Hi, my name is Maxwell.
I love the following things: football, football(yes I did type it twice. football is not called soccer), games, spicy food, noodles, and wearing sunglasses.
The games that are on top of my list are: Metal Gear Solid (all four are great), the first two Syphon Filter, Pro Evo Soccer, Final Fantasy (9 in particulair), Gran Turismo, Forza 2, king of fighters 98, Star Fox, Spyro(yes the dragon), Resident Evil, Phoenix Wright, and many more.
At the moment I can't play games that are not shoot 'm up. I don't know why this is but these are the only games that excite me at the moment. Games like: Ikaruga, Mars Matrix, DoDonPachi, Thunder Force, and R-Type.
the games im playing now: ikaruga, FF V, maken x (jap), dodonpachi.
I own alot of consoles: sega dreamcast, megadrive, saturn, ps2, ps1, snes, nes, n64, and a arcade machine.
I was never really good at SF2 and I didn't even know there was a SF3. I'm more a Dead or Alive and tekken man. I didn't think SF4 was special or something. I thought it was just going to be another SF. I think I'm wrong, The trailer at the bottom blew my mind.
IT LOOKS SO GOOOODDDD. I am acually hyped for this game, and i'll do my best to get good in it. I like the look of the new characters, but I just love the style.
If you were lured in here cause you thought this was about madden then you fail. this about the european version of win. For you americans its called soccer. for the rest of the world it's football.
In case you didn't know the european championship finals started saturday. The tourney has 4 poules followed by quarter finals and eventually a final. the favorites italy are in the pool of death. which includes: The Netherlands (my favorite), France, and romania. this is the pool with the most quality and only two teams will go to the next round. The netherlands are not in most bookies top 5 teams lists.
I'm a big fan of the pro evo soccer series made by konami, so every chance I can get to take a cheap shot at EA's fifa series I take. Not because I'm a fanboy but because I hate EA with a passion, and i don't like their fifa series.
What EA has done is simulate the whole tournament. they say portugal will be champions(I hate the portugal team) and that they will beat italy in the final. they also say that the netherlands are chanceless.
The Netherlands played italy yesterday and won 3-0. this is embarrissing for the italians who are world champs.
this is the original post i dont feel like translating (I can without babel fish so im just lazy)
Jammer maar helaas. Het Nederlandse Elftal begint vanavond pas met de eerste wedstrijd tegen Italië, maar het is bij voorbaat al een verloren strijd. Electronic Arts heeft met behulp van haar game UEFA 2008 namelijk een simulatie gedraaid en daaruit blijkt dat Italië en Frankrijk de groepswinnaars zullen worden.
Uiteindelijk zullen Italië en Portugal de twee sterkste landen blijken en in de finale tegenover elkaar komen te staan. Hierin zal Portugal met 2-1 als sterkste over de brug komen. Dit mede dankzij Cristiano Ronaldo, die topscorer van het toernooi wordt.
Of de simulatie het bij het rechte eind heeft of de werkelijkheid toch echt onmogelijk te voorspellen is zal de komende weken blijken. Tot die tijd kun je jouw voorspelling kwijt in de onderstaande reacties. Veel voetbalplezier gewenst!
So i'm getting the mgs4 ps3 bundle, and after I have completed the game I am going to want a second game. What should I get ? I have a list of games that look interesting.
I looks like fun and I think it will be a good game to play online. It's also the cheapest of the games on my list. Is it fun online? And do people play it a lot?
Good game? does it have enough replay value? is it fun to play?
I don't know about this one. It looks alright but console shooters don't really give me the chills. I liked time splitters 2 and halo 1 but the rest just don't do it for me.
Will this game be any different?
Virtua tennis 3 or similar
I liked top spin. But it got a bit boring after a while. Is this game different? Is it good fun? Is it worth the money?
Uncharted: Drakes fortune
Ive heard good things and bad things about this game. do the good outweigh the bad? Will it compell me to the end? Will I want to complete it?
And last but not least.
I loved GT2 and I love Forza 2. is this game worth a purchase over other games in this list?
Because of metal gear solid 4 I am now in the market for a ps3. I love buying new consoles. I love going real early to a store the day after I got enough money to buy a console. I love picking the new console up from the stand and looking contemplating in the games section of this console. It feels so good. It feels even better when you get t the register and pay in cash, walk out the store acting paranoid as if someone is going to steal it, after this I always get in the car with my dad who was nice enough to bring me to the shop. All I do in the car is read EVERYTHING on the box. When I get home with console in hand I always call some people over to open my BRAND NEW console (excuse the caps).
Above is one of those orgasmic feelings I get with new consoles. But sometimes I have to resort to second hand.
I love second hand stuff, as long as it is older than a ps1 I will buy second hand. When a console gets newer than the ps1 generation I feel like i'm stepping on thin ice.
See you can drop a snes from a ladder and it might survive but a ps2 will probaly explode in pieces. The technology is much too breakable these days, And even a console that looks good might be broken somewhere. But because consoles are so expensive I dont have a lot of choice.
But there is a big problem these days with the online second hand games and consoles. There are too many scammers they mostly roam on sites like craigslist, we in holland dont have craigslist, we have Markt plaats market place in english . Now you have two kinds of scammers in my eyes:
The obvious: mostly bad english and/or from Nigeria(sorry but it is true). Sells the console for really ridiculous low prices. Will do stupid things to get you to pay. (ship
internationally for free) they also often use western express or unknown banks
the best con men: these guys are the adders in the tall grass they wait passively for pray and con you in more subtle ways that you'll notice after.
O wait theres also the plain stupid that tried to be an elite conner.
In the past 2 days ive encountered atleast 4 scammers on my quest to a ps3. These encounters were once with selling my psp and the rest with looking for a ps3. The one that had me interested more than I was comfortable with was an ad that was offering 80 gig ps3s with mgs4 which is not coming to europe anytime soon. So I took a look and asked a few questions. The reason I even tried was because the ad said this guy was based in amsterdam. That would be the best because I live in amsterdam and always like to know what im buying. He replied with bad english while the ad was in dutch and after another question he said he was based in london. Wait what? So I told him that I couldn't afford shipping. And he replied that he would pay shipping. Well seemed unlikely cause shipping from england to the netherlands for a ps3 should be around 60 euros. That would kill his profit. So I bailed.
The experience with the potential buyer of my psp was obvious:
Hello Seller, i am Anita Ingram from Belgium and am happy to be the buyer of your item bove . I want to know if the present condition of the item is as described as am buying it as a gift for my Husband. I want to pay you immediately for the item today so that the package can be shipped asap. and i will be very grateful if you could help me ship this item to him via TNTPOST AANGETEKEND and i want you to get back to me with the total cost of this item plus shipping and also with your Bank account details this will help me to transfer the money into your Bank account and the money will be transfered from my bank Citi Bank please i am ready to send u your money first before u send the item so i want you to get back to me ontime with all i requested for and am not too good in dutch and i will like this deal to be completed in English and here is my Husband shipping address Name: Adebayo Tunde Address:25 road 7 City ; ile ife State :osun state Zip code:234036 Country:Nigeria
The funny thing is that her spelling is spot on but the grammar is a bit off. The big give away is the nigeria part.
But just to be sure If this was a serious person wanting my psp sorry Anita Ingram
I didn't reply to keep me safer.
of course there are people that are not scammers and i have had contact with a few. still i only want a ps3 and mgs, and maybe resistence or something else. but alot of the ads are out of my budget
Ill probaly buy a new ps3 so I can have that experience that I love so much.
Hideo kojima the one man that changed my gaming taste, was in amsterdam 2day. Of all places he could of gone he came to amsterdam. I was shocked surprised and very happy with the news. The event was at Media Markt Amsterdam. And he was going to start at 3 o'clock so I made sure I was there as early as possible.
I was there at about 11 and brought a friend and my psp and ds to pass the time. It was an epic wait, there were only 2 people infront of me in the line, they were 2 girls, yep girls and these girls were the definition to hardcore gamers. one of them had a well done tatoo on her back of snake in that mgs art style. she also had a very unique and very cool foxhound tattoo with a foxhound on her arm.
I mean these were the 2 best gaming tattoos Ive seen ever. While the other girl seemed far from hardcore and just a friend of the girl with the tattoos she was very nice. She overheard me talking about ninja gaiden 2 and she turned to me. “oe thats a fun game. Completed it last night. Pretty easy tho.” I stood there stunned and just replied that super:O.
I thought I was pretty hardcore for a mgs fan but I was blown away by the amount of unique items brought to get signed. One guy had a very rare mgs 3 subsistence limited edition he wanted to get signed. I only had mgs2 and 1 with me these are my favorite mgs games so I really wanted them signed. The line stretched about 5 isles when hideo started. I was only aloud to have one item signed so I chose the nicest looking cover. Which is mgs2 in my opinion. It has artwork galore and is just plain beautiful.
I also met takeshi we didnt have a long time cause he wanted a place in the line. but it was nice to finally meat a fellow dtoid member.
I tried a little japanese on him and the art director and they really were nice to me:) and replied to me in japanese. I actually understood and replied again and then shook his hand and said goodbye, thank you for making games, I hope you keep on making great games and asked him if he was gonna make a new snatcher. He laughed and just raised his shoulders.
I never thought id ever get fanboy giggles but today I did. It was great and It was so worth the wait.
Also, I think that these events do work because after the event I wanted to play it so bad that I put up a ad to sell my wii and psp so I could get a ps3. Just to play mgs4.
For your entertainment a little clippie of the action jacked from youtube.
Well if you are bored and have nothing to do then check these songs out. they are pretty short but fun enough to well have fun.
there are final fantasy songs, zelda, donkey kong. all done in sweet mouth sounds.
