    I will kick all of your fucking asses at this game. Too bad none of you will actually get it.

    I'll be getting it soon, and I know someone else on here who is getting it. Unfortunately, I was good at Tekken 4, but I never got 5 because I didn't have anyone to play with.

    Well, let's all play Tekken 5!

    Defender, I hope you enjoy the PS3. It's a pretty solid system.

    Actually it doesn't seem to be heating up very much.

    The system itself doesn't, but don't place any pristine ice sculptures behind it or anything, it pumps hot air out like crazy. Which is a good thing, hot air inside would be bad.

    Thanks! I am pretty sure that I will enjoy it a whole ton when Kojima is done with MGS4. That will probably hold me for a while. I am trying to be realistic in my expectations, like...I know it's not as awesome as the trailers make it look, I know all the novel gimmicky new moves and crazy camo tricks will lose their novelty in the first 45 minutes of gameplay (hopefully the first 45 minutes will contain less than 40 minutes of codec/cutscenes this time)...but even tempering it with realism, I have some fairly high hopes for this game.

    Tekken 5 should be cool to play online. I don't like the ultra-linear style of play...it feels too Japanese for me. That may be my real-life karate stuff coming through, where I prefer using mobility and angular adjustments over straight-line fighting, I don't know, but I really like how Tekken 4 and Soul Calibur use sideways motion as such a big deal. Anyway, right now my PS3 is curing cancer or something.

    You should get Virtua Fighter 5. It is not online like the 360 version (curse it), but it is probably the best fighting game I've ever played, and I've played pretty much all of them.

    Do you prefer VF5 over all the 2-d fighting games Ashcroft? I have always been a fan of Marvel vs Capcom 2 but i could not get into the 3-d fighters.

    Are any of you hooking your PS3s up to an audio receiver with HDMI? I tried doing this today and it works fine except that I no longer get 5.1 sound, my receiver picks stereo and won't let me change it. Can't figure out what the problem is. I'm pretty sure it will work with an optical cable but there's no reason that HDMI shouldn't work as well.

    I have been led to believe that Virtua Fighter has great depth of play, but I've played, I think, every one except 3, and I've always found them to be clunky. As a side note, I feel like the animation is incredibly jerky and unnatural-looking, but overall I just find it annoying and clunky. Because of this, I've never managed to get too deep into any of them, preferring old Street Fighter and new Tekken/Soul games. I seem to be unable to get to the point where the game feels smooth and where I don't find myself trying to do things that the game doesn't want me to do.

    EDIT: I'm REALLY suspicious of online play with fighting games. Fighting games as they currently exist rely on extremely precise timing, and with a ping of more than, like, 50, I can't see how the games would work. It seems that even a reasonable amount of lag or just a normal ping would be unacceptable in a game of that genre.

    Got Warhawk today at Gamestop. I hope that the bluetooth headset works well. Won't be able to play until Sunday, maybe.

    I got it, though playing it online I realize how crappy I am at the game.

    The game is setup into a room structure, where you can have 4-6 people per room. From there they do a king of the hill style rotation, where the people aren't play act as spectators to the match. I haven't played much and was basically steam rolled my only two matches I did so far but I haven't noticed any lag issues so far. Though once when I was a spectator for a match, there did seem to be some issues and the game would frequently pause during play.

    I kind of have mixed feelings on the system. I understand that they went for the arcade feel, but I kind of just want to play Tekken matches and not have to wait 10 minutes to get ass-raped by the room winner again.

    Not much into the kung-fu button mashers here. Maybe if they port Soul Calibur.

    Yes I have a full 7.1 speaker setup with the Onkyo 805 receiver.

    Make sure you go into the Sound options menu and tell it you are using HDMI and do an auto-detect (or set the options manually, like maybe disable the 7.1 options if you only have 5.1).

    Depends on what you are doing but you should get multichannel PCM (5.1 or 7.1) with games and the XMB (music, trailers) and either Dolby/DTS or M-PCM with movies, depending on how you have the BD/DVD audio option set (bitstream or PCM).

    PSN: Walk2k

    if you send me a friend request make sure you say you are from PA or something, I don't accept random friend requests.. my list is almost full. actually it is full, but I can probably trim some losers I haven't seen in awhile..

    the 50 person limit is a joke, though. I swear to god it should be the #1 priority for Sony to be fixing.

    Apparently some people are having problems with the Jabra headset that comes with the Warhawk in store game bundle, but mine seems to work fine.

    Warhawk is great if you like games like Unreal Tournament.

    Man, I want Warhawk. But, I can't afford to drop $40 or $60 on it at the moment, not with so much crap coming down the pipe very very soon.

    Mine locked up once in the first 10 minutes but hasn't since.

    Someone said don't have the media server thing turned on. I don't know if that helps but worth a shot.

    Anyone else seen the new pictures of the PSP Slim?

    I want one just for the better loading times and battery life. Think I'll hang on to my original 1.5 firmware PSP as well for a while longer yet though. For science.
