well, once pandemic left the independents and went with the ea mothership, the 2nd string developer couldn't quite cut it and doesn't have the same chops apparently. 

i may put this on the rental list, but not until i get my fill of l4d and codwaw, which will be a long time i think.

Yea, I'm not quite sure why Sandblast was assigned a franchise title like this, but they all knew they were closing their doors during the end of development.  You have to know that this knowledge will seep into the game, ya know?  How well would you work knowing that this title spells the end of your job?

well, personally, i would have left a big fat easter egg in the game mocking my former company for dumping us out on the streets before xmas right after finishing a game.  slywink

  I don't think I've had a new release game come that fast though.

Happened with me on Mirror's Edge- shipped on Wednesday, arrived on Thursday.  Last Remnant was also a day in terms of the shipping chain (sent out on the 1st, received on the 2nd) but on that one Amazon took an extra day to process my order. 

Damn you guys, they really are two day shipping for me.  I an in the Bay Area of CA and even if it's shipped from NV I get it in 2 days frown

if it's any consolation, i live in the same damn metropolitan area as their HQ and still mange to get most shipments after 2-3 days.  only exception was the fast 3 days shipping on a standard 5-7 on the fallout 3 guide.

I was just playing along when an achievement popped up: Soprano.  I wasn't really doing anything, but was on my way to a hit on a motorcycle, which I thought might be related.  I pulled up the dash and saw this description: "Sung along to the radio."  Sure enough, when I got back into the game, my girl was singing along to "Everybody Wants to Rule the World."  Badly.

that's fricking hilarious.  i haven't even looked at the ach lists for sr2.

it could be a bit tricky.  let me check with the guy in shipping for international requirements and a base cost for shipping.  you could also drop the box and novella and just get the disc as the manual is in electronic form anyways, but even with those parts added in, it doesn't weigh all that much.

last night was pretty fun.  we had a group of 5 against a team with 3 people under level 5 and the other three no higher than 30 in hardcore.  you can really tell when someone is new to this game in HC as they make the dumbest mistakes (even dumber than i have made, mind you).  at one point, i had a tango pop out from cover in a doorway, see me, then make a half-step back leaving his arm and leg exposed, then a half step back out where i popped him in the head while prone. 

let's hope the post xmas rush of newbies doesn't kill live this year.

That's kind of the story for all the next gen systems. I fiddled with Panzer Dragoon Oorta and Phantom Dust on Xbox. I played Odama and Smash bros Melee on GC (bought Eternal Darkness but haven't gotten around to it).

odd.  i have both of the xbox games you mentioned and eternal darkness as well but put very little time into either one.  phantom dust is still in the plastic. 

plus phantom crash, psychonauts, crimson skies, indigo prophecy, re4 gc, and few other gc games i can't remember.

master clockwork rifle, so i have no worries there.  i think my biggest problem is i always end up aiming manually after forming the habit throughout the later part of the game. 

please tell me that this is the last of this kind of switch.  otherwise it looks like more of a slog than i want at this point.
7623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: ESA is after me..thats new :) on: December 01, 2008, 08:13:55 PM
+1 to the suggestion to get a 360.  nothing like having a pretty reliable (hello rrod!) machine that plays anything you buy for it with great graphics and no compatibility headaches. 

you do miss out on some games, but that's true for every system you don't own anyways.  i do miss modding though, but i've decided i would rather play a game than spend hours tweaking and messing with settings (and mods) these days.

nothing again, but i have pop in the rental queue for when i eventually send back what i have, as is destroy all humans, despite it being;
a:  not developed by pandemic, the creator of the series and
b:  being so bad that it was canned on the ps3 (i hear it was due to the cell programming difficulties.)

i will miss not having the bobblehead to keep vault boy company though. frown

i can hit the first one with a fully charged magic fireball aoe, then get the first two ranged by standing in front of the pillar between 1 and 2, but that last yellow just manages to reset before i can aim at it.

after jumping at a chance to get a 60 gb last year, i have to agree with gellar.  since i bought it, i have played shadow of the colossus and mgs 3 and that's it.  i am glad i have it though, but i haven't felt the need to play a ps2 game in a while.

finished up fable 2's main quest and most of the extra stuff.  took a very short shot with fallout 3 and L4D.  made it to the last mission in cod5 on hardened and really wish i had just played it on normal.  all of the frustration, none of the fun. 

i also bought rez hd, keflings, and golf: tee it up, plus 3 of the 5 sale games on psn (eden, wolf, and last guy)  so it was a big weekend for downloadable games.

rez is just as nice as i remember it and will be a good distraction.  keflings has a wierd charm and i expect golf to be a good game for parties to contrast wii sports golf. 

not a lot of time overall, but i did get a few hours here and there of uninterrupted play time. 
7631  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Left 4 Dead Impressions on: December 01, 2008, 07:38:09 PM
yeah, i don't see the need to beat anyone over the head with liking it or not.  either you do or you don't.  as long as you try it, i cannot fault your for disliking it.  if you give it an hour and it hasn't grabbed you, then why bother?  it's not like the game changes drastically at 1:01 or even 100:01.  it is what it is and that happens to be a tightly designed mp shooter based heavily on teamwork and covering each other's butts.  or, adversarily, working together to take down prey.  slywink

like i said earlier, i liked what i played even though i see the weak spots.  this hits a nerve for me;  putting myself into a zombie movie with friends.
7632  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fable II Impressions thread on: December 01, 2008, 07:25:58 PM
well, i finished this up the other night, and stupidly ended up taking the 'sacrifice' ending in the hopes that i would be able to undo some of the damage.  nope, it's pretty much final, and now i really wish i had taken the 'love' ending instead.  i would go into more detail, but stupid spoilers are still broken. 

i also bought the castle as it turned out the ach for being rich is based on your ownings, not your cash on hand.  got a new quest from that too, but i am currently stuck due to an annoying switch requiring a magic and four ranged shots to activate and it gives you very little time to react.  i really liked the start of the quest though. 

i have 10 more of those statues to find, and a handful of keys too, but i don't really know if i'm going to push on with it. 

anyone want a ton of money?  i will happily give you a few hundred thousand.  biggrin
7633  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Jasper, is on the market..... on: December 01, 2008, 07:18:39 PM
let's compare my game catalog.

a whole row of xbox games vs 3 ps3 games. 

yup, if i am forced to buy a new one, so be it.  luckily, i bought in late, so i still have a year and a half left.
7634  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fable II Impressions thread on: November 29, 2008, 04:55:14 AM
only 5k per tick?  i'm over 12k per tick and got over half a mil the last time i logged in.  every building in bowerstone minus the castle, and every thing in the pirate town, the starting town, and everything in the city by the arena and everything is priced at 0%.

i still have a handful of quests to finish up, and the main quest too. 

curious, but how much is the castle?  i thought the haunted one was expensive, but at least it gives you a payback at the end.

played 4 of 5 levels in the 'no mercy' campaign last night, and i definitely think this has more potential than the cod5 zombie mode.  mainly, there is a survivable goal here as you do progress through the levels assuming you have a good squad.  that's a major hurdle right now.  out of the 8 or so i played with, 3 were constantly running off and getting the horde to aggro on them without backup.  i was constantly seeing so-and-so has been attacked by the witch/tank/hunter/smoker, etc and need help/reviving, or even a respawn. 

sadly, the group i was with just couldn't pull it together long enough to get past the final round before leaving and the ai is just useless in that level.  wading down into the ranks of the undead instead of standing back and working as a group.   i grabbed the minigun and found nobody covering me; attacked from behind.

this game will live or die based on how big the online community gets, and tbh, i don't think this will be all that enjoyable a year from now after the population has moved on.

also, the ai director is a dick.  that last level i was:

hit by the tank and left hanging on the far SE end of the map off a building while an ai partner stood and watched, never moving to help.  none of the human players could figure out where i was, despite the glowing outline around friendlies. 

later on, i was dragged by the first smoker who got to the top of the building in front of the office and was left hanging until 80% of my health was gone just moments after the horde was triggered.

i had a great time while it was good though, and this is the first game in a while which demands good coordination by everyone to survive.  lettuce, we need to have a night and play this with some good people.  we're missing out in favor of everything else imo.
