Yeah, so much for their commitment to bringing out free map content.  The only thing they released for free were a few reworked existing maps for other play modes. 

and the console specific 4 map 'training mode' for $10.  woohoo, feel the value.  yay.

i'll wait for the gold version to rent it if they add anything significant, otherwise it's holding for bc3.

good point max. 
Spoiler for Hiden:
i did the second half of the daedalus mission with jack and he didn't say a thing the whole time.  i was kind of bummed about not hearing something relayed from him about how his dad had mentioned the man who wanted to fly or something.  i also wrapped up the opiate mission and the dialogue was there, but it wasn't much different from what i would expect john to have said. 

the whole jack/john side of it makes me want to go through again and leave all of the stranger missions for him.

according to Twitter, April 1st was the day they would have announced DNF had gone gold.  not sure how true that is but yesterday was offifically the first April Fool's day with no chance of a 'DNF has gone gold!' joke being true.

i think every apriil fool's day is officially a day with no chance of a gold announcement and had been for some time.  sad, really sad.  3dr made 3000ad and john romero's claims look better in comparison.

backlog time for me.  need to clear up enough stuff in just cause 2 before i shelve it for a bit. 

i should probably admit to myself that i will not play split second and just send it back or get off the pot and load it up.

while i would love a proper movie version, i think we'll end up with another johnny mnemonic

I liked Johnny Mnemonic Truthiness!

as did i, in a guilty pleasure, but i felt like it was pretty disjointed and could have been a lot better. casting "whoa" as the lead made it too corny and took the movie in a different direction.  all in all, the casting was pretty wacky, from the red head junkie to the dr to ice-t as a rebel.  some of those scenes are just plain bad.

this one is so bad it almost circles around to good again.  almost.

it makes me very glad i sold it back then.  i was expecting it to be part of their whole project 10 dollar thing and tossed in free. 

if they went back and made it more than just four maps re-hashed and turned into co-op modes, then i could see them charging for it.  but not for the MP practice mode they were describing this as when it was announced.

at least you can do the hideouts solo in a private match.  it's the griefer a-holes who cheated their way to level 50 unlocks using casual aiming who always mess up my attempts to play the way i want to that piss me off.  if the achievements weren't public only, i would have had them by now.

7019  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: June 10, 2010, 06:06:05 PM
to trade or not to trade?  i've got most of the achievements i can without much grinding and beat the game.  if mp is really that dead, i may be able to sneak in the 10 minutes achievement, but not sure i want to bother.  it really is a great game, but with my current budget, $40 iis a great trade in value considering i bought it for $50.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Isn't he dead? And if he is magically resurrected, won't they just have to kill him again? Actually, I didn't play the DLC - who did you play in those levels?

If you really want to know

Spoiler for Hiden:
He's a clone.  That's supposed to be part of the storyline in this sequel.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Well at least that sort of fits the source material.

Fits right in!  I can't wait!  thumbsup

DLC was an alternate reality, Teg.  You played as the apprentice in those, too.

a reality which would have made for a helluva sequel.  i don't think episode 4 or 5 would have turned out the way they did.

It looks like you can only share levels with people on your Friends list.  That's a shame - I was looking forward to downloading other people's levels frown

that was the biggest flaw in trials hd too.  after the success of lbp, do devs just not get it?  if you let us build more levels, you have to have a way to share them, and not just among your friends.  

what kills me is they had that feature in the earlier versions of trials on the pc and apparently forgot their history.  

i do understand the decision (it takes $$ to keep servers up for level swaps), but if a game like crayon physics can do it on a shoestring budget, why not these guys?  

no demo and no level sharing leave me apprehensive, especially with so much on my backlog waiting.  

bullwinkle, how does this compare to similar games, control-wise?  how many levels are there?

as long as they don't kill off major characters simply due to contract negotiations and invent new ways of crappy transport (go go tunneling hamster ball!) then it might be good.  i still have the mk ost around here somewhere.

7028  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Which older game should I play? on: June 07, 2010, 05:57:49 PM
It also depends on how much time you have/want to spend on it. Both wet and ghostbusters are finishable in less than a week; GB was great fun that only got better until it hit a few rough spots. Never played Wet. Saboteur was awesome, but if I were you, having just finished red dead, it might be too much open world gaming so soon. Sacred is a diablo fan's dream set in a huge world and has tons of gameplay but starts slower than the others and is a lot longer to finish. I have more hours in it than both gta iv and red dead and still haven't finished it.

I just thought of another that I can't believe I didn't remember earlier - Alex on LOST.  That was an absolutely amazing and shocking scene.

it also cemented my hatred of the merc and i was very much on ben's side from that point on.  kudos to the writers for giving us all a second chance to see that a-hole die. 

i thought her mother was also pretty shocking, especially happening so quickly.

This isn't actually coming from Criterion, it is being made by a Codemasters studio.  Criterion made Black.

gotcha.  maybe i should look for a copy of that one next time i check the used bins.  i overlooked it the first time due to the generic name.

Fury and martial arts work pretty well.

Boss fights are definitely the big 'Huh?!' decision in the game for me. Overall the game was very enjoyable, but, the boss fights really ticked me off more than once. Sad part is if they'd handled them the same as the minor bosses it would have been fine.

In a game that tries to be fairly realistic, having guys in T-shirts or regular suits ignore being shot full auto at point blank is very jarring.

what i refer to as the 'dead rising' effect.  kill a herd of zombie with one hit of a katana or take 1/20th of a boss' health bar.

those sound fun.  there's a few about juggling vehicles among your friends that could be good for a laugh too.

interested still, but not as much.  rfg was pretty much all i could hope for in a wide open sandbox game.  i was really hoping this would have been a more out and out war between the reds and blues with a whole planet to fight over and something similar to a strategic mode.

7038  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Thinking of switching from Directv to Comcast xFinity on: June 04, 2010, 08:14:23 PM
we swapped back about 2 months ago.  we got the damn bundle as it cut down on the phone bill and got everything unified.  they bring out one box to install it and the guy spends an hour.  no problems with the install, but he charges us 100 bucks for internet install and 100 for the phone.  its the same damn box.  total rip off.  it also pretty much eliminates the savings over the old service.  to top it off, a month after we switched, they do a new bundle deal.  are we eligible?  hell no. 

since then, i've had to reset my cable modem twice via their phone support due to it losing the ip address lease and not auto-renewing.  goddamn, this is done automatically and during the three years with the last company, i never had to do this once. 

i would be looking to switch to something else entirely, but fios is still MIA and no eta and i don't want to be hit with another over-priced install fee.
