I pout the IPW logo, the IPW ring, Myron Novaar, and the Reaper's finish up for download. Tried to put the Reaper up but its saying he includes downloaded content. I don't think he does, but I had this problem last year with Joxide.

Novaar doesn't have his entrance - I just put him on there to make sure there wasn't a bug with all my CAWs.

It was one downloaded move from the old school Edge. Reaper is now up for download.

I was considering it at one point, but I prefer Sony's product. At least this way I'll get more time out of the game, so my money has gone further Razz

That's one way to look at it I suppose.

360 is not just better for a myriad of reasons, some pertaining to this game, others not....

But for pricing reasons as well.

Personally speaking, that is. (As I'll explain down further)

Even aside from the fact that the THQ WWE games on PS3 are officially said to be simply rushed ports from the 360 version for which the series was developed for, there's also things like the Caw layer limitations on the PS3 which the 360 version doesn't have, and the 360 having bolder and better colors, these are games that are admittedly glitchy even on the system it was natively developed for, so I can't imagine how buggier the PS3 is.

And of course, personally, my main being that the PS3 is obscenely overpriced for what it is, and what it has over the 360 which is generally nothing, really.

For instance, when my 360 broke down (after 6 years actually which is a pretty good life span all things considered), I briefly thought about switching to a PS3 for the hell of it. Even with it's issues, I almost gave it a chance soley for it being something "new" I've never had.


And then I noticed that used 360's were $109, while used PS3's were still well over $255 in the store I was at.

It made up my mind for me and re-affirmed what I already knew. Stick with ol' reliable.

Granted the major reason I even have a new system (I am and always have been more of a retrogamer) is mostly TO play the WWE games of which I am a fan of, so that's another reason why.

There's no way in hell I'm gonna buy a PS3 as overpriced as it is, just to take a hit in creation layers ,extra bugs, and graphics for my favorite currently running game series.



On the other hand, though.... I realize for fans of Final Fantasy games, it's the opposite. They're primarily into games where they don't want to have to buy a multiple disc game, when they can buy FF 13 or 14 on one disc for PS3, and they prefer that for their preferred game, which is fair enough.

....except fuck Final Fantasy anyway. Razz *troll smile* Square-Enix hasn't made a good game since the turn of the century. Razz *prepares to be hated for saying that... even though I can't imagine anyone would defend FFX onwards.*

Well, as I've said before, I have both the PS3 and the 360. I've always preferred the 360 as a games machine. I just much prefer the front end layout and approach, I prefer the controller, and I like having the option of whether or not I install the games to the hard drive. While having a BR disc to put a game on does mean less discs per game, its not really much of an issue in my mind to swap a disc on occasion, and it hasn't stopped stunning games like LA Noire, Forza 4, and Skyrim coming to the 360.

The PS3 does have its advantages. Up until recently its been better as a multi-media entertainment machine than the 360, mainly due to the inclusion of a Blu-ray player and the fact that BBC iPlayer and other on demand TV and movie services like Love Film were on it but not on the 360.

However, with the new XBox dashboard and front end, BBC iPlayer, Love Film, Youtube, and various other on demand services are rolling out to the console, which all help to close the gap. Physical media like Blu-ray is starting to lose ground to on demand, so the BR element is less of an issue these days when you can just search and download whatever movie you want. I buy as many movies from iTunes these days as I do on disc.

Plus, Kinnect, though gimmicky for games still, does open up other opportunities for interactivity with the console which the PS move doesn't have.

I'm not saying the PS3 is a bad machine, but I do prefer the 360. Luckily, I won my PS3, so I don't have to bother about the cost. I just keep it around as a spare BR player. But as there's a rumour that the 360 replacement will be shown next year, we'll keep an eye out on what happens.

(Regarding Shane's reply about FF)...

Yeah. Thanks. Actually, I was starting to regret saying this, as though I still think it's true but it seems to be something that really gets me in trouble saying a bad word about this series.

You wouldn't believe the argument I got into with someone for saying this. Well, it was with someone who went by the disgustingly fanboyish online moniker of "IHeartYuna", so it was to be expected....

... but basically last year, I severely got into it on a big pubic forum with someone who told me I needed to "grow up" and "didn't understand reality" because I dared to say that a game series fell from grace a long time ago, and even though I listed a bevy of good reasons why, he just threw mainstream review scores in my face and told me I was a loser that didn't matter because I'm not a goddamn magazine or IGN, or something.

I proceeded to shred him through the fucking logic grinder with a 4 page essay on why Final Fantasy's been crap since the Playstation 2, and basically told him to go fuck himself if his entire reason for personally insulting me is just because I don't like the game he's obsessed with to the point of having a username about being in love with a fictional character. (Who is actually, in the game, a weak-willed, milk-sop of a bland, massively underdeveloped co-dependent chick who can't seem to make a logical choice for herself to save her life.)

I gave up on this game series years ago, when they just turned it into a linear cutscene-fests featuring stupidly banal characters trodging down hallways and straight on-rails paths in ludicrous, nonsensical, enormously padded stories, and overly complex, annoying leveling systems that don't reward anyone logically for managing the annoyance it takes to manage it.

Looking back, I don't think I had tore into someone that badly in the last 5 years. It's only soured my feelings, since, and I scoff at every FF game that gets announced, now. Razz I remember when it was great. Most people today don't, so I'm hated, for comparing bad games with the same name to good games that shared the same name back in the mid 90's, even though I've played and beaten games in both generations and I'm sure qualified to know what i'm talking about. Razz

As much as I don't really want a repeat of that or anything.... seriously. I stand by a lot of things. And me thinking FF sucks now, is definitely one of them. The Playstation 2 was when it really started the downward spiral, personally.

As much as I still feel annoyed by almost everything that Tetsuya Normura has done to the series, where it's fanbase is now primarily dominated by 14-year old Yoai fanfic writers, instead of being a series about open-ended, epic tales of adventure and real exploration and intrigue back with it wasn't bogged down with unnecessary convolutions and vapid bizarre situations and characters that I can't identify with nor understand anymore....

....What I really am tired with is how impossibly dry the Final Fantasy well has been milked. It's a dead series that won't be allowed to die in peace, between the constant remakes and critically panned miserably bad MMOPRG's today.

That's all I'll really say about it though. I used to like these games. I really, really do not, anymore.

That's probably really harsh, but oh well. :/

So, just to clarify, you ARENT a fan of the more recent FF games then?

Never even played one. I don't play a lot of RPGs. Enjoyed Dragon Age II and I should be getting Skyrim, but that's about it.

I quite enjoyed XIII. In fact I really enjoyed it. However the main problem with it was thatreally, FFXIII wasn't an RPG at all. It was far too linear to be an RPG. Don't get me wrong though, it kept me very entertained over the summer. I liked the story, I like the faster-paced fights, and I generally could pick it up and play it whenever I wanted and get straight into it.

I've not played XI or XII (though I do own the latter), so can't comment. However X was a massive let down, I didn't enjoy it that much, and the fact they even made a sequel, which was even worse, baffled me completely.

The last FF game that I really enjoyed playing was FF Tactics on the PS1. FFVIII was OK, but I got bored before getting anywhere near the end of it. FFVII and FF Tactics are my favourites of the series. I haven't played an FF game since FFIX, and that was dull. Wow, that's a lot of abbreviation!

So... uh...

I just wrote a HUGE post that explores my feelings in depth for every single entry in the numbered series up to FFX-2.

And then when I read it back to myself (it's very long), man .....I get really vicious on some of these games, and really, really negative too. :/

I decided it might not be in my best interest to actually post what I wrote, unless you really wanna see me trash some games in the series the way I was about to.

I just have a feeling it might piss people off more than anything. Even the guys here, who I know and respect. I saved the post, but maybe I should just leave it at that. I mean, reading it back, if my opinions didn't spark an argument before, I have a feeling it would if you saw it. Razz

It's just that I'm really vocal when it comes to these games, as it's about a long period of my life playing them. I probably shouldn't post it. ....ehe.

Why don't you do a playthrough thing for each FF game like you did with Jurassic Park and Ren and Stimpy (I think that was you...)? Razz

I will say this, though about what I wrote.

It wasn't all hate.

The general consensus I had was that I honestly think there are only really 2 entries in the entire FF history that I actually believe deserve the "Masterpiece" classification that most people generally toss on the entire series as a whole. FF4 and FF6. FF6 being the absolute high point for the entire franchise.

And besides that there is a very small smattering of games I feel are still yet "good." Not great but certainly good. FF7, FF9, and in theory, FF1 for it's time, even though it's aged horribly.

However, others, to me range from being "very lackluster" to being "downright soul-crushing abominations of garbage" I won't go into detail, but i'll let ya'll theorize, instead of posting my admittedly harsh diatribe as I had written it.

Still, there's at least a sizable half of the entire franchise (strictly in terms of actual numbered main titles) that I really think are not good, and as a whole the franchise is severely overrated, when I really think to myself about how only 50% of the game's main titles, or less, would get a positive review from me.

Post the full thing in the review section. Then if people want to read it they can, without clogging up this string/forum.

I like my PS3. I find it to be user friendly, doesn't go tits up very often, always preferred the PS controller, and it plays Blu Ray DVD's.

I think we discussed it briefly last year, but they've released some Back To The Future downloadable games on the PS3 I'm going to check out once I'm done with WWE '12 and AC: Revelations. I know you're a big BTTF fan Dave so they might be worth checking out. I think the first episode is free to play on the Playstation Network.

I've only played Final Fantasy 7, 8 and 9, and that's the order I rank them in. 7 blew my mind as a kid and I still love it to this day, it's my favourite game of all time and I play it once sometimes twice a year. 8 was really good too, specially the card game and the ability to morph items. Good engrossing story too. 9 was pretty cack. To me it was the epitome of a generic swords & sorcery RPG. Story was pretty boring, didn't like character classes and I only played it through to the end because I paid £8 for it off the PSN. I couldn't assed with the side quests and optional bits. Oh, I've also played about 2 hours of FF12 on PS2, and that was pretty boring too.

I'm going to give FF10 a crack at some point, I've heard that's a really good game. Also heard 6 was meant to be good so I might give it a try at some point.

P.S: Yes, I realize that my criticisms just sound really bitchy. Like, I said, I am kind of worried that my opinion of them is going to make someone mad. It's definitely happened before. And I realize it's going to probably sound really abrasive and unfair the way I put it. It's just that thinking about them all over again, still kind of irritates me, even all these years later.

I have to agree with you on the most part. I enjoyed 7's story though, but it has been a fair few years since I last played the game. 8 was terrible, as way 9. At that point, I stopped buying the FF games so I don't know about any since 9.

I like more technology in my games which is probably why I liked 7 & 8 and not 9 or 12. Dunno why everyone bashes 8's story though. Tbh I thought it was really engrossing and I got really into it. It got a bit strange towards the end but hey I can live with that. The first two-and-a-half discs were quality, although I got to admit the characters were pretty lame and the romance between Squall and Rhinoa was shitty, but everything else about the game was spot on. 7 I thought had a superb story, good characters, a good villain and I liked the blocky character animations. IMO it's fully deserving of it's hype.

Dave, did you see the BTTF game bit in my last post? Thought that might be of interest to you

I did indeed. Think they might be the same games as they also released for the PC and iPad as downloads. I got the first one, and it was OK, but it didn't really inpire me to go on and buy the rest, TBH, despite being a huge mark for the movies.

Don't worry about it. Freedom of speech is what these forums are about (that, and WWE/video games). Say what you like, when you like, and you'll never be judged on it.

Hm, I think the first episode is avilable for free on PSN. I'll give it a shot, I'm a big fan of the series too so it would be silly not to.

Even so, I'm unhappy with my own rant. I think a lot of it was me purely being a spiteful asshole, and I have regrets.
