  1. Wow!!!! I didn't know him well either; however, I know he was held in very high regard by many of you and on these boards. My thoughts & prayers go out to his family.
  2. Yeah I'm really impressed with the Red color. I normally don't dig Red but they did an excellent job with this. I went to Radio Shack and found a 4 gig memory card on sale for $34.99 (Best Buy was charging $39 for a 2 gig card.) I got the exact same case that you mentioned. That thing is nice & I was also impressed by the flip down shield. It feels like a solid quality build unlike a lot of cheap cases that I have purchased for various things in the past.
  3. I picked up my Red PSP & travel case as well tody. This is my first foray into the PSP world. The system looks really nice. I laugh at how loosely the limited edition term gets thrown around. I have a feeling we are going to see all kinds of this system for a long period of time. Sony will milk this one.
  4. I'm really impressed with the PS2 numbers. That thing is still selling like hot cakes. I'm glad that Sony is continuing to support the PS2. Microsoft has given up on the Xbox.
  5. I have to admit that I am pretty excited with all of the news that I'm hearing about the Wii recently. Something tells me that Nintendo may win the console battle this time around; however, developer support and quality games will be the key. I think the Gamecube was a nice machine but the support seemed to be limited. While the Xbox and PS2 had 10-15 games dropping each month the Gamecube had 1-3 games. Things should be interesting this time around.
  6. I will not be picking up any new games in January. I will use the month to try and complete a couple of games.
  7. They appear to be associated with Hollywood Video as they are located within some many of the Hollywood Video stores. Their service is pretty much the same with any other video game store. Nothing really special; however, they do have a good sale going on until January 7th. A lot of newly release games are selling for $29.99 right now.
  8. Thanks for the link. I found this game (brand new) at Game Crazy for $19.99 I would have never thought about picking up this game had it not been for this thread. I have numerous games that have never been opened and little time to play due to work and family. My kids had a complete blast playing this game. I even jumped in and took the controller away from the. The gameplay is very innovative. This one slipped through the cracks; however, I am happy with my purchase at 19.99. What a steal.
  9. I gotta pull the Dreamcast out of the box and play it for old time sake. I loved that system and it was too far ahead of its time.
  10. I completely agree with you!!!! There are thousands of people around the world that simply sit around hacking day & night. It's only a matter of time.
  11. Hello, I am seeking some help from the LCVG gaming community. I am participating in a school debate regarding voilence in video games. One team is taking the position that violent games are having an effect on kids and Congress should intervine. The other team (my team) is taking the position that the government should not get involved in the gaming industry. I wanted to get some opinions and feedback from members of this board regarding the hot topic of video game violence. Do you think that violent games affect our youth? Do you think that Congress should pass an age limit on selling games to minors? It does not matter which position you take. Just a brief explanation of your position on this topic. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated or any links to articles regarding this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
  12. I'm usually ok with all the aesthetics of all consoles once they are released. Lately I have really gotten hooked on the "Limited Edition" consoles. I wish these companies would show the US some love when it comes to limited edition consoles. Microsoft had great success when they released the Green Halo Xbox as it sold out very fast. I have a crystal xbox that I imported from Canada and it looks really good. I also imported the Midnight Blue gameboy Advance. I have also seen some of the Aqua, Silver, White and Midnight Blue PS2 consoles that look really nice, however, these things only get released overseas. I would like to have a couple of color choices when it comes to consoles. I saw some photos of Nintendo's new system and there were some additional colors that looked really nice. I bet we will get stuck with black here in the states.
  13. I'm kind of puzzled by this move too. I understand that Nintendo will make plenty of money on this new system. However, like Chatakinns mentioned in his post, I have a (2)GBA's, (2)GBASP's, and a DS and they are all working fine. I wish Nintendo would focus on releasing some quality games for the DS because mine is starting to collect dust. I can easily say that I will pass on this system, but I would probably be lying. I have such a weak spot when it comes to buying anything that involves video games. Luckily I have a good job because my wife thinks that I am already "crazy" when it comes to video games. I even bought a slim PS2 and a crystal xbox for a backup. Come on Nintendo, give us more quality games for the Nintendo DS.
  14. For some reason the Collectors Edition has been really hard to come by in my area. Maybe this is true "Limited Collectors Edition". Not like the ones that many companies make and produce millions and millions of copies and they are all over store shelves. Anyway, I do have the collectors edition of this game and it is ok to say the least. There are a couple of good parts that talk about the history of the game and show actual footage of the game being made. There are also trailers that are extended and never shown on regular TV. The Developer diaries are pretty good and they interview the lead guys who made the game. It discusses the AI, sound, animation and level design and how this was implemented into game play. The soundtrack and art gallery seem useless in my opinion. The collectors edition is ok and is nice to have if you are a fanatic of the series, however, I don't think you are missing out on too much not having it.
  15. I am a fan of pretty much all video game consoles and handheld systems. I have all systems like most people on this board, however, I have yet to purchase a PSP but that will change soon. I know the DS has sold well but I think Nintendo does have some serious competition in the handheld market. Like many others have stated the lack of any quality titles for the DS has me really upset. Besides playing Super Mario DS the system is not getting that much playing time. I think Nintendo dropped the ball "big time" on the games. The sales numbers for the DS are impressive and I think they would be even higher if Nintendo had released two or three killer titles at launch time. I am not giving up on the DS yet but the PSP has me really excited and I will be picking one up next week. As someone mentioned in a previous post this is not a topic of trashing the DS. I am just really disappointed and let down by the lack of titles. Hopefully this will change. Just my thoughts on the subject. Thanks
