Quote from: Chaz on November 18, 2007, 05:30:56 AM

Rocky Road was frigging hard for my platform-disabled brain, but I managed to get through it.  Fortunately, there was a 1-up placed mid-level such that you had to work to get it, but it wasn't way out of the way, so the retries didn't wind up taking a chunk out of your extra guy reserves.  I think it seemed harder because it was drastically more difficult than the rest of the game up to then.

So far, I'm about 17 stars in.  I just opened up the second boss level, but have three stars on another galaxy before I get there.  I love the variety.  One second, I'm running around in a nice green area with trees and water.  Next minute, I'm getting Mario stuck in snot bushes, and pulling them back to fling him into the next snot bush, which are all floating on asteroids in the middle of space.  Very good game.

Of course, we seem to have a lot of those.  Got Mario on Tuesday, got Rock Band yesterday, and today I was finally able to pick up Call of Duty 4, Assassin's Creed, and Zack and Wikki, have Mass Effect coming in the mail as soon as it gets here, and I moved my Rock Band preorder over to Trauma Center 2.  Good lord, that's a lot of games.

I had similar challenges with Rocky Road.

They definitely waited too long to drop in the aliens.  The first odd bad guy you see isn't very impressive, either (and I don't think it's an alien).

The problem is in comparison, but that's true for any game that's not COD4 or AC or even Halo 3 or Bioshock or any of the uber-impressive games that are out.  Hopefully the bar has been raised for future games.

But as long as you understand that it's not those games and is just a "standard shooter," it's actually kind of fun, IMO.

In addition, film scribes Aykroyd and Ramis will pen a story for the vidgame that takes place in the early '90s, after "Ghostbusters II," during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.

Yeah... I'm thinking that #1- we all saw GB2 and it sucked, and #2- they might want to pretend GB2 never happened.

This might be a case where the game company would likely do a much, much better job.

And PS, Gigli is not better than anything whatsoever.  If someone thinks it's better than GhostBusters... go downtown and turn in your penis.

Hell, you don't even need a penis to love Ghostbusters.  I know plenty of women who love it.

I was in Manhattan about six months ago with my 4 year old daughter.  Way downtown.  When we headed back to the parking lot, I noticed this small, thin building with a red door across the street.  I just about geeksploded.  I asked the attendant and, sure enough, it was the Ghostbusters HQ.  I had to explain it to my kid, but had to add that she had to wait to see the movie (she'd never make it past the librarian).

The quotes that probably drop into real life most often for me are:

"...dogs and cats living together.  Mass hysteria!" (my wife actually said this just the other day)
"Nice shot, Tex!"
and
"I'm right in the middle of something, Ray!" with added slap to addressee's head.


Oh, and there was no Ghostbusters II.  Never happened.

I'm only an hour in but I think its safe to declare this my goty if not game of the past 10 years.

You might wanna wait to finish the game before calling it gotd (game of the decade).

I'll declare it whenever I want!  I'm a huge Mario fan so I may be just a little biased, but so far this game has been pure gold and it has everything I love about gaming. 

Including man breasts? slywink

I'll hopefully be receiving the game from GameFly today or tomorrow, then I can borrow my friend's Wii and get started. My friend suggested we have a "gamethon" with Mario where we play through together, each getting one star then passing the controller over. Does that sound like a good (albeit kinda gay) plan?

Not as gay as man breasts.

I bought it, but didn't open it.  IGN gave it a 6.3, saying:

Rabbids 2 is a sequel that has more style than substance. It's unfortunate, but it's true. While Ubisoft has added 50 new minis and colored the experience with unlockable costumes and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection support (for high score tracking), the core games are less enjoyable than those in the first, which is very disappointing. If you plan to pick the game up to play with friends, you will still have some fun -- some of the minis still deliver -- but don't expect a compete package as varied as the original. And as a single-player game, I wouldn't bother. Ubisoft does have the laughs down, but if there's to a be a third installment, I hope it will focus on minis that really use the Wii remote and nunchuk in unique and intuitive ways.

They liked the first one, but in the review they sound really disappointed in the second.

Hmm...that makes it sound more like a rental than a purchase. The other option is to just get the original. I was able to get a preowned copy for $22; probably even cheaper now that 2 is out.

The original is definitely worth $22.  Especially if you have others to play with.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone that has the game tried the co-op play mode?
I'd like both of my kids to be able to play this together so I'm wondering how well it works.

Yeah, I tried the co-op mode yesterday as my roommate played. There's not a whole lot to it. Basically the second player can wave the remote around and collect the star bits and then can fire them at enemies (which stuns them). However, because you collect star bits for extra lives (and maybe other things), you don't do a whole lot of firing. It does make you pay attention and you can point where you think the player should go (or to just annoy him/her... also fun), but the actual interaction is pretty limited.

This level of co-op is perfect for my four year old, though.  She loved playing with me yesterday.

Oh, look, here's a Kane & Lynch post.

So, the reviews are coming in and I guess it's an okay game at a time when we're seeing some of the best games ever on consoles.

IGN: 7.0
Gamespot: 6.0
1Up: 7.5
Gamepro: 60
OXM: 80
Team Xbox 7.0

Couple of clunkers, but mostly halfway decent.

I picked it up, but I probably won't get a chance to really play it for a couple of days.

I wouldn't say a 6.0 is pwned.  Beowolf's 3.0 from 1Up, now that's pwned.

K&L got a 7.0 from IGN and a 7.5 from 1Up.  The reviews seem to say that it's an okay game in a season of outstanding games.

*sigh*  Having played Umbrella Chronicles I can say, enjoy the crap implementation of the 'zapper' functions.  Even the Capcom guy at E3 said they were having a far more difficult time than they anticipated getting any level of accuracy in the thing.   Expect low scores folks...

Actually, Game Rankings just gave RE:UC an 8.3, though they did say the zapper was more of a hinderence than a help.  Still, they really liked it, saying, "A superb entry in the genre with a ton of great missions and reasons to play again and again. Anyone that enjoys the macabre, or going nose-to-nose with zombies should check it out. Fans will absolutely love it as it's basically a love letter from Capcom to them. "

I defy anyone to beat the whole game on the hardest difficulty.  No way!  The grenades are just ridiculous.  Hell, I thought they were ridiculous on Regular.  I think that was one of their biggest mistakes in the gameplay, by the way. 

And, I too wish it had a cover system like R6V.  One, I just love seeing my character from time to time, and two, I just like having a protected space from time to time.  In this game you are not safe ANYWHERE.  You can be in a cubby hole in some odd placed room away from the battle and wallah, a grenade lands at your feet.  Who would have thought all those ex pro baseball players would have gone all terrorist on us like that?!

I was just thinking the same thing about grenades, BTW, but a bigger problem to me is the amount of reaction time they give you.  Frequently, you don't have enough time to get out of the way when the icon appears.  They drive me nuts.  So do the, "Duh, you should have noticed that slightly flaming car near you" death messages.

As for game length, unless the other two chapters are amazingly short, I think this'll easily cross the eight hour mark for me.  And MP is a blast, but I rarely plug that much time into MP.

I was remotely considering picking this up til I watched a bunch of the newest vids.  Just doesn't look next-gen enough for me.  Maybe when under $30.  I have actually started considering Blacksite actually.  Liked the demo, though short as hell. Not a big fan of the Unreal engine anymore, but I'm a sucker for the whole Area 51 stuff. Plus, from what I've seen the npc's you play along side seem to have that funny/interesting bantor like that in Gears.  I like that crap.  Makes me actually care for them a little.  Waiting on reviews on it, and if 8.0 or higher I will most likely grab it.

I was also impressed by the Blacksite demo.  I'm hoping that one comes together more than K&L, but who knows with K&L, really.

I think you guys may be exagerating a bit.  It's an on the rails sequence.  You do know the whole game's not like that, right?  Once again, that video says to me that K&L is going to be about the story.  I'm at least a little interested in why he's
Spoiler for Hiden:
blacking out and killing people.

The graphics were the disappointing thing to me.  Not a deal breaker if the gameplay and story are good, but not as dazzling as I would have hoped.

I'm not trying to paint myself as a K&L fanboy here, but at the same time, I'm not sure what you guys are seeing that make you describe this as an affront to gaming kind.

I think, and dearly hope, we dodged a bullet here.   

Maybe it was just the Collector's Edition or something, but like mikeg, I've been checking the websites, and none are showing a delay yet.

to move a unit you simply have to tap it with the stylus and then it drag to the desired location on the grid. Context sensitive menus mean that assigning specialist orders is a breeze, and although the option to use the more traditional 'pad and buttons' interface is always available, the robust nature of the stylus control means you're unlikely to do so.
I didn't see this at Best Buy today but the turn-based Front Mission DS is in stock now. I've got my hands full in PC land right now (Hellgate and COD4), but I plan to go a little handheld crazy soon with this, Front Mission DS, SOCOM: Tactical Strike (PSP) and Warhammer 40K: Squad Command (PSP/DS). My credit card will be pleading for mercy by month's end.  nod

Best Buy doesn't even have it on their website, let alone in stores.  Not a good sign.

I just finished the airboat section this afternoon.  Although it didn't seem so bad my second time through (I played it when it first came out on PC) because at least I kind of remembered how to solve the puzzles, it was still way too long.  It's nice, however, that the driving parts are broken up by exploring/puzzle solving/shooty parts.  After the airboat section, however, you're treated to what may be the best weapon ever in a FPS and meet one of the most memorable characters in any videogame, followed by the legendary Ravenholm.  So, yes, it most definitely picks up.

Yeah, I remember getting really tired of the airboat section in particular.  The buggy doesn't seem so bad, because there are a lot of houses and security gates and they all feel a little different.  The airboat comes right after a long ass running on foot section through similar terrain with a very short reprieve in between. 

Second playthrough didn't bother me this time, either, though.

There were a lot of games that came out around the same time with very long sections.  Far Cry comes to mind.  I think one of the Medal of Honors, maybe, too.  I much prefer FPS levels to be about a half hour in length.  You can put a few of them together to make an uberlevel, but don't make it "seemless."  I'd like a little sense of reward after that half hour and the feeling that now would be an okay time to save and walk away, while being compelled to want to continue.

Is that too much to ask?

I'd say 7 out of 10 times I go to CC or BB for their "guaranteed by 2pm" games and they have no idea what I'm talking about and go check in the back because they haven't been put out yet.  The other 30% of the time they just aren't in stock at all. 

They *never* have the damn games out on time, and that's both of the 2 BB's and CC around here.  You'd think that at least one of the 4 stores would stock their shelves or know what products they have coming out.

MY BB seems to have a never ending rotation of new employees who have no idea how their store works.  I wait until the internet says the game is in stock at the store.  Then I arrive and it's not on the shelf.  Eventually, I find an employee and explain the situation.  He tells me that the internet stock is not the same as the store stock.  I tell him I've gone through this every week for the past hundred weeks and am beginning to feel like I'm in Groundhog Day and that the game is right there in the back room, if he could just go get it please.  He usually grunts and types some things into a computer then doubtfully mutters, "Well, I'll check..."  About ten minutes later, he comes out with the game and a look on his face that says he thinks he's now God's Gift to Best Buy. 

Honestly, if it weren't for all the coupons and rewards program and the fact that Gamestop is 4000% worse, I wouldn't bother. 

Circuit City prominently displays Super Mario Sunshine on their 360 New Releases shelf.

His reviews really are always great.  Yet I never see them unless I stumble on them through some forum or other.

360:
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - even though I'm one of the few who wishes they'd stuck with WWII
F.E.A.R. Files - not this week, but probably when it comes down to around $30
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga - maybe.  Does anyone know if I have to play through the original trilogy again, or will it magically pick up from where I left off?  Apart from the tweaks to the prequels, what's really been added to this to make it worth playing through again?
Scene-It - I love Scene It, and the demo was interesting, but I don't know if I want 4 big ass controllers cluttering up my house that I'll get to use maybe twice.

Wii:
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn - I'm a little disappointed to hear it's a Gamecube game.  I'd like better graphics and the ability to use the wiimote as a pointer.  I'll probably still get it, but I may wait.
Mario and Sonic: Olympic Games - I' ve been hearing good things about this, surprisingly.  Still waiting on reviews, though.
My Word Coach - Anyone have any idea about this?  Or the French and Spanish ones for the DS?
Super Mario Bros. 3 (VC) - I think I may be done with VC games until they come up with a way to let me play from a memory card.

DS:
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker - not sure what the deal is with this one
Ontamarama - even less sure what the deal is with this one
Panzer Tactics - this one I know the deal.  IN.

So, the only two for sure are COD4, despite grumblings, and Panzer Tactics, though I always think I'll give strategy titles more time than I eventually do.  I'm going to be itching for Fire Emblem, and trying to wait on getting it, which'll lead me to Panzer Tactics, I'm sure.

Maybe it's just me, but no matter how much you may love a game, if you are going to criticize aspects of it, please don't give it a perfect score! That makes no sense.

The score isn't meant to be "perfect" it's meant to indicate that they give it their highest recommendation and it's certainly conceivable that you could feel that way even if a game as some flaws. 

The "perfect score" debate has filled pages of internets.  Let's nip it in the bud here and stick with SMG stuff, 'kay?
