this is coming out on the 21st for 1200 points.  start of their summer of arcade deal with this deal:

Limbo - July 21
Hydro Thunder Hurricane - July 28
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair - August 4
Monday Night Combat - August 11
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - August 18

buy 3, get 400 points back.  buy all 5, get 1200 points back. 

i didn't end up getting all of the games in last year's promo, but i did end up with 3 of them after a sale on trials HD.  not sure i have much interest in getting more than limbo, castlevania and Lara croft this time around and $45 is a bit more than i want to spend on downloadable games atm. 

it's also when the new arcade experience is going to hit, apparently

6684  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Rising 2 Announced!!! on: July 08, 2010, 05:21:32 PM
just like when we get stuff you guys don't, i hate it when a cool version of a game i am looking forward to does the same thing to us. 

oh well, at least we'll be able to buy the dlc later, for a "nominal fee". 
6685  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: July 08, 2010, 05:19:26 PM
zombies are fine, but by the time this hits, dead rising 2 will be out and that will meet my needs for zombie killing just fine.  makes little sense either. 

odd that we have to pay for anti-griefing measures in free roam though.  i wonder what they have in mind for that.  better not be a variation of the "take his loadout".  it needs to be worked on somehow though.  too often you can work on a specific challenge only to get shot by random a-holes for no reason at all.  we've attempted to get the 10 minutes as a most wanted achievement several times only to attract every bored 14 y/o in the region just working to screw someone else over.  it really makes the game less enjoyable at times.
6686  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Want to buy some older titles on: July 08, 2010, 05:47:06 AM
i might have mech 2 mercs regular hanging around dae. 

i have a bunch of other stuff, maybe not as old, but taking up space as it is.  give me a few days and i'll post a list.
6687  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bioshock 2 update problems with GFWL on: July 08, 2010, 05:42:59 AM
i feel your pain on this, but without the added help of steam.  bought red faction through d2d and there was a manual update and a gfwl update.  i really hate that i couldn't seem to get a manual gfwl update for the game as the damned internal patching interface sucks d-balls.  no damn progress meter meant i never knew if it was working or stalled out. 
6688  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 'Call of Pripyat' on: July 08, 2010, 05:40:45 AM
yeah, a few of the mods would really help make the early game more enjoyable, but then again, i made it through CoS unmodded and unpatched, so i didn't have near enough trouble adapting.

never mind the damn fort in the second map in clear skies though.  that damn mounted mg and armored russina soldiers took ages to bypass with the early trash loot. 
6689  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xpadder and PC Gaming on: July 08, 2010, 05:37:47 AM
if they did, i would buy one immediately.

well that's kinda dumb; I was only kinda mildly enjoying this game but the fact the devs didn't test to see (or care) that something like that could happen with the patch pretty much kills my interest  thumbsdown

+ stupidity, especially considering how easy it would have been to add that fix during the update itself.  hell, i've scripted more complex registry fixes myself so it should have been a no brainer for them.  makes me wonder if they will 'forget' about this the next time an update is released. 
6691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: ME2 question on: July 07, 2010, 04:35:47 PM
np.  the also added a few via the cerberus network.  it's worth downloading if you bought the game brand new. 

the paid content is pretty good though, from what i have heard.  it's all a few hours length and integrates within the main game nicely.

ooh, lots of rain means it's going to get real damn muggy there even if the temp is down.  be ready when the rain and clouds stop and the sun comes out.  that's retiree killing weather right there

i wish i could point out a good joint to eat at, but all we saw was a Sonic and some unknown chinese buffet out in the sugarland area.  i'm sure you can find a good bbq joint though.

I have nothing but fond memories of Damage.  He still rests on my friend\'s list.  I doubt I will ever remove him from that list myself.  He deserves to continue holding that spot.

I'm at 98 people on mine, and I feel the same way. (I sent him a PM in case, somehow, he still gets notifications frown)

when i read this the other day, i actually viewed his avatar for a while as it played with the little warthog.  i won't be removing him from my list either.

hit the toll roads if at all possible.  when i visited a few years back, it was a huge time saver instead of using the freeways. 

houston in july.  drink lots of water, bring sunblock for when you sprint from a/c to a/c and have a good hat on when you do.  keeps the scalp from getting burned.

hard to say whether the super discounted stuff is permanent or not.  i can't think of another time when 90% off was offered before on anything on xbla.

on the library page, hit the drop down for 'all games'.  it tallies all of the categories you have and gives you a nice total.
6698  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xpadder and PC Gaming on: July 07, 2010, 04:10:39 PM
not being able to use the 360 controller outside of games was one of the big reasons i was disappointed by it's implementation by ms.  good to hear that there's a program which makes it easier to use.

i remember an older controller which had this kind of software as part of the package.  very useful.  i'll have to look this one up.  thanks
6699  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: ME2 question on: July 07, 2010, 04:07:45 PM
there are a number of side missions you find through exploration.  every once in a while, you will get a planet scan and the ai will chirp that there's a beacon on the planet somewhere.  you zero in on it and when you do, you can land there.  many of them are multi-stage and lead you to other planets.  they don't really give you a huge xp boost though, but they do give you decent money.  it also fleshes out the world quite a bit of course.

you can find them via email as well as sometimes someone will ask for help.  iirc, some of them can also be hinted at in news broadcasts.  i forget the exact number of side missions, but there were quite a few of them. 
6700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass effect 2 Launch and impressions (the REAL One) on: July 07, 2010, 07:48:19 AM
hey, with this pack, we can finally get more than 4 sniper rifles.  that ought to be worth 5 bucks all by itself.
6701  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Miss your old SNES or Sega Genesis? Then this is for you! on: July 07, 2010, 07:47:44 AM
and we need this why?


because we haven't had enough of these old classic games, what with the gb/gbc/gg//gba/ds/psp/n64/wiivcdc/ps1/ps2/ps3/gc/xb/xbla/pc/emu remakes/ports/compilations/revisits/reimages so far and need yet another reason to buy the same exact game for the fifteenth time for nostalgia's sake. 









but if they have gunstar heroes, i'm in
6702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Puzzle Kingdoms (Puzzle Quest "sequel") on: July 07, 2010, 07:41:48 AM
also bought for a buck.  hell, why not?  i'd even buy ship sailor extreme! or whatever the hell that game is for a buck.

whether i'd play it is another story though.

glad to hear this wasn't a bad gamble.
6703  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ship Simulator EXTREME! on: July 07, 2010, 07:39:20 AM
unless you can crash your ships together in spectacular wrecks, i'm not interested.









well, even less interested than i was when this was first mentioned.

list of mods/patches.  not sure what still works though.

For those interested, Moonbase Alpha is now available for everyone on Steam.  It is free.

I will have a review up in the next day or two.

downloading now.

for those of you who played the beta, how is it?  free is good, but bad stuff for free is rarely worth the effort
6707  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destination Arcade-another feature for the 360 on: July 06, 2010, 08:25:48 PM
it's good by me.  as it is now, going through the arcade market is a bit of a pita unless you know what you are looking for.  it's also a mess to get to the games you own if you are like me and set it download all the demos.
6708  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: (360) XBL question on: July 06, 2010, 08:22:44 PM

6709  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [XBLA] Limbo on: July 06, 2010, 06:31:45 PM
a side-scrolling platformer with an unusual style, out later this summer.

giantbomb's preview looks pretty interesting and makes the game seem quite interesting.  very dark and at times, disturbing. 

6710  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Any XBL points deals floating around? on: July 06, 2010, 06:20:16 PM
beat to the punch by grim. 

best place to check is on cag.  they have a pretty good eye for spotting these while they last.

I thought this wasn't out until tomorrow because of everyone observing the 4th on the 5th but Gamestop is showing my local store has them now, and it happens to be next door to where I'm going to lunch today....

goodbye work productivity for the day.

likely some bioshock 2 and maybe red dead coop.

still playing bits and pieces of the other games, but nothing has really caught me lately.

plan on trying some of the games bought during the steam sale.

didn't touch either game at all and barely turned on the 360 other than to play the tropico 3 demo.  friends came over on the 4th and played a bunch of random games looking for something fun. 

i tempted addiction once again by getting civ iv colonization and firing it up.  damn, that "just one more turn" aspect just as strong as ever. 
6714  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: In where I rename my office to Mount Doom on: July 05, 2010, 09:12:40 PM
you could visit up here.  it freaking rained yesterday and parts of last week and it's only going to get as high as 69 today.  it's only been above 70 a handful of days this year and i don't think it broke 80. 

we are getting heat very late in the season though.  it's expected to be 90 on friday.  hooray wacky pacific northwest weather.  you can't plan anything further than a week in advance or it just might be raining. 
6715  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown 2: Impressions and Reviews incoming! on: July 05, 2010, 09:02:48 PM
that's kind of cool then.  i loved revisiting saints row to see how the neighborhood had changed.  tbh, other than some of the structures in crackdown 1, i don't really remember the city landmarks.

i would assume that something interesting has been done to the agency building though.

i can't even access the steam store, wow.
CeeKay took EVERYTHING, Steam doesn't have anything left to sell!  icon_eek icon_lol

I swear, once my Steam games list hits 300 I'm done! icon_lol

I'm only at 110 (including the 30 games in the complete Popcap collection)

that makes my 71 feel a bit better.  but not by much.  at least 30 of those were due to my winter sale mistake though and several were rebuys to avoid the physical media. 
6717  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown 2: Impressions and Reviews incoming! on: July 05, 2010, 05:19:49 PM
that might be the best way to play it or you'll have higher level smacktards joining up to grief you and mess with your game. 

keeping my fingers crossed that it will be in the mail soon.

for anyone looking to snag this, kmart is having a launch day sale.  a $20 credit on other MS stuff.  not as good as a price drop, but still money in your pocket and a good way to save on getting a live card if your sub has expired.

went back and picked up civ IV complete, despite having the original CE in the box.  colonization sounds like fun and i'll be able to see what that whole "fall from heaven 2" mod is about.

passed on star wolves after spending some time looking at the reviews.  sounds like wasted potential mixed with some fun, but after this sale, i had to stop somewhere.  also held back on crazy machines 2;  have enough puzzle games already.
6720  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (07/05) on: July 05, 2010, 08:17:24 AM
hopefully getting "super plumber butt arrow number", as ceekay put it, via gamefly.  sent both games in a week early to make sure at least one of them was back before this week.
