That's right. I have played Call of Duty 2. And I have played Kameo. And I must say, that I am going to find excuses to go to wal mart now. I would have played King Kong, but those damn 6 year iolds yelling at me and the wal mart electronics supervisor told me to let them have a turn...undeserving bastards >.> <.<

*grin* I remember spending ages playing on the pre-release Dreamcasts in virgin megastores a few years back. Though I never actually got around to buying one... and i guess neither did anyone else... :(

Was that king kong trailer that was around a while back the 360 one, or the current generation one? Cos I have to say the graphics didn't look very special.

What do you think of the games once you get to actually play them? To me they look like nicely polished versions of existing games, so I'm finding it hard to get excited at the moment.

They look excelent in my oppinion. In Call of Duty 2, the people look so real. Kameo looks excellent as well. King Kong...well I'll see today >.> <.<

And I couldn't kick the little s***ts, as much as I want to, that's how I got banned from a certain Toys R Us :(

So worth it though :D

but does the gameplay do anything new, or is it all about the looks?

It should have better AI, better physics, bigger levels, and an original storyline, what else could you ask for?

I and an original storyline,

'fraid not pardner. :( It'll take something huge to get that inplemented in all new games.

Well, it's call of duty 2 isn't it? Then it must be a continuation of call of duty 1, correct? Shouldn't that count as an original story?

At uni last year I used to see kids (who should have been in school) on all the demo consoles in HMV and Virgin. I always prefered going to PC world (I'm only here because I played a demo of JA in PC World), never been much of a console person, my last console was a Sega Master System.

"Original" besides the fact that it is based on true events?
=P

OH MY GOSH. I went to Wal Mart today and was exstatic over the thought of playing the Xbox 360 and guesswhat? The entire electronics department was having "techinical difficulties" according to the lady at the counter. And none of the TVs were on, or the PS2, GC, or 360.

I went home and cried myself to sleep :(

Thats what I was thinking, too.

Heheheh..... pwnt. I wanna go there tomorrow and see if it is there. I just want to see it in person and feel the controller. ^__^

I know what you mean. Somehow just holding the controller in my hands made me feel like a king. lol

That's not what I mean. :p

CoD 1 had characters, dialogue, ect. Even if it was based on true events it's still a diffrent story you can play in a videogame. It's not like the Battlefield series where you're thrown into a random battle to shoot people. Not to say I don't like the Battlefield series. If CoD 2 is anything like CoD 1, then i'd say it's a pretty original story for a videogame.

Now get off my back. :p

I played CoD2 at walmart yesterday, pretty kick ass, the controller was comfy, but looking at a screen that was 3 feet higher than me and 1 foot in front was not very fun...

Graphics feel like a 7800GT, kick ass.

"More rumors on the Xbox 360 front coming in from our friends at Kotaku. Looks like all the issues the 360 kiosks are having are due to wireless interference. "Apparently the 360’s wireless system can interfere with a store’s network-based inventory management system." Ok then. This problem should be fixed soon, sources say, but we'll just have to wait and see."

Seems liek x360s are taking out the wallmarts.... maybe its a microsoft takeover plan... ;)

Hope my dad doens't see this, he's a Steven Jobs worshipper. :/

I went there last night to buy a game with my friend, and lo and behold, there is a brand-spankin-new xbox 360 there. i played it. it was good.

interesting story here in the launch marketing tactics:
http://us.gizmodo.com/gadgets/home-entertainment/xbox-360-retail-bully-134320.php

Looks like they are purposefully engineering a sell-out situation so they can boast about it to increase demand. :)
So if you are one of those people who MUST have a 360 at launch you'd better get your order in (especially if you are in norway!).

Wonder what the shop keepers have to do if they HAVEN'T sold all their 20 consoles?? ;)

If Oblivion was the main reason for you to buy an xbox 360 early on you can wait even longer as the release of the game has been delayed until somewhere between February and Arpil 2006: http://www.gamespot.com/news/6136973.html :(

Yeah, saw it at walmart tonight. But crap, I don't care, cause I don't want it. The other two consoles in my opinion will be better, because I think M$ rushed this one for Christmas.

Hmm... too bad, one of my friends wanted a 360 because of that game...

We got our demo unit in on Halloween night. So head over to GameStop, if the six year olds get on your nerves.

Our Gamestop didn't get the 360 on display until 3 days after Wal-Mart did..heh.

So weird seeing as it caters to consoles.. and Wal-Mart beats it to the draw.

I just played a 360 yesterday. The game plays/looks about the same as it does on my computer. But the loading times are much longer! My brother picked up battlefront ii the same time i hopped on the 360, and it wasn't until after he bought it and moseyed over to me that the demo had loaded.

shukrallah
11-02-2005, 09:48 PM
Crap... slow loading... must be because it loads from a DVD... Rather than from an HD on a PC.

TiE23
11-02-2005, 11:17 PM
Yah. Well, I hardly noticed. Maybe its because I'm so used to the 2+ minute long loading times of BF2.

Just played CoD2. Man that was awesome. It was so clean, but yeah, the screen being straight up is murder on your neck. I think i'll have to make a stop at walmart today.:)
