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.

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.
7004  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.

Does that mean you are out for both blur and SS, hark? 

I'll have to try this when I get a chance.
7006  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.
7007  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.

interested in IS if you still have it.
7009  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.
7011  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.

7013  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.
7014  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

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.
7016  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. 
7017  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.
7019  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?
7020  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.
7021  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.

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.

Great game. I go back to this on occasion just to finish up another level now and again.
7026  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.
7027  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.
7028  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.
7029  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.
7030  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Autobahn Polizei on: April 16, 2010, 09:25:41 PM
Is this the same thing as crash time 2?  I ended up with a copy after the end of year steam sales, but haven't tried it out.

How in the hell?  25 gb is way too much. This was on a single DVD for the 360.

Looking forward to the new book and I hope to go to the convention.

I officially have the 18th off for this.  Last time I took a day off for a game (ME2) a relative turned up dead.

second times a coincidence, right?

Is that a lament or a request for services?

he can't say anything on a public board. Best use code speak

"the king of Burger desires a scary clown to stain the colonel's floor on Marc Antony's birthday"

that is all.


I really want to be sick on the 18th, but they'd just call me anyways.

7036  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Faction : Guerilla on: April 15, 2010, 02:55:37 AM
Almost. I have a decent system from '06 that runs most everything now a decent quality (stalker:cop ran pretty well, as did arma 2 and opflash 2) but needed to drop the quality down to get playable frame rates. It lags down during heavy physics processing. And shadows are off as they look horribly broken.
7037  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I'm looking for a game. Help! on: April 15, 2010, 02:46:27 AM
It's a shame that both iron lore and ascaron imploded after their games. I enjoyed all of their games.

Avoid space siege but consider dungeon siege 2. It was a great clone IMO and full co-op.

I would also recommend sacred 2 on the pc. Epic game and lots of viable character builds.   
7038  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: April 15, 2010, 02:33:06 AM
I hope they get a demo for SS soon so I can decide on it or blur.  Wonder which one the forum is headed to? 
7039  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Splinter Cell: Conviction on: April 15, 2010, 02:19:55 AM
Agreed.  Chaos theory is the best of the bunch. Fun gadgets and stealth, multiple approaches without being overwhelming and great dialogue from the guards. I'd go back and play it, but the pc version and it's horrible drm (hmm, that's ironic) don't play well on 64 bit windows 7 I hear.

Just got this in the mail today. As luck has it, I got drafted into a remote support session tonight. Blech!

I heard the can't move bodies thing was a time issue- they wanted to do it but didn't have the opportunity. 
I'm not sure whether that is more funny or sad that in a game that took this long to develop they still couldn't find time to add it in.

It will be ironic if ubi Montreal's efforts here end up making us look fondly on DA as the last 'true' sc.
