6641  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo: Reach Impressions thread on: October 07, 2010, 03:25:17 AM
finished it up on legendary.  was a lot easier than i anticipated actually and areas that gave me grief on heroic didn't hang me up too long.  some of them i was able to get past in one or two loads instead of the multiple attempts on heroic.  it really forces you to change your tactics and use the right weapon for the job and be aware of your surroundings.  i hope that IW and treyarch take the same approach to veteran difficulty that bungie uses instead of the "30 guys spawn in a 1 story house, know exactly where you are at all times and have perfect hip shooting aim" as this was infinitely more enjoyable than my veteran runs through mw1 and the hardened playthrough of w@w and mw2. 

hell, the end sequence only took 3 attempts before i had the pattern down cold and beat the game. 

awesome experience and i enjoyed the challenge (even while i cursed it up and down til i was blue in the face for yet another unexpected death)

now, that damn "they came to hear me beg" achievement can go suck my b@11s though.  dozens of attempts and 5 successful assassinations but the damn code didn't know i would die had i missed.

yeah, the camera is pretty bad.  i am fighting the first boss and i cannot judge from the view when the best time to roll away is and have died a bunch of times on hard, even though i have buffed up life and the shield (which i doubt will help in this fight).  i got close one time where he started sparking but he hit me with his strong attack and killed me.  had i been able to see him properly, i would have been able to get out of the way. 

so far, i like this mix of exploration and combat but the damn camera really kills the big fights.  if i can't get past this guy i will have to restart and go to an easier difficulty.

Hmm, maybe it's better I ended up with Scott pilgrim.  The difficulty of their last game eventually got the better of me. I'll wait until there has been some more impressions for now.

i picked up some points for the xbla deal and bought scott pilgrim after the trial.  i kind of broke my own rule and jumped at it instead of waiting to try comic jumper.  good fun so far.
6646  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Borderlands Impressions incoming! Level Cap going up. on: October 06, 2010, 03:25:39 AM
that has to be the oddest combo match up since burger king made games.  not sure i will bother with the goty version though as i have the two better expansions and the current used price is cheaper than half the new price. 
6647  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/04) on: October 04, 2010, 01:35:18 PM
Hoping enslaved will be on the way soon and I am going to pick up a few poons cards for comic jumper and another for that xbla points deal.
6648  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: new 360 dash preview program on: October 01, 2010, 03:38:02 AM
what i really want is a way to see what full games i own and a quicker way to download and play them vs trial.  i wiped a few a while back in preparation for moving to a slim and kind of forgotten which ones i own.  i also want a faster way to swap between game and party chat as it's a huge pita to do so during any gaming, mostly due to the fact the damn dashboard takes so freaking long to load up it's useless. 
6649  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo's 3D House of DS on: October 01, 2010, 03:20:23 AM
yup, $250 is the best price i think we can expect on this for a while.  however, i also expect that most retailers will try the same crap they did when the last major systems hit and force you into a bundle with a game and some overpriced accessories. 

i really wish they had just announced the US price at the same time.

np.  i had nothing better to do until today anyways.  biggrin 

btw, i got paid today for 4 hours where i sat in a cube and read kotaku and GT and whatever i felt like as there was absolutely nothing to do.  (karma made up for it though in the second half where i and 3 other people sat in a single desk office facing the sun with no AC and powered up 300 laptops to check the MAC address)  yay for being employed again i guess. 

i only bought the tropico 3 + expansion the one day they lined up and also because i got them both for ~10 bucks.  i wasn't overly tempted by much else though.  it will be a long wait until steam's year end sale.
6651  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Direct2Drive Summer Sale Day 30: Sims 2 Double Deluxe or Manhunt 2 on: September 30, 2010, 08:39:54 PM
Well, that's a pretty weak end to the sale. I was hoping for something much better.

It's the Disney strategy.  Put them back out every seven years to have the kids extort another round of toy money out of their parents. 

goddamn disney "vault".  so glad pixar didn't allow that shit to happen to them.

that's crazy.  wish i had seen that bit when it was available.  the old non-creeper mode didn't sell me on it and this game could be a love or hate thing with me anyways.

Will anything that runs in vista run in 7? She doesnt run anything out of the ordinary generally but does have some software that runs her sewing machine i might be concerned about.
if it works in vista, she should be ok.

Incredibly difficult combat

I'll wait for a demo.

There's a demo out on PSN in Europe.  I'm not sure why it hasn't been released in the US yet, but I assume it will be available soon.

can you get a euro account ala 360 and d/l it that way?

6660  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: which Windows 7 do I need? on: September 28, 2010, 11:23:27 PM
it all boils down to this:
do you want/need to run programs in windows xp that don't work in vista/win7?
do you need to join the pc to a domain? 
do you need to back up to a network attached device?

based on 2 and 3 being more than the usual home user needs, i would say go with premium.  windows xp mode is nice but in all likelihood, she won't need to worry about that either unless she works from home or has a side job with very specific needs.

those three things are not worth the extra 80 bucks for the retail version for the majority of people.

I would love a 3d take on the 2d gameplay. I don't know why they haven't done this already considering that the metroid prime games had a healthy dose of that gameplay.

agreed.  the only benefit you get is if you like having a different suit or slightly improved car to drive.  would have been good to start with but at this point, it's not worth the price of a cup of coffee.

Way out, but will probably read the slamming reviews for fun:
Quantum Theory
MorphX

Like this 3/10 for QT from Eurogamer?



that's pretty bad it turned out so horribly.  sounds like the one good point to make about the game doesn't even take place until half-way or more through the game.

that accident happened when the driver fell asleep at the wheel.  he was not injured apparently.  
6672  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Enslaved on: September 28, 2010, 03:21:53 AM
ironic that in a week's time this has gone from "maybe possible" to definite for me.  first i bumped the mech game until hearing more favorable impressions, then i played the demo and found it much more enjoyable than i expected; plus the confirmation that arcania isn't quite impressive at this point, and finally the news that two worlds 2 was bumped to january. 

i guess this is the gamers' saints way of getting me ready to play this game.

with any luck, dr2 via gamefly.  i backed out on front mission as either enslaved or two worlds 2 is next week and those both look interesting.

what? Two worlds is next week?!

that's what all the stores/online sites are saying.  it was originally supposed to be out the same day as Halo: Reach, but they were smart and delayed it.

and ti just got delayed until January 2011.

word has it that TW2 has just been delayed until January 2011  crybaby

yup, the date on gamefly is now 1/4.  crap on a cracker.  

silver lining, it won't get trounced by fable 3 (i know, different approach and all) for followers.  it also means that fantasy rpg's are down to fable and arcania, which i tried and am not overly impressed by.  

so enslaved gets the spotlight next week.

C&C4 - $14.95
Midnight Club 2 - $4.95

also, it looks like the kotaku and twitter codes have ended so if you missed the shot at civ v for $40, it's time to wait.

Got the email, DR2 is in the way. If it's good, I'll goozex it later for keeps ormaybe fet front mission.

I really hope two worlds 2 is next week and isn't plagued by any old (or new, for that matter) problems. I haven't been interested in divinity 2 or dragon age and need a good rpg.

you have the same card i do BJ.  top of the line dx9 card but incapable of all the newer bells and whistles of the newer games.  what i would look for in the requirements is for things added since dx9 that are specifically hardware based and therefore will not be possible on our cards.  i find that most games don't have to have that stuff, but look much better if it did.  still run pretty well though and performance wise, able to run at mid-high resolutions without too much stutter.  i had arma 2 and dragon rising running on this machine without too much trouble and they still looked ok to me.  if your eyes (or budget) are better than mine, you might disagree though.  biggrin
