  1. This is one of my favorite games right now, very addictive. I passed everything on medium difficulty, and only have a couple of songs left on hard. I just passed Crossroads and Bark At The Moon on hard the other day, and I was very happy. I must have played Crossroads about 20 times before I finally passed it! Jim
  2. I don't see what the big deal is here. Others have already done the work creating menus that are comprehensive. What's wrong with him asking these people to share the work they've already done. It doesn't matter whether he can do it or not. If others have done something useful, they should share it, if they can. The last time I checked the internet, there are several communities that share the work they do. How many people use emulators that others have written? There are many other examples of this. Just my $.02. Jim
  3. My proudest moment had to be when I scored over 5 million on Asteroids (Arcade). I played for over 10 hours straight, and had over 200 ships when I stopped playing (they went across the whole top of the screen and disappeared at the other side). I only stopped playing because I got tired. My score was 9th in the U.S. at the time, and I had a large crowd watching throughout the whole game (different people over time). Jim
  4. The killer app as far as I'm concerned is DOA 4. If you like fighting games, I highly recommend it. The online play is great fun. Jim
  5. A man after my own heart. I am a Morgan Webb fan as well. Electric Playground is good for the girls also, Julie Stoffer and the other girl who always has her little b00bs out. You just have to realize that G4 is about teh secks, with a little of video game stuff thrown in. Jim
  6. I have a problem with any game that has a map, and you have to move around and find things or do things (a lot of games today are like this). I have a terrible sense of direction, and really struggle with that kind of stuff. I'm not saying the warriors is a complicated game, it's not. It is a beat em up, but it has that open free roaming kind of GTA feel. I never got into the GTA games, I suck at them too. You should have seen me just trying to get through one of the early levels where you need to spray paint stuff and steal car radios. It probably took me more than an hour to get through those levels! I usually just play fighting games, like DOA, Tekken, KOF, SF, etc. Jim These types of games? It's a beat em up! ala Double Dragon or Final Fight... It's not another GTA (although of course it has some elements of it) 953479[/snapback]
  7. I can't believe you guys dissin' the warriors. I loved the movie, I saw it when it first came out in 1979. I was very excited about the game. The only problem I have, is that I'm not very good at these type of games. I wind up wandering around in whatever level I'm in, and it takes me forever to get through any mission. I just suck at these games. The game is a lot of fun though. I recommend it whether you like the movie or not. Jim
  8. My first reaction to the controller was that it sucks, mostly in regard to how one would play conventional games with it (or next-gen games that would have a traditional control scheme). I think there are great possibilities for new types of gameplay, and I will probably buy it anyway (I have all 3 of the current gen), but I'm concerned about "old-style" type games that require standard controls. I think it would have been better if Nintendo offered this remote control as an add-on, with a standard design controller for the other games. This would be a win-win for everyone. Offer new games that would take advantage of the add-on contoller, and offer standard fare for the old controller. I'm a sucker for gimmicky specialized controllers. I know there was a picture of a standard controller attached to the remote control one, although I don't think it was official. If Nintendo is going to do things this way, let people know, and provide pictures. I think people would be more forgiving if they saw from the start that a standard type controller would also be available (it would be nice if it came with the system at no extra charge, but we all know how that works).

  10. Hi, I have some Japanese Taiko Games for PS2 available (you need to be able to play imports). They are all in perfect mint condition. I take Paypal for payment (both electronic transfers and credit cards), and will ship using USPS Priority mail. Shipping will probably be around $3 - $4 for each, and less if items are combined. My Ebay id is adonis_minus_20, and I am a reliable person to deal with buying or selling. I'll try to sell on message boards first, and then go to Ebay if need be. Here's what I have with prices listed without shipping (all firm): Taiko no Tatsujin - $42 Taiko no Tatsujin Doki! - $39 Taiko no Tatsujin Special Pack (2 games: Taiko no Tatsujin 3rd Generation & Taiko no Tatsujin: Animated Cartoon Festival in one box. Limited Edition comes with a set of cute Taiko stickers in perfect mint condition) - $69 Taiko no Tatsujin 4th Generation: Gathering Festival - $29 Taiko no Tatsujin 5 - $39 Taiko no Tatsujin Super Animehit - $35 Post or PM if interested. Thanks. Jim
  11. ***It's sold now, thanks.*** Hi all, I have a brand new Platinum Gamecube for sale that has been modded with the Qoob PRO chip. The chip was professionally installed, and flashed with the 1.3b version BIOS. It comes new in the box with all manuals, controller, standard A/V cable, USB cable for flashing the chip from the PC, and power supply. The website for the Qoob modchips is www.qoobchip.com. They have downloads available for the BIOS and a flashing tool that runs from the PC. The main purpose of the chip is to run homebrew software, imports, and GC-Linux (there's a list of a bunch of features on their website). The Gamecube new would go for $99. The Qoob PRO chip sells for $54. I'm asking for $175 shipped and it's yours. I'm already taking a loss on this at this price, so the price is firm. My Ebay id is the same as my id on this site: adonis_minus_20. I've been mostly a buyer, but I've sold a couple of things as well, and my feedback is excellent. I would sell this on Ebay, but they would probably pull the auction due to the modchip (although this chip and present BIOS does NOT support running backups). Payment for this could be done via Paypal or USPS Money order. I accept electronic transfers and Credit cards via Paypal. Thanks. Jim
  12. I've seen the term "recertified" used before, which is a new product sold to a customer who then returned it. There is nothing wrong with it, but it still can't be sold as "new". It's inspected, and if all of the original contents and packaging are present, and it's not defective or damaged, then it's labeled as "recertified". It's like an open box kind of thing. Jim
  13. I remember the threads where people posted links to their entire CC2 setup (romdb text file and roms and all) to copy directly to MMC. I tried looking for links and now I can't find them (although I did see the CC2 threads still). Does someone have the latest setup for the CC2 (all roms, homebrews, romdb text file, etc) and would be willing to make it available again? I know some people on the board had some good setups for this. It's your chance to show off! Thanks in advance. Jim
  14. I don't post much, but wanted to give my $.02 to this thread. First off, I have all three consoles of the current generation. I don't have any loyalty to any one company or game maker. I only look for and play games that are fun for me. I love the old Nintendo games, Super Mario games and such (mainly the NES and SNES ones), but the new stuff from them has kind of left me cold. When Mario and company transitioned into 3D, they kind of lost me (even with the N64). The main reason, I believe, that people like the Gamecube is for the Nintendo only games, Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc., because the support for the third party games is not so good. The problem for me, is that the exclusive Nintendo games are just not fun for me anymore (I wish they would just let Mario die and move on to something new and fresh). However, I don't look down on anyone that prefers the GC over the other consoles. Everyone should just play the games they like. Also, what I enjoy the most is to play games online. It is probably the biggest factor in deciding which system I will buy a game for. Nintendo has totally missed the boat with this, Sony has some support for it, and Microsoft has become a pioneer. I don't really care at all about HD support. So out of the three current consoles, I play my XBOX the most, PS2 second, and then the GC. I'm not into FPS or GTA style games, I mainly like fighting games and a few racing games. My favorite game is Dead Or Alive, and the only way I can play this online is via XBOX. I'm getting the XBOX 360, mainly because it will have the next DOA4 game, and will continue the strong focus on online gaming that is important to me. I will buy the other next gen consoles only if they have exclusives that I can't do without. This may be the first generation that I don't get a Nintendo console, but I'll have to see what games are available, and what online support they come up with. If they come up with something truly revolutionary (I'll even settle for something just a little different), I will buy it. If it is just another repackaging of the same Mario games that I already own, I will pass. Jim
  15. I forget the people here who complain about the PS2 controller and prefer the XBOX one (I happen to agree). Well I was looking on Lik-Sang for something else and stumbled across this: XBOX -> PS2 adapter It converts an XBOX controller to work on the PS2! I don't know if someone else already posted this, so forgive me, if that's the case. Enjoy, Jim Edit: The link was bad, try again.
