Great game. I go back to this on occasion just to finish up another level now and again.
7282  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/19) on: April 20, 2010, 02:14:20 AM
Myto, you should play it now. I just got back into it with the armory and I'll be getting the zombie one tonight.

I'll join up with you for the zombie island.
7283  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Let's talk Iphone on: April 19, 2010, 11:35:53 PM
yeah, i remember the post they did to try getting their hands on the ipad.  perhaps apple thought it would be a good option after all and decided to make some good coin as well as get free 'exclusive, FIRST!!!' coverage on giz.

meanwhile, i really hope this ties in with a 4g model, but that's got to be next year's lure i guess.  still, happy to have this new version to upgrade as the 3g is a shade underpowered with newer apps/games. 

i really really really want this to have better cell reception.  i've dropped more calls with the iphone on 3g at 4 and 5 bars than i ever did with the old phone at 2 or 3 bars.  it's just pathetic and why i've since set the phone to use edge only.  yay at&t.  i'd gladly move to another carrier if it was cost-effective.

I fell back into the addiction of Borderlands now that I've picked up the armory dlc and plan do so with the zombie island once it goes on sale later this week.

I do need to get back to sc:c and finish it up before long.

Ah got it. I should load up ct2 and see if it's decent.
7286  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Autobahn Polizei on: April 16, 2010, 09:25:41 PM
Is this the same thing as crash time 2?  I ended up with a copy after the end of year steam sales, but haven't tried it out.

How in the hell?  25 gb is way too much. This was on a single DVD for the 360.

I officially have the 18th off for this.  Last time I took a day off for a game (ME2) a relative turned up dead.

second times a coincidence, right?

Is that a lament or a request for services?

he can't say anything on a public board. Best use code speak

"the king of Burger desires a scary clown to stain the colonel's floor on Marc Antony's birthday"

that is all.


I really want to be sick on the 18th, but they'd just call me anyways.

I must be the only one here who thinks that lettuce got screwed into buying milk with a greatly shortened shelf life.
7292  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Faction : Guerilla on: April 15, 2010, 02:55:37 AM
Almost. I have a decent system from '06 that runs most everything now a decent quality (stalker:cop ran pretty well, as did arma 2 and opflash 2) but needed to drop the quality down to get playable frame rates. It lags down during heavy physics processing. And shadows are off as they look horribly broken.
7293  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I'm looking for a game. Help! on: April 15, 2010, 02:46:27 AM
It's a shame that both iron lore and ascaron imploded after their games. I enjoyed all of their games.

Avoid space siege but consider dungeon siege 2. It was a great clone IMO and full co-op.

I would also recommend sacred 2 on the pc. Epic game and lots of viable character builds.   
7294  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: April 15, 2010, 02:33:06 AM
I hope they get a demo for SS soon so I can decide on it or blur.  Wonder which one the forum is headed to? 
7295  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Splinter Cell: Conviction on: April 15, 2010, 02:19:55 AM
Agreed.  Chaos theory is the best of the bunch. Fun gadgets and stealth, multiple approaches without being overwhelming and great dialogue from the guards. I'd go back and play it, but the pc version and it's horrible drm (hmm, that's ironic) don't play well on 64 bit windows 7 I hear.

Just got this in the mail today. As luck has it, I got drafted into a remote support session tonight. Blech!

I heard the can't move bodies thing was a time issue- they wanted to do it but didn't have the opportunity. 
I'm not sure whether that is more funny or sad that in a game that took this long to develop they still couldn't find time to add it in.

It will be ironic if ubi Montreal's efforts here end up making us look fondly on DA as the last 'true' sc.

now that's a buzz kill right there.  post that in with your porn stash to keep teenage boys from twisting one off.  plus, you'll know when they get to that picture. 

send it around to your friends who like fake breasts better than real ones.

7299  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: April 12, 2010, 02:00:47 PM
There isn't even an achievement for 100% either. It's 75%. Much more doable, especially considering how much is pointed out on the map. The difficulty and 104 cars are a bit of a pita, but not impossible though. The creative kills are fun and a good reminder that if you just go toe to toe, you are missing out.
7300  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/12) on: April 12, 2010, 07:20:25 AM
Not sure yet, but I have sc: c in my gamefly queue. The ign review knocked it out of a potential buy
7301  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: April 11, 2010, 05:17:54 PM
no doubt i've missed a few of the transformers, probably just recently.  while it's annoying to have that last chunk left, i wouldn't worry too much.  there are what, 300+ locations and you only need to get 100 for the achievement, unless you count the big 100%.  i've granted that i will probably never get that one due to the skydiving challenges any way, so i'm not killing time looking. 

if you want to boost that # to 100 locations, look for the seaside villages.  i've found several which have only 1 or 2 items to pick up. 

in general, i'll paraglide over the village and wait for the light to go off.  works pretty well and you don't have to keep running around buildings to do it.
7302  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 4/09/10 on: April 11, 2010, 05:10:21 PM
ended up playing more borderlands than anything else.  god that game is fun.  i'll keep the rental until the zombie island dlc goes on sale later this month and decide whether to pick up the armory.  ms was kind to give me a 400 point code in the email, so i'm thinking about breaking my rule regarding games with multiple dlcs and just getting them instead of a gold version. 

played all of 5 minutes with bc2 and ended up playing blur instead.  a lot more fun than i usually get from racers and makes me curious about picking it up down the road. 

a little more jc2 to fill out the need for destruction.

not sure what i'll play today/tonight yet.
7303  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Splinter Cell: Conviction on: April 11, 2010, 05:04:42 PM
that bit about swapping out sam for 'generic action d00d' is what sealed it for me.  the 5 hour mark nailed the box shut.  i always enjoyed the methodical 'high-tech thief' aspect to splinter cell and after the action levels of DA, i realized how much a break from the previous games it was and did not enjoy it.  stalking around while waiting for the perfect moment to strike was what i loved about the third one.  chaos theory was the game which turned me from being a mgs stealther to a splinter cell stealther.  it's a bit disappointing that ubi montreal is behind this one as that makes it even less likely to return to its roots. 

taking the stealth aspects out of sc is like making a gta game into a canyon linear shooter without drivable vehicles.  could be fun, but it's not gta.

far cry 2 is the only game i know to take the original formula and tweak it that worked.  and even then, it was still a fps.  i don't see it as a sequel in any sense though, just a fun shooter with a cashed-in name.

7306  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo Wars manual..is there one? And where can i get it? on: April 11, 2010, 03:49:22 AM
Not sure where you'll be able to find a manual in paper form unless you buy it new. I'd recommend going to another gamestop and buying another copy. Return your used copy before the seventh day and you'll be all set.

That said, it didn't seem like an overly complex rts and there was a tutorial section in the demo.
7307  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Saboteur on: April 11, 2010, 03:44:39 AM
It's strengths outweigh it's faults IMO, and it really makes me annoyed with EA that we won't get to see where pandemic was headed. It's a great evolution and a much better game than how it was reviewed. They deserved better treatment than they were given.
7308  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Splinter Cell: Conviction on: April 10, 2010, 05:25:59 PM
It's in my gf queue, but I'm not shedding any tears if they don't send it my way. Mp sounds fun but it seems they left out the sp in favor of mp this time.

Deadwood.   I've got my copies all lined up for it as prep for RDR. 
7310  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 4/09/10 on: April 09, 2010, 02:20:31 PM
Also single dad this weekend, so I would like to get time with bc2 mp. Taking a small break from just cause to play borderlands and wither darksiders or deadly premonition.

I want to drop my backlog down a few notches, but it's been a bad season to do that. Too many games, too many sales.

I'll get in if I get a chance. I want to play it as much as possible this weekend. I'm on the west coast so it's usually later in the evening when I get on.

'underwater' gear would of course float just like the regular gears; like a rock.

Interested to see what they do with the story and how they'll open up the levels.
7313  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 07, 2010, 08:46:53 PM
They need to tweak the team balancing;  last night there were three of us with four unknowns against four. After a solid beat-down the rest of our team left while they ended up at nine. We held on but there is only so much you can do in that situation. When I left on the next round, it was 9 against 2 before I bailed.

Ug.

in case you don't get it, just wait and you will.

7316  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: April 06, 2010, 09:07:02 PM
I'm still up for BC2 so if you see me on, I'll jump ship on just cause and get some mp going.

Any word on the dr pepper codes? 

I still have a number of the achievements left, so maybe I should just wade out into the general population while it's still alive.
7317  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ps3] ryu ga gotoku (yakuza) 3 impressions on: April 06, 2010, 09:00:51 PM
Thanks scraper. I took a chance on it and got it here used as the demo looked fine. It's running pretty well so I wonder if Sony added some form of upscaling to 1080i along the way or if sega just didn't bother to put it on the box. Whenever I see it's missing, it brings back how bad fear 2 looked when I played it last year.

I haven't played much beyond the gravesite portion but it looks interesting so far.
7318  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: April 05, 2010, 07:05:03 AM
I might have taken advantage of that GS thing on red had I known about itinerary advance but at least I'll get it for $50 from them. 
7319  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/05) on: April 05, 2010, 07:02:19 AM
Nothing from this week, but I do have darksiders and deadly premonition coming from gamestop thanks to their 25% off 100$ deal, plus a pre-order for red dead for slightly more than red + deadly @ retail.

That pretty much marks the end for buying anything for quite a while.
7320  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Quake 2 in HTML5 on: April 04, 2010, 05:22:01 PM
It's not quite what it seems; there's a lot of java stuff going on in the background.  It's pretty impressive for a team effort though.
