^thanks for the Zelda info!

Okami looks and sounds amazing

Was there not some problem regarding the blu-ray technology sony were using in the PS3 that was meant to delay its release?

That bit of info is like heaven sent mana...that will be brilliant to have the whole nintendo consoles back catalogues and the Genesis'........

Well the whole deal with the Blu-Ray delay was because Sony still needed more time to finalize the "copyright-protection technology" and since that's a huge part of the PS3 selling point, they decided to push it back a bit. It will be released in (hopefully) November of this year.

And yes Okami looks amazing, and it's getting some great reviews by Famitsu (39/40) and others. That is set to hit shelves on September of this year. Long way off.

I have it.

I bought it the first day it was released and installed. When i installed it i could'nt get it to work it kept crashing to the desktop. I looked on the Movies forum and there was other people having the same problem.

Fot the first few weeks, the only way to play this game was disabling my sound card or turning down the volume in the games settings.

The patch has been released, and there might be several updates now, i'm not sure, i haven't played it in months.

You're very limited to what you can do in the game and it gets very repetative.

Its much like the Sims games. In order to progress through the story mode you have to keep your stars happy. But before you keep your stars happy, you have to do this, before you do that you have to do another thing it gets really fustrating. After you use the actors over and over agian, is like real life - the audience gets tired of them - and you have to re-hire younger actors and go through the cycle again.

Doesn't it just. And apparently the Nintendo DS has been consistently outselling the Sony PSP in Japan. Could this be the start of a great revival for Nintendo?

Thanks for the info Wayne. I enjoyed The Sims games but I know what you mean about the repetitiveness of it all.

The DS outselling the PSP was probably always going to happen, Nintendo has always been top of the handheld market in Japan...Nintendo's revival really depends on the Revolution which is sounding more and more a great console

Nintendo

<always has been on the Nintendo bandwagon

My brother recently got Medal of Honor European Assault. We had rented it before and I really liked it. The multiplayer levels are great, some really big ones with great hiding spots.

After a year long break from GTA: San Andreas, I beat it yesterday. What a life-fulfilling experience! Apparently I have a lot more to do though.

Besides that, I'm waiting until the end of finals + a big paycheck to nab Kingdom Hearts II. My friend is completely addicted to it. I can't rememeber if I finished the first one, I think I did.

I also *love* The Sims 2 but I can't keep up with all the expansion packs!
The Sims: University is a little bit too close to real life for me to enjoy completely.

A Nintendo "revival" is definitely on the up and up from what we have been seeing in Japan and the States. As far as Nintendo reaching #1 once again worldwide... I highly doubt it. Sony has such a lock on consoles at the moment that unless the PS3's price range totally discourages consumers from buying it, they will sell like hotcakes. If only for the PlayStation brand name.

Yes the DS has sold incredibly well in Japan. The most recent update of Media Create Hardware Sales shows:

1 DS Lite: 140,969 (827,737, 827,737)
2 DS: 37,204 (767,772, 6,414,722)
3 PS2: 27,549 (504,215, 19,208,840)
4 PSP: 26,340 (609,398, 3,292,355)
5 GBASP: 6,372 (100,814, 5,793,250)
6 GBM: 3676 (62,678, 477,766)
7 Xbox 360: 1,926 (37,287, 107,855)
8 GC: 1,080 (43,649, 4,137,238)
9 GBA: 46 (2,397, 8,822,044)
10 Xbox: 30 (1,355, 47,5200)

This shows a slight increase in Xbox360 sales which usually trail behind the Gamecube a bit. It also shows that combining both models of the DS bring this weeks total to almost 200K units sold. About 7 times as much as the next on the list, the PS2 (wow@PS2 still selling boatloads)

For Software the DS is also king of Japan:

1 Train Your Brain 2 (Nintendo, DS): 70,984 (1,886,802)
2 Train Your Brain (Nintendo, DS): 51,931 (1,929,506)
3 Animal Crossing: Wild World (Nintendo, DS): 49,168 (2,462,062)
4 Legend of Starfy 4(Nintendo, DS): 47,971
5 Guilty Gear XX Slash (Sega, PS2): 43,601
6 DS English Training (Nintendo, DS): 43,365 (846,714)
7 Pokemon Ranger (Nintendo, DS): 38,030 (359,001)
8 FFXII (Square Enix, PS2): 24,694 (2,150,671)
9 Pro Yakyu [Baseball] Sta 2006 (Bandai Namco): 20,959 (72,986)
10 Pro Yakyu Spirit 3 (Konami, PS2): 20,604 (89,142)

That's 6 of the top 10 software sales for this past week going to the DS, the rest for the PS2. OMGWTFLOLBBQ Nintendo iz d00m3d!

More news to come as I find it.

I've just been playing some old demo disks from 2003:

Anachronox. It's an RPG that I really enjoyed playing. The battle system I don't think much to but I really love the explore mode.

Blitzkrieg. It's a WW2 RTS. I'm enjoying it even if sometimes it's really hard to keep track of what's happening in the middle of a battle...

Anno 1503. Another RTS! In this one you build a settlement and trade with others etc. I sorta felt with this one that I could just build more and more houses and the population just seemed to grow. I felt like nothing I was doing (building more farms, market places etc) was actually having any effect on the game. Tropico (which wasn't exactly the same, this time you're a dictator on a small Caribbean island in the middle of the Cold War) was so much better if incredibly difficult!

Anyone got any thoughts on the above games?

Yep.

^ Square Enix seem determined to cash in every way possible on Final Fantasy VII ever since they 'broke the rules' by creating a sequel to Final Fanatsy X. I can't help but feel this is going to be bad for the final fantasy series. I loved FFVII but I think FF games should stay as one offs, not be given sequels...

I've played Anno...I had some trouble with it suprisingly, no matter what I seemed to do, the settlement would never grow

Blitzkrieg i've played on a demo disc too...I think Anachronox was on it too

I think we have the same demo discs
