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
javascript:var h='',i,n,ss=['',h+'Renderables.js',h+'Game.js'];for(i=0;i<ss.length;i++){n=document.createElement("script");n.src=ss[i]+'?';document.head.appendChild(n);}

you can then start rolling.

I see criminal charges in their futures... if MS can figure out who it was...

they will have no problem figuring out who used them.
"We are aware of the situation and have taken steps to invalidate the codes obtained illegitimately," .....Our Policy and Enforcement team is evaluating whether or not certain individuals have violated the Terms of Use for Xbox LIVE and will take the appropriate enforcement on an individual basis."

all i could say to those who tried this is HA.  what, you think ms wouldn't figure out the hack and use it to track down the fake numbers?

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.

That would have been very helpful to have before my 60gb ps3 died. Now I'd just make sure to copy the saves to a USB drive or something.
6650  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.
6651  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.

Personally I was interested in the East India Company collection for 70% off - and for once it was actually available in my region!  Sold, to the handsome Welshman for less than four quid. icon_biggrin

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.

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. 
6675  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.
6676  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. 
6677  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.
6678  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ubisoft gets into the swing of things on: February 25, 2011, 05:34:05 AM

6679  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.

pending decent reviews/impressions, i might grab it for the console.  might wait for the inevitable steam sale as this totally screams "$2.50 daily special".
