Re: Positive Playstation 3 Talk and Q/A

I would agree with this assessment. If you can find a way to fill the 120, go for the 250. I personally haven't, but I may. Espeically if Dreamcast games come true. I will sooOOOooOoooooooOOOOOO be all over that ****. I would agree - get the smaller size, unless you plan on using the internal drive...

Magic the gathering, Dungeons and Dragons

the question was recently asked of me, which is nerdier Magic, or D&D. I'm curious what you guys think.

Re: Positive Playstation 3 Talk and Q/A

I'm not sure if I just haven't sunk the time into skate 2 or what, but I defiantly have an easier time pull off difficult tricks in skate than in skate2 in retrospect. at first it seemed the controls were better but after 100 hours or so, i'm not so sure.

Oh, by the way - the new 1.03 update to Ghostbusters brings resolution and graphical effects; for anyone that cares. It does look a lot better.

Re: Positive Playstation 3 Talk and Q/A

By the way, Wolfenstein is so far a blast - I'm actually pretty damned surprised it looks as good as it does typically ID software's engine ports to the PS3 don't exactly hold up. Also Batman is as expected (see demo) a blast, the pigs at gamestop 'lost' by pre-order for the massive batarang ... dic...

Re: Positive Playstation 3 Talk and Q/A

It's a lowest common denominator for res swapping, if you're already at 720p HDMI for your TV and you swap to the LCD panel that does 1920x1080, it's going to come up - assume 720p is a legal mode of the panel? don't know about you guys but post the 299 announcement I've been flooded with relatives ...

Re: Positive Playstation 3 Talk and Q/A

Meh, lossless is lossless, whether it's decoded by the player or the receiver it's all the same. There's no 'garbling'. Frankly, I think having the PS3 decode it is better, because it allows those with older receivers that can receive PCM via HDMI to get lossless sound. The question now is, will yo...

Re: Positive Playstation 3 Talk and Q/A

I must be too picky about games. I finished the demo and thought "meh" and so I never bought it. I think I need to give up gaming or something - new games just haven't had much appeal for me the last few months. I'll trade you your PS3 for a wooden rocker that I have from my great grandfa...

Re: Dead Space - More Like Dead Atmosphere, Amirite?

The atmosphere of the game when linked to the surround effects, a tuned display is really ...

I wouldn't bother with finishing it, just make sure to check it out at some point for 15 minutes to see what they accomplished - it's very impressive on a technical level. Prince of Persia was a beautiful game, had a very bizzare plot, but tight controls and quite fun to play if not a little repetit...

You know what, I will say that to be completely blunt listening to the original guys crack wise about ghost hunting puts me into some kind of child like induced state of bliss - I don't know if I could rationally review Ghostbusters the video game if I wanted to, all I know is I love it.

For the most part I've tried to stay clear of the God of War pre-release content, unless it's purely performance or engine demo. While not entirely complex the story drives an one of the more interesting elements of the game, spoil that early one and you've got a button masher - an albeit beautiful ...
