fired up front mission evolved for some mech loving and even though it isn't as good as expected it has been decent enough so far.  wish there was a camera further back as it's too damn close to the mech.  makes it hard when you get into melee range. 

i might also go after the next chapter in mp two worlds 2 to see what happens. 

far enough into it to get to the hated quad vs two mech boss fights and haven't had much luck getting past it.  saw the red faction armageddon preview and booted up RFG to tide me over.  damn that game is a lot of fun.

didn't boot up two worlds at all.  finding it harder to motivate myself to go back knowing how f-ed up the mp players are with overpowered cheaters all around.  might hold off on the mp campaign and village mode if the urge arises to go back.

holy fucking shit ground level view of the water plowing over a neighborhood.

we've all gotten used to seeing interesting videos on the internet, but that has to be one of the most incredible things i've ever seen...just an amazing perspective of the power and destruction of the tsunami

 eek

It just doesn't stop. I'm not trying to be funny, but it reminded me of a horrifying Karmari Damacy the way the water would keep taking away bigger and bigger things.

Plus I kept wanting to yell at the camera person to get the hell out of there.

i was thinking pretty much the same thing.

ask yourself, if someone had posted "9/11 Humor--WARNING--IF YOU ARE POLITICALLY CORRECT, DONT READ THE THREAD"  and the joke

what's the #1 film in NYC right now? 

Falling Down

would you have laughed?  not only is it insensitive to make light of a massive tragedy, it's not even the least bit funny.  it's bad humor for 8 year olds. 

now, if you wanted to ask the question, how did some people in Japan react to the quake?

I heard Hideo Kojima hid in a box.
The creator of Pokemon was hit by a massive shock and fainted.
Miyamoto was safe atop his mountain of money.

then you might have a thread here.

nevermind your attempt to play the "wounded party" angle by defending your avatar as some sort of family pride.  you have had several posts related to the quake that are designed to incite arguments so this whole thing is just reaction to your callous indifference.  accept that you came off as shallow and move on.  or move along.  your choice.

Have fun!  I have a certain affection for it.  I appreciate that the devs did something different and I love the atmosphere.  I wasn't very good at it and doubt I'll ever finish it without resorting to a solution, but I have to admit the puzzles are logical - in retrospect... slywink
sadly, it seems the videos are not going to work in vista/win7 so I have even less to go on in regards to story. The art style is interesting to say the least.

as long as it's not just a 6 hour once and done, i will be fine.  challenge levels and extra content would go a long way. 

this marks the first game where i will be getting the ps3 over the 360 version, just for that pc code included.

Quote from: Huw the Poo on March 11, 2011, 10:52:04 AM

This is bullshit.  Brad Wardell posted this in his blog:

Quote
New Sins of a Solar Empire customers can pre-order Rebellion for $39.95.  Existing registered Sins players can upgrade to Rebellion for $29.95.

To pre-order, just head to the Store:  http://www.sinsofasolarempire.com/store.aspx

So I go to the store and click upgrade.  Here I'm greeted with two options: Preorder Rebellion for $39.95 or preorder it and get Diplomacy for...$39.95.  So because I don't have Diplomacy I don't get the discount!  Ya know why I don't have Diplomacy?  Because I didn't want it!  And now I'm being penalised.  Saying "registered Sins players" get a discount is disingenuous; what he actually appears to mean is players who bought Sins and both micro-expansions.

Is Diplomacy required then?

Edit: OK, calmed down now!  If Diplomacy is required then I guess it's fine, although now I wish I'd bought it when it was on sale.  I still think Brad's post was disingenuous though.

yeah, that is a bit misleading.  saying "registered sins players" is not the same as saying it requires both expansions.  like you i also did not buy diplomacy as none of the mods i had required it and i didn't see the need.

still, for $40, i hope this is not just a fancy new set of ships and a few tweaked gameplay mechanics.  if that's all they offer, i can go and get a mod doing similar stuff for free.

Oh man, when Ebert won't even give you one star, it's time to bail.  I was going to see this because I came across what must have been the ONLY good review of the movie, but after reading Ebert's take, I think I'll wait for it on netflix.

Yeah, Ebert's usually pretty fair to these kinds of movies. He understands they aren't trying to be Citizen Kane and judges them accordingly.

Young men: If you attend this crap with friends who admire it, tactfully inform them they are idiots. Young women: If your date likes this movie, tell him you've been thinking it over, and you think you should consider spending some time apart.

I think I'll talk my wife out of going.  icon_lol

that's some good stuff right there.  ebert hasn't entertained me in years but that was great.

saw this on kotaku.

someone has coded in a javascipt applet in chrome that turns any page into a katamari damacy style playground.  simply copy this and paste into any address bar and hit enter
Code:
javascript:var h='http://174.129.249.239/js/',i,n,ss=['http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js',h+'Renderables.js',h+'Game.js'];for(i=0;i<ss.length;i++){n=document.createElement("script");n.src=ss[i]+'?'+Date.now();document.head.appendChild(n);}

you can then start rolling.

Picked up the first during the recent sale they had and am enjoying it, with the exception of those damn kaiser tanks. They are overpowered and take a ton of damage.

One could only hope for a mix of actual 80's toys but I'll be happy if we get decent knockoffs instead. Star wars figures vs GI Joe would be fun. Toss in he-man for the melée units.

6622  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Homefront on: March 09, 2011, 09:24:06 PM
Tbh, I wish EA had done this with MoH as I never played much mp and I could have saved the code. Would have got more for it in resale value. As long as they don't make it a time limit, I would totally accept this kind purchase lockout for any mp game that forces the issue.  I will still prefer to have it all free but I doubt that will remain the status quo for much longer.
6623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Homefront on: March 08, 2011, 09:02:23 PM
At five hours I am glad I am renting. I was really hoping for something with a little more substane than a cod clone, especially as the mp doesn't seem all that different from the masses of modern military shooters. Amazingly, I am more excited for socom 4 than homefront now and I would not have said that six months ago.  As said earlier, the potential this game had dwarfed its reality.

they also have the "sequel" conquest of the americas for $10.49

I was watching some gameplay videos for Conquest and man, did it look boring.

they are definitely of the "slow burning" types.  i didn't have any impressions like that when playing other similar games so i'm hoping that the EIC complete i bought won't be too dull either.

I loaned a friend Left 4 Dead way back when.  He took it home, put in the XBox and started the No Mercy level.

The next day he gave it back to me.  "How far did you get?" I asked him.

He said, "I was on the rooftop and after the helicopter went buy I grabbed a gun and opened the door. There was a zombie at the bottom of the stairs and he looked at me.  I ejected the game and brought it back."

Pansy never even fired a shot.   icon_frown

Heh, I should send him the link to the trailer for Dead Island. 

better yet, have him come over an then show it to him.

I've bought this on steam but it just shows the name in my libary. Do you get informed if`you will be able to download it so it unlocks at sale day.

I presume I also get nothing for preordering a digital version and not the dvd.

I imagine they may do the pre-load where you can download most of the game before the release on March 22nd but they don't notify you, you'll just have to keep an eye on Steam.

here's the pre-order goodies  you get.

i've still got my copy as well and never got more than a few hours worth of play out of the mp.  it was pretty fun in a decent group but maddening all the same.  getting a perfect spot on an enemy only to find out that his buddy was stalking you and somehow knows you are hit, even in a group of clones.

from what i hear now, most people just run the rooftops and it boils down into a race

I might go see one or two of them (certainly Revenge of the Sith) just to see the quality of the conversion, but the real ticket is in 2015 when Star Wars (fuck you A New Hope) hits. My son will be the same age I was when I first saw it. 3D or no, I'm going to see Star Wars with my son in the theater and showing him what an experience that is. smile

not only am I planning on doing the same thing with my son (he'll be 7 by then) but i am going to try and keep TESB and RotJ spoiler free until he sees them in the theater.

damn shame they are going in order though as it would be great to see clone wars and sith in the theaters.
