The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai was great when the demo came last year (it was a community game, originally).  I'll probably get that, Hasbro Family Game Night, and UNO Rush.

I might do Flock, but the others aren't doing much for me at this point.

As Caine mentioned, the graphics and controls are decent enough.  The repetition killed it for me, though.  I was bored way before I got to the end of the demo.  And for, what $20?  $30?  It just didn't seem worth it to me.

IGN gave it 6.7/6.8 on 360/PS3.  Not sure what makes the .1 difference.  For both, they said:

Tom Clancyís HAWX is very close to being a great game; itís just missing a few of the intricate pieces that create an enthralling experience. As it is the mission design is lacking, the combat is unimaginative, and the multiplayer is shallow. Still, there are plenty who will be able to enjoy soaring 40,000 feet above the earth destroying dozens of enemy planes. All the while belting out lines of Danger Zone. Thatís not weird, is it?

On the other hand, GamesRadar gave it an 8, and their sum up sounds like it should have been higher:

Quote
HAWX is exactly what you want from a flight combat game. Itís instantly accessible without pandering to thickies, it leaves it up to the player whether they want to use a more advanced control scheme (but cleverly incorporates the two), and the missions are varied and exciting. Ubisoft Bucharest has obviously learned one hell of a lot from the underwhelming, period dullathon Blazing Angels, making HAWX leaner, meaner and more addictive. Itís our current flight combat game of choice.

I'm all for more mature games on the Wii, but I've seen a couple of previews for Madworld now, and it looks kind of...boring. Once you get past the "ohmigodlookatallthatblood" there doesn't look to be much game there. You seem to run around aimlessly in a contained environment just killing guys over and over again. Hopefully I'm wrong because the Wii could use a good core gamer title to get the ball rolling.

X-Play had a video preview of the game on Monday and I didn't come away very impressed. It looked like a below average beat-em up with unique graphics. I hope I am wrong.

Yeah, that was one of the previews I saw.

Hey if it doesn't pan out there's always the recently released House of the Dead Overkill.  slywink thumbsup

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic.  HotD:O is a really great game.

Nope, not being sarcastic at all. People were expressing a desire for mature rated games for the Wii and I think HotDO is an excellent choice and a great game.

DEMO is out on Xbox LIVE now. Spmeone tell me how it is till they give us a PC demo.

Do you read before you post, Daehawk?  icon_wink

Reading is for wankers and people who want to be on topic.

Exactly.

By the way the demo came out today.

any impressions?

I'm really getting tired of impressions not showing up until the 2nd page.  Once again we have a thread full of conjecture and repetition but not a single helpful comment with impressions from someone who has actually played the demo.   disgust

Well, maybe if the demo was out, there would be some impressions.

Wait a minute...Why you I oughta...! 

I just found out that the Dark Athena campaign is a whole 10 hour game in and of itself, so maybe I'm back to being interested.  From what I played, it's not going to be as groundbreaking as the first one was, but it seems like a decent enough game.  Price point is going to be a factor here.  I'm also wondering if I have to play through the first game again to get to the second one.

One thing that I meant to mention of my play through is that Vin seems to deliver every single line like it's a tough guy bon mot.  You know with that smirky, aren't-I-clever-for-a-dumb-killing-machine kind of deadpan.

Another thing is that the widescreen seems to be doing that slight fisheye thing that happens when they port a standard def game to widescreen (though I could have sworn Butcher Bay was widescreen).

I'll be interested to hear other impressions, too.  For example, it's entirely possible that I just didn't pull off any stealth kills because I'm inept.  It didn't seem like there were enough shadows to me, but I may have missed opportunities.  Also, I thought the vision mode made the bad guys stand out a little more.  I had a hard time seeing them at times.

For some reason I care quite a bit about achievements on the 360.  But I don't care at all about trophies on PS3.


Does that make me an Xbot?



I'm more or less the same.  Though I wouldn't say I don't care at all about trophies, I definitely prefer achievements.

I may have something to do with the me-too aspect of it, or the fact that achievements are in every 360 game but only some PS3 games have trophies.  It may have to do with the structure, in that every 360 game has 1000 points, XBLA games have 250 and expansions can add, IIRC, 100 more points.  Trophies seem willy-nilly.   I think it's more reward and response, though, in a Pavlovian sense.  I like the icon that pops up for achievements and the sound that goes with it.  It seems easy to miss getting a trophy.

I understand that it's all subjective.  But I don't have any issues with the controls.  Certainly not enough to go messing around with my video settings.

I think the point is that it may not be subjective.  There may be an issue that is affecting some people and not others.

other than the initial release of Lair- which I cannot remember if it could initially be played w/o 6axis- I cannot think of a single PS3 game where not having sixaxis would be a game stopper.

6axis control was absolutely mandatory in Lair - why it got murdered in reviews. And look, another game that forces 6axis control and it's been harped on constantly for its controls. Anyone sense a pattern here?

Well, okay, but the sixaxis in KZ2 is very minor.  It could be taken out and nothing about the main gameplay controls would change.

And for Lair, when they finally added more traditional controls, the game still sucked.

Some quick impressions after my 1st 3 missions. No surprise, I'm loving the game so far. Firstly, as you'd probably expect the production values are very high; cut scenes are damn impressive, character voices are great and the stories opening up nicely. The sound effects and music are very good and as expected there's the orchestral tunes we've come to know and expect from a Halo game. There's been the odd moment when the graphics slowed down and 1 time when the textures were less than perfect, but other than those they've been excellent. The 1 caveat is that the last mission, which I barely started before taking a break, is on a different planet and the opening location didn't look as good as the previous world.

So far the game mechanics and gameplay are great, leaning much more towards fun and entertaining as opposed to challenging and strategic. The game hand holds the player through the 1st 2 missions, clearly indicating where to go and what to initially build. That isn't too say you don't have to be strategic and logical, but that it isn't nearly as difficult as most RTS games; certainly the majority I've played on the PC. Being very much the novice RTS player, as I expected I'm not tearing up the game with my strategic prowess. So far I've scored 1 silver medal and fallen just short of silver twice and that was on normal difficulty. I can't imagine many people struggling with the early missions unless they've never played a RTS before. No doubt the more strategy game savvy GT'ers like Deno will get gold on most of the missions.

Anyhow...more later.

When you say "last mission," are you talking about of the whole game or the last one you played?  If the former, how long is the game that you came so close to finishing last night?

As mentioned on the front page, the Dark Athena demo is up today on XBLM.  I was a suprised to see it!

Downloaded pretty fast, but I haven't had a chance to play it yet.

When is it supposed to be coming now?

EDIT: Well, I played through the demo.  It's not as impressive as it felt on the Xbox, but I suppose that's to be expected.  The controls are still smooth, but advancements have been made there, too.  I couldn't really pull off a stealth kill (though I missed an opportunity at the beginning).  There is a drone segment that is basically suppsoed to be less stealth-oriented and more shoot every damn thing to clear a path.  But since the stealth was lacking in the rest of the demo, it didn't feel terribly different.  Well, okay, you don't have a gun before you get to the drone and there's a red hud, but compared to the rest of the gameplay, it didn't feel terribly different.

I guess I'm not quite as excited.  Especially if the majority of gameplay is the first game (can't remember what the percentage is supposed to be now).  It doesn't seem bad, it just didn't grab me.

Destructoid is feeling your controller issues.  Well, not yours, CeeKay...

Iíve been playing Guerrilla Gamesís Killzone 2 for over ten hours, and I still canít rip off a Helghast head without having to resort to strafing. I canít pinpoint my control-related issue, but I know that others are feeling my pain. Yesterday, we ran a story related to this subject. Guerillaís producer, Seb Downie, seemed adamant when he said that no changes would happen with the current control method: ď[Guerrilla Games] have come to the conclusion that there are no changes required to the [control] system.Ē
Today, he sang a different tune -- in bullet point format, no less -- in a post on the official PlayStation forums. He wrote (the stress is his) that Guerrilla is still analyzing the control method. If they find a problem, theyíll fix it:
Okay, before I start crying.

1. We have not decided if we are going to do anything to the controls.  We are investigating.

2. If we change them, we have not said how.  No reason to get upset.  We are not going to turn them on their head.  It would not be sweeping changes.

3. Any potential changes made will be carefully analyzed and tested to ensure they do not negatively affect players who do not experience any issues.

Are many of you experiencing issues? Iíve been told on numerous occassions that it takes time to get used to. Time happened, and I'm still a sad panda.

Takes a few hours, sure, but I find the controls to be virtually perfect for an FPS.

But I do think the people who complain about the controls are whining way too much... it controls and plays fine.  Great graphics and animation.

It's a stretch because it's a personal opinion.  Ok then!

I like my pizza with chicken and onions.  It's the perfect pizza in my mind.  Are you going to say I'm wrong with that opinion?

I think the stretch was getting from "Takes a few hours" to the controls being "virtually perfect for an FPS."

Well, it does take a few hours because they're different from the FPS norm.  After getting used to them, they're fine.  It becomes second-nature.  I have zero problems with the controls.

I don't disagree with you, dep, I'm just pointing out where the stretch came in.  For a lot of people, controls that take hours to familiarize yourself with are not perfect for an FPS.

I'll say that I think they're fine for this game, but I don't think I'd like all FPS control schemes to be like this.

The Platforms bar brings up a list of the top all-time reviews for the system, not just the most recent.  You have to manually sort it to get to games released within the last month. 

True, but the same thing was true for the old site; games that were listed when you 1st accessed 'The Rankings' were the all time top scorers for all platforms. You still had to select platform and the 'sort by' drop down if you wanted to get the most recent for any given platform as the sort order always defaulted to 'best to worst'. The other site did seem to recall your previous settings if you hadn't deleted your cookie, so maybe that's what you're finding different. I don't know if that recall feature is true for the new site.

But on the front page, without having to go into The Rankings, they had recent reviews broken down by platform.  It was very useful, and I checked it daily.  I think it was updated several times a day, too.

This thread makes me feel old.

All of these great debelopers gone.  God, there were some good games.

Origin, Bullfrog, Looking Glass...I think I had to upgrade my PC for something every one of them put out.  I especially remember wondering what the hell a "pentium" was, but knowing I had to have it for Magic Carpet.  Imagine my utter dismay to find out I had to get a whole new PC.

I loved old Sierra stuff, too.  Microprose was great, but most of their stuff was too sim or strategy for me (though I'd still by all of them).

I'd add Westwood Studios into that mix, too.  Not so much for C&C as Legends of Kyrandia and Lands of Lore (and a little bit Blade Runner).  And, though they're not technically dead, I miss the old Interplay, too, though maybe more as a publisher.  Descent, MDK, Stonekeep, Carmageddon, Castles, Star Trek 25th Anniversary...  Hell, I'll just say I miss Infocom, too.

There was something about the boxes for all these games that was appealing.  They were branded (I can still picture that red, fading Microprose logo), which was smart marketing, yes, but it also let you know what to expect, and it got you excited.

EDIT TO ADD: I just went on an hour long trip down memory lane.  Mostly it was because I couldn't remember the name of an action/adventure horror game that I loved and who published it.  I finally tracked it down and again it was from Interplay: Realms of the Haunting.

Blech.   thumbsdown

Yeah, I only just started looking into it.  The main page is kind of useless now.  The search section is lumped into that "Best of All Time" section, too, and it's more streamlined, but there are fewer filters.

I still prefer it to Metacritic, if only because it goes back further.

Littlest Pet Shop: Spring

Not that I will be getting it since I have no kids nor DS, but I believe someone responsible for this is a member on OO. Butterknife I believe is the name.



What's the matter with that? I'm pretty sure that's why people around here keep buying Rock Band games.

By the way, thanks bunches, and make sure y'all keep that up.   thumbsup

It's time to come clean. 

No one like Rock Band.

Or anything Behtesda cranks out. 

I, for one, am tired of supporting you jackass losers just because you exist virtually in some glorified AOL chat room I use.

I bought this a while ago, hoping the mics would be straight-forward USB.  They aren't.  I returned it.  But only because it's not my thing.  It seemed very well polished and cool, and perfect for fans of karaoke.

I'm starting to suspect that there's more to the controller issues than just difference of opinion.

For the upcoming patch, Guerilla has this note:

Controller Issues -- We have not stopped looking into the complaints and will see what we can do about it. Any possible changes will have to be carefully implemented and tested before being deployed though.

Maybe some people are having problems that others aren't, and it isn't just down to taste.

Either way, they're looking into it.

Never mind those great reviews.

Closing Comments
Neil Patrick Harris, videogame-themed jokes, easy Achievements, and Will Arnett? I wanted Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard to be good, but it just didn't happen. It's not bad, but it's nothing you need to be paying $50 for. The story isn't there, the gameplay is tedious, and there's nothing visually exciting about this one. There are a few laughs here and there and some Achievement padding, but this has "bargain bin" written all over it.

I may still pick it up when it's sub-$20.

I've been reading up on the multiplayer portions this afternoon.  It seems assbackwards to have to unlcock the different skill classes.  I could see improving your weapons or giving perks as you level up.  But only limiting new players to one class seems like a strange decison.  It seems like new people are going to have a tough time not getting their asses handed to them by people who have been playing for a few weeks. 

The class thing seems dumb to me, too.  But I guess it will have the added benefit of weeding out the newbies and giving the dedicated a game to really get into.  I'd rather have more people playing my game, but maybe that's just me.

Sold my opened, but never played gimped PS3 copy of the game for $32 on eBay last night.

Thanks Bethesda *thumbs up*

I can't interpret this post.  You sold for a loss without ever playing it?

Partially true.

Also, since I own a 360 now, there's really no reason to own a copy of an inferior product DLC and playbility-wise.  Liiiike, why would I continue to own a casette version of Future Sex/Love Sounds by Justin Timberlake if I just bought a cd-player?

I mean, I want to play it, and I'm sure the $32 will pay for a platinum collection version of it down the line...and I have pretty much zero gaming time to devote to it.

So, Thanks TML *thumbs up* might have been more appropriate?  slywink

There was some kind of update today.

Well it's mostly to allow me to play through some of my backlog slywink.

I really want to get back into Fallout3 which is far too different (at least to me) from COD to allow me to flip back and forth.

I also have Ninja Gaiden II (10.00 FTW) that is unopened. Would also like to finally get my money's worth out of Orange Box (I'm like 1/3 through half life 2).  Then there's the SP in BF:BC. And even the SP in COD5.  And I suppose I should play some Mercs... ANd I'd like to finish Dead Space. Oh and Braid. Also Condemned.  Oh and some achievements in L4D.  Also, Godfather 2 is coming out this month. I think. Also I need to re-rent and finish Mirror's Edge.

And then there's Resistance 2 on PS3...ugh...

Oh and God of War 2 on the PS2.

Did I mention my DS?  There's.... Tongue

Edit: And I may want to rent Killzone...  icon_lol

Did you get NG2 for $10 at Best Buy?

I tried to do it, but they didn't understand the deal (or corporate caught on to the people abusing the deal).

I think the key word is "gimped."
