7081  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: May 17, 2010, 04:49:17 PM
 metacritic

NYT
Eurogamer - 8
IGN UK - 9.8
IGN - 97
Game Informer
Edge Review - 9  not as swooning as the others, so a good choice if you are gta4 weary.

the old thread has served its purpose.  Time to move on.  I'll update the top with any notable reviews.  

Now, to start, who's going to a midnight release?  I won't be able to dive in until tomorrow, but at least i will be working from home so i should be able to sneak in a bit from time to time.
7082  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 17, 2010, 04:45:21 PM
i say it's time to put a bullet into this thread.  or two, just to be safe.

it's done
7083  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 17, 2010, 02:25:19 PM
Why?  Because an impressions thread with 15 bob-damned pages of idle chat isn't going to help someone looking for game impressions. It's not worth the effort to wade through all this nonsense and it's not like we have to conserve threads. If we did ceekay would be considered a an extinction-level event.
7084  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 17, 2010, 06:58:17 AM
You got bullet time shooting; not sure how that works in mp though. There's a lot more randomness to the world and you have more than one stance to how you advance the plot, afaik. Cover mechanics will probably be like gta4.

yeah, no go for US site.  tried every one of the codes listed.  nada.

might work for a digital download though, especially if you can register it with steam like that dow2 deal a while back.

Sadly, I did not get any game time this weekend. Not unless half a stage on angry birds counts. I intend to make up for it on Tuesday though.

Looks interesting. With this being the eve of red dead's release, it might be a bit harder to get interest in this right now though.

I'll keep it bookmarked for later.

Are you guys all getting this for MP?  Did anyone even play the GTA4 MP?

i'm getting it for the sp mainly, but the mp sounds like a lot of fun.  the gta 4 mp was pretty fun as well.

Yeah, was that without water or booze, MO?

I'd guess this guy has found a way to lower his metabolism so far that he's not breathing anywhere close to normal. Hence the lower water loss.

picked this up during a previous sale.  fun and interesting platformer with a decently challenging mechanic.  you find parts for your ship which both increase your reach and your weight and give you various abilities.  tractor beam, for example. 

a good game for the price if you are looking for something different.

Eah, it wasn't until I stopped using the bait did I finally get the right fish. I'm sure there's a guide out there listing the right beach/lure combos to get which fish.


It's got an achievement for finishing under 15 hours, so it's not a long game by neccessity. Save points are not that far apart and I have only had to play about an hour to reach the next one, max. As for cursing, it's in there, but not gratuitously and really only when one character is on screen. I would skip straight to the title screen though. Subtitles are fully available.
7101  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nier, action/adventure beat-em-up from Square Enix on: May 14, 2010, 02:01:32 PM
I went back after getting kaine to join and after I'd picked up a better weapon.  It was ridiculously easy then.

fishing is a bit of a pita IMO. Spending money on the bait nets me exactly the same as just the lure. When I used the sardines as bait, all I ever caught was junk. I'm chalking it up to early location but I won't be surprised if it happens a lot during the game.
7102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 14, 2010, 01:55:06 PM
Unless you swing a mean club; then every posse in the land wants you to get in.

might be time to pick up evo legends.  lots of other decent space games in there. 
7104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 13, 2010, 08:44:35 PM
Did they ever mention whether you can use bows and arrows?  It would be a great stealth weapon and it would kick ass in mp ambushes.

There's a one hour preview of sorts on kotaku. Pretty basic random stuff but I like the mention of randomness he encountered. Looking forward to getting lost and shooting lots of critters.

So, do I need to be the only indian in the posse?  
7105  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nier, action/adventure beat-em-up from Square Enix on: May 13, 2010, 03:53:01 AM
thanks, i'll try that. 
7106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nier, action/adventure beat-em-up from Square Enix on: May 13, 2010, 03:20:40 AM
anything special about taking down the boar?  i've played up to the point where you get the weaponsmith but haven't upgraded the one better weapon i've found.  i attempted to take the boar down but with no health bar, no way to know how much i'd hurt it before it killed me. 
7107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Picross 3D on: May 13, 2010, 03:18:11 AM
it's on my list to get.  pretty much played the first one straight through without changing out until i had done every puzzle.
7108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 12, 2010, 06:55:35 PM
damn that's a good deal.  makes me very tempted to drop the gamestop pre-order bonuses and jsut get it there instead.  the k-mart a few miles away seems pretty good about the video game deals. 

anyone with an early pre-order at gamestop been able to get the $10 credit granted after you ordered?  i did it back with a few games and have RDR coming for $45.  if i can get the credit, it will be worth the effort.

let's hope so.  people who can think of stuff like this to do to children are not right in the head.  they need time away from society.

7112  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Riddick Returns on: May 12, 2010, 06:24:16 PM
yeah, i don't get why he had to be the last survivor of a super-race.  that makes his survival from pitch black a bit weaker.  it would be like finding out that the guy in glasses who just saved a bunch of kids was superman.  of course he can do it. 

i loved the setting as well, but the whole universe expansion felt like a different movie was made and then they decided to drop riddick into it. 

i'd almost enjoy an adaptation of EfBB made into a movie.  or an expansion of the dark athena storyline.

either way, i'll watch this when it comes out.

yay, make it harder.  why not give you just a knife and a whole room full of baddies to get past too.  and keep the same checkpoint save system. 

brilliant.  this game screams for mod support to address all the quirks they added to the game.  glad i passed on this one from the get go, but sad that it was such a missed opportunity.
7115  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Heavy on: May 12, 2010, 06:14:58 PM
that reminds me, it sucks that the third getaway was canned.  it could have been fun.  i enjoyed the first one and while the second wasn't nearly as good, it was interesting.

I hope the 2 of you have a contingency plan for removal of your collections to deep fault storage in case of an impending, earth-ending catastrophe. Humanity is counting on you for the preservation of the known PC gaming library. smile

I think I'll be eating them, because they're taking up all the space I should be using to store canned goods.  Tongue

hmm, floppy disk stew.  taste that 16 bit goodness, right in the sleeve. 
7117  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: May 12, 2010, 06:03:48 PM
just when you figure that everybody has moved on, they go and introduce a new mode.

4 player co-op onslaught

about a month too late, methinks. 

with that, i ask:  was the vip code a hit or failure in your eyes?  it was how we got several 'new' maps and access to some perks earlier.  if you didn't buy it new, it's a pretty hard sell @ 15 bucks, imo.  this new mode (assuming there will be more than 4 maps for it in the end) makes vip a bit more worthy.

7120  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Borderlands - Reviews, impressions and discussions on: May 12, 2010, 03:52:53 AM
i have a level 54 soldier and still use a level 34 battle rifle.  it happens quite a bit and tbh, most of the time i've gotten a drop near my level, it ends up as vendor trash.  i went all the way through the last quarter of the first playthrough, half of the second and a decent chunk of the armory before finding a similar weapon. 

for reference, it's a 117 3x fire elemental destroyer with moderate ammo/accuracy but i keep it for one simple reason.  the 'destroyer' implies that when scoped in, it empties the clip in less than 2 seconds. 

you will find better smg's.  i barely use them but have a few really nice ones.
