In Sands of Time, I always liked the way that Farrah would exclaim, "Look, a crack!" and immediately wedge herself into the tiniest, most claustrophobic hole she could find.  It always made me think, "Wow, she'll do almost anything to get time away from the Prince!"

Also, I'd like to add Minsc and Boo from the Baldur's Gate games to the list. thumbsup

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.

"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.

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.

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.

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?

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 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.

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...

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.

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.

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 W@W 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.
