8401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: In this thread we list our (sometimes irrational) dislike of certain game ge on: March 31, 2010, 07:42:27 PM
Jrpg, as turn based combat has lost the thrill as is 80+ games.
Counter strike-likes. If it isn't big I scope like cod or bc, then I won't last long playing.
Fighters. There's no way in hell I'm going to remember how to pull off the right move when the time comes.
 Dmc/gow types. Like the fighting games, there's no way I'll ever play enough to get the muscle memory to get through the insane portions.

In it's own way, it's like a mix of mercs 2 and the saboteur. You have this massive space to explore and objectives all over the map with lots of stuff to destroy along the way. I'll travel from one point to the mission and clear many of the little towns along the way. It helps to break up the 'collect them all' aspect to the villages. It also means that whenever I want to start a mission, I have more than enough chaos points.

I need to find a better jet for the bridges. The harrier and the X37 are too fast for that sort of thing. 
8403  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Confirmed: USB Storage for 360 in Spring Update on: March 27, 2010, 08:09:14 PM
it annoys me to no end that they limit the partition size to 16gb.  i have several unused portable hd and there's no way in hell i'm going to bother setting up 16 separate partitions just to get the full use of a 250 drive. 

this replaces the mem card, and for that it's good, but still a damn stupid limit and totally useless for most people.

yeah, i know it's so they don't lose the sweet insane markup of their retail drives, but i can't be happy for such a nerfed feature.

8405  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamestop being sued over used games on: March 26, 2010, 07:00:59 PM
I can't fault the guy too much for waiting. He probably figured on the dlc being something he'd do on a later playthrough and never bothered to try it. Bad assumption on his part and definitely something that should have been pointed out at time of purchase.  On that at least I agree with. If it's sold with the card in the box, you might think it was unused. Not unreasonable.

He may have waited too long before trying it, but how many of us have done the same thing?  He'll, I bought DAO a week after release and only put in about two hours due to how packed the 4th quarter was.

yeah, if this isn't montreal, i'll wait for reviews and favorable impressions.

of course, it won't help when you guys go out and get it first day and i sit back with 90% of my active friends list playing it. 
8407  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GTA to return to London? on: March 26, 2010, 01:55:30 AM
It would make up for the loss of 'the getaway 3'.

I'd love to see their take on the uk.
8408  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How to manage two XBox360 consoles? on: March 25, 2010, 02:16:23 AM
Yeah, I would wait til then and just move the hard drive.

I did see some official cards not too long ago a Fred meyer if you want to go that route.

they should have got the guys who made dark void to take this.  had a lot of fun flying around in that one.

cool, i might boot up ME2 to see if the hammerhead bit is fun and to go back and pick up the other dlc i never bothered with.

8412  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: March 24, 2010, 03:57:52 AM

that's too damn awesome.  god i wish there was a video camera mode for this game.

still, it makes me wonder where he grew up that that made it into the parlance.  odd fellow, that jztemple.
8414  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: March 24, 2010, 03:13:36 AM
I had my lol moment during the chase scene when I grapled one of the humvees and then grappled the ground just in front of it. The jeep roared after us and hit the end of he towline, spinning end over end and throwing the passengers out. The driver did not resume the chase.

Just got past that and out on my own. Really liked the first mission, but I wish there were fewer cutscenes in lieu of action moments. Otherwise, I'm liking it so far.
8415  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: March 22, 2010, 07:15:51 AM
Sadly, I have to agree on the m60. It's so insanely good that it needs to be balanced a bit. Guess I'll have to pick a new favorite mg. Maybe the m3.  It's a beast for RoF even if it chews through bullets much faster than I like.
8416  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (03/22) on: March 22, 2010, 07:11:56 AM
Can't wait til tuesday and just cause 2. Ought to be a lot of fun.

if you have the 64 bit version of win7 running, make sure you grab the 64 bit tages drivers.  i had a similar problem with bg&e.

i don't see why it wouldn't work as you can buy anything as a gift, but i haven't tried it.  in my state, it would add another 2 bucks or so to the price. 
8420  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Stalker: Call of Pripyat CE FS on: March 21, 2010, 04:15:55 AM
If you have a steam copy of either of the other stalker games, you can get it for $20.

You might be able to get it as a gift that way via steam as well. Best method would be from someone in a non taxed state.
8421  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Medal of Honor: Modern Warfare on: March 21, 2010, 02:54:24 AM
After BC2, if dice is behind the mp, I'm in for sure when this hits.

It will be nice to have an alternative to whatever the team replacing IW poops out after treyarch's came this year.
8422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Infinite Space [DS] on: March 20, 2010, 05:25:42 PM
haven't been able to find a copy in stores yet....

i'm going to give it another few days and check around, then i guess i'll just buy it on amazon or something.

way to go sega with your marketing genius.  we shall remember you after the inevitable name resurrection in 10 years with fond memories and sad remembrances of your self destruction.

i installed it back in the day and the name was perfectly fitting when applied to the install process.  it wasn't even the biggest option either, but the way they stored the files took forever.

it would be worth it to dump the discs, but i know it would end up gathering digital dust in my case.

Exactly as Tokek said:  If your machine is getting wiped during boot-up, then DB won't get a chance to sync.

You can also uninstall it first.
8426  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Will all my games run under Win 7 64? on: March 18, 2010, 02:37:54 PM
If it was x32 win7, I wouldn't worry so much but 64 bit changes things enough that some games dnt work in compatibly mode. Even some more recent ones, such as 'and yet it moves'. It runs but many of the textures don't load. There was another indie game I had that wouldn't run at all.
8427  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Infinite Space [DS] on: March 18, 2010, 02:00:24 PM
How does the combat play out?  Real-time or turn based?  All of the previews I read on it were very light on those details.
8428  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ps3] ryu ga gotoku (yakuza) 3 impressions on: March 17, 2010, 04:11:15 AM
i could pick up a copy, and was close to the other day, except for one glaring issue that is make-or-break for me.  the game says it supports 720p only.  the last time i tried a game that didn't support 1080i, it looked like a ps2 game.  it was ok then as i had it rented, but if i'm set to drop $60 on a game, i'd like it to look a little better.

anyone with the full game on an older hdtv out there?

or is the demo sporting the same level of detail?  it didn't look too bad to me, but i'm still a little reserved right now.
8429  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: March 17, 2010, 01:46:45 AM
yeah, i think gamestop might actually get a pre-order from me.  that stuff not only sounds fun, but as it isn't something handed to you when you load, worth a little work to get. 
8430  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: March 17, 2010, 01:42:07 AM
as much as i wanted to stop and grab this on the way home, i'm somewhat relieved that i decided to wait and pick up just cause 2 next week instead.  i'll grab this down the road when the shelves run dry of new releases. 

and hell, i haven;t finished the last stalker yet anyways, so i have that for my desolation game experience.
8431  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Xbox 360 $39.99 on: March 17, 2010, 01:28:15 AM
figures, but it's not worth the hassle to buy it again, wait and hope it arrives before the return period is up just save 10 bucks or so (after shipping)
8432  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Way of the Samurai 3 - 360 - $20 on: March 17, 2010, 01:26:59 AM
i'll let you know when it arrives.  with any luck, not more than a few days. 
8433  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: [Steam] Sniper Elite $2 on: March 17, 2010, 01:25:11 AM
i picked this up during the holiday sale as well.  haven't had much time with it, but the mechanics sound really interesting for a ww2 game.

8436  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (03/14) on: March 15, 2010, 07:45:14 AM
Waiting on reviews for metro and infinite space. I haven't even played cnc3 so I'm not going to pick up 4 and never played any of the gow games.

Still waiting until next week for just cause 2.
8437  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Do multiple threads clutter the board or help organize? on: March 14, 2010, 12:46:40 AM
I think it's appropriate for a game to have a pre and post release thread as it is annoying to wade through announcement, alpha and beta news, demo impressions and 'who's getting this and why?' questions before getting the actual players' impressions. I also have been annoyed by those who feel it necessary to soft police a new imp thread just because someone created a news thread three years before the game came out with a title that doesn't get updated as the OP isn't playing the game after release.

There's no reason to continue an imp thread on top of double digit preview thread;  the BC2 thread is a prime example of this and shows that it works.

If there isn't an imp thread on release for a game I'm interested in, I will make one,  simple as that.

I don't have you on my friends list Kagath.  

Don't worry about how you match up against hark and kato.  Those two are consistently ranked in the top 10k. globally, so it's no shock they out rank the rest of us.
8440  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Anyone looking to sell any GBA or DS games? on: March 13, 2010, 06:11:38 PM
