no doubt i've missed a few of the transformers, probably just recently.  while it's annoying to have that last chunk left, i wouldn't worry too much.  there are what, 300+ locations and you only need to get 100 for the achievement, unless you count the big 100%.  i've granted that i will probably never get that one due to the skydiving challenges any way, so i'm not killing time looking. 

if you want to boost that # to 100 locations, look for the seaside villages.  i've found several which have only 1 or 2 items to pick up. 

in general, i'll paraglide over the village and wait for the light to go off.  works pretty well and you don't have to keep running around buildings to do it.

ended up playing more borderlands than anything else.  god that game is fun.  i'll keep the rental until the zombie island dlc goes on sale later this month and decide whether to pick up the armory.  ms was kind to give me a 400 point code in the email, so i'm thinking about breaking my rule regarding games with multiple dlcs and just getting them instead of a gold version. 

played all of 5 minutes with bc2 and ended up playing blur instead.  a lot more fun than i usually get from racers and makes me curious about picking it up down the road. 

a little more jc2 to fill out the need for destruction.

not sure what i'll play today/tonight yet.
7043  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Splinter Cell: Conviction on: April 11, 2010, 05:04:42 PM
that bit about swapping out sam for 'generic action d00d' is what sealed it for me.  the 5 hour mark nailed the box shut.  i always enjoyed the methodical 'high-tech thief' aspect to splinter cell and after the action levels of DA, i realized how much a break from the previous games it was and did not enjoy it.  stalking around while waiting for the perfect moment to strike was what i loved about the third one.  chaos theory was the game which turned me from being a mgs stealther to a splinter cell stealther.  it's a bit disappointing that ubi montreal is behind this one as that makes it even less likely to return to its roots. 

taking the stealth aspects out of sc is like making a gta game into a canyon linear shooter without drivable vehicles.  could be fun, but it's not gta.

far cry 2 is the only game i know to take the original formula and tweak it that worked.  and even then, it was still a fps.  i don't see it as a sequel in any sense though, just a fun shooter with a cashed-in name.

7046  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo Wars manual..is there one? And where can i get it? on: April 11, 2010, 03:49:22 AM
Not sure where you'll be able to find a manual in paper form unless you buy it new. I'd recommend going to another gamestop and buying another copy. Return your used copy before the seventh day and you'll be all set.

That said, it didn't seem like an overly complex rts and there was a tutorial section in the demo.
7047  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Saboteur on: April 11, 2010, 03:44:39 AM
It's strengths outweigh it's faults IMO, and it really makes me annoyed with EA that we won't get to see where pandemic was headed. It's a great evolution and a much better game than how it was reviewed. They deserved better treatment than they were given.
7048  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Splinter Cell: Conviction on: April 10, 2010, 05:25:59 PM
It's in my gf queue, but I'm not shedding any tears if they don't send it my way. Mp sounds fun but it seems they left out the sp in favor of mp this time.

7050  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 4/09/10 on: April 09, 2010, 02:20:31 PM
Also single dad this weekend, so I would like to get time with bc2 mp. Taking a small break from just cause to play borderlands and wither darksiders or deadly premonition.

I want to drop my backlog down a few notches, but it's been a bad season to do that. Too many games, too many sales.

I'll get in if I get a chance. I want to play it as much as possible this weekend. I'm on the west coast so it's usually later in the evening when I get on.

'underwater' gear would of course float just like the regular gears; like a rock.

Interested to see what they do with the story and how they'll open up the levels.
7053  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 07, 2010, 08:46:53 PM
They need to tweak the team balancing;  last night there were three of us with four unknowns against four. After a solid beat-down the rest of our team left while they ended up at nine. We held on but there is only so much you can do in that situation. When I left on the next round, it was 9 against 2 before I bailed.

Ug.

I'm still up for BC2 so if you see me on, I'll jump ship on just cause and get some mp going.

Any word on the dr pepper codes? 

I still have a number of the achievements left, so maybe I should just wade out into the general population while it's still alive.
7057  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ps3] ryu ga gotoku (yakuza) 3 impressions on: April 06, 2010, 09:00:51 PM
Thanks scraper. I took a chance on it and got it here used as the demo looked fine. It's running pretty well so I wonder if Sony added some form of upscaling to 1080i along the way or if sega just didn't bother to put it on the box. Whenever I see it's missing, it brings back how bad fear 2 looked when I played it last year.

I haven't played much beyond the gravesite portion but it looks interesting so far.
7058  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: April 05, 2010, 07:05:03 AM
I might have taken advantage of that GS thing on red had I known about itinerary advance but at least I'll get it for $50 from them. 
7059  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/05) on: April 05, 2010, 07:02:19 AM
Nothing from this week, but I do have darksiders and deadly premonition coming from gamestop thanks to their 25% off 100$ deal, plus a pre-order for red dead for slightly more than red + deadly @ retail.

That pretty much marks the end for buying anything for quite a while.
7060  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Quake 2 in HTML5 on: April 04, 2010, 05:22:01 PM
It's not quite what it seems; there's a lot of java stuff going on in the background.  It's pretty impressive for a team effort though.

The more missions you do for the repair guy, the cheaper his prices. You can also lower them a bit with vodka, but don't give him too many. I just saved many of the guns I found until then.

There's no doubt that the m60 is godlike for long range standoffs, but up close I like the m3's RoF better. Haven't had much use with the others except for the mg36, which looks good at moderte range. I should probably use the m60 until they break it to get another gold star and the 500 LMG kills.
7064  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: In this thread we list our (sometimes irrational) dislike of certain game ge on: March 31, 2010, 07:42:27 PM
Jrpg, as turn based combat has lost the thrill as is 80+ games.
Counter strike-likes. If it isn't big I scope like cod or bc, then I won't last long playing.
Fighters. There's no way in hell I'm going to remember how to pull off the right move when the time comes.
 Dmc/gow types. Like the fighting games, there's no way I'll ever play enough to get the muscle memory to get through the insane portions.
7065  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: March 30, 2010, 03:16:26 AM
In it's own way, it's like a mix of mercs 2 and the saboteur. You have this massive space to explore and objectives all over the map with lots of stuff to destroy along the way. I'll travel from one point to the mission and clear many of the little towns along the way. It helps to break up the 'collect them all' aspect to the villages. It also means that whenever I want to start a mission, I have more than enough chaos points.

I need to find a better jet for the bridges. The harrier and the X37 are too fast for that sort of thing. 
7066  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Confirmed: USB Storage for 360 in Spring Update on: March 27, 2010, 08:09:14 PM
it annoys me to no end that they limit the partition size to 16gb.  i have several unused portable hd and there's no way in hell i'm going to bother setting up 16 separate partitions just to get the full use of a 250 drive. 

this replaces the mem card, and for that it's good, but still a damn stupid limit and totally useless for most people.

yeah, i know it's so they don't lose the sweet insane markup of their retail drives, but i can't be happy for such a nerfed feature.

7068  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamestop being sued over used games on: March 26, 2010, 07:00:59 PM
I can't fault the guy too much for waiting. He probably figured on the dlc being something he'd do on a later playthrough and never bothered to try it. Bad assumption on his part and definitely something that should have been pointed out at time of purchase.  On that at least I agree with. If it's sold with the card in the box, you might think it was unused. Not unreasonable.

He may have waited too long before trying it, but how many of us have done the same thing?  He'll, I bought DAO a week after release and only put in about two hours due to how packed the 4th quarter was.

yeah, if this isn't montreal, i'll wait for reviews and favorable impressions.

of course, it won't help when you guys go out and get it first day and i sit back with 90% of my active friends list playing it.

7077  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: March 24, 2010, 03:13:36 AM
I had my lol moment during the chase scene when I grapled one of the humvees and then grappled the ground just in front of it. The jeep roared after us and hit the end of he towline, spinning end over end and throwing the passengers out. The driver did not resume the chase.

Just got past that and out on my own. Really liked the first mission, but I wish there were fewer cutscenes in lieu of action moments. Otherwise, I'm liking it so far.
7078  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: March 22, 2010, 07:15:51 AM
Sadly, I have to agree on the m60. It's so insanely good that it needs to be balanced a bit. Guess I'll have to pick a new favorite mg. Maybe the m3.  It's a beast for RoF even if it chews through bullets much faster than I like.
