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

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

Ha! That's funny... it would be even funnier if it wasn't possibly true.

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...

Yeah, I went through an optional chat where the Prince went through an I Spy routine. I was just rolling.

I just did that myself.  Good stuff.

Quote from: metallicorphan on December 04, 2008, 05:49:12 PM

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...

Pitch Black was a much better film, imho.  Chronicles had some great moments that could have been fleshed out, but they leaned too heavily on the "messiah" plot for my tastes.  Keeping Riddick an anti-hero without mystical overtones would've made the film much better.

Not just yho:  http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/pitch_black/  http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/chronicles_of_riddick/

Although I'm surprised that Pitch Black has as low a score as it does.  I thought it had been better received.

it's the first time a voice actor is actually functioning pretty much as an actor

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?

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

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.  
Quote
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.

Just watched the video on gametrailers.com.  As I imagined, this will be a rental,or possibly skipped outright.  The fact that you can't die, and that they force you to go back and basically repeat the level (in reverse) to get some orbs seems a little, well boring. 

I am with you on this.  Having to play the whole level in reverse to get the orbs, which are needed for the upgrades as I understand it, seems like a lame attempt to pad length.   Even though I have the game preordered I am waffling now and may bail altogether.  Drats.  This was my last bastion of hope for this year.

I haven't watched the vids, but if the retread is at all similar to what was done in the recent Wario platformer, it could work.  In each level there, you had to work your way in then race back out, but you took a slightly different path, so it didn't feel completely repetitious.

I'm actually all for the easy aspect of this game, as long as there's a flow to the gameplay/story.  I found the combat to be a mild PITA in previous games.  The platforming felt like the meat of it, but sometimes it was too brutal.  Like, not so much challenging as designed to F you up.

Standard HD would have no effect at t his point-  devs still have to to support HDD-less 360s since those SKUS are already on the market. 

I actually think the 256 internal memory is kind of a bummer- I'm strongly considering getting a second 360 so I can have access to the Netflix stuff in my living room but I would prefer the memory card so I can move my saves/profiles between my consoles.  Internal memory won't let me do that.

My history with this game:

1. Heard about it, thought the concept was neat.  Another game to look forward to.
2. Amazon has a pre-order deal for 48.00 shipped. I preorder
3. Demo came out. Played it once. It was fun, but unimpressive
4. I get around to canceling my pre-order too late. Amazon ships the game. I'm totally bummed. 48.00 out the window
5. I'm out of town so I can't play it. I get home, have a weekend planned to play it via the MP forum but am overwhelmed and exhausted from the trip. I don't game at all that weekend.
6. I finally recover and try to set up a match with a couple of GTers. Everyone's a no show until I'm too tired to play.
7. Finally get a game together with Bullwinkle and Spigot.  Have an absolute riot
8. Play with some randoms and have a great time.
9. Play tonight with DamgeInc and two bots.  Am blown away at how competent the bots are.  We spend an hour and 10 minutes working through the blood harvest campaign.  Neither of us knows where to go and we suffer some consequences like more respawns (we think) as we dally about trying to explore and figure out what's going on.  Our teamwork isn't all that sharp either as we don't fortify that well before the horde attacks.

We eventually radio for help.  We all defend the farmhouse bravely and the US Army shows up.  Damage runs for the APC and gets in. One of our bots is down in the distance. He's a gonner. I race toward the APC. I see another of our bots, Zoey,  get knocked down and open up on her attackers.  She's gonna make.....TANK Zombie attacks the APC and punches me 40 feet from the vehicle. I'm cooked I'm for sure.  But I manage to get back up and race to the APC emptying my gun into the tank that is now mauling Zoey...no avail. I say sorry! and get into the vehicle. Damage and I escape.

10. This is a darkhorse for GOTY.  I haven't even tried versus yet.  What an absolute gem so far.

Sorry I couldn't join you last night, SL.  Just wasn't up to it.  I needed to punch some things (having the Joker pound Batman into the ground helped scratch that itch).  I was a little cranky yesterday.  Sorry if I irked too many people.  I certainly didn't mean to create any nemeses.

I went through a similar experience as SL had.  The demo didn't do much for me, personally, but I took a chance on it based on reviews and impressions, and I can't believe I almost missed this game.  Moments like he's talking about at the end literally happen ALL THE TIME.  Plus it's just so well constructed and balanced.  It's a shame to see that point missed.

I don't care if it's the exact same engine so long as it's a great new story and new environments.  Whatever these guys can do to get the game out as quickly and cheaply (efficiently) as possible I am all for it.  I just finished my second playthrough although I feel a bit cheated by the whole medal thing not being backwards compatible.  What a fantastic, fantastic game.  Sensuous better not come in here and sully the thread with his comments about it being simply an above average game.

I'm actually waiting to start over, I think.  I didn't get all the way through it when the trophy announcement came, then by the time it was stated that they wouldn't be retroactive, I'd already waited a long time.

maybe it's a blessing they canceled the PS3 version.  or maybe they'll fix the game and then release the PS3 version, and promise a patch for the other versions but then add 'only if the PS3 version sells well' to the patch requirement.....

That could never happen.  Why just the thought of it makes me feel alienated and scared.  Almost like I'm alone in the dark.  Inferno.


Looking forward to your comments, Shifty.

I recommend checking out the Easy Golf game.  Unfortunately, it's 800 points, but there is the ability to design courses.  It's a pretty slick little golf game.

Others I've been interested in:

Colosseum (as I mentioned)
Weapon of Choice (pretty slick platform/shooter)
In the Pit
Blow (kind of like Eets with bubbles)
Artoon (puzzle/jumping game)

I haven't actually bought anything yet, but I think I may go in for Easy Golf, Colosseum and Weapon of Choice.

I also just saw Classic Card Games, which I will buy if it has Euchre and is any good.  And a game called Arriba!  I don't know what it is (the screenshot doesn't show much), but I'm downloading it anyway.

Hey Bullwinkle.  This is Matt, the creator of Easy Golf.  Thanks for you interest in Easy Golf.  If you haven't given the course editor a try I highly suggest it.  It is really the heart and soul of the game.  I've had some people email me and say that the course editor was worth 800 points by itself.

We are starting to build up a community of Easy Golf fanatics.  You can read what some people who have the full version are saying about the game on the xbox forums http://forums.xbox.com/1104/ShowForum.aspx.  I also have some links on my webpage www.barkerscrest.com so you can see what reviewers are saying about the game.

If Easy Golf is not your thing that is ok.  If it might be give the designer a try and see if it is your thing.

Right now people can share their courses online through multiplayer but I'm working on an update so that people can download other peoples courses and play them locally.

Thanks for your interest in Easy Golf and I hope to see you online,

Matt Davis

Matt, if you're still around and not just popping an ad in, I have a question.  Can you download designed courses to play by yourself or can you only play courses others designed when you meet them online?

First review I've seen is from OXM, a dreadful 4.5/10!

Steadfast alien worshippers mightíve forgiven a lot if Path of the Furon featured the same quality of off-color comedy that used to define the series. Crypto once overflowed with clever one-liners and film references, persistent mind-reading yielded unexpected silliness, and the sex-obsessed Arkvoodle could please a crowd. Here, youíll find little beyond groaners, pedestrian prattle, and underdeveloped monotony. Find another path to walk.

In unrelated news, the Grammar Nazi in my would like to ask that the comma in the Subject line gets removed.

Ah, the sweet, sweet irony....

Well they did say grammar not spelling.

Spelling would imply that there's a misspelled word there, which there isn't.  Those keys have "rt" between them.  I see a syntax error, which falls under grammar.  There's either a word being misused or a word missing.

In other news, Bullwinkle is my new nemesis.  slywink

Yeah, we've butted heads a bit today, but I give you this one, for sure.  I'm an idjit.

I'ma dismiss all you all from my impressions thread for starting another pointless argument. People like games people don't like others.

And I'll leave this thread for dead (nyuk nyuk) when I ask the mods to lock it.  (Look at me wonderpug! Look at me!)

Bah!  I don't like people who like that people like games, people don't like others, people!

I'm afraid I'm still "IN!"  I seem to prefer XBox games far more than others, just in general.

The photos look legit. The power supply is the strongest piece of evidence here. The previous version of the Xbox 360 required 175 watts and higher. As you can see from the photo, Jasper runs just dandy with 150 watts.

I've been waiting for the Jasper ever since I heard of it, but since you can't be sure you have a Jasper unit without opening the box (MS has removed the wattage info from the box), I'm trying to wait for more "proof" that they are on store shelves.  I have two launch units, and they are both giving signs of possible on-the-horizon problems. For me, at least, I figure I've gotten my money's worth out of both of them.  Although I was extremely lucky, obviously, I'm not willing to rely on luck for the next 360.  If I have to play PS2 and Wii games until I can be assured of a Jasper unit, then so be it.  icon_cry


Make sure you get the next one from Costco or Sam's Club.  They will let you exchange for a new one with no hassles.  One of the member benefits.  I expect to exchange my current one when I hear they've got Jaspers in stock.
