Rob is in heaven...

he's gonna go dressed up as Lara Croft... i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

lol i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif . Lara Croft sucks though(atleast her games do). It'd be more like Solid Snake from Metal Gear or something. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

X-Box date and price revealed today. Nov 8th is the release date and it will retail for $299.

05-16-2001, 11:05 AM
Knowing me, I'll probably buy it (like the PS2), play with it a few weeks, and then forget about it.

05-16-2001, 11:09 AM
Yeah, don't know if I'll get it or not. Just watched the X-Box press conference and didn't see anything that impressive. Except Oddworld ofcorse. Gawd I want that game.

Nintendo press conference next i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

05-16-2001, 11:17 AM
I'm a bit weary of Nintendo and their stupid kiddie games. It's funny how they tried to revitalize the N64 somewhat by releasing that Conkers Bad Fur Day game. But in the end it's just another one of those Donkey Kong/Banjo Kazooey kiddie games..except it has a porno theme i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

05-16-2001, 11:20 AM
Yeah me too. Hopefully they'll have some suprises up there sleaves.

btw, Conkers Bad Fur Day is an awesome game i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

05-16-2001, 12:57 PM
porno theme, dj, that seems like it would be your type of game

05-16-2001, 02:25 PM

Press conferences:

Sony: They had the best IMO. Showed off alot of great games like Metal Gear Solid 2, NBA Street, Silent Hill 2, Madden 2002(which looked stunning), and a few others. Alot of boring talk though.

X-Box: Had the second best showing IMO. That doesn't mean it was good though. The games, while looked good, didn't blow me away like I thought it would. Nothing here that the PS2 can't do.

GameCube: Was impessed with there conference. Games look GREAT but(your not going to like this DJ) where ALL rather kiddie. They showed a couple Mario games and another game called Pikmen. Like I said, Look really good but...

05-16-2001, 11:14 PM
Rather then post a new reply everytime, I will just be updating(indicated by an * ) my "More new games" post above. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

05-17-2001, 04:42 PM
ARRGH i/expressions/face-icon-small-disgusted.gif . I quit. Can't keep up with all the goings on at E3. Only halfway through day 1 and I've only posted about half the stuff. If you wanna some info, go find it yourself at these sites.

Playstation 2 (http://ps2.ign.com/)
X-Box (http://xbox.ign.com/)
GameCube (http://cube.ign.com/)

And these 2 sites are good too.

Gaming-Age (http://www.gaming-age.com/cgi-bin/front/index.pl)
Videogames (http://gamespot.com/gamespot/filters/0,10850,6014070,00.html)

I will post some stuff but not unless I think it's really cool i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

05-17-2001, 04:44 PM
I saw the trailer for Duke Nukem Forever..looks pretty damn cool! Don't know if it's ever going to come out though, since it was supposed to be released for the pc about 2-3yrs ago!

05-17-2001, 04:47 PM
Did you notice the Age of Empires 2 thing I posted above? It's coimg to the PS2. Thought you might like that.

05-17-2001, 04:53 PM
Ya but games like that just don't play well on consoles. They're designed to be played using a mouse and keyboard after all. The PS2 version looks good graphically though. If it supports multiplayer/Internet play, then it'll do well.

05-17-2001, 09:25 PM
Ummm...ok. File this one under "Strange but true" . See for yourself.

i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif GameCube will launch for $199 on Nov. 5th. Looks like I'm gonna have to pick one of these babies up. It's so cheap.
