Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Getting a Ps3, need some games now.

    I'm really surprised I'm the only one that recommended Call of Duty 4. It freaking won game of the year from many places. (And its currently on sale for $40) Also infinity ward is actively supporting the game with patches and stuff. Rock Band is tons of fun if you got folks to play with and can afford the price. (On sale for $150 in a few places)

    Your not the first person to mention this game.... I didn't type my games out, I took a picture, on page 1... CoD4. its there :)

    What's UT III like?
    Any good or a waste of money?

    I'm really enjoying it so far, but there is a bit of lag from Japan (as expected). I'd say though if you speak/read any Japanese at all I cannot recommend Disgaea 3 enough.

    Seriously? I watched the preview, and it looks like they took Disgaea 2 (which I love the hell out of and haven't played in weeks.) and mixed up the hair and facial expressions and said "Voila! Disgaea 3!"

    How different is the gameplay from 2?

    It's not really all that different, it's Disgaea. The courtroom is now a classroom, and there are minor changes to classes, how you aquire them and a new cast of characters, but I mean you come to Disgaea for the traditional gameplay, not huge innovation. The soundtrack is amazing, the voice overs are good and it's as enjoyable as it always was. Plus Prinnies! Who doesn't love prinnies?

    If one loves anime, Gundam target in sight/crossfire is pretty good as well even if a bit old. It got AWFUL (and unwarranted, probably because reviewers were expecting an shooty FPS with mechas instead of what feels pretty much like a simulator) reviews/scores in the west, and good/great ones in Japan.
    I might be a bit japanese-biased but i tend to agree with the japanese reviews. The game is quite technical, needs lot of tactical use of your weaponry (ammo is VERY limited, just like in the anime, expecially for beam guns,so you need to make every bullet count) and cover, and with the two sides campaign and tons of mobile suits to unlock it has some great replayability. Finished the fed campaign twice and the Zeon campaign once and still i'm not one bit tired of it.

    The Darkness. It is my game of the year for 2007 and I played pretty much everything that isn't on the Wii. It is fucking great and under appreciated.

    Are the recommendations the same if one has never played a PS2? I'm getting a PS3 pretty soon for blu-ray and will probably snag some games, but don't want to just pick up "playstation staples" that are more fun if you've played the previous 2-3 games on PS2.

    Egg: The MGS collection is coming out. As in, MGS1,2,3 on PS2 (although MGS1 is still the PSX version). Basically, if you haven't owned a PS2, you have to play these games if for no other reason but to get ready for MGS4.

    Also, SHADOW OF COLOSSUS.

    Resident Evil 4 is a must (no, you don't have to have played the old ones)

    Ghosthunter was fun and, along with RE4, is a really good indication that the PS2 is still a powerful little box.

    You also have to play Viewtiful Joe if you haven't already on GC.

    I'll stop there. I'm sure if you do a search we have about 3951032910395 PS2 game recommendation threads that will be far more comprehensive than anything we'll recommend here.

    I mean, I'm getting the 40 gig w/ no backwards compatibility and don't really plan on playing PS2 games. but is R&C still good if you've not played the PS2 games? Like how super mario world is still good if you haven't played 1-3.

    Mostly it's a time thing -- I could play through all the missed PS2 games, of which there are many, but w/ a full time job and a master's program night classes for at least the next 2 years, working through a PS2 backlog simply doesn't interest me. Especially if, for example, the PS3 R&C game is as good, or better, than the PS2 versions, and has fancy pants graphics to boot. But if the games are much less fun without that background, I'll wait on picking them up. Uncharted is new property so that's on the short list, but Devil May Cry 4 sounds more like something that's much more awesome if you've played 1-3. But I don't know, since I haven't played any of them.

    I must politely disagree. I found The Darkness to be derivative and boring. It's your run of the mill shooter and the darkness powers didn't do anything to help the gameplay. I was very glad when I was done. Production values were pretty high, though.

    To each their own. I found that the guns didn't do anything to help the gameplay. Towards the end of the game I hardly used them at all. More importantly what I liked about the game was the story and even more so how the story was told. This game is exactly how games should incorporate stories with the gameplay. I suppose if you completely skipped the story and only used the guns you might make a case for it being derivative and boring. But other than that the game breaks new ground on almost every level. I was more involved and invested in the characters, the story and the world since anything I have played since maybe Torment. It was that good for me. This is not a knock on you at all I understand the game isn't for everyone, but almost every person who has said they weren't a fan has had basically the same complaint as you. If you are playing the Darkness like you play CoD4 you are missing the point.

    There's going to be a wipeout HD? How in the hell did that pass me by?

    Is there a planned release date?

    Also, do we have any idea when GT5 demo will hit? I'm annoyed I missed the demo on the japanese store.

    Ugh, Six-Axis motion controls? I hope they don't make the fatal mistake of making them required. The motionsensing in the PS3 has been pretty horribly implemented up to now (It barely seems analogue, you're either tilting or you're not!).

    That said uncharted did it well.

    Other than that, I'm well up for these games. Roll on Wipeout HD!

    Ratchet and Clank is pure joy, and I say that as one who never played a single R&C before.

    Super Stardust HD is excellent.

    And Folklore is awesome, from my preliminary experience with it.

    As long as it's USB, yeah. I just picked up a cheap wireless set for £8. It uses one USB socket for the transmitter and works perfectly well.

    If you're interested in getting a camera for it, the 360 Live Vision camera works great :)

    I was in that same boat...picked up R&C on a whim after not even playing the demo. Very fun. In fact, I'm in the same boat as you (very little time to play), but I'm thinking about going back to play previous R&C games if they're even half as enjoyable as this. (Also, RE: Motion controls...R&C uses the Sixaxis for flying controls and a couple other things, and it seems to work pretty well.)

    I also have Heavenly Sword, Assassin's Creed, and Burnout Paradise. I have not regretted any of those purchases, either. (Oh, and The Orage Box for PC...excellent, but I can't speak for the PS3 version.)

    I'm looking at getting Uncharted, but I figure being a marquee title, it should be in the first round of Greatest Hits (or Super Hits, or DA HITZ or whatever they'll end up calling them). Maybe I'll pick up DMC4 at some point, also.

    I am really looking forward to getting a PS3 now. I've railed against it since it was released, but with PSP connectivity, the victory of Blu-Ray, and FUCKING RAWK BAND, I'm all over it. This thread is doing an excellent job of showing me more stuff that I'll have to buy.

    I'll just have to make sure that my friends in Vancouver never find out that I'm buying one. I'd never hear the end of it.

    The blu-ray winning probably turned a lot of heads. I'm planning on picking up my PS3 this weekend, and now have to decide between which game to pick up with it. It's between R&C, DMC4, or Uncharted.

    So which one is more "pick up & play"? I have a class finishing up this coming week and won't have time to get sucked into a game.

    Agreed. It's the best game I currently own on all three consoles. And I still haven't completed it, curse my gf insisting we play it together.

    Even I thought the undying love for Uncharted was a bit overdone before I played it.

    Now you can count me amongst their ranks. The game is downright amazing. Graphically its gorgeous, the voiceacting and storyline is amazing, the characters are all great, and the gameplay is addicting. Standing in one of the jungle areas I looked around and thought:

    "Out of all the games I played thus far, this is the first one that feels truely next-gen".

    It’s funny to watch peoples expression the first time they see Everyday Shooter played.

    If their not actually playing it, and not introduced to it, an innocent bystander, come walking over saying "wow what the fuck is this?" usually followed by a long pause then followed by a "wow that’s pretty bad ass".

    For the price and amount of unlockables, I think it’s worth the admission.

    It might have been possible... might. The AI is pretty fucking awesome to be honest. I don't think there is any one thing that sets uncharted apart though. It is one of those games where the sum is greater than all the parts. At first I thought I like Heavenly Sword better but about half way through I realized how much fun I was having. The Darkness is pretty much the only game I enjoyed more that was made in 2k7.

    OK, it'll be "next" on the list, then. It sounds like a good game to get when I have some free time and want something to get into once I finish up this class. I'm running through my month of "Prime" on amazon, since we're updating our whole living room, so R&C is ordered (and should be here thursday, before the PS3).

    It's late, so I may just not be picking up on the argument, but you mean body animations, and transitioning from one stance to another? If that's the case, Prince of Persia did that last gen too. If not, then fuck, I need sleep.

    I dunno... when people talk about games feeling truely "next gen" very few games actually make that transition in my mind. Dead Rising is one. WiiSports. Little Big Planet looks to be another. Games that just would not have been possible two and a half years ago on the consoles. Just looking pretty, or having a bit smoother animation doesn't really cut it for me.

    the amazing thing about the animations in uncharted is that they're almost always different. there's no stock pose - there's a pose for nate's hands, a pose for his legs, his posture, his face, and they mix up all the time, whether he's hiding behind a rock or gazing out over a gorgeous vista.

    i kind of agree that it's the only game thus far to feel really ahead of the rest. it looks phenomenal, the one-actor voice/mocap recording is something that should be taken up by all games for cinematics immediately, and the gameplay is rich enough to return to many times over. it's not only my favourite game of the generation, it's probably my favourite game ever. but don't trust me - buy the sucker, if you haven't already!
