6801  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Oddworld Strangers Wrath and Munch's Odyssey on the way to the PC on: December 28, 2010, 10:25:27 PM

Quote from: Crawley on December 28, 2010, 07:54:02 PM

Something to look forward. I was so disappointed in how poorly Munch and Stranger played I deleted them both as they aren't worth playing in their current forms. This or a patch fixing current issues would get me to reinstall.

Really was looking forward to playing Munch as I always regretted not picking that up in stores when I had the chance.

i played SW up past the first town and quit.  it is too jittery to play for long stretches.

Splinter Cell Collection IS coming in 2011

http://kotaku.com/5715517/splinter-cell-re+releases-creeping-up-on-the-ps3-in-2011

Quote
As we expected, seeing as it was leaked earlier in the year, Ubisoft will next year be re-releasing a box set of older Splinter Cell games on the PlayStation 3.

Called The Splinter Cell Trilogy, it's essentially a second release of a box set first put out on the PlayStation 2, only this time with "high definition" graphics. The three games included are Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory.

The Prince of Persia Collection was "royally ugly". Here's hoping Ubisoft put a little more effort into Sam Fisher's first three adventures.

no mention of Trophies

too bad they couldn't throw in the xbox 1 version of double agent.

If people are interested in the XBOX version of Double Agent, be aware it is BC on the 360, plays in widescreen and looks quite good.
i haven't seen a copy in some time, unfortunately.

I've been eying the Turtle Beach X31's, but what I really need is something that will work with my onkyo stereo, and has a mic for when I'm playing on the 360. 

Is there something that would work with that, or do I have to buy them seperately.

Anyone?

not sure why you need a separate set or anything.  the TB's all hook into both mic and RCA so you could just swap like i do.  the DSS also has a optical in, so you could plug in from the receiver that way if it has that as an output.

I saw the game has just appeared on Games On Demand on the 360,and priced at full price....i swear they don't want GoD to succeed,its easily half price now in shops

Yeah, it's definitely full priced still here, but your point is very valid, none the less. 

If they would go the Steam method, they would need an extra vault to hold all the money.  There are games I have on disk that I would buy again to have in my library for $5.

Of course, they'd have to make my library pop up faster than the 2 minutes it takes now.

if they had those kind of sales, i would actually use more than half of the 120gb drive i have now.

n64 - very few games, but good ones (perfect dark, pilotwings 64, conker's bfd, some other rare action game)

retired
ps3 60gb - sadly passed on while watching a kids movie.  may be resurrected later via sony repair.
add a new ps3 160gb slim

and UC3 looks like it will get me to replace mine. 

and done.  i ended up with two blu ray players after xmas, so i rolled them into a 160 gb system.  and as a bonus, it came with a copy of uc2, so i will have it to play for 3 hits. 

it also means i can keep the lbp2 ce i have on order. 

too bad i missed most of the psn sales though.

Having trouble deciding between Precursors and White Gold. Didn't both of these get released a couple of years ago elsewhere? I could swear I used to spend a lot of time on eBay looking for these in hard copy version...with no luck.
I just bought a new system today too, but haven't got around to setting it up.

i do vaguely recall something along those lines too, but afaik, these were only released in english via DL recently.  maybe a english fan-patch perhaps?  or early euro release.

I haven't played this in two years but after reading about it over and over and seeing it on sale I've decided to reinstall and go again.  Too bad my disc is 1.0 and it doesn't look like I have the 1.4 or 1.5 patches anymore frown  Off to download another couple gigs.

yeah, this is why i picked it up for 5 bucks on steam. it's a pain in the butt to install that enhance pack. I did all that and never got around to even playing it, heh.

also over the shoulder, really? I could not stand that view. it felt was too constricting to see what was going on around you.
it could be your lucky day then ericb as steam put it back on sale

Too bad the PC version is a port of the 360 version.  IIRC, the original Xbox version of Double Agent was actually done by the Chaos Theory team, while the 360 version was the Shanghai team that did Pandora Tomorrow, so you wound up with two different games of the same name on different platforms, but the Xbox version was actually pretty good.

had they ever ported over the xbox 1 version, i would have bought it too.

today is apparently re-run day with all of the deals being previously offered.  boo

ah, the indie game is different.  AI wars for all of 3 bucks.

Anyone recommend Chaos Theory or Double Agent? I enjoy stealth but haven't messed much with Splinter Cell.

i have no problems recommending CT if you like stealth games.  it's the best in the series.  a number of different ways to get to your objective, great looking graphics (even now it still holds up imo) and a good story that doesn't get too whacky like the last two.  it also had some of the best interrogation dialog from the guards. 

the series takes a step down with DA, mostly due to the fact it wasn't made by the CT team but the team behind SC pandora, so they added in a number of things that makes the game less fun than it should have been.  they added in a timed "base infiltration" component that pops up whenever you go back to your base (the double agent aspect) which is often more frustrating than fun and a lot of daytime missions which force you into using the heavy weapons. (the engine and shooter components are better suited to sneaking than combat).

they reverted most of that in the 5th game but changed so much more that it feels like a different game.  it was fun for what it was, but it's a huge change from the more sneakier early games.

Another day with some good deals. I recommend FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage at $2 for anyone that likes racing games.

It's decent but I wouldn't recommend UC or Flatout 2. Check the Steam forums and you'll see many think 2 was the best in the series - there's also far more playing it online .I only played UC on 360, but having played 2 for the past few days I think it's the best in the  series.

I assume you meant over instead of or?  heck, I say pick up all 3 for under 4 bucks and decide from there which one you like the best icon_twisted

I actually think the first one is the best

The 1st game is definitely very good, but for the 2nd they overhauled the graphics and updated the gameplay. Flatout 1 was crossplatform with the Xbox, whereas 2 was exclusive to the PC. That allowed Bugbear to update it with  quite a few things beyond the capabilities of the Xbox - graphics are quite a bit better.  UC is really just Flatout 2 with a graphics update to put it in line with the standards of a 360 game -  so lots more eyecandy but not much else. From what I've read in forums, the problem with UC PC is that since it's a graphical face lift of 2, it wasn't tested much and it's buggy. I didn't encounter too many bugs with the 360 version of it, but I can say it didn't really have anything over 2 gameplay-wise. But hell yes, for what they cost today you might as well get all 3 and then decide. slywink
didn't they add in more modes to UC or was that just marketing fluff?

oh, and god help me, i am considering getting both SC CT and X3TC, just for the convenience.  a little bummed the sale on civ 5 isn't that hot, but at least it keeps my backlog down.l

No Bones nor NCIS recommendations? seriously? Both shows have been going for what 6-7 seasons now, and are pretty damn awesome . Bones is a brilliant copshow with an anthropological edge to it, and some of the best chemistry I've seen between actors. NCIS is just brilliant, and keeps getting better.

huge  thumbsup for ncis.  i would give it the best nod for actor chemistry though.

i was going to try bones the first year and was immediately put off by the first episode.  there was a bit about "squints shouldn't do X" which i found horribly cliched in a bad 1980's way "oh yeah, i'll show him" and i was annoyed with the actors/characters early on.  i would assume it's ironed out the parts i found glaring though if it's gone that long.

a huge plus to breaking bad.  i have only now started to see a few episodes (thank you walking dead for following it) and it is a very dark and serious show with some great writing and characters.

i would add burn notice to the list.  and psych if you like a bit more comedy in your shows.  for more twisted comedy, always sunny in philadelphia

Might try out Fallout 3 this weekend for the first time.

I envy you,i loved that game and first time out of the Vault is one of my favourite gaming memories

Ya for some reason I've always assumed learning it would be daunting, so I stayed away.

not daunting at all until you realize you have spent 60 odd hours in the game, maxed out your level and stats, gone through all of the side quests and available dlc quests, and still haven't touched the main quest beyond opening the vault doors.  that's where i left off, minus 3/5ths of the dlc.  i eventually went back and progressed far enough in the main quest to be close enough to finish it but got distracted by all the other games that were coming out early fall. 

then FONV came out.....

must be a trend or something with this and precursors finally available in english...

i enjoyed the little of BP i could play (before the bugs and glitches got too bad) and i enjoyed it even though i never finished it.  this one looks a lot better, like a polished version of far cry 1 if crytek had taken a hiatus from coding awesome engines and put it out in '07. 

might be good for a change but $30 is a bit much for pretty much a gamble.

Picked up Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for $6.25. It's been a long time since I played a battlefield game, but I felt I needed a shooter that wasn't CoD style.

I've seen this for sale twice now but I've passed it up both times because I'm just afraid it's old enough to where no one is playing it online much. That's basically all that game is. I'd hate to buy it to find out it's dead.

It's not dead, especially now with the Vietnam DLC.

it also had a pretty decent sp campaign too.  i enjoyed it more than mw2 fwiw
