To be honest with you, I have no first hand experience of this, as I have an 80gb PS3 that can't play PS2 games, but I think there should be lists of compatibility on the internet which show the games that play well on certain PS3 models and those that don't.

I'm about to upgrade my computer, and I'm interested in getting one of those two games. I only have money for one, so I came to you guys. Which one should I get?

This is the best way to compare them:

Quote:
Empire:

+Massive, 3 Theater World (Although crippled by small # of provinces)
+Many different nations to choose from (Sharing the same bland, cookie cutter format albeit)
+Fire by Rank
+Open Ended Campaign

-AI (Campaign and Battle)
-Bugs (Half finished on release and I'm being kind)
-Same units for each army mostly
-Same ships for each navy
-Doesn't feel polished (Wonder why)

Napoleon:

+Better AI
+More army differentiation
+Attrition and Supply System
+More, smaller regions
+Better art design (completely subjective, but the 'portraits' in ETW were horrible)
+Physically larger campaign map
+Enhanced GFX engine

-Smaller scope
-Cost high for what is essentially a glorified expansion
-little, if any integration or enhancement with/for its parent game, ETW
-Only 4 nations to choose from in GC
-was developed and released during a time when CA should have been focusing all its energy on repairing and upgrading Empire
Hope this helps.

Just answer to the title. Wii or DS? If I were to vote it would be DS.

I would have to say the N64, too. I do like the visual updates that the DS brought, but...not so much on playing as 5 different characters.

N64.
Original FTW.

But overall N64 is the best for that game.

I have a question. I've recently seen Tales of Vesperia go cheap on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and I've seen reviews of the game and it looks like the game anyone should get. Does anyone have any first-hand experience and can tell me to get it at all?

The reviews say it all. I have played it with a friend when I was around his and it was a very fun game.

If you like games like that, very simple answer for you, if not, read more into the reviews and see!

Is there a such thing as a charger for my DS Lite that I can take on the go with me that doesn't have to plug into something (i.e. a car, wall outlet, etc.)? I have a charger I carry with me for my iPod that runs on AA batteries. Does such a thing exist for the DS Lite? So far I'm not having luck finding anything. Finally, is there something like this for the 3DS? Someday I'm sure I'll have to upgrade and when I do I'd want something to charge this while I'm out as well.

Hahaha, that's a funny sounding question. |D Ironically though, the answer is yes! There are several types of "Charge at home, then use to charge devices away from home" type deals, such as this one, which very directly shows that it has an adapter for the DSi, among other things. The DSi and 3DS actually have the exact same chargers. (They're literally interchangeable.) So anything that works with the DSi should work with the 3DS.

Have you tried running it on the lowest graphics settings? That should be the most obvious course of action if you're having video problems.

More specifically, though I'm best-guessing;
Try turning the option that goes "none, bloom, HDR" to none.
If there's an option for choosing the pixel shader, set that to 1.0 (might have to be done via the in-game console if anywhere).
Turn shadows off.
Turn reflections off (both windows and water).

Also, try looking around on forums for people who were/are having the same problem as you. Given the age of the game it's likely the issue has been discussed and resolved someplace.


If you haven't already then I recommend getting this, the 'Unofficial Oblivion Patch' as an aside. Don't expect it'll fix the problem you're having, but it stops a lot of quests becoming broken and suchlike occurances. Things Bethesda should've fixed themselves but never did.

Wow, are they typically that expensive? (thanks for the link btw)

Will it also work with the DS Lite?

EDIT: What about something like this?

Just said as an aside, not so much to do with your problem, but a general recommendation which could on the off chance make the problem go away. Doubt that, but thought I'd mention it.

Looking about I'm not sure one can, but to open the console press the key to the left of 1, could be `, could be ~, or something else, depends on your keyboard. That opens the console.
Type bAllow30Shaders=0
That doesn't set the shader model to 1.0, I'm not sure if anything really does, it just disallows 3.0 (Oblivion normally runs on 2.0, apparently), and it should be set to 0 by default anyway.

Failing everything else, if you've got a kind of computer you can open the case and change parts of, you could simply upgrade the video card without buying a whole new system.


Sorry I'm not much of a help but I thought better than to say nothing.

Is there a way to send messages via DS systems to people a great distance away? I know the PictoChat allows message exchange, but I'm under the impression the senders have to be within a very short distance from each. What if I wanted to chat with someone in another city in my state? What about in another country? I would think if Nintendo fixed it so Pokemon Black and White players can battle people across the world on Wi-Fi, we could also chit-chat with people. Is this possible, and if so, how?

I usually use that to tell whether my computer will run something. It's never failed me yet, but I guess your mileage will vary. You just have to install something which I'm... pretty sure is quite harmless. It reads your specs and then you can use the site to tell what'll be compatible and whether it's bare minimum or recommended settings.

I just got online to play Smash Bros Brawl, and the Spectator Mode and the Options were gone. I figured a lot of people play Brawl, so I thought PC would be a good place to ask.
Is Spectator Mode and Options gone for anyone else, or is it just me?
