PS3. I only play/own Madden 09.  Want to get DC v. MK.
I ventured into the courtyard followed by 52 brothers bruised battered and scarred but hard.

DC V. MK is the BIDNEZZ, Son!!!  The Flash, Green Lantern and Captain Marvel will end you!!  ;D


And DAMMITT!!!  It's time for cross-platform networking....the Xbox and PS3 should be able to communicate across company lines...they're just PCs with network interfaces.  Maybe it's time to look into developing a server farm just for that purpose.

What do you think of Saints Row 2?

A way more out there version of gta4, but I can bring my homies to ride with me when I go do dirt.  The insurance fraud minigame is hilarious, Because I was a big time computer gamer, i prefer a lot of customization, hence the reason why i like it more than gta4
the game is messed up,  singers want to be gansters, gangsters want to be rappers, and rappers want to  be actors

See now there you go.....As you know I love football. ALL THINGS FOOTBALL.  I coach it, play it, watch it, think about it, read about it, dream about it.  I pretty much default to the NFL network when I'm channel surfing or watching the guide. So when the season is over I need to play a game and Madden is THE football video game this is UNIVERSAL FACT!  The only game I enjoyed as much football wise was the Arcade version of TECMO BOWL.  That game was off the chain 20 years ago!

Whoa... did Cage just go to the grail of football gaming??


I'm surprised no one has even mentioned Street Fighter 4 yet... 

I'm not sure what the commotion's about, but all the magazines seem to love it.

The SF franchise WAS arcade gaming back in the day and it moved more than a few Consoles in its time also. If this current version can't make a big splash I'd say that video game culture was on life support.

It's one of the very few "must buy" franchises left. Madden and Gran Turismo are the other two.

When I used to work in the wall street area I remember that the only time the suits ever showed up to the local games store was when the latest Madden dropped (and GT also to a lesser extent: the thing is high end tuner car porn).

This is the truth.  The SF franchise is what made arcades boom in the early 90s. When they put a SF II: Hyper Fighting Edition in the Student Union, it was chaos!  We used to bet on games and there would be HUGE crowd gathered around the cabinet.  The only reason I even bought a SNES was because it was the only console that had SFII when it first hit home and it's controller had six-buttons.  IMO, if I had to change anything on your list though, I would replace Gran Turismo with Halo.

anything that comes out from Blizzard has them packing into the store.   Resident evil is an event too.

I own the 360 right now. Currently I have:
1. Street Fighter 4*
2. Blue Dragon
3. Oblivion
4. Ninja Gaiden 2
5. Blitz the League 2
6. Crackdown
7. The Last Remnant
8. Burnout Paradise
9. Mass Effect

*Note the only game I paid the full $60 for the rest i paid less than $25 each  ;D

Jenn you ain't right ;D Seriously though, what don't you like about the Ps3? MM I'm a Ur fan!
1. they dont have alot of games
2. Blu-ray is overrated garbage of extra crap one doesnt need. Do i need to hear commentary or have additional content to satisfy my HD experience?

I don't dislike it. I just think it's pointless. Then again, I feel the same way about Madden NFL 2027.
I agree i just will never get the hype. It is annoying when they would ask me would I like to pre-order the game and it is february. LOL

Sony lost me as a consumer with their over priced system. Also someone told me the earlier versions of the PS3 wasn't backwards compatible. :o

I was on board for 1 and 2, but...meh, I'm going with Microsoft, and I'm still looking for a NEW Nintendo not used Jenn ;), although I did hear that the selection of games are not up to par.

Most of the WII games have been getting low gaming scores. So far I've played WII sports (I'm loving the tennis) and Bratz, with ma gurl Bunny Boo :)  I haven't really heard of any exclusives coming to the system. I don't know if it's really worth getting, with all the negatives I've been hearing.


There are no negatives. All of the negatives is based on nerds whining that there isnt enough mature games. When my grandma wants a wii for her birthday nintendo must be doing something right.

See now there you go.....As you know I love football. ALL THINGS FOOTBALL.  I coach it, play it, watch it, think about it, read about it, dream about it.  I pretty much default to the NFL network when I'm channel surfing or watching the guide.

I hope you arent one of those football geeks that look at the NFL combine lol. Im not too sure you would like the game but Blitz the League is awesome and it pokes fun at the NFL regarding steroids, getting bonuses for causing injuires and just about everything regarding the negatives of pro sports. Also if you have seen the tv show Playmakers the writer of the game also wrote the show.

what do you mean you dont understand the commotion? It is litterally a must have on the consoles. Of course if you were a person that play the Street Fighter franchise for 17 out of the 20 years in existance then yeah it is a must have. That is why you will always see something regarding street fighter. Dammit my username is based on a character. There is an entire community of people that play this game as if it is his/her job.

With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.

Thank God SF IV is coming out on Windows, which is what I use to run Fallout 3. PC gaming is the reason why I've never needed a PS3 or 360, although we should all bow our heads slightly in reverence when referring to the PlayStation 2. What I'm loving about SF IV is that it's being true to the game of old while bringing itself into the 21st century at the same time. If Vega actually climbs a fence, I'm going to have a fit.

BTW - whatever happened to Mortal Kombat? Or better yet, remember Killer Instinct? (Of course you don't.)

That made me all tingly in my naughty bits. Goddamn. I used to hate doing 40,000 flutter kicks and barely making any damage because the asshole was blocking them all.

Question: which was cheating more - using the Indian guy to blow fire all the time, or using Blanka to be electrical so nobody could touch you? And how come I can blow through MK: Deception in a matter of minutes, but Goro from MK:II is STILL beating my ass? Okay, now I'm firing up my SNES rom!

In terms to the console wars - and again, fully acknowledging the force that was PS2 (I owned a slender silver one and may get another one solely for Dance Dance Revolution), I still stan for Nintendo. I think it all boils down to which franchise you prefer, not your level of gaming - especially since most of the games are released on multiple platforms. Nintendo has the monopoly on Mario, Metroid AND Zelda, games I grew up on. And for all the 360/PS3 lovers who talk about how kiddiefied Nintendo is, I've never seen them last longer than five minutes on a game like Ocarina of Time without throwing their hands up in the air and talking about how "bored" they are - "bored" being gamerspeak for "I can't get past this level" or "what the f*ck is a Deku Stick?" Anybody who spent five months defeating "A Link to the Past" isn't about to be taken by the likes of "Grand Theft Auto" - likewise, anybody who plays fast paced games like GTA doesn't want anything to do with a game that may require 20 times to get to the ledge and burn the webs before the timer goes off and kicks to the beginning of the palace. I was playing "Super Mario Galaxy" last night, and it took me over 40 tries to beat one puzzle. And yet, that's what Nintendo fans call fun. I think we probably get laid the least. :)

Kicking it old school for a bit, this is incredible! Nintendo fans may remember Mario Paint - and if you don't, I feel sorry for you. That fly swatting game was the sh*t! And speaking of old school, I got my hands on a NES the other day, and I can't even hit the ducks anymore! Not even standing with the zapper to the screen! (Don't act like I was the only one who did this.) How the hell did we play these games back in the day - no walkthroughs, no save points, no internet...just old fashioned gaming. I kind of miss it.

That zapper actually worked more than 3 feet away from the screen?  DAaaang!


Killer Instict was too rich for my blood...
While you guys were putting quarters on the screen for SF, I was off in the corner playing the old "Punch-Out!" that had gotten relegated to the back of the arcade...
