Seriously nothing against India but they need to either put call centers in countries where English is a first language, or have some sort of eloquence test before hiring, because its shocking and painful to try and get help. I had the same problem with Orange internet call centres.

Microsoft doesn't care if you can communicate with these people. They figure you're only calling them for warranty repairs or to cancel XBL, neither of which Microsoft wants you to do, so they pay as little as possible for customer service. It sucks, but that's business.

Everyone does it now. Banks, ISPs etc. Sad It's worst when you call a phone line then spend 7 minutes listening to an automated message directing you to the website, where the option you want isn't availible or its just not working.

I don't think I've ever bought a game out of spite. But this is one I am picking up for that reason.

You remind of that Seinfeld episode where Jerry returns the jacket for spite. Nyaa The only reason I'm contemplating picking up Conduit is out of curiousity because I've been watching it for so long. I really need to get a rental service going.

I do feel that the reviews are really questionable and hard to gauge. On the one hand you have sites lauding it because its a decent game, or because it's this standout effort from 3rd parties (that deserves an extra nod because of that). Then you have these reviewers on this backlash anti-hype trip, or people with a beef against the console or the control method.

And then you have these ass-ish reviewers comparing the game to other titles not even on the same system and complaining about it. I wish that more reviews would just judge it based on what it is and not what it isn't. As soon as you see a review referencing how other systems can do better graphics or comparing it to epic shooters which wii owners can't play, I really can't get a decent impression of what the game is really like.

LOL Sorry you had to experience the ass end of MS customer service. I have called twice for RRoD warranty. Both times went smooth and I was done each time in under 10 minutes. Both times my system was back at around two weeks after I sent it.

If ESL employees on MS CS line are giving you too much shit just be an ass and ask in a harsh tone for a supervisor. Then bitch and moan at the supervisor. They will probably send you a free game with your system.

They said 2-3 days to get the labels (they no longer send boxes Sad ) and 2-3 weeks for the repair. Damn.

Gamespot Conduit review mainly says how it has great controls, great visuals, but is generic.

Technically, The Conduit is one of the finest looking games available for the Wii. Highly detailed enemies swarm the screen, tossing grenades and peppering you with fancy weaponry, and the game is able to run smoothly despite the chaos. Guns create a brief burst of light on walls as the bullets streak by and explosions illuminate the screen, leaving death in their wake. As fine as The Conduit performs technically, the lousy art makes it an eyesore at times. The levels blend together because they all have the same drab color scheme and no memorable landmarks. The enemies could have been ripped from any number of science fiction stories and are based on an unimaginative insect design that would be impossible to pick out of a lineup. It's a shame the art direction couldn't have matched the impressive technology because what could have been a visual showcase for the system is now just a model for wasted potential.

Wasted potential is the main theme for The Conduit because its technical prowess is overshadowed by misguided design decisions pasted onto a generic science fiction universe.

Guy watch this trailer:

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/launch-trailer-dawn-of/52002

It's for Anno, I think the PC version but ignore that, it's the animation of 2-D static images with motion blended in that looks pretty beautiful to me. It has nothing to do with the game I might add, but its lovely to watch.

So....

ICARIAN KINDRED SPIRITS

It's got good reviews, it's a platformer which is a genre we all love, it has Kid Icarus like visuals and its on Wiiware. So..... why has no one bought it yet?

BTW, the same goes for Swords and Soldiers.

i bought icarian.  it's not as good as reviews make it out.  it's sort of like lost winds but not as nice.  it's a solid 8 game though.  i'm sure i will finish it which is more than i can say about a lot of other games i have

yeah i have S&S too.  i played the first three levels.  kinds nice but i didn't get into it.  graphics remind me of the lost vikings though which is nice

 Yeah, that's what I was told by several people before mine RRoD last summer, but Microsoft sent me a shipping box anyway. I don't know if it makes a difference ordering online or not, but I gots a shipping coffin--er, box. I kept it too just in case my console breaks again . . . which it probably will. Sad

Guy watch this trailer:

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/launch-trailer-dawn-of/52002

It's for Anno, I think the PC version but ignore that, it's the animation of 2-D static images with motion blended in that looks pretty beautiful to me. It has nothing to do with the game I might add, but its lovely to watch.

So....

ICARIAN KINDRED SPIRITS

It's got good reviews, it's a platformer which is a genre we all love, it has Kid Icarus like visuals and its on Wiiware. So..... why has no one bought it yet?

BTW, the same goes for Swords and Soldiers.

Icarian or rather NyxQuest is not available in America yet.  That's why  I don't have it.   And I haven't picked up S&S yet because I just don't have the time to play it at the moment. I'm not one for creating a backlog.

Yeah Icarian its not available here. But Lost Winds kind of left me with a bad taste, as if I paid for the first level of a full game and I bet that is what this game feels like.

Kojima doesn't want to do MGS5, well here is a thought, then dont do it. Its that easy, its Kojima Productions, you are the boss, they do what you say Kojima. Watch his next game be MGS5 and him come up with some excuse as to why he is doing it again. The guy is addicted to his own franchise.

I wonder if there's a degree of fear of failure too.  I mean the one other game he did this decade was Zone Enders.  Never played it myself but it got a good enough reception, but it was nowhere near the legendary status of the Metal Gear games.  He's been talking about MGS4 being the last Metal Gear game for a while, but more and more just keep popping up.  He's either is a perfectionist who still doesn't think he got it a right, an addict, or scared to try something new.

i bought icarian.  it's not as good as reviews make it out.  it's sort of like lost winds but not as nice.  it's a solid 8 game though.  i'm sure i will finish it which is more than i can say about a lot of other games i have

yeah i have S&S too.  i played the first three levels.  kinds nice but i didn't get into it.  graphics remind me of the lost vikings though which is nice

I thought Lost Winds was an 8. The Icarian reviews have given it an 8 too so it meshes with you.

S&S doesn't look like my sort of game. I'm still making my way through World of Goo and I dont feel like splashing cash at the moment.

I got this weird email from MS today. The woman on the phone said she would send shipping labels but the email sounded like I have more hoops to jump through and have to arrange all this crap myself.

I thought you liked it? I felt it was good length given the price.

He's like Miyazaki, he teases us with false retirements.

 If so, then that sucks. Microsoft sent me out a large box, which contained return shipping labels, foam pads, and just enough packing tape to seal the box. I was actually impressed. Happy

GG what mag are those scans from? Fragile is a game that I have high hopes for, Eternal Sonata was good (same team) but lacked any heart whatsoever - in terms of how the story was relayed and in lacking any signature gameplay elements.

Adjusted the SQL query for grabbing posts to improve efficiency by ~50 fold.  Hopefully that'll cut some of the load on the site for a bit.

I have no fucking clue what you just said.  

he said he worked out some coding magic that will probably help resolve the 500 error issue to some extend Happy

Yes, my initial implementation was not scaling well in a spot.  With more and more total posts, the counter for how many comments each user was getting slower and slower to execute.  The comment count is now a column that gets updated with each post rather than calculated on the fly.  While it's a slower day so far so I can't really tell the effect, I like the improvement.

BTW: Regardless, you can all stop posting the 500 Internal Server Error in the Official Bugs Thread.  It means the server's overloaded; there's an error page telling you that.

NeoGAF have some scans from a Nintendo Power magazine back in '91 showing off all the new characters. Upon seeing this, you'll have to wonder...WHO DREW THIS?

I vividly remember opening that issue of Nintendo Power and seeing those pictures of the Final Fantasy II cast for the first time.  I was pretty much in disgust and at that moment felt I had made the right choice by not getting a Super Nintendo.  God, particularly that picture of Kain. Whose homoerotic fantasy was that fulfilling?
