there.  that's worth buying if you want a decent CE.  not sure i'll spring on it over the regular version, but it includes stuff you can't get online.

fable 3, now with less content! 

this sounds like the way bioware "fixed" the inventory system in ME1. 

i like how he thinks that "nobody used more than 60% of the content" as a bad thing.  pete, it gave us a reason to replay it and do something completely different.  you know what games are called when everyone has the same exact experience?  linear, and when describing an rpg, that's usually a bad thing.  looked at how everyone's initial response to ff13 was tainted with how long the open-aired tunnel section lasted.  fable has been about choice and interacting with the world since the first game.  now you decide we have too much choice and take the option away?  might as well go with static upgrades ala zelda then and don't even bother to call it an rpg.  take away the world interaction stuff too as some people never bothered to try it out either. 

his comments don't make me very confident that the design is going in the right direction.  i want to see this, but now it's like anticipating the matrix revolutions after seeing reloaded.  you just expect to be disappointed but hope for better anyway. 

don't strip out everything that makes fable more than just a coloful action rpg with corny voice acting.

ha, yuck it up you louts.  i meant short.  the kotaku review said he plaid it for 8 hours and 25 minutes finishing 96% of the quests.  for a diablo clone, 8.5 hours is pretty short.

Oh noes, here we go again.  icon_wink

Simon Pegg to join Fable III cast

Simon Pegg for those who don't know(just incase) was in Shaun of the dead and Hot fuzz,and also he played Scotty in the new Star Trek flick

I like this idea; it's exciting!

While it sucks having a drive fail on you, I can relate to the relief when you learn that it was the cause of some unidentified boot failures. Had a DVD drive fail partways and cause the same thing.

Hope you get it working enough to retrieve what you need from it.

i have the b&b box set and the movie.  haven't watched either in years though.  some of it is still pretty funny.

say, is that box set all of their episodes or only a best of collection?

the Mike Judge Collection. 

pretty sure it's almost everything they aired, videos and all.  got them in an mtv dvd sale a few years back, but the amazon price is pretty good.

hadn't noticed that.  if that's the plan, then it's a very shortsighted decision.  if the app is good, then make it a standard.  it's already limited to US only, apparently.  maybe we are just beta testing the design

boomhower was a great character, but overall, the storylines were a little pedestrian.  there was too much repetition of the basic it ranks above american dad's early years and the cleveland show.  of course, everything ranks above the cleveland show.  i wouldn't change the channel if it came on, but i don't switch to watch it. 

i have the b&b box set and the movie.  haven't watched either in years though.  some of it is still pretty funny.

7871  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA] Limbo on: July 12, 2010, 08:31:04 PM
this is coming out on the 21st for 1200 points.  start of their summer of arcade deal with this deal:

Limbo - July 21
Hydro Thunder Hurricane - July 28
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair - August 4
Monday Night Combat - August 11
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - August 18

buy 3, get 400 points back.  buy all 5, get 1200 points back. 

i didn't end up getting all of the games in last year's promo, but i did end up with 3 of them after a sale on trials HD.  not sure i have much interest in getting more than limbo, castlevania and Lara croft this time around and $45 is a bit more than i want to spend on downloadable games atm. 

it's also when the new arcade experience is going to hit, apparently

oh well, at least we'll be able to buy the dlc later, for a "nominal fee". 
7875  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: July 08, 2010, 05:19:26 PM
zombies are fine, but by the time this hits, dead rising 2 will be out and that will meet my needs for zombie killing just fine.  makes little sense either. 

odd that we have to pay for anti-griefing measures in free roam though.  i wonder what they have in mind for that.  better not be a variation of the "take his loadout".  it needs to be worked on somehow though.  too often you can work on a specific challenge only to get shot by random a-holes for no reason at all.  we've attempted to get the 10 minutes as a most wanted achievement several times only to attract every bored 14 y/o in the region just working to screw someone else over.  it really makes the game less enjoyable at times.

i feel your pain on this, but without the added help of steam.  bought red faction through d2d and there was a manual update and a gfwl update.  i really hate that i couldn't seem to get a manual gfwl update for the game as the damned internal patching interface sucks d-balls.  no damn progress meter meant i never knew if it was working or stalled out.

yeah, a few of the mods would really help make the early game more enjoyable, but then again, i made it through CoS unmodded and unpatched, so i didn't have near enough trouble adapting.

never mind the damn fort in the second map in clear skies though.  that damn mounted mg and armored russina soldiers took ages to bypass with the early trash loot.

well that's kinda dumb; I was only kinda mildly enjoying this game but the fact the devs didn't test to see (or care) that something like that could happen with the patch pretty much kills my interest  thumbsdown

+ stupidity, especially considering how easy it would have been to add that fix during the update itself.  hell, i've scripted more complex registry fixes myself so it should have been a no brainer for them.  makes me wonder if they will 'forget' about this the next time an update is released.
