Quote from: SensuousLettuce on August 26, 2008, 11:56:23 AM

I never used the vita chambers in Bioshock- if I died I loaded up my most recent save (I'm just hardcore that way).  Also, I wouldn't allow myself to kill a big daddy unless I did it without dying...

Diablo II is the first game I can think of that I played that didn't really penalize you for dying...other than having to go back for your stuff. Maybe you lost some gold too?

I think it was a fine mix because you had to fight your way back to your corpse to get your equipment.  That'd be a fine norm for me.  You aren't penalized per se, but you do have to fight in a weakened state to get back to your good stuff...

What you just described is totally a penalty, IMO.  Fighting back to your loot in a weakened state through all the bad guys you just cleared?  PITA.

<sigh>

I want this game but I know I'll never finish it in time for all the other fall releases.  They should make a law stating all games with playtimes longer than 40+ hours can only be released in the first half of the year when it's a slow release period.

Or you could just wait to buy it until then.

Just kidding.  I wouldn't be able to do that either.

finished Silent Hill 1 now,5 and a half hours....i was following a guide for most of the part and i got 197/204 items,not too shabby,LOL

got the good+ ending,but checked on youtube for the other 6(the sixth one being just a blooper real you get at the end of all the endings)


from what i hear SH:Origins,SH 1 and SH 3,all follow the story about the cult Alessa and Dahlia Gillespie..whereas silent hill 2 and 4 focus more on the wierdness of the town...so i am wondering what will be the main focus in Homecoming

I think Silent Hill V is the one where the town gets hijacked by Pyramid Head's half-brother who goes looking for a god.  William Shatner is lead developer.

Looks like I'm IN on N+ for the DS.  IGN gave it a 9.0!

Closing Comments
This is an extremely polished game that fits the DS like a glove. It's got style, grace, and attitude, and it feels good to play. The physics are great, and almost every level is fiendishly clever. It's also one of the rare titles that are presented better on a handheld than on a console. No question, N+ is one of the best DS games of the year.

Another Take
N+ is an instant classic, and if you aren't convinced now, you will be minutes after booting the game up. It's all about where the product puts its priorities. Some titles on DS push the hardware, innovate with the touch screen, or expand the audience with new designs that stretch the definition of what a "game" is. Others, like this little pocket gem, simply strive to master its craft. You run. You jump. You love every second. N+ is a game in the purest sense of the word. Buy it.
13005  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The "no-penalty" death trend on: August 25, 2008, 06:57:04 PM
The no death thing allows for a game to flow a lot better than abusing save/load.  I'm all for designers adding in a penalty option, but I'm against taking the option out.  I understand some people want incredible challenge in a game.  I'm not one of them, but let them have their cake, too.  I just don't have time any more, and I know from experience I will just stop playing.  Most recently, it happened with Contra 4 for the DS.  I didn't pick up Bangai-O Spirits or Final Fantasy IV for these very reasons.  I know these are supposedly phenomenal games, but I won't bother with themn when I have other, non-punishing games to play.  I'm even proudly (and slowly) playing through the first Ninja Gaiden in Ninja Dog mode.

A little rambly, but there you have it.  No death penalty =  thumbsup

I wanted to say that I really enjoyed the Tiger Woods Demo.  I thought the changes to character improvement were very smart (they felt repetitive after a while in the demo, though, hopefully there will be a larger variety of tasks).

Still waiting for reviews, but I'm optimistic.

The End is a polarizing boss?  I'm seen nothing but almost unanimous praise for that battle.

Well, I wasn't fond of it.

Also, I was getting very annoyed running around trying to find him the first time (I had my heat goggles at the ready for when I did),  so I went online to see if I was missing something else.  There were comments like this one:

While there are a lot of people that hate this boss fight (because it can take so long), it is personally one of my favorites. It is the first realistic sniper duel ever in a game. Although I will admit, it was a bitch to do for this FAQ.
 

A lot of griping about him in forums, too.

360:
Infinite Undiscovery
Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
Need for Speed Undercover
Tales of Vesperia
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09

At another time in my life, I would have been in on all of these, but I'm going to wait for reviews on most of them.  I think I may be out on IU and ToV (though the latter is pretty tempting).  I constantly buy these types of games and never come close to finishing them.

Wii:
Mario Super Sluggers IN
Freddi Fish: Kelp Seed Mystery; Pajama Sam in Don't Fear the Dark; Spy Fox in Dry Cereal (I'll probably get one or more of these for my daughter at some point)
Tiger Woods 09 If it's different enough from the 360 version, I may pick it up if the reviews are good

DS:
N+ (maybe, but the XBLA game is probably enough for me)


Also the Wiiware game is the rhythm game Helix.

If you love what you've played so far, just wait.  IMO the game really kicks into high gear with The End and just keeps escalating from there. 

The game definitely gets better after The End (he's a polarizing boss, to be sure).

I wouldn't over-hype it, though.  Honestly, some of the talk here made me expect more than I actually got.

Don't mind episodes either, but I think going the hard copy route would end up being cheaper...

no disagreement here - just saying that, in it's downloadable form, it actually works really well, & doesn't feel chopped-up at all...

I have a feeling it is still episodic on disc.

The format works well, and I don't think it's made to be taken as a whole without the episodes.

If I abandon a few $$$ at the end of the my XBox360 days...I think I'll manage to survive. smile

And honestly, what you are saying doesn't make sense.  If I have leftover points, like say 100, I realize I can't spend them on anything.  And that makes me want to buy more...but so would having 0 points.  The only effect at all is at the end of the line, and honestly losing a dollar or two doesn't seem like such a big deal.

There have been times when I was 10 points short that I didn't buy something, because I didn't want to put in 6.25 when all I really needed was 50 cents.  The system is convoluted and there is no good reason why they couldn't have had you just be able to spend exact money.  The PSN Store beats XBox Live's ass on this one point.

Except for one small bit - Sales

It's a brilliant move on Microsoft's part.  As brilliant as the guy who invented poker chips.  By using a points system, no one thinks about the money they're spending.  The spillover is just icing on their cake.

I have purchased many, many, many more things on XBLM than I have on PSN.  Some of that is availability, some of this is the slow download and the pain in the ass of downloading then installing, but every time I go into my PSN "wallet," I think about the money I'm spending.

IGN has posted their review - 8.2/10.

Their comments:

Quote
Tales of Vesperia is a strong anime-style Japanese RPG with a wide-ranging story, compelling characters and an intense real-time battle system that keeps you on your toes. Although it has a somewhat inconsistent visual style and is relatively low on graphical details, the character designs and animations are very good, and thereís a ton to explore in the world. The storyline isnít breaking any new ground and begins to unravel somewhat at the end, but thereís power here, and the characters will definitely stay with you after the battle ends.

I had no idea.  I force-threw a crate into a passing TIE but had no idea I could throw one or bend support beams. 

This demo looks like it is going to get a lot of play. 

as far as I can tell you can't throw the moving ones, but the ones hanging in the hangar bay are tossable (except for the Tie Bomber).  they're kind of hard to aim though.

Actually, you can throw the TIE Bomber.  You just have to see the body of it.  You can't lock on through the wings.

I have a feeling the overuse of force powers is going to be way over the top.  That's not how Jedi roll. 

The Force powers being over the top is not just the whole point of the game, it's the developers' mantra ("Kicking ass with the Force").  I think the over-powering will be explained, but I could be wrong, since it sounds like you start the game with full powers enabled (no spoilers).  Regardless, I'm sure there will be a slower ramp up, and you'll be eased into the uber mode.

But remember: "Size matters not."  The game is just taking that and running with it.

Loved it.  The demo made me grin spontaneously, which doesn't happen often.  Honestly, even though I knew it was possible, throwing a TIE made me giddy.  Not a fan of button presses, but I am a huge fan of what happened as a result of those presses.  NICE.

One thing I loved was walking along a walkway with TIE zipping past and firing every once in a while.  I bent one of the support beams outward.  Next TIE to come along=KABOOM.  It's crap like that that'll make this game.

Did you see the play through of the construction site level Bullwinkle?  It's a play through of an actual developer created level.

Here, let me post for you actual developer levels that have gameplay not just creation.

And honestly, alongside all of the many developer levels strung together in a campaign, you'll also get additional develop levels later, and an entire community creating and ranking levels.  As such you'll always know

Some gameplay from the first party of the Junkyard Jamboree level:
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/38714.html

A boss battle at the end of Junkyard Jamboree:
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/36988.html
or in HD:
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/36989.html

An example of a simpler mini-game style of level.  The goal is to survive as long as possible to get the highest score on the board:
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/38708.html

Keep in mind that the development of all these tools that players can use to create also helped make it easier for developers to come up with a lot of cool levels for players to play.

I've seen some other gameplay vids.  I was really talking about that particular video.  Apart from building the monster (which, to me, seems akin to set-up for a complicated boardgame-the kind where it takes you an hour before you're even ready to do anything-but without the gameplay that follows all of that set-up), there wasn't anything that made me even think this was a game.  So to watch it and say, "Wow, that's my most anticipated game..." is just something I don't get.  Not in a judgy way, except in that it's making me wonder about myself.  What the hell am I missing?

I love platformers.  I would probably f around with the construction for an hour or so and never, ever come back to it.  If there is enough gameplay to satisfy me, I'll be in.  I would no doubt download the highest rated levels by people who love f-ing around with the construction.  I'd prefer a story, something to give me a sense that I'm progressing, but I don't need one.  Not every game needs that.  My fear, though, no matter how many times I've heard that the designers are putting in a full game, is that we'll get, like, a dozen levels all saying, "Look at the kind of thing you can do" and then the distinct impression that they're leaving it up to the community to use the tools.  For me, tools aren't gameplay.

But that isn't the problem. The problem is that d-pad hits the 'wall' inside the controller. That won't fix anything.

But maybe that's what they mean by "looser."  That they did the same fix as home users have, just sanded out the d-pad rim.  Or widened it.

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=195683


Quote
slightly redesigned Xbox 360 controller has been spotted on the show floor of the Leipzig Games Convention, sporting a new, more responsive d-pad.


While aesthetically identical to the previous Xbox 360 controller model (apart from being green in colour), our man on the floor reports that the d-pad on the new one is massively improved, sporting a full eight-way directional input as opposed to the previous's four.

The coloured pad is on demo booths playing Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, which we're told benefits greatly from the better d-pad.

This slight redesign should also work wonders with beat-em-ups such as Street Fighter IV and Xbox Live Arcade titles, which have been suffering badly with the current 360 controller's dodgy directional pad.

Our man in Germany has snapped some pics of the new pad and we'll have them on the internet for you shortly...



hopefully this will improve games like super puzzle fighter,and tetris



Yeah, great.  Except we here in the States aren't getting it, apparently.

Enjoy it, MO, with your "football" gaming.

Well, it reminds me a bit of a parent who will say, "Look, my high school kid is going to drink alcohol.  I would rather they did it in my home where I can at least keep an eye on them, than out somewhere, especially if they have to drive."  I actually think this is a good idea.  Better than a clueless parent who either assumes their kid doesn't drink or one who adopts a don't ask/don't tell policy.

However, it doesn't sound like this woman is going to sit down with her child and talk about what he's played or seen.  She's just an idiot.

Kids do mature differently, and there is something to be said for the allowing it in a controlled environment situation.  Still, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find an 8 year old who was ready for GTA.

My parents started letting me see R rated movies when I was twelve.  But there were some caveats.  I could only see horror films, and I had to tell them about the movies.  This was after my dad, after careful consideration, took me to see Alien .  When I made it through that fine, he realized I was ready.  

The following year, kids were sneaking out behind their parents backs to see Little Darlings (some even seemed to have permission).  I wasn't allowed to go, and, though I was jealous, I never attempted to go myself.  My parents had given me enough freedom, and I felt like they were right in their assessment of me.

If this woman had put that much thought into it, I'd have some respect for her, but it sounds like she's just taking the easy road.

Good job on the Gamestop employee, though.

1Ups review is out: C-

At the very least, the cyber-Norse concept of Too Human is a good one that's worth exploring further, just not in this context. The game is simply schizophrenic; it attempts to be all things to all people and never succeeds in executing any of them well. The end result is in dire need of polish and focus, and that doesn't solely apply to gameplay mechanics. There's absolutely no reason why a game released in 2008 should have a bug where characters can fall through solid ground and into some pseudoabyss.

I'm not expecting reviews to be good, either.  I was kind of planning to wait, but maybe everything came together in the final product.

Like everyone is saying, I'm in on Galaga if it's half as good as either Pac-man CE or Space Invaders Extreme.

If the reviews are good on Too Human, I'll get it, otherwise I'll wait 'til it drops.

I will get at least Duran Duran for RB, maybe Devo, too.

R&C is going to have to wait.  I'm playing through the series and am only on 2.  I have the next gen R&C, but stopped playing so I could do the others.

On VC this week is Megaman!!! and Neo Turf Masters.  Wiiware has Midnight Pool, which is cool on cell phones.

Yeah, I saw that, MO, when I cruised back through (wish I had done that earlier...I'd forgotten about the d-pad sneak thing).  I guess it didn't strike me as quite as earth shattering as it did others.  The whole thing with
Spoiler for Hiden:
the boss and her double agent deal was very nicely done, but I can't say it was a surprise.

You realize that the end of MGS3 throws a monkey wrench into the whole story of MGS, right?

???
...
Explain.

EDIT TO ADD: I went back through this forum, are you talking about
Spoiler for Hiden:
the whole black and white are really shades of grey thing?  That was more of a subtle undercurrent than a blow-the-hinges-off-the-door, turn-the-world-on-its-head thing.  I feel like that greyness has always been there, to a degree.  Very few characters are mustache-twirling pure-evil bad guys throughout, but even if you just look at MGS3, the Boss is a nice, complex character right from the beginning, and that makes her a difficult "villain" to dislike entirely.  She's fairly clearly got some opposing motivations going on, even from the early parts of the game.

I'm finishing up Chapter 7 right now so I'm getting there biggrin

The fighting may be somewhat simplistic, with some annoying bits here and there, but using Heat moves totally redeem a mediocre fighting system!  Forgot how cool it is to choke a dude with a golf club...

i was really glad i finished it - one of the most memorable action/adventure ps2 games, imo. great story, characters, & especially great villains, with goro majima, the guy mark hamill does the vocals for, in particular smile (&, according to the wiki entry, he does make a reappearance in y2)...

How long did it take you?

I was cruising along, but then I hit Chapter 4, when the city opened up, and things slowed down a lot.

I feel like I'm mostly overpowered (certainly in street fights), but I'd hate to plow through and start getting my ass handed to me.

Still working my way through the first one - trying to get it done before this one comes out.  And then hopefully they bring the prequel stateside for the PS3...

I am, too.  I forgot it was coming September 9!  Holy crap, that's soon.
