interesting read about what trent thinks of the game industry and his attempt at making a game....

his take on the ps3 is funny though...

that was a pretty good read. Im glad Im not the only one who's fav. game is super mario3 lol.

I have no interest in the wii style gaming either 

I am due for a new system soon though,, whats a better system between an x-box or ps3? I was going to get some pc games but my hard drive took a crap and Im stuck on my wifes computer  for now.

 

I think it would be interesting if Rob Zombie started creating some gaming shit,,, he's got one warped mind  lol

The wii has its place in the market.... I still don't get bored of that wii bowling though.... its more of a party system, where you got a ton of people over drinkin beers... its not so fun by yourself...

as for which is the better buy, a 360 or ps3? im not gonna lie to ya.... that all depends on what type of gamer ya are.... if your mostly into the final fantasy games or other square games, id say the ps3.... but if your into everything else id say 360... especially if you plan to play online... the online experience is far superior on the 360 than it is on the ps3.... at least from my personal experiences playing at friends houses.... it doesn't matter which system you get cause onlive is coming soon enough... you'll be able to play the same crap you play on a ps3 on an iphone... so it really wont even matter which system you have in the next year or so...

both of the systems have hardware issues.... I guess theres new talks of a kill switch built into the ps3 like there was in the ps2, which sony got sued over.... one of the few friends of mine who has a ps3 got screwed with his.... his warranty ran up, and 3 days later his blueray drive stopped reading bluerays... it would play ps2 games and dvd's just fine... just no blueray movies or ps3 games.... so he paid sony $160 to fix it... got it back, then less than a month later, he got the yellow light of death... which if your out of warranty... your just screwed cause your systems cooked, unless you wanna pay $160....

I did some googling to see if there was a way a skilled technician could fix this issue... and found these youtube videos of how to fix it... I told my friend he had nothing to lose letting me try to fix it.... so I stripped it down to a bare motherboard, put the edges of the board on a couple of phone books to leave most of the board free... and then I went over the board with a heat gun for 20 minutes... put it all back together with some fresh thermal grease on the cpu and rsx chips, and BOOM! it fired right up...

its crazy cause sony recently commented on the fix and says that it doesn't work....

but bootnie-lee who also knows this friend of mine, saw that the ps3 works.... sony's just mad cause people can do it for cheap and not have to cough up $160 for one of their goons  to put it in an oven... whats funny is the guy went and bought one of those ps3 slims the day I went to fix his old one thinking I wasn't going to be able to do it....

whats interesting though is that most of the systems that get the yellow light of death, all seem to happen around the same time... just a few months after the warranty runs out... so now theres speculation of a kill switch that makes the console self destruct after so many hours of use... but I can vouch that the fix for the yellow light of death works.... I told the guy I helped out sony claims it doesn't work... and he got a good chuckle out of it...

and as for sony's claim it can't be done cheaply? he paid $9 for a tube of premium thermal grease.... and thats all it cost him... sure as hell beats the $160 sony told him over the phone huh?

Well, we bought a wii , and Super Mario bros. for Christmas, what a blast. One of the best puchases I've made in a while.

We've only been playing Mario because we need to get another nunchuck to play the sports, but to much fun

lately I been playin lots of tanks on wii play....

damn does that game get hard quick.... LOL

level 134 is the farthest I ever got.... those invisible tanks are a bitch!

the games so simple and basic, yet its taken more hours of my time than any modern game with dazzling gimmick graphics...

a lot of those games on the wii still have the old school nintendo like unlimited replay value....

we're plannin on playin a drinking game based on wii bowling new years eve.... I got a feeling im gonna get my ass kicked though.. my room mate can some how manage to get strikes every single time... whereas the game seems to hate me, and always leaves 1 or 2 pins straglin when I get lots of strikes in a row....

my girlfriend and all her friends are convinced wii sports is sexist though.... see if you get the same results we got... try bowling with a female mii, and see if your average changes.... cause I can average about 250-260, and when I bowl with her character(or any other female character), im lucky to break 200.... and her scores go up when she uses my character.... My room mate averages about the same with a female character... its funny though cause every time I win my girl blames it on the game being sexist... LOL
