so how long will you keep it after you've beaten it ATB?  should we expect this to pop up in the trade forum this weekend? 

this looks like the perfect rental game.  sadly, that means it will probably tank. 
8682  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mercs 2 delayed until Q2 08?! on: September 05, 2007, 05:18:57 PM
if this is true, then nuts to us.  after gtaIV getting the dnf treatment, this was my "sandbox blow S up game".  i guess now we'll have Q4 madness repeated in Q1'08.  i really hope this isn't true as there isn't a 3rd game in my favorite genre.

next up will be a announcement that assassin's creed is delayed.  with splinter cell 5 occupying the spot in my "sneaky bastard" genre, there wouldn't be a game left this year.

if it does happen though, i'd probably pick up a B list game instead.

oh yeah, the news is easily found, but here's a starting point.

remember that buyer i mentioned?  he's re-interested. i've prompted him to stop lurking so he can contact you directly. 

you can thank me in part, because after i showed him bioshock last night, and he didn't run away from an fps on a console (the horrors!) he actually got to enjoying it quite a bit.  almost enough to buy it on pc, but at this price, his spot on the fence is getting precarious.

Yeah the episode with Brett's girlfriend who was about to ship out to Iraq was great.

Shh, she is a sniper.  Special Forces! ninja2

That was the first episode I've seen and I LOVED it.  The songs were great.  So surreal.

It's my secret shame that, behind my cynical exterior, I am just as big an optimist as the band's manager.

damn that sucks man.  i surf all the damn time at work.  it's one of the few luxuries i get in this job.  of course, it helps that i'm the only one in the department (#1 reason why the job sucks), so i have full control over who has access to what. 

i'd wager that this was more due to the level 1 outage than the surfing though.  not responding fast enough to those kinds of issues can mean all sorts of bad things could happen to the company.  hell, even the appearance you aren't taking it seriously could earn you a trip to the unemployment aisle.

good luck man.

what a hugely stupid move to make.  this ranks up there with the splitting of season 2 dvd and broadcast and the huge ass gap between 3 and 4.  what the frack?  on top of that, you just know they will do the whole 2 dvd per season bull with season 4 now just to get that extra milking from the fans. 

btw, where the F is season 3 set?  it's only been what 6 months since the end of the season? how gods damn long do they want to drag this out?

8695  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / NBC and Apple part ways. say goodbye to itunes episodes on: August 31, 2007, 08:50:30 PM
looks like apple has laid down the banhammer on nbc shows, calling it quits before the contract expires.  the split is mainly because nbc wanted to raise it's per episode price to $5 per episode and wanted tighter drm controls.

i think nbc will be seriously regreting this move come december when their downloads stop.  instead of selling a ton @ $2, they'll sell miniscule amounts for $5.

going to push and try to finish bioshock 360.  psychonauts pc is getting interesting, so if i take a break from bio, that will be why.

i need to decide whether i'll keep playing dead rising or just send it back and wait for a cheap copy to come my way.  it's fun, but there's some good looking games i'd like to rent instead.

Does anyone know if these upgrades are going to carry over from mission to mission, or will you have to do it again on each level?

my guess based on the demo is that you would have to carry over the upgrades in the sp mode to ever reach the top upgrade.  i'd venture that your upgrades only last in mp as long as you are on that server.  maybe the achievement list could shed some light on that.

looks like it does in some form. 
Weapon Virtuoso    40Upgrade all weapons in ranked matches

i like this one:
 icon_twisted
Human Flak Gun    5Kill an enemy player with a grenade while he is parachuting

it's at the top of my gamefly queue. 
8702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]medal of honor airborne demo up now on: August 30, 2007, 05:02:08 PM
not sure i agree with the bit about the upgrades not enhancing the game.  i went back and played the demo on hard last night using the mp40 and k98.  the upgrades for the mp40 were very helpful.  a faster reload really helps early on, but the second is kickass.  a double size clip.  64 rounds of damage with a quick reload = bullet rain.  i see that being a very popular reason to use it mp, and if you can't swap weapons in mp, or get easy access to the german guns, it makes it much more enticing to play as the bad guys in mp.

i was actually bummed when the demo ended.  that doesn't happen all that often. 
8703  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] All remaining 60GB models on store shelves! on: August 30, 2007, 04:54:11 PM
i found this out personally after signing up for the card to get the $150 off deal.  as soon as i got approved, they were out.  said they should be getting more in, but i didn't believe them and didn't want to spring for a slightly larger hard drive and a game i might not like.  luckily, there was a sony store (you still get the credit this way) 20 minutes from work with a 60gb in stock. 

good thing i got that one when i did.  even if they drop the 80gb model, i'd rather have the full hardware compatibility instead.

F*#k the missing sisters.. How the hell you all killing these Big daddies? to be specific the ones that charge at you? I swear, I am down to a min of 3-4 deaths no before I can down one, but with the weapon upgrades I can get them down fast enough.

what's your tactic right now?

i find that loading up the tommy gun with AP rounds is a godsend against the rosies.  they like to keep their distance and pelt you with their rivet guns.  if you get in their face, they'll smack you though.  electro shock, swap to the mg and unload on them.  hide and reload, then right back in.  hit any water they walk through.  i also load the shotty with the electric rounds as a standby. 

against the bouncers, it's a different story though.  they run fast and hit hard.  the above tactic will only work out if you have a s-ton of med kits as you will take damage.  i think there's a tonic which will help though.  the one which procs on melee damage.  i want to try the melee route and hide with the invisibility tonic.  could be a fun cat and mouse fight.

generally, there's two things i recommend you do for each bd once you get the option to do so:

if you have the plasmid to brainwash them, use it.  they'll soak up damage from splicers and with two bd's, you are almost guaranteed to get an easy kill on them both.  just make sure you grab one of the girls after the first bd hits the dirt otherwise she'll run and hide.  happened to me and i had to wait a pretty good time until the pair respawned. 
take as many pics as you can before you attack.  there's some good bonuses to be had.

8706  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]medal of honor airborne demo up now on: August 29, 2007, 06:31:35 PM
tried the 360 demo last night out of curiosity and it really feels like a fun game.  i love the respawn mechanic as it gives you a real choice on how to tackle the objectives.  do i land near the allies and move up as a team, land just behind enemy lines and flank the front line or do i go for a roof top and use height to my advantage?  it's not much on paper, but it really improves the game over a linear progression of  checkpoints. 

having the weapon upgrades feels wierd in a single player game, but i like it.  it gives me a reason to stick with the stock weapon instead of grabbing the first german weapon i see.  the differences are subtly helpful, which means you won't become godlike from just using a level 8. (i think.  i got my loadout up two levels, but later ones could be unbalancing.) 

the only problem i have is speed with swapping the grenade for a gun.  too often i'd end up crouching or something instead of raising the smg. end up dying for this reason.

this went from next year maybe purchase to a solid rental.  i'll wait to see how the mp works out and the length of the sp game. 
8707  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 has Gone Gold! on: August 29, 2007, 06:16:15 PM
the mp coop interests me although the game in general didn't make it into the top 10 fps of all time list.  that last sequence in h1 burned me out on the game.  i never touched h2 and i seriously doubt i'll ever end up with the pc version as the vista premium still sits unopened on my shelf.

i regret not going with liongames for the ce though.  a great price and i could've lived with the shipping delays.

it's really just another casualty of the fourth quarter game glut.

Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2 are more complex than Persona 3, but familiarity with Persona 3 should help with that.

Yeah, Persona 3 is like the gateway drug into SMT.  It really helps to learn the basics like demon types and spell names (which confuse the crap outta me).  I think from an accessibility standpoint it's probably best to tackle the SMT games in reverse order from when they were released this gen:

1) Persona 3
2) Devil Summoner
3) Digital Devil Saga
4) Nocturne
Very well said and I totally agree.  Devil Summoner is a departure from the series... but it's definitely more accessible than DDS1 + 2 and Nocturne.

nocturne was so overwhelming at first, that i went and bought the strat guide.  seeing that and how much time the game would suck up pretty much killed any momentum going in. 

dark cloud 2 also sits in a similar category.  when i hear someone say "i spent over 200 hours in dc2" i find it much harder to get going. 

not sure what changed about me, but my devotion to long rpg's has been declining for a long time.  not since the 99 hours i put into ff7 an age ago have i played any one game for so long.

i might recommend dc1 over dc2 just because the world building aspect is toned down. 

surprised noone has mentioned the xenosaga games.   icon_twisted

after what, 8-ish hours, i'm still enjoying it quite a lot.  i'm tooling around with the houdini splicers and the plant lady.  damn those things are annoying.  glad i picked up the upgraded shock plasmid.  it looks like one of them just keeled over in one hit after i hit the water pool he was standing in. 

getting the bd's to fight each other is great fun and well worth going through with slightly hobbled adam levels. 

how much of the game have i finished?

i need to get the materials for the lazarus vaccine.
