what, no fake lists to post?  Tongue

Microsoft have announced that they have big things planned,which IMO after E3 they need,hopefully they wont all be Kinect games -their press conference is 17th August as well(Peter Moley will be doing it again)-12.30pm CET

actually I think they need to knock it out of the park with Kinect after E3.

definitely.  their e3 conference was only marginally better than the konami 99 nights 2 guy thanks to the slim model unveiling.  they need to show everyone not interested in party games why they should bother to be interested in a slightly-cheaper-than-wii peripheral.

this has to be the weirdest thing i have ever seen.  now that it's a known issue, i expect it will be patched out quickly, but i also expect to hear of other cross-game exploits now that people know it can happen.  old demos might become very popular on the marketplace. 
7124  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II demo for 360 out now on: August 11, 2010, 05:06:29 PM
at least from the first mafia, your friends would fire back when you drove, but i don't remember being able to do that myself.  it would be nice if you could at least use the pistol to fire back.  

things i noticed in the demo.  the car handling is pretty much as i remember it, which is a good thing as i see it.  made getting those faster cars more enjoyable later on.  i also like that you can store cars.  not sure if it's like saints row where the car respawns after it's lost, but i kind of doubt it as it goes against the realism they have going here.  i also like that aspect of it, like the little bits of environmental interactions you can have while in your house.  the playboy popup was quite a surprise and between that and the regular cursing, make this game fit the M rating.  

the graphics were a bit grainy, but i hope that's due to the early build in the demo as it was a bit distracting at first.  of course, the first thing i noticed afterwards was that the mission was set in the 50's, not the 40's as has been shown before.  maybe that's what the first notice referred to.  i would have liked to see the 40's actually, with the snow and all.  the difficulty level was perfect and the combat is nicely balanced.  pistols are great for long range, shotguns dominate the face to face range, and the tommy just kicks ass all around.  pretty much like i remember except for the biggest thing;  they have dropped the ammo per clip aspect of reloading.  now, it's pretty much like every other game and you don't lose the ammo left in the clip.  imo, it's a shame as it was one of the ways the first game was different and it made the decision to reload more important.  they also went with regenerating health, which i am not fond of here either.  i hope they haven't dropped other details from the first like fuel usage and refilling stations and having your gas tank shot causing a leak.  

one thing i am hoping for the game is that they send you on a mission to take out an old ex mobster in his front lawn.  would be a nice nod to the first one.  of course, more references would not be a bad thing at all.

the first of the paid DLC's are now available, called legends and killers.

for $10, you get all this:
eight "new" characters from Red Dead Revolver
nine new mp maps
tomahawk throwing weapon

i would hazard a guess and say that this isn't going to be all that popular around these parts.  even if you look at this as a map pack (which makes it single-handedly more of a value than the MW2 map packs) i don't think the buy-in is going to be very large. 

which prompts the next question, who here is still playing this one at all?

Well I'm plowing through MGS 2 (just made it to Core 2) and man is it EVER not as good as MGS1! I mean the first game had great dialogue and one liners and a wonderful soundtrack which totally added emotion to different scenes whereas half of the dialogue in MGS2 is Jack's girlfriend nagging him and the conversations that are somewhat decent have no music to help raise the tension.  What in the hell were they thinking when they made this game?  It better get a lot better soon.  It's not a total disappointment but boy so far it sure hasn't lived up to the first game.

Just wait.

It hasn't even begun to suck yet.  

This is outrageous!

Spoiler for Hiden:
It doesnt't truly start to suck until you are running around naked as Raiden while holding your junk.

yeah, that whole end game was just screwy.  i actually liked the fights in 2 better then 4 (with the exception of the big "different" fight of 4 in the snowy level.  the villains were more interesting than the mech sisters imo.

I was excited about Kinect when it was Natal.  The E3 showing of 2009 had a lot of promise, but a lot of that was gone by E3 2010.  It's not just one video.  It's a lot of them and impressions and articles and demonstrations.  Nothing has shown that Kinect is what it was supposed to be or that it's even something ready to compete with Wii or Move (Move has had the exact opposite reaction from me 2009:meh  2010:Hey!).

So was I (and I was actually at the Microsoft Conference last year as well). Natal looked freakin' awesome and it had a ton of possibilities. Now...I see it as shovelware Wii crap central.

yup.  they had a year to get good looking and great games working with it and instead they give us year one wii games.  they should have just shut the hell up last year and announced it now.  if this were the lightgun revival, we would have seen the prototype being used in a CoD MW2, then fast forward and we get duck hunt and carnival games.  they wasted the potential of a whole year.  it's their version of "$599!"

more SC2 on the pc, brotherhood in arms HH on the 360 and maybe TR underworld as well.

i've also decided to quit on crackdown 2 after one too many failed attempts to do the damned wingsuit races.  i can sail around the islands just fine, but the flaky controls do not suit a racing mode imo.  also, the roof races go from fun to abusing when you get to the third island. 

other than a bit of brothers in arms on friday, i didn't play anything more complex than bookworm on the iphone thanks to the teeth.  i've had enough rest since then, but i still feel a little hung over.  soft food diets blow btw.

despite how poorly this looked due to the guy and his unfamiliarity with the controls, i don't think this is the type of game that sells the product.  it looks about as complex as a genesis game with mario kart attacks tacked on and not something i would be interested in even free. 

the initial problem with pressing start is valid though.  if it's not intuitive enough to pick up for someone used to games and motion controls, then how easy is it going to be for the average user who picks one up on a whim?
7144  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Irrational teaser site on: August 09, 2010, 03:08:40 AM
trying to think of a game series where the eighth game would be next.  hell, other than the final fantasy series or the ultima series, i can't think of any others that had that many sequels at all, certainly nothing that irrational would fit. 

maybe more like the vertical infinity symbol, as people have theorized.  not sure what that means either.  oh well, they'll lead us by the crumbs until the decide to tell us outright or we just give up. 
7145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kinect: Are you In or Out? on: August 08, 2010, 07:18:29 PM
nope.  150 for a bunch of family styled sports games and the potential for cooler integration later?  i'll wait until that potential is reality and they've dropped the price 50 bucks.

Well, my playlist just got nerfed. I am posting this from the dentist's office in advance of a dual wisdom tooth extraction after 6 sleepless hours last night. I expect to be pretty well out of any game playing mindset for the next few days.

At the risk of lulling you into a false sense of serenity, my quad-wisdom tooth extraction was a simple and completely painless experience.  I was kind of groggy for a couple hours afterwards -- I recall coming home and finding The 'Burbs way funnier than I remembered -- but I passed the rest of the weekend reading and playing turn-based strategy games.

Anyway, having just finished Just Cause 2, I'll probably play some more Uncharted 2 and maybe start Resonance of Fate this weekend.

-Autistic Angel

it wasn't half as bad as they made it out to be going in, that's for sure. The biggest setback was due to losing sleep. I am pretty well wiped out and will be getting the senior sleep schedule (before sunset) tonight. The pain was very manageable during the procedure and it's dulled to a minor headache thanks to the vicodin.  

I might try for some gaming, but no twitchy stuff. Goodnight SC2, hello civ 4.
