hmm.. I go to Games Marketplace, browse All games, The Force Unleashed and it's there.  so is NFS ProStreet.  I also go to Game add-Ons, All Games and both are there.

edit to add:  I also go to the Games Marketplace and the SWTFU is in the next window over from 'Explore Gamer Content'.

It's before Browse All Games, it is the "game add-ons" then latest arrivals, or some such thing.


Where it's not, however, is under "New Arrivals - Game Add-Ons," and it should be there, being a new add-on.  The New Arrivals section is pretty much the only thing I check in Game Marketplace, and it doesn't get updated like the similar deal did in the blades system.  I'm sure they will fix that, but for now it's useless.

I assume this is what jblank was talking about, too.

Seriously: the only reason I haven't purchased Paradise at the myriad of $15-$20 sales this year is because of the insane lack of a "Restart Event" feature.  If that's going to be patched in, I'll buy it today!

Just ordered a Wii and Wii Fit for the family for Christmas. Also Picked up the Zapper  and a extra controller both coming with some more of those small games/tech demos. So what I need is some suggestions for a game or two. Mostly this will be used by my daughters age 20 and 14 with their friends. So what fun partyish games are out there.

Are there any fun shooters that are on the lite side that would be good with the zapper.

Any other style games that are most buys for the system.

Fun shooter on the lite side = Ghost Squad. It's a rail shooter with only 3 stages, but there are a ton of difficulty levels and branching paths. You also unlock new weapons which can change how you approach things pretty dramatically.

I'd ditto Ghost Squad, since it supports light guns and you already have a zapper. However IMO House of the Dead 2&3 is an even better and more challenging light gun game. It does have much more gore than Ghost Squad -albeit it's campy zombie stuff- so I'm not sure about how comfortable your 14 yr daughter would be with it. Like Ghost Squad, it will play just fine with the wiimote. I'd say by far that the best light gun enabled game is Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, but IMHO it'd be too difficult and gory for many 14 yr olds. On another note; if you looking to eventually get a 2nd light gun I highly recommend the Nyko Perfect Shot; superior in every way to the Zapper.

There's a new lightgun coming (I think from Nyko again) that looks even better.  I'll see if I can pull up a link later.

EDIT: Well, of course I can't find it now, but IIRC it had an A Button on the side.

I've just re-met the last character, and I've found out I'm only a little over half way through!  Ugh.  I'm want to start Chrono Trigger, but I know if I do, I'll probably never finish DQ IV.  I'mj enjoying the game, but I've hit the lull.  There's just a smidge too much grinding.  Especially now because that last character is woefully under-leveled compared to everyone else.

There's a tiny island that has some good experience on it, but does anyone have advice on ranking up a single character quickly?

The first Shellshock was made by Guerilla Games (Killzone 1&2, Liberation).  Shellshock 2 is made by someone else. 

Not according to Gamepspot.  They're both Guerilla Games games.  At least the Xbox versions are.

Guerilla is owned by Sony (and has been for several years now).  Eidos publishes Shellshock.  Shellshock 2 is being developed by Rebellion.

No need to get snippy.  Gamespot has them both listed as published by Eidos and developed by Guerilla.  It's probably just placeholder info.

If you guys aren't enjoying the fights you are doing it wrong.  You can win all normal AND boss fights simply by throwing the boss off the edge.  Often with hilarious commentary from the Prince.  I did one of the Alchemist fights in literally under 15 seconds by quickly maneuvering him towards the edge, quickly knocking him backwards when then threw him off.  It's the first time I think I've ever seen that the bosses in a game won't actually climb back onto the stage when you do that.

Edit: Oh, and my favorite combo so far is Jump -> Magic -> Gauntlet -> Jump -> Magic -> Sword.  It does a LOT of damage.

Initial encounters with the bosses, possible. The mini-bosses, definitely. The bosses in the final fights, very very difficult if not impossible. And stringing together combos with Elika, if done right, is impressive to look at and does do a lot of damage.

The fighting just feels stilted to me for some reason. Having just beat the game this morning I could have done without the mini-bosses (they were easy to kill and just became annoying) and half of the forced main boss encounters.

It was a fun experience all in all though.


The other problem comes when they fire up one of their "states" where only specific button presses will work (ie only X or B, etc).  The sword one isn't too bad, but the grapple requires you to get really close and they frequently hit you before you get a chance to use it.  And the magic one also needs you to get close, plus I've had a situation where Elika is unconscious when the boss goes into magic-only mode.  That's really frustrating.  Of course, none of these states are impossible to overcome, but they do bog down the fighting a bit, which takes away the fun, IMO.

I saw about a dozen games on that list that I might be interested in, but how many of those make it out next year and actually end up decent may be another matter.  Unfortunately several games I was holding out some hope for at the end of this year (like Skate It and Mushroom Men) ended up not reaching their potential. 

Skate It is actually pretty cool.  I'm still holding out hope for Mushroom Men, despite the 1Up review, but it does sound like it's a little too on the meh side.

I also thought that list looked pretty good.

I'm guessing the game is for iPhone or the Wii.  If this was for the 360, it would be a red ring of death coupled with an exclamation point....



Brilliant!!!

I played the demo of MGS and wasn't really wowed at all. Other games have better stealth mechanics, better graphics, better story, etc. I think the game came out too late in this generation's development cycle, and what would have once been truly cutting edge turned at to be another pack runner.

Having said that, I will definitely but a copy when it hits $30. I do enjoy the series.

Wait, what?

A) How can you make an assessment about the story from the demo?

and

2) How is a game released a year and a half into the console's life "late in the development cycle"?

Overall, I'm still really loving the game, however I've unlocked two powers, and I'm not loving the plate system.  First, I don't love that there is no indication of where the plate might take you.  It could be a nearby plate or somewhere incredibly far away.  When you're heading to the fertile ground, that's not a big deal, but as you try to collect orbs, it can be frustrating in planning where you want to go.  As a subset of that, I think the flying power is lame.  It's mostly on rails with moments where you have to flick the switch to avoid a wall.  The camera zooms around so much, that it's often hard to get your bearings on the first pass.  Also, I wish there were powers to unlock for the Prince.  Maybe there are.  There are some orbs that just don't seem possible to collect (though given the randomness of the plate delivery, I guess it could come from that).

I was worried about how the saves worked after (apparently) not being able to save during the tutorial section and getting 'glitched' requiring a restart. However now that I've made it to the Temple, it looks like it is a true 'save anywhere' system which is nice.
I'm actually kind of pissed about the infrequency of autosaves.  I'm not sure how it happened but after I was dropped from Live briefly last night (unfortunately happens a lot with my internet connection) the system seemed locked up while attempting to log back in.  Then I got a message that due to switching profiles (?) I was being returned to the main menu (without having been able to save obviously).  Well the game hadn't autosaved in about 45 minutes and I had to grab all of the light seeds in that area again. 

The autosaves really are shockingly infrequent.  And saving manually can take a very long time.  None the less, any time a game lets you save anywhere I'm happy.  However, I don't understand the save system.  It looks like it lists the date and time, but it's showing times that aren't even close to when I was playing.  I thought my 360 clock might be off, but I checked, and it's not.  I thought it might be play time, but that doesn't fit, either.  Honestly, it's confusing, and I've loaded the wrong game more than once.

Kind of funny that they didn't include any snow pants.

That's because Microsoft is a pants-optional workplace.

My complaint so far is that I see male characters wearing sneakers that aren't white.  Either they only allow white for female characters, or I've somehow missed the other colors.  White sneakers are sooo 80's!

Though, to think about it, if they add "girlie" shoes, probably the only choice for colors would be pink and purple, so, um... nvm!  disgust

Come on, Myto, admit it.  You customized your 360 in pink and purple, didn't you?  With little unicorns on it...

as much as i loved COD4,and COD:world at war..i am not as nearly as excited about this one,that modern combat 2 subtitle pretty much sounds like an add on,or maybe even going down Ghost Recon path(except 1st person),and just being more of the same
(especially when this type of game is more important for the online for me....which just means more maps really)

i would of preffered it to be called Call of Duty 5,as i'm fusy like that..this seems like they are trying to restart a franchise,when the franchise didnt/doesnt need to

and sci-fi direction?...good god no!!...you know where Halo is if you want that

TBH,not sure what to think..i grew up playing the first alot(on PC)bought the second for PC and finished it and then quickly rebought it for the 360(and stuck to the 360 ever since),and it just seems as though its going now in a direction that i dont want..it was nice for a one off to go in another direction,but for them(IW)to stick there,i was hoping they would bounce about(different wars,if people are bored with WWII...dare i say Vietnam)

medal of honor was a lot better last time round,so this will prolly be where i get my WWII kicks from now on,once [email protected] becomes old

but dont mind me,i am sure i will prolly warm up to this before its released disgust

I get the impression that they're restart as 2 franchises.  Modern and WWII which may lead to other eras...

I'm not sure what that sentence means.  Honestly, though, the voiceover community is surprisingly small.  Just using one example brought up earlier, the guy who plays Ratchet has also played Spider-man, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Gabe Logan from Syphon Filter, along with many other voices.  The guy who plays the Arbiter in Halo 3 also does Spawn, Julius from Saints Row, and Anderson in Mass Effect.  Ron Perlman played a lead in The Outfit, Gun, Narc, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction all in the same year and is the voice of Hellboy and Conan.  Hell, you've got Elijah Wood doing double duty as Frodo and Spyro.     I think it probably happens all the time and just isn't as noticeable.

COPIED FROM ANOTHER THREAD:

It really is a lot of fun.  There's a level polish to it that is incredible, and it seems to permeate everything.  Also, I love the colors.  I have a strong feeling this will get a lot more of my platforming attention than Tomb Raider: Underworld, and that's a good game.

As I thought, the run back through is through mostly different sections.  I'm a little worried that those sections may drag, but I'm unclear as to how many light balls you actually need to proceed.  Personally, I love the exploration aspect, so it won't bother me too much, but it might disrupt the flow.

There's a lot of dialogue, too.  The characters will go on for a long time, if you let them.  There's a vibrancy to their relationship that reminds me of the original next gen PoP (though it's not as pure as that).  It's quippy, yes, but so far, they've been pretty amusing.  I'm loving the donkey.

WITH NEW, BONUS COMMENTS:

I've belly laughed quite a few times at things the Prince has said (I wish there were still spoiler tags, so I could reference one about daughters and ponies).  The game is just oozing charm.  I'm less bothered by the Prince's voice (he's not branded as Nate in my head, just a voice I've heard many times before) than I am by Elika's look.  The hair, eyes and shirt all seem very modern to me.  Except for the whispy sleeves, there's little about her that fits the period.  They're playing fast and loose with the setting, so it's not a huge deal, but it stands out to me.

I've had one bug so far, where I got stuck on a vine while Elika humped my back.  After some jiggering, I was able to get out of it.  Hopefully, there won't be a lot of those moments.

I spent a long time last night trying to figure out how to get all the light orbs in the first place I visited, but it turns out that's not possible.  You have to unlock moves first to get some of them.

I'm glad the SE or CE or LE, whatever it is, came as a free upgrade, because the bonus stuff is pretty worthless.  None the less, I'm loving the game.

At first I was like "younger, studlier Sam Fisher?  No thanks" but then you mentioned setting it in the 70s.  And that would be damned cool because just setting anything in the 70s makes it cooler. 

Meh...I was a kid in the 70's, it wasn't that cool; even though I was. Tongue As much as I like the idea of a SC in one of the cold wars more...umm...frigid decades, I'd wonder what tech they'd put in the game.  My concern is that in a decade for which even the microprocessor wasn't really in use until the very end, a SC game could end up being a James Bond like gadget fest. One of the things I like about SC is that, apart from the sticky cameras and electronic jammer pistols, there's an element of believability. If they could somehow set it in the 70's without farfetched gadgets or too much modern and unbelievable technology it really could be cool.

That's what would make it more interesting to me and one of the big reasons that I liked MGS3 and it's 60 settings.  Taking away all of those fancy gadgets served to make the game much more interesting. 

That was my thought when I mentioned it.  It's not like they didn't have people doing Fisher's job in the 70s.  I agree it shouldn't be Bond gadgety.  In fact, I'd like to see it very bare bones.  Stealth the old fashioned way, you know?

Not sure whether they dumped the concept or not but it's definitely being totally reworked. 

Well, if they decide to go with a younger, studlier Sam Fischer, they better set this thing in the 70s.  That could be damned cool, though...

Latest that was revealed was that it was Ubi Montreal doing SC5 but obviously not the Farcry 2 team, PoP team, Assassins' Creed team, etc (Ubi Montreal is huge).  However it looks like SC5 was pretty much scrapped and sent back to the drawing board so I'm not sure anyone outside of Ubi knows what it's status is or who's handling it now. 

I hope it's not Ubi Shanghai though- while I did enjoy SC 2&4, they weren't nearly as good as the others. 

sc ct also stands as my favorite of the series.  i do need to pick up the xbox 1 version of da though.

I was glad to hear they dumped the concept for the planned next SC installment.

I'd like to make a prediction.  There are six stores "near" me on the Best Buy store finder, but only one that is truly close.  I have the SE pre-ordered there.  So far, two of the six have it.  My bet is that my store will not have the game by the end of the day, but the other 5 will.  Then, tomorrow, they will get in the regular version, but not the SE.  Then, when it finally arrives according to the inventory control system, they will have no idea what I'm talking about when I present my pre-paid receipt, and I will have to wait a minimum of a half hour for them to track it down.  Then the game will explode in my 360.

I wish I were just waiting at home for it to arrive.

Shortly after posting, the website showed the SE as being In Stock.  Which means my plan worked.   ninja

Disaster: Day of Crisis is another one- released this fall in Japan and EU, import reviews were pretty promising but NOA has yet to confirm that they will release it in America (despite already being fully localized) and hinted that they would only do so if it sold well in other territories (it hasn't).

Actually, the previews were promising, but the reviews haven't been that great.  It's only got a 68% on GameRankings.  Gamespot just published a review, 5.5/10.

Wielding more Wii Remote-waggling moves than you can shake a quake at, Disaster's lack of clear gameplay focus has resulted in a game that is competent at best and never compelling.

The Good
Awesomely cheesy story   On-rails shooter sections are fun.

The Bad
Too easy   Tries to do too much   Driving sections can be frustrating   Lacklustre graphics and sound.

Eurogamer gave it 6/10, and the lack of focus thing comes up again:

Quote
If it had just been a bit more focused, perhaps sticking with the pleasing interchange of third-person exploring and first-person on-rails shooting, it would have succeeded. But the frenzy of different genres is only confusing, not letting any one element shine. Also: EAT MY BALLISTICS!

But I agree that NOA seems to be dropping the ball, while claiming they are frustrated with the corporation's choices.

I saw a link of the top 10 games played on Xbox Live during the last month.  Surprisingly Halo 3  was back on top.  Followed by Gears 2 and Cod 5.  I think L4D was 8th.  Hopefully L4D doesn't suffer the same fate as Team Fortess 2 on the 360. 

7th, but yeah.  Of course, it was released a little later than the other games, so that could be a factor.

Well I've already gotten my 4.99 out of it smile  If you just play through the levels willy-nilly it's not so great, but the real addictiveness comes when you start trying to make your line as long as possible and trying to save ALL of the people on the map.  I see from the high scores that some people have saved every single person on the map AND done it all in a single line!  That seems impossible to me.  I'm on the third map so far (National Monument) in Washington DC but I really dislike it because there are so many trees so I think I'm just going to try to get the bare minimum possible so that I can open up the next level. The first two levels were a blast however.  I wish this game had trophies-that would put it over the top.

You know, I fired it up again, and realized that that third level drove me away for a bit (then I got distracted by the other games).  Kind of a PITA with the monster-hiding trees, but I only tried it a few times and kept trying to save as many as I could.  However, it made me worry that the difficulty was going to ramp up pretty hard and fast.
