Nintendo has to tell people not to throw the remote.
Bicycles need to have warnings on them that falling off can cause injury.
People sue McDonalds for 'making' them fat.

But if Gweneth Paltrow claims Americans are dumb... she gets hammered.

The world is an interesting place, thats for sure.

Huh. That's an interesting irony.

After the first 5min of play my system went Brown screen.

I put in carbon to make sure there is no damage, BROWN Screen...
tried again BROWN Screen.

That said, ATB, if you pick up R6, I will buy it also.

Soon Ike, Soon.   When there is a deal, I shall strike.

What's MUA?

Modify: Let me rephrase. When I'm bored with GoW I shall return to Dead Rising for a bit.  Then perhaps R6.  I'm actually eyeing Kameo...or COD 2...

But maybe...maybe r6.

Regarding the length of the SP campaign, I wish they had included an act on Emergence Day itself.   Also, an act leading to the events of Marcus Fenix getting thrown in jail.   


Can you say Prequel?

Gratch, I've definitely become more discriminating as I've gotten older. I think the reason for this is equal parts burnout, time deficiency, and the realization that my REAL life was passing me by. In my closet I had over 150 games that I purchased but never got a chance to play. There actually came a point recently when I found myself stressing and purposely speeding through a game so that I could move on to the next one in my backlog. At that point I knew that it was time to re-evaluate my gaming habits

*snip*

Dante, I have recently (within the last six months) experienced this exact same thing and couldn't have explained it better myself. I have reduced my gaming library by at LEAST 50% since then and cannot even begin to describe how much better I feel because of it. I'm actually enjoying my games again!

I am considering doing this myself.

BTW- You get some back story if you leave the game sitting at the title screen for 4-5 minutes.

It's not much but it's something.

I'm no Halo fanboy. 1 was superb, 2 was a huge disappointment and 3 isn't on my list of most wanted. But that trailer kicks all kinds of butt.

Eddie. I love you so. Your 'R6 4 evar' message last night as I was getting my head blown off in GoW MP was very touching.

I don't know though that I'm up for another 3p shooter now. Unless someone can point me out a phat deal on the price...<cough>

Well, I finished Gears of War this morning so I'm on the prowl for my next title. However, I think I'm finally going to play Half Life 2 on XB1.

R6 V does look appealing but I'm gonna ride GoW multi and coop for a bit longer...

If not for the MP component, I'd feel pretty gypped on the length of GoW...that's for sure.

We have a new contender: Guitar Hero II

I do not dig the song selection thus far. I have blazed through whatever song sets to get to Sweet Child of Mine and then what happens? A craptacular cover.  CRAPTACULAR!

Ditto Cherry Pie.

Thus far there are no songs that I haven't heard before that have me like: Man that's a cool song! Like the first game.

I'm sadly dissappointed in this game.

Sure, but as far as I know all the good players are BC/GT. Maybe we should just do that like we did the last couple times than bother trying a 3 site thing? Enough people cross post to work that out.

I dunno what like we did the last couple of times is referring to.

13705  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Recap: 4/Dec/06 on: December 04, 2006, 03:08:05 PM
This was quite a weekend.  Friday night was one of the best gaming nights of my entire life with some Coop Gears of War with Ike and then a few hours of multi Gears of War with many of you guys.  Prior to that I got about an hour of Guitar Hero II (which has moved into contention for my most disappointing game of the year).

Saturday saw me finally finish up the underrated Battles of Prince of Persia on the DS and fire up Elite Beat Agents for the first time. Also did some more GoW and some more GHII.  Song selection is not so good and the songs I like almost all have TERRIBLE covers.

Sunday saw some EBA and a little bit of GoW SP.

Definitely the best gaming weekend I've had in years.
13706  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / On Cooperative and Team Play on: December 04, 2006, 03:04:09 PM
So...in the afore mentioned threads, playing with GTers is a great time- but can it make you a better player?

Friday night Ike and I played coop on casual and obviously, playing with him is better than playing with the AI controlled Dom. Some time in act 4 there's what could be considered an ambush and a Boomer comes out.  I'm blasting away at him with the chainsaw gun and have to reload. Boomer has me right in his sites and then BAM he explodes. Ike hit him in the head with the Torque bow.  Nice! 

But my real question focuses around playing with people you know vs. people you don't.

I did some ranked matches Saturday night becaue no one would accept my invites (and after Calvin, Depward and his bro, whose name I've ironically forgotten ditched me to play 'basketball') and I did not play well at all.

Is this because I didn't have the support of friends who worked reasonably well together, because the competition was that much better, nervousness at being in a new playing environment, or some other variable that I've not thought of?

In a word, playing ranked matches sucked.  But I don't want it to.

There are tricks to bring friends into ranked matches that I saw others employ (specify the search criteria) that I'd love to do with some guys from here so that we could kick some global butt.

Thoughts...?

Then why are you on my friends list? Is this an imposter or are you such a poseur that you created a gamertag just so you could be cool like us?

If you say you wanted to 'hold it for future use' I'll know you're lying cause no one would ever pick such a name...<cough>.

Oh and what do you have to to get an A? I perfected the 2nd song, scored 535k pts and still got a B.

13720  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / An SPer in an MPer's World: Multi-Player Impaired Please Read on: December 02, 2006, 01:11:32 PM
Hello everyone-

I just wanted to start this thread for all the people out there like me who are almost exclusively Single Player gamers.

For whatever reason, I've never dived into MP until 2 nights ago with Gears of War.  I played almost exclusively with people from this site and the extended family including some folks that they invited into the games.

I was very nervous at first as I'm a complete n00b in the type of game play, I didn't know the maps, nor necessarily how to work on teams.

Well as one could expect, everyone I've played with has been very helpful, accomodating, more than willing to answer my gameplay and map questions, and bring me up to speed on how things work.  It's not like the horror stories you hear about being cursed at by some nutjob.  It has been a great gaming evironment even amongst those of us who may have gone toe to toe on various subjects throughout the years at this and other sites.

So as a result, I would encourage all of you to give it a try without fear of being the weak link or exposing yourself as a n00b. It's all been fun and games and pleasantly relaxed and competitive at the same time.

Ike was brand new last night and had a hoot.  Some folks, who you think would have hours and hours of time playing MP or GoW, were either rusty or not so veteran as we might think- looking at you KD  icon_cool.

This was just my second night of what I hope will be many many more MP nights with the fellas.  I seem to have picked up the mechanics and strategy pretty quickly and hope that those of you in SP only territory would jump on board.

There may be another game tonight.  Won't you join us?
