You may have read this morning that Dead Rising 2: Case Zero has been delayed in Japan, and I can confirm that this is true. However, Case Zero will be releasing tomorrow as planned here in the West.

Once again, the Japanese delay does not affect the release date for North American and European territories.


sounds cool.  now, how many points do i have again?  340.

Quote from: Razgon on August 30, 2010, 04:34:06 PM

I know you are looking at it from a developer/disitrbutor point of view ,but look at it this way.

Take the greatest game you ever played...wouldnt you love it if it could continue for years, new content keeping coming out? Thats what MMO's does,and thats what I would love to have as a singleplayer game as well-

tbh, i often lose interest even in my favorite games after a while.  my shelf is littered with examples of "A" games that i burnt out on, even before the dlc hits.  the business model you describe wouldn't be anything i would subscribe to for anything more than the first month or two.  hell, i think my all-time highest hours played would still go to ff7 and that's how long ago?  i don't get addicted to them as much as i used to, but i still have the addiction for something new.  

if a game like oblivion, fallout 3 or red dead redemption can't keep me going back with new stuff, how can anything else?  at most, if those games expanded with whole new regions, i might go back to see, but without the new feeling (and accompanying forced restart) the drive to explore it isn't as big for me.  i would rather have fallout vegas be separate than have it as one more big dlc for fo3 and will get much further with it this way.  
7603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Borderlands - Reviews, impressions and discussions on: August 30, 2010, 05:19:06 PM
to a point.  it doesn't scale to you if you are level 50, like i was when i finally got it.  it's designed as the first dlc after beating the game so it should be right up your alley.  not sure if moxxi scales or what the ranges are but other than adding a storage chest, is considered the weakest of the 3.  knox is the biggest and best of the dlc and iirc, scales to you with one exception, a major boss named crawmerax, who is set at 62?  anyways, you can't go wrong with the zombie one and knox if you want to keep going. 

you could also start on playthrough 2 which starts the enemies out at a higher level to match your current one and see how much of a challenge it would be.

if you decide to get zombie island, don't wait too long.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I used a car as well, but I had a convertable, which didn't help my defense at all. But after a few failed attempts where I died do to not getting out of it fast enough, I would the. Get picked off by his friends who would come down the stairs for me or burned by the Molotovs. Instead I just hid behind the car and took them out as they came down the stairs then tossed grenades up up to kill Derek. The last guy was easy to pick off.

I tried the stairs once but was cut down before I could even get all the way up so figured it would be pointless to try that way again.

That was a tough moment.

7609  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II on: August 30, 2010, 07:51:15 AM
I have started to die a lot more in firefights due to overwhelming numbers and bum-rushing enemies. I hate chapter 14 right now, enough to turn off he game in anger.  First a fight against a bunch of Tommy gun wielding thugs, then his boss who has both the height advantage and molotov cocktail throwing buddies and no way to flank him, all without a save in between nor backup. Then, you get the worst sequence of events in the game. Then, when you finish playing fed ex boy, you get one massive battle after another with a friend who keeps trying to kill enemies across the room with a shotgun.  Not the strongest chapter IMHO even after the cool start they had.

Almost done with it.

Finishing up darkstar one to clear the spot in my gamefly queue and continuing the story in mafia 2.

If I hit up the pc for gaming, I plan on splitting time between SC2 and DoW2.

I beat darkstar one (the game, ceekay. Keep your mind clean. :p). Wow, what a drag the last achievement would be to go after; not sure I'll bother with it. Got really close to beating mafia 2 and had chapter 14 not been designed like a triathalon, I would have beat it already. Got a little further in DoW2's campaign and played a few rounds of last stand with autisticAngel. Good times and I might like it more than SC2 at this point.  Did not play that at all.

I just can't even comprehend the stupidity behind the decision to remove the tried and true equipment upgrade mechanic and replacing it with this absurd equipment "permission" system. That removes one of the most rewarding aspects of the series! My skepticism is not being abated by these reviews.

the bit in the review about the missiles and varia suit really turn the idea into absurdity though. 

"hey boss, if you would let me press this one button, we could jump ahead of our enemies and maybe end this conflict early."

"no, samus, i think we should hold back for now.  once you are safe and sound past this obstacle, then i will let you use it, thus saving you time for the next obstacle."

it's even shorter in co-op.  even on legendary it only took two nights and that was more due to the others being east-coast and crashing early (this being 3am or so).

at least it should have some replay value with the skulls again, although i never did.  played it twice through though.

let's all think of how bad this can be.  so, there will of course be a music number (by this guy or his contemporaries) in there at some point, even if it's completely out of place, it's what the kids want.  which third rate washed out actor gets to play doc?  who will be marty's new best friend who is either completely idiotic, invents crap that doesn't work (just like his uncle doc) or is in some way handicapped (so that marty can go back and somehow fix him).  he may also be black too as they'll feel the need to diversify the cast for no apparent reason.  marty mcfly is no longer his name, he is now something less dorky, in an attempt to make the main character cool.  he may even be a jock this time around, but a cool jock, of course.

the film will go back to those wacky days in the 80's, because you know almost everything wacky happened then and the director (a former music video director) will think it's a cutely ironic nod to the original that fans of the first trilogy will appreciate (they won't).  it will also feature a mix of crappy re-mixed hits by the main "actor" and his friends.  it will be available on itunes and sell a ton of copies to tweens who now think the 80's are cool.  nobody alive during this time period will be able to stand the music though.

lastly, biff is now a super masculine woman (another nod to the new culture) who breaks down and shows her soft side rather than be a total douche the whole movie (again, new culture).  she won't be turned from bully-hood by a fight but rather some kind act of the main guy.  this will allow "marty" to get back in time to save doc, get the girl and win the big game.
