I think so. Although we better wait for migya to answer that if we want to be certain.

I know what Genesis is. I've not heard of "Sega Mega Drive" before.

Don't think so. Sega Mega Drive was the 2nd game system that Sega brought out. The 1st game system they brought out was called Sega Mastersystem and that first came out about 16-17 years ago. Sega Mega Drive first came out here about 14 years ago

I don't know that system, but I know the games you've said such as Tekken.

I'm looking to download Tekken games for the PC off the net but can't find it on Bearshare.

Sega Mega Drive ws the flavour of the day but got overtaken quickly by Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis very quickly. I still have the Mega Drive and got it out about a week ago and played some of those old games. Really nice actually

IGN has a preview of the latest Fallout 3 demo. Seems like they have fixed the two worst flaws of Oblivion, the conversation system and the levelling (radically changing the first and refining the latter, so not the whole world changes according to the character level).

Here's the link:

I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GEM!!! (and it's still more than one year away)

I find those games boring. But for some reason, the Fallout series has always caught my eye. I've got to say after the feeling of not being so satisfied with Oblivion, Fallout 3 is on my list.

Not much. Things happen way too slow for me. I'm a big fan of CRPGs, as I'm more interested in the story than anything else. If the story sucks, I'm not able to keep playing...

The problem is that good CRPGs only come out from time to time. It's a rare year if you have more than one or two decent titles.

Other than that, I only follow the GTA and Madden series (not NBA live, as their latest titles were really disappointing).

Oh well, that gives me enough time to watch bball games. :wink:

Recently downloaded Duke Nukem 3D Manhatten Project (had played and finished every phase of the original Duke Nukem some 8 years ago) and also finding some older games to play. Alot of nice games to pass the time out there

What did you guys think of the E3 press conferences?

I thought all three of them (Sony, MS, and Nintendo) felt pretty lackluster given the opportunity that each had.

I am by no means a gamer, especially with PC games, although I do own a PS2. In my college days I played much more... that was back in the days of Nintendo and then Sega Genesis just came out. Many hours spent playing Tecmo Bowl and Double Dribble!

Anyway, that being said, a buddy at my last job sold me on trying the PC game World of Warcraft. It is a MMORPG or whatever that is called. Man, I got addicted to that game QUICKLY!!! Had to take a step back from it but still play once a week or so.

Anyone play that game?

I can agree that MS' conference was lackluster, especially since everyone was waiting for a price drop counter or something else huge. Instead they just rolled out the games for Fall 07 and mentioned exclusivity with upcoming Splinter Cells.

Conversely, I can't agree that Sony had a strong showing either. Besides Killzone, which does look tight, their big announcement was that they haven't lost MGS4, which was widely rumored. You can't really call maintaining staus quo from a year ago a coup, which is why I felt they had a mediocre showing as well. Also, almost all the games they trotted out were due to hit shelves in mid to late 2008, whereas MS' parade were due out for later this year.

You should check out the Nintendo press conference, because I guess they came away with the win. They aren't going to be revelling in the glory that is Rock Band but they did nab Guitar Hero 3 and their first party games look as nice as ever. Wii Fit, Mario Galaxy, Smash Bros. Brawl all look to be console movers and were on display.
