Not for $130.

I did the speed achievement last night using the dragster you get in chapter 8 down the wide east-west bridge. Start on the east side and you should hit the speed by 3/4ths of the way across with enough time to stop.

You might be able to do it with the speedy car you get from a friend later on, but my attempts ended up in wrecks.

I only have the wanted posters to track down and I am all done.

Leaning towards two worlds 2 and risen 2 myself. The team behind arcania is the same who made gothic 3 forsaken lords? and that's generally considered the weakest of the series.

Every jrpg since ff7 in my collection as they mark the death of my interest in the genre.

I haven't finished any rpg's in a while except for the mass effect games and sacred 2 either so it's not just jrpgs.  
7606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II on: August 31, 2010, 12:16:26 AM
Finished the game with a nice glitch.  I picked up a Thompson with a glitched ammo counter that started at 1000 in the clip. It never needed to be reloaded and didn't revert to normal when I did. It also stuck with me through chapter 14 and 15. Made the last battle a lot easier. I finished the game with several hundred rounds spent.

Yeah, that ending is a bit harsh, isn't it?  Not what i expected at all.

With that and some of the other moments in the game, it really left you feeling like an a-hole at the end, didn't it?  "Cleaning up after Joe", for instance.

About chapter 14
Spoiler for Hiden:
As for that car you start out with, I pegged it as soon as I saw it. It was a very odd feeling to know what was coming.

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. 

I had a character that just started playthrough 2 and I tried to go through Zombie Island.  It was impossible.  I would say if you wanted to play Zombie Island on playthrough 2, you need to get half-way through playthrough 2 before you're going to survive.

that sounds about right.  i was half way through p2 when i got zombie island.  it may have been less than 50 now that i think of it, but the mobs were no match.  barely dented the shield, even the last boss.  however, the armory on playthrough 2 is difficult even if you are level 50.  mobs start at 51/52 there and they are tough.  lots of resistances and all of them armored.

i haven't had any use for the added features either and now that netflix will be on ps3 sans-disk, no possible reason to need it for anything other than mp.  the price increase is a bit annoying but i'll stock up on cards before that happens.  fwiw, you can only stack up to 3 years to your account but the card will remain valid for a while.  i had 3 1 month cards i bought way back in '07 when i got the system and used them without problem this year, so you should be covered for a while at least.

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.

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.

7624  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.
