    what. the. ****.

    what is going on? who the **** are these people? when will ****ing japanese game designers learn that they need to re-write the english dialogue because the translations sound idiotic?

    i'm still playing because, as here, all indications are that the game gets much better later, but it's really hard to care about what's happening and not just button mash through the cutscenes so i can get back to sprinting past bad guys who i don't want to fight because the fights are, to this point, an exercise in hitting x three times in a row until everyone is dead. i've used one potion because the stupid tutorial forced me to.

    bleh. i know it gets better. but i needed to vent my frustration.
    Stay the course man. Trust me. :-)

      GOW3 is actually pretty long for an action-adventure game. 10-11 hours.
      I know it'll be months, but I don't mind waiting.

      Heh, I didn't realize Clash of the Titans was already out. I might be buying GOW3 sooner than I think.

      • So I am replaying God of War collection and I had forgotten how hard it is to put the controller down.

          Yep. And their graphics really aren't too bad on the PS3. It's easy to sit down and play for a bit and then realize oh crap its 4am.

            [/angry, pointless rant]

            on the plus side, this has shown me how ridiculously easy it is to replace the HDD, so maybe i'll stuff in a 1tb at some point (once i figure out how to hack a back-up plan).
            So you didnt even get to play Heavy Rain?

            Thanks BoneKrusher^

            • My PS3 and God of War 3 should be arriving from Amazon today. Woohoo! First time I've owned a video game console since XBox. Not a huge gamer, but I needed a new DVD player and thought GoW3 looked amazing soo...made the impromptu purchase on Amazon. Super excited.

                Have you played the first 2?

                • haha. Me being me, the thing would still be broken and I'd be on here ranting.

                  So what's this mean exactly? No Heavy Rain for njx at all? Because that would suck. As soon as I tackle the Orange Box, I'm going to give Heavy Rain another go around and just mess around with my decisions.

                  Thanks BoneKrusher^

                  • So, I've got videos that I'd like to play on my PS3 saved on a USB device. However, the PS3 isn't recognizing anything on the device. Do I have to put it in a specific format or am I doing something else wrong?

                      Hit triangle on your device and then display all or whatever the name is. I asked that question earlier and got that answer, saved me a bunch of time.

                      • yea Triangle is like an info button and gives you options.

                        • Yes, I think it's Triangle and then something to the effect of "Display all devices" and everything should pop up (assuming it's in the right format/place).

                          Took me a while to figure out why nothing was showing up when I first got my PS3 too haha.

                          • I used to do the USB drive thing but figured out how to share my Videos folder on my PC so now I just play everything over the network. It is awesome.

                              I could never stream from my computer onto my 360 or PS3 for some reason. It is for this reason that I thank the inventor of the HDMI cord, for creating a device that allows me to turn my laptop and TV into a multimedia superstation!

                                I could never get it to work on Windows XP, but since upgrading my PC (and getting Windows 7) it works great.

                                Your laptop setup sounds good too though. HDMI can be awesome.
