They were ok, I just didn't like how the game actually played.

man, way to ruin a good thing! j/k i pray you're the only one who felt that way... I on the other hand am hoping God of War III is going to be the best game of next year!

I mean it was ok for shock and awe, just reminded me of Devil May Cry, which again was ok. I think Ratchet and Clank is one of the best Sony exclusives, but that is me.

God of War was the best!

I was so-so with Devil May Cry and didn't really like the way it played too much. God of War controlled completely intuitively to me though, it just felt right. And there is no more violent, graphic game out there. And it has the best music scores. And voice acting. And (for the PS2) graphics. And amazing stories. I find the stories they have weaved while preserving and expanding upon Greek mythology to be glorious, especially for a video game. Kratos' story is more tragic than most literary characters and certainly all video game characters. The PSP game continued the epic glory on a small scale platform. Devil May Cry to me is disposable, while God of War is essential...

You know it is funny i never liked God of war more since i love greek mythology but idk just never tripped my trigger. I may have to give the second one another shot i guess.

If you can get your hands on a PSP, GoW: Chains of Olympus tells the story of Kratos before GoW 1 while he was still Aries minion. The ending is especially hardcore...

Hm, well that is a possibility as well, lets hope for a psp price reduction.

I think I will start lending out my PSP and PS2 at work simply so people can play these games. I feel they are the finest games on their systems, albeit I still haven't played a ratchet & clank game to be honest. At this point I have R& C games to play on the PS2, PSP, and PS3!!!

true, the music games on Wii are pretty gimped - doubly so by a projector - I use mine on a huge projected screen too and some low texture games with lots of jaggies look like a great game where I'm looking through tears because I've just been punched in the face!

F - However I would like an upgraded version that would either have more internal storage or would let me play off the SD card. Oh, and SDHC support would be nice too!

from Wiki:

"At the Nintendo Fall Press Conference in October 2008, Satoru Iwata announced that Wii owners would have the option to download WiiWare and Virtual Console content directly onto an SD card. The option would offer an alternative to "address the console's insufficient memory storage". The announcement stated that it would be available in Japan in the spring of 2009.[83] Nintendo made the update available on March 25, 2009. In addition to the previously announced functionalty, it lets the player load Virtual Console and WiiWare games directly from the SD card. The update allows the use of SDHC cards, increasing the limit on SD card size from 2 GB to 32 GB."

It kind of pisses me off that they fake playing off the SD card by shuffling files around though..

(plus the Wii is so lame about these updates people totally missed them...)

Poll Results so far:

A) 1 Vote (fed up got a 360)

B) 3 Votes (fed up want a PS3)

C) 0 Votes (going back to PC)

D) 2 Votes (not fed up but will add PS3 or 360)

E) 7 Votes (I must own all things electronic!)

F) 4 Votes (I love my Wii!)

So "I must own all things electronic" wins with 7 votes! Imagine a thing like that on this site! And its biased as well because the poll is on the Wii page, but "I love my Wii!" comes in second with 4 votes...

Already have an Xbox..., with the new slim, the timing was perfect for replacement.

I would count yours as E then because you will have all 3 at that point... I guess I should have made that more clear... wait but you got rid of your Wii!

So you had a Wii and a 360, got rid of the Wii... and now want a PS3... You are one of the unaccounted for then...

I guess I'd say A or C. I own all 3 consoles plus a decent gaming PC. My PC and 360 get about equal amounts of time, and I turn on my PS3 whenever a good exclusive comes around. I don't think I've turned on my Wii for more than 5 min though since Mario Galaxy came out. At this point I'm considering selling it and putting the money into some PC upgrades.

sorry to say, the Wii isn't worth enough to juice up your pc.... Would you like me to list my Wii games to give you some ideas? I think between Club Nintendo and a hazy memory, I can think of them... Super Mario Galaxy is in my top 3 though... did you hear they are coming out with a direct sequel to that game?

Also, they're coming out with a new 2D Super Mario Bros. game just like New Super Mario Bros. DS, except you can local play with 4 people simultaneously!! There will be new Mario suits/powerups and competitive scoring and the ablility to pick up characters to do good or evil! I wouldn't give up on the Wii just yet...

I find it very curious and odd that all three consoles out this generation have a three or a "three" sound in their name. They just all blend together no problem:

Wii 360 PS3

Wii60

PS360

PSWii

and the big boy: PSWii60

just saying....

Actually, I remember seeing 3rd party peripherals called "gamestation" because the name was just close enough to confuse parents...
