hd-dvd addon is a pretty good deal with king kong and the universal remote.

hd-dvd addon is a pretty good deal with king kong and the universal remote.

yeah considering the remote is $30 and the movie is around $25. knowing your going to get around $55 worth of free stuff helps to sell a product [all thought it is just for a limited time].




also, Major Nelson has the whole X06 Briefing ["The entire audio, directly off of the audio board"] ready for download...

Oh my God.

Heavyness - thanks for posting that. Since I don't presently own a console (for shame), it's been a while since I caught up with what's happening, but WOW - I had no idea that any of this was going on. Once again, one game (MGS 4) is all that's tempting me to go down the PS3 route.

So cruel.......

GUITAR HERO II for the Xbox 360

The president of Redoctane is quoted in the press release stating: "The tour will continue the rockin' gameplay Guitar Hero fans have come to enjoy, and will now include expanded Xbox 360 (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/735/735722p1.html#) capabilities. With Guitar Hero II for Xbox (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/735/735722p1.html#) 360 rock rhythm, lead, or bass guitar tracks with downloadable content and the new X-Plorer controller, designed specifically for the Xbox 360."

They also mentioned that the large hard drive on 360 and Xbox Live Marketplace creates endless possibilities for downloadable (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/735/735722p1.html#) content. While the press release doesn't state it specifically it looks like we'll be rocking out wirelessly on the controller pictures below. We'll have more on this title from X06 as the event continues.

i see no cords! wireless! i can finally throw it around my shoulder and catch it, throw it up in the air, and attach it to my belt buckle and spin it like ZZ Top.... ROCK!

Damn, they would do this after I just finally finished airbrushing my spare PS2 controller. Then again, I may have to gut one of the wireless units from 360 because their white spike axe is pure ass. Seriously. Looks like the kind of instrument a band member from a Saturday Morning Cartoon would rock.

yeah, i'm not big on the white/grey guitar either. i like the shape, but.... uh. maybe it comes with spray paint or the ability to take the faceplate off like the 360 itself.

WOW.


i think i just found my must have game! i love tomb raider games and this seems to have a simliar type of explorative traversing gameplay, but with much better combat.

The animation blending is superb. And the amounts of different anims for simple things like walking, pushing is great. Great Atention To Detail.

It looks like theyve tried to do something new and it seems quite a technical achievement. Thats what i respect in a game

thoughtlesswhisper
09-27-2006, 11:39 PM
wow (again)


peoples opinions on the bottom of that thread is that MS just kicked ass and that ass was sonys. PS will always be succesful no matter how much they **** up, but people are still giving respect where its due.

If you have a screwdriver, that's all you need. And masking tape. And an airbrush. And artistic talent....

Wow! I feel like a :bounce: little boy before Christmas day. This fall & winter is gonna be the best gaming experience ever! - and a most expensive one too!


-Assassins creed for 360 , holy sh*t , I think I just wet my pyjamas!

-HD-DVD add on - as a gift to my woman , :D O'boy now I'm gonna get spanked!

-Kane and Lynch looks nice and interesting!

-Halo 3 , must...play...soon!...

-Gears of war , can't miss that one can I ?.

-Spore on PC , a must have as well!

All this and a lot of other interesting 360 games on the horizon , soon & next year! :drool:


And I was complaining the other day and had to whine about that there where no
interesting games to buy for my X-BOX 360. I don't have to invest in a playstation -
there was only two games that interested me anyway! - MGS I don't care about now!
and the other : 'super jet spaced out monkey on crack' titles don't interest me a bit neither!

Now my only problem is that I probably have to sell my ass to afford all this new games! :D


Sorry for my bad English - but I'm happy and exited like a 14 year old schoolgirl :blush:

Okay, the bajo trailer is missing the beautiful secondary motion that made the main characters so animated in the N64 games....

Not to mention it's Rare. The last 5 years haven't been kind. I'll stay neutral on this until I see Gruntilda back in action....

Ok, once again, a bunch of cool stuff for my 'box, but why oh why can't we get some 'new' games on XBLA (where's my lumines?).

Doom for 800 points? It's open source, and would have been cooler to launch XNA with because so much work has already been done with it already.

I would gladly part with cash for cool new games, this stream of 'classic' games is getting tired.

well you get all the Dooms [all the "episodes" or "chapters".. whatever they call them] plus online modes and co-op play. trust me, many studios didn't know what to make of Xbox Arcade on the 360 and are catching up to get some games on it. look at Geometry Wars, a side project from one of the PGR guys. talking to my devs, they all have ideas, and i'm sure it is that way all around the industry.

if you want an original game, check out Castle Crashers (http://www.castlecrashers.com/) coming to the Xbox Live Arcade...

http://www.castlecrashers.com/screens/screens/border/004.jpg

...but yes, i agree, more original content and less "porting."

...we're working on it.

Yeah, I know that there is a lack of titles that are available to MS.

So is it Ultimate Doom, Doom2, and Final Doom? (Essentially the Doom 'Collectors Edition') - Yes, I've actually bought every Doom game, and the Collector's Edition, more than once in some cases :)

Even if it's just Ultimate Doom (PLEASE tell me it's atleast got the extra 4th epidose), I'll probably download it tonight just to rack up some quick gamer score + 4 player split screen should be fun at parties.

It's more frustration than anything else, I know how cool XBLA could be, but none of the games have really grabbed me (except geometry wars) and I've ended up spending all my credits on Oblivion addons. It's not that I object to the classic titles, I'm intensely jealous that the PSP got Lemmings and Cannon Fodder, but it'd be great to have some more stuff like Geometry Wars which is fresh and new :)

And yes, I'm hanging for Castle Crashers as well :)

Maybe I should stop whining and get back to playing the dozen or so half complete games I've got stacked up next to my TV :)

iloved everything i saw in that demo.
im really happy they focused on gameplay and the actual character animations as well as the fancy graphics stuff.

gee, did the Matrix effect every 10 seconds tip you off on that?

i think the time setting will change with every assassination. your a character from a long line of assassins that had taken a creed and or what not.

either which way, still looks good, can't wait to play!
