yeah, i don't understand that bit either.  are they trying to tell us that any of the previous games released DLC are not over 2 gigs?

Will anything that runs in vista run in 7? She doesnt run anything out of the ordinary generally but does have some software that runs her sewing machine i might be concerned about.
if it works in vista, she should be ok.

Incredibly difficult combat

I'll wait for a demo.

There's a demo out on PSN in Europe.  I'm not sure why it hasn't been released in the US yet, but I assume it will be available soon.

can you get a euro account ala 360 and d/l it that way?

7085  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: which Windows 7 do I need? on: September 28, 2010, 11:23:27 PM
it all boils down to this:
do you want/need to run programs in windows xp that don't work in vista/win7?
do you need to join the pc to a domain? 
do you need to back up to a network attached device?

based on 2 and 3 being more than the usual home user needs, i would say go with premium.  windows xp mode is nice but in all likelihood, she won't need to worry about that either unless she works from home or has a side job with very specific needs.

those three things are not worth the extra 80 bucks for the retail version for the majority of people.

I would love a 3d take on the 2d gameplay. I don't know why they haven't done this already considering that the metroid prime games had a healthy dose of that gameplay.

Like this 3/10 for QT from Eurogamer?



that's pretty bad it turned out so horribly.  sounds like the one good point to make about the game doesn't even take place until half-way or more through the game.

ironic that in a week's time this has gone from "maybe possible" to definite for me.  first i bumped the mech game until hearing more favorable impressions, then i played the demo and found it much more enjoyable than i expected; plus the confirmation that arcania isn't quite impressive at this point, and finally the news that two worlds 2 was bumped to january. 

i guess this is the gamers' saints way of getting me ready to play this game.

what? Two worlds is next week?!

that's what all the stores/online sites are saying.  it was originally supposed to be out the same day as Halo: Reach, but they were smart and delayed it.

and ti just got delayed until January 2011.

word has it that TW2 has just been delayed until January 2011  crybaby

yup, the date on gamefly is now 1/4.  crap on a cracker.  

silver lining, it won't get trounced by fable 3 (i know, different approach and all) for followers.  it also means that fantasy rpg's are down to fable and arcania, which i tried and am not overly impressed by.  

so enslaved gets the spotlight next week.

9-27
C&C4 - $14.95
Midnight Club 2 - $4.95

also, it looks like the kotaku and twitter codes have ended so if you missed the shot at civ v for $40, it's time to wait.

Got the email, DR2 is in the way. If it's good, I'll goozex it later for keeps ormaybe fet front mission.

I really hope two worlds 2 is next week and isn't plagued by any old (or new, for that matter) problems. I haven't been interested in divinity 2 or dragon age and need a good rpg.

you have the same card i do BJ.  top of the line dx9 card but incapable of all the newer bells and whistles of the newer games.  what i would look for in the requirements is for things added since dx9 that are specifically hardware based and therefore will not be possible on our cards.  i find that most games don't have to have that stuff, but look much better if it did.  still run pretty well though and performance wise, able to run at mid-high resolutions without too much stutter.  i had arma 2 and dragon rising running on this machine without too much trouble and they still looked ok to me.  if your eyes (or budget) are better than mine, you might disagree though.  biggrin

not much advice for learning the kanji except know that it takes quite a long time to get a grip on the written language.  i attempted it 10 years back, both written and spoken and never got very far, even using anime and manga as a stepping stool.  i would definitely look into local classes or software (rosetta stone is expensive, but from what i have heard, pretty good) as some structured learning beats dabbling in my book.  unless you have that rare talent to pick up the language as if you were born there.  i am not one of those people.

7110  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Xbox Live: Renew for 12 months for $29.99 on: September 25, 2010, 07:17:16 PM
the whole thing has been a bit wonky, but from the massive cag thread i have gleamed a few things.  one, the deal is supposed to be available to everyone, silver or gold members alike.  two, it runs through the 27th of september, so if you see it now, you have two days left to get it.  three, prior dashboard deals like the $1/1 month deal or the deal they ran on labor day have been shown to interfere with the deal showing up on the page.  best bet is to cancel the current promo (some have had success getting the previous deal voided and refunded) and then getting the new one.  four, best way to get in on this now would be via the Live twitter account or via the Live 800 number.  if i can find these, i'll update the post.  should be easily googled fwiw.

and the codes will be sent 4-6 weeks after you buy the deal, so sometime in november most likely.

np ceekay.  i am downloading the demo off of steam now to see if my rig will handle it or if i should just stick with civ iv. 

bullwinkle, from what i have read, they don't stack.  not sure on whether they stack on combined orders over that amount as it's always been hit or miss for those.  probably better to stick with the 5 off of 15 codes if you have a handful of items you are interested in anyways.
7113  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Direct2Drive Summer Sale Day 24: Red Alert 3 day on: September 25, 2010, 04:49:34 PM
kotaku got a good coupon code if you were late on the trigger for civ v.  

KOTAKUDEAL - $10 off $49.95 or higher
D2DTWITTER - $10 off $49.95 or higher, valid on pre-orders

they also have the next two days of 24-hour sales

Saturday - confirmed.
Star Wolves 3 - $10.25
The Stronghold Collection - $14.95

Sunday
Crysis Maximum Edition - $19.95
Sid Meier's Railroads - $5.95

we'll see if this is true, but the code is a good boost and if you do get it from d2d, civ v can be activated on steam and downloaded (and updated) through it

got that for $2.50 a while back and the interface takes some getting used to.  it looks ok and from what i have read on the various forums, it's like a big, freeform universe with a rpg/rts mix where you gain xp and improve your character traits and mange a mothership with a complement of fighters. 

i haven't put much time into it but it does seem at first glance like a homeworld style game on steroids.  remember though, steroids have as big a drawback as they have a benefit.  sw3 seems to fit that description so far.

7118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Rising 2 Announced!!! on: September 24, 2010, 09:52:29 PM
i am disappointed a bit after reading the review.  sounds like the plucked the exact same game structure in a new coat of paint and level design rather than change any of the fundamentally annoying aspects that drove me off the first one. 

time limit?  i really hated this mechanic as i was rather hoping for a longer game, not going through replays like a checklist to get the best whatever.

save stalls?  again, an annoyance that stood in the way of playing the way i hoped to.
long load times are to be expected but it will be that much more annoying to replay sections lost to the save mechanism and replay system.

i really hope the survivor ai has been beefed up as it was a constant pita to have to babysit those damn idiots back across the park with not only a S-ton of npc-seeking zombies but a jeep sporting a couple of maniacs and a machine gun that never ran out of ammo.  it was at that point that i just said F it and resolved to not bother rescuing people too stupid to: not load into the zone with the rest of us while standing not 5 feet away from the door, not bothering to run for their life and just let the zombies beat them to death instead of using the sledgehammer i had just given them and making me run back to save them to no avail as they sat there sobbing in the corner like a couple of babies. 

but by far, the boss fights against other humans was the worst part of the first game.  when you can split a dozen zombies heads with one swing of a katana, having to wear down an unarmored human enemy with an impossible health bar and knack for soaking gunshots and high physical damage really breaks the flow of the game, and it only makes it worse that you have to do this if you want to continue the story.  it also is why i shelved the first one and haven't wanted to go back.

glad i have resorted to renting this.  disappointed that capcom didn't set their aim higher.
