I own a ps2 as it has all the games i enjoy on it as well as being a dvd player and i also use it to record my mini discs (digi optical output). I like the fact its versatile. But I am also saving for a GC as it has some great games and I will be able to have  better multi player gaming sessions which I lack with the ps2. But will not get an xbox as I dislike the size and the games, and belive I am much better off with my pc.
I think I will get Futurama on the ps2 though, as Ican wait for a preowned copy to become available then trade some old ps2 games and a little cash for it. Its the cheapskates way of getting all the great games without paying out a radiculas 40 a game.  smile

I dunno if the new lara croft is gonna be real good.  After all it was supposed to come out (how much time has it been) awhile ago.  I heard that the demo copies had problems with control scheme too.  Although it did look sweet. 

As far as the console wars, I'll have to say that yeah it's the games, but to say that PS2 has all the best games, that's crap as you've pointed out SSB:Melee is awsome on GC and that's been out for awhile, also most of the good games for PS2 eventually come out on XBox with extras like Silent Hill 2.  Also Metal Gear Solid 2 is going to be released with a remake of the Playstation prequel on GC, not to even mention the Resident Evil series which playstation owners are finding little of these days.  And in the future of gameing Xbox is the only one pushing out it's online gameplay which is a big thing for all those sports junkies and FPS fanatics.  So yeah being on top of the FF series and GTA has put Sony ahead for now, but that doesn't mean that the other consoles have crap for games; it is quite the contrary.

You must not hang out with many console gamers.  tongue I think that since there are so many more PC games released within a year than for any console, console fans more eagerly await a good title; i.e. Halo 2, SW: Knights of the Old Republic, Fable, etc. I think that PC gamers do tend to spend more time gaming, since there is less trouble over someone monopolizing a PC than what is probably the best TV in the house.

Oh, back on topic, for Xbox. If it's any good. I'll at least rent it.

It's really odd how console owners tend to sort themselves out; at my high school there are tons of Xbox owners, almost as many PS2s (to my knowledge), but only a smattering of GameCubes. This board seems to favor the PS2 GC crowd.

Thanks to system link cables, we Xbox owners seek each other out hardcore. 16-player Halo, wooo!  smile

PC all the way. I really want it for PC. Surely, the game developeres will realise that there are so many fans who want it on PC, that they 'll make a PC version?

They better do. I think it is an outrage that they don't come up with a PC version of that game.

The Gamecube version was cancelled, from what I hear.

So I'll be getting the PS2 version.  I know Groening based games aren't good, but if it will encourage the writers to make new episodes, I'll buy it.

Is there a PC version?  Or an original Nintendo version?  I have the means for those two.  Otherwise no.  [very very bad curse word.]

Could someone with the game post a transcript of the video segments on the web for the benifit of the rest of us?

Un-bendable stop spamming. And the demo isn't so hard. I'll get PS2 if any. The controls are ok, but the camera is a bit off in the demo at least.

According to this poll they have lost 20% of potential buyers.

EDIT: +21% of PC gamers.

Well, the GameCube isn't exactly known for its wealth of FPS titles.  They seem to prefer having more kid-friendly titles available, don't they?  Now, I know that this is "cartoon" violence that we're talking about here, but there has to be some sort of a reason as to why this multi-platform (i.e., non-exclusive) title wasn't also ported to the GameCube.

Also, aren't there a fair amount of games that are available on both the Xbox and on the PS2?  (Certain LucasArts Star Wars titles immediately come to mind.)  Maybe there are similarities between the two systems that make it easier to go from one to the other - Similarites that the GameCube doesn't share?  Perhaps they're just going for the systems with the largest market shares....

As for the PC is concerned - Again, given that this is considered to be a "cartoon", perhaps that's why it went to platforms first.  Consider The Simpsons games:
- Road Rage on PS2, Xbox, GameCube and GBA, but no PC port; and
- Hit and Run, to be out for PS2, Xbox and GameCube in September, but not coming in a PC version until November (according to EBGames.com).

Maybe that's just the way that Fox handles their "cartoon" properties when it comes to gaming systems.

Just thought I'd like to show some official reviews from other sites.

Gamers.com
IGN.com

They both agree on the same idea. The game's only good for fans of the show.

Gamespot now has a review of the game.  They gave it a score of 4.9 out of 10.  Like everyone else, they say that fans of the show are probably the only people who'll enjoy it, but this review is a bit more negative than the others.
