10666  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tales of surprise-rumour on: June 18, 2006, 04:49:07 PM
I'd say the bit of what it could be is worth pointing elsewhere, but I'd have included RPGFan's URL anyway. Not like there's some one URL per post rule or something.

I found what IGN said about the big surprise amusing (listing a bunch of Tales/RPG cliches for guessing what the game'll have), and I'm suspecting it'll ultimately be more of the same general stuff. Though I'll be very surprised if it genuinely is dramatically different. Of course, a ToD remake would definitely fall under that. :P

Started up Baldur's Gate again.

I don't think I can return to NWN's main campaign now, this already feels like a better game. :P

1up story.

10669  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Best Buy wants to sell you PS3 Final Fantasy 7 on: June 15, 2006, 03:52:49 AM
I recall ads for a mail in store in EGM that promised several N64 games that either never came out or came out on other systems, ala FFVII. But then you have to worry about getting as good of a list out in time for a magazine to be published, /without/ the internet.

There was also FEoE for the PS2, but it honestly wouldn't surprise me if Konami was considering at some point to bring out FEoE3 out in the US, but scrapped it in the end.
10670  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / AGP Video Card Suggestions on: June 15, 2006, 12:03:38 AM
After a quick glance, this looks good. I have a eVGA 5200 card myself, and so far it's been running fine. I haven't had i too long though, but I don't think there'll be any major issues with that.
10671  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Potentially Simple Video Card Question on: June 15, 2006, 12:00:01 AM
Probably a low 9XXX ATI card. However, there's Oblivion benchmarks if you want to look at those to see how Oblivion'd run, and I believe they patched it so it /can/ run on weaker systems... But honestly, a new video card period would probably be preferable.

If you're curious for some quick benchmarks for Video cards, here's GameSpot's.

It's also important, in regards of how much to blow on a card, just /what/ the rest of his computer specs are like. The CPU can be more of a hurdle than the video card for good graphics for example, ergo better to get something cheap. Likewise, if his computer is very powerful for one with an AGP slot, then that 300 card... MIGHT not be such a bad idea.
10673  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / AGP Video Card Suggestions on: June 14, 2006, 10:48:53 PM
I'm not sure if they're better or worse than the 9800XT you have, but the GeForce 6200s are pretty cheap at Newegg, and are a generation ahead of the 9X00 series. I'd go look into some benchmarks though. Also, I'm pretty sure I saw an X1600 for around $150 at Newegg.
10674  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Blizzard sells out (again)? on: June 14, 2006, 08:28:47 PM
Even if they weren't laid off, it's obvious much of the talent is going elsewhere - Ready at Dawn, the studio that developed Daxter, is composed of ex-Naughty Dog and Blizzard staff, and both Hellgate London and Guild Wars have significant ex-Blizzard staff working on them, or so I keep hearing.

I really can't fault a business for sticking with what's successful, but some varity is good - it's why I'm slightly annoyed at SE focusing more on their big franchises in comparison to the 32-bit days.

1up updates their story with Blizzard's response.

Admittedly, Starcraft could make for an interesting MMO, and at least it'd be a unique setting. I really don't see a big need for a Diablo MMO though, since I don't see how that'd stand out from the others all that much compared to Starcraft.

But, I'm overall annoyed at the obsession with MMOs and how they seem to be gradually eating up most of PC gaming. If some of these companies were still interested in developing offline games, it wouldn't be a biggie, but if someone like Blizzard would rather focus on constantly churning out MMOs... Well, bleh to that.
10677  The Rest / General Discussions / Awesome. on: June 13, 2006, 09:37:37 PM
Honestly, it's pretty hit and miss. But when it hits, it's fucking hilarious.

There should probably be another dedicated Webcomics thread, but for now, I wanna link Rob and Elliot. One of the ones I've more recently started to follow, and also really like. One of the guys also does Saturday guest strips each week for Sluggy Freelance. Machall's also started advertising it, so they have some comics to start off with linked at the bottom.

Beat the Spires of Ravenloft module for NWN. Will either return to SuikV or play more NWN.

cant we just douse him in barbacue sauce and toss him in a lion cage with a note that says " if there is a god he will save me from these lions" ? you know that would make a better movie than bloodrayne.

I guess we could use that to tell whether God hates us or not.

I have to hand it to him, he's enough of a nutjob to be more memorable than some hack who just eats the shit thrown at him.

I don't have a problem with the stuff people mentioned above (banners in sports, racing or other realistic games). Same counts for Square Enix's cooperation with NTT and Matsushita regarding that FOMA 900 series cellphone. I did not feel the product placement was off while watching the movie. As others have said, it depends on how those ads are implemented.

Well. I admittedly didn't know about that until just recently in a review, but I think that just barely goes over the edge - fantasy world with technology roughly in our level makes it only a small leap, but all it'd have taken is to make it a more recognizable item, and it'd be jarring as hell.

Also something I just thought of: Parody/comedic fantasy games would also be fine in my book, though it would depend on the humor. It'd be out of place in ToS, but a game with the same style as Slayers could probably do it competently.
