Ben's Week In Review: May 17

Okay. No comment on what's going on - personally - right now. Just gaming. :)

You know...I don't really care what Kojima's new game is

No, I don't. I don't care. I don't give a flying fig what the game is, or what it'll be called. Know why? Because Hideo Kojima made it, so it's gonna be awesome; no ifs, ands or buts about it. I found it interesting that his project might actually be Tornado Outbreak, but I only thought about it for a fleeting moment. I sat there and went, "hmm...wonder how that might work..." for about ten seconds and then my very reasonable brain just said, "dude, this is Kojima. It's going to rule, no matter what." Now, I will freely admit that whatever he makes may not fall into my wheelhouse; i.e., if he creates a flight sim or RTS, I probably won't play it. But despite my own personal preferences, I can pretty much guarantee it'll be a quality production and one that likely takes another step up the video game innovation ladder. There's no denying this guy's drive and talent, and to waste time debating over his new project is almost an insult... Perfectionists don't screw things up. They may create something you're not interested in, but they won't screw it up. That much, I promise.

A Slim PS3, eh? Hmm...

When I first heard about the "redesigned" PS3 Sony would supposedly unveil at E3, I didn't pay much attention. Such rumors are always evident every year, and "redesigned" is incredibly vague; it could mean just about anything. Then we got those leaked photos of what appears to be the new PS3 Slim and I said to myself, "well...that should definitely work." I never really had a problem with the PS3's size, but I can see how it might be a detriment: it's super crazy heavy and yes, a bit cumbersome. Besides, after all the technological advancements they've made in the past few years, it's clear Sony doesn't need all that space inside any longer. Now, the only question is: if they do reveal this slimmer, thinner, lighter PS3, does that mean they announce a price cut at the same time? A cosmetic change is always nice but in the end, that's all it is...cosmetic. It really doesn't change the impact it has on our wallets and these days, that's what consumers care about most. I say it would make for an awesome setup. Just say, "here comes the new PS3 Slim and oh, by the way, it'll be cheaper, too!" :)

Personal gaming update

I'm wandering around Dollet in FFVIII, Drawing all the first-level magic out of the enemies so I can Mid-Mag RF my 100 Fires into 20 Firas and so on. And because I have a disease, I absolutely won't stop until I have 100 of each of those second-level spells, which means it takes a little while. If any of you are lost, it means you haven't played FFVIII and if that's the case...well then, shame on you. ;) I go back to LBP every now and then but at this point, I feel like I'm just waiting on inFamous, which I'm fairly convinced I want to play now. Either that, or Red Faction: Guerilla...but I'm trying to save a little money, just because I had to drop an unexpected grand on my root canal this past week, and there are other extenuating circumstances.

Circumstances I will not get into at this juncture. Night all. :)

Lol keep getting those spells =P kinda tedious but hey everyone plays differently. I wish I could save money with all these games and bundles. inFamous, Red Faction are both going to be day ones and the Dissidia PSP bundle are going to cost me. The Slim PS3, eehhhh....dunno, think it's too early and at this point, why? The only thing different that they CAN do to it is make smaller chips, and take away a usb port or two =| it's essentially bare bones already...maybe the wi-fi?

It would be awesome for Kojima's team to pick up an existing IP (sorry, I like to dream ok?) I would give anything if he could take a shot at Dragonball Z, or the Matrix, or Batman for christs sake. I know you think that it would waste his creative genius, but he would do it completely flawless and for the fans. Especially if he was one. I've seen a leaked box photo for the ps3 slim. It looked pretty authentic. Looks like they just got rid of the Spider-man lettering.

Yes. I even saw a kid playing a demo of it on a PS3 kiosk at a Wal-Mart (we're talking a hicktown U.S.A. Wal-Mart here). I guess they have some kind of exclusive deal on this one. I wanted to try it out, but the bastard wouldn't leave. Couldn't blame him though. The fighting system looked very well put together. I just want a free roaming Batman game. You could go all over Gotham and fight crime much like New York in Web of Shadows. You could grapple instead of swing. You could use the batmobile, the bike, the batwing, or the jetpack to get around as well. With Kojima's touch, every time he spread his cape to leap off of a building would be dramatic as hell. The music would rock because he would get the best composer for the job. The cutscenes and graphics would be of MGS4 caliber. The whole game would be an epic masterpiece through and through. His team could even use their mastery of cell shading and do it in the style of the animated series. What kills me is that they've gotten most of the voice actors from the series but are going with a realistic look. Not saying the game is gonna be crappy, but it can be better. I want Prototype all kindza crazy!!!!!! That looks F'in goooood.

Hey Ben who's your favorite FFVIII GF? I always saw FFVIII as having the best Summons out of any FF. Well maybe save for FFVI.

I want to play the game again, such an awesome cast and story. Really fun moments in that game. You always feel like you're truly doing something that MATTERS.

I don't see why the internet is going crazy with the rumor that MGS4 might (read NOT) coming to Xbox. When NG2 went to PS3 it was hardly news. I don't think it will, but it would be smart if it did. These companies want to make money, this is why they exist. They want as many people to play their games as possible. Kojima seems a bit different though, so that's why it probably won't.

I wouldn't want a slim PS3.
Slim Ps2 was something that warned me not to get a slim version of PS3.
Majority of my friends who got a PS2 in 2007 and after that all get their Slim Ps2 overheat less than 10 hours into gaming, though some however lasted for years(those who got theirs earlier of course but not all).
One of my friend had his overheated 2 hours into gaming after he bought it!!!
My fat PS2 is 7 years old and it's still good and going(though I had some scare sometimes..........).

No offence here, but the slim version really is not so good, but who cares bout my opinion, I'm just an idiot who's going to get 20 thumbs down on this comment.

I have never ever had a console on or played a game for over 10 hours...let alone 5...probably 2 at the most...and that's rare...

Maybe for the people who do play them for that long, they should have a warning on the box...VIRGINS BEWARE: WILL ONLY LAST 10 HOURS...

PS3 slim might be a bit better since I like to take my PS3 down my dad's when I go visit him and sometimes over a friends house and talk about a weight on your back! Would also be nice if there was a propper PS3 caddy case :(.

As for FF8 I absolutely love the game, first time I played through I just wanted to finish the story (and a very long one at that), second time around I wanted to explore everywhere and level my characters up as much as possible, it takes time but it's worth it in the end :)

aslong as Kojimas new game is not another MGS, im happy. I really don't want that to be milked and ruined!

He hinted at a vampire themed game in mgs3 and that would be interesting!

Either way, Koj needs to venture out of MGS before he becomes known as the george lucas of video games.

Man, I'm all for expressing one's opinion but to bash Prince isn't cool. I don't listen to his music lately, but I would never bash the man; he's an artist. These days that's very hard to find, so I have nothing but respect for him. You don't have to like his music, but show some respect.

Back on topic. Anyways, someone mentioned the reliability of slim consoles. I don't know if that could apply to a slim PS3, and why that happened with slim PS2s I have no idea. I'm sure Sony wouldn't want that kind of reputation for PS3 considering how epic RROD is.

They way I see it is if you don't like something, don't go bashing it. Just do your own thing and be happy :) Oh, and welcome Lotusflow3r.

I still stand on the grounds that slim ps3 isn't coming out this early.

Heck,if it's released i wouldn't be surprised if it has a whole number of issues,like over-heating and blu-ray drive problems.After all MS still making money outta that faulty 360,why shouldn't we SONY do the same. This is where fat ps3 owners will have the upper hand for being early adopters.

You'd figure that the price drop would be for the regular PS3. Making smaller tech usually increases manufacturing costs. Well, unless they strip the slim of a couple ports here and there.

One note about 500 Gb HDDs:

The one I got OCCASIONALLY causes the PS3 to fail to detect it upon power-up; I then have to do a forced shut-down and reboot, after which it has always worked (touch wood). The 500 Gb HDD on my father's PS3 works perfectly.

Sorry, I don't have the specs in front of me, but it is a known problem, so you should be able to find info on the web.

In my opinion for the PS3, the biggest thing to look at in a new hard drive is the size of the buffer. I have a 500GB drive, and is is amazing to watch how fast things install compared to the original. I installed a 1 gig file onto my system on both drives, and there was a 15 second difference...

I paid $87 for a 500 from Newegg.

Kratos, that's a really good idea. You need to submit that. Seriously. Google your question man. I'm sure it's went down alot in the past 3 years though. I almost wanna say it was near a grand during launch.

DG, I think they could do the back story of how Raiden became the cyber ninja. I'm thinking it could be like MGS meets Ninja Gaiden.

Kratos, there was a recent report (May 15) on Joystick that Sony looses about $40 per console. That's down from the $100 at launch. I think there just estimates through. No one really knows for sure.

fatelementality i ust looked up the production cost of a ps3 and like what barnabee jones said sony loses about $40 but at launch it took over 800 dollars to put together a ps3 so we can all guess that sony was giving the ps3 all or nothing
and thank god it worked out

After your post the other week I got an itch to play FF8 again... so I'm doing it for the eight time, I think.... Yeah It's awesome... I'm currently carding t-rexaurs in the training center to get a shumi card, so I can keep playing and then modding the cards for the magic, I guess I'm sick too, but play the game differently...

I've heard of doing that, but never really tried it. Remember, this is only my second play-through. Eight...?! Wow. :)

The time when Kojima devs a game for the 360 is the day when the video game industry dies due to Micro$ofts anti-competive tactics

seriously why the hell is microsoft always throwing there money around
are they really that lazy as to not make there own games but just count on buying up exclusives just to stay in the game
i have nothing against there selfish ways
but its not fair how sony works so hard to bring quality exclusives to us
while those bastards sit back and watch everybody else do all the work

also i cant believe microsoft paid square enix to release final fantasy 13 as a simultaneous release for both systems its fucked up and square enix said they will finish the ps3 version before the 360 version and just hold the ps3 version until the 360 version is finished

are they really that afraid of a little competition

what a bunch of sore losers

LOl Kratos you think from the guys responsible of windows vista they can do a decent game?

Xbox 360 hardware is a total failure , they only have the fortune of be the lead platform in almost all multiplat games only good exclusives dead rising 1 and fable 2.

also games that before rocked on sony system now suck..just see at Resident Evil ,Silent Hill and GTA its like the xbox ruins the games .

I hate to add anymore fuel to the fire here but Star Ocean 4 also took a nasty nosedive in quality. Star Ocean 3 was rated much higher than SO4, and the battle system seems to lack feeling and polish. As for RE5, I loved the co-op, and the game is fine, but it wasn't better than RE4 in most of our eyes. I just hope when SO4 hits PS3 (yes I say when), we get extras, and foremost I want the battle system to be polished. As for MGS4, I don't know why 360 fanboys would want it when the lot of them are saying it's a movie and not a game. Plus, you have to play MGS1 2 & 3 to fully grasp what is going on in most of MGS4's story. I wouldn't go so far as to conclude MS being the cause of game quality lacking. Resident Evil had a lot to live up to, and Silent Hill I believe was handled by a different team. Still, I'm a firm believer in exclusive titles turning out better than multiplats.

I am not overly interested in the PS3 Slim. I think if my PS3 Fat went belly up, I would scour the internet for new old stock of the original model, 60GB. They are still around on eBay.

I am sure whatever game IP Kojima creates, it will be something special; saying this, I haven't finished playing MGS4 yet... I have been concentrating on Killzone 2... I know, someone will scold me for it... but hey; I am enjoying KZ2 immensely at the moment...

I didn't finish GTA4 or Fallout...I don't know if I will either, they are not really my style of game. But I got Fallout for 30$, maybe someone I know will want to play through it. I prefer a tighter 10-15 hour game than a game where I am just wandering around most of the time.

Hey.....check Kojima's page again. Lighting in the sky along with a huge 5 and a countdown to probably another tease. I hate this man but love him at the same time. If this ends up being tornado outbreak, I'm gonna be pissed. I know he has the Midas touch, but it's gonna break alot of hearts if it's something else. The only thing that doesn't fit is the farm fence. Looks like a farm fence.
