Unleashed seems more like "Darth Vader tries to squash Pretty Boy like a grape. For some reason, Darth Vader doesn't do the job himself but leaves it to a bunch of cannon fodder lackeys who can't hit the side of a barn with a howitzer. Pouty boy gets ANGRY and KILLS EVERYBODY!" Sorry, but even if you want to tell a Dark Side story, that sounds thin.  icon_neutral Although come to think of it, that DOES sound like one of the last SW movies.  smirk

it's all part of Vader's plan, he gets Starkiller to go up against the clones to get the strongest of the bunch to try and take on the Emperor.

yup, and from a storytelling standpoint, it should be pretty obvious to the character that it's a set up from the get go.  if vader wanted him dead, all he had to was lop his head off with a lightsaber.  i men hell, he was chained down and everything.

Tron2.0 was awesome and felt like a family friendly (albeit simplified) System Shock 2.  This looks pretty but doesn't look like it will include any of the things that made 2.0 special.

sad but true.  2.0 was such a fun game at the time.  agree on the system shock comparison.

i forgot whether it was the boss or the lead up that got me so frustrated.  the boss had a bad trick though and i died many times before i got his pattern down.

i never played Dead Space...maybe I should

i never finished it.  played through the first few chapters as i recall.  something about getting it right in the middle of a holiday season left me feeling like i missed the boat when it launched. 
6685  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2010] - Official Gaming Trend Coverage Begins on: June 16, 2010, 06:37:32 PM
true, but the pc is a lot more open to niche genres.  i have a whole backlog of games that would never see the light of day on a console.
6686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 slim pics? on: June 16, 2010, 06:35:50 PM
i had the tray scratch up a game once and you can line up the mark with a part of the tray lining pretty easily.  it can happen a lot easier than you think too.  i went to turn the system off, stepped on a kids toy and pushed the side of the xbox instead.  nice scuffing sounds were emitted and the game was unplayable from then on.  i took it to a gamecrazy and they resurfaced the disc.  the line was still there, somewhat faded out and the game worked fine. 
6687  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Questions on modding a fat PSP on: June 16, 2010, 06:32:04 PM
i haven't dusted off the psp in over a year so all of my info is out-of-date. 

you are off to a good start though. 

to answer what i know, you should be ok with most older games and custom firmware.  i haven't kept my CFW updated so i have no idea how current the version is or what the official version is up to either.  i do know that the version you are on is/was somewhat tricky and not easily modded from before pandora. 

it's definitely an improvement for running off the memstick.  that and not having to carry around a bunch of umd's was the #1 reason i modded. 

as for copying umd to the stick, it was dirt simple with the CFW i used.  it had a menu setting which set the usb to either the stick or the umd.  you simply plugged it in the pc and it showed up as a file.  copy out and back to the stick and you were golden.  iirc, there was a homebrew which allowed you to copy to stick without a pc, but i never used it.

the closest that a main stream rts has come to getting regular xbox players in was halo wars and that didn't take off.  there have been others but there's no way rts is going to be more than a niche genre on a console. 
6689  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo's 3D House of DS on: June 16, 2010, 05:59:27 PM
that's what i am expecting too.  if they give us the 3ds first this winter, i will be very surprised. 

tbh, i don't mind a spring 2011 release. easier to spend 200 bucks on a hand held when it isn't xmas time.

That's a nice pack with Extraction included.

I'll probably still get it for 360, though.

I hope you can get Extraction seperately.
can you play it with the typical controller, or do you have to have the move?

afaik, there aren't any games outside of the sports game that requires it.

so MoH swaps out for an atv.  looks pretty decent, graphics wise.  tactical destruction and weapon mods in game.  sounds good.

with MoH mp, i don't have to wait for bc3 for the mp fix.  sweet

Huh...Medal of Honor was born on Playstation? I could have sworn it started as a PC Game, or was that just a false claim/info from Sony?

nope, the first one was on ps.  played it way back in the day.  allied assault was a few years afterwards.

you only own the content you download on PSN+ for the duration of your subscription...so you lose all the content if you go back to normal PSN?


that's it in a nutshell
6699  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2010] - Official Gaming Trend Coverage Begins on: June 15, 2010, 08:13:59 PM
yay, playstation subscription fees.  at least they deem to give you full games to play while you subscribe, and they don't try to charge us $8 a month to start.

the level creation stuff in lbp is pretty cool stuff, but i never bothered with the creation stuff myself.  

the actual game though?  nothing except user creation stuff.  did they leave out an actual game this time around and just give us an engine?
6701  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2010] - Official Gaming Trend Coverage Begins on: June 15, 2010, 08:02:28 PM

??  I read $50 + $30 for the controller.

yeah, my mistake.  they skipped past pretty quick

$80 for me, since I have the Eye.  That's with no games and no extra controllers.

Although it's nice to know I already have a lot of what I need.

i would venture that the game will be available separately.

Kevin Butler is the smartest marketing move Sony has done this generation.

great swelling music.  sure, he's aping stephen colbert, but at least he's consistent.  

lots of good little barbs at the competition.

it reminds me a bit of trine, but if it's just a magic wand game, it won't hold my attention longer than a few hours. 

it certainly looks better than the wii sports offerings that MS is showing us.

maybe MS will be smart, see all this possible misinformation about the price going around and actually give us the price.

doubt it.  they seem to want to save the price/launch announcement for their own conference. 

Which conference is that?

It's already been announced that Kinect is launching November 4th.  They just haven't announced the price.

nothing specific, but it seems they all like to announce stuff at e3 then bring out the big news for their own.  are they not doing a MS only event?  speculation on my part based on not getting a price yesterday.
