yup.  out of 18, i am day one with 4, highly likely to get 5 others

out of 9, only two are not sequels. 

thankfully, nothing this week.

I saw that price yesterday but I cannot get myself to spend more than $30 for it.  Close but no cigar.

pretty much the same except i would probably shelve it until some time next year for this years big games, so i might as well wait and spend the $ elsewhere.

sadly, i have neither a cat nor a dog.  i do have a 3 y/o and a 7 month old though....

The 3 year old would think it was funny, and we can't have the tapee fully cognizant of the amusement factor. The 7-month old would definitely work though. A baby with something like a Fig Newton taped to its head could provide some entertainment.

it would work.  he always seems to have some item of food stuck in his hair.  he'd probably get a kick out of it.

recently, he's had a number of things on his head, many in fact placed by the 3 y/o:

his pants, sometimes with his head stuck in them
a metal mixing bowl
books
any concave shaped toys
backpacks, with or without books, crayons, stuffed animals, etc.
his food bowl
her food bowl
diapers (clean, thank god)

And, Caine, I'm old enough to remember when "regular" tape, ie not duct tape, was called Cellophane Tape. I'm sure that's what Metal is referring to.  But with that avatar of his, mmmm, mebbe not!  Unless, of course, you already knew what he meant, then uh, nvm! icon_lol
 

i don't think it's been called that around here for some time, but FotC brought the term back for me at least.

I think we should hold a contest to see who can top this picture utilizing tape, an object, and their own cat.

okay...who has a dog AND a cat..that would frikkin' great!!!(prolly only a small dog would work,and try and 'wrap' the sellotape around the both of them)

sadly, i have neither a cat nor a dog.  i do have a 3 y/o and a 7 month old though....

i held the order open for a couple of days thinking that amazon would change the price down to match the same deal they had before, but nothing has happened other than them adjusting the full price down.  sorry amazon, but 6 dollar shipping plus tax puts your 3 dollar "sale" into the red. 
7088  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / BIA: HH for 360 - 39.90. 48hr madness. on: October 02, 2008, 11:27:51 PM
get it quick.  good for another 128hrs.  not sure how they figure the 48hr deal, but whatever.  they also have frontline for the 360 for 19.90.

if you want it, get it now as they often run out of the big deal games.

also this time are a bunch of gaming mice and some at real discounts.  one sandio retails for $80 is down to $10.  one review makes it sound pretty good, so i might grab this as a good backup to my wireless ms laser

is this the same as the pc game from years back?  i remember that kobra really bought into the whole thing and tried to get people to buy into it.  the demo for that one was almost as bad.  the biggest problem i had was it didn't seem like a real game, just one of those small time korean developed online games trying to capture any part of the starcraft market.  pretty unpolished and much too twitchy.  i don't think i played more than 2 rounds before i deleted that one.

i would assume that this new version has some built in preventions against hacking.  not that it matters, as it basically only adds a small camera on top of a homebrewed ds.  big yawn. 

this should have had vc capability in it.  that would have been a difference.  did they add a built in net browser or do you still need to fork over $ for the hard to find opera card?

well, the atmosphere in the warriors was pretty well done, imo.  very drab and depressing, and it really made the slums feel like the slums and not just a color scheme applied to a pretty place.  plus, it had some interesting mechanics to H2H fighting.  never really made it far enough to see if guns were involved, but i don't recall anything about them being in game, which makes a gun-centric max payne a bit of an odd choice for dev/game.

boy, that last line is scathing though.  i got a feeling this one really pissed him off rather than just annoyed him.

despite having a well established reputation for releasing less-than-stellar games, EA has canned the promising fps for quality issues.  nuts to us i guess.

linky for the adventurous

Code:
"The game was not on track to meet the high quality standards set by the team and by the EA Games Label. A lower-quality game is not in the best interest of the consumers and would not succeed in this market."

much of the team is gone as well.  too bad, it could have been good.

going back through the game the second time with all your powers, combos, and attributes is wicked fun.  just wish it was possible to go through that way on the harder difficulty and get the credit for it.

Um, wait...how do you start a new game with all of your existing powers?!?!  When I hit New it started me over with nothing to my name.  What the heck did I miss?  Oh, and let me throw in a pre-emptive  icon_redface

load the savegame of your last playthrough.  i was kind of annoyed too as it starts you out at the beginning and i got the impression that it had only saved my progress there.  turns out you can select any level once you load that save.  everything you have unlocked/found/upgraded will be there and you can keep upgrading everything by playing through again.  also, any found holocrons will not respawn, and are already  counted, so anything you find will be the leftovers.  it would be perfect if you could up the difficulty as i hoped, but it is massively enjoyable as it is.

5 hours with far Cry 2.

My only WTF? about the article:

Quote
Save points can be found across the map, but they're thinly spread. Find yourself on the losing end of a gunfight and you could be pushed back to some thirty minutes beforehand. Without a checkpoint system to ease the passage between save points, the game can at times descend into a brutal slog. We've been assured that the final code will address these issues, and it's vital that it does as, in the code we were witness to, the fault was close to game-breaking.

they had damn well put Save Anywhere in the PC version!  I remember someone hacked the first one to put it in and eventually it was done via patch, but after the outcry from that they should have learned their lesson.

damn that's stupid.  having a hackneyed method of saving based on using a telephone/pc/unmovable journal is annoying, and more so in a game promising open ended freedom.  it was ok through most of far cry on normal because of the way the levels were designed.  plus, this isn't a horror game, so the whole threat of reloading is aggravating instead of enhancing the mood.

7110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly kind of sucks on: September 25, 2008, 05:43:01 PM
i've had decent luck with them, and on average, get the game i have on the top of the list half the time.  got SW:FU the week it released, as well as alone in the dark and bourne conspiracy.  of course, i have had yakuza on there for a while, and even showing high availability, not shipped in favor of a game ~5 off the top. 

one thing that helps is to get the games you want before release on your list asap.  it seems they weight that fact against everybody else who wanted it later on.  each time i got the game on release week, i had sent back 1 on thursday/friday.  that's mainly because i don't seem to get the fast shipment thing any more. 

i look at it this way, i have played a bunch of games i would probably not bought, a number of games i would have been regretted buying, and a few that i would have bought and actually been satisfied keeping.  overall, it has been a good experience, even though it has been pretty crappy in the past at times.

finished up last night (good ending) and i have to give it higher marks than i first thought i would.  it's tempting me to keep the copy from gamefly, actually.  throwing helpless storm troopers around really makes you feel like a proper badass.  you aren't god though, and a swarm of enemies can kill you just as much as a jedi master.  learning the combos is a bit much for a pure action game, but it's so worthwhile to get a handle on them as you can do a lot more damage without taking any yourself. 

going back through the game the second time with all your powers, combos, and attributes is wicked fun.  just wish it was possible to go through that way on the harder difficulty and get the credit for it.

Somebody has to be calculating the cost of lawsuits, lost sales due to DRM, and intangible/incalculable consumer confidence erosion and bumping it against the number of sales they think they lose to piracy (not everyone who pirates a game would have bought it anyway, so they don't count). 

sacrilege.  every copy pirated is a sale lost.  if you disagree, you must be a pirate terrorist and hate puppies and small children holding american flags.

it's getting these days that the only safe way to install a game is to fully backup your pc before you do in case the drm ganks it.  what a PitA
