true, although i still miss the little updates and hints of upcoming ideas.  other than the achievements and hints at fighting a dragon, he's been pretty quiet lately.

Quote from: TK-421 on March 03, 2011, 10:06:24 PM

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.

this will be the big push to finish up two worlds 2 and maybe give dead space 1/2 a last chance before i send ds2 back.  may fire up civ v to expand my empire a bit as well.

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.

picked this up last week on a sale.  love it.  watched it twice in two days (once while the wife was at work as i had no desire to play anything) and again friday night with her.  what i expected to happen didn't; i figured she would be bored and want to switch it off in favor of a crime show.  she enjoyed it as much as i did.  almost.  i think it's brilliant and it's one of those movies that i won't get bored of watching.  great characters and both scott and ramona  were cast perfectly. 

i think they did a great job with the music as well. 
6659  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Killzone 3 on: February 27, 2011, 11:49:06 PM
Just finished this as well and while it felt a little too routine towards the end with the vehicle segments, I enjoyed it. The lack of a real boss fight against the big bad guys is a let down though. I liked the battle with the giant mech though.

The stealth level was a bit odd though as you get to a certain point and then can't be stealthy any more. The jet pack was interesting but under used. The late game weapons were fun. I loved the bfg and the missile/mortar launcher and of course the design to let you carry it around with a regular assault rifle.
6660  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 2/25/11 on: February 27, 2011, 05:21:34 PM
Played a lot of killzone 3 to the point of almost finishing it. It's pretty solid for a shooter but I will probably send it back when I'm done as I still have a huge backlog to work through. 
6661  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Homefront on: February 27, 2011, 08:50:22 AM
that did say THQ australia.  prices are always out of whack down there. 

if it's the same price up here, then that's way out of line with what they include.  some unlocks and a small book?  how about no.
6662  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ubisoft gets into the swing of things on: February 25, 2011, 05:34:05 AM
the bonus videos from the end of the video are even worse.  what kind of game do they really think they have here?  or did i miss the part where they mention the pre-order bonus, a bag of X?
6663  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Killzone 3 on: February 25, 2011, 05:28:11 AM
with any luck i will be able to try this out over the weekend.  damnable snow put a dent in the deliveries this week so it might not happen.  i enjoyed 2 for what it did different but other than an annoying end boss, i can't describe anything about the campaign that i remember standing out from the crowd.

Unclear how involved Jon Van Caneghem was for C&C4 (came late, name not in credits). Maybe he can help right the ship (creater of HOMM, Kings Bounty...), although I don't see any RTSs on his bio either (which as discussion noted, could be good).

maybe they'll try something new and make it turned based.....

i can see it now, TB free-to-play facebook game.  or we'll get something like the xbla version of wing commander and bsg, aka "slap a well-known vehicle skin over generic top-down arena shooter and call it a day".

i ended up playing quite a bit with that star wars mod that came out a while back and haven't been back to the original 3 at all.

themes, by visual comparison.

I don't think that's a very good comparison, except for the Morrowind and Oblivion. Skyrim's sound has clearly been compressed so much that you can no longer recognize the dynamics just by looking at the waveform.

fair request. 
all three in the same time scale with the actual theme clipped out.

of course, there are a number of artifacts in the es5 sample

That video is my first real taste of the new theme music.  It is quite possibly the best I have heard for any game, ever. 

i love how they revisited the morrowind theme.

not quite sure what you mean,as i just heard The Elder Scrolls theme same as Morrowind and Oblivion,but with a choir(which i agree was brilliant)..it's always just slightly different with each game...unless you meant another part which i didn't recognize

He means that the theme goes all the way through and doesn't stop just before the climax like Oblivion's theme did. That was always so frustrating with that game, hearing all the buildup and then having it fizzle away into nothing.


oh,yeah i see what you mean

basically, yes.  the oblivion theme builds up for about 25 seconds then goes all mellow, like JS just popped a Quaalude or something, for about 30 then builds back up again only to peter out a short while before getting to another build-up and mellow-out sequence.  the ES5 theme is a huge payoff started out by a strong yell.  even without the lyrics, it's a strong theme song all the way through.

kind of fitting really.  morrowind, dark elves, exotic sound.  es5, nords, strong sound.  es4, britons, wussy sappy crap.

  I think handhelds are in their infancy and sometime down the road we may see inspiration in their use in a way I can't imagine and I'll love it.  It took 30 years for 3D to reach that point for me, so I'm not holding my breath.  


what advances can one make in the field of hand held cameras?  Genetically larger hands for steadier shots?   Tongue

I know that that style can cause people to become nauseous or give them headaches, but it doesn't for me (however, 10 minutes with the half life 2 engine and i'm ready for the vomit bag).  i can certainly understand why that would turn some folks off.  but i loved the bourne trilogy and there were a ton of hand held shots in that, so i disagree that as a film making tool it's a mistake.
no, you make them bigger so they can house better optical stabilization technology then give the cameraman a shoulder harness to hold it.
