I just ordered an Xbox 360 and was wondering if anyone here had a live account? It would be nice to play with some other trans people. I don't have an account just yet, I'm still waiting on it to get here. Damn UPS!!!!!!
I discovered something recently. A game that I love dearly is a sequel, and the prequel is a computer game (the psx version, I guess, is only available in Japan). Well, that game is Skullmonkeys, and it's prequel is The Neverhood. Does anyone have a copy they're willing to part with, or would be willing to burn onto a disc? I unfortunately can't pay for it.
So the time has come for another update. For those of you who aren't dead, here are some games to look out for:
Bully for Playstation 2: (In stores now.) Play as Jimmy Hopkins, a young malcontent attempting to find his way at his new school, Bullworth Academy. The decision is yours: Will you help the bullies, preps, jocks, nerds, or solely yourself? Will you focus on getting girls, skipping school and avoiding the prefects, or causing schoolwide mischief? It might sound stupid to some of you, but remember that this is in the irreverent tradition of the "Brat Pack" movies of the 80's. It doesn't take itself very seriously. The gameplay is amazing, it's actually a polished "GTA: San Andreas" engine. There are tons of possibilities in this new game by Rockstar, but it's only for the PS2 so if you don't have one, you're out of luck.
Cooking Mama for Nintendo DS: (In stores now.) I have seen this game described many ways, but my favorite is "Martha Stewart meets Warioware Touched". Unfortunately, the reviews I've read aren't the best due to some actions not being recognized by the game and the scoring too consistent; one small error counts just as much as a large one. However, it has also been noted that it has it's fun aspects and you won't be disappointed as long as you don't expect too much. I guess that's all we can reasonably ask from a game that basically makes you do the same thing over and over. :\ It's cute, if that affects your decision to buy it. Expect to see this title on the Nintendo Wii in February 2007.
It has been a few days since LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy was released, and it has claimed all of my free time. (Which isn't much, but if you cut out meals...) I strongly urge all Star Wars fanatics to pick this one up. Hell, if you just like either Lego OR Star Wars, it's still a fun and involving play. It has 2-player co-op (Maybe more? I haven't tried.), you get to ride in landspeeders, AT-ST chicken walkers, and if you unlock the "Use Old Save" option, you can load all of the characters and levels from the first LEGO Star Wars game!
I own it for the XBOX, my best friend owns it for the PS2 and says it's pretty much the same except for minor graphical details. (Our TVs are for shit though, so we might not be all that accurate on judging graphics.) It is currently also out for the XBOX 360, PC and the Nintendo DS. The Nintendo DS one I also own, and it's...weird. The non-portable versions seem to stick to the movie, the DS version's cutscenes are all that stays true to form. That was to be expected. :\ There is also a DS wireless mode, but you can't even play unless all parties involved have the cart. I don't know if it's out for PSP, but if it's not, it probably will be later.
That's pretty much all I have to say for now. A little tidbit for Star Wars fans though, if you haven't picked up the newly released Limited Edition Star Wars Trilogy DVDs, choose your store carefully as they all have different exclusive packs. Walmart sells the DVDs individually packaged with their appropriate Star Wars comic books; Best Buy sells all three DVDs together in a collectible tin, and if Target has anything I don't know it. Consider all options. :)
Hey everyone. I was browsing gameinformer.com, and I found some items that are worth getting excited over. I thought I would share, since I remembered that I could vent my excitement into this community. (Feel free to do the same!)
Just to let you all know, if you trade in your DS to EB Games, you get $50 store credit. Perfect to put towards a new DS Lite! In fact, today and tomorrow, EB Games is giving $70 store credit! Don't believe me? Click here! I don't believe you need that coupon, as my friend Eric and I went tonight and got the extra $20 credit when we turned our DSes in.
I'm glad they let me keep it's leash. I'm going to miss it. :(
Anyway, trade away!
(Don't know about the Nintendo DS Lite? Here and here are some great links for you to see.)
I thought you guys might like to take a look at some of the work I’ve been doing making arcade cabinets. I have a dedicated Ikaruga (Dreamcast) cocktail table cabinet that I’m trying to finish up. Go to http://www.carabear.net and click Coin-Ops on the left! ^_^
I’m really glad this community got started. I love dedicated hardware/consoles and could talk about them all day!

wishlist: in no order and I can't think to add any links without just googling but...
1. Nintendo Wii 2. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (should get SSB for Gamecube) 3. Gamecube GBA player 4. PSP with modchip, if it works, so I can use most recent firmware AND homebrew 5. DS Lite 6. A new DDR controller, will probably get a platform 7. Metal Slug Anthology for Wii 8. Metal Slug for Sega Saturn, still would like this, would help round out my Saturn collection 9. Neo-Geo console or arcade system 10. More Saturn games 11. A white Japanese Saturn (have grey Japanese mk1 and black American mk2) 12. Hello Kitty Dreamcast 13. Ikaruga (sp?) 14. Bangai-oh 15. PS3, if that is the only system that they will make the next Virtua Fighter for, otherwise I may pass. 16. Taito arcade games 17. and semi-neglected Sega classics re-released and/or remade for next-gen systems, esp. Wii, stuff like: NiGHTS Burning Rangers Space Harrier Super GT (aka Scud Race?) Fighting Vipers Panzer Dragoon Space Channel 5 Jet Set Radio, Dreamcast one is still one of my favourites...
maybe a decent Sonic game, the Wii one might be it and the DS one is supposed to be good
I figured that I could get this community started with a theme. The theme until further notice is WISHLISTS. Anybody who wants to join in this theme, just post a list of games/consoles/peripherals that they want, with links to photos or articles of the product. (If you don't want to do a theme post, that's cool too.) I'll start us off.
