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.

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.

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.

I'm on my third.  However, this last time was not a RROD.  The video just crapped out.  I called customer support a number of times, hoping to get one of the extra-helpful guys who would do me a favor, but it just didn't happen.

On the extremely plus side, I was able to exchange my 360 at Costco!  And now, due to their extremely member-benefitting exchange policy, I can have an "instant repair" if it ever happens again.

I think if they'd made the runner vision draw paths for all the potential routes when you were under fire (but not when you weren't), it would have given you the "escape by the skin of your teeth" feeling during those sections, while maintaining the puzzle platforming element of the rest of the game.

That would have been a great addition.

Midnight Club: LA Being Patched to be Easier

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The biggest complaint that I hear over and over about Midnight Club: Los Angeles is that its just so groin grabbingly difficult that its not fun. While the series has always been hard, it hasn't garnered this much ire for being so unforgiving. So, Rockstar is going to be throwing a patch out at us that'll address this aspect. N'Gai Croal over at Newsweek has this interesting news.

Quote:
"Obviously, we like to listen to our fans," says Barrera. "We've done a bit of tuning on the dynamic race structure so that early on, it will be easier for novice players to get to the later races." Asked how they achieved this, Barrera says they wanted to keep it feeling natural, so they focused on how and how often the computer-controlled cars screw up on turns and intersections rather than on the rubber-band approach to A.I. that typifies many racing games. The tweaks, we're told, cover roughly the first third of the game.

I see what Semi is saying (and the repeated use of fur-tile was rubbing my ears the wrong way, too).  The whole buddy/romantic dialogue system takes a lot of the weight off of the story (although I also agree that it adds weight to the ending).  And because of the non-linearity of the worlds, there's no build to that romantic tension, really (though somehow they managed a little bit of it).  It's nowhere near as layered and slow building as Sands of Time.  However, it is snappy, amusing dialogue, for the most part and elevates the whole effort, IMO.

The graphics cannot be praised enough.  There haven't been a lot of comments about the art style (and the evolution of cel-shading which I, too, have always loved), but I think that's because it's a given.

I never really liked the fighting in any of the last gen PoPs, but this is worse.  Combos could be really amazing, but frequently you couldn't go into combo mode because you had to block after your first hit.  I also found that the game would put the boss into a non-Elika state after I had sent her their way.  Frustrating.  And the QTE button presses in the middle of button mashing fighting is just ridiculous.  The best things about the battles was that there weren't a lot of them, and you could usually tell when they were going to come.

It seems like there are sounds that come from the orbs, but they're pretty ineffective.  For the next game, I hope they implement a system closer to the one in Crackdown.  Or maybe you can have Elika guide you to them.  I ended with a number in the 850s I think.  The completionist in me would have liked all of them, but I spent way too long early on trying to do that and there were some that I just never, ever found.

The plate system is also a big weak spot.  I still don't get why there are three that boil down to the same thing (a jump, a longer jump, and a fly) especially since they can all be any length and send you off into any random direction.  The green one was okay.  These things disrupted the flow, to me.

But the flow is what really worked for the game, apart from the story (and graphics, as I almost forgot to mention again).  There's a rhythm to it that's really wonderful and gets me past the above annoyances.

I have a question on the ending, which I will ask with the reinstated spoiler tag:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Is it possible to just walk off, back the way you came into the place, maybe?  It doesn't seem right that they would let you just shut off the console with things left to do.  That's not really an ending that way.

It's not Nyko, it's Pelican, the Duo Shot. This is being sold as a Gamestop branded item in a pack with a wheel for 20 bucks.
It had been on sale for 15 until the 7th, but I didn't even notice the second trigger until you brought this up and I started digging around the net.

Yeah, I didn't get that either.  I'm loving the game (840 seeds collected and just three more grounds to clear) but the powers are probably my biggest complaint.  There really seems to be no identifiable difference between those two powers and I really hate the control on the yellow flying power.  I do really like the Green Plate power though. 

That's about my assessment, too.

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.

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'm sure that people would rather have a "real" Vietnam game, but that does sound interesting.  The original Shellshock didn't have great reviews, IIRC (just checked, and it's GameRankings score are in the 50s), and this is the by the same group.  My hope isn't too high, but maybe they'll pull it out.

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'm sure that people would rather have a "real" Vietnam game, but that does sound interesting.  The original Shellshock didn't have great reviews, IIRC (just checked, and it's GameRankings score are in the 50s), and this is the by the same group.  My hope isn't too high, but maybe they'll pull it out.

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.

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.

Well, the resolution's messed up and Killer Croc looks metal, but otherwise very cool.  I'm looking forward to this.
