It seems a bit twisted that we have designed robots to decide whether we are human or robots.

It's true, Deckard was an android.

from the link you posted here.

Just enter the coupon code “PAX” and get $5 off instantly for any purchase over $15!

oh well, i guess you could get a few of the deals and then use the code to save a few more.  not a bad deal i guess. 

and fwiw, i haven't even installed star wolves (the game i got for $2.50 in july) as it was a 4+ gb zip file that needs to be extracted and i haven't committed to spending the 2+ hours it estimates it would take to extract.  and 7zip is supposedly faster.

too bad they locked it to $15 minimum; I used the last $5 off to get a game for $2.50. Would have loved to get tropico 3 for a buck.

Sounds like the DNF by gearbox rumor is true. Let's hope it doesn't sink them when the game fails to impress enough for the hype.

i wasn't able to get either of the games back to gamefly in time, so i will have to wait this one out.  by that time, halo reach will be out anyways, so i kind of doubt this game will get any love.

6889  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Valve has 3 big surprises in store for us in the next 12 months.... on: September 02, 2010, 05:25:48 PM
exactly.  what we'll probably get is a new l4d game/expansion, more news about portal 2 and probably something about tf2 in that telltale game.  i doubt we'll get anything ground breaking unless its for something a few years out.  the problem is, it's already been 6 years since hl2, which is as long as it took to get the second one out, even with the code steal and last month delay.  as it stands, we haven't been given any details in a few years about episode 3, let alone half life 3. 

i also attribute some of the indifference to announcements in general.  i'm tired of getting all excited for the potential only to be disappointed by the actual.  wake me when it's news, not hints of news.  this pre-announcement crap is getting old.

The problem with waiting is how bad N is about price drops on it's firs party stuff. They had twilight princess for full price for more than half of the time since release day. No sure how bad this is now as I haven't had a wii in over a year. ( I do wonder what I miss out on though)
6893  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: what games do you regret not finishing? on: September 01, 2010, 07:57:39 AM
okami is a good example for me.  i forget where i left off but knowing how the game was structured would make it almost impossible to know where to go if i loaded it up. 

ff12.  for the life of me, i couldn't get into it despite hearing all the good things about it.  biggest example from my pile of underplayed jrpg's.

i never finished sotc either, despite picking it back up again on the ps3 and getting to within the last 2 or 3 bosses.

Like that sale a few days ago with them for $30. $65 means no sale for now. My play & charge is ok for now. I do wish I could find some batteries by themselves though. Mine are getting a bit old.

From what I heard on CAG, you can stack up to three years on to the end of the current month. Not sure how reliable that is tbh, but the cards usually have a decent life span before they themselves expire, so you could have q few in reserve.

I did the speed achievement last night using the dragster you get in chapter 8 down the wide east-west bridge. Start on the east side and you should hit the speed by 3/4ths of the way across with enough time to stop.

You might be able to do it with the speedy car you get from a friend later on, but my attempts ended up in wrecks.

I only have the wanted posters to track down and I am all done.

Leaning towards two worlds 2 and risen 2 myself. The team behind arcania is the same who made gothic 3 forsaken lords? and that's generally considered the weakest of the series.

Every jrpg since ff7 in my collection as they mark the death of my interest in the genre.

I haven't finished any rpg's in a while except for the mass effect games and sacred 2 either so it's not just jrpgs.  
6904  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II on: August 31, 2010, 12:16:26 AM
Finished the game with a nice glitch.  I picked up a Thompson with a glitched ammo counter that started at 1000 in the clip. It never needed to be reloaded and didn't revert to normal when I did. It also stuck with me through chapter 14 and 15. Made the last battle a lot easier. I finished the game with several hundred rounds spent.

Yeah, that ending is a bit harsh, isn't it?  Not what i expected at all.

With that and some of the other moments in the game, it really left you feeling like an a-hole at the end, didn't it?  "Cleaning up after Joe", for instance.

About chapter 14
Spoiler for Hiden:
As for that car you start out with, I pegged it as soon as I saw it. It was a very odd feeling to know what was coming.

to a point.  it doesn't scale to you if you are level 50, like i was when i finally got it.  it's designed as the first dlc after beating the game so it should be right up your alley.  not sure if moxxi scales or what the ranges are but other than adding a storage chest, is considered the weakest of the 3.  knox is the biggest and best of the dlc and iirc, scales to you with one exception, a major boss named crawmerax, who is set at 62?  anyways, you can't go wrong with the zombie one and knox if you want to keep going. 

you could also start on playthrough 2 which starts the enemies out at a higher level to match your current one and see how much of a challenge it would be.

if you decide to get zombie island, don't wait too long. 

I had a character that just started playthrough 2 and I tried to go through Zombie Island.  It was impossible.  I would say if you wanted to play Zombie Island on playthrough 2, you need to get half-way through playthrough 2 before you're going to survive.

that sounds about right.  i was half way through p2 when i got zombie island.  it may have been less than 50 now that i think of it, but the mobs were no match.  barely dented the shield, even the last boss.  however, the armory on playthrough 2 is difficult even if you are level 50.  mobs start at 51/52 there and they are tough.  lots of resistances and all of them armored.

i haven't had any use for the added features either and now that netflix will be on ps3 sans-disk, no possible reason to need it for anything other than mp.  the price increase is a bit annoying but i'll stock up on cards before that happens.  fwiw, you can only stack up to 3 years to your account but the card will remain valid for a while.  i had 3 1 month cards i bought way back in '07 when i got the system and used them without problem this year, so you should be covered for a while at least.

Quote from: Razgon on August 30, 2010, 04:34:06 PM

I know you are looking at it from a developer/disitrbutor point of view ,but look at it this way.

Take the greatest game you ever played...wouldnt you love it if it could continue for years, new content keeping coming out? Thats what MMO's does,and thats what I would love to have as a singleplayer game as well-

tbh, i often lose interest even in my favorite games after a while.  my shelf is littered with examples of "A" games that i burnt out on, even before the dlc hits.  the business model you describe wouldn't be anything i would subscribe to for anything more than the first month or two.  hell, i think my all-time highest hours played would still go to ff7 and that's how long ago?  i don't get addicted to them as much as i used to, but i still have the addiction for something new.  

if a game like oblivion, fallout 3 or red dead redemption can't keep me going back with new stuff, how can anything else?  at most, if those games expanded with whole new regions, i might go back to see, but without the new feeling (and accompanying forced restart) the drive to explore it isn't as big for me.  i would rather have fallout vegas be separate than have it as one more big dlc for fo3 and will get much further with it this way.
