MGS3 is going to blow you away.


I wouldn't say that.  As others pointed out, MGS 3 takes a long, long time to get going.  Honestly, I didn't start liking it until I finally left the jungle.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Basically, after The End.
  I had stopped playing for a while, in fact, because I wasn't grooving on it.  There were some moments earlier that were okay, but there weren't a lot of holy shit moments like there seemed to be in MGS 2.  Granted, once I left the jungle, I started getting blown away. 
Spoiler for Hiden:
I finally committed to loving the game during The Sorrow boss "fight."  It just ramps up from there.
  But that's only the last third or so of the game.  That's a very, very long time to playing a game that's just okay or even pretty good.

I still have the last stage to go.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm going to find The Boss.
  Given past games, anything could happen between now and then (some things I may even suspect
Spoiler for Hiden:
Luke and Leia much?
, but I'm sure there are many that I won't). At this point, I still rate MGS2 over 3, just because 3 seems like they piled all the good shit at the end.

If you're into the Conan world, it can be mindless fun.  I enjoyed it and would say it's worth $20, as long as you know what you're getting into.

Why wouldn't you just wait for the superior instruments that will come out in Rock Band 2 and then go pick up the first one?  Why, oh God, WHY?!?!?!?!?!?

I think Nth just got the game, not the whole set.  Thus picking up the guitar with it.

I have a hunch that, much like the demo comments here and elsewhere, the game reviews are going to be all over the place.  It just seems to be a polarizing game.  That said, those types of games don't often sell well, so I'll be surprised if we see the sequels that are planned.

Isn't the game basically like a Diablo action-rpg type?  Where do you get that they don't sell well, or is it not akin to Diablo at all?

Well, a couple of things.  Diablo sells well.  Diablo type games?  Not necessarily.  Also, that sells well on PC. 

But that's not even the point.  I think you misread my comment.  I wasn't saying Diablo-type games don't sell well.  I was saying games that are polarizing don't sell well. 

The comments about the demo and online reviewers who played a near final version have been all over the place.  The company is extremely popular, but only with core gamers, near as I can tell.  And the long wait for this means the anticipation is so high that it may never live up to it.  It seems to have fallen short for many already.

Once you've bought it, you should be able to re-download it any time you want to, so you don't even have to store it.  I think it also supports downloading as you go, so you can wait to download chapter 2 until you finish chapter 1, and then you can download it from in-game (or so I've heard, I haven't tried yet).

It looks like you can erase anything except the first episode set.  And you can download any episode set you bought any time you want.

I'm through Chapter 4, and it gets better and better, IMO.  The graphics are too grainy and dark and the control is not ideal, but they somehow add to the gameplay.

I just played through a very creepy level:
Spoiler for Hiden:
A little girl is chased by a former friend into a broken down hospital and she has to get to the employee stairs, avoiding zombie nurses and ducking into a boiler at one point.  Reminded me of Silent Hill 2.  Good stuff.

Quote from: drake113 on August 12, 2008, 06:00:15 PM

Hmmm... On the surface, it sounds kinda cool, but I have my doubts.  First off, consider people like Superman and Spider-Man-- give them a sandbox city to play in and it works because the act of them going somewhere in Metropolis or New York is, in and of itself, pretty exciting.  In fact, one of my favorite parts of the Spider-Man series has always been web slinging, and pretty much the only thing I remember liking on Superman Returns was hyperflight. 

In Batman's case, though, they don't really rely on showing him getting from point A to point B because showing him leave the Batcave, get in the Batmobile, drive to the police station, park, get out, scale the side of the building, and creep into Commissioner Gordon's office is not remotely as cool as him just suddenly stepping out of the shadows behind Commissioner Gordon to finish his sentence for him.

Also, the idea of Batman out and about, patrolling Gotham seems kinda... I dunno... beneath him.  I mean, I get Spider-Man going out on patrol and looking for trouble, stopping purse snatchers and what not, but Batman?  It always seemed to me that when he leaves the Batcave, he's got a pretty good idea about where he's going and who he expects to find when he gets there.  He's much more proactive than reactive, you know?

That being said, I've loved Pandemic since the days of Battlezone, so if it has to be a sandbox game, at least it's in good hands.


Batman frequently goes on patrol in the comics.  He seems to often take out random thugs.  Not to mention that he often has to beat information out of punks.  Also, depending on how they're going about this, he doesn't always just cruise around in the Batmobile.  In the books and cartoons, he swings around on a grapple and wire that, frankly, is remarkably similar (if a little more disbelief suspending) to Spidey's web swinging.

Ouch.  This one is going to be pending reviews and/or feedback for me, so that's not a good start.

I'll be doing the two XBLA games, most likely.  Strongbad is very likely, too (on Wii).

I'll think about Space Seige, but I have a hunch I won't get it.

Bagai-O Spirits is supposed to be great, but it doesn't come in to Best Buy until next week, so I'll probably be waiting.

I'm interested in the Wii Line Rider, too.

I am absolutely loving this gem.  It's takes a very unique experience for me to get in to platformers these days but Braid definitely has it.

I feel it probably should have been 800 points, but I've certainly enjoyed the game so far and don't have regrets about the price.  I only have 4 or 5 more puzzle pieces to snag.  I'm tempted to look up a hint for the "Hunt" level on World 3 as I just can't seem to wrap my head around it.  But then again I'm down to the last few and don't want to shorten an already bite sized game.

I'll have to look up those stars as I had no idea about them.

thumbsup thumbsup

Is that the area where time flows forwards as you move right and backwards as you move left?

If so, I might recommend testing out how you can double bounce on creatures.

I'm having a rough time with that one myself, even with the double bouncing.  I declare that one Impossible, even with a computer.  Although I think that one is World 4, not 3.

Yeah, it is world 4.  Just remember that World 1 is the "Final" level that you have, since so much of the game is backwards.

Also, the Epilogue has a TON of hidden text that's hard to read.  This is how you get it, and trust me, this isn't exactly spoiler territory:  On most screens there's a red book, right?  Well, you need to open it, then make sure you don't close it by hitting a green book.  Now go and wander behind the various scenery in each section.  If you hear chanting, then the text is changing and you can read other hidden parts of the story.  Very clever.

I know my problem is in World 4, but I wasn't sure if that is also Jancelot's problem.

Thanks for the book tip.  Never would have spotted that.

A 73% Gamersankings score is a pan now?  Most of the reviews I remember reading echo comments here that the combat was a load of fun, but the story was weak.

73% is pretty much the equivalent of a C-, sounds like that's 'being panned' to me.  I noticed I have the PS3 demo downloaded but I never installed it.  maybe I should give it a spin.

Gamespot describes their 75% score as "Good."  IGN's 7.7 is described exactly the same way.  So Good = Pan.  Got it.



I've always looked at percentages like the grading scale, and even 75% or 77 (7.7 out of 10's equivalent) would be a C, C+ at the most.

And yet, that's not how they do it.

I'm just saying that the reviews were actually pretty positive for this title.  It shouldn't be classified as having been panned.

Thank you for the head pat, though.   Roll Eyes

They've repeated over and over, there is a full campaign with a lot of developer created levels all tied together with a humorously thin storyline.  There are enemies controlled via complex AI brains that designers can customize, and all sorts of other things.

This isn't just some sandbox.

So I have heard.  But all of the gameplay I have seen so far consists of going from one side of the screen to the other on a brutally linear path. 

That doesn't bother me.  I haven't heard even one of the repeated comments that there's a full campaign, but I'm happy to hear it,  Of course, I've only had a PS3 for less than half a year and only payed peripheral attention to the game before that.  I think it's odd that they haven't talked about a single player campaign much recently, though.

the fact that everything you see in the videos, all the pre-built levels, are made with the same construction kit included in the game just blows my inner child away smile ...

I'm kind of in the same boat as Razgon.  I'm a little more cautiously optimistic.  I love platformers, but there better be a full, pre-created game there.  I doubt I'll be wading through crap, unless there's a really good ranking system for user-created content.  Even so, I'll be relying on other people. 

It's like Home for me.  I really don't get what the buzz is on that thing.  Seems like a system where anything you want to do takes even longer.

The thing that kind of sucks is that they don't teach you how to play at all.  If you don't figure it out right away, you're pretty much hosed.  Like in that first world I can't figure out how to get to a couple of the pieces, and no amount of jumping in one place and rewinding is going to get me high enough to reach it.

There are some mechanics that are definitely surprising - in fact, I think I would never ever have gotten to the two pieces at the end of the world 2 Cloud Bridge level without looking at a message board.  It just didn't occur to me that the game could possibly work that way.

To be sure, I still heart it very very much.  Now that I'm thinking a little more outside the box, I'm having more success.

They should definitely hold your hand just a little bit at the beginning, so that you know what sort of things are possible.  Not spell it out, but guide you to that outside the box thinking.  Even letting you know that the stages are self contained would have helped.  I went to a forum, thinking that I needed to eventually unlock a double jump, and I wanted to see how far I had to wait to do that.  I feel shamed that I used a hint, but the people who figured out the

Very important point.

Yeah, it's kind of easy to go along and think that there's stuff you will have to come back
to much later in the game (because it is tricky to get to), but I cleared all of world 2 before I paid for the game.

It's quite brain-bending. I hope it holds up the whole way through without becoming too
hard or tedious. Regardless, it's the kind of development effort I want to support.

One review I read said there was no difficulty ramp up at all.  It stays about the same (though, presumably with innovations in use of the core mechanics coming each step of the way).

I've finished two levels and it's important to also note that each level so far has been self contained.  In other words, you don't have to do something in another level to unlock the level you're on. 

One very minor hint that is not a spoiler, but I'll spoiler it anyway:

Pay attention to the level titles, sometimes they give a nudge.

There are some striking differences between this and PQ.
For instance, those dudes on the tabs (I-IV) appear to be units
of some sort (they have their own health indicator as well as what
looks to be an elemental affinity/mana indicator). Then there are
those symbols around the outside of the board (huh, the inside is 6*6).
I'm not so sure this is a match-3 variant.

Sounds like we should be hearing more about this soon.

And yet, what struck me was how damned similar it looked to Puzzle Quest.

That said, I have a feeling the real differences will come from the board you move around on.  Since Warlords was mentioned, I picture enemies you can see moving around as you move.

I would only be interested if it were also a movie tie-in.

so you're in then?

Well, shut my mouth.

Why do I think Starshifter would have liked this?
