Advice Please

Post by Funky Road on Sat Jan 15, 2011 11:08 pm

Okay here's the low-down:

I've gave it some thou.... no sketch that, A LOT of thought and consideration. I've talked with my cousin and frost about these.
For starters, my cousin stayed a few nights for christmas and stuff, but when we took him home, I went with him into his room, I asked a few things about the XBox 360. He told me some things that sounded interesting and really got me thinking. Well, I was thinking about it for a good while til I brought the subject about it to Frost. I knew Frost was a big Sony player and really likes PS3, so he told me a LOT about it that really got my attention too. So then, I went online youtube, and looked up a video to make my final decision on wether Xbox360 or PS3 would get me interested better.

So now I've finally decided that I am going to work towards getting a PS3 and hopefully a HDTV as well.

Now all the advice I need about PS3 is any additional information that I might need to know, please tell me anything that I need to watch out for as well. I already decided on some games I would want to get for the game console as the following states:
Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
Assassin's Creed
Resident Evil (idc which one but let me know about it if at all possible)
Little Big Planet (from what Frost tells me it looks like fun)
Future Guitar Hero/Rock Band games

My final question is any more addition information I might need to know, even things as to which I need to watch out for, and other Title Recommendations!

Much thanks to Frost for helping me make my final decision!

If you are using a HDTV, be sure to invest in a HDMI cord for your PS3. The HDMI cord will be the only cord you will need to connect your PS3 to your HDTV.

The HDMI cord connectors look like this:



Other than that, it looks like you're pretty much set to go.

Also, I have a list of games that may be of interest and that I've played before.

For fighting games, I'd recommend:

Tekken 6
The King of Fighters XII
Street Fighter IV
Soul Caliber IV
BlazBlue

For Mystery "point and click" type games I recommend:

Heavy Rain

I personally found Heavy rain to be quite enjoyable.

Action/adventure games you might want to check out:

inFAMOUS
Demon's Souls
Dead Rising 2
Fallout 3
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
3D Dot Game Hero - pretty much a legend of zelda ripoff but it has it's own unique qualities.

First person shooters:

Killzone 2
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Left 4 Dead 2

Third Person Shooters:

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - there is also a sequel to this game.
Metal Gear Solid 4
Bioshock

RPG/RTS games:

Valkyria Chronicles
Final Fantasy XIII
Dragon Age: Origins
Tales of Vesperia

There may be a lot more games I've just forgot to add to here, but I'll add them if I can think of them.

All I can say is, in bold and multicolored font...

DISGAEA 3

Aside from that: Resident Evil 5, Final Fantasy XXIII (If you're into RPGs), BlazBlue, and Little Big Planet...and that about sums up my recommendations.

And btw, Disgaea is an amazing tactical strategy series. It's like Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire Emblem, etc...only better.

RE5 is the only RE game for something other than Nintendo I think. Lol
Scratch that. Outbreak and 1 were for Sony (Outbreak was solely PS2, 1 was made for 1 and remade for the GC)
I enjoy FF, LBP is awesome, MGS is a must, and I'm too lazy to think of others. But look through other people's lists.

Well I'm now starting to actually try and make some more money, I already have a few things I can sell atm, and my friend said he might give me a gift card as my late b-day present so that helps out too!

What I might do is save up money for the HDTV and get the PS3 for Christmas or my next B-day which would be better being that my dad prolly won't get me one, I'll have to buy one my self xD

Yeah, which is why I looked up HDTVs online Walmart and Bestbuy and saw some pretty decent price ranges that I could probably get to soon enough at about.... 300-490$

Well Funk, if you do get a PS3 I strongly suggest getting CoD4. (The best CoD game the world has ever seen) Also if you do get CoD4 look out for those hackers at night. Sometimes when I try to play multiplayer I will stumble into a hacked lobby or something. Also if you are into the more "fun" games, get Toy Story 3! Heck, I'm 14 and I love that game!

Now if you are not into either of those games, get GTA4, or uh.... (xat HMM smiley here) some GH and RB games I guess. It would be fun if we could play GH6 or RB3 together (When I get a GH and/or RB guitar)

But other than all that I guess just follow some of BA's suggestions. Like LBP2 or inFamous. I heard BOTH of those games are ext- lemme rephrase that.... SUPER DUPER FANTASTICLY FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But ANYWAYS..... This has been Snipez..... and I am outta he-

Okay, as for the CoD suggestions, I already have decided that I might get 3 of that series: Modern Warfare I, World At War, and Black Ops

Toy Story 3, Maybe... just maybe, because I've loved Walt Disney and Pixar movies ever since I was a child. And I'm 15, and I still love CARS, Monsters Inc. Finding Nemo, Lion King, etc. lol Also Dreamworks Animation I like their movies too like Shrek.

if I get any GH or RB for PS3, I will probably just get a guitar kit. Or, just sell my Guitar Hero and Rock Band stuff for Wii, to invest in that for PS3 GH/RB Controllers.

GTA... no, i don't really care for those games....

But thanks for your suggestions!
