PostSubject: THE WAR and whose winning   Mon Apr 06, 2009 1:58 am

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and the WII are the Main Consoles out right now, and i hate ruling one out right away but the WII has lost this war. It's not because of the graphics or the online capability is bad but it all adds up. The really big factor is the lack of games for WII there is just nothing to play for it, and they haven't announced anything for it that i wouldn't get for the 360 or PS3 first. The real combatants are the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Now who reins supreme is the question in my opinion PS3 has better graphics, and AI capabilities but 360 has a better ONLINE COMMUNITY. Over the last couple years 360 has developed a better variety of games. these slight differences are not the deciding factor in this war of the consoles.

The definitive results are (or at least mine are):

Xbox 360 -1st
PC -2nd
PS3 - 3rd
Wii - 4th

I can't remember the last time I picked up the PS3 or Wii controller. Honestly, unless they come out with more exclusive games for PS3, I don't see myself buying any game that I can't get for 360. I don't know what it is about achievement points, but I love getting them and challenging myself to getting the really hard ones. I know PS3 has their own achievement system, the trophies, and you would think
"Hey, I got a trophy!" > "Hey, I got some points!", but I'm already over 21k achievement points, which is a lot if you don't have OCD with the points like I do.

Wii doesn't have any sort of achievement system like this, if they did maybe I would go back and play some of my old games. Honestly, I don't think I know anyone that plays any other game on Wii except for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Unfortunately, the Wii doesn't have very good online capability (the only online game I ever played was Brawl and the latency was just awful and made it unplayable). Honestly, the issue with Wii is that they do not have any good games. They keep coming out with games geared right towards kids, or just plain old shitty games. Unless they fix some of these major issues, I see Wii remaining at the back of the pack until the next gen systems come out.

Oddly enough, I'm not a huge fan of the 360. I love my PS3 and PC games, but mostly out of preference. Wii has some good games that I've seen - Umbrella Cronicles and HOTD Overkill may be 1 trick ponies, but these rail shooters get the job done - but once again, is focusing on the child and casual audiences.

If you want a sales war, 360 is obviously far in front, with the Halo and Gears Series doing their jobs.

PS3 let me down a bit with Killzone 2's main story, but do not cross me Online. Otherwise, other PS3 games I'm playing are cross system and just out of person preference on the PS3.

PC will always be my bread and butter. RF Online consumes my 5pm to 11pm time slot. Fallout 3 and L4D at work. End of story.

Otherwise...... yeah. I have no point. And work is done. Peace!

How is RF Online? It looks kinda like Star Ocean or maybe Phantasy Star.

It's a Korean Grindfest for the PvE. That really isn't where the meat is. The game itself is a PvP bonanza. Every 8 hours there is a PvP war for a big ol pile of ore, which coincidently contains key materials for making gear, upgrading gear, and upgrading my pants.

The level grind at first is smooth, 26-30 is a little harsh, then 31-37 is smooth, 38 to 40 harsh, 41-47 smooth, 48-50 is a *list line of explicit comments here*, then you have a quest to level beyond that point, and THEN is the cakewalk to the max level at the moment, 55.

PvP is as much gear-baised as it is skill-baised. A good player in crap gear will survive, a crap player in good gear will survive, a good player in good gear will wipe out the room in front of him with minimal trouble. The chipwar, the war that occurs every 8 hours for the ore in the mines, can be an epic battle, a casual win, or a butchery of everything you hold dear. (Those comments refer to the 5 PM, 1 AM, and 9AM EST time wars respectively.)

As you mentioned PSO, I'll Make the races a nice and easy comparison for you.

I play an Accretian, which is basically a CAST on RF. The Bellatos are basically the Humans, and Coras are Newtalians.

Race Strengths/Weaknesses -

Accretia - No magic, but you get a rocket launcher or flamethrower. In my mind, any mage can cast a fireball, but it's a bit harder to cast when your being shot in the face. Armor has 10% more def to compensate for lack of magic.

Bellato - Well rounded statwise, has an unlisted minor dodge boost for their edge. They have all element spells and Holy tree spells for buffs, as well as MAUs. Read MAUs as your own personal generic Mech from the Gundam series.

Cora - Cora get an overall damage boost (imagine that). They are also your main caster race, with a Dark Tree of spells that hit liek a truck. However, they are quite weak and you can cut through them like paper. They get summons for a race special, which levels up with them, and thus every cora could be, in reality, 2 high DPS sources.

Since there are 3 races in conflict, there is a triangle system in place with race specials. Basically, it goes like this.....

Launcher > MAU > Animus(Summon) > Launcher

Overall, RF is an enjoyable game if played with a gaming guild or friends. If you deside to look into it, I'd be glad to give you a hand. I personally play on Dahin Server, as an Accretian, but I have friends in all races if you decide to take a look at it.

If there's a trial or buddy code or something, I wouldn't mind giving it a shot.

If FF4 is the one with Cecil and Terra then it probably will be good. I know they are different in Japan and the US.

I just looked at the link. It doesn't look like it is going to be a game you can go out and buy; it looks like you have to download it from the WiiWare Virtual Console thing, you know, where you buy the old NES, SEGA, SNES, etc, games. It says in the description that it was released as a mobile phone game. Maybe they're porting it? I doubt it, the graphics would be crap.
