only 5k per tick?  i'm over 12k per tick and got over half a mil the last time i logged in.  every building in bowerstone minus the castle, and every thing in the pirate town, the starting town, and everything in the city by the arena and everything is priced at 0%.

i still have a handful of quests to finish up, and the main quest too. 

curious, but how much is the castle?  i thought the haunted one was expensive, but at least it gives you a payback at the end.

Eh she's just a porn star?  I was hoping she was just some random girl-that would be more hot.  Her face doesn't do much for me, but man what a body.

yeah, it kind of takes away from the allure doesn't it?

played 4 of 5 levels in the 'no mercy' campaign last night, and i definitely think this has more potential than the cod5 zombie mode.  mainly, there is a survivable goal here as you do progress through the levels assuming you have a good squad.  that's a major hurdle right now.  out of the 8 or so i played with, 3 were constantly running off and getting the horde to aggro on them without backup.  i was constantly seeing so-and-so has been attacked by the witch/tank/hunter/smoker, etc and need help/reviving, or even a respawn. 

sadly, the group i was with just couldn't pull it together long enough to get past the final round before leaving and the ai is just useless in that level.  wading down into the ranks of the undead instead of standing back and working as a group.   i grabbed the minigun and found nobody covering me; attacked from behind.

this game will live or die based on how big the online community gets, and tbh, i don't think this will be all that enjoyable a year from now after the population has moved on.

also, the ai director is a dick.  that last level i was:

hit by the tank and left hanging on the far SE end of the map off a building while an ai partner stood and watched, never moving to help.  none of the human players could figure out where i was, despite the glowing outline around friendlies. 

later on, i was dragged by the first smoker who got to the top of the building in front of the office and was left hanging until 80% of my health was gone just moments after the horde was triggered.

i had a great time while it was good though, and this is the first game in a while which demands good coordination by everyone to survive.  lettuce, we need to have a night and play this with some good people.  we're missing out in favor of everything else imo.

had a great round last night on roundhouse hc.  pug ended up on the other side this time and it was a bunch of regular livers playing.  i took my now regular camo-silenced g43 kit and the perk for faster rank reloading. glad i did 

nobody had taken the tank outside the central building, so i grabbed it to keep it out of the enemies' hands (and especially pug's).  i then went on a 22 kill streak dude

i held off multiple attacks from every front and was able to avoid the panzer and grenade attacks with a saint's luck.  i lasted longer than the other tank and almost went with a deathless round, but there was no way the other team would let me get away with that biggrin

that single handedly turned my night around after a smattering of less than .5 k/d rounds.

damn fine night that was.

for all of you who bought the premium themes and had problems, this probably will just piss you off even more. 

this friday, ms is offering most of those themes for a discount.  180pts

there's a large list of arcade games going on sale too, most notably rez for 500

here's a bunch of the pics showing all of the black friday deals.

terrible in many ways, alone in the dark gets my vote this year.  it could have been so much better, and by all accounts, the ps3 version fixes it and makes the game more enjoyable, but the publicized stink on this game kills any chance of getting a sequel.  and for that, it warrants not only a crappy game label, but a franchise killer as well.

Dogmeat should be at the Scenic Outlook just outside 101.  However, sometimes he gets stuck in the ground, perhaps he can even fall through the ground.

Starshifter, about your Megaton issues:
It's not a cutscene, you can still move, and most importantly, you can still shoot and use VATS in that segment.

He's definitely not outside vault 101.  If you get another companion dos Dogmeat go away for good?

nope.  you can have both at the same time.  this is from the guide

Can anyone check their box and tell me if there's split-screen co-op or Vs and if system link play is supported for this game. I'm doing some planning for a 360 LAN party this Friday and I'm looking for another game to rent or purchase. Based on some of the feedback here and reviews I've read, I know this is a game I want to play myself. Some of the feedback for the PC version described some good mplay as well. I'd go to for my answers, but I've recently found their game listings/descriptions to be very inaccurate.

box says players 1-16, link 2-16, plus mplayer 2-16.

confirming in game...

no split screen play, just lan linking.

yeah, it's a mix of every system, but it's pretty easy to guess that cheaper copies of a game would be the ps2/wii version and the console versions. 

of course, the code stacks with any other codes you have and you can use it on anything you have rented out now.
9698  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Gamefly's $10 off deal on: November 25, 2008, 07:06:45 PM
they just sent me an email with a $10 off code for any game over 30 bucks.  only good until the first though.  if you have their service, check your email.

any game over 30 before discounts is eligible so you can theoretically get a game for a decent chunk under 20 bucks.  pretty good deal if you ask me.

eurogamer has a great article comparing hdd loads against disc loads. 

they found some great results (hl2) and some minimal ones, and also saw where developers have implemented great 'shadow loading' procedures, ie load the level while the cinematic loads (gow2) to surprisingly worse load times (halo 3). 

sadly, no great increase was made when it came to Elevator Riding Extreme aka mass effect.

We would be frustrated to still be in Afghanistan, but the American people would accept it much better than what has gone on with Iraq.

There would still be saber rattling towards Iraq but with Iran getting the bomb? both Iraq and the US would be looking at them.

Bush would be leaving the presidency dis-liked by the left but still with some respect. McCain may have won the presidency.

this sounds perfectly reasonable.  bush's approval rating wouldn't be approaching single digits. 

i have to wonder, how would this have affected the current economic crisis?  slowdown in housing market would still have occurred but would not big enough to drag down the big banks. 

biggest change would be not looking a dem controlled legislative branch though.

wife and i saw this last night, and while it was pretty good, i felt it came off more like a harry potter meets m.i.b. and it wasn't written as well.  the story took some detours a little too far, and the whole spear point business fell flat.  i also miss the extra cast that were in hb1 and that niles crane didn't voice abe this time.  it all felt like they had to cut out too much and picked up some of the threads while dropping the more important ones. 

i did like the story sequence though;  the animation style was pretty cool and i would watch a feature length film using it.

not only is veteran a ridiculously stupid exercise in "how high can you get your blood boiling", but hardened is almost as bad.  i have been trudging through the sp on hardened and it's easily taking me 1.5 times as long to get past.  areas like the sniper battle in stalingrad took half a night to get past due to the ai's one shot kill vs my two hits plus his instantly knowing exactly where i was at all times bs.  the pacific mission with you in the trenches and a flamethrower was also pretty puzzle-like as you had to know in advance where the enemy would pop up.  on top of that, the ai always exhibits two flaws.  enemies target you over your buddies whenever possible, even when you are 1/10th exposed as they are, and your buddies take 5x as many rounds to kill anyone, even an enemy in open cover. 

if i hadn't already committed to 2/3rds of the campaign, i would be restarting on normal.  i won't bother with veteran unless i get the need to scream insanities at a tv screen and replace a controller.
