It is true and I already posted that:Originally Posted by Khal
No, i knew you posted that release date thingie, i meant the '"two versions" thingie ^^
Gonna write an extensive list of game impressions soon, but for now:
Wii gun shell, The Zapper!! (Duck Hunt anyone?)
SUPER SMASH BROS BRAWL!! WITH SOLID MOTHERFUCKIN' SNAKE!! WATCH THAT TRAILER NOW!
If the system has Final Fantasy, that's the one I'm going for. I could care less about the system itself, it's the games/franchises I really go for ^^
That being said, didn't expect news on FFXIII so soon. AND an expanded version of Legends that includes more of the Marvel universe. Awesome.
But considering how expensive it'll be, I'll probably have to wait two years at least for the price to go down a bit. I'll be busy with graduate school anyway, so probably just as well.
Thanks for keeping us informed Hermie
So I just got back from E3. I was there both Thursday and Friday. I got to play with the Wii, the line was like 4 hours long, but it was worth it! Zelda is so kickass, everyone needs a Wii - no question. From what I've seen and played, that controller is seriously unbelievable. If I were Sony and Microsoft I'd be seriously worried, because the Wii is just going to OWN.
I played with the PS3 too, and Heavenly Sword is awesome stuff. The PS3 controller is just like the PS2 controller except the L2 and R2 buttons are now triggers - kind of like the xbox triggers in that they bend inward when you press them. I didn't try Warhawk for the motion sensor thing, because I wasn't really interested in that.
I also had a lot of fun playing Capcom's Okami. Anybody who has a PS2 should seriously look into this game - it's just so beautiful. I checked out God of War 2 but I didn't play because it looked like just more of the same and the originally was totally overrated anyways. Plus the line was a little big and my feet were hurting.
I played the new Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for the DS, and that was really fun. After that I waited like 20 minutes on line to play New Super Mario Bros. on the DS, and they gave me a free DS Lite carrying case (even though the DS lite isn't released in the US yet - blatant marketing ploy by Nintendo). That case was too small to fit my regular DS.
Fun fun fun - I got some pictures, but I haven't decided if I want to post them yet.
Please do!!

EDIT: Also, i decided last year to get the Wii on release date, and after they announced Zelda for a launch title, i'll get that one ( and perhaps camelot's announced rpg, but i havn't checked which one that is yet - my info is about 8 months old )[br]Posted at: May 13, 2006, 07:57:51 PM_________________________________________________So, like always, Nintendo is there if you want to have fun ( in new ways ), Sony is there if you want to impress people with your new toy and xbox is there if you want a well-designed machine with a large amount of games available?
I wish they let me play for more than three hours. I only got to play for like ~5 minutes with the huge line. Plus I was playing while standing up, and while standing up you really have to pay a lot more attention to handling it. I'd imagine that while you are sitting down, since your arm can be rested on your lap and the entire controller can be operated with just your wrist movements, you probably won't get tired at all. It's another story if you are going to play the Wii sports game, where instead of using the screen-controller sensor, they use the accelerometer sensor, which just detects how fast you are swinging it around.Originally Posted by Khal
Well, Nintendo is there if you want to play Zelda, Mario, and Metroid. That and it's there if you don't have $400-$600 to blow on a new system. Sony is there if you want to play some hardcore action games like Devil May Cry, Heavenly Sword, God of War, etc. Also Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy. Microsoft is there if you want to play PC-style games on a console.Originally Posted by Khal
I hate you.
I've always seen it as the other way around for PS/XBOX, XB being the "hip and trendy" console, while PS has the big game library.Quote:
the one face i couldn't make how hard i tried while watching this trailer =Originally Posted by Hermie
were all easy ^^
wtf?! pit from kid icarus?? solid ( bad motherfucker ) snake?!?!?! wario ( the question mark here means "why wasn't he added earlier" ) ?! metaknight?!?!? kick...... ass.... w00t
Well, personally i don't like all that much games for PS, while there are quite a lot on the xbox that i really wanted to see released on my signature console... but i guess that's mostly opinion anyway. most ps-games are just ones that one cannot play for a long time imo... ( as in: fighting and racing games get boring pretty quickly to me, even gta - though that's just one of the games that comes close to perfect - was something i couldn't stay into for a longer period of time... like i could with mario games, zelda and most notably pokemon and advance wars... )Originally Posted by Hermie
conclusion: myself i prefer nintendo because they have a lot of games i like ( not per se the looks and often childish air, but the gameplay is just pure wootness ) and if there was no ninty i'd go the microsoft way ( people - hating windows is no reason to stay away from an xbox that's something like game-discrimination XD XD XD )
EDIT: People that aren't planning to buy a Wii because of it's current image, just play zelda at a friend's place when it is released before you decide which of the big three to go with ^^ ( unless you're a fanboy that is hopelessly in love with a certain type )
-- that goes for the other two as well btw --
I personally play PS2 a lot more than any other system, as the huge game library really lends itself to playing a lot. I'm a big Devil May Cry fan, a big Metal Gear Solid fan, and that's enough reason to keep me with playstation. As for the Xbox, I really like Ninja Gaiden, but other than that there's really no Xbox game that I really like to play. Halo is kind of fun when you are playing with people of equal skill levels, but it's not something that gets me too excited.
I own a PS2 (two, actually) and a Gamecube and a Nintendo DS, and I don't own an Xbox and I don't really want one.
Nintendo is just woot. I love Zelda. I love Metroid. 'nuff said. I love my Nintendo DS because it's the best handheld evar!
Let's not forget Zexyro suit Samus.
i actually didn't like how they added her ( fanservice ), because... two incarnations of the same character is just.... blehOriginally Posted by Hermie
( link + young link / mario + dr mario )
I was going to get a Wii just for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption by itself, but Zelda and Smash Bros. Brawl? Man... even if I had to sell my big toe I would get it.
My priority for current gen consoles is:
PS2 > GameCube >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Xbox
Next gen looks more like:
Wii > PS3 > Xbox 360
Nintendo DS >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> PSP
