The learning curve is fairly steep and requires some time investment.  I found these tips, from the end of one of the FAQs, helpful:

Newbie Tips from Qt3 (yes, there is no number 4)

Bold face mine. Also, don't buy maps early on.  They expand the amount of universe known to you, and then your missions can send you to those farther reaches, costing you valuable time and money.  While you build your cash reserves early on, keep your known galaxy small.

There's a lot learn, but there's a lot to do, and its great fun.

Thank you for that.  Extremely helpful.  I now feel like I can start.

There was a really good FAQ on OO I will try and dig up.

And I do hope Impulse starts really expanding their catalog...Thankfully it looks like some developers are starting to get on board.  Not that it is really big or anything but Tilted Mill stuff is not on there day one, like Hinterland and that new civil war game they did.

Edit...found that thread on OO, really great info in here:

I think SL summed up the evening with the constant refrain:  Ridiculous.

One of the great things about Versus is that you can have just as much fun watching how the opposing team takes you down.  There was a moment before the cornfield where we were keeping our eyes on the car carrier and a Boomer puked on all of us from behind a tree across the road.  Brilliant.  At moments like that, I wish we could have open communication to say, "Well played, sir" or something less pompous.  And that happened a bunch of times last night, not just that once.

I've turned into a mostly casual gamer on my PC (ie lots of little games like the stuff at Big Fish Games).  Since moving to consoles, I rarely have time to sit at the PC.

I bought this game on a whim.

I've sat for hours straight already, and I'm just getting started.  I love this.  Best PC game I've played in forever.

I just wish I could play it without the DVD in the drive (should've bought it through Steam, I know).

Final Verdict 
After playing through this holidayís outstanding selection of co-op games, I have to give the nod to Left 4 Dead for providing the most consistently enjoyable experience. Left 4 Dead hits all the right notes. Itís easy to pick up and play, but develops by stages as new weapons and enemies are introduced. Teamwork and player interaction are vital, and add to the satisfaction of clearing a stage. The minute details create an organic setting that feels uncomfortably real. Each chapter fluidly escalates to a crescendo of gore-drenched fury as the players struggle to hang on till their saviors arrive to whisk them away to safety. By the end of it, you feel a real sense of camaraderie with your teammates. The only negative anyone could come up with was wanting more. Propers to Valve for creating the best co-op experience in a holiday season crowded with top-notch titles.

http://www.gamesradar.com/f/whose-co-op-is-best/a-20081210102356489020

It sounds like that guy hasn't played Gears 2's hoard mode with 3 other friends.  IMHO it does most of those things bettar than Left 4 Dead.  Plus it offers co-op through the entire campaign and full bot support for all of the other multiplyer modes.

It's not a guy, it's a team of 10 people.  The first thing they talk about in the GoW2 discussion is Horde mode, even comparing it to Helm's Deep.  They say it's great.  But there are some drawbacks.  And there are comments that co-op in Gears 2 can be more difficult than single player.

Here are some specific summing up comments:

Quote
Gears has always felt as if it was designed from the beginning with co-op in mind, rather than just throwing a second guy into the action. The frustrating parts are over quickly so they donít really bother me much in the greater scheme of things. I think Gears is the first series to really get co-op right...

...Horde is really the shining star that Iíll go back to play again and again. Campaign co-op is good, but in the same way all co-op play has been since Halo. Horde draws you in and really creates new gameplay experiences based on how your team is clicking or not clicking. The well-designed maps are more open tactically and let you try more stuff, rather than just proceeding down another corridor to the next shooting gallery.

It's not like they're saying Gears 2 is bad.  L4D is a really polished package, very specifically designed for co-op, is all.

full list of BC games, straight from the horse's mouth

from this, i recommend
crimson skies - fun take on air combat with good action and humor.  still stands up pretty well graphically.
indigo prophecy - if she didn't play it on the pc, it's worth a shot here
dreamfall - same as above
conker's bad fur day - a raunchy take on the mario 64 style of game

the only problem i see is being able to find good copies of many games these days. 

i recommend the saints row games.  1 is dirt cheap, and 2 is a ton of fun and has co-op.  (i forget if it's split screen though)

So sad that it hasn't been updated in more than a year.

not really, but i do keep track of my kill count.

We're both tired of playing through the first 4 levels of each campaighn.  This game really could use more content. I'm not really interested in versus mode and I've played all of the campaigns at least 4 times each while technically only "finishing" one of them. 

Have you tried versus?  At least give it a shot.  It adds something new to the mix.

Also, they are planning on dropping new content.  Possibly even soonish?  Do I remember that right?

There is a newer Oddworld game - maybe even for the 360, but it's name escapes me now.  It has a character that looks a bit like Joe Camel, someone will know the name, lol.  The one I recommend, especially for anyone who isn't necessarily into shooters, is Munch's Oddysey for the original XBox.  It has a little of everything (even a bit of gore, but not realistic type yucky gore) and it's funny as well.

And you are right, going out is extremely overrated.  It's not bitterly cold and windy in Fallout 3!  Actually, it might be, but it's quite comfortable in my den...

Quote from: Turtle on December 11, 2008, 02:18:57 PM

The point is that it's still extra features on top of its expanding library of games, and increased functionality that firmware brings.

Sure, pimping some home space is useless, but so are space points tied to achievements, as are trophies.  Nevertheless, it's often still fun and still cool to try.  Because let's face it, even if you're not interested in achievements, I sure you've gone out of the way to get at least one.

No one would ever buy a PS3 just to use home, just like no one would by a 360 just for avatars.  Everyone buys based on a variety of features and games.


The main difference between achievements and pimping your Home apartment is that achievements are directly tied into playing a game, which most of use buy consoles to do.  Pimping your Home space really doesn't have anything to do with playing a game (unless games start supporting trophies granting in-Home items).  Moreover, when you get an achievement, it adds to your gamerscore.  Whether you actually care about this or not, it's a metric that's instantly accessible by anyone looking at your gamercard.  If I want to see your Home apartment, I have to boot Home and then load into your apartment and wander around.  I suspect most people will do this once, and then not again.  Accessibility is important.

So even if I have gone out of my way to get a particular achievement, I've done so in the context of playing a game.  If I spend an hour decorating my apartment in Home, that's not really the same thing.

Supposedly, there will be a place in your Home space where you can display your trophies, so you playing can unlock stuff for Home, in a sense.  But even if it gave me a couch, I doubt I'd rush into my space to see it.

Oh and, are you using the Grids?  When making anything that requires very exact fits and movements from parts, such as the supports for those stairs, use the grids.  I was having a ton of problems getting this piston, box, and magnetic switch setup working consistently since the I couldn't get the pistol aligned at a perfect 90 degrees, it would always end up off slightly and the friction and impact would eventually destroy the whole thing.

I am using grids.  Usually they work great and are very helpful.

Well, I've spent weeks on these damn stairs.  I'd hate to think of the time spent trying to put it together.  Finally, I just gave up and, using some dissolve material and a button, I now have them drop in from above.  It actually worked out really well.  Of course, as soon as I'd finished and moved onto the next part, I found the exact kind of stairs I was looking for in, sitting there available as an item in the poppit.  I laughed until the tears were all gone.

I've had a shift in my achievement attitude lately.  While I don't think I was ever someone who actively sought out achievements, I would pull up the list at the start of the game, just to see what to keep an eye out for.  Most games do a good job of hiding the spoilers, but it's happened, so I stopped doing that.  But I'd still try to be aware of what might be coming up.  Now, though, I much prefer the surprise of them.  Not knowing it's coming and getting that little bloop is a nice little smile in the middle of a game.

Dragon Quest Swords on the Wii was gorgeous...

How was the gameplay?

I'm curious too. I passed on it because all the reviews I read mentioned it was short and over simplified.

It was a good rental from Gamefly. Short, fairly simple, but entertaining. It's basically a puzzle "shooter" (yes, you slash and stuff with the sword, but it's essentially a modified form of FPS when you boil it down to the basics) rpg. Puzzle, because half the challenge is figuring out the best way to tackle each combat situation. Shooter for obvious reasons. RPG because you still have some rudimentary equipment and levelling up, though it's not a particularly significant part of the game.

It was fun to play through once, but not really something I'd want to purchase.

I was thinking it would be down to $20 (or even $10) by now, but it's still $40 most places.

FWIW, I've seen it at Best Buy for $20.  But yeah I was surprised by how much it was going for most places.  I actually paid $20 for a copy on Ebay and was waiting for it to arrive when I saw it in BB. 

I was going to check at BB this week.  It's not even listed on their site, which often means it's in the bargain bin.

You know, this came up for me the other day.  I was playing Left 4 Dead with someone, and he basically said, "Holy shit, that's some gamer score you've got there!"  I was flummoxed.  I'd never really thought about my score before.  I checked friends on my list, and my score is leaps and bounds above most of them.

I think it's because I play a lot of games.  Those little freebies in so many of them add up quickly.  Still, it's a little staggering.  Not 45,000 in less than a year, but closing in on 30K since launch is still pretty high, I think.

Quote from: Knightshade Dragon on December 10, 2008, 01:51:38 PM

To all of these endgame discussions I pose the questions that I put in my review:

More than any other Prince of Persia game, this title has more questions than answers.  The game takes place in Persia (at least that much is clear, voice acting notwithstanding), but little else is known.  Is this the same Prince?  Is his donkey Farah actually a donkey, or is this the Prince trying to find Princess Farah?  What about the gauntlet?  What it its origins?  Where did the Prince obtain it?  Is it a hold-over from Prince of Persia: Warrior Within or Two Thrones?  There is so much that is unexplained, and having completed the game I canít promise you that much of it will be any more clear at the end.


I think there are ties to previous titles based on the ending.  I think we'll find a lot of answers to those questions above in the next title.

Answers:  No.  A donkey.  It's a game device.  It was created to allow for gameplay (like the plates).  Somewhere in the past that let him use it for gameplay.  No.

Mostly I'm being goofy.  There may be something to the gauntlet.  In general, though, I think you're creating questions where there aren't any.

you have to purposely launch into it

at least they're doing something right.  that reminds me, I'll have to check and see if someone has done a NXE theme for the PS3 to replace my old 360 Blades theme.

I think they would have a massive revolt on they're hands if you had to use Home as the main interface.

Where did you find said Blades theme?

Dragon Quest Swords on the Wii was gorgeous...

How was the gameplay?

I wonder if this is a move of desperation to bolster PS3 sales for the holidays. Be interesting to see how functional things are.

Things are functional, just boring.

However, I'm not completely sure it'll bomb.  Second Life was HUGE, and I never played it more than a couple of minutes.  I know Home isn't my thing, but it's exactly right for many people out there.

On the other hand, Second Life worked on a system that people already had.  And, I'm guessing here, but I don't think the PS3's current install base includes the casual gaming crowd.

Never mind.  It'll bomb.
