Whoops! The official Rockstar TL&TD web page says February 17th is the release day, that's next week.

I always think of it as The Lost and the Damned as well.  However, the title is really The Lost and Damned.  I like TL&TD better.

Thanks for the heads up.  Does anyone know what sort of a schedule they're on for dropping prices?  I'm kind of holding out for the next one, I think.
13004  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (2/9) on: February 09, 2009, 01:45:45 PM
Here's what I'll probably get:
360:
FEAR 2: Project Origin - Surprised to be IN
Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost & Damned - Looking forward to this
Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad & X Blades - I'm expecting both of these to suck, but maybe one of them will be good.  At least Shifty's having a good week.

Wii:
Deadly Creatures - IN
House of the Dead: Overkill -IN
Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers - See above.  Does anyone know if this is a completely different game or just a different title?

DS:
Retro Game Challenge - Forgot about this, but it looks like I'm IN.

VC:
Wolf of the Battlefield: MERCS (Sega Mega Drive)

Wiiware:
LIT  - This game might be cool.  Here's a description:
Quote
Dark creatures have taken over Jake's high school, and it's up to you to guide him through each classroom in order to be reunited with his girlfriend Rachael. Existing light sources must be used smartly to create bridges of light for Jake to cross. One false step and Jake gets pulled into the darkness. Along the way he'll encounter twisted versions of his school's faculty, which must be battled in order to advance. LIT is a horror/puzzle game that requires the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. It contains 30 levels, five boss battles, replay modes and several unlockables, including multiple endings, Dark Mode timed challenges and an unlockable character.

I'll be in for Sacred 2, probably.  And the Witcher gave me nothing but trouble on the PC, but I liked what I played.  If the console version is good, I'll get that for sure.  But I'm like most here.  I have SO many RPGs to get through, I don't see myself picking up a lot of new ones for quite a while.  I'm even holding out on Vesperia until I find it cheap.

Still down the road... and across the bridge.  icon_wink

I heard the Crash FM guy (what, DJ Atomica or somesuch?) talking about an island that you could jump to somewhere.  Like an exclusive thing for the wealthy.  I know it's not the same thing as the planned DLC, but has anybody found that?

I'm still looking forward to Deadly Creatures, and The Maw is definitely better than a 5.  Tenchu is better than a 6, for that matter, though I could see someone not getting into it.  I'm really hoping that Klonoa is good, too.

Power parking?

High speed emergency brake parking between two other parked cars, one where you end up facing the opposite direction you started the manuever from.

Is that an actual event?  That's exactly what I pictured.  Wow, I've never seen that.

Still not having played this game much, can someone explain "Showtime" to me?

Also, is the Party Pack for local races only, or can it be used online somehow?

The Party Pack is not only exclusively local, it also only uses one controller.

Showtime is the, frankly, limp version of Crash Mode from previous games.  It has it's charms and can be fun, but it's nowhere near what the originals did.  Basically, you hold down both shoulder buttons (on 360), and your car starts to flip over.  It adds traffic around you, and you use the A button to bounce into cars.  If you hit a bus, the multiplier goes up.  You can bounce until your boost meter empties, and hitting cars gives you boost, so, theoretically, it could be endless, though that doesn't seem to happen.  Again fun, but after you've done it a few times, you won't go back often, unless you're trying to own a road (best showtime and race time for the length of a road).

Deadly Creatures has been getting some buzz lately, because it is unique and looks good on the Wii.  It's also due next week!

You play a scorpion and a tarantula and work your way across the desert to an old, dusty gas station.

IGN just put a review out.  8.0!

Closing Comments
I pray that Wii owners take notice of Deadly Creatures so that this ambitious new property from Rainbow Studios may blossom into a lucrative franchise. If definitely deserves the attention. This is a game for Wii owners who want something refreshingly different. It's powered by a dark, intelligent storyline, boasts great production values through and through, and features smart, fun controls (that use the Wii remote well), not to mention some unexpectedly engrossing exploration elements. The game's got a few polish issues -- camera and framerate hiccups and some frustrating bugs of the technical nature -- but it's still engrossing from beginning to end. THQ's creepy Wii exclusive action-adventure is not just a console showpiece, overflowing with cutting-edge graphic design and ultra-ambient audio, but one of the few titles for the system available whose main characters will give you goose bumps, let alone the supporting cast.

If you complain that Wii never gets high-quality third-party games and you don't buy Deadly Creatures, you've only yourself to blame.

I can't wait.

Gamestop has VP:TIP used for 26.99 right now.  Wait for the 360 used coupon to come around again and get an Edge card, and it'll cost less than $20.  That's what I did a couple of weeks ago.

This week we're releasing a 3 pack from The Fratellis, featuring tracks from their 2006 album Costello Music!

Here's the track listing


The Fratellis - Creeping Up the Back Stairs
The Fratellis - Flathead
The Fratellis - Henrietta

All tracks are original master recordings.

These tracks will be $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points) a piece, or $5.49 (440 Microsoft Points) for the full 3 pack.

I've never heard of The Fratellis.  I guess they are big in Europe though.

AWESOME!! 

Costello Music is a fantastic freaking album that was largely ignored!  I wish "Vince The Lovable Stoner" was on there, but they're all good tunes.  Seriously.  The whole album.  Go buy it now.

'Nother pack announced:

Quote
Cops & Robbers
Slotting in soon after the Party pack, Legendary Cars, Toy Cars and Boost Specials, comes another premium pack - Cops and Robbers. This one’s dedicated to bringing you the thrills and spills of cops and robbers car chases in Paradise City.

We’re keeping details of the pack under wraps for a little longer, but here are the first ever screen shots to keep you going! Check these stunning high resolution at www.criteriongames.com and on Sony’s excellent PlayStation Blog from Monday (9th February 2009)

Man, I've got to give them credit.  I've never seen any game with such a dedicated team behind it.

I have to wonder if this was a proposed strategy.  Instead of releasing a new version every year, you keep updating the one you've got.  I'd be interested to see the numbers on that.

Add to that Sony's recent comments that the PS3 is "future proof," and I wonder if we'll see the day where consoles become like plug-n-play PCs.  Where you head to the store every few years to buy new "Guts" at a cheaper price, but keep your basic unit.  Seems like it would be complicated, as you'd have to either make sure games could run on older versions as well as new ones, or make them extremely well labeled, so there'd be no confusion.

I guess we'll see how the Wii Motion Plus comes together.  If it becomes a requirement for some games, or if, as is my pipe dream, it works BC with all games, or if it's just a gimmick that won't be adopted enough.  If it's handled right, it could pave the way for the console I was mentioning above.

Quote from: kronovan on February 06, 2009, 04:36:47 PM

Mafia was just released the other day on gametap and it's one of the games I never played but have been meaning to for some time. I didn't play it originally due to my general dislike at the time of sandbox games like GTA. God Father Black Hand, No more Heroes and recently Far Cry 2 have changed that for me. So...I downloaded it and was completely blown away by the intro; looks to be a sandbox game with a story and a character or 2 I might actually care about.

So...anyhow....I fire up the tutorial and I'm asked to go to climb up on some stage and crouch down and pick up a weapon on a table. So I do the necessary moves and all my avatar does is get into a boxing crouch and shadow boxes the table or does nothing??? I'm now left wondering if I just completely suck at mouse+keyboard control or if the tutorial's borked. In all fairness to myself, if I don't setup my Nostromo gaming keypad I'm more or less lost in a PC game; don't know why, but keyboards have never felt natural to me for gaming despite having been typing on them over 2 decades. I'm going to push on with this a bit and try to figure it out, but if anyone can recall what's necessary to get this game mechanic to work, I'd appreciate it.

You double checked your key shortcuts, yes?

If I remember, for me, the middle mouse button had me picking things up.  The controls are a little weird, especially looking back on them now, when things have been streamlined in other ways.

I would also say that Mafia is way less sandboxy than current sandbox games.  IIRC, there's a freeplay mode, but I don't think I ever touched that for more than a minute.  The story mode is so phenomenal, there's no need.  One of these days I may even get through the last mission!

For the restart, it's "right" on the d-pad or arrows for the normal "EZ Drive" stuff and you'll see one of two new options - Restart current event if you're in one, or Restart previous event for the last one you completed.

I have seen it and done it.  It makes such a huge difference, you really wonder why the hell it wasn't there in the first place.  I don't think there's any real load time, either.  The biggest bummer is you have to sit through the race description again.  Not a big deal, but I wonder if they don't make you go through it as a punishment.
13021  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Burnout Paradise : DEMO IMPRESSIONS! (newfangled poll too!) on: February 06, 2009, 02:43:10 PM
Well, the patch is out for the 360.  It doesn't work like a regular patch, you have to actually get to the news screen.  Then, when it updates, it'll ask if you want to apply it.

I tried Party Mode.  At first, I was a little irked, because I was kind of tricked into buying it (not maliciously on Criterion's or Microsoft's part, I mostly tricked myself).  Since the update didn't happen, I thought you might have to get the Party Pack to make it work.  You don't.  Anyway, I played by myself as two players.  It's a surprising amount of fun! 

Basically, you choose the number of players (2-8), then the number of rounds.  The rounds default to random, but you can choose what you want to play.  They are short challenges.  Make the jump over the damn, take out two billboards, drive the longest in the oncoming lane, drift around a fountain with the steering controls reversed, get to the top of a car park then jump to the ground, etc.  There's a little bit of a load for each one, but it's not unmanageable, IMO.  The winner of a round gets points, the loser doesn't.  Whoever has the most points at the end wins.  I wasn't expecting much, but I can see this getting a lot of play.  Hopefully, there's a big enough selection of events.

Hopefully, I can convince my wife to try it (she was a big fan of the original Crash Mode-I should check to see if that's one of the round choices, actually).  Maybe my 5 year old will be able to pull some things off, too.  It's a real shame there's no Live functionality with this.  With luck, it'll come eventually.

I'm about to tackle the game itself with the new restart function!  Yeah!

I'm also curious what the Party Pack lets you do.  I'd like the option to play local multiplayer, but $10 is no small amount.

The Part Pack lets you play local MP, but it's a pass the controller affair.

It's kind of annoying that you can buy the Party Pack but can't use it.

Here's what Criterion says:

If you're an Xbox 360 player waiting for to play Burnout Party, please be aware that we're having some difficulties deploying the update that supports this pack.  If you've purchased the pack via Xbox Live Marketplace, it should work once the 1.60 patch has been deployed.

We're working around the clock with Microsoft to resolve this issue and will post, when we have news.

If you're a PS3 or PC player having trouble accessing the Criterion Games Network (our in-game browser pages), we're also attemptoing to resolve this and will post as soon as we have progress to report.  We hope to get this working in time to bring you news of a new pack for 2009 tomorrow.

all the enemies look the same,didnt the first game get ripped for having all identical enemies?,i am hoping that there is some variety in the enemies,or it may get old real fast

That was my biggest (non framerate related) issue with Killzone 1.

I guess it is a valid gripe, but in something like CoD you fight against 1 enemy type the whole time. Killzone is a  sci-fi shooter, but not an alien shooter like Halo/Resistance/Gears where you are fighting against multiple species. So given the storyline I probably don't care too much.

Do they at least say different things?  My biggest complaint wasn't so much that they all looked the same as that they sounded exactly the same (and they had horrible accents on top of it).

Are you also upset about game demos that let you unlock the full content with just a purchased license key?  You have the entire game on your harddrive, but you have to pay X dollars just to download a 10 character string of text.

That may be the strongest argument I've heard in this whole content on-disc thing.

You're not paying for the demo though (unless it's something like iD did with their demo disc years ago whee you had to buy the disc and they put their whole library on it with the option buy codes to unlock them, which got cracked in a few days so people ended up with tons of games for a few bucks). In this case you're paying 60 bucks for a disc and since you own the disc you should have access to everything on it.

Except you don't have access to the game code or songs used in the game or rights to use the characters as you want...

I used to use rechargeable NiMh batteries, they worked great, but only for maybe a year or two.  There is a newer style rechargeable out now that says it has longer battery life, but since then I got the recharge kit.  I'm afraid that I also use the lazy method - when one battery needs recharging, I swap batteries and I'm back in business - well, usually:

There is also a defect in either the batteries or the controllers that people have been reporting.  I have one controller (or battery, still not sure which) that starts flashing the low battery alert when the icon on the XBOX page still has 3/4 battery life showing.  I thought maybe it was just one side of the charger that was defective, but that turned out not to be the problem.  Then I thought maybe the display was defective and showing a higher power amount than the battery actually had.  One day I ignored the flashing light, and the battery kept working as long as it normally would have.  Somewhere along the line, I saw other people talking about the same problem.  So now I'm off to kathode's link to see if the "too much" info site discusses it.  icon_razz


isnt the 360 controller meant to flash for a while when your batteries get half way(i am sure i read that somewhere) ..and then flash all the time when they are nearly out of juice(and wouldnt all that flashing make the juice run lower even quicker?)

and yeah Myto,ever since you told me about those NiMh batteries that is what i have been using,i still use them now..but i think its time to get new batteries,as when charged they dont last long,i put in a newly recharged battery into my mindidisc walkman the other day and the battery indicator showed that it was a quarter full,lasted about an hour or so listening to The Doors thumbsup

They do flash, but intermittently.  It's like every couple of minutes or so.  Often enough that it's distracting and I reach over and pop out one of my batteries and replace it.

It may be that the update I received is an old one, and there is another one due today at some point.  Kind of annoying that the party pack is out but not the patch to use it.  I don't have the option to run the party pack yet, so I'm thinking that's the case.

13037  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 3 more days til HALO wars demo on: February 05, 2009, 04:06:47 PM
I saw MP listed, but I didn't try it.

Some ramblings:

I played the tutorials, the first mission and most of the second mission (don't eject whatever's in your DVD drive or it'll kick you right out, annoyingly).  It's fun, but about what I expected.  From the tutorials, it looks like there are some cool differences between the Marines and Covenant, but I couldn't tell how much.

This is certainly a viable console RTS.  I'm just not sure how into RTS gameplay I am anymore.  I felt like I was going through the motions more then once.

The supply/power stuff is structured nicely and units build quickly, which helps speed up gameplay. 

There seems to be no real grouping option.  You either select individual unit types, local units or all units (you can also jump to scattered armies by pressing down on the d-pad).  That's fine for me, since I normally focus on one group (and maybe one at the base for defense), but I imagine it won't make most RTS gamers happy.

There are a lot of sub-objectives, it seems (the second map had at least four that I can think of, and many of those had a few instances to accomplish).  That helps to keep active as you can check things off as you explore the map, and it definitely added to the playtime.  I'm not able to get excited about maps that take more than an hour anymore, though (I certainly am not excited about going back in and replaying that second mission after getting kicked out). 

The cutscenes were quality, and there seems to be a specific story going on (as opposed to hopping around to various battles in a war).  That may be enough to compel me, if I hear the story is good.

The graphics were nice enough.  Smooth, but nothing dazzling.

I'm on the fence and will wait for revs/imps, but while I was a little bored, it may be just entertaining enough.

Apparently, it's 5PM UK time.  

I do remember people talking about getting a UK account somewhere in this thread.  And I just saw it confirmed* that you need to pre-order through GS.  Damn, I didn't know that.

* And by "just saw it," I did not mean by Destructor. icon_wink

I could be in the minority here, but I've heard positive feedback about Mortal Kombat Vs. DC.  Friends have all commented on how much fun the game can be, and they've even mentioned an entertaining storyline as well.  I know little about how it fares online (or if it even has an online component), and unfortunately I haven't played it myself, but friends have all mentioned how much fun they've had with it.  At least it's another title to add to your list of comparisons.

I enjoyed the hell out of it.  It's nothing buy fanboy service, but it's damned entertaining.  However, if you're looking for fighting depth, MKvDC might not fit the bill.

Good to know they are spending their time wisely by updating us with screenshots like these...  Tongue

What were the people whining about?

Bael

There was an uproar when the first set of screenshots came out that, essentially, you could actually see things.  Purists wanted more browns and for things to be darker/murkier.  They saw this new art style as a slap in the face what with an actual color palette and all.
