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? 

6882  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.
6883  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. 
6884  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.


6885  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.
6886  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. 
6887  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.
6888  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.

6889  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.
6890  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. 
6891  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.

6892  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.
6894  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.
6895  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.
6896  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.
6897  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.
6898  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. 
6899  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.
6900  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.
6902  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. 
6903  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 25th birthday cake on: April 23, 2010, 11:45:50 PM
that's pretty frickin cool.
6904  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.
6905  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
6906  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.
6907  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. 
6908  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.
6910  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Splinter Cell: Conviction on: April 22, 2010, 09:35:11 PM
Those will come in handy for sure, especially on last stand maps.

Finishes sp last night. Man, what a convoluted story that was. It makes the worst days of 24 seem plain in comparison.

Who's up for the co-op campaign?
6911  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 22, 2010, 09:32:13 PM
I've got two, but no way to get more. Would love to bum two from you Teggy.
6912  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Men in Black 3...... D! on: April 22, 2010, 09:27:03 PM
If they can get the same writing quality as the first and the 3D in the same league as Avatar, I'll be glad to spend the extra bucks to rent the glasses. Just don't skimp on the cinematography. That kind of crap can put a dent in how well 3D movies are respected.   
6913  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: iPhone 3GS Augmented Driving App on: April 22, 2010, 02:02:09 PM
You don't have to look at the gps while you are driving unless you need a quick update on distance to next turn. An AR HUD app is something that you should be watching a lot more often.

6916  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: [Steam] Trine for 5 bucks! on: April 20, 2010, 02:35:50 AM
Great game. I go back to this on occasion just to finish up another level now and again.
6917  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/19) on: April 20, 2010, 02:14:20 AM
Myto, you should play it now. I just got back into it with the armory and I'll be getting the zombie one tonight.

I'll join up with you for the zombie island.
6918  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Let's talk Iphone on: April 19, 2010, 11:35:53 PM
yeah, i remember the post they did to try getting their hands on the ipad.  perhaps apple thought it would be a good option after all and decided to make some good coin as well as get free 'exclusive, FIRST!!!' coverage on giz.

meanwhile, i really hope this ties in with a 4g model, but that's got to be next year's lure i guess.  still, happy to have this new version to upgrade as the 3g is a shade underpowered with newer apps/games. 

i really really really want this to have better cell reception.  i've dropped more calls with the iphone on 3g at 4 and 5 bars than i ever did with the old phone at 2 or 3 bars.  it's just pathetic and why i've since set the phone to use edge only.  yay at&t.  i'd gladly move to another carrier if it was cost-effective.
6919  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 4/16/10 on: April 19, 2010, 02:47:08 AM
I fell back into the addiction of Borderlands now that I've picked up the armory dlc and plan do so with the zombie island once it goes on sale later this week.

I do need to get back to sc:c and finish it up before long.
6920  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Autobahn Polizei on: April 17, 2010, 01:59:27 AM
Ah got it. I should load up ct2 and see if it's decent.
