We will try to answer them to the best of our ability.
-- -- -- -- -- First in studio tonight is Jeff Bakalar he is a host of pre game he's a -- -- 40 for us from cnet.com -- -- Jeff thank you very.
Absolutely user last week with a with a and it all right our next to him Paul Miller you know -- -- He's here he is the senior associate editor from engadget dot comments -- that's right.

Socks and a little difficult.
We -- person between two football -- -- music that's.
-- metaphors there yeah yeah.
And to his left to marks left for the first -- -- -- -- Scott Stein from CNET also he is senior associate editor from CNET nice to see you thank you and your video game expertise so welcome to the show.
All right so let's dive and I guess of the -- by the way -- you check out that tells for smaller pregame because you guys on episode what 21 now.
-- Yeah last week was actually was a team how this week BUY twenty might patent numbers and there are richer and it doesn't matter.
Every week we like to demo a -- a whole week before it's store shelves.
Give people an idea what they expect.
And we round of the week's news and he means it varies sort of casual approach to someone hardcore industry.
We put it on the level for people forget in -- every Tuesday we we -- It deals to check out once the full video podcast or listen to -- If you tell the media it's on video while it it was -- it -- You can also listen to the two hour marathon that that you guys it over -- gadget for your podcasts yesterday.
At expert level -- one.
I'd make it through about Avery and gadget podcast.
It's like a marathon you know when you sort -- halfway through -- -- -- food.
Don't like I don't -- -- -- he's gone -- I just -- Hugo.
And is at one point when light either you or -- just it defeated.
The it just that now we just gotta wrap this up I think if I hear halfway through show we gotta wrap this up.
That I know yet another hour.
That's you Leo goes second place.
All -- That was good because these guys you guys have a lot of great to agree comments lot of expertise and check it out -- Are excited -- what we think.
Was the debate when it.
Last year when -- might Wolverine claws which just.
I'm last year I think clearly the winner was -- -- -- before.
And for the whole week that's all anyone was talking about.
And Nintendo really led us all down that polls being and then even later and intend to acknowledge acknowledge mr.
you -- -- you know it's it was a really disappointing.
A performance by -- We didn't really think that gamers.
Got weird time to do it was a dismal performance we need to come back next year Burris who was a winner this year.
I think it was -- I agree.
You know the they come out and they just they keep -- -- everybody wanted right away for a -- Zelda game Wii motion plus support.
If it when he eleven -- Padilla the -- talk about the news.
Yeah -- eleven one.
So they come you know all guns blazing and they perceive -- -- unveiled like for -- -- yeah gain after gain exclusive game.
They brought back donkey Kong country they've brought back a -- you Kirby adventure for the Wii which is you know what do -- for that.
I just think they had a really compelling -- And icing on the kitty everyone did expect this happened but they they -- this unbelievable portable 3-D gaming device the three yes and you know compared to the other two guys I think in -- the I was able to capture on the the most compelling argument.
Paul you are -- on the show floor one point about 3-D yes.
Looked incredible and I have blown away by I'm not sure I agree that Nintendo not the best president just because I feel like.
I think for certain sort of person and a Nintendo hit all the right buttons you know.
Tickled people's ears but for me as a gamer -- and it just doesn't really -- -- sort games.
That's excited about and I don't really.
You know every -- -- -- you get off into the platform but you know having multiple.
Just go back -- some -- properties obviously they still have a problem with graphics.
On the -- but the three yes -- easily as far as hardware stuff compared to move and connect from Microsoft.
3-D S was just so sure you know it was it's great product you can did it really quick you look at it the screen looks great and and they had a ton of games shall we.
And we're looking at now you know there's one of the things we can't.
You didn't really want -- to shoot any video right -- are very later all over us you know.
And it makes sense -- -- -- and -- these guys don't want you to.
You can't really tell obviously in his video how well it looks but when you're holding your hand right now right -- experience that is the problem.
For one anytime you shoot -- -- you're looking at these 20.
There's also just the fact that these hot girls were handing handing out the -- -- the whole time it's funny -- -- better you know basically look at the streets.
With and I think -- round of the hottest girls and LA to come out and hand these things down is that the Deal or No Deal -- And the centering the -- Finishing this.
The fact just LCDs.
That that's free for some reason in the way photographs of something just does not look half as good -- actually books and with -- -- it looks great.
-- I don't assume sceptical on how the book because they said it wasn't -- use glasses.
And then you would actually got to see it firsthand.
And -- it and.
Yeah that's a great point and Ryan in the chat -- says right now press knows how works but the consumers have no idea how looks and you're right and until.
It's gonna be interesting until people actually get their hands on it look at I said I -- it felt like Nintendo really hit a home run here on two levels number one.
There's no glasses but number two is it they sort of came on said you know what we're sort of redefining what we think perhaps of 3-D gaming and making it a personal.
Choice we're making it a personal gaming experience.
You know what hit it here five year old -- -- seven year old so they can play games it doesn't really matter what five people sitting on the couch.
Are concerned with 3-D image just one person with a game.
And they may have hit a home run with that idea sensitive worrying about.
You know are we gonna sell three pairs of glasses with our television in this unit of -- yourself five pairs each each pair of glasses cost -- 140 dollars.
DS is gonna retail.
200 dollars -- -- rough guess -- 3-D glasses.
Are -- fifty dollars yeah it's ridiculous and another home run for them is.
It sort of reinvigorate the hand there the DS line right yeah I think at a time that they really need to do that.
You know everyone has -- you know these iPhone games they're starting to.
Approached the level of where maybe I don't need to bring my ideas with -- -- that this compelling iPhone game -- -- iPhone doesn't do 3-D now so they sort of have that.
Though leg to stand on in terms of direct comparisons are just if it did reignite its there you know they're they're -- -- may also out of the gyroscope some bomber which is exactly what -- -- you actually probably see.
Some fairly similar in -- this work well -- or vice Versa.
It's got you figured -- I agree with you once you had -- sort of standard set with the gyroscope from -- for.
You maybe even -- a few weeks ago witches are we start to see now into the gaming platform gyroscope because they're hearing gyroscope and the chatter enables -- and -- it's the future well I mean I think that -- actually -- some element of motion I'm skeptical about the connect to move as far as.
Is everybody -- me -- on -- that in the future of controls I think if it's not as accurate as your basic controller.
You're probably gonna default to using the controller but.
I think that it -- seem like with the iPhone and the -- everything else incorporates emotion maybe they'll become part of -- -- -- Language that we start using India and then throws in their team at I was -- -- three yes.
And also for Nintendo how they.
Really kind of avoiding the casual gaming stuff that they've been -- on in the past like -- -- -- -- -- you.
I'm on the DS and -- -- right now they know they can't compete with the iPhone so the three -- as the analog pad.
And now you're playing all the N 64 games is appealing to more of like a console gamers.
Is it that -- learn their lesson from last year yeah ammonia that you just things that -- really tables talk more about that and the other big announcements that we take a quick break right here against him will be right back join the chat room.
Welcome back to gadgets games on this Friday jumping in the chat room you can follow us on Twitter is well on -- on Twitter.
-- -- your comments and concerns of people that's ever wanna know what rivers and her favorite games were that we solve this year.
And I -- right at the bat I was excited for the Nintendo three yes I've been waiting.
For decades seems now.
For kicker literally meant literally.
And -- is the eight bit version on the -- which was.
Next to natural and I want my favorite games of all time.
So when they announced an eighty.
And then the the marquee game for the 3-D S this kid -- -- uprising.
-- we have some video that check this out.
And it looks great in three and you know it's harder as little -- -- right now that you know.
Kind of fun.
It's hard to tell stuff.
Through it so I love the music to -- and put it.
I think I'm hoping hey you know these these are going back and some of that -- stuff.
But not mean this is what we can expect in terms of graphics.
You want -- what I like about.
Zelda is you know I like the side scrolling and then up and down its vertical scrolling.
This looks fun but I want some of that classic feeling.
-- -- I don't want there to be some JD level that's like the retro level that you fall -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and you know it's it's fun of -- sort of what I do find appealing about the -- Zelda games versus some of the new stuff is is that is that side scrolling appeal.
But what about people what was -- -- favorite games.
I think what.
The central -- -- I didn't actually.
Pretty horrible answer.
But Ross -- over editors we've got the video and dancing to it and and if you just like give yourself over to it -- I did.
You have that would be awesome view of it I really feel like -- is going to be the candidate we have some -- this is I -- -- this is the most embarrassing thing I've ever done willingly.
-- -- -- -- -- wanted to really awesome game for Microsoft connect the navy can't syndrome game I'm gonna dive into that I can actually do.
-- -- If that really made that -- I don't think that client dancing like that comes -- -- He was thinking -- on talent and excitement last.
And actually that well like why can't picture doing it like -- in you and your partner like by yourself.
01 June 5 so you never thought that they like you know what we gains slightly -- -- -- will take its place.
There are cousins when you over please leave now -- to put yeah I would I would play you -- -- to be -- -- in central -- only imagine because and so terrible -- this might -- the only -- ever learn how to dance yeah.
You know -- to Napoleon Dynamite in -- With just after -- shot the video he was there buffalo there was onstage and it's important that generic questions to their way -- -- -- -- -- -- That that was on Microsoft connect of course so.
Let's take a look at some of the demos stuff from Microsoft connect -- you can -- whatever you want but.
Some some questions about.
Oh yeah -- what -- what -- Star Wars this what got me totally jazz and you know except for starwood.
Course and a whole new level but when they also should go and also how you actually do -- -- right move or -- yet.
Is it just standing you know him yet easy target practice and as you move forward.
I'm afraid it's just like it's completely on rails it political you -- anything the lights it LC I don't know when -- civil services.
And so this is not actually endorsed Clinton herself is a lot real the apple but.
It doesn't -- again.
It's just not -- is interactive.
So what even happy with the Microsoft connect event which took place the night before that the press briefing.
They have a guy up on stage -- doing.
Holding his hands you know nothing in his hands and actually playing.
With the light -- Was that fake that you play overall pay all the ones for the night before at the press congress -- live demos.
All the stuff of the night before was all appreciated.
I think they're shooting themselves in the foot shown -- that because I think one of the people -- teaching them connect.
Is having that's.
You know field bulletin you know instant gratification feel of playing in action.
I mean I'll play shooting gallery light -- game like that put.
You're not entitled to actually com yeah it's it's just not going to be if you noticed none of the -- really involved more than.
You know there was more than one element involved in the fourth seeking the -- just the guy he's in his -- there was no sort of like.
Yes yeah something that they had mentioned earlier -- yeah they're like.
-- it'll take it'll pick up just you know your little.
You know foot move in the gas pedal and that was there.
Okay so one of the concerns I have with it and -- just -- should be upon Fox News -- shortly about this switches.
Standing versus -- one of the questions I had for folks at Microsoft when I was interviewing them ones.
-- -- -- -- -- We've -- can act right because every demo we saw.
Was standing you can control movies right -- stand -- that's a huge concern right on -- don't wanna play halo.
And yet that Microsoft so far.
I'm I'm a little display and connect I gotta say just because.
I think it's awesome for a brand new experience you've never done before I think there's going to be things like that.
The -- game against central just you could do this with any other -- -- could even conceivably.
But -- for -- for games they haven't shown anything and and there are implying.
That you'll be -- -- play that with the Xbox-360 controller and then I don't know maybe you -- looks of someone like that.
But boy they're not really doing a lot to augment.
Existing game types which is pretty much -- his whole thrust with movies is this is that.
That's what do yet Sallie their whole thrust even at the press conference from Sony they were given -- kept giving jabs at Microsoft the entire time about.
You know you can't just do you can't do everything with just stand there with you just you to what you need buttons you need controllers right and by that -- I think you absolutely need buttons than an I don't know how comfortable -- -- flailing my arms around.
And the other thing I felt was that it that is an external tied the game I was really disappointed.
That a lot of these games weren't made available for download I mean they never talked about cheaper downloadable games like this -- gonna connect to malls.
You know I might be interest in taking a fifteen dollar plunged into doing that -- -- I wanna buy a disk.
And then pop in the disk and play those and that they're missing out on the whole like cheap semi disposable idea of like you know I think people want to dress -- for.
-- books written and last tried gamely I don't exactly think all the -- -- showed off some of the past I think.
Microsoft -- -- -- not kill off.
Child you control what connect button which is like it's like psychedelic.
That -- aren't so that would have been amazingly a virtual aquariums are gonna using connect but again that's not exclusive content can be -- for PlayStation 3 sixty -- -- I just think that a lot of hype and -- probably would have been a smart just shown that on stage.
But some very.
It because some of these games having yet connect the bulls I think we have -- -- video of this is that a child friendly game again this girl standing the whole time what's that's like a modern thinking good pets yes.
And you have always like keep your eye pet from Sony they have -- all their versions of and it's also be like Wii Sports -- -- -- and obviously they're all sort of -- in the -- I think -- we have some -- that some assurance that.
Okay -- thought let's let's look at connects sports.
This is an example of you know standing up these games has to to Paul's point yes this is great where -- you've got -- you know.
Racing you want to stand up for that you wanna be doing you that you wanted to you know be be dancing and doing sort of a you know fencing or whatever else you gonna do.
But when you want that interaction more than just one or two inputs for the game you're gonna need to control -- And even bowling.
Which is that the the they -- there this running thing and and bowling for connects sports and -- you can't.
To flick your wrist over to yeah in the ball you have to do a big exaggerated -- -- through and I don't know how you that I -- horrible boy I'd made it over to a gutter and the lane over a -- It's that Minnesota or gain valuable experience don't let the thing is that guy I can bowl like not great but I didn't you know -- -- or believable and real life and yeah yeah translate well and.
A new and I've played.
That I could play -- -- the gulf Kensington John Daly -- do we get to play the Tiger Woods version of the golf for Sony moved.
And this is one of the things they showed off of the Sony move press conference.
Was this is Tiger Woods golf and I just say.
It's very precise and you know I've played often played it much lately but I know that if I open my club face up a little bit.
You know you know the balls to slice the ball in and often in the into the woods and so that's slight rotation of the hand it's so precise using that move controller -- it's almost too precise because you could -- nothing -- -- -- don't play games you know.
In the John -- version of it but this is where.
Microsoft's connect can't tell to Paul's point that slight rotation of your hand or anything like that -- do people care.
-- -- You care but if it's an add on to Xbox but the existing Xbox.
You know you're getting them right you've got your Xbox there from hardcore game.
You care so much about the slight movement for these other than other types of games or -- you -- because you're gonna want just the casual gaming experience you don't want just the the -- yoga and dance central.
Well I already have a.
Great that great casual gaming experience with tons of many games on on.
On the week you know I've got Wii Fit I've got Wii motion plus there's Wii Sports -- there's more of those games coming up those games are cheaper.
And I already have -- all the controllers forum and they were pretty well.
What I want from Sony and Microsoft is what they've been delivering to me already -- you know.
-- the hard core experience and and and I can't say enough financially I think Microsoft might be might win as if versus on new Microsoft is gonna have one thing that you buy you plug it and it -- and they've got a lot of casual many and that -- that that there.
Very much working on developing.
Wolf Sony is like you've got to by the -- -- and the move controller and maybe the navigation control learn and and if you want more people play have to buy more of them.
-- -- Soviet Union collapsed right.
It also -- in the chat -- is connected example just marketing hype.
-- I mean they sort of put themselves in their own category now because as far as I'm concerned move the -- move works it is.
It's sort of like a hybrid between connect in the week but it's more in terms of holding a controller.
But that got -- physical you know device in your hand I think.
There in the same category as we now in terms of you know that inner activity as far as Microsoft -- now it's sort of like you know.
This you know.
Green screen almost sort effect careers.
You know transporting yourself into thinking world with -- can.
It seemed like it seemed like Sony was trying to -- and succeed in some ways of saying that the move wasn't too far off.
From their gaming style in general they were showing ways you can use it in in playstations Williams and kind of -- -- on Microsoft is that.
You -- got -- shooters you're gears of war you've got halo reach and then you go all the way over to like the Wii style now and in the middle I was really missing.
83 more of the like Al wake -- games like.
If there were interesting story games that weren't you shooters I felt like Microsoft had tons of shooters may emphasize that with called.
And in where was the rest of it and then they switch over him like here's our our we type thing which by the way.
-- hundred -- only -- -- less than a week or 399.
For a package.
Which is far more than a week so I think -- -- -- there's another price pressure put on a they -- that's estimated but you know if it is that if it is whatever it might be.
That package for the -- be more than a week I think it's a hard thing to sell.
A majority of the 360 M wanna start casualty.
That's totally right become the first thing he said the -- black cops they they say aren't black ops gears of war.
Read the -- for those are three shooters are I mean yeah Americans love shooters -- we.
And Microsoft doesn't -- -- me and me or writing that hard -- -- like you said you need to.
I was hoping for that the more compelling.
Narrative you know story driven narrative.
Is -- we hear that -- Lasting three which was you could bring in any of your own devices ready to hold appeared -- all of your skateboard and enacted that seem skateboard goes into Tony Hawk whatever you know.
The this environment whatever I did you have so presumably you can go your dad's gun closet.
Pentagon out -- you want to hold up it scans it and and that's the gun that I get for black ops and I particularly you're educating children -- do this right now.
Kids go to your dad's got.
Let's see what you -- -- don't need.
-- gonna have you through it feel like I've seen in a lot of guys feel like I was wrong and that there's a lot of shooters and done peripherals and like and Sony began with with you know with with until zone three and others had.
It's like shooting or you're having fun -- sports.
It was no Microsoft can't cover all the bases and want connect and and yes move to attract new gamers and the -- -- question -- Yes for its deepest classic yet while there was some and Stephen from Camp Springs -- -- is the only -- -- was interesting -- -- -- -- yeah.
That area and that -- -- that looked like a great use of the of the technology right it was in gimmicky was.
You know with one hand you could like use the want to do indeed different things and you also navigating within on chip controllers are navigating through plus a graphic -- -- -- really really well done it was really thought it was -- -- it from one game they were already.
Light years ahead of anything you'll probably see on that we.
In terms of graphics and just that sort of satisfying.
Control response and the non -- part of it was just effectiveness and steep yeah assured him.
And it was -- which was cool I mean isn't one of the few games there wasn't a sequel or another franchise in Hollywood now.
Right -- curtains -- -- looked exactly like this year olds yeah yeah.
That word plot in the -- is problem with the gun thing is it's bad to to fire.
Dry fire a gun yeah I mean it's also interesting -- yeah.
That's should be named for a game -- Australia I had to put the etc.
You know the problem is to mean.
It was with recognizing some of the body sort of subtle movements I don't know that you're going to be able to do compelling -- and you know -- -- just -- look at the finger.
Yet -- -- it certainly connected and yeah that's that's all the demo videos that show that you guys.
Crouching down you know meaning -- -- yet that was -- on the demo right Microsoft has said you're still gonna use your 364 Republican view and a -- and they might -- it somehow connect but that's what they're saying.
-- and it's clear that's you have to you can keep it cannot that the detectives still a little bit -- -- before so okay force of one of the driving -- -- games I think we have some video of that -- if you -- -- and drive -- fours and you know it's incredible.
It's beautifully done.
But the problem is again you're standing for the demo and all -- the force of five demos you had to stand to drive and even in the demo videos we are seeing from Microsoft early on.
They were sitting you're sitting on a couch.
And you know you were flicking your foot a little bit he had to parents like -- smiling next -- who likes the circling back and forth.
I asked what -- Microsoft.
What do Microsoft spokesperson says that you know was going as -- lower Reno while we're not ready to really talk with -- but we're still calibrate.
We're still calibrated so that it -- great and that's okay it's it's fall here fall release time but we're getting close.
Get where we're gonna close it like you said that -- is sitting on there.
I was -- I was in a room with them a bunch of people and we were just you're doing -- real simple -- just controlling the the new there's a new Xbox -- -- dashboard menu for connect feel like wave.
And then you log into that and then you're controlling this with your hand and and also speaking.
But they were like.
There's spoke to many of us in the room when -- not that many things either.
And just because people if it's another person is on the same plane in his view.
So -- if you're right here and I'm playing game it's picking up what he's.
Do it also buy into the frame and keep that shot on their camp where we're all by -- frame and put my hand like right now the game -- I just -- through so yeah it's it's recognizing this hand which is a problem.
We were setting up to to a live -- for FOX & Friends and I had you know it was like Switzerland actually Sony was very kind hostess at their -- -- -- showing off so com for.
On Sony PlayStation move ahead Nintendo at three yes in my hand showing them off and then right next in my hand.
Dance central showing up Microsoft connect so Sony was like Switzerland.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If somebody from for B 31 the people who ran -- -- music first first time in history that's ever happened.
That's pretty cool.
But anyway we're sitting at the Indian central thing we have some issues because -- cameras were blocking we're walking out and get steps set up as a -- -- -- into the frame a little bit.
They go back that shot the four.
You know I've come back -- and the other V cameraman in his elbow in the shot and it would pick up this and they have to start over me so yeah whatever is in that frame is is the problem.
It's not insurmountable.
Of an issue but again and I I think it's it's.
It is in because it is new technology is exciting brand new very different and that's cool in some ways but -- also.
Pose a lot of call -- writes in the chat room and guys through.
I wanna play GT five and 3-D -- gonna happen.
In three weeks it's gonna be available treaty but other -- -- life that new 3-D TV now because but if any investment as well.
Yeah sort of fire Panasonic.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- In the weight on Microsoft connect until I tried it seems too good to be true and also was not happy with the pricing of those games.
They can enhance it's priced in dollars is gonna be a price point permanently connected it's I want to thank you pay attention you know for right.
For basically the -- Xbox version of Nintendo's.
I'm not trying to pay sixty dollars in different color boxes I thought it was like total selling and thousands -- -- new system it's a little and understand separating them but it's a little confusing -- you guys see.
I I I just I have this fear of just.
The we happening all over again.
Our connect cells like gangbusters obviously there's the content there's a huge install -- to sell to and so -- vision you know everybody buys one game.
And you play it for week -- -- bored of it.
Do you buy that though because this -- -- -- you're referring to the ones I think we all sort of you know believe which is that people buy that we in the by a few games and they play in -- will be I don't know the -- that's -- the -- right but.
When we know and attend on stage.
Seem to be sick you they boast about -- they boasted about plates have what do they say they sit you know there's all this myth out there about how.
People are buying a Wii and then they're not playing but we know better this has more people -- -- there's more -- games sold than any other I think -- also including those two reports this for the people playing them for longer or something along those lines and -- marine me was all the concentration in the chat room right now and which we would withdraw the question multi.
We -- -- polish are now switching system would you rather buy based on what you know Sony move its 69%.
Microsoft connected 31% -- used to taking that leap of faith that.
No controller may be not but it would have trouble poll on the in the chat -- right now.
If you have a Nintendo we see how often you play you play regularly is -- a game system you come back to.
That we can get that -- there will see what people have to say about it -- Probably -- is just yet you -- you're flailing hands and space there's no feedback so if you're playing forcing you're driving -- you drive up against the wall.
-- -- -- -- -- You know -- I don't know when president -- you just sentencing that what you're doing on screen is being picked up.
And it's translating via US Phillips so much and it would have been solved if I really wants them in like a like a -- wearable little things -- and -- It's got into buttons he compress and would vibrate.
In the like one NHL -- -- you had always do you have one my Philadelphia Phillies security -- -- just -- you would return to get there together I don't know what that could have a capsule.
I think Sony's very they sort of anticipated.
-- -- about this you know honeymoon period that we might happen with connecting with you know having motion control -- gone.
I think by -- -- and I it will we're gonna offer support and pre existing games.
They will launch games devoted to move but these -- -- forty dollars -- I think they sort of future proof themselves and saying well you know we're not gonna make this its own sort of entity as much as connect.
It's pretty much by itself.
You know separate.
That's the I worry a little about the move because I think about the PlayStation night and how often I use it which is never you know and I and I -- there a couple interactive things -- put it away.
The funny thing about the move that I feel like.
People don't see -- think about it.
Is that you need the camera and -- seems like it's just gonna be that one but also played in the camera and homeless people as other cameras plugged -- I feel like.
He might be one thing too many so if you -- like.
I'm on the plane simply kill zone with the move controller wait where's the camera out of -- the regular controllable thing I'm worried that will be the case -- I don't want them being just like that we -- -- is -- -- -- this and he -- the camera their own time not exits and names don't exactly it's not it's my it's been making it up there and honestly and then as.
Are but I planned to keep in camera there.
You forget about it would make it.
Poland the in the chat room right now thanks forget -- up.
It flashes back and forth.
How often do you play your Nintendo Wii and the polls so far seven the 75%.
0% every day so some people playing it weekly hardly ever though is is is the number coming from the chat -- right now.
-- might -- -- that might yesterday that you.
Match but I don't against the Steelers have guilt about certain game plan for -- certain guilt -- games' in economics are again likely what I gave dean guilt because I don't play enough I really -- You if you walk from my heart related almost it's very small amount I'm not avoiding I'm wishing that leaderboard I would feel less badly books and your bookshelf but yes you read his -- he's one of those I you know.
Did this did the exact same caveat -- -- -- in -- my house there's a big book.
Shelf of books I have a red.
And there is a big yet how much larger -- -- wonderful view of them played and I caught yup usually both of them yeah if you don't have a Reynolds.
And I got some for Christmas -- still haven't opened yet I still heavily ghostbusters that I wanted you know like and start -- on -- with packaging on it for for the B.
-- -- -- -- -- And an -- that was from the ground not the way in after I -- even -- -- it's not his cinematic is the the Xbox version but I wanted to play -- I -- to to have that response and actually pretend like I had my -- of proton -- -- you know became threatening come out and he's been here.
Yeah in this -- yeah -- about six months like.
No wait that's six months that you just finish and I want my favorite games are played years is that -- in Markham silence such equipment halfway -- -- right -- -- -- Maybe three more weeks ago and he finished it -- in two days you leave the house so we can pretty much it was a great you're answer edit photos online.
Months ago Jeff and all the other guys -- -- McCain wasn't.
I was like whatever on intimately because I don't like buying and I think pageant this -- -- -- -- -- and -- -- he's like it's forgotten about it.
There's a new -- coming out -- it will what do they literally a sequel I don't know anything about.
Dave but apparently mark Camel's back is that you hear this.
This doesn't resolve I'm Becky try to -- listen for him as the joker like to hear the Mark Campbell voices can't.
Now as he did it Nevada and the animated series do which is great.
See Steve wants to know -- -- Stevie -- music P.
c.s PC gamer is that we that he uses for light fun.
Operates a quick break here commercial break go to the chat room and get -- -- -- -- -- wrap that up here at the end of the show will be right back.
Welcome back to gadgets games I think -- I mean -- I certainly felt like a Nintendo had the biggest home run.
Of the week with the announcement of incentive three BS thoughtful -- really polished device and so the question we were asking just we in general how often you play this motion control gaming in the chat room.
How often you play 71% say hardly ever.
With another couple of in the twenties percentage of thing -- a little bit so.
We'll check that at the end of the show.
Some of -- games one and talk about the responded big announcements at which is that you keynote video gaming going because it feels to me.
Your point either you have like the Wii style games where you have these hardcore shooters.
And there's a lot of room for like the -- weeks.
Type games are now lot of room for epic -- yeah oh it's that one sort of one sort of -- -- and.
It's about it but I think the people that are hardcore gamers are going to give them a chance.
But are there any link but how -- sequels when you see yeah that's big for would probably a lot of originality yeah.
That's how big problem.
How well that heavy -- do you have no I don't know how well it did it was you know I personally really situations with.
-- will -- Vietnam.
That that there is this issue I feel like and I almost feel bad for game sometimes because if you are.
Call of duty -- halo and you don't have the ability to say you're going to be playing this for the next.
Nine months with everybody you know.
Like you do is -- -- factor and indifference of how many units you.
There was -- two story this week if he came after.
-- -- -- -- -- -- They want -- -- -- stone -- and drop the system is still playing turning down someone says totally agree Pedro and Terrence is totally agree about video game -- still trying to finish call of duty to.
-- status bases -- dragon -- 380.
And world knows that nuclear 3-D -- -- this did space to.
Yeah yeah thoughts on -- space to -- -- in the evening.
Yeah -- -- -- -- that's a simple and look for that yeah yeah I mean you know we sort of make fun of sequel yet but that's a game that definitely.
Certainly deserves another and it's -- pretty soon.
-- You know routinely year -- -- -- -- like all right you know I get it.
Something like this case it it brought a new it's sort of level third person action -- and and getting a really good hard game.
Hasn't been a lot of scary stuff yeah and just.
The -- the thinking use the gravity effects and stuff like that.
I think they have a really strong.
Others and it's very -- space extraction which -- for the Wii which I think is very underrated.
Real shooter but it's an on real issues it's not.
Exactly my favorite type of game.
It definitely added and -- -- story became so incensed and sent them with.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Good downloadable games downloadable games as her way to go a little more -- -- a shadow complex which -- lending groups they sort of had a little more of a renegade feel.
And they were really talked about this time.
And all at least in the main precedence.
Maybe they were on the -- on the show floor but it sort of some -- like we're watching in Hollywood -- watching like of the show west of like the big studios showing their big giants and big summer movies -- But the indie film part of gaming which is where a lot of fun stuff is going time.
Got pushed away and it was basically like motion games.
And nothing else and -- it may -- that doesn't think the four runs and when money is but I was surprised how little usually every they have like a moment where that's kind of showcase the show little.
And we talked about something.
PlayStation network and Xbox Live show -- -- there -- there.
Exclusive -- -- downloadable games.
I don't know I'm really interested little big planet to you -- who is trying to make basically its own.
Community of play.
User you know user generated content and it's it opened the -- -- you can make a lot of they see Eumig -- as -- top shooter you could make you know it looks beautiful much more complicated and a pop for me.
So that's that's just -- I definitely grew up -- and I really still for for Scott pilgrim but well yeah what.
What what's the one of losing one of the companies say yeah right look they wanna be able to say they have some exclusive -- -- But you know that's that's gotta be a fan favorite show that off so people -- And in movies you see there's indie films become hits you think that they would -- I would approach of like.
You gotta make a movie like kickass once in awhile that's gonna be a little differently because it was an issue so well which is though the amount of money it takes to do this again is so much money in that time an -- -- making development time you can't afford to have.
A -- You know you can't afford to have a bombing in the video game world because you know.
It just won't show up anywhere it's gonna -- -- you you might hate to get lucky get a letter which once in awhile.
So hopefully the downloadable stuff cancers that like ideally -- was it was meant to be -- even like portals kind of an experiment you know food and and the first and it was like you know with Lincoln and the like a student team in and and then you gets -- -- can be successful becomes a franchise was speaking to go -- what Paul is saying about you feel sort of badly.
Bad for a game that's not.
That you can't come out and say hey you you're gonna be planes for the next nine months with a bunch of people either you have that you don't.
And I think it was interesting to see assassin's creed this year -- in that direction assassin's creed brotherhood.
We have tentatively we have some video that rules so this services.
Part of -- period -- a little bit this widget thing.
I don't want to talk about I don't think -- it.
Make fun with that we've just do not like -- that.
Yeah dominant minority and that I just I had the problems everybody else -- -- the first thing that made him and I'd.
This out exactly what I actually you know.
I animals animals more multiplayer gamer.
And and the the idea of of I love the way you move around this universe so beat them do that against other people -- -- them it's of the brotherhood concept tickets through that because it's like what five other people.
Fighters character types yes that you you basically can recruit other assassins and who which you considered not missions.
But you can also call in on your -- so you raise your fist.
And they'll like swoop in and then threw a smoke grenades or created -- and our were killed want to do for you.
We also died.
It's yet to be careful.
Does polygamy and in the graphic and -- can.
They're incredible yeah it's like if it is is assassin's creed or crisis the best looking hard.
So what you what -- you like this -- Christiane here's.
You know out of your job and people should -- just there's something about assassin's creed that it didn't like me the first one that such an impression that I.
You jumble that -- with this excellent but it isn't -- success and I couldn't get into it.
Where I want to be hiding on and does.
I just I don't mind -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think some of the controls are frustrating.
I don't know if this line.
Twisted metal was so close -- battle again multi multiplayer experience.
Model versus cap com.
That was pretty exciting to play that a -- -- -- -- there's.
The graphics are incredible it just the stuff that just the -- -- -- you know comic book into isn't just the cool tweaked some things that they did with.
But Iron Man hauled -- in hopes of boring character himself but.
Haven't applicant -- polls that shoots out pretty cool feeling that -- -- -- -- care and characters outside the trailer.
And yeah it was pretty cool people clamoring for that as well there also some weird little -- mean this is sort of the independent.
Movie thing we're talking about.
But like the literally grade wrestling.
Games to get to play a little bit in the nation came in yelling at him -- -- true that it wont -- -- it's made solution doors in your house yet villagers economy houses really serial.
On the yet and it's and it's I had known at the time and it was like a real you know effort from from Mexico to make.
To make head and -- national an allusion to -- And that's cool that they did that has a very you have -- from the -- and you'll notice my.
Poster showed him my best friend Mike and -- his that your car -- -- -- -- I was sending him photos of from some solution or to a there in the past via.
-- had a great compelling characters are missing and even know that have these words and 5% of these people there's a mixed martial arts.
I think from Iain -- The MMA game mixed martial arts game WW the game as well but speaking of trailers I believe I can we have the trailer for or.
Isn't right to say that halo is one of the most anticipated.
Franchises every time you you can always get a rise of the crowd when you run a trailer from them -- run you show off some of the team play.
Did it feel like.
And it is exciting it's losing some that are shown up most of Warren.
Extra -- -- split it up -- it's like last year with odious T.
It began his or become like there'll be a lot of -- -- unions like managing yeah sure I'm sure they'll be making marginal.
Yeah I'm improvements that's -- next year's -- though you know you can't deny.
There there loyalties.
And -- fan base is so die -- so -- well with these games that.
You know there's.
You know you're only one -- like right exactly.
Covered a lot of -- that much -- it and -- want him well.
So let's roll this part of his trailer and we need to all -- just get a sense of the -- will come back here he will reach.
What's different about this -- other than having you better graft -- but that having.
You features like you can actually fuel and jet pack and in the news.
Pardon me but aren't you yeah yeah landscapes of the lovely and illnesses -- more -- an epic landscapes -- have to compare them.
So odious -- silly crap these so.
Yeah when you -- -- on do you think there on different generations.
I'm just and I also just -- and -- burned out the issues I just feel like anytime a guy and and a weapon in the polls lasted just I don't know speaking.
News delays are about to shoot.
Exciting thing for the Microsoft -- was metal -- -- rising out.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It does against an at least they -- and I mean.
I get a say and not always.
I don't always finish my Metal Gear Solid -- but yeah I feel like it's cool if they always goes -- -- different I mean this is very different game can't figure -- this.
Some of the other -- -- kill zone kill zone.
Look real critical eye could see the benefit of -- certainly some of the canyons stuff and some -- community perspective stuff.
A lot of push on the 3-D gaining.
Wolf the -- is.
It's -- all -- looked amazing in the presser.
Of them -- actually Saddam played it it was really Jack -- like.
It is they were using a really low resolution Pollock forty.
Do play a higher resolution but basically.
-- have a game that already runs at a really high resolution high permanently ground grand for his Mo or wipe out.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- The harder it Hamlet but give them a game like kill zone which -- runs at 720.
Cut that revulsion and that's when you start -- really notice on HDTV the jagged edges and stuff like that looks as.
Yeah I was out of this wanna but I do think three is a great -- that's.
I think Sony's you know they're they're obviously pushing this -- stuff they -- -- by -- -- -- PlayStation 3 to go with that.
I I think.
You know a lot of people thought that they pushed Blu-ray a little too early.
I think -- whether or not that was the case.
They're definitely pushing in my opinion he'd be way too early because no one has three inches it's that we and our CNET office we have.
-- that's -- -- -- -- a three yes as a real smart move Nintendo it makes it a personal experience you know hand that kid.
He indicated that think this is not just isn't just games it's the kids sit and -- and how to train your dragon treaties at home right.
That's under an understated fact that that thing being played pool you know Hollywood movies yeah in 3-D.
You know now I don't need to get that you know car accessory you guys are -- to the -- -- that's exactly -- -- fight over the one device in the car ever ever let them leave the room.
I have ever have to leave the cameras need to -- against some the one thing that an iPhone.
And -- partnership.
Daniel -- if -- should should be that it will reach footage and didn't tell me which -- -- would never known the difference exactly that that's you bring up is it's like.
He looks to me is becoming like the law and order.
Yes yes please share your absolutely -- -- We'll round -- our our polls here -- you purchase and -- of three yes maybe 44% yes 0%.
And no 44%.
Which you system would you rather buy based on what you know you've said Sony moved 75%.
Microsoft connect 25%.
If you will we how often do you play -- weekly 29%.
Hardly ever 71%.
Every day zero style.
-- -- I was surprised -- Sony moved Sony did do well I mean Sony really surprisingly when played with Sony moved few months ago.
Really impressed with it and you know still some things I'm curious about but actually I think -- -- boxing -- -- -- -- to show that real -- -- I could -- thirty seconds.
Using the Sony move and actually some the boxing I -- it to be a little.
-- is -- -- that.
-- -- so some of the Sony box using both the -- controllers and I love the idea tonight you know.
Did martial arts you -- I love the idea of doing that but it felt like a little.
You know little precisely -- just the Sony fight game I would punch you know to upper cut really wouldn't.
Or be accurate or whatever they can and dollars making fun of that the the hole of hole punching style in other games it.
I think Sony was the only one that -- -- compelling argument of saying that motion can be used for hardcore games via harbor gamers this can work with you no one else and -- I was.
