Playstation 3 Unveiled! Madden Will Be Sick Off topic but equally important :)
Posted 17 May 2005 - 10:18 AM
Dude this thing looks SICK!!! I can't wait a whole year for this damn thing though....why???????????
Anyway check out some of these pics.
The only thing that worries me is the fact that they have changed the controller. The current controller is amazingly ergonomic. Anyway, this is pretty cool stuff. Check out the link up top, they have some system specs on it. I wonder how this new processor "Cell" is gonna do. After all, they have IBM designing the system. I wonder how it will compete as well with XBox's 3 processors .... just like Microsoft to add so much power with the inability to use it! I hate MS and would never buy their product willingly.

On the other hand, so may games are put out for the Playstation that it just has more good games.
Still nothing beats Gamecube. Better controller (that's right, I said it), better games, and after the Resident Evils I will say that it's graphics could almost be on par with the XBox.
Oh, and I think the new PS and the new XBox look almost the same. I bet it makes the parent companies happy.

I mean slightly better then the original xbox as it should be considering its coming out 5 years later and been in devolpent for like 6 or 7 and the xbox spent a short time in devolpment. It wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even compare to the new Xbox360 or xenon whatever its gonna be called. Just like the PS2 doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t compare to the xbox

I hate Halo because I have played far more sophisticated games as far as shooters are concerned. However, it is very cool that the XBox had the capability to network itself and is the only reason people like Halo. It's fun to get 16 guys in a house and network all the XBoxes and go at it 4 teams of 4. However, the XBox came out a year after PS2. Now the PS3 has all the capabilities and more of the XBox 360, alot more if you read some of these specs. I just can't wait, MS sucks! All they do is wait for something to come out and then copy it which is why they will never be any good. 0 innovation! PS3 is gonna be sick with the Cell. And those prices of Graphics cards are based on current retail prices. The card in their is a single card that sony creates. So you can't say that it is gonna cost 1000 dollars, that's just what 2 6800's cost.

Fable is the worst, I repeat WORST, roleplaying game out there. I beat that game in under 8 hours BOTH times I played it, and that was goofing around. As a mage I could have beaten that game in under FIVE hours if I had wanted to. There is nothing to do once you beat the game. The developers admit there is a bunch of junk they tried to put in the game but couldn't. Just look around, deadends abound. That game was a failure and a half and never should have been released. It is also one of the most linear games I have ever played. Being good or bad doesn't make any real difference. People run away from you if you are evil, big deal. It doesn't affect the straight along path that the game takes one bit. The whole getting married thing is a joke, as is renting homes or shops. The whole game is one ill-conceived piece of junk that should have been scrapped long before it got to store shelves.
Morrowind is three or four times the game Fable is and wasn't even a great game.
Halo and Halo 2 are the ONLY "great" games on the XBox. Nothing else comes close.
Compare that to:
the Resident Evil remakes
the list goes on and on, Nintendo is THE best production company out there and they destroy everyone else when it comes to developing games.

Ninja gaiden (best action game out there-amazing graphics)
Jade empire (best role playing game)
DOA ultimate (best fighting game)
Project gotham 2 (best racing game)
Halo 2 (I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like it personally. Not a big fan of FPS but was game of the year 2004)
Splinter cell (all 3 the xbox version has way better graphics and some extra levels and downloadable
Blinx (best platformer)-also voodoo vince and pschyonauts (great platformers too)
DOA volleyball (great graphics fun game RPG elements)
Just to name a few.
The gamecube new resident evil looks great (I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t tried it yet) but all the other ones sucked. I stopped buying them after I beat resident evil 0 in a weekend. I beat every one for 1-2-3 then the PS2 first one (forgot the name of it) then 0. its too much of the same old stuff. Silent hill is a better survival horrer game now. So was the suffering. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like the metroids as stated above IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not big on FPSs wind walker sucked and was a huge disappointment. No matter what they do they wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be able to recreate the magic of nintendos the legend of Zelda. Nintendo is too causght up trying to use games of the past instead of new developments. Eternal darkness was a huge bust also. Nintendo is not the best production company at all. The only game I play on the gamecube is Mario party. Those are fun games to play with 4 people. Its good old school like gameplay. Although I will try the new resident evil in time. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m too addicted to jade empire and I must finish it before madden comes out. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have the time I used to to play games anymore. When you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have the money u canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t buy them but when u do u work so much u can barely play them. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a vicious cycle

And I just knocked the hell out of Fable. I'll do it again.
There is nothing to do in that game. No roleplaying game that takes less than twenty hours can be called great. Morrowind was great because of all the weird things out there to find and do. Little temples with funny books, strange charcters off on islands in the middle of no where, etc. I played with half a dozen charcters for over a couple hundred hours each and still never did everything. And unlike Fable, you're charcters could actually look different. Fable they all looked the same because it was always better to have heavier armor (Morrowind you can get away with wearing any type of armor), there were only a few types of weapons, etc.
F that game.

PS has the best reputation as of stability, but I will always love Nintendo. I hope that Revolution is as sick as it is hyped! I might get it.
Also I was not impressed with alot of the games that came out recently. I beat most of all the games I get in 8 hours or less on the hardest mode. Command and Conquer will probably be the best game ever made .. just a plug for my fav strategy game.

If you think Fable is better than any Final Fantasy than, I mean this as polietly as I can, you know zilch about Role Playing games. Talk about revolutionary? Every FF has changed the landscape of RPGs. FFs 4, 6, and 9 are some of the greatest games ever made.
Changing from good to bad at the drop of a hat isn't changing anything, you could do that in Morrowind (along with many other games) by walking up can killing three or four people. The fighting style in Fable is a simple lock-on, button mashing combo style that has been done numerous times before. Marriage is cute, but not worth the effort. In a game that takes less than 8-10 hours to beat, why would I bother visiting my wife enough times to get a decent item from her?

I don't love that genre, but mostly I don't like fighting the same four ninjas over and over and over again. I quit shortly after the second or third level because all that happened was an endless string of the same enemies jumping out at me.
