i did mention the starting date but not the end date.  thanks AA.  the rep has made it a point to have the coupons work this way and how long they last.  really great presence by their team and they were very responsive to reports of stores and lack of sign-age and availability. 

it's like a continual B2G1F sale ever since they started this.

Ha, that's funny. I would have been tempted to leave the soldier a frag grenade.

Had one annoying issue pop up when I went to play last night. I has been up in the souhern hills hunting bighorns (mutant beef, it's what's for dinner) and saved as I was making my way north, overlooking a road and some bandits. When I loaded the save, I heard this growl and was immediately attacked by a glowing ghoul. It was not there when I saved of course and I had to try a few times to survive while keeping my eyebot alive.

Despite what the guide says, nodding the varmint gun is worn the effort. I have a long range NVG scope and a silencer on it now and between those mods, my decent sneak skill, my eye in he sky and the perk which increases critical damage against animals and I can hunt damn near anything and get the positions marked long before the are even visible to the naked eye. It also works great as a sniper rifle against the rovig gangs.

7130  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Kmart DotW 11/14 - AC:B, Hot Pursuit, Wii games on: October 26, 2010, 04:45:04 AM
11/14 - 11/20 deals

figured this was worth posting as it's better than you can get anywhere else.  over at CAG, a rep from kmart has been given free reign to get awesome deals for new games on release week and afterwards.  it's worth noting and i know not everyone here visits there so i've decided to keep track of the deals for the GT crew.

in short, the Gaming Coupon is this:  a code printed on your receipt at the time of purchase that is valid on any gaming item, starting the sunday after you buy the game.  they can be stacked as long as you don't use the copies of the code and don't add up more than the games you are buying them with.  codes are unique per game, not by amount. ie, SWFU2 has a $20 GC, Fable 3 has a $20 GC.  using both codes on a game is ok, using two codes from two copies of SWFU2 on the same purchase is not.  

Using a coupon on a game with another coupon is expressly allowed.  you can train them as long as you want.  the code takes off the amount pre tax.

Some deals grant points.  here is the info on their deal card.  unlike the best buy card, points don't take 30 days to post, which is nice.  

without further ado, here are this week's deals

this week, 10-24 - 10-30.  unless noted, all games are valid for all systems they are released for.

$20 GC
RB3
SWFU2
Fable 3
Sims 3
WWE vs RAW 2011
TH Shred bundle
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011

$15 GC
Bakugan Defenders of the Crown

Misc.
Wii + Wii Fit - $50
DSI/DSIXL + Zhu Zhu Pets - $25
XB360 4GB - $50 in "shop your way reward points"  - Basically like best buy's reward zone.  see above link for details

On sale:
$40
MoH
Enslaved
Castlevania: LoS

I agree with everything except for the 'game-breaking bugs' (haven't seen a single one in a full playthrough), as well as the holding hands mechanic (you 'let go' if there is no way to hold hands without making for some very wonky animations, but they'll still follow as if on a leash until they get close enough again).

You may have noticed I'm currently playing the game (as some of you have messaged me) - doing so for a review for GT. So I can't say much more than what I have already.

figured as much.  how far are you into the game and how long have you played?  i am curious if the lack of traditional rpg aspects hurts the game or not.

A lot of interesting tidbits in the GAF thread. Rumor is that there are no grips for LMGs. There are 50 ranks per level, but 15 prestige levels. No death streaks.

Something we were talking about today - the rumor around second chance (same as last stand) is that the pro version allows any teammate to revive you. If true, that could get annoying.

i'll be bummed if that's true about the LMG's.  once i got that unlocked in mw2, that was pretty much the standard loadout for me.  well, until i got ranked up enough to have that and the scope at the same time.

7140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Vanquish from Shinji Mikami (RE creator) on: October 23, 2010, 04:41:59 PM

Quote from: Bullwinkle on October 23, 2010, 03:32:03 PM

Eurogamer has an excellent article about the 4 hour comment.

It's worth reading, but here's the relavent info:

Quote
While Vanquish maintains its own in-game timers that measure progress as you move from level to level, by stitching together all of the captures into one enormous video, we can time exactly how long it took to complete the game. The result? Eight hours, 47 minutes. However, my completion stats were rather poor. I died many, many times: 54 to be precise, although admittedly many of them were down to one particular boss with an extremely annoying one-touch kill attack. Regardless, the completion stats made it clear that there was still much to learn in mastering this game... which is perhaps the whole point.

But to address the game length issue, let's get a measure of Vanquish's actual game content by cutting out all the cut-scenes, removing all of our deaths and giving it to you straight from start to finish. Is it conceivably possible that you can complete it in under four hours? Here's the entirety of the game presented in just 15 minutes of accelerated gameplay. There's a timer in the top-left to give you an idea of the passage of time as the game was played.

Even in these ultra-optimistic conditions, the timer winds up at five hours, four minutes. Beating that time on your first playthrough of the game by over an hour would require the ability to sail through losing no lives whatsoever, intimately knowing all the strategies required to beat each level right off the bat. In short, unless you're a superhumanly adept player with a phenomenal gift of foresight, the chances of you completing the game in under four hours are extremely remote.

wow, they went full geek on this one.  impressive.  wish they had done this earlier as i might have taken advantage of the deal they had running at kmart.  buy the game and get another one half off plus get $20 credit.  i am sure the good stuff is gone now.
7141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Medal of Honor returns (modern combat in Afghanistan) on: October 23, 2010, 04:03:54 AM
during the end of mission 2, you have up to 4 weapons and switch between them.  during the apache section, you only get to use the guided missiles when the other chopper paints them.  otherwise you switch between the chain gun and the rockets. 

unless i have forgotten a section that is.

By the time I got to them in FO3, I was mopping the floor with them.  Probably just need to level up some more.

I had an alien raygun at the point iI first encountered them in FO3 due to stumbling across the crashed alien ship.  I didn't even realize they were supposed to be hard to kill  icon_lol
i think i was too concerned about fighting them until i knew i was ready and stayed the hell out of their region until much later in my game.  by then i could take out super mutants with ease and had a lot of kick ass weapons.

it doesn't go live until monday, but i wanted to get this out there in case you were ever interested in it.

it's arena flight combat with the usual mp game modes (TDM, CTF) and a pretty decent graphics engine behind it.  was it worth full price?  not sure, but for a buck and a half, i'm willing to take a chance.

no word on how long the sale will last.  it's also getting patched soon with a pretty decent upgrade.  there is also a demo.

I think I'm also going to bite the bullet and grab the game guide. I figure it will be fun reading.

it's pretty well written and great to get a handle on all of the changes they made. I wish I had had the guide before I started out as I would have chosen different skills and traits.  It has a good section on hardcore mode and the usual character builds. It's too bad I couldn't sneak it in to work as I would love to read up during the  slow times.

Amazon last had the hardcover version for under $20 so you might want to start there.
7151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What happens in New Vegas.... The FO:NV impressions thread on: October 21, 2010, 06:01:19 PM
I've had the flailing arm bit and it's disappointing that it wasn't seen and fixed as i've already seen this happen a lot in just a few hours. I also ran into a one I haven't seen mentioned yet. I had on Joe cobbs armor and was KoS to the ncr so the first one to see me actually caugh me unaware and killed me. After I reloaded, I swapped armor and went out to find and talk to him instead. Not far from his outpost, I crouched down in case he was somehow hostile to me. Well, before I even saw the guy, up popped his inventory. I closed it and it popped again. Still no where on site and I hadn't clicked A at all. The second time, I figured on helping myself to the "invisible man's" stuff and he comes running at me from the main base and attacks. Guess my telekinetic pickpocket got his attention.

Also, are you supposed to be awarded perks at every level or just when the new choices become available?  Not sure if they changed that from FO3 or if I hit another bug. The level up screen didn't pop immediately afterwards but not long after I killed a gecko who was attacking.
7152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What happens in New Vegas.... The FO:NV impressions thread on: October 20, 2010, 08:14:50 PM
Good to know. I have been going from the auto saves and periodically saving when before I go explore the wilderness. I'll start manually saving instead.
7153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What happens in New Vegas.... The FO:NV impressions thread on: October 20, 2010, 06:41:19 PM
Got to play for a bit last night and it does feel like a well written but technically imperfect mod. I ran into two problems already, once stuck in a rock and another where I hit level 2 and didn't get the upgrade screen. Had to revert a bit but I was able to level up afterwards. Playing with hardcore on as otherwise it would feel too much like fo3 for me. It hasn't been annoying yet and it already influences how I am playing.

Going with a stealthy ranged/melée survivalist hunter and working to boost my repair skill up as well. I like that the perks are not all 100% positive.  I wish I could take a day off to get immersed in it.

7156  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOTY editions and resale/trade on: October 19, 2010, 08:03:06 PM
 I am kind of ambivalent on this as I bought the first two dlc for fallout before they announced the goty version. I got that on sale and as it included what I bought, I had essentially an unsellable copy of those two unless I was willing to part with the dlc disc.  The flipside is now available if I get the borderlands goty. Now I can sell the codes for the two I have so it's actually beneficial up front.

Where I would make he case for on disc dlc is to allow those wihout access the ability to play the dlc. In this case, as it was wih the RE5 goty, it is completely useless for folks in that situation, like armed forces over seas.

luckily the new MoH doesn't go off the rails like Airborne did with Super Nazis.

you must have missed the secret level with it's super Taliban and their bullet-repulsing turbans as you fought to secure the underground mountain fortress and it's batteries of ground penetrating mole cannons.

That was a huge pain in the ass level, especially when they brought in the mind-washed Russian grizzlies.

small bit of the characters VO

there are already a number of gameplay vids on youtube but i imagine they are either going to be heavy on the spoilers or from hacked systems.  they look pretty good though and the environments outside look like a cross of RDR and FO3. 

the one i watched had a guy at very low level attack an encampment.  pretty bone-headed.

sadly, the stilted 3rd person walking animation is still present though.  the m16 style carbine is going to be a nice hunting rifle from the looks of it.  good damage and accuracy.
