I’m really in two minds about this and Natal… but then when the Wii was first announced and you could see the Wiimotes for the first time it just screamed fad!, but once you do a little bowling or tennis is all sort of made sense… It was so new it just seemed wrong, but with time became commonplace.
On one hand, it might be cool to have true motion tracking, and I’m sure there could be some good uses for it – throwing grenades/punches, light sabres, manipulating object on screen – that sort of thing. But on the other hand, it really does look like some freakish plastic ice-cream or over-sized roll-on deodorant, and I’m not sure I want to play Fight Night Round 5 flailing my arms and dripping with sweat…
So the Sony device has buttons while the Natal is button free – and I can definitely see positives and negatives for both systems – but as to which will be the best, and which if any, I’ll really want to use, I genuinely have no idea until I can give them both a shot. And that assumes that the price is right… What do you reckon?
Can’t wait to pick up a copy, though I’m undecided as to whether I want to get the GoW1 and GoW2 remastered-in-HD versions and play them first… I finished GoW a long while back but then moved to the AU (sans PS2) before finishing the second. Decisions, decisions…
[An hour or two later…]
I’ll take the original GoW first! – and it’s not even available for separate purchase in the AU atm… How, you might wonder, can I get on the GoW1 train? Because the lovely wife only went and got me the super-mega-ultimate-swishy set which includes God of War Collection, GoW3, postcards, a soundtrack two soundtracks, an art-book, unlockable thingys and all manner of Kratos related goodness!
The PS3 has finally been hacked. And it only took 3 years, 2 months, and 11 days…
Go-OO is a faster and better version of Open Office? ORLY? Could be worth a shot… Update: It turns out the version of OO that ships with Ubuntu actually includes the Go-OO patches, so if you’re on Ubuntu you’ve been using Go-OO all along. Ubuntu FTW!Obsolete: Use LibreOffice instead.
Nuclear fusion edges closer to the point where it can create more usable energy than it takes to sustain a reaction. Also, uses frickn’ laser beams of such power that they could boil 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools in a single second. Repect!
What the hell do all these ROM codes mean? Ninja Gaiden Trilogy (U) [T-Fre.67_Skaiboy][o1].smc, anyone? Know thine GoodCodes. (BTW: Original region: USA, Translation (deprecated) into French by Skaiboy, Translation version 0.67, Rom is Overdump #1 (so has more data than required to play the game, so the game could be 3.3MB, but the cartridge has had all 4MB of it dumped)).
Live longer through Calorie Restriction? Maybe.. This Times Online article by (2005 “Food And Drink Writer of the Year”) Giles Coren is a great read, and made me laugh out loud more than a few times :)
