The Guy Game (http://ebworld.com/ebx/product/244785.asp)

I can't believe people will actually buy this.

I will most DEFINIATLEY not be buying that.

I'm saving up for Playboy the mansion

What a step up.

The Xbox hit all-time lows when DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball came out last year. The Guy Game is just another step into shameless garbage for the Xbox.

Yeah, I was kidding, Spire. I hate how so many companies think of the system as a "big boy" system, kinda like how many still consider the Gamecub a "kiddie" system(with Resident Evil, there is no such thing). This is just another ploy to think of gamers as people with no life, and can't get a girl. It sickens me.

I'll be honest I would like to play it just to see what it actually is but PAY 39.99 THAT'S Rediculous. By the way PS2 is better Socom and Madden Rule.

Yes, considering Rainbow 6 has Socom beat, but I do agree with Madden, though.


Hey, will anybody else laugh out of irony if the Guy Game sells over a million copies?

Ha! You don't know how wrong you are. You've never played Socom II online..(anyone everheard of the nick 'DongPiece' on Socom?..daaaas me.)

Anyhow, about this 'Guy's game' thing, there's really no need for this game. People will be masturbating on the Halo 2 instruction manual, and they'll lose stamina for another wank with the guy's game. Frodo's screen will be covered in jizzem when Halo 2 releases. He'll use it as an excuse while playing me 1 on 1. I'll understand.

Both are great. But I didn't think anyone else was an ESPN fan, I assumed most loved Madden.


BTW, how did you find out my plan, jacoby? You just need you own system, instead of mooching off others:P

CFC
07-09-2004, 12:59 AM
Both are good. But one is $30 less.

Only because Sega wouldn't sell as many if it was $50-madden still has it beat in sales, sorry to say:(

thanks.


I'll start it off- Fable blows, Burnout 3 rocks. discuss.

Have any of you played that Buffy game released awhile ago on Xbox? That and the PoTC voiced by Keira herself. Just wondering.

CFC

Fable is gonna be 2nd best RPG on Xbox. It will even things out since the guy game will pull xbox down.

Yeah, I knew PotC had her voice in it, but it still was GAY. I mean, I've heard stories about how the game made some Xbox's green light turn red :icon_surp

BTW, why is Keira's voice in the buffy game?

It's good and all, it just didn't promise a lot of things it said it would. Firstly, and mostly, IT'S 20 HOURS LONG!!! That's half of Star Wars: KotOR(which was a masterpiece-don't say crap about Zelda, as they are completly different). I do, however, liked the real-time action/combat.

Richard
07-09-2004, 01:09 AM

:icon_Oogl She wasn't. I was just asking if you played the game.

Oh no, Frodo double posted. :fencing:

frodo1511
07-09-2004, 01:10 AM
oh, my bad, I was confused. Nope, I haven't but heard it was rather decent.

Oops, richard thinks I've been a bad boy :icon_surp

Jacoby

Ban him. Poggs?

Anywho....MGS3, Zelda, Halo 2, Furble, and some others are the only things I'm looking forward to.

CFC

I wonder if they used Keira's voice for the King Arthur video game?

I assume you meant Fable, eh?

yes, all of those games are on my wishlist. Have you played Zelda: Four Swords? that game is BRILLIANT. I love it.



CFC: I really hope they use the actors' voices, seeing as they used their images/face scan (LOTR, anyone?) That game looks really good, seeing how:
1. It's not released at the same time as the movie, and
2. It actually LOOKS GOOD.

CFC
07-09-2004, 01:16 AM
I am looking foward to... Half Life 2, Counter Strike Source, Fable, MGS 3, GTA: San Andreas, GT 4, Zelda, Final Fantasy XII and Halo 2.

I am sure there is something else i forgot about.

The first 2 were alright, nothing super special.

I can't come back after that. Both were gems IMO, brought back life in the the genre that was, and still is, OWNED by MGS. I enjoyed the classic Clancy story, as well as the gorgeous graphics.

True dat...

ESPN NFL 2K5 is the best game since ESPN NBA 2K4. I can't believe people still buy Madden...

Oh yeah, and before you go blasting the mighty XBOX for no reason, you should probably see if the game is out for PS2 also...which it is.

It actually did have a rather decent trick system, but seeing as I've only played the demo version, I have no idea how it turned out in the final.

Two things:

1. The Xbox is also home to several exclusive hentai games in Japan.

2. I'm quoting an EGM Editor: "Fable can be completed in 8 hours, 12 if you do all the side-quests".

Socom II realism and gameplay are hard to beat. Once they start letting you download new maps it will surpass Madden as my fave video game. The single player mode is nothing special but by far the best online game in my opinion.

I'm so fucking pissed off at Peter Molyneux and Big Blue Box. I, and the whole world, were suckered into believing that Fable would be "the greatest RPG ever," but barely delivered on half of it's accounts. Sure, the graphics are nice, as well as the real-time combat, but 12 HOURS MAX?! That's just stupid, only a quarter of Star Wars: KotOR. I'm praying to god that B.C. dosen't suck, and here's why:

What, maby just for this year. No way will it contend to the likes of KotOR2: The Sith Lords, or Jade Empire, which is looking amazing.

Well I was talking about RPG's that have been released because so far Xbox is lacking in that department.

Yes, yes, true, I'm very dissapointed in Sudeki and Fable. But, that's where my Gamecube comes in, and Baten Kaitos will steal my soul.

CFC
07-09-2004, 10:35 PM
Tales of Symphonia is the only Gamecube RPG I have played but it was damn good.

Which means a lot from me because I strongly dislike cell shading.

frodo1511
07-09-2004, 10:40 PM
Shit, don't tell jacoby that, or he'll kill you, he loves Zelda Wind Waker:P

CFC
07-09-2004, 10:42 PM
Wind Waker is a disgrace to the Zelda series. I'm sorry but that game was the biggest let down for me.

frodo1511
07-09-2004, 10:44 PM
are you high? THAT GAME IS A MASTERPIECE, a worthy successor to OoT!!!

Oh well, I guess opinions can be wrong...

CFC
07-09-2004, 10:49 PM
Oot is like 1 trillion times better. Wind Waker does not have the replay value of Oot. I played it through but the game did not do anything for me.

Hopefully the next Zelda can redeem the game cube.

Jacoby
07-09-2004, 10:59 PM
Wind Waker was almost as good as Ocarina of Time. End of discussion. People just said it was bad because they're idiots and can't get over the fact that cell-shading looks better than more realistic graphics..

CFC
07-09-2004, 11:00 PM
A Link to the Past was better then Wind Waker.

Jacoby
07-09-2004, 11:02 PM

You just had a negative mind-set when you started playing Wind Waker. It's as good as OoT..seriously.

Goodie, another fan of Wind Waker fan. I hate that so many people diss on it, mainly because of it's graphics. Don't worry jacoby, Zelda: Reborn will make all a believer.

CFC
07-09-2004, 11:05 PM
The graphics sucked or atleast I think they did. But that was not what made me hate it. I don't put to much into graphics because I love games with bad grpahics like the first few final fantasies.

It just did not feel like a Zelda game and the gameplay felt different. The next one looks like it will be great from what I have seen so far.

frodo1511

END OF DISCUSSION OF WIND WAKER:
before a fight erupts, lets talk about another game. Anyone play Burnout 3?
It's great, riveling F-zero for a sense of speed.

When does Reborn release? I'll have to re-buy a Gamecube...for the 5th time. I've had every freaking color already.

It just did not feel like a Zelda game and the gameplay felt different. The next one looks like it will be great from what I have seen so far.

It was the same exact gameplay as the other Zelda games. The only thing different was that it was mostly water, which I loved about it, and you don't turn into an adult. I'd rather play as younger link..it's more like the original ones. *shrugs*

Edit: I'll never stop talking about Zelder

Quick question: Fable doesn't come out until September 14, so how have you already played it? Aside from playing it in a video game store of course, but even then you can't accurately judge a game from playing it a whole 10 minutes.

Oh, and I agree with Sudeki being a big dissapointment.

I believe he is referring to the reviews he has seen. I have seen stuff giving it positive and negative comments. Biggest thing people don't like the the length of it I guess.

Frodo, do you know if there is a way to hook a mouse and keyboard up to the xbox? Or do they make one that actually plugs in?

frodo1511
09-09-2004, 08:57 PM
Not at the moment, no. I've never heard of anybody hooking a mouse/keyboard combo to their Xbox, seeing as there is no way to calibrate keys to buttons, no kind of plug that exist's for a mouse/keyboard, and no adaptor that I've seen. But look around, maby someone has one, but it's a long shot. Good luck

Holy shit, anyone interested in Need for Speed, check this:

It appears that Burnout 3 has a secret, semi-hidden short playable demo of Underground 2, for the 2 people that care(yeah! you two in the back!!!) I don't know if I'll play it/get the game, considering that Underground was WAY TOO REPETITIVE, at least when it came to track design. EA is promising a totally free-roaming environment, but I think I'll take Burnout 3 personally.
