitude), killing teammates who take "their" vehicles, crowding hallways, crying that anyone better than them is "cheating", etc. Basically people like the infamous Bishop (seen in video below), only now they have microphones...
  3. Not my favorite genre of music, but DAMN good stuff. Keep up the good work!
  4. Yes, some games do look better than others with the scaling turned on. Shinobi III actually looks better with it turned off. Side note, is my memory of the originals faulty, or is there an ever so slight input lag in the Sonic 1/2/3 (at least in the PS3 version)?
  5. When you figure that you're getting all of this for roughly $0.80USD, there's no reason not to get it. Hell, even if you only like half the games, you're looking at $1.60/game. Not a bad deal at all. Do I wish there was more than just a pixel scaler thrown on top of things? Sure. But for that price I can live with it. Now if they were to do some of these games SF2HD style, then I would happily pay $10/game for some of them. Sonic 1/2/3, Revenge of Shinobi, E-SWAT, or any of those others hand-drawn in 1080p? YES PLZ!

    Windows 7

    Half an hour from first boot to working desktop. For installing on a VM, that's not too shabby at all. As for the DirectX, seems that Windows 7 comes with DX11
  7. It's not letting me connect for some reason. =(
  8. Odd, the one time I've tried this with my PS3, it did precisely what you griped about. Took my Devil May Cry 4 save over to a friend's place, copied it over, and it flat out told me that my progress would be transferred, but that's it.
  9. Mirror's Edge is good for a rental, at least. Not really a shooter, but it seems to have trouble deciding WHAT it is. Devil May Cry 4 is loads of fun after you get past the insanely long install process. Gran Turismo 5: Prologue is flat out one of the best (and most frustrating) racing games I have ever played. I'm just hoping when the final version of GT5 comes out, they cut Prologue owners a break on the price. Little Big Planet....get it. That's all that needs to be said White Knight Chronicles...they need to hurry up and release the damned thing already PAIN. Mindless fun, cheap, entertaining. Sure, DMC and ME are both on 360 as well, but they're still worth playing. Overall, I bought mine for bluray. Found out later that it also makes a fantastic media center (TVersity, FTW). First thing to do (unless you got the 160gb model) is upgrade the HDD. As cheap as notebook drives are these days, there's no reason not to cram as much storage in there as you can (especially if you're going to use it as a media center and download lots of demos/movies).
  10. The story is decent and, visually, its a beautiful game. However, it's somewhat of a let-down compared to what the demo seemed to promise. There's less time for exploration due to the sheer volume of blues that come out of the woodwork to fill you full of lead. A few here and there I can understand, but having an entire SWAT team confronting you at every turn - all armed with automatic weapons - gets old FAST. Here's hoping the sequels (yes, it's planned as a trilogy) focus more on the originality the game showed with the demo.
  11. It is. The 64mbit refers to the amount of space the game takes up. 8 bits to a byte, so 64mbit = 8 megabytes, which is rather sizeable for a Genesis game.
  12. I figured this relates quite well to the discussion at hand.
  13. Ok, either I'm WAY out of practice on platformers (quite possible), or this game is just hard as all hell. I've never died so many times in such a short period of time. That said, I'm having an insane amount of fun with it. Never thought I would enjoy the thorough stomping I'm getting at the hands of this game, but it's the best $10 I've spent on software in a LONG time.
  14. Probably because it's the only thing open at 0100.
