I don't know if this has to do with the 20 song pack or not, but I noticed that Tribe is available again.  I think I saw some other independant bands from RB1 on there, as well.  Cool!

I've only been able to play a bit due to "working from home", but I can say that the game is absolutely gorgeous.  Also Normal feels too easy.  I think I will restart on Hard.  Also I think Marcus moves slower than in Gears 1.   I might just be used to Fallou 3 and Resistance 2 move speed though.

I had the same thoughts.  Except I'm playing on casual and think I'll hit Normal.  The last one was kind of brutal at times, so I wimped.  Does anyone know if it gets really tough down the road?

Bullet Witch meets Devil May Cry is exactly what I was imagining.  I think it could be a lot of fun.

Just watched the trailer for Bayonetta.  Looks like goofy action fun.  Or it could be terrible.  Hot chick action, though, assuming you like 'em in glasses.  There is one shot in the trailer that borders on hysterically obscene*.  However, it does give evidence of exactly where this game's heart lies.

Bobby pins!!! I'm almost out of them and can't seem to come across them. Where can I find these little wonders?


i have been on about a dozen all through the game,its been swings and roundabouts for me,just when i break a few,luck will have it i then find a few....mainly in first aid boxes scattered about,i wouldn't mind finding someone who sells them though

Anyone know if there's an unbreakable bobby pin like the ubreakable lockpick in Oblivion?
13132  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resistance 2 Impressions on: November 05, 2008, 11:34:52 PM
I've only played the Prologue and first level, but, while I like the game, I fear that some of the things that made the first game unique are gone.  In building order, they are:

1) You can only carry two weapons at a time.  Not a huge problem, as I most generally only used a couple of weapons in the last game, pulling out specific others for specific situations.  The weapons are the one of the most entertaining aspects of an Insomniac game.  So far, R2 is no exception.  In the last game, though, I found the carbine and the Bullseye to be nearly interchangeable.  The carbine seems much more bad-ass this go round.  The Auger is much improved, too.  And I love the magnum.

2) The segmented health is gone.  Maybe this is something that'll be reintroduced later, but I'm not sure why it wouldn't be there from the beginning.  I liked the last system.  It added a bit of depth.  Now it's just shoot/hde/ecover like every other damn game since Halo.

3) Apart from the nice radio bits that Turtle mentioned and a few scattered cars, there's no sense of the time period.  One of the things that made R2 unique was the alternate universe WWII setting.  Hale's uniform is very bland standard futu-soldier stuff (with some pretty bad textures, I might add).  There's no clanking of ammo and canteens as he runs.  Even the human weapon magnum (which I still like) has uber-powers and a cool, but unnecessary red glow.  I liked that Hale was using standard ordinance against these horrifying creatures.  I don't really feel that anymore. 

Still, the story and set-pieces seem to be amped up, so that's something.  I've liked the boss battles so far.  I haven't had the sound issues Turtle mentioned and have generally known where to go next.  There have been some glitches already, though.  My companion fell down into a ravine toward the end of the prologue.  I think I may have missed some direction there, but I still heard him give me a command as I came upon the final objective.  I was able to finish the level without any trouble

Overall, it's good.  Definitely a AAA title.  It just probably won't be the best AAA title released this season...or even this week.

Sorry for the bog down of the thread.  Semi, as to your age, you have my respect, you old hippie.   icon_wink

A separate topic for levels might not be a bad idea.  GamesRadar just put up 10 you must play: http://www.gamesradar.com/f/10-littlebigplanet-levels-you-have-to-play/a-20081104165827244072.  I also have been going through this: http://www.thesixthaxis.com/2008/10/07/cool-lbp-beta-levels/, but I'm waiting for a better ranking system to appear.  The shots semi posted give hope, at least.  As it is right now, though, it's borderline useless.

Thanks for the tips on the ants, guys.  I tried ranged combat, but I can't seem to do any damage before I get flamed.  However, I've been spending all my time using VATS on the antenners.  I was under the impression that that was how you took them out.  I didn't realize that it made them go after each other.  I imagine it only takes a hit to knock the antenna out, then I should focus on the head after that.

I may just head out and tackle the mines then come back.
13135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 impressions thread on: November 04, 2008, 04:33:30 PM
Honestly, I'm a little worried about this game now.  I just came across what I assume is supposed to be a fairly easy enemy
Spoiler for Hiden:
(those damn fire ants)
and I'm getting whallopped by them!  Also, the stimpaks don't give me nearly enough health.  I'm blowing through 3 or 4 in a battle, and my health is only hitting the half way mark at best.  I think I'm playing at the second easiest, too.

I've never bought a guide, but I've flipped through a couple before.  Doesn't using a guide spoil the game for you guys?

as others have said, it's all about how you choose to use the guide.  if you use every map and quest description to guide you through the game, it can definitely take something away from the experience.  in huge games like Oblivion and Fallout 3, however, i think the guides are a great way to learn about character creation and track your progress through the game.  i spent well over a hundred hours on Oblivion and used the guide as a way to mark off quests and locations as i completed them.  without the guide, it would have become difficult to tell which areas of the game i had already visited and cleared.  once i had explored and discovered a large portion of the game on my own (including completion of almost every quest), i used the guide to help me find some of the more unique and easily overlooked experiences that the game has to offer. 

if you don't want to spoil your experience, just be careful how you use the guide icon_cool

That's exactly the way I use it.  It's often like a bookmark.  If I go away from a game for a bit, the guide will remind me about what's going on.  Of course, with a game like Oblivion or Fallout 3, I have so many scraps of paper holding so many places, sometimes it's hard to remember which one I'm focusing on.

It's also a great way to keep track of what collectibles I've found.

I'll also use a guide after I've rooted through a place to see if I missed anything important.

Again.  It's a discussion.  You are handling the good all by yourself.  I'm not having the discussion with myself.  There are problems with FO3 as well, but those are being mentioned along with the praise in that forum.  Here, the negatives are being glossed over.  It's like you want everyone to drink the Kool-Aid, and I'm just trying to make sure we know what the Kool-Aid is made of. Honestly, the fact that you had to start a new thread to purge it of the negatives, and you keep asking me to keep the problems out of the discussion, make me wonder why you're so defensive about the game.

wow,... bullwinkle, as in that thread, i've run of of things to say to you. if you really can't differentiate between speculation about a game before it's release & impressions of a game that's been released, & what might make the latter a bit more relevant to people considering getting the game than the former, i have no idea how to repond - i mean, look around: it's the reason just about every major release gets an impressions thread on this forum, even if other pre-release threads exist...

the only kool-aid in my system currently's of the electric-acid variety, from long ago (& there's no way i'm suggesting everyone drink it smile ). i love the game - imperfect as it is, the positives far outweigh the negatives (like the floaty controls & difficulty level, both of which i've mentioned), &, yeah, & i'd encourage just about anyone to at least rent/try it. otoh, if you're personally comfortable with disparaging lbp's flaws without ever mentioning what (if anything) is good about the game (either taking it all for granted &/or leaving it to others), i say go for it (i'm assuming, btw, since you didn't correct me, that your previous post really was the first time you've said anything complimentary about lbp)...

again, i'm just (really) old school - if i'm actually enjoying a game, which is the result of a number of people's time & energy & effort, it's credit where credit's due first & foremost, & any criticisms second. that's just me - you're young, & have your whole life ahead of you, &, therefore, ymmv? smile ...

sack on, man...

Jeez, if I'm 41, how the hell old are you?

Yet, I keep getting the impression that instead of discussing the good and bad of the game, I should keep my opinions to myself.  I don't think I'll do that.

dude, correct me if i'm wrong, but this post is the first time i've ever heard you simply say something good about the game...

yeah, the controls are floaty (as i've mentioned), the gameplay becomes very challenging (as i've mentioned), the moving between planes is sometimes tricky, the community levels search engine needs work, etc, etc, etc. but, speaking for myself, it's not these negatives that keep me playing the game - it's the positives. yeah, the negatives detract from the over-all experience, unfortunately (my wife can't handle many of the levels past the half-way point), but i just don't think it's fair to lbp, or any game, that one continues to play (& presumably enjoy), to find only the negatives worth mentioning...

maybe it's just me, but i can't imagine hanging out on, say, the fo3 thread & only ever mentioning the game's flaws, without ever counter-balancing that somehow. i believe you give credit where credit's due - if the developer's basically showing you a good time, you acknowledge that. & then, if you've got a few bones to pick, at that point, fine - at that point, your criticisms actually carry a bit more weight...

if all i thought, or felt, was discussion-worthy about a game i was playing was what was wrong with it, with nothing there worthy of giving props to the developer, i'd probably be best off not playing that particular game. that said, i've personally got no problem with discussing the good and bad of a game...

littlebigplanet's far from flawless - but what it does right is pretty damn amazing, & certainly worthy of some praise from anyone actually enjoying it...

Again.  It's a discussion.  You are handling the good all by yourself.  I'm not having the discussion with myself.  There are problems with FO3 as well, but those are being mentioned along with the praise in that forum.  Here, the negatives are being glossed over.  It's like you want everyone to drink the Kool-Aid, and I'm just trying to make sure we know what the Kool-Aid is made of.  Honestly, the fact that you had to start a new thread to purge it of the negatives, and you keep asking me to keep the problems out of the discussion, make me wonder why you're so defensive about the game.

I've pretty much decided that I'm setting the main quest aside until I explore at least 2/3rds of the map.  Hopefully, I won't be TOO uber when I return to it.  It's just so damn easy to get sidetracked by some really, really wonderful quests.  Plus, the VATS system makes combat so much fun that I actually seek out fights now.  I loved Oblivion, don't get me wrong, but after a while I just started dreading fights. 

Be careful.  I did that for Oblivion (actually waited on the main quest until I'd finished exploring everything else), and while I was never too powerful (the challenge levels up with you), the main story became a little repetitive and boring (all those damn Oblivion gates...).

Quote from: wonderpug on November 03, 2008, 01:56:31 PM

The demo gave me a horrible first impression.

The way they show you the tutorial runner every single damn time you mess up is infuriating.  I should not have to watch 15 seconds of video every time I try to practice a 2 second move.  That was on the part where you have to jump for a bar to swing on.

A short while later I got to the part where they want you to jump on one wall, turn around, then jump onto a ledge opposing that first wall.  I did it on the first try!  Yay!  Wait, no.  I didn't do it the way the game wanted me to do it, so I get reset and watch tutorial lady do what I just did.  Again.  And again.  I still have no idea what I was doing wrong, because I turned off the game in frustration at that point.

Later I wanted to give the demo one more fair shake, and I skipped the tutorial to dig right into the gameplay.  I kept missing roof jumps from misjudging where the roof edges were.  The runner vision seems like a great way to show you potential paths, why not also give the player some help knowing when to jump to compensate for the first person perspective limitations?

Totally out on this one unless forum impressions are overwhelmingly positive.  So disappointing.

I had the same problem with the wall jump.  I'm chalking that up to it being a demo.  I get why they chose to make you watch "how to do it" each time you don't do it, but, yeah, that's damned annoying.  They should at least let you skip the demonstration if you don't need it.

I also wish the controls were mappable (maybe they will be in the full game?), but I was getting used to it by the end.

I think I was expecting more of a flow to the running (similar to AC, but with a little more interraction), but I still enjoyed the demo.  I may have to wait until next year to actually pick up the game, though.  I think I'll be waiting on reviews/impressions.

And I can't remember the last game that I could find no fault with whatsoever...

i've acknowledged that the game has faults (as do all games)...

but i also see those faults being far outweighed by what's good about the game (which is basically why i continue to play it)...

but, heck, if it makes you feel good smile :




You know, I guess I'm not clear about why, once again, I'm mocked and derided for expressing my opinion in a forum.

The game has a lot of potential, but there are some obvious missteps.  Things that were trumpeted in the other forum just haven't come to fruition, whereas a lot of my concerns are there.  

My main reason for posting the issues are that a) I love this style of game, so the things that keep it from it's potential as a blockbuster system seller can be frustrating; and b) the style of the game screams to the casual crowd, but I think the casual crowd would be very frustrated by the game, and they should know that.

For the recent post about the two-player sections in nearly every level, I do find it frustrating as hell.  They may be "optional," but you don't get the pieces to use in building levels if you don't do them, which is a very large part of the game.  There's also a large percentage number that gets shoved in your face as you complete every level, and those have been frustratingly small at times.  I'd love to have my daughter help in those sections, and I've tried, but despite its appearance, the game is just too hard for her.  She then gets frustrated that a game which looks so cute and appealing is way beyond her skill level.  I actually almost bought an extra controller so the whole family could play together.  Now I'm glad I didn't.

Yes, there are many good things about the game.  I am a collection whore, as I've said, and that button keeps getting pressed.  I'm plowing through the single player, but that's mostly to unlock as much as I can before I even attempt to build one of the levels I mapped out (which makes the enforced difficulty in getting those things unlocked annoying).  The game is cute and the style is nice.  The user-made levels have been better than I would have thought (though I don't like that I need to use my computer to find good ones, then type the ones I've found into the search engine, then hunt and peck to get to the one I'm looking for).  Maybe I don't go into the good stuff enough for your liking, but I do feel like that's been covered here.  

I guess it seems to me that a place for discussion (kind of the definition of a forum) should be open for opinions to be reasonably, you know, discussed.  A lot of times, a discussion is a back-and-forth where someone expresses an idea, and then another person puts forth an opposing idea, building on what's already been said.  Yet, I keep getting the impression that instead of discussing the good and bad of the game, I should keep my opinions to myself.  I don't think I'll do that.

Thanks.  This one is getting more and more intriguing.  I could use some 'cute' right about now.

There is one frustrating aspect of the single player.  So far, nearly every story level has had a two-player section with bonus items that you won't receive otherwise.  I'm starting the fourth section, I think, and each one has been doable with some awkward twisting and writhing of hands on another controller, but it's a little irritating, frankly.

Really?  I loved that first album.  I'll take anything from that, but, yeah, "Peaches" should have been on there.  I'd also take "Kitty on my Foot" or "We're not Going to Make It".

Man, the search engine sucks.  I've typed in all relevant words and you still have to spend forever searching for the right level.

Where is the GAF community?

Alternately, where's the best place to go for level reviews?

My only worry right now is that the demo really felt like it was on rails.  Most of the time it seemed like there was really only one way to go.  Now of course, almost all FPS games are like this (perhaps with the exception of FarCry, Stalker, Deus Ex etc) but in a game which gives you the ability to basically go anywhere you want (via climbing, jumping) it would be a shame if you simply jumped from one red ramp to another red ramp.

One thing I really liked about the demo was how natural the controls felt.  It all felt like second nature to me (with perhaps the exception of jump kicking).  Everything really just clicked for me.

I'm sure it'll be like Tomb Raider or Prince of Persia (though the new one is supposedly more open-ended, with multiple ways to get places), in that there will be only one way to get where you need to, but finding that way is sometimes a challenge.

For some reason, I feel more connected with Fallout 3 than I did with Mass Effect.  I never got past the first big planet in ME.  Time may be an issue, but I can see spending a lot of time exploring in F3

I accidentally got online last night, not really sure how. At first I thought the game had crashed because nothing was happening but since I could still get out to the XMB I waited. Waited some more. Almost ready to quit the game when it sprang back to life and there was someone else in my pod. Yikes! Intruder Alert!  icon_lol

Yeah, having someone in your pod is really creepy.  And it's hard to get rid of them.  And awkward.

*Cries*

I can't play online with people!

Everytime I seem to find a party to play with, or even with people on my Friends' list, it begins to load, apparently, but then it boots me back to my pod and says it ca't load all player profiles.

The most I have gotten far into mp is watching other people play (wtf?) and then it boots me off, saying again that it can't load player profiles.

frown

Anyone suffering from not being able to play online too?

Hope they fix this soon...

I haven't tried since the beta (having a bunch of people slowed things too much for my taste), but there are definitely still issues with doing anything online.

are there supposed to be many quests in the first town?? Only found a few, and is already more or less done with them, after about 2 hours game time all in all...and have the next lead in the "main quest"...me thinks me is missing something?

Even the Guide quest?  That seems to be multi-part.

There are not a ton in that first town, according to the guide.

Oh, this better come here.  Come on, we like platformers.

EDIT:  And then, 4 seconds later, I see this:

When I look out over the landscape, I wish to see only miles and miles of prostitutes accompanied by scores of men who look just like Huggy Bear. 

...at least in Chicago, I can get that.

and hey, it's already a wasteland too.  no need for a bomb there.




i keed, i keed.

But Chicago has nothing on Pittsburgh.  I know, I have to visit the in-laws there every Christmas.   disgust

 But I'm from Pittsburgh... crybaby

I'm going to address the elephant in the room.

Hey, jersoc, it's "The Beatles".  Not beattles.  Beatles.  B-e-a-single t-l-e-s.

That is all.

Of course, every music game Harmonix has put out has had new peripherals come out at the same time as well.

There is no way I would be able to resist a plastic Höfner violin bass peripheral.

Oh, and those peripherals for Frequency and Amplitude were awesome!  icon_razz

You mean you didn't get the special edition with the LSD cover? Man, that made those games so much better.  The cover is a peripheral, right?

It is if you lick it.

I'm now officially in, as I just got the game at Best Buy.

BullwinkleJ if you want to add me.

I find myself still crouching and jumping a lot, trying to increase those skills.  I have to keep reminding myself that this game isn't like Oblivion in that respect.
