anyways, I got my first taste of the Mako last night, and I can't say I'm overly fond of it.  I ended up fighting a giant worm and it pretty much boiled down to driving in circles and occassionally shooting at it for 10 minutes.  The vehicle controls like it weighs next to nothing.

You did use the cannon (RB) in addition to the machine gun (RT), right? Also, keep in mind that unless you're in a sniper cam in the Mako (push Right Analog while holding Left Trigger) the turret can't keep up with you driving around in circles, or quickly at all. Just move slowly against those opponents and stay the holy heck out of melee range, even if they don't turn towards you when they fire (as it's a visual glitch).

yeah, I figured out the cannon and jump jets, the combat just seemed to take forever.

But to play the open door mini-game, you basically play Simon Says. Push the button as it comes up. You only have a second to push each button, so make it quick.

too bad your electronics or encryption skills don't seem to give you any advantage for that mini-game.

As always, we’re reading the forums, getting your feedback, and seeing your desires for Hellgate. The biggest issue we’re currently working on is the client-side memory usage issue. This is very complex and involved, and we also know that it’s a major issue for users. We’re pouring all of our energies right now into working on the game, so if you don’t see us reply to your posts it doesn’t mean we aren’t listening. It just means we’re working hard to make Hellgate: London a better and better experience.

I dunno, being not a developer and all, but maybe you should've been making sure shit like this doesn't happen BEFORE launch!

Yes, this 'issue' keeps me from playing at max detail levels on Vista because otherwise I crash within an hour or less due to running out of memory.

yeah, that's pretty much why I'm cancelling my subscription.  I can't fund idiocy- if I did I'd contribute to the Republican Party.

This is the PS2 version, only one they had at EB.

The more I thought about it today, the more I got pissed........it's basically the same game, which wouldn't be that big a deal if it wasn't for the $40 price.

do you think it would be worth it for someone who's never played any of the other Godzilla games?

well I want a high def dvd player and blu ray seems to be the obvious choice, so ps3 seems to be the best buy here.  Plus they do finally sem to be getting some decent games finally. I plan on buying one later this week actually.

I got to watch some non-Blu Ray DVD's on one and it upscale quite nicely.  So nicely that I'm going to break my rule about using a console as a DVD player to solve my HDMI conundrum.

Sound like an issue that your TV is overscanning a few too many lines, and things are being cut off on the bottom as a result.

well crud.  I tried finding any info on that last night with no luck.  maybe it's time for a new set.

300% seems like a pretty large number, I'll be surprised of the PS3 produces numbers close to the 360 considering each platform's respective fall lineup.

depends on what it's 300% from.  If we're talking 300% up from 100 then sure, it's a larger number  slywink
