13402  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Unexpectedly Liking 360 Achievements on: January 04, 2007, 02:41:00 PM
I don't know if it's the caliber of games that I've purchased so far for the 360 (Dead Rising <my GOTY> and Gears of War), but the achievements have been rather intriguing.

I've played through Dead Rising 3 times (and will probably go through a fourth time in the future) to see things that I missed the first time through but also to get some additional achievements.  There are a couple more that I still want to get (54k kills I'm looking at you) but I don't know if it's because of the achievement itself (I don't really care about the points) or because I love the game so much.

Ditto Gears of War...though that's more of getting an achievement thing than seeing new content. I mean why else play through the game on Insane? Cause it's fun?  I don't think so.

My score is now north of 1100 which really doesn't matter to me...but achivements do, as others have said, add additional life to games and act as a neat little encourager to try something I wouldn't have otherwise attempted (knock over 30 zombies with a parasol? neat!)
13403  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Post your backlog!!! on: January 04, 2007, 02:26:51 PM
As a former backlog junkie, I'm pleased to report my new and improved backlog:

Xbox:
-empty-

console retired and sold

Xbox 360:
Battle for Middle Earth II (on 7th Good campaign mission- it has gotten better- but man, the controls..)
Call of Duty 2 (two more campaigns and I'm done with this one-up and down overall quite solid)

DS:
Meteos
Metroid Prime: Hunters
Trauma Center: Under the Knife
Phoenix Wright: Justice for All (2nd Case)
Hotel Dusk (just begun)

PS2
God of War
Chrono Cross
Resident Evil 4
Metal Gear Subsistence
Dragon Warrior VIII (doubt I'll ever finish; close to retirement)
Killer 7 (almost done!)

I consider a game on the backlog if I own it and it's not 'completed' (ie. played through and or retired/sold without completion)

Original post: 1/4/07
Update: 1/26/07

Or am I missing something?  <late game spoilars ahead>

So I climbed the long tier of steps and get to the battle with the flame guy again.  At the time the game said I had cleared about 72% of the game.

So I wax this guy first try and figure ok. new ability to open new areas just like before.... Then some dude runs in and says you did it.  My guy asks where's Celia? Dood says we're tracking her.  They then run outside and my dood says I don't feel well. Other dood says we'll have you checked out.  Roll Credits.

WHA?


Are there other story elements in other areas of the castle? Does it explain where the main bad guy went or is this is it?  Did I not do something right to get the 1942

'congrat-

SUCK ENDING!?

Are there other endings?

13409  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap- End of '06 on: January 04, 2007, 01:31:39 AM
I'm now up to 70% on the achievements in Dead Rising...so I'm going to be setting it aside until there's another lull.

Also finished EBA on the DS. What a masterpiece of a game.  Now onto the more difficult level.

Also got in some Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow....it's good but I don't know that I'll get the sequel any time soon.  I'm 65% of the way through it and ready to be done.

As for falling down on the job, Ceekay, it's called increasing demand and not diluting the brand.

My other hit thread: Weekend Playlist (which I stole from Whiteboyskim) is still going strong in the reply category. However, recap was falling behind.  I was gonna go one more week, but you've proven there's still a demand for it...I'll gladly take back my IP and fire it up again next week.

13411  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / It's May 2007: What's your most anticipated game? on: January 01, 2007, 06:04:10 PM
For 360:  I'm leaning towards John Woo's Stranglehold.  I need a Max Paynish fix.  Also Mass Effect looks good but I'm not 100% sold on it. Crackdown looks fun but I'm very skeptical.

DS:  Phoenix Wright II hands down.  DragonQuest 9 (I don't know if it's a 2007 release) is up on the list even though I'm probably not going to finish 8 (100 hours?)  But man a great handheld RPG would be awesome.

We have an unopened Nintendo DS Lite that my wife lost the reciept for.  I tried to return it for store credit to Target and they wouldn't do it because it would be more than $100.  I'm guessing Best Buy and Wal-Mart have the same kind of policy? 

Note:  Showing your license and all other ID doesn't matter, even though we shop at Target a lot and have never returned anything there... ever.

If you put it on a credit card they can search it based on the CC. If you paid cash...well...

I agree.  From the box it doesn't look good at all.  Yet everyone is raving about it.  I wish Blockbuster rented DS games.

Have faith! It is a stupendous game.  Super fun and funny.

Quote from: drake113 on December 29, 2006, 08:53:51 PM

I've sorta been struggling with this very conundrum over the past few days.

I purchased an XBox 360 from my local Best Buy Saturday, and as part of a promo deal (which I had to point out to them, I might add), they were giving away Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter with it.  Not a pack in or anything-- just right off the shelf.  I'm not particularly interested in GRAW; I've heard it's a good game, but if I had my druthers, I would have rather them knock $39 bucks off the cost of the 360 (the cost of GRAW in the store) or give me a $39 gift card.  So I've been kicking around returning GRAW ("Hey, whaddya know?  My girlfriend got me one for Christmas and didn't realize I already had it.  Er... And she lost the receipt.") to BB for store credit and using the $39 in store credit to get something else.

On the one hand, it's not honest and I'm not pretending it is.  On the other hand, though, they were willing to eat the cost of the game so long as it was sold with the 360.  Most likely, they're being compensated for it somehow, and they'll STILL be compensated for it even if I return it because as far as they're concerned, the copy of GRAW they sold with XBox transaction #49404072 is still out there.  Meanwhile, they get GRAW back, unopened, which they can sell (or bundle again) and I get to throw $39 towards a game I'd rather have, most likely Marvel Ultimate Alliance or Rainbow Six: Vegas, both of which are going for $59.

So, in summary, is it dishonest?  Yeah, sure.  Hurting them?  I don't really see how, no.

I don't know that that is dishonest actually...except if you say the part about the GF...
13426  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Yet another "Should I buy a DS Lite?" thread on: December 29, 2006, 06:51:09 PM
Elite Beat Agents is justification enough for a DS purchase...even if the DS was 300.00.

It may be my game of the year now.

Even though the question wasn't addressed to me, I'm curious as to where you're going with this.


Because if there's no absolute truth (ie. right or wrong) then whomever does the buy and return is above reproach as according to 'their' truth it's okay.  Even in something not as grey as the scenario in the OP. If truth is relative then no one can say something is right or wrong.

If you are looking to punish Saddam the way to do it isnt to kill him, its to let him sit in a jail cell for the rest of his natural life.    He is someone who used to know complete and total control over a country, and at a whim could do anything he wanted to anyone.   Keeping him alive and in captivity would be a far greater punishment then killing him will ever be.

Except that like crime bosses and drug kingpins, I'm sure he'd find a way to run something from behind the jail cell.  And then insurgents raid the jail, free him and it becomes a bigger mess.

Of course killing him could make him a martyr...

No, it only requires an internet connection if you try to play the single player campaign with a player profile that has an XBox Live account tied to it.  I don't know why, exactly, but the advice I got from Microsoft Tech Support was to simply create a offline account, and that worked fine. I'm actually more upset by the fact that there's not any sort of notification that this is the problem-- no error message or anything.  It just refuses to work with no explanation, which is a very amateur hour mistake in what is otherwise a spectacularly polished and professional game.

Well that is just preposterous.

I didn't actually try to play minus the ethernet connection, but my presumption is that it would work fine without it.  But I guess if you're connected, it searches for something...and that something was unavailable last night so there was no joy in mudsville.
