Also, HBO's Carnivale, Seasons 1 & 2, are both on a very good sale at Amazon, +60% off : $19.99 each (& both in stock too, which was the problem w/ BB's sale from last week). Was actually looking for Rome S.2 when I noticed the pricing on the Carnivales. Always heard good things about Carnivale, so picked them up too. So Merry Christmas to me. Thnx Kniightshade.

I'd like to pick those up, but then I remember HBO cancelled the series and we'll never know how it ends.

I've noticed that we can spend a couple bronze talents on fist-fighting.  Is it worth getting these for the mini-game (I assume its for money and/or information)

I bought them so I could have a better chance at making money off of fist fighting- it really didn't penalize me in any way and by then end of the game I pretty much had every bronze talent anyways.

yeah, I wouldn't call it a bomb until the international numbers are tallied up- they usually eat this stuff up.

New Line financed most of the budget by selling off international rights.  They won't see much money at all from its performance overseas. 

wow, that was a fairly rsky (and looking right now like a dumb) move.  $180 million on a relatively unknown property* is kind of ridiculous.



*as compared to Lord of the Rings or Chronicles of Narnia.

I'm with everyone else here mostly, I think the CoD series needs to stay out of WWII, so like many of you, I view this as a backwards step. I still think the WWII genre has some potentially awesome gaming left in it, but it has been played out a bit by the sheer huge number of games. Vietnam, Gulf War 1, and Korea both are areas that should be looked at for shooter games.

I'd love to see Infinity Ward do a Vietnam game.  I think they could beat the greatness of the first Vietcong.

I enjoyed Halo 3 - but honestly don't think that the title really deserved to even be nominated for game of the year.

As for some of the other things..
Studio of the year??? What the hell kind of category is that? What do they rate it on? Quality of games produced? Fun atmosphere to work at? etc? Didn't all of those studios only produce a single game this year?

And yeah the whole Halo 3 fueled by Dew award is ridiculous.



well Valve technically had 3 games  icon_wink

Holy crap, 47 people here have PS3's? I'm impressed.

I also didn't know we had 62 PSP owners in the house.  Other than the JRPG/TBS games PSP hardly gets any mention around here.

I'm surprised there are more Wii owners than PS3 owners, considering how hard it is to find a Wii.

Apparently this movie bombed so badly that it is going to put New Line back for a bit. 200 million plus marketing that made around 25 million. I wouldn't expect a sequel.

It's only been out a couple days, right?  I know that movies generally make the majority in the first week, but coming up on the Christmas break for kids I would expect higher numbers in a couple weeks.  Not to mention the international crowd, DVDs, etc. 

yeah, I wouldn't call it a bomb until the international numbers are tallied up- they usually eat this stuff up.

I've left Tali and Liara with just their pistols and they do fine.  I mop up what's left with my rifle.

And I love watching geth flying through the air. Next time I'm playing pure biotic.

yeah, that was fun when I used Liara for Noveria but there were times when I just wanted to smack her and say 'leave some killing for me goddammit!'.

I was looking through my achievements and I guess any future character is guaranteed the pistol and sniper rifle skills.  I also got the Tactician one for taking more shield damage than health damage.  I'm not sure why I didn't get the Quarian Ally one- other than Noveria I used Tali for almost the rest of the game.

Was also hoping to find some weird geth device for Tali to take, but I suppose saving the galaxy is her gift to her people.

there was one mission where you find some info on the Geth to give to her, but that was all I found.  I have a feeling the Quarians will play a big role in part 2 or 3, what with her background and all.

Oh and what's the deal with the Asari Consort?  Is the only mission you get from her that first one on the citadel?

Unless I somehow missed something the only thing she does is give you that trinket.

I am a pure soldier using Tali and Liara the whole way, and its kind of crazy powerful when you learn what powers to use when and where and with my shields and tanking ability.

I am just completely loving this game and I'm doing the same thing as you Calvin.  I've been relying on Liara and Tali to complement my battle abilities and we totally kick ass.  I just left so my allies auto-use their powers and it's great to see 3-4 enemies floating up on the ceiling while we fill them full of holes.

I've done every sidequest possible as I play through the game and I just finished talking to Wrex on Virmire.  I'm level 41 or 42 I think.  Virmire is flat out gorgeous and the cutscene of the landing just left me with a big stupid grin on my face.

I am way behind you (moved this week and everything got put on hold for the last week), but I love it too-I think its the best complimentary trio possible, because your companions are pure 100% classes-the hybrids are fun, but not necessarily that strong. I am only allowing them to use their powers automatically on defense however-I have too much fun casting the powers myself to let them do it on offense biggrin I am loving the game so far, hope to make some serious progress this weekend.

Wrex and Garrus get retarded powerful.  Because they can both wield the soldier-only weapons (Assault rifles), and Wrex can use heavy armor.  In fact, even though my soldier had heavy armor, the best human heavy armor wasn't anywhere near as good as the best turian medium or krogan heavy that I found.  Garrus' class skill even increases damage and accuracy with the assault/sniper rifles, and his electronics ability gives him ridiculous shields.  Same with Wrex's barrier ability (ridiculous shields).  Garrus also gets assault training, giving him access to adrenaline burst...meaning he can use his abilities that much faster.

Match Wrex's biotics and Garrus' tech skills with their combat abilities...and I saw no reason even to bother using Liara or Tali much.  Tali I used more often, since she can get pretty mean with a shotgun, but Liara could only use a pistol, and not very well.  Once she shot her load with the biotics, she was basically worthless until they recycled.  Yeah I used her a little, but just found that with Garrus and Wrex I'd ruin anything in the room super fast.

I never used Wrex and only used Garrus on the one mission to find the Doctor.  I always brought Tali along for her tech skills and Ashley because she's hot, and never really had a problem cleaning house.

so, anyone else see the movie yet?  I got bored Saturday afternoon and went to see it, and I can't decide if I liked it or didn't like it- I feel strangely neutral about it.  It looks like the series has potential, but the pacing seemed off and I also have a feeling I'd appreciate it better if I read the book.
