Cloud's preferred phone is a Panasonic FOMA P900iV.

Well, I could be wrong. I only remember...
Code:
... the outfit she wore when you met her, the dance girl outfit, and the bunny outfit. Of course, her default outfit for 4 total.

There's armor you can earn to change the hero's appearance, but that may require too much effort. And... Jessica's only got three alternative outfits, and one of them's just impractical as armor.

GameSpot had another news story I missed.

Predicting that there'll be few/no games without in-game advertising in 2009? The concept of /that/ pisses me off. :P

While I have yet to seriously see it happen beyond sports games and some odd ball titles, it seems people are getting more and more interested in doing it. Here's an example of what I'm talking about. What're your thoughts on all this guys?

Personally, if games were actually substantially cheaper/flat out free, I would be able to tolerate it. But stuff like EA plastering ads all over their games, and still charging $60 for them on the X360 just pisses me off. And naturally it'd be jarring in more fantasy based games, and to a lesser degree sci fi titles. So... Unless I actually get cheap/free games out of this, I'd rather they rapidly back away from this. :P
10671  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Xbox 360 question on: June 09, 2006, 09:46:37 AM
To be more specific, the core system is missing:

HardDrive (a given)
Wireless controller (core comes with a wired one)
HD AV cables (they also work as SDTV cables, but they can be handy for component, non-HD video)
Ethernet Cable
Xbox Live Headset
Shiny Chrome drive plate

If you want some american prices for comparison's sake (dunno british prices)... Core system is $300, Premium is $400, wireless controller is $50, and the Hard Drive is $100. I can't recall the other prices, but I think the memory cards are $40, and the HD cables are probably like $30 since Microsoft likes to overprice this stuff. I think just the two system prices and the price of the HD alone show how insanely better (genuinely or artifically) the premium system is.
10672  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Xbox 360 question on: June 09, 2006, 07:38:24 AM
You can go online with the core pack and no HD - but you probably won't be able to download much. Even if you can download some of the files that're online, all of the demoes would simply be too big to fit on it.

Personally, I'd just jump for the Premium system - unlike the PS3, there isn't any essential hardware you'd miss out by just getting the Core system (unless chrome plated disc drives are a must have), but it's just more convinent, and probably cheaper, to get that and be done with it.

it just occured to me i dont think anyone mentioned phantasy star universe. sinners! lol

Normally, I probalby would've argued with you over such a claim... But god dammit, you're right. ;_;
10674  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Beggar Prince on: June 09, 2006, 02:48:13 AM
Guys, remember when it was posted about earlier? Well, It's out. It's going for $46 (including shipping). Anyone still want to get this, or no? :P
10675  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Never Winter Nights on: June 09, 2006, 01:42:18 AM
Well, I'm going to try for finishing at least chapter 1. I want to see if something I think will happen, happens. And... Bleh about improper punctuation/grammar. I'll just have to play and see for myself, as I can shut it out if it's not too horrible.

As for the disc deal: You need the disc to run the game? Maybe it's different from when you're playing a premium module you bought online, but I've installed the game normally and have played it without the disc in the system.
10676  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Never Winter Nights on: June 08, 2006, 10:47:06 PM
Bumping this up since, while it's nearly 3 monthes old... There haven't been enough posts to even make a second /page/ yet. Oh, and we bought the Diamond version.

Playing through the main campaign, despite the fact most people seem to think it sucks compared to the expansion packs (hi Stel), and I think I'm nearing the end of chapter 1. How well do the expansion packs connect to this, or are they their own story that may happen to have a character or two from this game? And any modules you guys would recommand? I'd espically like one with a strong story, but anything that's good will suffice, and the amount of modules on that Vault site is mind blowing. Thanks.
10677  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Freshly-Picked Tingle's Pink Coloured Rupee Land on: June 08, 2006, 10:18:48 PM
To be fair, the name likely won't be the same in the US - hell, IGN's translation was different from that name (Fresh Tingle's Rose Colored Rupee Land), but if the name remains half as stupid/awesome in the US... Fuck yes. :P
10678  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Freshly-Picked Tingle's Pink Coloured Rupee Land on: June 08, 2006, 07:04:28 PM
1up's story of the Tingle RPG and some DQ game. Yes, that is the name of the game. No, I'm not making it up. Also, Jeux France URL in the story leads to a scan.

Quote from: "Testament"
Crap, how could I forget Neverwinter Nights 2?

It's probably one of the last true western RPGs that will be released.

Graphic adventure games are 'dead', yet there's still some new ones that come out every so often. I think we'll still be seeing them, as long as Obsidian and Bioware are in business.

Edit: Changed it to graphic adventures. Thanks to Nintendo and other companies, there's too many games that fall under just 'adventure'. :P
10680  The Rest / General Discussions / Iwata sets japanese prices for Virtual Console titles. on: June 08, 2006, 05:55:31 PM
Neal: Good question, but I can't see it being that dramatically different - import system prices usually give us a good idea of what it'll cost in the US, even if the game prices aren't the same. And given the XBox Live Arcade, it would have to be in the same price range to compete.

Alisha: I may suck at explaining this, but... There's copyrights, then there's patents. Patents are on technology and inventions, while copyrights are for artistic (or 'artistic') creations. Unlike copyrights, patents only stay good for 20 years before it's out for everyone to use - as the NES came out 20 or so years ago, the technology, for the most part, is free for everyone to use.

Edit: John beat me to it, but he didn't explain the patent deal.

Edit 2: Wikipedia on NES clones!
