Anyone here have the new Nintendo Wii system? Opinions on how it runs? PS3 or Wii, which would you get?

first of all: i dont think youre in the right place asking these types of questions. You probably wont get much information out of the people here as you would get out of people in a gaming forum.

That being said...

The teasers i have seen for nintendo wii gives me the impression that its childish and that the games are not that good. I bet like all interactive games (singstar, buzz, guitarhero etc..) its crazy fun for like a month and then you get tired of it. I saw some clips of fishing games, tennis games, ping pong, swordfighting and boxing etc, and the graphics seemed poor and the gaming options limited. The combination between you having to move like crazy with the controller and the limited gaming options probably takes the fun out of the games pretty quick.

I have a x-box 360 and i am very happy with it. Mainly because of the live options. Havent tried/dont know anything about the PS3 but im sure that will be ok too. Depends on what games you like. But if PS3 dont have the same live options as 360 i would go for the 360.

To put it short :,>
Nintendo Wiiiii is for fun , just chilling with a couple of friends after some alcohol ^^
Xbox 360 is more directed towards the online gaming, Which can be really cool but you do need to have live else it's boring
Ps3 is just too darn expensive for my taste , but i'm not sure about the specs

nintendo mainly focused on the gameplay instead of the graphics, besides the graphics are not that bad it supports 480p. But the SONY is all about high tech n stuff, the PS3 supprots up to 1080p but also its like somewhere around $600 for the 60 Gb model. I wouldnt get any of those, ill stick with my PC :D

People who call the Wii childish for sure don't understand anything. Nintendo goes a completely different direction with it's newest console and in my opinion it is a much better way than Microsoft and Sony go. Zelda and Metroid Prime are still some of the best games around. I can't stand all the FPS games on Microsoft. Halo for example is boring as hell. I can't stand Microsoft at all just because they don't make things for fun or even profit, they just told, that they felt to have to go into the game market because of the multimedia sharings of the cake. They still lose money with every console they sell. A truly stupid arrogant company. Xbox360 has one game that interests me, and that is Massive Effect as I truly love games with deep stories which you won't get on a Xbox. Sony did some mistakes now but I still think it will have some killer games in future. All in all I go for Nintendo Wii and PS3. Microsoft ist for game snoobs who will always play the same kind of boring games.

Totally agree man! PS3 or Wii forget 360! The graphics in 360 are not that good, in some cases you dont see any differnece from regular xbox!

Well that's always the case at the beginning of a new generation. The developers had no time to maximize the graphics and still don't know the possibilities of the machines at all. The PS3 also doesn't have great graphics now. It will change in 2007.

I'm glad there are more people here who still like and understand what Nintendo is all about.
A game console is designed to play the games that are made for them, but if those games suck the console can have trizillion specs and 6D images for what i care, but those games will still suck and i will not like to play them.
Nintendo has always been about playability and looking at gaming from a different and original angle, and that has left us with some games that really suck, but also with some of the greatest games ever designed.
I have to admit i did'nt like the gamecube that much, just hoping that the wii will bring back the true nintendo spirit from the older days.

I still love the Gamecube. :) It had supreme games: Eternal Darkness (one of the best horror Lovecraft inspired games), Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Metroid Prime, Pikmin, Resident Evil 4 (better graphics than Xbox games), Mario Kart: Double Dash (still the best game to play with friends). I guess I had more fun with it than with my PS2 on which I probably enjoyed ICO at most.

Haha that's just bullshit! The 360's graphics are as good as the PS3's. Have you seen Gears of War yet? That game looks amazing! And it's not just the graphics. Xbox Live is a fantastic service.

I'm thinking of buying a Wii when it releases here in Holland... But there aren't any good games on launch except Zelda.

I think buying a ps3 isnt waste of money cuz a blue ray player is around $1000 but a 60gb ps3 is only around $600 u get to play games and watch movies in HD (1080p). i think it is worth of buying it!!

Besides no intelligent people buy concoles at the start, due to the children illnes and the price. Wait until middle of 2007 und you will get a bug free Xbox360 for 300, PS3 for 400 and Wii for 200. I personally will wait until the Wii gets a special edition (different color with a game bundle) and the PS3 costs 300 Euro. I will maybe take a year from here but I still have to buy 10000 games I want to play for less than 10 Euro for the PS2 and Gamecube. Like Shadow Of The Colossus, Okami, Resident Evil Zero, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 etc. The list is unending, so there is no matter to hurry. :)

the Wii is where its at. gaming has always been about evolution and nintendo prove this time and time again. theyve made so much innovation and such you cant ever put them down like that. Zelda TP. will be the game of the year this year no doubt. If you wanted good graphics and all that jazz then watch a star wars movie or LOTR. If you want to have fun whilst interacting with on screen characters in a new and interesting way get a Wii.

I totally agree with Epilogue! I have been a fan of Zelda since it came out REGULAR nintendo and have been re-playing the whole series till now on the other systems nintendo created. Now that I have bought the Nintendo Wii for my son and playing the new Zelda is so much fun, the story has so much depth;and being that iteractive..no words! One more thing, you cannot go wrong with a system that has produce games that predominately occupy most of the slots in the top 10 best video games in the history of humanity.

I also purchased the PS3 and the grphics are gr8. I have all the systems going back to pong and the biggest purchase regret it have is XBOX! Get a PS3 and a Wii!

Funny I used to run and moderate a gaming section in another forum once. But the Wii is worth the money and so much more. The indepthness and level of interactivity is amazing. Some guys are obviously geared for everyone but there are games for the more "adult" gamer as well. The Godfather is a great game using the controllers and soon Rockstar's Manhunt 2 will be coming for the Wii as well. I can't wait to see how they will use the controllers for that! All in all it's worth it.

I bought one for my family, but then I couldn't find one out here to get another one. I have a 360 right now of which I rarely play and the last game I got was Guitar Hero 2 cause I was bored and wanted that damn guitar and see what everyone was going on about.

Other then that I'd be playing with the Wii. Games are much cheaper as well and plus you can download and buy old games to play on the system. Kind of like Live Arcade for the Xbox just more classic stuff worth owning.


A side note Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix will be coming to Xbox Live Marketplace with completely new redesigned higher resolution characters and animation for full HD. YOu can only download the game but you can play against ppl online, offline and just against the computer. IT's going to be the BEST SF since the original SF2!

Having played on all 3:

The Wii is a party console. FUN FUN FUN
The Xbox 360 is a damn good console, with some GREAT games.
The Xbox 360 Elite will be THE console!!!! (PS3 slaying hard drive + HDMI)
PS3 has a clumsy menu system, flimsy controllers and no rumble feature.

Unless your TV is HD and +40" there is no difference in graphics between the 360 and PS3, and even then its only a "geek" difference, and the difference between them and the graphics on Doom3 on Xbox is next to nothing on a normal tv.
PS3 doesn't have any good games yet.
PS3 doesn't have rumble, which is about as essential as a TV to modern gaming in my view!
Sony can't make operating systems, Microsoft "can".

I own a 360 by the way and i've had it ages, and it hasn't broke.

If Sony releases rumble support, some great PS3 only games, and by this time the Xbox 720 hasn't been released with way better specs than the PS3, i will probably buy a PS3.

I'd love to see that Street fighter man. I love that game. I have it on my 360.

A couple of weeks ago i bought a NES from internet. i paid 10 euro (granpa & granma). the thing is almost new. I asked a vintage gameshop. They told me because i had the NES pack without mario/duckhunt just the box it came in is worth about 80euro's. Because back when the NES came out almost everyone bought the mario/duckhunt version. And the box doest have a scratch and is complete with book and everything.

first of all: i dont think youre in the right place asking these types of questions. You probably wont get much information out of the people here as you would get out of people in a gaming forum.

I think you've come to the right place! There must be gamers on here,

I beleive it comes down the personal preference, Nintendo for me always produce quality titles that everyone can enjoy, they're even starting to release more adult themed titles so variety is good, same goes with Sony,. both have a large back-catalogue of really good franchised games such as Mario series, Grand theft auto etc,...

As for performance, its always best to keep in mind what kind of gamer you are, for me its simple, right now if you prefer graphics over gameplay then go for a PS3, if its gameplay over graphics then its the Wii.

Both consoles only have a handful of 'wow' games available at the moment, but you have to remember these consoles havn't even seen over a year of shelf life,

that goes for the power of the systems, remember GTA:3 on the ps2? compare it to GTA: San andreas ps2 and you get what I mean, same with Nintendo, .. Resident evil series on the gamecube, to looking at the Resident Evil 4, ...developers only touch the surface of the hardwares capability at the start of their shelf life, which on average lasts 5 years give or take.

As for the price tag, you really do get what you pay for,

PS3's pricetag can seem off-putting to most gamers, which might explain its slow sales in comparison with the Wii, .. but at the end of the day not only does it pack the most advanced hard-ware it also has a blu-ray drive, which still works out cheaper than buying a stand-alone blu-ray player.

The Wii's hardware is more or less an upgrade of the Gamecube (ie its CPU has been over-clocked and GPU boasting more RAM), which makes it out to be approx 4 times more powerful,..but still only managing to equal the power of the X-box 1.

That said, although it isn't as 'next-gen' as the PS3 and 360 only being able to run at a resolution of 480 compared to 1020 its main advantage is its unique control system,... which you should already know about anyways,

Don't be off-put by the loads of bad games out using this control system as more of a 'gimmick', developers are just lazy and bringing ports of old ps2 games over, ,... rest assured there are a stack of excellent games to be released over the next few weeks,


I think I'll stop there, at the end of the day you have to go with what you've done in the past, if you've gone with a PS2 over a Gamecube then you've answered your own question, but if you like a mix of games and purchase both consoles you really won't be dissapointed in the Wii!

Anyone got Guitar Hero 2?! I'm tempted to buy it but is it worth the 60+?

chrisc
23rd June 2007, 17:12
Don't own guitar hero 2 but looking back on GH1 and even donkey konga I'd say its worth the pricetag,

Stupidly addictive gaming and its on-line too!

Ghost
23rd June 2007, 19:35
Guitar Hero 2 I'd say is kinda worth it. I just think it sucks that before it was like $60-70 for the Guitar and game, and now it's upped to $90. I caved in and got it anyways. They improved a bit on it but I think it's definitely worth it for the 360. Better to have another buddy get a controller and plug in to play back up guitar or bass, or even go head to head!
What makes this even more worth it is the fact that you can buy new songs off the Live MarketPlace, that alone is worth the extra payment (well if only they through in some extra songs)

But you might want to wait till Guitar Hero 3 comes out later in the year. The songs will be even better, some will actually be sung by the original bands, plus it'll come with a Les Paul Gibson styled controller that will be wireless for the Xbox. Unfortunately I will cave in and get it too since they'll have Smashing Pumpkins on there. Rumour has it that the last song will be Stairway to Heaven. If you noticed the first Guitar Hero said "No Free Bird" constantly. GH2 has Free Bird at the end of the game but throughout it tells you, "No Stairway!" So that's what might be big.
Also more multiplayer options which will be more fun. I only wish you could play vs online, which I'm not sure might be the case this time.

My tag is Hum 4 CHAOS there's two spaces around the 4 :) My account ends next month but I'll be back as soon as Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD remix comes out :)

So uh, this may be way beyond the geekdom and nerdage found in this thread -- None of which I am attacking cause I'm a HUGE geek, not nerd, my self -- But does anyone play WoW, World of Warcraft, by any chance? I recently got swept up in the 'online sensation' :P

Get out while you can bro! My brother is totally addicted to the game and he has to quit school because he only played this game..day and night, therefor his grades weren't high enough. If you want to keep your normal life, than don't play this game!!
I'm serious..tryin' to save your life here man :wink:

Lol. Its hardly my life. I'm probably more active than alot of people, actually. Just something I play a couple hours a week. Oh, and I'm not worried about my grades either. That's the last of my worries (I do very well school with minimal effort). :)

I already work 4 days a week, 8 hours a day, and play paintball all day for atleast one day every week, then, on one of my other two days off, im playing hockey for atleast 2-3 hours and hanging out side.

WoW is just somethign I can pick up and play when I've got nothing else to do and I like that. Racing games and FPS have just become too routine and boring for me. I used to play CS all the time and pretty much every mod that came w/ it, but it was all the same and extremely boring. Not to mention there were countless hacks that ruined all these games.

Just in response to the originally posted question, I have no intention of buying a horrendously overpriced PS3 until it receives yet another price drop. Not a cent more than $300, that my limit. I really want to play MGS:4 already! I have been following that series since...the beginning.

Ghost
10th July 2007, 10:48
Well it's a big drop. Considering they were way underselling it to begin with. They have over $1000 worth of tech in that thing and selling it for what they did was already a massive blow. $499 PLUS 5 free BR DVDs from Sony plus some other free shit from Amazon, kind of a hard deal to pass up. I might just get it so I can play BR discs since I already have an HD DVD player. Only drawback so far is that it's the emulator system that's replacing the old Emotion engine that was the old PS2 in the systems and that it has not been updated with the new Java codecs to handle the Blu Ray interfacing.

PS3 $500US only. At the current rate we should only paying $581AUS for them but they are charging us $980AUS without 5 free BR DVDs.

We have a wii and 360 at home, though dont think me or my brother would want a ps3...unless dynasty warriors comes out and is amazing.
Other then that, i think it may just quickly die out like the psp. <lol DS FTW!

Ahhh!! See! That's how I know you like redundant games! Dynasty Warriors?! Talk about one of the most boring games ever made! Just playing the demo when the original PS2 came out was enough to say I'm never playing this game again! I'm just waiting for Metal Gear Solid 4 and that's about it!

Sony will get killer games with time (Only think about the ICO and Shadow Of The Colossus sequels, Killzone 2, MGS4, all the Ratchet and Clanks etc.) and though it is too expensive for me at the moment, I would take it anytime over a crappy Xbox which has to be sent in about 10 times because it breaks all the time. I will wait for the price of 350 Euro or something in the way. The price cut in the USA was useless, as the 60GB PS dissapears in the next months, so it's more like a sellout. What really angries me is that Europe is treated so bad. I wish the whole Europe would boycott Sony just that they can learn from it and things get better.

Yeah maybe,
but the problem is that Playstation isn't coming with good games that are PS3 exclusive.
Maybe a few but really not much.
As I see it, Xbox360 is on top atm.
And will stay at the top. They have more exclusive titels and a lot of people already own a 360.
I could be wrong but I see it this way. I'm not saying PS3 has bad games!
Just not many exclusive titels ;) .

Epilogue
13th July 2007, 20:54
That's why I said that they will come. At the end of 08 Sony will have more. You will remember my words. And not Xbox is on the top but the Wii. And with Wii Fit I don't see anything on the horizon, that that will stop them in crushing Sony and Microsoft into the ground. I see the millions of houswives buying Wii Fit just to lose on weight and do Yoga.

drydenimbabeeh
13th July 2007, 21:10
Yeah lol they will have exclusive titels of course. But they aren't all that good man.
And especially a PS3 is a waste of money. Why would you buy a console that costs the same as an Xbox360 plus a Wii together?
Oh well maybe it's just me but thats my opinion ;)

13th July 2007, 21:21
Sony and Microsoft are gonna drop the prices on the ps3 and xbox360, that's because they wanna keep up with the succes of nintendo's wii, which is relatively cheap. So somewhat this year the ps3 will be dropped to 499 instead of 599 i thought and i can't remember the new price of the 360..but it'll drop aswell. So maybe you can still buy an xbox and a wii for the same price as a ps3, but that price will be lower now :D Read about this in the financial times this week..

Everyone has a wii but i dont think they will play it that much. Probably an hour or soo a day. I only played mine for the first few weeks now i havent touched it since.

Nintendo DS would be the best in my book. Saw a pokemon ds thing the other day in the shopping center. The place was packed!
Whatever happened to the PSP?

Because I get a 400 Euro console plus a 200 Euro Blu-Ray Player + 2 games for free at the moment. If I wanted a Xbox with HD-DVD and 2 games I would be at 900 Euro.

And to Wii: I play Mario Strikers Charged very often with my friends. The Wii is perfect for friends coming around. Never got this experience with other consoles, so I will never regret it. And because of the awesome seller that the Wii is, a lot of developers switched to the Wii and I bet there will come many many great games in about a year, and not only for causual gamers but also great RPGs like on the Nintendo DS at the moment. The DS was also a non seller at the beginning and everyone thought it will die fast, and what is? Soon it could break the record of the best selled console, the PS2. The Wii will go this direction when the flood of games arrives in 1-2 years like it was on the DS.

Thanks for reminding me of killer 7 ghost...ive been meaning to get that game...also gonna pick up MP3 today...

the makers of killer 7 are making a sick game for the wii called "no more heroes" looks sweet, check out the previews at ign.

Yeah I got to see a preview of it at E3 and was hoping they would show it at PAX in Seattle but they didn't have it. Looks like it's gonna be great fun.

New Turok game coming out too!

Manhunt 2 for the Wii comes out on Halloween! It's gonna be a must have!

And hell yeah Halo 3 co op online!

Call of Duty franchise is great but so fcuking easy. I play those on hard and while it's a bitch they're still way to fast to beat which is why I hate buying those for the xbox since it's ripoff at $60. I just get them for the PC anyways cheaper and better graphics.

Oh and Zelda and the Phantom Hourglass looks like it's gonna be fun!

Im waiting phantom hourglass soooo badly. Looks sick!
I already got MP3! Ive played very little..I love the controls!....along with it I bought the Wii component cables for my hdtv...I know it isnt nearly as good as 720p could be, but the 480p that the Wii puts out is pretty nice.

I'm about to head out to pick up my copy right now. I forgot I still need to print out my info for Best Buy.

***ATTENTION***

If you're all on the fence for PS3 or BluRay players, now's the time to act!

Buy a PS3, add free 3 BluRay titles from this list:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_5393252_1/105-8048423-9373200?ie=UTF8&docId=1000125021&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=special-offers-2&pf_rd_r=1P56HZW1X8RRJD41C0SK&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=305796401&pf_rd_i=B0009VXAM0&tag=blurayforum-20

Plus the 5 more you get from the mail in rebate.

So you get the 60 gig PS3 + 8 movies for around $475.

This isn't spamming it's a deal! I just picked one of these up again after I returned my last PS3 that I had paid full price for.

You can actually get it even lower then $475. I got it down to $465 shipped with free two day shipping. It's a must regardless of shitty games on the PS3, it's a great player plus it upconverts your old PS2 games too! Man after this I'll be out of the denim biz for a while phew! haha.

It's shitty but just can't help it. They put out what could be considered an $1000+ gaming entertainment system out and sold it at $500 and $600. They're losing so much money by putting this thing out it's insane. Even at those prices it's a great deal. They just tried doing to many things at one time and that really pissed off a lot of ppl.

It's a shame that's happened. Either way 3 year warranties are on now. Plus if you buy your systems at Costco you have lifetime warranty with them. I have never had any problems with my systems and I've owned all 1st gen versions of each console too. Knock on wood though.


Well, just look at how the psp has so triumphantly tanked...Im on the virge of selling mine...the only reason I was holding on to it was because of FFVII:CC....its taken too long and its only loosing value. (FW 1.5)

All of this (ps3 & psp) are just repititions of their ever so incessant attempts to push proprietary formats (at times amazingly convenient) that for some reason the US market never seems to grab on to.

Look at MiniDisc, it tanked in US but Ive heard has more fanbase in EU, AU and JP.


It's true it sucks but hey I like the PSP, granted I don't have one I prefer my DS but man, the new MGS is great! My buddy has it and I'm thinking of getting the new PSP2.0 or whatever just for that and a couple other games that are just really good for it. Plus the features you can do between that and the PS3 make it out of sight!

The PS3 is ****tons expensive, so I won't be getting one for quite a while.
But, if the new Smash (Wii) goes online, I'll get the Wii just for that.
If anyone plays Smash, prepare to get an asswhooping.

It's funny how EVERYONE says it is. Yet myself and a couple of other ppl I have met don't like it as much either. It's a beautfiul looking game (although not great, the models don't look so great especially for a 2K Games game) and honestly it's just a deathmatch combat game. Enemies take a while to die, run all around you, and you have kewl powers to use to kill them. I found it very reminscent of Unreal and Quake only with pretty backgrounds. But I had more fun with Unreal then this. I wasn't impressed honestly I was hoping for something great and I didn't see it.

For an awesome game from 2K I suggest checking out The Darkness. Awesome gameplay, amazing graphics, just over all very fun and dark and gritty! Must have if you got a 360.

It's based off the comic book, and basically you're possessed by a demon like thing called the Darkness and you can summon it in the dark, (in the light as well only it drains your power more) you have tentacles, demon heads and darklings (devilish imps). You're a hitman that's been betrayed by your own mob and you're out to get them. Very kewl elements you even get to visit what at first seems like hell but isn't. It's very worth getting and the animation and characters all are well animated and done.

See this is what ppl don't understand yet you even said it. Metroid IS much more then just an FPS it's an adventure game BASED IN FIRST PERSON VIEW.

HALO like you said is a shooter. The objective is not to explore and go back and forth all over. It's meant to be a GOOD FPS game on a console. Which actually was the first GOOD FPS on a console system. And still works and is incredibly fun multiplayer game as well.


Matter of taste my friend...
imo Halo beats every shooter.

I think HALO is the best user friendly shooter. I'd say as far as best shooters go for me would be a toss up between Half Life 2 or Far Cry. Other then that I think the best FPS game on a console before HALO would be Goldeneye for the Nintendo64. Of course you can argue that either Unreal, Quake or CounterStrike are the best, but I would say they're the best multiplayer PC games around and wait till you play Unreal 3. I think that will possibly the best one FPS, but if not surely best multiplayer FPS.

Not to mention Far Cry 2 will be on an entirely new engine that was created for new PCs and it looks ****ING AWESOME. There are no levels, just day and night. Real time physics and effects. You like the grass on fire, some of it might catch on to a tree and burn off all the leaves. You can shoot EACH INDIVIDUAL LEAF off the tree as well. Enemies will not always be in the same place or walking the same set path. You can catch them reading, sleeping, eating, they can chase you, get in a car and chase you until you are no longer in their sites. This game is going to be AMAZING!

Then you got Crysis of course, and believe me it's only getting better folks! HALO or any console game will have nothing on these.


Halo sucks.

I'm sure we'll all drop what we're doing and stop playing cause you gave us this very specific answer.

I was at a buddy's house a while ago...we played halo for a bit...got my ass owned...not really good at it cuz I never had an xbox or a 360.

Play me a match of Unreal Tournament or Counter Strike? Completely different story.

If you want something like Silent Hill and Resident Evil, those are pretty much the only ones like each other. And Resident Evil 4 is a definite must. Especially if you own a Wii. Though the Darkness isn't really like "scary" per se, it's more like you're this badass guy unleashing your demon power on just regular ppl :D Still it's only for the 360 and the PS3.

Thing is, there is a huge difference in pc-games and console games imho and that takes some getting used to, like I had unreal on my xbox and it sucked royal balls, I couldn't hit an elephant from half a inch away, while Halo owns on a console but I don't like playing it on a pc...

I'm more of a keyboard and mouse guy myself like ghost, I loved unreal, still do, I still play it against the bots when I'm at home and bored, actually, that's a function I miss in Halo, botplay, makes for good training and when you're home alone it's quite enjoyable, plus I don't play online with my xbox...

Im currently working on Oracle of Seasons for GBC...never played it so yea its fun.

Yeah wind waker was my favourite too cause it was the only zelda title I played till the end.. I never had ocarina of time and majoras mask where to difficult at any time in the game so i gived up...
Omg OOS? Lol I Played that last time I was about 12 yr? What about Phantom Hourglass do you gonna cop it?

Back to Halo...why I think that it is boring (well, only my opinion, so it's not a dogma). It's coming just too late. Bioshock shoot Halo into pieces. Bioshock is so good, Halo can only dissapoint. You will feel like going back 10 years in gaming if you have played such a masterpiece like Bioshock and then try Halo 3. Metroid is just not a fully FPS, it's more like a First Person Adventure that's why the comparison lacks. So guys, have fun playing games. :) I know you guys play Sims, when everyones out of house, hrhr. :p Just joking. My next game will be Pikmin 2 perhaps.

PS: Ocarina was the best Zelda. :p Though I haven't played Twillight Princess yet.

You don't read what other ppl write do you? You seem to completely ignore what other ppl have said. But whatever.

Ocarina is definitely still the best Zelda though I really loved Wind Waker as well as Link's Awakening for the original Gameboy. I personally think Bioshock sucks and that Unreal will be the best game of all =P Until Far Cry 2 comes out of course.

Dude how can you say Halo 3 sucks if you haven't even played it? Or at least the Single player mode.
And imo Bioshock is soo freakin short. A friend of mine completed the game in a day =/

From what I remember it was the first FPS on the Xbox.. and one of the best sold games on that platform.

You seem to post the same thing over and over without regard or counter argument to what we have written. Hardly connect to anyone? We're all posting about the same thing. How is that NOT connected? Surprise surprise? No not really.

And tell me how is Bioshock innovative? It's a pretty, short shooter. Oh there aren't many of those around.... Though I do like that it's not another WWII shooter. We have too many of those. And the story is completely original which I love. Aside from that gameplay wise I wasn't thoroughly impressed. Like I said I'd have much more fun if it was a deathmatch with 15 other ppl rather then play the actual story mode.

Compared to Halo definitely more interesting storywise and visually (so far). But there's lack of multiplayer options too. I don't think it's shown us anything new that other shooters haven't. I know I know, Halo hasn't either, but Halo is in my opinion something Bioshock isn't. And that's FUN. At least it isn't as fun. I mean you tell me why Halo is thought to be so great? Why do you think so many ppl love it? If it's so "bland and standard" why are so many ppl into it? They can't all be Bungie fanboys can they? I mean there IS a reason why it's still regarded one of the best. Though I don't think it is the best I believe it's one of. I know you're stating our opinion but come on, you're not a gamer or FPS fan if you don't play all of them.




Although I think the kewlest Zelda battle with Ganondorf was Twilight Princess, especially when he's on the horse then on foot, my favourite Ganon monster is from Ocarina of Time when you stab him right through the head.

Not to mention I want to pick up Skate, Stranglehold, and Halo when they come out this month. I should be getting Resistance Fall of Man sometime this week too. Time to test out this PS3 gaming boy.

Thats a lotta games ghost...Im also playing MP3!!! I havent played much...been busy...but I barely landed on the first planet....I freaking love this game...I already got used to the controls...hows that going for you?

Yeah too many games. I actually haven't gotten this heavy into gaming since the first Xbox came out. I sorta stopped after a while and the only reason I bought the 360 was cause of Gears and R6Vegas. And I have to own everything Nintendo so the Wii was a no brainer.

You know honestly I hated the controls in Metroid. I don't like the whole, if you move too far to the left the entire window moves. I have it set on advanced where it "supposedly" mimics how a PC game works, but the it still moves a lot but is more sensitive and isn't so awkward so I'm getting used to that. So far so good. I'm on the first planet they send you off on as well and sorta stuck since I can't land my ship anywhere other then where I've already been. Overall it's really fun. It'd be awesome if they'd release this CO OP but oh well.

Quick question for those internet/wifi smart people-
I recently had to move into a different room at my place that is kind of far from my router...I bought a new router that had more range...well I looked at my signal for Xbox live and it was worse than it was before. I was like whatever maybe it needs to settle or something lol. Well after a while it was one bar away from having a full signal (like is has been since I've lived in this house)...I thought, ok awesome. Everything worked fine connection wise for playing games etc. Until this week...I'd set up an online game for Fifa and holy crap did it lag...unplayable. So I tried Halo 3...samething. Checked my signal...it would move from Full signal to just one below that...which should be ok. I played last night with no lag, then I woke up to the same lag I've been having. My question is- what can I do or check? Someone told me about a thing called a repeater (sp?) that I can put in my hallway to get a better signal...I don't get it because I didn't have these problems before. Help me!!! lol im lost without live.

Ghost
25th October 2007, 02:12
Personally I hate wireless stuff. Signals always get obstructed by something or someone and it can literally drag your game in an instant. I have wires running all over teh house and that's messy but works better. Repeaters are mainly only good for situations that keep you far from it. If you're still within distance it really won't boost the signal much at all. I have problems at times and it sometimes is due to the service more then anything else.

Drewbee
25th October 2007, 02:23
Thanks ghost...

Ghost
25th October 2007, 02:59
Also depends on your walls density and all that you know. Might be shielded from something but if you've had good games then bad, then it's just the signal being tossed around a lot. Wish I had a better solution for ya. I might have to go wireless as well since I need to remodel the household and we're tried of having wires taped to the floor. That or just get longer cables.

one thing i don't like about gran turismo is they don't make the cars crash and get wracked. if you have played forza on x-box, you'd know what i mean by that.

i always have been a GT fan but i have a xbox now. And i really think racing becomes less and less fun. When i was playing GT3 i was in highschool and i had time to spare. But i just don't see myself racing 25 laps by myself.

Can't wait for GTA4 Though

haha well.. I don't know if it already was in GT3 or not (cause that's the only GT I haven't played) but in GT4 there's "B-Spec Bob" or in other words; the computer races for you. You can just choose between 5 paces you want it to drive and it will finish any kind of race from 2 laps to 24Hrs races :mrgreen:

offyatree
23rd March 2008, 17:11
well 25 laps is nothing when you had to complete that 100 laps race for like 2 hours which made your eyes red and wet. lol!

i remember i always played GT 2 everyday after school, and my mom was always mad at me coz i played from 3pm 'til 11pm everyday! lol, what a junior high kid i was hahaha.

my fave track is still N&#252;rburgring, Laguna Seca, Suzuka circuit, and that european street track somewhere in italy if i am not wrong, that's superrrrr!

Sooo...anyone else here totally hyped for Mass Effect?

I dunno if I mentioned this yet, but yes this game ROCKED! I loved every minute of playing this game and still playing through it doing different things as I go along the way.


Anyone getting COD4 ?


I got this game managed to beat it but never took it online. One of the best realistic shooters I've ever played. The Gilly Suit Sniper level itself is amazing and worth it alone. And others would say the online features would be worth it alone.


As of recently I got of course Smash Bros. Brawl and R6Vegas2.

Unfortunately my 360 got the Red Ring of Death and can no longer play until they fix it which can take up to a month =(

For now I just have the Wii and the PS3 of which I rarely use other then for PS2 games. But looking forward to MGS for sure!

Also for anyone that has a Nintendo DS, look out for Guitar Hero: On Tour! I saw pics of that and though I wasn't sure if it was real it looked pretty bad ass!

The single player is great but fairly short unfortunately, I defiantly think the online play really makes the game worth it.

Yeah that's the thing with these types of games, they're so detailed that they tend to be short because it's just too much work to create more levels.

There's a ton of great games on there that you're missing out on.

Metroid Prime
The Godfather
Zack and Wiki
WarioWare
Elebits
No More Heroes (from the guys that did Killer7)
Trauma Center 1 & 2
Winning Eleven 7 9 I think awesome controls
Medal of Honour Heroes (some of the best FPS controls ever for the Wii)
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Super Mario Kart coming out at the end of the month

And much more!

Not to mention you got the Virtual Console where you can buy old games from past systems like Genesis, Turbo Grafix, N64, and all past Nintendo console systems. I already have like a bunch of games some never released out here as well.

I like the GTA series, but for the fun factor I think that the Wii is much better than the PS3. However for those of you who are HD fanatics, get the PS3 since it doubles as a Blu-Ray player. Someone probably already stated this, I'm just too lazy to go through all the posts. Sorry...

SO,
I'm deciding on whether i should buy a xbox 360 or PS3.

I have researched, and it seems the 360 has hella issues as far as breaking down is concerned. My friends just fell victim to the "red ring of death" after a year.
and they aren't even heavy gamers.

I dono if its even worth the trouble of spending an extra 100$ for the elite...
and i dont know if i want to splurge on a 100$ instore warranty either... if its not even gonna cover the problems, because chances are they will just send it to microsoft for a month to get fixed.

I do like playstation though. I have always owned a PS2.

as far as game play goes, I do like what i have heard of PS3.
I also read that xbox 360 has a problem rate of 33% (thats like 1/3 xboxes)
and pls3 on has a 0.02% problem rate.

In anycase, anyone want to share stories? which would you recommend - based on control etc in gameplay - such as call of duty, etc.

save the biased opinions - please based on experience, not just loyalty to a company.

THANKS DUDE(ETTE)S

i presonally have had far less problems with my 360 then any sony product i have ever owned
i had a ps2 and it had a really hard time reading discs
as well the ps3 really does not have the gaming that the 360 has, their online is phenomenal and not to mention the 360 is far better looking and twelve times less bulky.
i have had mine for 11 months now and no problems at all
and it has definately been used it fair share
id say go for the 360, its more reliable in some aspects and it has nearly the same computing power as ps3
