    Default Official PSx/Xbox/Wii/Windows Games Thread

    I had been a PC-only games geek as a child/teenager, then for the past 3 years after I moved to Britain I couldn't play anything (except pre-1998 stuff), and now with the release of Fallout 3 less than a month away - I decided to sell my soul and got an Xbox. My honest opinion? Not bad at all. It took me some time to get used to a bloody controller, but 3 days later I only have some minor troubles with aiming.

    Let me say first - I've been waiting for this game - *wait for it* - ten years. A decade. And from previews/videos/screenshots and like dozens of awards it's already received - I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a winner. I've pre-ordered a UK collector's edition for Xbox, and also a Windows collector's edition for my brother (although I'm gonna rob him off Vault Dwellers Guide, Fallout 3 poster and soundtrack CD, but they're all limited editions. He'll be lucky to get a lunchbox with hardcover book of conceptual art, making-of DVD and all other awesome junk they'll stuff that edition with).

    Pictures -







    Anyway, with 4 weeks to go, I got a couple of more games to kills some time -

    GTA4, NFS: Carbon, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (which I traded for Medal of Honour: Airborn and Gears of War that I got free with my xbox. Hated both of them). New GTA totally rules, I don't get why so many people slam it. I guess I miss the skills from San Andreas, and it's alot easier to get away from cops - but other than that it's a great game. Humour there is just outstanding - be that radio broadcast, shows or TV programs/commercials. Plus, since I know Russian, I get twice more enjoyment from running into/running over pedestrians.

    Carbon is OK. I liked Most Wanted much better (just because everything took place during the day), but oh well. New NFS is released in November, so I'll just race now and again to refresh my skills.

    And I bought Oblivion just because it's made by the same company who works on Fallout 3, and it's built on the same engine. Lol, once you've played now-legendary Bouldur's Gate/Icewind Dale/earlier Elder Scrolls - anything 'new' is just old cliche's with better graphics (yeah, that's the reason why I hated MoH:Airborn and Gears of War). But it still looks cool, so I suppose I could find some time when I'm not playing GTA and go burn some goblins with magic.

    So anyway, what other games do you guys play/expect/hope for?

    I've searched for "games/consoles" and that one didn't show up. Man, I never dug the term "video", it reminds me of Sega 64bit with pirated yellow chinese cartridges.

    Let's retire the old thread and keep the new one

    never been a fan of pc games... hate the keyboard/mouse combo...

    6 years ago i got my ps2 and became a huge fan of the gta franchise...

    max paine, prince of persia, burnout and ssx are other personal faves

    my move for the next generation of consoles is mainly motivated for the gta4 release. i'm very impressed with the fallout 3 hype and i'll dl wipeout hd as soon as i get my hands on the toy...

    the on-line game-play and content and the blu-ray player are other features that made me decide to go for the ps3.

    once i get everything working, i'll post here.
    =\//-/= LIVE: once again, i'll make it!!!

    Not a strategy/P&C RPG/Adventure guy then, aren't you?

    The point is, keyboard/mouse combo would always win against a controller in FPS games. Quake/Counter Strike guys would rip console people apart (that's why I'd been a PC guy for so long - less arcade, more precision). Let alone I really could not imagine games like Operation Flashpoint or ARMA on a console.

    But, I'm contemplating buying C&C Tiberium Wars for my xbox. RTS with a controller? Gah.

    Stupid google chrome won't let me edit...

    And I'm actually surprised how well Fallout 3 is shaping up. Like I said in my first post, I'm playing Oblivion and there's nothing in particularly outstanding about the graphics. With Fallout, they've really done a very impressive job. I've talked to the guy in my local Game store who had actually played the game (full version with 6-hours playtime limit, kind-of your pseudo-demo) and he said it was outstanding. Man, October 31st can't come close enough.

    I got a 360 for Christmas last year and absolutely love it. I love it more since I got my big screen. I cant get into the FPS on console though, im like winterlessiceness and stick to my PC for FPS, but i do like the RPG, and the like on the xbox. I also love the controller, I have never been a fan of the PS controller even in the PS1 days. Loved the addition of analog controlls but didnt like the layout...especially for aiming or seering. Im a big fan of driving games, especially forza2. Im also a big fan of the lego series games and cant wait to play batman on it.

    Lego games is the only part of their franchise which is still fun. Their toys had gone totally downhill since the late 90-ies.

    i hate what consoles have done to first person shooters.
    everything is written for console or to port to it and it limits what used
    to be an incredible PC market.

    I just upgraded to a PS3.

    I think xbox is probably slightly better as a stand alone argument but...

    1. I have a PS2 and several games that can play on the PS3.
    2. I now have a blue ray player for my 1080P TV built right in.

    so far, I love the PS3 interface for setup, networking etc. took me about
    2 minutes to find the menu for getting on my wireless network and worked like a champ.
    I SURVIVED TEXAS LINKERS WEEKEND I, II, III, IV and VI and VII.barely made it to VIII time to slow down
    I musta had a broken middle finger for V

    Definately, plus legos are like $10,000 for a bulk of 50 that will make nothing. I think they went downhill once they went all in the star wars market plus they were so expensive, but i love the pc games and these new ones. The star wars games however are awesome and my wife actually likes playing them...mostly cause you cant really "die".

    I have a PS3 and I am eagerly awaiting God of War 3. I just went back and started playing through God of War 1 again on my PS3. It looks great on the system being upscaled and all. God of War 3 will not drop out until this time next year IMO. Kratos is just bad ass

    Looks like all the PS3 guys are going ape shit over this Little Big Planet game. There have been websites giving out beta codes and they are just getting shutdown with all the traffic.
