Woohoo. Finally able to put this down now. It was fun while it lasted but it's time to move on. Considering I was only able to get 3 demo kills during 36 hours of mp and noone on my list is still playing, I can live without those two cheeveos.

Time for some love for he backlog until I grab nier.


And yes, RDR is the next big thing, mp and sp. Two weeks left.
6762  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: May 03, 2010, 08:01:35 PM
The last few times I've logged in and nobody on my list is playing.  I hope to wrap up my time with it tonight by hitting level 22.

My nights have been very hit or miss.  It's either great fun with good matchups or completly lopsided affairs with the winning team @ 50+ tickets left.  I have given up on rush though. Haven't had a good team playing that mode in ages.


Hark, you still playing this? 
6763  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (05/03) on: May 03, 2010, 06:28:26 PM
Likely to pick up Nier@Kmart@$40 this week if I can find a copy.

Interested to hear if picross is good in 3D. Loved the first one.
6764  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nier, action/adventure beat-em-up from Square Enix on: May 03, 2010, 06:25:50 PM
I think I'll trade in bc2 and use that to pick nier up.

Nuts to me and my backlog.

So is he talking about the game or the movie? I assume it's the movie.

I would guess he's annoyed that the game blows chunks again. EG gave it a ~5 and said how disappointing it was considering how cool it should have been.

Can't wait to see this.
6766  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nier, action/adventure beat-em-up from Square Enix on: May 03, 2010, 06:13:34 AM
Damn fine take on it KG. That makes it almost imposible to ignore this game while the Kmart deal is going on despite the short time before red dead and my insurmountable backlog.

Any idea how long this is with the first playthrough?

Right here in town and I hadn't heard about it yet. It's fantastic that they got so many different people to participate.

yeah, you would think the closing of two major freeways for any length of time would have noticed. 

the pic of the kid is priceless, but i fully expect to see it P-shopped on the net before long.
6768  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FT: Call of Juarez:BiB on: May 01, 2010, 04:20:22 AM
daehawk, it's a pretty good sequel with two playable characters with different abilities.  it does away with most of the annoyances of the first one and looks pretty damn nice.  i also really enjoyed the weight and feel of the guns you use.  it made the firefights pretty intense and not just 'halo with a 6 piece'. 

recommend it if you like westerns.
6769  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam: Rockstar Week on: May 01, 2010, 03:40:31 AM
i dl'ed them a while back but never played them.  go team backlog!

6770  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FT: Call of Juarez:BiB on: May 01, 2010, 03:32:36 AM
great game. 

which platform is it btw?
6771  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 30, 2010, 06:59:11 PM
I was all set to make last night the swan song and trade it in today. I had some annoyances early on that really underscores how important good squads and communication are and almost packed it up.  I also got to see how dull a 2 vs. 3 conquest match on the big map can be. The very next match with full squads was just epic though and until I stopped playing, I was with a bunch of good players the whole time.  It also helped that I was able to get the special forces smg insignias for 100 kills and the 10k points for doing so. I made more progress last night than I did in the last few days combined.

I also got the airkill achievement and I had pretty much stopped trying for it.

I'll hold onto it for the weekend and keep my fingers crossed that the lag and balancing quirks don't kill my enjoyment. 
6772  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: April 30, 2010, 02:41:53 PM
Not really sure I want them, but it's cool to see them add stuff like this.

Did you get the ice cream truck as well? 

6773  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Demon's Souls $34 (PS3) on: April 29, 2010, 03:40:32 AM
if you look now and use the 15off code, you can get it shipped for 30.59 before s&h. 

now, to decide if yet another game on the backlog (especially one known for its difficulty and epic campaign) with RDR on the horizon. 

damn tempted.
6774  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2010-games list leaked? on: April 29, 2010, 02:50:59 AM
This was four weeks too late.

Some of this isn't a surprise, like me3 and bc3, but I really question anything like indigo 2. Quantic dreams takes years between games and they just releases heavy rain. I don't expect anything out of them until E3 2012. 
6775  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 29, 2010, 02:39:37 AM
36 is about as much as I'd hope for trade in.  I'm surprised and just a bit tempted to trade it in now before they lower it.


6776  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alan Wake: the end is near! on: April 29, 2010, 02:31:10 AM
That's what gamefly is for.  Those are pretty much the only games I'm interested in until fall. The rest will be played if they send them.  Otherwise it's clearing out the backlog.
6777  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Job go bye bye on: April 28, 2010, 11:56:08 PM
ouch teggy.  sorry to hear that.  hope it ends up better than the old gig for you. 
6778  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 28, 2010, 11:54:08 PM
yeah, that's pretty good and no doubt better than gamestop.  might be worth the effort by then.
6779  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Medal of Honor: Modern Warfare on: April 28, 2010, 11:52:17 PM
i can only speak from experience.  i've seen more lag in the last few weeks than i did in the first month. 

either way, it's still ea's servers though, so i don't think there will be much difference.

6780  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Medal of Honor: Modern Warfare on: April 28, 2010, 08:02:25 PM
Beginning to see this more and more these days, unfortunately. Lag is getting worse and the lack of team balancing is annoying.

I'll give them a try with this one, but if I start seeing it again, I'll just dump the game and move on.
6781  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 28, 2010, 04:38:37 PM
i had some fun last night after the last batch of gt'ers went to sleep.  played conquest with whatever squad i could join.  i stayed an engineer the whole time.  wracked up a bunch of exp and pins/insignia. 

had a great moment when i took out the russian bradley with a full squad and the engineer who hopped out to repair it.  also rained death down on them when they sat at the flags.

then i got to play two rounds with that big ass desert conquest map.  man, that was epic.  combat heli's owned the hell out of the tanks and i had the joy of doing an end run around and stealing theirs out from under them.  between the four of us flying/gunning, they weren't able to get further than the middle flag and were never able to hold it long. 
6782  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 27, 2010, 08:43:07 PM
That's basically it too.  RDR is going to push this into back burner territory as far as mp goes. Nevermind blur or split second, whichever ends up on top.

6783  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: (360) Deadly Premonition on: April 27, 2010, 08:39:39 PM
Finished?  Haven't started yet. Backlog when I got it and darksiders. I've also been front loading my backlog and have a few other games I haven't touched yet.

class based for a change?  hellz yeah.

I don't think it will be though. Hark mentioned this was more like "choose your armor with stats" while the weapons remain pick ups.

My interest level was dropped a bit on that.

classed based?  I could be in for some MP too then.
6785  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: April 27, 2010, 02:28:49 PM
Don't think my store is going to do a midnight release, so no choice in it shy of changing to the bigger store in the mall.
6786  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 27, 2010, 02:22:32 PM
Well hell. Based on active players, there won't be anyone left in a few weeks;  there's a bunch who've already traded or shelved it as it is now.

I wouldn't recommend it on mp alone at this point unless you have a high tolerance for frustration and don't mind the occasional one-sided match. Sadly, the game does such a poor job of refilling and balancing games, you'll end up seeing this a lot more now.

In three weeks, with a bunch of new games on the way, this will be gone off pretty much everyone's list, new maps or not.
6787  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: This year's Game You Need to Know About: Split Second on: April 27, 2010, 06:57:55 AM
Does that mean you are out for both blur and SS, hark? 

I'll have to try this when I get a chance.
6788  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 27, 2010, 06:54:34 AM
Still in on a semi regular basis like normal. I don't play unless there's other gt'ers on, but when there's at least a few on, I'll join up. Still enjoy it even though the general population has dropped.
6789  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam: Rockstar Week on: April 27, 2010, 03:53:14 AM
hoping they do the same as d2d and have gta4 for seven fiddy.  not having to deal with the d2d patches would be a benefit. 

that and the episodes for cheap. 
6790  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FS: Infinite Space, Little King's Story on: April 27, 2010, 03:51:35 AM
interested in IS if you still have it.
6791  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 4/23/10 on: April 26, 2010, 02:34:15 PM
Played through the zombie dlc in borderlands and made progress in the armory. Tried out the skinned weapons in bc2 and finally was able to get the dentist achievement.

Did a dozen races in just cause 2. Finding them to be pretty easy to beat, even when I botch it and wreck the car. I also knocked out a few more achievements there.

too late unless you go for the DIrect2Drive sale.  Now they have Resident Evil 5 on sale for $24.99.

yeah, that's what i was thinking, despite the hassle of patching up d2d games.  still, it would probably just end up in my permanent digital backlog. 

amazed that re5 is still going for that much.
6793  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Who is on Goozex? on: April 24, 2010, 01:21:17 AM
well that's good to know.  pretty much expected, but it would keep them from being in my permanent backlog. 
6794  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 25th birthday cake on: April 23, 2010, 11:45:50 PM
that's pretty frickin cool.
6795  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Alien the Prequel on: April 23, 2010, 11:42:12 PM
can't recommend them enough.  the books are also easy to pick and read quickly.

start with the first three listed here.

i've only read the first 4 or 5 and two of the avp novels (not movie tie-ins and again, much better than the movies)

if you can get the graphic novels, go for it. 

the books are easily found pretty cheap at used book stores.
6796  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Alien the Prequel on: April 23, 2010, 11:27:49 PM
i hope they leave it the hell alone and spend most of the time showing how deceitful and evil weyland is with weaponizing the species. 

of course, had they just bothered to follow the dark horse comics arcs instead of the crap we got, all would be right with the universe. 

how the hell we ended up with 'bald and unarmed' and 'why aliens and humans can never have kids'.

never mind the crossovers.  :barf
6797  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Games for Windows Live Spring Sale Week 3: Grand Theft Auto IV 50% off on: April 23, 2010, 11:23:30 PM
once again tempted, but seeing as i have the 360 version and my pc would cry running this, i'll hold onto my seven-fiddy.  the mods sound interesting though.
6798  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: April 23, 2010, 11:21:11 PM
i'm really just looking forward to running around in the west with friends and getting into big gunfights with bandits or lawmen.    only 4 weeks left. 
6799  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Who is on Goozex? on: April 23, 2010, 11:11:30 PM
you know, i have a bunch of games i never play and have not been able to sell.  do you get a benefit for referring?  if so, lmk and i'll pm you my addy

Legendary Edition details, and some guy with an epic beard yappin' away.

That's quite the edition.

personally I like the look of the limited edition better.

ditto.  while i'm sure the statue is pretty cool, it's not cooler than a second game. 

class based for a change?  hellz yeah.

plus i'm sure the co-op will be awesome.
