Won't be playing with any of you cuz you all are all 360 players no doubt, but just thought I'd mention that I got a copy today at Target for the PS3.  Had the 360, PS3, and PS2 version out for sell.  I am in Tulsa and got this at the 21st Target.  Probably HUGE ymmv, but thought I'd mention it just in case someone else gets lucky.

of course this never seems to happen up here in washington. 

have fun mikeg.  how about some impressions when you get some time in?

don't worry too much pete.  it's still about 2 months away before fo3 and mass effect can be beaten in less time than that, especially if you take a more moderate approach to finishing side quests.  even if you do everything, you still won't hit 120 hours in one playthrough.

The difficulty adjustment suggestion was key. 

glad to have helped you there pete.  smile 

i think my current replay will stall out soon though.  i decided to go back to bully before mercs 2 hits, and then that should last through to the next big release. 

it may be some time before i get back to oblivion.  hopefully before fallout 3.
8685  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alone in the Dark impressions (processing) on: August 28, 2008, 04:33:54 PM
cheapest price is through gamefly for the console versions.  i could have kept the 360 version for ~$23.  it was a hard decision to make sending it back, and if they had sent me the price drop email sooner, i may have kept it then.
8686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: August 27, 2008, 05:02:16 PM
pete, drop the difficulty level down to the minimum.  sure it could be considered cheating, but who the hell cares?  it's your game and playing through the way you are is only pissing you off.  at least then you get through the 8-10 capital A-hole enemies without making every room an epic battle.

i agree though, the gates sucked after a while. 
8687  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: 48 Hr Madness - Alone in the Dark $15, Star Wars games $6 on: August 27, 2008, 04:46:30 PM
i had some fun with it on the 360, and i do think it has potential.  that said, i sent my rental copy back in the hope that the 360 version gets patched as thoroughly as the ps3 version. 

$15 is not much to give it a try, and with a pc patch on the way, it's not a huge risk.
8688  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Gran Turismo 5 Prologue - $22.99 on: August 27, 2008, 04:44:27 PM

8689  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBL: Castle Crashers Impressions on: August 27, 2008, 04:42:12 PM
i need to get net access back to get this one downloaded.
8690  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Preview] Hands-On with Fable II on: August 27, 2008, 04:41:41 PM
oddly enough, release day shipping for this is cheaper than every option except 3-5 day.  not sure what's up with that.  of course, being in washington state, i get to pay sales tax on this, so it comes up to 79 and change, basically saving me the cost of tax.  hmmm...

i must have missed the extra dungeon content earlier.  

oh what the hell.  ordered.  look for me in the funky green armor.
8691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How do I get the Fallout 3 CE version? on: August 27, 2008, 12:40:36 AM
it's a simple stamped metal hook bottle opener with a raised gel graphic and a magnet on the back so it will stick to the lunchbox
8692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 4 might be developed by Gearbox on: August 27, 2008, 12:37:52 AM
do it as a squad based game ala bia and you have a deal.  make it a prequel game set with a soldier squad during first contact/conflict and then introduce the spartans. 

i really hope they don't just make this another solo centric affair with co-op added in.  while cool, the universe could be used for bigger things.

I like what the review said, bit damn was that not poorly written!

Bael

Agreed - you're left with still wondering exactly what spore is and will it be fun. I'm holding fire at the moment till more reviews and impressions are in.

Tals

i did like how he timelined the creature he played as.  it wasn't the best written review, but made the game sound interesting despite the flaws he mentions.  damn.  one more game to move into the buy pile.
8695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How do I get the Fallout 3 CE version? on: August 26, 2008, 05:55:19 PM
did you get it at bb?  i saw they had it with a nuka cola bottle opener, so i ended up getting a second preorder (craziness) but it works out as the coupon inside is for $5 off the strat guide, which i was already considering.  it will go nicely with the lunchbox, maybe not so much with work
8696  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: The Official GT Trader Feedback List (updated 4/08) on: August 26, 2008, 05:52:59 PM
+1 to Gratch for fast shipping and good price on oblivion - 360.

8699  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Preview] Hands-On with Fable II on: August 25, 2008, 07:12:17 PM
unlikely to get the CE as it's $20 more than usual above the standard ce price and doesn't have anything that really stands out for me.
8700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (8/25) on: August 25, 2008, 05:04:17 PM
mercs 2.  360.  day one, with just enough time to play it before a trip on monday.  IU is awaiting reviews and for me to push through lost odyssey. 
8701  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBL/PSN]Star Wars :The Force Unleashed demo Impressions on: August 21, 2008, 09:52:15 PM
only got a few moments with the game before my boss came into the office  ninja.  he joked about it though and he knows how burnt out i am so it's not going to be a big deal.  i didn't stay long though as i really just wanted to see it for a moment anyways.  played just long enough to through a tie at some storm troopers.  not very good at that yet though. 

saw a few moments of euphoria engine goodness, and it looks/feels pretty cool.  looking forward to giving this a full turn at home.
8702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Alone in the Dark vastly improved on: August 21, 2008, 09:47:50 PM
cool.  i really hope they get all of the important stuff into the 360 patch.  i've been holding on to my rental for some deluded hope that i might get past the damn "when bats attack" drive through the park bit. 

i hope they just forgot to mention the pc patch for both people who bought that version and haven't tossed it out yet.

3)anyone know if there is any kind of Online?...hopefully there will be a decent amount of DLC


Last I saw somewhere...there won't be an online

hmm,not that suprised really about no online mode,just thinkiing of a way to extend the game,as i can see right now that this will be a playthrough on one or two difficulty levels and then i'm done(still wont be as bad as Lost:via domus though,LOL).. i hope its a decent size story


never did play jedi knight 2 icon_frown

too bad it's so damn hard to find nowadays.  were i not in possession of one of the CE copies (with flashing light saber keychain) i would send you mine. 

jedi academy is also somewhat hard to find these days, but well worth it if you can get a copy.  not only did you have the dismemberment code, you could also choose whether to use one or two sabers or the staff saber darth maul used.

8705  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pre-order Banjo Kazooie N&B, get original free on: August 21, 2008, 05:25:34 PM
very likely in because of this deal.  it sounds almost fun enough on it's own, and i would love to play bk on xbla. 
8706  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBL/PSN]Star Wars :The Force Unleashed demo this thursday?..really this time on: August 21, 2008, 05:23:54 PM
it's always amazed me that whenever lucas put saber on flesh contact in the movies, someone lost a limb.  in the games, we get nothing. 

full dismemberment code was a blast though.  throwing a saber through a group of troopers was such a fun visceral experience and it was something to see how many limbs littered the ground afterwards. 

damn, i may have to go back to jedi outcast or academy just for that.  force jump, force pull a trooper up, land and wait for the body to hit.   icon_twisted

if this hits the same sweet spot as those games, this will definitely move up to my buy list, length be damned
8707  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Too Human Impressions on: August 21, 2008, 05:17:30 PM
if it weren't for merc2 hitting the shelves before you know it, i might have grabbed this.  they really should have released this early july for a good reception.  mid to late august means it's so close to the fall onslaught (something overlord pulled off pretty well last year)

at least it sounds good and that the reviewers may have been in a tough mood when they reviewed it.
8708  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (8/18) on: August 20, 2008, 09:02:49 PM
yeah, it's pretty annoying.  instead of getting it a few days earlier and having the whole weekend to blow S up, now it's about going out into the sunday shopping crowd and getting fewer hours to play with it.
8709  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 160 gig on its way/PSP the 3rd also on: August 20, 2008, 09:01:11 PM
sony really hurts themselves with this move as they could entice the download market much more by advertising how easy it is to swap the drive.  put in the 40gb and then partner up with hdd makers and offer a discount on a much bigger one.  directly challenge MS' expensive single option and get that price down.  and seriously consider adding an older game like uncharted or ratchet & clank in the bundle without jacking the price like they did with the motorstorm bundle.

and a new psp?  methinks this has more to do with getting the already hackable psp's hardware replaced with something more resilient.  aka pandora proof.  this is not news to me, frankly, as the hackers had already uncovered references in the firmware updates to a new motherboard months ago.  they are also the ones who found similar references to the psp slim before it was announced. 
8710  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBOX 360 controller redesign on: August 20, 2008, 08:52:44 PM
damn that design pic looks stupid.  not only can you not use the pad for analog games, but you can't use the buttons with the d pad.  nevermind the mindfrack of swapping left hand movement, right hand view/action. 

oh well, i guess we'll just have to mod our own stuff if we want a decent d pad for anything other than slow games. 
8711  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Firefly on Blu-Ray Official on: August 20, 2008, 04:53:23 PM
let's see if this gets past the logical purchase sensors. 

dvd set, $25 when i got it on sale.  looks good enough upscaled on a 1080i hdtv. 
bd set, $90 with no likely good sale price for some time.  will look better, but not leagues above what i have.  plus, like ceekay says, it hits dead center in the middle of a hugely expensive game season. 

no deal.  not enough extras to warrant a purchase any time soon.

GTA: SA Impressions       on: October 25, 2004, 05:24:14 PM
i'm not expecting any real impressions yet.  just oohs and ahhs.  do please throw us a bone if you can though. 


stuck at work for another 40 mins or so.  then an hour drive.  than waiting until they sell it.  then waiting until the guy i got buying my copy gets over to my house.  i should have a copy later tonight,  play it for 10 minutes and then have to go to sleep.  blech!

lucky bastiges.

most of my first posts were about SA, halo 2 (??) and r&c: uya. 

ah good times.

don't worry, we'll play it enough for you too.

8714  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 5 months left! what are you buying? on: August 19, 2008, 05:35:09 PM
first day or close enough
Fallout 3 - my most anticipated game of '08 left
Fable 2 - moved up from the maybe list.  'nuff said
Mercenaries 2 - 1/3rd of the first big reason i bought a 360.  let's hope it earns the silver medal behind gta4
Far Cry 2 - wide open world in africa.  something unique and it looks great
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky - loved the first, this is a great way to revisit the game world
Aliens: Colonial Marines - this one came out of nowhere and granted a wish i have had since aliens online and only briefly glimpsed in the avp games. 

interested in, but wait for reviews/sales
Ghostbusters - very likely to get bumped up. 
Batman: Arkham Asylum - if it releases this year, that is.
Rock Band 2 - while i love rb, i am not that great at it. 
Saints Row 2 - looks like a great take on the sandbox genre, but i think mercs 2 will be a better fit for now.
Force Unleashed - very much looking forward to the demo on this to make my final judgment.
Infinite Undiscovery - looks/sounds good, but i have vowed to finish lost odyssey before picking up another jrpg to sit on the shelf.
Resistance 2 - still have R1 to finish up.
Gears of War 2 - while i will miss the mp launch goodness, i never really dug the first one.
Dead Space - feels like bioshock in space, but i think i will end up waiting a bit on it.
Spore - beware of the hype.  i am holding my self back from this for a bit.
Shaun White Snowboarding - one of the few wii games i am actually looking forward to. 
Tomb Raider: Underworld - loved TR legend, but this one gets bumped back to next year for me.
yakuza 2 - need to find/play yak 1, but this sounds pretty cool
persona 4 - it would be stupid to get this as i still haven't unwrapped p3:fes, but you never know. 
Mirror's Edge - not sure how much fun this is just yet.
Colonization - another sid production, but i never seem to get enough playtime with the pc these days and have barely touched civ 4 bts
The Last Remnant - see note about jrpg and lost odyssey.
Sacred 2 - could be a great thing until d3 comes, but there's been very little news about it, so i am a little wary.

only ~350, so much less than last year around this time.  but there's a lot of maybe's to consider. 
a tough year to be sure.
8715  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Preview] Hands-On with Fable II on: August 18, 2008, 09:48:14 PM
sweet.  nice write up again Ron.  i'll let it all sink in and then ask some questions later. 

i wonder how much of the world will be altered by your actions, these so named "dynamic areas".  worth a second play through i would bet.  any word on how large the world is?  how open it was when you were running around?  any glitches in the graphics at this point?  were there dynamic environmental sounds?  background music?  how alive did the world feel; animals, realistic lighting and shadows, character animation?

it's going to be good.  another game to squeeze into the fall 08 madness with mercs and fallout.
