> People were trying to create something that they wanted to create and something people would find entertaining. There was no FPS. There was no RTS. There was no RPG.

True. There were overhead shooters, side-scrolling shooters, platformers, platform shooters, and strategy games. Don't fool yourself into thinking strict game genres are anything new.

That said, those old clichés were more fun than these new-fangled clichés! Get offa my lawn!

Why I hate the Xbox 360? Because all the good PC games go to the Xbox and become shitty.

38 Name: THRILLHO 2005-08-20 04:16 ID:GFWwCOaP


because it is just a pc in game console clothing yet again, if microsoft is going to make something like that why don't they just make gamming PCs that can function as a normal PC yet will play their exclusive games as well which other computers could not, but then again they would have to get exclusive games

I tend to get pretty hooked on Nethack and other Roguelikes at random points in time. The story of my @ whooping up on a room full of Z and pillaging all their %, ", and $ pulls me in more effectively than most of the games that sit up on my shelves. There's nothing but text and yet I get so involved that I almost can't believe it when my latest awesome monk bites it due to some horrible unforseen circumstance like having a magic missile from a wand bounce off the wall and back into him, or drinking his last unidentified potion in hopes that it will turn the tide of a hopeless battle only to find out it's poison, or something like that. It's like that line in Fight Club, only when we have nothing are we truly free to do anything, right?

But then again, I'm missing the point of this topic. The Xbox 360 is the son of a polar bear and a whore, and said whore had a really ugly-looking everything. If I were to actually own such a monstrosity, I'd make sure that the faceplace was a picture of a Dreamcast so I wouldn't have to explain why I owned an Xbox 360. ALSO IT'S TOO FUCKING BIG.

Oh noes Xbox 360 is st1ll teh hueg!!!!1!

Seriously, if you have room for a VCR you have room for an Xbox, much less the smaller 360.

42 Name: THRILLHO 2005-08-25 20:31 ID:5oLLbqaW

Yeah, but they tend to hang out in rooms full of the stuff. And anyway, a capital Z is a zombie of some sort, right?

43 Name: THRILLHO 2005-08-25 22:33 ID:weR6ivLU

oh, sorry, I think we're playing different games
Angband > Nethack

44 Name: THRILLHO 2005-08-26 10:29 ID:5oLLbqaW

I don't mind a little Angband now and then, but my Roguelike playing style tends to be better suited for playing fast and dying early, way early, by means of YASD.

Speaking of YASD, whatever happened to people complaining about how dumb the Xbox 360? All I had to contribute is that no matter what Microsoft does, every console they make will be known as too fucking big, even if it's like the size of my eyeball or something.

45 Name: Trillo 2005-08-30 22:47 ID:9yv6TUqa


I prefer Nethack myself.
Angband is too hack n'slashy while Nethack is much more focused on survival.

Xbox 360 doesn't seem as bad as its predecessor

What does the X in XBOX mean?
Does this mean the XBOX360 will be 360 times as large?

51 Name: THRILLHO 2005-09-25 15:24 ID:Heaven


It will be 360 degrees worth of largeness.

Xbox 360 does not care about black people.

Xbox 360 hates Asians too.

Xbox 360 is so huge it caused a small gravitational vortex that led to the creation of hurrican katrina and all subsequent storms that ruin stuff

61 Name: THRILLHO 2005-11-29 14:44 ID:ABGYit1h

I think what's killing the game experience in general is the insane amount of money it takes to produce the games. How can someone afford to take a risk on an experimental game when the production alone is several million dollars? It's frankly too much risk because if they make a failure of a game, they lose several million from production, plus a second couple of million in advertising.

And since all game companies are corprate first, they see those dollar signs. If they don't know as a fact that they will make back their money, the game dies.

thanks god there is japan

Thanks god japan does not like the LOL-Box

63 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-14 17:10 ID:u/3hydZS

well, i played one today, for the first time (the time i got bored waiting for the intro of kameo to finish, without sound, on a shop demo unit doesn't count). and, my god, was i underwhelmed. even the graphics were nothing special. i don't know which game it was, but it had nazis in it.

>>63're trying to say that Call of Duty doesn't look good? Call of Duty looks good even on a phone.

65 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-15 02:51 ID:XexGvw5b

The 360 is not large. It's significantly smaller than the Xbox. Probably not bigger than those eyesore PS3s.

Apparently they took out heat sinks to achieve this, because they are said to be prone to overheating.

66 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-15 19:59 ID:Heaven

Only a damn fool would enjoy the Xbox 360.

It just looked like an Xbox game. Maybe I'm just too jaded to tell the difference anymore. Meh.

I just saw Call of Duty running on a 360, and I thought it looked like every other WW2 FPS out there. If I yet another PC FPS, I'd be playing on my PC, now wouldn't I?

I also saw King Kong, which really was just a joke. Even Ubisoft is now telling people not to even bother buying it.

73 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-21 00:01 ID:Heaven

lol, xbox
lol, microsoft

74 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-21 00:04 ID:VWbUhaRC

I think King Kong shows the folly of this generation's push for HD and hardware design centered around pushing polygons and high res textures. Yes, the Kong and Dino models look great. Yes, they have incredebly detailed textures and Kong's hair moves realistically.

Then you see them move, and fight. The massive amount of clipping between creature models during close combat is hideous, all the more so when done with such detailed models. The canned attack animations are also all too obvious, as well as the "pivot around the z-axis with your feet sliding on the ground". It looks like it would play exactly the same on any previous console.

75 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-21 13:34 ID:Heaven


Also, on a normal TV it's too dark to actually see those wonderful models. Ubisoft says: Oops! Our bad!

The part I saw had Kong and some dinosaurs stomping around in water, and the splashing water looked circa-1999.

Since there are no actual post-christmas posts for him to be mocking, I guess >>76 is actually serious and didn't get his Xbox for christmas. It's sort of sad to see all his hopes and dreams crushed like that.

80 Name: THRILLHO 2006-01-11 00:57 ID:ncT9I60E

that's more like the folly of rushing first-gen software. i do think though, that if people were having trouble taking advantage of THIS generation of hardware (and they most certainly were; there are very, very few games that get the most out of ANY of the current consoles), that it's gonna be really tough to put together anything very impressive for the new stuff.
