      Long Entry, but worth the read.

      So before today, I thought "Maybe PS3 will pull through and beat Xbox 360, I mean PS3 will have any Kingdom Hearts sequels that would come out." Today I hear that Xbox 360 also has part of the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts franchise, so that means if I got a 360, I wouldn't have to wait a long time for the PS3 to come out, I could just wait till 360's come in stock easy. But then I hear the talk about this "all amazing" chip that PS3 is going to come out with that will be the most realistic thing yet, I will just assume that is the blu-ray thing, which by the way will cost PS3 about $350 per console. Think of how much the PS3 will be when it finally comes out. Sure Sony wants to make a profit, but they also want people to actually own the system. The Neo-Geo came out and was way before it's time and cost about $649 when it launched, nobody wanted it because of that price. So will the PS3 be the next Neo-Geo?

      Sure I love the Twisted Metal game series, which I’ll assume has it's balls grasped by sony, seeing that the rest were only released on Sony consoles. Sure, I’d love to see the most realistic Twisted Metal game possibly, but I’ve survived not playing the PSP Twisted Metal: Head On. It is not worth the wait, and the money just to play the next Twisted Metal game on the PS3.

      Another reason I have definitely decided I will buy an Xbox 360. No, it's not because of Halo 3, not because of one of the greatest online gaming services, but it is because the Xbox 360 will make all of the Dreamcast games downloadable off Xbox Live Market or whatever they have for that sort of thing. Here I am, sitting in a room with two Dreamcast systems, five Dreamcast controllers, two vmu's, two keyboards, one light gun, one arcade board, and sitting here with 25+ games, wanting and waiting for the only two stores I know of that carry Dreamcast games to get a broadband adapter (Which they won't take back as trade in), Sonic Adventure 2 (If you read my earlier journal, you can tell that I bought a copy and it had the blockbuster sticker on which I attempted to take off, causing the CD not the play the intro music to the game), and Powerstone 1 and Powerstone 2. I’m positive there are more games out there, but this news is amazing. Doubt it will be successful will certain Dreamcast games, such as House of the Dead 2, because it is used in full potential if a light gun is in use, Typing of the Dead, where a keyboard is used, and all the fighting games on there (Which probably won't be a problem with the Dead or Alive 4 arcade stick that came out). Don't care what the price is, positive it will be lower than what I buy at the stores right now, and will possibly cause a drop in the price at those stores because of competition (If not taken out permanately. Please don't).

      Up next is Nintendo. Nintendo has always been off to the side, kind of in the shadows watching as Microsoft and Sony battle it out. PS2 and Xbox get launched, popular with the mature audience, while Nintendo still entertains children and even us older people who are kids at heart. So yeah with the Gamecube, people say how Nintendo is "too kiddie", I am sure the Nintendo Revolution will try and fix some of that. Sure the majority will still be kids games, they are still getting out of the Gamecube style games. With the new Revolution controller, Bill Gates, and even the guy that made up Halo are interested in what Nintendo has to bring to the table. With the new controller, First person Shooter games won't be the same (In a good way). Personally, it looks to me like since Nintendo is trying to take the what I like to call, the "Sega" approach and try something new and innovative, revolutionary if you will. Why I call it the Sega approach is because Sega has done MANY "firsts" in the gaming industry. To help me with what I’m trying to say about Sega, check out this link http://segafailuresaves.ytmnd.com .This website contains a list of many firsts done in the gaming industry. But yes, why Nintendo is trying this is because to me Nintendo feels like since it's not in the big competition between Microsoft and Sony, while they go off trying to make the most realistic video game possibly, Nintendo focuses on the MOST important part of video games, the game play and the way to play the games. With the new controller, there will be many add-ons for this controller to help make certain games more enjoyable, not to mention the ability to download all of the old Nintendo games.

      In conclusion, why wait for the PS3, when NO news about price and release date has been released when you can get a Xbox 360 (If you can get your hands on one, which should be very soon I might add) and already get your next generation and Dreamcast (Get's my all giddy) gaming on, and then later get a Nintendo Revolution for your Link, Mario, and Metroid fix. For me Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Revolution will definitely be my two choices. Being that Mortal Kombat sequels will be available on the 360 as well as future Sonic games, all the Dreamcast games, and all of my favorite Nintendo characters will be on the Revolution.

      Why get a PS3? Can you not get enough Grand Theft Auto styled games?

      To have EVERY Mortal Kombat character ever! This will be for the PS2 and the XBOX. You can thank me, partially for this Mortal Kombat. Yes I said it, thank me.

      This screen shot was taken at Fight Night, for the game Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. Here is the part where we got to ask questions about future Mortal Kombat games. As you can see, I pitched this idea.

      squestion8dx.png
      Several months later comes the preview of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, set to have all of the Mortal Kombat Characters.

      I love to say I told you so.

      The only thing that pisses me off is the create a fighter option. Midway finally gave in to all the fags whining about it. This isn't a fucking WWE video game, it's Mortal Kombat.

      This is the happiest Friday the 13th EVER!

      Recently bought Kingdom Hearts, The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogies Revenge, and The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Pumpkin King. Kingdom Hearts is good so far, only thing with this game is that I keep getting stuck in parts. The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogies Revenge has been good as well. Only bad part about this game is that the cameras are fixed and sometimes you cannot see certain enemies. It also gets annoying hearing Jack shout "Soul Robber" when he attacks. Now The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Pumpkin King would be perfect, pause, for the Super Nintendo. Yes this game looks like it was ported from the SNES. You know it must be old when you hear a "Boing" when you jump. Pretty much has been a cliche platformer. They didn't even attempt at 3D. I would have loved to see that on the Nintendo DS or something.

      Tomorrow I plan on finding Dead or Alive 4 with my friend Jeff. Since Gamestop is sold out of them and I don't know when we get new shipments in. Speaking of Gamestop, my job has been weird lately. It's all been chaos after one person gets fired. Everyones saying they want to quit. People don't show up for work. This means that my manager has to call in people. Practically throwing out the schedule. Right now the schedule says i'm off for five days, let's see how that goes.

      Edit 1/2/06:
      Bought Dead or Alive 4 today. Me and Jeff beat story mode with every character in about a 4 hour span. Unlocked the character Spartan-458. I am hoping this character has costumes other than just recolors. I have gotten pretty good at this game in such a short time. I guess it is the same way with every game really, you just have to get the hang of it, such as Dance Dance Revolution. Now to wait for Dead Rising.
