I think the difference between this and FC2 is that RE5 is a fantasy/horror scenario while FC2 is, essentially, real-world.  Further, I think FC2 deals with the political unrest directly, putting you in the middle of warring factions - you get the sense that you're not going to fix the problem, and you're just being hired to take care of some specific situations - for every side involved, I might add.  They're killing each other, you're just there.

Now I haven't played more of RE5 than the demo, so maybe all of this is addressed in the gameplay.  Given past RE games, I tend to doubt it, but who knows.  They may be growing up.   

On a personal level, I don't have a problem with someone trying something like this at all, but, yeah, if you're going to set a game in Africa, have Africans charging like they're rabid at the white protagonist and ask you to mow them down, then you should expect some complaints and contoversy.  Eye roll icons don't change that.

I'm still willing to give the benefit of the doubt, having not played the game yet.  I'm not actually condemning them.  I do think that people have a right to wonder if the game crosses a line, though.

You do realize the people you fight are possessed by a parasite that controls their thoughts and behaviors, right? They essentially become "zombies".

More or less my point. I think the protagonists actions in RE5 can be more forgiven than those in Far Cry 2. In FC2 you're fighting exterminating people who could have consciously made another choice had circumstances shifted either way. Whereas in RE5 you're taking down an enemy that has less control over their actions than a severely brainwashed Hitler youth.

I get that, but the setting is still the setting.  You can't choose it and then be surprised when people complain, is my point.

Further, the pulp genres (sci-fi, fantasy, horror) frequently are used to dramatacise or satire problems in society.  Recently, there has been a shift to using those genres purely for entertainment, with no weight added to them, but that potential is still there, kind of imbued in the genre.  If you're going to choose a hotbed location, people's minds are going to start drawing parallels.

Again, I'm just pointing out that there is no need to be dismissive of folks feeling edgy around this stuff.  Hopefully, the game will come out, and it will all be handled properly.  But you can't just say, "Look, they're zombies.  This could have happened anywhere..."  The designers chose where to set this and what the zombies would look like.

Honestly, the fact that the real humans in FC2 made a bad choice makes them fairer game, in my gaming opinion (not necessarily the same as my real-world opinion).  Zombies are a sad lot, in the sense that they had their fate thrust on them.  Don't get me wrong, I'd still slap a bullet in one's eye rather than let one eat my brain.  I'm just pointing out the landmines of the genre.

What a horrible demo. It's the same old horrible controls, but now with some obliviously racist characters and situations!

Oh no, not this argument again. How is this game racist? Just because it takes place in Africa and the bad guys are African?

I know this argument has been rumbling for a while, but I have to say they chose to set the game in a racially explosive location.  There's going to be some backlash.

Also, I was surprised to find that I felt a little uncomfortable.

I just tried the demo on PSN and had a lot of fun with it.  I wonder why it scored so poorly with IGN?  I liked the simplicity.  I have NHL 2008 sitting here but I can't be bothered to learn all the different moves.

Their big gripe seemed to be that it's essentially a bonus mode in a full hockey game, yet they're charging 800 points for it.

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.
They seem to be following the same approach as the first round of closings.  Games drop at a rate of 10% per drop from full MSRP, and the drops occur every few weeks, capping out at 50%-80% off right before they close up shop.  When you get to 50%, pretty much everything of note will be gone so I wouldn't wait much longer.  40% seemed to generate "the rush," as several games I was holding out were suddenly gone once it got there.  If you're holding out for a hard-to-find item, I'd get it now.  Otherwise, wait a week or two and see where they're at in the price drop cycle and if there's anything worthwhile remaining.

Was your store at 40%?  Mine has been stuck at 20%.  I was wondering about the "every few weeks" part, to see if anyone has a more specific time frame on when the drops are occurring.  Sounds like it might be different everywhere, though.

Finished off Lost Odyssey today.  Liked it quite a bit, though I inadvertently out-leveled the final area, so it was pretty easy.  That was fine with me though, as I've always been of the mindset that if you spend the time to grind your levels up, you should be fairly godlike by the end (plus, we're talking about a bunch of people who've been around for 1000 years, they should be pretty damn good at fighting by now).

Now I just need to figure out what I want to play next.  I'm torn between Persona 3, Last Remnant, and Infinite Undiscovery.  I've been playing so much LO this month that I'm nervous that I'll start Persona and get burned out because of too much turn-based.  Of course, I've been really liking the turn-based stuff, so who the hell knows?  I'll probably pull a name out of a hat.

I thought their leveling system made it nearly impossible to get too far beyond the requirement for an area.

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.

Deadly Creatures - IN

Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers - See above.  Does anyone know if this is a completely different game or just a different title?

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.

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

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).

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.

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.
13113  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.

There is a new massive patch out today that adds restarts among other things. There's also a party pack, but I don't need that.

We've been talking about it.  The patch isn't out.

It looks like the patch is delayed.  Hopefully tomorrow.

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.

I just updated to 2.6 this morning but didnt notice anything different in the interface. Where does one actually go to access 'home' ?

It's right above the Store icon.

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).
