So they restricted you from wandering outside of your level, hand you enough healing items to survive the early game without risk and dumbed it down for a wider audience all the while taking out many of the little things that gothic has been known for?  sounds like the wrong company got to keep the gothic name.

I'll stick with Risen for now on.

GI gave it a pretty good score and liked it for breaking the 4th wall in some unusual ways.  i'm looking forward to it.  maw was fun and splosion man was great even if a little tough.

Spoiler for Hiden:
it also doesn't help that emile's level put him in the worst spot to see him at his best. That shotgun wasn't much help as he never tries to use it up close.  I really wish they had given him the cloak and had him circling around behind the elites.

I can see them being a failure as there is no lack of precedents for failed accesories in the console market. I think sony may have been scared to release Move after kinect and could have waited until bigger games were available as the lineup is slim with many signs of poor design or implemention. That TW wasn't any better now than at E3 is a big problem as it allows anybody matching Move against the wii can directly compare the two, with Sony clearly coming up short.

ceekay, the game isn't so picky at order or co-op/sp for the achievements with the exception being the solo legendary (huge pita so far).  if you were to look at mine you would see i finished 5 before 2, 3 and 4.  played through half in co-op too and the other by myself and got the achievement for heroic.  as long as the mission screen shows you finishing the level, you'll be fine.  i had the same thing happen to me too when i turned on the grunt birthday skull and it forced me to restart.  the main menu reverted to "start solo campaign" until i finished a mission further on.

I'm not worried about the achievements, it was more the fact that the game decided to forget I played as far as I did like it wasn't saving when it said it was.  I do remember the game acting a bit off before I quit that previous night, like the plasma grenaded going off almost instantly or taking longer than normal, so I'm guessing somehow the game started glitching.
odd.  never had a problem with glitching, but i have read of others that their progress was reset for some odd reason.  it hurts most when doing the legendary solo run.  to have your progress lost can kill your will to finish it.

on another note, i found a credit glitch last night.  nothing that breaks the game as the payout is small, but should/who do you submit these things to?  it isn't like what bungie was wiping progress for (people found and were resetting daily challenges), but it certainly gets you something for nothing.  tbh, i'd be surprised if the way i found isn't already known.
7286  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Move on: September 23, 2010, 04:53:18 PM
that's a bad sign then.  they launched too soon to beat kinect, but instead of "hey, let's get this cool thing now" we get even less than the wii's launch catalog and the same promise we got at e3:  imagine the possibilities. 

it may be ahead of kinect at this point, but nobody cares of a neck-to-neck fight for last place.

well that's just odd behavior then.  the deal was still visible after i bought it but disappeared today.  reading some of the cag thread leads me to believe that they have some very odd criteria for who gets to see this.

they also said that if you already bought the deal last month for $40, call ms support and ask them to price match it.  been some luck getting that done.

this was still available when I checked today. Signed up myself.
Wait, the $30 was still available?
it was there under the spotlight section. Sadly, it's gone today. New items all around.

7296  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Digital Sales Beat Retail Sales on: September 21, 2010, 05:37:40 PM
here's a reason to buy from them.  puzzle quest 2 for less than Steam.

other than that, i don't know what else i would get from them though. 
7297  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Puzzle Quest 2 - $8 or less on: September 21, 2010, 05:35:45 PM
on big fish games it's currently listed for $9.99.  use the code BIGFISH20P and get 20% off.

if you are a game club member, you can get it for less than $6.   if you haven't used the game club trial, you can get the 30 day trial, buy this game and then cancel it before you are charged.

the only caveat is this version (as are any other the Steam version) has no mp.  not a big thing if you aren't interested in it though.  

game is wicked fun and just as addictive as the first one.

i think they got most of the list right.  i would order some of them differently and yes, pacman ce isn't as where i would rank it.  i don't really have any reservations saying this list is a good place to start too. 
7306  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alien Breed coming to XBLA! on: September 20, 2010, 05:37:35 PM

7307  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo: Reach Impressions thread on: September 20, 2010, 05:36:17 PM
the closest thing to the dmr on the covy side is the needle rifle.  i actually like it more for a few reasons.  larger ammo clip and fire rate plus the supercombine is great for elites.  it doesn't have the same damage/shot though, but it can still kill grunts with a headshot.  

even though it comes up in rotation way too often, i absolutely love rocket firefight on courtyard.  nothing quite so bad ass as raining rockets down on a pack of grunts or skirmishers and watching the ground rumble.  i went 50 and 0 on heroic last night and was top of the rank.  

i haven't topped the 12k firefight round though.  

i would really love a longer firefight option in the rotation though and considering how little anyone votes for it, they can remove the defense option entirely.

If there's ever a picture that needs far more details, this is one of them. Please provide them.

I'm pretty sure that's some kind of Erector set type deal.

it's actually a very creative bit of Lego construction on a pretty large scale, not Erector...you can tell that it's all Lego pieces.  i'm with Destructor though...would really like to know more about it...

I see nothing in that picture that equates to a LEGO piece.

Lego Technic

Thanks.  And upon further review of the picture, the plants at the bottom are definitely LEGO plants.

yup, there's a ton of identifiable lego technic parts in that pic.  they use those sets for a lot of robot and prototype devices.  i had a bunch when i was younger and had built a number of walking mechs and such.  nothing as epic as this though.

The lawyers I spoke with say most defense attorneys will advise you to reach a plea agreement rather than risk going to trial on child-pornography charges.

that's supposed to make us feel better?  reach a plea on child porn charges?  wow, that right there is more than enough reason to lock up your wifi.  and having an open wifi wouldn't be a better defense anyways as you have no way to prove it was open at the time the crime occurred.  once they show up with a warrant, they already work on the assumption you are guilty;  your word means diddly.

i have to disagree with the "free wifi for all" mentality.  sure, you can protect your pc to guard against outside hacks (and you should), but a free wifi connection isn't just used for that.  if someone uses your wifi, their activity is now using your net address so anything they download looks like came from you.  if you don't see why that's a problem, i would invite you to search for child pornography and see what happens. 
7318  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: How do I remove a driver in win7 on: September 19, 2010, 04:30:54 PM
the first step is to identify the driver by manufacturer or by name. 

i would recommend Autoruns.  it lists everything that loads up when the pc starts and categorizes them into groups.  you can see the whole list of drivers this way and who makes it.  then you de-select the box next to it and that will disable it from starting up the next time.  then you can remove the file from the pc if you want.

there is a more detailed way of pulling off every file associated with it but it requires a bit more work.

as for the bsod, most of the time, it is a driver issue but the irq message points to failing hardware.  i would disable the onboard device if it's not in use.  you can do so from the device manager control panel under network adapters.

Unfortunately, despite what Kotaku says Vicious Cycle did develop the crappy Matt Hazard game as well (Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard).

Good to hear that there will be 150 weapons, though.  The constant weapon upgrading was one of the better parts about EDF2017.
aw yes, kotaku effect strikes again.  well, looking at their list of games, it at least shows they can handle the licensed games well  Roll Eyes and their history shows some promise.
