one other aspect to the slim, and this time it's a negative.  for the 2 people who used the 'install other OS' option, know that the slim will not have it.  which kind of sucks, in a way, but eh, if i was going to put linux on the ps3 i have, i would have done it already.  

i do think it could have been cool though.

any comparison shots of this vs the ps2 slim?  i could get that one standing up under the ledge of my tv stand.

can't wait until wednesday.  been looking forward to it and even more so since the high reviews hit.

good bye and good rest John.  you will always be remembered.

iirc, after the ee version hit, the soundtrack and extra music were available to dl straight from their site.  that's how i got them. 

if i didn't already have the regular version, and a stalled game in chapter 2 to fall back on, i would be all over this.

tell em you have a large 'extended family', and i'll help you mail them out.  i live down the hill from you crusis, so if an undead plague ever hit the region, it's a fair chance that we'd see each other (at least over the sea of dead eyes and blood-stained corpses)

if i could get the damn iphone to sync up to kindle, i'd plan on buying it that way.  i would love to put it on the shelf next the other zombie fiction i have though.

7731  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Jobless graduate sues her college for $70,000 on: August 04, 2009, 04:22:36 PM
hell, i know many who fell into this kind of predicament.  a double major in econ and philosophy grad bank teller (much better now, but it wasn't quick or easy).  a pre med student who washed out and now works in a movie theater.  a mechanical and materials science grad who was let go after 5 years and is still looking, 6 months after.  a drafter with ~10 years experience, let go after the firm he worked for scaled back into hibernation mode and only exists as a business entity.  a commercial designer laid off from a big corporation, still looking for anything she's qualified to do.  a pharmacy tech who saw the demand drop off while the pool increased, still looking 18 months later while doing odd jobs.

it's a hard life and lesson to learn, but you need a dose of reality.  an education does not guarantee you a career, and in a recession, nobody is immune.  learn this now or get on the next shuttle to the sun.
7732  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nation Red on: August 02, 2009, 08:55:37 PM
looks good, but i would love to see more variety in the zombies.  there's a screenshot posted where the same two zombies are repeated 4 times.  kind of takes you out of the game a bit when you notice it.  they even have the exact same pose. 

i'll give the demo a try and see how it plays.

really though, it will be interesting to see if they can come up with a story not too similar to the other movies.

maybe they can make the aliens appear to be misunderstood, that where they came from biting you in the face and impregnating you is actually the equivalent of saying  'hey, how are you doing?  how's the wife and kids?'.

play this in your head with the family guy bit.

i think i am at 2-5 or so.  yeah, some of the levels are wicked hard while others i pass on the first attempt.  still no closer to target times though.  those are going to be madness. 

i like the achievement you get for blowing up a lot in a level. 

anybody unlock anything other than the first gamerpic?  i wonder how much stuff you get from this one.
7738  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Alien the Prequel on: August 01, 2009, 05:23:00 PM
if they make it a different take on the whole alien one aspect where a research ship finds the space hulk and then has their own survival/destruction story ala alien with the ending being crashlanding the hulk onto the planet, then it could be good, if a bit trite. 

or they could rehash alien 4 with a research ship working on the alien as a weapon and stupidly let it loose. 

really though, it will be interesting to see if they can come up with a story not too similar to the other movies.
7739  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Win a copy of my zombie novel! on: August 01, 2009, 05:13:42 PM
i'd actually be happier buying it from you directly.  you get the money up front and get a larger share of the gain.  are you still in the city you so carefully destroy, or did you get uprooted to somewhere safer? 
7740  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Win a copy of my zombie novel! on: July 30, 2009, 07:16:02 PM
too cool.  did you get it released into old B & M's?  i'd love to hunt down a copy if it's out locally. 
7741  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Beneath a Steel Sky - Remastered on iPhone on: July 30, 2009, 05:37:25 PM
yup.  and not only that, it's going to be getting art by dave gibbons.  name not familiar?  he's the artist who penned Watchmen, among many others.


out first on apple's platforms, then 'other handhelds'.  perhaps an xbla/psn release is on order too.  this could be pretty damn cool.

I've heard Men of War is crazy challenging/difficult.  True?

I didn't think it was crazy challenging, but it is challenging at times.  the same could be said for soldiers.  you just need to reload a save game and try a new tactic when you get stumped.

i picked this up during the sale and played a bit.  it definitely looks and feels like s:HoWW2 and that's a great thing in my book.  the difficulty can be quite high if you have never tried one though.  it helps to save before any major action in case you end up getting wiped out.  the first mission has a few spots where you can also do insanely well against larger forces if you play your cards right. 

at one point, i had two MG'ers in a well situated house facing out and loaded down with ammo.  they were supported by the other riflemen and smg's arrayed nearby and for covering fire.  while i took the tank up in manual control (god, that is fun btw) and cleared out the campers, they held their own admirably.  i didn't lose a man and when i rolled up with the tank, they had swapped to their backup weapons.  the pile of bodies all around them was huge. 

in comparison, on a previous attempt, i let their armored car do too much damage and the whole team was wiped out.

I wonder if we should wait out one of those super Amazon price drops though...

i hear ya man.  i would have bought it in a heartbeat if i didn't already have all but season 4 on dvd now

maybe i can convince the wife it's a good deal.  i mean it is only ~60 more than the price of season 4 and 4.5

What's his name, the guy from the transporter?  If he can do an American accent he'd be good for the role.

you mean this guy?

jason statham would be great for the part and i wouldn't even mind if he stayed with the accent.  hell, port it london or nyc for the subways and real locations.  who would play the big bad guy though?
7745  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: July 30, 2009, 04:25:51 PM
if you haven't tried it, space invaders infinity gene is pretty damn cool.  play levels created from your music tracks.  somewhat expensive compared to most iphone games these days, but well worth it and still a great deal.

also on sale for now
radial 50  - breakout within a circle. pretty fun
kids vs zombies - free the last time i checked and not a bad game to boot.
spore origins, also for a buck, and if you haven't got it, pretty fun for a while.
star hogs.  bought, dl'ed and haven't played much.  worms-style tank game with a campaign and upgrades, plus mp.
7746  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: We're almost to the Fall Run, what's on you're buy list? on: July 30, 2009, 04:17:57 PM

Modern Warfare 2

rental/maybe on
Saboteur 360
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising - 360
Alpha Protocol

mafia 2

pretty sure the dev has nothing to do with stalker directly, maybe the pub does, at least as a euro distributor.

stalker was by deep silver and gsc gameworld. 

beyond that, it doesn't really have much in common with stalker outside of the character models for the zed heads.  it's a corridor shooter with discrete levels and some semblance of enemy ai. 

oh well.  i was worried they would dilute themselves too much with this and the next stalker game.
7748  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Microsoft Store...leaked info....kicks Apple Store ass? on: July 28, 2009, 04:34:17 AM
if and when they open one around me, i'll definitely want to check it out.  should be one very close by, i am guessing.
7749  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: July 28, 2009, 04:32:28 AM
stoneloops is .99 for a while.  well worth the price, even though i feel a bit burned by getting it a few days earlier at 3 bucks.  zuma on the iphone, and not a hobbled app either.  7 levels, 2 different gameplay modes it controls pretty damn well. 
7750  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA]Shadow Complex on: July 28, 2009, 04:28:12 AM
i was really hoping they would shuffle the games again and get this one out instead of the others.  of the 5, i'm looking forward to this one most.  it's still 3 weeks off though.

sadly, this is one group of films that will benefit from blu ray, enough so that i might re-buy them.  but definitely not the regular edition nonsense. i am not going to be sold the same move three fricken times, despite the extras it comes with.

i did pick up dead space for my collection with a cheap deal last week, so i have that to dive in to.

this was supposed to be out what, fall 07?, then spring 08, then 'when it's done', then didn't it get bumped to fall 09 from spring earlier this year?

delays like this one has seen do not make me very confident in the dev atm.

7756  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: [Steam] Weekend Deal(s) Velvet Assasin, Men of War, X3 Terran Conflict on: July 25, 2009, 05:12:37 PM
terran conflict actually added a bunch of stuff to spruce up the campaign side of the game, iirc.
X: Terran Conflict is a brand new, stand-alone game set in the universe of X. It is the culmination of the X trilogy, with a grand finale that takes us all the way back to Earth's own solar system. Gamers can take on the roles of different characters in the X universe, or of a Terran military pilot, and experience a multitude of stories in the largest X universe ever featured - for X: Terran Conflict will offer more missions than any other X game before. Meanwhile, X: Terran Conflict will pose questions such as: How has Earth changed in all these years? And how will relations between Earth and its counterparts in the X universe develop?

it also has the same galaxy spanning openness as the previous games, so you can get empire building as well.  i played 2 and 3, but not 3:tc, so it's tempting to get this one just for the sp stuff.

you get to pick different starting roles as well, so you aren't just set loose with no direction.  very much a targeted subset of space sims, but it does what it does very well.

i'll have to try slacker for music.  i swear i only hear the same artists and songs in a very small loop.  it's as if i only have 5 cd's worth of music to listen to at a time.  to make it worse, the app doesn't work for me.  can't log in with the damn thing at all.  possibly a firewall/permissions issue but i need to check it outside of work on a clear wi fi connection. 

last week it kept throwing in songs which had no place in the genre, like a 70's soft rock song in a hard rock channel.
