The Economist which should be mandatory reading for everyone- especially those in the media as it's a perfect example of unbiased news reporting.

Entertainment Weekly: I have no idea how or why I started receiving this and I spend very little time looking at it. Emails requesting cancellation were ignored. Apparently my 'subscription' expires in December. Good Riddance

EGM: Really, the worst gaming magazine I've ever read. Got it through one of those free sub deals. Wanted to cancel it after the first issue, but couldn't figure out how. All emails were unanswered.

Wired: My favorite magazine.  Neat articles about neat stuff.

Well I got the true ending tonight so I'm chalking this game up as complete.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Not sure what the scream was about nor how he got out safely.  I thought the ending was a let down and that text to explain the outcome was a heinous cop out for the programmers...

Also, the end boss was a PITA.  I didn't like that it was a non-weapons show down as, other than kicks and an occaisional judo throw, I never used any of them.

I found an exploit on gamefaqs- get on the lower platform wait for him to jump down and kick him, he'll climb back up to the top and repeat all over....but man fighting brock- who had a bit part to say the least- kinda soured the ending for me.

Overall the game still rates an A+ for me and is a great intro in the current gen. 

I'm thinking about hitting infinity mode, but don't know yet.

Also, of all my friends, I have the highest PP score. Huzzah for me!

There's an achievement for it and maybe a clothing item reward. I never did it.

Well, then, I'll try, but not too hard...

I plan on going through the main story again at some point- so that I can take down some of the psychopaths that I didn't have time for...and maybe rescue some more people... and actually, taking photos was an afterthought for me. Might try to get some more of those...

and maybe the 54k zombie kill achievement  icon_twisted

You want the achievement. It gives access to the real best weapon in the game.

Maybe over time I'll work up to that. I'm almost done with the 4th day and only have 6600 kills.  Another 48k really seems like it would take a bit of time biggrin

I ended up grinding it. Just put on a custom soundtrack, grabbed some vehicles, headed down to the garage and ran over 54k zombies. Took about 2-3 hours. I then just went to the roof and waited for the helicopter (you have to get an ending before the achievement awards become available). It was worth it though, that weapon made my second run through the game so much fun. Actually ended up accomplishing every side and main story mission smile.

stop it stop it stop it! Must ignore...godhugh...

2 problems:

1. how HARD would it have to have been thrown to break the tv?

2. My guess is the Wii mote would break before the screen did

I bought it on release day. I played for three hours that night. I died, hit "save progress and continue" or whatever the badly described option is.. lost three hours of game progress, and proceeded to never play it again.

The save system is awful.

It's still sitting on my shelf. I keep thinking maybe I'll pick it back up.. but it hasn't happened yet. There's too many other games that save my progress in a manner that doesn't make me want to throw a brick at my 360.

I can't begin to tell you how many games have done that to many and thus I will never touch them again most likely.  After many hours of playing to lose it and do it all over again is a sure fire killer of fun for me.  Actually had that happen to me in Call of Duty 3 and thus I returned the rental and will not be picking up again.  Will wait for the PC version for many reasons, but yes, a bad or poor save system sucks badly.

I agree on all counts, but I personally don't consider it a bad save system...it works perfectly with this game.

Yeah, but you don't have to do that to "finish" the game, right?  So you can play GoW without losing your "bet".

Um, correct.  All achievements wasn't one of my criteria slywink

Battles of Prince of Persia only has one slot though...It hasn't really affected me too much though...

Finally, I also got some time in with Battles of Prince of Persia on the DS. 

Not as much as I wanted, but a fulfilling gaming weekend after a nearly 3 week travel induced drought

Looks like they're still going for between 800 and 1000- so that still not too shabby.
