at least you can do the hideouts solo in a private match.  it's the griefer a-holes who cheated their way to level 50 unlocks using casual aiming who always mess up my attempts to play the way i want to that piss me off.  if the achievements weren't public only, i would have had them by now.

damn that is a great deal, but it would be the 3rd time i bought the game and still haven't finished.  i picked up the goty 360 version last year.
7846  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: June 10, 2010, 06:06:05 PM
to trade or not to trade?  i've got most of the achievements i can without much grinding and beat the game.  if mp is really that dead, i may be able to sneak in the 10 minutes achievement, but not sure i want to bother.  it really is a great game, but with my current budget, $40 iis a great trade in value considering i bought it for $50.

he didn't seem to care for it, but at least a few of his issues are real pita's.  i think it's more than the sum of its parts though and that he's nitpicking quite a bit. 

i do like the "green spleen submarine" and other color name changes though.

I'm confused.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Isn't he dead? And if he is magically resurrected, won't they just have to kill him again? Actually, I didn't play the DLC - who did you play in those levels?

If you really want to know

Spoiler for Hiden:
He's a clone.  That's supposed to be part of the storyline in this sequel.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Well at least that sort of fits the source material.

Fits right in!  I can't wait!  thumbsup

DLC was an alternate reality, Teg.  You played as the apprentice in those, too.

a reality which would have made for a helluva sequel.  i don't think episode 4 or 5 would have turned out the way they did.

It looks like you can only share levels with people on your Friends list.  That's a shame - I was looking forward to downloading other people's levels frown

that was the biggest flaw in trials hd too.  after the success of lbp, do devs just not get it?  if you let us build more levels, you have to have a way to share them, and not just among your friends.  

what kills me is they had that feature in the earlier versions of trials on the pc and apparently forgot their history.  

i do understand the decision (it takes $$ to keep servers up for level swaps), but if a game like crayon physics can do it on a shoestring budget, why not these guys?  

no demo and no level sharing leave me apprehensive, especially with so much on my backlog waiting.  

bullwinkle, how does this compare to similar games, control-wise?  how many levels are there?

as long as they don't kill off major characters simply due to contract negotiations and invent new ways of crappy transport (go go tunneling hamster ball!) then it might be good.  i still have the mk ost around here somewhere.

7855  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Which older game should I play? on: June 07, 2010, 05:57:49 PM
It also depends on how much time you have/want to spend on it. Both wet and ghostbusters are finishable in less than a week; GB was great fun that only got better until it hit a few rough spots. Never played Wet. Saboteur was awesome, but if I were you, having just finished red dead, it might be too much open world gaming so soon. Sacred is a diablo fan's dream set in a huge world and has tons of gameplay but starts slower than the others and is a lot longer to finish. I have more hours in it than both gta iv and red dead and still haven't finished it.

I just thought of another that I can't believe I didn't remember earlier - Alex on LOST.  That was an absolutely amazing and shocking scene.

it also cemented my hatred of the merc and i was very much on ben's side from that point on.  kudos to the writers for giving us all a second chance to see that a-hole die. 

i thought her mother was also pretty shocking, especially happening so quickly.

Fury and martial arts work pretty well.

Boss fights are definitely the big 'Huh?!' decision in the game for me. Overall the game was very enjoyable, but, the boss fights really ticked me off more than once. Sad part is if they'd handled them the same as the minor bosses it would have been fine.

In a game that tries to be fairly realistic, having guys in T-shirts or regular suits ignore being shot full auto at point blank is very jarring.

what i refer to as the 'dead rising' effect.  kill a herd of zombie with one hit of a katana or take 1/20th of a boss' health bar.

interested still, but not as much.  rfg was pretty much all i could hope for in a wide open sandbox game.  i was really hoping this would have been a more out and out war between the reds and blues with a whole planet to fight over and something similar to a strategic mode. 
7862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSN]Joe Danger on: June 06, 2010, 09:46:06 PM

big open world with lots of stuff to blow up and action scenes straight out of movies like the transporter series and other great b grade spy flicks.  and it looks damn nice to boot.

just finished up the ending as well.
Spoiler for Hiden:
i thought it was pretty effective and while i knew from earlier spoilage on other sites, it was still a bit of a shock.  i really liked the short jack quest.
7865  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Thinking of switching from Directv to Comcast xFinity on: June 04, 2010, 08:14:23 PM
we swapped back about 2 months ago.  we got the damn bundle as it cut down on the phone bill and got everything unified.  they bring out one box to install it and the guy spends an hour.  no problems with the install, but he charges us 100 bucks for internet install and 100 for the phone.  its the same damn box.  total rip off.  it also pretty much eliminates the savings over the old service.  to top it off, a month after we switched, they do a new bundle deal.  are we eligible?  hell no. 

since then, i've had to reset my cable modem twice via their phone support due to it losing the ip address lease and not auto-renewing.  goddamn, this is done automatically and during the three years with the last company, i never had to do this once. 

i would be looking to switch to something else entirely, but fios is still MIA and no eta and i don't want to be hit with another over-priced install fee. 
7866  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA]Monday Night Combat on: June 04, 2010, 07:59:24 PM

if you do feel like diving back in with gta's world after, i can recommend tLatD.  it was a great expansion and in many ways, i liked it more than niko's storyline. 

never played the second one due to how they mangled the disc vs. dlc content, but i probably will break down and get it eventually. 

of course, with red dead being a similar game in many ways, i may not go with another sandbox game so quickly.

word of advice with red faction.  hit and run attacks are easy to pull off and are very much in your favor early on when the enemy is better armed and entrenched.  do the extra stuff while you go as you get more salvage from it, and some tasks disappear once you free a section until the end of the game.  don't worry over dying as you can make up the loss of morale easily enough. 

and lastly, never underestimate the power of a good sturdy vehicle. 
7869  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Bodycount on: June 04, 2010, 04:35:50 PM
really hoping this is good as i love games with destructible environments.  criterion is an odd choice for a fps, but with what they've done with burnout, you know they can make destruction look great.

7871  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 06/5/10 - Thanks MO! on: June 04, 2010, 04:32:50 PM
finish up red dead sp and as much of the extra stuff as i can.  i finally picked up picross 3d and have to play in lieu of all the iphone games for distractions.

if i burn out on red (first pangs of weariness after 35-ish hours straight), i may restart bioshock 2 or get started with opflash 2 on the 360.  (brutal hard, but it seems to have potential for me).  i still have nier to get to on my backlog though, and that's glaring at me whenever i open the 360's drive.

pete, you can't go wrong with red faction.  that game never ceases to draw me back in for more.  unadulterated destruction has never been better.

i also need to see if split second is worth keeping around.  had it since release week and haven't loaded it up yet.
7872  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's the beginning of June. What's your GOTY? on: June 04, 2010, 04:27:00 PM
it's a tough call between me2 and rdr.  both did what they did amazingly well and both looked and played pretty much perfect.  me2 had a better plot, but rdr has had a better mix of missions to go along with it.  me2 had better set piece battles (barring the end boss) but just barely. 

actual gameplay was better in rdr though, especially in light of everything culled from me1. 

i only dabbled a little with bioshock 2, but all of the nods here mean it will be next on my list. 

heavy rain lost me once it decided to kill off one of the main characters by not responding to controls.   no matter how much i tried, i could never get a different ending and just turned it off.  i can accept losing a character to my mistake, but not due to the game saying 'press left' and then not doing anything once i did. 
7873  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: June 04, 2010, 04:15:00 PM
he's more like the first gen augments, like anna and gunther.  only set 27 years before DE1, so it's entirely possible that they will end up showing us the beginnings of the whold conspiracy and i hope they reference those two somehow.

a few things from the trailer.  one, i liked it quite a bit.  the details they showed of your mech enhancements and overall tech, the first scene imagery, the dystopian future and the clash between civilians and police.  the music was damn nice and the trailer was very well done.  his words about choice allude to them including some form of DE1's freedoms and could give us more than one ending.  i certainly hope so.  i also hope they give us at least the choice of upgrades.  i saw several different paths they could take and it would be disappointing if they just made this a wider corridor shooter with doled up upgrades.

this makes me pretty happy that square is behind this now.  they do know how to put out a trailer.  consider my interest piqued and unless they completely botch the underlying game, i can live without the ideal sequel we all hope for.

of course, we all know that within 20 years, detroit will be nothing more than a ghost town anyways, so it's odd to see so much high tech there.  of course, that means a omni-corp style takeover.

Valve did promise a surprise other than Portal 2, and it better not be Left 4 Dead 3.

The only ones I ever had were for wc1 and 2. The big one was kind of cool; it covered all of 1 plus the expansions and was written almost auto-biographical from the main characters perspective. Author even named him something so he could use a name. That was before blue-hair became Blair.

Friend had wc4 guide, but I don't think he held on to them.

and estelle was the old one, not rose.  she was bea's mother.  

The character.  Not the actress, though.  Estelle Getty was nowhere near old enough to be anyone's mom on that show.

Betty White and Bea Arthur were both older (White is [and was] the oldest).

i figured that's what you meant after i posted it.  always knew that the oldest character was played by the younger actress.  one of the shows' biggest quirks.

So who's going to throw the next one? Big Time Timmy Jim? Johan? Lee? Jimenez? Somebody no one has ever heard of, fifteen years from now?

i could only hope for lee, but considering how badly the M's have played, he could still end up with a loss after 9 hitless innings. 

not sure whether griffey leaving is good or bad.  he won't be there to drag down the average, but he won't be there for team leadership either.   icon_confused

That and they no longer have someone to lead ingame nap time either so they wont be as well rested.   Tongue
