I haven't had a chance to play much past the demo area, but I haven't had any issues with the suit energy.  Of course I keep on forgetting to use the suit powers and go for raw firepower.  can you pick up a palm tree and swing it like a bat with the strength mode?

So...is Blizzard desperate for new subscribers or something?

I doubt it- I bet someone got wasted one night, came up with the idea and it turned into comedy gold.  They need to get Chuck Norris to do one.

Bloodwise, I guess it's keeping SOF II's tradition -- on "full violence" mode, the amount of limb-letting and blood spray would make you either throw up or start laughing at the sheer over-the-topness.

they showed us the tv cut, a few glimpses of scenes from the extended dvd version, and a few scenes from season 4. looks interesting, and i can't wait for it to start.

too bad it looks like we won't see any of S4 until April  disgust

april?!  wtf?  i thought it was late january. 

That was before the writer's strike.

grrr.  i figured that was already written.

I think they only have 10 or 11 episodes done before the strike anyways.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Man I was bummed that Gaz got killed.  Looks like Price dies as well.  I was pretty bummed out after all that. 

I loved the game.  What a cinematic experience.  I'll play through again.

What's the deal with the Mile High Club?  Any info on what that was released?

not as far as I know.

hmmm.. OK, combat isn't as clunky as I thought it would be.  The texture pop up is kind of annoying though.  I'm having a hard time deciding whether to finish AC or continue on with this though, which I wasn't expecting.

I just know that when people do stay respectful, some of the most interesting discussion can come out of these kinds of subjects, even if at the end nobody has convinced the other side to defect.

When has one side EVER convinced the other side when it comes to politics or religion?

That's not really the point. It's fun to argue sometimes, and you often learn more about other's ideas and are forced to research your own beliefs more in order to argue them. A Christian will never convert me but they can give me stuff to think about and force me to think outside of the way I currently think. You learn from discussing/debating opposite viewpoints, that is the point.

Agreed.  Even if the other side is thick as bricks, it's still fun for me to post my thoughts in witty ways.  It's an amusing mental exercise and keeps me from doing my actual job.

It was nice being able to pick up dead players weapons and try them out instead of no weapons dropping at all.

Maybe I'm missing something, but weapons drop in the 360 version too...

???

I was worried they'd pull something cheap like no weapons dropping since people are able to unlock new ones.

I noticed it's set to off by default.

Damn it!  I can't remember whether the rumbly goodness was there the last time I played.  Shit, now I'm going to be thinking about it all day instead of working.  biggrin

I got in some more playtime last night- I'm at a boss fight with a helicopter gunship where apparently you only have 3 RPG shots to take it down  saywhat  I fired them off, hit it once and missed the other 2 times, and then couldn't find any more ammo.

On the plus side I haven't had any enemies shoot me through walls yet.

Times like these I miss Hetz.

And this thread is lame.  At least put a picture of Jade Raymond in your first post or something.

Here you go:



Hello my adoring fan(boy)s, I'm Jade Raymond! I had absolutely no involvement in Mass Effect, but I look good and you should buy this game to support Bioware!

It's out today. Go get your copy!

Went to Best Buy on my lunch hour and they didn't have any out on the floor - they still had the pre-order boxes.    crybaby

The lady saw me looking crushed and I asked her if they had any copies of Mass Effect.  She said "Sure I'll get one from the back."  3 minutes later she returned with my copy, smiling like a radiant angel.

I took it back to my office and opened it up.  I tried to remove that metallic anti-theft sticky thing behind the manual (after all I bought the damn thing with my hard earned money) and one of the metal wires came loose and stuck into my thumb!  So now Mass Effect has cost me blood, sweat and (almost) tears.

now if you had intended to post in poor mike's thread that wouldn't have happened.

it looks like he has a harness and rope attached to him.

the fact that there have been problems on xbox live as well,i was wondering have there been any problems on PC?


PC plays perfectly...but I think it's a very different setup.

I tried some MP on the PC version last night and had no issues playing.  It was nice being able to pick up dead players weapons and try them out instead of no weapons dropping at all.

Holy crap dude - you're hard core.

I don't think I've ever know anyone who used a whole week of PTO for a game. The most I've ever used was just a single day (for the day that Halo 2 came out).

I never get sick and we don't really take vacations, so I have a bad habit of never using my PTO during the year.  Figured that this year I'd use up a few chunks around some game releases instead of just losing a couple weeks at the end of the year.  I've got some "honey-do's" around the house as well, which will take up some of the time.  But Mrs. Gratch has already approved for me to sit on the couch and bang on plastic drums all week.  smile

plus there's nothing like being paid to play games.

Ah, but I'm from cunning New Brunswickian (sp?!) stock, which is why I had it shipped to the mail room at work.

Also, we're a casual dress office, so pants are not required.

Lemme get this straight:

a) you work for Microsoft (ipso facto everyone has free 360s)
b) you had your Rock Band shipped to the mail room.
c) Your office has no pants required.

I think we can safely assume that some mailroom dude's balls are gonna be pressed up against your new Rock band guitar while he jams out between mail-drops.

You've violated my personal CoC which prohibits speculation that encompasses mailrooms, my possessions, and balls.  You're temporarily banned from posting on those topics for 3 days...

just cause he can't post about it doesn't mean it isn't happening.
