    so have any of you guys played Lair

    From everything I read, Lair is a complete bitch to control. The dragon is kind of slow to respond and gets confused easily when approaching narrow areas. I also read that you it has a lock on feature but you can't control which target it locks onto. A while ago they promised a demo on the PSN but the deadline for that demo pasted like a month ago so I doubt we'll ever see it on the store.

    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.

    Mine locked up twice last night, both times were just after a ranked game ended.

    I locked up once, I think it has something to do with an ungracefully disconnect from the server, not sure though. Actually, the first game I tried to play online, the game locked up on me but it hasn't happened to me since then.

    So, Haze is now PS3 exclusive. Well, exclusive in the sense that they said "we aren't making any ports for the 360 or PC" instead of "this is PS3 exclusive". So I guess it's exclusive for now.

    Also, developer walkthrough of a level: http://kotaku.com/gaming/clips/haze-developer-play+through-295593.php

    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.

    the better battery life is only if you get the kit that includes the old battery

    I have played Lair and anyone who can't use the motion controls shouldn't even be playing video games in the first place because they're probably the type of person who has to look at the controller to see where the buttons are. Lair is ridiculously easy to get in to and handles just fine.

    I had a friend who said he loved it.

    You could pull the dragon around beautifully and could do some great kills, like grabbing an enemy and just bashing them into a wall.

    Warhawk has yet to crash on me.

    My only problem with it is the fucking terrible lobby.

    Seriously? How can counterstrike have been out since like fucking 1998 with a perfectly funtioning lobby. If the game is full, it shows as full, if its not, you can join it. In Warhawk? Fuck no. It just doesnt refresh people in the game, just the ping. Assholes.

    So I tried out the Folklore demo today.

    Holy fucking shit.

    Day one purchase for me. Just the presentation and setting alone completely sold me on it, and I went into the demo having never even seen or heard about the game before.

    I made an entry for Game Republic's design a folk contest, so hopefully with a little luck I'll win a free copy of folklore and an artbook when it's released (maybe even get my folk in the game).


    Has anyone else played the Bladestorm demo off the JP store? I normally can't stand Dynasty Warriors but the demo is pretty fun and it seems to have a lot of RPG elements to it. Unlike DW you aren't a single man army, and instead you command various squads on the battlefield, and there is quite a variety of squads (Javelin and shield, sword and shield, single hand sword, two handed swords, bows, crossbows, mounted knights, on and on). You hit X to command a squad, and depending on your rank in the game you can commandeer more powerful units on the battlefield. By yourself the player character is somewhat weak and vulnerable, but with a squad you can charge into an enemy line and execute attacks in unison and send enemies flying.

    man

    warhawk is jsut so much fucking fun. I cant wait until all of the little wrinkles are ironed out, because damn. That game is fucking crazy.

    Get in a 32 player CTF or Zones game. And its so crazy. In the air you know you could get raped any second. On the Ground, same goes. Its so good.

    I don't think you can change it, though I'm half curious why you want to change one. Is there a conflict of addresses on your network?

    It's the college network.

    The college reccomends this:
    What must I do to play my XBox, PS2, etc. over the ResNet?
    In order for your game console to function over the ResNet, it must meet four requirements:

    A physical address, (also called a MAC address or hardware address,) which must be registered for DHCP access
    A web browser
    DHCP enabled
    Must accept cookies

    Uh, you should never be able to change your MAC address on any device. That's the unique identifier on the hardware itself, you're not supposed to change it.

    EDIT: So maybe you would like to register your console's MAC with university IT?

    It just sounds like you need to give your campus you're PS3 mac address. The easiest place to find it is on the back of the system there is a bar code with an alpha-numeric code on the back. That should be your mac address. You can also find in the OS under the network status option.

    Do you or do you not need an HDTV in order to use a PS3 without cutting wires and what not.

    The PS3 runs fine on a standard def TV with everything that comes in the box. To run in Hi-Def or in progressive scan you will need to buy either component or HDMI.

    Yes, the PS3 comes with plain ol' red yellow white composite cables just like a PS2 and will work just dandy on a SD TV. Won't look nearly as good but it will work fine.
