They're shipping orders on Friday instead of Monday due to Labor Day.  Next-day-air shipping would have the item arrive on Tuesday, the 2nd of September.

Enchanted Arms is big-time hit/miss material.  A giant miss, in my opinion.

Fuckers finally implemented the mentor system from City of Heroes/Everquest 2.  Now I'm once again, contemplating coming back.  I mean, one of the biggest problems with the game was finding people to play with, and a mentoring system that scales equipment/character/abilities was all that was ever needed to address this issue.

God dammit, Square.

Avatar: It's Sackboy!  If you don't know who Sackboy is, you don't own a PS3.  If you own a PS3 and don't know who Sackboy is, you suck.

Title: Nothing is more hilarious than watching someone mention how their Xbox broke, then watching others swarm in screeching how they won't buy the system, as if we were deeply concerned.  Drama tends to ensue.  You may see where I'm going with this... it supplements the avatar perfectly, I think.

Sig: It's a portion from Robin #85, where the Joker is losing his mind over how he can't seem to get rid of the brat, even after one grew out of the role and he beat another to death.  Most folks hate the character, but I think he balances out Batman perfectly in the comics.  And he should forever stay in the comics and cartoons... he becomes dumb the moment they try to put him in a movie (see: Chris O'Donnell) or live action TV (see: Burt Ward).

Part of Microsoft's problem was constantly cycling refurbished launch units when they sent something back.  They've gotten better about it, but it didn't help their reputation when you'd have folks who would be on their seventh or eighth 360 because they keep getting refurbished units that were prone to overheating over, and over, and over.

All I see is a business move that makes sense.  I could understand if it were an online game, or if you had to pay some kind of microtransaction in order to beat the game and see the ending... but this is just a bunch of services for a random JRPG.  Even with the knowledge of this content, the game is still the same as it was prior... there's a start and a finish, and an enjoyable ride to be had.

Why do any of you care?

The combat got boring and repetitive, fast.  It's funny, because I was having a blast initially... the further I got, the more I realized I was fighting the same five monsters over and over with different shades of color dependent on the location.  Seriously, you should not be seeing pallette-swapped monsters in the first few hours of gaming.  I could take killing garden vegetables for your first set of monsters as you learn the mechanics, but six hours into the game, you're fighting darker onions?  Come on.

That said, the music was some of Sakuraba's best, and it's probably the most vibrant game I've ever played.  The imagination put into some of the locales was astounding... it's just such a shame that the game felt... sloppy and disjointed for one reason or another.

The easiest way to tell that you're getting a Falcon 360 or later is the box itself.  Falcon 360 Elites say "Go Big", Premiums say "Go Pro", and the Arcade model says "Just Play".  The original packaging for older 360s did not have any of those phrases.  It was simply Xbox 360 Elite, Xbox 360 Premium, and Xbox 360 Core.

To further distinguish the difference, if it's a white 360 and has HDMI mentioned on the box, it's definitely a Falcon version or later.  HDMI was not available on launch models.  Lastly, you can check power requirements on the box.  If input power required is 203W, it is a launch model.  If it requires 175W, it's a Falcon 360.

To be honest, you'd have to go out of your way to find a launch model 360 for sale at a store these days.
2082  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Man, I'm bored out of my mind. on: August 19, 2008, 10:58:56 PM
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed demo is released tomorrow.  That'll kill some time, and it's a good way to find out if the game's worth a purchase or not.

Also consider picking up Civilization Revolution.  Play the demo and see if you like it.  If you do, you'll be buying a game with ridiculous amounts of replay value.

Slowdown'll be in the retail copy, that much is clear.  Unless it directly affects my ability to play, it's not going to bother me.  When Genis' Tidal Wave and Raine's Ray went off at the same time in Tales of Symphonia, the action onscreen went to a crawl, but it didn't exactly make me disappointed with the game.

The only thing I'm concerned about based on what we've seen so far is voice acting.  The battle voices are terrible, and if we can't turn them off... THAT will affect my enjoyment.  HOT STUFF COMING YOUR WAY.

Faulty argument.  No one gave a shit when there was slowdown in Kingdom Hearts, Phantasy Star Online, the list goes on.

Wow.  We lose interest in games over framerate dips?

Man, Skies of Arcadia sure did suck every time the framerate crawled during exploration or during special attacks.  Shadow of the Colossus was obviously crap, the framerate stuttered all the time.  Man, when the first battle started in Final Fantasy X after Auron gave Tidus that sword and the framerate dropped, and then it dropped again when the Sin spawn used the Demi spell on the party, I knew from that exact point that the entire game would be garbage.

Seriously, this console generation has spawned some of the dumbest gripes ever.  People act like inconsistent framerate is something new to console games.  I could buy complaining about the repetitive, terrible voice acting... but some framerate drops?  Bitch, please.
