Retailers are reporting the games to be around $40-$50...........a little high for me.
between the asking price and this, i think i'll hold off a year or so. 

i also intend to pick up an ipad and upgrade the pc this year in time for ES:V so getting a second mobile gaming system is looking a bit of a reach.

i was more interested in it before i heard about it.  i liked the first one quite a bit but they've changed quite a bit in terms of character and gameplay style that it lost me.

Just picked up the 2 Riddick games for 5 bucks on sale which is cool as I havn't ever played it and always wanted to  thumbsup
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.

all in all, a terrible way to end the season.  i expected as much for the first half of the game.  too bad they finally hit their game in the end of the fourth.  could have been much better, which is at least a glimmer of hope more for next year.

at least i have my weekends back for gaming.

Last big western dev perhaps. Don't count out the Germans though. As log as they keep making Risen and similar gothic style games, we'll be ok. And there is still Two worlds 2 to look forward to.

I know how you feel about the western devs though. Now that bioware is going all action-y with DA2 and lionhead is determined to set define the absolute bare minimums of what makes an rpg, bethsoft is pretty much it over here.

That whole inheritence deal is about as relevant to the end game as the whole "npc improving her archery skills" bit was to oblivion. They migt as well show us how cool the chains look in the opening dungeon sequence.

What about gritty & imaginative?  
And then there's Mass Effect 2, which is what you should buy.

gritty and imaginative is also good for the bioshock games. 

Nier is colorful and also in a post-apocalyptic world.  it can be almost dream like at times.

definitely  play mass effect 2 if you haven't already.

Quote from: Zekester on January 08, 2011, 05:10:58 PM

I've always assumed there were submarines still around capable of taking out a carrier anyway, and wouldn't this missile be a bit easier to intercept considering the distance it would assuming to be travelling?

a missile is a hell of a lot harder to intercept than a sub.

faster top speed which both limits interception jets to just the fastest ones and how long you have before the missile hits.  then you have to wonder how accurate out anti-missile systems are.  they have undoubtedly advanced since the days of the patriot vs scud era, but it's still harder to hit a missile than it is an aircraft with any payload, especially at speed.  

now factor in their ability to strike en masse beyond our ability to take out their defenses and relative availability/cost and you could easily expect a barrage instead of single digit attacks.  

i would expect to see a wider array of support vessels with point defense systems and basically throw up a hail of lead to cut them down in advance.

of course, all this is based on speculation on both sides.  what their capabilities are and tbh, what ours are.  it's not like the US military publishes perfectly accurate data on all our weapon systems.  

pre-post edit.  
so a ballistic system is even more hard to defend against than straight cruise missiles.  which negates our interceptors and ship based anti missile systems.  unless we have actually got star wars running in the backend without letting on we did, there's a great chance of getting hit.  and like ydejin said, it only takes one strike to cripple our combat effectiveness in a strike force.  without an active battle group and carrier, we go on the defensive position.

NeoGAF has a summary of the information from Game Informer.  Most of it sounds good, but this part worries me -
"The game eventually logs a huge storehouse of knowledge about how you've played, and subsequently tailors content to your capabilities and experiences. Entering a city, a young woman might approach you and beg you to save her daughter from kidnappers. The game will look at the nearby dungeons you've explored, automatically set the mission in a place you've never visited, and designate opponents that are appropriately matched to your strengths and weaknesses."

That sounds good in theory, but it could be an absolute nightmare.  I thought Oblivion did a terrible job of scaling enemies to your abilities.  For me, every enemy was either way too easy or way too hard, and I played a pretty standard fighter/mage character.  I really hope they get it right this time.

yeah, when you can beat the main storyline at barely level 5 you can tell they tweaked it a bit poorly.
that sounds an awful lot like mob scaling to me.  icon_frown
i don't mind the idea in theory either, but it isn't as easily done if they set the enemies at static levels.  you would end up with quests you are way too weak to finish or too strong and no decent reason to finish it as the rewards will be useless.

beth, please stick to the model that gothic used.
