glad to see he's back.  much better than the other one and random nfl guys.  (although the wtf one ceekay posted was rather odd)

I just learned that you can get another 768mb free by linking your social sites to it.

I'll need to confirm the link, but iirc, it's dropbox.com/free

that sugar sync sounds useful too. You have to muck about with symlinks to get that freedom with dropbox.

Is this a direct successor to the first Two Worlds? Or can someone jump into this game without preamble? The first game (PC version) is sitting on a shelf unopened, so I can always fire it up if necessary.

Most of the buzz about the game says the PC version is significantly better that Two Worlds. I'm curious to see if the same is true for the 360 version.
never played the first one on console, but I hear it was a pretty rough port by a team with little console experience. I know the pc version was pretty fun though. It was labeled "oblivion light" and I've heard similar lines leveled against TW2 but I am enjoying this one a lot and while it didn't reach the high level of polish, it has got damn close. It also has a lot of things going on that you don't usually get in a single rpg, let alone one with a large and diverse map to explore with Gothic levels of things to find and all without significant flaws.

Also, it has a bunch of mp modes with persistent characters (in co-op for sure, not sure how the tdm works). When's the last time you got that in a full non mmo rpg?

Yeah, I'm tempted to get the 360 version but I know there's a lot the community might do with the pc version.

If the mod community takes off, I'll consider picking it up again on a steam sale. I also figure that my older pc wouldn't do this game justice either.

Want some free loot? Of corse you do. Here's mid level gear that might help you along:

Dragon Armor - 4149-3083-9823-6545
Elexorien (Sword)- 3542-3274-8350-6064
Scroll - 6972-5760-7685-8477
Hammer - 6231-1890-4345-5988
Axe - 1775-3623-3298-1928
Anathros(Sword) - 6770-8976-1634-9490
Lucienda (Sword) - 9122-5287-3591-0927

the hotkeys also shit according to your stance and equipped weapon.

Well, I'm out...


party pooper.

I'm not sure that wasn't intentional. :p
"shift" was the word I was looking for.

Played through the first world (the oceans are beautiful btw. Reminds me of some areas I've seen IRL.)
the next one is in the savannah and the wildlife you can hunt makes me feel like I'm playing a mod for Far Cry 2. That is until the giant ants jumped out at me. The difficulty is not scaled with the mobs either and I've got the reload count to prove it.  I do wish there was a better way to see a mob's threat level though. I was killed in two hits from a goblin looking thing that looked exactly like the ones I had been equally matched against and that was still on the first island.

He game is huge btw. After i left the island via a portal, I zoomed back to see how far away I gone and it was the far end of the map on a second continent altogether. It's not the same half of the world as in the first either afaik.

Once you get in DS let me know and we can test out the mp.
Here are some codes for special items that have been posted: 

Dragon Armor - 4149-3083-9823-6545
Elexorien (Sword)- 3542-3274-8350-6064
Scroll - 6972-5760-7685-8477
Hammer - 6231-1890-4345-5988
Axe - 1775-3623-3298-1928
Anathros(Sword) - 6770-8976-1634-9490
Lucienda (Sword) - 9122-5287-3591-0927

they are not unique and none where immediately useful to my level 5 character but it gives me something to look forward to.

But, gah, the Wachowski Brothers seemed to be a one trick pony (Speed Racer? Really?), and I wouldn't blame them at all for just returning back to their one moment of greatness, to try to revive their careers.

Not necessarily - I did enjoy V for Vendetta.

i had forgotten that was them.  i also enjoyed that one quite a bit.

that pretty much sums up my impressions on the 360 version too.  i took a break to post it but am getting back in now. 

it's pretty much taken me out of playing FONV for now.  too many drab environments for now.  need a break as the friendly ai was pissing me off last night.

TW2 is pretty fun so far.  i do wish you could sneak and use the bow at the same time though. 
6692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: First LittleBigPlanet 2 details on: January 26, 2011, 05:27:13 AM
played through the first two and half zones and enjoying it so far, even if some of my control annoyances are resurfacing.  i did play a handful of the player levels and enjoyed them, the biggest being the twin stick shooter.  by the time i ended for the night i had placed #52 on the leaderboards for that one.  fun little distraction. 

it's going to take some time to get all of the puzzle pieces as there are definitely areas that i have seen them hiding but was unable to see how to get to them.
6693  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (01/24) on: January 26, 2011, 05:23:23 AM
picked up TW2 and have DS2 coming in via gamefly. 
6694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Two Worlds 2 Impressions on: January 26, 2011, 05:21:48 AM
I stopped and picked this up on the way home and so far, I like what I see.  Sure, parts of the manual are in German, but everything is pretty easy to pick up after the tutorial.  it does hand hold you ever so slightly, but after that you are on your own.  I went out walking and spent a good chunk of time killing the local wildlife and looting their corpses. 

they added in quite a bit this time around but took out the weapon buff method from the first one.  instead, you can break down items into their component parts at any time and use them to upgrade the others.  that's skill dependent of course as is the alchemy you can do.  they wisely made it so you don't have to backtrack to camp to do this stuff, but made that easier if you wanted to.  same with magic spell creation. you can mix and match the spell type and form whenever you want and assign whichever you want.  it's not as packed with hotkeys as sacred 2 but it's more than enough.  the hotkeys also shit according to your stance and equipped weapon.  if you sheath your weapon, you can sneak around for a backstab as well.  there are a handful of skills in the three branches and you can respec at certain vendors.  i have also been granted skill points for picking locks and after killing a number of enemies. 

the lock pick mini game is different.  it's a timing game where the pick must hit the groove in a set of descending rings.  the pick rotates on its own but you can swap direction whenever you want.  from the looks of it, the skill level ties in to how long you can hold your hand steady so you can't get the higher level locks as easily. 

combat is pretty hectic and you can be swarmed if you aren't careful.  you can kick off an aoe spell or a crowd sweeper move if you have the right weapon.  you could also use an arrow as distraction to split them up, traps to snare them or hurt them, multi-arrows to hurt more than one at a time and should you get the chance, the ability to kill them silently with a backstab. 

graphically, it's pretty nice to look at.  lots of good shadow and lighting work, little environmental details that add to the views and none of the technical issues that plagued the original.  it also seems to have a rather expansive world with minimal amounts of oblivion-esque load zones.  decent voice work all around and i like the ability to pan around during conversations. 

i haven't even tried the mp yet, which offers the usual competitive modes plus a separate co-op campaign, horde mode and the quirky village mode.  could be interesting. 

anybody else pick this up today?

there are a few random lines in german too spread throughout the manual.

so far, i have played a few hours and i like what i see.  very nice atmosphere and i am enjoying the combat. 
6698  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (01/24) on: January 24, 2011, 07:12:57 AM
Two Worlds 2 on the 360.  

for the wary, here are the deals on the big games this week courtesy of kmart.  not sure if the 1-30 date is correct though.
1-25 Dead Space 2 Free 1600 XBLA Points or $20 PSN for Free
1-30 Two Worlds II $39.99 (Reg. $59.99)

hmm, read the thread but it appears that TW2 goes on sale the week after release (which is a horrible promo btw) but you can buy it this week and get a price adjust next week.

stayed up late with lbp2 and did not get any time away in the wastelands.  it's going to be tough after this week with that and two worlds 2.  rpg's are my bane.  love playing them but never get enough time to finish them before the next one comes out.

never heard of that one before so I looked it up.   I hope they update it, it sounds really freakin' cool.  or even better, Notch should buy it and incorporate it into the game.

Oh yeah, there's certainly a ton of options available to Notch right now. With the money he's pulling in, maybe he could hire a few of the top modders to officially help with survival mode. Battle Towers, Mo' Creatures, and others bring a whole new experience to the game.   

any chance this works in smp?  would love that

it's worth it for butcher bay alone.

I just couldn't finish that game. I ended up encountering too many sections where it looks like you're supposed to sneak past and you're heavily punished for not doing so, yet the enemy is placed in such a way that getting past undetected is next to impossible.

finished it twice now.  once back on '04 and again last year on the 360.  still as good even now.  never got that far into the next chapter though.
