    What about the Starcraft-Warcraft games874814...

    Have played both. I prefer Warcraft to Starcraft. WC is more...earthy I guess.

    Re: having to buy new consoles. I just gave up and decided to buy an X-box next week. I was trying to hold out, but there are just too many games (especially Halo(2)) that I enjoy not to justify buying one. At this point I'll own all the consoles that are out now and no I will not be wasting $$$ on upgrading to the latest $450 version _headshake:

    Okay, I really enjoy RPGs, certain shooters, etc, but I love a good strategy game. Has anyone played or heard of Worms World Party? It first came out on the now defunct Sega Dreamcast and had to be one of the most humourous and engaging multiplayer strategy games avaliable on a console. There is a PC version out (I think), but I was wondering if it was formatted and resold on the avaliable consoles.

    Re: having to buy new consoles. I just gave up...

    Say it isn't so! I'm still holding out, but when I was at EB Games Saturday, I was watching the E3 show's feature on the upcoming XBox 360. The graphics on that are AMAZING!! I might break down and cop one when they come out this winter. I simply MUST play the Jedi games BUT only if it'll play regular XBox games; there's still uncertainty if that'll be possible. Knowing Microsoft, I'm doubting it will. Microsoft wants ALL your money ! I won't purchase the PlayStation 3 due out next spring. Even though the games will be released as PS3, they'll still play on my PS2. That's why I LOVE that console. It's definitely more player-budget-friendly ^_^ .

    Re: having to buy new consoles. I just gave up...

    Okay I visited the official X-box site and this thing sounds amazing. I think it does laundry . If the cost is at or under $300 I may wait until after the holidays to purchase one. But at that point I could probably get a decent X-box for $70-$110 on e-bay I'm not sure if I'm ready to put up X-box 360 cash just yet. I'll probably end up waiting till I see what games they come up with. If something looks really good, I'll spring for it.

    As for the PS3, thanks Sony, but no thanks. It has a lot of cool features but there hasn't been enough of an improvement for me to pull out the wallet (At lest not yet _eek13: ).
    Does anyone own any hand-held consoles? I have an old school gameboy(christmas gift) and Gameboy SP(chrismas gift, pattern much lol?). I'm on the move a lot and these really appeal to me. I demoed the new one with the touch pad and the little task-based game I played was fun, but that seems like to would get very annoying w/ an RPG. Or at least very carpel tunnel-y

    1moremakes85 : you see his parents aren't doing their jobs. the cute scenes for that game is very gorey. and there are parts where there are women going around topless.

    are you sure PS3 games will play on your PS2 ? that dont sound like Sony. I'm sure its the other way around where your Ps2 games will play on your PS3

    Sunflowerbaby71 how old school is your game boy ? is it one of the original with the geen and black screen or is it one of the gameboy color or gameboy pocket ?

    Yeah, you're right. I mistyped that last night. They told me that PS3 will play PS2 games, not the other way around. That's why I'm not rushing to get the PS3 unless they come out with a TON of really cool games that I like.

    At the San Diego Comic Con's preview night last night, I played Destroy All Humans! and it was a blast! I'm going to get it for myself when the price drops. On the other hand, Fantastic 4 sucked - as I heard the movie does - and you can't even play with 4 people. WTF is up with that nonsense?

    Upcoming games:
    Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows was fantastic. Can't wait to get this Action-RPG when it comes out. And X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse.

    I finally got to play one of those PSP too. I finally ruled out getting one. While I love the idea of being able to play PS on the go, the type of games I favor aren't cut out for that little console. I need to SEE the environment, look around and plan my approaches.

    sounds great . i still havent finished x-men legends yet. i havent played a gauntlet game in years. the last won was either an eraly ps2 game or a DREAMCAST game. but those games are fun with people but i normaly play my games alone.

    Okay I visited the official X-box site and this thing...

    Man, I went to pick up Star Wars Episode III tonight at Best Buy and they had the XBox 360 up.....WOW! That ish is amazing! I wasn't even interested in the games they had up - King Kong and Call of Duty 2 - but they looked so SwathiF that I was hooked. I really enjoyed playing them. The 360 is going for $399 and $299 (the lower priced one doesn't have a hard drive, the ability to play original XBox games, and a whole host of other mess, so I don't know why they are even bothering .

    I don't game enough to cough up $400+ on a new console just because, well, IT LOOKS ABSO-FRICKING-LUTELY AMAZING! I have decided to pick up an original XBox when the price drops at the release of the new version. My buddies figure it'll be going for around $100 then. That's more my speed. ^_^

    Time to start making my list for when I go to North Cackalacky for the holidays. Nothing else to do but game, watch crap on cable and go Walmarting every day.

    ohmigosh, that's a beautiful console, sekh! dannnng! i wish i played more than the sims 2 and the occasional game of ms. pac man or the next tetris. my tastes hardly rationalize such hard core hardware.

    This is my problem. If I get it, it will be my last console. I swear! Yeah, right. Then they'll start coming out with TONS of all the kinds of games I like on PS3 .

    Any MMOG players out there? I'd love to play Star...

    My husband and I play MMORPGs (World of Warcraft and Diablo) and they are incredibly addictive. To date, since last December, I've played along the lines of 35 days (that's computed in 24 hours per day) on World of Warcraft. That's a lot of time I could have spent doing something else, but it's worth it. But if you have kids or a SO who doesn't play, it will cause problems.

    After much consideration (okay, so it didn't take all that much :P ), I decided last night to go on and get an Xbox 360. I was looking at upcoming titles on IGN.com and I want to play Prey and Dead Rising. So there are now 5 games I really want to play that are Xbox-only. I won't bother with the original Xbox since it won't play these lastest two I've added to my must-get list. Maybe I'll actually play Halo and Halo 2 one day.

    I will, however, force myself to wait until February. ^_^

    AerollegoJ - see, that's what I need: a gamer husband! I need someone in the house to play with, then I'd play more. All of my buddies are married guys. I don't know any chicks out here who game.

    ETA: I know people couldn't care less. I just need to talk myself into it, lol!

    Anybody know what the part that I bolded in red below means? I haven't a clue. Will that be a major inconvenience or detriment? Something that will make playing original games cost-prohibitive and getting a 360 NOT worth it?

    I was playing Star Wars Galaxies until they s.crewed it over. I'm canceling my subscription. They made Jedi a regular profession and now they only have 9 different professions instead of over 40 and you can't mix and match them anymore. rebeccamiddlebrook23s are shot and the game is filled with bugs. It moves so fast now it seems like they fast-forwarded it. A lot of people are canceling their subscriptions including veteran players that have been playing since launch (2003). Such a shame. _headshake: It used to be considered one of the best mmorpgs out their. They are even marketing it differently. They use to emphasize that playing Star Wars Galaxies was your own unique adventure. Now on the cover of the new game covers they have Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, princess Leia, and Han Solo.

    ^^Well THAT sucks! I wonder why they effed it all up? But, on the other hand, it's kind of good because I was being sorely tested by it. One less bullet to dodge.

    a software emulator is a program that allows system "A" to run programs that was mean to run on system "B"

    examples :
    playing GBA games on the PSP
    running Mac OS x on windows
    playing PS , Dreamcas , SNES, or other consoles games on a computer.

    The Xbox 360 needs software that zuma690cs the Xbox so it can run X Box games.

    I believe the PS2 used hardware emulation to play PS1 games. . thats y nealy all ps1 games could be played on the ps2 vs a list given out by miscrosoft on the "compatibility" on older games.

    Okay. So you're saying that THEY have to put a software emulator into the 360 and that it WON'T be anything that the consumers have to buy extra. Is that correct?

    finished 3 games recently

    Devil May Cry 3 : sPecial Edition - I punked out on the game and got through by playing on Easy . Now i'm working my thought the game on normal mode with the character i play in Easy Mode.

    Lord of the Rings: The Third Age - Really a subpar RPG that greatly benfitted from the Lord of the Rings title. IT Did give me some ner insight on what was going on during the movies. Ending was crap. I felt better finishing Super Mario Bros. than this.

    Metal Gear Solid 3: love , war , soldiers , spies , patriots , turncoats. What can i Say About this game except that Konami out did them selves on this one. Excellent Story. Even had me Misty eyed A LITTLE at the end.

    i have a few other RPGS to Finish . one i need to start. And KIngdom Hearts i coming at the end f the month.

    What games are you ladies playing, if any, other than The Sims 2.

    I play anything with Mario in it. I must also confess that I am TRAGICALLY addicted to neopets. My screenname is the same there as it is here, so if you are a Neopian holla.
