if you think the playboy's are hard to see, wait til you start looking for the wanted posters.  and there are 159 of these things.  bleh!

finished up with chapter 9 last night and i see a little of some reviewer's complaints regarding the game's length.

Spoiler for Hiden:
after you are "made", you get this nice little montage of interesting things you and joe are doing, but damn if would have been nicer to do them yourself rather than watch it happen.  oh well, i guess this "interactive movie" also has a montage.

If you win, expect a knock on the door by an FBI profiler and a lengthy interview about your whereabouts over the last 20 years because you just might be a serial killer.

So they have done it before, but I never noticed as I haven't gotten a ps3 game on release day and usually update when it prompts me to.

7607  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Mafia II impressions on: August 26, 2010, 05:49:29 PM
Played up through chapter 6 and I am enjoying it. It isn't the deepest game and in light of RDR and other advancements in the genre, nothing terribly new either. Despite this, the environment is very nice and detailed and I love driving around just to see everything. The different elements are all well done and there isn't a sense of rushing to get it out the door. The game only seems lacking when compared to it's contemporaries. Is that fair?  Of course it is and at the same time, isn't. I put this into the same boat as crackdown 2, another sequel that adds almost nothing new to the original design. Both are solid games but both could have been better in the innovation department.

Giving this one an 8 so far and even though I haven't finished it yet, i see no reason it deserves higher or lower scores.
7608  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 has been hacked/jailbreaked on: August 26, 2010, 05:30:31 PM
Just like the PSP discs. I haven't had that happen on the 60 gig ps3phat though. I'll probably run into it when lbp2 hits as I haven't updated since before they took out Linux support.

7610  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Time Waster: Solipskier on: August 26, 2010, 05:15:47 PM
getting the hang of it but i've been able to hit over 320k in a short order.  getting the modifier up is huge as is getting the green gates.  i wish it was shown with a higher vertical resolution though as i just died to him falling down into a gap faster than i expected.

and a replay got me almost to 700k.  pretty fun game.  nice find bullwinkle

They sent me one too, but stupid gmail mistakenly flagged it as spam and I missed the cutoff date. Does anyone know of an email service that doesn't flag these so I can get all those great offers I am always hearing about and contest notifications? 
7615  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead State: The Zombie Survival RPG on: August 26, 2010, 03:23:50 PM
Sounds interesting and I hope it is similar to fort zombie but in more detailed ways.

i just read the about page and while i am bummed it's not a third person real time rpg, it sounds like they have got the right ideas to make an interesting game. 
7616  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II on: August 26, 2010, 03:21:21 PM
Playing on hard and I haven't died in a gunfight yet. I have died due to crashing into a building at high speed, hitting a light pole at high speed, hitting another car head-on at high speed, and getting shot at point blank range by cops after getting boxed in (after hitting something at high speed).

I have died a bunch during the melee-fighting-only moments though due to leaving myself wide open to a combo.  So far, it's death by my own mistake and I haven't felt cheated yet.  This is on the console and after 6 chapters btw. 

Oh, I also died once after breaking through the guardrails on the bridge.

2001 Acura RSX ~170k.  i always get over 27 mpg on a 13 gal tank.  it's gotten better too.  i used to get 23-25 depending on traffic.  

the highlander fares a bit worse of course, but if we take it easy we get over 20 mpg.

Damn, I need a couple more points.

Same. Strange find though.

Actually, I think this might be a problem:

Just a warning - looks like Reach is out there in the wild. This time it seems we can't blame the French; apparently, a group of modders figured out how to fool into allowing a download of the copies put up for some press. (Ouch!) Videos and screenshots are already online, and it's likely that if you hang around on forums, you WILL see spoilers. (We'll do our best to keep them off the HBO forum, but we can't guarantee anything... and we certainly can't help with other places on the interwebs.) So if you're looking to play Reach unspoiled... now might be a good time to go dark.

Whoops. Talk about making it easy to pirate - they pulled it from Microsoft's own servers!

they are getting targeted and banned by ms though so it shouldn't last long.  i would still avoid the grungier parts of the web to avoid any spoilage.
7620  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Ruler on: August 24, 2010, 08:12:00 PM
any comparison to sins of a solar empire?  obviously, this is more grand in scale but i am curious as i just restarted soase with mods and noticed this was out.  looks interesting to be sure.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Article with a picture.

Over three days and two nights, Wang, a truck-driver, managed to haul his coal-carrying truck over a grand distance of 10 km.

Mr. Wang’s truck, and hundreds of others, have, over the past 10 days, been slowly inching their way along the 110 Expressway, part of a 100 km-long convoy that, according to some reports, may perhaps be the world’s longest-ever traffic jam.

almost 70 miles.  that would stretch further south than i usually go and much further north than i did when i was working.  i can't imagine what the side streets would be like at this point.

Duracell better get working on those Z batteries if they want in on this.

I was wondering how one would transfer energy from one planet to another. Not like you can beam it out. Would really only be useful for a station or one of the moons.

Maybe you should hawk the idea to Ben bova. He's always writing books about stuff like that.

So, by his response, we can see that the video chat is out at launch then?  Or is that buried in the meat of the article? 

If so, it's never good to strip stuff out at the last minute.

The iPad version of N.O.V.A. is 99 cents and the iPhone version is FREE! Showing up for me, just bought it.   icon_biggrin
it shows up as free for me too on the app page but prompts you to fork over the $5 once you start it and after you finish the short two level demo. 

in app purchase "freebies" should put that in their description.

and yes jag, you can buy them if you don't have an ipad yet.  i have a few one day freebies already.

i also found out about the galactic empire mod,  it's not stable with the current version of entrenchment (currently, 1.51) while requiem is.  soage has more factions though and replaces the original three so if it can get released, it will be one to watch.  alliance vs empire vs droids vs galactic council could be pretty cool to see.

I love Sins but i don't see the point to this if you own Empire at War

do larger battles without eaw's rigid fleet cap sound like fun?  does the streamlined soase 4x gameplay without the wonky ground battles sound interesting?  sure, eaw has a lot of great aspects which really stand out when you don't have them (subsection targeting for one and a campaign game for another) but as a stable mod for soase that lets you amass huge fleets to clash with others, you can't beat this mod.

7638  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Wars: Requiem: A Sins Of A Solar Empire Mod!! on: August 20, 2010, 01:59:35 AM
this mod got me to reinstall and buy entrenchment last night.

note that the mod (like most soSE mods these days) requires entrenchment.  this one also works with diplomacy, but not with vanilla.  i also saw this mod listed on kotaku last night and have already played a little bit.  it really has the full conversion going on and while i haven't gotten far enough to get into any big battles yet, it looks and sounds spot on.  it doesn't limit you to just empire and alliance though and you can mix it up with the original 3 races. 

i also downloaded and started a battlestar galactica mod called sins of the 13th colony and it's also pretty cool looking.  it is a total conversion so no other races to fight, but with the way he has modded the game, probably not well balanced that way anyways.  no shields, lots of fighters and cap ship buffs, frak cannons and nukes, tons of missiles, etc. 

now the hard choice, which mod to play.  there is also apparently another SW mod called sins of a galactic empire, but i have not checked it out yet.

If this turns ou to be true, I wonder how it affects the Linux hack-back that was being worked on. I am still running an older FW on it as I haven't been tempted to buy anything on PSN lately. Kind of reluctant to update even though i haven't really wanted to install Linux on it.

I think there was some discussion on it back in the steam sale when it was under 10 bucks and the general consensus was it was a bit flawed and generic. There is a pretty good review on it in the steam forums.
