Bocce is pretty good (it's hard to get far throws, though).

Everything seems to be fine except for Tiger Woods 11.  I cannot get it to recognize the Move controller at all.  I spent way too much time last night trying to get that to happen.

I haven't seen anything online about it, but I have heard the Move support is pretty shoddy.  I may try to take it back (wish me luck).

Yeah I have had trouble with the Tiger Woods demo on the starter disc; when you are at the tee it just won't recognise the controller.

The kids love the eyepet and the sports game. I (ahem) quite enjoy the gladiator challenge.

We never had a Wii though so it is a new experience.



is that you joey?

that sucks about TW11.  one of the few golf games i would actually buy. 

so, at this stage, can you make a definitive yes/no recommendation?  what's the best move game so far?

if you haven't installed this to your hd (possibly with halo 3's known performance hit from install in your mind) you might want to:

Single player legendary playthrough complete.  It really wasn't that bad after working out which weapons counter the different enemies best.

were you able to get through the end sequence as designed or did you use a work-around?  curious as i haven't yet started a legendary run-through, but it seems to be more doable than others.

Are you talking about 'pillar of autumn' or 'lone wolf'?

pillar of autumn.

according to kotaku, this is slated for spring.  3 player online co-op (3?!) 6 player survival, 150 weapons, 4 upgradeable armor sets. 

and they bring us hope by pointing out that the dev didn't make the flawed and boring matt hazard retail game, but the better xbla side scroller.

castle crashers is awesome as well.
7326  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Irrational teaser site (Bioshock : Infinite) on: September 19, 2010, 04:00:49 AM
i just read through the GI article on this and other than what's already been released, it seems there's another big guardian type who you have to face.  it's a single entity and not mass produced and from what they wrote, has an interesting relationship with the woman you have been sent to rescue.  think stockholm syndrome, but not so sinister.  also similar to the big daddy/little sister relationship.

the plasmid system is different now too.  instead of powers as spells like in 1/2, they are now more like potions and have different strengths and doses.  they named them vigors, nice touch.  they say this allows them to have a bigger range of powers and not tie everything into a mana pool.  we'll see how that turns out as you might run out of one potion at the wrong time.

also, they haven't decided on a mp component and were considering how best to do the respawn vs reload mechanic.  the big man also let the question of whether this is in the bioshock universe up to the player.  lastly, the subtitle was chosen for a reason but he was unspecific beyond "play it and then you'll know".

decent sized article and it has a number of pics and the description of the first demo played through.

GT would only benefit.
That's harsh.

Besides, without Darkstar the population of women at GT would fall down to being just Mytocles and jersoc.
Well it was an idiotic post. Steam sucks because Wal-mart broke street date? Great logic.

I hope you don't play WoW CeeKay, just because someone looks to be a woman, doesn't make it so.

there.  fixed that for you. 

and yes, this isn't steam's fault at all.  if 2k had chosen a different drm/delivery system with an online activation, you would be right back where you started.  you can fault 2k if you want or walmart if you want, but the real culprit is the pirates.  if they weren't so intent on breaking the drm and getting something for nothing, 2k wouldn't have to keep upping their game from the old cd check to an activation model. 

if you still want to blame 2k, blame them for sending the game out without turning on the retail activation servers.  that would be warranted imo.

See how well I can word this:
Balls change color depending on the situation in the game.

I think that's not entirely accurate.  Your balls can change color depending on the game state, but what's going on in the room around you has a much bigger impact on the color of your balls.  Number of participants holding balls also matters.

Holy cow, I'm 12....  I couldn't read this without smiling.

'splosion man

shadow complex - this is worthy of a blind purchase if you ask me and if you like the castlevania games. 

both of the puzzle quest games are great fun if you haven't tried them yet.
7334  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bought PSP, need games! on: September 17, 2010, 10:18:27 PM
got a copy of final fantasy tactics if you want. 

also, lumines is a great puzzle game, as are the exit games and patapon

both of the syphon filter games are awesome and imho, right up there with the metal gear games in overall quality. 

the ff7 sequel is pretty good too.

the god of war game(s) are awesome as well.

both the gta stories games are great fun and a nice way to revisit the setting.
7335  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Earth Defense Force returns! on: September 17, 2010, 10:15:20 PM
it looks good despite the big flying ant having visible polygon lines.  if they can get the numbers of bugs on one screen that they did in the first, i can stand a little bit of blockiness.  decent texture work on the soldier too. 

bit of a gamble with that dev.  they really botched the matt hazard game from a gameplay perspective, but then again, this isn't going to compete with the big games either.

If you go with the gc, lmk as I have both donkey konga 2 and jungle beat and a set of the drums. I also still have a wavebird, a copy of Zelda (sadly without manual though) and a few other games, plus some of the more mature games if you want something to play on it.  I can get you a list if you are interested.

it will be interesting to see how they stack up this year.  halo, cod, moh.  any two of them in a year is cause for a fight between player populations.  i think moh may be the long shot here.
7342  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo: Reach Impressions thread on: September 17, 2010, 12:57:14 AM
should be a standard xbla card.  redeem it through the dashboard menu.

just finished the campaign on heroic and i already dread even trying it on legendary solo.  the last section before the credits was particularly bad;  must have died a dozen times.  i liked the connection to the first halo.  anyone know if there's an alt ending for legendary like the rest?  might be worth playing for but in co-op.  

played a bunch of firefight last night and i could see that being the mode i go back to.  the defense aspect coupled with the variety of enemies (and vehicles) makes it much more like a campaign battle.  got a killer match where i ended up with more than double anyone else's points, it was epic.  had a massive streak going with the sniper rifle.

i'd forgotten about that.  and from the looks of it, there's no way to bypass it.  figured the hackers had broken it already.

AoG gold is a great game.  I played it solidly for weeks and still have the expansion stuff to look forward to after the big game rush is over. Very beautiful game and deep without drowning you in details. Campaign is nicely done too.
7345  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Medal of Honor: Modern Warfare on: September 16, 2010, 06:45:40 PM
Looks like a good set of achievements. I guess the wording is their way of saying the two stack. It's not always obvious and not all difficulty achievements do.
7346  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ico/Shadow Of The Colossus to be re-released on the PS3! on: September 16, 2010, 06:40:21 PM
Sure it does, the 9th core is powered by The Force.  They only need to disable it via firmware update to make the system faster.

It can be argued that sotc wouldn't benefit from 60fps as much as gow did and get a much bigger boost from using the resources for draw distance and higher res textures.
7347  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Mafia II impressions on: September 16, 2010, 06:35:18 PM
Sure, halo reach is slated for 2013.

Btw, did you know that MS is very convinced the end of the world will be in 2012?  True story I just made up.

I'll wait for the inevitable gold edition and rent it. I did pretty much everything I wanted to do in mafia 2.  What I would actually be interested in would be a continuation of the story past the ending with Joe in some kind of what-if scenario like he DLC for the force unleashed.
7348  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo: Reach Impressions thread on: September 16, 2010, 06:26:53 PM
It takes a bit of adjustment to the speed but if you could hack it in unreal tournament, you should be fine.

If you aren't using your backpack in multi, you aren't playing on an even level with the regulars.

Aside from co-op, the best mp mode to get adjusted would be firefight.  Faster paced but you don't have to worry about facing the best players. Or just play the custom modes with friends. In time you shouldn't be facing too many of those crazy good players as the ranking system should match them against comparable players.

Sign me up, this is the kind of stuff they should have shown for Kinect before.

+ 1.  goes to show how backwards the ad people are there.  it would have cut down the wii factor of the e3 showing.

granted my memory of ico is measured in years and not months, i'd say it looks pretty good but not revolutionary.

as for sotc, the viewing distance seems greatly improved but the shot doesn't give you any idea how much they improved the detail. 

i really hope they have a better improvement or tbh, i won't pick this up.  i finished ico back in the day and still have my bc ps3 and sotc in the box if i want to play it.
7355  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future on: September 16, 2010, 01:08:54 AM
so pretty much mots then?  should still be a good game even if it does come off as a derivative.  i loved the first, liked the second and will eventually play this.  there's too much out now that i don't feel the need to get it right away.
7356  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo: Reach Impressions thread on: September 16, 2010, 01:04:59 AM
i'd say it's at least as big as halo 3 and probably more so as it's the last time we get to see bungie at the helm plus it's got the improvements from the last two to improve it.  there were certainly enough of us outside the store at midnight where i was and the online population is very high.

Sweet. I had no idea some D2D games could be installed on Steam and I was kicking myself for not getting Metro 2033 for $25 on the Steam dealie a few weeks ago.

well, i got it from this list on steam and d2d is the only other download service which sells steamworks enabled titles, afaik.

What, are they running out of ideas or something?  They already had DAO for sale.

Small note, metro can be registered and d/l'ed on steam instead if you want to bypass D2D.

nvm.  me=blind
