I finished my first season of my Superstar made a week or so ago with a total of 1,600 yards rushing, 19 rushing TD's, and 125 yards receiving. I made the Pro Bowl as a kick returner.

After the season you get a new apartment that's a lot cooler, but still with the same stuff as your old one. I fired my old agent, because a better agent was willing to sign me, and he has access to the performace institute. You are able to go to the Performance Institute once a week and it's basically like mini camp mode, but you only do the ground attack drill and only one time. Depending on how well you do you get attribute points. You get a bunch of endorsement deals and I was interviewed a lot over the offseason due to my great season and that my team won the Super Bowl. By answering the questions modestly I now have an ego of +11 and I have an influence rating of 56.

I started season 2 and my attributes have gone from 79 at the begining of last season to 86 currently. I was also named a team captain by my coach. You get a new HOF resume, and with the begining of the new season there is an added HOF board that you can access from your computer. There it lists the top 5 current players most worthy of HOF status as voted by the fans. If you crack the top 5 by the time you retire your Superstar is truly a Superstar.

So far I've played 4 weeks into the second season, and I already have 350 yards receving compared to 125 last year. It's real easy once you get the hang of it. I think I'm on my way to another Pro Bowl this year, and this year it'll be as an RB.

Somebody that likes comic books, i need help.

Next month, since i have court cost, i only want to buy 1 video game. Should i get Justice League Heroes or Marvel: Ultimate Alliance? Right now i'm leaning towards Marvel, but most of their characters are unplayable.

^^ Indeed.

Quote:
Wii will be sold as an affordable, mass-consumer product at an MSRP in the US of just $249.99. The price includes one wireless Wii Remote controller, one Nunchuk™ controller and the groundbreaking collection of five different Wii Sports games on one disc, which anyone can play using simple physical movements, experienced or not.

Every Wii console will include another distinctive feature: a series of on-screen “channels” that make up the Wii Channel Menu, which makes the console approachable and customizable for everyone, from the most avid gamer to people who have never played before. The Wii Channel Menu is the starting point for all of the console’s functions. The “channels” offer a gateway to a rich variety of entertainment options. When connected to a TV, the Wii Channel Menu offers a simple interface letting users pick games to play, get news or weather, upload and send photos or even create playable caricatures of themselves to use in actual games. The variety of options available through the Wii Channel Menu motivates both gamers and non-gamers to turn on Wii’s power every day.

I think you are always drafted in the third round, no matter what. That's pretty impressive though, a 97.

Hey I need an advice. Im a hardcore microsoft follower. Which next-gen console should I get? The 360, The PS3, or the WII?





Edit: I meant I do Love Microsoft, but Im having doubts on whether to get a 360 or a PS3. I want to have a solid investment for my money.

Yeah. But a lot has been saying that the PS3 kicks ass more than the 360. I'm thinking about making the right decision. I'm not betting against Microsoft, but I just want to get more value for my buck!

The 360 and the PS3 are on completely different levels......... pricewise. Then there's the argument that it'll take quite a while for the PS3 power to be harnessed to the point it'll really kick the 360's ass. All I know is I'm happy with the 360 at $399. won't the PS3 cost 599 for the premium version?

Well, I am officially pre-ordered for a PS3 at Gamestop. I'm guaranteed a PS3 from the first shipment from Sony. Good Times.

Of course, I'm not actually keeping it. I'm putting that puppy on ebay as soon as I get it.

I also plan on standing in the cold for one at Best Buy when they come out. Should turn a very nice profit on these things on ebay.

You should make some good money on that....... if they manage to get you one on launch day. If you remember the 360 launch, it doesn't mean much to be pre-ordered for a system these days......

Well, Gamestop has changed their policies. Each location was only taking 8 reservations or less. I'm #6 at my location. They are guranteeing a console from Sony's first shipment this time.

The ps3 will be Sony's downfall... so they say. All hail the 360!!!


Scarface is quite a nice game. Kind of GTA-esque but I guess it suffices the craving. Hella addictivo though!

True, but I still think it will do pretty well.

Nah probably not, but I don't think it will be a flop and I don't think that the 360 will do tons better than it. There are plenty of people who like Sony who will just buy it because they also get the Sony console.

Microsoft should get credit for what they deserve. I'm tired of hearing Gates' boys being second fiddle to Sony.

I'm not fan of Sony, but the 360 is called a second fiddle because it is. It's second in the U.S. market, and it's a distant third in the international market behind Nintendo.

If you're looking for someone to possibly make a run at Sony this time around, pay attention to the Wii. With such a low base cost, if the motion capture thing is a big hit, Nintendo could do very well with this release.

I'm going to be getting the Wii due to the price difference, and the fact that I always get the Nintendo system. I've never been unhappy with a Nintendo system, so they are the ones I continue to purchase.

Well, I might be getting a 360 and a Wii. I'll leave the Sony talks with my brothers. They're the Sony fans as they are Japanese. Way I see it, it's like having best of the three worlds while just paying for two of them. (Smirks an evil grin)

My predictions on the Next Gen systems success...
1. Wii
2. 360
3. PS3

There is zero chance the 360 has higher success than the PS3. Zero. And I'm not a Sony fan. I have no interest in having a PS3.

3. 360

I think there is some chance, but not much that the 360 does better than the PS3.

Is North America not the biggest market for consoles nowadays? The 360 ain't doing too shabby over here.

Oh really? I guess that's relieving to know. I'm so much used to looking at it through the Asian market's side. Since I am in Asia. The success of the consoles are measured by their performance in the Japanese market. Well I think that's just how I see it.

I've always been a big Microsoft fan and used to be for Nintendo too. I guess I just like the Microsoft Team better. I've never been fond of Sony, only until recently was I made into a spectator due to the fact that my step-brother-in-laws are Japanese. (and they really are influential ) It would really bother me to see the 360 lagging behind Nin and Sony if ever it happens. I'd rather see it this way again: 1. Sony/ 360 2. 360 or Nin 3. Nin or Sony (wishful thinking ).

It is the biggest market, by far.

But, the 360 has almost no footprint outside of the U.S., so it would have to absolutely dominate the PS3 here to have a chance overall.

Outside the U.S. meaning? Asian Market? -> clearly a PS3
European? -> 360 or Ps3?
