This week's XBLA game is R-Type Dimensions, which, despite being a remake of two old games, is priced at $15.

I just bought R-Type Final for the PS2 right before finding out about this release (literally, I think it was an hour).  Shmups aren't usually my style, but I had a hankering.

Has anyone tried the Wii Dokapon?  I've heard very mixed things.  I was looking into it for play with my 5 year old (or 5 and 3/4s year old, as she'd have me point out), but I got the impression that it might be a little much for her.

I just realized that while we all think Dawn of War 2 is pioneering a new style of RTS without base building and tactics focused, Myth did it first, albeit in a fantasy setting.

And if I remember correctly, didn't Ground Control do the same in a sci-fi setting?  I don't remember much base management.

Ground Control came out after Myth.  I loved that game, though, and mostly because it dumped all the minutae and was more story-oriented.

I've been thinking about dusting off Myth (I stumbled on the Codex version right before this discussion started).  I never finished either I or II (though I dearly loved 'em both for what I played).

but sod that and watch this video that is 2minutes 37 seconds

at around 1 minute 20 seconds the guy talks about 'action controls' that you can switch to,so you can move and shoot

Here's the other thing about this premise.  Failure of Halo would not only have affected the Xbox, it would have affected every console shooter that has come out since then.  Sure, it may have been evolutionary instead of rev-, but they didn't tag it Combat Evolved for nothing.  Honestly, they perfected the formula and made a genre that many thought (myself included) could only work on a PC not only viable, but damned fun and accessible.

The shield and health regen systems alone have become a standard thing.  Before it was all about the health packs.

*edit* oops sorry I didn't see that you had already mentioned PSN in the thread-I just saw XBLA in the title.

Winter has two more months in it, so it's not late.

Really excited about KZ2 but I really don't like seeing reviews A MONTH AWAY from the release date.  To me, it's almost like a little slap in the face... it's like hey, the game is finished, but we're not going to release it for a month so we can try to HYPE THE SHIT out of it!

But really, releasing reviews A MONTH BEFORE the release date is dumb.  Why?  Cos the impulse purchaser (I think) would rather pick up a game that they JUST read a review for.  Read a review, hey, this game seems fun... it releases this week?  Cool!

Really dumb move IMHO.
The whole thing seems odd to me, too.

I guess I'm in the minority but so far all the video reviews and such that I've watched have been pretty *meh*. Everything looks so 'marines in space fighting aliens' generic.

I'm way more pumped for Uncharted 2!

I hate to bite here, but, honest to G, I haven't seen a single review that wasn't bubbling over with praise.

I continue to struggle to understand why Capcom would be so stubborn in adhering to such an outdated control scheme.

Maybe because RE4 sold a shitload of copies?

For as much bitching on internet forums there is about the controls, how come it did so well across the board?

(I'm in the camp that loved RE4 btw)

i loved it on the Wii,after a while the controls really hit home with me,i didnt however try the Cube version...i havent actually heard a bad thing about the Wii controls for the game,maybe it was the cube version that the complainers were having a go at,and therfor are more or less in the same boat for Resi 5 controls



Having played both, I can testify that the Wii controls were infinitely superior to the Cube controls.

All songs will cost $1.99 (160 MP), except for the tracks by Nikko, which will be $0.99 (80 MP). The Thin Lizzy songs will also be available in a pack for $5.49 (440 MP).

I'd be into those Thin Lizzy songs, if they weren't live versions.  I will get the Pretenders tune (nice to have a non-cover) and the Benatar one.

I honestly think sales will fall as a result of the demo.


Totally agree, but I will still be one getting it.  Just too much of a fan of the whole series.

I don't know about that.  I still think this'll sell buttloads and get amazing reviews.

For me, the controls aren't the thing making me question getting this, but they are a part of it.  The difficulty is just too much, frankly.  Some of that's the controls, sure, but other times, it feels like the developers hate the players and want to punish them.  RE4: Wii Edition fixed that very well, and I thought that was a good sign for the future, but maybe not.
13022  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Skate 2 on: January 29, 2009, 06:09:54 PM
As for the game, I did pick it up, and I have a love/hate with it.  I get so annoyed early on retrying challenges over and over again, but that does make the success very satisfying.  The difficulty seems a little easier than the last go round, but it's still challenging.

And the walking still sucks ass.

The Roy Orbison pack is quite good too, and would be very noob friendly.

P.S. so, Ceekay, how are you doing so far?



I've been playing on easy until I get my fingers used to the frets- I was having issues with the red one where my middle finger didn't seem to hit it when it was supposed to...

This line is making me wonder if you're not doing the beginner thing of trying to hit the button and strum at the same time, as opposed to holding the fret button down before the note comes and then strumming at the right time.  This is the single most frequent thing I have to explain to people who are playing the game for the first time.

Of course, it's probably just the way I read it and not what you meant, but just in case.

For nice and easy, this ain't it.

I'd suggest the Boston pack, Jimmy Buffet and the Crue pack.  Those are good places to start.

I second the Boston pack. IMHO its got the right mix of fun and being "just difficult enough" to make you smile when you finally start 'getting it' on hard and expert difficulty. Especially on drums. The first time I felt like I was really "rockin' out" was on More than a Feeling on hard drums.

The Boston pack is the best release ever, assuming you can stand Boston.  Because of Rock Band, though, I've gone from thinking they were okay to, honestly, being addicted to them.  My whole family has.

I'd love the Buffet stuff more if they were originals, though (although some of the changes are very cool).

Gamespy gave it 3.5/5 with a lot of the same comments.

I was hoping to get to this today, but it's a snow day, so my kid is home.

I've been thinking about it, though, and I guess I'm surprised that people were thinking this would have RPG elements and let you loot bodies.  I thought it was pretty clear that this thing was a simulation of a battle-that kind of said shooter to me right from the beginning.  And how, exactly, would you take stuff with you out of the sim?  Also, the length doesn't bother me, as I have no doubt that this kind of game would get tiresome at much longer.  Really, the only sticking point for me is the price.  I probably would have been more comfortable at 500 points versus 800.  But I'm in now, so I'll do my best to enjoy it.  I'm hoping the Pittsburgh DLC makes up for it, content-wise, though, and doesn't cost a lot more.

Any idea when the DLC will be out today?

It was out at 8AM, at least.

There's a review up already, too.

Eurogamer was not a fan, giving it 5/10.  The biggest complaints seems to be that the game's not as fun with the role-playing taken out, the content is extremely short (he did not rush and finished in 2.5 hours), and the price doesn't meet the length or content.

I downloaded it before I saw the review.  I probably would get it anyway, but I do wish I'd waited for some impressions here, at least.

The controls ARE a little weird, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Imagine a hybrid of a Joust, Worms, and Unreal tournament.
It's got the frenzy of Unreal, the aiming of worms and the platforming brawling of joust. It's pretty chaotic and fun.

How many people are playing it online?

I'm definitely fine with the most of the controls.  I've always seen the controls as a gameplay and pacing decision.  If you changed it so you could move and shoot, you would have to rebalance the zombies so they were much more difficult to balance it out.  That and I know first hand how hard it is to move and shoot in real life, but also for more casual gamers.

It sounds like, unfortunately, they didn't change much else besides the big switch to Africa.

That's true.  In real life, I do have to stop to shoot zombies, usually.

Like warning said, there are ways to compensate in design.

There are four control schemes available in the demo, but they all seem to require you to stop and shoot.

Other tips Ive picked up, hope it helps:

3) Try to do the first 3 King Main quests before anything else. This will unlock your Chest of Rage which is a major mechanic in the game and will help things out a crapload. Talk to each summon inside the box as you level up to recruit them to your side. "Evil Shoal" = Your friend.


So, I've been trying to do this, but it seems the third quest is buried within a lot of over-my-head battles in new section.  Something about the King's brother?  (It's been a while since I've tried to tackle it again)  Can anyone remember where I need to go?  It's in a new zone, but I can't seem to find it.


IIRC you should have to visit some astrolab directly east of the starting zone. I could have sworn you can stick to the main roads and do the quest without fighting anything worse than some wolves, but its been a few weeks since Ive played. If possible try to hit the swamps and yoink some royal snakes, those things are absolute beasts in the early game, and maybe you'll get lucky and be able to add some inquisitors too. That should help a ton before you get off the first continent.

I did find it, thanks for the help.  You have to go over the bridge on the left and up a hill, though.

I'm finding red flowers in the swamp right now.  Can I ask where you got the snakes?  My army could do with some beefing up.  I hear bears are good, too.

Actually, though, you can reload in-game.  Just hit A while you're aiming.

i didnt like how it feel like a co-op game when i was playing the single player....and still not sure why my characater cant move when shooting,lets all the bad guys surround you,while you have to stop,aim and shoot...and no shooting on its own,you have to stop to aim(you can't just press the RT to shoot)..and manual loading can only be done through the item page,it only automatically reloads if you run out of bullets..other than that it was decent enough,second level was better than the first

finding the machine gun in the case at the bottom half of the first level was a big help

You can reload by aiming (LT) and pressing A.

Movement's a little less awkward this time around, but it does feel like we should be able to shoot while running, in this day and age.  I'm sure the developers would say that it's the RE style, but so was the absolutely terrible movement scheme of RE 0-3 before that, and they got rid of that.  It's not as much a deal-breaker for me as the difficulty, though.  I just won't have the patience.

I apologize if I missed any news about this, but I happened to find myself at the Magic the Gathering homepage and discovered that they are coming out with a game for the 360.  It is called Duels of the Planeswalkers - just like the old microprose game.  You can play in single player campaigns, two player co-op campaigns ( two headed giant ), and against others.  I guess you get cards by playing the campaigns, not sure on the details.  This http://www.wizards.com/magic/digital/article.aspx?x=mtg/digital/duels/whatis is the only information I've seen so far, but haven't searched any deeper yet.

Are we talking a LIVE Arcade game, or a full game?  Because if this is a 800 points kind of thing, I'd definitely try it.  Always been somewhat interested in Magic, but never got into it.

It says Arcade on the page.
